The World Economic Forum has instructed electors in the U.S. to not certify the upcoming presidential election if Trump wins.

According to the WEF-funded publication The Atlantic, Democrats must prepare to refuse to certifiy the 2024 election in November.

The WEF mouthpiece put out an article Friday titled, “How Democrats Could Disqualify Trump If the Supreme Court Doesn’t“, outlining a strategy for Democrats to defy the election results if they don’t get their way.

Infowars.com reports: The editorial lamented the Supreme Court’s recent hearing on the 14th Amendment over Colorado’s unprecedented ruling to remove Trump from the 2024 ballot, and claimed Democrats may have to find another way to stop Trump outside the democratic process.

A young mother’s life has been turned upside down in the wake of receiving her Moderna COVID-19 booster shot, which has left her paralyzed from the neck down, The Canadian Independent reported.

Kayla Pollock, a 37-year-old from Mount Albert, Ontario, has had her vibrant life of motherhood and community involvement brought to a sudden halt due to what doctors have diagnosed as a severe vaccine-related reaction.

Kayla, who suffered an abusive childhood, had overcome her past to find joy in her work as a behavioral trainer for exotic animals and later as an educational assistant. The single mother, known for her active lifestyle, was compelled to get vaccinated to ensure she could continue visiting her father in his long-term care facility.

Google’s public apology after its Gemini artificial intelligence (AI) produced historically inaccurate images and refused to show pictures of White people has led to questions about potential racial bias in other big tech chatbots.

Gemini, formerly known as Google Bard, is one of many multimodal large language models (LLMs) currently available to the public. The human-like responses offered by these LLMs can change from user to user.

Based on contextual information, the language and tone of the prompter, and training data used to create the AI responses, each answer can be different even if the question is the same.

Fox News Digital tested the AI chatbots Gemini, OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Microsoft’s Copilot and the Meta AI to determine potential shortcomings in their ability to generate images and written responses.

Below are the prompts used on the chatbots and the responses received from the AIs of the world’s largest and most influential tech companies.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis gave her “Special Prosecutor” Nathan Wade more authority behind-the-scenes in the run-up and during the Trump case in Georgia than previously known, a new report indicates.

According to multiple people who spoke exclusively to Breitbart News, after Fulton County prosecutor Fani Willis was elected in November 2020, Nathan Wade “made the decisions to hire or fire” staff in the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.

“Wade is a prosecutor on the Trump case and he selected the office employees,” one source said.

The inside sources, who were familiar with the “corrupt” district attorney’s office, said that Wade oversaw a transition team of ten to twelve individuals who conducted interviews and evaluations of employees to vet them for loyalty and reliability after Willis’ election in November 2020.

What happens to a society when the number of crazy people surpasses the number of normal people?  Unfortunately, I think that we aren’t too far away from finding out.  A survey that was conducted late last year discovered that 90 percent of Americans believe that we are experiencing a mental health crisis right now.  Tens of millions of Americans are currently taking pills for their mental or emotional health, and the number of Americans that are killing themselves just keeps going higher and higher with each passing year.  But numbers certainly aren’t necessary to prove that the level of crazy in our society has reached heights never seen before.  All you have to do to prove that our society is descending into an abyss of insanity is to go out into the streets.

Moscow will respond in kind if the West goes through with threats to confiscate Russian assets blocked abroad, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov warned in an interview with RIA Novosti published on Monday. He noted that Western states themselves still have assets in Russia that could be jeopardized if the frozen funds are tapped.

“This is not a question for us, we are following the decisions of Western countries,” Siluanov stated. “We have frozen no less [of Western funds]. Any actions with our assets will receive a symmetrical response.”

Western countries have blocked an estimated $300 billion in assets belonging to the Russian central bank since the start of the Ukraine conflict in February 2022.

The UK and US have recently demanded an outright seizure of those funds in order to aid the government in Kiev, whereas the EU has been more cautious, opting instead for a plan to seize the interest earned from the assets held at the clearinghouse Euroclear. Many European countries have warned that an outright confiscation of the funds would reflect badly on the Western financial system and erode trust in the euro.

President Joe Biden’s appearance before the nation’s governors at a black tie event on Sunday was an unmitigated disaster from start to finish.

At the National Governors Association Winter Meeting, Biden humiliated himself — and by extension, the office the presidency — by constantly botching historical quotes and being unable to correctly identify some of the most powerful world leaders.

One of the most embarrassing moments came when the hyper-partisan Biden complained about “bitter” politics and then invoked Lincoln’s “better angels of our nature” quote.

Interstate 15. Headed north from Salt Lake to Wyoming. A truck stop in Idaho. Poverty, poor education, meth, opioids, lack of opportunity, hopelessness, who knows. Walking human wrecks. The old store manager mostly deaf. A kind kid with dead eyes relayed my order, yelling into her ear. Hi skinny arms, homemade tattoos, blurry blue ink. The same thing you see in northeast Vermont, rural New Hampshire. Backwater stops across America. And it’s not that we’re sending their tax dollars abroad for wars and foreign aid, those folks pay next to nothing, it’s just that we’re not taking care of our people.

Overall: “It codifies your culture, your society’s intelligence, your common sense, your history - you own your own data,” said NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang, shamelessly talking his book, encouraging global governments to each develop their own sovereign AI infrastructure. “You cannot allow that to be done by other people.” NVIDIA GAAP earnings jumped 765% year-on-year. No one had ever seen something like this for a company of its size. But of course, no one has ever seen something that combines elements of the space race, the nuclear arms race, and a race to create a super-human species. In all history, there has never been a race of this magnitude. And in a rapidly changing world that is becoming digitized, it may even be that this is what the early stages of a hot war look like. The world’s most powerful nations, and those companies that have already attained sovereign-like status, are now in an existential competition to find the Holy Grail. 

China has naturally been denied access to NVIDIA’s technology. Having gutted their greatest tech entrepreneurs in a display of the kind of insecurity reserved for failing autocratic governments, Beijing is now racing to ban short selling of Chinese stocks, lest they continue their chronic decline. “We are worried that Chinese industrial support policies and macro policies that are more focused on supply rather than thinking about where the demand will come from are both careening towards a situation where overcapacity in China is going to wind up hitting world markets,” warned Jay Shambaugh, US under-secretary for international affairs. Treasury Secretary Yellen is also expected to raise Chinese overcapacity with her G20 counterparts when they meet in Sao Paulo later this month. As the vice tightens on China. And we are left to wonder what shape a panic in Beijing will take

A secret report from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been unearthed that shows a staggering half a million American children and young adults have been killed by Covid shots.

The CDC report has revealed that almost 500,000 Americans aged between 0 and 44 years old died from the dangerous side effects of the Covid mRNA injections between the start of the public rollout of the shots in early 2021 and October 9, 2022.

However, the shocking revelations from the report have been completely ignored by the corporate media – the same outlets that told the public the vaccines were “safe and effective.”

Compared to other countries, the U.S. Government has been slow to publish relevant and up-to-date data to allow the public to analyze the consequences of rolling out the Covid injections.

However, the data has finally been made public by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OEC).

Some voters in Washington state are unhappy and even angry that they have to mark their party affiliation on their mail-in ballots ahead of Republican and Democrat primaries.

This may have to do with a mistrust of how mail-in ballots are received and counted. Many people don’t trust our current election system, whether they’re on the Left or Right side of the political aisle.

But Washington state residents have been required to designate their party affiliation on mail-in ballots for primary elections since at least 2016.

Here’s where things don’t add up: Washington state law requires that voters make their party declaration known on the outside of mail-in ballots, even if they consider themselves an Independent. But they are not required to present voter ID for mail-in ballots for primary elections or Presidential elections.

Tyler Perry took one look at Sora and realized that everything was about to change in the world of Hollywood.

In case you missed it, Sora is a new AI video technology that looks really, really, really good.

And, like all of us, Madea creator and movie maker Tyler Perry realized that Sora's AI was legit.

And so he's paused his studio expansion in Atlanta, Georgia, because he understands that this AI is going to take over a lot of jobs.

Webmaster addition: I was working in Hollywood when the computer animation revolution hit. There was a lot of fear and hostility, sort of like when TV first appeared and film studios blacklisted anyone who dared work in the new medium. Or when silent films gave way to sound, or when black and white was supplanted by color. Hollywood has a long history of being resistant to change and no doubt the same thing will happen again. Meanwhile, I am having fun with the new toys!

The U.S. Naval Academy is providing a room on campus for midshipmen interested in The Satanic Temple to discuss the group.

Cmdr. Alana Garas, an academy spokeswoman, said Thursday the group has been provided a space to meet after a request was made by midshipmen.

An internal email was sent Oct. 8 to all midshipmen to announce the start of "satanic services."

However, Garas says the email was sent without approval of the Naval Academy’s Command Chaplain, as required.

On Sunday The New York Times published an explosive and very belated full admission that US intelligence has not only been instrumental in Ukraine wartime decision-making, but has established and financed high tech command-and-control spy centers, and was doing so long prior to the Feb. 24 Russian invasion of two years ago.

Among the biggest revelations is that the program was established a decade ago and spans three different American presidents. The Times says the CIA program to modernize Ukraine's intelligence services has "transformed" the former Soviet state and its capabilities into "Washington’s most important intelligence partners against the Kremlin today."

This has included the agency having secretly trained and equipped Ukrainian intelligence officers spanning back to just after the 2014 Maidan coup events, as well constructing a network of 12 secret bases along the Russian borderwork which began eight years ago. These intelligence bases, from which Russian commanders' communications can be swept up and Russian spy satellites monitored, are being used launch and track cross-border drone and missile attacks on Russian territory

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis' cell phone records obtained by Donald Trump's legal team reportedly "prove that she lied under oath" about when her affair with Nathan Wade began. 

From TechnoFog, "New Cell Phone Records Prove DA Willis Affair":
 

In a February 2, 2022 filing, DA Willis submitted Wade's affidavit to the Court which stated: "In 2022, District Attorney Willis and I developed a personal relationship." DA Willis and Wade both testified that the relationship started sometime in early 2022.

But Wade's cell phone records disprove their official story - and prove that Willis and Wade lied under oath before the Court. In a filing today from President Trump's attorneys, records indicate that the "relationship" between DA Willis and Wade was romantic well-before Wade's November 1, 2021 appointment by Willis as Special Prosecutor.

- Trump's attorneys were able to obtain, by subpoena to AT&T, Wade's cell phone records from 1/1/2021 through 11/30/2021. Wade's location data was analyzed by an investigator hired by the attorneys - an analytical tool which generated geolocation data that pinpointed Wade's presence at DA Willis's South Fulton Condo during that time period.

A man set himself on fire outside the Israeli embassy in Washington today. He said he did it in protest of the genocide in Gaza.

Independent journalist Talia Jane reports that she was able to obtain footage of the incident, which the unnamed man apparently recorded himself. Jane reports that the man said he is “an active duty member of the U.S. Air Force” and that he “will no longer be complicit in genocide.” After igniting he repeatedly yelled “Free Palestine.”

According to Jane, a police officer showed up pointing a gun at the man’s burning body; I guess that’s just what American cops do when they aren’t sure what to do. Someone who was actually trying to save the man reportedly yelled “I don’t need guns, I need fire extinguishers!”

In their analysis of Michael Hartnett's latest Flow show report entitled: Hartnett: How To Trade The Coming End Of US "Exceptionalism"   Zerohedge points out how to position for the coming cyclical stock rotation already starting

Summary:

Authored by GoldFix ZH Edit

In their analysis of Michael Hartnett's latest Flow show report entitled: Hartnett: How To Trade The Coming End Of US "Exceptionalism"   Zerohedge points out how to position for the coming cyclical stock rotation already starting

"This goes back to what Hartnett pointed out  all cyclical assets are now trading at the inflection point in ISM; based on historical relationship to ISM and current valuations. As such the best trades for “long producer, short consumer” in '24 are commodities, mercantilist stock indices & EM ex-China,..."

With their analysis in mind we try to similarly translate Hartnett's lingo for investors in 3 sections

1- From Consuming to Making: Hartnett lays out why the US has done so well (American Exceptionalism) relative to global peers and then describes how the economy will change in the coming months from being consumer driven to being Producer driven.

2- What to Buy: He then gives the trade recommendations to capitalize on such an economic hand-off using his ISM implied valuations and expectations. Those include Commodities, EM stocks, and Industrial Metals like Copper

3- Biden vs. Trump: Finally, he touches on very broadly what he expects the priorities of Biden and Trump should either of them win the election in November.

Here is that analysis excerpted for YouTube subscribers
