Tucker Carlson isn’t one to shy away from going after the critics of President Donald Trump on his nightly Fox News show.But in a new interview with conservative Swiss magazine Die Weltwoche, the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host called out Trump himself for his boastfulness and for failing to keep his promises to his voters.“His chief promises were that he would build the wall, de-fund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare and he hasn’t done any of those things,” said Carlson, per The Washington Post.Carlson said he’d “come to believe” Trump’s role was “not as a conventional president who promises to get certain things achieved to the Congress and then does.”“I don’t think he’s capable,” Carlson explained. “I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus. I don’t think he understands the system. I don’t think the Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him. He’s not going to do that.”Carlson said it was “mostly” Trump’s fault that he hadn’t been able to deliver on his pledges, because “you really have to understand how” the legislative process works and “be very focused on getting it done.”″(Trump) knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do so. It’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things.

Hmm…Der Movement catches up eventually.
Now, Zman’s complaints are for the most part correct (if overblown); epigenetics is being grossly over-interpreted by both the Left and the Traditionalist Right.
However, as I wrote:
While I believe that epigenetic influences are grossly overestimated by ideologues of both the Left and Right, who have political reasons for de-emphasizing genetic determinism, it is wrong to lurch in the opposite direction and completely disregard potential epigenetic mechanisms.
We cannot completely rule out epigenetic mechanisms as a secondary, reinforcing, weaker mechanism for race-culture, the primary mechanisms being genetic differences and learned culture. By a crude analogy to physics, genetics and culture are “strong forces” (e.g., nuclear) while epigenetics is a weak force (e.g., gravity). But gravity, while being a weak force, is somewhat relevant to someone falling off a building. When dealing with objects with large mass, like the Earth, gravity is strong in aggregate; the same could be held for weak epigenetic influences that, if present over entire populations, can exert considerable racio-cultural force.
Having said that, my work over the years makes clear that I am NOT any sort of proponent of epigenetics as a significant factor in racial differences – those differences being CLEARLY genetic in origin. Thus, the EGI Notes post linked above spends 99% of its content discussing Gene-Culture interactions, with epigenetics as a side note.
In summary: Epigenetics may have a small and secondary but not completely insignificant role in reinforcing certain isolated and specific characteristics that are primarily determined by the interplay of genes and culture. However, the environmental influences that possibly exert effects through epigenetics must be consistent over time if you wish the epigenetics to be equally stable. Epigenetic effects of starvation, for example, can be passed down from parent to child but it is unlikely that this will be carried down endlessly through time…unless the Dutch are continuously subjected to famines every few decades. So, a consistent environmental factor could in theory continuously reinforce an epigenetic modification, but a one-off event is not expected to permanently alter a people’s epigenome. Of course, given shifting gene frequencies over time, and effects of selection, changing environments will alter a populations’ genome as well.
Another analogy may be useful here. Imagine an important book that describes Culture. The main content of the text, the main text, the vast bulk of the words, explanations, meanings, and arguments are the Genes. In contrast, Epigenetics would be the footnotes to that main text. Many of the footnotes would be relatively unimportant; however, several of them would be very important clarifications of the meaning of the main text. In subsequent editions of the book, one would find that the footnotes are changing more frequently (additions, deletions, modifications) than is the main text; every once in a while, a significant change in the main text happens and that would be a particularly important new edition of the book.
That, given what we know now, puts things in the proper perspective. The Traditionalists (and the Left) are wrong to elevate epigenetics as somehow the equal (or superior!) to genetics; the HBDers are wrong to equate the reality of epigenetics to crude Lamarckianism. Both sides are politically motivated. Real science keeps on investigating, though – speculating, hypothesizing, testing, and evaluating
And how about this analogy – the core reality of racial and cultural differences constitute the “genetics” of racial activism; while more ephemeral phenomena – influenced by people’s agendas – such as Traditionalism or HBD are the “epigenetics” of racial activism, mere footnotes (and in those cases, not clarifying at all).
Let us now consider some “words of wisdom” – dating from the mid-late 1990s – of a well-known “movement leader’ who shall remain nameless since this was from a private conversation.
First, with respect to the situation in Russia at that time, this “leader” suggested that it would be good if the Communist Party came back into power there, since they were “anti-Jewish” and “anti-globalist.” By that logic, the Islamic takeover of Europe is a good thing, since they are also anti-Jewish and anti-globalist.
Then, in response to my suggestion that this “leader” and his group utilize stock market investment (and other financial instruments) to grow their portfolio and hence have more funds for their activism – “no, I don’t want to do that, because playing the stock market is like gambling,”
Of course, proper fund investing, starting from that time and extending 20 years (until fairly recently) would have yielded an approximate 200% increase in funds. Other investments would have yielded a greater positive outcome.
Thus, I’m sure readers of this blog will be shocked – shocked I say! – to learn that Sallis was right and The Fearless Leader wrong. But, hey, keep on following these leaders because….affirmative action.
Oh, for godssakes:
Lord of the Rings is now being posited as a European meta-myth that can help guide us back from the brink.
I really do suspect an ethnic element in this – the “subracial soul.” What some of us see as tiresomely boring, juvenile, and pretentious, others see as the core around to build a “European meta-myth.” Sorry, friend, not all Europeans are buying it, only that fraction for whom “being snug in your hobbit hole” resonates as a “Faustian drive.” Sure enough, after all, burrowing into a hole in the forest and pretending to playact as semi-feudal “traditionalist” “hobbits” is better than all that scientific mumbo jumbo about “reaching the stars” (not Faustian that!) – we’ll leave all of that science and technics stuff to the Chinese, who will of course ultimately learn that they can’t power their steampunk starships because peak oil. But them, I’m just a crazy and bitter orc and hence to be ignored.
Those wild and crazy South Asian cognitive elitists:
…a curious anecdote he relates about his own Bengali immigrant mother. Supposedly, when challenged by another woman (presumably white) for having such a large family at a time of a “population crisis,” Salam’s mother responded that “she fully intended to have a large family so that she and her offspring would displace America’s native inhabitants, just as European settlers seized the lands of the American Indians.”
That my friends is the essence, the fundamental meaning, the underlying core, the reality of “HBD race realism” – arrogant Asians and Jews replacing Whites, dispossessing Whites, gleefully subjecting Whites. All promoted by the likes of John “self-admitted measured groveling to my Asiatic wife” Derbyshire. Delenda est HBD!
The lawlessness of the FBI, CIA, and DOJ beggar belief. I’m not kidding when I say creeps like Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Strzok, Rosenstein, and Mueller should be in the docket to answer for their crimes of treason.
So why does Trump do absolutely nothing?
In der news.
As if you need more evidence that Derbyshire’s genetic line is inextricably linked to that of China, and will likely become more linked over time, and if you need more evidence of who really wears the pants in the Derbyshire household. I realize the following argument is ad hominem, but still…why would you believe anything this fellow says about “HBD race realism?”
A spokeswoman for the California system, Dianne Klein, said on Wednesday that the university system did not consider race in its admissions process. “Neither race, ethnicity nor gender factor into U.C.’s holistic admissions policy,” she said.
The university is full of it: Believe me, “holistic admissions policy” is ALL about “race and gender.” It’s just a fundamentally dishonest way of getting around laws on open quotas.
I’m with Anglin on this – I’m starting to wonder whether the average woman even has a soul.
My comment on that no doubt would be different from Greg Johnson’s.
The Truth About Trump…and from Roissy’s own site, no less. Ouch. Emphasis added:
How can this purported blowback make anything WORSE?
Freedom of assembly and freedom of speech were proven to be dead by Charlottesville.
The Deep State is still rampaging over the supine form of Heritage America, stamping its face into paste with hobnail boots.
The police EXE CUT ED a guy for refusing to hand over his guns because of a bullshit red flag law, giving us a preview of horrors to come.
Trump is still in crosshairs of impeachment from the Dems, or worse. Illegal immigration is now HIGHER than under the critter Obama, because the spics have figured out the threats were hollow. Deportations are measly. There is no Wall. There probably won’t be a Wall. The Deep State villains we all know remain at large, free, well paid, influential, powerful.
Antifa is still prancing around, and to make matters worse, people who fight back when attacked by them are arrested as terrorists for defending themselves.
We lost the House and the Dems made a concerted effort to steal the Senate. The demographic situation is catastrophic and getting worse by the day. Even if Trump somehow rallies the same support in 2020 as in 2016 after this litany of flops and disasters, he might lose anyway simply because of the endless flow of scab voters into the USA.
As soon as Trump is out of office, he and his family are probably going to be hounded to destruction by their enemies.
All of the alleged Trump victories are invisible ones.
What in the fuck does Trump have to lose by going balls to the wall and calling on the genuine American people to support him?
I repeat, what “blowback” could be worse than this goddamn death spiral the country is in?
At this point, all this fancy shmancy “4D chess” “he has to go slowly” stuff ix just making excuses for Trump, ignoring that unless he gets off his ass and RISKS something to win, he’s either a weakling, fool, and jester who doesn’t have the balls to do what everyone with half a brain knows he needs to do, or he’s a sellout. Or both.
Who dares, wins.
Trump hasn’t dared a fucking thing for two years.
This isn’t a garden party where our side can sit and adjust their bowties decorously . This is a fucking totalitarian communist jew dictatorship overwhelming America and turning it into an unspeakable shithole in real time. There’s no point in waiting, because the blowback from doing nothing for a VERY short additional time will be equal to or worse than the blowback from anything he could do to try to change the situation.

The situation of America and Trump is like being on fire, and not using a fire extinguisher in your hand because you’re worried about the blowback from the flames if you make them angry by putting them out too fast.
It’s a recipe for ending up extra crispy with absolute certainty, rather than having at least a chance to escape only moderately burned.
You read it on this blog first, three years ago: Trump is a vulgar ignorant buffoon, a fraud, a Negrophilic cuck with Jewish family connections. His vaunted “extremism” is simply centrist common sense made “radical” because America has shifted so far to the left, and his only utility has been to stimulate chaos and balkanization because his bluster triggers SJW/Colored over-reaction. The man himself is a big fat zero – emphasis on fat.
In my mind, Roosh is basically White, and talking about him in this manner makes as much sense to me as expressing horror at the dusky Sicilians “miscegenating” with Swedes.
Quite obviously, the first and the latter two pictured are racially identical, if not that the first pictured is more White.
Der Movement marches on!
Roissy really wrote this; this is not a joke:
I chuckle thinking about Melania and Don’s marriage. They are in love with each other, but there’s gotta be some friction that heats up the bedroom. For instance, Melania is dressed to kill in Paris, living the dream, trying to impress Frenchies, soaking up the adulation…then her husband tweets the next day about the French almost speaking German.She’s exasperated, All her good will, politesse, and carefully chosen fashion statements for naught, because Don had to lay the smackdown on Maricon. Later that night, when they’re alone, she slaps him, maybe playfully, maybe not, a tear beginning to form. Don takes her in his arms….sympathizes, assures her he’ll be better next time…she straddles him.. “oh mr president….”
Does Catamite Roissy fantasize about his being in the place of Melania here?
Is this the most delusional post ever written? Trump is not going to do any of that He’s not capable; he’s not interested. If he’s not an overt far-left fraud and mole, then he’s the most low-energy, cognitively-challenged, weak and indifferent President we’ve ever had, making the likes of Milliard Fillmore into paragons of dynamic historical relevancy by comparison. Until we get ANY signs of political fire in Trump, expect more of the same: blustering juvenile tweets, a complete lack of action, and lots of Big Macs consumed.
Very cognitive. Very elite. The picture accompanying the article had me confused- the “woman” or the husband? Then I remembered what racial group we are dealing with here, so the lack of sexual dimorphism made sense.
In der news.
Is Donald Trump the worst human being on Earth? He eggs on his supporters to be subjected to physical attack and then selective prosecution if they defend themselves. He absolutely refuses to fulfill his constitutionally mandated law enforcement obligation against domestic terrorists, instead protecting the terrorists and persecuting their victims, the same victims he incites with his tweets. What a despicable, low-life worm he is.
But, hey, he really “negs” the women real good, right Roissy?
Why should you fund, like you know, infrastructure building, legal teams, opinion polling, research by people like Salter, or any of that? For shame! Pete and Johnny sitting on the lawn is where it’s at! And why shouldn’t Old Mophead get the lion’s share or “movement” money simply for editing a blog? Gee…it’s not like anyone runs blogs for free or anything, right?
Who are the morons who pay VDARE for doing what other people (including me) do for free? I understand that Brimelow has to support his family (and should be congratulated for producing a healthy share of White children, unlike Derbyshire), but what about writing another book? Alien Nation (which I purchased and read when it came out), was a useful contribution to the cause of immigration restriction. Why not do that? How about lobbying? Those would be respectable contributions. Or maybe I should just start the tin cup panhandling myself – in the interests of alliteration, we can call it The Sallis Swarthoid Solicitation.
Well, well, well….Roissy:
I’ve come to the (possibly premature) conclusion that Trump’s greatest accomplishment will have been getting elected.
Yes, Trump is halfway into this first – and possibly, only – term but let’s not be “possibly premature” or anything. On second thought, he has accomplished things – empowering Antifa, persecuting his own supporters, and eating junk food. MAGA!
Colored snowflakes, part I. At least the comments I read were decent.
Colored snowflakes, part II. Meanwhile, Whites are routinely subjected to race-based criminal attack; ever see inter-racial crime statistics recently?
Colored snowflakes, part III.
The Trump family marches on. Cue Roissy taking about all the “good genes” in the Trump mudsharking family. Jews, Arabs, Semites…oh my!
A news service that is representative of the future of humanity on our current course.
Very cognitive. Very elite. The Silk Road marches on!
Greg had better put his moderator’s hat firmly on for this one, or else the comments section will be filled with “Moops,” “racial admixture,” “True Romance,” etc. in the blink of an eye. Well…that would be more likely if the post had been up at, say, Chateau Heartiste or The Occidental Observer, though.
Do you think there may be a connection between this…
And this? Come now! The bias is completely irrational!
Donald Cuck. In all cases, emphasis added.
The Trump Administration immigration enforcement and criminal prosecution of immigration violations is collapsing across all fronts. It appears that Lady DACA (DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen) and others in the Department of Justice have decided that illegal immigration will have no consequences. Instead of aggressively confronting and punishing illegal immigration, the Trump Administration is now negotiating with caravan leaders to make their lives easier.
It appears that a complete collapse in the face of the caravan is likely in the near future, and for no apparent reason. Ridiculously, the Trump Administration is processing 100 of these asylum applicants and releasing them immediately. This is just the opposite of what the Administration should be doing…Sadly though, the Trump Administration is considering speeding up the processing and release of these illegal aliens.
Hmm…maybe Antifa Don Trump will nominate Dixon as his permanent Attorney General? Make Antifa Great Again!
Separately, Fields is charged with hate crimes in a 30-count federal indictment. Prosecutors in that case allege Fields espoused white supremacist ideals and denounced minorities on social media before traveling to Virginia for the rally. Once there, the indictment says, he drove his car into a crowd with the intention of hurting people he targeted based on his bigoted views.
Remind me who is the head of federal law enforcement again? Any answer, Roissy?
Well, well, well, even “Zman” gets it…albeit three years late. As openly stated on this blog back in 2015 – Trump is a fraud. He long ago finished the only good he has done – the chaos and balkanization – and now he’s just another rehash of Ronnie Raygun…and Nixon as well, Nixon being another one who triggered the Left with his personality, while at the same time actively promoting leftist policies and betraying his base.
Sallis knew this in 2015. All the quota queens and other idiots are belatedly realizing this three years later, and after the fact. Good judgment is knowing things in advance, not admitting the facts after reality has smacked you upside the head for years, forcing you to realize how wrong you’ve been (but they’ll never admit that part…about being wrong).
Was she killed by the Mozambique citizen she is posing with in the picture?
Disgusting essay shilling for the Christianity death cult at Counter-Currents.
More of the same.
Hood and Amren simply don’t get it.
You have to look at actions, not cheap rhetoric meant to mobilize voters. Based on action, on reality, Donald J. Trump is a far-left fervent supporter of Antifa; indeed, in a very real sense, Trump can be considered the de facto leader of Antifa. With leftist thug Sessions out of the picture, Trump now takes center stage as the leader of the far left. Make Antifa Great Again!
Finally, Roissy and I agree on something:
I dunno, maybe it’s time for White American men to politically divorce their White women, and accept that they will have to be the sole vanguard fighting at the front lines for America’s soul.
Got that Greg? No Joan of Arcs among the American yeastbucket population.
Trump betrays his base and turns his back on economic populism as he follows – like a fat lemming – his Jew son-in-law. Meanwhile, Roissy tells us how “funny” Trump is – after all, jackass tweets are what being a President is all about.
Hey, Mudshark Annie, I guess you don’t In Trump We Trust anymore, eh?
No surprise – after all, radical far-leftist Trump is expected to support big tech censorship.
Maybe Antifa Don Trump can get his Justice Department to charge the Marines with “hate crimes” and “serial rioting.” Make Antifa Great Again!
Even Jeb Bush, as President, would have by this time invoked “law and order” and cracked down on Antifa once they reached the point of attacking Marines, harassing Carlson’s family, and vandalizing Republican offices. Trump does nothing. Either Trump is so low energy he makes Jeb look like the Energizer Bunny in comparison or Trump actually supports Antifa – or at least doesn’t care less one way or the other.
Lemmings on the march.
See here. Spencer, November 2018:

The thought has crossed my mind that it is the GOP (not the Democrats) that must be defeated and demoralized for something better to arise in its place.
10:09 PM – 25 Nov 2018
….who wants the GOP to win anyway? They’ll just betray the Whites they dog-whistled to during the election. Instead, let is follow the Sallis Strategy: destroying the GOP by deepening the contradictions of a party that absolutely needs the votes of a people they despise and regularly betray.
Better late than never, Richie. Of course, the rank-and-file need to carefully consider why they follow “leaders” who are nearly three years behind the learning curve, instead of following those at the head of the curve. But, hey, we all know merit has zero to do with “movement leadership,” right?
Another installment of: wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong. Remember when Roissy and company were foaming at the mouth (and from other body parts) about Bolsonaro? The Brazil Emperor is cucking even faster than Trump. Of course, the real reason for the gamesters’ love of Jair is his “negging” of women. That’s what it’s all about, of course. Type Is marching on.
While I mock groups like the Proud Boys, what’s happening to them and the Rise Again Movement is troubling on many levels, particularly to someone like myself who advocates for the formation of a real movement that has a component a grouping akin to Codreanu’s Legionary Movement. Such groups are being targeted by the System – while allowing leftist domestic terrorists to run amok – and trying to form a better version of such groups under current conditions, with no change in approach, is like trying to force a square peg into a round hole, and is donned to failure. What is required is the interlocking, mutually reinforcing, multi-faceted approach I have advocated for years. This would include formation of a competent legal team, our own media, political campaigns and getting folks elected, infiltration of the System at various levels, high quality and sane metapolitical memes propagated to both the elites and masses – only under these conditions can the soil be readied in which healthy growth can thrive.
Oh, you’ll say – “there’s no money.” Nonsense. Stop funding the Happy Penguins lifestyle, stop funding rent-seekers and parasites, stop funding “frilly and silly things” for airhead e-thots, stop wasting support on the quota queen leadership, and then you will have the seed money for some of these projects. You’ll then say – “it’s too late” – but that’s the same mantra we’ve been hearing for the last 50 years. You see, it’s always “too late” – “the collapse of the System” is always “five years” in the future. Better late than never – it would have been optimal if these things were started decades ago, but what do you want from an incompetent, affirmative action leadership? True – you will need new leadership to pull this off, but if you are a reader here, you know that already, don’t you?
The Chinese allegedly perform human genetic engineering; Whites can meekly hide from the apocalyptic dread of science and technology. Traditionalism! Hey, if we’re lucky, our technologically dominant Oriental masters will keep a few Whites around as pets. Just like some child has a pet hamster snug in their little burrow, a Chinaman’s White pets will be snug, burrowed deep in their hobbit hole. Kali Yuga! The Age of Chopsticks! The Men Above Eggrolls!
Hey, this is “movement misogyny!” All those budding Joan of Arcs just want to make a living!
Some pepper spray used against violent invaders, and the Left goes ballistic and the Right goes onanistic. No, sorry – Trump said that rock-throwing and other acts of violence would be treated the same as a rifle attack – if so, why weren’t the troops ordered to open fire?
An opening for Roissy in the Trump administration.
From a recent Amren opinion piece:
The 2018 elections were a setback not just for Republicans, but also for advocates who hoped that white America would wake up to the growing threat.
But, but, but…Greg Johnson was telling us that the mid-term election outcome was a “victory” of sorts for Trump, for the GOP, and for Whites. My, my…there’s some disagreement in Quota Land. Someone’s gonna get labelled “crazy and bitter” real soon there!
