  • The 'March For Science' Shows How Carl Sagan Ruined Science

    The Federalist ^ | April 21, 2017 | Robert Tracinski
    I am a Carl Sagan fan from way back. His 1980 TV miniseries “Cosmos” hit me at just the right age and inflamed a lifelong love of science. But we’ve had nearly 40 years to assess the long-term effects and see how Sagan unwittingly contributed to a trend that muddled public understanding of science. This weekend’s so-called “March for Science” is a perfect example of what went wrong. All you really need to know about the “March for Science” is that it is scheduled for Earth Day. The organizers may say the march is nonpartisan and has a variety of...

    BI Director James Comey said he let cameras into the New York FBI offices to film a new television series in hopes that he might build trust with the American people. “I worry sometimes that people don’t know us,” Comey said in explaining why he green-lighted “Inside the FBI: New York,” a new television documentary by Dick Wolf of “Law & Order” fame and documentarian Marc Levin. “We have to care what people think of us,” Comey said at a showing of the new series at the Newseum in Washington, DC. “The faith and confidence of the American people is...

    Putin propaganda hits first, claiming US plans heinous attacks on Syria Typical of leftist ideologues and regime spinmasters, Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin threw the first punch by making a completely unsubstantiated claim the United States is readying to launch an attack on the south side of Damascus. He then said that the United States will use chemical weapons against Syrian citizens and lay the blame at the feet of Bashar al-Assad.

    President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Russia had information that the United States was planning to launch new missile strikes on Syria, and that there were plans to fake chemicals weapons attacks there. Putin, standing alongside Italian President Sergio Mattarella who was in Moscow for talks, said Russia would tolerate Western criticism of its role in Syria but hoped that attitudes would eventually soften. When asked whether he expected more U.S. missile strikes on Syria, he said: "We have information that a similar provocation is being prepared ... in other parts of Syria including in the southern Damascus suburbs...

    The UN Security Council is to hold emergency talks after an alleged chemical attack in Syria left dozens of civilians dead and wounded. The release of chemicals in a rebel-held town in Idlip province brought furious international reaction. Officials in Damascus deny opposition and Western claims that they used chemical weapons. Russia's defence ministry said a Syrian air strike had hit a rebel ammunition store that included chemical weapons..... In a statement, US President Donald Trump condemned what he called "these heinous actions" by the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson accused the Syrian...

    Hollywood produces movies that must be designed to brainwash the American people. If the production and distribution of movies got into the hands of anyone worse than most current Hollywood producers, we would be in for an alarming reality. John W. Cones, in his book A Study in Motion Picture Propaganda, explains, “The Hollywood-based U.S. motion picture industry is controlled by a single very narrowly defined interest group. It further concludes that it is inappropriate for any such group to control a significant medium for the communication of ideas in a society that is as diverse as that in the...

    Washington (CNN)The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, US officials told CNN. This is partly what FBI Director James Comey was referring to when he made a bombshell announcement Monday before Congress that the FBI is investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russia, according to one source. The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings, according to those U.S. officials. The information is raising the suspicions...

    Don’t believe a word you read, including this. However if you are a cheese-head and have cut it out for health reasons – because it’s “bad for you” - I have good news: As it turns out, not only is cheese not bad for you, it may in fact be good for you! The research from University College Dublin has concluded that people who eat a lot of cheese are thinner than those who don’t, and it doesn’t actually raise cholesterol levels…They found that the people who consumed the most dairy had lower BMIs, lower body fat percentages, smaller waists...

    The book declares that "the battle for the world rule of [ethnic] Russians" has not ended and Russia remains "the staging area of a new anti-bourgeois, anti-American revolution." The Eurasian Empire will be constructed "on the fundamental principle of the common enemy: the rejection of Atlanticism, strategic control of the USA, and the refusal to allow liberal values to dominate us." ..... In Europe: Germany should be offered the de facto political dominance over most Protestant and Catholic states located within Central and Eastern Europe. Kaliningrad oblast could be given back to Germany. The book uses the term "Moscow-Berlin axis"....

    In 2015 the Hearing Protection Act, which would deregulate suppressors and remove a $200 per unit ATF tax, was introduced into the House. Since then, a few different versions have been up for consideration. Now that Republicans are the majority in Congress and with a Republican sitting in the White House, the bill has a decent chance of passing. Not surprisingly, gun control zealots are opposed to the bill for all the wrong reasons. On Tuesday, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand falsely claimed witnesses can't hear gun shots that come from suppressed firearms and argued deregulating this piece of hardware would...

    "Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state." – Noam ChomskyIronic isn’t it that Progressives embrace both?  Propaganda and bludgeons?What old Noam failed to mention was that if everything goes according to plan, propaganda becomes the bludgeon. They’ve been using propaganda for a long while to establish officially sanctioned thought on everything from global warming to immigration to sexuality. For example they’ve propagandized the notion that all forms of sexuality is normal and acceptable unless you are a small minded bigot. I’m not being judgmental here - something Progressives abhor more than the devil himself...

    CNN ^ | 5:44 PM ET, Thu March 9, 2017 | By Pamela Brown and Jose Pagliery
    Federal investigators and computer scientists continue to examine whether there was a computer server connection between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank, sources close to the investigation tell CNN. Questions about the possible connection were widely dismissed four months ago. But the FBI's investigation remains open, the sources said, and is in the hands of the FBI's counterintelligence team -- the same one looking into Russia's suspected interference in the 2016 election. One U.S. official said investigators find the server relationship "odd" and are not ignoring it. But the official said there is still more work for the FBI...

Even if we add together the military budgets of the top ten countries in the world, they would not reach the American budget! Now it turns out that even that is not enough for Donald Trump. He intends to increase defense expenditure by $54 billion. This money would be enough to maintain five Polish armies. Or 10 Ukrainian ones. "The American public is already grumbling at Trump, who prefers...

    Not that you should expect it to stop In a previous commentary, I pointed out how the Democrats’ and liberal media’s constant drum beat for more gun control didn’t work over the eight years of the 44th president’s administration. There are some other propaganda narratives that haven’t totally stuck yet with the majority of the public, so pointing out some of them might help save some of the savable.

    The New York Times has published an article from opinion columnist and academic Thomas B. Edsall blaming the Internet for the collapse of establishment authority. Arguing that the Internet “threatens Democracy,” Edsall openly concedes that he believes the freedom unleashed by the Internet to be a threat to the establishment; to its norms and language codes "As the forces of reaction outpace movements predicated on the ideal of progress, and as traditional norms of political competition are tossed aside, it’s clear that the internet and social media have succeeded in doing what many feared and some hoped they would.
