Chemical warfare: the State of Hawaii vs. the people
by Jon Rappoport
November 25, 2014
Barry Kurren is the federal judge overseeing Monsanto’s lawsuit against the county of Maui.
Monsanto sued, after the people of Maui dared to say no. After they voted to stop new Monsanto/Dow GMO development on the Island.
This is the same Judge Barry Kurren who ruled against the people of Kauai in a similar case.
“A federal judge in Hawaii has struck down a local ordinance that would have restricted or regulated the use of pesticides and genetically modified crops on the island of Kauai, saying the measure was pre-empted by state law.
“United States Magistrate Judge Barry M. Kurren wrote in one of his two related decisions… ‘The court’s ruling simply recognizes that the State of Hawaii has established a comprehensive framework for addressing the application of restricted-use pesticides and the planting of G.M.O. crops, which presently precludes local regulation by the county.’”
Precludes. Local. Regulation.
Ah yes, jurisdiction. Which government entity can decide how much pesticide poison the people of Hawaii should be exposed to? Local, state, or federal?
Judge Kurren shifted the “legal problem” to the State of Hawaii, meaning the government, not the people.
Apparently, because of “jurisdiction,” the people have no right to resist the spraying of poison. This is, you see, a game in which certain chess pieces are superior to other chess pieces, and the bigger and superior ones make the decisions.
Does this give you a clue about what Judge Barry Kurren is going to do to the people of Maui?
Exactly what was and is happening on the Island of Kauai? Dr. Lorrin Pang helps to answer the question. Pang is a Maui County District Health Officer:
“It was disclosed during the class action suit of a biotech company on Kauai that 80+ chemicals are used.”
Dr. Pang is referring to pesticides sprayed on the Island of Kauai. 80.
What are their names? Unknown.
What are their chemical formulas, as revealed by independent investigators? Unknown. Because there is no independent investigation.
Who does know what’s going on? The biotech giants who are doing secret research on Kauai.
The First Hawaiian Bank, on its website (page 4 of 6), names these giants in glowing terms:
“Kauai is an ideal research laboratory for the seed corn industry…there are currently five parent seed corn operations on the island: Pioneer Hi-Bred…Syngenta, Dow Monsanto, and BASF. Dow Agrosciences recently leased 3,400 acres of former sugar land…”
And oh yes. Judge Barry Kurren’s wife, Faye, is a board member of the First Hawaiian Bank.
The giants say to the people: “We’re spraying you with chemicals. We can’t tell you what they are. It’s a secret. But don’t worry, be happy.”
I’m not a scholar when it comes to traditional Hawaiian spiritual beliefs, but I’m going to make a wild guess and say the secret spraying of chemicals on the people is not part of that tradition.
And jurisdiction issues, which come down to which government entity is going to make the people sicker… well, that’s just a cheap hustle to accommodate Monsanto and its partners.
Wait. Newsflash. Apparently, we do know something about the restricted-use pesticides (RUPs) sprayed on Kauai. From stoppoisoningparadise.org:
“Atrazine, for example, is known to cause birth defects, cancer and reproductive issues. Lorsban is known to cause impaired brain and nervous system functions in children and fetuses, even in minute amounts. Some RUPs are shown to effect brain cancer, autism, and heart and liver problems. Children are at especially high risk of illness from pesticide exposure. For these reasons, many of the RUPs used on Kauai are banned in other countries.”
[Update: More info on the restricted-use pesticides used on Kauai can be found here.]
All the upcoming court hearings in the Maui-Monsanto suit should be conducted in the following fashion:
The people of Maui, their lawyers and experts should view and take part in the proceedings from, chemically speaking, the cleanest spot that can be found on the Island.
Via Skype, they would watch Judge Kurren, the Monsanto lawyers and their experts, who would sit under heavy spraying of the Monsanto/Dow pesticides. All day long.
Just like in real life.
No coughing allowed.
After all, everybody on Monsanto’s side knows these chemicals are completely harmless. They might even be good for health. They might have a beneficial tonic effect. Who knows? They might be a cure for cancer and heart disease.
You bet. And Monsanto might be the corporate reincarnation of an ancient god, come back to save the people from…clean food and a healthy life.
I’m all for labeling GMOs—only my label would be different. It would read, in very large letters:
“This food product is from Monsanto. They fiddled and diddled with it. They made sure it was sprayed with poison. Do you want to ingest it? Are you sure? Check your head. Are you completely crazy? Suicidal? Did you know Monsanto is subjecting the people of Hawaii to chemical warfare?”
That’s a nice label. It would improve my “shopping experience.”
Dear Judge Kurren: which jurisdictional government entity would approve my label?
