Food safety bill invokes Codex harmonization and grants FDA authority to police food safety of foreign nations

Of all the talk about S.510, virtually no one has actually read the language in the bill — especially not those lawmakers who voted for it. The more you read from this bill, the more surreal it all becomes. For example, did you know there’sa global FDA power grab agendahidden in the Food Safety Modernization Act? Keep reading and I’ll quote text straight out of the bill itself.

Section 305 is entitled “BUILDING CAPACITY OF FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS WITH RESPECT TO FOOD SAFETY” and it gives the FDAauthorityto set up offices in foreign countries and thendictate thefood safetyplans of foreign governments. It says, specifically, on page 217 of the bill (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-…):

SEC. 308. FOREIGN OFFICES OF THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION.
(a) IN GENERAL. – The Secretary shall establish offices of theFood and Drug Administrationin foreign countries selected by the Secretary.

It then goes on to say:

(a) The Secretary shall, not later than 2 years of the date of enactment of this Act, develop a comprehensive plan to expand the technical, scientific, and regulatory foodsafetycapacity of foreign governments, and their respectivefoodindustries, from whichfoodsare exported to theUnited States.

Huh? TheFDAis now going to run the food safety programs of foreign governments? Look out, world: I’m fromthe FDAand I’m here to help!

Homeland Securityand U.S. Treasury also involved

So who is involved in creating this? Believe it or not, the global “food safety” plan is to be developed under consultation to theDepartment of Homeland Securityas well as the U.S. Treasury. As the bill states:

(b) Consultation – In developing the plan under subsection (a), the Secretary shall consult with the Secretary of Agriculture, Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the United States Trade Representative, and the Secretary of Commerce, representatives of the foodindustry, appropriate foreigngovernmentofficials, nongovernmental organizations that represent the interests of consumers, and other stakeholders.

You might reasonably wonder “What does the Department of Homeland Security have to do with the FDA’s food safety plan?” Or “Why is the U.S. Treasury involved in thefood supply?” Learn more about the Federal Reserve and you’ll have the answers to these questions. I don’t have space for all the details here, but read Ed Griffin’s book and visithttp://www.realityzone.comif you really want to know what’s behind a lot of this.

Codex harmonization, data sharing and more

So what does this global food safety plan actually entail? It’s all spelled out right in the language of the law. You can view this yourself on page 195 of the bill text in the PDF file athttp://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-…

(c) Plan – The plan developed under subsection (a) shall include, as appropriate, the following:

• “Provisions for secure electronic data sharing.”

This is so that the FDA can electronically track and monitor thefood productionactivities of foreign nations. That way, if somebody in Spain tries to sellraw almondsto the USA, the FDA can make sure thosealmondsget irradiated or fumigated with chemicals first. Because raw almonds are so dangerous they have actually been outlawed in America (http://www.naturalnews.com/021776.html).

• “Training of foreign governments andfood producerson United States requirements for safe food.”

This is designed to shove the FDA’s “dead food” agenda down the throats of other nations. The FDA, you see, believes thatthe only safe food is dead food— that’s why, along with theUSDA, they have declared war onraw milk, raw almonds and many raw vegetables (http://www.naturalnews.com/023015_f…).

Now, with this law, the FDA will begin pushing its dead foods agenda globally, essentiallyexporting the FDA’s agenda of death anddiseaseby making sure other nations destroy the nutritive qualities of their food supply in the same way the U.S. is doing. It’s all great for the globalBig Pharmaprofiteers, of course. The more disease they can spread around the world, the moremoneythey’ll make from selling medications.

Codex Alimentarius is also promoted in the bill

The “Plan” described in this bill continues with the following:

• “Recommendations on whether and how to harmonize requirements under the Codex Alimentarius.”

This is included so that the FDA will “harmonize” the U.S. food anddietary supplementindustries with global Codex requirements which outlaw virtually all healthy doses of vitamins and minerals. Under full Codex “harmonization,”Americawill be left with a dead food supply and thehealthfood stores will be virtually stripped bare ofdietary supplements. Selling vitamin D at a reasonable dose such as 4,000 IU per capsule will be criminalized and products will be seized and destroyed by FDA agents who recruit local law enforcement to bring in the firepower.

All this will, of course, ensure a diseased, nutritionally-deficient U.S.population. This actually seems to be the goal the FDA has been trying to achieve all along because the more diseased the population, the more money gets collected by Big Pharma for “treating” sick people withmedicationand chemotherapy.

It’s all right in the bill!

The text mentioned in this article is taken straight from the bill itself. You can search for it athttp://thomas.loc.govby searching for “S.510” as the bill number.

It makes me wonder why some food book authors so wholeheartedly supported this bill. Why were so many progressives on the left so enamored with this law? Didn’t they realize this was a huge FDApowerexpansion that would destroy many small farms and putfarmersout of business while subjecting theUSAto possible Codex harmonization?

Did they even know the FDA is now on a global food-killing agenda that will seek to pasteurize, fumigate, cook or kill virtually every piece of food that enters the United States?

Did they not know that the bill does absolutely nothing to limit the use ofchemicalpesticideson imported food? According to the FDA’s stance on all this,foods laced with DDT and other pesticides are perfectly “safe” for human consumption, but foods teeming with probiotics — such as rawmilk— are deadly and dangerous! (Seriously…)

How is it that popular food book authors and food documentary producers could possibly support this bill? Do they also think small dairy farmers who sell raw milk should be criminalized? Do they agree with the Codex harmonization agenda? Do they think the FDA should run the world’s food safety systems and that the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Treasury should be shaping our global food safety agenda?

You really just have to shake your head and wonder about the true intentions of some people. I just have to ask: Were the supporters of this bill really so naive that they could somehow believe the FDA would actually seek to protect small, localorganic farms? What about raw milk producers? What about the single-family farms that must nowapply to the FDA for exemption statusby authoring research reports, collecting tax returns and producing a pile of documentation the FDA will soon require?

Let me just say it bluntly:TheFood Safety Modernization Actis the destroyer of localorganicfarming. It will gut small farms and local farms, greatly increasing the price of local organic food while decreasing America’s food security. Farmers’ Markets will be targeted by FDA agents who raid theoperationsof local farmers and imprison them for not having the right paperwork. Families will be destroyed, and those who have been successful at local food production willscale back their operationsin a desperate effort to duck under the $500,000 / year rule (which can easily be surpassed by producing just ten acres of organic carrots, by the way).

The real agenda behind the bill

From another point of view, however, this bill is doingexactly what it was supposed to do: Destroy small farms, wipe outfamilyfarm operations, imprison raw milk producers andcentralize food productionin the hands of the big corporate food producers whose operations are steeped in pesticides and soil degradation.

This bill should have been called the “Big Agriculture Monopoly Act” because that’s what it does. It will ensure that America’s food supply will be controlled by Monsanto, DuPont and other agricultural giants who have been at odds with small organic farms for years.

The global food control agenda is aconspiracy, not a theory

It’s all part ofthe global food control agendathat we now know to be 100% true based on the leakedWikileakscables which revealed that the U.S. government conspired to pushGMOsinto Europe and “create a retaliatory target list” for any nation that resisted GMOs (such as France). Read that full report right here on NaturalNews:http://www.naturalnews.com/030828_G…

Thanks to Wikileaks, we now know that theglobalGMOconspiracyis quite real. It’s something that U.S. diplomats and government officials scheme on in order to appease their corporate masters in theagricultureindustry. Now, with the Food Safety Modernization Act, this global conspiracy extends beyond GMOs and encompassesthe global food supply, too.

It has become clear that U.S.lawmakersand bureaucrats will not stop until they have killed the entire global food supply, renderingliving foods, raw foods and dietary supplements illegal or impossibly difficult to grow. You can thank your U.S. Congresspeople and Senators for all this, of course. In the end, every Senator in office today caved in and voted to pass this bill. You can also thank those who publicly promoted this bill even while having no real idea of the horrors they were supporting.

Such begins a new era ofglobal food destructionheaded by what can only be called the most dangerous government agency in North America: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration. If they do to your food what they’ve done to prescription drugs, annual food deaths willincreaseto over 100,000 a year.

Watch for the FDA to now set upenforcement officesin nations all around the world and start outlawing living foods on a global scale (if they can get away with it).

Also, watch for a new push forCodex harmonizationwhich is a truly evil agenda to criminalize healing foods and nutritional supplements that prevent and evenreversechronic disease.
