Major General Albert N. Stubblebine: An "Insurance Policy" For Ushering in the North American Union & Codex???
The Spin Doctors at so called "Natural Solutions Foundation", a controlled opposition group working diametrically against the efforts of IAHF and Allied health freedom groups just fired off yet another barrage of disinformation today titled "Victory Dance" which could cause some people to sit on their hands and not continue to make the effort necessary to kill or amend S.1082.
NSF's long standing pattern of attempting to Hijack the health freedom movement in order to divert dietary supplement consumers into dead ends through skillful use of spin, disinfo, and "tell us what we want to hear" in an effort to build a following has been thoroughly exposed by IAHF, the National Health Federation, the Dr.Rath Foundation, and other Allied Groups for the past several years.* If you're receiving their alerts, please don't forward them- doing so hurts our efforts and can be compared to forwarding the most sensationalistic urban legends presently making the rounds in cyberspace.
In their most recent barrage of disinfo, NSF, which continues to perpetuate the myth that you can stop Codex at Codex while doing nothing to defend US Sovereignty as our country is being deconstructed states the following- (NSF's statements are in Dark Blue, IAHF's comments are interspersed in RED below):
Your activism just saved supplements from being turned into "untested drugs"! Big Pharma will be back, but today, we can do a victory dance!
[Unfortunately, we haven't had any victory, we must continue trying to kill or amend S.1082 which goes to a floor vote on monday, full details below.....
Thank you 435,005 times. That's the number of people who used our site to submit their comments to the FDA on their dangerous CAM Guidance through our site. 182,484 succeeded but, since our site was interfered with several times, 252,521 people did not. We were working feverishly to submit those comments manually.
[The CAM Guidance Document was and still is a non issue, and thats not just IAHF's opinion. Its been, and from the look of things still IS being used by NSF to try to DIVERT ATTENTION AWAY from the need to kill or amend S.1082 and from the need to get congressional oversight on the FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter with Canada and Mexico via which Codex will be ushered into the USA unless we stop it. The CAM Guidance Document was ably exposed as a non issue by IAHF, followed by Dr.Joseph Mercola http://v.mercola.com/blogs/public_blog/New-FDA-Initiative-Circulating-the-Net-Does-Not-Warrant-Alarm-or-Action-12707.aspx , followed by investigative journalist Peter Barry Chowka whose scathing indictment of NSF must be read by all for your awareness: http://naturalhealthline.com/
If the alleged 435,005 people who NSF claims sent comments to the unelected bureaucrats at FDA re the CAM Guidance document (which will never have the force of law) had INSTEAD spent their time and energy assisting IAHF in pushing for congressional oversight on FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter, something REAL would have happened to GENUINELY defend health freedom- see http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/373269232#body All of NSF's spin seems designed steer to the health freedom movement AWAY from the antiglobalization movement. See Open Letter to Disinformation Specialist General Albert N. Stubblebine III of "Natural Solutions Foundation" http://www.ymlp.com/pubarchive_show_message.php?jham+589
This Open Letter was the only reason NSF went through the MOTIONS of "getting involved" with the S.1082 issue in the first place, and now they're attempting to proclaim a non existent "victory" in an apparent effort to get you to sit on your hands------ don't fall for it!! Full details expose their spin below. More NSF Spin:
Ready for Some Great News?
Although the FDA denied our request to extend the comment, failed to update its site or its comment tally, extended the comment period and then resinded the extension (!), our collective voice won us a huge victory in Congress today. Because we rallied behind our health freedom and access to natural health products, every member of the Senate voting today heard us loud and clear and acted -- without a single dissenting voice -- to protect our health freedom!
Read what "the Vitamin Lawyer ", Ralph Fucetola, has to say about the impact of our activism in an email on the topic today:
"And some very good news: Congress has accepted the following amendment to S.1082 - Enhancing Drug Safety and Innovation Act of 2007 - from Sen. Durbin.
It appears that Congress heard our concerns! Hundreds of thousands of messages to FDA no doubt reverberated through the halls of Congress. The
amendment was adopted by the Senate 94 to zero.
Sec. X08. Rule of Construction
Nothing in this title (or an amendment made by this title) shall be construed to affect--
(1) The regulation of dietary supplements under the Dietary Supplement
Health and Education Act; or
(2) The adverse event reporting system for dietary supplements created
under the Dietary Supplement and Nonprescription Drug Consumer Protection Act.
Like many victories in Congress, you hardly ever get everything you want. Leading supplement industry lawyer, J. Emord, originally proposed exempting all
"foods" from the new law (Counsel stated: "It is a fundamental tenet of food and drug law that foods and food ingredients are presumed to be safe and have
to be established to be adulterated only if they present a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury." This approach would have offered even greater protection for natural products, but we are grateful that enough members of Congress heard the loud shout from the public and responded so quickly to at least protect DSHEA products -- the power of Internet politics at its best.
[ The amendment cited above by NSF does NOTHING to protect us, moreover, by announcing a non existent "victory" NSF is clearly trying to get people to sit on their hands and not keep fighting back! NSF did the same exact thing when IAHF and Allied groups attempted to kill CAFTA, recognizing the tie in between the trade agreement and Codex- at that time they generated no less than SEVEN spin pieces against our message while simultaneously claiming a non existent "victory" at Codex: see A Modern Major General Exposed? by Paul Taylor http://www4.dr-rath-foundation.org/THE_FOUNDATION/Events/codex-moderngeneral.html
IAHF and Allied groups are continuing to try to do the following with regards to S.1082:
A) Get Emord's amendment into the bill, removing the terms "Foods" and "Food Ingredients" from the section of this voluminous bill on the Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA is the only sure fire way to even PARTIALLY protect ourselves from this horrible piece of legislation which creates a pharmaceutical development company literally INSIDE the FDA. We have one huge campaign focused right now on Senator Enzi via Nature's Sunshine distributors made possible via Clinton Miller who are petitioning him in huge numbers, and a second campaign to try to get Senator Coburn to take up our amendment.
B) We need to DEFEAT the Cochran Amendment on Monday when it comes up for a vote because it would DERAIL the Dorgan amendment which passed wednesday. The Dorgan amendment allows for the importation of foreign drugs. Bush has vowed to veto the bill if the Dorgan amendment is in it, and we WANT him to veto the bill so we don't want the Cochran amendment to derail the Dorgan amendment!
C) Any piece of legislation must be passed by both house of congress before it can be passed into law, and its NEVER over "til the fat lady sings"---- which is to say til the President signs it into law. In this case ANYTHING can be added into House language that can UNDO anything we might get put into the Senate language, then the Senate and House language are COJOINED via a markup hearing at which they generate a CONFERENCE REPORT where the COMBINED LANGUAGE goes to the President's desk for his signature.
Please utilize the form letter and instructions sent out in the previous alert at http://www.ymlp.com/pubarchive_show_message.php?jham+603 and lets keep this health freedom ball rolling DESPITE the efforts of NSF to muddy the waters and cause people to sit on their hands!!
