Kamala Harris as AI czar seems like a bad ‘SNL’ skit
If you were writing a Saturday Night Live skit and you had a … person like Kamala Harris, who laughs hysterically, seems totally irresponsible, and can’t actually make a serious speech in a way that people believe is serious, maybe what you come up with for that skit was the idea of putting her in charge of artificial intelligence, on the grounds that she clearly can’t be in charge of normal intelligence. How the White House staff came up with this idea is beyond me. I mean, it’s not fair to her. She’s already a figure of ridicule. There’s actually a website that has 10 minutes of her laughing, that they pieced together from various speeches. She’s clearly you know, as bad as President Biden’s ratings, and the most recent one was 36% approval, which for a president begins to get really dangerously low, her ratings are worse.
So why would you take a person who’s already got that burden and then give her a title which just guarantees people are going to think is nuts. It’s not fair to her, it’s not fair to the country. We actually do need to take artificial intelligence seriously as an emerging technology, and it’s clearly going to have a huge impact. But there’s no reason to believe that Kamala Harris has a clue. She after all, remember was the czar of the border. The border is a total nightmare. We have people coming across every day. Fox News had this video of literally hundreds of young men and they’re almost all male, young men walking out in open in a public highway, just wandering into America illegally.
And so that may have been her assignment; make sure the border stays open so as many illegal immigrants can come in as possible, but there’s no reason to believe she could do it in any serious way. I think that this is a significant problem for President Biden as he tries to run for reelection. I think as people think about the possibility that in his second term, she could become president, I think it’s an enormous burden on the campaign and I think that it makes it almost impossible for Joe Biden to win.
So just remember the next time you see … the artificial intelligence vice president, that she probably … I don’t think they can get her off the ticket, because she has her own constituency and she has California. But if they keep her on the ticket, I think they’re dooming them to a potentially disastrous defeat.
President Biden must stop appeasing Iran

Scott Rasmussen’s surveys reveal scary statistics about elites
While conducting his national surveys, pollster Scott Rasmussen noticed that a small group of respondents seemed to have different perspectives on major issues than the rest of Americans.

In wake of Jan. 6 Capitol attack, woke FBI surveillance must be fixed
The Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump extremists triggered a massive FBI response and nationwide increased security. In the months after that attack, investigators searched the communications and bank transactions of suspects for the use of code words like “MAGA” and “Trump” as they tried to piece together who had purchased weapons…
After Xi Jinping’s New Year’s speech, will China invade Taiwan?
Chinese President Xi Jinping said in his recent New Year’s address to the Chinese people that “reunification” with Taiwan is “inevitable.” His remarks follow years of increasingly provocative Chinese actions against Taiwan, as well as against other nations in the region, including U.S. allies like the Philippines. International observers have long debated the likelihood and…
