Historical note: Hitler quotations

I was sent some interesting quotations from Hitler. I do not at present have the citations (probably from Mein Kampf, possibly from the WW2 transcripts published in the 1950s as, in English editions, Hitler’s Table Talk), but will add them as and when. The quotations certainly read as if authentic. I believe them to be authentic.

The ignorance of the broad masses about the inner nature of the Jew, the lack of instinct and narrow-mindedness of our upper classes, make the people an easy victim for this Jewish campaign of lies.

While from innate cowardice the upper classes turn away from a man whom the Jew attacks with lies and slander, the broad masses from stupidity or simplicity believe everything. The state authorities either cloak themselves in silence or, what usually happens, in order to put an end to the Jewish press campaign, they persecute the unjustly attacked.

That sounds just like that which happened to me when I was wrongfully and unlawfully disbarred in October 2016.

“Culturally, the Jew contaminates art, literature, the theatre, makes a mockery of natural feeling, overthrows all concepts of beauty and sublimity, of the noble and the good, and instead drags men down into the sphere of his own base nature. Religion is ridiculed, ethics and morality represented as outmoded until the last props of a nation in its struggle for existence in this world have fallen.

Exactly what has gone on for decades in “British” television and publishing (etc).

[Update, same day: it seems that all three quotations above are, as I thought, from Mein Kampf].

Were there a social-national party and/or movement worth anything, this would be, probably, the moment of lift-off (once the majority of the public start to suffer). As it is, as social-national people we look upon what is happening as mere observers, not active players.

Twitter is rotten. I myself was expelled (“suspended“, in Twitter’s weasel vocabulary) in 2018, after a pack of Jews finally managed, after years of trying, to get Twitter to remove my “account” (“@ianrmillard“).

As I predicted many months ago, Elon Musk turned out to be too intelligent to buy Twitter, once the results of his due diligence enquiries came in. It’s simply a dishonest organization (and one which is basically unprofitable, as most of its history shows).

The “Conservative” Party leadership contest (“leadership“? Those cretins?) amounts to “which do you want, the Indian puppet on a stick, or the white woman puppet on a stick?“.

I really dislike tattoos, especially —though not exclusively— on women.

Perhaps the only thing the SS and orthodox Jews had in common was a prohibition on tattoos, though some (not all) SS officers and men, mainly Waffen-SS, had their blood group tattooed under the arm in case of requiring a transfusion in or immediately after battle. As for Jews, if detained, they were tattooed compulsorily, with a prisoner number.

Serious problem. So many people having to work purely to pay rent to some parasite for (often) a wholly-unsatisfactory dwelling. Not a new problem, but now getting even worse.

The cost of rentals devalues the more basic kinds of work, unjustly rewards rentier parasites, and damages society in a number of ways.

There is another point, looking at that Times report: the sheer pointlessness (from the purely practical perspective) of bothering to get a “degree”, a “master’s degree”, even a “doctorate”, when every other idiot also has one.

The political implications are stark. The average age of outright owners of real property in the UK is now 68. Not so long ago, say 20-40 years, it would have been 50 or even 45.

Those property owners in their sixties, seventies, eighties often own two or more properties (second homes, holiday homes, rented-out homes— sometimes all three in one).

The tiny proportion of people (about 1 in every 200 citizens) about to choose the next Conservative Party leader and so, by default, Prime Minister, are mostly persons over 50, usually over 60, who are (again, not always but often) outright property-owners and, not infrequently buy-to-let or other rentier parasites.

This has real results: last time, that tiny electorate chose Boris-idiot as Prime Minister. This time, either Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak.

Talking of Liz Truss, I have seen the clip of her filmed as the TV debate presenter collapsed. A panicked reaction at first. Is this the person to be in command, overall, of Britain’s nuclear deterrent? Is this the person to decide whether Britain gets into a war with Russia? I hope not, though I don’t want a non-European as Prime Minister either.

The [NWO/ZOG] System is getting desperate to advance their latest 33-year cycle agenda, 2022-2055, therefore we see the “blacks with everything” agenda, the “I stand with Ukraine” silliness, facemask nonsense (and all the other Covid-related stuff), the “trans” nonsense, and much of the “climate change” reportage. All part of an agenda of evil.

Another example:

Regular readers of the blog will already have read of my own experiences, eg https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

All well and good, but Toby Young and the Free Speech Union have never said a word in defence of my free speech rights, nor those of Alison Chabloz and those of Jez Turner (Jeremy Bedford Turner) etc. All attacked by the same pack of (Zionist) Jews.

Leaving aside the rights and wrongs of the rail industry dispute, what we see here is an example of what I have been blogging about for years around the Labour Party, that being that, if you like, the Labour Party has lost its former overall constituency, and has not found a credible role.

The industrial proletariat —the massed ranks of miners, dockers, railwaymen, steelworkers, factory workers, later expanded to include shopworkers etc— has pretty much ceased to exist in the UK.

Whole industries were shut down from, especially, 1980-2000, by reason of changing economic and social landscapes, accelerated by withdrawal of government subsidies.

The former “proletarians” either went into other activities where there existed no tradition of “working class” solidarity, or joined the unemployed, existing on State benefits and, in areas such as the South Wales valleys, on top-ups from disability income given out (in the 1980s) almost unchecked.

The former Labour Party stalwarts had become either Marx’s “lumpenproletariat”, or members of a new group, or perhaps a group with a new label, the “precariat”.

The latter implied a group whose lifestyle and very existence was uncertain from week to week, the polar opposite of those comfortably-off smug core Conservative Party members and voters, who had always been (and often their parents as well) well-paid, perhaps with family money, who had properties owned outright or with easily-paid-off mortgages. People whose lives were —unlike those of the “precariat”— not at all precarious.

Increasingly, the Labour Party ditched anything connecting it to “socialism” (in the UK’s more “social-democratic” form): Clause IV of the Labour Party Constitution was removed, opening the way for Tony Blair and his group to make Labour more “electable” in areas normally voting Conservative. Links with trade unions were loosened.

The strategy worked: in 1997, Labour had what many still call a “landslide” victory, though it still garnered only 43.2% of the popular vote (Conservatives 30.7%; LibDems 16.8%).

The absurd First Past The Post system gave Labour its “landslide” in MP numbers, despite the Labour popular vote having risen by only a modest amount. The same effect helped the LibDems, whose MP numbers almost tripled (to 46 from 18), despite the LibDem popular vote having fallen by one point. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997_United_Kingdom_general_election.

In 1997, the old industrial regions and cities still voted Labour. South Wales, the Midlands and Northern conurbations, the industrial parts of the North-East, much of Scotland (especially the industrialized Central Belt), and some parts of the London area.

Compare the graphic above with that showing the result of the 2019 election, below:

Labour, as an entrenched “one-party” political monopoly (in its core areas), has only remained entrenched in parts of London, parts of South Wales, parts of the North, North-East, North-West, and a few parts of the Birmingham/West Midlands area. Scotland is gone, most of Wales is gone, almost all of southern and central England outside London has gone.

Corbyn tried to appeal to the old Labour heartlands, as well as reaching out to the new “identity politics” of, mainly, London— the blacks, the other non-whites, the precariat generally, and the “useful idiots” of white pseudo-intellectual “wokedom”.

Corbyn failed, but not as badly as many have said. What sank Corbyn-Labour was that many voters outside London would not accept his clunky 1970s pseudo-socialism, or his infatuation with the “blacks and browns”.

That perception was intensified by the basically Jewish attacks on Corbyn (since he became leader). In the Press, on TV, on radio. Many Labour MPs were completely in the Jew-Zionist pocket, and made pronouncements against Labour even during the 2017 and 2019 elections.

Keir Starmer, despite his first name and Labour-voting parents, is someone with quite shallow roots in Labour (born in London, brought up in affluent Oxted, Surrey, and attended Reigate Grammar (which became private/independent while he was there); he became a barrister, married a Jewish woman, and their children have been brought up as if full-Jew).

Starmer’s response to Labour’s decreasing relevance has been the opposite of that of Corbyn. Starmer wants to appeal to what is left of the old Labour heartlands, while also making Labour “electable” for the rest of the country. No “socialism” to frighten the horses, just (supposedly) competent managerial semi-social-democracy. Basically, a (less convincing?) Tony Blair/Gordon Brown strategy.

Part of Starmer’s plan is to present Labour as a party which disapproves of industrial action, and which does not want to return to (what is perceived as) the bad old 1970s.

The “workers” of the old type (as in the rail industry) are rather unwanted remote relatives now, unwanted guests at Labour’s party.

Frankly, I doubt that Starmer’s strategy will work much. It may work up to a point, Labour may regain a relatively few seats, enough to prevent whichever then idiot leads the Conservative Party from getting a majority in (as it may be) 2023 or 2024 but, in the end, Labour’s time has come and gone.

Like the Conservative Party (and LibDems), the Labour Party is little more than a name.

For those who have not encountered “eminent domain”, that is a doctrine in U.S. constitutional law that is akin to the British “compulsory purchase”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eminent_domain_in_the_United_States.

Even more striking when you see it laid out like that.


Kiev-regime forces using elderly and disabled people as human shields:

The United Nations said Ukraine’s armed forces bore a large, and perhaps equal, share of the blame for an assault at a nursing home in Luhansk, where dozens of elderly and disabled patients were trapped inside without water or electricity. At least 22 of the 71 patients survived, but the exact number killed remains unknown. A few days before the attack, Ukrainian soldiers took up positions inside the nursing home, making the building a target, the UN said.” [MSN News].

Meanwhile, NWO puppet and Jew dictator, Zelensky, has sacked a number of Ukrainian ambassadors, including the one in Berlin.

David Davis

There are rumours that David Davis may offer his candidature for the position of leader of the Conservative Party, and so Prime Minister.

About 14 years ago, in 2008, I opined, in a restricted-circulation study, that David Davis, who had previously lost out to David Cameron-Levita in the Conservative leadership contest, might well still achieve ministerial, or possibly even prime-ministerial, rank.

I was right as to the first, though it took him another 8 years; as to the second, the office of Prime MInister, that is far less likely, but not impossible now.

Davis may be less obviously or, rather, self-publicizingly, intellectual than one or two of the others in the contest, but is no dummy, all the same.

Davis has points which few if any in that contest at present can match.

First, Davis is of real British origins (not black, brown, or Jew), which at present only 2 out of 9 declared candidates can claim: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_Conservative_Party_leadership_election_(UK)#Candidates.

Second, Davis has proven principles and integrity, unlike all but (arguably) one or two of the presently-declared candidates (Penny Mordaunt being one).

Third, Davis is a staunch supporter of free speech and freedom of expression, unlike most if not all of the presently-declared candidates.

Fourthly, Davis has real grit.


I should say that, comparing Davis to the presently-declared candidates, he is the only one with the mix of attributes that might make him an acceptable Prime Minister (albeit within the System).

I hope that David Davis enters the contest; if he does, he might just win, if only as an acceptable compromise candidate.

Nadhim Zahawi


The Prime Minister a lying, cheating part-Jew/Levantine, the Chancellor a dodgy Kurd from God knows where, the Home Secretary an East African Asian (Indian) who should be behind the counter of a Kampala grocery store. Am I really an “extremist”, or is there just something very very wrong with this country now?

The Hay Wain


I read about the vandalism at the time (about three weeks ago), but not the inevitable hypocrisy of the vandals (inevitable, having seen reports of the activities of similar blots), who it seems are one Hannah Hunt (superannuated student, serial long-distance tourist, parents own at least two large houses, have a high income etc) and her apparent boyfriend, one Eben Lazarus (details unavailable but must be a Jew with a name like that).

Some people might say that that pair need a good kicking, but in fact they have so far not even been charged with criminal damage to The Hay Wain. Britain 2022…



Seems that evil pseudo-Communist hypocrite (and heiress) Susan Michie is again pushing for the facemask nonsense etc to resume.

Only a tiny handful of people are (and ever have been) seriously unwell (of “Covid” alone), but the faked “cases” pile up (in the equally-faked statistics).

I recall when all this nonsense started, over two years ago. Panicked reports from Italy and China and, the very same day that it really hit the news agenda, a film (a drama, fictional) on TV about…a virus starting in China that spreads death across the world. A film put into the TV schedules weeks or months in advance. Makes you think…

As to the maniacs like Michie and Ferguson, wanting a return to the unnecessary and hugely damaging “lockdowns” (shutdowns) and facemask nonsense (and other nonsensical measures), see below:


Total hospital admissions are climbing, with patient levels nearing the peak reached during the previous wave of infections in spring. However, only a fraction are primarily ill with the virus, suggesting the rise is a reflection of high rates of transmission in the community, rather than severe disease.” 

[Daily Mail]

[Daily Mail]

Actually, “Covid” has become the go-to excuse for organizations not functioning properly: banks, local authorities, NHS, all using it as an excuse to cut services and opening hours.

As for people wanting a few days off work, a cold will not cut it, but a supposed positive test for “Covid” will do fine, even though the symptoms are very similar now. Madness, but that is, to a large extent, Britain in 2022— mad.

More around the Boris-idiot Cabinet of clowns

There are those still in, or promoted to, Cabinet, who would surely never have reached Cabinet-ministerial rank under anyone else but Johnson. Take Priti Patel, saved from spending her life behind the counter of an Indian grocery shop in Uganda by her parents having relocated to the UK in the late 1960s.

Would Priti Patel reach Cabinet-level under any other Prime Minister? Well, yes, in the past (before her limitations were so well-known), in that Theresa May first appointed her to Cabinet. However, that was soon seen as a mistake.

Hard to see Priti Patel being even a minister, let alone a Cabinet Minister, after this year. That’s the point, and that is why she will defend Boris-idiot to the end.

Others? Liz Truss, smug and unpleasant Kit Malthouse, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, the Jew Shapps, Therese Coffey, Nadine Dorries (obviously); others yet.

That collection of moneygrubbing deadheads will cling to office whatever it takes. Boots will have to stamp on their fingers to get them to let go.

The Race Is On To Replace Theresa May— What Else May Now Happen?

Those who have read my recent blogs on Brexit and Theresa May will have noted that I predicted (in the posts and/or in the Comments sections to the posts) that, if the Commons vote on the Theresa May Brexit “deal” were to go against the Government, as always seemed probable, one likely consequence would be that there would be a revolt among Conservative Party MPs, with the aim of ejecting her from her leadership position. That has now happened, though the Commons vote on the Brexit “deal” has not been taken, and may never be.

Theresa May as Prime Minister

I do not conceal that I am very opposed to Theresa May.

  • She has had passed repressive legislation, both as Prime Minister and in her former office as Home Secretary;
  • She is very pro-Jewish, very pro-Zionist, very pro-Israel and is a member of Conservative Friends of Israel;
  • There are indications that she herself may be of partly-Jewish origin;
  • She has continued the Con Coalition (and, even before that, Gordon Brown Labour) demonization of the poor, unemployed and disabled, even to the extent of promoting dishonest and thick-as-two-short-planks Esther McVey to Cabinet as Work and Pensions Secretary;
  • She failed, both as Home Secretary and as Prime Minister, to stop or even slow mass immigration;
  • She has shown no strategic grasp.


[Theresa May became Prime Minister after all other candidates “killed” each other]

I will say that, for a few days after having become Prime Minister, Theresa May looked like a slightly better choice than David Cameron-Levita had proven to be. She made statements in the “One Nation Conservative” vein and seemed to be willing to revisit the obviously not-working bits of Con Coalition policy, such as Dunce Duncan Smith’s pathetic and misconceived Universal Credit fiasco. However, it soon turned out that Theresa May had few ideas of her own and yet was completely inflexible.

Theresa May worked for 20 years, before entering Parliament, as a back-room bureaucrat at the BACS cheque-clearing organization. She is out of her depth as Prime Minister (in fact she was no good as Home Secretary either).

Theresa May’s brittle persona, which might be described as “barely-concealed hysterical panic”, disguised under a “Wicked Witch” outer layer, became very apparent during the General Election campaign of 2017. Afraid to show herself in public, even to the limited extent of her predecessors, her “campaign speeches” to carefully-vetted tiny groups in aircraft hangars etc were every bit as fake as those of US Presidents, and were seen as such. Her hysterical “Nothing has changed! Nothing has changed!” screech turned her from a perceivedly “solid” Prime Minister to an embattled and weak one. Immediately. The 2017 election was probably lost right there.


After the 2017 election, Theresa May was a lame duck PM, dependent on the Democratic Unionist Party votes, which were bought at great expense. Without those DUP votes, Theresa May is totally powerless. The EU establishment saw that and has taken full advantage of Theresa May’s political weakness.

How Has Theresa May Survived This Long?

The answer, in my view, is that there has not been seen to be an obvious challenger for her position. She is second-rate. All right, but most of the would-be leaders and prime ministers are third-rate:

  • Clown Prince Boris Johnson: completely unfit for any public office, being acquisitive, greedy, lazy, incompetent, often rather stupid, narrowly-educated, unethical, untrustworthy, callous, as well as cosmopolitan in his origins (part-Jew, part-Turk, a bit of this and a bit of that, born in New York City); Conservative Friends of Israel; a poseur and overall a fake, a £3 note who attempts to present himself as “Prime Minister in Waiting” via an am-dram reprise of Winston Churchill, but with none of the intellectual depth or personal steel; supported Remain but turned coat;
  • Sajid Javid: A Pakistani by origin, cosmopolitan business type by pre-political career; his earnings at time of departure from Deutsche Bank in 2009 are said to have been £3M a year; he owns 4 homes in the UK; someone whose judgment is very questionable, as witness his support for the masked “antifa” thugs (a remarkable stance for someone now posing as Home Secretary!); connected with that is Javid’s doormat-level support for Jews and indeed Zionists —and Israel—; Javid and his English wife took their honeymoon in Israel; member of Conservative Friends of Israel; supporter of American neo-con adventurism and “intervention”; an Ayn Rand devotee…it just gets worse; incompetent in office; supported Remain;
  • Jeremy Hunt: dark horse; smarmy snake type; possible front-runner; multi-millionaire (tens of millions); property speculator; supported Remain, but has turned coat;
  • Michael Gove: has a Jewish or part-Jewish wife, and is a member of Conservative Friends of Israel; one of the most egregious expenses cheats of the pre-2010 Parliament; arguably more intelligent than most of the other likely successors to Mrs May, but often wrongheaded; dishonest; supported Leave;
  • Amber Rudd: member of Conservative Friends of Israel; complete doormat for the Israel/Jewish/Zionist lobby; wants to pass even more repressive laws targeting British patriots etc, making even reading dissident literature online a criminal offence (!); despite her financial services background, pretty thick; incompetent and dishonest in office; personally involved with African and Old Etonian MP, Kwasi Kwarteng; Remain Queen Bee;
  • Philip Hammond: dull but predictable and therefore perceived as “safe”; supported Remain;
  • Dominic Raab: a half-Jew, Raab has worked in diplomatic activity; there have been some controversial news reports about his personal behaviour; supported Leave;
  • Jacob Rees-Mogg: may or may not be a candidate; multi-millionaire and Leave luminary; may not want to give up his big City of London wealth fund operation to become PM, but the lure of the highest office is powerfully magnetic.

The above seem to be the most likely candidates to vie for the succession to Theresa May, if she cannot get 158 MPs to vote for her this evening (50% of the total).

Incredibly, some even less suitable names may want to be on the ballot paper, including

  • sex pest and doormat-for-Israel Stephen Crabb;
  • Esther Mcvey (another, yawn, Conservative Friends of Israel member); an evil associate of Dunce Duncan Smith;
  • dull nobody Andrea Leadsom;
  • even Penny Mordaunt! (but this is a contest for leadership of the Conservative Party, it is not a swimsuit competition…).

It has been the lack of alternative and credible leadership candidates that has kept Theresa May from having to face a leadership challenge; that and the fact that, should she get 158+ MPs to support her, she will be safe from challenge for a year.

At present it seems that about 110 MPs have pledged to support Theresa May, but the ballot is secret, so their support cannot be confirmed or checked. The vote is a Yes/No one.

A month ago, I should have thought (and did think) that Theresa May would win any confidence vote fairly easily, though perhaps not convincingly. Now, I doubt it, though the outcome must still be seen as uncertain. Her authority as PM, let alone as Conservative Party leader, is in shreds. Her power is non-existent, now that the DUP have as good as pulled the rug from under her government. She is disrespected by the EU, the public, her own party. She must surely go. If she does not, the Conservative Party will ebb away to nothing with her.

Life After Theresa May

Life for the UK has become very uncertain. It might even be said that the British are starting to follow Nietzsche’s dictum, and are living dangerously. It seems to be not unlikely that any successor to Theresa May might want to revoke the invocation of Article 50, thereby stopping Brexit in its tracks. After that, a new Referendum could be held. Not that I favour that course of action. I myself should prefer Britain to wake up, kick out the traitors and unwanted cuckoos in our nest, and leave the EU completely, finally. However, I am not Prime Minister.

















Update, 12 December 2018

Well, as I have repeatedly written over months and years in this blog, the “glorious uncertainty” of the racecourse is replicated in British politics. I thought, only this afternoon, that the outcome of the no-confidence vote would be close, somewhere around 50-50. In the event, Theresa May won by 200-117, so 63% of Conservative Party MPs backed her or at least were unwilling to get rid of her (at present), as against 37% who voted to dump her.

I see the vote not as MPs having confidence in Theresa May, but in having no confidence in any of the likely candidates vying to replace her.

What Now?

Theresa May now cannot be challenged in any no-confidence vote of her party for a year, i.e. until December 2019.

Theresa May still has no credibility, politically. She still has no chance of any substantial revision of her EU exit “deal”; the DUP are distancing themselves from her, which may completely paralyze her legislative programme (such as it is); she now knows for sure that 117 of her MPs have no confidence in her. In reality, few have confidence in her but are not willing to eject her right now.

Theresa May should realize that, just as she became Conservative Party leader and so Prime Minister by default and not by reason of her own merit, so she has now survived the no-confidence vote for the same reason.

There is uncertainty now as to whether the Brexit “deal”, with minor EU concessions as a figleaf, will be put to the House of Commons soon (or at all). As for revoking Article 50, that seems to be not unlikely, perhaps if any revised Brexit “deal” is voted down by the Commons, whatever Theresa May now says.

We must never forget that ZOG/NWO wants the UK to either stay in the EU or to leave the EU but on a basis of effectively still being tied to it.

Afterthought, 14 December 2018

It may be thought surprising that I left out the name of David Davis from the list of possible leaders. Back in 2008, I predicted that he might return to government as Cabinet minister and even Prime Minister. I have subsequently been proven correct in the first part; as to the second, that is now unlikely though (things being what they are…) not impossible. Davis is now 69, but the main obstacle to his being elected as Conservative Party leader and notionally then Prime Minister is that he is for Leave, most MPs are for Remain. That, and his more traditional type of Conservatism.

Update, 15 December 2018

“It’s over. If Brexit happens at all – and for the first time I’m beginning to think it won’t – it will be on terms that keep the worst aspects of EU membership. Britain will be humbled in the eyes of the world, having tried to recover its independence and been faced down. The largest popular vote in our history will be disregarded, and the nation that exported representative government exposed as an oligarchy. Plus – and I know this sounds almost trivial next to those calamities, but it matters to me – the Conservative Party might never recover.” [Daniel Hannan MEP, in the Daily Telegraph]

Update, 1 April 2019

Incredibly, Liz Truss, who only became an MP on her back, is now spoken of as a potential Conservative prime minister! This is madness!
