That idiot is such a hypocrite that he probably does not know that he is a hypocrite.


Incidentally, reading Clooney’s entry in Wikipedia [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Clooney], I realized that I have seen not one film or TV series featuring him. That must be why I was puzzled, many years ago, when I kept hearing things about him on the TV; I was thinking “George Clooney? Who’s that?“.

He has good taste in domestic property, though. His house on a river island at Sonning, Berkshire, is very classic (Georgian), and in a beautiful location across the Thames from some of the grounds of the school I unwillingly attended in the nearly 4 years 1970-1973; and his house on Lake Como, in the Italian Lakes region, is also beautiful and in a beautiful place.

The evil and yet idiotic “SAGE” “scientists”, msm “me too” groupthinkers, and UK “health” bureaucrats would have been right at home in early Renaissance Italy, insisting that the Sun goes around the Earth and describing the truth as “heresy”.

State “quiet killing” of hundreds of thousands of elderly people thought of, by the State, by ministers and by most MPs, as simply “surplus to requirements”.

I examined some of the history of “democracy” a few years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/15/has-parliamentary-democracy-as-we-have-known-it-until-now-had-its-day-in-the-uk/.

“Jack Monroe” attracts the very worst supporters on Twitter, perhaps even worse than the “FBPE” loonies. Her core “constituency” is not “the poor”, but the unpleasant and/or mentally-disturbed.

I think that there are at least half a dozen regular “Jack Monroe” Twitter “sock accounts” regularly posting while she pretends to be “taking (another) rest from Twitter”.

It took me a while to realize the extent of it, but my opinion now is that “Jack Monroe” is, or has become, an outright fraud.

Incidentally, the new book by “Jack Monroe”, Thrifty Kitchen (which seems to consist, judging from what one reads in the msm and on Twitter, of recipes from the BBC and other sources already available for free online), is not selling.

At present, according to the Amazon Book Sales Calculator, only a few dozen copies a day, if that (about 600 per month) are being sold on Amazon (which must be the major outlet). In fact, nearly new copies (the book was only released a few weeks ago) are available on Amazon for as little as £7.

I was interested to see the reviews on Amazon. The 5* ones (about 70%), may or may not be genuine, and have only a handful of up-votes each, suspiciously, whereas the 20% of reviews awarding only 1* (with some wishing that they could award zero stars) have hundreds of up-votes: 400, 500, or more. Telling.

All the same, 498 utter mugs are still signed up on Patreon to send her a total of between £1,743 and £21,912 per month (probably in the region of about £5,000, realistically). The very silly, or outright loonies, I should imagine.

That composer, of whom I had never heard until today, seems to have been one of the millions displaced by the large-scale disruptions and dislocations of the 20th Century.

Stray thought about the NHS

I suppose that, as usual, I have to preface my remarks by repeating that I do favour the core principle of the NHS, i.e. that it should be free at point of use.

Beyond that, I was just trying to think of any other service or product which is defended mainly on the ground that it is free or cheap. Air travel using “low-cost” rubbish airlines, such as Ryanair? I suppose that that is one.

I understand that what people do is pay a ludicrously-small amount (eg £50, £20, or even £10) each way for the flight, but then have to accept that everything usually provided gratis is charged for, and that the flight will land a long way from where you really want to go, such as “Paris Beauvais” airport (Beauvais is 55 miles from Paris) or, I think in the past, even “Paris Amiens” airport (Amiens is 160 miles from Paris by road or rail).

Still, I see the point. Hard to complain about £10 each way London (Stansted) to/from La Rochelle, even if the service etc is near rock-bottom (though I concede that I myself have never used Ryanair). Incidentally, La Rochelle Airport is right by the city.

Ryanair is very successful, so people obviously buy into the concept at the prices on offer. See also: https://www.ryanair.com/flights/gb/en/flights-to-france.

What else do people accept almost purely on the basis that it costs little? Not much, I think. State primary and secondary education? Possibly.

Still, Ryanair flights do arrive as promised, much of the time. Can the same be said of the NHS? I fear not, or often not, these days.

No-one (except perhaps the ultra-wealthy) wants to swap the NHS for an American-style system, but there are alternative systems that might be examined. What is not helpful is for people to shout out meaningless slogans about “our NHS” etc, to refuse to see what a poor service it is often —not always— offering now, and to refuse to think about how (beyond simply funding it better) the NHS might be improved.

Interesting. Is that a ploy to get “Boris”-idiot back? Or maybe some of them want sinister “let’s bomb Russia” candidate Tobias Ellwood as PM. That would solve all our problems— permanently…

While it is true that Labour are only popular by default, in a basically unfree and binary system, they are still well ahead at present.

I am not so sure that the Conservative Party might not be electorally better-off ditching the Indian money-juggler, and even going back to “Boris”-idiot, but better not that latter; they really need someone relatively untainted, and someone British/English, i.e. not non-white. That might not save them completely re. the next general election, but it might be enough to produce a hung Parliament.

I sense that Labour is, even in these conditions of shambolic incompetence in government, not truly “popular”, but many people are becoming desperate for something. If only there were a proper social-national party, credible and organized, but there is none.

A new Conservative Party leader would mean yet another unmandated or unvalidated PM, the fourth since 2015 (or fifth, if you include the first two years of “Boris”-idiot). What price “democracy”?

Greta Nut is another complete fake, as well as being completely idiotic.

Well, it’s just a phrase and, after all, Nick Robinson is a half-Jew himself. I am not a meat-eater, but recognize that some people want it, just as a cat needs meat.

Naive tweeter “@clairebubblepop” thinks that scammer “Jack Monroe”, trade unionist Mick Lynch, wealthy TV face Carol Vorderman, and even multimillionaire Jewish “MoneySavingExpert” Martin Lewis, are all “fighting for change“. Frankly, I doubt it. Not in any really substantial way. Some may want some changes in society, but not in any truly radical way, in my opinion.

(((Termite))).

Very much in evidence during the “panicdemic”. Society split pretty much in half, and that split, though now half-forgotten, is still there, and will always now be there.

“Loony tunes”

Two brief experiences of the low-level craziness brought into being, or encouraged, by the virtue-signalling society in which we now exist:

  1. Yesterday, on TV news, I think BBC, a story about the energy crisis in the UK. The reporter went into a cold, dark, unlit, unheated house to talk to a weird-looking middleaged woman sitting wrapped head to toes in a blanket. My first thought was “virtue-signalling loony” and (quelle surprise), what did the blanket-wrapped loon say, when asked about retail costs of heating and lighting? “I’m not worried about the money…it’s not about the money“… in other words, the crazed bitch was making a screwed-up point about “Ukraine”, and Russia, and “eco”-something-or-other.

In other words, that woman was not being forced into sitting in the cold and dark, but was doing it because she wanted to both feel “virtuous” and also to be seen on the BBC doing it. What a crazie! A form of contemporary self-flagellation, like “refugees welcome” idiocy (which she probably also supports).

2. This morning, I was just buying a few lottery tickets somewhere when a very fat young woman wearing a cloth facemask came up to the cash till and paid for a takeaway coffee.

Did she not get the memo? Facemasks are so 2021. She reminded me of the cartoon below, featuring an older version:

Admittedly, the silly creature did not say anything to the shop people, or to me, but I would bet, 100%, that she was just the type that used to behave like that during the “panicdemic” of 2020-2021.

Great Continental Rail Journeys

Was just watching one of those Michael Portillo rail journeys on TV, Vienna to Trieste. Interesting. Vienna railway station looks better now than the old one that I saw a couple of times in the 1980s.

More interesting to me was when Portillo mentioned that, in the several decades before the First World War, the population of Vienna had increased by 5x, but that the Jewish population of Vienna had increased by no less than 35x! That explains much.

The six cities of Europe with the greatest (absolute) numbers of Jews today (as of a couple of years ago) are Paris, Moscow, London, Kiev, Budapest, and Marseilles. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_population_by_city.

Well, there’s a surprise (not).

Apart from anything else, older British people do not want to work for rubbish pay or, if on better pay, to be taxed through the nose so that money in huge amounts can be wasted on the sort of rubbish we saw during the “panicdemic” of 2020-2021, or on migrant-invaders posing as “refugees”, or on any other rubbish.

I agree with them (though I am now 66 anyway): I say— live on a lower spend-level, re-evaluate, live (as far as you can) off-grid (or at least cut off from the HMRC, DWP, professional and other leeches such as lawyers, accountants, estate agents etc), and plot the end of this society while seeding a new one.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11709517/Russian-casualties-Ukraine-nearing-200-000-officials-say.html

The city [Bakhmut] sits on an important confluence of supply routes and, when fighting started at least, was seen as a vital staging point for assaults further into Donbas – particularly the nearby cities of Slovyansk and Kramatorsk.

Now, though, the battle is more symbolic than practical. Most analysts agree the blood price that Russia has paid trying to take Bakhmut – thought to be more than 100 troops per day – is not worth the value of capturing it.

[Daily Mail]

Perhaps but, if that city is so unimportant, why are the Kiev-regime forces also trying so hard to win there —at the cost of a similar number of casualties, probably— ?

[state of play as of 2-3 February 2023]

Kiev remains the jewel in the crown. If Russia can take Kiev and Kharkov, the war will be almost over. Maybe later this year.

Tweets seen

As I predicted, “Jack Monroe” will soon be supported only by loonies and the terminally naive.

Assuming that tweeter “@DaveMayhem” is not, er, “Jack Monroe” herself (she uses dozens of fake Twitter accounts).

In a way, the whole “Jack Monroe” thing has become a quite clever near-fraud, which has extracted rather large amounts of money overall.

Incidentally, that “DaveMayhem” tweeter (“Jack”?) uses the irritating Americanism “hate on“, rather than simple “hate“. Another black mark.

I have no idea whether “@ChrissieClarky” is another “Jack Monroe “sock account” or just another pro-“Jack Monroe oddity. Birds of a feather flock together, after all.

Actually, the “mental health” defence is quite clever because, first of all, it enables “Jack Monroe” to do more or less as she pleases— take money from the naive and well-meaning, drink herself silly, take drugs, spend money (mostly donated) like a drunken sailor etc; secondly, it gives a “reason” for the above defaults and, thirdly, makes any critics (or even those just trying to get their money back) seem like “bullies” and “trolls”.

When “Jack Monroe” closes down her Twitter account (as she has done at least three times even in the last few months) her supporters blame “trolls“, “bullies” etc, rather than noticing that, that way, she can avoid answering embarrassing questions about her extraction and misuse of money…

I see plenty of the well-meaning saying that “Jack Monroe” should stay off Twitter, and/or get “help”. Why would she do that? It has been Twitter, and her whole social media facade, that (together with msm promotion) has built her “career” as a supposed champion of the food-poor, and has given her (via Patreon etc) an income of —at least— several thousand pounds a month and possibly as much as £40,000 a month, but probably around £6,000 a month.

There were at one time 800 “mugs” paying “Jack Monroe” between £3.50 and £44 a month via Patreon alone! Partly due to Jewish TV cook Nigella Lawson’s promotion of her; Jay Rayner, the Jewish restaurant critic, was also applauding her at one time, but seems to have belatedly seen the light in recent months.

Even at time of writing today, 497 utter mugs are still signed up to her Patreon “grift”. That is actually a couple more than yesterday! Average (?) £10 a month = about £5,000 a month. A “nice little earner”…

What I predicted, a year ago, as a kind of microchip police state, though not yet with us (partly because of the brave “anti-vaxx” resistance of many) is still the System game-plan, together with all the “eat insects”, “15-minute-cities” stuff, and the rest. The System is looking for another opportunity, as happened with the Chinese virus, to push it all forward together.

We see apparently unconnected phenomena which are in fact, all part of a strategy. Major banks in the UK shutting down their branches (and so promoting online remote-access-only for customers); also, the major supermarkets reducing the number of tills where people can pay in cash, and promoting the self-service checkouts (where you cannot pay without a credit or debit card).

Take a look at the Neil Oliver tweet below on this blog.

The “Jack Monroe” situation continues

All very true. As others have tweeted, “Jack Monroe” “cleanses her Twitter timeline” by engaging with her supportive mugs on distractive topics (favourite ice-cream, cats, dogs, antiques, painting walls, whatever), to drown out the tweets of those who have exposed her behaviour and activities.

“Jack Monroe” must be quietly smug to see that, even though the msm and “celebrities” have now almost all dropped her like a hot stone, there are still hundreds of brainless mugs willing not only to tweet meaningless messages of fake or other “supportive” “concern” to her but even to continue to send money to her. As of today, 636 utter mugs are still signed up to her Patreon “grift”, giving her thousands of pounds a month for nothing.

Against stupidity, even the gods struggle in vain” [Schiller, Die Jungfrau von Orleans].

[Update, same day: Patreon now gives the number of “Jack Monroe” mugs as 522, not 636, so it seems that quite a few are, albeit belatedly, waking up to the scam].

I was looking at the tweets of those now “supporting” “Jack Monroe” on Twitter: almost all 50-75 years old, seemingly all white people; some supporting her because of her supposed “non-binary” lifestyle; quite a few seemingly mentally odd or disturbed. No young people, no ethnic minorities. Ironic, in a way, looking at her pronouncements over the years.

I think that the “Jack Monroe” scam will be an interesting, if minor, footnote to the future socio-cultural history of Britain in the 2010-2023(?) era.

An interesting and unusual take on the “Jack Monroe” scam.

The human cost of war is terrible— on both sides.

Reminiscent of the exploits of Michael Wittman after the Normandy Landings in 1944:

Michael Wittmann (22 April 1914 – 8 August 1944) was a German Waffen-SS tank commander during the Second World War. He is known for his ambush of elements of the British 7th Armored Division during the Battle of Villers-Bocage on 13 June 1944. While in command of a Tiger I tank, Wittmann destroyed up to 14 tanks, 15 personnel carriers and two anti-tank guns within 15 minutes for the loss of his own tank…Wittmann became a cult figure after the war thanks to his accomplishments as a “panzer ace” (a highly decorated tank commander), part of the portrayal of the Waffen-SS in popular culture.”

My view of Liz Truss, published a year ago when she was Foreign Secretary, amuses me, looking back now, months after she was —disastrously— “Prime Minister” for a few weeks.

From the newspapers

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11690425/US-general-warns-British-Army-no-longer-regarded-level-fighting-force-sources-say.html

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has reportedly been told by a senior US general that the British army is no longer considered a top-level fighting force.

Decades of cuts are said to have led to a decline in war-fighting capability, which needs to be reversed faster than planned in light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Bottom line… it’s an entire service unable to protect the UK and our allies for a decade,’ one defence source said.”

[Daily Mail/Sky News]

  • The army would run out of ammunition ‘in a few days’ if needed to fight.
  • The UK couldn’t defend its skies against the level of missile strikes Ukraine is enduring.
  • It would take at least five years for the army to be ready with a war-fighting division of 25,000 to 30,000 troops, supported by tanks, artillery and helicopters.
  • Around 30% of UK forces on high readiness are reservists, unable to mobilise within NATO timelines.
  • Most army vehicles, including tanks, were built 30 to 60 years ago with replacements not due for years.”

[Daily Mail]

Defend” from what? “Defend” from whom? The historical and/or traditional enemies of the UK —France, Germany, Spain, Denmark— are now not enemies and unlikely to replay that role.

Forget “allies“, if by that is meant any states, in Eastern Europe etc, “allies” by reason only of belonging to NATO. They are not really “allies” at all.

The only System-suggested “enemy” on the horizon is Russia, anyway. The old Soviet Union was a genuine threat, to the UK, to the whole of Western Europe. The new Russia cannot even (yet) defeat the forces of Ukraine, let alone mount an attack on NATO territory, which would involve fighting the armies and airforces of the Baltic states, Poland, Germany, and France, among others, long before Russian forces got to within any close distance to the UK.

Apart from that, the whole Soviet ideology was (overall) aggressive and expansionist (they claimed not, and that they were mainly or entirely defensive). It might be more accurate to say that the Soviet political protocol was defensive, but that their military protocols were mainly geared to the swiftly offensive.

Whatever the truth of that, the fact is that the Russia of 2023 has no wish to take over Western Europe, and no Marxist-Leninist ideology to underpin any such wish. The whole idea is ludicrous.

Russia may want to take over Eastern Ukraine, possibly even the whole of Ukraine, together (maybe) with a few other bits and pieces such as the “state” of Moldova, but no more. It neither wants to go further nor is even capable of going further. Realpolitik.

Meanwhile, while NWO/ZOG political drones such as Ben Wallace fulminate against Russia, and feed arms and money to the Jew dictator Zelensky in Kiev, Britain is falling to pieces internally, in every way, and thousands of non-white migrant-invaders are landing on our beaches weekly, even daily, with no opposition from our Army, Navy, or Air Force, nor even from the completely useless “Border Force”.

Au contraire, they, and non-governmental agencies such as the RNLI, are actually ferrying the invaders to our ports.

There is another aspect: the quality of both officers and men (and now women too, who comprise 10%-15% of the UK armed forces).

Incidentally, the Daily Mail also reports that “Earlier today, it was reported Ukraine needs new weapons and faster deliveries to confront a ‘very tough’ situation of constant attacks by Russian forces in the eastern Donetsk region.

The fact is that, despite huge losses on the Russian side, the forces of the Kiev regime have suffered equally-huge losses in absolute terms, which means that they have suffered even greater losses in proportionate terms.

HMRC

When I myself had serious problems with HMRC, a decade or so ago, which problems stemmed in part from as long ago as the early 1990s, I found the HMRC to be a stunningly-incompetent, shambolic, almost insanely-run organization, to an extent that I quite frankly found hard to believe. “Kafka-esque” would be an accurate description.

Some HMRC employees were also very unpleasant. I think that many were sacked about a year later. I had a great deal of trouble from that “organization”, but in the end they just gave up, and told me that the matter was being treated as closed. No reason was given. They just went away, to put it politely.

Strange. I have often found in life that, when I am confronted with a serious problem, am threatened, and look as if I shall be unable to defend myself, I am then saved by some force or grace that often seems to pass all understanding. Organizations are defeated or give up, evil people are restrained, or become bankrupt or, indeed, die, in fact.

“Lobsang Rampa”

Happened to see the blog article below by one Kristine de Abreu, which is about the “Tibetan monk” known as “Lobsang Rampa” (actually, an English plumber from either Plympton, Devon, or Swanage in Dorset): https://explorersweb.com/lobsang-rampa/.

Amusing and interesting, though I already knew most of the basic facts, and had known them since the late 1970s.

Around 1978, I had several “Lobsang Rampa” books in paperback, and I knew at least one other person who also owned a number of copies. In fact, even the first book by “Lobsang Rampa”, out of twenty, sold hundreds of thousands of copies, and many of his works went through numerous printings.

I reproduce the concluding part of the blog article:

Lobsang Rampa tapped into man’s desire to escape the ordinary. Writer David Michie makes a fair point when addressing the topic on his blog, davidmichie.com: “I suspect he made them up, cobbling together his own version of what he’d like Tibetan Buddhism to say…There weren’t too many real lamas around to contradict him.” 

That era provided fertile ground for Rampa. The cultural scene was changing rapidly, and people were open to accepting alternative beliefs. The East was still an exotic mystery. Once his story caught the public imagination, there were few sources to contradict his claims.

Although Lobsang Rampa had fraudulent motives, his works encouraged an interest in Tibetan culture and Buddhism. They also brought much-needed attention to the Tibet Independence Movement. Even the Dalai Lama, who opposed his works and discredited his story, conceded to him this one point. Rampa became an unlikely poster boy for the Tibetan cause, and his books still have a cult following.

We today are rather accustomed to fraud and fakery, from the small-scale “Jack Monroe” and Julia Grace Patterson type of “grifting”, through the large-scale theft, fraud and background of “Robert Maxwell” and the like, and right up to the sort of fraud and fakery which is on a vast scale, such as much of the “holocaust” farrago (particularly the “gas chambers” tall tales), much of the incredible and recent “Covid” nonsense (the facemask nonsense being only part of that), and deliberate political scams such as “Iraqi missiles could hit London in 15 minutes” and “Russia wants to invade Western Europe” (and so we must, it is proclaimed, “stand with Ukraine to save democracy” etc…).

Not to mention “Black Lives Matter”, and much of the “climate change” stuff.

The cartoon below pokes fun at some recent excrescences:

Still, as the Dalai Lama has apparently pointed out in respect of Lobsang Rampa, even a book or other cultural item that is largely untrue can have at least some positive results, certainly some large-scale results either way. Look at the history of the Mormons. A basically fake religion which, however, created Salt Lake City and various other things of value, such as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Come to that, what about the Turin Shroud? The Roman Catholic Church does not endorse it as “true” (as the shroud used to cover the body of Jesus Christ), but endorses it only as “an aid to faith”.

In fact, much of what most people think of as “History” (with a capital “H”) is not 100% or (in some cases) even 50% accurate. Examples include the two revolutions in the Russia of 1917, the story of British Empire (in the past thought of as almost-immaculate, but now often —and even less accurately— judged by many silly people to be a long-term disgrace). Then there is the story of National Socialism, Hitler, and the Second World War, but we cannot even start to consider that here.

Life is a great deal more complicated than many prefer to believe.

The so-called “far right” activists of Idaho have, by chance or wit, implemented the primary dictum of Clausewitz, “to create first a secure base“. That is in essence what I have been suggesting should happen in the UK, possibly in the South West of England, leaving aside some ideological and/or cultural divergences or differences.

Most horse racing in England does not involve cruelty these days. There have been many advances in the care and welfare of horses over the years, though minor improvements are still necessary. Rather disturbing that so many seem to think that such a traditional part of British and especially English life should be banned.

Part-Jew nasty little blot, George Osborne, talking about how great is HS2, and how good things such as the motorway system have been. There is a contrary view.

I myself remember, when aged about 21 (1976-77), the sections of the M25 in Surrey still largely unbuilt; at that time, I lived near the top of Reigate Hill, very easy walking distance from what is now the roundabout/interchange at Junction 8 of the M25. The M25 running east from there was nearly finished, but the bit running west was still being constructed.

Indeed, as a child (early/mid 1960s), I recall an England almost entirely devoid of motorway. In many respects it was better that way, though I concede that that may be regarded as a “Little Englander” or even “Luddite”, point of view.

When the motorway system was put in place, driving long distances became much easier. However, a certain character was lost, and that loss continued and deepened in the 1990s and up to the present day, made worse by the cancerous growths of new housing projects (“boxes for people”, if you like). I suppose that anyone under 40 —or even 50— would struggle to understand, though.

Ukraine— stray thoughts

Let us take the probably-mistaken idea that “Ukraine is winning” to the max, to the reductio ad absurdum. Let us suppose that the forces of the Kiev regime expel Russian forces from all of pre-2014 Ukrainian territory, including Crimea. What then? Does Russia, or Putin, just accept that? Is that the end? I think not.

Ukrainian forces cannot cross the borders of Russia, even marginally, without provoking not only a response from the Russian Government but also from the Russian people, who would then be “triggered”, as people now say, to defend “Holy Russia”, their native land or “rodina“.

For the first time since the incursion/invasion of 2022, the Russian Government would then enjoy almost-unqualified public support in fighting the invading forces of the Kiev regime.

It is unlikely, though, that the Kiev-regime forces can in fact expel Russian forces from Ukrainian or former Ukrainian territory. Russia has a far greater population, a functioning economy, vast economic resources, and a nuclear backstop.

The logic seems to be that either Russia prevails in the present conflict, or that it is pushed out, only to then return with far greater numbers and might within a year or two.

In the end, Russia will annex Ukraine east of the Dnieper, whatever happens in the meantime. Unless a major East-West hot war starts first.

Reading that 2022 blog post, I am reminded that LBC radio is owned lock, stock and barrel by a Jew. See the post itself for details. It explains much about the attitudes taken by LBC presenters and editors.

In fact, I should say that that blog post from a year ago has held up well, with the exception of my prediction of Russian incursion into Ukraine (correct in itself but wrong in its overestimation of the capabilities of the Russian forces).

Saturday quiz

Well, this week brings another victory for me over political journalist John Rentoul. He scored 5/10, but I trumped that with 7/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 3, and 8.

Ukraine

As I blogged yesterday, it looks as though no breakthrough will be made on either side until after the thaw of the spring gives way to summer. I still have in my mind my dream (blogged about a few days ago) about 1 July being the start of a war, perhaps one involving the whole of Europe.

In the meantime, I am assuming that the Russian forces will continue to degrade the infrastructure of Ukraine in the major centres, particularly Kiev area.

Peace talks have effectively been ruled out by the Jew Zelensky. The pre-condition for even a limited ceasefire seems to be that Russia gives up all territory within the pre-2014 Ukraine borders, including Crimea. For Russia, that is unthinkable. After all, even if the forces of the Kiev regime were to achieve total victory, they would be in no better position than if Russian forces were to withdraw now. That being so, there is no incentive for Russia to withdraw now, even were it willing to do so.

The NWO/ZOG centres are now funnelling arms to the Kiev regime on a scale thought impossible 11 months ago. Russia will probably thus be pushed into a massive offensive when summer comes.

The one sure way to finish off the Zelensky regime in Kiev is to take and occupy Kiev, or (appalling though that would be from any humanitarian point of view) to flatten it.

The “resistance” to Russian occupation in even the non-Russian parts of the Donbass and the general south of Ukraine has been patchy, though the Kiev-regime special forces have scored a few notable assassinations etc.

What that says to me is that, if the Russian forces can take the whole of Eastern Ukraine (Ukraine east of the Dnieper), the Kiev regime forces will find it hard to recover that territory by any combination of external force and internal “resistance”. External force alone would have to accomplish any such mission.

It may be that that is why Zelensky wants hundreds of tanks, the ideal force for such a mission.

In the east of Ukraine, outside the Donbass, Kharkov is the major city (the largest in Ukraine outside Kiev itself). If Kharkov can be taken and held, the rest of Eastern Ukraine outside the Donbass consists of sparsely-populated countryside with a relatively small number of small cities, towns and villages.

All the same, Kiev is the prize, for strategic, historical, and propaganda reasons.

Put a beggar on a horse and he rides it to death” [German proverb].

Looks as though my blog comments about half-Jew Raab, from several years ago, and over several years, have held up pretty well, if I say so myself.

Sending hundreds of tanks to Ukraine (from all over Europe and the USA) is a massive escalation. In reality, even one nuclear missile on London = the UK finished for a hundred years or more. Even one nuclear missile on each of New York, LA, San Francisco, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Houston, Miami, Chicago, Boston = USA finished for decades, maybe a hundred years or more.

Yes, Russia’s major cities and military centres too, but does that help us? No.

This is not the way to go. The escalation has to stop, and then be reversed.

The present UK Defence Secretary is what was once termed “a passed-over major“, a former officer who, when serving, was unlikely ever to reach senior command. Not someone who can be relied on now.

As a matter of fact, Wallace was a mere captain, not even a major, by the end of his service. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Wallace_(politician)#Early_life.

That Tom Harwood person is just another pseudo-national traitor to the people of Britain and the peoples of Europe.

That was what happened in the Royal Navy and the U.S. Navy.

I recall that, when I first lived in the USA, in 1989 or 1990, the first US Navy ship to go mixed-sex was deployed to the Gulf. An aircraft-carrier, I think. The sailors did not object to nearly 100 women sailors joining the crew, but their wives certainly did! With some reason: when the deployment finished, it turned out that about 90 of the —less than 100— women on board had been made pregnant…

As for the Royal Navy, it matters little now, because the Royal Navy scarcely exists as an effective force. Apart from the paucity of ships, there is the question of the quality of many of the officers and men.

I happened to see about 15 mins of a documentary about a British warship. About a third of the complement seemed to be women. The junior officers (men and women) seemed to be incredibly dim, and rather wet (in a non-oceanic way). Drunk, too.

As for the crew, their shore leave in Italy ended with many drunk and near-incapable. Admittedly, rather an old naval tradition, but it was unpleasant to see, especially, the female members of the crew so drunk that they were unable to walk, falling into the gutter in their short skirts, just as they presumably did in the “left behind” UK towns from where many of them must have originated.
