Sexbots, Robots, Neural Networks, Weird Oriental Games, and the Spores of Skynet
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

Today we will have Profound Thought. Actually it’s the only kind we ever have in this corner of the internet. Thunderous insight. Volcanic perceptiveness. That sort of thing. Anyway, some slightly addled questions about robots, and sexbots and their relations with people and how smart they are or aren’t. For example, can you love a robot? I mean with actual affection, such as one might have for a good dog? Or–larger question–how much emotional involvement is possible with machines, and how much is a good idea? Yeah, I know, this sounds silly. But we really are moving toward a world … Continue reading

‘Orders to Kill’ Martin Luther King: The Government that Honors MLK With a National Holiday Killed Him
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

MLK DAY 2020. In commemoration of Martin Luther King’s assassination, we bring to you this article by Edward Curtin first published on Global Research in January 2017. ** Very few Americans are aware of the truth behind the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Few books have been written about it, unlike other significant assassinations, especially JFK’s. For almost fifty years there has been a media blackout supported by government deception to hide the truth.  And few people, in a massive act of self-deception, have chosen to question the absurd official explanation, choosing, rather, to embrace a mythic fabrication intended … Continue reading

The Impeachment Charade and Monty Python
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

Most of us…at least most of us of a certain age…will remember Monty Python and their series of televised sketches and then films (e.g., Monty Python and the Holy Grail, 1975; Life of Brian, 1979; The Meaning of Life, 1983). I will admit that when they were in vogue their brand of surreal, over-the-top comedy, did not for the most part attract me. My preferences were for, say, a Peter Sellars/Inspector Clouseau movie, or, even better, some good ole’ bare-bones humor, the type you could find on that classic and long-running “country” television series, Hee Haw (e.g., Archie Campbell, Junior … Continue reading

The Windsors’ Unexpected Avenger Out in Burger-Land
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

If a novelist were to come up with the idea of a prince marrying a commoner of very common stock, and then the commoner taking the prince of some high-born house down some low road and away from all he knew, it wouldn’t be…utterly far-fetched. There is, after all, an old Irish folk ballad called “Raggle Taggle Gypsy” that I recall singing in elementary school, about some high-born lady being paid a visit by “the raggle taggle gypsy” (or gypsies), who, according to the lyrics, pulls off her silk-trimmed dress, puts on leather-o, and runs off with the gypsy for reasons unknown, as her heartbroken … Continue reading

Association of American Physicians & Surgeons Sues Rep. Adam Schiff For Censoring the Vaccine Debate
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

Vaccines are a hot topic right now, and vaccine hesitancy is growing and quickly gaining momentum. The reality of vaccine hesitancy is no longer a secret, as many studies on the matter have been published. And it is no longer simply among concerned parents. This study published in the journal EbioMedicine discusses how practitioners in France are becoming increasingly hesitant to prescribe some controversial vaccines to their patients. The World Health Organization believes vaccine hesitancy is one of the biggest threats to global health security. Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project, was one of many academics to speak at the World Health Organization’s … Continue reading

Warden Who Was in Charge When Jeffrey Epstein Died Behind Bars Is Quietly Given a Top Job At ‘Club Fed’ Prison
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

The warden in charge when Jeffrey Epstein died in his jail cell is getting a cushy new supervisor’s job at ‘Club Fed’ despite Attorney General Bill Barr’s demand that he be reassigned to a desk job. Lamine N’Diaye is being reassigned to a leadership role at FCI Fort Dix, a low-security prison in Burlington County, New Jersey, two people familiar with the matter said. The move comes months after Barr ordered N’Diaye be reassigned to a desk post at the Bureau of Prisons’ regional office in Pennsylvania after Epstein´s death as the FBI and the Justice Department´s inspector general investigated. … Continue reading

Poe of Virginia
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

The opinion has been often stated that Edgar Allan Poe was bizarre and amoral; that he was a lover of morbid beauty only; that he was unrelated to worldly circumstances-aloof from the affairs of the world; that his epitaph might well be: “Out of space-out of time.” But it is dangerous to attempt to separate any historical figure from his setting. No individual can ever be understood fully until the subtle influences of his formal education, his reading, his associates, and his time and country (with his heredity) are traced and synthesized. Too much has been said, perhaps, about Poe’s … Continue reading

The American Chaos Machine
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

In March 1906, on the heels of the U.S. Army’s massacre of some 1,000 men, women, and children in the crater of a volcano in the American-occupied Philippines, humorist Mark Twain took his criticism public. A long-time anti-imperialist, he flippantly suggested that Old Glory should be redesigned “with the white stripes painted black and the stars replaced by the skull and cross-bones.” I got to thinking about that recently, five years after I became an antiwar dissenter (while still a major in the U.S. Army), and in the wake of another near-war, this time with Iran. I was struck yet again by the way … Continue reading

US Officer Who Shot Down Iranian Plane Received a Medal, While the Man Guilty for Downing Ukraine’s Jet is IN JAIL – FM Zarif
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

Iran has imprisoned the army officer who fired a missile that killed 176 on board a Ukrainian jet, Mohammad Javad Zarif has said, comparing Tehran’s actions to that of the US when it downed an Iranian airliner 32 years ago. The downing of a Ukraine International Airlines’ Boeing 737 in early January was “a complicated situation in a complicated time,” Zarif revealed in an interview with Germany’s Spiegel magazine, when pressed into explaining why it took three days for Tehran to admit their guilt. “Others needed much more time. Almost 32 years ago, the US shot down an Iranian passenger plane. As of … Continue reading

A Desperate Search for Uniqueness
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

O Hamlet, what a falling off was there! The contrast between Prince Harry and his grandmother is not only that between one generation and another, but between one conception of life, one culture, and another. I know which I prefer, but others may think, indeed do think, different. On the one side is an iron sense of duty at whatever personal cost, self-restraint, and a kind of existential modesty despite exalted position, and on the other is personal whim, self-expression as an imperative, and ego as the object of almost religious devotion. There isn’t much doubt as to which of these attitudes … Continue reading

Google — A Dictator Unlike Anything the World Has Ever Known
Mon, 27 Jan 2020 04:01:00 +0000

Robert Epstein, who received his Ph.D. in psychology from Harvard in 1981 and served as the former editor in chief at Psychology Today, is now a senior research psychologist for the American Institute of Behavioral Research and Technology, where for the last decade he has helped expose Google’s manipulative and deceptive practices. He explains what got him interested in investigating the internet search monopoly in the first place: “In 2012, January 1st, I received some emails from Google saying my website contained malware and that they were somehow blocking access. This means I had gotten onto one of Google’s blacklists. My website did … Continue reading
