U.S. purges Chinese cancer researchers

This is important, I sense, and some more brighter and more energetic soul than I will read the whole thing (passed along in email today), I hope.

The U.S. Is Purging Chinese Cancer Researchers From Top Institutions

The NIH and the FBI are targeting ethnic Chinese scientists, including U.S. citizens, searching for a cancer cure. Here’s the first account of what happened to Xifeng Wu.

  1. To the point:

    “In the same way racial profiling of African Americans as criminals may create the crime of ‘driving while black,’ ” wrote Kim, who practices law at the Houston office of Greenberg Traurig, “profiling of Asian Americans as spies … may be creating a new crime: ‘researching while Asian.’ ”

    Thanks, Trump, just what your alcoholic, chain smoking, pain killer addicted base needs: another ethnic cleansing.

  2. Love the FBI’s logic.

    Any sharing of research is of course “pre-patented material.”

    “This pre-patented material is the antecedent to creating intellectual property. In essence, what you’re doing is stealing other people’s ideas.”

    Mean the FBI DIRECTOR IS putting the FBI in Big Pharma’s pocket.

    1. Talking to some folks about this. One of them asserted that every cancer fighting drug is patented.
      Capitalism at its best.
