Steak-Umms Hilariously Schools Leftist Neil deGrasse Tyson on Real Science

Steak-umm has been the one to slap down the fake science claims made by leftist “scientist” Neil deGrasse Tyson?

Who would have thought that sandwich meat maker Steak-umm would be the one to slap down the fake science claims made by leftist “scientist” Neil deGrasse Tyson?

Tyson is one of the left’s favorite “scientists” because he generally believes in scientism as a religion, instead of science as a process. And a recent tweet underscored that fact.

Last weekend, Tyson jumped to Twitter to bestow upon his mind-numbed followers the gem that “Science” is “true” even if naysayers don’t “believe it.”

Check out this nugget of pseudo wisdom: “The good thing about Science is that it’s true, whether or not you believe in it.”

This is science as a religion, not science as it is. Amusingly, Steak-umm slapped Tyson down with an offhanded, “Log off bro.”

But Steak-umm had an even better follow-up tweet saying: “the irony of neil’s tweet is that by framing science itself as ‘true’ he’s influencing people to be more skeptical of it in a time of unprecedented misinformation. science is an ever refining process to find truth, not a dogma. no matter his intent, this message isn’t helpful.”

In other words, science is not “truth.” Science is a process to find the best explanation for what we observe. Sometimes we alit on theories that seem to hold true for a long time — the theory of relativity is working well still today. Other times — such as when science felt that the sun revolved around the earth — we find contrary facts that make more sense.

But, who would have thought that Steak-umm would have been the voice of reason on science?

Florida Governor Offers Pardons to Anyone Convicted of COVID Infractions

That’s one way to take a stand.

Every day, it becomes more obvious that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has dreams of running for President in 2024, and this week was no exception. The Sunshine State politician has aligned himself heavily with in-state political heavy-hitter Donald Trump on just about any issue out there, even taking some of these ideologies further than the former President himself. It seems as though DeSantis has a rather large grudge with COVID-19 precautions as well, consistently pushing for Florida to move quickly and sternly toward unfettered freedom on the matter.  He was one of the first state lawmakers to rescind coronavirus restrictions, and has made a very public show of it all, which has belied his belief in a higher political calling. On Wednesday, DeSantis took another very public shot at those who continue to see coronavirus as a public health threat in need of government intervention. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will pardon anyone in the Sunshine State charged for not wearing masks or socially distancing — breaking the news live on air to a gym-owning couple who were facing jail time for defying coronavirus safety recommendations. The Republican governor made the unexpected announcement on Fox News Wednesday as he decried county officials penalizing people. “It’s a total overreach,” he told Laura Ingraham. “These things with health should be advisory, they should not be punitive.” The governor did not mince his words. He broke the news of his pardon directly to Mike and Jillian Carnevale, who faced up to 120 days in jail for repeatedly allowing people to forgo masks at their gym in Plantation in Broward County. “I’m glad you have Mike and Jillian on, and I’m also glad to be on to be able to say that effective tomorrow morning, I’m going to sign a reprieve under my constitutional authority,”…

McCarthy Defies Trump and MAGA, Says ‘No One’ is Questioning 2020 Election Results

One has to wonder how uncomfortable Trump could make things for McCarthy in the coming months.

There is a major rift within the Republican Party in 2021, and the deepest, darkest parts of this crevasse plays host almost exclusively to conversations on a single subject:  The 2020 election. The MAGA Movement, which represents the far-right end of the GOP, believes wholeheartedly that Donald Trump was cheated out of the election, either by the work of Dominion Voting Systems or via Democratic balloting procedures that were tilted in the direction of the liberal left.  Of course, none of his legal surrogates have been able to get a judge to so much as listen to their case, and those who spoke on the subject of Dominion often found themselves on the receiving end of defamation lawsuits totaling over one billion dollars. On the opposite side of this field of battle in the GOP’s civil war, the “establishment” Republicans have been lining up, urging calm and a return to their less radical roots.  These conservatives are so concerned about the machinations of the MAGA masses that they’ve even threatened to break off into their own party – effectively sabotaging the entire right side of the aisle in the process. While House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has long been a supporter of Donald Trump, his latest statement will almost assuredly see him savaged by the far-right. Hours after Rep. Liz Cheney was ousted from her Republican leadership position for rebuking former President Donald Trump’s ongoing claim that the election was “stolen” from him, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters, “I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election.” “I think that is all over with,” McCarthy, R-Calif., said at the White House, where he was meeting with President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell about Biden’s…
