First living thing with ‘alien’ DNA created in the lab: We are now officially playing God
Scientists have succeeded in creating the first organism with “alien” DNA. In normal DNA, which can be found within the genes of every organism , the twin strands of the double helix are bonded together with four bases, known as T, G, A, and C. In this new organism, the researchers added two new bases, X and Y, creating a new form of DNA that (as far as we know) has never occurred after billions of years of evolution on Earth or elsewhere in the universe. Remarkably, the semi-synthetic alien organism continued to reproduce normally, preserving the new alien DNA during reproduction.
We Can Only Imagine What Scientists Are Doing Behind High-Tech Closed Doors In Preparation Of The Coming War On Christians – But With The First Living Things Made Out Of ‘Alien’ DNA, We’ve Now Officially Taken Over God’s Creation.
The federal government is piecing together a sweeping national “biosurveillance” system that will give bureaucrats near real-time access to Americans’ private medical information in the name of national security, according to Twila Brase, a public health nurse and co-founder of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom.
hey should be very concerned about the fact that this is really a sweeping strategy to oversee your entire life with the intention of keeping you, and making you keep yourself, healthy,” she continued.
“And that is a government that is too big. That is a government that says you have no freedom, because if you are not free from surveillance, you are not free.”
The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response is currently seeking public comment on a 52-page draft of the proposed “National Health Security Strategy 2015-2018” (NHSS).
As someone who spends the vast majority of his time trying to keep up with what is happening in the world, I am always embarrassed when confronted by an extraordinarily important story that I somehow completely missed. The story I am referring to in this case is the fact that the CIA organized a fake vaccination program in Pakistan several years ago in order to get Osama bin Laden’s family DNA. The Guardian reported this back in 2011:
The CIA organised a fake vaccination programme in the town where it believed Osama bin Laden was hiding in an elaborate attempt to obtain DNA from the fugitive al-Qaida leader’s family, a Guardian investigation has found.
The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals may have just dealt a serious blow to the U.S. Constitution…
In a unanimous decision earlier this month the Court determined that law enforcement officers are not required to present a warrant or charges before forcibly entering a person’s home, searching it, and confiscating their firearms if they believe it is in the individual’s best interests.
The landmark suit was brought before the court by Krysta Sutterfield of Milwaukee, who had recently visited a psychiatrist for outpatient therapy resulting from some bad news that she had received. According to court records Sutterfield had expressed a suicidal thought during the visit, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, when she said “I guess I’ll go home and blow my brains out.” This prompted her doctor to contact police.
For several hours the police searched for Sutterfield, speaking with neighbors and awaiting her return home. They received an update from her psychiatrist who said that Sutterfield had contacted her and advised that she was not in need of assistance and to “call off” the search, which the doctor did not agree to. Police eventually left and Sutterfield returned home, only to be visited later that evening by the lead detective on the case:
“Schindler’s List” producer Gerald Molen, who is working on a new film with conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, says he will be watching for a federal court to deliver justice when a sentencing hearing is held in the fall on D’Souza’s violation of campaign laws.
D’Souza on Tuesday pleaded guilty to one part of a federal indictment in a plea bargain that had prosecutors give up on the worst counts. He will be sentenced in September.
There have been claims the case was a politically charged prosecution from the outset. Molen said he will be among those watching to make sure politics don’t influence the sentencing.
Molen issued a statement after D’Souza’s court hearing Tuesday.
“This administration doesn’t see its opponents as dissenters but as enemies, and if they can’t refute you, they try to lock you up,” he said.
Exit the Petrodollar, Enter the Gas-o-Yuan
And then, talking about anxiety in Washington, there’s the fate of the petrodollar to consider, or rather the “thermonuclear” possibility that Moscow and Beijing will agree on payment for the Gazprom-CNPC deal not in petrodollars but in Chinese yuan. One can hardly imagine a more tectonic shift, with Pipelineistan intersecting with a growing Sino-Russian political-economic-energy partnership. Along with it goes the future possibility of a push, led again by China and Russia, toward a new international reserve currency — actually a basket of currencies — that would supersede the dollar (at least in the optimistic dreams of BRICS members).
The Pentagon has its own version of this directed not so much at Russia as at China, which, its think tank on future warfare claims, is already at war with Washington in a number of ways. So if it’s not apocalypse now, it’s Armageddon tomorrow. And it goes without saying that whatever’s going wrong, as the Obama administration very publicly “pivots” to Asia and the American media fills with talk about a revival of Cold War-era “containment policy” in the Pacific, it’s all China’s fault.
Embedded in the mad dash toward Cold War 2.0 are some ludicrous facts-on-the-ground: the US government, with $17.5 trillion in national debt and counting, is contemplating a financial showdown with Russia, the largest global energy producer and a major nuclear power, just as it’s also promoting an economically unsustainable military encirclement of its largest creditor, China.
Russia runs a sizeable trade surplus. Humongous Chinese banks will have no trouble helping Russian banks out if Western funds dry up. In terms of inter-BRICS cooperation, few projects beat a $30 billion oil pipeline in the planning stages that will stretch from Russia to India via Northwest China. Chinese companies are already eagerly discussing the possibility of taking part in the creation of a transport corridor from Russia into Crimea, as well as an airport, shipyard, and liquid natural gas terminal there. And there’s another “thermonuclear” gambit in the making: the birth of a natural gas equivalent to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries that would include Russia, Iran, and reportedly disgruntled US ally Qatar.
While we watch the spectacle unfold, with no end game in sight, keep in mind that a new force is growing in Eurasia, with the Sino-Russian strategic alliance threatening to dominate its heartland along with great stretches of its inner rim. Now, that’s a nightmare of Mackinderesque proportions from Washington’s point of view. Think, for instance, of how Zbigniew Brzezinski, the former national security adviser who became a mentor on global politics to President Obama, would see it.
In his 1997 book The Grand Chessboard, Brzezinski argued that “the struggle for global primacy [would] continue to be played” on the Eurasian “chessboard,” of which “Ukraine was a geopolitical pivot.” “If Moscow regains control over Ukraine,” he wrote at the time, Russia would “automatically regain the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.”
Furthermore, the mysterious Bilderberg group is a branch of the Illuminati dubbed with a fancier name. David Rockefellar himself—a man in the upper ranks of the Illuminati—is the member advisor of the entire group.
Although the group claims to not discuss political agendas, their website and words scream otherwise. Their next meeting will be held May/June of this year and you will be shocked at what they plan on discussing…..
While New York City based banks, insurance companies and other corporations received an estimated $3.5 to $4 billion in death benefits on the lives of workers killed during 9/11, according to a June 2003 presentation made by Ron Colligan to the Society of Actuaries, specific details on amounts received on a company-by-company basis have not been made public.
The death benefits among all U.S. corporations may now exceed $1 trillion and are growing annually. The practice is called Bank-Owned Life Insurance (BOLI) where banks are involved and Corporate-Owned Life Insurance (COLI) for other corporations. As we reported last month, just four of Wall Street’s largest banks (JPMorgan, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Citigroup) hold a total of $68.1 billion in Bank-Owned Life Insurance assets. According to Michael Myers, an expert on BOLI and COLI and a partner in the Houston, Texas law firm McClanahan Myers Espey, L.L.P., those assets could potentially mean that just these four banks are holding $681 billion in face amount of life insurance on their workers, or possibly even more.
Nearly 10 million U.S. households remain stuck in homes worth less than their mortgage and a similar number have so little equity they can’t meet the expenses of selling a home, trends that help explain recent sluggishness in the housing recovery.
At the end of the first quarter, some 18.8% of U.S. homeowners with a mortgage—9.7 million households—were “underwater” on their mortgage, according to a report scheduled for release Tuesday by real-estate information site Zillow Inc.
While that is an improvement from 19.4% at the end of last year and a peak of 31.4% 2012, those figures understate the problem.
In addition to the homeowners who are underwater, roughly 10 million households have 20% or less equity in their homes, which makes it difficult for them to sell their homes without dipping into their savings. Most move-up homeowners typically use their home equity to cover broker fees, closing costs and a down payment for their next home. Without those funds, many homeowners can’t sell.
Lets see. The Maestro was allegedly a data hound. Did he not notice that housing prices in the US rose for 111 straight months from late 1994 to 2006, and during that period increased by nearly 200% on average across US neighborhoods. How in the world could this giant aberration have escaped the notice of the money printers around Greenspan in the Eccles Building?
How in the world could any adult thinker blame this on factory girls in China—that is, a policy regime that caused excessive savings. In fact, it is plainly evident that the People’s Printing Press of China attempted to protect is exchange rate from appreciating against the flood of dollars emitted from the Eccles Building. It did this in mercantilist fashion by pegging the RMB exchange rate and thereby accumulating a massive hoard of US treasury notes and Fannie/Freddie paper.
In short, China didn’t “save ” America into a housing crisis; the Greenspan Fed printed America into a cheap debt binge that ended up impairing the residential housing market for years to come.
So the problem with central bank inflation of financial bubbles is that when they burst the damage is extensive, capricious and long-lasting. On the latter front, new data from Zillow Inc. provide a dramatic case in point.
Here we are 96 months after the housing peak, yet there are still 20 million households which are either underwater on their mortgages or do not have enough embedded equity to cover the transaction costs and down payment needed to move. Since there are only 50 million households with mortgages, that means that as a practical matter 40% of mortgage borrowers are precluded from trading-up.
In recent weeks the San Fran Fed has regaled us with such brilliant rhetorical questions: “How Important Are Hedge Funds In A Crisis” (after spending an unknown amount of taxpayer funds, it uncovered that the answer is “Very”), and “Is It Still Worth Going To College” (after spending even more taxpayer funds, its conclusion was “Yes”, even though a subsequent Pew research study showed that the net worth of young college educated households with debt is below that of high school grads without debt).
Today, it stuns us with even more sheer brilliance in attempting to explain “The Slowdown in Existing Home Sales.”
Keep in mind the generic explanation for this “surprising”, and non-compliant with a general “economic recovery” finding, proffered by economists and experts in the past few months has been a simple one: “the harsh weather”… that was the case at least until we showed that the biggest slowdown in home sales in the peak snow month of January was in the region least impacted by weather: namely the West.
So what does the San Fran Fed propose as the explanation for the plunge in existing home sales? Why rising rates.
The White House will be “picking up the pace on executive actions,” as Congress focuses its efforts on the newly formed select committee investigating Benghazi, senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer declared Tuesday.
In an op-ed for The Huffington Post, Pfeiffer argued that congressional Republicans are not interested in engaging on the economy, instead spending time “obsessively trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act” and “ginning up politically motivated investigations.”
“Given this dynamic, President Obama has only one option — use every ounce of his authority to unilaterally improve economic security,” Pfeiffer said.
In the alternative media, we constantly hear the mantra that if we could only “wake up” enough Americans, we could stop the globalists in their tracks. and then we lament the fact that most of our fellow countrymen are dumber than a box of rocks. However, the worm may be turning and turning dramatically! There are six corporations which control 98% of the media and their media investments are taking a beating. Americans watch almost 35 hours of television per week. That is a lot of Pavlovian conditioning that is taking place as a result of television and the corporate controlled message coming out of the “boob tube”.
Our nation is inundated with an amazing amount of propaganda and a decidedly one-sided view of the world. Gone from the media are any alternative theories behind the 9/11 attacks. The JFK assassination conspiracy theories that were once dominant in the 1990′s have all but disappeared. Benghazi has been whitewashed by the mainstream media (e.g. Fox, CNN, MSNBC). Whatever happened to Fast and Furious?
The globalists know they are losing the information war, but they are determined to not lose control and they are willing to sacrifice much of humanity to maintain control. This is why false flag events, martial law, bankster wars and genocide were invented. History shows that when the elite lose control of the propaganda machine martial law and genocide is the next stop. This is what we must be prepared for in the upcoming months.
Head of political-military affairs at Defense Ministry, Amos Gilad, warns of storm clouds “on the horizon,” says Israel has not been able to stop build up of Hezbollah’s rocket arsenal.
Iran can break out to nuclear weapons “very quickly,” and Israel must maintain operational readiness for any threat that may arise, Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad, director of political-military affairs at the Defense Ministry, warned on Monday.
Speaking in Tel Aviv at a security conference organized by the Israel Defense publication and the Israel Artillery Association, Gilad said the security forecast was not sunny. “Today is a pleasant day. But there are clouds, and a storm, on the horizon,” he said. “People don’t believe it until it comes,” he added.
I left you yesterday with a rather strange thought. Our financial world follows a cycle of 8.6 years, or 3140 days.
Do we have such a strong herd instinct that we can be measured that closely?
Well apparently, this is so. I don’t like this idea any better than you do, but I am forced to agree that it’s true – especially since I’ve seen this ‘herd instinct’ in action for myself.
So, what I would like to do today is talk a bit about why this Economic Confidence Model created by Martin Armstrong is actually something to pay close attention to, and why you should be increasing your efforts to prepare for unimaginable disaster..
his is a very crude and simple explanation for what the Economic Confidence Model tracks – the ebb and flow of money around the world. And, this model predicts the ebb for the US happening after the Summer of 2015.
It Begins In 2015
Unfortunately, the United States government has captured a massive portion of the US economy, and that weight will magnify the collapse.
It will begin with investment assets, but it will not end there. Banks will fail (and not be rescued). Private deposit accounts will be eliminated. Businesses will collapse, throwing people out of work. Unrest will explode.
How quickly this will happen is anybody’s guess, but rest assured that you do not want to be anywhere near the flashpoints for unrest as the Summer of 2015 ends. Over time, every major city will become a source of massive violence.
This will all happen over the course of the final part of 2015 and through to the middle of the Fall of 2016. Then you will get something of a breather. Things will get a little better – for a year.
When we hit the end of 2017, all Hell will break loose.
Credit Mania Update – The Chase for CCC-Rated Bonds
A little too many comparisons to 2007 for my taste.
Just understand that your pension is going to be stuffed completely full like a Thanksgiving Turkey with the most toxic financial shit you can imagine by the time this thing blows sky-high.
Muppets will lose, as always.
Slowly – but surely – the USD’s hegemony is being chipped away whether by foreign policy faux pas, crossed red-lines, or economic fragility. However, on Day 1 of Vladimir Putin’s trip to China it is clear that the two nations are as close as ever. VTB – among Russia’s largest banks – has signed a deal with Bank of China to pay each other in domestic currencies, bypassing the need for US Dollars for “investment banking, inter-bank lending, trade finance and capital-markets transactions.” Kirill Dmitriyev the head of Russia’s Direct Investment Fund notes, “together it’ll be possible to discuss investment in various projects much more efficiently and clearly,” as Russia’s pivot to Asia continues to gather steam.

Israel saw the new moon in the sky and so had it’s New Year’s Day on the same day as the announcement of the new pope, 13/3/13. This is not just New Year’s Day for Israel, but for all those who believe God and the Bible’s calendar.
As a sign of the troubled times ahead, a comet Pan STARRS was seen travelling through the sky near the new moon on this same day, 13/3/13, the New Year’s Day for Israel and all Bible-believers and God’s faithful. .
Comet ISON was projected to either impact our Sun (or hopefully just graze it) on November 28, 2013.
November 28, 2013 marked the first day of Hanukkah 2013 .
The first Blood Moon of the Tetrad fell on April 13, 2014 Passover.
May 24th the Earth goes through Comet Linear debris center as the Pope is In Jerusalem
New Comets serve as warnings too of impeding judgment. Shoemaker-Levi hit Jupiter (King Planet) on Av 9 (1994) (Jewish Temple destruction day) for 7 days with 22 impacts. Seven is the number of spiritual perfection and 22 is the number of the Hebrew Aphabet encompassing the Aleph and the Tav or first and the last or the Alpha and Omega. All of God’s word stands between the Aleph and the Tav. A early warning sign to Israel of God’s great and terrible day, the time of Jacob’s trouble. In 1997 Hale Bopp appeared, thought by many to be Noahic comet based on Harvard U professors study of its 4210 year orbital cycle. As in the “days of Noah” so shall it be in the end times. .
Palestinian Authority (PA) and Arab Christian sources are already celebrating Pope Francis’s visit to Israel starting next Sunday, saying his choice to begin the trip directly in PA-held Bethlehem is meant to “recognize Palestine” and “oppose the occupation.”
“He is taking a helicopter directly from Jordan to Palestine – to Bethlehem. It’s a kind of sign of recognizing Palestine,” Father Jamal Khader of the Latin patriarchate in Jerusalem told AFP.
The claims that his trip will begin in a “recognition of Palestine” comes amid reports from February by Rabbi Sergio Bergman, a member of the Argentinian parliament and close friend of Pope Francis, who said that the pope intends to define himself as the “Che Guevera of the Palestinians” and support their “struggle and rights” during his visit.
In Bethlehem the pope is to travel in an open-top car and meet with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, holding “mass” prayer services there instead of in Jerusalem in what has been called a show of support for the PA.
It has been noted that the pope has been remarkably tight-lipped over the violent persecution of Christians in Bethlehem, instead choosing to condemn alleged Jewish “price tag” vandalism.
After the “mass” services, the pope is to visit a nearby “refugee camp.”
“Knowing who he is, and his sensitivity for all those who suffer, I am sure that he will say something defending all those who are suffering, including the Palestinians who live under occupation,” Khader said.
A visit to “end the occupation”
The political aspects of the visit were highlighted by Hind Khoury, a former PA minister for Jerusalem affairs, who said “everything will be highly charged politically.”
“This visit will help us in supporting our struggle to end the longest occupation in history,” said Ziyyad Bandak, Abbas’s adviser for Christian affairs.
Bandak noted that the pope “will have a lunch with Palestinians, with families suffering from the occupation…then he will visit Dheishe refugee camp to witness the suffering of Palestinian refugees.”
The fact that “the pope will begin his visit in Palestine and not Israel,” as Bandak put it, was meant as a slight to the Jewish state according to the PA official, who added “I know that Israeli officials are not happy with this decision.”
The U.S. mediator between Israel and the Palestinian leaders who was appointed by President Barack Obama and works closely with Secretary of State John Kerry was allegedly heard in a Washington, D.C., bar blaming Israel for the failures of the peace talk process, according to Israeli news source Arutz Sheva on Saturday.
Martin Indyk, Obama’s chief American negotiator, who works closely with Secretary Kerry in the peace talk process, was heard while drinking at a bar condemning the Jewish nation for its part in causing the peace talks to fail.
For those curious how much further into banana status the “developed” world may further drop, look no further than Turkey which is rapidly becoming the case study of banana governance par excellence.
Last Wednesday, PM Recep Erdogan (who has already served the maximum three terms as prime minister and is expected to run for president in August) visited the coal mine in the western town of Soma where 282 miners were killed in a tragic mining accident which also was the country’s worst mining disaster. But if the purpose of his visit was political and to generate empathy brownie points with the local population, things quickly turned sour after angry protesters heckled Erdogan and scuffles broke out between demonstrators and police in Soma, forcing the Turkish leader to take refuge in a supermarket before being driven off in a black vehicle.
What happened next was shocking: according to Turkish newspaper Hurriyet a protester kicked a vehicle in Erdogan’s convoy, prompting the special forces police to jump in and force the man to the ground. Then Yusuf Yerkel, an advisor to the Rukish prime minister, kicked the protester “three or four times,” the paper said. Unfortunately for Yerkel, the moment was caught on video and immediately made the rounds on recently unbanned Twitter.
Seemingly, the number of officials and prominent citizens that would abuse our children seems to have no limit and nobody is doing anything about it.
In the light of my revelations regarding the concerted effort of both Virginia’s CPS and Illinois CPS to abduct and sex traffic Monika Wesolowski’s son, Dylan, it should not surprise anyone that prominent leaders of the global elite are at the forefront of this scourge upon humanity. In Part two of this series, I detailed how former Centre District Attorney, Ray Gricar, was “disappeared” after getting too close to the child pimping activities of Jerry Sandusky’s Second Mile Foundation, which was sponsored by many influential corporate and political figures. When this scandal reached into the office of the Governor of Pennsylvania, the media reports abruptly ceased. I must admit that I am still appalled about how high this international conspiracy goes in terms of abducting our children and ultimately sex trafficking them to the elite for their perverted pleasures.
The Royal Family
Brandon Turbeville successfully linked proven British pedophile Jimmy Savile to Prince Charles. Conveniently, and follow Savile’s death, his heinous exploits against children were revealed. Among the tales include how he used to tour children’s hospitals and select children for his underground child sex ring. He and the Prince were exceptionally close. In fact, he served as a marriage counselor, of sorts, to Prince Charles. The connections between the two, as pointed out in the Turbeville article, are undeniable. After looking at the evidence, summarized by Turbeville, it is hard to not conclude that Prince Charles did indeed traffic in stolen children. Another royal family member, the Queen, is no stranger to child sex trafficking.
More recently, from this past March, the UK High Court Justice Fulford, a long time advisor to Queen Elizabeth, was named as a co-defendant along with Pope Francis, in international court proceedings looking into their involvement in cleric child abuse, trafficking rings and evidence cover ups. Judge Fulford threw out 22,000 pieces of evidence in a 2011 Hague ICC International court that implicated the former Pope Joseph Ratzinger to child rapists. This same Brussels international court issued arrest warrants on Queen Elizabeth and former Pope Joseph Ratzinger after finding them guilty, along with 38 other global elites, in the rape, torture and murder of over 50,000 missing Canadian indigent children.
At least some members of Congress are looking to retaliate in kind. An amendment to the annual Pentagon budget bill, expected to pass this week, instructs President Obama to begin talks with the Ukrainian government aimed at ending long-standing cooperation between Kiev and Moscow on the maintenance of their Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, or ICBMs. The long-range missiles are known in Russia as the RS-20s and dubbed by NATO as the SATANs.
Both sides have run their nuclear drills (US here and Russia here) and it had all gone eerily quiet in the detente between the West and Russia…until now:
RUSSIA TEST FIRES INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE: INTERFAX

That should wake things up…for the 2nd time in two months. Time to BTFWWIII.

Of course – panic set in and so “Someone” – from the NY Fed – decided it was a perfect time to sell the shit out of the VIX ETF in massive size…
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Shanghai ahead of a summit at which Russia and China are hoping to deepen ties.
The two countries will make a “substantial” announcement and sign agreements, said Xinhua.
They will also kick off a joint military exercise involving their navies.
The summit comes as Russia and China face criticism over disputes in Ukraine and the South China Sea.
Crimea’s secession to Russia – and Putin’s gracious acceptance of their request for annexation – has focused all eyes on the peninsula’s landmass and rolling tanks; but, as we have noted previously, NY Times reports that when Russia acquired not just the Crimean landmass but also a maritime zone more than three times its size with the rights to underwater resources potentially worth trillions of dollars. It’s all about the resources as we have noted previously but Russian officials are quick to play this down, “compared to all the potential Russia has got, there was no interest there,” but as one analyst noted, Russia’s annexation of Crimea “so obvious” as a play for offshore riches. No wonder Putin is happy to take on the ‘burden’ of Crimea.
Q: How do you get a one-armed Polak Frenchman out of a tree?
A: Wave to him
How does the New Normal saying go: “socialist-motion trainwreck”?
In a time before the New Normal “fairness doctrine” where socialized companies such as GM have 60% more recalls in 5 months than they had sales in the prior year, a story such as the following would belong at best to a surreal “Polak” joke. Unfortunately, in this centrally-planned day and age, it is all too real. Reuters reports that in order to boost GDP and to cement that even under hard-core socialism France is still a manufacturing powerhouse, the French national rail company SNCF had ordered some 2000 trains for an expanded regional network from the national rail operator RFF. There was just one problem: the trains were too wide.
North Korea, which this month threatened to carry out a fourth nuclear test, may be closer than previously thought to putting a nuclear warhead on a missile, some experts say, making a mockery of years of U.N. sanctions aimed at curbing such a program.
Delay, a former Texas congressman, said there are some inner-city areas where “leftist organizations” have “completely destroyed” the educational system.
He cited Detroit and Washington, D.C., as two examples.
“But mostly around the country race has no part being played in our educational system,” DeLay said.
“They just want to keep that going because it just keeps people motivated to see their point of view, their world of view, and follow them right over the cliff.”
DeLay said nobody should be surprised by President Barack Obama’s
decision to release 36,000 convicted murderers, rapists, and other felons back into society as they were awaiting deportation hearings.
“This president has chosen not to enforce immigration laws,” DeLay said.
“He’s now creating a sanctuary nation where illegal immigrants don’t have to have any problem or have no problem in breaking the law because the law enforcement within those cities and now within the United States aren’t going to arrest them, aren’t going to detain them, and certainly are not going to deport them.
On the subject of immigration reform, DeLay said he does not see House Speaker John Boehner bringing the issue to a vote before the August break on Capitol Hill.
If someone disagrees with the policies of the Obama administration, or points out the black-on-black crime is much higher than white-on-black crime, they are often branded racists.
If you’re not a left leaning democrat and prefer to identify with the ideas of the Tea Party movement, guess what? Yep, you’re a racist.
Earlier this week First Lady Michelle Obama urged schoolchildren to monitor their parents for racially insensitive comments because Federal laws can only go so far in stopping racism.
While we don’t have any racially insensitive incidents against African Americans to report at this time, maybe Mrs. Obama can assist us with the insensitive and racist actions taken by organizers of the annual White Privilege Conference held in Madison, Wisconsin.
According to Progressives Today, when a white student reporter attempted to enter a workshop being held at the conference he was escorted out of the area because his race was too offensive to other participants, the majority of whom were black.
The reason? An organizer told our investigator: “It can feel, for some people of color, unsafe. Not universally – like in your group everybody was fine, but for some people it can feel like, oh, I don’t … ”
“Because I was white they would feel unsafe?” our reporter asked as he was led out of the workshop.
“Exactly. Exactly,” the organizer said. “And it’s not because you’ve done anything. You seem like a perfectly fine person, but it’s because of experiences they’ve had with others.”
Did you know that scientists are creating cow/human hybrids, pig/human hybrids and even mouse/human hybrids? This is happening every single day in labs all over the western world, but most people have never even heard about it. So would you drink milk from a cow/human hybrid that produces milk that is almost identical to human breast milk? And how would you interact with a mouse that has a brain that is almost entirely human? These are the kinds of questions that we will have to start to address as a society as scientists create increasingly bizarre human/animal hybrids. Thanks to dramatic advances in genetic technology, we have gotten to the point where it is literally possible for college students to create new hybrid lifeforms in their basements. Of course our laws have not kept pace with these advances, and now that Pandora’s Box has been opened, it is going to be nearly impossible to shut it.
Scientists try to justify the creation of human/animal hybrids by telling us that it will help “cure disease” and help “end world hunger”, but what if scientists discover that combining human DNA with animal DNA can give us incredible new abilities or greatly extended lifespans? Will humanity really have the restraint to keep from going down that road?
In my previous article entitled “Transhumanists: Superhuman Powers And Life Extension Technologies Will Allow Us To Become Like God“, I explored the obsession that transhumanists have with human enhancement. The temptation to “take control of our own evolution” will surely be too great for many scientists to resist. And even if some nations outlaw the complete merging of humans and animals, that does not mean that everyone else in the world will.
And once animal DNA gets into our breeding pool, how will we ever put the genie back into the bottle? As the DNA of the human race becomes corrupted, it is easy to imagine a future where there are very few “pure humans” remaining.
Sadly, most of the scientists working in this field express very little concern for these types of considerations. In fact, one very prominent U.S. geneticist says that we should not even worry about hybridization because he believes that humans were originally pig/chimpanzee hybrids anyway…
Within a week of simply measuring out the one or two grams of powder, the chemist’s throat became congested, her nose dripped and face became flushed. Then her skin began to react to her earrings and belt buckle. Her symptoms continued even after she stopped working with the material and moved to another floor. Once outside her workplace the symptoms improved.
“She can never work inside that building again,” said Dr. Shane Journeay, a medical doctor and nanotoxicologist at the University of Toronto. Journeay coauthored the case study with Dr Rose Goldman of the Harvard School of Public Health. It was just published in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine.
“This is the first well-documented case of a worker handling nanoparticles in a US manufacturing facility developing serious health effects,” Journeay told Motherboard.
“Is this the tip of the iceberg?” asked Journeay, who specializes in occupational health and safety.
Tens of thousands of people may have been unknowingly exposed to an exotic array of nanomaterials in the workplace over the last decade. Now a US worker is the first fully documented human casualty of the booming $20 billion+ nanotech industry.
The 26-year-old chemist didn’t know she was using nickel nanoparticle powder at a work. Nano means really, really small. How many nanoparticles would fit on the head of a pin? Answer: 100 million. A strand of DNA is Godzillian in size by comparison.
There is no requirement to label nano stuff as nano even though these extraordinarily small things have extraordinary properties which makes them useful and valuable. Nor are there nano-specific regulations about how to safely handle many of them.
But most of the experts warned of downsides as well. Security was one of the most immediate concerns. “Most of the devices exposed on the internet will be vulnerable,” wrote Jerry Michalski, founder of the think tank REX. “They will also be prone to unintended consequences: they will do things nobody designed for beforehand, most of which will be undesirable.”
We’ve already seen security camera DVRs hacked to mine bitcoins as well as a worm that targets internet connected devices like home routers. As more devices come online, we can expect to see an increase in this kind of attack.
ustin Reich, a fellow at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, hedged his bets. “I’m not sure that moving computers from people’s pockets (smartphones) to people’s hands or face will have the same level of impact that the smartphone has had,” he wrote. “But things will trend in a similar direction. Everything that you love and hate about smartphones will be more so.”
So, which is it? Will AI lead to a dystopian or a utopian future?
We are by no means experts at identifying instances of fire caught on camera under low illumination conditions, but the following compressed 3 minute video from the official Tepco YouTube feed (where 1 second of the clip represents 20 seconds in real time) showing the Fukushima nuclear power plant between 8:00pm and 9:00 pm last night, and particularly the segment 1:16 into the clip and continuing for about 30 seconds (or about 6 minutes in the real world), certainly looks disturbing.
That said, we are confident Tepco has a canned and ready for dissemination explanation which soothes away fears that in addition to free gamma rays, the Fukushima sarcophagus is now also in the flambe a la carte business.
We can’t wait to hear it.
When the lid was finally opened and Liao caught his first glimpse of the body inside, he was astonished to see a golden-haired figure that was even taller than Yao Ming, the famous 2.26-meter-tall basketball player.
Even though the discovery happened more than five years ago, Liao, director of the institute of the Culture of the Western Region at Tarim University in Alar, couldn’t hide his excitement when he recalled the moment he came face to face with the tallest man of a “tribe of giants”.
“The skeleton of the tallest mummy discovered so far is about 2.3 meters, and the coffin is about 2.8 meters long, but medical experts say the man may have been even taller when he was alive. In addition to features similar to those of ancient Europeans, such as blond hair and high cheekbones, many of the mummies or skeletons have large frames, more than 2 meters tall,” said the 40-year-old, who was one of the first experts to explore the site in 2003 at the request of local farmers.
Many years passed before the farmers finally told their tale, and it wasn’t until 2013 that the importance of the site began to be understood when researchers from Queen’s University in Belfast in the United Kingdom analyzed bones, hair and seeds and concluded that the tomb could date back 4,600 years, Liao said..
