This very unusual article was passed on to me by Mr.K.L., a regular reader here, and I had to include it in this week's blog scheduling. In fact, when I read it, I immediately moved it into the "finals" pile without even putting it into the "semi-finals" pile, because its contents are so unusual. There is, it seems a new technology of rapid medical testing of all sorts, from a mere drop of blood.

The catch is, however, who's on the board of the company doing the testing:

Meet Theranos, Inc. – The Blood Testing Company with Henry Kissinger and a Cadre of Military and Political “Elite” on its Board

Let's look at those people again:

"So who could argue with that story right? A bright young prodigy emerges from Silicon Valley, drops out of Stanford and ten years later develops a product that could disrupt the healthcare industry for the better. So what’s the catch? Well, as the Wall Street Journal itself noted later on in that very same article:

''Ms. Holmes declines to discuss Theranos’s future plans, though one may speculate. There could be military applications in the battlefield, especially given the numerous framed American flags across the Theranos office and the presence on its corporate board of retired Gens. Jim Mattis and Gary Roughead, former Defense Secretary Bill Perry and former Secretary of State George Shultz.

"It was this paragraph that raised a red flag for me back then, but I more or less brushed it off and forgot about the story. Until today, when I came across an article by Robert Wenzel titled, What is Henry Kissinger and Gang Up To Now? It was here that I realized there are far more shady members of the board that was initially reported. We can now add to the list:

  • Henry Kissinger
  • Richard Kovacevich- who served as the Chief Executive Officer of Wells Fargo & Company from 1998–2007 and Chairman of the Board from 2001-2009.
  • William Perry- Former Secretary of Defense
  • Riley P. Bechtel -Chairman of the Board and a Director of Bechtel Group, Inc
  • Bill Frist- Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader
  • Samuel Nunn- Served as a United States Senator from Georgia for twenty-four years and as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee

The question is, why would such people be involved backing a new medical testing technology?

Well, as you can imagine, this article stimulated high octane speculations of all sorts. Suppose, for example, that this technology were integrated with genome sequencing technology such as to allow almost immediate determination of where an individual came from, i.e., what y-chromosomal and mitochondrial haplogroups one came from. If one were determined to track a certain segment of a population, or, for that matter, wanted to find out if "anyone else" was on this planet who looked like us, walked like us, talked like us, but wasn't, really, "us," then such a technology would be very useful to such a program. It would permit one to "look" without appearing to look. Similarly, such a technology could be very beneficial to covert bio-weapons projects, and a host of other things.

Couple this with an extraordinary data-mining and electronic surveillance operation, and one has a database capability that boggles the mind. And really, when you think about it, isn't it odd that the NSA located its data processing center in Utah, home of a religious group well-known for its genealogical fascinations and database?

See you on the flip side...

    The more genuine concept of being “good” (and “beautiful” too if we hark back to Plato) has, at least in western consumer society, been replaced by “it’s good for you”… usually followed by “according to the latest research…”.
    Now what if – just to worry the data mining-eugenics-oligarchical crowd – those “odd” DNA traits cropped up right in their ranks?

    My guess would be to see the effects of what
    herbicides or pesticides are in the population
    as a whole. Think “Roundup” or Monsanto.

    Or a way to get enough information about your DNA that a microwave weapon could be custom tuned to rattle your specific DNA.

    I see a “Bechtel” in the lineup. Just a few years back (2006-2011?), a headhunter who specializes in placing Executive level Administrative Assistants wanted to put me forward for the “Best Listing She Ever Had,” (Bay Area). I had to wait over the weekend for her contract to be signed. I was SO EXCITED….only to find out that the position was for Admin #3 for Stephen Bechtel Jr. (Bechtel is headquartered in San Francisco).

    For the good or the bad, being me, I blurted: “I can’t work for HIM! He’s Bohemian Grove!”

    An interesting conversation took place (she liked me and respected me and my work), but she was grateful I was honest about me and the lack of “fit.”

    I think it got her to thinking, but not sure how exactly, as about two years later I saw that she was a contributor on a book written about “Executive Assistants of the Illuminati,” or somesuch title. I had to laugh. I KNOW that I was the one who even put that into her head, but here we were just 2-3 years later and she was being tapped as someone who could connect those “admins” to the author.

    I have NO idea what she thinks NOW! 🙂

    But I am glad I was real about who I was. The other factor was simple safety: I had worked downtown SF, near the Bechtel building, often enough to know that the entire block was too-often blocked off with police tape due to anomymous “bomb threats.” Many people told me of hidden levels and tunnels beneath that building. They controlled that entire block (well beyond the limits of the building, itself) and who knows how much.

    No regrets…

    What an all star cast of deviates and blood suckers (pun intended).
    I don’t know what they are up to, BUT, you can just imagine that skullduggery isn’t far off the mark. So one wonders if this new medical procedure is for the betterment of mankind, then it’s OK right. But you put these parasites on the board, and you have a company that is a “money making” concern.

    Oops. Probably confusing him with Howard Baker. Never mind.

    Didn’t Sam Nunn die a month or so ago?

    Shades of Brave New World or a Specter Is Haunting Texas. But these idiots should remember The Time Machine and what the Morlocks used the Eloi for food.

    Ms Theranos seems plenty smart, but these concepts of diagnosis, and treatment, all seem limited to a chemical understanding of life.

  10. Aridzonan_13 on August 6, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    I was just about to goto Theranos and get some blood work done.. Not gonna happen. I’ve got zero confidence that the above mentioned board members have Joe Public’s best interest as a core value. Track records count.

    Thanks Mucho..

    I see Dr. Henry Kissinger is leading off with quite a line-up off red hot devils. I wonder how their top secret Pod production line is coming? They’re having PR problem with a local Dr. Miles Bennell.

    A couple years ago National Geographic catalog had an offer where you could send in and get your blood tested to see where you came from. At first I thought that would be interesting, then just as quickly thought maybe they were looking for something, so I didn’t do it. I don’t know if it was related to this organization, but apparently ‘they’ are looking for something.

    Do you remember hearing about the Paracas Indians of Peru, the ones with the elongated skulls, and how the dna test results showed strains with no known associations with any other humans or animals?Maybe there are remnants of these, or similar, tribes still alive with recessive genes so they don’t look different anymore, and they want samples of their dna.

  13. swimsinocean on August 6, 2014 at 10:41 am

    Well they have the bones of our identities, so to speak, so it follows that they will want the blood. What might follow after that is making my hair stand on end.

    The collective age of that band of hoary psychopaths rivals Methusalah. My guess is that Ms. Holmes has found the Elixer of Life, and we’ll never get rid of them. Sigh.

    Podcast of Elizabeth Holmes, President, CEO, and Founder of Theranos, discussing her decision to leave Stanford to launch a biotech company, and what she’s learned about raising capital and attracting top talent.

    “Couple this with an extraordinary data-mining and electronic surveillance operation, and one has a database capability that boggles the mind. And really, when you think about it, isn’t it odd that the NSA located its data processing center in Utah, home of a religious group well-known for its genealogical fascinations and database?”

    The question is sound, except that if you actually hire those people in Utah to find the genealogy of your unknown lineage they can’t always get any further than you can on the internet… but you find that out $3000 later. The point is that we are all genetically unique and once “they” have a DNA record of “us” via blood analysis, then we are reduced to a number in the database, that then sort us all into groups. It is logical that they could be looking for the not-so terrestrials but it is mind boggling to think that complex mathematics has put us all in the vulnerable position of being ultimately under complete control, that they could easily erase whole groups of us via some genome specific virus, just for starters to this conversation.

    Definitely things that make you go hmmmmm…
