The marriage gap and crazy psychologists

Think that the Brett Kavanaugh nomination is a men v. women issue? Not really.

Sailer reports:
Parenthetically, the putative war on women is really a war on marriage. One of Steve Sailer’s many great insights over the years has been noting how the much talked about gender gap is reliably dwarfed by the much larger marriage gap.

So it is with the Kavanaugh calumny. The following graphs show firstly the percentages of respondents, by sex and marital status, who support Kavanaugh’s nomination
The poll shows that a majority of married women support the nomination, as well as a majority of married men. The opposition comes from unmarried folks.

Married people are much more likely to have a mature understanding of the realities of male-female relations.

Christine Blasey Ford obviously suffers from a serious mental illness.

It is not so well known that she subscribes to a branch of psychology that believes that anxiety and neuroses stem from childhood trauma, that therapy can recover those memories if lost, and that it is therapeutic to relive those trauma memories.

If such memories cannot be found, then they must be invented in order to gain the therapeutic value.

None of this has any scientific backing, and yet it is widely believed among psychologists.

Many people assume that she was making a sacrifice by coming forward. On the contrary, to her it is an opportunity to get a massive public therapy session where she relives her supposed traumas.

James Woods banned from Twitter

Zero Hedge reports:
Outspoken conservative actor James Woods was suspended from posting to Twitter over a two-month-old satirical meme which very clearly parodies a Democratic advertisement campaign. While the actor's tweets are still visible, he is unable to post new content.

The offending tweet from July 20, features three millennial-aged men with "nu-male smiles" and text that reads "We're making a Woman's Vote Worth more by staying home." Above it, Woods writes "Pretty scary that there is a distinct possibility this could be real. Not likely, but in this day and age of absolute liberal insanity, it is at least possible."
Really? Is that what these companies mean by election manipulation?

The tweet is funny. There is no reason to block it, except that leftist companies hate those with other views.

Monsters in their personal lives

Economist, multi-millionaire, and NY Times columnist Paul Krugman writes:
A trivial personal thought: I don't spend a lot of time with wealthy and/or powerful people, but it does happen occasionally given my line of work. And from now on I'll always wonder how many of the well-spoken men around the table are monsters in their personal lives
Not sure what he means here, but if he is piling MeToo victims, then he should worry about his fellow Jews being monsters in their personal lives.

PBS TV show is gay Jewish propaganda

For years, people who said that Ernie and Bert of Sesame Street fame were a “gay couple” or suspected them of homosexuality were mocked for being ‘religious nutjobs’ and with other pejorative language. However, Mark Saltzman, a Jewish sodomite who wrote many of the scripts for the two characters, admitted in a recent interview that he wrote them and many other characters on the show based on his own life as an active homosexual in a relationship with another man
This propaganda is everywhere. It is not even news anymore. If you donate to PBS TV, you should realize that you are supporting a Jewish effort to undermine Christianity.

Update: Sesame Street denies that these characters are gay, and says that they are just puppets with no sex organs.

More Jewish lying to slander Christians

A Jewish feminist NY Times columnist writes:
Obviously, I believe Christine Blasey Ford, the psychology professor who says that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school while his friend Mark Judge watched and, at moments, egged him on. I believe her when she says that Kavanaugh, who she says was drunk, held her down, covered her mouth when she tried to scream, and ground against her while attempting to pull her clothes off. I believe her when she says this incident haunted her all her life.

There’s rarely hard evidence in a case like this, but Blasey — the surname she prefers to use publicly — has done everything possible to substantiate her claim.
No, just the opposite. She never complained to the police, the school, the parents, or anyone else. There is no proof that she told anyone, until she hatched what was supposed to be an anonymous plot to derail the nomination a few weeks ago.

Her supposed memory of the incident only was reveal to her during a recovered memory session with her shrink in 2012. She cannot even tell us what year the original event took place. It is hard to imagine a more frivolous accusation.

The NY Times role in this is particularly disgusting. The MeToo movement has been mostly about exposing Jewish perverts. When a Jewish feminist says she believes this, what is it based on?

Goldberg goes on to explain how eager she is to paint all conservative Christian men as perverts and rapists, and how it is good to publish baseless accusations in order to achieve that end. Jewish Senator Diane Feinstein has been leading the charge.

Censored explanation of male intelligence

Math professor Theodore P. Hill writes:
In the highly controversial area of human intelligence, the ‘Greater Male Variability Hypothesis’ (GMVH) asserts that there are more idiots and more geniuses among men than among women. Darwin’s research on evolution in the nineteenth century found that, although there are many exceptions for specific traits and species, there is generally more variability in males than in females of the same species throughout the animal kingdom.

Evidence for this hypothesis is fairly robust and has been reported in species ranging from adders and sockeye salmon to wasps and orangutans, as well as humans. Multiple studies have found that boys and men are over-represented at both the high and low ends of the distributions in categories ranging from birth weight and brain structures and 60-meter dash times to reading and mathematics test scores. There are significantly more men than women, for example, among Nobel laureates, music composers, and chess champions—and also among homeless people, suicide victims, and federal prison inmates.
This got him into trouble:
Theodore Hill, a retired professor of mathematics at Georgia Tech, claims that activists successfully pressured the New York Journal of Mathematics to delete an article he had written for the academic journal because it considered a politically incorrect subject: the achievement gap between men and women at very high levels of human intelligence.
This is a subject that women appear to be incapable of understanding. Or maybe they understand it, and are desperate to censor research that they cannot refute. Either way, you can forget about hearing the truth in today's colleges.

Update: This issue has drawn commentary from Terry Tao, Tim Gowers, and Lubos Motl.

It is funny to see these prominent mathematicians make excuses for leftist egalitarian groupthink. Gowers actually says that it is a myth that being good at math is a question of raw brainpower. He presumes that there are no many female mathematicians because of discrimination, lack of role models, and similar reasons. He doubts that women are really so picky as to only want to mate with the top 30% or so of men. So he rationalizes rejecting the paper. He later retracted some of his criticisms of the paper.

It is instructive to see Gowers' thought process in action. He is a brilliant mathematician and he struggles with some fairly simple ideas that are commonly observed about male-female sex differences. It is impossible that the ideas are difficult for him. It can only be that many years of leftist brainwashing have made it difficult for him to think clearly on the subject.

Arabic to replace French in France

RT reports:
France’s minister of national education has expressed support for adding Arabic language to the school curriculum for French children, enraging the country’s right-wing that has warned of dire consequences if the plan goes ahead.

France should draw up a “qualitative strategy” for teaching Arabic language in schools, Jean-Michel Blanquer said during an interview on French television. He insisted that Arabic, along with Chinese and Russian, is one of the “great languages of civilization” and should be learned “not only by people of Maghrebi origin or Arabic-speaking countries.”

Blanquer’s comments were made in response to a report authored by the Montaigne Institute, a Paris-based think tank, which found that middle and high school students learning Arabic have increasingly turned to religious schools that teach Salafism – a radical branch of Islamic that advocates Sharia law. The report called on the French government to incorporate Arabic into the public school curriculum in order to counter the political and religious indoctrination taught at these Salafi schools.
Google insists on qualifying anything from RT as Russian propaganda.

If the Russians are the only ones publicizing this news, then I am all in favor of it. The Democrats and the mainstream news media call this election interference.

France is on a path where it will soon cease to be French. Teaching Arabic is just enabling the eventual Moslem takeover.

Tolerating the intolerant

Nassim Nicholas Taleb argues "The West is currently in the process of committing suicide." [Skin in the Game, chap. 2, p. 86]

This comment follows an explanation of why Islam cannot coexist with other religions. If a society tolerates Islam, then eventually Islam will take over. Islam takes new members by marriage, conquest, and taxation, and it never lets any go.

Other religions are not like that, he explains, and thus can stably co-exist with other religions.

He suggests that society must be intolerant of certain intolerances, or else the most intolerant factions win.

The Silicon Valley monopolists argue that Alex Jones must be banned, because he is the truly intolerant one, and that we should import as many Moslems as possible.

This is crazy. Alex Jones is just a guy with an opinion. Sometimes he recites conspiracy theories.

Moslems believe in killing or enslaving infidels. Their kids will have a religious duty to kill your kids. Their grandkids will have a religious duty to kill your grandkids. And so on. There is no way to avoid it, except to keep Moslems out of your country.

(Before someone tells me that most Moslems are not murderers, I know that. Some Moslems do not believe in killing infidels. In those cases, their kids and grandkids are the bigger threats.)

From Justin Trudeau of Canada:
“The world is moving towards more diversity, not less diversity. It’s a form of entropy where people will come with different perspectives, the advancement of communication, raising standards of living around the world…[it] means that our communities, our boardrooms, are going to be more and more diverse,” Trudeau said at a forum in Canada’s capitol. …

National Post columnist Andrew Coyne quipped, “Entropy is our strength,” mocking Trudeau’s mantra of “diversity is our strength.”
Does he really think that entropy is a good thing?

If you want diversity in your food, you do not add poison. Because once you add poison, it is all poisonous.

French white genocide propaganda

Anti-white propaganda:
How do we make babies?”

This sex education book which, according to the publisher’s website, is designed for children of 5 years and up, seems to think the magic recipe is: find a white woman and a brown man.
It is not just French propaganda. Just watch Netflix. It is full of the same stuff. And it occurs without comment, in an attempt to normalize it.

Norma Rae portrays whites as trash

I recommend this video about the 1979 movie Norma Rae, if you want to understand what Hollywood Jews think of white people. The movie was made by Jews, and won Oscars. Throughout the movie, it mocks white Christians as being inferior humans like blacks. Jews are morally, culturally, and intellectually superior.

You would think that reviewers would at least point out that the main messages of the movie are Jewish supremacy, and Jewish-created animosity among Christians. No, the reviewers praised the movie as telling a true story.

The true part is something about a woman urging some workers to vote to unionize. Maybe the real true story is how Jews think that they are so superior, and how they are doing something noble by putting down white Christians as white trash, and stirring up conflict between whites and blacks. Apparently it is a survival strategy for Jews to undermine white society and support Jewish cohesiveness.

Perhaps you are thinking that if Christians ran Hollywood, then they would make some movies with negative portrayals of Jews. After all, a couple of Shakespeare's plays had negative stereotypes of Jews 400 years ago.

That may be true. But as it is, I get the impression that most of the criticisms of Jews comes from non-Christians.

Meanwhile, the new movie Dragged Across Concrete has been attacked as Mel Gibson’s New Police Brutality Movie Is a Vile, Racist Right-Wing Fantasy. It has gotten some good reviews. I am not sure the cops are really portrayed as good guys. I have not seen it.

The movie was written, directed, and financed by Jews, so it could be a sneaky attempt to make whites look bad.

Babies cannot lie

Neuroscience news:
A new study reports there are cognitive benefits for children who learn to lie early in life. Researchers say children who learn to lie early have more self control, better executive function and improved theory of mind. ...

Children have been found to be capable of fibbing before they are seven years old, and some as early as two. He caught his own son lying for the first time at 14 months. He had taught him some American sign language, and their son gestured for more milk although he wasn’t hungry. “We ran over to the fridge to get milk and he went, ‘Ha ha ha!’ He started to laugh.”
This is a good example of psychologists doing too much mindreading. It is very unlikely that the 14-month old baby was trying to deceive his dad. Babies just don't have thought processes that complex. Maybe the baby can learn that a certain hand symbol has some relation to milk, but that's about all.

Three-year-olds can lie. Probably all kids learn to lie by age four or so.

Human diversity is as large as it ever was

SciAm reports:
At the dawning of Homo sapiens, our ancestors were born into a world we would find utterly surreal. It's not so much that the climate and sea levels or the plants and the animals were different, although of course they were — it's that there were other kinds of humans alive at the same time. For most of H. sapiens' existence, in fact, multiple human species walked the earth. In Africa, where our species got its start, large-brained Homo heidelbergensis and small-brained Homo naledi also roamed. In Asia, there was Homo erectus, a mysterious group dubbed the Denisovans and, later, Homo floresiensis — a hobbitlike creature, tiny but for its large feet. The stocky, heavy-browed Neandertals, for their part, ruled Europe and western Asia. And there were probably even more forms, as yet undiscovered.
How was that any different from today?

All humans today are considered the same species, but it is not known that the above groups were really distinct species either. In fact, those that have been DNA sequenced are known to have interbred. And the hobbit was not really later, as it was dated incorrectly.

The difference between Europeans and Africans is about the same today as it was 100k years ago.

If humans were aware of the rival human sub-species back then, would they have been concerned that alien invaders would wipe them out? The answer is likely to be yes. Basic evolutionary theory teaches that the sub-species will fight to the death, leaving one surviving group. Someday Europe may have another fight to the death with African invaders.

New Yorker writer hates Christians

I listened to Sam Harris Waking Up #131 podcast, with New Yorker writer Russian homosexual Jew queer Gessen. Those descriptors are from her.

She was anti-Russia, anti-Trump, and anti-Christian.

The curious thing was that she was much more tolerant of Islam than Christianity. She was very much in favor of importing Moslems into the USA, and hated evangelical Christians more than any other group.

Harris repeatedly asked for clarifications, and pointed out that Moslem countries treat homosexuals and Jews very poorly, and even kill homosexuals, while Christians treat them very well.

She could not give any example of any harm to the groups she identifies with (homosexuals, Jews, queers, feminists), but she nevertheless made it clear that she hates Christians so much that Moslems are to be preferred to Christians.

Of course she obviously would much rather live in a Christian country than a Moslem country or even a Jewish country.

She is just someone with an opinion, but the New Yorker is not known for permitting a diversity of opinion. If she is expressing these opinions in the New Yorker, then those opinions are probably common to most New York liberal Jews.

It is curious that Jews hate evangelical Christians so much, because evangelical Christians tend to be very pro-Israel and very friendly towards Jews.

Update: The New Yorker just disinvited Steve Bannon, out of some sort of unexplained animosity against whites by themselves and Hollywood allies.

Central values of the US Constitution

UCLA law prof Eugene Volokh discusses the central values of the US Constitution:
We can see that from the Preamble, which reads,

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

That suggests that the Constitution has many purposes: justice, domestic peace, defense against foreign enemies, general welfare, and liberty alike. To be sure, some of them may be seen as aspects of "liberty" in a large sense, such as liberty from foreign oppressors, or even from domestic criminals. But they are not limited to liberty, or even focused primarily on liberty.
It is funny how he can paraphrase the Preamble, and miss the most important word: Posterity.
The term "We the People" did not refer to American Indians, African slaves, Mexicans, eskimos, or conquistadors. The term "Posterity" did not include future immigrants or foreigners.

Some argue that America is an idea, but what is that idea? Volokh argues that it is not democracy or liberty.
