The next huge GMO crime is here

It’s “genome-editing” of food crops.

The official propaganda could go several ways. One version: “We won’t be inserting foreign genes from other species into food plants anymore, as we do now in GMO crops. Instead, we’ll be tweaking and editing the genes that are already in the plants. It’s wonderful.”

Of course, this “new and improved process” can produce unintended and unpredictable effects that ripple through plant DNA. Oops.

Here is a cautionary statement from Jennifer Doudna, the co-discoverer of the latest and greatest method of gene-surgery, called CRISPR: “I guess I worry about a couple of things. I think there’s sort of the potential for unintended consequences of gene editing in people for clinical use. How would you ever do the kinds of experiments that you might want to do to ensure safety?”

The same worries would apply to gene-editing food plants—especially if no one intends to do long-term studies on the health effects of eating this food.

We’re on the cusp of a new level of GMO crime-business, and the man in charge of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), Sonny Perdue, is cheerleading from the sidelines.

Perdue says the newest gene-edited plants won’t be any different from those developed by traditional non-GMO breeding methods.

Which is like saying a missile fired from a tank is identical to an arrow shot from a bow.

Here is the brand new policy from the USDA: “Under its biotechnology regulations, USDA does not regulate or have any plans to regulate plants that could otherwise have been developed through traditional breeding techniques…This includes a set of new [gene-editing] techniques that are increasingly being used by plant breeders to produce new plant varieties that are indistinguishable from those developed through traditional breeding methods.”

Yes, indistinguishable, if you’re wearing a blindfold and wandering around in a pitch-black lab.

In other words, the bureaucrats are at it again, subverting facts and viewing corporate interests as prime, while people’s interests are of no importance.

No regulation, no studies on genome-edited crops to determine health effects on humans, just open the door wide.

Claire Robinson, the relentless and sharp publisher of, goes for the throat:

“If by some miracle the USDA should turn out to be correct when it claims that genome-edited plants are indistinguishable from naturally bred plants, then the whole genome-editing commercial venture is over. That’s because the driving force behind all genetic engineering of plants, including genome editing, is patents. And to get a patent on a genome-edited plant you have to show that it is a man-made invention that is completely different from anything that you might find in nature.”

“Therefore the GMO industry is telling the public and regulators that genome-edited plants are indistinguishable from naturally bred plants, and yet at the same time it is telling patent offices that genome-edited plants are completely different from naturally bred plants.”

“Both claims cannot be true. So one is a lie. There are no prizes for guessing which one.”

Boom. Bang.

To grasp this situation at ground level, imagine a bevy of food police came into your house and said: “We’re going to take all the food out of your refrigerator, we’re going to fool around with the genes, not really knowing what changes are occurring as we cut and paste, having no idea how this will affect your health, and then we’ll come back and put the gene-edited food in the fridge. Don’t worry, be happy.”

If this new generation of edited food is accepted by a sleeping public, there is yet another step coming on the road to full food control. We’ve seen hints of it already. The companies doing the gene-editing will claim they’ve got varieties of food crops that don’t need pesticides, because the DNA-editing protects the plants from pests and weeds. With blasts of PR, the companies will say these crops should have the status and label, ORGANIC.

There will eventually be a big push in that direction. An organic apple grown in an orchard where the farmer has taken years to clean up the soil and institute natural pest/weed control—that organic apple will be considered identical to an apple whose genes were tweaked and re-tweaked with gene-editing.

The USDA will call these two apples “indistinguishable” from each other.

How do you like them apples?

The current director of the USDA, Sonny Perdue, as Claire Robinson points out, “…is a fitting candidate to utter unscientific talking points that only benefit the GMO industry. The former governor of Georgia, he was named 2009 Governor of the Year by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization and counts Monsanto and Coca-Cola among his corporate campaign donors. His nomination [to the USDA] was praised by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), that multi-billion-dollar lobbying group that represents Monsanto, Dow, Dupont, Coca-Cola, General Mills and that fought against transparent GMO labelling.”

“Perdue helped the giant chicken-producing factory farm business expand its Georgia operations by $155 million. A former fertilizer salesman, Perdue at one time owned Houston Fertilizer and Grain, which morphed into AGrowStar, a grain business with operations across Georgia and South Carolina. His supporters cite his business operations as proof that he’s qualified to lead the USDA.”

The business of America is business.

I have a suggestion for Sonny Perdue. When people start getting sick from eating the new gene-edited food, he can say: “Look, there are always unintended effects in science. But I’ve been assured we can solve this problem. We’ll adjust the genes of PEOPLE so they can eat the new food without harm. I was talking to execs at Monsanto the other day, and they told me it’ll be a slam dunk. A snip here, a snip there, and everything will be fine.”

A final note for now. The new gene-editing technology features a method called CRISPR. It is very cheap and very available to anyone with a simple lab. Many small start-up companies are getting in on the action. As we speak, someone could already be trying out this UNPREDICTABLE gene-surgery in, say, a small experimental grape vineyard or an orange grove or an artisan beer manufacturing operation. It’s the Wild West of genetic manipulation.

If the USDA keeps looking the other way, pretty soon food growing will morph into untold numbers of Frankenstein variations that make today’s GMO crops seem like the purest of the pure.

Genie out of the bottle, lid of Pandora’s Box wide open.

    The thing is, if people start getting sick from this “edited” food, the companies will use the same excuse as the vaccine companies – prove it, they’ll say. The medical industry is “in on” this farce, so they’re not about to “prove” anything, one way or the other.

    And suddenly, we’re screwed. No smile, no foreplay – just screwed.

    Humans grow plants to get food. Insects eat the food. Humans develop pesticides to kill the insects. 99.9% of the insects die from the pesticides. The insects that didn’t die, breed and the next generation are not as affected by the pesticides so now humans need to add more pesticides to ensure that the insects don’t eat the food. This cycle continues and soon the amount of pesticides is so great that humans start dying from the pesticides. Humans develop gene editing. Many unintended (one would hope) consequences will occur. Humans need new technologies to handle these. Micro-robots will be introduced. These kill the weeds (undesired plants) and insects without chemicals. The micro-robots wander off and kill the forests. Each technology has a benefit and a cost. The profits are privatized and the losses are socialized. This is the heart of most of our problems.

    That is a really great point, either they are indistinguishable in which case, they are natural and non-patentable, or they are unique and unnatural and thus patentable.

    Guess i better find out how to stockpile heirloom seeds. (create a seed vault)

    I am not as worried about the genetic roulette (because something must happen to allow the spliced genes to incorporate into your genetic has to get inside your sells and the cell membrane channels which would block it)
    i am more worried about the massive amount of GLYPHOSATE (which is a descaler) sprayed on the crops.

    The other thing i wonder about…the WHEAT. I know they have had Monsanto GM wheat escape the testing area, but that does not explain so many people getting sick from eating wheat. (some of us have always had a problem with it since childhood thanks to vaccination and antibiotic shots resulting in food allergies and intolerances )

    There are two things causing widespread wheat illness i think.
    First is the spraying of insecticides and rat poison, and antifungals on wheat in the granaries…the other is the spraying of glyphosate on the wheat to rapidly desiccate it.

    f course then there are other factors like the flouride in the water which disrupts the gut lining, as well as many of the chemical ingredients in processed foods.

    Altogether the food industry is creating a bumper crop of patients.

      in vivo, spliced with bartonella and shewanella. already done.

    • koki lupo says:

      Problem I see is, Bt Cry proteins (or their functional analogs), whether from crisper, or some dang bug, are not mean to be in the cells of the corn, soy, and rice we eat!. How’s this great disconnect happening, across the board, with citizens and scientists? Does the increased prevalence of hordes of chronic diseases, and their only partial treatment with oodles of toxic pills, as advertised, not suggest the obvious? Nobody ever talked about probiotics before bt gmo’s entered the food supply. That was before we all started eating an insecticide embedded into our food products. Yes, and then coated with a nice layer of glyphosphate. Nobody can do anything about the bartonella splice, but our food choices are another story.

  10. Two things:

    – Jennifer Doudna quote is about gene editing people, where you have one shot to make it a success and cannot simply remove background mutations through generations of backcrossing. The mount of transformed plants that did not get selected with proper gene-editing would be a holocaust if they were people. Furthermore, the CRISPR paper showing off-targeting was just retracted by the authors themselves.

    – No one is telling the regulators one thing and the patent office another. A natural mutated variety that is novel has just as many rights to variety protection as gene-edited ones.

  11. Reblogged this on Kensho Homestead and commented:
    If the processes were safe, they wouldn’t need all the double-speak.

    “Therefore the GMO industry is telling the public and regulators that genome-edited plants are indistinguishable from naturally bred plants, and yet at the same time it is telling patent offices that genome-edited plants are completely different from naturally bred plants.”

  12. From Quebec says:

    And what about the Chemtrails elevated levels of aluminum, barium, and strontium who are falling on food plants and in our waters?

    Boy, are we in trouble my friends!

  13. procomptor says:

    Great article that needs to be viewed and understood by all. These jerks who work for the Monsanto group including members of the USDA and other Federal agencies know that once this genetic raping of plants and other gets its foot into the acceptance door then it is here to stay. Much like radiation poisoning, by the time folks start dropping dead from exposure it’s too late to stop global elite groups behind this mess…..mike

  14. Elton D. Peterson says:

    Get rid of all these bastards.

  15. bleak's-blog says:

    This may be unrelated but the new FDA leader seems more like a virus/blood/DNA freak and not someone who should be in charge of food regulations. Although it is clear she is not a stupid person by any stretch, her background is blood sampling, testing and virus/contagious diseases (whether real or faked).

    The very agency she now leads scrutinized her company, Theranos, in 2015. So I guess that is one way to co-opt the regulators and remove obstacles.

    It says she always wears a black turtleneck. As Jon has been saying, use your imagination.

    • sundancer55 says:

      I thought Trump was on the side of “the people”? Obviously not. Sonny Perdue and now this young girl??

      I still say the food and drug administration should be done away with, but if they aren’t going to do that the least they could do is separate the food part from the drug part. Since the “powers that be” refuse to recognize REAL food as also being medicine, they have no business being in control of both entities. But that’s just me . . .

  16. Robert Klinck says:

    “…if no one intends to do long-term studies on the health effects of eating this food….” In this finance-dominated world, in which the acquisition of money from activity is deemed the ultimate ethic, you can’t be assured of the objectivity of research in any field. Mercenarism increasingly penetrates all institutions, subverting moralities based on human relationships and rendering the position of the planning-mad Money Creators virtually unassailable.
