CARGILL INC.: CORPORATE GREED THREATENS WORLD FOOD SUPPLY
Global Revolution 1: American Revolution 2: Day 34: Communication 1 IronBoltBruce’s Kleptocracy Chronicles: 20 Oct 2011 (g1a2d0034c1)

“Control the oil and you’ll control the nations; control the food and you’ll control the people.” – Henry Kissinger

Part 1 of 5: Cargill: A Threat to Food and Farming

“How does the largest privately owned company in the U.S. impact you? Plenty. You may not realize how much you buy at the grocery store has been imprinted by the agribusiness giant Cargill, but Cargill ingredients are everywhere in your supermarket. There isn’t any Cargill-brand food but its hidden food products are probably on your dinner table tonight.

Cargill’s dominant role in the food system can affect your nutrition, the safety of your food, and the sustainability of food production. Here’s why Cargill matters to shoppers :

* Recalls: Cargill has recalled more than 20 million pounds of beef and poultry products tainted with E. coli and Listeria bacteria, respectively since 2000. This recalled meat has been linked to foodborne illness outbreaks, miscarriages, and several deaths.

* Unsustainable Practices: Cargill has turned a blind eye to environmental destruction and labor abuses taking place as a result of its operations around the world.

* Food Stranglehold: In 2008, high prices for the food that Cargill exported worldwide coincided with low prices for the tropical crops that Cargill purchases – benefiting Cargill – and making the ability to purchase food beyond the reach of many rural communities in developing countries.

Part 2 of 5: Big Food Recalls Once Again Reveal the Hidden Costs of our Big Food System

[4 August 2011] “Cargill, the third largest turkey processor in the United States, is recalling the turkey products because of a strain of bacteria called Salmonella Heidelberg, which has sickened 76 consumers and caused one death. The fact that Salmonella Heidelberg is antibiotic-resistant certainly reinforces the need for ending the overuse of antibiotics in livestock production.

Tracing the contamination back to its source – no easy task when you’re talking about 36 million pounds of processed food distributed to 26 states – has been the task of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in conjunction with USDA and state health agencies. In case you’re wondering how long it takes to figure out where food contamination originated, in this case it took five months since the first reported case of food illness was reported until they linked the public health threat to Cargill’s ground turkey.

Food recalls like this one have become typical in an age of consolidation in agriculture and food – when 58 percent of the poultry market is controlled by the top four firms. Big firms like Cargill brag about their market share in their quarterly reports, but this type of marketplace domination is putting consumers at risk and farmers out of business. There are hidden costs to doing business this big, and one of them is public health. And, we can only rely so much on our federal agencies to provide food safety if their budgets are being cut. They are strained now; what will their challenges be like next year if they have less funding and more responsibility?”

Recalled products include Cargill brands plus private labels like HEB and Kroger:

Part 3 of 5: Cargill Meat Recall Heightens Fears Budgets Cuts Will Weaken Oversight, Threaten Public Health

“More than 3,000 people die a year from food poisoning in the United States, and millions more get sick. Food safety advocates say this latest outbreak shows how budget cuts have hampered the ability of federal and state health agencies to effectively protect public health. We speak with Patty Lovera, assistant director of the food safety group, Food & Water Watch. ‘As Congress comes back this fall…in budget-cutting mode [where] nothing is really sacred, we need to be telling them food safety inspections…are not acceptable places to find these savings,’ Lovera says.”

3 Companies Control 90% of the Beef Industry: Cargill, JBS Swift and Tyson.

4 Companies Control 66% of the Pork Industry: Cargill, JBS Swift and Smithfield, Tyson.

4 Companies Control 60% of the Poultry Industry: JBS Pilgrim’s Pride, Perdue, Sanderson Farms and Tyson.

THE IMPOTENCE OF ELECTIONS

Our Kleptocracy-controlled media focuses on America’s two-year election cycles as if who wins or loses was a matter of life or death, when in fact even at the Presidential level it makes no more difference than who wins on Monday Night Football, American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, or Hillbilly Handfishing. U.S. elections are staged primarily to give Sheeple the illusion of control so they will (a) vent their frustrations and expend their energy, emotions and resources supporting or attacking the Puppet on the Left hand or the Puppet on the Right, and consequently (b) never recognize and challenge the common omnipotent Puppetmaster.

There was no real change in 2008. There was no real change in 2010. There WILL be real change in 2012, but it won’t be coming from tele-brainwashed couch potatoes, manipulated voter lists, rigged voting machines or predetermined ballot counts. It will be coming from us…

LABELS (A POEM OF PROTEST)

“Democrat”, “Republican”,

Puppets both, for sale their votes,
No character or wisdom.

“Liberal”, “Conservative”,
For change or status quo?
Pick either one, the change is none,
All charlatans and whores.

Far “Left” we place the Anarchists,
Libertarians claim far “Right”;
Yet both decry the government:
False continuum brought to light.

For oil, “We” bomb their mud huts,
Strip them bare, then offer “Aid”;
And fake their retribution as
Pretext – a false flag raised.

Unarmed hundred thousands killed
By weapons of “Defense”,
While rights are lost for “Freedom” sake –
On profit, all depends.

With stroke of pen, the “Patriot” Act,
And patriots’ gifts are taken;
Then “Citizens United” leaves
Our citizens forsaken.

We protest loss of liberties,
Put “World Wide Web” to use;
Cloudmark Authority censors us
For “messaging abuse”.

They label us to finger-point,
With labels, “They” deride us;
Their labels keep us all at bay,
For with labels, “They” divide us.

Koch Industries, Keystone XL and Killer Kleptocracy (g1a2d0033c1)

KOCH INDUSTRIES, KEYSTONE XL AND KILLER KLEPTOCRACY
Global Revolution 1: American Revolution 2: Day 33: Communication 1 IronBoltBruce’s Kleptocracy Chronicles: 19 Oct 2011 (g1a2d0033c1)

Koch (pronounced like “Coke”) Industries is a private corporate conglomerate controlled by two brothers – Charles G. and David H. Koch – each of whom own 42% of the company. Diversfied in chemicals and refining along with consumer products and commodity trading, the company’s subsidiaries and brands include many household names such as Georgia-Pacific (Dixie Cups and Tableware) and Invista (Stainmaster Carpets). With over 70,000 employees and over $100 billion in annual revenues, Forbes ranks Koch Industries as the second largest privately-held company in America:

http://tinyurl.com/626tuoe

Worth an estimated $25 billion each, the Koch Brothers share the #4 position on the Forbes list of the 400 richest people in America. Their individual net worths are exceeded only by those of Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Larry Ellison. Forbes also ranks Charles Koch and David Koch among the world’s 68 most powerful people:

http://tinyurl.com/4dena48

http://tinyurl.com/268cvag

The Koch Brothers have wealth, power and an insatiable appetite for more of both. And what they cannot earn through free enterprise, they acquire through other means. Each year they pour millions of dollars into the financing of several “Astroturf” grassroots organizations, and a complete list of the politicians they bankroll at both the national and state level might read like a Who’s Who of American politics, e.g.:

http://tinyurl.com/5w7lgo6

The Koch Brothers play to win. If they can’t win by the rules, then they elect politicians willing to pass (or block) the legislation they need to change the rules. And if they still don’t win, then they just ignore the rules. This shocking 3 October 2011 Bloomberg exposé entitled “Koch Brothers Flout Law Getting Richer With Secret Iran Sales” shows just how far they are willing to go to complete their agenda – which has absolutely nothing to do with making the American people more prosperous, or making our nation a better place to live:

http://tinyurl.com/6doxrfz < – THIS IS A MUST READ

A major item on the Koch Brother’s agenda is garnering all the approvals needed for the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which if built would increase the import of heavy oil from Canadian oil sands to the U.S. by up to 510,000 barrels a day. A 10 February 2011 Reuters release entitled “Koch Brothers Positioned To Be Big Winners If Keystone XL Pipeline Is Approved” disclosed the following:

“Proponents tout [the proposed Keystone XL pipeline] as a boon to national security that would reduce America’s dependence on oil from unfriendly regimes. Opponents say it would magnify an environmental nightmare at great cost and provide only the illusion of national benefit… A SolveClimate News analysis, based on publicly available records, shows that Koch Industries is already responsible for close to 25 percent of the oil sands crude that is imported into the United States, and is well-positioned to benefit from increasing Canadian oil imports… A Koch Industries operation in Calgary, Alberta, called Flint Hills Resources Canada LP, supplies about 250,000 barrels of tar sands oil a day to a heavy oil refinery in Minnesota, also owned by the Koch brothers… Flint Hills Resources Canada also operates a crude oil terminal in Hardisty, Alberta, the starting point of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline… Koch Industries also owns Koch Exploration Canada, L.P., an oil sands-focused exploration company also based in Calgary that acquires, develops and trades petroleum properties.”

“[All] eyes had been on Hillary Clinton and the State Department, which is officially weighing the pipeline permit. The application was cruising toward a swift and barely noticed approval early last year, but the BP oil catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico provoked a closer look as environmental security became a national concern… The 1,959-mile pipeline would cut through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma to refineries in Texas, and crisscross the Ogallala Aquifer, which [millions of] Americans living in the Midwest rely on for fresh drinking water as well as irrigation… Last July, the EPA rolled up its sleeves and called a time out. The agency deemed the State Department’s environmental review of the Keystone project as ‘inadequate,’ the lowest possible ranking. EPA raised concerns over a potential oil spill over the Ogallala aquifer.”

http://tinyurl.com/3e4uqlc

According to Wikipedia, “The Ogallala Aquifer, also known as the High Plains Aquifer, is a vast yet shallow underground water table aquifer located beneath the Great Plains in the United States. One of the world’s largest aquifers, it covers an area of approximately 174,000 sq mi (450,000 sq km) in portions of the eight states of South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas… About 27 percent of the irrigated land in the United States overlies this aquifer system, which yields about 30 percent of the nation’s ground water used for irrigation. In addition, the aquifer system provides drinking water to 82 percent of the people who live within the aquifer boundary.”

http://tinyurl.com/yrz6vh

There is no such thing as an oil pipeline that won’t leak. And when the Keystone XL pipeline starts releasing its toxic contents into our heartland’s lifestream, it will be too late for the American People to say they’d prefer water to Koch.

Royal Dutch Shell: The World’s Dirtiest Oil Company (g1a2d0032c1)

ROYAL DUTCH SHELL: THE WORLD’S DIRTIEST OIL COMPANY
Global Revolution 1: American Revolution 2: Day 32: Communication 1 IronBoltBruce’s Kleptocracy Chronicles: 18 Oct 2011 (g1a2d0032c1)

Part 1 of 3: Ties to the American Legislative Exchange Council

“[Royal Dutch Shell PLC a.k.a. Shell Oil Company a.k.a.] Shell is a corporate member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) as of 2011. G. Edward Pickle, Senior Government Affairs Counsel of Shell Oil Company, is Shell’s representative to ALEC’s Civil Justice Task Force. It was a ‘Chairman’ level sponsor of the 2011 American Legislative Exchange Council Annual Conference, which in 2010, equated to $50,000. Shell also sponsored the Plenary Session speeches on August 4th, 2011, by ALEC ‘scholars’ Arthur B. Laffer and Stephen Moore… ALEC is not a lobby; it is not a front group. It is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, behind closed doors, corporations hand state legislators the changes to the law they desire that directly benefit their bottom line. Along with legislators, corporations have membership in ALEC. Corporations sit on all nine ALEC task forces and vote with legislators to approve ‘model’ bills. They have their own corporate governing board which meets jointly with the legislative board. (ALEC says that corporations do not vote on the board.) They fund almost all of ALEC’s operations. Participating legislators, overwhelmingly conservative Republicans, then bring those proposals home and introduce them in statehouses across the land as their own brilliant ideas and important public policy innovation – without disclosing that corporations crafted and voted on the bills. ALEC boasts that it has over 1,000 of these bills introduced by legislative members every year, with one in every five of them enacted into law. ALEC describes itself as a ‘unique,’ ‘unparalleled’ and ‘unmatched’ organization. It might be right. It is as if a state legislature had been reconstituted, yet corporations had pushed the people out the door. Learn more at http://ALECexposed.org

Part 2 of 3: The Oil Spill the World Forgot

“As the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico continues to dominate headlines around the world, public outrage is being focused more intensely upon BP and its gaffe-prone CEO Tony Hayward. But amidst this crisis, the public should not forget the atrocities committed by other massive oil companies. For example, Royal Dutch Shell’s drilling operations have been spilling oil into the Niger Delta in Nigeria since 1958. Because Nigeria is an impoverished nation and oil revenues fund a majority of government operations, Shell and other companies have been able to drill and pollute without serious oversight for all these years. It is estimated that 13 million barrels of oil have spilled into the delta, making life even more difficult for the region’s destitute residents. Shell blames the constant spills on attacks from “rebels,” who are in fact minority ethnic groups who feel they have been exploited and displaced by foreign oil companies. But Shell would never consider pulling out of the region or finding ways to avoid ethnic strife. Instead, Shell has proceeded with business as usual, and spilled a record 14,000 tons of crude oil into the delta last year [2009].”

http://www.prwatch.org/news/2010/06/9164/oil-spill-world-forgot

Part 3 of 3: Shell’s Big Dirty Secret: Insight into the world’s most carbon intensive oil company

“This new research paper rates the carbon intensity of the top international oil companies, revealing that Shell is now the most carbon intensive oil company in the world based on its total resources. This report documents Shell’s record investment in dirty forms of energy, and it illuminates the corporate strategy and lobbying for regulations that indicate it intends to profit from that position for a long time to come. Our key conclusions are:

* Shell holds more carbon in its resources, per barrel of future oil equivalent, than any other major international oil company. Shell is therefore the world’s most carbon intensive oil company;

* The average carbon intensity of each barrel of oil and gas Shell produces is set to rise dramatically, increasing 85 per cent on today’s figure;

* This sharp increase is caused by Shell’s move into oil sands, its reliance on liquefied natural gas (LNG) and its continued gas flaring in Nigeria;

* Shell continues to expand investments in oil sands and oil shale, relying on the dirtiest technologies to establish itself as a leader in the industry;

* Shell has stopped its investments in renewables, except for biofuels, which pose a whole new set of environmental problems;

* Internal documents obtained in the discovery process of Wiwa v. Shell reveal that although Shell could have ended gas flaring in the early ’90’s, it decided it was more profitable not to;

* Shell continues to flare gas in Nigeria at levels which, according to its own figures, are only 12% less than those of 1999 after accounting for the reductions due to community unrest;

* Because of all of the above, Shell is more vulnerable to carbon pricing and subject to greater carbon risk than its peers.

* Therefore, Shell is leading industry lobby efforts in Washington, Brussels, and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to weaken and neuter legislation and regulation to tackle climate change.”
