Western msm etc— mainly Jewish, or under Jewish (Jew-Zionist) control.
Idiots such as (retired) General Petraeus in the USA should shut up, or be shut up, before their unwanted “advice” creates a massive nuclear war over all of Russia, Europe, and the USA itself. Do the Americans think that their way of life could survive a nuclear attack of perhaps 2,000 nuclear missiles on their 200 top cities, towns, ports, and air bases?
Imagine that— Gove and Shapps are being seen as “safe pairs of hands“! Unbelievable.
Very important work. SS-Ahnenerbe, in the 1930s, began the work of investigating ancient origins of European humanity. It is equally important to look to the future, meaning— how can the foundation for a quantum leap in human evolution be laid? It does not matter whether you call that an “evolutionary development” or “the basis for a super-race”.
Heard an interview with Liz Truss; Nick Robinson as interviewer.
My impressions: Liz Truss sounds completely without character. Her voice is a near-monotone (my own thought as I listened was “soulless“). Not in the slightest compelling, or even slightly interesting. A not very pleasant droning, slightly hectoring noise. Classless…not obviously “educated”, and certainly not in any way “upper crust” but, at the same time, not a voice coming from the popular masses either.
As to the substance of what Liz Truss said, I should say that she came across as someone saying nothing of any weight whatsoever. Bland or bald statements of general intent, meaning nothing. Nick Robinson tried to get Liz Truss to pledge to one or two specifics, but without much success.
Nick Robinson encouraged Liz Truss to answer his questions, but without success. In the popular phrase, I do not detect a lot going on in her head.
Liz Truss sounded like someone whose level was, at best, a county council, not being a Prime Minister or anywhere near that elevation.
I predicted on the blog, when Liz Truss was selected/elected as Conservative Party leader, that I would be surprised if she survived past Christmas 2022, and astonished if she survived in post past Spring 2023. I see no reason to change that view.
Stupid “ho” Truss pledging her fealty to the Jews and Israel.
Saw a short piece on the TV news featuring Suella Braverman. Britain now seems to specialize in elevating, from total mediocrity, persons like this. “British” politics elevates a Suella Braverman from obscurity to Attorney-General and now Home Secretary. The same circumstances, more or less, elevated that other waste of space, Priti Patel, to the same Cabinet office. We now also have James Cleverly posing as Foreign Secretary. Another non-white. Only stupid Liz Truss is even English.
Suella Braverman seems to get her view of the country’s social security system from trash TV shows such as Benefits Britain.
This is a car crash of a government that surely cannot last long. Even the Conservative MPs are mostly unhappy about it.
I would never clap on command, and never did.
Below, a disturbing story:
I do not know any of the background to the above tweet-thread, but such occurrences (citizens being harassed by the police acting as a poundland KGB at the instigation of malicious individuals or groups) have become all too common in the Britain of recent years. My own experiences have included:
Malicious Jews and others make false allegations with near-impunity, thus wasting the time and money of the true victims (the people questioned or even arrested by police), and also that of the police forces concerned.
Labour, the Conservatives, the economy, and the political fallout
Thus one Marian Kennedy [“writes fiction; international lawyer“] proves that she cannot see the wood from the trees.
The whole point about what seems to have been Delia Smith’s cri de coeur [I did not actually see Peston] is that the present Parliamentary system, the “three main parties” set-up, the voting system, the system for selection of Parliamentary candidates etc, is just not working properly.
It is because of this parallel malfunctioning that, inter alia, we have had as Prime Minister a part-Jew, part-Levantine bad joke, and now we have, in the same high position, a woman who really only became an MP on her back, frankly. The same malfunctioning has resulted in a pretty poor female barrister becoming Home Secretary (not that all of her views are wrong), and a rather thick half-caste with a “degree” in Hospitality Management becoming the new Foreign Secretary; not to mention the woolly-headed African who is now Chancellor of the Exchequer, even if he did attend Eton and Cambridge (both, incidentally, hugely over-rated, as are so many UK institutions: Oxford University, the Church, the Bar, SIS, MI5, the armed forces, the Monarchy etc).
The whole system is broken. Delia Smith may have been unable, on a TV programme, to articulate it in detail, but she got the basics right.
Ironically, “In 2014, [Kwasi Kwarteng’s] book War and Gold: A Five-Hundred-Year History of Empires, Adventures and Debt was published. It is a history of capital and the enduring ability of money, when combined with speculation, to ruin societies. “
Another opinion from the same lady as above:
Well, Corbyn actually did better than many believe, electorally, but what sank him and Labour in 2019 was mainly a triad of factors: the relentless, daily, Jew-lobby campaign since 2015, painting him as terrorist-enabler, hopeless etc; the eccentric FPTP voting system, and finally the way in which political snake-oil salesman and “controlled opposition” big cheese, Nigel Farage, stabbed his own party and its candidates in the back, with most Brexit Party votes then falling to Conservative candidates.
Labour under Starmer was also in the doldrums, and deserved to be, but now that the Conservative Party has hit (surely?) rock-bottom in terms of its top leadership, Labour can just sit and rake in its chips.
Not very many people really like, trust, or support Labour or Starmer, but in a basically binary system where one party is sawing off the branch upon which it has been sitting, the other party, Labour, has every chance, simply by default.
Talking about how the Conservative Party is ruining its own electoral chances, I was frankly astounded to read that, by reason of Kwarteng’s unbelievable mismanagement and lack of nous, the present Government may actually fund their tax cuts for the affluent and wealthy by cutting pensions and benefits in real terms. For example, by only uprating State pensions by, say, 5% at a time when inflation is forecast to go to at least 10% and maybe 20%.
Already, we see that most State benefits (including Pension Guarantee Credit) will not be uprated to anything like inflation-level.
Who votes Conservative? Mostly, most obviously, people over 60, and especially people over 80. This is the absolute core of Conservative Party electoral support. If you cheat them (for the second year running) of the promised “triple lock” uprating, then you, the Conservative Party, are going to be well and truly f*****. Not a term I use often on the blog.
We know how nuanced the FPTP voting system can be. It was said that, in 2017, a few thousand voters in a small number of constituencies (a hundred or two hundred in each) could actually have changed the outcome of the General Election.
In 2019, 67 seats were won by a margin of less than 5% of votes cast. In 2017, 97 seats.
In 2019, 141 seats were won or held by margins of less than 10% of votes cast:
More than a fifth of all constituencies.
Not only are pensioners (of which, incidentally, I am now one) most likely to vote Conservative (not me, of course), but they are most likely, of all age groups, to vote at all, both in general and via postal balloting.
If the pensioners and the “struggling middle”, as well as the low paid and more obviously poor, decide to vote elsewhere than Conservative, or even simply not to vote at all, the Conservative party might lose an incredible number of seats. Maybe a hundred; maybe two hundred.
At present, the Conservative Party has 357 seats in the Commons (out of 650). If that were to be reduced to 257, or 157, the effect would be seismic.
If the Conservative Party leadership think that the English and general UK “grey vote” is guaranteed whatever, and that those votes can be taken for granted, they are very much mistaken. That’s what idiots like Jim Murphy thought about the Scottish Labour vote, once.

I remember seeing, on American TV, the Poll Tax riots in London about 32 years ago. Could it happen again, or would it this time be a slower burn, via everything from simple poverty-fuelled shoplifting to occasional outbreaks of politically-oriented vandalism, or even “protest” assassination of MPs and/or ministers?
Over the past decade, I have had the feeling that the succession of poor Prime Ministers were not fatal for the Conservative Party, because all that the Party had to do was to replace the leader, and the voters would give the new leader a chance. At the same time, Labour was falling into a niche composed of public service workers, and some of the non-white “communities”.
Now, there is a change, caused mainly by the sheer ineptitude of the “unelected” (in terms of true mandate) Prime Minister and her Cabinet. There is a feeling that, this time, the Conservatives have really hit rock bottom, and even if people are not going to vote Labour, the Conservatives have definitely lost the votes of the vast majority.
This could be almost existential for the Conservative Party.

The NWO endgame sees Russia (Russian Federation) as a broken-up series of minor states, all ruled by the money power [ZOG] and completely without military might. However, I think that, before that can come to pass, Russia may be goaded into launching its nuclear arsenal against the West, and particularly the USA.
After WW2, despite the Cold War, the American public and decision-makers thought the USA invulnerable. It could invade other countries, interfere with other countries, even bomb (conventionally) other countries, without any comeback.
The 2001 attack on the World Trade Center changed that. The incredible, totally scalded, American reaction said it all to me— “we can be hit“…
All the same, that was over 20 years ago now, and the Americans still do not really think that their cities might one day be rubble, like those the Americans (and British) reduced to rubble in WW2: Berlin, other German cities, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki etc.
Looking at the pronouncements of various American generals, former commanders, think tanks etc, their consensus seems to be that the USA can match the Russian nuclear arsenal, and more, and that even a nuclear exchange could be limited, and then halted. I think not.
If Russia uses tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine, and if then “NATO” (USA/NWO) attacks Russia or Russian concentrations or bases, whether or not with nuclear forces, I think that an escalation to a strategic nuclear exchange more than likely.
True, that would probably mean, as well as elimination of Russian air bases, missile centres, ports, destruction of major Russian cities such as Moscow, Petersburg, Novosibirsk and others. However, it would not be a one-sided conflict.
Russia has, it is said, perhaps 6,000 nuclear weapons. Let us say that it managed to land at least one on each of the top 100 American cities.
The top 10? New York, LA, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, San Antonio.
So all of those, and maybe the next 90 largest cities…
How long would it be before the USA recovered? 100 years? 200?
What about the UK? London gone. The next half-dozen largest cities gone, so maybe Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff, Plymouth, Southampton, Bristol. Others, too. All ports of any size. Air bases etc.
There should be serious thought now about how not to get into a nuclear exchange with Russia.
This whole “pro-Ukraine” (anti-Russia) campaign is being spearheaded by the Jew element. You only have to look at social media to see it.
Ha. Woolly-head Kwasi— what an Uncle Tom for the milieu of the hedge funds.
Is it inoperative? Why is gas apparently bubbling out of it, then? Puzzling.
“NATO” is just a label. Think “New World Order” [“NWO”].
Some of these “Covid” and “vaccine” fanatics would go along with the sacrifice of all first-born children if some law, confirmed as “necessary” by priests of medicine in white outfits, were laid down by a supposedly “caring sharing” government. Watch this space.
We now live in an infested slum, nationwide. Indeed —judging by the way (West) Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands have declined since the 1980s— Europe-wide, though there may be exceptions. Paris? Don’t remind me (it’s too sad).
Ha ha! An obvious fake. Unusual. Kiev-regime propaganda has generally been very skilled since the start of the conflict, easily beating the few Russian attempts to counter it.
Tip the Jesuit anti-Pope and usurper out of the Vatican .
The 1938 Pathe commentary might be better termed “pathetic”, though. Cheap Jewish hee-hawing for an unsophisticated and uneducated audience.

Britain is becoming a very strange country, on the one hand a nuclear power with all kinds of advanced technology, on the other hand a country where millions of its own citizens rely on foodbanks, millions more on State benefits, a country invaded daily by invaders in small boats as well as “legally” (and who are then housed in advance of actual British people). A country the currency of which shows signs of crashing.
Still, when the UK government is headed by a stupidly ignorant woman who only became an MP on her back, and when the Chancellor of the Exchequer is a woolly-headed n****r whose previous jobs included being a gopher at hedge funds, as well as a newspaper columnist…
…and let’s not forget our new Foreign Secretary, a half-caste with a “mcdegree” in “Hospitality Management”…
“Pay peanuts get monkeys”, they say. Is the aphorism true in reverse?

The EU as it now is is a facade of “liberal democracy” behind which is a core of NWO/ZOG power. Those who accept the EU at face-value are the kind of people who accept “trans” people as women, who accept the “panicdemic” as a real pandemic, and who think that only “discrimination” by Europeans has prevented blacks from creating a civilization, etc. They also accept the “holocaust” farrago as an unquestioned and unquestionable historical truth.
Treat the von der Leyen type as the evil tyrants they are.
It looks as though Italy has a leader.
Wake up, Hitchens. There is an NWO/ZOG-approved msm mob, mirrored by a vastly larger amateur mob of the same sort on Twitter etc. They all know what to say and not say— the amateurs out of “me too-ism”, and those scribblers and talking heads making a living out of it because they know that if they do not support, eg the Jew/Israel lobby, the NWO agenda in Ukraine, or re Russia, or re Assad etc, or the whole “panicdemic” farrago, or the whole “holocaust” farrago, then their “distinguished” careers stop right there. Right there.
Anyway, “distinguished” is usually very much in the eye of the beholder.
Another would-be “saviour” glad to see the back of his Ukrainian “refugee” guest…
A “refugee” from Kiev, most of which has been little touched (so far) by the conflict.
Some of the Ukrainians in the UK are genuine refugees from war; most are not. They usually come from areas untouched by war, often have financial resources and/or expensive cars, and are looking for an economic or career opportunity.
Late afternoon music
I visited the only fairly local supermarket this evening, a Waitrose branch. Outside the entrance to the building, a makeshift medical bed, like a large sleeping bag. Several staff were tending to the occupant, an elderly person. There were medic-looking cases or bags around, presumably from the first-aid room.
I did not like to stare, or interfere, in view of the fact that the incident was under control, but found out from one of the staff inside that someone had tripped over and was unable to get up. An ambulance had been called some 2 hours previously, but had not yet arrived. Two hours!
When I left, half an hour later, with my shopping, the patient was still there, still on the ground, and a member of staff had even moved up a large square parasol/umbrella from the Waitrose Cafe, to shield the person from a shower.
As I pushed my shopping to my vehicle, a large new Bentley passed by. Like something from a satirical sketch about Britain in 2022: if you are lucky, you drive off in a large new Bentley, if not so lucky you lie on a pavement, dependent on “the kindness of strangers”, until the NHS can organize itself to get around to you.
Eventually, I drove out. The patient was still lying, waiting and, needless to add, no-one was standing around clapping…
Britain 2022, where an ambulance takes hours to reach you.
Meanwhile, in some seaside resort, the pathetic remnants of the Labour Party were all going through the motions of praising “our NHS” etc, as they always do. Still, I suppose that the next General Election is now, rather surprisingly, suddenly theirs to lose.
As I blogged a day or two ago, “JimmySecUK” presents himself as “sometime journalist” and as a supposed specialist of some kind in the field(s) of “national security” and strategy, but seems unwilling to put either his name or his organizational affiliations (if any) on his Twitter masthead.
An example of his style:
At least Peter Hitchens is open about his identity, and that of his newspaper (of course, he actually has one).
Very true. People have been easily brainwashed to regard Putin and Russia as some kind of danger to the UK. If the idiots just thought for a moment, they might wonder how Russia is a threat to the UK when even the invasion and occupation of a small part of Ukraine (which, after all, was effectively part of the same country as Russia until 1991) is not going well for Russia.
As an example of the kind of stupid person who actually knows nothing yet feels the need to comment publicly, look at the tweeted reply from one Louise Down, of Kent:
Why, asks the idiot, are some of the words of the leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world being reported on?
What can one say? Has that kind of stupidity become more widespread since the population was conditioned and brainwashed during the “Covid” “panicdemic”?
I hope that some of the people who matter here, in the governments and legislatures of the West, are listening. Unfortunately, many are either NWO/ZOG drones or are anyway caught up in the delusion that the Russia-Ukraine conflict is also a Russia-UK [etc] conflict. It need not be, and is only so now because the System, including almost all of the msm, are making it so.
Ukraine has only been an independent state (failed state) for 31 years, years which have seen its people become the poorest in Europe, years of corruption and neglect.
Now the British public are told that “we” must support and even fight for that ramshackle failed state, for its mainly Jewish regime, and that said regime is one of democracy and freedom.
In fact, the Jew Zelensky and his regime have closed down all opposition parties, arrested or shot those opposed to war with Russia, and closed down all trade unions.

…thus surely proving conclusively that Liz Truss has no idea at all about economic matters, having already been proven to have no idea about foreign affairs.
I thought that the governments of Theresa May and “Boris”-idiot were bad jokes, but this present “shitshow” (in the immortal words of Johnny Mercer MP) takes the biscuit.
Thinking the unthinkable, what would happen if Russian forces were to use tactical nuclear weapons to target Kiev-regime concentrations on or near the present front line? It might be that Russian forces would also be affected. What if (thinking the even more “unthinkable”) Putin were to destroy the city of Kiev? That might collapse the whole Kiev-regime “state” of Ukraine overnight.
I doubt that Putin would do it, if only because Kiev was not only the first “Ukrainian” city, but the first Russian city (after Novgorod), the strategic centre of Kievan Rus: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27.
Of course, large-scale destruction of cities is not new. We only have to think of the ancient cities which no longer exist: Troy, Carthage (destroyed two or, arguably, three times, and now replaced by modern Tunis) and many others. In the 20th century, the Americans and British inflicted huge damage on a number of cities during, mainly but not exclusively, the Second World War. The Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki remain the only ones destroyed or nearly-destroyed by atomic weapons.
Looking at the war-drums now beating in the Western msm, it all sounds very much like an organized campaign to foment war on a huge, trans-continental scale.
Had there been no Western (NATO, NWO) support for the Zelensky regime, meaning billions of dollars or pounds of actual money, as well as arms and ammunition, the war would now be over bar the shouting. Now, Ukraine faces a protracted and even more terrible war, and countries such as the UK face the possibility (which grows more likely daily) of nuclear annihilation.
This madness should stop, but will not, because powerful and influential forces want Russia to be, ideally, subjugated or, if that cannot or does not happen, wiped out.
Not that no blame attaches to Russia. As I blogged from the start, the performance of the Russian Army has been appalling. The Russian General Staff have shown themselves to be a pack of idiots, and the GRU has shown itself unfit for purpose. We know what Stalin would have done in such a circumstance.
Where are the once-dreaded Russian Spetsnaz forces?
The invasion of Ukraine could and should have been done very swiftly, relentlessly, and with minimal hurt, bloodshed and damage.
As Imperial Russia was once known, and then the Soviet Union (in the 1930s), “a colossus on legs of straw“, and many of its top military people, men of straw.
This situation, meaning the whole war, could change quickly. We could yet see Russian forces overwhelm the whole of Ukraine east of the Dnieper.
The Zelensky regime and its Ukrainian faux-state is just a shell, really. No economy to speak of, no legitimacy, its armed forces only surviving by reason of huge amounts of NATO and other donated weaponry.
The morale of the Kiev-regime forces does seem to be higher than that of the Russian forces in theatre, no doubt because the former see themselves as fighting for their native land, but morale is only determinative if the soldiers remain alive. If those statistics about Ukrainian losses are broadly accurate, they are staggering.
Of course, Zelensky, as a Jew, is neither Ukrainian nor Russian.
Macron will have to go home to mama, or should that be to Mme. Macron?
Did I read that Toby Young and his “Free Speech Union” spoke up when prominent Patriotic Alternative members Laura Towler, her husband Sam Melia, and Mark Collett had their personal bank accounts closed, not by court order but because the bank staff disapproved of their views (or were told to “disapprove”)?
No. Because Toby Young and the Free Speech Union never did speak up.
Neither did Young and his “Free Speech Union” say a word in defence of Alison Chabloz (imprisoned for singing songs and posting songs quite truthfully lampooning Jews and Jewish behaviour), Jez Turner (imprisoned for urging removal of Jews from the UK in a speech), nor indeed in defence of my rights.
Still, half a glass is better than none, I suppose. At least Toby Young says the right sort of words on freedom of expression.
Hitchens, though, blames the instrument of repression (the modern technology) rather than the present socio-political “System” itself, and/or the Jew-Zionist lobby (which is behind most of the attacks on free speech in the UK).
In fact, many actual MPs have fabricated large parts of their own history. One of the most egregious cases, Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, was proven to have simply invented parts of his CV, and to have embellished most of the rest, yet he is still interviewed respectfully by msm talking heads; and that is before one even considers his nasty and backward policies as DWP Secretary of State 2010-2015.
I am just wondering why anyone would think that claiming to have worked for Jim Murphy would boost his career. Murphy was a student for 11 years (yet still left without having been awarded a degree), and as MP was an eager expenses cheat:
“A 2010 commission chaired by Thomas Legg demanded Murphy repay £577.46 in expenses which he had overclaimed. He did not appeal, and repaid the money in full. Expenses documents made available showed he also claimed over £1 million between 2001 and 2012. In 2007/8 he claimed £3,900 for food, £2,284 for petty cash and £4,884 for a new bathroom. He claimed £249 for a TV set and a further £99 for a TV stand; £1762.50 of taxpayers money paid for Murphy’s website whilst further claims included Labour party adverts in the local press. He claimed almost £2000 of public cash to pay private accountants to handle his tax returns.
In 2012, Murphy was among a group of 27 MPs named as benefiting from up to £20,000 per year expenses to rent accommodation in London, at the same time as letting out property they owned in the city. Although the practice did not break rules, it has been characterised as a “loophole” that allows politicians to profit from Commons allowances. He also designated his constituency home in Glasgow as his second home for which he claimed £780 a month in mortgage interest payments in 2007/2008.”
Blair certainly had some odd people in his government. Apart from Murphy (a fervent pro-Zionist, but also a fanatical teetotaller, vegetarian —that’s OK by me— and Roman Catholic —ambivalent as to that—), there was also that Welsh lesbian (another expenses cheat, another pro-Zionist too) who admitted that she was too thick to do her job, and that extreme Roman Catholic (Opus Dei) woman, who wore a spiked belt under her clothing, like a nun in a Ken Russell film. And that’s just three of them.
Incidentally, I believe that the thick Welsh lesbian expenses cheat (and Jews’ puppet) was in Keir Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet until last year, while the Opus Dei woman, Ruth Kelly, now works for the Vatican, having also worked for HSBC for 5 years, 2010-2015. She left the Labour party in 2018 because she disliked Corbyn, and joined the “conservative” pressure group Policy Exchange.
“A trans activist who called a father a ‘fascist’ as he was holding his baby has apologised but claimed the abuse was an attempt to ‘protect’ her trans friends – amid calls for her to be sacked from her job as a Labour MP’s aide.
Carly-May Kavanagh, a policy caseworker in the House of Commons for Brighton MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle, is shown in footage with another woman shouting at the unidentified man with the baby in his arms at a rally in Brighton.
…The friend tells the man: ‘Oh you’re raising a little fascist’.
Miss Kavanagh then joins in and tells the unidentified man: ‘F****** fascist… you think that’s a good idea, do you, to raise a child who believes this filth […] you are disgusting.’ At one point she comes within inches of the baby, which remains calm.”
It looks as if that pair deliberately targeted the man because he was carrying a baby, and so would be less likely to hit them (which they well deserved).
I wish that there existed an English “SA”, members of which would [further comment redacted in our “free” country…].
More seriously, eventually we are going to have to deal with all this nonsense and much more besides. It will not be pleasant, it will not be pretty, and it will be hard on the quiet heroes who will be tasked with doing it, but it will have to be done.
“The protesters disrupted speeches by the Standing For Women founder Kellie-Jay Keen and other speakers.
Keen has frequently attracted the ire of pro-trans activists over her views on gender rights.
The women’s rights campaigner said today: ‘Shouting fascist in front of a baby is a particularly visible sign of how this movement is full of absolute lunacy. As far as I’m concerned transgender ideology is a quasi-religious cult and it’s very dangerous.
‘It seeks to use fear and intimidation to silence dissent. I’ve been interviewed by the police twice and arrested once.“
“Fear“…”intimidation“…[and false complaints to] “police“. Pretty similar to the tactics of the Jew-Zionists, as I know from my own experience.
What most people forget, though, is how the present system, “the System”, is deliberately encouraging not only the “trans” nonsense, but other nonsense, such as “Black Lives Matter”, “Covid” hysteria, the white British “terrorism” “threat” hysteria (the “threat” is, in fact, non-existent), anti-Russia hysteria etc. Look at the behaviour of the police in places such as Brighton, as well as in the major cities, painting their cars in weird colours, allowing Notting Hill rioters…I mean “revellers“…to simulate sex with the women police officers, etc.

Incidentally, the lady tweeter’s comment means “real guys” or “real good fellows” (ha…not “Goodfellas“, I hope, thinking of the American film).
Of course, for “NATO” (NWO/ZOG) to have a nuclear war with Russia would be totally mad —for all sides and none— but, looking at 1914 and 1939, that does not mean that it will not happen.
Russia should make it clear to both decision-makers and the public in the West (if it can) that any nuclear war would mean Russia targeting not only military and naval bases etc, but also large cities.
The American public are all too used to cheering on their bombers and missiles, as they strike cities far from the USA, cities the inhabitants of which have no means of defence or retaliation, but I think that that same American public will not be quite so brave if they think that they themselves are soon going to be fighting for survival in a nuclear wasteland.
As for the UK, our country is too small for any doubt to exist: a nuclear war with Russia means that most of the country will be destroyed, meaning almost everything razed to the ground, and the areas made uninhabitable, whether air bases, ports, or cities are the target.
Sadly, the fate of my country is not in my hands but in those of near-cretins such as Liz Truss, Ben Wallace, and James Cleverly.
This sort of nonsense is now so common that I almost fail to be enraged at it. Symptomatic of an academia that should be eliminated, and then replaced by a better establishment.
Looks like the lesser finance-capitalist and hanger-on “executive” rats are leaving what they imagine to be Russia’s sinking ship…
I wonder what the general’s thoughts will be when Russian nuclear missiles rain down on every major city in the USA, including one or two in Florida, where he lives? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Hodges.
Saw a few minutes of the TV news this evening. Highlights of Putin’s statement of this morning. My impression, regardless of anything else, is that, as he said, he is certainly not bluffing.
Some may say that that specific robot is relatively unsophisticated, or that its capabilities are few, and that it is still being controlled by human controllers elsewhere, but what is important is the direction of travel.
Same with the “how will Britain be able to house tens of millions of non-Europeans without building on Green Belt and other open country?” nonsense question.
Answer: “we don’t want more people, especially non-whites, but also uncultured ‘wigger’ plebs, not to mention arrogant English/Scots/Welsh nouveaux-riches bastards and their pushy aspirational families.”
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Surely calling those idiots “intellectuals” is a little too kind? That horrible little blot, Harwood, was recently sharing, on Twitter, his revelation that Italy, on a map, looks like a boot!
Almost as good as the “advice” given to the British public in the 1980s by constipated civil servants, to the effect that, in the event of nuclear attack, British people should shelter under a stout table, “protected” by a tablecloth or blanket, and should not forget to keep safe their pension books and bank documents!
As previously blogged, the aim in the medium-term is to get as many people as possible microchipped, probably on the arm or wrist, and get them using that system for all everyday uses: NHS, shopping, travel. Those refusing will be gradually marginalized and, ultimately, probably, detained indefinitely.
Only extreme resistance now, or soon, will prevent this in Western and Central Europe, North America, Australasia, and elsewhere.
As a control mechanism, “the virus” has done most of its job. The majority of the (eg) British population have been proven to be sheep, easily corralled and controlled; in effect, brainwashed. The facemask nonsense was key in doing that.
Of course, a properly-run society would properly punish the likes of Professor Ferguson (or, indeed, laugh at him from the start, and certainly not take him seriously).
Stray thoughts about the increasingly acrid Ukraine situation
Had the Russian forces mounted a properly-planned Blitzkrieg from the start, and thus achieved their main strategic objectives within days, toppling the Jew-Zionist Kiev regime and installing a puppet government de facto over the Kiev region, over that part of Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and over the Black Sea littoral, there would have been no time for the creation of a civilian resistance, and no time for the NWO/ZOG powers of the EU, UK, and North America to respond effectively. Also, the Ukrainian civilians would not have suffered harm, certainly not on the scale that looks likely now.
In the ancient cult of Magna Mater, the candidates for initiation had at one point to wade through a literal bath of blood. Metaphorically, that is where Putin and the Russian forces now are.
Unless they are going to abandon the operation completely, which would not only be humiliating for Putin personally but disastrous for Russia strategically, they have to press on to victory, even though any victory now will be horrible and bitter.
NATO, the EU, even usually-neutral Sweden, and others, are funnelling serious armament into Ukraine now. It will be placed at the disposal of the Kiev regime.
The ground-to-air armament flooding in may deny Russia command of the skies before very long. Even now, Russia’s air force does not seem to be being used as effectively as it could be, and certainly not as ruthlessly as the Americans use theirs.
This situation can only worsen for Russia over time. The only answer will be for Russia to destroy the Kiev regime very soon, whatever it takes. The key players have to be captured or eliminated.
I tremble for the remaining civilian population of Ukraine (and their companion animals). This should never have happened, certainly not in this way.
Supplies of food and fuel must be running out in Kiev. The odds are still in favour of the Russian invaders, if they press forward.
The Russian Army has been hugely upgraded over the past 15 years, but has shown itself incapable of proper staff work and planning. It dithered for weeks (that may have been Putin’s fault), then launched an unimpressive, sluggish and “bitty” invasion that seems to have lacked elan and rigour.
In a way, this incipient debacle is reminiscent of what happened in Karelia in 1939-40.
Stalin would have been shooting generals by now. Putin cannot do that, but he has to reinvigorate this operation before it becomes a manifest and historic defeat.
How is it that a country with (one reads) 4,500 fighter aircraft cannot dominate the skies of one that has fewer than 100?
If Putin and his generals do nothing, or if they withdraw behind Russia’s frontiers, The Kiev regime will be resupplied, its forces upgraded (all paid for by NWO/ZOG states), and before long there will be NATO or NATO-proxy forces stationed only 300 miles from Moscow (Moscow is 300 miles from the Ukrainian border at the nearest point).
The logic of the above is that the Kiev regime must now be toppled by massive force, even though a victory bought at such a price in destruction and suffering could not be other than bitter and even sickening.
Ukraine— possible developments
What if Russian forces manage to control the whole area east of the Dnieper, as well as the Kiev area and the Black Sea coast? What then?
If there is a relocation of the Kiev regime to Lvov, with control over the western part of Ukraine, then NATO and the EU will flood it with arms and training staff. Russia, and Putin especially, would then have the choice of coming to some accommodation with that government, or fighting it. The Western allies would presumably keep referring to it as the Government of Ukraine de jure, even if the Russians install a Ukraine government, de facto, in Kiev.
In fact, both such regimes would only, de facto, control about half of of the whole country. Both would be supported as “de jure” governments of the whole by, and only by, their individual patron-states.
It is hard to see any such Lvov regime accepting Russian rule over a third to a half of present Ukraine, and including Kiev. On the other hand, and on present evidence, the Russian forces would seem incapable of taking the whole country, let alone holding it.
It is easy for many to talk about Ukraine as if it is smaller than it is, but Ukraine is about the same size as France. Huge. Nearly three times the size of the whole UK.
As for Kiev, with its 3 million inhabitants, it is —depending on where administrative boundaries are drawn— about the 7th-largest city by population in Europe. Indeed, if one excludes Istanbul, Moscow, and St. Petersburg, the 4th-largest.
Of course, if one includes suburbs outside strict city limits, London and Paris have even larger populations, but that would still mean that Kiev would be the 5th-largest city in Europe (excl. cities in European Turkey and European Russia), after London, Paris, Madrid, and Berlin.
The international situation can only go down from here. On the periphery, biding its time, China…
Time to repost my blog thoughts about the potential necessity of founding a new civilization on the rubble of the old…

Analysis on video
This is basically correct.
As that person is saying, Russia is not, as yet anyway, flattening everything in Ukraine, whereas the American idea, seen repeatedly, is to flatten whole cities, regardless of civilian harm.
In any case, Putin does not want to take over a flattened wasteland.The way things are going, though, he may have little choice.
Again, the cold logic seems to lead to a massive attack on the locations of the Kiev regime itself, i.e. on central Kiev, with the aim of decapitating the present government and thus starting to end any mass resistance.
