March 2013: My 1st Blog-a-versary!
|Kicking it off with Ian Crane!|
I've got an awesome lineup this month. Ian Crane, an expert lecturer on New World Order, Big Pharma, Big Agri, and so many other topics, is my guest this week!!!! Jeff Bowles, bestselling health series author, and I are writing a nonfiction book on the conspiracy behind the pharmaceutical industry. My research quickly led me to Ian. I listened to Ian's lecture series on Youtube and was blown away! I already knew our health and freedom were compromised, but Ian was a treasure trove of information. Out of the blue, I asked him if I could interview him for my book and blog, and he agreed. He was beyond knowledgeable, charming, friendly, and unpretentious. I'll share some of the highlights.
Why/how did you get involved in the lecture circuit about New World Order?
I used to work as an oil executive, and then started questioning politics after a trip to Kuwait in '91. I reeducated myself. Years later, I gave up the corporate world, studied Mayan culture, and suspected something was brewing. 911 followed. After seven months of collecting 911 information, I knew we were being misrepresented. In 2006 I became aware of Codex Alimentarius. (The Codex is a food/drug code enforced by the World Trade Organization-many believe this is a large piece of the puzzle of globalizaton/one world government/New World Order)
Is the U.S. part of the Codex?
No, so far they currently are protected by DSHEA '94, the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act. But there are ties.
Why do you think the Codex is a bad thing?
Many reasons that all point to New World Order. For one, natural health products have to be 'approved' before able to sell, and they are not potent enough for the consumer to notice a health difference. Eventually, doctors will control all natural health supplements. The way the Codex works is by gradually restricting food and drug laws. If they get their way, soon it will be illegal to grow your own food. They will control it. As Henry Kissinger once said, ""Who controls the food supply controls the people."
What is a GMO?
Genetically Modified Organism. Big-Agri uses them for enhanced crops. Many believe they are unsafe for the consumer. They are not required to be put on the label of food products. Giants like Monsanto get their seeds patented and then sell them around the world.
What about organic foods?
Depends who is defining the word organic. The U.S. has very low food standards compared to Europe. Organic food only has to be 90% organic, whereas in Europe organic foods are almost 100% with a .17% margin of non-organic allowed for the product still to be considered organic. Many feel food from the U.S. is contaminated. For example, the EU won't buy beef from the U.S. because of all the growth hormones. They pay an enormous fine for their refusal. When I used to work in Houston, many people were very overweight. Beef was a huge part of their main diet. Think about it-you pump up a cow so that it gets really fat, enabling you to sell more meat. What do you think happens to those who eat it? The EU isn't the only one protesting U.S. beef. South Korea doesn't want it either. The World Trade Organization tried to force them to import it.
Are GMOs patented? Can the seeds of the GMOs be sold?
Oh yes, all the time. Let me give you some of the many examples of this. During the Iraqi invasion that followed 911, First Ambassador Paul Bremner hoisted their new constitution that was drafted by both the U.S. and the U.K. In Article 81 it states that Iraqi farmers are prohibited from saving the seeds of their farms. They have to buy them from Monsanto. The cotton farmers in India are the saddest story. Monsanto wanted to sell them seeds, but they had no money. A deal was struck and Monsanto agreed that they could pay them back with the money they made from their new crops. When the seeds didn't work and the crops failed, debt remained. No refund or debt forgiveness. In the Indian culture, if one owes a debt that can never be paid, like these cotton farmers, one could kill himself as a way to absolve his family from a money burden. To date, over 100,000 suicides are a result of the Monsanto GMO deal. One Indian farmer kills himself every thirty minutes.
What do you think of EU's healthcare?
In the U.K. it's excellent in terms of emergencies. Everything is free, no waiting. But things that are non-life-threatening can take years like a hip replacement, 2-4 years. One can always go private, but that costs.
What do you think about Ritalin and ADD/ADHD?
Five years ago fifty million people took Ritalin and now one hundred million are being prescribed. John Harris, a U.K. professor in bio-ethics, believes that ritalin should be freely available for all students. Seems that no one is much concerned about the harm that it has on the brain. Anger gets pent up as a side effect. Asparthame contributes to ADD.
What do you think of the FDA? Are they in on the Codex? Or are they protecting Americans from harmful drugs?
Big Pharma's employees sit on the committees, approve their own drugs, recommend them to doctors-revolving door policy.
