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.

The Coronavirus has mutated and the new version is now dominant

Meet G614

Thankfully, there is no evidence that it is more deadly per individual,
however, the fact that it is more infectious - makes it more deadly.

In the usual 5-4 decision (straight down party lines)
SCOTUS preserves Republican's ability to hold power

by restoring voting restrictions

With the takeover of the judicial branch nearly complete,
Republicans have ensured the death of Democracy
(which the smaller party must do, to remain in power).

Covid is doing what the Union failed to do.

President of Russia, Vladimir Putin



The Putin dictatorship has now been officially established

Now that the Oligarchs have figured out how to control Democracy
(by manipulating the gullible half of the population with simple brainwashing techniques)
the cancer of Fascism is returning with a vengeance.
Democracy is in full retreat all over the world.

There simply aren't enough warriors in the hive to mount a counter-attack.

Another 5-4 SCOTUS decision (Roberts + Liberals vs. Conservatives ... again).
Kavanaugh and Gorsuch did exactly what they were put on the bench to do ...

ignore the law

When judges refuse to enforce the law
they prove themselves to be nothing more than political hacks.
That is why we need to remove political parties
from the selection process of choosing judges.

Roberts (a Republican) was also the one who sided with Liberals in the Obamacare decision.

once they have completed their takeover of the judicial branch of government;
and they are well on their way to accomplishing that goal.

20% of Americans are out of work.
Airline travel is down 95%.
Production has ground to a near halt, and yet during all of this,
the stock market has rebounded from under 20,000 up to about 24,000.

That proves that the Stock Market does not reflect the actual economy.
The Stock Market is a casino where the rich wager their profits
in hopes of making fortunes without doing any work or producing anything.

More proof?
The drop from 30,000 to under 20,000
happened before the economy shut down.

84% of ALL stock is owned by the wealthiest 10% of Americans.
The stock market does not tell you how the economy is doing ...

this may give you a hint ...

The Trump administration hired a dog breeder to run its Coronavirus Task Force

But this guy was removed:

"vaccine expert Dr. Rick Bright was removed from his post
after he pressed for rigorous vetting of hydroxychloroquine,
an anti-malaria drug embraced by President Trump as a coronavirus treatment
(which an early trial showed may actually lead to increased deaths of coronavirus patients).

Want to attend a Trump rally?
Then you'll have to sign a waiver ...

not to sue Trump if you catch Covid-19

Trump has convinced his MAGA people that the Covid pandemic
is no worse than the flu and is nothing more than a hoax to prevent his reelection.
That’s why they don’t wear masks or practice social distancing.
Trump is going to hold his first rally (since the outbreak began) in Oklahoma on 6/20/20.

But even though it’s all a hoax that is no worse than the flu, fans wishing to attend
must sign an agreement that they will not sue Trump if they catch the virus.
But in all his previous years of campaigning, Trump never required waivers for the flu.
