Moneygrubbing pro-Israel MP Jess Phillips on her usual anti-free speech, pro-Jewish-lobby rant. Seems that free speech is “dangerous“…Seems, also, that she still cannot use English correctly (“their“, instead of “they’re” or “they are”)

Ecce the self-described “Left”! “Black Jewish people“? Who are they? The so-called Falashas? Whoopi Goldberg?

Re: Ash Sarkar and friends:



and now for something completely different…

Jeremy Corbyn fighting fund

I notice that Corbyn’s GoFundMe appeal, to defend him against the “lawfare” being waged by Jews (fronted by self-publicizing bad joke solicitor, Mark Lewis, now resident in Eilat, Israel) is now taking in money at a rate of about ยฃ40 per minute! https://uk.gofundme.com/f/47gyy-jeremy039s-legal-fund

I may not have much time for Corbyn, but those against him are untermenschen.

Corbyn’s mistake was in not fighting back effectively when he was Labour Party leader. In particular, he and “grandpa Stalin” McDonnell both paid lip-service to the largely-faked “holocaust” farrago. It was the biggest mistake that they could have made.

If, as Hitchens says, Parliament is”quite dead” and there is no real Opposition (I agree with both contentions), then anything is justified to restore the rights of the British people. Anything.

…for the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].

Below, self-described “historian” and “journalist” (and “antifa” cheerleader), Mike Stuchbery, now a resident of Stuttgart, showing stunning yet unsurprising lack of thought:

Might it be that, having been under fairly strict National Socialist rule (whatever its benefits), followed by Soviet and other occupation, and then (in the East) hardline socialist rule (and Stasi monitoring) for much of the 20th Century, Germans generally just do what they are told, and are used to being ordered around?

It is precisely because they were under strict State control that most Germans are not dissenting about having to wear masks; the idea of saying “no!” is not accepted, it seems. Having said that, most of the UK is no better. Rabbits.

Altercations in the toytown police state

I drove to Waitrose in the nearby small town. I had with me a disposable mask, knowing that without one I should not be allowed entrance (they still have one black-clad Handmaid’s Tale militia operative loitering outside).

Sure enough, as I was going in, the “militiawoman”, who recognized me from previous visits, smiled but added “mask, please, Sir”…so I had no choice if I wanted to shop. I waved the mask and replied “…I am all ready for the new police state”, and she had the grace to laugh.

Inside the supermarket, I found that wearing the mask was hot and uncomfortable, so pulled it down below the nose. None of the Waitrose staff said anything. The problem came when I was at the drinks section. A young shopper, a Chinese, actually had the gall to tell me that my mask should be above my nose! Even though my mouth and much of my face was covered! A ch**k!

I told the Chinese (pulling my mask aside) “thank you!” and waved him away. The Ch…did not give up and was just starting to lecture me when I snarled “SHUT UP! GET LOST” and walked away. He did not follow. I felt like smashing him into the ground, so maybe he had a lucky escape (or, on the other hand, maybe I myself did! After all, he might have been a Kung Fu exponent!).

Anyway, I did the rest of my shopping without incident, and fortunately did not see the aforesaid Ch… again.

Incidentally, I am not a natural snarler, but some people go too far; some people just keep pushing. Then they are dealt with. Having said that, I can do without (as 1920s Chicago gangsters used to put it) any “heat” from the toytown police. Walking away was the wise choice, I suppose, especially in a confined place like a supermarket…

[The Untouchables, maybe my favourite TV series as a child, seen by me as repeats on TV in Sydney when I was about 10 years old (in1967)]

What makes it even more ridiculous is that, had I crossed the road from the supermarket, and entered the pub there, I would not have had to wear a bloody mask at all!

As I have written before, a police state is bad enough, a toytown one just as bad, really, but an incompetent and toytown one just a bad joke. As for the Ch…, how DARE HE say ANYTHING to me in my own country!

In fact, this was not the end of my encounter with the new Boris-idiot toytown police state. because I needed a fuel top-up for the car. I went to the only nearby place, and the usual young man (there’s either a young man or young woman) was there. I went into the kiosk to pay, only to be asked “do you have a mask, Sir?” I politely said that it was in the car, but I had the exact money in cash. He said that I could advance and put it down (he was behind a perspex screen anyway, though not himself wearing a mask!

I did pay, and (politely, smiling) mentioned that England is becoming a police state. His expression hovered between smiling and crying. For a second, I thought that the poor little bastard was going to burst into tears!

Britain’s so-called “new normal”: people who are (99.999% of them) not infected and not going to sneeze on anyone in any case, forced to shop muzzled, indefinitely. Oh…and silly little busybodies who think that they have the right to be a multikulti Red Guard, telling British people what to do.

Well, in future, I shall only go out to shop (if at all) once per week, or maybe even switch to ordering online. I certainly have no intention of using non-food shops. Let them all go to the wall. As for fuel, I can drive 5 miles to the nearest automatic pump (that takes debit cards). Fuck them all.

Am I the only “rebel” or “dissenter” (or “heretic”)? I doubt it. If this continues, the offline retail sector in the UK is well and truly screwed. It may be that half or a quarter of consumers will still shop in person, but half or three-quarters will not bother. Waitrose this evening had few customers, which may be a straw in the wind; and, after all, people have to shop for food…

This action by Boris-idiot and his Cabinet (of incompetents) has weaponized the busybody instincts of at least a minority. It has emboldened a few of the bastards to the extent that they are willing and feel able to give lectures and even orders to people, based on half-understood bits and pieces of spurious “science” and doubtful “law” sprayed out in biased fashion by the BBC and Sky News liars.

I am still fuming, hours later, despite a glass of Hereford vintage cider and a small glass of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva rum from Venezuela.

When I saw Nick Griffin referring to the “British people” recently as “#WankerNation” in tweets, I thought that maybe he was going a little too far, too soon. Now I fear that he is completely correct. Most British people are just scared rabbits, scared out of their skins by a virus which kills about one in two thousand people, and which has (probably) run its course, at least for now and in its present form.

Now, I have seen for myself that, even in an area scarcely affected by “the virus”, the rabbits are all complying, at least superficially, with the mask-wearing edict which only exists as of today because Boris-idiot has decided to make it so (without even a Commons vote), and which may be in force indefinitely.

This is something new in history: weaponization of a fear of a medical condition, but a fear based on almost nothing. And the population is just obeying the non-law…

I think that we can no longer credibly call the UK a “democracy”. We need a new term. I saw “wallygarchy” recently. It made me laugh, but that fits well enough for the moment. A “nation” that is no longer a nation, ruled by arbitrary incompetents, who are ruling over an emerging dystopia of hopeless, helpless serfs.

  1. Peter Hitchens, stop your constant frothing at the mouth as this is not good for your mental health but then I think you lost the plot a longtime ago and should be carted-off to the local loony bin to have an appointment with the men in white coats but libertarian Tory hero Maggie Thatcher closed them all down so we canโ€™t, unfortunately, book you in! ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜žโ˜น๏ธ Now, THAT is such a disappointment to me and I suspect increasingly large numbers of other people!โ˜น๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ž


  2. Welldone Germany!๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž You were a bit TOO obedient of authority in the 1930โ€™s and early 1940โ€™s to your own ultimate detriment and that of the world but it is acceptable and very good of you to be that way inclined NOW with this Covid-19 viral pandemic.

    Follow, Follow, Angela Merkel in this situation as at least as far as her policies on THIS subject is concerned she is doing you proud.

    Well, she IS a qualified scientist, after all, rather than our Tory โ€˜expertsโ€™ ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„like Michael Gove!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


  3. Hello Ian: Lots of interesting things in your post today.

    As I am not a Brit, and I tend to ignore MSM and all that crap known as TWITTER and FACEBOOK. I must ask:

    A) Who is Wiley? I gather he attacked “the chosen ones”, but I don’t know why?

    B) Who is Natalie Rowe? He seems to be aware that our system is rotten to the core. I like her comments.

    BTW I looked for some information about Mike Bates, a disgusting fat slob who consistently attacked Jeremy Corbyn for his alleged “antisemitism”. He is obviously another doormat o the Jewish lobby. Looking at his picture makes me wonder if he is not Jewish, he certainly behaves as such.

    Last but not least. I loved the picture of those gorgeous white girls giving the fascist salute! Sieg Heil! LOL


    1. Claudius:
      Yes, Mike *Gapes* is a Jew and a fervent supporter of Israel. Gapes was going to be removed by Labour as its candidate for Ilford South constituency, so stepped down in 2019.

      Looking at the assertion that Gapes fired his manager for losing Gapes’s shoes, then at that Natalie Rowe tweet, perhaps the shoes were expensive high heel ones!

      Natalie Rowe was a prostitute who (apparently…I have neither inclination nor the funds) was rather expensive, and whose specialty was whipping, what in the 18thC was called “the English disease”!.

      She claims that the young George Osborne, in the 1980s, was a client. I certainly have a photo of her with Osborne, who looks young, drunk and in possession (on the table) of a “line” of cocaine.


      The Wiley black I had never heard of until yesterday, but he seems to be some kind of singer or “rap” person whom the Jews now hate because he tweets the truth about them…
      Ah, here you are:

      “Smersh never sleeps”…


      1. Hello Ian: Thank you for the info on George Osborne and that ugly tart Natalie Rowe. They deserved each other. I looked him up on Wikipedia and guess what? In 2018 “The Daily Telegraph” reported that he and his siblings discovered “with delight” (!!??) that their maternal grandmother was Jewish! That is what you may call “the icing on the cake” LOL


      2. Claudius:
        Thank you.

        Yes, Osborne is part-Jew, as is David “Cameron” (Cameron-Levita) and —though I cannot yet prove this last— Theresa May. Boris-idiot too, of course…

        As for Osborne’s “delight”, I suppose the American phrase “when Life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” covers it…


      3. Hello Ian: Your comment prompted me to dig a bit deeper, and I found this fellow who has done very thorough research on May’s family going back three generations and posting birth certificates and other documents. It seems that she is from true English stock, but we know that that does not guarantee anything. As I always said for every Jew, there are three Aryan traitors.



  4. Where were you, Peter Hitchens, when Tory heroine, Margaret Thatcher, was passing her Public Order Act 1986 with the help of her Jewish Home Secretary, Leon Britann? That act had a severe โ€˜chillingโ€™ effect upon the right of Britons to freely discuss the impact of mass immigration upon our society. I donโ€™t recall you being in favour of โ€˜libertyโ€™ then for some strange reason! Please go away FRAUD!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„โ€™


    1. Hitchens, in the middle-eighties, was a parliamentary correspondent (which he found rather boring during the whole Westland helicopter affair and the falling-out between Michael Heseltine and Margaret Thatcher over it) for the Daily Express and then went to Iceland and covered the meeting between Gorbachev and Reagan at the end of 1986. The Thatcher government in 1986 had a humongous majority of 154 seats, won at the 1983 general election, and could pass any law it wished regardless of what a powerless journalist like Hitchens thought of it.


  5. Hello again!

    I read your long and very interesting post about Peter Hitchens whose link you sent me. Thank you.

    I didn’t know that Hitchens blocked you, but then considering he is part Jewish and Conservative, it should not surprise me.

    The following comment is addressed to you and Steven: Steven asked me how we were coping with the Covid-19 in Argentina. Therefore I looked into it and wrote back (by the way, I am still waiting for a reply)

    Looking at the figures.120.770 infected and 2.373 dead out of a population of nearly 44.000.000, I decided to check the Japanese statistics because something wasn’t right. Please consider that Argentina has been under strict quarantine since mid-March and masks have been mandatory since 1st May.

    OK, here we go: Japan had only 29.053 cases and 994 dead out of 126.000.000 people!!! How the Hell can you explain that? Japan DID NOT HAVE quarantine or lockdown!. Two things came to my mind, but still do not adequately tell the significant difference

    A) The strain of the virus must have been a far less powerful one.

    B) Japanese are by habit and education very responsible, clean and respectful people who care for the others and will do everything to prevent any harm to them.

    Something is clear to me lockdown IS NOT the answer! Japan has sailed through this bloody pandemic and Argentina, the UK and God knows how many other countries are ruined. You can’t argue that.


    1. Iโ€™m sorry I didnโ€™t reply back to you.I must have been occupied with writing out YouTube addresses for videos on a different thread and to be blunt writing posts on here is not easy on my IPad Mini. This site frequently crashes for some reason. Appleโ€™s Safari browser either doesnโ€™t like this site or the site is especially slow.

      I wish I had bought a South Korean Samsung tablet rather than Yankee made in China Apple rubbish now!๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜กโ˜น๏ธ


      1. Hello Steve. Thank you for your reply. Is very interesting what you said about Samsung. I heard very good comments about their products. South Koreans seem to be very intelligent people. As a principle, I would not buy anything “made in China” (something very difficult nowadays, unfortunately)

        I am reading a fascinating book about Japan. I did not know that the foundations of Japanese culture were Chinese AND Korean. Of course, the Japanese developed their own culture and, by absorbing Western science and know-how quickly surpassed all other Asian nations. I truly admire them.


    2. Your infection rate could be better I suppose but it isnโ€™t too bad especially when it is compared to what has happened under that loony nutter next door to you in Brazil!๐Ÿ™„

      Your death rate is very good and shouldnโ€™t be a matter of too much concern especially if this IS the true figure.

      Your lockdown to me does seem to have prevented larger numbers of infections and crucially deaths in the normally more virulent first wave. I do think your government acted BEFORE the first wave truely hit in Argentina ie it was โ€˜ahead of the curveโ€™.


  6. Something very important I forgot to mention about the COVID 19 statistics from Argentina: you cannot trust them! I am sure that the figures are much smaller than the ones published.

    This government is a Marxist-Globalist one. Its corruption and hypocrisy are unbelievable. When the bastards were in power in 2014, they brazenly manipulated/corrupted the data from the National Centre of Statistics regarding the level of poverty in Argentina and the bloke in charge had the cheek to say that there were more poor people in Germany than in Argentina!!! It is all on record.


      1. Yes, I did read it. Sorry, I forgot to comment on it. I feel very much like you. I hate these do-gooders and busybodies. I am ready for a fight, I will not put up with that kind of rubbish.


      2. Claudius:
        For me, it was incredible! The idiot was not even very near me! He needs his head smashed in…On the other hand, I would prefer not to be barred from my nearest supermarket (a mile or so from me); and I find the police very boring, so prefer not to have to “explain” myself to them.


    1. He is probably correct to say that as Germany does but then it does have a larger population than you do so ABSOLUTE numbers in poverty in Germany will be higher on that measure but then this whole topic begs the question as to HOW poor do you have to be to be in real poverty?

      As far as that goes then, I suppose, there ARE more Argentines who are truely poor than Germans in a similar position.


  7. That Wiley bloke is a joke. For God’s sake, he got an MBE! That proves that England is rotten to the core. I do not care what he said about “the chosen ones”, the man does not have any authority or credibility. We don’t need people like him. I remember an Austrian bloke born in 1889 who said everything it had to be said about “the enemies of Mankind”, I believe his name was Adolf…


  8. Just a little gem that I picked up thanks to a great American friend who pointed me in the right direction.


    Just one detail, although the Monsanto company was founded by a, supposedly, Aryan guy guess who must have put the lion’s share into the business? Otherwise, why use his wife’s name? I am sure it was because her family controlled the company.


    1. Claudius:
      Thank you. Interesting. I had heard of Monsanto, of course, but knew nothing of the history.

      When one thinks about it, the Jewish links to slavery are obvious: Jews or crypto-Jews from Spain and Portugal trading with the Spanish possession of the Netherlands, then the links between Amsterdam and London (and Bristol), especially slightly later, after 1689.


  9. So bloody what if New Zealand has a โ€˜wokeโ€™ PM in Jacinda Arden, Mr libertarian selfish Tory arsehole, Peter Hitchens!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    Whilst she does have many faults, on *this* issue she has been utterly superb. Oh, and for your information, Peter, New Zealandโ€™s government prioritised the health of the nation over their very important and substantial tourist industry by virtually totally suspending air travel and no doubt *this* factor can be said to have made a large contribution to the fight against Covid-19 in that country so, you see, being away from large centres of population is not necessarily going to help if a government doesnโ€™t restrict travel as your beloved moronic Tory scum DIDNโ€™T do. Fucking moron!๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


    1. We are nearer to major population centres than New Zealand is ie Europe, Heathrow is one of the most connected airports in the world to many destinations all around the globe so we had MORE reasons than NZ did to introduce ultra-tough travel restrictions EARLY particularly as the WHO said the world epicentre of the viral disease pandemic had moved from Asia to Europe and we could all see that Italy and Spain were in increasing trouble with it YET what was Priti Useless doing in March/April?

      Yes, Mr Hitchens, sweet Fuck All AS PER USUAL!๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

      How about mentioning this factor in your daily rants?๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ

      How about denouncing the Tory governmentโ€™s addiction to globalist open borders even during a worldwide viral pandemic?๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


  10. Indeed, so pleased are our Kiwi cousins with the response of their coalition government of Labour And New Zealand First they look set to reward Jacinda Ardenโ€™s party with the FIRST OVERALL MAJORITY for ONE party since New Zealand dumped the profoundly undemocratic crap of the First Past The Post electoral system the year inherited from us in 1996 and changed to using Germanyโ€™s Mixed-Member Proportional Representation system.


    1. Of course, winning a general election under a Proportional Representation electoral system by having the backing of a REAL MAJORITY of ACTUAL VOTES instead of getting an artificial majority gifted to you by the workings of First Past The Post system as Boris did in December (The CONS only had 44% of the national vote) is not easy to achieve so if New Zealandโ€™s Labour Party and current PM manage to do this then it indicates that the NZ electorate is very, very pleased with the governmentโ€™s handling of the crisis.


  11. New Zealand has a party of libertarian loonies composed of people like Peter which is called the ACT party BUT as New Zealand IS now a genuine democracy thanks to the Mixed-Member Proportional Representation system they have switched to these nutters CANโ€™T bury themselves into a major party like they have done with our Tory Party and affect government policies in that way but have to stand on their own two feet under PR and have their own separate party. Needless to say, when libertarian loonies stand UNDER THEIR OWN LABEL they donโ€™t get many votes in elections even under the fair voting system of MMP as in New Zealand.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž


  12. Better to have a โ€˜wokeโ€™ female PM in Jacinda Arden that shows concern for the health of her nation rather than a CLASS A scruffy MORON in Boris The Buffoon who didnโ€™t show concern for our health and, instead of doing his job in early to mid March, was more concerned with appearing on daytime tv programme This Morning with his Tory mate Phillip Schofield!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


  13. I donโ€™t like wearing a mask either (does anyone who is half normal?) especially as I have found that wearing one tends to steam-up the glasses I have to wear and it makes me hot and bothered in shops that havenโ€™t heard of the two words air conditioning but I will wear one not just because it is now mandatory to do so but because I donโ€™t wish to catch the virus and pass it on to someone far more potentially vulnerable than I am.

    I have no problem with showing a bit of social and national solidarity with fellow Britons as the Japs and South Koreans are doing uncomplainingly but Peter wouldnโ€™t understand the concept of social and national solidarity what with his being an ultra-individualist libertarian on this matter.

  15. Hello Ian: I just remembered something outrageously funny that happened in Peru two years ago. I suppose/hope you must have some kind of automatic translator on your computer because the articles are in Spanish.

    Everything began with the father of the man who made the news. He obviously was a great admirer of the Fรผhrer and had the “brilliant” idea of naming his son not Adolf but Hitler. Yes, just like that. The funny thing is that his son decided to go into politics and he ran for major in a small town. For some weird reason, he chose to campaign not under his surname (Sanchez) but his first name. This is something worth of Monty Python. I swear every time I read this, I laugh my head off.

    Here is the first article. The slogan painted on the wall reads: “We are Peru” and “Hitler supports the farmers” LOL.


    This one is even funnier: The slogan reads: “Hitler is back!”



    1. Claudius:
      Yes. Amusing. I know that in some South American countries it was a fashion to name children after famous political figures from elsewhere, as in the case of Ilyich Ramirez Sanchez, aka “Carlos” aka (in the UK/French Press) “the Jackal”/”Chacal”…(Ilyich being of course from Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, ie Lenin).


  16. โ€˜Anti-Semitic tropesโ€™ says Ash Sarkar! Well, I have to say some of them do appear to have some basis in the truth. Why else can you say anti-white things in this country and donโ€™t get into trouble with the media or the police yet if you criticise Jews or organised Jewry in even mild ways then the media and police will normally create a fuss and cause you some grief! If they as a group have no power or influence in our society then why does this happen?


    1. Exactly so, m’Lord of Essex. Look how even those whom the Jews frequently attack often bow down and kow-tow to them. Ash Sarkar a good example. She now has a mass media career as “licensed Bolshevik”, rather like Owen Jones. If the Jew lobby really tried, it could derail that career, so she caves in…


      1. Yes, Ian, very frightening. Sometimes I regret not having had children, but in a case like this, I am happy. It must be terrible to be a patriotic Briton and a father. You would be sick with worry about your children’s future.


  17. Regarding your observation about Theresa May’s ancestors and the surname Barnes, I would say that the names are a tricky subject concerning the Jews. As an example, I was checking the very likely Jewish ancestry of Rupert Murdoch, considering his fanatical support of Israel and international Jewry. Those who claim he is Jewish say is through his mother, nee Greene.

    Now, I did a bit of digging, and I found myself in a quandary. According to the Irish scholar Edward MacLysaght (“The Surnames of Ireland”, 1997), Green and Greene are common Irish surnames; but, as you know these surnames are also prevalent among Jews in Anglo-Saxon countries. Se we are in a 50-50 situation. Regarding Murdoch’s mother, she looks hideously Jewish to me (as Rupert himself does) so I would say “yes” to that possibility.

    Still, the subject is a very complex one. For example, let’s take German surnames. We have Alfred Rosenberg and yet there hundreds of Jews called Rosenberg. We have the undoubtedly Aryan composers Johann and Richard Strauss, and there are hundreds of Jews called Strauss. Himmler’s second in command was Karl Wolff, yet there are lots of Jews called Wolf or Wolff.

    To make things more complicated, there is a matter of physiognomy. I met many Jews (male and female) who looked perfectly Aryan. This, coupled with their use of Aryan surnames, makes it impossible sometimes to identify them as Jews. I always remember what a friend told me many years ago: “Be careful when you discuss politics, you never know who you are talking to”
