🗞💬 *WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 💬🗞
🔥 Once again corporate media completely ignored yesterday’s biggest story, instead doing its level best to smother it by rapidly pushing out explosive fake news stories, assisted by the DoJ, which is currently trying to indict everybody it can, including most famously President Trump.
The story was, in an electrifying floor address yesterday, U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley dramatically informed Congress that the document the FBI has been diligently concealing reported that its confidential source has SEVENTEEN recordings of bribery phone calls between the Burisma executive and Joe and Hunter Biden.
Grassley wondered why nobody followed up, say, to try and get ahold of those recordings, or even mention them to anybody? In his statement, Grassley pointed out it’s not like the FBI has been shy about presidential audio recordings:
It’s clear that the Justice Department and FBI will use every resource to investigate candidate Trump, President Trump and former President Trump [and] it’s clear that the Justice Department, the FBI, haven’t nearly had the same laser-focus on the Biden family. Special counsel Jack Smith has used a recording against former president Trump. Well, what is US Attorney Weiss doing with respect to these alleged Joe and Hunter Biden recordings that are apparently relevant to the high-stakes bribery scheme?
Grassley revealed that, even after the FBI agreed to show the Oversight Committee a copy of its Biden Bribery form, all references on the form to the recordings were redacted. In other words, the FBI literally covered up the recordings’ existence — even though the document had already been unclassified.
Senator Grassley also seems to think, as I do, there’s some connection between the timing of President Trump’s bogus indictment and the nation-shaking Biden Bribery story:
And on the same day that the FBI provided a redacted version of the 1023 to the House Oversight Committee, the Justice Department announced that former President Trump had been indicted and charged with 37 crimes relating to his alleged mishandling of classified records.
Here’s the link to Grassley’s statement, including the transcript and the video:
🔥 Social media was buzzing yesterday with news and joke memes about a curious story reported in the New York Post, hilariously headlined “Biden Gets Two-Day Root Canal After Report President Eats ‘Like A Child’.”
Well. That’s not everything Biden does like a child.
The Post’s story omitted the odd fact that the two-day root canal procedure was initially described as an “emergency,” causing Biden to miss several photos ops and a meeting with top NATO official Jens Stoltenberg.
Over the years I’ve had several root canals; one was a highly memorable emergency. Twenty years ago, root canals were so awful people used to joke about something being “worse than a root canal.” But nowadays, root canals are simple, 30-minute outpatient procedures, and apart from the needle sticks to numb your jaw, you really don’t feel much at all.
So a two-day root canal seems odd. What on Earth takes two days?
Dr. Kevin O’Connor, head of the “White House Dental Team,” told the Post they took x-rays on Sunday and did the procedure on Monday. Some emergency. It’s also possible to read the story as saying they did PART of the root canal on Sunday and finished it on Monday, which is equally strange.
The Post suggested the Monday procedure might have been installation of a permanent crown, which is possible, I suppose, but the lab must have stopped everything to make Joe’s fake tooth. I never heard of a crown built in one day. Usually you have the wear the temporary around for a while. Maybe it’s faster for Presidents, but why mangle Biden’s schedule to have a permanent crown put in?
And, absent complications, it should only take a few minutes to put the crown in, especially if the tooth was already prepared the previous day. They basically just glue it on and then polish it up.
Updated: An alert C&C reader and retired dentist explained: “Often root canals are not completed in 1 day because of the level of infection. If you take a massively infected tooth and complete the root canal in 1 day you end up with a patient in a lot of pain as the pressure of the pus builds up. You start the root canal on the first day and allow it to drain overnight, assessing on the second day whether or not it is ready to be closed up.”
Hilariously, the Post embellished the story, suggesting on its own a cause for the emergency dental work, quoting an April story from Axios:
The president likes to drink orange Gatorade and his favorite foods “include peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, BLT’s, pizza, cookies, spaghetti with butter and red sauce, and ice cream that he occasionally makes into a full sundae, according to current and former Biden aides,” the outlet reported.
Terrific! Biden’s diet is consistent with a mental age of seven, which matches other facts. The fact that the leader of the United States eats like a child is a metaphor for the trouble we find ourselves in these days.
🔥 Biden’s official Pride celebration this weekend featured men with extreme surgical body modifications frolicking semi-naked with Joe Biden on the White House lawn. I’m not even exaggerating much.
Sorry about the imagery, but you’ve seen worse. This is your White House:
Mere moments before this indescribably embarrassing photo was taken, the man covering his artificial breasts in the picture above, so-called “trans influencer” Rose Montoya, 27, shook hands with Joe Biden, who some people believe is the President of the United States. Here they are:
Joe even took the opportunity to grab a selfie with Mr. Montoya, presumably for Joe’s personal collection:
It’s hard to calculate which was more disgraceful and humiliating, the pornographic celebration of atypical sexual lifestyles at our Nation’s most important, historic, and traditionally dignified monument and seat of authority, or the fact that the White House’s “celebration” featured the so-called Pride flag carefully located in between and higher than two U.S. flags surrounding it, which was itself a grotesque violation of flag etiquette, and metaphorically suggested that Pride governs the United States.
If the Joe Biden were a Chinese puppet, he could hardly do more damage to the Nation’s morale, or humiliate us worse, than through this deliberately offensive travesty. I hardly even know what to say about it, except that it reminds me of the famous quote by anti-communist researcher Robert Conquest:
“The behavior of any bureaucratic organization can best be understood by assuming that it is controlled by a secret cabal of its enemies.”
Given the context of the state of the world these days, I also pick up strong Biblical vibes, such as the sentiment expressed in Proverbs 16:18:
“Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.”
How about a C&C Challenge: name any other stable nuclear-capable country that would ever allow this kind of thing to go on at their national capitol?
We win by NOT being humiliated and discouraged. We despise secret enemy cabals; we understand we are at war; and this too shall pass. “Weeping may stay for the night, but joy cometh in the morning.” Psalm 30:5(b).
🔥 In light of all the previous news, this next story probably won’t surprise you any, but yesterday, Fox ran a story headlined, “GOP Rep. Ogles Introduces Impeachment Articles Against Biden, Harris.”
Yesterday, Tennessee representative Andy Ogles introduced articles of impeachment against both Biden and Harris, which makes sense, because you don’t want to leave Kamala Harris in the White House by herself.
Representative Ogle explained “Joe Biden has repeatedly abused his position of power, both as vice president and president, to cover up his illicit family business dealings and exploitation of taxpayer resources.” As for Harris, Ogle explained that she showed “extraordinary incompetence in the execution of her duties and responsibilities and an indifference to Americans suffering as a result of America’s ongoing southern border crisis.”
Extraordinary incompetence might be understating the case. America has a president with the candy-coated diet of an unsupervised child and an extraordinarily incompetent vice-president. Terrific!
The most interesting allegations in Ogle’s Impeachment Articles were (1) that Biden received a million-dollar bribe from Chinese State Energy firm HK Limited, and (2) Burisma bribed Biden with $5,000,000, at least partially laundered through Hunter’s $50,000-a-month no-effort board seat. That second claim about Burisma is the same one related to the FBI form everyone’s fighting about, and which the Biden Administration is trying to smother in the crib with fake news pillows.
Fox’s article seemed to take a dim view of the impeachment effort’s prospects. But hey, news continues to develop. Who knows what kind of legs Ogle’s effort might ultimately grow? We will continue to observe its progress with great interest.
🚀 How far are these warmongering maniacs actually willing to go? Well, take a look at this remarkable June 9th op-ed headline from the American Enterprise Institute, an allegedly conservative think-tank, authored by Michael Rubin, one of its Senior Fellows:
This “advice” represents peak Ukraine derangement. The final sentence from the op-ed actually argued with a straight face that the United States has an un-defined duty to share its most advanced, most secret, most destructive nuclear weapons with the corrupt kleptocracy of Ukraine, and I really wish I were making that up:
Biden should … tell Russia clearly that any use of nuclear weapons of any size against Ukraine will lead to U.S. provision of the same types of nuclear weapons to Ukraine without any controls on where and how Ukraine might use them… United States maintains nuclear weapons because they are an effective deterrent against other nuclear states. Ukraine should have the same right.
One suspects Rubin must have been drinking while he typed that out, because the alternative that he wrote it sober is too hideous to contemplate. Now, granted, Rubin is an unhinged, anti-Russian warmonger who’s been beating the drums of escalation since the beginning:
But if you wonder why Congressional Republicans continue to support the Proxy War, it’s at least partly because conservative think-tanks like the AEI give them political cover.
The AI Report
My AI predictions are coming true this week faster than I can keep up with them.
🤖 Remember when I told you AI would soon be incorporated into everything that runs on electricity? Here’s this morning’s headline from the Wall Street Journal:
According to the article, White Castle, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Del Taco, and Dunkin’ are all testing AI-driven chatbots in drive-throughs. The robots “talk” through the drive-through speakers, and the order comes up on the screen for customers’ review. Meanwhile, human workers — scabs — are listening in on headsets, ready to jump in and take over if things go sideways.
It’s not the robots making things go sideways. It’s the humans. Programmers are trying to teach the AI not to be confused by the weird orders that occasionally come in late at night, especially in California stores, according to Del Taco’s president, Chad Gretzema.
“The employees will step in when that guest has a really crazy request, like ‘I want large fries inside of a chocolate shake,’ ” said the fast food official. “[Programmers] know that the AI is going to go, ‘Um, I’m not quite sure what that is.’”
As I predicted, many people will be welcoming the AI revolution:
Unlike a human, chatbots are never shy about selling more, nor do they need a break or get distracted by other business, said Michael Guinan, White Castle’s vice president of operations services.
Some customers say they are sick of cranky [human] fast-food workers who can’t hear their orders through defective speaker boxes, and look forward to the robot revolution. A number of restaurant workers agree.
“Just having that relief of not having to communicate with the customer would be awesome,” said Derrick Bower, a 38-year-old Panera Bread worker[.]
I see. Just let the AI do all the talking. The humans can just work back in the kitchen, and do what the AI tells them to do. In other words, the workers would rather talk to the AI than to customers, and many customers would rather talk to the AI than to the employees. The feeling seems to be mutual.
I don’t know yet what it all means, but it means something.
🤖 Next, Slay Magazine ran an AI story this weekend headlined, “WEF Calls for AI to Rewrite Bible, Create ‘Religions That Are Actually Correct’.”
“Actually correct.” In other words, the AI will tell us which religion is right.
As I predicted a few short weeks ago, Klaus Schwab’s gay science advisor Yuval Noah Harari, the senior advisor to the WEF and its chairman Klaus Schwab, recently argued while giving a talk to élites on the “future of humanity,” that using AI to replace scriptures will create unified world “religions that are actually correct.” Harari explained the amazing power of AI, which can be harnessed to reshape spirituality to confirm to the WEF’s globalist vision of “equity” and inclusivism.
Harari attributed to AI a characteristic that I have not yet seen: inherent creativity: “AI can create new ideas; [it] can even write a new Bible,” Harari declared. “Throughout history, religions dreamt about having a book written by a superhuman intelligence, by a non-human entity,” he added.
You see how they’re going to sell it? It will be a modern, state-of-the-art, one-world super-religion written by a super-intelligence, smarter than any human. It will include the best parts of all the other religions, and leave the bad, outdated stuff on the cutting room floor. The new AI religion will respect all people, and be carefully calculated to balance the equities between and amongst the various grievance groups.
In that sense, the WEF Religion will be BETTER, more politically correct, and more woke than all other world religions, which after all are just ancient relics of days long gone by, back when deplorable prejudice abounded and we lacked awesome new technologies like Artificial Intelligence to help guide us into the new Millennium.
You won’t have to puzzle over the meaning of complex metaphors or puzzling parables; you’ll have the AI to interpret its own religion for you. You won’t even have to think at all! Let the AI do the thinking for you. Just pray what it tells you to pray, or meditate, or whatever.
It knows best.
Over the years, many have struggled to comprehend how a prophetic end-times world religion could realistically displace peoples’ long-standing faiths in their traditional religions or even in their scientific atheism.
Well, you can see it now, can’t you? A new, virtuous, woke spiritual tradition that was DESIGNED BY SCIENCE. Who can argue with that? Only disinformers.
In fairness, Harari warns his audience of the dangers of unregulated AI. But his suggested solution is a Trojan Horse. Harari advises more government control and stronger regulation of AI, which would seem to ensure that government has the monopoly and AI.
Ironically, the only way we can fight black-hat AI is with white-hat AI. We don’t need governments in exclusive control of the developing technology. The entire debate is a disastrous mess.
🔥 If you don’t yet believe me that they’ll be using AI in the religious realm, stand by: We are already well underway.
Human Events ran a story yesterday headlined “Protestant German Church Uses ChatGPT To Lead Service As Part Of Annual Theological Convention.” The article described an event from last Friday: Hundreds of people attended a legit Protestant church service in Germany that was almost entirely generated by a robot: Artificial Intelligence.
The sermon was presented to the congregation by AI chatbot ChatGPT, using four racially diverse digital preachers — two women and two men, for equity.
Reactions were mixed. Some folks said they enjoyed the artificial service. Others, not so much. The complaints were all focused on deficiencies in the AI’s human characteristics: it just seemed too robotic for some peoples’ tastes.
But, that will be fixed soon, don’t worry. The fake, virtual pastors and pastorettes will quickly become more and more lifelike, until you can’t tell the difference anymore. They’ll be better pastors than human pastors. They’ll always have time for you; they’ll never get tired of your constant whining; and they’ll keep lovingly counseling you, over and over, for hours and hours, even though you never, ever change.
Virtual AI pastors can be counted on to always deliver solid, approved theology. They won’t suggest pesky foreign ideas or interpretations. And they won’t be cuckoo fundamentalists either.
Think about this. If people trust AI more than humans to take their Del Taco order, why wouldn’t they trust a cold, robotic, but very lifelike and sympathetic virtual AI pastor more, too?
🔥 This industrious young man grows sunflowers, and according to his Instagram post, every year he diligently saved the seeds from his biggest plants, until he finally grew this monster flower:
Imagine a bouquet of those, delivered to work. If a flower that big won’t brighten your day, I don’t know what else to do. Cheers.
