You Want Credentials, or Do You Want the Truth?!

Heather Mac Donald has degrees from Yale, Cambridge, and Stanford, and yet her career and reputation are based on years of lying on behalf of the New York City Police Department, in support of its fakestats strategy. Mac Donald has lied so much that her credibility is shot.

Charles Murray has a bachelor’s degree from Harvard, and a Ph.D. from MIT, and yet he not only confessed, but bragged about having lied in The Bell Curve about the percentage to which IQ is genetically heritable.

Richard Herrnstein either lied in The Bell Curve, or Charles Murray lied for him (Herrnstein was dying, at the time, of the Big C).

Herrnstein and James Q. Wilson both lied in Crime and Human Nature, in asserting that the black crime rate shot up during the 1960s and ‘70s, in response to “racism.”

I’m not saying to disregard everything Murray, or Herrnstein, or Wilson ever wrote. Some of their work is precious to me.

But you know that Latin saying, Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus; “false in one thing, false in everything”?

It won’t work, because it would preclude believing any research by anyone with the “proper credentials.”

When I approach famous researchers, I see two types: part-time liars, and the full-time kind. I have to separate the one from the other, and then separate the wheat from the chaff in the cases of part-time liars.

Why would a world-class scholar tell stupid, obvious lies? I can only speculate that these mooks think of themselves as comprising some sort of aristocratic inner circle, such that they are privileged to tell the occasional whopper, and that their aristocratic status somehow redeems their lies.

Well, I’m a high school dropout with a GED, and I’ll meet their Harvard Ph.D.s with my New York State GED and a lifetime as an auto-didact anytime. Plus, I’ll raise them with Nana. My Hungarian-born Nana, Mrs. Fanny Frank Simpkins (1893-1976), risked her job, as deputy registrar of the City of Long Beach, N.Y., blowing the whistle on her crooked boss, who was stealing from the taxpayers. Nana also stood up to the thugs in our neighborhood, when it started going downhill.

Whatever bit of strength and courage I have, I derived from Nana.

I’m a world-class “Hobart engineer” (restaurant dishwasher); I’m also a world-class researcher, and the last New York intellectual. And I’m from the Asphalt League, which used to set the standard for learning in this country.

Yet somehow, in spite of lacking any pedigree, connections, or money, I’ve managed to get hundreds of articles, reports, and reviews, including many a scoop, published by legendary editors.

Please send money, so that I may continue my work.

There are at least two methods for financially supporting me.

One is using Zelle, the other is via VDARE.

P.S.: If you can’t presently afford to make a donation (or even if you can), please forward my blog items to friends and family who might appreciate them, and post links in Internet comment sections. Thanks in advance!

So far, I have signed up for Zelle for fundraising (since the PayPal and Payoneer disasters). If you have any other suggestions, please leave them at the bottom. Thanks, in advance.


Get started by enrolling your email or U.S. mobile number through your mobile banking app or with the Zelle app. This is the Zelle access URL through Chase:


Enter the preferred email address or U.S. mobile number of the recipient. You can send money to almost anyone you know and trust with a bank account in the U.S.

[ It will say, “Registered as Louis.” Louis is my first name; it’s the family curse, among manchildren. ‘Louis begat Louis begat Louis...’]


Enter the amount to send. Your recipient (i.e., moi) gets a notification explaining how to complete the payment, simply and quickly.

Second, through VDARE:

Hit this link to VDARE’s donate page.

At the donate page, hit the circle saying “Earmark your donation.” That will open up a list of writers. I’m third on the list.

Donations made through VDARE are tax-deductible.

Let me know if you have any problems.

I thank you, and your posterity will, too.
