From Google: From Bing: From DuckDuckGo: The good news is that Google's Boxed Warning from the Anti-Criticism League probably doesn't much matter because if you type in "unz review" (instead of "what is the unz review") you'll get the, you know, Unz Review as the first choice and the ADL's warning about the Unz Review...

From Vox: Getting worked up over Charles Murray being allowed on a podcast seems a little bizarre. (Here's the podcast.) Under the faux indignation and clickbait headline, however, this is about as good an attempt as any to shore up the Conventional Wisdom that the racial differences in average intel
One trend we've been tracking at iSteve recently is Tiger Children taking over the social justice jihadi racket. You might think that just because you are poor and black that you'd get a leg up in the struggle for, say, a leftist NGO job, but ... look out! The hardest-charging immigrants are coming from 10,000... Read More
I don't know for sure that Palo Alto, CA, the home of the venture capital industry and next door to Stanford U., is really the highest IQ town in America. The highest test score public schools in America are in Lexington, MA, a suburb preferred by Boston area college professors. And I imagine tiny, rich... Read More
The NYT and FiveThirtyEight forecasts have split, with NYT thinking a Trump victory is highly likely, but 538 has gone back to giving Hillary a small lead in the chances of winning. But in case the NYT model turns out to be right ... From iSteve back in February: Harry Baldwin has put together a... Read More
Here’s my presentation at the early 2013 VDARE.com symposium, transcribed and then translated from spoken Sailerese into actual written English. Hi, I’m Steve Sailer, and it’s a real pleasure to address our symposium. I’m going to talk about some overlooked aspects of the 2012 election. As we get to the data, we’re going to focus... Read More
If you go to Google and type in American inventors you get back from Google pictures of the top American inventors of all time. The #1 American inventor of all time is Lewis Howard Latimer, who, I just learned, worked with both Edison and Bell. Thomas Edison is in 6th place and a well-tanned Alexander... Read More
Hillary Clinton and her affiliated media, such as The Economist (whose board includes Hillary's great friend Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild), have gone to war against Pepe the Frog. To be fair, the frog started it. Still, why is the Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party doing this? Is it because during Hillary's bizarre "alt-right"... Read More
From Talking Points Memo: It's striking how blatant double-standards are.
From PBS: Why the ‘alt-right’ is coming out of online chat rooms to support Trump August 25, 2016 at 6:30 PM EDT Donald Trump is appealing to voters who reject mainstream conservative ideals. These members of the so-called "alt-right" have typically taken their frustrations to the internet, rather than to the polls. John Yang interviews... Read More
Back in February, some readers of my Taki's Magazine column "Alexander Hamilton, Honorary Nonwhite" were baffled by why I was devoting so much attention to a Broadway musical about a rapping version of the apostle of Wall Street and limits on democracy. But time is validating my concern. From The Atlantic, a deeply self-serious article... Read More

The first 2016 general election poll of September is also the first poll to show Trump beating Hillary. From May through July, Hillary was up by anywhere from 12 to 24 points over Trump. He's now up by five points, continuing a trend in Trump's direction in August: Poll Date Sample MoE Clinton (D) Trump... Read More

Zeynep Tufekci A BRUTAL attack takes place on live television; the on-air reporter and cameraman are fatally shot while at work on an early morning story. The resulting footage — essentially a...

Do you ever get the feeling that journalists are starting to feel so constrained by the ruling ideology that they are self-sabotaging their articles, turning them into deadpan send-ups by choosing the dumbest examples in support of the conventional wisdom? For example, from the New York Times: So, which examples of Hollywood's unfairness to women... Read More
From the Wall Street Journal, an article that doesn't have too much new news, but gives me an excuse to offer some perspective on the Bush Dynasty's self-image of their role in New World history: How Jeb Bush Spent His Years on Wall Street Former governor’s time at Lehman and Barclays sets him apart from...

Matthew Weiner really, truly, deeply wants you to know that his cable show Mad Men was motivated by all the anti-Semitism he endured in Los Angeles in the 1970s and 1980s. From the Washington Post: Q&A: ‘Mad Men’ creator Matthew Weiner talks ‘other-ness’ and Jewish identity on eve of finale By Lisa Lednicer May 14... Read More
From the NYT Magazine: The Great Democratic Crack-Up of 2016 They may have a strong presidential candidate, but at every other level, the party’s politicians and activists are fighting to survive — and fighting with one another. By ROBERT DRAPER MAY 12, 2015 Maryland might seem a peculiar venue for a blood feud over the... Read More

Charles Murray writes in the Wall Street Journal: Why the SAT Isn’t a ‘Student Affluence Test’ A lot of the apparent income effect on standardized tests is owed to parental IQ—a fact that needs addressing. By CHARLES MURRAY March 24, 2015 7:11 p.m. ET ... The results are always the same: The richer the parents,... Read More
From Politico: Holder could look outside the mainstream of Anglo-Saxon jurisprudence to more informal community-based systems of legal reasoning, such as lynch law. They could call it Lynch law. For example, consider the old rationalization for punishing an innocent man: For Reason of State. Isn't it about time that the Obama Administration becomes entitled to... Read More
As I've been pointing out for awhile, the weak version of the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis -- that our vocabularies influence how hard or easy it is for us to recognize patterns of reality -- offers an insight into a lot of recent feminist brouhahas, especially in Silicon Valley. Worldlier cultures than ours recognized that great concentrations... Read More

After the 2012 election we heard a lot about how the Obama Coalition was a demographic juggernaut. To take a random example, from New York magazine on May 10, 2013: Of course, Richwine should be fired for having done his Harvard doctoral dissertation on a technical subject of massive importance to the long term future...

As I noted last August, it's not exactly a secret that the Israeli government recruits college students to write online comments. Nor is it a secret that there are other ways to make money promoting Israel. For example, the Israeli broadsheet Haaretz reported: Here for example is a Hasbara Fellowships homepage for American students wanting... Read More

Commenter Wilkey points out: America has a lot of ways of enforcing blasphemy taboos as well, such as being forced out of your job (e.g., James D. Watson, Jason Richwine, Brandon Eich, etc.), public humiliations, leaking confidential conversations, and so forth. A belief in magic is almost mandatory these days.

The Derb came up with the term "narrative collapse," but what's happening right now with the University of Virginia gang rape story is more like Narrative Apocalypse (to steal from commenter DNA Turtles). This is a long post, but you'll likely find it interesting ... My key insight into the Rolling Stone "gang rape" story... Read More

Deogolwulf has solved the mystery of why superstar Marxist academic Slavoj Žižek's famously opaque prose suddenly became so much more lucid when Žižek summarized psychologist Kevin MacDonald's controversial theories about Jewish influence. Žižek simply lifted, with only minimal rewording, sizable parts of
