China says doctor behind gene-edited babies acted on his own

BEIJING (AP) — Chinese investigators have determined that the doctor behind the reported birth of two babies whose genes had been edited in hopes of making them resistant to the AIDS virus acted on his own and will be punished for any violations of the law, a state media report said Monday.

Investigators in the southern province of Guangdong determined Dr. He Jiankui organized and handled funding for the experiment without outside assistance in violation of national guidelines, the Xinhua News Agency said.

Along with the birth of the twins, Lulu and Nana, another embryo yet to be born reportedly resulted from He’s experiment, while five others did not result in fertilization. All three will remain under medical observation with regular visits supervised by government health departments, Xinhua said.

It didn’t say which laws He might have violated but said he had fabricated an ethical review by others.

“This behavior seriously violates ethics and the integrity of scientific research, is in serious violation of relevant national regulations and creates a pernicious influence at home and abroad,” the report said.

Then little-known, He attended an elite meeting in Berkeley, California, in 2017 where scientists and ethicists were discussing a technology that had shaken the field to its core — an emerging tool for “editing” genes, the strings of DNA that form the blueprint of life.

He embraced the tool, called CRISPR, and last year rocked an international conference with the claim that he had helped make the world’s first gene-edited babies , despite a clear scientific consensus that making genetic changes that could be passed to future generations should not be attempted at this point.

China called an immediate halt to He’s experiments following his announcement.

Gene editing for reproductive purposes is effectively banned in the U.S. and most of Europe. In China, ministerial guidelines prohibit embryo research that “violates ethical or moral principles.”

The chief of the World Health Organization said last year his agency is assembling experts to consider the health impact of gene editing.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said gene editing “cannot be just done without clear guidelines” and experts should “start from a clean sheet and check everything.”

“We have a big part of our population who say, ‘Don’t touch,’” Tedros told reporters. “We have to be very, very careful, and the working group will do that.”

Alleged Philadelphia shooter Maurice Hill attended radical Wahhabi Islam mosque: report

Alleged Philadelphia shooter Maurice Hill attended radical Wahhabi Islam mosque report

Wahhabism, the anti-American fundamentalist Islamic sect that drives the religious culture in Saudi Arabia, has as one of its stated goals to spread their beliefs around the world through any means necessary. Mosques promoting their radical ideology have been popping up across America over the last few years, including in Philadelphia. Alleged cop-shooter Maurice Hill attended one of them.

According to Clarion Project:

The mosque, called Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar, is known for preaching the Islamist ideology promoted by Saudi Arabia referred to as “Wahhabism.”

Clarion Intelligence Network has been aware through its sources that the area where the shootings took place is known for trafficking in guns, drugs and counterfeit items. This criminal market has a strong Islamist element that includes extremist gangs.

Hill’s older sister said he “occasionally attended” an unnamed mosque, confirming initial reports from our sources that Hill is a Muslim. The sources do not yet have first-hand evidence of the shooter being personally involved in Islamist extremism.

Clarion Intel’s sources report that Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar is a Salafi mosque which follows the theocratic teachings of Saudi Arabia’s top Wahhabist scholars.

At this point, there is no indication that Hill’s shooting of police officers was motivated by Islamism or anything other than a desire to resist arrest.

Today, a march was scheduled to “Free Maurice Hill” by Black Community Control of Police, a group adamantly opposed to law enforcement. There are no indications the group is aligned with Masjid Ahlil Hadeeth Wal Athar, but it is a common practice among radical Islamic groups to disguise their associations and operate apparently independent from one another.

The details surrounding the gunfight seem to indicate it was not prompted by Wahhabism as Hill was apparently approached as a result of a separate warrant enforced against a neighbor. But the clear disregard for police authority and the willingness to attempt to murder multiple law enforcement officers indicates an ideology that is prepared to kill and die. Was this ideology sparked at the radical mosque Hill attended?

As expected, the appetite of legacy media to cover Maurice Hill died down quickly despite the rampant calls for gun control. His story has too many things that go against the progressive media’s narrative.

Any connections to Islam in situations like these are automatically dismissed as Islamophobia. But it’s highly unlikely Maurice Hill’s alleged actions were completely disparate from the radical teachings of the mosque he attended.

Conservatives, don’t let #EpsteinSuicide become our #MuellerReport

Conservatives dont let EpsteinSuicide become our MuellerReport

Jeffrey Epstein probably didn’t commit suicide. The circumstances behind his death are too bizarre, from sleeping guards and malfunctioning cameras to broken neck bones and odd bed sheet strangulation techniques. But we’re never going to know the truth whether he killed himself or not. This is above all of our paygrades and therefore pondering and conspiracy theorizing about it can be a distraction at best, a backfiring ploy at worst.

It’s interesting, especially considering all of the powerful men within his circle who could be implicated. But the system won’t allow them to be implicated in a meaningful way. The entire Jeffrey Epstein episode can yield no fruit and is, in fact, a consciousness trap that can draw us away from much more important issues. As for getting justice for the victims, again, that’s also above our paygrades. If there’s any justice, it won’t come as a result of us Tweeting out conspiracy theories or ranting about the Clinton Kill List.

This has been on my mind for a couple of days, but a Twitter thread I just read brought it home.

There’s no need for conservatives to dwell on Jeffrey Epstein. If you think the investigation will yield fruit to use against Democrats, you’re almost certainly mistaken. Let’s not get caught in the same unhinged hopes the Democrats had for Mueller.

Don’t disregard Jeffrey Epstein’s death as a murder conspiracy theory

Dont disregard Jeffrey Epsteins death as a murder conspiracy theory

It seems as if the alleged suicide of Jeffrey Epstein is already being swept under the rug. Some of this is due to the fact that he was a monster and few people in America are sad to see him gone. But there seems to be a concerted effort to label any talk of irregularities in his “suicide” as conspiracy theories, with even the President being accused by left-wing legacy media of propagating falsehoods.

But there are serious concerns, questions that must be asked, and answers that will likely never come. Most of the conspiracy theories revolve around motive; Were Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and other lawmakers worried of being implicated by Epstein? This one isn’t a conspiracy theory. It’s well known that powerful men have been named in connection with Epstein’s child sex ring. More will likely be named. And Epstein’s word is the one that everyone wanted to hear on the matter. Would he name names to get a lightened sentence? Some indicators before his death said yes.

The real conspiracy theories lie in the unknown. If he was on suicide watch, why was he not being watched? If he was taken off of suicide watch, who’s the idiot who thought that was a good idea? Why were surveillance cameras allegedly “malfunctioning” at the most inconvenient time possible? If guards were supposed to check on him every 30 minutes, why is there a gap between the time of his death and the time his body was found?

We’re hearing all kinds of excuses. The guards were on overtime. The cameras weren’t malfunctioning, but the files are corrupt. He wasn’t really on suicide watch because he was acting happy and ready for trial. There’s no investigation because federal law enforcement do not investigate apparent suicides. We’re hearing anything and everything from the DoJ and others involved in the seemingly simple task of making sure Jeffrey Epstein didn’t die.

But, as Michael Corleone said in The Godfather, Part II, “If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that you can kill anyone.”

It is almost certain we will never know the truth about Jeffrey Epstein’s death or the people he could have implicated had he not been “taken off the table.” But that doesn’t mean we stop asking questions. Don’t let labels drive you from the truth.
