Monsanto at it again…?

15 08 2013
As a beekeeper, I find this unbelievable……..
The Illinois Ag Dept. illegally seized privately owned bees from renowned naturalist, Terrence Ingram, without providing him with a search warrant and before the court hearing on the matter, reports Prairie Advocate News.

Behind the obvious violations of his Constitutional rights is Monsanto. Ingram was researching Roundup’s effects on bees, which he’s raised for 58 years. “They ruined 15 years of my research,” he told Prairie Advocate, by stealing most of his stock.

A certified letter from the Ag Dept.’s Apiary Inspection Supervisor, Steven D. Chard, stated:

“During a routine inspection of your honeybee colonies by … Inspectors Susan Kivikko and Eleanor Balson on October 23, 2011, the bacterial disease ‘American Foulbrood’ was detected in a number of colonies located behind your house…. Presence of the disease in some of your colonies was confirmed via test results from the USDA Bee Research Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland that analyzed samples collected from your apiary….”

Ingram can prove his bees did not have foulbrood, and planned to do so at a hearing set in April, but the state seized his bees at the end of March. They have not returned them and no one at the Ag Dept. seems to know where his bees are.

that the new regime all support mike,

pagan and mythology based, more and more groups now police and their agents, will be permitted to enter our properties and lives without warrant, means you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent9firly impossible to do, shades of the inquisition times on the return trail.

be watchful of forums in the works which will empower green approved and dressed people to enter your home and disappear you if they don’t like what you eat or read etc.,.

now back to your doomsay stuff

lets stand united mike, we the people can turn this around without suffering.

You mean myth like religion? The source of so much hatred?

An Irishman was once stopped by some rogue police and asked whether he was Catholic or Protestant. The man replied he was atheist, so they asked, yes but are you a Catholic atheist or a Protestant atheist……. and of course we have the Sunni and Shiite Muslims at each others’ throats, and the Buddhists and Muslims in Burma, and and and……

This is one thing that collapse will solve.

they don’t need search warrants nowadays don, they just need someone pointing the uncorroborated dob I finger or their own mere reasons, it is all downhill after that, worse to come hark back to eh history of ww2 in Germany all about to be repeated.

Len,
You reply to my post with something that is completely irevelant to what I said.

I will rephrase it simply so that you may be able to understand.

After the collapse, organizations like Monsanto and the USDA will cease to exist.

Don’t really get this, Roundup (glyphosate) is a herbicide, not a pesticide.

oh! like lemmiwinks how does Monsanto’s weedicide affect any insect?

please explain it may very well do so?

It works like this…… they spray the plants, the bees land on the plants, ingest poison, take it back to the hive, poisons the honey, the bees eat the honey, and they die.

That wasn’t hard now was it…..???

so what you are saying is they spray the plants when the plants are in flower? sounds odd

No it doesn’t. They’re spraying flowering GMOs to kill the weeds growing around the GMO plants. Then the bees visit the resistant GMOs….

Ah, OK (apparently unlike Len) I am familiar with “Roundup Ready” crops. BTW, the growth in glyphosate resistant weeds has increased exponentially since the introduction of such crops. To be expected really since you are selecting for resistance.

Sensibile practices sacrificed on the altar of money/growth yet again. 😦
