No prize awarded because the nominees
were white men

Woke is too kind a word for this story because Scientific American now approves of discrimination based on race and sex. A great story fell into the publication's lap. The American Geophysical Union refused to award a prize for excellence in science because all five candidates were white males. What kind of nonsense is that? Do the members of the prize committee eschew flight because the Wright Brothers were white males? Do they walk rather than drive a car, ride a bicycle, or ride a motorcycle because all of them were invented by white males? Ditto trains. Ditto telegraph. Ditto radio. Ditto TV. Rather than take this committee to task, Scientific American praised


Maybe all those BLM types who people the TV commercials we now see are running things?

Before we call them backstabbers, and write them off, let's see what comes of it. The fact they have appeared and are "speaking" doesn't mean they're really telling them anything. Or they could tell them the truth, which means they'll be vilified in the press. So we'll know soon enough.

They should sue based on discrimination. Oh wait, Democrats have been blaming white males for the evils of the world for at least 3 generations. Therefore, discrimination against white males falls into the Just-Us category. They are not Just-Us so not subject to the usual laws.

To those who say that diversity is a strength I say you are full of it. Diversity means NOTHING OR LESS THAN NOTHING IN A MERITOCRACY. Awards for scientific achieve fall into the meritocracy basket.This Marxist cra# is destroying education the professions and any meritocracy based endeavor.. Diversity of skill sets and relevant backgrounds are a good idea - diversity based on race ethnicity or ones sexual preference are anathema to a world that wants Togo forward and prosper.

Hard reality. White men have created most of the technology, culture, science and all other 'modern benefits' that we have. Most of the black and other indigenous cultures on the planet were still in the stone age when European white males had great art, great literature, great architecture, delivered water over huge distances, paved roads, iron, then steel, firearms, ocean spanning ships, and great music. And had had them for many centuries, even millennia. Pretending otherwise is just a lie.

How about they give one award for Excellence and one based on race and gender. That way everyone can ignore the fake awards. Its not sex, its gender idiots, sex no longer has any meaning to the left.

As much as I despise Scientific American and its fall from robust science reporting, SciAm merely reprinted a story from the website E&E. E&E was also a good balanced publication at one time. No longer.

Diversity by definition would have to include white males but they've even F'd that up. It's confirmation that White Supremacy is a joke but white excellence abounds !!! Oppressed Whites must fight the injustice. We must form our own unique gangsta culture and learn how to miss use and miss spell the language. We must axe each other how we can carry on the shtruggle!

Those who want to disregard the catalysts of civilizational advancement brought to the world by white men should respect their hate (and self-hate) by doing without all those things, and live their lives accordingly. That being nasty, brutish, and short. It's amazing how these idiots hate whites but love the white things.

NO unbiased person can now claim that this "magazine" is properly named. It is UN-AMERICAN by its action and blatantly promotes RACISM rather than science. SO, lets RENAME this formerly-respected mag to "RACIST UN-AMERICAN." Science? WHATEVER.

The vast majority of pharmaceuticals used in the United States come from China. That’s bad news for Americans, as both countries are now engaged in a new cold war. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved 53 novel drugs in 2020, which averages out at about one new drug every seven days. The United States, literally awash in prescription medication, is at the mercy of the FDA, a federal agency that approves drugs at an astounding rate. Why is this the case? The reason why Big Pharma comes with a capital B is because the FDA—along with a number of elected politicians—has a vested interest in the success of the pharmaceutical

One of the lesser highlighted aspects to Attorney General Merrick Garland using the FBI to investigate parents as domestic extremists when they attend school board meetings, is that Garland put the prosecutorial process in the DOJ- National Security Division (DOJ-NSD). From the perspective of the general public, the DOJ-NSD has become a well known division within the DOJ in the past several years because it was within this division where the lawfare alliance constructed their political targeting operations against candidate Donald Trump. The DOJ-NSD is where the secretive title-1 FISA applications are created and submitted to the FISA court.

What this means simply is taxing people for money they have not earned or received. That's it in a nutshell. That definition should leave even those who have never had a course in accounting or finance shaken. Not only is Janet Yellen considering this, but the Democrat party is on board as well.

So he must be just grasping for anything he can having Biden in to speak at this point. I can’t imagine Biden helping him at all. Biden doesn’t have any ability to really draw anyone.
