    1. @ILLEGITIMATE DEMENTED Joe
      Ok Canadian from the nursing home.
      How many accounts do you have to spread propaganda?

    2. What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    3. @B. T. ooops.. I must hit a nerve in you , Chinese bot.. keep blowing mushroom clouds with hunter

    4. @Sarah F. 4.2 you probably think you’re the top banana where in fact you’re shallow , you are constipated too

  1. Science has been creating “lightning rods” since the time of the Spanish Inquisition. What used to be the Inquisition is now called conservatism.

    1. *Mike Pence: Biden Broke Our Deal With the Taliban*

      *It’s a foreign-policy humiliation unlike anything our country has endured since the Iran hostage crisis.*
      Aug 17, 2021 The WALL STREET JOURNAL

      *‘The likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country [of Afghanistan] is highly unlikely,” President Biden confidently proclaimed in July. “There’s going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy.”*

      One month later, the scenario Mr. Biden deemed impossible has become a horrifying reality. In recent days, the world has watched panicked civilians cling to U.S. military aircraft in a desperate attempt to escape the chaos unleashed by Mr. Biden’s reckless retreat. American diplomats had to beg our enemies not to storm our embassy in Kabul. Taliban fighters have seized scores of American military vehicles, rifles, artillery, aircraft, helicopters and drones.

      The Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan is a foreign-policy humiliation unlike anything our country has endured since the Iran hostage crisis.

      It has embarrassed America on the world stage, caused allies to doubt our dependability, and emboldened enemies to test our resolve. Worst of all, it has dishonored the memory of the heroic Americans who helped bring terrorists to justice after 9/11, and all who served in Afghanistan over the past 20 years.

      In February 2020, the Trump administration reached an agreement that required the Taliban to end all attacks on U.S. military personnel, to refuse terrorists safe harbor, and to negotiate with Afghan leaders on creating a new government. As long as these conditions were met, the U.S. would conduct a gradual and orderly withdrawal of military forces.

      Unanimously endorsed by the United Nations Security Council, the agreement immediately brought to Afghanistan a stability unseen in decades. In the past 18 months, the U.S. has not suffered a single combat casualty there.

      By the time we left office, the Afghan government and the Taliban each controlled their respective territories, neither was mounting major offensives, and America had only 2,500 U.S. troops in the country—the smallest military presence since the war began in 2001.

      America’s endless war was coming to a dignified end, and Bagram Air Base ensured we could conduct counterterrorism missions through the war’s conclusion.

      The progress our administration made toward ending the war was possible because Taliban leaders understood that the consequences of violating the deal would be swift and severe. After our military took out Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani, and U.S. Special Forces killed the leader of ISIS, the Taliban had no doubt we would keep our promise.

      But when Mr. Biden became president, he quickly announced that U.S. forces would remain in Afghanistan for an additional four months without a clear reason for doing so. There was no plan to transport the billions of dollars worth of American equipment recently captured by the Taliban, or evacuate the thousands of Americans now scrambling to escape Kabul, or facilitate the regional resettlement of the thousands of Afghan refugees who will now be seeking asylum in the U.S. with little or no vetting. Rather, it seems that the president simply didn’t want to appear to be abiding by the terms of a deal negotiated by his predecessor.

      Once Mr. Biden broke the deal, the Taliban launched a major offensive against the Afghan government and seized Kabul. They knew there was no credible threat of force under this president. They’ve seen him kowtow to anti-Semitic terrorist groups like Hamas, restore millions of dollars in aid to the Palestinian Authority, and sit by earlier this year while thousands of rockets rained down on Israeli civilians.

      Weakness arouses evil—and the magnitude of evil now rising in Afghanistan speaks volumes about the weaknesses of Mr. Biden. To limit the carnage, the president has ordered more troops to Afghanistan, tripling our military presence amid a supposed withdrawal.

      After 20 years, more than 2,400 American deaths, 20,000 Americans wounded, and over $2 trillion spent, the American people are ready to bring our troops home.

      But the manner in which Mr. Biden has executed this withdrawal is a disgrace, unworthy of the courageous American service men and women whose blood still stains the soil of Afghanistan.

    2. @Adam Parisi it does say that it statistically lowers the chance. There doesn’t need to be absolute answers. Just precautions.

    3. @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 I’m sorry…. I thought this video was about Covid and science…..you must’ve been chomping at the bit to get your message out. I’ll bet you think your message was smart and clever however, it’s terribly one sided and certainly not the whole story.

    4. @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 Wow a guy who believed Rupert. I didn’t think any of you still existed.

  2. If maga supporters were around when Copernicus said the earth revolves around the sun, they’d be the ones who wanted to burn him at the stake.

  3. This is how a public servant should carry themselves. What an inspiration Dr Green is amid all the stupidity and small-mindedness of the QOP

  4. Stupid people will always be jealous of smart people…. And they will display that jealousy in a very stupid way….Like gathering to protest proven science…

    1. @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 without liberalism, there would be nothing worth being conservative about.

    2. @Adam Parisi
      Spoken like a party man . No plan or reason . No logic to point to . Just ridicule at the most base level .
      Don’t think anything through , don’t try to help . Just make fun of people like a 6 year old .

    3. @Adam Parisi
      You made up a political party and then referred to it by another . That’s not only childish , it says why there is no logic to what your saying .
