You can see how, over the past week, the EU (NWO/ZOG component) has been wheeling out sleaze stories about Marine le Pen, in order to bamboozle the French masses.

See also https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/09/on-recent-events-in-france/ about Macron’s oddly-suspicious background.

Opinion polls now have Macron several points ahead of le Pen for the second round of the French Presidential election, but about 10% are still undecided, so there is, as yet, all to play for.

How long before we see that in the UK? The “Covid” toytown police-state of 2020-2021 was a warning of things to come, possibly.

The aim of the System is to introduce a regime of microchip “Covid passports”, leading to a microchipped population. Add to that electric cars all fitted with GPS satnav, and almost everyone with a trackable mobile telephone, and you have much of the population, and 99% of the “important” people (those with any real influence or power, or heavy money) tracked, if need be, 24/7. The Stasi of the old DDR (East Germany) would have killed for that level of surveillance.

Indeed, it may be that, years down the line, all cars will be able to have their controls overridden by a centralized system, so that a car might actually be able to be directed to deliver an unwilling person directly to the “authorities”.

Rwanda plan or scam

London redevelopment

To my way of thinking, London, like most European cities, is better thought of as horizontal rather than vertical. That, however, has not been the trend of recent decades.

I can remember a time, in the late 1970s, when the whole Docklands area was still a post-industrial semi-wasteland. The foot-tunnel from Greenwich, under the river, came out into the Isle of Dogs as it used to be, an undeveloped (since the 19th/early 20thC) scene which, after dark especially, was both sinister and interesting. Pubs, some ugly and tacked onto 20thC council housing, a few other pubs quirky and picturesque, those latter very old and far predating the Victorian docks and dock buildings.

In 1979, there was no Canary Wharf, no expanses of new expensive housing, no Docklands Light Railway and, further afield to the east, no London City Airport.

All very different now. Arguably, the part of England that has changed most in the past 40 or so years, in terms of development. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Dogs. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Plaza_(London)

Censorship: It will be seen that a number of tweets cited by me in that blog post a year ago are now expunged by the Twitter organization. Freedom of expression is all but dead in the UK now. The Jew-Zionist element is behind much of that.

As I have been blogging recently, the Russians are still, though very gradually, “winning” in Ukraine, appalling though the human cost is on both sides.

If you were only to see the usual BBC/Sky (etc) propaganda “news”, you might imagine that the Russian forces are “losing” this small-ish and very unpleasant war. However, the reality is that, albeit at huge cost in every way, Russian forces still just about hold the initiative.

In brief, the Russians have a large air force, only part of which is presently engaged in Ukraine; the Kiev regime now has no air force left. The Russians have a large navy, part of which (including what is or used to be called the Black Sea Fleet) is now blockading the Black Sea coast and the coast of the Sea of Azov, and is executing a blockade of the third-largest city in Ukraine, Odessa; the Kiev regime has no fleet. The Russian Army is huge, is only partly in the Ukraine-area theatre, and has thousands of tanks and other armoured vehicles; the Ukrainian Army consists of mostly outdated armour, and a mass of infantry.

The Ukrainian forces can use the donated Western weaponry (anti-tank weapons, ground-to-air infantry missiles) to inflict damage on Russian tanks and planes, but Russian forces also have such weapons, and have reportedly destroyed most of the Turkish-made drones operated by the Ukrainian forces.

We see no large-scale counter-offensives by the Ukrainian forces. Probably they are short of fuel and ammunition. There was no attack at all, it seems, on the 40-mile-long convoy north of Kiev. Had the Kiev regime a functioning air force, there would have been an attack.

As previously blogged, the Ukrainian strategy seems to be to turn major and some other cities into fortresses, stop the Russians from storming them, and at the same time equip as many soldiers as possible with the donated Western hardware.

I have seen no information as to where the bulk of Ukrainian forces are located. I presume, in Kiev, in the south-eastern region, and also in the so-far not invaded west of the country.

As I have written previously, the Russians are waging war in an almost mediaeval way on the Ukrainian-held cities: encirclement, bombardment, starvation. Eventually, unless those cities are relieved from without, which seems very unlikely, they will fall. God only knows what will by then be the condition of the civilians forced to endure the sieges.

Once Russian forces have encircled the main cities, and thus trapped not only the civilians but also Ukrainian military forces, they can roam relatively freely throughout at least the east and south of Ukraine.

Kiev must remain, psychologically, the main target for the Russians. If they have sufficient force to contain the other major cities of the east and south, surplus forces can be committed to Kiev, with the idea of either tightening the siege, or (later) storming the capital.

We should not forget the size of the country. Krivoy Rog or Kryvyi Rih is well over 200 miles south/southeast from Kiev, and Krivoy Rog is nowhere near taken, or even approached as yet. Kharkov is a similar distance from Kiev, to the east.

Usually, commanders would be concerned about lateral attacks on such long lines of approach, but I doubt whether the Ukrainian Army has the overall wherewithal for such attacks, except on the small and local scale.

Putin is not going to back down. While I doubt that he will use chemical or biological weapons (as claimed by the msm), he may eventually use even more destructive conventional methods and weapons than seen in use so far.

The West is “helping” the Kiev regime by supplying advanced weaponry, but not the weaponry that might actually make a difference to the end result— planes, tanks, heavy artillery etc. The present ordnance being supplied only prolongs the agony of the civilian population, by prolonging the war.

It seems very much at present as though the Russian (expected, by me at least) “victory” over the Kiev regime will echo that of Rome over Carthage. I think that it was Tacitus who remarked, about the fall of, and levelling of, Carthage, that “they created a desert, and called it peace“…

What a horrible mess.

The basic biosecurity police state legal structure is in place now, and can be triggered any time in the future that the ZOG tyrants decide.

The payments concerned were in the USA, but we see all over the Western world this basic dishonesty around “Covid” and the “panicdemic” narrative, and as seen also in the “climate change” narrative, the “refugee” and mass immigration narratives etc. Same overall stable.

It goes beyond that. Soon, 99.9% of UK citizens will be able to be tracked everywhere they go, 24/7. Anyone even marginally politically-active will be continually monitored. The old East German Stasi would have loved this technology.

Obviously, as in Nineteen Eighty-Four, the pleb element of society will be only occasionally of interest. The politically or economically powerful will be, together with the few people in the political vanguard, whatever their ideology.

I think that this may exist already in the UK, though not officially.

New Zealanders have never been known for intellectuality —with notable exceptions— but why they elected that clown-woman as Prime Minister surpasses all understanding.

As in past situations (Iraq, Libya), the UK public is getting only a one-sided picture from its corrupt and wrongheaded msm. The same is probably true of USA etc.

EU nonsense

It seems that, with support from several EU member-states, Ukraine is now looked upon favourably in its desire to join the EU. What incredible nonsense.

In the past, EU membership was, officially at least, only granted to states exhibiting behaviour and status compatible with EU membership. According to the “Copenhagen Criteria” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copenhagen_criteria], a state wishing to join the EU must have “the institutions to preserve democratic governance and human rights,…a functioning market economy, and accept the obligations and intent of the EU [including, in principle, the Euro]” [Wikipedia].

The EU rules, particularly re. economy, tax etc, were bent and effectively broken in order to allow some present members to join, most obviously Greece.

Now look at Ukraine. First of all, Ukraine may not even exist as a state in its present form for much longer. Its borders are now uncertain. A quarter of its territory is under Russian occupation or threat of occupation, and that might soon be a third, a half, or even the whole of the country.

Secondly, from the economic point of view, Ukraine scarcely has a functioning economy at all any more, certainly in about a third of the country. As for the currency, while the hryvnia is currently valued at about 3 cents (European), and while that is historically quite high, its future must be regarded as uncertain.

Rule of law? Civil rights? The Zelensky regime has just “suspended” no fewer than 11 political parties, and a member of the Kiev government’s own peace-negotiation team has recently been shot in the head by Ukrainian security for having allegedly been an agent of Russia.

Ukraine has had corrupt and shambolic governments for 31 years now. The Kiev regime can only fight Russian forces at all by reason of the arms and ammunition being funnelled into Ukraine by the US, UK, and other, mostly NATO, states.

If Russia decides to play real hardball, and cuts off gas to the EU, the EU states may all face political upheaval. The EU may even collapse. Welcoming a fake state or failed state like Ukraine into candidate or actual membership may just be enough to do it.

“Diversity” nonsense

Happened to see a few minutes of ITV News. A piece about a drama called “Bridgerton“; have never watched any. American, but set in Regency London.

Hard to believe, but a number of characters, including Queen Charlotte (!) were played by blacks and browns. In Regency London… (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridgerton#Historical_accuracy). Incidentally, see also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlotte_of_Mecklenburg-Strelitz; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlotte_of_Mecklenburg-Strelitz#Ancestry.

ITV News, of course, “celebrated” the “diversity” (i.e. white people, who actually existed historically —unlike say Othello— being played by black/brown theatricals).

The propaganda aspect is not really aimed at adults (despite their probably comprising the bulk of the audience), but at those too young to know that shows of this sort are totally ahistorical or, to put it more bluntly, lying rubbish.

A more-accurate (though with some artistic licence) version of Regency London:

There is a definite current of such Coudenhove-Kalergi propaganda being spread now in the msm.

That was especially apparent in 2020. I myself had one —brief— argument with a bloody ch…I mean Chinese…student of some kind, and stormed out of at least one shop where the assistant, for once in her miserable life, had the power to order the customer around (she thought).

Those tweets are still behind the curve. There will probably be no need for outright compulsion. It will just be made increasingly hard to live on anything beyond a down-and-out level without the “digital passport”, which will before too long be in the form of an implanted microchip.

Think how most people in the UK and other advanced countries now live. It is not compulsory to have personal Internet access, or debit/credit cards, or a mobile telephone. It is just that life is increasingly difficult without them.

I recall, years ago, circa 2007, asking whether I might pay for a business hotel (already booked by card) because I had a superfluity of cash at the time, and being told I could use cash, but only if I both showed ID and paid a deposit (I think £100 or £50) in cash upfront. Now? Maybe cash is not even accepted; I rarely, practically never, stay in hotels these days (15 years ago, I probably spent about half of the month in hotels).

That is how the microchipped population will be created, not by force but by guile, and because convenience will trump freedom.

Yes, mere weeks ago even the egregious “Covid criminal”, Professor Ferguson, was still being respectfully listened to by BBC drones as he predicted hundreds of thousands of dying (from Omicron, Delta etc) patients would swamp the NHS. In fact, the hospitals are half-empty in many areas.

Strange to think that that boy, aged 13 in the photo, would eventually have been Tsar of all the Russias, had both he and Tsarism itself survived the brutal onslaught of Bolshevism. He was murdered just before his 14th birthday.

The grande luxe cars of that era certainly had style.

Only 121 years ago; to me, it might be in the era of Drake and Raleigh, except perhaps for the smokestack on a ship in the distance..

My own view of cannabis (and other illegal drugs) and the law is that, while the clarity of complete decriminalization appeals, I despise drug abusers, and would prefer either drug abuse to cease to exist, or drug abusers to cease to exist (or be eliminated).

On the other hand, the present system is not working.

I am also cognizant of the fact that societies where cannabis use is prevalent tend to fall to pieces, as Hafiz, the Persian poet, saw happening in his own country many centuries ago, and as one can see in the areas of the world where cannabis use is prevalent; Jamaica, for one.

All the —mainly British— people I knew when younger (1970s, 1980s), those who regularly smoked marijuana, dropped out of society to a greater or lesser extent.

The old Stasi, in the DDR, would have loved “Covid passports”, “track and trace” etc.

That anti-white narrative or stream of constant msm propaganda particularly affects the blacks, who as a group tend to lack logical-critical thinking skills.

Radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer (who blocked me years ago on Twitter when I exposed her ignorance on a point or two of law and procedure) seems to be turning a blind eye to the abuses carried out by the Jew-Zionist lobby. She has never said a word in support of the free speech of those attacked, and even prosecuted, at the instigation of packs of Zionist Jews such as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”. I wonder why?

Yes, Laurence Fox and his “Reclaim Party” can be put in the same bin as all the rest of the controlled opposition: Reform UK, Brexit Party, UKIP, “anti-immigration” “Conservatives”, Katie Hopkins, “Tommy Robinson”, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad”, Delingpole, Toby Young and his fake “Free Speech Union” etc etc.

Is that so? If the new Alba Party challenges the SNP in most Scottish consituencies, and effectively enough so that other parties come through the middle (Conservative, LibDem, Labour), then yes. It may well be, though (and I never claim great knowledge of Scottish politics) that many voters “up there” will choose between Alba Party and SNP, and simply dump the others.

Voters who are pro-Independence but anti-SNP. I do not know whether that is so, and whether there are even any pro-Independence but anti-SNP voters.

At the moment, it seems doubtful that Alba Party will make a big impression: https://news.sky.com/story/scottish-elections-sturgeons-snp-set-for-majority-but-salmonds-alba-unlikely-to-get-single-seat-sky-news-poll-12268966.

I am guessing, but it may be that Salmond’s quite recent sex crime trial has mortally wounded him politically, even if he was formally acquitted.

Either way, it does seem that “Independence”, however nebulous a concept that is in the Scottish context where a new Scotland might still be tied into EU, IMF, World Bank, NATO etc, is gaining ground with Scottish voters. That might have big geopolitical implications.

Well, I see that John Rentoul has again been defeated by me, this week scoring only 3/10. My own score was 6/10 (I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 9 and 10).

Of course, to say that “Scotland voted SNP” in 2015, 2017, and 2019 is true only in terms of First Past The Post voting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party#House_of_Commons_2.

In 2015, the SNP captured 56 out of the 59 Scottish seats in the Commons; in 2017, 35 out of 59, and in 2019, 48 out of 59. “Scotland” therefored, supposedly “voted SNP”.

In reality though, meaning in terms of the popular vote, the SNP only scored 50%, 36.9% and 45% in those years.

Usually, when there is a successful popular movement for a country to leave a larger country or empire, there is a large popular majority for that: 90% in favour, perhaps; certainly 80%. In Scotland, any majority at all is likely to be small, maybe 55% for and 45% against.

Constitutional Coup?

The new emergency legislation being put forward has a life of, at present, 2 years, until 2022, despite the assertion by Boris-idiot that the Coronavirus crisis might last only for 3 months more, i.e. until June 2020. Already, local elections have been deferred for a year. It may be that NWO/ZOG dictatorship is planned, not only in the UK, but across Europe. I would not rule out civil or social war by 2022.

#StopHoarding

Twitter is doing what it does best, namely allowing people to tweet well-meaning and totally ineffective pleas. In this case, under hashtag #StopHoarding, to those who imagine that they need 500 loo rolls and a mountain of pasta and bottled water.

As I have blogged on previous days, there is (possibly reasonable) bulk-buying and there is (wholly unreasonable) panic-buying. Yesterday, at 1900 hrs, I visited the little village shop about 2 miles from me, and which I have noted in previous posts. It shuts at 1930. I bought almost the last loaf of bread, a bunch of bananas, some locally-produced asparagus and a few lottery tickets.

I wanted to see whether Waitrose in the nearest town was offering much, and mistakenly thought that it closed at 2100 on Thursday. Turned out that it closes at 2000 on Thursdays, so I arrived with only 10 minutes to get anything I wanted. That being so, I was unable to see whether shoppers had stripped the shelves bare again. I did notice that there was not a single egg left, not even the more expensive ones from rare breed chickens, with sky-blue shells. I myself bought only (again) almost the last loaf of bread and a reduced-price (99p reduced from £2-75) North African vegetable and cous-cous salad thing (which turned out to be quite tasty).

I think that this panic-buying can be halted by supermarkets only allowing one item or pack of anything per shopper. Inconvenient, yes, and some would then go to half a dozen places to evade the rule, but most would not and it would restore equilibrium.

Socialism, National Socialism, “National Communism” and Social Nationalism

“Socialism” has almost as many meanings as “democracy”. We still see people with pedestrian understanding writing or tweeting about how “socialism” is and can only be something akin to the Marxist-Leninist setup of the period before the great change(s) since 1989. Those people say that German “National Socialism” was not “real” socialism. Yet German National Socialism gave the German people a great deal more in every way, both economic and cultural, than did either Weimar Republic social democracy or post-1945 Soviet-style DDR (East German) socialism.

C6zkTIvU8AEqebq

Of course, socialism in the Soviet Union had various faces at various times, from Civil War times (1918-21) when militarization of the workforce was the norm (“War Communism”) to the New Economic Policy of the 1920s under which a controlled form of capitalism and private enterprise was permitted, to the harsh centralized system of Stalin in the 1930s and 1940s, a less severe version in the 1950s to 1980s, and then the fall of the various forms of socialism, all over the world, from 1989.

Hitler took a broad view of the term “socialism”, regarding it as meaning, broadly, “the common weal”. He was not hidebound by artificial or arbitrary “definitions” of what socialism means. For him, what mattered were results. So long as the German people were well-fed, housed, educated, organized etc, he was content.

For me, policy matters, as do results. Artificial theory matters less. I was, at one time, in the mid-1970s, accused of not being so much a National Socialist as a “National Communist”, in other words accused of over-valuing the role of the State. I demur. However, the State does have its rightful place (as seen in the Threefold Social Order concept: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_threefolding).

We in the UK have seen in the past decade what happens when the role of the State is cast aside or into the background. Now, with the Coronavirus crisis, we see that the State, in its weakened condition, is unable to properly fulfil its role of guardian of the people (“…for the welfare of the people is the highest law“— Cicero).

What is now required is what might be called “social nationalism”, not old-style State socialism but a system whereby the State, in its proper place, protects and serves the people and, as part of that, regulates but does not actually run economic enterprises and markets. “Nationalism”? All that that means is that the political organization is rooted in our basically “Aryan” European culture, history and way of life.

Government “recalls” retired NHS staff

So little Matt Hancock, clearly out of his depth, has been told to “recall” retired doctors and nurses. My thoughts:

  • the Government has no power to order such recall, only to request it;
  • retired NHS staff are almost all over 60, many over 70, and so are far more likely to fall victim to Coronavirus and to be seriously affected if they do contract it;
  • the above is obviously far more likely to happen in the often not very hygienic conditions of a UK NHS hospital.
