“Pound of flesh” news

https://www.jpost.com/international/nazi-concentration-camp-guard-aged-100-starts-trial-in-germany-681306

The (((usual suspects))) are baying for blood, as always.

Don’t expect any mercy from “them”. They are not European and have a very different historical and genetic background to us.

As to the case itself, in 1945 the present defendant was 23 or 24. His duty was, apparently, to stand in a watch-tower for a certain number of hours per day. Now the Jew-Zionist-dominated “German” state is putting him on trial at the age of 100.

Should the American sentries at the gates of Los Alamos in 1944 or 1945 be put on trial because they “facilitated” the dropping of the atom bombs on Japan, and so “helped” to kill hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians? No? Why not, on this basis?

All part of the contrived and deliberately promoted madness of the present age, perhaps especially in the UK. I blogged about this a few years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/11/15/when-reality-becomes-subjective/.

I cited this tweet, which quotes the great G.K. Chesterton:

Basically true, though the exact figure for casualties in Dresden is still disputed, and may have been “only” 200,000, possibly as “low” as 25,000. WW2 statistics are frequently open to question (though the Dresden bombing and firestorm did at least take place, unlike the gassings in the mythical “gas chambers” etc).

[Dresden 1945, after Allied bombing caused a huge firestorm]

…but just wait until some lady talks about Jews on an Internet “radio” podcast, or posts a cartoon or two about “them”. Then the police are on the case at once! The lady in question might well be prosecuted…

Another and longer film about American rustbelt city, Gary (Indiana).

Interesting. In the Soviet Union, there were many (State-owned, of course) “company towns”, mostly founded under Stalin. Such industrial areas were part of a huge organized system, the [economic] Plan for a country 92x the size of the UK, and encompassing 11 time zones. A machine where each component was dependent on all other parts working.

When the Soviet system fell apart, many such cities all but collapsed, dependent as they were one one single plant or factory which found itself unable to sell products or to buy raw materials.

The industrial plant usually provided everything: transport, medical services, schools, and more. When the plant closed, the “social infrastructure” lost all funding. The result has been, over the past 30 years, population loss and, not infrequently, cities becoming abandoned areas.

Peter Hitchens neglects to point out that it is hardly surprising that the (supposedly) “educated classes” in Britain have not, en bloc, resisted the weaponization of “the virus” into a social-control measure or excuse. Most of them have done OK during the past year of nonsense, “working from home” and getting paid (in effect) more, saving up to 4 hours a day on the commute etc.

The same people also failed to resist the 2010-2019 (in reality, 2007-2019) “austerity” nonsense and cruelties, because they themselves, and their families, were largely exempt.

As I have pointed out before, revolutions may be led or counselled, or later consolidated if successful, by disaffected aristocrats and middle-class intellectuals, but are usually made by the mob. Look at 1789 (French Revolution), 1848 (revolutions across Europe), 1871 (Paris Commune), 1905 (uprising in St. Petersburg), 1917 (first Russian Revolution, then Bolshevik uprising), 1953 (uprising in East Berlin), 1956 (Hungarian Uprising), and so on.

Recognize the source of the lies. As always, mainly the Jew-Zionist element, now embedded in UK politics, civil service, msm, and law.

Fake “history” in the making. cf. “holocaust”…

There are quite a few odd people such as “@drdankeown” on Twitter, people who seem to think that we live in the world of Robin Hood, Cromwell, or King Arthur, a world in which the Monarch exercises real power, rather than simply being a constitutional figurehead with real privilege, something rather different.

Acting as Devil’s Advocate, I suppose that if, in some fantasy scenario, the Queen were to suddenly put herself forward as a kind of crowned dictator, and were to demand that police, Army etc follow her political and immediate direction, the vast majority might comply, in our 2021 UK where the notionally “elected” politicians are almost all fools, incompetents, knaves and/or traitors.

The fact, though, is that the Queen will not put herself up as such a tyrant, and her apparent successors, Charles and William, could never command such support, either among those who have sworn an oath, or the public generally.

Coronavirus

Just heard a story from someone; secondhand but thought reliable.

A lady in her nineties, in hospital for various matters, has apparently just been tested for “the virus” in hospital (where she had already been staying for about a month), and the test was positive.

The said person has no symptoms of “the virus” at all, but has now been put into an even more isolated ward than the one in which she had stayed for weeks. All the nurses and doctors, and I think the patients, wear masks pretty much constantly. I presume that hands are washed frequently.

The above seems to establish, at least on the balance of probabilities, that facemasks are pretty much irrelevant in terms of protection from “the virus”. Also, that the best way to get this virus is to be admitted to an NHS hospital…

Incidentally, I happened to see the comment below somewhere:

I have no idea whether that is arrant nonsense or not. It would seem to fit in with the “Great Reset”, though.

Interesting msm report from Germany

In 2008, just as Lehman Brothers imploded and the world descended into the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, Franco A. joined the army. He was 19.

In no time, he was selected as one of only a handful of German officer cadets to attend the prestigious Saint-Cyr military academy in France, founded in 1802 by Napoleon.

His five years abroad included semesters at Sciences Po in Paris and King’s College London as well as at Sandhurst, one of the British Army’s premier officer training schools, and a summer session at the University of Cambridge.

In 2013, he wrote a master’s thesis, “Political Change and Strategy of Subversion.”

Over 169 pages, Franco A. argued that the downfall of great civilizations had always been immigration and the dilution of racial purity brought about by subversive minorities. Europe and the West were next in line if they did not defend themselves, he said.

Ethnically diverse societies were unstable, he wrote, and nations that allow migration were committing a form of “genocide.”

His final section posits that the Old Testament was the foundation of all subversion, a blueprint for Jews to gain global dominance. It might be, he said, “the biggest conspiracy in the history of humanity.”

Franco A. himself began stockpiling a “prepper” cellar with food rations and other supplies. He also began obtaining guns and ammunition illegally, prosecutors say.” [New York Times]

Exactly. Look at the story at the head of today’s blog: an old lady, aged somewhere around 94 years old, now a statistic— a “new Covid-19 case”, because she has tested positive after a routine hospital check. In reality, that old lady has no symptoms at all, though she has lived, I am told, with several other serious medical conditions, and for some years.

That person is now part of the panicdemic narrative and will probably show up very soon in the official statistics, as part of the “second wave”, but what has changed, in reality? Nothing.

The “@amy_amorie” account is one of the best on Twitter.

Bad joke

Heard some “expert” on BBC Radio 4 Today. The education of UK children had to be prioritized (re “the virus”), said he. What education would that be? In the UK, children and young people are in school or similar training for 13 years. Can we really say that those 13 years are used properly? Not only by the pupils but by society? I think not, in most cases. The whole thing needs a rethink.

Today then continued with a piece by the Chief Rabbi! The propaganda never stops, in this country. That short daily quasi-religious piece is done at least once weekly, if not more often, by Jewish rabbis etc, yet Jews are only a fraction of 1% of the population. About 1 out of 200 at most. Disproportionate in the extreme.

Leaving aside the juridical element, I have wondered for some time what is happening in society, not just in the UK but worldwide, that so many people are now attempting to “change sex”, especially (it seems) male to female. Is it something genetic? Karmic? Is it “something in the water”? Maybe something to do with the cocktail of chemicals now synthesised and released into the environment?

Looks like even some of the System newspapers are getting sick of the pushy Jewish lobby, exemplified by the fake charity known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”]. Note also how an “apology” is demanded. “They” love to force “apologies” out of non-Jews. It has the effect of devaluing the apologizer and psychologically crushing him or her. The “demand” for “apologies” is a constant; look at the situation vis a vis the Jewish/Israel lobby and the UK Labour Party.

Israel, as a state, is no worse, and in some respects better, than the states that surround it. It is, of course, a fake state from one point of view; contrived, even more so than city-states such as Singapore or, say, Monaco.

For me, the objection to Israel (leaving aside how it was founded on the basis of terrorism, theft, robbery, trickery, and the expropriation of Arab Palestinian lands, is that Israel is more than a state. It is the centre of a global hub, the middle of a spider’s web of fraud, theft, conspiracy and worldwide political manipulation, using both the Jewish communities in many countries, and also non-Jew agents and catspaws (and “useful idiots”, in Lenin’s phrase), to exploit the peoples of the world.

Is the real centre of that web in Israel, or in the Jewish “communities” elsewhere? I rather think the latter, in fact.

For example, when I myself was in Kazakhstan (1996-97), I had considerable —almost daily— contact with both the British Embassy (which was walking distance from my home) and —to a lesser extent—the local diplomatic milieu generally. I met several of the ambassadors and got to know one or two personally. I certainly recall, apart from the British Ambassador, the American, Australian and Pakistani, as well as several lesser diplomats in various missions.

I never met the Israeli one, but was told by an Israeli businessman (an ex-IDF general) that Israeli ambassadors are very carefully controlled and evaluated by their bosses. They are judged on the quantity and quality of their contacts in a very precise way. From what I heard, at least, it seems that an Israeli embassy does not operate in the way of a normal one, but more like a rezidentura of the old KGB.

Look at those two tweets above, by a leading UK-based (ex-Israel) Zionist, who has been heavily involved in commentating and other activities relating to the Labour Party and to UK “antisemitism”.

His claim re. Israel is that it is “multi-ethnic”. That is true in the sense that there are numerous ethnic groups there. It is a “false truth”, though. It would be absurd to think that any group other than the Jews control everything of importance in Israel.

I think that that is how “they” see the world in general. They have no wish to “convert” the world to Judaism (and the strictly religious ones at least say that that is not possible anyway —including those Ethiopian “Jews”). They do not even wish to kill non-Jews, in general. What they do want is to exercise general world control, and to fruitfully exploit the world for, mainly, their own benefit.

My view? I do not agree to them controlling the world.

An interesting exchange, pointing out as it does the immense social changes in Britain in the 20th Century, and brought about, partly, by the two world wars.

I have no idea what “Mailchimp” is, but I take it that we are talking about the latest censorship, or “private-public partnership” for a “police state” (as it used to be called.

That chart is an overview. Much of rural Britain, and even of suburban Britain, is still British. Regions such as the South West (outside Bristol) are largely untouched, even today.

Look at the tweet below: wants European children to be even more brainwashed…

Hard to respond except with laughter, at this stage…

Below, another one of his pearls of “wisdom”:

That’s rubbish. I knew a number of women who had bank accounts, yes in their own names, in the early 1970s.

Never rely on random “facts” seen via Google searches…In fact, a small number of women had accounts even in the 17th Century, though it is true that few had accounts prior to 1882; but by the 20th Century that was fairly common (in the UK).

https://www.natwestgroup.com/heritage/subjects/women-in-banking.html

Yet that idiot’s tweet has had 33,000 “likes” in two days! Fake “news”…and the Twitterati lap it up.

Actually, relatively few men (maybe under 50%) had bank accounts either until fairly recent times. I recall seeing a statistic in the newspaper in the early 1970s, to the effect that only 25% of UK people had bank accounts (though many had building society or Post Office accounts, which at the time were different).

One called Rudd (which I in fact knew already). I have always wondered whether Amber Rudd is part-Jew, though I have, at present, insufficient information. She was certainly a paid-up member of the Israel lobby.

Diary Blog, 16-17 June 2020

The msm are mostly still parrotting the line that “Coronavirus” caused the impending UK economic and social tsunami, when in fact it was the “lockdown” (shutdown) that (mostly) caused it and is still causing it (and don’t be duped into thinking that a few thousand fat young women poured into tight jeans and lining up outside Primark (desperate, presumably, to buy a larger size?) will make much difference.

Some commentators are belatedly forecasting 3 million unemployed, one or two are going as high as ten million.

Meanwhile, an opinion poll says that a third of the whole UK population are too scared to leave their houses! All because of a propaganda campaign which has been, arguably, the biggest farrago of untrue nonsense since the non-existent “gas chambers” of the “holocaust” narrative.

It recalls to my mind a weekend I once spent with the British Army, over 30 years ago, and “somewhere in Kent”. A mixed male/female group. We had to do exercises such as one where an area of woodland had been marked out with tape. This was “contaminated ground” and we had to work out weird and wonderful ways of crossing that area without touching the ground.

It was all taken very seriously by the attendees, all of us dressed in olive-green jump suits and with a number on the front and back. I think that mine was 22, or perhaps 21. People were only addressed by their number, not by name. That was a rule. Another was that the “contaminated ground” was to be treated as if real, though we knew that it was not.

That is “lockdown”, with its crazy rules that are mostly senseless, in accord with the make-believe “facts” about the “virus”.

You have to keep 6 feet apart at all times, and (until very recently) not drive (even in a sealed car) anywhere beyond X-miles from your home (the distance not specified but to be decided by any stray motorized Plods that you may encounter en route).

You can (now) go to Bicester Village shopping outlet with a thousand or more other shoppers inches apart, but you may not visit any friends or family not in your designated “bubble” (the details of which only you know about and no policemen can know about and so cannot enforce even if there were enough Plods to do so).

You must wear a facemask on buses, trains, or in hospitals, but only in England (not in Scotland or Wales), and no-one (in England) not wearing a mask or similar can use a bus or a hospital (but shops are OK…). Oh, and the World Health Organization said (until last week) that facemasks were unnecessary for most people. Still, “rules are rules”, so all wear one anyway, then go stand outside your houses and clap like complete idiots to show that you are good citizens or whatever…

If you are a Brit living overseas, or a foreign visitor, you can come to the UK, so long as you promise on Bible, Koran, Torah or the Selected Works of Marx that you will “self-isolate” for two weeks, and at an address which you will provide to immigration officials (no proof required) at Heathrow on arrival. Priti Patel truly is as thick as two short planks.

The whole thing has just become madder and madder.

I myself would not object to the removal of the Bomber Harris statue, partly because he was —even bearing in mind the terrible war in which he led a major contingent— something akin to a mass murderer; partly because the statue is not so old (1990).

The mad thing is that the “Black Lives Matter” idiots want Harris’s statue taken down not because the bombing campaign Harris led in the years 1941-1945 was a major factor, probably the major factor, in the killing of an estimated 800,000 German civilians during the Second World War, but because Harris spent 5 years in Rhodesia (when aged 17-22) and so was a “colonialist”! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Arthur_Harris,_1st_Baronet

Robert Jenrick

That little pissant, Robert Jenrick, is in trouble.

A minister admitted last night he knew he was saving a Tory donor tens of millions of pounds in approving a £1billion property scheme.

Robert Jenrick faces claims of ‘cash for favours’ over his dealings with former newspaper tycoon Richard Desmond.

He over-ruled the local council and a planning inspector a day before the introduction of a community levy that would have cost the billionaire between £30million and £50million.” [Daily Mail]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8424291/Housing-Secretary-Robert-Jenrick-admits-giving-green-light-1bn-development-helped-Tory-donor.html

The Daily Mail fails to point out that Richard Desmond is a Jew.

Jenrick is married to Michal Berkner, an Israeli-born corporate lawyer. They have three daughters, whom they are bringing up in the Jewish faith.[1][39][18]

Jenrick owns two £2m homes in London, one of which is a £2.5m townhouse less than a mile from the Houses of Parliament. He also owns Eye Manor, a Grade I listed building in Herefordshire which he purchased for £1.1 million in 2009.[40][41] His constituency of Newark is 150 miles (240 km) from his ‘family home’ in Herefordshire.[42] He rents a £2,000-a-month property in his Newark constituency,[38] which he bills to the taxpayer.” [Wikipedia]

China and other places

I was idly looking at pictures of some of the Chinese cities. Some are massive yet quite new. Take Shenzhen, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shenzhen , which scarcely existed until recent decades, though there were once historic villages in the area, much as Manchester in the UK expanded hugely in the 19thC from a modest starting point: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester

I suppose that the same was true of Chicago in the 19thC; in 1833, Chicago had only 200 inhabitants, but over 4,000 by 1840 (1900, 1.7 million; 1930, 3.4 million) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago#19th_century

Once China had taken “the capitalist road”, albeit under “Communist” banners, the economy expanded, indeed exploded. I saw these photographs of Shenzhen:

[above: the present main business centre of Shenzhen as it was in 1998; below: the same general area today]
[above: Central Business District]

Europe, to the Chinese, is something rather quaint, to be made into part of a theme park!

I was in Hong Kong, and also Macau, in 2006. Fascinating, though I should not like to live there. I do tend to find fascinating what human beings can create in terms of cities and parks.

The Internet is incredible, though I expect that anyone born after 1985 or so simply accepts it as part of normal life. It is only now, looking at maps etc, that I realize how close and closely hemmed-in by massive Chinese urbanizations is Hong Kong. That is not obvious to the visitor, because Hong Kong is still cut off from “mainland” China both by high hills and by a “frontier closed area” which was initially established under British rule. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frontier_Closed_Area

In some areas, the border fence echoes those between the USA and Mexico, or between Israel and the West Bank

It may not be the same for Hong Kong inhabitants, but for the visitor, Hong Kong seems a world unto itself. It is only when you look at the map that you realize to what extent Hong Kong is a kind of isolated or reserved part of that vastly larger surrounding Chinese urbanization which laps at its borders like an ocean surrounding an island. The Shenzhen area has about 13 million inhabitants, compared to 7.5 million in Hong Kong.

I dislike the Chinese attitude to the natural world and particularly animals, but at the same time the Chinese are impressive in their capabilities and in their sense of scale.

From the sublime to the ridiculous. Monaco.

I saw on TV the second of a three-part series about the microstate. I have never been there, though I have heard about it from people I know. I once had a Finnish girlfriend who loved it, and had been accustomed to going there once or twice per year. What she liked about it was the absence of detritus (inanimate or human) as compared to London and other cities; also the enveloping luxury.

I find (see above) “self-generating” cities and states very interesting. Places like Singapore. It does not mean that I should wish to live in one! Monaco is another place which would not suit me, for several reasons.

For one thing, whenever I see Monaco on TV, it looks so crowded that it resembles an anthill. This is in fact accurate, because the population density is about 48,000 persons per square mile, nearly three times as dense as Hong Kong and 2.5 times the density of Singapore.

There is a (slight) resemblance to Hong Kong…

Another aspect (admittedly judging only by what I have seen on TV) is that the foreign residents seem to have nothing but dollar signs, greed and emptiness in their eyes. As for the Monegasques, who are only about 8,000 out of a total population of 38,000, they are more of a clan than a nation, it seems to me.

The ultra-wealthy, who are there for the tax advantage and the police-state security, pay for their behaviour by having to spend at least some of their time there (again, my possibly jaundiced view…).

A “state” which covers only 4/5ths of a square mile, and which is therefore smaller than the combined Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens in London, is a bit of a joke from one point of view, but there it is. It has its function, just like, say, the Vatican, which has an area of less than 1/5th of a square mile. The one may not have many divisions in its “army” but has the spiritual allegiance (even today) of hundreds of millions of people; the other’s power lies in the facilitation of matters of money.

The TV documentary I saw spent some time with the ruler, Prince Albert, who (in what is almost rule by Divine right) is seemingly held in awe by his subjects and foreign residents. I was surprised to hear him sound exactly like an American. I knew that his mother was the film star, Grace Kelly, but to see him sound and look rather like an American businessman was unexpected. On the surface, he seemed amiable enough, though.

Prince Albert lives in a rather Ruritanian set-up, which made me laugh, but in fact Monaco’s princely house is actually one of the oldest in Europe, if not the very oldest. I suppose that that is because, until the late 19th Century (when Monaco’s fortunes were transformed by the Casino), this was one of the poorest parts of Europe. In other words, no-one could be bothered to invade it, especially with it being so small (though it was relieved of Menton and another town during the 19thC).

The documentary showed the Palace Guard, in smart white uniforms spoiled rather by black parade boots. Behind the scenes, there was an efficient-looking military and bodyguard operation.

A strange little enclave, but efficiently run. I did not know before (or from the documentary), but saw today in Wikipedia, that there is still a railway there (underground).

Coronavirus lockdown nonsense etc

Patronizing insults from the ignorant are a Twitter speciality. When I was on Twitter, I was called everything under the Sun by people who (often behind a pseudonym) evidently thought themselves far better informed, educated or intelligent than me. I recall one little Irish bumboy who, having read my background in brief, as on this blog, informed his few Twitter followers about how unimportant I was and how far I had fallen into obscurity and poverty. Yes, a little student bumboy from Southern Ireland (who has probably never been beyond — or even to— Dublin in his life, who has no profession, no job, no future…).

Twitter specializes in the sort of people who, though semi-literate, will call you an idiot, or a “knuckledragger”, for not wanting the UK to become even more of a multikulti dustbin. Then there are those who will say “he must never have met a black/Muslim/Jew/whatever“. They would probably be quite surprised to discover, inter alia, how many countries I have been to, including some, in various parts of the world, where I have even lived, worked and, indeed, been married! Yet people whose sole exposure to other cultures has been a week in Majorca, or a gap-year stint teaching English in Thailand or bumming around in Goa (or even just a weekly Chinese takeaway), will assume that they are far more informed than me…

Likewise, you get people (who have never achieved the slightest thing in their whole lives) who will talk about how those with whom they disagree are “old”, “failures”, “without influence”, even “morons” etc. They, almost invariably, are looking in the mirror (even as regards age, sometimes)!

That’s Twitter. Peter Hitchens is (must be) far more patient than me. As I have speculated before, he must regard it as some kind of duty, perhaps a religious duty, to debate, at least for a while, even with those who insult him.

I just have no time for the nonsense of it.

Dim tweet of the day?

Ha ha…how original…

One wonders where the discontented voters of 2021-2024 will go. Misnamed “Labour” is no alternative, not being far from “the same old” convergence LibLabCon, but with different puppets on sticks. There is effectively no LibDem party now, and the LibDem bolt was shot some time ago. As to radical parties of any kind, there are, as yet, none.

2020-2022 and beyond

My knowledge of numerical cycles told me that 2022 is the first really significant year, in terms of the Zeitgeist, since 1989. However, the logical Western post-1400 AD brain said to me “how?”.

Now, with two years to go, it already looks more likely than it did a few months ago that 2022 could see a sea-change. In the UK, with unemployment, poverty, lack of opportunity all set to soar, with a government of near-imbeciles in power, and with an official Opposition no better and just as Jew/Zionist-ridden, there is a real chance for a social-national movement of importance, for the first time since 1939 or even 1929.

This is funny (see below):

Many of these “trans people” seem mentally afflicted.

Ha ha! See below.

I want as many BBC —and other msm talking heads and scribblers— to lose their jobs, or freelance work, as possible. 99% are enemies of the people and/or useless and ignorant tools of ZOG/NWO.

Soon, the catastrophe brought onto the UK and much of the rest of Europe by evil-intentioned or incompetent governments will be with us. We, as the vanguard of the social national movement, which as yet hardly exists, must be ready to strike. The ground is being prepared for us.

The 20th of July 2019: thoughts

derfuhrer

Today is the 75th anniversary of the attempt made to assassinate Adolf Hitler at his headquarters in East Prussia, the Wolfsschanze (Wolf’s Lair), now situated within the borders of post-1945 Poland.

I blogged last year about matters around the event and around those times more generally:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/20/the-20th-of-july/

What is there to add? Perhaps a reminder that human manifestations on this Earth do not last forever. The film, below, shows what the sprawling headquarters of 1944 is like today: as abandoned and lost as the cities of the Aztecs or the Mayans.

On the other hand, the devastated cities of the Germany of 1944 and 1945 are today thriving governmental, commercial, cultural and residential centres, with populations again in the hundreds of thousands or even millions.

The above photographs show the devastation resulting from war. Today, those same areas are prosperous, busy, thronged with inhabitants. Some of the old has been replaced, some kept, adapted to contemporary usage.

The same is true of ideas. Both the practical and the spiritual-cultural achievements of National Socialism were huge, enormous, particularly when it is considered that they were achieved within only 6 years of peace, the years 1933-1939. SIX YEARS!

We do not need to copy or indeed defend everything that was done by, or in the name of, the Reich. Indeed, many of the flaws of the Reich, or supposed flaws, existed and in fact were even more glaring in both the West and the Soviet Union of the 1930s. The Zeitgeist streamed over the world as a whole, like the jetstream.

In 2019, we honour what was good in the Reich, what worked for the German people and the peoples of all Europe. The rest, we do not need. Times move on. Some challenges remain; others, newly emerged, have to be faced for the first time.
