The Brave New World of Artificial Intelligence – “As a journalist and commentator, I have closely followed the development of OpenAI, the artificial intelligence research lab founded by Elon Musk, Sam Altman, and other prominent figures in the tech industry. While I am excited about the potential of AI to revolutionize various industries and improve our lives in countless ways, I also have serious concerns about the implications of this powerful technology. If you aren’t worried yet, I’ll let you in on a little secret: The first three paragraphs of this column were written by ChatGPT, the chatbot created by OpenAI. You can add “columnist” to the list of jobs threatened by this new technology, and if you think there is anything human that isn’t threatened with irrelevance in the next five to 10 years, I suggest you talk to Mr. Neanderthal about how relevant he feels 40,000 years after the arrival of Cro-Magnon man.” – Frank Miele
This Should Alarm You – “It could change everything. ChatGPT: Why should you care? Why is this important?” – Paul Joseph Watson
NEWS ( BALLOON EDITION ) 🎈 🎈 🎈
Why Do I Profoundly Shun the Labels ‘Libertarian’ and ‘libertarian? – “Regardless of what one calls himself, or what label is attached to his name, he will be attacked, criticized, cursed, threatened at some point in time, or even praised. Maybe the detrimental side of this is just human nature, but if so, it usually involves ignorance, or just ill intent. I know that I am an anarchist, but that term has been brutally bastardized, and the real meaning purposely changed over time by state forces who have altered the definition to mean its exact opposite. Anarchy simply means, “without rule” or “without rulers.” It has absolutely nothing to do with chaos, dystopia, violence, rioting, or lawlessness, but few today have any concept of actual language.” – Gary D. Barnett
A Warning to Americans From Across the Pond: Don’t Take Your Free Speech Rights for Granted – “Freedom of speech is functionally extinct in Britain. Americans should learn the lessons from our experience.” – Harrison Griffiths
Subsidy Junkies – “The problem with getting hooked on something – whether it’s booze, or subsidies – is that it’s hard to quit once you are. Just ask the car industry. It has become dependent on subsidies – in the form of “tax breaks” – to get people to “buy” electric vehicles; the “buying” in air-fingers-quotation marks to mock the fact that when someone else is paying, you’re not really buying.” – Gary Peters
Chinese Spy Balloons: Potential Purposes For The High Altitude Invasion – “First, the immediate question is why the Biden Administration has not destroyed the balloon? Why not shoot first and ask questions later? Well, Biden’s silence on this issue suggests he either has no answers or that the truth will make the American public very angry. The most likely reason it has not been shot down is because it is very difficult or impossible to shoot down.” – Brandon Smith 🎈
Communist Doomsday Balloon Nonsense – “The Chinese balloon is yet another distraction. It’s remarkable how easy it is to rile up the American public. The latest bit of theatrics centers around a “communist” balloon that is either a spy device or a weather balloon that has drifted off course. Either way, this thing isn’t some sort of major threat to America. Even so, it can be used as clickbait.” – Kurt Nimmo 🎈
With Second CCP Spy Balloon Confirmed, Theories Emerge About Their Evil Intentions – “Some of the theories are just crazy enough to be true.” – JD Rucker 🎈
US Surrounds China With War Machinery While Freaking Out About Balloons – “In what Austin journalist Christopher Hooks has called “one of the stupidest news cycles in living memory,” the entire American political/media class is having an existential meltdown over what the Pentagon claims is a Chinese spy balloon detected in US airspace on Thursday. Secretary of State Antony Blinken cancelled his scheduled diplomatic visit to China after the detection of the balloon. The mass media have been covering the story with breathless excitement. China hawk pundits have been pounding the war drums all day on any platform they can get to and accusing the Biden administration of not responding aggressively enough to the incident.” – Caitlin Johnstone 🎈
The Chinese Balloon Incident Could Decisively Shift China’s & The US’ “Deep State” Dynamics – “Chinese Balloon Or Black Swan? The Chinese weather balloon incident might go down in history as a game-changer in terms of how decisively it could shift China’s and the US’ respective “deep state” dynamics. ” – Andrew Korybko 🎈
That Didn’t Age Well! Read The Most Clownish Takes About The Laptop Hunter Biden Admits Was His – “Hunter Biden admitted this week that the infamous laptop made public in the fall of 2020 was his. Here are the statements that aged the worst.” – Tristan Justice
Classified Documents Everywhere, But Only One Hunter Biden – “Leaving Washington with classified documents must be a tradition for outgoing presidents and vice presidents. Sensitive government papers have now been found in the private homes and offices of Joe Biden, Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Maybe every president going back for decades has taken documents he shouldn’t have. But only one has a crooked son who could have easily accessed those documents and used them to enrich himself and his corrupt family.” – I & I Editorial Board

The CIA’s Deadly Drug-Running Operation – “Don’t count on the CIA ever being investigated or brought to justice by Congress or the Justice Department for this. As we all know, the CIA is way too powerful for that. There is no way that any member of Congress, any U.S. Attorney, or any federal judge in the land is going to go after the CIA. In fact, no president since John Kennedy has dared to take on the CIA, and we all know what happened to him.” – Jacob G. Hornberger
Your Phone Runs on Cobalt From DR Congo – “The chances of your phone’s battery being made using cobalt from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are very high. The use of child labor in the mining of cobalt in DRC is well documented, with the U.S. Department of Labor estimating that 40,000 children, some as young as 6 years old, work in the mines there.” – Martin Armstrong
January’s ‘too good to be true’ jobs report was based on ‘adjustments’ – Thomas Lifson – AS MOST PEOPLE IN THE KNOW SAID YESTERDAY AS WELL!!!!
Is it Time to Drop the “L” in the BLS? – “By all measures, the latest job report absolutely blasted past expectations with one of the biggest upside surprises in recent memory. That is one heck of a jobs report! Now take a step back. Not a day goes by without new layoffs being announced. Conditions are tightening across the board in nearly every industry. 90% of CEOs are bracing for a recession The yield curve has been inverted for months Money Supply has seen the biggest collapse in history These two sets of data points are not a little different. They are at polar ends of the spectrum. How can anyone look at the environment and then take such a job report seriously?” – Schiff Gold
It Was a “Wow! Wow!” Bow-Wow Dog of a Doozy Week for Jobs! – David Haggith
A tale of two worlds – “In the war between the western alliance and the Asian axis, the media focus is on the Ukrainian battlefield. The real war is in currencies, with Russia capable of destroying the dollar. So far, Putin’s actions have been relatively passive. But already, both Russia and China have accumulated enough gold to implement gold standards. It is now overwhelmingly in their interests to do so.” – Alasdair Macleod

Confessions of a Newly Minted Ham – “How I decided to jump into ham radio I’d been thinking about this for a while, mostly due to reading articles here on tOP and hanging out in the preppersphere. Our First World society relies heavily on technology. All it takes is a good hurricane, tornado, or attack on the local cell phone network to take that stuff out, leaving us without a reliable means to communicate. How do we contact our family? How do we gain the information we need in order to survive, not only immediately post-collapse but after death has cleared out the suckers? ” – Amy Allen
