Monsanto Pushes Bizarre Conspiracy Theory to Deflect Blame for GE Wheat Contamination

There is a grand conspiracy theory at work to destroy the value of U.S. wheat crops, put forth by Chief Technology Officer Robb Fraley, a Monsanto executive, to mainstream media reporters in a telephone conference.

The contaminated GE wheat recently discovered in Oregon didn't get there by escaping Monsanto's open-air GMO experiments, the company claims. Instead, they say it might have been put there by a conspiracy of crop criminals who somehow acquired GE wheat from Monsanto's field trials way back in 2005, then somehow saved it in a way that kept it genetically viable for eight years, then supposedly drove around Oregon for the sole purpose of releasing the GMOs in some farmer's field that they just hoped the USDA might be someday be testing for GMO contamination.

Monsanto pushes bizarre conspiracy theory to deflect blame for GE wheat contamination of commercial crops

(NaturalNews) There is a grand conspiracy theory at work to destroy the value of U.S. wheat crops, Monsanto recently told mainstream media reporters in a telephone conference. The contaminated GE wheat recently discovered in Oregon didn't get there by escaping Monsanto's open-air GMO experiments, the company claims. Instead, they say it might have been put there by a conspiracy of crop criminals who somehow acquired GE wheat from Monsanto's field trials way back in 2005, then somehow saved it in a way that kept it genetically viable for eight years, then supposedly drove around Oregon for the sole purpose of releasing the GMOs in some farmer's field that they just hoped the USDA might be someday be testing for GMO contamination.

That's the far-fetched conspiracy theory now being pushed by Monsanto to explain how commercial wheat crops in Oregon got contaminated with GMOs. It was put forth by Chief Technology Officer Robb Fraley, a Monsanto executive, in a phone call with reporters.

"It seems likely to be a random, isolated occurrence more consistent with the accidental or purposeful mixing of a small amount of seed during the planting, harvesting or during the fallow cycle in an individual field," Fraley said on the call, making him the first Monsanto executive to publicly admit he is a conspiracy theorist. He goes on to confirm that the company is investigating the possibility of "sabotage" to explain the wheat field contamination.

Did little green men spread Monsanto's GMO seeds?

There's only one problem with this bizarre conspiracy theory: No one knew in advance the USDA would be testing that farmer's wheat field in Oregon. In fact, testing fields for GMO contamination is such a rare thing that the odds of a band of "conspiracy activists" correctly guessing which field was going to be tested by the USDA are at least 10,000 to 1.

To successfully pull off this wild conspiracy theory being pushed by Monsanto, activists would have had to contaminate nearly ALL commercial wheat fields with genetically modified seed, and this would have involved a nationwide logistics effort of such magnitude that it would have been impossible to keep it secret. Is Monsanto really suggesting there exists a secret group of hundreds or thousands of activists driving around the country in unmarked vans, flinging Monsanto's own wheat seeds into commercial wheat fields right at the beginning of planting season?

Or maybe it was pulled off by little green men from outer space, working in cahoots with Bigfoot, Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster, who all had a planning meeting in a secret underground base on the moon before deciding to focus all their efforts on embarrassing Monsanto by flinging GE wheat seeds everywhere. When they were finished, they then mutilated a few cattle and ran around conducting anal probes on some farmers just to have a little fun.

Yep, little green men did it. Because aliens hate Monsanto.

I mean, I know JFK wasn't shot by a lone assassin. The Oklahoma City bombing was a federal operation (www.ANobleLie.com) and 9/11 was engineered and allowed to happen so that America could be stripped of its liberties and placed under a police state surveillance grid. But all those so-called "conspiracy theories" pale in comparison to the far-fetched loony bin theory of Monsanto which claims some underground group of activists has somehow been storing thousands of pounds of Monsanto's GE wheat seeds since 1995 and has now suddenly started covertly dropping them into farm fields all across the nation. Does Monsanto not get it that anti-GMO activists do NOT want GMO seeds to grow? Planting those seeds in fields all across the country would be the very last thing they'd ever try to do, even if they did have the budgets to bank thousands of pounds of Monsanto seeds in large refrigerators for the last eight years.

The far more likely explanation in all this is that Monsanto's open-field experiments went awry and GE wheat seeds escaped the fields in ways that Monsanto scientists didn't anticipate (or didn't want to anticipate).

Perhaps Monsanto would characterize that as a "conspiracy of Mother Nature." Maybe insects are conspiring against Monsanto to spread the seeds. Maybe the wind, water and other forces of nature are "co-conspirators," according to Monsanto.

The real conspiracy is that Monsanto is trying to dominate the global food supply

Or maybe, just maybe, it's actually Monsanto that's engaged in a massive conspiracy to try to dominate the global food supply by making sure its seeds genetically contaminate all commercial crop fields across America, allowing the company to sue farmers for the "theft" of intellectual property.

They've already done that to a multitude of farmers, by the way, so this isn't some wild theory... it's something that Monsanto has already been involved in.

Yep, there is a conspiracy afoot in all this, but it's not the conspiracy Monsanto wants you to think it is. While the company claims "sabotage" in the Oregon GE wheat fields -- possibly by little green men from outer space -- the greater truth is that Monsanto is itself a corporation of global sabotage that destroys agriculture, contaminates the planet with genetic pollution, threatens farmers with lawsuits for planting common seeds, and then blames activists when its own dangerous experiments go haywire.

QUOTE: (From the NY Daily News 'Tinfoil Hat Source) -


---------------------------------------------------
In a Wednesday conference call with reporters, Monsanto Chief Technology Officer Robb Farley raised the possibility that the stand of genetically engineered wheat discovered in an Oregon field that has threatened U.S. exports of the crop may have been the result of the "purposeful mixing of seed."

QUOTE (Monsanto): "purposeful mixing of seed"

=


__suggestion__ of conspiracy to "mix seed" on the part of Monsanto, by (??) unknown perpetrators.


= CONSPIRACY THEORY.


END RESULT:


Absolutely no difference in reportage NY Daily News vs. NaturalNews


PERIOD.

" Yes, very good points. I see what you mean. " 08.Jun.2013 15:38

well

none of us 'see what you mean'.

( except of course that you're a disinformationalist troll, and spin-shill for Monsanto's agenda, which in their explicit statement about the "purposeful mixing of seed" they are implying a sabotage CONSPIRACY by anti-Monsanto activists -- or some other unnamed/unproven/unidentified persons-or-agency -- to "mix seed" in their GM product )

their own brethern in the GMO markets, huh? But corporations don't do that, do they? Are people out to get them? Well, yeah, and I'm one, though I settle for the simple efficiency of avoiding all GMOs that I can, and that also means beef, pork, and poultry, because a great percentage of the shit goes into feeding animals. Would that someone be an activist actually spreading the shit that they're against into the system? Only a very sick one of the same convoluting mind as these paragons of business. They should invite him to a board meeting and see if he has other useful ideas.

The real danger is in the poisons and agricultural practices connected to these seeds. We seem to forget that the reason for the research and development of these seeds is not to 'feed the world', but creating something resistant to their patented poisons. What comes afterward, such seed control and the seed patents, is just icing on the cake. Europe seems to recognize this much more than the US, and cares that glyposate is found in their water systems and in the bloodstreams of their populations.

Monsanto may not be 'outlaws' in the formal sense of the term, but it may be due more to the fact that we vote for paid mercenaries (and there's not shortage of them) in our governments and courts. I will submit, though, that they should be social outcasts, ostracized for their lack of willing information, their disinformation, as well as their willing corruption of the elected and appointed. We should be concerned because, they, like the financial markets, have been allowed to have our power and exercise control over the social sphere, well outside of their expertise, function, and the realm of reasonable decision-making.

Mike Adams can be over the top, but he's just another of the hangers-on with maybe good intentions making a living from compiling other's reporting through his website.

What are Their Goals? ... 08.Jun.2013 21:27

This is the Key to All Exposures of Any Activity. Good or Bad.

The Most Significant piece of information in this matter is that there was in fact an admitted Contamination and the Source of the Contamination being the Same Source.

First? ...What is the Goal of Contamination?

To render standard Seed Use and Implementation Useless.

Winner? Monsanto.

General Electric is No Angel Either, they are Instrumental and Integral to a Massive Mind Control and Human Manipulation Program.

What are their Combined Goals?

Total Control of the Population. Eliminating Religion. Any Viable Alternatives for Leadership. And to Reduce the World Population by 30% by Any Means Necessary.

If You have reached the Age of 45 to 50 Tears Old and do not hold a Job that is Protected by the State? You are already most likely on a Target List for Euthanasia.

The Death Panel was not only fact, it was the tip of the Ice Berg.

They are Handling this Operation like the Herd Management of Deer Populations, by First Eliminating Male Subject that are still Biologically Viable to Reproduce and Eliminate Job Competition for Younger "More Productive" Laborers at Lower Wages.

They Are Completing this Euthanasia through Irradiation, combined with concerted Economic Disablement, by systematically destroying Target Individuals Social Networking and Communication Capabilities. If That Fails? They will Incorporate Local Sheriff's or Other Law Enforcement to Destroy Your Economic Ability to Survive, making You So Desperate that Crime may become Your Only Opportunity for Source Income. This Leads to Vulnerability to further Incarcerate You or Engage You with Elements that will Result in Your Death.


This is Not a Fucking Joke.
