Barack Obama

(NaturalNews) While America's economy is suffering staggering losses in jobs and debt, the Obama administration is creating jobs for Chinese workers by selling hemp scarves on its website -- even while industrialized hemp remains illegal for U.S. farmers to grow!

The "Monique Pean" scarf runs $95 on BarackObama.com (http://store.barackobama.com/monique-pean.ht...), and is described as:

Designed by Monique Pean. Circle scarf made of 45% certified organic cotton / 55% hemp, measures 42'' L X 21'' W. Made in the USA.

Here's a screen shot of the item, in case they try to remove it from their store:

It may be "made in the USA," but the hemp it uses is imported from nations like China because under the Obama administration, industrial hemp remains illegal to grow in the USA.

The hemp hypocrisy

Thanks to Obama, anyone who tries to grow hemp will be raided at gunpoint by U.S. federal agents, prosecuted for felony crimes and thrown in prison.

So why is it okay for Barack Obama to buy industrial hemp grown in China, but keep industrial hemp criminalized in America?

Robert Scott Bell asked this question on the August 2, 2012 broadcast of the Robert Scott Bell Show. Download the MP3 here:

The hemp segment is right at the beginning of the show. Also covered on the show:
Barack Sells Hemp From China for Money, Denying American Farmers Right to Grow Cannabis, Jon Rappoport, DARPA Seal Flu Shots, Medical Martial Law, Dunderheaded Dentists on Fluoride, Cameroon Cess Pools Really Vaccine Deficiencies, School Shot Exemptions, Menstrual Marketing, Digital Pills, Biological Freedom, Smoking Telephone Poles and more on The Robert Scott Bell Show.

How to really create more jobs in America: LEGALIZE HEMP

If Obama really wanted to create jobs and lift America's economy, he could simply issue an executive order declaring all industrial hemp to be legal for growing and selling in America.

I'm not saying I agree with the abuse of power of the President invoking executive orders (and bypassing Congress), but if Obama is going to use executive orders, he could use them to restore freedom by legalize farming and helping create industrial hemp jobs in America.

But Obama refuses to do this. While more and more farmers declare bankruptcy and the economic backbone of America is shattered, he buys hemp from China instead of allowing American farmers to grow it right at home!

While Obama leaves U.S. farmers to be crushed under agricultural bankruptcy, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is actually trying to do something to restore economic abundance to America's farmers. He, along with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, is working to legalizing industrial hemp farming. As NaturalNews has reported:

"The only thing standing in the way of taking advantage of this very profitable crop is a lingering misunderstanding about its use," said Wyden, "and the amendment that I have filed on this issue will end a ridiculous regulation once and for all." (https://www.naturalnews.com/036231_Ron_Wyden_...)

Rep. Ron Paul has also sponsored H.R. 1831: The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011. Read the full text of that bill here: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/112/hr...

BlacklistedNews.com has covered both legislative efforts in a summary posted here:

Wanna rebuild America? Hemp is the answer!

"In 1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees need to be cut down. Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees." -- the U.S. Department of Agriculture

Hemp can be used to manufacture all these things (and more):

• Shoes
• Clothing
• Paper
• Car parts (such as bumpers)
• Houses
• Bicycle frames
• Cosmetics
• Backpacks
• Flags
• Rope
• Food packaging
• Omega-3 oil supplements
• Protein supplements
• Fuel for cars
• Boats
• Lamps and decorations
• Skate boards

If industrial hemp were legalized, all these things could be made in America!

So why is Barack Obama's store making money from selling hemp scarves using hemp from China and other countries? Apparently because he favors China's economy over the U.S. economy!

Hey, Obama... Maybe instead of crushing America's economy, stripping away our liberties and freedoms, and seizing control over U.S. farms (https://www.naturalnews.com/035301_Obama_exec...), you should stop and think about actually helping America's farmers for real hope and change: Legalizing industrial hemp. It's time to end the prohibition against hemp farming in America.

Spread the word. Share this story. Government needs to get out of the way and stop criminalizing a safe, profitable and sustainable crop that could lead America's farmers into a whole new era of economic abundance.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
