Biden destroyed our trust in America’s president. That makes his seizure of AI a danger we can’t accept.
Thomas Jefferson warned us about Joe Biden:
There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual, he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s beleiving [sic] him. This falshood [sic] of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all it’s good dispositions.1000
So did Albert Einstein:
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.1001
We know beyond any doubt that we can’t trust America’s president or believe a single word he says. Our commander in chief and ostensible leader of the free world may be the most untrustworthy, least truthful president in modern history.
This is a man incapable of paying proper respect at a solemn event like yesterday’s anniversary of the 9/11 attacks without embellishing the event with one of his trademark lies, this time with an instantly debunked claim that he was at Ground Zero the day after the terror attacks.
Apparently operating under the assumption that we’re too stupid and gullible to know we’re being had whenever Biden opens his mouth, this morning Americans were assured that we can trust administration oversight of Artificial Intelligence.
No sane, patriotic American trusts anything coming from the Biden White House. Administration plans for AI are no exception; to the contrary, we should fear the consequences for our democratic republic.
One word in the White House release told us what we should expect.
Trust Biden and the Democrats to weaponize AI
In July, Biden and Harris announced their commitment to managing the risks presented by Artificial Intelligence:
Since taking office, President Biden, Vice President Harris, and the entire Biden-Harris Administration have moved with urgency to seize the tremendous promise and manage the risks posed by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and to protect Americans’ rights and safety.1003
Ignoring our knowledge that federal agencies worked with Big Tech and the mass media to deceive the American people and manipulate crucial election information like the Hunter Biden laptop story for the benefit of Biden and the Democrat Party, the administration presented us with three principles to govern the use of this risky technology:
These commitments, which the companies have chosen to undertake immediately, underscore three principles that must be fundamental to the future of AI—safety, security, and trust—and mark a critical step toward developing responsible AI. As the pace of innovation continues to accelerate, the Biden-Harris Administration will continue to take decisive action to keep Americans safe and protect their rights.1004
The White House release promised an Executive Order is on the way to ensure our rights and safety are protected and that AI will be developed in a “safe, secure, and trustworthy” manner. Then it used a word from that July AI statement that should terrify every American who cares about the future of our democratic republic: seizing.
These commitments represent an important bridge to government action, and are just one part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s comprehensive approach to seizing the promise and managing the risks of AI.1005
The seizing of AI’s potential by a president we can’t trust, who appointed his rambling, incoherent, do-nothing Border Czar in charge of overseeing this technology while our weaponized federal bureaucracy bows to his authoritarian whims is more than any American who cares about the future of our country should accept.
Biden’s seizure of AI is a dangerous affront to the intelligence of Americans who already know where this is headed
Among the commitments the administration secured from technology companies is “Earning the Public’s Trust.”1006
It’s anyone’s guess why we would take this seriously, especially after last Friday’s reminder from the Fifth Circuit that the administration threatened social media companies to force compliance with its demands for anti-First Amendment censorship.
If asked, Biden would probably define “trust” with another story about himself that isn’t true. The truth is that administration censorship of dissent and efforts to limit free speech are established record. As the House Energy & Commerce Committee observed after the 2023 State of the Union:
President Joe Biden and his administration have become the censorship party. They’re actively silencing American voices in order to control the narrative to benefit their political agenda—we have the receipts.1007
Biden’s plan to clamp down on the First Amendment with a Disinformation Governance Board was a stark warning and a threat to every American who values free speech and the ability to access truthful information not moderated or controlled by our government. Now imagine an infinitely smarter, infinitely more capable version of Nina Jankowicz that can deal with dissent in a fraction of a microsecond. That’s what the First Amendment is up against.
The Biden-Harris administration’s “seizing” of AI is an unacceptable threat to the First Amendment and free and fair elections. AI has the potential to spread lies, disinformation, and propaganda far beyond what we’re already subjected to. It will open new frontiers for government information censorship and rooting out voices not favorable to the prevailing Democrat political narrative.
Democrats already have a history of fraud and deception. No one was held accountable for their Trump-Russia collusion hoax and they never will be. Knowing they are immune from sanction, instead of relying on a phony dossier AI hands the political left the technology to create the conversations between Trump and Putin Democrats could only dream of.
As Jefferson warned, lying becomes habitual. This is most certainly the case with Joe Biden. He is the last person in America we should trust to have a role in the development of AI. The potential for abuse is practically limitless and that makes it a very dangerous tool in the hands of a president and party who consistently show complete disregard for truth and ethics in government whenever these values conflict with their authoritarian agenda and determination to expand their power even if it means destroying the values that sustain our democratic republic.
