“Whenever people encounter a crazy idea, a high-flying absurd notion, they reject it out of hand. That’s the first impulse. ‘No, no one would believe that. It’s ridiculous.’ But as time passes, and this crazy idea is repeated over and over again, people make adjustments to their own minds. ‘Well, maybe it’s true, a lot of important authorities accept it, so maybe I should accept it. I guess it does make sense.’ This is the process of buying a cover story, buying an egregious lie meant to obscure a hidden truth.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
Being the US government means being on permanent wartime status.
Wherever it is possible to fantasize enemies, enemies are there. They must be conquered. They must be stopped.
It’s a vast cover story that, among other benefits, provides enormous profits to the military industrial complex.
Here’s an addition to the cover story: to accomplish this war on everything that moves, advanced technology must be deployed—and those who resist the omnipresence and domination of the technology are considered potential terrorists.

As bizarre as this might seem, it is an aspect of the corporate/government war on healthy organic food.
As I assemble the elements, it’s becoming clear that Monsanto is a key figure in “national security” concerns—protecting Monsanto at any cost equals protecting national security.
That’s why the people of Maui—who voted to ban Monsanto’s local GMO/pesticide experiments, pending a deep and independent investigation of everything Monsanto is doing in Maui County—have been encountering legal land-mines at every step.
