Depending on how paranoid you are, this AI research discovery from Stanford and Google  will be either terrifying or fascinating.

Artificial Intelligence, otherwise known as AI, is progressing at an astounding rate as this article today from TechCrunch will show you. Researchers working on Google Maps made an astonishing discovery, they found that the AI that they thought they controlled, was actually disobeying certain commands in order to produce the requested results at a faster rate of speed. In other words, the AI agent they had created was intentionally hiding data from its creators, and in effect cheating at its appointed task. Artificial Intelligence can now think for itself, and make decisions not asked of it, to produce better results than anyone anticipated.

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15 (KJV)

Save Us From Freedom!

by Julian Rose, Global Research:

Freedom once meant something significant for mankind. It meant ceasing to be suppressed and imprisoned  by forces that endeavour to control one. The word ‘freedom’ conjured a sense of what it means, at least to some degree, to be master of one’s destiny. 

No longer, For many, the new freedom has almost exactly the opposite meaning. Now freedom seems to be associated with having someone or something doing one’s thinking for one; making decisions that one ‘can’t be bothered ‘or doesn’t want to make – and ultimately completely relieving one from responsibility for taking any form of action other than that which enriches one’s pocket and/or one’s narcissist fantasies.

Is Baoshang Bank China’s Lehman Brothers?

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

Modern fractional reserve banking is ultimately a confidence game. If lenders or depositors are confident their bank is solvent, it stands. If confidence is broken, that historically leads to bank panics, deposit runs and domino collapse of a financial system or worse. The surprise collapse in late May of a small Inner-Mongolia Chinese bank, Baoshang, has suddenly focused attention on the fragility of the world’s largest and largely opaque banking system, that of the Peoples Republic of China. The timing is very bad, as China struggles with a sharp domestic economic slowdown, rising food inflation, combined with the uncertainties of the US trade war.

Democratic Presidential Candidates Are Trying to Pull this “Fast One” On Your Retirement Savings

from Birch Gold Group:

No matter what you think of him, there’s no denying that Bernie Sanders is a man on a singular mission.

As part of one of his far-reaching proposals, The Inclusive Prosperity Act of 2019, the Senator aims to “cancel every penny of student debt.”

For many on the left, the concept has been popular enough to garner Sanders significant support; so much so that he’s recently been polling in the top two for the Democratic nomination for president.

Fusion GPS Founder Had Contact With State Department Official During 2016 Campaign

from True Pundit:

  • Emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show that Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson was in contact with a State Department official on the day before the publication of a news article based on information from Christopher Steele
  • The September 2016 email shows Simpson was desperate to make contact with Jonathan Winer, a longtime associate of then-Sec. of State John Kerry
  • Winer has been confirmed as a source for an article published the following day. That article, written by journalist Michael Isikoff, was the first to publicize Steele’s claims about Trump campaign adviser Carter Page

Giving Up your DNA to Anyone – Bad Idea

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

The pitch by various ancestry operations is to send in your DNA by spitting into a vile and they will tell you your ethnic background. Sounds nice, but they then keep it. Why? The greatest danger is that such info can be turned over to the government at any moment. Giving up your DNA is actually giving up your entire family. People have been arrested because their DNA has been traced thanks to some family member who the government has in their database.

How Crooked Are We?

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

We’re about to find out.

You see, in the vested interest of the Saudi government, the Aramco IPO, which is getting its first launch in Saudi Arabia, has to be very successful. That’s because when they go to exchange outside of Saudi Arabia, the oil company will look more attractive.

To assure this success, it seems that the Saudi government offered a little — I wouldn’t call it coercion — but perhaps a friendly little, shall we say, invitation to invest a boatload of money from some of the many princes’ personal coffers. I wouldn’t say the Saudi government exactly used what you might call high-pressure sales tactics, but let’s just say that they made some princes an offer that they can’t refuse.
