Good Guys and Bad Guys

My friend Keith Preston recently quoted me in a Facebook post:

There are no good guys. There are bad guys and worse guys, and that’s it.

-Robert Lindsay

I hate to blow my own horn here, but you know what? I really like that quote. I am quite proud of myself actually. It’s really sad, but if I have learned one single damn thing in 57 years, it’s summed up in that quote above.

Besides that, what do you folks think of that profoundly cynical quote? Agree or disagree?

Praise for Beyond Highbrow

Here is an example of the some of the praise I have gotten around the Net. I don’t have only haters, you know.

First, on the non-Bigfoot stuff:

Lindsay is an indie version of Michael Moore or John Pilger.

RL seems like one of those nonconformist, brilliant, independent thinkers – the kind of people I really admire, and the kind that you *never* see in the MSM.

And now from the Bigfoot Net, where I am most reviled:

Steven Steufert: Re. Robert Lindsay, well, he seems like a cool guy to me, to the extent that I’ve heard him, and discussed things with him via email. He is just a curious guy delving deeply into the Bigfooting rumor mill. He has found some amazing things, even if not all of it is actually true in the end.

He should be commended for the dogged determination he has shown in digging up these things and developing the network of contacts and sources that he has. I say this in reference to his Bigfoot news, not whatever other views he has expressed (to great controversy) on his blog. He has a right to his own personal opinions, and really, whatever they are, they have very little to do with the quality of information in his Bigfoot articles.

Sharon Lee: I am starting to think that maybe we should pay more attention to Robert Lindsay.

Bigfoot Forums: Anyone still willing to state RL is irrelevant and just pulls stuff from his posterior side? The guy has contacts. Never 100% correct, but don’t dismiss his ramblings.

Bigfoot Forums: What is interesting is that this reviled blogger gets so much traction. I visit the blog for the Bigfoot news; I can’t help it. Sadly, I researched a lot of his claims – some I am intimate with personally. It is not all garbage. Inflammatory yes, but interesting how that works. Each raising of the anger bar brings more players out talking.

Keith Preston on Robert Lindsay

He comments here.

If I were a Marxist rather than an anarchist, Id probably be Robert Lindsay

– Keith Preston

Haha, I love it. Preston is a pretty big name. I think he even has a Wikipedia page but I am not sure. I know the SPLC hates him, so that means he is probably ok haha.

New Interview with Me Up

I just did a new interview with Robert Stark. I think you will like it. It goes over a lot of pretty important subjects. The sound quality should be much better on this one. Stark now does interviews straight over the phone. The sound quality is much better than it was with Skype. The poor sound quality of previous interviews was entirely the fault of Skype.

Here are the topics:

  • Why Robert stands with Putin
  • Why much of the Hard Left Is with Putin
  • Why Robert does not view Putin as an imperialist
  • Russia as a bulwark against American imperialism
  • How the US is selective in its support for separatist movements
  • Oligarchs and how income inequality has reduced under Putin
  • How Robert views Putin as being in between a Russian Nationalist and an Atlantic Integrationist
  • Some Ridiculous Anti-Russian Arguments
  • The lie that Russia has no allies in the former East Bloc or in the former USSR
  • The Jewish view toward Russia
  • The geographical history of the Ukraine
  • The Ukrainian Regime’s Nazi Policies
  • Russia’s alliance with Syria and Iran
  • The Project for a New American Century
  • How Robert views America and Israel as one monolithic country
  • Robert’s assistance to the Israeli organization DEBKA
  • How Robert’s Beyond Highbrow leaked the picture of the dead Israeli soldier
  • The recent Israeli conflict in Gaza and why Robert basically takes a neutral stance
  • Sunni vs. Shia Islam
  • The Lebanese Civil War
  • The Arab Baathist Party
  • Why Robert is willing to ally himself with fascists against American imperialism
  • Why the Progressive Project is the assimilation of the Jews from the ghetto
  • Patrilineality and the tribal instinct to sleep with women of other groups while safeguarding your own
  • Roissy’s Stupid PUA Site and how unregulated sexuality mirrors right wing economics

Beyond Highbrow Scores Again

1st Lt. Hadar Goldin, taken POW by Hamas today. This is one of the first photos of him published by a news source. Photo was very hard to find.

1st Lt. Hadar Goldin, taken POW by Hamas today. This is one of the first photos of him published by a news source. Photo was very hard to find.

This photo of the now famous Hadar Goldin was published on this site before it was published on any other news site. It was very hard to find. After a lot of snooping around, I finally found it on some obscure Facebook page. Very soon after I published it, the excellent Israeli site Debka published it too. Debka was the first large news site to publish it other than this measly blog. I then went to sleep, satisfied with having scooped the whole damn world. When I woke up, I went online. There was that photo I had dredged up, appearing on sites all over the Net, mostly Israeli sites.

Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hooray for Beyond Highbrow!

You guys wonder why you even read this site. Beyond Highbrow scoops the whole damn world, dammit! Get with the program. Read Beyond Highbrow today. Better yet, make a donation. Wink wink.

Abstract of an Upcoming Publication of Mine

The following is an abstract of a long paper that will be published in one of three or four books of the series The Handbook of Endangered Turkic Languages which will be published in late September by the Turkish-Kazakh Joint University in Ankara, Turkey. The article is 88 pages along and is one of the most important articles in the series. I will also be the official English editor for all of the English articles in the series which total ~500 pages.

Mutual Intelligibility Among the Turkic Languages

By Robert Lindsay

Abstract: The Turkic family of languages with all important related dialects was analyzed on the basis of mutual intelligibility, with the following goals: (1) To determine the extent to which various Turkic lects can understand each other. (2) To ascertain whether various Turkic lects are better characterized as full languages in the own right in need of ISO codes from SIL or rather as dialects of another language. (3) The history of various Turkic lects was analyzed in an attempt to write a proper history of the important lects. (4) An attempt was made at classifying the Turkic languages in terms of subfamilies, sub-sub families, etc.

The results were: (1) Rough intelligibility figures for various Turkic lects, related lects and Turkish itself were determined. Surprisingly, it was not difficult to arrive at these rough estimates. (2) The Turkic family was expanded from Ethnologue‘s 41 languages to 53 languages. (3) Full and detailed histories for many Turkic lects were written up in a coherent, easy to understand way, a task sorely needed in Turkic as histories of Turkic lects are often confused, inaccurate, controversial, and incomplete. (4) A new classification of Turkic is proposed that rejects and rewrites some of the better-known classifications.

Traffic Report on Robert Lindsay

Steve writes:

Give us a breakdown. Is it spread out quite evenly over a large number of articles found by Google search? Are there a small number of articles that get most hits? How many hits does each new post get? How does it breakdown by topic? Etc. this would be interesting to know.

Most hits come in from search engines.

Big popular posts are:

Home Page

Bigfoot posts

How Can You Tell If a Man is Gay or Not? (very popular!)

Porn Star Assaulted on Set

What Race Were the Ancient Egyptians?

Max Hardcore Scene from the Movie Hardcore

More on the Hardest Languages to Learn – Indo-European

Do the Races Smell Different?

The Myth of Male Heterosexual HIV

The most popular topics seem to be posts about porn, race realism, racial phenotypes, racial history, linguistics, male heterosexual HIV, and male homosexuality.

It is hard to say how many hits each new post gets because I do not check. Some might not get a lot of reads. 80% of hits are to specific posts other than the homepage.

There are no big sites that bring in most of the hits. The only big winner in that regard is the homepage.

108,000 Unique Visitors a Month

That is what I am getting lately. All of the moronic Bigfoot haters over at Randy’s blog have been insisting forever now that my traffic was going to die down to zero with the death of the Rick Dyer story. It’s not true. Traffic is going very well. 108,000/month is considered to be excellent traffic. I believe it also puts me in the Top 1% of all webpages. That is, I get more traffic than 99% of webpages out there.

Robert Stark Interviews Bay Area Guy


Bay Area guy is a longtime poster here who has since gone on with Dota, another longtime poster here, to form their own blog called Occident Invicta. Old-time commenters like Beatrix, Cyrus and Tulio remember BAG well. Occident Invicta is a nice blog, but it’s coming from a more conservative or Alt Right point of view than I am. Perhaps that is why it was better for them to go off and form their own blog as they were always among the more rightwing commenters on here.

On the other hand, what is quite shocking even from the POV of a Leftist is how often Alt Right types like Dota and BAG are simply, well, correct. Just because someone is rightwing doesn’t mean they are wrong. I do not think anyone should be doctrinaire. Go down the list of all the major issues and see which side you believe in, the Left, the Right, or the Center. Nowadays in order to be “on the Left,” you have to go down a list of 500 issues and check the Left position on each one. If you check Left on 499 and Right on one, you’re a fascist, a conservative, a Republican, a rightwinger, etc.

I don’t think either side has a monopoly on Truth. And this is in part why I dislike labels. If you call yourself liberal or conservative, you need to go down the lists and check either liberal or conservative next to each issue otherwise you get thrown out of the cult.

Anyway, BAG is always an interesting interviewee, so you might want to check it out.

Robert Lindsay Exclusive: John Titor Returns!

John Titor was a legendary and world-famous time traveler who came to us from the year 2036. He arrived with us in the year 1997 and he stayed with us until 2001, when he went back to the future. During this time, John answered many questions about life in the future and made many predictions about what would happen in the next 10-15 years. He spent a lot of his time on the forums of the Art Bell show when there were many radio shows dedicated to the John Titor phenomenon.

But the great news is…he is back!

Folks, I cannot believe my good luck. The real John Titor,  has now established contact with me. Is he the real John or is he one of the fake John Titors? He told me that there have been many fake John Titors since he went back to the future, but he is not fake, and he is the original John Titor coming back for the first time since he left in 2001!

Below, John tells us that he has only been back from the future since June 4 of this year, when he returned to us for the first time since he left in 2001. On June 6, he set up his Facebook page, which appears to be legitimate.

John left me a message to give to all of you, and he will be taking questions on the blog, if you have any questions for him.

John Titor speaks:

John Titor: Hello, I can be contacted here on my Facebook page for now. If you have any questions I might be able to answer them. I am working on a series of steps to complete my mission.

Robert Lindsay: Were you the same John Titor who came to my blog recently?

John Titor: No, I have not been to any blog. The last time I posted on the internet besides this Facebook page was in 2001. I returned June 4th of 2014 and created this Facebook page on June 6th.

Robert Lindsay: Ohhh ok. Why did you contact me of all people?

John Titor: As you may know, back in 2001 there were also a lot of people on the forum claiming to be me. I am the real John Titor from 1997 to 2001.

Robert Lindsay: Ahh great! Glad to see you back!

John Titor: Noticed your blog and just wanted to “clear” things up a little bit. Let me know if you have any questions. I am working on the GUT (Grand Unified Theory) right now and will be posting more on Time Travel on this Facebook page as well as what will occur in the future. There recently was an assassination attempt by Pakistanis a few weeks ago. I posted right after it occurred that this assassination will also be linked partially to events that will unfold in August. As you may also know, Chechen and Iranian terrorism will increase throughout Europe and America; the Boston Marathon bombing was just a glimpse of what the future holds.

Robert Lindsay:  If I make a post about you, would you come to my blog and answer some questions in the comments section?

Robert Lindsay: Ahh great! Glad to see you back!

John Titor: Yes. Just send me the link and I will answer them the best I can. I do not have the answer to everything…I am only human just like yourself but I am willing to answer questions right now while I am around.

Commenters, John will be answering questions in the Comments section of this post for as long as people are willing to ask them. So if you can think of any questions you want to ask John about any time in the future between tomorrow and 2036, fire away. Keep in mind that John returned to the future in 2001 went he went back to the future, to the year 2036.

This is so exciting! I can hardly contain my excitement. Of all the people on Earth to choose, John Titor chose me and my blog to announce his return to us! Wow! Ladies and gentlement, I present to you – the one and only – John Titor!

He is back!
