"Food is power. We use it to change behavior. Some may call that bribery. We do not apologize," exclaimed Catherine Bertini, former Confidential Assistant to New York State Governor Nelson Rockefeller and Executive Director of the U.N. World Food Program at the Beijing Woman's Conference (Sept. 1995).

Control the food and you control the people.

When I first read Clinton's Executive Order 13112 of February 3, 1999 -- Invasive Species, I knew it was BAD news and would come back to haunt us.

Congress did nothing to block it and it is now being implemented under the Bush administration.

Quoting the EO, "Alien species" means, with respect to a particular ecosystem, any species, including its seeds, eggs, spores, or other biological material capable of propagating that species, that is not native to that ecosystem.

Paste this into any search engine: "Invasive Species" + "United Nations"  The draft executive order on invasive species released in May 1998, raised questions whether this executive order was being used to implement Section 8(h) of the Convention of Biological Diversity -- a treaty that has not been ratified by the Senate.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is one of the Invasive Species Council (created by Clinton's EO) members. USAID is an IGO (intergovernmental organization) of the United Nations. USAID's stated principal goals are to promote broad-based economic growth, protect human health, encourage sound environmental management, and provide emergency humanitarian assistance to countries in transition. The Agency works in partnership with host governments, other U.S. government agencies, other international donors, U.S. and local businesses and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It is in reality a busybody, "step 'n fetchit" for the UN to implement their socialistic programs.

Read the article immediately following. I am now in violation of Clinton's EO. My crime? I collect wildflower seeds from all over the country. I have wildflowers instead of grass on my property. I'm a BA-A-A-D girl!
