More Durocher, 8/4/19

Further exposing the dishonest fraud.

 

Following up on my earlier post from today, let’s consider more about Durocher.  Laughably, Durocher is so excited about admixture in Southern Europe that he cannot even write a coherent English sentence:

This is in line with other studies finding their Europeans in the far south tend to be closer genetically to their North African or Middle-Eastern neighbors.

That can be interpreted in two different ways.  First, it can mean that if one were to compare Northern, Eastern, and Southern Europeans to North Africans and Middle Easterners, then the Southern Europeans are going to be “closer genetically” to North Africans and Middle Easterners than Northern or Eastern Europeans are. That’s of course true and expected given clines of gene frequencies (we will for the moment ignore what the results would be if we were to substitute “Siberians and East Asians” for “North Africans and Middle Easterners”).   Second, it can mean that Southern Europeans are “closer genetically to their North African or Middle-Eastern neighbors” than they are to other Europeans, which is of course false, and Durocher must know it is false.  Genetic kinship analysis – unfortunately only performed at this time by private entities because population geneticists ignore such studies – shows it be false, and Fst, which is performed by population geneticists, shows the same.  Unless Durocher believes that Southern Europeans are predominantly North African and Middle Eastern (and I do not believe that even he would have the temerity to push that lie), then obviously it is false.

But there’s more.  The study that Durocher cites was already discussed at this blog, see here (emphasis added).

Note that Germans are being used as the European component representative for the admixture analysis, and despite that, Northern and Central European populations are still getting percentages ascribed to “Saharawi” and “Qatari” components.  Given clinal gene frequencies, it is not surprising that Southern European populations are modeled as having North African and Near Eastern ancestral components compared to Germans, but what to make of, for example, such ancestry in Swedes, Norwegians, Scots, and the Irish?  I presume that Der Movement does not believe that such populations have any modern admixture from North African or Near Eastern sources. Therefore, the findings for those populations are artifacts from the modeling, ancient admixture, or both.  If that is so, then any “real” modern admixture in the Southern European populations has to be whatever small percentages in excess of that found in Northern and Central Europe, and even there, the clinal gene frequency issue has to be considered.  The same principles hold for the modeling in the preprint discussed above.

Durocher is aware of my work and of this blog, and yet he continues to promote his lies.  That tells you what you need to know about his character, or the lack thereof.

See this.The relevant table from the paper was put up as a comment on his own post, but Durocher ignores it. 100% dishonest fraud.

By the way, this blog has already discussed, years ago, the possible political and social implications of greater genetic heterogeneity in Southern Europe; so Durocher trying to imply that such insights are novel on his part is another lie.

Meet the Alt Right

In all cases, emphasis added.

The outrageous insanity, delusion, and lack of judgment of the Right:

“About three months ago,” Johnson begins, “I was talking to Richard Spencer about how we need to plan for a Trump victory.” Spencer is another prominent white nationalist – he heads the generic-sounding National Policy Institute. “I said: ‘I want Jared Taylor [of American Renaissance] as UN Ambassador, and Kevin MacDonald [an evolutionary psychologist] as secretary of health and Ann Coulter as homeland security!’ And Spencer said: ‘Oh Johnson, that’s a pipe dream!’ But today, he’d no longer say that, because if Trump wins, all the establishment Republicans, they’re gone… They hate him! So who’s left? If we can lobby, we can put our people in there.”

MAGA!  Pepe!  Kek!

Never forget – when the Quota Queens were engaging in the most pathetically deranged fantasy-mongering imaginable, I had already, for many months, correctly identified Trump as a fraud and a buffoon.

Speaking of frauds and buffoons:

It’s not every day that a brown journalist gets to sit in on a white-nationalist strategy meeting. 

Hey why not?  You could have invited Dees and Potok as well.  With all the information thus acquired, they could still be there at the SPLC today.  Open the doors to racial enemies; discuss strategy in front of opponents. When there is no accountability, you can do whatever you damn please! Consequences? Consequences? Quota Queens don’t care about no stinkin’ consequences!

But these are strange times. Racism is trending. Like Brexit, Trump has normalised views that were once beyond the pale, and groups like the AFP have grown bold. Their man’s stubby orange fingers are within reach of actual power, so maybe it’s time to emerge from the shadows at last.

Just in time to get elbowed in the face, censored, infiltrated, and deplatformed.

Eric is even more unexpected. Tall and impassioned, he came to racism via hypnotherapy, of all things. He sells solar panels for a living and practises yoga. Together with his friends Matt and Nathan, who are also here at lunch, he runs an alt-right fraternity in Manhattan Beach – “a beer and barbecues thing”. They’re called the Beach Goys. “We’re starting a parody band,” he beams. “We’ve found a drummer!”

Beavis and Butthead snigger in the background.

This is the white nationalist’s burden – the very people they’re trying to save are the ones who most fiercely oppose them.

True.  But then – how does the Left square that with the idea that “White supremacy” and “White privilege” are running rampant?

Identity Evropa – the Alt Right disorganization that Shabbos sud stepandfetchits sacrificed their military careers for:

“Awesome. Great to hear. Cool, so can you tell me a little bit about your heritage?”

Where do I start? “As far as I know, my great-grandfather was from Germany. My great grandparents on my mom’s side were from France, I think. . . So it’s all mostly German and French. And my last name is Argyle, so I’ve definitely got some Scottish in there. So all my relatives are white.”

“Yea. Good stuff. Probably northwest European. When I saw the Brooklyn, New York, I expected some Italian, you know, with the accent and everything.”

Good stuff! Northwest European!  Just like Hermansson!  Why let a little thing like being an anti-racist infiltrator get between a bit of friendly ethnic fetishism?  He’s reproducing your “group’s” failings for all the world to read, but, hey, at least he didn’t have “the accent and everything.” And, apparently, he used his real name during the “vetting” process. Equally apparently, the extreme vetting didn’t include a five second Google search.  And further, apparently, members doing the vetting have no problem joking about low-caste ethnies to prospective members.  After all, if the wogs find out, what are they going to do about it?  They’re too stupid and useless to even recognize how much they are despised, so who cares?. 

So, the whole thing is ironic. Still think that talk about “the ‘movement’s’ affirmative action program” is just paranoid nonsense?   What are the chances that “some Italian, you know, with the accent and everything” could become the leader of IE/AIM?  Even if that person was competent, didn’t have members on Disqus, didn’t do laughably incompetent “vetting,” and didn’t become a laughingstock? Answer: Probability of zero. They are of course welcome to send in their “membership dues” and do low-level scutwork for their betters.  So, the affirmative action program elevates to power incompetents and fetishists, who “vet” transparent infiltrators into meetings (a recurrent theme for the Quota Queens), and the incompetents mock people who probably could do a better job than them if given the chance (not saying much of course, since roadkill could do a better job as well).

Shabbos suds take note. Indeed, the shabbos sud and the shabbos ost stepandfetchits – and Der Movement itself – should carefully consider whether the “movement’s” dishonest treatment of Southern and Eastern European White ethnics is akin to “deceptive advertising” – which for a business entity is legally actionable. Particularly in those cases where “movement” entities take money from people – membership dues, donations, etc. – the analogy to deceptive business practices is clear.  Membership dues come with the expectation that the person giving the dues derives benefits from belonging to the entity they are giving to. If the assumed benefits are actually not true, a deception, that is fraud. If there are no actual benefits, legally it is a contribution, a donation, which can be obtained fraudulently as well. Read carefully, stepandfetchits, read this very carefully.

Is Trump just an idiot, or is he trying to appeal to Der Movement?  Of course, the two possibilities are not mutually exclusive.

Shady Genetics

Disgusting.

Read this.  Emphasis added.

We talked with Morgan, who works for one of the major ancestry testing companies…“I only know of two times somebody wanted to be tested for being another ethnicity because they didn’t like that ethnicity. Both times, [they were] white people not wanting to believe they had black ancestors.” The first of these made an offhand remark that, “‘I’m hoping it will show people I’m not black.’ And not as a joke. He was serious.” The second customer was even less subtle: “He caught himself from saying the N-bomb. He said, ‘I want to know if any of my family are ni- black.’”

On the one hand, I find these stories of Bunker Syndrome customers hard to believe, but I suppose anything is possible.  On the other hand, you know, the ultimate purpose of a business is to provide a product to customers, not to mock those customers in an interview.

Morgan and his colleagues were caught between a rock and a really-want-to-mess-with-racists place. 

Excuse me, ”Morgan,” but get  off your high horse of mewling pathetic SJW-style conformist moral posturing, and try to understand that your role as an employee of a business is not to “mess with” your customers.  If this self-righteous turd believes what he does is so correct, why not name the company he works for?  After all, what’s wrong with “messing with” “racists?”  Be proud!  Own it. Name the company please, so all potential customers know what they are getting into.  Full disclosure of business practices and all that.

It would’ve been fun to throw a “10 percent West African” in there, but then they might have a pissed-off, dangerous person at their office, waving a gun. 

And that, to “Morgan,” is the only reason not to invent results out of thin air – his fears for his personal safety. With attitudes like this extant within testing companies, what confidence can we have in the scientific integrity of the results?  They may not add “10%” findings, but what about putting their thumb on the scale to “adjust” results?  Oh wait…

“Since we couldn’t do anything to the results (and we wanted to), what we did was add ‘[less than] 1 percent’ to each African category of ethnicity. 

So they do exactly that.

That way we weren’t lying, and they would both be wondering how much under a percentage point was. We always try to round to the nearest number because we sometimes hear about percentage points, but for them, we leave it open to whether it’s a one or a zero.”

So, essentially they admit that ~ 1% is statistically equivalent to zero.  That goes along with previous admissions that ~9% admixture levels are close to the threshold at which one can have any confidence that such “admixture” is “real” – and that’s not even getting into the issue of parental populations.

It’s a compromise that’s elegant in its passive-aggressive simplicity. 

Yes, real “elegant” and all.  Once again – since they are so proud of their elegant simplicity, can they simply – and elegantly – name the company that “Morgan” works for?  Inquiring minds want to know.

And it got a result. “The near-N-bomber wrote to us asking what that meant, and we wrote back that it meant it was under 1 percent. And we were not saying zero. Unless they got another test, that was going to bother them. 

Yes, indeed, bothering your customers is what running a business is all about, right?

Maybe they weren’t 100 percent Caucasian. I mean, they were, according to the results, but this way it leaves it open, and they’ll always be wondering.”

We are wondering what company “Morgan” works for. Why be shy?  Tell us, “Morgan.”

More on Theranos

An example of the “wimmin” that post-wall harridan Melinda wants to fund with the money from Rick Moranis-look-a-like Bill.

Read here.  Excerpts and comments:

All of this can be applied to “The Movement.” To be completely frank, there are plenty of frauds and con artists in our scene. 

What website are you writing for again?

In fact, there are probably more sociopaths and swindlers in an edgy sociopolitical set than in America’s business community.[1] Unfortunately, there are very few books dedicated to dissecting and examining “The Movement”’s many dangerous people. 

Well, there’s a blog (not a book) – EGI Notes, but I’m “crazy and bitter.”  The author of this piece is obviously not. Obviously.

However, an examination of a parallel social disaster can be extrapolated to match one’s own circumstances and serve to enlighten one in a way which might lead to progress.

Oh yes, indeed.

Carreyrou’s story of Theranos starts in November 2006 and ends in March 2018. His sources are mostly former employees. Central to the story is a Stanford dropout named Elizabeth Holmes.[3] Holmes was from a prominent family that had been successful in business, as well as in military and government service. She grew up in a high-class neighborhood in Washington, D.C. 

In other words, she is “one of the gals.”  Just like Mudshark Annie.  Indeed, the have some romantic preferences in common, it seems.

Holmes deliberately dressed like Steve Jobs. She also faked a deep voice when speaking (her voice can be heard changing in this video). Her leadership style was typical for a dynamic leader of a start-up company. 

It seems to me her style was more typical of a padded cell, but, hey, I’m crazy, so I should know, right?

Holmes enjoyed a flurry of good press and flattery . . . but the machines didn’t work, hadn’t worked, and weren’t about to start working. It was all an elaborately-constructed fraud. An October 2015 Wall Street Journal article exposed the company. Looking backwards, it is probable that Theranos was a fraud from the start…

I agree, many parallels to Der Movement.

This is the first politically correct aspect of this. All that talk about “girl power” and “strong, independent womynz” is a powerful metapolitical influence that led otherwise experienced men to fund the venture, and for a time stopped anyone from asking hard questions about her.

But when people on the Right question the “womynz” in the Alt Right, they get critiqued by Counter-Currents white-knighting.

As a result of Holmes’ respectable social background…

Anyone in Theranos who questioned the reality of the situation was shown the door. 

Or “banned” from a blog, eh?   How is Der Movement different?

There was also a culture of nepotism. 

Ethnic nepotism in Der Movement.  Hint: it’s not only the Asians and Afrowop Mafiosos who practice that.

It’s All Fraud East of Suez

He hired a group of Indians to run the lab. None were qualified, and they fed into the culture of incompetence described above. Because they came on H1-B visas, they couldn’t complain about their working conditions.

Hey! These are Asian cogelites!  GNXP says we need “hundreds of thousands” more of these every year.

Carreyrou’s description of Balwani’s actions match much of what I’ve seen dealing with Asians in my own career. In short, they all “ain’t right.” In this case, I am referring to Asians in the broad sense, not just Indians. A true grasp of cause and effect seems to elude them. The scientific method didn’t originate in India or China. Essentially, east of Suez, it’s all a fraud. 

Except Steve Jobs, eh?

Learning How to Spot a Fraud

Things that mesh with the PC narrative (or any narrative) too well are often frauds. Theranos was political correctness run amok. There was a “strong womyn” running the show. 

But if you criticize the “strong womyn” making Alt Lite podcasts, Alt Right white knights (some of them apparently have no experience with women apart from blood relatives) come out to hysterically defend them.

She was in an interracial relationship. 

Just like Derbyshire.

Theranos was filled with “immigrant strivers.” In talks, Holmes invoked buzzwords as though they were part of a magical spell. She told audiences to “believe in yourself.” Others joined in on the spell-casting. General Mattis called the company a “game changer.”

Imitating the form of a thing is not the same thing as the thing itself. Elizabeth Holmes’ look and back-story was a crude imitation of the outer forms of accomplished men. The truth is, it didn’t matter how Steve Jobs dressed. What he did was actually get results.

Jobs was 50% Syrian Arab – Syria being “east of the Suez.”  But, hey, why should facts and logic get in the way of a Counter-Currents post, with the current brilliant crop of Alt Righters leading the way.  They are low information, but so what?

Beware of promises to simplify that which is very complex. Experts in the field of medicine who had really undergone the complex process were the ones to call Theranos’ bluff. (A good example of an expert with great technical knowledge spotting a fraud can be found here.)

But when someone with technical knowledge in the life sciences calls out HBD pseudoscience and “movement” race fraud, then they are labelled “crazy and bitter.”  Hypocrisy.

Elizabeth Holmes left a trail of destruction in her wake. 

Just like “movement” leaders.

On a final note, one must again emphasize the cliché that all that glitters is not gold. Things that are politically correct, i.e. “women and minorities,” always need a second, harder look. Do not enter into a transaction with any Asian that is any more difficult than bazaar levels of sophistication.

Does that include Asians infiltrating pro-White websites and organizations?  Does that include the HBD fraud?  Does that include Silk Road White nationalism?

Notes

[1] Another insight into the Theranos disaster is the idea that the government, in this case the Food and Drug Administration, can help get rid of quacks. It is clear that the libertarian ideological model of “small government” would have allowed Theranos to carry out its swindle longer than it should have.

Libertarianism is an absurdity.  The fact that the Alt Right had its genesis through libertarianism tells you all you need to know about the stupidity, superficial juvenile attitudes, and aberrant ideology.

[3] Holmes was also descended from Charles L. Fleischmann (1835-1897), a wealthy manufacturer of yeast. Fleischmann was Jewish but married outside of the group. So while she had some Jewish ancestry, it is impossible to put Holmes in any ethnic category other than that of Wilmot Robertson’s American Majority.

Hey, she’s OK then.  After all, she has a Nordish ranking of 2.6439751, so what’s the problem?  She left a trail of destruction in her wake, but she’s still a whole lot better than a bunch of greasy five foot tall Afrowop brownsters scurrying around like roaches over the landscape of a once great country they ruined.

Holmes probably would have been more successful if she had concentrated on medical issues more in her “wheelhouse” – such as novel testing approaches for vaginal yeast infections.

Silk Road News: Meet Ching-Shih Chen

Very cognitive, very elite.

The Asian/Jewish-led destruction of the American scientific enterprise continues.  Excerpts, emphasis added:

A cancer researcher has resigned from The Ohio State University (OSU) in Columbus after the institution determined he had committed misconduct in eight papers. His work in designing anticancer compounds had led to millions of dollars in funding and multiple patents, as well as two compounds in clinical trials. 

According to a 75-page report released today by OSU, a committee determined that cancer scientist Ching-Shih Chen was guilty of “deviating from the accepted practices of image handling and figure generation and intentionally falsifying data” in 14 instances in eight papers. The report recommends that Chen work with co-authors and journals to produce an “immediate retraction” of those eight papers, published between 2006 and 2014. 

The investigation also prompted OSU to temporarily shut down research involving a compound developed by Chen; a phase Ib trial was suspended in June 2017… 

Chen resigned from OSU in September 2017. One month earlier, he stepped down as director of the Institute of Biological Chemistry in Taiwan… 

…According to the report, the investigation was prompted by allegations of misconduct in early 2016, involving six papers. The more the university investigated, the more potential issues it uncovered. The report notes: “In some cases, Dr. Chen indicated that there were no laboratory notebooks kept by members of the lab, rather individuals only had weekly progress reports and no daily records of the experiments they conducted.”… 

The eight papers slated for retraction have been collectively cited more than 300 times, according to Clarivate Analytics.

Race Fraud

Marital crypsis.

Who is the victim?  The “racist” father – the one his scum daughter wants to portray as a villain.  Look, the man thought he was marrying, living with, and procreating with a woman he perceived as White, was misled (by her) to think as her being White, while she was actually a light-skinned (mixed race) “African-American.”  The man had one life to live, he married and reproduced with (insofar as I know) one woman, and he wasted his life, and wasted his genetics, on an indescribably evil race fraud.  Evil?  Yes.  If she knew her husband was an anti-Black racist, how could she fool the man, in the most intimate manner possible, for their entire married lives?  It’s at least as bad as cuckoldry, passing off another man’s child as his own.  She was passing off someone else’s racial identity for her own, and passed off the offspring of an inter-racial marriage to the husband as if they were a product of an intra-racial marriage.

Evil.  Disgusting. Horrific.

However, the father can’t get off without criticism.  He was a victim, but was also victimized by his own stupidity.  I cannot image marrying someone without having a very clear idea of their ancestry and without meeting their family (or even seeing pictures of said family).  The fraud looked, as Grant said about Argentinians, “suspiciously swarthy,” so the man should have looked more deeply into the genepool he was going to dive into.

But, even with that, he’s clearly the victim in this story – defrauded into destroying his pre-existing genetic lineage, foregone parental kinship, lost European progeny.

If you allegedly “love” and “care for” your life partner, how could you willfully defraud them in such a callous manner?

Silk Road News: Of Frauds and Chus

Frauds and anti-White ideologues.

See this.  It’s not enough that Chinamen make cheap knock-offs of clothing and electronics, etc. – now they are doing so for scientific reagents.  Asians – the “human” photocopiers, and those copies are of poor fidelity indeed.

It’s Chu again. That’s not good enough.  She should be completely kicked out.  And Yale needs to put together a special commission – it can be called the Silk Road Commission – charged with investigated anti-White hatred from Asians.  Fertile ground for study indeed – a virtually limitless supply of study material.
