The big winners with A1, besides Monsanto and CAFOS, will be the Bar Association. I dont’ see how it won’t pass, with its wording so blatantly in favor of its passage it is ridiculous, and in violation of MO Stat 116.155(2)) and Monsanto’s sales-pitch that this is in some way gonna help the independent farmer (that Monsanto wishes to gobble up), and if you oppose it you must a liberal vegetarian in alignment with PETA and HSUS (quite the effective pitch…..I’m amazed at how many conservative farmers have bought the lie, but they tend to be too busy tending their farms in mid summer to really research what this is about.) Gotta hand it to Monsanto for technique and mastering deception.
Potentially, the way this is so vaguely worded, big ag could claim they are free from abiding any and all state regulation. At the same time, most local governing…

VIDEO: BORDER PATROL OFFICIAL POINTS GUN AT BOY SCOUT’S HEAD, CONFISCATES HIS CAMERA, INFORMED HIM HE WOULD BE ARRESTED AND FINED POSSIBLY $10,000 AND 10 YEARS IN PRISON FOR TRYING TO FILM THE INCIDENT.
About 10 days into the trip, an innocent action by one of the nearly two dozen Scouts at the Canadian border into Alaska set off a chain of events that lead to a U.S. border official pointing a gun at a scout’s head.
Boy Scout Troop 111 Leader Jim Fox spelled out what happened to him and the Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111 as four van-loads of Scouts and adult volunteers tried to drive from Canada into Alaska.
“The agent immediately confiscated his camera, informed him he would be arrested, fined possibly $10,000 and 10 years in prison,” Fox said.Fox said one of the Scouts took a picture of a border official, which spurred agents to detain everyone in that van and search them and their belongings.
Fox said he was told it is a federal offense to take a picture of a federal agent.Not wanting things to escalate, Fox said he did not complain.
Another of the Scouts was taking luggage from the top of a van to be searched when something startling happened.
“He hears a snap of a holster, turns around, and here’s this agent, both hands on a loaded pistol, pointing at the young man’s head,” Fox explained.
Fox said that had them all in fear.
Ultimately no one was hurt or arrested, and after about four hours they were allowed to continue their trip into Alaska.
When he thinks about what happened to them and the fact there are people streaming across the southern border, Fox is outraged.
Charles Vonderheid with the Mid-Iowa Council Boy Scouts of America said Troop 11 learned a valuable lesson.
“We want to make sure they follow the rules. A Scout is a good citizen. It would be a great lesson in civics for that young man and that troop,” he said.
The Scouts arrived home late Sunday from their 23-day trip.
There were 17 other Scouts and three other volunteers on the trip. As of now KCCI has not been able to make contact with any of the Scouts.
The significance of a forgotten CIA document: MKULTRA
by Jon Rappoport
July 23, 2014
This June 27, 1994, document is stored at the National Security Archive at The George Washington University.
It was written by a CIA advisory committee, and forwarded to the Presidential Committee on Human Radiation Experiments, which was preparing public hearings at the time.
The document has many interesting implications. In this article, I want to focus on two. The first point concerns the CIA mind control program, MKULTRA.
Here is a key quote:
“In the 1950s and 60s, the CIA engaged in an extensive program of human experimentation [MKULTRA], using drugs, psychological, and other means, in search of techniques to control human behavior for counterintelligence and covert action
purposes…Most of the MKULTRA records were deliberately destroyed in 1973 by the order of then DCI Richard Helms, who waived the internal CIA regulation (CSI-7O-l0) governing retirement…

One of the most influential dystopian novels ever written, 1984 has had a profound effect on the world. Since its publication in 1949 many of its concepts have entered modern day parlance. Big Brother, doublethink, thoughtcrime,Newspeak and Room 101 are all part of Orwell’s world. What’s more, as a result of the book, Orwellian is now a term to describes official deception, secret surveillance, and manipulation of the past by a totalitarian or authoritarian state. Orwell hoped that by writing 1984 he’d help stop such a state ever coming to pass. Read these thirteen quotes to decide for yourself.
“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.”
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”
“War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”
“Big Brother is Watching You.”
“Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.”
“Until they became conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.”
“The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.”
“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power.”
“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”
“Orthodoxy means not thinking–not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.”
“For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable – what then?”
“Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power”
