Video: What is the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’
Visit our home page for more anti-establishment news
DemRep party is corrupt beyond reform. I stopped voting DemRep long ago, rest of America needs to open their eyes. Throw these crooks out of office.
Sorry to repeat myself but: Its time to finally confront the fact that Obama works for Monsanto, just like most of Congress. Its time to let go of the self-defeating fantasy that Obama or anyone but ourselves, will protect us from eating poison, or feeding it to our kids. It’s time to go out and label the food ourselves. GO OUT and LABEL THE FOOD OURSELVES. NOW. Print labels that say WARNING CONTAINS GMO MATERIAL !!! Go into the stores that sell this poison, and stick the labels on the food. Now.
No, just learn how to cook from scratch. There are still ways to get around GMO stuff.

You have been lied to. Obama has signed nothing. It just was introduced and has now been referred to the Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation. I t hasnt even been voted on in the House yet, let alone made it to the Senate and signed into law. Here you go. Ill stand corrected if I can be shown the votes to pass it in the House and the Senate.
‘Monsanto Protection Act’ slips silently through US Congress
You two are both talking different acts. Guy above “accurate information only” is referring to 993 and “anti-media” is referring to 933.
993 refers to a specific patch of land in Utah
933 is the budget rider, valid for six months only…but these things have a habit of getting extensions.
Statement by the Press Secretary on H.R. 933
On Tuesday, March 26, 2013, the President signed into law:
H.R. 933, the “Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013,” in which Divisions A through E provide fiscal year (FY) 2013 full-year appropriations through September 30, 2013, for the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Homeland Security, Justice, and Veterans Affairs, as well as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, and other related agencies; Division F provides for further continuing FY 2013 funding through September 30, 2013 for the remaining projects and activities of the Federal Government funded through discretionary appropriations not covered in Divisions A through E; and Division G includes across-the-board reductions for FY 2013 discretionary appropriations contained in Divisions A through F to assure compliance with the discretionary spending limits.
Thank you! It’s nice to see someone else do a little research before just blindly believing whatever bias distorted “facts” they hear.
One way or another people will make a conspiracy theory. Hey why dont you try feed a billion people on crops that go bad. Well most people cannot and simply dont have the land nor finances to grow theyre own so natrually a company has to produce food that doesnt go bad to feed the masses. If you dont like it then go buy a gun and shoot yourself. I mean the government isnt buying ammo because of the north korea threat right? Theyre totally planning on killing americans…… well if that is the plan lets hope they start with the ones that dont work and ones that suck the economy dry. Youre an idiot buddy, keep selling ad space on youre website by promoting sensless fear campaigns. Moron!
I don’t have ads. The bullet purchases in question were bought by DHS and the IRS and other DOMESTIC agencies. And the White House releases a statement on this content and the Monsanto Protection Act http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2013/03/26/statement-press-secretary-hr-933
Food that doesn’t go bad is not food. Food is supposed to go bad otherwise it’s not following the basic life cycle and is, therefore, unnatural like plastic for example. And yes, there is enough land for everyone, it is simply owned and monopolized by a small parcel of the population. Companies don’t want to feed the masses they want to sell products to the masses… there is a big difference there.
tony sucks real bad
I am amazed that you are surprised by the actions of Obama. He is a submersive liar. Has been since day one of his taking office. His agenda is purely a selfish one. There is not an ounce of intelligent care and concern for this nation or its well being in him.
Feeding billions of people on crops that go bad would not be a problem. Just like every other animal, human procreation is dependent upon food availability. Less food, less humans, more food (even horribly altered food) means more humans. How is Monsanto protected by this budget bill?
Go to Snopes.
At least you might learn this is a temporary funding bill based on previously approved Congressional budgets.
Snopes doesn’t always have their facts straight. and since when have any of these types of measures benn really “temporary”? income tax used to be a “volunteer” basis.
Mr. President, do you really hate Americans and our beautiful America so very much ?This is too sad…..
This Monsanto provision should not be law. However, let’s be honest, the Monsanto Protection provision was tacked to the Agricultural Appropriations bill H.R. 933 and passed through both bodies of the legislative branch. It was not authored or initiated by Obama or his administration and is legislation he opposes. The Monsanto addition is limited and will end in six months but that’s not to say it is good legislation or policy. But, for those who wish to go on a Obama bashing attack, the aim of your target is way, way off and you need to focus your attention the the real enemies of good food and health policy and not attack your allies.
The problem with the biotech rider to the Agriculture Appropriation Bill H.R. 993 is Obama does not have line item veto power; it’s all or nothing. This rider is legislatively called a poison pill. As part of the short term spending bill, President Obama had to sign the resolution in order to prevent the federal government from shutting down yesterday, March 27, when the current funding was set to expire. He doesn’t get to cherry pick what parts he signs into law. He either lets the goverment shut down or he signs the poison pill. Pick your enemies properly and be smart about how legislative process works so that the tactics the Republicans use to undermine progressive politics doesn’t succeed in undermining progressive leaders.
You’ve been duped into attacking progressive leaders by tactics used to attempt another government shutdown. Please do your homework and focus your aim on the targets that are truly the enemies of public health and proper agricultural policies.
Actually we’ve been trying to stop the rider since we found out about it weeks ago before it was passed by Congress. Over 250,000 people petitioned Obama to veto it, but he didn’t, just like on the NDAA. Will you make this same excuse for the NDAA?
really? I cannot believe that people still defend this guy. this Monsanto bit is simply icing on the cake. how about that he appointed a Monsanto lobbyist to oversee the FDA? or:
indefinitely lock-up Americans, has a kill-list, drone bombs civilians in Pakistan, hasn’t closed Gitmo, hasn’t done jack about the economy, only had a gay-marriage epiphany during an election year, spent at least one week a month in the SF Bay Area of 2011 begging for money, sold guns to Mexican drug cartels, lied about Bengazhi, granted a waiver allowing four countries to continue receiving US military aid even though they use child soldiers, argued that the widespread use of Predator drones is a justifiable form of self-defense, ordered a cruise missile and cluster bomb attack in Yemen that killed women and children, suppressed the civilian casualties, and then imprisoned a journalist who revealed the truth, proclaimed there would be “transparency” in his administration but locked up Bradley Manning, allowed the cops to run apeshit during the Occupy protests, says Americans can be assassinated without judicial review, voted for warrant-less wiretapping even when he was a senator, allowed the TSA to continue to violate peoples’ civil rights and expand their jurisdiction, supports DNA testing of people in “drug crimes”, blocked FOIA requests regarding ties with Monsanto, refused FOIA request to reveal who was on the Intelligence Oversight Board, appointed H&R Block CEO Mark Ernst to the IRS, where he wrote tax regulation to require licensed tax preparers. Congress never gave the IRS authority to do that, but this regulation benefits H&R Block, who had lobbied for it. required American citizens, for the first time, to purchase a product from a private business through the “individual mandate.” I don’t care if Republicans came up with the idea first; I don’t care if you need it to make the health care bill work; and it’s not like state car insurance, either. It is (I believe) a severe and unconstitutional overreach that sets a dangerous precedent of almost unlimited government, and conservatives and liberals alike should agree that this insurance company hybrid system is a far worse health care solution than either free-market or government-run “single payer” , argued the individual mandate penalty was not a tax increase to make the bill more attractive and then argued that the penalty was a tax increase to justify its constitutionality under the commerce clause , broke promise to repeal Bush tax cuts for high earners, signing bill to extend them, broke promise that families making less than $250,000 a year would not see “any form of tax increase”, appointed former lobbyist Islam Siddiqui as America’s Chief Agriculture Negotiator, appointed defense lobbyist William Lynn to deputy defense secretary, appointed Goldman Sachs lobbyist Mark Patterson as chief of staff to treasury secretary Geithner , insisted that Americans should not be required to buy health insurance during campaign before championing health care bill that does just that,…
I’m just as shocked as you are that ANYONE can continue to think that Obama is going to anything to help the American people. If it doesn’t suit his personal agenda, it’s not going to happen. He doesn’t care who his actions harm. Look what he’s done to our soldiers and their families.
I said it before and I’ll continue to say it, Anyone who voted for a Muslim raised leader in charge of our well being and future has got to be crazy, after 9-11! I don’t claim to be the smartest about politics and such but it is just COMMON SENSE! I believe Obama will destroy us from the inside out. Who knows he could be weakening us in all aspects of life just to take us down,, face it…trying to take our guns ( I hate guns) but think of us without anything to protect us should anything arise we would need to defend ourselves, they say only the mass weapons but what makes us believe they will stop there. Cutting back Military, our best defense! The list goes on and on , I pray I am wrong but I must say People should really really think about the big picture here! No I am not crazy, I’m Scared
I know Obama is not solely responsible for everything but he is the President of our country with the most power and he has pushed for several of these issues himself.
Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the internet the easiest thing to have in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as people consider worries that they plainly do not understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
