A Woman's Perspective On The Times We Live In

First, The Bees. Now, the Butterflies!

     
     In the past, you might have read my post on the disappearance of Bees and the effect it will have on our ecosystem.  Now, it seems that the Monarch Butterfly is also in danger of becoming a victim of our old friend, Monsanto and its product, Roundup.  
     I will confess that we here in Texas have suffered from the massive swarms of Monarchs as they migrate to Mexico each winter.  We would literally drive into what seemed like walls of Monarchs that not only impaired your vision, but left your vehicle covered in hundreds of dead butterflies.  Not so much, anymore.  The last couple of winters have seen a significant decline in the migration, and the beautiful butterflies are becoming a rarity in these parts.
     In fact, in an article by The Washington Post, it is reported that "The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service summed it up in just one grim statistic: Since 1990, about 970 million [Monarch butterflies] have vanished."  The cause?  It can be traced to the eradication of milkweed, their primary food source and habitat.  This plant is the only upon which they lay eggs and their larvae feed.  Why is the milkweed being destroyed?  According to PNAS, (the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences), "In the US Corn Belt, a recent doubling in commodity prices has created incentives for landowners to convert grassland to corn and soybean cropping."   
     As Newsweek Magazine was careful to point out, "the cultivation of 1 million new acres of land in recent years -- driven by higher corn and soybean prices -- has destroyed milkweed crops, and greatly hurt monarchs."  Add to this, "the introduction of genetically-modified crops like Roundup-ready corn and soybeans that are resistant to traditional herbicides, [which means] farmers have begun to spray more and more Roundup—the Monsanto-made chemical—over wider and wider areas", further destroying the natural habitat of Monarchs ... the milkweed plant.
     Oh, what a wicked web that Monsanto is weaving!  By developing food products that are unnatural (GMOs), and spraying them with poisonous herbicides (containing Glyphosate), they are destroying anything natural and organic, including various species of insects and their habitats.
     But it is not just the push for more and more GMO food products that have endangered the Monarch population.  The Clean Energy Act of 2007, frequently referred to as the ethanol mandate, changed how we fueled our cars and it became evident that there would be an increase in the demand for, and price of corn.  That, along with the over-development of our cities and municipalities, has nearly guaranteed the destruction of the Monarch's natural habitat.
     So, why should we care about the possible extinction of the Monarch butterfly?  Butterfly-Conservation.org will give you a long list of reasons that these beautifies are important to save; including their aesthetic value, their educational value, and their scientific value.  I prefer to consider them as a creation of God, which means they play a part in the interwoven pattern of life that He constructed on this planet.  Besides the fact that they, along with their cousins the moth, are an important element of the food chain and are prey for birds, bats and other insectivorous animals, they provide a touch of delicate beauty in this ugly world.  For that alone they are worthy of being conserved.
     But let's not forget the bigger picture ... elements of our existence are being modified, destroyed and poisoned before our very eyes.  How natural is it for bees and butterflies to disappear?  And what makes us think that the Elite will find us indispensable or necessary to the cycle of life on this planet?  It seems to me that no regard is being given to the natural order of things or to God's creation.  Our food supply is being manipulated and controlled, while our ability to adapt to (or deflect) orchestrated change to our own life cycle is lessened.   How long, like the butterflies and the bees, until our numbers start to decline?

  1. At rt.com/news/ there is an article called
    Normandy 4 Ukraine Peace Talks in Minsk.
    As you will notice, all the people in the photo are dressed in black suits. Everything with the Elite is in Code, and backwards: when they say war, they mean peace, and vice versa. Overnight, Russia moved 50 tanks and 40 missiles into Ukraine. Yesterday, China stated that they are going to claim the Hawaiian Islands. This conflict will draw the rest of our troops out of the country, plus probably initiate the draft, if not even drafting females this time around. Korea and Japan will become involved, and Tawain will be nuked. I also expect to see the Muslims in Maylasia come out of the woodwork. Meanwhile, we have ISIS in the Middle East and WWIII that has already started in the Ukraine. But if they still want to carry out their agenda, CERN will need to still be able to open the portal to let their god inti earth's atmosphere through a hole in the shield around it. They almost blew it this week when a huge filament formed on the sun, and they stopped operations temporarily. Everything is coming quickly to a head, and they now have less than three years to accomplish their task. The sky rolling up like a scroll must occur due to CERN's operation. But they apparently cannot repair the damage, which allows protons from the sun to enter our atmosphere; this is why everything is toast, and one reAdonis for their underground bunkers. The other is to hide from us. It is Satan's payback for the flood of Noah's time- he seeks to slam the door shut in our faces.

    I do my best to alert folks as things develop. Or email me at karenjessup1@gmail.com, and I will also be able to share Lauren's great newsletters (Watcher One).
