Scientist Working on Gov’t Ebola Drug Joked about Culling Population with GMO Virus

| |


This is definitely not the guy you want joking around about mass culling the population with genetically engineered viruses.

Media coverage is now focusing on the experimental Ebola treatments being given to two American Ebola patients who contracted it while caring for victims in Africa — the site of the world’s deadliest outbreak.

But that Ebola treatment was developed by a leading bioengineering scientist from the University of Arizona who was caught on camera “joking” about wiping out humanity. Dr. Charles Arntzen suggested the use of a “better” genetically engineered virus during a post-lecture Q&A focused on over-population issues, citing the 2011 Hollywood film ‘Contagion.’

As Truthstream Media previously reported, on February 2, 2012, Dr. Charles Arntzen, head of The Biodesign Institute for Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, responded to a question pertaining to whether feeding some eight billion people in the world was worth it, or whether population reduction should be pursued.

In response, Dr. Arntzen quipped:

“Has anybody seen ‘Contagion’? That’s the answer! Go out and use genetic engineering to create a better virus… 25 percent of the population is supposed to go in Contagion.”

While this comment was made prior to the current Ebola outbreak fears, it is unsettling given the fact that Dr. Arntzen was already working a biotech vaccine for Ebola.

Among the many high level projects Dr. Arntzen has worked on for DARPA, as well as private biotech industry include an edible vaccine with genetically engineered medicine/vitamins grown into foods like bananas and even work on bioterrorism vaccine antigens for U.S. Biowarfare Defense alongside Mitch Hein, the founder of Epicyte – the biotech firm that created spermicidal anti-bodies grown in corn to slow human reproduction.

A great deal of related research into other bioweapon treatments is directly based upon Dr. Charles Arntzen’s pioneering research.

Among these experimental treatments are a storable genetically engineered Anthrax vaccine for use during a biological attack, as well as research into biopharmaceutical treatments for the plague, cholera and other infectious diseases that could create a pandemic.

In light of this background, statements like the one made by Arntzen hardly convey trust in a process that is already less than transparent and prone to speculation, various states of unrest and panic on the part of the public. The Daily Mail reported that much of the local population in Sierra Leone have been distrustful of medical workers there and blamed the deaths on a ‘government conspiracy’.

Someone casually remarking on culling some 25% of the population with a bioweapon is THE LAST PERSON you’d want to trust with creating an already dangerous countermeasure to Ebola, which carries a death rate as high as 90%.

And yet, that is exactly who has been leading this biowarfare research for decades now…

    Only 25%? We can do better than that!

    No joke…………read the Georgia Guide Stones. This has been brought to America to cull the population in order to make us more manageable.

    I have always said that as genetic engineering matured, we would reach a point where crazy loons do with genetics what computer programmers do with computer viruses.

    The next great plague will likely start out as a joke or a bit of revenge or just look what I can do…. gone too far!

    More disgusting, Mengele-like quotes. The evil envisaged by these people is frightening:

    The present vast overpopulation, now far beyond the world
    carrying capacity, cannot be answered by future reductions in the birth rate due to contraception, sterilization and abortion, but must be met in the present by the reduction of numbers presently existing. This must be done by whatever means necessary.”

    CHARTER (of course the authors of this are excepted, just like Nancy Pelosi excepted her cronies from Obamacare

    “One America burdens the earth much more than twenty
    Bangladeshes. This is a terrible thing to say in order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”
    – Jacques Cousteau, UNESCO Courier (Jacques, of course, with all his globe-trotting, was equivalent a zillion Bangladeshes, but he was “special.” As in Orwell’s comment that in the socialist worker’s paradise, we’ll all be equal, only some of us will be “more
    equal” than the others.

    “A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at
    the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. Atthe more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.”

    “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline
    would be ideal.”

    Nations contributor. Hey Ted! You volunteering to go first?

    “War and famine would not do. Instead, disease offered the most
    efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die if the
    population crisis is to be solved. AIDS is not an efficient killer because it is too slow. My favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world’s population is airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years. “We’ve got airborne diseases with 90
    percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that. “You know, the bird flu’s good, too. For everyone who survives, he will have to bury nine”
    – Dr. Eric Pianka University of Texas speaking on the topic of
    reducing the world’s population to an audience on population control.

    A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells, the population explosion is an uncontrolled
    multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.”
    – Stanford Professor Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb. Ehrlich is a classic nutcase. He predicted the world would end from global cooling in the 1970s – and if of course now a global warmer.
