Our Assembly-Line Future?

Human civilization has taken an important turn with the publication of a new report by the Nuffield Council, the semi-official bioethics agency of the United Kingdom. The document, two years in preparation, gives the go-ahead to genetically engineer human beings at the embryonic stages of development. The report stated: “There is potential for heritable genome editing interventions to be used at some point in the future in assisted human reproduction, as a means for people to secure certain characteristics in their children.” If history is a guide, the U.S. will not lag far behind the U.K. in following this dangerous path.

The U.K. pioneered human genetic engineering by approving, earlier this year, a technique to construct embryos using parts of the eggs of two different women, along with a man’s sperm, to create “three-person embryos.” Though deceptively promoted as “mitochondrial transfer,” the procedure really involves transferring around 20 thousand genes from a woman with impaired mitochondria into another woman’s egg. The accurate “three-person” designation was only widely used in the scientific literature after the procedure became legal. Similar misrepresentations of the technicalities are contained in the Nuffield recommendations.

Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel, Brave New World, recounted the dire social consequences of purposefully fashioning humans with different biological endowments. His method of choice was in vitro fertilization, first demonstrated in animals in the 1930s, but only performed successfully in humans with the birth of Louise Brown (also in the U.K.) in 1978. By putting certain enriching or toxic substances in the culture medium, “superior” or “inferior” human specimens could be produced, according to society’s needs.

Now, due to the revolution in molecular genetics that has taken place since Huxley’s time, would-be embryo improvers have at their disposal the CRISPR-Cas9 DNA manipulation system. Though this technique has been touted for its accuracy, an article published in the journal Nature Biotechnology the same day as the Nuffield report bore the title ”Repair of double-stranded breaks induced by CRISPR-Cas9 leads to large deletions and complex rearrangements.” Notwithstanding this, and earlier indications along the same lines, the Nuffield Council is optimistic that gene engineers will eventually have the technical means to do what they intend, that is make taller, smarter and more beautiful people.

The second half of the 20th century was marked by the world economy suffering irreversible and potentially catastrophic changes. Once the US obtained virtually uncontested economic and military influence in the world, the Federal Reserve found itself in a position where it was able to print piles of dollars on demand without worrying about the overall sustainability of global finances. This resulted in decades of warmongering, media manipulation and a cult of consumption that turned to be highly profitable for the US, which would exchange goods from all across the globe for useless pieces of green paper. Essentially, the con of the century has come to bear. The situation resembles a TV show where banks, corporations, rating agencies and governments have become a part of a huge conspiracy aimed at persuading the rest of the world that Washington’s securities are the safest assets in the world, even safer than gold.

It was only logical that some alternative system would eventually contest the dominance of the American dolla, and crypto currencies have emerged  as the tool states were waiting for begin the process of de-dollarization. At the same time this article is not going to try to downplay in any way the fact that Bitcoin has been created and utilized by American and British intelligence agencies to move liquidity quickly without tying it to finance their operations overseas. One can note that the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, turned out to be “a group of American cryptographers.”

It’s been noted that a limited number of countries have emerged as cryptocurrency havens and have played a pivotal role in the development of cryptocurrencies. The top three around the world by the rate of adoption of cryptocurrencies are South Korea, Russia and Venezuela. And across all three, cryptocurrency is widely seen as a different means to a different end.

In South Korea, cryptocurrencies have been widely perceived as an alternative investment path that can potentially deliver enormous returns in a highly competitive environment.

In Venezuela the rapid development of cryptocurrencies was triggered by an economic collapse spurred by Western sanctions against this oil-producing country. Some would argue that cryptocurrencies in Venezuela are seen as a more convenient and reliable store of value than the destitute bolívar,

Italy’s EU future survives, but expect pushback against Russian sanctions (Video)

03-06-18 06:04:00,

US President Donald Trump has just lectured NATO on it member’s commitment performance and held a controversial meeting with the Russian President Vladimir Putin and is next week to receive EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, with trade matters being high up on the agenda.

Juncker is expected to present Trump with a package of proposals to help smooth relations and potentially heal areas of division, particularly those surrounding Europe’s trade relationship with America. Those proposals are precisely what is cropping up as another area of divergence between some members of the EU, specifically France and Germany, just after a major contention on migration has been driving discord within the Union.

This gets down to whether Europe should offer concessions to Trump on trade while Trump is admittedly describing the Union as a ‘foe’ and has initiated a trade spat with the Union by assessing trade tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Europe, spurring retaliatory tariff measures from the EU Commission.

France, specifically, is opposed to any sort of compromise with Trump on the matter, where Trump is perceived as an opponent to the Union and its unity, whereas Germany is economically motivated to seek an end to the trade dispute under the threat of a new round of tariffs emanating from the Trump administration, and is therefore seeking to find some sort of proposal that Trump will accept and therefore back down on his protectionism against the EU, and Germany in particular.

Politico reports:

Only a week before European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker flies to Washington, France and Germany are divided over how much he should offer to U.S. President Donald Trump to end a deepening trade war, say European diplomats and officials.

But, they add, Germany has the upper hand. Berlin is shaping Juncker’s agenda, suggesting three offers that he could take to Trump on July 25 to resolve the dispute, according to people familiar with the plans.

The French are uneasy about the wisdom of such a conciliatory approach, however, and publicly accuse Trump of seeking to splinter and weaken the 28-member bloc, which he has called his “foe.”

Despite Paris’ reservations about giving away too much to the increasingly hostile U.S.

The Future of Mandatory Forced Vaccinations For All | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

from aplanetruth.info:

Less than 3% of the nation’s population has chosen to either limit and/or delay vaccinations or exercise their inherent free will choice to build their children’s, and their own, immunity systems though healthy nutrition, diet and exercise. Over the past 6 months the Federal and many State governments in the United States is radiply passing laws to completely take away a parents right to decide what is ultimately best for their children’s health and well being.

This video documentary makes the case for why these parents are choosing to wait, delay or abstain from CDC recommend, and now in 3 States or no schooling, required vaccinations. Though it has been framed as a safety issue to communities, the Pro Choice/Anti- Vaxer’s make a very compelling argument as to why they are the final author of authority to protect and promote the health and all around welfare of the children in their care.

Kenny Valenzuela of Experimental Vaccines lays out the many dangers and injuries that has been caused by vaccines, why Big Pharma and Big Business is enjoying record revenue and profits from the new legislations being enacted across the country.

CA Senator, Dr. Richard Pan, is also seen just weeks before he came out with SB277 in California to eliminate personal exemptions for children in schools, prominently attending and speaking at a Scottish-Rite Freemason Ceremony in Sacramento, as well as receiving millions of dollars from Big Pharma for his run for Senate.

We also go into the future of over 300 Genetically Modified vaccines in the pipeline being designed and developed to further inoculate all, including a vaccine for Autism, which evidence is overwhelmingly showing, is caused by the vaccines! Please visit AVVI.info
