In other words, anyone posting anonymously on the Internet will be tracked down and harassed in various ways, if the poster is deemed “anti-Semitic”. On the other hand, the legion of Jew-Zionist trolls abusing people anonymously should have their identities and other details protected. That is what those bastards (tweeting above) really mean.

Is there any longer doubt that the part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer currently posing as Prime Minister is a puppet of the “New World Order”?

For once, I cannot blame Biden! What is he thinking? Anything? Maybe “they told me I would be the most powerful man on Earth, but here I am sitting listening to some idiot droning on about nonsense, and I cannot —diplomatically— just get up and leave“…

Ha ha! Justin Welby, who despite being Archbishop of Canterbury is part-Jew himself (one-quarter— the original family name was Weiler, later anglicized to Welby), and who has bent over backwards for the Jewish lobby for years, has now blotted his copybook by suggesting that the so-called “holocaust” is not the most significant event, or series of events, or possible events, in history…

That tweeter, Pollard, is editor of the Jewish Chronicle. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justin_Welby#Early_life_and_education.

All in all, Welby is an interesting character, it has to be said: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justin_Welby.

Interesting as far as it goes, that article, but the author, as a Jew, naturally does not mention the most egregious acts of “cancellation” or censorship in the UK in recent years, such as my own nominal disbarment in 2016 for having tweeted 5 entirely true tweets (mostly about Jews and part-Jews). See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; and see also https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

The author of the cited piece says that many dissidents are forced to “keep quiet” in order to avoid being “cancelled”. He does not explore the possibility that some dissidents, “cancelled”, censored, unable to express views, or put forward ideas, might decide to strike back at their imprisoners, or tormentors, or at the self-appointed “leaders” and “influencers” of the very sick society that is developing fast in the UK, USA etc. Action directe?

On the wider point, the people generally, “the plebs” if you like, do not want “authoritarianism” as such; they want “authority”, in the sense of statesmen in charge of government, rather than clowns like “Boris” and his cronies. People who know what they want for the country, and know how to get things done. Look at the part-Jew/Levantine chancer! He can do nothing except to spin fantasy islands, fantasy bridges, fantasy airports etc. Incapable of being a Prime Minister. Totally unfit for his, or any, office. Not that Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer is any better. He is equally useless, simply less colourful.

The people also want TV news that reports facts, rather than the present BBC/Sky propaganda mouthpieces.

The people also want decent and working administration, both at central and local government level.

The people want a proper NHS, a National Health Service, not a “National Covid Service” run for the benefit of those who work in it.

The people also want to be a functioning nation-state, with a basically white European population, not a multikulti, dystopian chaotic mess, kept like that for the profit and benefit of “a certain tribe”.

The above is in fact only part of the entire problem.

Budget

I have not watched much of the Budget coverage. Talking heads and/or “journalists” (System propagandists) yapping ignorantly and, all the while, smug MP or ex-MP freeloaders (such as David Gauke) seen on Sky TV or BBC talking about “wasting government money” etc (when Gauke himself —among many many others— claimed for everything he could, including tacky furnishings, TV sets, luxury hotel stays etc).

What a bunch of monkeys!

This Government has, of course “wasted money” (UK’s economic resources): £37 BILLION on the ludicrous “test and trace” nonsense alone, headed by incompetent crony Dido Harding. Something that was not even necessary in the first place. That’s more than the projected cost of even the HS2 vanity-rail white elephant.

Imagine what other could have been done with £37BN. Improving the whole rail infrastructure of the country. New hospitals. Libraries, or education generally (I mean real education, not warehousing children in schools, “taught” by ignorant teachers —very often— while the parents work, or jump through bureaucratic hoops).

£37BN works out at around £1,000 for every working-age adult in the UK. In other words, the Treasury could just have given every person in the UK about £1,000, with better results socially and economically.

To put it another way, the most expensive aircraft carrier ever built, the USS Ford, cost about £9 Billion in pounds sterling, so the UK could have had (disregarding running costs) four like that, instead of the useless, pointless, “test and trace” fiasco. Or might have had built about 37 smaller warships.

Who knows, were there not a high-level conspiracy to flood the UK with blacks and browns (the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan; see https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/), the UK might even be able to secure its borders against migration-invasion.

When you see that part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer, “Boris”, posing as Prime Minister (forget Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, and the other clowns), you know that the UK political system is terminally sick.

Criticized“? Yes, but we have seen in recent years what frightens the corrupt and the conspirators, and it is not being “criticized” in official reports.

The “Thalidomide” of our times?

Yesterday, the hugely ignorant Daily Mirror scribbler, Susie Boniface, aka “the Fleet Street Fox” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susie_Boniface] suggested, in a Mirror opinion piece, that “anti-vaxx” protesters should be imprisoned, and generally treated as terrorists. From where did that come? At any rate, an interesting straw in the wind as we approach 2022, the most significant year since 1989 (and, previously, 1956 and 1923). 33-year cycle.

How long before anyone questioning the System narrative and System policies is considered to be a “social terrorist” or “enabler”? Anyone who questions the “panicdemic” narrative. Anyone who opposes the cross-Channel or other migration-invasion. Anyone who questions the power or influence of the Jewish lobby. Anyone seeking a better society. Others…

You can see already the outline of what is taking shape. Look at the Online Harms Bill. Even less free speech than now exists. The Jewish (Zionist) lobby is behind much of the repression.

Alarming that the most powerful military-destructive machine in the world is now controlled, at least notionally, by someone who appears to be a confused, semi-demented, and possibly incontinent person, who may or may not be some kind of child abuser. One can only hope that, if Biden tries to reprise Hilary’s idea, and launch a third world war against Russia (or China), that there is some American version of a chekist standing quietly behind him, pistol always ready to administer a quick coup de grace…

Exactly. UK streets are less safe year on year, but the repression of opinion, including online opinion, is intensifying with every passing year.

As the tweeter says, “wealthy“…perhaps in fact notbeyond the dreams of avarice” (let’s not set the bar too low!) but probably worth a couple of million anyway, including the detached house in a pleasant neighbourhood etc.

“It was not painful; didn’t hurt…” Obviously not sufficiently deterred…

What gives the idiots the right to stop other people moving freely? Some weird idea that their actions will force Government to make more house insulation mandatory, or to pay for that? The protesters’ whole premise is nonsense. There is obviously a hidden agenda here, but protesters such as that retired doctor are merely pawns in someone else’s game.

Too many people are waking up. Bring on the talking heads and scribblers such as Susie Boniface, Fleet Street Fox, to call for the imprisonment of dissidents.

Note the police robots standing behind the “protester” (para-terrorist), not stopping him, not arresting him, nor even talking to him; in fact, looking “as if” they are protecting him…

In fact, the police car in that picture is also blocking the road.

Come to think of it, I have seen nothing from Susie Boniface, “Fleet Street Fox”, about treating “Insulate Britain” or Extinction Rebellion as “terrorists”. She may perhaps have done so (I tend to avoid reading her ignorant drivel), but I have anyway not seen it.

The Guardians

I see that it is possible to buy a DVD version of the 1971 British (I mistyped “Brutish”…but if the cap fits!) TV series, The Guardians [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Guardians_(British_TV_series)].

I remember watching this, as a boy of 14-15, in black and white (it was made in colour but I had my own huge and ancient b&w TV, with wooden case, and made, I should think, in the 1950s).

Looking at what little is on YouTube, and what (also not much) I can now recall, it is interesting to see the differences between the 1971 view of the near future (The Guardians was set in the 1980s) and what actually happened in the 1980s and on to 2021, 50 years after the 13 episodes of the series were shown.

There may have been those, in the early 1980s, amid the Miners’ Strike etc, who found parallels (the early paramilitarization of some police, and the use of SAS soldiers dressed as police).

Looking back now, one still finds parallels, but also great differences. The first is the relative quiescence of the public now. No, or very few, violent demonstrations, few big marches (and even fewer violent ones) compared to the 1970s.

Now, we have the Internet, and all its issues. That was not a factor, for the public, until the mid-1990s at earliest. The authorities have far wider powers in practice now, and use them.

In 1971, the “Guardian” force was seen as paramilitary, but in 2021 the forces of repression use plainclothes operatives (mostly), and not decrees (as such) but “laws” nodded through by a rubberstamp Parliament— look at the Online Harms Bill being put through Parliament right now, and with no resistance at all from a useless “Opposition” led by a Jewish-lobby puppet.

Also, 1971 people would not have taken seriously the idea that a virus which (supposedly) kills about 1 in 1,000 of the population would enable the UK Government to impose wide-ranging curbs on the most basic civil liberties (eg freedom to travel —even by car— in 2020); or that the kind of people who were most likely to resist actively in 1971 would become, in 2021, virtue-signalling “we’re good citizens, we are” serfs.

Interesting short documentary about the Afrika Korps in Libya and French Equatorial Africa (now, Chad, in part) in the early 1940s

Maybe.

For me, life under “Covid” or, more accurately, under the toytown police state imposed (using “the virus” as excuse and battering ram) in 2020 and 2021, though irritating, has been no more stressful than before, possibly because I have not been in Bar practice —or other daily activity requiring one to be on the qui vive— for over a decade now.

I laughed to see that the pathetic rump of the New Statesman thinks that “normality” is returning. I suppose they mean cretinous persons are again allowed to cram into loud unpleasant “clubs” etc.

Strange to think that, half a century ago, the New Statesman was a politically-important publication. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Statesman

Vaccine passports, the (continuing though ebbing) facemask nonsense, the pointlessness of travel under the plethora of (UK and other) “rules” and laws, the ever-worsening migration-invasion, supermarkets with gaps on the shelves, a “British” Cabinet where almost all the Cabinet ministers are Jews, Indians, Pakistanis, Kurds etc. This is “normal”?

All that, and still newer restrictions and repressions are planned, not least the “Online Harms Bill”, which may be law (for what that is worth) by early 2022. Then, goodbye to any but the most colourless “free speech” online.

2022, the first year of the next 33-year cycle. Most significant year since 1989.

The Great Reset, allied to the Great Replacement of whites by blacks, browns, Chinese etc, then eventually the mixed-race population promoted by Coudenhove-Kalergi.

Patriotic Alternative broadcast

I was just listening to the above, and still am (as I write). Worth a listen, though I cannot say that I am getting a lot from it. At least Mark Collett is doing whatever he can, while he can.

Guest on that show is one Thomas Balogh, leading light of the National Justice Party of the USA.

Of course, these days people cannot say much even on Internet “radio”, without being harassed, or even arrested and prosecuted: Alison Chabloz, the persecuted singer-songwriter and satirist, was actually imprisoned because (partly because) she took part in a discussion on a podcast of that sort.

I do not usually bother to listen to such discussions, but happen to be listening to that one, so have posted the link so that others can decide what they think of it.

Incidentally, they discuss the UK System “Prevent” programme. I blogged about it three years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/05/30/one-mans-extremism-is-another-mans-struggle-for-liberty-and-justice/.

[Re. that podcast by Collett: I listened, in the end, to about 45 mins out of the 2 hours].

“Thoughts out of season”

Today, grey skies, dry, with little wind. In the neighbourhood where I now live, no noise at all. A strange feeling of stasis. Am I extrapolating too far in extending that to the society as a whole? Maybe not. Calm before the storm?

The latest “lockdown” has shut down society, economy, and politics to an extent never before seen in the UK, as far as I know, together with the same in early/mid 2020. As far as System politics is concerned, there is a clownish but still quite sinister UK Government, its sinister nature not entirely mitigated by its incompetence.

The official Opposition does not really exist, and is simply supporting Government policy (unsurprising in view of the fact that both parties are ZOG/NWO-dominated and that there may be no General Election until 2024), and Parliament itself is only pretending to sit. The Chamber of the House of Commons now only has a token number of MPs present when officially sitting.

The System msm has only one story— “the virus”. Everything else is all but ignored.

Under the surface, though, there is movement. We hear that half a million small and medium-size businesses are going under now or soon. Fools (including highly-paid “expert” fools in the City of London and msm) think that almost all of that hurt can be mitigated by “Government help”. Really? For how long?

In the end, notwithstanding government borrowing, the government of a country only has such financial resources as are the product of its economy. The UK economy has been partly, in fact largely, shut down for much of the past year. Now again, and until a date uncertain in March, April, or even later.

So far, the various “furlough”, no-eviction, and rent holiday measures have softened the blow, but they will not continue indefinitely.

The UK is heading for a massive economic and political crisis. There must arise a social-national movement to lead the way out of all this nonsense.

Online censorship

Heard a discussion on the Radio 4 Today Programme. “Baroness” Nicky Morgan [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicky_Morgan]. and some American Jew whose name and job I did not catch.

Nicky Morgan is promoting an Online Harms Bill, whch will cut down even the limited free speech online that still exists. The American Jew mentioned wanted even more strict “regulation”. There was (quelle surprise) no-one speaking up for freedom of expression online, unless is included the presenter.

The presenter asked the killer question, as I remembered it: “what if Twitter or Facebook decide to take down Nicky Morgan’s account, and perhaps decide to retain Vladimir Putin’s? You have no right of appeal anywhere...” Nicky Morgan did not even address that question, which is the most important.

As I have been blogging, speaking and (ironically, before the Jew lobby had me expelled from Twitter in 2018) tweeting for years, the point is that there has been “privatization of public space”.

The huge transnational quasi-monopolies such as Twitter, Facebook, ebay, Amazon, provide the citizen with no rights qua citizen, only worthless contractual rights as “customer”. There is no right of appeal to being expelled, not even in-house (worth a dime), let alone any right of appeal to an outside body such as a tribunal or court.

I suppose that the organized Jewish lobby, and their dupes, think it wonderful that the “far-right” “extremists” (so-called) may soon (as with the present Twitter/Parler/GAB situation) have nowhere to go online. When you take away the possibility to protest and put forward views and ideas peacefully, you open the door to violence, as John F. Kennedy said.

I agree. In many ways, the old DDR (which I saw, briefly, just a couple of days, in 1988) was a real police state, and had been since Soviet occupation in 1945. On the other hand, the once-free UK is also getting that way: “laws” (and “advice”/”guidance” with almost the force of law), never really validated, or nodded swiftly through an elected dictatorship “Parliament”; mass media all singing the same tune in various ways; dissidents arrested if they dare to protest on the streets or even online; young scapegoats and teenaged sacrificial lambs (often with problems of autism etc) sent to prison for years on trumped-up “preparation of acts of terror” charges. Satirical singers prosecuted for irritating Jews.

Tweeter “@cashandcarrots” has obviously missed the recent “deplatforming” of so many people with “unapproved” views: in the UK, USA, Australia etc. Not just people complaining about the behaviour of Jews, or about the continuing black/brown migration-invasion, but people examining how “the virus” came about, and what is the real hidden agenda behind it and the vaccine campaign.

Hardy ha ha…

That tweet seems to be at odds with Lewis’s tweets to Alison Chabloz and others! See below:

[a few of the abusive messages that caused self-promoting Jew solicitor Mark Lewis to be fined and censured by the Disciplinary Tribunal of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority; he fled to Israel shortly afterwards]

Does it work with other types of skull?

Twitter has been fooling around with followings for years. When I was expelled in 2018, I had 3,000 followers. I suppose that, today, that would probably be about 6,000. In fact, many others told me that they had tried to follow but could not. There was shadowbanning etc. Meanwhile, there are those, such as “Mark Lewis Lawyer” (see above) and his one-time wife (they divorced after a year), washed-up local radio presenter Caroline Feraday, who bought tens of thousands of “followers” about 7-8 years ago.

Many Twitter accounts are Potemkin villages, with little behind them.

Twitter is basically a waste of time now, though I find it convenient to use the tweets of others in my blog.

That part-Jew clown is just posing as Prime Minister, as I have blogged since he took office.

Leaving aside the racial-cultural aspect, the prominent footballer, Rashford, is right to say that the feeding of poorer children is a complete disgrace.

Historical note

Paula Hitler’s 1957 statement:

Gentlemen!

Never forget this: Your names will long be forgotten even before your bodies have rotted away in the earth. But the name Adolf Hitler will still be a light in the darkness.
You cannot murder him by drowning his memory in your sick-buckets and you cannot strangle him with your filthy, ink-stained fingers. His name exists forever in hundreds of thousands of souls. You are far too insignificant to even touch him.

He loved Germany, he fretted over Germany. When he fought for honour and respect he fought for German Honour, for respect for Germany and when there was nothing left, he gave his life for Germany.

What have you given so far? Which one of you would give his life for Germany? The only things you care about are riches, power and never ending luxurious living. When you think of Germany, you think of indulging your senses without responsibility, without cares?

Trust me on this: The Fuhrer’s utter unselfishness in word and deed alone guarantees his immortality. The fact that the bitter fight for Germany’s greatness wasn’t crowned by success, like for example Cromwell’s in Britain, has a lot to do with the mentality of the people involved.

On the one hand the Englishman’s character is essentially unfair, ruled by jealousy, self-importance, and a lack of consideration. But he never forgets he is an Englishman, loyal to his people and to his crown. On the other hand, the German with his need for recognition is never first and foremost a German.

Therefore it doesn’t matter to you, you insignificant beings, if you destroy the entire nation. Your only guiding thought will always be, me first – me second – me third.

In your worthlessness you will never think of the welfare of the nation – and with that pitiful philosophy you wish to prevent the immortality of a giant?

What I wrote down immediately after the war has been proven to be correct. That my convictions are true is evident even as late as 1957.

Signed, Paula Hitler, Berchtesgaden, May, 1st. 1957

The War on Freedom of Expression in the UK, USA and EU States

Introduction

Recent events have sharpened my already-keen interest in freedom of expression. On Twitter, the premier socio-political short-comment website, those regarded in the USA as “alt-right” have had their “blue ticks” removed, signalling that they are not very approved of by whomever decides policy at Twitter. In the UK, several people are currently about to be put on trial for saying or singing things of which the Jewish Zionists disapprove. Also in the UK, David Icke has just (17 November 2017) had his event at the Old Trafford facility owned by Manchester United (itself owned by a clan of American Jew-Zionists) cancelled. In the EU, the already considerable online censorship in Germany, France, Scandinavia has been intensified and new EU rules control online platforms as never before (and behind such restrictions, once again, “them”…).

Many reading this will be aware that, by reason of the activities of a pack of Jew-Zionists, I was disbarred in 2016. I have blogged about that and may do so again. Even before those events, I was prevented, I think in 2011 or 2012, from posting book reviews on Amazon (UK and US) because one (at first only one) obsessed Jew complained to the Jewish Chronicle about me. Other Jews joined in, the original one trolling anyone who liked my reviews (enough liked them to propel me to the top 40 reviewers), leaving stupid and unpleasant comments, many both defamatory and untrue). Once the Jewish Chronicle and other Jew-Zionist organizations piled in, Amazon caved in…

In fact, this censorship, largely exercized by the Jewish-Zionist element, predates the Internet era. I recall trying to advertize a small organization in The Spectator, around 1978. I was advised that I had to supply a precis of its political view. I did that, only to be told that my advertisement would not be printed. Same at that bastion of well-heeled and hypocritical Home Counties free-speech-ism, Private Eye. This at a time when these publications carried both “Conservative” and “socialist”, even Communist adverts!

The Internet opened up a window of freedom of expression, but “they” are rapidly moving to close it. Free speech is being shut down.

USA

The free speech provisions of the US Constitution are as outdated and superseded as those governing arms in private hands and other matters. At present, with certain exceptions, the State (meaning government) will not (there are exceptions) criminalize something said by an individual in the street, on a placard, in print, but that does not prevent that individual losing his job (if an employer dislikes what he has said or written, or where the employer has been pressured by external forces, such as the Jewish Lobby, with its campaigns of boycott etc).  The US Constitution, in other words, cannot save the individual from losing his job, home, family, if his employer decides to penalize him because of his “free expression”.

Likewise, the writer who writes that which is disliked by the Jewish lobby will not be arrested in the USA, but may find that he cannot get books published by mainstream publishing houses. The academic who tries to expand the boundaries may find that tenure is denied, or employment terminated.

Now, in the Internet age of social media, we find that the major platforms for freedom of expression are not properly public, but private organizations, private enterprises, which can decide on almost any basis to prohibit any named individual from posting. Amazon, ebay (which e.g. allows Soviet but not German Third Reich memorabilia), Facebook, Twitter. These organizations are either owned or largely owned or strongly influenced (and staffed) by Jewish Zionists.

I spoke in February 2017 at the London Forum about, inter alia, the “privatization of public space” in this regard. Now, the “alt-right” personality Richard Spencer has echoed me from the United States, talking about how the fora of the past were public, but the (online) “fora” of the present age private, thus able to exclude those whose views are not approved by the owners of the websites (or the commercial advertizers thereon).

UK and EU

The above “privatization of the forum” (or fora) applies not only in the USA, but in the UK and other EU states. The EU has already (in most states) criminalized “holocaust” “denial” (examination and/or revision of that historical narrative). It has also forged ahead (under Jewish-Zionist control or influence) with plans to penalize Twitter, Facebook etc if the “wrong” symbols, cartoons, views are hosted.

In the UK, several people are now facing trial at the instigation of Jewish-Zionists: Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, others. Whatever happens to them will be of significance for freedom of expression.

We now hear that Twitter is planning further purges, this month (November 2017), and on or about 22 December. Those changes may well mean the end of Twitter as a useful place online on which to exchange ideas. We shall see. I myself am half-expecting to be removed.

In the end, the consolation must be to remember that no revolution or takeover of any state has ever happened via social media, though online propaganda has helped one or two offline campaigns to achieve success. Boots on the ground are what count.

Update, 23 December 2018

I was expelled from Twitter in mid-2018. No reason given (beyond weasel words), no appeal, no clarification. Many others have gone the same way. The only consolation has been the realization of how totally pointless and self-defeating tweeting is!

Update, 13 January 2021

Since my last update, over 2 years ago, the war on freedom of expresson has intensified. See my later blog posts.
