– “I’m Not Stupid” Monsanto Lobbyist Refuses To Drink Weedkiller After Proclaiming “It Won’t Hurt You” (ZeroHedge, March 27, 2015):
“Do as I say, not as I do,” appears to be the message from a controversial lobbyist who claimed that the chemical in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer was safe for humans refused to drink his own words when a French television journalist offered him a glass… “I’m not stupid,” he proclaims… you be the judge…
In a preview of an upcoming documentary on French TV, Dr. Patrick Moore tells a Canal+ interviewer that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, was not increasing the rate of cancer in Argentina.
“You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you,” Moore insists.
“You want to drink some?” the interviewer asks. “We have some here.”
“I’d be happy to, actually,” Moore replies, adding, “Not really. But I know it wouldn’t hurt me.”
“If you say so, I have some,” the interviewer presses.
“I’m not stupid,” Moore declares.
“So, it’s dangerous?” the interviewer concludes.
But Moore claims that Roundup is so safe that “people try to commit suicide” by drinking it, and they “fail regularly.”
“Tell the truth, it’s dangerous,” the interviewer says.
“It’s not dangerous to humans,” Moore remarks. “No, it’s not.”
“So, are you ready to drink one glass?” the interviewer continues to press.
“No, I’m not an idiot,” Moore says defiantly. “Interview me about golden rice, that’s what I’m talking about.”
At that point, Moore declares that the “interview is finished.”
“That’s a good way to solve things,” the interviewer quips.
“Jerk!” Moore grumbles as he storms off the set.

We need more like him.
As a PR exercise for Monsatan, it was brilliant for the Organic Movement.
I think it is a pity he didn’t drink it………Lobbyists have become the greatest enemy of the people and ought to be eliminated. I am tempted to suggest he ought to have been forced to drink it……….or step back from his lies.
The time to rise is now before its too late, the sooner the better.
Here are more greedy gut corporations backing a movement to gut worker’s compensation……….disgusting. I would expect this of Walmart, but Nordstrom? I was surprised. Time for boycotting them, too…….as much as I love Nordstrom shoes……….
That was awsome!!!!!!
So the guy interviewing the other guy is a jerk for pressing a liar to be honest?! I guess that makes the other guy a lying piece of ducking shit! The only way that could have gone better is if that guy snapped his fingers after the other guy refused to drunk it and 2 big guys came in and held him down while the other guy poured a glass of it down his throat:)
The New York Times has finally gotten more info on Obama’s TPP deal, and it is a slap in the face to all Americans! I read about this over a year ago……the corrupt congress tried to put it into a bill, but the bill was defeated. It gives international corporations the right to over ride our labor, safety, environmental and wage laws. Why would anyone do such a thing, let alone the president of the US? Didn’t he take an oath to protect and defend?
Obama’s trade deal allows multinational corporations to challenge laws passed by our government — things like environmental or safety regulations — to potentially win millions of dollars in “damages” that would have to be paid by American taxpayers. And they could do all this without ever having to go to court in the United States. The secrecy around this deal is very troubling.
The text of the proposed TPP deal has been a secret, and anyone can see why. The New York Times finally got their hands on the TPP text. The TPP would go further in undermining our laws and regulations, and it would benefit more big businesses….at our cost.
The recent leak shows that the TPP would allow corporations to use ISDS to challenge “Buy America” or “buy local” rules that favor domestic manufacturing. What kind of leaders do this to their own country? The new leak also shows that safeguards to limit the use of ISDS, shown in a 2012 leak of the TPP, are now gone.
This story needs all the exposure it can get……and it won’t get it in US 24/7 corporate news that isn’t.
It was Wikileaks who got the data on Obama’s TTP, not the NYT. The NYT is not saying a word about it…….
Here is the text from Wikileaks press release from yesterday.
Here is the full text of the TPP trade agreement………..we might as well have our worst enemies passing our laws. This is akin to treason in my opinion.
I was wrong about the NYT, they are not saying a word……they have sunk a long way in the last 20 years, it is only Wikileaks showing the courage to report the truth.
