Complaints re NZ’s Police Raids – they’re setting citizen against citizen … when does “vigilant” become “vindictive”?

Gun owners upset by ‘heavy-handed’ police raids complain to IPCA:

“These visits are carried out as a result of police receiving information about concerning behaviour. Many of these are from members of the public who are being vigilant as we have asked them to be and have rightly passed their concerns on to police.”

Also in another news item:

“Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on Thursday two more groups of semi-automatic guns would be classified as military-style semi-automatic firearms following Christchurch’s terror attacks.

  • Semi-automatic firearm that can be used in combination with detachable magazine (other than one designed to hold 0.22-inch or smaller rimfire cartridges), and capable of holding more than five cartridges
  • Semi-automatic shotgun capable of being used in combination with a detachable magazine that can hold more than five cartridges”

CRISPR Gene Editing Can Trigger Cancer, Two Studies Warn

Story at-a-glance

  • CRISPR-Cas9, a form of “molecular scissors,” allows for very precise DNA editing, i.e., the removal, addition or altering of sections of a DNA sequence
  • While CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing is more precise in that you can target a specific area of the genome, two recent studies warn the gene editing process can trigger cancer
  • When you cut the two double helix strands of the DNA, the injury triggers the cell to activate a gene called p53 — a “biochemical first-aid kit” that either mends the DNA break or signals the cell to self-destruct; so, either the genome edit is mended or the cell dies
  • In instances where the cell survives and accepts the edit, it does so because it has dysfunctional p53, and p53 dysfunction has been shown to significantly increase your risk of cancer
  • CRISPR stock dropped between 5 and 13 percent within days of the findings’ publication

The discovery of the gene editing method known as CRISPR1 eventually led to a novel gene editing tool called CRISPR-Cas9,2 a form of molecular scissors that allows for far more accurate DNA editing for the removal, addition or altering of sections of a DNA sequence. A layman’s explanation of the technology is presented in the video above.

CRISPR is the acronym for clustered regularly interspaced short palindrome repeat, and its function was initially discovered in 1993 by Spanish researcher Francisco Mojica.3 Mojica hypothesized CRISPR is an adaptive immune system, which has since been confirmed. Two decades later, in 2013, the technology known as CRISPR-Cas9 was successfully used to edit the genome in eukaryotic cells for the first time, demonstrating targeted genome cleavage could be achieved in mouse and human cells.

As reported by Nature4 in 2016, “Researchers use CRISPR-Cas9 to make precise changes to genomes that remove or edit a faulty gene. It has worked on nearly every creature on which they have tested it, including human embryos.” In the wake of these discoveries, a number of CRISPR-based companies have sprung to life with the hopes of furthering gene editing in everything from food and medicine5 to eventually producing “designer babies” that have had unwanted genetic traits edited out.

However, while CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing is more precise in that you can target a specific area of the genome, two recent studies call for a rethink, as the process of gene editing can trigger cancer.6,7 As noted by STAT News8 these findings could be “a potential game-changer for the companies developing CRISPR-based therapies.”

Evil Google pushing “final solution” to eradicate independent news from the web… FOREVER

Love this site. Last video I watched of Mike Adams speaking, he said he is targeted, not surprisingly. He continually & relentlessly exposes the lies of the ‘big boys’. They want to tell us how to think. We might think too hard by ourselves & figure out what they are up to.

(Natural News) In order to salvage the failing mainstream media and stop the public from getting news elsewhere, advertising and search engine behemoth Google plans to invest $300 million into a new algorithm that, for all intents and purposes, threatens to permanently destroy the independent news industry.

Known as the “Google News Initiative,” the program will redirect advertising dollars back to mainstream publishers and away from many up-and-coming news outlets that have broken free from the Wall Street propaganda machine. Google says it will begin to work with publishers to “elevate accuracy, quality content and stem the flow of misinformation and disinformation” – which is just code speak for censorship.

If Google gets its way – and what’s to stop the company at this point? – then you can say goodbye to websites like Natural News that probably won’t make the “cut” in terms of meeting Google’s “truth” standards. Google will quickly become the sole decider in what constitutes “quality journalism,” which it will prop to the top of the search engine list, while everything else will be de-prioritized.

In a statement, Google explained that it plans to work with the “news industry” to combat “fake news” and “build a stronger future for journalism.” And the company is teaming up with legacy names like The Washington Post, The New York Times, Financial Times, and media mogul Gannett Company, Inc. to make that happen.

“The initiative will include a new lab to analyze and parse out what is deemed ‘mis- and disinformation during elections and breaking news moments;’ a fact-checking partnership with Stanford University and corporate media non-profit groups like the Local Media Association and the Poynter Institute; and a new service meant to expedite reader subscriptions to pay-gated news websites, among other new projects,” explains Mint Press News writer Elliott Gabriel about the upcoming changes.
