Lithuania, Kaliningrad, and the NWO/ZOG push for war with Russia

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10934333/Russia-warns-actions-against-NATO-member-Lithuania-blocking-sanctioned-goods.html

Here we see the weakness of a structure such as NATO.

One for all and all for one” (the motto of The Three Musketeers) sounds very gallant, and does provide a member-state with greater security (knowing that all members will pitch in if only one is attacked), but has this weakness: that if a member-state, even a tiny and (dare one say?) insignificant one, picks a quarrel with a neighbouring state (however large and powerful that neighbouring state may be), and if, as a result, the large neighbouring state then takes military action against the little state, all NATO members are obliged to take arms against that large and notionally “aggressor” state, despite the fact that it is the little member-state that has caused the problem.

I do not want to be too hard on the Lithuanians, who suffered much under Sovietism, and during the Second World War, and who were helpless victims of great-power strategic moves during much of the 20th Century, but this latest action by the Lithuanian government could trigger a third world war if allowed to get out of control.

It is also, from the point-of-view of Lithuanian self-interest, an action of stunning stupidity. After all, should NATO and Russia fight in that region, even using conventional weapons, which country is likely to be flattened first? Quite…

Or was this Lithuanian action the result of orders from secret sources in Washington and/or London?

We have been here, in a sense, before. On 1 March 1939, the governments of France and Britain gave “guarantee” to the government of Poland, pledging to “support” Poland, were Poland to be attacked: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Polish_alliance#British_assurance_to_Poland.

That “guarantee” was in fact worthless: “The British Chiefs of Staff at the time however noted that ‘we could give no direct help by land, sea or air’.” [Wikipedia, citing History Today].

Nonetheless, a mere 5 months after the proffering of the worthless “guarantee”, and when Germany invaded Poland in September 1939, Britain and France declared war on the German Reich despite not being able to assist the Polish government in any practical way.

Stupidity, or malice? At any rate, thus began the Second World War. As for Poland, instead of being invaded and badly damaged once, in 1939 (invaded by Germany from the west, and the Soviet Union from the east), it was later also a battleground in 1944, as Soviet forces pushed west into Central Europe.

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaliningrad; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6nigsberg; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithuania (Lithuania is almost exactly half the size of England, or between a quarter and a third of the size of the whole UK, but has only 2.8M people).

I wish not to see Europe, including the UK, devastated by a third massive war, and on an even more destructive scale, but it seems that the political puppets of the NWO/ZOG matrix have other ideas.

I have no idea what the circumstances were, but the tweeter has a point. There are too many jobsworths, too many compromisers, and too many people all too ready, for careerist reasons, to kow-tow to the forces of Evil (posing as the Good), as I remarked yesterday with reference to the fact that not one barrister helped me or gave one word of support when I was (not only wrongfully, but actually unlawfully) disbarred in late 2016: as to that, see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

Bar the odd minute or two, same with me.

There are exceptions, of course, but speaking in broad-brush terms, the blacks cannot create a civilization, cannot maintain one without help and guidance (look at the former colonies) and, all too often, cannot even live in one without being a destructive or nuisance element in society.

“Boris”-idiot runs the government of this country in a shambolic, inept, and corrupt way, just like some fraudulent, Levantine, part-Jew, part-Turk. Why is that? Oh, no, wait…

As for that weird little Jew, Fabricant, if his claim that he was once some kind of SIS agent (or officer? Surely not?!) is correct, then it does tend to support the view that “British Intelligence” is unfit for purpose.

Escalation in the Black Sea

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10847419/Royal-Navy-escort-ships-carrying-Ukrainian-grain-Black-Sea.html:

Britain is co-ordinating with its allies on a potential plan to send warships to the Black Sea port of Odesa to offer a protective escort to ships exporting Ukrainian grain.

  • Britain, NATO and other nations could create a ‘protective’ corridor to Odesa
  • It would allow Ukraine to export large amounts of grain needed worldwide 
  • Denmark meanwhile announced it will send US-made missiles to Ukraine
  • The Boeing Harpoon missiles could help Ukraine to deliver long-distance strikes 
  • The Russian war in Ukraine has exacerbated a global food crisis

The plan would see allied navies clear the area around the southern port of Russian mines before protecting freight ships carrying the vital produce from Putin’s warships according to The Times.

Long-range missiles will also be deployed to deter any Russian attempts to sabotage the corridor.

[Daily Mail].

This is mad, and carries with it obvious dangers, both of direct conflict between forces of NATO and Russia, and also that the Russians will increase attacks on Odessa itself, to destroy the port area and perhaps the whole city. Odessa is the third-largest city of Ukraine.

It would be tragic were Odessa, a beautiful city in large parts (look on Google Earth or elsewhere), as well as one with a history going back 2,000 years, to be destroyed. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odessa.

This worldwide situation is not straightforward but, in part, is the New World Order [NWO] and ZOG [Zionist Occupation Governments] in opposition to states not part, or so much part, of that (notably, Russia).

That Shaun Walker (Guardian drone) seems to have missed the way British TV reporters are often seen dressed and accoutred these days.

Journalists for major msm orgs are often pretty ignorant. I recall encountering an American in 1988, the only other customer in the rather nice marble-floored cafe at the old Warsaw Airport (the terminal I knew was remodelled in the 1990s, then demolished and rebuilt a number of years ago, the new one being finished in 2015).

Not many people were travelling from Warsaw —or to it— on that dark and snowy evening in mid-December 1988.

The American (I strongly suspect Jew) turned out to be the Newsweek correspondent for not only Poland but the whole of Eastern Europe, though based in Bonn, then capital of West Germany.

Conversation revealed that said American knew little about Poland, even as compared to me, and I myself was little more than a casual visitor who had been there a few times.

Also, imagine the idea— the whole of Eastern Europe covered by one unimpressive “journalist” who did not even live in the region!

The readers of the American news magazines, UK/US newspapers, and the audience for TV reports, give the reporters more credence than they usually deserve.

“Ostalgie”

I am at present about halfway through reading The Stasi Files: East Germany’s Secret Operations Against Britain, by Anthony Glees, which was published in 2003.

Just saw this hearsay comment (somewhere else):

The nostalgia referred to is called Ostalgie in German. Ost means East and Nostalgie means Nostalgia. Well, East Germany is still behind the Western part of the country, sadly. And the Ostalgie is there for a reason. I once talked to a man, an Ossie, a former East Berliner. In 2010 he told me: “I used to have one job. I couldn’t go where I wanted, for example Paris or London. But I could go on vacation to Prague, Budapest and the East-German and Polish coasts. We always went on summer holidays. Now, I have two jobs, and I barely make enough money to sustain myself. I can’t go anywhere these days. I haven’t been on a holiday for over 20 years now.”

Again, every story has at least two sides. The repression noted by the author of the book I am presently reading was real, but that was not the whole story, just as a picture of happy, perhaps wealthy, Americans enjoying the surf in Southern California is not the whole story about the USA.

I myself only saw the DDR/East Germany for a couple of days (in the summer of 1988). Not a terribly good impression (I have blogged on or around it in the past) but I have seen worse.

I sometimes wonder whether the East German rulers would not have been better to allow more travel to the West, and to allow their citizens to stay and work there at will. They might have found that quite a few returned, in the end, if given more freedom to come and go.

Of course, the drain of population East-West from 1945-1961 (1961 being when the Wall went up) was part of the reason, to stop that drain, but the Wall was a propaganda coup for the West. How could it not be? What kind of state needs to imprison its citizens? Etc.

The same factors might have been true of the Soviet Union.

This may well end badly (the whole thing).

This comes close to becoming an active participant in a war against Russia.

A point I have made repeatedly for many years.

The old idea that Britain is (or rather, was) “a free country under law” has become “Britain is a facade of a free country under law, but behind that really is, or is becoming, an unfree country bound by arbitrary decisions and instant fake ‘laws’ and regulations“.

Peter Hitchens has, over the past couple of years (since the “panicdemic” police state emerged) made similar claims about his Twitter account.

Once again, Evil poses as something “good”…

France, like Britain, needs a cultural purge. Followed by “Nuremberg” laws.

Something else that Britain needs, badly, now.

Peter Hitchens’ idea of transport, not very practical. So people wanting to travel across country with, perhaps, children, luggage, whatever, should have to struggle with buses and trains, like Soviet citizens of the 1970s or British citizens of the (?) 1940s? Much easier to load everything into a car.

It is true that there are far too many cars on the roads of the UK, but the answer is a smaller population.

Exactly. When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, heralding the end of old-style socialism across the world (yes, there are a few pathetic pockets such as Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela, all poverty-stricken and absurd), I was discussing the changes with acquaintances. I had just returned to the UK from my latest (and what turned out to be my last) trip to Poland.

The acquaintances just mentioned thought that the political revolution across “the satellites” meant “freedom”. While agreeing up to a point, my view was that the Central and Eastern European peoples involved were swapping one big dictator (socialist government and its ruling party in each country) for a multitude of small dictators (capitalist employers, mainly).

Now we see that both government and those non-governmental foci are oppressing the populations of Europe with a huge weight of, not only laws and taxes, but “rules”, “guidance”, politically-approved nonsense (never criticize Jewish behaviour, the behaviour of blacks or browns, never be “sexist” or “racist” —however defined—, never openly support white European race and culture etc).

The propaganda in favour of racemixing, for example, has become so blatant that even the sleepy public, even a few System MPs, have woken up to it. The white, often blonde, woman, the black “husband” figure, the mixed-race children. Every second or third ad on TV now.

This is the “Great Replacement”, the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, or to put it another way, “White Genocide”, and it is embedded in almost every TV ad, almost every TV drama, and so on. I wrote the following over two years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/. Since then, the pace has intensified. Tweeting, blogging, vlogging, or writing letters of protest, will not stop it or those behind it.

In fact, these days in the UK, people who do “ordinary” crimes generally have to work quite hard to get a custodial sentence. Every day one sees, in the popular prints, defendants effectively let off despite having committed real and serious crimes. I saw two yesterday, just in passing.

One was a woman who had stolen £45,000 from a charity, in breach of trust. Not imprisoned because she had children, and only because she had children! The other was an abusive ex-boyfriend of a young woman, which woman was beaten by said “ex” with a baseball bat, after he had smashed his way into her home. Sentence? Non-custodial.

When it comes to what is (though the System will deny it) “political” crime, such as posting satirical songs about Jews and/or “holocaust” fakery (Alison Chabloz in 2018), putting up white nationalist stickers on lamp-posts (someone in Wales got two-and-a-half years for that a while ago!), making a speech in Whitehall saying that Jews should be expelled from England as they have been in the past (in 2018, Jez Turner of the London Forum got a one-year prison sentence for such a speech), it is a different matter, and the defendant will be lucky to escape custody.

1933

In the USA, almost literal worship of money:

Meanwhile, in the Reich:

For me, perhaps the most distinguishing feature of the German Reich, as compared to both finance-capitalism (the West) and Marxist-Leninist socialism (the East) was that, as soon as National Socialists attained to political power in 1933, the things which had been promised to the German people were delivered, or at least began to be delivered. National Socialism delivered.

Very true. It began decades ago in Hollywood. Films would almost always show the nuclear scientist, the brain surgeon, the head of the CIA etc as a black man (not woman, as yet). The fact that this did not reflect reality in 99.9% of cases was not relevant. As with the huge contemporary campaign, especially in the UK, to show almost every family in TV ads, soaps, dramas etc as mixed-race to some degree, the aim was in fact not to reflect reality, but to create a different reality. Social engineering.

Simplistic, but rather true all the same.

I recall seeing (have not seen it since) the Sunday Times Rich List about 20 years ago. The wealthiest person in the UK was some Ukrainian Jew “worth” several billions. Now, we see that, in the world as a whole, Jeff Bezos of Amazon has assets valued at some £150 billion or more (and that is after his ex-wife got about £50 billions in a divorce settlement).

It goes without saying that anyone with vision could do a great deal with such money. Rewild a huge area. Create cities. Create national parks in poor countries (eg in Africa or Latin America). Establish institutes of advanced learning. And so on. The key words, though, are “with vision“, vision beyond the mercantile. A few very wealthy people have such vision (the obvious historical example is Andrew Carnegie), but most do not.

I seem to remember that the theme was explored by Hermann Hesse in Siddartha, but that may not be so.[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermann_Hesse; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siddhartha_(novel)].

Exactly. Paid “furlough”, at least if it continues for more than a few weeks (which weeks expired 6 months ago), is a crazy policy.

No one with any real idea thinks that Government money is a fixed amount of coins in a wooden chest; that is “Mrs Thatcher” economics, “housewife’s shopping basket” economics.

Having said that, continual issuance of fiat money eventually cannot be sustained. In extreme cases it leads to collapse of the currency as people cease to accept that such money has value. Such money ceases to be money at all except nominally, and just becomes worthless paper. Examples well-known include Zimbabwe under Mugabe, the 1923 German hyperinflation (1921-1923, but the slide became unstoppable in 1923), various Latin American examples too.

I myself saw, on several visits, what happened in Poland in the late 1980s as the zloty slid in value and then just collapsed vis a vis hard currencies. When I was first there, in summer 1988, the zloty already had an official rate which was many times the value of the true rate (as against the US Dollar, the only currency universally acceptable in 1980s Poland). The taxi drivers all had stickers saying “x4“, meaning that you paid 4 times what the meter showed. By the time that summer 1988 had given way to the snows of winter, the stickers read “x40“, and by early Autumn of 1989, “x200“.

I recall taking a taxi ride around part of Warsaw in late 1989. The taxi driver could not find the address, because the apartment building sought was in a small street which was not marked on any streetmaps. Eventually, he found it. The amount on the meter was large and then had to be multiplied by 200! Fortunately, I had more than enough (in British money it was worth only a few pounds). As a tip, I gave the driver a single American dollar. His face! I might as well have given him a gold bar with “Reichsbank” stamped into it! His thanks were effusive…he could not stop smiling.

At that time, the ordinary shops were almost empty of goods. Only the hard-currency “Pewex” shops had goods, mostly imported: alcohol, scents, some foodstuffs. Their customers were either black market operators or those with access to foreign currency via relatives in the USA or elsewhere. Everyone wanted dollars, and Poland had a class system of three tiers: the ruling elite, those with dollars, and the rest.

I bought little with the stack of zloty high-denomination notes in my possession. A bottle of Krupnik (a Polish drink, not bad with black coffee on the side: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krupnik), and also some vinyl records, mostly of Soviet manufacture. Cesar Franck, Taneyev, Lyapunov, Tchaikovsky, Russian folk music. I still have a couple somewhere. I think that they cost, in English money, about 20p each, if that.

By that time, late 1989, the socialist system had just more or less collapsed. The —very— new government was a Solidarity one.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_z%C5%82oty#Financial_crisis_of_1980s

Collapse of a currency means, more often than not, collapse of the political system too, eventually. Both government and currency depend on confidence.

Looking at the above exchange, both are right and both are wrong. What matters is the extent of money-creation in any given period. If Hitchens is too much of the “Thatcher’s shopping basket”, then his interlocutor is too blase by far. Yes, the UK has been mightily indebted in the past, and to some extent that is a fiction, just as money (whether coins, notes or displays on computer screens) is a fiction or accepted reality. There is some effect or price to pay though, eventually, though it can be minimized by stretching things out for years or centuries.

People often talk about how Britain was in a poor state in terms of public finance after WW2 and by reason of that unnecessary war, yet established the NHS etc.

True, the UK established the NHS and kept an Empire/Commonwealth going, but as Correlli Barnet pointed out, Britain had resources enough to do one or possibly two things (global power status and a Welfare State), but tried to do both and also to modernize its industry. It could not do all three, despite the 1960s/1970s development of North Sea Oil.

“WW2” rationing did not end, along with the War, in 1945; it carried on, at first stricter but then lessening, until 1954, and even slightly longer in some respects! Rishi Sunak has more to play with, but not an unlimited amount.

Stray thoughts

I thought that the “young” (eg aged 18-24) were supine, but looking around in the local town and local supermarket a mile or so away from my humble home, I see that many of the worst kow-tow-ers are members of the older generation (70+ or 80+), wearing their facemasks and muzzles even in the open air, as if to say, “look Mr. Government, look Mr. Policeman, I am compliant!

If they are so worried and think (wrongly) that a cloth face-muzzle will protect them, then why take the (non-existent) risk? Why not stay indoors where I cannot see your pathetic mugs?

Laura Towler is quite right. In fact my own (maternal-side) grandfather fought in WW2 (really fought: he was at Dunkirk and later in Burma). I doubt that he would think much of the Britain of today (he died in 1970, when the decadence and evil of multikulti Britain was but in its early stages).

Many UK and US troops were shocked at the destruction wrought by RAF and USAAF bombing in Germany, as was my father in law (himself a WW2 officer of Bomber Command, and who had to bomb Germany on many occasions).

As for Stuchbery, I have blogged about him before…https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/.

No point in interacting with that sort of individual.

As if a few hundred or thousand Indo-Paks (in a UK population of 40M-50M then), would “get Britain moving“! Also, the mill towns in the North already had skilled workers…you know, English workers…

In the 1920s and early 1930s, the NSDAP always said that a Communist was a potential National Socialist, but today, in 2020 Britain, we of social nationalism would not want the “antifa” and similar idiots anyway, because they are idiotic, badly-informed and generally useless.

The Guardian

Apparently, the Guardian newspaper is on the brink of insolvency and is cutting more staff. In a way, I shall be sorry to see it go, when it goes, if only because at least it has sub-editors, or others who can spell and/or have some basic education (compare the wannabee “journalists” used by the Daily Mail and other online news outlets).

On the other hand, it has supported mass immigration and the Jewish lobby as far back as I can recall, so goodbyee, don’t cryee…

What’s good for the goose

I noticed a few pro-“antifa” drones whining on Twitter because an account was briefly disciplined by Twitter staff for using the word “redneck“. Well, “redneck” was preceded by other terms long ago, “nigger” and others among them. “What goes around comes around”, as the Americans say.

More widely, these “useful idiots” of the Jewish-Zionist lobby or ZOG/NWO cabal(s) cannot see that, once they have served their purpose, they will go the same way as those they have hounded or weaselled off Twitter and other platforms.

A US President has an unfettered jurisdiction and power to apply the prerogative of mercy, that is to pardon anyone. Trump could, at any time up to his last minute in office, pardon anyone. If he wanted to, he could pardon all the social nationalists etc who have been serving hard time in Federal prison, many of them for years.

The 20th of July 2019: thoughts

derfuhrer

Today is the 75th anniversary of the attempt made to assassinate Adolf Hitler at his headquarters in East Prussia, the Wolfsschanze (Wolf’s Lair), now situated within the borders of post-1945 Poland.

I blogged last year about matters around the event and around those times more generally:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/20/the-20th-of-july/

What is there to add? Perhaps a reminder that human manifestations on this Earth do not last forever. The film, below, shows what the sprawling headquarters of 1944 is like today: as abandoned and lost as the cities of the Aztecs or the Mayans.

On the other hand, the devastated cities of the Germany of 1944 and 1945 are today thriving governmental, commercial, cultural and residential centres, with populations again in the hundreds of thousands or even millions.

The above photographs show the devastation resulting from war. Today, those same areas are prosperous, busy, thronged with inhabitants. Some of the old has been replaced, some kept, adapted to contemporary usage.

The same is true of ideas. Both the practical and the spiritual-cultural achievements of National Socialism were huge, enormous, particularly when it is considered that they were achieved within only 6 years of peace, the years 1933-1939. SIX YEARS!

We do not need to copy or indeed defend everything that was done by, or in the name of, the Reich. Indeed, many of the flaws of the Reich, or supposed flaws, existed and in fact were even more glaring in both the West and the Soviet Union of the 1930s. The Zeitgeist streamed over the world as a whole, like the jetstream.

In 2019, we honour what was good in the Reich, what worked for the German people and the peoples of all Europe. The rest, we do not need. Times move on. Some challenges remain; others, newly emerged, have to be faced for the first time.
