Unethical, Irresponsible, Immoral And Illegal Activities/Behavior

This item deals with the demise of morality in our country.  That we are in a rapid freefall of our morality is not errant hype.  It is a fact and is illustrated every single day as we watch the evening news and observe for ourselves activities/behaviors we encounter.  The Founders were far superior than 99 percent of our current crop of politicians.  They warned us that if we lost our moral standards we would lose our country.  That is exactly what is happening.  These items provide the evidence.

This piece summarizes five consequences of the demise of our nation's morals.   http://townhall.com/columnists/johnhawkins/2015/07/25/five-consequences-of-americas-moral-collapse-n2030199/page/full

Proof that the IRS targeted Conservatives.  Freedom of Information act request produced the evidence.   http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-new-irs-documents-used-donor-lists-to-target-audits/?

This item makes a good case for term limits.  Too much evidence exists suggesting temptations confronting career politicians lead to their corruption.  http://townhall.com/columnists/pauljacob/2015/07/26/scandalless-n2030360/page/full

People who do this (invade/disrupt a peaceful and respectful rally) have absolutely no grasp of their own irresponsible/disrespectful behavior.  It is all about them...to he@@ with anyone who doesn't agree with them. http://townhall.com/columnists/michellemalkin/2015/07/24/look-whos-coddling-denvers-social-justice-jerks-n2029532?

Many public schools have lost all sense of right and wrong.  This is a case of banning sodas while promoting and actually doing this totally unethical activity.  Quote: "At 13 different Seattle, Washington public schools children are not allowed to purchase sugary drinks like Coca-Cola (even with their parents consent), but they can be implanted with an intrauterine device (IUD) without anyone notifying their parents!  School-based health clinics in at least 13 Seattle-area public high schools and middle schools offer long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), including IUDs and hormonal implants, to students in sixth-grade and above at no cost, according to Washington State officials.  LARCs are associated with serious side effects, such as uterine perforation and infection. IUDs, specifically, can also act as abortifacients by preventing the implantation of a fertilized egg…"   http//eaglerising.com/21413/seattle-schools-ban-soda-but-give-away-birth-control-without-parental-knowledge/

This is simply incredible.  The DOJ is investigating the group that filmed the videos that has got Planned Parenthood into such deep trouble.  Seemingly to the Obama administration that is more important than investigating an organization which is allegedly (by their own admission) illegally killing babies and selling their body parts.  Quote: "Yes, instead of looking further into the video recording of Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the sale of fetal body parts while drinking wine, the Department of Justice has decided to investigate the ones who pressed play."  http://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2015/07/24/priorities-doj-to-investigate-prolife-group-behind-notorious-planned-parenthood-videos-n2029898?   How can Democrats live with themselves?   http://www.responseaction.com/Article/democrats-unleash-justice-dept-planned-parenthood-video-maker  Just in case you do not already know.  This is a synopsis of the beliefs of the founder of Planned Parenthood.   http://dailysignal.com/2015/07/22/13-things-you-probably-dont-know-about-planned-parenthood-founder-margaret-sanger/?  It is notable that the organization has for the most part carried forward her vision.  President Obama has publically said that Planned Parenthood "...is doing God's work."  Anyone with a conscience would disagree.  Choice vs morality.   http://townhall.com/columnists/billmurchison/2015/07/28/choice-and-morality-n2031137/page/full

Does anyone consider the contents of this conference to be in any way advancing the cause of informing those in attendance with useful information, promoting civil discourse, encouraging morality or having any content worthy of learning?   It was suppose to be an anti-bullying conference but was anything but.  This article explains.   http://dailycaller.com/2015/07/25/at-anti-bullying-conference-iowa-middle-schoolers-learn-about-lesbian-strap-on-anal-sex-fake-testicles/?

It matters not whether Democrats or Republicans are in the majority.  Both tell lies to us and each other as a matter of course. And the media, academia and the elites of society are included. The politicians purpose is to get elected and then re-elected by doing what they have to do to make that happen.  It is not about serving the public. While for most of the so called elitists their purpose is to serve their own self interests.  Their standards of morality are based on what is in it for them.  Unfortunately that attitude permeates so very much of the whole of society.   http://townhall.com/columnists/michaelhausam/2015/07/24/i-am-now-officially-sick-and-tired-of-being-lied-to-n2029959?

This is just a mini example of the mainstream media deceptive reporting and supporting all things liberal/progressive.  Facts are of no interest to them.  Spinning news to fit their narrative dominates everything they do and say.  This is not new.  It has be going on for a long time.   http://townhall.com/columnists/ryanbomberger/2015/07/24/planned-propaganda-and-the-big-hoax-n2029871/page/full

Emaciating manhood, dignity, righteousness, honesty, courage, morality and decency is what the media progressives and so many of the so called advocacy groups do.  This item lays it out using the ESPY's as the vehicle.   http://personalliberty.com/the-lefts-systematic-castration-of-the-american-male/ 

I once had occasion to briefly work with General Clark.  He was an arrogant SOB.  I didn't like him then and even less so now.   http://www.infowars.com/wesley-clark-calls-for-interning-disloyal-americans/   He is a typical arrogant elitist.  Someone so full of himself that he thinks he knows what is best for everyone else and has absolutely no regard for the feelings, ideas and rights of others.  On the other hand, while I did not know this General those that I knew who did held him in high regard.  Here is a short summary of a portion of a recent interview.  http://eaglerising.com/21462/army-chief-blames-obama-for-rise-of-isis/

These people drip with hypocrisy.  Playing the politically correct game trumps truth, justice and unalienable rights.    http://townhall.com/columnists/derekhunter/2015/07/26/a-tale-of-two-deaths-how-democrats-treat-victims-differently-based-on-race-n2030297/page/full

This Makes You Think

As has been noted by multiple experts and even in some of the items I have shared with you, science cannot be considered the "know it all" regarding life on earth and all manner of other things.  Science is a good thing so I am not attempting to denigrate it or the scientists who dedicate themselves to it.  Their record of achievements is enormous.  But in more than a few cases they have been wrong, dead wrong.  This specific item takes on the evolution vs creation debate.  Although it is only a theory evolution scientists treat the subject as if it is a fact.  The problem is that provable facts to support the theory are hard, even impossible, to come by.  They attempt to use micro-evolution to prove their case but that only occurs within species.  There has never been any provable evidence produced that supports macro-evolution which is one species spinning off  to become a totally new and different species.  There have been many claims of evidence but for a variety of reasons they were eventually quietly abandoned. Yet many of these false proofs linger as proofs to true believers.  The harsh reality is that there is no proof available, only speculation.  And, much of that speculation undermines rather than justifies the theory.  Evolutionists, though, fight tooth and nail in defense of themselves and their theory. But they are unable to offer any verifiable proof.  They even insist that only evolution be taught in our public schools without a hint of any other possibility.  But that is a subject for another time.  Check out the link and ask yourself why evolution scientists have not been able to successfully address any these challenges.  One thing that is factual, at least at this point in time, is that evolution is more of a belief system than a scientific theory.  Maybe another theory needs to be considered.

Is the Amazon rainforest MAN-MADE? At least 8 MILLION humans may have lived and farmed the basin at its peak, study claims

It is often held aloft by environmental campaign groups as an example of one of the last remaining regions of unspoiled habitat left in the world.
But instead of being a pristine rainforest untouched by human hands, the Amazon appears to have been profoundly shaped by mankind.
An international team of researchers have published evidence that suggests the Amazon was once home to millions of people who lived and farmed in the area now covered by trees.
The scientists claim the Amazon basin was a major centre of crop domestication that saw at least 83 native species being cultivated to some degree.

What Kerry and Obama Tried to Keep from Congress and the Public: Iran Will Collect Its Own Samples for the IAEA

This week brought the stunning news that Senator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) and Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) had discovered, during a meeting with IAEA officials, the existence of secret side deal between the IAEA and Tehran — a side deal that will not, like the main nuclear agreement, be shared with Congress. So critics of the agreement were understandably eager to hear an explanation from Secretary of State John Kerry when he and other senior administration officials testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday. The hearing produced a new bombshell: In its investigation of Iran’s past nuclear-weapons-related work, the IAEA will rely on Iran to collect samples at its Parchin military base and other locations. As a former intelligence analyst experienced in the collection of environmental samples for investigations of weapons of mass destruction, I found this allegation impossible to believe when I heard Senator James Risch (R., Idaho) make it yesterday morning.

Disastrous Consequences of Lib Indoctrination from the 60s to Obama

Thanks to their WWII generation parents doing the heavy-lifting to save the country, spoiled-brat baby-boomers were free to pursue dreams and to make everything about them. In my youth, it seemed every other week there was a new hot bestseller or seminar in a ballroom – for you, all about you, and more about you.
Meanwhile, at 29 years old, my dad was fathering his five kids and acting as a surrogate dad for my fatherless cousins. How do you feed 10 kids cheap? Mom and Aunt Bummie would fry up lots of chicken necks and backs; fond memories still make me smile.
My wife Mary said she complained as a child, having to wash dishes for as many as 11 people. Her parents routinely took in family and friends in need. That is how people rolled back then, doing whatever needed to be done. Life wasn't just about you.
Then, along came my generation, arrogant and self-absorbed -- hippies verbally trashing their parents and country. These brats have been indoctrinating our kids with liberal garbage for decades. Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and other old hippies continue to undermine America and traditional values.
Churchill said, “If you're not a socialist when you're 20, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 40, you have no brain.” Churchill's point is youths are idealistic.

Criminal Inquiry Is Sought in Clinton Email Account

Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.
The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton's private account contained "hundreds of potentially classified emails." The memo was written to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management.

It is not clear if any of the information in the emails was marked as classified by the State Department when Mrs. Clinton sent or received them.

But since her use of a private email account for official State Department business was revealed in March, she has repeatedly said that she had no classified information on the account.

The initial revelation has been an issue in the early stages of her presidential campaign.


IRS Scandal: It's Dangerous To Be On Wrong Side Of Obama

Corruption: A new batch of IRS documents shows an agency that's more political than practical. Besides harassing groups applying for nonprofit status, it went after donors of existing groups.
Documents produced by the IRS confirm that being on the wrong side of this administration is a dangerous place to be.
Judicial Watch, which used the Freedom of Information Act to pry the documents from the government's grasp, said Wednesday they "confirm that the IRS used donor lists to tax-exempt organizations to target those donors for audits."
Among these groups was the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. That organization "may find itself under high scrutiny," an IRS official whose name was redacted told IRS attorney Lorraine Gardner in an email.
"One can only hope," that unnamed official added.

Donor Lists Were Used by IRS to Target Audits

Judicial Watch says it has obtained documents that show Internal Revenue Service employees used donor lists from conservative non-profit groups to target people for audits.

The group obtained the documents in a Freedom of Information Act request as part of a lawsuit against the IRS.

The records show how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was targeted for possible "high scrutiny," Judicial Watch said.

"These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

First Look: U.S. Dollar Substitute to Go Public on Oct 20th?

The International Monetary Fund is one of the most secretive and powerful organizations in the world.
They monitor the financial health of more than 185 countries… they establish global money rules… and provide “bail-out” assistance to bankrupt nations.
And on Oct 20th of this year, the IMF is expected to announce a reserve currency alternative to the U.S. dollar, which will send hundreds of billions of dollars moving around the world, literally overnight.
According to Juan Zarate, who helped implement financial sanctions while serving in George W. Bush’s Treasury department, “Once the [other currency] becomes an alternative to the dollar, rules of the game begin to change.”
And Leong Sing Chiong, Assistant Managing Director at a major central bank, said this dollar alternative “is likely to transform the financial landscape in the next 5-10 years.”

Some Things To Think About

Whatever your position regarding the recent agreement with Iran regarding its nuclear interests this item will be informative and could well influence your view of the unfolding hyperventilated political machinations that are sure to continue throughout the coming weeks.  I highly recommend you read it to gain a perspective which does not, at least not clearly, come from anyone on either side of the argument in the media or either side of the political spectrum.  See if this information causes you to adjust your thinking.  My wife Sigi found the item and passed it along to me and I am really glad she did. You should be too.  Quote: "I have rarely found anything President Obama has done to be praiseworthy, and believe his domestic policies of Keynesian borrow and spend and incessant statist intervention in capitalist enterprise to be especially deplorable. But finally he has stood up to the War Party——and that could mark a decisive turning point in rolling back Washington’s destructive interventionism and imperial pretensions in the Middle East and, indeed, around the world."     https://www.lewrockwell.com/2015/07/david-stockman/all-hail-barack-obama/

Many consider the close ties between doctors and pharmaceutical companies to be a real problem.  Quote: "In the HPV vaccine article, Hanley reported receiving fees for lectures from “Japan Vaccine” and “the Japanese Expert Board for the Eradication of Cervical Cancer.”  What’s omitted is the disclosure that “Japan Vaccine” is a venture of GlaxoSmithKline; and “the Japanese Expert Board” has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Merck and GlaxoSmithKline. GlaxoSmithKline makes Cervarix vaccine. Merck makes Gardasil."   http://dailysignal.com/2015/07/01/what-you-didnt-know-about-a-doctors-stance-on-the-hpv-vaccine/?

Staying with the theme in the previous item.  This one addresses the insane and unethical  notion that everyone can and/or should be forced by government to be vaccinated.  Quote: Rather, "We need safe vaccines to be made available in order to protect us from the dangerous diseases that once decimated large numbers of people. However, for centuries, the bedrock ethical principle of “informed consent” has dominated the medical field. Medical decisions have always been based on personal choice made in consultation with a trusted doctor. Upholding this basic principle is dependent on the ability to choose and give consent, a fundamental right that is being taken away by legislation such as SB 277 in California."   https://www.lewrockwell.com/2015/07/no_author/crony-pharma-and-vaccinations/

Billionaire Nat Simons is a left wing billionaire who uses his money to influence government officials and policies directly benefiting his bottom line. "Nat Simons controls a hodgepodge of dodgy investment concerns that focus on renewable energy. He wants government not only to finance his business experiments but to harass and limit the effectiveness of other competitors in the energy market. He wants Americans to pay substantially more for gasoline, household energy needs and every other product that requires energy. He wants a carbon tax that would hurt the poor far more than the rich. He is willing to get in bed with the oligarchs who run Russia and certainly do not have the interests of American taxpayers at heart to get the money to pressure the system to produce the outcomes he wants.  That he is a hero of the left and the Kochs are arch-villains tells you all you need to know about the moral vacuity of America’s liberals. How long can even they look the other way?"   http://humanevents.com/2015/07/10/meet-billionaire-hero-of-the-left-nat-simons/?

In the wake of the Charleston, SC killings the Confederate flag has been pulled from store shelves because it is deemed offensive or racist.  But, look at what you can buy.  Does this make any sense at all?    http://teapartyupdate.com/stores-ban-confederate-flag-but-look-what-else-you-can-buy/

After you read this see if you think that Planned Parenthood is, as President Obama said not long ago, doing the "Lord's'" work?   http://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2015/07/14/chilling-listen-to-a-top-planned-parenthood-doctor-talk-about-selling-babies-body-parts-n2025279  This is really, really bad stuff.   http://www.redstate.com/2015/07/14/broken-country/

We all know that 9/11 gave rise to concerns regarding terrorism.  But, should the FBI and IRS be doing these things?   Quote: "It’s already widely known among those who are awake to government corruption that nearly 95 percent of terrorist arrests in the US have been the result of the FBI foiling its own entrapment plots as a part of the so-called post-9/11 War on Terror."   http://thefreethoughtproject.com/creating-crime-fbi-bribes-people-fake-drugs-planes-bust/   And then there is the government harassment of innocent Americans or legal residents.  http://dailysignal.com/2015/07/20/two-business-owners-fight-the-irs-to-get-their-seized-money-back/? 

This is what they routinely do and how they routinely do it.  http://spectator.org/blog/63462/liberal-hate-machine-likens-walker-hitler

The recent exposure of Planned Parenthood's harvesting and selling aborted baby parts has received scant attention from the mainstream media.  Quote: "Speaking of silent support: Where on Earth are the "news" media on this? It's Kermit Gosnell all over again. What's more, they're demonstrating how strongly they back Planned Parenthood and the abortion-on-demand agenda. Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards is a regular and honored guest on MSNBC, and host Lawrence O'Donnell even told her he'd nominate her to be America's ambassador to the United Nations."    http://townhall.com/columnists/brentbozell/2015/07/17/media-fail-to-expose-planned-parenthood-n2026621?  And,  here's more.  Quote: "If you thought things couldn’t get worse for Planned Parenthood — and thus better for practically everyone else — you were wrong. My boss, LifeSiteNews Editor-in-Chief John-Henry Westen, did some digging and found that the fetal organ racket has gotten even more profitable since it was first reported in 1998:  For instance, today, companies such as Stem Express are selling aborted baby livers after processing and getting them down to specific types of derived cells.  Whereas in 1998 the price list had aborted baby livers ranging from $125 to $150, today’s prices for a vial of aborted baby liver cells range anywhere from $488 to $24,250."    http://hotair.com/archives/2015/07/17/planned-parenthoods-very-bad-awful-week-continues/

Democrats decry undercover probe of HealthCare.gov

Senior Democrats pushed back Thursday against an undercover government probe of President Barack Obama's health care law, saying it didn't uncover any real fraud.
Investigators for the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office signed up 11 bogus beneficiaries for 2014 coverage then got HealthCare.gov to continue benefits this year for all but one.
Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said these were "fictitious cases" and the GAO investigators themselves admit the findings can't be translated to the 10 million people getting subsidized coverage through the law's health insurance markets. Wyden spoke at a Finance Committee hearing on the investigation.
But GAO's audits chief Seto Bagdoyan said the investigation exposed real concerns. He said it was relatively easy for GAO's fictitious characters to get and keep coverage, even to get reinstated after HealthCare.gov terminated them. HealthCare.gov seems to put a higher priority on getting people covered than on verifying they are legally entitled to benefits, Bagdoyan said.

Smoking Gun in Hillary Clinton Benghazi Email

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence,” said President Calvin Coolidge, and Judicial Watch continues to prove it, much to Hillary Clinton’s consternation.

Judicial Watch now has information about an email directly tying Clinton, for the first time, to the now-debunked Benghazi talking points used by then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to claim the attack was the result of a “spontaneous protest” gone awry.

Showing contempt for transparency, the Obama State Department is refusing to divulge the contents of the email.

Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit in July 2014 seeking records from Clinton and her top State Department staff about the Benghazi talking points scandal, specifically, copies of any updates and/or talking points given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any federal agency concerning, regarding, or related to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya; and any and all records or communications concerning, regarding, or relating to talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any federal agency.

New Documents Reveal DOJ, IRS, and FBI Plan to Seek Criminal Charges of Obama Opponents

udicial Watch today released new Department of Justice (DOJ) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents that include an official “DOJ Recap” report detailing an October 2010 meeting between Lois Lerner, DOJ officials and the FBI to plan for the possible criminal prosecution of targeted nonprofit organizations for alleged illegal political activity.
The newly obtained records also reveal that the Obama DOJ wanted IRS employees who were going to testify to Congress to turn over documents to the DOJ before giving them to Congress. Records also detail how the Obama IRS gave the FBI 21 computer disks, containing 1.25 million pages of confidential IRS returns from 113,000 nonprofit social 501(c)(4) welfare groups  – or nearly every 501(c)(4) in the United States – as part of its prosecution effort. According to a letter from then-House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, “This revelation likely means that the IRS – including possibly Lois Lerner – violated federal tax law by transmitting this information to the Justice Department.”
The documents were produced subsequent to court orders in two Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits: Judicial Watch v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:14-cv-1956) and Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:14-cv-1239).
The new IRS documents include a October 11, 2010 “DOJ Recap” memo sent by IRS Exempt Organizations Tax Law Specialist Siri Buller to Lerner and other top IRS officials explaining an October 8 meeting with representatives from the Department of Justice Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section and “one representative from the FBI” to discuss the possible criminal prosecution of nonprofit organizations for alleged political activity:

Is Science Always Right?

Science is a great discipline and deserves many of its laurels.  However, it is folly to believe science is always correct, that the scientific method is always applied properly, that all scientists are honest/ethical and the outcomes of scientific efforts are proof positive representing truth for all time.  History is replete with examples of scientific claims of established proofs that later proved wrong.  Today so much of science has been turned into tools elitists and governments use to manipulate people for political or financial gain.  The items in this note serve to illustrate the point.  As always I understand time is precious.  Scan the items provided to find those of interest to you.

What?  I thought the President, the Pope, the UN, Al Gore, and certain scientists were telling us that we are facing a global warming catastrophe.  Now some scientists are telling us that by 2030 the sun will go to sleep and we may enter into an ice age.  Quote: "The Earth could be headed for a 'mini ice age' researchers have warned.  A new study claims to have cracked predicting solar cycles - and says that between 2020 and 2030 solar cycles will cancel each other out.  This, they say, will lead to a phenomenon known as the 'Maunder minimum' - which has previously been known as a mini ice age when it hit between 1646 and 1715, even causing London's River Thames to freeze over."  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3156594/Is-mini-ICE-AGE-way-Scientists-warn-sun-sleep-2020-cause-temperatures-plummet.html  
We all know about the debate between those who claim man is largely responsible for global warming/climate change and those who are skeptical of such claims.  This item is worthy of consideration by both sides of the argument. Quote: "Last month, we are told, the world enjoyed “its hottest March since records began in 1880”. This year, according to “US government scientists”, already bids to outrank 2014 as “the hottest ever”. The figures from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) were based, like all the other three official surface temperature records on which the world’s scientists and politicians rely, on data compiled from a network of weather stations by NOAA’s Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN). But here there is a puzzle. These temperature records are not the only ones with official status. The other two, Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) and the University of Alabama (UAH), are based on a quite different method of measuring temperature data, by satellites. And these, as they have increasingly done in recent years, give a strikingly different picture. Neither shows last month as anything like the hottest March on record, any more than they showed 2014 as “the hottest year ever”.      http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/11561629/Top-scientists-start-to-examine-fiddled-global-warming-figures.html? 

Bad science equals bad models.  Quote: "Greenpeace denies the settled science that bad forecasts mean incorrect theories. Don’t let them change the subject. This is not about some false accusation of conflict of interest. This is about bad science passing for good because it’s politically expedient."  http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2015/02/23/left-panics-over-peer-reviewed-climate-papers-threat-to-global-warming-alarmism/    And where does this bad science lead?  This item provides at least a part of the answer by revealing the political motives consequential from bad science.   http://www.cfact.org/2015/06/11/bonn-update-loss-and-damage-climate-reparation-insurance/?

This Nobel laureate tells President Obama that he is “dead wrong” on global warming.  Ivar Giaever, a scientist who shared the 1973 Nobel Prize in Physics, challenged Mr. Obama in a July 1 speech at the 65th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Lindau, Germany."    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jul/7/nobel-physicist-obama-dead-wrong-global-warming/#ixzz3fL2KwRFS 

A couple of quotes highlight the theme of this piece.  Quote: "By the way, the field of science is not the objective discipline that many people make it out to be as Horace Freeland Judson points out in his book The Great Betrayal: Fraud in Science. Also take a look at Climate Confusion (Roy W. Spencer) and Big Fat Liars: How Politicians, Corporations, and the Media Use Science and Statistics to Manipulate the Public (Morris E. Chafetz)."  and  "Most of the anti-science charge relates to man-made global warming now called “climate change” since the “there-is-no-longer-any-debate-about-global-warming” claim has fizzled. Research on this subject will show that scientists were convinced in the 1970s that global cooling was inevitable, and if you denied it you were – you guessed it – anti-science."    http://godfatherpolitics.com/21025/homosexuality-should-be-rejected-because-its-anti-science/

This item examines the faulty science that led to the giant expansion of psychiatric drugs.  Studies now suggest they either do little but more likely do harm.  Quote: "Depression and other mental health problems are at epidemic levels judging by the number of antidepressants prescribed each year.  According to CDC data,1 one in 20 Americans over the age of 12 report some form of depression, and 11 percent of the US population over the age of 12 is on antidepressant medication.2  This despite overwhelming evidence showing that antidepressants do not work as advertised."  And, "The Low Serotonin Theory Was Never Proven True, Yet Spawned a Booming Market of SSRIs."     https://www.lewrockwell.com/2015/07/joseph-mercola/antidepressants-dont-work-as-advertised/

Here's what the US's most advanced climate station has to offer in the way of data over the past 10 years.  It finds that we are in a 10 year cooling cycle.  http://spectator.org/blog/63087/america’s-most-advanced-climate-station-data-shows-us-10-year-cooling-trend   And, http://www.libertynewsnow.com/global-warming-fake-usa-in-tenth-year-of-cooling-trend/article1617

This should sadden anyone who wants to trust what scientists do and say.   http://www.libertynewsnow.com/how-did-they-prove-global-warming-is-real-this-time/article1685   And if what this item suggests is true it suggests nefarious government scientific activities in the CIA.   http://www.thealternativedaily.com/alerts/coconutoilsecret/clickspecial.php

The Catholic Pope has adopted the liberal/progressive stance on climate change - my way or the highway.  His encyclical, "...sets up a situation where Pope Francis invites dialog but only invites dialog on his terms. You can enter the debate IF you agree there is a crisis and IF you rule out technology as a means of solving the problem. Otherwise you are part of the problem. This is just nuts. It enslaves the outcome to a set of predictions that are highly debatable and rules out any solution other than the one that is pre-ordained. No one is denying that there are areas of the world that have experienced extensive environmental degradation, but this shotgun blast that takes local problems and rolls them into a ball and calls them a global crisis is crazy."   As noted in the piece Pope Francis is the first Pope since 1663 when "...Pope Urban VIII sided with the “scientific consensus” and had the heliocentric observations of Galileo anathemized. That marks, as far as I can tell, the last intervention of the Catholic Church in science. Indeed, Catholic scientists such as Louis Pasteur, the Augustinian friar Gregor Mendel, the Catholic priest Georges LemaĆ®tre were on the cutting edge of science. That is, until today."   http://www.redstate.com/2015/06/18/environmental-encyclical-assault-faith-reason/  Scientific consensus was wrong in 1663 and it is wrong today.  This Pope will ultimately regret repeating Pope Urban VIII's mistake.   Here is a cogent opinion piece that points out the blatant hypocrisy of the whole thing.   http://spectator.org/articles/63139/pope-keeps-faith-climate-change

There is little doubt that the EPA both wastes taxpayer money and pursues dubious scientific efforts.  It is in bad need of having its wings clipped.  Check out this piece.  http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jun/18/epa-grants-given-to-outside-science-advisers-while/

You might find this item quite interesting.  Quote: "The bible of the psychiatric profession, the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), published by the American Psychiatric Association, is now in its 5th edition. It lists some 300 official mental disorders by name, as well as the criteria which allow licensed psychiatrists to diagnose these disorders in patients.  And yet, in the DSM, there is not one defining laboratory test for any of those 300 disorders. No blood test, no urine test, no antibody test, no brain scan, no genetic assay.  This is supposed to be a science.   But there are no defining tests. Instead, there are groupings and clusters of behaviors, which committees of psychiatrists have decided constitute specific mental disorders."      https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015/06/15/the-devious-matrix-called-psychiatry/  

To this we might add that filling troubled mines with even more troubled prescribed poisons is one of the constants associated with tragedies such as the recent murders by a troubled young man in Charleston, SC.  Instead of listening to the rants by those who wish to decimate the Second Amendment, we need to examine with great care why prescribed poisons with well known estructive side effects are allowed but guns demonized.  Quote: "It is a well-documented fact that in the 1980s, a shift occurred in the direction of treating the mentally ill. Rather than institutionalize them, the preferred method was to “mainstream” them, encouraging them to function in society while being treated with a mind-numbing array of new anti-depressants being developed by the pharmaceutical industry."  And, "Other drugs linked to mass killers have more often been geared toward treating mental illness. According to a data set of U.S. mass shootings from 1982-2012 prepared by Mother Jones magazine, of 62 mass shootings carried out by 64 shooters, the majority of the shooters (41) were noted to have signs of possible mental illness — the precise kinds of mental illnesses that psychotropic medications are prescribed for."  See the disconnect?   https://www.lewrockwell.com/2015/06/no_author/the-big-list-of-drug-induced-killers/  

This is an item some may consider out of place but it deserves to be here because it documents the fact that so called conspiracies sometime prove to be truth and what is told the public are outright lies.  http://theantimedia.org/10-conspiracy-theories-that-turned-out-to-be-true/?
Given that the history of global temperatures over the past several years point to cooling more than heating, this piece examines the subject. http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/07/protecting_humanity_from_ice_ages.html

Quote: "The sun is known to be the main driver of all weather and climate. With 99.86% of the mass in our solar system, the great ball of violent fire in the sky has recently gone quiet in what is likely to be the weakest sunspot cycle in more than a century and actually flatlined in recent days. Weak solar cycles, like the current one, have been associated with benign “space weather” that can cause a “Little Ice Age.”     http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/05/hello_al_gore_low_sun_spot_cycle_could_mean_another_little_ice_age.html

Quote: "Temperature readings from the Arctic and Antarctic used to estimate the effects of global warming are nothing more than guesswork, a climate researcher has said. Dr Benny Peiser heads up the Global Warming Policy Foundation, which last month announced its intention to launch a wide-ranging review of the data underpinning claims on global warming."    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/05/15/polar-temperature-recordings-proving-climate-change-nothing-more-than-a-guess/

This is a case of follow the climate change money trail. You may be surprised by what you learn.   http://www.nationalreview.com/article/414359/global-warming-follow-money-henry-payne   This item suggests that lessons learned in Europe should be applied here in the US.  http://dailycaller.com/2015/03/17/europes-climate-policies-serve-as-a-warning-to-the-u-s/?

Fossil fuels are beating renewables in a big way.  This item explains.  http://dailysignal.com/2015/05/08/the-death-of-the-green-energy-movement/?

Logic is more powerful than propaganda.  The problem is that logic is not taught in schools across the country.  Propaganda is taught and absent a foundation in logic, propaganda wins the argument.   https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015/05/05/propaganda-is-the-art-of-overwhelming-logic/

Cholesterol has long been vilified as being bad for us, a killer.  Now science says it is okay.  This item offers us a lesson in the folly of claiming that any area of science is ever settled.  Quote: "So what does this mean? Can we simply ignore all recommendations and findings from the scientific community? Of course not. But it should give us a warning against taking studies – no matter how stringently repeated or promoted – as fact. Let science provide us with guidelines, discussions, and ideas. Let it move us forward in the areas of technology, health, and even climate. But let’s not forget that today’s best science could easily be tomorrow’s regrettable joke. Nothing is set in stone."  http://www.leanrightamerica.org/uncategorized/science-never-settled-cholesterol-now-ok/

This item adds to the folly that medical science is always right. And, it illustrates that when medical science and government join hands things can escalate to rendering mandated harm.  The evidence is unquestionably clear that this is the case.  https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015/04/30/a-totalitarian-society-has-totalitarian-science/  

These items cover some of the history of measles in America and how the medical profession has handled public information.  You may not agree but what is presented is hard to refute given sourcing.  https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015/02/10/what-sharyl-attkisson-told-me-about-vaccines/   More about vaccines.   https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015/02/13/measles-outbreak-13-reasons-to-reject-the-hype/  And more.  https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/fake-disney-measles-outbreak-send-in-the-clowns/  And yet more.  http://www.naturalnews.com/048972_vaccine_safety_mainstream_media_Lance_Armstrong.html

The whole area of homosexuality vs heterosexuality is a confusing and unsettled mess.  This item offers a review of scientific data based on studies examining a variety of aspects of the respective issues.  It is safe to say the science in this matter is certainly not settled. Legitimate concerns on both sides of the debate abound.  Quote: "Here is compiled data from a variety of sources including pro-homosexual and independent scientific sources that show that “LGBT” is a fictitious socio-political identity, and information leading into where we are today….addressing the claim that change therapy doesn’t work and/or is harmful."  Extensive citing of respective sources is included.  http://libertyalliance.com/change-scientific-data-testimonies-gay-activists-wont-tell/

Al Gore claims that climate change deniers should be punished.  Given facts readily available such a charge is ludicrous on its face.  Punished?  How, for what and on what authority?  Punish people for disagreeing with him?  Is he and his faulty belief beyond challenge?  What audacity he displays.  His belief in manmade climate change is increasingly under fire, all of his dire predictions have failed to materialize and his current claims that those who not agree with him deserve punishment all suggest he is a huckster.  The faithful believe in him but his dubious record speaks for itself.  Should he be punished?  No, but it is a matter of record that he has made himself extraordinarily wealthy using climate change as the means all at the expense of average people.  To me that is everything anyone needs to know about him.   http://ecowatch.com/2015/03/16/al-gore-sxsw-punish-climate-deniers/

Ineptiude, poor oversight, lack of a sense of urgency, etc. cause problems and harms people (even death) as this item illustrates.   http://www.westernjournalism.com/fda-implicated-new-super-bug-outbreak/?

This is a critique of current day science and its application in analysis of the World Trade Center tragedy.  It serves to illustrate that maybe more rigorous scientific analysis is necessary before the matter is finally put to rest.  The case made, seems to me, is pretty strong.  Judge for yourself.   http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/02/science-died-wtc.html
