Doctor Huber on the Glyphosate New Life Form and Destruction of Well Being

If you will recall, prior to GMO alfalfa being approved a few years ago, Dr. Huber sent a four or five page summation of his findings regarding a new detrimental life form found to be associated with GMO’s and their consumption. It’s like a fungus, and causes abortions, declining health, liver stress and death.

The Obama Administration ignored his warning and his findings, and approved yet another GMO crop.

Here is a 1:40 minute talk by Dr. Huber on this problem. If you think GMO’s are okay, at this point, I have to pass a judgment. You are either ignorant or evil. If you’re ignorant, listen to this talk and take notes. If you’re evil…the final judgment is coming, and you have a short time to repent and mend your ways.

FDA Seeking Life In Prison for Amish Salve Maker

My apologies for only just hearing about this. The man is being rail roaded and it’s all very life threatening. Please click through the link and scan the entire article. There is a petition to sign that is linked at the top of the source page. Not sure how much good it will do, but an outcry is the smallest response anyone with a conscience could find acceptable:

 

KY Amish Farmer Jailed over a Salve Label; the FDA Wants Him Jailed for Life

 


But then the FDA fixated on him and just would not let go. You’ll see in the indictment. In my line of hobby work (political blogging), I’ve seen this over and over and over again. An alphabet agency gets you in its sights and just will not quit.

And why would they quit? No skin off their teeth and gives them something to do. State agencies are bad enough, but the feds… the feds are especially lawless. There is no accountability in a federal agency, they break their own rules as a matter of course.

I have a little inside info on why this persecution is taking place plus a couple of questions. “Inside info” because I’m involved in food and health freedom, so aware of persecution of other farmers around the country.

The first thing of note is that, when it comes to powerful well-funded federal agencies looking to set precedent, the Amish have a special target on their backs. Why? Because they generally don’t use lawyers which makes them easy prey. They don’t use lawyers because the Amish are self-sufficient, they know their constitutional rights and they are a peaceful community. They don’t fight back (unless lives are at stake).

The FDA is also after an enormously successful Amish farm in PA, Miller’s Organic Farm. Like Sam, the Millers have established a private club whereby only members can purchase products. As a member of Miller’s Organic Farm, I can order anything I want, including raw milk, that can be shipped to me anywhere in the country. (Read up on the Miller’s case here.)

The FDA hates private membership clubs because club sales and products are NOT subject to FDA rules and regulations! Private memberships are protected under the Constitution’s contract clause. I can contract with anyone I want, sell them anything I made or produced, and the state may not interfere. The state, of course, hates this kind of freedom and will do anything it can to pierce that veil. Including bankrupting businesses and jailing a peaceful farmer for the rest of his life.

The FDA also seems to have a special soft spot for bloodroot salves. They’ve been persecuting makers of bloodroot salves for decades, starting with Greg Caton, jailing him twice and driving him from the country. A quick search brought up this company as well.

Two questions:

  1. Why was Sam kept handcuffed during the hearing on Friday. Was he a flight risk or a danger to anyone? IMO, the gov was attempting to show Sam who’s the boss. Newsflash: the gov is not Sam’s boss.
  2. Why did the FDA wait so long to formally charge Sam? Most of his alleged crimes (Counts 1-11) took place between 9/2013 and 1/2014 with the M.M. situation (Count 12) in 12/2014. If Sam is so dangerous that he needs to be jailed for life… why did they wait for years to charge him?

Here comes the Girod indictment.

This is pretty long but a lot the counts are basically repeats with different dates. The gov likes to pad the bill so the defendant will take a plea.

Remember, folks, we are talking about a Chickweed Salve here along with two other equally benign, non-drug products that are for sale all over the world, that I and my friends have used with no ill-effects (in fact, to good effect). Is the purpose of this prosecution to protect the public or to punish those citizens who don’t kneel at the pointy end of a bureaucrat’s pen (and, in this case, firearm)?

The FDA vs Kentucky Amish Farmer Samuel A. Girod

Case: 5:15-cr-00087 GRAND JURY CHARGES (click here to download a pdf of the indictment)

  • 1-16 are BACKGROUND.
  • 17-44 are the COUNTS (charges)
  • My notes are indented and in italics.
  • Total possible prison time is 58 years

1. Defendant SAMUEL A. GIROD operated an establishment at 409 Satterfield Lane, Owingsville, KY 40360, which is in Bath County, in the Eastern District of Kentucky. This establishment, which did business under various names, including “Satterfield Naturals”, “S.A.E.G.”, and “A.M.S. Associates”, manufactured and marketed products for the treatment of various ailments, including skin disorders, cancer, and sinus infections.

NOTES: Ok. I’ve changed my business name more times than Carters got pills. Not a crime yet. Sam’s products are effective and have never hurt anyone. And, if they have hurt anyone, prove it and Sam can make restitution.

Ya know, if one person was harmed in 20+ years of thousands of people using Sam’s products, I’d say that was a pretty good track record. Hey, I know! Let’s compare that to Big Pharma’s drug safety record, ok? Even aspirin kills 11 people a year. Every. Single. Year. And then there’s this: http://bit.ly/deathbydoctor Just sayin’.

2. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. § 301 et seq. (“FDCA”), existed to protect the health and safety of the American public by regulating the manufacture and distribution of all drugs shipped or received in interstate commerce. The Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) was the federal agency charged with enforcing the FDCA.

NOTES: First of all, NONE of Sam’s products contain any drugs. Zero. The FDA tested all his products and Sam had an independent lab test all his products. No drugs. THIS IS CRITICAL. No drugs in anything.

While the FDA/FDCA can make labeling demands, they can’t accuse Sam of a crime having to do with manufacture or distribution of drugs if there aren’t any drugs in it. Once Sam changed his label to comply and once there were no drugs found in the ANY of the products, the FDA lost whatever jurisdiction it claimed.

3. The FDCA required persons who owned or operated an establishment engaged in the manufacture, preparation, propagation, compounding, or processing of a drug to register annually with the FDA. See 21 U.S.C. §§ 360(b)(l), (c)(l). Every establishment in which a drug was manufactured, processed, packed, or held, for introduction into interstate commerce or after such introduction was subject to inspection by the FDA. See 21 U.S.C. §§ 360(h)(l) and 374. GIROD did not register his establishment with the FDA.

NOTES: No drugs so no requirement to register.

4. GIROD manufactured and distributed a product called “Chickweed Healing Salve.” This product typically bore labeling claiming that the product was “[g]ood for skin disorders. Dry skin, cuts, burns, draws, and poison ivy.” In many cases, GIROD also distributed sales pamphlets touting the product’s effectiveness in treating skin cancer, diaper rash, fungus infections, and various other skin ailments.

NOTES: Per FDA demands, Sam changed his product labels for everything sold to the public. He even took the word “healing” off, so moot point.

5. GIROD manufactured and distributed a product called “TO-MOR-GONE.” This product typically bore labeling identifying the product as a “black salve” and a “natural herbal remedy.” In many cases, GIROD also distributed sales pamphlets touting the product’s effectiveness in removing warts, moles, and other skin growths, and stating: “TO-MOR-GONE is very good at removing tumors.” GIROD used an extract of the bloodroot plant (Sanguiniaria Canadensis) in TO-MOR-GONE. This ingredient was an escharotic agent, meaning that it had a caustic, corrosive effect on human skin.

NOTES: Again, he changed the label when told to do so. Bloodroot is not a drug, either, btw. It’s a PLANT used for thousands of years for HEALING purposes. Like a lot of other plants.

Bloodroot can have a caustic, corrosive effect on human skin, but that’s why we use it, lol. Bloodroot cures skin cancer because it burns off the cells. It’s also a drawing compound so it pulls the cancer cells to the surface, then kills them. People even take the stuff internally.

I and many of my friends have used bloodroot for years for small skin cancers, moles, small growths. Works like a charm and doesn’t leave a scar. Amazing stuff. I got mine (before I knew Sam) from altcancer.com formulated by Greg Caton, the first guy the FDA put in jail for bloodroot products.

6. GIROD manufactured and distributed a product called “R.E.P.” This product typically bore labeling that instructed the consumer as follows: “For sinus infection, put on forehead and cheeks. For breath freshener put drop on tongue.” In many cases, GIROD also distributed sales pamphlets touting the product’s effectiveness in treating sinus infections, cold symptoms, and sore throats.

NOTES: Sam took all the healing claims out of his literature for all products sold to the public. Sine Eze (the new name for R.E.P.) is amazing, by the way, a blend of essential oils. Love the stuff. Seriously. This has been sold for over 20 years, no drugs in it, Sam took all the healing claims out of the literature… where’s the beef?

7. The FDCA defined a “drug” as an article that was: (a) intended for use in the diagnosis. cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease in man; and/or (b) intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man. See 21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(l)(B) and (C). Chickweed Healing Salve, TO-MOR-GONE, and R.E.P., were “drugs,” as defined within the FDCA.

NOTES: When Sam removed the offending language, those products were no longer able to be classified as drugs by the FDCA. Plus, the products were all tested by Sam and the FDA and no actual drugs were found.

8. The FDCA prohibited the introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce (or the causing thereof) of any drug that was misbranded. See 21 U.S.C. § 33 l(a).

NOTES: Not drugs, branding corrected, no longer subject to FDCA/FDA regulations.

9. A drug was misbranded if it was manufactured, prepared, propagated, compounded, or processed in an establishment that was not registered with the FDA. See 21 U.S.C. § 352(0). Chickweed Healing Salve, TO-MOR-GONE, and R.E.P. were each manufactured, prepared, propagated, and processed in GIROD’s unregistered establishment and, thus, were each misbranded.

NOTES: Not drugs so establishment not required to be registered.

10. A drug was also misbranded unless its labeling contained “adequate directions for use.” 21 U.S.C. § 352(f)(l). Adequate directions for use were directions under which a layman “can use a drug safely and for the purposes for which it is intended.” 21 C.F.R. § 201.5. Chickweed Healing Salve and TO-MOR-GONE did not bear labeling containing adequate directions for use and, thus, were each misbranded.

NOTES: Not drugs so this requirement does not apply.

11. A drug was also misbranded unless its labeling contained a listing of each active ingredient. See 21 U.S.C. § 352(e)(l)(A)(ii). R.E.P. did not bear labeling that contained a listing of each active ingredient and, thus, was misbranded.

NOTES: Not drugs so labeling requirements do not apply.

12. A drug was also misbranded unless its labeling contained “such adequate warnings against use in those pathological conditions … where its use may be dangerous to health, or against unsafe dosage or methods or duration of administration or application, in such manner and form, as are necessary for the protection of users.” 21 U.S.C. § 352(f)(2). TO-MOR-GONE did not bear labeling warning of its caustic, corrosive effect on human skin and the scarring that could result. TO-MOR-GONE also did not bear labeling warning against its exclusive use to treat skin cancer. As such, TO-MOR-GONE was misbranded.

NOTES: Not a drug so labeling requirements do not apply. If bloodroot has its own requirements for labeling, I can’t find those requirements. That said, Sam has always complied with every labeling requirement for all products sold to the public and remains committed to doing so.

13. A drug was also misbranded if it was “dangerous to health when used in the dosage or manner, or with the frequency or duration prescribed, recommended, or suggested in the labeling thereof.” 21 U.S.C. § 352(j). TO-MOR-GONE was dangerous to health when used in the dosage, manner, frequency, and duration that was recommended and suggested in the labeling and, thus, was misbranded.

NOTES: See previous NOTES.

14. On or about September 17, 2013, the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri entered an order (hereinafter, “the injunction”) permanently restraining and enjoining GIROD from manufacturing, processing, packaging, labeling, holding, selling, or distributing certain products, until various conditions were met. The products covered by the injunction included Chickweed Healing Salve, TO-MOR- GONE, R.E.P., and any other products similar in composition or effect to Chickweed Healing Salve, TO-MOR-GONE, or R.E.P. The conditions under which the injunction could be lifted included: (a) GIROD’s removal from his products, labels, labeling, and promotional materials, of all claims that caused Chickweed Healing Salve, TO-MOR- GONE, and R.E.P. to be “drugs” within the meaning of the FDCA; (b) GIROD’s removal of all extracts or components of bloodroot plant (Sanguiniaria Canadensis) from his products intended for human use; (c) the FDA’s inspection of GIROD’s establishment; and (d) the FDA’s notification to GIROD of his compliance with the terms of the injunction.

NOTES: Sam obeyed the injunction as follows:
a) Changed the labeling on all products sold to the public as ordered.
b) Stopped making the salve. I’m not sure how the FDA can require this since there are bloodroot salves for sale online… even on Amazon.
c) Allowed the inspection. I’m wondering where the FDA gets its authority to demand a search when the products don’t fall under their jurisdiction?
d) Stopped manufacturing, processing, packaging, labeling, holding, selling, or distributing certain products until a, b and c were met. He’s still not doing any manufacturing or selling which, of course, puts a cramp in the family finances.

Wondering also where the FDA gets its authority to enforce an injunction when products don’t fall under its jurisdiction.

15. The injunction pennitted [FDA typo] the FDA to inspect GIROD’s establishment, without prior notice and when reasonably deemed necessary, for five years from the date of entry of the order. Among other things, the injunction provided that these inspections would include reasonable and immediate access to buildings, equipment, raw ingredients, in-process materials, finished products, containers, packing material, labeling, and other material therein.

NOTES: Really? What gives the FDA the authority to demand this for products outside of their jurisdiction? Yes, I’m asking the same question over and over again.

16. Following the injunction, GIROD continued to manufacture, market, and distribute, in interstate commerce, Chickweed Healing Salve, TO-MOR-GONE, R.E.P., and other products similar in composition and effect. GIROD did not inform the purchasers of these products that he was under a court ordered injunction and was prohibited from distributing these products.

NOTES: I don’t believe this is true, that Sam defied the injunction, but there are a couple of points to be made here:
1. All together now: these products are not drugs so outside FDA jurisdiction.
2. There were stores all over the country selling Sam’s products. He didn’t know the names of all these stores or even the sellers. Sometimes people would come to Sam and buy lots of bulk product and drive away. That those products were still on the shelves in Podunk, Alaska is simply out of Sam’s control.
3. In the COUNTS below are several claims by the FDA that Sam continued to sell product to the public. I don’t know if that’s true but I doubt it. Sam stopped selling to the public. He did have a private membership club. That is perfectly legal although the FDA hates these clubs. Maybe these sales were through the club and the FDA is neglecting to mention that?
4. Of note is that, at this moment, the FDA is also pursuing Miller’s Organic Farm in PA for selling raw milk and organic home-processed foods all over the country. The Millers do this through their private membership club. The FDA wants to pierce this and end these clubs once and for all.
5. Remember that we are talking about a Chickweed Salve here. Is the purpose of this indictment to protect the public or to punish those citizens who don’t kneel at the pointy end of a bureaucrat’s pen (and, in this case, firearm)?

<End of BACKGROUND. Now the COUNTS (charges).>

COUNT 1 18 u.s.c. § 372

Not more than 6 years imprisonment, $250,000 fine, and 3 years supervised release

17. Paragraphs 1 through 16 of this Indictment are re-alleged and incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein. [This phrase is repeated throughout, I guess a bureaucratic requirement.]

18. On or about November 21, 2013, in Bath County, in the Eastern District of Kentucky, SAMUEL A. GIROD knowingly and willfully conspired with others to prevent, by force, intimidation, and threat, FDA Compliance Safoty Officers (“CSOs”) N.L.P. and M.D.S. from discharging the duties of their offices, trust, and places of confidence under the United States; and to induce, by force, intimidation, and threat, FDA CSOs N.L.P. and M.D.S. to leave the place where their duties as officers of the United States were required to be performed.

MANNER AND MEANS OF THE CONSPIRACY
The manner and means used to accomplish the objectives of the conspiracy included, among others, the following:

19. Members of the conspiracy, including GIROD, physically surrounded N.L.P. and M.D.S. when they arrived to inspect GIROD’s establishment pursuant to the injunction.

NOTES: The Amish surround everyone who visits. They like to hear the conversation, they like to participate and to ask questions. They are not shy, nor are they armed or threatening in any way shape or form. This claim is positively ludicrous. Go visit an Amish family or church and start a lively conversation. You’ll be surrounded shortly.

I don’t know the details on the following 3 points but I can tell you that Sam and his family are always polite and non-threatening. You have to know them… I do.

20. Members of the conspiracy, including GIROD, obstructed N.L.P.’s and M.D.S.’s attempts to gather information about GIROD’s establishment.

21. Members of the conspiracy, including GIROD, prevented N.L.P. and M.D.S. from inspecting GIROD’s establishment.

22. Members of the conspiracy, including GIROD, demanded that N.L.P. and M.D.S. leave GIROD’s establishment. All in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 372.

COUNT 2 18 u.s.c. § 1505

Not more than 5 years imprisonment, $250,000 fine, and 3 years supervised release.

23. Paragraphs 1 through 22 of this Indictment are re-alleged and incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein.

24. On or about November 21, 2013, in Bath County, in the Eastern District of Kentucky, SAMUEL A. GIROD corruptly, by threats and force, and by threatening communication, influenced, obstructed and impeded, and endeavored to influence, obstruct, and impede the due and proper administration of the law under which a pending proceeding was being had before the FDA, all in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1505.

NOTES: By threats and force? Not Sam. You can bring in character witnesses galore. I’ll bet even the jailers will be testifying on his behalf after his vacay at the prison on Old Frankfort Pike.

COUNT 3 21 u.s.c. § 33l(p)

Not more than 3 years imprisonment, $250,000 fine, and I year supervised release.

25. Paragraphs I through 22 of this Indictment are re-alleged and incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein.

26. In or about September 2013, and continuing through in or about July 2015, in Bath County, in the Eastern District of Kentucky, SAMUEL A. GIROD, with the intent to defraud or mislead, operated an establishment at 409 Satterfield Lane, Owingsville, KY 40360, at which location GIROD manufactured, prepared, propagated, and processed Chickweed Healing Salve, TO-MOR-GONE, R.E.P., and products similar in composition and effect, and which GIROD had failed to register with the United States Food and Drug Administration in accordance with 21 U.S.C. § 360, all in violation of 21 U.S.C. §§ 33 l(p) and 333(a)(2).

NOTES: Didn’t we just cover this? NOT DRUGS, so NOT UNDER FDA jurisdiction.

COUNT 4 21 U.S.C. § 331(a)

Not more than 3 years imprisonment, $250,000 fine, and I year supervised release.

27. Paragraphs 1 through 22 of this Indictment are re-alleged and incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein.

28. On or about September 27, 2013, in Bath County, in the Eastern District of Kentucky, and elsewhere, SAMUEL A. GIROD, with the intent to defraud or mislead, introduced and delivered for introduction into interstate commerce a quantity of Chickweed Healing Salve, which was misbranded in that it: (a) was manufactured, prepared, propogated, and processed in an establishment that was not registered with the FDA; and (b) failed to bear labeling containing adequate directions for use; all in violation of21 U.S.C. §§ 33l(a) and 333(a)(2).

NOTES: They are saying that Sam — with intent to defraud — sold a quantity of Chickweed Salve over state lines. So, again, not a drug therefore not subject to FDA regulations with regard to registering his establishment and labeling.

COUNT 5 21 U.S.C. § 331(a)

Not more than 3 years imprisonment, $250,000 fine, and I year supervised release.

29. Paragraphs I through 22 of this Indictment are re-alleged and incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein.

NOTES: Not a drug therefore not subject to FDA regulations.

COUNT 6 21 U.S.C. § 33l(a)

Not more than 3 years imprisonment, $250,000 fine, and I year supervised release.

31. Paragraphs 1 through 22 of this Indictment are re-alleged and incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein.

GIROD, with the intent to defraud or mislead, introduced and delivered for introduction into interstate commerce a quantity of TO-MOR-GONE, which was misbranded in that it: (a) was manufactured, prepared, propogated, and processed in an establishment that was not registered with the FDA; (b) failed to bear labeling containing adequate directions for use; (c) failed to bear labeling containing such adequate warnings against use in those pathological conditions where its use may be dangerous to health or against unsafe dosage or methods or duration of administration or application, in such manner and fonn, as are necessary for the protection of users; and (d) was dangerous to health when used in the dosage or manner or with the frequency or duration recommended or suggested in the labeling thereof; all in violation of21 U.S.C. §§ 33l(a) and 333(a)(2).

NOTES: Same as above only for TO-MOR-GONE which contains bloodroot. Sam complied with all labeling requirements. Are there specific labeling requirements for bloodroot salve? I don’t know. I am confident Sam would comply with those, too.

COUNT 7 21 U.S.C. § 331(a)

Not more than 3 years imprisonment, $250,000 fine, and I year supervised release.

33. Paragraphs 1 through 22 of this Indictment are re-alleged and incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein.

NOTES: All together now: not a drug, not under the purview of the FDA.

Missouri Couple Struggling through Medical Kidnap

Every now and then, you come across a story that is so gut wrenching that it takes time to process. This is one of those stories. And if you get through all of this without feeling seriously mind-slapped, spend some time reading the other stories on the same horrific topic. This simply has got to stop. It is abuse of “authority” that is unconscionable. Even if only half of this is true, it needs attention and the “officials” need a stern reminder that everything comes down to the consent of the governed. Hat tip to Inalienable Wrights for this…

Here’s the story, with the link in the headline. This is only an excerpt. I encourage you to visit the site:

Husband of Retired Missouri Couple Medically Kidnapped – Estate Plundered to Pay for Unwanted Medical Confinement

by Health Impact News/MedicalKidnap.com Staff

Last November marks the beginning of the fourth year that 70 year old Charley Taylor of Missouri has been held by Morgan County in a nursing home against his will, after a trip to the emergency room turned into a permanent medical confinement.

Although he has doctors who have stated that he is competent and of sound mind, and although his wife Helen had power of attorney to make decisions for him if he was medically not capable, a state-appointed conservator has been appointed to him by the court to make all decisions, even against his own wishes and the wishes of his wife.

Meanwhile his wife Helen, who has been fighting for her husband’s freedom, has also been battling against false accusations herself.  She has been sent to jail based on false charges and later released due to lack of evidence, kidnapped and confined to a mental hospital until a doctor determined that there was nothing wrong with her, and has been evaluated five times to prove her own competency. She told Health Impact News:

We were financially set for the rest of our lives after 40 years of marriage until I called 911. Our lives have been destroyed and I am told everything to do when I see him.

If this is justice, I don’t need it.  We want to be together.  He is 70 years old, and I am 67.

I have never had but a speeding ticket in my life until the county took him from me.  Since then, I have been labeled a thief, a person that blows up nursing homes, called in to take a lie detector for abusing animals.  The county just won’t stop with the things they accuse me of.  I was a grandmother of 13.  Now, I am a homeless woman that lives in an apartment across the street from my husband in a nursing home.  Oh, I forgot, an abuser of my husband.  No charges after 719 days in court. No witnesses.  I can’t believe what a crooked county can do to people.

Helen and Charley worked hard for many years for everything that they owned—sometimes working several jobs in addition to their full-time jobs.  Helen said, “I’ve worked all my life.”  From 1979 to 2005 she was a field representative and managed doctors in medical facilities.  She was so good at it that, she was sent across the country to open new facilities and train personnel.  Additionally, Helen was also a mayor for two years in the town of Barnett, while also working a full-time job that required frequent travel, as well as a holding a municipal judge’s license.

The county has been depleting Helen and Charles’s joint properties.  Helen refuses to part with any more.  She said, “They are telling me to sell and they can split the money.”….(Medical Kidnap site link…)

 

Mercury in Vaccines By Their Own Admission

Part of a fantastic article on this complete exposure of the vaccine pushers is below. Perhaps people will stop letting the powers that shouldn’t be poison their children if they learn about this. We can hope, right?

Here is the article, and the link is in the title…Spread far and wide, please!

 

CDC Knowingly LIED About Mercury in Vaccines: Proof Has Surfaced

By Catherine J Frompovich

 

Finally it’s coming to light and the fact is being told: Vaccines given to infants contained inordinate amounts of ethylmercury in the form of Thimerosal; the CDC knew about it and conspired to keep the devastating reality of mercury damage from healthcare consumers and public health agencies. A true crime against humanity and nothing short of federal agency child abuse!

Thanks to the intrepid vaccine safety advocacy work by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his writing partner Lyn Redwood, RN, MSN, we learn,

FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) was responsible for adding up the cumulative exposure to mercury from infant vaccines, a simple calculation that, astonishingly, had never been performed by either the FDA or the CDC. When the agency finally performed that basic calculation, the regulators realized that a six month-old infant who received thimerosal-preserved vaccines following the recommended CDC vaccine schedule would have received a jaw dropping 187.5 micrograms of mercury. [1] [CJF emphasis added]

Those calculations were made back in the late 1990s and CDC officials have been covering up their voodoo vaccine consensus science ever since! Those actions should be prosecuted as crimes against humanity, including excessive child abuse by a government agency, and the CDC should be revamped from the inside out; restructured; and ‘surgically’ separated from Big Pharma.

Stopping the DEA Rule on CBD

Earlier this motnh, I posted about the DEA attempting to expand their authority under the Controlled Substances Act to the non-psychoactive cannabinoid of CBD. Many, many people benefit from CBD oil, and there is legal action against the unlawful expansion by the DEA on CBD oil…Read the following article for more information. And in the meantime, don’t forget that while Sessions, Trump’s pick for AG, is the best on “free” trade, he needs serious education on cannabis. We can look forward to educating him if he is approved by the Senate. 🙂

 

Here is the aforementioned article:

Legal challenge filed against DEA’s new marijuana extract rule

The hemp industry has taken the DEA to court in the wake of a controversial new rule on marijuana extracts.

Denver’s Hoban Law Group, representing the Hemp Industries Association, Centuria Natural Foods and RMH Holdings LLC, on Friday filed a judicial review action against the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, alleging the agency overstepped its bounds when enacting a rule establishing coding for marijuana derivatives such as cannabidiol (CBD) oil. The action, Hoban attorneys allege, puts at risk a booming cannabis and hemp industry and a wide variety of hemp-based products currently on the market.

“We’re talking about jobs and the economy and agricultural (revival),” attorney Bob Hoban said in an interview with The Cannabist on Friday.

The DEA last month confounded many in the cannabis industry with the filing of a final rule notice establishing a Controlled Substances Code Number for “marihuana extract,” and subsequently maintaining marijuana, hemp and their derivatives as Schedule I substances.

DEA officials said the code number would assist in the tracking of materials for research and would aid in complying with treaty provisions. However, compliance attorney Hoban and others expressed concern at the time that the language could result in federal agencies viewing products produced from marijuana and hemp as illegal.

The rule was set to take effect Friday — the same day Hoban filed suit in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in San Francisco.

Hoban’s petition seeks a judicial review of the final rule on the basis that the action was inconsistent with the law — including the U.S. Controlled Substances Act and the Agricultural Act of 2014, or the Farm Bill — and effectively amounts to a scheduling action.

A scheduling action, Hoban said, would need congressional approval.

According to the lawsuit:

“Additionally, the final rule creates this new drug code, indicative of being a controlled substance, for substances which are in fact not controlled pursuant to the (Controlled Substances Act),” Hoban attorneys wrote in the lawsuit. “Specifically, the final rule dictates that the mere presence of ‘cannabinoids,’ which are not controlled substances, is the determinative factor of whether a compound is a ‘marihuana extract.’

“Further, the final rule overbroadly defines ‘marihuana extract,’ without reflecting that certain portions and varieties of the genus Cannabis sativa L. are congressionally exempted from the CSA and/or are exempted from being treated as controlled substances altogether pursuant to the relevant laws, as enacted by Congress.”

Hoban said Friday that his firm also intends to file an administrative petition next week with the DEA, formally requesting the administration to rescind the definition.

“(The new rule) certainly has caused quite a chill in the marketplace over the last three or four weeks,” Hoban said, adding that he’s heard from producers who have had trouble keeping their products on e-commerce or retailer platforms. “The number of calls we get on a daily basis, you couldn’t even quantify. … That is indicative to me of an environment where people are scared, they’re nervous.”

Hoban said he does not expect a spike in enforcement — especially as long as spending bill provisions stay in place — but he encouraged producers to maintain strict processes and to conduct an audit of their businesses to ensure that they are in compliance with state and federal regulations.

DEA spokesman Russ Baer said he could not comment on a petition that he has not yet seen.

Earlier Friday, Baer addressed the agency’s positions on CBDs, marijuana and hemp extracts in an e-mail:

CBD oil and other extracts derived from cannabis (which includes hemp) have been and will continue to be Schedule I controlled substances, unless and until they are determined to have a current accepted medical use. We need conclusive scientific evidence to make these determinations and the lack of evidence regarding the efficacy of cannabis is impressive. To handle any controlled substance, an entity or individual must be a DEA registrant to be authorized to conduct research with the particular controlled substance.

Under U.S. law (the CSA), the definition of marijuana includes all parts the cannabis plant that are the source of cannabinoids. The CSA definition of marijuana also includes “every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation” of such parts of the cannabis plant – and CBD produced from the cannabis plant clearly falls within this category. Thus, CBD, being a derivative of marijuana, is marijuana under U.S. law (and hemp is marijuana). Accordingly, because marijuana is a schedule I controlled substance under the CSA (as set forth in 21 U.S.C. § 812(c), Schedule I(c)(10)), CBD is a schedule I controlled substance under the CSA.

And as for hemp, specifically:

The Farm Bill did not remove industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances and, with certain limited exceptions, the requirements of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the CSA continue to apply to industrial hemp-related activities, nor did it change the requirements of the CSA that apply to the manufacture, distribution, and dispensing of drug products containing controlled substances.

DEA cannot provide an exhaustive list of “hemp” products that are exempted from control. Nonetheless, in order to provide clarity to your question, the following are some of the more common “hemp” products that are exempted (non-controlled), provided they are not used, or intended for use, for human consumption: paper, rope, and clothing made from fiber derived from cannabis stalks, industrial solvents made with oil from cannabis seeds, and bird seed containing sterilized cannabis seed mixed with seeds from other plants (or other ingredients not derived from the cannabis plant). Personal care products (such as lotions and shampoos) made with oil from cannabis seeds are also generally exempted.

Baer previously said that the new rule on extracts does not change the DEA’s enforcement priorities.

John Hudak, deputy director of the Center for Effective Public Management and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, said earlier this week that the extracts rule was not a change in policy but rather “a clarification for an industry that for a long time has misinterpreted policy.”

The biggest challenge is that marijuana laws have become a “telephone game” in which rumors, guesses or ideas are translated from one person to another to the point where they’re viewed as facts, he said.

As Baer stated Friday: “DEA has consistently opined that marijuana and its constituent parts or derivatives, including CBD and hemp, are Schedule I controlled substances – so these determinations are deeply rooted in the CSA and not new.”

And that was the case with extracts.

Products such as CBD oil were regarded as not subject to the same control requirements as marijuana and extracts could cross state lines and international waters without issue.

“The government was aware of this and issued (the final rule notice),” Hudak said, adding that officials effectively conveyed, “‘Listen, you have misinterpreted our laws regarding CBD and you have one month to become compliant.”

 

GMO Apples to Hit Shelves in Midwest Soon

So the Arctic apple will soon be on the shelves. This is the apple that won’t brown when you’ve sliced it. Potential effects on consumers? Who knows! Maybe it will even out tan lines, or cause dark skin to lighten, or just give you cancer or tumors or mess with your hormone levels. No one knows…and the “food police” do not care. They do however care if you want to buy raw milk across state lines. Then you’re engaged a criminal activity.

I don’t know if Trump will be helpful in the fight against GMO’s. He may be helpful on general food freedom issues, but my sense is that we are going to need to really work on his administration for right action on GMO’s.

Here is an article on this apple. Let people know it will be out there, please:

First GMO apple slices to go on sale in Midwest

A small amount of genetically modified sliced apples will go on sale in 10 Midwest stores this February and March.

SUMMERLAND, B.C. — The first genetically modified apples to be sold in the U.S. will debut in select Midwestern stores next month.

A small amount of Arctic brand sliced and packaged Golden Delicious, produced by Okanagan Specialty Fruits of Summerland, B.C., will be in 10 stores this February and March, said Neal Carter, the company’s founder and president. He would not identify the retailers, saying that’s up to them.

“We’re very optimistic with respect to this product because people love it at trade shows,” Carter said. “It’s a great product and the eating quality is excellent.”

Carter reduced the enzyme polyphenol oxidase to prevent browning when apples are sliced, bitten or bruised. The apples match the industry norm of not browning for three weeks after slicing but without using flavor-altering, chemical additives that the rest of the fresh-sliced apple industry uses.

Golden Delicious, Granny Smith and Fuji varieties have been approved by the USDA and Canada. An Arctic Gala could be approved in 2018. Only Goldens and Granny Smiths have been planted long enough to produce fruit in commercial quantities by next fall.

Midwestern retailers were chosen for the first sales this winter because they seemed like a good fit demographically and in presence and size, Carter said.

Asked if Midwest consumers may be more accepting of genetically modified apples than those on the East or West coasts, Carter said consumer research didn’t indicate that and that it wasn’t a consideration.

“We don’t want to skew our test marketing results by choosing stores that may be more friendly to genetic engineering,” he said.

About 500, 40-pound boxes of sliced apples will be sold in grab-and-go pouch bags, he said. The company expects to offer 6,000 boxes of apple slices from the 2017 fall crop.

A QR computer scan code on the packaging enables consumers to get information, including that the apple slices are genetically modified, but nothing directly on the packing identifies it. Okanagan Specialty Fruits will adhere to the new genetically engineered foods labeling act but it’s not clear what that requires, Carter said.

“We are selling it under the Arctic brand and we’ve had a lot of press and attention, so I assume most people will know what it is,” he said.

The company has reworked its logo, making a snowflake inside an apple outline more visible.

The first commercial test marketing will provide the company with consumer preferences on packaging and price and other information including purchase motivations. Survey data will be used to help the company decide its fall 2017 commercial launch strategy.

The company has orchards in British Columbia and 85,000 trees at an undisclosed location in Washington state. More than 300,000 trees will be planted this spring and 500,000 are being budded for planting in 2018. Those numbers may increase, as the company wants enough volume to compete nationally in the sliced apple business, Carter said.

The goal is 800 to 1,000 acres planted in the Northwest and nearly the same acreage in the eastern U.S. in addition to 600 to 800 acres in Canada by 2021, he has said. It will be a mix of company orchards and contract growers.

While supportive of the science, the Washington apple industry opposed approval of GMO apples because it believes negative public perception could damage apple sales. While expressing concerns about market disruption before USDA approval, the U.S. Apple Association is now neutral and stresses that all apples are safe, healthy and nutritious.
