Odds and ends.
This podcast was a lot better than the usual Alt Right material, reasonably professional and lacking in juvenile jackassery. That’s probably because it is a European (Swedish) production, cohosted by an American (newly minted) lawyer. Hopefully, this quality will continue.
When reading this, keep in mind that the “federal government” these days means Donald J. Trump. Dem dere refugees keep on coming though, don’t they? Of, we’ll be told that his “travel ban” is getting blocked. Well, how about keeping the damn “refugees” in some sort of prison or concentration camp, instead of dumping them onto the good people of Tennessee?
But, but, but…I thought we were all exactly the same? Emphasis added:
Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is used to diagnose type 2 diabetes (T2D) and assess glycemic control in patients with diabetes. Previous genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified 18 HbA1c-associated genetic variants. These variants proved to be classifiable by their likely biological action as erythrocytic (also associated with erythrocyte traits) or glycemic (associated with other glucose-related traits). In this study, we tested the hypotheses that, in a very large scale GWAS, we would identify more genetic variants associated with HbA1c and that HbA1c variants implicated in erythrocytic biology would affect the diagnostic accuracy of HbA1c. We therefore expanded the number of HbA1c-associated loci and tested the effect of genetic risk-scores comprised of erythrocytic or glycemic variants on incident diabetes prediction and on prevalent diabetes screening performance. Throughout this multiancestry study, we kept a focus on interancestry differences in HbA1c genetics performance that might influence race-ancestry differences in health outcomes.
Objective, non-political, ethnically disinterested anthropological and genetic analysis at this website, no doubt.
As far as Catalonia goes, my opinion is if they want independence, give it to them, but it’s really an irrelevant issue in the last analysis. What are they going to do with their vaunted independence and ethnonationalist sovereignty? Import more alien immigrants and “refugees?”

But what about the HBDers?
Also, remind me again (*) why Chancellor Merkel has been financially pounding hell out Greece, which, for all its sins, is part of the European Union, while cozying up to and inviting into the E.U. Turkey, which is not?
I have this weird notion that the European Union would be more popular with Europeans if it tried harder to benefit Europeans than non-Europeans in, say, West Asia.
Breezy is correct. But look at it this way. For the likes of Merkel and other Superiors, Turks are wonderfully sweet Asiatics – and we must all grovel and prostrate ourselves before the Altar of Asia – while Greeks are, well, you know….
*Yes, but remind me again why HBDers worship at the Altar of Asia while spewing hate toward particular European ethnies, up to and including fabricating “estimated IQ scores” while actually ignoring real ones?
Over-representation of wops, dagoes, and hunkies.
Amoral familism? Genetic heterogeneity impeding investment in collective social goods? Insufficient levels of “high-trust hunter gatherer” ancestry?
Of course, Jews and Northeast Asians are represented as well, but, come on now, as the HBDers will tell us that is compensated by their high, high, high IQ, and, certainly, the Asians produce nice wives for socially awkward White nerds.
On the other hand, the Meds and Slavs – obviously completely useless by comparison!

Like comics, sports are a silly but illuminating view into mass pop culture. Now, isn’t gambling an “addiction” just like drug use is an “addiction?” Funny how the same sports writers (also the guys who give a free pass to Dusty Baker’s racialist views) who preach to us that we need to “understand and forgive” the drug-addicted athlete take such a hard line against the gambling-addicted athlete. Don’t both of them lie to cover their misdeeds? Why is one deserving of sympathy and the other scorn? Is it because SJW hipsters view drug abuse as hitting too close to home, while gambling is something lower-class “redneck” and “White ethnic” White folks do?
Europe’s demographic crisis is an argument against, not for, more immigration, since immigration only accelerates the genocidal race replacement, and creates conditions that suppress the native birthrate even more. Dealing with low native birthrates with immigration is like dealing with runaway inflation by printing more money. What kind of retardates think that’s a good thing?
Is the only reason folks go to Sam’s Club because there is no Costco around?
I say failure.
I’m sure Durocher and company will think the French results are some sort of triumph for “mainstreaming.” What I see is the bulk of the French political spectrum so hysterical about the FN that they’re willing to joining forces in some sort of Submission-like scenario to keep the FN out of power. And “informed” opinion in Europe thinks that such manipulation is a good thing, and “healthy” for “democracy.”
In other words, the Establishment treats the FN as if it were Golden Dawn. All the mainstreaming and backpedaling and centrist nonsense has meant nothing. “Oh but it got them votes,” the mainstreamers will say. Did it? Or are the votes coming from White desperation and the reaction to terrorism? How do you know a more radical political party and leader wouldn’t have gotten the same, or more, votes? And if the Establishment is successful in blocking the FN from power, then what good is mainstreaming when the whole point of mainstreaming is “it’ll help us achieve power and then….”
I’m not sure the mainstreaming strategy is working. And what happens if the FN does come to power and then governs in a centrist “safe” manner in order to retain that power? The point will be what then?
