L’atlantisme de l’Union européenne n’est plus à démontrer tant la classe politique est plus zélée à protéger les intérêts de Washington que ceux des citoyens européens dont ils sont (même s’ils ne s’en souviennent plus) les représentants.
Voilà une situation (avec l’espionnage de masse de la NSA, et sa position vis-à-vis de l’Ukraine) qui en dit long sur la mise en place d’un accord de libre échange entre les USA et l’Union européenne où l’avis des peuples d’Europe, qui pourrait se faire via un réferendum, est complètement évacué.
La Commission européenne a proposé mercredi d’interdire le clonage animal à but alimentaire dans l’Union européenne. Mais elle a renoncé à bannir la vente de viande ou de lait des descendants des animaux clonés pour ne pas indisposer ses partenaires commerciaux, notamment américains.
« Cela ne veut pas dire que nous n’en avons pas parlé pendant la réunion » de la Commission. « Nous avons discuté de toutes les possibilités, y compris de l’étiquetage de la viande de bovins descendants d’animaux clones, et jugé qu’il fallait procéder à une analyse approfondie », a annoncé le commissaire européen chargé de la Santé, Tonio Borg, au cours d’une conférence de presse.
Au sein de l’Union européenne, le clonage animal à but alimentaire ne se pratique qu’au Danemark. La viande de clones ne se mange pas en raison du prix très élevé de ces spécimens. Mais leurs embryons et semences sont commercialisés et exportés, et leurs descendants sont élevés en particulier aux Etats-Unis, en Argentine, au Brésil et en Uruguay.
L’UE importe chaque année entre 300 000 et 500 000 tonnes de viande bovine des États-Unis et d’Argentine, pays qui ont autorisé le clonage à des fins commerciales, mais n’ont aucun système de traçabilité.
La Commission, le Parlement européen et les gouvernements avaient échoué une première fois, en 2011, à s’entendre sur un encadrement, après trois ans de négociations infructueuses. Les Etats jugeaient exagérées les exigences de traçabilité des eurodéputés.
Le Parlement demandait une traçabilité très poussée pour informer les consommateurs de toute trace de viande issue de bête clonée, en remontant à plusieurs générations.
Cela aurait imposé aux États-Unis et à l’Argentine de mener des contrôles qu’ils ne veulent pas réaliser. L’Union européenne aurait été obligée de bloquer les importations, au risque d’une nouvelle guerre commerciale similaire à celle provoquée jadis par l’interdiction du boeuf aux hormones américain.
Un accord censé dynamiser la croissance économique
Les négociations sur le futur “partenariat transatlantique sur le commerce et l’investissement” (PTCI) entre l’UE, le Canada et les États-Unis sont ouvertes depuis cet été. L’objectif de cet accord? Dynamiser la croissance économique en libéralisant les échanges (exportations, investissements, etc.) entre les deux plus grands marchés du monde.
Mais attention à ne pas se laisser avoir par ce charmant tableau, car le PTCI constitue en réalité une sérieuse menace pour l’environnement et la sécurité sanitaire et alimentaire des européens. C’est d’ailleurs ce qu’est venu confirmer un récent rapport commandité par le Parlement européen, qui met en garde contre les conséquences que cet éventuel accord pourrait avoir.
L’harmonisation des réglementations: une menace environnementale, sanitaire et alimentaire
Ce partenariat cache en réalité des risques considérables pour notre souveraineté écologique, sanitaire et alimentaire: la convergence des normes européennes, canadiennes et américaines, prévue par l’accord, menace les garanties que le droit de l’UE et celui de ses États membres assurent aux citoyens européens.
Car il serait illusoire de croire que cette harmonisation se fera par le haut, et ce sont bien nos normes sanitaires et environnementales, encore très insuffisantes mais pourtant jugées trop contraignantes outre-Atlantique, qui seront ainsi remises en cause, ce qui aura des conséquences désastreuses:
“You’d have to ask him.”
Actor Harry Lennix reacted coyly to claims by Chicago radio host Eric ‘Mancow’ Muller that he trained Barack Obama to copy his mannerisms, denying the story as “hearsay,” yet cryptically adding, “you’d have to ask him.”
As we reported last week, Muller told the Alex Jones Show that Lennix – star of TV’s The Blacklist – reacted to seeing a cut out of Obama in Muller’s studio by proclaiming, “He mimicked me, he followed me for years, and they wanted me to train him and teach him how to act….like a an educated south side African-American.” Lennix added that he thought Obama was “very stupid” and had “been taught to act like this.”
Mancow’s producer Nathan also confirmed that he saw the conversation take place.
After an event at which Lennix appeared, a blogger asked the actor if the claims were true.
“Those are not my words,” said Lennix, who admitted he knew of the controversy, labeling the matter “hearsay.”
However, when asked, “Did Obama train to be like you or is that not true?,” Lennix coyly responded, “You’d have to ask him.”
“I knew him a long time….I have no idea what he did,” added Lennix, who was obviously being guarded with his words.
“I don’t like Barack Obama or his policies but I never said I trained him or anything of the kind,” added Lennix, who said he heard of the controversy surrounding the interview but not the interview itself.
Whereas Lennix was reportedly more candid with Muller – calling Obama a “rat bastard” – in the clip above he admits only to not being a supporter of the president.
Lennix’s body language and demeanor is remarkably similar to Barack Obama’s, which is why many have called for Lennix to play the president in a biopic. The actor has also been pictured with Obama in numerous photos.
However, the fact that Lennix reportedly turned down such a role suggests that he is aware of the irony of playing a character who mimics his own behavior – meaning Lennix would essentially be playing himself.
Watch the original interview with ‘Mancow’ Muller below, during which he outlines what Lennix reportedly told him about training Obama to act presidential.
Food pantry organizers “unable to plug the hole”
The head of the Pennsylvania’s largest food bank has warned that demand for groceries following a $5 billion dollar cut in the food stamp program cannot be met.
Joe Arthur of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank “says the donor network for the food banks is already stretched too thin to quickly expand,” according to an Associated Press report.
From November 1st, $5 billion was wiped off the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) as a result of a planned stimulus withdrawal. Almost 50 million Americans who are supported by the program face an average loss of $36 dollars a month, which is a significant amount for those living near the poverty line.
Food pantry organizers will be “unable to plug the hole being left by a reduction in federal funding for food stamps,” which will leave families of four in Pennsylvania facing the prospect of 20 fewer meals per month, according to Arthur.
The Association of Arizona Food Banks sounds a similar warning, noting that the 5 per cent cut, although appearing minor on the surface, equates to about half a week’s budget for someone whose primary source of food is SNAP.
Spokesman Brian Simpson illustrated how the massive surge in demand for food was linked to the struggling economy.
Before the 2007 recession, the five food banks in his association were handing out an average of 69,000 emergency food boxes per month. Last month, 108,300 boxes were handed out, an increase of around 80 per cent.
The true impact of the cut will really be felt in the final week of November, when food stamp recipients will begin to run out of benefits.
According to Margaret Purvis, the CEO of the largest food bank in America, members of her Food Bank for New York City organization, are “panicking” over the decrease in benefits, fearing a rush of hungry Americans.
“We’re telling everyone to make sure that you are prepared for longer lines,” Purvis told NBC News.
Her comments were echoed by Jim Weill, president of the Food Research and Action Center, who stated, “It’s going to send people into a charitable system that’s already overwhelmed and screaming for help itself.”
Purvis also invoked the threat of riots caused by millions of Americans going hungry when she told Salon.com, “If you look across the world, riots always begin typically the same way: when people cannot afford to eat food.”
This has prompted some to speculate that the Department of Homeland Security is gearing up for potential unrest with its recent hiring of security guards to protect government buildings in New York, as well as the purchase of half a million dollars worth of fully automatic pepper spray launchers and projectiles that are designed to be used during riot control situations.

The US food stamp system is to be reduced by $5 billion starting in November. The average benefit will shrink and the overall number of people receiving it will diminish by millions. The CEO of America’s largest food bank says the cuts will end in riots.
“Riots always begin typically the same way: when people cannot afford to eat food,” Margaret Purvis, president and CEO of the Food bank for New York City, told online news and entertainment site Salon.com
She added that families face the “daunting” prospect of losing a whole week’s worth of food every month.
Currently, the program costs about $80 billion per year and provides food aid nearly 15 per cent of all US households – over 45 million people.
A big automatic cut is expected on November 1, taking $5 billion from federal food-stamp spending over 2014. The benefit is set to shrink by 5 per cent.
One of the reasons for the reduction is the temporary expansion of the food-stamp program in 2009 as part of the Recovery Act.
Thus, the maximum monthly benefit for a household of four will drop by $36 a month, by $29 for a family of three, and by $20 for two people, according to a report published by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
That bill spent $45.2 billion to increase monthly benefit levels to around $133.
Now, almost 45 million people get food stamps – compared to 26.3 million, or 8.7% of the population, in 2007.
This is a very hot topic that gets taken down off the net repeatedly. You’ll soon understand why. It’s one of the most diabolical, wickedly-intended and insidiously communicated subversive influences in society.
Why haven’t we heard about it?

Here’s a good starter article on the subject and I added a collection of examples at the bottom. Wiked-pedia deleted the topic as have others, or cleverly buried the information. Yup, they control Wiki too…surprise! Not.
Sayanim – Israeli Operatives in the U.S.
Americans know that something fundamental is amiss. They sense—rightly—that they are being misled no matter which political party does the leading.
A long misinformed public lacks the tools to grasp how they are being deceived. Without those tools, Americans will continue to be frustrated at being played for the fool.
When the “con” is clearly seen, “the mark” (that’s us) will see that all roads lead to the same duplicitous source: Israel and its operatives. The secret to Israel’s force-multiplier in the U.S. is its use of agents, assets and sayanim (Hebrew for volunteers).
When Israeli-American Jonathan Pollard was arrested for spying in 1986, Tel Aviv assured us that he was not an Israeli agent but part of a “rogue” operation. That was a lie.
Only 12 years later did Tel Aviv concede that he was an Israeli spy the entire time he was stealing U.S. military secrets. That espionage—by a purported ally—damaged our national security more than any operation in U.S. history.
In short, Israel played us for the fool.
From 1981-1985, this U.S. Navy intelligence analyst provided Israel with 360 cubic feet of classified military documents on Soviet arms shipments, Pakistani nuclear weapons, Libyan air defense systems and other intelligence sought by Tel Aviv to advance its geopolitical agenda.
Agents differ from assets and sayanim. Agents possess the requisite mental state to be convicted of treason, a capital crime. Under U.S. law, that internal state is what distinguishes premeditated murder from a lesser crime such as involuntary manslaughter. Though there’s a death in either case, the legal liabilities are different—for a reason.
Intent is the factor that determines personal culpability. That distinction traces its roots to a widely shared belief in free will as a key component that distinguishes humans from animals.
Agents operate with premeditation and “extreme malice” or what the law describes as an “evil mind.” Though that describes the mental state of Jonathan Pollard, Israeli leaders assured us otherwise—another example of an evil mind as the U.S. was played for the fool. more>>

Explains a lot, doesn’t it? Yet they’re the ones who have the world on the hunt to kill off imaginary al qaeda cells. That’s usually how it works – the guilty always boldly blame and persecute the innocent, attaching their own attributes to them.
Watch for it. Age old ploy.
One of the U.S. government’s main arguments for why we are supposed to have concluded that Syrian government forces were responsible for the August chemical weapons attack in Damascus is that the rebels being armed by the U.S. whose ranks include al-Qaeda affiliated Islamic extremists didn’t have access to such weapons. But now inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) — which are in Syria disarming its stockpiles after the government under President Bashar al-Assad declared its possession of CW and agreed to allow the teams in for that purpose — are asking to also visit CW sites under that were captured by the rebels and are under their control.
