2001: Space Odyssey is like watching paint dry, but the paint is in love with the smell of its own farts.

Erudition for only the highest of the high-IQ “movement” crowd.

We’re not “all the same.”

Racially mixed Amren commentators assert that racial tension occurs only between groups with different average IQs (always IQ with the HBD/race realist crowd).  That is of course obviously false. See this.  Racially similar East Asian groups, with similar IQs, exhibit tension when brought into proximity, particularly when in the homeland of one of them. Radically different mental traits and abilities can exacerbate tensions, but the tensions exist because of overall racial and ethnic difference, not merely because of IQ. People do not like to be replaced by others, and higher IQ replacers can even be worse as they are more dangerous and more able to control host institutions.

As we know, HBDers are hysterically opposed to pan-Europeanism.  Here’s a reason why, demonstrated by an online commentator supporting pan-Europeanism:

Heraclitean Fire
We’re ALL going to need to team up — the entire West — to have a prayer at effectively opposing China.
China is an existential threat like we have never faced before as a country.
China’s size, economic might, military, & technological prowess dwarf the Soviets of yesteryear.

HBD is all about having Whites as a humiliated and degraded slave race to Asians (particularly the Chinese) and Jews. Having the West “team up” against China is literally blasphemy to HBD, and of course, to Silk Road White nationalism as well.  Instead, we all need to engage in “measured groveling” to all those Chinese girls with guns who will be “guarding the borders of the West.”

Arrogant Europeans always like to say” “Dumb Americans know nothing about Europe and European politics and should stay out it.”  Very well.  The opposite is true as well. Excuse me, ”Tommy Robinson,” but you’re delusional if you think the fat wad of shit Trump cares about you and your interests.  You’re not Israel, Negro prison reform, or a Big Mac, so why should he pay attention?

Trump is a fraud and always has been.

And I’d like to answer Johnson again with his assertion that it’s not true that Trump was always a fraud. His statement slyly implies to the audience that all the people saying “Trump was always a fraud” are using 20-20 hindsight.  No, there are a few of us – Strom and I being two examples – who correctly labelled Trump as a fraud BEFORE the election.

What were the signs obvious to those with a triple digit IQ?  Let’s see. Trump was a man with close Jewish family connections and an established history of hobnobbing with both wealthy Jews and with Negro celebrities.  He used to be buddies with the Clintons, who attended his (third) wedding.  He was well established as having “New York values” and had supported Democratic politicians. The man was a New York real estate mogul and reality TV star.  He had no grounding or background whatsoever in any of the issues of importance to “our side.”  His campaign, while useful in promoting chaos and balkanization, was nothing more than cheap blustering and a few comments about “Mexican rapists.” The man, as exemplified by his shockingly pathetic, ignorant, and buffoonish debate performances was and is a vulgar clown.

Why would anyone in their right mind believe he was sincere?

Countering the Rancid Current

Some truths.

The worst writer in the history of Counter-Currents strikes again.

Where does Johnson find these people?

…any decision-making under conditions of uncertainty is likely to be the opposite of scientific conclusions: allergic to Type 2 errors and tolerant of Type 1 errors.

Tell that to Johnson and Steadman and their “extreme vetting” of meetings.  

If you don’t have the right staff you don’t get the right policies. Indeed. Meet Der Movement.

Ted Cruz shameful? In the convention, maybe. Today, no – Cruz at least speaks up against Antifa violence and the Portland mayor, unlike the fraud Don Trump.

Johnson doesn’t believe Trump was a fraud from the beginning; after all, that would prove Sallis right and Johnson wrong, and we can’t have that. Johnson promotes the lie that Trump could have “cloned Jeb Bush’s platform” and still have won because of his “personality”- can you believe this? In reality, Trump’s campaign took off only after he started talking about Mexican rapists and started attacking the Bush family and their policies.  

What’s laughable is that right after Johnson makes his gaslighting comment, they all admit that people voted for Trump precisely because of his strong talk about immigration (these guys can’t get their stories straight from minute to minute.) – yes, that’s the point.  It was NOT Trump’s personality, which was actually a turn-off for many people who voted for him.  Does anyone believe that Republican voters, including evangelicals, would support a twice-divorced and thrice-married vulgar New York real estate tycoon and reality TV star who talks about his “big hands” and “grabbing pussies” IF this buffoon was merely a neoconservative clone of Jeb Bush?  Does any sane person believe that the enthusiasm that carried Trump to the nomination and then to the Presidency was based on his obnoxious jackass personality, independent of a hardline position on immigration and his America First domestic and foreign policy positions that were articulated during the campaign?

The problem is that these affirmative action “movement leaders” are unable to ever admit that they are wrong. I’m surprised that these types even admit that Hermansson was an infiltrator (although the “leaders” will not take full responsibility for the infiltration) – instead, they could have claimed that Hermansson is actually a double agent burrowing deep into the bowels (no pun intended) of HopeNotHate.

Let’s consider Trump. Let me preface this by saying that we must be careful not to be too Manichean in our view of human nature. It’s not always an orthogonal choice between being a true believer and being a fraud.  Some people are a combination of both.  Was Hitler a rabid anti-Semite or did he use anti-Semitism as a path to power?  Probably both.  Did Stalin truly believe in Marxism or did he use Marxism to achieve power. Probably both. Does Trump have any healthy instincts or is he just a political grifter?  Probably both, again.

It is entirely possible that Trump has some very vague civic nationalist and populist beliefs. But they are likely not important to him, not crucial to his worldview; he is not serious or sincere about any of it in any hardcore, authentic fashion.  He does in fact embody, as Ted Cruz suggested, New York values. He has Jewish family connections, a deep attachment to Israel, and a fondness for Negroes. He is a self-centered narcissist and if he truly cares about anyone other than himself then it likely is his elder daughter Ivanka and no one else. He certainly doesn’t care about his base.  If Trump was (and is) sincere, then why does he ignore his base (e.g., Antifa attacks, State of the Union address), lie to his base (e.g., “the Wall is being built!”) and constantly betray his base (e.g., hiring Neocons, shilling for increased legal immigration, an aggressive foreign policy, pro-Negro “criminal justice reform”)?  The man cares more about pardoning Jack Johnson than he does about his own supporters being physically attacked in the streets and sent to the hospital. His own DOJ persecutes his followers when they defend themselves and ignores the leftist domestic terrorists running wild in the streets.  For Trump to be sincere and commit all his crimes of omission and commission against his base means that the man must be a psychotic retard. However, while he may be vulgar and ignorant, and may be a psychopath, he is not psychotic and he is not retarded.  

Trump wanted to run for President for some reason.  Ego?  To build a rightist media empire after the electoral loss he thought would occur (and very likely desired)? His dislike of Obama and anger at being mocked by Obama?  Whatever the reason, he looked at the Republican field, read Coulter, and had enough sense to realize he needed to give the GOP base some “red meat” to distinguish himself from the Neocons and from Ted Cruz. The more he pushed the envelope, the better he did. It worked better than even he imagined. But if he were sincere, he’s had 2.5 years to give some demonstration of it, and he has done the exact opposite.  He’s not sincere.  He’s a fraud and Johnson was wrong and Sallis was right.

Thus Spoke Costello: Tin Cup Panhandling.  Nietzsche weeps.

Hey, fools, send in those “D’Nations” – these guys need their $100,000.  It will be put to good use, no doubt!

A Duel of Wits

Between unarmed opponents.

See this.

There is some good here, but also considerable nonsense. If the characterization of Richard Spencer’s racial views is correct, then Johnson’s racial views are sounder from an empiricist-materialist standpoint. However, there is much lacking here from a more hardcore scientific standpoint (the wages of “Traditionalism” I suppose). 

The whole “transplanted brains” scenario is absurd and meaningless intellectual masturbation.  What could one do? There are racial – and subracial (cue Durocher’s heavy breathing) – differences in brain structure that can be identified via imaging methodology.  If one were really determined to obtain a definitive identification, a small brain biopsy can yield DNA to assay for genetic ancestry and thus prove whether or not the brain tissue was of Negro origin. As far as the ridiculous question as to why build a community on race instead of other characteristics, I point both interviewer and interviewee to Salter’s On Genetic Interests. Adaptive fitness is the ultimate interest of evolved organisms (such as humans), and any group that promotes their ultimate interests will outcompete and replace those who do not. And, after all, one can always form these narrower communities within your racial group while preserving EGI, but the opposite is not possible.  One can form your little group of Tolkien fans among Whites in an all-White ethnostate, but a multi-racial Tolkien group that is not stratified by race (by definition, if it is multiracial and stratified only by Tolkienism, it will not be stratified by race) will constitute a loss of genetic interest.  Smaller groups within a White ethnostate will retain the advantages of a concentrated EGI; on the other hand, smaller groups of Whites in, say, a multiracial Tolkien Fanboy state, will suffer as a result of a loss of EGI, itself a consequence of the multiracialism of such a state. In the latter case, the situation can be retrieved only by racial separation – so why not  divide on the basis of race to begin with?

Stupidity about gender-specific nations also fails – I remember Bowery writing (correctly) long ago that gender/sex is not a genetic interest.  A man has more genetic commonality with female relatives and co-ethnics than with male non-ethnic strangers. One could subdivide a racially pure state by gender (for what purpose?) but the racial stratification must come first if one is concerned with biological fitness. If you are not concerned with fitness, fine, but that’s not an evolutionarily stable situation. You’ll end up in the dustbin of genetic history, replaced by more ethnocentric others. These are reasonably obvious arguments.  I would also point out that sexual reproduction has evolutionary advantages via increased genetic diversity. No doubt that a sufficiently advanced technology could artificially impose independent assortment and recombination on a single-sex artificial reproduction regimen, but, again, for what purpose?  While eliminating the yeastbucket requirement would no doubt be advantageous in many ways, what would be the sexual outlet for such an all-male society?  Widespread homosexuality?  I’ll take a pass on that. There are probably some things best left unchanged in human nature and the division between two sexes for reproduction is likely to be one of those.

And what’s with this obsession with Rushton and Lynn?  Look, the broad theories of both of them are likely true, but that’s as far as it goes. R-K theory on race (that I independently came up with in the 1980s after reading an ecology textbook) is undoubtedly true on the general level of – Blacks and Browns have more offspring and invest less in them; Whites and Yellows have fewer offspring but invest more in them. And, as well, Blacks and Browns have faster life histories (earlier maturation and reproduction and earlier death) than do Whites and Yellows. If Rushton had stuck with that, instead of trying to shoehorn every racial characteristic (including penis size) into the formulation, he’d be more respected today. Likewise, Lynn is likely correct that there is a general association between national IQ and economic productivity (as measured by GDP) and general accomplishment; the problem occurs when he falls too much in love with his theory (as did Rushton with his ideas) and tries to fit every data point into the pattern, with ludicrous “estimates of IQ,” racial history fairy tales about admixture, and hand waving “just so stories” to explain anomalies. The problem, I suppose, is that the broad theories are a bit too obvious and common sense, plain to any reasonably intelligent and honest observant individual, and so there isn’t much “intellectual prestige” in merely stating the obvious.  Therefore, ego-driven “intellectuals” have to build castles of sand to demonstrate how very clever they are.

Yang was a joke who never should have had any support from the Dissident Right in the first place. Those who did have made public fools of themselves.

Craig, meet Greg Johnson. And Richard Spencer. And many more.

Also, what’s the big deal about Gabbard? Oh she’s good on foreign policy. But so is Trump. He not once, but twice, averted war by outmaneuvering the warhawks in DC. First with Syria and now with Iran. He’s the peace candidate you should be voting for.

There’s no reason to pay attention to any of these clowns with a (D) in front of their name.

Craig, meet David Duke.  And Richard Spencer.

Then there’s John Morgan:

Rep. Gabbard seems to be the least bad (notice I’m not saying good) of all these people. It’s also worth mentioning her connections to/support of Hindu nationalist groups in India like the BJP and RSS (since she is a practicing Hindu herself). This doesn’t necessarily equate to sympathy for nationalism for white people, but it suggests she may at least have the vision to not be completely averse to it. In practice that may not mean much, however. But as Mr. Hampton wrote, she has no chance of getting the nomination this time around, anyway.

You know she supports reparations for Negroes, right?

A one, a one, a one two three….

Ted Cruz at least spoke up about this.  Antifa Don Trump, The God Emperor?  Silence.

MAGA!  Pepe! Kek!

Readers of this blog know that I am no apologist for homosexuals (of either sex) but I’m no apologist for hypocrisy either.  I mean, really….  Apparently, “homophobia” – “vile” or otherwise – is perfectly acceptable in the service of “movement” feuds.  Perhaps, Antifa can be critiqued in other ways than their penchant for sending gay Asians to the hospital.

Der Father’s Day in Der News

Happy Father’s Day for all readers for whom it applies.

This piece by Strom is excellent, except for one thing – the absolute nonsense about how similar “Persian” Iranians are to Europeans, more similar than are Jews, Strom asserts. That is simply not true, population genetics says otherwise, no matter what Der Movement claims. I don’t like Jews any more than Strom does, but I refuse to lie about science and objective facts just to make some political points. The problem with associating racial preservationist ideology with lies is that once the lies are identified and refuted, the enemies of racial preservationism will use that refutation to attempt to delegitimize preservationism.

We can very well favorably contrast Iranians with Jews without inventing incorrect assertions about genetic kinship and genetic distance.  After all, the Ashkenazi genepool is significantly European and the non-European elements are more similar to Europeans than are Iranians. The primary issue with Jews is more their selected behavioral traits (e.g., extreme ethnocentrism, neuroticism, and deviousness) coupled to a religious-cultural tradition of supremacism, dual morality, and hostility toward outsiders, particularly Europeans.

But, that’s a side issue. The main thrust of Strom’s work this week is sound.  It also captures much of the problem with HBD.  So, Jews have a high, high IQ.  Given all the things Strom mentioned, is that high IQ ultimately a good thing for other peoples?  Basically, the Jews are like high-IQ Roma – the same attitudes about outsiders and the urge to exploit the “other” but instead of picking people’s pockets, they are picking people’s nations. Whither IQ?

No fan of Milo, here, but his article is informative.

Joan of Arc, Joan of Arc, my e-thot for a Joan of Arc.

Now, who was it who was:

1. Opposed to the “big tent” with the Alt Lite?

2. Opposed to yeastbucket grifters infiltrating Der Movement?

I’ll give you a hint.  

Note the common themes between Alt Lite failures and that of Der Movement – the lack of judgment demonstrated by tolerating people who should be eschewed, merely because those people are of some immediate utility. A lack of patience goes along with this lack of prudence, since immediate convenience and reckless plowing ahead is valued over slow, steady, and safe progress.

The heir apparent to Polignano:

Maybe, just maybe, some people just placed too much trust and hope in a silly girl in her early twenties, who happened to have hundreds of thousands of followers but not a clue about politics… Let’s at least be open to that possibility.

Does “some people” include Der Cool Fish?

Peak Tin Cupism.  The individual’s reasoning is sound up to the point in which we consider that people can come and go in Der Movement as well as do organizations. Imagine if someone, years ago, had left money in their will to Derek Black, as an up-and-coming racialist activist.  A lot of spinning in the grave would now be going on.  The general advice in the main article is reasonably sound.

Cool Fishes and Genetic Manipulations

In der news.

Listen to this. 

First, the deplatforming.  Obviously, despite my disagreements with Counter-Currents and  other “movement” factions, I oppose their deplatforming. I don’t begrudge these types to earn a living from their activism either.  My point is, and remains, that these types should EARN their money, they should EARN their positions of leadership, and they should be held ACCOUNTABLE by their donors and the rank-and-file in general.  It is also obvious from reading my blog that I do not believe they are earning the money they get, nor do I believe that they are being held accountable.  On the other hand, if you have to give money to the tin cuppers, better to give to Counter-Currents than to give to VDARE so that Brimelow and Derbyshire can sit comfortably on lawn chairs in the leafy suburbs.

Greg is correct with his weeds analogy, the natural selection process leading to tougher far-rightists.  Of course, Counter-Currents is not the only groupuscule that has been surviving over the years. One wonders though if the System is also undergoing selection – my Red Queen analogy – and with their greater resources they may be victorious.

Lauren does good work.  Extraordinarily good work.  Laughter at my end.

Milo – who enabled him?  Who ever took him seriously? Wasn’t Milo part of the “big tent” WN 2.0 that some people promoted?  Greg, if the Alt Lite is controlled opposition and all no good, then why were you shilling for a “big tent” including the Alt Lite several years ago? You were for an alliance with the types of people you now denounce; I was against it. Who was right? Do we really need to answer that?

Greg is a “cool fish”- which is why he hysterically censors his blog and bans people when they disagree with him.  Frodi says you have to talk to people you disagree with.  Very well. Frodi, meet Greg Johnson, the cool cool fish.

The discussion about apostates was reasonable and similar to things I wrote in the past. See this about Derek Black. Note that I connect the Black case the “movement’s” affirmative action policy, the latter a topic one is not going to ever see honestly discussed at Counter-Currents.

Frodi is correct that people who are authentic WNs never really go back.  They may drop out of disgust, but they do not become apostates.  

People who live in Appalachia are “losers,” Greg?  Not everyone can live a blue state lifestyle off of “D’Nations.”  Who knows?  Maybe some of the people sending you the money you live on are types you would label as “losers.” Or does giving you money suddenly make them into “winners?’’  

I agree with Greg that those who use the term “White supremacists” to describe White nationalists should be held accountable for it.

New system for genetic manipulation.

Conventional CRISPR-Cas systems maintain genomic integrity by leveraging guide RNAs for the nuclease-dependent degradation of mobile genetic elements, including plasmids and viruses. Here we describe a remarkable inversion of this paradigm, in which bacterial Tn7-like transposons have co-opted nuclease-deficient CRISPR-Cas systems to catalyze RNA-guided integration of mobile genetic elements into the genome. Programmable transposition of Vibrio cholerae Tn6677 in E. coli requires CRISPR- and transposon-associated molecular machineries, including a novel co-complex between Cascade and the transposition protein TniQ. Donor DNA integration occurs in one of two possible orientations at a fixed distance downstream of target DNA sequences, and can accommodate variable length genetic payloads. Deep sequencing experiments reveal highly specific, genome-wide DNA integration across dozens of unique target sites. This work provides the first example of a fully programmable, RNA-guided integrase and lays the foundation for genomic manipulations that obviate the requirements for double-strand breaks and homology-directed repair.

Traditionalists can go off and hide in their snug hobbit holes, but if Whites do not partake of modern technology, others will, and use that ability to solidify their dominion over the Earth.  The Type Is can just go off into the woods, muttering over runes and eating twigs and branches, and leave the rest of us to make our way in the reality of the modern world.

But don’t worry.  Any discoveries made in America will find their way to China before they’re even published.

WN 3.0 Marches On

In all cases, emphasis added.

Remember Greg Johnson’s statement:

Greg Johnson

Posted March 6, 2018 at 8:46 pm | Permalink

Sadly, Occidental Dissent has now embraced “hard right” black-pilling and self-marginalization.

White Nationalism 3.0 will be hammered out by Counter-Currents and advocates of American Nationalism like James Allsup, Identity Europa, Anglin and Weev, and Mike Enoch

How is that WN 3.0 doing these days?  Good judgment (once again) there Greg:

A federal judge has awarded $4.1 million to a Muslim-American radio host who accused a neo-Nazi website operator of falsely accusing him of terrorism. 

U.S. District Court Judge Edmund Sargus Jr. had previously agreed to enter a default judgment against The Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin and his company.

Unlike the tin cuppers, I have no financial incentive of donations to tell (i.e., lie to) all of you about how great it’s all going for Der Movement, and how victory is at hand.  Instead, I tell you hard truths – the “movement” is going from defeat to defeat, abject failure to abject failure, embarrassment to embarrassment, and utter humiliation to utter humiliation.

And let’s not forget this little tidbit:

A motion Obeidallah’s attorneys filed in February noted that one of Andrew Anglin’s accounts received more than $198,000 in donations between February 2016 and October 2018. A third-party tracker also estimated that Anglin received more than $378,000 in Bitcoin, the motion said.

If this is true, then Anglin is giving Petey a run for his shekels.  Imagine if that money went elsewhere. Imagine if those donations went to Salter, allowing him to concentrate on research and writing to extend and expand his work on EGI and ethnic conflict.  Imagine that money was invested in a dividend fund, yielding several thousands of dollars of income per year, which could be used for various projects, while the principle is maintained. Imagine the money was spent to help buy a property that could be used for meetings, conferences, and organizing. Imagine it was spent building a legal apparatus or some other sort of needed infrastructure.  Yes, imagine, and all you’ll be doing is imagining, because while the “crazy and bitter” Sallis has those ideas for that money, the big-brained Inner Hajnal heroes running your “movement” obviously have quite different ideas on what to do with dem dere “D’Nations.”

How’s that affirmative action program working out for all of you?  Keep on giving, moneybags!

Very cognitive, very elite.  Remember, it has long been EGI Notes that has preached to you that the existential meaning of Asians is hatred of Whites.  And they openly admit it:

Greg Johnson:

It was nine years ago today that the Counter-Currents website went online. I can’t count the number of writers, YouTubers, podcasters, websites, and entire movements that have come and gone in our ideological sphere in the last nine years. The attrition is understandable. Deplatforming, demonetization, and demoralization take their toll.

Let’s rewrite for added accuracy:

It was nine years ago today that the Counter-Currents website went online. I can’t count the number of writers that have come and gone on our website in the last nine years. The attrition is understandable. Demoralization, disgust, betrayal, and banning of writers take their toll.

Just replace “Lite” with “Right” and you’re 100% correct.

Another shallow Counter-Currents post by one of the horrifically bad new crop of “writers” there. Yeah…if that thesis  is correct, then White women would be flocking to support, and have sex with, “fascists.”  Is this the case?

Odds and Ends, 6/5/19

Several items.

Meet Julius Evola.

Giulio Cesare Evola was born in Rome. The parents of Giulio Cesare Evola were Vincenzo Evola, born 4 May 1854, and Concetta Mangiapane, born 15 August 1865. They were both born in Cinisi, a small town and municipality in the Province of Palermo in the north-western coast of Sicily.

As well as “the Philosopher of Fascism.”

Giovanni Gentile was born in Castelvetrano, Sicily.

Anyone remember Negro Thomas Sowell’s pontification that Southern Italians had nothing to do with Fascism?  Just like the HBDers, non-Whites always like to lie in order to divide Europeans against each other.  Non-White HBDers are the worst.

And is Der Movement going to officially revoke Julius Evola’s “Traditionalist Hero” membership card?  How can the Type I Traditionalists continue to value the work of that Negro?

Radical leftist Antifa Don Trump and his neo-Marxist DOJ defeated.

A degenerate Negro.

It’s the origin of the Aryan people at least the ones remaining on earth, who fled civil decay and started the civilization of mankind that fell around 8-12,000 years ago. Their descendants are still here today. However they are not originally from here. The lore goes back some of the oldest historians as well as occult histories. Namely works such as “The Race to Come” is inspired by such works. Maria Orsic etc. Etc. Theres to much to cover.
