On this day a year ago
From the newspapers
The long-delayed trial of social-national podcaster “Sven Longshanks”.
East European gypsies (again), not “Bulgarians” (except in terms of their passports). Why should (real) Bulgarians be tarred with that brush?
The basically post-1945 world order, or international order (UN, World Bank, IMF, NATO, international banking system, decolonization etc), now faces collapse. It may be that a terrible war between NATO (really, the NWO) and Russia will destroy it completely (whatever the notional direct result of that war).
I keep seeing tweets (etc) about how the Russian Army is so inefficient that the NATO armies could easily rout it. Maybe, maybe not. Russia has not committed more than a fraction (exactly how much is uncertain) to Ukraine and, within Ukraine, to Bakhmut/Artyomovsk. Also, the NATO armies have also been shown to have their flaws, looking at, eg, Afghanistan.
I wonder what would really happen if the NATO armies were ever to try to emulate Napoleon and Hitler in invading Russia (something which, in any case, is rendered effectively impossible by reason of Russia’s nuclear deterrent).
Armies such as the Italian, Spanish, Dutch etc, probably the Germans too, are of little real use, having had little recent combat experience.
Even the US and UK armies are now, man for man (and 10%+ of those armies’ troops are now female), probably not very effective. The USA relies on massive force, itself based on advanced technology, air power, and huge numbers, as much as anything.
As said, the Russian nuclear deterrent makes any direct conventional war between Russia and NATO unlikely except as a brief prelude before a nuclear exchange (tactical, but then strategic, if not immediately strategic). Even without that, Russia cannot be conquered. It is too big, and has too large and nationalistic a population. The Chinese might, in theory, try it one day, but I suspect that their ambition would only encompass the former Soviet Far East, perhaps Eastern Siberia, perhaps (less likely) Western Siberia too. Not European Russia.
The above facts indicate to me that the Russians will now be placing most of their defensive eggs in one basket— the nuclear basket.
Other possibilities, less direct, would include bio-weapons and something even more oblique, namely political weaponization.
If Trump, or another “America-Firster”, becomes President after next year’s 2024 election, then Zelensky’s ricebowl may be taken away. Without the huge flow of money, arms, ammunition, and other aid, the Kiev regime would be unable to keep fighting.
Already, there is probably a popular majority in both US and UK against the stoking of the Ukraine war, but that is not reflected either in the System political milieux of either country (or in France or Germany), not reflected in the System msm, nor even on Twitter, the home of the “me too” non-thinkers, and heavily influenced by the Jewish lobby, which of course even more heavily influences and/or controls the msm.
“It is not the Germany of the decade that followed the war— broken, dejected and bowed down with a sense of apprehension and impotence. It is now full of hope and confidence. One man has accomplished this miracle. The old trust him, the young idolize him. It is not the admiration accorded to a popular leader. It is the worship of a national hero who has saved his country from utter despondence and degradation. I have never met a happier people.”
[former British Prime Minister, David Lloyd George, talking about his visit to National Socialist Germany in the 1930s, and referring to Hitler].
Ha ha! The con-woman, “Jack Monroe”, now spinning a line obviously designed by her to reel in more naive and trusting mugs. Muddying the water, too.
She has been doing that, in various ways, for over a decade, has made a very good living from it, and large numbers of utter mugs (482 as of today) are still sending her money every month; thousands of pounds monthly in total.
Exactly. I think that, probably, tweeter “@Kelly_Jackson88” has never met a really and constantly untruthful and bad person. They are fairly rare, but they do exist. Some of that sort just do not stop; they just keep on coming until they are stopped. I mean stopped.
…and there are still idiots aplenty on Twitter who still believe the whole “Jack Monroe” farrago, though “celebrities” such as Jay Rayner and Nigella Lawson, the msm generally, and some charities, i.e. all those who made “Jack Monroe” into a near-“celebrity” in the first place, years ago, have pretty much shown her the cold shoulder now that she has become “mad, bad, and dangerous to know“.
Incidentally, I see a number of Twitter accounts defending her today, but they are mostly accounts using pseudonyms, with 1 or 2 or a few “followers”. In other words, probably “Jack Monroe” herself.
Tweeter “@lookinupatstars” is evidently another one who has views entirely uninformed by facts. Whatever one may think of Jamie Oliver (and I am no fan, that’s for sure), he is at least a genuine chef [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Oliver], whereas the creations of “Jack Monroe”, photographed by her and others, and shown online, look, quite often, like a dog’s dinner; in fact, some of them make me feel sick just looking at them.
“Jack Monroe” has become increasingly bizarre over the past decade, and her claims have become —increasingly?— so impossible to believe that it has occurred to me several times that she tries to “push the envelope” further and wilder just to see whether her (often mentally-unwell) fans will actually swallow her lies and fantasies. Many still do, sadly. Mad.
Despite the scandal(s), “Jack Monroe” still pops up at pseudo-socialist or “social activism” jamborees, occasionally:
Of the dozens of persons featured (about 60), I have only heard of a few: the “Bootstrap Cook” herself, John Sentamu (the black one-time Archbishop of York), Jolyon Maugham (the “controversial” barrister, political activist, and fox-killer) and Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, the anti-white pseudo-journalist. Oh, and I have heard the name Brian Eno, but will have to look up who or what he is or was [ah…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Eno]. (I thought that he was some kind of musician; well, now I know).
“Jack Monroe” stands out by virtue of her sheer “dodginess”, even standing alongside the likes of Yasmin Alibhai-Brown and Jolyon Maugham. They at least do more or less “what it says on the tin“.
Late tweets seen
I can only hope that, if that demented old guy ever tries to launch a nuclear strike, some hero will sacrifice himself by pumping a couple of rounds into wherever will do the most damage, and thus save the world, including the USA.
In the end, there will only be one way to deal with this whole situation, but I have no need to spell it out. Everyone that matters already knows it, in their hearts.
