Sneaky and Stupid...
While you were distracted by BREXIT, Monsanto's puppets in the U.S. Senate announced a 'compromise' to outlaw GMO labeling laws nationwidethis announcement from the United States Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, committee leaders have reached a "bipartisan agriculture biotechnology compromise solution."
What exactly is this so-called "compromise?"
The complete banning of all GMO labeling state laws across America.
And that's just for starters. After that, this new "compromise" decrees that no foods shall be GMO labeled for two years while the USDA ponders the best way to deceive consumers and hide Monsanto's GMOs for another few years. The suggested law also gives the USDA the right to decree that any foods with less than 50% bioengineered content could be considered non-GMO, by the way.
As a bonus surrender to Monsanto, the law would also not require animal products derived from GMO-fed animals to be considered bioengineered at all. So cattle feedlots can pump cows full of GMOs and glyphosate for years, then sell the resulting beef as "all natural."
Finally, after two years, the USDA would then roll out a nationwide rule that would only require food companies to place a scannable QR code on their labels. Consumers would then have to carry mobile phones with them to scan all the codes in order to determine what's really GMO. As stated in the proposed law:
...the form of a food disclosure under this section be a text, symbol, or electronic or digital link...
In other words, "GMO labeling" doesn't actually have to consist of words or any meaningful symbol. So it's all a farce. This is how the food industry can claim they've agreed to label GMOs without actually labeling GMOs. It's all more subterfuge and collusion between Monsanto and lawmakers... is anyone surprised?
See this QR code image? It is unreadable by humans, and that's one purpose. The U.S. Senate is literally trying to roll out a nationwide GMO "labeling" law that would result in labels which cannot be read by human beings. How's that for being a functioning legislative prostitute for Monsanto?
U.S. Senate going all out to keep you in the dark about GMO foodsIn other words, the so-called "compromise" proclaimed by the Senate committee is actually a law that bans clear GMO labeling nationwide and only requires foods to be labeled with digital codes that can only be read by machine (which don't even eat food).
You can't make this stuff up. Somehow, all the other mandatory food labeling requires words or numbers, but when it comes to GMOs, the Senate's attempts to hide and bury this information are so insidious that they've gone with machine language code. Can you imagine if they stripped away ingredients lists and nutrition facts and replaced those labeling sections with machine language code, too? It's basically one giant "F-U" to food consumers from the United States Senate.

Republicans are pushing agricultural poisons while Democrats are pushing monetary suicideNote that all the poisons of agriculture -- GMOs, glyphosate, pesticides, etc. -- are most aggressively pushed by establishment Republicans. These individuals even look like they've been poisoning themselves with age-accelerating chemicals, too, and none of them have any scientific understanding of how agricultural chemicals (like glyphosate) harm human health.
Like I've repeated reminded Natural News readers, Republicans are scientifically illiterate, while Democrats are economically illiterate. You can no more have an intelligent conversation with an establishment Republican about the devastating environmental impact of glyphosate than you can talk to an establishment Democrat about compounding interest on the national debt. The topics just don't compute in their heads. They are all cognitively retarded on certain subjects and incapable of engaging in rational thought.
And so we're all having toxic poisons shoved down our throats, all across America, while the political establishment ridiculously claims they're mandating "labeling" by having food companies place unreadable machine language codes on their products. What a pathetic farce. What an insult to our intelligence...
Is it any wonder the people are in a state of REVOLT against bad government all around the world? By the way, Hillary Clinton is also a Monsanto puppet. A vote for Hillary is a vote for Monsanto.
If you're wondering who's running this current GMO labeling scam in the Senate, it's Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, and Debbie Stabenow, D-Michigan.
Call your U.S. Senator NOW and tell them you strongly oppose this "DARK ACT" GMO labeling compromise. It's all a biotech industry scam that's designed to outlaw meaningful GMO labeling!
