Creationist Outrage Over Cosmos With Neil DeGrasse Tyson


*A creationist has reviewed the new "Cosmos" reboot, featuring astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and it may come as no surprise that she wasn't terribly impressed. "If the first segment is any indication, ["Cosmos"] will attempt to package unconditional blind faith in evolution as scientific literacy in an effort to create interest in science," said Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell, a physician and Answers In Genesis researcher. She praises some aspects of the program, such as its "colorful" graphics and "charismatic" storytelling, but Mitchell complains that the program spent too much time describing phenomena that contradict biblical teachings...* What do atheists think about this? The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Our Notes:  In the event that you have no idea what nihilistic socialism looks like, this is a great video to become acquainted with the concept.  It's used everywhere by the vast majority of the media.  It's design?  Destruction of American ideals at every level by whatever means.

Who's Defending The Billionaire Brothers Buying Our Democracy?

*Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid stepped up his war of rhetoric against conservative billionaires and liberal boogymen Koch brothers Tuesday, saying on the senate floor that his Republican colleagues were "addicted to Koch" Reid's play on words — Charles and David Koch share a homophonous name with a recreational drug — came less than a week after Reid called the brothers "un-American" for funding anti-Obamacare attack ads...* How did Fox News pundits and Republican politicians respond? The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Our Notes:  We follow neither the left or the right.  We are not about Democrats or Republicans.  We do not see any political party in the USA viable anymore and the above is part of the reason why.  Both sides are corrupt and play a show for us all.  It's all fascism disguising itself as something other than what it really is from both sides.  Communism is the same.  Liberalism is little different these days.  There are no sound party politics anymore.  Both sides can be viewed as right and wrong.  Therefore, each side can always claim victory and be right, yet still be challenged as being wrong.  It's a game.  It's played very well.  Only issue is that "WE THE PEOPLE", are the ones who end up holding the bag and being blamed in THEIR game.

Hilarious & Weird Obama Images On Pakistani Viagra

 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

"Washington gridlock isn't the only dysfunction President Obama has become the face of.

Suppliers of black-market Viagra sold in Pakistan are using the President's likeness to help sell imitations of the anti-impotence drug, allowing the man with the most difficult job in the world to, unwittingly, help others achieve a similar degree of hardness in their own lives.

Obama's face can be found on the packages of a contraband version of the erectile dysfunction medication in cities across the volatile Islamic country, according to AFP."* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

Can The American Flag Be A Threat? Yes, Say Judges

"A Northern California high school's decision to order students wearing American flag T-shirts to turn the garments inside out during a celebration of the holiday Cinco de Mayo was appropriate, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the school officials' concerns of racial violence outweighed students' freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would enflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday. Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, had a history of problems between white and Latino students on that day.

The unanimous three-judge panel said past problems gave school officials sufficient and justifiable reasons for their actions. The court said schools have wide latitude in curbing certain civil rights to ensure campus safety."* Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) break it down.

Our Notes:  First, the language in this broadcast is well beyond belief.  The arguments are interesting, however, fail to point out that we are in the United States.  If anyone is offended by this flag, then please, by all means, move out of this country and go somewhere else.  Anyone wearing any other flag such as the flag of the UK, Ireland, Germany, Japan, China or any other country was probably okay?  We understand the safety issues.  In the US, no other flag is raised before the US flag, period.  None.  The war for your mind rages on.

"David Yonggi Cho, founder of South Korea's Yoido Full Gospel Church, has been sentenced to three years in prison for embezzling $12 million in church funds, Christianity Today reported on Monday.

Allegations arose in November of last year when 30 church elders held a press conference accusing Cho and his family of stealing millions in church donations dating back to the 1990s. The elders enumerated multiple instances of Cho's dishonesty that involved him borrowing and never returning funds, acquiring enormous church donations without disclosing what they were being used toward and even taking an $18 million severance pay when he stepped down as head pastor in 2008.

One former church elder, Ha Sang-ok, was present at the press conference and urged Cho to come forward."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Our Notes:  Beware false prophets.

*Britain's surveillance agency GCHQ, with aid from the US National Security Agency, intercepted and stored the webcam images of millions of internet users not suspected of wrongdoing, secret documents reveal. GCHQ files dating between 2008 and 2010 explicitly state that a surveillance program codenamed Optic Nerve collected still images of Yahoo webcam chats in bulk and saved them to agency databases, regardless of whether individual users were an intelligence target or not. In one six-month period in 2008 alone, the agency collected webcam imagery -- including substantial quantities of sexually explicit communications -- from more than 1.8 million Yahoo user accounts globally...* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

"A corruption probe in a small California town has resulted in the arrests of four current and former police officers for stealing impounded cars belonging to mostly poor Latino drivers, prosecutors said on Wednesday.

Those arrested on Tuesday in the agricultural town of King City included interim Police Chief Bruce Miller and his brother Brian Miller, who owns a towing company, said Monterey County Chief Assistant District Attorney Terry Spitz.

"The victims were economically disadvantaged persons of Hispanic descent who were targeted by having their vehicles impounded, towed and stored by Miller's Tow," Monterey County District Attorney Dean Flippo said in a statement. "The vehicle owners were unable to pay the fees and the vehicles were sold or provided for free to some of the officers.""* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.
