It’s official: Bayer and Monsanto have merged. God help us all.
Historically, both companies have peddled chemicals on an industrial scale. Each company has committed despicable acts and gotten away with them. Despite their sordid pasts, Bayer and Monsanto thrive.
Did you know that Bayer was founded on August 1, 1863, in Barmen, Germany by Friedrich Bayer and Johann Friedrich Weskott? Bayer was a dye salesman and Weskott was a master dyer. They founded “Friedr. Bayer et comp.” to make and sell synthetic dyestuff.
The young Bayer company faced stiff competition from the beginning. How did they survive, much less flourish? The answer comes from the company’s website:
“Many dye factories were built at this time, but only innovative companies with their own research facilities and the ability to exploit opportunities on the international market managed to survive over the long term. Bayer was one of these companies.”
And Bayer has been exploiting international markets ever since. In 1925, Bayer became a major member of IG Farben (Interessengemeinschaft Farbenindustrie Aktiengesellschaft, German for “Syndicate of Dyestuff-Industry Corporations”) the world’s largest chemical cartel.
During World War II, IG Farben wooed and won over Adolf Hitler. The consortium got permission to set up a synthetic oil and rubber plant at the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz, using slave labor. They performed drug experiments on live inmates. But they are most famous for inventing the Zyklon B gas released in the fake shower buildings to mass murder Jews, gypsies, and other “undesirables.”
After the war, 24 Farben employees, including Carl Bosch, Fritz ter Meer, Kurt Oppenheim and George von Schnitzler were adjudged “War Criminals” at the Nuremberg trials. The case was called “The United States of America vs. Carl Krauch, et al.,” but was commonly known as the “IG Farben Trial.” According to Wikipedia:
“The indictment was filed on May 3, 1947; the trial lasted from August 27, 1947, until July 30, 1948. Of the 24 defendants arraigned, 13 were found guilty on one or the other counts of the indictment and sentenced to prison terms ranging from one and one half to eight years, including time already served; ten defendants were acquitted of all charges.”
One to eight years does not seem like much punishment for the atrocities committed by these Nazis. Who was protecting them?
Bayer came to the United States in 1958 when it established its national headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania under the name Mobay Chemical Co. – a joint venture of Bayer and Monsanto Chemical Corp. Mobay changed its name to Miles and then to Bayer.
Bayer aspirin has been an American household staple for decades. Little did we know that this monstrous corporation was founded by socialist fascists with a low regard for human life. Bayer’s “We Aren’t Bad Guys – Really!” advertising is so effective that their 2017 Annual Report gloats that global sales were up and it was: “Another record year for Pharmaceuticals.”
From 1965 to 1969, MOBAY (MonsantoBayer) manufactured the defoliant herbicide Agent Orange for the US military for use in Vietnam. Despite reports from American soldiers that exposure to Agent Orange was toxic, the federal government ordered the mainstream media to ridicule and deny the idea publicly.
Today, the federal government admits that Agent Orange injured and killed Americans troops who came in contact with it. The US Veterans Association (VA) says certain veterans are presumed exposed to Agent Orange, and therefore eligible for benefits, if they served:
• In Vietnam anytime between January 9, 1962, and May 7, 1975, including brief visits ashore or service aboard a ship that operated on the inland waterways of Vietnam
• In or near the Korean demilitarized zone anytime between April 1, 1968, and August 31, 1971
The VA has thoughtfully published a long list of diseases now known to be associated with exposure to Agent Orange. Included are many types of cancers, Parkinson’s Disease, and Ischemic Heart Disease.
Monsanto is such a criminal company that the Corporate Research Project has prepared a “rap sheet” of their lengthy lawsuit history. The company started out in Saint Louis, Missouri in 1901 to produce the artificial sweetener saccharin.
It was only after World War II that Monsanto began to manufacture herbicides branded as Ramrod, Lasso, and Roundup. In the 1980s Monsanto sold off many of its chemical businesses to concentrate on agricultural biotechnology.
Monsanto is now famous for developing GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and forcing their untested seeds on every nation worldwide. Their bullying tactics, in and out of the courtroom, have earned them the unflattering name “Mutanto,” while their GMO products are termed “Frankenfoods.”
Debate over the safety of GMO seeds and food continues to rage. Although GMO’s have been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), researchers like those at the University of New Mexico are studying these possible harmful effects:
• Food Allergy
• Increased Toxicity
• Decreased Nutritional Value
• Antibiotic resistance
There is something fishy going on in the US where Monsanto is concerned. The FDA said in its key policy statement in May 1992 that there was no reason to label a GMO food simply because it was created through a different process.
Ignorance was bliss (for Monsanto, at least) for more than 20 years. Only in 2016 did Congress pass a bill requiring labels on foods containing GMO ingredients.
The US is by no means alone in questioning the wisdom of consuming GMO “Frankenfoods.” The NonGMO Project indicates there are now:
“Sixty-four countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, require genetically modified foods to be labeled.”
Mainstream media certainly does not like to report what AltHealthWorks revealed in 2016: at that time, 38 countries outside the US had banned GMO seeds and the cultivation of GMO foods.
The $66 billion merger between chemo-tyrants Bayer and Monsanto “will create the world’s biggest pesticides and seeds monopoly,” in the words of the Huffington Post, and give “giant companies unprecedented access to farmer data, squeezing out small farmers, and potentially raising food prices for consumers.”
The relationship between feeding people and controlling them is well understood by the global elite. This little-known historical fact from Metabunk.org may well explain why the US Department of Justice just approved the creation of an international agribusiness chemical monopoly:
“In 1974, Henry Kissinger suggested using food as a weapon to induce targeted population reduction in a previously classified 200-page report, National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.”
Yes, food (and water) will be under the control of the Cabal, and all of us common folks will just have to suffer the consequences. Chew on that.
