Robots Could ‘Threaten Humanity’ And Will Be Physically Stronger Than Humans “In The Next Few Years”, Warns Scientist

Experts claim robots could even be classed as an “invasive species” due to their rapid evolution and increased ability to consciously make decisions

Robots could ‘threaten our existence’ and even become physically stronger than humans “in the next few years”, according to new documentary.

Experts claim robots could even be classed as an “invasive species” due to the fact they are evolving at such a rapid rate.

And according to a new BBC science documentary into their evolution, technology is advancing to the point of allowing robots to consciously make decisions.

Science experts appearing on the show, Hyper Evolution: Rise of the Robots, claim this poses a far greater threat to humanity than that depicted in movies such as The Terminator.

Former CIA Director Calls For A Coup If Trump Fires Mueller

In the most vocal opposition to president Donald Trump yet, former CIA Director John Brennan said that if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president orders, as they would be – in his view – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch.

“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum, effectively calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller.

9 Key Claims In Kushner’s Statement Debunking The Russian ‘Collusion’ Narrative

“Donald Trump had a better message and ran a better campaign, and that is why he won. Suggesting otherwise ridicules those who voted for him.”

On Monday, President Trump’s son-in-law and key advisor Jared Kushner released an 11-page statement systematically debunking the allegations involving him regarding Team Trump’s supposed “collusion” with the Russian government during the campaign and transition. Just after Kushner gave his statement to a Senate investigative committee, he held a press conference outside the White House in which he unequivocally stated that he “did not collude with Russia” nor did he know of anyone in the campaign who did.

“Let me be very clear, I did not collude with Russia nor do I know anyone in the campaign who did so,” Kushner told reporters. “Since the first questions were raised in March, I have been consistent in saying that I was eager to share any information I have with the investigating bodies, and I have done so today. The record and documents I have voluntarily provided will show that all of my actions were proper and occurred in the normal course of events of a very unique campaign.”

In his remarks, he also took a moment to smack the media and the Democrats for using the Russian “collusion” narrative as an attempt to dismiss the success of Trump’s campaign and undermine the legitimacy of the free and fair democratic election.

“Donald Trump had a better message and ran a better campaign, and that is why he won,” Kushner said succinctly. “Suggesting otherwise ridicules those who voted for him.”

Below are the key claims Kushner makes in his 11-page statement.

Intolerance: Winner of Makeup Competition Disqualified Over Pro-Trump Social Media Post

The facts of this case seem to be pretty straightforward: A talented makeup artist from Kansas won a national contest, entitling her to a swanky trip to Los Angeles and a generous gift card.  After the decision was rendered, it was revealed that the victor was — gasp — supportive of President Trump, an irrelevancy that nevertheless led directly to the rescission of her crown.  In End of Discussion (of which there’s a new paperback edition with fresh content arriving on August 1st), Mary Katharine Ham and I decry the hard Left’s exhausting and obnoxious efforts to politicize every aspectof American life.  This is an egregious example of that phenomenon, wherein a woman who won a competition fair and square, on the entirely non-ideological merits, is being punished for thoughtcrimes.  Rich Lowry’s wry observation about the kerfuffle is an understatement:

U.S. Agency Promoting Trade With Iran Despite Trump Opposition

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is promoting increased trade with Iran, despite clear opposition to this policy by the Trump White House, according to multiple sources who described the agency’s behavior as rogue and part of a lingering effort by the former Obama administration to promote international trade with the Islamic Republic.

A July report released by USDA praises the Obama administration’s efforts to open trade with Iran following the landmark nuclear agreement that dropped major sanctions on the Islamic Republic. The report contradicts White House policy on Iran, which has taken an increasingly hardline against increased relations with Iran under President Donald Trump.

The report is being viewed by administration insiders and regional experts as the product of efforts by the former Obama administration to promote positive propaganda about Iran in a bid to boost support for the Iran deal.

Amazon Juggernaut Sets Its Sights On Its Next Victim: The Middleman

  • The growth of Amazon has the potential to disrupt “middlemen,” particularly in the industrial space.
  • Amazon Business now has 300,000 registered corporate buyers and recently surpassed $1 billion in sales.
  • Stocks like W.W. Grainger and Fastenal could come under pressure from Amazon, analysts say.

Before it was Amazon killing the retailers. Last week it was Amazon disrupting appliances. Now there’s a broader concern: Amazon has the potential to disrupt the middleman in general, particularly those that work in the $7 trillion business-to-business (B2B) space.

Here’s the issue: If you don’t make the object you are selling, or don’t have some sort of intellectual property, or solve a pain point for a customer, then you’re just a middleman, and you are increasingly more vulnerable. The concern is that these middlemen will start losing volume because sales in general are going to the internet and because it’s increasingly difficult to get pricing.

Kushner: ‘I Did Not Collude…I Have Been Very Transparent

White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner delivered rare public remarks Monday after providing testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on the subject of Russian collusion.

Echoing claims he made in a written statement released Monday morning, Kushner contended that he has not acted inappropriately with Russia and has been fully transparent throughout the investigation into Trump’s campaign.

“Since the first questions were raised in March I have been consistent in saying that I have been eager to share any information I have with the investigating bodies, and I have done so today,” Kushner said during his public statement at the White House. “The records and documents I have voluntarily provided will show that all of my actions were proper and occurred in the normal course of events in a very unique campaign.”
