NGOs in the modern definition, spring from the United Nations and act as certified consultants for the United Nations; no government representatives are allowed as members. However, NGOs are hardly independent as most of them are funded by governments. In other words, our tax dollars are paying for our own demise through the UN Agenda 21 programs.
This is how the scam works:
Instead of taking serious action to combat GMOs, the IUCN allocates their resources toward promoting biodiversity, (the theft of private property by way of the Endangered Species Act) and global warming, which has been thoroughly discredited.
The WWF(World Wildlife Federation) keeps a low profile on their website about GMOs, but the WWF does fully endorse GMOs.
Greenpeace is a UN accredited NGO, and like all UN affiliated NGOs Greenpeace is dedicated to the policies of the UN's Agenda 21 Sustainable Development. In order to appear that they are working in the publics interest, they oppose GMOs and have taken some small actions, like publicizing the dangers of GMOs and pressuring the Trader Joe's food chain stores into refusing GMO food for their private label. However, their opposition to GMOs, according to Michael Shaw of THE NON-PROFIT SCAM
Non-Profit organizations and foundations are anything but not-for-profit! A more accurate definition is that they are tax exempt. What is it they don't want you to know? Many, if not most are funded by governments, NGOs and philanthropic foundations. Tax exempt non-profit 501(c)3 organizations and foundations owe it to the American taxpayer to clearly and publicly disclose who their donors are because they benefit from a tax free status, but it is rare to find this information on their websites or on the Internet.
Michael Shaw pointed out that tax exempt organizations are increasing exponentially in order to capitalize on government funding; however, this makes tax exempt organizations beholden to the government. Public-Private Partnerships, or the coupling between government and private enterprise, are the foundation of fascism. Nonprofits often fit the political/economic definition of Public-Private Partnership.
Philanthropic tax exempt foundations have been working toward the destruction of America for many decades. In the 1950's a Congressional investigation into the Rockefeller, Ford and Carnegie Foundations was conducted with scandalous results, so the information was suppressed. However, G. Edward Griffin was able to obtain an interview with Senator Norman Dodd, one of the lead investigators, on video and in a written transcript
Some non-profit tax exempt 501(c)3 organizations have been known to engage in controlled opposition. For example, the Center for Food Safety (CFS) represented farmers in opposition to Monsanto in the Supreme Court GMO alfalfa case and in many other anti-GMO cases. While we have no way of knowing whether Andrew Kimbrell, the Executive Director of CFS and his brother George (of counsel) performed solid work in opposing Monsanto or whether they sandbagged the endeavor, there are reports that CFS and its parent company have taken in $1.75 million dollars from the John Merck Fund, which has ties to the Rockefeller Family Fund. Andrew Kimbrell of CFS filed a petition with the EPA to ban colloidal silver which is a natural antibiotic agent with many benefits that competes directly with Merck's dubious pharmaceutical drugs. This organization has the appearance of working in the public's interest, but in a separate action, it has operated in opposition to public benefit.
Further, Andrew Kimbrell reported a success in the Supreme Court GMO alfalfa ruling. He said that GMO alfalfa is still illegal to plant. While this is true today, the USDA has only to complete its Environmental Impact Study in order to approve the seeds.
