What goes around comes around

I heard, on the radio, a weasel from the Israeli Defence Force [IDF] saying how moral and ethical the Israelis are, because before they drop bombs or attack with missiles a residential apartment building, the Jews drop a lesser bomb on it as a “warning”, and sometimes drop leaflets etc in a “get out now” threat. For the Jew, that apparently made it OK…No thought that most of the residents of such a building were uninvolved civilians: families, children, companion animals etc. The Israeli Jews mix brutality and hypocrisy in a most unpleasant way.

BBC World Service

Heard a couple of other reports. The first was a laughably-poor one about repatriation of historical artefacts and so on. The BBC presenter, a black man from London (but from a family background in what is now Zambia) admitted that, prior to the programme, he had never heard of the Elgin Marbles! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elgin_Marbles

Elgin Marbles British Museum.jpg
[the Elgin Marbles, British Museum, London]

Incidentally, the presentation of the Marbles at the British Museum looks more aesthetically-pleasing than when I was last there nearly 30 years ago. Maybe my memory is at fault, though.

On the same BBC World Service show, another African made the point that the wealth of what is now Zambia, the mineral wealth mainly, was “plundered” by the British, without which “plunder” the “Zambians” (i.e. the Africans then living there and their descendants) would have been able to develop a better, more prosperous (etc) society. Ha ha! What nonsense! For one thing, the Africans had no idea of how to mine, refine, or use the product of all that. They did not have any idea that there was anything useful under the ground on which they walked.

The other BBC World Service feature was about a cafe in Innsbruck called Cafe Schindler, once owned by Jews who were bought out (at an undervalue, supposedly) in 1938, after the plebiscite and Anschluss that joined Austria to Germany . They decamped to London.

The granddaughter of the 1930s owner (which owner established or bought the cafe in 1922) has researched her family history extensively. She discovered that her father, who was a fraudulent Jew businessman, and who had said that he had been beaten up in Innsbruck in 1938 by “Nazis”, had in reality been living in London by then (aged 12). In other words, he had told “porkies”…not very kosher!

Apparently, the woman’s father found that a fake “holocaust” connection was a good excuse (in both London and Austria) against allegations of business fraud in the 1960s and 1970s, though he was eventually imprisoned in England. His daughter claimed that one of the reasons why her father never paid his business creditors was because he spent all his money or much of it on lawyers, trying to get “restitution” for value allegedly taken by (yes, you guessed it) “the Nazis”.

Apparently, in the 1960s or 1970s, her father also demanded (and received) non-existent arrears of “rent” for the seven years from 1938 to 1945 from the National Socialist, Franz Hofer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Hofer], who had bought the Cafe Schindler in 1938, and who had turned it into a favourite place for the Innsbruck National Socialists. The “rent” was paid to the Jew by Hofer (who may have been unwell and who died in 1975) “unofficially”, in cash. A form of blackmail, really.

The cafe still exists, under a similar name.

An interesting feature, that made me laugh, was that the presenter seemed to take some of the assertions made as truthful, despite having been made by a Jewish business cheat whose own daughter admits he was a fraudster and serial liar. In fact, I found the daughter’s account rather naive in places, as when she said that her family had to sell in 1938 in order to avoid “being shipped off to Poland“. Well, Germany only invaded Poland in 1939, so…

I am ideologically far from Matthew Parris, but I notice that many of the points in his article have been made by me in my blogging of past days, months, and years. My conclusions are not exactly the same, however…

Rather poor from a well-known journalist. Guderian [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinz_Guderian] was a German officer who was not, however, a member of the NSDAP (National Socialist party). In fact, most German officers were not NSDAP members, though about a third of junior officers were, by 1945.

Krivoshein [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semyon_Krivoshein] however was a member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union [CPSU]. Almost all Soviet officers were, particularly those who, holding the rank of major or above, were considered to be members of the nomenklatura [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nomenklatura].

Hitchens, despite making equivalence between the Reich and the Soviet Union, always seems to me to have more genuine animus against the German Reich, possibly (I speculate) because of his own part-Jewish background [see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/].

Well, why not? After all, Wall Street has a “bull” statue [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charging_Bull], so why should Rockefeller Center not have a “bullshit” statue?…

This must be a first. At almost any time in the near or historical past, a “British” Prime Minister who had handed down against him a County Court money judgment would probably have been forced to resign. It would certainly have been a huge embarrassment. Now? So unworried is the part-Jew chancer now posing as Prime Minister that he has just ignored it for six months!

As I have blogged previously, Boris-idiot has weaponized his own incompetence and sleaze. Almost nothing that he does, or fails to do, counts against him, because the public simply do not expect correct or even ordinarily decent behaviour from “Boris”.

This (the fact that the UK gave Poland in 1939 a “guarantee” that it did not honour and indeed was unable from the start to honour) still resonated when I was last in Poland in 1989.

My answer to the rhetorical question posed by Hitchens is that the Jews (primarily in the sense of “international Jewry” or “the Zionists’ leaders”) wanted war, to destroy Hitler and National Socialism. In Britain, in its ruling circles, there was a “War Party” fronted by Churchill, paid for secretly by the Jews, and that “War Party” included leading civil servants such as Vansittart [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Vansittart,_1st_Baron_Vansittart] and leading System politicians, such as not only Churchill but also Duff Cooper and others [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duff_Cooper].

On the wider point, I have noticed over the years that Jews in the UK are very eager to get their children into Cambridge, Oxford or, at the earlier stage and if they can afford it, Eton. It is a kind of colonization.

Hitler and the NSDAP were not Zionists; Zionists were not National Socialists. Having said that, there was a community of interest insofar as Hitler wanted Jews out of Germany and out of Europe, while the transnational Jew-Zionist lobby wanted as many Jews as possible to go to British Mandate Palestine in order to gradually colonize the territory and be able to confront the existing Arab inhabitants (and then to dispossess them).

The Zionists therefore treated with the 1933-1945 German Government and particularly (though not exclusively) the SS. Something that both sides prefer to forget these days. The SS and NSDAP no longer exist in their original form, but the Zionists and their post-1948 government, in what is now Israel, certainly do exist. For them, such history is better concealed or buried (or banned under the fake “international definition” of “antisemitism”).

Very true. Look at the self-described “Left” on Twitter etc. It puts forward no socialist or even social programme, no socialist policies to speak of, just “black lives matter” nonsense, “LGBTQXYZ” nonsense, pro-facemask and pro-lockdown nonsense.

What a contrast with the years 1917-1956, or 1956-1989!

The self-describing “Left” now has, as a main aim, “deplatforming” nationalist and other “influencers” on social media etc. In that world, getting someone expelled from Twitter (as happened to me in 2018, the expulsion procured by Jews, but applauded by the Twitter pseudo-socialists) counts as a major victory.

The “nationalist” and allied side of the house is little better. For the “alt-Right” and “Alt-lite” purported nationalists (in the UK), the UKIP/Brexit Party types, what matters is changing a red passport for a blue one, or fishing rights in the Channel, or at least pretending to support free speech. For many of the more solid nationalists, even social nationalists, what matters is trying to fight the social media “deplatforming” by complaining (mainly), or tweeting, blogging (yes, I do not exclude my own efforts), or vlogging.

What should matter to us is having a solid social-national programme; after which, having a solid socio-political movement; after which, having “boots on the ground”…

That tweeter understands.

This is not a “debate”. This is not a “disagreement”. This is the precursor to a civil war or (perhaps more accurately described) social war. Before the American Civil War started, in 1861, the cannon at Fort Sumter, South Carolina (in the harbour at Charleston, a lovely city which I myself, long ago, visited several times) opened fire. That signalled the conflict about to start.

Likewise, in 1917, a naval gun on the cruiser Aurora opened fire, signalling the start of the Bolshevik seizure of power in revolutionary Petrograd, and the effective start of the Russian Civil War.

What we see now, on social media, is the equivalent.

The elected dictatorship

Yesterday in Parliament, the latest Government kill-the-economy measures were voted through, 291 votes to 78. Most of the 78 were Conservative Party dissidents, though 15 Labour Party MPs (16 if including Jeremy Corbyn, now sitting as Independent) also voted against: https://votes.parliament.uk/Votes/Commons/Division/916#noes

The Labour Party as a whole abstained. Had it voted against the Government, the Government majority would have been in single figures, though probably still sufficient to win, depending on whether others might have been emboldened.

The Opposition, under Starmer, is lacklustre and without purpose.

A powerful polemic

I may not agree with everything that is said elsewhere, on various topics, by the writer of that piece, and I doubt that she would agree with me on much (if only as a kneejerk reaction), but that piece is worth reading.

The existence on Earth of Jesus Christ, and then the “Aetherization of the Blood”, gave the Jews the chance to change their karmic future. St. Paul (former Saul) and others of that era understood that. Most Jews rejected that chance, just as they (as represented by the mob in Jerusalem) were given the chance to have Jesus Christ released and pardoned, but preferred to choose Barabbas, the Jewish Zealot and cut-throat (the archetype of the aggressive Jew-Zionists of the present age). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barabbas

I think that even Hitler underestimated how destructive Jews (in this case under the “Israeli” label) can be when given power.

Even msm TV reports make it clear how destructive the “lockdown”/shutdown/facemask nonsense has been.

I saw, just yesterday, an interview with and report about what seemed to be a marquee and catering enterprise in (I think) Northern Ireland, killed off by Government “virus” nonsense. This year was the first it failed to make a good profit.

Now its losses have meant insolvency and liquidation. 40 employees have now lost their jobs. Many face poverty, some homelessness, as a result. Now scale that up to millions.

Companies large and small are now insolvent. In huge numbers.

Again, a huge chance for social nationalism to seize the agenda.

I have been blogging for some time about how the new “police state” is a collaboration between the State and transnational companies (along with malicious special interest lobbies such as the Jew-Zionist lobby), rather than the old-style Stalinist model, or if you like the “Latin American” model.

Incidentally, take a look at that mixed-race person in the photo. That is one Vaughan Gething [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaughan_Gething], the Health Minister of the devolved Welsh Government. The Great Replacement, personified…

Peter Hitchens may be right in principle here, but there is little mileage in being pointlessly obstructive to uniformed patrolmen. When I was about 21 or 22, that is back in about 1978, I was walking late at night through a town in one or the more urbanized parts of Surrey, having hitch-hiked there (I did that a lot at that time), and was about halfway to my destination (Reigate Hill) when a police car came alongside.

The policeman in the passenger seat asked where I was going and what I had in my attache case. I answered his first question and, as to the second, answered “books on occultism”. Incredulous smiles from the constabulary. The policeman got out and asked me to open the case. I cannot recall now whether the first book he saw was Gareth Knight’s A Practical Guide to Qabalistic Symbolism or Israel Regardie’s The Tree of Life— A Study in Magic. Whichever it was, it was enough to satisfy the curiosity of Plod.

No doubt, when back in the police canteen, they regaled their cohorts with the story of the odd young man carrying a case of obscure books around the town after midnight.

It happens. One of my one-time schoolmasters said that the police had once stopped him on Westminster Bridge, also late at night, and asked him what he had in his duffle bag (this was when the IRA were bombing London in the early 1970s). He replied “a concrete gnome“, and briefly faced the irritation of the police… until the bag was searched, only to verify his story. It happens.

Boris-idiot, someone who has plotted all his life to become Prime Minister, but who has no beliefs, no ideology to speak of, no religion, not even any plans or ideas, unless you include those 12 year old schoolboy ideas of bridges over the ocean etc.

Just a big nothing. An onion, or an outsize matrioshka, with nothing in the middle.

Jews are always very “brave” when in a group, or anonymous. When they are stood up too, though, they quickly change into the perennial Jewish “victim”. Not only in occupied Palesine, but also in occupied UK and elsewhere. Look at the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” criminals. Silverman (now at @ssilvuk) , Applebaum (now under @grubstreetsteve and also —in contravention of Twitter’s terms of service— at @rattus2384); Glasman, others…

They gleefully trolled non-Jews sadistically and frequently, using pseudonyms. They made malicious complaints to Twitter, Facebook, the police etc. When unmasked, and then exposed in open court (in the Alison Chabloz case), suddenly they are whining Jew “victims”, and demanding police protection. Very typical.

Whatever the immediate rights and wrongs, it is clear that the USA is heading towards a civil war situation somewhere down the line: racial, ethnic, demographic generally, socio-economic, cultural, ideological. Not clear cut, but with some red lines here and there.

The fact is that, while it is not a completely clear-cut situation, you can “buy justice” in the UK, in the sense that having an expensive legal team in a criminal or civil case does make it more likely that your side will win. Not always, but more often than not. In the Rebekah Brooks/Charlie Brooks case, the verdict was almost as clearly bought as if the judge and jury had been bought (which, to be clear, did not happen, though).

To say that Rebekah Brooks and her husband were “lucky” to be acquitted would be an understatement. A stunning success for the defence Counsel and solicitors; apparently, it all cost Murdoch £64M!

Most of these and similar job losses in the UK could have been avoided simply by having no “lockdown” (shutdown), by this government not scaring the population out of their collective skin about a condition that is killing maybe 1 person out of every 2,000 in the UK, by not imposing a toytown police state (eg the facemask nonsense), and so on. This is, largely, a government-caused recession and employment disaster.

NOT ONE HEALTHY CHILD IN THE UK HAS DIED FROM CORONAVIRUS

Slowly, very slowly, the truth emerges: “lockdown” was crazy. The toytown police state was legally invalid and carried out by Britain’s police in excess of their powers even disregarding the invalid “laws” supposedly authorizing those police actions. The facemask nonsense is a complete waste of time as well as being an attempt to control the population.

Almost all people who are healthy are not getting any serious complaints even if infected. Almost all people under 60 are not getting serious complaints even if infected. As testing discovers thousands of “new cases” per day, most show no symptoms; very few show symptoms beyond a sore throat or cough lasting a week or so, the hospital admission numbers are falling to almost zero, and the death rate is now at zero.

Here, Peter Hitchens is very naive. Jon Cruddas [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Cruddas] is the sort of MP occasionally found, who trumpets himself as an intellectual, but who not only produces little of interest intellectually, but also fails to be useful in any executive role. Others of the type include Frank Field [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Field_(British_politician)].

Look at Cruddas: too scared in the past to put himself forward seriously as a contender for the Labour leadership. His publications are a mish-mash of semi-Marxism and “Vatican 2” Roman Catholicism. He is a member of Labour Friends of Israel. Despite being a Roman Catholic, he is pro-abortion. Despite making vague anti-mass immigration noises, his contributions have been little more than hand-wringing bleating.

Cruddas lives with his wife [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Healy,_Baroness_Healy_of_Primrose_Hill] (a Labour Party drone now elevated to “baroness”) in Notting Hill; not a crime, but let’s just say that the couple have done “rather well” out of the Labour Party and the taxpayers…oh, and Cruddas was stupid enough to get caught (and convicted for) driving without MOT or insurance in 2012.

An encounter in Waitrose

An encounter in Waitrose” sounds almost like “bloodshed at the Nell Gwynn Tea Rooms“, as mentioned by Basil Fawlty in Fawlty Towers. Not much of an incident, but it was telling all the same.

I went to pay at Waitrose, wearing my facemask, as mandated by Boris-idiot (without it, I should be unable to get past the dozy Handmaid’s Tale militia who now almost invariably loiter outside). I make sure that my nose is above the mask, both for convenience and to show at least restrained contempt for the facemask nonsense, the Government, and the scared rabbits who take it all terribly seriously.

So I go to pay, and the cashier (one I had not seen before, a fat woman in her forties, wearing a thick mask-muzzle) indicated to me that I should pull up my mask! The sheer presumption of it! Well, I did not want to have the sort of near-violent (if only from me!) altercation with a woman as I had had a few weeks ago with some Chinese student nuisance, so I made a gesture of touching the mask, and waved my hand as if to say “Thank you. Repeat F.O.”

The woman did not give up (a characteristic of the busybody type) and said “it’s to protect me“, to which (if I say so myself) I was too polite to counter with “I’m shopping, not screwing you“.

After that, I packed my shopping, paid, and left.

Instructive, because it proves how deep the fear propaganda has gone. That woman was herself both wearing a mask and largely behind a perspex screen!

It makes one realize that, under other circumstances, such a woman might well herd dissenters into a labour camp, or report to the Stasi. Whatever.

People thought that I was joking or being hyperbolic when saying that this most Jewish of “British” governments would be the most destructive. Now look…

Society, in its essence, is being eroded.

The people are afraid, many of them, of their own shadows, the retail sector based on shopping streets is on its knees, travel and tourism is on its knees (not because of “the virus” but because a stupid UK government keeps adding new countries to lists of those requiring quarantine (ineffective self-quarantine, at that).

Yesterday, a passenger supposedly infected with this virus (that only kills one person out of every two thousand persons in the UK) was dragged off a Ryanair flight at Luton or Stansted by a full team of goons wearing biohazard suits and helmets! This country really has gone ****ing mad.

Every day, we hear of large companies getting rid of hundreds, even thousands, of employees. Small shops are shutting by the thousand.

No-one is actually dying of (or even with) “the virus” now in the UK, and hospital admissions are falling daily, yet this government of clowns is keeping on keeping on…Reminiscent of the famous definition of insanity.

The economy is going to fall further. Added to that, we have the inability of this government of clowns to manage Brexit properly.

The next two or three years will present social-nationalism with its best opportunity since the 1930s. There must be a credible organization to lead it. By 2022-2023, the British people will be ready for something new. They will be desperate for something new. The door will lie open before us.

The Imperial Vacuum in the Middle East and Near East, and Its Consequences

Initial Thoughts

I have been reading about what appears to have been the appalling and unusually cruel murder of a dissident Saudi journalist, supposedly cut up while still alive by some kind of Saudi Arabian “security” team in the Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul.

This news item made me once again muse on the unsatisfactory position in the “Levant”, the Middle East and also what was once called the Near East.

The region is not one that I know well personally. I have been to Qatar twice on short visits, once in 2001 (when Doha was a rather pleasant and rather sleepy place) and again in 2008 (by which time it had become a horrible, dystopian and skyscraping sprawl). I spent less than a week in the Luxor Hilton in 1994, and another three months in Egypt in 1998 (Aswan, the Red Sea, Alexandria and the oasis of Siwa). I have also spent about 4 months in Turkey and Turkish North Cyprus.

The Gulf

What many younger people fail to realize is just how recent (in present form) are the phenomena we know as Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Qatar etc. Take Abu Dhabi: when I was at school in England, aged 14, in 1970, there were a couple of rather unpleasant boys whose father was chief of police in Abu Dhabi, which was at the time a dusty desert enclave just beginning to profit from its huge hydrocarbon wealth. The British still supplied the senior military, police and other officials in Abu Dhabi at that time. Abu Dhabi, which had been known (right up to the Second World War) only for its pearls and for the slave trade, first struck oil in 1958 (or rather BP, as concession-holder, did). That first strike was followed by others, in 1959, 1962 and 1965.

The growth of Abu Dhabi in terms of population can be judged by the following progression: in 1960, the entire resident population of the city itself was 25,000. That grew to 50,000 by 1965 (though falling back to 46,400 by 1969). By 1995, the population was 398,695, and by 2014 was apparently 1,205,963, an increase of 31% even on the previous year! The latest estimate for the (entire) Abu Dhabi population (2018) is nearly 3 million! Abu Dhabi city (which contains about two-thirds of the entire population) was planned in 1967 for 40,000 inhabitants, which was changed in the 1970s (i.e. less than a decade later!) to a projection of 600,000. The present (2018) population of the city is said to number about 2 million. About 90% of the population of the emirate is foreign.

Qatar, likewise, is a very recent phenomenon in its recent form. Oil was discovered only in 1940, after which successive oil and gas finds in later decades transformed the small enclave once populated by a few thousand fishermen and pearl divers. The population of the entire sultanate in 1970 was 108,000, whereas in 2018 it is between 2.5 million and 3 million. As with Abu Dhabi and other Gulf Arab “states”, something like 90% of the population is foreign and that 90% does almost all of the work (from banking to street-sweeping), and has few rights.

I was once told, around 1977, by a construction person who spent his time in the Gulf, that he was engaged on constructing a new airport (I forget exactly where) there. He told me that the growth in the region (even then) had been phenomenal. I asked him where he thought that the Gulf Arabs would be by some date in the future (probably 2000, but I have in fact forgotten which year I specified) and he answered, cynically, “back riding their camels”! Well, he was wrong (if 2000 was the year), but I wonder whether he will be so wrong when looked back at from, say, 2050 or even 2030.

The Gulf “states” or statelets have no resilience: 90% of their population consists of expats, many of whom are from poor parts of Asia. The 1990 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait showed that, for all their expensive Western military toys, the Gulf rulers and their forces are men of straw.

Some Gulf states are running out of hydrocarbons, others have understood that the demand for oil may have peaked with the development of other energy sources, and so have begun to diversify economically. However, in the end, the future for these socially-backward societies with their “ready-to-wear” (bought) Western toys and expertise may be not so good.

The Main Part of the Middle East

We have seen that, from the time of open proclamation of the New World Order [NWO] immediately after 1989, the NWO has destabilized the Middle East and North Africa. Israel is of course pivotal. The destabilization has, overall, helped Israel. Its major opponents militarily (Syria, Iraq) have been cast into chaos, Iran has been embroiled in conflict in Iraq, Yemen and Syria, Egypt has been further suborned and placed under NWO-controlled dictatorship, while even Libya (peripheral, but wealthy and always anti-Israel) has been broken up internally. There are now no regional armies able to pose an immediate threat to Israel, the “Zionist entity”.

Turkey

Turkey was, for much of the past century, a relatively static and relatively neutral player on the geopolitical stage. That was the genius of Ataturk, to make Turkey militarily-strong without (usually, much) using that power externally. Now, Turkey risks being drawn into the sphere of destabilization.

The Big Picture

The combined region of the Middle East and Near East has always been the stage for empires, among them the Alexandrine Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantine Romans, the Ottomans, the British; the French too (from Napoleon’s day until 1945). There were attempts by others to exercise imperial power: the Russians under both Tsarism and Sovietism; also, briefly, Iran under the Shah in the 1960s and 1970s. Now, beyond the strictly regional squabbling players, there are attempts at larger-scale control: Russia, the USA (i.e. the NWO), as well as, on a more limited level of power than the first two (and also than under the Shah), Iran again.

It is clear that the only solution to the problems of the regions, particularly of the core Middle East, likely to last long, will be the imposition of a supervening imperium which can subordinate all existing states to its control. That means that the Arab states and Israel would be ruled by this quasi-imperial power. It is equally clear that such an imperium does not exist. The Americans have huge destructive resources, but lack the imperial will and desire which would enable them to succeed the British, the Ottomans, Byzantium, Rome etc. That is also true of the Russians, who also can be described as largely “defensive” (wishing to defend their Southern flank as much as anything). The Iranians have not the power to make a substantial difference in this arena.

The conclusion is, to me, obvious: the future of the region is not another imperial or quasi-imperial chapter, but large-scale destruction only.
