" 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?

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.

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.

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/.

Many Americans trace the modern conservation movement back to President Theodore Roosevelt, known for his love of the outdoors and for creating the U.S. Forest Service and the national parks system. But what if government isn’t the only, or the best, entity to protect America’s natural wonders? The American Prairie Reserve is a nonprofit group that wants to establish the largest nature reserve in the lower 48 states and it aims to do so with private funding. So far, American Prairie Reserve owns or leases more than 300,000 acres with a goal of stitching together 3.5 million acres of private and federal land across to create a reserve 1.5 times the size of Yellowstone National Park. And they believe that their unique approach will reduce the tension with local ranchers and farmers that national parks often experience. "Currently, wildlife has no economic value to ranchers and, as such, the ranchers don't want them around," says Pete Geddes, managing director of American Prairie Reserve. But American Prairie Reserve aims to fix that problem with its Wild Sky Beef program. Wild Sky is a brand associated with a for-profit company, and the proceeds from its profits go towards funding incentives for ranchers to engage in wildlife-friendly practices such as creating gaps in their fences for herd animals to pass through, planting native grasses, and allowing prairie dogs to establish colonies on their property. The more benchmarks the ranchers meet, the bigger the payout. "As we're successful and we gain more attention over time, you'll see other groups trying to put this together at a much larger scale," says Geddes.

Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, Dr. Paul has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach, Rand has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope. A devoted husband and father, Dr. Paul and his family live in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where Rand owned his own ophthalmology practice and performed eye surgery for 18 years. As a hard-working and dedicated physician--not a career politician--Rand Paul came to Washington to shake things up and to make a difference. Dr. Paul has been married for 24 years to Kelley Ashby Paul of Russellville, Kentucky, and together, they have three sons: William, 21; Duncan, 18; and Robert, 15. He regularly volunteered to coach teams for each of his three sons in Little League baseball, soccer, and basketball. Rand and Kelley are both devout Christians and are active in their local church. Rand is the third of five children born to Carol and Ron Paul. He grew up in Lake Jackson, Texas and attended Baylor University. He graduated from Duke Medical School in 1988. Dr. Paul completed a general surgery internship at Georgia Baptist Medical Center in Atlanta and completed his residency in ophthalmology at Duke University Medical Center. Upon completion of his training in 1993, Rand and Kelley moved to Bowling Green to start their family and begin his ophthalmology practice. In 1995, Rand founded the Southern Kentucky Lions Eye Clinic, an organization that provides eye exams and surgery to needy families and individuals. Rand is a former president and 17-year member of Lions Clubs International, which is dedicated to preserving sight by providing eyeglasses and surgery to the less fortunate around the world. In recognition of his outstanding and sustained efforts to provide vision care to Kentuckians in need, Lions Clubs International has awarded Rand many of its highest commendations. A large part of Rand's daily work as an ophthalmologist was dedicated to preserving the vision of our seniors. In 2002, The Twilight Wish Foundation recognized Rand for Outstanding Service and Commitment to Seniors. During his free time, Dr. Paul performs pro-bono eye surgeries for patients across Kentucky. Additionally, he provides free eye surgery to children from around the world through his participation in the Children of the Americas Program. Most recently, he traveled to Guatemala on a medical mission trip with the University of Utah's Moran Eye Center. During the week over 200 patients, many of them blind with cataracts had their vision restored by Dr. Paul. Dr. Paul's entrance into politics is indicative of his life’s work as a surgeon: a desire to diagnose problems and provide practical solutions, whether it be in Bowling Green, Kentucky or Washington, D.C. Randal Howard "Rand" Paul (born January 7, 1963) is an American physician and politician from Kentucky. In office since 2011, Paul currently serves in the United States Senate as a member of the Republican Party. He is also a trained ophthalmologist and is the middle son of former U.S. Representative and physician Ron Paul of Texas. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Paul attended Baylor University and is a graduate of the Duke University School of Medicine. Paul began practicing ophthalmology in 1993 in Bowling Green, Kentucky and established his own clinic in December 2007. Paul has been considered a supporter of the Tea Party movement, and a vocal critic of the Federal Reserve System. He has opposed NSA mass surveillance of Americans and supports reduced government spending and taxation. He describes himself as "100% pro-life" and has cosponsored legislation for the equal protection of the right to life from conception. Paul officially announced his candidacy for the 2016 U.S. presidential election on April 7, 2015.

Republicans in Washington are hoping that they can cut $1 billion from federal disaster relief programs in order to give Trump some of the funding he needs for his border wall. This is happening at a time when American citizens are drowning in flood waters from Hurricane Harvey – a natural disaster that will cost billions. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

In case you didn't know it, portions of Texas are still under several feet of water. As of Wednesday of this week, another Texas town was inundated with even more flooding. Houston is still flooded, other areas still experiencing torrential rainfall. The floods are actually expected to continue to increase even after the rainfall as rivers come over their banks, as levees potentially fail, the flooding is actually going to get worse even when the rain stops. In spite of all of that, Republicans in Washington DC have come up with a brilliant plan to address this national disaster. They want to cut 1 billion dollars, or close to 1 billion dollars, from FEMA'S budget in order to give that money to Donald Trump to pay for his border wall. So at a time when we're experiencing one of the worst natural disasters, one of the biggest humanitarian crises in the United States, the Republicans actually want to cut the funding for the agencies that respond to these disasters and help to rebuild. That's the Republicans' plan. Now I know we've talked about Donald Trump's heartless and lack of empathy in his response to the victims of Hurricane Harvey, but this Republican proposal here is downright mean. It's not just a lack of empathy. It's an attempt to further punish victims because that's what the Republican party does best. Oh your home got flooded because of a hurricane? Well it's either one because you were some kind of sinner and God was punishing you, or two it's because you are too stupid to get yourself out of there and we're not going to pay for that. If you're raped, it's probably your fault too according to the Republicans. If you're poor, that's your fault because you're just lazy. If you're hungry, it's your fault because you don't have a good enough job. Everything in the eyes of a Republican is somebody else's fault. It's not the fault of the system they created. Hurricane Harvey certainly isn't the fault of the fact that that entire party denies the existence of climate change as part of their national policy. It's because those people just didn't move out of the way when the water got there. Maybe you should have owned a boat and we wouldn't have to spend money on FEMA to help you rebuild. This is one of the most disgusting policy proposals from the Republicans we've seen in recent times; probably even more disgusting than their horrible health care proposal from earlier this summer because we're currently going through a humanitarian natural disaster in the United States. Furthermore the fact that they actually want to give Donald Trump the money to pay for his border wall shows just how callous they really are towards regards to any human being on the planet. That's right folks. It doesn't just apply to people here in the United States. Apparently the Republicans are willing to just hate anyone and everyone for any reason at all. That's why we want to keep them out of our country. At this point, the only walls that we should be funding are better levees in cities along the coast to prevent floods like this from happening in the future or to at least make them less severe. Those are the only kinds of walls we should be talking about. To be considering cutting funding to save people's lives following natural disasters so that Donald Trump can get his little pet project funded is absolutely deplorable, but that is exactly what the Republican Party has become at this point. They truly are a basket of deplorables.

The letter from Senate President Pro Tempore Joseph Scarnati was the latest move Republicans have made to slow down the process of redrawing the congressional map, which the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled was in violation of the state constitution earlier this month. The court is giving lawmakers and Gov. Tom Wolf (D) until Feb. 15 to come up with a new map. If they can’t agree on one by then, the court has appointed a special master to get one in place so that the state’s scheduled election primaries can run smoothly. To help the special master draw a map, the court asked lawmakers to provide data on Pennsylvania municipalities and precincts by noon on Wednesday. But Scarnati said he would refuse to comply. He said the court was not giving lawmakers a realistic time frame or guidance to redraw the map and was trying to “usurp” the right the U.S. Constitution gave them to draw congressional lines.”* Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

His legislation is a bipartisan proposal to establish a new initiative that will set uniform standards for and help address the shortage of trained threat-detection canines in the United States. The proposal recently received approval and funding through the Senate's March 2018 omnibus spending bill. As a result, the program will receive $3 million in funding for Fiscal Year 2018 through the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate (S&T). Using those funds, S&T will work closely with academia to address the shortage of detector dogs and pursue uniform standards for operational competence.

Netanyahu couldn’t believe how clueless Trump is. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "President Donald Trump on Wednesday dropped a U.S. commitment to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a longstanding bedrock of Middle East policy, even as he urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to curb settlement construction. In the first face-to-face meeting between the two leaders since Trump’s victory in the 2016 election, the Republican president backed away from a U.S. embrace of the eventual creation of a Palestinian state, upending a position taken by successive administrations and the international community. "I'm looking at two states and one state, and I like the one both parties like," Trump told a joint news conference with Netanyahu. "I can live with either one." Trump vowed to work toward a peace deal between Israel and Palestinians but said it would require compromise on both sides, leaving it up to the parties themselves ultimately to reach the terms of any agreement. But he offered no new prescription for achieving an accord that has eluded so many of his predecessors, and Palestinian anger over his abandonment of their goal of statehood could scrap any chance of coaxing them back to the negotiating table. Dropping a bombshell on Netanyahu as they faced reporters just before sitting down for talks, Trump told him: “I'd like to see you pull back on settlements for a little bit.” The right-wing Israeli leader, who may have expected more decidedly pro-Israel rhetoric as the two sought to get past years of feuding with Trump's Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, appeared startled.”* Read more here: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-israel-idUSKBN15U0GB Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

President Trump has been busily cleaning up Barack Obama’s messes ever since he got in office. He’s creating jobs, cutting taxes, nixing regulations and, in general, giving more control back to American citizens instead of ceding it to the federal government. That’s what a president is elected to do. In July, the Trump administration announced that it would end what it sees as an illegal Obama-era rule that allows unions to collect dues from state subsidies intended for home health workers, including family caregivers. It acted as a de facto slush fund and now President Trump is giving back millions of dollars that are owed to these workers instead of the unions. Federal law is supposed to prohibit states from skimming money from Medicaid payments bound for independent in-home personal care workers. But thanks to the Obama administration, back in 2014, they created an exception, stating that states could divert some of that Medicaid money to unions. The flawed reasoning was that these workers effectively were public-sector employees. That’s quite a reach and in my viewpoint, not lawful or moral. There are eleven liberal states out there that have utilized this provision to raise more than $200 million a year for unions by taking it from health workers who often didn’t even know they were doing it, according to top GOP officials. That’s called ‘theft’ in my book. This would include states such as California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Illinois. Illinois is a blue state that has been at the center of recent Supreme Court rulings stripping power from organized labor. None of these states should surprise you in the least that they are doing this kind of thing. Republicans have been quick to point out that the Obama administrative exception violates the federal Social Security Act. It also violates the rights of home health workers. President Trump is attempting to rectify this. His decision means that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have already begun the formal process of proposing a new rule to roll back the Obama regulation. “The law provides that Medicaid providers must be paid directly and cannot have part of their payments diverted to third parties outside of a few very specific exceptions,” Tim Hill, the acting director of the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services, said in a formal statement. “This proposed rule is intended to ensure that providers receive their complete payment, and any circumstances in which a state does divert part of a provider’s payment must be clearly allowed under the law.” And if I read this correctly, notification must be given as well. Republicans have long sought to put an end to the Obama-era rule, which many see as unethical and illegal. Wisconsin GOP Sen. Ron Johnson, who chairs the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, had urged the Trump administration to take action on the issue earlier this year. Johnson released a statement that proclaims in part that he would continue to monitor Medicaid funding himself. I believe him and thank goodness someone is doing this. “Union dues skimming diverts Medicaid funds from the very people that the program is supposed to help,” Johnson (R-WI) said. “I applaud the Trump Administration for taking the first steps to rein in this abuse. My committee will continue to conduct oversight of CMS’s stewardship of Medicaid funds so that American taxpayers can have confidence the funds flow to those in need.” In 2014, there was a Supreme Court Ruling that home health workers couldn’t constitutionally be required to pay union agency fees because they were not public-sector workers. It didn’t stop the illegal dues skimming that has plagued the system. Perhaps that will be rectified now. This is just the latest bad news for the unions out there. In June, the Supreme Court swatted them again in Janus v. AFSCME, which held that nonunion public workers could not be forced to pay agency fees to public-sector unions, either. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: http://bit.ly/2Kn8KeN ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: http://bit.ly/2LPVNjq ◆ Email: email@example.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)
