PETITION:Senate Bill S 510 outlaws gardening & saving se PostThu Nov 18, 2010 2:35 am  Reply with quote  

Senate Bill S 510 Food Safety Modernization Act vote imminent: Would outlaw gardening and saving seeds

Click here to read entire article and for petition information:
http://www.naturalnews.com/030418_Food_Safety_Modernization_Act_seeds.html

(NaturalNews) Senate Bill 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has been called "the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America." It would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public's right to grow, trade and transport any foods. This would give Big brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would grant them the power to arrest and imprison people selling cucumbers at farmer's markets. It would criminalize the transporting of organic produce if you don't comply with the authoritarian rules of the federal government.

"It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one's choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God." - Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower (http://shivchopra.com/?page_id=2)

This tyrannical law puts all food production (yes, even food produced in your own garden) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. Yep -- the very same people running the TSA and its naked body scanner / passenger groping programs.

This law would also give the U.S. government the power to arrest any backyard food producer as a felon (a "smuggler") for merely growing lettuce and selling it at a local farmer's market.

It also sells out U.S. sovereignty over our own food supply by ceding to the authority of both the World Trade Organization (WTO) and Codex Alimentarius.

It would criminalize seed saving (http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/20...), turning backyard gardeners who save heirloom seeds into common criminals. This is obviously designed to give corporations like Monsanto a monopoly over seeds.

It would create an unreasonable paperwork burden that would put small food producers out of business, resulting in more power over the food supply shifting to large multinational corporations.

I encourage you to read more about this dangerous bill at the Food Freedom blog on Wordpress: http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/20...

Watch this excellent video on NaturalNews.TV which explains S.510 in more detail:

Take action now or lose your right to grow your own food
Sign this petition at Citizens for Health:
http://www.citizens.org/?page_id=2312

Do it today! This is really important.

In addition, the Cornucopia Institute recently sent out an urgent call-to-action email containing the following information: (http://www.cornucopia.org/2010/11/a...)

How to protest Senate Bill 510

1) Go to Congress.org and type in your zip code in the box in the upper right hand corner.

2) Click on your Senator's name, and then on the contact tab for their phone number. You can also call the Capitol Switchboard and ask to be directly connected to your Senator's office: 202-224-3121.

3) Once connected ask to speak to the legislative staff person responsible for agriculture. If they are unavailable leave a voice mail message. Be sure to include your name and phone number.

Give them this message in support of the "Tester Amendment" which would exempt small farms from S.510:

"I am a constituent of Senator___________. I ask that he/she support the Tester Amendment to the food safety bill. The Tester Amendment will exempt the safest, small, owner-operator farms and food facilities and farmers who direct market their products to consumers, stores or restaurants. Food safety legislation should not create inappropriate and costly regulatory barriers to family farms and the growing healthy food movement in the drive to crack down on corporate bad actors. Please support the Tester Amendment and market opportunities for small and mid-sized family farms, and small food processing facilities."

You may also wish to explain that you oppose the Food Safety Modernization Act in its entirety, and it is a destructive, freedom-crushing law that will destroy the future of food in America.

Remember, America has already lost control over its money supply to the Federal Reserve (nearly a hundred years ago). America has lost its health due to the medical industry and its profit-from-sickness agenda. Now we may lose our right to grow our own food and save our own seeds if Senate Bill 510 passes.

This is a dangerous, tyrannical law that would thrust the American people into an age of darkness and malnutrition. It would criminalize many of the very people growing our food and turn food production into yet another corporate monopoly.

Please take the time right now to contact your U.S. Senator and voice your strong opposition to this bill.

Letter from Citizens for Health re Senate's Cloture Vote PostFri Nov 19, 2010 3:03 am  Reply with quote  

THIS IS A LETTER I RECEIVED FROM A GROUP CONCERNED ABOUT THIS ISSUE, DATED NOVEMBER 18, 2010, CONCERNING THE SENATE'S VOTING FOR CLOTURE ON THIS BILL. THERE IS MORE THAT THOSE OPPOSING THIS BILL CAN DO.

Dear [member],

Today the Senate voted 74-25 in favor of cloture on S. 510, the Food Safety and Modernization Act. (All Democrats voted in favor, as did a significant number of Republicans).

Thank you to all of our supporters who sent an email to their Senators urging them to reject cloture. While this action staves off any further debate and allows the bill to proceed to a full vote in the Senate, the fight is hardly over, and your voices helped some lawmakers – like Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), long an opponent of the bill as currently written – stand fast in the face of pressure from colleagues.

[This group] will continue to monitor every inch of the bill’s progress and keep you informed along the way. We can still stop S. 510 - send a letter now to your Senators. The bill must pass the Senate and then be reconciled in committee with the House version before it can be signed into law. This will not happen overnight, and it gives us further opportunity to ensure that our concerns are addressed and the bill amended accordingly. To read about our concerns and the changes needed for us to support S. 510, click here.

The collective power of concerned citizens making their voices heard has moved mountains – one need only look back to the passage of DSHEA for proof – and it will take all of us working together to win again.

Stay tuned for more opportunities to take action in the coming weeks, and thanks or all you’ve already done.

Yours in health,

Ellyn,
Edit the previous post or I will remove it. You are either soliciting or aiding this company to solicit here.

***Added edit***
[The previous post has been edited and the solicitations removed as requested...]


And, can you please show me where in the bill where it proves their claim, I am looking for it in the bill.
I see where the bill is trying to protect the food supply from deliberate adulteration from say some terrorist act, but I have not been able to substantiate your claim.

Here is a letter many are sending to their Senators. Some concerns are expressed within it:

Dear Senator _____,

I am deeply concerned that Sen. Leahy's Food Safety Accountability Actof 2010 (S. 3767) may be included in or attached to the Food Safety Bill (S. 510), either via the manager's amendment package or as a floor amendment. I was dismayed to read the original language of S. 3767, which contained new and draconian ten-year jail terms for adulterating or misbranding food. This was unacceptable because of the way the FDA interprets the words "adulterating" and"misbranding." You could have gone to jail for ten years just for citing scientific research from leading universities about your food product! I was pleased to learn that the bill has been amended. It now says you don't go to jail for up to ten years unless you "consciously or recklessly disregard a risk of death or serious bodily injury."This is better, but unacceptably vague and subjective. Actual harm should be required for such a long jail term. In addition, this amendment included new language which both specifically targeted supplements and made a lapse in filing to the FDA subject to the full ten-year jail term (see the reference to subsection V of Section 301 of the Federal Food and Drug Act). Paperwork violations should not lead to ten years in jail or threats of such jail terms. Why was this new language added? How can it possibly be justified? Senators are currently editing S. 510 behind closed doors, as they draft the Manager's Amendment Package, which may be substituted in place of the current Food Safety bill. It could include the Leahy bill language, and the public may not have an opportunity to review such changes before the Senate votes. If changes are made, both the Senate and the public ought to have notice of them and a chance to comment before a vote. As one of your constituents, I want you to know that I take dietary supplements regularly, and value their help in keeping my family healthy. The Leahy bill, even after improvement in some respects, is still a misguided attempt to protect our food supply or ensure the safety of supplements. There is still too much risk that natural product makers will be threatened, silenced, and penalized. Please oppose inclusion of the Leahy bill and its draconian jail terms in the Food Safety bill!

Sincerely,

This just in from the Alliance for Natural Health:

Victory! Leahy's Draconian Food Safety Bill Language Defeated For Now!‏

We’re thrilled to announce that today that, thanks to your calls and letters, the Senate Food Safety bill (S. 510) will not include those obscene ten-year jail sentences for food and supplement manufacturers who violate complicated FDA rules. Senate offices were deluged with your messages, and the Senate leadership listened to you!

Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) is the manager of S. 510. He has pulled together what is called a Manager’s Amendment, which will replace S. 510; that package does not include the language from Sen. Leahy’s bill. There was a unanimous consent agreement in the Senate on Wednesday as to what amendments will or will not be raised when the bill is debated on Monday, November 29. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) says they have agreed to “up to five” amendments, mostly procedural, and ANH-USA has been assured by Sen. Harkin’s office that Sen. Leahy’s bill is not among them. Neither the bill nor its language can be considered without another unanimous consent vote by the entire Senate, so that issue is now dead.

ANH-USA has further learned that Sen. Hatch worked with Sen. Leahy to remove a section from the Leahy bill that specifically targeted supplements and made a lapse in filing to the FDA subject to the full ten-year jail term (see the reference to subsection V of Section 301 of the Federal Food and Drug Act). This is important, because this was the worst part of the bill, and Sen. Leahy could attempt to pass his bill again, either during the Lame Duck session or in the next Congress. We are grateful to Sen. Hatch and Sen. Leahy for working together to remove this provision.

This is the second S. 510 victory for ANH-USA members and allies. You may remember that last year we were able to make sure the bill did not require the development of a plan to harmonize with the Codex Alimentarius, which would have reduced access to higher, therapeutic doses of nutrients in dietary supplements.

We’re pleased that now no one will be putting small food and supplement producers (even mom-and-pop operations) in jail for ten years simply for running afoul of mindlessly complex FDA rules. This is an exciting day for natural health and health freedom.

Some background, for readers who haven’t been following the bill’s progress as closely:

The House version of the Food Safety bill passed some time ago. That bill includes draconian ten-year jail terms for even minor paperwork violations. Long jail terms were explicitly rejected by the Senate committee that put together the Senate’s version of the bill. But Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) introduced his own bill, the Food Safety Accountability Act (S. 3767). This bill adds back the ten-year jail terms for adulterating or misbranding food.

Bear in mind, the FDA defines those terms in its own way. In the FDA’s view, “adulteration” includes recordkeeping violations, while “misbranding” includes citing peer-reviewed science about the benefits of a dietary supplement. This new threat of sanctions would have given the FDA a hammer with which to threaten and coerce companies engaging in completely legal activities.

Sen. Leahy subsequently amended his bill to reserve the jail terms for someone who “consciously or recklessly disregard[s] a risk of death or serious bodily injury.” But of course, what is conscious or unconscious, intentional or unintentional, is to be decided by FDA prosecutors. No actual harm is necessary!

The good news is that with the help of people like you, who were willing to speak out on what they considered an unjust threat, we were able to keep the Leahy language out of S. 510. Thank you—this victory belongs to all of us!

Sincerely,

HERE IS ANOTHER LETTER THAT CAN BE SENT TO SENATORS:

Dear Senator,

VOTE NO ON S.510. The Coburn/Tester amendments do NOT satisfy our concerns. This bill is NOT a 'noncontroversial' bill that the Senate can push through during the Lame Duck session!

THIS BILL AND ITS COMPANIONS SHOULD BE DEBATED BY THE NEW CONGRESS! WE DO NOT WANT MORE FEDERAL BUREAUCRACY!

SO NOT SUPPORT S.3767 which would reintroduce the criminal penalties that were not included in HR.2749 or S.510. Do not include provisions from the discredited S.3002. These bills would destroy our access to dietary supplements and local food supplies!

Your constituents and others all around the US, in our determination to protect the right of every American to clean, healthy, clearly labeled, unadulterated food, have brought strenuous objection to degrading our food supply and implementing the well-presented, but very dangerous Codex HARMonziation which the corrupt and dangerous FDA, USDA and other industry-led agencies are so eager to present to us as faits accompli.

Instead, we look to you to preserve our right to clean food, labeled to indicate pesticides, adulterants, GMOs and other dangerous ingredients and to make sure that S. 510, the mis-named "Food SAFETY Bill" is defeated through either inaction or a successful Nay vote and any similar bill is, likewise, defeated.

Among the dangers facing our food and our freedom is the FDA's determination to destroy our access to high potency nutrients although guaranteed by the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act (DSHEA). Amendments and bills to do so, along with the FDA's illegal Codex activities constantly threaten this freedom of choice. I look to you as my elected legislator to protect this right along with all other food and health freedom related ones.

I will be monitoring your activities on these issues closely. Thank you in advance for your work in the service of health and freedom. I take these issues very seriously and will vote on the basis of their support by my legislators and other elected officials.

STOP THE MONOPOLY BILL! STOP FORCED INDUSTRIALIZATION OF OUR LOCAL FOOD SUPPLIES! STOP THE BIG AGRI BIZ POWER GRAB!"

This is a very important matter to me and I will keep track of your actions on this bad bill.

Yours in health and freedom,

Food Safety Bill Update PostWed Nov 24, 2010 6:26 am  Reply with quote  

Food Safety Bill Update

November 23, 2010

Things can change very quickly on Capitol Hill. On the heels of last week’s triumph stopping the completely unacceptable Leahy bill, we have more news on the Senate Food Safety Bill (S. 510).

As you know, we do not think the Senate Food Safety bill will make food safer; quite the contrary. At least we have succeeded in removing the very worst parts of it. Together we have worked to modify language that would have committed the US to harmonization of food and especially supplement rules with the rest of the world similar to those in Europe, where attempts are being made to regulate away natural health. Working with the natural health community, we also succeeded in winning inclusion of the Tester amendment with its protection of small farmers.

The latest development on the Senate Food Safety bill is that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has, by prior agreement with other senators, inserted some new language into the Manager’s Amendment package we told you about last Friday.

When he withdrew support for his own dreadful Dietary Supplement Safety Act (S. 3002) under pressure from your messages, Sen. McCain worked out an agreement with Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Tom Harkin (D-IA) to include some of his language in the Food Safety bill, and this has been done in a new section of the Manager’s Amendment. Do not be alarmed, however! These inclusions are not a source of worry. The section in question calls for two things:

•The DEA is to be notified whenever the FDA denies a New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) application because of suspected anabolic steroid in the ingredient. This is a good thing, because it will help maintain the integrity of the natural products community.
•The FDA is to issue new NDI guidance. (The FDA was already in the process of drafting it, so there’s really no change there.)
Sen. McCain’s agreement with Sens. Hatch and Harkin called for a number of other provisions, such as FDA recall authority of adulterated or misbranded foods and supplements, but these provisions were already part of the Food Safety bill, so again, nothing was changed.

Rumors have been circulating on the Internet and elsewhere that McCain’s old bill may pass during the lame duck session, but this is absolutely not true. You may recall that McCain’s bill would have made all supplements illegal unless they were on a very short list, pre-approved by the FDA, and this is absolutely not going to happen in the Senate Food Safety bill, so this new section is not a victory in any respect for McCain.

In case you missed the news, we secured a stunning victory last Friday! The obscene ten-year jail sentences for food and supplement manufacturers who violate complicated FDA rules contained in the Leahy bill will not be part of the Senate Food Safety bill. This is thanks to all the phone calls, letters, and email messages that you sent to your senators.

Even better, Henry Waxman has agreed that the House will accept the Senate’s Food Safety bill in place of its own, which is far, far worse, and contained the ten-year jail terms. So this means that ten-year jail terms should not be in a final Food Safety bill.

In addition, Sen. Hatch worked with Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) to remove a section from the Leahy bill that specifically targeted supplements. The section made any lapse in a particular kind of filing to the FDA subject to the full ten-year jail term. We are grateful to Sens. Hatch and Leahy for working together to remove this provision. This change is important because, although the Leahy bill did not become part of the Food Safety bill, it could be brought up on its own or attached to another bill in the future.

Congress is out of session this week. A lot of discussions are occurring on Food Safety, and we are part of them. We’ll report back as soon as we have more news.
