Looks like Dems are panicking over the planned forensic audit of the Pennsylvania 2020 presidential election

See also: Definite sign of panic: Pennsylvania acting Secretary of State issues illegal orders to obstruct audit of 2020 election
This is quite a coincidence: Two days after Pennsylvania state senator Doug Mastriano announced that the committee he heads was preparing a forensic audit of the 2020 presidential election, the White House announced a trip to Pennsylvania by President Biden "to deliver remarks on actions to protect the sacred constitutional right to vote."

The stakes are just too high to allow the Senate in Pennsylvania to conduct a 2020 election audit; and all prior corrupt activity must be protected and maintained.  As a direct result the White House is announcing the people behind Joe Biden are immediately dispatching all federal resources to Philadelphia to begin the war against Pennsylvania voters.

The Obama regime officials cannot permit the State of Pennsylvania to challenge or expose the scale of election fraud executed in Philadelphia county. They will manipulate every narrative needed, instruct every corporate media ally, call out every labor union and community activist group, pre-position Antifa, trigger every BIG Tech mechanism, activate the DOJ, FBI, Department of Homeland Security and even the U.S. military if that is needed to quell any rebellion.

Senator Mastriano's committee, the Intergovernmental Operations Committee of the Pennsylvania state Senate, will predictably have trouble getting the information it is requesting (and has the right to demand) from the local authorities, especially after a visiting president meets with them or their significant influencers and lobbies them to resist and delay.  Mastriano's announcement stated:

 Today [July 7], as Chair of the Intergovernmental Operations Committee, I issued letters to several counties requesting information and materials needed to conduct a forensic investigation of the 2020 General Election and the 2021 Primary.

We have asked these counties to respond by July 31st with a plan to comply. The counties represent different geographical regions of Pennsylvania and differing political makeups. Some are Republican while others are Democrat, which means that this will be a balanced investigation.

The Intergovernmental Operations Committee is a standing committee of the Pennsylvania State Senate with oversight and investigatory responsibilities regarding activities relating to or conducted between two or more governments or levels of government, including the administration of elections across the Commonwealth. As set forth in Pennsylvania Senate Rule 14 (d), each standing committee is empowered with the authority to inspect and investigate the books, records, papers, documents, data, operation, and physical plant of any public agency in this Commonwealth, including county boards of elections.

The hysteria with which the left and its NeverTrump allies proclaim that questioning the election results is a Big Lie reveals their fear.  These same people had nothing to say about years of phony claims that Russian collusion placed Trump in the White House and treat Stacey Abrams as an icon after her claim to have been elected Georgia's governor despite losing by tens of thousands of votes.

Suddenly, sunshine no longer is a disinfectant.  Ignorance is bliss (if you are a cheater and your marks are the ignorant).

We're still impatiently waiting for the Arizona audit to be completed and results announced.  Georgia is another state that provided a margin of victory where suspicions abound and preliminary data suggest that fraud determined the outcome.  There is no constitutional or established legal remedy for a stolen presidential election, and the words "constitutional crisis" would not be an exaggeration of the trouble ahead if audits demonstrate that the presidential election was stolen.  That may be why so many disturbing moves like the national expansion of the Capitol Police are being put in place by Democrats.

Arizona state Senate hearing on audit underway reveals substantial evidence of electoral fraud in 2020 presidential vote

Former President Trump put out a statement yesterday in response to the Arizona State Senate Hearing on the audit underway, declaring, "There was no victory for Biden."
Mimi Nguyen Ly of the Epoch Times sums up the evidence so far of fraud:

Trump in his statement highlighted some points raised in the hearing that he found significant, including how Cyber Ninjas' Logan had told senators at the hearing that there was 74,243 mail-in ballots "where there is no clear record of them being sent." The data received was via a FOIA request from the county.

Logan said at the hearing, "Just to be clear … there should be more [mail-in ballots] sent out than there are that are received. … we have 74,000 [mail-in ballots] that came back from individuals where we don't have a clear indication that they were ever sent out to them."

Trump also pointed out that, according to Logan, auditors found 18,000 people who had voted but whose names were removed from the voter rolls "soon after the election."

Logan also revealed other discrepancies at the hearing, such as how 11,326 people did not appear to have been registered to vote as of Nov. 7, 2020—four days after election day—but their names appeared on the voter rolls on Dec. 4, 2020. There were also 3,981 people who voted after registering after Oct. 15, 2020—the Arizona voter registration deadline for the general election.

The former president said in his statement, "They [auditors] also revealed that the voting system was breached or hacked (by who?). Very big printer and ballot problems with different paper used, etc., and MUCH MORE."

Biden's margin of victory in Arizona was 10,457 votes, or 0.31% of the vote, so these questionable votes could easily have swung the result.

Andrew White of The National File reports:

Following the explosive hearing on the Arizona 2020 election audit, Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers has now called for "the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona," adding that a "new election must be conducted" due to the insecurity of the November election.

I fear that George Walsh, writing elsewhere on these pages today, is correct that actually rectifying this and other possible frauds by removing Biden from office should conclusive evidence be uncovered will be impossible on a practical level.  But that does not mean that there should or will be no consequences.  Demonstrating that the election was stolen will help stall Democrats' efforts to repeat their steal in 2022 and 2024 and will provoke voter reactions, even with the entirely predictable media cover-up efforts.

Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration. While this, according to the Senate, is preliminary, with results being announced at a later date, it seems that 74,243 Mail-In Ballots were counted with “no clear record of them being sent.” There were 18,000 voters who were scrubbed from the voter rolls AFTER the election. They also revealed that the voting system was breached or hacked (by who?). Very big printer and ballot problems with different paper used, etc., and MUCH MORE.

The irregularities revealed at the hearing today amount to hundreds of thousands of votes or, many times what is necessary for us to have won. Despite these massive numbers, this is the State that Fox News called early for a Biden victory. There was no victory here, or in any other of the Swing States either.

Maricopa County refuses to work together with the Senate and others who are merely looking for honesty, integrity, and transparency. Why do the commissioners not want to look into this corrupted election? What are they trying to hide? The highly respected State Senator Wendy Rogers said in a tweet the hearing today means we must decertify the election. In any event, the Senate patriots are moving forward with final results to be announced in the not-too-distant future, but based on today’s hearing, why even wait?

What I just heard described was a crime was committed on November 3rd and a cover-up has been happening ever since. They didn’t get the envelopes. They also have 74,000 ballots with no record that they were ever sent. This is an election that they claim was decided by 10,457 votes. Well, nearly 4,000 votes should be thrown out immediately because yesterday we learned that they voted even though they registered after October 15th which was against the court-ordered deadline. This is a fraud. We cannot allow it to continue… This election never should have been certified. It certainly shouldn’t have been called for Joe Biden on Election night.

The Apparatus of State Perversion, Cross Dressing Division, is organized, well-funded and pervasive. Their goal is to destroy the traditional nuclear family.

Ultimately, they will fail because:
1. Our gender-specific roles are determined by biology.
2. I do not know any guys who would want to take as long as a woman to get ready to go out.
3. The guys I know dress for comfort, not appearance. I can think of nothing more uncomfortable than wearing panties (knickers) that were designed for women and do not have ample room for male genitalia. How do cross dressers stand such torture? Have they been neutered?
4. Case closed.

The Bias Fallacy

It’s the [IQ gap leading to an] achievement gap, not systemic racism, that explains demographic disparities in education and employment.

The United States is being torn apart by an idea: that racism defines America. The [fentanyl overdose] death of George Floyd under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer in late May 2020 catapulted this claim into national prominence; riots and the desecration of national symbols followed. Now, activists and their media allies are marshaling a more sweeping set of facts to prove the dominance of white supremacy: the absence of a proportional representation of blacks in a range of organizations. That insufficient diversity results from racial bias, claim the activists, and every few days, the press serves up another exposé of this industry or that company’s too-white workforce to drive home the point.

In one short stretch during the summer of 2020, the Wall Street Journal ran stories headlined “Wall Street Knows It’s Too White” and “A Decade-Long Stall for Black Enrollment in M.B.A. Programs.” The Los Angeles Times asked: “Why are Black and Latino people still kept out of the tech industry?” In another article, the Times documented its own “painful reckoning over race.” The New York Times pumped out news features and op-eds alleging racism in food journalism, Hollywood, publishing, and sports management, among other professions. The Chronicle of Higher Education painstakingly reported on protests against alleged racial bias in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields, citing, for example, charges that black scientists are constantly “attacked by institutional and systemic racism.” All the articles [dishonestly] invoked employment ratios as proof of racism.

This journalistic theme has deep roots. For decades, reporters could all but guarantee themselves front-page placement by tallying shortfalls in the “diversity” of a firm or profession. Depending on the moment, sex counts might dominate the discrimination genre, as during the height of the #MeToo movement. Currently, however, we are back to pure race tallies; indeed, female leadership buys an institution no credit from the media, if that leadership is white.

These current diversity exposés are distinguished from their predecessors not just by their frequency. Virtually all mainstream institutions now agree [nonsensically] that a non-racially proportionate workforce proves racism, including their own. Organizations preemptively accuse themselves of discrimination without waiting for the inevitable indictment. The publisher of the Science family of journals denounced his own publications for “the discrimination, subjugation, and silencing of minority colleagues and voices.” The American Mathematical Society pledged to “address systemic inequities that exist in our mathematics community.” The dean of the Harvard Business School apologized that “we have not fought racism as effectively as we could have and have not served our Black community members better.”

The remedy proposed for this alleged systemic bias is an even greater emphasis on race as a job qualification. Increasing the role of skin color in employment decisions, however, will compromise the caliber of American institutions, if bias does not, in fact, explain workforce disparities. Moreover, the insistence on America’s racism undermines the legitimacy of our polity. It is worth examining in some detail, therefore, the charge of systemic bias and the counterevidence against it—especially since that counterevidence is excluded from public discourse.

Since the George Floyd riots, the following ratios have tumbled out of news pages to buttress the racism charge: 3.7 percent of Google’s employees and contractors are black, compared with about 13 percent black representation in the country at large; at Salesforce, 2.9 percent of employees are black; at Facebook, 3.8 percent; and at Microsoft, 4.5 percent. Black investors make up less than 1 percent of venture capitalists and less than 1 percent of the startup founders whom those venture capitalists underwrite. Some venture-capital firms—among them Kleiner Perkins, Sequoia, Benchmark, and Greylock—have no black partners at all.

Eight percent of MBA students are black, according to the main business school accreditor. Harvard Business School students are 5 percent black. In 2019, about 4.1 percent of chief executives were black, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Two percent of venture-capital partners in Los Angeles are black or Hispanic. Blacks and Hispanics are 3.7 percent of industry-certified financial planners. Seventy-seven percent of new board members at Fortune 100 companies are white. The newsroom at the Los Angeles Times is 61 percent white, though the white population in Los Angeles County is 26 percent white. Black journalists at the Los Angeles Times are 5.2 percent of staff, though the county is 8 percent black.

At WNYC, the nation’s largest public radio station, 15 of the 157 staff members responsible for content are black; only one of these 15 has direct reports. WNYC’s newsroom leadership is “overwhelmingly white,” according to the New York Times, and most reporters are white.

The press and activists slice and dice the numbers to get the black proportions as low as possible. At Google, though 3.7 percent of employees and contractors are black, only 2.6 percent of leadership and 2.4 percent of technical workers are black. Blacks make up 3.8 percent of Facebook’s employees, but only 3.1 percent of those are in leadership roles and 1.5 percent of those are in technical roles.

Backing up the demographic data in the flood of racism [propaganda] journalism are blacks’ personal testimonials of being discriminated against. The [inflammatory] rule in evaluating such testimonials is: “If a Black person tells you that they’re feeling something is racist, just believe them,” as a mental-health advocate told the Wall Street Journal in July. This is the mandate of the Believe Survivors movement as well: members of official victim groups are entitled to automatic credence. To test a claim of discrimination or sexual assault against the evidence makes official victims “unsafe” and violates their sanctity. Thus, the routine complaints of employees in nearly every workplace are converted into unfalsifiable proof of discrimination when articulated by a particular group of employees. If a white job applicant is not hired, it’s acceptable to assume that he was less qualified than other applicants. If a black job applicant is not hired, it’s because of discrimination. If a white employee is not promoted, it’s possible that another employee was more deserving. If a black employee is not promoted, it’s because his employer is resistant to blacks, as a recent legal complaint against Facebook alleges. Facebook is desperately trying to boost black and Hispanic representation in its workforce. Yet, if we are to believe the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint, Facebook makes it harder for blacks to get hired and promoted, thus undermining its own costly diversity efforts.

A black virtual-effects specialist in Los Angeles told the Los Angeles Times that peers and supervisors constantly undermined her. “I can’t really think of any space I’ve been in where it wasn’t assumed that someone was smarter than me,” she said. “People, speaking generally of non-Black people, always make the assumption that I don’t know how to code, that I don’t have any tech skills, that I got a job because of affirmative action; it’s just ridiculous.” White employees at a virtual-reality startup were promoted, while she got pushed out.

A black food writer recounted in the New York Times that the editor of Saveur magazine barely lifted his head while interviewing her for an entry-level position and didn’t read her résumé. Such peremptory behavior exemplifies the racial microaggressions that have kept the writer back, she claimed.

A “social-impact manager” at Pinterest, a social media site, received a minor rebuke during a performance review. She had successfully urged the company to adopt a racial-justice initiative. According to her supervisor, however, she should have presented Pinterest’s decision- makers with other options as well. The supervisor’s critique reflected the company’s bias against minority employees, she said.

A black reporter at the Los Angeles Times felt targeted by higher-ups. “Some days, I would cry and ask the editors: ‘Why am I being treated this way?’ ” she told the paper. Then she realized that she was experiencing not just personal but “institutional” racism.

An assistant professor of counselor education at the University of Virginia is denied tenure. The University of Virginia, like Big Tech, is desperate to hire and promote as many minorities as possible. Its education school is an outpost of woke correctness. Nevertheless, the tenure denial was the result of racism, especially since the tenure committee had no “people of color” on it. “Black people, including Black academics, have to be twice as good,” the professor’s wife told the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Feeling undermined by peers, passed over for inferior candidates, and unappreciated in job interviews once was considered the ordinary lot of office workers. These petty indignities become proof of racism, however, when suffered by blacks. It is taboo to suggest that noncompetitive qualifications ever play a role in any lack of black advancement.

Woe to a CEO who hires a high-placed white professional in the current climate. The Wall Street Journal began a recent story on the lack of diversity in finance with a profile of Wells Fargo’s new CEO, Charles Scharf. Scharf faces the unenviable task of resuscitating the banking giant from a 2016 consumer finance scandal. When Scharf began at Wells Fargo last year, he brought trusted colleagues with him from J.P. Morgan and the Bank of New York Mellon to fill crucial positions. The Journal plunged in the knife: All were “white men.”

The massacre was just beginning, however, and Scharf had abetted it. He had told Wells Fargo employees in June that he would tie executives’ bonuses to the diversity of their units and that he would double the number of black senior leaders by 2025. Such promises were part of the flood of antiracism pledges then pouring out of C-suites in response to the Floyd riots. The day after Scharf’s June 16 diversity e-mail, he announced Wells Fargo’s new head of wealth management, another lateral hire from J.P. Morgan. The Journal’s punch line was visible from a mile away: the hire was another white man. It was not necessary to ask if comparably qualified black bankers were available for the job; the Journal simply assumed that there were. Indeed, it is unlikely that Scharf himself evaluated the composition of the relevant hiring pool when he announced Wells Fargo’s latest diversity mandates; nor did he reconcile those new hiring mandates with the thousands of planned layoffs designed to offset the bank’s falling revenues.

Managers grovel before the charge that they have discriminated against black applicants and employees. The managing editor of the Los Angeles Times is “personally” doing a “lot of self-assessment,” she said. “It’s hard when you realize that you have failed in some ways. I’m sorry for that, and I am pledging to do better.” The Times’s deputy managing editor also “will do better.” And the executive editor, Norman Pearlstine, will do best of all. “I have been taking a hard look in the mirror,” Pearlstine told the staff in June. “I haven’t liked everything I have seen.” But in October, Pearlstine announced that he was leaving the paper, unable to withstand the racial quota brigade.

A few years ago, the founder of a Southern food heritage group received accolades from the New York Times for his work. Now he has to apologize for being white. “I want to embrace the critique,” he told the Times. “I’m still at it and I appreciate it.” Admittedly, his remedial options are limited. “Time has run out” for him, say his critics. The University of Mississippi announced in September 2020 that it will audit the Southern Food Alliance for “institutional racism and patriarchy.”

Given management’s prostration before every charge of bias, it is no surprise that diversity demands are increasing in stridency and scale. The Los Angeles Times must hire 18 black journalists, regardless of need or revenues, and issue a public apology for racism. Public radio station WNYC must hire two black reporters and two black producers in 100 days, to make amends for hiring a white woman as editor-in-chief. None of the white WNYC staffers who signed the diversity petition, including influential talk-show host Brian Lehrer, volunteered to resign in order to rectify the station’s racial imbalance.

Companies’ self-initiated diversity goals are no less sweeping. Half of Facebook’s workforce will come from “underrepresented communities” (i.e., black and Hispanic) by 2023, according to Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg—a remarkably ambitious pledge in light of Facebook’s current 3.8 percent black workforce.

A long series of similar pledges preceded these recent ones; none was fulfilled. Apparently, systemic racism overrode whatever good-faith intentions the promisers had at the time. What is never asked is the proportion of competitively qualified blacks in the hiring or promotion pool. It is taken as an a priori truth that they are available in the same measure as in the population at large.

But the expectation of proportional representation in every profession is groundless, thanks to the [IQ gap leading to an] academic skills gap. The unequal distribution of skills, not bias, explains the lack of racial proportionality in employment.

The median black eighth-grader does not possess even basic math skills. “Basic” skills, as defined by the National Assessment of Education Progress exam, means partial mastery of grade-related knowledge. Fifty-three percent of black eighth-graders scored “below basic” on math in 2017. Only 11 percent of black eighth-graders were proficient in math, and 2 percent were advanced. By contrast, 20 percent of white eighth-graders were below basic in 2017, 31 percent were proficient, and 13 percent were advanced. Only 12 percent of Asian eighth-graders were below basic, 32 percent were proficient, and 32 percent were advanced.

The picture was not much better in reading. Forty percent of black eighth-graders were below basic in reading in 2017, 17 percent were proficient readers, and 1 percent were advanced readers. Sixteen percent of white eighth-graders were below basic in reading, 39 percent of white eighth-graders were proficient readers, and 6 percent were advanced readers. Thirteen percent of Asian eighth-graders were below basic, 45 percent were proficient, and 12 percent were advanced readers.

math and reading proficiency

Black students never catch up to their white and Asian peers. There aren’t many white-collar professions where possessing partial mastery of basic reading and math will qualify one for employment. The SAT measures a more selective group of students than the NAEP, but even within that smaller pool of college-intending high school students, the gaps remain wide. On the math SAT, the average score of blacks in 2015 was 428 (on an 800-point scale); for whites, it was 534, and for Asians it was 598—a difference of nearly a standard deviation between blacks and whites, and well over a standard deviation between blacks and Asians. The tails of the distribution were even more imbalanced, according to the Brookings Institution. Blacks made up 2 percent of all test takers with a math SAT between 750 and 800. Sixty percent of those high scorers were Asian, and 33 percent were white. Blacks were 35 percent of all test takers with scores between 300 and 350. Whites were 21 percent of such low scorers, and Asians 6 percent.

In 2005, the Journal of Blacks in Education estimated that there were only 244 black students in the U.S. with a math SAT above 750. Brookings used an estimation procedure that maximized the number of high-scoring black students and came up with, at most, 1,000 blacks nationwide with scores of 750 and above. Whether the number is 250 or 1,000, it means that the STEM fields, medical research, and the ever-more mathematical world of finance cannot all have a 13 percent black participation rate, at least if meritocratic standards remain in place.

The SAT gap is replicated in graduate-level standardized tests. Between 2014 and 2017, the average score on the quantitative section of the Graduate Record Exams (GRE) was 150.05 out of 170. The Asian average was 154.1; the white average, 151; and the black average, 144. MIT’s entering engineering class in fall 2017 had an average GRE quantitative score of 167; students in the University of California, Berkeley, civil and environmental engineering program averaged 160, as did graduate students in USC’s engineering program. Even if the curve for blacks on the quantitative GRE is normally distributed in a bell curve, unlike for the math SATs, there will still be fewer blacks with higher-end scores than whites and Asians, given that the average black quantitative score is so much lower.

The organizers of the various STEM antiracism protests, such as #ShutDownSTEM, #ShutDownAcademia, and #BlackInTheIvory, argue that bias drives the lack of black representation in quantitative STEM fields. Brian Nord, a visiting astronomer at the University of Chicago and organizer of Strike for Black Lives, wrote in a manifesto: “To say that I, as a Black man in America—as one of the few Black physicists in nearly all of my scientific collaborations, as one of the few Black physicists of my generation—am stressed, is an understatement that speaks to your lack of understanding about what is happening right now.”

But there are simply not enough black STEM Ph.D.s to go around. In 2017, blacks made up 1.2 percent of all doctorates awarded in physics to U.S. citizens and permanent residents, according to the annual Survey of Earned Doctorates from the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics. Blacks earned 0.9 percent of all mathematics and statistics doctorates, 1 percent of all doctorates in computer science, 2 percent of all doctorates in chemistry, and 1.7 percent of all doctorates awarded in engineering disciplines. There were no black Ph.D. graduates in medical physics, atmospheric physics, chemical and physical oceanography, plasma/high-temperature physics, logic, number theory, robotics, or structural engineering. How academic STEM departments and Silicon Valley tech firms are going to fulfill their diversity pledges in light of that dearth of supply is a mystery. Yet in July 2020, MIT’s president blamed his own institution for not making headway on “racial equity and inclusion,” despite years of quota-izing effort. Virtually every other college leader has issued the same self-indictment.

percentage of doctorates

The Law School Admission Test is similarly skewed. The gap between white and black scores on the LSAT in 2013 was a 1.06 standard deviation. In 2004, only 29 blacks, representing 0.3 percent of all black LSAT takers, scored 170 or above on the LSAT, according to the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education. The average entrance score was 170 for the top-ranked law schools. There were 1,900 whites who scored at least a 170, representing 3.1 percent of all white test takers. Of black test takers, 1 percent—or 108 blacks nationwide—scored at least 165 in 2004, 165 being the average for the top ten law schools. Over 10 percent of white test takers—or 6,689 whites nationwide—scored at least 165. That gap has only grown, and it affects law school outcomes. Of black law school graduates, 22 percent never pass the bar exam after five tries, compared with 3 percent of white test takers, according to a study by the Law School Admissions Council. The skills measured by the LSAT and the bar exam—verbal reasoning, command of English, logical thinking—are required for a range of professions, whether corporate management and consulting, banking, or journalism. As for the law itself, if corporate law firms do not have a proportional number of black partners, it is not for lack of trying.

The mean black score on the business school admissions test (GMAT) in 2017 was 453, on an 800-point scale. The average for whites was 565, for Asians 586, and the overall average was 549. Only 15 percent of black test takers scored 600 or higher in 2017, compared with 45 percent of whites and Asians. Sixty-six percent of black GMAT takers scored less than 500. In 2018, students entering the top ten business schools, as ranked by The Economist, had average GMATs ranging from 690 to 732. The Journal of Blacks in Education estimated in 2006 that only 1 percent to 2 percent of black GMAT takers scored above 700, a proportion that has not likely changed. A former Harvard Business School professor told the Wall Street Journal in June that he had quit to protest the school’s systemic “antiblack practices.” An expectation of high-level quantitative skills was likely among those antiblack practices. Far from discriminating against blacks, the Harvard Business School [charitably] admits at least twice as many black applicants as their average GMAT scores would predict. Nevertheless, Dean Nitin Nohria claims that the school’s efforts at racial justice have been “painfully insufficient.” California has now mandated minority representation on the boards of corporations headquartered in the state, regardless of whether the quota hires possess business expertise; other states will follow suit.

Medical schools have instituted large racial preferences because blacks’ Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) scores would otherwise make a “critical mass” of black students unattainable. As with the math SAT curve, black MCAT scores cluster at the bottom-left tail of the distribution. With each higher tranche of scores, the black percentage drops to low single digits. Between 2013 and 2015, about 53 percent of black MCAT takers scored 23 or lower, corresponding to 496 and below on the new MCAT scale. A 23 (or 496) is the 34th percentile and would be disqualifying for whites and Asians. The Princeton Review recommends a score at least in the 80th percentile for medical school applicants.

Blacks in the next, still very low, tranche of MCAT scores and with low GPAs are admitted to medical school at nearly ten times the rate of similarly situated Asians and at seven times the rate of similarly situated whites. Over 56 percent of blacks with low MCATs and low GPAs are admitted to medical school, even though such scores predict failure on the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination Step 1. Less than 6 percent of Asians and 8 percent of whites are admitted under similar circumstances. Race plays so large a role in medical school admissions that a free online calculator of acceptance likelihood uses only three variables: GPA, MCAT score, and race.

A paper published in the Journal of the American Heart Association in March 2020 argued against racial preferences in medical school admissions. Years of research showed that students admitted under a preference regime disproportionately end their studies because of poor grades and have a harder time passing the medical licensing exam. Blacks are less likely to be admitted into a residency program than whites and Asians because of their academic records, even though graduate medical school education also doles out large racial preferences. The paper’s author, director of the electrophysiology fellowship program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, called for the colorblind evaluation of future doctors based on their “personal merits,” rather than on their racial identities.

The paper attracted only minor objections initially, according to MedPage Today. Once the #ShutDownSTEM movement hit over the summer, though, the paper and its author, Norman Wang, became the target of a blistering attack. A cardiologist in Virginia tweeted that the paper was emblematic of “systemic racism.” The paper sends the message to minority trainees that they owe their position to affirmative action and that their presence in a medical specialty reflects a decline in standards, the cardiologist complained. Actually, the data on medical school admissions show that the large majority of blacks attend the schools they do thanks to racial preferences, which continue throughout a trainee’s medical career. Virtually every medical school uses racial preferences, aka “holistic admissions.” If preferences were not so key in engineering “diversity,” academic gatekeepers would not so fiercely defend them as the only mechanism capable of producing diversity.

The director of diversity and inclusion at the Mayo Clinic tweeted that the paper should inspire rage and activism, reported MedPage Today. The president-elect of the American Heart Association, who chairs the Department of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University, wondered how the paper could have been published, given its “unbalanced, unscientific, and untrue statements.” The president-elect offered no examples of such untrue statements. The American Association of Medical Colleges also claimed that the paper lacked factual accuracy, without providing any examples.

Now both the paper and Wang himself have been retracted. The editor of the Journal of the American Heart Association condemned “discrimination and racism in all forms,” apologized for publishing the article, and then retracted it. The Journal would be “improving” its peer-review system, the editor said, to ensure that it avoids such “missteps” (i.e., publishing the facts) in the future. The American Association of Medical Colleges expressed its hope that other journals would revise their peer-review process as well, with the undoubted goal of ensuring that a challenge to racial preferences does not occur again.

Wang lost his position as a director at the University of Pittsburgh Heart and Vascular Institute. One of Wang’s colleagues at the medical school tweeted that she and other University of Pittsburgh faculty “denounce this individual’s racist beliefs and paper.” She was apparently unwilling to sully herself by naming the reprobate.

The myth of bias, whether in medicine, technology, or finance, can be maintained only by ignoring the skills gap. There simply are not enough competitively qualified black candidates to go around. Moreover, one-third of all black males have a felony conviction. Such convictions do not happen by chance; they signal involvement with the street culture of guns, drugs, and impulsivity, none of which is a selling point to employers. The prevalence of out-of-wedlock births in the black community (over 69 percent of all births) means that a high percentage of black females are burdened with solo child-rearing responsibilities. Such responsibilities make advancement more difficult, no matter the amount of employer paid leave.

As long as data on the skills and behavior gap remain available, it is possible to challenge the myth of bias, at least in theory. So those facts must themselves be canceled, as well as anyone who publicizes them. That is the ultimate motivation for the movement to end the use of standardized tests in admissions. All minimally selective institutions of higher education practice race-norming in the evaluation of test results already, holding blacks and Hispanics to a lower standard than whites and Asians. The tests do not impede racial preferences; colleges simply ignore the results for the sake of diversity.

The reason to eliminate standardized assessments is rather to put the College Board and the Educational Testing Service out of business entirely—and with them, any possibility of an objective measure of intellectual skills. The College Board was dealt a body blow this May when the University of California announced that it was ending the use of the SAT and the ACT in admissions for state residents. The SAT was a “racist test,” said the Vice Chair of the UC Regents, Cecilia Estolano. More than 1,000 colleges have already made the SAT optional or eliminated it entirely, but none has the financial clout of the University of California, the largest consumer of College Board products.

Graduate programs have been dropping the GREs because of their disparate impact. Half of all physics and astronomy departments, and nearly as many molecular biology and neuroscience programs, no longer require them. Cornell’s department of biomedical engineering, known for its diversity advocacy, and the University of Michigan’s biomedical sciences program have eliminated them. At the University of California, San Diego, the computer science and engineering, bioengineering, and nanoengineering programs are eliminating or waiving the GREs. UC San Diego’s graduate division dean recommended in July 2020 that the rest of the school’s graduate programs follow suit. Harvard and Caltech’s physics departments suspended the general GRE and the physics subject test in 2020, citing coronavirus concerns; they will likely not reinstate them.

The MCATs are in the crosshairs because of their disparate impact, even though they predict performance on the medical licensing exam. Medical school grades are also a racist practice. This spring, Columbia University medical students demanded that their professors stop grading them. Protest organizers warned that any medical student who refrained from signing the anti-grading petition would be publicized as someone content to “sit in their own privilege” at the “expense of their black and brown peers.”

At least one medical residency program is ignoring grades already. The University of Pennsylvania postgraduate surgery program disregards medical students’ grades, their scores on the medical licensing exam, and their membership or nonmembership in the medical school honors society. Instead, the surgery program focuses on “leadership, teamwork, altruism, and research activity” in admitting graduates to the surgery residency. Miraculously, those criteria favor blacks [Raise your hand if you want one of those Affirmative Action surgeons to operate on you.].

The rejection of objective standards of accomplishment is nihilistic. One could argue that the academic skills gap itself reflects structural racism in the distribution of school funding and private capital. (Such a claim ignores the trillions of public and private dollars that the U.S., with the best of intentions, has allocated to close the gap.) But to maintain that colorblind tests are meaningless in demonstrating cognitive mastery is to deny the very possibility of assessing accomplishment. Knowledge and skill exist, and they are measurable, if not always perfectly. Standardized tests are under attack only because blacks and Hispanics, on average, score poorly on them. If there were no group differences in outcome, no one would think about eliminating the very measures that were introduced to overcome group favoritism.

The next step in the unwinding of objective standards is to reject the notion of accomplishment itself. It has become career-ending to hold that some individuals or cultures achieve more than others. The ever-more sweeping deprecation of Western civilization refuses to acknowledge the West’s unparalleled contributions to human progress. And now the behavioral norms that lead to individual success are being relativized as well. The National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington declared this past summer that rationality, the two-parent family, punctuality, self-control, and being polite were “white” traits. The museum, part of the Smithsonian Institution, thus strengthened the underclass stigma against “acting white,” defined as trying hard in school and obeying one’s teacher. How the Smithsonian’s leaders thought that they were helping black children by teaching them to scorn “hard work” and “delayed gratification” goes unexplained.

The museum eventually removed its chart on “white culture” from the Internet after an outcry from conservative media. Yet this typology of whiteness has been a dreary feature of corporate diversity trainings and freshman orientations since the 1990s—and the removal of the chart was only a minor setback in the ongoing attack on bourgeois virtues. The KIPP charter school network long distinguished itself with its high expectations for inner-city children and its insistence on self-discipline and conformity to basic norms of respect. No longer. This summer, it retracted its motto “Work Hard. Be Nice” as part of its push to “dismantle systemic racism.”

America’s elites have apparently decided that if, after five decades of massive financial outlays and obsessive attention from policymakers, the academic skills gap has not closed, it is time to break up the objective yardsticks that measure it. The same will happen regarding crime data. At present, data that show the vastly disproportionate rate of black criminal offending are still available from a few local police departments. Expect to find such facts harder to obtain from government agencies until they are disappeared entirely.

The myth of bias is destroying our most fundamental institutions. Given the unequal distribution of skills, it is irrational to expect proportional representation in every profession. Yet elite whites would rather blame themselves for phantom racism than acknowledge the skills gap. American culture almost psychotically embraces the fiction that enough competitively qualified blacks are available to achieve universal racial proportionality, were white supremacy not America’s defining trait.

To be sure, thousands of blacks outperform whites and Asians, thanks to study and self-discipline. But the ubiquity of racial preferences casts doubt on their legitimate achievements and leaves them open to the suspicion that they advanced because of the color of their skin. The question, Do you owe your college seat or your job to affirmative action? is not racist, despite the virtual-effects specialist in Los Angeles quoted above. The question is almost unavoidable under the current regime.

The hatred unleashed by the myth of bias is tearing down urban life. Violence and public disorder are being excused in the name of racial justice. The only solution to the darkening prospects for a civilized existence is honesty about the [lower average IQ of blacks being the] cause of racial employment disparities and an unapologetic embrace of hard work and high expectations for all.

Watching China: Anatomy of a Suicide (American Deindustrialization)

Technological advance in China is rapid, broad in scope and, one might suppose (apparently) incorrectly, of interest to Americans. It is also easily discovered. Subscriptions are not all that expensive to Asia Times, NikkeiAsia, the South China Morning Post, and Aviation Week. The web is awash in tech sites covering everything from operating systems for smartphones to quantum computing. Reading of Chinese efforts, one gets a sense of motion, agility, vitality remarkable in a nation that in 1976, when Mao died, was the poorest nation on earth. America maintains a lead in many things, but seems to be almost asleep and resting on scientific virtuosity that is now lacking.

I hope the snippets below will give a sense of this. In many of the fields involved, such as quantum computing and fusion research, I am not remotely competent to judge their merit, but when they appear in internationally respected journals of physics, they are clearly taken seriously by those who are competent.

China to Build World’s First Modular Mini-Reactor
“Linglong One is a pressurized water reactor with a capacity of 125 MW – the first small commercial onshore modular reactor or SMR to be constructed in the world. After being launched, the SMR will be able to generate enough power to meet the energy demands of approximately 526,000 households annually.”
China maintains ‘artificial sun’ at 120 million Celsius for over 100 seconds, setting new world record

Another step in the quest for fusion power. Other countries, inclusing America, are working on this, but there was a time when the US would have been the clear leader. Times change.

 • BBC: China’s Chang-e Five Mission returns lunar samples

This was a sophisticated, automated endeavor involving a lunar orbiter, a lander that collected samples, a unit that took the samples back to the orbiter, and a return vehicle that parachuted into Mongolia. It was nontrivial engineering. And: It worked. Note how quickly this and the achievements mentioned in the following have come.

Chinese Mars Rover Begins Roaming the Red Planet
“China’s Mars rover drove from its landing platform and began exploring the surface on Saturday, state-run Xinhua news agency said, making the country only the second nation to land and operate a rover on the Red Planet.”

Very impressive, like beating Murphy’s Law in straight sets. First, it was an orbiter, circling Mars and doing orbiter things. Second, a lander. Third, a rover. Americans are ahead still in some respexts, but not by much. The riveting thing is how fast the Chinese are catching up.

Chinese Astronauts Enter Space Station
“Chinese astronauts floated into the country’s new Tiangong space station Thursday, becoming the first people to board China’s outpost in orbit after a successful launch from a military base in the Gobi Desert to start a three-month mission.”

When the International Space Station was being fomented, the Chinese wanted to take part. The US blocked them. So they built their own. The ISS is to be decommissioned in a few years, presumably leaving China as having the only functioning space station. It is notable that all of these off-earth efforts, to include the placing of a lander on the dark side of the moon, have worked.

China begins construction of its fifth rocket launch site
“BEIJING (Reuters) – A port city in eastern China has launched an ambitious plan to build the country’s fifth rocket launch site, under a longer-term goal to ramp up space infrastructure to meet the demands of an expected boom in commercial missions.”

Why can the Chinese do all of these things at once? Because they have money and many smart engineers. Why do they have money? Because they make stuff and sell it. America doesn’t have money because it spends it all on aircraft carriers, and doesn’t make stuff because it sent its factories to…China. Why doesn’t America have more and better engineers? Because it has a far smaller base of STEM-capable young and because it is dumbing down its schools and universities for the gratification of unproductive [melanin] minorities. Whose fault is all of this? Why…China’s. Who could doubt it?

Heather MacDonald: “Identity politics has engulfed the humanities and social sciences on American campuses; now it is taking over the hard sciences. The STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and math—are under attack for being insufficiently “diverse.” The pressure to increase the representation of females, blacks, and Hispanics comes from the federal government, university administrators, and scientific societies themselves. That pressure is changing how science is taught and how scientific qualifications are evaluated. The results will be disastrous for scientific innovation and for American competitiveness” Chinese achieve new milestone with 56 qubit computer
“A team of researchers affiliated with multiple institutions in China, working at the University of Science and Technology of China, has achieved another milestone in the development of a usable quantum computer.”
Not to worry. They can’t innovate.

The world’s first 100,000-ton deep-sea semi-submersible oil production and storage platform, China’s self-developed “Deep Sea No 1” energy station, has successfully completed installation of all equipment and is expected to start production at the end of June, China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) said on Saturday.

California unveils new woke math program, encouraging teachers to punish good students by holding them back
”Such an effort would involve faculty holding well-performing students back, even while pushing their less intellectual peers forward (as if they were all indeed equal in abilities). Potentially stranding a group of gifted individuals in a situation where they are held back by a single child who simply can’t get a problem right and needs endless special instruction is hardly something to be proud of….”
Stupidity beyond a certain point becomes entertaining.

China Launches Largest Self-Built Shield tunneling machine with adorable ‘panda’ outfit
The machine has a diameter of 12.79 meters and weighs 3,000 tons. It will be used in the construction of Jinxiu Tunnel, an essential component of the highspeed railway from Chengdu to Zigong in Southwest China’s Sichuan Province, which is known for being a home to pandas.”
The panda is hokey, and I don’t know how the beast compares with Western versions but China won’t be buying these things in the West.

• • •

[...] While the foregoing may sound like trivial technogabble, it is actually important. China buys some $350 billion in semiconductors annually. A lot of this goes for unsexy things like memory. If YMTC (Yangtze Memory Technology Company, in Wuhan) can produce flash memory in volume, foreign firms, to include American, are going to lose the Chinese market, oops. Then, the Chinese being Chinese, they will flood the world market with cheap, but good, memory. This is not Fred’s maundering. You can find plenty of industry execs on the web worrying about exactly this. Peril lies in forcing a large country full of high-end engineers to compete with you. The industry knows this. Washington seems not to. Yet. (read more)

"around 85% of new COVID Delta infections
in Israel are fully vaccinated

A Catastrophe Unveils Itself

On July 9, we learned that Pfizer planned to ask U.S. and European regulators to authorize an urgent booster dose of its COVID-19 vaccine, “based on evidence of greater risk of infection six months after inoculation and the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant.”

On the same day we also learned that the FDA and CDC weren’t very enthusiastic about the idea. In a joint statement both institutions announced that “Americans who have been fully vaccinated do not need a booster COVID-19 shot at this time.”

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) also said that “it was too early to determine whether more than the two shots that are currently required would be called for, saying it was confident for now that the established regimen was sufficient.”

It was revealed later that day that Pfizer’s emergency booster request was initiated following some catastrophic data from Israel.

Searching for a clue in Hebrew media sources, I came across a spectacular revelation dated 6 July that showed around 85% of new COVID Delta infections in Israel are fully vaccinated.

The above data suggests that while in the youngest age group (20-29) the vaccinated were about 2.3 over-represented amongst COVID infection cases. In some of the older age group (50-59 for instance), the vaccinated were overrepresented by even more than 15-fold. We should take into consideration that in Israel most senior citizens are fully vaccinated. And yet, since in Israel only 57% of the population is fully vaccinated, one would expect the balance between Delta cases in Israel to be shared by a rate that doesn’t exceed beyond a 6:4 ratio between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated.  Clearly this is not the case. On average, according to the data above the vaccinated are more likely to catch delta by a ratio of 5:1 on average.

Being slightly suspicious of the above data and its origin, I asked my Israeli partners to trace an official government document that could confirm the above numbers. Within a few minutes the Israeli Health Ministry announcement for July 6  surfaced in my email inbox and it validates the above finding.

The most significant information is produced by the following table.

The above study reveals that while in February 2020 (31/1-27/2) the unvaccinated dominated the COVID cases by a ratio of 20:1, six months later in June 2020 (6/6-3/7) it is actually the vaccinated who are prone to be infected by a ratio of 5:1. It is the vaccinated who happen to develop symptoms by a ratio of 5:1. It is the vaccinated who are more likely to be hospitalized and develop critical illness. If Israel was a ‘world experiment,’ as Benjamin Netanyahu presented it at one stage, this experiment is now turning into a disaster (at least for the vaccinated). In Israel, the vaccinated are becoming infected at a growing rate and as such are spreading the virus rather than stopping it. We also have a good reason to believe that the rest of the Western world will witness a similar pattern as it has followed the Israeli vaccine doctrine.

People like to fiddle with statistics and draw the conclusions that suit them. If only 11 out of the 1271 vaccinated cases develop critical illness, we are dealing with slightly less than 1% of the vaccinated developing critical illness. At the same time more than 2% of the unvaccinated develop critical illness. Yet, since Delta cases are 5 times more common amongst the vaccinated as time passes by, I may suggest that we are facing a possible emerging disaster as far as the Pfizer-vaccinated are concerned.

I guess that Pfizer scientists understand all of this very well and this is why they asked for an immediate booster approval. (read more)

(Fear of Black Males is Statistically Valid: 33% of Adult Male African Americans Have Felony Convictions)

The Growth, Scope, and Spatial Distribution of People With Felony Records in the United States, 1948–2010

The steep rise in U.S. criminal punishment in recent decades has spurred scholarship on the collateral consequences of imprisonment for individuals, families, and communities. Several excellent studies have estimated the number of people who have been incarcerated and the collateral consequences they face, but far less is known about the size and scope of the total U.S. population with felony convictions beyond prison walls, including those who serve their sentences on probation or in jail. This article develops state-level estimates based on demographic life tables and extends previous national estimates of the number of people with felony convictions to 2010. We estimate that 3 % of the total U.S. adult population and 15 % of the African American adult male population has ever been to prison; people with felony convictions account for 8 % of all adults and 33 % of the African American adult male population. We discuss the far-reaching consequences of the spatial concentration and immense growth of these groups since 1980. (read more)

This isn’t about facts. This is about a narrative.

I’m going to shock you – I agree with the president. This is the greatest threat to the survival of freedom since the Civil War [of Northern Aggression].

They are determined to use the power of the federal government,.

They’re determined to destroy the American military by bringing wokeness in.

They’re determined to weaken the police while strengthening criminals.

They’re determined to use the Justice Department. They’re determined to side with oligarchs in censoring Americans.

I believe this is the greatest domestic threat the United States has faced to freedom since the Civil War, and the threat is entirely in the Democratic Party.

And it is a mortal threat, and if they get their way, you will see them steal everything they need to steal.

They will do whatever they have to to try to dominate us and to dominate all of the American people and impose their radical values.

This is the greatest threat to the United States since the Civil War [to Prevent Southern Independence].

Watchdog: FBI mishandled Nassar-USA Gymnastics abuse case

WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI made “fundamental” errors in investigating sexual abuse allegations against former USA Gymnastics national team doctor Larry Nassar and did not treat the case with the “utmost seriousness,” the Justice Department’s inspector general said Wednesday. More athletes said they were molested before the the FBI swung into action.

The FBI acknowledged conduct that was “inexcusable and a discredit” to America’s premier law enforcement agency and all.

The long-awaited watchdog report raises troubling questions about how the department and the FBI handled the case and it highlights major missteps at the FBI between the time the allegations were first reported and Nassar’s arrest.

The inspector general’s investigation was spurred by allegations that the FBI failed to promptly address complaints made in 2015 against Nassar. USA Gymnastics had conducted its own internal investigation and then the organization’s then-president, Stephen Penny, reported the allegations to the FBI’s field office in Indianapolis. But it took months before the bureau opened a formal investigation.

At least 40 girls and women said they were molested over a 14-month period while the FBI was aware of other sexual abuse allegations involving Nassar. Officials at USA Gymnastics also contacted FBI officials in Los Angeles in May 2016 after eight months of inactivity from agents in Indianapolis.

The inspector general’s office found that “despite the extraordinarily serious nature” of the allegations against Nassar, FBI officials in Indianapolis did not respond with the “utmost seriousness and urgency that they deserved and required.”

When they did respond, the report said, FBI officials made “numerous and fundamental errors” and also violated bureau policies. Among the missteps was a failure to conduct any investigative activity until more than a month after a meeting with USA Gymnastics. Agents interviewed by phone one of three athletes, but never spoke with two other gymnasts despite being told they were available to meet.

The watchdog investigation also found that when the FBI’s Indianapolis field office’s handling of the matter came under scrutiny, officials there did not take any responsibility for the missteps and gave incomplete and inaccurate information to internal FBI inquiries.

The FBI rebuked its own employees who failed to act in the case and said it “should not have happened.”

“The actions and inactions of certain FBI employees described in the Report are inexcusable and a discredit to this organization,” the agency said in a statement.

“The FBI has taken affirmative steps to ensure and has confirmed that those responsible for the misconduct and breach of trust no longer work FBI matters,” the statement said. “We will take all necessary steps to ensure that the failures of the employees outlined in the Report do not happen again.”

The inspector general interviewed an FBI supervisory special agent last September who said the original allegations reported by Penny and USA Gymnastics were “very vague” and who questioned Penny’s credibility, describing him as “kind of a snake oil salesman kind of guy.”

That special agent also told investigators that the Indianapolis field office didn’t appear to have jurisdiction to investigate because the alleged crimes did not take place in Indiana. That agent and an FBI supervisor in the office said they told Penny to contact local law enforcement — a claim contradicted by Penny and the chairman of the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors.

The FBI said the supervisory special agent “violated multiple policies” and that the agency took immediate action when it learned that the agent did not properly document the sexual abuse complaints, had mishandled evidence and failed to report abuse.

The report also detailed that while the FBI was investigating the Nassar allegations, the head of the FBI’s field office in Indianapolis, W. Jay Abbott, was talking to Penny about getting a job with the Olympic Committee. He applied for the job but didn’t get it and later retired from the FBI, the report said.

Abbott [head of the FBI’s field office in Indianapolis] also lied to investigators from the inspector general’s office multiple times in an effort “to minimize errors” made by his office in handling the case, the report found.

Nassar was ultimately charged in 2016 with federal child pornography offenses and sexual abuse charges in Michigan.

He is now serving decades in prison after hundreds of girls and women said he sexually abused them under the guise of medical treatment when he worked for Michigan State and Indiana-based USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

The inspector general’s office said it reviewed thousands of documents and interviewed more than 60 witnesses, including several victims, their parents, prosecutors and current and former FBI employees.

The FBI’s handling of the case was strongly condemned by members of Congress, and some senators called for the inspector general, Michael Horowitz, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland to testify about the case.

“We are appalled by the FBI’s gross mishandling of the specific warnings its agents received about Larry Nassar’s horrific abuse years before he was finally arrested,” said Sens. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and Jerry Moran, R-Kan.

Nassar’s victims also strongly criticized the FBI for its poor handling of the investigation.

“The dozens of little girls abused after the FBI knew who Larry was and exactly what he was doing, could have and should have been saved,” tweeted Rachel Denhollander, one of the first women to publicly accuse Nassar of abuse.

John Manly, an attorney for over 150 of Nassar’s victims, said Abbott [head of the FBI’s field office in Indianapolis] should be prosecuted and insisted that anyone responsible for missteps in the investigation should be held accountable.

“The OIG report released shocks the conscience,” Manly said. “These women and girls not only deserved to have their case thoroughly investigated but deserved the respect and full attention of those investigating their case.”

USA Gymnastics is still reeling from the fallout of the Nassar scandal six years after Penny first approached authorities. The sport’s national governing body has undergone a massive overhaul in leadership — current president Li Li Leung is the fourth person to hold the position since the 2016 Olympics — and safety protocols in hopes of providing better protection for athletes.

USA Gymnastics also remains in court as it continues mediation with dozens of Nassar survivors, though Leung hopes settlement can be reached by the end of the year.

“At the end of the day, what has happened is something that we are learning from and we’re using the past to inform how we go forward,” Leung told reporters last month.

The report came on the same day the 2021 U.S. Olympic gymnastics team, a group that includes reigning world and Olympic champion and Nassar abuse survivor Simone Biles, flew to Tokyo for the Games. (read more)

Fulton County Update – New Evidence Reveals Significant Fraud, Even in the Audit, and Thousands of Double Counted Ballots

Garland Favorito, representing VoterGA, held a press conference this morning to outline new evidence as a result of a review of Fulton County, Georgia, ballots and tabulation results.   VoterGA Press Release pdf available HERE

One of the more distinct findings was the double scanning of ballots creating multiple votes in favor of Joe Biden from the same set of ballots.  The duplication of ballots creates the artificial impression of multiple votes from the same set of ballots.  Double counting ballots is transparent election fraud.

ATLANTA GA – Petitioners in a lawsuit organized by VoterGA to inspect Fulton County ballots have added stunning claims in their amended complaint, and provided new evidence from public records that show Fulton County’s hand count audit of the November 3rd 2020 election was riddled with massive errors and provable fraud.

Most new allegations and evidence are based on a VoterGA data team’s analysis of Fulton’s November 2020 mail-in ballot images, made public after petitioners won a court order on April 13th and VoterGA lobbying efforts led the Georgia General Assembly to make all images public under Open Records Requests beginning March 25th.

The team’s analysis revealed that 923 of 1539 mail-in ballot batch files contained votes incorrectly reported in Fulton’s official November 3rd 2020 results. These inaccuracies are due to discrepancies in votes for Donald Trump, Joe Biden and total votes cast compared to their reported audit totals for respective batches. Thus, the error reporting rate in Fulton’s hand count audit is a whopping 60%.

White House Occupant Delivers Angry Speech in Philadelphia Demanding All Resources Must Activate to Defend His Legitimacy

The speech Joe Biden delivered Tuesday in Philadelphia was not the rant of a righteous or confident man.  [READ IT HERE]  Instead the speech was a bitter, angry and divisive plea for help from those extreme leftists who supported his installation.

The need for control is a reaction to fear. That fear was what Biden displayed above all other attributes. A fear that more American people will begin to see the false construct of his installation.  A fear that those who perpetrated the fraud of his election will be exposed because the scale of their manipulation is far too great to continue hiding.

The fear that a small amount of actual investigation, with more audits looming, will reveal how a few key corrupt counties coordinated a massive election fraud.  Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, the location of Tuesday’s sanctimonious diatribe -delivered by a naked emperor- was the location of the largest fraud.  Other locations include: Clark County (NV), Fulton County (GA), Maricopa County (AZ), Wayne County (Mich) and Milwaukee County (Wisc).

The angry speech was full of projection, denial and extreme defensiveness.

Yup, the need for control is a reaction to fear, and it was very obvious Joe Biden feels the control is slipping away.  The White House has never been more defensive than they were Tuesday.  Biden demanded the DOJ, FBI, DHS and every agency of the executive branch must initiate a full defense of his regime.  It was not a good look… it reeked of FEAR.  [Full Speech Here]

Two Suspects in Haitian President’s Murder Were US Law Enforcement Informants, Report Says

Last week, Haitian police arrested two US citizens, Joseph Vincent and James Solages, on suspicion of murdering Haitian President Jovenel Moise in his own residence on Wednesday. Police had 26 other suspects, and 20 have been arrested.

The detained Americans, reportedly involved in Moise’s assassination, were said to be working for American agencies as informants, sources told CNN on Monday. One was said to work for the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

"Following the assassination of President Moise, the suspect reached out to his contacts at the DEA. A DEA official assigned to Haiti urged the suspect to surrender to local authorities and, along with a US State Department official, provided information to the Haitian government that assisted in the surrender and arrest of the suspect and one other individual," the DEA said, cited by CNN.

Responding to reports that some of the murderers were shouting “DEA” during the attack, the agency claimed that none acted on its behalf.

As a source close to the investigation told Reuters on Monday, the two arrested said to investigators that they were interpreters for a Colombian commando unit, which reportedly had an arrest warrant for Moise. James Solages was also said to be a "certified diplomatic agent" who worked for some time as a "chief commander of bodyguards" in the Canadian embassy in Haiti.

The assassination

On the night of 7 July, a group of assailants attacked the residence of Haitian president Jovenel Moise. The 53-year-old leader was killed, prompting the country to declare a state of emergency.

Police identified 28 foreign persons related to the assassination, with 20 arrested, including 18 Colombians and two Americans of Haitian origin, Joseph Vincent, 55, and James Solages, 35. On Sunday, the country’s police chief, Leon Charles, revealed that the suspected instigator of the murder is a 63-year-old doctor from Florida, who was also detained.

On Friday, the Haitian government made a request to the United Nations and the US for military units to be deployed in the country to "support the efforts of the national police aiming to reestablish security and public order in the whole territory."

Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby said earlier that the request is under consideration at the moment. Meanwhile, a group of Department of Homeland Security and FBI agents was commissioned to enter the country to inquire into the assassination. (read more)

Major Escalation – Biden Allies and DNC Instructing Cell Phone Carriers to Filter and Censor Text Message Content

All Your Communication Belong to Us

Buried in a Politico article about the White House and Biden Regime planning to aggressively confront anyone who attempts to counter their demands of vaccination, including direct confrontation toward any media outlet that would distribute any counter message conflicting the regime narrative, there is this little alarming notation (emphasis mine):

Politico […] …”Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages. The goal is to ensure that people who may have difficulty getting a vaccination because of issues like transportation see those barriers lessened or removed entirely.”.. (link)

Yes, you read that correctly.  Fact checking your SMS text messages through your carrier, your cell phone or internet provider.

This is a rather remarkable escalation in totalitarian censorship instruction.  Not only will Big Tech social media networks (Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter) censor, delete, and look into any content placed in their “private sector” domain, but the implication is now that AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, T-Mobile etc. etc. will deploy monitors and fact-checkers to control what you are allowed to say in text messages to your friends and family.

We have noted in past discussion that ISP providers have been enlisted to use their control nodules to steer and restrict internet travel; even placing landing warnings on websites that are arbitrarily deemed dangerous to approved government messaging.  However, taking the leap to control the content of all communication platforms is another level entirely.

Another aspect to this is how the Intelligence Branch is closely connected to the private-public partnership.  None of these control mechanisms would work if the corporate private sector was not willingly going along with the demands of intrusive government. (read more)

2021-07-13 j

Editor's Note: Last Saturday, I was made aware of @martyrmade and posted one his tweets Sunday morning. Too few of you have seen his amazing viral thread from last Friday. Glenn Greenwald commented on it, generously giving Mr. Cooper space to elaborate. It is reprinted below:

I think I’ve had discussions w/enough Boomer-tier Trump supporters who believe the 2020 election was fraudulent to extract a general theory about their perspective. It is also the perspective of most of the people at the Capitol on 1/6, and probably even Trump himself.

Most believe some or all of the theories involving midnight ballots, voting machines, etc, but what you find when you talk to them is that, while they’ll defend those positions w/info they got from Hannity or Breitbart or whatever, they’re not particularly attached to them.

Here are the facts — actual, confirmed facts — that shape their perspective: 1) The FBI/etc. spied on the 2016 Trump campaign using evidence manufactured by the Clinton campaign. We now know that all involved knew it was fake from Day 1 (see: Brennan’s July 2016 memo, etc.).

These are Tea Party people. The types who give their kids a pocket Constitution for their birthday and have Founding Fathers memes in their bios. The intel community spying on a presidential campaign using fake evidence (incl. forged documents) is a big deal to them.

Everyone involved lied about their involvement as long as they could. We only learned the DNC paid for the manufactured evidence because of a court order. Comey denied on TV knowing the DNC paid for it, when we have emails from a year earlier proving that he knew.

This was true with everyone, from CIA Dir Brennan & Adam Schiff — who were on TV saying they’d seen clear evidence of collusion w/Russia, while admitting under oath behind closed doors that they hadn’t — all the way down the line. In the end we learned that it was ALL fake.

At first, many Trump ppl were worried there must be some collusion, because every media & intel agency wouldn’t make it up out of nothing. When it was clear that they had made it up, people expected a reckoning, and shed many illusions about their gov’t when it didn’t happen.

We know as fact: a) The Steele dossier was the sole evidence used to justify spying on the Trump campaign, b) The FBI knew the Steele dossier was a DNC op, c) Steele’s source told the FBI the info was unserious, d) they did not inform the court of any of this and kept spying.

Trump supporters know the collusion case front and back. They went from worrying the collusion must be real, to suspecting it might be fake, to realizing it was a scam, then watched as every institution — agencies, the press, Congress, academia — gaslit them for another year.

Worse, collusion was used to scare people away from working in the administration. They knew their entire lives would be investigated. Many quit because they were being bankrupted by legal fees. The DoJ, press, & gov’t destroyed lives and actively subverted an elected admin.

This is where people whose political identity was largely defined by a naive belief in what they learned in Civics class began to see the outline of a Regime that crossed all institutional boundaries. Because it had stepped out of the shadows to unite against an interloper.

GOP propaganda still has many of them thinking in terms of partisan binaries, but A LOT of Trump supporters see that the Regime is not partisan. They all know that the same institutions would have taken opposite sides if it was a Tulsi Gabbard vs Jeb Bush election.

It’s hard to describe to people on the left (who are used to thinking of gov’t as a conspiracy… Watergate, COINTELPRO, WMD, etc) how shocking & disillusioning this was for people who encourage their sons to enlist in the Army, and hate ppl who don’t stand for the Anthem.

They could have managed the shock if it only involved the government. But the behavior of the corporate press is really what radicalized them. They hate journalists more than they hate any politician or gov’t official, because they feel most betrayed by them.

The idea that the press is driven by ratings/sensationalism became untenable. If that were true, they’d be all over the Epstein story. The corporate press is the propaganda arm of the Regime they now see in outline. Nothing anyone says will ever make them unsee that, period.

This is profoundly disorienting. Many of them don’t know for certain whether ballots were faked in November 2020, but they know for absolute certain that the press, the FBI, etc would lie to them if there was. They have every reason to believe that, and it’s probably true.

They watched the press behave like animals for four years. Tens of millions of people will always see Kavanaugh as a gang rapist, based on nothing, because of CNN. And CNN seems proud of that. They led a lynch mob against a high school kid. They cheered on a summer of riots.

They always claimed the media had liberal bias, fine, whatever. They still thought the press would admit truth if they were cornered. Now they don’t. It’s a different thing to watch them invent stories whole cloth in order to destroy regular lives and spark mass violence.

Time magazine told us that during the 2020 riots, there were weekly conference calls involving, among others, leaders of the protests, the local officials who refused to stop them, and media people who framed them for political effect. In Ukraine we call that a color revolution.

Throughout the summer, Democrat governors took advantage of COVID to change voting procedures. It wasn’t just the mail-ins (they lowered signature matching standards, etc.). After the collusion scam, the fake impeachment, Trump ppl expected shenanigans by now.

Re: “fake impeachment,” we now know that Trump’s request for Ukraine to cooperate w/the DOJ regarding Biden’s $ activities in Ukraine was in support of an active investigation being pursued by the FBI and Ukraine AG at the time, and so a completely legitimate request.

Then you get the Hunter laptop scandal. Big Tech ran a full-on censorship campaign against a major newspaper to protect a political candidate. Period. Everyone knows it, all of the Tech companies now admit it was a “mistake” — but, ya know, the election’s over, so who cares?

Goes w/o saying, but: If the NY Times had Don Jr’s laptop, full of pics of him smoking crack and engaging in group sex, lots of lurid family drama, emails describing direct corruption and backed up by the CEO of the company they were using, the NYT wouldn’t have been banned.

Think back: Stories about Trump being pissed on by Russian prostitutes and blackmailed by Putin were promoted as fact, and the only evidence was a document paid for by his opposition and disavowed by its source. The NY Post was banned for reporting on true information.

The reaction of Trump ppl to all this was not, “No fair!” That’s how they felt about Romney’s “binders of women” in 2012. This is different. Now they see, correctly, that every institution is captured by ppl who will use any means to exclude them from the political process.

And yet they showed up in record numbers to vote. He got 13m more votes than in 2016, 10m more than Clinton got! As election night dragged on, they allowed themselves some hope. But when the four critical swing states (and only those states) went dark at midnight, they knew.

Over the ensuing weeks, they got shuffled around by grifters and media scam artists selling them conspiracy theories. They latched onto one, then another increasingly absurd theory as they tried to put a concrete name on something very real.

Media & Tech did everything to make things worse. Everything about the election was strange — the changes to procedure, unprecedented mail-in voting, the delays, etc. — but rather than admit that and make everything transparent, they banned discussion of it (even in DMs!).

Everyone knows that, just as Don Jr’s laptop would’ve been the story of the century if everything about the election dispute was the same except the parties were reversed, suspicions about the outcome would’ve been Taken Very Seriously. See 2016 for proof.

Even the courts’ refusal of the case gets nowhere w/them, because of how the opposition embraced mass political violence. They’ll say, w/good reason: What judge will stick his neck out for Trump knowing he’ll be destroyed in the media as a violent mob burns down his house?

It’s a fact, according to Time magazine, that mass riots were planned in cities across the country if Trump won. Sure, they were “protests,” but they were planned by the same people as during the summer, and everyone knows what it would have meant. Judges have families, too.

Editor's Note:
A realistic interpretation of this study calls into question the "out of Africa" hypothesis for modern humans at any time after the Eemian Interglacial. A dispassionate student of human evolution could infer that the "ghost archaic" introgression noted below in Sub-Saharan Africans was contributed by a population of Homo erectus surviving into the last 60,000 to 30,000 years (though the interbreeding could have been occurring further into the past). The unique physical characteristics of modern Africans could certainly have come from Homo erectus. Modern West Africans found to have up, "to 19% of their genetic ancestry from an archaic population that diverged before the split of Neanderthals and modern humans," would account for their physical similarities with recent reconstructions of Homo erectus.

Further study is needed to determine how modern West Africans with the greatest percentage of that
"ghost archaic" introgression differ (physically, cognitively and socially, for example) from those with the least percentage of that introgression. Further comparisons of those with 19% "ghost archaic" (Homo erectus) introgression with Europeans and East Asians would also be instructive; though I fear such studies, if carried out, would be suppressed.
Further corroboration for these musings comes from the absence of Neanderthal genes in Sub-Saharan Africans and the absence of the "ghost archaic" genes in non-African populations.

While ancient hominin fossils are well known from the Rift Valley of East Africa, the birthplace of the genus, Homo, could well have been elsewhere. I would look wherever prosimians occur for signs of ancient hominin and human fossils.

Recovering signals of ghost archaic (Homo erectus] introgression in African populations


While introgression from Neanderthals and Denisovans has been documented in modern humans outside Africa, the contribution of archaic hominins to the genetic variation of present-day Africans remains poorly understood. We provide complementary lines of evidence for archaic introgression into four West African populations. Our analyses of site frequency spectra indicate that these populations derive 2 to 19% of their genetic ancestry from an archaic population that diverged before the split of Neanderthals and modern humans. Using a method that can identify segments of archaic ancestry without the need for reference archaic genomes, we built genome-wide maps of archaic ancestry in the Yoruba and the Mende populations. Analyses of these maps reveal segments of archaic ancestry at high frequency in these populations that represent potential targets of adaptive introgression. Our results reveal the substantial contribution of archaic ancestry in shaping the gene pool of present-day West African populations.


dmixture has been a dominant force in shaping patterns of genetic variation in human populations (1). Comparisons of genome sequences from archaic hominins to those from present-day humans have documented multiple interbreeding events, including gene flow from Neanderthals into the ancestors of all non-Africans (2), from Denisovans into Oceanians (3) and eastern non-Africans (4, 5), as well as from early modern humans into the Neanderthals (6). However, the sparse fossil record and the difficulty in obtaining ancient DNA have made it challenging to dissect the contribution of archaic hominins to genetic diversity within Africa. While several studies have revealed contributions from deep lineages to the ancestry of present-day Africans (7–12), the nature of these contributions remains poorly understood.


We leveraged whole-genome sequence data from present-day West African populations and archaic hominins to compute statistics that are sensitive to introgression in the history of these populations. Specifically, we tabulated the distribution of the frequencies of derived alleles (where a derived allele is determined relative to an inferred human ancestor) in the analyzed African populations at single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for which a randomly sampled allele from an archaic individual was observed to also be derived. Theory predicts that this conditional site frequency spectrum (CSFS) is expected to be uniformly distributed when alleles are neutrally evolving under a demographic model in which the ancestor of modern and archaic humans, assumed to be at mutation-drift equilibrium, split with no subsequent gene flow between the two groups (13, 14). This expectation is robust to assumptions about changes in population sizes in the history of modern human or archaic populations. Further, we show that this expectation holds even when there is population structure or gene flow in the history of the archaic population (see Materials and Methods).
Given that none of the current demographic models are able to fit the observed CSFS, we explored models where present-day West Africans trace part of their ancestry to (A) a population that split from their ancestors after the split between Neanderthals and modern humans, (B) a population that split from the ancestor of Neanderthals after the split between Neanderthals and modern humans, or (C) a population that diverged from the ancestors of modern humans and Neanderthals before the ancestors of Neanderthals and modern humans split from each other (fig. S2 and section S3). Each of these models of admixture (which we refer to as models A, B, and C, respectively) can yield a U-shaped CSFS. The increase in the counts of low derived allele frequency SNPs is largely due to the introduction of the derived allele from the introgressing population at sites that are fixed for the ancestral allele. The increase in the counts of the high-frequency SNPs is largely due to the introduction of the ancestral alleles at sites that are fixed for the derived allele.

A search for the parameters for models A and B that produce the best fit to the CSFS results in a trifurcation, i.e., models in which the introgressing population splits off from the modern human population at the same time as the modern human–Neanderthal. Models A and B fail to fit the observed CSFS even at their most likely parameter estimates (KS P = 3.3 × 10−15 and P = 5.6 × 10−6, respectively; section S3) because of insufficient genetic drift in the African population since the split from the introgressing population (section S4.2). In addition, we show in appendix B that the spectrum for model A is expected to be symmetric, which is not observed in the data (Fig. 1). Model C, on the other hand, is consistent with the data (KS P = 0.09), suggesting that part of the ancestry of present-day West Africans must derive from a population that diverged before the split time of Neanderthals and modern humans. In addition to the goodness-of-fit tests, we examined the likelihood of the best-fit parameters for each of the models and found that model C provides a significantly better fit than other models (model C having a higher composite log likelihood than the next best model Δℒℒ = ℒℒNextbestmodel − ℒℒC = −6806 when we condition on the Vindija Neanderthal genome and Δℒℒ = −6240 when we condition on the Denisovan genome; table S4 and Materials and Methods). Our analyses provide support for a contribution to the genetic ancestry of present-day West African populations from an archaic ghost population whose divergence from the ancestors of modern humans predates the split of Neanderthals and modern humans.

We applied approximate Bayesian computation (ABC) to the CSFS to refine the parameters of our most likely demographic model (model C) (section S5). Given the large number of parameters in this demographic model, we fixed parameters that had previously been estimated (15) and jointly estimated the split time of the introgressing archaic population from the ancestors of Neanderthals and modern humans, the time of introgression, the fraction of ancestry contributed by the introgressing population, and its effective population size. We determined the posterior mean for the split time to be 625,000 years before the present (B.P.) [95% highest posterior density interval (HPD): 360,000 to 975,000], the admixture time to be 43,000 years B.P. (95% HPD: 6000 to 124,000), and the admixture fraction to be 0.11 (95% HPD: 0.045 to 0.19). Analyses of three other West African populations (ESN, GWD, and MSL) yielded concordant estimates for these parameters (Fig. 2 and table S7). Combining our results across the West African populations, we estimate that the archaic population split from the ancestor of Neanderthals and modern humans 360 thousand years (ka) to 1.02 million years (Ma) B.P. and subsequently introgressed into the ancestors of present-day Africans 0 to 124 ka B.P. contributing 2 to 19% of their ancestry. We caution that the true underlying demographic model is likely to be more complex. To explore aspects of this complexity, we examined the possibility that the archaic population diverged at the same time as the split time of modern humans and Neanderthals and found that this model can also produce a U-shaped CSFS with a likelihood that is relatively high, although lower than that of our best-fit model (Δℒℒ = −2713 for the Neanderthal CSFS and Δℒℒ = −2597 for the Denisovan CSFS, KS P ≤ 2.9 × 10−6). Our estimates of a large effective population size in the introgressing lineage (posterior mean of 25,000; 95% HPD: 23,000 to 27,000) could indicate additional structure. We find that the Ne of the introgressing lineage in YRI and MSL is larger than that in the other African populations, possibly due to a differential contribution from a basal West African branch (20).

While we have chosen to represent the genetic contribution of the African ghost population as a single discrete interbreeding event, a more realistic model could include low levels of gene flow in a structured population over an extended period of time. Previously proposed models of ancestral structure in Africa do not fit the CSFS [KS P < 2 × 10−16 for the model described in (21) and KS P < 2 × 10−16 for the model proposed in (14); fig. S18], although we observe that the model of ancestral structure proposed by Yang et al. does produce a slight U-shape. We explored additional models of population structure in Africa (22) in which a lineage split from the ancestor of the modern humans with split times ranging from 100 to 550 ka B.P. and continued to exchange genes with the modern human population until the present with migration rates ranging from 2.5 × 10−5 to 2 × 10−2 migrants per generation. While these models of continuous gene flow produce a U-shaped CSFS for low migration rates and deep splits, they do not provide an adequate fit to the empirical CSFS over the range of parameters considered (KS P ≤ 2.3 × 10−5; section S6 and figs. S14 and S15). We used our ABC framework to explore a more detailed model of continuous migration in which we varied split time, migration rate, and effective population size of the introgressing lineage. Simulations under the best fitting model produce a CSFS that does not adequately fit the data (KS P = 1.83 × 10−6). A possible reason why the continuous migration models that we have explored do not fit the data is that these models can be considered as extensions of model A with multiple admixture events. We have shown that these models can only produce symmetric CSFS, unlike the CSFS that we observe in the data (appendix B). Thus, deep population structure within Africa alone cannot not explain the data (section S6).

Given the uncertainty in our estimates of the time of introgression, we wondered whether jointly analyzing the CSFS from both the CEU (Utah residents with Northern and Western European ancestry) and YRI genomes could provide additional resolution. Under model C, we simulated introgression before and after the split between African and non-African populations and observed qualitative differences between the two models in the high-frequency–derived allele bins of the CSFS in African and non-African populations (fig. S40). Using ABC to jointly fit the high-frequency–derived allele bins of the CSFS in CEU and YRI (defined as greater than 50% frequency), we find that the lower limit on the 95% credible interval of the introgression time is older than the simulated split between CEU and YRI (2800 versus 2155 generations B.P.), indicating that at least part of the archaic lineages seen in the YRI are also shared with the CEU (section S9.2).

We then attempted to understand the fine-scale distribution of archaic ghost ancestry along the genomes of present-day Africans. We used a recently developed statistical method (ArchIE) that combines multiple population genetic statistics to identify segments of diverged ancestry in 50 YRI and 50 MSL genomes without the need for an archaic reference genome (section S7) (23). Briefly, the method uses summary statistics computed from present-day genome sequences as input to a logistic regression model to estimate the probability that a haploid segment of an individual genome (defined as a contiguous region of length 50 kilobases) is archaic. While the parameters of the model are estimated by simulating data under a model that closely matches the demographic history relating Neanderthals and non-Africans, we found that ArchIE has 68% power to detect archaic segments at a false discovery rate of about 7% under our best-fit demographic model, confirming that its inferences are robust and sensitive to archaic introgression in Africa.

On average, ≃6.6 and ≃7.0% of the genome sequences in YRI and MSL were labeled as putatively archaic in ancestry. We sought to test whether the putatively archaic segments identified in YRI and MSL traced their primary ancestry to other African populations (8–10) or to known archaic hominins such as the Neanderthals or Denisovans. We computed the divergence of these segments to a genome sequence from each of six populations: southern African KhoeSan, Jul‘hoan; two Central African pygmy populations (Biaka and Mbuti); and two archaic hominin populations (Neanderthal and Denisovan). We expect segments introgressed from any of these populations to be less diverged relative to nonarchaic segments. On the contrary, the putatively archaic segments are more diverged, consistent with their source not being any of these populations (Fig. 3C and section S7.1). Merging the putatively archaic segments across individual genomes, we obtained a total of 482 and 502 Mb of archaic genome sequence in the YRI and MSL, respectively. We estimated the distribution of the time to the most recent common ancestor (TMRCA) between segments labeled archaic and those labeled nonarchaic using the pairwise mode of multiple sequentially Markovian coalescent (MSMC) (Fig. 3B and section S7.2) (24) and observed that the TMRCA is larger for the putatively archaic class of segments. Specifically, we find that the median nonarchaic segment coalescent time is 0.865 Ma ago for both populations, while the median archaic segment coalescent time is 1.51 Ma ago for YRI and 1.15 Ma ago for MSL (1.69- and 1.23-fold increases in age for YRI and MSL, respectively).

We examined the frequencies of archaic segments to investigate whether natural selection could have shaped the distribution of archaic alleles (fig. S40). We found 33 loci with an archaic segment frequency of ≥50% in the YRI (a cutoff chosen to be larger than the 99.9th percentile of introgressed archaic allele frequencies based on a neutral simulation of archaic introgression with parameters related to the time of introgression and admixture fraction chosen conservatively to maximize the drift since introgression; section S7.3 and fig. S40) and 37 loci in the MSL. Some of these genes are at high frequency across both the YRI and MSL, including NF1, a tumor suppressor gene (83% in YRI, 85% in MSL), MTFR2, a gene involved with mitochondrial aerobic respiration in the testis (67% in YRI, 78% in MSL), HSD17B2, a gene involved with hormone regulation (74% in YRI, 68% in MSL), KCNIP4, which is a gene involved with potassium channels (73% in YRI, 69% in MSL), and TRPS1, a gene associated with trichorhinophalangeal syndrome (71% in YRI, 75% in MSL; Table 1). Three of these genes have been found in previous scans for positive selection in the YRI: NF1 (25, 26), KCNIP4 (27), and TRPS1 (28). On the other hand, we do not find elevated frequencies at MUC7, a gene previously found to harbor signatures of archaic introgression (29).


Our analyses document introgression in four present-day West African populations from an archaic population that likely diverged before the split of modern humans and the ancestors of Neanderthals and Denisovans. A number of previous studies have found evidence for deeply diverged lineages contributing genetic ancestry to the Pygmy (8, 9) and Yoruba (7, 30) populations. Analyses of ancient African genomes have revealed that stone-age hunter-gatherers from South Africa diverged from other modern-day populations >260,000 years (31) B.P. and that present-day West African populations trace part of their ancestry to a basal lineage that diverged before the split of the southern African San (20) (although an alternative model consistent with their data includes a complex pattern of isolation by distance between western, eastern, and southern African populations). Placing our results within the context of the complex patterns of deep divergences in the African populations will require the analysis of a diverse set of African populations that include the southern African San populations, as well as the inclusion of ancient African genomes that lack signals of recent admixture that are present in the present-day San populations (32).

One interpretation of the recent time of introgression that we document is that archaic forms persisted in Africa until fairly recently (33). Alternately, the archaic population could have introgressed earlier into a modern human population, which then subsequently interbred with the ancestors of the populations that we have analyzed here. The models that we have explored here are not mutually exclusive, and it is plausible that the history of African populations includes genetic contributions from multiple divergent populations, as evidenced by the large effective population size associated with the introgressing archaic population. Relatively, recent fossils with archaic features (or combinations of archaic and modern human features) have been found in the fossil record in Africa and the Middle East. While anatomically modern humans appear in the fossil record around 200,000 years ago, fossils with a combination of archaic and modern features can be found across sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East until as recently as 35,000 years ago (34). Examples of these fossils include a cranium from Iwo Eleru (33) and human remains from Ishango (35) that have been interpreted as being consistent with deep structure and representing a complex history of interaction between modern and archaic hominins in Africa.

The signals of introgression in the West African populations that we have analyzed raise questions regarding the identity of the archaic hominin and its interactions with the modern human populations in Africa. Analysis of the CSFS in the Luhya from Webuye, Kenya (LWK) also reveals signals of archaic introgression, although our interpretation is complicated by recent admixture in the LWK that involves populations related to western Africans and eastern African hunter-gatherers (section S8) (20). Non-African populations (Han Chinese in Beijing and Utah residents with northern and western European ancestry) also show analogous patterns in the CSFS, suggesting that a component of archaic ancestry was shared before the split of African and non-African populations. A detailed understanding of archaic introgression and its role in adapting to diverse environmental conditions will require analysis of genomes from extant and ancient genomes across the geographic range of Africa.

Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of State and State AG Warn Philadelphia Not To Comply With Senate Authorized Ballot Audit, Senator Mastriano Responds

If you added the election fraud in Atlanta (GA), Clark County (NV), Maricopa County (AZ), Cook County (IL) and Wayne County (MI) together, you would only have a quarter of the election fraud that exists in Philadelphia.  That is the scale of historic, generationally evident, fraud in Philadelphia county.

That is also the context for why any attempt to audit Philadelphia will become a cataclysmic battleground.

The revolutionary battles of Lexington and Concord will almost equate in modern significance if the people who live in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania can pull this off and stand victorious.

Everyone knows Philly is massively corrupt, even the most hardened Democrats will admit they know it; but no-one knows the exact scale of that Democrat corruption that has controlled Philadelphia County elections for decades; and an independent forensic ballot audit would reveal it.

That scale of known Philadelphia ballot fraud is exactly why the Acting Secretary of State in Pennsylvania, Veronica W. Degraffenreid, has issued a state-wide directive seeking to block any Pennsylvania legislative attempt to audit the 2020 election results [pdf LINK].

The law is on the side of the legislature. The PA Senate has the power and legal authority, but Governor Wolf, Secretary of State Degraffenreid and State Attorney General Josh Shapiro just don’t care.

They can, and will, lose every court battle and still they will not comply.

Senator Doug Mastriano responds:  [Twitter Link and Rumble Link]  Mastriano knows of the power of the Legislature to oversee elections and conduct investigations to serve that constitutional purpose.  Mastriano knows the law is on his side. (read more)

(contributing to the delinquency of minors)

Yes, kink belongs at Pride. And I want my kids to see it.

Children need to know that they can make their own ways in the world [as sex workers or fetishists]

Our family often took the train into Philadelphia, but as we rode across the bridge to attend the city’s Pride parade five years ago, my wife’s leg bounced with a nervous jitter. She squeezed my hand, worried that she might run into a colleague or be harassed by a stranger. My wife is trans, and wasn’t out at the time, so she typically only expressed her authenticity in the privacy of our home. That morning she wore a green skirt and light makeup, brushing her hair all to one side. Even though we’d attended Pride marches and protests in previous years, that day was our first celebrating openly as a family.

When our children grew tired of marching, we plopped onto a nearby curb. Just as we got settled, our elementary-schooler pointed in the direction of oncoming floats, raising an eyebrow at a bare-chested man in dark sunglasses whose black suspenders clipped into a leather thong. The man paused to be spanked playfully by a partner with a flog. “What are they doing?” my curious kid asked as our toddler cheered them on. The pair was the first of a few dozen kinksters who danced down the street, laughing together as they twirled their whips and batons, some leading companions by leashes. At the time, my children were too young to understand the nuance [Not nuance, it's depravity, you idiot.] of the situation, but I told them the truth: That these folks were members of our community celebrating who they are and what they like to do.

The kink community has participated in Pride since its inception — risking their jobs and safety to be authentically themselves in public. Still, every year as Pride Month approaches, a debate erupts about whether kink belongs at Pride at all. Those hoping to oust kinksters often cite the presence of children as their top concern. That was pointedly the case this year when Twitter users argued that kink at Pride is a highly sexualized experience that children should be shielded from. Thousands of users supported these posts, claiming that kink at Pride crosses a line because minors also attend events. I agree that Pride should be a welcoming space for children and teens {to become acclimated to depravity and perversions], but policing how others show up doesn’t protect or uplift young people [being groomed by depraved parents]. Instead, homogenizing self-expression at Pride will do more harm to our children than good [Then, might you also expose them to urophilia, coprophilia and pedophilia? Why stop with tawdry paraphilias and fetishes? Are you a prude?]. When my own children caught glimpses of kink culture, they got to see that the queer community encompasses so many more nontraditional ways of being, living, and loving [How I wish Child Protective Services and the criminal justice system would remove your babies from your malign influence and lock you up.].

As much as I want them to spend time in queer spaces so they can be with families like their own, I also want them to know that they shouldn’t limit their understanding of what relationships or expression look like to whatever is most familiar. I want them to see that they can make their own ways in the world — and know that they’ll be supported and celebrated by their community [You are Satanic. You are evil incarnate. Your parental rights should be terminated.]. If we want our children to learn and grow from their experiences at Pride, we should hope that they’ll encounter kink when they attend. How else can they learn about the scope and vitality of queer life? [You are sick; seriously sick. You should not be allowed to be anywhere near children.]

Anti-kink advocates tend to manipulate language about safety and privacy by asserting that attendees are non-consensually exposed to overt displays of sexuality. The most outrageous claim is that innocent bystanders are forced to participate in kink simply by sharing space with the kink community, as if the presence of kink at Pride is a perverse exhibition that kinksters pursue for their own gratification. But kinksters at Pride are not engaged in sex acts [How do you know they are not sexually aroused?] — and we cannot confuse their self-expression with obscenity [You must be wearing rainbow-colored glasses.]. Co-opting the language of sexual autonomy only serves to bury that truth and muddies the seriousness of other conversations about consent. If this all sounds familiar, it’s because anti-kink rhetoric echoes the same socialized disgust people have projected onto other queer people when they claim that our love is not appropriate for public spaces. It’s a sentiment that tolerates queerness only if it stays within parameters [Yes, civilized people do not display filth in public.] — offering the kind of acceptance that comes with a catch. The middle-aged, White men who I grew up with said they were “fine” with gay people as long as they wouldn’t be subjected to PDA — as long as all signs of queer love could be outwardly erased. Queer people’s freedom to be themselves is, according to this logic, contingent on non-queer people’s freedom from exposure to it.

The arguable difference here is that many of the latest objections are coming from self-identified queer people, but that shouldn’t necessarily be surprising. Respectability politics demand that queer people assimilate as much as possible into cis- and heteronormativity, hewing to mainstream cultural standards. [Why yes. We are human beings, not bonobos that copulate incessantly.] Members of the queer community have internalized those norms to the point that we judge ourselves by them, and then criticize and ostracize others if they don’t uphold them, too. This is the same oppressive message that prevented my wife from transitioning for 30 years, and the same message that still keeps marginalized children from coming to terms with their own experiences with desire and embodiment.

Children who witness kink culture are reassured that alternative experiences of sexuality and expression are valid — no matter who they become as they mature, helping them recognize that their personal experiences aren’t bad or wrong, and that they aren’t alone in their experiences. I can’t think of a more relevant or important reminder for youth, who often struggle with feelings of isolation and confusion as they discover more about themselves and wrestle with concerns about whether they’re normal enough. Including kink in Pride opens space for families to have necessary and powerful conversations with young people about health, safety, consent, and — most uniquely — pleasure. Kink visibility is a reminder that any person can and should shamelessly explore what brings joy and excitement [Idi Amin Dada* and Jeffrey Dahmer were excited by cannibalism. Was that OK?]. We don’t talk to our children enough about pursuing sex to fulfill carnal needs that delight and captivate us in the moment [Good parents protect their children. Good parents know that innocence, once lost, can never be recovered.]. Sharing the language of kink culture with young people provides them with valuable information about safe sex practices — such as the importance of establishing boundaries, safe words and signals, affirming the importance of planning and research and the need to seek and give enthusiastic consent. I never want my children to worry that exploring any aspect of consensual sex or touch is too taboo [Everything you have written is admissible in a court of law. I pray they throw the book at you.].

If we’re afraid to talk about kink with our children, we prioritize the status quo — sanitizing and censoring their access to information about appropriate and normal self-expression. These are the very attitudes that made Pride necessary — and life-affirming — for so many of us in the first place, and we have no business imposing them on the next generation. Kink embodies the freedom that Pride stands for, reminding attendees to unapologetically take up space as an act of resistance and celebration — refusing to bend to social pressure that asks us to be presentable. That’s a value I want my children to learn [You are a narcissistic sociopath. More than 98% of adults are normal - they are heterosexual. Odds are the children in your "family" will turn out heterosexual. However, thanks to you and the cross dresser in your life, they will have been exposed to deviancy and perversions that will leave scars. Thanks to you, they might be unable to enjoy a healthy and fulfilling, life-long relationship.]. Affirming the kink community helps our children to love themselves and others with courage and resilience. If my wife and I had seen such fierce and determined role models as young people, we might have learned to be ourselves much sooner. We didn’t have that chance, but my children have that community in Pride, and I want to keep it that way. (read more from Jeff Bezos' Washington Post)

Reader Comment to the above article published by Jeff Bezos' Washington Post:

From my perspective, this is child abuse, pure and simple.  OK, different parents have different moral standards, but NO CHILD should be exposed to that stuff at such a young age. It's just inappropriate.  I have huge difficulties with her views on sex and what she thinks is appropriate. That's important, but a different subject I guess.  But exposing young kids to this kind of stuff, hetero or homosexual stuff, is just not appropriate!  I feel genuinely sorry for her kids!

And, of course, it is not only the author here who is to blame.  We read this in the Washington Post.  Jeff Bezos, are you seriously OK with this kind of harmful junk being pushed by your paper?  OK, it is the WaPO, I know, but still, this is really, really low even for them!

Regarding the 1619 Propaganda Project:

To be clear, it was not the official policy of the King of England nor of any of his advisors, nor of the Virginia Company, itself, to promote slavery – whether of white or black people. The issue of how to acquire the labor needed to sustain colonial Virginia was worked out independently – but with awareness and tacit approval of distant heads-of-state. Therefore, by 1619, it was perfectly acceptable for the colonial governor of Virginia, George Yeardley, as well as other colonists who could afford them, to own white, British-born slaves (indentured servants). Some colonists also kept slaves captured from native American tribes.

The arrival in Virginia of black, African-born people to work as slaves occurred almost accidentally. A Dutch ship, the White Lion, captained by an English privateer, intercepted a Portuguese slaver bound for Veracruz and took twenty-one Africans as booty. The ship sailed for Virginia where the captain, John Colyn Jope, bartered the Africans for food and supplies from the colonists. The Africans were treated no better yet no worse than the white “indentured servants”. Two of the Africans were permitted to marry and, 4 years later, produced the first black child born in North America (considered a free black at that time).

“In Africa the same problems exist, though for the present they are less menacing. Everything done by European administrators to improve the lot of Africans is, at present, totally and utterly futile because of the growth of population. The Africans, not unnaturally, though now mistakenly, attribute their destitution to their exploitation by the white man. If they achieve freedom suddenly before they have men trained in administration and a habit of responsibility, such civilization as white men have brought to Africa will quickly disappear. It is no use for doctrinaire liberals to deny this; there is a standing proof in the Island of Haiti.”
