In the wake of Tropical Storm Sandy, the Pentagon has requested that a team of rescue robots be engineered in time for the next natural disaster. The DARPA Robotics Challenge is putting out the call for a synthetic force that can be designed for autonomous thought; yet mitigate the risk to human life when preforming a rescue mission.
According to Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA): Our best robotic tools are helping, but they are not yet robust enough to function in all environments and perform the basic tasks needed to mitigate a crisis situation. Even in degraded post-disaster situations, the environment is scaled to the human world, requiring navigation of human obstacles such as doors and stairs, manipulation of human objects such as vehicles and power tools, and recognition of common human objects such as levers and valves.
DARPA has awarded Boston Dynamics, Inc. a $10.9 million contract to manufacture humanoid robots that are bi-pedal, built like humans and have a sensor head with on-board computing capabilities. Completion of the project is expected for August of 2014.
Another of DARPAs interests into robotics is the Avatar for the allocation of bi-pedal robots and essential super-soldiers and has devoted $7 million of its $2.8 billion 2012 budget to developing interfaces and algorithms to enable a soldier to effectively partner with a semi-autonomous bi-pedal machine and allow it to act as the soldiers surrogate.
These human-controlled robots will be strong enough to clear a room and facilitate sentry control and combat causality recovery. Yet these terminators would easily be the most effective weapon against civil unrest or radical revolutionaries that did not subscribe to the globalist agenda.
DARPAs Autonomous Robotic Manipulation (ARM) program seeks to find ways to utilize different remote robotic manipulation systems that are controlled by humans. This program is divided into 3 aspects:
Hardware: to design dexterous multi-fingered robotic hands
Software: develop complex algorithms for grasping, manipulation and sensory perception
Outreach: beta-testing robotics in public forums to further study robotic autonomy
By offering a $2 million prize, seven teams providing hardware, humanoid prototypes and engineering to provide ideas about how a synthetic rescue force should be created. Not all entries are humanoid; some having 3 legs and one arm, one being the size of a 10 year old boy,
Robonaut, being used on the International Space Station, preforms tasks that are too dangerous or mundane for the astronauts in space. Both Robonaut 1 and 2 were commissioned and created by General Motors (GM) and Oceaneering Space Systems engineers who expedited the technological advancements of these anthropomorphic robots.
In 2010, DARPA revealed a robot at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International Conference in Denver that was interactive in a public forum. Participants would write software and have the robot preform specified tasks. The goal of this event was to show that robots were being developed by the US government to preform dangerous tasks such as disarming an explosive device thereby reducing significant human interaction.
The beginning stages of the global Elites visions for robots to hunt down humans like a pack of dogs are becoming a reality. These robots will be armed and autonomous. Their cranium sensors will be able to detect human breath and the radio waves associated with a human heart beat.
A force of robotic peacekeepers that are programed to become violent without remorse will enable the government to organize and act where human law enforcement may hesitate.
Professor: Reason Itself Is A White Male Construct 2015-07-04 3:55
A philosophy and religion professor at Syracuse University gave an interview to The New York Times Thursday in which he critiqued the notion of pure reason as simply being a “white male Euro-Christian construction.”
Prof. John Caputo was being interviewed by fellow philosophy professor George Yancy for the 13th installment of an interview series Yancy conducts with philosophers regarding racial topics.
Given its emphasis on first principles ...

Jenji Kohan and the Jewish Hyper-Sexualization of Western Culture 2015-07-04 3:33
As detailed in The Culture of Critique, Freud and his followers regarded anti-Semitism was a universal pathology which had its roots in sexual repression. The theoretical basis for this can be found in Freud’s Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality where he linked aggression to the frustration of human drives — especially the sex drive. Kevin MacDonald notes that: ...

Gays Rights May Open Door for Pedophile Rights 2015-07-03 3:31
Democrats have attempted to normalize pedophilia as a sexual orientation.
A recent Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage may soon allow pedophiles to argue they are suffering discrimination.
âUsing the same tactics used by âgayâ rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals,â writes Jack Minor ...
