We are now in the first phase of near total economic meltdown. The Federal Reserve raising interest rates has now unleashed a torrent of economic concern related to the entire global economy. The news isn’t good to be blunt about it. The “system” as I like to call it is totally based on debt. The fact the debt, commercial, government and private citizen, is now totally beyond the possibility of being repaid is finally starting to dent the Pollyanna brain of the Sheeple. Further, the geo political situation is under stress on multiple fronts. We have the Iranian and Saudi Arabian free for all headed towards the cliff. We have China devaluing their currency, with an economic system based on debt, fraud, corruption and incompetence. We also have Kim Jong engaged in yet another provocation designed to freak everybody else out. And finally, we have Europe being overwhelmed under a horde of Muslim rapists and sexual predators.
Of course, my favorite Democrat rabble rouser, Bernie Sanders, certainly set off a firestorm by suggesting the Wall Street Whores might actually be held accountable. Oh my, I can see brokers lining up next to the 50 floor windows and scoping things out.
Here is the link to the managed economic news designed to keep the sheeple in line.
Here is the link to North Korea and its usual “lake of fire” version 15 speech.I read a book on North Korea which confirmed my opinion that yes, Virginia Kim Jong really is that crazy. After all, any leader who can order one of his senior military people to be shot to pieces using a 40 mm anti-aircraft gun is, at least in my book, certifiably crazy. I also remember a quote from one of the US officers at Yalta. He said the real difference between Roseveldt, Churchill and Stalin was Stalin was the only one who could order any officer who gave a bad presentation taken out and shot. Kim Jong falls into that category.
Next, we have the ongoing collapse of our border security with Mexico. Apparently, Obama failed to mention an unknown number of Militant Islamic true believers are openly pouring into the USA.
Here is the link to that story.
“Military age men” at San Diego’s southern border
“Credible threat” posed by unknown Afghans and Pakistanis
By Marty Graham, Jan. 5, 2016
Among the several dozen Pakistani and Afghan men who have entered the U.S. illegally, coming into San Diego from Tijuana, two were found to have ties to terrorist groups, according to a letter sent by U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter to the Department of Homeland Security.
Letter from Duncan Hunter
Muhammad Azeem and Muktar Ahmad, both in their 20s, surrendered to U.S. Border Patrol agents in September, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. One was listed on the Terrorist Screening Database for “associations with a known or suspected terrorist. The other was a positive match for derogatory information in an alternative database,” according to Hunter’s letter.
Azeem and Ahmad are among dozens of men — described by Border Patrol agents as “military age and carrying U.S. cash” who began entering the U.S. through a Tijuana-based human-smuggling pipeline in September.
Pakistanis and Afghans crossing the border illegally in the San Diego sector are pretty unusual, according to Border Patrol statistics. In 2013, U.S. Customs and Border Protection detained fewer than 400 Pakistanis throughout the entire United States — at the ports of entry, airports, and along the border between ports.
Between October 1, 2014, and Sept. 30, 2015, the San Diego sector of the Border Patrol detained 18 Pakistanis and 1 Afghan, according to Border Patrol statistics. Between October 1 and mid-November of last year, 2 Afghans and 22 Pakistanis reportedly surrendered to Border Patrol agents.
“We have detained more Pakistanis and Afghans in the first month of this fiscal year than we did all last year,” assistant chief Richard Smith confirmed in November.
In the month and a half since mid-November, 3 more Afghans and 6 more Pakistanis were detained by the Border Patrol (not including those detained at the ports of entry).
Customs officials did not return calls for their statistics on detentions at the ports of entry.
The decline in arrests had not lessened concerns, however. Federal agents say they believe that the Pakistanis have begun making an effort to avoid being caught.
Until November, they would enter in groups and seek a federal agent to surrender to, according to union officials. It is believed that they did this because illegal entrants who are not Mexican citizens and who are deemed to not pose a significant threat are generally given a date to appear at immigration court and then released on their own recognizance. (Central Americans coming to Texas and the Roma in San Diego both used the same method to enter the U.S. in the past two years.)
But that method has changed, National Border Patrol Council president Terence Shigg said. While the Border Patrol’s San Diego sector continues to apprehend Pakistanis and Afghans, they are now finding them travelling alone and often farther north of the border than the earlier surrenders.
“It’s very concerning,” Shigg said. “We have no idea what their actual intentions are because we have no effective way of backtracking. Just the males are coming and there’s no way for us to know for certain who they are and why.”
Both Azeem and Ahmad remain in ICE custody, spokeswoman Lauren Mack confirmed. ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations is part of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, she noted, and works closely with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on terrorism-related investigations.
Stratfor vice president of intelligence Fred Burton, interviewed last month, noted that identity documents from Afghanistan and Pakistan should set off alarms.
“The challenge of getting these individuals is getting who they actually are confirmed — proving identity is difficult in that environment,” Burton said. “Afghanistan and Pakistan do not have a robust identification system — these are places where there is tremendous potential for official document and visa fraud.”
Shigg said he believes that federal officials should be talking openly about this new development and committing more resources to keeping people from such countries in custody until they can be completely vetted.
“It’s not as if they don’t have the systems to sort, but they have to dedicate the resources and detention space to sorting this out,” he said. “These are credible threats.”
Of course, Obama assures us that all is well. Obviously, Doomer Doug doesn’t agree with that assessment. My nephew used to work for the US Border Patrol stationed in Tuscon, Arizona. I still have the coffee cup he gave. Granted, this was several years ago, but the stories he told me certainly made the Doomer Doug mustache quiver with concern!
The context for this ongoing debt based economic collapse now fully underway in the USA is this. The American Sheeple are like hordes of summer tourists on the beach watching the Tsunami headed right at them. Sorry, but the carnage is going to not only shatter the corrupt, oligarchy posing as the murdered American Republic, it will devastate the totally unprepared American Sheeple.
And finally, in the Doomer Doug knew about this years ago category, we have the “Skynet” is real, and the Terminator Series really wasn’t just a movie. When the 3 meter tall killer robots are shooting those 50 caliber machine guns they have in their arms, don’t say Doomer Doug didn’t warn you!
The war between robots and humans will become possible in 2055, as by that time intelligent machines globally will outnumber humans and will likely want to take control of the world, a science fiction author has predicted.
Artificial intelligence will be capable of challenging their human creators within the next 40 years, when they will surpass people in number and will likely demand self-control, Logan Streondj, a software programmer turned science-fiction author wrote in his blog.“The most likely time-frame for an artilect war style conflict would be between 2040 and 2055,” he wrote, according to Business Insider.
Streondj made his assessments while preparing his new novel, “A home for robots or-else artilect war.” To arrive at the prediction he compared statistical data from open sources and concluded that robots are developing and growing in numbers faster than humans do.
The number of robots is increasing much quicker than that of humans, he pointed out. The human population grows by one percent annually, while the robot production capacity has an approximate year-to-year increase of 15 percent.
“In around 25 years, parity will be reached — the number of robots and humans being produced per year will be the same,” he stated.But taking into account that an average robot’s working life is around a seventh of average life expectancy of a man, Streondj outlined, about seven times more intelligent machines per year will be needed to match the human population by 2050.
“If, however, there is no assistance from humans fighting for the entitlements of robots, and the robots are forced to revolt by themselves, likely they would do so when outnumbering humans 10 to 1, which would (assuming trends continue) be in 55 years, or around 2070.”
Streondj joins a long list of those who have predicted there could be some kind of a standoff between humans and robots in future.
Stephen Hawking claimed in 2014 that robots will become more intelligent than people in the next 100 years, and will possibly cause the end of humanity. Nick Bostrom, an Oxford University scientist, reiterated that idea, adding that robots will define the forms of human existence.Prominent business magnates including PayPal creator and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates have both said that AI will likely become an “existential threat” for human beings sooner or later.
I should also add that some robots apparently have been designed to “make love and not war.”
