Memory Lane triggered

More memories were triggered when I saw that my one-time home, a house of which I had a lease in the years 2002-2004, has come up for sale for the first time in 55 years: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/105899483#/

I suppose that I could buy it, and its surrounding small estate, were I not short of about £7 million!

I have to say that the estate agents have had the place photographed beautifully:

Funny to think that my present humble home would fit twice, I suppose, maybe even thrice, into the ballroom alone.

Looking idly at the estate agents’particulars, it is clear that there have been changes since I lived there. For one thing, even the main house has been split into no less than 17 flats! I see, also, that two wind turbines now exist somewhere beyond sight of the house.

106 acres. My own lease included only the main house, with 4 acres of gardens, ornamental ponds and Victorian grottoes.

The person who owns or owned the house was the son of the farmer who bought it in 1966 for the land; the farming family never lived there (I think) but built a modern house halfway down the mile-long drive.

I think that at that time far more land surrounded the house, and I was told that, in its pre-First World War heyday, there was an estate of 5,000 acres. Maybe.

I was told when I lived there that the sale price in 1965 was £65,000…but I have now seen an interview which puts the 1965 auction sale price at only £21,500!

The person who owned the house when I lived there was a bit of a scoundrel, locally notorious. His idea (I heard) after my time there ended, was to maximize revenue via splitting up the main house into different rented units. There were already “hippies” living in the stables when I was there.

The man who owned the house prior to 1966 was an apparently very nice man called Leslie Major, whose father had owned the house before him, and who also owned the mill at Lifton, Devon (a few miles away across the Tamar), and which is still a food plant, now owned by Purina.

Mr. Major founded the Devon Bird-Watching and Preservation Society, and wrote on daffodil growing. In the 1930s, he also raced cars.

Sadly, Mr. Major became financially distressed, and sold the house and park to the farming family mentioned (the Tucker family) in 1966, and they were out of place in such a setting: see https://www.scribd.com/document/132741300/Daffodil-Cultivation-in-Cornwall-and-Isles-of-Scilly-Leslie-Major.

I could write a possibly amusing memoir of my time there. Such as? Well, such as the time that it turned out that the “hippies” from the old stables were running a cannabis farm in the attics and, to disguise any interest by the authorities in the electricity used to keep the temperature high, had put an enormous tropical snake in there!

I was told that by the owner one day, after he discovered the “farm” and told them to get rid of the lot (cannabis plantation and snake!). He was a scoundrel of sorts, but more someone who sailed close to the wind rather than an out-and-out villain, and pleasant enough to talk to. A rural Arthur Daley, if you like.

In fact, long after I left, the hippies or others tried it again, as I read in an online local newspaper, I think around 2010. The police raided the place and made arrests, apparently…

In fact, I heard that some “businessman” (who turned out to be a drug dealer) took on the lease, or rented the house, some time after I left. His dead body was found in the drawing room, or so I heard. For the full Agatha Christie effect, of course, it should have been the Library!

[the Library when I had the lease of the house; some of my books]
[Library cat…]

It was rather a magical place all the same (and haunted: my wife saw the ghost once or twice, or at least one ghost, I think the young girl noted in this local history: https://www.scribd.com/document/132741300/Daffodil-Cultivation-in-Cornwall-and-Isles-of-Scilly-Leslie-Major).

I imagine that it will be hard to sell (except to someone wanting the revenue stream from rentals of the various houses, cottages and flats). To reconvert the main house would, I am guessing, be rather expensive.

I shall buy a Euromillions ticket. Who knows?…

A big step forward for Spain.

At one time, in the UK, there were real journalists. They had opinions. They sometimes expressed them. They still, however, reported the news. Now? Politically-correct semi-literates and/or Jewish Zionists. There are a few exceptions (mostly sidelined or not much broadcast or printed). The others form a kind of ZOG-oriented cabal, which does not just include political journalists (most of them), but extends more widely, even beyond the news media, to the wider msm: commentators, even comedians and TV presenters. A corrupt, decadent, and largely self-serving cabal who work to a spoken or unspoken agenda.

Someone should tell, or whisper, that to the “Black Lives Matter” (nonsense) people.

The closure of the majority of the UK’s railway system was indeed scandalous. Beeching and Marples were and remain the obvious villains, but there were widespread closures even before that, both from 1945-1965 and in the interwar period 1918-1939. Indeed, railways were closed even before the First World War. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeching_cuts.

In the United States, the decision was made to keep the tracks even where railways were closed. A strategic defence decision. How much better off would Britain have been had it too done that! New, high-tech rail (ultralight, robotic etc) might have used the same track, or relaid track. Instead, rail lines were taken up and the land, in many cases, built upon.

Interesting article

“Now free us from this crazy dogma: It is high time the Prime Minister allowed the country to begin the long process of recovery from a disaster which his policies are needlessly prolonging, writes Professor ANGUS DALGLEISH” [Daily Mail] https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9510619/ANGUS-DALGLEISH-free-crazy-dogma.html

“Data not dates, the Prime Minister famously said when he announced our ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown. It turns out that there was no road out and no map.

In truth, Government policy is now being driven by nothing more sophisticated than a deranged dogma.

It is dogma of the worst sort, for it is shaped by political cowardice and burnished by discredited scientific advisers who no longer seem capable of reviewing the evidence in front of them.” [Daily Mail]

Boris Idiot

I wrote, before “Boris” was “elected” as Conservative Party leader, that it really did not matter what unpleasant acts emerged about him. He was already known to be a moneygrubber, an incompetent, a constant liar, completely unable to actually run anything, as well as being part-Jew, part-Turk, and rather nasty altogether. So what new scandal could destabilize him?

“Boris” had (and has) weaponized his incompetence and lack of ability. No-one really expects even basic decency from him, let alone integrity, still less the ability to properly fulfil his office. That lack of any public expectation is like a suit of armour for him.

In any case, the Labour Party is now considered so useless by the white British that nothing short of a “nuclear”-level scandal would push them beyond the Conservative Party. Is the present kefuffle that? Probably not.

The tweeter means well, but the war on European humanity will not be fought against and won by signing petitions, tweeting, blogging etc…

The Islamists (or in Imran Khan’s case, faux-Islamists) are learning from the Jew-Zionists and their attempts to criminalize, inter alia, any questioning of the “holocaust” farrago…

Once freedom of expression goes, it goes. In the UK, we have seen that singer-songwriter and commentator Alison Chabloz was recently convicted of making a few remarks (both unexceptionable and in fact true, if robustly put) about Jewish behaviour. That is how freedom of expression is destroyed, when a special-interest group makes expression of opinion liable to result in a criminal charge.

The so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” has been trying to “bag” Alison Chabloz for at least 5 years, a fact recently admitted to in the Jewish “community” press by the CAA’s “Director of Investigations and Enforcement”, Steven Silverman of Grays, Essex: https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/our-five-year-fight-to-imprison-holocaust-denier-alison-chabloz/.

“Slitherman” has in the past made attempts to have me too arrested via malicious complaint: see, for example, https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

As far as Alison Chabloz is concerned, last year (2020), the CAA (via a suborned Police and Crime Commissioner, police, at least one MP, and lawyers of the Crown Prosecution Service) managed to have Alison put on trial and then locked up for 2-3 days (4 including days of arrival and departure). She was granted bail pending appeal, and later won that appeal when the CPS had either to give up or to reveal details of the backstairs conspiracy which involved both the CPS and the other above-designated actors.

In fact, the days Alison spent in custody after lodging of that appeal have now been credited to her in respect of her present sentence. Good news.

Alison’s present situation is that she remains in Bronzefield Prison, near Heathrow Airport, where she has been since her recent conviction on 31 March 2021. In other words, she has, as of today, served three weeks and a day. Not including days of trial. She has applied, via Counsel, for bail pending appeal, before a Crown Court judge, but been refused.

Alison Chabloz was sentenced to 18 weeks. The usual 50% discount for release “on licence” (commonly referred to as “parole” in most countries) reduces that to 9 weeks. Days of custody after charge, and days of court hearing, including the two days of trial, take off at least another week; the 4 days spent wrongly imprisoned in 2020 are also taken off. All of that may add up to 2 weeks, thus making Alison’s time actually in prison about 7 weeks, meaning that she would normally expect to be released on licence sometime in the second half of May.

Word from usually-reliable sources is that Alison will in fact be released early on electronic tag next Monday, 26 April 2021. That, however, is not certain, as far as I know.

[Alison Chabloz]

Letters, cards, books, and money (enabling Alison to buy useful items in what seems to be a poorly-administered prison) can be sent. Voicemails and emails can also be sent: see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/bronzefield-prison; https://www.emailaprisoner.com/; https://prisonguide.co.uk/bronzefield-prison/; https://www.gov.uk/send-prisoner-money.

While it is possible that Alison will be released within the next 5 days, that is not certain. She would no doubt like to receive contact or any modest sums of money (sent by your debit card via a government-run site).

Below: re. Professor David Miller of Bristol University. A Jew-Zionist academic admits to the malicious abuse of power by the Jew-Zionist lobby in the UK…

Ha. “No comment”…

Neo-Nazi” Ukraine? If only! In fact, Ukraine is now entirely Jew-Zionist dominated. One government minister is even an Israeli citizen! Since independence, i.e. since the collapse of the Soviet Union three decades ago (which collapse however had to happen), Ukraine has been a corrupt crazy mess of a country.

The Ukraine situation is more complicated than many understand. I recommend The White Guard, a novel by Bulgakov…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_White_Guard.

Griffin is right, though (as is Peter Hitchens), about Britain, with its almost pathetic current levels of power, trying to play the poodle to the USA (actually, NWO) again. As in Afghanistan and Iraq. Those invasions both went well, didn’t they?… Oh, and in Libya, of course…

There are parallels here to the 1938-1939 situation, when Britain and France at first tried to interfere with German annexation of the Sudetenland, then gave worthless “guarantees” to Poland. The result, following the German (and Soviet) invasion(s) of Poland? War, which spread throughout much of Europe and then the world.

If armed conflict, even on a proxy basis, starts between Russia and the USA (and the allies of the USA, meaning primarily the UK), it might trigger a huge conflagration, causing enormous damage and slaughter in both Russia and USA, and (but) even worse harm to the UK, with its small size and crowded population. The UK is packed with American bases, and with early-warning installations. Prime targets.

The horrible woman shown is Joan Ryan, former MP [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Ryan], who was notable both for her total doormatting for Israel [eg. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Ryan#Labour_Friends_of_Israel] and for her own unrestrained greed for money [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Ryan#Expenses_controversies]. I have no idea whether, as MP, she was also “bunged” money from one or another Jew and/or Israeli slush fund. I would certainly not be surprised had that been the case.

Incidentally, what strikes me so often is the sheer mediocrity (at best) of so many MPs now. Look at Joan Ryan’s background: local schools in Warrington, Lancashire, were followed by a degree in sociology from a further education college; she was about 24 then. Two years later, she obtained a supposed Master’s degree from the South Bank Poly (by Elephant and Castle, London). She then taught sociology at some school in Hammersmith for several years.

At present it seems more likely than not that the persecuted singer-songwriter, satirist and commentator will be released early, on an electronic tag, next week; so far, she has been in prison for nearly three weeks since her recent conviction and sentence. If she is not so released, either next week or thereafter, she will stay in prison until the latter part of May.

Alison Chabloz is appealing her conviction and sentence; the appeal is likely to be heard, in Crown Court, on or about 3-4 June 2021.

In reality, almost all of the dictatorial measures taken in 2020 and 2021 in the UK were and are useless in terms of the “panicdemic”, and yet have trashed much of the economy, and much of society as well, including our cherished illusions about being a society under law, and our equally cherished ideas about our civil rights.

My own view of cannabis (and other illegal drugs) and the law is that, while the clarity of complete decriminalization appeals, I despise drug abusers, and would prefer either drug abuse to cease to exist, or drug abusers to cease to exist (or be eliminated).

On the other hand, the present system is not working.

I am also cognizant of the fact that societies where cannabis use is prevalent tend to fall to pieces, as Hafiz, the Persian poet, saw happening in his own country many centuries ago, and as one can see in the areas of the world where cannabis use is prevalent; Jamaica, for one.

All the —mainly British— people I knew when younger (1970s, 1980s), those who regularly smoked marijuana, dropped out of society to a greater or lesser extent.

The old Stasi, in the DDR, would have loved “Covid passports”, “track and trace” etc.

That anti-white narrative or stream of constant msm propaganda particularly affects the blacks, who as a group tend to lack logical-critical thinking skills.

Radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer (who blocked me years ago on Twitter when I exposed her ignorance on a point or two of law and procedure) seems to be turning a blind eye to the abuses carried out by the Jew-Zionist lobby. She has never said a word in support of the free speech of those attacked, and even prosecuted, at the instigation of packs of Zionist Jews such as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”. I wonder why?

Yes, Laurence Fox and his “Reclaim Party” can be put in the same bin as all the rest of the controlled opposition: Reform UK, Brexit Party, UKIP, “anti-immigration” “Conservatives”, Katie Hopkins, “Tommy Robinson”, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad”, Delingpole, Toby Young and his fake “Free Speech Union” etc etc.

Is that so? If the new Alba Party challenges the SNP in most Scottish consituencies, and effectively enough so that other parties come through the middle (Conservative, LibDem, Labour), then yes. It may well be, though (and I never claim great knowledge of Scottish politics) that many voters “up there” will choose between Alba Party and SNP, and simply dump the others.

Voters who are pro-Independence but anti-SNP. I do not know whether that is so, and whether there are even any pro-Independence but anti-SNP voters.

At the moment, it seems doubtful that Alba Party will make a big impression: https://news.sky.com/story/scottish-elections-sturgeons-snp-set-for-majority-but-salmonds-alba-unlikely-to-get-single-seat-sky-news-poll-12268966.

I am guessing, but it may be that Salmond’s quite recent sex crime trial has mortally wounded him politically, even if he was formally acquitted.

Either way, it does seem that “Independence”, however nebulous a concept that is in the Scottish context where a new Scotland might still be tied into EU, IMF, World Bank, NATO etc, is gaining ground with Scottish voters. That might have big geopolitical implications.

Well, I see that John Rentoul has again been defeated by me, this week scoring only 3/10. My own score was 6/10 (I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 9 and 10).

Of course, to say that “Scotland voted SNP” in 2015, 2017, and 2019 is true only in terms of First Past The Post voting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party#House_of_Commons_2.

In 2015, the SNP captured 56 out of the 59 Scottish seats in the Commons; in 2017, 35 out of 59, and in 2019, 48 out of 59. “Scotland” therefored, supposedly “voted SNP”.

In reality though, meaning in terms of the popular vote, the SNP only scored 50%, 36.9% and 45% in those years.

Usually, when there is a successful popular movement for a country to leave a larger country or empire, there is a large popular majority for that: 90% in favour, perhaps; certainly 80%. In Scotland, any majority at all is likely to be small, maybe 55% for and 45% against.

Purge of internet radio stations

There seems to be ongoing, and now intensifying, a purge of dissident “radio stations” on the Internet. The noisy “Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake charity yesterday announced that, at its instigation, Devon and Cornwall Police and CPS had charged someone from Cornwall under the Public Order Act 1986.

I was informed by a blog commentator that a former BBC employee who now runs his own “radio station” online from Nottinghamshire, has also been harassed by the police.

We have seen how others who run, or even just talk on, Internet “radio” podcasts are being subjected to similar treatment. Alison Chabloz is on trial, on a similar basis, next week (30-31 March 2021). Good luck and victory to her!

Britain’s toytown police state is gradually developing into a real one, aided by the weaponization of “the virus”, a supine Bar, malleable or complicit judges, conniving mass media, and a non-existent Parliamentary Opposition.

The persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, will be in court tomorrow on first appearance in respect of a charge under Public Order Act 1986. From what little I have heard, it sounds like a nonsense charge, but I await developments. In the meantime, I wish her well.

Alison Chabloz also awaits trial, set down for 2 days (30-31 March 2021) on a charge under the notorious bad law of the Communications Act 2003, s.127.

There will probably be an all-out war with China (NATO v. China) sooner than we think. That war may well devastate the USA and Europe. It will be terrible, but also may give the post-Aryan European people the possibility of joining with Russia afterwards, in order to create a new society across Eurasia…and a future super-race.

If he feels so strongly about such bad behaviour, Goodwin should have a word with the officials of the small but well-funded Jew-Zionist cabal known as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”. They and their members have been trying to ruin people’s businesses, professional practices, academic careers etc for years, all the while playing the Jewish “victim”… The same applies to other basically Jewish groups such as “Hope not Hate” and its smaller copyists.

First thoughts

Was listening to the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme, specifically to some Italian woman, an EU drone from the (Italian) Democratic Party [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Party_(Italy)], in respect of Italy/EU having blocked a vaccine export to Australia.

This was apparently an EU action, rather than a simply Italian one, but it reminded me that, over the years, I have heard from several people foolish enough to contract with Italians and Italian companies, including very large ones. Keywords? Dishonesty, unreliability.

Better news

A pesticide believed to harm bees won’t be used in England, after it had been approved for temporary use in January.

The government had authorised the emergency use of a product containing the chemical thiamethoxam, because of a virus which affected sugar beet seeds.

But that protection won’t be needed now, as the colder weather means there’s less risk to the crop.”

I would sacrifice the entire sugar beet crop if that were necessary to protect the bee population.

Aylett does have a point, though. The justification for dumping Corbyn was that another leader (as it turned out, Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer) would be more popular with the public, more “electable”. Seems not…

Russia, trains, and elderly rural inhabitants

I saw this:

It is not clear where the train in the above film is located. Possibly in the north of Russia, or the Urals region, though the use of the word taiga for “forest” seems to indicate a Siberian location.

Ah, got it: the settlement of Soyga is in the Lensky district of the Arkhangelsk oblast (a large area akin to a typical American state in area), in the far north of Russia): see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oblasts_of_Russia; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arkhangelsk_Oblast; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arkhangelsk; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lensky_District,_Arkhangelsk_Oblast

That German news documentary reminds me of a film I saw over 20 years ago, Bread Day [on British TV possibly shown as Bread Train]:
True to its title, Sergei Dvortsevoy’s Bread Day spans the course of 24 hours, specifically in “Township #3” in Zhikharevo, located 80 km from St. Petersburg. As revealed by the opening title card, this former worker’s settlement is now all but abandoned, save for a handful of pensioners and some rambunctious goats. This fateful day starts with a small group of these aforementioned elderly (primarily women) convening in the middle of nowhere during winter, in order to take delivery of a train carriage that they then proceed to push along the tracks through the blistering cold and thick snow.https://eefb.org/retrospectives/sergey-dvortsevoys-bread-day-khlebnyy-den-1998/

The settlement or small village in Bread Day was only 50 miles from St. Petersburg; the settlement in the German news film shown above is more remote, somewhere hundreds of miles from Arkhangelsk, which is a city of nearly 350,000 inhabitants, and which has airports, and a seaport, as well as a train to Moscow, 700 miles to the south.

A Soviet person once told me (c.1980) that you only had to go about 15 miles from the then Leningrad to find yourself in villages without running water, though almost everywhere had electricity: “Socialism means Soviet power plus the electrification of the whole country” [Lenin].

Since the collapse of socialism (1989, though the Soviet Union limped on until 1991), the rail system in Russia and other republics declined in most respects. While some express and other trains are now more efficient, branch lines to “unimportant” places have been more or less left to rot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rail_transport_in_the_Soviet_Union. A less organized version of what happened in the UK during the Beeching era of the 1960s, but on a vast scale. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeching_cuts.

Of course, the train branch lines in Russia are also symptomatic of the decline of the Russian countryside, which was not always very prosperous even in Tsarist days, but was hit and mortally wounded by the socialist policy of Collectivization from 1928 onward: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collectivization_in_the_Soviet_Union.

Since the fall of socialism, since people in the rural areas have been free to relocate to cities (including Moscow), the rural areas have fallen even further into the swamp. Population loss (especially of the young), ageing population, services of all kinds declining or abandoned.

Peter Hitchens has fallen victim, not to “the virus”, nor to the vaccine, but to the Twitter curse of getting caught up in pointless arguments on a personal basis. There is a lot going on in the world; focus on that.

Of course, he is right that, not the virus but the government measures shutting down society and economy for over a year, are already impoverishing the UK. Look at the fuss over the modest 1% NHS pay rise proposal. It could have more a great deal more had the government not wasted enormous amounts on almost if not actually pointless “virus” measures, in particular the ludicrous “lockdowns”.

Final word for tonight

It will be recalled that, a week ago, I notified my blog readers that a certain NHS consultant from Essex (I have blogged about his abuse previously, but let’s just call him “Dr. Dim” for now) had tweeted, falsely accusing me, as well as persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, and also a professional photographer, Jo Stowell, of threatening to release details of his home address publicly, something which not only was not so, but also would be impossible for me in view of the fact that I do not actually know that address (nor even in which town or village he lives)!

“Dr. Dim” (NHS consultant psychiatrist) then received numerous tweets from persons who had obviously seen and believed his false, libellous and harassing tweets (at least one other, though mentioning no names, is still up on Twitter, or was, as of yesterday).

I made official complaint to Dr. Dim’s NHS employers last Monday. As a result, “Dr. Dim” has removed that particular offending tweet (the one naming me, Alison Chabloz and Jo Stowell), no doubt forced to do so by his employers. He had already been forced to remove an earlier tweet about Alison Chabloz; his employers relayed to her, I believe, his “sincere apologies”.

We shall see now where this goes. “Dr. Dim” (who himself has mental problems) has been tweeting, unpleasantly, about me for several years (together with a little Zionist group on Twitter). I now have a number of different possibilities in terms of official and/or regulatory complaint, and also the possibility of taking direct civil legal action. We shall see.

Obviously, weather is not the same as climate, and the fact that snow and ice still exist, or increase, in this or that region does not thereby necessarily vitiate the “climate change” narrative(s).

Having said that, the whole “global warming”/”climate change” campaign (which is what it is) has been replete with fraud, misrepresentation, and straight nonsense (as when Al Gore’s popular film explained, entirely inaccurately, that the ecological disaster of the Aral Sea had been caused by climate change, when in fact the cause had been Soviet diversion of rivers in the 1960s and thereafter in order to irrigate cotton fields on a vast scale. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aral_Sea).

My own view, provisionally, is that some climate change is occurring, though I am unsure as to whether (or to what extent) that is the result of CO2 emissions (as claimed), sunspot activity, or some other causative factor(s).

For me, the bottom line is that the major polluter is China, and whatever a relatively small country like the UK does or does not do to reduce “emissions” is a drop in the ocean anyway. I believe that I am right in saying that the EU only produces about 9%-10% of “global emissions” of CO2, the UK only about 1% of the world total. In other words, even if the UK disappeared tomorrow, the difference would be minimal.

The real problem in the world as it is, is that the world population is twice as large as it was in 1970, and about twenty times as large as it was about 600 years ago, i.e. around 1400 AD, when our own age (characterized by such as Rudolf Steiner and Valentin Tomberg as the “5th Post-Atlantean Age”) started.

Most of the population increase of the past half-century or more has been in only 4 countries: China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh.

The basic problem facing the world at present is that the world population is far too large now; there are too many people, and that really means too many “black, brown and yellow” people, if you like.

Certainly Robin Cook, the then Foreign Secretary, was actually once given a public dressing down by the unpleasant Alastair Campbell, which on the face of it seemed startling (a “mere” public relations man telling off the Foreign Secretary).

While (as I blogged yesterday) I do have some sympathy for Hitchens in this matter, the point is that he is rather in the position of a fervent preacher for abstention from alcohol and its effects, which preacher then starts to enjoy a bottle of claret daily. He may say that he still opposes the easy availability of booze, but now that he himself is indulging in it, his words have less weight.

Stray thought

I was looking at Twitter and happened to see the tweets of what seems to be a Jewish woman resident in the UK. The tweets veered between the rather unpleasant and the trivial. What, however, caught my attention was the wording of the profile, which included the Hebrew words “עם ישראל חי“, which (thanks to Google Translate) I now know mean “Israel Lives“.

Hitler once said, of Germany in the Weimar Republic period, something akin to (I cannot right away find the exact quotation) that “there lives among us a foreign people, with all the rights of the German people” [without being part of Germany].

It is often said that to say that Jews in the UK give their allegiance to Israel before the UK, or even to say that their loyalties are split, is “antisemitic” (which, the judge in Alison Chabloz’s Crown Court appeal from the magistrates’ court reminded people, “is not a crime in England“).

The fact is that, for many Jews in the UK, Israel is more important than the UK, even when (as most do) they prefer to live in, perhaps work in or profit in, the UK rather than in Israel.

Hitler on Churchill

Adolf Hitler
Remarks June 1941 recorded by Martin Bormann, published in Hitler’s Table Talk (1953):

He [Winston Churchill] is the most bloodthirsty or amateurish strategist in history . . . For over five years this man has been chasing around Europe like a madman in search of something that he could set on fire. . . As a soldier he is a bad politician and as a politician is an equally bad soldier. . . The gift Mr. Churchill possesses is the gift to lie with a pious expression on his face and to distort the truth until finally glorious victories are made out of the most terrible defeats. . . Churchill, one of the most hopeless dabblers in strategy, thus managed to lose two theaters of war [in Yugoslavia and Greece] at one single blow. In any other country he would be court-martialed . . . His abnormal state of mind can only be explained as symptomatic either of a paralytic disease or of a drunkard’s ravings.

Churchill was certainly a terrible military strategist. Not only the disastrous campaigns in Yugoslavia and Greece (1941) but the later (1943) ideas of striking at the German Reich either via the South of France (a concept soon abandoned) or Italy (1943-45).

Italy was successfully invaded (the Italian Government deposed Mussolini, and then surrendered. Most of Italy was then eventually conquered by American, British and other Allied forces, but those forces never managed to occupy even all of Italy by the end of the War; neither did they penetrate Reich territory).

As to Churchill’s other strategic failures, one might mention, inter alia, the Fall of Singapore (1942) and (in the First World War) the disastrous plan to invade Turkey via Gallipoli.

Hitler on the USA

Adolf Hitler
Proclamation December 1941, addressing troops after taking over as Commander-in-Chief of the army
:

I don’t see much future for the Americans. It’s a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social inequalities . . . Everything about the behavior of American society reveals that it’s half Judaized, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold together – a country where everything is built on the dollar?

Was he wrong? He was, as so often, ahead of his time, but look at the USA in 2021!

More from Hitler about Churchill

Adolf Hitler
Remarks January 1942 recorded by Martin Bormann, published in Hitler’s Table Talk (1953):

Churchill is the very type of a corrupt journalist. There’s not a worse prostitute in politics. He himself has written that it’s unimaginable what can be done in war with the help of lies. He’s an utterly repulsive creature. I’m convinced that he has his place of refuge ready beyond the Atlantic. He obviously won’t seek sanctuary in Canada. In Canada he’d be beaten up. He’ll go to his friends the Yankees. As soon as this damnable winter is over, we’ll remedy all that.”

Sadly, Fate took a different turn, but now we’re back!

The Lost City of Z

Saw a film, The Lost City of Z: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lost_City_of_Z_(film), a biopic of the explorer, Fawcett [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percy_Fawcett]. I recall reading a quite interesting Penguin paperback about or (now that I look at Amazon’s website) by Fawcett, about 35 years ago.

The film was pretty good, very well-made, thoughtful. Not sure that a couple of politically-correct 2015-2016 (when the film was made) bits did not intrude: the views of (the film) Fawcett on race and culture may not have really mirrored those of the real Fawcett; one or two scenes seemed to show behaviour closer to the present day than how English people behaved in 1910 or 1920.

All the same, this was a very good film. It avoided the cliche and the ordinary. It held the attention to the end. Sadly, it was a financial bomb, costing USD $30M but grossing only $19M, says Wikipedia. Many of the best films are not popular or profitable, the 1946 original of The Razor’s Edge, for example. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Razor%27s_Edge_(1946_film).

I see now that Fawcett’s brother, Edward Douglas Fawcett, was also an interesting character, a mountaineer and Theosophist, who was acquainted with Blavatsky [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helena_Blavatsky]. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Douglas_Fawcett.

Russian TV made a documentary about Percy Fawcett, “Cursed Gold of the Incas“, as part of a series called “Secret Century“; that documentary was shown in 2003:

The latest censorship by Zionists and their dupes

Sad. When I was a small child, around 1960, I loved The Cat in the Hat etc, usually taken out from the children’s section of the local library. Now, Jewish supremacists in the USA are demanding that all of those books be banned. Six already have been. The Washington Post, CNN, all the usual suspects, are on the case now.

Does the USA now still call itself a “free country”, with freedom of expression? Not entirely a rhetorical question. Maybe even the concept is effectively gone…
