livestock management

 

At the two-hour mark of this long and important video, after the discussion about the book Political Ponerology, psycopathy, and empathy, Catherine Austin Fitts mentions the importance to the global controllers of understanding livestock management.

Aside from my immediate mental association with George Orwell’s book Animal Farm, I also immediately thought of having grown up in the shadow of the scientific experimental farming operation owned by E. Parmalee Prentice, a lawyer born in Davenport, Iowa.  

E. Parmalee Prentice and his wife Alta, daughter of John D. Rockefeller, founded Mount Hope Farm, a fusion of an experimental farm and grand estate.

Its “farmhouse,” an elaborate 72-room Georgian mansion called Elm Tree House, was surrounded by formal gardens.

The Prentice farm house was the scene of many lavish parties. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=9500E5D91F3EE333A25752C3A9619C946294D6CF 

 

The farm, which gradually grew to over 1300 acres during the 1900s, was noted for its success in using genetic principles to improve the yield of potatoes and to boost the production of egg-laying poultry and of dairy cattle.

Mount Hope’s findings were known and used worldwide.  Its publications were translated into many languages, and the farm hosted representatives from dozens of developing countries to study its methods.  Locally, the farm was important because even during the Depression it was a major employer of trades people, domestics, and farm workers; it was the largest contributor to the town’s tax coffers; and it kept many acres of Williamstown land in agricultural use well into the twentieth century.

Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1838 description of the town remains remarkable accurate today.  “I had a view of Williamstown at a distance of a few miles—two or three, perhaps—a  white village and steeple in a gradual hollow, with high mountainous swells heaving themselves up, like immense, subsiding waves, far and wide around it.”

Colonel Eza Parmalee Prentice, though it is unclear how he earned the rank, was the author of the book “Hunger and History”, published by the Caxton Printers of Caldwell, Idaho (1939, 1951). “Besides Hunger And History, he has written several legal works and four volumes dealing with animal husbandry and scientific farming.”.  http://cookbkjj.com/bookhtml/021526.html

The Mount Hope Index was a statistical method to breed better bulls that was developed by E. Parmalee Prentice.

This 475-page book tells in depth the growth of artificial insemination of dairy cattle, especially by tracing the growth of what became ABS (American Breeders Service). Note: I’ll admit to a special interest here as I served as advertising manager for some eight years at this great company in the 1970s.

A.I., new to dairying

Ron Dougan had a close relationship with breeding better cattle dating to 1928 when he discovered the Mount Hope Index, a statistical method to breed better bulls that was developed by E. Parmalee Prentice. Through letters, Prentice visited the Beloit farm and actually brought two young bulls to be tested on the farm with him.

The Rock County Breeders Co-op began operations in 1936 with Ron as secretary, which ultimately triggered a meeting with Rock Prentice (Parmalee’s son) who founded ABS some years later.

Prentice, although a graduate of Yale Law School, had dairy cattle improvement as his real love and goal in life. The book traces his involvement through breeding cooperatives, the American Dairy Cattle Club (registered both purebred and grade animals), Wisconsin Scientific Breeding Institute, a series of seven breeding organizations scattered from coast to coast and the formation of ABS with headquarters in Chicago, later in Madison and then DeForest.

Amos Grundahl, a Rock County farmer and early practitioner of the art of A.I., plays a leading role in the story as manager of the Rock County Breeders Co-op and many years as an ABS representative.

(About Dependence, Facts, History, Labor, Man, Time)

If anyone wants to understand the course of man on earth, he must consider the fact of the long pause, three million years on the level of savagery, ten thousand years on the level of dependence on the fruits of hand labor, and a hundred or a hundred and fifty years of sudden sharp rise. One hundred or 150 years is the time included in what we call progress in man’s history.

Colonel Ezra Parmalee Prentice

In the early 1920’s Ezra would become acutely aware of and concerned with the increased global population and the interplay of hunger and history.  Mt Hope Farm would be used to conduct research to improve farm animals, poultry, sheep, swine and cattle and he built a 72 room summer home called Elm Tree House on Mount Hope Farm which was completed in 1928

In the census of 1930, Ezra was living with his wife Alta and three children at West Fifty Third Street, New York.  The considered value of his property at that time was $200,000

In the 1930s and 1940s, Ezra employed several geneticists to develop more profitable farm animals, especially cattle and poultry. He would later write a book which was published in 1944 by Harper and Brothers.  The book was called Food, War and the Future which was about agriculture and the supply of food.

A dangerous trend is cementing into place, where GMO foods, aspartame added to milk and cloned meat can all enter the marketplace without being labeled — or even officially announced — to the public.

And while a major controversy has erupted over labeling genetically modified food staples, commonly mixed in with a wide array of foods, we are told that cloned beef may not even be identifiable or distinguishable, and may already be in our food supply.

The FDA gave assurances in 2008 that it is totally safe; but if any risks are identified, how will the public even know what’s on the end of its fork? The FDA lifted what was already only a “voluntary” ban on these cloned meats, so it may well have already entered the market — unlabeled.

Even more disconcerting are a few of the major ties found in the history of breeding cattle, chickens and other livestock in this country. The grandson of John D. Rockefeller was Skull & Bones initiate class of 1928 John Rockefeller Prentice — a pioneer of artificial insemination whose firm revolutionized the breeders market from a regional-only stud basis to the capability to sire “genetically superior” cattle nationally and worldwide with ease – both for beef and dairy production — through the possibilities afforded by freezing bull semen.

Prentice’s life work was shaped by that of his parents. His mother, Alta Rockefeller Prentice, the third daughter of robber baron John D. Rockefeller, made Prentice the descendent of the world’s most prominent eugenics family. His father, Colonel Ezra Parmalee Prentice, was a leading Chicago lawyer, part of a prestigious firm. Alta and Ezra purchased a 1,400 acre tract in Massachusetts circa 1910, constructed a 72-room mansion, called Elm Tree House, they considered a “summer home” that was completed by about 1928. The estate, known as Mount Hope Farms, was a leading experimental breeding farm, and employed several geneticists throughout the 1930s and 1940s who worked to produce more profitable livestock, notably cattle and poultry.

The advances made at Mount Hope provided the foundation for John Rockefeller Prentice’s work in cattle breeding.

His company American Breeders Service (ABS), founded in 1941, became a giant in the industry, and very much on the cutting edge of artificial insemination and, eventually, cloning. By 1953, it was the first to produce a living calf in the U.S. from frozen semen. Prentice sold the company to W.R. Grace amid failing health ahead of his death in 1972. By 1988, ABS Global Inc. became the first firm to clone bulls from a split embryo, and later, by 1997 achieved a major breakthrough, cloning the first cow from a single somatic cell, then under ownership by Protein Genetics, Inc.

Today they have been absorbed by Genus, plc. and are part of a major biotech enterprise servicing 3 million beef and dairy cows produced with ABS semen each year in 70 countries all over the world.

What’s really in your food? And who defines what food is anyway? A clone of a clone of a clone?

It should be noted at the time ABS announced they had unveiled a new stem-cell based technique for cloning cows back in 1997, many leaders in the biotech industry called it a giant leap toward approval for cloning humans. The Sun Sentinel reported:

The apparent ease with which the ABS technique can convert specialized cells into stem cells not only improves the commercial viability of cloning, it also may remove some of the ethical barriers that led the commission to advise against human cloning, Charo said.

“When the presidential commission recommended against human cloning, it did so because we saw the Scottish technique as being too unsafe now to try on human babies,” she said.

“If stem-cell cloning eliminates those safety problems, it moves us forward more quickly to the point at which human cloning is at least safe.” [emphasis added]

As reported in 1997 news articles, the major incentive for ABS Global or any cloning firm is to increase beef production.

In turn, it is hope that cloned animals can aid in increased production through genetic improvement, for more beef and diary products per head, through of course, genetic modification.

Further, as Deseret News reported back in 1997, some hope to add genes for the production of drugs – so-called “pharming” for pharmaceutical drugs and components – using cloned cattle as a viable vector for this production:

Clones, produced without sexual reproduction, are exact genetic duplicates of another animal. Cloned cattle would be useful because they could be genetically manipulated to produce impressive amounts of milk or beef.

[…]

Cloning might also allow the insertion of genes that would cause a sheep or cow to produce drugs or other valuable substances in its milk.

Are any genetically-modified beef products on the market today? Are we eating cloned beef?

Without labeling or any sort of public declaration to confirm or refute this, but rather a laissez faire attitude from the leading federal regulatory agencies, those questions are very difficult to answer.

Many who follow the issue closely say it is only a matter of time, if not already too late.

Changing Poultry Practices

Abstract

Poultry science is entering on a new era, thru discoveries in poultry nutrition which bid fair to introduce radical changes in the practical business of poultry keeping. We have thought for years that free range was needed to secure normal growth in poultry. We have thought that young chicks needed contact with mother earth, but now we are learning how to grow first class chicks in close confinement indoors. Other long standing practices, such as the use of grit and of scratch grain, seem likely to pass into disuse. The new methods promise a complete control of poultry sanitation, for the chicken being a ground feeder has insisted on eating food contaminated by its own excreta. The young chicks are often in contact with older birds, and so soon become infected with a variety of parasites. Mount Hope Farm has been experimenting for a number of years with fresh ground, . . .

high cultural drama

a moment of high cultural drama

{Top image from Rafael Lavenère.} http://www.feterie.com/blog/2010/11/04/inspiration-moment-point-the-way/

I couldn’t help but think (or hope), after watching  Rebekah Roth connect a few more dots, that we may yet reach a moment of high cultural drama and import.  Well, okay, it’ll take a little while while a few more people realize the import of what she has discovered, and it would be helpful if they and the MSM woke up to the import of this story from Down Under.  

On the local level I’ve been able to apologize to my wife for putting her in the broader class we all call sheeple. She knows; she just doesn’t talk about it. 

But if a larger and larger group of people come to knowledge and awareness rapidly enough, we are going to have a sea change. We are going to have the kinds of mass activism discussed by Ray Raphael when he described large numbers of people armed with nothing more than staves massed outside governmental offices while a selected small group of spokespeople seek audience and quietly demand the resignations of the occupants. 

It has been said that the massed perps, using circles, councils, secret societies and symbolic communication, are preparing for such a confrontation and are moving as rapidly as they can without drawing attention to themselves to secure their flight to freedom or their safety behind  barriers of armed protectors. They deny you the right to own a simple weapon; they can buy armored Range Rovers and a squad of special operatives. That we live in a police state that has been heavily militarized for future action against the people can no longer be denied. There is some fear or trepidation that the coming weeks, focused in part on a convergence of world leaders in The Big Apple, signals some major event. [Some are focused on the Pope.] 

But the NYPD will be ready, 

having run a 40-agency tabletop exercise.

 

“Here we go again” may resonate because these people have demonstrated the repeated use of strategic templates, perhaps built upon their own knowledge of  the tools they command.

It is also reminiscement of the penultimate scene of a movie about official involvement in crime and its cover-up in which people came together after hearing the urgent signals of a bell.

 

 

A Wave of Discontent Is Heading Toward Washington 

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that voters are deeply distrustful of politicians and believe that the current political system is dysfunctional.

A whopping 72 percent feel that people in politics can’t be trusted and nearly half of them (48 percent) said they “strongly” feel that way. Republicans in particular want to see an outsider fix the nation’s problems and that is reflected in the latest GOP presidential poll, which has non-politicians Donald Trump (33 percent) and Ben Carson (20 percent) leading the pack by a wide margin. As the first insider, Jeb Bush comes in third at 8 percent.

Overall, 64 percent of voters think the current system is not functional but they prefer it to be patched up (76 percent) instead of tearing it down and starting over (21 percent).

People are apparently comfortable with a representative democracy, or republic, so long as the leadership represents the people. When the leadership acts on their own financial interests, those of a foreign country, those of a system of usurious banking, or acts in ways that are blatantly and openly murderous, destructive and … well, one might use the word evil, they might act in some way that says enough

But the police will be ready with something like a Strategic Response Group

Do the people or the press or the alternative media have anything like a strategic response capability?

Ghettoization of Information

In the simplest expression of the volume and depths of information the informed reader must digest in order to remain informed, there is one item in the  compendium of gleanings — built upon my elongated, irregular and often sloppy perusal of the offerings of news aggregators, op-ed publishers and purveyors of punditry, in this weekend’s case one done in between cat-naps, sleep, meals, errands and the overnight visit of grandkids — that might have passed though the process involving keyboard, mouse and brain without having registered a perturbation of the mind, a raised eyebrow, a sotto voce WTF.

That it was brought to the readers eye without much comment by the service that noted it — beyond the use of a simple exclamation point which itself might have been missed if I hadn’t enlarged the font — is not the fault of the service provider.

The messenger is not responsible for the degree of his readers’ attention or interest.  Indeed, the concise paucity is a statement of the messenger’s respect for the high degree of discernment among his readers. Or maybe he too was hurried, on the way out the door to his other obligations, portable breakfast in hand. But I have a lot of respect for this messenger; it has become a rare day when I don’t include his daily offering in full. 

Attaboys aside, I feel obligated to offer some commentary. 

In this case, we are talking about an 11-word backlink to a story about a moment in time that has resounding implications:

PhD student forced to remove all WikiLeaks references from her dissertation”

The name of the student, and the excalmation point, further alert the reader.

I frankly will be surprised if this matter — no small one at that — doesn’t explode in international debate soon for the simple reason that it explains the degree to which the “cognitive infilitration”, the weaponization of language in the battle of world views, and the intimidation and belittlement of the individual, of sovereign expression, and of the search for accurate, historical fact and truth are at war. 

The author of the Ph.D. dissertation is no stranger to being manhandled during her search for truth. As a Congressional representative well-known for her questioning power, she was shunted out of office by the transfer of AIPAC funds into her electoral opponent’s hands. She called it “political assault”.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=29&v=p-rbw_SLoeA 

It’s about ‘political etiquette’ when one is ‘running for the Hall of Fame of the Grassy Knoll Society”.

So when she chooses to cite an organization which has published information obtained by having broken throuigh a wall of governmental secrecy, of having pierced “cryptography” of black op compartmentalization, her work is immediately denied. 

Are we now into an era in which academic publications must be branded with an asterisk?  

Is historical authorship and academic exploration of political science going to be treated like baseball players on PED’s?

Will there be a fence of segregation between those people who know, having asked and done their research, and those who refuse to know, or even acknowledge reason to ask?

Is 9/11 and the new Jewish question going to more permanently hamstring or channel political discourse?  

9/11 truth has been relegated into its own ghetto. Debates about the role of governmental agencies in the creation of epidemics of addictive drug use (also, notably, focused on ghettos) have already been shunted to the sidelines of political etiquette.

Now we will have pockets of the population under-served by access to facts. 

We see television ads that tell us the revolution will be mobilized, that wireless video streaming will now be available to our androids. 

Daniel Boorstin once likened the information revolution to that of plumbing when he spoke of having “hot and cold running imagery”. From his Wikipedia entry:

Boorstin’s 1961 book The Image: A Guide to Pseudo-events in America is an early description of aspects of American life that were later termed hyperreality and postmodernity. In The Image, Boorstin describes shifts in American culture – mainly due to advertising – where the reproduction or simulation of an event becomes more important or “real” than the event itself. He goes on to coin the term pseudo-event, which describes events or activities that serve little to no purpose other than to be reproduced through advertisements or other forms of publicity. The idea of pseudo-events anticipates later work by Jean Baudrillard and Guy Debord. The work is an often used text in American sociology courses, and Boorstin’s concerns about the social effects of technology remain influential.[4]

“… He claimed that America was living in an “age of contrivance,” in which illusions and fabrications had become a dominant force in society. Public life, he said, was filled with “pseudo-events” — staged and scripted events that were a kind of counterfeit version of actual happenings. Just as there were now counterfeit events, so, he said, there were also counterfeit people – celebrities – whose identities were being staged and scripted, to create illusions that often had no relationship to any underlying reality. Even the tourism industry, which had once offered adventure seekers a passport to reality, now insulated travelers from the places they were visiting, and, instead, provided “artificial products,” in which “picturesque natives fashion(ed) papier-mâché images of themselves,” for tourists who expected to see scenes out of the movies.

Boorstin’s criticism came from the political right. It is in a long tradition of works that warn against the vulgarization of high culture by mass society. In addition, his metaphor was blatantly mccarthyite in inspiration. America, according to Boorstin, was threatened by “the menace of unreality,” which was infiltrating society, and replacing the authentic with the contrived.

As a result, he believed, America was losing contact, not merely with reality, but with the ideals that had given the nation strength throughout its history. In the age of contrivance, American ideals were being replaced by superficial images…..”

Read the dissertation preface where I protest what happened to me and restate the importance of using all such documents (including COINTELPRO and Frank Church Reports) in fully understanding, U.S. political behavior based on the policies and perceptions of the individuals who make or contribute to the making of it. In my case, I used State Department Cables published in WikiLeaks CableGate and Stratfor e-mails, published in WikiLeaks Global Intelligence Files. Barrett Brown was prosecuted and sentenced to 63 months in prison for merely linking to the Stratfor e-mails published on WikiLeaks.

Troubling Absence

It’s been a year since the troubling absence first showed itself. 

It was like when neighbors notice that no one has stirred over at the house across the street for some time, when there was normally observant activity and occasional pause but where the pause got prolonged and the activity overdue.

I was in the presence of someone who not only had an uncanny insight as well as experience born of age and living life, and insight from long-term observation.  We often delight in the wit of the momentary, the fresh, and the shallow, but we breathe for increased longevity when we take in wisdom of someone who is grounded, uses his hands and his skill for his own livelihood, and takes time to give something back. 

One of the things makes human interaction possible is some congruence in worldview, that and the quickly-discernible fact that the individual sitting oposite you is someone who does his homework.  

He embraced a sentiment he quoted:

“There is no personal gain for me in speaking out; quite the contrary. Why would I or any of the few of the rest of us who do, do so? There must be a reason and I can only think that it is associated with conscience and as reaction against unnecessary injustices perpetrated upon our fellows. Just because it isn’t happening to me does not mean I should ignore it.”

He could call out the facts with the best of them. 

He was an earnest and ardent and unrelenting student of the unrecognized realities of 9/11.

This image is from his PhotoBucket locker. 

He bird-dogged the purveyors of propaganda and warned everyone not to faal for the disinformation. 

To his readers, he brought top-flight educational resources. 

He loved really good rock n’ roll music. 

Five years ago, he said “We may as well go ahead and incorporate the USraeli flag as our new national symbol. At least we could say that it was the most honest thing our government has done in a long long time”

As active and focused as he was on national and international events, he always had time for his home town and the people in it. 

He saw through the Confederate flag nonsense years before it showed up in full bloom. 

He was very well-versed in the JFK assassination, as can be seen here  and  here.

Did I mention that he was an extremely-and-thoroughly-well-read student of 9/11?

He was always active in archival link preservation. You could do worse than to spend a day going through his archives with a semi-automated “save as” hand-and-fingers algorithm.

He had a knack for collecting good comments, and for attracting intelligent commenters, 

He encouraged and celebrated others. See this important re-post as well. 

He welcome me to his neighborhood blogroll.

This was soon after I’d discovered the depth and quality of dialogue in his comments section, how the quality of his regular commenting crowd was driven by the excellence of his posts, how open he was to receiving input, debate and discussion, and how good he was at managing it. 

He set a standard.  

Did he have a portent, an omen, a piece of personal medical knowledge that he kept to himself?

http://kennysideshow.blogspot.com/2014/02/all-things-end.html 

He was deeply respected and loved, as can be seen here.

Even a year later, it is difficult make a more potent and heartfelt statement than the one made here shortly after he left us:

It’s been a year since the troubling absence first showed itself. Funny how it coincides with my brother’s birthday.  Kenny was like family; I wish I’d known him longer, or earlier,  or had the opportunity to have met him.

Kenny, I have tremendous respect for you, I love you, and I miss you.

Pennsylvania GOP’s and Democratic governor’s war against Attorney General Kathleen Kane. Kane was stridently investigating Sandusky case and was indicted by a skanky Zio-con Republican prosecutor, Vetri Ferman, in pedophile-friendly Montgomery County. Like his GOP and Democratic predecessors, Thornburgh and Rendell, Democrat Governor Tom Wolf is on the side of protecting the pedophiles.

Dr Earl Bradley, a pediatrician from Delaware, Pennsylvania. 

Bradley was indicted in February 2010 on 471 charges of molestation, rape and exploitation of 103 child patients. He was charged in April 2010 with an additional 58 offences. (Earl Bradley – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

‘Murdered’ prosecutors PA Gricar and Jonathan Luna

On 4 December 2003, Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan P. Luna was found dead, lying in a stream and stabbed thirty-six times, outside Lancaster, Pennsylvania. (Death of Jonathan Luna – baltimoresun.com)

“According to Fritz Springmeir, after the war Josef Mengele was smuggled to the U.S. to put mind control into practice as one of the CIA’s main mind control programmers. The author of Mind Control The Ultimate Terror credits Mengele with development of the MK Ultra mind control program.”

“Pennsylvania has by far the highest number of child-trafficking organizations.”

98, district attorney Ray Gricar chose not to prosecute Sandusky after reports about Sandusky and boys surfaced.

In 2005, Gricar went missing.

There was an abandoned car and a laptop recovered months later in a river; the hard drive was missing from the computer.

Gricar’s body was never found.

[Ed.: A white ’66 Ford Cortina GT was the first car I ever owned. It took first place on Pirelli tires in the first and only rally it and I ever entered (the unforgettable Dave C. was the navigator) when all of the other entrants got lost worse than we did. The clutch was made of tissue paper and the electronics were British, subject to failure when damp, and indeed the car was consumed at the 36,000 mile mark by a dashboard fire.]

There can be no doubt that the epidemic of heroin addiction is brought to us by the leadership and government of the United States of America. “The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia is a non-fiction book on heroin trafficking in Southeast Asia, which covers the period from World War II to the Vietnam War. Published in 1972, the book was the product of eighteen months of research…”

Media events are a “transplantation of reality” and a “relocation of public space (to the home?)”.

“Scripts” for major media events can be considered enactments of Max Weber’s traditional, rational-legal, and charismatic forms of legitimating authority.

In the middle part of the book, the authors of the book “Media Events: The Live Broadcasting of History”, published in 1994, draw on “empirical studies of major events, on the anthropology of ceremony, the sociology of national integration, and the aesthetics of television”.

The penultimate chapter of the book dwells on what the authors call “shamanic events”– the subset of ceremonial broadcasts that involves a”transformative” dimension.

“Constituting a new television genre, live broadcasts of “historic” events have become world rituals which, according to Dayan and Katz, have the potential for transforming societies even as they transfix viewers around the globe. Analyzing such public spectacles as the Olympic games, the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana, John F. Kennedy’s funeral, the moon landing, and Pope John II’s visits to Poland, they offer an ethnography of how media events are scripted, negotiated, performed, celebrated, shamanized, and reviewed.”
