Here’s What Donald Trump Really Thinks of America’s Scientists

Possibly even more anti-science than most Republicans
Science • Views: 35,321

It was a bit more surprising, however, that Team Trump decided to use the opportunity to criticize the nation’s scientists. “Mr. Trump and Gov. Pence appreciate that many scientists are concerned about greenhouse gas emissions,” said the statement. It then added, “We need America’s scientists to continue studying the scientific issues but without political agendas getting in the way.”

A few months ago, the implication that scientists were skewing their results to match their supposed political agendas might have seemed like a relatively tame statement from Trump. After all, he spent years declaring that global warming is a “hoax” perpetrated by “scientists [who] are having a lot of fun.” In July, he defended his use of the word “hoax” by invoking the widely debunked “ClimateGate” scandal: “If you look at Europe where they had their big summit a couple of years ago, where people were sending out emails—scientists—practically calling it a hoax, and they were laughing at it.”

But more recently, Trump has been trying to run away from that rhetoric. During the first debate, Trump insisted (falsely) that he’d never described climate change as a Chinese hoax. The following day, Pence—who once described climate change as a “myth”—acknowledged that human activities do “have some impact on climate.” Regardless, it’s now clear that Trump still thinks scientists are lying to us.

From Scientific American:

The current presidential race, however, is something special. It takes antiscience to previously unexplored terrain. When the major Republican candidate for president has tweeted that global warming is a Chinese plot, threatens to dismantle a climate agreement 20 years in the making and to eliminate an agency that enforces clean air and water regulations, and speaks passionately about a link between vaccines and autism that was utterly discredited years ago, we can only hope that there is nowhere to go but up.

Promoting this because it’s an issue that hasn’t gotten nearly enough attention in this election. It’s almost criminal how climate change has been virtually ignored.

Yes, but you can also substitute many, many issues for this as well. We’ve all talked about the horse-race, but Trump has sucked EVERYTHING out of the room.

Hillary could be secretly brilliant with her policy positions; it’s not like we would know anything about them with our press.

I had checked out the questions forum and was looking at the top 1-50 questions that had been submitted. There were multiple questions about climate change that had received votes to be in the top 10. In their infinite wisdom, the producers/directors of the debate, pulled the wikileaks question from the pile and kicked that to Anderson Cooper… ‘nuff said.

Here’s something to confuse the wingnuts with:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not a believer in protesting by sitting or kneeling during the national anthem.

Speaking to Yahoo! on Monday morning, Ginsburg had some harsh words for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other players who have decided to kneel during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality.

“I think it’s really dumb of them,” Ginsburg said. “Would I arrest them for doing it? No. I think it’s dumb and disrespectful. I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it.
…”

I’m going to respectfully disagree with Justice Ginsburg in this regard: athletes and celebrities have platforms most of us do not, so if they can say or do something to promote an issue that they believe in, they should. Sadly, I think the discussion got swept up in the mechanics of their protest rather than the reasons for their protest, but that’s another story for another day.

Just had a chat with one of my neighbors.
He bemoans the “fact” that everyone running for president is awful, but at least Trump is a successful businessman.
After I stopped laughing long and loud, I ticked off just a few actual facts about donald’s “success” as a businessman.
My neighbor isn’t going to vote at all now.
I wasn’t able to flip a vote to Hillary, but I managed to discourage a vote for Trump.
OTOH, this is Kentucky so it doesn’t mean anything in the end.

The problem Trump has with scientists is scientists try to discover what reality is.

Apprentice transcript.

During the boardroom session that decided which team did the better job transforming its artist, Trump turned the conversation sharply ― and at times, uncomfortably ― to West’s physical appearance, specifically her skin.

“I assume you’re gonna leave this off, don’t put this shit on the show, you know. But her skin, her skin sucks, okay?” he says, according to the transcript. “I mean her skin, she needs some serious fuckin’ dermatology.”

“You’re obviously not a skin man,” Trump said. He later reiterated the point, pounded the table and said, “which is okay.” He added, “I wish I wasn’t.”

Cyndi Lauper, who headed the team that managed West, interjected to explain that they used “dry stuff” ― presumably, makeup ― and said Trump was objecting to something that was “not her skin.” But he remained unimpressed.

“Fuck,” he proclaimed. “That’s Emily, that’s what I’m hearing about? Let me see the other one. I assume you’re not putting this on the show. ‘Cause I don’t wanna destroy the kid’s career.”

Physician Congressman Who Had Sex With Patients Stands By Trump

WASHINGTON ― Maybe Republican leaders are squeamish about denouncing Donald Trump’s sexually predatory remarks because they are familiar with how conservative religious voters reacted to the ethical troubles of Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.).

For anyone who has forgotten DesJarlais, he was a doctor who was elected to Congress in the 2010 tea party wave. Two years later, not long before the next election, The Huffington Post discovered through court papers that DesJarlais had previously had sex with patients and pressured one woman to get an abortion.

He expressed contrition that year and said God had forgiven him. The Tennessee state medical board fined him for his behavior, but he went on to win all of his re-election bids, although he had one close call in a primary.

Interesting point. Some in the right-wing media have already blamed President Obama for what is happening to the GOP, and to a certain extent, they’re right. After he was elected and reelected, they lost their sh*t and like a bunch of little toddlers, began to act out.

They tell their base that we want to take their guns away, kill babies, force their kids to be gay, etc while telling them they’re for fiscal responsibility, family values, low taxes, etc. So yeah Obama did help create it because they couldn’t accept that Obama beat them in one of the most savvy run campaigns in this generation and what’s more the man’s a good president to.

Let’s say you were told that you had an aggressive cancer, but in a very early, treatable stage. So you got a second opinion, and a third, and so on, until you had gotten 100 opinions. As you collected opinions, all of the Oncologists told you the same thing, and then told you that the cancer was getting worse and your chances of survival were dwindling.

By the time you got to the last three Doctor’s they again told you the same story, but then said, “Sadly, it has metastasized and you have no hope of surviving”.

So you run outside and yell, “The 97% were right, but the last three said they couldn’t do anything about it anyway! I knew the 97% were wrong!”

Some in the right-wing media have already blamed President Obama for what is happening to the GOP, and to a certain extent, they’re right.

I don’t agree-the GOP party hierarchy allowed themselves to be take over by the Suicide Caucus members and now they’re paying the price. This you can’t lay on Obama’s feet at all. When McConnell’s announced that the GOP’s primary goal was to make Obama a one term president the die was cast.

This was my post a couple of hours ago from the last thread. I’m not surprised:

I guess Wilkes-Barre is next today. It’s a natural stopping point for a drive I do a couple of times year. So beautiful, that area. Two years ago we interviewed someone for a job from W-B. She privately confided to me after the interview that she was desperate to get out because of the crime and poverty. I imagine Trump will have a good turnout there.

It seems that management at “The Apollo” has decided that they will not allow Trump to sully its reputation by permitting him to use the building. They probably know about Trump’s Central Park 5 ads and comments, about his rejecting “blahs” on applications to reside in his apartment buildings, and his claim that we all live in the nation’s inner cities in a state of poverty, are unemployed, and are poorly/uneducated.

Trump Va. campaign chair Corey Stewart fired for organizing protest outside RNC

Corey Stewart, the Virginia campaign chair for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, has been fired after organizing a protest outside the Republican National Committee headquarters Monday.

“He is being replaced, effective immediately,” Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said of Stewart, who is chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. “Corey made this decision when he staged a stunt in front of the RNC (without) the knowledge or approval of the Trump campaign.”

And, for me, the saddest thing about it is that millions of Americans will praise him for doing it, including millions of women. I’ll never understand how/why any female would choose to support a man who has admitted sexually assaulting women.

Police thug culture at work:

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - She was arrested and charged with a crime she didn’t commit. The case was headed to trial, until her attorney got ahold of the body camera footage.

The woman, who did not want to be identified, was arrested by DC Police for having an open container of alcohol. She says, she was wrongfully arrested. But when it’s a classic case of he said, she said, how do you prove it? Her attorney had an idea.

We’ve seen the importance of body camera footage, it’s usually a life-and-death situation, such as a police-involved shooting. But what about an open container arrest? “An average run of the mill case,” said George Lyon, the attorney.

Lyon said his client was arrested in the Trinidad neighborhood in NE DC in August. Police said the can of beer and a bottle of tequila they found on the sidewalk belonged to Lyon’s client.

“My client said she was not guilty,” says Lyon.

Not only that: She said she was arrested for doing something that wasn’t illegal at all; getting an attitude with the officer.

“So I asked her, were the officers wearing body cameras? She said yes,” says Lyon.

Lyon requested the video from her arrest, and the evidence was there. On the tape, you can hear the officer saying, “You got an attitude? OK, you can come with us, too.”

“People have the right to have an attitude and not get arrested,” said Lyon.

The video further proved her innocence, when it was clear the alcohol in question was nowhere near his client.

“She couldn’t even get to it,” said Lyon. “It wasn’t within her car.”

I’m trying to figure out what the RNC found redeemable in Trump last night that he has been reinstated, so to speak.

If the 40% of the GOP that voted for him in the primary decides to throw a(nother) tantrum and refuse to vote for Republicans down ballot, they lose the House, the Senate, and the White House. They’re in that terrifying position of having the guy who gave them a ride to the party getting blasted and pissing on the neighbor’s roses while the police roll down the street - they are screwed if they stick around, but they can’t go anywhere because it’s not their car.

Ecuador is still a functioning democracy, though Correa’s left-leaning coalition has had things pretty well sewn up for quite a few years. He is up for re-election next year.

Yes.
