Virginia NATO Base is “fully operational” and ready to support the “international order”
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul recently introduced an amendment to reaffirm that NATO cannot supersede Congress in declaring U.S. involvement in war, however it was rejected by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Did you know?
NATO is a close partner of the UN.
Is the US Operating Under NATO Command? LINK
August 14, 2022 | By Renee Parsons | sarahwestall.com |
Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff Mark Milley stated that NATO new headquarters at the NAVAL base in Norfolk, VA has “full readiness” and is now “fully operational” in support of the “international order” and in anticipation of the “Battle of the Atlantic”.
Pentagon spokesman, John Kirby, stated that “placing the U.S. Carrier Strike Force under NATO shows our commitment to the alliance.”
Question: Is the Norfolk NAVAL base now under the command of NATO? Or, maybe more likely, is it ready to be put under full NATO command at any time?

In October 2019, the U.S. Navy celebrated its 244th Birthday. Beginning as privateers hired by the colonists to attack British commerce vessels during the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress established a naval force in October, 1775. President John Adams signed the Act to formally establish the Department of the Navy in 1798.
Described as the largest naval station in the world, the Norfolk Naval Base was established in 1917 with 3,400 acres including four miles of waterfront space, eleven miles of pier and wharf space to accommodate seventy-five ships, one hundred thirty four aircraft, fourteen piers and eleven air craft hangars.

“we may not be witnessing a worldwide outbreak of monkeypox at all, but rather a huge cover-up of the consequences of administering an experimental injection to millions of people”

Official Documents suggest Monkeypox is a coverup for damage done to Immune System by COVID Vaccination resulting in Shingles, Autoimmune Blistering Disease & Herpes Infection
Do you not find it curious how in the space of 50 years, monkeypox has never really gotten off the ground outside of a couple of countries in Africa, but then within two years of the alleged emergence of Covid-19, monkeypox is suddenly in every Western nation and being hyped up by public health authorities and the mainstream media?
Even the Director General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has just overruled the World Health Organization and single-handedly declared monkeypox a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.
If you don’t find any of the above curious then you won’t want to read this because you may miss the latest episode of BBC News at 6 pm. But if you do, you may or may not be surprised to find that evidence suggests the alleged monkeypox outbreak could actually be a result of the Covid-19 vaccination programme.
Well, it has something to do with herpes, shingles, auto-immune blistering disease and the fact that Covid-19 vaccination greatly damages the natural immune system.
Here’s a map showing countries where “confirmed” cases of monkeypox have been reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) since the middle of May 2022 –

Twitter Censors Pfizer-Injured Israeli COVID Vaccine Director
“Prof. Shmuel Shapira MD MPH (Col.), who served as Director of the Israel Institute for Biological Research between 2013 and 2021, suggested that the monkeypox outbreak was connected to mRNA vaccines.
Last week, Twitter censored Prof. Shapira—who was “physically injured” after his third Pfizer vaccine—and forced him to remove a post which said: “Monkey pox cases were rare for years. During the last years a single case was documented in Israel. It is well established the mRNA vaccines affect the natural immune system. A monkey pox outbreak following massive covid vaccination: *Is not a coincidence.”
Solar geoengineering by injecting aluminum oxide aerosol into the lower stratosphere is a serious threat to global mental health
May 30, 2022 | Author: Giovanni Ghirga, Pediatrician |International Society of Doctors for the Environment (ISDE, Italy) – Presented at National Congress of ISDE Italy, San Sepolcro, AR, Italy. | thebmj | Intended for healthcare professionals | https://www.bmj.com/content/377/bmj.o1150/rr-1 |
Solar geoengineering by injecting aluminum oxide aerosol into the lower stratosphere is a serious threat to global mental health
A possible geoengineering method to mitigate the global warming aspect of climate change is the injection of aerosols into the lower stratosphere, closely mimicking the way large volcanic eruptions cool the climate. This method is called solar-radiation management (SRM) scheme or simply Solar Geoengineering (1). SRM has been suggested to be affordable and have high effectiveness compared with other geoengineering schemes that have been suggested to mitigate global warming (1). While sulphate aerosols are the most studied, it has been recently shown that aerosols with other compositions, aluminium oxide (alumina) and diamond, could be used to dramatically increase the amount of light scatter achieved on a per mass basis. Alumina particles formed after the alumina aerosol injection are more efficient scatterers and may have less severe technology-specific risks than sulfates. Thus, they are expected to be more efficient per unit mass for geoengineering applications (2).
Nevertheless, it has also been suggested that SRM has a low associated safety compared with other geoengineering schemes because of its possible effects on regional climate, stratospheric ozone, high-altitude tropospheric clouds, biological productivity (3), and global biodiversity (4). We want to add a possible severe effect on Global Mental Health that could be caused by using alumina as light scattering.
The average residence time of a particle in the lower stratosphere is approximately 1-2 years (1,3). After eventual transport into the troposphere, alumina particles undergo relatively rapid mixing processes by weather events, turbulence, and cloudscale overturning. They are mostly removed from the atmosphere by dry deposition, sedimentation, or scavenging by clouds, finally polluting the environment (1).
Aluminium has often been regarded as not posing a significant health hazard if the human body burden of aluminium has increased. Nevertheless, epidemiological studies suggest that aluminium may not be as innocuous as was previously thought and that aluminium may actively promote the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. This condition is the most common form of dementia and may contribute to 60 –70 % of cases. In 2015, dementia affected 47 million people worldwide (or roughly 5% of the world’s elderly population), a figure predicted to increase to 75 million in 2030 and 132 million by 2050. Recent reviews estimate that each year nearly 9.9 million people develop dementia globally; this figure translates into one new case every three seconds (5). Even prolonged exposure to low levels of aluminium leads to changes associated with brain ageing and neurodegeneration (6).
Furthermore, aluminium has been included among 200 neurotoxic chemicals that silently erode intelligence, disrupt behaviours, truncate future achievements, and damage societies, perhaps most seriously in developing countries. The latter is called the “Silent Pandemic of Neurodevelopmental Toxicity in Children” (7,8). Recently, the aluminium content of brain tissue in autism spectrum disorder was found to be consistently high (9), and the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder is increasing, last CDC estimated prevalence is 1 in 44 children (10).
Worldwide land precipitation of aluminium following aerosol spraying into the lower stratosphere would increase human body exposure and seriously threaten Global Mental Health.

10,000% Increase in Cancers Following COVID-19 Vaccines as Doctors and Scientists Worldwide Sound the Alarm
August 2, 2022 | by Brian Shilhavy Editor, Health Impact News |
Rates of cancer have exploded following the COVID-19 mass vaccination programs, with doctors and scientists all over the world now sounding the alarm.
Just today a reader contacted us with the following tragic story:
Subject: Cancer after Pfizer vaccine
My husband prior to the vaccine was fit and healthy, strong, active. We both had the vaccination on 12.11.2021. about 10 hours kater we spitted first swollen node in his left armpit. Doctors ignored the symptom. Then second node, third… With 6 swollen nodes he was diagnosed with Mantle cell lymphoma. He’s during very aggressive chemotherapy called Nordic regime. He’s only 36 in May, so he was 35 when it all has started. MCL affects people after 60 usually.
Before the vaccination our children brought from school many different viruses, from common flu, tummy bug, chicken pox, ear infections to covid.
My husband was totally fine that time. His immune system worked brilliantly during September and October when me and our daughters suffered from mentioned diseases. He was working and taking care of us at that time. If he would have MCL then he wouldn’t be able to fight all these viruses. Everything has changed within the hours from the first dose of Pfizer.
At first my husband was ignored by GP as he claimed it was typical side effect which should disappear. When more nodes started swilling gp still claimed we should wait yet in January my husband was advised not to have second dose of the vaccination due to the side effects.
In March I requested blood test to check whether it was cancer. Results returned completely fine. I immediately booked next blood test. Also returned completely fine. So without hesitation I booked appointment with go but this time I asked for different gp. During this appointment my husband was referred for ultrasound scan. From there to cancer clinic. 3 days later biopsy took place. Couple if days later we learnt the diagnosis mantle cell lymphoma.
At this stage we were told it has nothing to do with the vaccination, yet for months we were expected to wait for side effects to disappear.
Also, if the cancer is not in connection to vaccinate then how come my husband survived the 8 waves if different diseases starting from September ? In August we spent holidays in Scotland. Lots of walking and driving. My husband was in a very good shape.
Let me say it again, prior to the vaccination my husband was strong, fit, active and healthy.
Our life as a family has been literally ruined.
We cannot go anywhere, we can’t work, my husband us to weak, I have to care for him now and children. We are facing financial difficulties heading to a place where we won’t be able to cover winter bills.
MCL is incurable. Only treatable.
If we are lucky, we may be back to temporary normality by March/April 2023. MCL comes back. Noone knows when. Second time it hits stronger…
We can’t take girls for holidays, we can’t mix with other people as my husband’s immune system is compromised. I am on standby all the time as I may need to take him to hospital in emergency like it happened already. Most of days we travel to hospital anyway. Sometimes even twice a day.
I have never returned to myself after COVID and vaccination. Before I was very active and fit. Now Im not even at 50% of what I used to be.
Our children will never be vaccinated!
I did a search in the U.S. government Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) to see how many cases of the most common cancers had been reported following COVID-19 vaccines, and it returned a result of 837 cases of cancer, including 88 deaths, 66 permanent disabilities, and 104 life threatening events. (Source.)
And this not an exhaustive list, as I tried to include ALL cancers listed in VAERS, but the database could not handle the query.
I listed the cases by age, and of the 837 cases, 375 of them had no recorded age, although often the age can be found in the description.
So I put those 375 cases on the first page of the results, and starting on the second page you can see how young some of these cancer patients are following COVID-19 vaccines. (Source.)
It begins with a 12-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy, followed by many young adults in their 20s.
Using the exact same search terms for cancer, I then searched ALL FDA-approved vaccines for the previous 30 yearsand found only 140 cases of cancer reported. (Source.)
That result is for 360 months (30 years), whereas the 837 cases following the experimental COVID-19 vaccines were reported in just 20 months, since the roll out of the COVID-19 shots beginning in December of 2020.
That is an increase of 10,661.4%!
A pathologist who lives in Sweden was just interviewed recently about the increasing rates of cancer she is seeing in her patients following the COVID-19 vaccines.
Her name is Dr. Ute Krueger, and the video is found on the Doctors For Covid Ethics Rumble Channel.
This is an amazing interview! Dr. Krueger is highly credentialed in her field, and yet few of her colleagues are willing to follow where the evidence leads, even though everyone is seeing a huge surge in cancer cases, and her reports to the Swedish Drug Administration have not been addressed. She states:
I studied medicine because I wanted to help people.
But now it feels like I am watching people being killed, and there’s little I can do.
The Exposé has also just published an excellent review of some of the scientific literature showing how the spike proteins are interfering with “the DNA repair mechanism in lymphocytes.”
by Joel Smalley; Professional Data Analyst
The homologous recombination DNA repair pathway is one of the mechanisms that the body uses to stop your cells turning cancerous in response to environmental stress.
One of the most important components of this pathway is Tumor protein P53 (p53), the “guardian of the genome”. It protects our cells from cellular damage. Under cellular stress, p53 jumps into action, regulating gene expression to control DNA repair, cell division and cell death. It is the most commonly mutated gene in cancer.
In October 2021, two revered scientists, called Jiang and Mei, had a paper published, after peer review, in MDPI, showing that the SARS-Cov-2 spike protein obliterated the DNA repair mechanism in lymphocytes.
The viral spike protein was so toxic to this pathway that it knocked 90% of it out. If the whole spike protein got into the nucleus (in the ovaries), and enough of it was produced and hung around long enough before the body was able to get rid of it all, it would cause cancer. Fortunately, in the case of naturally infection, this is unlikely to occur.
Unfortunately, the experimental mRNA toxshot induces spike protein to be produced (the full length spike exactly matching – amino acid for amino acid – the full length of the viral spike protein¹) in and around the cell nucleus² and is produced for at least 60 days and almost certainly longer³.
“Fact checkers” said the viral spike protein doesn’t get in the nucleus despite the expert scientists showing that it absolutely does.
Public health authorities and regulators said the vaccinal spike protein doesn’t get in the nucleus despite the mRNA manufacturers submitting pictures of it doing so to them as part of their emergency use application.
OK, so it gets into the nucleus but the official narrative says it doesn’t stay in the body for more than a few hours. But, a huge study by one of the most respected molecular biology groups in the world at Stanford university⁴ showed that the mRNA (producing the vaccinal spike antigen) was still present and active in the body after 60 days.
Jiang and Mei, quite logically and reasonably, cautioned that the mRNA spike protein would likely have the same effect as the viral spike protein on p53 and therefore cause cancer.
Two months after this revelation was highlighted by my friend, Jikky the Mouse, the Jiang and Mei paper was retracted due to spurious “expressions of concern” (EOC) about the methods of the study despite them being standard practice.
Moreover, the authors of the EOC were Eric Freed, the head of the US National Institute of Health (NIH) that funded Moderna, the patent holder of the COVID mRNA toxshot⁵ and Oliver Shildgen, the actual editor of the journal that originally accepted the paper! And neither of them declared the conflicts of interest.
Well, despite the retraction, the spike protein circulating in large quantities, in the direct vicinity of the cell nucleus, for elongated periods of time, still has the potential to induce cancer in those cells (ovary, pancreas, breast, prostate, lymph nodes). These cancers can take years to develop and so it’s possible that we don’t see much of a safety signal for 5 or 10 years.

Transcript of Evidence / Vaxx Analysis By Prof. Dr. Antonietta Gatti – Nano-pathologist
In case you missed Day 4 of the CoVid Grand Jury Trials, Dr. Antonietta Gatti’s testimony below provides verification of the chemical composition and contamination of 42 standard “vaccines”. She discusses the nanotechnological content of the mRNA products and concludes that the direct nano-bio-interaction of nano particles with DNA is very dangerous. Dr. Gatti states, “I don’t see the possibility for the body to counter-act against these stimuli.”
July 30, 2022 | Zero Geoengineering | Who is involved in intentionally polluting our skies and interfering with Earth’s natural weather and climate? It’s essential to know if ongoing unregulated interventions are actually causing the environmental catastrophe and destruction that we are witnessing worldwide.
When analyzing environmental problems, it’s crucial to scrutinize the role of the last 80+ years of unregulated cloud-seeding, weather modification and atmospheric testing in largely contributing to, or creating current weather and climate extremes.
The US government, many alphabet agencies, universities, private individuals, the UN WMO and governments aroundthe world are engaged in various atmospheric “research” programs that have remained outside of the context of public oversight and legitimate Constitutional governance for decades.
NOTE: One of the original purposes of weather modification was weaponry. Cloud-seeding and other extremely hazardous atmospheric activities, presently exclude public consent mechanisms and legitimate regulatory constraints, therefore, could be defined as environmental warfare and must be banned.

Former Google CEO Issues Warning: Negotiations Urgently Needed To Address AI Dangers
Eric Schmidt discusses some of the major challenges of Artificial Intelligence( AI ), from the lack of understanding and naiveté about the potential impact of AI twenty years ago, to the need for governments and other institutions to put more pressure on tech now, to get the technology consistent with our values (as a free society).
Schmidt urges negotiations to solve national security issues surrounding AI and to prevent a conundrum resulting from lack of preparedness and diplomacy.
The participants in this forum are many of the same technocratic entities and organizations linked with the political ruling class, big tech, private corporations, the military-industrial- intelligence-pharmaceutical-complex, with the Rockefeller Foundation as a partner.

BREAKING NEWS: The craziest crazies have somehow escaped the asylum and installed themselves in high positions of power. Insane, they are coming up with one bad idea after another and barking orders at us, mad shine in their eyes and saliva coming out of their mouths. They are crazy — and in charge of institutions, schools, newspapers and armies.
They are running around with their high-tech pistols filled with high-tech poisons and their little sadistic CRISPR scissors. They are crazy — yes, they are crazy — and they are killing us slowly, and sometimes not so slowly. Welcome to the future where toxicity is health and the old crazy is the new normal. We are not crazy — they are crazy — and they have been from the beginning. And in 2020, they stopped pretending. What now?
You may think that you have seen it all but here is a great idea. Take some insects, infect them with a genetically modified virus designed to genetically edit mature plants in real time, and release them. Release them into wild and repeat, “it’s safe and effective.”
Sweet idea, right? Well, DARPA thought so, and so in 2016, they started a project called “Insect Allies” that is designed to do that. (This is a different project from Oxitec’s controversial release of GM mosquitos.) DARPA’s official story is that in the name of national security, a good way to protect the American crops from potential threats is to genetically modify them using GM viruses as genetic modifiers and insects as flying syringes. And that they just need to test it!
In a 2016 release titled, “DARPA Enlists Insects to Protect Agricultural Food Supply,” the agency stated:
“A new DARPA program is poised to provide an alternative to traditional agricultural threat response, using targeted gene therapy to protect mature plants within a single growing season.
DARPA proposes to leverage a natural and very efficient two-step delivery system to transfer modified genes to plants: insect vectors and the plant viruses they transmit. In the process, DARPA aims to transform certain insect pests into ‘Insect Allies,’ the name of the new effort.”
“‘Insect Allies’ three technical areas — trait design, insect vector optimization, and selective gene therapy in mature plants — layer together to support the goal of rapidly transforming mature plants to protect against natural or intentional agricultural disruption without the need for extensive infrastructure. The foundational knowledge and generalizable tools developed under the program could also support future agricultural innovation.”
Some suspicious peasants may foolishly wonder: What will happen in the short term and in the long term to the people who eat those plants, to the people and animals possibly bitten by those insects, to the wild insects who mate with the infected insects, and to all other life in the area and beyond that may get impacted? What ridiculous nonsense. Here is the answer, peasant: No one knows — and importantly, no one cares. Any more questions?
The first Insect Allies funded paper, titled, “Multiplexed heritable gene editing using RNA viruses and mobile single guide RNAs,” was published in 2020. Please note the word “heritable” in the headline. The paper stated:
“Mutant progeny are recovered in the next generation at frequencies ranging from 65 to 100%; up to 30% of progeny derived from plants infected with a virus expressing three sgRNAs have mutations in all three targeted loci.”
DARPA never disclosed if they tested this program outside of greenhouses.
Actually, it turned out that a few scientists care — and at least during the pre-COVID era, they have objected.
Here is a short 2019 educational animation made by the German Max Planck Society (formerly the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History). Their main objection is the potential weaponization of the technology, they don’t mind the gene editing in principle.
But our standards for health and dignity are so low that this objection is better than no objection, and even this limited kind of objection and questioning DARPA takes some courage (even though it’s unknown if they would have objected in 2020).
And here is what Vice (!!) had to say in 2018 about the outcry from scientists:
“In the editorial, published on Thursday in Science Magazine, scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology and the University of Freiburg in Germany, and France’s Université de Montpellier, requested more transparency and opportunities for public discussion regarding the project and its implications.
‘Easy simplifications could be used to generate a new class of biological weapons,’ a press release reads, ‘weapons that would be extremely transmissible to susceptible crop species due to insect dispersion as the means of delivery.’”
What did DARPA say?
“In an email to Motherboard, a DARPA spokesperson rebutted the thesis of the Science Magazine piece and denied any intent to deploy technology developed through Insect Allies in an offensive setting.
‘We created Insect Allies specifically to develop technology that can deliver positive, protective traits to plants to help them survive unanticipated and/or fast-moving agricultural threats,’ the spokesperson wrote. ‘We see it as a critical addition to the national security toolkit, part of a layered strategy to preserve the security of the food supply.’”
“The Insect Allies program is a collaboration between the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Environmental Protection Agency, US Army, and other agencies. According to a DARPA slide presentation, the goal of Insect Allies is to “stably transform multiple mature crop plants in a complex, multi-species plant and insect community with enhanced trait(s) of agricultural interest” by mid-2021.”
Newsweek covered it, too. In a 2018 article, they said that “the U.S. government’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has been accused of trying to create a new class of biological weapons that would be delivered via virus-infected insects.”
“Scientists with DARPA are looking at introducing genetically modified viruses that can edit chromosomes directly in fields — these are known as horizontal environmental genetic alteration agents (HEGAAs). The DARPA program is using the principles of HEGAAs but, unlike traditional methods of dispersal — like spraying fields with them — it wants to spread them through insects.”
The researchers raising the alarm asked specifically why, for agricultural use, it was so important to use insects as gene modification vectors, given that spraying was available. In response to Newsweek at the time, DARPA denied all allegations of military use and reiterated that the project’s aim was to protect American crops. In 2022, another paper was published where researchers expressed their concerns:
“The hazard and exposure potential of an HEGAA approach can vary greatly depending on the viruses, vector insects, target plant species, and genetic modifications selected and their effects. However, at the current stage of development, the most critical aspect is the compromised reliability of the HEGAA approach, owing mainly to its complex design with three different species …
They are a cause for concern because of the numerous effects that can increase the potential for hazard and exposure. Combined with the current inadequacy of corrective measures, it is clear that there is an urgent need for early analysis of whether HEGAA approaches can be inherently contained and controlled by their specific technology design.”
What are HEGAAs? According to Wikipedia, the term “genetic alteration agent” first appears in 2016 in relation to this project, in a “work plan by DARPA describing a tender for contracts to develop genetically modified plant viruses for an approach involving their dispersion into the environment. The prefixing of ‘horizontal environmental’ to the former to generate the acronym HEGAA was first used in the [aforementioned] 2018 scientific publication.”
“Agents such as pathogens, symbionts or synthetic protein assemblages that can be acquired through horizontal transmission in the environment can potentially be engineered to become HEGAAs. This would be achieved using biotechnology methods to confer to them the capacity to alter nucleotides in the chromosomes of infected individuals through sequence-specific editing systems like CRISPR, ZFNs or TALENs.
No known infectious agent naturally has the capacity to gene edit eukaryotes in a manner that can be flexibly targeted to specific sequences (distinct from substantially random natural processes like retroviral integration).”
“By definition, HEGAA induced gene editing events are intended to occur outside of contained facilities such as laboratories or hospitals.
While genetically modified viruses with CRISPR editing have been successfully used as research tools in laboratories or for gene therapy in clinical settings, all gene editing events are intended to physically occur within contained facilities. By contrast, HEGAAs for their intended mode of action relies on inducing gene editing events that occur largely or exclusively in the environment.”
There are two types of HEGAAs: somatic and germline. Somatic HEGAAs are not inheritable, while germline ones “impact somatic cells and also cell lineages from which germline cells can be ultimately generated (e.g. sperm, oocytes, pollen, ovules, zygotes or seeds).”
When it comes to the “Insect Allies” project, it’s a gray area. The original assumption was that “Insect Allies” involved somatic HEGAAs but the aforementioned 2020 paper shows that the genetic changes in plants were heritable. Here is more detail:
All in all, this informational Max Planck Society affiliated website, whose purpose is “to contribute towards fostering an informed and public debate about this type of technology,” is one of the best sources of information on HEGAAs and the “Insect Allies” project. Incidentally, this particular website covers self-spreading vaccines as well. Here is a little video promo of the Euroscience Open Forum 2020:
And here it the actual 2020 panel (some of it is already outdated but very educational):
One of the panelists above mentions “Project Coast” is South Africa — and while it is not directly related to “Insect Allies,” it kind of is.
“Project Coast” was a toxin and bioweapon development project that took place in South Africa during the apartheid era. As a part of that project, scientists developed covert assassination tools and methods of covert sterilization, intended against the black population of South Africa. A warning? No really, a warning?
Here is more from the MPS-affiliated informational website:
“Even as the halfway point of the Insect Allies program approaches, DARPA has chosen not to publicly describe in its response to our Science article what is the basis of their having concluded that a developmental pathway exists that circumvents the early proliferation of biological weapons (described by the black development path in the accompanying image).
This is in addition to explaining in detail why their developmental plan is easier to develop than alternative paths (described by the red paths). As our Science article makes clear, this is central to justifying the wisdom of embarking on the development of HEGAAs, and many other types of GM viruses.
Over the next five years, only a minority of anticipated CRISPR-inspired innovations will involve intentional environmental releases (see recent NAS report). HEGAAs, and some other GM viruses, have the property of an early-stage biological weapons proliferation risk that is not shared with most other proposed techniques (including avant-garde ones like gene drive).
Choosing not to clearly address these obvious issues of global concern, as detailed in the Science article, makes their current model of develop first and explain later an especially unwise path, particularly for this insect-delivered program, that in many ways appears to be designed to get carried away.”
To provide a backdrop for the “Insect Allies” project, here is a brief look at the DARPA “Living Foundries” bioengineering program, launched in 2010.
DARPA’s Living Foundries program aims to “enable adaptable, scalable, and on-demand production of critical, high-value molecules by programming the fundamental metabolic processes of biological systems to generate a vast number of complex molecules.”
In order to orient ourselves in this attempted new normal, we need to understand the mindset. Please note the use of term “engineer” all throughout this benevolent-sounding presentation:
DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office was founded in 2014. Here is an informational video on, in their own words, “DARPA’s way of thinking about biological technology to defend the homeland.”
According to DARPA’s website:
“DARPA has enjoyed a strong relationship with Silicon Valley since the early 1960s, working with innovators to lay the groundwork for new industries built around Agency investments in semiconductors, networking, artificial intelligence, user interfaces, programming, materials, microsystems, and more.
[We knew that!!!] Biotech is now emerging as a breakthrough opportunity space and it represents an area that is ripe for fresh collaboration among DARPA, the nation’s top researchers, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs.”
Here are some of the listed topic of interests:
Is it me, or is it that the crazies are running the asylum?
If you think that you have now seen it all, well, you haven’t. Here is a video of scientists in Singapore torturing live insects and turning them into cyborgs. Horrifying.
And here is, you guessed it, DARPA:
“Through a DARPA-funded program, scientists at the University of California invented a tiny rig that connects to an insect’s brain and flight muscles. Once implanted, the device takes over the insect’s body, turning it into a remote control cyborg capable of receiving flight commands wirelessly from a nearby laptop.”
It’s all good and fun (not really, more like a horror movie), and we could close our eyes — but will it be fun if the emboldened crazies try to remote-control your children?
