Dr. Feng Zhang, from the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology, discusses how instead of taking prescription pills when you are sick, soon you may be able to opt for genetic ‘surgery’—using genome editing technology to add, subtract or modify sequences in the genome as one would text in a word processor. Genome editing recently made news when it was used in HIV treatment to disable a gene in immune cells, allowing them to become resistant to HIV infection. But now there’s a faster and easier technology for researchers to accomplish such feats, known as CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats).
Dr. Feng Zhang is at the forefront of CRISPR development, which have been used to edit the genomes of tobacco, rice, fruit flies, worms, mice, rats, pigs, and even monkeys, faster than ever before. CRISPR is also being explored as a way to change the genomes of humans with cystic fibrosis, cancer, Parkinson’s, and other diseases. Join Dr. Zhang as he discusses this exciting and cutting edge technology.
The Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus provides a forum where Members and staff can interact directly with preeminent researchers responsible for important scientific discoveries. Many of the stunning advances, made possible by NIH funding, highlighted in these presentations have led to improved understanding of the cause, treatment, and prevention of human disease.
The trial is being co-led by Stephen B. Kennedy, M.D., M.P.H., Secretary-General of the Liberia College of Physicians and Surgeons, Fatorma Baloy, Ph.D., Director, Liberian Institute for Biomedical Research, and H. Clifford Lane, M.D., NIAID’s Deputy Director for Clinical Research and Special Projects. The pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), based in Research Triangle Park, N.C., will supply the NIAID/GSK vaccine candidate, and the Merck Corp., headquartered in Kenilworth, N.J., will supply the VSV-ZEBOV test vaccine.
The NIAID/GSK Ebola vaccine candidate, also called cAd-EBOZ, is based on a harmless, recombinant chimpanzee cold virus, called chimpanzee adenovirus type 3 (cAd3) that is used as a carrier, or vector, to deliver segments of genetic material derived from the Zaire strain of Ebola virus. The Zaire species of the virus has caused the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The vaccine delivers one part of the Ebola genetic material to human cells, but the adenovirus vector does not replicate. Rather, the Ebola gene that it carries allows the cells of the vaccine recipient to express a single Ebola protein, and that protein prompts an immune response in the individual.
Note: By their own words…engineering of ebola and chimp virus to achieve an immune response. Their novel and emerging bioweapon capability is proven, they have willfully performed the act (Actus reus). As for Mens Rea…

- Direct intention: the actor has a clear foresight of the consequences of his actions, and desires those consequences to occur. It’s his aim or purpose to achieve this consequence (death).
- Oblique intention: the result is a virtually certain consequence or a ‘virtual certainty’ of the defendant’s actions, and that the defendant appreciates that such was the case.
- Knowingly: the actor knows, or should know, that the results of his conduct are reasonably certain to occur
- Recklessness: the actor foresees that particular consequences may occur and proceeds with the given conduct, not caring whether those consequences actually occur or not
- Criminal negligence: the actor did not actually foresee that the particular consequences would flow from his actions, but a reasonable person, in the same circumstances, would have foreseen those consequences
It has been about four years now since the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a law passed by the U.S. Congress in 1986 preventing consumers from suing pharmaceutical companies for damages due to vaccines. Prior to 1986, it was not profitable for most pharmaceutical companies to manufacture vaccines due to sheer volume of lawsuits resulting from damages. So the pharmaceutical industry basically blackmailed Congress by stating they would stop manufacturing vaccines altogether unless they had legal immunity from vaccine-injured people suing them. Congress obliged, and the Supreme Court upheld the law after a couple of decades of challenges.
Now, with free license to dump as many new vaccines into the marketplace as they choose, the amount and rates of vaccines in the U.S. have exploded. So too have the criminal activities of vaccine producers.
The latest case of criminal activity reported by mainstream media sources this week involved Iowa State University HIV vaccine researcher Dong-Pyou Han. Han confessed to fraudulently injecting samples of rabbit blood with human antibodies to make an experimental HIV vaccine appear to have great promise, and earn $19 million in grant money (funded by your tax dollars) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The US healthcare industry is run by a Medical Cartel encompassing Federal regulators and giant Pharmaceutical companies posting sales in excess of half a trillion dollars. Vaccines comprise a major portion of this cash flow as does Cancer Therapy. Both are vital to the gross profitability and expansion of the Cartel regardless of how many people are actually cured.
The Spanish Flu epidemic, ravaging the US and Europe towards the end of World War I was attributed to compulsory vaccination of US servicemen. As the flu spread, an estimated 20 million people died. Whereas, most of those who survived, had refused to take the vaccine.
In the March 1977 issue of Science, Jonas and Darrell Salk made the startling revelation that, “Live virus vaccines against influenza or poliomyelitis may in each instance produce the disease it is intended to prevent….” This should make every thinking person pause and consider whether vaccines do more harm than good.
