HEY! It’s Jolie Diane.
Did you know that seeds were once widely accepted as currency in many parts of the world? Seeds are the gift of life and they don’t need much other than for someone to recognize their future potential.
With that said, I propose that now is the time to dig in and start a Victory Garden! 20 million Victory Gardens were planted by families all over the United States to prevent a food shortage during World War I and II. It was considered an overwhelming success and people of all ages learned the value of self sufficiency and the labor needed to produce food.
Today, regardless of your economic situation, being able to feed yourself and your family is of the utmost importance and as an added benefit, recent studies indicate that gardening improves health and well being.
You may have heard reports of people not being able to buy seeds during this economic shutdown disallowing them to grow their own food. That seems at worst kind of fascist and at best ill-considered considering the uncertain circumstances regarding the food and supply chain.
As I mentioned in a previous communication the availability of food, water, and money has been recognized as a very effective tool to control large swaths of people. Everyone from Henry Kissinger who said: “Control oil and you control the nations; control food and you control the people,” to the Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Program and former US Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Catherine Bertini, when she proclaimed, “Food is power! We use it to change behavior. Some may call that bribery. We do not apologize.”
Naturally, the idea of starving people out so that they do what you want is pretty harsh if not criminal. Mandates to control the sale and distribution of seeds are questionable if not unconstitutional and restrictions on our ability to grow our own food and medicine are unlawful and illegitimate.
Part of the beauty of America is our incredible diversity, great strength, and ability to overcome even the toughest obstacles. Who knows what we could accomplish if we all work together. The good People of America must have a central role in policy-making and governance especially since the union of international corporate interests in our government is problematic.
For instance, Bayer-Monsanto, the world’s largest seed company currently controlling 23% of the global seed market is just now realizing the lawsuits from people harmed, injured, or killed by their toxic products.
According to an investigative piece published in The Ecologist magazine in 2016, “Monsanto corporation started out as the maker of killer poisons like DDT, PCBs, and Agent Orange. From 1961 to 1971 the US dropped 21 million gallons of defoliants over large swathes of Vietnam … manufactured for the US Department of Defense primarily by Monsanto Corporation and Dow Chemical.”
These chemicals destroyed the health and agriculture of the Vietnamese people. US soldiers were also harmed and exposed to the defoliating spray which damaged everyone’s DNA. Horrific birth defects are still being experienced in Vietnam.
More recently two billion dollars in damages were awarded to a husband and wife in California who proved that Monsanto’s weed killer RoundUp caused their cancer. Meanwhile, there are more than two thousand seven hundred lawsuits pending in US District court against Beyer-Monsanto and that’s just in San Francisco!
It is unacceptable that these corporations that have caused so much misery, contamination, and destruction of our environment are a leading force in our “food” industry.
I have food in quotations here as most of the food products Monsanto-Beyer sells are part of an overarching engineering paradigm designed to control natural systems with toxic chemicals or genetic modification which makes this food unrecognizable to our bodies as nutritious or life sustaining. These Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are another example of violence against nature based on the false underlying assumption that nature needs “fixing.”
My Administration would abandon programs of eco-genocide, poverty and war while faithfully following the Constitution. Lack of public oversight and guidance on critical matters has caused significant harm to human health and fragile ecosystems.
With my campaign for President I am planting seeds. If you appreciate the potential of what we can do with these seeds please consider voting for me, especially if you live in the write-in states of New Hampshire,Vermont, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Iowa, Oregon, DC, Alabama, Wyoming, and Mississippi.
Now let’s roll up our sleeves and get to making a better future! Spread some seeds. Share this message.

Open Letter to Bayer Crop Science Shareholders
“Bayer Crop Science is trying to make a decision. Whether to continue fight the 18,000 or so claims from plaintiffs who accuse Monsanto of concealing the fact that Roundup caused cancer…or to settle. Mediation has been arranged. But Roundup causes more than cancer. I have written this document to Bayer shareholders to ask them to stop funding Bayer. The sooner they go out of business, the better.” LINK
