(NaturalNews) During the month of January 2012, the FDA detained nearly 14% of imported orange juice shipments to the US because it contained the fungicide carbendazim which is not approved for use in this country. According the US Juice Products Association, the solution is to change the regulations so that the fungicide-tainted juice can enter the country.

Chemical orange juice
The federal regulatory agency began testing imported orange juice for the prohibited chemical after Coca-Cola, which distributes Minute Maid and Simply Orange, reported finding the fungicide both in its own products and other brands of juice. Most orange juice sold by Coke and other companies contains a blend of juice from different sources including Brazil, where carbendazim is used to prevent a fungus which causes black spots on orange tree leaves. The detained shipments were from Brazil and Canada, which purchases orange juice products from other countries and then exports it to the US.

Tests revealed the seized juice shipments had concentrations of the fungicide at levels ranging from 10 parts per billion to 52 parts per billion. The FDA says the juice is safe to drink but since carbendazim is not approved for use in this country, any juice containing small amounts of it must be detained. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, which recently raised the limit of radiation exposure allowed in the USA following the Fukushima disaster,there are no health risks associated with carbendazim at concentration levels of up to 80 parts per billion.

Here at TDV fascism is frequently referred to as the increasingly prevalent form of government in the West. We recognize that this conjures strong emotions and we often get a few angry emails voicing displeasure with our characterization of their homeland. We understand that the word fascism is an emotionally charged word and we do not use it lightly.

We recognize, however, that we have never taken the time to define it completely nor place it within the context of our communications (although Jeff did compare the USA to the dictionary definition of “fascism” in “The Fasco-Communist Police State of America”). As such, we have fallen victim to one of our own cardinal sins; letting somebody else control the thoughts by controlling the definition of the words used to define those thoughts. To make matters worse, by default, we have relegated the responsibility of defining those words to two of the most criminally complicit estates in our society, namely the educational system and mass media. It is time to address this oversight.

Defenders of the recently passed National Defense Authorization Act, which declares the entire world to be a “battlefield” against terrorism and authorizes the U.S. military to detain indefinitely anyone suspected of being a terrorism supporter, have claimed that the White House will only use its new power carefully and with due process. Opponents note that the White House has never hesitated to use any new authority, no matter how outrageous, and that the trend of law enforcement and security agencies is to expand on powers granted, not to rein them in or limit them.

The track record of the Obama administration on civil liberties is particularly bad, as it has broadened its definition of war powers, reneged on its promise to close Guantanamo Prison, and supported numerous dubious terrorism prosecutions. It has also become adept at silencing critics through the repeated exploitation of the state-secrets privilege, which effectively dismisses any case accusing the government of abuse or malfeasance.

In a major step towards global centralization of election processes, the world’s dominant Internet voting company has purchased the USA’s dominant election results reporting company.

When you view your local or state election results on the Internet, on portals which often appear to be owned by the county elections division, in over 525 US jurisdictions you are actually redirected to a private corporate site controlled by SOE software, which operates under the name ClarityElections.com.

The good news is that this firm promptly reports precinct-level detail in downloadable spreadsheet format. As reported by BlackBoxVoting.org in 2008, the bad news is that this centralizes one middleman access point for over 525 jurisdictions in AL, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, KY, MI, KS, IL, IN, NC, NM, MN, NY, SC, TX, UT, WA. And growing.
