With Nation Distracted by Public Health and Economic Crises, Trump Moves to Allow GMO Crops in Wildlife Refuges

Just so we realize that trump isn’t smart enough to generate these stupid moves. It’s his selfish cabinet, staff, and family crazies. Trump likely is so proud of his signature, that he doesn’t even know what he’s signing.

Since corporations make way more on our labor than we are paid, by doing nothing the corporate structure will die before we do. We can shed the corporate virus the way we defend against corona virus

Just as the virus dies off when it can’t get at us to feed on us, same with corporations…

I have no choice but to feel sorry for you because you can be led by the nose and be easily manipulated. Hitler would have liked you.
And Henry Kissinger would like you, as well as the rabid congress that just committed several genocides with Feinstein sitting on her perch. Richard Blum) is one of the more controversial companies to have scored big-time Iraq war money. That’s because Blum’s wife, Senator Dianne Feinstein, appears to have used her seat on the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee to steer the $650 million environmental cleanup deal in his favor. Screw anybody that calls out anti-semitism while justice is skewed. And by the way you are right not only gypsies, but 70 not just 6 million perished. Too bad your feeling sorry for anyone, feel sorry for yourself because calling a citizen anti-semite doesn’t necessarily make evil leaders non existent. She is one. Soul? Please tell were you in the streets when the middle east exploded? Were you in her office pleading for youth and telling her what the troops coming home were saying? Or were you sucking D at the ADL.

Sounds like an accountant not a leader. “Don’t count on anything” Piss off, they will be put to work soon as a bankrupt country couldn’t give them the world. They will be forced to work for US>

For clarity’s sake, were clarity actually your intent, it is customary to put words being repeated in quotes. I’ll reiterate by illustration. You said - “Feinstein is a sicko, her greed is why Jews suffered in the Holocaust.” I find your despicable anti-semitism pathetic and you would do well to not represent your chosen causes as your ignorance very likely turns people off to any causes that you promote.

Evidently you need help understanding my statement which went beyond your evidently simplistic and unsavory perception of history. I pointed out that there were two ‘peoples’ selected for torture and extermination in the camps. Along with six million Jews there were a half million Gypsies that perished in the genocide. The Gypsies were utterly impoverished and greed played no place in their selection. It was hate.

You do no good for any cause that you may believe in by espousing hatred and a sickening lack of concern for crimes committed against innocent people probably before you were even born. Your soul’s eyes have been blinded by hatred. It is something to be ashamed of.

You clarify nothing, and you surely are not competent to help anyone understand what is a lie. Good thing those soviets helped>The brave Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the famous Russian writer who has been called the “Conscience of the 20th Century,” served eight long years in the Soviet Gulag prison system. Today, he is hated by top-level Jews in America and around the world because he exposed the Jewish leadership of the genocide of 66 million Communist Gulag victims. Many victims were Christians.
I have quit being involved in causes>however hatred is not within me, even through the lies of men and their obvious devolution of progress, life, and “soul” are something all men should be ashamed of>

PS where are all those movies about gypsies?

You don’t like to think that you are the kind of person that hates but your hatred comes out even if you won’t admit that that is you. Think about a blindness that lets you hate people who were murdered long before you were even born. Nevertheless you hate them. What do you call that? You just want to present yourself as someone who doesn’t hate but your hate has made you blind to what you are really like. The eyes of your soul have become blinded by your hate and being blind, you just don’t see it.

Using the links provided in the article, and then following other links therein, I deduce that this is not something that Congress votes on, but something that the appointed officials, within the Dept. of the Interior, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), decide.

The Obama Administration’s 2014 USFWS directive, to phase out genetically engineered crops (GEC’s) on all national wildlife refuges, was reversed by the Trump administration in 2018.

Apparently, right now, the Director of the USFWS is Trump nominee, Aurelia Skipwith, who previously spent six years working at Monsanto, where her role included bringing new products to market, and at Gage International, an anti-environmental lobbying firm, where she served as Senior Advisior, and her husband was employed as a lobbyist. Gage International lobbied against, among other things, the Endangered Species Act. Skipwith was confirmed by the US Senate in 2019.

For the current proposal, which states that wildlfe can only be sustained by the use of GEC’s, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has prepared a draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA) for the potential use of genetically engineered crops (GEC’s) on national wildlife refuges in the southeastern United States. The Service is soliciting public comment on the draft PEA until April 10, 2020.

Comments and questions must be submitted in writing to fw4_gmcpea@fws.gov or mailed to Pamala Wingrove, Branch Chief, Conservation Planning, USFWS, Southeast Region, 1875 Century Boulevard NE, Atlanta, GA, 30345.

They’re offering an “informational” webinar on April 6-7. The times are 1p.m. EDT on April 6, and 7 p.m. EDT on April 7.

For more information and to download a copy of the draft PEA contact:

Opposing this directive are these two groups:

The Center for Biological Diversity, a national, nonprofit conservation organization with more than 1.6 million members and online activists dedicated to the protection of endangered species and wild places.

Center for Food Safety, whose mission is to empower people, support farmers, and protect the earth from the harmful impacts of industrial agriculture. Through groundbreaking legal, scientific, and grassroots action, they protect and promote your right to safe food and the environment.

Please wereaflea enlighten me with truth. You see we in the US don’t call it murder we call it collateral damage. If you had insight you would realize my comment defends the poor Jews who died during WW2 at the expense of the wealthy. ADL is anti-defamation-league>It defends against anti-semitism while promoting wars on the majority of semites in the middle-east. Yes Muslims are semites too.

What about “wildlife refuge” does he not understand? Or have I been tricked into believing there was any meaningful wildlife refuge to begin with?

Verdad. Aguacate en Espanol.

The Anti-Defamation League, [a far-left social justice group which advocates for online censorship in the name of "fighting antisemitism, is pushing for congress to give them a federal bailout due to the coronavirus.
