First al-Qaeda and then the Amish
May 4, 2011 by Bob Livingston
The fascist government elites continued their assault on American liberty last week with separate raids on an Amish farm that was committing the crime of selling raw milk and a natural supplement company that violated U.S. Food and Drug Administration labeling rules.
In Pennsylvania, armed Federal thugs wearing flak jackets swooped in on Rainbow Acres Farms and bashed in doors like they were raiding Osama bin Ladens compound. The raid came after a months-long investigation that saw agents using assumed names and surreptitiously purchasing products from across State lines so they could apply the misused interstate commerce clause of the Constitution, according to a report in The Washington Times.
In Oregon, the FDA, IRS and FBI raided Maxam Nutraceutics, a company that produces and sells nutritional supplements primarily for autism spectrum disorders and Alzheimers disease.
Maxams crime was using customer testimonials about its products. According to the medical fascists in the FDA, repeating what customers say about your products turns those products into unapproved drugs.
So the FDAs position is that natural products like raw milk, which man has consumed as far back as time can be recorded are illegal and harmful, but falsely marketed drugs from Big Pharma, with at best dubious research on their effectiveness, are perfectly okay for consumers. And falsely labeling food products by claiming they contain fruit, even though they only contain artificial fruit concoctions and contain no fruit whatsoever, is legal, but using the words of actual customers to promote products is not.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA take the position that raw milk can be contaminated with harmful bacteria and that pasteurized milk provides all the nutrients of raw milk without the danger. The truth is, pasteurized milk is a dead food. All the benefits of the milk are removed in the pasteurization process. And there had been no complaints of anyone becoming ill from consuming Rainbow Acres Farms milk.
This is just another example of the medical tyranny and corporatocracy in which we now live.
