On May 15th a report in Cell, “Human Embryonic Stem Cells Derived by Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer” stated that for the first time the production of human embryonic stem cells (hESC) by the method of early embryo cloning via somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) was accomplished.
News that scientists had for the first time recovered stem cells from cloned human embryos prompted dire warnings from religious leaders who say the research crosses a moral red line and could lead to designer babies.
This approach, technically called "therapeutic cloning" means that in theory hESC could be made from any of us and be given back to us as a self or autologous transplant.
However, this advance is a very big step toward the other kind of human cloning: reproductive cloning. This what Obama had to say...

This DVD is 5 hours and covers the advance of the space war and new technologies coupled with the creation of a New World Order.
"Dangerous, profoundly wrong and has no place in our society..." are the words President Obama used to describe human cloning. Was there a covert meaning in this message.
CERN opens dimensions and seeks dark matter in space. A spiraling vortex of sapphire particles opens over Norway as Obama arrives to receive his Nobel Peace Prize. Mysterious missiles launch from coast to coast and the Space War ramps up with the X-37B, an automated military space shuttle and Space X launches the Dragon preparing to meet Robonaut 2 on the ISS.
Are we witnessing the rise of the technocratic elite?

Scientists have created more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories.
The hybrids have been produced secretively over the past three years by researchers looking into possible cures for a wide range of diseases.
Figures seen by the Daily Mail show that 155 admixed embryos, containing both human and animal genetic material, have been created since the introduction of the 2008 Human Fertilisation Embryology Act.
This legalized the creation of a variety of hybrids, including an animal egg fertilized by a human sperm; cybrids, in which a human nucleus is implanted into an animal cell; and chimeras, in which human cells are mixed with animal embryos.

The Human Cloning Prohibition Act of 2011 is passed in Minnesota. There are two kinds of uses for SCNT, he told the committee: one is to create a living, breathing human clone, also called œreproductive cloning, and another is to use SCNT for therapeutic cloning to create stem cell treatments for treating disease. The intent off the bill is to ban human cloning, Fishbach responded. I think what the doctor was describing in very scientific terms was either you clone a human to make a baby and implant it into a women or you clone a baby to use it in experiments.
She added, I think what we are trying to do here is to prevent a human from being created for experiments and reproduction.

Leader of the Russian Liberal Democrats Vladimir Zhirinovsky said cloning should be permitted in Russia and proposed cloning himself "for the nation's benefit." "Scientists should work, we should not be afraid. Cloning is a remedy for humanity... Let us grow people and take their organs to replace [those damaged],"
"We should clone clever, talented people, a list of people to be cloned should be created. We should have new Einsteins, Kurchatovs, Tsiolkovskys, Yesenins, Pushkins," he went on.
He said he personally would be happy to be cloned.

Egypt will soon reveal the results of DNA tests made on the world's most famous ancient king, the young Pharaoh Tutankhamun, to answer lingering mysteries over his lineage, the antiquities department said Sunday.
Speaking at a conference, archaeology chief Zahi Hawass said he would announce the results of the DNA tests and the CAT scans on Feb. 17. The results will be compared to those made of King Amenhotep III, who may have been Tutankamun's grandfather.
The effort is part of a wider program to check the DNA of hundreds of mummies to determine their identities and family relations. The program could help determine Tutankhamun's family lineage, which has long been a source of mystery.
The identity of Tut's parents is not firmly known. Many experts believe he is the son of Akhenaten. A $5 million DNA lab was created at the Egyptian Museum, with funding from the Discovery Channel. "We have set up a DNA laboratory at the basement of the Egyptian Museum and another at Cairo University's Faculty of Medicine where two teams of distinguished scientists worked. Each team worked separately in its own laboratory away from the other, and both were assisted by German scientists who specialize in studying DNA."
Previously, exclusive right to DNA sample of the pharaohs was forbidden for reasons of National Security.
As was reported earlier, King Tut's penis was found and was "well developed."

National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins announced today that the first 13 human embryonic stem (ES) cell lines have been approved for funding under the expanded policy outlined by President Barack Obama in an executive order last March. He said another 20 are likely to be added to the list any day now, but the final list could top 100.

President Barack Obama established a new presidential bioethics council. The Executive Order states that "at least one and not more than three of whom may be bioethicists or scientists drawn from the executive branch, as designated by the President." This may feature advisers who could push his decision to force taxpayers to fund embryonic stem cell research even further. Executive Order 13521 was only published in the Federal Register on Monday, November 30, however.

"We will develop strict guidelines (for stem cell research), which we will rigorously enforce, because we cannot ever tolerate misuse or abuse," Mr. Obama said. "And we will ensure that our government never opens the door to the use of cloning for human reproduction. It is dangerous, profoundly wrong, and has no place in our society, or any society."

A technical breakthrough has enabled scientists to create for the first time dozens of cloned embryos from adult rhesus macaque monkeys, raising the prospect of the same procedure being used to make cloned human embryos.
Attempts to clone human embryos for research have been dogged by technical problems and controversies over fraudulent research and questionable ethics. But the new technique promises to revolutionize the efficiency by which scientists can turn human eggs into cloned embryos.

President Bush issued the first veto of his five-year-old administration yesterday, rejecting Congress's bid to lift funding restrictions on human embryonic stem cell research.
Joined by children produced from what he called "adopted" frozen embryos, Bush said taxpayers should not support research on surplus embryos at fertility clinics, even if they offer possible medical breakthroughs and are slated for disposal.
The vetoed bill "would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others," the president said, as babies cooed and cried behind him. "It crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect." Each child on the stage, he said, "began his or her life as a frozen embryo that was created for in vitro fertilization but remained unused after the fertility treatments were complete. . . These boys and girls are not spare parts."

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger urges the United States Senate to pass H.R. 810, the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2005, which was passed by the House of Representatives earlier this year, and S. 1520, legislation sponsored by Senator Feinstein and Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) that would ban human reproductive cloning, but allow promising embryonic stem cell research to go forward.
