Rep. Tom Price, selected by Donald Trump for HHS Secretary, voted for the DARK Act to keep Americans in the dark about GMOs

Tom Price

(NaturalNews) This morning, President elect Donald Trump announced his pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services: Rep. Tom Price, a Republican from Georgia.

Before serving in Congress, Price was an orthopedic surgeon, and he's well known for being a strong, vocal critic of the Obamacare fiasco (Affordable Care Act).

"He is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring affordable and accessible healthcare to every American," announced Donald Trump.

Sadly, Tom Price is also among the many Republicans who voted for the so-called "DARK Act," a bill that outlawed state-level mandatory GMO labeling laws like the one passed in Vermont. Mike Pompeo, a Republican from Kansas, also voted for the DARK Act, and he has already been appointed by Donald Trump to head the CIA.

A vote in favor of the DARK Act means a vote against consumer transparency about what they're buying and eating in their food. It's a red flag against both Tom Price and Mike Pompeo, as it indicates they have both functioned as part of the "Monsanto establishment" that has long sought to keep people in the dark while feeding them unlabeled GMOs. The question on everyone's mind is: Will these two individuals now represent the People, or are they still bought off by Monsanto?

ANALYSIS: Let's judge these people on what they do after Inauguration Day

What's my take on this? We all know that Monsanto has infiltrated every establishment and political party in America. It's almost impossible to find anyone in a position of regulatory or legislative authority who hasn't already been influenced, threatened or bought out by the deeply corrupt biotech industry. The overreach of corporatism in America is systemic and insidious.

But there is a strong anti-establishment movement gaining steam in America and around the world. The election of Donald Trump is proof that the establishment as it has long been known is being rejected by voters. Under the leadership of Trump, many legislators, officials and cabinet members may now realize they have permission to challenge the status quo in their own realms of government authority. If that happens, we might see people like Price and Pompeo exhibit a new level of responsibility in rejecting the corruption of the old system from which they emerged.

Or, on the flipside, we might see the opposite happen and watch in horror as the establishment swallows Donald Trump like a prehistoric tar pit, delivering nothing but the same old corruption and corporate collusion that typified the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Only time will tell, but I assure Natural News readers that we are watching carefully, and we will hold everyone in the Trump administration accountable for their actions. If they don't reject the corrupt status quo and start representing the interests of real Americans, they're going to be called out and rejected at the next election opportunity.

The real test is what unfolds after January 20

The same goes for Trump. Nobody gets a free pass. Everyone is held accountable. But let's not pre-judge them at this point. Trump hasn't even been sworn in as President yet. The real test will be what unfolds after January 20, 2017. Only then will we know for sure what we've voted into power in Washington.

To keep it all in perspective, in my view there's almost nothing the Trump administration can do that would be worse than a President Clinton. But we didn't elect him to be the lesser of two evils... we elected him to Make America Great Again. And that's what we demand of his administration.

Tom Price can start by repealing Obamacare. That's incredibly important for all small businesses across America. From there, we're going to keep pushing Tom Price and Donald Trump to achieve important reforms for health care across America, including legalizing natural medicine, ending the Big Pharma market monopolies and labeling all GMOs.

How much we get of that is anyone's guess. My honest opinion is that nothing big changes until the current system collapses. In my assessment, Donald Trump will be the last President of a 50-state United States of America. The financial collapse that's coming in 2017 will change everything, rendering many current government policies on health care and GMOs completely irrelevant.

Stay tuned to Natural News to see what happens... (and thank God we didn't end up with Hillary Clinton in the White House, as she was the "Bride of Frankenfood" who worked very closely with Monsanto and could be bought off with corporate money).

More news on Tom Price

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.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. 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. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. 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.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
