THE SKEPTIC ARENA


This web site is dedicated to the eradication of irrational thinking.
Rationalists are those, whose thinking is strictly guided by the laws of logic.
Rationalists only accept as true, that which has been proven to be true,
through the application of the scientific method.

North Korea ...

Trumpism on steroids

"... his troops chanted 'Let’s defend Kim Jong Un with our lives!'
Flag-waving spectators, unmasked
despite a fervent domestic campaign to fend off the coronavirus, cheered ....
"

So what's the difference again
between these North Korean Brainwashed Zombies
and our good old American Maga Brainwashed Zombies?

It's almost as if,
no matter how far back you go in time
or wherever you go in the world
the Oligarchs seem to be able to mass produce them from the same mold.

Under Trump & McConnell,
Republicans have taken over the judiciary
as America pushes ever closer to ...

theocracy

We will be screwed for decades to come,
long after Trump is in the ground (wormfood);
as our Constitution is slowly ripped to shreds.

Argentina's Senate barely overrules its Catholic overlords (38-29) and joins the 21st century ...

by legalizing abortions up to 14 weeks

I can only imagine the backlash that the Ghost Worshipers are planning.

Conservatives on the Supreme Court: "No more abortion pill by mail" ...

Mifepristone singled out during pandemic

The split down party lines 6-3 (as always)
proves that one side is not following the law but politics.
Conservatives are nothing more than political hacks in robes.

The emboldened Trump base
is planning more insurrection and sedition ...

and Republicans are doing virtually nothing to stop them

There can be no unification in America.
Just as you can't mix oil and water ...
you can't mix morons with normal rational people.
They simply refuse to assimilate.

Under the Trump administration,
lobbyists continue to defeat scientists at every turn ...

USDA rejects idea to further cut alcohol and sugar intake

Here is the quote from the Trump official:
" new evidence is not substantial enough
to support changes to quantitative recommendations
for either added sugars or alcohol.
"

Now here is the "money quote" from the article:
" Given the impact on school lunches and decisions by food manufacturers, big money is at stake.
As a result, food industry groups lobbied hard against
the alcohol and sugar recommendations that surfaced over the summer.
"

Hint: "lobbied" (when translated) means ... "spent big bucks"

This story casts serious doubt on the veracity of Corona information coming out of ...

China

Maybe that's why their numbers are so unusually low?
Or not. It's hard to draw a conclusion when we are not allowed access to reliable information.
But this jailing certainly throws a lot of doubt into the reliability of Chinese reporting.

Trump is the black light that exposed
the semen stains on the motel couch.
Trump's legacy is his base:
almost half of all voting age Americans who were willing ...

to betray their own country and enable the destruction of our Democracy

Richard Wolff explains how the takeover of the Democratic party by the Oligarchs ...

has left Americans virtually defenseless

Many of the Founding Fathers tried to warn us about political parties.
I don't think our failure was the result of not listening, as much as it was ...

our inability to defend ourselves against the power of the Oligarchy

So, how many countries have U.S. military bases?

The answer is 70 ...

to protect our "interests"

If you open up the query "How many countries is the US military in?"
you will see that number more than double.

The world's largest Christian nation is by far the most violent on Earth.
We are the only country in the world in an almost constant state of war.
I'm sure Jesus would be so proud of how well we followed his teachings.

When it comes to unspeakable horror and brutality ...

Islam gives Christianity a good run for its money

To blind yourself to the inhuman monstrosity that masquerades as religion
you would have to gouge out your own eyes with a table fork;
and billions of Ghost Worshipers all over the world ... are able to do just that.

While America's economy crashes
with tens of millions unemployed
and businesses shut down everywhere
and GDP down drastically ...

who is propping up Big Business and the Stock Market?

Our Republican-controlled Government and "The Fed" (8:46)

This is why the rich keep getting richer
while the rest of us are struggling to survive.

Repeating a lie is a powerful propaganda technique

I have been surprised (and disappointed)
that the media rarely mentions the fact
that Trump repeats nearly every word
