Senate GOP Betrayal on S.510
A Personal Response

Last last night, while pretending to debate the START treaty, the GOP in the US Senate betrayed their strongest supporters and, after promising us never to do so, gave unanimous consent to move the fake "food safety" bill (really, the "food control" bill) S.510 to the House for lame-duck passage.

Revised Action Item here: Tell the House "No!"

Why would the Senate GOP send this major increase in Federal power to the House now, when the GOP will take over that body in a couple weeks? That is a good question. The answer is that the GOP is bought-and-paid by BigAgBiz and the rest of the crony ant-free market companies that want to crush local, independent, natural food production and distribution!

The GOP has specifically betrayed the Tea Party, both major arms of which came out strongly against the bill. That is how powerful the economic interests are that directed this betrayal.

I should have known better than trust the GOP.

After being a Youth for Goldwater in '64 I became active in the GOP as a college student, even going so far as to vote for (I confess) Nixon the first time I was allowed to vote, in '68.

During the Summer of '69 libertarians were expelled from both SDS and YAF (Young American Foundation, formerly Young Americans for Freedom, but they dropped the Word) I was booted from YAF while other people were expelled from SDS).

I quit the GOP and worked with libertarian, taxpayer and health freedom people on issues like re-legalizing private ownership of gold (Ron Paul's first great victory for the Constitutional Republic); the Jarvis Tax Revolt, monetary policy, health and food freedom issues (all while practicing law for 36 years, -- its been a busy few decades!

Then in '08 I rejoined the GOP at Ron Paul's call, to support his candidacy, in the hope that there might be one major party that could support the restoration of the Constitutional Republic. That was a forlorn hope. No tax-eater party will ever be able to rescue us from the fiscal disaster that looms closer every day.

I am now printing out the New Jersey online form to leave the GOP again. I'm re-registering as a member of the Libertarian Party. That's my personal response to the S.510 betrayal. And I'm sending the Speaker-Designate and the Senate Minority Leader emails -- withdrawing the consent of the victim!

Action item against S.510 linked from here:

Clearly, a serious transpartisan third-way needs to come together to stop the dead-end process of "government growing to meet the needs of a growing government..."

Only then can we stop the White House's Leninist program of "seizing the commanding heights of the economy" -- including nationalizing food production oversight. Only then can we hope to restore the Republic.

Revised Action Item here: Tell the House "No!"

No one's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session.

"No one's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session." Judge Tucker

Unfortunately both lame-duck Houses of Congress are in session a few more days before the new Congress convenes in January. The House passed a very short term Continuing Resolution on Friday, pushing the govt shutdown off to December 21st, Tuesday.

The Republicans wanted the CR to go to February so the new Congress, in which they will have more power, could convene and deal with it; the Democrats originally wanted the "Omnibus Bill" (in reality, the twelve budget bills they could not pass this year, cobbled together) since that bill would have tied the new Congress to increased spending levels. The very short term CR was the compromise to prevent govt shut down.

So, defeating the omnibus bill was good; better even, since the fake "food safety" (really "food control") bill S.510 was hidden in the omnibus bill.

But the short term CR means the lame duck leadership has one more shot at the "Omnibus" target before going out of business: the first few days of next week. That agenda still includes S.510!

CNN reported Friday night: "Democrats then wanted to attach [S.510] to a narrower government-funding bill that is expected to pass Saturday but Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma, warned he would object if they did. A GOP leadership aide told CNN it would be impossible to approve the food bill quickly unless all Republicans support doing so. Coburn has said he opposes the bill because, he claims, it spends billions and increases government regulations without actually making the food supply safer. A Democratic leadership aide held out hope an 11th hour deal could save the bill the GOP leadership aide warned that it is not likely."

This is the critical moment when the Federal control agenda will be pushed and while we were all rightfully focused on various bad bills, Leninist food controls will be imposed unless we remain vigilant!

Please continue to PUSH BACK at least daily against this possibility over the next few days, using this Action Item:

Omnibus Bill to Thwart Voters' Will? Senate May Vote Today -- PUSH BACK TO STOP IT!

12.16.10 Update: Food Control May be Stopped!
New Action Item Here:
This lame-duck Congress is apparently seen by certain politicians as their last hurrah… Hurray! But clearly this is also a dangerous moment. We need to PUSH BACK now more than ever!

In addition to the Continuing Resolution, sent to the Senate after being passed by the House (HR. 3082, which had the fake “food safety” bill S.510 hidden in it) the Senate “leadership” is considering an omnibus budget bill, crabbing together all of the 12 sectional budget bills Congress failed to pass, and putting S.510’s new food-control bureaucracy into the witches’ brew for good measure!

Opposition to the Omnibus Bill is running up to about 1,750 people an hour through the Health Freedom USA educate-decision-makers, easy to use, email system; just put in your zip code and a bit more info, and your emails are on their way to your Senators and the White House. Various patriot and civic groups are urging their supporters to express opposition, so the total PUSH BACK is even stronger... and growing!

The Continuing Resolution can only pass over the minority’s objection if the majority forces the issue through cloture (limiting debate). Since the majority party lost its 60 vote super-majority, needed to invoke cloture, the only way either bill will pass is if certain faint-of-heart members of the minority party support it! It took several Senators — including Massachusetts’ new Sen. Scott Brown who was elected with Tea Party support — to pass S.510 the first time in the Senate. If these Senators hold firm, this will not happen again! If they side with the majority party, we expect the voters will remember. And even six years from now Sen. Brown will be held to the promises he ignored!

The email system’s action item against the Omnibus Budget-Busting Bill with S.510’s fake “food safety” bureaucracy tucked into it, is here: [superceded - see above]

Says General Stubblebine, President of Natural Solutions Foundation:

“The smell of victory is in the air… we must encourage the faint-of-heart Senators to persevere. And get ready to blast ‘em if they turn-tail to run! By the end of any battle, both sides are exhausted, but the side that perseveres just a little longer… wins! That is where we are now, and that is why massive Push Back is more important now than before! We are flooding the Senate with a clear message: No New Programs in the Continuing Resolution or Omnibus Bill; Strip S.510 out of any funding bill! Keep at it! Victory is within our reach. Keep pressing forward while you recruit your contacts to act with you now!”

House Passes 'Food Safety' Hot-Potato Back to Senate

Action Item Updated:

For those of you who didn't follow the events on Twitter or C-Span, the House lame-duck "leadership" pushed the "Food Safety" Bill, formerly known as S.510 into the "Continuing Resolution" Funding Bill to keep the Federal Govt running for another year, pass this Hot Potato to Senate again Wednesday 12.08. The Senate could act Thursday, December 9th.

It is apparent how important this fake "food safety" bill is to The Powers That Be -- it is very unusual to attach a major regulatory initiative to the Continuing Resolution.

Why was this legislative maneuver wrong? Two reasons. First, the contents of S. 510 is anti-health, anti-supplements, anti-freedom, anti-small business and anti-clean food to say nothing of anti-sense. Second, the regulatory language of S. 510 should never have been attached to a Continuing Resolution, which is an administrative bill allowing the government of the United States to continue its activities by funding them.

The House vote appears to have been 212 to 205, with no Republicans voting for the bill. The next step is to continue inundating the Senate with voter outrage.

1. It is bad legislative practice to combine a controversial regulatory bill with the Continuing Resolution needed to fund govt activities.

2. It is unprincipled to push this bill against the clear will of the voters that the Federal govt is too big and must stop over-regulating.

3. A clean Continuing Resolution is needed so that Congress can decide to continue funding at a certain level without muddying the process with extraneous matters.

4. The vote was nearly a pure partisan vote, with no Republicans in favor of this maneuver, and only a few Democrats standing against the lame-duck "leadership." We will remember!

5. The People will keep a close eye on all GOP Senators and expect them to act from principle and not add this budget-busting bill, with its 4,000 new FDA agents to harass local food production and distribution.

We were "on the Hill" today to let our friends in Congress know that "CAM" health care practices (what we prefer to all "Complementary and Advanced Modalities") need to have a voice in the debate over health care and to re-enforce our opposition to S.510, the fake food safety bill.

We agree with Congressman Paul (who we also saw today) that it is bad legislative process to tack a a very controversial regulatory bill to the Continuing Resolution needed to fund govt activities.

This bill will impact dietary supplements. That is clear from the way the FDA used section 301(11) of the 2007 FDA "enabling act" to outlaw a form of Vitamin B-6, although Congress put a clause in that bill "exempting" DSHEA products.

FDA will use any new food authority to attack supplements and natural remedies.

Please help us stop S.510 as a tack-on via HR 1755 to HR 3082.

Kill the Bill! Vigilance Needed! S.510 Not DoA Yet!


"Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty—power is ever stealing from the many to the few…. The hand entrusted with power becomes … the necessary enemy of the people. Only by continual oversight can the democrat in office be prevented from hardening into a despot: only by unintermitted Agitation can a people be kept sufficiently awake to principle not to let liberty be smothered in material prosperity." Attribution: Wendell Phillips, speech in Boston, Massachusetts, January 28, 1852.—Speeches Before the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society, p. 13 (1853) -

Yes, "Eternal vigilance... [and] unintermitted Agitation..." are needed to keep the fake "food safety" bill S.510 and its ugly companions, the criminalization-of-food-speech S.3767 and the discredited dietary supplement "safety" bill S.3002 at bay...

A desperate Senate lame-duck majority sees its last chances to impose Food Fascism on America dwindling fast. The authors of this horror, primarily Reid and Harkin, can be expected to try any maneuver in their parliamentary-bag-of-tricks to sneak S.510 (and perhaps the other bad bills) through Congress during the waning hours of the session... and they have about two weeks to do so!

Says one commentator: "Senate sponsor of "the most dangerous legislation in history" - S 510 - Sen. Tom Harkin (IA) insists they'll find a way to get this FDA food control package through - despite the fact that the House has pointed out its unconstitutionality - (Due to King Harry's Senate passing a law full of new taxes) a job reserved by the U.S. Constitution for the House of Representatives only."


Says Harkin: “nothing is going to kill this bill.”

Let's show him how wrong he is: Please continue to use the Action Item below to bombard the House (which is now the best hope to Kill the Bill) -- Just Vote NO!
