    Leveraging Loopholes: Biotech's Answer to Consumer GMO Protest

    in News

    One of the latest practices in biotech is a process that allows DNA to be edited down to the letter. Known as CRISPR technology, scientists now have the ability to control gene mechanisms with unprecedented accuracy and without traditional invasive high-cost GMO procedures as they exist now. In effect, CRISPR is the evolution of GMO. All of this allows corporations to continue producing genetically altered foods without ever having to worry about legislation or labeling mandates. As consumer "right to know" demand increases and more companies are responding to protests by voluntarily labeling GMO products or removing them from their ingredients altogether, industry is well ahead of the game and consumers should not be fooled into complacency. CRISPR technology allows a crafty bypass because it is not recognized technically as a GMO process as is currently defined. Industry can use this technology to dodge existing regulations now, or in the future, and avoid GMO stigmas in public perception as they continue driving corporate profit. They would not have to disclose this new process to regulators or the public, rendering the hotly debated GMO labeling issue effectively moot. Present day loopholes in an obsolete agribusiness regulatory system may be the biggest challenge yet as consumers fight to stay informed and aware of what is happening to the manufacturing of food. Is CRISPR technology the ultimate bait and switch in the GMO debate?

    RETURN OF THE CONSUMER CREDITOR-THE DEMISE OF DEBT COLLECTOR TERRORIST ON THOR!

    in Legal

    THOR ECONOMIC & DEBT BROADCAST;


       THOR Destruction of the Debt Terrorists and the United Snakes of America. This Broadcast will share with our Private Community the very many examples of the Destruction caused by Foreign Pirates who invaded America on their Maritime Pirate Ships. Some of those Pirates are the BAR Association, Federal Reserve Bank, United States, and each of their Administrative Agencies. These entities were granted the Privilege to serve the AMERICAN People with certain goods and products. Today we see them as Tyrannists who has Infiltrated and Occupied the Land of the Original People and those granted permission by the US to reside here.


          The Debt Collection Industry has thrived off of the ignorance of the Consumer and Natural Persons. This Industry likely was Created and still Run by the Legal Society, ie, BAR Associate Members, Banks and others. It is THOR's position that the US in its entirety are nothing more than Debt Collectors, attempting to collect a Debt, rather a TAX. Therefore Consumer "Protection" applies to just about every faucet of Commerce a Consumer may engage in. This includes but not limited to Private for Private Police Agencies, Internal Revenue Service, Child Support Agencies, Courts, States and the United States.


          This means we are always the Creditor.....always Superior and not Inferior to any Debtor who are all of the United States. JOIN US on our World Renown Economic & Debt Show.Every Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 AM EST!
