BACKGROUND on Obama's Executive Order Establishing Government Power Over Health

by M. Newton

Obama's Executive Order lays the foundation for Codex Alimentarius in the US, an immense corporate system for control over all food and nutrition in the world created by the Nazi CEO's of IG Farben after their release from prison for their medical war crimes. These same companies, now vastly larger, have been major financial support to Bush (who undid normal public health laws around the country, militarizing them) and now to Obama.

Before looking over Obama's order itself with his repeated references to "science based," please investigate the context of Codex Alimentarius (assumed corporate power over world food and the setting of nutrient levels) and what has happened to science in the US.

a. Read this article in The Nation by Bobby Kennedy Jr. on what Bush did to US science agencies (not reversed under Obama).

b. See that the CDC put out false numbers on swine flu, and blocked FOIA when asked for ("science based") evidence, yet, two days after CBS's report revealing that H1N1 was not an emergency (but actually a scientific and financial scandal, now confirmed in Europe), Obama declared a national emergency, removing rights and all requirements for the pharmaceutical industry to test vaccines. After its false numbers resulted in billions to the vaccine manufacturers, the CDC head accepted a lucrative job with Merck as head of their vaccine division.

c. Examine the logical
necessity for the pharmaceutical industry to eliminate nutritional information and access, and note that the Obama's FDA has been aggressively aiding them by limiting freedom of speech around nutrition, and even imprisoning those providing natural cures, and threatening others. It has done this while leaving on the market drugs that have killed tens of thousands, and are now being recommended for children. Obama's order says the government will address the five leading disease killers in the the US, but does not mention that the combination of prescription drugs and medical error is the leading cause of death in the US.

d. Put into context that Obama's Executive Order taking government control of nutrition comes on the heel of bill after bill after bill recently introduced into the Senate to remove access to nutritional supplements meeting massive resistance, as the public insists on its right to continue to treat themselves, not with pharmaceutical industry drugs but through non-lethal food supplements and safe food, based on access to nutritional science.

d. Look through quotes, from agency personnel, judges, and renowned scientists, exposing a long history of the government and
US "science" agencies blocking access to treatments (including potential cures), practitioners, and scientific studies other than those from the pharmaceutical/medical industry.

e. And finally, listen to an interview with a MD. PHD at UC San Diego describing the extensive and multi-layered corruption of "science based" studies, resulting evidence, journals, articles, doctors, and medical education by the pharmaceutical industry.

[The words "science based" are used repeatedly in Obama's order, and are commonly used by Monsanto in promoting GMOs. Monsanto which runs "food safety" at FDA through its VP, Michael Taylor, is, along with Obama, promoting a ban on labeling of all GMOs worldwide. That is, Obama and Monsanto seek the removal of the most fundamental of all "science based" information - what something actually is.]

Obama's Presidential Order, ostensibly proposed out of concern for the public's nutritional health, appears to be the only means left by those who have been pushing redundantly to severe access to nutritional supplements, to override immense, vehement and successful public rejection of government control over their nutrition. With this order, Obama abandons democratic processes, shifting to non-representative power in order to establish massive government control (even through DHS) over Americans' most intimate private choices about their own and their family's health.

This intrusive Presidential Order coincides against a background in which Obama's FDA has recently said in court that Americans have no rights to choose the nutrition (food) they believe is necessary for their family's health.

Even more significantly, Obama's Presidential Order which takes unheard of government control over Americans' health comes just after Obama has asserted the astounding legal position in court through his FDA, that Americans have no "fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health."
