Latest “Deepfake” Videos Could Cause Massive Shift in Informational Reality

I have seen the harbinger of informational doom, and it is Steve Buscemi’s face on Jennifer Lawrence’s body.

Deepfake

This modern world is growing smaller by the minute as our species continues to push the boundaries of space and of time.

In the realm of space, we are learning more everyday, and we are being surprised along the way with incidents such as our recent bout of “FRB”‘s.

As time goes, however, technology is speeding up the processes of creation in ways that many never thought possible.  Where you once had to carry hundreds of pounds of fragile equipment around simply to take one single photograph, we can now capture, edit, and publish movies all from our cell phones.  Thanks to this widespread use of the technology, the power of the computing systems behind it have been honed as well, leading to the ability to create some of the most stunning visual effects ever.

But, herein lies the creepy part…

While the nation grapples with concerns over the spread of inaccurate and deceptive information online, deepfakes—videos in which an individual’s face is superimposed onto another—continue to advance at a quickening pace.

Now, the new ones are downright terrifying.

And here is just one wildly unnerving example:

This does pose a very real threat to our democracy as well, with the possibility of wholly fabricated videos of our elected or would-be elected officials being released in order to disparage their constituents.

The video’s viral spread online Tuesday comes as numerous U.S. lawmakers sound the alarm over the potential of deepfakes to disrupt the 2020 election. A report from CNN indicates that the Department of Defense has begun commissioning researchers to find ways to detect when a video has been altered.

And, worse still, (as if you wanted to hear that); the widespread creation of “deepfakes” could lead to a further monopolization of the media.

You see, this technology makes anything possible, quite literally.  Networks such as CNN, or platforms such as Twitter, will surely become supposed “safe zones” from these sorts of shenanigans, allowing them to proclaim that they are the one and only truth of the matter.

This is not good for the First Amendment at all.

Furthermore, the widespread knowledge of the possibility of “deepfakes” will undoubtedly be used by some unlucky politician in the coming months, after they are caught on camera saying or doing something stupid, immoral, or worse.  For instance, what if Bernie Sanders had responded to the newly released video of him drunkenly singing in the USSR by claiming that it was a “deepfake”?  What then?

In any case, we are barreling toward a reality where we can only trust ourselves and those whom we take the time to get to know…and there is at least a bit of cozy comfort in that.

Save conservative media!

Bill Clinton Secretly Met With Jeffrey Epstein Madam Ghislaine Maxwell In 2014 — Details

Curiouser and curiouser…

Had Jeffrey Epstein not been killed committed suicide, there’s a decent chance he would’ve spilled some shocking information on Bill Clinton and other high-profile, big-name celebrities, in exchange for a lighter sentence. The world will never see that happen. However, more and more information continues to leak about the former president’s relationship to the convicted pedophile and his madam. From The Daily Wire: Former Democrat President Bill Clinton reportedly had an “intimate dinner” with accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell in 2014, years after she had been accused of procuring minors for alleged child sex trafficker Jeffery Epstein. The dinner happened at Crossroads Kitchen, a high-end vegan restaurant in Los Angeles, according to a report from The Daily Beast, which noted that several other high profile individuals were there after being invited. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eS8aIa0h25s The craziest things seem to happen to people with dirt on Bill and Hillary, don’t they? On the night Slick Willy spoke at the 2020 Democrat National Convention, photos were released showing him getting massaged from an Epstein victim. And by victim, most likely sex slave. From Daily Mail: Bill Clinton grins with pleasure as he enjoys an intimate neck massage with a young Jeffrey Epstein victim in never-before-seen photographs obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com. […] Clinton traveled numerous times on the dead pedophile’s private Jet, the Lolita Express, socialized with his alleged Madame, Ghislaine Maxwell, and faced a slew of sexual misconduct accusations himself during his years in public life.

ESPN Host: ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ Are the Ones Responsible for Violent Riots We’ve Seen

LOL, this guy…

ESPN’s First Take morning show features two outspoken liberal hosts, Max Kellerman and Stephen A. Smith. Neither man is afraid of talking politics on their sports show, despite Americans constantly telling people to leave politics out of sports. If you’re a boxing fan, you know who Kellerman is. The guy is very knowledgable and knows the sport inside and out. Unfortunately, Max often times lashes out and shows the nation just how clueless he is when it comes to politics. On Tuesday, Max decided to go after right-wingers with a claim so ridiculous that you can’t really do much but laugh. WATCH: https://twitter.com/dhookstead/status/1308451193962729473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1308451193962729473%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F You either love or hate Skip Bayless, if you listen to sports talk radio. He’s a character, to be certain. That being said, the former ESPN personality and current Fox Sports talking head has been around all things sports for decades. He knows people. He has connections. According to Skip, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, who openly supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 and has been wildly critical of President Trump since he first took office, is considering running for president of the United States “some day.” You’d have to imagine based on popularity and his name alone, LeBron would snag quite a few votes – similarly to Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger when he ran for governor in blue California.
