WATCH: Bayer + Monsanto = A Match Made in Hell

James Corbett of the Corbett Report looks at the implications of the Bayer takeover of Monsanto

It is hardly surprising that the first thing Bayer did after completing their takeover of Monsanto earlier this month was to announce that they were dropping the Monsanto name, merging the two companies’ agrichemical divisions under the Bayer Crop Science name. After all, as everyone knows, Monsanto is one of the most hated corporations in the world. But Bayer itself has an equally atrocious history of death and destruction. Together they are a match made in hell.

    Monsanto and Bayer ! Well Bayer, if I remember correctly, used another name previously, I think it was IG Farben, now that name did become tainted somewhat, a few years ago, anyways there was a war with a guy who looked like Chaplin, and they provided color for his house and he did not like it and blamed on some people from the middle East and then the Chaplin guy had a fit and everyone went to war. So sure IG Farben were not popular! but they changed the name and everyone was happy, Monsanto doing the same because of some seedstuff, that are not really poisonous, just a little.
    So we in reality have two chemical giants: Dow DuPont and Bayer Chemie , both are very nice companies, good wages, nice benefits, fine enumeration packagees, all good. I hear Bayer is also considering a daughter company in India, exiting!! (Unless you are Indian)

      “…Bayer, if I remember correctly, used another name previously, I think it was IG Farben, now that name did become tainted somewhat, a few years ago […] but they changed the name and everyone was happy,”

      IG Farben was formed from a merger of several petrochemical and related companies, including Bayer and BASF, in a “market optimizing” move at a time when international competition was rising and agglomeration everywhere in the west was then, as now, the plat du jour of the profit-extracting racket. After the second World War the Allies split the IG Farben conglomerate, with which a number of American corporations had rather embarrassing links, back into most of its original constituent companies, including Bayer and BASF, in part as part of the international sanitization of the German war machine, but mostly as part of the construction of the world empire of the United States of Robber Barons that kicked off its imperial theft of everyone else’s assets with Bretton Woods and has continued with that successful but resource-limited scam’s stunningly successful successor, the Kissinger-Nixon-Saudi axis of fiat petrodollars.

      No change of company name, just a change of corrupt management. If you get your information while assuming the posture of a bottom feeder, most of what you ingest will be bullshit from the slaughterhouse floor.

  2. So “Bayer Crop Science” will be the new package for old Monsanto Roundup, a weedkiller with many toxic effects on human and other animal life.

  3. I am willing to take a serious wager with anybody: that unless I mention the fact , nobody is going to make the connection to the reality of Bayer & Weaponised Weather and the blockbuster film of 9/11 .. ?

    Come on then: can somebody actually put the pieces of this Scientific Jigsaw together, other than me ?
    Of course, employees of GCHQ & the NSA & Mossad are prohibited from this wager, unless they wish to search alternative employment and risk their & their families lives & livelihoods ..

    What Bayer also used to make: Bayer Heroin strong cough syrup. Good for children, the advertisements said. What did they know?

    They still don’t ‘know’

    But Bayer did make a ‘killing’ out of it

    Bayer still does, but now with Monsanto and other drugs, so it goes.

    • Robbobbobin says

      Heroin, although highly addictive, is not in and of itself, more dangerous to addicts – who, with a good quality, dose-reliable supply, can live long and productive lives – than many other, often more dangerous addictives, from video games (the latest on the official list) to militarism (their politically unlistable sibling). It was developed by a British scientist with the best of intentions and later adapted, for large scale manufacturing by Bayer – along with other drugs like aspirin – who ceased production before the first World War, when its addictive properties were clearly open to abuse by societal elements far beyond its circle of addicts. Bayer may have been culpable in delaying that cessation beyond a responsible precautionary level of evidence but they were not the originators of societal opioid abuse, nor the worst of its actors. For just one example, the British abuse of the Chinese in the matter of the opium trade comes to mind.

    While the bulk of our Western populations continue in ignorance and a blind refusal to face the death and destruction path put in place by the current criminal elites we will continue to fight hopelessly and endlessly to our death. That the makers of agent orange, cancers, WW1 gasses, the Roundup Ready I see poured on gardens, on paths, by Councils, by farmers,
    is widely available and encouraged to use by our so called leaders, is an abomination. That we have reached such an impasse is a reflection on humanities inability to survive against a sociopathic plan to systematically destroy us. We are too flawed, too greedy, not advanced enough in terms of long term focus and the essential critical thinking that is necessary for our survival.

      The very rapid spread of oceanic dead-zones of deoxygenated and warmed waters, the latest reported from Martinique, with fish deaths etc, shews that The End is probably much quicker than even the Near Term Extinction happy-go-luckies thought. Do we care? Are you kidding? Apparently the oceans now contain one ten thousandth the fish stocks of 150 years ago. That is 0.01%. Homo sapiens????

    How does it go again ? _ _ _ _
    Yeah.
    A Turd by any other name, is still a TURD.
    Thanks Bill.

    Just to add to the video, Bayer also sold factor 8 blood clotting medication laden with Hepatitis C as well as HIV knowingly in Ireland they had the minister for health Michael Noonan sign an indemnity to prevent litigation, which he gladly did, this wasn’t just confined to haemophiliacs but also to women receiving the Anti-D injection after birth, this caused deaths in both groups, he was rewarded the position of minister for finance.
