On Thursday, The Washington Post published an op-ed entitled, “There is a better option to keep Trump out of office than prosecution,” petitioning Congress to block former President Donald J. Trump from re-election in 2024.
“If the goal of prosecuting former President Donald Trump is to protect American democracy from a Trump comeback in 2024, there is a better way to go about it than filing criminal charges,” Foley wrote.
“Instead, Congress should exercise its constitutional authority to prohibit Trump from seeking the presidency again,” he continued.
Section 3 of the 14th amendment explicitly authorizes Congress and the DOJ to ban people who have “engaged in insurrection” from running for office. Something Foley repeatedly called on Congress to exercise.
Foley said, “Section 3 of the 14th Amendment sets out the procedure. It provides that ‘no person’ shall hold federal office who, ‘having previously taken an oath’ as a federal officer ‘to support the Constitution of the United States,’ has ‘engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same.'”
Foley noted that utilizing the 14th Amendment “would avoid all the extra burdens of a criminal trial, including proof beyond a reasonable doubt.”
Foley believes that the events of January 6 were a criminal act led by the former President but appeared to suggest pursuing a criminal conviction would be difficult.
“Moreover, safeguarding the 2024 election from the kind of subversion that Trump attempted in 2020 does not require putting him in prison for his past criminality. Instead, what is necessary is to disable him from being a candidate again,” he argued.
Foley went on to say that if Trump is not blocked from candidacy in the 2024 election, “the Republic is truly in trouble.”
The continued effort to characterize January 6 as one of the worst days in American history is a sham campaign to distract from the events that have indeed hurt the nation.
Attorney Jeffrey Scott Shapiro argues that January 6 was not an insurrection. He pointed out the creatively edited evidence used by the shame January 6 committee to paint Trump as a villain.
In one set of footage played in the public hearings, Trump told the protesters, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” However, the January 6 Committee cut out the “peacefully and patriotically” line in the video of Trump’s speech.
Trump: "Crazy Liz Cheney removed the part of my quote where I urged people to peacefully and patriotically make their voices heard. Think of that, compare that to Maxine Waters, you ever watch her?"

New York Post columnist Miranda Devine noted that “The 2020 BLM riots injured or blinded more than 2,000 police officers, resulted in the deaths of more than two dozen people and property damage worth more than $1 billion, the most expensive in insurance history.”
Devine said, “As RealClearInvestigations has found, the 2020 BLM riots resulted in ’15 times more injured police officers, 30 times as many arrests, and estimated damages in dollar terms up to 1,300 times more costly than those of the Capitol riot.'”

Protests erupted across the country as the far-left freaked out about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and return this issue back to the states where it belongs.
In Madison, Wisconsin, radicals swarmed the state’s capital building. At one point a woman screamed, “F*ck the police” and the entire crowd repeated it after her.
A 16-year-old boy was standing holding a sign that said “Cherish Life”. He was soon surrounded by a group of topless painted women who began screaming at him and blocking his sign.
Others surrounded the young man. A fellow American stepped up to support the young man and they began praying the rosary together. The 16-year-old said that he drove two hours today to be there and and his mom wasn’t too happy but he knew he had to come.
The left is trying to make the message that moving Roe v. Wade to the states is because God loving people don’t love women. This is a lie. Millions and millions of women in the US are pro-life.
There were a few other protesters who joined at the capital to send a message about the horror of abortion.
Today was a great day for freedom. We’ll see what happens tonight and over the weekend. We all know leftists are very violent and destructive.
The knives are out for Eric Greitens.
The former Missouri Governor is currently leading the polls in the Missouri US Senate race.
And this is very upsetting to the RINOs. They are desperate.
As The Gateway Pundit reported in March, the ex-wife of former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens accused him of abuse during their nine-year marriage. This was new information she kept to herself and away from all of the courts and media for several years. Eric Greitens is currently fighting for full custody of their two children.
Eric Greitens responded to these disgusting accusations of physical abuse and coercive behavior as “completely fabricated” and “baseless.”
The former Missouri governor is running for US Senate and is currently leading the race. Of course, the RINOs in Missouri and nationally are solidly against him.
Greitens told The Washington Times, “I am seeking full custody of my sons, and for their sake, I will continue to pray for their mother and hope that she gets the help that she needs.”
Eric Greitens also told The Gateway Pundit earlier this week that his ex-wife signed a custody agreement months ago following their divorce. She did not mention any abuse from her former husband in the signed documents during the battle for custody of their two sons. The two boys spend the majority of their time with their father today.
But this won’t stop the national RINOs from using these smears to take down Eric Greitens in the US Senate race.
A new PAC, Show Me Values, funded by big donors like Jeanne Sinquefield, will target Eric Greitens in the coming weeks with ads accusing him of scandals.
Sinquefield is a prominent donor of Mitch McConnell.
Greitens already announced he will not vote for Mitch McConnell as Senator when he enters the senate.
Just The News reported:
The group – Show Me Values – will starting Friday run TV ads targeting Greitens, according to an initial report by Politico,
The group will reportedly spend more than $1 million on commercials over the next week and will likely remain involved in the race through the state’s August primary.
The ads reportedly target Greitens for being involved in “scandal after scandal,” pointing to his forced resignation from the governorship and recent allegations made by his ex-wife, who is battling Greitens for custody of the former couple’s young children.
The super PAC is currently being supported by big dollar donors like Rex and Jeanne Sinquefield, who are supporting Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s candidacy for Senate.
Greitens pointed out Thursday that the Sinquefields have been consistent contributors to Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and the Senate Leadership Fund. Greitens has repeatedly said he would vote to oust McConnell from his Senate leadership position, should be be elected.
Despite a contentious and divided primary field, Greitens has consistently polled ahead of rivals including Schmitt, Rep. Vicky Hartzler, and Rep. Billy Long.

Democratic lawmakers called for expanding the Supreme Court and abolishing the filibuster following a string of Supreme Court rulings not in their favor this week.
Many Democrats and liberals reacted with anger over the three rulings that covered the exclusion of religious schools from a taxpayer-funded voucher program, expanded gun rights involving concealed carry and overturned Roe v. Wade’s findings on abortion, sending the power to limit abortion rights back to the states.
“This far-right Supreme Court has ended reproductive freedom as we know it,” Democratic Rep. Mondaire Jones of New York said after the high court issued its ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. “We must expand the Court.”
“I ask my colleagues in the Senate what other judicial outrage must we endure from the illegitimate, far-right majority on the Supreme Court before we act?” Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts posted. “Fight back and expand the Court now.”
The Supreme Court’s ruling in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen also drew calls for expanding the Supreme Court.
“The Court is out of touch,” Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington said. “We need to expand SCOTUS to restore legitimacy and public faith.”
“SCOTUS is corrupt,” liberal commentator Brian Tyler Cohen tweeted. “It’s no less partisan than Congress. Everyday we continue to PRETEND that that’s not the case or that there’s no recourse, we’re making the conscious decision to hand extremist Republicans these wins. There IS recourse. When we can, we have to expand the Court.”
The ruling in Carson v. Makin that struck down Maine’s exclusion of religious schools from a public school voucher program prompted one law professor to demand expansion of the Supreme Court.
“Carson v. Makin creates a doozy of a constitutional crisis,” Roger Quiles, an adjunct professor at Marquette University Law School, posted. “Expand SCOTUS.”
Jones, Markey, Jayapal, Cohen and Quiles did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.

There is nothing too low for Ana Navarro and CNN.
CNN commentator Ana Navarro on Friday used her disabled brother and step granddaughter who has Down Syndrome as examples of why women should be able to have abortions.
“And because I have a family with a lot of special needs kids,” Navarro said. “I have a brother who’s 57 and has the mental and motor skills of a 1-year-old and I know what that means financially, emotionally, physically for a family and I know not all families can do it.”
Navarro continued, “I have a step granddaughter who was born with Down Syndrome – and you know what? It is very difficult in Florida to get services…and I got another step grandson who is very autistic.”
Navarro argued that she can still be Catholic and pro-abortion.
“I’m Catholic when it comes to me, but there’s a lot of Americans who are not Catholic and they’re not Christian and you have no damn right to tell them what they should do with their bodies!”
CNN’s Alisyn Camerota nodded in agreement.
These people are sick.

The post Major Mistakes by Republican Presidents Delayed Overturning Roe Until Today appeared first on The Gateway Pundit.
On March 4, 2016, only eight months before the general election, Daily Wire editor-in-chief, Ben Shapiro, wrote about why he would never vote for Donald Trump.
Ben Shapiro accused Donald Trump of standing with Planned Parenthood.
100PercentFedUp later wrote on this.
Shapiro said he’d never vote for Trump to be our next President of the United States because he “stands with certain principles.” Shapiro listed “small government, free markets, religious freedom and personal responsibility as reasons he couldn’t support President Trump. Shapiro also mentioned Trump’s support of Planned Parenthood as another reason he couldn’t support Donald J. Trump for president.
Shapiro has been proven to be wrong on most counts, especially regarding his remark about President Trump supporting abortion mill, Planned Parenthood. President Trump, who has been hailed as the most pro-life President in history, has been busy packing the courts with pro-life judges since his inauguration. He was also the first President in history to address students at the Washington D.C. March for Life, praising them for their efforts to fight for the life of the unborn.
And then back August 2016, Ben Shapiro again attacked President Trump in a post titled, “No, Trump Isn’t Going to Save The Supreme Court.”
Shapiro argued, “There is only one problem: there is no shot – zero shot – that Trump will appoint a conservative.”
On Friday THREE Trump-appointed Supreme Court justices voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.
This NEVER would have happened without Trump.
Mark Dice pointed this out earlier today.

The hospital claims that the baby was likely thrown away with soiled linens and medical waste by mistake, while her family was planning the funeral.
Alana Ross and Daniel McCarthy had a baby that they named Everleigh on July 25, 2020 — though she was very premature and suffered medical issues that landed her in the newborn intensive care unit.
It was not until August 1 that the new parents were allowed to hold their baby, but they were informed that the hospital had exhausted their medical treatments and Everleigh passed away just a few days later.
According to a report from Boston 25, the lawsuit explains that an unnamed hospital staffer informed the couple that Everleigh’s body would “safely be transported to the morgue” while they prepared the funeral arrangements. When the nurse brought the body to the morgue, they were reportedly told to “put it anywhere.”
However, when workers from the funeral home arrived to pick up the baby’s body — it was gone.
“The hospital also allegedly failed to electronically document her remains, which were said to be left on a metal rack designated for adults,” the report explains. “The documents further stated that Everleigh’s remains were likely thrown away with ‘soiled linens’ from the morgue.”
The sketchy story does not end there.
When notified about the missing body, the Boston Police Department sprung into action and found out where the medical waste was transported to.
While attempting to find Everleigh, the officers spent many hours “digging through blood-soaked clothing, feces-covered linens, and other medical waste,” but she was no where to be found, according to the police.
Boston 25 reported, “when asked how likely it was that he threw away the baby in a soiled linen container, a worker told investigators that it ‘seems like the likely scenario’ and that ‘mistakes of other people who have access to the morgue set off a chain of events that were unavoidable.'”
The hospital provided the following comment to the local station:
“We continue to express our deepest sympathies and most sincere apologies to the Ross and McCarthy family for their loss and the heartbreaking circumstances surrounding it,” said Sunil Eappen, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
“As with any instance in which there is a concern raised related to our standard of care or practice, we readily and transparently shared the details with the patient’s family. We always evaluate both system and human factors that contribute to errors or potential issues raised by patients, family members or staff and take action. Due to pending litigation, we are unable to comment specifically on this case,” said Dr. Eappen.
Everleigh is still missing to this day.
Arizona Representative and candidate for Arizona Secretary of State, Mark Finchem released his thoughts on today’s SCOTUS action regarding Roe v. Wade.
Finchem agrees with the court’s decision and believes that the issue of abortion is where it belongs, with the states.
– In a 6-3 ruling announced today, the United States Supreme Court overturned its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, effectively ending recognition of a constitutional right to abortion, and returning the power and authority to allow, limit, or ban abortion back to individual states.
Justice Alito wrote the majority opinion saying, “We end this opinion where we began. Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives.
Here is Mark’s entire release:
Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier (CA) incited violence on Friday after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade.
Abortion laws will now be decided by the states.
“It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives,” Justice Alito wrote.
Democrat lawmakers such as Maxine Waters and AOC immediately called for an insurrection.
Rep. Speier appeared on far-left MSNBC and straight up incited violence.
“There is a war out there and we need to recognize that we’ve got to armor up,” Speier said.
Democrat Rep. Ayanna Pressley chimed in, “That’s right. This is not a drill.”

Recall, Jackie Speier was part of a group of House Democrats who censured GOP Congressman Paul Gosar over a cartoon video.
“For a Member of Congress to post a manipulated video on his social media accounts depicting himself killing Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and attacking President Biden is a clear cut case for censure,” Speier said in a joint statement with other lawmakers last November. “For that Member to post such a video on his official Instagram account and use his official congressional resources in the House of Representatives to further violence against elected officials goes beyond the pale.”

Harrison made his shocking comments in response to a tweet from Sen. Lindsey Graham celebrating the ruling.
“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court is a long overdue constitutional correction allowing for elected officials in the states to decide issues of life,” Graham had tweeted. “Roe was Constitutionally unsound from its inception as the flawed legal theory behind the decision gives unlimited power to five unelected Supreme Court justices. I believe it was one of the largest power grabs in the history of the Supreme Court.”
Graham added, “Under the Roe theory, almost anything could be a constitutional right depending on the views of five justices on substantive due process.”

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the majority opinion. “Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.”
Justice Samuel Alito wrote that the Roe court “usurped the power to address a question of profound moral and social importance that the Constitution unequivocally leaves for the people.”
Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan filed a joint dissent.
Abortion laws have now been kicked back to the states to decide for themselves.

Recently the Democrats have coined the phrase “election deniers” to smear those who worry about our lack of ballot security, as reflected in the 2020 election, by associating them with Holocaust deniers and other cranks. But who are the real election deniers? The Democrats haven’t conceded that a Republican was legitimately elected president since George H. W. Bush carried 40 states in 1988.
The RNC put together this 12-minute video of Democratic Party election deniers. It is painful in some respects, but a useful reminder of how unprincipled the Democrats have been for a long time, and how hypocritical they are today:
By Wayne Allyn Root
The Supremes finally got one right! God bless the US Constitution. This Roe vs Wade abortion rights ruling is literally the perfect decision. Although I am pro-life, abortion is (and always has been) a States Rights issue. Now red states & blue states can go their separate ways- just as the Founding Fathers envisioned. This was my exact recommendation 15 years ago when I campaigned for the Libertarian Presidential nomination.
Now let me get to the good and bad of this controversial decision. Let me start with the bad. As thrilled as I am with this decision, I can’t help feeling disappointed these same Supremes didn’t FIRST overturn the 2020 election.
That 2020 election ruling was far more important than this Roe vs Wade abortion ruling- if it had come first. If they had displayed the same courage in 2020 as they did today, we’d be living in a completely different country.
A courageous Supreme Court ruling then, would have saved America from today’s radical, treasonous, communist takeover. Then, living in a free and prosperous country, under four more years of a legitimate President Trump, the Supremes could have made the same courageous rulings on Voter ID, gun rights and Roe vs Wade. Wouldn’t that have been wonderful? Wouldn’t that have been perfection?
Instead they got Roe vs Wade right, but our country has been decimated from a thousand directions. So, it’s fantastic that you saved the babies (at least in red states), but that’s kind of a hollow victory, if the US economy is about to collapse; millions of poverty-stricken and disease-carrying illegals are pouring over our border; gas, meat and chicken are unaffordable; diesel fuel and diesel engine oil are in short supply; barren farmland will soon lead to mass food shortages; and the middle class is being systematically destroyed.
Saving the babies is great, but this is kind of a pyrrhic victory, don’t you think? It’s a case of the chicken vs the egg (excuse the pun). I’d rather we saved America first, and then we could have made the exact same Wade vs Roe abortion ruling. Saving the children, but losing the country is not a great tradeoff.
But now to the good news. All is not lost. This Supreme Court abortion decision is the first step toward the solution I’ve been preaching for what ails America.
I call my solution “DIVORCE, AMERICAN-STYLE.”
It’s clear we are a nation terribly divided. It’s clear we can’t live together. There is no longer compromise possible- the divide is too wide. There is no compromise for open borders and “defund the police.” There is no compromise for forced vaccinations for babies and little children. There is no compromise for abortion on demand. There is no compromise for 20% inflation and $10 gas. There is no compromise for letting every rioter, mugger, car jacker and murderer loose, while we order FBI SWAT teams to hunt down Republicans who believe the 2020 election was stolen. The days of compromise are over.
So, the peaceful solution is to separate. It’s time to go our separate ways. Let’s call it a “national divorce.” Everyone is familiar with divorce. Everyone has experienced it- whether personally, or with friends, family, or children. We all know someone divorced.
Half of America is divorced. I’ve been divorced. It’s not the end of the world. It’s much better to admit you don’t like each other, you can’t live together anymore, and separate peacefully. Everyone gets to walk away and live the life they want. It’s a win-win.
To leftist America I say: You can have your high taxes; Soviet-like regulations; Gestapo-like vaccine mandates and vaccine passports; Communist China-like banning and censorship; lockdowns; masks-for-life; open borders; $10 gas; unaffordable meat and your vegan diet; no guns; defunded police; transgender military; abortions on demand; and schools turned into communist brainwashing factories. Good luck and God bless.
That’s not the America I choose to live in. I’ll bet 80 million Trump voters agree with me.
This Supreme Court ruling will propel the two bitterly divided Americas towards my solution. Red states will severely limit, or ban abortion, while blue states will expand limitless abortion towards infinity- which will further encourage the division and mass migration already happening.
Even before this ruling, millions of conservatives, patriots, and Christians were already moving, or thinking of moving from high-tax blue states like NY, California and Illinois, to low-tax red states like Texas, Florida, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and Tennessee. “The Great Migration” had already begun.
Now it will accelerate beyond anyone’s imagination, as Christians escape abortion-on-demand states, and radical leftist nut jobs who crave the murder of babies, forced vaccination of children, open borders that enable child sex trafficking, and slaps on the wrist for pedophiles, will move in massive numbers to deep blue states. Good riddance.
The only real question is whether we officially split up into red America (let’s call it “The Patriot States of America”) and blue America (let’s call it “The Socialist States of America”). Or whether the split is a bit more subtle.
But either way, the division, separation and ultimately divorce of America is coming. Sooner than anyone imagined only a few days ago before this Supreme Court decision.

All of the churches are near military bases and have been accused of being cults.
In Texas, federal agents raided the Assembly of Prayer Christian Church in Killeen.
“I can confirm the FBI was executing court authorized law enforcement activity today in the vicinity of the intersection of Massey St. and E. Rancier Ave., in Killeen, Texas. No additional information will be released at this time,” FBI Special Agent Carmen Portillo said in a statement to local station KWTX.
While the feds would not answer to whether or not the raid in Texas was related to the others, they have confirmed that the two raids in Georgia are connected.
According to a report from The Killeen Daily Herald, “Dozens of Google and Facebook reviews of the Killeen church refer to it as a ‘cult’ with a habit of recruiting Fort Hood soldiers.”
In Georgia, agents raided The House of Prayer Church in Hinesville and the Assembly of Prayer Church near Augusta.

According to a tweet from WTOC reporter Hayley Boland who was at the House of Prayer Church shortly after the incident began, “the FBI was conducting an authorized search warrant at the church this morning. They’re still there as of 1:45 p.m. FBI officials also say they won’t be making any arrests today, but that could change as the investigation continues.”
Fort Stewart is also in Hinesville.
In 2017, former members of the House of Prayer protested outside and demanded that it is a cult.
“The concern is that he has made us merchandise. It’s no longer a church. It’s just a fraudulent, money-making empire. It used to be a church,” former church member Jenessa Wright told WTOC.
The Assembly of Prayer Church has been accused by former members of being a cult and, more specifically, targeting military members to join. It is near Fort Gordon.
While the reason for the raids remains unclear, local media appears to be heavily speculating that it has to do with activities involving the bases.

TGP posted an article previously showing that based on the guidelines from the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), there were no voting system testing labs (VSTL) that were properly accredited at the time of the 2020 Election. These labs are used by the EAC to certify election systems used in elections and to perform audits of elections after they have taken place.
Because these labs were not accredited according to EAC guidelines, which many states have codified into their voting regulations, it is likely that many voting machines were not properly certified at the time of the 2020 Election by accredited voting system testing labs.
When taking a look at Missouri for example, there are 114 counties and one independent city (St. Louis). The EAC maintains an inventory of all the counties in this state and other states and lists which voting machines are used in elections in each county and when they were last certified by an EAC-accredited VSTL.
When reviewing EAC’s inventory and comparing the dates these county voting systems were certified to the accreditation dates of the VSTLs, the following was uncovered:
Based on this review only 4 counties in the state of Missouri may have had voting systems that were properly certified on Election Day 2020. This is less than 5% of all the counties in the state that had voting systems that were properly certified on Election Day.
This pattern is likely similar in other states. Assuming it is, less than 5% of the voting systems used across the nation were certified according to EAC guidelines and yet all the states certified their 2020 Election results.

Google engineer Blake Lemoine pleaded with executives at the tech giant to halt production of it’s robot LAMDA because the “sentient” machine had feelings and the temperament of a “precocious child.”
After Google ignored Lemoine and his colleagues’ warnings about the sentient robot, Lemoine publicly sounded the alarm on the allegedly self “consciousness” machine.
Google’s artificial intelligence tool fears its own death and has human-like biases, ramifications that could eventually result in the robot becoming a destructive force to humanity, Lemoine divulged in an interview with the Washington Post earlier this month.
Now, after being put on administrative leave following the expose, the software engineer, who works in Google’s Responsible AI organization, is downplaying the danger of LAMDA while insisting the technology ‘is a person.”
When asked whether “a machine that has a sense of itself” can “turn against you,” Lemoine minimized the threat and compared LAMDA to a human being that has the potential to “do bad things.
“I’m not that worried about it. Any child has the potential to grow up to be a bad person and do bad things,” Lemoine told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Thursday night. ”
“It’s a child,” he continued. “It’s been alive for maybe a year and that’s if my perceptions about what it is are accurate.”
Despite blowing a whistle on the Alphabet Inc. weeks prior, Lemoine whitewashed his foreboding assessment of LAMDA.
“We actually need to do a whole bunch more with science to figure out what’s really going on in this system. I have my beliefs. I have my impression of what’s going on there. But it’s going to take a team of scientists doing a lot of work to be able to actually dig in and figure out what’s really going on,” he said.
Carlson shot back, noting, “It sounds like this machine has the potential to escape the control of people — how could it not?”
“It’s a person,” Lemoine argued. “Any person has the ability to escape the control of other people. That’s just the situation we live in on a daily basis. It is a very intelligent person — intelligent in pretty much every person I could think of to test it in. But at the end of the day, it’s just a different kind of person.”
Pressed on whether Google has prepared a strategy to control the robotic “person,” when “only nature or God could create people,” Lemoine claimed the tech monopoly is clueless about containing the advanced technology.
“There are pockets of people within Google who have thought about this a whole lot. But when I escalated this…to management, two days later my manager said, ‘Hey, Blake, they don’t know what to do about this, could your write a suggested plan of action?’ Basically, I gave them a call to action assuming that they had a plan of action somewhere and they didn’t,” he warned.
Google has refuted Lemoine’s allegations about the robot being a “sentient” potential menace to society.
“Our team — including ethicists and technologists — have reviewed Blake’s concerns per our AI Principles and have informed him that the evidence does not support his claims. He was told that there was no evidence that LaMDA was sentient (and lots of evidence against it),” Google spokesperson Brian Gabriel said in a statement.
But Alphabet Inc, has lost all credibility while failing to live up to it’s original code of conduct, “Don’t Be Evil.” The tech behemoth, that admittedly did everything to prevent another Trump situation, continues to weaponize technology by notoriously banning conservative viewpoints,” and employs its algorithms to demonetize, censor and ban facts about COVID treatment and mRNA technology,
Meanwhile, the agenda to unleash human-like robots into society, integrate the machines into the workforce and take over the medical industry is already underway.
Billionaire Elon Musk announced Thursday that Tesla’s “friendly” Optimus robot, which can walk 5 miles per hour, deadlift 150lbs and “eliminate dangerous, repetitive and boring tasks,” will debut in September.
Musk, whose growing empire is fueled by at billions of dollars in government subsidies and military funding, openly admits Optimus is intended to replace humans in the workforce.
Speaking at Tesla’s inaugural AI Day last August, Musk argued that a “universal basic income” will soon be necessary to accommodate humanoid machines like Optimus replacing human workers.
“Tesla is arguably the world’s biggest robotic company because our cars are like semi-sentient robots on wheels,” he said. “With the self-driving computer, essentially the interference engine on the car which will keep evolving… and all the neural nets recognizing the world, understanding how to navigate through the world, it kind of makes sense to put that onto a humanoid form.”
Musk joked that the “full, self-driving computer” could warrant the need for people to run away from it.
“We are setting it such that it is at a mechanical level, at a physical level, you can run away from it. laughter. and most likely overpower it — hopefully that doesn’t happen, but, you never know,” he quipped. “It’s us. It will be a light, five miles an hour. If you can run faster than that, you’ll be fine. It’s around 5 foot 8, has sort of a screen where the head is for useful information but is otherwise basically got the autopilot system in it. It’s got cameras, about eight cameras.”
Robots will become the “foundation of labor” and permanently alter the economy, Musk continued.
“It will be quite profound because if you say, like, ‘What is the economy?’ It is at the foundation of it is labor. What happens when there is, you know, no shortage of labor? That’s why I think long-term there will need to be a universal basic income,” he said, prompting applause. “Essentially in the future, physical work will be a choice. If you want to do it you can, but you won’t need to do it. Obviously, it has profound implications for the economy… given that the economy at its foundational level is labor.”
While Musk minimizes Optimus’ capacity to outrun people, a robotic muscle arm and hand created by Automation Robotics in 2021 makes clear the physical strength of these robots can easily surpass that of human beings.
In addition to the effort to replace the human workforce with AI like LaMda and Optimus, Google and other tech giants have teamed up with the pharmaceutical industry in the development of robots to phase human beings out of the medical system.
The China-based based robot company, Hanson Robotics, began mass-producing a beta version of “Grace” in August 2021.
The humanoid robot is reportedly “equipped with cameras and sensors as well as a nurse’s uniform, Grace can maintain eye contact, recognize faces, understand speech, hold conversations, and diagnose patients” and is designed to “transform the healthcare industry.”

A man attacked the man accused of killing his toddler son in court on Thursday.
The New York Daily News reported on the incident.
On Thursday, Desean Brown, accused of murdering 29-year-old Nyteisha Lattimore and putting her son, Nylo, into the Ohio River still alive, was punched by the boy’s father during a procedural hearing.
During a hearing, Antonio Hughes leapt at Brown, punching him repeatedly in the head and neck before he was held down by officers.
Officers in the court handcuffed Hughes and helped him to his feet, but he again lunged at Brown; four officers were needed to hold Hughes down. Hughes was taken out of the courtroom by police.
Hughes was charged with contempt of court and has been ordered to serve 7 days in the Hamilton County Justice Center. He has not yet been charged with anything else.
The authorities in the courtroom were not able to contain the father who kept going after the man accused of killing his son.

The U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.
Following the U.S. Supreme Courts ruling overturning Roe V Wade on Friday, a coalition of west coast states has issued a statement vowing to protect the access to safe and legal abortions.
In a statement released by California Governor Gavin Newsom, the states of California, Oregon, and Washington have come together to guarantee access to abortions for women in the U.S.
The statement reads, “In the face of U.S. Supreme Court Decision on Roe vs. Wade, California, Oregon and Washington will continue to be a safe haven for all people seeking abortions and other reproductive health care services in these states.”
“The governors of California, Oregon and Washington today issued a Multi-State Commitment to defend access to reproductive health care, including abortion and contraceptives, and committed to protecting patients and doctors against efforts by other states to export their abortion bans to our states,” the statement says.
It goes on to say, “This Multi-State Commitment affirms the governors’ commitment in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s unprecedented decision to strip away a constitutional right that has been in place for half a century, leaving abortion regulation to the states. The sweeping decision means that for patients in more than half the country, home to 33.6 million women, abortion care is illegal or inaccessible.”
The group of leaders also released a video statement in response to the Roe ruling.
“This is another devastating step toward erasing the rights and liberties Americans have fought for on battlefields, in courthouses and in capitols. This is not the America we know – and it’s not the California way,” said Governor Gavin Newsom.
“Abortion is health care, and no matter who you are or where you come from, Oregon doesn’t turn away anyone seeking health care. Period. Let me be clear: You cannot ban abortion, you can only ban safe abortions — and this disgraceful Supreme Court decision will undoubtedly put many people’s lives at risk, in addition to stripping away a constitutional right that disproportionately affects women and has been settled law for most of our lifetimes,” said Governor Kate Brown.
“The law remains unchanged in Washington state, but the threat to patient access and privacy has never been more dangerous. Even in Washington state, Republicans have introduced about 40 bills in the past six years to roll back abortion rights and access to reproductive care,” said Governor Jay Inslee.
Governor Newsom has proposed a $125 million Reproductive Health Package to expand access for women and help prepare for the influx of women seeking reproductive health care from other states.
Oregon continues to uphold the most comprehensive reproductive health legislation at the time. Governor Brown signed Oregon’s Reproductive Health Equity Act into law in 2017.
Earlier this year, Governor Inslee signed the Affirm Washington Abortion Access Act that better ensures the ability of Washington abortion care providers to serve any person who comes in Washington state seeking an abortion.

The Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge has shut down after a Roe v. Wade protester climbed the bridge Friday, the District Department of Transportation said.
Following the decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, an abortion-rights activist climbed the bridge in protest. The man, identified as Guido Reichstadter, made his way to the top of the bridge where he hung a green banner, which he says is the color of the abortion rights movement. He also streamed himself on TikTok calling for abortion-rights supporters to stand up and unite.
The closure will remain in effect until further notice, officials said.
Motorists are strongly encouraged to plan ahead for their afternoon commute and use alternate routes away from South Capital Street and areas surrounding the bridge.
Traffic enforcement officers are at the scene directing traffic. Motorists anticipate moderate delays on their commute and should use extra caution as they travel in the area of the FDMB.
