Discarded “Briefing Binder” Reveals Corrupt, Deceptive Practices Of Powerful Dairy Lobby

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A 'Briefing Binder' for the lobby representing the Dairy Farmers of Canada found after the Conservative Party’s national convention in Halifax reveals the lengths a lobby group will go to in order to quash legislation that goes against their agenda.

  • Reflect On:

    How much more evidence do we need that the government and the corporate lobbies are working together in their own interests and against the interests of ordinary citizens before we find a way to bring about fundamental change?

If you need any more evidence that our corrupt system of government and its relationship to the corporatocracy needs an overhaul–if not a complete teardown–here’s another piece of documentation to add to the stack.

A Briefing Binder for the lobby representing the Dairy Farmers of Canada was found abandoned on the floor after the Conservative Party’s national convention in Halifax, and was made public over the weekend in a series of social media posts by delegate Matthew Bexte, a recent University of Calgary economics graduate who lives on his family’s farm near Vulcan, Alta.

Supply Management

At issue here is Canada’s legislative support for ‘supply management,’ a system that allows specific commodity sectors — dairy, poultry and eggs — to limit the supply of their products. Hence, the ‘supplier,’ in this case the Dairy Farmers of Canada, is able to manage and mandate its own supply levels, supposedly to ‘ensure predictable, stable prices.’ In fact, it looks like it is a mechanism that once again is used to enrich the corporatocracy and the very few at the top at the expense of smaller independent suppliers.

Voice Of The People

The main reason this information has come into the public eye is because it got into the hands of a delegate who traveled the length of the country on his own dime (ok, tens of thousands of dimes) to voice his family’s opposition to supply management. The contents of the binder provided a rude and disheartening awakening for Mr. Bexte.

Treasure Trove Of Deceit

This National Post Article does a good job of elaborating upon the various means the Dairy Farmers of Canada lobby were prepared to employ to ensure the continuation of ‘supply management,’ including the use of Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer as a ‘safety net.’ The result of their wining and dining (and likely other) efforts were such that the lobby had ‘been assured by Scheer’s office that he will not put supply management in an electoral platform regardless of the outcome at convention.’ This was especially critical for them at this juncture due to the fact that there was a resolution on the agenda at the convention to “phase out supply management.”

The binder details an incredibly complex Dairy Farmers strategy to quash the resolution before it goes to plenary debate and, failing that, get it defeated. Multiple scenarios are detailed, along with “proposed messaging” for each one. What ended up happening was that the policy was never discussed at an initial breakout session, and thus never came up for debate for inclusion in the Conservative platform. The Dairy Farmers called this a “sub-optimal” scenario since “it buys us a reprieve, but doesn’t put the issue to rest.” What they really wanted was for the policy to be brought up at the initial session and then immediately dismissed, something the Dairy Farmers assumed would “discourage supporters of this motion from trying again.” Nevertheless, the “proposed messaging” for the “sub-optimal” outcome was to say that “there are still some voices in the Conservative Party that have yet to fully understand why supply management is good for Canadians.”

What is perhaps most ironic is that in the past, much of the focus of the Dairy Lobby was the meticulous (and patently false) portrayal of the vast majority of Canadian dairy producers as “just a bunch of humble family farms trying to make a living.” Now, thanks to the power of social media, one of those humble family farms might become a catalyst for their undoing.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.
