TODAY’S NEWS : July 18, 2012

================================================================================================

{XANIEL’S NOTE : Before we continue with the ‘ Doom and Gloom ‘ News that is ever so necessary in helping to wake up the world,

I thought I’d use this YouTube video as our lead off in today’s stories.

I feel it will help us all to remember just how special we are.  

I, of all people need these reminders, as I do tend to take the events of the world (treason and Crimes Against Humanity), very seriously.

I try my best not to allow all that I uncover and/or research to effect me in such ways that hurt my spiritual levels,

however, I am afraid that I am indeed a vengeful soul who demands justice for all the wrong doing that is becoming even more 

blatant and open as the days swim forward.

Still, it is good to throw a little something, something into the sea of bad news to help balance the mind and a vengeful soul.

I truly hope you enjoy this video as much as I do !}~~~Xaniel777

 Focusing Our Attention on the Zionist Gamers

Joe 4 Redux…

 

From Half Past Human.com

By Clif High – July 17, 2012

My bet is on August 12th as THE day that tptb and their toady minions have planned for the BIG FALSE FLAG SHOW in London for the Olympics.

Over at Red Ice Creations/Radio, the thinking man’s noodler, Henrik, has brought out an Olympics Special.

This two plus hours of radio montage features all the best cogitation on the whole Zion Olympics in London 2012 meme and its meaning.

Included in the two hours are segments from Rik Clay, who was killed for his knowledge by the tptb in ritual fashion.

Henrik and Red Ice also have more of Rik Clay interviews in their archive. These are now ever so timely.

If you get a chance to listen to the montage presented by Henrik, note that many people are postulating that THE EVENT will occur at the opening ceremonies, but, for reasons of a ‘strange coincidence’, it is my opinion that IT will occur on the last day, during the closing ceremonies on August 12, 2012.

Part of my reasoning has to do with the curious coincidence of the closing date and the first Hydrogen bomb test in Russia on August 12, 1953.

The test was called Joe 4 by the power structure here in the USA.

There are some very interesting connections between the players in that drama under Joe Stalin, and recent linguistics out of the CFR (council on foreign relations), and Tavistock** (et al…it has many ‘branding agencies’).

Of course the conspiracy nutters could be completely correct causing us to all focus our attention on the Zionist gamers in London anxiously awaiting the false flag event…in which case, will they pop it off?

Or not?

Can the new world orderonians afford to NOT use this particular karios of time for their ritual?

In my analysis, i conclude that they have to do it.

Even if tens of millions of us are watching, and waiting for it, knowing in advance that it is all lies and mis-direction, i think that this particular moment in time is too precious for them to lose the opportunity.

The particular energies and strains in the global control matrix are currently so great that tptb need all their tools just to have a hope of continuation, let alone ‘success’.

It is this desperate need that has been in our data for years that backs their [fear quotient] around this time in history.

It is this [fear] of [loss] that will drive tptb to [desperate measures], which i think will include doing a false flag even though we are all watching, waiting, and talking about it advance.

And even knowing that we will all be pointing fingers and raising one hell of a stink afterward, i think that tptb have their nuts in a temporal vise, and MUST do SOMETHING.

Now, that does not mean i am correct.

They may feel the 20 million or so eyeballs on their hairy scrotums and NOT pop off their dastardly plot…but that alone will spell their ruination.

The lack of the ritual will instantly feedback into their efforts to keep their grip on the populace inducing all kinds of problems in many different directions.

In fact, nearly too many splinter problems will develop to adequately detail them here, but some of the main and very visible ones will include :

[military rebellions (by line officers as well as soldiers)],

[mass desertions (from military, law enforcement, gov’t)],

[political disertions (from coerced international agreements)],

[derivatives of all kinds imploding the financial system from the inside],

[israeli govt implodes from inside due to ‘murder’ and ‘theft’ charges],

[vatican implodes], and

[vatican is looted *during upcoming food riots], and

[exposure *ultimate* of secrets revealed],

[US shadow govt offices looted (during upcoming food riots in eastern corridor = also includes first ‘armed military rebellion’ in the ranks since last century) and release of hidden space alien info],

and it goes on.

It would seem from their words that tptb are very much aware of the swinging of the scales and the lack of balance.

They are believers in their rituals of control and i think that this belief system will bring them to this point of internal agony just before August 12, 2012, but in the end, i think that they must use the temporal mix of that day.

Either way it will be very interesting to say the least.

The Zion OlympiXXX organizers have reputedly ordered 120 thousand condoms, and 200 thousand body bags.

The condoms are for the athletes. i wonder who the body bags are for?

** Note that Tavistock owns/runs/dominates many fora (plural of forum) on the net.

They use these for specific purposes. The one that they use for triggers, and signals is called GLP for godlikeproductions.

The glp forum would be the one to monitor for hints as to Tavistock’s participation in this upcoming show.

BUT be aware it is a pattern described by its absence…meaning NO mention of Tavistock is allowed at the GLP,

and so one has to read by inference as to what message Tavistock is promoting through their stooges at the site.

Make sense? It is not what you see there, but what you do not that tells the tale.

Prove it to yourself. Register at GLP and simply start a post with the word Tavistock in it….you’ll see soon enough.

Report: Clinton assures Israel, Mursi will keep Gaza closure

=========================================================================

{XANIEL’S NOTE : How much more obvious can this be,  that the U.S.A. is helping Israel’s Internationally illegal

Blockade of Gaza and her people??

And as it has been asked already by others, I too ask,

” What did Secretary of State, Hillary ‘ the Hemorrhoid ‘ Clinton  promise Egypt that they will gladly walk the evil path of this ‘ Crime Against Humanity ‘ ?

Financial Aid in the form of already ‘ stretched beyond the limit ‘ taxpayer money ?

A joy ride on Airforce One with Presidential bathroom privileges where every sheet of the toilet paper has Obama’s face on it ?

Or maybe a quick peek under Clinton’s dress just so they can see the man size BALL’S this brassy crime bitch is dangling ? ”

Whatever the price, it has become clear where there was doubt before, that Egypt’s Leadership does very much seem to still be in the pocket of Israel and the United States.

Sad to say, but I guess Egypt’s people are not any more free than they were before !}~~~Xaniel777

palace in Cairo July 14, 2012. (Reuters/Amr Abdallah Dalsh)

July 16, 2012

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Israeli officials during her visit to the country on Monday that the new Egyptian president had promised her he would not end the closure of the Gaza Strip, an Israeli news site said.

Clinton secured a promise from Muhammad Mursi, Egypt’s first Islamist president, that it would not fully open the Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip, the sole entry and exit point not controlled by Israel, Israel’s Inyan Merkazi (‘Central Issues’) news site said.

Israel maintains a land, sea and air blockade on the Gaza Strip, tightened five years ago when Hamas took control of the coastal enclave.

Quoting unnamed Israeli sources, the site said Clinton reassured Israeli officials that Mursi will respect the 1979 peace deal between Israel and Egypt, and intends to request some amendments to its terms.

The new Egyptian president wants to deploy more Egyptian security forces to the Sinai peninsula which borders Israel, currently restricted under the Camp David agreement.

Officials in the Gaza Strip have expressed optimism that Mursi, whose Muslim Brotherhood party is close to Gaza rulers Hamas, would break a hole in the blockade by fully opening the Rafah border.

It was shut in 2006 under Israel and Egypt’s blockade of the enclave, but reopened in May 2011, three months after former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was ousted by massive street protests against his rule.

Poll: 80% of Americans Would Consider Voting for a 3rd Party/Independent Presidential Candidate

 {XANIEL’S NOTE : Older story but I have no doubt applies to today !! }~~~Xaniel777

From America First.com
July 17, 2012

I’m more than considering it!

May 10, 2011

The recent Reason-Rupe poll finds that 80% of Americans say they would or might consider voting for an Independent or third-party presidential candidate in the 2012 election.

Specifically, 60% said they would consider voting for an independent or third-party candidate, 20% said they might consider, 17% said they would not consider, and 3% said they did not know whether they would consider voting for an Independent or third-party presidential candidate.

To be clear, considering and voting are two separate things.

Nevertheless, the high percentage tells us something about the current political climate.

It means that individuals are willing to at least consider candidates who do not necessarily fit the cookie-cutter molds of Democrats and Republicans and suggests that the electorate is receptive to unconventional candidates.

Across partisan identification, 89% of Independents (including partisan leaners), 86% of Republicans, and 71% of Democrats said they would or might consider candidates outside of the two major political parties.

Note: Partisan identification is based on Q42 in the questionnaire.

Independents include both Democratic and Republican leaners as well as pure independents.

Beyond receptiveness to unconventional partisan candidates, Americans report having little trust in the two major political parties.

When asked which party they trust to govern more responsibly, the leading answer was “neither” at 35%, followed by Democrats at 31%, and Republicans at 23%.

RNC confirms Ron Paul will be up for nomination

 

From examiner.com

Ron Paul delivers a speech at a Ron Paul rally.

The Republican National Convention is quickly approaching (August 26th).

For over the past year, avid Ron Paul supporters have won delegate spots in various state conventions across the country.

Through this hard-work, Ron Paul will officially be allowed to be nominated for the nominee of the Republican Party.

For the past three days, Ben Swann (Fox19 Cincinnati) has been in contact with a Republican Rules Committee member.

In order for a candidate to be elected for the Republican Party nomination, the candidate must have a plurality in five or more states.

If by rule, binding and non-binding policies are applied to delegates, it would still not affect the process of voting for placement of a candidate’s name into the potential nominee ballot.

Presidential hopeful Ron Paul does have a plurality in five or more states (Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Iowa).

This means that Ron Paul will be eligible for nomination on August 26th in Tampa Bay.

The Ron Paul Revolution is planning on amassing 100,000+ supporters to Tampa in order to celebrate Paul’s 30+ year career in American politics.

However, the Republican National Committee senses pressure from the Paul supporters.

The RNC has attempted to block access in order to make the convention as exclusive as possible.

Ben Swann conducted an interview with members of the RNC Rules Committee and they did answer the questions with the previous information.

However, due to the RNC being a private organization they are not subject to following by their “rules” or “statements.”

Whether the RNC abides by their statements, we will find out this August.

The Ron Paul Revolution carries on to Tampa Bay with assurance that Ron Paul has the potential to be nominated.

Whether or not Paul does win the nomination, we are all in for something special this August.

Film Focus: ‘Voters in America: Who Counts’

 

From OceanDrive

By LIANA LOZADA -July 12, 2012

A new documentary airing on CNN this Sunday (July 15) shines a light on pending Florida voter legislation that could keep important minority and youth votes from being cast in the next presidential election.

The hour-long special, Voters in America: Who Counts, premiered to Miami audiences at June’s American Black Film Festival, where CNN anchor Don Lemon and documentary narrator Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy) led a panel discussion with producers Geraldine Moriba and Robert Ruff.

If passed, the new legislation (House Bill 1355) will eliminate one of the two Sundays during early voting days (popular with minorities and students), enforce a tight 48-hour window for community groups, like the NAACP the League of Women Voters, to submit new voter applications, and make upwards of 80 other changes to Florida’s election laws.

We talked to Lemon and Williams offstage to learn more about the film and the bill.

What made you want to get involved with this documentary, and the discussion today?

JESSE WILLIAMS: I had the opportunity to lend my voice to something that would cross generations and also educate myself in the process. It couldn’t have come at a better time, with the election coming up. The stakes are extremely high and Florida is an important state.   

DON LEMON: My simple answer is I work for CNN.

If you want to see the best documentaries on television, they are on CNN.

This is an important issue coming up in an election year. People have real issues when it comes to voter fraud and suppression.

We’ll be choosing the leader of the free world, the president of the United States, so there are fewer things that are as important.

Some have argued that Florida’s swing state status is not as crucial as it was during the 2008 election. Do you agree?

DL: Florida is very important, especially when you look at what is happening now with immigration and when you talk about the number of electoral votes it has.

One of the vice presidential candidates on the Republican side could come from Florida in [Senator] Marco Rubio.

[In 2008] we didn’t think, at least I didn’t, that the nation could be so partisan and so divided, and it is even more divisive now.

It’s unbelievable. When you talk about politics, or even report on it, the number of negatives you get from both democrats and republicans is just amazing to me.

JW: It’s getting out of hand. It is affecting lives at this point. It’s consistently more divisive and has turned into a battlefield.

This was an opportunity for us to try and heal that divide, with information and arming people with wisdom.

It’s not just about the polls, it’s about being informed on the many, many moving pieces that are involved in our policy making.

What about the inherent goal of House Bill 1355 to prevent voter fraud?

JW: There is certainly some merit [to the bill]. But it’s not about bad guys or good guys, it’s about information

What’s the best course of action for inspired viewers of the film?

DL: The best way to do something is to carry your butt to the polls and vote. Everyone should vote; it is a right as well as a privilege.

*Update: CNN’s Voters in America: Who Counts has gone back into production and will not air on July 15, but rather in September. Jesse Williams’ narration will not be featured.

Arizona Election Fraud: Judge Kyle Bryson’s Ruling Prompts Motion for a New Trial

 

From The INTERCEPT

J.T. Waldron – July 17, 2012

Jim March, BlackBoxVoting.org, 

Attorney Bill Risner,  John Brakey, AUDITAZ

“The ease of cheating when matched with the impossibility of challenging any specific election requires court intervention in order to protect the purity of elections and ensure that we will have free elections.” – Attorney Bill Risner

Judge Kyle Bryson’s decision was so far off the mark Attorneys Bill Risner and Ralph Ellingwood have decided to file a motion for a new trial instead of appealing the judge’s opinion.

According to their motion, “The court’s ruling of May 4, 2012 was contrary to law.  This court should correct its ruling and erroneous judgement and require the county to file its answer to the counterclaim filed on October 3, 2008. ”

 A new trial was anticipated due to the inherent flaw of the ruling, which tries to guess what the plaintiff’s anticipated remedy for prospective relief would be.  

After speculating what the plaintiff wants, Bryson rules erroneously over the legality of their request in direct contradiction to what the appellate court had already allowed in its decision granting the hearing for prospective relief.

Such reckless judgery strips Pima County’s courts of any pretense of impartiality, which is a final, desperate measure that underscores how the county is running out of tricks.  

The RTA ballots for this two billion dollar bond measure are being held under a court order to ensure restricted access to their location at the Iron Mountain storage facility.  

The RTA ballots await a proper forensic examination and, given the discovery of missing poll tapes, the public can surmise why Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry is using all legal means necessary to prevent a proper forensic examination of the ballots.  

These efforts, of course, contradict numerous claims by Huckelberry that he welcomes scrutiny because it would exonerate Pima County Elections Division. 

What scrutiny has discovered via the courts so far squarely condemns Pima County Elections Division.  Pima County’s delays in trying this case are ultimately standing in the way of transparent, accurate elections nationwide.

Use of electronic voting machines have become the insidious condition for fraud that continues unabated as the 2012 elections draw nearer. 

A string of US Supreme Court victories unearthing corruption and fraud within Arizona’s Pima County Elections Division have become a lynchpin for the security of elections throughout the United States.

 No other legal pursuit has been as comprehensive in identifiying specific conditions in electronic database files that warrant election challenges, collecting comprehensive testimony from officials throughout the country condemning electronic voting systems and providing the legal foundation for propective relief that could improve election transparency nationwide.

The evidence for fraud in the 2006 RTA election in Pima County exists from so many different angles that the value of these trials as prededent-setting cases is priceless.  

Actual tools used for cheating were discovered on the premises, taxpayer-funded studies were commissioned for a precinct by precinct analysis of bond elections that line up with the same cluster of hacked precinct memory cards on RTA’s election night and an elections computer operator has admitted that he was instructed to rig the RTA election by his boss. 

With a local blackout that rivals the 1976 murder of Arizona Republic journalist Don Bolles, local media coverage is in a state of paralysis over recent evidence and cover-up of the 2006 RTA election.  

Pima County’s influence over the pool of journalists succeeds through exploitation of increased economic scarcity in print and television media.  

Taxpayer dollars are funneled into a final path for job security for a pool of at least ten local professional journalists who have now enlisted with Pima County’s public relations team.  

Fear of retaliation and lost opportunity will continue to undermine local critical coverage of the 2006 RTA election.

Attorneys involved with case have made tremendous personal and financial sacrifices as Pima County’s judges refuse to compensate the victors for their legal expenses.  

Election integrity activists with AUDITAZ and BlackBoxVoting.org have overlooked their own financial security and wellbeing in this war of cost and attrition – all for the end game of restoring the integrity of elections nationwide. 

Additional information will be provided for the hearing, which is currently set to take place on August 13, 2012.

Dozens of Genetically Modified Babies Already Born – How Will They Alter Human Species?

 

Mercola.com

Bet’cha can’t wait to make one of these !

Am I right…huh..am I….??~~Xaniel777

From Mercola

By Dr. Mercola – July 17, 2012

When I first read that genetically modified humans have already been born, I could hardly believe it. However, further research into this story featured in the UK’s Daily Mail1proved it to be true. They’ve really done it… they’ve created humans that nature could never allow for, and it’s anyone’s guess as to what will happen next.

Even more shocking was the discovery that this is actually old news!

The Daily Mail article was not dated, and upon investigation, the experiments cited actually took place over a decade ago; the study announcing their successful birth was published in 20012.

While I typically comment on recent findings and health related news, in this case I will make an exception, because I think many of you may be as surprised by this information as I was. I do not propose to have any answers here as this is out of my scope of expertise.

At best, I hope I can stir you to ponder the implications of this type of genetic engineering, and I invite you to share your perspective in the vital votes’ comment section below.

As reported in the featured article:

“The disclosure that 30 healthy babies were born after a series of experiments in the United States provoked another furious debate about ethics… Fifteen of the children were born… as a result of one experimental program at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science of St Barnabas in New Jersey.

The babies were born to women who had problems conceiving. Extra genes from a female donor were inserted into their eggs before they were fertilized in an attempt to enable them to conceive.

Genetic fingerprint tests on two one-year- old children confirm that they have inherited DNA from three adults—two women and one man.”

Human Germline Now Altered… What Happens Next?

Today, these children are in their early teens, and while the original study claims that this was “the first case of human germline genetic modification resulting in normal healthy children,” later reports put such claims of absolute success in dispute. Still, back in 2001, the authors seemed to think they had it all under control, stating:

“These are the first reported cases of germline mtDNA genetic modification which have led to the inheritance of two mtDNA populations in the children resulting from ooplasmic transplantation. These mtDNA fingerprints demonstrate that the transferred mitochondria can be replicated and maintained in the offspring, therefore being a genetic modification without potentially altering mitochondrial function.”

It’s relevant to understand that these children have inherited extra genes—that of TWO women and one man—and will be able to pass this extra set of genetic traits to their own offspring. One of the most shocking considerations here is that this was done—repeatedly—even though no one knows what the ramifications of having the genetic traits of three parents might be for the individual, or for their subsequent offspring.

Based on what I’ve learned about the genetic engineering of plants, I’m inclined to say the ramifications could potentially be vast, dire, and completely unexpected.

As a general, broad-strokes rule, it seems few scientists fond of gene-tinkering have a well-rounded or holistic view of living organisms, opting instead to view the human body as a machine. And as demonstrated with the multi-varied problems that have arisen from genetically engineered foods—from the development of superweeds and superpests, to the creation of a never-before-seen organism now linked to miscarriage and infertility—such a view is bound to lead you to the wrong conclusions…

Surprise, Surprise… “Unpredictable Outcomes” Reported

As it turns out, this type of genetic modification, called cytoplasmic transfer, is actually a hot topic among geneticists, but it’s rarely published or discussed in the lay press, if at all—as evidenced by my own surprise when reading this decade-old piece of news.

Many follow-up reports continue to tout the high success of this method of treating infertility. But some, including a book put out by Cambridge Press, warns of the dangers and risks of this procedure. For example, the following excerpts from a report3 delivered during the 2003 World Congress on Controversies in Obstetrics, Gynecology & Infertility in Berlin raises questions about the less than thoughtful implementation of this technology, and some of the problems encountered:

“… Cytoplasmic control of preimplantation development is not a “new” concept, but ooplasm transfer have been amazingly rapidly applied in humans, with relative success, in the absence of extensive research to evaluate the efficacy and the potential risks of the method, resulting in some publications highlighting the potential dangers (Winston and Hardy 2002, DeRycke et al 2002, Templeton 2002), and unpredictable outcomes (Cummins 2001, 2002).

… A frank follow-up of ooplasmic transplantation pregnancies and infants reports that two out of 17 fetuses had an abnormal 45, XO karyotype. The authors assume the hypothesis of a link between chromosomal anomalies and oocytes manipulation, and reveal that one of the babies has been diagnosed at 18 months with Pervasive Developmental Disorder, a spectrum of autism-related diagnoses.” [Emphasis mine]

So it didn’t take long—less than two years, in fact—for reports of “unpredictable outcomes” to crop up. I for one am not surprised. It’s somewhat disconcerting that so much of this research is taking place without open discussion about the ethical questions associated with it.

The US FDA appears to have begun looking at the ethics of ooplasmic transplantation, and in one powerpoint4 it is pointed out that an 18-month-old child born from this procedure has been diagnosed with autism (PDD), and that the incidence of chromosomal anomalies is known to be higher in children born from the procedure than the rate of major congenital abnormalities observed in the natural population.

The document also states that lack of testing and long-term follow-up of the children born from the procedure so far is a significant shortcoming, making evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of the technique very difficult. The genetic modification of humans appears to have been running alongside the genetic engineering of plants, being just a few years behind in terms of the technology being unleashed, and the lack of proper evaluation of health effects is apparently on par as well, which is to say near non-existent…

Could They Create Patentable Humans? Perhaps…

Another horrific side effect that has nothing to do with health per se, is the potential that making this procedure widely available may trigger a “patent” war; meaning these genetically modified humans could become patentable property.

Sound crazy?

You bet! But it’s not outside the realm of possibility. The world is already embroiled in discussions about which genetically engineered life forms can and cannot be patented5, and biotech companies have secured patents on everything from genetically modified seeds to engineered animals of various kinds. Even human genes have already been patented!

As explained by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)6:

“The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) grants patents on human genes, which means that the patent holders own the exclusive rights to those genetic sequences, their usage, and their chemical composition. Anyone who makes or uses a patented gene without permission of the patent holder – whether it be for commercial or noncommercial purposes – is committing patent infringement and can be sued by the patent holder for such infringement. Gene patents, like other patents, are granted for 20 years.

For example, Myriad Genetics, a private biotechnology company based in Utah, controls patents on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes [two genes associated with hereditary breast- and ovarian cancer]. Because of its patents, Myriad has the right to prevent anyone else from testing, studying, or even looking at these genes. It also holds the exclusive rights to any mutations along those genes. No one is allowed to do anything with the BRCA genes without Myriad’s permission.

A 2005 study found that 4,382 of the 23,688 human genes in the National Center for Biotechnology Information’s gene database are explicitly claimed as intellectual property.  This means that nearly 20% of human genes are patented. In addition to the BRCA genes, genes associated with numerous diseases, both common and rare, are patented, including Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, some forms of colon cancer, Canavan disease, hemochromatosis, some forms of muscular dystrophy, Long QT Syndrome, and many others.”

If this sounds outrageous, illegal, and nonsensical, it’s because it’s all of those things. The ACLU claims to be engaged in a noble lawsuit against the US Patent and Trademark Office to stop the practice of issuing patents that are contrary to the law, which states only inventions can be patented—not naturally occurring parts of the human body. Still, the precedent has been clearly set. So what’s to stop a company from eventually claiming patent rights on an entire individual?

Human Cloning Next?

According to the featured article7, “altering the human germline—in effect tinkering with the very make-up of our species—is a technique shunned by the vast majority of the world’s scientists. Geneticists fear that one day this method could be used to create new races of humans with extra, desired characteristics such as strength or high intelligence.”

But that’s clearly not the end of the line in terms of where this technology might lead, if it hasn’t already:

“… Jacques Cohen is regarded as a brilliant but controversial scientist who has pushed the boundaries of assisted reproduction technologies,” Mail Online states8. “He developed a technique which allows infertile men to have their own children, by injecting sperm DNA straight into the egg in the lab. Prior to this, only infertile women were able to conceive using IVF.

Last year [2000], Professor Cohen said that his expertise would allow him to clone children—a prospect treated with horror by the mainstream scientific community. ‘It would be an afternoon’s work for one of my students,’ he said, adding that he had been approached by ‘at least three’ individuals wishing to create a cloned child, but had turned down their requests.”

That was then—12 years ago. One can only guess what might have transpired in laboratories such as that of Professor Cohen since then…
