CHINA’S Factories

CHINA doesn’t need our factories anymore; they can build and maintain their own. All they need is a market.

We need to get out and let them be self-sufficient. Not to would be exploitive on our part.

Chinese Scientist Claims to Use Crispr to Make First Genetically Edited Babies

The researcher, He Jiankui, offered no evidence or data to back up his assertions. If true, some fear the feat could open the door to “designer babies.”

A microplate from Chinese scientist He Jiankui’s lab, containing embryos whose genes have been edited. Dr. He’s announcement prompted a statement from a group of 122 scientists condemning his actions as “crazy.”

Ever since scientists created the powerful gene editing technique Crispr, they have braced apprehensively for the day when it would be used to create a genetically altered human being. Many nations banned such work, fearing it could be misused to alter everything from eye color to I.Q.

Now, the moment they feared may have come. On Monday, a scientist in China announced that he had created the world’s first genetically edited babies, twin girls who were born this month.

The researcher, He Jiankui, said that he had altered a gene in the embryos, before having them implanted in the mother’s womb, with the goal of making the babies resistant to infection with H.I.V. He has not published the research in any journal and did not share any evidence or data that definitively proved he had done it.

But his previous work is known to many experts in the field, who said — many with alarm — that it was entirely possible he had.

“It’s scary,” said Dr. Alexander Marson, a gene editing expert at the University of California in San Francisco.

While the United States and many other countries have made it illegal to deliberately alter the genes of human embryos, it is not against the law to do so in China, but the practice is opposed by many researchers there. A group of 122 Chinese scientists issued a statement calling Dr. He’s actions “crazy” and his claims “a huge blow to the global reputation and development of Chinese science.”

If human embryos can be routinely edited, many scientists, ethicists and policymakers fear a slippery slope to a future in which babies are genetically engineered for traits — like athletic or intellectual prowess — that have nothing to do with preventing devastating medical conditions.

While those possibilities might seem far in the future, a different concern is urgent and immediate: safety. The methods used for gene editing can inadvertently alter other genes in unpredictable ways. Dr. He said that did not happen in this case, but it is a worry that looms over the field.

Dr. He made his announcement on the eve of the Second International Summit on Human Genome Editing in Hong Kong, saying that he had recruited several couples in which the man had H.I.V. and then used in vitro fertilization to create human embryos that were resistant to the virus that causes AIDS. He said he did it by directing Crispr-Cas9 to deliberately disable a gene, known as CCR₅, that is used to make a protein H.I.V. needs to enter cells.

Dr. He said the experiment worked for a couple whose twin girls were born in November. He said there were no adverse effects on other genes…

CHINESE NOT CHINA

My only focus now is Chinese. Not China. Chinese.

I know all I need to know about you. Your history is irrelevant to me. It’s too long. Easy to get lost in long history.

I know your weakness. I know your strength. Your weakness and strength are equal, not the same.

I know you’re losing time so try to catch up too fast. I’m watching you as you follow yourself into your own nightmare wanting to be brave.

Punishment makes the punisher stronger, then weaker, then weakest, then weaker than the punished, till the punished rise to defeat the punisher with punishment.

Again the cycle continues.

Chinese tired and sick of body and mind from punisher, punished, punishment. All the time punish.

Chinese want no more. Ah peace. Yes. Punishment no. Punishment ah bring no peace only sorrow.

The time for talking is over. China thinks it just began. That’s how slow China is. That’s China’s weakness.

China look stupid because China slow. Enemy throw up hands. We get our China way.

No. Negotiation is over. You had your way too long. It didn’t work. Now it’s our way.

China too long. Now okay. We talk.

No, go home. Make Chinese people happy. No punishment. The door will open on its own.

China open now.

No. China’s not open. Chinese not happy yet.

Will be happy if China open.

Say who?

China.

Wrong answer.

China still too long?

Yes.

Next time you knock China door no open.

China still punisher.

Ops. Okay, okay. I see. Reward better than punishment.

No punishment is the reward. Chinese must work for everything else the same as everybody else.

What China Strength?

Persistence.

CHINA TWIG

You break like a brittle twig

because you lack life

because you take life

instead of give life.

Chinese broken.

Chinese break easy.

Chinese selfish – must control every detail from destruction to death.

Chinese have no God, so devil enters easy.

Fry a dog. Chew a leg, break the panda’s back. Jump up and down. Eat your baby’s foot. All for no luck.

Disgust rages black and yellow sting bees behind the back of the mirror locked to roses falling like frozen rain jackets smeared with molten blood to throw the devil baby soldiers so I can see the moving targets.

Wrapping them in blankets won’t keep them still – so you must do the kill – all for evil, while evil laughs at your arrogance and pities your rich black and yellow slaves wanting more.

I killed my first soldier tonight sent to kill me.

I feel free, not liberated – not yet – there will be others.

At least now I know I can do it – without hesitation – with ease actually.

One move over the line – and any hope for negotiation was gone.

I moved swiftly with only one person, with only one purpose – to kill my assassin.

Three came – 2 walked away. Three leather jackets – black hair, the gold shining on their M.E. skins shined dull as they were neutralized.

Two pandas to go. Extra sauce please.

No. I want them alive in cages.

ON TAIWAN

Congratulations to Donald Trump for breaking the Taiwan Embargo. You go guy!

The USA has historically supported pro independence policies for those who pursued them. A One China Policy is hypocritical to USA values. However, because the USA fears China, they bow to their demands, whereby a USA president cannot even speak to a high-ranking Taiwan official without first clearing it with dictator China by giving them a bunch of stuff they don’t deserve.

This fear spills over, boils over, generalizes to relations with other countries and Peoples. For instance, the USA fears Muslims, so the USA media and politicians jump all over anyone who justly criticizes them, stating as their reason that Muslims won’t snitch on their families and may even bomb us if we criticize them. What is this all about?

That’s like the American Black threatening to burn cities unless they’re given affirmative action for crimes committed. Then in a way to placate them, these same terrorists are given around the clock cable T.V. coverage again stating their demands: We’ll ask you nice once, then if you don’t do as we say, we’ll make you give us what we want, which translates to burning cities. That’s terrorist talk and we give comfort to the friends of the terrorists after each terrorist decides to become a martyr for the cause by forcing a police officer to shoot them by putting a police officer in harm’s way.

The USA government tells the populace not to fear, but then acts in a fearful manner themselves by placating the terrorists.

No other nation on earth has earned its independence more than Taiwan. But look, Taiwan doesn’t seek total independence. Listen to what they want. It’s time to talk it over and come to a mutually beneficial and acceptable agreement for those two parties only. The USA should have no say except to facilitate fairness. China needs to stop acting the dictator and owner of the Taiwanese people and their land and property. Humble demeanor from both sides is required here.

Donald Trump needs to talk to all world leaders, including so-called enemies of the USA. The first talk should be absent any preconditions for that initial talk. If the other side has preconditions, then the talk will not take place, until preconditions are dropped. That’s how trust is built.

The USA needs to stop fearing reprisal by other nations for standing by its values and beliefs. They need to stop fearing segments of their own populace who commit acts of domestic martyrdom and domestic terrorism.

Good first move Donald Trump.
