  1. Intelligent action by data and facts. Right on!

    • @informationOD Finally, Einstein….Trump did not put a band on anyone. Over 40K people were allowed entry into the USA after the so-called band & the Clown TOTALLY ignored Europe where the virus entered the USA. The USA is now the one banned from entering many countries on the planet. He LIED about testing being available for all who needed one. To date, thousands of americans are still unable to get testing & the results takes too long to return. He was LATE every step of the way. think about it, we have the largest number of infected & deaths in the WORLD.🤡 Trump FAILED us all & they are laughing at us….nothing new, they’ve been doing so since the coronation of the Orange Clown.

    • @Adventure54 – At least he did more than any single one of the whinny demonrat. All you idiots ever did was whine and complain. Which one offered any solution???? Every single demonrat was calling Trump xenophobic and fear mongering when he banned travel from China. Don’t tell me they don’t have data because if they don’t they shouldn’t have open their trap. Change your party name to Blame Party and your motto should be “If it’s gone bad, it’s not our fault”.

    • JamieLan2011 I mean they defend every president so we know they are all obviously corrupt (DOJ and every president and every presidential candidate). Those 3 are obviously always corrupt. I’m speaking about how science is just as corrupt now.

    • Waryaa Wariiri the fact that you admit that science has been tainted by politics means we can no longer trust the scientists.

    • @Philip Erdman It must be painful being you. You believe in nothing because you’re easily tainted. the science can the trusted….it’s the politicians who can’t be trusted in today politics. It will all change as soon as Trump is removed from office. You’re the kind of loser who don’t vote just complain & whine. Science is not perfect, It evolves based on new information gathered on a daily basis.

  2. “The 2020 election is literally a matter of life and death,” the magazine added in a tweet. “We urge you to vote for health, science and Joe Biden for President.”- Scientific American

  3. “We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.” – Donald Trump

    • Fake Quote

    • @Oscar Medina “evidence and logic” along with other basic sensibilities are incompatible to leftist degenerate shitheads like you.

    • Are these called “educated” are same ones complaining that they can’t pay off their debt? Just because someone received a college degree doesn’t mean that person is “educated”. These are also the same group of people who claimed that there are more than 2 genders. Went to college but have absolutely zero common sense.

    • @I SUPPORT TRUMP that says that US has a flawed political system where the candidate with majority of the votes doesn’t win

    • @I SUPPORT TRUMP a quick look at the financials and quality of life statistics state to state, city to city and one can see that you WISH that were true.

    Trump: “I don’t think science knows, actually.”
    Science: “Hold my test tube.”
    Scientific American: “What science said.”

    • no… just no… you need to take that joke back to the drawing board…

    • Jay L. Humor is a sign of intelligence…..nothing funny here.

      @ The last farewell: This statement isn’t properly punctuated, that’s all. It is supposed to read:
      Trump: “I don’t think. Science knows, actually.”

    • The last farewell | September 16, 2020 at 4:06 PM | Reply

      @Jay L. – Tough crowd 🙂 I’ve fairly thick skin so take no issue or offense with your criticism. I’ll grant that the joke was rather weak, but cannot being myself to pour more than a modicum of effort into these. It’s YouTube after all.

      Trump and Putin walk into a bar without wearing masks. The bartender points to a clearly-visible sign on the door “No Mask. No Entry” Putin looks at the sign, smirks, and says “That sign does not concern me. I’ll have a vodka and tonic.” Trump looks at the sign, smirks, and says “That sign does not concern Putin. Now, how much do I owe you?”

    • The left cant meme

    A 175 year magazine broke tradition. Let that sink in.

  7. Just read these threads lol

      @brian nemeth It’s amazing how you can’t follow a thread. I never said the dissenting scientists were bought off, you did. I said they are intimidated by having their funding cut off and by being removed from positions. You say something and then claim I said it. No wonder you’re a Biden supporter, seems like you two have about the same mental clarity.

    • @TheFloridaPappy amazing how you see the faults in others when you do exactly the same. I never claimed to be a Biden supporter, I’m not liberal or Democrat. I’m a tree hugger representing deep rural WA. Drop by next time you’re in Nemah.

    • @brian nemeth Faults in others when I do exactly the same? You’re going to have to explain that one to me. So I got your politics wrong, so ’bout that, but the upcoming election is realistically between two parties and when you were insulting me assuming I’m a Trump supporter, it was logical to assume you were for Biden. BTW, I’ve got no problem with hugging trees.

    • @Dave , luciferians run the circus…

    • @brian nemeth , you are a clueless indoctrinated sheeple too ignorant to challenge the lies you have been pumped full of. Eventually the truth will be made clear to you fool…

  8. for those who don’t know, he also thinks that your life is like a battery, no need to work out, no need to eat right. When your battery life force is empty you die.

      Well he’s been looking a bit run down lately. Time to plug him in for a quick recharge. The problem is that both his bottom and his top are negative.

    And still no discussion of a vaccine to protect us against future infections like D. Trump.

  14. More scientists and engineers need to run for office. Too many “C” and “D” students, now adults, getting elected on fear and religious affiliation.

    • So you don’t support Biden, right?

    • Angelika Hemker | September 16, 2020 at 5:46 PM | Reply

      MarcSylex I‘ve been saying that for decades.
      In China, many of the top politicians are engineers; one of the reasons the Chinese are so successful.
      And it may well have something to do with Angela Merkel‘s scientific background, that coronavirus numbers and deaths in Germany remained low.
      But try to co vince a fervent, bible-thumping Trump supporter.
      You will never get through.

  15. Perfect! ✨

  16. Thankyou, for your expertise. TRUTH MATTERS !
