April 20th is the anniversary of the birth of Adolf Hitler, the Fuhrersgeburtstag.
When will we be free?…
The same thing happened to me in 2018 when I had a Twitter account. Every time the number of “followers” got to 3,000, it dropped back to between 2,500 and 3,000. Then the Jew lobby had me expelled anyway. The true number of Twitter followers I had was probably at least 6,660…
Same ballpark as on previous occasions over the last couple of years, though I was previously slightly closer to the central position. Want to try it yourself? See https://www.politicalcompass.org/test.
The tweeter means well, but the war on European humanity will not be fought against and won by signing petitions, tweeting, blogging etc…
The Islamists (or in Imran Khan’s case, faux-Islamists) are learning from the Jew-Zionists and their attempts to criminalize, inter alia, any questioning of the “holocaust” farrago…
Once freedom of expression goes, it goes. In the UK, we have seen that singer-songwriter and commentator Alison Chabloz was recently convicted of making a few remarks (both unexceptionable and in fact true, if robustly put) about Jewish behaviour. That is how freedom of expression is destroyed, when a special-interest group makes expression of opinion liable to result in a criminal charge.
As far as Alison Chabloz is concerned, last year (2020), the CAA (via a suborned Police and Crime Commissioner, police, at least one MP, and lawyers of the Crown Prosecution Service) managed to have Alison put on trial and then locked up for 2-3 days (4 including days of arrival and departure). She was granted bail pending appeal, and later won that appeal when the CPS had either to give up or to reveal details of the backstairs conspiracy which involved both the CPS and the other above-designated actors.
In fact, the days Alison spent in custody after lodging of that appeal have now been credited to her in respect of her present sentence. Good news.
Alison’s present situation is that she remains in Bronzefield Prison, near Heathrow Airport, where she has been since her recent conviction on 31 March 2021. In other words, she has, as of today, served three weeks and a day. Not including days of trial. She has applied, via Counsel, for bail pending appeal, before a Crown Court judge, but been refused.
Alison Chabloz was sentenced to 18 weeks. The usual 50% discount for release “on licence” (commonly referred to as “parole” in most countries) reduces that to 9 weeks. Days of custody after charge, and days of court hearing, including the two days of trial, take off at least another week; the 4 days spent wrongly imprisoned in 2020 are also taken off. All of that may add up to 2 weeks, thus making Alison’s time actually in prison about 7 weeks, meaning that she would normally expect to be released on licence sometime in the second half of May.
Word from usually-reliable sources is that Alison will in fact be released early on electronic tag next Monday, 26 April 2021. That, however, is not certain, as far as I know.
While it is possible that Alison will be released within the next 5 days, that is not certain. She would no doubt like to receive contact or any modest sums of money (sent by your debit card via a government-run site).
A 95-year-old woman is to be tried in Germany. Her crime? She was the secretary of a WW2 camp commandant, in fact based (it seems) outside the camp itself.
The German police state (the present one, not the 1933-1945 Reich) has prosecuted her as a scapegoat for those now long-dead. Others have in recent years suffered similarly, such as very old men who, as boys of 18, belonged to the Wehrmacht or SS and did low-level work in concentration camp offices, or other activity. Even accountants have found themselves charged with complicity in the alleged death of thousands of Jews or others.
Of course, behind the conscienceless prosecutors of Merkel’s Germany stand the Jews and Israel, on the international level.
Another interesting contrast is between the bleeding heart pseudo-liberals and their refrain in relation to almost any criminal (that people should be treated leniently, released early etc), and the same bleaters when someone of 95 or 100 is on trial for supposed “crimes” “committed” by Germans in the early 1940s (such as shuffling paper in railway offices). Then, the “liberalism” vanishes, because the one-time 18 year old SS recruit or 18 year old secretary was “a Nazi”, i.e. was alive in the Germany of 1941-1945.
Were the 18 year old secretaries or draftees of 1945 Los Alamos (New Mexico) somehow responsible for Hiroshima and Nagasaki? No? Why not? If they were not guilty of wartme mass killing, then neither is a very old lady who was secretary to an SS commandant in 1944 or 1945 when she was 18 or 19…
The Guardian report even recycles the discredited “six million” stuff…
Farcically, the persecuted and prosecuted 95 year old (presently resident in a care home), will be tried in a youth court, because she was under 21 during WW2! Alice in Wonderland, in German translation.
That very old woman is a pawn in a game of “holocaust” publicity, the game being yet another ZOG Schauspiel.
I think that there may have been 10 incidents, in fact. Others say 10 stabbings in 5 incidents. Net result more or less the same. Seems that some blacks have not taken the “Black Lives Matter” mantra too seriously…
Paramedic tweeter “@peepculture” finds it a puzzle what is happening. His Twitter profile has a “rainbow” motif etc. It naturally must be puzzling or even hurtful to people who perhaps sincerely believe that a multiracial, multicultural society can work, when all human history shows that it cannot, not for long anyway.
Looking at that “von Sternberg”, he certainly did not look German. I sought the answer. Wikipedia informed me that his real name was in fact Jonas Sternberg; Jew. The “von” presumably added for reasons of fashion, though I presume not camouflage (after all, most Hollywood studios were run by and riddled with Jews even in the 1930s, few of whom thought to attempt to conceal their origins).
Damn. John Rentoul got 6/10 today, better than me, who scored only 5/10. That is only the —I think— third (maybe even second) time he has beaten me since I started doing the quiz months ago. Today, I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 8, 9, and 10.
In my unpublished book written in 1990-91 (which a reader from a famous 5th Avenue literary agency said (in a very Ivy League rejection letter!) was “undoubtedly the most extraordinary work I have ever read. It will never get published in New York“), I explored, inter alia, the concept of the “dead end”, and in particular the idea that Western society, which effectively means world society, has come to a dead end except in terms of technical and scientific matters.
The above idea can be seen in almost every field.
Example: saw yesterday this tweet from a Jew academic:
Emeritus professor of economics at a well-known American university, no less, yet all he can offer is a derivative 1930s Marxist-Leninist Soviet propaganda “analysis”. He’s at least 85 years out of date!
At present, our society is either static, or degenerating. The question, which I can pose but not answer, is whether a leap, perhaps “quantum leap”, can be made to a new society, or whether our society has first to be destroyed in its present form. The former is an easier route, but I do not know at present whether it will be possible.
Tweets seen today
The Jews like to present themselves as the creators and maintainers of Western civilization, but are more often in the character of its degenerators and destroyers.
Him and at least six million, if not 16 million, others of a similar type.
Interesting “virus” report
“Covid-19 could have a long-term effect on male fertility, German study claims“…
Does that mean that the “Covid-19” vaccine(s) would have a similar, or similar but lesser, effect? My own medical and scientific knowledge is limited, so my question is not really rhetorical: I actually do not know the answer.
A form of scarcely-disguised (((corruption)))…
…and at the same time, and what a surprise (not)…the supposedly “nationalist” Sinn Fein are bending the knee to the migrant invaders! How are the mighty fallen!
An American revisionist view of Hitler
I myself would not agree with everything said by the presenter, but it is a reasoned view, all the same.
Boris Johnson, the part-Jew, part-Turk posing as Prime Minister, is a traitor, and that on a strategic scale or level.
This is also good as an introduction to the idea that "antisemitism is the socialism of fools", which basically runs on the same logic. Slavoj Zizek always shills this nonsense in between spitting on his audiences and twitching like he needs a heroin IV. https://t.co/KORw4D66lV

Kate Ferguson, who is apparently Westminster Correspondent at the Sun “newspaper”, and who apparently does not know that the phrase she is trying to use is a variant of “…and with one bound he was free”… I mean, this is not some ignorant pleb tweeting. Oh, no…wait…
Yet another unintended comment on the state of British “journalism” and “journalists” today.
There are few considered more anti-Israel or “antisemitic” than me, but credit where due— this is, on the face of it, a tremendous achievement.
The “virus” fall-out
The various Government measures to mitigate, not the virus but the Government’s own policies in relation to it (“lockdowns”, “tiers”, quarantining, etc) bought off real popular opposition last year. The Government took a leaf from the book of Aneurin Bevan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aneurin_Bevan], who said that he had bought off opposition from medical doctors to the establishment of the NHS by having “stuffed their mouths with gold” (i.e. allowing senior doctors (“consultants”) to take on private work as well as receiving relatively high NHS pay).
“Furlough” payments ensured that, in 2020, many received effectively the same pay as before, but for no work (“furlough” was capped at 80% of net pay to a maximum of £2,500 p.c.m., but that was close to 100% for most, when the costs of just having a job are factored in: travel, snacks, drinks, clothes etc).
Many others were able to “work from home”, which might have had disadvantages for some but many advantages for others: no travel costs; a saving of (?) 1-5 hours of travel on the day, depending on the commute; the possibility to organize the day to suit the employee; no “boss” people supervizing the employee directly, or able to see what the employee is doing during the working day.
Naturally, the higher-paid working from home would have been, and are, in a better position than the lower-paid: perhaps large detached houses, perhaps also with swimming pools, tennis courts, large gardens in which to relax etc. One could imagine some, working in between swimming, and perhaps drinking Chardonnay ordered online and delivered to the door (I seem to remember that, even nearly 20 years ago, Sainsbury’s would not only deliver my wife’s orders, but actually take the stuff into the kitchen for her).
Also, companies started to demand Government help. Even those run by tax exiles such as Richard Branson. Some help was given.
Not everyone was taken care of by Government largesse. The self-employed, thhose running the smaller and one-man companies etc. The majority of the population, though, was shut up in both senses by Government order and Government money. Even the unemployed (etc) on Universal Credit, got a £20 a week increase.
Now, however, after much to-ing and fro-ing, we find ourselves back in “lockdown”.
Once again, the furlough is extended. Once again, failing businesses are, in some cases, being propped up, smaller airports among them. For how long, though?
Today, we heard that Newquay Airport (which I myself used a few times in the past) will be given money. I do not know whether other airports I used to use, e.g. Exeter and Southampton, are in a similar position.
Let us examine what might happen. Let us say that “the virus”, whether because of natural decline, the vaccine(s), whatever, disappears some time in 2021 from the UK. Air travel will take a long long time to recover, especially if countries are to insist on quarantines and “virus-free” certification. Will UK airports, airlines, ground services etc need or demand propping-up for years? Is that even possible?
We read that the UK Government can borrow money at very low, almost zero, interest at present. Good, but for how long?
We now read that the Government wants to reduce Universal Credit by £20 a week, while chucking those currently on it £500 in cash. There may be a revolt by Conservative MPs, and a possible Government defeat in the coming days.
The argument over UC payments presages coming disputes. No matter how much can currently be borrowed by the UK Government, eventually that will become unsustainable. What then? Already, State benefits paid to the unemployed are at their lowest since 1992 and, according to other calculation, overall benefits were not this low in real terms since the 1960s, which however was a era of, effectively, full employment.
The present government cannot simply, say, raise the State Pension (“Old Age Pension”, as was) entitlement age from 66, where it will be from 2022, to he age of 67, or 68, or 70, not without a massive backlash from voters aged over 65, and they are a half of all Conservative supporters: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-politics-47909281. They are also far more likely to vote.
In other words, if the present government hits the pensioners or those looking at shortly becoming pensioners, it is toast.
The Government is looking at the unemployed and others as targets because they are less significant electorally, though at the same time, 40% of UC claimants are actually not unemployed but are in low-paid work.
Unsurprisingly, Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak is not going to introduce a windfall wealth tax. He wants to extract money from the poor or poor-ish, while not dooming his party electorally.
What about demand in the economy? Already low. The poor spend all or almost all of what they have; they have no choice. The rich, given extra money, invest it, often in hedging assets: property, savings accounts, gold etc. It makes sense to give more to the poor and less to the rich (however defined).
Once the various mitigation measures tail off, unemployment —and discontent—– will soar.
One can see storms coming. God grant social-nationalism the way in which to take advantage of them for the good of the people. “For the good of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].

Meanwhile, the USA has concentration camps today, both at Guantanamo and elsewhere, including secret ones. The inmates are in many cases treated as badly or worse than were those in WW2 Germany, or even the Soviet Union’s GULAG operation. The American concentration camps have doctors too, as does the CIA.

The “@Amy_amorie” Twitter account is usually worth seeing.

Surprising, perhaps, that Andrew Neil put it that way, but then again he is very much pro-Jew and pro-Israel, and ranted a few times on TV (on his now-defunct late-night BBC2 show) about “Nazis”, “racists” etc. Demeaning (to him); it takes the gloss off his being the best political interviewer in the UK.
The “new” politics (since the 1960s), now everywhere…
In the end, it will have to be confronted…
We shall see…
Peter Hitchens makes, once again, a good point, but fails to point out that the present Kiev regime, posing as the legitimate overnment of the Ukraine, is a complete Jewish-Zionist sham. All the top ministers are Jewish, and at least one is actually an Israeli!
“The whole point of the law is its cool impartiality, its judgment of the facts by a jury, and of the law by an impartial, dispassionate judge. If judges are going to start offering politico-medical lectures from the bench, it changes us into a completely different kind of country. In effect, a defendant in such cases is on trial for his opinions, not his actions.
Does Judge Matthews desire such a state of affairs? I doubt it. In that case she should not do this again. But I fear someone else will. Much that we used to know and trust about this country is vanishing with amazing speed.” [Peter Hitchens, Daily Mail].
All very true. Part of the problem is that “District Judges” (the old stipendiary magistrates) are not, in the traditional sense, real “judges”. Mostly solicitors who have applied for these rather simple jobs, which however pay quite well (I think that a full-time DJ gets about £110,000 p.a. now).
Well, things have certainly gone downhill fast in the UK and across the Western world as the build-up to 2022 continues. In the UK, an increasingly obvious police state; also, the likelihood of a new “austerity” drive from 2022, with “the virus” (and “rule flouters”) blamed rather than the 2010-2019 scenario of the “banking crisis” (with, in the UK, and ludicrously, the unemployed and disabled etc getting the blame for both the failure of the finance-capital system and also the subsequent and completely unnecessary “austerity” policies).
Then we have the msm propaganda retailed mainly in TV soaps, “dramas”, ads etc: the mixed-race couples and offspring, the increasingly bizarre LBGTXYZ stuff; all of that.
What else? Well, the attack on free speech, spearheaded by, though not confined to, the Jew-Zionist element. We have now seen the President of the United States (leaving aside his general unworthiness) actually expelled from Twitter, Facebook etc, and even his tweets from the official U.S. Presidential Twitter account taken down by Twitter staff!
All this supposedly to “make the world safe for democracy”, in effect. Where have we heard that before?!
In the UK, both high-profile and many lesser-known people have been prevented from posting on social media, among them Katie Hopkins, David Icke, Alison Chabloz, Ian Millard (me). Many many thousands of people.
Only today we see that the Parler platform has been killed off by a cartel of huge transnational enterprises, all signed up to the international conspiracy: Apple, Google, Amazon, etc.
All of the above is part of the working out of the “Great Replacement” and the connected “Great Reset” (and the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan). It is a conspiracy on a monumental scale.
…and the message to Trump in the dying days of his Presidency must be, “PARDON those who stormed the Capitol, PARDON Assange, PARDON Snowden, and PARDON all social-national and allied prisoners suffering in US Federal prisons.”
Below, a tweet reposted for purposes of amusement:
I wonder what triggered that explosion of anger.
Quite. “Lockdown” life is easy for msm scribblers who, in the case of Dan Hodges, lives in a large detached house (with large garden) in Blackheath, with his wife, children and mother, the actress Glenda Jackson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenda_Jackson].
A good headline point. The atomization of Western society is exemplified by the dictatorial supposedly “anti-virus” measures, which in the UK soon may see it become a crime to leave your house more than once per week. I have no idea whether 100%, 50% or only 10% of people would actually comply, and how many, or what percentage, might turn to direct action against the installations of the State. We shall have to wait to find out.
US police state. Enemy of the State was only the beginning…
Below, what appears to be footage from the American police state:
People such as Peter Hitchens (with whom I agree on some issues), people such as conservative nationalists (with whom I agree on some issues) and others think that we are trying to “have a debate“, and that those behind or supporting the “Great Replacement”, “Great Reset” etc are mere intellectual opponents, who are being unfair in closing down platforms, websites, Twitter accounts etc.
Wrong. This is not the Oxford Union, and we are not in the columns of the Spectator or the New Statesman. This is a war, a war which white Northern Europe and its peoples, and those offshoots in North America, Australasia etc have to win. A war for existential survival. This is, in effect, White Genocide, if we fail.
The war may be mainly a “cold war” so far, but that will not last forever. Eventually it will be a real war, and not one such as we have, for the most part, known since the 18th Century. More like those wars written about in the Old Testament, and in the ancient Indian (early post-Aryan) sacred texts such as the Bhagavad-Gita. Dualistic conflict. Good against Evil.

Most people will comply out of fear of being fined, or because of social pressures whipped up by Government and msm propaganda. A minority will evade, or in some cases openly confront. A small minority will hit back in a serious way.
A “holocaust” “survivor”, born in a WW2 camp in Austria, who spent one week there until American forces arrived. Don’t they see how mad this is (and reads)?
Incidentally, that Israeli report says at first that the said “survivor” was born at Mauthausen camp, and then lived there for a month; later it clarifies that, and says that she was only there for one week! How long was the stay? A month, a week, or maybe even only one day? I myself know nothing of the matter and, of course, cannot say whether the account is true at all, though there is no particular reason to disbelieve the entirety of the narrative .
Obviously, elderly persons cannot actually remember anything of what happened to them when they were a day, a week, or a month old. The report says that the person mentioned tells stories about her mother, on the premise that the mother had told them to the daughter.
Equally obviously, I know nothing of what happened to that mother during or before WW2. How long was she at that camp? It is unclear where she originated. From the surname, maybe in Czechoslovakia.
Mauthausen is in Austria, which joined with Germany after the plebiscite of 1938. Czechoslovakia was entirely annexed to the German Reich in 1939. The central Mauthausen camp was constructed from 1938, and became a labour camp in 1939. There were offshoots. In other words, it was in operation for up to 7 years.
We do not know whether the mother of the “survivor” mentioned in the Times of Israel report was at Mauthausen from the late 1930s, early 1940s, or only during 1945 when the Americans arrived. Later rather than earlier, in all probability. At any rate, the mother also survived the war and, according to the newspaper report, died in 2013 in the UK.
There is a continuing propaganda effort made by Israel and by Zionists resident elsewhere. We should never accept accounts, whether first-hand or, as here, secondhand (or third-hand), naively, meaning on trust. Not when there is a large-scale operation behind these sorts of accounts.
Moreover, the “historical” aspect is to some extent a red herring. The real purpose is to reinforce Zionist power now, in the contemporary world.
China, for all its impressive achievements ancient and modern, is appalling. There is a self-interested cabal in Britain, centred on the financial industry, that is effectively a pro-China lobby group. Many MPs have also been bought or suborned by China. We should be joining with Russia to oppose China, NWO and ZOG (though Russia is itself not uncontaminated by the last).
Oh…and look at this! I blogged about the egregious Professor Ferguson only yesterday or the day before:
“PETER HITCHENS: Guess where Professor Lockdown got his ideas … China’s police state…” [Mail on Sunday]
“One of the strangest things about our recent national madness has been the role of Professor Neil Ferguson, the physicist who has somehow come to dominate Johnson’s Covid policy.
Physicist? Yes, that is his main academic discipline. He doesn’t even have a Biology O-level, as he himself cheerfully admits. But that’s no odder than his repeated record of wild predictions of vast numbers of deaths, for a variety of diseases from foot-and-mouth to mad cow, which can kindly be described as exaggerated.
And then there’s his complicated private life, which resulted in a pretty clear breach of the miserable restrictions he had helped to impose on the rest of us. As with all such cases, I don’t blame him for breaking the stupid rules. I despise him as a hypocrite for supporting them and then thinking they didn’t apply to him.
Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, said at the time that it was ‘just not possible’ for Ferguson to continue advising the Government. But this was not true. The professor was said to have resigned from the SAGE advisory committee. But did he? Not really.
A current State website lists him as a member of the ‘New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group’ (NERVTAG). Minutes suggest he was only ever away from that for a few weeks. But this is small potatoes, set beside an amazing admission by Ferguson in a recent interview with the semi-official newspaper The Times.
Here, Ferguson spoke of SAGE’s growing admiration for China’s tyrannical attempts to contain Covid.
To begin with they thought – with good reason – that the dishonest and repressive Chinese state was covering up the truth about the Wuhan outbreak. I am sure they still are covering it up.
Modern China is a horrible place, cruel, ruthless and unembarrassed. But for some reason SAGE came to like Peking’s Covid strategy. Ferguson told The Times that ‘as the data accrued it became clear it was an effective policy’.
I’d be interested to know how the SAGE geniuses evaluated data from this police state, which lacks a free press or independent universities. But there.
Even so, they hesitated. As Ferguson says: ‘It’s a Communist one-party state, we said. We couldn’t get away with it in Europe, we thought.’
Aren’t those words ‘we couldn’t get away with it’ interesting? Is this the way in which public servants in a free country think of the normal limits on what they can do? I can only hope not.
But Ferguson and his friends then saw what happened in Italy, where a formerly free country reached for the weapons of repression and mass house arrest. And the rule of fear was so great that they got away with it. So we were next. Or, as Ferguson puts it: ‘And then Italy did it. And we realised we could.’
They could. But they did not have to. They chose the Chinese way. And so they ‘got away with’ beginning a disaster which still continues. There is still no evidence that any of this Chinese-inspired repression has worked.
Every country that has locked down has failed to control the disease and keeps doing the same thing over and over again in the hope of getting a different result.
If lockdown is an effective policy, then the guillotine is a good cure for a headache (except that the guillotine probably does cure a headache).
The shame of it is that the lockdown fanatics did ‘get away with it’, and continue to do so. That is, quite simply, because most of the responsible people in our society did not stand up for wisdom and freedom but allowed themselves to be swept away in a flood of State-sponsored fear, like so many pawns.” [Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday].
Not sure that that is correct. It has been long since I was a practising barrister, and even longer since I had any substantial contact with private international law, or tax law (though I did both academically in the 1980s, and to a limited extent professionally in the succeeding two decades).
Still, it seems to me that countries (states) do not enforce the tax laws of other countries. I cannot see how that law can be enforced or even organized. I hesitate to say that that tweet is simply wrong, because I do not know, and because nothing that this bad excuse for a government might do would surprise me.
A “thought out of season“
We support this or that, oppose this or that, do this or that, and all the while all that we are doing is, in effect, a re-arranging of the deck chairs on the Titanic, in the hackneyed phrase.

Interesting historical note about Southern England
“At the end of the last glaciation, about 10,000 years ago, the area’s ecosystem was characterised by a largely treeless tundra. Pollen studies have shown that this was replaced by a taiga of birch, and then pine, before their replacement in turn (c. 4500 BC) by most of the species of tree encountered today – including, by 4000 BC, the beech, which seems to have been introduced from mainland Europe. This was used as a source of flour, ground from the triangular nutlets contained in the “mast”, or fruit of the beech, after its tannins had been leached out by soaking. Beechmast has also traditionally been fed to pigs.
However, by 4000 BC, as Oliver Rackham has indicated, the dominant tree species was not the beech, but the small-leaved lime, also known as the pry tree. The wildwood was made up of a patchwork of lime-wood areas and hazel-wood areas, interspersed with oak and elm and other species. The pry seems to have become less abundant now because the climate has turned against it, making it difficult for it to grow from seed. Nevertheless, some remnants of ancient lime-wood still remain in south Suffolk.
Ha ha! In fact, tweeter “katmonkey/@braidedriver2” is halfway right. “@rattus2384” is in fact house-husband, and one-time “film critic”, Stephen Applebaum (who also tweets as “@grubstreetsteve”). He has no job or profession, so she is right in principle.
On the wider point, that cartoon has it quite right. For those who, like me, are neither employed nor self-employed, the “lockdowns” or near lockdowns make little difference beyond being a general nuisance.
My own everyday life is scarcely impacted at all by “lockdowns” etc. I oppose these stupid “measures” because they are trashing society, trashing the economy, ruining the very concept of law, and for what? Nothing.
It is obvious, as that cartoon expresses, that the public sector (including much of the NHS) is in fact working far less now but for enhanced or the same pay as pertained pre-“the virus”. The retired, unemployed and disabled are as well off, or better off, than they were “pre-Covid”.
Particularly well-off are MPs, who are getting more pay than before, who in many cases are getting more paid outside (and often fake) “work”, (almost bribes, really) “consultancy”, but are doing almost nothing for it.
Beware of most “scientists” and technical bods, with their often very narrow range of knowledge, and their often very fixed political viewpoint.
The truth is out there, as they say…or to use another well-worn phrase, you can lead a horse to water but cannot make it drink. The problem with the “virus” situation”, including the facemask nonsense, “lockdowns”, the economic consequences etc, is that most people do not want to think, and do not want responsible freedom; they want to be told what to do, when to clap, when to wear a face muzzle, and when to obey “official” directives, even if more or less made up by the local police superintendent.
We have been here before: most British people refused to take the threat of, and consequences of, mass immigration seriously. They preferred to direct their interest to whether the “England” team would win a football, cricket or rugby game on the other side of the world. Look at the results…
I am often critical of (some) farmers and of both their behaviour and attitudes, but it is not an unmixed picture by any means.
It becomes very obvious that “the virus” is being used, being weaponized. Coronavirus or “Covid-19” has killed about 1 out of every 1,400 people in the UK. More accurately, it has killed 1 out of every 1,400 people, who have mostly been over 80 and who mostly had several other serious conditions. Even leaving all that aside, it still means that 1,399 people out of 1,400 in the UK have either not had “Covid-19”, or have had it and survived (usually without ever having noticed that they were infected).
International organizations, such as the World Economic Forum, have openly proclaimed the virus situation as an “opportunity” for a “Great Reset” of world society.
The populations of Europe, USA etc are being taken for a ride.
“Ain’t that the truth?”…not only about Jewish talking head Portes, though. The general point is also true. Fake or supposed “professors” are everywhere now. At one time, “Professor” was an esteemed rank or title. Now? Well, of course every tertiary educational institute, however basic, is now a “university”. “Universities” need or anyway have “professors”. So now we have not only “grade inflation” and “award inflation”, but also “title inflation”. “Professors” are two a penny these days.
That’s not to say that Portes is always wrong about everything; he was right, imo, about the wrongheadedness of most if not all of the policies pursued by George Osborne, 2010-2015.
Ha ha! Lammy must have been a crap barrister! Unintentional admission implied?
As for the “professionalism” no doubt claimed by “Prevent” and its practitioners or employees, I believe that there are no Israeli settlements in Gaza; not even the most determined anti-Zionists claim that! So not terribly impressive that “Prevent” gets even basic and unargued facts wrong…Unless, of course, Channel 4 changed “West Bank” to “Gaza”.
Unintentionally amusing. Could be applied to one of the biggest —and unproven— “conspiracy theories” of all— the “holocaust” “gas chambers”…
Exactly. Jewish lobby puppet Starmer wants even more “lockdown”, shutdown and facemask nonsense. He’s as much of a waste of space as “Boris”…
“NWO” and “ZOG” pretty much covers the waterfront… Add in “the Great Reset” and “Great Replacement” if you like…
Ha ha! As the Irish are said to say “will ya look at that eejit?!“…
Exactly. Also, you will never get to the bottom of this if you try to apply ordinary party or other political ideas to it. This is not about the outer labels of “Conservative” or “Labour” etc, not even about trying to create a Bilderberg/WEF “one world” corporatist tyranny. That is just part of it.
This is about trying to steer the whole of the world in an oligarchic materialist-dictatorship direction. It is tied-in with occult, evil purposes which reach right down into everyday life, even into family life.
Wealth is certainly part of this but there must be more. I am not scientifically trained (just like “Boris” and his Cabinet of clowns), but it is surely at least possible that the hidden agenda of the vaccines is to secretly weaken the human immune system so that, in a year, 3 years, 10 years, a new virus will “suddenly” appear and wipe out most of the population of the world, who (thanks to robotics and AI) are thought “Not Wanted On Voyage”…
Surely Neil Clark did not seriously think that “Labour” drones in Parliament or outside (or the pathetic self-describing “Left” Twitter-twits) would stand up for freedom and civil rights? They cannot even stand up for free speech against the Jew-Zionist element.
Well, admittedly I live in a “Tier 2” area, but over a whole 9-10 months now, not only have I not known anyone personally who has had the “virus”, but I know, from questioning people, that I do not know anyone who knows anyone who has had it. Not died from it, or been to hospital because of it, just had it, or been tested and found be infected. Not one.
I read online about people in London or Birmingham who have supposedly had it. I have no reason to doubt at least some of those claims, but this is not, or not yet, a plague. The big headline today or yesterday about this was “318,000 virus deaths in USA”, which (though many did not die of the virus anyway) is a huge number, but the USA has about 350 million inhabitants, so that is still far less than 1 in every 1,000 inhabitants.
That Stadlen individual is typical of many in the UK today, especially those who make a living being scribblers or TV talking heads. Unlike most of their predecessors, they see nothing wrong in censoring views, either directly or indirectly (the latter by simply encouraging the BBC, Sky, Press etc to disallow dissidents to write or speak).
Stadlen has a First in Classics from Cambridge, albeit gained since award inflation became rampant, yet seems never to have heard of onus probandi incumbit ei qui dicit, non ei qui negat, sometimes put more simply as the rule that “he who asserts must prove“.
In the above case, the positive action taken was to institute “lockdown”. That changed the norm. Therefore it is for those who claim that “lockdowns” work to prove that they do. Not merely assume or assert; prove.
What does this Stadlen care? Wealthy Jewish background, well-paid jobs for BBC and other msm outlets. Looks like he has had a pretty easy life so far. No real concern for the millions of British people suffering (and about to suffer far more). Just crocodile tears tacked on to the end of his virtue-signalling.
All part of the “fear propaganda” brainwashing and conditioning.
“Atrocious” maybe, but scarcely surprising to anyone who has seen on TV Anneliese Dodds, let alone Angela Rayner or Keir Starmer. Not that I have much time for Indian “clever boy” Sunak either.
The contrived “virus” situation has not only exposed how empty of content our society now is, and its institutions especially (as I blogged months ago) but also has led to where we are now, a kind of shadow society. The virus apparently makes many lose their senses of taste and smell, and that is, metaphorically, what has happened socially and politically. Look at the House of Commons.
We have a government of clowns who, under previously normal conditions, would not even have been taken seriously by their own party, let alone the public. They have no credibility, no real ideology or even ideas. They are (as again blogged about many times) led by a part-Jew public entertainer whose jokes are now falling very flat.
The UK has a binary political system, which means, inter alia, that if the official Opposition is, like the Government, just a collective puppet of the Jewish lobby, there is no real opposition to Government policy and behaviour.
The Labour Party simply “opposes” Boris-idiot by saying “we agree with most of what you do, but you should do more of the same, and harder, and should have done it earlier; and borrowed more money to soften the blows...”
Yes, we are always hearing how small the difference is between the DNA of, say, a Northern European and the DNA of a black African. A small fraction of 1%. But it is that small difference that means everything. “In your nothing, I hope to find my everything” [Goethe, Faust]. Some primates, such as chimpanzees, have 96% of the same DNA as a human being, some are even said to have 98% or 99%. Even a banana has 60% of “our” DNA, it seems.
Indeed. The oddest thing is that, in the UK and elsewhere (eg USA), public horror (arguably exaggerated) re. underage sex activity goes together with the actual encouragement of such activity in the West since the 1960s. Hollywood, “British” TV, whatever. The msm generally. There are secret groups, embedded in the political and msm milieux, that are constantly pushing to expand the boundaries of what is acceptable to the public, and to blur clear lines of what is “normal” behaviour. The Old Testament story of Sodom and Gomorrah is being reprised in a complex and sophisicated way. I have little doubt that things will get worse in this respect.
Our society is very sick, in some ways.
This whole “licence fee” (tax) nonsense must end now. The idea that a “licence fee” guarantees BBC independence from the State is a bad joke, looking at how spineless the BBC is in questioning Government policy.
Jewish. Just say it…
I clicked on it to read the synopsis, and was amused to see that only 9 YouTube viewers upvoted the video, but that 1,900 had given it negative votes!
One of the dangers of the present time is that there are so many unworthy and in fact evil people in lucrative, applauded, influential and/or powerful positions that one is tempted to agree with the young Karl Marx (who was an actual Satanist), and who wrote that “everything in existence is worthy of being destroyed” (incidentally, that fact about the young Karl Marx was uncovered by research done in the 1920s by the Apostolic Nuncio to Germany, Pacelli, who later became Pope Pius XII).
Rifkind. Coren. How many are there in the msm?…
Ah…whatever happened to the “brilliant” Boris Johnson, who for 20 years had been puffed as someone who almost had to become Prime Minister? Nothing, because that “brilliant” Boris Johnson never really existed. That Johnson was a construct, firstly by “Boris” himself (the name is in fact itself not real), and by his father, a part-Jew scribbler and careerist; finally, by a collaborative msm.
What is left is the part-Jew, part-Levantine moneygrubber and narcissist, someone who always deflates to nothing when confronted by reality.
“Boris” was sacked as a trainee journalist for making up stories; the same happened when he was working as a journalist. As editor (of the Spectator) he let others do the work while he floated around like a ping-pong ball on the surface, periodically absenting himself for hours or days in order to take cocaine and/or screw Petronella Wyatt and others.
“Boris” also found himself confronted by reality as MP (sacked from Government by his superiors), Mayor of London (failed projects included the useless water-cannon, the abandoned Garden Bridge, buses, the expensive and almost unused Thames cable-car, and “Boris Island); also as Foreign Secretary (abject failure) and now as PM, in which exalted rank he has run the UK into the ground.
“Boris” was always the recipient of unmerited preferment and privilege.
“Boris” is already held in contempt even by his own party. Credible stories emerge that he will go in early-mid 2021. As always, it is “all about him”, how he wants more money from scribbling articles and books, and yet more via the making of after-dinner speeches. He wants to make, and may make, a million a year. He should be shot, or at least compelled to labour for a loaf of rye bread per day, and not rewarded for his crimes (as he probably will be), but this world is short on justice.
In the 1930s, most Brits living in Germany wanted a third way as against both Sovietism (Stalinism) and finance-capitalism (Anglo-Americanism). These days, Brits in Germany (Berlin, mostly) tend to be multikulti zealots, facemask zealots, EU zealots etc. Natural serfs.
but nowhere does Hitchens identify Rifkind as a Jew-Zionist.
Forget the “Left”/”Right”, focus on the realities…
The essence of both National Socialism and social nationalism.
The history of the Roman Catholic Church is intimately bound up with our Western civilization. Some of its achievements have been stellar; some of its sins huge. However, the central fact is that the institution is now nearing the end of its time.
The behaviour of the modern Chinese (as a group, and China as a state) is often ghastly and backward. The treatment of the peoples of Western China is one example. However, the comment about the falling European birth-rate, and so the proportion of Europeans in the world, is simple fact. We are being outbred. We need to take care of that in several ways.
and even more true of what I myself say…
It never was. Part-Jew, part-Levantine, a shallow public entertainer.
I have had enough. Enough of the nonsense. Enough of the “clap for the State” nonsense. Enough of the busybodies and snitches. Enough of the facemask nonsense. Enough of the (not fully observed anyway) “social distancing” and “Rule of Six” nonsense. Enough of a nonsense government and a part-Jew, part-Levantine “Prime Minister” who has no idea how to properly fulfil his role.
I disagree anyway with the “lockdown(s)”, with the shutting down of the economy and society, and one can see that countries such as Sweden have everything working, and a lower death rate (per 1,000) than the UK.
In the end, our society has to bite the bullet. It seems that the young are scarcely affected, and that even the middle-aged are only somewhat affected. In addition, English and other real British (i.e. white) people are affected less than non-white (including Jews).
I myself am in at least one vulnerable group, at age 64, but say that the time has come to junk all the nonsense of the past 8+ months and revive the society and economy.
It is time to say “Enough!” and open everything up. Let the chips fall where they may.
Took a look at the statistics for 2020. So far, tens of thousands of hits from nearly 10,000 individuals. With four full months to go until the end of the year, the number of hits already exceeds the figure for 2019 by about 7%, but the best aspect is that the number of individuals has jumped by 25%. It will be interesting to see the final figures for this year.
The number of “likes” from other WordPress users is also up, but few are ever given (on anyone’s blog) anyway. I had to laugh at the number (as of today) though: 88! True… Is it synchronicity?
Most readers of blogs do not belong to the platform, whether WordPress or other, so the number of “likes” means little. Most blogs get only a few in any given month. Likewise with comments. WordPress blogs are not like social media accounts such as Twitter.
Why does one bother? It is a way of influencing society, even if in a very small way; on the other hand, “one human soul is a big audience“, which I always think was said either by St. Thomas Aquinas or St. Dominic, or maybe even St. Augustine of Hippo, but in fact I have never been able to find the citation.
Who knows who might read my blog and be influenced by it? The next young Alexander? Perhaps a young reader who, after I leave this Earth in my present incarnation, will create the new civilization which I myself, at least so far, have been unable to bring to life and power.
A few “thoughts out of season”
I am 64 years of age in a few days’ time, though I do not —usually!— feel it. Two years until I am 66, in 2022. 2022 can be expressed as a 6 (2+0+2+2), and (by one system of numerology) the number of my name (Ian Robert Millard) is 666, though I should add that I am scarcely a —let alone the—“Beast”!
Like “the stars in their courses“, I “fight on the side of the just” (an ancient Chinese saying).
2022 is the next world-historic year. The last, 33 years before 2022, was 1989, the key year in the collapse of socialism across the world. Socialism did not collapse in one year alone, of course. It had been slowly dying for decades, indeed since the previous year in that 33-year cycle, meaning 1956 (also the year of my own birth).
When I say “socialism” here, I refer to all post-1945 varieties, from the kind of social democratic idea seen in postwar UK, Sweden, New Zealand etc through to the extreme versions seen in the Soviet Union, China, Albania etc. True, China still has and is ruled by the Communist Party, but that party rules over a society completely capitalist. Yes, there are a few unimportant remnants of ruined socialism here and there: Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela (which only became notionally socialist in the 1990s, though there were socialistic elements in Venezuelan society in the 1950s and 1960s). The point is that these countries are exceptions, and poverty-stricken exceptions. The mainstream of the world has moved on from old-style socialism.
After 1989, the Soviet Union ceased to exist as a socialist state, though the Soviet Union continued in name until 1991.
After 1989 and the —superficially— unsuccessful Tiananmen Square protest, “socialism” became a figleaf covering only, just like “aristocracy” has been for a long time in UK society. Deng Xiaoping had said that no-one cared what colour was a cat, so long as it catches mice. That was why socialism had to be superseded, because as an economic model it “does not work”.
In the UK, the social democratic idea was fully espoused after the Second World War, certainly from 1956, by all three “main parties” (the two real main parties —Conservative and Labour— and the joke Liberal Party). That consensus (“democratic socialist” Labour, in existence in essence since the late 19thC, and “One Nation” Conservatism, also deriving originally from the late 19thC and Disraeli) broke down in the 1980s.
In the 1990s, the “Conservatives” travelled to a more finance-capitalist, anti-Welfare State position. “Labour” dropped “Clause 4” (which notionally committed the party to widespread nationalization —socialization— of the economy). Within a few years, after 1997, Labour had become completely “cosmopolitan finance-capitalist” under Tony Blair and the Jew Mandelson, who declared that he was “intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich“.
While the Jew Mandelson held secret meetings with Rothschilds and “Russian” Jew oligarchs in Corfu villas and elsewhere, Attlee and Bevan rotated in their graves, and the remaining “socialist” element in Labour seethed, led by the dissident MP, Jeremy Corbyn.
Despite much talk, the “socialist” Labour element under Corbyn and, before that, Ed Miliband, was unable to struggle successfully against the Zeitgeist. The General Elections of 2015, 2017 and 2019 proved that old-style socialism is dead. That despite public disquiet at the weakening and partial dismantling of the “Welfare State”, mainly under the Conservative Party governments since 2010.
In fact, that weakening of the UK “Welfare State”, though intensified after 2010, had started long before, and was in evidence during the Blair-Brown years 1997-2010. For example, the disgraceful ATOS organization was given its first contracts not by the Conservative Party governments (2010, 2015, 2017 and 2019), but by the Labour governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown (1997, 2001, 2005, 2007): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atos#Atos_Healthcare.
People in the UK tend to think that policy is made by individual governments, when in fact there has always been a “deep state” element underneath, carried on in secret, or in semi-secrecy. The influence of, inter alia, freemasonry, Common Purpose, the Jew-Zionist element, the Bilderberg element etc are all part of that. Look at Welfare State policy since, say, 1997. There have been differences between and within parties, but the main themes continued beneath the surface chatter.
As we move to the next significant year, 2022, we see that neither old-style socialism/social democracy nor finance-capitalism satisfies the needs of the people. A new movement is required, both in the sense of a “party” or political organization, and in the sense of a movement in and of society.”
“For the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].
Time moves on
I found this graphic from 2018, not seen for quite a while. It was produced by the Jew-Zionist (and misnamed) “Hope Not Hate” crowd. It shows those who met (in my case, once, at a clifftop cafe, because someone thought reliable had asked me) a young Swede whose real name is said to be Patrik Hermansson, and who posed in 2017 as a Swedish student called Erik Hellberg. Personally, I think that “The Rat” suits him better, but that’s just me…
It will be noted that I was placed, as if a denizen of a contemporary “Inferno“, in the circle of the “holocaust” “deniers” [bottom right of the graphic].
I tend to be rather anti-social both in the ordinary meaning and politically. I do not mix much, in fact scarcely at all. For all that, I can see that political life has moved on in the intervening <2 years.
Some people have become more prominent (Alison Chabloz for one), others have retreated from the limelight: Jez Turner, Stead Steadman, Colin Robertson (“Millennial Woes”) etc. The London Forum is inactive. The “alt-Right” in the USA (as far as I can tell —I do not keep up with all that in detail) has developed a sharper edge, it seems.
The graphic does not of course purport to be a comprehensive map of the “nationalist” side of UK/US politics. As for the work of “The Rat”, he was wasting his time. His paymasters at “Hope Not Hate” eventually produced a film, but it sank like a stone. I think (not sure) that it did get a screening on Channel 4 or Channel 5 around midnight one evening, and the same in Belgium and Sweden. I myself cannot recall seeing it.
The most interesting aspect of that graphic is what is not there: “lone wolves” in the UK and elsewhere, German rural-sanctuary nationalists and national socialists, those setting up a mini-ethnostate in the Pacific North West of the USA etc.
In fact, the behaviour of the pseudo-socialists and “antifa” idiots really highlights the sheer bankruptcy of their socio-political position or stance. They beg to be masked, muzzled, controlled, restricted by the State. They have nothing at all to offer in terms of policy or a way forward for society.
You see the same phenomena in the UK, the “anti-racist” and “antifa” types whose life revolves around trolling people on Twitter, saying negative things about those they deem “fascist” or “neo-Nazi” etc. They know nothing, have no real ideology, and put forward no programme of their own. Politically irrelevant.
…and look [below] at these idiots, sitting talking while wearing facemask muzzles! Complete idiots. This really is a ******* farce, but most people are too polite or too compliant or too brainwashed to say anything!
Listened to BBC Radio 4 Profile about Dido Harding: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dido_Harding. Sounds like she is the sort of person who gets into highly paid positions (eg at Talk Talk, where she was paid millions for failure) because of whom she knows rather than what she knows (or does). A modified and female example of the Peter Principle [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_principle], except that she has been appointed to her present position having serially failed in others. Pathetic country, pathetic government.
What a load sheeple on here. You are being conned into wearing a face mask. Didn't you see the demo in Berlin.
The fat man in his muzzle is [update: tweet gone] typical of the aggressive and/or mentally-disturbed facemask zealots who have been emboldened by the ludicrous fake “law” being misused by Boris-idiot, little Matt Hancock, Cressida Dick etc.
Below, “antifa” gassed! I’m lovin’ it (even though I think that Trump is completely unfit for public office)!
Hitchens is right as far as he goes, but fails, once again, to point out that Boris-idiot’s most significant characteristics come not from his few years at Eton (or Oxford) but from the fact that he is part-Jew, part-Turk/Levantine, born in New York City, brought up as child in Washington DC, New York and in Brussels. He is at least half-foreign, in short. Of course “Boris” is not really English in attitude, because he is not really English!
It's not 'paying for the virus'. It's paying for the lockdown policies that many of us never wanted, agreed to, or believed were necessary.
Most NHS doctors are saying nothing because, quite simply, just as Aneurin Bevan said that he had overcome the opposition of the BMA and doctors to the establishment of the NHS by “stuffing their mouths with gold” (relatively high salaries and the chance to do private work on the side etc), Boris-idiot and little Matt Hancock have stuffed the mouth of today’s NHS doctors with more gold, via immediate 4.5% pay rises for less work done…
Hitchens may or may not be aware of it, but Americans have always treated their prisoners, especially political prisoners and/or prisoners of war, very badly. Those suspected of being involved in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln were kept muzzled and with hoods over their heads for months in some cases.
Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, who was briefly touted as a future UK Prime Minister when he started throwing money around to ameliorate the effects of his own government’s policies, established the “eat out to help out” programme. 50% off, up to £10 a head, I believe. Well, I just heard anecdotal evidence:
A lady I know went to a seaside cafe/restaurant one morning recently. Her purchase was modest, a single cup of coffee. When she went to pay (£2.20), she was told that she only had to pay £1.10 because of that scheme. A woman also waiting to pay then chimed in to the effect that her family now dined out three times a week because it made eating out almost as cheap as eating in.
Well, that lady whose family use restaurants three times a week and get a discount for it may enjoy the scheme, but the whole thing is being paid for by the public as a whole; by the poor too, who may not pay much in income tax but who certainly pay VAT and, if employed, National Insurance.
Why should the people as a whole pay to subsidize the cafe visits and restaurant excursions of the rich, the affluent and the comfortably-off? Like so many government policies now, there is just no logic and no justice behind it.
A very striking piece of architecture, quite exciting, and I do not hate it as much as tweeter “Western Traditionalist”, but I hear what he (or she) says. It is a symptom of cultural decadence, for sure.
As for the “architecture” below, that really is just disgusting, and should be demolished or destroyed.
Presumably a representation of some organ of the human body (?), or maybe some sea-creature, plonked down in the midst of what seems to be a town in Southern Germany:
It is reported that, yesterday, 3 people died, in the whole of the UK, from or at least with Coronavirus. Three people. Out of nearly 70 million in the country. Out of several thousand being tested every day now as having Coronavirus.
It follows that there now is no substantial public health threat in the UK from Coronavirus; what does exist is panic and unwarranted fear, being stoked up deliberately by the UK government and its advisers.
The facemask nonsense has nothing to do with public health. It is as divorced from reality as the Dutch Tulip Craze of the 17th Century.
The same is true of the quarantine nonsense, which has already led to a rash of stories about how ingenious Brits have made it back to our sceptred shores with minutes to spare before they would have had to “self-isolate” (quaere: does the government really believe that people are going to “self-isolate”? It’s another “fantasy law” from Boris-idiot).
As to those just beating the quarantine deadline, we have had, in the msm today, bicycling families just breasting the tape with minutes to spare, and an octet which, having performed in a monastery in Normandy, hired a French fishing boat to get back to Newhaven in time. Stylish. In all, a Dunkirk-lite reprise. As Marx said, “first time tragedy, second time farce”…(and cf. Churchill/Boris-idiot…).
A quarantine (even an ineffective “self-isolation” one) might have had some logic behind it in March or April, but not now. Like the facemask nonsense, it is completely pointless.
Another point worth noting is that the countries now seeing upsurges in “the virus” are the very ones stupid enough to have imposed severe “lockdowns”: Spain, Italy, France. Hello? Is anyone listening?
This is what Britain now is, a place where people can be questioned by the police, not for anything truly criminal, but for posting about matters online, even posts which the police themselves accept, and in advance of interview, are not criminal! This is what the police now are— socio-politicized, biased, and riddled with Common Purpose drones at a high level.
Note that that letter was from the Nottinghamshire Police, a force which has one of the least-impressive records in dealing with real crime; the same is true of Derbyshire Police, who have been snooping on and persecuting the satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz for years.
Snowden was obviously not an agent of Russian Intelligence at the start, meaning at the time of his flight from Hawaii. The Russians would have extracted him much more efficiently if he had been an agent. Instead, he went to Hong Kong and messed around there for days, risking capture and/or extradition.
Still, interesting that Trump is considering the possibility of a pardon. Unless, of course, the news is just bait, to interest Snowden in returning to the USA.
Very strange: a woman who, in effect, “inherited” her seat from her husband (who was recently convicted of some pretty silly sex crimes). A travesty.
As I have written previously on this blog, I repost quite a few Peter Hitchens tweets, not because I am a “supporter” or “fan” of Hitchens, but because he is quite often correct. That especially applies to his views about the “virus” panic and the absurd (and either mistaken or malicious) governmental over-reaction to it.
Of course, Hitchens is right to say that discontent should grow and be expressed now that the State is seriously restricting freedoms such as movement, association, personal clothing, as well as free speech; and the fact is that Parliament now scarcely exists except as a rubber stamp. However, if I were to state my hopes for what might happen, I should no doubt have evil and malicious snoopers reporting me to the “authorities” in what has become a toytown police state. So I stay silent, or at least superficially silent.
Free speech on historical topics again under attack by Jews
We see repeatedly that, in the UK, voters vote only for parties, not for individuals. One example was the ignominious defeat of Simon Danczuk in Rochdale in 2017. His first election, in 2010, resulted in a vote-share of about 36%. His second election, in 2015, gave him a vote-share of about 46%. Both times under Labour label. After Danczuk had been deselected by Labour, he tried to get elected as Independent in 2017. Result? 1.8% (883 votes). Fifth place (out of six). The new Labour candidate won, with 58% of the vote.
Another example. Anne Milton was Conservative Party MP for Guildford from 2005. She also won the elections of 2010, 2015 and 2017, at the last of which her vote-share was nearly 55%.
An important distinction from the Danczuk case was there had been no scandal attaching to Anne Milton; she was deselected (the whip taken away by Boris Johnson) purely because of her opposition to “no-deal Brexit” and she was given the chance to stand again as a Conservative Party candidate at Guildford if she dropped her opposition. She refused and stood as Independent.
Anne Milton’s principled stance availed her naught; neither did her 14 years as MP for Guildford, nor her uninvolvement in any expenses scandal (or any other scandal). She got only 7.4% (over 4,000 votes, a 4th place out of 5) at the 2019 General Election. The new Conservative Party candidate won, with about 45%.
While Anne Milton’s defeat in 2019 was more honourable than that of Danczuk, the result, in bottom-line terms, was similar, a bad defeat. Her only consolation: she retained her deposit.
The “main parties” (and that really means just Labour and Conservative) still have a complete stranglehold because the sleepy voters are still voting mainly for a label.
Fear of “the virus”
Look at the tweet below (the reply by “Stalker”):
This is a very good example of the pathology, not of “the virus” itself, but of the fear of it. A teacher in a State secondary school resigns because he fears that he might contract “the virus” by being in the same building or room as children or young persons. Well, it is possible, of course, though unlikely; any such school students infected would probably themselves not show any symptoms and be in no danger.
As for the teacher, yes, he might pick it up from those pupils, though it is probably a thousand to one chance. If the teacher were unlucky and were infected, his chance of needing any medical intervention would be small, hundreds to one. His chance of being seriously affected would be tiny. His chance of dying from “the virus” would be even smaller. His age is not mentioned, but probably under 60, probably under 50. His fear is misplaced.
Thus we see the way in which the fear whipped up by the government of clowns and its ludicrous “SAGE” advisers has led many rather unthinking people to make panicked decisions.
In any case, the alternative is simply to have no schools open until an effective vaccine is found and deployed, which might be months, years, or never. I have little respect for the UK educational system as it is, but the result of, in effect, having no education at all given to the young, would be worse (probably).
“The good folk are unaware when the Devil sits on their shoulder…” [Goethe, Faust]
“Which country are you?”
I tried a quiz I saw online: “which [existing] government most closely matches your political views?” and got “Saudi Arabia”! Ha ha! I think that their site needs a little bit of a tweak or two! https://www.quotev.com/quiz/8888999/t
Tom Watson and Keir Starmer
Well, wouldn’t you know it? Tom Watson (Jewish lobby mouthpiece), is going to get a peerage after all, proposed by Keir Starmer (Jewish lobby mouthpiece). How utterly disgusting.
A few more tweets seen
Personally, I prefer to keep out of this “Labour Party antisemitism” stuff, not because I am afraid of being sued (least of all by the extreme Jewish lobby solicitor of choice, Mark Lewis) but because I am not a Labour supporter or member, and am well-known for being an independent anti-Zionist, overall, and a social nationalist.
I am confident that I can defend myself, should it be necessary, against any charge of defamation by anyone, but I have a copper-bottomed armour anyway, inasmuch as I have no money or real property now, so anyone who sues me will lose out (hugely, I would make sure of that) even if (unlikely) they were to win in court. Checkmate.
Ha ha! I typed, in error, “unkikely” instead of “unlikely“. I suppose that a psychologist could make something of that!
If anyone wants to see what I have written about that self-promoting fake, Mark Lewis, please use the search function on my blog. There are a number of what I think are interesting articles (certainly many thousands of people have seen them). They are quite hard-hitting (though accurate) and date from late 2018 and early 2019 .
Lewis had the chance to sue me in 2018 or 2019 if he thought that I was libelling him. He was well aware of my blog posts. He never did sue, he never threatened to sue. My impecuniosity may have been part of the reason, but I maintain that another reason was because my blog tells the truth. It is not a pack of lies but true right the way through.
