Congress Moves To End Raw Milk Prohibition Nationwide

Vatic Note:   The absolute Irony of this prohibition on raw milk is the allowance by the federal government for us to eat GMO foods that attack our organs and can cause serious damage and yet they go after a food that has been around and used by our citizens for several hundred years.   Its also proven to be healthy for us, while GMO seed produce has proven to be damaging to us.  Is this the sign of a fascist government where corporations control what we can eat and what we cannot eat???  I think so.

I am glad someone in Congress has the cajones to stand for the people for a change against the big corporate and globalist interests.  Depopulation is on the globalists agenda and that is why we have GMO products while other nations are banning them altogether, due to their damaging properties when it comes to our organs.

I keep remembering the Georgia Guidestones and the attempts that have been made to also grab our guns.  It time we took over and took our government back from the special interests and sold out congress and senate. AIPAC should be sent back home again and forbidden to operate here, except as a foreign interest lobbyist.

FUND RAISING TIME AGAIN.  Its one day past our normal time due to the internet being down here in my town for almost 2 days now.   We could not do our blogs or fund raising campaign.  Now we are back up and asking for donations toward our $340 deficit this month.  If you can afford it, we appeal to you to donate to our cause to keep truth exposed and lies distroyed so we can prepare based on reality.... so help us do that so we can stay on the net to over come the treason being done by our MSM, both left and right.

Thank you for all your support over these many years.  I am still trying to find a way to fund this deficit without fund raising.  So far, no luck, but I am not giving up, so hang with us until we do.  Thank you again and God bless you and your family.

Congress Moves To End Raw Milk Prohibition Nationwide
By JONATHAN BENSON,  Real Farmacy, 

Buying and selling raw dairy products across state lines has been outlawed in the U.S. since the late 1980s, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided that Americans were no longer free to make their own food decisions without government approval. But this senseless and unconstitutional policy of prohibition could soon become history if a bipartisan effort to restore food freedom reaches a breaking point in Congress.

The Interstate Milk Freedom Act of 2014, or H.R. 4307, would lift current FDA restrictions that prohibit all interstate trade involving raw milk. Under the new legislation, farmers who produce raw milk and sell it to eager customers looking for a more nutritious alternative to commercial swill would no longer have to worry about being fined, for instance, or raided at gunpoint by government goons with control issues.

According to Campaign for Liberty, the bill, which was introduced by Representative Thomas Massie of Kentucky, already has broad support on both sides of the aisle. At least 20 lawmakers, including both Republicans and Democrats, have signed on to the legislation which seeks to protect America’s family-scale farmers and restore freedom of food choice for all Americans.

“The ‘Milk Freedom Act of 2014′ would provide relief to local farmers, small producers, and others who have been harassed, fined, and in some cases even prosecuted for the ‘crime’ of distributing unpasteurized milk,” reads a press release recently issued by Rep. Massie. “This bill would prohibit the federal government from interfering with the interstate traffic of raw milk products.”

States that recognize raw milk freedom should be free to trade with one another

A companion bill known as the Interstate Milk Freedom Act of 2014 also addresses the issue of raw milk sales and trade between states where raw milk is already legal. The bill, known as H.R. 4308, would provision that these states be allowed to do business with one another without risking prosecution by the federal government.

According to the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, 11 states currently allow retail sales of raw milk, while another 26 states recognize some form of legal sale either directly from the farm or through farm shares. Each of these states would realize newfound freedom as a result of H.R. 4308, and farmers within these states would be able to expand their businesses and increase the availability of a product that bears increasingly high demand.

“[T]he ‘Interstate Milk Freedom Act of 2014′ would prevent the federal government from interfering with trade of unpasteurized, natural milk or milk products between states where distribution or sale of such products is already legal,” explains a corresponding press release.

Together, the two bills would end the government’s reign of terror over individuals who choose to produce or purchase foods that may not necessarily be mainstream, but that many people want. The government does not have the authority to govern food purchasing decisions, nor does it have any authoritative right to determine what types of foods people can sell or consume.

“Today, many people are paying more attention to the food they eat, what it contains, and how it is processed,” says Rep. Massie. “Raw milk, which has been with us for thousands of years, is making a comeback among these discerning consumers. Personal choices as basic as ‘what we feed our families’ should not be limited by the federal government.”

According to WisFarmer.com, the following legislators are co-sponsoring the Interstate Milk Freedom Act of 2014:

Paul Broun (R-GA), Walter Jones (R-NC), H. Morgan Griffith (R-VA), Andy Harris (R-MD), Raul Labrador (R-ID), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Tom McClintock (R-CA), Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), Ted Poe (R-TX), Jared Polis (D-CO), Scott Rigell (R-VA), Steve Stockman (R-TX), Marlin Stutzman (R-IN), Dana Rohrbacher (R-CA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Scott Perry (R-PA).
