There’s a lot of conflicting talk and dissenting opinions on the uses and dangers of artificial intelligence. Some believe it’s the answer to all problems, others have doubts that machinery can ever truly become sentient, at least in the way it is depicted in movies, and others still believe that it will usher in a totalitarian dystopia the likes of which we can barely fathom, while some claim that the key, as with all tools, is how it’s used.
I do not claim to be an expert on artificial intelligence, far from it. I will stick to my wheelhouse when it comes to this topic and comment only on how it can be applied to social engineering, governance, surveillance, and inevitably, cultural hypnosis.
You are probably at least aware that OpenAI’s ChatGPT is experiencing a surge in popularity, with people using it for a variety of purposes, ranging from Bible study to inquiring how best to navigate a break-up. What is perhaps more eye-raising is that the same A.I. is generating art and even photography, winning competitions against individuals who’ve spent their entire lives honing their craft.
OpenAI CEO Sam Altman recently testified in front of a U.S. Senate Judiciary subcommittee regarding the recent rise of artificial intelligence (A.I.) and the potential for disruption to numerous industries. The so-called Godfather of A.I. recently quit Google because he wanted to speak openly about the dangers posed by A.I.-generated deep fakes.
In his statements, Altman said, “the regulation of A.I. is essential.” calling for what he’s termed “appropriate safety requirements, including internal and external testing prior to release.”
However, Altman stopped short of calling for complete government regulation, instead stating that governance must be “flexible enough to adapt to new technological developments” while balancing “incentivizing safety while ensuring that people are able to access the technology’s benefits.”
Is this an honest concern from Altman, or are there ulterior motives here?
Some observers have noted that Big A.I. may fear the rise of open-source A.I. models and thus call for licensing schemes that place extra burdens on creators of open-source software. Additionally, raising and promulgating the idea that A.I.-generated deep fakes are coming down the pike indicates to me the possibility of a sort of narrative shielding if/when actual hard video evidence comes out against the various deep-state players. (IE: ‘Oh, that’s not real surveillance footage from Epstein Island, that pesky Russian A.I. is generating deep-fakes again!’) I know this example is a stretch, but it gets the point across.
Regardless of the motive, Altman is yet another voice joining the growing chorus of A.I. advocates who are calling for the regulation or licensing of artificial intelligence. The CEO’s concerns have now led to politicians and policymakers warning about the dangers of not regulating the technology.
During a recent Senate hearing on A.I. Senator Josh Hawley compared the A.I to the creation of the printing press and the nuclear bomb. Hawley stated that this may lead humanity to two potential futures: one in which A.I. empowers humanity, or one with a “huge technological breakthrough,” but with “severe, terrible” consequences.
But all of the strategic maneuvering aside, there is a deeper concern beyond big A.I. using manipulative and subversive means to bring about “regulations” that clear the competitive field, and that bigger concern was voiced by Elon Musk in his recent interview on Tucker Carlson.
(The whole clip is interesting, skip to 5:10 if you’d like to get straight to the point.)
The speculators of the conspiracy world have been saying that the “cabal” wants to create an “A.I God,” or what Elon calls an “Artificial Super Intelligence”, what seemed like a wackadoo, far-out, hyper-imaginative concept just a few years ago is now all but verified by Elon Musk’s account and the public statements of Larry Page and others.
At the time of the Musk-Page falling out, Google had just acquired DeepMind, the UK-based AI research lab. Musk said that Google’s approach to AI was that it had “great potential for good, but there’s also potential for bad.”
Musk co-founded OpenAI in 2015 alongside other tech captains of industry, including LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, Y Combinator founding partner Jessica Livingston, PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, and machine learning expert Ilya Sutskever.
Authors Note: Whether or not the above-mentioned are part of a more organized and clandestine rollout of A.I. or whether these are simply individuals playing out their lives is for the reader to decide. I am not here to craft theories I have no evidence to support, and I am still reserving my judgment on Elon Musk for the moment.
I bring this whole concept of Big Tech elites wanting an “A.I. God” up only so that what I am about to mention is given the proper context.
The Bilderberg Group met in Lisbon, Portugal this year with Artificial Intelligence being the meeting’s primary topic. Coincidentally, only days after testifying in front of the U.S. Senate, Sam Altman attended the meeting of European Royals and international elites.

The meeting included a variety of globalist players, including Stacy Abrams (failed US politician), Albert Bourla (Pfizer CEO), Borge Brende (WEF President), and Jen Easterly (director of US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency), just to name a few of the attendees that caught my attention. Altman was joined in Lisbon by fellow A.I. proponents and CEOs, including Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Deepmind’s Demis Hassabis, and former Google CEO and current chair of the Bilderberg Group Eric Schmidt (that’s right, the former Google CEO is chairing the notorious Bilderberg Meetings).
The Bilderberg Group has typically been fingered as one of several subversive policy-creation think tanks that you might equate to a modern global shadow government, and are believed to have had a hand in shaping international relations over the better part of the last century. Some have claimed that the closed-door meetings of the Bilderberg group are where machinations are born, only to be shown in a more public-facing way the following year at the World Economic Forum in Davos. Many powerful Deep State players have been present at Bilderberg over the decades, the perfect historic example being foreign policy wizard and warmonger Henry Kissinger.
Eric Schmidt seems to be filling the vacant role of the classic “baddies” that conspiracy researchers of yesteryear spent their lives exposing; David Rockefeller, Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Herman Khan, to name a few.
As laid out in The Last American Vagabond report in February 2021, the Biden Administration assigned Schmidt to head the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI), or the A.I. Commission. According to a December 2022 report from Politico, Schmidt was funding the salaries of more than two dozen employees in the Biden administration. Since at least March 2022, Politico has outlined how Schmidt’s fingerprints were all over the Biden administration.
People try to make the claim that the Bilderberg Group is a shadow of what it once was, but the industriousness of Eric Schmidt as detailed above suggests that the Group still has its tendrils in the various halls of power, whether it be the board room or the Oval Office.
It shouldn’t seem like too much of a stretch to deduce that Schmidt’s role as the former CEO of Google, a member of the Bilderberg Group, his role in the Biden admin, and his relationship with former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger are more than enough reasons to be concerned with the direction the A.I. conversation is headed.
For those of you in the dark about Kissinger, he is a deep politician who is both a Nobel Prize winner and a war criminal. Kissinger rose to prominence under the tutelage of Fritz G. A. Kraemer and David Rockefeller. Kissinger's greatest hits include a phone call to Richard Nixon in April of 1969 where he advised the use of nuclear weapons in Vietnam, running the Chile coup d’etat in 1973, and a role in the assassination of Orlando Letelier, among countless others. (#)
Unfortunately, a comprehensive history of the meteoric rise of Henry Kissinger couldn’t be done proper justice here but is perhaps a SubStack for another day. Suffice it to say, Kissinger has long been a major player in the international intelligence apparatus and the deep politics of not only America, but the whole world, and he is not only close with Eric Schmidt, but he also attended this year’s Bilderberg Meeting.
Kissinger has attended the Bilderberg meetings off and on since its founding in 1957. Kissinger has claimed that his interest in A.I. came after Schmidt persuaded him to attend a lecture on the topic while at the Bilderberg conference in 2016. The two men also co-authored a book in 2021 titled The Age of AI: And Our Human Future.
The A.I. brigade was also joined by such illustrious figures as NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, BP chief Bernard Looney, Børge Brende, the President of the World Economic Forum, and co-founder of PayPal and Palantir Peter Thiel.
There is a severe lack of transparency surrounding the Bilderberg Group; the public is given a list of potential talking points but almost zero context about what these discussions entailed. Considering the history of the Bilderberg Group shaping important world events, one can surmise that Altman’s presence at this year’s meeting will bode well for his career and the continued success of OpenAI.
So the Bilderbergs are convening to talk about A.I., and Larry Page is expressing interest in an A.I. god, all while the United States economy, and by extension the world economy, is undergoing what is all but confirmed to be a controlled demolition. There may well be an angle here.
Central Bank Digital Currency and “Worldcoin”
The globalist Davos crowd has repeatedly been very open about the kinds of things they would like to force upon civilization: things like A.I. powering biometric digital identities, digital currencies, and the transhuman integration of the Internet-of-Things into our bodies. These ideas seem pretty far out to you and me, but they are being talked about by individuals with the power and connections to actually make these things happen nonetheless.
There are more subtle baby steps occurring that are moving things in this direction. For example, just one day before Altman testified to Congress, the Financial Times reported that Altman was “close to securing around $100 million in funding for his plan to use iris-scanning technology to create a secure global cryptocurrency called Worldcoin.” The Times said three people with knowledge of the deal claimed the team behind Worldcoin is in “advanced talks” to raise the funds in the “next few weeks.”
As with most radical changes, this is being marketed as a solution to a potential future problem. Worldcoin has been promoted as a way to prepare for “the disruption A.I. is anticipated to cause to a number of industries” and the new currency is “focused on helping distinguish between humans and bots by providing a unique ID and providing a universal basic income to offset job losses caused by A.I.”
This is yet another reason for Sam Altman to be out there warning of the scary A.I., not only will it facilitate this regulatory licensing agenda to weed out competition in the field, but it also reinforces the purported need for their specific digital currency.
Altman and friends have described Worldcoin as an “inclusive” global cryptocurrency that will be available to anyone who verifies their “unique personhood” with the “Orb,” a device that scans an individual’s unique iris pattern.
As per Worldcoin’s own website:
The Orb checks that an individual is real and is unique or has not previously signed up for Worldcoin. It does this by capturing and processing images of an individual and their unique iris pattern
The project is being described as a way to offset “A.I. disruption”, but what it really is is a repackaging of the same old Great Reset / fourth industrial revolution malarky we’ve been hearing come out of Davos for years now. It’s a continuation of a push by the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, and a growing number of international governments to move to a global biometric identification system attached to a central bank digital currency (CBDC) that is specifically controlled by the generations-old money lender class.
I’m not proposing that all CBDCs or crypto are bad by any stretch; I’m only saying that the involvement of the Bilderberg Group, Silicon Valley, and the World Economic Forum is cause for concern. It’s not necessarily the tool that is the problem; it is allowing the same international cabal of ruthless failures to be in charge of how it’s used.

I think A.I. is inevitable. The question is, how do we protect ourselves from A.I. over-reach? I have a strong suspicion that Bitcoin will play a leading role in cyber defense. Bitcoin is far more than just digital money, folks ...
I know from being in high tech all my life that Artificial Intelligence is inevitable. However, it makes me think of why so fast? Is there really a monetary gain we don't see in our daily lives? At least G5 is to bring more bandwidth to the masses. AI and G5 can become sinister if we allow these platforms to follow the Dimocratz agenda. High Tech along with Big Pharma, AMA, Dentistry, and etc seem to me to be already sinister in nature of late. There was a time when they want to provide a service or product of benefit not one of an agenda. I am leery of most anything presently. This is no longer a trust worthy world we live in but a world willing to lie and spread propaganda to achieve their end goal of world dominance. These one-worlders think they will be at the top of the heap when their agenda is reached. They will probably be executed by people who don't feel they can be trusted because they betrayed their country. I would and do feel that way presently.
