Permanent Biological Contamination Unleashed On Gulf Of Mexico

with one comment

February 2, 2011: Michael Edward / http://blueplague.org – February 1, 2011

SYNTHETIC GENES ARE NOW CROSSING SPECIES BARRIERS

While natural viruses and bacteria respect species barriers, the storm of artificial genetics created by synthetic biology engineers – in order to eliminate the flow of crude oil and gasses in the Gulf of Mexico – are actually designed to cross species barriers. This has created new viral and bacterial pathogens never seen before. It is directly responsible for the spreading of drug and antibiotic resistant viral and bacterial outbreaks along the Gulf Coast, a pestilence that I have named The Gulf Blue Plague.

HORIZONTAL GENE TRANSFER

Genetic engineering – synthetic biology – involves designing artificial genes to deliberately cross species barriers by invading their genetic makeup. Simply explained, it improves the direct transfer of genetic material to an unrelated species. This is called Horizontal Gene Transfer (HGT), or Lateral Gene Transfer (LGT), and is usually accomplished with the conveyance of genes by infectious viruses named bacteriophages, or simply ‘phages’. LGT or HGT is any process in which an organism transfers genetic material (i.e., DNA) to another cell that is not its offspring. It has been used by genetic engineers to make Transgenic Organisms.

TRANSGENIC ORGANISMS

Engineered genetic modification creates a transgenic organism by inserting DNA into a host organism, such as bacteria, with the assistance of a virus or a plasmid. The mature host organism will then pass on the DNA which has been artificially inserted into its genome.

Transgenic DNA typically contains genetic material from bacteria, viruses and other genetic parasites. This is the cause behind diseases as well as the antibiotic resistant genes that make infectious diseases untreatable. Horizontal transfer of transgenic DNA has the potential to also create new viruses and bacteria that cause diseases and spread drug and antibiotic resistance genes among pathogens.

Genetic material released from both dead and live cells persevere in all environments. Our entire biosphere is being exposed to all kinds of new gene combinations that did not previously exist in nature and would never have come into being without synthetic gene engineering.

TRANSFERING DNA BY INFECTING VIRUSES

Bacteriophages are a class of viruses that infect bacteria. They are simply a “package” of DNA surrounded by a protein “coat”. This coating has special properties that make it stick to bacterial cell walls. Once attached, they inject their DNA into the bacteria. Viral DNA forces the invaded cell to stop its normal activity and, instead, it will reproduce millions of copies of the whole virus.

When new viruses are produced in the bacteria, a piece of bacterial DNA may become enclosed in the virus coat. The virus will then carry this bacterial DNA to other bacteria where it becomes a part of their chromosome. This is called bacterial transduction and is especially common in water.

Synthetic DNA transfer by a virus causes an uncontrolled increase of genetically engineered genes by microorganisms. These bacteria then spread over wide distances on dust particles and in the oceans. They are ingested by birds that spread them transcontinentally when they migrate. They are also spread by fish and other marine life that also migrate from ocean to ocean. In other words, this eventually causes a worldwide distribution. But the worst part of all this is that effects on the entire earth biosphere is absolutely unknown.

CELLS ADOPT ALIEN GENES

We have a catastrophic biological disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. This is because the cells of all species, including those of mankind, can and do adopt foreign genetic material from both dead and live cells. According to biology and genetics scientists, this is what we can expect as a result:

  1. New cross-species viruses that directly cause diseases.
  2. The artificial development of new bacterial diseases.
  3. The reactivation of dormant viruses present in all cells.
  4. Antibiotic resistant genes in viral and bacterial pathogens.
  5. The uncontrolled spread of new genes that have never before existed.

PERMANENT BIOLOGICAL CONTAMINATION

As I was writing this article, I received an e-mail from a news blog owner in Spain. He informed me about an important commentary made by a well know university biologist as a reply to my previous research written in The Perfect Genetic Storm. He felt the professor’s reply was extremely important and wanted me to know “we are spreading this information so there will be an end to this madness” in the Gulf of Mexico.

The following excerpts are translated from the Spanish blog Noticias de Abajo:

Biologist Máximo Sandín is the former Biology Department professor at the Independent University of Madrid where he taught on Human Evolution and Ecology. He has directly commented on the translated article The Perfect Genetic Storm – Synthetic DNA and the Gulf Blue Plague.

Dr. Sandín is the author of We are Virus and Bacteria as well as many other publications:

“I believe that some (rather many) of the activities of the “biotechnology” or “bioengineering” companies are becoming ever more dangerous each day because their practices seem to be completely behind the back of present scientific knowledge…

“Their pretensions to change “genes” voluntarily, or to modify or interfere in the natural phenomena, are based on a declining conception that does not genetically consider the ecology. These genetically modified genomes are very unstable due to the way they are obtained. For that reason, the genes are transferred to the modified or transgenic organisms that produce a permanent biological contamination in the ecosystems whose effects are unforeseeable…

“On land, communities of associated bacteria and viruses (bacteriophages or “phages”) plentifully exist in the ecosystem for the purification of the fresh water, degradation of toxic substances, waste product recycling, CO2 production, and nitrogen fixation in plants. These communities genetically exchange information by means of plasmids and viruses. The viruses control the bacterial population. For that reason, the altered transgenic genes can cross to other organisms in the ecosystem. This practice has been repeatedly denounced by prestigious and independent scientists, although the mass media does not report this…

“The populations of bacterial and viral communities in the oceans are spectacular. It has been determined that there are one million bacteria and ten million viruses per milliliter; however, for some scientists these figures are conservative…

“Their functions are of equal importance for the marine ecosystems. They are in the base of the trophic pyramid for the control of microorganism populations, in the degradation of ocean waste, in the photosynthesis and respiration of the ocean, and the CO2 interchange with the atmosphere, including the formation of clouds…

“We now have news on the methods to fight against the petroleum flow in the Gulf of Mexico. The suspicions that they have been using bacteria with “synthetic” or genetically modified genomes are very founded if we consider that the megalomaniac Craig Venter is involved…

“What is being observed is not so much that the “synthetic microbes” produce “mutations” in the natural microorganisms, because that phenomenon is more of a localized problem. The true problem is that the horizontal transference of these modified genes between marine microorganisms is taking place, and that would be a “permanent biological contamination” of the ocean where the medium and long term effects cannot be predicted; but with complete certainty this will be a serious danger for the marine ecosystem in every area. I guess I will have to hope, but if these crazy activities go unchecked, we will end up confronting a problem for which we cannot find a solution.”

As I’ve been saying for months, “Wherever the Gulf wind blows and the Gulf water flows.”

Gore Says “Global Warming” Is Causing Record Cold And Snowfalls

leave a comment »

February 2, 2011: Jim Meyers / Newsmax.com – February 2, 2011

The record-setting snow and cold afflicting much of the nation in recent weeks doesn’t seem to jibe with Al Gore’s dire warnings about global warming. But Gore has an explanation for what’s causing the wintry conditions: global warming.

The former Vice President on Monday responded to Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly’s on-air question last week: “Why has southern New York turned into the tundra?” O’Reilly then said he needed to call Gore.

“I appreciate the question,” Gore wrote on his website. “As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now and they say that increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming.”

Gore then quoted an article by Clarence Page in the Chicago Tribune in early 2010: “In fact, scientists have been warning for at least two decades that global warming could make snowstorms more severe. Snow has two simple ingredients: cold and moisture. Warmer air collects moisture like a sponge until it hits a patch of cold air. When temperatures dip below freezing, a lot of moisture creates a lot of snow.

“A rise in global temperature can create all sorts of havoc, ranging from hotter dry spells to colder winters, along with increasingly violent storms, flooding, forest fires and loss of endangered species.”

Neocons Exploit Fear Of The Muslim Brotherhood To Push For War

leave a comment »

February 2, 2011: Kurt Nimmo / Infowars.com – February 1, 2011

Former semi-ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, has told Sean Hannity the Egyptian rebellion against the authoritarian dictator Hosni Mubarak should be used as a pretext to bomb Iran.

“Do you think that the Israelis are going to have to strike — they are going to have to take action?” Sean Hannity asked Bolton on his radio program Monday. “As you pointed out, ElBaradei ran cover for the Iranians for all those years that he was with the IAEA. And, I just don’t think the Israelis have much longer to wait…they’re going to have to act in fairly short order.”

“I think that’s right,” Bolton said. “I don’t think there’s much time to act. And I think the fall of an Egyptian government committed to the peace agreement will almost certainly speed that timetable up.”

Last week Bolton said “the real alternative is not Jefferson democracy versus the Mubarak regime, but that it’s the Muslim Brotherhood versus the Mubarak regime, and that has enormous implications for the US, for Israel, and our other friends in the region.”

The corporate media – and especially the concurrent neocon media – are now portraying the Muslim Brotherhood as a scary and threatening apparition poised to implement Sharia law across the region and kill infidels.

“If the Obama administration decides to go along with the ascendancy of the Muslim Brotherhood under the guise of a ‘peoples’ coalition government, it will be pursuing yet another lethal engagement in its pursuit of approval in the Muslim world,” writes Joseph Klein.

“The Mubarak dictatorship is crumbling, the Muslim Brotherhood is warning that regimes will fall all over the Middle East and the radical left in America and internationally is cheering them on,” writes David Horowitz, the former Marxist turned neocon connected to CIA operative Richard Mellon Scaife.

Meanwhile, in Israel, apocalyptic doom is predicted for the moment after Mubarak falls. The Global Research in International Affairs Center claims that the Muslim Brotherhood has taken over most of the opposition once led by largely secular parties. “Even the most important past such organization, the Kifaya movement, has already been taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood,” Barry Rubin writes in a scary report claiming the ascendancy of the Brotherhood.

“They want an Islamist radical state, ruled by Sharia and at war with Israel and the United States,” Rubin continues. The Brotherhood and al-Qaeda are one in the same, the report argues.

The neocon propaganda outlet in Israel, The Jerusalem Post, cranks the fear-mongering up a level with dire warnings of war against the Jewish state. “A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt told the Arabic-language Iranian news network Al-Alam on Monday that he would like to see the Egyptian people prepare for war against Israel, according to the Hebrew-language business newspaper Calcalist,” writes Yaakov Lappin.

Muhammad Ghannem reportedly told Al-Alam that the Suez Canal should be closed immediately, and that the flow of gas from Egypt to Israel should cease “in order to bring about the downfall of the Mubarak regime.” He added that “the people should be prepared for war against Israel,” saying the world should understand that “the Egyptian people are prepared for anything to get rid of this regime.”

Even so-called liberals who support Israel are beating the drums. “The Brotherhood remains the only well-organized institution in Egypt other than the military. It has been underground for generations – jailed, tortured, infiltrated, but still, somehow, flourishing. Its moment may be approaching,” writes Richard Cohen in a Washington Post op-ed.

Cohen is on to something, although he probably does not know it. The Muslim Brotherhood was indeed infiltrated – and not recently, but many years ago.

As Peter Goodgame has exhaustively documented, the Muslim Brotherhood is a prized secret weapon of the globalists. Both the CIA and British intelligence penetrated the group and used it to fight against Arab nationalism, in particular early on nationalism promoted by Egypt’s Nasser.

“The CIA was following the example of British Intelligence and sought to use Islam to further its goals,” writes Goodgame. “They wanted to find a charismatic religious leader that they could promote and control and they began to cooperate with groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood. With the rise of Nasser the Brotherhood was also courted more seriously by the pro-Western Arab regimes of Saudi Arabia and Jordan. They needed all the popular support that they could muster against the rise of Nasser-inspired Arab nationalism to keep their regimes intact.”

Officially the Brotherhood was an outlawed organization, but it remained influential and active within Egypt working against the secular regime, often hand-in-hand with British Intelligence. In June of 1955 MI6 was already approaching the Brotherhood in Syria to agitate against the new government that showed strong left-wing tendencies and a desire to merge with Egypt. The Brotherhood became an even more important asset after Nasser announced the Egyptian takeover of the Suez [Canal].

Prior to the First World War, British Intelligence cultivated ties with the Brotherhood through agent Freya Stark, a British adventurer and writer. “These covert connections were used to keep track of the growing German presence in North Africa and to stay informed of the many different political movements that were springing up,” notes the Aangirfan blog. “The Muslim Brotherhood spread throughout the Muslim world and has evolved into something like a Muslim equivalent of the West’s Masonic brotherhood. It became one of the first Islamic Fundamentalist terror organizations.”

It is well documented that Israel has also supported and funded the Brotherhood through Hamas, but this inconvenient fact has been studiously ignored by the corporate media.

Israel’s support for Hamas “was a direct attempt to divide and dilute support for a strong, secular PLO by using a competing religious alternative,” a former senior CIA official told Richard Sale of UPI in 2002. The UPI obtained documents from the Israel-based Institute for Counter Terrorism that reveal how Hamas evolved from cells of the Muslim Brotherhood. Curiously, the original UPI report has found its way to the memory hole.

Israel, along with Jordan, supported a Brotherhood effort to take down Syria’s secular government in 1976. Israel supported training camps for the Muslim Brotherhood in Lebanon and Jordan near the Syrian border. Over a five year period, the Brotherhood assassinated hundreds of Alawite members of Assad’s ruling Ba’ath Party along with their relatives, Assad’s personal doctor, and a number of Soviet advisers, according to Newsweek.

Although al-Qaeda has denounced the Brotherhood’s supposed reform through nonviolence and accused the supposed terror group named after a Mujahideen database of “betraying the cause of Islam and abandoning their ‘jihad’ in favor of forming political parties and supporting modern state institutions,” the alleged number two leader of the CIA created organization, Ayman al-Zawahiri, joined the Brotherhood in Egypt as a teenager.

Osama bin Laden’s mentor, Abdullah Azzam, was connected to both the Brotherhood and the CIA. Azzam, according to Columbia University professor Barnett Rubin, was considered a prime asset because of his “close connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, Saudi intelligence, and the Muslim World League.”

Osama’s family also had connections. Mohammed Jamal Khalifa, his brother-in-law, was a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Lebanon and ran the Peshawar, Pakistan, office of the Muslim World League, where he was active in sending recruits to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

Alleged 9/11 hijacking ring leader Mohamed Atta joined the Muslim Brotherhood in 1990. “At every stage in Atta’s journey is the Muslim Brotherhood,” a former CIA officer told Seymour Hersh of the New Yorker in 2003.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a vital component of the globalist intelligence conglomerate and its long running and ongoing campaign to create and exploit Islamic terror. John Bolton’s argument about the Brotherhood and its role in the unfolding Egyptian revolution reveals a neocon strategy designed to exploit that event in order to fear-monger, insert new life in the war on manufactured terror, and once again vilify Iran.

The corporate media is all too willing to hype the Brotherhood angle and stoke the flames of Islamic paranoia used so effectively in the wake of September 11, 2001. The corporate media, after all, gets the lion’s share of its cues from the Pentagon. It serves as both a propaganda conduit and psychological operations base for the military-industrial-intelligence complex.
