“They deliberately engineer addiction to the services they provide,” Soros said. “This can be very harmful, particularly for adolescents. There is a similarity between internet platforms and gambling companies. Casinos have developed techniques to hook gamblers to the point where they gamble away all their money, even money they don’t have. Something very harmful and maybe irreversible is happening to human attention in the digital age. Not just distraction or addiction: social media companies are inducing people to give up their autonomy.”
Well, Soros would know about gambling: after all, he made his billions, by gambling in the casino of the financial markets. It worked out great for him, turning him into a fabulously wealthy plutocrat afforded the platform to pontificate pompously to his fellow elitists at Davos, and to indulge his personal political predilections by throwing his money at liberal causes.
The CEO of fast-food restaurant Jack in the Box said “it just makes sense” to replace cashiers with robots due to the minimum wage increase in California. “As we see the rising costs of labor, it just makes sense” to swap cashiers with kiosks where customers can order their food themselves, CEO Leonard Comma said Tuesday at the ICR Conference in Orlando, Fla., Business Insider reported.
‘Police State On Steroids’: Sheriff Makes Disgusting Video Bragging About Using a Small Army to Bust Kids With Weed
The Clay County Sheriff’s Department just used a small army of troops and MRAPs to bust some kids with a little weed and they are bragging about it on video.
Orange Park, FL — The Clay County Sheriff’s Department is receiving heavy backlash on social media this week after making a video of a SWAT raid in which hundreds of thousands of dollars of police resources were used to bust a handful of kids who had some marijuana.
In the ominous video that looks more like a terrorist organization threatening its enemies than public servants solving crimes, Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels taunts his massive militarized police army and how it was just used to kidnap a bunch of young people for having marijuana.
Masked men carrying AR-15s, multiple Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles equipped with battering rams, and what looked like an entire platoon of tactical soldiers were all dispatched Friday morning to the home to serve a narcotics search warrant.
In the video, Daniels claims his raid netted him 15 arrests. However, according (more…)

Before the New Year, DPRK leader Kim Jung Un announced that his country had finalized the remaining outstanding components needed for its functioning nuclear deterrent. Depending on which way you look at this, it could either mean peace and stability for the region, or it could be a prelude to a major war – pitting a bellicose U.S. Administration against what CNN affectionately calls “the Hermit Kingdom.”
What Kim actually has in terms of operational nukes, or even an ICBM delivery system is anyone’s guess. One thing is absolutely certain though: U.S. desperately needs an enemy on the Pacific front to justify its military occupation of Japan and South Korea, but also in order to justify its climbing defense budget, now topping $700 billion per year – and expected to rise to over $1 trillion by next year.
North Korea is much more profitable to the U.S. with its military industry as a “threat”, than it is as a non-threat. The real target, however, is China, and as the U.S. cannot directly confront China (more…)
Self-described psychic Susan Rowlen released a video detailing her predictions for the coming year. One of her most alarming predictions is that she says North Korea will succeed in sending a missile to the US at some point in the coming year.
But don’t fret just yet.
So what exactly does psychic Rowlen see occurring during the remainder of this year? “Interesting enough, I wanna start off by talking about the tax reform,” she begins. “There’s a lot of hype and there’s a lot of communication of this and that, people going back and forth, yay or nay, some people love the tax form some people don’t. I am here not to take sides, OK? But I am gonna just tell you what I think,” she says.
“The tax reform with the tax rate going for corporations to 21%, that versus what they’ve been paying at the 35%. Now, what is it gonna do to the economy? I actually think it’s really going to help the economy. The reason I see this is because it is going to leave room for job growth. When the corporations can save money on taxes, (more…)
