China ‘clone factory’ scientist eyes human replication

image

Boyalife Group and its partners are building a giant cloning factory in Tianjin, which will aim for an output of one million cloned cows a year by 2020
The Chinese scientist behind the world’s biggest cloning factory has technology advanced enough to replicate humans, he told AFP, and is only holding off for fear of the public reaction.

But cattle are only the beginning of chief executive Xu Xiaochun’s ambitions.

In the factory pipeline are also thoroughbred racehorses, as well as pet and police dogs, specialised in searching and sniffing.

Boyalife is already working with its South Korean partner Sooam and the Chinese Academy of Sciences to improve primate cloning capacity to create better test animals for disease research.

And it is a short biological step from monkeys to humans—potentially raising a host of moral and ethical controversies.

“The technology is already there,” Xu said. “If this is allowed, I don’t think there are other companies better than Boyalife that make better technology.”

The firm does not currently engage in human cloning activities, Xu said, adding that it has to be “self-restrained” because of possible adverse reaction.

But social values can change, he pointed out, citing changing views of homosexuality and suggesting that in time humans could have more choices about their own reproduction.

“Unfortunately, currently, the only way to have a child is to have it be half its mum, half its dad,” he said.

“Maybe in the future you have three choices instead of one,” he went on. “You either have fifty-fifty, or you have a choice of having the genetics 100 percent from Daddy or 100 percent from Mummy. This is only a choice.”

Xu, 44, went to university in Canada and the US, and has previously worked for US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, and in drug development.

The factory is aiming to produce “cloned” beef from breeding genetically identical super-cattle, to meet the demands of China’s booming middle class.

Presenting cloning as a safeguard of biodiversity, the Tianjin facility will house a gene bank capable of holding up to approximately five million cell samples frozen in liquid nitrogen—a catalogue of the world’s endangered species for future regeneration.

Boyalife’s South Korean partner Sooam is already working on a project to bring the woolly mammoth back from extinction by cloning cells preserved for thousands of years in the Siberian permafrost.

Sooam also serves a niche market recreating customers’ dead pet dogs, reportedly for $100,000 a time.

Sooam founder Hwang Woo-Suk was a national hero with his own postage stamp before being embroiled in controversy a decade ago after his claims to be the first in the world to clone a human embryo were discredited.

Hwang, who created Snuppy, the world’s first cloned dog, in 2005, lost his university position, had two major papers retracted, and was accused of crimes ranging from violation of bioethics laws to embezzling research funds.

Earlier this year he was quoted in South Korea’s Dong-A Ilbo newspaper saying that his firm was planning a cloning joint venture in China “because of South Korea’s bioethics law that prohibits the use of human eggs”.

“We have decided to locate the facilities in China in case we enter the phase of applying the technology to human bodies,” he was quoted as saying.

‘Weird experiments’

For now, Xu seeks to become the world’s first purveyor of “cloned” beef, breeding genetically identical super-cattle that he promises will taste like Kobe and allow butchers to “slaughter less and produce more” to meet the demands of China’s booming middle class.

Cloning differs from genetic modification, but its application to animals would enable the firm to homogenise its output.

“Everything in the supermarket looks good—it’s almost all shiny, good-looking, and uniformly shaped. For animals, we weren’t able to do that in the past. But with our cloning factory, we choose to do so now,” Xu said.

“Remember, this is a food. We want it to be uniform, very consistent, very premium quality,” he added.

There is controversy over whether cloned beef is safe for human consumption—research by the US Food and Drug Adminstration says that it is, but the European parliament has backed a ban on cloned animals and products in the food chain.

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization has yet to review the issue.

Han Lanzhi, a GMO safety specialist at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, said Boyalife’s claims about the safety, scope and timeline of their operations were alarming—and implausible.

“To get approval for the safety of cloned animals would be a very drawn-out process, so when I heard this news, I felt very surprised,” she said.

“There must be strong regulation because as a company pursuing its own interests, they could very easily do other things in the future,” she added.

Xu sought to be reassuring, telling AFP: “We want the public to see that cloning is really not that crazy, that scientists aren’t weird, dressed in lab coats, hiding behind a sealed door doing weird experiments.”

Intel Source Warns ‘War Imminent,’ US To Blame Russia For ‘First Shot,’ And ‘Syria Will Be The Game Changer’

A trusted source reached out to ANP recently, a source who has provided highly accurate information in the past, and with very close connections to the Intelligence community. The information imparted by our source warns us of plans within U.S. leadership and military that are being implemented right now as seen in headlines generated by the MSM (Washington’s propaganda arm) after this information was given to us.

The key points shared with ANP include;

1) War is imminent;
2) Will kick off in Syria when US soilders fire first upon Russian soilders…from here the US will tell our ppl the Russians fired first
3) JH15 (Jade Helm 15) is to prep for war here in the states.
4) Keep your eyes open with Syria…it will be the game changer.

The U.S. leadership, using the MSM as their water carriers, have already started implementing the propaganda portion of the upcoming war with dire warnings of the U.S. moving to “block Russia” from a “military buildup in Syria,” as reported on September 8, 2015 by the New York Times.
AFP, via Yahoo News follows the same script by describing Russia as the “enemy” in the following manner:
The aircraft have landed at the airport in Latakia on Syria’s Mediterranean coast over the past several days, US officials told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Two of the aircraft were giant Antonov-124 Condor planes and a third was a passenger flight, one of the officials said.
The Russians have installed modular housing units — enough for “hundreds” of people — at the airport, as well as portable air traffic control equipment, the official noted.

“All of this seems to be suggesting that Russia is planning to do some sort of forward air-operating hub out of this airfield,” the official said.

Washington has expressed concern following reports suggesting Moscow may be boosting military support to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and had sent a military advance team to the war-torn country.

We know from previous reports that U.S. troops have a physical presence in Syria as was reported back in May 2015, with The Daily Beast headlining with “U.S. Troops Fought ‘Hand to Hand’ in Syria Raid,” and USA Today confirmed those reports in an article titled “U.S. troops kill top ISIL commander in raid inside Syria.”
It is noteworthy that while the AFP report states “”Our concern would be that any effort to bolster the Assad regime right now would potentially be destabilizing,” Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said Tuesday,” not one MSM report regarding this conflict reminds their readers the U.S. first supplied the apparently moderate rebels of the Free Syrian Army with non-lethal aid in 2011 (including food rations and pickup trucks), but quickly began providing training, cash, and intelligence to selected Syrian rebel commanders.

Nor is the MSM informing their readers that many of those “moderate Syrian rebels” the U.S. supported and still supports, are now part of ISIS, the terror group the U.S. is using as justification for military action in Syria.

Takes a lot of double-talk, a refusal to report on the history, and the twisting of said history to push the propaganda into Americans minds, so that Russia is being blamed for destabilizing Syria.

PLAYERS POSITIONED

We now have the U.S. military and the Russians establishing their positions in Syria and elsewhere. Russia and China have created an alliance and coincidentally (or not!) recent reports show that Chinese warships entered U.S. waters off the Alaskan coast, while across the country Russian ships have supposedly been spotted in the Atlantic near “nuclear submarine areas.”
We already know that as part of Jade Helm 15, U.S. Military assets are already positioned all across the country as photos and videos have shown throughout the last months.
Other events have recently been reported add more pieces to the puzzle.
For example, on September 7, 2015 Stefan Stanford reported “Russian President Vladimir Putin has put Central Military District troops on full alert,” while their deadliest nuclear submarine heads for the Pacific Ocean.

On September 2, 2015, he reported the following as well:
With the Pentagon recently warning that 5 Chinese war ships were seen off of the coast of Alaska, we take a look at an alarming story from AINonline that tells us on very late notice from the Department of Defense, ADS-B Surveillance and TCAS operations over Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia and Florida might become ‘unreliable’ as of 1 a.m. September 2nd.
The National Airspace System has told the FAA that they need much more notice for such military exercises that we learn here will go on until October 1st and will cover up to 200 miles off of the East coast.

[Update] In response to this article I just got off the phone with another source that tells me the U.S. is planning to send more Marines to Syria, furthering positioning for the endgame result already spelled out above.

BOTTOM LINE
The world is barrelling towards World War III between nuclear powers to which there can be no winners, just millions annihilated. A look at the Global Firepower list shows the U.S. is ranked nuber 1 with Russia and China listed as number 2 and 3 respectively, meaning between them both, they have more military might combined than the U.S. has.

If there is a way to prevent what is coming, and that is a big IF, Americans must understand they are being set up, herded towards WW3 by the MSM, on behalf of government leaders, using propaganda to establish who the “good guys” are and who the “bad guys” are.
When the “event” happens in Syria and the MSM starts blaring headlines claiming Russia shot at U.S. troops, remember the warning at the top of this article because the story line has already been written, the scene is being set in the headlines of today so that when that “first shot” is fired….. they will already have established who the world should blame.
