Scientific American writer Anil Ananthaswamy analyzes current thinking on the odds you’re living in a vast computer simulation. (If so, should ‘base reality’ give you a 2020 do-over?)
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says it’s politically impossible to do an independent probe for nursing home COVID-19 deaths after his controversial order requiring the homes to admit elderly Coronavirus carriers.
Best-selling author Shelby Steele, a veteran of the Civil Rights movement, says the current protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death have no clear objective, and an exclusive focus on police brutality, when the Black community could take more personal responsibility to improve their lot in life. His nearly-nine-minute remarks on Mark Levin’s show […]
A veto-proof super-majority of Minneapolis city council members say they support a move to defund the police — in the wake of the death of George Floyd — and to find a new way to do public safety with racial justice? Could this radical idea actually help reinvent an age-old approach to law enforcement that, […]
Engineering, physics, astronomy, and the hard sciences are essential for manned space flight, but this quote from SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is the power that will actually take us to Mars. If you can harness it, it’s the force that will utterly change your life for the better. Bill Whittle Now with Scott Ott is […]
Bill Whittle’s first reaction to videos of violent protests across the nation in the wake of George Floyd’s death under the knee of a police officer was rage at the lawlessness.

As Governors like Greg Abbott of Texas begin to lift stay-at-home orders and we start to re-open business and go back to work, how can we tell if it’s going well…or not. Since many don’t trust the media, or politicians, and assume they’ll continue to focus on catastrophe, how can you make a prudent decision […]
Due to Christmas travel and work schedules for Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green, this is a good week for you to dip into the archives and watch shows you missed, or you want to see again.
Bill Whittle Now with Scott Ott now has 300 episodes in the can, and we pause to consider how Bill got into this political realm, how it has changed since the blogs of 2002 in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, through the Tea Party movement, and where his hope lies for the future in the age of Trump.

Memes and hashtags multiply with “OK Boomer” (or #OKBoomer), a sarcastic slap from Gen Z to mock their elders who created this mess — whether that’s climate change, wars, political division, economic hardship, lack of health care, and more. Bill Whittle thinks it’s funny…at first. #EpicRant warning. #OKSnowflake
Theoretical physicist Sean Carroll at California Institute of Technology is among the growing cadre of scientists embracing a kind of multiverse theory that builds on Schrodinger’s insight about the power of observation to fix location of an object in the quantum realm.
Now it looks like a big win for ISIS, but what can President Trump do after the U.S. pull-out from Northeast Syria? The loss of intel on the ground from our abandoned Kurdish allies, the release/escape of terrorist prisoners, and the perception of U.S. apathy, creates conditions for an Islamic State revival. Is there a U.S. position somewhere between warmongering and isolationism?
The National Basketball Association (NBA) has a reputation for allowing players to speak out on issues of justice and discrimination. Some call it ‘the woke league’.
