On this day a year ago
I have to say, if immodestly, that that 2022 blog post has held up quite well overall, though with one important exception— the ability of the Kiev regime to fight on, backed by Western powers.

That happened in India but, as not infrequently blogged about, the “panicdemic” also liberated a whole load of mentally-unstable mugs and loonies in the UK. In fact, I noticed only yesterday, in the local Waitrose, two or three idiotic elderly women wearing facemasks, two of whom (maybe all three, but two that I saw) also wearing them in the not-busy car park. I wonder how old and filthy those masks were; possibly from 1-2 years ago, and replete with germs.
Is that “Waco“, or “wacko“?
In fact, the “hollow Earth theory” (or theories) continue to attract devotees: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollow_Earth. There is some connection to the theories of Hans Horbiger [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanns_H%C3%B6rbiger] known as the Welteislehre [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welteislehre] or “Doctrine of World Ice”.
It is surprising what some people believe. A friend of mine was visiting people she knew in Switzerland about 30 years ago; they went over the border to Germany to see mutual acquaintances. It turned out that one old fellow, a former Waffen SS sergeant, had become obsessed by the idea that Hitler had withdrawn in 1945 to a redoubt under the ice in Antarctica, and from where (he thought) it was possible to access the interior of the Earth.
More from the newspapers
“Ukraine has launched a series of surprise attacks on Russian troops and supply lines in Mariupol – the first strikes on the city since it fell to the Kremlin last May after a brutal three-month siege that left the key port in ruins.
There were at least 18 strikes last week over three successive days – the most recent on Friday night – in a significant ratcheting up of Ukrainian efforts to retake its captured southern corridor, the strip of coastal land that links to Crimea.
There is speculation the explosions – which took place amid Kyiv’s warnings of a Russian offensive to coincide with the war’s first anniversary – may have involved newly donated long-range US rockets with a range of almost 100 miles.“
So the Kiev regime now has American missiles capable of hitting targets 100 miles away? Moscow itself is only 300 miles from the nearest point of the border with Ukraine. Where will this end? I see no sign of anything other than escalation. At the end of the day, the Russian side may take, perhaps literally, the nuclear option, and go on to flatten Kiev, Kharkov, and other major cities, then move into the empty space with a rebuilding programme and Russian settlers.
It would help if most of our police were not as thick as two short planks…
“Desperate defence chiefs are allowing ex-soldiers to rejoin the Army after they were sacked for fighting, theft or going AWOL.
Troops who were medically discharged will also be allowed to rejoin, and will be able to keep any compensation they received when they were forced to retire.
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has also said that soldiers who left the Forces after taking redundancy more than two years ago will likely be able to rejoin without having to pay back any cash.
It is understood that those who were sacked for smoking cannabis or who tested positive for drugs such as cocaine or amphetamines might also be reconsidered.“
Thick and irresponsible Ben Wallace, former Guards captain now wanting to play the field-marshal, finds himself embarrassingly short of bodies, “for a general without troops is naked indeed“…
When will ex-captain Ben lead his depleted force of drug-abusing, drink-sodden brawlers and arthritics to Crimea against the several million-strong (inc. reserves) Russian Army? Vorwarts! Wir fahren nach Osten! Ha ha!
Incidentally, the “readers’ comments” under that Daily Mail report are both amusing and telling.
Meanwhile, Army bases are still being closed, demolished, then turned into hutches for immigrants and others: https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/23327909.ripon-army-barracks-converted-housing-estate/.
I have very little interest, either way, in this situation. The ex-ISIS recruit should not be in the UK, nor have been born in the UK in the first place. The same goes for most if not all of the non-whites here. The endless talk about her, merely one out of millions, is just a bad joke.
The idea that the “free” (Jew-Zionist permeated) Press/msm in the USA comprise anything other than NWO/ZOG propaganda is delusionary. I recall being in the USA in 1990-1991 when the USA was preparing to fight Iraq for the first time. Wall-to-wall propaganda, much of it a pack of not very clever but still effective lies (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nayirah_testimony, straight from the WW1 and WW2 atrocity-propaganda and/or “holocaust” hoax playbook).
Effective propaganda when relayed to a public unable or unwilling to think for itself, or critically, or sceptically, a public without much if any knowledge of history, or even basic world geography (I met Americans in New York and New Jersey who were unaware where even American states, such as Wisconsin, were located!).
That main tweet (despite being by pro-Zelensky msm drone John Sweeney) does show the localized nature of the conflict. Most of Ukraine is only affected indirectly by the fighting in the southeast, though of course the electricity blackouts must have made life very difficult for many.
Wars usually are localized. Most areas, most of the time, are not like the Tet Offensive, or Stalingrad. Even in the days of the bombing of the UK during WW2 (mostly mid-1940 to mid-1941), large areas of the UK were unaffected (directly). That was even true of London.
If you visit London today, even Central London, you see that, despite postwar redevelopment, most of it dates from before WW2. Destruction from bombing affected more the dockland areas and those districts around the docks (City of London, inner East London etc).
The “free” and “democratic” Ukraine of the Jew Zelensky…
In any case, even were the absurd idea that Putin wants to invade Central and Western Europe true, how could he, looking at how hard he is finding it even to hold on to about a tenth of Ukraine territory?
Interesting, in view of the activities of the British Army’s 77 Brigade. One of the most extreme pro-war and anti-Russia MPs, Tobias Ellwood, is said to hold the rank of (Reserves) Colonel in that unit.
I have blogged to that effect myself, more than once.
“Pseudo-science“? At one time the theories of Galileo, Pasteur, Tesla, and many others, were called “pseudo-science”… Where is the line drawn? 1960s CIA “remote viewing” experiments? Rupert Sheldrake? Uri Geller?
notes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Sheldrake; https://www.sheldrake.org/; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uri_Geller.
How time flies! Rupert Sheldrake is now 80. I remember him being described as a maverick young scientist; that must have been sometime around 1980.
In fact, I see that Uri Geller is now 76. In or about 1971, when he bought one of the largest houses in Sonning, Berkshire (where George Clooney now has a house, and where I was at school 1970-1973), he was still in his mid-twenties; he was on UK TV sometimes, bending spoons etc.
The usual “democratic” methods will not stop that sort of thing. This is a war, not a debate.
