...Just when you thought today's world couldn't possibly become any zanier or crazy, people start sending you articles about the CIA's interest in the cosmetics industry...yes, you read that correctly, the cosmetics industry. Indeed, so many people sent me versions of this article that my initial reaction to dismiss it as yet more bizarre internet conspiracy-vamping was brought up short. Consider this one, that, were he still alive, would delight the cockles of Allen Dulles' black blood-puming mechanism(using the word "heart" in the same sentence as "Allen Dulles" seems somewhat oxymoronic):

CIA’s Venture Capital Arm Is Funding Skin Care Products That Collect DNA

Here's the crux of the article:

KINCENTIAL SCIENCES, a company with an innovative line of cosmetic products marketed as a way to erase blemishes and soften skin, has caught the attention of beautybloggers on YouTube, Oprah’s lifestyle magazine, and celebrity skin care professionals. Documents obtained by The Intercept reveal that the firm has also attracted interest and funding from In-Q-Tel, the venture capital arm of the Central Intelligence Agency.

The previously undisclosed relationship with the CIA might come as some surprise to a visitor to the website of Clearista, the main product line of Skincential Sciences, which boasts of a “formula so you can feel confident and beautiful in your skin’s most natural state.”

Though the public-facing side of the company touts a range of skin care products, Skincential Sciences developed a patented technology that removes a thin outer layer of the skin, revealing unique biomarkers that can be used for a variety of diagnostic tests, including DNA collection.

The article goes on to point out that In-Q-Tel was promoted by CIA director George Tennant, and then we are told that Kincential Sciences, the company behind the skin-care skin-removal products, doesn't really know why the CIA is so interested in the company nor what the motivation is behind its interest:

Our company is an outlier for In-Q-Tel,” Russ Lebovitz, the chief executive of Skincential Sciences, said during an interview with The Intercept. He conceded that the relationship might make for “an unusual and interesting story,” but said, “If there’s something beneath the surface, that’s not part of our relationship and I’m not directly aware. They’re interested here in something that can get easy access to biomarkers.”

Still, Lebovitz claimed he has limited knowledge of why In-Q-Tel selected his firm.

I can’t tell you how everyone works with In-Q-Tel, but they are very interested in doing things that are pure science,” Lebovitz said. The CIA fund approached his company, telling him the fund shares an interest in looking at DNA extraction using the method pioneered by Skincential Sciences, according to Lebovitz.

Beyond that, Lebovitz said he was unsure of the intent of the CIA’s use of the technology, but the fund was “specifically interested in the diagnostics, detecting DNA from normal skin.” He added, “There’s no better identifier than DNA, and we know we can pull out DNA.”

Really!?!?  Well I'm going to suggest some high octane specualtion here. For one thing, the CIA's interest is perfectly understandable  even if only from the rather mundane context of the "war on terror". Having a quick easy-to-use adaptation of this technology to collect DNA at, say, airports, ports of entry, and so on, would be a perfect monitoring mechanism when coupled with the new on-the-spot DNA sequencing technologies we've also heard that is being developed. This technology would allow sequencing on the spot, without having to send samples to far off labs and wait days for the results. For tracking known or suspected terrorists or other criminals (or anyone else for that matter), such a technology would be an almost incalculable boon to the intelligence community, particularly when coupled with the already existing and pervasive electronic surveillance mechanisms.

But let me crawl wait out onto the end of the twig of high octane speculation here: such a technology and its widespread dissemination throughout the population using cosmetics would also seem to be a convenient way to collect DNA samples for far more sinister purposes, such as genetically-based bioweapons development. One could even go so far as to envision technologies planted in cosmetics or other "healthcare" products designed to implant nano-tracking devices that would be activated when they came into contact with a pre-programmed genetic signature.

The point is, let your mind roam freely here, and imagine what the folks at Langley and the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency (DARPA) might be 'brainstorming' over their beers and cigars in the drawing room. The final step, of course, would be remote sensing and sequencing of DNA, and that, I submit, is what they're really after, and that this is but a "step along the way," a way-station in the technology tree to that development.

See you on the flip side...

    Watching t.v. tonight was a new ad for “cologuard” which is a home DNA stool test for cancer and pre-cancer. Order now and you receive a free t-shirt. Never a cure is found, just new ways to collect DNr, make money and scare sheeple.

    I think they’re looking for non-humans too, but I also think that most people on the planet now have smartphones, so the swipe technology would be sufficient to find them.

    I suspect that the cosmetic technology will be aimed against women and their ability to have babies, enabling the transhuman agenda to make another leap forward.

    Since higher levels at the CIA aren’t really concerned about catching terrorists and such, I posit a different reason for research “specifically interested in the diagnostics, detecting DNA from normal skin.” They are interested in casting a wide net, looking for someone/something…

    I can think of several ‘groups’ worth monitoring: If ESP-ish abilities have unique DNA traces, this would be a way of collecting your next ‘operatives’. Or their kids. If there is a real Anunnaki bloodline, this could either scout for them or look for ‘lost’ offspring. If there are look-alike aliens amongst us, this would be a way to ‘fingerprint’ them. Even hybrids. Might even be a good reptilian-spotter, if they can ‘mask’ themselves as the literature suggests. In a broader sense, this might be good to track ANY being that can ‘mask’ itself to ordinary humans…

      I agree. Go back to my contention that the emergent infectious diseases, such as Lyme disease, seem to hit a certain personality type with particular genetics, the strongest. The same group of people with bipolar and schizophrenic tendencies, that it has been suggested can observe multiple dimensions at one time.

      • Katie Ball on April 12, 2016 at 2:34 pm

        Seems like Lyme has been around for a long time:

        • Guygrr on April 12, 2016 at 7:38 pm

          Yeah, that story is frequently cited by people that deny the “Lyme conspiracy”. I’ll admit that it’s possible the disease has been around for a very long time, but only 60% of the current Borrelia Burgdorferi genome was present. The real question is, where did today’s other 40% come from? One can’t escape the fact that the Nazi expert in vector borne mosquito illnesses was employed at the lab on Plum Island, a few miles off the coast of Lyme, Connecticut. The researcher, whose name escapes me at the moment, was an expert in malaria, a parasitic infection. Meanwhile one of Lyme’s most frequent co-infections, babesia, is a close cousin to malaria. When one couples this to the ideology espoused in the Madrid Circular, the coincidences begin to add up.

          Katie I believe you were the person in the recent vidchat that discussed her experiences with pyroluria. If so, shoot me a message on my profile. I know mold toxicity has become a big issue in Australia of late and both share the same symptoms, or rather pyroluria is a manifestation of mold toxicity.

            sorry, i hit report a comment while trying to hit reply.

            hey daniel, is there a way to unreport a comment?

            anyway, thank you guygrr. makes sense

            seen anything on paul stamets?

            he’s done great stuff at fungi perfecti

            irony is he’s so good, darpa jumped on him with both financial feet

  4. Roger on April 10, 2016 at 6:54 pm

    So that’s why I keep getting approached by all these strange beautiful women who all seem to just want to give me an affectionate kiss on the cheek.

    • Milton Zentmyer on April 13, 2016 at 9:25 am

      yes, Roger you lucky guy you..!

    • zendogbreath on April 13, 2016 at 1:48 pm

      how come i get all the cute old ladies that just wanna pinch my cheeks too hard?

    A new technology that might interest the CIA for disguising their agents in the field. So they can more easily blend in in missions in non white nations of interest when they can’t find a local to use. A new technology to use in their genocidal war against sub-humans and useless eaters like the rest of us.

    The CIA”s DNA is to have Its skin in any & all games.
    It makes gaming the system innately easy.
    Not only going remote…
    ..but getting under your skin remotely.

    Reminds one of the storyline of “Men in Black”. Terrorists and criminals may not be the only “people” they may be looking to find. The insanity of the “control” meme is truly reaching epic proportions.
    More of Bill Gates “If we do a really good job with vaccines” nonsense.
