Nature fights back as pesticide resistant bugs devour GM Monsanto corn with a vengeance

Be careful what EATS YOU!

Why anyone would eat non organic corn is beyond me. One day the lawsuits will fly just like in big tobacco.
"According to new research from Canadian scientists, the pesticides used on genetically modified (GM) crops and, in some cases, the genes used to create GM crops are able to survive in our digestive tracts, move into our bloodstreams, and, in the case of pregnant women, show up into their developing infants. The study, in press in the journal Reproductive Toxicology, contradicts that biotech companies are either misleading or inaccurate when they repeatedly reassure the government and public health organizations that genes and bacteria inserted into GM crops cannot survive the digestive tract. “Monsanto and the Environmental Protection Agency swore up and down that it was only insects that would be hurt” by GM crops, says Jeffrey Smith, founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology, a nonprofit devoted to educating the public about the risks of genetically modified crops. “They were wrong.”

Corn which has been genetically engineered by Monsanto to kill western corn rootworm is reportedly being devoured by those pests with a vengeance. Thanks to the heavy reliance on the genetically modified crops, the tiny rootworm pest has overtaken fields, outsmarting the genetic engineering that was supposed to keep it away. According to recent reports, pesticide-resistant rootworms are showing up weeks earlier and more voraciously than ever.

Mike Gray, a professor of entomology with the University of Illinois reported: “We're still early in the growing season, and the adults are about a month ahead of schedule,” explained Gray. “I was surprised to see them – and there were a lot.”

Reports of increasing rootworm damage began coming in last after Iowa State University researcher, Aaron Gassmann, published a study saying that the rootworms were becoming resistant to the product, creating so-called “superbugs” in Iowa fields.

In a research paper published in the July/August/September 2012 issue of the journal Gm Crops & Food, scientists reported that samples taken in 2010 indicated that rootworm populations had an eleven-fold survival rate on Cry3Bb1 maize than did control populations. The paper noted that resistant corn rootworm populations were first identified in 2009 and that survival on Cry3Bb1 maize at that time that was three times higher than populations not associated with such injury.

S. America pivots from West towards BRICS


Are only complete Morons let to rule who can not see the whole Empire deserting with their feet?


One World of Nations
17 July 2014


Note that 11 South American country Presidents are in attendance and couple that with Russia reactivating their Lourdes spy location in Cuba and one sees a picture of a continent that has left the western sphere of influence. We will see naval ports visited by Chinese and Russian ships.

It is only a function of time before all 11 countries will have swap lines with China in Yuan to settle trade.

Once these countries can activate borrowing from the BRICs bank and substitute the need for the World Bank and the IMF, it will be piss off time for the west. They have long suffered abuses at the hand of western financiers and plunders and paid the price. So to be able to find an alternative will be welcomed by them and embraced.
One might ponder what the west will do when they chose to accept Yuan as payment and not dollars for their goods.

For a country today not to think a global exporter is sheer folly, as today's customers may not be tomorrow's.

Gov. Perry Op-Ed: "What Obama Missed On The Border"


Dear John,

We wanted to make sure you saw Gov. Rick Perry's piece in today's Wall Street Journal. A week ago, Gov. Perry met with President Obama in Dallas to reinforce his concerns about the southern border. Althought President Obama declined, Gov. Perry invited him to the border to see just how harmful the Obama administration's border security efforts are on Texas and how porous the border is with Mexico.

In this op-ed, Gov. Perry lays out why this is a national issue and why it requires the federal government's full support.

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: “WHAT OBAMA MISSED ON THE BORDER”

If the president came to see the disastrous effects of Washington's policy in person, he might want to act.

By Rick Perry

In 2012, I alerted the federal government to the growing problem of unaccompanied minors making the treacherous journey across Mexico to reach the United States. At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands.

In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington's indifference to securing the border.

I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and are now facing an unknown future. It was staggering to realize that this humanitarian crisis is not the result of a natural disaster, but of our nation's own misguided laws and misplaced priorities. It's nothing less than a moral outrage.


When I met with President Obama last Wednesday to discuss this crisis, I reminded him that securing the border is not only one of the core responsibilities of the federal government, it's also an attainable goal.

I made clear that this is not just Texas' problem. The effects of a porous border are felt everywhere. In the case of the children, many will ultimately be released on the condition that they appear—after waiting many months or even years—for a hearing to determine whether they should be deported. Experience shows that many simply won't show up, vanishing into cities across the country.

The porous border also leads to increased crime, a stronger drug trade and the specter of international terror. There have been numerous instances of illegal border crossing by people from countries with ties to terrorism, including Somalia, Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Albania.

This has been a concern in my state for many years, which is why Texas has stepped in where the federal government hasn't. Since 2005, Texas has spent more than $500 million to fill the significant gaps in federal efforts to secure the border. We have deployed airplanes and helicopters, watercraft and Ranger Recon surveillance teams to quickly respond in remote areas of the border region where illegal activity is expected.

...

As I told the president, the first step is granting my long-standing request to send 1,000 National Guard troops to the border to supplement security efforts until a sufficient number of Border Patrol officers are hired, trained and deployed.

The president needs to direct the Federal Aviation Administration to allow drones to monitor suspected illegal activity along the border and track those responsible. He also needs to work with Congress to revisit and modify existing laws, including a 2008 law that unintentionally makes it harder to deport individuals from countries other than Mexico and Canada. Such laws serve as magnets for illegal immigrants, who are hearing that if they or their children make it to the U.S. they can stay indefinitely, without consequence.

There also has to be an increased federal emphasis on diplomatic efforts. We need to put pressure on the countries where these children are coming from, such as Honduras and El Salvador, as well as on the Mexican government, which is reportedly implementing new laws to track but not stop the flow of children through its country. Mexico would be better served securing its own southern borders than making it easier for children to travel alone through dangerous territory.

Everyone feels sympathy for the children housed in detention centers. But there is nothing compassionate about policies that encourage more young children to leave their families and travel to a foreign land. They are in extreme danger on every step of the journey, clinging to the tops and sides of trains and at the mercy of human smugglers. Letting them stay means that far more will follow.

...

The people contemplating sending their children on a perilous journey to America must know that our border is secure and that endangering their lives will not be rewarded.

Mr. Perry, a Republican, is the governor of Texas.

U.S. Seeks Legislation to Curb Offshore Tax Deals

Of course dealing with the real problem would never cross anyone's mind. Not that this will apply to the Cabal.

The Obama administration called for immediate congressional action to stop U.S. companies from using cross-border mergers to escape the country’s tax system, the latest trend in corporate deal-making.

In a letter calling for a “new sense of economic patriotism,” Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew said Congress should pass tax changes retroactive to May.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today that he wants to advance legislation proposed by Senator Carl Levin of Michigan and that it’s taken too long already. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said President Barack Obama will discuss the issue more in the weeks ahead.

“We should prevent companies from effectively renouncing their citizenship to get out of paying taxes,” Lew wrote in the letter to top congressional tax writers, which was dated yesterday. “We should not be providing support for corporations that seek to shift their profits overseas to avoid paying their fair share of taxes.”

Raising Stakes on Russia, U.S. Adds Sanctions

At the White House, the president discussed his administration’s escalated sanctions against Russia

The New York Times
By Peter Baker
and James Kanter
16 July 2014

WASHINGTON — President Obama imposed a new round of sanctions against Russia on Wednesday, targeting some of the crown jewels of the country’s financial, energy and defense industries in what officials described as the most punishing measures taken to date by the United States in retaliation for Moscow’s intervention in Ukraine.

The new actions will, among other things, restrict access to American capital markets for Russian giants like the Rosneft oil company and Gazprombank that operate worldwide. While the latest moves did not cut off entire sectors of the Russian economy, they went significantly further than the financial and travel limits imposed previously on several dozen individuals and their businesses.

The announcement reflected a decision by Mr. Obama to take more stringent steps than those taken by the United States’ European allies, which have far deeper economic ties to Russia. Meeting in Brussels, leaders of the European Union refused to match the American measures and instead adopted a more tempered plan that blocks new development loans to Russia and threatens to target more Russian individuals.

Did the Other Shoe Just Drop? Big Banks Hit with Monster $250 Billion Lawsuit in Housing Crisis

This makes too big to fail too small to pay. It's getting deeper.


Web of Debt

For years, homeowners have been battling Wall Street in an attempt to recover some portion of their massive losses from the housing Ponzi scheme. But progress has been slow, as they have been outgunned and out-spent by the banking titans.

In June, however, the banks may have met their match, as some equally powerful titans strode onto the stage. Investors led by BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, and PIMCO, the world’s largest bond-fund manager, have sued some of the world’s largest banks for breach of fiduciary duty as trustees of their investment funds. The investors are seeking damages for losses surpassing $250 billion. That is the equivalent of one million homeowners with $250,000 in damages suing at one time.

The defendants are the so-called trust banks that oversee payments and enforce terms on more than $2 trillion in residential mortgage securities. They include units of Deutsche Bank AG, U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, HSBC Holdings PLC, and Bank of New York Mellon Corp. Six nearly identical complaints charge the trust banks with breach of their duty to force lenders and sponsors of the mortgage-backed securities to repurchase defective loans.

Here's How Hillary Clinton Restricts The Press

Truth dies with Clinton's lies!

How else does she control opinion?



Business Insider

Hillary Clinton's contract for a 2013 speech at the University of Buffalo — for which she was paid $275,000 — came with a number of limits on press access.

A copy of the contract was released by the school Wednesday. Among other restrictions, the contract required no press presence at the event reception and no opportunities for members of the media to hear from Clinton apart from her speech and a moderated question-and-answer segment immediately afterward.

"The reception prior to the speech will be closed to the news-media," the contract said. "The Sponsor will work with Agency to coordinate the organization and setup for the news-media during the speech and moderated Q&A portion of the event. There will be no other media opportunities or availabilities (i.e., press conferences, statements, etc.)."

Furthermore, the university was required to seek approval from Clinton's speaking agency before inviting any members of the media as guests.

Stolen uranium compounds not only dirty bomb ingredients within ISIS' grasp, say experts

Wonderful, and why do think these extremists will not use this against Israel or the west?


Fox News
By Perry Chiaramonte
15 July 2014

Plenty of materials for a potential dirty bomb are likely scattered throughout the area of Iraq controlled by ISIS, and pulling off an attack that spreads even a minor amount of radiation could be a huge PR coup for the terror group, experts told FoxNews.com.

Last week, the Iraqi government in Baghdad warned the UN that ISIS operatives had stolen 88 pounds of uranium compounds from Mosul University. Even though many experts said the research materials were not enough to cause widespread harm, spreading fear is even more important to terrorists than a big body count, one terrorism expert said. And with ISIS in control of a huge swath of northern Iraq and parts of Syria that includes research labs, hospitals and industrial sites, ingredients for radiation-spreading bombs are within its grasp.

"Obtaining radiological material from places like universities or hospitals is relatively easy if you have the firepower, a chaotic situation and jihadists willing to sacrifice their health handling it,” said Ryan Mauro, national security analyst for The Clarion Project, a think tank that studies Islamic extremism. “We aren't talking about producing a nuclear bomb; just combining an explosive with radioactive material."

All aboard: China's railway dream

How the new silk roads will change trade patterns for a long time to come enriching China and Asia without crippling Cabal Military budgets. North America is starting to look very tired in transportation times and is held back by the truck crowd. The inefficiencies are paid for by the consumer. America is faltering badly now.


China has already spent billions to improve its railway networks and intends to increase its efforts

At Asia's biggest rail cargo base in Chengdu in south-west China, the cranes are hard at work, swinging containers from trucks onto a freight train. The containers are filled with computers, clothes, even cars.

Until last year, all of it would have first gone more than 1,000 miles east to Shanghai and then to Europe by sea.

But now the journey's been cut from six weeks to two. The trains are bound straight for Europe via Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus. They will be unloaded in Poland and distributed to their final destinations.

Chinese media called their prime minister the country's top railway salesman, and when he went to London last month and trumpeted the prowess of China's railway builders, enthusiasts back home were quick to observe that China was turning the tables on one of the world's first great railway nations.

They pointed out that the nation which had brought the first rail to China 150 years ago is now agonising over its first 120-mile stretch of high-speed track between London and Birmingham, while China has already spent £300bn ($514bn) building 8,000-miles of track and intends to double that before the end of the decade.
