WHO cancer agency publishes Q&A on carcinogenic glyphosate - Gag me with a GMO cocktail

Glyphosate is the poison used with over 80% of GMO crops, and manufactured by many of the most aggressive GMO corporations. By now glyphosate has infested vast parts of the industrial agriculture wasteland, and is turning up in all sorts of places where it ought not to be, such as in beer and tampons.

Ignore the relentless, insidious corporate propaganda flung hither and yon on the intertubes, and instead read the actual unbiased science in this Q & A from WHO (World Health Organization).

Stand strong for your basic human right to know what strange unnatural substances are in the food the GMO-Chemical-Pharmaceutical corporations want to continue to secretly (without labels) serve up to you and your children.

The World Health Organization’s cancer agency IARC has published a Q&A on the probable carcinogen and World’s most used herbicide – glyphosate.

The Q&A makes it clear that glyphosate alone is both a probable human carcinogen and is genotoxic.

"If you are anti-GMOs you are anti-science."

That mind-twisting meme is a steady, unrelenting drumbeat...

It's also a deliberate and ongoing corporate propaganda strategy.. Be wary of of the "tent pole" strategy.

"Recent disclosed documents have also exposed numerous scientific experts enlisted in Monsanto’s messaging (and other corporate messaging as well). But what is most pernicious is that a whole new rhetorical talking point has come to the forefront, which threatens anyone – particularly scientists – who speak out against their “tent pole” technology: If you are anti-GMOs you are anti-science...

The new talking point represents a brilliant strategy to promote genetic engineering. Most people do not want to be characterized as anti-science, not journalists, not public officials, not celebrities, and least of all, not trained and educated scientists. Furthermore, the propaganda plays to pro-science liberals who have accused conservatives of being anti-science due to their denial of climate change."

Republican Senate Ag committee approves Dark ACT to pimp GMO infestation

The month of March is roaring in not like a lion, but like a Republican corporate industrial chemical pharmaceutical GMO-glyposate SHIT STORM, Inc. to guarantee that you will never ever ever ever ever ever know what kind of genetic-industrial crap corporations are dumping into the food you feed your family.

Today the Senate Agriculture Committee narrowly passed a version of the House-adopted Deny Americans the Right to Know, or DARK Act.

The bill will block states from enacting GMO labeling laws and make it harder for companies to voluntarily label foods made with genetically engineered ingredients.

Zom-bees: The Buzzing Dead

NYT: "Call it “The Buzzing Dead.” Infestations of what scientists have dubbed “zombie bees” have spread across both the West and East coasts in recent years..."

"They are succumbing to their overlord, larvae of the fly Apocephalus borealis..."

This story from the NY Times should be setting off Massive Alarm Gongs in the skull of anyone who cares about the natural world that makes human life possible. Researchers may not yet have nailed down the factors causing the parasitic flies to go apeshit in relation to the bees, but an overall context is obvious to anyone who is paying attention (and who is not somehow beholden to payola from the chemical-pharmaceutical-genetic Borg, Inc.). To wit: as industrial chemical GMO profit-driven "products" continue to infest and overpower the natural world, things just keep getting weirder and weirder.

"Rubio’s hectoring melody overlapped Trump’s exasperated harmony"- Repub whinefest

Frank Bruni at the Times is one of my favorite columnists. He's got lots of insight on the Republican slime & whine fest that fouled the airwaves last night.

Bruni: "...But Rubio turned in Trump’s direction with particular force. With ferociousness, in fact. He recited a meticulously memorized litany of Trump’s transgressions..."

Somewhere deep in his twisted soul, even Clarence Thomas must...

...realize that his degenerate Republican colleagues are crapping all over the US Constitution by refusing to consider the President's Supreme Court nominee for purely racist-political reasons: Because Obama is Black. Even Clarence T. - as twisted a soul as has ever fouled the American landscape - must realize that he himself is Black. Hello? Clues are everywhere.

How can Clarence T. live with himself and the shame of knowing that - once again - he is selling out himself, any shred of dignity or integrity that may remain for him, and his ancestors: all for a measly mess of putrid Republican pottage.

One wonders how climate change denial will work for Repubs in the general election

Even though reality denial is a fundamental Republican strategy,
actual reality keeps slapping America in the face. WAKE UP!

From today's NY Times:

Seas Are Rising at Fastest Rate in Last 28 Centuries

"The worsening of tidal flooding in American coastal communities is largely a consequence of greenhouse gases from human activity, and the problem will grow far worse in coming decades, scientists reported Monday.

Those emissions, primarily from the burning of fossil fuels, are causing the ocean to rise at the fastest rate since at least the founding of ancient Rome, the scientists said..."

MoDo: The exclamation point has slouched off.

I'm not a yuuugge MoDo fan, but today's snark is splendid:

"The dynasty has perished, with a whimper. The exclamation point has slouched off.

The Bushes are leaving the field to someone they have utter contempt for: Donald Trump.

And the main emotion in Bushworld is relief. No one could bear one more day of watching Jeb get the flesh flayed off him by Trump..."
