Trump Administration Swarming with Big Ag Executives
WARNING! This is not my usual topic so brace yourselves for the read! There is a ton of research here with references and a lot of good ranting. Enjoy!
Do you think with all the money we spend to elect these ladies and gentlemen to office, they would at least be able to decide on what to put on food labels? Maybe they can, and they just have been paid too much to speak up.
When President Donald Trump took office in Washington, D.C., many advocates of clean food had high hopes for his administration, considering a past tweet in which he took a dig at Monsanto’s GMO corn as well as his family’s long-rumored penchant for organic food.
Who and what is a Monsanto? Let’s be fair and take this one from their website.
“Monsanto is an agricultural company, helping farmers large and small grow food more sustainable. From see to software, to fiber to fuel, we’re developing tools to help growers protect natural resources while providing nourishment to the world. In the face of a changing climate and other environmental challenges, we’re helping ensure our agricultural system continues to suit the needs of everyone.”
Now, that I have gotten that out of the way, I can say the only thing I found to be true in that statement is they mixed fuel with food. As a matter of fact, at the time of this writing a long awaiting closing on a deal where Monsanto is being bought out by Bayer is underway making it the largest company on Farm Data and Software according to https://www.desmoinesregister.com.
At least eight of the executives will take their leave of Monsanto after this deal. The bottom line this deal is to place them in a position to control farms and farming. And where do we get our food? Farms!
But so far in D.C. it’s been more of the same, with Trump cozying up to Dow Chemical executives, hiring a big-time supporter of Big Ag as Secretary of Agriculture, and even officially coming out in support of GMOs during a recent speech.
Now the Trump administration is helping one of the GMO and pesticide giants yet again, this time around in the form of a massive fine reduction for Swiss giant Syngenta.
In 2015 Michael Conaway was doing what he is doing now, protecting Monsanto and all the other legal drug; I mean chemical dealers, oh, I meant companies. What is the difference in big pharmaceuticals, Monsanto and Dow chemicals and the drug dealer on the street? One makes the law to imprison the other. They both are doing great harm to “we the people.”
Rep. Conaway is now the head of the Farm Bill pimping it to the American people underneath the mask of SNAP. Listen to the language of the Farm Bill, pay attention to what is really going on and be very concerned with those men in black suits who are part of the matrix pimping bills through and calling it “good for the people.”
I normally do not get this stirred on topics as I am with this one. I live in a farming community and I know the dangers of pesticides, herbicides to perpetuate a food genocide on the American people and the world.
To support their schemes to keep the money flowing in “their” pockets they got their Media and Press to feed the public a lie that we have a food shortage. This is where the Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) comes to the forefront. Folks there is no food shortage in America! Granted, there are hungry people, but there is not a shortage of food. We are blessed with an abundance and we throw more away than some countries will have be able to eat in a year!
We have so much food we are providing free meals to school age children. We have food banks across this country and when the banks are lacking it is because, yet another lie is being told. I remember our local food pantry was told that the food bank was just not getting as much as they use to, and it was not long after that suddenly food appeared again. Where did it come from? Who suddenly found food to distribute.
It reminds we of the “gas shortage.” We see the price of gas slowly climb much like it is now, and then we see the reverse. Was there really a shortage or is someone playing political games to manipulate and control the minds of the masses? I digress.
In a recent Life Liberty & The Pursuit of Pleasure Malcolm, Susan Price, Missy Crutchfield had a heated conversation about GMOs and the politics behind it. I was shocked when Susan revealed the deep darker side of the story (as she always does) blew the whistle on men like Bill Gates and George Sores who have stock in Monsanto.
Once I picked up my face, I had to see if this was so and low and behold not only is Bill Gates sponsoring a company poisoning our foods, however after further research and more information from Susan our “Gold Star Mother,” I am convinced Mr. Gates is speaking out of both sides of his mouth and something is “failing” out!
President Trump has named a former Monsanto to clean up the toxic dump. Really? I mean really, Mr. Trump. Your hire an arsonist to put out the fire?
If you’ve followed the Monsanto game of chest over the past few decades, you probably have heard about the under the table, in the back booth, in the corner in the dark connections with the company to high offices in Washington, D.C.
President Barack Obama in several assertive statements to the effect of enforcing GMO labeling but what did he do? He hired former Monsantoites executives into top agricultural posts. Mr. Obama you were wrong for that! Once again trust betrayed as you signed the nightmarish “Monsanto Protection Act” given this gorilla chemical company free will to kill.
Can we say both the Democrats and the Republican are both on the same path as Mr. Trump has now surrounded himself with this greedy money hungry genocidal group in the sacred Oval Office.
Trump Team Taps Former Monsanto Lawyer
to Lead Toxic Pollution Clean Ups
According https://action.organicconsumers.org the Organic Consumers Association, the Trump Administration has nominated Peter C. Wright, a lawyer who has spent his entire career helping Monsanto and Dow avoiding cleaning up their own toxic messes, to be in charge of forcing companies like these to clean up their environmental pollution (yep, you just can’t make this stuff up).
Currently, Wright is employed by DowDuPont, the new mega-corporation that sprung up from the Dow-DuPont merger, which is responsible for over 100 toxic Superfund sites that the EPA has still yet to fully clean up.
Wright served as an environmental attorney for seven years at Monsanto, which also has several Superfund sites to its name and is currently being sued by Ohio, Oregon and Washington for PCB contamination to the environment.
Past Superfund sites created by Monsanto include its phosphorous plant in Soda Springs, Idaho (where Roundup is made, and mined, and residents have suffered health problems); Anniston, Alabama, which has been characterized as one of the most polluted places in America; and Nitro, West Virginia, which has been ravaged by the release of chemicals like dioxin and 2,4,5-T, a component of Agent Orange.
How to Send a Message to Your Senators
If the hiring of Wright is completed, he will be appointed to the post of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) assistant administrator for Land and Emergency Management and will be responsible for holding companies like Monsanto and DowDuPont accountable for toxic waste they dump into the environment.
Sounds like a rather interesting job for someone who has made a career of helping these companies avoid having to clean up their toxic waste, doesn’t it?
To protest the pending hire, the OCA has issued a call to action for its members and supporters to tell their Senators to oppose the hiring.

Trump Administration Swarming with Big Ag Executives
While some may be surprised by the appointment considering Trump’s reputation for being anti-establishment, the truth is that his administration has been giving handouts to Big Ag from day one, and the hiring of Wright would be perhaps the most egregious one yet.
You can learn more about his pick for Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, at https://www.march-against-monsanto.com.
Trump himself also gave a massive handout to one GMO giant by reducing its fine from nearly $5 million to a measly $150,000; learn more at https://www.march-against-monsanto.com.
There is so much information about this online, however I thought I needed to jump start your interest and get you involved in the biggest business next to health care is food both of which we need to take back from the government and put in the hands of God and decent people.
We must be informed and educated. That is what I like about America Out Loud and the amazing people here.

What if we all took these foods off our shopping list? It is time for us to speak up and stand for our children and the generations to come. Shut down these companies that are killing our babies. We voted for these people to speak up for us and very few are. Now it is time for us to take our power back that our forefathers wanted to make sure we had.
Tell Congress to say NO to GMOs and Yes to GMO labeling. Notice I did not say organic or natural. We need stronger labeling than that!
The danger on the plate is real and we can do something to let our silent voices be heard. In the mean-time do what Jesus did when HE broke bread. He lifted it up and gave thanks. Be thankful and eat what you have and know we do have a voice in our government. Use it.
