Female empowerment. Something the democratic party wants to stop.

Scientist caught falsifying data to get government grant $$$$$$$
Duke Whistleblower Gets More Than $33 Million In Research Fraud Settlement

Thomas, a former Duke lab analyst, sued the university on behalf of the federal government, saying that a Duke researcher fudged data to help the university win and keep lucrative grants from two agencies, the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency.

The dozens of grants in question covered the study of the lung function of mice. The Justice Department says Thomas' lawsuit alleged that "between 2006 and 2018, Duke knowingly submitted and caused to be submitted" claims to federal agencies that were unknowingly paying grant money for falsified research data.

The case has also had repercussions in the broader academic world, because according to the lawsuit, the allegedly faked research was used for more than meeting federal guidelines. It also helped Potts-Kant co-author and publish 38 articles in scholarly journals with her fellow Duke researchers — which were, in turn, cited in 417 other articles when the suit was filed in 2013.

As the website Retraction Watch notes, there have now been 17 retractions of scientific papers related to Potts-Kant's work.

Ask me about policies advocated by Democratic candidates.

I'm initiating this thread as a vehicle for our leftist friends to ask me about policy issues being championed by any of the current Democratic Party presidential candidates.

I promise to give you my honest opinion, the reasons why, with no snark or flippant responses.

You pick the subject. Green new deal. Medicare for all. Slavery reparations. Electoral college. Foreign policy. Whatever you want.

Ask away. Perhaps you'll change my mind. The ball is in your court.

A chance for an actual discussion at the Discussionist.

Democrat legislator calmly and rationally discusses gun policy.

Question for liberals.

Are we still in a crisis due to the end of net neutrality? Wasn't the world going to end or something if Trump repealed net neutrality?

Communist youth strike for climate change.

Notice that saving the planet is soooooo important to them that they take a day off school. But, they can't be bothered to take off a Saturday or holiday. Brains full of mush wanting free stuff. This is a case where an old adage applies, "Children should be seen and not heard."

Meet the brainwashed children trying to tell us something:
See the children's demands:
Adults won’t take climate change seriously. So we, the youth, are forced to strike.

We, the youth of America, are fed up with decades of inaction on climate change. On Friday, March 15, young people like us across the United States will strike from school. We strike to bring attention to the millions of our generation who will most suffer the consequences of increased global temperatures, rising seas, and extreme weather. But this isn’t a message only to America. It’s a message from the world, to the world, as students in dozens of countries on every continent will be striking together for the first time.

We strike to support the Green New Deal. Outrage has swept across the United States over the proposed legislation. Some balk at the cost of transitioning the country to renewable energy, while others recognize its far greater benefit to society as a whole. The Green New Deal is an investment in our future—and the future of generations beyond us—that will provide jobs, critical new infrastructure and most importantly, the drastic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions essential to limit global warming. And that is why we strike.

Global Warming Hoax Pushed by Corrupt Scientists Hooked on Government Grants
Greenpeace co-founder and former president of Greenpeace Canada Patrick Moore described the cynical and corrupt machinations fueling the narrative of anthropocentric global warming and “climate change” in a Wednesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Moore explained how fear and guilt are leveraged by proponents of climate change: "Fear has been used all through history to gain control of people’s minds and wallets and all else, and the climate catastrophe is strictly a fear campaign — well, fear and guilt — you’re afraid you’re killing your children because you’re driving them in your SUV and emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and you feel guilty for doing that. There’s no stronger motivation than those two. Scientists are co-opted and corrupted by politicians and bureaucracies invested in advancing the narrative of “climate change” in order to further centralize political power and control."

And so you’ve got the green movement creating stories that instill fear in the public. You’ve got the media echo chamber — fake news — repeating it over and over and over again to everybody that they’re killing their children, and then you’ve got the green politicians who are buying scientists with government money to produce fear for them in the form of scientific-looking materials, and then you’ve got the green businesses, the rent-seekers and the crony capitalists who are taking advantage of massive subsidies, huge tax write-offs, and government mandates requiring their technologies to make a fortune on this, and then of course you’ve got the scientists who are willingly, they’re basically hooked on government grants.

When they talk about the 99 percent consensus on climate change, that’s a completely ridiculous and false numbers, but most of the scientists — put it in quotes, scientists — who are pushing this catastrophic theory are getting paid by public money. They are not being paid by General Electric or Dupont or 3M to do this research, where private companies expect to get something useful from their research that might produce a better product and make them a profit in the end because people want it — build a better mousetrap type of idea — but most of what these so-called scientists are doing is simply producing more fear so that politicians can use it control people’s mind and get their votes because some of the people are convinced, ‘Oh, this politician can save my kid from certain doom.’

The things one learns at DU

Trump is kidnapping and raping babies and seems proud of it. He's a Proud Boy all right.

What percentage of DU posters are completely fucking clinically insane?

Failed liberal predictions.

What are your favorite failed liberal predictions and movements? I'll start with one of mine. Occupy Wall St. It changed NOTHING.


Unstable DUmmies reveal their mental illness.
Remember the knots in your gut, the daily morning dread
of turning on the news, the tooth gritting rage, the acid stomach, the rising bile, the profound depression, the despair of hope dashed again and again?

"Election" night 2016 was one of the worst nights of my life.

I grind my teeth due to him. Can I sue for harrassment or emotional/mental abuse? He is causing harm to my mind and body. Until he is locked in a cell for life I will not feel my country is in safe hands.
