Brave New World is upon us

MIT Technology ReviewChina’s CRISPR twins might have had their brains inadvertently enhanced

“The answer is likely yes, it did affect their brains,” says Alcino J. Silva, a neurobiologist at the University of California, Los Angeles, whose lab uncovered a major new role for the CCR5 gene in memory and the brain’s ability to form new connections…

Silva says because of his research, he sometimes interacts with figures in Silicon Valley and elsewhere who have, in his opinion, an unhealthy interest in designer babies with better brains. That’s why, when the birth of the twins became public on November 25, Silva says he immediately wondered if it had been an attempt at this kind of alteration. “I suddenly realized—Oh, holy shit, they are really serious about this bullshit,” says Silva. “My reaction was visceral repulsion and sadness.”

Perhaps Hillary Clinton should have taken heed… Now, this however falls into the category of BELIEVE IT OR NOT! We have previously warned about the propagation of Q-anon videos on Youtube (suspecting them to be a Cass Sunstein inspired cognitive infiltration campaign), but for what it’s worth – entertainment at least – the latest from the Ted Baxter of pizzagate has it that on 9/11/2016, Hillary’s frazzledripping habit caught up with her when she perished from the rare, cannibalism contracted disease, kuru. In the deep state’s desperation of prevent Donald Trump from becoming president, Hillary Frankenstein Clinton was brought back to life to complete the campaign, but to no avail…

[Update]

In his program of “libertarian paternalism” for social engineering, another of Cass Sunstein’s modus operandi concerns the art of the “nudge” – subtle influences designed to induce “transformative” social change (to borrow Obama’s messianic language). A common example would be in making organ donation an “opt out” rather than “opt in” choice for driver’s license forms. It’s just a slight alteration on a piece of paper, and it’s for a good cause. (Notwithstanding the externality of incentivizing organ harvesters.) With recent developments in neuroscience, however, the nudge is becoming something more invasive…

    CRISPR, changing genes in unborn babies, and the way CRISPR can act like a virus and be spread from person to person, is the most dangerous “medical” advance in history, and it’s happening now. For your sakes, the information below has comments for you IN CAPS, so you can see what is sneaking up on us, fueled by a reptilian-brained lust and greed for profit that has no connection to any sense of ethics or morality. However, you will be told that wonderful advances will be made, wiping out all diseases and removing unwanted genes that make people look “imperfect.”.
    They will also wipe out any pesky genes that might be judged less profitable. And they’ll get away with it, because governments will move in to own YOUR GENES. The argument will be that “she carries a cancer gene” or “he can get AIDS” or “she will be born a dwarf, UNLESS we…” or, Let’s create a baby that is sexless, so the child(or parents) can decide later what is the best sex to become”–or to remain sexless might be preferred.
    We are about to become a species-by-recipe.
    In the name of protecting you, just as they’re forcing you to take vaccines, so your very genes will soon come under scrutiny, to see if you will “pass on” “bad genes.” And those “bad genes” will be eliminated.
    Next, the chance for a “bad person” will be eliminated.
    All decided by the government…
    This is why we should take a stand for vaccine rights as a sacred right for every human being. Of course, epidemics can be created easily in many existing laboratories and force an entire population to take a particular vaccine, the contents of which can contain anything from gene-altering “viruses” to a latent virus that will act to make your children sterile, or God knows what else.
    Wild as this sounds, the technology now exists for all of the above to become a possibility.
    Retaining the right to keep your naturally-inherited genes — what I call “the FERAL GENOME” –the collection of genes that make you what you are –what you were naturally born with — is a right you must grab onto –and hold onto– for dear life. Literally.
    Have been preaching for years about the danger (see my book LETTERS TO THE CYBORGS for some interesting outcomes of altering genes, plus AI and Cyber-manipulation).

    THE FUTURE IS NOW: BIOTECH COMPANIES ARE TELLING YOU THEY PLAN TO ‘SELF-REGULATE’ (THE SAME FRIENDLY FOLKS WHO GAVE US 46-56 VACCINES FOR OUR AMERICAN-BORN CHILDREN, WHEN IN SWEDEN, IT’S ONLY 11-13 VACCINES!)

    Now that genetically engineered twin baby girls have been born, whose genes were altered to resist AIDS, the door to every kind of genetic manipulation is wide open.
    You should feel a natural aversion to chimeras–the current mixing of sheep and human brains, murine (mouse) and human brains, sheep and humans, and the genes of monkeys and pigs welded together.
    Yes, it’s so much fun, playing God!
    Right now, conferences are forming on how different nations can handle this new “breakthrough.”
    It’s possible that some enlightened nations will take possession of the genomes of their people, to “protect” their people’s genomes.

    THE OFFICIAL INFORMATION

    Declaration on genome editing released by biotech companies
    2 September 2019
    By Shaoni Bhattacharya
    Appeared in BioNews 1013

    Companies harnessing genome-editing technology have announced their own declaration on the use of the technology.
    ==OH, YES, THEY’LL BE HIGHLY-PRINCIPLED! THEY WILL MAKE SURE YOUR INTERESTS COME BEFORE THEIRS.==

    The ‘Statement of Principles’ was issued as a direct response to the controversy involving Dr He Jiankui, who claimed to have produced the world’s first genome-edited human babies last November (see BioNews 977).

    Dr He’s experiment caused international outcry as he used CRISPR genome-editing to make heritable changes to the embryos which produced the twin baby girls. He deleted a gene called CCR5, with the aim of ‘HIV-resistant infants’.

    UNCONSCIONABLE, UNETHICAL, INHUMAN… IMHO…

    Now 13 major companies are pledging not to use genome-editing in germline cells in a document released by the industry advocacy group Alliance for Regenerative Medicine (ARM), and to pursue clinically-validated therapeutic research in somatic cells under national or regional regulations.

    OH, BEAUTIFUL! THE GOVERNMENT WILL DECIDE WHAT EDITING OF OUR GENES WILL BE ALLOWED TO BE EXPLORED (EXPLOITED).

    ‘Gene editing is a rapidly developing technology that represents one of the most exciting developments in medicine,’ said Janet Lambert, the CEO of ARM on the launch of the declaration.

    She added: ‘As with all breakthrough biotechnologies, we need to exercise caution and good stewardship in our research and development practices and ensure that work involving the genetic modification of cells takes place within the bioethical framework outlined in these principles.’

    The declaration contains five points mainly focusing on the therapeutic potential of genome-editing in somatic cells, while stressing the industry’s commitment not to pursue human germline editing.

    NOT OPENLY, BUT EVERY MAJOR COUNTRY WILL SURELY DEVELOP GERMLINE EDITING FOR ‘SECURITY’ PURPOSES.
    DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE WORD ‘GERMLINE’–IT IS ANOTHER WAY TO SAY ‘GENE-LINE’ — BUT SOUNDS LESS ONEROUS.

    ‘We, as therapeutic developers utilising gene editing technologies, are solely focused on somatic cell approaches to therapeutic treatments and cures for disease,’ said the document.
    ==FOR NOW!==

    ‘Unless and until ethical and potential safety questions with respect to germline gene editing are adequately addressed, we do not support or condone germline gene editing in human clinical trials or for human implantation.’

    ==AND WHAT ABOUT CHINA, WHERE IT’S ALREADY HAPPENING? AND IN SECRET GOVERNMENT LABORATORIES SEEKING ‘THE PERFECT SOLDIER’ AS THEY HAVE DONE FOR YEARS?==

    The signatories include the company co-founded by CRISPR pioneer, Professor Emmanuelle Charpentier, CRISPR Therapeutics headquartered in Zug, Switzerland; Editas Medicine in Cambridge, Massachusetts, co-founded by Professor Jennifer Doudna; and Sangamo in Brisbane, California.

    CRISPR SHOULD BE BANNED,. BUT IT IS ALREADY SPREADING. LIKE A — ‘GERM.’==

    Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation (WHO), approved the first phase of a new registry to track human genome editing around the world. This will include trials using both somatic and germline genome editing.

    ‘Since our last meeting, some scientists have announced their wish to edit the genome of embryos and bring them to term,’ said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO’s Director-General. ‘This illustrates how important our work is, and how urgent.’

    ==AS YOU CAN SEE, ‘SELF-REGULATION’ BY THESE COMPANIES IS NOT GOING TO WORK. THE ALTERED BABIES ARE ALREADY BEING BORN….==
