Illinois Illegally Seizes Bees Resistant to Monsanto's Roundup; Kills Remaining Queens
southmilwaukeenow.com ^ | May 27, 2013 | Kristan Harris

Posted on 05/28/2013 7:52:57 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

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 hisstock.

*pssst* maybe you should tell them you do have three heads, just like me.

In the meantime, wonder what justification the Democratic Socialist Worker’s paradise of Illinois has for this action?

Unbelivable. No, unfortunately, any tyranny is perhaps believable now. But unbearable, unconscionable. This is USSR-level thuggery (thinking of the forcible suppression of scientists who supported Mendelian genetics and opposed Trofim Lysenko.)

Interesting. By what authority did they have to confiscate and kill the queen bees?

(Apparently Russia and Putin agree you about Monsanto)

My strongest inclination is that Monsanto has been working on the same thing and seeks to patent a “roundup read” bee.

They’re using their clout($) to influence government entities to destroy their competition.

MOST people have no idea the importance of honey bees. All they know is that they "sting" and need to be wiped out, just like most "snakes". If it is not in the rap song track, it don't happen.

If the full impact on the food supply due to the lack of bees hits...people will notice, but they still will not have a clue as to the reason.

I don’t understand how the corrupt Illinois government officials, and their crony capitalist buddies whose bid they are doing, can get away with this. Can’t they be sued?

I don’t see why there’s a single Illinois resident who, if they are in a position to do so, is not planning to flee the state.

Only the big-government/big-corporate criminal complex is allowed to own anything.

Think of the chaos if ordinary citizens were allowed to own things, and how much money the big-government/big-corporate criminal complex would lose!

Interesting note: in the linked article comments there seems to be a planted comment.
Anyone in the class want to point out the planted comment?

I’d say that you are right in that guess.

There is something more going on here than bees.
I suspect this is another EU shakedown of an American company because the EU companies can’t compete.

Microsoft
Intel
Apple

All these companies have been targeted by the EU.
Anti-trust laws in the EU are different than the USA.
All they need to do is “prove” an EU company is being impacted.

The claimed the bees were infected with ‘American Foulbrood’. Of course, now that they’ve conveniently destroyed the evidence, folks will just have to take their word for it,

The story is from May 2012, if it happened at all. Supposedly a positive test for some bee disease. Story is spread around now as part of an anti-Monsanto campaign.

Didn’t George Soros buy a lot of Monsanto stock? Didn’t he also buy a lot of stock in grain storage corporations? Doesn’t he make his money by scaring people? Why, it’s almost like old George is working up another scam.

I understand the intimation here but this is an awful article to show Monsanto was in any way involved in seizing the property.
Aside from the author surmising they were behind it the only mention we get is, “The bees could have been destroyed, or they could have been turned over to Monsanto to ascertain why some of his bees are resistant to Roundup. Without the bees as evidence, Ingram simply cannot defend against the phony charges of foulbrood.”
The article seems to point at the state as being at fault.

At the end of the video interview, Mr. Ingram states that he has raised all of his bees with out chemicals, and has taught his beginning beekeepers the same. He then goes on to state that “she”, (the AgDept. rep) goes ballistic when someone says that they want to raise bees without chemicals. She says it cannot be done...

Sounds like Monsanto is in the IllinoisAg Dept.’s pocket, which is NO surprise since the Fed level Ag Dept. head, (Vilsack) is viewed by many as a Monsanto man : / http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_15573.cfm

Some college-age kid with a clipboard came to our house the other day asking my wife and me to sin a petition against Monsanto. They are the next frozen/personalized target of the left, and the holes in this article make me think that it is part of the campaign.

“November 30, 2010

George Soros Increased Hedge Fund Investment of Monsanto Last Year Before Food Safety Act

There are some interesting things to note about the Food Safety Act, which many label the Monsanto Act. The bill will be voted on in the Senate today, and it has already passed in the House of Representatives.

Once again, we see George Soros’ fingerprints are all over this bill through investments. In 2009, the Soros hedge fund group increased investments in Monsanto by 244%. As well, Soros is also 2nd largest holder in Monsanto Corporation, who’s former CEO was positioned nicely in a powerful position in the FDA.

Soros stands to profit from the continued altercation of human food through GMO science, and the SB510, the Food Safety Act will also drive up to costs of food by removing more competition and giving the corporate agri bussiness the ultimate upper hand over small family farmers.”

Anyone ever drive down an interstate and see a planted field in the middle of the highway with a sign that says something like “Don’t Mow” “Seed test 19024”?

I wonder if those little cuts of land were negotiated by Monsanto to infect Farmers crops with their franken-seeds and thereby allowing Monsanto so sue and win(unbelievably) claiming the farmer is using Monsanto seed, when the farmer could care less about Monsanto and has been “seeding” for decades.

Just saw those in the past and never thought anything of them.
