Looking at the 2012 U.S. budget, Research!America concluded, "As federal funding for medical and health R&D remains effectively stagnant, other countries are rapidly and doggedly increasing their capacity. China, Japan, Singapore, Sweden, Mexico, the U.K. and Germany are among those accelerating investment in medical and health R&D."

In his best-selling book, "Chasing Life," (2007) Dr. Sanjay Gupta, chief medical correspondent for CNN, writes how Dr. Anthony Atala at Wake Forest University in Winston- Salem, N.C., made history "growing a new bladder using a patient's own cells" and became "the first scientist to grow a human organ in a laboratory and transplant it into a human." However, Dr. Gupta adds, "There is plenty of research still to be done before organs more complicated than the bladder are grown in the lab."

The promise is that "Growing a new heart or kidney or liver from stem cells would result in a new organ free of any risk of rejection," Dr. Gupta writes. He also writes of a coming time when "microscopic nanobots will navigate through our bloodstreams, combating pathogens, correcting DNA mutations, and reversing the aging process."

For now, though, President Obama is giving the Pentagon virtually everything it needs to launch wars of aggression, including funding for an estimated 800 military bases abroad---when all the other nations of the world combined have just 30. That overseas military empire, of course, is in addition to about 1,000 bases on our own soil. Mr. Obama has also authorized a $1 trillion outlay to make USA's nuclear arsenal deadlier, even though when initially campaigning for the White House he called for a nuclear-free world.

International legal authority Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois, Champaign, says

since 9/11/2001 the so-called National Institutes for Health (NIH) have been up to their eyeballs in death science work and could, as a tribute to George Orwell, appropriately be renamed the National Institutes of Death. "You cannot factually accept anything NIH/NID or the World Health Organization are telling you about Zika, Ebola, MERS, SARS, Anthrax, Smallpox, etc.," Boyle says, adding, "Caveat lector!" (Let the reader beware.)

Boyle, America's foremost legal authority on germ warfare, says, "Overall I have read a figure that there about 13,000 death scientists in America today doing dirty biowarfare work who perversely call themselves "life scientists." Doctor Mengele would be proud of them all! (Dr. Josef Mengele was a Nazi physician who performed inhuman medical experiments on concentration camp victims during the Hitler era.) Seventy years after World War II ended the Nazis have won."
