Whistleblower: MONSANTO wants to kill the bees to make way for its “super bee”

And for those who said crops aren’t pollinated by bees? You’re wrong. Alfalfa is http://blog.targethealth.com/?p=58

And if you think Monsanto isn’t dominating our government? Read some cables released by wikileaks all about our officials asking for talking points from them, our ambassadords urging trade wars on their behalf:

Are they evil enough to do this? Read up about Monsanto:

There was quite a stir amongst beekeepers and anti-gmo activists this past October when chemical and seed giant Monsanto purchased Beeologics , a small company best known for its  “groundbreaking research” vis a vis the application of RNAi technology on honeybees, a mechanism meant to block gene expression.

This was Monsanto’s first acquisition of a pest control biotech company. Yet surprisingly the terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Since its inception in 2007, Beeologics has been developing Remebee,® an anti-viral treatment for use in honeybees affected with Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus (IAPV), a bee-specific virus, which originated from Australia and found and named in Israel in 2002.

Which brings us back to Monsanto, arguably the most detested chemical company on the face of the planet.

Why were they drawn to Beeologics? Was it because the competition (Syngenta and Bayer Crop Science) had also expressed interest? Or was it because they’d identified some low-hanging fruit to add to their portfolio of proprietary life forms? Perhaps Monsanto, which boasts a revenue of more than $10.5 billion per year, plans on buying anything and everything to do with gene manipulation?

Considering that the honey bee has been sequenced, how long before we bear witness to a genetically modified bee? I’ve been saying this since 2008 for the record!

… Introducing pesticide-resistant SUPER BEE Patent # 2457842149…

I mean, if seeds are any indication, Apis Melifera may also soon belong to Monsanto. Kill the bees with GM and pesticides, offer a band aid solution by creating a bee that is resistant to all the crap peddled on the market and then persuade/force beekeepers to buy Monsanto bees or else. It’s wicked genius.

But I am sure Monsanto and many others would call all of this paranoid phooey.

Take one well known scientist/beekeeper’s take on the subject.

“Honeybees aren’t an organism that anyone, who understands anything about their molecular biology, would advise as a subject for genetic modification,” he recently told colleagues on the online Bee List.  “Do you really think that Monsanto envisions that there would be any substantive return on investment on a patented bee? It would need to be propagated by instrumental insemination, so there would be a very limited market. This discussion is beginning to sound like the Twilight Zone.”

  1. I have always been leary of any chemical company or enterprise that tampers with the basic builiding blocks of life under the guise of improving our every day lives. Sometimes, it’s criminal what they do to our bodies, the life we share with other creatures on this earth and the plants that protect and feed us. Pharmaceutical companies find ways to duplicate what nature has given us for free and to bilk us of Billions of dollars annually. They are number 1 on my hit list.

    Meanwhile, I find it much to my chagrin and dismay to realize that the Aussies “Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus (IAPV), a bee-specific virus, which originated from Australia” are exporting this sort of crap. 401 can’t you do something about this?

  2. Monsanto will sue you if it’s bee’s decide to pollinate your non GM crops as well probably.

  3. Reblogged this on Johnsono ne'Blog'as and commented:

    • “It’s often said that we have bees to thank for one out of every three bites we take of food. In addition to producing honey, honeybees literally criss-cross the United States, pollinating almonds, oranges, melons, blueberries, pumpkins, apples, and more. And while carrots are a biennial root crop that are harvested long before they flower, all carrots are planted from seed, and honeybees pollinate the carrot flowers that produce the seeds. Other species of bees, both social and solitary bees, pollinate other crops. And the populations of all these species of bees are in decline.”

  8. it should be noted that NO SUCH PATENT exists http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-adv.htm&r=0&f=S&l=50&d=PALL&Query=2457842149

  9. i got a buddy thats border line paranoid , sorry if you read it man , but he text me bout checkn this out . ok ! i did . i don’t like the idea or even the talk of the idea . i’m a naturalist . i don’t think humans should intervene in the natural process of nature unless something we have done directly effects it . (i.e. oil spills , water contamination , deforrestation ) with that said . just what the fuck am i pose to do ??? im lucky to pull $35K a year versus something at $10 Billion a year . I have my 2nd amendmant and couple boxes of bullets , and if need be i can get more . so instead of just of sounding like a bunch of state workers bitchn and gossiping about this does anybody have a real idea on how to act on such a situation ?

    • great question because its something all of us have to face..we are controlled to an extent..and walls keep closing in..you just gotta do what you can..ignore the shit foods..drink rain water..grow vegetables and fruit..etc

  11. Patent # 2457842149 does not exist. This story is pure B.S.!!!!

    • No, the patent part of the story cannot be verified. The rest of the posting is accurate.
