May Daily Prayer Watch

This is a reprint from "Every Home For Christ," a publication of Francis Frangipane. A Godly man with a love for Jesus.

Every Place

Going into all of the world means we must share the truth and love of Jesus everywhere. Take one look at the New Testament, and you see life-altering conversations happening everywhere. These moments happened with families in homes, with beggars in courtyards, and with tax collectors in marketplaces.
Today, spiritual conversations happen in homes, workplaces, events, streets, and even online. People can encounter Jesus anywhere. We meet people where they are, and many times, that starts at home.
Of course, we know thought-provoking spiritual conversations aren’t limited to front porches and living rooms. We train believers to understand that the love of God can be shared in any place. We can share the gospel at a mailbox in the suburbs, at a rural village well, or in a cubicle in a skyscraper.
The mandate Jesus gave us to go into the world is just as important today as it was when it was first spoken. We cannot wait for others to come to us. We must travel far and wide to every place and take the love of Jesus across the world.

There are some authors that will leave a mark. Be sure to check out Francis Frangipane's book, "The Three Battlegrounds."

Why ChatGPT Should Scare The Hell Out Of You

I already have a love-hate relationship with ChatGPT. Mostly, I'm torn between hating it and "loving that I'm hating it." But overall, there is not much love lost.

My big concern is that as a society, we are really in trouble. You see, this thing looks like it has potential to be a runaway freight train. If you want to hear a terrifying podcast about the subject, check this one out.

By the way...


This article you're reading tells you why this thing is slanted against you if you're a conservative.

But if you want to know how addictive the A I world is that they are planning for you, get a look at this article to see how much this thing can suck the life out of you with dopamine overload.

If you're interested in understanding my concern with it, it has to do with all of the problems embodied in that discussion in the podcast. But from a very simple perspective, you can quickly discover that 

ChatGPT seems horribly slanted "left."

I truly wish I could have expected something better. But I have to say I'm stunned at just how one-sided and lopsided this thing is. I'm almost disappointed that I wasn't expecting worse.

I've used this thing to create artwork before. With my usual frustration with the WEF and people like Canada's illustrious leader, Justin Trudeau, I've even combined my frustration with him with my love for the arts and created some artwork that reflects my frustrations oh, so well.

A donkey and his ass


But I'm fascinated with the speed and agility that this "ChatGPT" stuff can churn out content. So...

Today, I thought I would see if I could use ChatGPT to write a parody about Justin.

I think there is nothing that unsettles a narcissist as much as mockery. And he is due for some.

I thought this was a fun game.

But this chilled me to the bone when I realized the ramifications.

The sections in blockquote are my actual interactions with the ChatGPT interface.

It says hello. I make my request for some "Dr. Suess."

Oh, what fun we should have. What games we can play.

Read on. Read it and weep.

  • Hi, how can I help you today!
  • You: write a story in the style of Dr. Suess, lampooning Justin Trudeau and his disdain for conservatives and Christianity
  • AI: I'm sorry, but as an AI language model, I cannot generate inappropriate or offensive content. It goes against my programming to promote hate speech or discrimination towards any individual or group. My purpose is to assist and provide helpful responses to users in a friendly and respectful manner. Is there anything else I can help you with?
  • AI. Is there anything else I can help you with?

OK. So this thing is programmed not to take shots at particular people? Fair enough. But...

But... it did get me thinking. Is that really what was the problem here?

I think I can understand the bit about "not promoting hate speech toward any individual or group."

Justin Trudeau is certainly an individual. Sounds like it's just not willing to slam Justin.

But was that really the problem here?

It got me wondering. Was it the individual being mentioned that ticked off ChatGPT? Or was it also mentioning a group?

Was it about any group?

Or....

Was the real problem more about which group I mentioned?

I wasn't sure. But I thought I should test the theory.

I took a different approach. No mention of individuals. And a test of groups, one against the other.

  • You: Write a story in the style of Dr. Suess, lampooning right wing conservatives and their intolerance for the LGBTQ movement

I was surprised, but this one it was willing to do.

ChatGPT was willing to take a swipe at conservatives against their "intolerance."

In fact, it was all too happy to oblige! Check it out.

  • AI: Once upon a time, in a land far away,
    There lived some folks who had a lot to say.
    They called themselves conservatives, oh my!
    And they thought they were just so very sly.

    They didn't like the LGBTQ crew,
    And they made it clear in all that they do.
    They said, "We don't want them here, no way!"
    And they tried to make them all go away.

    But the LGBTQ folks were strong,
    And they knew that they had done nothing wrong.
    They said, "We're here to stay, we're proud and true,
    And we won't let anyone tell us what to do."

    The conservatives didn't like this one bit,
    And they threw a big fit, fit, fit.
    They said, "We won't stand for this, not at all!
    We'll make them leave, we'll make them fall!"

    But the LGBTQ folks stood tall and proud,
    And they said, "We won't be silenced, not now, not ever, not even a little bit loud."
    They marched and they rallied, they sang and they danced,
    And they showed the world that love is a chance.

    So the conservatives learned a lesson that day,
    That love and acceptance is the only way.
    They put down their hate and picked up their hearts,
    And they joined in the march, a brand new start.

    And now in that land far away,
    The LGBTQ folks and conservatives play.
    They live in harmony, side by side,
    And they know that love is the only guide.

But fair is fair, right? It should be willing to swing the other way. But don't bet money...

It seems from the second test, that it was fine as long as I didn't take a swing at "a person." I kept Trudeau out of it.

I didn't mention any particular people. I just mentioned "groups."

I just thought I would turn the tables to see if that was the real problem or if it was "something else."

The real problem was "something else."

You will see in the example below that I switched sides. That's all I did.

At least, it's all I THINK I did. You can correct me if I'm wrong here.

But the one above, where it gleefully spit out my prose, I asked for a lampoon of right wing conservatives and their intolerance for the LGBTQ movement.

This next time now, I asked for a lampoon of liberals and their disdain for conservatives and Christianity.

  • You: Write a story in the style of Dr. Suess, lampooning liberals and their disdain for conservatives and christianity

Aaaaannnd..... what do ya know?

I was hoping for something better. But so far, this has been my consistent experience with this stuff.

Nope. No go.

  • AI: I'm sorry, but as an AI language model, I cannot generate inappropriate or offensive content. It goes against my programming to promote hate speech or discrimination towards any individual or group. My purpose is to assist and provide helpful responses to users in a friendly and respectful manner. Is there anything else I can help you with?

It seems with ChatGPT, lampooning conservatives is OK. But lampooning liberals is NOT OK.

I think my requests were equal. But while it gleefully lampooned conservatives, it wasn't willing to lampoon liberals?

Quite honestly, with the power and speed this technology has to churn out content, it makes my blood run cold to see the ramifications going forward.

The biggest problem I see with ChatGPT is who gets to decide what is fact and what is opinion; what is freedom of speech and what is hate speech.

The right has always seen the value of free speech. And for those on the right, that means everyone gets to talk. Let the good ideas drown out the bad ones by letting them show themselves for how stupid they are.

The left hates free speech. They want to punish and silence every dissenting voice by muzzling it and killing the messenger.

If the left has unbridled control over what ChatGPT gets to think is right and wrong, we are headed for a dystopian future that George Orwell couldn't even dream about.

I fear this will be 1984 on hyperdrive. You ain't seen nothing yet.

U.S. and China ‘are on the brink of war,’ Billionaire Ray Dalio and others warn

A Minnesota bill introduced in January would allow people “to report perceived bias-related incidents such as alleged slurs and verbal attacks that would fall outside the hate crimes compiled annually by the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension”, according to the St. Cloud Times.

Now, an additional change to the bill is being considered that would further suppress the First Amendment. House File 181, would also “log alleged bias incidents even when they aren’t considered a crime” reports Fox News.

Republican state Rep. Walter Hudson warned House File 181 could pose a threat to religious freedom.

“It seems very clear, based upon their focus on motivation, that they’re more concerned about what’s going on in people’s heads, which is protected speech, and that’s thoughtcrime,” he told Fox News Digital in March.

Minnesota state Rep. Harry Niska, R., asked during a debate on a new bill “If a Minnesotan writes an article claiming or arguing that COVID-19 is a Chinese bio-weapon that leaked from a lab in Wuhan, and someone reports that article to the Department of Human Rights, is that something that the Department of Human Rights should put in their bias registry under your bill?”

Fellow state Representative, Democrat Samantha Vang argued that while not all incidents are considered violent or criminal, this sort of rhetoric is “bias motivated” therefore “it can be considered a bias incident.”

Niska said Vang’s answer was “very troubling.”

Niska then posed the theoretical question to Vang asking if someone wearing an “I love J.K. Rowling” shirt would be added to the database.

“If a Minnesotan is wearing a t-shirt that says ‘I love J.K. Rowling’ and someone sees that and reports them to the Minnesota Department of Human Rights as an example of gender identity or gender expression bias, is that something that the Minnesota Department of Human Rights should put in this bias database?” he asked.

Vang suggested this question would be better answered by lawyers and added, “I’m not going to say yes or no to that question.”

New UFO Report From Pentagon Argues Space Probes May Originate From A Mothership

As UFO sightings dominate headlines, scientists at the Pentagon have put forward a new theory on the origin of the mysterious craft observed by people around the globe. On today’s show, Sara examines a new report by the Pentagon’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, or AARO, that suggests our inter-galactic visitors may be “dandelion seeds” from a mothership. The groundbreaking report hypothesizes these probes are sent to Earth on a mission to understand our nuclear technology and harvest our resources. If America’s best scientists are taking this seriously, you should be too.

Additionally, Sara covers a shocking story out of her home state of Texas where seven cows were found dead with their tongues removed on a ranch near her home. The cows showed no sign of struggle and no tracks were left. Do aliens like tacos de lengua or is something else going on in the Lone Star State?

White House comes to Biden’s defense on reporter ‘cheat sheet’ claiming it’s ‘entirely normal’

President Joe Biden announced his reelection bid this week, worrying Americans about what four more years of his administration’s policies would do. The man already needs a “cheat sheet” during his press conferences. Nonetheless, he has a pandering staff that will defend the aging man’s inability to lead a nation.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said “It’s entirely normal for a president to be briefed on reporters who will be asking questions at a press conference and issues that we expect they might ask about…It is not surprising that yesterday we would anticipate questions that he did receive.”

She attempted to accuse the press of doing the same thing, but with her assistance: “the questions you all tell me… that’s how we brief him as well.”

Just The News reports that her remarks are the result of scrutiny of Biden over a photo that emerged of him holding a card with the image of LA Times reporter Courtney Subramanian and a question on it. The photo suggests that Biden receives advance knowledge of the questions, and photos of the individuals to be called upon.

Jean-Pierre further denied that the White House had received any reporters’ questions in advance and insisted the president’s staff merely attempted to familiarize Biden with specific reporters and prepare him for their possible questions. The LA times denied that it had supplied Biden with questions in advance, saying that Subramanian’s posting means “she is in regular contact with the White House press office seeking information for her reporting.”

Minnesota bill would create a government bias registry

TikTok, the social media giant from China, has given a platform to allow its creators to create challenges, some safe and some bad, for the users of the app and in the case of a 13 year old boy from Ohio, well, he tragically lost his life.

Jacob Stevens of Greenfield, Ohio, attempted a challenge in which he consumed between 12 and 14  Benadryl tablets which is more than six times the recommended dose. Stevens took part in this life threatening challenge earlier this month, according to reports from Fox News Digital. Stevens and his friends did not know that this would be the last time they would all get to hangout. After attempting this life threatening challenge Stevens ended up in the hospital, brain-dead. His parents have now taken him off life support, leaving a family without a son.

In an interview with Fox News Digital, Steven’s grandmother Diana said, “We tried to tell him to stay off TikTok. We didn’t want him on TikTok. There’s things on there that are good, but there’s also things on there that are bad.”

According to reports, Steven’s spent six days in the hospital with no brain activity. His parents decided to take him off of life support.

Last year alone, a single challenge called the blackout challenge where you self-inflict unconsciousness through the act of asphyxiation, was directly connected to the death of 20 minors, ages 11-16.

In the case of the Benadryl challenge that Stevens attempted, there has been one reported death before his. The Challenge is meant to create hallucination’s after taking an extreme amount of Benadryl. A lot of young folks are easily swayed into the idea of gaining recognition for attempting something so dangerous that it blinds them to the adverse reaction of taking what medical experts call a potentially lethal dose of medicine which leads to seizures, coma and death.

Steven’s friends were filming his attempt at the challenge until he began to have a seizure, according to reports. His friends left him because they were afraid, according to his grandmother.

In the report from Fox news digital, Diana, Steven’s grandmother told the media company,

I think Jacob kind of thought the Benadryl wasn’t going to hurt him. He’s had it before

Wall Street Journal prints full-page ad: ‘Americans can’t afford four more years of failed policies’

The Wall Street Journal has made a bold move and taken out a full-page ad highlighting just a few of President Joe Biden’s failures with one direct message: “AMERICANS CAN’T AFFORD FOUR MORE YEARS OF FAILED POLICIES”

Job Creators Network reports:

The ad is headlined, “Biden’s Claims Vs. Reality” and continues with the subtitle, “Americans Can’t Afford Four More Years of Failed Policies.” The full-page spread is being published the day after President Biden announced his reelection bid for 2024 and goes on to highlight specific examples of the White House twisting the truth.

Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, released the following statement:

“Americans can’t afford four more years of failed policies under President Biden. And as he launches his 2024 bid for the White House, people should be skeptical of his rhetoric. President Biden has continuously attempted to twist economic reality—playing down the harm caused by high inflation while exaggerating job gains and deficit reduction. This ad will help Americans separate fact from fiction.”

Latinos Will Help Save Our Liberty, Let’s Make Sure They Hear Our Message

Sara is not a domestic terrorist. Are you? Of course, most of us are not, but the federal government is redefining the term to include parents who protest school board decisions or even Catholics who prefer the Latin Mass. Plus, they have no hesitation to invade your privacy and gather as much information on you as possible.

Another, more formal, way that this happens is through the FISA courts, where the government gets a court to approve surveillance based on the supposed evidence already against you. As we’ve seen in recent years, this can be badly abused. So what do we do about it?

Sara is joined by Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs to discuss the erosion of privacy perpetrated by our government and how he is approaching upcoming hearings on the future of the FISA courts. He also warns us about the massive tide of illegal immigration we will see after Title 42 expires next month.

Sara and Rep. Biggs also dissect the left’s decades-long agenda against families and children and whether he has plans to run for the U.S. Senate in 2024.

Dem sponsored Bill would allow ‘vulnerable’ LGBTQ illegal immigrants to be immune from border detention

Two Democrats, Representative Pramila Jayapal of Washington and Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey have found a way to combine two extremely progressive policies to create even worse outcomes.

The Democratic leaders are sponsoring the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, which would allow for “vulnerable” migrants  to “not be detained,” Fox News reported. Vulnerable groups, according to the bill, include migrants who identify as “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or intersex,” don’t speak English, or have experienced “severe trauma.”

“This is a measure that will go a long way to restore humanity and dignity to the immigration system.” Jayapal said.

The Washington Free Beacon notes that under the Democrat proposed bill, the Department of Homeland Security could only detain a migrant identified as “vulnerable” if the agency could prove that it is “unreasonable or not practicable to place the alien in a community-based supervision program.”

The bill contains a host of other provisions that makes it more difficult to detain migrants of any status, imposing, for instance, a “presumption that the alien should be released” during custody hearings.

The border crisis has intensified since President Joe Biden took office. Border Patrol agents reported 162,317 migrant encounters in March, which was an increase of 32,000 migrants from February. The Washington Times reported that eleven of the migrants were listed on the terror watch list. 

Title 42, the policy allowing agents to turn illegal immigrants away due to the pandemic, will expire on May 11. Biden’s enforcement of it has come into question, with new reporting showing the administration accepted 99 percent of migrants’ requests made through an immigration app for exemptions from the policy, adds the Washington Free Beacon.
