Thought for the day

"Those who recognize the stupidity and fickleness of the masses will not be remotely surprised by anything they do." -- Nicolas Poussin
"The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority." -- Martin Luther King Jr. (A Knock at Midnight, June 11, 1967)

San Francisco supervisors voted Tuesday to put the brakes on a controversial policy that would have let police use robots for deadly force.

It's a stunning U-Turn just days after their approval of the plan generated fierce pushback and warnings about the militarization and automation of policing.

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to explicitly ban the use of robots in such a fashion for now. But they sent the issue back to a committee for further discussion and could vote in the future to let police use robots in a lethal manner in limited cases.

Winston Churchill famously reassured the U.S. that its long northern border was 'guarded only by neighbourly respect and honourable obligations'.

And generations of US leaders have tended to agree – there's nothing to worry about from solid and reliably uncontroversial Canada.

Until now, that is.

Anyone who ever thought that the compassionate response to extreme human suffering is a society that helps people find permanent release from their pain may want to look at some of the horror stories coming out of Canada recently.

To be clear, euthanasia laws in the US are nothing like those of its neighbor to the north. But American acceptance of the practice has been growing for decades despite warnings that legalized suicide is a slippery slope toward a calamitous debasement of human life.

Canada, a country that prides itself on its open-mindedness and tolerance, has the most permissive rules on euthanasia in the world – and the results have been frankly terrifying.

It has been 50 years since man last set foot on the moon and to mark the occasion a series of newly-remastered images have been released.

They capture in amazing detail what Apollo 17 astronauts Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt saw during their mission on December 7, 1972.

It coincides with a new era in space exploration that has seen NASA blast its Artemis I mission around the moon and back again, with the Orion spacecraft currently returning to Earth following a so far successful journey.

Amid a last-ditch effort by media lobbyists to insert the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA), a bailout for the mainstream media derided across the partisan spectrum, into the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), ten Republican senators are heroically stalling the push.

GOP senate leader Mitch McConnell is the primary antagonist, using two routes to help the Democrats ram through the bailout for their cronies in the media, something even their own supporters on the left oppose.

One route is to attach the bill to the NDAA, a vital defense spending bill seen as a “must-pass,” which is rapidly evolving into a Christmas tree with all sorts of Democrat hobby horses, wholly unrelated to defense, attached to it.

McConnell and the Democrats are also attempting a process known as a “hotwire,” which would pass the JCPA without any debate if no Senator objects to it.

But they have a problem — the number of Senators opposing it has only grown since the push began, with sources on the hill telling Breitbart News that the number of opposing Senators is now up to ten.

Twitter CEO Elon Musk made headlines recently when he revealed that he won’t “ever again” sign autographs in public because of threats to his life. During a live session on the social media website, Musk was discussing the “Twitter Files” and made a concerning admission that he was concerned about his safety.

“Frankly the risk of something bad happening or literally even being shot is quite significant. I’m definitely not going to be doing any open-air car parades, let me put it that way,” Musk said. “It’s not that hard to kill me if somebody wanted to, so hopefully they don’t.”

Over the weekend, Musk told reporters outside Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., that he also would never sign autographs again as a way to protect himself from any potential threats.

“I’ve made it clear,” Musk told the group. “I’m not doing any more — any more signings, ever again.”

On Tuesday, Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced that attorney Jim Baker had been "exited" from the company following recent revelations that he may have played a role in facilitating censorship on the platform.

Baker had been hired by Twitter as deputy general counsel following a stint at the FBI that ended with him essentially being forced out of the job.

"In light of concerns about Baker's possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today," Musk wrote on Twitter.

Musk said that Baker's explanation was "unconvincing" once he was confronted.

The Twitter files included revelations that "Twitter took extraordinary steps to suppress the [Hunter Biden laptop] story, removing links and posting warnings that it may be 'unsafe.' They even blocked its transmission via direct message, a tool hitherto reserved for extreme cases, e.g. child pornography.

The Biden administration has reportedly launched a federal investigation into one of Elon Musk’s companies over allegations that the company may have violated animal-welfare laws.

The investigation into Neuralink, where Musk serves as CEO, was launched by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Inspector General at the request of a federal prosecutor, Reuters reported.

The neurotechnology company is developing “ultra high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers,” according to its website.

The report said that the investigation centers around potential violations of the Animal Welfare Act, which “regulates the treatment of animals in research, teaching, testing, exhibition, transport, and by dealers,” according to the agency.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said President Joe Biden will likely announce his decision on re-election after the holidays. Klain made the comment on Monday during an interview at the Wall Street Journal’s’ CEO Council Summit. 

He reiterated Biden’s past comments in which the president said he will make a formal decision early next year. Biden reportedly discussed a possible 2024 run with his family over Thanksgiving. He will continue the talks during Christmas and New Year’s.

“I hear from a lot of Democrats across the country that they want him to run. But the president will make that decision,” Mr. Klain said. “I expect it shortly after the holidays, but I expect the decision will be to do it.”
