On this day a year ago
Well, this week, the political journalist John Rentoul scored a rare victory over me. He awarded himself 7 and a half out of 10, but I scored only 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 3, 5, and 8.
2022: first year of a 33-year cycle
I have blogged in the past about the 33-year cycle in our times: 1923, 1956, 1989, 2022 etc.
It can be seen that in, or close to, those dates occurred many of the shaping events of the past 100 years: the official establishment of the Soviet Union (30 December 1922), Mussolini’s March on Rome (late October 1922), and Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch (November 1923), lighting the blue touchpaper for the Second World War.
The Hungarian Uprising and Khrushchev’s Secret Speech (1956), both events symbolic of the belated end of Stalinism, as well as leading on to the collapse of Soviet Power and its East European “empire” in 1989; Suez (1956), which confirmed the post-1948 Arab-Israeli enmity, and also triggered Arab solidarity around oil production, leading to the formation of OPEC in 1960.
1989 saw the Fall of Socialism not only in the Soviet Union (though the Soviet Union as a state limped on until 1991) but in the satellites and elsewhere. In the UK, for example, the Labour Party effectively abandoned socialism, and after having elected Tony Blair as leader a few years later, abandoned Clause IV (socialist ownership and direction of enterprises).
1989 also saw the open public pronouncement by President George Bush snr (in early 1990) of the “New World Order” [NWO]. At the same time, the NWO began to gather strength for attacks on the anti-Israel powers, starting (on a big scale) with Iraq, after the 1990 Kuwait invasion.
From 1989-2022, the “NWO” impulse was dominant: elimination of socialism worldwide, and destruction of, or control over, the anti-Israel states (Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya etc). The pervasive influence of finance-capitalism. The degradation of Russia in the 1990s. The increase of overt Jewish-lobby influence in the “Western” world. The promotion of race-mixing in the “Western world” (as seen in TV ads, dramas etc, all loosely co-ordinated on some level); i.e. the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan being put into very obvious effect.
2022 is now with us. The approach to 2022 was the “panicdemic” around “Covid-19” (etc). Across, again, the Western world particularly, a massive psychological conditioning experiment designed to turn whole populations. who previously thought of themselves as, more or less, “free” people, living in “free” countries, into compliant serf-citizens.
The facemask nonsense, the “vaccines” and “boosters” thereof, the “social distancing” (and, in the UK, “Boris” Johnson’s arbitrary and ludicrous “Rule of Six”). All part of a hypnotic-style conditioning process on a huge scale.
The agenda of the transnational conspiracy (or consensus) for 2022-2055 seems to be: more racemixing, and a sustained attempt to start to actually wipe out the white/European/Aryan (or post-Aryan) race, as well as an attempt to control Russia, or at least to isolate Russia, and an attempt to destroy independent thought, speech, and publishing.
BBC or former BBC reporter Allan Little has written about the present moment in the context of 1989: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-60767454
“In November 1989, I stood on a snow-flecked Wenceslas Square in Prague, the capital of what was then Czechoslovakia, and watched a new world being born.
In Prague, the dissident playwright Vaclav Havel addressed a crowd of 400,000 from a second-floor balcony. It was an exhilarating moment, dizzying in its pace. That evening, the Communist regime collapsed and within weeks Havel was president of a new democratic state. I sensed, even at the time, that I had watched the world pivot – that it was one of those rare moments when you know the world is remaking itself before your eyes.
How many such moments had there been in the history of Europe since the French Revolution? Probably, I thought then, about five. This, 1989, was the sixth.
But that world – born in those dramatic popular revolutions – came to an end when Putin ordered Russian forces into Ukraine.
The German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called this moment a zeitenwende – a turning point – while UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said it was a “paradigm shift”. The age of complacency, she said, was over.“
To my mind, a fairly good —in parts— but also rather flawed analysis.
A good example of what I have written above…
Gordon Brown— typical narrow-minded Scottish hypocrite.
I begin to think that a nuclear attack on London…well, let’s just leave the thought hanging there…
Where were these people when the USA bombed Iraq, Serbia etc?
The Political Editor of LBC radio (Jewish, needless to add) seems pleased that an “antisemitic” voice is silenced. I have little time for “rappers”, black or otherwise, but what we see here is yet another example of Jews ganging up against individuals thought to be “antisemitic” and either inciting or applauding their “cancellation”.
A few of my own experiences:
A long-running TV Schauspiel for the masses.
At last, a little realism from the UK msm:
“Putin may be losing the information war but Zelensky’s NATO concession suggests Ukraine may be losing on the battlefield. The West must not fool itself into thinking otherwise, writes military expert BILL ROGGIO.” [Daily Mail].
Exactly what I wrote on the blog a couple of days ago.
“Videos of Russian battlefield setbacks abound in the media, and strangely there is little reporting on Ukrainian losses.
And yet, over three weeks into the war, Vladimir Putin remains president and the Russian war machine has not collapsed but in fact continues its plodding, imperfect, and messy advance.” [Bill Roggio in the Daily Mail].
“This is not a condemnation of the West’s use of information and disinformation.
These tactics play a role in the management of conflicts. But the West should not delude itself into believing that the Ukrainians will be saved by wishful thinking.” [Bill Roggio in the Daily Mail].
“Where the Ukrainians have put of [sic] stiff resistance in the cities, Russian forces are bypassing them to take other key objectives, while at the same time the Russians are attempting to surround the cities and pound them into submission with deadly air and artillery strikes.
This is a classic military maneuver. Once a force is surrounded, they will begin to run out of necessities, like food and ammo.” [Bill Roggio in the Daily Mail]
Again, the same as I have been saying on the blog.
It can only be a matter of time, resupply permitting, until Russian forces in the Kharkov/Izyum area strike out west for the Dnieper. The same will happen on the other, western, bank of that very wide river, once Russian forces take or bypass Kryvyi Rih/Krivoy Rog.
At that point, Kiev —though over 200 miles away— will be open to approach from both south and southwest, on both banks of the Dnieper.
The likely outcome, some way down the line, still seems to me to be a Russian occupation of the east and south of Ukraine, leaving the western half largely in rebel (meaning Kiev-regime) hands, once Zelensky and his cabal are dislodged from Kiev. Lvov will become the Zelensky capital, assuming that he escapes and survives.
Late tweets seen
Silly woman is only an MP because her former husband, the former MP, was imprisoned for (ridiculous and ineffective) sexual fumbling around with a couple of women. She then “inherited” his seat, absurdly.
I suppose that both the heckling and my comment here will soon be made a “crime” via the new Orwellian Online Harms Bill. So much for our “free” society…
Oh, incidentally, “In July 2020 she sold the story of her divorce to The Sun tabloid newspaper for £25,000” [Wikipedia]. Pure class. Oh, no, wait…

Hello Ian!: Could you tell me who is this “Lowkey” character that has been cancelled?
I had never heard of “Lowkey” until last week.
