Canada’s Risk Database
Reader C.H. sent this: Police in Canada Are Tracking People’s ‘Negative’ Behavior In a ‘Risk’ Database. Here is a snippet:
“Information about people believed to be ‘at risk’ of becoming criminals or victims of harm is shared between civilian agencies and police and is added to the database when a person is being evaluated for a rapid intervention intended to lower their risk levels. Interventions can range from a door knock and a chat to forced hospitalization or arrest.”
C.H.’s Comment: “According to the article this currently focuses on homeless people, children in dangerous neighborhoods etc. But how long before there is a Canadian “social credit” system similar to what the PRC is doing?”

Why Globalists are Obsessed with Artificial Intelligence
Several readers suggested a recent essay by Brandon Smith: The Real Reason Why Globalists Are So Obsessed With Artificial Intelligence. Here is a key quote:
“The globalists have long held AI as a kind of holy grail in centralization technology. The United Nations has adopted numerous positions and even summits on the issue, including the “AI For Good” summit in Geneva. The UN insinuates that it’s primary interest in AI is in regulation or observation of how it is exploited, but the UN also has clear goals to use AI to its advantage. The use of AI as a means to monitor mass data to better institute “sustainable development” is written clearly in the UN’s agenda.
The IMF is also in on the AI trend, holding global discussions on the uses of AI in economics as well as the effects of algorithms on economic analysis.
The main source for the development of AI has long been DARPA. The military and globalist think tank dumps billions of dollars into the technology, making AI the underlying focus of most of DARPA’s work. AI is not only on the globalist’s radar; they are essentially spearheading the creation and promotion of it.”

Ocasio-Cortez on the Internecine War Path
D.S. sent us this: Ocasio-Cortez warns of ‘list’ for moderate Dems who vote with Republicans: report. A quote:
“According to the Post, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded her wayward center-leaning colleagues, telling them: “We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision.”
But Ocasio-Cortez reportedly took it a step further. She said she would help progressive activists unseat those moderates in their districts in the 2020 elections, the report said. Her spokesman Corbin Trent told the paper that she made the “list” comment during the meeting.”
JWR’s Comment: Keep a close eye on She Guevara and her fellow congressional freshman Democrats. If they gain a foothold, they will push the Democrat Party radically to the left. Their intolerance of any accommodation with Republicans is a key indicator.
What Are GMDs?
G.G. flagged this: What Are GMDs and Why Is the US Government Worried About Them? Here is a brief excerpt:
“A geomagnetic disturbance (GMD) or solar storm occurs when the magnetic cloud, called a coronal mass ejection, that is emitted from the sun as part of a solar eruption collides with the Earth’s shielding magnetic field,” Randy Horton, senior program manager at the Electric Power Research Institute and another panelist, said. “This collision generates currents in the magnetosphere and ionosphere of the Earth’s outer atmosphere which in turn induces GIC [geomagnetically induced current] in transmission lines and transformer windings at the Earth’s surface.”
