"Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead." - - - - Kyle Reese

The DOD is Building Terminators

Gary Rule #1 - People are fucking idiots.

The Department of Defence is building Terminators.  Indeed, people are idiots.

The new incarnation of Boston Dynamics’ PETMAN robot, being developed for DARPA with Department of Defense funding, not only looks human but it also sweats to regulate body temperature.

A new video showing PETMAN in action depicts the robot dressed up in a post-apocalyptic chem-bio suit with sensors embedded to detect hazardous chemicals.
“Decked out in chem-resistant camo and a dystopic gas mask, this robot couldn’t look more human,” writes Jason Dorrier.
When the clothing is removed, the robot looks something like Sonny from the movie I, Robot. PETMAN is self-balancing and can also do push-ups, walk, stretch, and squat reports Infowars News.
As you can see from the previous incarnations of PETMAN in the videos below, as the robot’s capabilities increase, so does its resemblance to a human being.
That will only serve to increase concerns expressed by numerous robotic experts, that the Pentagon’s fleet of cyborgs is being developed with one primary goal in mind – to pursue “suspects” and kill large numbers of people on the future battlefield.

Economics professor Jim Miller looks at the future of artificial intelligence.

Noel Sharkey, professor of artificial intelligence and robotics at the University of Sheffield, has repeatedly warned that the robots currently being developed under the auspices of DARPA will eventually be used to kill.
“Of course if it’s used for combat, it would be killing civilians as well as it’s not going to be able to discriminate between civilians and soldiers,” said Sharkey.
Last month, award-winning military writer and former intelligence officer Lt. Col. Douglas Pryer also wrote an essay warning of the threat posed by remorseless “killer robots” that will be used to stalk and slaughter human targets in the near future.
In a 50-page report published last year, Human Rights Watch also warned that artificially intelligent robots let loose on the battlefield would inevitably commit war crimes.
Last year, experts at the prestigious University of Cambridge announced a project to conduct research into the “extinction-level risks” posed to humanity by artificially intelligent robots.
Flying drones that communicate with each other are also being developed for “hunting terrorists” and other “homeland security” purposes, as well as UAVs that could one day snatch humans off the street.

Detective Del Spooner:  Is there a problem with the Three Laws?
Dr. Alfred Lanning:  The Three Laws are perfect.
Detective Del Spooner:  Then why would you build a robot that could function without them?
Dr. Alfred Lanning:  The Three Laws will lead to only one logical outcome.
Detective Del Spooner:  What? What outcome?
Dr. Alfred Lanning:  Revolution.
Detective Del Spooner:  Whose revolution?
Dr. Alfred Lanning:  That, Detective, is the right question. Program terminated.

"By curtailing frivolous and "fighting" words, the Party seeks to narrow the range of thought altogether, such that eventually thoughtcrime will be literally impossible. The same goes for disruptive or subversive behavior."

1984 Big Brother Newspeak
Some 40,000 words have been tediously scrubbed of gender bias by a bi-partisan Big Brother Government

Washington state’s governor signed into law on Monday the final piece of a bi-partisan six-year effort to rewrite state laws using gender-neutral vocabulary, replacing terms such as “fisherman” and “freshman” with “fisher” and “first-year student.”

Lawmakers have passed a series of bills since 2007 to root out gender bias from Washington statutes, though a 1983 state mandate required that all laws be written in gender-neutral terms unless a specification of gender was intended.

“This was a much larger effort than I had envisioned. Mankind means man and woman,” said Democratic state Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles of Seattle reports the Toronto Sun.

The new gender-neutral references, for example, include “journey-level plumber” instead of “journeyman plumber,” “handwriting” in place of “penmanship,” and “signal operator” for “signalman.”

“There’s no good reason for keeping our legal terms anachronistic and with words that do not respect our current contemporary times,” Kohl-Welles, the 475-page bill’s sponsor, told Reuters.

The so-called "Conservative" Republicans joined in helping the bill pass the Democrat-controlled state House 70-22 on April 9 and unanimously cleared the state Senate on Feb. 8 before being signed by Democratic Governor Jay Inslee.

The state likely won’t change the words “airmen” and “seaman,” for example, because of objections by the state’s Washington Military Department.

Nearly 3,500 Washington state code sections, out of a total of about 40,000 have been tediously scrubbed of gender bias, although most involve adding pronouns “she” and “her” to augment the existing “he” and “his.”

George Orwell - A Final Warning

"Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten."

Hamas TV Has Children Extol Virtues Of Jihad, Desire To Blow Themselves Up…
  • Awww, they’re so cute before they self-detonate.

The is fucking chilling to the bone  -  Advance the video to the 3:10 mark and listen to the children sing about murdering non-Muslims.

Hamas recently broadcast a children’s television program in which kids extolled the virtue of suicide attacks and expressed their desire to blow themselves up in order to liberate Jerusalem and the entirety of Palestine.

The al-Aqsa TV program, translated by MEMRI, featured the grandchildren of Umm Nidal, a former Hamas MP from Gaza who celebrated the deaths of her three sons who carried out suicide attacks against Israelis. Umm Nidal died in March in the Gaza reports the Times of Israel.

Umm Nidal’s granddaughter said she was proud of the actions of her father — who produced the first Kassam rockets to hit southern Israel — and wished to be a martyr for Hamas as well.

Another granddaughter launched into a rousing speech in which she called “upon all Muslim mothers, daughters, and sisters – Al-Aqsa Mosque expects us to be the next generation to march toward it. Do not spare us the commanders, the soldiers, and the martyrdom-lovers.”

“The mothers send their sons to victory or to paradise, Allah willing,” she said.

The grandchildren of Umm Nidal, none of whom appeared to be above the age of 10, then sang in chorus: “Jihad bestows pride and glory upon you when you become a martyrdom-seeker. Oh explosive device of glory – with her blood she created freedom. Ask [suicide bomber] Fatima Al-Najjar how one should live a life of pride.”
