Did you know
By Bonnie Donovan

In final week’s column, we warned of Chinese government infiltration of America.

The day right after we published the column, we received a report on how, by spying on American businesses, the Chinese military was in a position to make its fifth generation fighter jet. This is the Chinese J20, created by copying the technologies of the American F-22 Raptor. It is important to know that America has in no way sold F-22 raptors to any other nation.

China’s theft of America’s secret technologies occurred suitable right here in America.

The most important designers and producers of the F-22 Raptor had been Lockheed Martin and Boeing, with hundreds of subcomponent suppliers.

For ten years, China has concentrated on stealing the technologies in the F-22, and they have been astonishingly profitable. In this way, they managed to decrease the technological gap among America and China by ten to 15 years.

On the subject of new technologies, did you know? was exposed to the energy of a mixture of artificial intelligence technologies, combined with lots of drones. We have discovered how this mixture can supersede human efforts for each very good and evil.

Artificial intelligence and drone technologies are building swiftly. Despite the fact that not feasible now, envision a day when 4 massive container ships — with genuine papers and controlled by artificial intelligence — cruise hundreds of miles outdoors US territorial waters, along the US Pacific and Atlantic coasts.

At two o’clock in the morning, the doors of their containers open. From every single ship, hundreds of AI-controlled drones soar and fly more than each big city on the East and West coasts. Boston, New York, Washington, Miami, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego. What will drones provide to the millions of men and women who reside there?

Many balloons can fly, undetected, more than US airspace. How about 4 ships in pairs, hundreds of miles apart on two oceans, hidden amongst hundreds of other individuals?

On the other hand, the reader of Did you know? left a copy of 46 pages of incredibly detailed and incredibly individual privacy inquiries known as the “American Neighborhood Survey” that they received in the mail.

It is administered by the Census Bureau and mandated by your US government that recipients are essential by law to respond to.

Did you know? does not know to what complete use the collected data will be. It could be a test for like these inquiries in future, complete census surveys.

Not only are recipients essential to reveal the most private facts of their individual lives, they are also essential to determine themselves by name.

Failure to comprehensive and return the survey or delivering incorrect answers will outcome in heavy fines.

This is not a census survey, as it was sent to only three million households, out of 123.six million in America, but it is currently right here in Santa Barbara.

I hope you do not get it.

This survey is created not only to determine you, but also to examine each aspect of your life and the lives of your loved ones. Your life history, your employment and comprehensive economic scenario are incorporated and substantially much more.

If this is a test for a complete census, the government could have all the data it desires to set up a social credit method to handle person behavior, equivalent to the a single now in spot in China.

Did you know? also shared a new Pepperdine University promotional video released by the Malibu college for its current 25th anniversary. It options Ronald Reagan in 1976 when he was asked to create a letter that would be opened in one hundred years. Watch the promotional video “Shaping the Globe for the Subsequent one hundred Years” on Pepperdine’s YouTube channel —

I invite you to take a handful of minutes (only 3!) to watch the video that starts with a familiar voice.

This quick video is primarily based on a single of Mr. Reagan’s most common radio addresses from September 1976. Pepperdine very first discovered of this text by reading Mr. Reagan’s words in “In His Personal Hand,” a book co-edited by a single of the university’s newest faculty members, Dr. Kieron Skinner.

President Reagan was asked to create a letter to be placed in a time capsule to be opened in 2076 in Los Angeles. He was asked to mention in the letter some of the most significant troubles facing the United States in 1976.

What he wrote in 1976 (47 years ago) could nevertheless be now.

Beneath are excerpts of what he mentioned.

“Think about that for a moment.

“What do you place in a letter that will be study one hundred years from now — in 2076?” Men and women who study it will ‘live in the globe we helped shape.’

“Will they study the letter with gratitude in their hearts for what we have completed, or will they be indignant since the legacy we left them was human misery?”

“The largest trouble facing the United States in 1976 was the option among continuing the policies of the previous 40 years that had led to larger and larger government, much less and much less freedom, redistribution of earnings by way of confiscatory taxation, or attempting to get back on the original course that had been set for us by the founding fathers.

“Will we pick fiscal duty, restricted government and freedom of option for all our men and women?” Or will we enable an irresponsible Congress to set us on the path our English cousins ​​have currently taken? The road to financial ruin and state handle of our incredibly lives?”

“On the international stage, two excellent superpowers are facing every single other with nuclear missiles at the prepared – prepared to bring Armageddon to the globe.”

“These who study my letter will know whether or not these rockets had been fired or not.” Either they will be surrounded by the very same beauty we know, or they will sadly wonder what it was like when the globe was nevertheless lovely.”

“If we face the challenge we face right here now, these who open that time capsule one hundred years from now will do so in peace, prosperity and in the end individual freedom.”

“If we do not have a rendezvous with destiny, the letter will almost certainly in no way be study – since they will reside in the globe we left them, a globe exactly where no a single is permitted to study about person freedom or freedom of option.”

“Will we pick fiscal duty, restricted government, and freedom of option for all our men and women?”

Bonnie Donovan writes “Did you know?” column in conjunction with a bipartisan group of regional citizens. It seems on Saturdays in the Voices section.
