    The German soldiers of World War II have often been portrayed, both during the war and in the decades since, as simple-minded, unimaginative and brutish. Hollywood movies and popular U.S. television shows have for years contrasted confident, able and “cool” American GIs with slow-witted, cynical and cruel Germans. “Propaganda is an inescapable ingredient of modern...

    I would classify the Marines as "Elite" (with Rangers, Paratroopers etc)
    The US Army, I believe had a tendency to wait for artillery, tank or aircraft support, before committing to any too challenging engagement....

    True. I was commenting about the regular “leg” infantrymen who made up the bulk of US infantry strength in WWII. The US Army did indeed believe in massive artillery support before an attack (the Germans had great respect for the artillery arm of the US Army). Close air support was particularly effective against the superior German tank forces and air superiority also allowed air reconnaissance that allowed ground commanders to avoid the surprise counter attacks favored by the German army. The US commanders seemed undaunted by the inferior medium tanks they used against the heavier German tanks, apparently believing that aircraft and tank destroyers would do most of the anti-tank combat.

    Agree.

    The role of US artillery, as any artillery in fact, has been conveniently neglected in all blabbing about WW2.
    Or any war in fact.

    Not eye catching and book/movie inspiring as the rest I guess.
    No glamour there.
    No topics for "feel good" chat about war over refreshment.

    Besides, could give future cannon fodder (interesting, a) the true nature of modern wars.
    Could make them think.

    I can't say about the German soldiers being better.
    Sounds reasonable, but such comparisons are as hard to make fairly as are claims of drug efficacy.
    Certainly the Germans were better prepared.

    Some of their superiority might be home field advantage.
    I notice that the Confederacy outfought the Union repeatedly with less armament, but failed entirely at the 2 crucial attempts to invade the Union.
    Easier lines of supply and familiarity with the area explain the Confederate's record better than the idea of intrinsic superiority of their soldiers.
    Each side fought better on its own ground.
    So, also, I expect with the Germans, although I am not averse to the idea of their superiority.

    I more strongly object to the better weapons claim.
    Tanks, yes, but not aircraft or rifles.
    The German infantry was equipped with bolt action rifles while the American was equipped with the semi-automatic M1 Garand.
    The introduction of the P-51 fighter in the middle of the war ensured the Germans lost air superiority.

    When it comes to technical innovation and the support equipment which turned out to be at least as important as the weapons, there's no contest.
    Radar, code breaking, espionage, transport, sonar, and the Manhattan Project beat the German advantage in rocketry, jet planes, and machine guns.
    This isn't to say that German engineering and design weren't superior.
    They were and may still be, but who could beat a country which could muster the means to put a radar set inside an anti-aircraft shell in an age of vacuum tubes?
    This while the Germans were still using horses to transport artillery.

    All true; furthermore, the US Army’s infantry is not made up of elite troops (as was the German Army’s infantry). The US had an enormous fleet and strategic air force that used up a large supply of the available elite manpower. The US tactic of combined arms (using infantry, artillery and armor supported by tactical air units) was able to overcome the German superiority in infantry and armor (admittedly at high cost).

  • I have good memories of 1975. I got my first secure job, a Lectureship in Psychology at the Middlesex Hospital Medical School, part of the University of London. It was a glorious summer, followed the next year by an even better and drier one, and I finally finished my PhD. Little did I realise that...

    I just returned from a one week trip to Norway where we were in Oslo and a rural area (Valdres) further north. My impression, in talking to cousins and others is that no one has to struggle if they don't want to. If someone chooses or is unable to work, they are paid enough to live comfortably.
    I met a farmer who owns land on the steepest of mountainsides and rents flatter land in the valley to grow hay for his sheep. This style of farming would not be viable in North America and only survives with generous government grants. They have the best in farm equipment and buildings.
    I saw migrant/refugee families shopping at well stocked grocery stores and they looked like they had just won the lottery.
    The Norwegians are very kind and seem happy but their society suffers from the same malaise that has infected most of Europe. Most people rarely have more than one or two children. Seeking diversion and personal fulfillment is the ultimate goal of most in this wealthy nation. How else could a country of five million win the winter olympics?

    This is also my impression after a recent visit with relatives in Norway. A malaise of wealth and a pre-occupation with spending time at one’s mountain hytt or Rhodes.

That forgetfulness especially applies to the history of others. How could their past, way back when, have any meaning for us today? Well, it just might. Take the European conflagration...

  • "There is no Republican Party. There's a Trump party," John Boehner told a Mackinac, Michigan, gathering of the GOP faithful last week. "The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere." Ex-Speaker Boehner should probably re-check the old party's pulse, for the Bush-Boehner GOP may not just be napping. It could be comatose. Consider....
  • Trump may have conquered the GOP but like the Manchus who conquered China, he is in danger of going native. He is increasingly Zionist, has forgotten about his promises to scale back on our foreign commitments and has embraced the tax cuts panacea so characteristic of the GOP.

  • I don’t believe I’m exaggerating when I say that Kevin MacDonald’s Culture of Critique is one of the most important books of our age. Despite this fact, it has garnered remarkably little attention in traditional spheres, particularly academic circles. Of course, the reasons for this are obvious — the book is critical of Jewish behavior,...
  • Derbyshire got on the wrong side of the Jews with his frank writing about blacks and their behavior and no amount of philo-Semitic commentary will get him out of that doghouse (racial realists are all Nazis, you see.)

  • The explosion of autism diagnoses in the last thirty years is due not aged fathers but to the reckless vaccination policy pursued during that period. Autism is an auto-immune phenomenon in which the microglial cells of the brain become activated by multiple exposures to vaccine antigens and to the toxic metals (aluminum and mercury) used as preservatives and adjuvants, causing them to become stuck in a “cell danger response” that prevents normal cognition. Absent the vaccines, there would be few cases of autism, just as there were prior to the vast expansion of the vaccine schedule.

    Another vaccine loony! Let me offer a different proposal that is starting to gain some clinical traction but is VERY hard to study. Not because it is hard to study, but because it is politically hard to study.

    First off to shoot your vaccine lunacy full of holes, vaccination is now about a century old. Strangely, autism did not rise until very recently. So then like any good scientist we look at variables. What has changed?

    Mothers are FAT. Full stop. Your baby is basically YOU. When your body is a toxic wasteland of blood sludge what else would you expect? There have been a few studies now with some association between the land whale obesity epidemic and babies born on the spectrum. You won't see any DIRECT studies because that would require westerners to put down their Big Macs and Supersize Fries. That ain't gonna happen...

    Secondarily, what else is different? We are being absolutely positively bombarded with higher and higher frequency EM radiation every few years. Supposedly no cell damage can occur because it is non ionizing but I wonder if anyone has turned a 4G or 5G signal on for a decade near tissue to study it? We also see its negative effects in mice already so the myth of only very high end EM emission causing issues is starting to be disproven with prolonged exposure like we face today. It is literally all around you 24x7x365.

    Lastly, people are getting pregnant much older, and in some cases, dangerously older age. The three things listed above would have absolutely profound effects on the development / birth cycle if taken in isolation. When you mix them into a stew like today? Get real... vaccinations, just stop.
    , @Homo Excitavit
    The reasons for the explosion of autism diagnoses are very simple : expansion of the criteria permitting an autism diagnose and better knowledge and higher awareness of asperger's syndrome. decades ago, high-functionning autism was barely recognized by parents and school personel. Since then there has been a lot of research and as autism became better understood, the different variations of it became better recognized and new variations were found.

  • @Miro23
    Why are the Zionists targeting Iran? Whitney comes up with the two basic reasons:

    1) Iran’s vast resources– natural gas and oil– which are situated at the heart of the strategically-critical Middle East, make it an irresistible target for imperial exploitation. Washington needs to keep its hand on the oil spigot to ensure that vital resources continue to be denominated in the world’s reserve currency, the dollar, and recycled into US debt.
     

    2) Ostensibly, the strategy will focus on “Iran’s nuclear drive, its missile programs”, and the activities of its military abroad. In reality, however, Trump has aligned US policy with Israel’s openly belligerent approach which regards Tehran as a sworn adversary that must be defeated in order for Israel to become the dominant power in the Middle East, the regional hegemon. Check out this blurb from Business Insider:

    “Quoting the Israeli officials, Channel 10 said that the meeting confirmed that the US and Israel “see eye to eye on the trends and processes in the region,” and have now reached agreement on the strategy and policy required to deal with them.” (“The US and Israel reportedly signed a secret pact to take on Iran”, Business Insider).
     
    Europe could prevent this disaster by facing off against the US/Israel (is there a difference?) and giving full support to the nuclear agreement that they signed. A radical start would be an alternative to the SWIFT clearing system, replacing it with one based on a Euro reserve currency (the Euro currency has good depth and stronger fundamentals than the US dollar) and gaining financial independent from the United States.

    Iran would have full banking access, and the US/Israel would have to work out how they're also going to start a war on Europe.

    It’s not gas and oil driving this policy, it’s water. Iran supports Hezbollah and Hezbollah has prevented Israel from seizing the water resources of southern Lebanon.

Of course, the reason the system persists is that it channels resources from the poorer to the richer and the richer call the tune.

Polls consistently showed that large numbers of his voters disliked him as a person and didn't really trust him but voted for him anyway. Now he's at 60% disapproval in Iowa and 52% approval in Mississippi. Not really a good place to be.

    This is all a part of Identity Politics, that intellectually poisonous ideology. They are useful idiots. The democratic party has been manipulating & exploiting these morons for years. Elites generally have supported it: simple divide & rule strategy. Sheep all, fleece them or flay them.
    However, these idiots have little or nothing to do with Marxism. "Culture" is a secondary, if not tertiary issue for genuine Marxists. Race & gender are NOT primary categories.
    Cultural Marxism is actually POST MODERNISM & PROGRESSIVISM. It helps no one to confuse these ideologies. (Of course "cultural Marxism" is "sexy": plays well to that whole American fear & loathing of communism)

    You are correct. It is also significant that CM is also dogma with corporations and corporate-funded NGOs.

    Ancestry DNA tests are difficult to take too seriously on that level of precision. You can identify commonality and affinity of various genome markings to establish probabilities of common ancestry, and haplogroups such as the Y-chromosome and mtDNA are even better, but they are only two haplogroups. If you are of white European phenotype but have one Japanese ancestor say a dozen generations back any genetic trace of that ancestor could very possibly be bred entirely out of you. What the findings tell you about your family history depends on what you are looking for, and the more of your ancestors you can get tested the more complete a picture you will have.

    These results must be taken with a very large grain of salt, e.g.,my 23and me profile estimates that I have 25% Irish/British ancestry, with an estimated time slot of 1830-1890 for that ancestry to have entered my gene stream (much to the delight of my spouse, who actually is Irish/British). I actually have not a drop of either since the early 17th century, which is as far back as I can trace my ancestors (assuming my ancestresses were the virtuous women I am sure they were).

  • @jesse helms think-alike
    Dusty's performance was good but had nothing to do with real autism. William Christopher, Father Mulcahey on MASH wrote a book about his real life experience adopting an autistic child. The child didnt speak, didn't respond to his adoptive parents or anyone else. He passed his days rocking back and forth humming to himself while waving a hand in front his face. He did not make difficult calculations in his head or break the bank at Caesar's Palace. As he grew older he became violent attacking Christopher's wife who was his primary caregiver. They eventually decided that it would be best to commit him to an institution for their own safety. Real autism is a form of severe mental retardation. The recently invented "autism spectrum disorders" are inventions to lump together a real severe but rare disease with various degrees of social awkwardness , ineptness or self-absorption.

    By those wide definitions a certain internet blogger's recent obsession with unrealistic predictions of 100 billion Africans by the year 2525 edges perilously close to the autism-spectrum. Of course there wont ever be that many; they'll run out of food to eat including each other long before then

    So many lies in America-hating Philip Giraldi's article, hard to know where to begin. The first lie is literally in the first sentence of the article:

    The United States has been using lies to go to war since 1846, when Americans who believed in manifest destiny sought to expand to the Pacific Ocean at the expense of Mexico
     
    The Mexican-American War was provoked by Mexico, which refused to recognize the independence and annexation of Texas, even though the rest of the world and the vast majority of Texans were English speakers who supported joining the USA.

    Not only did it provoke the war generally, it fired the first shots, killing 11 of 70 American in a surprise attack with 2000 Mexican soldiers.


    The Saudis also have considerable blood on their hands by way of their genocidal assault on neighboring Yemen.
     
    There is nothing "genocidal" about the Saudis supporting the elected government of Yemen against Iran-funded rebels. The UN estimates 100 civilians are killed per month during the war, and that includes all three sides. Source http://bigstory.ap.org/article/43471432a8e949a7af6fc56928284d78/top-un-official-10000-civilians-killed-yemen-conflict

    This in a nation of 25 million. That is just about the least bloody civil war I've heard of. But Giraldi calls it "genocide" because he is a lying propagandist who hates America and wants to defame the side of the civil war we support.

    Finally, no surprise that Giraldi supports Qatar, funder of the Muslim Brotherhood and supporter of the Sharia-imposing former Morsi government of Egypt and the increasingly totalitarian Islamic dictatorship in Turkey.

    Dawkins went on to say that one of his former school masters “pulled me on his knee and put his hand inside my shorts,” and that to condemn this “mild touching up” as sexual abuse today would somehow be unfair.

    “I am very conscious that you can’t condemn people of an earlier era by the standards of ours. Just as we don’t look back at the 18th and 19th centuries and condemn people for racism in the same way as we would condemn a modern person for racism, I look back a few decades to my childhood and see things like caning, like mild pedophilia, and can’t find it in me to condemn it by the same standards as I or anyone would today,” he said.

    Plus, he added, though his other classmates also experienced abuse at the hands of this teacher, “I don’t think he did any of us lasting harm.”

    Thank you. This was brilliantly laid out by Frank Snepp. As he noted, the ARVN had quite a lot of beans and bullets on hand but knew at some point there would not be more forthcoming.

    I find it quite strange that the map of the "White World" which appears as a sort of preface to the article, does not include Russia. Of course Russia is a multi ethnic country, just like the US, but if you watch a clip of the May 9th Victory parade in Moscow, you will quickly realize that there is not a single black or arabic face to be found amongst the thousands of marching soldiers. On the other hand, any footage of the contemporary US army clearly shows that at least half the troops are black or hispanic. Also, the Russians have not been caught up in this mind-numbing refugee business like the West Europeans. There is zero constituency in Russia for absorbing millions of immigrants from the failed states of North Africa and beyond. This is not to say that the Russians are not tolerant of other people, but simply that they have first and foremost their own interest in mind. They are realists, and to date have not been blinded and deluded by the liberal ideologues who have led western countries down the path of self destruction. Perhaps that is why you left them out of this map of the white european world? At any rate I think that Russia is presently one of the last extant refuges for the hyperborean peoples of the earth.

    The Scottish clan chiefs had no title to their land which was held under feudal arrangements whereby the clansmen gave the chief their allegiance and fought (a chief required fighting men to defend his cattle) for him; in return they received land and a living. The English pacified the Highlands, making warriors superfluous, gave the chiefs legal title to their ancestral lands, which meant they could run it on a commercial basis or sell it off like any other property. Of course they stopped favouring the clansmen and ran the land for maximum profit, eventually almost all sold out and went to live in luxurious apartments in Edinburgh and London, much to the disgust of the clansmen who were displaced and pauperised. That is what I think is happening now, the people are having what they thought was their birthright sold off, but the legal system (still widely recognised as having a special truth-claim) does not recognise any such right to remain a majority, and the indigenous masses are completely helpless.

    The elite don't like their states being nation-states because homogenous populations could be the basis for a radical movement contending with the elite for power. Even though the the elite are the same ethnicity as the masses they don't think of themselves that way. States are primarily survival machines for the elite against external pressure from other states. The first elite target in the West was working class organisation, which has been largely dismantled, but the indigenous retained a potential to be organised as a nationalist political force that could challenge hyper-capitalism.

    When there is a serious external threat, as almost every state has faced throughout history, the elites might need the indigenous masses to fight. Germany is a great example of how once the state was safe (ensconced within Nato after Poland had joined) the elite began worrying about the ethnic homogeneity of the population. The German leadership were aghast at the Pegida marches at the beginning of this year, which brought it to a head. The elite decided a homogenous nation of ethno Germans was no longer necessary and as there was no external enemy the people represented a potential internal enemy of the state. The ethno German masses have become a potential enemy to the state so they are to be liquidated by unlimited immigration.

    Compared to pre-revolutionary Russia the West is a very heavily policed society in which the masses do not have the resources to organise or influence policy. Given the lack of meaningful opposition governments will continue to pursue elite objectives, slow but sure. I can't see any reason for them to ease up, which would be particularly dangerous now, so it is all but inevitable that white nations will cease to exist in a couple of generations.

    The process you described in Scotland was the Capitalization of the land. It is no coincidence that countries with a long history of Capitalism are also the lands committing suicide now. The modern Capitalists are just as eager to sell out their countries for profit as their Scottish predecessors.

    Jewish, I counted 35 of the 154*, or 23%

    This is sort of an iron law of American life (or was until recently - the next generation won't do as well due to intermarriage and other factors) just like the 1 SD spread in IQ between blacks and whites. Ashkenazim have earned 27% of the Nobel Prizes awarded to Americans, 25% of ACM Turing Awards, and 26% of the Fields Medals. Ashkenazic Jews, 2 percent of the US population, make up 30% of elite-college faculty, 30% of Supreme Court law clerks, and 27% of Ivy Leaguers, etc.

    These (including being a billionaire) are all "g loaded" activities. All of them are just a statistical artifact of the difference in IQ ( BTW, how many of the 154 were black?), not some nefarious plot by the Elders of Zion. If you shift a population mean almost 1 SD to the right, when you get out to the right tail their tail will not be as skinny by about 1 order of magnitude - instead of 1 in 500 having an IQ of 145+, you will have 1 in 50. So Jews show up in these g loaded occupations at about 10x their frequency in the general population. This is about as surprising at this point as learning that the sun rises in the east or that the gold medal for the 100M sprint has been won by a black guy. I could have given you that % right off the bat without all that laborious effort at counting 'bergs and 'steins. In fact I bet you missed a few and the real # was around 27% and not 23%.

    Ethnic nepotism and population concentration in the big eastern cities are the other terms of the equation.

  • @Ron Unz

    ” After all, pretty much everyone agrees that the Ancient Greeks—Achaicans, Ionians, and Dorians—were mostly the descendents of Indo-European tribes ”

    I’m not sure if that’s actually uncontroversial. Greek has a lot of non-IE words, there must have been a substantial pre-IE substrate.
     
    Well, I don't think anyone claims that the Ancient Greeks were pure descendants of the various Hellenic tribes that had swept down from the north, let alone that they didn't pick up lots of words from the peoples they conquered.

    In fact, I seem to recall that the Athenians in particular claimed they were actually the descendants of people who'd always lived on the Attic Peninsula (my memory might be playing tricks on me). And perhaps it's more than coincidence that their very well-known Attic pottery tends to show black curly hair and somewhat darkish skin. Meanwhile, most of the textual evidence for blond or red hair and blue eyes seems to come from descriptions of the various Dorian peoples, such as the Spartans and Thebans, as well as closely-related groups farther north, such as the Thracians and Macedonians.

    But just in the same way, nobody claims today's Germans are of 100% pure Germanic ancestry, and I have the impression they're considerably less likely to have blondish hair than Scandinavians.

    True based on my extensive travels and residence in Germany and Scandinavia. Much of modern Germany was once inhabited by Celts and also by the Latins who arrived during the Roman Imperium.

    "Celts" is a worthless term, and mostly cultural. The real story is told via haplotype distribution.

    All Western European groups are dominated by the R1b clade, with single digit percentages of either I1 or I2 mixed in (or both) for all Western groups North of Spain.

    The only difference is which subclade of R1b dominates. However, technically, I think of all R1b lines as racially "Celtic". By that metric, most Germans are racially "Celtic", the exception being Swedes who more or less see a minority majority percentage of I1 (and have a higher percentage of Slavic R1a than most other groups). True racial Saxons will have a majority line of I2.

    There is a strongly "germanized" R1b subclade that is a result of long-term interbreeding with Nords. These are the Dutch and wherever else his particular subclade dominates. However, they are still racially Celtic. They're just heavily mixed with Nords over a long term (leading to this particular subclade expression). Similar to Northern Scots, except with a longer history of Nordic genetic refinement. "Nordic Celts" would probably be the most accurate casual description.

    I'd also argue for gaining an eye for the relative degree of hominid mix in any one group or individual. This will likely be a more defining racial characteristic than mere haplotype, as we all descended from the first anatomically modern humans but then, later, these modern humans mixed with differing homnid groups - giving us differing racial types. Learn to see Neanderthal. Learn to see other, more rudimentary hominid genetic expressions in differing individuals and groups. Learn to see relatively pure modern human racial expressions.

    Take the "Celts" for instance, in Ireland. Using 19th century crude racial descriptions, there is the "Iberian" line of Irish who obviously have a higher than normal (for Europeans) degree of neanderthal admixture. Phenotypically, this is clear. This, combined with their perceived behavioral inadequacies, led to racial discrimination from the English. However, Ireland also has lines that have neanderthal admixture that is on-par with or even less than other European groups. Phenotypically, this is also clear, and understandable given a certain measure of island isolation as well as avoidance of the "Iberian" lines. Look to Ulster for these groups, for example.

  • @The Last Real Calvinist
    Interesting line of analysis.

    One correction, though: the Reformed Church in America is theologically very similar to the Presbyterians, but it is most decidedly not more liberal, assuming you're comparing the RCA to the largest Presbyterian body, i.e. the PCUSA, which is very liberal indeed.

    The RCA is essentially the transplanted Dutch Reformed Church in the USA, so many of its core congregants are clustered in places where Dutch immigrants settled, especially Michigan and Iowa. Many RCA churches in those areas are still theologically and socially conservative. Another Dutch-American-dominated denomination that split off from the RCA in the 19th century, i.e. the Christian Reformed Church, is even more conservative.

    There are, however, variations in the RCA. Its eastern churches -- mostly in New York and New Jersey, again where Dutch settlers congregated -- tend be quite a bit more liberal than their midwestern counterparts. Norman Vincent Peale's church, i.e. Marble Collegiate, in NYC, is a good example.

    Robert Schuller -- who was my homeboy; we're both from a Dutch-American stronghold in northwestern Iowa -- picked up on Peale's very successful 'positive thinking' line. But both Peale and Schuller were serious outliers when it comes to reformed theology and worldview: Calvinism and self-help-styled positive-thinking are an oil-and-water mix. Schuller was therefore mentioned with rolled eyes by most RCA members (although, truth be told, many were secretly kind of pleased one of their own was a near-household name spiritual celebrity).

    My late dear old dad was born in the Netherlands but raised in Sioux Center and Sioux City, Iowa. Years ago I asked one of my relatives if there were any non-Dutch in Sioux Center and the reply was “Yes, we had an Irishman there once but he’s married to a Dutch girl now.”
