It’s Becoming a Somethingburger

Various issues.

I’ve been paying close attention to various interviews and announcements from health experts (Dutton swoons about ”credentialism” – let’s hear what the theology folks have to say about viral transmission). The situation is dire. The China Plague is spreading, the modes of transmission now include feces-lack-of-hand-washing-contamination as well as person-to-person via air, there’s complete skepticism about containment outside China, the UK is having big problems with this, and the SJW System has it “in” for Whites.

All we hear from the System/SJWs is that travel restrictions are “racist” and “discriminatory.” They WANT the disease to spread in the USA. Reading between the lines what we can observe is gross disappointment among the SJWs that there aren’t more Whites infected and dying. Why should only Asiatics suffer? Share and share alike! True egalitarianism is achieved when the White Privilege of not being infected and dying ends, and the White devils start suffering like everyone else.

Meanwhile, there is news (if you believe the sources) that “re-infection” can occur with deadly consequences. That is, a person is or has been already infected, is fighting it or has recovered, has antibodies, gets exposed again, and that secondary exposure over-stimulates the immune system, with the resulting “cytokine storm” killing the patient. Whether or not this turns out to be reality, the established facts about the China Plague are bad enough.

True enough, some patients only have very mild symptoms. So?  Even with “Captain Trips” there were some few who were immune. Oh, that’s fiction, you may say.  However, it reflects reality. A plague does not have to kill, or even sicken, everyone to be absolutely devastating. Just ask those Europeans who survived The Yellow Death (called by System liars The Black Death).

More to the point is that even IF, starting today, the whole thing fizzles out, it has already had significant sociopolitical consequences in China and economic consequences that will have ripples throughout the world in 2020.  But it is not fizzling out starting today, is it?

This is a Somethingburger, my friends, not a Nothingburger (as the retarded “movement” would have you believe).

Once again: Der Movement – wrong, wrong, they’re always, ALWAYS wrong.

This situation will, if nothing else, prove the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of Der Movement, and even more so of its HBD race realist Yellow Supremacist faction.

As stated here before, you know damn well that if it were Black Africans – or even lower on the HBD hierarchy, S. Italians – responsible for this disaster, the “movement” would be screaming about it night and day, and the spontaneous ejaculations from HBD micropenes would rival Niagara Falls in volume and intensity.  But China?  Move on, move on, there’s nothing to see here.


The race war of Yellow against White.  China is waging chemical and biological warfare against the White race.  HBDers support China.  HBDers are genocidal race traitors.


Another human murdered by the monsters. HBD supports the monsters.  HBD is a criminal conspiracy.


Two serious coronavirus-related Amren questions:


1. Is Derbyshire attending the 2020 Amren conference?


2. If so, does that constitute a health risk for the other attendees?

Read this account of a typical effete White.

What’s interesting is that the name under the title read:

[name redacted]*

While at the end it said:

Spencer J. Quinn is a frequent contributor to Counter-Currents and the author of the novel White Like You.

And then the other name was fairy soon after changed to Quinn. The other name is also a Counter-Currents contributor. Does this mean that the same people contribute Counter-Currents articles under different names – artificially inflating the “diversity of opinion” at that site?  Or was it just an error like previously confusing Hampton and Johnson (unless they really are one and the same, which I am not claiming [although anything is possible])?

You know, the two-for-one deal is not impossible. I’m not saying that’s the case here – as I said the possibility of an error through incompetence is always possible when you’re dealing with these guys.  But it’s not impossible. 

*I’m not going to put the name here, since the fact that it was quickly changed means that either the author does not want to be associated with that essay by name or it was another example of affirmative action incompetence (or both). I don’t reveal things that are private and not already overtly public; that’s not what EGI Notes is about.  

Either possibility – multiple personas as really one person or merely repeated episodes of website formatting incompetence – does not reflect well on Counter-Currents. Then again, Counter-Currents does not reflect well on Counter-Currents, so what else can we expect?

Dutton’s critique of Rushton never happened, right?

Speaking of which, see this.  I’ll say this for Dutton – he delegitimizes HBD more than any of my own criticisms have so far achieved. Besides behaving like a juvenile jackass on podcasts, he engages in the HBD version of “purity spiraling” – attacking other HBD figures, first Rushton (but, strangely enough, in this review, Rushton’s material is now considered sound) and now Murray.  Dutton then promotes the works of pseudoscientists like “Tricky Dick” Lynn and “the Italian” Piffer, whose “work” has been analyzed, and refuted, here and elsewhere. Mr. Hello Hello Hello is like a loose cannon rolling along the deck of the HMS HBD, firing away wildly.  Keep it up, Eddie.

And then we have this, courtesy of Counter-Currents:

But there is a faction of the Dissident Right who believe that Bernie Bros should be the next frontier. Richard Spencer — whose new wife is a DSA socialist — recently endorsed Bernie Sanders for president, and TRS’s Fash the Nation has been giving Bernie glowing — no pun intended — coverage lately.

Can you doubt Sallis when I say that Der Movement is a pathetic joke?

See this.  I will assume that Strom is sincere in his concern about White demographics, his attitudes toward the Jewish power establishment, and his worries about the “browning of America.”  Very well.  Now, Ron Unz is a wealthy Jew who has written positively about the Hispanic influx into America and has written negatively about White nationalism.  Unz is a promoter of HBD, a cult that celebrates “high Jewish and Asian IQ.” Indeed, Unz has funded, according to online documentation, the likes of “Razib” Khan and Greg Cochran. Curiously, certain “White nationalists” write for Unz’s website, promoting the Unzian HBD agenda.  Whether they are paid to do so I do not know.  Nevertheless, the idea of a White nationalist writing for Unz is one that, in my opinion, any authentic White nationalist should denounce. Unfortunately, Strom has heretofore refused to critique Unz and the Unzian clique of WN traitors.


This is HBD:

JohnEngelman 
I believe that the biggest problem facing our planet is the growth in the world’s population. I believe that the second biggest problem is that people with IQ’s below 100 are having more children than people with IQ’s above 100. I believe that the third biggest problem is that computer technology and automation are eliminating jobs people with IQ’s below 100 are able to learn.
I believe the human species is approaching another genetic shakeout. It won’t be pretty, but the result will be a human population with a much higher average intelligence. Because I believe that the trend toward miscegenation is unstoppable, and will accelerate, this more intelligent human species will be a multi racial hybrid.

Again, we see the HBD objective: Whites mongrelized out of existence, a “high IQ” Jeurasian admixed caste – but no doubt large numbers of unmixed Chinamen will continue to exist; you can’t mongrelize 1.4 billion ethnocentric White-hating Orientals.  Interesting that some of us are labeled as “paranoid” and “crazy and bitter” for denouncing HBD for things that the HBDers themselves heartily embrace.


HBD is purely an anti-White hate cult.  Meanwhile, Strom is strangely silent about HBD.  Why?


An idiot:

It is a good deal easier to get along with blacks from the Caribbean than it is wit  [sic] natural-born American blacks, especially when they are urban, less so if they are rural.

Obviously this is someone who never had to live among Jamaicans, who are as far below “American” Blacks as the latter are from Whites.  Reggae is to rap what rap is to Mozart.  Experto Crede.


The retard Zman:

In reality, the alt-right was doomed when the face of it became a narcissistic dilettante, incapable of organizing a one car funeral. A serious movement never would have tolerated Spencer as the leader.

Sure.  But that’s incomplete.  Let’s rewrite that last sentence:

A serious movement never would have tolerated Spencer, Johnson, Taylor, Pierce, Duke, Brimelow, MacDonald, Parrott, Heimbach, (fill in the blank for any other of the myriad Quota Queens), as leaders.

Back to Zman:

The whole Spencer fiasco puts the lie to the claims by some that optics are unimportant in their politics. The sole reason Spencer rose to become the face of the alt-right is he looked good on camera.

No, you liar, that’s not the sole reason.

Politics is always about keeping the ends in mind and making the necessary compromises to further those ends. 

As long as those compromises do not compromise the ends themselves, which is something all of the mainstreamers and “dissident right” grifters do not (or pretend to do not) understand.  When the means contradict the ends, then those means are useless, no matter how “practical” they are. Sailer’s “citizenism” is a perfect example, albeit that Sailer’s error is compounded by the reality that “citizenism” is no more practical in today’s America than is full-throated White nationalism.

Politics is a means to an end. 

Indeed it is.

Ideologues always fall into the trap of thinking politics is an end in itself…

No, you shallow-minded retard.  If the ideology is structured to achieve a specific end, then it is necessary.  Indeed, it is anti-ideological “practical” “political pragmatism” that ends up believing that “being in power” is an end in itself, regardless of what is or is not achieved with that power.

…which is why ideological states are always unstable and usually short lived. 

Define “ideological state.”

Successful outsider politics has to be practical in its application in order to win ground in the vast area that is always up for grabs between the orthodoxy and those challenging it.

And then do what with that “won ground?”  Mainstream conservatism took that “won ground” and surrendered it without a fight to the Left. Is that the sort of “pragmatic success” we should emulate?

A sincere man of genuine greatness!  When will Johnson be eschewed as a “movement” “leader?”

“Awful political takes.”  Of course.  Just like a Negress in some local DMV somewhere, “movement leaders” never actually have to be right about anything.  Their affirmative action protections are their shield.

Hall of Shame 2020

And other news.

So Schilling gets passed over again because of his rightist political views, while an over-rated mulatto with the fielding range of a barnacle and a White guy lucky enough to play in Colorado get elected. Most amusing are those SJW sportswriters who assert that they wouldn’t vote for Schilling because of his “hate” but would vote for bobble-head hominid Barry Bonds.   Black Privilege and all.

More evidence that Sallis is always, ALWAYS right – yet another example of the ethnonationalist-Nordicist-HBD alliance.  One of Counter-Currents’ Andrew Fraser wanna-bes writes:

Everything that Stoddard wrote has stood the test of time. 

If by “everything” you actually mean “virtually nothing” about “racial science” then you’re absolutely correct.

His division of European races into what he called Nordics in northern Europe and Mediterraneans in Southern Europe are reaffirmed by recent DNA studies.

Sure! There’s plenty of DNA studies talking about that; I must have just missed them all. There is a PCA-based clustering between Northern and Southern Europe in the DNA sense, but no one is talking about a disjunctive Nordic/Mediterranean split in the scientific literature – the word “Nordic” in particular is not used.. And it is not just nomenclature; while clustering is possible, genetic differences are for the most part clinal, not disjunctive.  Further, looking at the rest of that Counter-Currents essay, no one is calling Balkanoids “Alpinid” – where is “Alpinid” in the “recent DNA studies” I wonder?- as most of those Balkanoids are more in the Southern European cluster (the Polish and Russian “Alpinids” in contrast are in the Northern European cluster). By the way, are Stoddard’s views on Ancient Rome supported by “recent DNA studies” – you know the ones that cluster Roman Ice Age and Republic samples among current Southern European populations?  Oh, I forgot, Der Movement is making believe that study doesn’t exist.

The real reason this guy is getting all hot and bothered over Stoddard:

Stoddard was from a prominent New England family. His immigrant ancestor was Anthony Stoddard, father of the Puritan minister Solomon Stoddard. He was also related to Sir George Downing, for whom Downing Street in London is named, and Jonathan Edwards, the minister who preached the famous sermon, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. Theodore’s father was John Lawson Stoddard, who wrote and lectured on his travels and also wrote hymns and poetry. His mother, Mary Brown, was born in Maine. Stoddard men frequently married women with esteemed families as well – many were physicians. Theodore’s direct ancestors were New England thinking men, not soldiers or pioneers. A look at his family tree also shows a pattern of his male ancestors marrying older than the norm.

His ancestry is of great benefit to all humanity!  Just like John Lindsay.

Were it not for Stoddard, we may not have known there was ever a problem in the first place.

Sure!  Without Stoddard we would never have noticed all those non-White faces in Los Angeles, New York, London, and Paris!  What a hysterical idiot – or we can just say “a current Counter-Currents writer.”

The diseased cogelites are at it again.  Ever notice that the high, high-IQ Land of the Gods is an over-crowded, diseased, polluted, chaotic dystopia whose major contributions to human progress include copying the ideas of others and spreading viral pandemics? 

Ah, the wages of HBD:

My SO is an intelligent, fair-minded, loving Jewish woman (I’m a Gentile male). She admits respect for my Holocaust revisionism, but never expresses agreement with it outside us (I don’t often express it face-to-face, but I do write and publish it, under a pseudonym). But she often comes to my defense because of her hatred of the accusatory, violently condemnatory tactics typically employed by advocates of the regnant Holocaust narrative. She vigorously defends freedom of expression, even if she doesn’t always exercise it herself.

So, God bless her, she often appears to be siding with me, and she’s not shy about being seen that way.

That’s at TOO of all places.  Hey, no problem!  Maybe he can write for Unz!

Hey, would your “devout Christian” father approve of you using Eastern Europe as your private brothel, you ethnoimperialist hypocrite?

The Master of Disaster.  He’s of great benefit to all humanity, no doubt – at least, non-White humanity.

In an announcement made by the university in June 2017, Dutton was found to have conducted scientific misconduct due to plagiarism.

In the grand tradition of Andrew Hamilton!

The article discussed IQ tests done on Finnish conscripts, and a table of the IQ test results had been compiled by a student for a master’s thesis which was not attributed. 

Is Rushton the only one who is a fraud and a thug?

Dutton stated in his response that the master’s thesis was attributed in his original version but Lynn had removed it. 

So, Lynn is the fraud and thug?  Another example of Sallis being always right, eh?

Lynn took responsibility for the incident…

Responsibility, but not accountability.

…however, the university did not investigate Lynn’s part because he has never been associated with the institution.

How about we investigate?

Are the juvenile costumes Dutton uses in his hysterically neurotic podcasts also plagiarized?  If the Alt Right is Beavis-and-Butthead White nationalism, then Duttonism is Beavis-and-Butthead HBD.

A British citizen, he is married to a Finnish woman, with whom he has two children.

Another ethnoimperialist. Isn’t it funny how the alliance also reflects similar personal behaviors?  

Are the genetic interests of Finns served by this infusion of British DNA?

Odds and Ends, 12/10/19

Various issues.

UPDATE – the post now credits “Robert Hampton” for the low quality review.

Robert Hampton (not Greg Johnson?) unburdens himself:

Most World War II films like to portray America’s fighting force as an ethnic melting pot. In Midway, nearly all of the characters are Anglos and heartlanders who don’t reminisce about Brooklyn. 

As opposed to reminiscing about Brokeback Mountain.

The one clear exception is Gaido, an Italian from New York. 

That damn wop!

The historic American nation fights for itself.

Like John BasiloneNo, wait….


Basilone – the extended phenotype of guys like Johnson, who clearly exclude “Manila John” from possibly ever being accepted into “the historic American nation.”  No affirmative action for you, paisan.  Gaslighting Greggy and Raunchy Richie want to keep it all for themselves.

Gaido is captured by the Japanese after his plane is shot down. He’s thrown into the sea when he refuses to give the position of the American ships.

Ah…he’s expendable.  Why shouldn’t he sacrifice himself for real White men?

It’s dangerous to show heroic whites defeat evil yellow men.

Derbyshire may get offended.


Question: Do dumb dagoes still send “D’Nations” to Counter-Currents?  After all, Greg needs to fund going to the movies, so it’s all good!  Close to $100,000 for the latest fundraiser – remember, those who give live in the Golden Age today!  Just not in Brooklyn.    

Unlike Rand, I’m not going to imply Jack Merritt had it coming. His father’s grief must be immense. Yet he is waging an online political battle immediately after his son’s death at the hands of a Muslim.

We’ve seen this before. University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts disappeared in 2018. After police arrested an illegal immigrant, her father rather bizarrely defended Hispanics. “As far as I’m concerned,” he said, “they’re Iowans with better food.” He also attacked politicians who call for stricter border control, saying Mollie would have called their views “profoundly racist.” Her mother let an illegal immigrant who was related to the alleged killer stay in her home.

Kevin Sutherland was killed, apparently at random, by a black man on the Washington D.C. Metro on Independence Day 2015. He was stabbed repeatedly; no one tried to help.

The late Sutherland worked in liberal politics and had been an intern for Congressman Jim Himes. Sutherland’s Twitter feed was filled with attacks on the Confederate flag, Christianity, and conservatives. Then presidential candidate Chris Christie blamed “liberal policies” for the murder. Congressman Himes condemned him, accusing Governor Christie of “fearmongering and thinly veiled racism.”

In 2015, two black men raped a pregnant woman named Amanda Blackburn and shot her in the back of the head. Her preacher husband Davey Blackburn said he “forgave” the killers and hoped he could “get the opportunity to share the Gospel with these guys.” He also said, “Jesus takes what the world says is a tragedy and makes it beautiful.”

That same year, Islamic militants killed 129 people in Paris. In a video the New York Times called “moving,” the husband of one of the victims said he didn’t hate the killers. “I will not give you the gift of hate,” he said. “Even though it is what you were hoping for, responding to hatred with anger would be to fall to the same ignorance that made you the people you are.”

There’s also Amy Biehl, a young Fulbright scholar who traveled to South Africa to register blacks in the first all-race election in 1994. She was murdered by a black mob, despite her pleas that she was a “comrade.” Her parents showily forgave the killers, who were released without punishment because the Truth and Reconciliation Commission determined the murder was “political.” Indeed, her parents took the opportunity to honor those who “lost their lives in the struggle.” They gave jobs to two of the murderers.

How can we explain this? I believe it’s something beyond pathological altruism.

Yes, it’s those “high trust northern hunter-gatherers” in action. If the “movement” really believes all of that in the genetically deterministic sense (and apparently it does), then everything that Hood wrote is a warning not to put all our eggs in the “high trust” basket. Maybe we should have some input and leadership from some “low trust Neolithic farmers” to balance things out.

If even half our readers sent in ten dollars a month, let alone 10 percent of their income, I have absolute faith we’d triumph — and quickly.

Once again, Hood peddles the outrageous lie that all we need is just more money.  If you give that money to the “movement” as it currently exists, it’ll just waste it, just as it wasted the millions of dollars it already ran through, generating nothing but endless failure.

See this.  It’s already dead.

Richard Lynn, the stalwart defender of the race hypothesis, issues a challenge from on high to find a single instance in which Africans have higher IQs than Europeans and then claims that under such circumstances, “the evolutionary and genetic theory of these differences would be falsified.” Chanda Chisala then says, “Game on!” and manages to find one instance in which a small subset of black children outperform a much larger subset of white children on a series of exams.

Does this mean that Chisala refuted the race hypothesis in IQ? No. It means he refuted an unwise and arrogant statement made by Richard Lynn.

Putting “unwise and arrogant” and “Richard Lynn” in the same sentence seems to me to be a redundancy. 


True enough, finding exceptions does not disprove the clearly observed general trends of racial differences in intelligence. But that is not the point here. HBDer Lynn put forth a falsifiable hypothesis. The hypothesis was falsified. By Lynn’s standards – derived from his moronically unwise and pathetically arrogant statement – the hypothesis is incorrect. In reality, the real hypothesis, that of general trends in intelligence due to racial differences, has not been falsified.  But Lynn’s retarded, completely genetically deterministic, cartoonish views on IQ were falsified.  Yes, it was falsified in a somewhat unconvincing manner, but that is the fault of Lynn for framing the hypothesis the way he did.  I do agree with this:

Does this mean that Chisala refuted the race hypothesis in IQ? No. It means he refuted an unwise and arrogant statement made by Richard Lynn.

But we need to put Lynn ns the same category as Rushton – a fraud and a hypocrite.  It’s not enough to cover up Lynn’s manifest deficiencies by merely saying he was “unwise and arrogant” in one instance. That one instance is a reflection of the hand-waving, pseudoscientific, never admitting to being wrong, nature of HBD. This one instance is a peek at the rotten underbelly of the HBD travesty.

Spencer expresses himself.  And whose fault is that?  The “movement’s” affirmative action “leadership” – of which Spencer is a prominent member.

Even if most whites generally prefer a partner of their own race, many of them will choose someone of another race if he or she is younger and more attractive. They trade their whiteness (and sometimes money) for youth and beauty – at least as long as it is socially acceptable.

The most common example of this is probably white men marrying Asian women, which explains why 12% of the white men, but only 10% of the white women, marry outside their race.

This constellation also seems rather normalized among racial nationalists. The American Renaissance Conference even invited one of these men to give a speech on “The Arctic Alliance” earlier this year!

Of course.  The HBDers promote the grand Jeurasian future. Derbyshire, an Englishman married to a Chinatrix with mixed-race children and who is a Judeophile – is the leading proponent of this. So, of course, he’ll be featured prominently at Amren.

I agree with you. There was an article I believe on this website that stated white men whom date outside their race often do it out of lack of confidence.

Derb – “awkward squad” – so designated by his own mother.


“Movement” solipsism on display as follows.  A Counter-Currents commentator links to scientific research – real science, not 23andMe junk – clearly showing extensive New World admixture in the Argentinian population.  The “movement” peanut gallery responds thus:

Argentina is the worst Latin American example for you, because its white population is largely descended from recent immigrants from Europe, in about the 1900’s. That is certainly the reason they still have sizeable numbers of nearly pure whites.

Who cares about dat dere science?  Someone writes something on the Internet, so it must be true.  Every thought, every comment, every post from Der Movement instantly creates reality!  The Lathe of Heaven Syndrome.

You are painting with a very broad brush here. There is an edge of hysteria to this sort of MGTOW apocalypticism. I can’t help thinking that communicating such attitudes, even subliminally, must make a man less attractive to women.

Certainly, Greg is an expert on this matter.


After everything that’s happened, after the complete and humiliating collapse of the Alt Right, we still get this in December 2019.  Remarkable.  And, of course, rattling the tin cup for “D’Nations” – also in the name of the utterly discredited Alt Right:

Predicting eminence.

This investigation examined whether math/scientific and verbal/humanistic ability and preference constellations, developed on intellectually talented 13-year-olds to predict their educational outcomes at age 23, continue to maintain their longitudinal potency by distinguishing distinct forms of eminence 35 years later. Eminent individuals were defined as those who, by age 50, had accomplished something rare: creative and highly impactful careers (e.g., full professors at research-intensive universities, Fortune 500 executives, distinguished judges and lawyers, leaders in biomedicine, award-winning journalists and writers). Study 1 consisted of 677 intellectually precocious youths, assessed at age 13, whose leadership and creative accomplishments were assessed 35 years later. Study 2 constituted a constructive replication-an analysis of 605 top science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) graduate students, assessed on the same predictor constructs early in graduate school and assessed again 25 years later. In both samples, the same ability and preference parameter values, which defined math/scientific versus verbal/humanistic constellations, discriminated participants who ultimately achieved distinct forms of eminence from their peers pursuing other life endeavors.

That’s in Northern Italy and thus an assault against those blonde, blue-eyed, ultra-Aryan, Hallstatt Nordics there – like this fellow – and we can’t have that!

More HBD Follies

And other news.

First – a secret video of a high-level Alt Right meeting is revealed!

I typically ignore Dutton, but this comically self-unaware video deserves a few comments.  Everything Dutton says here can apply to him as well; is one reason Dutton is offended by criticisms of his past videos (hysterically calling it “hate mail”) his low self-esteem?  Borderline personality disorder?  Dutton’s underlying objective here is a Frankfurt School-like pathologization of dissenting opinions.

The classic example of his pathologization of dissent here is the comments about Irish IQ. Dutton takes a page from Durocher and assumes that if members of a population group argue against HBD lies about that group, then this is due to “wounded self-esteem.” God forbid that there may be legitimate criticisms of HBD!  Dutton goes further than Durocher. The latter merely engages in ad hominem to accuse critics of his racial theories as being motivated by “ethnic hurt feelings.”  The former, Dutton, pathologizes those alleged “hurt feelings.” You see, the “hurt feelings” are the result of being easily offended because of “borderline personality disorder.”  Disagree with Dutton? You need therapy!  Perhaps you should be sent to a Soviet-style political-psychiatric clinic, you neurotic (*). How Dutton (and Durocher) is different from the Left in pathologizing criticism is not immediately apparent.

Let’s consider Lynn’s “work” on Irish IQ.  Lynn took two disparate data sets of Irish IQ – one test given to Irish children and another to Irish adults, with the findings showing a two thirds of a SD (!) difference in IQ between those two groups – and then averaged the data!  Then, since the results of this averaging gave an “estimated IQ” that fit in well with Lynn’s GDP-IQ hypothesis, that “estimated IQ” was considered reasonable – very reasonable, indeed! – by Lynn and his acolytes.

Now, typical “movement” “activists,” who know nothing about science, may think all of that is all good and great, but to any genuine scientist, it is abhorrent. If you want to average data points, then they have to be from true biological replicates, not data derived from two different experimental approaches given to different sample populations (e.g.,children and adults).  And then to use that completely wrong data “estimate” to legitimize a pre-conceived hypothesis is totally outrageous, is totally self-serving, totally inconsistent to how science is done. Notice that no attempt was made to determine why the two IQ data points were so different; as long as the desired result was obtained, it’s all good to the Lynnites. How would Lynn “estimate” group running speed – average times of potato sack races by kindergarteners with sprinting times of Olympic athletes?

And if someone claims that such laughable approaches are not atypical for “the social sciences” then all that does is underscore that “social science” is an oxymoron.

HBD is not science; it is pseudoscience used in the service of politics.  And if an Irishman objects to these “estimates,” that is completely justified.  I’m not Irish, by the way, and do not have a “dog in the fight” on this matter.  And, by the way, even if it is true that the Irish have the IQ level that Lynn and Dutton claim, why does Der Movement obsess over it so much?  Insofar as I know, the Irish do not receive affirmative action in the USA (or anywhere else), they do not have deficiencies in levels of accomplishment in America and do not claim that any perceived deficiencies are the result of “systemic racism”- unlike Negroes, there is no strong rationale for this focus on their IQ, other than to indulge “movement” obsessions or to attempt to legitimize Lynn’s IQ-GDP correlations.

On the other hand, when it comes to enhancing the idea of a “high-high Chinese IQ” these guys use data that are very likely not representative of the Chinese population – but, hey, as long as it makes the Chinese seem like our intellectual superiors, it’s all good.  

But all of the above is merely a manifestation of “borderline personality disorder.” 

*If Dutton thinks that sort of speech reflects neuroticism, then why doesn’t he do an analysis of Spencer’s post-Unite the Right tirade?  Neurotic? Or how about Johnson banning people from his site for the slightest dissent. Easily offended?

More to the point, how does Dutton believe he comes across in his videos?  If anyone is behaving in a neurotic and histrionic manner, it is Dutton himself.  He reminds me of Strom’s first wife in that old Revilo Oliver memorial service video.  Those of you who have seen that know of what I write.  I am also amused about how Dutton uses an anecdotal incident with an ex-friend to illustrate his point (quantitative science!) – even more amusing, the retelling of the incident is essentially recalling how this ex-friend offended Dutton.  The lack of self-awareness is stunning – no neurotic cognitive dissonance, no siree!

Milady in the news.  It’s good to see that the female is displaying accomplishment in those fields of activity for which she is so uniquely suited.

Amren worries about their key constituency – Asians.  Asians support “meritocracy,” eh?  Putting aside groups such as “Asians for Affirmative Action,” Asian network of ethnic nepotism are hardly consistent with “meritocracy.” But, hey, it’s the Holy Oriental, so let us all grovel before the Altar of Asia.

Is Trump pushing Facebook to increase censorship of Trump supporters?

If she had stayed in China, this wouldn’t have happened.  Good things tend to happen (and bad things don’t) when you don’t invade the living spaces of other peoples.

Zman is getting better and better at the tin cup panhandling:

If you care about your community and want to support those working hard on your behalf, consider supporting my work by donating the price of a beer or a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Five bucks a month is not a lot to ask. Unlike those mega-corporations, I will not use your money to destroy your family and community.

No, but he’ll defend Jews who do those things to you and your community.

When you read this, remember Lynn pontificating that “pollution” is lowering the high, high IQ of China.  Cherry picking, anyone?

The project to make cells resistant to viruses (and other stressors) seems to be essentially a joint enterprise of European-descended people (e.g., Church) and Jews (e.g., Ostrov). Involvement of the Holy Oriental seems to, at best, at the lowest levels of technical assistance.  Thus, Whites and Jews (to give credit where credit it due) are at the forefront of scientific innovation, while the ever-so-superior Yellows are not.

The scientific group Genome Project-write (GP-write) announced on Tuesday that they plan to launch a “grand-scale community-wide project” to develop cells that are resistant to viruses, as well as cells that are potentially resistant to radiation, freezing, aging and cancer. It’s the first step, it says, toward producing “ultra-safe cells” at will.

Der Movement starts breathing fast and heavily – dat dere Nordic Desert Empire!  Well, if the body really is so remarkably well preserved, maybe there’s some viable nuclear DNA there to do autosomal genetic testing for overall ancestry and phenotypic traits, and not just mtDNA for maternal lineage determination.  No doubt any such autosomal data would slow down and lighten the breathing rates of sweaty Nutzis.  But then again, maybe not – they’ll just ignore or misinterpret it.

Duchesne, Strom,and Lynn

In der news.

Listen to this.  That is a generally good podcast, and they – particularly Johnson – do a good job dissecting the SJW nonsense against Duchesne.  I regret to hear that Duchesne had to prematurely retire because of this outrageous situation.  The whole scenario does confirm everything I’ve been writing the last few days about how activists and potential activists need to be prudent and take care of themselves first. If even a tenured professor with excellent student comments can be forced out, how is some level military recruit going to survive?

I did not like Johnson’s comments about how professors use convoluted and incomprehensible language.  That may be the norm in the fields of Duchesnse and Johnson, but STEM people strive for clarity, particularly with all the ESL Asians reviewing papers and grants (and using any excuse to trash quality White work in order to open space for their own co-ethnics).

A good piece by Strom.  When he sticks to sociopolitical and broad racial themes, and not population genetics, he does well.  Despite my occasional criticism, I am thankful lo Strom for his ADV broadcasts in the 1990s that helped form my initial “movement” worldview (Pierce also contributed to this).  Criticism from my direction is never meant to be personal, but corrective.


Let’s look at this nonsense once again.  Emphasis added:

Richard Lynn: It was in 1977 when I discovered that the intelligence of the Japanese was 3 IQ points higher than that of white Americans. Hitherto, virtually all discussions of race differences in intelligence had been concerned with the problem of why white Americans and British had higher IQs than other peoples, and this was generally attributed to the tests being biased in their favor. My discovery about the Japanese set me thinking about whether other Northeast Asian peoples (Chinese and Koreans) have higher IQs that Europeans. I began collecting studies on this and found that they did.

Collecting studies  – such as Chinese testing done under problematical conditions and confined to coastal elites and college students, “estimating” IQ through PISA scores, and all the rest of the Lynnian flim-flam.

Richard Lynn: I regard the most important to be what I have called “the cold winters theory” to explain the evolution of race differences in intelligence. The theory explains the relation between the IQs of the races and the coldness of the winters. Thus, the Northeast Asians had to survive the coldest winters and evolved the highest IQs (105) followed by the Europeans (100), North Africans and South Asians (84) and sub-Saharan Africans (70). I first proposed this theory in 1991 and it has become widely accepted.

Widely accepted by who?  You and other HBDers and an assortment of Nutzis?  Let us put aside for the moment whether or not Lynn is correct. The assertion that his theory is “widely accepted” is plain wrong and borderline delusional.  Mainstream psychometricians, behavioral scientists, etc. do not endorse Lynn’s views.

Richard Lynn: “The Jews of the East” is a good description of the Chinese in Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries, including Malaysia, Cambodia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. In all these countries the Chinese have been minorities that have been more successful than the majority indigenous populations, just as the Jews have been in Europe and the United States, and for the same reason: they have higher IQs. I have documented this in my book The Global Bell Curve: Race IQ and Inequality Worldwide (2008).

Ethnocentrism and ethnic nepotism have nothing to do with that, no sir!  Lynn documents this by referring to…his own “work.”

Grégoire Canlorbe: Notwithstanding his early death following cerebral edema, martial artist and actor Bruce Lee may be seen as a successful case of Chinese-European crossbreeding. To what extent does the miscegenation between a white man (or woman) and a Chinese woman (or man) prove to be—generally speaking—more eugenic and healthy than the one between a white and an Arab or a Black?

The idea that you can justify miscegenation because of “look at that celebrity” is something the Left (or Derbyshire) promotes; it is the most juvenile and shallow type of “analysis” possible.  Look at Halle Berry!  Hubba Hubba!  That White-Back mixing is real eugenic and healthy!  I mean, these HBDers will say and do anything to promote their genocidal anti-White Jeurasian agenda.

Richard Lynn: Children inherit genes equally from both parents, and in large samples their children have the average of their fathers and mothers. Thus, if one parent has an IQ of 120 and the other has an IQ of 100, the average of their children will be 110. 

Evidence?  Well, you see 120 + 100 divided by 2 = 110, so that’s that!  HBD “science.”

But these are only averages, and there is a wide range of the IQs of siblings who typically differ by about 10 IQ points. With regard to mixed-race children, in my latest calculations, the Chinese have an average IQ of 105 and Whites have an average IQ of 100, so the average White-Chinese child will have an IQ 102.5. Arabs have an average IQ of 84 so Arab-White children will have an average IQ of 92, while blacks in sub-Saharan Africa have an average IQ of 70, so black-white children will have an average IQ 85, which is what they have in the United States. Of course, these are averages and there is a wide range of IQs in the parents and the children of all these groups.

Even IF these IQ scores are valid, and even IF IQ was completely genetic and heritable – which even Lynn himself does not believe, see below – why would anyone believe that the outcome of mixing is going to be in a simple additive fashion (even if averaged over large numbers of people)?  While some heritable traits do behave in a simple additive fashion, many, probably most, do not. To blithely assume that IQ is going to behave in such a fashion, in the absence of supportive evidence, is the height of childish stupidity.

Lynn’s retardation, and proof of my critique, is amply demonstrated by his own comment: “…while blacks in sub-Saharan Africa have an average IQ of 70, so black-white children will have an average IQ 85, which is what they have in the United States.”  “American” Blacks are not even 50:50 mixes of Whites and Black Africans – they are mostly African with a minority of White admixture.  Obviously then, if we take the IQ scores at face value, and even if we assume it is all genetic, it is NOT a simple additive model.  If American Negroes are ~ 80% African and ~ 20% European, how can you argue that a simple additive model of 100 IQ and 70 IQ is going to give 85 IQ?  Obviously, the genes for higher IQ are disproportionately influential or there has been selection or strong environmental influences.  Note that Canlorbe does not challenge Lynn about this obvious logical flaw.  Lynn is used to an “amen corner” of sycophants who agree with all his pontifications without a murmur of skepticism.  Obviously, this is not science.

Fourth, national IQs will continue to increase in economically developing nations. There may be some dysgenic fertility resulting in a decline in genotypic intelligence but this will be more than compensated for by improvements in nutrition, health, and education as it was in economically developed nations during most of the 20th century. 

Environmental effects, hmmm?

Fifth, there has been dysgenic fertility in China during the last half century. Despite this, there was a large increase of 15 IQ points in the intelligence of Chinese children from 1988 to 2006 as a result of improvements in nutrition, health, and education, and the average IQ of Chinese-British children in 2006 was estimated as 109.8.

Lynn admitting environmental effects on IQ…for Chinese.  For Europeans, well….no. And why assume that the Chinese immigrants to Britain were a representative sample of the main Chinese population?  This is all ludicrous – Lynn and his followers don’t even pretend to be doing real science, with hypothesis testing, skepticism, and controlling for variables. It’s a joke.

By 2016, the National Science Board reported that China had overtaken the United States in the number of articles published in science and technology.

Lynn of course leaves out that many of these articles are the result of rampant ethnic nepotism, with Chinese publishing in Chinese journals or in “Western” journals that have Chinese editors and reviewers (based on my observations, Chinese also engage in ethnic nepotism in grant reviewing). Ever read any of these Chinese articles?  Full of errors, omissions, sloppy methodology, lack of proper controls, incorrect interpretations.  But someone like Lynn is not going to critique shoddy scholarship, because that hits too close to home.

It is likely that this lead will grow as intelligence in China continues to increase, as it has in other economically developing nations, as a result of further environmental improvements. There is also likely to be an increase of intelligence in China with a reduction in air pollution which at present is lowering intelligence in many towns and cities. 

So here Lynn again admits environmental effects on IQ (see above).  Note that he defends Chinese IQ as being negatively influenced by environment, but he would never do the same for, say, Southern Italians (or the Irish).  Still think that HBD has no political motivation?

Thus, as intelligence continues to increase in China and decline in Europe and the United States, China is likely to emerge as the world’s superpower in the second half of the 21st century.

HBDers all spontaneously ejaculate.

HBD is the absolute worst “rightist” race-related paradigm. Virtually anything and everything else is better.  For example, Nordicism is, literally, infinitely superior to HBD.Nordicists at least ostensibly want to preserve, and promote in the interests of a subset of Europeans – “Germanics” of Northwest European descent.  HBDers on the other hand want Europeans humiliated and subjugated to Jews and Asians, and eliminated via a Jeurasian mongrelization.  HBD is the traitor within the gates; HBD is utter filth.

I deeply regret ever saying anything positive about the work of Lynn and Rushton; I do sometimes make errors, particularly in my early days as a Nutzi, and I openly admit these egregious mistakes.

BACKGROUND:
Although cell lines are an essential resource for studying cancer biology, many are of unknown ancestral origin, and their use may not be optimal for evaluating the biology of all patient populations.
METHODS:
An admixture analysis was performed using genome-wide chip data from the Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer (COSMIC) Cell Lines Project to calculate genetic ancestry estimates for 1018 cancer cell lines. After stratifying the analyses by tissue and histology types, linear models were used to evaluate the influence of ancestry on gene expression and somatic mutation frequency.
RESULTS:
For the 701 cell lines with unreported ancestry, 215 were of East Asian origin, 30 were of African or African American origin, and 453 were of European origin. Notable imbalances were observed in ancestral representation across tissue type, with the majority of analyzed tissue types having few cell lines of African American ancestral origin, and with Hispanic and South Asian ancestry being almost entirely absent across all cell lines. In evaluating gene expression across these cell lines, expression levels of the genes neurobeachin line 1 (NBEAL1), solute carrier family 6 member 19 (SLC6A19), HEAT repeat containing 6 (HEATR6), and epithelial cell transforming 2 like (ECT2L) were associated with ancestry. Significant differences were also observed in the proportions of somatic mutation types across cell lines with varying ancestral proportions.
CONCLUSIONS:
By estimating genetic ancestry for 1018 cancer cell lines, the authors have produced a resource that cancer researchers can use to ensure that their cell lines are ancestrally representative of the populations they intend to affect. Furthermore, the novel ancestry-specific signal identified underscores the importance of ancestral awareness when studying cancer.

Racial genetic differences mean that results obtained with cancer cell lines from one race may very well be NOT applicable to other races.  There are indeed racial differences in gene sequences and gene expression, with clinically significant implications for patients.

BACKGROUND:
We examined racial differences in the expression of eight genes and their associations with risk of recurrence among 478 white and 495 black women who participated in the Carolina Breast Cancer Study Phase 3.
METHODS:
Breast tumor samples were analyzed for PAM50 subtype and for eight genes previously found to be differentially expressed by race and associated with breast cancer survival: ACOX2, MUC1, FAM177A1, GSTT2, PSPH, PSPHL, SQLE, and TYMS. The expression of these genes according to race was assessed using linear regression and each gene was evaluated in association with recurrence using Cox regression.
RESULTS:
Compared to white women, black women had lower expression of MUC1, a suspected good prognosis gene, and higher expression of GSTT2, PSPHL, SQLE, and TYMS, suspected poor prognosis genes, after adjustment for age and PAM50 subtype. High expression (greater than median versus less than or equal to median) of FAM177A1 and PSPH was associated with a 63% increase (hazard ratio (HR) = 1.63, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.09-2.46) and 76% increase (HR = 1.76, 95% CI = 1.15-2.68), respectively, in risk of recurrence after adjustment for age, race, PAM50 subtype, and ROR-PT score. Log2-transformed SQLE expression was associated with a 20% increase (HR = 1.20, 95% CI = 1.03-1.41) in recurrence risk after adjustment. A continuous multi-gene score comprised of eight genes was also associated with increased risk of recurrence among all women (HR = 1.11, 95% CI = 1.04-1.19) and among white (HR = 1.14, 95% CI = 1.03-1.27) and black (HR = 1.11, 95% CI = 1.02-1.20) women.
CONCLUSIONS:
Racial differences in gene expression may contribute to the survival disparity observed between black and white women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Health disparity differences in outcome for breast cancer in White vs. Black women have a genetic basis.

Age at menarche (AM) and age at natural menopause (ANM) define the boundaries of the reproductive lifespan in women. Their timing is associated with various diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular disease. Genome-wide association studies have identified several genetic variants associated with either AM or ANM in populations of largely European or Asian descent women. The extent to which these associations generalize to diverse populations remains unknown. Therefore, we sought to replicate previously reported AM and ANM findings and to identify novel AM and ANM variants using the Metabochip (n = 161,098 SNPs) in 4,159 and 1,860 African American women, respectively, in the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) and Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) studies, as part of the Population Architecture using Genomics and Epidemiology (PAGE) Study. We replicated or generalized one previously identified variant for AM, rs1361108/CENPW, and two variants for ANM, rs897798/BRSK1 and rs769450/APOE, to our African American cohort. Overall, generalization of the majority of previously-identified variants for AM and ANM, including LIN28B and MCM8, was not observed in this African American sample. We identified three novel loci associated with ANM that reached significance after multiple testing correction (LDLR rs189596789, p = 5×10⁻⁰⁸; KCNQ1 rs79972789, p = 1.9×10⁻⁰⁷; COL4A3BP rs181686584, p = 2.9×10⁻⁰⁷). Our most significant AM association was upstream of RSF1, a gene implicated in ovarian and breast cancers (rs11604207, p = 1.6×10⁻⁰⁶). While most associations were identified in either AM or ANM, we did identify genes suggestively associated with both: PHACTR1 and ARHGAP42. The lack of generalization coupled with the potentially novel associations identified here emphasize the need for additional genetic discovery efforts for AM and ANM in diverse populations.

There seems to be genetic differences underlying reproductive lifespan in women of different races.  I hypothesize that Negro females would tend to possess variants promoting earlier reproduction.  Blacks and Hispanics have earlier puberty than Whites.
