Food Safety Modernization Act

This time the power grab that is being attempted has to do with the production of food in our country.

Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) introduced the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 (H.R. 875) on February 4, 2009.

The bill, which currently carries 40 cosponsors, would effectively transfer all state control over food regulation to the Food Safety Administration (FSA), a newly established federal bureaucracy to be created within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

It would very likely contribute to the eventual abandonment of all independent, family farms as well as all organic farming operations due to the high probability of overbearing federal regulations arbitrarily determined by FSA in favor of corporate factory farms.

H.R. 875 would violate the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution by delegating what should be state-level authority to the federal government. The burdensome record keeping that would be required by the FSA would threaten the success of small agricultural businesses and family-owned farms who may not be able to comply with new federal restrictions.  

Americans should be concerned about this administration’s clear pattern of first nationalizing, and then internationalizing our laws with regard to energy, food, water, etc. This bill is nothing but another power grab at the hands of the federal government, and a detriment to the family farm and other small agricultural businesses who should be especially cautious of H.R. 875 as it threatens their own businesses and way of living.

If ever there was a case for the defeated NH States’ Rights bill HCR6, this is it.

Why should we be concerned? The UN has concocted something called Codex Alimentarius which would bring under their control the world’s food supply as well as outlawing many natural supplements.

Please watch the video (Part 1) to see what Dr. Rima E. Laibow, M.D. thinks about it.
