" The new chair of the House of Representatives science committee has drafted a bill that, in effect, would replace peer review at the National Science Foundation (NSF) with a set of funding criteria chosen by Congress. For good measure, it would also set in motion a process to determine whether the same criteria should be adopted by every other federal science agency."* Rep. Lamar Smith - who supported SOPA and blamed gun violence on video games- is continuing the war on science by attempting to remove scientific peer review guidelines and replace it with one determined by Congress...politicizing science. Is this an effort to de-fund science and fund their own corporate propaganda? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down. *Read more from Science Magazine: http://news.sciencemag.org/scienceinsider/2013/04/us-lawmaker-proposes-new-criteri-1.html Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://www.youtube.com/user/theyoungturks Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/theyoungturks Support TYT for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=theyoungturks-20 Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/ Support The Young Turks by becoming a member of TYT Nation at http://www.tytnetwork.com.

It passed without a single vote from Democrats in the House or the Senate, and it’s a huge windfall for the richest Americans, including President Donald Trump. But Republicans didn’t just want any new tax law, they wanted to reform the tax code. To give the richest Americans a big tax cut while still funding the government’s essential functions, like building roads and flying fighter jets, the GOP needed to find tax revenue somewhere else. To do that, they had to start taxing income that used to be tax-free, by closing loopholes and eliminating deductions. If all of that sounds boring and confusing, fear not. We’ve broken it down in this video. Just don’t blame us if it leaves you craving cereal.

If the federal government were to cut off funding for public broadcasting, the programs that so many of us cherish not only wouldn't disappear, they would have a better chance of surviving long into the future. Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magazine/ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ----------- In 1967, President Johnson signed the Public Broadcasting Act, establishing a system of government subsidies that hasn't changed that much in fifty years. The lion-share of federal money was allocated—not to pay directly for programming—but to go to independent public television and radio stations that were established in every corner of a vast nation. Their main purpose has always been to distribute national content to their local communities. About 70 percent of government funding went directly the local stations in 1967. Fifty years later, that formula hasn't changed much. When the Public Broadcasting Act became law, maintaining a network of regional stations was the only way to insure that every American household had access to public television and radio content. Today, this decentralized system isn't necessary because it's possible to stream or download NPR or PBS content from anywhere in the world. As audiences moves online, the regional stations supported by the federal government are becoming unnecessary. It's not just that these stations have become a waste of taxpayer money—they also present an obstacle to online distribution. The advent of podcasting, for example, was a singular opportunity for NPR to capitalize big on a new way of distributing its rich content. Today, NPR publishes several of the top podcasts, but in a concession to the stations, it forbids show hosts from promoting podcasts on the radio or from even mentioning NPR's popular smartphone app. Station opposition is also the reason that podcast listeners can't download episodes of NPR's two top programs, Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Recently, some of public radio's most talented show hosts and producers have gone to work for private podcasting ventures. One reason to leave, says former-NPR reporter Adam Davidson, is that podcasters "have a creative freedom that NPR's institutional frictions simply can't allow." The fact is that without federal subsidies, the programs themselves could thrive. About 40 percent of funding for public television comes from private contributions (individuals, foundations, and businesses). For public radio, it's about 60 percent. Without the massive overhead cost of 1,400 local public radio and television stations, that revenue would more than cover the cost of producing the programs and then distributing them for free online. And yet fans of PBS and NPR might ultimately be even better served if they were to privatize and charge a monthly subscription fee—moving in the same direction as the rest of the media. (In this scenario, the PBS stations that produce national content, such as WNET and WGBH, would become production companies.) Either way, ending federal funding not only won't destroy the only thing that's worth saving about public broadcasting. It could very well be its salvation.

House Democrats resoundingly rejected a roads plan that will head to Gov. Rick Snyder’s desk after passing the Republican-led Legislature on Tuesday. In the new plan, $400 million will come from a gas tax increase with $200 million coming from higher registration fees. The other half of the $1.2 billion needed will be found only by cutting needed services such as public safety, education and health care funding.

As a candidate, Donald Trump vowed to dismantle the EPA in “almost any form.” And the budget the White House unveiled Tuesday cuts EPA funding by a third. But what’s less known are recent moves that would give the industry more of a voice when it comes to reshaping its approach to scientific recommendations. Science correspondent Miles O’Brien joins Jeffrey Brown to discuss the changes.

Republicans claim that Democrats won't negotiate on cutting the Affordable Care Act and making other budget cuts, but do the facts support that claim? "The Senate-passed measure to keep the government operating represents an enormous compromise by progressives to avoid a damaging government shutdown. The Democrat-controlled Senate agreed to temporary funding levels that are far closer to the Republican-controlled House budget plan than they are to the Senate's own budget for fiscal year 2014. Moreover, this concession is only the latest of many such compromises over the past several years The Democrat-controlled Senate passed a continuing resolution, or CR—a temporary funding measure meant to keep the government operating—that would set the relevant funding levels at an annualized total of $986 billion. That's about $70 billion less than what the Senate endorsed as part of its comprehensive budget plan back in April. But that actually understates the extent of the compromise...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read more here from Michael Linden and Harry Stein / Center For American Progress: http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/budget/news/2013/09/30/76026/the-senate-continuing-resolution-is-already-a-compromise/ Download audio and video of the full two hour show on-demand + the members-only post game show by becoming a member at http://www.tytnetwork.com/member-options/.

Today, Craig is going to talk about political parties and their role in American politics. So, when most people think about political parties they associate them with the common ideologies of the voters and representatives within that party, but the goal of a party is NOT to influence policies. The role of political parties is much simpler: to win control of the government. So today, we’re going got talk about why we have political parties in the first place and then finish with the five functions they use in reaching that goal. It’s a lot to cover, so next week we’ll talk about what each political party stands for and how that has changed historically.

When you think of the Republican Party, what comes to mind? If you’re like many Americans, you may associate the GOP with racism, sexism, and general inequality. It’s a commonly pushed narrative by left-leaning media and academia, but as former Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science Carol Swain explains, the Republican Party was actually responsible for nearly every advancement for minorities and women in U.S. history—and remains the champion of equality to this day.

These words are virtually interchangeable—at least, according to most professors, journalists, and celebrities. So, are they right? Let’s take a look at history. The Republican Party was created in 1854. The first Republican Party platform, adopted at the party’s first national convention in 1856, promised to defeat, quote, “those twin relics of barbarism: polygamy and slavery.” Those “twin relics” were spreading into the western territories. Republicans feared that as those territories became states, polygamy and slavery might become permanent parts of American life. Polygamy—the marriage of one man to multiple women—devalued women and made them a kind of property. Slavery, of course, did the same to blacks. Literally. The Democrats were so opposed to the Republicans and their anti-slavery stance that in 1860, just six weeks after the election of the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, South Carolina, a state dominated by Democrats, voted to secede from the union. The Civil War that followed was the bloodiest war in US history. It led to the passage, by Republicans, of the 13th Amendment, which freed the slaves; the 14th Amendment, which gave them citizenship; and the 15th Amendment; which gave them the vote. In 1870, the first black senator and the first black congressman were sworn in—both Republicans. In fact, every black representative in the House until 1935 was a Republican. And every black senator until 1979 was, too. For that matter, the first female member of Congress was a Republican; the first Hispanic governor and senator were Republicans. The first Asian senator? You get the idea. Republicans also kept their pledge to defend women’s rights. In 1862, the Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act was passed by the Republican-controlled Congress to put an end to polygamy. In 1920, after 52 years of Democratic Party opposition, the 19th Amendment was ratified thanks to the Republican Congress, which pressured Democratic President Woodrow Wilson to drop his opposition to women’s rights. In the final tally, only 59 percent of House Democrats and 41 percent of Senate Democrats supported women’s suffrage. That’s compared to 91 percent of House Republicans and 82 percent of Senate Republicans. There certainly was a “war on women”—and it was led by the Democratic Party. But while Republicans had won a major battle for women’s rights, the fight for blacks’ civil rights had a long way to go. In the 1920s, Republican President Calvin Coolidge declared that the rights of blacks are “just as sacred as those of any other citizen.” By contrast, when famed sprinter Jesse Owens, a staunch Republican, won four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, he was snubbed by Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt. Roosevelt only invited white Olympians to the White House. Two decades later, it was a Republican President, Dwight Eisenhower, who sent the 101st Airborne Division to escort black students into Little Rock’s Central High when Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus—a Democrat—refused to honor a court order to integrate the state’s public schools.

Conventional wisdom says that to win an election, you need to play to your constituencies' basest, most divisive instincts. But as a candidate for mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma, G.T. Bynum decided to skip the smear campaigns, tell voters what he wanted to accomplish and give them ways to measure his success -- and it led him to win the election. In a hopeful, funny talk, Bynum shares how he's tackling his city's most pressing issues and says that we need to set aside philosophical disagreements and focus on the aspirations that unite us.

Scientists across the country are taking to the streets to oppose the Trump administration. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Michael Shure, and Amna Nawaz, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why scientists are marching. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go “Traditionally, scientists shirk political debate, preferring to stay out of the partisan fray. But in the months since the 2016 election, many in the scientific community have been vocal about their concerns that the Trump Administration is making decisions and budgetary recommendations that could imperil their work. For instance, a $5.8 billion proposed cut to the National Institutes of Health budget, which funds scientific research in the U.S. Now, thousands of scientists and their supporters are expected to join the March for Science in Washington, D.C., and hundreds more are expected at satellite events around the country including New York City, Chicago, Birmingham, Alabama and more. "Scientists are often reticent to go public,” Rush Holt, a former member of Congress and CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science said in a Wednesday press conference about the march. “In this case, the level of anxiety about the state of science, it’s place in our society and in our government, and whether the conditions under which it can thrive are being adequately maintained and defended, has led people to go into the public square in what appear to be unusually large numbers and unusually great enthusiasm.” Read more here: http://time.com/4749221/science-march-scientists-partisan/ Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Michael Shure, Amna Nawaz Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Michael Shure, Amna Nawaz *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Help us cover the political revolution: http://www.patreon.com/TYTNation " A teacher rebellion that started in the hills of West Virginia spread like a prairie fire to Oklahoma this week and now threatens to reach the desert in Arizona. In the deep red state of Oklahoma, the Republican-led Legislature approved money for teacher raises and more school funding, even hiking taxes on the vaunted oil and gas industry to do it. Republican Governor Mary Fallin rushed to sign the measures into law Thursday. Oklahoma teachers were inspired by West Virginia, another red state where a 9-day strike led to 5-percent teacher raises. Oklahoma teachers haven’t had a raise in a decade of Republican control and they won raises of between 15 and 18 percent. Now, teachers in Arizona thronged their GOP-run Capitol this week, demanding a 20 percent teacher pay hike. “West Virginia woke us up,” Arizona Educators Association President Joe Thomas told a cheering crowd at a protest this week in Phoenix." https://www.axios.com/the-red-state-teacher-rebellions-are-spreading--72e04e2a-09cb-4c12-9318-0908e8e71ac4.html Shop at Amazon & support TYT Nation! http://ow.ly/LAKHU Like Our Facebook Page! http://www.Facebook.com/TYTNation Subscribe to our Network Partner: The Young Turks. http://www.youtube.com/theyoungturks http://www.tytnetwork.com

The Trump Administration proposed deep cuts in funding for the federal science agencies in 2018. Congress is now considering the President's proposal. This webinar will provide an overview of the recommended cuts, the timeline and key steps involved in the federal budget process, and guidance on what individual scientists can do to urge lawmakers to reject the President’s plan.
Dr. Paul's subcommittee explored the federal government’s role in funding scientific research and examined how its involvement affects the quality of the results, including a look at waste and the creation of wrong incentives. The hearing also considered whether increased reliance on private funding would produce better science and better value for the taxpayer.

What you need to know about how women fare under the Republican healthcare plan. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Republicans in the Senate are doing their best to repeal and replace Obamacare, as they've promised to do for years. But the bill they put out this week would hurt many of the people they vowed to protect, especially women. The bill slashes Medicaid funding and defunds Planned Parenthood-- both of which would take away prenatal, maternity, and reproductive care from millions of women. These cuts couldn't come at a worse time-- the United States is one of the only developed countries in the world with rising maternal death rate, with more than half of childbirth deaths coming from easily preventable conditions that would become even more widespread if women on Medicaid lose their coverage.

Why are a majority of Republican doctors and even some Republican governors defending Obamacare? Ana Kasparian, Brett Erlich, and Hasan Piker, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Mead's story is just one of the many inspiring Governor Rick Snyder in his fight to keep parts of Obamacare. Snyder is one of 16 Republican governors in states that have expanded Medicaid in their states, even though the Supreme Court ruled it wasn't mandatory under Obamacare. Governor Snyder describes it as a win-win for all sides; more people are receiving health care benefits, and there is a 44% drop in uncompensated care days at hospitals around the state. Michigan now has 646,745 people signed up for "Healthy Michigan," despite only expecting 470,000 to enroll. The federal government began funding 100% of the cost of the expanded enrollment nationwide, but it will be stepping down to 90% by 2020. But, with the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress on course to repeal, and potentially replace, Obamacare, all of that funding for Medicaid expansion could go out the window. Where Trump support and Obamacare use soar Snyder and eight other Republican governors met with the Senate Finance Committee the day before Donald Trump's inauguration to stress the importance of keeping "Healthy Michigan," and other programs like it across the country, funded. "This is the best case I've ever seen in terms of Congress wanting to listen and actually have a positive dialogue with the states," Snyder says, expressing optimism about the meeting.”* Read more here: http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/27/politics/michigan-governor-obamacare-fight/index.html Hosts: Ana Kasparian, Brett Erlich, Hasan Piker Cast: Ana Kasparian, Brett Erlich, Hasan Piker *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Kurt Schaefer (R) has launched an effort to stop a University of Missouri graduate student from studying the impacts of a state law mandating a 72-hour abortion waiting period passed last year. He accused the university of breaking a state law that prohibits the use of state funds to "encourage or counsel a woman to have an abortion not necessary to save her life," the Columbia Tribune reported last week. "The study does not appear to be designed as an objective, unbiased research project, but rather as a marketing aid for Planned Parenthood — one that is funded, in part or in whole, by taxpayer dollars," Schaefer wrote in an October 30 letter to the university's chancellor, R. Bowen Loftin.” *** Get The Young Turks Mobile App Today!

http://democracynow.org - A new investigation exposes how one of the top scientists involved in denying climate change has failed to disclose his extensive funding from the fossil fuel industry. Dr. Wei-Hock Soon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has downplayed global warming and rejected human activity as its cause, arguing the sun is more responsible than greenhouse gases from pollution. Climate denialists — including Republican Senator James Inhofe, chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee — frequently cite Soon's work to reject concrete action. But documents obtained by the Climate Investigations Center show Soon received more than $1.2 million from fossil fuel corporations and conservative groups over the last decade and failed to disclose those ties in most of his scientific papers. Funders include ExxonMobil, the American Petroleum Institute, coal utility Southern Company and the Charles G. Koch Foundation. In letters with his funders, Soon referred to his scientific papers or congressional testimony as "deliverables." We are joined by the Kert Davies, executive director at Climate Investigations Center.

Trump Breaking News Network - Trump's $5.8 billion cut to NIH encounters swift opposition The House Republican overseeing the purse strings for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is pushing back on President Trump's proposed funding cuts for the agency. Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) said he didn’t think the decrease in funding would survive in Congress, saying, “I don’t think it’s a wise choice." "I certainly understand wanting to plus up defense, but you have to remember part of defending the American people is protecting them from pandemics,” said Cole, the chairman of the House health appropriations subcommittee. “Part of getting hold of the long-term expenses of the federal government is dealing with things like Alzheimer's.” For the past two years, Congress has added a $2 billion boost for the NIH after about a dozen years without a substantial increase. But Trump has proposed reducing funding for NIH by about $5.8 billion. For example, the administration has proposed decreasing funding for the National Cancer Institute by $1 billion. The National Institute of Mental Health would see about $300 million less, and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases would be slashed by nearly $840 million. ----------------------------------------------------------- MAKE DONATIONS HERE http://trumpbreakingnewsnetwork.net/donation ----------------------------------------------------------- Source: http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/334759-trumps-58-billion-cut-to-nih-encounters-swift-opposition Please subscribe and share on your social media.

State officials and representatives of Governor Mark Dayton's administration called upon members of the Senate Committee on State Government Finance to raise the level proposed by Senate Republicans for funding state agencies in the coming biennium . State Auditor Rebecca Otto, Minnesota Management and Budget Commissioner Myron Frans, Administration Commissioner Matt Massman and Revenue Commissioner Cynthia Bauerly appeared before the committee Tuesday, March 21, to urge changes to SF 605, the omnibus state government finance bill authored by committee chair Senator Mary Kiffmeyer, R-Big Lake. According to Senate fiscal numbers, the Senate proposal is about $143.5 million dollars below Governor Dayton's recommendations. MMB Commissioner Myron Frans said the Senate's level of funding would reduce state agency budgets by 5 to 7.5 percent. "Governor Dayton has made it clear that he will not accept arbitrary, across-the-board reductions in agency spending," he said. Last week, Senate Republicans released their budget targets, which showed a $30 million dollar reduction in state agency spending as compared to the base level of funding for FY 2018-2019. The state agency reduction is identified as part of the Senate Republican goal of offering $900 million dollars in tax relief while spending about $741.5 million dollars of the $1.65 billion dollar budget surplus for other areas of the state budget, including transportation. The bill was referred to Finance on a 6-4 party-line vote.
