Research shows that the large proportion of Jews in positions of power can be fully explained by the available data on human intelligence. Proper statistics completely explains that the 2% Jewish population in the US contributes roughly 30% to high achievement. This research is silenced by editors of scientific journals not allowing peer review. Proper science on intelligence and behavior is effectively forbidden. It is such a taboo that even if something is helpful against anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, the establishment rather lets anti-Semitism unopposed than admitting that intelligence is about 80% genetic or that Blacks have on average low intelligence.

More than half, namely 60% of college graduates are female. Is this discrimination against men? And is the currently loudly demanded (and at Missouri University apparently well received) number of 10% Black faculty reasonable, or is this rather racist anti-East-Asian anti-Semitic discrimination?

As a whistle-blower and interdisciplinary scientist who appreciates the strength of philosophical arguments (read: logic!), I receive idiotic rejections declining to publish my work, perusing laughably silly justifications all the time. This is understandable in today’s throughout PC, eggshell walking careerist academia and publish-or-perish corrupted scientific community. But there are different degrees of how sure-of-themselves proud the rejections are for example. Physicists usually at least pretend to argue something, no matter it is clear that the editor or reviewers have not read beyond the abstract and reference list in order to find out whether they were cited.


  So called "memristors" are an intriguing hot topic in electronics and nanotechnology, and highly controversial to boot. A certain type of memristor device was predicted to exist in 1971. Being perhaps a simple electrical component much like a resistor or capacitor, HP claimed to have discovered the missing memristor in 2008, except, "The Missing Memristor has Not been Found" [Nature Publishing Group’s Scientific Reports 5, 11657 (1215)]
