Still More Fake Science

107 cancer papers retracted due to peer review fraud
New papers were found through investigations into previous fraud.


"The journal Tumor Biology is retracting 107 research papers after discovering that the authors faked the peer review process. This isn’t the journal’s first rodeo. Late last year, 58 papers were retracted from seven different journals— 25 came from Tumor Biology for the same reason.

It’s possible to fake peer review because authors are often asked to suggest potential reviewers for their own papers. This is done because research subjects are often blindingly niche; a researcher working in a sub-sub-field may be more aware than the journal editor of who is best-placed to assess the work.

But some journals go further and request, or allow, authors to submit the contact details of these potential reviewers. If the editor isn’t aware of the potential for a scam, they then merrily send the requests for review out to fake e-mail addresses, often using the names of actual researchers. And at the other end of the fake e-mail address is someone who’s in on the game and happy to send in a friendly review."

The racists march through the institutions:
Senior Lawyers Demand ‘Difficult and Unpopular’ Actions to Replace White Males in Judiciary


"The all-party group said “positive action” must be taken to increase the share of women and ethnic minorities in the judiciary, stating: “‘Merit’ can all too easily become a vehicle for unconscious bias.”

[...]

"Noting the majority of supreme court judges will be replaced over the next three years, Coomber said there is now an “unprecedented opportunity” to “change swiftly the demographic composition of [Britain’s] senior judiciary”.

Justice recommends setting ambitious “targets with teeth” for courts deemed to lack sufficient numbers of women or ethnic minorities, the “teeth” meaning that there would be obligations to monitor and report on progress.

The report said: “If there is persistent failure to meet targets over the next decade, strong consideration should be given to introducing quotas.

“Structural change – not tinkering – is required if the complexion of the bench is to really change.”"
When merit is considered as the criterion, it works against the inferiors. So the inferiors insist that merit is evil. What is needed is inferior judges, because: skin color; crotch furniture.

White guys need to identify as black-hispanic, gender-squishy, trans-Muslims, genetically-impaired Marxists. The Left couldn't argue with that.

Perez: Harshing Mello

Dems unlearn their own electoral history in telling pro-lifers to drop dead

"Tom Perez's excommunication of pro-life candidates from his party implies that the winning strategy won't be used again. The tent is now closed, and smaller than it was before. The remaining Democratic voters who had fooled themselves up to now in order to help their ancestral party are being spat upon, a sign that party elders have learned neither from own recent electoral experience in 2006, nor from their soul-crushing loss in the 2016 election."

Mello Dramatic at the DNC

Nebraska isn't usually a pin on the map of political hotspots, but that all changed this week with Omaha's candidates for mayor. Thanks to Heath Mello's (D) pro-life views, a race that would have been a footnote in the national news has exploded into a front-page headline about the DNC's hard ideological line on abortion.
Is the party of slavery, the KKK, Racial Segregation, and abortion / Planned Parenthood finally marginalized to the point of no return? I'm not betting on it - Marxist class bigotry is still rampant, and the new KKK (antifa) is still not conquered.

On the Existence of a “Tropical Hot Spot” & The Validity of
EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding

Abridged Research Report
Second Edition, April 2017


https://thsresearch.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/ef-data-research-report-second-editionfinal041717-1.pdf

"A just released peer reviewed Climate Science Research Report
has proven that it is all but certain that EPA’s basic claim that CO2
is a pollutant is totally false
. All research was done pro bono.
This research failed to find that the steadily rising Atmospheric
CO2 Concentrations have had a statistically significant impact on
any of the 14 temperature data sets
that were analyzed. The
tropospheric and surface temperature data measurements that were
analyzed were taken by many different entities using balloons,
satellites, buoys and various land based techniques.
Needless to say,
if regardless of data source, the analysis results are the same, the
analysis findings should be considered highly credible.

The analysis results invalidate EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding,
including the climate models that EPA has claimed can be relied
upon
for policy analysis purposes. Moreover, these research
results clearly demonstrate that once the solar, volcanic and
oceanic activity, that is, natural factor, impacts on temperature
data are accounted for, there is no “record setting” warming to be
concerned about. In fact, there is no Natural Factor Adjusted
Warming at all.
The authors of this report claim that there is no
published, peer reviewed, statistically valid proof that past
increases in atmospheric CO2 concentrations have caused the
officially reported rising, even claimed record setting
temperatures. And, EPA’s Climate Models fail to meet this test.

[Emphasis added]

Science-Speak For "The Predictions Didn't Work Out So Well, So We're Changing Them"

Anthropogenic impact on Antarctic surface mass balance, currently masked by natural variability, to emerge by mid-century
So the ice mass didn't change out of original stasis expectations, i.e., within normal min/max expectations for non-warming. But we know - KNOW - that by 2050 it will finally leave that normal range. Another 33 years ought to do it. Yep. We'll all be retired by then, sipping Mai Tais on the beach and won't give a shit whether this prediction fails or not. Gotta love a job with absolutely NO consequences for abject failure. In fact, abject failure just produces another paper for our CV portfolio.

BTW: this is explicit proof that the models do NOT reflect actual nature: the "Natural Variations" buried the "signal" so that the signal could not be found. That is their excuse for the admitted "discrepancy between models and observations" required an explanation, which they conveniently had at hand.

BTW #2: This is why the sea level is NOT rising as predicted. The snowfall and new ice at the Antarctic keeps the water out of the oceans.

Too bad that the "thousands of climate scientists" didn't pick up on this in their models, isn't it.

Not Woke to the Evils of White Skin? Here's Help For You

Believing that their own success depends upon removing success from white people, the unabated march of anti-white racists rolls on. Now you can learn how to be "Not-Racist" about removing opportunities from whites, for your own benefit. Here's the place to be:
Got privilege? Kansas City preparing to host the national White Privilege Conference
Repeat: it is NOT RACISSSSS for minorities to plot against whites, to take away what they've got, and to rail against skin color.
NO.no.NOOO.
Only whites can be RACISSSS, and that's because they are white. They are born bad. If you need that point cleared up, then this is the place for you to be re-educated.

And here's the group to re-educate you:
The Privilege Institute

Disclaimer: If you are white and show up, that doesn't relieve you of your evil skin color privilege. Just so you know.

Give This Video a Chance

IGNORE THE TITLE: the title is prejudicial. This is a video of discovery, from the Kenyan perspective.

Cause and Effect... and Reversion to the Mean

Cause:
Students who avoid making eye contact could be guilty of racism, Oxford University says
Effect:
Gen Z ridicules Leftist teachers: How the Left Blew their Entire Racist Load
Has the pendulum reached peak Leftism?
Have We Already Reached Peak Leftism?

"In short, the bad news for us is that the Left dominates the cultural high ground. The good news is that they’ve gone about as far as they can go.

Those 90-95 percent levels of ideological uniformity are as high as you can achieve without the actual imposition of censorship. Indeed, within these fields, you can often observe some of the psychology of a dictatorship: a cloying groupthink in which ideological enforcers police the slightest deviation and dissenters feel that they have to hide their true views if they want to keep their jobs. But without the ability to use actual force to suppress dissenters, the Left cannot go any farther.

Yet you can see why the Left would like to get rid of those last few holdouts, because they provide the germ for a resurgence of heretical views. And that is what should absolutely terrify the Left: the prospect of reversion to the mean."
Personally, I am encouraged by the great millenial battle at Berkeley. There appear to be enough free speech advocates amongst millennials that they more than balanced the Antifa - Democrats' KKK of the 21st century - and gave them an embarrassing thumping and rout. This is not the stuff of cultural change, of course, but it is an indicator that the entire millennial generation was not captured by education's Leftist indoctrination. And perhaps GenZ is a further glimmer of hope.

Perhaps the largest Leftist internal non-coherence breaks the spell for rational people: the Left insists on a world that is non-racist, and then tells whites that they are genetically racist. This is eliminationist on its face, and too far into the muck to be redeemed. By declaring war on whites, the Left has withdrawn into a minority position. Even though there are obviously some white SJWs who are against whites, many of the non-white minorities will see the totalitarian viciousness of this (final) race war by the Democrat/Leftist Marxists.

It's still a most interesting time to be alive... and awake, not woke.

The March For Science - All You Need To Know

Advocates fan out in global show of support for science
The second sentence contains these words: Michael Mann. Here's the scoop on Michael Mann:
A Disgrace to the Profession: the World Scientists, on Michael Mann, his Hockey Stick, and Their Damage to Science
Here's a little more info:
The March for ... What?
And just remember this: NO one sees Michael Mann's data, but Michael Mann. NO ONE.

The human essence of Fraud is asserting his phony god: Science, in which he does not even believe.

Leftist Proxy Murder

University Art Exhibit Features Painting of Captain America Holding President Trump's Decapitated Head

"Painting Professor Thomas Chung created and presented the piece as part of a faculty art program, KTUU reported.

Chung said he chose to paint the scene because he was upset at the results of the 2016 election.

"I spent days just weeping," he told the station, adding that he was surprised at his own reaction because he is not a "political person."


The Murder instinct is strong in the weeping Left.

Filthy Antifa Whore Lies

"Normally, I wouldn’t call someone a Filthy Antifa Whore (FAW). However, since Moldylocks, who was shown getting punched out at this weekend’s Berkeley protests by some dude everyone claims is a fascist/racist/neo-nazi/somethingorother, is a nasty, unwashed, slovenly sow, and since she did, in fact, demonstrate riot, throw bottles, and assault people at a rally for a President whom she apparently does not like, and since there are photos of said skank on the Internet..."
Ok, you gotta go there for the full treatment. She has photos from all angles, as if most folks were there for the photo-fun. FAW, indeed.

We Knew This Before We Even Knew This

Berkeley Mayor Is Member of Antifa Facebook Group that Organized Riots

"Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin is a member of the anti-fascist Facebook group, By Any Means Necessary, which orchestrated the riots that occurred ahead of a scheduled lecture by Milo Yiannopoulos.

Berkley Mayor Jesse Arreguin was revealed to be a member of the anti-fascist group, By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), on Facebook. BAMN orchestrated the violence that shut down a scheduled lecture at UC Berkeley featuring Milo Yiannopoulos in early 2017. Arreguin is allegedly also friends with BAMN leader, Yvette Felarca, on Facebook.

They were also involved in the violent clashes earlier this month.

[...]

BAMN was investigated for engaging in terrorist activities in 2005 by the FBI. In 2009, the Department of Defense classified the group’s activities as “low-level terrorism.” In June 2016, BAMN led a violent counter-protest outside a white nationalist rally that resulted in ten people being hospitalized with stab wounds.

Often described as a “militant left-wing” activist group, BAMN frequently engages in violent forms of protests. A Berkeley newspaper noted in 2001 that the group was a front for an “an obscure Detroit-based Trotskyist political party called the Revolutionary Workers League.”
