Uncle Sam Prepares His Robot Army

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:

… it is entirely possible that the next major war will be fought not by human soldiers but by telepathically controlled drone swarms and autonomous weapons. I mean, humans will die, of course, they just won’t be required to do the fighting.

OK, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. Which do you want first? The good news? OK, no problem. You know that old anti-war cliché about “Suppose They Gave A War And No One Came“? Well that slogan might be closer to becoming reality than you think.  Exhibit A: This story from Japan Today. “SDF recruiters struggle as applicant pool dries up.” You see, it seems that recruiters are having a tougher time than ever selling Japan’s youth on the glitz and glamour of a career in the nation’s “Self-Defense Force” (aka Japan’s Stealth Army). The country’s infamous plummeting birth rate has created a shortage of 18-26 year olds in the job market (11 million today compared to 17 million just 24 years ago), meaning that universities and corporations are viciously competing to recruit high school graduates. And that competition has left those struggling to sell teenagers on the benefits of joining the military in the dust.

BREAKING: Sex Crimes Prosecutor Rachel Mitchell COMPLETELY EXONERATES Judge Kavanaugh in NEW REPORT!

by Jacob Wohl, The Gateway Pundit:

After a careful review of all of the evidence put fourth by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in her accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell has released a report which completely exonerates the judge.

Sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, a non-partisan third-party with more than 25 years’ experience prosecuting sex crimes in the state of Arizona, carefully reviewed the allegations made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, including hours of testimony, and has released a report on the matter. In the report, Mitchell points out more than a dozen glaring inconsistencies in Dr. Ford’s account and paints the accusations as potentially fraudulent.

Donald Trump, The Manchurian Candidate and The Russia Probe. The Rosenstein Comey Mueller Intrigue

by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research:

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein was slated to be fired by President Trump on Thursday September 27.   That meeting has been postponed until next week to avoid an overlap with the Senate hearings on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. In the meantime, Rosenstein has agreed to meet privately with Republican lawmakers. 

The outcome of the Rosenstein affair is uncertain. It is intimately related to the history of Russia-Gate which was launched prior to the November 2016 elections. Russia-Gate consisted in presenting Trump as a Manchurian candidate controlled by the Kremlin.

1ST LAW OF HAMMURABI CODE

by Jim Quinn, The Burning Platform:

Notice the first three laws in the Hammurabi Code. Too bad we can’t implement it against the feckless fucks making baseless accusations against Kavanaugh this week.

1. If any one ensnare another, putting a ban upon him, but he can not prove it, then he that ensnared him shall be put to death.

2. If any one bring an accusation against a man, and the accused go to the river and leap into the river, if he sink in the river his accuser shall take possession of his house. But if the river prove that the accused is not guilty, and he escape unhurt, then he who had brought the accusation shall be put to death, while he who leaped into the river shall take possession of the house that had belonged to his accuser.

When Meritocracy Dies

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

This is an interesting essay....

Programs can’t work for years without reboots anymore. Sometimes even days are too much to ask. Random stuff happens and nobody knows why.

What’s worse, nobody has time to stop and figure out what happened. Why bother if you can always buy your way out of it. Spin another AWS instance. Restart process. Drop and restore the whole database. Write a watchdog that will restart your broken app every 20 minutes. Include same resources multiple times, zip and ship. Move fast, don’t fix.

That is not engineering. That’s just lazy programming. Engineering is understanding performance, structure, limits of what you build, deeply. Combining poorly written stuff with more poorly written stuff goes strictly against that. To progress, we need to understand what and why are we doing.

The Return of the Inquisition: Do you confess?

0

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:

In 279 BC, the vast army of King Pyrrhus of Epirus was met by Roman forces at the Battle of Asculum in southern Italy, in what would be one of the costliest military engagements of ancient history.

Pyrrhus fancied himself the second coming of Alexander the Great and believed that he was a descendant of Achilles.

Many of his peers and contemporaries believed Pyrrhus to be the greatest military commander of all time.

Trump: Dems Trying to “Erase Your Ancestors’ Legacy and Destroy Our Proud American Heritage”

0

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

President Donald Trump encouraged Republicans to vote at his rally in West Virginia on Saturday by warning them that Democrats are trying to tear down everything their ancestors have created.

“Your ancestors did not pour out their blood, sweat and tears so that we could sit at home while others try to erase their legacy and destroy our proud American heritage,” Trump said. “That’s what the Democrats are trying to do with their crazy policies.”

Anti-Defamation League, Facebook, Google & Youtube Appoint Themselves As Official Internet Censor

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:The Anti-Defamation League is joining with Facebook, Google and others to further attempt to ‘curb hate speech and abuse’ on the internet.
  • Reflect On:Are these companies running the risk of awakening more people to their thinly-veiled attempts to censor internet content that goes against their preferred narrative?

If you are reading this, that means that articles that speak against the activities of the Anti-Defamation League are not being automatically scrubbed from the internet.

Lindsey Graham Blasts Feinstein’s “Despicable Process” As She Demands FBI Release Scope Of Kavanaugh Probe

from ZeroHedge:

Seemingly unsatisfied with the fact that The FBI will not be interviewing everyone in the United States (living and dead), The Hill reports that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is calling for the White House and the FBI to release the written directive President Trump sent launching the investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Feinstein sent a letter to White House counsel Don McGahn and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Sunday requesting that a copy of Trump’s written directive be released to the committee.
