    “Still want to claim Davy that JuanP hijacks your nick and not the mobster?”

    Come on clogged, this is what JuanP wants. He wants more than anything to fool people. He tries so hard not be JuanP. He has fooled you before. MOB, might do it sometimes. I have seen him steal your handle but I have seen JuanP do it too. These pathetic losers leave signatures.

    “Boeing is almost forced to come up with a complete redesign of the Max (and dump the name).”

    More fraudulence by clogged. This is what clowns do with empty references. They say something then act like the reference says it too. Clogged and MOB do it all the time. Clogged, where in your reference does it say that? It doesn’t. The likely problem with the max is software. You want to brag about Airbus but why don’t you tell us about the 380 and how well that huge investment went. The max will be up and running. It is a well made plane. The problem is with the complicated nature of software these days. They are trying to AI these planes too much.

    Suspected New Zealand mosque shooter hoped to spark civil war in US

    The leftist-liberal Dutch MSM de Volkskrant has no choice, it needs to address the rise of the “alt-right” throughout the western world:

    https://www.volkskrant.nl/nieuws-achtergrond/aanslagpleger-nieuw-zeeland-voegt-daad-bij-het-extreem-rechtse-woord~b2e97a74/

    Chrome > right click > translate English

    The newspaper, that, despite its own name, doesn’t believe in the “Dutch volk”, as it is an obedient follower of the interests of the US empire, where the holocaust is the most important event in world history (hint, hint, should give you a clear indication whose interests the western MSM are promoting).

    As always, the newspaper condemns the views of this Brenton Tarrant chap about “replacement of white people world-wide” as a “conspiracy theory”, where the reality can be observed in every larger western town. But lefties have no relationship with reality, only with sacro-sanct One World egalitarian ideology.

    If you accept the simple observation that “right-wing resistance” (growth of populist parties, internet chatter, Breivik-Tarrant actions) is proportional with the magnitude of demographic change, you can only conclude that the western leftist-globalist agenda is going to fail. The smarter leftist minds already know:

    https://documents1940.wordpress.com/2019/01/07/the-good-news-zog-is-dying/

    And for those who are convinced that human society can only follow the second law of thermodynamics, namely of ever increasing mixing and rising entropy, only need to look at examples of Ruanda, Yugoslavia, USSR, Iraq, Syria, Donbass, etc., etc., to verify that in the modern world identity very well exists.

    Besides, the second law of thermodynamics only applies to dead matter, not to humans. The law says that if you have a box, consisting of two halves with red balls in one and blue balls in the other half, if you remove the separation and shake the box, the red and blue balls will mix. The same should apply to Christians and Muslims, right? Second law of thermodynamics proven.

    Not so fast.

    Humans are the unique in that they can fight the second law of thermodynamics. Give a box with mixed blue and red balls to a child and it will reinstall the separation and separate the blue from the red balls. The little fascist. Jigsaw-puzzle likewise.

    The very fact that a planet with algae only, can morph into modern society as we know it, is the best proof that humans can lower entropy (with the entropy of the infinite universe increasing indeed with a larger amount, but who cares. On a human scale, energy in the universe is infinite anyway).

    In other words, the leftist egalitarian-Marxist agenda, as promoted by the US and its (((deep state))), is NOT inevitable. What is far more likely is a future of “ethnic cleansing planet”.

    The only real reason why Britain could dominate the 19th and America the 20th century, is not some “racist” idea of Anglo superiority, but the accidental first acquisition of new, spectacular energy sources: steam+coal (UK) and oil (USA). THAT gave UK/USA societies a significant head start over the others, but that comparative advantage has now evaporated.

    The Five Eyes would love to continue their dominance into the 21st century, they meanwhile consider it a birthright, but they won’t. The others (notably Europe, China) have caught up and are even in the lead with yet another new energy source: renewable energy. The geopolitical consequences are predictable. Bye-bye Anglo-supremacy.

    “Artificial Intelligence Or Real Stupidity?”
    https://tinyurl.com/y58cghqt Authored by David Robertson via RealInvestmentAdvice.com

    “It’s hard to go anywhere these days without coming across some mention of artificial intelligence (AI). You hear about it, you read about it and it’s hard to find a presentation deck (on any subject) that doesn’t mention it. There is no doubt there is a lot of hype around the subject.”

    “Take for example, the concept of artificial general intelligence (AGI). This is closely related to the notion of the “Singularity” which is the point at which artificial intelligence matches that of humans – on its path to massively exceeding human intelligence. The idea has captured people’s concerns about AI that include massive job losses, killer drones, and a host of other dramatic manifestations. AI’s leading researchers have very different views; as a group they are completely unperturbed by AGI.
    Geoffrey Hinton, Professor of computer science at the University of Toronto and Vice president and engineering fellow at Google said, “If your question is, ‘When are we going to get a Commander Data [from the Star Trek TV series]’, then I don’t think that’s how things are going to develop. I don’t think we’re going to get single, general-purpose things like that.”
    Yoshua Bengio, Professor of computer science and operations research at the University of Montreal, tells us that, “There are some really hard problems in front of us and that we are far from human-level AI.” He adds, “we are all excited because we have made a lot of progress on climbing the hill, but as we approach the top of the hill, we can start to see a series of other hills rising in front of us.”
    Barbara Grosz, Professor of natural sciences at Harvard University, expressed her opinion, “I don’t think AGI is the right direction to go”. She argues that because the pursuit of AGI (and dealing with its consequences) are so far out into the future that they serve as “a distraction”

    “To take full advantage of this collaboration, companies must understand how humans can most effectively augment machines, how machines can enhance what humans do best, and how to redesign business processes to support the partnership.” This takes a lot of work that is well beyond just dumping an AI system into a pre-existing work environment. The insights from leading AI researchers combined with the realities of real-world applications provide some useful implications. One is that AI is a double-edged sword: The hype can cause distraction and misallocation, but the capabilities are too important to ignore.”

    “Our nation is being preyed upon by a military industrial complex that is propped up by war profiteers, corrupt politicians and foreign governments.”

    “As it now stands, the U.S. government is operating in the negative on every front: it’s spending far more than what it makes (and takes from the American taxpayers) and it is borrowing heavily (from foreign governments and Social Security) to keep the government operating and keep funding its endless wars abroad.”

    “The nation’s educational system is pathetic (young people are learning nothing about their freedoms or their government). The infrastructure is antiquated and growing more outdated by the day. The health system is overpriced and inaccessible to those who need it most. The supposedly robust economy is belied by the daily reports of businesses shuttering storefronts and declaring bankruptcy. And our so-called representative government is a sham.”

    “The American military-industrial complex has erected an empire unsurpassed in history in its breadth and scope, one dedicated to conducting perpetual warfare throughout the earth.”

    http://tinyurl.com/yxgocfgu

    “The Pentagon has requested a record-breaking $718 billion in its fiscal 2020 budget, a 5% increase over what Congress allocated for fiscal 2019”

    “The $718 billion budget includes a base budget of $544.5 billion, $9.2 billion for the border wall and $164 billion for foreign wars.”

    “The funding includes $2.6 billion for hypersonic missiles that “complicate adversaries’ detection and defense,” another $3.7 billion for unmanned and even autonomous systems suitable for “contested regions. ”

    “Hypersonic missiles cruise at Mach 5 or faster, or about five times faster than the speed of sound. As of 2019, the Pentagon doesn’t have missile defense systems that can stop a hypersonic attack nor has hypersonic missiles that are deployed with forces.”

    “On the other hand, Russia last year sent its hypersonic weapons into series production and has already deployed missiles to its forces stationed around the country.”

In the past half century or so we’ve experienced quite a few disruptions to the system, exposing deep rifts that were plastered over more than a few times in the past. America is nothing if not the land of skeletons in closets and the more that people are told what they may or may not consider by their betters, the more threadbare the excuses become. Everything has a reckoning, it is the immutable force of creation that established the physics of all things.”

    “We are in the midst of a very, very dangerous time. Anyone who still believes in the power of the vote to reconcile our differences has not been paying attention. The time for campaigning things away has come and gone and there will never- until this conflict settles matters in flesh and blood- be a coming together of one side with the other.

    Deal between Salvini and Farage?

    Italy could refuse extension of article 50 and de facto push Britain out of the EU, in coordination with hardcore Brexiteers:

    http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/brexit-scheitert-die-verschiebung-an-den-italienern-a-1258250.html

    The only way for Britain to avoid a no-deal Brexit in that case would be to cancel Brexit altogether.

    This is an unexpected turn of events. Italy does indeed have that power, since no-deal is default and in the EU decisions needs to be taken uniformly.

    Italy is the most pro-Russian country in Europe and Salvini has shown repeatedly he understands the JQ:

    “May And Merkel Fiddle While Their Unions Burn”

    “When it was reported by John Petley of the Bruges Group that German Chancellor Angela Merkel had, in effect, written the Brexit withdrawal agreement Theresa May has now twice had turned down by her parliament it should have come as no shock to anyone closely following the Brexit drama. Uncorroborated? Sure. Most likely true. Of course. The European Union doesn’t want Brexit to happen. And if it were to happen it would only be acceptable to them if it looks like the deal Mrs. May put before the House of Commons twice only to be rebuked by historic margins.”

    “Make no mistake, the horror show would mostly fall on Germany – whose banking system, already teetering on collapse thanks to other rifts forming within the currency bloc – and export-driven economy would suffer from the Brits having more control over the exchange rate of the pound versus the euro. A lower pound would be the first result of a no-deal Brexit. Good for long-suffering British manufacturing and bad for Germany’s, since the UK is Germany’s biggest export market. Economically and philosophically, no-deal is the best deal for the UK But don’t tell that to the MP’s who are scared to death of it. But what’s most important about all of this is that it is all just a symptom of a much deeper problem, the unwieldy nature of the European Union itself. Germany and the elites who have pushed this project, the unelected financiers I like to call The Davos Crowd, are dead set against anything that obstructs its completion. The wave of nationalist political fervor racing across the continent is, however, a consequence of their trying to form a political and fiscal union that far exceeds the original mandate sold to voters when they joined.”

    “Merkel, Juncker et.al. all saw the divisions within the Labour and Conservative parties that have resulted from their planning and thought them to be assets. But they aren’t. Maybe in the short-run it will get them what they want, another moment to kick the can down the road a little bit further. But in the long-run all it is doing is setting up for another round of Brexit in the future with a much less plastic set of circumstances. Because, as I said earlier, they have miscalculated. The British people are fed up with them and with their own government.”

    “If an extension is approved by the EU and given to the Brits, Euroskeptics will go from commanding a projected 32-33% of a 705 seat European Parliament to possibly 35-36% of a larger one that includes the Brits. Because if Brexit is delayed and betrayed do you think Remainers will be elected en masse? Or do you think Farage et.al. will not storm into Brussels mad as hell? Merkel and May may have won this battle using their useful idiots like Anna Soubry and Ian Blackford but they will lose the war as the rest of Europe comes to terms with being frog-marched towards a future they neither want, signed up for or are willing to pay for anymore. No wonder the Yellow Vests keep showing up every weekend.”
