Bill Nye, well known for his 1990’s science kid’s show and someone that went on to become an outspoken advocate on “climate change,” accused CNN of a “disservice” to its audience on Saturday, by having a real scientist on their network to discuss climate change.

The CNN “New Day Saturday” panel, which featured Nye and William Happer, a physicist at Princeton University, become very heated after Happer claimed that the climate change that Nye talks about is in fact a “myth.”

Happer, who has previously advised President Donald Trump on climate issues, said “There’s this myth that’s developed around carbon dioxide that it’s a pollutant, but you and I both exhale carbon dioxide with every breath. Each of us emits about two pounds of carbon dioxide a day, so are we polluting the planet?”

“Carbon dioxide is a perfectly natural gas, it’s just like water vapor, and it’s something that plants love. They grow better with more carbon dioxide, and you can see the greening of the earth already from the additional carbon dioxide in the atmosphere,” he explained.

Nye struck back by saying that Happer did not quite understand the “rate,” or speed at which carbon dioxide is entering the atmosphere. He then went on and accused CNN for not having enough climate change alarmists on their network.

“And I will say, much as I love the CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change,” Nye said.

Upon being asked as to whether he is skeptic, Happer explained that climate change alarmism is built on a dishonest foundation.

“Let me point out that science is not like passing a law,” he said. “You don’t have a vote to say how many are for the law of gravity and how many are against — it’s based on observations. And if you observe what’s happening to, for example, the temperature, the temperature is not rising nearly as fast as the alarmist computer models predicted. It’s much, much less — factors of two or three less. So the whole basis for the alarmism is not true, it’s based on flawed computer modeling.”

Nye, who on the other hand is not a real scientist responded to Happer stating, “That’s completely wrong,” & that “He’s cherry picking a certain model. The heat ended up in the ocean. This is not controversial in mainstream science, everybody.”

Proceeding with the interview, Happer said that the Trump administration should pull out of the 2016 Paris Agreement, a global agreement made last year on greenhouse gas emissions. Happer went on and compared the agreement to former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s appeasements of Germany dictator Adolf Hitler in 1938, known as the Munich Agreement.

“It is an appropriate comparison because it was a treaty that was not going to do any good,” Happer explained. “This treaty also will not do any good. Anyone who looks at the results of doing what the treaty says can see that the effect on the earth’s climate is — even if you take the alarmist computer models trivial — it will not make any difference and yet it will cause enormous harm to many people.”

This heated exchange came on “Earth Day 2017,” the very same day that people all across the world were marching in support of science.

A new report that alleges Bill O’Reilly paid five women claiming to be sexually harassed by him, was published on Saturday. O’Reilly’s news show, ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ is the most-watched news program in the US and despite the allegations, Fox News Channel has reportedly decided to renew O’Reilly’s contract.

After an investigation by the New York Times, the publication reported that it had found at least five women who claimed to have been victims of sexual harassment by O’Reilly. According to the New York Times, the amount paid out to these women, in exchange for their silence and an agreement to not pursue litigation, totaled to around $13 million.

While denying the claims of sexual harassment, O’Reilly admitted that he has on occasions “put to rest any controversies” in order to protect his family, in a statement on his website.

“Just like other prominent and controversial people, I’m vulnerable to lawsuits from individuals who want me to pay them to avoid negative publicity. In my more than 20 years at Fox News Channel, no one has ever filed a complaint about me with the Human Resources Department, even on the anonymous hotline.

But most importantly, I’m a father who cares deeply for my children and who would do anything to avoid hurting them in any way. And so I have put to rest any controversies to spare my children.

The worst part of my job is being a target for those who would harm me and my employer, the Fox News Channel. Those of us in the arena are constantly at risk, as are our families and children. My primary efforts will continue to be to put forth an honest TV program and to protect those close to me.”

By Saturday evening, the Wall Street Journal reported that O’Reilly’s contract, which was set to expire by the end of 2017, was recently renewed. The Wall Street Journal and Fox News Channel are owned by the same company, 21st Century Fox.

For over a decade, “The O’Reilly Factor” has been the most-watched news show. Recent data published by TVNewser shows that O’Reilly’s 8 PM show on last Thursday garnered about 3.27 million views, beating CNN’s “AC360” which attracted around 2 million views.

Since Donald Trump took his escalator ride to announce his candidacy for President of the United States, the media has been accurate with at least one fact: Trump is a populist.

The concept is great. A leader who looks out for the “ordinary” folks is a leader we could all get behind right?

Eh, not so fast.

Who speaks for the “ordinary” people? More importantly who would a populist President be listening to as the voice of everyday Americans?

How many regular Joe’s have been sitting around that White House conference room table and have they been more than a PR moment for the cameras?

I think you see the point.

The White House has been filled with political strategists and their politicians.

The only Washington outsiders that have the President’s ear are his own daughter and her husband, who sadly have a long history of supporting liberal causes and politicians.

While President Trump may sincerely think he’s looking out for the interests of working class Americans, it would appear that he as lost access to “the little people” who elected him.

Instead, he is being told what the will of the people is through the filter of Paul Ryan, Fox News and his closest, and closeted advisors.

Trump’s support of the American Health Care Act is the primary indicator of what’s going on within his mind.

If you tack on Trump’s wading into Identity Politics at the urging of his daughter and former campaign manager, the picture becomes much more clear:

Trump is a man who wants to make good on his word and is sincere in his desire to serve the interests of all Americans.

The President’s weakness comes from his lack of an ideological foundation. Politically, Trump, while a patriot, has no idea who he is . . .

. . . and that’s where the vultures start picking.

That’s also the fatal flaw of governing by popular opinion – which is nothing new.

Since Ronald Reagan boldly stood behind the podium to nominate Barry GoldWater in 1964, Republicans have been attempting to maintain power through populist compromise rather than standing by principle.

Without principles, you’ll stand for anything . . . and you’ll stand for nothing.

In a modern age where popular interests can be so easily faked and manipulated, the flaw of populist governance without solid principles becomes wildly dangerous to those who are governed.

An industry that wants to influence public policy only has to spend a few million bucks on a Twitter campaign and, voila, a strategist whispers into the President’s ear with a slithering voice, “Misssster Presssident, the people have sssspoken . . .”

You can be rest assured that similar manipulations are occurring each day.

For President Trump to publicly denounce the Freedom Caucus, Freedom Works and the venerable Heritage Foundation (that worked with President Reagan to break the back of the Evil Empire), he is clearly listening to the wrong people.

While the above sounds dire, all is not lost.

For the first time in my career in the world of politics, the people who fervently supported a candidate have not become parrots who will say and do anything that they’re told.

The reaction of Trump supporters when the American Health Care Act came to light, was heartwarming. It was motivating.

For a Trump supporter to stand their ground against RyanCare and President Trump proves that, while Trump may have never built his ideological foundation, his supporters have beliefs built on an unshakable bedrock of granite.

With that and some effort, America can be made great again.

For those who truly know and love Liberty, this is our “rendezvous with destiny.”  Are you in?

It took only a few hours.

Following the release of an undercover investigation by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, a representative for United Educators of San Francisco was put on administrative leave.

The union rep, Antonio Mankini, boasted to O’Keefe’s undercover journalists about how he can hurt kids and “never leave a mark.”

Mankini, a former teacher then bragged about how he “clotheslined” a kid and got away with it.

This is the second recent video released by Project Veritas and James O’Keefe that focuses on Teachers Unions.

In 2010, Project Veritas released a series of videos called “Teachers Unions Gone Wild” where a teacher claimed that she would “have to be in the hallway f’ing somebody” to get fired.

Watch the video above and comment below.

When Fox News Contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano stated that, “He [Obama] used GCHQ . . . the initials for the British spying agency . . . they have 24 hour access to the NSA database . . . and there’s no American fingerprints” he ended up being sidelined by his corporate bosses.

Napolitano was referring to FISA in the interview on Fox & Friends, however, what he really meant was an agreement known as “Project ECHELON.”

When the Judge was just a 21 year-old, a government project named ECHELON, was formerly established.

ECHELON is a spying agreement between Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The 46 year-old program allows nations that cannot spy on their own people and companies, per their own laws and constitutions to, well . . . spy on their own people and companies.

While the United States government cannot legally spy on citizens without cause and procedure, Australia, Canada, etc., can spy on Americans without any laws stopping them.

In turn, the United States can spy on all of the other nations.

When any of those nations, known as the FIVE, need information on their own people, they simply “share” data.

Project ECHELON, which was investigated by the European Parliament in 2000, and finally acknowledge in 2015 with the release of information by Edward Snowden.

The massive, worldwide spying program is not that big of a secret. Heck, even Hollywood made a movie loosely based on it . . . and even named the film the “Echelon Conspiracy.”

According to the Snowden documents, the program is run through “intercept stations” around the world managed by the NSA, CIA, Air Force, GCHQ (Britain), GCSB (New Zealand), ASD (Australia), and BND (German). As with many other international agreements, Canada doesn’t pull its own weight and does not operate an intercept station.

Germany, while not a member of the original “FIVE” operates an intercept station in Munich with the NSA as support.

Of the 16 known intercept stations, 11 have an NSA presence.

While Andrew Napolitano may have seemed like a conspiracy theorist to Fox News executives when he brought up the possibility that Donald Trump was spied on by the UK, in reality, those executives are simply ignorant of the history and depth of spying by our own government . . . and others.

Of course the UK would respond with “outrageous” when accused of spying on a presidential candidate at the request of a sitting United States President.

Their response is no different in force when the UK was investigating ECHELON in 2001. European investigators flew into the United States to meet with officials with the CIA and NSA.

When it was revealed that the purpose of the meetings were to discuss Project ECHELON, the meetings were cancelled and the delegation was forced to fly home.

Sixteen years later, the program rolls on, but if you dare talk about it like Judge Napolitano did, you may be out of a job.

Comedian and former CNN host, D.L. Hughley, did not mince words when asked about his respect for Donald Trump.

When caught at an airport, Hughley told TMZ, “He’s been disrespectful to just about everyone except the White Supremacists who serve him.”

Commenters on the YouTube video point out that if you were to criticize President Obama, “you were called a racist” and now if you show support for President Trump, “you are called a racist.”

It seems D.L. Hughley supports the race card theory with his remarks.

The media can’t get away from Trump’s wiretapping tweet and late night comedy was quick to jump on board and ride the horse into the ground.

Watch John Oliver’s latest above to get a feel for the treasure trove of information that’s fueling the ride.

Florida resident Gregg Dunay is a proud Trump supporter who attended multiple rallies in the state and even traveled to Washington D.C. to watch Donald Trump’s inauguration.

He never suspected that a simple “Make American Great Again” bumper sticker would land him in the hospital.

But that’s exactly what happened.

When stopped at a traffic light, an African American man, ran across five lanes of traffic to blind side Dunay, after shouting “F—k Trump!”

Police from Kenneth City have released photos of the man and his vehicle, which was parked at a nearby gas station.

Should this be considered a hat crime? Comment below.

Bill Nye “the Science Guy” recorded an “Open Letter to President Trump” (which was a video not a letter) to ask President Trump to stick to the Mars mission with a three step request.

Unlike other Hollywood celebrities (is Bill Nye a celebrity?), Nye was sincere and made a valid case for his request, rather than stomping his feet and acting like a Berkeley snowflake that had his BMW taken away.

Watch above.

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas ran into something unexpected at a holiday party hosted by a New York State teacher’s union.

At the party was attorney Mitchell Rubinstein who has worked for New York State United Teachers since 1990 according to his LinkedIn profile.

Rubenstein proceeded to tell one of Project Veritas’ undercover agents about his “worst” case ever.

The attorney described in graphic detail how, “20 years ago”, a teacher forced several children to engage in oral sex with him at knifepoint.

The teacher was defended by Rubinstein (at least before the school district) and was able to walk away with no jail time – just a resignation.

O’Keefe has been searching for this teacher for the past year that Rubinstein referred to only as “Mike.”

Yesterday, O’Keefe turned the story over to the public and asked for their help in locating the man.

The group 4Chan, most recently known for locating Shia Labeouf’s “He Will Not Divide Us Flag” (the group used star charts and condensation trails to locate the origin of the flag), took up the call, and within hours, has a possible suspect for “Mike.”

In 1992, the founder of a New York Bridge School was forced to resign after admitting to molesting two boys at his school aged 13 and 15. Eight others accused the man of abuse but those cases never moved forward.

Project Veritas is looking to confirm the relationship between the 1992 case at the Bridge School and the union attorney.

Finding “Mike” will be another blow to the teacher’s unions who appear to put the careers of their union members above any interests of children – even when they’re being sexually abused by their own teachers.

Watch the video above to learn more but be forewarned that it contains very explicit language.
