Political and Corporate Elite Shun GM Food on Their Own Plate

With a sad twist of irony, corporate and government elite dine on safe, organic food while the masses, those very people who are supposedly represented and

Yes they want to feed it to the public, but not good for themselves, what is good for the goose s/b good for the gander. This news was reported last fall, Parsifal posted to Project NSearch & possibly on One Vibration & Con Trail as well! Thanks Elderberry.

The images show exactly what the global elites in the know want to try and avoid.....
I'm glad I'm not alone in posting this...good for Parsifal....but I didn't see it that time ...Please Share, this needs more exposure now especially....everyone needs to see how they are being conned....its disgusting...The UK Gov is joining the gmo con now too...of course that bunch may be eating ORGANIC if any have the brains.....doubtful! Thanx for your comments and thanx Henriette for forwarding x

I agree with you, Rose.

Thank you, Elderberry for the posting.

In "Stop The World. I Want To Get Off", there was a song which got very popular in its day. The song was "What Kind Of Fool Am I, Who Never Fell In Love?".

HOWEVER, there was another song which I haven't forgotten since I heard it. Well let me place the scene. The story takes place in England and the Anthony Newley character, who is running for public office, is speaking to a crowd trying to convince the people to vote for him. Now please don't take the words literally. They are symbolic. They go "Mumbo. Jumbo. Rubarb. Rubarb. Up your Flubarb. Liberty Hall. And dear friends, if I am elected? I'm all right chaps. Screw you all!".

Too many politicians operate that way unfortunately.

Organic all the way. Thanks for the great post Elderberry. Canada is currently being snowed by Monsanto and of course Harper is a go all the way on everything they say. It's all about the deep pockets. It's like being in the front seat of a runaway train here. I refuse to be a conformist lemming, I will NOT be suckered.

Thx for re-posting Elderberry, indeed this was widely circulated before and I am rather surprised that some seem to not know yet. The fight against Monsanto is for a good reasion after all.

These studies where the rats got such dreadful cancerous growths shown in the pictures (were the studies in France and Sweden, Elderberry?) are the only long term studies of the effects of GMOs on animals - the ones Monsanto did were ridiculously short - and of course they canned any that tended towards unfavourability.

Sadly it is no surprise that those in power are going organic - and forcing GMOs on the naive populace - hypocrisy seems to be the name of the game in politics - where it will end?

Will forward this (computer problems allowing).

Most certainly they won't eat the crap.

Look, if you become sick, you help support the ones who make money off of the many medical treatments you obtain. If you die, well so what, I'm sure they all have a stake in the Funeral Industry too.

They put high fructose corn syrup in just about everything and that led to a larger amount of people being over weight and becoming diabetic. See the first paragraph on who that helps.

If they went around killing us off by the millions straight up, the masses would catch on and rise up after them. What is the numbers, something like under 3,000 people control the world. Their numbers are low compared to the rest of the world, so they keep things disguised so the majority of people will not catch on. Billions against a few thousand....they don't have much of a chance, except they depend on the billions NOT to "get it" that those few are killing them off.

The way you can cause a multitude to submit to you is through food and the water. Just enough of the poisons in both and people will slowly die off, a lot more children being born with neurobiological issues, so they will not be a problem for the Authorities. Once they continue with the Austerity and all that people will be too sick and tired to do much about anything is how they figure.

For those who somehow manage to stay strong and have just enough of a mind they'll send off to the endless wars that they create to protect whatever it is at the moment to them. There is ALWAYS a boogey man that one can tell the people about, so long as the people don't realize the ones sending the children off too war are the boogey men and their masters behind them.

Bon Appetit!

Nope, Joanne......not I. You do know don't you that Prince Phillip has been growing his own veggies and raising his own non-modified hogs for over 2 decades now (he doesn't his staff does...he just reaps the benefits of their labour) THAt should have told everyone what was up then in the early '90's. But noooooo, just a novelty for a royal to go totally organic.....riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Give me a frikken break. ALL the elitists drink pure water and dine on the very best GMO-free produce/cattle/fowl/pork/etc. They wouldn't deign to put in their mouths what they expect the rest of us unwashed masses to feed on. Just another reason for.........nevermind.

Of course they do. A prime example is Jane Clark, whose family owns Cooperstown, NY, heiress to the Singer Sewing Machine fortune, family supported Hitler and fascism in general. She owns a Lot of land in central New York, and raises organic and natural beefers, crops, etc. for her consumption at her penthouse on Park Ave.

First Lady Michelle Obama digs up the White House lawn to plant an organic garden, her husband promotes a GMO agenda within his administration.
Remember the notice at a Monsanto staff canteen stating the decision "to remove, as far as practicable, GM soya and maize from all food products served in our restaurant. We have taken the above steps to ensure that you, the customer, can feel confident in the food we serve.!! Will not serve GMO foods to their workers but want us to eat it!!!!
So GMO products are okay for our consumption but not theirs?? He is in bed with Monsanto but will not serve it to his family. Why should our families eat it?? We are Monsanto's guinea pigs and their trial experiments is being done on us! Say no to GMO products and produce!!!

That is no surprise. You know the saying,in fact it was on Care2 the other day:"All pigs are equal, but some pigs are more equal."
It is a little like exporting DDT to other countries, after its damage became evident here. Hey, a guy's gotta make a buck somehow?

Dandelion says it all beautifully. Pesticides equal cancer, GM sets all of us who are forced to eat it into God knows what health problems, and President Obama has been such a disappointment. Has anyone besides me noticed how quiet Michelle and Dr. Jill have become on veteran affairs? The only way to make it better for our kids is to keep holding the mirror up to all politicians. TY Elderberry for posting noted.

Thanks for the post, Elderberry. No, I'm not surprised but I am disgusted. It's not that those people don't care about us. They don't even think about us. And Obama! I have lost all my faith in him. It's something new and bad with him everyday! So disappointing.

I would have been suspecting half of these posts to be "conspiracy theorists" a decade ago - now I'm with Dandelion - there is a conspiracy - and it's very dangerous and very real - the nation has become a Plutocracy and is fracking the water and air, and feeding our livestock Monsanto grains and even contaminating our organic produce - this is pretty damn serious and now I believe calculated!

Qoute: "Remember the notice at a Monsanto staff canteen stating the decision "to remove, as far as practicable, GM soya and maize from all food products served in our restaurant. We have taken the above steps to ensure that you, the customer, can feel confident in the food we serve." According to Tony Coombes, the company's spokesperson, "Yes, this is the case, and it is because we believe in choice." "

Hear, hear who speaks of choice. These hypocrites.

Noted, tweeted, and shared. Obviously, those in power want the same things that we want for our families---Safe, nutritional, healthy, food even organic. The irony is they are in the position to get what they want while to the general public, there is no transparency in our food supply. The way they look at it is it's nothing personal to allow companies to add things to our food; it's just business as usual. They get money for their campaigns or out of their products, and we get the shaft.

Thank you elderberry for this great eye opening post. It reminds me of a great exchange between F.Scott- Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway = FSF to Hemingway "well you know ole boy, the rich are different" Hemingway's comeback "yeah they got more money" and that folks is where it is at! It is all about the MONEY! MonSATAN and its people along with our hypocrite politicians may avoid the food and water but they still have to breathe the same air we do. No getting around that. To boot none of them are going to live forever. We are born, we live and then die. All the money in the world will not change that reality. Look at Steve Jobs, billions to his name and still died fairly young.
