SKYE’S LINKS 06/08/23

On Monday (6/05), several Russian TV channels and radio stations broadcast a message from what seemed like President Vladimir Putin. In the address, Putin was heard declaring martial law and ordering citizens living in the border areas near Ukraine to evacuate and seek safety deeper inside Russia.  It sure looked and sounded like Putin – and it’s true that whole towns have been evacuated in the past week or so.

Yet it’s been declared an AI fake.  Most Russians don’t know what to believe with many panic-stricken.  The lesson to us is that AI-created video fraud spread by skilled hackers is just beginning:

Here’s good news!  Google’s YouTube has made a substantial change in their election coverage censorship policy, and boy, are the Leftists mad!  I suspect that the Twitter Files and the LA/MO AG’s First Amendment censorship litigation have a lot to do with this policy switch:

Here’s weird news.  Believe it or not, there are a lot of people who favor government TV cameras in every home. Here are some interesting statistics with a breakdown by age and race (hint: the more under 45 you are the answer is “surewhynot”, while the more over 45 the answer is “areyounuts”:

US Senator J.D. Vance of “Hillbilly Elegy” fame is sick and tired of BlackRock Larry “Rat” Fink, who believes his company’s trillions in asset management has the right to force – force – acceptance of his ESG/DEI (Environmental, Social, Governance/Diversity, Equity, Governance) fascist tyranny:

There is a solution to this tyranny.  Red states are pulling their money, and customers are revolting with real effect against this BS.  Get woke go broke for the boycott win!  Customers rule!

A lot of significant news has gotten buried in the noise and fury of the Woke Wars.  Remember J6 – and the FBI’s cheerleader Ray “We’ve got to go into the Capitol!” Epps?

The Green revolution hasn’t paused, and I expect Irish farmers to soon react much like their Dutch brethren.  The Irish government is considering killing 200,000 cows to appease the climate change priests:

Another sign of the times…  What has happened to Boeing?  The wiring harness protection tape that they used on their manned Starliner spacecraft is flammable!  Really!!  And the parachute links aren’t strong enough to withstand the failure of one of the three parachutes.  As an ancient rocket scientist who helped to send men to the moon and bring them home safely, I am appalled.  This is not the way that we did things, Perhaps the Boeing Starliner was designed by people taught that 2+2=5 is close enough.  Elon Musk knows far better:

Safety concerns force Boeing to delay Starliner spacecraft mission again


And it isn’t just Boeing spacecraft – there are problems with their 787s, 767s and 737s. You might want to choose your next airplane ride carefully:

Psychohistory for investors; While so many conservatives are transfixed with the latest cultural war outrages of the alphabet people, there is a real crisis building.  John Mauldin, Neil Howe, and others discuss the inevitable coming debt blowout. I am not as optimistic as Howe about the ability of Millennials to successfully and constructively navigate this true crisis, and would rather see the country split than trust the blue Millennials to navigate the chaos to come:

More psychohistory for investors. Please consider this a must-read.  There is a lot more here than just one paragraph, and it’s important:

Buckle up. This is likely to eventually be one of the most important stories of the 21st century.  Flying saucers are real.

As an aerospace weapons physicist, I have had the opportunity of evaluating extensive objective evidence to that effect – and have also had two personal observations of flying saucer flight trajectories that were grossly inconsistent with the best we, the Russians, or the Chinese can do.  These trajectories were consistent with the saucers being able to turn off the Higgs field.

The Higgs quantum field is created by virtual Higgs particle-antiparticle pairs.  This field gives particles both inertial and gravitational mass.  This field warps space and time, so it is really a big deal.  The Higgs particle was discovered at the CERN large hadron collider about a decade ago and had exactly the properties predicted by British Nobel laureate physicist Peter Higgs six decades previously.  We do not have a clue as to how to turn off this field, but it sure looks to me like someone else does.

Turning off this field permits accelerations from rest to hypersonic velocities in an instant, and T-square perfect right angle turns at hypersonic velocities – both of which I have witnessed. It also would allow travel at the speed of light. We are definitely not alone,  Yes, it really is the third decade of the 21st century:
