Remember that post Marty Crapper made some time ago about honey bees going extinct? Well, it turns out that perhaps the reasons why they are going extinct may have lied right in front of our faces the whole time. It was Monsanto‘s plan all along and we didn’t even notice! And I’m not just randomly pointing fingers (yes I am), I have real evidence backing my claim (sort of).
However, whether or not Monsanto is doing it isn’t even the real question here, what you should ask yourselves is: Why would Monsanto want to exterminate honey bees? Why do they need them dead so desperately when it’s honeybees that mostly pollinate the crops! It’s because of honeybees that we’re able to plant things! Hit the break to find out and read more about how life on Earth from now on is just going to suck balls.
So what exactly kills the bees? Let’s start with that:
The bacterial disease, Bacill Thuringiensis, was previously sprayed onto plants before its direct incorporation into the produce by Monsanto. Genetically engineered plants containing Bt were approved for use with the understanding that there would be no harm to non-target insects. (There was no mention of us humans, of course.) So Bt was studied for its effect upon bees, but only a direct correlation was studied. For instance, if bees are exposed to Bt in a controlled setting, and die within the next few days, then a direct correlation would be made. However, this is not how the toxin actually works, so the usual FDA science was used to get the ‘right’ ‘scientific’ results that the manufacturer had wanted all along. The so-called ‘sub-lethal effects’ were not investigated, and you can be certain that they never will be .
This historical pattern is no longer being seen for recent cases of Colony Collapse Disorder. Bees are simply disappearing without a trace. Scientists are having trouble explaining the cause of this disappearance, and beekeepers are usually horrified when their hives suddenly become empty . In modern cases of Colony Collapse Disorder, the adult bees disappear, leaving behind only young bees to complete the tasks of adults. The queen always remains.
The bees disappear because they cannot find their way back to the hives. This explains the lack of dead bees in front of the hives, the loss of the adult bees, and the remaining queen. Bacterial toxin Bacill Thuringiensis is known to provoke an immune response in humans and bees [7,8,2]. An immune response in a bee prevents proper memory formation, and causes confusion [9,10]. One of the symptoms of Colony Collapse Disorder is bees’ decreased navigational ability . During the summer, the bees have enough available pollen (protein) to be able to tolerate a weakened immune system. However, in the winter months, when pollen is scarce, and the bees have to travel further, then the decreased ability of bees to navigate becomes fatal . Thus, many beekeepers find their colonies dead when they check in the spring.

The Bees Are Dying and How Monsanto Will Be Responsible for the Upcoming Famine
The article goes on to explain very thoroughly the mechanism by which the poor bees are disappearing and the possible harmful effects of Bacill Thuringiensis on humans! That’s right, it does affect us. What? You thought that eating/drinking pesticides that kill insects wouldn’t make you sick ’cause you’re bigger? Think about it this way: An insect gets sick and dies because it took an insect-sized bite out of the GMO/Pesticide infested plant and you, as a human, take human-sized bites out of it. Wouldn’t that be equivalent to a human dose? Sure, you perhaps won’t feel the effects right away but then again, insects are smaller, weaker and live shorter lives. It’s only matter of time until the effects of these chemicals get to you! Just ask the FDA if they have any data about long-term effects on humans of this crap, see what they tell you.
So what does Monsanto do when they realize that some bees are resistant to their GMO crap? They freaking seize them and kill the queens to get rid of the evidence!!!
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.
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. Worse, all his queens died after Kivikko and Balson “inspected” his property, outside of his presence and without a warrant. Of note, Illinois beekeepers are going underground after Ingram’s experience and refuse to register their hives, in case the state tries to steal their private property on phony claims.

So everything points to the fact that Monsanto wants the bees gone. However, wouldn’t the extinction of honey bees, like I said, affect Monsanto itself even more than it would affect us because of the whole crop pollination thing? What if they found a way of skipping the whole pollination part? And since they are in the GMO business, they could just make it happen and rule the market with their very own trademark self-pollinating GMO crops. That would make them a monopoly, right? And speaking of monopolies, Monsanto is already becoming one. How did that happen, you might ask? Well, gather around my Paranoid children (not too close, please) I will tell you the story about how Monsanto is becoming a monopoly: Once upon a time, Monsanto sucks. The end.
Now here’s the long version, in case my explanation didn’t work for you.
Farmers had to sign a contract agreeing to annually purchase Monsanto’s seed. The modified seed was designed as a terminator, which means it no longer produced live seed for replanting the following year. Also, Monsanto patented its seed, thus setting up neighboring farms for litigation over payment to Monsanto when non-modified crops cross pollinated and thus became contaminated. Such crops legally belonged to Monsanto and farmers found to have them were forced to pay the company accordingly.
Problems multiplied. There were crop failures. Patented Monsanto cotton seed produced a failed harvest in India for two consecutive years. Over 100,000 Indian farmers, deep in debt after paying the high cost of the Monsanto seed committed suicide because they were unable to pay off heavy bank loans. It seems the modified cotton seed was not resistant to certain insect infestations unique to India and the plants required more water than conventional cotton. India experienced unusually dry growing seasons both years.
There has been a growing question of the effects of the chemicals included in the seeds to the health of the humans and animals that consume this food.
Hungarian bio-chemist Dr. Arpad Pusztai, who studied this problem in about 2004, wrote that it has been found that once in the body, altered DNA can be picked up by gut bacteria, can itself be modified, leading to a spread of human resistance to antibiotics. Pusztai also expressed concern for the development of unknown toxic/allergens.
Dr. David Schubert, a cell biologist and medical researcher at Salk Institute in California, and William Freese, research analyst with Friends of the Earth, published a 25-page paper, “Safety Testing and Regulation of Genetically Engineered Foods” in which they reveal serious flaws in how GM crops are tested. Consequently the paper raises serious questions about the safety of these altered foods.
A recent writer for The Daily Kos, identified only as Scaredhuman, addressed the way Monsanto and other biotech companies are monopolizing seeds, “actually privatizing the DNA of life. They sell the GE seeds at many times the price of normal seeds.
“They are removing actively and aggressively and thoroughly removing access to normal “open pollinated” seeds, the ones we have known since the beginning of time, that farmers have collected and saved and shared among each other.
Having bought up the normal seed companies, having locked farmers worldwide into patent contracts that remove their right to collect seeds anymore, having set loose a biotechnology that contaminates normal seeds of farmers who do not buy into the patented seeds, having made plain it will sue if even a volunteer plant comes up, Monsanto is now working to eliminate the last man standing between humans and corporate privatized seeds – the seed cleaner.

Monsanto’s Evil Plot To Control World Seeds
Now, where does the total extinction of the honey bees fit into all of this? I’m glad you ask, random Paranoiac! You see, the absence of the honey bees opens a whole new niche for Monsanto; The self-pollinating GMO’s, which leaves honey bees 100% out of the equation!
In related news, Monsanto has successfully built bee DNA into insect-pollinated crops through genetic engineering. Though the technology is currently being trialed on a limited 3,000 acre planting of modified RoundUp Ready Soybeans called “SoyBee’ns”, scientists are pleased with the success.^
According to Stuard Mansonite, Monsanto Chief Biotech Engineer and Product Developer for the SoyBee’n project, about 94% of the “genetically enhanced” soy plants set flower within a 2-hour window. Shortly after flowering, the blossoms detatch from the SoyBee’n plant and take flight. When they encounter another blossom, they exchange pollen.
This exchange may happen 12-20 times before the blossom returns to its mother SoyBee’n plant to grow into a traditional-looking soybean pod. Mansonite described the mid-air pollination dance of the blossoms as “breathtaking.”
Bean set within the SoyBee’n pods is sporadic and in 20% of cases results in fuzzy, yellow and black striped beans, but Mansonite is confident that traditional breeding techniques will be able to “work the kinks out” of the SoyBee’n product before it goes to the commercial seed market, where it is expected to sell for 9 times to price of conventional soy seed.
That’s right, Folks, you read that right 9 TIMES THE PRICE OF CONVENTIONAL SOY SEED! And if you, as a farmer think; “I ain’t buying that shit!” you won’t have much choice after honey bees go completely extinct!
Monsanto expects fast-track government approval of Soy Bee’n seed. “We expect farmers to have SoyBee’n in the ground for spring planting,” said Media Relations Representative Laura Carthillman.
Soy is the first such crop to have bee DNA embedded into it; but SoyBee’n engineers are already hard at work introducing this technology to other insect-pollinated crops, such as zucchini, apples, broccoli, peppers, watermelon, cashews and more.

Monsanto Announces New SoyBee’n Self-Pollinating Soy Bean!
I might add, that this article is actually quite old actually. It’s from 2011. So if it’s true, the thing is not only already in development but also soon to hit the market. Just in time for the extinction of the honey bees. Lucky us.
If you need me, I will be learning beekeeping. ‘Cause I actually like honey bees.
