In response to a popular thread that’s been going on between myself and my readers, the talk of a “Food Book” or otherwise known as “The Codex Alimentarius”, is a book of regulations the United Nations are using to monitor and regulate foodstuffs around the planet.
But it’s not as simple as that. There are people who see the “Codex” as an infringement on their rights to grow organic food and herbs, thus giving the pharmaceutical industry carte blanche to peddle genetically engineered drugs and other unsavory concoctions all over the globe:
Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) has two committees which impact nutrition.
One of them, the “Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses” (CCNFSDU), is chaired by Dr. Rolf Grossklaus, a physician who believes that nutrition has no role in health. This is the “top-guy” for Codex nutritional policy, and he has stated that “nutrition is not relevant to health”.
As unbelievable as it may sound, Dr. Grossklaus actually declared nutrients to be toxins in 1994 and instituted the use of toxicology (Risk Assessment) to prevent nutrients from having any impact on humans who take supplements! It is worth mentioning that Dr. Grossklaus happens to own the Risk Assessment company advising CCNFSDU and Codex on this issue. This company makes money when its toxicology services are used for the “assessment” of nutrients. Here in the U.S. we call that a “conflict of interest”.
Codex is made up of thousands of standards and guidelines. One of them, the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline (VMG), is designed to permit only ultra low doses of vitamins and minerals (and make clinically effective nutrients illegal). How can the VMG restrict dosages of vitamins and minerals? By using Risk Assessment (toxicology) to assess nutrients.
While Risk Assessment is a legitimate science (it is a branch of toxicology), it is the wrong science for assessing nutrients! In fact, in this context, it is actually junk science. Biochemistry, the science of life processes, is the correct science for assessing nutrients. Codex Alimentarius treats nutrients as toxins, which is literally insane.
Nutrients are not toxins – they are essential for life. (link)
I was shocked when I read this. How the hell can nutrients be classified as toxins?
When taken in the context of control by Big Pharma, it makes a whole lot of sense.
Some folks in Europe see a more ominous and dangerous pattern behind The Codex. One such individual is Ian R. Crane, a former British government official. His claim that “If Codex Alimentarius has its way, then herbs, vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies, amino acids and other natural remedies you have taken for granted most of your life will be gone…” resonates with the organic food people all over.
His website is here . Now he might come across as any other NWO conspiracy money-grubbing huckster like Alex Jones, but he does make valid points and forewarnings.
He is also interviewed on Red Ice Creations often and is part of the European Alternative View II conference on May 29th to the 31st, of which there will be discussion on many subjects, the Codex Alimentarius included.
The Alternative View II (podcast)
How is everyone doing this week? Still have a bank account? Company retirement? 401K? Stocks? Piles of worthless paper?
To be honest, I haven’t had the balls to check my 401K at work, I think the shock would give me a stroke!
Not that it would matter, with my luck a stroke wouldn’t kill me outright, just paralyze me. And with the US Government printing presses running 24/7 to make enough Monopoly money in order to “bail out” banks and financial institutions, the idea that Social Security will be funded when the Japanese and Chinese start calling in their markers is just ludicrous.
So begging for alms looks like a real possibility for poor, disabled folk in the near future.
Great, isn’t it?
Very real possibility. But, if we keep printing funny money non-stop to keep Wall Street consolidating into ever larger and larger monstrosities, the world might not allow us to drop forever into the blackhole sewer, because we would either start WWIII, or drag the rest of the planet down the economic crapper with us according to Benjamin Fulford in this article.
And because the theory of “decoupling” ( disentanglement from various economies ) is proving to be so much bullshit as the UK and China start to experience the “pain” of the US with its over-inflated values of property and bogus fiat paper floating all over the planet:
Even in the case where the direct effect is small — the decoupling assumption — the U.S. slowdown still can have a substantial net impact on European exports because of its indirect effect on Asian imports from Europe.
So Europeans should not be tempted to think that they are somehow “decoupled” from America’s foibles and woes. Until recently, many Europeans thought they were insulated from the current U.S. housing and mortgage crisis. But in what has been a truly malignant “export” from America to Europe, the U.S. created “garbage debt” in the form of sub-prime mortgages, and Europeans — hungry for extra yield, and as reckless as Americans — bought it. Many European banks’ balance sheets are now as contaminated as those of American banks, and no one is sure who is holding — or hiding — the junk, and how to value it.
This is why European banks are now reluctant to lend to each other. They could be lending to an institution that is in serious financial trouble.
It is hard to imagine that higher interest rates and reduced credit availability will not lead to distress for Europe’s overall economy. Yet this is exactly the stance of the European Central Bank, which is treating the euro zone as if its financial sector was somehow decoupled from the rest of the economy — and running a different monetary policy for each sector at the same time.
By pumping in whatever liquidity the financial sector needs to alleviate the credit crunch, the ECB is effectively maintaining a deflationary bias for the financial sector, whereas it has announced an inflationary bias for the rest of the economy.
A monetary policy at war with itself cannot long endure…

Which is exactly what happened in the Eurozone these past two weeks as word of impending financial insolvency of Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae became apparent and word of Lehman Brother’s bankruptcy got around, all of Europe’s markets panicked, not just one or two. As soon as they got word the US government were either directly bailing out or loaning money to these places, the panic eased some.
And so it happened once again this week shortly after Lehman Brothers, AIG started to go belly-up. Thus, the Federal printing presses are cranking up full speed to loan Monopoly money to AIG.
So what can we take from all of this?
1.) Washington ’s Three Stooges:
Greenspan and Bernanke have not been alone in what will surely be remembered as America ’s Financial Apocalypse – the eventful period ushering in a decade-long depression, as predicted in my 2006 book by the same title. Certainly, President Bush did not create these trends. But his financial irresponsibility has accelerated their magnitude. In less than eight years, he has managed to increase the national debt by 90%. As the data shows, not only has he led the worst recovery since the post-WWII era, he has also positioned his successor with budget shortfalls for many years to come due to Part D Medicare, the Iraq War, and his tax cuts for the wealthy.
Combined with the staggering deficits for Medicare and Social Security , America ’s economy will be in the gutter for many years to come even after the banking and real estate troubles cool down. No one else is talking about these issues because they’re wrapped up in the daily drama. But save this article and others I’ve written because I’ve been mentioning the longer-term problems ever since writing my book. In a few years, more people will begin to address these issues once they are transformed into daily drama.
2.) President Bush’s attempts at a recovery:
…have been so horrendous they’ve actually led to the current recession, which will turn out to be the worst in decades. I would venture to guess he is desperately pleading with officials to come up with even more gimmicks to hide the full realities of the economy so the worst will be reported only after he leaves office. But I will guarantee you if Washington and the Fed continue this reckless game of applying band aids instead of letting things play out, we will see a much bigger crisis down the road, similar to what happened after Greenspan tried to mitigate the dotcom collapse. You can bet this is going to happen because Washington does not understand the meaning of preemption.
Altogether, we have had eight years of no gains in real median wages, flat stock market returns, and minimal net new jobs. Despite what you have heard, after adjusting for debt spending, population growth and realistic adjustments to the GDP deflator, there have only been 3 or 4 quarters of GDP growth since 2005. If you adjust for military, government and minimum wage positions – i.e. jobs funded by tax payers and jobs that don’t pay anything – there have been absolutely no net new jobs. Bush’s largest gains have been with inflation, oil and food prices, debt, trade deficits, bankruptcies, foreclosures, and healthcare costs. If an assembly of the world’s leading economic strategists were to design the most destructive economic disaster possible, they could not match the results of Bush’s tenure. Even the most loyal Bush supporters will admit he has been an absolute disaster – that is if they’re being honest. America is now more dependent on foreign nations than ever – not only for oil, but also credit and manufactured goods.
3.) America ’s “Resilient” Economy:
Many of the pundits flood the propaganda networks with repeated denials of the problems, boasting how resilient the U.S. economy is. You know who they are. I’m not quite sure what they’ve been smoking. But it appears to be some sort of hallucinogen because they seem to expect Superman to bend the economy back into shape. Ladies and Gentlemen, in case mommy never told you, there is no Santa Claus and there is no Superman. And if you think Bernanke’s printing presses have an endless supply of ink and paper, just wait until the real crisis appears. So you had better get ready because it’s coming. It is virtually inescapable. And it’s going to cause devastation around the globe. Of course I’m taking about the likely implosion of the CDS market.
Let’s take a look at America ’s “resilient economy.” Let’s see…the entire financial system is in the process of blowing up. Already there have been over $500 billion in bank losses, with over $1 trillion more to come. Over one dozen banks have failed, with hundreds on deck. A handful of large hedge funds have blown up, with hundreds more on the way. Already, over $1 trillion has been transferred from the Fed to the banking cartel. But I estimate another $1.5 trillion will be needed to maintain liquidity as banks de-leverage over the next few years. Unemployment is now over 6% and inflation is over 5%, even with Washington ’s manipulation of the data. Virtually every metric in the housing market is at multi-decade lows, except for foreclosures which are hitting new highs.
Taxpayers are now on the hook for billions of dollars of potentially worthless debt held by Fannie and Freddie. It’s now official. America ’s free market economy is really a socialist system for corporations. One could argue this to be a form of Fascism. My best estimate for losses due to the Fannie and Freddie taxpayer bailout are between $200 to $500 billion. The worst case scenario would be $800 billion. If this economy is resilient, I can’t wait to see how it magically bounces back. When Superman fails to show up, Washington might consider giving David Copperfield a call. But this would be one illusion he won’t be able to pull off. Get the popcorn ready.
So there you have it. Ain’t too pretty, is it?
I think this is going too fast for the Builderburglers to keep up with, the victim…er…patient has severed an artery instead of a vein and it’s in danger of bleeding to death.
And guess what, China wasn’t ready enough yet to take the reins of world economic super-power.
Too bad, so sad as Highwayman is wont to say.
So you say you don’t believe there’s an NWO, Bilderberger, Trilateral Commission or Council of Foreign Relations or any form of shadow government running anything? That’s your right I suppose.
But unless you’re a billionaire or work for the oil companies and the military-industrial-congressional complex, you’re resigned to a pretty shitty life for the coming decade if you didn’t prepare right.
Had enough yet?
On June 5, 1873, in a letter to The Times, Sir Francis Galton, the cousin of Charles Darwin and a distinguished African explorer in his own right, outlined a daring (if by today’s standards utterly offensive) new method to ‘tame’ and colonise what was then known as the Dark Continent.
‘My proposal is to make the encouragement of Chinese settlements of Africa a part of our national policy, in the belief that the Chinese immigrants would not only maintain their position, but that they would multiply and their descendants supplant the inferior Negro race,’ wrote Galton.
‘I should expect that the African seaboard, now sparsely occupied by lazy, palavering savages, might in a few years be tenanted by industrious, order-loving Chinese, living either as a semidetached dependency of China, or else in perfect freedom under their own law.’

Despite an outcry in Parliament and heated debate in the august salons of the Royal Geographic Society, Galton insisted that ‘the history of the world tells the tale of the continual displacement of populations, each by a worthier successor, and humanity gains thereby’.
A controversial figure, Galton was also the pioneer of eugenics, the theory that was used by Hitler to try to fulfil his mad dreams of a German Master Race.
Eventually, Galton’s grand resettlement plans fizzled out because there were much more exciting things going on in Africa.
But that was more than 100 years ago, and with legendary explorers such as Livingstone, Speke and Burton still battling to find the source of the Nile – and new discoveries of exotic species of birds and animals featuring regularly on newspaper front pages – vast swathes of the continent had not even been ‘discovered’.
Yet Sir Francis Galton, it now appears, was ahead of his time. His vision is coming true – if not in the way he imagined. An astonishing invasion of Africa is now under way.
In the greatest movement of people the world has ever seen, China is secretly working to turn the entire continent into a new colony.
Reminiscent of the West’s imperial push in the 18th and 19th centuries – but on a much more dramatic, determined scale – China’s rulers believe Africa can become a ’satellite’ state, solving its own problems of over-population and shortage of natural resources at a stroke.
With little fanfare, a staggering 750,000 Chinese have settled in Africa over the past decade. More are on the way.
The strategy has been carefully devised by officials in Beijing, where one expert has estimated that China will eventually need to send 300 million people to Africa to solve the problems of over-population and pollution.
The plans appear on track. Across Africa, the red flag of China is flying. ( Link )
It seems that China has been busy doing things other than financing Bu$hco’s little escapade in the Middle East. It looks like it’s been very, very profitable for them too.
The African continent has been raped, pillaged and plundered for over two hundred years and it looks like there’s no end in sight. The ongoing genocide of black Africans and other groups is appalling and history will condemn us for condoning it.
And we’ll deserve every bit of it.
“There are several curious things about these Pilgrims functions. In the first place there is present at these dinners an array of notables such as it would be difficult to bring together under one roof for any other purpose and by any other society… Among the guests were John D. Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan, Thomas W. Lamont and other members of the House of Morgan… We are entitled to know what the Pilgrim Society is, what it stands for, and who these powerful Pilgrims are that can call out the great to hear a British Ambassador expound to Americans the virtues of a united democratic front.”
– John T. Whiteford asking very reasonable questions in his 1940 pamphlet ‘Sir Uncle Sam: Knight of the British Empire’.
“[The aim of the international bankers was] nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”
– Professor Carroll Quigley, ‘Tragedy & Hope’, p. 324. Can the Pilgrims, which Quigley never mentioned, verify his story of an Anglo-American Establishment?

Most people have at least vaguely heard of the “Eastern Establishment”. This is a reference to a group of people in the Northeast of the United States which to many appears to wield a disproportionate amount of influence over the nation’s politics. This influence, which goes back even further than the days of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. and J. P. Morgan, Sr. has been illustrated by the fact that a great number of individuals working in the senior positions of government have come from a number of New York-based banks, insurance companies and law firms, only to return to this group of banks and businesses after their public term came to an end. Often these individuals served in more than one administration, and together with a number of other peculiarities – think of controversial policies, suspected cover ups, ignored conflicts of interest, lack of media attention, etc. – some people have become suspicious of what at times appears to be almost like a permanent government. A 1962 newspaper column voiced these suspicions best:
“There is an establishment in the United States. The word “establishment” is a general term for the power elite in international finance, business, the professions largely from the Northeast, who wield most of the power regardless of who is in the White House.
“Most people are unaware of the existence of this “legitimate Mafia.” Yet the power of the establishment makes itself felt from the professor who seeks a foundation grant, to the candidate for a cabinet post or State Department job. It affects the nation’s policies in almost every area.
“For example, the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City, subsidized by Rockefeller interests since 1927 boasts a membership of at least 90 per cent establishment figures.”
This isn’t any different than what’s been put out there before, only more proof that there’s been a ruling elite of banking interests running the political scene for quite a long while. It’s also very natural for a child ( US ) to be like its parent ( UK ), so a relationship like this should come as no surprise.
This little idea was confirmed to me a couple of weeks ago when I was watching CNBC2’s World Wide Exchange program while getting ready for work and the British financial analyst made an offhand remark to the American analyst about the US taking up the “family business” and that the UK was proud of its “child”.
The American didn’t disagree. Which family business were they talking about? The world financial system, empire building or both?
In my continuing quest for esoteric knowledge, I utilize many resources. Websites and online libraries are my primary sources. Recently podcasts on various parapolitical/paranormal blogs have become a valuable finding. Of course one must be careful when using these things due to the varying agendas of the individual(s) running these sites. The old cliche ‘gleaning seed from the chaff’ applies applicably when surfing the InnerTubes.
But because of the very existence of the ‘Tubes, much to the Order’s dismay, the exposure of their cruel and despotic plans for the future of humanity have spread through the ether that otherwise would’ve been relegated to the back alleys of underground publications. This still could happen if the Bilderbergs and the Pentagon have their way in the short future, but that’s for another day. Fortunately for the time being, we still have this valuable resource.
One discovery I just made, and it probably is old news to some of my readers, is the Codex Alimentarius. Sound ominous? It’s meant to be. But all it means is ‘Food Code’ or ‘Food Book’ in Greek. By using the Greek name, the Order has made sure the publication sounds ‘difficult’ in the average person’s mind so they would just ignore it. And it works. The Codex was started in the 1960s under the auspices of the U.N. and the WHO. Innocently enough, it was to, “…protect the health of consumers and ensure fair practices in the international food trade. The Codex Alimentarius is recognized by the World Trade Organization as an international reference point for the resolution of disputes concerning food safety and consumer protection…“.
That’s fair I guess. But like all things that start out helping people originally, it was co-opted by people whose sole purpose is to cause chaos, gain personal power, create a stratified society, control food production and just make an everyday person’s life a living hell because they can.
One person who decided to expose this evil plan to control the food and drug production by the mega-agribusinesses and ‘Big Pharma’ is Ian R. Crane. Mr Crane, according to his blog bio is, “…an ex-oilfield executive who has lived and worked in the Middle East, mainland Europe and the USA, Ian has spent the past ten years studying mythology, alternative history, secret societies, esotericism, … and deep geopolitics…“. He doesn’t sound like the typical weird tinfoiler does he? Yours truly included of course.
Crane has done much research into the Codex and its relationship to the Order. His writing is clear and unobtrusive. And he connects the breadcrumbs very well:
Few people would argue that the 21st Century has been uneventful, yet the vast majority stay locked in a paradigm of ‘bread and circuses’; working increasingly long hours in response to spiralling costs and lulled into indifference by daily doses of Eastenders, Corrie, Big Brother or Sport.
Consequently, few people will be aware that on 15th May 2007, just six weeks before being appointed Prime Minister, Gordon Brown joined ranks with George Bush Snr by publicly stating his commitment to the political philosophy of globalisation and the establishment of a New World Order.
So what does all this have to do with Natural Health? Part of the New World Order agenda is to restrict and ultimately prohibit the sale of all natural health products. According to John Hammell, a legislative advocate and the founder of International Advocates for Health Freedom (IAHF), here is what we have to look forward to:
“If Codex Alimentarius has its way, then herbs, vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies, amino acids and other natural remedies you have taken for granted most of your life will be gone. The name of the game for Codex is to shift all remedies into the prescription category so they can be controlled exclusively by the medical monopoly and its bosses, the major pharmaceutical firms.”
However, this is just the tip of the iceberg; behind the Codex Alimentarius Commission are the United Nations and the World Health Organization, working in conjunction with the multinational pharmaceutical cartel and international banks. It is now a criminal offence in parts of Europe to sell herbs as foods. An agreement called EEC6565 equates selling herbs as foods to selling other illegal drugs. Action is being taken to accelerate bringing other European countries into ‘harmonisation’.
Not to mention using this as a method of population control. When this ‘Codex’ becomes international law on December 2009, all organic foods and herbs become illegal. If any food that isn’t grown by agribusiness, or any drug that isn’t manufactured by a pharmaceutical company is sold, severe fines and or prison is the punishment. Any farmer who doesn’t use the genetically engineered ‘suicide’ seeds sold by Monsanto, Dow Chemical or Bayer will be fined and sued. Individuals growing medicinal and psychoactive herbs will be arrested, jailed and fined. How’s that for Brave New World? Are you ready for it?
There is a little known story about the United State’s ongoing brutality and experimentation on the Iraqi people. In 2004, the U.S. controlled puppet ‘government’ was forced to pass a law making saving seeds from a previous harvest illegal for farmers to use. Any farmer who still wished to farm their land had to purchase Monsanto’s GM suicide seeds. Of course, there are NWO banksters there to ‘loan’ money to these poor farmers.
No conspiracy, move along, nothing to see here, just ‘spreading democracy’ through the Middle East to ‘proteck ‘Muurrikkka” from evul turrists!
I believe my wife used that brand of ‘spreading democracy’ in her flower garden this spring.
As far as I know, it’s still legal to grow petunias, lillies and tulips.

As a side note, I will be engaged in family activities and business the rest of this Memorial Day Weekend.
One must remember that at one time, the United States of America was an actual Republic and many people did give their lives in defense of the values we once had. They should be suitably honored.
And even if you have the take that people since the American Civil War who joined the military were working for the Rothschild and Rockefeller criminal organizations to form the American Empire don’t deserve to be honored, I leave you with these words from Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler:
My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military.
Sad, but true. And I speak from personal experience like Butler does.
But here’s my favorite Butler quote:
War is a racket. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.
Wisdom learned late is better than not learned at all I say. So please honor all vets this Memorial Day, even the non-American vets.
Remember, the NWO doesn’t distinguish its cannon-fodder.
P.S. Regularly scheduled far-out brain farts resume Tuesday May 27th. Peace.
Here is a little piece from Benjamin Fulford at the Project Camelot site:
We asked Benjamin Fulford for a status report on the current state of affairs regarding whether there had been any change as a direct result of the public stand he took speaking out on behalf of the Asian Secret Society about the world situation. In answer, he wrote the following in an email dated today:
For the reaction, you will notice that Asian countries have stopped buying US government bonds. The US secret government has retaliated by artificially raising food and oil prices.
We are in the middle of World War 3. The US and Israel have been taken over by Nazis and the rest of the world is trying to take them down.
The reason the society has not started assassinations yet is that the Nazis in the Bush/Clinton administration want any excuse to start all out world war. However, if starvation begins in earnest, there will be assassinations.
I haven’t been a fan of Benjamin Fulford lately, he talks a big game, but no results. Assuming the above statement is true, why hasn’t there been a true decoupling of the Chinese economy from the U.S., or the yuan from the dollar?
IMHO I believe Fulford to be a Rothschilds disinformation agent. This bears continuous watching.
On the other hand, there’s this news item:
Giant agribusinesses are enjoying soaring earnings and profits out of the world food crisis which is driving millions of people towards starvation, The Independent on Sunday can reveal. And speculation is helping to drive the prices of basic foodstuffs out of the reach of the hungry.
The prices of wheat, corn and rice have soared over the past year driving the world’s poor – who already spend about 80 per cent of their income on food – into hunger and destitution.
The World Bank says that 100 million more people are facing severe hunger. Yet some of the world’s richest food companies are making record profits. Monsanto last month reported that its net income for the three months up to the end of February this year had more than doubled over the same period in 2007, from $543m (£275m) to $1.12bn. Its profits increased from $1.44bn to $2.22bn.
Cargill’s net earnings soared by 86 per cent from $553m to $1.030bn over the same three months. And Archer Daniels Midland, one of the world’s largest agricultural processors of soy, corn and wheat, increased its net earnings by 42 per cent in the first three months of this year from $363m to $517m. The operating profit of its grains merchandising and handling operations jumped 16-fold from $21m to $341m.
Similarly, the Mosaic Company, one of the world’s largest fertiliser companies, saw its income for the three months ending 29 February rise more than 12-fold, from $42.2m to $520.8m, on the back of a shortage of fertiliser. The prices of some kinds of fertiliser have more than tripled over the past year as demand has outstripped supply. As a result, plans to increase harvests in developing countries have been hit hard.
Cargill’s 86% jump in profits is truly an insane evil, to be outdone only by the oil megacorps’ profits the first quarter of this year.
The be priced out of getting heat and electricity can be life threatening in its own right, especially during the winter months in the North East. It can be survivable during the spring or summer though, I’ve known people who have done it.
But to purposely price the daily life from literally hundreds of millions of people is not only a crime, but a true evil only equalled by the likes of Bu$h, Clinton, Pol Pot, Mugabe, the Junta in Burma, the Chinese Technocrats and other lower dezinens of the NWO.
Could the Myanmar junta and the Chinese be victims in their own right via the ‘natural’ disasters that have been hitting their nations recently by senior NWO members HAARP technology? Unknown.
And do these recent events give Fulford credibility? The waters are murky in this regard and bear further diligence.
