Code Of Conduct

I have a code of conduct for people who appear on my Youtube channel.

* I regard the internet as part of the real world and thus real world rules apply to my show. Don’t say things on the stream or in the chat or in comments that you wouldn’t say face to face.

* Abide at all times by Youtube’s TOS and community guidelines.

* Don’t swear. The following words should never be uttered on my channel: n*gger, k*ke, c*nt, f*g. I’d be happy to never hear f*ck or sh*t.

* Don’t interrupt.

* Don’t describe races or religions or ethnicities as sub-human. Don’t describe such groups with slurs such as animals or parasites or crooks or thieves or criminals. Don’t demean entire races and religions. Don’t diminish. Don’t tarnish.

* Don’t encourage violence or criminal behavior.

* Don’t be rude. Don’t harass. Don’t threaten.

* Don’t doxx.

* Don’t encourage reporting of people for TOS violations or tax violations or copyright violations, etc.

* Don’t feud. Don’t pick needless fights. Don’t go to war with other Youtube personalities.

* Don’t use psychology as a weapon. Don’t diagnose people with personality disorders. Don’t call anyone crazy.

* Don’t encourage economic warfare. Don’t try to ruin anyone’s business. Don’t try to ruin anyone’s life. Don’t try to get anyone fired.

* Avoid ad hominem attacks. Don’t libel. Don’t accuse people of criminal behavior unless you can point to clear evidence.

* Don’t fling slurs. Name-calling is not an argument. Laughter is not an argument.

* Don’t attack motives.

* The only honorable arguments are disputing an opponent’s facts and logic.

* Don’t make lewd comments to women on the show.

* When in doubt, act like you are in church or synagogue.

* Different types of discussions have different rules. A comedic show has looser rules than a serious show.

* I treat everyone differently. I treat women different from men, aristocrats different from proles, comics different from the irony-free, people of stature different from losers.

* People who make me unhappy don’t get invited back.

* My tradition teaches a message of radical inclusion and love. Will you sit down and learn Torah with me, and learn love?

Taleb extolls value of middle eastern society and defends inbreeding:


Invented Metallurgy, Agriculture, Writing, Sailing, the Wheel, Chemisty, Pharma, Astronomy, LAW,(co)algebra, Algor, Calendar, Maps, Metrics…

Maintained techno superiority for 4600/5000y of history.

So fraudster @stefanmolyneux now arbiter of their inferior “IQ”.
This inbreading/cousin marriage theory is another crackpot by IQ-genes-race pple who NEED to find genetic (not cultural) degradation.

First effect of inbreeding is systematic diseases. & you see MORE among Ashkenazis so stop the IQ link & crank-science.

Gregory Cochran reviews population genetic principles for Taleb:
Common deleterious recessives: info for Taleb.
Most deleterious mutations are rare, haven’t been around for long. If you marry your first cousin, the odds of a kid being a homozygote for some such go way up, since the cousin has a fair chance of sharing that rare mutation. On the other hand, if the mutation is common in your population, due to chance or selection, your children have a noticeable risk for being homozygotes even when you and your mate are not closely related. In other words, Tay-Sachs in Ashkenazi Jews is not a product of inbreeding.
Since the average person has many rare deleterious mutations, with effects ranging from lethal to being a little subpar, children of such consanguineous unions have a spectrum of problems, ranging instant death ( rare) to ” not very healthy”, not so rare. On average, kids of first cousins seem to have have about twice as many serious genetic problems, average about 5 iq points lower & 0.7 cm shorter.
Where is inbreeding a problem? Much of the Moslem world.

Vox: “Louis C.K. and Aziz Ansari have an opportunity for redemption. They’re squandering it.”

Fellow comedian Aziz Ansari has followed a similar trajectory. He once decried sexual harassment in his act — and addressed the issue in a nuanced way on his show Master of None. But in 2017, a woman told the website that he had pressured her for sex — Ansari said he had believed everything that happened between them was “completely consensual,” and that he was “surprised and concerned” by her account. After the incident, his comedy took on a different tone: In a fall 2018 appearance, he made fun of online debates about cultural appropriation and complained that nowadays, “everyone weighs in on everything,” according to the New Yorker.

The bigotry in C.K.’s set is disturbing, especially coming from someone who seemed at one time to have a relatively clear understanding of how power works in America. But what is also striking about C.K. and Ansari’s post-#MeToo material is its banality. Before they were publicly accused, these men wrestled with thorny questions of identity and power in ways that, while not always satisfying, were usually thought-provoking. After the allegations, they began parroting tired complaints about political correctness.

Trump suggests he will declare a state of emergency to build wall:

Asked if he would make such a declaration, an action that would likely face legal challenges, Mr. Trump said: “If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”

Steve Sailer tweets on Nixon vs JFK:

The 1960 election was informative in that it matched Nixon with his 143 IQ and work ethic but not much else going for him, against JFK with his 119 IQ but good looks, wealth, family connections, beautiful wife, wit, and media bias.

The race turned out to be virtually a tie.

Cochran explains that genetic diversity does not imply highest performance at extremes:

Well, David Reich is mistaken in that. What matters is the distribution of alleles influencing the trait in question. Thoroughbreds, for example, have limited genetic diversity. Effective pop size is only 100. Other breeds have more – but Thoroughbreds are the fastest.

Tucker Carlson & The Left-Right Convergence

* Trump says emergency declaration coming without border deal with Dems

* Trump won the night. Schumer and Pelosi lost.

* Donald Trump on negotiations with Democrats: “Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!”

* Prediction market now implies odds of 68% that government shutdown lasts at least until January 18

* Anti-Semitic Terrorist Supporter Silenced American Journalist

* What Tucker Carlson Gets Right

* Tucker Carlson quotes Elizabeth Warren on low birth rates:

“If middle class men and women stop making that parental lifestyle choice, who will care for them in their old age? Who will pay taxes, build infrastructure, and keep the economy afloat? Most importantly, who will populate the great middle class of America’s future?” — Again, and we can’t say this enough, Elizabeth Warren wrote that! Not in 1936, but in 2003!

* Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO worth $137 billion, to divorce wife of 25 years:

“Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie are divorcing after 25 years of marriage, the AmazonCEO and Washington Post owner has announced, potentially leading to the costliest divorce settlement in history with $137 billion at stake.

The split could lead the costliest divorce is history, even if the couple doesn’t divide the money equally. There are no reports indicating the couple has a prenuptial agreement, meaning the wealth accumulated during their marriage would have to be split evenly.”

* Steve Sailer says: We keep getting told that Trump is a harbinger of Fascism, but, in reality, the Trump Era is Peak Democracy:
– The public is now fascinated by politics
– The midterms saw huge turnout
– Newspapers, improbably, are prospering, because Trump Sells
– Trump’s enemies, such as Jeff Bezos (owner of the Washington Post), are thriving beyond the dreams of Croesus
– Saturday Night Live dares to make fun of the President for the first time since 1/19/2009

* Australians Have More Fun

* Patreon Games

* Tim Newman: Corporate Punishment

* Virginia Woolf? Snob! Richard Wright? Sexist! Dostoyevsky? Anti-Semite!

Silent Bob Has Gone Viral

Bob has been a regular on my Youtube show the past three weeks. Today he went viral attacking Jenna Jameson, driving her from Twitter.

USA Today:

Jenna Jameson quits Twitter after being attacked for her Jewish faith, adult film past

Jenna Jameson says she’s “taking an indefinite break” from Twitter after being attacked for her past and religion.

The former adult film star, 44, took to the social media site Wednesday to share the news with her followers in a series of tweets.

“Alright I’m taking an indefinite break from Twitter,” she said. “It’s near impossible to just have normal conversations without hundreds of people attacking me for the past I cannot change.”

She continued, “I want to clarify why I’m leaving. My sobriety and faith are the most important things to me. I am being attacked for my faith. Being Jewish. I must protect my love for G-d above everything, my sobriety and strength stem from him and his grace.”

The decision appears to follow hateful comments in which an Internet troll suggested Jameson would go to hell for being “conservative” and Jewish.

“Yep you check out, enjoy your stay,” the Twitter user added along with a fiery depiction of hell.

Jameson clapped back at the comment, retweeting it with a response.

“So what you’re saying is no one can out grow their pst (sic) and become better?…” she said.

Earlier this month, Jameson made headlines for her 80-pound weight loss, which she said was motivated by her infant daughter.
