NAIS, bogus Avian Flu epidemic, and biotech (Monsanto as one) plans for our animals

NAIS appears to be a corporate plan to eliminate real farming and take over total control of our food supply through wiping out normal animals (as is being done with seeds) and replacing them with genetically engineered animals that are patented and wholly owned by multinationals.  The economics of that are complete enslavement of a population dependent on a single corporately controlled food source and the politics are massively totalitarian. 

On the health side, the biotech/agribusiness corporations will do to animals what they began doing with rBGH - having them pump out a perverted version of whatever is of value as well as using their bodies to generate genetically engineered drugs and more.  The disease ramifications are endless.  The financial bonanza to the pharmaceutical companies (of which Monsanto is a major one) of a population trapped in such a sickness generating system is infinite. 

What follows repeats from another article a communication between chapter leaders of the Weston A. Price Foundation in Wisconsin where Emmanuel Miller, an Amish farmer has been charged by the state for refusing to register with Premises ID under NAIS, an act which  is against his deepest religious beliefs.  Right now, the Amish and Mennonite's religious rights and the desperate efforts of our small farmers are all that stand between us and the questions raised in the following email because the public is not aware.

I repeat the questions here to try to ensure they are seen and the implications are considered by people who have until now fallen for the "NAIS is for food safety" argument of corporations which caused the diseases, block inspections, and obfuscate all labeling.

Though it is an informal message between various leaders, the questions asked raise more and more profound issues none of which have yet become known to the American public or entered the intense debate over NAIS to which our disappearing American farmers are desperately opposed.   These questions must be answered.  And anything Monsanto is involved in, must be questioned - including, first and foremost, Obama's nomination of Tom Vilsack - a close Monsanto buddy and a strong supporter of NAIS, a Monsanto project - to run the USDA, the agency pushing NAIS.

Many of you may know that Wisconsin's Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection (DATCP) told dairy farmers who did not sign a Premises ID that they would not be allowed to sell milk after May 1st.

A hearing took place at DATCP's headquarters on 4/25 for two farmers who refused to sign.

After the meeting, DATCP sent a letter to dairy plants (the group who have been selected to enforce the new rule/law/policy/regulation all of these words are being used). The letter said that DATCP will NOT be revoking milk licenses on May 1st of those who have not yet registered. The letter told milk plants to pick up as usual. DATCP decided not to tie premises registration to a dairy license.

Unfortunately, over 95% of the dairy farmers in Wisconsin have signed the Premises ID form.

DATCP has an aggressive campaign to sign up ALL farms in the state, as well as non-producers such as Vets and other service providers.

I was present at the DATCP meeting and recorded it on an MP3 recorder. I moved the file to a CD-ROM. Martha Reilly and I are making copies for our Weston Price chapter and we're happy to provide  a copy to anyone who would like one.

I did quite a bit of research before the meeting and in the short time allowed for public questions (after it was announced that the meeting was officially over), I asked several questions that the officials would not answer.

The most alarming thing I discovered BEFORE the meeting was background information about WLIC board member Mike Bishop (Note: SINCE the meeting, I have discovered MORE alarming information that is reflected in my list of questions to DATCP listed below).

Note: The Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium (WLIC) is a non-profit organization that is currently contracted to implement the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) for Wisconsin's Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection (DATCP).

Met libertarian and conservative farmers and learned an incredible amount about farming and nature and science, as well as about government violations against them and against us all. The other side of the fence is nothing like what we've been (more...)
