Fred Reed is dumb enough to accept the false Ashkenazi claims of 115 IQ at face value:
Among IQists, it is doctrine that blacks have a mean IQ of 85, fifteen points below the Hagvaca average of 100, and this is held to account for the lack of success of blacks. Searching the literature reveals authorities asserting that Ashkenazi Jews have a mean IQ of 115, as far above ordinary or Hagvaca whites as whites are above blacks. Eureka, and all. Equal differences of input produce equal differences of outcome. N’est-ce pas?.
No, it’s is most definitely not so. Two points are sufficient to conclusively demolish this ridiculous and scientifically unfounded claim that everyone from Jordan Peterson to Fred Reed has mindlessly repeated without ever once thinking through its obvious implications.
First, if Ashkenazis have an average IQ of 115, then all other Israeli Jews, who are the majority of the Jewish population there, have an average IQ of 83.7. This is lower than the average IQs of Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan, as well as Nigeria, Uganda, and the Israeli-Arab population. To claim that “Jews are successful because they are super smart” is tantamount to saying that Israelis are retarded. This is not a difficult concept. Even a relative moron with a mere 115 IQ should be able to follow both the math and the logic involved.
Second, the source of the fictitious “115 mean IQ” claim is the 1957 study by Boris Levinson entitled “The Intelligence of Applicants for Admission to Jewish Day Schools” published in Jewish Social Studies,Vol. 19, No. 3/4 (Jul. – Oct., 1957), pp. 129-140. In the study, which reported a 114.88 mean IQ for the 2,083 very young students sampled, the author noted its intrinsic limitations.
“This study is limited to applicants for Day Schools adhering to the principles of the National Commission for Yeshiva Education. This sampling does not claim to represent the entire Jewish school population or even those children attending yeshiva Day Schools with a different educational emphasis.”
However, the author failed to mention that he did not take into account the test results of the other 3,399 students at the 16 schools, thereby raising the obvious possibility that there was an amount of cherry-picking involved. And it may be worth noting that a similar study found a 118 mean IQ for the white Christian students sampled. But is anyone dumb enough to run around insisting that whites are successful due to their 118 mean IQ?
One of the contributors to Mike Lindell’s symposium describes behavior that some of the recent arbitrants would recognize:
Joe Oltmann, the Tech executive who described hearing Dominion executive Eric Coomer say he had made sure Trump would never win in November, and who said publicly Coomer had extensive ties to Antifa, was at Lindell’s Tech symposium, and briefly told his story. He began by saying people should have no doubt, there is a massive hidden organization in this country that has taken everything over, and it works, in his words, “exactly like the Mafia.” He said when Coomer sued him, the Colorado Court system mysteriously dropped the case in Denver, the bluest district in the state, despite the fact nobody involved lives in Denver, and Denver has nothing to do with the case.
He said the original Judge noted the anti-SLAPP laws of the state would not allow Coomer’s lawyers to depose Altmann or conduct discovery before the initial hearing on the case, so they could not go fishing for details and force Oltmann to have to hire an expensive attorney before he had a chance to get the lawsuit dismissed. That judge quickly got replaced with a new Judge who had marched at Antifa rallies and contributed profusely to Democrats, and that judge, out of the blue in contravening the prior judge and the current case law, before the trial even started, sent notice to counsels out of the blue that she was open to ignoring the anti-SLAPP caselaw and allowing Coomer’s attorneys to go fishing with a deposition of Oltmann before the initial hearing. Oltmann’s attorney, in talking with the judge on a phone conference, argued Oltman should not have to reveal the name of the Antifa member who let him sit in on the phone call with Coomer, because that Antifa member would be killed, to which the judge replied, “I guess we are going to see.”
Everything you have believed about this country – about freedom, about the rule of law, about the Constitution and what it guaranteed you, about what opportunities you had to succeed and what fields you were allowed to operate freely in, even the privacy you were guaranteed in your own home – everything was a lie. They told you this lie, because if they did not, they would face the most heavily armed, and violence-capable population on earth in violent conflict, and you might just take those freedoms and rights by force. And now the lie is collapsing.
An arbitrator used exactly that excuse to deny one arbitrant the right to know who, personally, was responsible for deplatforming him, falsely claiming that to identify the employee responsible would put his life at risk. The level of corruption of some judges and arbitrators, and the extent to which a few of the latter directly ignore the laws that specifically address and control their powers even when explicitely reminded of them, would astonish you.
They will literally declare that black is white, that three months are seven days, and that “no power” means “implicit power to do whatever I want”. Spend five minutes reading some of these corrupt morons’ decisions will suffice to turn the average literate individual with an IQ over 100 into an advocate of violent revolution.
Apparently the US military reconsidered the disadvantages of dishonorably discharging all the Christians from the armed forces:
The Pentagon on Tuesday released guidelines for how service members could request a religious exemption in lieu of getting the coronavirus vaccine.
By mid-September, all active-duty forces in the military will be required to get shots in their arms to counter the coronavirus as cases continue to once again increase nationwide.
“There is a religious exemption possibility for any mandatory vaccine, and there’s a process that we go through to counsel the individual both from a medical and from a command perspective about using a religious exemption,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said Tuesday.
Kirby said military service members who wish to seek an exemption will be required to be counseled by a medical professional and a commander over the risks posed by not receiving the vaccine.
The vaccine dictate is still evil, but at least there is a way out for those who serve. It will be interesting to see how many servicemen suddenly find God in the next month.

A number of would-be supporters have asked us to add some less expensive options, so we are pleased to announce the first of them today. Because Castalia Library has its hands full focusing on the English literary market, we have created a sister company, Éditions Alpines, in partnership with the owners of an existing European publishing house, to provide high-quality leatherbound books to the French, Italian, and German markets.
The first-ever book published by Éditions Alpines will be the original German text of both Heidis Lehr- und Wanderjahre and Heidi kann brauchen, was es gelernt hat by Johanna Spyri. The price is $150 and the book will be produced by the new bindery. The quality will be identical to that of the Castalia Library.
We will announce a $50 support option next week.
And they don’t fairly compensate the creators either:
Controversy sparked this week after a report claimed that comic book writers and artists who helped create characters and stories used in Hollywood blockbuster superhero movies have received very little, if any, money. In an article published on Monday, which cited several comic book industry sources, the Guardian reported that “when a writer or artist’s work features prominently in a Marvel film, the company’s practice is to send the creator an invitation to the premiere and a cheque for $5,000” – despite some of the movies making over $2 billion.
Others, however, reportedly received nothing when their work was adapted to the big screen, while a small number of creators received “special character contracts,” which gave them some remuneration. Even then, at least one creator who had signed a special character contract with Marvel told the Guardian that the company had later refused to honor it, instead sending a token payment of $5,000.
Greed, combined with a complete lack of appreciation for talent, will be their downfall. This report indicates that creators are already making more annual money on Arktoons than they are from having their work featured prominently in a Marvel film.
As you’ve almost certainly noticed if you’re here, Google has decided to roll the dice and take its chances with the Legal Legion of Evil. As with YouTube, Blogger hasn’t entirely deplatformed the account, but instead elected to block access to the blog while publicly issuing false and defamatory statements about it.
This is not a surprise. This day has been a long time in coming, and we have been prepared for it on every front. You may wish to note that this post was made barely an hour after Google took action. Special thanks to the dev team, who were ready for instant action and whose rapid response time allowed such an easy and seamless transformation.
All the historical blog content is here dating back to 2003, but the comments are gone and we are not going to turn the comments on here yet. If you wish to comment on a post, we’ll be putting up SocialGalactic threads for each post here and you can discuss the posts there. Obviously, this doesn’t work for anyone who isn’t on SG, but then, all you have to do is subscribe to UATV and you’ll get a free SG subscription that will give you access there. The sidebars are presently outdated, but they’ve been backed up as well and will be updated soon.
This is, of course, yet another reminder – as if another one was necessary – of why acclimatizing to the The Cult of Free is a fundamental mistake and why building our own platforms is an absolute priority.
There is nothing to fear here. This is a battle we have long anticipated, some more eagerly than others. Sadly, the hound dog who was Alphabet’s former head of legal is gone, so we can’t assume complete incompetence, but that will only make the eventual victory all the more glorious.
Remember, conflict is the air we breathe. It is the water in which we swim.
UPDATE: some newly motivated people are asking how they can help. The two best ways, at present, are to subscribe to UATV or back the bindery campaign.
