“We need to start focusing on food production. It takes 15 years to bring a genetically engineered product to market. The clock is ticking. We need to get moving.” ~ Dr Jason Clay, Senior Vice President, World Wildlife Fund, 2010.
A 2011 film by Wilfried Huismann, The Silence of the Pandas, targets the World Wildlife Fund, the largest, most trusted, and best-funded environmental “protection” organization in the world.

Sedition is being openly discussed in several states in the US. Bill Kaufman’s new book, Bye Bye, Miss American Empire addresses the topic head on (Chelsea Green, 2010).
