Even in times of trouble, remember our greatness: NASA and SpaceX successful launch to space station

Amidst all the rioting, looting and unrest going on right now, America continued to show her greatness in achievements yesterday with a new mission to the International Space Station.

In a public/private partnership with Elon Musk’s SpaceX, astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley launched from Kennedy Space Center’s historic Launch Pad 39A at 3:22 p.m. EDT yesterday. NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station is a critical final flight test of the SpaceX crew transportation system. Read about the launch here.

Better yet, watch the videos!

We watched the launch live. It was amazing!

Gavin Newsom sets in motion his plan to steal Disaster Relief Funds from Pandemic victims. Primarily victims that voted for Trump

The arragent lawlessness of the democrat party no longer surprises me. We see this behavior more and more because they are allowed to get away with it, unchallenged.

In states like California, where democrats have complete control of all aspects of the government,  the corruption runs rampant.

The democrats misappropriation of state funds and desire to put their personal interests before the citizens have caused a financial hardship on the state.

To counter this hardship the democrats appear to have redefined the position of state Governor. State “Grifter” is more appropriate  title than state Governor.

Governor Newsom appears to spend most of his time trying to figure out new ways to scam the Federal government out of money.

Currently, Newsom is trying to use the covid-19 pandemic to scam the Federal government. For Newsom it’s all about that getting that disaster relief money.

By now we all should be familiar with Elon Musk battle with Alameda County. (A battle he won). Prior to winning the battle Musk went to Newsome to discuss this problem. Newsom made it clear that it was the county officials call. They are to decide when it’s ok to lift any restrictions. Basically he said he can’t do anything about it.

Newsom made the decision to leave it up to the counties. Alameda also agrees with this decision. A commenrt made by Alameda’s health official was ” The governor’s order does not override the county’s stay-at-home order, which is in place through May 31.

It should bew perfectly clear that Newsom passed on the responsibility of “reopening” the counties. With that being the case, we must ask ourselves “Why is Newsome harassing and making threats to Sutter, Modoc and Yuba counties?

‘Gov. Gavin Newsom is warning three counties that they could lose disaster funding if t”ey continue to defy his stay-at-home order.

Officials in Yuba, Sutter and Modoc counties all allowed businesses to reopen because they have fewer coronavirus cases than other parts of the state”.

It’s more than likely he is doing it because of the people that live there.

Sutter County. ” Strongly Republican in presidential and congressional elections. The last democrat to win a majority in the county was Franklin Roosevelt in 1940.”

Modoc County. Strongly Republican in Presidential and cogressional elections. It is the most Republican county in California. The last Democrat to win a majority in the county was Lyndon Johnson in 1964.

Yuba County. Republican in the last five Presidential elections.
In the last Presidential election, Yuba county remained strongly Republican, 57.3% to 34.4%. * This makes me wonder how a democrat won the congressional seat.

*Stanislaus County should be next on Newsom’s hit list, Stanislaus has decided to ignore Newsom’s orders. The county is a “battleground” politically. If,or should I say when actual combat with firearms “kicked off” this would be a hot spot, if not the front line. There would be hundreds, if not thousands of casualties the first few days. The citizens are heavly armed. This is my county.

Alameda is a democrat county. Newsom lets the county do it’s own thing while attacking 3 Republican counties. This is obvious political descrimination.

*If you are one of the few democrats that live in these counties, consider yourself abandoned by your party leader. Newsom considers you a acceptable loss, killed by friendly fire.

Like everything else Newsom does, this is abuse of his power if not criminal. The quickest, more realistic solution to end this is by taking all disaster relief funding provided by the Federal government and relieve the state of the responsibility to issue it out. Give it directly to the counties.

Some might be asking, “Do you have any more proof about him stealing the disaster funds?”

Personally, I think how he handled these counties is enough proof to start a investigation. A person might say, “it’s the same as Trump witholding funds from California.” It’s not. These counties are not breaking any laws.. They’re not trying to cover their debt that had accumilated prior to the pandemic. That’s exactly what Newsome is doing. Trying to cover the debt of the state that accumilated prior to the pandemic. A debt the democrats created. Make no mistake, Newsom wants that money.

What we should keep in mind.

It seemsa like yesterday when Newsome was going to rehab for his cocaine addiction. That was around the same time when he was cheating on his wife and having an affair with his campaign managers wife, doing lines is the nearest bathroom.

Just imagine. The manager is out telling everyone how great Newsom is while at the same time, his wife is in the back seat of the family car having a good time with Newsom.

Newsom, a guy that screws over his wife and his most trusting friend. He is a person that knows zero about loyalty and lkacks integrity and morality. This is a person that has proven to be untrustworthy. Yet, he wins the election.

  • I don’t believe he got the legal amount of votes required to win. When the polls closed on election day, Newsome was behind. Just like most of the democrats in the election. He along with the other democrats won after the mail in votes were counted. Ballots that come in after the polls that arrive by mail don’t get inspected the same way they do when the polls are open. Democrats changed that rule. All fake ballots make it through, unchallanged.. It doesn’t help matters when many of the election officials are corrupt.

Newsom and his crew of pirates need to be audited. The first place I would start would be the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CDF) and their branch, Cal Fire.

I would investigate every piece of equipment owned by Cal Fire. If you have been paying attention in the past you will have noticed that many of the aircraft used to fight fires in California are owned by private contractors or other sources. Cal Fire has not been using their own equipment.

A good question would be, “If they are paying private contractors or other sources to fight fires then why have they spent so much money buying their own equipment?”

Here is some of the aircraft owned by Cal Fire. This information comes from Wikipedia

“In support of its ground forces, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) emergency response air program includes 23 Grumman S-2T 1,200 gallon airtankers, eleven UH-1H Super Huey helicopters, and 14 OV-10A airtactical aircraft. These aircraft are stationed at 13 air attack and 10 helitack bases located statewide.”

Then there is the expense to maintain the equipment.

The average annual budget of the CAL FIRE Aviation Management Program is nearly $20 million.”

I shoul also ad the following.  This comes from a prior post of mine titled,

Kincade fire revisited. 

“In addition I found the following. They have 61 dozers, 50 fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft which include , 2 Air King A200 and 1 or more of the following, Dornier Do-228, C-23A Sherpa (SD3-30), Air Tractor AT-802A “FireBoss”mman S-2T, Lockheed P-2 Neptune, CL-215/ Bombardier 415 “Superscooper”, Douglas DC-7,McDonnell Douglas MD-87, British Aerospace Bae 146/ Avro RJ85, L188 Electra, Lockheed C-130 Hercules, Boeing 747, DC-10, AH-1 Firewatch “Cobra” ,Sikorsky S-61, Sikorsky S-64, Sikorsky S -70 “Firehawk”,Eurocopter AS-332L, Boeing-Vertol BV 107, Boeing 234 “Chinook”, Kaman “K-Max”, Bell 212, Bell 205 A++, Bell 412, Bell 407, Bell 206B “JetRanger”, Bell 206L-III “LongRanger”, Eurocopter AS350 AStar, MD 500D, Aérospatiale SA 315B “Lama”, Alouette 316B, Lockheed C-130, UH -60 “Blackhawk”, Boeing CH-46 “Sea Knight”, CH -47 “Chinook”, Sikorsky CH-53E “Super Stallion” (Sikorsky S-80E). For details click here.”

Cal Fires budget is up to 2.6 billion a year.

Why have the equipment if we are not using it? We need  inventory every piece of equipment.  We will be lucky if it’s  all there.

Before the Federal government gives any more money to the state of California, as well as any other state, they should require some sort of proof that shows prior spending matched request or purpose for the funding..  It’s  not too much to ask for.  If you or I are going to give someone money, we are going to want to know what it’s  spent on.  We are going to expect it to be spent on what we were told it was for.

Newsome is just like every other Democrat in a leadership position, corrupt.  It wouldn’t  surprise me if the democrats weren’t busy rigging the 2020 election, while all the focus is on the pandemic.

The whole concept of waiting for a covid-19 vaccine is stupidity at its best.  We have been looking for a vaccine  for HIV since the early 80’s.  In 2019 the US spent a minimum of 34 billion  on HIV. 

Still  no vaccine.

Democrats know this.  Newsome and the rest of the democrat leadership are nothing more than a band of grifters.  They are an embarrassment to every American, among many other things.

Law Enforcement and the Justice Department need step up and start making arrests  Treat the politicians the same way they treat everyone else.   It will only take a few before they start telling on each other.  Then they all fall.  It’s  that easy.

Respectfully,

Deplorable Patriot.

Elon Musk’s 31-year-old pregnant girlfriend is “woefully ill-prepared”

Elon Musk (who is 48) supposedly knocked up his 31-year-old Canadian singer girlfriend who goes by the names of “Grimes.”

She posted on Instagram a few days ago that she feels “woefully ill-prepared” because she really didn’t understand what she was getting into.

From her post:

“Fake or real? Haha. Wow I’m starting to feel bad haha… how do y’all cope with working and having a baby?? I’m sorry I haven’t been promoting my album properly or on social media more. This whole thing has been a bit of an ordeal. Had some complications early on, a decent second trimester but starting to hurt everywhere at 25 wksz. What were yalls experience w this stuff like? I feel like I was woefully ill prepared cuz I dunno if pregnancy is as visible or discussed as it should be. I just didn’t rly understand what I was getting into. It’s been good too, but it makes working a lot harder. Good at writing and having lots of wild ideas tho, but anything physical is hard. Im also way more emo and less capable of bravery in the face of haters online and stuff haha. But my albums out in a sec so I prob need to get back on here. Don’t mind my emo energy, but curious what other ppls experience was like 🤍🐁🍼 I didn’t even google it, I was just like sure y not hahaha smh.”

Womyn, please. You are 31 years old. Quick acting like you are 17 and that no woman has ever given birth before.

For a womyn who is considered a “badass” she sure whines a lot. You picked a real winner, Elon.

Hollywood insider’s July 4 blind reveals Part 1: cruelty, drugs, pedophilia, prostitution, sodomy, stalking

Hollywood truly is a cess pool of stomach-churning evil.

Crazy Days and Nights (CDAN) is a Hollywood blog run by someone with evident insider knowledge of the “entertainment industry”. He calls himself Ent Lawyer (Ent=Entertainment), and claims to never having been sued.

Ent Lawyer is described by The Daily Beast as having a track record of accuracy. Investigative journalist Mark Ebner said this about Ent Lawyer:

In my opinion, that’s what makes him so impressive, is that no one knows who he is, and he’s being proven right again and again. That’s like legendary shit.

To celebrate Independence Day, on July 4 and 5, Ent Lawyer posted a dizzying series of blind-item reveals. I’ve selected the juiciest ones to post on FOTM.

Keep in mind that Ent Lawyer published these blind reveals although he might be sued for libel, which suggests he is confident that the reveals are true.

Here is Part One. Part Two will be published tomorrow. (Note: I inserted the names in bold between brackets, as well as the embedded links).

There is a drug dealer in LA who I have written about in the past. He charges double and sometimes triple what a regular dealer would charge, simply because he knows celebrities are not going out to compare prices. They want someone they can trust and honestly, most of them have no idea how much what they are buying is supposed to cost. This dealer makes nearly $10M a year profit and really has no fear of ever getting busted by the law. However, there is one thing he does fear and he is spreading the word to his clients about that fear and they are starting to get involved. There is currently a lawsuit out there that involves two very high profile people. One is an A list actor [Johnny Depp, who urged actors to assassinate President Trump] and the other is an A- list actress [Amber Heard]. The A- list actress is by far the best client the dealer has. Not so far as her personal use goes, but for the sheer volume of people she has introduced to the dealer. Nearly 75% of his business came through her referrals. One of those referrals is a celebrity CEO [Elon Musk] who will most assuredly be brought into this lawsuit at some point. There will be questions about drug use. Once that happens, the dealer knows it is highly likely that his name will be brought up. This is a civil trial, and not criminal, however our dealer knows he will then probably be asked to give a deposition and he won’t be able to answer the questions without leaving himself open to criminal charges down the road. Our actress will probably be asked about drugs and certain names will come up. The dealer is warning those people to get involved now. They include studio executives, several A/A- list closeted actresses, married actors who have “partied” with the actress. All of these people are now starting to put pressure on the two people involved in the suit to drop it all because they could bring down a house of cards that will send a lot of careers and lives down a hole.

It was not that long ago that this sometime A+ list mostly movie actor [Nicolas Cage] who really hovers at the A/A- list range had to sell of a lot of stuff. Much like Johnny Depp, he had a ton of houses and possessions but not enough cash flow. He also owed the tax man a ton of money. So, he had a fire sale and signed up for some easy paychecks. Road to recovery. One of the things he didn’t sell, and that most people don’t even know he owns is a motel. Located in the heart of Koreatown here in LA, it is next to what Koreans would call a room salon. It is a place where men gather and have drinks served to them by barely dressed barely legal women. There is a lot of groping and often times money is exchanged and the men want to have sex with one of the women. Enter the motel. Our actor has owned it for close to two decades. It is said he gets a cut of whatever the men pay the women plus the hotel room charge, plus of course a never ending supply of porn. Each room is completely wired for video and sound. The actor spared no expense and has two technicians who make sure everything is running smoothly. Over the last few years, the actor has enjoyed a direct to home video feed of each motel room. Our actor has also managed to capture on film several studio heads, athletes, agents and managers. There have also been several local politicians. Our actor doesn’t extort them for money, but makes sure that each of them knows he has recordings of them having sex with barely legal women. It is one of the reasons he gets paid double for crap movies and why he keeps getting booked for tons of movies despite all of his personal foibles and addiction issues.

Not even a mile from the famed music festival in the desert [Coachella] are two separate compounds. One is the famed home of a long time entertainer who was A+ list and [Merv Griffin] continues to make tons of money even after death from the empire he established. One of the men he groomed is someone all of you know [Ryan Seacrest]. There is a gap between the entertainer’s estate and a subdivision that will never be zoned for construction. It is referred to in the compound as the gap. If this was Cold War East Berlin it would probably be called the death zone. This gap is the length of a football field and runs around the compound much the same way a moat would. High walls prevent anyone from just walking into the gap. For much of the year, it is just a place that, if you have enough money, people can rent out. It is very expensive to rent and no matter how much you pay, one of the homes is completely off limits. That home is the nerve center of the board of The Bohemian Grove who use the desert compound each Easter to work out the final details for their summer ritual. They also are known to try out various males and should things get a little rough or one of those males would like to run off during the night, the gap stops them cold. Nothing gets past the gap. The nerve center has lists of members and files on each and dirt on each. It has countless servers filled with all kinds of information about all kinds of people.

Now, one added little tidbit to this. I mentioned two compounds. There is a tunnel between the entertainer compound and also a compound consisting of three homes built by a shell company of the company that is a huge part of the music festival. The three homes and the entertainer compound are probably a good half mile apart, maybe a touch more, but there is a fully lit cement tunnel much like you would see underneath a football stadium that runs between the two locations. It can easily fit several golf carts or small cars in the passageway. Escape route for performers or a way for them to enjoy something more ominous courtesy of the Bohemian Grove board.

Apparently Bani met with a man this week who recently had dinner with a very wealthy businessman [Mohamed Al-Fayed] who owns one of the world’s landmark buildings as well as one of the world’s landmark hotels. When the son of the businessman [Dodi Fayed] died, the father received all the possessions.

Is it the greatest practical joke of all time? Wow, that is tough, because we don’t know every practical joke that has ever existed. Out of the ones I am aware of, this is right up there and is also a little sad, which also seems to happen when a joke is particularly good. So, apparently there is this guy who is married and was playing poker one night and got a little buzzed. Who slides up next to him, but this former almost A- list mostly movie actress [Lindsay Lohan] who basically asks if he wants some company. One thing leads to another and they have sex. Apparently during the night, our actress Googled the guy and finds out how much he is worth and decides she wants some of those hundreds of millions, wife be damned. So, she starts putting on the full court press and calls his office and cell and shows up in places where he is. He wants her out of his life. He talks to some friends and passes out some money and decides this will be fun. She wants to meet him in Belgium where she is about to start filming. He agrees, which must have probably shocked her. When they do meet, he is looking over his shoulder, and acting as if he is being followed. He passes her a room key and tells her to meet him. She shows up and explains to her that he is trying to acquire another company and needs permission of the EU for the merger/acquisition to take place. At least two other companies are trying to close the deal, and are following him to see who he talks to. He is trying to get members of the appropriate committee on his side, but the woman he had set up to “meet” with them had bailed. Does our actress known anyone who could help. Our actress, seeing this as a chance to use her wiles and accents says she will take on the task and with the help of the businessman goes about seducing or attempting to seduce members of this EU governing body to try and get the sale approved and her boyfriend might dump the wife and marry our actress. The guys our business person hired pretend to tail the actress and make her feel like she is living in a spy movie. The actress is skipping filming just to find these men and sleep with them. Finally, after the fourth or fifth guy, she asks one about the merger and the guy has no idea what she is talking about. So, she goes back to two others and they have no idea what she is talking about either. She realizes she has been had. The thing is though, to this day she will tell you she was a spy.

At the time she was stalking, she wasn’t A+ list, but she has been since and each and everyone of you know who she is [Angelina Jolie]. There was a time when she met this former A+ list mostly movie actor [Timothy Hutton] who is an Academy Award winner/nominee and is now settling for one off roles on television. Anyway, our actress was in love with the actor. The actor thought she was interesting and slept with the actress one night. One night. The morning after, our actress went and got his initial tattooed on her wrist. She then showed it to him and he decided she was a bit too intense for his liking. She then started following him everywhere and showing up at events where she knew he would be. It got boiling bunny bad. The actor threatened to get a restraining order, so she backed off. Within a week, she was wanting to hook up with this alliterate at the time A- list mostly movie actor [Billy Bob Thornton]. So, our actress went and got his initials tattooed on her vajajay so he would see them there when they did hook up. He did find them there. I wonder when they split if she got it removed. The tattoo artist said later that she made it as faded as she could because she thought it was a dumb idea and wanted it to be able to be removed more easily than others.Angelina Jolie/Timothy Hutton/Billy Bob

Those close to this disgraced former A- list mostly television actress from a long running hit show [Allison Mack of NXIVM] know the identity of the person footing the bill for legal services in exchange for sex. He has got some very big pockets and is close to some other people who also are in need of legal services for the same issue. What people didn’t know is who is the second person she has been hooking up with. The guy she says she wants to be with forever. No one has seen him. It is a jaw dropper. Apparently it is one of the people that was investigating her. Not sure if the person is local or federal. It seems like a huge conflict of interest regardless of their jurisdiction.

Golden Globes

At a private Globes after party last night, this legendary permanent A-list actress and comedienne [Carol Burnett] was asked who the worst behaved guest on her long running, forever in reruns show was. She answered without hesitation that the worst was the male half [Richard Carpenter] of that singing sibling duo [The Carpenters], who was a complete control freak over his sister’s [Karen Carpenter] appearance. She’s [Carol Burnett] also convinced he was on coke. What’s worse was that the duo’s mother [Agnes Reuwer] was hovering around the set like a vulture. The legendary funny lady said things came to a head during a lunch break in the TV studio commissary. The mother gave the chef strict orders to give her daughter a bowl of soup and a glass of water. The funny lady, concerned, offered the singer a tray of food. Enraged, the brother swooped down and took the tray from his sibling. Then, the mother came up to the legend and yelled at her to never do that again.. and slapped her daughter on the face in front of the stunned cast and crew. Her brother was also yelling at her like she was a little girl.The legend and her producer husband had the mother kicked out of the studio. Very disturbing.

Everyone knows the story of why this permanent A list mostly movie actor [Bill Murray] who is an Academy Award winner/nominee wouldn’t sign on for a sequel to a huge franchise [Charlie’s Angels] from about a decade ago. He and one of the female co-leads [Lucy Liu] hated each other. But why did they hate each other? Legend has it that he criticized her acting and she hated him after that. The real story is though he is a drunk and a mean drunk at that and a get what I want when I am drunk kind of guy and he would not stop hitting on her and making advances on her and trying to touch her and she wasn’t having any of it and hated him for that. Because she said no to him so many times, he made it out to be the reason he couldn’t stand her was because of her acting. That ticked off our actress who then beat the hell out of the actor.

This singer is permanently A list [Janet Jackson]. Long before she was a singer though, she was an actress. An actress who was young. She started off as a tween. She doesn’t like to talk about those years. The only thing she will ever say is she acted and what shows she was on. Ask her what happened behind the scenes though and she won’t say a word. I would argue that many of her choices to remain private and distant about her personal life stems from the time on those sets. Two in particular stand out because they shared an executive producer. This is a producer I have written about before who repeatedly sexually assaulted a star [Dana Plato] of one of the shows [Diff’rent Strokes]. He got her hooked on drugs so she would let him do things to her or have other people join in. She was a zombie. What I haven’t written about before is the long term molesting of the permanent A list singer which went on for almost five years. What had been this bubbly lively personality became so shy and withdrawn that it always took multiple takes for her scenes because she was so quiet and so fearful for what would happen after the scenes were shot. Because she had such a controlling monster as a parent, I wonder if she just accepted this controlling monster as her boss.

Because of the detail, I used the tipster’s own words. I just removed the names and replaced them with descriptions. I also removed the name of the company and job title of the tipster to keep them anonymous.

When this eponymous cable network [OWN: Opray Winfrey Network] first appeared, it aired a competition show [Your OWN Show] where contestants competed for their own show on the network. Two of the judges were someone who was big back in the day on a cable channel [Daisy Fuentes] that used to play music and the other was our diva [Vera Wang, a big donor to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign]. The subject of the blind who you might not recognize, but every single one of you knows her name. From the get-go, our diva was an absolute nightmare. DAY ONE: I showed up at her hotel with her styling team after flying them first class from NYC to LA per her demand (because the talent in LA isn’t good enough?!) only to have her turn the manicurist away because she had gotten her nails done the day before in New York. $5k in travel expenses out the window for that one. Then, after refusing to participate in any of the pre-production meetings, she arrived to set and refused to read her script. She demanded the whole thing be re-written minutes before filming was set to begin. Then, as the contestants entered the set, she stormed off again to scream at me and some producers because she will not (and I quote) “be seen in frame with a fucking whale and a fucking retard” (one of the contestants was rather obese and one had cerebral palsy) She said her brand doesn’t “sponsor the Special Olympics.” __________________ was running production and the team took swift action to rearrange things so she didn’t have to be seen in frame with the “offending” contestants and filming continued for the day. DAY TWO: I arrived at her hotel to get her to set and I immediately noticed that the thousands of absolutely gorgeous orange roses that decorated the lobby the day before were all gone and were replaced with equally beautiful lilies. I made a comment in passing to one of the lobby staff about the change of flowers because it seemed odd that such beautiful (and expensive) flowers would be replaced so quickly. He let me know that “my special guest was displeased with the roses” so they had to replace them. The day continued with incessant complaints and at least three threats to walk-off and not come back. That night, after hearing the reports from set, this A++ list celebrity [Oprah Winfrey] who was the network so to speak sent a bouquet of flowers to the diva’s hotel in an effort to smooth things over and ensure filming could wrap the next day. DAY THREE: I again arrived to pick her up in the morning and the first thing she said to me is “tell your boss that the next time she decides to send me flowers as a peace offering, to make sure they’re not bullshit Kmart flowers”. _________________ Fucking _____________ sent these flowers to her. Now, I didn’t see them with my own eyes but I can rightfully imagine these were not slouchy flowers of the Kmart variety! We did manage to make it through filming that day. The episode had to be heavily edited to limit her screen time. Everyone lived. But I swear to you I have never purchased another diva item since and every time I see anything about her I feel sick to my stomach remembering what a vile human-being she is. The former cable star, on the other hand, was an incredibly kind, genuine, sweet, accommodating and amazing celebrity to work with. She was a true gem and would have been even if the whole diva situation hadn’t happened!

Physicist Geordie Rose recruits techies to create a ‘tsunami’ of AI demons who see humans as ants

Geordie Rose is a physicist, with a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of British Columbia in 2000, and a B. Eng. in engineering physics from McMasters University in 1994.

Rose is the founder-CEO-CTO of the Canadian quantum computer company D­-Wave Systems, Inc., the first company in the world to sell quantum computers. D-Wave claims its quantum computers with the “quantum annealing processor” are much more powerful in processing speed than regular computers.

But D-Wave’s claims are controversial, with many dissenters. A study published in Science in June 2014, described as “the fairest” and “most thorough and precise study that has been done on the performance of the D-Wave machine” found that the D-Wave chip “produced no quantum speedup”. Despite that, in May 2013, NASA, Google and a consortium of universities announced a partnership with D-Wave to investigate how D-Wave’s computers could be used in the creation of artificial intelligence (AI).

Which brings us to Kindred, of which Rose is co-founder and CEO — a company, based in San Francisco and Toronto, which manufactures robots. This is how Kindred describes itself:

We bring together artificial general intelligence, machine learning, and remote human guidance to create intelligent robots that solve real-world problems alongside humans in messy, complex, changing environments like today’s supply chain.

Our systems work on Day 1 and get smarter every day.

We are on a mission to build human-like intelligence in machines, enabling a future of abundance for all. We thoughtfully and realistically pave the way for a world filled with more powerful and helpful AI systems. Our research spans AGI, deep learning, reinforcement learning, multi-sensory machine perception, dynamic motion planning, AR + VR, distributed multi-agent control systems, and much more.

“A world filled with more powerful and helpful” robots with “human-like intelligence” which will “enable a future of abundance for all”.

Sounds good, doesn’t it?

Except it’s not.

This is what Geordie Rose, founder and CEO of Kindred — a company that is “on a mission” to build “powerful” robots with “human-life intelligence” — actually said about those robots in a speech at the June 2017 TechVancouver.

After claiming that “we are right on the verge of a transition” to a near future when robots would replace human workers because they can do every single job better and cheaper, Rose said (6:17 mark), “What does this have to do with aliens?” He then cites what Sam Harris, whom Rose says he quite admires, said at a TED talk:

“So I’m the president of the United States. I received this message from the heavens. So my microwave dish, my SETI dish, finally captures something, and what it says is, ‘In 50 years or 13 years, we’re coming to your planet. You gotta be ready.’ Now just imagine what would happen if that happened — a super intelligent alien race beamed down a message to all of us earthlings, saying ‘We’re coming, July 13, 2030, and boy, you’d better be ready because the mother ship is landing right on the front lawn of the White House.'”

Speaking as himself, Rose then says:

AI [artificial intelligence] is just like that. So when this thing that I’m talking about happens . . . one thing I can tell you is they’re not going to be like us.

Alien means, you know, different. These things that we’re building are not going to be people. They might be really smart, they might be really good at all sorts of things, but they’re not gonna be like us. They’re gonna be aliens, and they’re gonna be — I’m sorry to say — way smarter than every single person in this room, in ways that we can’t even be comprehend.

So this, of course, triggers a lot of alarm. One of the guys who talks about this is Elon [Musk], who says things like this — ‘When you do this, beware. Because you think . . . that when you do this, you’re gonna put that . . . little guy in a pentagram, and you’re gonna have your holy water out, and you’re gonna wave it at the thing and, by God, it’s gonna do exactly what you say and not one thing more. But it never works out that way.’

[Referring to Musk] So this is an attitude that some are having — this emerging alarmism about the way this [artificial intelligence] is gonna go. But these words, ‘demons,’ doesn’t capture the essence of what’s happening here. I don’t know if any of you are turn-of-the-century weird fiction fans, but there’s a guy named H. P. Lovecraft, who’s a very famous American weird fiction author, and he exposed a view which is called cosmicism.

The essence of cosmicism is cosmic indifference. So what he was saying is basically ‘Yes, there are these massively intelligent entities out there, but they’re not good, they’re not evil, they just don’t give a shit about you, even in the slightest. The same way that you don’t care about an ant, is the same way they’re not gonna care about you.’

And these things that we’re summoning into the world now are not demons, they’re not evil, but they’re more like the Lovecraftian ‘Great Old Ones’. There are entities that are not necessarily going to be aligned with what we want. So this transition [to a world full of powerful intelligent robots] is really really massively important for our entire species to navigate and, going back to that thing that Sam Harris was saying, nobody is paying attention. This thing is happening in the background, while people bicker about politics and what’s gonna be in the health care plan in the U.S., while underneath it all is this rising tsunami that, if we’re not careful, is going to wipe us all out.

J. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was an atheist who achieved posthumous fame through his horror fantasy fiction about powerful, grotesque beings who are aliens worshipped as gods by humans, but who are either indifferent or actively hostile to humanity.

The most powerful of them are the Great Old Ones, who created human beings from scientific experiments to be a slave race. Cthulhu is their high priest,  described as looking like an octopus, a dragon, and a caricature of human form.

In his 1934 short story The Hound, Lovecraft made mention of a (fictional) textbook of magic, Necronomicon, which contains an account of the Old Ones, their history, and the means for summoning them — demons, in all but in name.

Right after Geordie Rose warned about robot-manufacturers like himself and his company Kindred “summoning into the world” a “tsunami” of Lovecraftian demons who may “wipe us all out,” Rose announces to the techies at TechVancouver (10:21 mark):

“We’re hiring people to try to make something like this happen.”

How perverse is that.

Geordie Rose is recruiting young people to work in Kindred to make the nightmare scenario of demon robots who see humans as ants come true.
