The Rockefeller Food Cartel
ThisDayLive ^ | 1/23/2013 | Staff

Posted on 01/26/2013 3:02:59 PM PST by PieterCasparzen

Coincidentally, our agriculture minister came from Rockefeller Foundation

America's foreign policy has always been about maximizing its economic interests at all costs. That America shouldn't be mistaken as a softer, a kinder, and a gentler empire — notwithstanding its display of internal freedom and democracy — wasn't in doubt. And that was demonstrated by the speed with which it went about consolidating and maximizing control of global power upon taking it from Britain, as never seen since the time of Alexander the Great. The actions within its elite foreign policy circles demonstrated that. And this was clearly confirmed in a 1948 internal memo by George Kennan, US State Department Senior Planning Official, where he said, ''…we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and day-dreaming; and our attention will have to be concentrated everywhere on our immediate national objectives. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford today the luxury of altruism and world-benefaction.''

Unified under Rockefeller's vertically integrated global oil empire, it also quickly consolidated its food and agricultural empire. First it exported its fake Green Revolution, which went hand-in-hand with its agribusiness globalization under a centralized control by the Rockefeller-controlled private corporations.

...

Destroying developing countries' food sufficiency became the starting point; otherwise it could have been difficult to force them to join the Rockefeller food empire. But where could this inevitable destruction start than from luring them into Rockefeller's petrochemical fertilizer and pesticide driven Green Revolution? Expectedly, caught in this trap, came the devastation of their local agro-biodiversity thanks to the introduction of crop monoculture, which caused soil leeching and destroyed its vital nutrients; thanks to excessive pesticides, which besides killing off other plant and animal species, air, water, and land pollution, also distressed local farm economies;

Interesting article from a Nigerian publication.

What's most unfortunate is that globalism trots around the globe carrying the American flag.

For an overview of the Rockefeller Foundation, consult its wikipedia article, which mentions the Green Revolution.

Be sure to review the lists of people at the bottom of the article.

FYI... I thought it odd taht Sandra Day O'Connor is listed as a trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation.

What's even more odd, IMHO, is that several Supreme Court justices, including O'Connor, are members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the supremely influential diplomatic club of globalism.

Communist harangue totally lacking any supporting data.

What he's talking about may be to a degree situationally true, but this is by no means a reliable source. That you would cite it as reliable shows you unreliable.

Take me off your ping list please. I never asked to be on it.

Why should that be odd? Most administrations - no matter the party - have been filled with members of CFR and other Rockefeller clubs.

Political party doesn't matter to these people. They own and control both of them.

The occasional rogue politician who takes them on accomplishes little to nothing. Maybe he pulls up the corner of the curtain. Big deal. So few people are paying attention (since we're all too focused on party battles) that there's no danger whatsoever. Heck, most of what they do is "hidden in plain sight". Why, they're not even afraid to publish their membership rosters.

Been a long time brewing. The Ford foundation pushes jihad and fascist leftism. IBM has high-ranking tecnocrats as members of occupy. Microsoft’s inventor of IE is a progressive enemy of both Israel, Judaism and Christianity who claims there is no such thing as sharia. The most well-known critic of tech literature in the world was, some time ago, salivating over an offer to work for Al Jazeera.

The Empire is rotting, from the head, and at breakneck speed.

This REWRITING of history is among the most dangerous forces in this country. People may not know it, but there was ANOTHER international power that was on the march right after World War 2, and they VOWED to crush us. I won’t name the country, as it would probably get Mr. Robinson accused of a hate crime...for allowing such a non-pc statement to be made on his site.

So yes, it was a scramble after World War 2. There were 2 victors with the ability to project power, and one of the victors vowed to crush the other. That was the context.

That you would cite it as reliable shows you unreliable.

I did not cite it with any implication that it was reliable - I simply posted the article. It was interesting to me that out in the third world where all the globalist Foundations are doing their supposed "good work", those on the receiving may not all be so happy with it. And it seemed interesting that this article had information about the Rockefeller Foundation's efforts with worldwide food production that most Americans are completely unaware of. I have no idea about the publication or the author and I did not take it for granted that the article was factually correct, but the content agreed with some other information I have regarding the Rockefeller Foundation not necessarily being as American as apple pie.

I would like to know if such an opinion has ever been expressed on American media. I have not heard even Fox news (forget the rest, I assume) do any investigative reporting into what becomes of billions of taxpayer and these so-called philanthropic dollars in Africa (and around the world), other than whitewash stories that everything is happy-happy.

I posted the article - and I suggested that the reader review what the Rockefeller Foundation is all about - to shine some light on the RF and its activities.

I know of no publication that I would classify as "reliable".

But I do try to get news from a variety of sources because it allows me to compare their content.

I'll certainly remove you from the ping list right now.

I have indeed come to a point where sometimes Pravda or Russia Today has been more truthful than the NYT, but...

A *NIGERIAN* publication....? Hmm...that’s a stretch.

But what the heck, right?

Uh...I didn’t see anything but the very familiar, “We’d be rolling in dough, were it not for [insert Western entity here]”.

Like AIDS, it’s an African staple.

This is what I don't like about what the RF is doing - foreigners equate RF's activities with America itself and all Americans.

And at the same time.... RF, international banks, etc..... have their fingers all inside other nation's governments as well.

Am I not going to read a paper from Nigeria ? Or any other country ?

If it’s a load of cr@p, I use my little brain to figure that out.

I don’t care what the source is if I don’t rely on the source for factual correctness.

Where’s the logic in saying I want to lock myself out of ALL publications from Nigeria.

And accept psmbcs view ONLY ? Or the U.K. view only ?

What makes American news media now what I can only post articles from ?

The American news media, frankly, is the worst I have ever seen it, and is has always been little more than State Sanctioned viewpoints, even back in the 1960s and 1970s... but it is MUCH worse now.

The UK press is a good source, they are of course very leftwing but they will report on things the US press simply will not cover, and I give them a lot of credit there.

Pravda and russian sources have become very interesting, they actually have gone from a State Run organ to something in between a state- and a true civilian-press, and the tendency to want to slam America makes for occasional utterances of truth about our present dilemma.

Getting information outside 'traditional' American sources is truly the only way to get any clue about events and trends these days. Some of them are foreign, some of them are alternative US. I'm less likely to look at some of the third world news organs as reliable, but input from them won't be rejected out of hand. Just colored with credibility-doubt.

You can hear this theme often on Pacifica Radio, for example KPFA in Berkeley.

I simply posted the article.

Lame.

It was interesting to me that out in the third world where all the globalist Foundations are doing their supposed "good work", those on the receiving may not all be so happy with it.

There was no cited data. None.

And it seemed interesting that this article had information about the Rockefeller Foundation's efforts with worldwide food production that most Americans are completely unaware of.

That Americans are unaware is no distinction; it's a ground of being.

I have no idea about the publication or the author and I did not take it for granted that the article was factually correct, but the content agreed with some other information I have regarding the Rockefeller Foundation not necessarily being as American as apple pie.

They funded a rather notable homosexual pedophile sampling prisoners from the Indiana State Penitentiary to publish "study data" on what constitutes "normal" sexual behavior. That would be Kinsey. Rockefellers founded the Environmental Grantmakers' Association. They've been pivotal in the glow-bill warming racket. Where have you been?

I posted the article - and I suggested that the reader review what the Rockefeller Foundation is all about - to shine some light on the RF and its activities.

Try doing your own research first. I did. When you finally learn something and decide that a source is reputable, then post it.

I know of no publication that I would classify as "reliable".

That's too bad. There are many, but they tend to stick to their knitting and don't attempt to pose as "media" outlets per se.

I'll certainly remove you from the ping list right now.

Thank you.

Dear Laz,

Spiders are like attractive females - always hit on ‘em.

Now that I have assured myself of a new load of bricks (gonna make a BBQ out of ‘em) coming my way from enraged FemiNazi’s, on to the subject of this thread.

IMHO, if the farmer does not buy the GMO seeds, he simply accepted a lower crop yield. When the farmer makes the decision as to whether the GMO seeds are reasonably justifiable in terms of the extra cost being likely to produce sufficient extra yield to justify the increased cost is a decision best left to the individual farmer, not a bureaucrap or, worse by far - a member of some NGO.

Let the individual farmer make the cost/value decisions for his land because it is his crop on which he makes his living.

I was acquainted with a number of foreign students in the 80’s. The point you make about foreigners equating the RF policies with that of the American people and her government was certainly true at that time. Some of my acquaintances were charming enough people, but scratch the surface only a little bit, and their hatred for America because of their familiarity with the wrong-headed Rockefeller Foundation work in their countries would come pouring out. The people I was acquainted with could not make the distinction between the American government/people and the RF. Now, years later, I’m not so sure they were entirely wrong.

I found the article interesting for the reasons you stated in your post 8.

There's enough bullshit in this statement to fertilize an entire continent. This is the kind of propaganda I expect from Bolshevik wannabes, but it isn't something I'd expect to see people defending on FR. I don't know much about the Rockefeller Foundation, or the work they're doing in the third world that appears, from comments here, to be evil. I do know a little bit about the Green Revolution, however, and this depiction of what happened during those years is right out of the communist playbook. Anyone giving any credibility to these lies doesn't know squat about the Green Revolution, and is uniquely unqualified to be commenting on it. The fact that the statement above is a massive mountain of crap, makes it clear that nothing else in this mindless screed should be taken seriously.

Thanks for that response... wow, that's fascinating. Let me see here...

We have this statement...

I don't know much about the Rockefeller Foundation, or the work they're doing in the third world that appears, from comments here, to be evil.

Which agrees with the RF work in the third world being evil...

but then this statement,

I do know a little bit about the Green Revolution, however, and this depiction of what happened during those years is right out of the communist playbook.

Ok, so then, (thinking out loud, I'm real "slow")... then the "Green Revolution", since you're saying this depiction is right out of the communist playbook, must not be "what the Rockefeller Foundation is doing in the third world".

Ok, I think that's it - is that what you're saying, that

Green Revolution <> RF third world efforts

Because you said these statements make RF third world efforts sound evil, but also that these statements about the Green Revolution are not accurate, or perhaps presented in a misleading way, I presume that means that you think the Green Revolution is not "evil".

This is interesting, IMHO. So is the Green Revolution good or bad from your point of view, or perhaps mixed ? I confess, I had not heard of that term until today, though I was under the understanding that part of globalism was their fixation on "global" food supplies and the globalist firms' role in providing a "global" solution for the "global problem".

I'd like to understand - thanks for being patient with me.

Wait, maybe it's

What the guy said about GR <> GR

Is that your position on this ?

This goes back to to 1985-1986 school year when I was a freshman. In our dorm, there was a “common” TV room where a lot of us will go and watch the boob-tube. I remember one foreign student who was from the UK. He was also very anti-American and when the news was on he would get so mad whenever President Reagan’s name was mentioned. Around the time Libya was bombed in response to the bombing of the disco’s in Germany that killed a few American’s. This student would go off on how we are pissing of the terrorists and that we should try to understand them. I got him to go ballistic when I made the comment that the only thing that bullies understand is force and we should stand up to bullies, not try to appease them.

At the time, we had our propaganda board on campus and I posted and it was before Chernobyl happened. I posted a flyer on “Communism is like a cancer that should be treated by radiation”. I remembered this one girl got really furious with me after I posted the flyer. I had a friend with me when this happened and she remarked how great communism was and my friend made a remark that if it was great, how come you cannot buy the most basic staples like food and why toilet paper was so scarce. The girl was from the East Coast like Maryland.

> Summary - foreign students in the 9180’s and their hatred of America & Rockefeller Foundation

Hey, let’s see a show of hands for anyone who remembers the John Birch Society, you know, the conservative movement whose boots the Tea Party has stepped into. The JBS railed constantly against the Rockefeller wing of the GOP and the “liberal eastern establishment” of America’s aristocracy. Do your homework, read Carrol Quiqley’s history “Tragedy and Hope”. As far as food growing, storing and shipping, grab your Standard and Poor’s and look up:

Bunge
Cargill
Nestles
Dreyfuss
Continental

These peckerwoods control 80% of all food processing, storage and shipment on the planet.

Conservatives had damned well begin to learn the difference between CAPITALIST and MONOPOLIST, yah monopolist, the guys who gave us fascism and who are more globalist than any Marxist could make a birthday cake wish for. Ignorance is no excuse. The victors are smarter, every time, period.

Good points.

As long as Republicans kiss the collective butts of globailist corporatists, it’s doomed.

And anyone who doesn’t know that the Rockefeller Foundation promotes lefitst and thus evil causes hasn’t been paying attention.

Maybe that's true in the fever swamp in which you live, but I assure you that I don't give any credibility to the many tin foil comments on this thread. Although it's true that I do not follow the current actions of the Rockefeller Foundation in the third world, please be assured that I understand, very well, the role they played in the Green Revolution two generations ago.

Ok, so then, (thinking out loud, I'm real "slow")... then the "Green Revolution", since you're saying this depiction is right out of the communist playbook, must not be "what the Rockefeller Foundation is doing in the third world".

Huh? The Green Revolution began more than 60 years ago. Since you've obviously been spared from the ravages of critical thinking, I'm going to write this very slowly for you.....I do not follow the current actions of the Rockefeller Foundation in the third world, please be assured that I understand, very well, the role they played in the Green Revolution two generations ago.

The depiction of the Green Revolution that I quoted from your lame article is the worst kind of Bolshevik propaganda that is targeted at people who don't know their ass from a hole in the ground. These lies were created for people who could never be bothered to learn anything about the subject, but will believe any kind of crap that comes their way if it fits with their fixed mentality and depraved ideology. This kind of excrement is popular with folks who wrap the tin foil so tightly around their head that is stops the oxygen flow to their brain.

This is interesting, IMHO. So is the Green Revolution good or bad from your point of view.....I presume that means that you think the Green Revolution is not "evil".

You moron. You're here spouting off nonsense about something you know absolutely nothing about. If you knew the first thing about the Green Revolution, you wouldn't have embarrassed yourself by posting this tripe in the first place. But here you are trying to pass this crap off as something legit, when all it does is call into question your intelligence and your alleged conservative pedigree.

I was under the understanding that part of globalism was their fixation on "global" food supplies and the globalist firms' role in providing a "global" solution for the "global problem".

You provide an excellent example of everything that is wrong with the system of government education in this country today. You're so caught up in your tin foil craziness that you never bothered to learn anything about what it is you fear. Thanks to people like you, the public thinks scum like Rachel Carson are heroes, because they stood up to the toxic terrorists who were promoting the excessive use of pesticides, which besides killing off other plant and animal species, air, water, and land pollution, also distressed local farm economies; while robbing all the soil of its nutrients. These same people have never heard of Norman Borlaug who saved possibly a billion people, mostly children, from starvation by using support from the Rockefeller Foundation to create crops that would grow under near impossible conditions, and that required less land, less tilling, less pesticide, less herbicide, less fertilizer, and less water. Borlaug also led the charge against tin pot dictators who like to use food to keep the people compliant, and would starve them if they ever got uppity.

Rockefeller wanted to be a part of teaching people how to feed themselves because Communism was a very real threat in the third world, and food was the tool used by these wannabe totalitarians to gain and solidify their power. Rockefeller, in helping stem the rising tide of Communism, was also protecting his investments in these countries. Go figure, a capitalist wanting to protect his investments and wealth from a collectivist hoard of bloodsucking murderers. Rockefeller's support of the Green Revolution not only protected American investments and helped forestall the spread of Communism, it fed hundreds of millions who would have otherwise died from starvation.And know-nothing twits like you have the nerve to post your empty headed criticism here, on a conservative forum! The Communists hated the Green Revolution because it removed from them their ability to use food as a mechanism for control. You seem to have a problem with anticommunists and those who prevent starvation.

What's next for you? Will you post something from CPUSA about globalism and then try and pass it off as wanting serious discussion on an important topic? Why not share something with us from Democracy Now!? I'm sure you can find all sorts of tripe there damning capitalism for, gasp!, practicing capitalism. The article you posted here is unmitigated crap that should never see the light of day. That you posted it says a lot about who and what you are. You should be ashamed and embarrassed by this, but you're not. You're still trying to pass it off as something serious. It isn't. The way the author views the Green Revolution makes everything he writes nothing but lies - Communist lies. Sounds like you need more and better tin foil.

80%? Really?

You missed Unilever, Kraft, General Mills, Archer Daniels Midland, Dole, Tyson, Danone, Kellogg, Con Agra, Grupo Bimbo, JBS, Smithfield and hundreds more. This list doesn't even include any of the big Asian food processors.

This is the kind of hyperventilating nonsense that makes the tin foil crowd so entertaining.

Apparently Wall Streeters helped finance the Bolsheviks (including Chase National Bank). Big capital in the U.S. has apparently never been averse to dealing with communists. Ford Built a plant in Russia in 1932.

This is the stuff I find hard to square: why would capitalists not simply starve out a communist government if they were anti-communist ? Or use their influence to Stop communists from coming to power ? Also - in terms of "protecting investments" in the third world so "communists" don't take over and "take" the investments - I'm amazed that big American capital was investing in Soviet Russia. How afraid can big capital be of communism if it finances it and invests in the USSR ?

I'm working my way through finding some kind of decently reliable evidence for such crazy talk. One capitalist expressed a positive feeling about the Bolsheviks: Jacob Schiff was head of the New York investment firm Kuhn, Loeb and Co., I'm sitting here looking at a New York Times article where he and President Wilson express their well wishes at the success of the Bolshevik revolution.

I don't think a communist NY Times put up fakes of old articles on their website.

I'm simply unable to understand why a "businessman" would invest in a communist country. I know I wouldn't. There are probably a lot of small business owners who would not.

I wonder, is this why we’re burning food in our cars?

I recall an article posted here a few years ago, which quoted some fellow from some African country saying something like:

“Stop sending us your charity. Stop giving us free clothes and free food.

We need to develop an economy in which our clothes-makers and our farmers (for instance) can do business with one another. But when you keep giving this stuff away, it puts us all out of business. None of us can compete with ‘free stuff’.”

So...The farmers (for one) in poor countries can’t make a living by farming, and the country becomes dependent on the West for their food. Maybe one of Soros’ Big Ag conglomerates buys up their farmland, and hires the locals to grow sugarcane at near-slave wages, and then gets the taxpayer-funded ethanol subsidies to-boot.

(Just thinking out loud here. Tinfoil hat? Maybe. But if I wanted to subjugate people, this is one way I’d go about it...because it would work.)

You must have had some similar experiences as I did! I was acquainted with a bunch of middle eastern types during the Iran Hostage crisis. I certainly got an earful. I was sad later that I had such a diminished understanding of how to reach them and explain the deeper truth behind the situation, but I’ve been learning about it now all these years. I do wish my friends well and hope that they have been able to adjust their disdain.

One fellow I was acquainted with actually was from Afghanistan, and I heard a report that after he went home, he actually was killed in fighting. Again...back in early to mid 80’s, they were fighting the Russians at that time..

I do ask God to enlighten any and all souls from that part of the world, and to bring them into proximity of the Truth that each one needs to learn....whatever that might be.

It was very strange interacting with some of these people. You could go along quite nicely and then all of a sudden you could get a very irrational (in our culture) reaction. An American girlfriend of an engineering student (quite brilliant) COMPLETELY misunderstood the hostess/friendly persona which she put on to entertain her boyfriend’ friends. She was a musician and entertained them and did her best to make the gathering pleasant. Unfortunately, that friendliness was misunderstood as being somehow inappropriate. He accused her of being basically loose. Instead of seeing it as his partner takeing care of and impressing his friends on his behalf, he got all jealous and angry, when she had not done anything that in our culture would remotely be interpreted as such. They had quite a row about it until they had examined the cultural habits and made adjustments. But it was weird.....going along just fine (you think) and then you are in swiss cheese. Lots of holes in logic and communication. I often wonder what became of them. I do hope they are all OK and dont still hate us so terribly, because I certainly don’t hate them!
