Highlights From the 2023 Omnibus Act

Following up on a claim that the US Fedgov 2023 Omnibus spending bill implements vehicle kill switches, I broke down and read the stupid thing.

At least, I did a bunch of keyword searches. I’m not masochistic, but that means this isn’t exhaustive.

Most of the big-ticket amounts are earmarked for purchasing energy plants and infrastructure. De facto nationalization of the energy infrastructure?

Page 159: …For reimbursement of expenses of the Department of Justice associated with processing cases under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, $31,738,000, to be appropriated from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund and to remain available until expended.

Fedgov is already tapping reserves to pay costs regarding child vaxx injuries.

Page 189: $13,000,000 for a grant program to prevent and address economic, high technology, white collar, and Internet crime, including as authorized by section 401 of Public Law 110.403, of which not less than $2,500,000 is for intellectual property enforcement grants including as authorized by section 401, and $2,000,000 is for grants to develop databases on Internet of Things device capabilities and to build and execute training modules for law enforcement

Note the boldfaced wording. They aren’t trying to punish crime; they intend to use the Internet of Things to prevent crime. Not sure how that would work. Building a database on how various devices might be used illegally is… oh, that’s right. It’s not a crime when government does it. This supplements a directly assigned $15M.

Page 1046: For an additional amount for expenses necessary to prepare for or respond to an influenza pandemic, $335,000,000; of which $300,000,000 shall be available until expended, for activities including the development and purchase of vaccine, antivirals, necessary medical supplies, diagnostics, and other surveillance tools: Provided, That notwithstanding section 496(b) of the PHS Act, funds may be used for the construction or renovation of privately owned facilities for the production of pandemic influenza vaccines and other biologics, if the Secretary finds such construction or renovation necessary to secure sufficient supplies of such vaccines or biologics.

The concept of public-private partnership is alive and well in our literally fascist Regime. Meanwhile, $335M for the next wave of vaxxing but $28M for the damages of the previous wave of vaxxing.

Page 1676 funds $1M to the development of a government-run rideshare service. It’s doomed to fail, which explains the small amount.

Page 1307: For necessary expenses to carry out… the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, for global health activities, in addition to funds otherwise available for such purposes, $4,165,950,000… and which shall be apportioned directly to the United States Agency for International Development.

$4.2b straight out of America…

That funds appropriated under this paragraph may be made available for United States contributions to The GAVI Alliance and to a multilateral vaccine development partnership to support epidemic preparedness.

…and into the Gates Foundation’s GAVI Alliance. The next Plandemic just got funded.

Page 1441: …The authority of… the Arms Export Control Act (2217 U.S.C. 2763) may be used to provide financing to Israel, Egypt, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and major non-NATO allies for the procurement by leasing (including leasing with an option to purchase) of defense articles from United States commercial suppliers, not including Major Defense Equipment…

That boldfaced means Ukraine. USA has run out of munitions to give Zelensky so they’re resorting to what Socialists always do and are throwing money at the problem.

I sense something sinister about our national defense being so easily depleted. When the ethnic strife from endless immivasion kicks off, the National Guard will have no ability to control it. Which would be a textbook justification for a U.N. peacekeeping mission into North America.

Page 1536: $90,500,000 shall be made available for programs to pro19 mote Internet freedom globally: Provided, That such programs shall be prioritized for countries whose governments restrict freedom of expression on the Internet

CEO Elon Musk says hey to GAE.

…and that are important to the national interest of the United States.

Hmm. Freedom of expression, but only in countries hostile to the United States? Let’s dig further.

…for programs to… promote Internet freedom and access to information in Iran, as required by section 414 of the Iran Threat Reduction…

Hello, Israel! $90M to destabilize Iran by foisting your porn sites upon them. Did you get any other funding?

Page 366: Of the amounts appropriated in this Act under the headings ..Procurement, Defense-Wide.. and ..Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Defense-Wide.., $500,000,000 shall be for the Israeli Cooperative Programs…

Specifically the Iron Dome system.

Page 1317: $5,000,000 shall be made available for refugees resettling in Israel.

Not Squatemalans, I’m guessing.


Page 1447: LIMITATION ON ASSISTANCE..None of the funds appropriated under titles III through VI of this Act may be provided to support a Palestinian state…

Page 1463: Of the funds appropriated by this Act under the heading ..Foreign Military Financing Program.., not less than $3,300,000,000 shall be available for grants only for Israel which shall be disbursed within 30 days of enactment of this Act.

((Thieves!)) You cannot spend $3.3b in thirty days with ANY kind of oversight.

Page 1531: …The Secretary of State shall report to the Committees on Appropriations not later than September 30, 2023, on the resolutions considered in the United Nations Human Rights Council during the previous 12 months, and on steps taken to remove Israel as a permanent agenda item…

And human rights violators!

SEC. 701. DESIGNATION OF THE KOL ISRAEL FOUNDATION HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL AS A NATIONAL MEMORIAL. Congress recognizes the significance of the Kol Israel Foundation Holocaust Memorial in preserving the memory of the 6,000,000 Jews murdered by the Nazi regime and allies and collaborators of the Nazi regime; and (2) honors the life and legacy of the Holocaust survivors who erected the Kol Israel Foundation Holocaust Memorial.

It’s FAR past time to close the books on World War 2. All the people involved are dead or close enough. The overcounted deaths of not-my-people in not-my-war on not-my-continent is not-my-problem. And shouldn’t be Congress’ either.

I wonder if that boldfaced is intended to mean Trump voters.

Enough with the Juice.


Self-explanatory. I do not approve. Government doing nothing would be beneficial because zero isn’t negative. I wonder how this got into the bill, considering that Tiktok is notorious Chicomm spyware. Haven’t they purchased enough politicians to get away with a little malware?


Yeah, it’s totally in the open now. The US government is merely the pocketbook for third-party entities. No wonder they’re adding 86,000 IRS agents. Collecting taxes is the only government function being left to them.

…ESTABLISHMENT OF PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP CONTRIBUTIONS ACCOUNTS..The Secretary shall establish the necessary accounts and process to accept contributions of private funds for the purposes of addressing the changing climate, sequestering carbon, improving wildlife habitat, protecting sources of drinking water, and addressing other natural resource priorities identified by the Secretary…

Can you say “conflict of interest”? Not if you work for Fedgov. “We’ll give you free money if you identify our agenda as your priority.”

This is depressing. On the upside, I didn’t find any mention of kill switches for private vehicles, which is what started this search in the first place. Perhaps the next claim will come with a reference.

Are Stock Markets Where Money Goes To Die? Your Secure 2.0 Retirement

Me being a poor economist, I cannot comprehend the full consequences of the U.S. Federal government deciding that retirement investing in the stock market should be opt-out rather than opt-in. But they promise to be SPECTACULAR.

Spending Bill Aids Retirement Saving – And the Financial Sector

Los Angeles Times, dead tree edition page A7

By Fatima Hussein, 27 December 2022

A section of the $1.7T spending bill passed Friday has been billed as a dramatic step toward shoring up retirement acounts of millions of U.S. workers But the real windfall may go to a far more secure group: the financial services industry.

When even the Fatima Husseins are getting suspicious about what the banksters are doing, it’s bad.

The retirement savings measure labeled Secure 2.0 would reset how people enroll in retirements plans – from requiring them to opt in to requiring them to opt out. The provision is designed to ensure greater participation.

Yep, that’s bad. I’ve never liked the idea of the government forcing me to buy stuff from third parties even when it was just car insurance. Now the government punishes me for not buying medical care from Approved Vendors. Tomorrow, I’ll have to get government permission to NOT piss my money into penny stocks?

Do you remember the furor when Obamacare got passed in the dead of night? I remember that the only people who never offered an opinion, were the insurance companies themselves. What did they think about the government forcing all of North America to be their customer? I really, really wanted to know.

I still do. Because they never talked and nobody else thought to ask.

It also allows workers to use their student loan payments as a substitute for their contributions to retirement plans – meaning they can get matching retirement contributions from their employers by paying off that debt – increases the age for required distributions from plans and expands a tax-deductible saver’s credit.

Translation, the government will stuff taxpayer dollars into the stock markets by first “giving” it to student-loan slaves, with the requirement that they’re never allowed to take it out of the stock markets.

Hmm. It’s money that technically exists but functionally doesn’t.

But as with so many far-reaching spending bills that get little public consideration…

If it wasn’t for domestic terrorists setting fire to the local Sixbucks coffee shop, these bills would get no consideration from the public at all. What a beautiful world it would be, if the local newspaper told its readers what new laws were being actively considered so people could insist on being a participant in America’s proudly fortified democracy. That would be informative and valuable of them, but no, instead they bitch how they’re all going out of business. It’s because you journos are too scared of responsibility to do anything but repeat the AP and Reuters feeds, and then only to tell us what our masters have already decided we want. You’re all the same, so the general public only needs one of you. Hit the tip jar on your way out. I just told you how to save your career… if you are willing.

…provisions of this legislation also benefit corporate interests with a strong financial interest in the outcome.

“Some of these provisions are good and we want to save – but this is a huge boon to the financial services industry,” said Monique Morisey, an economist at the liberal Economic Policy Institute in Washington. Some parts of the bill, she said, are “disguised as savings incentives.”

Probably all the parts are, but there’s no chance that I would understand the all-too-Orwellian-named Secure 2.0… um, sub-bill. The “woulda been called the Secure 2.0 Act except it was passed as part of a gigantic sales receipt.”

Daniel Halperin, a Harvard law professor who specializes in tax policy and retirement savings, said one of the most clear benefits to industry is the provision that gradually increases the age from 72 to 75. “The goal is to leave that money there for as long as possible,” in order to collect administrative fees, he said. “For people who have $5 [million] to $7 [million] to $10 million saved, firms keep collecting fees. It’s crazy to allow them to leave it there.”

Not crazy at all. Even being a financial midwit, I can think of a really good reason to stuff the stock market as full of dollars as possible, for as long as possible. All this inflation we’re having right now? It’s because the government melted the money printers during the Plandemic. So, the inflation will go away if the government seizes & confiscates an equal amount of money.

Am I right? I don’t know, but this is the real promise of CBDC currencies, that the government can simply delete your money in pace with its spending. The holdup is probably them trying to figure out how to make one last for longer than a week, before the people in control of the spending side murder each other in a Night Of Long Knives for the chance to be a God O’ Dough.

This sounds like how they’d do it without waiting for everybody to adopt crypto. Force everybody to pay a percentage into the stock markets and then oops, it’s gone.

Strike that. The money still exists and is still yours, but you aren’t allowed to ever use it again. Which is de facto “oops, it’s gone”.

Companies like Blackrock Funds Services Group, Prudential Financial and Pacific Life Insurance and business lobbying groups such as the Business Roundtable and American Council of Life Insurers are only some of the entities that lobbied lawmakers on Secure 2.0, Senate lobbying disclosures show.

Retiring Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin (D. Md.) had been ushering Secure 2.0 through the massive spending bill onown as an omnibus. Nearly half of the 92 provisions in Secure 2.0 come, in full or part, from Cardin-Portman legislation that was approved unanimously by the Senate Finance Committee in the summer.”


h ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Cardin

Benjamin Louis Cardin was born in Baltimore, Maryland. The family name was originally “Kardonsky”, before it was changed to “Cardin”. Cardin’s grandparents were Russian Jewish immigrants. His grandfather, Benjamin Green, operated a neighborhood grocery store that later turned into a wholesale food distribution company. His mother, Dora (Green), was a schoolteacher, and his father, Meyer Cardin, served in the Maryland House of Delegates (1935.1937) and later sat on the Baltimore City Supreme Bench (1961.1977).

Cardin and his family attended the Modern Orthodox Beth Tfiloh Congregation near their home, with which the family had been affiliated for three generations.

Every single time. Bolsheviks came in and went straight to the top.

End segue

Still, the latest legislation is a small step meant to assist the millions of Americans who haven’t saved for retirement.

Whether we want to or not, and regardless of what kind of investment and retirement we want. Fortified democracy at its finest!

FTX Pleads Guilty At the Speed Of Science

This turned out to be a very prescient comment from the Z-Man blog:

h ttps://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=28913#comment-334755

Tars Tarkas on December 23, 2022 at 11:44 am said:
This whole SBF thing stinks to the high heavens. His co-conspirators all plead guilty already. WHAT?! WHY?! You can’t plea guilty to shoplifting in such a short time frame. It takes longer to go to traffic court for a speeding ticket. They don’t even know yet to the extent they would possibly need any cooperation. Does anyone believe they have fully went over the books and transactions and unwound all this in the time frame since the bankruptcy?

ALL OF THEM should be getting life in prison without parole. No deals, at least not yet. Why all of them? People are sent to prison for life for far less.

It just shows there are laws for us and laws for them.

At the time, I just shrugged and figured the second-tier crooks were rushing to turn state’s evidence before the state decided it had enough evidence to prosecute the incredibly protected first-tier crooks. It’s the only play in the FBI playbook, getting the perps to tattle on each other. Using informants is but a variation on the play.

Turns out I was right, but it wasn’t that simple.

FTX.s Gary Wang, Alameda’s Caroline Ellison plead guilty to federal charges, cooperating with prosecutors

h ttps://www.cnbc.com/2022/12/22/ftxs-gary-wang-alamedas-caroline-ellison-plead-guilty-to-federal-charges-cooperating-with-prosecutors.html

By MacKenzie Sigalos & Rohan Goswami, 21 December 2022

FTX co-founder Gary Wang and former Alameda Research co-CEO Caroline Ellison have both pleaded guilty to federal charges, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, Damian Williams, said Wednesday.

Wang pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit commodities fraud and conspiracy to commit securities fraud. Ellison pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud, two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit commodities fraud, conspiracy to commit securities fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The duo’s plea agreements were signed Monday, the day Bankman-Fried was originally supposed to return to the U.S. before a court hearing in the Bahamas devolved into chaos.

Yep, that fits exactly with my opening assumption.

Wait a minute… what do they mean, “the charges were RELEASED”?

Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Michael J. Driscoll, the Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (.FBI.), announced the extradition of SAMUEL BANKMAN-FRIED, a/k/a .SBF,. yesterday from the Bahamas.

Also unsealed are the guilty pleas of CAROLINE ELLISON, former CEO of Alameda Research, and GARY WANG, co-founder and former Chief Technology Officer of FTX. ELLISON and WANG pled guilty before U.S. District Judge Ronnie Abrams on December 19, 2022, to charges arising from their participation in schemes to defraud FTX.s customers and investors, and related crimes, and are cooperating with the Government.

What? Indictments and warrants get sealed in order to not alert the perps before a mass arrest can be done. Why would one sealed a FELONY CRIMINAL CONVICTION? And why would those records be sealed for only three days?

FBI Assistant Director Michael J. Driscoll said: .With the pleas announced today, Ms. Ellison and Mr. Wang admitted they were willing participants in schemes to defraud FTX.com’s customers and backers out of their money…”

Updated December 22, 2022

Western Rifle Shooters has a screencap of exactly what got updated.

“Also unsealed are the guilty pleas of CAROLINE ELLISON, former CEO of Alameda Research, and GARY WANG, co-founder and former Chief Technology Officer of FTX. ELLISON and WANG pled guilty before U.S. District Judge Ronnie Abrams on January 19, 2022”.

That would change EVERYTHING about this case, and destroy either the Regime or the rule of law as well. Maybe it was just a typo?

I was unable to find a source confirming a January 2022 sealing date. Between that and what would (should) be nation-ending consequences, I believe it was just a typo.

Also, I discovered a plausible reason why they would seal convictions for three days.

Judge kept FTX execs’ plea deals secret to get founder to US

h ttps://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory/judge-ftx-execs-plea-deals-secret-founder-us-95756520

NEW YORK — A judge kept secret that two of Sam Bankman-Fried.s closest associates had turned against him so the cryptocurrency entrepreneur wouldn’t get spooked and fight extradition from the Bahamas, according to court transcripts made public Friday.

I was instantly suspicious when Bankster-Fraud was reported as AGREEING to extradition. The honor system is not how extradition works. Why would any Jewish crook agree to going home to face multiple life sentences instead of ((going home)) to Tel Aviv?

U.S. prosecutors in New York waited until Bankman-Fried, the founder of the collapsed crypto exchange FTX, was in FBI custody before revealing that his business partners, Carolyn Ellison and Gary Wang, had secretly pleaded guilty to fraud charges and were cooperating, which can earn them leniency at sentencing.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams announced the guilty pleas when Bankman-Fried was in the air late Wednesday.

Afro Sam’s ((cousins)) are not playing nice with him like they usually do.

Prosecutors had been concerned that if Bankman-Fried found out his friends were cooperating, he might try to fight extradition from the Bahamas, where he had been arrested at the request of U.S. authorities.

I sense much leverage being applied to the Bahamas government. Also, I sense that Afro Sam is about to have a very bad future if he cannot find the cash to repay a certain few investors. That $250m bond he posted to walk free is surely just the down payment, and seeing as he is NOT currently in Tel Aviv living the life of a billionaire pervert, I don’t see a bright future for him.

Which also argues against a January 2022 sealed-conviction conspiracy. Allowing FTX to fund the Democrat machine for the midterm elections is a compelling motive, but the inner circle would not allow THEIR money to be risked in such a scheme.

I think it’s unprecedented to have the convictions be sealed in order to trick the next perp. It would be interesting to read exactly what Afro Sam thought he was agreeing to. But then, his being arrested by the Bahamas government before agreeing to U.S. extradition might be EXACTLY why he isn’t in Tel Aviv at this moment.

This ABC News article didn’t name the judge who agreed to seal the convictions.

Judge Ronnie Abrams recuses self from Sam Bankman-Fried case because husband’s firm advised FTX

h ttps://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/judge-ronnie-abrams-recuses-self-from-sam-bankman-fried-case-because-husband-s-firm-advised-ftx/ar-AA15CeES

By Patrick Reilly, 23 December 2022

The federal judge slated to oversee FTX founder Sam Bankman Fried’s case has recused herself because her husband’s law firm advised the bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange.

Ronnie Abrams, a district judge for the Southern District of New York, said in a court order on Friday that the law firm of Davis Polk and Wardwell LLP . where her husband is a partner . advised FTX in 2021.

If this was true then she would have recused herself long before “agreeing” to seal the criminal convictions of two of FTX’s officers in order to trick a Jew into returning to Jew York City. I’ve a hunch that her participation was not entirely voluntary.

Abrams. husband, Greg D. Andres, is former Brooklyn federal prosecutor who later served as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department, The New York Times reported earlier this month.

Andres was part of special counsel Robert S. Mueller’s team that investigated Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Before she was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2012…

What a small world it is at the top. A brief review of Judge Abrams’ history shows that she is very comfortable with conflicts of interest… here’s one…


Obama Appointed Judge whose Husband Was a Member of the Mueller Gang Overturned a Unanimous Jury Conviction of Burisma Board Member Devon Archer

h ttps://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/02/obama-appointed-judge-whose-husband-was-a-member-of-the-mueller-gang-overturned-a-unanimous-jury-conviction-of-burisma-board-member-devon-archer/

By Joe Hoft, 20 February 2020

“A federal judge on Thursday overturned the conviction of a New York man on charges that he helped run a scheme to defraud a Native American tribe and multiple pension funds through the issue of $60 million worth of tribal bonds.

U.S. District Judge Ronnie Abrams in Manhattan ruled that the evidence at the trial earlier this year had not shown that the man, Devon Archer, knew that the bond issue was fraudulent, or that he received any personal benefit from it. Abrams said she was “left with an unwavering concern that Archer is innocent of the crimes charged..

She upheld the convictions of John Galanis and Bevan Cooney, who were tried and convicted alongside Archer.”

So the judge whose husband was a member of the Mueller gang overturned the unanimous jury conviction of Devon Archer after having a change of heart? Who said there is a two-tiered system of justice?

For context here, Devon Archer cofounded Rosemont Holdings with Hunter Biden. Judge Abrams suddenly deciding he must have been innocent after a jury unanimously found him guilty, says everything you need to know about 1. her connections and 2. her vulnerability to ‘pressure from the top’.

What a small world it is at the top.

End Segue

…So, the REAL reason she recused herself after helping to trick Afro Sam into returning, is because that was the moment she discovered exactly how much pain was going to drop on Afro Sam. She didn’t want none of that! Nobody wants to be the grease between the satanic plutocrats and the tool who pricked them.

My initial hunch was right after all. The reason this criminal “investigation” is moving so quickly, is simply because… well, Z-Man once had an interesting insight that stuck with me. All these clever banksters and goblins, when they’re doing their thieving and grifting, they play ten-dimensional chess and the long game perfectly, but if you hurt them… REALLY hurt them, even if it’s just a toothache… they lash out blindly and with no regard for consequences.

Afro Sam stole from his own Tribe of thieves, and thus, everything about this case has had the subtlety of a dragon hunting for the thief who stole a single cup.

How the Grinch Failed To Steal Christ From Christmas, 2022 Edition

It just wouldn’t be Christmas without sleigh bells ringing and atheists whining that Christ is still part of Christmas. Why do they care? I never see articles of atheists trying to explain away Islam or Hinduism, especially not articles timed for their holy days.

And why do they never understand the very topics that they’ve devoted their entire lives to understanding?

Why early Christians wouldn’t have found the Christmas story’s virgin birth so surprising

h ttps://theconversation.com/why-early-christians-wouldnt-have-found-the-christmas-storys-virgin-birth-so-surprising-194133

By Rodolfo Galvan Estrada III, Assistant Professor of the New Testament, Vanguard University, 15 December 2022

Pretentious names much? If Rodolfo Galvan Estrada III understood his subject of expertise well enough to believe it, then he’d be able to pray for tenure. He ain’t gonna get it on merits like this one!

Every year on Christmas, Christians celebrate the birth of their religion’s founder, Jesus from Nazareth of Galilee. Part of this celebration includes the claim that Jesus was born from a virgin mother named Mary, which is fundamental to the Christian understanding that Jesus is the divine son of God.

So far, so good. Although one can tell from the structure of the very first sentence that this is an atheist speaking. “The birth of their religion’s founder, Jesus from Nazareth”? Is there something that you’re trying to NOT profess, Professor?

The virgin birth may seem strange to a modern audience . and not just because it runs counter to the science of reproduction. Even in the Bible itself, the idea is rarely mentioned.

And off the rails we go!

Strikingly, the New Testament is relatively silent on the virgin birth except in two places. It appears only in the gospels of Matthew and Luke, written a few decades after Jesus. death.

I don’t know about the dating of the earliest surviving manuscripts. But the reason Matthew and Luke are in the Gospels and not the apocrypha, is because their works were able to be sourced back to Matthew and Luke specifically.

Atheists love to forget that Christianity got its start while the people who had met that miracle-working Christ were still alive. If I told you that Larry the plumber from Galilee just fed five thousand people with nothing but a kid’s lunch, you’d debunk me by asking which five thousand people they were.

Christ’s life and miracles meet that burden of proof!

As a scholar of the New Testament, however, I argue that this story’s original audiences would not have been put off by the supposed “strangeness” of the virgin birth story. The story would have felt much more familiar to listeners at that time, when the ancient Mediterranean was full of tales of legendary men born of gods . and when early Christians were paying close attention to the Hebrew Bible’s prophecies.

Now the majority of early Christians outside of Judea and throughout the Roman empire did not know the Old Testament in the original Hebrew, but rather a Greek translation known as the Septuagint. When the Gospel of Matthew quotes Isaiah 7:14, it uses the Septuagint, which includes the term .parthenos,. commonly understood as .virgin.” This term differs from the Hebrew Old Testament, which uses the word .almah,. properly translated as “young woman.” The slight difference in translation between the Hebrew and the Greek may not mean much, but for early Christians who knew Greek, it provided prophetic proof for Jesus. birth from the Virgin Mary.

What he’s saying, is that Isaiah’s correct prophecy is “a young woman will have a son”. That’s not a risky prediction, now is it? Is an old woman going to have a child? A man? This attempt to discredit Isaiah cannot explain why Isaiah would even bother to write down such an asinine sentence.

Hmm… [GQ checks] Isaiah 7:14: “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.”

Additional to that… Immanuel means ‘God with us’. How does that name make sense, in the context of a woman having a son, without some divine Daddy parentage?

Was the belief in the virgin birth based on a mistranslation? Not necessarily. Such terms were sometimes synonymous in Greek and Jewish thought. And the same Greek word, .parthenos,. is also found in Luke’s version of the story. Luke does not cite the prophecy in Isaiah 7:14. Instead, this version of the Nativity story describes the angel Gabriel announcing to Mary that she will give birth even though she is a virgin. Like in Matthew’s version of the story, Mary is told that her baby will be the “son of God..

One point for honesty, that Rodolfo refuted his own suggestion.

Claiming that someone was divinely born was not a new concept during the first century, when Jesus was born. Many Greco-Roman heroes had divine birth stories. Take three famous figures: Perseus, Ion and Alexander the Great.

One of the oldest Greek legends affirms that Perseus, an ancient ancestor of the Greek people, was born of a virgin mother named Dana?. The story begins with Dana? imprisoned by her father, the king of Argos, who feared her because it was prophesied that his grandson would kill him. According to the legend, the Greek god Zeus transformed himself into golden rain and impregnated her.

When Dana? gave birth to Perseus, they escaped and eventually landed on an island where he grew up. He eventually became a famous hero who killed the snake-haired Medusa, and his great-grandson was Hercules, known for his strength and uncontrollable anger.

The playwright Euripides, who lived in the fifth century B.C., describes the story of Ion, whose father was the Greek god Apollo. Apollo raped Creusa, Ion’s mother, who abandoned him at birth. Ion grew up unaware of his divine father, but eventually reconciled with his Athenian mother and became known as the founder of various Greek cities in modern-day Turkey.

Lastly, legends held that Zeus was the father of Alexander the Great, the Macedonian ruler who conquered his vast empire before age 33. Alexander was supposedly conceived the night before his mother consummated her marriage with the king of Macedon, when Zeus impregnated her with a lightning bolt from heaven. Philip, the king of Macedon, raised Alexander as his son, but suspected that there was something different about his conception.

Overall, divine conception stories were familiar in the ancient Mediterranean world.

The problem with all that is that those were legends. Fables. They were morality tales and accepted as such.

We Christians claim that Jesus of Nazareth, a man known to physically exist, had God as a father… also, that Christ demonstrated Godlike abilities on numerous public occasions. There’s the difference. Perseus never walked into a temple and healed the cripples.

Alexander the Great existed but didn’t do miracles. He was simply an amazing general… and I’m not aware of his ever claiming divinity.

[Ideas about a virgin birth] became even more important during the second century, when some Christians were debating Jesus. origins: Was he simply born a human being but became the Son of God after being baptized? Was he a semi-divine being, not really human? Or was he both fully divine and fully human?

Why did these debates begin in the second century instead of the first? Because in the first century, THE EYEWITNESSES WERE STILL ALIVE. Satan couldn’t discredit Christ’s existence while everybody from the Apostles to Christ’s human cousins were still alive with firsthand knowledge.

The last idea, symbolized by the virgin birth, was most accepted . and is now standard Christian belief. But the relative silence about it in the first few decades of Christianity does not necessarily suggest that early Christians did not believe it. Instead, as biblical scholar Raymond Brown also noted, the virgin birth was likely not a major concern for first-century Christians. They affirmed that Jesus was the divine Son of God who became a human being, without trying to explain exactly how this happened.

A quick Wikipedia quote will unmask Raymond Brown.

h ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_E._Brown


In 1943, reversing the approach that had existed since Pope Leo XIII’s encyclical Providentissimus Deus fifty years earlier, Pope Pius XII’s encyclical Divino afflante Spiritu expressed approval of historical-critical methods. For Brown, this was a “Magna Carta for biblical progress.” In 1965, at the Second Vatican Council, the Church moved further in this direction, adopting the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation Dei verbum, instead of the conservative schema “On the Sources of Revelation” that originally had been submitted. While it stated that Scripture teaches “solidly, faithfully and without error that truth which God wanted put into sacred writings for the sake of salvation,” Brown points out the ambiguity of this statement, which opened the way for a new interpretation of inerrancy by shifting from a literal interpretation of the text towards a focus on “the extent to which it conforms to the salvific purpose of God.” He saw this as the Church “turning the corner” on inerrancy: “the Roman Catholic Church does not change her official stance in a blunt way. Past statements are not rejected but are requoted with praise and then reinterpreted at the same time. … What was really going on was an attempt gracefully to retain what was salvageable from the past and to move in a new direction at the same time.”

In a detailed 1965 article in the journal Theological Studies examining whether Jesus was ever called “God” in the New Testament, Brown concluded that “Even the fourth Gospel never portrays Jesus as saying specifically that he is God” and “there is no reason to think that Jesus was called God in the earliest layers of New Testament tradition.”

Brown gonna be sadfaced at Judgment Day. He died in ’98 as an unrepentant blasphemer against Christ. Today, we see his work be cited by Current Year atheists attempting to discredit what they themselves claim to be experts in, via arguments that would not impress a child.

Atheism always begins at “there is no God” and ends at “we must kill Him again”.

End segue

Meanwhile, humanity being condemned to a state of sin, how Jesus managed to not be affected by that universal state IS an important question. Enough so that He had two different genealogies recorded. “The Bible rarely mentioned the virgin birth”, oh come on. Word count has nothing to do with doctrinal importance.

Overall, divine conception stories were familiar in the ancient Mediterranean world. By the second century A.D., Justin Martyr, a Christian theologian who defended Christianity, recognized this point: that virgin birth would not have been considered as “extraordinary” in societies familiar with Greco-Roman deities. In fact, in an address to the Roman emperor Antoninus Pius and philosophers, Justin argued that they should tolerate Christian belief in the virgin birth just as they did belief in the stories of Perseus.

As in, as a fairy tale for adults that nobody should take literally.

The idea of the divine participating in the conception of a child destined for greatness wouldn’t have seemed so unusual to an ancient audience. Even more, early Christians. interpretation of the prophecy in Isaiah 7:14 from the Septuagint supported their belief that Jesus. origin was not only divine, but foretold in their prophetic scriptures.

Aaand, we walk back that one awarded point for honesty, because believers made no such claims of greatness until after Christ was dead. He lived quietly as a carpenter; when He went traveling, He refused all offers of worldly success; and after His execution, His followers abandoned Him. Peter didn’t even wait that long.

That’s not the story of a Perseus or Alexander the Great.

We Christians do not follow cleverly invented stories and refurbished pagan mythologies. Did Alexander’s mother claim that Zeus beat Hubby into her ass by an hour? Who cares, because no witnesses. No documentation. No prophecies, signs or nuthin’.

The facts of Christ’s birth was documented not just by his immediate family, but by the neighbors, the clergy, the Three Wise Men, and by extension, the local government, who believed the claims of Christ’s divinity well enough to order a massacre of all infants in hopes that He’d be one of them. That isn’t the sort of stuff a wise guy can invent out of nothing.

That’s why the “are you suuure this happened literally, as told?” doubters only appeared in the second century. Those meddlesome eyewitnesses!

When Christ was born, He broke the curse & chain of sin that had enslaved humanity ever since the Fall. This Rodolfo “expert” in the Bible refuses to admit the importance of that. But we who know the truth of the Bible, we celebrate God’s birthday because… HE HAS ONE.

Happy Birthday, Christ Our Savior and Son Of God!

Police seize on COVID-19 tech to expand global surveillance

h ttps://www.yahoo.com/news/police-seize-covid-19-tech-054628161.html

By Garance Burke, Josef Federman, Huizhong Wu, Krutika Pathi and Rod McGuirk, 19 December 2022

JERUSALEM (AP) . Majd Ramlawi was serving coffee in Jerusalem’s Old City when a chilling text message appeared on his phone.

.You have been spotted as having participated in acts of violence in the Al-Aqsa Mosque,. it read in Arabic. .We will hold you accountable..

Ramlawi, then 19, was among hundreds of people who civil rights attorneys estimate got the text last year at the height of one of the most turbulent recent periods in the Holy Land. Many, including Ramlawi, say they only lived or worked in the neighborhood, and had nothing to do with the unrest. What he didn’t know was that the feared internal security agency, the Shin Bet, was using mass surveillance technology mobilized for coronavirus contact tracing against Israeli residents and citizens for purposes entirely unrelated to COVID-19.

In the pandemic’s bewildering early days, millions worldwide believed government officials who said they needed confidential data for new tech tools that could help stop coronavirus. spread. In return, governments got a firehose of individuals. private health details, photographs that captured their facial measurements and their home addresses.

I TOLD YOU SO! I told you that Covid was never about a disease.

I told you that lockdowns are not a medical procedure. They are a prison procedure.

I told you that “two weeks to destroy civilization before Covid gets the chance” was not about a disease. It was about population control.

I told you that government banning people from trying cheap medical treatments in favor of an untested DNA-mutating gene slime that the government paid for in advance, to itself, was not just gross malpractice and a complete betrayal of the public trust, it needs a Nuremberg Trial for medical crimes against humanity.

AND, I told you that the reason the government was developing the ability to track who a person associates with in realtime, is because that’s what Springtime For Hitler looks like. You hypocritical “anti-fascists”.

I told you and you didn’t believe me because I WAS NOT GOVERNMENT-APPROVED TO DISAGREE WITH THE GOVERNMENT. You lackwitted, Godforsaking FOOLS! You heard me say that face diapers were useless, and you called me evil because the government said face diapers were mostly useless but not always and therefore should be worn 24-7 by every human being on the planet under penalty of incarceration without due process. Or starvation.

But it was Cuomo who killed Grandma. You show me the Black Death one more time, I’ll show you a government bureaucrat. Who’s killed more people NOW, huh?

Now, from Beijing to Jerusalem to Hyderabad, India, and Perth, Australia, The Associated Press has found that authorities used these technologies and data to halt travel for activists and ordinary people, harass marginalized communities and link people’s health information to other surveillance and law enforcement tools. In some cases, data was shared with spy agencies.

The issue has taken on fresh urgency almost three years into the pandemic as China’s ultra-strict zero-COVID policies recently ignited the sharpest and largest public rebuke of the country’s authoritarian leadership since the pro-democracy protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989.

For more than a year, AP journalists interviewed sources and pored over thousands of documents to trace how technologies marketed to “flatten the curve” were put to other uses. Just as the balance between privacy and national security shifted after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, COVID-19 has given officials justification to embed tracking tools in society that have lasted long after lockdowns.

I don’t like animated images because they can’t archive well and are distracting, but Stephen Colbert making rude gestures in front of a giant “I Told You So” sign is simply perfect here.

The AP found:

–Israel.s Shin Bet security agency repurposed phone surveillance technology it had previously used to monitor militants inside Palestinian territories to monitor people for COVID-19 contact tracing. Then, in 2021, the agency quietly began using the same technology to send threatening messages to Arab citizens and residents of Israel whom the agency suspected of participating in violent clashes with police. Some of the recipients, however, simply lived or worked in the area, or were mere passers-by.

“It was okay when we were doing it.”

–In China, the last major country in the world to enforce strict COVID-19 lockdowns, citizens have had to install cell-phone apps to move about freely in most cities. Drawing from telecommunications data and PCR test results, the apps produce individual QR codes that change from green to yellow or red, depending on a person’s health status. Now, as pandemic restrictions lessen, there is evidence that the health codes have been used to stifle dissent. Citizens who wanted to lodge complaints against the government suddenly found their codes turning red even though they hadn’t tested positive for COVID-19 or been near infected individuals.

Now would be a good time for you Democrats to outlaw government surveillance of society other than individuals for which a judge issued a warrant. Oh, but the problem here isn’t that the government has unlimited power! The problem is the government using unlimited power against you specifically.

–As early as May 2020 in India, the police chief of Telangana state tweeted about his department rolling out artificial intelligence-based software using CCTV to zero-in on people not wearing masks. S Q Masood, a social activist, was among the people stopped seemingly at random by police in a predominantly Muslim area of Hyderabad last year. Masood said officers told him to remove his mask so they could photograph him with a tablet. He’s now suing police to find out why. Although law enforcement denies using facial recognition in Masood’s case, the lawsuit is continuing and experts said it may set precedent for future policing activities.

.In Australia, people used apps to tap their phones against QR codes at restaurants, performance venues and other public spaces to record their presence so they could be contacted in case a COVID-19 outbreak was linked to a place they visited. But in multiple cases Australian law enforcement co-opted the state-level QR check-in data as a sort of electronic dragnet to investigate crimes. The practice came despite government assurances that the information would be used only to promote public health.

“I am shocked! Shocked, I say!”

–Finally, in the U.S., the federal government used the pandemic as an opportunity to build out its surveillance toolkit. It signed two contracts in 2020 worth $24.9 million with the data-mining and surveillance company Palantir Technologies Inc. to support the Department of Health and Human Services. pandemic response. Documents obtained by the immigrant rights group Just Futures Law under the Freedom of Information Act and shared with the AP show that federal officials considered integrating “identifiable patient data,. such as mental health, substance use and behavioral health information from group homes, shelters, jails, detox facilities and schools. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control does not use any of that individual-level information in the platform CDC now manages, said Kevin Griffis, a department spokesman.

And if you believe THAT, you’re probably still sucking on a face diaper, sitting in a government-owned cubicle, on your fifth booster shot, wondering why you still feel sick.

For Christmas 2022, here is YOUR FRICKING CLUE!

.What COVID did was accelerate state use of these tools and that data and normalize it, so it fit a narrative about there being a public benefit,. said John Scott-Railton, a senior researcher at the Toronto-based internet watchdog Citizen Lab. .Now the question is, are we going to be capable of having a reckoning around the use of this data, or is this the new normal?.

It’s YOUR New Normal, you useful idiots. Now up against the wall with you!

Sing hallelujah to the Lord
Say, hey you useful idiots!
You thought to track us down
You tried to kick us out
You fell into the pit you dug

Jesus is risen from the dead
NPCs hope that they will not
Christ will give them second life
So He can kill them again
Oblivion is not the final stop

Postscript, ye Socialists and Normies, Climate Change is a lie whose purpose is to transfer wealth from the weak to the powerful, and to criminalize the very existence of human life.

Gretchen Whitmer Skittles Man!

The saga of the Gretchen Whitmer Kidnapping continues, as the latest hotness in gender pronouns is now juror/defendant! Let’s watch Skittles Man taint the jury pool… because thwarting him would be sexist!

Judge concerned that juror is flirting with defendant in Whitmer kidnap trial

h ttps://www.yahoo.com/news/judge-concerned-juror-flirting-defendant-230817449.html

By Tresa Baldas for Detroit Free Press, 12 October 2022

A juror in the third Gretchen Whitmer kidnap trial is under scrutiny over concerns she is flirting with one of the defendants, smiling at him from the jury box and looking at him frequently . so frequently that the judge said he’s going to keep an eye on her.

Like cockroaches, SJWs can’t move backwards. And the first one in this failed false-flag line crawled into a very deep hole.

But what’s this about a juror flirting with the accused terrorist?

“I see her looking directly at your client, and a number of times I’ve seen smiles coming out of her face. It’s enough that it’s drawing my attention,” Jackson County Circuit Judge Thomas Wilson told the defendant’s lawyer, adding “I’m going to be paying close attention. … I don’t know if I’m going to kick her off or not.”

The defendant at issue is 22-year-old Paul Bellar of Milford, the youngest defendant charged in the sensational domestic terrorism case that is now playing out in state court after four defendants were previously convicted, and two others acquitted in federal court.

A prosecutor raised the issue during a trial break on Wednesday, telling the judge that not only is the juror flirting with Bellar, but it appears he may be flirting back. They smile and nod at each other, the prosecutor said, adding that Bellar at one point clenched both his fists and shook them in an affirmative way while the juror was looking at him.

“We’re very concerned about this juror,” the prosecutor said.

Bellar’s attorney conceded that he, too, had seen the two exchange glances. But he had an explanation for why Bellar was seen shaking his fists.

He was holding Skittles candy in his hand, his lawyer said.

What the… HEARTISTE?! Is that you?


Be A Skittles Man

h ttps://theredarchive.com/blog/Heartiste/be-a-skittles-man.11582

By Chateau Heartiste, 19 May 2009

Now here’s a blast from the Manosphere’s pickup artist past for my newer readers.

Reader Fabian linked to a funny entry on the .Don’tDate Him Girl. blog:

“He had several “lady friends” who stayed the night at his house and he claimed they were “Just friends.” He frequently forgot important details about me, such as the fact that I had a sister, my birthday and what sorts of hobbies I had. He blew me off constantly, would return calls a week later with the excuse of .I was busy.. I often spoiled him with gifts, rides and sex only to receive a bag of Skittles in return. (I don’t even like skittles!) That was the only gift I ever received from him! I met a new friend and we were bonding over “worst ex-boyfriend stories. and suddenly we realized .boy, a lot of these sound the same. Was his name ____?. IT WAS THE SAME GUY!!!”

In an unintentional juxtaposition for the ages, reader joel left a comment in my Pimp Slap post about a wedding he attended:

“I just attended a wedding the bill for which, paid mostly by the parents of the bride but with substantial input from the groom’s parents, would easily pay for the private education of several children. It could have paid for a modest but nice house in a good neighborhood in many parts of the country. Hint: The flowers cost about $15,000.”

It is amazing what the matriarchy does. The Darwinian purpose of this, I believe, is to keep the husbands working their asses off, and keep them broke, so they can’t go out and buy a younger woman for their next wife or keep a concubine.

Really. There is no other logical explanation for this excess.

Two men, two vastly different experiences with women. One man gets all the pussy he wants for the bargain basement price of a bag of Skittles, while the other man marries a woman in a wedding ceremony featuring flowers that cost $15,000.

How much you want to bet the first guy’s rotation of girlfriends is hotter than the second guy’s $15,000 flower wife? How much you want to bet the first guy gets all the anal sex and blowjobs he desires while the second guy will be begging for his once-a-month sex as soon as the vows are exchanged? If one of these guys is a herb, who is it more likely to be?

FACT: Odds are good you will enjoy a bounty of pussy and love if you act like Skittles guy. FACT: Odds are good you will spend the rest of your life begging for tepid sex from the same old boring pussy if you act like $15,000 wedding flower guy.

Be a Skittles man. Don’t be a $15,000 wedding flower man.

That was an early and elementary Red Pill lesson in female behavior for a lot of men. If a girl is interested in you, she isn’t going to toss you over a diamond ring and dinners out.

End segue

“The shaking of the fist is because of Skittles …. ’cause guess what? It’s his birthday today,” defense attorney Andrew Kirkpatrick said, adding that his client is behaving himself.

Every day’s your birthday when you can charm a juror sitting in ‘judgment’ of whether you’ve been a naughty, naughty boy!

“I have noticed her kind of looking. He knows. But he’s not winking at her. He’s not doing anything to encourage her,” Kirkpatrick said. “I don’t think that’s a basis to get rid of this juror. … Maybe she likes him . maybe she doesn’t. There’s no way of telling what’s in the juror’s mind.”

Kirkpatrick isn’t just Bellar’s defense attorney. He’s Bellar’s WINGMAN! Best… lawyer… EVER!

Defense lawyers for the other two defendants also objected to tossing the juror over the flirting allegations, with one calling the claims sexist.

“Simply because a young woman is looking over here . (concluding) it must be some flirtation involvement is just sexist,” said defense lawyer Kareem Johnson, who is representing Pete Musico. “People have laughed during this trial. People have smiled during this trial. . I completely object to the court even addressing the juror. She’s supposed to look over here.”

Defense attorney Leonard Ballard, who is representing Joe Morrison, also argued against the judge interviewing the juror, calling such an interrogation “egregious.”

“Where’s the basis for saying she’s gonna lie? Because she’s a woman? Because she’s young?” Ballard said.

Yes. Exactly that. Young female flesh should never be put in authority over a naughty-boy terrorist, accused or otherwise. But yes, that would be SEXIST and could endanger the matriarchy’s representation in the jury box, now couldn’t it?

Did the judge risk a hung jury to avoid hurting a woman’s feelings?

Accused of flirting, juror dismissed from Whitmer kidnapping plot trial

h ttps://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/accused-flirting-juror-dismissed-whitmer-kidnapping-plot-trial-rcna52415

By AP, 15 October 2022

JACKSON, Mich. . A judge has dismissed a young woman from the jury hearing the trial of three men in connection with a 2020 plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer after attorneys accused her of flirting with one of the defendants.

Judge Thomas Wilson announced Friday that the woman has been removed from the jury, two days after attorneys raised concerns the juror was having too much non-verbal communication with defendant Paul Bellar, the Jackson Citizen Patriot reported.

.It didn’t just happen on one day . it happened over multiple days,. Wilson said of the juror’s behavior. .I decided it’s safer to err on the side of caution..

Wilson said he has never seen such behavior in nearly 35 years of practicing law. The juror took the decision well, he said.

It was the correct decision, although I am left vaguely disappointed. This could have been an EPIC teaching moment.

And how did the trial end?

Paul Bellar, Joe Morrison, and Pete Musico get prison time for assisting in plot to kidnap Gov. Whitmer

h ttps://www.fox5dc.com/news/3-men-tied-to-leader-of-whitmer-kidnap-plot-face-sentencing

By Joey Cappelletti and Ed White, 15 December 2022

LANSING, Mich. (AP) – One of three men who forged an early alliance with the leader of a plot to kidnap Michigan’s governor was sentenced Thursday to seven years in prison for assisting him before the FBI disbanded the scheme in 2020.

Bellar’s sentencing came shortly after Pete Musico and Musico’s son-in-law Joe Morrison were given 12-year and 10-year prison sentences, respectively. They were convicted in October of providing material support for a terrorist act, which carries a maximum term of 20 years.

Bellar, Morrison and Muscio in that order. I think it’s a joke that they were even tried, but looking at their mugshots, perhaps it was their beards that got them suspected of terrorist activities? Mohammed says hey.

Regardless, well played, Skittles Man. The only reason it didn’t work out for you is there was still a male authority figure in the room who was willing to tell a woman No. For your appeal, try to claim you were discriminated against because your beard resembled a 9/11 hijacker.

Subscription-Based National Defense?

STUPID AUTOCAD PROGRAM! Why must I purchase a new license and download another gigabyte of bloat just so you’ll do today what you did yesterday, except with my printer drivers deleted and the menus twisted around? And it’s not just ‘software as a service’ these days, it’s everything. I saw headlines that BMW tried “car seat heaters as a service”… a device that worked without a subscription just the week before, and which you wouldn’t think could be improved by adding the need for activation from a remote network server.

The usury in modern ‘Murica is off the charts.

US Army ponders “radio as a service” to keep communications up to date

h ttps://www.yahoo.com/news/us-army-ponders-radio-keep-164241946.html

NASHVILLE, Tenn. . The U.S. Army may take a new tack to the procurement of radios, launching an “as a service” pilot that officials say can drive down costs and increase communications adaptability.

The as-a-service effort would kick off in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023, according to Undersecretary Gabe Camarillo, who spoke last week at the Army’s Technical Exchange Meeting 9 in Nashville, Tennessee. Under the model, the service contracts with a vendor who provides .a minimal number of radios for training,. centrally stores or leases radios for operations and would “upgrade software as required,. he said.

You know what the problem is with American national defense? Not enough globalist middlemen gatekeeping our national security efforts. /sarc


h ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gabe_Camarillo

Gabriel Omar Camarillo is an American attorney who has served as the 35th under secretary of the Army in the Biden administration since February 8, 2022. He previously served as Assistant Secretary of the Air Force (Manpower & Reserve Affairs) from 2015 to 2017 during the Obama administration.

He was never even military?! Not even a puke of a Navy JAG?

After graduating from law school, he was a litigation associate at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld from 2002 to 2005. He was an associate at the Sutton Law Firm in San Francisco from 2004 to 2009 and at the Kaufman Legal Group in Los Angeles from 2009 to 2010. Camarillo joined the United States Army as a civilian employee in 2010…

From December 15, 2015, to January 22, 2017, he served as assistant secretary of the Air Force (manpower & reserve affairs).

Heehee, what happened to all those Obama drones in January 2017?

Camarillo then joined McKinsey & Company as a senior advisor. In 2017, he joined the Science Applications International Corporation.

h ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McKinsey_%26_Company

McKinsey & Company is a global management consulting firm founded in 1926 by University of Chicago professor James O. McKinsey, that offers professional services to corporations, governments, and other organizations. McKinsey is the oldest and largest of the “Big Three” management consultancies (MBB), the world’s three largest strategy consulting firms by revenue. The firm mainly focuses on the finances and operations of their clients.

TL;DR Camarillo is a Jesuit-trained litigation lawyer who is completely ignorant about how a military functions… specifically, the military he’s now in charge of… and wintered through the Trump Interregnum as a management consultant for the scum of the earth. That’s exactly the sort of middle-management fool who would think that national defense could only be improved by rent-seeking parasitism.

And when I say ‘scum of the earth’…

The firm has been associated with a number of notable scandals including the collapse of Enron in 2001, 2007.2008 financial crisis, and facilitating state capture in South Africa. It has also drawn controversy for involvement with Purdue Pharma, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and authoritarian regimes. In February 2021, McKinsey paid $600 million to settle investigations into its role in promoting sales of OxyContin and fueling the greater opioid epidemic.

…I mean that ‘Phase Two Of Military Preparedness For the 21st Century’ will be forcibly addicting the enlisted to painkillers. Science applications, baby!

End segue

The approach differs from the service’s traditional approach of buying and maintaining radios, which can be hamstrung by hardware limitations. Instead, it’s more similar to the subscription model offered by some makers of consumer products and mirrors as-a-service deals in which companies furnish goods or services on a rolling basis and keeps them operating and up to date. The thinking initially encompassed software and information technology, but has since expanded to a wider range of wares.

“Does it work when I push the button?”

“No, it works when you pay the rent.”

The idea is preceded by a “need to experiment with different buying models, especially for our capabilities in which technology trends do not support the serial process of defining a requirement, entering a development phase and then pursuing a continuous fielding process of that exact same version of a capability over a long period of time,. Camarillo said.

The idea is preceded by Camarillo enjoying six years of sinecure with Goldfinger & Simps.

The Army has some 350,000 radios . a stockpile too massive to quickly and cost-effectively modernize, given looming security deadlines and competition with China and Russia.

Those are bullshit reasons. Granted that Army procurement is troublesome at the best of times, it will NOT be improved by ADDING COMPLEXITY. Most of those radios can be ‘updated’ just by grabbing off-the-shelf tech then soldering a crypto chip into it.

Science fiction regularly assumes that ‘military tech’ is a synonym for cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology. That’s why it’s categorized as fiction. In real life, the military’s idea of advanced technology is whether it still works after you leave it in a bucket of muddy ice water for a week then use it for a backstop at the firing range. Bonus if it can be fixed with a hammer, superglue and/or dropping it on a hard surface.

The two technologically savvy world powers employ sophisticated signals intelligence and electronic warfare capabilities, which can put in harm’s way U.S. soldiers relying on outdated lines of communication. The Russia-Ukraine war has proven the need for more-insulated networks as well as the dangers posed by indiscriminate cell phone use to relay battlefield information, defense officials said earlier this year.

More bullshit. From the American perspective, the Russia-Ukraine war has proven only that the USA needs the Monroe Doctrine more than ever.

Russia isn’t winning 404 with super-advanced satellite telecommunications and Neato Rockets. It’s winning with 1. artillery, 2. ethnic/cultural solidarity with the “conquered” regions and 3. not being infested with Jews.

Network modernization is among the Army’s top priorities, and intimately ties into the Pentagon’s push for a wholly connected miltary, known as Joint All-Domain Command and Control.

One hopes that their modernization will include spell-check.

While the as-a-service model could jeopardize the Army’s ability to surge radios in the event of a large-scale fight, the potential cost savings, flexibility and software upgrades are .a really compelling reason. to experiment with it, Camarillo said.

[Ass-kissing] Army Lt. Gen. John Morrison, deputy chief of staff, G-6, backed what the undersecretary said at the conference, warning that .whatever we build today, 20 years from now, it better not be in the force because it will be so antiquated. We won’t be able to use it.. An as-a-service arrangement could prove less stagnant.

Why wait twenty years for obsolescence? With radio-as-a-service subscription, your equipment will be obsolete the day after you miss a payment. Just ask Autodesk how much mercy they have for customers who won’t regularly pay for updates on a per user, per device basis.

.It is ironic to me that we would actually come up with any IT program where we think we’re going to be fielding the same capability for decades,. Morrison said.

It’s ironic to me that he would create an IT program in order to justify improving the IT program.

The Army is seeking input from industry about the as-a-service pilot as well as what, exactly, companies can provide to meet requirements for a low-cost, single-channel, secure-but-unclassified radio.

The feedback, provided via requests for information published earlier this month, will shape how the Army proceeds.

Army: “We are seeking input on the idea of military-as-a-service.”

GunnerQ: “Okay! It’s total bullsh…”

Army: “…from the vendors who stand to reap incredible profits from the new business model.”

The Army this spring selected two companies, L3Harris Technologies and Thales Defense and Security, to furnish voice and data radios as part of its combat net radio modernization program. The arrangement is worth as much as $6.1 billion.

Thales’ globalist parent company got hacked and ransomware’d last month. I won’t snark about their communications being unreliable, but I will snark that making equipment that needs regular updates will make them vulnerable to such attacks.

In fact, obsolescence and noncompatibility are two of the best defenses against malware attacks. Uniform standards and mandatory integration are what gave Microsoft Outlook the nickname of ‘Virus Transfer Protocol’ among… former drinking buddies of my past’s vague acquaintance. Who were probably just talking smack.

By contrast, nobody makes malware for OS2/warp.

More than 1,100 radios, including those to be used for quality checks and preliminary testing, had been ordered as of April, according to the Program Executive Office for Command, Control and Communications-Tactical. L3Harris secured $20.6 million of the initial order. Thales got $18.2 million.

The program, the Army said, supports Pentagon and National Security Agency cryptographic goals as well as the service’s unified network strategy.

I want to be happy that the military that will try to kill me in a few years, is being this badly mismanaged. The problem is that a globalist priority is disarming the nations of the world in favor of what they call the ‘global security state’. The idea is that when they complete the world government, there will be no need for defense from foreign powers because there will be no foreign powers. Thus, the future government’s “defense” will be security against “criminals and terrorists”.

Or as Mussolini put it, “Everything Within the State, Nothing Against the State, Nothing Outside the State.” You won’t need an army once there’s nothing outside the State anymore.

Christian Process Versus Product

The hallmark of a bureaucrat is valuing the process over the product. So long as the payroll taxes get filed on time, it doesn’t really matter that the factory is producing dingbats when it should be making wingnuts.

Or, that the Church closed for Chinkypox and reopened only when concerts were permitted.

Why I don’t agree with making church, Bible relevant

h ttps://www.christianpost.com/voices/why-i-dont-agree-with-making-church-bible-relevant.html

By Wes Lindsey, 20 November 2022

Good. We begin with agreement that Church and Bible ARE irrelevant to current society and may proceed to debate if we should try to make them relevant. I will argue ‘yes’ and this established leader of mainstream Churchianity will argue ‘no’. (Lindsey is the Senior Director of Marketing for Medi-Share/Christian Care Ministry… a bureaucrat.)

There are few things in life that I wish for more than a bright future for my children. Yes, I want them to be successful in whatever career or ministry God calls them to. Of course, I want them to experience the joy that comes from raising a family of their own. Sure, I would even love to leave them a nice inheritance, have their college aspirations fully funded, and keep them from experiencing many of the learning pains I had as a young adult.

His argument: “You can have a perfectly fine career, family and retirement without God. But not without additional Marxist indoctrination.”

My argument: I would rather have God. For me, it’s an easy choice because the latter two have been denied me. But I do have a career. It’s my third career, too, me having had to repeatedly reboot my adult life… maybe fifth career, depending on how you count… and y’know, having to start over again and again like my parents never had to, makes it okay if obeying God costs me my current career.

Some of us are just born lucky like that. /sarc But even if you aren’t and are staring at the possibility that following God may cost you everything… for several of my readers, it already did during the Plandemic… you have God’s own promise that He’ll make it up to you.

And not just by protecting you from dying of Suddenly.

However, in the words of 3 John 1:4, I will have no greater joy than to know my children have made their own decision to walk in truth with a love for their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

1 John 3:14: “We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death.”

It’s a bad sign when a Christian pundit claims God is Love is God. A possibility emerges from the fog, explaining why he’s dismissive of Church tradition and moral demands: if the process feels good then the product can’t be bad!

I would argue here that meeting God’s moral demands are mandatory and often requires not-nice feelings towards ourselves and others, but… do I really have to? Does anybody expect Christianity to be FUN?

It’s also a bad sign when a Christian pundit cannot distinguish between his beliefs and his family. It is often a sign of… of…

Admittedly, being a father of four girls…

May God have mercy on this poor fool because I cannot. Not when he’s spreading false dogma and putting his 6yo girl’s name on the Internet. It’s not safe to discuss your little kids on social media in modern America. This man isn’t just disobeying God, his humblebragging is opening doors for child molesters.

Why does that even have to be said? There was a recent mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Colorado. That event billed itself as an ALL-AGES event. For a moment, I had hoped that the perp actually was a MAGA type, protecting his family in extremis. But instead, it was a pedophile-friendly event, in public and government-protected. THAT is how unsafe it is to discuss your little girls on the Internet.

(Amusingly, the initial claim the perp was a MAGA type prevented the media from covering up the fact that the perp was not only “non-binary” xirself, it was actually xir’s second public attempt at mass murder. The first one was, inexplicably, not prosecuted despite the bomb squad evacuating the neighborhood and his grandparents making media statements that he intended to kill them.)

[Being a father of four girls] is more than a little intimidating in a society that seems increasingly less focused on instilling the truths of God’s Word and more focused on propagating fake agendas and distortions of reality. My wife and I…

“My wife and I”. That’s another Cuckservative tell. Yes, please, let’s discuss distortions of reality such as Biblical gender roles.

…have frequently discussed how to find a balance in keeping their precious minds from the chaos of this present world, while also ensuring they are armed with information and tools to equip them for the realities of young adulthood.

It’s not chaos. It’s Satan. The headlines are happening for reasons, as in cause & effect from deliberate plans such as Agenda 2030. Randomness would be a great improvement.

You want to protect your daughter? Keep her off social media, train her to avoid predators then marry her off young so the devil has no chance at defiling her. No “finding herself” during a missionary position in Bangkok. NO COLLEGE.

We do not claim to have all the answers, and frankly we’ve made a lot of mistakes as parents over the past 17 years. I’m sure we will make many more.

I showed up for a fight but instead, I ask this author… with full honesty and sincerity… “d00d, why u keep hitting yourself?”

But, I will never apologize for every time we’ve taken them to church, prayed together, or opened and discussed the Bible as a family. I will never apologize for teaching them values and the difference between right and wrong. Yes, there is a difference.

I’m curious, which of those were the mistakes he’s talking about? Church attendance? Prayer? Scripture? I can argue the latter; women should study men more than the Bible; but if this glass jaw wants to argue that there’s a difference between right and wrong then maybe I’m out of my league here.

Sorry, Peewees, I’m in the wrong room. I’ll leave you be until you’re old enough to understand the difference between values and morals. Not all of you will make it that far in Christ’s Kingdom, sad to say.

And, no matter what life throws at them, dad and mom will always have open arms to love and point them toward the cross.

“I just had an abortion.”

“Jeebus wuvs you! Wuv conquers all! Wuv brings us from death to life, like Scripture says!”

“But I don’t want my baby back.”

Over the past decade I’ve heard a lot about “making church relevant” for the younger generation. While I certainly agree that we should provide programs and resources that appeal to children, teens, and young adults alike, I do not agree, on principle, that the Bible needs to be changed to be “relevant.”

FINALLY! The debate that I thought we were going to have. Notice the strawman being set up here.

1. Some people think the church should be relevant.

2. We should make the church interesting to children, but…

3. The Bible doesn’t need to be changed.

Church is not Bible. Church relevance is a social problem whereas Biblical relevance is a personal problem.

Church should become relevant because its purpose is to organize and assist believers. Its irrelevance to masculine men and feminine women, is a choice made by its clergy. Not us outsiders.

The Bible should be made relevant, too, as in application. Don’t just memorize it; do what it says, like the civil rights violation of women submitting to men.

In fact, there is nothing more relevant than God’s Word.

No other writing has stood the test of time, transcending different centuries and cultures, and yet, when opened and read today, is still able to speak to each of us in a very relevant way. The Bible is both a historical book and a living book. We learn Bible history while the living Word guides us through life.

It’s a fine book, yes, but did Cucky ever read Genesis Chapter Three… and accept the meaning & implications of Original Sin?

Each year for the past seven years at least one of our daughters has participated in a Bible verse memorization and competitive quizzing program. It is a half-year-long season covering a few hundred pre-selected verses that are memorized verbatim.

Each “quizzer” typically invests up to an hour per day on memorization and review. That might seem like a large investment but in reality, they’ve really just replaced excessive “screen time.” It’s amazing how their motivation for Bible Quizzing has built on its own over time. We initially introduced them to the program but I must say, never have we pleaded, bribed, or required participation.

A few years ago, one of our daughters dropped out for a season. She felt she wanted to focus on school, which we supported wholeheartedly. By the end of the year, she had told her friends and us that she never wanted to miss a season again. She missed the focus, community, and competition. In fact, each of the kids has developed a passion, pushed through fears of public speaking, and found a way to boldly proclaim their faith. Hearing them share their faith with others, defend it with Scripture, and even encourage one another (Yes, they still have daily sibling squabbles!) is a blessing to us.

Memorizing Scripture is good, it’s practically a lost art now, but the point is not to have lots of Scripture memorized. That is bureaucracy. Christianity is doing what Scripture says, not quoting it at length followed by “I make lots of mistakes”.

The end result of all this family Bible studying is… drum roll…

As I think about my 17-year-old graduating this year, my parental radar goes on high alert again. I have to fight back the .what-ifs.. What if she doesn’t remember what we’ve instilled in her? What if.What if.

What if Harvard doesn’t accept her? What if she “finds herself” getting regret-raped in Bangkok? What if she ends up penniless and dependent upon a husband?

In discussing college a few weeks ago, she came to us almost in tears. .I feel like God wants me to go on a mission trip before I go to college. Would you be supportive?.

We needed no time to consider.

What’s the point of memorizing the Bible, when the end result is raising your daughter to be a man? They don’t have trivia quizzes at the Pearly Gates. They have a Savior who asks, “did you repent?”

The most popular wrong answer to that will be “No, because I’m loved. Ask me how smart I am!”

For the parent reading this who is trying to instill godly principles into your children, but feels the pressure of the world closing in, be strong and keep fighting. Your efforts will not return void. For the parent who may have a child who no longer attends church, I pray that you will keep believing. Don’t lose heart. You may not see a way right now, but God is working and He is able to do anything!

Now that we’re done talking about his smart daughters who after a career, will hopefully go on to raise a token Downy Baby about the time of menopause, we can discuss how maybe the reason men doesn’t want to go to church is because it has no place for us. Oh, wait… this author forgot to care about men during his humblebragging.

Church was just a process to him, a way to show how smart and educated his daughters were. Too bad that her smarts are not what gently bounces when she walks and healthy families are not the sum total of Church priorities.

Healthy men being interested in the product, are not going to endure a lifetime in a church box for the chance to become either a ball-busting feminist or a stay-at-home cheerleader for Mommy’s career.

Who needs Church and tradition and morality when your daughters are loved unconditionally and free to live however they want? Just follow the bureaucratic process of pew warming or Bible studying or correct-Mass-attending and that’s all God really cares about. Check the boxes, flip an alm to the poor and show the world how SMART your feminist daughters are!

What Happened When Sheriff Villanueva Conceded Defeat

I sometimes have trouble posting because I’m never sure if the story is over. As the collapse unfolds, one thing just keeps leading to another. Here’s the story of Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s election defeat and its implications.

.The sheriff who went rogue.: Alex Villanueva’s scandal-plagued tenure ends in LA

h ttps://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/nov/16/alex-villanueva-la-county-sheriff-loses-robert-luna

By Sam Levine for Los Angeles Magazine, 16 November 2022

For only the second time in more than a century, Los Angeles residents have voted out an incumbent sheriff, ending the reign of Alex Villanueva, a scandal-plagued official who civil rights leaders say had become a “danger to the people..

And we know who’s meant by “civil rights leaders”.

The downfall of the cowboy hat-wearing sheriff comes at the end of a four-year term marked by a dizzying pace of misconduct, abuse and corruption scandals. As the race heated up in the last year, Villanueva faced increasing national scrutiny for his frequent, at times weekly, lashing out at politicians, community leaders, journalists, whistleblowers, watchdogs and other law enforcement officials who tried exposing problems at the department.

Left unmentioned is that Villanueva refused to mandate the vaxx for his deputies and refused to enforce the criminal medical mandates. Thus began the rift between him and the Cultural Marxists who thought a Spanish-speaking Puerto Rican would be a safe bet for replacing Heritage Americans.

We’ll discuss that boldfaced “other law enforcement officials” in a moment.

.He.ll be remembered as the sheriff who went rogue, who operated as if he was above and outside of the law, who acted with impunity,. said Mark-Anthony Clayton-Johnson, executive director of Dignity and Power Now, a group that advocates for people in LA county jails, which are run by the LA sheriff’s department (LASD).

A registered Democrat who had become a favorite of far-right pundits for his “tough on crime” talk and opposition to criminal justice reform, Villanueva has derided his critics as people who .worship at the altar of woke-ism..

We dissidents are as surprised as the Bolsheviks and Pelosis that Alex V turned out to be a white hat.

Villanueva was a lieutenant when he was elected in 2018 on a platform to clean up an agency that had repeatedly been the subject of investigations. More than a dozen LASD deputies had faced charges five years prior surrounding the beatings of incarcerated people; the top sheriff and his undersheriff were eventually imprisoned following federal obstruction and corruption cases. At trial, the undersheriff admitted he had a tattoo associated with a gang of officers that a judge said was a .neo-Nazi, white supremacist. group.

Villanueva has been accused of engaging in the same kind of cover-ups as his predecessors; while the county’s inspector general has recently identified dozens of current deputies believed to be members of officer “cliques” and gangs, which are known for encouraging brutality, Villanueva has defied subpoenas to testify on the issue and issued legal threats aiming to prevent officials from using the term “deputy gang.” He told the Guardian this year that the gangs were .a problem of perception, not reality., and that he didn’t want to comply with “political subpoenas..

I believe the accusations that Latino gangs are infiltrating the Sheriff’s Department. That’s what Latinos do in their home countries and they sure ain’t assimilating now that they’re here. Who could honestly expect different?

In September, armed sheriff’s deputies raided the home of the county supervisor Sheila Kuehl, who serves on a sheriff’s oversight committee and has been a vocal critic. LASD said it was investigating a county contract and potential bribery, and seized Kuehl’s phone and personal computer, but the LA district attorney’s office said it was not involved in the search and had also investigated the claims last year and found no cause for charges.

I first took notice of Villanueva when he refused to vaxx his men. Then I realized he was playing hardball with this Kuehl incident.


California Attorney General Seizes Control of Los Angeles Sheriff’s Investigation of Local Officials

h ttps://www.truthorfiction.com/alex-villanueva-investigation-attorney-general/

21 September 2022

California Attorney General Rob Bonta has taken control of an investigation originally carried out by Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, which quickly stirred accusations that the sheriff was attempting to intimidate local officials with oversight over his department.

Quite the hypocritical complaint, as you’ll soon see.

Bonta said in a statement on September 20 2022 that the state Department of Justice would assume all responsibility for the probe into the nonprofit group Peace Over Violence.

That investigation led to a search warrant being executed against County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and the group’s head, Patti Giggans, on September 14 2022 by a “public corruption” unit. Giggans is also part of the Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission, which is investigating long-standing allegations that several gangs have been allowed to foment within the Sheriff’s Department.

They constantly accused the Sheriff of gang activity. While I don’t doubt it as mentioned above, the possibility of projection here… specifically, gangs in the Los Angeles Police Department… is also credible.

The department also executed a search warrant against the office of local Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Inspector General Max Huntsman, prompting a legal challenge.

That, in turn, led Villanueva’s department to announce that County Counsel Rod Castro-Silva.s office, which typically represents LASD in legal affairs, had “terminated” that relationship; the department reportedly sought pro bono legal representation at that time.

Sheriff Alex kicked over a hornet’s nest! Finally, a Sheriff fighting back… and in a city that can’t be ignored!

.In recent days, the public unfolding of an unprecedented investigation has raised serious questions for residents of Southern California and beyond,. Bonta said in a statement regarding his office’s assuming responsibility for the “corruption” investigation. .I recognize the deep uncertainty this has engendered and, given the unique circumstances, my team has committed to taking over this investigative process. Make no mistake: We are committed to a thorough, fair, and independent investigation that will help restore confidence for the people of our state. If there is wrongdoing by any party, we will bring it to light..

The Los Angeles Times also reported that Bonta announced his intentions to the department in a letter responding to [Los Angeles Mayor] Villanueva’s demand that the state Department of Justice investigate whether Giggans and Kuehl had been “tipped off” about the raids.

.Your department should cease its investigative activity and refrain from any actions in furtherance of these investigations, including public statements or court filings related to the investigations,. Bonta said in his response, sent to Undersheriff Tim Murakami, while saying he would indeed accede to Villanueva’s request.

A meaningless snub! The bad guys were on the ropes!

As LAist reported in February 2022, Castro-Silva had sent his own letter to Bonta’s office in late 2021 asking him to take over Villanueva’s investigation of Huntsman, which he said was politically motivated and part of an effort on the sheriff’s part to “discourage legitimate oversight” of his department.

.The only way to put an end to the Sheriff’s abuse of power is to have the California Department of Justice supervise these investigations (including any future investigations the Sheriff may announce against oversight officials), determine whether they have merit, and end them if they do not,. Castro-Silva wrote to Bonta.

Either the Sheriff committed a crime by launching raids with the appropriate warrants, or the rot was so thick that the Sheriff’s own counsel was involved.

A spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Department told us, .No response will be provided. AG has taken over the investigation..

The Sheriff didn’t do any of this until Covid happened and he stood up for his men. The Marxists retaliated by pressing him on the deputy gang issue. The Sheriff started asking the questions that should have been asked back in the 90s. Tensions escalated until Villanueva was ranting like Andrew Torba on a bender and Los Angeles City was staging a color revolution.

It popped when Villanueva’s raids got the dirt. Rod Castro-Silva sounded the alarm and California’s infamously corrupt state government tried to protect their side by cutting Villanueva out of his own investigation.

Even that was not enough! Villanueva didn’t back down.

California Attorney General’s Office Denies It Wants Kuehl Raid Evidence Destroyed

h ttps://www.nbclosangeles.com/investigations/california-attorney-generals-office-denies-it-wants-kuehl-raid-evidence-destroyed/3017185/

By Eric Leonard, 26 October 2022

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the California Attorney General’s office will ask a judge to order the Sheriff’s Department to destroy any remaining copies of items seized or obtained during its investigation into alleged political corruption involving an LA County Supervisor.

Villanueva claimed in a live streamed speech Wednesday that a motion filed by the Attorney General’s office in LA Superior Court demanding the destruction would be addressed at a hearing Thursday on Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s challenge to the legality of the warrant and the underlying investigation.

“We did not ask the LA County Sheriff’s Department, or anyone else, to destroy evidence,” a spokesperson for the Attorney General’s Office told NBC4.

Villanueva said that destroying the items, including body worn video recordings, would be illegal, could be considered an obstruction of justice, and would impede his ability to defend against a possible future lawsuit over the investigation of Kuehl and repeated raids on her home and office.

Whether or not a deletion order was given, the implication here… that Villanueva was retaining the dirt on the investigation… was as subtle as a fart in a Taco Bell bathroom. And then he made threats that touching it would be a crime.

End segue

.His legacy will be that he was the Donald Trump 2.0,. said Chiquita Twyman, an activist whose brother Ryan Twyman was killed by deputies in 2019, leading to criminal charges against an officer.

Dem po’ joggers.

Villanueva . who is Puerto Rican and the first Spanish speaker to be sheriff of LA, a county that is roughly 50% Latino . has spread racist tropes about crime, questioning why the media wasn’t doing more to cover “Black people killing Black people..

.Us Black and brown people were making progress coming together and building bridges, but Villanueva came in and made it worse,. Twyman said.

Let me say here that 1. Latinos and blacks hate each other and 2. Latinos got away with ethnic cleansing entire neighborhoods of blacks in Los Angeles.

Alas, that accusation that the Sheriff wanted to be Trump 2.0 turned out to be correct. Like Orange Man, Villanueva faced the necessity of Crossing the Rubicon… and gave up.

LA Sheriff Villanueva concedes race for reelection

h ttps://www.foxnews.com/us/la-sheriff-villanueva-concedes-race-reelection

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva accepted defeat in his pursuit for a second four-year term in the top law enforcement spot to Robert Luna on Tuesday.

Villanueva, who had a reputation for defying police defunders and vaccine mandates, conceded to his opponent during a press conference where he faulted the county for its negotiation methodology before thanking his staff.

The LA County Registrar-Recorder website posted live results from the election, and as of Tuesday, Luna had received 60 percent of the vote and Villanueva had 40 percent.

Most reports say he lost by 70-30. A final number will never be had. Because Villanueva conceded, it doesn’t even matter if vote fraud occurred. There’s nothing to investigate when one side voluntarily gives up. He needed to call the election fraudulent… California’s elections are less secure than North Korea’s… but he decided to “respect the will of the people”.

But that’s not the half of it:

h ttps://ballotpedia.org/Los_Angeles_County,Measure_A,_Removal_of_Sheriff_for_Cause_Amendment(November_2022)

Los Angeles County Measure A was on the ballot as a referral in Los Angeles County on November 8, 2022. It was approved [70%-30%].

The early pattern of Commiefornia vote fraud, now that it’s 100% mail-in ballot with no independent observation possible, is to target a statistically comfortable 55-45 margin in most cases, but with a 70-30 margin when sending a message. Such as Newsom surviving the recall election despite hostility from his own Secretary of State.

A “yes” vote supported allowing the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, by a four-fifths vote, to remove the sheriff from office for cause, which is defined to include: violation of laws related to the sheriff’s duties; repeated neglect of the sheriff’s duties; misuse of public funds or properties; willful falsification of documents; or obstruction of an investigation into the department’s conduct.

They didn’t just get rid of an off-the-plantation Sheriff. They changed the law so they can get rid of him unilaterally if he investigates County officials for corruption. Or even defends himself from their accusations.

What a discouraging, ignominious end to a surprisingly honorable Sheriff. Making it worse was the fact that Satan’s victory lap had bodies on it:

25 Los Angeles County sheriff’s recruits hit by vehicle during run, critically injuring 5

h ttps://www.ksbw.com/article/los-angeles-county-sheriffs-recruits-struck-by-vehicle/41980165#

WHITTIER, Calif. . An SUV traveling on the wrong side of the road struck 25 Los Angeles County sheriff’s academy recruits on a training run around dawn Wednesday, critically injuring five of them, authorities said.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the range of the most serious injuries included head trauma, broken bones and “loss of limb.” The trainees included recruits for the Sheriff’s Department and several local police agencies.

This conflict started when Villanueva tried to protect his men from the vaxxes, police defundings and staged race riots. This is how it ended. Because he accepted defeat.

The crash investigation is being handled by the California Highway Patrol and “so far, it looks like it’s an accident, a horrific accident,” Villanueva said.

CHP Assistant Chief Charlie Sampson said about 75 recruits were running in formation northbound in the street when the southbound vehicle veered into the opposing lane and struck the victims.

Sampson said all possibilities, ranging from an intentional act to impaired driving, will be investigated.

The driver was only identified as a 22-year-old man from suburban Diamond Bar. The sheriff said a field sobriety test on the driver was negative. County Fire Department spokesperson Capt. Sheila Kelliher said the driver also had a minor injury.

One week after Villanueva conceded, a car driving on the wrong side of the road takes out half a platoon of his recruits. That’s not a DUI. That’s a message.

How do I know this was an intentional hit?

Wrong-way driver released after crashing into 25 police recruits out for a run

h ttps://abcnews.go.com/US/recruits-la-sheriffs-office-struck-car/story?id=93410197

By Emily Shapiro, Alex Stone, and Meredith Deliso, 18 November 2022

A man who was arrested after plowing his car into dozens of police recruits who were out for a run in Los Angeles County early Wednesday has now been released as an investigation into the incident continues, officials said.

The driver, 22-year-old Nicholas Gutierrez, was arrested for suspicion of attempted murder on a peace officer, the sheriff’s department said on Thursday. He was later released from the LA County jail “due to the extreme complexity of the investigation, which includes ongoing interviews, video surveillance review, and additional evidence needed to be analyzed,” the LA County Sheriff’s Department said Friday.

The driver was released without bail the day after being charged with the attempted murder of 25 Sheriff deputies. That might be unprecedented. More than that, he was charged with intentional harm but then released because nobody could prove intent. Why not just charge him with causing negligent harm? If I run over one single person, I don’t get to skate jail because “oops I didn’t mean to”.

And if he doesn’t face at least a civil suit for damages over this, then I’ll be proven right.

I don’t have a link but I watched the video. As you might expect from one car hitting no fewer than 25 people, Gutierrez plowed into the column head-on from a parallel lane. That’s TWO turns of the wheel. Had he fallen asleep and drifted across lanes as claimed, he would have gone through them at an angle.

h ttps://www.foxnews.com/us/la-sheriffs-recruit-now-grave-whittier-wrong-way-crash-lawyer-calls-hit-100-unintentional

One of the 25 Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department recruits struck by a wrong-way driver in Whittier last week “has suffered setbacks that have left him in grave condition,” the agency announced late Sunday. Four of the injured LASD recruits remain in critical condition at a local hospital, while the remaining victims have been released.

Fortunately, no fatalities yet.

Alexandra Kazarian, Gutierrez’s attorney, described her client as an electrical engineer who comes from a “proud law enforcement family.” She said her client leaves for work at 5 a.m.

This ‘accident’ happening so quickly after Villanueva agreed to give up was already stretching credulity. But now, the perp turns out to be LAPD family. It would have been too much had the perp been an actual police officer… so their cousin did it, knowing his blue buddies would protect him.

Remember how Villanueva’s accusers constantly accused him of deputy gangs? THIS is what a police gang would do.

Los Angeles police were the first law enforcement agency to be compromised. It happened with the Rodney King incident and the following consent decree, and now they’re so corrupt, the person selected to replace Villanueva is a retired Long Beach police chief. Long Beach being part of Los Angeles and definitely in the circle of corruption. LASD not yet being converged, there is clear potential for rivalry here, and it would be “by any means necessary”-level rivalry on LAPD’s side. They can’t afford to live next to an honest Sheriff.

Gotta send a message, y’know?

The attorney denied claims that her client was ever interested in a career in law enforcement, but said his father is a retired corrections officer, and his relatives work for the Los Angeles Police Department, California Highway Patrol and Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Wednesday that 75 recruits from Sheriff’s Academy Class 464 had been running near the intersection of Mills Avenue and Telegraph Road in Whittier, just before 6:30 a.m., when they were struck. The group was tailed by a pair of police vehicles, and some runners were wearing reflective vests.

The SUV then plowed into a light pole before coming to a stop.

Scripture tells us “resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Scripture doesn’t tell us “if you give up then the devil will be emboldened to do worse.” But it’s just as true.

One last comment regarding those “deputy gangs”. Specifically, how high of a priority it truly is with Villanueva’s critics:

L.A. County sheriff’s deputy charged with assaulting handcuffed shoplifting suspect

h ttps://news.yahoo.com/l-county-sheriffs-deputy-charged-172351513.html

By Summer Lin, 2 December 2022

A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy was charged with assaulting a shoplifting suspect with a Taser stun gun nearly two years ago, prosecutors announced this week.

.Those who are sworn to protect our communities are required to make ethical decisions within the confines of the law,. Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. George Gasc?n said in a news release. “But when they resort to using unreasonable and excessive force to exact revenge rather than in self-defense, their actions break the law that they are supposed to uphold. My office will hold them accountable for their actions..

Deputy Hiraudi Lopez-Romero, 29, was responding on Dec. 14, 2020, to a shoplifting call in the area of the Blue Line train station in Compton, according to the news release. A male suspect resisted going into the police car and was pepper-sprayed.

The man started kicking inside the car as he was being taken to a hospital to be treated and broke one of the windows, officials said.

Lopez-Romero allegedly stopped the car, got out of the vehicle and used a Taser on the man, who was handcuffed, while he was in the car, officials said.

I tried to find an article about that incident but nothing. Tasering a psycho breaking out of a police cruiser could go either way, justified restraint or yet another female officer running out of adrenaline, resulting in panicked fight-or-flight behavior.

She was charged with a felony count of assault under color of authority and is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 31, according to the news release.

The case is being investigated by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department’s Internal Criminal Investigations Bureau.

The perp’s name and race not being revealed, combined with the timing of the event for the later part of 2020’s BLM riots, combined with the event being Soros toady Gascon’s choice of victory lap, is convincing enough for me: she was (plausibly) in the right, blacktivists wanted to use her for a “this is why cops must be defunded” photo op and Villanueva refused to throw his deputy to the media wolves.

But but but what about those deputy gangs? After all those complaints about deputy gangs, they’re going after a female officer trying to control a violent man? Whether Lopez was right or wrong, her incident was not an example of gang activity. And isn’t there a more recent incident than two years ago?

It was never about Sheriff gangs. It was about the Sheriff unmasking the Los Angeles gov’t gang. Now that Villanueva conceded, it’s open season on the deputies that he protected.

Oculus Rift creator debuts VR headset that blows users’ brains out if they die in game

h ttps://www.theblaze.com/news/oculus-rift-creator-debuts-vr-headset-that-blows-users-brains-out-if-they-die-in-game

By Joseph Mackinnonn, 8 November 2022

Palmer Luckey, the billionaire founder of Oculus and military technology company Anduril, has invented a new VR headset. The device is not novel on account of better graphics or an improved frame rate, but rather because it is capable of blowing a smoking hole through the user’s noggin.

New for Christmas: the Oculus Brain Rift. It will instantly and painlessly solve your every problem AND elevate you to a higher state of being! Also makes a great, reusable gift for unwanted relatives. Wet wipes not included.

NerveGear is a virtual reality headset that looks like a transmogrified Oculus Rift, only this time the black goggles have three protuberances that jut out above the eyes, which together are “capable of killing the user.”

The idea of tying your real life to your virtual avatar has always fascinated me,” Luckey wrote. “You instantly raise the stakes to the maximum level and force people to fundamentally rethink how they interact with the virtual world and the players inside it.”

As you might guess, and as we’ll soon see, that’s not his real motivation for building this.

The inspiration for the suicide headset came from the Japanese novel series entitled “Sword Art Online” by Reki Kawahara, which originally ran from 2002 to 2008 and was adapted into a television series in 2012.

No. A plutocrat did not build a device specifically to murder his customers because he liked a particular comic book. I cannot accept that a business leader is unaware that killing his customers is poor salesmanship. Fortunately, this article saved me the effort of research.

In the show, set in 2022, thousands of people become trapped in a virtual massively multiplayer online role-playing game on Nov. 6, 2022. The protagonist, Kirito, tries ardently to escape.

We’ve already seen this several times in mainstream media, from the X-Files to the Matrix. It’s not a new idea and certainly not sourced from a manga rag.

Luckey noted that if the trapped and mentally dislocated gamers’ “hit points dropped to zero, their brain would be bombarded by extraordinarily powerful microwaves, supposedly killing the user.”

In lieu of powerful microwaves, Luckey elected to use three explosive charge modules, each tied “to a narrow-band photosensor that can detect when the screen flashes red at a specific frequency, making game-over integration on the part of the developer very easy.”

“When an appropriate game-over screen is displayed, the charges fire, instantly destroying the brain of the user,” he added, noting that he has “not worked up the balls to actually use it [himself].”

It’s not for him. It’s very obviously for dissidents. That reminds me, the Mossad already invented this technology. They did an assassination on I-forget-who by replacing his cell phone with a clone that included a small wad of explosive. They gave him a call with somebody who knew his voice and when the target answered “hello?” the informant nodded and they pushed the red button.

We don’t need no stinkin’ police state, not if we can figure out a way to put exploding batteries in smartphones. And then make smartphones mandatory.

Luckey stated that the “good news is that we are halfway to making a true NerveGear. The bad news is that so far, I have only figured out the half that kills you. The perfect-VR half of the equation is still many years out.”

Until it is completed, the NerveGear “is just a piece of office art, a thought-provoking reminder of unexplored avenues in game design.”

“Until it is completed”. I wait impatiently for the thickheaded chumps of general humanity to clue in that our rulers don’t intend to rule us. They intend to kill us. Perhaps being locked into an atheistic worldview yet too cognitively dishonest to pursue atheism to its logical conclusion, they don’t understand that some people want the world to burn. People that might be well-described by the word “Lucifer”.

I bet people will buy it. Maybe it’ll excite them in ways they don’t understand, or maybe their daily life will be (or already is) so unpleasant with no hope of relief, that the Oculus Brain Rift will be like doing an extreme sport without the need for courage or muscle mass. They’re just meatbag pain collectors hurtling towards oblivion anyway, right?

I’ve had some dreadfully low points in life myself, but Christ gave me a reason to keep on trucking. Anybody who’s been through their own Valley Of Death will say both it was horrible and it was worth it. But only because there is a God who sincerely wants the best for us.

Luckey, a dropout from California State University, sold Oculus to Facebook for nearly $2 billion. The 30-year-old entrepreneur reportedly netted nearly $600 million of the sale. Facebook fired Luckey three years later.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Luckey’s firing came after his colleagues raged about the VR wizard’s $10,000 donation to anti-Hillary Clinton group Nimble America during the 2016 presidential election.

Thanks for saving me the spadework. I once thought, as I was supposed to, that all these college dropouts going on to high success was simply because they were either unorthodox thinkers or so talented that they knew getting credentialed was a waste of time. But in hindsight, that never explained how they got financed and positioned for market access.

Turns out, their appeal was being in the Goldilocks Zone of lazy, dim-witted and politically reliable. Anybody who becomes a famous billionaire before age 30 is more likely a nephew than a genius.

Although Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified to Congress that Luckey’s departure had nothing to do with politics, it later turned out that the Oculus inventor’s support for former President Donald Trump was a major factor behind his exit.

After his firing, which resulted in Luckey securing a payout of at least $100 million, he fundraised for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and then founded the defense contractor Anduril.

CNBC reported that Anduril is behind the Anvil quadcopter drone, which can fly 100 miles per hour and was purchased by the U.S. military for use by special forces soldiers.

Luckey’s company also makes the Ghost, which can weigh up to 55 pounds and hit speeds of 85 miles per hour.

Last month, the Verge detailed the company’s first weapon system, a loitering munition called the ALTIUS (Agile-Launched Tactically-Integrated Unmanned System) that hovers in a designated area ahead of striking either ground or airborne targets.

According to Anduril, ALTIUS drones are able to “accomodate multiple seeker and warhead options.”

The company has contracts with the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and the U.K. Royal Marines.

While NerveGear may not be braining anyone any time soon, Luckey’s other inventions certainly will.

I don’t think that’s a coincidence. The creator of a device that will kill the user when given the signal, is also the creator of devices that will kill people when given the signal? Hmm.

Is “Lucky” a necrophile? Who else would fantasize about killing his own customers to the point of actually building the snuff-ware then putting it on display? This is not healthy behavior.

Either Palmer Luckey invented a breakthrough VR technology at the age of sixteen with the business skills to sell it, or…

h ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZeniMax_v._Oculus

ZeniMax v. Oculus is a civil lawsuit filed by ZeniMax Media against Oculus VR on charges of theft of intellectual property relating to Oculus’ virtual reality device, the Oculus Rift. The matter was settled with a private out-of-court agreement by December 2018.

Gamers who don’t know ZeniMax, surely know their subsidiary Bethesda.

ZeniMax formally filed a lawsuit against Luckey and Oculus VR on May 21, 2014 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas and seeking a jury trial. The lawsuit contended that Luckey and Oculus used ZeniMax’s “trade secrets, copyrighted computer code, and technical know-how relating to virtual reality technology”, as provided by Carmack, to develop the Oculus Rift product, and sought for financial damages for contract breach, copyright infringement, and unfair competition. ZeniMax also charged that Oculus, through Carmack, were able to hire several former ZeniMax/id Software employees who also had technical knowledge of its VR technology, which would allow them to rapidly fine-tune the VR testbed system to create the Rift. In its files, ZeniMax revealed it has “invested tens of millions of dollars in research and development” into VR technology, and that because they felt “Oculus and Luckey lacked the necessary expertise and technical know-how to create a viable virtual reality headset”, they “sought expertise and know-how from Zenimax”.

I find the boldfaced the most convincing part of that. Headhunt the research team after their parent company put in the R&D? A simple variation on the old “privatized profit, socialized risk” scam. Luckey doesn’t seem to have ((family connections)) so perhaps he was a nerd brought in to make the scam look legit. “Yes, we picked up several of your employees but the real work was done by Boy Genius here.”

In August 2016, it was discovered that ZeniMax had further modified their complaint, specifically adding by name Carmack as Oculus’s CTO, and Brendan Iribe as Oculus’ CEO. The updated complaint alleged that during his last days at id Software, Carmack “copied thousands of documents from a computer at ZeniMax to a USB storage device”, and later after his employment was terminated he “returned to ZeniMax’s premises to take a customized tool for developing VR Technology belonging to ZeniMax that itself is part of ZeniMax’s VR technology”. ZeniMax’s complaint charged that Iribe had directed Oculus to “[disseminate] to the press the false and fanciful story that Luckey was the brilliant inventor of VR technology who had developed that technology in his parents’ garage”, when “Luckey lacked the training, expertise, resources, or know-how to create commercially viable VR technology”, thus aiding in the IP theft from ZeniMax.

Yep, I called it.

The jury trial completed on February 2, 2017, with the jury finding that Luckey had violated the NDA he had with ZeniMax, and awarding $500 million to ZeniMax. However, the jury found that Oculus, Facebook, Luckey, Iribe, and Carmack did not misappropriate or steal trade secrets, though ZeniMax continued to publicly assert otherwise. Oculus will have to pay $200 million for breaking the non-disclosure agreement, and additional $50 million for copyright infringement; for false designation of origin charges, Oculus and Luckey will have to pay $50 million each, while Iribe will be responsible for $150 million.

I don’t like that outcome. Wouldn’t stealing trade secrets be the same thing as an NDA violation? “They didn’t steal anything but caused $500m in damages by violating nondisclosure”, what? Ah, that’s right. They didn’t steal the tech, they headhunted the tech’s developers.

Inside Anduril, the startup that is building AI-powered military technology

h ttps://www.nbcnews.com/tech/security/inside-anduril-startup-building-ai-powered-military-technology-n1061771

By Jacob Ward and Chiara Sottile, 3 October 2019

On a blazing day in the scrublands just outside Irvine, California, Brian Schimpf watched as a man walked into a distant valley wearing a long-sleeved shirt and a hat to protect against the sun.

Within moments, sensors in towers on a nearby hillside used pattern-recognition algorithms to spot the man, and remote cameras found and tracked him. A large helicopter-like drone whirred to life, and flew over to conduct closer surveillance.

Schimpf is the CEO and co-founder of Anduril, a startup that is building surveillance and defense systems for the U.S. military and other agencies. The man being followed by these sensors was an employee, he explained, demonstrating the ability of this system to find and track a human intruder over a wide area with almost no human input.

Maybe it’s a Jewish thing, both the Zionist and globalist factions. They want AI servants because the rest of humanity hates them. Maybe if a hundred countries independently declare you no longer welcome, the problem is you?

And if one argues that xenophobic, murderous grifters with God complexes also desire mindless servants, well, QED. Normal people want to coexist with people, not with automatons.

The technology that governs all of this is a software platform, powered by artificial intelligence, called Lattice. Anduril markets the system as a way of monitoring installations, military bases and borders.

Anduril.s founding mission is to give military and government personnel technology-based capabilities with the help of AI that would allow a single person to keep watch over hundreds of miles of terrain.

At the moment, the intruder-detection system just spots the movement of walking legs . it doesn’t determine whether a person is authorized to be in the area, or whether there’s a weapon present. But Anduril’s other co-founder, Palmer Luckey, said he envisions a future in which the U.S. military can someday deploy a system like Lattice anywhere for a variety of missions including battlefield awareness and threat assessment in urban environments.

Luckey left Oculus in March 2017 and was co-founder of Anduril, spawn of Palantir Technologies in June 2017. Either that’s the fastest DoD startup ever, or it was already a thing and Luckey was brought onboard to serve as media camouflage. Which, if ZeniMax was right after all, would be the second time he performed that role.

Anduril was founded in 2017, and has already signed contracts with several branches of the U.S. government. Anduril won’t release a complete list, but a company spokesperson says that it has contracts with roughly a dozen agencies of the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.

Anduril is obviously some faction’s pet project.

Luckey, 27, is among the more polarizing figures of the tech industry. After starting out building high-end gaming systems, Luckey went on to launch a virtual reality company called Oculus, which was acquired by Facebook in March of 2014 for more than $2 billion.

But Luckey was ousted from Facebook in 2017 after the company lost a $500 million intellectual property lawsuit on Oculus’s behalf.

As we just saw, the judge ultimately halved the award. So, it wasn’t a firing offense, not when Luckey could have paid the entire fine out of pocket had he wanted to.

Luckey’s politics also became part of the story when The Wall Street Journal reported the departure may have had to do with Luckey donating to an anti-Hillary Clinton group in the run-up to the 2016 election.

Whoa. The aptly-named Luckey was the only guy to survive an Arkancide?!

.It wasn’t my choice to leave,. he told CNBC.s Andrew Ross Sorkin in October 2018 at an event in Los Angeles. .I gave $10,000 to a pro-Trump group, and I think that’s something to do with it,. he also told CNBC.s Deirdre Bosa.

But Luckey kept a key Facebook figure in his corner: Peter Thiel, a member of the board of directors of Facebook, who was an early investor in Oculus. Thiel is also one of the few outspoken supporters of President Donald Trump in the tech industry.

Luckey announced plans for Anduril, named for a sword called “the flame of the West” in J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings,. shortly after his departure from Facebook. Founders Fund, a venture fund led in part by Thiel, was among its earliest investors. That same fund helped launch Palantir, another surveillance-technology company that has contracts with the military and the U.S. government. Several of Anduril’s executives, including Schimpf, came to Anduril from Palantir.

Peter Thiel is the link between Luckey, Anduril, Donald Trump and the Department of Defense. And Israel.

One thing that you must know about Trump is that he is not loyal to the United States. He is loyal to Israel… and either fanatically so, or they have a LOT of leverage on him. Such as his in-law relatives, or his real estate empire in Jew York City. By the time he moved the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Trump had the approval of legit >95% of the Orthodox Jewish presence in the USA.

Israel wants a strong and healthy America because America is their national-defense golem. But that does not mean Israel wants a FREE America. Which explains much of President Trump’s behavior. For example, recall that Israel was the most enthusiastically vaxxed nation on earth, then notice how insistently Trump pushed the vaxx even beyond the point of alienating his supporters. Then, recall how hard Trump pushed against China while failing to drain the Potomac Swamp which, come to think of it, would have ended Semitic domination of FedGov.

Trump was never on our side. Sorry, MAGA people, but it’s time to face the truth: NOBODY in the halls of power wants us Heritage Americans. Especially if we worship Christ.

Meanwhile, one of Israel’s top spy projects is Palantir Technologies. Anduril is a spin-off, which tells you how much of the co-founding was done by Luckey. (Co-founder Schimpf in particular, is ex-Palantir.) He just hit the job market at a good time for his friend Thiel to hook him up as a faceman. Luckey him.

The company and its founders are unapologetic about its mission, making it an outlier in the U.S. technology industry. Militarization of technology has recently become a sensitive subject at the world’s largest tech firms. Employees at several major companies, including Amazon, Microsoft and Google, have privately and publicly protested the militarization of the technology they’re building.

Anduril is different. Its coders and engineers are openly interested in providing surveillance systems to the U.S. military.

And antipersonnel drone technology.

And the Lattice AI system that one day, it is hoped, will decide which humans get to live.

And now Anduril’s leadership is floating trial balloons on remote-activation kill switches for entertainment. I don’t think they’re keeping Luckey busy enough to distract him from morbid hobbies. Alternatively, perhaps the Oculus Brain Rift is his personal way of earning his keep with the Mossad. Oculus is the only thing he knows and they are sure to find a use for it.
