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 Roundups effects on bees, which hes raised for 58 years. They ruined 15 years of my research, he told Prairie Advocate, by stealing most of hisstock.

I mentioned this on other threads and people “looked” at me like I had three heads.
Monsanto: “No Food Grown, That We Don’t Own”.
*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.
oops, roundup readY
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 believed you but thanks for the link. This is like a sifi movie, where the people that want to save the natural food source that God made have to go underground and sell in the black market. (no, feds, that is not yet a racist expression)
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.
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.
This is more complicated than the hacked story suggests. Follow the link someone posted down in the comments section.
Here is the full article including a Youtube account by the owner of the bees.
MONSANTO = one of th3e most evil corporation. I don’t see how Illinois can do this
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.
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.
Plenty of zombies in Chicago whose lives are not being interfered with by the government because they are willingly living as its thralls.

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,
Tyranny moving from drip...drip...drip...to a steady stream, every day something new.
Soon the Dam will break, and the Constitution will be completely washed away...not much time left folks.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
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.
Dear Lord, give us strength.
He could prove they didn’t, but that hardly “matters” now.
The bees are destroyed, and the goose stepping officials carry on likenothing happened.
That the question I asked when they sent swat teams out to confiscate the farmer’s raw milk
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.
They will probably end up creating some new killer bee that attacks humans, perhaps targeting conservatives. (only half kidding)
Bee researcher’s bees taken by Illinois Ag.. Says Monsandto behind this as researcher studying effect of Roundup and had some bees made resistant to it.
The more people realize that the left are not our political opponents, but want us exterminated,
It allows us to deal with them within the realm of reality.
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.
I thought it was MONSANTO: FRANKEN-FOOD!
From "Omen II:" "Gentlemen, our business is famine."
Whoooooaaaaa, nelly!!!! Round Up is a herbicide(weed and grass killer), not an insecticide.
Something is fishy with this article.
Makes sense yes? Any herbicide will have to be tested against creatures in that environment?
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.

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.
This Nation is WAY UP that proverbial creek without a paddle. It is just mind-numbing to just read about these events; however, the lack of response on the part of The People is just plain sickening.
We’ve started growing our own food,
but I wonder how long before they start taking actions
against individuals who stray outside their “nets”.
The information in your link does not match conventional information available:
Oh, I get that.
After one year, I would expect more than the vague accusations in the story.
Amazing. And yet there are FReepers who will defend Monsanto.
Yup. Our freedoms are being determinedly undermined from every possible direction.
Dear Lord, give us strength.
