PLAYING GOD: Human-Animal Hybrid Embryos Created in California Lab

The ethical concerns here are rather obvious.

Published

It may seem like the plot from some sci-fi thriller, but we assure you, it is very, very real.

Science, like most other fields of study, has long required its practitioners to push the envelope.  That is the nature of the beast when it comes to innovation, but we must also temper that need for progress with some logic and rationale.

Much like Jeff Goldblum’s character laments in the film Jurassic Park, just because you can do something, doesn’t mean that you should.

That is why the latest news out of California is so jarring.

For the first time, scientists have created embryos that are a mix of human and monkey cells.

The embryos, described Thursday in the journal Cell, were created in part to try to find new ways to produce organs for people who need transplants, said the international team of scientists who collaborated in the work. But the research raises a variety of concerns.

“My first question is: Why?” said Kirstin Matthews, a fellow for science and technology at Rice University’s Baker Institute. “I think the public is going to be concerned, and I am as well, that we’re just kind of pushing forward with science without having a proper conversation about what we should or should not do.”

Scientists are defending the controversial decision, however, and doing so sternly.

“This is one of the major problems in medicine — organ transplantation,” said Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, a professor in the Gene Expression Laboratory of the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences in La Jolla, Calif., and a co-author of the Cell study. “The demand for that is much higher than the supply.”

“I don’t see this type of research being ethically problematic,” said Insoo Hyun, a bioethicist at Case Western Reserve University and Harvard University. “It’s aimed at lofty humanitarian goals.”

And then, with a tacit acknowledgment of the creepy thoughts running through Americans’ minds…

“Our goal is not to generate any new organism, any monster,” Belmonte said. “And we are not doing anything like that. We are trying to understand how cells from different organisms communicate with one another.”

One ‘Armed Person’ Arrested During J6 Rally… Turns Out to be Undercover Cop

Police in riot gear surrounded and detained a man who was armed at the J6 rally on Saturday.

Police in riot gear surrounded and detained a man who was armed at the J6 rally on Saturday, but putting a fine point on the face, it turned out he was an undercover cop.

There were only a few arrests during the J6 rally. Indeed, there were thousands of police — both in riot gear and undercover — not to mention thousands of reporters, but very few “dangerous” J^ rally goers.

Not many turned out for the rally because most knew that the corrupt law enforcement services in Washington D.C. was looking to take down anyone, for anything, real or fictional. Few real J6 supporters wanted to be mistreated by a corrupt militarized police presence, so the stayed home.

In fact, President Trump even warned people not to go to this thing. Trump called the whole event a “set up.”

“On Saturday, that’s a setup,” Trump said. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”

And he was exactly right. To show what a farcical situation the whole thing was, cops in riot gear surrounded and detained a man because he looked to be armed. And “journalists” were there to lap it all up.

Reporter Ford Fischer recorded the confrontation on video:

But then it was discovered that this doofus was an undercover operative, and the riot cops blew his cover:

What a complete joke:

Major League Baseball Moves Bat Production to Red China

Major League Baseball has fired its U.S.-based bat makers and sent the contract to the Chinese.

Published

on

Major League Baseball is no longer America’s game. Apparently, it’s China’s, now that the league has fired its U.S.-based bat makers and sent the contract to the Chinese.

Bats for MLB have been made in America for the entirety of baseball’s existence… until today.

According to Yahoo News:

When Major League Baseball hosted its “Field of Dreams” game in Iowa in August, it was a celebration of small-town America. But less than 100 miles away, a small town is worrying that its local economy, that’s centered around baseball, is getting shut out. Kris Van Cleave traveled to Caledonia, Minnesota, where a factory partially owned by MLB is closing up shop and shipping jobs overseas.

So much for the “American pastime.” So much for the one game America is most famous for.

But this is where all pro sports are headed.

Soon all the Little Leaguers will be proudly swinging those bats that are stamped “Made In China.”

What an outrage.
