In a world infected with a plethora of immoral multinational corporations, it is hard to think of twocorporations who have more nefarious histories than Bayer AG and Monsanto. Considering this, it is a harrowing prospect that the two corporations could potentially strike a deal in the near future.
As Bloomberg reported earlier this month, Bayer AG – the German pharmaceutical and chemical corporation – is reportedly consideringa bid for the agrochemical and biotechnology corporation, Monsanto. This comes two months after Monsanto showed some interest in acquiring Bayer Crop Sciences, a branch of Bayer AG.
Founded in 1863, Bayer may be familiar to many readers as the first company to widely sell and trademark Aspirin in the late nineteenth century. But there is a far more sinister history to this company that is often omitted.
A Facebook post featuring the many ways in which Oklahoma has fought back against President Barack Obama’s tyrannical rulings went viral, and for good reason.
The post perfectly captured the way in which Oklahoma legislators used their constitutionally guaranteed state power to crush the president’s rulings on religion, illegal immigration and more.
For instance, officials in Oklahoma passed an amendment to place the Ten Commandments at the front entrance to the state capitol, despite loud objections from both the Obama administration and the ACLU.
Oklahoma legislators also took a courageous stand against Obama’s anti-gun policies by ruling that citizens in the “have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles.”
AWESOME: Hundreds of Thousands Are “Sharing” What Oklahoma Just Did to Barack Obama – Supreme Patriot
urthermore, officials passed a law to incarcerate illegal immigrants and deport them to their home countries. This bold decision flew in the face of Obama’s unconstitutional executive action on amnesty.
Legislators in Oklahoma also made it so that DNA samples from illegal immigrants were always stored in the Oklahoma database, which in turn made it easier to identify and thus deport criminals who illegally enter into our country.
Even more awesome was that Oklahoma passed a law mandating that all drivers’ license exams be printed in English and no other language. Some might call that law racist, but we call it common-sense.
The most brazen of all laws passed, however, was the the law that officially declared Oklahoma as a sovereign state — one not beholden to the directives of President Barack Obama’s lawless and corrupt federal government (H/T Constitution Party of Ohio).
This law placed Oklahoma among the likes of Texas, Montana and Utah, though a number of other states are likely to follow suit.
It’s terrific to see a state fight back so hard against Obama, and we certainly hope other states follow Oklahoma’s shining example.
In a recent interview with CBS, Jack Nicklaus discussed his relationship with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, which includes designing golf courses for some of Trump’s properties, and wasn’t hesitant about voicing his support for someone he calls a “good man” who is “awakening the country” and “turningAmerican elites upside down
Donald is terrific. I’ve done several things with Donald, some golf courses and he has absolutely treated me great. He’s been above board. … I don’t want to get political in this, I like what Donald’s done, he’s turning America upside down, he’s cathe country. … Is he as smooth and politically correct as he should be? Probably not. But he’ll learn. He’s not stupid. He didn’t get where he was being dumb. I like the guy, he’s a good man, and certainly if he’s the one on the ticket, I’ll be voting for him.
Hundreds of thousands of people have demonstrated in nearly 50 countries around the globe to protest against the American mega producer company of genetically engineered (GE) seeds Monsanto, saying the…
The New York State Attorney General announced early last year that testing showed that supplements sold at Walmart, Walgreens, Target and GNC do not actually contain the herbs they claim to contain on their label. Cheap fillers, such as powdered rice, asparagus, house plants and even some substances that could be fatal to those with allergies, were found to be inside the supplements.
A store brand of ginseng pills at Walgreens, said to enhance “physical endurance and vitality” was only found to contain powdered garlic and rice. On the other hand, Walmart’s ginkgo biloba, a Chinese plant that enhances memory, contained just radish, houseplants and wheat, even though the product was marketed as wheat and gluten-free.
Ethical considerations, or the lack of them
Big Business just does not care for the public at large, choosing instead to suck out as much money as they could from unwitting customers. Anyone who has been paying enough attention to alternative news channels would have come across dozens of stories of companies just caring for their one true bottom line — profit.
Few Americans know what they have lost. Few understand to what extent they have been victimized by something far beyond a police state, far beyond simple surveillance, far beyond the obvious loss or rights and privacy that some accepted so readily less than two decades ago in order to “be safe.”
At the center of it all is the Department of Homeland Security, a shadowy bureaucracy tasked with examining every aspect of the lives of every American and producing a “threat profile” using a “predictive algorithm.”
While Americans worry about their gun purchases being tracked and cataloged, they have no idea what has already been done and there’s over 700,000 government “agents,” from border control to “TSA” to local police including 41 “other” agencies of which only 16 have recognizable acronym titles anyone has ever heard of.
Americans know their email and phone calls are listened to but what they don’t know is how social scientists at a dozen universities, working for agencies like the DHS, Department of Defense, NSA and DARPA have learned to handle “big data.”
“Big Data” is the bulk of information that is “out there,” pulled from the internet, stolen from the airwaves, including Wi-Fi intercepts, VOIP or internet based mobile phone networks, satellite and cable television viewing patterns and social network patterns. To this frightening “big data” base is added commercial credit reports, credit card and banking transactions now simply for the taking under counter-terrorism “money laundering” laws and every purchase, every foot, every mile of travel while in possession or accompanied by a “navigation device” or “location service” enable phone.
Americans once felt safe because they thought the government would never be able to handle tens of billions of phone calls, a trillion Facebook posts and billions of doctor’s bills and prescription medication purchases.
They were wrong, thanks to the world of super computing and the endless billions spent on hiring the best and brightest of those Edward Snowden has tried so hard to warn us about.
What do they know?
“They,” and we will get to who “they” are, know everything. They can’t legally get your medical history but their access to the drugs you buy and the doctors you see, including the background and specialty of those providers, tells them everything about you, whether you are sick, whether you are receiving psychiatric care, whether you are pregnant and quite probably who the father is, even when you may well not know it yourself. If only I were kidding. This is how “big data” works.
They see where you drive, how often your car is maintained, when you get up, when you go to sleep and nearly everything you do in-between.
What does this really mean, why would they want this? We ask this ourselves, we only know they are not only getting this information but they are putting it out there, available to agencies of all kinds, not just the folks who search your bags at the airport or that customs agent who looks at you funny when you claim you have “nothing to declare.”
The problem is, they don’t just stop at collection, which you always knew they were doing. Where the greatest strides in “big data” are is in social networks. Their goal, based on specialized predictive software, is to not only know what you think but to figure out what you will do. They want to know, we believe, because they may well be planning, perhaps not too far in the distant future, to stop you from doing what you do or even more likely take action, perhaps violent action, because of how you think or feel. http://journal-neo.org/2016/05/17/policy-by-lies-america-s-descent-into-insanity/
And as the New York Times notes this week, Obama has been at war longer than any president in history.
A new report revealing another dirty side to America’s rapidly growing poultry industry claims workers are being denied bathroom breaks and are forced to soil themselves to keep up with production. Lifting the veil on the billion dollar industry while pointing to the human cost of cheap chicken, the new report has revealed thousands of poultry workers are being routinely denied their basic needs — forcing some to wear diapers.
Obama’s ‘Killer’ Policies May Be Carried On by His Political Twin
Those American citizens that have put their trust in Barack Obama back when he was running for president must be infinitely disappointed while reading countless articles about Obama’s actual policies. These are not just failures, but incredibly deadly ones.
For instance, Forbes would note that from 1999 to 2014 the suicide rate in the United States went up by 24%, while among certain ethnic and demographic sub-groups the situation looks even more surreal. For instance, over the same time period, Native American women saw an increase in suicide of 89%. America’s current level of suicide is abnormally high and it’s a huge change from the not too distant past. And Russia has nothing to do with it, even though the rule of thumb in Washington today is to push blame on it for every single thing that goes wrong. President Barack has even stated that global crises such as Ebola, ISIS and Russian aggression have made the world spin so fast, nobody is able to control it.
Middle-aged people laid off and unable to find work are taking another way out They’re killing themselves.. Especially in economically depressed states. People in need of work are twice as likely to take their own lives as employed people, and people fired in their 40s and 50s find it hardest to get hired again. That makes boosting economic growth a life-or-death issue for many. But you would not know it listening to President Obama and Hillary Clinton. President Obama whitewashes reality, claiming the “American economy is pretty darn good right now. “False. The Obama economy is stalled.
In his article for The Washington Post American historian David Mereniss underlined that President Obama came to office with the goal of changing “the trajectory of America”. However, he failed to keep his promises. In the end, this will be Obama’s enduring domestic legacy.
Obama’s rise to power was facilitated by the promise he made to stop US wars, but has he fulfilled this promise? The Atlantic reminds us than when Barack Obama first entered the White House, with George W. Bush’s long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq ongoing, he stated that “he was not seeking new dragons to slay.” Instead he elected to scale back America’s commitments overseas and shift responsibilities to allies. But you could be forgiven for thinking the dragons have stubbornly remained, and even multiplied, on Obama’s watch.
During Obama’s time in office the US military would have allocated more money to war-related initiatives than it did under Bush: 866 billion dollars under Obama. Obama has unleashed 372 drone strikes against suspected terrorists in Pakistan, according to data gathered by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, 112 strikes in Yemen and 19 in Somalia. In fiscal year 2014, US special-operations forces were deployed to 133 countries, or roughly 70 percent of the entire world. The size of SOCOM has expanded by almost 25 percent since Obama took office.
In turn, Hillary Clinton is eager to urge the US to carry on its militaristic policies, so it’s no wonder that Obama has recently made a joke at his final correspondents’ dinner that he can see Hillary Clinton in his seat.
In Obama’s term, the US national debt increased by 8.3 billion dollars, according to a new report released by the US Treasury. The debt of the federal government increased by 8,314,529,850,339.07 dollars in President Barack Obama’s first seven years in office, according to official data published by the US Treasury. That 13,213,630,160,947.51 dollars increase in the debt during the Bush-Obama years equals 112,219.57 dollars for each of the 117,748,000 households that were in the country as of September. When Obama completed his seventh year in office, the federal debt was 18,941,406,899,252.15 dollars.
It’s therefore not surprising that The Huffington Post would note a bitter split within American society. It would note:
