Monsanto is being sued over its new herbicide, created for its Dicamba-resistant seeds. Spraying of the weed killer resulted in the poison drifting to neighboring fields and killing natural crops that are not genetically modified to resist Dicamba. Farmers in 25 states submitted more than 2,700 claims to state agricultural agencies against Dicamba for destroying 3.6 million acres of soybeans.
Monsanto thought they had developed an amazing scheme to corner the Midwest farming market when they developed new genetically engineered seeds that were resistant to their new herbicide called dicamba. The resistance of Monsanto’s new magical seed crops to dicamba meant that the herbicide could be sprayed liberally by farmers to eradicate weeds and boost yields.
Alas, as we pointed out last week (see: Meet Monsanto’s Other Herbicide Problem…), a small problem emerged when spray drifts from those liberal herbicide applications began to wipe out the crops of neighboring farmers who didn’t plant Monsanto’s dicamba-resistant seeds.
Now, as the Wall Street Journal points out today, after allegedly wiping out millions of acres of farm ground across the Midwest, Monsanto once again finds itself in a familiar spot: the courtroom.
Monsanto’s new version of the herbicide called dicamba is part of a more than $1 billion investment that pairs it with new genetically engineered seeds that are resistant to the spray. But some farmers say their nonresistant crops suffered after neighbors’ dicamba drifted onto their land.
The agricultural giant in October sued the Arkansas State Plant Board following the board’s decision to bar Monsanto’s new herbicide and propose tougher restrictions on similar weed killers ahead of the 2018 growing season. Monsanto claims its herbicide is being held to an unfair standard.
Arkansas has been a flashpoint in the dispute: About 900,000 acres of crops were reported damaged there, more than in any other state.
About 300 farmers, crop scientists and other attendees gathered in Little Rock on Wednesday for a hearing on Arkansas’s proposed stiffer dicamba controls, which Monsanto and some farmers are fighting. The proposed restrictions are subject to the approval of a subcommittee of state legislators.
George Nader has now been indicted on multiple charges of importing child pornography into the US in 2018. FBI agents found dozens of child-porn videos on Nader’s phones, with some depicting children as young as 3 years old.

Congressman wants to know if the US military ever experimented with using ticks and other insects as carriers of biological weapons, such as Lyme disease. Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases are spreading rapidly in the US with 300,000 new cases each year.
Judicial Watch is working to clean up dirty voter rolls to reduce voter fraud in the 2020 election. Los Angeles County, with more than 10 million residents, has more voter registrations than it has citizens old enough to register.
CNN has been praising Antifa for several years and even made a documentary that promotes the organization. Gabriel Nadales joined Antifa ten years ago when he was 16. He says it has become increasingly more violent and that college professors are teaching Antifa’s philosophy in the classroom.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
Ten Days at Jekyll Island, a novel by Patrea Patrick, tells the true story of a secret meeting held in November of 1910 on a privately owned resort island, the outcome of which drastically changed the world. It was at this meeting that a banking cartel was forged; a cartel that, three years later, would be issued a government charter to do business as The United States Federal Reserve System. You will discover why secrecy was essential. Based on historical documentation from The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. (More)
Okanagan, a Canadian company, will begin selling ‘Arctic’ GMO apples that are genetically engineered to resist browning. The company has Arctic versions of Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and Fuji apples, and expects to add more. The only way customers can detect the GMO apples is to scan the product code (not many customers carry around a scanner) or to rely on stores to state they are GMO apples – which most stores have no intention of doing.
Court documents reveal deep roots of corruption and collusion between Monsanto and the EPA. The EPA declared that Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer was safe without conducting tests on it. It relied solely on Monsanto research. […] Monsanto’s lead toxicologist, in her deposition to the court, admitted that the company did not run studies to see if there is a link to cancer. The EPA’s Jesse Rowland of the agency’s Cancer Assessment Review Committee even tried to kill cancer research conducted by the World Health Organization that indicated Roundup was carcinogenic.
Biotech giant, Monsanto, is accused of hiring, through third parties, an ‘army’ of Internet trolls to counter negative online comments, while citing positive ‘ghost-written’ pseudo-scientific reports that downplay the risks of GMO foods and Roundup Ready pesticide. In San Francisco, 50 lawsuits have been filed against Monsanto.
