The Unfabricated History of Eugenics Below is a link to a book review of John Glad’s new book Jewish Eugenics\.

How Obama Thinks From Forbes 9/27/2010\. The entire article is available online\. But instead of readying us for the challenge, our President is trapped in his father’s time machine\.

Dawkins sides with the race realists. Richard Dawkins is one of the most prolific writers and defenders of evolution and rational thinking\. Still, I assumed from his books, speeches and articles that I am familiar with that he would fall into political correctness when it came to the issue of race realism\.

Absurd assumptions about life’s advantages Eugenics was universally condemned as being either cruel or pseudoscientific until genetic engineering and the human genome project made positive eugenics increasingly practical\. Now many on the Left argue that we must make reproductive technology available to everyone\. Others argue that genetic manipulations for the purpose of eugenic enhancement should… Matt Nuenke Sun, 28 Feb 2010 19:03 9 Fri, 04 Mar 2011 08:37
The Mormons and the Danite Order. I watched several hours of a documentary on “The Mormons,” a PBS special\. I have been aware of the Mormons or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints \(LDS Church\), but I have not taken the time to research this particular religion at any depth\.

Strange Fruit: Race, Identity Politics, & Ethnic Genetic Interests. Is race biological\?  Or is it a social construct \? The “debate” continues because it is political\.

Is it time to be open about Whites versus Jews? I have scanned excerpts from three books written by Jews about Jews—available here in a Word document format\: http\://www\.Neoeugenics\.net/jiap\.doc \. It seems that Whites need not even make any defamatory assertions about Jews—they do to each other quite regularly if only we connect the dots that are obvious to most… Matt Nuenke Thu, 10 Sep 2009 19:29 124 Tue, 06 Oct 2009 16:11

Revisiting Race in a Genomic Age The book Revisiting Race in a Genomic Age \(2008\) has numerous academic contributors—most or all on the Left\.

Rapidly Changing Human Evolution.

Silent Racism: How Well-Meaning People Perpetuate the Racial Divide, by Barbara Trepagnier, 2006. There are two factions that try to explain racial inequality\: the equalitarians that deny any differences in the essence of different population groups such as average intelligence, conscientiousness, forethought, etc\. and the Jensenist faction that studies heredity, twin studies, correlations between wealth and intelligence, etc\.

American Murder Mystery. An antipoverty program has apparently, again, gone terribly wrong\. It was thought that poor ghetto Blacks would have a better chance of escaping poverty if they lived not in public housing projects, but out in the real world alongside other renters and owners, closer to jobs, away from concentrated crime,… Matt Nuenke Wed, 02 Jul 2008 22:57 12 Mon, 14 Jul 2008 21:30

Jews shutting down debate. A recent article in the JEWISHJOURNAL\.COM entitled “The Professor the anti-Semites love,” is about the published works of Kevin MacDonald and is a good example of the techniques Jews use to ridicule and demean any publications they do not agree with\.

Sperm and egg donor registries. An article in the Chicago Tribune discusses the need for setting up a registry of egg and sperm donors\. The argument for such a need seems a bit odd\. The danger it seems is that a donor may have a condition that manifests itself later in life, like colon cancer,… Matt Nuenke Thu, 03 Apr 2008 23:01 2 Thu, 08 Jan 2009 23:18
Eugenics in a most unlikely place. It is common practice, now that eugenics in moving quickly within the science of reproductive genetics, to dismiss eugenics as pseudoscience\.

Five Minds for the Future by Howard Gardner, 2007 Howard Gardner and his team of researchers/propagandists have been pushing the theory of “multiple intelligences” since 1983, without empirical data\. They rely on anecdotal stories to show that all humans are equally intelligent—they just have different intelligences that each person has compared to others\. The primary purpose of this program… Matt Nuenke Fri, 22 Feb 2008 03:54 19 Wed, 03 Nov 2010 16:02

Some thoughts on genetic similarity. The book Family Relationships\: An Evolutionary Perspective, edited by Salmon and Shackelford, 2007, has some interesting insights into genetic interests, social and sexual selection, and directed evolution\.

Pseudoscience of Intelligent Design is similar to the assumption of racial equality. One of the most perplexing dilemmas for me is trying to come up with mechanisms, articles, programs, etc\. that could open up a true debate on the heritability of intelligence\. Since The Bell Curve, all of the empirical data has supported Jensenism/hereditarianism while the equalitarian/naïve environmentalists have taken up the… Matt Nuenke Tue, 11 Dec 2007 00:18 56 Sat, 29 Dec 2007 18:32

Diversity leads to a loss of social capital. Months ago it was announced that Robert D\.

Global warming—some speculations. In the book The Skeptical Environmentalist by Bjorn Lomborg, it was clear that one fabricated environmental disaster after another was irrelevant to the quality of life\.

Now the rage is organic… Matt Nuenke Wed, 04 Jul 2007 15:21 31 Sun, 02 Dec 2007 05:01
Postmodernism and the New Right. Tomislav Sunic’s new book, Homo Americanus\: Child of the Postmodern Age, is a call to bring back racialism, anti-egalitarianism, balkanization, etc\. in large part by using the rhetoric and logic of postmodernists\. He also warns that we are entering soft totalitarianism, where the ideology of the state is enforced through… Matt Nuenke Tue, 26 Jun 2007 00:00 21 Wed, 27 May 2015 13:44
Psychology and White Ethnocentrism. Following are excerpts from Kevin MacDonald’s article Psychology and White Ethnocentrism\.

A quick review of The Shame of the Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling in America Kozol doesn’t explain his role very well, but it seems he is a freelance researcher into minority schools and an apologist for minority student failures\. He relies primarily on narrative to try to show that minority schools are underserved by society, but a careful reading just reinforces that minorities are… Matt Nuenke Fri, 11 May 2007 22:34 10 Mon, 14 May 2007 09:11
The first round of eugenics was not so wrong after all.

Strange Alliance: Christian/Jewish Zionists. When debating the existence of God, philosophers point to two major problems\: unnecessary evil in the world and non-belief \(See T\.M\. Drange’s Nonbelief & Evil, 1998\)\. One strong component of many religions then is to find ways to prove that God exists, and especially reassuring are miracles and prophecies\.

Mexicans versus Blacks. Last week watching CNN, there was a story about a small town in Texas where historically the minority was Black, but now Mexicans are moving in, outnumbering the Blacks, and forcing Blacks out of jobs\.  The usual response is that Mexicans \(and Hispanics in general\) are hard working\.
