After years of denying that blood samples were taken at birth, bioethicists are arguing for the State’s right to seize newborns’ blood samples for global database.

For years, the system denied that blood samples from newborns were being taken at birth and databased into DNA ‘warehouses.’ Alex Jones and other alternative researchers railed against it for more than a decade. Now, that period of denial is over, and the same system is instead declaring its right to do so.

Bioethicists in the Science Translational Medicine journal argued that researchers should be able to retain and peruse the “genetic treasure trove” of blood samples taken during routine screenings at hospitals after birth, despite long-standing objections over privacy, parental rights and disclosure.

In fact, governments across the Western world — and almost every state in the United States — have been collecting, retaining, researching and cataloguing genetic material of babies without any statutory authority to do so, and without parental knowledge for decades.

Long legal battles in states including Minnesota and Texas have resulted in decisions requiring informed consent over these practices, given the existence of genetic privacy laws, and yet health departments and other related entities have petitioned for exemptions from these requirements. In essence, the State has, in many cases, declared ownership over your DNA, keeping genetic material indefinitely. However, in Minnesota and Texas, authorities have been ordered to destroy millions of samples to comply with privacy laws.

Twila Brase, president of the Citizens’ Council on Health Care, worked on many of these cases, and breaks down the issue in the following video:

“The DNA taken at birth from every citizen is essentially owned by the government, and every citizen becomes a potential subject of government-sponsored genetic research,” Brase states. “It does not require consent and there are no requirements to inform parents about the warehousing of their child’s DNA for the purpose of genetic research.

A 2008 law signed by President George W. Bush appears to give legitimacy to storing and researching newborn genetic material, despite legal challenges and outcry from people like Congressman Ron Paul, who say the law is unconstitutional.

Now, bioethicists Michelle Huckaby Lewis, Michael E. Scheurer, Robert C. Green and Amy L. McGuire have written a white paper to argue for the legitimacy of preserving these DNA samples for research, in spite of parental objections and clear civil rights issues.

The abstract for their policy paper, Research Results: Preserving Newborn Blood Samples, summarizes the issue:

Retention and use, without explicit parental permission, of residual dried blood samples from newborn screening has generated public controversy over concerns about violations of family privacy rights and loss of parental autonomy. The public debate about this issue has included little discussion about the destruction of a potentially valuable public resource that can be used for research that may yield improvements in public health. The research community must advocate for policies and infrastructure that promote retention of residual dried blood samples and their use in biomedical research.

These bioethicists have complained that a “narrow view of privacy is hampering research,” insisting instead that “the research community must advocate for policies that support the retention of these samples and their use in biomedical research,” as author Michelle Lewis stated. These DNA sample must be used to the “fullest extent possible to improve the health of our citizenry,” according to the authors.

The policy is squarely on the side of larger State power, where the concerns of the individual are swept aside in the name of the “greater good.” These authors emphasize the potential for research in medical treatments and other potentially life-saving solutions, and yet the era has dawned where consumer-patients are offered access to costly patented genetic interventions where an individual’s God-given genetic material is sold back to them for a price.

It is an emerging paradigm of total state control over life, reproduction, screening for “designer babies” and other related areas controlled by the system for the benefit of insider crony corporate interests. And the collectivist “bioethicists,” (who are really neo-eugenicists), are arguing for so-called ethical tradeoffs in every conceivable field — from abortion, cloning, artificial insemination, end of life care (a.k.a. death panels), animal rights, transhumanism, euthanasia, eugenics, life extension, human experimentation and much more.

Their philosophy, to empower the technocratic state and selectively advance preferred individuals under that system, comes from the classical Eugenics era, where leading voices like T. H. Huxley, president of the Royal Society of Science and grandfather of author Aldous Huxley and biologist/UNESCO founder Julian Huxley, argued that under eugenics, it is “ethical” to replace inferior individuals (and their reproductive rights) with that of superior individuals. It is an elitist creed that has passed down from the ages and continues today in the hands of the globalist cabal steering the emerging world government system.

Leading bioethicists have argued, in official white papers mind you, that babies should be allowed to be killed up to age 3, that health care rationing and death panels are justifiable, that water supplies should be laced with lithium and other mind-altering drugs to socially control the population, and much more.

Google report reveals a sharp increase in government requests for private data

Google report reveals a sharp increase in government requests for private data

The email accounts of Generals David Petraeus and John Allen aren’t the only ones being targeted by the feds. Google has released its bi-annual transparency report and says that the government’s demands for personal data is at an all-time high.

Internet giant Google published statistics from their latest analysis of requests from governments around the globe this week, and the findings show that it is hardly just the inboxes of the Pentagon’s top-brass that are being put under the microscope. Details pertaining to nearly 8,000 Google and Gmail accounts have been ordered by Uncle Sam during just the first six months of the year, and figures from the periods before suggest that things aren’t about to get any better for those wishing to protect their privacy.

“This is the sixth time we’ve released this data, and one trend has become clear: Government surveillance is on the rise,” Google acknowledges in a blog post published Tuesday, November 13.

From January through June, the US government filed more than 16,000 requests for user data from Google on as many as 7,969 individual accounts, the report shows.

The Silicon Valley company notes that “The number of requests we receive for user account information as part of criminal investigations has increased year after year,” but says that it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the government that’s ramping up the acceleration into a full-blown surveillance state. According to Google’s take, “The increase isn’t surprising, since each year we offer more products and services, and we have a larger number of users.”

For all of those requests in the US, Google says they complied with the government’s demands 90 percent of the time; but while it seems like a high number, that figure actually constitutes the smallest success rate the feds have had since Google began tracking these numbers in 2010. In a separate report published earlier this year by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the San Francisco-based advocacy group awarded Google high praise for doing more than other industry titans in terms of letting feds force them into handing over information without good reason, citing specifically their efforts — albeit unsuccessfully — in handing over user info to the Justice Department during the start of its ongoing investigation into WikiLeaks.

Of the 20,938 user data request sent from governments around the globe, the United States came in first with the number of demands at 7,969, with India at a distant second with 2,319 requests. The US government’s success rate in terms of getting that information trumps most every other country, however, with full or partial compliance on the part of Google rarely exceeding 70 percent.

Elsewhere in the report, Google says it’s more than just surveillance of individual users that is on the rise. The US has also been adamant with censoring the Web, writing Google five times between January and June to take down YouTube videos critical of government, law enforcement or public officials. In regards to the five pleas to delete seven offending videos, Google says, “We did not remove content in response to these requests.”

The company was more willing to side with authorities in other cases, though, admitting to taking down 1,664 posts from a Google Groups community after a court order asked for the removal of 1,754 on the basis of “a case of continuous defamation against a man and his family.” Google also followed through with around one-third of the requests to remove search results that linked to websites that allegedly defamed organizations and individuals (223 of the 641 pleas) and say “the number of content removal requests we received increased by 46% compared to the previous reporting period.”

According to the report, Google only received one request from the US government to remove a video from YouTube on the grounds of ensuring “national security” but does not disclose the results of that plea. No further information is available in the report as to what the government demanded removed, but in the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi originally blamed by many on an anti-Islamic video clip linked to a California man, Google rejected demands from the US to delete the ‘Innocence of Muslims’ from YouTube.

That isn’t to say that Washington is responsible for the bulk of the demands that end up on the desks of Google’s administrators. The report notes Google has received requests to remove search results that link to sites that host alleged copyright-infringing content more than 8 million times in just the last month, with more than 32,000 websites being singled out by the materials’ respective owners. Taking into account the last year and a half, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) — the largest trade-group representing the US music industry — asked Google to stop linking to roughly 4.5 million URLs that they say hosted illegal content.

Last month, the Supreme Court heard arguments to decide whether or not a case can go forth that will challenge the FISA Amendment Act of 2008, an update to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that allows the government to eavesdrop on emails sent as long as one of the persons involved is suspected of being out of the country. When asked earlier in the year to give an estimate of how many Americans have their electronic communications wiretapped by the National Security Administration, the inspector general of the NSA declined to issue a response, even to members of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

According to statements made by NSA whistleblower Bill Binney at the Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) conference in New York this year, the US government is “pulling together all the data about virtually every US citizen in the country and assembling that information, building communities that you have relationships with, and knowledge about you; what your activities are; what you’re doing.”

Activists ring alarm: Refugees face torture and exploitation in post-Gaddafi Libya

Foreign nationals without proper documentation are being exploited, indefinitely detained or even tortured, Amnesty International reports. According to Amnesty the conditions for undocumented foreigners are worse than in the Gaddafi era.

The Amnesty International report says refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Libya are being subjected to serious human rights violations that extend far beyond what they experienced under Muammar Gaddafi.

“It is shameful that Gaddafi-era abuses against foreigners, especially those from Sub-Saharan Africa, have not only continued but worsened,” Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Deputy Middle East and North Africa Director at Amnesty International, said at the briefing “We are foreigners, we have no rights.”

The report is based on Amnesty International fact finding visits to Libya between May and September. The trips revealed that foreign nationals are being abused by armed militias, who act outside the law.

“The Libyan authorities must acknowledge the extent of the abuse by militias and put in place measures to protect all foreign nationals from violence and abuse, regardless of their origin or immigration status,” urged Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui.

Migrants, asylum-seekers and refugees in Libya are absolutely unprotected by law. They can be arrested and detained in the streets, markets, checkpoints or even at home.

Some arrests are carried out by the Libyan police, but most of the operations are conducted by militiamen, who sometimes act violently, confiscating mobile phones, money and other valuables.

In detention centers foreign nationals face further humiliation. During five months Amnesty International visited nine detention centers across Libya and talked to detainees, who say they are being subjected to torture and beatings. 

Women at such centers are also vulnerable to sexual assault as none of the facilities for female detainees had female guards.
The report says that at the time of Amnesty International visits “some 2,700 foreign nationals, including pregnant women, women with young children, and unaccompanied children detained alongside adult strangers, were held for “migration-related offences”. 

A Nigerian woman told Amnesty International that she was beaten and given electric shocks while in detention. “The world needs to know what is happening to us [Sub-Saharan African nationals] in Libya. For Libyans, we are not even human. I did not do anything wrong. I just came here to work. Now I am locked up for months, and don’t know what will happen to me. There is nobody here to help me. ”

Post-Gaddafi violence

The Libyan authorities and militias do not make a distinction between migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, the organization says. All of them are similarly at risk of arbitrary arrest and indefinite detention. The lack of a functional asylum-system in Libya and its refusal to sign a memorandum of understanding with the UN Refugee Agency leaves tens of thousands of asylum seekers and refugees in legal uncertainty.

According to Amnesty International one of the most frequent accusations Africans face in Libya is that they were “mercenaries” for Gaddafi`s regime. Since the regime was ousted last year the government launched a crackdown on Gaddafi supporters.

In May the UN Support Mission in Libya reported that thousands of those who allegedly supported Muammar Gaddafi were detained in secret prisons. Some of the detainees were being tortured, activists said.

Meanwhile, post-Gaddafi chaos does not seem to be coming to an end with armed militia thriving throughout the country. The government forces are busy pursuing former Gaddafi supporters and failing to tackle violence in the country. In October a three week siege of Bani Walid resulted in humanitarian catastrophe in the city, as residents were left without food, power and medical supplies.

About 3,000 unemployed demonstrators have clashed with riot police in Naples during a protest against rocketing youth unemployment. The violence erupted in the city after a visit by Labor Minister Elsa Fornero and left 23 people injured.

­Protesters donned masks of the unpopular Fornero and waved banners calling for Prime Minister Mario Monti to step down. Fornero and the German labor minister, Ursula von der Leyen, are in Naples for talks on Italy’s economic and unemployment problems.

A skirmish erupted when a breakaway group hurled stones and bottles at police, who returned fire with teargas, leaving 23 injured.

Fornero infuriated many Italians when she told them last month not to be “choosy” when looking for work.

Italy’s youth have borne the brunt of the economic crisis and government measures to tackle it do not appear to be working. Unemployment among 15-24-year-olds stood at 35.1 per cent in September, up 4.7 per cent on last year.

Italy is laden with debt and entered into recession at the end of last year. The economic gloom has been exasperated by reports of corruption and misuse of public funds by officials and politicians.

Italian prosecutors have filed charges of market manipulation against seven officials of the Standard & Poor’s (S&P) and Fitch ratings agencies the rating agencies for a number of downgrades of Italy last year.

An Italian expert said that firms like S&P and Fitch are meddling where they shouldn’t and creating hysteria in regard to Italian debt:
“These agencies came out with declarations when the markets would be open and therefore this created a big cult [panic] on the markets about Italian sovereign debt.” Paolo Raffone told RT.
S&P and Fitch say they are cooperating fully with the Italian inquiry.

Tens of thousands of Kuwaitis have held a demonstration in the capital to protest against changes to an electoral law, which the opposition has called a constitutional coup by the government.

The protesters gathered at a square opposite the country’s parliament in Kuwait City late on Sunday to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the constitution and to demand the abrogation of the disputed electoral law.

According to opposition activists, around 200,000 people attended Sunday’s demonstration whereas independent sources put the figure at about 50,000.

The demonstrators chanted that “the people want the repeal of the law,” which was ordered by Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah to change the voting system.

“The law aims at preventing Kuwaiti popular participation in governance… and to establish autocratic rule and exploit the country’s resources,” former MP Khaled al-Sultan told the crowd.

“The amendment of the law is a breach of the constitution……

The Algerian ambassador to Tehran says the Israeli regime’s war rhetoric against Iran and other regional countries is in flagrant violation of international laws and the UN Charter.

Sofiane Mimouni said on Monday that according to the United Nations Charter, any threat against a UN member state is “forbidden and unacceptable.”

Mimouni said his country continues to support Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear technology, adding that the Islamic Republic has never violated the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

“Algeria has constantly supported the legal rights of countries, including the Islamic Republic of Iran, to possess and use peaceful nuclear technology,” said the Algerian diplomat.

Tel Aviv has repeatedly threatened Iran with a military strike, falsely claiming that Tehran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

A group of right-wing Israeli settlers tried to set fire to a Palestinian home near Bethlehem Sunday night, and spraypainted racist graffiti on the home and nearby structures.


‘Kill all Arabs’ graffiti (IMEMC archive photo)

The graffiti included ‘Death to Arabs’, which has become a rallying cry in recent years for the right-wing settler movement, whose state objective is to rid the West Bank of its indigenous Palestinian inhabitants and take over their land to annex it to Israel.

The incident took place at around 2:30 am, Monday morning, in the village of al-Manshiya southeast of Bethlehem.

According to reports from local sources, the settlers poured gasoline on the home of Younis Abu Dayyeh in the village, and spraypainted racist slogans, then tried to light the gasoline on fire. They were chased out by the villagers before they managed…

Using the same pattern as in each recent war, the United States formed a broad coalition to attack Syria. Bypassing the individual objectives of its allies, Washington has put forward a consensual discourse acceptable to all. But as the war dragged on, the initial plans have been replaced by others. Washington has revealed its cards and its allies are forced to go along. Hillary Clinton’s latest initiative shows that for the U.S. the objective is primarily economic.

U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton says Washington needs “an opposition that will be on record strongly resisting the efforts by extremists to hijack the Syrian revolution,” [1] but fails to add that it must also be open to the United States doing the same.

In an exclusive interview with RT, Syrian President Bashar Assad said that Syria is not going through a civil war, but rather a different kind of war — terrorism through proxies.

Assad told RT that the West creates scapegoats as enemies — from communism, to Islam, to Saddam Hussein. He accused Western countries of aiming to turn him into their next enemy.

While mainstream media outlets generally report on the crisis as a battle between Assad and Syrian opposition groups, the president claims that his country has been infiltrated by numerous terrorist proxy groups fighting on behalf of other powers.

In the event of a foreign invasion of Syria, Assad warned, the fallout would be too dire for the world to bear.

[ PIC 13/11/2012 – 01:09 PM ]

CAIRO/RAFAH, (PIC)– The Undersecretary of the Egyptian Ministry of Awqaf, Dr. Jamal Abdul Sattar, said that the breaking of the siege on the Gaza strip is an Islamic duty.

“Islam does not accept in any way that we live in luxury while our brothers are suffering disease, siege and hunger,” he said.

Abdul Sattar said, in a statement concerning the Egyptian convoy that visited the Gaza Strip recently, that the convoy was warmly welcomed by the people of Gaza, where the convoy’s members had met with all Palestinian factions and the Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.

Abdul Sattar said that the Egyptian security is related to the Gazan security, “Islam does not even accept to sleep full when our neighbors are hungry,” he stated.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Egyptian intellectuals has visited, on Monday evening, the Gaza Strip, to break the siege on…

GAZA, (PIC)– The government of Ismail Haneyya has called on the Arab countries to adopt serious and important stands vis-à-vis the ongoing Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.

The government said in a letter to Arab countries on Tuesday that Arab information ministers should assume their role in defending the Palestinian people and adopting serious stands toward the Israeli aggression.

It said that the Israeli occupation had crossed all red lines in its aggression on the Palestinian people for decades before the very eyes of the world community without any deterrence.

It said that the Israeli artillery shelling of civilians extending condolences to a family east of Gaza city on Saturday was a crime against humanity and a serious breach of the international humanitarian law.

The government said that the Israeli attempt to “export its internal crisis” and exploit “Palestinian blood for election…
