From Monsanto to “Nonsanto” – Why Avoiding GMOs Improves Your Health

An Interview with Author, Researcher and GMO Expert Jeffrey Smith

“Weed killer is a chemical substance that kills living things, some of which are weeds.” — Swami Beyondananda

When Bruce Lipton and I published Spontaneous Evolution nearly ten years ago, in a chapter on our current economic / ecological / political dysfunction, we had a section called “Moneychangers In the Temple — Monsanto Clause Is Coming to Town”, where we talked about the lengths Monsanto (now part of Bayer — those wonderful folks who brought us Auschwitz) has gone to “own” life forms.

Short-form, they have developed genetically-modified seeds they call “Round Up ready” because they and they alone can resist the toxic herbicide in Round Up, glyphosate. The idea is to poison the soil and all non-Monsanto plants, and then sell the “remedy” so that eventually Monsanto will own the keys to life.

Despite convincing evidence glyphosate is a carcinogen, thanks to the cozy relationship between the agrichemical industry and the agencies set up to regulate it — and complicity of the mainstream press — authorities continue to say with a straight-face that glyphosate is “safe.”

Our guest this week, Jeffrey Smith, literally “wrote the book” on GMOs.

The leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices, Jeffrey Smith was named the 2017 “Person of the Year” by Masters of Health Magazine. For more than two decades, his research has exposed how biotech companies mislead policy makers and the public, and put the health of society and environment at risk.

Mr. Smith’s feature-length documentary Genetic Roulette — The Gamble of Our Lives was awarded the 2012 Movie of the Year (Solari Report) and the Transformational Film of the Year (Aware Guide). Seen by millions world-wide, the film links genetically engineered food to toxic and allergic reactions, infertility, digestive disorders, and numerous other problems that have been on the rise in the US population since genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were introduced. His books include: Seeds of Deception, the world’s bestseller on GMOs; and Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods. They expertly demonstrate why the safety assessments by the FDA and regulators worldwide are based on outdated science and false assumptions, and why genetically engineered foods must urgently become our top food safety priority.

Mr. Smith has lectured in 45 countries, counseled leaders from every continent, and has been quoted by thousands of news outlets including: The New York Times, Washington Post, The Times (London), Associated Press, Reuters, LA Times, and Time Magazine. He regularly appears on influential radio and television programs, including the BBC, NPR, Fox News, Democracy Now, The Doctors, and the Dr. Oz Show.

He is the founding executive director of The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), a leading source of GMO health risk information for consumers, policy makers, and healthcare professionals. IRT’s educational programs are driving the tipping point of consumer rejection against GMOs, which is already starting to push genetically engineered ingredients out of the market in the US.

Our interview this week revolves around his soon-to-be-released documentary with Amy Hart, Secret Ingredients, which highlights how numerous individuals and families that healed from serious conditions after switching to an organic, non-GMO diet.

If you’d like to learn how YOU can take charge of your own and your family’s health, tune in for this enlightening and encouraging conversation this Tuesday, January 15th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

Unity Earth Festival Focuses On Culture, Youth and Regeneration of the Earth

An Interview with Adam Collett, Project Manager of Unity Earth Lift Off

“We are all one with the same One, each of us totally unique just like everybody else.” — Swami Beyondananda

It’s fitting that in 2019, fifty years after Woodstock a new festival has emerged to bring together the “imaginal cells” of a new generation, at a time when humankind (without the “kindness”) sits atop the endangered — and endangering species list.

And this time — unlike Woodstock — there is a worldwide movement, an “upwising” if you will, seeking to bring together awakening youth and indigenous people to bring unity out of diversity. Instead of focusing on the “identity” issues that tend to keep us separate, this festival focused on working together around the IDENTICAL ISSUES that unite us — clean air, clean water, clean food, and clean government.

The actual event, Unity Earth Lift Off is being billed as a “multigenerational, intercultural, interactive concert in celebration of UN World Interfaith Harmony Week” and will be held on February 2, 2019 at the United Palace in New York City.

How fitting that organizers have picked Ground Hog Day, which in our turbulent times we have renamed Man Hog Day… if we fail to see our own shadow, two more years of darkness.

Seriously and humorously, our guest this week is Adam Collett, an Australian native who is the project manager for Unity Earth Lift Off, and who shares a compelling and much-needed vision to unite indigenous elders and the young people who will inherit this world to create a “movement of movements” to unify and mobilize those who are ready for a partnership (as opposed to a dominator) civilization.

Adam is an event producer, cultural liaison and social impact designer from Byron Bay, Australia. Inspired by his mother’s stories from the 1969 Woodstock Festival, Adam has been on a lifelong pursuit to inspire change through transformative events and community initiatives that have the power to deliver tangible outcomes on a local and global scale. Working closely with First Nations elders, global youth leaders, and earth regenerators, Adam is dedicated to combining innovative models and technologies with a deep respect for the culture of local people and places. He is the Project Manager for the UNITY EARTH LIFT OFF on February 2nd, 2019 in New York City.

If you live near New York City, go to the event live. Otherwise, join us for a lively discussion on how this celebration might actually “move the dial” for worldwide change for the better, this Tuesday, January 8th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

2019 – A Year of Luminosity

The Re-Evolution of Politics and Economics

An Interview with Visionary Success Strategist Jeanine Just

“It’s time for ALL OF US to become interdependently wealthy.” — Swami Beyondananda

Many years ago, when I was a teacher in Washington, D.C. I had a wonderful colleague who loved channeling Mel Brooks’ 2000-year-old man, who for some reason spoke with a Yiddish accent. One day I ran into my friend, and knowing he was considering switching schools, I asked, “So what are you doing next year?”

And he replied — with that exaggerated Yiddish accent — “Oh, they’re having another one?”

So as we come to the end of another intense and challenging year where you can say both it was the best of times and worst of times… YES… we are having another one!

Our New Year’s Day guest is my long-time friend and colleague Jeanine Just. She came on my radar when I watched an intriguing and inspiring movie, We The People: Re-Evolution of Politics and Economics, co-produced by Sharon Stone. I saw Jeanine was one of the featured luminaries, so I decided to reach out to her.

Jeanine is a Visionary Success Strategist and describes herself as a practical futurist with common sense approaches to today’s complex issues. With over 35 years experience working with thousands of clients, the LA Times called her “a trailblazer—a catalyst for change.”

Each year she creates her Luminosity Vision to help guide people through the New Year so they achieve maximum joy, success and service. Since this is a new year, we’ll be talking about this coming year — not so much predictions as preparations. She does have one “prediction”: “In 2019 billions of people will download a new integrated OS (operating system) to shift from “brain-power creation” to “heart-based co-creation.”

We will also be talking about economics as a “state of consciousness” — the “WE-distribution of wealth and wellbeing, finding one’s “vocation of destiny”, evolving from domination to partnership, and why the law of supply and demand has it backward. The new view? Demand, and it will be supplied. The new economics — she uses the term “equanomics” — takes us beyond socialism and capitalism to a regenerative system, where all is reused, and every participating human “cell” is nourished.

If this sounds utopian — consider the alternative. All you have to do is watch “the news.” If you’re ready for some new news, please join us this Tuesday, January 1st at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

The Latest REAL News on the 9/11 Attacks and Finding Truth in a Sea of Lies

The Latest REAL News on the 9/11 Attacks and Finding Truth in a Sea of Lies

An Interview with Andrew Kreig, Author, Attorney, Broadcaster and Founder of the Justice Integrity Project

“Fake news is a ‘Colonel’ of truth, outflanked by Major Distortion and General Bullshit .” — Swami Beyondananda

Did you know that In a letter dated November 7, 2018, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York notified the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry that he would comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3332 requiring him to present to a special grand jury the Lawyers’ Committee’s reports filed earlier this year of unprosecuted federal crimes at the World Trade Center?

You didn’t? That’s because mainstream media makes it its business to insure that anything that points to the nefarious doings of the real deep state is “none of its business.” The misinformation, disinformation and missing information that pollute corporate news have created the perfect field for “real” fake news to flourish.

Which is why this latest development might be a genuine breakthrough. It means a 23-member grand jury, vested with subpoena power and the authority to take sworn testimony, will hear the voluminous evidence of the World Trade Center’s demolition and will have the ability to conduct a thorough investigation that could result in indictments against suspected individuals — in other words, what the 9/11 Truth Movement has been working toward for 17 years.

Our guest this week on Wiki Politiki, journalist and author Andrew Kreig (pronounced “Craig”) will discuss his own involvement with the Lawyers Committee, as well as his work through his own organization, the Justice Integrity Project.

Visit Justice Integrity, and you will find are freshingly broad, transpartisan and bluntly truthful site that isn’t afraid to take on both the deep state and the Trumpist disinfo machine. Their mission is “to report misconduct,primarily in the justice and political systems, that harms individuals,communities and democratic values. The project is non-partisan and supported by advertising revenue and paid subscriptions.”

Andrew Kreig’s background includes 14 years as a metro newspaper reporter, plus degrees from Yale Law School, the University of Chicago Law School, and Cornell. He has lectured on five continents and appeared on hundreds of broadcast interviews. Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World have listed him continuously since the mid-1990s. He is the author of Presidential Puppetry:Obama, Romney and Their Masters. The first book on the Obama second term reveals devastating hidden histories about the top two Republican and Democratic candidates in 2012 and their aides.

Tune in for a lively discussion on how to glean the truth in the “post truth” era, as well as insights about the late George H. W. Bush, Obama and Romney, and of course the story of how the Lawyers Committee helped break 9/11 truth through the”soundless barrier.”

The Backbone Campaign Combines the Art of War and the Art of Play

An Interview with Bill Moyer, Founder of the Backbone Campaign

“We have one political party with not enough backbone and another with way too much front-bone.” — Swami Beyondananda

Today’s show is about activism — in a time of reactivism.

With so much of the political discourse these days either “pro-Trump” or “anti-Trump” the one common denominator in either conversation is … Trump. As someone who feeds on media attention, he is paradoxically empowered by all the resistance and anti-Trump rhetoric.

Which leads to the question … how DOES the body politic express itself when both electoral politics and the mainstream media seems so shut down to non-corporate views? How do we assert our political will in a way that gets noticed? And how do we influence our elected officials to follow when they are unable to lead?

Our guest this week Bill Moyer, co-founder of the Backbone Campaign is a master of what he calls “artful activism”designed not just to help the Democratic Party “get some backbone”,but to empower citizens to act strategically and change the “political calculus” — i.e., to change the game from reactive to proactive. When we get ourselves off of the battlefield our opponents have already “fixed” and on to a new playing field,breakthrough can occur.

BILL MOYER is a fourth generation Washingtonian who lives with his wife and daughter in the woods of Vashon Island near Seattle. He co-founded the Backbone Campaign and has served as executive director since 2004. A leader in the theory and practice of artful activism, Backbone combines lessons of the performing arts with grand strategic principles from the Art of War to invigorate nonviolent social change movements. Bill and his Backbone colleagues have designed and produced hundreds of creative protests and trained thousands of change agents. They have helped transform mundane demonstrations into cultural happenings with innovative tactics like spotlights to project messages onto buildings, and helped introduce the world to kayaktivism during the sHellNo! campaign to stop Arctic drilling.

Bill also directs the Solutionary Rail project to plot a path for the US to transform a broken and dangerous railroad business model into a catalyst for social and environmental solutions that can act as an integral component of a just transition to sustainable society. Bill is proud to provide this strategic tool to bring together unlikely allies in otherwise divisive times.

Not only does the “backbone” represent steadfast courage, it also represents the nervous system that potentially unites the body politic to become “upstanding citizens.”

If your curious as to how ordinary citizens can act locally — playfully and effectively — to create change at the national level,tune in this Tuesday, December 11th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/ to find out.

The Eisenhower Moment – Part II

An Interview with Simon Anholt, Founder of “Good Country”

“It’s time to evolve from children of God to adults of Good.” — Swami Beyondananda

Nearly 60 years ago, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.”

I’ve been calling the times at hand “the Eisenhower moment” because we the people finally have the technological capability to communicate instantly and speak in one voice.

Last week we spoke with Australian visionary activist Andrew Gaines about what he calls the Great Transition Initiative – a citizen led educational “movement of movements” to inspire mainstream commitment to transitioning to a life-affirming culture.

A worthy intention, and a great beginning…

And, the next question is, how will this intention be manifested, populated, and turned into a tangible movement for transformation?

My guest this week, Simon Anholt, introduces a new worldwide platform called Good Country which has the ambitious intention of creating and populating the world’s next super-power — the awakening population of the world acting in one accord as one “virtual country”.

Simon Anholt is an independent policy advisor based in the UK who has worked to help develop and implement strategies for enhanced economic, political and cultural engagement with many countries around the world. His TED talk on the “Good Country Index” has 5.5 million views, and as he will tell you has led to this exciting new platform.

After receiving some 20,000 emails from around the world from people who identified with a “good” country — i.e., one who collaborates to bring goodness to the world — Simon and his colleague Madeline Hung set about to find out how many other people around the world felt the same way. After two years of research they determined about 10% of the world’s population — some 700 million people — shared this global view. While 10% might seem like a modest figure, a country with a population of 700 million would be the third most populous country in the world, behind China and India and ahead of the U.S.

That’s when the idea emerged … why don’t we start a “virtual country”? As their website overview says: “We’re starting a new country. A country defined not by borders but by values. A country made up of hundreds of millions of people around the world, all motivated by a shared desire to make the world work better. A country with the power to bring about real change in the international community.”

Can a new virtual country with millions of awakened citizens actually spark collaboration among nations? How is this potentially world-changing institution being created, and how can you become a part of it?

The Great Transition To A Life-Affirming Culture

An Interview with Andrew Gaines, Founder of The Great Transition Initiative

“Either we will have an awakening or we will have a wake.” — Swami Beyondananda

In these times of great crisis and opportunity, there’s an idea that has gotten ahold of me that I call “The Eisenhower Moment”. Nearly 60 years ago, President Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.”

As more and more of us are coming to understand, “peace” means more than an absence of war — although that would be a terrific beginning. Peace means the end of domination, one over the other. It means fundamentally adopting and applying the Golden Rule. And more apparently than ever before, it means living in harmony with the natural world.

As the crises — ecological, economic, political, social and spiritual — seem to all be arising at once, maybe we are at that moment where a critical mass of the heretofore uncritical masses can speak in one coherent voice and say, “We want THIS.”

Certainly we have the means to communicate ideas and memes instantly across the globe, and nearly two thirds of the humans on the planet have a cell phone or personal device. That means that “humanity” can be mobilized around an idea or issue almost instantly…

Would it make a difference?

Perhaps it’s the only thing that will.

Our guest this week, Andrew Gaines, an Australian visionary, activist and systems thinker has dedicated his life to bringing about such a “movement of movements.”

He is a co-leader in the Great Transition Initiative – a citizen led educational movement to inspire mainstream commitment to transitioning to a life-affirming culture. Through a personal epiphany he became committed to the wellbeing of coming generations. Andrew recognizes that the long-term survival of humanity is in jeopardy, and he embraces the adage to change the system, change the thinking. As a Feldenkrais practitioner, psychotherapist and creativity trainer he is well-positioned to act on this adage. He sometimes says, “I help good brains work better.” His books include Kitchen Table Conversations, The Witness: Gateway to Self-Development, and Creative Conversations. He is trained in improvisational acting, Aikido, Tai Chi, and The Natural Step, a way of working out whether a business or a country is ecologically sustainable. He is a former naval officer with a degree in philosophy.

One of the problems in addressing climate change — and other massive issues confronting our entire species — is that our tendency is to try to fix things around the edges, so that we can keep things “normal.” The problem is, that things are changing so rapidly that we cannot go backward to previous ideas of normal. We are being pulled forward into the unknown, like it or not. As Andrew points out, the climate crisis cannot be addressed, let alone resolved, by tweaking things around the edges. A systemic transformation is needed.

So… how can that transformation come about — other than by utter collapse of the system as it is?

How can the people of the world be mobilized, not just to rail in anger but to work together toward practical, breakthrough solutions?

How do climate change educators break through the walls created by the two “drugs” of “hopium” (imagining things will just get better on their own) and “deniatol” (problem? what problem?) to mobilize our individual and collective creativity and focus?

Radical Honesty in a Time of Fake News and Real Lies

An Interview with Psychotherapist Brad Blanton, Author of Radical Honesty

“The truth shall UPSET you free.” — Swami Beyondananda

I first met Brad Blanton nearly 25 years ago, when his controversial book Radical Honesty: How To Transform Your Life By Telling The Truth, was first published. Our joke at that time was that our President, Bill “I-did-not-have-sex-with-that-woman” Clinton was a practitioner of “sporadical honesty.”

We have now collectively evolved (or devolved) to a place where our current president practices “radical dishonesty”, and where paradoxically his followers consider him trustworthy because he is “honest” about being a liar. Think about it. What other politician in recent memory has been celebrated for “telling it like it is” while so blatantly telling it like it isn’t?

My guest this week, Brad Blanton will offer his “radically honest” perspective on the “shituation”, and — knowing Brad — you can expect a wild ride that will leave you both elevated but with “feet on the ground.”

Brad Blanton, Ph.D is a psychotherapist, author, workshop leader, speaker, and the founder of Radical Honesty Enterprises. Dr. Brad Blanton describes himself as “white trash with a Ph.D.” Armed with quick wit and an engaging Southern accent, he speaks with an unwavering honesty that is both disarming and challenging, a quality that has earned him admirers as well as detractors.

His first book, Radical Honesty: How To Transform Your Life By Telling The Truth, became a nationwide best seller in 1996 and has been translated into twelve languages and published around the world. The revised edition was released by Sparrowhawk Publications in April, 2005.

His second book, Practicing Radical Honesty: How to Complete the Past, Live in the Present and Build a Future with A Little Help From Your Friends, is about the relationship between personal transformation and social transformation. In 2002, consistent with that same theme, he published Honest to God: A Change of Heart that Can Change the World (with Neale Donald Walsch). Also in 2002, he published Radical Parenting: Seven Steps to a Functional Family in a Dysfunctional World, which is about child rearing, and Brad says it is the most radical book he has ever written.

Brad has twice been an independent candidate for Congress from his rural home district in Virginia, running against Republican Eric Cantor, who later served as House Minority Whip.

The Order of the Sacred Earth – A Truly NEW World Order to Help Us Overgrow the “Old World Odor”

An Interview with Sacred Order Co-Founders Skylar Wilson and Jennifer Berit Listug

“Earth — love it or leave it.” — Swami Beyondananda

“I promise to be the best lover and defender of the Earth that I can be.”

Can taking such a vow make a difference?

Skylar Wilson and Jennifer Berit Listug, our guests on Wiki Politiki this week think so. They, along with Matthew Fox, the noted priest and father of Creation Spirituality, have founded a “spiritual order” for our times, the Order of the Sacred Earth.

I am reminded of a famous Gandhi quote. When asked what he thought of Western Civilization, he replied, “I think it would be a very good idea.”

While our civilization has excelled at science, technology, and the gleaning of material knowledge, we seem to be on the verge of flunking Wisdom 1.1. Ever since we put Descartes before the horse nearly four centuries ago, society has focused its attention on the material world as the be-all and end-all. And the “end-all” idea may be exactly where we are headed.

Thanks to focus on the rational mind at the expense of the intuitive, and the patriarchal notion of man “dominating” nature, we have continued to act as if that’s true, at our peril. As Paul Ehrlich famously said, “Nature bats last,” and she has some heavy hitters coming up — fire, tornadoes, hurricanes and floods. At a time when precious little is considered sacred anymore, and when we humans have spiraled dangerously outside the web of life, the intention of the Order of the Sacred Earth is to unite spirit and matter in one movement. As they write:

At this critical time in human and planetary history, the world does not need a new religion or even a reshuffling of our old religions. It does not need a new church either. What it needs is a new Order: a community and movement of people of varied belief systems (or non-belief systems) who share one sacred vow: to preserve Mother Earth and to become the best lovers (mystics) and defenders (warriors) they can be on behalf of Mother Earth. A post-denominational Order and a post-religious Order. Therefore, a Spiritual Order.

And yet another quote, this one from Albert Einstein: “The field is the sole governing agency over the particle.” Most social change movements have been about moving the “particle” — working on the symptoms of issues rather than facing and confronting the “field” — of beliefs, misperceptions and institutions — that “move” the particles of our every day activity.

If a spiritual order that holds Earth sacred seems like a “tall order”, it may be the one thing to cohere a movement of movements so that collectively we shift from “takers” to “givers”, from exploiters to stewards, from alienated individuals to loving community.

Can a “spiritual order” help spark and empower a truly NEW world order? Join us this Tuesday, November 13th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/ to find out.

Donald Trump Is Awakening People, Left and Right

Donald Trump Is Awakening People, Left and Right

An Interview with Dr. Chuck Baldwin, Moral Majority and Christian Coalition Pioneer, and Constitutional Party Presidential Candidate in 2008

“Either we will have an awakening — or a wake.” — Swami Beyondananda

In the summer of 2015, I was waiting to board the Larkspur Ferry to take me to San Francisco for a Giants game. In the waiting area, there was a huge TV screen tuned to CNN. Donald Trump was on, and the sound was off.

As I watched Trump’s gesticulation, facial expressions, and fist pumping, I looked at a fellow passenger, and we both said it at the same time — Adolf Hitler.

Now more than three years later, I have seen nothing to make me think otherwise. What was clear to me then is even clearer now. What I was looking at was a megalomaniacal sociopath, who would do anything and say anything to benefit himself, and who would ultimately destroy whatever he touched. I saw a pathological liar and demagogue, with no respect for the rule of law — or the rule of love.

While we have seen “dishonest” politicians before, and those involved in deep, dark misdoings, what I was looking at was someone entirely different and more sinister — someone who had the mindset and the chutzpah to make himself dictator. You might laugh at this individual who has been parodied and caricatured as a bumbling fool. They laughed at Hitler too. While Donald Trump is no “Hitler” in the sense that he has no overriding mission or ideology, his rhetoric landed with the same kinds of ordinary folks who supported Hitler.

At the Unrig the System conference in New Orleans this past February, I met a number of (oxymoron alert) “moderate Republicans” who saw the clear and present danger not just in Trump, but in the Vichy Republicans in Congress blindly following him. I met Richard Painter, a former Bush administration official who has officially changed parties and became a Democrat running for the Senate in Minnesota. Since that time he has been joined by Republicans Steve Schmidt and most recently Max Boot, who exhorted moderate Republicans to vote Democrat this year in an attempt to stop that other “boot” — Jack Boot — from having control of all three branches of government and establishing a de facto fascist regime.

Something that has been both puzzling and vexing to most observers, however, is how so many Evangelical Christians have fallen into lockstep behind Trump, despite the man’s — to put it too gently — “moral failings.”

Our guest on Wiki Politiki this week has the perspective and background to speak to this issue. Dr. Chuck Baldwin is a conservative Christian minister, a disciple of Jerry Falwell and a founder of the Christian Coalition. After becoming a Republican in 1980 to support Ronald Reagan, he left the party during the George W. Bush presidency to join Ron Paul’s Constitution Party. Without compromising his conservative ideas — he is a Second Amendment advocate who believes in “open carry” — he offers his view of how and why the majority of his cohorts have taken the wrong road, and have become in his words “infatuated with” Donald Trump, whom he sees as an enemy of freedom, and everything the United States stands for.

On this very significant Election Day, which will — rightly or not — be an up or down vote for Donald Trump, tune into this highly-unusual interview and you’ll be encouraged that the “great upwising” and awakening is occurring on all sides.
