An Open Plea For One Single Honest Academic
We must hold the American Journal of Political Science to account
This is a short article, because this a simple request.
3 months ago I exposed Ryan Enos, a tenured professor in the Harvard department of government, as being a complete and total fraud. He fabricated data and this is one of the worst data fabrication scandals of the decade. He is worse than Michael LaCour!
Here is the smoking gun document.
Harvard had this document for years.
Harvard suppressed it.
It is as smoking gun as you can possibly get in academia and data science. The R code is straightforward. Enos manipulated his observations to make it seem like different races are afraid of each other. This is a seminal paper in the sub-field of “racial threat theory”… and it it 100% fraudulent. Enos manipulated his observations to racebait and stoke racial tensions! Enos' inflammatory anti-white rhetoric based on fabricated data contributes to crimes like the one perpetrated in the Seth Smith case.
This Enos fraud case is already proven dead to rights — Enos should be fired and have his tenure stripped in shame, but the American Journal of Political Science (AJPS) is refusing to investigate on the grounds that I do not have a PhD?! Therefore, I do not have grounds to submit a complaint?! They are adamant about this. They won’t accept my pleb complaint.
Does this make sense to you? Do journals normally refuse to accept ethical complaints unless the complainant has a PhD? Of course not — that would be insane! Normally, journals are even required to accept credible anonymous complaints. So this “we only accept complaints from PhD holders” line is a totally made up rule because they know if they investigate Enos, they will have no choice but to find him guilty. So they are obfuscating.
I know for a fact that hundreds of Karlstack readers have PhDs, though, and I know for a fact that AJPS will be formally obligated to investigate your complaint if you have a PhD in economics, political science, sociology, computer science, data science, statistics etc. Of the hundreds of PhDs reading this article, I need just one of you to stand up and to be brave enough, and an entire corrupt house of cards in the Harvard mafia will fall. Tenure was made for moments like this. Stand up for academic integrity. Stand up against Harvard’s blatant corruption.
Here are 8 email addresses for key contacts at the AJPS. If you have tenure, you have no excuse not to email them and submit a complaint. All it will take is 1 polite email from 1 brave man with the smoking gun pdf attached. Who is going to step up? Anyone? Can anyone with a PhD restore my faith in meritocracy, justice, academia and humanity? If you don’t do it for me, do it for the academy.

I have a PhD in medicinal chemistry and have published several papers using R code, and have a lot of background in bio informatics. I am the CSO of a small biotech.
I will happily do this on Tues when everyone is back to the office. I would also recommend getting in touch with retraction watch
Frauds like this really need to end in a scientists disgrace. Science is 100% about trust, anyone can jumble random numbers around to get significant p values, and prove any dumbass hypothesis they pull out of the woke-beast's multitude of buttholes. Poly sci is soft enough to have fucking straight up fabrication.
Even better, I'm white, my wife is black, our children our mixed, so I even have woke cred and the can't attack me for racism.
Every time I get CV from an ivy leaguer with no real world work experience, I throw it in the garbage where it belongs. The point of school is to learn how to think, not what to think.
Here's hoping someone steps up. My guess though is that their next dodge will be "it has to be a PhD in the discipline." Then "it has to be a PhD in the discipline who's a subject matter expert in the relevant field."
