More interesting to me than the content of the above (not uninteresting though it is) is the fact that Katie Hopkins has been allowed back onto Twitter.

I also am minded to return to Twitter, and with “blue tick”, mainly in order to promote my blog, but also in order to mock (simply by being back on Twitter) the Jew-Zionist pack that had me expelled in 2018; also, to irritate the self-promoting would-be “celebrities” etc who managed to get those blue ticks previously.

I would not go quite as far as that, in that I am unsure as to whether “Jack Monroe” had fraudulent intent right from the start. I concede, though, that her evident lack of interest in paying back monies taken (or even engaging with former donors) does give a rather poor impression, at the very least.

See also: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.

I have held similar views, and have expressed them, for some 40+ years.

I have come to the conclusion that “Jack Monroe”, aka “Bootstrap Cook”, is about 1% positive for society, and 99% negative…

The more I have learned about her, her behaviour, and her whole contrived sales pitch, the less I have been inclined to be favourable to her and it.

Many people really want to “believe”, though, and prefer to shut their eyes to the facts. As of today, and despite months of increasing online and even msm disquiet around the “Jack Monroe” “brand”, 665 mugs are still remitting to her up to £10 a month, every month, via the website Patreon.

I agree with her on those particular points (but not on many others), though I struggle to accept that a self-describing “journalist” seems to be only semi-literate.

I may be mistaken, but I think that I read some time ago that she was a student at Durham University. Literacy seems to be dying out in the UK, as witness the product of all the “Justins” and “Emilys” scribbling for the online Daily Mail and other news outlets.

Re. the behaviour of half-Jew Raab, people should also be asking the question as to whether Raab behaves like that because he is not up to the job. It is a frequently-seen phenomenon in people who want the status of a powerful job but who are not really up to doing it.

Williamson’s rise to power and influence (he is probably washed-up now) was indeed puzzling, a fact that I noted in my 2019 assessment of him: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/02/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-gavin-williamson-story/.

Ukraine

As I predicted, Russia will now run an “oblique war” strategy, just as the Americans have done in the past in some parts of the world. In between the first Gulf War and the second, the actual invasion of Iraq, the Americans, via both sanctions and other measures, followed by missile attacks, did what one analyst called “breaking every bone in Iraq’s body without killing it“. That meant degrading and eventually destroying the electrical power infrastructure and, inter alia, the water and sewerage systems (the latter, in Baghdad and elsewhere, relied on electricity, not gravity).

Ukraine was already a “failed state”, more or less, before this war. Now it is a facade, propped up by Western aid, arms, ammunition and military training help. Economically, it is on its knees. Now, its electricity generation and distribution systems are also being reduced.

I would not write off Russia in this war.

World population

https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

News on the car radio this morning: there are now over 8 BILLION humans on Earth. In 1960, the figure was 3 billion. In other words, the world population is now not far from triple what it was only 62 years ago.

The detail is important, though. The rate of increase has slowed almost to a halt. Also, most of the population of the world is in a small number of countries: China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and a few others; and most of the increase in population is also in those and a few other countries.

The population of the USA has grown greatly in the past 60 years, but is now growing by only 0.1% annually. The same is true of many advanced countries. Some are not growing at all, others are growing only because of non-white immigration, but their core ethnic group is declining. Russia. Germany. UK. France.

There is now another factor: see https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/nov/15/humans-could-face-reproductive-crisis-as-sperm-count-declines-study-finds.

I have previously mooted the idea that the number of human or humanoid souls rushing into incarnation (so as to experience the type of civilization we have presently while it still exists) has perhaps, arguably, come to a halt. That is, if you like, a “spiritual” explanation for the material effects noted in that newspaper report.

For me, the world must have a smaller population, perhaps 10% of what now exists, perhaps even smaller. It is equally important that that population be mainly white Northern European. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/.

It is possible to lay the foundation, or the foundation of a foundation, for a later much higher level of evolution, a “super-race” if you like.

You carry in your blood the holy inheritance of your
fathers and forefathers. You do not know those who
have vanished in endless ranks into the darkness of the
past. But they all live in you and walk in your blood upon
the earth that consumed them in battle and toil and in
which their bodies have long decayed.

Your blood is therefore something holy. In it your parents gave you not only a body, but your nature. To deny your blood is to deny yourself. No one can
change it. But each decides to grow the good that one has
inherited and suppress the bad. Each is also given will
and courage.

You do not have only the right, but also the duty to pass
your blood on to your children, for you are a member of
the chain of generations that reaches from the past into
eternity, and this link of the chain that you represent
must do its part so that the chain is never broken.

But if your blood has traits that will make your children
unhappy and burdens to the state, then you have the
heroic duty to be the last. The blood is the carrier of life. You carry in it the secret of creation itself. Your blood is holy, for in it God’s will
lives.”

Either this incident was accidental, or the explosions are a false flag by the Zelensky regime, created to drag NATO into war with Russia. Either way, it was plainly not a deliberate attack on Poland, and thus should not trigger Article 5 of the NATO treaty.

In any case, now that states such as Poland, the Baltic states etc belong to NATO (which should never have happened), Article 5 should be abrogated. It is now nothing less than a dangerous trigger mechanism which may put all of Europe (and quite possible both the USA and Russia as well) to sword and flame.

This situation has been caused, at root, by the reckless NATO support for the Kiev regime. This is not our fight, and never has been.

Overall comment on recent political events and on the new Government

For me, one of the major aspects, looking at both the Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak Cabinets is the sheer mediocrity, at best, of the Cabinet ministers appointed by both Truss and Sunak (several appointed by the former have now been reappointed to various offices by the latter).

Here we have a country of 60-70 million inhabitants, a country with a long and distinguished history, and which has produced more for the world, arguably, than most if not all others [including, among hundreds of examples, the Industrial Revolution, trains, hovercraft, jet aircraft, radar, modern sanitation etc], and the best our political system can throw up (so to speak) is this pack of idiots? In the old Private Eye caricature of the newspaper editor Bill Deedes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Deedes], “shome mishtake, shurely?“.

Brexit was badly mishandled. How to save it? First thing is to stop arms, ammunition, and money going from the pockets of British taxpayers to the dictatorial regime of the Jew Zelensky in Kiev.

Second necessary thing is for Britain to withdraw trade sanctions against Russia, restore full trade links and, also very important, cultural links. This will benefit Britain hugely, especially now that the EU, USA, and other states have pledged to intensify trade sanctions. An open field for British commerce, with little competition.

Third thing would be to distance the UK from NATO.

In return, I have no doubt that Russia would supply gas at cost, or even below cost, to the UK; a direct pipeline could be constructed. Britain would thereby stave off both energy shortages and high prices.

The above would not, of itself, solve the problems in dealing with the EU single market, but would mitigate them.

I have discussed previously on the blog that “Jimmy Carr Destroys Art” show, created by Jews at Channel 4, and featuring grinning little monkey and tax evader/avoider Jimmy Carr. Don’t want to waste any time on the bastard today.

Incidentally, though, perhaps I should add that I despise the concept and actuality of Jimmy Carr Destroys Art for wider reasons than simply because one of the works of art destroyed was by Adolf Hitler.

I would not, for example, want to destroy Jewish art, such as the works of Chagall, or even the degenerate contemporary “art” of moneygrubbing “artists” such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, who are not Jewish themselves, but their work heavily promoted by the wealthy and well-connected Jew, Charles Saatchi: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Saatchi.

Actually, the German Reich did not, as a rule, destroy what it considered “degenerate” and/or Jewish art; it actually held exhibitions of it, as educative for the people.

Exactly. The Jews at Channel 4 who are behind Jimmy Carr Destroys Art, and the “woke”/”antifa”/Jews/etc who watch it and like it, just want to go “ha ha! That’s one relic of ‘Nazism’ gone!“. It panders to a love of destructiveness, especially on the part of the Jew-Zionist element.

Even those who, like me, commend the basic principle behind National Socialism, would not (I certainly would not) say that Hitler’s youthful paintings are “great art”. They are mostly no more than competent. There is no argument for destroying them, however.

As for Eric Gill, a perverse person, but his art is interesting and also significant for its role in its time period. You could say much the same of many great artists of the recent and further past.

In the end, there will be only one way to eliminate the evil “woke”/”antifa” etc from society.

Justice?

I applaud mercy on the part of sentencing judges, in principle, but not when justice itself is cast aside.

Look at that non-sentence, very typical of today.

It sometimes “seems” that, unless the case is one of murder or terrorism, or tweeting/blogging a few criticisms of the Jewish influence in the UK (eg in the cases of Alison Chabloz or Jez Turner), it is all but impossible to get imprisoned in the UK, no matter what you do to other people.

Reminds me of times past, about 30 years ago.

When I was living intermittently in New Jersey in the early 1990s, I was invited to lunch by American friends of someone I knew at the Bar in London. The three Americans were all partners of a small law firm specializing in shipping and insurance.

When I arrived at their office in downtown Manhattan, near Wall Street, a small group was just leaving, including a bearded Jew wearing a skullcap.

The American lawyers explained that that group had been there in connection with a matter involving insurance, in which matter the people I was visiting were on the other side. The bearded one was said to be a rabbi, who owned commercial property in Brooklyn. I was surprised. I was unaware that Jew rabbis were allowed to own, or did own, business enterprises.

My American hosts laughed and told me that the rabbi was suspected of having had the building in question torched for the insurance. “We call it Jewish lightning!“, they explained.

My religious education was enriched further by another encounter at that office: I met another lawyer who came in and had a cross on his forehead, marked out in ash. I asked what that was, and was told that it was to do with Lent in the Eastern Orthodox church, the lawyer concerned being a Lebanese Christian [https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/article/meaning-cross-ashes-ash-wednesday]. New York City, the melting pot…

I had never seen that (the marking of the forehead), nor even heard of it, previously.

A memorable day also for the interesting lunch that followed, held at an old New York club (I think not now in existence, though), called the New York Drug and Chemical Club, and founded by the leaders of those industries a century or more before, but now situate 50 or more floors up in a skyscraper. Interesting to eat clams and drink Bloody Mary cocktails as the odd helicopter slid by the window (silently), en route to the East River Heliport. A New York experience not had by most visitors to the city.

A year or two later, I hosted the same Americans when they came to London on business. We went to the unique (and now also closed down) Luba’s Bistro at Yeoman’s Row, Knightsbridge, one of my regular haunts back then.

Bring your own wine, beer, or vodka, and enjoy their unchanging 1950s menu, an eclectic mix of Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Georgian, and a bit of French, all consumed in a crowded restaurant where you would be seated near (and I do mean near) the next table of diners, who might be anything from a Church of England canon (accompanied by young blonde wife) who was “an honorary archimandrite of the Eastern Orthodox Church” (overheard by my then girlfriend), to Soviet types who might or might not have been spies of some sort.

Happy days (I suppose).

Of all the ways governments have wasted money in the past, the “panicdemic” nonsense, and particularly the “Test and Trace” nonsense was the most egregious; almost unbelievable.

As previously blogged, if the Triple Lock is abandoned, then the 60+ age group population of voters will probably abandon the Conservative Party en bloc.

Gavin Williamson

Unbelievably, Gavin Williamson, one of the most stupid MPs of the lot, is back in government, this time as “Minister without Portfolio”. I think that he is a freemason, perhaps of some rank. Nothing else explains why he is even an MP.

A reminder that “Labour” has become as much of a bad joke as the fake “Conservatives”.

As to Eddie Izzard, that creature apparently intends to seek selection as a candidate at the next general election, perhaps for a seat in Sheffield. His prominence as entertainer will probably ensure an easy victory.

If someone, not even from the 1960s or 1970s, but as recently as the 1990s, were suddenly to land in the Britain of 2022, he or she (not “he/she” or “they“) would find much of this country pretty mad, as well as very much in decline in most ways.

The National Trust, like the RNLI and most big charities and institutions, is now riddled with traitors of all sorts in high positions.

Mark Twain had it first and best: “there are lies, damned lies, and statistics“…

Someone can be “competent” to “run the economy”, and increase GDP etc, but if the benefits of that strong economy go almost entirely to the richest 20%, 10%, 5%, 1% (and in the UK it is mainly the 1%), then who can blame the other (as it might be) 99% of the population for saying “screw it! I don’t care!“(?).

I am reminded of the middle-aged man before the Brexit Referendum who was asked by a reporter whether he would change his Leave stance if he were convinced that Brexit would damage the economy. His answer? “I don’t really care…it’s only me and the dog“…

Nearly” a failed state?! Absolutely a failed state. It has been for most if not all of its 31-year history.

Thought for the day

Brexit was, in itself, not wrong, not a mistake, but it has been badly-handled from the start, in many cases by ministers determined to mess it up.

Others, such as “Boris”-idiot and Liz Truss, were pro-EU “Remain” supporters until they realized that their political ambitions could be boosted by adherence to a pro-Brexit position.

What could have made Brexit a success? What was and still is the missing piece of the jigsaw? This: the UK gets closer to Russia, distances itself from NATO and US control (in the manner that France has done for the past half century and more), and forms a serious trading relationship with Russia and a cultural bond with the Russian people. Russia, in turn, supplies us with very cheap or even free gas from Siberia, delivered via a new pipeline direct to the UK, as well as a large market in Russia for British goods and services.

Corbyn could have done no less damage, true, but he was/is a pretty simple and uneducated person, whose political ideas are almost all simplistic or cartoon versions of, eg, 1930s Popular Front-ism. “Cable Street!“, “No Pasaran!” etc.

The one good thing about Corbyn was that he was or is (“was” is more accurate, speaking in terms of his non-existent actual present influence) somewhat anti the Jewish lobby, though not enough.

Corbyn had no real ideas to evolve the UK to a higher and better level.

I rarely agree with anything said by Cleverly, but here is one exception. All such vandals posing as protesters should get a good kicking on the spot before being arrested, charged, convicted and properly punished.

I do not usually watch stuff like this, but I have to admit that, overall, not bad.

Well, another first. I actually find myself in agreement with Israel-lobby MP, Robert Halfon.

Having said that, Halfon seems to think that only now are people coming up to him in the street saying that they are “frightened” by the Government. What about the last 12 years (in fact 15 years, under “Labour” too) of people, especially the unemployed, sick and disabled, being bullied and badly-treated by the Duncan Smith/Jew Freud/Esther McVey/Therese Coffey regime of callousness and cruelty?

The trouble is that, like the “eco-vandals” of Just Stop Oil and Extinction Rebellion, the MPs and ministers responsible think that they can get away with their crimes, and do so smirking openly. A few, over the last several years, have discovered that they cannot get away with their evil, but most —so far— have.

Yes. Crush them.

It would be a good start if any members of the public who see those sub-terrorists doing anything such as vandalizing artworks or blocking ambulances etc, were to kick them silly.

They rely on people doing nothing, or at least treating them with kid gloves. That applies especially, in fact, to the older and greyer “protestors”. You can see it in their self-satisfied smirks. They travel to London from Gloucestershire, Dorset etc, where they live comfortably on private and State pensions, and invested funds, sitting in houses bought outright, or paid off, or inherited (admittedly, a generalization). Do them.

She is not wrong.

Look at that tweeter “@ThelifeofRon”: “Former senior police officer, now with@resilience247. Director Broad Reach Consulting (Devon) CBRN, resilience, safeguarding, security and Policing. And cats.

Common Purpose? Quite possibly. The police are now riddled with officers holding such attitudes, as from time to time becomes apparent when some politically-contentious incident makes the news, eg the vandalizing of the Colston statue at Bristol.

Whatever the many defaults of the Conservative Party, if Labour take over what is left of the government of this country, you can see that money would be funnelled to the police to become even more of a poundland KGB. Starmer and that thick “ho” Angela Rayner both went down on one knee in sign of fealty to the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense; Starmer is also totally in the Jew-Zionist lobby pocket.

A decent society should not need foodbanks. In the UK, they scarcely existed before 2010 when the part-Jews, David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne, managed to trick their way into government.

Liz Truss wanted to scrap State Pension and Child Benefit

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/sep/30/early-liz-truss-comments-on-scrapping-benefits-stoke-fears-of-further-cuts

It has emerged that the young Liz Truss, aged 20 in 1995, wanted to actually get rid of, inter alia, the State Pension.

All very well for her gophers to say that her views have matured since then, but who would trust this bitch, really?

It is only the pensioner or “grey” vote that has kept the so-called “Conservative” Party in power for the past 12 years. Now, it seems that Liz Truss, woolly-head Kwarteng and the rest of the present simply ridiculous Cabinet are about to throw pensioners under a bus. However, those over-65s have a sting in their tail. Their votes may not go to Labour (or anywhere else) but even mass abstention would finish the Conservative Party.

The latest opinion polls put the Conservatives on about 20%, with Labour well over 50%.

Of course, Labour is a poor choice, but for most voters, an election in the UK is a choice of evils. The Conservatives have just got to the point where not only have they lost all credibility, but where very many people hate them and in fact fear them. Far more than in 2010.

If the “grey vote” abandons the Conservative Party, there is actually no other demographic of any real size that can keep the party in more than dormant existence. It simply does not deserve to exist any more.

If there were a credible social-national party, it could rise up as far and as fast as did the NSDAP in the 1929-1932 period.

What amazes me about Liz Truss is that she must know that, at best, only a fifth of the people support her, and that about 80% if not 90% of the people are going to start hurting badly pretty soon, yet she seems to believe that she has some kind of entitlement to carry on with her package of wrecking policies, come what may, and without even the rough mandate of a general election behind her.

I am old enough to remember the Poll Tax riots of 1990 (though I saw them at a distance, on TV news in the United States). The population is now generally more quiescent (as witness the “panicdemic” compliance) but this might just be bigger than the Poll Tax, if people start hurting enough.

Liz Truss might have to “double and triple the guard”, before someone makes a —shall we say?— very personal and very effective “protest”.

Why? Because the Jew-Zionist element always tries to destroy freedom of expression, particularly for non-Jews. Wake up.

Jesus H. Christ!

Still, if we had any real social-national party or movement, an economic shock like that might be a gamechanger politically, just as the 1929 Wall Street Crash and the consequent/subsequent Great Depression was for Hitler and the NSDAP.

The NHS 111 service is near-to-useless.

I favour a free-at-point-of-use NHS service, but only for British people, not for “health tourists” and all manner of riff-raff. How such a service can be funded is an open question. How such a service can be staffed is another question. The aim should be for the UK to train its own doctors and nurses, for one thing, and they should be forced to work in the NHS, and not allowed to emigrate to the white Commonwealth or elsewhere, for several years (in the case of doctors, perhaps 10 years).

Back in the 1970s, even 1980s, despite many Press stories about deficiencies, the NHS did work, most of the time. Now, mass immigration and NHS maladministration has ruined it.

Management, or rather mismanagement, is one of the really major problems with the NHS.

I see that the propaganda campaign is being readied to pretend to the public that they, the public, are to blame for the NHS not working properly, because they, the public, are actually requesting the services that the NHS is supposed to provide.

This winter, the NHS will not easily be able to blame the 2020-2022 “Covid” “panicdemic” for its inability to run itself properly, and it has been 3 or 4 years since other illnesses or conditions (eg “flu”) were blamed (almost every winter for many years).

If and when the UK has a real government, it must tackle the healthcare mess and the associated adult social care mess as a priority.

One idea might be to use a “dedicated” or “ring-fenced” tax only for the NHS. “National Insurance”, which is merely another tax on top of income tax, is paid into general government funds. If it, or a large part of it, were only usable for health services, the taxpayers would accept it far more readily, especially under a suitable name such as the unoriginal but easily-understood “Health Services Tax”. It is claimed that that would be less efficient; I think not.

Another point: blaming the consumer, or worker, or citizen, now seems to be “a thing” in the UK.

NHS not working right? It’s because Joe Public actually has a medical problem and wants it dealt with. Water shortage? It’s the fault of the public, because they actually want to have a bath or shower, and to water their plants. People cannot live on peanuts? It’s their fault, for being unable to “budget”, or cook, or enjoy “fasting” (going without food— yes, the Daily Telegraph suggested even that recently).

Diary Blog, 21 August 2022, with some thoughts about Russia and the assassination of Daria Dugina

Morning music

On this day a year ago

Aleksandr Dugin and Daria Dugina

The daughter of Russian geopolitical thinker Aleksandr Dugin has been killed in a car bombing.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-62621509.

It is an open question as to whether agents of the Kiev regime were the perpetrators. The incident may have been planned and carried out by persons within the Russian and/or Kremlin elite, possibly as a proxy attack on Putin. It may even have been carried out by or on behalf of one or more external agencies, such as the CIA, or even MOSSAD.

Present speculation is that Dugin himself was the target, a theory supported by the apparent fact that Dugin was intending to use the same car as his daughter until deciding to travel separately; that would have been shortly before the bomb exploded.

If accurate, the facts known seem to indicate both that there was at least one hostile agent somewhere in or around the Dugin circle, and that Dugin’s guardian angel (literally) saved him.

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Dugin; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fourth_Political_Theory; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foundations_of_Geopolitics.

Is this somehow connected with the upsurge in Ukrainian (Kiev regime) attacks on both Crimea and Russia itself in recent days?

I do not expect these events to go unpunished. We may be about to see an escalation of the war which will surprise and shock.

Interesting sidelight

Leonid Grigoryevich Ivashov [Леонид Григорьевич Ивашов]:

On 31 January 2022, during the 2021–2022 Russo-Ukrainian crisis, as Chairman of the Russian Officers’ General Assembly, Gen. Ivashov published a statement condemning Putin’s “criminal policy of provoking a war” and calling for President Putin’s resignation.[6][7][8].

Blaming Putin for risking “the final destruction of Russian statehood and the extermination of the indigenous population of the country” Ivashov stated that the real danger for Russia was not NATO or the West but “the unviability of the state model, the complete incapacity and lack of professionalism of the system of power and administration, the passivity and disorganization of society.” Under these conditions “no country survives for long“.[8]

According to Roderick Gregory, “Ivashov believes that NATO is a hostile power, but his experience has taught him that the NATO/U.S. threat is under control and no external threat is imminent from the Western powers.”

[Wikipedia]

That of course depends on what is regarded as “an external threat“. In terms of actual invasion by NATO forces, that is obviously correct, but since the mid-1990s, NATO bases have been established in the Baltic region and elsewhere, and NWO/ZOG-supported uprisings based on fake “democracy” have occurred in various countries around Russia, most obviously in Ukraine.

In my view, Ivashov is right to say that “the unviability of the state model” is the biggest strategic problem facing Russia.

“Putinism” is a clearly-transitional model.

At first there was tsardom; Imperial Russia, based mainly on a society of noble landowners, business people, peasantry and clergy, all under an absolute ruler, the Tsar. That was “viable”, as its longevity proved, but failed to withstand the pressure when the “business” element burgeoned, starting to squeeze out the aristocracy (as in Chekhov’s play The Cherry Orchard), and when a new class, the industrial proletariat, started to push against the old order.

Then there was Sovietism, which again, for all its flaws, was a “viable” state model. According to its lights, it worked. It established a system which functioned, to which people gave allegiance, to some extent genuine allegiance, and which was, however grudgingly, accepted by the vast majority of the population as legitimate —and in any case embedded— for decades.

When Sovietism collapsed, which officially happened in 1991 but which had been happening under the surface even before 1989, what replaced it was a nothing, really, the Yeltsin klepto-state, in which the key people were the upstarts who had been nobodies only a few years before— Jew “oligarchs” (business tricksters) and various species of gangster.

When I myself was first in Moscow, in 1993, there were still traces of Sovietism everywhere, from having a “duty woman” stationed at a desk on each floor of my hotel, the Ukraina (for security, and to monitor the hotel guests), to having to be “invited” to Russia before being granted a visa.

I myself was invited, nominally, by the Academy of Sciences of the Russian Federation, the successor body to the USSR Academy of Sciences, and the people I went to see were based at the Academy of Sciences new building in Leninsky Prospekt.

[Leninsky Prospekt, Moscow]
[Президиум Российской академии наук. Москва, Ленинский проспект, the hugely-ugly Academy of Sciences building, which I visited several times in 1993]
[Ukraina Hotel, Kutuzovsky Prospekt, Moscow, where I stayed in 1993]

Those traces of Sovietism were there but fading fast. The “duty woman” on my floor was not the aged dragon of legend but a rather flirtatious young woman who used to chat with me at length. According to her, her floor contained, on one side, “quiet businessmen” (in which group she apparently numbered me) and, on the other side, “hooligani” (i.e. criminal types).

Chechen gangsters certainly stayed there— I recall chatting once to one of their commanders. His gold tooth was very striking.

The state had all but disappeared, replaced by a hotch-potch of business-related and/or crime-related structures.

After some years of near-chaos, “Yeltsinism”, if it existed at all as an ideology (I think not) was replaced by “Putinism”, which was also, and remains, unformed ideologically. A mixture of Russian nationalism, big business, and cronyism, with a few add-ons (Russian Orthodox Church backing, a few gestures to the Western consumer society etc).

Russia has still not found its way to a new ideology and system. Most people in Russia are still looking back— to the old Russian Orthodox Church, to tsarism, to the days of the Soviet Union, or are looking to the declining West as a way forward.

This was predicted, not only by me but by others, such as Sergei O. Prokofieff, the grandson of the composer Prokofiev. I was slightly acquainted with his father (all three now deceased). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergei_O._Prokofieff.

Ivashov’s point (see above) is proven by the ghastly mess the Russian Army has made of the Ukraine invasion. Complete ill-preparedness, incompetence, inability to organize. This is not the army that took over most of Afghanistan in a few days.

From the point of view of the Threefold Social Order, the key weakness of Russia under Putin is that the economic or business element has become far too entangled with the State. The result is two-fold: business imperatives have to be placed at the disposal of the State but, also, the State cannot act decisively because business convenience has led to flawed decisions and to people appointed via cronyism and corruption.

I am beginning to wonder whether this possibly botched assassination was not a kind of 20 July 1944 moment, though not aimed directly at Putin himself: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Valkyrie. Or possibly a warning to Putin, by some part of whatever the Russian Army General Staff now consists of.

Russia needs an ideology, something beyond ordinary Russian nationalism, in which it can believe. “Without vision, the people perish” [Book of Ezekiel].

Peter Hitchens

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-11130351/PETER-HITCHENS-stairs-bossing-time-rebelled.html.

Fascinating that the Mail on Sunday/Daily Mail online disallows readers to comment on Hitchens’ column. What are the msm manipulators afraid that the readers might write?

At times, the System presents itself as all-powerful, but in reality it only has the power allowed it by the people, usually by default, because the people are asleep most of the time.

That was seen during the panicdemic, when the State and its offshoots (eg the police) imposed all kinds of arbitrary nonsense: the facemask nonsense, “social distancing”, wearing a facemask muzzle in the supermarket but not in the pub across the way, the ludicrous “Rule of Six”, the “one-way systems” seen in some supermarkets and other places, and little retail nobodies suddenly given the power to say “move back a little” or “wear your mask higher over your nose“.

The police were among the worst offenders, poisoning lakes in the Peak District in case hikers might want to go to see them, using loudspeaker drones to bully middleaged couples walking on hills, and so on.

It was actually frightening to see how easily brainwashed many people were, such as the hysterical Welsh farming family who called both the police and the newspapers to rant and cry about the two people from England who had camped on one of their bare and deserted wet hillsides. Apparently, the campers had, in some manner unknown, “endangered” the Welsh hysterics just by being there. However, the newspaper reporters were OK (or did they slip the peasants a few pounds to make it all OK?).

The police were in their element as real crime all but ceased, leaving Plod plenty of time to chase after and fine motorists and motorcyclists taking a leisurely drive on the empty roads. The police were also able to polish their skills as a poundland KGB monitoring social media.

While all the above was happening, large numbers, perhaps millions, of unthinking idiots were out on command every week, clapping like trained seals “for the NHS” (which all but closed down) and the other “key workers” such as the very police who were enforcing the Government’s repression (and adding a few off-the-cuff “measures” of their own, such as examining shopping bought by people to make sure that the purchases were “reasonable”).

There was more. Far more. The nonsense went deep, and most people felt obliged to comply with much of it. Ironic. We used to laugh or shake our heads at the sorry citizens of North Korea or East Germany…

The bright spot, though, is that, gradually, many people did wake up, and realized that the “pandemic” was to a large extent a “scamdemic” and certainly a “panicdemic”.

Eventually, after having wasted hundreds of billions of pounds (the result of which we are now seeing as our economy collapses), the Government pretended that the useless and even harmful pseudo-“vaccines” could be presented as having “saved” the UK from worse outcomes, and so relaxed the absurd “measures” before the public rebelled en masse, which as I predicted was starting to happen (not by violent resistance but by people just not wearing the facemasks, and ignoring the stupid “Rule of Six” and “social distancing” etc). “Yes repeat no”.

Even now, though, one sometimes sees the odd crank wearing a facemask.

My view

Soon, sooner than many imagine, those of us still alive will be called upon to re-establish European civilization and culture. That may be hard and may be harsh, but it must be done. God mote it be!

Liz Truss

Talking of System puppets, I happened to see this [below] about Liz Truss:

Looking at Liz Truss, at the sheer mendacity and general dishonesty of the woman, about how she has managed to claw ahead in career terms without ever having actually achieved anything concrete, and about how she basically became an MP on her back, I am convinced that —assuming that Indian “clever boy” Sunak fails to overtake her— she will be a truly rotten Prime Minister, quite as bad as Boris-idiot has been, and will be facing a far more difficult set of challenges, especially economically.

This just might be the time for which social nationalism has been waiting for so long. An incompetent and stupid woman as Prime Minister, public dissatisfaction turning to anger as millions go cold and hungry, and a (so far) very uninspiring official Opposition.

All we need is an organizationally and ideologically tight party core; a start, if you like. Once such a movement develops and expands, it can crush all opposition.

Interesting column by Andrew Neil

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-11040599/ANDREW-NEIL-EU-thats-staring-abyss.html

Those who think the threat of Right-wing nativist-nationalist populists with a penchant for the Kremlin is over in Europe have another thing coming. Inflation can do strange, unpleasant things to democratic policies — and inflation has only started to bite.”

Just wait til Putin really squeezes the gas supplies. Moscow’s exports of gas account for only 2 per cent of Russia’s GDP. The Kremlin’s coffers are already brimming with dosh from soaring oil and gas prices, from which oil and gas producers, including Russia, have benefited.

Despite sanctions, the rouble is at an eight-year high.”

[Andrew Neil, Daily Mail]

Quite. Anti-Russia sanctions have hit hard…the EU and UK, that is. Russia has not been seriously impacted. In the old proverb, “don’t cut off your own nose to spite your face“.

We are “led” by complete idiots, many of whom are also self-interested fraudsters. Boris-idiot is only one example. Unmerited prominence.

As Putin looks with contempt at the weak mediocrities in charge on both sides of the Atlantic, no wonder he thinks he just has to bide his time and all sorts of things will fall into his lap.

[Andrew Neil, Daily Mail].

It is not a matter of Europe falling into Putin’s power, but a realignment, strategically, meaning Europe, including the UK, coming to a closer accommodation (“collaboration”, if you like) with a Russia which is nothing like the old Soviet Union. We have much to offer each other.

The post-1941 Atlantic alliance, America dominating Europe, has had its day. From our European perspective, it has nothing to offer us now except NWO wars, cultural trash, and a one-sided exploitative relationship seen in politics, law, and trade.

Jeremy Corbyn was grotesquely misrepresented by a hostile and unfair media.”

Even Peter Oborne cannot quite bring himself to say the unvarnished truth, which is that “Jeremy Corbyn was grotesquely misrepresented by a hostile and unfair media composed mainly of a pack of Zionist Jews, together with those non-Jew mass media journalist drones they have either bought or intimidated (by loss of career, money etc)”…

…and the great British newspaper-reading and TV-watching public took it in like mother’s milk:

It was a huge Israeli/”British Jewry” operation, carried out over years. Israeli Intelligence making use of, inter alia, the Zionist Jews so prominent in UK politics, law, business and mass media.

It worked. Corbyn was demonized and so “lost” the 2017 and 2019 elections, though actually Labour did fairly well at the 2017 one, far better than (yes, inevitably) the newspapers and TV made out.

By 2019, though, Corbyn-Labour had been thoroughly trashed. Not only over his (in fact quite limited) “anti-Semitism” (which most British people could not care less about anyway until or unless brainwashed by the msm), but more pertinently over Corbyn’s clunky old-style socialism (in fact, 1970s/1980s pseudo-socialism mixed with multikulti “identity politics”), his links with various overseas movements, especially Palestinian, and his sheer lack of nous.

Not all of the coverage was untruthful. Corbyn was a political deadhead, really: very poor educational background, almost no work background at all, and no real ideas about anything at all. Even his wives say that (like Boris-idiot) Corbyn rarely if ever reads a book.

What sank Corbyn, though, was the sheer unrelenting volume of the abuse or criticism. That eventually penetrated into enough thick skulls (the voters, in short).

I do not much regret Corbyn not having become Prime Minister of the UK. He would have been a rotten PM, perhaps as hopeless as Boris-idiot. Surrounded by thick black women, without much moral integrity, and with few ideas (no worse than “Boris”-idiot, though), Corbyn deserved to be binned.

As to Corbyn’s policy on immigration…

…yet are the so-called “Conservatives” any better? Much hard talk, much msm noise, but no action at all except the pathetic Rwanda policy.

Meanwhile, the navy, “Border Farce” and RNLI are ferrying 1,000 migrant-invaders daily across the Channel, and that figure is dwarfed by the huge waves of “legal” migration into the UK.

On immigration, it might be said that the only difference between Corbyn and the likes of “Boris”-idiot, Liz Truss, Sunak, Priti Patel etc is that Corbyn was actually honest about wanting more immigration to flood Britain.

Underwhelming drama

Saw what I think was the second episode of a new detective-type drama on ITV, Murder in Provence.

Starring Roger Allam, the actor who was Detective Chief Inspector Thursday in Endeavour, the show somehow misses the mark. Allam was perfectly cast in Endeavour, but rather miscast in Murder in Provence as a French juge d’instruction (“examining magistrate”, in the usual translation).

I should say that others in the drama were also not quite right, somehow.

The drama was filmed in Provence, and some care has evidently been taken as to locations etc, but the acting and particularly the dialogue just seemed wooden much of the time, and the plot was rather thin.

Some of the characters were cardboard cutouts: the ruthless “Russian oligarch”, with his yacht and on-call sniper, in particular.

Another so-typical contemporary British TV drama absurdity was that about half the characters were blacks. We all know how Europe and, indeed, France —as well as the UK— have been flooded by the continuing waves of non-white immigration, but actual blacks (Africans, West Indians) are only about 5% (if that) of the UK population, and in France also somewhere around 5%. Not 50%. Particularly on the Cote d’Azur, though I admit that that is not a region of France that I know from personal experience.

I cannot really say that I found even one of the Murder in Provence characters plausible, with the exception of a vineyard domain owner who was a minor character (and I lived in another part of France for about 4 years).

Not one that I shall be seeing in the future.

“Most dangerous” because the end of it all might actually be a nuclear exchange between Russia and NATO, including (inevitably) a massive attack on the UK, which would destroy almost everything, irradiate almost everything, and quite possibly wipe the UK and its people off the map forever.

Ukraine situation

[Daily Mail map showing the state of play in the east/southeast of Ukraine as of 9 April 2022]

It seems that Russian forces have withdrawn not only from the Kiev area but from the area north of Kiev generally. Without taking Kiev, there is no real victory, no matter what else happens.

It seems now that the Russian strategic aims in the short term are to secure and hold the Donbass area, encircle and capture or destroy the Ukrainian forces there, then to push from the north (Kharkov area), the south, and the east, creating a line broadly Kharkov-Dnipro [former Dnepropetrovsk] and down to, or linking with, Russian forces already occupying the Sea of Azov littoral.

If the Russians can do all that, then (once Dnipro and Zaporozhye are taken or besieged) they will have about a fifth of Ukraine (half of Ukraine east of the Dnieper) under their control.

In other news, it seems that the UK is sending anti-ship missiles to Odessa. If Russian ships start to be sunk from Odessa, then it is not unlikely that the response will be swift and brutal. The city of Odessa may be completely destroyed by missiles and artillery if the Russian Black Sea Fleet comes under serious attack. Very sad from the historical and aesthetic point of view (and, of course, the humanitarian one).

It looks as though the Russians are degrading the Ukrainian fuel reserves and supply lines. Without fuel, the Kiev regime forces will become little more mobile than the armies of Napoleon and Wellington.

Ammunition continues to run out for the Ukrainian forces.

Despite msm reports etc, this still looks like a winnable military situation for Russia, in the short to medium term. I read today that (as predicted in this blog) Russia is now calling up recently-active reserves, i.e. former soldiers who are still reasonably “current”.

Politically, of course, and in terms of public relations, this Ukraine adventure has been disastrous for Russia, not because of the invasion as such, but because of how it was so badly planned and executed. Also, because of how unsuccessful it has been, overall. Pathetic, and terrible in all ways.

Autarky in Russia

I have blogged previously about how some leading 20thC thinkers saw the future of Russia: Rudolf Steiner and Valentin Tomberg in particular. About how Russia would eventually bring into being the next world age, the 6th Post-Atlantean Age, from about 3,500 AD: see, e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Steiner; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg; https://rudolfsteinerquotes.wordpress.com/2019/10/09/the-sixth-post-atlantean-epoch-of-culture-will-be-more-spiritual-3/; https://www.wellspringbookshop.co.uk/articles/the-war-of-all-against-all/.

I have often thought how Russia needs a degree of isolation in order for the seed of that future age not to be poisoned by whatever now exists in the world, centred on “the West”, meaning on North America, Britain, and then western and central continental Europe.

Ironically, it now appears that it is the West itself which is sending Russia into that isolation, via economic and cultural sanctions.

The idea of autarky (self-sufficiency)[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autarky] has found favour in Russia in recent decades, notably in the writings of Alexander Dugin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Dugin].

Russia is one of the few countries in the world which can, if necessary, do without the rest of the world, in economic terms. 72 times the size of the UK, and 2-3 times the size of the USA (depending on whether Alaska is included), Russia has the land, the climatic zones, the varied natural and human resources, to make autarky work.

Russia could create an entirely different form of human society. It tried and failed already, with Marxism-Leninism, but that was building houses of straw. On another basis, such an attempt can succeed.

Ukraine

[Daily Mail graphic showing the apparent state of play as of 4 April 2022]

The alleged (and, if true, appalling) crimes said to have been committed by Russian forces in the Kiev area have trashed Russia’s reputation even more than was already the case.

Despite the brutal history of both Imperial Russia and the Soviet Union, and despite the cruelties inflicted by Russian and other troops on the conquered Axis nations of the 1940s (notably on the peoples of Germany, Austria, and Hungary), the overall (or, perhaps, parallel) reputation of Russia and Russians as a cultured people never completely died. I begin to fear, now, that that reputation has all but died in the West, at least among the relatively uneducated masses, and that Russia is seen now, by many, as a barbarous and cruel nation and people.

The Russian Army evidently lacks discipline, a fact shown not only by the alleged war crimes (assuming reports are accurate), but by the pathetic planning and execution of the invasion itself, and also by the reports of Russian soldiers fraternizing with the Ukrainian civilians (and so being poisoned with spiked cakes, pies, booze etc). We see reports of Russian soldiers looting shops and homes, and it is no excuse to say that, historically, many armies at war (including British and American) have committed some such acts at times.

Putin, for all the NWO/ZOG propaganda against him, is not Stalin, and Russia in 2022 is not the Soviet Union.

Stalin would have shot generals, intelligence officers, and lower-ranked persons in large numbers by now, for their lack of discipline, for their lack of performance, and for the bad impression of Russia given by them, an impression now spread across the world.

Putin cannot copy Stalin. He has not the power, has not the —or any proper— ideology, and has not the power structure (including a facade of “law”) to permit him such freedom of action.

Putin and Putinism was, like the Yeltsin years of shambles, a transitional phase between Sovietism and the future. “Was?” Well, unless Russia changes drastically soon, Putin and Putinism are history, not because of the very poor behaviour of some of the Russian soldiers, but because of the sheer failure of almost every aspect of this “operation”. Also, because the standards of living of Russians will now decline without any —even notional— gain or benefit.

Below, some of the recent devastation:

[devastated suburban road in Bucha, Kiev district, Ukraine]

Hard to believe, looking at the Bucha area as it now is, that Bulgakov [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Bulgakov], born in Kiev, whose original main family home is now a museum there, and who was author of the book The White Guard (about the various contending forces in Ukraine between the start of the Russian Civil War and the period just before the establishment of Soviet power) had a pleasant summer cottage in Bucha.

[Bulgakov’s pre-revolutionary family home in Kiev itself, now a museum: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Bulgakov_Museum]

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_White_Guard; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_War_of_Independence.

Looking at the terrible aftermath of war in that Kiev suburb (nearby town) of Bucha, and then seeing [below] Bucha city park as it was in summer a year or two ago, and essentially as it was up until the recent invasion and war, makes one fear for such places not only in Ukraine but in Poland, Germany, France and, yes the UK too; even in the USA.

[city park, Bucha, Ukraine, before invasion]

We see more and more calls for more armament to be shipped to the Kiev regime. The world is being pushed, by hidden conspiratorial groups in the West, towards world war, or at least NATO-Russia war.

One sees silly people saying “Russia only has the GDP of Italy!” as if that is in any way relevant. The war of 1914-18, the war of 1939-45 (for Russia, 1941-45), those wars had economic imperatives, but a nuclear war between east and west has no such imperatives; it will, or would, be over too quickly for economic strength to play much part.

One also sees “NATO has many times the nuclear power of Russia“. Again, irrelevant. Once you’re dead, you’re dead and, in most cases, you are as dead if one nuclear missile lands on you as you are if ten or twenty land on you. Something for the citizens (and political leaders) of London, Washington, New York, Seattle, LA, Houston, Chicago etc to think about.

Yes, NATO could destroy Russian cities as well as straight military targets, but some of the countryside would be left, and some of the people, maybe even some cities, in a country 72x the size of the UK and 2x the size of the (contiguous) USA.

What would be left of the UK if, say, London, Southampton, Portsmouth, Bristol, Plymouth, Birmingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh, Liverpool and Manchester were all wiped out? Not a lot. That’s with 10 missiles. Russia has 6,200, we are told.

If the, say, 20, 30, 40 largest American cities were wiped out, there would be people, areas, even towns left, but it would take a century for the US to really recover. The UK? I am not sure that it would ever really recover.

France? A large country, almost three times the size of the UK, but if its top ten cities were destroyed, France as a state would be gone, certainly for many decades, possibly for centuries.

I am disturbed to see people in the UK, including some of the less-intelligent politicians (eg Johnny Mercer MP) almost saying “bring it on“, re. nuclear war with Russia. And why? Over the Jew-ruled failed “state” of Ukraine? It’s just mad.

As for shipping tanks, planes etc to the Kiev regime, that just prolongs the suffering in Ukraine, as well as making it quite likely that Russia will attack NATO forces or supply chains directly.

What about the strategic situation in Ukraine itself? As I thought right from the start, the aim seems to be to seize the coastal areas, and also the part of Ukraine east of the Dnieper river. However, I fail to see how that is sustainable if Kiev itself is left in the hands of the Zelensky regime.

Kiev is on both banks of the Dnieper, but the important and historic parts are mostly on the western side. If Kiev is not taken by Russian forces, then the holding of much of eastern Ukraine (the northern sector of the east) becomes, surely, unsustainable, because arms, equipment, ammunition, and forces will be channelled through Kiev region to attack the Russian-held areas to the east.

Everything depends on Putin, and whether he can carry with him his military and intelligence “top brass” in any attempt to seize back the initiative.

Hard to see that the defenders of all the presently-besieged cities will be able to keep going for very long in terms of food, as well as ammunition, but human beings are remarkable creatures at times. I daresay that the Ukrainian fighters will still be eating after the civilians have starved.

Looking at the conflict as if through the eyes of Putin, the odds must be on escalation rather than withdrawal.

We know more or less where Russian forces are, but what we, as Western observers, do not know in any detail, is where are the Kiev-regime forces. I have read accounts in online newspapers etc to the effect that most active Ukrainian forces are in the east and south-east, which seems credible, looking at the resistance in those sectors. If, then, Russian forces can defeat those resisting forces, huge numbers of Russian troops will be available to redeploy, either to the Kiev area or to the occupation of the rest of east-of-Dnieper Ukraine.

Ukraine is now not in any sense a functioning state. It has no legitimate government (and has banned most opposition parties) but, more importantly, it cannot import or export by sea, because its ports are blockaded, occupied, or under attack, its domestic market for anything except food is all but non-existent, its industrial centres are mostly occupied or ablaze, and its farm produce can only be exported by road, making it uneconomic.

More facemask nonsense

Readers of this blog will know how I have opposed the facemask nonsense for the past two years. I have now just seen a photo of Kim Jong-Un this week, pointedly not wearing a facemask, while all the underlings around him are wearing the useless muzzles.

Just as in the West. Same set-up: the “important” person or persons not wearing facemasks, while all the “unimportant” persons are wearing them, and forced to do so. As often said, this has nothing at all to do with health and safety.

Late tweets

Not so sure about the “fascist” designation; after all, Mussolini, Franco and Pinochet were less harsh than Trudeau’s regime.

So ignorant radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer (((?))) is ready for nuclear war with Russia? Ready to see her precious family and home obliterated with the rest of London, all because she wants (other people) to fight Russia in and about Ukraine, a shambolic failed state run by a sickeningly corrupt cabal, mostly Jews?

“Madonna”, a major symptom of a very sick society.
