Democrats wanted an agreement on using
artificial intelligence. It went nowhere

The Democratic National Committee was watching earlier this year as campaigns nationwide were experimenting with artificial intelligence. So the organization approached a handful of influential party campaign committees with a request: Sign onto guidelines that would commit them to use the technology in a “responsible” way. The draft agreement, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, was hardly full of revolutionary ideas. It asked campaigns to check work by AI tools, protect against biases and avoid using AI to create misleading content.

The democrats' inborn, flawed and biased intelligence works much better for them.

I suspect the Democrats want to put new restrictions on the use of AI because they regard any kind of intelligence as dangerous to them.

Funny thing about the arguments over AI impacts and fears... the 1970's film "Colossus: The Forbin Project" has been removed from the public streaming domains. The "powers that be" do NOT want folks to see it. Arguments pro/con regarding AI and what it portends are being shaped by - censorship. Hint: "Skynet" was NOT an original idea. Come with me if you want to live.

Pro-Hamas protesters disrupt Philly ‘Pride’ parade 5 replies

The first weekend of Pride Month in the “City of Brotherly Love” could be a preview of things to come when ideologically incompatible elements of the Democrat base come together. On a festive Sunday, LGBTQ+ revelers turned out in the streets of Philadelphia to celebrate their sexuality, kicking off an entire 30 days in which they will be honored by the government, corporations, pro-sports leagues, and the media, but the day didn’t go off without a hitch when pro-Hamas protesters disrupted their parade. Video footage posted to social media shows the clash of the aggrieved when a mob of anti-Israel activists crashed the holiday party, loudly chanting “Palestine will live forever!”
Puerto Rico Gov. Pedro Pierluisi concedes
defeat in surprise primary upset by Jenniffer González

Puerto Rico congressional representative Jenniffer González defeated Gov. Pedro Pierluisi in a surprise upset during a primary election held Sunday by their pro-statehood party. The two ran on the same ticket four years ago under the New Progressive Party, but González, a Republican, announced her plan to challenge Pierluisi, a Democrat, in early December. Public jabs between the two turned acrimonious during the campaign. Puerto Rico’s main political parties are divided by the island’s political status, so it’s common to find both Republicans and Democrats within the same party.

During the pandemic, the American people started to feel that Big Government was very cozy with Big Pharma. Now we know just how close they were. New data from the National Institutes of Health reveals the agency and its scientists collected $710 million in royalties during the pandemic, from late 2021 through 2023. These are payments made by private companies, like pharmaceuticals, to license medical innovations from government scientists.

The aunt of ex-Democratic Hawaiian Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard was stabbed multiple times and beaten with a hammer during a fight with her protege in Samoa last month, according to a report. Dr. Caroline Sinaviana-Gabbard, 78, was found dead on May 25 inside award-winning Samoan playwright Papalii Sia Figiel’s home in Vaivase-Uta, according to Spectrum News. The two women reportedly were alone inside Figiel’s home which doubles as the community’s local theater named GaluMoana Theater, when the deadly confrontation took place.

Chief Justice John Roberts on Thursday declined an invitation to meet with Democratic senators to talk about Supreme Court ethics and the controversy over flags that flew outside homes owned by Justice Samuel Alito. Roberts’ response came in a letter to the senators a day after Alito separately wrote them and House members to reject their demands that he recuse himself from major Supreme Court cases involving former President Donald Trump and the Jan. 6 rioters because of the flags, which are like those carried by rioters at the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.
Israelis: The Heroes of Our Time 4 replies

The people of Israel are peace-loving. They do not eagerly seek to join battles, they do not desire to destroy and kill. Even so, they once again find themselves forced to defend their homeland, their faith, and their right to live in peace. Perturbingly, they are besieged by those who deny their right to exist. Terrorist organizations, such as Hamas and ISIS, in contrast, appear to be driven by aggression, at times even a lust for violence, believed by many to be divinely sanctioned. At this time, however, Israelis seem to be alone in their task, and continually faced with obstacles their so-called allies place in the way of swift victory.

Some years ago, I was trying a denaturalization case of someone who aided the Nazis. As an aside, the judge mentioned that his dad had been distraught upon hearing of the Hitler-Stalin pact because he knew it meant there would be a world war. I felt much the same upon reading of the verdict in the New York case against President Trump. There have been a number of fine analyses of the case itself, and I have chosen one which I discuss below for its clarity, but I’m concentrating today on the aftermath of this ill-conceived political hit job.

Former President Donald Trump was reportedly subjected to boos and jeering from hordes of self-righteous libertarians this weekend. Trump addressed attendees at this convention, which will conclude with the nomination of their candidate for president. One thing is for sure: whoever the libertarians will nominate won’t win the 2024 election. After pervasive heckling, Trump delivered some haymakers of his own, specifically how this party remains in the basement of American politics, saddled with loser candidates with equally ineffective campaigns. The former president tried taking a stab at clinching this party's nomination (via Associated Press):

Former President Donald Trump managed to pull off a campaign miracle with a wildly successful rally in South Bronx on Thursday night. The Bronx is the poorest borough in New York City, and South Bronx is the poorest area. Most residents are black or brown, and they vote overwhelmingly Democrat. No Republican presidential candidate has gone anywhere near the area in decades. On Thursday morning, heavy rains flooded the park where the rally was to be held. Bronx-based Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted “God is good” upon seeing the weather, believing it would keep Trump crowds away. She also taunted Trump for being the victim of Democrat lawfare,

The Biden Administration’s recent announcement of tariffs, and other protectionist measures aimed at China, is the latest increase of economic tensions and search for political momentum. The White House moves may have increased the saliency of trade as an issue, but the ignition was the December announcement of U.S. Steel’s agreement to be acquired by another publicly traded company, Japanese-based Nippon Steel. Aside of what strategic approach toward China is best, the U.S. Steel acquisition agreement illustrates how protectionist rhetoric, including the supposed defense of jobs, does not match economic reality. Similarly, the national security rationale is a thin smokescreen meant to scare Americans with borderline jingoism rather than facts.

Lancet‘s guidelines encourage writers to embrace gender identity instead of biological sex. “Sex and gender are often incorrectly portrayed as binary (female/male or woman/man), concordant, and static,” says the guidelines. Therefore, those submitting articles “should use the term ‘sex assigned at birth’ rather than ‘biological sex,’ ‘birth sex’ or ‘natal sex’ as it is more accurate and inclusive.” Inclusive for whom? (Rhetorical question. I know the answer. The men pretending to be females) The Lancet claims “there is no single, universally agreed-upon set of guidelines for defining sex and gender or reporting sex-based and gender based analyses.”

WASHINGTON — Facing mounting political pressure over the migrant influx at the U.S. southern border, President Joe Biden on Tuesday signed an executive order that will temporarily shut down asylum requests once the average number of daily encounters tops 2,500 between official ports of entry, according to a senior administration official. The shutdown would go into effect immediately since that threshold has already been met, a senior administration official said. The border would reopen only once that number falls to 1,500. The president’s order would come under the Immigration and Nationality Act sections 212(f) and 215(a) suspending entry of noncitizens who cross the southern border into the United States unlawfully.

President Biden will depart Tuesday night for France, where he will spend the rest of the week seeking to draw a sharp contrast in values and in global leadership with former President Trump, his 2024 political rival. Biden is set to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day invasion alongside other world leaders and deliver remarks focused on democracy and freedom, a major tentpole of his reelection bid. The president will cap off his visit with a stop at the same cemetery where Trump was unable to visit due to weather in 2018 and reportedly referred to those buried there as “losers” and “suckers,” comments Biden has repeatedly

Biden claimed his moral high ground while addressing a campaign event at the private residence of a wealthy Democratic donor couple in Greenwich, Connecticut, embracing a carping assessment of his 2024 presidential rival, the Independent reports.Eventually declaring, “This guy does not deserve to be president whether or not I’m running,” the octogenarian told his audience the nation’s justice is under threat: Folks, the campaign entered uncharted territory last week.

The "land corridors" could see US soldiers arriving at one of five ports along pre-planned routes to confront soldiers sent by Moscow, according to Nato officials. Existing plans have armed forces landing at Dutch ports before boarding trains through Germany and onwards to Poland. These news plans are still being put together and are being made behind the scenes to expand the routes to other ports.

Benjamin Netanyahu has something in common with Garth Brooks -- he has 'friends' in low places. In an interview with Time Magazine, Joe Biden addressed a number of issues, although just how much Biden addressed them may be up for some debate. Biden insists that he is one of Israel's greatest friends, and at least in the days after October 7, Biden appeared to have determination to act like a friend. These days, however, Biden's party has fractured on the war that Hamas started with those brutal massacres, rapes, and kidnappings. So Biden is tossing his "friends" under the bus today by quasi-accusing them of "war crimes," an

Everyone who has to go to court wants a sympathetic judge. But when a party goes “judge shopping,” it undermines people’s faith in the ability to get a fair hearing. It is bad enough when lawyers try to game the system in civil litigation. It is outrageous when the government does it to get home field advantage in criminal prosecutions, where the goal is to deny someone his/her freedom. Yet, that is exactly what the Department of Justice did recently, and was rightly called out for it. Isabella DeLuca was indicted in a case involving the Jan. 6 riot.

President Trump’s vice-presidential search is in the home stretch. Trump must pick a running mate prior to the Republican convention in mid-July, but he has ample incentive to pick one sooner. The sooner he makes his pick, the sooner that individual can prepare for a vice-presidential debate, which could be held as soon as July. Still, Trump has kept people guessing, as he likes to do.
