Monsanto Funded Anti-GMO Labeling Campaign Gets Away with Impersonating Govt. Agencies

Anthony Gucciardi
Activist Post

Misuse of a United States government seal can lead to a $250,000 fine, twenty years in prison, and three years of supervised release — unless you’re a campaign organization funded by major corporations like Monsanto. In a move completely ignored by the mainstream media (many of which have financial ties to such corporations), the anti-GMO labeling No on 37 Committee paid for and disseminated a physical piece of direct mail that not only entirely misused the FDA logo but even sported a fabricated quote.

A quote that even the FDA has stated on record that was never stated. That is because it would actually be illegal to do so. You see, federal agencies cannot take a stance on Proposition 37, which means that the Monsanto-funded "No" on 37 campaign literally created the quote and FDA support out of thin air. In other words, the organization leaders blatantly violated 8 U.S.C. §§ 506 and 1017 by misusing the FDA seal and writing a quote out of thin air to support their political campaign to keep Monsanto rolling in the billions.


So are the creators of this deceptive campaign piece going to jail or facing major fines for breaking the law?


You would think so, especially given that the offense is actually a felony. As it turns out, however, No on 37 may actually get away without any real penalty. And even if they are on the receiving end of any repercussions, it will certainly be after the voting takes place on Prop 37 (November 6th). Ultimately, this means that Monsanto and "No" on Prop 37 will completely get away with their impersonation of a federal government agency without a scratch.

And most of the voters won’t know a thing.

Citizens Thrown Into Jail, Fined for Govt. Impersonation while No on 37 Gets Away

Once again, major corporations are exempt from the laws that heavily apply to the average citizen. One Idaho woman found out in 2011 that misuse of government seals really can land you in jail when you don’t have billions of dollars. Found to be illegally using a phony government seal (sound familiar?), one Caldwell, Idaho woman now faces up to 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release — the sentence that applies to the average citizen.

Perhaps this is related to the fact that Monsanto owns most if not all United States diplomats. Or perhaps it has to do with the fact that the United States government is so in bed with Monsanto that it has threatened ‘military-style’ trade wars who do not accept Monsanto’s GMOs (see previous link).

But you won’t see this in the mainstream media, or even some ‘alternative’ media outlets that receives millions in funding from the same corporations that fight against GMO labeling. And that is why No on 37 is currently climbing in the polls. With pure deception, lies, and confusion, No on 37 is getting away with the very same actions that land the average citizen in jail.

Love the site, but why do you have a YES on Prop. 31 ad. in the middle of this story? Prop. 31 is Agenda 21 on steroids.

The power of a lie is in proportion to the satisfaction given by believing the unbelievable.
Agenda 21 is a proven communist muslim fake scientist hippie statement from 20 years ago. As such, it is the greatest threat since the idea that
pollution should be regulated.

Agenda 21
Duck and cover

Is it not possible for a citizen to initiate a criminal action against perpetrator in the US, in the event that the state fails or declines to do so?

GMO labels, truth in labeling and understanding the food we eat could save a life.
Vote yes on No 37.

I am a Registered Nurse. It is important for people to know the truth about GMO and the need for honest labeling. The food we put into our bodies should not be treated as part of a political gain/game. It is known that "we are what we eat" but if don't know what we are eating, how can we prevent or effectively treat any illness?

Those who profit from the GMO food, should be shamed into telling the truth. In 1994, 1 in 11 people had cancer and the medical profession was horrified. Now, 1 out of 2 and 1 out 3 women and men have cancer in this country. Breast cancer has increased to 1 out of 4. Two major changes since 1994: Bio-tech GMO crops and animals, and factory farming. The US government's partners Monsanto, Dow, Archer Daniels, Factory Farms and others, cannot hide the truth about the drastic increase in the statistical data and other horrifying data. These corporations need to stop feeding this nation lies and paying people like Henry Miller (see below) to front them. As a Registered Nurse, I find this on-going unethical conduct very, very sad.

I would ask the reader, the next time you are with friends, ask yourself, "How many have or have had cancer? How many have had a heart attack(example of labeling: do you know about the side effects of the drug Paylean injected into the factory animals, pork?) How many friends or family have had their colon or a chunk of it removed?(example of labeling: Do you know about the many countries rejecting our GMO products because their independent studies show stark differences/cause and effect?) How many friends have Alzheimer? How many are Diabetic? How many drugs would be piled onto the table if each person dumped a prescription? It is shocking!

We are what we eat. My husband has returned to work after many years of being in an out of a wheelchair - once I changes to organic foods and understood what we were putting into our bodies - cause and effect. He is alive because of the over 5000 research articles, books and medical journals we studied to find, and back the answers. How simple it would have been had the label told the truth! Truth in labeling and understanding that truth could save lives. Isn't a life worth at least truth?

I am not surprised that "The anti-GMO labeling No on 37 Committee paid for and disseminated a physical piece of direct mail that not only entirely misused the FDA logo but even sported a fabricated quote." For those in doubt of the level of deception by Big Food and the US partners or Monsanto, Dow, Archer Daniels and other, at least please read about Henry Miller who is one of the paid mouth pieces, and an example of many of the people hired by the anti-gmo-labeling committee. There are many sites who will also let each of you know the biography of many of the people being paid lots of cash to sell you on slanted or fabricated facts. What does the industry fear and what do they have to hide that requires the level of money spent by them in their campaign?

GMO labels and truth in labeling could save a life. Vote yes on No 37.
