== The "Acid Rain" Scare and the Science-Industrial Complex People who can recall or who are aware of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s farewell speech to the nation in January 1961 usually remember it for his use of the phrase “military-industrial complex.” Eisenhower wrote: This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence—economic, political, even spiritual—is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. It is not an understatement to say that Eisenhower’s warning not only was unheeded but also was prophetic, and the endless military involvement of US armed forces around the world for the past half century is proof that the president was right. However, the speech contained another warning about the role of science and scientists in our society that also went unheeded: == 🤡🌎😤😡🤬🦅💰🎯☄️🐉💥💡😊😉🤡 Please double check to make sure y'all are still subscribed.

== SURVEY: NBA Vets Snub LeBron for ‘Best Player,’ Choose Kevin Durant NBA star and hardcore left-wing activist LeBron James has lost the “best player” spot to Kevin Durant in a new survey of ex-NBA players. The Athletic surveyed 118 former NBA players and asked them who they thought were the best players and coaches, what players are future stars, and what teams are the best for the 2021 season. Unfortunately for the left-wing James, he only pulled in second, losing by more than ten points to Brooklyn Nets star Durant. == 🤡🌎😤😡🤬🦅💰🎯☄️🐉💥💡😊😉🤡 Please double check to make sure y'all are still subscribed.

== Trump Media & Technology Group reaches mega deal with Rumble Palm Beach, FL — On Tuesday, the Trump Media & Technology Group announced it had reached a deal with Rumble to provide video services for the upcoming TRUTH social. Rumble will provide video and streaming service for the platform. In addition, TMTG and Rumble are also in negotiations regarding streaming service. According to the announcement, if an agreement is reached, Rumble will provide infrastructure and video delivery services for TMTG’s Subscription Video On-Demand product, TMTG+. In the release, former President Donald Trump said, “As part of our mission, TMTG continues to align with service providers who do not discriminate against political ideology. Therefore, I have selected the Rumble Cloud to serve as a critical backbone for TMTG infrastructure. TMTG has already launched Truth Social on the Rumble Cloud for invited guests only, and the initial Beta launch has been excellent. America is ready for TRUTH Social, and the end to cancel culture.” The TRUTH social platform is expected to launch in early 2022. Trump and his team made headlines when they announced the new platform after many expected him to partner with existing media platforms. Rumble has become popular with conservatives as a YouTube alternative. Many conservatives have departed YouTube entirely to find a better service and relationship with Rumble. == 🤡🌎😤😡🤬🦅💰🎯☄️🐉💥💡😊😉🤡 Please double check to make sure y'all are still subscribed.
