George Washington University professor says she lied about being black

If “white privilege” is such a real thing and beneficial, why do white people lie about being black?

From Yahoo: A US academic whose work focuses on Africa and the African diaspora has said she lied about being black.

Jessica Krug, an associate professor at George Washington University, admitted that she was in fact a white Jewish woman from Kansas City.

“I have built my life on a violent anti-Black lie, and I have lied in every breath I have taken,” she wrote.

Her case bears strong parallels to Rachel Dolezal, a white race activist who claimed to be black. Ms. Dolezal first made headlines in 2015 when her parents outed her as white.

The former civil rights activist and African studies instructor had kept up the pretence of being African American for years, but said she “identified as black”.

Writing in a Medium post published on Thursday, Jessica Krug said she had falsely assumed identities “that I had no right to claim: first North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness”.

She described this behaviour as “the very epitome of violence, of thievery and appropriation, of the myriad ways in which non-Black people continue to use and abuse Black identities and cultures”, adding that she had continued the pretence even in her personal relationships.

She blamed her lies on mental health issues and trauma experienced in her early years, although she said this was not an excuse for her actions.

Ms. Krug’s post did not give a reason for her decision to admit her deception, nor its timing. However, screenwriter Hari Ziyad said her admission came “because she had been found out”.

“Jess Krug… is someone I called a friend up until this morning when she gave me a call admitting to everything written here. She didn’t do it out of benevolence,” he wrote on Twitter.

According to media reports, Ms. Krug also used the name Jessica La Bombalera as an activist.

In one video posted earlier this year, she berated white New Yorkers for failing to “yield their time for Black and Brown indigenous New Yorkers”.

George Washington University, where Ms. Krug teaches courses in African, Caribbean and diaspora history, has said it is “aware” of Ms. Krug’s Medium post but could not comment further on the case.

The real story: It’s not just a few big Democrat cities that are burning

Demorats have generally ignored rioting in the streets and have suggested that President Trump is the cause of any social disruption. Mainstream media have suggested that the rioting is confined to half a dozen big cities. Republicans have blamed Demorat mayors and governors for not bringing the riots under control.

But fact is, none of us are getting the true picture of what is happening to this country. Protests and riots have occurred in all 50 states. The Army National Guard has been deployed to at least 23 states and the District of Columbia to combat rioters and looters. More than 350 cities and towns have been wracked with unrest—all this while left-wing socialist/communist government officials sit in complacent approval of the mayhem.

Our country is coming apart at the seams. Nero fiddles while Rome burns.

What follows is research published on June 2, 2020 by Mohammed Haddad, writing for Aljazeera. These data are more than two months old.

I have to wonder, how much worse is it now?

Venezuelan Warns US: Socialism Starts by Destroying Monuments and Censoring Everything

The left’s socialist/communist’s playbook never changes. The reason is simple. It generally achieves its goal of turning free and democratic countries into totalitarian cesspools where a dictatorial government subjugates its citizens and destroys a vibrant capitalist economy all in the name of “equality.” Venezuela is one such socialist utopia.

Venezuela was once the richest and most promising country in Latin America. It has the largest oil reserves in the world, and for a long time it had a growing democracy. But today, its economic and democratic institutions have failed. While inflation skyrockets, food and medicine have become so expensive that for the country’s poor, who now make up a staggering 82 percent of the population, cannot afford to buy them. Many are reduced to eating out of garbage dumps. Theft and murder are endemic, and the ruling Maduro government keeps an iron grip on the people.

Now, Elizabeth Rogliani, an activist who was among the more than two million Venezuelans who have fled their country since dits economy collapsed, has a warning for us.

Andrés Guilarte, who remains in Venezuela, describes his perspective on what socialism will do to the United States if Americans ignore the current turmoil that is dividing the country.

African-American professor finds more than 2 in 3 hate crimes are fake

Jason L. Riley reports for the Wall St. Journal, June 25, 2020, that Wilfred Reilly, an assistant professor of political science at Kentucky State University, compiled a database of 346 hate-crime allegations and determined that less than a third were genuine.

Reilly then put together a data set of more than 400 confirmed cases of fake hate-crime a1llegations that were reported to authorities between 2010 and 2017. He maintains that the exact number of false reports is probably unknowable, but that what can be said “with absolute confidence is that the actual number of hate crime hoaxes is indisputably large. We are not speaking here of just a few bad apples.”

Reilly calls the Jussie Smollett case “the archetype of a hate crime hoax” and “one of the most flamboyant examples of the genre.” According to Rilley, an openly gay black man residing in Chicago — one of the country’s most liberal and diverse metropolises — is set upon by two white Donald Trump supporters who brandish bleach and a noose while shouting racial and antigay slurs “was a situation so extreme and bizarre that I think we would have had to look at how much racial progress the U.S. had actually made had it really occurred.”

But, of course, Smollett had made it all up, including buying the rope for the noose himself, and paying two Nigerian brothers to pose as his attackers.

Although the appointment of last week’s appointment of a special prosecutor in Chicago to take up the Smollett case is a good sign, Professor Reilly notes that media interest and coverage of the Smollett case has all but evaporated. He points out in his new book, Hate Crime Hoax: How the Left is Selling a Fake Race War, on about 100 fake hate-crimes, that the initial media publicity for supposed hate crimes tends all but to disappear if the allegations are exposed as fake. and that the media’s relative lack of interest in exposing hoaxes that don’t involve famous figures is a big part of the problem.

Reilly’s interest in hate crimes dates to his graduate-school days, when he became aware of several widely reported incidents in the vicinity of his hometown, Chicago, that turned out to be fake. In 2012 a popular gay bar in suburban Chicago was destroyed by fire, and the owner cited homophobia as the reason. The same year, black students at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside reported death threats from hate groups and found a noose hanging from a dorm room door. Ultimately, the owner of the bar pleaded guilty to arson and insurance fraud, and a black student at the university fessed up to sending racist threats and planting the noose.

Reilly found that “This phenomenon of fake hate crimes did not appear to be small-scale or regionally based.” Some examples:

  • A gay pastor in Texas accused a Whole Foods store of selling him a cake with a slur written in icing. The store produced video evidence that the pastor was lying.
  • A white woman in Oregon disfigured her own face with acid and claimed a black man had attacked her. Later, she admitted fabricating the entire story.
  • After signs that read “blacks only” and “whites only” were found at bathroom entrances on the University at Buffalo campus in upstate New York, a black graduate student confessed to posting them.

Reilly’s bigger concern is the politicization of hate crimes, especially where racial minorities are the supposed victims. Those alleged incidents are invariably seized upon by politicians and activists looking to feed a belief among liberals that discrimination and oppression are the main drivers of inequality. According to Reilly, “In the mainstream media we hear almost constant talk about scary new forms of racism: ‘white privilege,’ ‘cultural appropriation,’ and ‘subtle bigotry,” but “a huge percentage of the horrific hate crimes cited as evidence of contemporary bigotry are fakes.”

Wall St. Journal doesn’t identify Professor Wilfred Reilly as black, but his pic on a Kentucky State University website shows him to be one.

Hypocrite: Epidemiologist whose computer model prompted coronavirus lockdown policy had trysts with married woman

Neil Ferguson, 52, a quintessential beta male from the looks of him, is an epidemiologist and professor of mathematical biology at Imperial College, London, UK, and head of the college’s COVID-19 Response Team..

Ferguson specialises in the patterns of spread of infectious disease in humans and animals. He creates mathematical models to study and make policy recommendations on infectious diseases, including the ebola virus, HIV, swine flu, SARS and smallpox.

In February 2020, using statistical models, Ferguson sounded the alarm that cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) were significantly under-detected (only 10% detected) in China, and that travellers from China had started chains of transmission within the countries they entered, including the UK.

In March, Ferguson gained widespread media attention when his COVID-19 Response Team published projections that the UK could face hundreds of thousands of deaths from COVID-19 without strict social distancing measures, but that with “strict social distancing, testing and isolation of infected cases”, deaths in the UK could fall to less than 20,000. The article concludes that “Many more deaths will be averted through ensuring that [non-pharmaceutical] interventions remain in place until transmission drops to low levels.” By “non-pharmaceutical interventions” is meant “case isolation, the closure of schools and universities, banning of mass gatherings and/or public events, and most recently, widescale social distancing including local and national lockdowns.” (See “Report 13: Estimating the number of infections and the impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions on COVID-19 in 11 European countries“)

A government advisor on the UK’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) committee, Ferguson wielded great influence on the UK government’s policy on infectious diseases. As Toby Young of Spectator USA puts it:

The professor of mathematical biology at Imperial College London seemed to have bewitched successive prime ministers, blinding them with his brilliance. Whenever a health emergency broke out, whether it was mad cow disease or avian flu, there he was, PowerPoint in hand, telling the leaders of the United Kingdom what to do. And they invariably fell into line.

On March 23, Prime Minister Boris Johnson was persuaded by Ferguson’s COVID-19 mathematical models to impose a lockdown on the whole uk population, banning all “non-essential” travel and contact with people outside one’s home, and shutting almost all businesses, venues, facilities, amenities and places of worship.

So it is the height of hypocrisy and deceit that Neil Ferguson chose to violate the lockdown policy he himself had recommended by having his married mistress, Antonia Staats, 38, visit him at his London home during the lockdown. Ferguson is also married, albeit “separated,” with one son.

According to the Telegraph, Staats made her first visit to Ferguson’s London flat on March 30, twelve days after Ferguson, on March 18, announced he’d tested positive for COVID-19 and that he was self-isolating in his flat.

On April 4, despite having violated the lockdown rule Ferguson told listeners of “BBC Today” that the lockdown must continue at least till the end of May because that would “risk the epidemic getting worse.”

The following week, on April 8, Staats made a second visit to Ferguson’s flat, despite telling friends she suspected that her husband had coronavirus symptoms.

A native of Germany, Staats is a rabid leftist who campaigned against Brexit and for an end to fossil fuel subsidies. She has been praised by Al Gore and Martin Schulz, the president of the unelected EU Parliament. Staats lives with her husband, an academic, and two children in a £1.9 million ($2.35 million) house in south London, and reportedly has an “open” marriage. She told friends she does not believe her and Ferguson’s actions to be hypocritical because she considers their two households to be one.

Two days later, on April 10, again speaking on “BBC Today,” Ferguson insisted that the lockdown must continue, despite the “huge” economic costs, social costs, personal and health costs.

Like Staats, Ferguson also believes he did nothing wrong. He told the Telegraph that he’d “acted in the belief that I was immune, having tested positive for coronavirus and completely isolated myself for almost two weeks after developing symptoms.” He allowed that “I deeply regret any undermining of the clear messages around the continued need for social distancing,” and insisted that the lockdown “is unequivocal, and is there to protect all of us.”

On Tuesday night, May 5, Ferguson admitted he had made an “error of judgment” and resigned from his government role on the SAGE committee.

Not only is Neil Ferguson a hypocrite and adulterer, his computer models have been found to be grossly inaccurate.

As recounted by Toby Young, Ferguson’s computer model predicted that if the Swedish government continued to pursue its “reckless” non-lockdown COVID-19 policy, the Swedish healthcare system would be overwhelmed 40-fold. By May 1, 40,000 Swedes would die of COVID-19, and 96,000 would die by the end of the year.

As of the time of this post, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Sweden is 25,265, and the number of COVID-19 deaths is 3,175 — 36,835 fewer deaths than what Ferguson’s computer model had predicted. (Worldometer)

Meanwhile, Neil Ferguson has become synonymous with hypocrisy.

If you search for “Neil Ferguson” on Wikipedia, you’ll be directed to Wiki‘s entry on “Hypocrisy”. LOL

Is Covid-19 man made and released from a Wuhan lab? Evidence of genome editing

I’ve been seeing a lot of the same story being told by various media outlets.  All  pushing the same  narrative, “scientists confirm Covid19 is not a manmade bioweapon”.  It’s only fair that I show the other side of the argument.

There is a scientist that says covid-19 is man made and was released from Wuhan lab.  The story was first published on March 2. 2020.

A Taiwanese scientist has claimed Chinese microbiologists probably created coronavirus in Wuhan, China.

Based on the virus unusual structure it is most likely “man made” and there is a theory coronavirus was somehow leaked or released from the Institute of Virology in Wuhan China, said Professor Fang Chi-tai from the National Taiwan University (NTU).

Professor Fang said China’s track record with safety standards and laboratory management has been questioned in the past.

The Professor claims it was very possible that the Wuhan Chinese scientists created the deadly virus by simply adding four amino acids to an existing bat virus, which therefore makes it much easier to transmit to people.

Professor Fang added, “The mutations found in the novel coronavirus are unusual in an academic sense.

“It is indeed possible that it is a man-made product.

“From an academic point of view, it is indeed possible that the amino acids were added to COVID-19 in the lab by humans.”

I should point out that Wuhan has the Wuhan Institute of Virology. It’s a level 4 laboratory that was used to store, handle and research samples of SARS, Ebola and other deadly infectious viruses. Fang mentioned the possibility of the virus being leaked from there due to gross mismanagement.  Fang also said,

Analyses of the Covid-19 virus have shown that it had a 96% genetic similarity with an RaTG13 bat virus also stored at the institute, and that the Covid-19 could be “manufactured” by modifying the RaTG13 virus.

French researchers had discovered four more amino acids in the gene sequence of Covid-19 than other known coronaviruses, which could be added artificially to make the viral transmission easier.

The following was also mentioned,

In February Chinese scientist announced the true cause of the spread of coronavirus, who broke cover and said the oubreak started in a science laboratory in Wuhan yards away from a wet market.

A scientist told how a sick bat attacked the researchers and bled on them and urinated on another, they were then forced to quarantine themselves for 14 days.

Biologists Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao published a pre-print entitled “The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus.”

The report describes how “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.

“We noted two laboratories conducting research on bat coronavirus in Wuhan, one of which was only 280 metres from the seafood market.

“We briefly examined the histories of the laboratories and proposed that the coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory.

Evidence for RNA editing in the transcriptome of 2019 Novel Coronavirus

For additional evidence of human influence in  the Coronavirus, I’ve provided a link to a PDF file titled  “Evidence for RNA editing in the transcriptome of 2019 Novel Coronavirus”.

It comes from bioRxiv.  You won’t hear anything about this in main stream news.  I’ve seen 1 article and it was an attempt to debunk the discovery by accusing the scientists of running a “shabby operation”.   Still, the critic never said the discovery was inaccurate.

The 2019-nCoV outbreak has become a global health risk. Editing by host deaminases is an innate
15 restriction process to counter viruses, and it is not yet known whether it operates against
coronaviruses. Here we analyze RNA sequences from bronchoalveolar lavage fluids derived from
two Wuhan patients. We identify nucleotide changes that may be signatures of RNA editing:
Adenosine-to-Inosine changes from ADAR deaminases and Cytosine-to-Uracil changes from
APOBEC ones. A mutational analysis of genomes from different strains of human-hosted
Coronaviridae reveals patterns similar to the RNA editing pattern observed in the 2019-nCoV
transcriptomes. Our results suggest that both APOBECs and ADARs are involved in Coronavirus
genome editing, a process that may shape the fate of both virus and patient.

The scientist behind this discovery are Salvatore Di Giorgio, Filippo Martignano, Maria Gabriella Torcia, Giorgio Mattiuz, Silvestro G. Conticello.

Professor says gender is a “social category” hence her study result: Trans children sense their gender identities at young ages

A bunch of junk science in this selective study.

The lead author of this study, Selin Gulgoz, is an assistant professor whose research interests “lie at the intersection of social and cognitive development, with emphasis on children’s reasoning about the social world.”

You can see on her bio that she defines everything about gender in a “social” construct. Her bio states, “I’ve been studying children’s beliefs about the nature of social categories like gender, their understanding of status hierarchies and how they might correspond to differences between people of different genders, and how children’s essentialist beliefs about gender might relate to their attitudes and behaviors toward gender in-groups and out-groups.”

So you can imagine the predicted outcome of a study she recently led for the University of Washington.

Apparently transgender children may start to identify with toys and clothes typical of their gender identity from a very young age. The NBC story states that the confidence of “trans” children in their gender identity is generally as strong as that of cisgender children, whose identity matches their sex assigned at birth. Excerpts from the propaganda:

Trans kids are showing strong identities and preferences that are different from their assigned sex,” lead author Selin Gulgoz said in a press statement. “There is almost no difference between these trans- and cisgender kids of the same gender identity — both in how, and the extent to which, they identify with their gender or express that gender.”

For the study, researchers interviewed 317 transgender children, ages 3 to 12, and 189 of the children’s siblings. They also interview 316 cisgender kids.

Researchers asked the children how much they felt like a boy or girl or something else. They also asked about preferences for toys and clothes that are stereotypically associated with one gender.

The transgender kids showed strong preferences for toys and clothing typically associated with their gender identity, not their assigned sex, the study found. Their preferences didn’t appear to differ based on how long they had lived as their current gender.

The similarities among transgender and cisgender children were surprising, researchers said, because early in life, the transgender kids had been treated as a gender other than the one they currently identify as.

“These findings suggest that children might not be simply learning about gender based on what their parents tell them about their own gender or how they treat them early on (which would be about the gender associated with their assigned sex),” Gulgoz told Reuters Health by email.

“Instead, the findings suggest that children may be selectively attending to broader social messages regarding the gender they feel they are, from early ages,” said Gulgoz did the work at the University of Washington in Seattle and will start a new position this winter at Fordham University.

One limitation of the study is that all the transgender kids lived in families that affirmed their current gender identity, the study team notes. Their experiences might not reflect what would happen for transgender youth who lived in less supportive environments.

Researchers also only looked at children at one point in time. Gender expression or identity for some of them might shift in the future, or their level of support and affirmation might change.”

Of course: Eating out at restaurants and having a large amount of sweets is bad news for your carbon footprint

At this point, I expect the “experts” to tell us that the only thing that isn’t bad for your carbon footprint is abortion and doctor-assisted suicide.

From Daily Mail: Families that often dine out and consume large quantities of sweets and alcohol are likely to have a higher carbon footprint than meat eaters, a study claims.

Researchers came to this conclusion after studying the food habits and carbon footprints of around 60,000 households across Japan.

They found that meat consumption typically only accounts for only 10 per cent of the different in environmental impact between low and high carbon households.

In contrast, households with high carbon footprints typically consumed around two to three times more sweets and alcohol than those with low footprints.

Based on their findings, the team are now advising people to cut down their intake on these products to help save the planet.

Nature and colleagues surveyed the food supply chain and consumption habits of around 60,000 households from across Japan’s 47 prefectures.

The researchers found that the levels of meat consumption were largely constant from household-to-households, but their carbon footprints varied considerably — with other foodstuffs appearing more responsible.

Eating out, for example, was found to contribute 175 per cent more carbon emissions for the average household than eating meats.

In fact, dining in restaurants was seen to contribute an annual average of 770 kilograms of greenhouse gases towards the environmental impact of those households with a high carbon footprint. In contrast, meat consumption cost just 280 kilograms.

In Japan, many households have turned vegan after learning that beef production emits 20 times the emissions per gram of protein as growing beans.

Professor Kanemoto and colleagues, however, have said that a one-size-fits-all policy is ill-advised. ‘If we think of a carbon tax, it might be wiser to target sweets and alcohol if we want a progressive system,’ said Professor Kanemoto.

Our findings suggest that high carbon footprints are not only a problem for a small number of meat lovers in Japan.’

‘If we are serious about reducing our carbon footprints, then our diets must change.’

MSM corrupt America by promoting polyamory

“[I]t is hard to imagine anything more social in its effects, and more determinative of what kind of a society we will have, than our customs and laws regarding sex, marriage, and the raising of children. For sex results in children. Have we forgotten this?…. Sexual morality is for the protection and promotion of the natural (biological) family, and of adoptive families that affirm the natural by exemplar. The family is both the cradle of society and one of the great ends for which we form societies in the first place. So it is nonsense to say that right and wrong as regards sex are ours to determine for ourselves. Those laws and customs form a language we all must use. We cannot have a private language.” –Anthony Esolen

If you still doubt that the mainstream media are anti-American and are actively working on corrupting our society, this post should remove all doubt.

Last May, Gallup conducted its annual Values and Beliefs poll on the American people’s views on the moral acceptability of 21 issues.

The poll found that despite our bitter partisan divisions, conservatives and liberals are broadly united in their belief that these five behaviors are morally wrong: suicide, cloning animals, cloning humans, polygamy, and extramarital affairs:

  • An overwhelming majority of Americans, 80%, believe polygamy to be morally wrong.
  • An even greater majority, 89%, believe “married men and women having an affair” is morally wrong.

But the major television networks are actively promoting sexual promiscuity and “polyamory” — which the Cambridge Dictionary defines as “the practice of having sexual or romantic relationships with two or more people at the same time.”

Peter Hasson reports for The Daily Caller, Oct. 29, 2019, that “major media outlets” are normalizing non-monogamous relationships.

The latest major media outlet to do so is CBSN, the digital streaming arm of CBS News, which aired an hourlong special, “Non-Monogamy,” last Sunday (Oct. 27) night.

The special portrayed non-monogamous relationships in a sympathetic light. CBS promoted the special in an Oct. 25 press release two days before the program’s airing:

For years, monogamy has dominated what society perceives as, and allows to be, ‘normal,’ but in the modern era, those parameters are softening….

The newest CBSN Originals documentary, “Non-Monogamy,” highlights individuals engaging in various forms of consensual non-monogamy including polyamory, a triad monogamous relationship, a polyfidelitous closed quad, and a committed couple dating outside of their marriage. As Dr. Elisabeth Sheff puts it, “I think of it almost like a menu, a relationship menu, and that serial monogamy is at the top of the menu, and probably the most popular dish that people order, but there’s all these other things that people can order now, and they are.”

Sheff calls herself (itself?) “one of a handful of global academic experts on polyamory”.

The CBS digital-streaming special included a 22-minute documentary of interviews with people in openly non-monogamous relationships. The documentary is followed by interviews with a pro-polyamory researcher and a pro-polyamory lawyer. The people in openly non-monogamous relationships who were interviewed include:

  • A man identified as Alex, in an “open marriage” with his wife Bridget of just one year, told CBSN: “The way our parents were brought up, monogamy felt like it was necessary. It was just the way culture accepted you, it is the way everybody accepted you. Now, things are different, things are opening up.” Alex and Bridget both have outside sexual partners.
  • Husband and wife C.J. and Brandi, who have a “triad monogamous relationship” with Brooke. “Triad monogamous” is an oxymoron because the very definition of “monogamy” precludes a threesome. Brandi said that “with three people it makes it a little bit easier to get those [sexual] needs fulfilled.” Brandi and Brooke don’t have sex with each other, which means that the purpose of the threesome is to “fulfill” the “sexual needs” of the man, C.J.
  • A man called Mahdi, in a “triad” with two women, said “I had to divorce my first partner because my second partner had immigration status issues” and that he is in a relationship with both of them. Mahdi complained that he lost his health insurance since he divorced his first wife.

According to The Daily Caller, “CBS is just the latest major media company to promote polyamory.”

Other major outlets promoting polyamory include:

  • The New York Times: In August, NYT published a feature piece titled “Polyamory Works for Them,” describing monogamy as “a curious stalwart” and that more and more young people are rejecting its “blandness.” In an Oct. 2 article on marriages involving members of polyamorous relationships, NYT said “People are becoming more curious about consensual non-monogamy.”
  • ABC News, in an Oct. 24 article, pronounced actor Nico Tortorella’s open marriage as “redefining what it means to be ‘husband and wife.’”
  • Not surprisingly, CNN appears to be the first major media outlet to promote polyamory. In an October 26, 2013 essay titled “Polyamory: When three isn’t a crowd,” reporter (((Emmanuela Grinberg))) highlighted an Atlanta, Georgia threesome — husband-wife Billy and Melissa Holder and “the couple’s partner” Jeremy Mullins — who were marching and passing out fliers promoting polyamory at the Atlanta Pride Parade. Marching with the threesome were 12 other “polyamorous” people.
