    Senate Bill S510 Makes it illegal to Grow, Share, Trade or Sell Homegrown food.

    The World’s Prophecy
    August 13, 2010


    Since the story first broke, a lot has happened. One reason for this could be that food is being poisoned. Collecting rainwater is now illegal in many states. Your intake is being controlled. For more information, visit the following articles as well:

    Collecting rainwater now illegal in many states as Big Government claims ownership over our water

    Why do people in America refuse to take active interest in their future?

    S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.

    “If accepted would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” ~Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower

    It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.

    Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would not benefit from it, but Monsanto’s Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create — without judicial review — if it passes. S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food and farming.

    In the 1990s, Bill Clinton introduced HACCP (Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Points) purportedly to deal with contamination in the meat industry. Clinton’s HACCP delighted the offending corporate (World Trade Organization “WTO”) meat packers since it allowed them to inspect themselves, eliminated thousands of local food processors (with no history of contamination), and centralized meat into their control. Monsanto promoted HACCP.

    In 2008, Hillary Clinton, urged a powerful centralized food safety agency as part of her campaign for president. Her advisor was Mark Penn, CEO of Burson Marsteller*, a giant PR firm representing Monsanto. Clinton lost, but Clinton friends such as Rosa DeLauro, whose husband’s firm lists Monsanto as a progressive client and globalization as an area of expertise, introduced early versions of S 510.

    S 510 fails on moral, social, economic, political, constitutional, and human survival grounds.
    1. It puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or an ill-defined emergency. It resembles the Kissinger Plan.

    2. It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security. It would end the Uruguay Round Agreement Act of 1994, which put US sovereignty and US law under perfect protection. Instead, S 510 says:


    Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) shall be construed in a manner inconsistent with the agreement establishing the World Trade Organization or any other treaty or international agreement to which the United States is a party.

    3. It would allow the government, under Maritime Law, to define the introduction of any food into commerce (even direct sales between individuals) as smuggling into “the United States.” Since under that law, the US is a corporate entity and not a location, “entry of food into the US” covers food produced anywhere within the land mass of this country and “entering into” it by virtue of being produced.

    4. It imposes Codex Alimentarius on the US, a global system of control over food. It allows the United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the WTO to take control of every food on earth and remove access to natural food supplements. Its bizarre history and its expected impact in limiting access to adequate nutrition (while mandating GM food, GM animals, pesticides, hormones, irradiation of food, etc.) threatens all safe and organic food and health itself, since the world knows now it needs vitamins to survive, not just to treat illnesses.

    5. It would remove the right to clean, store and thus own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and other multinationals, threatening US security. See Seeds – How to criminalize them, for more details.

    6. It includes NAIS, an animal traceability program that threatens all small farmers and ranchers raising animals. The UN is participating through the WHO, FAO, WTO, and World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) in allowing mass slaughter of even heritage breeds of animals and without proof of disease. Biodiversity in farm animals is being wiped out to substitute genetically engineered animals on which corporations hold patents. Animal diseases can be falsely declared. S 510 includes the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), despite its corrupt involvement in the H1N1 scandal, which is now said to have been concocted by the corporations.

    7. It extends a failed and destructive HACCP to all food, thus threatening to do to all local food production and farming what HACCP did to meat production – put it in corporate hands and worsen food safety.

    8. It deconstructs what is left of the American economy. It takes agriculture and food, which are the cornerstone of all economies, out of the hands of the citizenry, and puts them under the total control of multinational corporations influencing the UN, WHO, FAO and WTO, with HHS, and CDC, acting as agents, with Homeland Security as the enforcer. The chance to rebuild the economy based on farming, ranching, gardens, food production, natural health, and all the jobs, tools and connected occupations would be eliminated.

    9. It would allow the government to mandate antibiotics, hormones, slaughterhouse waste, pesticides and GMOs. This would industrialize every farm in the US, eliminate local organic farming, greatly increase global warming from increased use of oil-based products and long-distance delivery of foods, and make food even more unsafe. The five items listed — the Five Pillars of Food Safety — are precisely the items in the food supply which are the primary source of its danger.

    10. It uses food crimes as the entry into police state power and control. The bill postpones defining all the regulations to be imposed; postpones defining crimes to be punished, postpones defining penalties to be applied. It removes fundamental constitutional protections from all citizens in the country, making them subject to a corporate tribunal with unlimited power and penalties, and without judicial review. It is (similar to C-6 in Canada) the end of Rule of Law in the US.

    Quite the theory you’ve found here….


    How big of a garden to you plan to grow, Catfish?

    “The bill would increase the FDA’s regulatory authority over the food production system in order to prevent contamination and food-borne illness outbreaks. It would give the FDA mandatory recall authority, require food producers to have qualifying plans in place for identifying and addressing safety risks, require importers to verify the safety of all imported foods, and more. Small farms and food facilities that do less than $500,000 in sales annually and sell most of their food locally would be exempt from most of the new regulations in the bill.”


    THE SKY IS FALLING…The Sky Is Falling…the sky is falling…


    Doesn’t seem like anything makes sense on this Bill. First they say you can’t even share food with your neighbor from a garden, then they say your exempt under $500,000. They say it will be illegal to own garden seeds, illegal to hold a farmers market. Do you think any one at farmers markets make $500,000.? No they don’t but it is proposed to be illegal to sell at a farmers market. A little bit wishy-washy don’t you think.


    One member of the U.S. Senate answers some of the question on this:

    Food Safety Modernization Act (S. 510): Frequently Asked Questions/Myths

    Will the Food Safety Bill outlaw home gardens and family farms?

    NO. The Food Safety Bill does not outlaw home gardens or family farms. In fact, the bill explicitly states that the produce standards “shall not apply to produce that is produced by an individual for personal consumption.” In addition, the bill also contains an exemption from regulations for small facilities and small farms, which was purposefully included to protect America?s family farms. This includes food sold through farmers? markets, bake sales, road side stands, public events, community supported agriculture, and organizational fundraisers.

    Will the Food Safety Bill criminalize seed savings?

    NO. The Food Safety Bill does not create any new rules in regard to the practice of saving seeds for use from year to year, and does not outlaw, criminalize, or require any specific agricultural or growing practice.

    Will the Food Safety Bill outlaw traditional organic growing methods?

    NO. Section 105 of S.510 explicitly states that new produce safety standards cannot “include any requirements that conflict with or duplicate the requirements of the national organic program.”

    Will the Food Safety Bill bring everyone who grows any food under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security?

    NO. The Food Safety Bill maintains the same food safety jurisdiction that exists under current law.

    Will the Food Safety Bill include new recordkeeping requirements for farms?

    NO. The Food Safety Bill does not require that farms keep any new food safety-related records.

    Will the Food Safety Bill charge farms and small businesses new registration fees?

    NO. The Food Safety Bill does not charge registration fees of any kind.

    Will the Food Safety Bill imprison people who sell raw milk?

    NO. The Food Safety Bill does not establish any restrictions on the sale of raw milk. The bill merely directs the FDA to review existing regulatory hazard analysis and preventive control programs in existence, such as the Grade „A? Pasteurized Milk Ordinance, before creating any new hazard analysis and preventive control rules.

    Will the Food Safety Bill require American food producers or farmers to be subject to WHO rules, UN food safety standards, or Codex Alimentarius?

    NO. The Food Safety Bill requires the FDA to come up with a plan to work with foreign countries that import food into the United States to ensure that Americans who purchase imported products can be assured of their safety, but does not require the adoption of any international standards. The bill also explicitly clarifies that dietary supplements remain subject to U.S. jurisdiction, not the Codex Alimenatrius.

    Will the Food Safety Bill require farms and more facilities to register with the FDA?

    NO. Under the Bioterrorism Act of 2002, certain food businesses were considered “facilities” and had to register with FDA. Farms and restaurants were exempted. This definition is not changed in S. 510. If an entity does not need to register now, it will not need to register under S. 510.

    Will the Food Safety Bill give the FDA new authority to inspect farms?

    NO. The Food Safety Bill increases inspections for registered food facilities but does not change FDA?s jurisdiction over farms.



    He says ‘no’ to all those questions but each one is addressed in the Bill contradicting everything he is saying. Could it be that these people WANT to downplay the Bill so it doesn’t get much reaction in order to pass it by dulling us. Who knows anymore with all the Government propaganda. Read the Bill I posted and think about all he is denying. Although in my opinion it would be a cold day in hell they could stop families from gardening. But where does all this sensationalism come from? Media and Monsanto? What about the wording on the Bill? Where did that come from?


    I think that if you want to find out how things are with food in other countries, then you should go on small food tours in Europe, for example. I personally decided to start with the food tour dublin. This was my first stop. Ireland seemed to me an extremely hospitable country. I advise you to visit there too.
