Book Review: NLP – The Essential Guide To Neuro-Linguistic Programming by Tom Hoobyar & Tom Dotz

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place”
– George Bernard Shaw

The first time that NLP became known to me is when it was discussed by Navy Seal Michael Jaco in an interview that was conducted with him.   Jaco also mentions it briefly in his book The Intuitive Warrior where he details many of the experiences in his life.

That lead me to research Neuro-linguistic programming in a cursory manner, and figured the information provided might do me some good.

Of all books available, NLP – The Essential Guide To Neuro-Linguistic Programming by Tom Hoobyar and Tom Dotz, was the one that appealed to me more than the others.

In any case, although this is my first book on the subject [and will continue to look into it in future books and such], it is quite comprehensive.

At its foundation, it basically consists of explaining the process of human thought.  Thereafter, it gives the reader countless angles from which to be able to address any in a myriad of issues when it comes to how the mind creates/addresses experiences in our daily lives and how we as individuals can take charge of this process for the betterment of ourselves and others.

This particular book brings clarity to many emotional circumstances that take place between individuals, or even groups, and helps one be able to key in to certain factors. The author’s tempo is quite consistent throughout, and it doesn’t really go too fast, or too slow for the reader. The subject of NLP is analyzed from quite a few different angles.

In the beginning it covers the importance to understanding how one thinks. Therein we can learn how others manage their thoughts, whether they know it or not. From there on the book addresses thought patterns and couples that with belief filters that dictate how we view reality.

Belief filters are quite intriguing, because although an individual might be getting information, the information that his mind is viewing is being processed through a particular filter, which might or might not be beneficial. For instance, some beliefs, if positive, allow you to have a more positive outlook, thus you’re more likely to make positive choices due to that. However, the converse is also true.

Another notable point that is discussed is what emotional anchors are, as well as how to use them is touched upon. This is fascinating in that it can help people build upon the positive aspects of their life, rather than just ‘roll with the punches’ so to speak.

Triggers of emotion are also focused, being that they are so imperative in the construction of our emotional sphere.

The book also covers the notion of “Modalities” as well as “Sub-Modalities”. These are important because this is a reflection of how we feel based on certain qualities/distinctions.

One particular bit of the book that’s noteworthy is the fact that it mentions that any particular emotion, is just one option of many one can partake in. This is vital, as many people seem to be able ‘not to control’ their emotions and allow them to be automatic. By allowing themselves to be controlled by their emotions, and not be other way around, these individuals often find themselves in emotive-charged circumstances that are quite dense in stress.

Time and time again, this book covers the importance of ‘living in the moment’. This is tackled quite extensively as its monumentally beneficial, rather than living life on autopilot which most people unfortunately do.

Another prominent tenet that’s addressed that has various component are the Navy Seal’s “Big 4”. These are particular tools/habits that help Navy SEALs tackle countless intense instances where they need to forge ahead, regardless of circumstances.

Other ideas discussed are Meta-programs, the importance of physical signals such as personal space, body position, posture, gestures, touch & even eye movement, as well as being able to put yourself in other people’s mind to find out how they might be feeling.

The power of belief, some being good and some bad, are also mentioned in a quite remarkable manner.

This NLP Essential Guide makes it possible to abdicate many of the bad habits that plague individuals.

It would be erroneous however to think that once one is finished reading the book, the job is done. Those kind of limiting thoughts would placate any change that might be possible if one is not willing to put in the work.

In hindsight, there are so many different topics and ideas discussed that, at minimum, even with highlights and notes taken, it will take another reread of the most notable aspects to full anchor down all of the information.   That, or by regularly studying the concepts will one be able to fully gain the benefits of the information.

Even with everything mentioned, there is still a lot more ideas, and examples that are addressed that would be highly beneficial to many people. There is just too many to mention.

As previously said, this book really is quite comprehensive. Applying the ideas/concepts every day is where your life will begin to change.

In the end, the choice is yours.

Retail Rapture – American Estimated To Spend Over $700 Billion Dollars On Largest 5 Holidays In 2015

Shopping

By: Zy Marquiez
January 15, 2016

“Recreational shopping is the shortest distance between two points: You and Broke.”
– Victoria Moran

The new year has begun in earnest. Goals have been set by individuals. The sun is rising on a ‘new beginning’.

With that in mind, where we travel on our way forward into the future has everything to do with where we’ve been.

Let’s see where we were financially – as a nation – in the year 2015.

What follows is an amalgamation of the biggest holidays in the American landscape, and what the establishment estimated the nation would spend as a whole during those days:

Fourth Of July

The establishment had expected $6 Billion dollars spent for this holiday

Labor Day

It was estimated that $13.5 Billion would be spent on labor day what.

Halloween

Americans planned on spending $7.4 Billion on Halloween alone. P.S. That includes $350 million dollars for pet Costumes. You read that correct.  

Thanksgiving

During Thanksgiving, which is off course now notoriously coupled with Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, Americans were estimated to spend $80 Billion.

Christmas

At the top of the proverbial pyramid of consumerism, Americans were expected to spend $600 Billion dollars.

The total estimated Americans would be spent just on those 5 Holidays was $706.9 Billion dollars. That’s nigh 3 quarters of a Trillion dollars. That’s a lot of freaking money paper!

Some will instantly say, but those are estimates and they would be right. But estimates have precedents, and while the number could be lower, it could also be higher. Especially since it doesn’t seem like Retail Rapture is ending any time soon.

—————————–

One of the main tenets of this blog is empowering the individual. In order to forge ahead, individuals, which are the foundation of society, need to be cognizant of what they do if they want to move forward – breakawaybeyond the current system that taxes every aspect of y/our life.

With that said, in order for the nation to spend nearly 3/4 a Trillion Dollars, it takes a lot of individuals to carry that out.

Ponder this: what would happen if the entire country saved just 10% of that money? That seems quite reasonable. That would be a savings of $70 Billion in one year, as a nation.

And people are saying that the economy is going to collapse? Are you kidding me!

In any case, narrowing down this to the local, individual level, what would saving just 10% of your Holiday expenditures help you accomplish? Ruminate on that a bit. In fact, take your time and think long and hard how much saving just 10% of your Holiday money can help you building your future. There is a lot that can be accomplished given how much money was estimated to be spent.

Being cognizant of the above, where do we head too financially, as individuals, from here?

That, my friends, only you know can know.

Because the choice, is ultimately yours.

Secret Space Program Conference [2009] – Richard Dolan Presentation

By: Zy Marquiez
January 14, 2016

The Secret Space Program Conference was held on the 3rd of April 2011 in Amsterdam and boasted a lineup of many notable speakers. One of the many upper echelon researchers that took part in this event was Richard Dolan, who in the year 2000 published a 500-page study named UFOs and the National Security State.   This conference also featured Timothy Good, who has amounted over 30 years of research, and who has authored Above Top Secret: The Worldwide UFO Cover-up [1987], which became an instant bestseller at hand.  Also showcased in this conference is Peter Levenda, who wrote Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi Involvement With the Occult and also Richard Hoagland who was a NASA Consultant who authored Dark Mission, which focuses on the secret history of NASA.  These are only some of the noteworthy speakers who took part in the conference.

The above presentation focuses on Richard Dolan’s research of the Secret Space Program.

In true methodical fashion, Richard Dolan focuses from beginning to end in his presentation on the inner workings of the covert Secret Space Program in an incredibly incisive fashion.

Early in his lecture, Mr. Dolan hones in on the signature statement by Ben Rich, who was the CEO of the Skunkworks Division of Lockheed at one time.  Dolan proceeds to break down the provocative statement Ben Rich said at the UCLA School of Engineering regarding humans already having the technology to take ET back home.

Other aspects referenced by Mr. Dolan are what some would term ‘classic’ Military Documentation gathered via the Freedom Of Information Act [FOIA] such as the Twining Memo [1947], the Minot AFB UFO Landing Memo [1966], the DIA Memo regarding the Iranian Jet Fighter Incident [1976], the Halt Memo [1981], the DIA Documents pertaining to the Belgian UFO wave [1990] as well as a myriad of other pertinent documentation.

With his usual calm and engaging demeanor, Richard Dolan carries out the entire presentation in a method that anyone, be it neophyte or veteran to the subject, could understand.

Besides expounding about military documentation, Mr. Dolan covers anonymous information leaks, crash retrievals and the people possibly in control of this covert and powerful world.  In addition, he delves into secrecy revolving the programs and the multitude of levels that this particular secrecy encompasses.

The 2001 Disclosure Program is also addressed in Richard’s presentation.  Mr. Dolan gives his input on the Karl Wolfe testimony which took place at the National Press Club.

Karl Wolfe, who had a top secret crypto-clearance in the United States Air Force, recounts what an Airmen Second Class told him in 1965 while he was at the Lunar Orbiter Program at NASA:

By the way we’ve discovered a base on the backside of the moonThen he proceeded to put photographs down in front of me and clearly in these photographs were structures, mushroom shaped buildings, spherical buildings and towers.  At that point I was very concerned because I knew that we were working on compartmentalized security.  He had breached security.  And I was actually frightened at that moment.  And I did not question him any further.  A few moments later someone did come into the room.  I worked there for three more days and I remember going home and naively thinking I can’t wait to hear about this on the evening news.  And here it is, more than 30 years later and I hope we hear about it tonight.  And I will testify under oath before congress.[Emphasis added]

There were many powerful statements carried out at the National Press Club in 2001.  Karl Wolfe’s was just one of many which took place on that momentous day.

Another thought-provoking statement discussed by Mr. Dolan was the one carried out by Clark McClelland regarding what Ben Rich stated to him:

“I worked at Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center from 1958 to 1992.

There are many mysteries that have been discovered during the years that we have been exploring the moon, sun and planets.

The former CEO of Lockheed Skunk Works, [SR-71, Stealth Fighter, etc.] was visiting the Cape many years ago.  I asked him a question.  Ben Rich said, ‘Clark, Black Budget money has taken the USA Military at least 50+ years beyond the present understanding of the general public and how far we are technologically advanced.”  I said, “Mars, Sir?” He looked at me [and] his head movement said yes.

Are there monuments on the moon, Mars, etc., bet on it.” [Emphasis added]

Statements such as the one said by Ben Rich, which wasn’t the only time he spoke in such a tantalizing manner as we have seen, propel the populace’s minds into a whirlwind of much speculation & wonder.

In this informative presentation, Richard Dolan also elucidates what the Secret Space Programs could be about.  Gravitating from theory to theory, Mr. Dolan posits multiple likely and realistic possibilities for the reticent programs such as profit, the creation of UFO technology, biotech research as well as a handful of other possibilities.  Richard at one point also speaks about the fact that the Black Budget Programs have no oversight whatsoever, which other researchers have also noted.

Possible funding avenues for these black budget programs are also addressed by Richard Dolan such as the $2.3 trillion dollars which went ‘missing’ from the Pentagon just prior to 9/11.

Lastly, he also postulates what he coined, “The Breakaway Civitilization”, which in theory is a nefarious & disproportionately powerful portion of humanity with technological prowess far better than the mainstream world could fathom, pockets deeper than anyone could imagine while also sporting the capability to perhaps get off-world, that has detached permanently from humanity in all notable disciplines.

What could such a far-reaching civilization accomplish?  Richard Dolan seeks to answer these questions as well.

All in all, the entire presentation was well thought out and easy to follow.

The Secret Space Program Presentation by Richard Dolan is a must watch for those interested in the abstruse subject of UFOs & the Breakaway Civilization.

When Richard Dolan’s presentation is taken in conjunction with the presentations carried out by the other speakers, the Secret Space Program conference does an unparalleled job of painting a vast landscape of possibilities that are extremely thought-provoking within the esoteric realm that has become UFOlogy.

Book Review: Gut And Psychology Syndrome by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD

gutpsych
BreakawayConsciousness
Zy Marquiez
January 13, 2016

There are many reviews out there in respect to this book Gut And Psychology Syndrome by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD. Within these there’s a kaleidoscope of different point of views in respect to what their personal opinions/anecdotes have been.

One thing that one particular individual stated that the tone of the book seemed like the author offered a ‘miracle’ cure.   That was never something that seemed for me to be the case.  A treatment, by definition, is not a cure.  If after conquering whatever disease it might be, if an individual opts to stop this ‘treatment’ its very likely that disease will crop up once more.

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride grounds the data provided in this book with an overwhelming amount of scientific evidence. Anyone looking for quick ‘miracles’ is sadly mistaken.

This book can help people, but its hard work – a lot of hard work. There are no guarantees however.

The human body is a constellations of systems within systems all performing a synergistic dance that makes us who we are. When portions of this system is out of balance – even just one ­aspect – there can be quite the detrimental side effects thereafter.

Given that, this book has helped a large amount of people that have opted to follow the diet/data provided here.

The data information provided in this book, especially when coupled with ‘The Paleo Approach’ By Sarah Balantyne Ph.D. helped me immensely.

Am just mentioning Balantyne’s book for those looking for more research into diet and how that can help one overcome [or at least move into the right direction] the countless diseases plaguing individuals nowadays.

As a person who has had Ulcerative Colitis, a sound diet has been a life saver for me, literally. This hasn’t come easy.

The title of this book doesn’t mention UC outright, however, the disease is definitely mentioned in the book, and more importantly, the issue of ‘leaky gut’ is tackled rather incisively. This is important because gut issues are present in all unhealthy people. When you look at disease from this angle, there is a lot of knowledge to be had for those seeking to why dis-ease is as wide spread as it is, as well as what are some of the things one can do to begin moving forward.

Getting back to a previous point, the diet component is not easy. It is possible however. If such wasn’t the case, so many people wouldn’t be giving this particular review and sharing anecdotal data of their successes and such.

For me personally, the sugar component was the hardest thing to overcome. Overcoming this factor is absolutely imperative for people to overcome if one wants regain their health.

Sugar is absolutely widespread in our culture these days, and it causes way more problems that can be listed here. As Campbell-Mcbride elucidates the average western person consumes about 160-200 lbs of sugar a year. Not only that, but sugar itself fuels Candida, and worse, cancer. And that’s just one component in the diet. The author mentions countless ones that cause deleterious issues.

Its important to know what causes dis-ease in our modern society, and this book does a particularly poignant job in shedding light into many confusing aspects of diet.

This book had been recommended to me years ago, and made the mistake of not getting it. If you have been interested in this book, don’t make the same mistake that was done by me. If you’re already here, you’ve probably heard of the work done by the author and whatnot, and are familiar with some of the progress that has taken place by people that have been willing to approach this with an open mind.

After being hospitalized countless times [almost every other year [and sometimes consecutive years ongoing] for many years and sometimes staying for weeks], and having been out of remission with UC for years at a time, something had to be done.

The solutions outlined by doctors were just not cutting it for me. Nothing was working. This was why it was easy to realize that big changes had to be implemented if a healthy life was going to be attainable for me again.

This book by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, as well as Balantyne’s book The Paleo Approach were very instrumental in me regaining my health. There are many options out there. Am just putting light to the information in hopes that perhaps in the future this help can help others as its helped me.

This is just speaking from personal experience. Take that for what it’s worth.

Topics such as the gut, the immune system, gut flora [and all its components] as well as even the gut-brain connection are all written about quite well. Toxins of all kinds are also broken down so to speak.

Within the recommended diet portion of the book, the most important and beneficial dietary changes that can be had are spoken about at length, as well as the top influences that help the immune system, as well as the ones that damage it, are also touched upon.

There really is a lot of vital information to be had by this book. The strength of it lies in how it allows the reader to realize the importance of gut health is, given the little amount of information coming out from the medical establishment.

In any case, there is extensive information for people whether they are at a beginner level, or come from a more experienced area in relation to these topics.

This is the type of information you wish everyone within the medical fields [and all education for that matter] were exposed too. That’s fantasy thinking however.

In the real world, the individual needs to do everything he can to regain their health, and its their responsibility to do that. This book helps you along that journey.

As mentioned before, a mistake was made by me years ago in not getting the book when it was extremely recommended by a dear friend of mine who had many health issues they conquered. Don’t make the same mistake.

If you’re interested, by all means go ahead. You will not regret it.

Logical Fallacies Employed In Every Day Life

By: Zy Marquiez
January 12, 2016

[Editor’s Note]

A big thanks goes to my friend John for bringing this topic up.
————————————————————————

For the record, these were not created by me.  They are just being shown for individuals to be able to identify them in their daily lives.

What is a logical fallacy?

A logical fallacy is a flaw in reasoning. Strong arguments are void of logical fallacies, whilst arguments that are weak tend to use logical fallacies to appear stronger than they are. They’re like tricks or illusions of thought, and they’re often very sneakily used by politicians, media, and others to fool people. Below follow some of the more common fallacies.

Strawman
Misrepresenting Someone’s Argument To Make It Easier To Attack
By exaggerating, misrepresenting, or just completely fabricating someone’s argument, it’s much easier to prevent your own position as being reasonable, but this is kind of dishonest and serves to undermine honest rational debate.
Example: After will said we should put more money into health and education, Warren responded by saying he was surprised that Will hates our country so much that he wants to leave it defenseless by cutting military spending.

Slippery Slope
Asserting That If We Allow A to happen, then Z will consequently happen too, therefore A should not happen.
The problem with this reasoning is that it avoids engaging with the issue at hand, and instead shifts attention to extreme hypotheticals. Because no proof is presented to show that such extreme hypotheticals will in fact occur, this fallacy has the form of an appeal to emotion fallacy by leveraging fear. In effect the argument at hand is unfairly tainted by unsubstantiated conjecture.
Example: Colin Closet asserts that if we allow same-sex couples to marry, then the next thing we know we’ll be allowing people to marry their parents, their cars and even monkeys.

False Cause
Presuming that a real or perceived relationship between things means that one is the cause of the other.
Example
: Pointing to a fancy chart, a Senator shows how temperatures have been rising over the past few centuries, whilst at the same time the numbers of terrorist attacks have been increasing; thus global warming causes terrorism. [Don’t believe me? Look it up – an actual senator that said this.]

Ad Hominem
Attacking your opponent’s character or personal traits in an attempt to undermine their argument.
Example: After Sally presents an eloquent and compelling case for a more equitable taxation system, Sam asks the audience whether we should believe anything from a woman who isn’t married, was once arrested, and smells a bit weird.

Special Pleading
Moving the goalposts to create exceptions when a claim is shown to be false.
Example: Edward Johns claimed to be psychic, but when his ‘abilities’ were tested under proper scientific conditions, they magically disappeared. Edward explained this saying that one had to have faith in his abilities for them to work.

Loaded Question
Asking a question that has an assumption built into it so that it can’t be answered without appearing guilty.
Example: Grace and Helen were both romantically interested in Brad. One day, with Brad sitting within earshot, Grace asked in an inquisitive tone whether Helen was having any problems with a fungal infection.

The Gambler’s Fallacy
Believing that ‘runs’ occur to statistically independent phenomena such as roulette wheel spins.
Example: Red had come up six times in a row on the roulette wheel, so Greg knew that it was close to certain that black would be next up. Suffering an economic form of natural selection with this thinking, he soon lost all of his savings.

Bandwagon
Appealing to popularity or the fact that many people do something as an attempted form of validation.
Example: Shamus pointed a drunken finger at Sean and asked him to explain how so many people could believe in leprechauns if they’re only a silly old superstition. Sean, however, had had a few too many Guinness himself and fell off his chair.

Black-Or-White
Where two alternative states are presented as the only possibilities, when in fact more possibilities exist.
Example: Whilst rallying support for his plan to fundamentally undermine citizens’ rights, the Supreme Leader told the people they were either on his side, or on the side of the enemy. [Note: George Bush did this by the way…]

Begging The Questions
A circular argument in which the conclusion is included in the premise.
Example: The word of Zorbo the Great is flawless and perfect. We know this because it says so in The Great and Infallible Book of Zorbo’s Best and Most Truest Things that are Definitely True and Should Not Ever Be Questioned.

Appeal To Authority
Using the opinion or position of an authority figure, or institution of authority, in place of an actual argument.
Example: When an individual states that vaccines are safe just because doctors say so, even though countless studies can be cited to eviscerate the ‘safety’ argument.

Appeal To Nature
Making the argument that because something is ‘natural’ it is therefore valid, justified, inevitable, good, or ideal.
Example: The medicine man rolled into town on his bandwagon offering various natural remedies, such as very special plain water. He said that it was only natural that people should be wary of ‘artificial’ medicines such as antibiotics. The converse is also true, which could be in a way called Appeal To Technology/Science.

Composition / Division
Assuming that what’s true about one part of something has to be applied to all, or other, parts of it.
Example: Daniel was a precocious child and had a liking for logic. He reasoned that atoms are invisible, and that he was made of atoms and therefore invisible too. Unfortunately, despite his thinky skills, he lost the game of hide and go seek.

Anecdotal
Using personal experience or an isolated example instead of a valid argument.
Example: Jason said that that was all cool and everything, but his grandfather smoked, like, 30 cigarettes a day and lived until 97 – so don’t believe everything you read about meta analyses of sound studies showing proven causal relationships.

Appeal To Emotion
Manipulating an emotional response in place of a valid or compelling argument.
Example: Luke didn’t want to eat his sheep’s brains with chopped liver and brussels sprouts, but his father told him to think about the poor, starving children in a third world country who weren’t fortunate enough to have any food at all.

The Fallacy Fallacy
Presuming that because a claim has been poorly argued, or a fallacy has been made, that it is necessarily wrong.
Example: Recognizing that Amanda had committed a fallacy in arguing that we should eat healthy food because a nutritionist said it was popular, Alyse said we should therefore eat bacon double cheeseburgers every day.

Tu Quoque
Avoiding having to engage with criticism by turning it back on the accuser – answering criticism with criticism.
Example: The blue candidate accused the red candidate of committing the tu quoque fallacy. The red candidate responded by accusing the blue candidate of the same, after which ensued an hour of back and forth criticism with not much progress.

Personal Incredulity
Saying that because one finds something difficult to understand that it’s therefore not true.
Example: Kirk drew a picture of a fish and a human and with effusive disdain asked Richard if he really thought we were stupid enough to believe that a fish somehow turned into a human through just, like, random things happening over time.

Burden Of Proof
Saying that the burden of proof lies not with the person making the claim, but with someone else to disprove.
Examples: Bertrand declares that a teapot is, at this very moment, in orbit around the Sun between the Earth and Mars, and that because no one can prove him wrong his claim is therefore a valid one.

Ambiguity
Using double meanings or ambiguities of language to mislead or misrepresent the truth.
Example: When the judge asked the defendant why he hadn’t paid his parking fines, he said that he shouldn’t have to pay them because the sign said ‘Fine for parking here’ and so he naturally presumed that it would be fine to park there.

No True Scotsman
Making what could be called an appeal to purity as a way to dismiss relevant criticisms or flaws of an argument.
Example: Angus declares that Scotsmen do not put sugar on their porridge, to which Lachlan points out that he is a Scotsman and puts sugar on his porridge. Furious, like atrue Scot, Angus yells that no true Scotsman sugars his porridge.

Genetic
Judging something good or bad on the basis of where it comes from, or from whom it comes.
Example: Accused on the 6 o’clock news of corruption and taking bribes, the senator said that we should all be very wary of the things we hear in the media, because we all know how very unreliable the media can be.

The Texas Sharpshooter
Cherry-picking data clusters to suit an argument, or finding a pattern to fit a presumption.
Example: The makers of Sugarette Candy Drinks point to research showing that of the five countries where Sugarette drinks sell the most units, three of them are in the top ten healthiest countries on Earth, therefore Sugarette drinks are healthy.

Middle Ground
Saying that a compromise, or middle point, between two extremes is the truth.
Example: Holly said that vaccinations are safe, but her scientifically well-read friend Caleb said that this claim was untrue because there were dozens of studies proving otherwise. Their friend Alice offered a compromise that vaccinations are sometimes safe.

Breaking – Campbells Moves To Label Their GMO Products / Questions Still Loom


By: Zy Marquiez
January 8, 2016

In a stunning development, Campbell Soup is breaking rank with all other companies which do not label genetically modified ingredients in their products.

Following the recent victory in Vermont that requires genetically modified organism [GMO] labeling within the state, the company has begun taking action towards this new reality.

Where all this could be headed, the following article below by the New York Times elucidates:

Campbell Labels Will Disclose G.M.O. Ingredients

Most interesting shown within the article:

Campbell is also breaking with its peers by calling for federal action to make mandatory a uniform labeling system of foods that contain such ingredients, commonly known as G. M.O. labeling, said Denise Morrison, chief executive of Campbell.

Campbell is calling for mandatory labeling of products that use ingredients from G.M.O. crops. Credit Campbell Soup Company

“We’re optimistic that a federal solution can be reached in a reasonable amount of time, but if that’s not the case, we’re preparing to label all our products across the portfolio,” Ms. Morrison said in an interview.

She said about three-quarters of the company’s products contained ingredients derived from corn, canola, soybeans or sugar beets, the four largest genetically engineered crops. The change in labeling is expected to take 12 to 18 months.

The first example provided by the company, for a SpaghettiO’s label prepared for Vermont, is sparsely worded and does not specify which individual ingredients are genetically altered. It simply states at the bottom of the label: “Partially produced with genetic engineering. For more information about G.M.O. ingredients, visit WhatsinMyFood.com.” [Bold and underline emphasis added].

Whilst the opening statement should send a shot across the entire corporate food sector, the main point should be that there is an incredible lack of specificity of GMO labeling for a company claiming it wants a ‘mandatory uniform labeling system’.

What are we to take of this?

Is Campbell’s Soup attempting to make a politically corporately correct move by asking for what it knows is coming, but doing so in such a manner [keep in mind, they are not being specific about which items are being genetically modified] that ameliorates the amount of waves being caused by showing that they haven’t fully converted their products to precise GMO labels?

Another notable point of the article was put forth by Mr. Vilsack, who is the agriculture secretary. Please keep in mind, as Jon Rappoport of NoMoreFakenews.com has reported before, Tom Vilsack is one “of Monsanto’s most influential political allies in the world”:

“I’m going to challenge them to get this thing fixed,” Mr. Vilsack told The Register, adding that he was worried about “chaos in the market” if other states follow suit. “That will cost the industry a substantial amount of money, hundreds of millions of dollars, if not more, and it will ultimately end up costing the consumer,” he said.

The ultimate cost individuals eating GMOs would pay via their health, would be far more than what the financial increase to them will be. As penned by Christina Sarich, of NaturalSociety.com, this is a great reason why “over 60 countries have already passed mandatory GMO labeling laws”, with many countries such as Russia choosing an outright ban:

64 Nations Say No To GMO, Yet US Govt Nears Illegal GMO Labeling?

As Sarich implores trenchantly in the article:

“So are we really supposed to believe that genetically engineered crops are safe and that the average consumer in America who is practically begging for organic food is simply over-reacting, or are we to correctly assume that the United States has been bought by biotech?”

An excellent synopsis of the current issues regarding the abstruse, but rather overarching aspects of the GMO issues is covered by F. William Engdahl:

“Genetic Manipulation Of Organisms: Legal Victory in “Paris vs. Monsanto GMO Cabal”

As stated by Engdahl:

The entire field of so-called biotechnology is corrupt and rotten to its very unscientific, reductivist core. That should not surprise as it was created deliberately by America’s leading eugenics family and funded by their Rockefeller Foundation to advance their mad eugenics agenda at the very same time the Rockefeller Foundation was funding the Nazi eugenics research at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin.

Within Engdahl’s analysis he also mentions what should be shocking to most, which is the fact that the Seralini study:

was the first-ever long-term rat study documenting the effects of a GMO diet in the entire twenty years’ history of commercial GMO. The results were bone-chilling.” [Bold Emphasis added].

Couple this with what investigative reporter Jon Rappoport mentions in:

Anti-GMO movement’s PR agency represent’s who??

The FDA is the criminal agency that allowed GMO crops through the door, to begin with, in 1996, by saying, based on zero research, that GMO and non-GMO crops were identical.”

Given the fact that Big Biotech has never really show any credible evidence of GMO safety in intergenerational studies, and more, should they even be trusted?

While the above news brought about by the NYT seems positive and ultimately, could be, we must remain concerned in the fact that there is still myriad issues not being addressed.

Why has Campbell Soup asked for a ‘mandatory uniform labeling system’ and then in the same breath, mention that they lack specificity in their products? It’s not like they didn’t know the labeling in Vermont was coming. If they were truly turning over a new leaf, those labels would be on the products already.

Detaching to gaze at the larger picture, why is Tom Vilsack even trusted as the secretary of agriculture, knowing he has extensive ties to Monsanto?

And finally, although over 92% of Americans polled are for GMO labeling, the better question is, why label the GMOs, when you can just ban them? Why allow ‘food’ that’s never been proven safe to be part of the food suply, especially when it has been supported by the surreptitious machinations of big biotech the whole way through?

One way or another, what Campbell Soup has carried out will show its true colors, sooner or later.

For the time being, be very skeptical, because for every new data point that arises, there are many that have are not being addressed except by a handful of people. And those questions, are ultimately where the darker side of GMOs lie.
