German chemicals giant Bayer has confirmed its record-breaking $66bn takeover of GM seeds business Monsanto - a deal that would create the world's biggest seeds and pesticides company.
...
Monsanto is known for its genetically modified seeds for crops.
The use of such seeds is widespread in the US, but plans to introduce these into Europe have prompted fierce protests by environmental activists.
...
Professor John Colley of Warwick Business School said: "Bayer's acquisition of 'Frankenstein' crop producer Monsanto could be a horror story for both Bayer and its customers: the farmers."

Bayer said feeding the world's population, which is expected to rise by around a third by 2050, was a massive challenge.

Bayer confirms $66bn Monsanto takeover

It took sime time to find a good english source, this is all over the news in Germany. Just another step towards more GM-crops in Europe. I hope the Cartel Bureau stops this but the general consens is that the deal will be passed through. Let´s see how this affects the discussions around GM-food in Europe. Monsanto somehow failed with their plan, now a German based Pharmagiant has all knowledge and maybe it will make things easier for pushing it through, finally.

Here is another source, for our German readers:

Notice the time difference, although it came from Reuters....

Environmentally speaking, this is like Jeffrey Dahmer buying out Ted Bundy.

Whose the law firm doing legal on this?

Law firm of John, Wayne and Gacy

Shrewd move really, GM crops will now be embraced in the E.U as the lobbyists will be all over Juncker and co, lining their pockets with the filthy lucre.

New Name, Same Dirty Rotten Destructive B(*%^@D$


Maybe that's the whole plan. The general public wont see "Monsanto" anymore, and figure everything is hunky dory.

Some beach.

A couple things about Bayer you might not know:

Bayer Promoted Heroin for Children


Bayer Sells Drug tainted with AIDS - Banned in U.S. in Europe, Asia

Recently unearthed documents show that the drug company Bayer sold millions of dollars worth of an injectable blood-clotting medicine -- Factor VIII concentrate, intended for hemophiliacs -- to Asian, Latin American, and some European countries in the mid-1980s, although they knew that it was tainted with AIDS.

The company stopped selling the drug in the United States in 1984, but continued to sell it overseas for an additional year. The medicine was made using combined plasma from large numbers of donors; at the time, there was no screening test for the AIDS virus, so a tiny number of donors with AIDS could inadvertently contaminate a large batch.

Yea, what an ingenious idea though. Make people sick, then sell them medicine, we can charge way more for the sick Americans!!! Well be rich!! And by we I mean them, well be broke. Haha

Oh this should be awesome!

Remember when Bayer infected people with AIDS so they wouldn't lose money?

Imagine what sort of evil they can do now.

Don't forget that Bayer is the same pharmaceutical company linked to Nazi Germany's medical experiments on concentration camp prisoners. They have a long and dark history of being involved in the manufacture of chemical weapons.

During World War II, IG Farben used slave labor in factories that it built adjacent to German concentration camps, notably Auschwitz, and the sub-camps of the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp. IG Farben purchased prisoners for human experimentation of a sleep-inducing drug and later reported that all test subjects died. IG Farben held a large investment in Degesch which produced Zyclon B used to gas and kill prisoners during the Holocaust.
en.wikipedia.org...

Bayer CropScience, of Mannheim, Germany, paid the students, mostly from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Pounds 450 each to consume the pesticide.

The project, the fine detail of which is secret, has been condemned in the United States as unscientific and unethical. Experts are worried that cash-strapped students are vulnerable targets for researchers. Lawyers point out that the Nuremberg Code, formulated after the Nazis’ wartime experiments, bans the use of humans for testing poisonous substances where the risk exceeds the benefit to humanity.

And the catholic church had shares on ammunition manufactures...
If you´re digging long enough you will find such connections in almost every big company that existed around WW2.
Not to excuse them but we live now, in the present. We should focus on what they are up to now, before it´s to late again. Nonetheless, it´s valuable input for members who are not aware yet.

I´m currently collecting informations on BAYER, to see what use they really see in Monsanto.

I already see corn with Bayer flag in my country and we gave no GMO policy, but only on paper. Thru plated GMO seeds several times and nothing happened, only alternative media reported, but there were no penalty, nothing.

A collegue told me he has to buy new seeds every year because they won´t sprout. That sounds like GM. Not sure either if it´s true or not, I can´t verify it so take it as hearsay.
