DNC rigging of support for Hillary Clinton is identical to the way universities collude with corporations like Monsanto

Corporate funding

(NaturalNews) Tens of millions of American voters just learned during the current presidential election cycle that the Democratic National Committee's rules for nominating the party's White House candidate aren't fair. And what's more, they learned that the party clearly favored one competitor – Hillary Clinton – over another, Sen. Bernie Sanders.

The way that Democrats ensured a Clinton victory was a lot like the way Monsanto ensures that the health and safety of its genetically modified seeds and crops are never seriously challenged or questioned in the scientific realm. I'll explain.

Take the case of Clinton winning her party's nomination. From the outset, the Sanders campaign was doomed. The Democratic Party, like the Republican Party, holds a series of nominating primaries and caucuses ostensibly to select their respective presidential candidates.

It's important to note that the difference between primaries and caucuses is that in the former, voters statewide cast ballots to elect their preferred candidate; the latter is a system of local gatherings where voters decide which candidate to support and select delegates for nominating conventions.

Republicans select delegates; Democrats select delegates and so-called "superdelegates." And these superdelegates are free to support any candidate they choose, irrespective of the wishes of voters in their districts.

'A solid return on investment'

Starting out, Clinton had around 600 pledged superdelegates to Sanders' 40-something. So, even though Sanders began closing in on Clinton in the regular delegate count as the primary/caucus season moved forward, he had a formidable mountain of superdelegates to overcome.

Plus, we now find out, thanks to hacked – then leaked – emails, that the DNC conspired to ensure a Clinton victory over Sanders from the outset, just as the Sanders campaign charged in May.

So, while the DNC's mouthpieces claimed the party was not favoring one candidate over another, that clearly wasn't the case.

Monsanto operates in much the same way. While claiming that its disease-causing GMOs are safe, it stacks the deck by hiring pseudo-scientists and turning them into paid hacks and shills for the company, to give it an air of legitimacy.

One such hack was exposed by NaturalNews and others last fall. His name is Kevin Folta, a University of Florida professor who promised the agri-business giant "a solid return on investment" just a few days before receiving $25,000 in Monsanto money.

As Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and author of the top-selling book Food Forensics wrote in September, despite the fact that Folta emphatically stated he never took any money from Monsanto, unearthed correspondence between the two says otherwise. This from a guy who also regularly blogged in defense of GMOs.

'Science's worst enemy'

A letter from Monsanto, dated August 8, 2014, confirms that Kevin Folta received an "unrestricted grant" in the amount of $25,000 – money which "may be used at your discretion ... in support of outreach projects." That means he could spend the money on anything he wanted – travel, food, hotels, etc.

Folta confirmed the grant in an email response to a Carolyn Daly from Monsanto, asking if Folta was going to send the company an invoice, or if Monsanto should "do a check request for" his payment.

Folta certainly isn't the only paid hack for Monsanto. In fact, as Adams pointed out in a column last week, the scientific community is rife with fraud, chicanery and untrustworthiness – filled with propagandists pushing corporate or globalist agendas of control (like "climate change"), all in an effort to enact a certain political agenda.

It's the new "reefer madness:"

So-called "climate change" -- previously known as "global warming" but renamed after the data revealed no warming trend at all -- is entirely rooted in false mythologies, official narratives and creative storytelling. That's precisely why democrats had to hire James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sigourney Weaver to present a climate change scary in a new short film.

Indeed, corporate funding has been called 'science's worst enemy.'
