The NY Times story today on the vanishing bees may open up the
floodgates on what's really happening with Bayer's Imidacloprid.
Here's an old article from Robert Lederman that should prove enlightening.
Also note: In France, Imidacloprid was BANNED in the 1990s and the
ban was renewed in 2004, over Bayer's objections, because of the
killing of honeybees BACK THEN. Now, we've apparently reached the
"tipping point" -- the crisis -- and all those years of the EPA's
ignoring scientists' reports are coming back to haunt us.
Giuliani's latest efforts to poison NYC with IG Farben chemicals
by Robert Lederman [log in to unmask]
Yesterday I watched Giuliani and Stern's press conference on the plan
to inject ten thousand trees in Brooklyn and Queens NY with
imidacloprid in response to Asian Longhorn Beetles. Ghoulish to say
Guess what little fact they left out? Imidacloprid is manufactured by
Bayer, which was the main component of Nazi Germany's IG Farben
chemical cartel. Organophosphate insecticides such as Malathion and
Zyklon-b are two other of their products you may be familiar with.
IG Farben was half-owned by the Rockefeller family. IG
Farben/Standard Oil built Auschwitz and forty other
concentration/slave labor camps in Germany and occupied Europe.
Many researchers now believe that Mad Cow Disease is caused, not by
infected cattle feed, but by heavy exposure to pesticides which the
cows are treated with. [This is still debatable. It is possible that
feeding the normally vegetarian cows so-called "rendered" (i.e.
ground up) meat from sick cows (who could have been made sick from
the GMO hormones and pesticides to begin with) increases the toxins
in their bodies, including pesticides. So these two modalities might
be integrally related.- Mitchel] As in all pesticide and chemical
exposure the effect is cumulative. The more exposures an organism has
the more sensitive they become to the chemical.
Imidacloprid is very harmful to bees according to information from
sources other than Bayer. It is a cholinasterase inhibitor as is
Malathion and can be expected to have similar neurological effects on
humans and to be similarly destructive to the environment.
At their press conference Giuliani and Stern appeared to be doing a
sick comedy routine with Giuliani assuring the assembled reporters
that he's proud of his Hitlerian Parks Department nickname, eagle,
and equally proud of Henry Stern, who is being investigated for
corruption, racism, misuse of funds etc. Where's Giuliani's "decency
commission" when you really need it?
Giuliani and his loyal henchmen like Henry Stern -who would do
anything to keep his job as Parks Commissioner - are the single
greatest threat to public safety in NYC. Close to ten thousand trees
are each going to be injected with ounces of this chemical which
travels upwards in the sap throughout the tree. As soon as the leaves
fall off and disintigrate, the poison will be in our water and freely
circulate as dust in the air we breath. Children will be playing in
it, tracking it into their homes on their shoes and clothes. Does one
need to be a scientist to figure out what happens to the birds, small
animals and beneficial insects that live on and around the trees?
Around the same time the Imidacloprid is being released into our air
from decaying leaves the Mayor plans to be once again spraying us
with Malathion. The City just began taking bids for the chemical
spraying that will be done this year. Throughout his career there is
a pattern linking Giuliani to Hitler. His fascination with using
chemicals from IG Farben on human beings is just one of many such links.
"Freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want,
be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority." Mayor Giuliani,
New York Times, March 17, 1994
"Robert Lederman, 49, a street artist who has protested for years
against Mayor Giuliani's policies, often arrives with dozens of
placards caricaturing the mayor as Hitler, complete with the Fuhrer's
mustache". -NY Times 4/8/2000 "Demonstrators of Old Spread Their
Message in a New Era of Protest"
"I take a different view of someone comparing me to Adolf Hitler than
when someone calls me a jerk." Mayor Giuliani, N.Y. Daily News 10/25/1998
"NEW YORK (AP) -- Former Mayor Ed Koch criticized Mayor Rudolph
Giuliani on Wednesday for sharing a dais at a Martin Luther King Day
event with an Austrian political leader who once praised the policies
of Adolf Hitler. ``Is that a place to celebrate Martin Luther King
Day, to be on the same dais as the leader of the neo-Nazi Party in
Austria?'' -AP 1/19/2000 Giuliani Criticized by Koch
Newsday 8/18/89 Holocaust `Reminder' Claimed "A concentration camp
suvivor who witnessed the murders of his parents and five siblings at
Auschwitz claimed that during questioning after his arrest on bribery
charges he was placed before a blackboard bearing a Nazi slogan by
former U.S. Attorney General Rudolph Giuliani's office as part of an
attempt to "break" him...Written on the blackboard was the German
phrase "Arbeit Macht Frei." The slogan, "Work Shall Set You Free,"
adopted by the Nazi party, appeared over the gates at Auschwitz."
