Organic Consumers Association Director Ronnie Cummins, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and Chelsea Green Publishing have filed a federal lawsuit in Washington state against Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) for violating the plaintiffs’ constitutionally-guaranteed free speech, specifically by sending out a letter, reprinted widely in the mass media, demanding that Amazon (and by implication others) stop selling Cummins and Mercola’s best-selling book, The Truth About COVID-19.
Ironically, Senator Warren, a former law professor, in her unsuccessful attempt to gain the Democratic Party nomination for President in 2020, and throughout her political career, has tried to paint herself as an expert on Constitutional law and a progressive champion of free speech, science-based policy, and individual choice.
Warren has threatened Amazon, the nation’s largest bookseller, warning that unless they stop selling the book, The Truth About COVID-19, Congress will pass federal legislation in retaliation that will cost the giant bookseller billions of dollars. In the current politically polarized climate of fearmongering and authoritarianism surrounding the COVID pandemic, social media companies including Facebook, Google, and YouTube, booksellers, and the legacy mass media have joined forces with the Biden administration, Big Pharma, military contractors, and federal health bureaucrats to censor, slander, and suppress alternative information regarding the origins, nature, virulence, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19, in clear violation of the U.S. Constitution.

OCA's sister organization, Regeneration International, is at the forefront of the agricultural solution to the climate change problem.
While it can be easy to feel helpless in the fight against global warming, RI shines as a beacon for the possibilites we have.
The newest vehicle for this is the Regeneration International Podcast. This brand-new podcast features speakers from every continent to present the truly good news about climate stabilizing food production and regenerative systems.
This podcast begins with world-renowned author and activist, Vandana Shiva. She is a co-founder of Regeneration International, and recently spoke as part of the RI/OCA Global Food Summit on World Food Day, October 16.
As Vandana has eloquently explained: “Regenerative agriculture provides answers to the soil crisis, the food crisis, the climate crisis and the crisis of democracy.”

For the past 18 months we’ve been writing about how America’s “Favorite Doctor,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, bears major responsibility for creating the COVID-19 monster, and then covering up its origins and funding, in violation of U.S. and international law. Even the mass media is now being forced to admit that COVID-19 likely came from a dual-use (military and biomedical) lab in Wuhan, China where scientists were carrying out dangerous genetic engineering (Gain-of-Function) experiments, basically weaponizing viruses in improperly regulated, accident-prone laboratories.
This mad science, creating genetically engineered super viruses, was secretly off-sourced to China during the Obama administration, after a temporary ban on GOF experiments in the U.S. The creation of SARS-CoV-2 was, and still is, part of a long-term collaboration by U.S. and Chinese scientists, funded in part by Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, whereby relatively harmless bat coronaviruses were (and are) engineered to become highly transmissible and virulent. One of the reasons the Trump and Biden administrations have not been more forthcoming about the Wuhan Lab origins for COVID, and its USA funding and supposed oversight, is because their top pandemic czar, Anthony Fauci helped create this monster. Now even Newsweek and the majority of the American public want Fauci to be fired. In our opinion he needs to be jailed for lying to Congress this summer and brought to trial, along with the other scientists and funders who carry out reckless GOF experiments. OCA is starting a U.S. and global campaign to shut down all GOF labs and experiments.

Whitney Webb writes: “COVID-19 erased the regulatory and trial-related hurdles that [biotech/vaccine] manufacturer Moderna could never surmount before. Yet, how did Moderna know that COVID-19 would create those conditions months before anyone else, and why did they later claim that their vaccine being tested in NIH trials was different than their commercial candidate?
“While the COVID-19 crisis that emerged in the first part of 2020 can hardly be described as an act of benevolent divine intervention for most, it certainly can be seen that way from Moderna’s perspective. Key issues for the company, including seemingly insurmountable regulatory hurdles and its inability to advance beyond animal trials with its most promising—and profitable—products, were conveniently wiped away, and not a moment too soon. Since January 2020, the value of Moderna’s stock—which had embarked on a steady decline since its IPO—grew from $18.89 per share to its current value of $339.57 per share, thanks to the success of its COVID-19 vaccine…”

Politico writes: “countries… have ramped up action as officials begin to recognize diet-related diseases such as obesity, hypertension and diabetes have made their citizens much more vulnerable during the pandemic. Some states in Mexico recently went as far as banning junk food sales to children — on top of the country’s existing taxes on sugary drinks and fast food. Chile was already deep in its own crackdown on unhealthy products, having imposed the first mandatory, national warning labels for foods with high levels of salt, sugar and fat along with a ban on marketing such foods to kids.
“In Washington, there has been no such wake-up call about the link between diet-related diseases and the pandemic. There is no national strategy. There is no systems wide approach, even as researchers increasingly recognize that obesity is a disease that is driven not by lack of willpower, but a modern society and food system that’s almost perfectly designed to encourage the overeating of empty calories, along with more stress, less sleep and less daily exercise, setting millions on a path to poor health outcomes that is extremely difficult to break from.”

The Washington Post Reports: “Maine voters approved an amendment Tuesday that enshrines the “right to food” — the first of its kind in the United States.
“The amendment to the state’s constitution declares that all people have a “natural, inherent and unalienable right” to grow, raise, produce and consume food of their own choosing as long as they do so within legal parameters.
“It was approved on Tuesday by 60 percent of voters based on unofficial results, according to Ballotpedia. The measure had been approved by the state legislature in May.”

The Origins of the Virus, a new book by Paolo Bernard, Dr. Stephen Quay, and Professor Angus Dalgleish exposes COVID-19 as “crime against global health” committed by the Chinese government, funded, aided and abetted by scientists and institutions in the West.
GM Watch writes:
“Between the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, the authors contend, Beijing intentionally omitted to warn global health authorities and policymakers of the especially infective nature of SARS-CoV-2, even though they were fully aware of it since the early stages of the Wuhan epidemic. Had they done so, they believe, more effective management measures could have been enacted by world leaders and lives would have been spared. In addition, the book concludes that there is “overwhelming” evidence that the virus was genetically engineered for enhanced infectivity in gain-of-function experiments and then escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.”
The authors have faced tremendous obstacles in getting the book published or reviewed. Paolo Bernard lists some of the reasons why the book has been censored in the UK, the U.S. and worldwide:
“NIH (National Institutes of Health) research grants – the fear of losing them, since Fauci is up to his neck in this scandal and desperately wants it to go away;
Academic careers (impossible without said research grants in most Western countries);
Chinese funding of Western universities and scientific journals (hugely expanding);
The hypertrophic reach of political correctness into mainstream media (anyone pointing to China in the COVID story must be by default a racist xenophobic conspiracist and a Trumpist);
Colossal business interests in not triggering an unprecedented commercial/legal confrontation with China;
Biotech interests – don’t alert the public to the insane biotech experiments like gain-of-function, which gave rise to the worst crime against global health in a century.”

OCA and our allies continue to be slandered in the mass media, including recent hit pieces in the NY Times, CNN, and the Daily Beast, fueled by disinformation from front groups and PR firms working for Big Pharma, Silicon Valley, corporate agribusiness, and Big Biotech.
We will not surrender or back down. We intend to step up our truth-telling about the origins, nature, virulence, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19, and the mad science, degenerative food and farming, toxic pollution, medical malpractice, and indentured politics that have poisoned the body politic.
We are under attack, not because we are purveyors of dangerous disinformation and hate, as our corporate adversaries and indentured politicians allege, but rather because, in the midst of an international health, economic, and political crisis, we are trying to expose the truth about the lab origins of this catastrophe, and explain how preventive and natural medicine and health, healthy organic food, natural supplements, low-cost generic drugs, strong immune systems, and a healthy environment are our best defenses against chronic disease and engineered pathogens. We are not anti-vaccine, but rather pro-vaccine safety. We are not purveyors of disinformation, but rather firm defenders of free speech, unobstructed scientific inquiry, and freedom of choice.
The good news is that we’ll never have a better opportunity for organic and regenerative transformation than we have right now. I know that there is a critical mass of people who appreciate what OCA has to say. There are millions who want to know the truth about food, health, and regeneration, both on the personal and the planetary level.
OCA’s fundraising, which depends upon small donors, has fallen by almost 25% over the last two years. We still have 300,000 loyal subscribers to Organic Bytes and two million social media supporters, but we know that the pandemic and lockdowns have taken a toll on many people’s finances.
But today we are asking you to make a sacrifice and donate to us. We need your support more than ever.
OCA’s top donor, Mercola.com, has pledged to match every dollar that you give us over the month of November. Our future efforts depend upon your support.
Please make a generous donation at this time, if you are able. Thank you for your support.

As OCA has written, it’s likely that as many as 40-100 million Americans (many who exhibited no symptoms at all) have already contracted COVID-19 and recovered. Although a small proportion of these people have become re-infected, almost none of them have exhibited symptoms and become seriously ill. Thus there is a strong pushback against mandatory vaccines for those with natural immunity, which numerous studies have shown appear to be as effective, or even more more effective than the emergency vaccines themselves, which confer narrow artificial immunity and wear off after several months, with reports of adverse reactions and deaths mounting across the world.
Guest columnist TB, a long-time food and GMO activist, who has been vaccinated herself, looks at the published evidence pointing toward natural immunity in this heavily footnoted article. Although my perspective on the safety of the experimental vaccines, as expressed in my book, co-authored with Dr. Mercola, The Truth About COVID-19, is different from TB’s, OCA believes that her article is important for people to read, especially for those who have already been vaccinated and those who have acquired natural immunity.
