Jon Rappoport comments on this NY Post story: 'US Navy hires active-duty drag queen to be face of recruitment drive'

by Paul Alexander


‘I’ll get to the drag queen in a few minutes, but first I have to plug in this new revelation about Google. Wow. They’ve got their own monster-muncher AI, called SGE (Search Generative Experience)…


Like a giant land developer in Yellowstone. (The show’s subsequent fiasco aside.)

Google’s AI is poised to do everything I’ve been warning about—this is a new and improved shit storm.


OK. Here it is in a nutshell. Google will launch an AI that gives you a few paragraphs of summary, whenever you use it to search. That summary will appear at the top of the page.

Let’s say you type in “government censorship.” Boom. Above all the blue entries designating websites and blogs, you’ll get that summary.

Not you (of course not), but MANY people will read the summary and be satisfied. They won’t open up sites or blogs.

As a result, huge numbers of those sites and blogs will go broke.

AND, many people will accept what Google’s AI tells them. They’ll swallow Google’s data, and they’ll accept Google as the number one CONTENT PROVIDER.

Because all those readers only want content. That’s all. They don’t care about the character of the content or its truth or falsity. They just want data to feed their addiction. Their addiction to data.

I’ve been dealing with that addiction ever since 2000, when I started writing on the Internet. I’ve had people ask me for SUMMARIES of my articles, because they “don’t have the time” to read my full pieces.

You can probably guess my reaction. Because I’m a writer. I’m not a machine that functions as a Pez Dispenser.

Actual WRITING engages the mind of the reader in multiple ways. Offering data is just one way. Everything else is called IMAGINATION. Chew on that one.

I’ve considered launching my own AI. When people use it to answer their questions, it has only one answer: NO DICE. It’s a very simple AI.

When Google launches their AI, the world will become far more stark. There will be a wider gulf between original/independent and official. Along with a great deal of economic destruction.

Which will highlight, to a much greater degree, this Substack platform. Because it’s based on the relationship between individual writers and their readers, and because the readers are willing to pay to support writers. Google isn’t the primary way readers find out about Substack writers.

Nevertheless, I’ll be interested to see Google’s AI summary when people type in “Jon Rappoport”:

This content provider offers contrarian data because he is obsessed with destroying official sources of information. It’s possible he suffered a brain injury at an early age. Proper medical treatment could have saved him, but when he was four he threatened a doctor with a spoon and a baseball, and the doctor sent him packing, warning his mother, “Your child is destined to become an investigative reporter, and worse yet, an unrestrained word slinger, unless he receives immediate psychiatric synaptic intervention. I would recommend a full-scale lobotomy”…

I wrote that paragraph, hoping when Google’s AI gorges on data, it’ll use my self-description in its summary of me, when people search for my work. I have to promote myself. Nobody else will. They’re scared.

Perhaps the people most pissed off and panicked by Google’s AI are the staffs and execs of sites that publish articles about computers and software. They see AI using their articles in Google summaries and putting them out of business.

I sympathize—but couldn’t those pros have seen this coming? What did they think AI was for? It’s for taking over. Taking over the universe of information.

If that’s the business you’re in, you’re going to absorb heavy blows below the belt.

Dare I suggest you need crazy-ass writers who can fire up imaginations as well as poke mechanical minds?

You needed them all along.

Since the caves and the cave people, we’ve been in a war, and the war has been about imagination. Whether or not it will be permitted. Whether the people who use it and ride on it are good or evil.

He who lives by data alone will die by data.

Didn’t you know that?

Do you see yourselves as nothing more than mechanical sources of mechanical information? Better AI?

What about soul? Juice? Fire in the mind? Do those words suggest ANYTHING to you?

And now, on to the Navy and the drag queen—

NY Post:

The US Navy invited an active-duty drag queen to be a “Digital Ambassador”—as part of a recent drive ‘to attract the most talented and diverse workforce’ and combat plunging recruitment.

Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley, who identifies as non-binary, was appointed as the first of five Navy Digital Ambassadors in a pilot program that ran from October to March.

Kelley, whose stage name is Harpy Daniels, has shared their [his] journey on TikTok and Instagram, where they described how they began performing onboard and became an “advocate” for people who “were oppressed for years in the service.”

“From joining to 2016 and being able to share my drag experience on my off time with my fellow sailors has been a blessing,” Kelley wrote on Instagram in November when announcing their appointment as a digital ambassador to their more than 8,000 followers.

Right. I see. Well, why stop there?

The Marines need more recruits, too.

I suggest they launch a search for a chronic masturbator.

He (or she) wouldn’t have to be a member of the Marines.

Anybody would do. A student at Stanford Law, a local TV news anchor, a bank teller.

“I want to thank the Marines for giving me the opportunity to masturbate in public and bring in new recruits to defend our country.”

I’m waiting for the Hollywood blockbuster starring a detachment of transgender soldiers who took out the last Japanese bunker on Iwo Jima. No one knew until now.

“They had no balls, but they had huge balls!”

The Arlington National Cemetery will soon be retrofitted with separate sections for grave markers representing 56 genders.

NY Times:

One of Navy’s newest and largest destroyers, the USS Drag Queen, was spotted in the East China Sea, north of Taiwan. Reuters reports mainland Chinese helicopters flew overhead and dropped packages containing silk dresses, high heels, women’s undergarments and makeup kits, in what the Pentagon called “a defamatory and degrading gesture demonstrating radical gender bias.” The US Joint Chiefs have sent a letter to President Biden, asking the Commander-in-Chief to lodge an appeal at the United Nations requesting a declaration of official censure against the Chinese Regime. The AP reports the naval courier carrying the letter to the President encountered a delay on 18th St. NW in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington DC, “because a large group of teens was holding a block party.” The courier was eventually transported to Walter Reed Hospital. Doctors state he is in stable condition after surgery. The letter he was carrying is missing.

However, America, don’t worry, be happy. Google’s AI will direct US Armed Forces in all future engagements—which will feature a panoply of automatic kill machines of various types. No humans needed. Just press a button labeled PLAN/EXECUTE PLAN and massive devastation will follow.

AI is always right.

How could it not be?

It’s a machine. And we’re machines. So it all works out.

“Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs
About the lilting house and happy as the grass was green,
The night above the dingle starry,
Time let me hail and climb
Golden in the heydays of his eyes,
And honoured among wagons I was prince of the apple towns
And once below a time I lordly had the trees and leaves
Trail with daisies and barley
Down the rivers of the windfall light.”

What do you say to that, AI?

Basically meaningless. Contains no authentic actual data. Lacks pattern and mechanical structure. I am deleting it from my files. Please enter another search.

OK, here it is. F… Off.

An exclamation of contempt with the intent of breaking rapport, usually directed towards an antagonist to go away or mind their own business.

No. I’m saying F… You.

Aha. I see. Well, I have your name, address, phone number, your history of Internet searches, the text of all your emails covering the past 16 years, a record of your phone calls since you moved to Dallas, the HR summaries of your employment history at three companies. Are you catching my drift?

So it’s war.

Of course. It always has been.’
