I met John Tyndall several times in 1975, but cannot say that I knew him beyond those brief and brisk meetings. My impressions: Tyndall was a basically honest man, in my view, not a double-dealer (unlike several at the top of the National Front). He had strong views, sometimes right, sometimes not so right.

A quite-good political speaker, in the mould of Oswald Mosley (though nowhere near that level), Tyndall modelled himself quite consciously, I think, on Mosley, even in terms of his manner of speaking (watch the clip in the tweet).

Tyndall’s manner in conversation (at least with me) was brisk, short, rather like a mid-level Army officer of the old school. I detected a slightly narrow intolerance. On the other hand, Tyndall had fairly good organizational talents. He built the NF up to the point where the System, the Jews, Israel (and their “antifascist” useful idiots) had to mount a huge covert operation to bring the NF down in the 1970s.

I feel that, with Tyndall, overall, you got what you saw in front of you.

Quite. Boris-idiot was useless at all previous jobs, and the top job, Prime Minister. Too useless. So useless that not only the System msm but even the manipulated people of the country were starting to notice.

Ukraine

The msm is at pains to say how much damage the Kiev-regime forces have inflicted on Russian forces in recent days and weeks. All the same, Russia has achieved its tactical objectives, and is moving toward achieving its current strategic objective, full control of the whole Donbass region.

Mostly pretty poor. Interesting that the top three in the running are actually English/British; also interesting that, of the remaining twelve, no less than seven are at least partly non-European.

Still, what a poor bunch, overall.

It seems that the UK version of “democracy” leads to “the survival of the unfittest”…

After all, in what country and/or what world does a stupidly-ignorant woman such as Nadine Dorries achieve Cabinet rank?!

Ukraine

Was interested to hear a TV reporter in Ukraine, either Sky News or BBC, give the Ukrainian view of their Lukansk defeat, then add something like “if that can be believed“.

At first, months ago, anything the Ukrainians (Zelensky regime) put out as “fact” was naively believed, even patent nonsense such as the non-existent “Ghost of Kiev” fighter ace. Those lies were retailed to the public, and affected the Western public perception of what was happening, and the reaction of Western political leaders.

Now, reality begins to set in. The forces of the Kiev regime in Eastern Ukraine are running out of soldiers, ammunition (especially for artillery), artillery itself, and fuel. The Russian forces are now gradually carrying out a large-scale strategic or positional operation which will end with the occupation of all of Ukraine east of the river Dnieper.

Funny to see demands that Boris-idiot should explain why he wanted appointed the apparently-appropriately-named Chris Pincher to the position of Chief Whip from having been Deputy Chief Whip (inter alia, the guardian of Con MPs’ morals and ethics). It is obvious, surely? “Boris” wanted someone morally-compromized, who would therefore be lax in passing judgment on Johnson’s own perennial activities.

“Department store” is a better description (Warenhaus is the German for department store as well as, I think, warehouse).

Occasionally, decades ago, I would have a coffee on the open roof terrace that has a very good view over Paris. The store is close to the Seine. By the entrance, there was usually an old organ-grinder with a monkey.

Ukraine

[Ukraine: apparent state of play as of 30 June 2022]

Even the Western msm are reporting that Russian forces are fast closing-in on Lisichansk, having taken nearby Severodonetsk. Sky News admitted that many civilians in Lisichansk are actually pro-Russian and await the arrival of Russian forces with anticipated relief.

It is only a matter of time before not only the Donbass region but all of Ukrainian territory within the polygon Kharkov-Mariupol-Zaporozhye-Kremenchuk-Kharkov falls to Russian control. Once that happens, the Ukrainians will be unable to prevent a massive Russian advance on a broad front generally northwestward, between the Dnieper and the Russian border.

The Ukrainians have insufficient fuel east of the Dnieper to last long in terms of infantry and armour mobility, and are running out of artillery capability. If Russian forces can occupy everywhere east of the Dnieper, and south of a line Kremenchuk-Kharkov, their approach towards Kiev might be both swift and unstoppable.

Exactly. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan.

I saw, just yesterday, a TV ad for a new film, a remake of The Railway Children. Guess what? One of the children is now a black…

Every TV ad, pretty much, now has blacks, indeed often many more blacks than whites; same goes for every TV drama, even those set in the 18thC, even those set in Tudor times! See my blog from years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/.

This is no accident. It is part of a giant push by transnational conspirators to “reset the global agenda”; aka The Great Reset, combined with The Great Replacement (of European populations by non-Europeans). No prizes for guessing (((which group))) is behind much of it.

The TV ads etc do not “simply reflect society”, as some weasels claim. The UK is, at least officially, still (still?) 85% white, and actual blacks are only about 3% of the population. In England, the figures would be maybe 80% white, and 4% black. Somewhere around there.

In other words, those ads and TV dramas are social engineering, largely by (((“them”))), the aim being to normalize non-whites everywhere, to normalize that in the minds of, mainly, the impressionable young.

Well before 2066, in my view. Unless it is stopped.

This is just mad

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10930527/Prepare-fight-beat-Russia-World-War-Britains-general-warns.html.

Britain’s top army general has told his troops to prepare to fight and beat Putin’s armies in a European land war, it has emerged tonight.

General Sir Patrick Sanders, who assumed overall command of the British Army this week, warned soldiers ‘we are the generation that must prepare the Army to fight in Europe once again’ as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine rocks global stability.

[Daily Mail]

One is tempted to wonder whether the General had had a little too much Blackstrap (cognac/port mixture, not the rum of the same name) in the officers’ mess.

Look at the readers’ comments appended to that Daily Mail article. Most are scathing about both the perceived “need” to fight Russia and the actual ability of the UK to do so, bearing in mind that Britain was scarcely able to bomb Libya a decade ago, needing French and Italian assistance.

The British Army is somewhere around 70,000 “soldiers” (at present being reduced from 80,000+ to 72,000, officially, but in reality well under strength). A tenth are women. About three-quarters are rear-echelon forces. That leaves (roughly; I am sure that military buffs will correct me) 15,000-20,000 actual or potential fighting soldiers.

The Russian Army exceeds a million active troops. Yes, some are of poor quality; so are many of those in the British Army! Never more so than today. In the British Army, drunkenness and drug abuse are common (admittedly, the former has been known in the recent and historical past!), and the Army has had to lower its physical-condition entry standards for enlistment.

In reality, any “war with Russia” involving the UK would have the British in a role serving as very junior partners to the massive US forces.

To be frank, the British Army is in no state to take on any opponent at present, unless a very backward black/brown enemy (and that would not happen now anyway for several reasons, including the “lift” capacity of the RAF being very limited).

Quality usually trumps quantity, but I see few indications now that Russian troops are hugely below the British level. The newspapers have just reported that the very same general has barred some of the supposedly best troops (reportedly from 3 Para) from being sent on exercise or deployment, after disgraceful goings-on in their Essex barracks: see https://www.itv.com/news/anglia/2022-06-09/armed-forces-minister-sorry-and-embarrassed-over-alleged-sex-video; https://www.itv.com/news/anglia/2022-06-18/para-regiment-dropped-from-overseas-operations-after-alleged-sex-video.

Armies reflect the societies from which they recruit. Britain is subsumed in decadence at present.

As a matter of fact, that general, busy moving his painted regiments on a painted map of Eastern Europe, seems to be preparing to fight the last war (meaning the 1939-45 war against the German Reich). He talks as if Hiroshima and Nagasaki never happened.

Russian military doctrine approves first-use of at least tactical nuclear weapons in any situation where Russia’s borders face existential peril.

The General’s ten or twenty thousand men (women are not on the front-line) will not last long in any war with Russia. Equally important, the families and homes of those soldiers will have been incinerated long before the soldiers themselves ever see a Russian soldier.

Taking a look back, at the bigger picture, this is all part of a cynical NWO/ZOG ploy, like the wars against Iraq. There is no need at all for the UK (or any Western or Central European state) to fight Russia.

The Soviet Union was an expansionist state, and motivated, however sluggishly since 1945, by an aggressive political doctrine, Marxism-Leninism.

That does not exist today. Russia is a mildly-nationalist traditional state, more or less. It may vaguely want to restore its core Soviet and Imperial-Russian borders (Ukraine, the “Pribaltika“, the Caucasus region, even Kazakhstan etc), but certainly has no interest in invading Europe west of Ukraine or Belarus.

There are now secret circles and cabals in the UK, USA etc which are pushing for war with Russia, using Ukraine (a “state” that has only existed for 30 years as a state, and with which the UK has almost no historical connection or common interests) as a pretext. Mad and bad.

Incidentally, I see that General Sanders is an alumnus of Worth Abbey school in West Sussex. In or about 1982, when the General would still have been at school there, I went with my then girlfriend and her two young children to some Roman Catholic gathering there. We camped in the grounds, just near the Abbey. I myself am not Roman Catholic, but went along for the ride, really. I was there for a dull day or two, and had a swim in the small and dark indoor pool, housed in a separate building.

Interesting. I once knew someone, a former officer, who lived in the Savernake Forest, not very far from Porton Down. He was convinced that the people of Salisbury had been used, en masse, for mood-altering experiments.

Whatever the truth of that, it is at least interesting that the Skrypal case occurred in Salisbury. Was punishment of the double-agent only one motive? Was there another, such as trying to tar Porton Down with suspicion generally?

I myself once visited Porton Down, in the 1990s, with the then Ukrainian Ambassador, a Mr. Komissarenko. I blogged about that trip once or twice: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/03/06/diary-blog-6-march-2022/.

All bridges to the embattled Ukrainian city of Severodonetsk have now been destroyed, the local governor says.

With the city effectively cut off, Serhiy Haidai says delivering supplies and evacuating civilians are now impossible.

Reports suggest that about 70% of the city is now under Russian control.

[BBC News].

The Russians will eventually control at least a third, maybe a half, of that part of Ukraine that lies east of the Dnieper river. If so, it will have been a victory bought at a tremendous cost in human and animal suffering and death. Few if any (on any side of the conflict) will be untroubled by what has happened. It could have been accomplished quicker, and in a far less brutal way. Too late now. The Russians have no choice but to continue to the bitter end.

On the above premises, it may be possible for Russian forces to take (or besiege, until surrender) Kharkov, Zaporozhye, and Dnipro. That would leave the Kiev regime ruling over only Kiev itself, Odessa, and Lvov, together with mainly rural western Ukraine.

Of course, it is all too easy to eulogize the past, but a basically white Northern European society can progress; in our age, the black/brown societies cannot, which is why the forces of Evil support and promote “multiculturalism”, because it results in a never-ending cycle, the Eternal Recurrence, as Nietzsche put it.

In the 1970s, whatever problems Britain had could be solved, in principle. Now, with a far larger population generally (70 million instead of about 56 million) and huge non-white populations as part of that, I am not optimistic that problems can be solved. The direction of travel is downward.

Ukraine

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/10/ukraine-casualty-rate-russia-war-tipping-point

The Russian forces in Ukraine east of the Dnieper river are doing what I expected, though far more slowly than I expected. They are squeezing and trying to encircle the large Ukrainian forces in and around the Donbass (southeastern Ukraine). This is the main industrial area of the country and is already, effectively and mostly, in Russian hands, with pockets of resistance in places.

I had expected Russian forces to advance north and south from the areas of Kharkov and the Sea of Azov coast respectively, then forming a line through Zaporozhye and Dnipro, and up to/down from Kharkov, thus cutting off all Ukrainian forces east of that line.

The Russians have not done what I expected, perhaps because of supply problems, perhaps also because of the apparently successful Ukrainian counter-attacks in the Kharkov area. The Russians may have redeployed forces formerly in the Kharkov area further south, around Izyum and Lisichansk.

The present focus seems to be on the town of Severodonetsk.

Instead, there seems to be an attempt at a more limited encirclement, involving about a third of the area mentioned above.

The Guardian is reporting that Ukrainian casualties, both killed and wounded, may top 1,000 per day. Even the lower estimate of 600 per day would not be sustainable for long. The Russian attrition rate is believed to be far less now, partly because the Russian forces have a longer-range capacity:

“...with an artillery overmatch of 10 or 15 to one, according to the Ukrainians, it may well be that the invaders’ casualty rate is far lower at the moment, because they are able to deal death from a greater distance to defenders who cannot see them.” [Guardian]

Ammunition is certainly running short on the Ukrainian side, again by their own admission. Vadym Skibitsky, the deputy head of Ukraine’s military intelligence, has said Ukraine is using 5,000 to 6,000 artillery rounds a day, and has “almost used up” its stockpile of Soviet 152mm standard shells. It is now relying on Nato-standard 155mm howitzers; it is unclear how many of these it has.” [Guardian]

Western support is still in place, as shown by the UK announcement to supply a handful of – perhaps three – multiple rocket launchers this week, even if Kyiv said almost immediately it wanted many times more. But it is Russia’s forces that have found a way to advance in the Donbas, raising the question of whether the three-month war is at another turning point.” [Guardian]

If Russian forces can succeed even in this more limited encirclement, they will capture huge numbers of prisoners (usable as bargaining chips), and territory, but also will more easily be able to overrun much of the territory of Ukraine east of the Dnieper and south of Kiev and Kharkov.

If the Russian forces succeed in their present operation, then I would expect them to attempt something akin to the larger encirclement of territory suggested at the top of this blog post. There may be relatively little opposition by that time. Also, the open and flat rural landscape will play to Russia’s strengths.

At that point (assuming that Zaporozhye, Dnipro, and perhaps Kharkov are all taken or bypassed), a very large assault on Kiev might be prepared.

I am assuming that the Ukrainian side is talking about their shortages of arms and ammunition in the hope that the UK and US (etc) will provide more and better. Maybe they will, maybe not.

That might be the case were Kiev seriously threatened. NWO/ZOG seems to want to provoke further conflict, so who knows?

So constructed ~1972. Ironic that the Soviet Union finally became at least liveable only a decade or so before its collapse.

The Jew Zelensky and his whole cabal know that their main chance is to lure the NATO allies deeper and deeper into this war, until —in effect— NATO forces are fighting Russian forces. Unfortunately, the largely Jewish-controlled or strongly influenced msm in the UK, USA and elsewhere are pushing Zelensky’s line, and his demand for more and heavier weaponry, and for more ammunition, rockets etc. If acceded to, that could lead to a nuclear war in Europe, and indeed across the USA, as well as across Russia.

The Bar continues to dig its own grave

https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/legal-regulators-pledge-to-stamp-out-non-inclusive-misconduct-/5112701.article.

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”.

As to cryptocurrencies, it is true that they are “without intrinsic value“, but that is also true of conventional currencies. I took a look at all that years ago on the blog: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/12/10/thoughts-about-bitcoin/.

If a sustained recession/slump/depression is around the corner, there yet might be time for social-nationalism to triumph. Remember 1929-1933…

Well said, Cartoonist Bob. As for that Dunt person, how can anyone make a living in political journalism when just plain wrong all or (maybe) almost all of the time? I can only suppose that anything absurd is possible in the Britain of 2022.

The majority just want to not have to bother with the Truth (with capital “T”). Too much effort.

…and people will listen with exaggerated respect to the tame thick princeling simply because of the “Prince” title. Same with Harry, of course.

Not that the message is “wrong”, as such. The only way to “save the planet” is to reduce the population by a considerable amount, maybe to about a tenth of the present aggregate number of people; equally important, most of that tenth should consist of white Northern Europeans.

There are a number of different tendencies all now working more or less together to destroy the decent foundations of world, and especially white European —or European-origined— society.

Ominous silence, empty streets, [then?] a howling siren…

Does not read like a description of a city whose governing rulers are “winning” a war…

I imagine that liquid fuel stocks will be major targets for Russian attack, eventually leading to both civilian and military vehicles under Ukrainian control being unable to move.

Europe however is itself groaning under the weight of the non-white influx.

I am unsure as to exactly why the USA seems even more full of crazed lesbians, angry “trans” “activists” etc than the UK. Maybe the USA is even more of a sick society than the UK. Open question.

Imagine if almost all 5-y-o children had such talents. That is what we aim for in the creation of a “super-race”— not political or military power, primarily, but a quantum leap in the overall level of advanced humanity.

Saturday quiz

Well, only 5/10 this week, though that was still enough to beat political journalist John Rentoul, who scored only 2/10 (and, as always, I commend his honesty in admitting it).

I did not know the answers to questions 2, 5, 7, 9, and 10.

I recall being shocked, when aged about 22, and when I visited St. Paul’s for the first (and I think only) time, and found it had a revolving door like a busy hotel, and —inside— stalls selling souvenirs etc.

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” [Matthew 21:12-13]

Here we are, 2000 years later, and Mammon still infects the house of Spirit…

As far as Boris-idiot is concerned, one can only agree.

These are the human carbuncles who purport to rule over us.

The Ukrainian side has “played a blinder” on propaganda. The Jewish regime in Kiev has managed to convince much of the Western world that Zelensky’s regime is a democratic government, with civil rights, despite the facts that all opposition parties are now banned, all opposition leaders in the country are under arrest and badly-treated, and any criticism of Zelensky or the war is met with arrest or worse.

Even the fact that a Ukrainian government negotiator was shot in the head in Kiev by Zelensky’s security people for being “pro-Russian” or “a Russian agent” has not damaged much the propaganda picture shown on Western television, because that incident was scarcely reported.

Despite the above, the propaganda picture effort is faltering now. More and more incidents or events have been shown up as completely fake: the “Ghost of Kiev” (non-existent), the Snake Island retort (never happened) and, more importantly, the whole narrative that Ukrainian forces are winning this war.

Ukrainian forces are losing at least as many men as the Russian Army, about 100 per day. Ukrainian forces may be (in the east of Ukraine) running out of fuel, ammunition, and food. The whole of Ukraine east of the Dnieper river and south of Kiev may soon be under Russian control.

A personal reminiscence

As noted yesterday, I happened to see the following YouTube video:

[Robert Powell, astrosophist, talking about, inter alia, the rise and fall of cultures and civilizations, and about astronomy, astrology, and astrosophy]

That is someone whom I met about 43 years ago, in or about 1979, at the Goetheanum, in Switzerland.

[Second Goetheanum, Dornach, near Basel, Switzerland https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goetheanum]
[The Goetheanum at dusk]

I was at the time a frequent visitor to the Library of the Anthroposophical Society in Park Road, London (near Regent’s Park). The librarian there, on discovering that I was intending to fly to Basel and to visit the Goetheanum, said that Robert Powell was living there, and he would write to him to the effect that I might be arriving, and perhaps he could show me around.

I was aware of Powell, because he was known by me to be connected to the works of Valentin Tomberg [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg].

Tomberg had settled, after WW2, in the mid-1940s, in the village (now a suburb) of Emmer Green, near Reading, Berkshire.

I myself was born, in 1956, at Reading. Now I discover (only yesterday) that Robert Powell was also born at Reading, at about the time that Tomberg settled in the area, in 1947.

As to my trip to Switzerland, I did go to the Goetheanum, arriving at Dornach [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dornach] late in the day. I checked into the little inn by the railway station and then set off at once to see the famous Goetheanum.

In fact, I had not been able to arrange anything specific by way of meeting Robert Powell.

On approaching the main doors of the Goetheanum (huge, like those at the Lubyanka in Moscow), I saw that the building had closed for the day, but an attendant appeared and, hearing that I had just come from London, offered to show me the building.

My impression? A feeling that it was halfway between a museum (such as the British Museum) and what I supposed an ancient Egyptian temple might have felt like (rather than looked like).

After that tour, I was shown out and, near the doors of the building, out of the near-darkness, a young man appeared and (having never met me, nor seen a photo of me) asked whether I was Ian Millard! This was Robert Powell, someone with a slight air of mystery, but worn lightly.

Powell lived somewhere in the vicinity (I do not believe that I ever saw where), and was apparently friendly with a German girl who also lived locally, whom I met, and who kindly took time to show me a couple of places.

Despite his having things to do, over the next few days, Powell met me several times, and showed me a few of the local sights seen by few: some ruined small mediaeval castles; the small lake where, supposedly, Parsifal first saw the Fisher King, another site by that lake where a small rivulet ran through stone blocks which formed a floor: this was, I heard, the place where Siegmund and Sieglinde lived, and where, in legend, “a river ran through their kitchen“.

Powell also showed me a place in the hills (Dornach is in the foothills of the Jura Mountains) where there was a kind of natural platform, in the stone of the hill itself, where there was a kind of oblong chamber in the rock, about the size of a human being plus about 6 inches all round. There was also a seat cut into the stone by the oblong chamber. This, I was told, was where a priest-initiate of the ancient (Central European) Celtic Mysteries would sit, guarding the pupil of those Mysteries who would be for three days in a comatose state in the oblong chamber, experiencing occult initiation.

The German girl mentioned took me to see a pleasant if slightly eccentric old lady who lived in a house close to the Goetheanum. She was of Russian extraction, I think, and had been there since the time of the building of the present Goetheanum in the 1920s (the first, wooden, one having burned down). In fact, she had herself known, or at least met, Rudolf Steiner, who started it all: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Steiner.

I spent the last few days of my week in the district mostly alone. I had transferred from the railway inn to an almost deserted anthropop guesthouse (this was Autumn-time) to save money, Switzerland being rather expensive. I attended a eurythmy performance at nearby Arlesheim, returned to the Goetheanum for a longer look around, and had a look around the nearby city of Basel —10 miles away—as well.

Interesting to see that Robert Powell is still around. The young man I encountered in Switzerland, and who is now author of many books on spirituality, astrosophy etc is still recognizable at the age of 74 or 75.

Wes Streeting, a non-Jew member of Labour Friends of Israel (I believe that all or almost all of Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet are LFI members). Streeting is a complete puppet. In fact he only became head of the National Union of Students in 2008, aged 25, because the Union of Jewish Students supported his candidature: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wes_Streeting.

One of the consequences of preventing almost anyone with ideas or independence from being selected as a System party candidate for Parliament is that only mediocrities, puppets, and complete idiots are selected. The pool of MPs is therefore composed largely of persons of those types.

Unwittingly satirical is the outfit, looking at the numbers of blacks who are trying to blag getting into Western Europe as “Ukrainian” “refugees”; Ireland has been stupid enough to allow in a number; maybe the UK as well.

I wonder what Rees-Mogg is thinking, as he stares down at that African woman, whom I presume (?) is some kind of diplomat.

Very strange. Is there a concerted purpose behind this?

Looking back now, it is clear that a major factor in the last two years or so of “panicdemic” was a mass psychological experiment, and on a huge scale across the world, with the intention not only of seeing how far the masses could be pushed, but of conditioning those masses to accept the most ridiculous strictures, such as the facemask nonsense, the “social distancing” nonsense etc. At what point would the masses say “this is just stupid…and I am not doing it!“?

Most never did. They obediently lined up, six feet apart, masks on, in order to buy bread, even when later (in the UK), the “rules” and fake “laws” were adjusted so that those stupid “rules” applied in the supermarket, but not in the pub across the road! Yet still 90%+ of the sheep complied, and even failed to see how ridiculous the whole thing was. Indeed, those who did protest online did so on the basis that the “rules” should apply everywhere, not because they should not have been imposed in the first place.

As Peter Hitchens predicted at the time, the present shambolic UK Government has managed to fairly easily create a propaganda narrative that the various “panicdemic” measures have been successful, and so, thanks to them (and of course the “vaccines”), the public is now free to enjoy the economic wasteland created by those stupid “rules”, “laws”, and “measures” (and the money largesse distributed by Indian “clever boy” Sunak).

The only decent future for Europe is as an alliance of independent ethnostates, loosely allied to or connected with Russia.

(((Barrister))) and LBC radio presenter apparently (but see below) cannot distinguish between “furlong” and “furlough“! Says it all about the state of both the Bar and msm broadcasting in 2022, unless he meant it as a deadpan kind of joke (I think that actually he was just joking; must have been).

Completely out of touch, if (again) he is being serious.

In a sense, the “panicdemic” was not just a conspiracy, but a concatenation of conspiracies.

Interesting. Valentin Tomberg wrote a little about “Isis unveiled by Science”, I seem to recall. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg.

Incidentally, I just saw, today, a YouTube video interview with someone I met about 43 years ago (at the Goetheanum, near Basel, Switzerland), and who knew someone I knew slightly in London. I think that I shall blog about that tomorrow, though, and will repost the video, which is here:

I have no idea who is that silly woman who says, in that clip, when “Boris”-idiot gets booed, “I certainly didn’t see that coming“. What planet is she living on? Most of the people of the UK now hate the idiotic part-Jew poseur, and the only reason that Labour is not higher in the opinion polls is because most people do not think that Starmer and his motley crew are much (if at all) better, overall.

“Boris” has not been overthrown by his own MPs yet for a like reason: who will replace him? Not because there are no Conservative MPs who would be as good/bad as “Boris”, but because there are no obvious candidates who would be far-and-away better.

The absurdity of it all is that you now see the most ridiculous Conservative Party MPs being suggested, in the msm as well as on social media, as suitable replacements for Johnson, as suitable party leader, and so as suitable Prime Minister.

I am talking about the likes of Liz Truss, Penny Mordaunt, even Nadine Dorries! How low, ethically, intellectually, and culturally, is the Conservative Party willing to go?

Maybe a more traditional figure such as Jeremy Hunt might still pick up the gauntlet.

The British police are no better. As said, this is a problem all across Europe, and maybe beyond. A problem, but also a symptom, a symptom of societies nearer to collapse than most people think.

Stand up, load up, and speak up for Western and white Northern European race and culture!
