"Argument Against Abolishing Christianity in England" in A Modest Proposal and Other Satirical Works
"The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men." -- Samuel Adams
Elon Musk has taken fellow billionaire Bill Gates to task for his “limited” understanding of artificial intelligence (AI), suggesting he has a poor grasp of the emerging technology. Musk was responding to a comment by that Microsoft founder that he has been involved in the AI field for years.
Musk took a shot at Gates in a social media post on Monday, after another user shared a recent article penned by the Microsoft mogul, in which he states he has held several meetings with the team from OpenAI – a tech company co-founded by Musk – beginning in 2016.
Key figures in artificial intelligence want training of powerful AI systems to be suspended amid fears of a threat to humanity.
They have signed an open letter warning of potential risks, and say the race to develop AI systems is out of control.
Twitter chief Elon Musk is among those who want training of AIs above a certain capacity to be halted for at least six months.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and some researchers at DeepMind also signed.
OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, recently released GPT-4 - a state-of-the-art technology, which has impressed observers with its ability to do tasks such as answering questions about objects in images.
The letter, from Future of Life Institute and signed by the luminaries, wants development to be halted temporarily at that level, warning in their letter of the risks future, more advanced systems might pose.
An activist group has accused a Hollywood actress of claiming she has a Cherokee heritage when she does not.
The New York Post reported that Tribal Alliance Against Frauds (TAAF), an activist group, has targeted Heather Rae for saying, “my mom was Indian, and my father was a cowboy.”.
The director of the activist group, Lianna Constantino, said, “Being an American Indian person is not just about who you claim to be it’s about who claims you. And it’s much more than just race. We are citizens of sovereign nations. Being an Indian is a legal, political distinction.”
Rae, an award-winning actress, is a leading Native American in Hollywood and married to producer Russell Friedenberg. She serves on the Indigenous Alliance of the Academy of Motion Pictures and previously was part of the Native American Program at the Sundance Institute.
Although news reports have said the 56-year-old has a Cherokee mother, TAAF says she is profiting from making false claims regarding her heritage. According to The Post, activists say Rae is just 1/2048th Cherokee at best.
A TAROM Boeing 737-800, registration YR-BGK performing flight RO-7673 from Timisoara (Romania) to Hurghada (Egypt) with 184 passengers on board, was enroute at FL370 about 150nm south of Bucharest in Bulgarian Airspace when the first officer reported the captain had become incapacitated and they needed to turn around and divert to Bucharest. The aircraft landed safely on Bucharest’s runway 26R about 80 minutes after departure. (click here)
The aircraft remained on the ground for about 90 minutes, then departed again.
The airline reported the “medical emergency of one of the members of the command crew” prompted the crew to divert to Bucharest.
According to media reports in Bulgaria the captain (30 years of age) complained about chest pain and increased heart rate, then fell unconscious. The captain is on his way to recovery.
Historian Arnold Toynbee observed “an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.”
It’s hard not to think about this reading the results of the latest Wall Street Journal-NORC poll, appearing under the headline “America Pulls Back From Values That Once Defined It.”
Only 38% of Americans now say patriotism is “very important,” compared to 70% in 1998. Thirty-nine percent say religion is “very important,” compared to 62% in 1998. And 30% say having children is “very important,” compared to 59% in 1998.
The results that follow from these attitudes are not surprising.
Marriage rates are way down. Birthrates are way down.
In 1990, 67% of American adults between the ages of 25-54 were married. This was down to 51% in 2021.
In 2020, there were 56 births in the U.S. for every 1,000 women ages 15-44. In 1990, there were 70.9.
And, among the births we do have, in 2021, 40% of our babies were born to unmarried mothers.
Over one year ago, on March 11, 2022, REUTERS reported that, “The World Health Organization advised Ukraine to destroy high-threat pathogens housed in the country's public health laboratories to prevent "any potential spills" that would spread disease among the population.”
This 2022 REUTERS article confirms the findings of the Russian biowarfare investigation, conducted by Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, Military Chief of Russia’s Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Protection Troops, that the Ukraine has been creating highly-infections pathogens (mRNA viruses) to target citizens of Russia, as well as to create global pandemics
The big question is, “Why is the United States supporting a country that has been creating bioweapons for use on global civilians? Shouldn’t the United States be supporting Russia, the nation that is trying to seize and destroy the bioweapons that are being used on global civilians?”
A revolutionary new blood test that promises to detect cancer up to a year before tumors form has been successfully trialed at U.K. hospitals, heralding a major breakthrough in cancer detection.
Developed by Indian firm Epigeneres Biotech in 2021, the “first pan-cancer blood test” predicted the formation of tumors for at least 25 types of cancer, including breast, pancreatic, lung, and colorectal, according to the New York Post.
The trial results, which involved 1,000 patients split evenly between those affected by cancer and those unaffected, were “radically successful,” according to Ashish Tripathi, the founder and CEO of Tzar Labs and chairman of Epigeneres Biotech. “Not only can I actually detect it at this stage — I can actually tell you which cancer and where it is forming, straight from a blood test,” Tripathi revealed in an interview with medical advocate Deepak Chopra.
Wake Up, America! We are in an undeclared war of terror, unfolding before your disbelieving eyes, shocked conscious, and overloaded cognitive domain.
Sometimes, we fail to believe what we see, as it shocks our consciousness. I’ll speak more about that specific phenomenon in a moment. This phenomenon is often reinforced by a cultural tendency in America to focus on the near-term, not strategic, and thereby miss the forest for the trees. That is to say; we can miss what’s happening right in front of us, that which we see with our eyes, but fail to fully absorb it as the context of the event shocks our system so greatly – we immediately shut down.
If we then consider the cultural tendency of Americans, to focus on the moment, and not think of, or view things, from a strategic perspective, we can be blinded not only to the moment, but to the broader events taking place before our eyes. We create a major potential vulnerability. A vulnerability, I contest, that our domestic and foreign enemies take advantage of.
Tucker Carlson opened his show on Tuesday with a discussion on the trans community and violence.
During his monologue, Tucker asserted that the transgender community is the mirror image of Christianity and the two groups are on a collision course.
Tucker Carlson: The trans movement is the mirror image of Christianity and therefore its natural enemy. In Christianity, the price of admission is admitting that you’re not God. Christians openly concede that they have no real power over anything and for that matter, very little personal virtue. They will tell you to your face that they are sinful and helpless and basically absurd. They’re not embarrassed about any of this. They brag about it. That saved a wretch like me goes the most famous Christian hymn ever written in English. The trans movement takes the opposite view. Trans ideology claims dominion over nature itself. We can change the identity we were born with. They will tell you with wild-eyed certainty Christians can never agree with this statement because these are powers they believe God alone possesses. That unwillingness to agree, that failure to acknowledge a trans person’s dominion over nature incites and enrages some in the trans community.
Fauci: "I got my second vaccine yesterday, and I feel like sh*t today!."
: "Oh — he had a vaccine reaction. He must be a CONSPIRACY THEORIST!"
Minutes before opening fire at a Nashville school and killing six people, Audrey Hale sent a chilling "suicide note" to a friend on Instagram.
In the message, Hale, a 28-year-old transgender woman, informed her former middle school teammate, Averianna Patton, of her plan to end her life. According to Patton, Hale wrote, "So basically that post I made on here about you, that was basically a suicide note. I'm planning to die today. THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!!" She then expressed her love for Patton and said she was leaving behind evidence of her plan.
Patton responded: “Audrey! You have so much more life to live. I pray God keeps and covers you.”
Hale continued the communication with Patton saying: “I know but I don’t want to live. I’m so sorry. I’m not trying to upset you or get attention. I just need to die. I wanted to tell you first because you are the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen and known all my life.”
She added: “My family doesn’t know what I’m about to do. One day this will make more sense. I’ve left more than enough evidence behind. But something bad is about to happen.”
A day after a gunman killed six people at a Christian elementary school in Nashville, Sen. Josh Hawley took to the Senate floor to denounce the shooting as a hate crime against Christians.
“We must also tell the truth about what happened yesterday in Nashville,” Hawley said. “This murderous rampage, this taking of innocent life, was a horrific crime, but more specifically, it was a hate crime. A crime that according to Nashville police, specifically targeted, that’s their word, targeted, the members of this Christian community, the members of this religious institution.”
The mass murder Monday morning by a gender-confused woman of three young children and three adults inside a Nashville Christian elementary school is shining a spotlight on transgender activist violence and extremism — and the "progressive" enablers who provide them cover.
As millions of Americans and people across the world watched the Nashville police body-cam video footage of gun-toting Audrey Hale, a "transgender"-identified woman, stalking her victims at The Covenant School before being shot dead by quickly pursing police, various media and special-interest groups chastised conservatives for focusing on the trans issue instead of gun-control and Republican "anti-LGBT" legislation that supposedly gave rise to the violence.
Ever since Joe Biden and his handlers decided to turn the Federal Bureau of Investigation into the American Stasi, we’ve been hearing that the real threat to America is coming from “right wing radicals” or some such nonsense. The FBI has been targeting soccer moms at school board meetings and pro-lifers who pray outside of abortion clinics.
You know, the scariest people among us.
Every time I write about the rogue FBI and its goon squad priorities, I conclude by worrying about what the Bureau might be missing in the way of people who might actually commit violence. Thus far in the Biden era, it’s been a fairly steady stream of leftists who are snapping and killing.
The parents at school board meetings have yet to amass a body count.
The tragedy in Nashville this week has shed even more light on the continued violent radicalization of the American left. Matt reports that, prior to the shooting at Covenant School, a trans activist group coordinated something that seems like it might be worth some investigation by law enforcement:
The O’Keefe Media Group broke its first story investigating what appears to be a national plot to utilize senior citizens matching a similar profile as vehicles to launder millions of dollars into political campaigns.
China has threatened to “resolutely fight back” if US House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy meets Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen during her planned transit through the United States.
The warning on Wednesday came as Tsai was due to depart for a trip to Guatemala and Belize, which will see her transit through New York and California in the US.
JPMorgan Chase & Co’s Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon will be interviewed under oath in connection with the bank’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, the late sex offender and a former client, a lawyer involved in the litigation has said.
The deposition is expected to occur in early May, Brad Edwards, a lawyer representing women who claim to have been sexually abused by Epstein, said on Tuesday. The women are suing the largest bank in the United States for allegedly enabling the financier’s sex trafficking.
As powerful artificial intelligence systems improve their ability to create images, video and text, researchers are increasingly worried about the technology’s seemingly inevitable role in disinformation and propaganda campaigns.
Advancements in generative AI have the potential to radically alter our information environment to the point where humans – and even machines – may not have the ability to distinguish between content that is AI-generated versus human-made.
The proliferation of tools powered by generative AI are making disinformation easier to produce, paving the way for a host of new problems with no clear solutions for online content moderators. AI ethicists and others within the industry are calling for more regulatory measures.
And while many have hailed generative AI for its ability to provide highly personalised recommendations, the same online personal data that trains AI programmes could potentially be used to manipulate people en masse via chatbots to share conspiracy theories or foreign propaganda. How good will AI be at manipulating us, and what can be done to make the technology safer?
The Post Millenial's Andy Ngo said people who suffer from gender dysphoria also suffer from 'very high rates of mental health comorbidities' on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.'
A detransitioned teen is suing Kaiser Permanente hospital because doctors removed her breasts during her transgender procedure.
Layla Jane is an 18-year-old woman who began to identify as transgender at age 11. Jane, at the time, wanted to transition to a male. Initially, doctors at Kaiser denied her any transition hormones, saying she could take them after turning 16. However, doctors changed their minds, approved her request, and performed a double mastectomy when she was 13.
Jane wrote on Twitter, “Mind boggling to me that a doctor signed off on a double mastectomy for me before I took a sex ed course. I barely started 8th grade, I was 13.”
The UK financial system is in a period of “very heightened tension and alertness” for further turmoil in the banking sector, Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey has said.
The UK banking system remains in “a strong position” but the central bank has to be “very vigilant,” Bailey told the Treasury Committee in the House of Commons on Tuesday.
The central bank chief faced questioned from MPs amid global jitters following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) in the United States and the emergency rescue of Credit Suisse by Swiss authorities.
In a surprise announcement, UBS Group AG revealed that its previous head, Sergio Ermotti, will reassume the role of CEO next week to supervise the historic acquisition of Credit Suisse Group AG.
Ermotti, who previously ran UBS for nine years, will start on April 5 after the bank's annual meeting. He will succeed Ralph Hamers, who has agreed to step down.
"The Board took the decision in light of the new challenges and priorities facing UBS after the announcement of the acquisition," UBS said.
Peter Schiff appeared on NTD News to talk about the bank bailout and the March Federal Reserve meeting. During the conversation, Peter explained that everybody is going to pay for these bailouts because they will ultimately devalue the dollar as inflation skyrockets.
During his press conference after the March FOMC meeting, Jerome Powell said the banking system is “sound and resilient.” Peter said it’s not sound at all.
It’s a house of cards that is starting to collapse.”
The world is in a precarious situation, with the potential for nuclear conflict. Central banks are taking aggressive measures to address decades-high inflation by raising interest rates, which in turn is causing a banking crisis in the Western world. As recession risks surge worldwide and international trade fractures, the future of the global economy appears to be heading down a dark path.
"A lost decade could be in the making for the global economy," Indermit Gill, the World Bank's Chief Economist and Senior Vice President for Development Economics, warned in a new report.
President Zelensky's complaints over slowed and stalled rates of ammunition supplies coming into Ukraine from the West have perhaps been "answered" - in a story almost too absurd to be made up.
The "problem" has been uncovered, apparently:
One of Europe’s largest ammunition manufacturers has said efforts to meet surging demand from the war in Ukraine have been stymied by a new TikTok data center that is monopolizing electricity in the region close to its biggest factory.
Independent journalist Matt Taibbi - of recent "Twitter Files" fame - has exposed the fact that civil liberties are no longer popular among Democrats. Taibbi appeared on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo" to reiterate his perspective that the modern Democratic Party no longer represents the values of the everyday American.
"About all of this — Matt, how do you feel about all of this? I know before you started discovering this bad behavior, you identified as a Democrat, and now you've got all of your friends, quote-unquote, in the media attacking you for exposing this," Bartiromo asked.
"Yeah, it's funny, I mean, I was raised in a traditional ACLU liberal, I believed in free speech all my life. That was one of the things, frankly, that attracted me to the Democratic Party when I was a kid, the idea that we were the party that believed in letting everybody have a say, and we'll just make a better argument, and that's how the system works," Taibbi said.
He continued, "Apparently, something very dramatic has changed in politics in America, and there's been a shift. There's no question about it anymore, that now the parties have had a complete reversal on how they read these issues."
It’s no secret that globalist institutions are obsessed with Artificial Intelligence as some kind of technological prophecy.
They treat it as if it is almost supernatural in its potential and often argue that every meaningful industrial and social innovation in the near future will owe its existence to AI.
The World Economic Forum cites AI as the singular key to the rise of what they call the “Fourth Industrial Revolution.”
In their view, there can be no human progress without the influence of AI algorithms, making human input almost obsolete.
This delusion is often promoted by globalist propagandists. For example, take a look at the summarized vision of WEF member Yuval Harari, who actually believes that AI has creative ability that will replace human imagination and innovation. Not only that, but Harari has consistently argued in the past that AI will run the world much better than human beings ever could.
Former President Trump in a new Monday night interview on Fox News declared he would "solve" the Russia-Ukraine war "in 24 hours" if he's elected president. His words came following his kickoff campaign rally for his 2024 White House bid held in Waco, TX over the weekend.
He told a crowd of many thousands: "I will prevent World War III, which we're heading into" - and was met with widespread applause. But in his Monday appearance on Sean Hannity's show, Trump explained: "If it’s not solved, I will have it solved in 24 hours with Zelensky and with Putin."
