THE GMO SCRAPBOOK: NOT TO WORRY! WE HAVE ROBOBEES!
Sometimes I have to marvel at the utter insanity of today's western corporate "scientism" culture. A brief review is necessary. First we had companies like Mon(ster)santo giving us GMO crops and food, and "terminator" seeds genetically modified to work with their own glyphosate pesticides to "increase yields and end worldwide hunger." Of course, these seeds were designed not to reproduce, and besides, even if they did, farmers buying these more expensive seeds had to sign licensing agreements that they could not withhold a certain amount of their harvest for replanting. Then came the massive collapse of the world-wide pollinator population, including butterflies and honeybees. Then came studies indicating that, over the long term, GMO seeds were actually less productive (and also more expensive) than ordinary seeds. Then came studies linking colony collapse disorder in the world bee population to the widespread use of glyphosate pesticides in conjunction with GMOs. But, as all of this was going on, we were assured by the big GMO agribusinesses that their studies showed no harmful or long term effects. Uh huh... it doesn't take a Harvard... oops, sorry, bad example... it doesn't take a graduate of a small law school in Wyoming to figure out that this sort of thing might constitute a conflict of interest. Not to worry, we have those goobernment agencies reassuring us with their studies that none of this was connected. Oh, but wait, most of the people in those goobernment agencies came from the very corporations promoting their studies. Then came those studies in France indicating all sorts of bad things about GMOs and glyphosates, including effects on human health, reproduction, and linkages to cancer. But what do they know? After all, they're French, and ipso facto, somewhat backward.
But not to worry, scientists are close to solving the disappearance of honey bees, as their new shiny robobees are nearing practical use, with larger payloads, the ability to travel and hover longer, and so on, according to this article shared with us by Mr. C.S.:
Robotic Bees Are Now Being Built To Pollinate Crops Instead of Real Bees
And of course, the article zeros in on a little "problem" with all this wondrous technology:
But other scientists have taken different avenues for dealing with the crisis, using modern technology to replace living bees with robotic ones. Researchers at Harvard University introduced the first RoboBees back in 2013. Led by engineering professor Robert Wood, the team created bee-size robots that can lift off the ground and hover midair when connected to a power supply.
The details were reported in the journal Science. Harvard graduate student and mechanical engineer Kevin Ma, who co-authored the report, noted that the team is “on the eve of the next big development” and that the robot “can now carry more weight.”
Prior to this development, it had been impossible to put all the necessary things to make a robot fly into such a minuscule structure while still keeping it lightweight enough to actually stay off the ground, but the Harvard researchers believe that these RoboBees could, within a decade, artificially pollinate a field of crops.
Is it a little to late? It seems that we’ve known for years that pesticides are killing millions of bees, if not billions. More specifically, it’s neonicotinoid pesticides that have been targeted as the culprit, and the province of Ontario, Canada is doing something about it. Ontario’s government recently made the decision that neonicotinoid pesticide use will be reduced by 80 percent no later than 2017.
Neonicotinoid insecticides persist in very high levels in planter exhaust material produced during the planting of crops treated with these insecticides. This runs contrary to industry claims that the chemicals biodegrade and are not a threat, they lied. These pesticide components are found in soil, they are also found in fields where the chemicals are not even sprayed. Bees also actively transfer contaminated pollen from primarily pesticide treated corn crops and bring it back to their hives. Furthermore, bees transfer these pesticides to other plants and crops that are not treated with the chemicals, which goes to show just how persistent these chemicals truly are in the environment.
Neonicotinoids - like glyphosate - are the prominent pesticides in use with GMOs, and of course, the obvious solution presents itself in Canada, where they are still apparently able to think logically and rationally, unlike in the District of Corruption: quit using the danged stuff (and the modified seeds that produce it), and go back to heirloom seeds.
Of course, this would cut into the profits of the big agribusiness corporations that have been behind the mess in the first place, and that, I suspect, is the hidden story here: real "made by God" honeybees are entirely free (more or less); a "robobee" would be subject to patents, ownership, and so on, and a nice nifty way for the big agribusiness corporations to profit from the very environmental disaster that they themselves are responsible for, all the while looking "concerned and involved" with the crisis. Cost of a "natural bee" colony? X dollars. Cost of a robobee colony, invulnerable to the effects of neonicotinoids? XN dollars. We can see the same strategy at work here as was at work in the original promotion of GMOs, for the price of "robobees" will probably be prohibitive to small beekeepers, and hence we'll see the rise of "big corporate beekeeping," and we can imagine Mon(ster)santo and Duponzanto and IG Farbensanto and all their ilk also making these robobees of such a nature as to drive out (or even attack) the "Made By God" bee population. And we can expect the same Mon(ster)santo tactics: if you're a beekeeper and suddenly a Mon(ster)santo spy catches you with one robobee hovering in or around your colonies, they'll haul you to court, sue you for everything you're worth, and take everything you own(including your bees).
Of course, the real solution would be to hold these corporations and their executives personally accountable for damages to the environment. If the recent decisions in Indian courts about copyright are any indication, then one might expect such actions to originate in that country. After all, its farmers have suffered at the hands of the GMO corporations, up to, and including, suicides as farmers were driven out of business by the higher costs of GMO seeds (and the "compassionate" business practices of the corporations selling them). India has likewise been the testbed for "vaccine" research sponsored by certain billionaire busybodies with big foundations and crappy computer products, with similar results.
So watch India...
See you on the... oh, wait, one more thing, to our good friends at Bayer: you might want to re-think that whole buyout of Mon(ster)santo thing. "Rebranding" won't help once the litigation starts...
See you on the flip side...

I wonder if they wanted to kill the bees all along? Where they could selectively pollenate crops of countries that did not fall in line with the RollerBall.Inc society?????? I’ve no real proof of this..
Oliver Cromwell sold hald of Ireland (ok I’m hyperboling.. but it wasnt far off..) into the Slave Trade because of his ‘Catholic’ Faith. (trying really hard not to swear here..) Got rid of the pagans and at the same time, introduced fertility dolls (from the Pagan rituals practised at that time in Ireland) into African Slave culture which were soon turned into Voodoo Dolls.
Responding to Goshawks, Ok, I get that they read the Vedas, but how does a scientist go from..
“A single projectile charged with all the power in the Universe…An incandescent column of smoke and flame as bright as 10,000 suns, rose in all its splendor…it was an unknown weapon, an iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes an entire race”
We need to find the critical mass of uranium-235, which we’ll need to enrichen from Uranium-234 because 235 doesnt really manifest itself very much in natural conditions…Or we can use Plutonium if we have a Nuclear Reactor…
Unless of course there are ‘Other’ Ancient Texts that have been ransacked and pillaged and looted and raped… sorry.. archealogically excavated and we just werent told about those ones…. The ones that went..
“And verily the Lord rose on his Mountain of Power and passed the Uranium through the holy Centrifuge, using his glorious might to make an Isotope. And lo, he was pleased as Plutonium poured from his loins…’
I mean.. How did the idea of an Atomic Bomb come about.. We cant just blame Krammler for everything.. even the Scientists he had locked up must have been pushed into A-Bombs somehow.. As Dr Farrel’s research shows (sorry if I’m not quoting to the right person, who was responsable for the actuel research) the Germans had a big huge Air Liquid Bomb that worked.. They only wanted the A Bomb as a trigger for the Hydrogen Bomb..
whoops.. Wrong reply to wrong thread.. he he.. need more coffee..
Kahlypso, I am going to go with the ‘idea’ first. By that, I mean reading the Vedas gave an idea that such a huge explosion was possible. Think of it as a Jules Verne moment to the early fission researchers. Like the ‘Star Trek’ communicators: Once you see the concept of it, you start working-out ways to make it really happen…
I would see the technical details like U235 enrichment as just connect-the-dots from the first evidence of nucleus-splitting and energy emission to the already-seen weapon. Once people get ‘the bug’, details of how to accomplish it fall into place…
Hi Goshawks.. Sleep is for the Weak.. I was up last night checking into this..
looks like it went.. Marie Curie, discovers that Radium is Radioactive.. in 1898.
Frederick Soddy’s Interpretation of Radium,” a volume published in 1909 basically shows that Scientists at that time were aware about radioactive decay.. It may take thousands of years, but it relases a hell of a lot of energy..
Interesting that you talk about Vernes, it was actually HG Wells who brought them (Atomic Weapons..) into the Public Eye with ‘The world Set Free’.. Makes you wonder if this guy didnt know something else… Alien Invasions.. Nuclear Weapons…
Even Winston Churchil was talking about small bombs capable of destroying whole towns in the 20s.
And has anyone tried RoboHoney yet? Wonder how those glorious machines do with making bee spit.
My first thought was, “What about all the ‘free’ honey produced by natural honeybees? Who is going to replace, or replicate it.” Glad to see many us are thinking along the same course about all the insanity swirling around these days.
“Your comment is awaiting moderation.” I echoed Kahlypso’s comment (at bottom) and also got modded. Somebody REALLY doesn’t like this topic…

I agree with Kahlypso. There is something incredibly Dark about the Bayer & Monsanto tie-up. It has nothing to do with competitiveness. Something is moving in caverns and caves…
And to get rid of all those pesky farmers, next thing these Corporations do will be creating “Robo Farmers”.
To Bee or not to Bee, that is the question. Screwing around with mother nature again. What fools they are.
Seduced by a fabricated sacred money/market magic story, we live in indentured service to money seeking corporate robots that relate to Earth as if it is but a dead rock, rather than a living earth.
Indeed, Robert. Something has to change, way down at the Gaia level (for lack of a better word). This could be such a paradise…
This has less to do with impolinating and more with “defense” applications. A beebot could be a “fly on the wall” in some meeting and even deliver a sting if necessary…
Our elites are at heart fundamentalist the fundamentalism does not mater. Whether it be religious, political, economic, scientific or any other idea. Slavery in all it’s forms is what they believe in they are children who never grow up and they so stupid as against insane they will probably blame someone or something for this disaster they are creating. They talk about responsibility when they themselves are the most irresponsible ones themselves.
Considering the unrelenting effort our elites go to into mentally and physically conditioning us to be part of the collective, and if I can put on my DARPA thinking cap for a moment, I wonder if our planetary rulers intend on one day downloading our consciousness into these robo-bees? I imagine it will only be a matter of time before Amazon/Google/Apple will invite us to upload our “memories” into their cloud storage. And after they have sucked our souls into their data network, they will then have it prisoner to do with it what they will. It would seem that robo-bees would be a perfect repository for extracted human souls because 1) it would free up cloud storage space 2) it would put the souls to work and 3) would allow the souls to fulfill their prime directive to have Earth experiences while reaping and sowing their karma all the while taking up far less space then human creatures. (Many would argue that the life of a bee and the life of a human are far too dissimilar to fulfill our soul’s mission of living out it’s karma but, having lived the life of both a bee and a human, I would report that both lives are surprisingly similar– both expending much of their life’s effort on work and propagation, while constantly interacting with others and nature, taking orders, and, surprisingly, dreaming. Bees have wonderful dreams. I have written many songs over the years built on the memories of my past life bee dreams). Some races would have an easier time assimilating to this new soul environment– the more hive-minded the better. While other races would have great difficulty abiding by the social contract of a beehive and the work demands it entails.
And what would happen to the soul expunged human body, you ask? Perhaps they will serve as the fodder for 3D printers, or maybe meat sticks for some other carnivore on a different planet, or maybe even the new vessel for another soul that has been exiled, awaits in the cloud, and needs a new home in physical form.
How do you dare blaming those nice Froggies (french) after all those backwards Frogs bombed an even more backward people literally way back down the stone age for you. So if I where you run to Homeland Security if you see one of those bacwards joint fight stricker F35 flying with any colors on its wing, it might fall on top of you. Sorry, trying black humor as a coping mechanism!
Would not want to be a bee in this age because it is not only the glyphosate. I read studies that moving those bees around with there hive is also not doing them any good and is very stressfull for them. Every one/thing is a “resource”, what a wonderfull enlightened invention that turns out to be. Then again we do it to our children thru coparenting. The benefits of that I see by just looking around me today. I must be wrong off course no individual not belonging to some fancy thinktank is able to produce grandiose rhetoric or is it the other way around and we all can produce grandiose rhetoric?! See now I am confused!
Simply, The Insanity I See Around Us At Present Points To “The END Times…., NOT PROGRESS.
Predictions have a tendency to be self fulfilling. It would appear that the final book in a certain ancient text is being used, more or less, as a “plan” for global dominance. From what I understand, it doesn’t end well for most of mankind.
Interesting post and the topic of predictions, or prophecies make for interesting discussions. I believe there is something true about self-fulfilling prophecies, or group-think. However, I wonder how many people have ever considered United States Patent # 6,506,148, January 14, 2003, whereby a person’s nervous system can be manipulated on a subliminal level by being in close proximity to a computer monitor, or television? It is titled “Nervous system manipulation by electromagnetic fields from monitors”? The Abstract reads: “Physiological effects have been observed in a human subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near 1/2 Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. The image displayed on a computer monitor may be pulsed effectively by a simple computer program. For certain monitors, pulsed electromagnetic fields capable of exciting sensory resonances in nearby subjects may be generated even as the displayed images are pulsed with subliminal intensity.”
(sigh) awaiting moderation.. Short version.. NAZI’s, Atom bombs and Bayer. They are Evil.. I would have written it all in capslock.. but even then it doesnt get across how much evil these guys are.
I remember reading my first book by Dr Farrel, it was the Psyops and Nazi one (sorry cant remember the title).. And I remember thinking at that time.. Nazi’s?? Really? Oh come on..
I think that the real Allied Legend that everyone is ‘protecting’.. The big conspiracy that everyone feels is happening around them.. Is simply that.; The Nazi’s simply didnt lose the last World War.. We’ve been led to believe that the big nasty Nazi Machine was conquered and the nasty Nazi’s were all beaten. But they weren’t.
In order for humanity to continue into the 4th Reich, the human collective needed to see people punished for those extermination camps.. (that were inspired by the English Colonies in Africa.. lets not forget that part of history neither. But that was just concentration camps for slave trade….much nicer.) where so many Russian POW’s, Homosexuels, Intellectuels, Blacks, Cripples, and Jews, were gassed to death by IG Farben’s products.. So we were told that the Nazi’s lost, they turned over their Atom Bomb to pummel the Asian sub race on the other side of the planet, (No wonder they didnt want to use it on the European theatre.. they knew what a mess the fallout would make…. Question.. The Thule Societé and the Hyperboreens.. (whether you believe it or not is irrelevant..) Were they talking about a race of people from a nuclear devestated world, before or after Scientists were working out how to make a nuclear bomb? What came first? Tales of Hyperboreens and Nuclear devestation.. or the Atom Bomb?)
It depends on whether they first read the Vedas and the Mahabharata. It is not hard to extrapolate from the first nuclear fission experiments on atoms to the descriptions in those epics. It is just a matter of scale…
It is interesting to me how the still-radioactive areas in India – like in Rajasthan, India, west of Jodhpur – are not being jumped-on by Enterprising scientists. This particular radioactive-ash area covers three-square miles. Move along; nothing to see here…
None of us should overlook, or forget, the backstory of those extermination camps set up by the English for the African slave trade. Who first sold all those human slaves to the English, and why? Was it not other humans? Once one starts down that rabbit-hole then one can begin to unfold a more clear understanding of where all this insanity that swirls us around began, and more importantly where it is clearly headed?
Hi Nidster, it was the French who sold all the slaves to the English (now known as Americans :)) Slavery existed since ancient times. Its following those Rabbit holes that take us back to our roots..
Why did the French start wholesaling the African people? Because the other Tribes were selling them. Why were the other tribes selling them? Because slavery exists in their tribal heritage since….. Way back when… The question we need to ask is.. Why did they start putting people into slavery?? Because Life is Hard and we’re lazy as a species.. But WHY did they start thinking about Slavery as a solution if they hadnt been inspired by something they had seen?
Respectfully, it’s not so simple as to say it was the French who sold the English “all those slaves”. Here in the colonies when Massasoit’s son Ninigret (King Philip) ordered the extermination of Southern New Englanders of English descent, the resulting war caught up both friends and foes and ended with a cadre of captive Narragansetts and Wampanoags who rightly or wrongly were going to just keep killing us. The “solution” was ship the captives to Tripoli and sell them there (which is why I’ve long suspected that Al-Qaeda in the Maghreb was an answer to King Philip’s War). Many of the families involved in this transaction later became very prominent in the slave trade.
I seem to remember that many of the brothers of the Macedonian Community which developed the Cyrillic Alphabet were sold into slavery by the Germans, so the idea that slavery was somehow extrinsic to European society doesn’t seem credible. It was with us a lot longer than we tend to admit.
