Ready for America's Holodomor? Stalin starved MILLIONS of his own people (kulaks) when they refused to collectivize their farms (among other things.) The Gunny got a tip on this one, Senate Bill 510, from Farmer John (Kudos).


(a) Authorities- In carrying out the duties of the Administrator and the purposes of this Act, the Administrator shall have the authority, with respect to food production facilities, to:

(1) visit and inspect food production facilities in the United States and in foreign countries to determine if they are operating in compliance with the requirements of the food safety law;
(2) review food safety records as required to be kept by the Administrator under section 210 and for other food safety purposes;
(3) set good practice standards to protect the public and animal health and promote food safety;
(4) conduct monitoring and surveillance of animals, plants, products, or the environment, as appropriate;
(5) collect and maintain information relevant to public health and farm practices.

(b) Inspection of Records- A food production facility shall permit the Administrator upon presentation of appropriate credentials and at reasonable times and in a reasonable manner, to have access to and ability to copy all records maintained by or on behalf of such food production establishment in any format (including paper or electronic) and at any location, that are necessary to assist the Administrator:

(1) to determine whether the food is contaminated, adulterated, or otherwise not in compliance with the food safety law; or
(2) to track the food in commerce.

(c) Regulations- Not later than 1 year after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Administrator, in consultation with the Secretary of Agriculture and representatives of State departments of agriculture, shall promulgate regulations to establish science-based minimum standards for the safe production of food by food production facilities. Such regulations shall:

(1) consider all relevant hazards, including those occurring naturally,and those that may be unintentionally or intentionally introduced;

(2) require each food production facility to have a written food safety plan that describes the likely hazards and preventive controls implemented to address those hazards;

(3) include with respect to growing, harvesting, sorting,and storage operations, minimum standards related to fertilizer use, nutrients, hygiene, packaging, temperature controls, animal encroachment… and water;


(d) SMALL ENTITY COMPLIANCE POLICY GUIDE.- Not later than 180 days after the issuance of the regulations promulgated under subsection (m) of section 418 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (as added by subsection (a)), the Secretary shall issue a small entity compliance policy guide setting forth in plain language the requirements of such section 418 and this section to assist small entities in complying with the hazard analysis and other activities required under such section 418 and this Section.

Small entities = small farms, gardens, hobby farmers who sell at farmer's markets, etc.

National Health Freedom stated: "It is a dangerously broad regulatory bill giving extensive discretionary power to the FDA over the entire food supply chain without proper checks and balances to avoid abuse of power."

Naturally is was sponsored by fascists like DICK "Turban" Durban and noted ProgStats like:

1. Roland Burris [D-IL]
2. Christopher Dodd [D-CT] (Countryside sweet deal guy)
3. Kirsten Gillibrand [D-NY]
4. Thomas Harkin [D-IA]

but worse yet there are the RINOs on this bandwagon.

Lamar Alexander [R-TN]
Richard Burr [R-NC]
Saxby Chambliss [R-GA]
Michael Enzi [R-WY]
Judd Gregg [R-NH]
Orrin Hatch [R-UT]
John Isakson [R-GA]

This is how it ALL STARTS, incrementally speaking. Call your Senators and tell them HELL NO on this and if you can, time to start buying Heirloom seeds before the Federal Colossus makes owning seeds ILLEGAL!

Amazing, they refuse to seal the border between Mex/US but they're REALLY concerned with Joe Schmoe growing veggies on HIS property and saving seeds for next year's planting. Oh, and Dumbass Dingell proposed HR 2749, which gives the Feds the power to prohibit the movement of any and all foods into or out of a given area (Section 133b). All for the "global" market (wink-wink). Isn't Dingell a member of the Progressive Caucus?

Hmmm. Don't like the Feds? Don't want to follow the sheep? Don't like the ATF? ObamaKare? High taxes? Why, we'll just starve you into compliance. And NOTHING has been said about this on the Lamestream Media.

"We must crush the kulaks, wipe them out."


  1. I already called my two Senators, they voted against it. But it's coming to the floor, this vote was for cloture. I asked how in the world something this stupid and intrusive could have made it tthough cloture. The poor little staffer(Inhoff's) of course didn't know, so I just thanked her very much, and she said she would pass my words along.
    My daughter and I were just talking about getting Heirlooms, and store them.(great minds think alike)
    I was about to come onto your site, and tell you about it, and you were already on top of it. I should have known you would be on it.

    I am enraged!!!!
    I want to know if this can be stopped should it pass today!!!This is communism. Wars have started over things like this!!
    The little man doesn't stand a chance with these people! vote every one of them OUT!!

  2. Nanna,

    Pretty crazy stuff and as I stated, it all starts with the camel's nose in the tent and then his ass in your face!

  3. oh yeah Gunny,
    Now the govt. is wanting to scramble your cell phone when you are driving!!

    Where is our constitution???

  4. Soylent Green,

    here we come.

    Solves what to do with us older folk.

  5. Pack Rat,

    They just bypassed the death panels and went straight to the holodomor part.

    I'm buying heriloom seeds for this spring and NO ONE is telling me what I can or can't grow (veggies).

  6. Gunny maybe Im missing something here, where is the bill that is prohibiting people from growing their own veggies or keeping and reusing seeds? Not being condescending, just need to get up to speed with the rest of the class here, cause that does sounds like absolute BS if its true. But the bill you have posted here doesnt seem that bad, from what I read it is very similar to the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) regulations I had to follow as while running a fishing business and selling my products at farmers markets. It was not was not as restrictive as it sounds it actually helped me understand how I could produce a safer product for my customers. If I am wrong let me know, but this bill doesnt seem to restrict farmers from doing business, what I took from it was they just want stricter health and safety standards from them. How does this fit into the communist reference you made above?

  7. frankie, section (d) sums it up. Small entities. If I grow veggies in a plot and sell them at a farmer's market for example, then I have to deal with this regulation crap!

    This is what Stalin did to the kulaks. He forced collectivism on them and when they revolted, he murdered about 10 million of them.

    Ask yourself, why is Monsanto involved in this bill? As with all things liberal, follow the money.

  8. This regulation crap is only meant to help people produce a safe product for their customers. They are not forcing the farmers to do anything unreasonable, all they are asking for is for them to keep temperature logs, packing logs and things of that nature. I dont see the connection between asking farmers to keep safety logs and the consolidation of farmlands from private farmers to the ownership of the soviet union. And as far as this Monsanto character, what would be in it for him? Where would the money being generated from this bill come from? I didnt read about a tax included which would be passed on from the farmer to the government.

  9. Since Monsanto is one of the largest agribusiness firms,I'm not surprised they are pushing this as well as ADM. Between this shit,the airport scanning fiasco,the dismissal of 280 counts against Ghailani,(you remember him,the first of the GITMO crowd to get a civil trial)in an EPIC failure of this asinine administration,the retention of Pelosi as minority leader,2012 is looking better all the time.Too damn bad it is still 2 years away.

  10. frankie,

    ANY time the government is involved, fees, permits, licenses, are always there. Those are taxes and they never ever go away once passed.

    Consider this. Social Security was started as a TRUST FUND for widows and orphans. Good right? Who could be against that? Oh, and we're only gonna take 1% out of YOUR paycheck and 1% from your employer to fund it. You won't miss 1% will you?

    Then it was 2%, 3%, 5%, now it is 7.35% per employee and per employer, and its bankrupt.

    It is called incrementalism and the Left and the RINOS excel at it.

    The EPA started as a agency for clean water and clean air, you CAN'T be against that right? Now look, they're telling you what light bulbs to use, etc. They have become a rogue agency with no oversight.

    Remember this: He who gives up his freedom for security [safety] deserves neither." Franklin

    I post the links on my blog and have ALWAYS done that so that my readers can read what I read and decide for themselves. If you see no threat here, rock on. I myself see ANY government agency dictating to "small entities" oh, which have yet to be defined, as a bad thing.

    How did Nutsy Pelosi say it? "We have to pass this bill to see what is inside it."

    You are on the right track. Question BOLDLY as Beck puts it.

  11. clyde,

    I heard that about the tango only getting convicted on ONE COUNT! This clown killed and maimed hundreds!

    Catch them in the field, give them a quick military tribunal followed by a firing squad.

    I laughed when I saw that Monsanto was involved in this and then when it came out, they were like, oh, we're just interested in it!

    If they can force all of the small farmers out of business, they'll make billions and control the food.

  12. Check your dead drop,Gunny.

  13. frankie,

    Check out the bold-faced #3 above. Without stating it via lawyerese, they are discussing seeds because seeds are typically taken after the plant has been harvested, some of the "fruit" is allowed to go to seed, cleaned, and stored for the next season.

    The seeds you buy in the store are hybrid, that is, they do not produce seed.

    Ever hear the term "gone to seed?" That means the harvest is done and what is left, waiting to be taken in, is seed.

  14. Monsanto is a corporate terrorist. They have collapsed many farmers into bankruptcy through litigation. Some of it is legit but much of it is flat out corporate terrorism. Ask any farmer that produces small grain. Real scary stuff.

    If they are "interested", it is for a reason. It's not because of some kumbaya shit.

    Just like GE is interested in AGW and how to prevent it, as they stand to make gazillions in green energy technology so too is Monsanto regarding the food production.

    Monsanto, Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM), and one other company effectively OWN the world's food production. They hold the patents on the seed.

    Follow the money.

  15. DuPont is the third. These three companies have invested about $30 million in campaign contributions over the last 2 years in support of this bill.

  16. Guns!! On Tuesday a group of us were Talking about the Ukraine and that starvation. We were all tying to remember the term "Holodomor!"

    Oy. These people do not get it! Nor will they- until they are knocking on our doors asking for goodwill and food.

  17. They already control seeds.

    Just try to get some tobacco seeds.

  18. All,

    Heirloom seeds can be purchased at places like:

    Three things we MUST have are food, water, and air.

  19. Hardnox,

    I wonder how much Monsanto stock Soros owns.

  20. Gunny,

    Good point. I'd bet it's a bunch.

  21. Who we vote for in 2012 will be critical.

    No more McCains. No more Romnys.

    If we vote for a moderate prez in the primaries, are best hope of fixing this mess goes bye bye.

    We need someone willing to reverse everything Obama has signed.

    We need someone to cut taxes and reduce spending.

    But, most of all, we need someone willing to dial back the power of the federal government.

    Repeal SOx, repeal CRA, stop funneling federal tax dollars to unions, Endowments, and bailouts.

    Reduce federal funding of education.

    Let states and local governments decide on the best ways to educate local students that are in the public systems.

    Encourage those systems to become less dependent on taxed funds.

    Encourage people to opt for private schooling. Find ways for middle class Americans to be able to afford private schools for their children, without government subsidization (deregulation and tax reductions at local, state and federal levels come to mind).

    It's time to replace the TSA x-ray booths with cheaper, safer, more effective solutions: IR booths would provide more than enough detail without the risks, sniffer booths would detect explosive traces that the x-ray and IR booths would miss - IE they would be more likely to detect cavity bombs, profiling would result in fewer delays and better safety - If they really are just picking on every 10th person, all the terrorists have to do is make sure their just after someone who got scanned - who thinks they haven't figured that out already?, dogs could be used to allow the lines to move (almost) without interruption. If their worried about somebody slipping on board with a ceramic knife or a plastic gun, install ultrasonic detectors and have everyone walk through them after the metal detectors (or at the same time).

    A president has the power to directly address the TSA issues.

    I want a candidate willing to pick from one or more of the options above and promise to issue executive orders and TSA commands to make those changes happen, starting 1/1/2013, if elected.

    I want congress to pass sweeping Obama repeals in the first week of 2013 and the president to sign them all by the start of the second week.

    Then I want the to start working on undoing damage done by Bush, Clinton, Carter, LBJ, FDR, Hover and Wilson.

    By 2014, I want the 16th and 17th Amendments repealed, the 14th Amendment fixed to prevent anchor babies, and a new Amendment passed to prevent the federal government from using tax dollars for charitable purposes.

    The American people are perfectly capable of giving on their own, and don't need the federal government doing it for them.

    Our "rich" people are not King Johns, and our elected officials have no right to play Robin Hood.

    Lamenting the current situation in DC is Pointless; as, the current House leadership, much of the Senate and even the President no-longer have anything to loose - they've either lost already in November, or expect to loose in 2012 no matter what they do. Nothing we say to them will change their minds on that; so, until 2011, they will be ramming through everything they can as fast as they can without sweating the details or even bothering to read it first. All anyone can do is challenge everything they pass in court and refuse to pass budges that fund the new laws, at least until 2013 when the repeals can begin - if conservatives win the expected (or possibly even super which would allow Constitutional Amendments to be repealed and/or created) majorities and Oval Office.

    Our big chance, to undo the progressive's damage, is coming.

  22. MrObvious,

    I could not agree more.

    MISSION #1: Keeping the American public focused on their dysfunctional and corrupt government.
