More Chinese Spying

That Arctic Alliance in action again.

Read this.  Emphasis added:

The FBI in conjunction with the National Institute of Health is investigating the theft of U.S. biomedical research by scientists with links to China, according to the New York Times.

71 institutions, including some of the top medical research facilities in the U.S., are looking into 180 individual cases of possible intellectual property theftAlmost all of the individuals under investigation are of Chinese descent, some of them naturalized American citizens.

So far, 24 of those cases have been referred to the NIH inspector general with evidence of criminal activity.

“It seems to be hitting every discipline in biomedical research,” said Dr. Michael Lauer, deputy director for extramural research at the N.I.H.

Some of those under investigation have obtained Chinese patents for work owned by U.S. institutions and funded by the U.S. government, while others are suspected of duplicating U.S. research in secret laboratories in China. Redacted emails provided to the Times showed researchers apparently ferrying research items to China from the U.S.

“I should be able to bring the whole sets of primers to you (if I can figure out how to get a dozen tubes of frozen DNA onto an airplane),” read one email, referring to medical testing materials.

In January of this year, the U.S. Justice Department charged Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei with intellectual property theft and fraud.

Huawei poses a “dual threat to both our economic and national security, and the magnitude of these charges makes clear just how seriously the FBI takes this threat,” FBI Director Christopher Wray said at a press conference announcing the charges.

Copy, copy, copy, steal,steal, steal.  And yet the yellow supremacists tell us that these inscrutable Orientals are our  natural high IQ lords and masters.  Strange, isn’t it?

STEM, Patrik, Free Speech, and the Female

And other odds and ends.

Zman agonizes over “scientific theology” and how the Left has delegitimized genuine STEM. While his complaints are valid, what does he expect? The Right has always been anti-science, anti-empirical, faith driven, and full or irrational dogma-driven kooks. Thus, the Right has handed over STEM to the Left without a fight.

Yes, and the nonsense from the left tees up a reaction from the right. Vox Day and Owen Benjamin are seriously auguring flat-eartherism and fake moon landings. They have lost any faith in scientific authorities and for good reason. It’s understandable, but nonetheless get your kids vaccinated.

thezman

Someone told me one of them is now saying dinosaurs are a hoax.

Stina

I think the anti-dinosaur theories are interesting.

Not a serious subscriber to any theory, but my personal faves are demons (nephilim) and dragons.

I’m more skeptical of the claim that dinosaurs and humans didn’t coexist. And yea, with science in the place it is, we are seriously living in a post-science age.

Liars is how we got here.

David_Wright

Why, I’m pretty old and I don’t remember any such creatures.

Anyways, the troll Owen flirts with all nonsense. Not to say paleontology isn’t corrupt like many academic sciences.

George Orwell

I lost much respect for Beale when he started peddling the moon landing hoax shinola.

And, guys, if you depend on a piece of absolute filth like HBD shill race traitor Cochran to carry water for you in scientific debates, you have already lost. With the death of Harpending, you guys have absolute ZERO competent STEM folks on your side.  Me, I could have been on your side, but I’ve had enough of your retarded and destructive Der Movement, Inc. I care only about my own groupuscule; and all of you can just go to hell among your mix of HBD pseudoscientist hacks, science-deniers, moon landing hoaxers, flat earthers, Flintstone paleontologists, and “traditionalists” gibbering about Yogi Bear (“Kali Yuga”) and “the men who can’t tell time.” The Right, particularly the Far Right, actively rejects and repulses genuine STEM people. You can’t even retain foaming-at-the-mouth Nutzis like Ted Sallis on your side.  What does that say about you and your (lack of) dedication to scientific truth?

And I must say that the (Far) Right has a lot of chutzpah to accuse the Left of a blind-faith “theology” on science, when Der Movement is at least just as bad.

Also see this.

Again: The Right activity repels and repulses STEM people and other academics, and then they wonder about the dominance of the Left in the intellectual life of the West (or what passes for it).

When the whole Greta Thunberg thing erupted, I stupidly and naively thought to myself – “even Der Movement, with its insanely obsessive ethnic fetishism and ultra-Nordicist obsessions, won’t make Ladogan Greta into some sort of admirable “movement” heroine.  Even they wouldn’t go so far.”  Well, I was wrong.

So, when I now joke about Der Movement praising the Swedish homosexual anti-racist infiltrator of the Alt Right, Patrik Hermansson, I should probably reconsider and stop treating it is a joke. Likely they will start praising Hermansson. Let’s see how this can be done:

You see, Patrik became involved in HopeNotHate because of his noble idealism. Being derived from northern high trust hunter gatherers, Patrik’s racially superior disinterested propensity to societal consensus, and his rugged Nordic individualism, has made him prey to the dastardly machinations of greasy omnidominant Mediterraneans. Patrik is not at fault!  His natural propensity to heroism – of great benefit to all humanity! – has been hijacked, and once he returns to the fold of his people, he’ll put on his horned helmet, pick up his battle axe, and be a scourge against the scurrying swarthoids!  We need more men like Patrik Hermansson. 

Cue Durocher, TOO, and Counter-Currents….

Let us once again consider Inyoung You, now the new poster girl for MGTOW.  Emphasis added:

Rollins’ comments came as she announced that Inyoung You, a 21-year-old former Boston College student, was charged in an indictment with involuntary manslaughter for her boyfriend’s suicide.

You allegedly tracked the location of her boyfriend, Alexander Urtula, on May 20 and was present when he jumped from a parking garage just hours before his BC graduation, Rollins told reporters.

Girlfriend charged in Boston College student’s death after telling him hundreds of times; to kill himself, prosecutors say

Authorities said You was “physically, verbally and psychologically abusive” toward Urtula during their relationship. That abuse became more frequent, more powerful and more demeaning in the days and hours leading up to his suicide, Rollins said.

You sent him more than 47,000 text messages and prosecutors said she had complete and total control over Urtula. She repeatedly told him to “go kill himself” or “go die” and that she, his family and the world would be better off without him, officials said.
She also allegedly used manipulative attempts and threats of self-harm to control him and isolate him from his family, officials said.

Determining motive is an important part of a criminal prosecution.  Here are some questions the prosecutors should be asking, and ordinary men should be asking as well:

At what point in the relationship did You decide to drive Urtala to suicide?

Did You get involved in the relationship from the beginning with the objective of driving Urtala to suicide?

If You was present at the suicide, did she derive sexual satisfaction from watching it?  Did she orgasm?

What was the underlying motivation for these behaviors?  Anti-male hatred and envy?

Now, the White Knights – some of whom are homosexual – will have fainting vapors over these questions, but too bad. Given the facts of the case, and given the society-wide implications for judging general female behavior, these questions are wholly legitimate.

As regards Durocher’s comments about how women nag men to enforce (the female perception of) social norms, we can consider the implications for the specific case of women being allowed to participate in racial activism.  Will they behave the same way there?  Will female activists nag male activists to be more moderate, be less radical, accept a feminist perspective, accept “based” non-Whites, accept Neocon agendas, etc?  Consider how the French Front National was emasculated and wrecked by Milady Marine, Queen of Mainstreaming, and all for naught, leading to a humiliating electoral defeat.  Any lessons learned there?

An effective answer to the moronic shitheel Jeelvy, who is, by far, the worst and most juvenile writer in the history of racial activism.

This is the dire reality of today.  Meanwhile, the grifters tell you that victory is just around the corner just as long as you send in the “D’Nations.”  After all, life is expensive in those blue state utopias – all those gym memberships, movie tickets, and visits to Europe (that, curiously, the leading grifters can do with impunity while Taylor and Spencer are banned) – you guys gotta pay for it.  Give dem dere shekels!  After all, those who give live in the golden age today!  Savitri Devi will thank you for it!  By the way, isn’t it interesting that all these “traditionalists” who love Evola are pro-feminist White Knighters who oppose the very “traditionalist” ideals they profess to believe in?

Also note Trump’s Homeland Security is proposing censorship of his own supporters.  Trump: A man of genuine greatness – sincere genuine greatness!

By the way, a defense of free speech from this blog from several years ago – see here.

We need politics – all our “metapolitical” grifters do nothing but waste money that could have been used more effectively elsewhere.

The Arctic Alliance marches on.

So much time, so much failure.

Racial Recapitulation Theory Revisited

Do aging human phenotypes recapitulate ancestry?

I previously posted about this idea; please read it here. However, revisiting it is not only useful for newer readers, but every iteration of the idea expands and extends the analysis, allows for more ideas to come forth, more hypotheses to be tested, and more possibilities to be discussed and evaluated.

Read this about recapitulation theory:

The theory of recapitulation, also called the biogenetic law or embryological parallelism—often expressed using Ernst Haeckel’s phrase “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny”—is a historical hypothesis that the development of the embryo of an animal, from fertilization to gestation or hatching (ontogeny), goes through stages resembling or representing successive adult stages in the evolution of the animal’s remote ancestors (phylogeny). 

The idea of this post is this: Aging human phenotypes recapitulate ancestry.  In other words, as people age, their physical appearance (and perhaps other phenotypic markers including behavior) tend to reflect to greater or lesser degrees certain aspects of their ethnoracial ancestry.

Imagine a Greek-Danish hybrid.  Perhaps they look (and act?) “more Greek” when younger and “more Danish” when older.

Mono-ethnic individuals can display such trends; after all, modern ethnies are derived from mixtures of older stocks.

Here is a young Benito Mussolini, who looks remarkably like the Mexican General Mapache from The Wild Bunch, Mapache with obvious Amerind ancestry.

We can compare that to pictures of the Duce taken in later years:

Mussolini obviously looked more typically European as he aged.

This phenomenon may be restricted to just physical appearance, or, more interestingly, behavioral changes may track with appearance over time (see below), associated with phenotypes reflecting ancestral stocks. An individual may be a greasy, undisciplined southerner as a youth and a restrained, more gracile northerner in older age.

Does this tracking of ancestral phenotypes with aging follow a specific direction as does the ontology-phylogeny association (in that case toward greater evolved complexity and toward the final form of the organism)?  

In Mussolini’s case you can say that the direction was toward a more gracile and “northern” phenotype (but not by much, truth be told), although the coarseness of aging to a large extent counteracts any racial gracilization that occurs (perhaps this is why it is “not by much”), or from Mediterranid to Alpinid, or, perhaps more properly speaking, from East Mediterranean/Levantine toward a more West Mediterranean/Central European focus.  

That may be a specific case and not generalizable, or it may reflect some underlying trends, at least for some Europeans, as well as for people of part European descent (such as Ted Williams).  Here we see a young Ted Williams, who looks ready for a zoot suit riot; on the other hand, a John Wayne-esque older Ted Williams reflects more of his paternal heritage. Williams was of mixed British Isles (Welsh, Irish) and (diverse) Mexican ancestry.  

Getting back to Europeans – Mussolini was Northern Italian. What about a Southern Italian? A young Joe DiMaggio (Sicilian ancestry) looks like a S. Italian zip; an older Joe DiMaggio looks like a N. Italian banker. All anecdotal evidence to be sure; but provocative nevertheless.  A wholly Northern European celebrity?  Perhaps Sean Connery would be instructive here?

Does the same hold for unmixed non-Europeans?  Who knows?  Does it require some threshold level of different underlying ancestries and, if so, how far back?  Racial purity in the absolute sense it a myth, and, once again considering Europe, if you can far back enough all Europeans are mixes of different tribes or proportions of Hunter-Gatherer, Neolithic Farmer, Steppe, and other elements. In a case of someone of perhaps less “recent” “admixture” would they recapitulate their proportions of those ancient ancestral source populations?  These are all fruitful questions for more study.

Individuals of mixed race, crosses of different continental population groups, would be expected to show similar patterns of phenotypic change with age.

What could be possible mechanisms for this phenomenon?  Epigenetic changes with age? Hormonal changes with age, affecting gene expression (including by epigenetic effects)? Are there timed sequences of gene expression “cassettes” activated by some mechanism (including those just mentioned) that activate different phenotypic profiles at different ages.

Also, we can ask whether this phenomenon is just an emergent property of the complexities of gene expression from mixed ancestry, or whether there is some sort of selective pressure at work. Is reproductive success at younger ages emphasized by a less gracile, more “southern,” more r-selected type phenotype, and then, with increasing age, and the need to provide for family, to be a stable provider, to increase fitness of grandchildren and the extended family, and/or group selective mechanisms for prudent group activity, older people expresses a more k-selected, gracile, restrained, “northern” phenotype?

Does this imply that behavioral changes accompany the changes in physical appearance? The impetuous energetic youth looking more like a greasy swarthoid, and the same individual in a more prudent old age, looking more like the centroid of the European phenotypic range (for Europeans)?

No doubt, we can find pictures of people who look less racially gracile with age.  So, for the theory in its broadest sense, phenotypic change with age is key, not necessarily becoming more racially gracile with age. It may not even be a matter of a unidirectional trend – toward either greater or lesser racial gracility with age. One could imagine a situation where a person, at different stages of their life, reflects different aspects of their ancestry in their phenotype, possibly fluctuating back and forth between different degrees of racial gracility. 

How long does it take for these changes to occur?  Decades would certainly be enough time.  But less than a decade? Years?  I would think that changes may not be so noticeable for periods less than ten years.

John Lindsay, Durocher, and Eyetalians

In all cases, emphasis added.

Lindsay was born in New York City on West End Avenue, to George Nelson Lindsay and the former Florence Eleanor Vliet.[1] He grew up in an upper-middle-class family of English and Dutch descent.[2] Lindsay’s paternal grandfather migrated to the United States in the 1880s from the Isle of Wight,[1] and his mother was from an upper-middle-class family that had been in New York since the 1660s.[2]

…the patrician Lindsay’s two terms as mayor of New York were a catastrophe from which the city, and even the nation, have still not entirely recovered. The pure embodiment of the elite orthodoxy of his day, Lindsay helped transform the debate on race in America with an agenda that provoked white flight from cities, welcomed militant black separatists into the mainstream, and introduced a vision of social welfare that encouraged dependency among the poor and nearly destroyed New York’s economy. 

Four-term congressman Lindsay catapulted into the limelight during the 1965 New York mayoral race, when his walking tours of Harlem and other black neighborhoods helped him capture 45 percent of the black vote and win the election-a remarkable achievement for a Republican from Manhattan’s Silk-Stocking district. His neighborhood forays later helped New York avoid the ugly race riots that afflicted so many American cities during the sixties. 

But during those tours, Lindsay made common cause with black militants like Sonny Carson, whose followers spouted viciously anti-white and anti-Semitic diatribes. The militants were restless for power, and Lindsay gave it to them. Appointed vice chairman of the Kerner Commission studying race riots in America, it was Lindsay who persuaded his colleagues to declare that racism was entirely to blame for the ghetto’s problems. The commission’s report helped push America away from an inclusive urban agenda that emphasized racial integration and toward a divisive, counterproductive one that stressed black power and community empowerment…

…Lindsay reshaped the notion of public assistance, previously considered a short-term safety net; anything more, in FDR’s prophetic words, risked becoming “a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit.” Lindsay funded seminars on how to recruit ever more welfare recipients, abandoned screening of applicants’ eligibility, and set no time limits on benefits. Under his welfare commissioner, “Come and Get It” Mitchell Ginsberg, welfare rolls doubled, even though black unemployment was just 4 percent when Lindsay first took office. 

To pay for this, Lindsay instituted New York’s first-ever personal income tax, and he hiked corporate taxes. Otherwise, he showed little interest in the private sector. Unsurprisingly, New York’s now tax-crushed economy crashed at the start of his second term…Lindsay was so convinced of the moral justness of his cause that he dismissed anyone who questioned him (especially any outer-borough white) as a bigot, and rushed ahead with his ideas. Their unintended consequences still haunt New York, and the nation.

Yet Lindsay’s controversial legacy–a battle to improve the lot of the city’s poor, even if it came at the expense of the white middle class–continues to influence New York City’s political life.…he backed economic programs to aid blacks and Latinos but ran afoul of white ethnic voters outside Manhattan who felt threatenedLindsay pushed for integrated housing in white neighborhoods, only to spark a firestorm of protest… 

…“To this day, when you mention Lindsay’s name to a lot of people in Queens and Brooklyn, you get a nasty response,” said political consultant Hank Sheinkopf. “His name is synonymous with white flight to the suburbs and a sense among some whites that New York didn’t care about them.” 

“Let us not be so generous about who it was he was confronting,” said Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.), who was Lindsay’s human rights commissioner. “These were not just folks who wanted to make sure that everything remained stable. These people [white ethnics] said, ‘Not a one of them [blacks] in this neighborhood.’ It’s difficult to find an accommodation with that.”

Thus, the Anglo-Negro-Jew alliance to destroy White ethnics. That a few Jewish schoolteachers may have suffered means nothing – just some collateral damage.  The main mass of Jews were right on board the Lindsay Train (air-conditioned for kosher comfort). And, no, I don’t believe that guys like Lindsay were merely naive.  How could they not know what they were doing?  It was pure ethnic aggression – using Blacks and Hispanics as potent biological weapons against the hated White ethnics. And what weapons!  More destructive than an atom bomb – just compare Detroit or Baltimore to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. By the end of Lindsay’s mayoralty, the South Bronx looked worse than the outskirts of Hiroshima after Little Boy.  He knew exactly – exactly – what he was doing.  It was pure, unadulterated maliciousness.

Gee, Durocher finally mentions East Asian admixture in Northern Europe. His interpretation, his context, about this will of course not be surprising to readers of this blog:

We can then expect that this typically Nordic combination of genetic uniqueness and quality healthcare systems will prove beneficial to humanity as a whole.

They may be admixed, but, by gummint, they’re beneficial – beneficial, I say! – to humanity as a whole. And don’t you forget it!  


Hilarious.  And so utterly predictable.

And note the focus on Finland, as if clines of genes frequencies respect political borders. Bromstad and Bjork are not Finnish. Or Russian. Or Hungarian, etc.  


Sallis’ Law in action again – from this Durocher article on Finns, a comment includes:

And I guess there is something to preserve in having people who, of Europeans, are genetically as far as possible from Italians.

Come now, no matter what an article is about, we gotta fit dem dere dagoes in somewhere, preferably with a negative connotation.


And from another comment:

Actually, minus the refugees, crime and aggression are low in Finland. Judges are not blown up like they are in Sicily. There is no widespread organized crime in Finland. Whereas New Jersey and other East Coast cities have always had to deal with the mafia, the heavily Finnish Minnesota and Upper Michigan never did.

Keep in mind, the article was about not about Italians. But, hey, it doesn’t matter.  The article could have been about the cost of orange juice in Nebraska, and the wops would fit in somehow. The cost is lower in Nebraska, you see, because there are no racially mixed Arabic-Negro MENA Sicilian mafiosos controlling the orange juice trade.  Dat right!


The fetishists seem to think about nothing else, day or night, than (Southern) Italians.  What would they do if the wops never existed?  Well, there’s always the Portuguese, I suppose.

The not-so-secret secret of Der Movement is that it has Italians – at least Southern Italians – at the bottom of the racial hierarchy. They are the people about which nothing positive is ever said or written.  After all, the Jews are praised for their high IQ, the Negroes for their athletics and music, even the Australian Aboriginals are praised for their spatial skills.  But the wops?  They are just little greasy five foot tall superstitious roaches, scurrying around, desperately trying to avoid Humphrey Ireland’s frantic foot stomping.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate physical attractiveness in women with and without endometriosis.

DESIGN:

Case-control study.

SETTING:

Academic hospital.

PATIENT(S):

Three hundred nulliparous women.

INTERVENTION(S):

Assessment of attractiveness by four independent female and male observers.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S):

A graded attractiveness rating scale.

RESULT(S):

A total of 31 of 100 women in the rectovaginal endometriosis group (cases) were judged as attractive or very attractive, compared with 8 of 100 in the peritoneal and ovarian endometriosis group and 9 of 100 in the group of subjects without endometriosis. A higher proportion of cases first had intercourse before age 18 (53%, 39%, and 30%, respectively). The mean ± SD body mass index in women with rectovaginal endometriosis, in those with other disease forms, and in those without endometriosis was, respectively, 21.0 ± 2.5, 21.3 ± 3.3, and 22.1 ± 3.6. The median (interquartile range) waist-to-hip ratio and breast-to-underbreast ratio were, respectively, 0.75 (0.71-0.81), 0.76 (0.71-0.81), and 0.78 (0.73-0.83), and 1.15 (1.12-1.20), 1.14 (1.10-1.17), and 1.15 (1.11-1.18).

CONCLUSION(S):

Women with rectovaginal endometriosis were judged to be more attractive than those in the two control groups. Moreover, they had a leaner silhouette, larger breasts, and an earlier coitarche.

Counter-Currents Goes Full Retard

The Counter-Currents threat.

Absolute Nordicist crap coming from the HBD “West Coast White nationalism” Counter-Currents blog.

Today, less than half of Greek Y-chromosomes are of European origin…

Imbecilic.  Whose definition of “European Y chromosomes” are you using? 

See here.  Let me guess – NRY found at high levels in Northern Europe are “European.” Those found at higher levels in Southern Europe are – of course! – “non-European.”  In fact, note that while there are differing frequencies, on a qualitative level there is overlap between the major types between North and South.

The cities St. Paul visited in his missionary travels and to which he wrote – Corinth, Thessalonica, and Athens – were no more necessarily Greek than New York City is Dutch because Dutchmen lived there three hundred years ago.

The Kempian argument.  Unfortunately, population genetics doesn’t agree, as the ancient Minoans and Mycenaeans were genetically most similar to modern Southern Europeans, including modern Greeks, with a major difference being that modern Greeks have some degree of Slavic admixture.

And then:

The results of mass immigration and racial intermarriage can be seen in portraits that survived the destruction of the Italian resort-town of Pompeii in the first century AD. By that time, Roman women were dying their hair blonde and using lead acetate to make their skin whiter, in an effort to mimic the appearance of the original Romans and the few surviving noble families. Regardless of what the citizenship rolls said at any given time, centuries of population transfer had made true Romans so rare as to be statistically insignificant.

In response, see this.  We have to await the official publication, but I doubt it’ll match Nordicist expectations. By the way, ancient Etruscan phenotypes represented at that time as shown here.

Counter-Currents is openly lying to you  

Counter-Currents is peddling the same rancid “movement” dogma, which is being disproved by science, and that has no historical validity whatsoever.

It is obvious that Counter-Currents is becoming a nexus of the worst aspects of the “movement” – sweaty ethnic fetishism, tin cup panhandling, homosexual apologia, and backwards “traditionalism.” The destructive nature of the Counter-Currents infestation of racial activism is going to have to be a focus of the EGI Notes agenda.  We’ll need to take a closer look at this den of grifters, HBD traitors, fetishists, and perverts.

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.

Race and Science in Der News, 6/26/19

In der news.

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.
