Sometimes you have to think that scientists don’t ever read science fiction, and thus have not even contemplated all the things that could go wrong when they do something like creating 20 million mosquitos in a laboratory, infecting them with a bacteria, and then releasing those mosquitos in Fresno, California.

First of all, did you even know that Google had a bio-lab?  They do and it’s called Verily. Which, I dunno, sounds rather biblical. “Verily, I say unto you…we are the purveyors of all that is The Truth.”

But I digress.

Verily plans to create 20 million mosquitoes and infect them with a bacteria in their laboratories. Then, the mosquitos will be released on the unsuspecting populace of Fresno, California, a city with over half a million people.

Why? Because, Zika.

Remember last year’s Zika scare that prompted the government to spray harmful chemicals all over citizens in Florida? That terrified a whole bunch of pregnant women and made them worry that their babies would be born with microcephaly?

Apparently, the Aedes aegypti mosquito that is thought to carry the Zika virus is prevalent in Fresno. However prevalent these mosquitos may be, there is only one confirmed case of Zika, and this woman’s partner had been traveling.

So, anyway, in a project wittily named DeBug, Verily has “created” a whole bunch of mosquitos and infected the males with a bacteria called Wolbachia. When the male mate with female mosquitos, the resulting eggs can’t hatch. And by the way, they did a smaller release of franken-mosquitos last year in Fresno. (See? says Verily soothingly. We already did this once without you knowing about it and nothing bad happened. Don’t worry, you silly mortal.)

In 2016, CMAD and MosquitoMate piloted the first-ever U.S. release of male Aedes aegypti mosquitoes with Wolbachia in Fresno County. Our 2017 collaboration represents a more than 25x increase in the release efforts, with a total of one million non-biting sterile male mosquitoes released weekly, made possible by the automated mass rearing and sex-sorting processes developed at Verily. Additionally, our software algorithms and on-the-ground release devices will allow us to distribute the sterile male mosquitoes in an even and targeted way throughout Fresno’s mosquito season. We believe that these advancements could have a meaningful impact on what is traditionally a very labor-intensive process and could reduce the number of biting Aedes aegypti in Fresno County.

Theoretically, the Wolbachia virus is harmless to humans, male mosquitos don’t bite, and whether Fresno residents like it or not, they’ll be subject to the release of a million of these franken-mosquitoes per week for the next 20 weeks.

The project, which has already rather quietly begun, is turning the area into a test facility without the consent of residents. Trucks will be driving through the city releasing swarms of millions of infected male mosquitos in Fresno.

Verily says:

For the Debug team at Verily, moving our work from the laboratory to the field is not only an important milestone for our group of biologists, engineers, and automation experts, but it’s also a critical step in bringing our long-term vision to reality. Field studies allow us to test our discoveries and technologies in challenging, real-world conditions and collect the necessary evidence to bring them to a broader scale. We hope to demonstrate success with Debug Fresno that will benefit the local communities working with us on this study and later other communities globally where Zika, dengue, and chikungunya are endemic. We are excited to take the first step in that journey today by bringing these technologies to the field. (source)

Here’s some more information about the project in this propaganda informational video.

Does anyone else think that this sounds like the first chapter in a novel by the likes of Michael Crichton or Stephen King? (For information about protecting yourself from mosquitos that doesn’t include the potential for some kind of mosquito apocalypse, read this.)

I can see quite a lot of potential unfavorable variables here. Just off the top of my head, here are just some of the things that could go wrong:

  • What if the mosquitos are sorted incorrectly? Do you really think that out of 20 million mosquitos, nary a biting female will get through the sorting process?
  • What if the Wolbachia mutates? Something that is not harmful now could morph into something far worse than Zika.
  • What if scientists believe that this gives them innate permission to conduct “field studies” of other things? Oh…wait. Apparently, they already feel they don’t require our permission to turn our neighborhoods into test facilities.

It’s like they don’t even consider these things. Or, if they do, then the risks are worth taking. Maybe this will be harmless, but the fact remains that this city is being turned into a “controlled environment” for Verily without the consent of citizens.

And that is not okay.

  • …makes me wonder what else “they” are doing that we don’t know about. It’s a bit unnerving!

  • Nothing new about this. The government released infected mosquitoes over Punta Gorda, FL in the early 50s. Shortly thereafter the first cases of chronic fatigue syndrome were reported locally.

  • Nothing like violating informed consent laws, both international and national. These laws came into effect after Nazi experiments. It looks like we regressed just a bit. This is really not the first time Kalifornia has been a test bed. San Francisco has been strayed with biological agents care of our government before with a “harmless” bug.

    • Google’s “Verily” Mosquitos
      July 16, 2018. I have been attacked by this new, sterile male????, mosquito for the last two years here in Tarpey (Fresno/Clovis). They must have mixed in a few biting females. These mosquitoes bite at any hour of the day. Not just during sunset and later like mosquitos in the past. They are shorter, and bite mostly at the elbows, wrists, ankles. It makes working in the yard a nightmare any time of the daylight hours now. Why others don’t complain is strange, unless people have stopped going outside.

  • You want a quote from the bible about this? The fifth trumpet

    And out of the smoke, locusts descended on the earth, and they were given power like that of the scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. The locusts were not given power to kill them, but only to torment them for five months, and their torment was like the stinging of a scorpion. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, but death will escape them.

  • In the end – man thinks that trying to play G-d is what it is all about. Well, we all need to realize that man playing G-d is not the same as G-d being G-d. Therefore, I will just allow G-d to take care of business as G-d always does, and be happy with the end result G-d chooses.

    If G-d allows man to kill off man, then the men who played G-d will pay the ultimate price. On the other hand the people who were damaged or killed by the men who played G-d, might just get a Free Ride on the same train I have paid a lot to get my ticket. I am fine with that because I only need to take care of the way I live my life and I am the only one who can speak for myself when I meet G-d later on.

    Should be take note and do the things we can do that are progressive regarding these intrusions into our lives? Surely the answer is YES. But, there is a formula on how to do these things in correctness and those of us that are mature, need to make sure others learn and embrace these formulas so as not to react like spoiled children.

    In conclusion: Man has shown very clearly over 1,000s of years that Mankind wants to dominate or destroy Mankind.
    Why? Because too many people do not understand the “Meaning of Life” and only want to Feel Warm and Fuzzy and when they don’t, they look at all the wrong reasons to do all the wrong things.

    Will mankind learn the Truth before it is too late? NO NO NO

    Will some of mankind learn the Truth and live through the insanity that exists and will continue to exist? YES YES YES

    If you are in the NO NO NO group, I am truly sorry for you. If you are in the YES Group then continue doing what is correct to do in the eyes of G-d. Your rewards are waiting for you in the Great Future that belongs to you.

  • What about the food chain…does the bacteria affect the mosquito eaters? Bats etc?

    I’m so tired of these people.

  • I believe they or another group did this or a similar experiment on Key West last summer. And they tried this also in Brazil, although, again, not sure same group doing this. And apparently to little effect, good or bad.
    There was legislation passed recently where experiments can be performed on people without their consent or knowledge, if it is felt the experiments are for “the public good.” Sounds very Orwellian to me.
    I had seen several of your concerns about things that could go wrong expressed prior to the previous experiments. And the fact we have YET to see that happen does not mean it cannot happen. My experience has been, on observing when people try to play God, is that although they seem to think they can do better than God, they usually fail and fail big time with unintended consequences that are hard, if not impossible, to correct.
    Oh, and there is still very little actual data relating the Zika virus to microcephalic birth defects. However the other diseases that the same mosquito can cause are MUCH more serious and are starting to spread in this country, often brought in with all our unvetted illegal immigration from south of the border, where the diseases are much more commonplace. The mosquitoes are here, and when they bite people harboring the viruses and then bite others, that is how those diseases spread in this country.

  • And who exactly gave these people the authority to do this?

    One summer, a friend/landscaper, and long-time member of the Windansea Surf Club in La Jolla, used a load of clean dirt and with the help of many, he rebuilt a couple of ‘gullets’ that were eroding the very low-slope, 20′ embankment, so the ice plant and other indigenous plants could regrow and save the embankment, and keep mud off the beach.

    A cop went by, stopped him, the City came out – about 20 yahoos, and Bob had to REMOVE it all and was fined $1500.

    And people used to laugh at me when I called them Skynet, 10 years ago….

  • The Libtards in CACA will do what they are told. As long as they are hating our president and embracing un-regulated immigration, sucking up to the Communist Agenda “Mooo -vie Stars” – they will get what they deserve.

  • I heard a theory that this was how the zita virus got started and am beginning to believe it, especially after hearing about the Bill Gates flu shot that was used to sterilize women in Africa.

    The governments of the world and their elitist globalists have no right to use people as guinea pigs. They aren’t any better than anyone else. They’re just richer and think of themselves as demi-gods.

  • What about the weaponized ticks created on Plum Island and released along the New England coastline? That worked out fine, didn’t it?

  • Sounds like the complications with pregnant women should be blamed on this. This is bat S*** crazy.

  • I would bet that the more immediate problem would have to do with all the creatures that eat mosquitoes in order to live. You know- fish, frogs, lizards, birds, bats, etc. And when they get sick, the bigger animals like hawks, snakes, coyotes, cats, etc will likely be brought into the chain…

  • It’s the old WHACK-A-MOLE thing. Pounds something and another rears its ugly head. So, I have an idea they will get rid of the mosquitoes and something else just as worse or more so will take its place.

    Watch & Learn…..

  • If the california governor and county officials and city officials don’t give a damn — not likely they’ll oppose the Great God Google — then it will motivate good people to flee to other states and hasten the demise of california, which is a positive result.

  • This is wrong and dangerous! What are these people thinking?

    This is on par with the recent decision in Japan for the Fukushima plant to release 770,000 tons of highly radioactive water into the ocean.

    “They say that it will be safe because the ocean is large so it will be diluted.”

  • Mosquito infestations accompany Fresno’s portion of the central valley water scam. City of Fresno uses fake work crews for tearing out / replacing / relocating sewer and water lines entailing ongoing discharging of deadly, disease-carrying sewage (with trail of horrors that also follow.) Once the City ties their altered lines in – they have records, “historic” aerial views, etc. altered and deny all knowledge and/or responsibility.

  • Well as you say S.F. is infected, yes they are! They are a sanctuary city, a crap hole of people, bitch about the central valley that puts food in their ignorant pie hole, send farmers water to the ocean, shall I go on?. Our state capitol is supposed to be Sacramento, but it seems like S.F. an L.A. make the libtard rules.

  • I guess the Fresno County CMAD believes in the old saw that it’s better to ask forgiveness than to ask for permission.

    This is another one of those cases where it is presumed that the county has the authority to do this, but who gave them that authority? No individual or group of individuals can delegate that authority to the County of Fresno, because no individual or group of individuals has that inherent authority themselves.

    What could possibly go wrong? Man’s hubris is without limit, apparently. We don’t even know what we don’t know, but we think we know everything, we can control for any unforeseen circumstance. Like politicians attempting to solve a problem, the idea of unintended consequences just never enters the minds of these people.

  • It would have been far cheaper, safer, and more efficacious to release large numbers of dragonflies instead, because they love to eat mosquito larvae and are pretty nice to look at as well.

  • Around 1990 a medfly outbreak in CA was stopped by releasing millions of sterilized males. Seems to me a far simpler approach like that one would work here, and without any potential “Wolbachian” side effects.

    Since this is Crazifornia, I’m surprised Planned Parenthood and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Skeeters (PETS) aren’t railing against this egregious violation of the critters’ reproductive rights.

    To answer Daisy’s question regarding females being inadvertently mixed in with males: Today’s microscopes are tremendously powerful, to the point the skeeters were heard complaining about the privacy violation. 🙂

  • If my experience reading novels and watching movies is in any effect true, this will lead to a mutation of the virus, where the mosquitoes are killed off, but the disease works it’s way up the food chain to infect humans and start the zombie apocalypse.

    So be prepared for the dead to walk ????????????????

  • Whaaat! Not a surprise really but still unnerving to be living in a science fiction reality. My state is not far enough from california to feel safe.
    Thanks daisy I always appreciate your newsfeed.

  • I wonder as I read this if you know of the larger plan and are leaving it out to feel safe or meet publishing criteria, or if you don’t know and are making this comment from the basis of your lucid human who sees the situation in a Right way in terms of the relationship we should be having with each other that is about causing no harm, living and letting live.

    I find your commentary spot on from the rational mind of a feeling person. With a bigger context that is evidenced through an endless supply of records including documents, conversations, film, books, confessions, and such, coupled with the biggest evidence of all, being the shape we are actually in, this mosquito speaks to the eugenics plan, the world domination plan, the transhumanism plan that comes out of through the administrative structure for the world of corporations (including people), assembled and organized to enslave and experiment on all of us while raping and pillaging our planet of its resources and sustainability.

    These are not theories but facts that any one of us who takes the time and the responsibility to research can verify for ourselves. This is what is most widely known as The New World Order and it’s time for our collective awakening to bear its fruit.

  • 02/15/2018 I live in Fresno/Clovis, Calif. Now the “sterile” mosquitos have bred, and are twice as aggressive as the native mosquitos. They also bite/puncture/pester you all day long, not just at sunset like the native. A living hell when I’m gardening now.

  • I live in Fresno, CA . In 2017 (and since) my family, and countless others, have not been able to enjoy their backyards at night. That was the best part of Fresno summers. I have just learned about this crazy experiment, today. What a clusterfuck of an idea (if it is truly well meaning). I’m sure it is not well meaning, however, and there is an agenda other than what is being told. I am eventually moving out of California, and this is just another reason. I cannot believe they did this without our knowledge or permission. There will be many people thrown into the “lake of fire” over this issue.
