Author of Is It Organic?
Sorry friends. What you think about organic food is mostly wrong. The global organic industrial-complex promises everything and delivers nothing. But don’t blame organic farmers! They’re victims, along with millions of consumers. Being organic is no longer about farming fields. It’s about filling forms. Your taxes underwrite this marketing subterfuge and help drive a stake into the heart of the most efficient food system ever known. Who’s behind this? You’ll be surprised. Organic farming began in England as a Christian movement. Organic farmers in the United States and Canada overwhelmingly identify as conservatives, and until 1997 their industry actually had a sound scientific basis, subject to free-market rules with no government interference. But you’ll never hear about that from the pro-organic media, or about the key role Presidents H.W. and G.W. Bush played in vaulting organics from hippie movement to multi-billion-dollar industry. Is it Organic? is a tell-all history by an industry insider who saw too much to keep quiet. Organics can get back to basics by producing food using age-old methods like natural composting, or it can be ruled by banality, fraud and eco-politics. As far as government and urban activists are concerned, farmers, the environment and consumers are mere afterthoughts. And, like it or not, you’re footing the bill.
Author Mischa Popoff was an Advanced Organic Farm and Process Inspector, inspecting over 500 organic farms and processing facilities on both sides of the U.S.-Canada border.
“Is It Organic?” is his 2011 industry-insider exposé of the organic food industry.
He escaped Commie Canada eight years ago, “just before things went full Communist.” Canada’s now in total lockdown; sex education is being taught in kindergarten, and doctors are performing birth-day abortions and “partial birth abortions.”
He now lives in Royse City on the outskirts of Dallas, Texas.
“How did you get into organic?.” asks Patrick. The farm Mr. Popoff was born on in Saskatchewan was one of the first to go organic in 1991. They started growing organic hemp in 1998.
From 1997 to 2001, organic certification was regional only, then was turned into law, and the CCOF became a bureaucratic nightmare, more interested in paperwork than in any actual organic oversight.
Does the label “organic” have the same standard today as it did before the CCOF was created?
Is hydroponic farming considered organic, and is it grown commercially?
What part did the former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman play in the labeling of organic food? Since “organic” became national, inspectors doubled their staff every time the administration changed from Clinton to Obama, and the same thing for Trump.
Organic farmers now have to spend at least 15 hours a week doing paperwork after paying $1,000 up front, and they have to pay ongoing royalties as well.
The paperwork saying foods are organic is all Bernie Madoff-style documentation. The promised “fork to field” records are a fantasy.
Is the label “organic” domestic or is it an international standard? Is the USDA logo exploitable?
Is the juice labeled “organic apple” truly organic, or could the apples be from China, and be non-organic?
Who is Miles McEvoy, and what changes did he attempt to make in organic inspections?
Is glyphosate water-soluble? Why is the way it’s used today worse than the way it was formerly used?
How does the forced ripening (desiccation) of wheat, oats, and alfalfa by Roundup Ready affect cattle?
If the grains are desiccated in the fields, the soil is pulverized, turning the land into a dust bowl.
Is it possible for glyphosate to contaminate vaccines?
Patrick and Mr. Popoff discuss the latter’s ancestry. Many of his family who emigrated from Russia in 1898-1899 were Bolsheviks. Some of them returned to Russia and were never heard from again.
Who were the Bolsheviks and who financed the October Revolution? How many Christian churches had the Bolsheviks burned by 1920?
Russia has no GMOs. Why is Russia welcoming Afrikaner farmers?
How did Vladimir Putin upset the international bankers? Why won’t he let the globalists take over in Crimea and Syria?
What did Rudolf Steiner contribute to organic farming? What was his alternative to Fritz Haber’s technology for global food production?
What did the Cornucopia Institute reveal about Horizon Organic Milk? What was the source of their cattle feed?
Other than being GMO, what is the problem with feeding corn to cattle?
Bill Gates and China own much of the farmland in Canada and the U.S. “It is cheaper to buy a country than to invade it,” according to Mr. Popoff.

This show was billed as an exposé by an industry insider on the certification process within the organic food industry. I was not expecting a racist diatribe demonizing “Jewish Globalist Bankers” and “Bolshevik Jews” as responsible for all the ills in the world from the Russian Revolution to the burning down of Christian churches in Russia in the 1800s, subtly linking them to corruption in the organic food industry. It only takes one false statement (and your guest made many) to cast doubt upon everything else he said. Instead of demonizing the Jews, I would advise your guest to do some research into the Kosher Certification process which is much stricter and more honorable than the USDA certification process. While organic certification calls for an annual inspection, kosher certification inspections are commonly performed quarterly, monthly, or more. Whereas organic certification visits are scheduled, kosher certification visits are commonly unannounced, which helps to prevent fraud and to maintain the integrity of the certification process.

Appreciate your comments, yet I think you are not being fair here. The call anyone who criticizes the bankers, Hollywood who happen to be Jewish, as racists is absurd. I think Al Capone was a mobster that should have been in jail early on. So I am a racist against Italians?
And your comments on Kosher is, forgive me, equally absurd, I had a food company for 15 years we got the Kosher label because many religions believe it means something. It was all about the money. Every few months a quasi Rabbi would come, sometimes check the labels of our tomatoes or other ingredients, to see if they had a Kosher label…and boom, he was gone,
Just so you paid them, all was good.

Demonizing the Jews Juliet? That’s absurd. Bolshevik Jews slaughtered millions of Christians in Eastern Europe until their henchman Stalin turned on them in 1952. Meanwhile, rank-and-file Jews were victimized in Palestine right alongside Muslims and Christians by globalist Jews. If you’re a globalist Juliet, you might want to tune in to another show.
Meanwhile, saying Kosher Certification is more honorable than the USDA certification process is like saying a Bolshevik is more honorable than a Maoist. You can start, Julie, by telling me how much field testing the rabbis do when they perform their “commonly unannounced” visits.

my knowledge of pre 1917 revolution Russia is poor…please recommened a few books–maybe focusing on the 19th century forwrd– that may expand my limited understanding of that fascinating time in world history. Thx.

Hi Thor! I highly recommend the books by Eustace Mullins, along with his many interviews. A fascinating guy. Thanks for listening friend.
