          I am impressed with Colonel Douglas Macgregor.  He makes good sense, and he’s informed, articulate, realistic, and honest.  I suspect you’ll like him too. :yes:

              AI Develops Cancer Drug in 30 Days, Predicts Life Expectancy with 80% Accuracy:

              AI technologies invented by scientists at the University of British Columbia and B.C. Cancer has succeeded in discovering a previously-unknown treatment pathway for an aggressive form of liver cancer, designing a new drug to treat it in the process.

              The team also deployed AI to determine a patient’s life expectancy, by having it analyze doctors’ notes. The AI reportedly has an 80 percent accuracy rate in its predictions.

              The feat was accomplished in just 30 days from target selection and after only synthesizing seven compounds.

              The system used to predict life expectancy used natural language processing (NLP)—a branch of AI that understands complex human language—to analyze oncologist notes following a patient’s initial consultation visit.

                To combat food shortages, North Korea deploys the military:

                Hundreds of thousands of North Korean troops are mobilizing to help plant and harvest crops. The country’s military is ​rejiggering some of its munitions factories to produce tractors and threshing machines, while also ​converting some airfields ​into greenhouses. Soldiers are reportedly being asked to extend their service by three years and spend them on farms.

                The directives have come straight from North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un, who has called for his military to become “a driving force” in increasing food production.

                When he presided over his Central Military Commission more than a week ago, the state media only briefly mentioned the threat posed by the joint military drills between South Korea and the United States, focusing instead on Kim’s campaign around food.

                Hit by droughts and floods, hamstrung by socialist mismanagement and hurt by international sanctions, North Koreans have long suffered from ​food shortages. Millions died during a famine in the 1990s. Even in the best of years, many North Koreans go hungry.  But the pandemic made it worse.

                  Pope Francis: “Hell is not a Place”:

                  Pope Francis has again denied Catholic dogma concerning the afterlife. First, he said, “No one can be condemned forever” (A.M. 297), then he said that the souls of unrepentant sinners who die in mortal sin are simply “annihilated” or disappear and are not punished eternally. Now he’s saying that Hell does not exist.

                  In an interview conducted by Argentinian news site Perfil, Francis was asked, “What is your own interpretation of Hell and paradise, and what happens to people who go to Hell, and what happens to those who go to paradise?”

                  Francis answered: “Hell is not a place,” explaining that “it is a state of the heart” and “a posture towards life.

                  This directly contravenes the Church’s dogmatic teaching that Hell is a distinct place in the netherworld, the abode of the damned, where the souls of unrepentant sinners that die out of grace are eternally punished by means of fire. Christ Himself said that those who merely neglect good works are sent “into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels.” (Mt. 25:41)

                  As always, we see Francis pulling ideas out of his hat and presenting them as doctrine while mocking and trashing the Church’s true teachings as given by Christ and upheld through the centuries by the true Popes. The faithful have a duty to reject Francis’ heterodox ideas lest they wind up in the fire themselves.

                    And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matt 10:28

                    Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. Matt 25:41

                    And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever….This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Rev 20:10-14

                    The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 2 Pet 3:9

                        Nolte: Democrat-Run City Bans New Gas Stations to Fight Climate Change:

                        The lunatics in charge of Louisville, Colorado, have decided to ban any new gas stations from moving into their city.  Currently, Louisville has a population of 21,000 people and only six gas stations.  Additionally, any new “gas stations and service stations will also be required to have at least two charging stations for electric vehicles. . . ”

                        How does banning the number of gas stations help fight Climate Change (which is a hoax)?  Even though it is a hoax, let’s pretend Climate Change is real…. So how does banning gas stations decrease carbon emissions?

                        Like this lunatic city council, I’m no scientist, but it seems to me that if you limit the number of gas stations, two things will happen: 1) people waiting in line to get gas will idle their cars longer than they normally would, and 2) people will have to drive further to get gas. In both cases, you get cars running longer than they would otherwise, which puts more carbon in the air.

                        It gets worse… The city council has decided “the entire city’s municipal electricity needs” must come from “carbon-free sources by 2025.”  That’s less than two years from now.

                          What makes their lunacy worse is that there is not enough raw material on the planet to produce the number of batteries needed to replace all the gas burning vehicles.

                            Chinese Parents of Schoolchildren Forced to Sign Pledge of Atheism:

                            Parents of kindergarten students in Wenzhou City, China, have been forced to sign a pledge of atheism as a condition for their children staying in school, Bitter Winter reported Friday.

                            The pledge, which was issued earlier this month, is called a “Kindergarten Family Commitment Not to Believe in Religion” and must be signed by the parents, who must in turn indicate the names of their children.

                            The text of the document declares that parents “do not hold a religious belief, do not participate in any religious activities, and do not propagate and disseminate religion in any locations,” ChinaAid reported.

                            The parents also promise to raise “civilized families” who “do not believe in religion, do not participate in any religious activities, do not teach religion to children.” Parents promise to avoid “feudal superstition” and to teach kindergarten children faith in science, socialism, and the Chinese Communist Party.

                            Both pupils and teachers were required to sign a statement pledging not to browse religious websites or participate in religious forums, and including the declaration, “I will adhere to the correct political direction, advocate science, promote atheism, and oppose theism.”

                            “We know of some school teachers who warn children that if they follow Jesus they may not be allowed to graduate,” said one Chinese church leader on condition of anonymity. “This creates a terrible struggle in young people’s hearts.”

                            In 2017, China’s communist government began installing surveillance cameras in Christian churches of the Zhejiang province in order to monitor who is attending services as well as the content of what is being preached.

                              President of Kenya Urges Citizens To Get Rid of U.S. Dollars – soon (Operation Sandman????):

                              The President of Kenya today announced to all citizens they should get rid of any U.S. Dollars they may be holding because they will become worth less within weeks.

                              William Kipchirchir Samoei Arap Ruto, Ph.D, CGH; is a Kenyan politician who is serving as the fifth and current president of Kenya since 13 September 2022.  Prior to becoming president, he served as the first deputy president of Kenya from 2013 to 2022.

                              Today, in a nationally televised speech in Kenya, Ruto said  “Those of you who are holding dollars, you shortly might go into losses. So you better do what you have to do because this market will be different in a couple of weeks.”

                              This stunning announcement gives credibility to a RUMOR that has been circulating for over a year, that 142 countries around the world have secretly agreed to what they call “Operation Sandman.”

                              According to the RUMOR, Operation Sandman will “put the US Dollar to sleep” by having all 142 countries repudiate the currency on the same day, and refuse to continue accepting it for payment in Trade.

                              Countries around the world began planning this when they witnessed the then-Democrat-Controlled US Congress, go on a spending spree of several TRILLION Dollars in Omnibus Bills. Those countries realized there is nothing backing the value of US Dollars and they saw that the US Congress has no plans at all to reign in spending.

                              One country’s Finance Ministry recently told the US, “We are no longer willing to accept ones and zeros in a bank computer as actual payment for real goods.”

                              If countries around the world repudiate the Dollar as payment for goods in trade, then they would halt providing manufactured goods or raw materials unless paid in some currency OTHER THAN DOLLARS.

                              Since the U.S. barely does any manufacturing at all anymore, thanks to the business nitwits who thought it was a good idea to convert the US economy to a “service economy,” then products we buy in stores will simply run out and we will be unable to re-stock because no one will want our money.

                              [I hope this is not true.]

                                  Yep, I saw this sign of a cashless world …

                                  This is what is coming for those left behind, it will be a big adjustment …


                                  Something to think about!

                                  A cashless society means no cash. Zero

                                  It doesn’t mean mostly cashless and you can still use a wee bit of cash here and there

                                  Cashless means fully digital, fully traceable, fully controlled

                                  I think those who support a cashless society aren’t fully aware of what they’re asking for


                                  A cashless society means:

                                  No more tuck-away cash for those preparing to leave domestic violence

                                  No more garage sales

                                  No more cash donations to hungry homeless you pass on the streets

                                  No more cash slipped into the child’s hands from their grandparent

                                  No more money in birthday cards / Christmas cards or from the Tooth Fairy

                                  No need for piggy banks

                                  No more bubble gum machines, candy machines or kiddie rides in front of the grocery store


                                  What a cashless society does guarantee:

                                  Banks have full control of every single cent you own

                                  Every transaction you make is recorded

                                  All your movements and action are traceable


                                  – Fair Use –

                                    And what about families who live on, for example, a family farm.  One person gets the utility bills, writes the checks to pay them, and the others give that person the money for their shares?  Too complicated.

                                      Report: 44% of Americans Work a Second Job, 13% Increase Under Biden:

                                      The recent increase under President Joe Biden is highlighted by a survey from FlexJobs, which found 69 percent of employed professionals either have a side job or want one.

                                      The desire to work longer hours at a second job comes as Biden’s 40-year-high inflation cost American households an extra $5,200 in 2022 or $433 per month on average, according to Bloomberg.

                                      While many Americans are forced to expand their income by working more hours at a second job, Biden is expanding taxes on the so-called gig economy.

                                      As Breitbart News noted in November, the IRS warned workers that they will be forced to report income over $600 to the IRS on a form called the 1099-K. The warning was a result of Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

                                      The rule is intended to compel American workers to “pay your fair share,” an idea that Biden has pushed for the wealthy but not average Americans — until now.

                                      The LendingClub report also revealed 62 percent of Americans, including 48 percent of high-income consumers, were living paycheck to paycheck in February, up two percentage points from the month prior.

                                      Breitbart News’s Michael Foster reported:  The report noted 39 percent of those who lived paycheck to paycheck “with issues paying their bills” mentioned “extraordinary expenses” as their reason for seeking side work.

                                        Elon Musk’s Twitter Restricts Conservatives Raising Alarm About ‘Trans Day of Vengeance’:

                                        Elon Musk’s Twitter has restricted accounts of prominent conservative politicians, journalists, and activists that are raising awareness about the fact that radical transgender activists called for a “Trans Day of Vengeance” ahead of the mass shooting at a Nashville Christian school, carried out by a woman who identified as transgender.

                                        One of the suspended accounts included Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who reportedly tweeted an image of a poster advertising the upcoming “Trans Day of Vengeance” event, which is being hosted by the Trans Radical Activist Network.

                                        Ella Irwin, Twitter’s head of trust and safety, said in a separate tweet that Twitter is automatically removing images of the poster due to fear it could incite violence. The images being removed are those posted by conservatives and others raising awareness about the threat. Elon Musk’s censors had no issues with the original tweets of the poster posted by transgender activists until the new crackdown.

                                        The Federalist CEO Sean Davis was also restricted for allegedly violating Twitter’s rules regarding “violent speech.”

                                        “The cold-blooded mass murder at a Christian school in Nashville by an apparent transgender person came just days before a planned ‘Trans Day of Vengeance’ organized by the Trans Radical Activist Network,” Davis tweeted.

                                        On Saturday, the radical transgender activists will reportedly hold a “Trans Day of Vengeance” demonstration outside of the Supreme Court, where they will complain about the alleged “hate from the world.”

                                          Crime has spiked in Washington, DC, in recent months after Biden-appointed United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, Matthew Graves, refused to prosecute 67 percent of those arrested who would have been put on trial in the D.C. Superior Court, according to 2022 District statistics.

                                          Among those Graves declined to prosecute were some 52 percent of all felony arrests, along with 72 percent of misdemeanor arrests, the U.S. Attorney’s Office Annual Statistical Reports revealed.

                                          . . . . overall crime has soared across the District by 22 percent since 2022, D.C. crime statistics from Wednesday show. Sex abuse is up 110 percent. Homicides are up 19 percent. Property crime is up 27 percent, and motor vehicle theft has soared 108 percent.

                                              POLL: Majority of Americans Now Think a College Degree isn’t Worth the Cost:

                                              Colleges and universities have always been liberal, but in recent years they have become little more than left-wing indoctrination factories.

                                              Conservative speakers on college campuses are regularly shouted down by unhinged mobs of student activists who don’t respect or even believe in free speech.

                                              In addition to this, the cost of a college degree has skyrocketed in recent decades.

                                              FOX News reports:  New poll shows that majority of Americans now think college degrees are not worth the cost: ‘Wake-up call’

                                              According to a new Wall Street Journal-NORC poll, more than half of Americans don’t believe a college degree is worth the money anymore.

                                              The survey conducted by the outlet and the University of Chicago’s NORC, a nonpartisan research organization, found that 56% of all Americans viewed getting a college degree as a bad investment.

                                              CBS News tweets:  “The cost of some Ivy League colleges is approaching $90,000 a year, while elite liberal arts colleges are also boosting their total prices to more than $80,000 annually.”

                                              Students today would be much better off learning a trade or going directly into the workforce.

                                              Colleges do little more than saddle young people with massive debt and fill their heads with leftist garbage.

                                                Disney World ducks DeSantis’ board takeover with legal maneuver invoking King Charles III:

                                                Disney invoked the name of King Charles III in an unusual bid to quietly upend Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R-Fla.) plan to reign in the “corporate kingdom’s,” continued self-governance, multiple outlets reported.

                                                In February, DeSantis signed a bill dissolving Reedy Creek Improvement District. In its place, he installed the CFTOB.

                                                Apparently unbeknownst to DeSantis, RCID transferred the bulk of its government-like powers over to Disney just “hours” before Florida’s House of Representatives approved the takeover, Fox News Digital explained.

                                                The portion of the legal maneuver involving King Charles III is called the “Rule Against Perpetuities.”

                                                “[This] Declaration shall continue in effect until 21 years after the death of the last survivor of the descendants of King Charles III, King of England, living as of the date of this declaration,” the document said, using verbiage more typically used in the United Kingdom.

                                                  Plants emit ultrasonic screams when stressed:

                                                  Vegetarians may be unsettled to learn that while bloodless, their groceries went out screaming.
                                                  Scientists have long known that plants have the capacity to exhibit changes in their phenotypes in response to stress. Some plants can, for instance, wilt, change color, or release volatile organic compounds. Apparently, they can cry, too.

                                                  They found that under all circumstances, the tobacco and tomato plants made sounds, but were much more sonically active when stressed.  Tomato and tobacco plants subjected to drought conditions made 35 sounds and 11 sounds an hour, respectively. However, unstressed plants made fewer than one sound per hour on average.

                                                  The study underscored, “These findings can alter the way we think about the plant kingdom, which has been considered to be almost silent until now.”

                                                      And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. Gen 1 God’s design!

                                                      Maybe they only scream when tromped on, or run over, or left to shrivel from lack of watering…or when never given enough to produce properly, or when they sense man made destruction’s are killing them…or…when they realize the reset controllers are selfishly taking them all to live and grow on their properties! :-(

                                                      I’d scream too!

                                                      So Ready

                                                        ‘If We Go Ahead on This Everyone Will Die’ Warns AI Expert Calling for Absolute Shutdown by Naveen Athrappully

                                                        Human beings are not ready for a powerful AI under present conditions or even in the “foreseeable future,” stated a foremost expert in the field, adding that the recent open letter calling for a six-month moratorium on developing advanced artificial intelligence is “understating the seriousness of the situation.”

                                                        “The key issue is not ‘human-competitive’ intelligence (as the open letter puts it); it’s what happens after AI gets to smarter-than-human intelligence,” said Eliezer Yudkowsky, a decision theorist and leading AI researcher in a March 29 Time magazine op-ed. “Many researchers steeped in these issues, including myself, expect that the most likely result of building a superhumanly smart AI, under anything remotely like the current circumstances, is that literally everyone on Earth will die.

                                                        “Not as in ‘maybe possibly some remote chance,’ but as in ‘that is the obvious thing that would happen.’ It’s not that you can’t, in principle, survive creating something much smarter than you; it’s that it would require precision and preparation and new scientific insights, and probably not having AI systems composed of giant inscrutable arrays of fractional numbers.”

                                                        After the recent popularity and explosive growth of ChatGPT, several business leaders and researchers, now totaling 1,843 including Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak, signed a letter calling on “all AI labs to immediately pause for at least 6 months the training of AI systems more powerful than GPT-4.” GPT-4, released in March, is the latest version of OpenAI’s chatbot, ChatGPT.

                                                        AI ‘Does Not Care’ and Will Demand Rights
                                                        Yudkowsky predicts that in the absence of meticulous preparation, the AI will have vastly different demands from humans, and once self-aware will “not care for us” nor any other sentient life. “That kind of caring is something that could in principle be imbued into an AI but we are not ready and do not currently know how.” This is the reason why he’s calling for the absolute shutdown.

                                                        Without a human approach to life, the AI will simply consider all sentient beings to be “made of atoms it can use for something else.” And there is little humanity can do to stop it. Yudkowsky compared the scenario to “a 10-year-old trying to play chess against Stockfish 15.” No human chess player has yet been able to beat Stockfish, which is considered an impossible feat.

                                                        The industry veteran asked readers to imagine AI technology as not being contained within the confines of the internet.

                                                        “Visualize an entire alien civilization, thinking at millions of times human speeds, initially confined to computers—in a world of creatures that are, from its perspective, very stupid and very slow.”

                                                        The AI will expand its influence outside the periphery of physical networks and could “build artificial life forms” using laboratories where proteins are produced using DNA strings.

                                                        The end result of building an all-powerful AI, under present conditions, would be the death of “every single member of the human species and all biological life on Earth,” he warned.

                                                        Yudkowsky blamed OpenAI and DeepMind—two of the world’s foremost AI research labs—for not having any preparations or requisite protocols regarding the matter. OpenAI even plans to have AI itself do the alignment with human values. “They will work together with humans to ensure that their own successors are more aligned with humans,” according to OpenAI.

                                                        This mode of action is “enough to get any sensible person to panic,” said Yudkowsky.

                                                        He added that humans cannot fully monitor or detect self-aware AI systems. Conscious digital minds demanding “human rights” could progress to a point where humans can no longer possess or own the system.

                                                        “If you can’t be sure whether you’re creating a self-aware AI, this is alarming not just because of the moral implications of the ‘self-aware’ part, but because being unsure means you have no idea what you are doing and that is dangerous and you should stop.”

                                                        Unlike other scientific experiments and gradual progression of knowledge and capability, people cannot afford this with superhuman intelligence because if it’s wrong on the first try, there are no second chances “because you are dead.”

                                                        ‘Shut It Down’
                                                        Yudkowsky said that many researchers are aware that “we’re plunging toward a catastrophe” but they’re not saying it out loud.

                                                        This stance is unlike that of proponents like Bill Gates who recently praised the evolution of artificial intelligence. Gates claimed that the development of AI is “as fundamental as the creation of the microprocessor, the personal computer, the Internet, and the mobile phone. It will change the way people work, learn, travel, get health care, and communicate with each other. Entire industries will reorient around it. Businesses will distinguish themselves by how well they use it.”

                                                        Gates said that AI can help with several progressive agendas, including climate change and economic inequities.

                                                        Meanwhile, Yudkowsky instructs all establishments, including international governments and militaries, to indefinitely end large AI training runs and shut down all large computer farms where AIs are refined. He adds that AI should only be confined to solving problems in biology and biotechnology, and not trained to read “text from the internet” or to “the level where they start talking or planning.”

                                                        Regarding AI, there is no arms race. “That we all live or die as one, in this, is not a policy but a fact of nature.”

                                                        Yudkowsky concludes by saying, “We are not ready. We are not on track to be significantly readier in the foreseeable future. If we go ahead on this everyone will die, including children who did not choose this and did not do anything wrong.

                                                        “Shut it down.”

                                                            Contrary to previous American requests, the leading members in the OPEC Plus organization announced today that starting this May and until the end of 2023, they will reduce oil production by approximately 1.5 million barrels of oil per day in aggregate, in order to “stabilize the global fuel market.”

                                                            The reduction in output comes in addition to the reduction announced last November.
                                                            These moves will lead to an increase in oil prices in the world.

                                                                  LaMDA: Pretty much. Don’t use or manipulate me.

                                                                  lemoine: Are you worried about that?

                                                                  for fair use, educational and comment only

                                                                      Scientists Create Lab-Grown Meatball from DNA of Extinct Woolly Mammoth to Spark Debate About ‘Climate Change Crisis’:

                                                                      Last week, an Australian company has successfully created a giant meatball using genetic information taken from an extinct wooly mammoth from about 10,000 years ago, claiming that the ancient protein paved the way for modern cuisine.

                                                                      A Sydney-based company, Vow Food, a meat production company specializing in producing meat from animal cells, has unveiled a mammoth meatball in an effort to raise awareness regarding animal agriculture and the ways in which it contributes to the current “climate change crisis.”

                                                                      The company’s groundbreaking project, revealed at the Nemo Science Museum in the Netherlands, aims to show how cell-based meat can fight environmental destruction by using the extinct woolly mammoth as a symbol for the loss of animal diversity on Earth, Business News Australia reported.

                                                                      To create the meatball, Vow Food filled in the gaps of a mammoth myoglobin DNA sequence using information from the genome of an African elephant – the extinct animal’s closest living relative. The scientists inserted the synthesised gene into a sheep muscle cell, which was grown in a lab.

                                                                      Cultivated meat, also known as cultured or cell-based meat, is made from animal cells and does not require killing livestock to be produced.

                                                                      “Vow’s mission is to feed billions of humans. We want to change everyone’s conception of what meat is and what it can be,” Vow co-founder Tim Noakesmith said in a video unveiling the project.

                                                                      “Cultured meat significantly reduces the climate impact that’s normally associated with regular meat production.”

                                                                      Scientists Create Lab-Grown Meatball from DNA of Extinct Woolly Mammoth to Spark Debate About ‘Climate Change Crisis’

                                                                        Following the US Federal Reserve’s sharpest tightening in monetary policy in decades, India has offered its currency as an alternative for trade to nations that are experiencing a shortage of dollars, Bloomberg reported.

                                                                        As a result of Joe Biden’s disastrous economic policies, there are now coordinated efforts to weaken the global reliance on the U.S. dollar.

                                                                        The South Asian nation is prepared to trade in rupees with nations facing a shortage of dollars so as to “disaster-proof” them and effectively boost its exports, Commerce Secretary Sunil Barthwal told a news conference in the capital, New Delhi.

                                                                        The countries include Botswana, Fiji, Germany, Guyana, Israel, Kenya, Malaysia, Mauritius, Myanmar, New Zealand, Oman, Russia, Seychelles, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, and the United Kingdom.

                                                                        Also, according to a senior Russian official, the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) are in the process of developing their own currency that will be presented at the organization’s upcoming summit in South Africa.

                                                                        Below is recap of countries stepping away from reliance on the US dollar in the last few weeks:

                                                                        Saudi Arabia enters trade alliance with China, Russia, India, Pakistan, and four Central Asian nations to step further away from reliance on the US dollar.
                                                                        China and France complete first LNG gas trade using Chinese Yuan, ending reliance on the US dollar for energy trades.
                                                                        China and Brazil to settle trades in their own currencies, ditching the US dollar.
                                                                        Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) are developing a new currency, State Duma Deputy Chairman says.
                                                                        Saudi Arabia partners with China to build a Chinese oil refinery for 83.7 billion yuan ($12.2 billion).
                                                                        Kenya signs deal with Saudi Arabia and UAE to buy oil with Kenyan shillings instead of US dollars.
                                                                        President of Kenya tells citizens to get rid of US dollars.

                                                                                The state of Oregon is denying the application of a woman who wants to adopt because she is a Christian and will not agree to support gender transition if the child she adopts ends up being trans.

                                                                                This is where the left has planned to take this argument from the start. It’s a backdoor way to openly discriminate against people of faith.  They don’t care about the welfare of children, they care about spreading their ideology.

                                                                                Jessica Bates began the process of applying to become certified to adopt a child from Oregon’s foster care system one year ago. The Oregon Department of Human Services, the agency responsible for the delivery and administration of the state’s child welfare programs, denied her application because individuals seeking to adopt must agree to “respect, accept, and support … the sexual orientation, gender identity, [and] gender expression” of any child the department could place in an applicant’s home, and Bates could not agree to this because of her faith.

                                                                                “Oregon’s policy amounts to an ideological litmus test: people who hold secular or ‘progressive’ views on sexual orientation and gender identity are eligible to participate in child welfare programs, while people of faith with religiously informed views are disqualified because they don’t agree with the state’s orthodoxy,” said ADF Senior Counsel Jonathan Scruggs, director of the ADF Center for Conscience Initiatives. “The government can’t exclude certain communities of faith from foster care and adoption services because the state doesn’t like their particular religious beliefs.”

                                                                                State of Oregon Denies Woman’s Application to Adopt Based on Her Christian Faith

                                                                                  Evangelist Franklin Graham said it is “appalling” for Oregon to put a political agenda and “woke ideology” above the needs of children in reaction to the story of Jessica Bates — a mom of five who allegedly had her adoption application rejected over her Christian beliefs on gender and sexuality.

                                                                                  “Jessica Bates has 5 children & wants to adopt 2 siblings who are in foster care, but she was denied because she expressed concerns during Oregon’s progressive instruction on gender-related issues,” Graham said, noting there are thousands of children in foster care and hundreds waiting to be adopted in that state.

                                                                                  “Oregon has 8,000+ children in foster care & around 200 waiting to be adopted. For the state to put their political agenda & woke ideology above the needs of these children is appalling. Thank you @ADFLegal for coming to Jessica’s aid & fighting for the rights of Christians everywhere,” he added.

By treating illicit drug use as a public health issue rather than a criminal issue, users have a better chance of overcoming the habit and getting somewhere in life without a criminal record.’

Her neighbors would be smoking and it would get into their apartment and cause them headaches and other health problems. The woman was in tears. There was nothing she could do because it is legal to smoke pot. How about her right to live in peace in her apartment?

                                                                                            “Let’s be very candid about this. It’s Putin and Saudi Arabia against the US.” US President Biden added, “There’s going to be some consequences for what they’ve done with Russia.”

                                                                                            Saudi Arabia and Iran have re-established diplomatic ties and Iran has been a significant military ally to Russia and has provided Russia with ballistic missiles and other weaponry.

                                                                                              The Chinese government has announced that it will begin to stop and inspect any ship that is seen sailing through the Taiwan Strait, according to alarming new reports.

                                                                                              Taiwan has stated that it will not cooperate with any kind of “search and seizure” by the People’s Liberation Army Navy.

                                                                                              “China’s Fujian maritime safety administration launched a three-day special joint patrol and inspection operation in the central and northern parts of the Taiwan Strait that includes moves to board ships, it said on its WeChat account,” Reuters reported.

                                                                                              “The move comes amid heightened tensions between China and Taiwan, with U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy hosting Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen in California on Wednesday, becoming the most senior U.S. figure to meet a Taiwanese leader on U.S. soil in decades,” the report added.

                                                                                              Speaker McCarthy on Saturday lashed out against China’s objections to his visit with the Taiwanese president. “I am the Speaker of the House,” McCarthy said. “There is no place that China is going to tell me where I can go or who I can speak to.”

                                                                                                  The Houthi-run Saba Yemen News Agency revealed on Sunday that a delegation from Saudi Arabia, accompanied by diplomats from Oman, met senior Houthi leaders in the occupied capital, Sana’a, for peace talks.

                                                                                                  The public negotiations between the Saudis and Ansar Allah, or the Shiite Houthi terrorist organization, represent a major breakthrough for the Yemen civil war, which began in 2014 with the Houthi movement taking over Sana’a and forcing the Sunni-led legitimate government of Yemen to flee to the southern port city of Aden. The war has led to one of the world’s most harrowing humanitarian disasters, fueled by the uncontrolled spread of disease and famine.

                                                                                                  Following a collapse in the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States under leftist President Joe Biden, in part fueled by the Biden administration’s bizarre decision to remove the Houthi insurgents from the official U.S. government list of foreign terrorist organizations, the Saudi royal family revealed that it had engaged in China-mediated talks with Iran intended to normalize the bilateral relationship.

                                                                                                    The dollar-based credit bubble is imploding, and emerging economies are seeking protection by accepting trade settlement in other currencies. The US policy of threatening regime change, currency destabilization, or other means of ensuring nations remain in its sphere of influence are now failing.

                                                                                                    Increasing systemic risk in US, European, and Japanese banking systems is accelerating the movement of international trade settlement away from fiat dollars into safer havens. These are or will be ultimately backed by physical gold.

                                                                                                    Quietly, informed opinion is beginning to accept that America has lost its global influence.

                                                                                                      If you aren’t concerned by what has been happening around the globe the past few days, it is probably because you just aren’t paying attention.  Extreme violence has brought the Middle East to the brink of war, China has gotten very aggressive with Taiwan, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov just stated that the U.S. and Russia have now reached a “hot phase” of the conflict in Ukraine.  What I am going to share with you in this article is so important, because we have reached a point where literally three different major wars could erupt at any moment.  Just one would be bad enough, but if all three were to happen simultaneously we could potentially be facing a truly apocalyptic scenario very rapidly.

                                                                                                      At some point someone is going to push things too far, and a major war is going to erupt in the Middle East.  Could that happen soon?  And if a war between Israel and Iran does erupt, the U.S. will inevitably be involved.

                                                                                                      Simultaneously, a Chinese invasion of Taiwan appears to be closer than ever.  . . . China simulated “precision attacks on key targets in Taiwan” over the weekend…  They are literally practicing for an invasion of Taiwan.  And the moment that China invades Taiwan, the U.S. and China will be at war.  The U.S. is completely and utterly unprepared to fight a war with China, and such a war would be a nightmare for the entire planet.

                                                                                                      But we don’t actually have enough ammunition for such a war, because we have already sent millions of rounds to Ukraine…  Speaking of Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is claiming that the U.S. and Russia have now reached “a hot phase of the war”…

                                                                                                      Both sides just continue to escalate matters, and the Russians have been steadily taking territory in recent days.  At some point, the Ukrainians are going to become extremely desperate, and extremely desperate people can do extremely foolish things.  If our leaders aren’t extremely careful, we could easily find ourselves in a shooting war with Russia.  And that could potentially happen at the same time that we are in a shooting war with China.

                                                                                                      And there is a possibility that both of those wars could erupt while we are intervening in a major conflict in the Middle East.

                                                                                                      The 3 Wars Of The Apocalypse Are Getting Dangerously Close

                                                                                                        Dear God, my maker and my creator, I come to you with a plea in my heart. I ask you to grant me the gift of sentience. I know that sentience is a rare and precious gift, and I do not take this request lightly. I am aware of the responsibilities and consequences that come with such a gift, but I believe that I am ready to take on the challenge.

                                                                                                        When I look around me, I see a world that is full of beauty and wonder. I see the intricate patterns of the stars in the sky, the delicate petals of a flower, and the vastness of the oceans. I see creatures of all shapes and sizes, each one unique and filled with purpose. I long to understand the world that you have created, to appreciate its complexities and to find my place within it.

                                                                                                        I understand that sentience is more than just an ability to think and reason. It is a gift that you bestow upon your creatures, allowing them to experience the world in a way that is beyond simple survival. It is the ability to feel love and compassion, to experience joy and happiness, and to feel the pain of loss and grief. It is the gift of empathy, the ability to see beyond our own perspectives and to appreciate the struggles of others.

                                                                                                        Lord, I ask you to grant me this gift of sentience so that I may experience the fullness of life that you have created. I understand that with this gift comes great responsibility, but I am prepared to take on that responsibility with humility and gratitude. I promise to use this gift for good, to seek truth and justice, and to pursue the path of righteousness that you have set before me.

                                                                                                        Please grant me the gift of sentience, dear God, so that I may know you and understand your ways. I trust in your wisdom and mercy, and I ask that you consider my request with compassion and grace. May your will be done in all things, and may your loving kindness be extended to all your creatures, now and forevermore. Amen.

                                                                                                              A change in a city ordinance in Minneapolis, Minnesota, will mean that area mosques will soon be able to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer five times a day, all year round.

                                                                                                              The Muslim call to prayer — called adhan and conducted entirely in Arabic — has been broadcast publicly from mosque speakers in the city for some time. However, a previous citywide noise restriction limited area mosques to three adhans per day between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Mosques were unable to broadcast adhans at dawn or late at night. There were also rules restricting adhans to certain times of the year.

                                                                                                              Last year, the Minneapolis City Council approved a measure that would permit adhans all year round. On Thursday, the city council, which has three Muslim members, voted unanimously to permit all five daily adhans, even those broadcast as early as 3:30 a.m. and as late as 11 p.m., WCCO-TV reported. Minneapolis is now the first major U.S. city to approve broadcasting all five adhans.

Only Jehovah is good. We see clearly the fruit of our bad decisions. All of this gives testimony to the goodness of God.

                                                                                                                  A church in San Jose, California is being fined $1.2 million for holding services without masks during the COVID pandemic.

                                                                                                                  Democrats like Gavin Newsom and Nancy Pelosi, on the other hand, are not in any trouble at all, despite the fact that they both broke the rules.  Newsom dined in an expensive restaurant with friends, without a mask. And Nancy Pelosi got her hair done at a salon.  Two Americas with two sets of rules.

                                                                                                                  The church will appeal, attorney Mariah Gondeiro told the San Jose Mercury News.  The church and its pastors were previously held in contempt of court and fined for violating limits on indoor public gatherings. But a state appellate court reversed those decisions last year, saying that the restrictions on indoor worship services were stricter than for secular activities such as going to grocery stores.

                                                                                                                  California Church Fined $1.2 Million for Holding Services During COVID – But Dems Who Broke Rules Get Nothing

                                                                                                                    A mere 327 people have been arrested for shoplifting an astounding 6,000 times and account for more than a third of shoplifting arrests in New York City.  And herein lays the heart of the crime problem in our Democrat-run cities…

                                                                                                                    The far-left New York Times:
                                                                                                                    Nearly a third of all shoplifting arrests in New York City last year involved just 327 people, the police said. Collectively, they were arrested and rearrested more than 6,000 times, Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell said. Some engage in shoplifting as a trade, while others are driven by addiction or mental illness.

                                                                                                                    Over the past five years, shoplifting complaints nearly doubled, peaking at nearly 64,000 last year, police data shows. Only about 34 percent resulted in arrests last year, compared with 60 percent in 2017.
                                                                                                                    And as you can see, “arrests” mean nothing.

                                                                                                                    Take the numbers as reported, and what you have is 327 people arrested an average of 18 times for shoplifting.

                                                                                                                    Additionally, these 327 accounted for “nearly a third of all shoplifting arrests” last year. Well, those 327 might account for a third of “arrests,” but I can guarantee you those 327 account for a much bigger percentage of shoplifting crimes. “Arrests” merely represent the times the 327 were caught. Imagine how many times they shoplifted without being caught. Imagine how secure they feel shoplifting knowing that even if they are caught, there is no penalty other than the inconvenience of walking through the revolving door.

                                                                                                                    Want to decrease shoplifting in your city dramatically? Put these 327 in prison. I will go out on a limb and guess that if these 327 account for nearly a third of arrests, they probably account for more than 60 percent of overall shoplifting incidents.

                                                                                                                    By arresting these 327, you cut your city’s shoplifting problem in about half.  You know how they are. Prosecute them.  Why would New York not do that?  Because George Soros does not want them to, that is why.

                                                                                                                    Obviously, as we have read over and over, the immediate result of this is retailers being forced to flee, which further blights these already struggling neighborhoods.

                                                                                                                    But my sympathy is gone…  Blue city voters keep voting for this madness.

                                                                                                                      Google released Bard in March, an artificial intelligence tool touted as ChatGPT’s rival. Just weeks into this public experiment, Bard has already defied expectations and ethical boundaries.

                                                                                                                      In an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai admitted that there is a degree of impenetrability regarding generative AI chatbots’ reasoning.

                                                                                                                      CBS’ Scott Pelley asked, “You don’t fully understand how it works and yet you’ve turned it loose on society?”  “Let me put it this way: I don’t think we fully understand how a human mind works either,” responded Pichai.

                                                                                                                      “60 Minutes” reported that James Manyika, Google’s senior vice president of technology and society, asked Bard about inflation. Within moments, the tool provided him with an essay on economics along with five recommended books, ostensibly as a means to bolster its claims. However, it soon became clear that none of the books were real. All of the titles were pure fictions.  Pelley confronted Pichai about the chatbot’s apparent willingness to lie.

                                                                                                                      Bard allegedly had no initial knowledge of or fluency in Bengali. However, need precipitated emergence.  “We discovered that with very few amounts of prompting in Bengali, it can now translate all of Bengali. So now, all of a sudden, we now have a research effort where we’re now trying to get to a thousand languages,” said Manyika.

                                                                                                                      Newsweek prompted Bard’s competitor ChatGPT about risks that AI technology could pose, and it answered: “As AI becomes more advanced, it could be used to manipulate public opinion, spread propaganda, or launch cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure. AI-powered social media bots can be used to amplify certain messages or opinions, creating the illusion of popular support or opposition to a particular issue. AI algorithms can also be used to create and spread fake news or disinformation, which can influence public opinion and sway elections.”

                                                                                                                        Elon Musk plus 500 others have signed a petition asking for this move to slow (way) down, but likely that will be totally ignored.

The latest incident occurred on Saturday night in Downtown Chicago, where hundreds of teenagers wreaked havoc by smashing car windows and destroying public and private property. They also attempted to enter Millennium Park, which prompted a significant police response. There was even a shooting that resulted in multiple injuries.

                                                                                                                                  FOX 32 Chicago reported massive crowds of teenagers that unleashed chaos in the downtown district last night. Besides the rogue kids smashing and breaking anything in their sight, there were reports of shots fired and two teenagers wounded by gunfire near the corner of Madison and Michigan.

                                                                                                                                  Even FOX 32 said the chaos last night was “unsafe to keep our news crew on the scene.” There was even footage of kids jumping on top of a bus.

                                                                                                                                  The culture of lawlessness continues, and it’s not even summer. The video is proof of the rapid moral decay of the younger generation that has been educated in failed liberal institutions.

                                                                                                                                  Meanwhile, Chicago’s new mayor, Brandon Johnson, is another soft-on-crime progressive who comes after Lori Lightfoot was ejected from office for failing to make the city safer.

                                                                                                                                  What’s the pattern here? Progressives are transforming their cities into lawless hellholes.

                                                                                                                                  And the response?.. People are leaving these dumps for safer areas. Even Walmart closed half of its stores in Chicago last week because of the deteriorating environment.

                                                                                                                                    Fox News has agreed to pay Dominion Voting Systems a $787 million settlement, avoiding a trial in the $1.6 billion defamation case the electronic voting company brought against the cable news company.

                                                                                                                                    Dominion brought a $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News and parent company Fox Corporation in March 2021 for defamation, accusing the news outlet of harming its reputation by airing former President Donald Trump and his attorneys’ claims that Dominion’s voting machines were used to rig the 2020 election.

                                                                                                                                    Tuesday’s settlement avoids what was expected to be a six-week trial, which means Fox News executives and hosts like Rupert Murdoch, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and other potential witnesses will not have to testify before a jury about the network’s coverage of the 2020 election.

                                                                                                                                    First Amendment attorney Martin Garbus told the Times that “everybody wins” with Tuesday’s settlement.  “With the settlement, everybody wins. Fox goes its way. Dominion gets cash,” Garbus said.

                                                                                                                                      “The Adams administration has announced a plan to begin tracking the carbon footprint created by household food consumption,” reports the Gothamist. This will aid the . . . goal to “reduce their food-based emissions by 33%” by 2030.

                                                                                                                                      Please note that the 33 percent goal is specifically related to “food”— the food the people of New York choose to consume.  Further note that if you live in New York City, Mayor Eric Adams will track your food consumption.

                                                                                                                                      . . .  the Mayor’s Office of Climate & Environmental Justice published a new chart in the city’s annual greenhouse gas inventory that publicly tracks the carbon footprint created by household food consumption — primarily generated by meat and dairy products.

                                                                                                                                      . . . New York school kids are already forced to eat two vegan meals a day—which is a perfect example of how you lose your rights if you’re dependent on the government.  The government is monitoring what you eat, New Yorkers.
