Mr. Taylor started his career in 1976 as an F.D.A. staff lawyer and over the next three decades migrated among government, industry and academia. He returned to the F.D.A. in 1991 as deputy commissioner for policy and moved in 1994 to head the Department of Agriculture’s meat inspection service.
Since July, he has served as a senior adviser to Commissioner Margaret Hamburg of the F.D.A. He once worked for Monsanto, the agribusiness giant, leading some in the organic movement to oppose his appointment.
Mr. Taylor is popular among many food-safety and nutrition advocates, who call him intelligent and courageous. But he stumbled in his first major policy initiative since returning to the agency in July, and his considerable experience may have been his undoing.
At a food-safety conference in Washington last year, Dr. Michael Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, stood in the hallway and debated Mr. Taylor’s qualities with Russell Libby, the executive director of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association. “He’s extremely knowledgeable and public-health oriented,” Dr. Jacobson said in a later interview.
Back in October, I predicted that the COINTELPRO website Nanny State Liberation Front would be used to fuel a false-flag terrorist attack against nanny state activists. As many of you know, there was a shooting spree at a Safeway in Arizona where people – including a federal judge – were killed. Now word comes about of a “Safeway Amendment” to ObamaCare which allows Safeway to force all of its employees to undergo screening for everything from blood pressure to cholesterol to weight and to impose higher insurance premiums on employees who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity.
Who have been harping for years that high cholesterol and obesity lead to heart disease? The nanny state.
Judge John M. Roll and Gabrille Giffords were not the intended targets of the disturbed shooter. The target was Safeway due to its new nanny state policy concerning healthcare “reform”.
It is clear that the shooter took the Nanny State Liberation Front’s “raised fist = anarchy” logo seriously and used that as his excuse to violently lash out against the nanny state. This was a false-flag terrorist attack against the nanny state. The shooter was influenced by a COINTELPRO website, a fake Monsanto-shilling “anti-nanny state” website set up by the Military-Industrial Complex to incite violence which would be used as an excuse to go after TRUE anti-nanny staters who have ZERO corporate backing.
MARK MY WORDS. The corporate media will attempt to link the shooter to other fake “anti-nanny state” groups such as the Center for Consumer Freedom (a Monsanto front), the American Council on Science and Health (a Monsanto front), and Junkscience.com (a Monsanto front). After that, neoliberal propagandists such as Daily Kos and Huffington Post will use those connections to launch a propaganda assault on TRUE anti-nanny staters such as Alex Jones, Kevin Trudeau, and me.
I told you back in October that I have never condoned and never WILL condone any physical confrontations with nanny state activists such as CSPI (or any CSPI member such as Michael Jacobson) or MeMe Roth. I stand by that statement now, and I will continue to stand by that statement. Any person who launches a physical confrontation against Jacobson or Roth is NOT a true anti-nanny stater – they are a government agent or a MKULTRA subject programmed to carry out such an attack.
And the asshole even has the gall to DEFEND Monsanto and smear any Monsanto ties to the food “safety” bill as “conspiracy theory”. In addition, Jacobson uses the term “radical blogs” to smear purveyors of such. In other words, Michael F. Jacobson is now openly calling anti-Monsanto activists and “obesity truthers” as dangerous extremists. I posted a comment on the article where I questioned the integrity of both Jacobson and CSPI for their ties to Monsanto and how CSPI’s NANA coalition is controlled by Monsanto front groups. In addition, I exposed in the comment that Monsanto created the obesity/diabetes epidemics with corn subsidies, HFCS, aspartame, MSG, and GMOs. The last time I commented on one of Jacobson’s propaganda pieces, the comment was approved. This time, I was not so lucky for my comment was not approved. “Obesity truth” is a topic which must be censored by the true perpetrators of the obesity epidemic. They cannot allow the sheeple to know that they helped create the crisis so they can present the “solution” which does not solve the crisis; if anything, the “solution” makes the crisis worse.
Notice how Goebbelson plays the “conspiracy theory” card to dismiss anybody who says Monsanto wrote the bill as “conspiracy theorists”. And also notice how he mentions the internet. Remember, Cass Sunstein wants to censor the internet by banning “conspiracy theorizing”. This is a perfect example of how government shills and intellectual cowards use the term “conspiracy theory” to diffuse criticism of powerful organizations (such as the CFR, Bilderberg, and Monsanto). Here is the spokes-scum smearing anti-Monsanto activists – and probably “obesity truthers”, as evident by my blog tracking software which has caught the Department of Homeland Security spying on some “obesity truth” articles – as “conspiracy theorists” and extremists
Surely it is time to look beyond the more radical blogging about dire consequences of various food safety bills, and recognize how the Senate’s S. 510 has addressed legitimate concerns that federal regulations may overburden small, local producers and processors. Importantly, this bill is NOT about protecting or promoting businesses large or small. It is about protecting us consumers from preventable illnesses caused by unsafe practices by producers. (BULLSHIT! The fucking bill was written by the fucking food industry, Goebbelson! YOUR Monsanto overlords created the crisis! THIS IS YOUR REICHSTAG FIRE! REICHSTAG, GOEBBELSON! REICHSTAG! REICHSTAG!)
The bill would place responsibility for producing safe food directly on the businesses that make and sell food, and it would allow them to design the plans for achieving that purpose. Even so, the scope of the regulations is limited in the latest version of this bill to specifically ensure that small, local food production is able to thrive — while still making safety a priority. It does this by exempting a processor or farm that is a very small business or has less than $500,000 in sales made primarily made directly to consumers or through local retailers. That does not mean they get a pass on food safety. Current federal food safety laws and State laws will continue to apply to these small businesses. It is time to put aside conspiracy theories that have bubbled around the Internet and often have no connection to provisions of S. 510. (Notice how Goebbelson plays the “conspiracy theory” card to dismiss anybody who says Monsanto wrote the bill as “conspiracy theorists”. And also notice how he mentions the internet. Remember, Cass Sunstein wants to censor the internet by banning “conspiracy theorizing”.
My comment which was rejected:
Oh so “obesity truth” is now radical blogging? Am I a dangerous extremist for exposing how your NANA coalition has several Monsanto front groups as steering committee members and that the food “safety” czar is a former Monsanto lawyer? Am I a dangerous extremist for exposing the food industry links to CSPI? YOUR Monsanto overlords created the obesity/diabetes epidemics with corn subsidies, HFCS, aspartame, and MSG. I’m an “obesity troofer” and I wear that label proudly. Oh, and having a LAWYER who isn’t even a scientist shilling for GMO foods as Gregory Jaffe does? I’m beginning to think that you have as much credibility as your fellow Monsanto shill Rick Berman……ZERO.
Guess what I found while doing a Google search on CSPI? A blog called the Nanny State Liberation Front. Now I’m against the nanny state, but unlike the Nanny State Liberation Front, you will never see me shill for the phony “personal responsibility” food industry shills at the Center for Consumer Freedom.
This post by the NSLF was about the anger CSPI stirred up – sort of makes CSPI seem like an agent provocateur, eh? – when they called for McDonald’s Happy Meal toys to be banned, never mind the fact that one of the steering committee members of CSPI’s NANA Coalition is a McDonald’s front group. That’s something that the Nanny State Liberation Front won’t talk about because it doesn’t suit their agenda.
The Nanny State Liberation Front won’t talk about how CSPI and the Center for Consumer Freedom are Rockefeller/Monsanto puppet organizations pretending to be against each other while shilling for GMO foods. You won’t hear the Nanny State Liberation Front expose how CSPI and the Center for Consumer Freedom are funded by CFR members.
What you WILL find on the Nanny State Liberation Front is an effort to link patriots and TRUE anti-nanny staters with Big Food shills as well as right wingers. Among the sites listed in its Blogroll are:
- Above Top Secret
- American Council on Science and Health (industry front which says BPA and HFCS are good for you)
- Center for Consumer Freedom (the most prominent industry front group…funded by several corporate members of the CFR)
- David Icke
- Free Republic
- Godlike Productions
- Junk Science (run by Steven Milloy, a Monsanto lobbyist)
- Prison Planet
- Republic Broadcasting Network
- Rogue Government
At this time the COINTELPRO blog makes no effort to add my blog – or my sister blog devoted to the manufactured obesity epidemic, the Obesity Reichstag Chronicles – to the Blogroll. Perhaps my blog is persona non grata because I expose how the fake “food police” and the fake “personal responsibility” crowd are both funded by the same criminal elite banksters who created the obesity epidemic with aspartame and MSG. Of course that doesn’t mean that the COINTELPRO twits at the Nanny State Liberation Front will – in the future – add this blog and my sister blog to its Blogroll in an attempt to link my blog to the Center for Corporate Fascism. And if some mental midget-slash-MKULTRA patsy decides to use the Nanny State Liberation Front as an excuse to carry out some kind of attack on “food cops” such as Michael Jacobson and/or MeMe Roth, the federal government could use that as a pretext to add “anti-nanny staters” to the growing list of potential “domestic extremists”/”domestic terrorists.” Just let it be know that I will NEVER advocate any physical attacks on people such as Michael Jacobson or MeMe Roth or any acts of terrorism against them or their organizations. What I WILL advocate is the federal prosecution of Jacobson, Roth, CSPI, and the Rockefeller Foundation for their roles in creating the obesity epidemic.
Just remember the golden rule: If a so-called anti-nanny stater exposes the shenanigans of groups such as CSPI while giving groups such as CCF and ACSH a free pass, then they are not true anti-nanny staters. Instead, they are part of a calculated effort to equate TRUE anti-nanny staters with industry front groups and industry shills. This must be why misguided PETA worshippers routinely smear me as a CCF shill.
And keep in mind: This is the same American Diatetic Association which acts as a steering committee member on CSPI’s NANA “nutritional advocacy” – how Orwellian – coalition. CSPI claims to be a nutritional advocate against big evil murder-merchants such as McDonald’s and Coca-Cola, but it turns out that their “nutritional advocacy” coalition is partly controlled by an organization which is a front group for McDonald’s AND Coca-Cola! The “food police” are as much food industry shills as their fake opposition who they attack for being food industry shills. Pot, meet kettle. All CSPI does with their crazy antics and their half-hearted lawsuits is give companies such as McDonald’s and Coca-Cola free publicity. Now I know why they give McDonald’s and Coca-Cola free publicity. It’s because they are in bed with McDonald’s and Coca-Cola.
The following comment – which was surprisingly approved by the moderators – was made on the HuffPo article about VitaminWater. Lord Jacobson the Rockefeller operative cannot allow an infowarrior to expose him and his organization as a fraud. So I expect that trolls will attack my comment as everything from “conspiracy theory” to “disinfo/propaganda paid for by Rick Berman and the Center for Consumer Freedom”. The comment is as follows:
But what about the role that aspartame plays in leading to and possibly causing diabetes? To attack sugar as the cause of diabetes while ignoring other factors leads me to question your integrity. It seems like all your criticisms – and justful criticisms which I do agree with – are hyped up in a big WWE-style theatrical manner which does nothing but give companies such as Coca-Cola and McDonald’s free publicity. McDonald’s and Coca-Cola couldn’t ask for a better PR agent. Is that why the American Dietetic Association – a steering committee member on your NANA nutritional advocacy coalition – is a front group for McDonald’s AND Coca-Cola?
The American Dietetic Association, which is a steering committee member of CSPI’s NANA Coalition, is funded in part by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association is a front group for Monsanto, Cargill (Cargill Meat Solutions and Cargill Animal Nutrition Division), Pioneer (a DuPont front), DuPont Qualicon, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch (the banksters…why am I not surprised?), U.S. Bancorp Ag Credit (the banksters AGAIN!), Bayer, Dow AgroSciences, Pfizer, Kraft/Oscar Mayer Foods, Tyson Foods, Wal-Mart, and…you won’t believe this…MCDONALD’S and WENDY’S.
All these years when the libs bitched about the Center for Consumer Freedom being funded by the fast food industry and being a front group for them……and it turns out that CCF’s “opposition” – CSPI – is linked to the fast food industry as well.
Michael F. Jacobson goes on the O’Reilly Factor and bitches about McDonald’s using Happy Meal toys to seduce innocent kids into a lifestyle of unhealthy eating habits and obesity and diabetes……and now it comes out that a steering committee member of his NANA Coalition is FUNDED BY A MCDONALD’S FRONT GROUP!
Michael F. Jacobson, YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE AND A FRAUD! And the people are starting to wake up to the fact that MeMe Roth is a Monsanto apologist.
3 days ago
That bitch MeMe Roth needs to go after the chemical industry or genetic modified ingredients & Monsanto…She didn’t mention genetic modified ingredients she probably eats all kinds of genetic modified foods and breathes toxic sludge like most people…
WE ARE WINNING THE INFOWAR AGAINST THE FOOD INDUSTRY APOLOGISTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HUGE smoking gun I just found. Dr. Cynthia Goody (McDonald’s Director of Nutrition) and Julia Braun (McDonald’s U.S. Nutrition and Labeling Manager) are members of the American Dietetic Association! The ADA is a 100% McDonald’s front group! CSPI’s NANA Coalition has a McDonald’s front group as a member while CSPI complains about Happy Meal toys! CSPI and the NANA Coalition are FRAUDS!
I do agree that the commercialization of food and using TV to brainwash innocent kids into wanting fast food is bad, but once again Michael Jacobson covers up the true cause of obesity: aspartame and MSG wrecking the metabolism – which causes weight gain and can lead to obesity – and causing people to crave sugar – which causes overeating, which may cause weight gain, which can lead to obesity. The food industry apologists routinely use obesity as their main talking point in the exact same way as the Bush administration used terrorism as their main talking point? Why will Jacobson not admit that the TRUE cause of obesity is the way that aspartame and MSG wreck the metabolism? Because Michael Jacobson is an apologist for the aspartame/MSG industry…..as well as Monsanto. Google CSPI, Center for Consumer Freedom, Rockefeller Foundation, and Monsanto.
