Something’s Brewing: #38

Here we go again! The elite owned and operated stooges are once again pandering the eugenics-inspired myth (bald-faced lie) that the world is “overpopulated,” thus giving their elite bosses the insane rationale needed for the systematic EXTERMINATION of 6.5 billion of the world’s “not fit for life” peoples:

UN Hunger Relief Group Pushes For New Genetic Engineering Techniques

By Heather Callaghan

The UN’s World Food Program, funded by world governments, NGOs and corporations like Yum! Brands and Cargill, finds that there’s just too much hunger in the world, so no one should protest a novel form of genetic engineering that involves blipping out genes which in effect can modify plant, animal and human genomes.

That’s right – just like in the last five decades WFP has been around to receive billions for aid, there’s a crisis of hunger and overpopulation that requires urgent action – no time for testing. This time it is genome sequence alteration in order to…feed the hungry? They know it is dangerous but they want the rest of the globe to accept their experimentation of it on the world’s ecology and humanity.

People do not stop and think much about the contradictory nature of a UN relief group’s open repulsion toward population and their insistence on helping people (that they don’t want) – even though the countries they help tend to further devolve into destabilization, displacement, and impoverishment. But I digress…

WFP has dispensed an urgent press release in order to promote a heretofore unused form of genetic engineering. They cite vague fears of unprecedented population growth, increasing conflict and displacement, natural calamities, emergence of major epidemics that will compound future fears of “complexities of global food security.” They mention “recent natural disasters in food-exporting Asian and African countries” and even throw the California drought in for good measure.

To buttress their headline of Can gene editing provide a solution to global hunger? they actually say:

In the face of these facts, any technique that can improve food production would be a welcome development. To counteract the coming problem, it is imperative to try novel and daring solutions across the agricultural food chain, including the gene modification of crops.

And then as an afterthought, mention a necessary “regulatory framework” – still waiting on that myself.

But “novel and daring” is more like it…

How does gene editing work?

Conventionally, the production of genetically modified organisms involves inserting desired foreign genes into the genome of a plant or animal. But a different technique known as gene editing modifies plant, as well as animal and human, genomes without the introduction of foreign genetic materials.

Gene editing uses biological catalysts called transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) that can be engineered to bind to any DNA sequence. Scientists can introduce these enzymes into living cells where they cut out unwanted pieces of DNA, in effect editing the genome. This technique, known as TALEN-mediated genome engineering, is also referred to as Genome Editing with Engineered Nucleases.

Don’t want some pesky form of DNA? Just cut it out and edit the entire genome…no worries, there. That’ll feed the world, right? Isn’t that what we were told in the 1990s when it was equally urgent to accept plant injections of foreign DNA through GMOs? Did it help yet?

But how novel can it be when regulatory agencies continue to usher its use?

Genome editing is not a new idea. It has been used to create gene edits in human stem cells as well as in worms, fish, mice and cattle with varying degrees of success. In the laboratory, TALENs have also been used to successfully correct the genetic error underlying diseases such as sickle cell anemia.

In crop science, gene editing has been used to make Cellectis’s less sugary potato, as well as a soybean containing high levels of omega-3. The first commercial application of this technology in a plant for human consumption was approved this spring, when the US company Cibus announced an edited version of canola. The new canola plant is designed to grow well even when farmers apply particular herbicides that are used to control glyphosate-resistant weeds. Now there is talk of using this technique to manipulate photosynthesis to produce more food. Researchers at the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines have engineered rice plants to extract energy from sunlight far more efficiently than they do now.

On a side note, the omega-3 soybean oil was not what it was cracked up to be and Filipinos did not want the golden rice fields. The press release lauded the newly approved GE potatoes, but as GMO-expert Jeffrey Smith pointed out, there is legitimate concern for hundreds of human genes simply being turned off – and no one knows the long-term consequences… (emphasis added)

  1. I guess we should get involved more, but the vast majority of the employed are too busy working, feeding kids, paying for over-priced homes, amid a world of lowering incomes, and fewer real secure places of employment, and those who aren’t employed, are too busy trying to stay alive, and grab a toe-hold on this topsy turvy world.

  2. I thought about you when I selected that image. I thought, well we might all fit in NZ, but who would want to spend five seconds there;-)

    On this subject, I am for human beings being responsible with the planet and each other. And so issues of population/food supply and environment are a mixed bag for me: I will never be against anything that helps humanity or the planet, but I smell a rat in much of what is put out there these days as “the scientific fact.” I have been fooled too many times by “the experts,” so I am not quite as easily convinced anymore.

  3. I agree, and I am one struggling as well (on a fixed income). This was about the NEA, and so I didn’t go into this issue. I understand that as everything stands now, not all parents are in the position to home school their children.

    I’m not trying to bombard you, so I’ll make this as short as possible. If we the people could ever get back to small self-governing/sustaining communities, then the education of the children could be shared, in the community, by people who personally know each other and thus will know what and how their children are being taught.

    This is a long range goal, and I need to mention that from here forward. But there are working parents I know who have changed their situation by renting and doing with less, so they could take control and home school their children.

    As I wrote, there are homeschooling organizations in most cities that will help parents in this situation. Homeschooling is a nationwide movement.

    But I do understand that as of now, it will not work for everyone.

    Thanks!
