[From “Why Electing Blacks Is Disaster for Whites”]

Access to the ballot box has always been one of the main goals of the civil rights movement. The 1965 Voting Rights Act was a great victory. It outlawed literacy tests and gave the national government oversight over elections in places where less than 50 percent of the non-white population was registered[…]
Nevertheless, these many accomplishments have not improved the lot of ordinary blacks. The very opposite is true in black-dominated cities such as East St. Louis[…]
Why, then, do blacks persist in pursuing this electoral strategy? Why do they still complain of “voter suppression”?[…]
The conventional explanation is that both Democrats and Republicans have pushed voting despite its dystopian impact[…]For Republicans, increased black voting makes it easier to draw “majority-minority” districts that concentrate blacks while “whitening” adjacent areas to elect more Republicans[…]
For Democrats, it’s all about electing other Democrats. Jackson, MS, is a disaster, but come election day, there will be no shortage of Democrat votes, their number no doubt augmented by lax voter and ballot security[…]
Blacks undoubtedly feel that government efforts to “cure” their alleged pathologies are less about kindness than disrespect for their habits. Recall the outrage when Daniel Patrick Moynihan called for a national effort “to fix” the black family[…]
Building a community around a single culture — black, Appalachian, or Orthodox Jewish — is like a lab experiment. Outcomes reflect the group, and this is equally true in Stockbridge, MA, and Jackson, MS. I argue that these outcomes better reflect what the group really wants[…]
Officials in Stockbridge, MA, would be unable to close the gap between poor blacks and middle-class Yankee whites no matter how much “diversity training” they got. Stockbridge storekeepers depend on customer honesty, while black newcomers might see this as an invitation to theft

[From “Democracy Is an Ideal Government for Jewish Influence”]

Joe Biden referred to “democracy” nearly a dozen times. Democracy, he said, was currently “under assault” and “under attack”[…]
Our polyracial vice president speaks in a similar vein. Regarding Donald Trump, Kamala Harris informs us that “we must recognize the profound threat he poses…to our democracy”[…]
Mainstream media is no better. The constant banter, on both the left and the right, is that democracy is all, democracy is under threat (by candidate X), and democracy must be protected and defended, no matter the cost[…]
There are several assumptions here[…]
These are:
•We actually have democracy
•Democracy is a good thing
•The only alternative to democracy is authoritarianism
•“Democracy” is a clear and obvious concept
Again, all four of these are false[…](1) Our current systems of government in the US, Canada, and Europe resemble true democracy in name only[…]
(2) Democracy is good for those who profit directly from it: the elite, the rich, celebrities, pop stars. But for the vast majority of people in the so-called democratic nations, the cost to their well-being is extraordinarily high[…]
(3) There are in fact several alternatives to democracy, most of which are superior to it—at least, if we believe our wisest thinkers on this matter. Even on the face of it, democracy, as a “rule by the people,” is actually mass-rule, or mob-rule[…]
(4) Throughout history, there have been many variants on the democratic model, so to speak of ‘democracy’ as a single, clear idea is ridiculous[…]
But the central point here is that, above all, democracy is a means by which a small, invasive minority—the Jews—have proven able to assume power, to acquire vast wealth, and to largely impose their will on a non-Jewish majority, all while keeping these facts largely hidden from view. “Democracy,” or rule by the people, is now a codeword for “Judeocracy,” or rule by the Jews

This is part of my theory about black antisocial behavior (especially oppositional defiance disorder) is not simply a consequence of not having had an involved biological father in the home, but rather about having a round robin of their mothers’ boyfriends and lovers in the home, acting imperiously and likely physically abusing the young boys who are an obstacle and burden to the men. They’re learning that authority is corrupt and capricious and its ability to impose violence is its sole source of legitimacy. Then they get sent out into the world in an essentially feral state and encounter white cops.

Every time you see an expose of alleged pedophilia it turns out to be a teenage girl voluntarily prostituting herself.

There is a class element here, low class girls from chaotic families are unchaste and men from all classes can take advantage of that. The solution is for low class families to put down the meth, stop cheating on one another, stop divorcing, and actually discipline their children for once in their lives. It’s not to join the white trash conspiracy theorist goon march that seeks to blame everyone but them for their daughters being sluts.

Waiting for the End of the World

We cannot even begin to fathom the non-stop ripple effects deriving from the 2023 geopolitical earthquake that shook the world: Putin and Xi, in Moscow, de facto signaling the beginning of the end of Pax Americana.

The Hegemon, under its self-concocted “rules-based international order”, essentially never did diplomacy. Now their version of “diplomacy” has degenerated even further into crude insults by an array of US, EU and UK’s intellectually challenged and frankly moronic functionaries.

Yet what really matters for Moscow are non-stop Eurasia integration; closer ties with “friendly global centers” China and India; increased help to Africa; more strategic cooperation with Latin America and the Caribbean, the lands of Islam – Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt – and ASEAN.

In 1848 these were liberal revolutions; today we have essentially popular anti-liberal (and anti-war) revolutions – from farmers in the Netherlands and Belgium to unreconstructed populists in Italy and Left and Right populists combined in France.

The difference now is that Russia and China are showing to the Global South that what American strategists had in store for them – you’re going to “freeze in the dark” if you deviate from what we say – is no longer applicable. Most of the Global South is now in open geoeconomic revolt.

That’s how the Xi-Putin view could make inroads across the collective West: show that this ersatz “modernity” (which incorporates rabid cancel culture) is essentially void compared to traditional, deeply rooted cultural values – be it Confucianism, Taoism or Eastern Orthodoxy. The Chinese and Russian concepts of civilization-state are much more appealing than they appear.

Globalist neoliberal totalitarianism of course won’t disappear under a sand storm. There’s still a maelstrom of toxicity ahead: suspension of constitutional rights; Orwellian propaganda; goon squads; censorship; cancel culture; ideological conformity; irrational curbs of freedom of movement; hatred and even persecution of – Slav – Untermenschen; segregation; criminalization of dissent; book burnings, show trials; fake arrest mandates by the kangaroo ICC; ISIS-style terror.

The MonkeyPox Anal Sex Bioweapon has reached a new phase in its contamination. Kids are being sexually molested by infected MonkeyPox GlobalHomo pedophiles. Yet unlike the HIV/AIDS GlobalHomo virus, they turn on the scare factor and raise the lockdown mandates again.

It’s ironic that Washington DC has a high count MonkeyPox infection rate. Are there that many homosexuals living there, or is it just a meeting ground for government sponsored anal sex orgies on the public dime?

What’s sick is how these GlobalHomo sex freaks are obsessed with phucing monkeys in the azz. No other species does this in nature.

As for Free Speech vs Muslims, there’s an argument in favor of the Muslims. They have every right to be outraged by the denigration of Islam and Muslims given the current state of Western ‘liberal democracy’. Ideally, totally unfettered speech for all should be guaranteed in a free society. If the West were genuinely committed to free speech for all, we should with free-speechers against Muslim hotheads. Back when the West stood for the right of Salman Rushdie to write a controversial book, it felt good to be on the side of free-speechers against Iran and Muslim firebrands.

But the notion that the current West is a ‘liberal democracy’ committed to free speech is a joke. Europe and Canada trample on free speech at every turn, especially to appease Jews and their two main allies, blacks and homos. Jews, once the biggest defenders of free speech(if only to have their say and gain power), are now the biggest enforcers of Censchwarzship(to hoard the immense power and wealth they’ve accumulated).

Jewish Power effectively neutralized free speech along with white identity and Christianity. So, the real dichotomy is NOT about the Liberal West that values free speech VERSUS atavistic Muslim dogmatists. The reality boils down to Muslims demanding respect for Islam on par with enforced protections for Jewish Supremacist Power, globo-homo vanity, and the Jungle Cult of the Noble Negro(and, off and on, feminist bitchery).

In the current UK where people are fined and/or hauled to prison for making a mocking tweet about Nelson Mandela, exposing the dirty machinations of Jewish Power, questioning aspects of the Shoah(as the iron-clad 6 million figure is more numerology than history), making fun of homos, and positing honest questions about racial/sexual differences, where is the commitment to Free Speech?

"Expect More Hysterical Screeching"—Leftists Can’t Help Being Self-Destructive (Which Is Good!)

The ROE vs WADE reversal ructions seem a good moment to point out that, during the crazy debate over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, when females seemed to have false memories of him raping them and exposing himself to them while he was a student at Yale, I commented "The Democratic Party Has Tipped, To Minorities, Women, Gays—Expect More Kavanaugh-Type Hysteria in the Future."

Specifically, I noted research shows women are considerably higher in mental instability (“Neuroticism”), and This, after all, is basically just a means via which they can express their feelings to each other and also alleviate a sense of guilt and social anxiety about their own “racism”, “white privilege”, or whatever they’ve bee told to feel guilty about.

As they take over society, and especially as they take over “caring” professions—such as teaching, medicine, non-profits and Woke activism—this can have serious, and self-destructive, consequences.

These women argued that “certain staff members had been tokenized, promoted, and then demoted on the basis of race.” There was an investigation and it found that the complaints were entirely unfounded. They just hated the supervisor.

So why did they make anonymous complaints? Women are physically weaker and fear open conflict or openly playing for status. Thus, they will generally use covert means to bring down a rival for status: whispering, bitching, spreading rumours about her being a slut or a show-off or making anonymous complaints.

White women, being higher in social anxiety than men or black women (see Race, Evolution, and Behavior, by J. Philippe Rushton) will be higher in extrinsic religiousness; competitive outward religious conformity—in this case to the Cult of Woke.

So, there may be some kind of silver lining to increasing female dominance of Woke organizations.

It means bickering, illogical decisions, time-wasting, and their being ground to a standstill.

And then of course there’s flat-out Black Lives Matter theft.

Based on the manifesto, the shooter doesn’t appear to have been stupid, and anyone who is not stupid is able to work out the cost-benefit analysis of these shootings. There is no benefit to speak of, and the costs, both to the individual and to right-wing politics, are extreme.

Ultimately, the only person who can actually be blamed for a mass shooting is the guy who did it. But of course, we live in a society, and all people are products of their society, so there is good reason to analyze what puts a teenager into a mind space where they think doing something so destructive is a good idea.

The most obvious and most important societal cause is political censorship. It has been understood since the printing press, mass literacy, and the subsequent political enfranchisement of the masses of people that political engagement is the only way to avoid political violence. What has happened over the last 5 years is a program of total censorship of American people who disagree with the government. This is total political disenfranchisement of the entire society. If you are only free to agree with the establishment, then you do not have free political speech (even if you do agree with the government).

When people are not allowed to express themselves and engage with society with words, some of those people will engage in violence. The various shootings that have been blamed on “white supremacy” have all happened after the US began its mass censorship campaign. Obviously, political censorship doesn’t justify shooting a bunch of random people. Individuals must be held responsible for their actions. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t say “if this person wasn’t censored, they would not have done this shooting.” The media is blaming internet speech, when this is literally the opposite of the truth.

News from the NATOstan-Imposed Meat Grinder

No one ever lost money capitalizing on the unlimited nonsense spewed out by the collective deer caught in the headlights also known as Western mainstream media – complete with showering Person of the Year awards on a megalomaniac, cocaine-fueled lousy actor impersonating a warlord.

The non-stop trashy parade of Western military analysts is now “assessing” that the first targets of an incoming, joint Russia-Belarus attack on the 404 black hole formerly known as Ukraine will be Lviv, Lutsk, Rivne, Zhytomyr, and why not throw Kiev in the mix straight out of a second axis.

Some facts though never change. If push ever came to shove Russia can conveniently defeat the whole of NATO as there is hardly anything “there”.

With its array of hypersonic missiles, Russia can knock out all NATO bridges, ports, airports as well as power stations, oil and natural gas storage, Rotterdam oil and natural gas installations, in a matter of a few hours. Europe would be shut off from natural resources. A dazed and confused Empire would be unable to move troops, any troops, to Europe.

This rinse and repeat tactic has led to (at least) 400,000 Ukrainian casualties. Call it the epitome of Attritional Warfare. Historians will relish that the whole scenario resembles the Battle of Agincourt, with French Knights playing the role of present day Ukrainians, and Polish/NATO mercenaries.

By the time this meat grinder is over an entire generation of Ukrainians and Poles will have gone to meet their maker.

NATO, as Stultifying Stoltenberg keeps reminding the world, does not do negotiations.

Which may be a blessing, as NATO may end up breaking up in myriad pieces, totally humiliated on the ground despite all its elaborate warmongering plans.

All this while Russia prepares “for yet another ‘defeat’, like retaking all of Donbass and then… Who knows what then. A quick win for Russia would be a loss because NATO would still exist. No, Russia has to pace this so as it sucks in NATO into the grinder.”

Somewhere in her private pantheon, Pallas Athena, Goddess of Geopolitics, is immensely enjoying the show. Oh, wait; she’s actually reincarnated, and her name is Maria Zakharova.

Ability to interbreed does not necessarily make two animals members of the same species. At best one can conclude that it is highly probable that they are members of the same genus. But sometimes even different genera can interbreed (given the opportunity). An example might be the African and Asian elephants mentioned above. If the overall DNA is close enough and number of chromosomes match they can likely interbreed and produce a hybrid. Human classifications are constructs that do not determine the breeding capabilities of organisms, although breeding capabilities may be used in defining classifications.

There is plenty of scientific evidence to support a hypothesis that negroids are a different species (or even a separate genus between homo and pan) – even more so than for many other animal classifications such as chimpanzees, elephants, and others that are broken down into different species and genera – if consistent taxonomic principles were applied.

However, since about 1950 this cannot even be discussed by scientists without destroying their careers. James Watson, Nobel prize winning discoverer of DNA, certainly understood the implications of his and subsequent work by others.

He was villified by the media and the scientific community for merely hinting that SSAs were different and unlikely to succeed.

Of course this is all kind of meaningless. In reality, they are what they are regardless of how labeled and classified. The problem is the leftist/liberal/PC rejection of truth and suppression of open discussion of anything contrary to their preconceived ideology.

The Empire Is Not Done Torturing Afghanistan

Once upon a time, in a galaxy not far away, the Empire of Chaos launched the so-called “War on Terror” against an impoverished cemetery of empires at the crossroads of Central and South Asia.

In the name of national security, the land of the Afghans was bombed until the Pentagon ran out of targets, as their chief Donald Rumsfeld, addicted to “known unknowns,” complained at the time.

War crimes were duly perpetrated – some of them denounced by an organization led by a sterling journalist who was subsequently subjected to years of psychological torture by the same Empire, obsessed with extraditing him into its own prison dystopia.

But then, the US-backed puppet regime in Kabul collapsed not with a bang, but a whimper: a spectacular “data-driven defeat.”

Hell hath no fury like Empire scorned. As if all the bombing, droning, years of occupation and serial collateral damage was not misery enough, a resentful Washington topped its performance by effectively stealing $7 billion from the Afghan central bank: that is, funds that belong to roughly 40 million battered Afghan citizens.

Unlawful does not even begin to qualify the confiscation of assets from an impoverished nation afflicted by a currency in free fall, high inflation and a terrifying humanitarian crisis, whose only ‘crime’ was to defeat the imperial occupation on the battleground fair and square.

No one remembers today that the US State Department came up with its own New Silk Road idea in July 2011. The spin was to “turn enemies into friends and aid into trade.” The reality, however, was to prevent Kabul from falling into the Russia/China sphere of influence – represented by the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

In the end, the Americans did less than nothing. The Chinese, playing the long game, will be leading Afghanistan’s resurgence.

Afghanistan for its part will be welcomed into the real New Silk Roads.

Now compare and contrast with NATO, whose “new” strategic concept boils down to expanded warmongering against the Global South. At least we know that should NATO ever be tempted back into Afghanistan, then another ritual, excruciating humiliation awaits.

The new “Cinderella” movie would be more realistic if the Prince (of Crack) was the major drug dealer in town and Cinderella was a libtarded idiot with jungle fever who becomes a crack addict who gets pimped out and put out on the streets to earn him mo’ of his money. Her evil racist step-sisters (who heard about the 8 Ball partay in da hood and refused to go) tried to warn her she was traveling down the path of self-destruction but she wouldn’t listen and winds up with a black baby, living in the hood on welfare and being passed around to the drug dealer’s homies when she ain’t out on the street “workin’ it.” The “fairy godmother” who sets all this up just happens to be the sister of the drug dealer and functions as his recruiter who goes around looking for dumb white bitches to introduce them to “the life” and does so after she meets brain-dead Cinderella on the street one day. Later, she picks her up and takes her to the partay in a big white Cadillac with 24 inch rims and a leopard print interior.

Of course, at the big 8 Ball partay at the drug dealer’s crib when Cinderella suddenly has to leave and forgets something on her way out, the Prince of Crack tracks her down by axin’ ebberbody “who dis glass pipe belong to?”

The next hit movie could be “Rapunzelisha”- the story of a 24 year old black nymphomaniac who is trapped and locked in a tower block apartment by her mother who is sick of all the fatherless babies she done popped out and who are drivin’ her crazy. It doesn’t work because Rapunzelisha keeps throwing her 40 foot long dreads out da window fo’ da baby daddies to climb up and hit dat thang. Momma finally figures out what’s goin’ on when she catches a baby daddy climbin’ up dose dreads one afternoon, leans out the window and pops a cap on his ass and then installs iron bars on the window. The subsequent police investigation results in momma being sent off to prison for murder while Rapunzelisha gets moved into a Section 8 apartment by Social Services and has 17 chilren by the time she’s 33 years old and likes to point at all her chilren and scream, “Sumbody gots to take responsibility fo’ all dis! Sumbody gots to pay fo’ all dis!” The occupants of the other 20 houses on the street are declared to be racists once everyone of them puts up FOR SALE signs outside their houses.

Ok, I’m done- I’m not doing Snow White and the Seben Dwarfisses.

One thing for sure, these riots are not Islamic. Sure, many are children of Muslim immigrants and sure, some of them shout ‘Muh Muhammad’. But they are mostly into gangsta rap culture imported from the US. Their behavior is modeled on jungle culture of thugs and gangstas than on the pillars of Islam. These are more like BLM riots. Some argue that the problem is lack of assimilation.

Actually, the problem is these immigrants kids are fully assimilated into the Western New Normal of blackity-black, rap culture, youth thuggery, and ‘white guilt’. Most ‘Muslim’ youths are more into gangsta culture than Islamic studies. But, given the taboos against blaming blacks, people pretend the fault is with Islam.

It’s true that the West has imported a lot of Third World trash. But what passes for ‘Western Culture’ lately? Twerking, homo degeneracy, rap music, pornification of kiddie culture, tranny men running riot, and etc.

Can you blame the newcomers for holding such a civilization in contempt? And if anything, it seems too many of the newcomers have indeed fully assimilated to the ‘Western Culture’, one that made Rap music the #1 musical genre. And long before this happened, let’s not forget the white lunatics of May 68 and the disgusting Punk movement in the UK that celebrated anarchy and destruction.

[From "The Unabomber's Transgenderism"]

Mathematician and freelance terrorist Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber, has died in prison at age 81

Much has been and is being written about him, but his transgender urges have largely been memoryholed as part of the massive cover-up of the autogynephilia fetish that motivates many of the most prominent and intelligent M to F trans types

From the Washington Post news section in 1998:

GENDER CONFUSION, SEX CHANGE IDEA FUELED KACZYNSKI’S RAGE, REPORT SAYS

By William Booth September 12, 1998

Convicted Unabomber Theodore J. Kaczynski considered having a sex change operation when he was in his twenties and his confusion over his gender identity filled him with a rage that contributed to his bombing spree, according to documents released today[…]

To be precise, he wasn’t confused about his gender, he was aroused by the fantasy of himself as a woman

Here’s the quote from the court-ordered psychiatric report:

In the summer after his fourth year, he describes experiencing a period of several weeks where he was sexually excited nearly all the time and was fantasizing himself as a woman and being unable to obtain any sexual relief[…]

Great guy

So maybe society would have been better off if this autogynephilic had been encouraged to have himself castrated? One argument in favor of letting adult autogynephilic fetishists have themselves castrated is that while Theodore Kaczynski blew up all those people, a testicleless Theodora Kaczynski probably wouldn’t have

[From "Tel Aviv Colour Revolution"]

For a few months, a colour revolution had been brewing in Israel. Tens of thousands of citizens demonstrated, every Saturday night, predominantly in Tel Aviv[…]Over 250 000 persons participated in one demonstration in Tel Aviv. Then PM Bibi Netanyahu postponed his legal reforms until after the holidays[…]
Now we have learned something about the central causes of the movement, from the NYT. The NYT discovered, through US intelligence leaks, that the driver behind it and its coordination were supplied by Mossad and Shin Beth, the external and internal intelligence services of the Jewish State. It was not a complete surprise; Israeli media duly informed its consumers that Mossad staff were permitted to participate in the demos; and Mossad’s retired bosses were paraded by the rebels as their leaders[…]
Beside Mossad, the bankers actively supported the revolt. Private banks, Bank of Israel, financial structures – were all for the revolt. So were the Generals, the army and high-ranking officers. And the nasty Schwab, represented by Yuval Noah Harari, was also with them. Amusingly the Israeli government officials characterize the opposition as “the leftists”. Sure, bankers, the Davos crowd and spies are the new communists! Feminists and Soros’s people also support the movement. Meanwhile Justice Minister Yariv Levin has claimed that the US administration is aiding Israeli protesters against the coalition’s judicial reform plan[…]
Mr Levin stated that the new government has absolutely no tools – all the banks, the courts, and heads of the army belong to the opposition (or rather, the Deep State). Legal reform is needed in order to level the playing field. Trump found himself in a similar situation but he had no plans about how to fight[…]
The casus belli for the colour revolution was judicial reform. In other words, something of little importance

Blacks are actually overrepresented among homosexual transexuals and underrepresented among autogynephilic transexuals. Understanding the difference is key.

Homosexual transexuals are basically gay men who “become women to attract men.” They adopt an exaggerated form of femininity, to become “more women than the women,” one could see this as an example of the “zeal of the convert.” They are underrepresented among transexual activists, perhaps because their ultimate goal is crypsis, to be undifferentiated from actual women in order to better attract men, which open transexual activism and drawing a lot of attention to transsexuals as a group would interfere with.

Autogynephilics, in contrast, get off on the idea of themselves as women. Many maintain their attraction to women, which actual women don’t usually reciprocate. Thus they place a supreme importance on making women accept them as part of “muh sisterhood,” via PC activism and indoctrination. This leads to an inevitable conflict with certain parts of the radical feminist movement, which is currently gripped by an internal conflict, not unlike that which occurred between racial and religious antisemites in the 19th century.

Basically, the homosexual transsexual is the soldier who wants to make people think he is part of the landscape. The autogynephilic transexual is the Emporer who wants to force people to say he is wearing clothes even though everyone knows he is naked, by threatening to have them fired if they don’t toe the line.

The Idiocy of the Average - and Why It Matters

Reasonably intelligent people (for instance, the readers of this blog) tend to overestimate how smart everyone else is. About half of Americans are unable to correctly read a table and do a simple addition/subtraction calculation. Such is the banal reality of the American high-90s average IQ, which is still a dozen points above the world average.

You might have a good general appreciation of the different average IQs of the world’s major regions and appreciate that national wealth depends largely on a population’s intelligence, but putting the two together is quite tricky.

PISA website has sample math questions from the 2012 assessment, with six different levels of difficulty. Hopefully, this will give us a better perspective on what average national IQ means in practice. And why seemingly minor differences between them are important and explain the vast bulk of international differences in GDP per capita and general socio-economic success.

Level 6

I suspect that many of you can do it in your heads within a minute. But a majority of all the tested teens begged to differ.

OECD average: 3% (!!). Korea: 12%, Japan: 8%, Germany: 5%. The US, Italy, Sweden, and Russia were all at 2%; the Mediterranean was at 1%.

Some countries where a big fat 100% (rounded up) were unable to do this problem: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Indonesia, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Qatar, Tunisia, Uruguay.

The number of people at this level, the highest measured by PISA, is dwindling away into insignificance in Latin America and the Middle East.

According to Kremer/Jones, it is the relative strength of the O-Ring sector in the developed world which explains why a hairdresser earns five times as much in Belgium as in Brazil. Why is this O-Ring stronger in Belgium than in Brazil? Because in Brazil, only a tiny fraction of high school students can do anything much more complex than a simple, single-step arithmetic operation.

World IQ 82

image

David Becker has released a new version of the World’s IQ. Each country has a score showing the cognitive abilities of their citizens, this being a blend of genetics and the environment of each country, particularly as regards education and health. The world’s global score is 82. This is 12th percentile rank on the Greenwich Mean Intelligence benchmark of IQ 100.

What does IQ 82 mean in practical terms?

image

There has been a lot of animus against country intelligence scores. As explained before, data quality varies between countries. You already knew that, because if countries really differ in intelligence, that will show in the way they conduct themselves. Some countries will do forward planning, and others will do less. Some will conduct regular censuses and surveys, and others won’t. Some countries may have people who are more willing to cheat than other countries.

image

Naturally, country level data may obscure regional differences, and caste, tribe, class and religious differences. These are matters of granularity. Some countries are homogenous as regards talent (China may be in this category) others are not (India).

Country IQs may explain how that country conducts its affairs. Intellectual assessments ought to have explanatory value, thus leading to greater wealth, and discrepancies need to be investigated and explained. Two main sources of economic discrepancy are tourism and natural resources: the presence of either can inflate economies which lack human capital.

image

This list is useful and you may find it worth printing out. It would fit nicely on the back of a door. Yes, it mixes environmental and genetic effects, but it gives you a rule of thumb as to what countries, on average, are capable of doing.

I can only conclude that the Jewish families turned up, saw the hideous whiteness of the fascists at the park, and fled for their lives. Jews “love diversity,” remember. They “just feel comfortable” amid a “kaleidoscope of skin colours.” So while the fascist fun-day was a sea of hideous whiteness, the Family Fun-Day organized by Jewish Care would have been a kaleidoscope of color.

Well, sarcasm over. Jewish Care didn’t invite Muslims and Blacks to join the festivities, of course. The photographs aren’t of a Fascist Fun-Day but of a genuine Jewish Family Fun-Day. That’s why the photos are “hideously white.” Ashkenazi Jews flocked to Hertfordshire to enjoy what they assiduously deny to White British goyim: the exclusive company of their own kind. Jewish Care’s Family Fun-Day wasn’t enriched with Blacks or Muslims, which is why it wasn’t enriched with crime or obnoxious behavior either. While working tirelessly to turn Britain and other Western countries into Third-World swamps, Jews are careful to maintain ethnocentric islands amid the chaos and crime. If those islands are ever threatened with submersion by vibrancy, Jews have a secure place to flee: the ethnocentric enclave of Israel, where that age-old Jewish injunction to “Welcome the Stranger” is completely ignored. Israel doesn’t welcome black and brown strangers: it keeps them out with high-tech fences.

But what’s good for Jews — ethnocentrism and exclusion — isn’t good for goyim. Or rather, it is good for goyim, but that’s precisely why Jews want to deny it to goyim. Jews don’t want what’s best for Whites: they want what’s worst for Whites. That’s why both America and Britain have open borders and endless ethnic enrichment. Jews are in control of politics on both sides of the Atlantic, so governments pursue what’s worst for Whites, not what’s best. But I think Jews should remember a warning from their own Bible: “Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.” (Proverbs 26:27)

Granted, Scientific American is a lot more broke and woke today than 20 years ago. But still … the dumbing down of American discourse has really accelerated during the Great Awokening, and especially during the Racial Reckoning.

In sizable part, this is because of the triumph of the Theory of Intersectionality, which states that if black women have had the fewest interesting things to say about, say, evolutionary theory (or other difficult, non-hair-related topics) in the past, that proves they have the most interesting things to say about evolutionary theory in the present.

But … it sure looks like: no, they don’t.

Elections Show That Other Minorities Have Had Enough of the Democrats' Black Obsession

Victory in an 85 percent Hispanic district provoked many arguments as to why it happened. But there’s one simple reason why: non-black minorities are fed up with the lawlessness and Open Borders promoted by the Democrats. And Flores’s win is just another example that many non-whites want Law And Order, not Black Lives Matter.

This is just one of many rumblings that Democrats have alienated the foreigners they banked on as reliable voters.

The recall of San Francisco’s Leftist district attorney Chesa Boudin is a prime example. As soon as Boudin was sworn in January of 2020, he went to work dismantling the criminal justice system. He ended cash bail, eliminated gang enhancements in prosecutions, halted prosecutions of criminals found with drugs or weapons in routine traffic stops, and barred his prosecutors from seeking longer sentences for repeat offenders. He did this all in the name of combating “systemic racism”

“Our quest to achieve racial equality requires facing the painful truth that our criminal legal system has been and still currently is racist,” he tweeted in February of 2020.

This led to a massive crime surge. Black-on-Asian violence—unprosecuted by Boudin—turned into an epidemic

A similar result occurred in February when San Francisco voters recalled three Leftist school board members. One of the recalled officials, a black woman named Alison Collins, told Asians upset over the school’s policies that they had assimilated “white supremacist thinking” and were “house n****r

Blacks don’t seem to mind that black criminals are allowed to do as they please. Other minorities do seem to care, however.

Republicans should learn from this revolt against the Democrats’ BLM focus. Law And Order, tough immigration enforcement, support for basic standards in schools, and hostility to the BLM agenda are political winners. There’s no need to pander to minorities with Amnesty, criminal justice reform, and cringe paeans to how immigrants built America.

Many of them, just like the majority of whites, simply want politicians to stand up to black criminality and promise safe, stable communities.

“The Blake family is exhausted,” said an uncle, Rick Blake, who described a large and diverse extended family. “We are teachers, we are lawyers, we are government officials, we are everyday working people.”

I’m sure the NYT fact checkers diligently verified this.

“LNB stated she and the defendant [Jacob Blake] have three children together but have never resided together in the eight years they have been on and off. LNB stated the defendant is unemployed, has no vehicle, and would not tell LNB where he was currently living. LNB stated over the past eight years the defendant has physically assaulted her around twice a year when he drinks heavily.”

Eight years, three kids, and they never even shacked up let alone put on rings. This family is a walking, talking argument for a eugenics program. You can preach all that Christian moral stuff, but they’re clearly not going to listen. They might listen to some government sterilization incentives.

It’s also a good example of something that Lefties never seem to notice when they ruminate on the reasons for all the tension between the police and the black community. They are right that much of it is to do with the enforcement of “victimless crimes” like drug sales. But domestic violence enforcement often has a similar effect. The “police state” has functioned as a safety net which allows women to enjoy the embrace of thugish males knowing it can be called in if the going gets too hot. But unlike any other victim of crime, the woman will often change her mind, decide she wants to keep recieving the thugboi’s dick, and thus change her story. When her neighbor is asking why the cops were making so much noise last night, she doesn’t admit to calling them. No, she sounds off the familiar narrative about how raciss cops were there to terrorize the innocent African American community, and both begin to rant about how the cops never seem to care about the white collar white criminals on the rich side of town. There isn’t any ready solution other than to promote more public awareness, we obviously can’t legalize domestic violence.

Why the CIA Attempted a 'Maidan Uprising' in Brazil

A former US intelligence official has confirmed that the shambolic Maidan remix staged in Brasilia on 8 January was a CIA operation, and linked it to the recent attempts at color revolution in Iran.

According to the US source, the reason for staging the operation – which bears visible signs of hasty planning – now, is that Brazil is set to reassert itself in global geopolitics alongside fellow BRICS states Russia, India, and China.

Algeria, Argentina, Iran have already applied to join the BRICS with further interest expressed by Saudi Arabia, Turkiye, Egypt, Afghanistan, and Indonesia.

The US source drew a parallel between the CIA’s Maidan in Brazil and a series of recent street demonstrations in Iran instrumentalized by the agency as part of a new color revolution drive.

Ukraine is a black hole – where NATO faces a humiliation that will make Afghanistan look like Alice in Wonderland. A feeble EU being forced by Washington to de-industrialize and buy US Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) at absurdly high cost has no essential resources for the Empire to plunder.

Geoeconomically, that leaves the US-denominated “Western Hemisphere,” especially immense energy-rich Venezuela as the key target. And geopolitically, the key regional actor is Brazil.

The amateurish nature of 8 January in Brasilia suggests CIA planners got lost in their own plot. The whole farce had to be anticipated because of Pozsar’s report, which everyone-who-matters has read across the New York-Beltway axis.

What is clear, is that for some factions of the powerful US establishment, getting rid of Trump at all costs is even more crucial than crippling Brazil’s role in BRICS+.

The future, unfortunately, is ominous. The US establishment will not allow Brazil, the BRICS economy with the best potential after China, to be back in business with full force and in synch with the Russia-China strategic partnership.

Straussian neo-cons and neoliberals, certified geopolitical jackals and hyenas, will get even more ferocious as the “G7 of the East,” Brazil included, moves to end the suzerainty of the US dollar as imperial control of the world vanishes.

[From "The Last Days of the 'Holocaust'"]

Holocaust revisionism is perhaps the most institutionally reviled, criminally punished and socially persecuted field of research in modern Western history.

Yet, on the much publicized 75th anniversary of the Soviet liberation of Auschwitz, the gatekeepers of the Holocaust continue to give ground, kicking and screaming along the way.

The latest example is a new book by former Museum of Jewish Heritage director David G. Marwell, “Unmasking the ‘Angel of Death’,” which grants many revisionist challenges to the legend of Joseph Mengele.

Marwell’s work is considered the most well-researched mainstream biography of Mengele to date. In it, he cross references witness testimony from “survivors” with hard evidence and primary sources, only to conclude that their “memories” were “unreliable.” In other words, they are lying.

Stitching together humans to create siamese twins, smashing babies against train cars, attempts to transform boys into girls – all of the barbarism etched into the popular mind about a German in a labcoat, Marwell concludes, is nothing but a pack of atrocious hoaxes.

Marwell does stress that Mengele was a true-believing Nationalsocialist, which in his mind is an act of evil in and of itself. According to the book, he also at times overstepped ethical boundaries, for example when studying the effects of food deprivation on the human body, but the so-called “Angel of Death” made up for this by giving subjects superior accommodations and privileged treatment when the experiments were over. The twins and dwarves he studied were treated kindly, even if looking at living people as laboratory specimens in any context is dehumanizing. By and large, the book admits that what is commonly known about Mengele is fiction constructed by rumors, novels and Hollywood which have been held as true thanks to Jewish “eyewitnesses” substantiating the hoaxes post-hoc.

Mengele’s main achievement at the camp, which Marwell credits him for, was containing and preventing a massive outbreak of typhus at Auschwitz in difficult circumstances. Alex McNabb had previously written about this, and was attacked by Zionist commentators for it. This saved thousands of lives, Jewish and Gentile alike. Mengele was not motivated by hate and sadism. His most intimate letters and confessions show only a passion for advancing medical science.

I don’t think that [Bill Gates having had sex with a teenaged girl] happened, and even if it did, I don’t see why I should care. I remember being in high school and lots and lots of 16 year old girls were having sex. I was angry, of course, that they weren’t doing it with me. But why should I be particularly enraged if a few of them were doing it with Bill Gates for money rather than with Chad for their own gratification? Bill Gates seems like a prick but he never stuffed me into a locker.

I don’t think there’s gonna be much support for action purely on the basis that the crotchety old Bill Gates doing it with teenagers grosses people out. The LGBTQ community will rightly see the prohibition of sexual relationships on the basis that the rest of society is grossed out by them as a dangerous precedent.

Berlin Goes to Beijing: The Real Deal

The Scholz caravan went to Beijing to lay down the preparatory steps for working out a peace deal with Russia, with China as privileged messenger.

Yet schizophrenia reigns supreme, as Steinmeier, after a ridiculous stunt in Kiev announced an extra handout: two more multiple rocket launchers and four howitzers to be delivered to the Ukrainians.

So even if the “world” economy – actually the EU – is so fragilized that member-states cannot help Kiev anymore without harming their own populations, and the EU is on the verge of a catastrophic energy crisis, fighting for “our values” in Country 404 trumps it all.

Andrea Zhok proposes that the zombified collective West is now completely subjugated to a “State of Martial Law”.

Every other variable – from trans-humanism to depopulation and even cancel culture – is subordinated to the State of Martial Law, and is basically inessential. The only thing that matters is exercising absolute, raw control.

As I pointed out in one of my previous columns, Berlin and Moscow were keeping a secret communication back channel right to the minute the usual suspects, in desperation, decided to blow up the Nord Streams.

Cue to the now notorious SMS from Liz Truss’s iPhone to Little Tony Blinken, one minute after the explosions: “It’s done.”

There’s more: the Scholz caravan may be trying to start a long and convoluted process of eventually replacing the US with China as a key ally.

According to one of the sources, “if this effort is successful, then Germany, China and Russia can ally themselves together and drive the US out of Europe.”

Another source provided the cherry on the cake: “Olaf Scholz is being accompanied on this trip by German industrialists who actually control Germany and are not going to sit back watching themselves being destroyed.”

Moscow knows very well what the imperial aim is when it comes to the EU reduced to the role of totally dominated – and deindustrialized – vassal, exercising zero sovereignty.

So could this all be the foundation stone of the Berlin-Moscow-Beijing trans-Eurasia geopolitical/geoeconomic corridor? That will mean Bye Bye Empire. Once again: it ain’t over till the fat lady goes Gotterdammerung.

Sex and race are, to the left, mere social constructs, abstract systems of delusion and injustice that can be overturned by human will and social engineering. It follows, then, that leftists will support and celebrate men who reject the social construct of sex and claim to be women. And leftists do support and celebrate such men.

Triumph of the Trannies

It also follows that leftists will support and celebrate Whites who reject the social construct of race and claim to be Blacks. But leftists don’t support and celebrate such Whites. Quite the contrary. While Bruce Jenner, a man claiming to be a woman, is worshipped and rewarded, Rachel Dolezal, a White claiming to be a Black, is ridiculed and punished. Steve Sailer and others have drawn attention to this contradiction, but I don’t think they’ve properly explained it.

Why do leftists cheer when men cross the border between the sexes, but jeer when Whites try to cross the border between the races?

I pose those questions deliberately in that form to draw out the links between the left’s love of transgenderism and the left’s love of open borders. The Jewish libertarian Murray Rothbard (1926–95) described this aspect of leftist ideology very well in this passage of an otherwise long-winded and boring essay:

The egalitarian revolt against biological reality, as significant as it is, is only a subset of a deeper revolt: against the ontological structure of reality itself, against the “very organization of nature”; against the universe as such. At the heart of the egalitarian left is the pathological belief that there is no structure of reality; that all the world is a tabula rasa that can be changed at any moment in any desired direction by the mere exercise of human will — in short, that reality can be instantly transformed by the mere wish or whim of human beings. (Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature, Modern Age, Fall 1973)

Rothbard was right in general about leftism, but failed to explain that highly significant exception: why does the “exercise of human will” allow Bruce Jenner and others to become women, but not allow Rachel Dolezal and others to become Blacks?

Sex and race are both aspects of reality, but the left believes that only one of those aspects “can be instantly transformed by the mere wish or whim of human beings.” Why so? I would explain it by supplementing Rothbard’s explanation. Yes, he’s right when he says the left have a magical belief in the reality-transforming power of “human will,” but he doesn’t discuss what happens when there is a clash of wills.

The high and the low

Let’s look at transgenderism first. Men like Bruce Jenner and Jonathan Yaniv (pictured) have “willed” that men can become women and must enjoy unrestricted access to all female spaces. At the same time, some women — the so-called Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists or TERFs — have “willed” that men can’t become women and must keep out of female spaces. There is a clash of wills that is settled, for the Left, by the status of the opposing sides. In leftist eyes, the men have higher status than the women, which is why the men’s will prevails and the women’s will is rejected. But hold on, you might be thinking: How can the men have higher status than the women in leftist eyes? It’s easy: the transgender men have cleverly aligned themselves not with men in general, who are indeed of lower status than women, but with homosexual men, who are of higher status than women.

Trangendered men are part of the “LBGTQ+ community,” which lifts them above women in the leftist hierarchy. Take Jonathan Yaniv, the perverted and probably Jewish male, who claims to be a woman and has been suing female cosmeticians in Canada for refusing to wax his fully intact male genitals. If Yaniv spoke the truth, he would admit that he is a heterosexual male who seeks perverted sexual pleasure by passing himself off as a woman and receiving Brazilian waxes or entering female toilets to share tampon tips with under-age girls, etc. Obviously, then, Yaniv can’t admit the truth. Heterosexual men are wicked in leftist eyes and are well below women in the leftist hierarchy. Heterosexual men definitely cannot pass themselves off as women in pursuit of perverted sexual thrills.

Actual authentic lesbians

Yaniv and other “trans-women” must therefore align themselves with homosexuals to pass leftist purity-tests. As trans-women they claim to be members of a sexual minority, which triggers the leftist love of minority-worship. Indeed, Yaniv and some others go further than simply claiming to be women: they claim to be actual authentic lesbians. A pinned tweet at Yaniv’s Twitter account states that he is “One proud lesbian. I’ll never give up fighting for human rights equality. #LGBTQoftwitter.” Yaniv isn’t a lesbian, of course. Real lesbians — that is, real women who are sexually attracted to other real women — quite rightly reject fake lesbians like him, so the fake lesbians exploit leftist ideology again and accuse real lesbians of bigotry and hate.

Feminism has the concept of the “glass ceiling,” whereby women are unjustly prevented by sexist men from reaching the highest positions in politics, business and academia. Inspired by this, the fake lesbians have invented the concept of the “cotton ceiling,” whereby men like Yaniv are unjustly prevented by real lesbians from removing the underwear of said lesbians and having sex with them. Here is a trans-lesbian activist lecturing a sceptical TERF (i.e. Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist for those not up on the latest jargon) on the injustices of the cotton ceiling:

Trans women are female. When our female-ness and womanhood is denied, as you keep doing repeatedly, that is transphobic and transmisogynist. As I said earlier, all people’s desires are influenced by an intersection of cultural messages that determine those desires. Cultural messages that code trans women’s bodies as male are transphobic, and those messages influence people’s desires. So cis queer women who are attracted to other queer women may not view trans women as viable sexual partners because they have internalized the message that trans women are somehow male.

The comparison to what cis males say also makes no sense. What trans women are saying is that we are women, and thus should be considered women sexually, and thus be considered viable partners for women who are attracted to women. What cis males are saying is that queer women shouldn’t be exclusively attracted to women, which is completely different. (The Cotton Ceiling? Really?, Femonade blog, 13th March 2012)

It’s not “completely different,” of course. In both cases, people with penises are “saying” (and willing) that real lesbians should have sex with them. In both cases, real lesbians would be encountering the male genitals of real men. But the trans-activist believes in an act of verbal transubstantiation whereby a trans-lesbian possesses a “female penis” that, despite all appearances, is “completely different” to the nasty and objectionable penis of a “cis male.”

Aspects of religious psychology

I use the term “transubstantiation” deliberately. It’s a term from Catholic theology that refers to the supernatural process whereby wafers and wine transform into the flesh and blood of Christ during the celebration of Holy Eucharist by a priest. No physical or scientific test can detect this transformation, and to all appearances the wafers and wine remain unchanged. But traditionalist Catholics will insist that the wafers and wine are now truly Christ’s flesh and blood. If you disagree, you’re probably safe nowadays, but you wouldn’t have been in the past. It was very unwise to openly deny, let alone ridicule, transubstantiation in Catholic nations during the Middle Ages. And disagreements over the concept were central to the murderous hatreds of the Reformation. Those who believed in transubstantiation got very angry when it was denied.

This anger, which is part of the odium theologicum, is an important aspect of religious psychology, whether overt or covert — leftism can in fact be explained as a mutation of Christianity and Judaism. Overt and covert religions gain power by demanding belief in things that defy everyday reality, because such belief is difficult and requires a greater emotional investment. When we invest more in a belief, we have more incentive to protect it more strongly. And it is precisely because concepts like transubstantiation and the “female penis” are absurd that they are powerful. When we have an emotional investment in something we can’t prove, we react strongly when it is denied or ridiculed. That applies even more when we ourselves are subconsciously aware or afraid that our beliefs are baseless or false. Crushing external heresies can be a way of stilling internal doubts.

The “female penis” vs the “unisex brain”

And so religion and other forms of ideology can gain power by their contradictions and absurdities. However, in the clash between transgenderism and feminism, both sides believe in absurdities: the trannies insist on the concept of the female penis, just as the feminists insist on the concept of the “unisex brain,” namely, that there is no genuine difference between male and female brains. These two concepts are both biologically absurd: there is no such thing as a female penis, but there is such a thing as a female brain. However, if transgenderism and feminism are both powered by absurdities, why have trannies been winning the battle over the TERFs? Well, it’s partly because the trannies have the bigger, and therefore better, absurdities. For example, the “female penis” is an obvious absurdity, the “unisex brain” is much less so. Penises are out in the open, after all, whereas brains are hidden behind the skull.

And there is a continuum between a typically male brain and a typically female brain that doesn’t exist between male genitals and female genitals in the vast majority of cases. The psychological differences between men and women are a question of averages and tendencies, but the physical differences are generally stark and obvious (inter-sex individuals are rare). A certain group of trannies also have the stronger male will-to-power and love of battle, which is another reason they are winning the battle with lesbians. All this explains why the left supports and celebrates trannies as they cross the border between male and female. As a sexual minority, they have higher status than ordinary women. As a novel and exhibitionist sexual minority, they also have higher status than lesbians, who also have less will-to-power.

Better than Black

Indeed, as I pointed out in “Power to the Perverts!,” transgenderism has allowed some White heterosexual men to leap above the Black-Jewish lesbian feminist Linda Bellos in the leftist hierarchy. The White men are “transgender” and Bellos, although Black, is a TERF. In current leftism, transgender trumps TERF. Leftists therefore support the border-abolishing White men and not the border-erecting Black woman.

However, leftists would instantly support Bellos if those White men were claiming to be Black rather than female. Leftists want the border between male and female abolished, but not the border between Black and White. Why so? Again I would argue that higher and lower status settle the clash of wills. Rachel Dolezal “willed” that she was Black, while Blacks “willed” that she wasn’t. Dolezal was trying to abolish a border, Blacks were trying to maintain one, so a naïve reading of leftism would say that leftists should support “trans-racialists” like Dolezal just as they support transgenderists like Bruce Jenner. But leftists didn’t support Dolezal, and Blacks easily won the battle of wills. The border between Black and White stayed up, and Dolezal was ridiculed and punished, despite being more convincing as a Black than most transgenderists ever are as women.

In Athens raping a married woman was considered a less serious crime than seducing her. From the husband’s standpoint, it makes sense, since seduction means he can no longer trust her. And from the wife’s standpoint? Well, it wasn’t a legal system that cared much for the well-being of women.

The same mindset can be seen in these Q people. It would enrage them more to hear a Jew say “shiksas are for practice,”(something some actually do say) than “we must rape these abdominal shiksas to get vengeance for the six billion,” as they do in Q’s fantasies.* Regarding some women as worthy of short-term sexual relationships but unworthy of marriage is not the same as rape, but it’s understandable that it pisses people off, most notably the “unworthy” women and the low-status men they will eventually settle for. The solution is a socially conservative society where women hear the following message:

1. Sex and the City is not a depiction of reality. The vast majority of women will not be happy in that lifestyle.

2. If you do not follow the above advice and wind up happy, good for you. If you wind up unhappy, it’s not society’s fault or society’s problem to fix.

But this is difficult, much easier to create an alternate reality in which the women are nothing but victims. It’s the same with Q as it is with the feminist movement.

*I’m sure some of this occurred in the aftermath of the Holocaust and as part of the wider Red Army rape spree, but it’s not deeply rooted in Jewish culture.

For Those About to Rock, NAM 2.0 Salutes You

Those were the days, in 1955, at the legendary Bandung conference in Indonesia, when the newly emancipated Global South started dreaming of building a new world, via what became configured later in 1961 in Belgrade as the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).

Now, the Spirit of Bandung lives again.

Putin, Raisi and Erdogan did not meet to carve up the world. They met essentially to discuss how another world is possible.

The much-debated Turkish military operation in northern Syria in the end may be restricted to taming the YPG Kurds. The heart of the action will in fact revolve around how the Russia/Iran/Turkey/Syria alliance will make like impossible for Americans stealing Syrian oil.

The NATO/Five Eyes/Intermarium combo has absolutely nothing to counteract these (overland) facts on the (Heartland) ground except to throw a pile of HIMARS into the Ukrainian black hole. And of course, keep de-industrializing Europe. In contrast, those across the Global South with a keen sense of history – as in the grand debate of ideas in a Hegelian sense – and also versed in geography and trade relations are busy getting ready to hit (and profit from) the new groove.

As much as it’s a blast to survey all the instances of Russia playing strategic ambiguity to levels capable of baffling the entire, bloated “Western intel” apparatus, what is coming to the forefront is how Putin – and Patrushev – are now willfully turning up the pain dial to tactically exhaust not only the Ukrainian black hole but the whole of NATOstan.

Western governments are collapsing. Sanctions are being ditched – practically in secret. A Deep Freeze winter is a given. And then there’s the incoming economic/financial crisis, the Definitive Monster from Hell, as Martin Armstrong has made it quite clear: “There is no way they can get out of this other than default. If they default, they are worried about millions of people storming the parliaments of Europe…This is really a tremendous financial crisis that we are facing. They have been borrowing year after year since WWII with zero intention of paying anything back.”

Behind the Tin Curtain: BRICS+ vs NATO/G7

Fast forward to the contemporary era of techno-feudalism, and there now exists what should be called a Tin Curtain, fabricated by the fearful, clueless, collective west, via G7 and NATO to essentially contain the integration of the Global South.

The avowed top aim of the G7 summit is to “project unity” for the irretrievably failed Ukrainian state.

In Bavaria, Scholz pushed for a Marshall Plan for Ukraine – a ludicrous concept considering Kiev and its environs might as well be reduced to a puny rump state by the end of 2022. The notion that the G7 may work to “prevent a catastrophic famine,” according to Scholz, reaches a paroxysm of ludicrousness, as the looming famine is a direct consequence of the G7-imposed sanctions hysteria.

The fact that Berlin invited India, Indonesia, South Africa and Senegal as add-ons to the G7, served as additional comic relief.

It would be futile to expect from the astonishing collection of mediocrities “united” in Bavaria, under de facto leader of the European Commission (EC), Fuehrer Ursula von der Leyen, any substantial analysis about the the reasons that forced Moscow to reduce gas flows to Europe. Instead, they blamed Putin and Xi.

Welcome to the Tin Curtain – a 21st century reinvention of the Intermarium from the Baltic to the Black Sea, masterminded by the Empire of Lies, complete with western Ukraine absorbed by Poland, the Three Baltic Midgets: Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia, Czechia and even NATO-aspiring Sweden and Finland, all of whom will be protected from “the Russian threat.”

The role of the EU, lording over Germany, France and Italy inside the G7 is particularly instructive, especially now that Britain is back to the status of an inconsequential island-state.

Elections in every single EU member-nation are absolutely meaningless. Heads of national governments – Macron, Scholz, Draghi – are mere executants. No democratic debate is allowed: ‘democracy,’ as with ‘EU values,’ are nothing than smokescreens.

The EC is totally outside of any sort of control. That’s how a stunning mediocrity like Ursula von der Leyen was catapulted upwards to become the current EC Fuhrer.

“Ms. Brourman says, according to the court papers, that Mr. Conforth pressured her into a series of sexual encounters, some of them in his campus office, and later, after she had graduated, raped her in his Ann Arbor apartment.

A second former student, Ms. Brown, said she was pressured into a sexual encounter with Mr. Conforth after he told her he had feelings for her and pursued her for several weeks.”

There’s a difference between “pressure” and “rape.” The simple fact is that a lot of men are getting laid by applying non-violent psychological pressure to women. There are a lot of male feminist “gentleman” who try to wait until the woman wants it as much as they do and wind up waiting a long time. They used to say the issue was that women were “ashamed” and had “hang-ups” due to religious superstitions and that if we could get rid of that, women would want sex just as much as men do. But religion has been weakening for decades yet we’re as far from the pronhub fantasy as ever.

[Quote is two comments from the same thread, link is to the earlier comment]

About fifteen years ago, I got ahold of this remarkable little book titled I was an NKVD Agent by Anatoli Granovsky, who defected to the West in 1946. Other than its lack of a plot, it reads like a spy novel, so I don’t know how much of it is true, but it was published in 1962, so it has some relevance here.

One of Granovsky’s potential missions following the Soviet victory in WWII was to infiltrate the West. He was to use two angles: one of which was to seduce women of high social standing who were active in social justice (e.g. feminism, civil rights, etc.); the other was to be a fake priest/minister.

So according to Granovsky, the top tier of Soviet intelligence had already identified the ministry, the sexual revolution and civil rights as key weaknesses to be exploited by communists by the end of WWII. This would explain a lot.

I strongly suspect that MLK was indeed handled by the KGB, probably not only through Levison but others as well. I doubt he was personally aware of it, but a man like that doesn’t need to be — he’s most useful just stirring up trouble with his sermons, sleeping around and not asking questions about where the money comes from.

Conservatives now (shamefully) often claim King as one of their own, so this is still important. King’s false Christianity also has to be exposed as fraud. Why was a Jewish communist (who prominently defended Julius and Ethel Rosenberg) writing sermons for a Christian pastor, anyway? To spread the good news about Christ? Give me a break…

For those of us who had to endure MLK day rallies and indoctrination sessions in grade school, and hated them, this is vindicating.

Before we Americans can move forward with a truly just, truly Christian solution to racial strife in our country, this fake Christian state cult of MLK has to be banished.

I thought to reply to Almost Missouri’s comment but you’ve struck a bit closer. If anything, the Bible thumpers are narcissistic, megalomaniacal, and self-aggrandizing to presume that they know this entity (if it exists) and especially that they “have a personal relationship with” it. How lofty one must be to chat amicably every night with an entity capable of creating the Universe. An atheist or agnostic has the humility to accept that he is less than a grain of sand in the Universal scheme of things. What hubris does it take to believe that one can comprehend the infinite?

What irks me the most however is that all the thumpers are convinced that Bronze Age Semitic Jews had everything figured out, were in fact blood related to the creator of the Universe, and that my ancestors were retarded barbarians fighting off brown bears and wolves under several feet of snow. And yet these same geniuses complain incessantly about Jews controlling the Narrative and dictating our livelihoods. Hmm. Seems like a “can’t see the forest for the trees” problem.

That the JewGod thumpers coopted our “pagan” traditions and holidays, made their “New and Improved” “JewGod & Son” brand supersede the qualities of our gods like Dionysus is obvious and undisputed. Nobody thinks Easter is anything but our ancient Spring Festival or Christmas more than our winter equinox festival – they readily concede that they have no idea when JewGod Jr was born nor when/where he died. They just plastered “JewGod & Son” logos over all our pagan billboards and told us it was better this way.

We may in fact (many of us) need religion for a properly functioning civilization, but I’m certain that we don’t need the Jew’s God or his putative bastard. I’m certain that no Bronze Age Jew had a better understanding of Reality than I do. And given the skepticism around these parts of Jews and their motives and methods, it’s ironic that so many Jew-believers comment here in defense of this Jewish fable.

Yes, AGW is the latest deus ex machina for the messianically inclined Russian people, who are typically helpless on their own. I’m sure they believe it will solve all their problems and lead to a world of limitless vodka and girls in tight skirts and high heels. There should be an Orthodox Christian global warming Jesus wandering through a methane-emitting birch forest, but there probably already is and the rest of the world simply hasn’t been paying attention.

Siberia should have made the Russians rich long ago, but the problem is that it is under the control of Russians. If it had been available to American settlement, the expanse would be thriving with lumber mills, gas wells and technologically advanced institutions, and the population would be much higher. Down-on-their-luck Americans would be driving tanker trucks across the taiga, wildcatting, selling burgers to the workers and building highways. Instead there are ballistic missile behemoths lumbering on dirt roads through the forests while stunted, alcoholic Asiatic peasants scratch a living out of the frozen swamps and rivers that only flow half the year, scraping the riverbanks for fossil mammoth tusks and shooting beavers.

Tell me I’m wrong.

Perhaps Surprisingly, Indians REALLY Aren’t That Intelligent (On Average)

India is a confusing place. It is able to send hordes of extremely intelligent and highly-motivated scientists to the USA, yet its city centres are so chaotic that tourists have to pay street urchins to throw themselves into the road just so that they can cross it. The land of the Hindus is pursuing its own space program, yet vast areas of the country lack electricity, running water, and even people who can read. What does this say about Indian IQ?

The late J. Philippe Rushton gave an answer to this question back in 2007: Indians Aren’t That Intelligent (On Average). But much more evidence has since been developed.

A country’s average IQ is a massively important predictor of national accomplishment and national average living standards, as Richard Lynn and Tatu Vanhanen showed in their seminal 2012 book Intelligence: A Unifying Construct for the Social Sciences, as well as in their earlier book IQ and the Wealth of Nations.

For a few years now a German psychologist trained in political science called David Becker has been tracking down and collating every possible source that might permit assessment of any nation’s IQ. The young researcher, who is based at Chemnitz Technical University in East Germany (the city was known as Karl-Marx-Stadt under Communism) places all his research online so that those who criticise national IQ data can easily have their criticisms refuted. He clearly presents his methodology, in a way which Lynn did not, so that critics can see precisely what’s he’s done, how he’s done it and why: samples are rated for reliability, for example.

On this basis, Becker has also recalculated all of Richard Lynn’s much-denounced National IQs. Significantly, his calculations strongly correlate with Lynn’s—see the results at ViewOnIQ.org.

As part of this project, Becker has also updated and recalculated the Indian IQ, the most recent known study of which was published in 2015 [Gender Performance on Intelligence Quotient Test among Medical Students in a Government Medical College, By B. Uppu et al., IOSR Journal of Dental and Medical Sciences, 2015]

Incredibly, considering all of the “Raj from The Big Bang Theory” types populating science departments at America’s top universities, Becker’s meta-analysis of 11 studies revises the Indian average IQ downwards. Lynn and Vanhanen calculated it to be 82.2, but Becker has found it to be a mere 76.24.

How can a country with an IQ only six points above that of Sub-Saharan Africa churn out scientists of such high calibre and even begin to take people into space?

The answer: it is not merely in the geographical sense that India is a subcontinent—defined as a large mass of land separated by mountains from the rest of the continent. It is also continent-like in terms of its population.

India and China both contain over a billion people, but in China those people are overwhelmingly of one ethnicity, Han, and speak one language, Mandarin. The situation in India could hardly be more different.

The national languages are Hindi and (still) English. However, there are at least 780 distinct languages spoken in India, with most—though not all—of these languages being associated with a distinct ethnic group, rather as is the case with languages in Europe. Around 78% of Indians, and especially those in the north, speak Indo-Aryan languages that are distantly related to English, such as Hindi (41% of India’s population), Bengali (8%), and Gujarati(4.4%). Most of rest, particularly those in the South, speak Dravidian languages, such as Telegu (7.1%), Tamil (5.9%) and Kannada (3.6%). Some even speak language “isolates” unrelated to any other known language.(See Wikipedia’s List of languages by number of native speakers in India.)

There are also about 225,000 Anglo-Indians—down from some 2 million at independence in 1947. These are native English speakers, and usually Christian, ultimately descended from a union between an English colonial and a (usually female) Indian. Over the centuries, Anglo-Indians have married each other, effectively creating an ethnic group .

India is divided into 29 states and 7 territories, many of these states are named after their dominant ethnic group and its language. And, crucially, there seem to be exceptional IQ differences between these states, paralleling the way in which southern India is rich and northern India is poor.

Richard Lynn and Indian psychologist Prateek Yadav explored differences in intelligence between Indian states in a study published in the leading journal Intelligence in 2015. [Differences in cognitive ability, per capita income, infant mortality, fertility and latitude across the states of India, By Richard Lynn & Prateek Yadav, Intelligence, 2015]. Drawing upon data from all 29 states plus 4 territories, they found a very clear pattern.

Southern India is markedly more intelligent than northern India; the correlation between latitude and their test of cognitive ability being -0.43. Even more significantly, coastal India is more intelligent than inland India, the correlation between closeness to coast and average intelligence being -0.60.

The most intelligent (on average) area is a territory called Daman and Dui, two islands that were part of Portugal’s historic Goa colony, seized by India in 1961. (American pundit Dinesh D’Souza is descended from Goanese converts to Catholicism). Unfortunately, the authors do not calculate IQ scores, merely presenting average scores on standardized school tests. These islands are followed, in average score, by Kerala, a southern coastal state. The least intelligent, and also poorest, India state is Bihar, an inland northern state, close to Bangladesh.

Helpfully, Lynn and Yadav tested a host of other variables, meaning they were able to reasonably hypothesize as to the causes of these differences. A key factor: Islam. Around 20% of India’s population is Muslim and the Muslims overwhelmingly live in the north. Indeed, the Muslims were politically dominant in northern India—building the Taj Mahal and other such achievements—until the British fully took control in the nineteenth century.

The correlation between the percentage of Muslims in a state and its intelligence was -0.32. The authors propose that a likely reason is inbreeding. Hindus tend not to marry cousins, but Muslims tend strongly to marry their cousins. Cousin marriage elevates the probability of double doses of mutant genes, meaning that the brain works less well, so intelligences starts to fall. The more inbreeding there is in a nation the lower its IQ tends to be [Inbreeding depression and IQ in a study of 72 countries, by Michael A. Woodley, Intelligence, 2009]

Coastal India, they suggest, is more intelligent because there will have been greater breeding with European traders. This is most obvious when we consider that the most intelligent part of India is two islands which were run by Portugal until 1961. (American pundit Dinesh D’Souza is descended from Goanese converts to Catholicism). We would also expect that ambitious and intelligent Indians born in the interior would be likely to migrate to the wealthy coastal towns. Intelligence predicts migration, as the eminent intelligence researcher Arthur Jensen noted in his 1998 book The g Factor.

It is perhaps no coincidence that the only Indian citizen to win a Nobel Prize in the hard sciences—Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman (right)who took the Physics prize in 1930—was a Tamil from Madras. Madras is (where else?) on the southern coast.

It is India’s ethnic diversity which explains why it displays extremes: intellectual brilliance yet grinding poverty. This may be a problem for India, in that it is the population’s average intelligence—which predicts so much about the fate of nations. With its low average IQ, India is corrupt, unfair, and shambolic.

This is perhaps why so many highly intelligent Indians are desperate to come to the West—probably reducing India’s average IQ even further in the process, but certainly not improving the GOP’s chances.

Dysgenics and Low Creativity: Why China Can’t Save Civilization

It’s possible to derive some comfort from contemplating the Chinese. Sure, unless something radical is done, Western civilization is going to collapse due to the most intelligent women having the fewest children and massive IQ (and highly fertile) immigration from the Third World [See At Our Wits’ End: Why We’re Becoming Less Intelligent and What It Means for the Future, By Edward Dutton and Michael Woodley of Menie] but surely civilization will be preserved by the Chinese. Unfortunately, research is showing that this is just wishful thinking.

Thus the leading IQ researcher Professor Richard Lynn actually proclaimed in his book Dysgenics that China’s one child policy—introduced in 1979 and abolished in 2015—was the saviour of civilization. The strongly cultural desire in China for a boy and the abortion of female fetuses, meant that by the late-1990s, young males massively out-numbered females in China, showed Lynn. The females would naturally be attracted to the wealthiest and most educated males, as these males would be able to provide the optimum lifestyle for them and, anyway, females tend to sexually select for status because doing so, under evolutionary conditions, ensured the survival of their offspring [Women marry up, By Edward Dutton, In T. Shackleford, & V. Shackleford-Weeks,Encyclopaedia of Evolutionary Psychological Science, Springer, 2018]. The inevitable result, argued Lynn: less intelligent Chinese men would fail to breed, as intelligence robustly predicts wealth and status and is about 80% genetic. In addition, the ability to pay the fines for breaking the One-Child law would allow the wealthy, and thus more intelligent, to have more than one child. As such, concluded Lynn China must have “eugenic fertility” and it is to China that the “torch of civilization” will pass. [Richard Lynn: “Eugenics and Dysgenics: A Promise Denied”, YouTube, at 42 minutes]

Unfortunately, this is not what research by a young Chinese psychologist has found. In a study published in 2016 in the leading journal Intelligence, Mingrui Wang presented some shocking—and counter-intuitive—findings. Even despite the one child policy, there is dysgenic fertility in China. [Evidence of Dysgenic Fertility in China, by Mingrui Wang et al, Intelligence, July-August 2016]

The Chinese researcher and his team explored the relationship between intelligence, education-level and fertility, using a large sample from the China Family Panel dataset, which is highly representative of the Chinese population. They found that among the cohort born between 1951 and 1970, the correlation between general intelligence and fertility was -0.1, very similar to that found in Western countries.

Between 1986 and the year 2000, the Chinese lost 0.31 IQ points per decade and between 1971 and the year 2000, the Chinese lost 0.75 IQ points.

The researchers also discovered that education level is negatively associated with fertility in China. And the negative correlation between fertility and both IQ and education level is stronger among females than males.

In other words, though the Chinese have an average IQ of 105 according to Richard Lynn, and despite their introduction of the One-Child policy, they are suffering precisely the same process as the West. The most intelligent females are not selecting for the most intelligent Chinese males or, indeed, any males. As in the West, they are dedicating themselves to their education and then their careers, meaning they are simply failing to pass on their genes at all.

In addition, the strong cultural tradition in China—especially in the low IQ countryside – of desiring sons rather than daughters, leading to selective abortion, is dual-edged. The more intelligent Chinese, living in the cities, are more likely to content themselves with having a daughter. And the more intelligent she is, the more likely she is to have no children, leading to the elimination of her (intelligent) parents’ genes. It is possible that this phenomenon could even be sufficiently strong to undermine any indirect benefits to IQ which may have been wrought by the one child policy.

Slightly less intelligent women are spending all of their twenties dedicated to their careers, only have children in their thirties and not having very many. The least intelligent Chinese women—too low in IQ and impulsive to use contraception—are, it would seem, having excess children even despite the fines and the risk of heavy-handed Communist Party officials (illegally) trying to compel them to have abortions []. Perhaps their husbands see the fines as a price worth paying if it ensures that they get a son.

In addition, the one child policy never even applied to China’s non-Han ethnic minorities. These groups are overwhelmingly rural-dwelling and they have lower IQ than the Han. The more Han a Chinese region is then the smarter it is [Differences in intelligence across the 31 regions of China and their economic and demographic correlates, By Richard Lynn & Helen Cheng, Intelligence, 2013]. For example, the average IQ of Tibetans in 92 [I Q and Mathematics Ability of Tibetans and Han Chinese, By Richard Lynn, Mankind Quarterly], meaning their IQ is almost 15 points lower than that of the Han, similar to that of Greece or Romania. [Intelligence: A Unifying Construct for the Social Sciences, By Richard Lynn and Tatu Vanhanen, Ulster Institute for Social Research, 2012]

This decline is made all the more perilous due to research, led by a Japanese psychologist called Kenya Kura, which has shown that Northeast Asians are genetically less intellectually creative than Europeans. [Why do Northeast Asians Win So Few Nobel Prizes?, By Kenya Kura et al., Comprehensive Psychology, 4: 2015] Northeast Asians, compared to Europeans, have higher gene frequencies of polymorphisms which make people collectivist, socially anxious, and fearful of anything novel. Kura and his team argue that this is adaptation to a particular ecology, where it is vital to stay in a tightly-bonded group.

However, they note that scientific innovators tend to combine very high IQ with an optimally low level of collectivism, low social anxiety and low fearfulness of the new. In other words, they have high “Openness-Intellec t”, as psychologists term this trait. This psychological profile means that they can think outside the box and don’t care about the offence to vested interests which their new idea will almost certainly result in.

This is why, maintains Kura, it is the West that generated the Industrial Revolution, rather than more intelligent Northeast Asians. The West is indeed the Goldilocks Zone for genius.

“The torch of civilization” may well pass to China, but it will continue to get dimmer and dimmer and very little new fuel will be added to it. The torch’s bearer will slide into an increasingly authoritarian dictatorship—as happens to relatively low IQ societies—and the light of civilization will go out, unless it can somehow be passed to a society that is still under eugenic fertility.

That happened to me. My own mother made excuses for my adulterous ex. It sounds pretty awful, but I came out of that suspecting that she had done something similar.

It’s a shame, because I always thought she was better than the skank-ho single mommies of so many of my childhood friends from back in the 80s.

The worst part as a guy was thinking of all the opportunities I passed up in order to be a faithful husband. The beautiful women – better-looking than my wife – that I turned down in order to be a “good man.”

In retrospect, I’m actually glad I acted honorably, but my respect for women as equals was totally shattered. And that’s a good thing. What foolishness ever possessed me to think of women in that way? The only thing I can think of that justifies it is that my father was a morally deranged man, and I had no good standard by which to measure men aside from Jesus Christ, who is divine after all.

There is really no excuse for a wanton woman, except for the desire that burns in her loins. Let’s just be honest about that and call it as it is. In that case a man who cheats is as blameless as the “unhappy” young wife, and let us treat them equally.

Then maybe there will be as much fear on the part of the woman as the man, and divorce will be less common as there is no advantage either way.
