Whatever the truth of the Ukraine atrocity reports, it is ironic that much of the venom against Russia comes from people in the USA, some influential. You would hardly know that, ever since the Second World War, the USA has been committing atrocities of all sorts (from officially-approved ill-treatment and torture right through to wiping out whole populations with atomic bombs), and against not only enemies in the field but also civilian populations. Where? Where not (almost): Germany, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon (etc).
“The world’s leading medical journal has conceded that the Covid pandemic could have been sparked by a laboratory leak and admits that the virus may have been engineered by scientists.
...this is a remarkable turnaround for the 199-year-old Lancet, which printed an infamous article condemning suggestions of a lab leak as ‘conspiracy theories’.
However, the journal – which says the world should take ‘seriously’ both main hypotheses – has also suggested the virus could be linked to laboratories in the US, provoking fears it is still promoting China’s cause rather than good science.“
Will someone, anyone (that one Canadian) step forward?
I myself have never had the “Covid” “vaccine(s)”, let alone the supposed “boosters”. I know a few people who have had them. Unpleasant but probably temporary side-effects in a few cases, but in others far more serious problems, including two people, both younger than me (I am 66) and without any history of heart problems, who have both had to have heart surgery recently; one triple by-pass, one quadruple by-pass.
Same as Canada and Trudeau, mutatis mutandis. Is there not one New Zealander…(?)
We can see this in, inter alia, the whole “Covid” situation. Not least, the increasing realization that many of the leaders and leading propagandists of the various countries, and particularly the most important countries of the West, are part of a pretty tight cabal or series of cabals.
Look at, say Jacinda Ardern. Not just Prime Minister of New Zealand, but before that operating at a high level, more or less behind the scenes, in the Labour Party in the UK. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacinda_Ardern.
There are probably other, far less public, groups, but all such groups form one basic over-group.
I have often blogged about the 33-year cycle: 2022, 1989, 1956, 1923 etc. World-historic years betokening huge socio-political change in the world.

Corbyn has returned to his comfort-zone— playing at “revolutionaries” at pointless and stupid Central London demonstrations.
“An ape in a silk suit is still an ape” [old Russian proverb].
A proper government would machine-gun hostile invaders on the beaches, or before they reach shore. That was what warmongering old Churchill wanted to do to any German invaders in 1940, and these untermenschen, and any children they will have, are a far bigger threat to Britain’s future than the German Army ever could have been.
Well, I beat political journalist John Rentoul again this week, but not by much— 6/10 as against his self-awarded 5.5/10 . I too could have awarded myself another half-point, re. question 4. Apart from that one, I (also) did not know the answers to questions 3, 5, and 6.
The broad-front, multi-pronged attack on Europe and on European-race societies
The “trans” nonsense (about 99% is nonsense) is just part of a campaign by secretive cabals to destroy white European-race society, a campaign being carried on across a broad front.
“Trans” stuff, the more general LGBTQXYZ stuff, “Black Lives Matter” and general “anti-racist” (99% anti-white) propaganda, most of the “climate change” propaganda, anti-British Empire propaganda, the blacks inserted into every “British” (Swedish, Danish, German etc) TV show, news broadcast, TV drama, TV soap, and TV ad, as well as the long-running “holocaust” fakery, hoaxes and propaganda, the “Covid” “panicdemic”, and now all the “I stand with Ukraine” hullabaloo.

I cannot believe the effort that sex offenders put out in order to engage in their activities. Seems a big waste of energy and time to me. I suppose that that means that I am guilty of the mortal sin of sloth, but I prefer being my kind of sinner to their kind of sinner…
“Jack Monroe”, the “Bootstrap Cook”
As I have blogged previously, I myself hold no animus against “Jack Monroe” (originally Melissa Hadjicostas— half Greek-Cypriot), aka “the Bootstrap Cook”. It may be that her activity is of use to some people.
I myself am unlikely to use much of her work, partly because some of the recipes she puts out (and that I have read…admittedly a fairly small number) result in dishes that (to me, or in my opinion, looking at photos) look like a dog’s dinner, and partly because the recipes seem, often, to be heavy on carbohydrate, which I think is not good in a country plagued by type-2 diabetes (though I take her point, made on TV, about it being better for people to eat something not completely healthy than to eat nothing, and that it is wrong that so many in our country have to make that choice).
[actually, in the interest of fairness, I just looked at some of her other recipes, and many arein fact not“a dog’s dinner” to look at, though I have to say that a number do still give me that impression; and yet others are scarcely “recipes” at all, such as some very basic pasta suggestions].
I have not wanted to involve myself in the recent furore about whether or not “Bootstrap Cook” has been a little —indeed, more than a little— “economical with the truth” about a number of matters from her own history, and about whether she has been, or is, financially “transparent”.
I have my own opinion, based purely on what I have read on Twitter and elsewhere, and suffice to say that I shall certainly not be donating to, or buying from, the “Bootstrap Cook”. In any case, she probably has a good deal more money than me, again based on what I have read. Still, if people want to give her money, and cannot find a deserving person or cause instead, well, that is their concern, assuming that they are compos mentis.
Loonies like that green-hair seem to be coming out (so to speak) of the woodwork all over the place now. Often nasty, often (in my view) mentally disturbed. This is destructive of society. I suppose that, in the days of the Reich, such odd and unpleasant individuals would probably have ended up in a mental hospital (or, perhaps, a labour camp).
The one good thing about Boris-idiot’s time as Prime Minister was that at least some attention was given to animal welfare, wildlife protection, and the environment. Liz Truss has no feeling for that, so even those small steps are not to continue.

“Diverse” enrichment #999
Maybe, in the end, one can find at least one opinion by those in the enemy camp with which one can actually agree. It is indeed rare for me to agree with anything said by very active Jewish Zionist, David Collier.
As for that ghastly African “professor” based in the USA (an untenured associate professor at Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh), I blogged about her tasteless and absurd views last week.
“The poor are always with us“, according to Jesus Christ but, at the same time, policy can either reduce their numbers to a minimum, or expand them to a tenth, a quarter, or even half or more of the population. Policy is key. Governmental action or inaction is key.
I was wondering why some “dark-skinned man” would do that. No-one has as yet been charged (at time of writing), so I feel free to speculate.
There is a “conspiracy theory” around that, for some reason unexplained, the coffin does not contain the body of the late Queen.
Was the man arrested trying to “prove”, by finding the coffin empty, or without a body, that the late Queen has been buried already, as required, in particular, in Judaism? I do not know, of course, though my understanding is that the 24-hour rubric for Jewish burial is in fact not rigid, and can be extended for days, or even longer. On the face of it, that theory seems unlikely to be correct.
In any case, the arrested person could not (I presume) have actually opened the coffin. The lid (again, my presumption) must have been screwed down and/or sealed.
Schizophrenia is far more prevalent in the blacks and browns as compared to white Europeans. Maybe that is the explanation for what has happened.
Sometimes, mentally-disordered persons (of any/all races) carry out such attacks. A crazed ex-monk hijacked a plane in France about 40 years ago. His demand was that the Pope release the details of the “Third Secret of Fatima” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Secrets_of_F%C3%A1tima#Third_secret]. I believe that the hijacker was arrested and incarcerated in a mental hospital, at least at first. He was imprisoned later.
185-mile range. Moscow itself is, at closest point, less than 300 miles from the Ukrainian border. A missile with a range of 185 miles could hit important cities such as Kaluga, Voronezh, and Volgograd (former Stalingrad), among others.
People should not be treated in such a shabby manner (by the NHS system, not staff), yet the story above is almost commonplace in some parts of the UK.
The NHS has some wonderful people in it, a minority also not so good, but what really lets it down is maladministration. Money is a large part of the problem, but is not the whole story by any means.
There is also the point that the UK population has increased from about 55 million half a century ago to maybe as many as 70 million today, mainly (in fact almost entirely) because of mass immigration, and also births to immigrant mothers. Yes, quite a few non-Brits work in the NHS, but that hardly outweighs the pressure from FIFTEEN MILLION more potential patients (who should not even be in this country).
Pressure from immigration etc would not have been a factor in the above story (which comes from Northern Ireland), but it is a factor in much of the UK.
I recall camping only about 20-30 feet from Arthur’s Stone sometime in the early 1980s. My then girlfriend and I just happened upon it one dark late evening; in fact we had never heard of it. A convenient place to stop the car and pitch a small tent. Very quiet. Zero traffic (except us).
Sounds as if it is a bit of a tourist destination now, but then I think not. I do not think we heard a single car pass in the night until, at about 0200 hrs, a torch was shone into my face. A policeman. He asked whether we had heard a car pass in the past hour; we said no, we were sleeping. He said OK and left. I expect that he made that story up as an excuse for disturbing us.
Arthur’s Stone is about 15 miles west of Hereford, and is on a very narrow and little-used (even now, I expect) lane. I have trekked, at various times, across much of the countryside between Hereford and Hay-on-Wye and around (but many many years ago, in much younger and far fitter days).
Looking at Google Earth, I see that it now has a low wooden fence, about 2 ft high, around it. Don’t recall that, but (as we know) memory, even my memory, can be faulty.
So the virtue-signalling Guardian’s editor has a salary of £510,000 a year! No wonder the Guardian‘s one-time “socialism” is rather muted these days…
Incidentally, I believe that Ms. Viner’s personal “partner” makes even more than she does.
“GMG also paid its former chief executive Annette Thomas £795,000 after she left following a clash with Ms Viner over the direction of the business. Ms Thomas received a “one-off” payment on top of her £630,000 base salary, meaning she made £1.5m in 15 months on the job.“
“Annual revenues at GMG climbed 13pc to £255.8m and profits rose nearly four-fold to £11.7m.
The Guardian does not have a paywall but instead relies on donations made by readers.
Over one million people made monthly contributions of at least £1 a month, while another 500,000 readers made one-off payments.“
Incredible, really: a million mugs give £1+ each monthly to the Guardian, meaning £12 million a year, while another half-million mugs make one-off payments each year, meaning £500,000+, probably £1M or more.
So… the profits of nearly £12M are because those million or so mugs are donating about the same amount, and maybe several million pounds more. Those donations make the difference between insolvency and significant profitability.
Meanwhile, the editor gets paid half a million pounds —and more— annually.
The wonderful world of pseudo-socialism.
Those invaders will be, in the best scenario, effectively useless, and a millstone round the collective neck of the British people. At worst, criminals and/or terrorists.
The problem, of course, is that whichever way the masses vote (I myself never vote), they vote (in reality) for globalism and open borders, because all System “democratic” parties are signed up to that agenda.

Ehud Barak…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehud_Barak]. Now there’s a name not quite in sync with the others. I wonder what he was up to, bearing in mind the Israeli Intelligence connection with both the Jew Epstein and the half-Jew Ghislaine “Maxwell”.
The perennial NHS crisis. Pretty much every year for 20-30 years. As said, something gamechanging has to be done both about the NHS and about the mass immigration that puts intolerable strain upon it. A national health service such as the NHS should not be run like a massive version of M*A*S*H [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAS*H_(TV_series)].
There is a serious sickness in American life, two symptoms of which include pro-abortion fanaticism and the callousness towards animals seen in, for example, the incredibly evil “declawing” of cats (banned in the UK). Not all Americans, maybe a minority, are involved, but the tendency is there, prominently. Manifestations of practical materialism.

Does not look English, but that could describe half of the population of London.
Tweeters already covered what would be my main suggestion, i.e. to check cctv at the two or three nearest Boots branches.
You do have to be very careful in London now. When I lived in London, and later in Almaty (Kazakhstan), in the mid/late 1990s, I always wore one of my Rolex Seadweller watches (in today’s value, over £10,000).
I doubt that I would do that today, if I had such a watch (in fact, I sold my watches long long ago from necessity…needs must), especially if I used the London Underground (as I often did when in London).
When I lived in Almaty, where (at the time, i.e. 1996-97), credit cards were almost useless, I always carried USD $5,000-$10,000 in a special moneybelt made to look exactly like an ordinary belt. I never had any serious trouble, though there was once a scuffle with a “wild” (unofficial) taxi driver (no real harm done— my sunglasses broken, a good shirt torn, but his face improved after connection with my elbow…).
As a visitor or tourist in a foreign city, you do have to be careful. I was once, 40 years ago, doing some petty nonsense at the now-closed Paddington Green police station [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paddington_Green_Police_Station]. In the reception area. Two Egyptian girls, tourists, came in, wailing. The police desk person could scarcely have been less helpful to them, almost contemptuous, when he heard that one of the girls had had her handbag snatched, along with £800 in it (a great deal higher value then than now, of course; you could probably call it as much as £10,000 in today’s money).
Sadly, the police now are usually useless unless the crime is something they have been told is top-priority, such as cases of murder, “terrorism”, saying rude things online about Jews etc.
I hope that the lady in that Twitter thread gets her stuff back, but it is a long-shot, of course. Her best bet is probably to set up a gofundme appeal, but that will of course not help with the identity documents she lost.
At least the lady’s case has now been taken up by police CID (see below):
People are often careless with bags etc. I found a woman’s strapless bag, a bit like a large wallet, in a shopping trolley in one of the trolley bays in the car park of the Waitrose in the local small town, about a year ago. Opened it out of curiosity before I gave it in to the Waitrose reception desk. Full of cards, dozens of them; quite a bit of cash as well.
A few years ago, not long after sunup, I happened to see a purse on the ground, in a clifftop car park. Inside, nearly £50 in notes, a debit card, and a student rail pass in the name of some girl. I brought it home thinking that it must be fairly local (the rail pass having been issued about 5 miles away), and that the unusual surname might be in the telephone book. No luck, so I gave it to the police at the local police station.
I hope that the girl student got back her cards and money. As to what she might have been doing late at night (presumably) in that clifftop car park, well, that is none of my business…
Incidentally, lest readers of the blog think that I am unnaturally virtuous, I have to admit that, were it a million pounds in a suitcase, my actions might be quite different.
I think that most police forces do not even bother now with mere lost property. After all, their valuable time is taken up by policing the Internet etc…
I had not previously heard of “Oxford Royale Academy”, which sounds like some kind of bullshit scam. In fact, it is a summer school which uses some of the buildings of one or two Oxford colleges. Seems to be a genuine set-up, but what a poor attitude to free speech.

Well, this week brings yet another victory over Blairite political journalist John Rentoul: I trumped his 6/10 with my 8/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1 and 9.
Incidentally, question 7 is (arguably) wrongly put: Ryanair was actually founded in 1984, but I presume that its active operations began in 1985.
Well, all right, but which of the present bunch of Conservative Party leadership contenders has been “good at the job” given to them? Indian “clever boy” Sunak, whose spraying of public money at “furloughed” employees, and at often fraudulent and inactive small businesses, as well as other absurd “Covid”-related nonsense (eg “Test and Trace”) etc, has fuelled the present gathering inflation?
What about Liz Truss, who seems to want war with Russia, and who not long ago embarrassed this country by telling Sergei Lavrov that several indisputably-Russian cities such as Novgorod (between Moscow and Petersburg) were Ukrainian? She only became an MP in the first place on her back.
Kemi Badenoch? Not much can be found that is much against her, and she seems quite intelligent, but of course I could never countenance an African (in her case, Nigerian) as Prime Minister of this country.
Tom Tugendhat? Well, part-Jew, so I would not want him on that basis alone, as well as which he is a “very strong supporter of Israel” [Wikipedia], so that’s a second black mark. Seems to want war, or at least conflict, with Russia, so there’s a third black mark (anyone who seems to actually want war with Russia must be totally idiotic, looking at our inability to protect our population in such a contingency; it would mean the end of this country).
Fourthly, Tugendhat makes much, really too much, of his military experience (at first in whatever the Educational Corps is now called, followed by a TA commission in the Intelligence Corps). Seems that he was mainly a desk soldier, though exact details of his career are lacking, perhaps because politically or operationally sensitive.
Readers will not be surprised to be informed that, for me, Tugendhat comes right at the bottom of the list.
A poor bunch, surely, by any standards, and only two of the five contenders are English, or really/fully British— Penny Mordaunt and Liz Truss.
Penny Mordaunt seems to connect with “ordinary people”, for what that is worth. She is probably not much good, but no worse than the others.

Interesting Saudi Arabian rewilding project
“By 2035, the Royal Commission for AlUla will have:
• Replanted hundreds of native plant species from 56 species of indigenous plants
• Produced 31 million seedlings in its plant nursery
• Planted 10 million trees in nature reserves across AlUla County
• Rehabilitating some 65,000 hectares of degraded land
• Adopted county-wide sustainable land management methods.
Already, more species are returning home to AlUla. Earlier this year 162 animals, including Arabian oryx, sand gazelles, idmi gazelles and Nubian ibex, were reintroduced. And more species are returning on their own.
Emma Gallacher, the project’s Conservation Initiatives Lead, says “Our camera trapping has revealed many species, including Arabian wolf, red fox, Blanford’s fox, Rock hyrax, Cape hare, North African wildcat, Arabian partridge, sand partridge and many more”.”
There must be some way to remove Trudeau and others…
The 2020-2022 period in the UK also showed how many minor functionaries here, in the police and NHS, even supermarket staff, loved having their moment of petty power to order people to adjust their facemask muzzles or move 6ft away from the next slave-citizen.
Time to establish an NHS unit to combat…hypochondria.
I see that quite a few ads on TV are now colouring some element of the film or animation with the Ukrainian blue-and-yellow. One example, a blue/yellow cartoon bird on the side in some ad for (I think it was) insurance or something like that.
In the past day I have seen two or three ads with obvious “pro-Ukraine” (meaning, in effect, pro the Zionist cabal in Kiev) colours.
Are we still pretending that the “Stand with Ukraine” thing is not basically a conspiracy, retailing propaganda which has been swallowed whole by millions of deluded people? Like the “trans” nonsense, “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, it is but one part of a sinister jigsaw.
This (read that report) is a trend that has been going on for 2-3 decades now. I could recount numerous examples from my own experience. One of the least egregious would be that involving a pupil in my own chambers in Exeter (in the early/mid 1990s, I was practising in London, but after working and living in various places overseas from 1996-2002, returned to the practising Bar in SW England in mid-2002).
The pupil to whom I refer (and who shall be nameless, partly out of courtesy but equally because I have actually forgotten her name), was from Northern Ireland.
Now I have to say that I find the Northern Irish accent one of the most difficult in the UK to understand easily but, in addition to that, the girl in question had a pretty bad speech impediment.
You might ask why on Earth someone with a bad speech impediment wanted to go to the Bar in the first place, or was not sidetracked into other career options at an earlier stage, but there it is. Of course, not all barristers spend much of their time in court.
Now, said girl pupil was, like many Bar pupils, far more obliging and pleasant when a pupil (and no doubt trying to get along pleasantly with members of chambers) than she was once taken on as a tenant or —as I think she was, cannot now recall exactly— squatter (a quasi-tenant but with no rights of tenure). I myself only saw her in passing, really, but did note that, once she was actually working as barrister, she seemed rather abrasive, judging admittedly by the very few times I saw her at (though not in) court. I never had any trouble with her myself, and in fact saw little of her.
Now the interesting thing was that not only did chambers (notably in the person of the main Clerk to Chambers) champion that young woman, but claimed that instructing solicitors loved her. Well, maybe. Seems strange to me that someone with both a speech impediment and an accent that was more like a gargle could be at the English Bar doing court work, but there we are.
I harbour a suspicion that people tend to bend over backwards to be nice, so to speak, to the physically-disabled, as many do also to some of the ethnic minorities. That is fine as far as it goes, but not when it amounts to a kind of lie.
Incidentally, I seem to remember that the person noted above returned, in the end, to her native Ulster, and maybe left the practising Bar.
Digressing further, I happened, out of curiosity today, to look at the website of the successor chambers to the one to which I belonged in Exeter from 2002-2008 (and which, an amalgam of two or three sets, is now the largest in the South West outside Bristol). I saw that several people that I liked are still there, and I saw that not only (as I knew already) is my old head of chambers now “His Honour” (a Circuit Judge) but that someone else I knew in chambers, a former magistrates’ clerk, with an encylopaedic knowledge of some aspects of (in particular) criminal law, is now also “His Honour”. Unless it is just someone with an identical name, but I think not.
That last was a nice little man, very polite and pleasant, who wore his considerable knowledge lightly. I seem to recall that he had written a well-received book on sentencing. Glad to see that his knowledge and diligence has been rewarded.
I was amused to see that two people who had rather more than a spat in chambers are now both members of that set. I liked both of them. One was a then-young man who was very eager to progress chambers (my wife called him a “Young Turk” for his enthusiastic diligence, but in these dumbed-down times, I suppose I shall have to explain that he was not a real Turk!). He was married to a pretty young woman whom I believe I met once at some chambers reception or other.
The other barrister, also young, was an ex-solicitor whose grandfather had founded one of the largest firms of solicitors in the South West. A very pleasant person.
Those people, with others in chambers, used to go shooting together, an activity of which I thoroughly disapproved. I disapprove of all hurt done to animals, particularly for sport or “fun”. I even disapprove of shooting humans, under most circumstances. Ironically, most of those I liked best in chambers were the shooters.
Anyway, one day, those two members of chambers were out shooting when a pheasant fell onto the head of the wife of the “Young Turk” and knocked her out in the field. Whether that preceded or not the affair that she apparently had with the other young barrister, I know not. It later transpired that, after much bad blood, I was the only member of chambers to be unaware of the feud that ensued, my mind being occupied by other matters (or as my wife would say, “in the clouds”) and, also, the fact that I was, by then, only spending half the month in the UK, the rest in France and some other countries.
I suppose that the two former antagonists have either buried the hatchet or (and/or) come to the realistic conclusion that that set is more or less “the only game in town” (in Exeter) now. Time heals all wounds, they say (though I remain doubtful of that, speaking generally). The events in question were after all some 15 or 16 years ago now.

Interesting analysis, and I can agree with much of it, though I do not accept that neurotic bighead, Gordon Brown’s, bailout of the bank swine was right at all— better to have let them go bust, imprison the wealthy bankers, then step in to help those with say £200,000 or less on deposit; and let the affluent and wealthy go smoke.
I agree that the “austerity” nonsense of the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne was disastrous, causing misery to millions without in any way dealing with the real problems of the financial sector and “national debt”.
This is what is coming for all of us if we do not take on the NWO/ZOG state(s) of Evil now.
I may be wrong, but it strikes me that NWO/ZOG is using Canada as a testing ground now because Canada has only a fragile sense of its own identity, and that identity crisis has been made worse by the importation of millions of non-whites from all over the world: Indians, Pakistanis, Chinese, Arabs etc.
Combine that with the strong Jew element in (especially) Montreal and you get a country with little real self-hood. Without a binding racial, ethnic, religious or cultural connection, there is only force to hold together such a country.
There must be one Canadian willing to remove Trudeau and so fire a warning shot over the bow of the NWO/ZOG transnational police state.
The same as with the “groomed girls” in English towns and cities. A little intelligent and commonsense “racism” would have saved most of them.
The censorship online is increasing. Most of the interesting Twitter accounts run by individuals are now gone: mine, and those of others, such as David Icke, Alison Chabloz; innumerable others. Looking at my blog posts from even a year ago, there are gaps, sometimes large, where tweeters of tweets I embedded have been expelled.
As previously blogged, it is tragic that two peoples so closely-entwined historically as the Russian and the Ukrainian have come to this pass after only 30 years out of a mutual history stretching back over a thousand years.
Sovietism was, after all, fundamentally Jewish rather than Russian in its genesis.
As far as the present situation is concerned, its immediate roots go back to the 1990s, when the “West” (fundamentally the USA, as main component of the “New World Order” [NWO] proclaimed by President Bush snr.) treated the former Soviet Union as if colonial territory, as if the Soviet Union and so Russia had been defeated. Of course, there was some truth in that, but only some. The Soviet Union/Russia was defeated from within, mainly. President Bush snr. however, crowed that “we won the Cold War“. Again, partly but not entirely true.
NATO expanded, and obviously has it in mind to expand again, to include Ukraine once circumstances allow.
Putin is now attempting to redraw the map of Europe. This is a strategic move on the highest level. A seizure of Kiev, the Eastern Ukraine (i.e. Ukraine east of the Dnieper river), and the entire Black Sea littoral (including Odessa) will immeasurably strengthen Russia in the long term.
It is almost laughable to suggest that Putin will give up such a plan, and such an invasion, as the price of a stilted “summit” meeting with the apparently almost ga-ga President of the United States.
Biden cannot even promise that NATO will not one day include Ukraine. He will not withdraw American troops and planes from the Baltic states and Poland. In fact, Biden can offer nothing except vague reassurances, meaningless and entirely cynical.
I do not think that Putin and his people imagine that many will take seriously the “Gleiwitz radio station” disinformation presently being put out by the Russian authorities. They are doing it pro forma, almost tiredly. Cynicism rules on both sides.
Putin knows that, short of starting a nuclear war between NATO and Russia, there are few arrows in the Western quiver. Critical words, economic sanctions, possible help to anti-Russian irregular forces in Ukraine (if the Kiev regime were to be toppled); little more.
The Russian invasion must take place. It must be swift. It must be overwhelming, and I hope that it can be with as little harm to civilians and others as possible.
The Ukrainian people must know now that the “West” cannot be relied upon. The US, UK, and other embassies have, as I predicted, already fled from Kiev to Lvov, 340 miles to the west.
As can be seen on the immediately-above map, before 1954, Crimea was not part of Ukraine politically, while Lvov (in the yellow area) was within the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1919, and then Poland until 1939.
For me, apart from being interested in the situation for itself, the interest lies in what this whole series of events might mean for Europe as a whole.
The Ukraine situation has exposed the weakness and disunity of “the West”. The United States is shown as an emperor without clothes. It has immense military-destructive power but little else. Its failures to change the mindset, or the people, of Iraq and Afghanistan, are daily obvious. Its great military power is now matched by by both Russia and China, even on the nuclear-weapons level. Its society is failing from the inside out. It was led by a squawking parrot (Trump) and now by a semi-demented semi-invalid (Biden).
Despite the protestations of the political pygmies of Western Europe, the likes of Boris-idiot, Macron, and Liz Truss (can we even mention her in a serious study?), it is clear that the West does not “speak with one voice“; indeed not even the EU.
The American, British, and French leaderships are running around like headless chickens. Macron’s vanity and ambition has resulted in him being played like a fish by Putin; Macron does not even realize it.
As for unimpressive idiots such as “Boris” and Liz Truss, they are just “noises off”, without any importance at all.
If Putin can take over the most important third or so of Ukraine (the areas already mentioned above), and if the NWO powers then try to foment a kind of civil war (as in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria etc), then Russia might be more inclined to help social nationalism triumph in Western Europe. A silver lining to the dark cloud of war.
“…veteran comedian Jack Dee said he did not believe the state should intervene on ‘what can and can’t be said’, adding: ‘I think we’re sophisticated enough as an audience to discern what we want without calling the cops‘.” [Daily Mail].
Well, that claim about Ukraine is certainly true; maybe that is why the Ukraine has been such a corrupt and unpleasant mess (and riddled with Jewish exploitation) for the past 30 years.
That is also true…
Putin (leaving aside “diplomatic” untruths) is far more likely to tell the truth than a perpetual liar such as “Boris” Johnson.
Of course, “fascist” is routinely misused, as here, but his main point about Canada is valid, as is his point about “the virus”.
I suppose that people think that Gates is some kind of genius because of his huge amounts of money.
…and about the agenda of the transnational conspiracy…
Caroline Green would love to impose pseudo-“green” dictatorship on the UK —though there is nothing “green” about unlimited immigration, for one thing— but —thankfully— she is a political irrelevance.
I notice that Victoria Macdonald is the Health and Social Care Editor for Channel 4 News. She is also a New Zealander, and I have never yet met a New Zealand woman who was anything other than a half-witted pain in the ****.
Fracking and/or nuclear are unnecessary. Britain can get cheap gas from Russia if it stops being a poodle for the “USA” (in reality, NWO). I have blogged about that for years
That must be the most inventive excuse I have heard yet for why the almost deified NHS so often performs badly.
There should be a popular response to this conspiracy. Tweeting, blogging and, a fortiori, “voting” (in a rigged game) will not do it. Much as I should like to say what might be an appropriate response, the ever-increasing police-state repression effectively prevents me from being explicit, so my readers will have to read between the lines.
freedom in cultural life (art, science, religion, education, the media), and
uncoerced cooperation in a freely contractual economic life.”
The pendulum will swing back, once Boris-idiot is removed. The Ides of March are not far off, both literally and metaphorically. All that the Conservative Party has to do is find one MP who is not a complete deadhead…
In the final analysis, there need be no general election until late 2024. A lot can happen in 2 years or so.
Biden really ought to be living in a care setting of some kind, not posing as leader of what, long long ago, was often called “the free world”. Biden is very obviously a monkey on a stick, controlled by (((others))). Just like that clown in Kiev.
The huge amount of sexual abuse and general abuse of English girls by non-whites over several decades could have been reduced to a low level had those girls only been taught a little intelligent “racism” —and real history and geopolitics— instead of being infected with multikulti poison by guilty individuals and groups.
Talking about being infected by poison:
A disturbing story
Heard (admittedly at third-hand) a very disturbing story. It concerns a man who was driving home from or through Southampton. He apparently decided to stop the car for a while to take a few minutes’ rest. Why he stopped, I do not know; I myself never stop the car even on a cross-Europe journey (in the past; I never go anywhere now), let alone in the UK. In fact, sometimes I should stop and take a rest rather than drive on relentlessly into the night and snow (or whatever).
So this man (apparently in late fifties or early sixties) was sitting quietly in his parked car when, suddenly, several police cars appeared and boxed him in and, without warning, his door was yanked open and he himself pulled out despite his protesting that he had done nothing, and what had he done etc.
The police then proceeded to throw him roughly to the ground, treat him roughly, and handcuff him behind his back before he was bundled away to the police station. He and his car had already been searched for drugs, without result.
Later, he was released without charge, the police having tested him for drink and drugs (without result) and having explained that the area where he was arrested was known for drug-dealing! Why he particularly was targeted is unknown. Apparently, the man has bruises all over his body, which bruises were photographed. The matter is now in the hands of solicitors and, on the face of it, it looks as if the police are going to end up having to pay him out a goodly sum.
As I say, I have the above “facts” at third hand, via someone I know who was told by a great friend of the victim, that other person being a retired detective of the Metropolitan Police.
Britain is becoming very strange indeed. The police seem to scarcely enforce some laws, or merely record the fact that some crimes have taken place (and have been reported by victims), and often stand by when “protesters” such as “Insulate Britain”, or “Black Lives Matter” block motorways, create chaos in Central London, tear down statues, or vandalize artworks of which they disapprove.
Also, the national scandal of sexual abuse of English girls by non-whites has only been properly investigated sometimes or, in places, often not investigated at all.
Another disturbing story
Listened to part of Radio 4 PM. As usual, a mistake. Some woman writer, whose name I did not catch, and who, despite being a self-flagellating pseudo-liberal multikulti zealot, has now been “cancelled” by her publisher, Picador (part of Pan Macmillan).
Apparently, despite bending over backwards to the multikulti, “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, she was not quite self-flagellating enough for the even more extreme anti-British, anti-white swine coming down the track.
What was so disgusting was her evident desire to bow down to the mob. She was almost in tears as she flagellated herself before what surely must now be the tiny Radio 4 PM audience. She all but said that, simply as a white “middle-class” woman, she deserved “just criticism”. Stalinism come of age in the decadent West…
Pathetic. That woman did not once say anything like “this is disgusting! I deserve freedom of expression, as do others“. No, it was all “I have lost my publisher, my work, my teaching job when I am not really racist…“
The revolution always devours its own children. Soon, people like her will have to beg indulgence from the mob simply for being white. As she in fact now has already done, on radio, on Twitter, and elsewhere…
This situation has been building up for years. There was an understanding, when the Soviet Union collapsed or, more accurately, faded away, that NATO would not expand its membership or operations.
NATO, after all, only existed in the first place as a solidification of the Western alliance of the Second World War, and then only because of the massive Soviet military presence both in the western Soviet Union itself and also in Eastern and Central Europe: the “Pribaltika” (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), Poland, the DDR/East Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and, until 1955, Austria (the last foreign troops occupying Austria left in 1955). NATO was established in 1949, the Warsaw Pact in 1955 (after West Germany joined NATO). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Pact.
The USA (really NWO) also established the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) on the other side of the Eurasian landmass.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact ceased to exist (formally in 1991, but in reality from 1989-90).
There was an opportunity in the early 1990s for a real partnership between the West and the former Soviet Union, but it failed for several reasons: among others, the wish for nominal “independence” on the part of areas that had been part of the Soviet Union and, before then, the Russian Empire; the wish on the part of “Western” companies, law firms etc to exploit Russian and other people and resources; a wish on the part of the NWO to rule Russia, in effect; the collaboration of Jew “oligarchs” with the “Western” gameplan in the Yeltsin era.
The Confederation of Independent States [“CIS”] was, unfortunately, blown apart by the combination of post-Soviet nationalism(s) (in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Georgia etc) and the infiltration of American military activities into the newly-independent states around Russia.
Some of the former satellites (Poland etc), were keen to join NATO after their experience of Soviet occupation, and effective Soviet rule, over many decades.
NATO has, since the 1980s, got involved in South-Central Asia, the Middle East etc. Far from its original geographical area and purpose. It is the NWO battering-ram.
We have seen NATO “pushing the envelope” over recent years; not only in Ukraine, but in Georgia and elsewhere. However, things have now progressed to the point at which Russia cannot accept more encroachment.
The Soviet Union had an ideology of world domination, albeit muted in latter decades. It was a serious danger to Western Europe. Russia now has no such ideology, and is basically defensive. It poses no danger to Western Europe, unless constantly provoked.
The USA is now beefing up the forces of the Kiev government, so Russia would be advised to strike earlier rather than later.
There should be an institute, similar to SS-Ahnenerbe but focussed more on the future rather than (only) on the historical and prehistorical past, to examine all such questions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe.
On this day a year ago
I am, by synchronous co-incidence, just re-reading one of Bentine’s memoirs, The Door Marked Summer. I did have a couple of other books by him, but they were lost, along with most of my 2,000+-book library, when I returned, unwillingly, to the UK from France in 2009.
An interesting character, whom I recall seeing on TV in the early 1970s. A man of many parts, and many talents, though with a few obsessions and, in some respects, narrowness of view. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Bentine.
One of Bentine’s most interesting recounted experiences was when he and his father accompanied someone (obviously some kind of occult initiate) to a hidden place in a Kent wood at night, not long before the Second World War, and where they were greeted by the entire realm of Nature present, animals, birds, insects, and plants.
Great. Let’s invite 5 million Hong Kong Chinese to come and live in Britain. Oh, no, wait…
The invaders are now using larger and better-equipped boats.
I always thought of Canada as a “free” country…not now. Is there no-one who can rid the country of that global-conspiracy puppet?
Was interested to see the proportion of facemask-wearers at Waitrose in the early evening. About 20%. The facemask nonsense has had its time in the sun, at least until what passes for a government in the UK finds an excuse to re-impose the nonsense.
