Re: “Airman at local Air Force Base is accused of ties to white nationalist groups

This article seems written by ANTIFA--itself an extremist group--and assisting in their hypocritical mission to explicitly ruin good people's lives--simply for disagreeing with the way they *THINK*--no laws have been broken, nothing wrong has been done. This is ludicrous and surely won't end well for ANTIFA if they keep up this behavior. This could only provoke revenge, but hopefully, they get arrested for this stupidity.

Typical Democrat rhetoric, guilty until proven innocent, but not really innocent (even after non-guilty verdict) because he doesn't agree with our ideology's. Colorado Springs ANTIFA, lol, wanna know they are? Subpoena Colorado College, every Pokmon Game store, and random mom's basements.

Any other city this would be a 'train to empty your magazine' scenario.

Re: “Climate change, the opioid crisis and a proper defense

According to Wikipedia, Donald Black's wayward son is named Derek, not Jeremy, and it mentions no bounty for his murder.

Re: “Climate change, the opioid crisis and a proper defense

The militia in New Mexico illegally detaining people were arrested by The FBI

good, you stopped calling the Terrorist Klans"men" civilians. Trump hates the FBI and they're training to assassinate Democratic leaders because we don't obey the Racist Agenda

.They have been barking for decades about the dark people would be the majority, and that Rock &Roll and before that Jazz and Swing music was a satanic plot to bring The so-called 'white' so-called 'race' to down to the level of 'negroes'

spurred on by "the turner diaries" published 41 YEARS ago. If you're Christian and White etc but are oh, Catholic for instance you're a target. They're that obsessed with with Conformity they even exclude 'white' with black hair or brown eyes ... and they're Trump's Core.

Don't be deceived. The founder of StormFront, Donald Black, had to choose between his son Jeremy or the militia when Jeremy left.. Donald chose backing the thugs when they put a bounty on anybody who kills him. And Donald Trump said they're "good people". Trump Trolls, this time look these truths up before you try to flame me.

Re: “Climate change, the opioid crisis and a proper defense

99.9999% chance humans are causing global warming, and other science-based facts on climate change for Earth Day
I poached the title ...We already know that it's been happening. The U.S. Military have openly prepared for 20 years now with the scenario that's playing out NOW. Before that 20 years, most of it was classified. Volcanic and other seismic active have slowed the meltdown, but it's not enough. Drop the carbon fuels and increase oxygen.Thanks to the Carbon Cartel there's plenty of water that's too polluted for any other use, can be split into oxygen and hydrogen using direct current, release the oxy into the atmosphere and use hydrogen for fuel.The nay-sayers are quick to point out that electricity from any source has a 2/3 loss by putting it into batteries. fair enough But wait- THERES MORE! Running current through wire has the same effect! NOW HOW MUCH WOULD YOU PAY ? (copyright RonCo 1972)I'll tell you how much we're paying. Everybody in the world is paying our future and the lives of our kids. So the Carbon Cartel greed heads can have more money. I challenge any of you Deniers to drink the water coming off a coal mine or refinery. How about it, Bush Family, DO IT! Koch Suckers, DO IT! All the "journalists" at New York Post, National Enquirer, FOX, Maggot Hat klowns, DO IT! Put your money where your lying mouths are! Literally

Re: “When it comes to DUIs, officers play a crucial role

Government makes the most money from drug use just as they learned various schemes from the mob such as student loan sharking and charging everyone who has a job to do their job. Not to mention intimidation by authority.
There is a lot of money I hear to be made by ticketing bad drivers-speeding, following too closely ...

Feel free to argue the authenticity not using government authority or resources. A government organization endorsing this presentation is a violation of The Establishment Clause.

Re: “Air Force Academy hosts talk of Shroud of Turin's alleged authenticity

With all due respect to the historical figure of Jesus, the Shroud of Turin is not an image of anyone from the 1st century. There are numerous facts from the analyses that prove this, but the one that most non-scientists like to question is the accuracy of the radioactive carbon-dating results. (I have an M.S. in Physics with over three decades of research experience in the defense/aerospace community, and I have taught numerous Astronomy courses.)

In 1998, Cardinal Anastasio Ballestrero allowed a small section to be tested for radiocarbon dating by several labs. He announced the results that the shroud was dated from the Middle Ages. These results were published in Nature (1989):

Arizona: 646 31 years
Oxford: 750 30 years
Zrich: 676 24 years old

The results of radiocarbon measurements at Arizona, Oxford and Zurich yield a calibrated calendar age range with at least 95% confidence for the linen of the Shroud of Turin of AD 1260 1390. These results therefore provide conclusive evidence that the linen of the Shroud of Turin is mediaeval.

Since then there have been several attempts to discount the radiocarbon dating result by claiming that the sample was from a mediaeval repair fragment rather than the image-bearing cloth. These claims have been scientifically refuted:

A Skeptical Response to Studies on the Radiocarbon Sample from the Shroud of Turin, Thermochimica Acta (2005)

"Investigating a Dated piece of the Shroud of Turin", Radiocarbon (2010)

"Dating the Turin Shroud: An Assessment". Radiocarbon (1990)

Then there are those who claim that the shroud "has unexplainable characteristics that cannot be reproduced by human means". But in 2009 a professor of organic chemistry reproduced the image using materials and techniques that were available in the Middle Ages.

I my classes I use climate deniers as teaching moments to demonstrate classic fallacies of logic. In this case proponents of the authenticity of the Shroud rely on cherry-picking to try to prove their belief.

I am surprised that a government educational institution (USAFA) would appear to be promoting a particular religion, in violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...".

I am so glad that we have people like Mikey Weinstein (Military Religious Freedom Foundation), who expose any evangelical and fundamentalist proselytizing in the military. I support anyone who is truly American and who supports the principles that the Unites States was founded on.

Re: “Airman at local Air Force Base is accused of ties to white nationalist groups

If this is true, he should be through. However, on a side note, isn't it a bit problematic to have an anonymous source publicly making accusations against a named individual? It's not mentioned in the article, but if the Air Force is also being prevented from knowing the identity of this person, doesn't that raise an issue of due process and the right to confront one's accuser?

Re: “Air Force Academy hosts talk of Shroud of Turin's alleged authenticity

My apologies to all the believers. As a pan (or panentheist, haven't decided yet, but I'm leaning toward the former), I've got no truck with Jesus or your beliefs.

My comment was spontaneous push-back agin the post of Bob Fritch. It was quite Trumpian (trollish) of me to stoop to his level, especially when folks who wear shoes that don't fit might get caught up in it.

Carry on.

Re: “Air Force Academy hosts talk of Shroud of Turin's alleged authenticity

Uh, duh, guess where the SAMPLE used for carbon dating was taken from??? From where NUNS in the MIDDLE AGES repaired the cloth after one od SATAN'S numetous attempts to destroy the Shtoud!!! God will NOT permit the cult of "science" to PROVE His existence. So tell me, skeptics, how did ANYONE in the Middle Ages "paint" the image on the Shroud in the negative? Uh, duh, photography wasn't invented yet. ADDITIONALLY,scientists have NOW 3-D'd it. Lol. And BTW, you aren't WORTHY to use th ed Dhroud even as toilet paper. Ugh.

Re: “Air Force Academy hosts talk of Shroud of Turin's alleged authenticity

Trying to censor the free exercise of religion during a free period, not during duty, is completely against what the Constitution on our country stands for. It's awesome that any group of people professing any faith can meet in between their schedule of calls, something the author of this article does not understand as they never went to USAFA.
