Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz believes
that science is propaganda or at least that is what he and three other Republican senators
said in a recent where they’ve basically called to cut some funding from the National Science
Foundation, and they want a criminal probe for potential violations of the Hatch Act
into the National Science Foundation for doing nothing more than their jobs. Here is what has Ted Cruz so mad at the NSF,
which he claims is now just a propaganda outlet. Ted Cruz and these other Republican senators,
James Lankford, Rand Paul, and James Inhofe are all mad that the National Science Foundation
is granting out about $4 million a year to help meteorologists around the country understand
climate change and learn how to report on how it affects local communities. That’s what has these senators so pissed off
right now. That a science foundation is helping to fund
science and educate people. They can’t stand it. Do you know why? I’ll get into all the specifics of climate
change in just a moment, but here’s the thing. These Republicans, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Lankford,
and Inhofe, they’re pissed off because the National Science Foundation is actually trying
to educate people about what’s really happening to our planet. You know why it makes them mad other than
the fact that these four receive more money from fossil fuel companies than other group
of four senators in the country? It’s because if people become educated, if
they learn about the issues, they’re less likely to vote Republican. Republicans need stupid people because that
is their base. Their base is stupid people. If they learn more, if they educate themselves,
if we’re out there teaching them what science actually says, they’re not going to be stupid
anymore and therefore they will be less likely to vote Republican and that’s what terrifies
Ted Cruz. Now, he’s also mad that his donors in the
fossil fuel industry, along with James Inhofe who takes more money than anybody from them,
they’re mad that their donors might get pinged if everybody understands that we’re destroying
the planet for fossil fuel production and consumption. But, that’s kind of secondary. The big thing really is they don’t want people
to understand anything. Back to the actual issue here. They’ve sent this letter. They want the office of ethics to investigate
the National Science Foundation because they believe one of the groups that they are funding
to provide some of this climate research and teaching is an activist group, advocacy group
actually. They think it violates the Hatch Act because
government agencies aren’t allowed to get involved in politics and they want an investigation
even though this group has complied with everything regarding the Hatch Act since they started
receiving federal money. In fact, they actually go through yearly training
to make sure that they do not violate the Hatch Act. On its face, Ted Cruz’s claim falls apart. They’re not funding propaganda. This group has been in compliance with every
regulation available and they go out of their way to make sure that they do that. Can you say the same about the guy in the
White House that you’re supporting? No, you can’t. Probably can’t even say the same about yourself,
Ted and Jim and Rand and other Jim, but you guys don’t care about that. You want to let your donors continue to destroy
this planet and you want to keep people in the dark about what science actually says
because you think that somehow having a dumber populace, having a populace that gets poisoned
by emissions from corporations, you think that’s somehow going to continue to win you
elections. Good luck with that strategy.

    According to Open Secrets.org, 2016 campaign contributions by oil and gas companies were No. 1 Ted Cruz $1,509,723, 2. Donald Trump, $924,782, 3. Hillary Clinton, $900,905, 4. Marco Rubio $749,051, 5. Paul Ryan $682,108. The USA has the best politicians money can buy!
    In a sadly ironic twist, Mother Nature, in 2017, via Hurricane Harvey, handed the Houston area 125 billion in damages, second only to Katrina. and killed 88 people. Those damned Chinese surely whipped up a one hell of a hurricane hoax! Irma too appreciated all that extra AGW generated energy too.

    Well if Trump and his cronies can believe the world is flat then Ted Cruz and his stunard buddies can believe that science is nothing but propaganda.

  • MrCrazyLeprechaun Post author

    Just because science validates left-leaning politics more often doesn't make it propaganda.

    Did Cruz bang his head during that 1-on-1 with Kimmel the other day? That's mad! Oh… No – it's the money paid to politicians again; do the bidding of the fossil fuel companies or the cash cow dies. So they want to waste more public money investigating a bunch who are so straight up you could climb them to space. Well, at least it will keep Trump's mob entertained while attention is diverted away from them. Those douchebags have to go, not just because of what they're doing to the USA but because of the potential for fucking up the rest of the world – it's the only one we have and It'd be a bugger if they get to trash it for everybody.

    Texans, here is another reason to repeal and replace Ted Cruz. We must not let these ignorant people destroy our planet. They are systematically killing our planet and we must speak up and fight against their lies. They want Americans to remain uneducated so that they will believe all the lies they are told. Americans need to realize that global warming is real and it will affect every single one of us. This is the time to vote them out of office and replace them with people who care about our planet. Replace Ted Cruz with BETO in the senate in November.

  • Carol Mello Post author

    Without science: no engineering, no electricity, no cars, no airplanes, no medical care, no tornado warnings, no hurricane warnings, no flood warnings, no volcano eruption warnings. No epidemic control, just let people die. No food safety, just let people die. Ted Cruz wants to waste taxpayer money on an anti science investigation. All of my life, I have watched the GOP wasting taxpayer money. I am glad Ted Cruz is not president.

    I think my kids and grand kids will die about the same time.
    How lucky they are.

    Most rational people realize our planet is trashed…
    most irrational people couldn't care less,
    as long as the 'trickle down' theory
    keeps working so well for them.

    In a way they ARE promoting propaganda. The point is that to republicans, truth is leftist propaganda. This is because GOP is all about lies and alternate reality.

    BUT AFTER THAT, I'm demanding my congressman de-fund the CDC & NASA and get God's truth back in the science classroom where it belongs.

  • Mate Jebach Post author

    Republicans agenda about climate warming is as usual. Let things go in worst possible way, we will get enough money to run on what will be safe place. Or we will cool it by nuclear war on China and Russia. And China will have bigger devastations then we will by flooding. That stupid who vote for us and believe us, who cares, let them die dumb-asses.

    OK, well known logic, but logic about wining next elections? There is no such plan. It is thing of democracy, but they are not Democrats, they are Republicans. They are turning off democracy. There is no democracy anymore, only remain voting for offered candidates and that also not for long. Soon will be discovered that there is no need for voting anymore, people already see who becomes elected past decades and they already talk: Who cares about voting it is all the same. Corporations will elect their representatives in houses and president directly, Fox News will explain people that it is perfect solution and exactly what founding fathers wanted. So what will be with science and allowing science to teach people? There would not be allowed that science teach people, it is matter of churches to teach the people, not science, duty of science is to work for corporations.

    Only, it is not quite sure does churches work for corporations or corporations works for churches? Nobody knows real owners of banks which owns corporations.

    Science is the way we learn about the world around us and began the Enlightenment Movement.

Made land, sea, air, and space travel possible, created all the modern luxuries we have today, and SO MUCH MORE!

    I don't do the Left Right paradigm thing. What i do, is teach myself things. One of the things I taught myself is that the NSF was created on the marching orders of the Director of the CIG, know what the CIG is? Let me educate you smarty pants. That is the CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE GROUP. Now why would they want to have a National Science Foundation created? rhetorical! So just a few years after the CIG, OSS, etc became the CIA, the NSF was enacted by congress. The unclassified CIA document is available on their website. The Category Code is far too long to remember, however, ITS there. So I support the man in the WHITE HOUSE, as i did when I was Navy Pres Ceremonial Guard at the Inauguration of the Last man in the white house. Does that make me dumb? rhetorical because my iQ is 160+ via MENSA, i dont care what they say about TELLING PEOPLE YOUR iQ or How much money you have, you know who says that crap, PEOPLE WITH LOW iQs' and LOW BANK ACCOUNTS. SO i suggest you go learn sir, I am happy I am digging into the CIA's relationship with the NSF because I came across this UNEDUCATED VIDEO. NOW YOU KNOW so will you now make a video about the Military Industrial Complex and the Intell Community being involved with the NSF who "EDUCATES" people on "MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE" formerly known as Global Warming, Global Cooling, and whatever else they CIA wants to call it. The only thing MAN MADE about the climate change is HUMANS spraying shit to make it rain, increase Albido, etc, ITS called TERMINATION SHOCK, cant stop it, or the climate goes haywire, now thats not the complete cause. America and the EU are the only Governments which have a Climate Prediction model which left out the Antactic Current You know that one which brings the COLD water up from the BOTTOM to the top, then wouldn't you know it, IT does not actually show a HEATING trend, it shows a COOLING trend that will get much much cooler, if you think this week , Jan 30 2019 was cold HAHAHA just wait as we DIVE into the HEART of the Grand Solar Minimum. CARBON EMISSIONS is BS, you know why the PETROchemimcal industry was chosen as the ENEMY? Because JUST so happens, AMERICA does not exist independent of the PETRO DOLLAR, So not matter how hard you huff and puff about FOSSIL FUEL, Man Made whatever, YOU WILL NEVER succeed. ITS like WRESTLING, its fake. An educated individual would almost certainly have started questioning the science when the Paper which it was published and "hypothesized" in did not mention the SUN as a contributing FACTOR in CLIMATE change. Hmmmm Do you remember what I said about Intelligence in the NSF business. Where do you get GRANTS to cover your COURSE Funding which is not provided by the Institution? Substitutes 2months of pay? OH thats right the NSF. Would it benefit the CIA to know what is happening in the world of Scientific discovery at its infancy? Rhetorical PATENTS its all about that Dough, Rey, Money and Control! If you were a reporter you may have actually dug a bit. However you aren't. You are a mouth piece with a popular youtube channel because what is POPULAR is almost never TRUE and what is TRUE is almost certainly NEVER popular! Don't care about misspelling and grammar. If its an issue oh well, time is the only finite resource perceived by man! PIN THAT iSH
