Bayer + Monsanto = A Match Made for Suffering the Humanity and Life - Bayer Crop Science
Hello. Today. I'm happy to announce that this Thursday, buy of a complete the acquisition, of Monsanto, this. Is good news for several reasons. First. Of all good news for our customers, farmers. Around the world. If. You had told someone two decades ago that by 2018. The company that commercialized, chemical, warfare and the company that commercialized, Agent, Orange we're, going to team up to control 1/4 of the world's food supply, chances. Are you would have been labeled a loony, unless. Your name was Robert P Shapiro. He. Was CEO of Monsanto from, 1995. To 2000, and in, 1999, he, told Businessweek, that the company's goal was to Wed three, of the largest industries, in the world, agriculture. Food and health that, now operate, as separate, businesses, but. There are a set of changes that will lead to their integration. With. This month's announcement, that buyer had completed its 63, billion dollar acquisition of, Monsanto, it is, hard to deny that Shapiro's, vision has been realized, too. Bad for all of us that. Vision is a nightmare, because. Contrary. To the field good corporate, propaganda being, churned out by the company's PR department. Propaganda. That would have you believe that this merger will be good for the environment for, farmers for ending, global hunger, and, incidentally. For lining the pockets of shareholders, these. Two corporate, giants, are in fact committed, to the consolidation, and transformation. Of the world's food supply in, the, hands of the genetic engineers. Monsanto. And Baier are a match, made in hell. This. Is the corporate report. It. Is hardly surprising that, the first thing buyer did after completing their takeover, of Monsanto, earlier this month was to announce that they were dropping the Monsanto name merging. The two companies agrochemical. Divisions under the buyer crop science named after. All as everyone, knows Monsanto. Is one of the most hated corporations. In the world. In. The film, food evolution, neil degrasse tyson, notes that Monsanto is one of the most hated companies, in the world why. Do people, have such strong feelings, toward. Monsanto. The. Worldwide march, against, Monsanto, has drawn, hundreds, out. Streets here in New York City, with people seizing, the opportunity, to, voice their, concerns. And, opposition. To. GMO, heat. I. Am. Here because I have a loathing hatred. For the company Monsanto which. A, lot of people don't know that, Monsanto is actually just a chemical company and they have no business. Basically. Dictating, our food supply. New. At noon the city of Seattle is suing biotech, giant, Monsanto to make, it pay for removing, cancer-causing, chemicals. In the water the. City says the company, knowingly, dumped, the compounds, in the city's drainage system, and the, Duwamish River for. Years, Seattle. Needs to build a storm water treatment plant to clean the system that, will cost about twenty, seven million dollars, six. Other major, municipalities, sued. Monsanto as, well.
Environmental. Lawyers have begun filing, lawsuits, against Monsanto, for cancer, deaths related to their, product, roundup, what, these lawsuits are showing, is an, effort both on the part of Monsanto, and the US government, to, minimize, the message about the dangers, of roundup, in relationship, to human cancer. Now. Your, bullseye. Is. Owned Monsanto. Why is Monsanto, so crucial, to this fight over seed. Monsanto. Is crucial, to. This fight because, they are the biggest seed, company, now Monsanto. Is privatizing. The seed they control, ninety. Five percent of the cotton in India ninety percent of the soil in this country they've taken over most of the seed companies, of the world. This. Hatred of Monsanto, is not unreasonable, it. Is after, all difficult. To think of a company that has ruined the lives of more people around the world either, directly, through its coercive and litigious practices, against small farmers, the world over or indirectly. Through, the pollution of the food supply with their genetically, modified, crops. Many. Are familiar with the company's sordid past including. Its role in the development of Agent Orange and its contribution, to the epidemic of farmer suicides in India but. In Reese yours Monsanto. Has gained special notoriety, for its attempt to push the boundary of patent, law in a self-admitted, effort, to gain a monopoly over, the world's food supply, even. Worse Monsanto. Has thanks. To a revolving, door with the highest levels of the US government, been, not just evil but, extraordinarily, effective. In spreading its evil seed around the world. That. Revolving, door has seen literally dozens, of top Monsanto, executives, drift in and out of the US government agencies, that laughably. Are said to regulate. The agrochemical, business, including. Dennis Deacon Cheney the, former US senator who now acts as legislative, consultant, for Monsanto, Mickey. Kantor the, Commerce secretary under President Clinton who also served on Monsanto's, board of directors, Michael. Taylor Obama's. Deputy FDA commissioner who had previously, served as Monsanto's, vice president, for public policy, Linda. Fisher who, was appointed deputy, administrator of, the EPA in, 2001. Fresh off a five-year, stint as Monsanto's, vice president, of government and public affairs, and US. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas who. Served as a corporate lawyer for Monsanto in the 1970s. These. Officials have helped smooth the way for Monsanto, to achieve a number of key corporate objectives, including. The passage of the infamous Monsanto. Protection Act, in 2013. First. Off President Barack Obama recently signed into law what many are calling the Monsanto. Protection Act. Monsanto. The world's, leading producer, of genetically, modified food will, benefit, greatly from the bill since the legislation, gives companies dealing in modified, organisms, and genetically, engineered, seeds immunity. From federal courts. Nothing. Creepy about that the. Bill states that even if future research shows that GMOs, or GE seeds, cause, major health issues in consumers, the, federal courts will have no power to stop their spread use or, sale. Interesting. To note the bill carrying, the Monsanto rider has virtually nothing. To do with food, agriculture.
Or Consumer, health it was, inserted into a spending bill through lobbying efforts and the good work of freshman. Senator, roy, blunt, well congratulations, mr., brunt. Very, good, you'd be write him a letter I love mr. blunt because Monsanto's. Such a wonderfully, like healthy, nutritious. Company, really looking out and. It's. Amazing the Center for Responsive, Politics notes that Senator, blunt received. Sixty. Four thousand two hundred and fifty dollars from Monsanto. Or his campaign committee, between two thousand uh thing to do with him making a protection, huddle or anything like that that was just purely good citizenry. At work. Mister. Mr. blunt has been the largest Republican, recipient, of Monsanto. Funding, as of, late lovely. So basically you. Know mr., blunt. Gave. Him an out clause we, don't know what these GMO, seeds and all that crazy they, do does sorry for the sailor talk but you, know we don't know what these cats do they basically are poisoning. You know the, plants, to kill bugs and, their. Pesticides. Are actually killing the bee population there's, research, to prove it and now because, of this law technically. We can't do anything yeah we can't go back as citizens, the government can't go back and sue them or hold. Them accountable for, any of the actions that they've done this, is beautiful this is wonderful, politics, as usual you know the old you know pay-to-play kind of technique of you know will give you X amount of dollars get, you elected and then help us out here. But. Ironically. Of all, the corporations, in the world buyer, is one of the few that could compete with Monsanto, for its position as the world's most evil company. There. Are two huge issues with this Bayer Monsanto, merger, the, first is that it's going to raise food prices all, across the United States even and even beyond our borders, farmers, have already, experienced, a 300%, price increase, in recent years on everything, from seeds to, fertilizer all of which are controlled by Monsanto, and every, forecaster. Is predicting, that these prices, are going to climb even higher because of this merger so we're going to have this massive price hike at a time when 14 million Americans have already been unable to provide. Food for their families and then, we're going to have this ethical, problem, that's plagued both of these corporations. For decades let's start with Monsanto this, is a company that produced Agent Orange which resulted, in one of the largest human induced health epidemics, in modern, history, they made dioxin, they created and distributed, PCBs, across the planet and now, pending litigation against. Them for roundup, is right they're looking. At the rap sheet would scare the heck out of anybody, with the brain they're, in the business actually really, when you drill down to it looks more like a cancer, business than anything they've, been hit for false advertising. And bribing public officials, then, move to bear so we got bear and we got Monsanto, move to bear this is a company, that's joined at the hip with the Nazis, during World War two they produced a clotting agent for hemophiliacs, in 1980s, called factor, 8 this, blood clotting, agent was tainted with HIV. And then, after. The government told him they couldn't sell it here they shipped it all over the call over the world infecting, people all over the world that's the company that's part, that's just part of the Bears story right, now they're facing lawsuits over products, like yaz, xarelto. Ishar. Cipro, in fact, the company in 2014. Annual, report listed, 32. Different liability. Lawsuits, that the company is now facing so, now you have, the worst of the worst joining, with the worst of the worst and we have this magnificent. Experience, of greed, with these two huge corporations. This is a merger, of evil, probably. Second only to the kind of merger that we'd see with DuPont, Dow Chemical it's an ugly story again. The media is missing the point they're not looking at all behind what, these people are all in their people these are these corporations, are regarded as people if these are people on a witness stand there, it's.
Going To be a very ugly cross-examination. These are people who should probably be in prison rather. Than engaging in mergers. Although. Less well known by the general public, buyers shameful, history is like, Monsanto's, a case, study in corporate, psychopathy. Founded. In 1863. By Friedrich, Beyer and Johann, Friedrich vest Scott it wasn't until 1899. That, the company trademarked, its most well known product. Aspirin. Less. Well remembered, is the fact that buyer was the first company to trademark heroin. Which, they marketed as a non-addictive, alternative. To morphine and a cough suppressant. But. It was under the stewardship, of Karl Duesberg, at the turn of the 20th century that the company began to develop its psychopathic. Character, in. 1914. The German Ministry of War appointed, Duesberg as one of the co-directors of a commission into the use of dangerous byproducts. From the chemical industry. Unsurprisingly. Duesberg. And his fellow directors, jumped at the opportunity to. Turn their waste into profit by recommending, the development, of chlorine gas for, use on the battlefield a direct, contravention, of the hague convention respecting, the laws and customs of war on land which germany had signed just seven years earlier. Fire. Under. Dues Berg's command did, not just participate, in the development and use of poison gas in warfare they. Spearheaded. It Duesberg. Personally, oversaw, the earliest, tests of poison gas and bragged, about its lethal capabilities. The. Enemy won't even know when an area has been sprayed with it and will, remain quietly, in place until the consequences. Occur. Setting. Up a school for chemical warfare at Beier headquarters, in Leverkusen, Duesberg. Also, oversaw, the development of phosgene and mustard gas, which, he urged the German government to use, this. Phosgene is, the meanest weapon I know I strongly. Recommend that we not let the opportunity, of this war pass without, also testing, gas grenades, on. April. 22nd, 1915. Duesberg. Got his wish, on that. Day 170. Tons of chlorine gas was used against French troops at Ypres Belgium killing. 1000, and injuring, a further four thousand. Attacks. On the British followed, days later, in. All some, 60 thousand people died as the result of the chemical warfare perfected. By buyer and urged on by Duesberg, one of the great largely, forgotten, atrocities. Of the First World War, most. Galling of all Duesberg. Was not ashamed of his accomplishments. On the, contrary he was immensely. Proud of them he. Even commissioned famed artist otto ball Hagen to paint the scene of the earliest poison, gas test at Cologne. Duesberg. So enjoyed the finished result that, he had it hung in his breakfast, room at buyer headquarters. In Leverkusen. Later. Duesberg. Inspired. By a tour of Rockefeller, Standard Oil in the u.s. witted. Buyer to the IG Farben chemical, cartel as, I. Explained, in how Big Oil conquered the world IG. Farben was a key player in the burgeoning oiligarchy, of the early 20th century, boasting, key oil egg arcs like royal dutch/shell, Prince Bernhard and standard, oils Walther Tegel on the boards of its various branches. Buyers. Duesberg, served as the head of its supervisory board. Joining. Duesberg, on the board was frits through meer who, oversaw the construction of the IG Farben Factory at, Auschwitz, which ran on slave labor and participated, in human experimentation. After. The war Tamir, was sentenced, to seven years in prison for his participation in, looting and enslavement of the camp prisoners but, was released in 1950, for good, behavior and in, 1956. Became, chairman of Baier AG, newly. Resurrected from, the ashes of IG Farben. But. This legacy of death is not some ancient relic of buyers distant, past. Decade. After decade the. Company continues. To be involved in scandal, after scandal, involving. Wanton environmental, destruction, injury. And even. Mass murder. Bayar. Accidentally. Funds studies showing its pesticide, is killing the bees and promptly, denies those conclusions a large-scale. Study, on, neonicotinoid. Pesticides is. Adding, to the growing body of evidence that, these agriculture. Chemicals, are indeed harming, bee populations. To say the very least carried, out at 33, sites in the United Kingdom Germany Hungary, the, study found that exposure to, neonicotinoids.
Quote Left, honeybee hives less likely to survive over winter, while, bumblebees, and solitary. Bees produced, fewer, Queens end quote. Marina. Is a chemical, coated, soft plastic, IUD, that proved, to be a huge, moneymaker for Bayer but. Part of the reason that this particular contraceptive. Was so profitable, was, because Bayer was deliberately. Overstating. The benefits, of their device and not, disclosing, some of the rare but dangerous side effects for, example in April of 2009, the FDA had, to issue a warning, letter to Bayer HealthCare because. Its website, for Mirena made a number, of claims that were simply untrue, or unproven. Bear, was so busy, making claims, that the IUD was a perfect, solution, for busy, moms and would increase women's sex lives while making them look and feel, great that. It forgot, to mention that the device is recommended. For women who have already had at least one child the, company also declined to state that the Mirena IUD, increases. The risk of ectopic pregnancies. Which, is when a fertilized, egg attaches. To an area other than, the uterus so, the, CEO was actually speaking to Bloomberg Businessweek, and he is trying to appeal, the Indian courts decision, to, allow. This patent for another company he, said the following we, did not develop, this medicine for Indians, we, developed, it for Western, patients. Who can afford it oh. Look. At that face that's, the kind of face that would say thing like that doesn't he look so smiling uh please we, didn't develop this for Indians. We. Developed it for Westerners. Who, are rich. In. The 1980s, Bayer corporation produced. A medicine, that was supposed to improve the lives of hemophiliacs, Bayer, didn't tell those hemophiliacs, that their product was infected, with HIV, because. That entire families, of hemophiliacs, died with AIDS as the virus spread within, households. When. Bayer was ordered to stop selling their drug in America they dumped their AIDS Laden, product, in Asia and killed Asian, families, no, one with Bayer management, was arrested, no one who made these psychopathic. Quality decisions, went to prison they claimed, the protection, of their status as a corporation, that, corporate, status gave, management, the ability to kill people for profit and not go to prison. Indeed. It is not difficult to see why these two companies each, won a Titan of its respective industry, each, one guilty of the most atrocious crimes, against humanity in the destruction of the environment would. Feel an affinity for each other, but. Why merge, what. Does a pharmaceutical, giant, have to gain from buying out and merging with an agrochemical. Giant especially. One that carries as much baggage as Monsanto, if. The connection between these corporate, behemoths, seems tenuous, then perhaps the key to understanding, it is presented in that 1995. Quote from former Monsanto CEO, Robert Shapiro. We're. Talking about three of the largest industries in the world agriculture. Food and health that now operate as separate businesses, but. There are a set of changes that will lead to their integration. Integration. Of agriculture. Food and health is the goal and once, that goal is reached the, entire life-support. System, of the human population, including. All our food and medicine, will, be in the hands of a few mega, corporations. Indeed. The history of the production, of food and pharmaceuticals, has always followed the same trajectory, away. From natural abundant. Locally. Produced organic materials. And toward, artificial, scarce, factory. Produced synthetic, alternatives. Control. Of the global food supply is needless. To say along, with control, of money and oil one, of the pillars upon which the globalist, oligarchs, seek to construct their system of total control although.
There Is no proof whatsoever that, he said it the, dubious quote sometimes attributed, to Henriques is nonetheless quite true, who. Controls the food supply controls, the people who. Controls the energy can control whole continents, who, controls money can, control the world. The. Process, of consolidating, these industries, is of course nothing new in fact, it started long ago as, I. Explained, in how Big Oil conquered the world even. The current agrochemical, industry has, to be seen in its historical, context, as a fusion, of the petro chemical fertilizer, Giants DuPont. Dow Hercules, powder and other businesses, in the Standard Oil orbit, with. The ABC, seed cartel of Archer Daniels Midland Bunge, Cargill, and louis-dreyfus. These. Previously, separate, fields were gradually, consolidated. Under the flag of agribusiness. Itself. Developed, at Harvard Business School in the 1950s. With the help of research conducted by Vasily, leontief's for, the Rockefeller, Foundation, and as. I also explained, in how Big Oil conquered the world big, pharma too was a creation of the same drive toward consolidation. And spearheaded, by the same people, from. The Carnegie and Rockefeller, fronted, institutionalization. Of the medical profession, to standard, oil's role in supplying the petrochemicals, for the burgeoning pharmaceutical, industry, to the role of Rockefeller, Institute researchers. Like Cornelius, Rhodes who developed chemotherapy. From the mustard gas pioneered, by Baier the. Overlap, of the oligarchical, interests, in cementing, global control has been abundantly. Clear. Then. With, the advancement, of GMO technology in, the 1980s, and 1990s again. With considerable, help from the Rockefellers, and other oil agar kacal interests, new. Opportunities, for consolidation, presented, themselves. Seeds. Used to be sold by seed companies, and fertilizers. And herbicides used, to be sold by chemical companies but. Then the GMO revolution, came along and all of these companies spun, off biotech. Branches, to genetically, engineer seeds. That. In turn opened, up opportunities, to create GMO, seed strains that are tailored to work with patented, herbicides, and fertilizers. The. Combination, of GMO seeds and specially. Tailored agrochemicals. Has been especially lucrative, for Monsanto which was the first to capitalize, on those synergies when it won regulatory, approval, for its first Roundup, Ready soybeans, in 1994. Roundup. Aka, glyphosate, has gone on to become the most used agricultural. Chemical in the history, of the world. Monsanto. And buyer not, to mention their cohorts, in the agrochemical, pharmaceutical. And euphemistically. Named Lifesciences, industries. Are ultimately, seeking the same thing, complete. Control over the population from. The genetic engineering of its food supply to, the control of its medicines, and chemicals. It. Is a race toward complete, centralization. And with, this acquisition buyer, and Monsanto are getting, a head start. Particularly. Frightening, then though, hardly surprising, that, this latest round of consolidation, is being spearheaded by two corporations. As thoroughly, deplorable. As buyer, and Monsanto. Buyer. One. Of the pieces of IG Farben grim, and oleg ARCA coal legacy supplier. Of chemicals, for the poison gas attacks of World War one knowing. Seller of HIV, contaminated, vaccines, mass. Murderer of bees seller. Of tainted GMO crops and, Monsanto. Dumper. Of toxic chemicals proud, seller of carcinogens. Sewer. Of farmers, cause. Of farmer suicides. Suppressor. Of scientific, dissent.
Are. You feeling safe knowing that a quarter of the world's food supply will, soon be in their combined hands, if. Not, then, all of the efforts that have been made in recent years to march, against Monsanto, must, be translated into a boycott. Against buyer and all, of their friends in the burgeoning biotech. Big a grass seed cartel, GMO, Franken industry it, is, only by increasing, our support for locally sourced organic heirloom. Seed. Grown produce that, we can hope to supplant, this new mega giant and consign. It to the dustbin of history where. It belongs. The. Corbett report is, brought to you by the data DVD series.
