Bill Nye No Science Guy


Authored by Anne Reed | AFA Journal | Friday, April 28, 2017 @ 2:19 PM

Bill Nye No Science Guy

The “science” of Bill Nye is driven solely by his liberal ideology

Bill Nye the Science Guy, the bow-tie guy best known for his 1990’s TV show for kids by the same name, it turns out is anything but kid-friendly. My oldest watched his show as a small child. As I remember, it was fun and informative in terms of beginner-level science. 

But oh how things have “progressed.” His new show on Netflix “Bill Nye Saves the World,” is outrageously disturbing.

Nye isn’t actually a scientist. He has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. He left that field to do stand-up comedy for a while before breaking into showbiz. And apparently, over the years, his basic ideas about science have evolved into something that has nothing to do with science at all, and everything to do with leftist ideology.

Nye is an avid supporter of climate change. He even thinks it may be a good idea to jail climate-change skeptics. In an interview with Marc Morano, Nye inferred that those who doubt or dismiss climate change should be prosecuted:

“What’s your thought on jailing skeptics as war criminals,” asked Morano.

“We’ll see what happens,” Nye said with a shrug. “…Was it appropriate to jail people from the cigarette industry when [they] insisted that this addictive product was not addictive, and so on. And you think about, in these cases, for me as a tax payer and voter, the doubting – the introduction of this extreme doubt – when you go with extreme doubt about climate change, is affecting my quality of life as a public citizen. So I can see where people are very concerned about this and are pursuing criminal investigations…” 

The idea of punishing American citizens living in a manner inconsistent with his narrow worldview extends further.

In a panel discussion with Travis Rieder, a bioethicist at Johns Hopkins University, the two clearly identified children as “problems.” In his concern for the amount of carbon dioxide children emit into the atmosphere, he pushed the idea that those in developed countries should be penalized for having “extra kids” (more than two).  Nye is suggesting that the U.S. develop policies like those in China that have led to abusive treatment of its citizens, including exorbitant fines, loss of livelihood, and forced abortion. 

In another episode titled Earth’s People Problem, Nye suggests that all women should enter the workforce in order to reduce the number of children on the planet. He goes on to say that when women are in power, “they have fewer kids, and the kids they have have a higher quality of life because they have more resources to distribute for the fewer kids.” 

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the veiled pro-abortion argument I believed when I was a teen – the message that worldly success and the almighty dollar is of ultimate importance, the final crowning achievement – an ideology that flies in the face of a biblical worldview.  

Make no mistake about it; abortion is exactly what Nye is suggesting. He has been a staunch supporter of abortion for years.  In light of his views on free-for-all sexuality, abortion is a natural outflow. With no scientific support, another show highlights his opinions about gender fluidity. With cool stage props and appealing color combinations, Nye explains that gender is not binary as we’ve all been taught:

“Now we’re realizing it’s more like a kaleidoscope,” he explained. “And this isn’t just for adults. Parents know this already.” 

The message to kids here: Your parents have been holding out on you. This is scientific kids!

In the same episode, Nye pushed extreme sexual deviancy by introducing Rachel Bloom and her dancing cohorts with “something very special, a cool little segmentto portray perversion as normal and healthy.

The “song” began with, “This world of ours is full of choice, but must I choose between only John or Joyce?” And it goes way downhill from there. The degree of obscenity is alarming to say the least. Apparently the vast majority of viewers agreed. The Youtube video currently has less than 1,000 likes and over 60,000 dislikes. If nothing else, the response is encouraging.

Nye, however, expressed a maniacal degree of praise once the disgusting spectacle finally came to an end: “That’s exactly the right message Rachel …nice job, whoa-whoa-whoa, beautiful, nice, carry on,” he said exuberantly.

Bill Nye is no science guy. And his influences should be kept as far from our children as the east is from the west.

‘Clueless’ GOP wants to exempt itself from health care reform

How many times have conservatives criticized Democrats in Congress for exempting themselves from feeling the full effects of Obamacare? Well, now Republicans in Congress have done the same thing, exempting themselves and their staff from the effects of their own proposed health insurance legislation.

The GOP’s proposed reforms to the Affordable Care Act will permit states to apply for waivers to repeal Obamacare regulations driving up the cost of premiums — regulations like the essential benefits mandates and community rating requirements. The tentative proposal is a compromise between the Freedom Caucus conservatives who want to see Obamacare fully repealed and the party moderates who want Obamacare regulations to remain in place. On the face of it, the idea is “if you can’t fix it, federalize it.”

But the GOP plan won’t fix anything. A half-repeal of Obamacare that is optional for the states will not sufficiently lower premiums, nor will it fix the systemic problems in our overregulated health insurance markets. The sicker people benefitting from Obamacare’s regulations at the expense of everyone else may very well lose the insurance coverage they like under the GOP plan while healthy people will continue to pay artificially higher premiums. This is why Conservative Review Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz called any repeal-in-name-only plan worse than keeping Obamacare in place.

And Republicans, never ones to miss an opportunity to shoot themselves in the foot with major pieces of legislation, have included a provision in their plan to keep the Obamacare regulations they like for themselves.

The GOP amendment in question, offered by Rep. Tom MacArthur, R-N.J., — a co-chair of the “Tuesday Group” — keeps the mandated essential benefits for members of Congress and their staff if their home state obtains a waiver to repeal Obamacare regulations under the GOP plan. In other words, Congress has exempted itself from the potential harms of its half-assed repeal of Obamacare.

Bad optics much?

 

Republicans are trying to sell something to the American people they don’t want to buy themselves. Is it any wonder 50 percent of Americans have “little or no confidence” in the Republican plan to reform health care? Not even Republicans believe in it!

How DHS Will Give VOICE to Victims of Criminal Aliens. New office will help Americans who suffer most from broken immigration system


Reported by Edmund Kozak | Updated 27 Apr 2017 at 11:30 AM

URL of the original posting site: http://www.lifezette.com/polizette/how-dhs-will-give-voice-to-victims-of-criminal-aliens/

The Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday the official launch of VOICE — Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement — a department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) dedicated to assisting victims of criminal illegal aliens.

“All crime is terrible, but these victims are unique, and too often ignored,” said DHS Secretary John Kelly in a prepared statement. “They are casualties of crimes that should never have taken place — because the people who victimized them oftentimes should not have been in the country in the first place.”

“There’s no intent to make a pun,” DHS spokesman David Lapan told reporters in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, “but it really is to give a voice to the victims of crimes that have been committed by those who are in the country illegally.”

As the official press release notes, the creation of VOICE is a direct result of President Donald Trump’s executive order entitled “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States.” The order directed DHS to offer support services to victims of illegal alien crime.

“Trump has put a face to these people,” Marguerite Telford, director of communications for the Center for Immigration Studies, told LifeZette. “I can remember Trump at one point saying [to victims of criminal illegal aliens], ‘I cannot forget you when I go into office, you will not be forgotten,’” Telford noted, “and I think it really speaks volumes that he has established this office — he hasn’t forgotten.”

Other advocates for immigration enforcement were quick to praise the DHS action.

“Thanks to VOICE, American parents and families who have lost loved ones to criminal illegal aliens — people who should not have been in the U.S. in the first place — are no longer invisible,” said Dave Ray, director of communications for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), told LifeZette.

“Their government has finally acknowledged their suffering and has given them a voice, by providing services to help them rebuild their lives,” he said.

Others who have witnessed firsthand the impact of illegal-alien crime on communities spoke to having compassion for victims.

“One of the main reasons I ran for Congress was my frustration with the federal government’s refusal to enforce our existing immigration laws,” said Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Penn.) in an official statement. “When I was mayor, Hazleton was overrun by illegal immigrants who brought with them gangs, drugs, identify theft, fraud, and other crimes. I always heard that we have to have compassion for the person who comes here illegally, but no one speaks up for the victims of these crimes,” he said.

“I had to sit with people who lost loved ones who were victims, and I have compassion for them. I commend the Trump administration for opening the VOICE office and standing up for victims and their families.”

The program’s rollout was especially meaningful to Maria Espinoza, director of The Remembrance Project, and those who are part of her organization, whose tireless activism on behalf of victims’ families was instrumental in laying the groundwork for VOICE.

“This felt like a watershed moment for families and The Remembrance Project,” Tim Lyng, president of The Remembrance Project, told LifeZette.

“Back in April 2015, Maria and three others from her group ‘America First Latinos,’ (months prior to Donald Trump entering the presidential race) sent letters to all 50 state governors, requesting a program that would formally acknowledge and assist these very same American families,” Lyng said. “Unfortunately, there was not one encouraging response then, and the issue lay unresolved until March 2016, when Maria sent a similar letter to the four remaining GOP presidential hopefuls. As you may know, only one candidate responded, and that was now-President Donald Trump.”

In addition to the support services for victims of criminal illegal aliens offered by ICE through VOICE — which include a toll-free hotline, community relations officers, and a “cadre” of victim-assistance specialists throughout the country — DHS launched the DHS-Victim Information and Notification Exchange (DHS-VINE).

DHS-VINE is a “free, confidential service that provides crime victims/witnesses, their family members, and victim advocates confidential notification of changes in custody status” of the criminal aliens who hurt them, and eventually see for themselves that the danger has been removed from the country.

The service “will allow everyday Americans and those victimized by criminal illegal aliens to quantify the size and scope of the criminal alien problem in the U.S., while also tracking specific cases,” said Ray. “The carnage left by criminal illegal aliens will no longer be this nation’s unspoken secret.”

“Maria and I both believe that the creation of VOICE will definitely shed a new and missing light on the illegal alien problem,” said Lyng. “We have been saying that, for decades, the killings of Americans by illegal aliens, whether intentional or accidental, has been one of the most under-reported and sensational news items, possibly ever, to not come across the wire,” he said.

“Average Americans, many who may be totally unaware of anything but an “isolated death” will learn, over the next several months, that this crime wave is epidemic and crosses all jurisdictional and socio-economic layers in the America.”

Others aren’t so sure, however. “it’s going to make their stories more public … but of course it only really becomes public … when the [mainstream] media report it,” said Telford.

If you or a loved one is the victim of a criminal alien, you can reach VOICE at 1-855-48-VOICE or 1-855-488-6423.
