For several years, I have been blogging and (before the Jew lobby had me expelled from Twitter in 2018) tweeting that the UK needs to join more closely with Russia, partly because, on certain premises, Russia would supply the UK with natural gas at or near cost-price.

The present “British” government of Jews, part-Jews, Indians etc has no interest in the welfare of the British people, preferring to do the job of the New World Order [NWO] in attacking Russia, Ukraine being the latest excuse.

Who will suffer because of the sanctions regime on Russia? Putin? The neo-nomenklatura of Russia? No. Us, mainly. The British people.

England has had some ridiculous Archbishops of Canterbury over the past half-century, but Welby takes the biscuit.

So is the direction of travel… fake meat–“fake” animals–fake people?

A pile of rubble, and semi-humans crawling over the ruins, that may be the future, not so far down the line, of our present civilization and culture.

Alison Chabloz

Happened to see a report about the Alison Chabloz sentencing hearing. It appeared on the online news site MyLondon: https://www.mylondon.news/news/north-london-news/racist-who-compared-auschwitz-theme-23695991.

Pretty typical of many news reports seen now, eg in the Daily Mail and other online newspapers: containing spelling mistakes as well as misunderstood bits and pieces. For example, “shackle” for “shekel“. The (mostly quite poorly-paid) 20-somethings now writing for newspapers do not, most of them, have the real-life journalistic background of the old-style reporters.

Having said that, the MyLondon report, by one Holly Evans, does cover the main facts adequately, if briefly and selectively.

Blackheath funfair

While looking at that report about Alison Chabloz, I saw also the following one: https://www.mylondon.news/news/south-london-news/no-acid-attacks-no-stabbing-23695186. That brought back memories.

In the early 1980s, I think 1981 or 1982, I was at that funfair, or a similar one, on the grassed open area or Common at Blackheath. My then girlfriend’s small children, aged about 5 and 7, wanted to go. I rather dislike funfairs but had to agree to take them and their mother. It was just about walking distance from their house.

We tried various stalls and rides. I think (though cannot truly remember after 40 years) that I won a prize at the rifle-shooting stall, and I remember being asked (told by the attendant, and rudely) to stop driving my dodgem car broadside into other peoples’ cars; not aggression, but I honestly thought that that was what you were allowed and expected to do; in fact that had happened several times before in my life…I must be a recidivist!

Anyway, the children’s mother noticed a placard inviting anyone wanting to earn £5 to return at midnight to help dismantle all the rides etc. This was 1982, but £5 was no great sum even then; maybe £20 in the money of today.

If truth be known, I was not very enthusiastic, but I had no real or weekly/monthly source of income, and was not even on the dole, so I felt obliged to do it. I had not even started the law degree I later did (from 1984-1987), and had been overseas not long before.

A rather unwanted guest, a recent ex-Soviet citizen, middle-aged, and with glasses and a pipe, called Volodya (the children, unable to say his name, called him Volyoda), was accompanying us, but was saved from having to do any hard work by his (suddenly-mentioned) bad knee…

I turned up at midnight, and so began a very tiring and unpleasant overnight slog lasting hours, during which I, and about 8 other foolish volunteers, had to do things such as dismantle the dodgem car ride (carrying steel girders as well as cars), and (in my case) also climbing and wriggling to the top of the largest marquee and dismantling that.

Needless to say, I was in far better physical condition then than I now am. I could not even think of doing such labour now. All the same, this was hard hard work.

The funfair manageress woman, some kind of tinker-“traveller” type, wanted us, at 0400 hrs, to return to do more work and collect our £5 notes in the later morning! I led a “peasants’ revolt” against this transparent attempt to cheat us, and we then slaved for another hour or so before being (grudgingly) paid off.

I returned home dirty, whacked out, covered in scratches and oil etc, but triumphantly clutching my £5 note. Never again.

David Lammy

Bad-joke MP and one-time, rather briefly, practising and/or employed barrister, David Lammy, like quite a few of the blacks, thinks that Jesus Christ was “a refugee“. George Galloway, ex-MP, puts him, somewhat, in his place…

A few other of Lammy’s ignorant pronouncements: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Lammy#Comments_attracting_criticism. He is no better than semi-educated, in reality.

Lammy is no doubt welcome at Lincoln’s Inn, the Inn of Court to which he belongs. He may be a Bencher there —a member of the governing body— I do not know. I myself was a member of Lincoln’s Inn from 1986 until the Jew lobby procured my (wrongful/unlawful) disbarment in 2016 (so triggering expulsion from the Inn as well). So Lammy is welcome but I am not welcome. Sour grapes aside…is that not absolutely stupid and ridiculous?

Many areas of England, especially but not exclusively in the South, are becoming overcrowded in the extreme, with green bits gradually being filled in by private developments of little houses, developments without decent gardens or public parks, all because local authorities allow developers almost free rein, and because, on the big picture level, immigration and births to immigrants are swamping us.

Ukraine situation

Despite my (overall) “pro-Russia” position (a simplification, but let it stand for purposes of convenience), I have been, naturally, appalled by the alleged war crimes supposedly committed by some of the Russian forces, though I note that many were committed by non-Russians such as Chechens, and that some, perhaps many, Russian soldiers have behaved decently.

Some of the alleged crimes may not have happened at all, but it seems clear that at least some have, and there is no doubt that civilian infrastructure, such as apartment buildings, have been targeted. That is terrible, though whether it counts legally as a “war crime” will depend on whether Ukrainian fighters were ensconced therein.

The Russian Army must shoot its own looters and rapists, and make the punishments known to the world.

An army without discipline is just a rabble, or rampaging mob. Putin must put steel and backbone into his army. Immediately.

Leaving legalities aside, for the Ukrainian civilians, and their companion animals, this is a terrible situation. The invasion should have been a swift, overwhelming, and almost bloodless seizure of Kiev and the rest of Ukraine east of the Dnieper, not the horrible bloody mess that has developed.

I have blogged in previous posts that Stalin would have been shooting generals and intelligence chiefs by now. I have just yesterday read that Putin has detained some 150 top military and intelligence personnel. That is, I think, as much as he can do in his position, overtly at least.

The sheer inefficiency and negligence of the Russian Army and intelligence components (apparently parts of the FSB and GRU) has been stunning. Putin must, quite rightly, be furious.

I do not rule out actual treachery. The Western allies seem remarkably well-informed, though that did not prevent them making the same error as both Putin and me, i.e. thinking that the invasion would be almost a walkover, in the usual racing term.

I recall that, in 1941, Hitler had to persuade his generals that the invasion of the Soviet Union would not be as hard as they imagined. As he said to them, “kick in the front door and the whole rotten structure will come crashing down!

Hitler was right, but where he was not right was in assuming that the incapacity of the Red Army, and the decrepitude of the Soviet Union, in the initial phas, would continue forever. In the event, despite a relatively swift approach to Moscow, the weather, events, fresh Siberian troops sent from the east, and a split in German strategic aims, meant that the German advances faltered, stalled, then stopped. The Red Army proved that it had resilience under new commanders.

The Russian Army in the Ukraine of 2022 has been pathetic in all ways, but the story is not yet at an end.

Fresh manpower reserves, elimination or demotion of useless generals, new weapons, new equipment, an increase of armoured pressure on strategic points (Schwerpunkten) will, or can, tip the balance in Ukraine east of the Dnieper. Missile strikes on Ukrainian fuel supplies and arms dumps in all areas of Ukraine can help to turn the tide in the east.

Alison Chabloz

Readers of this blog will probably be aware that persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, was convicted last Thursday of an offence under the notorious anti-free-speech Communications Act 2003, s.127, which is due to be repealed this year (to be replaced by other legislation).

This Thursday, 14 April 2022, Alison Chabloz will face a sentencing hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court. 1400 hrs.

Already, solicitors and Counsel are preparing appeal against conviction and (depending on what happens on Thursday) sentence. Any appeal hearing will be heard (eventually) at Crown Court.

The newspaper noted, the Manchester Evening News, seems to hate anything to do with European race and culture. I can only assume that there is a strong Jewish element there.

In fact, the first picture is a poster from about 1943, not 1917, but the tweet’s overall message is right.

So Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer wants to introduce a Cuban-style block-and-neighbourhood police state in the UK. Much as some of the country is out of control socially, that is just one more reason not to vote Labour.

The world population must be reduced; the proportion of humans of European descent must be very greatly increased. Das ist’s!

Ukraine situation

[Daily Mail map showing the state of play in the east/southeast of Ukraine as of 9 April 2022]

It seems that Russian forces have withdrawn not only from the Kiev area but from the area north of Kiev generally. Without taking Kiev, there is no real victory, no matter what else happens.

It seems now that the Russian strategic aims in the short term are to secure and hold the Donbass area, encircle and capture or destroy the Ukrainian forces there, then to push from the north (Kharkov area), the south, and the east, creating a line broadly Kharkov-Dnipro [former Dnepropetrovsk] and down to, or linking with, Russian forces already occupying the Sea of Azov littoral.

If the Russians can do all that, then (once Dnipro and Zaporozhye are taken or besieged) they will have about a fifth of Ukraine (half of Ukraine east of the Dnieper) under their control.

In other news, it seems that the UK is sending anti-ship missiles to Odessa. If Russian ships start to be sunk from Odessa, then it is not unlikely that the response will be swift and brutal. The city of Odessa may be completely destroyed by missiles and artillery if the Russian Black Sea Fleet comes under serious attack. Very sad from the historical and aesthetic point of view (and, of course, the humanitarian one).

It looks as though the Russians are degrading the Ukrainian fuel reserves and supply lines. Without fuel, the Kiev regime forces will become little more mobile than the armies of Napoleon and Wellington.

Ammunition continues to run out for the Ukrainian forces.

Despite msm reports etc, this still looks like a winnable military situation for Russia, in the short to medium term. I read today that (as predicted in this blog) Russia is now calling up recently-active reserves, i.e. former soldiers who are still reasonably “current”.

Politically, of course, and in terms of public relations, this Ukraine adventure has been disastrous for Russia, not because of the invasion as such, but because of how it was so badly planned and executed. Also, because of how unsuccessful it has been, overall. Pathetic, and terrible in all ways.

Autarky in Russia

I have blogged previously about how some leading 20thC thinkers saw the future of Russia: Rudolf Steiner and Valentin Tomberg in particular. About how Russia would eventually bring into being the next world age, the 6th Post-Atlantean Age, from about 3,500 AD: see, e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Steiner; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg; https://rudolfsteinerquotes.wordpress.com/2019/10/09/the-sixth-post-atlantean-epoch-of-culture-will-be-more-spiritual-3/; https://www.wellspringbookshop.co.uk/articles/the-war-of-all-against-all/.

I have often thought how Russia needs a degree of isolation in order for the seed of that future age not to be poisoned by whatever now exists in the world, centred on “the West”, meaning on North America, Britain, and then western and central continental Europe.

Ironically, it now appears that it is the West itself which is sending Russia into that isolation, via economic and cultural sanctions.

The idea of autarky (self-sufficiency)[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autarky] has found favour in Russia in recent decades, notably in the writings of Alexander Dugin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Dugin].

Russia is one of the few countries in the world which can, if necessary, do without the rest of the world, in economic terms. 72 times the size of the UK, and 2-3 times the size of the USA (depending on whether Alaska is included), Russia has the land, the climatic zones, the varied natural and human resources, to make autarky work.

Russia could create an entirely different form of human society. It tried and failed already, with Marxism-Leninism, but that was building houses of straw. On another basis, such an attempt can succeed.

Ukraine

[Daily Mail graphic showing the apparent state of play as of 4 April 2022]

The alleged (and, if true, appalling) crimes said to have been committed by Russian forces in the Kiev area have trashed Russia’s reputation even more than was already the case.

Despite the brutal history of both Imperial Russia and the Soviet Union, and despite the cruelties inflicted by Russian and other troops on the conquered Axis nations of the 1940s (notably on the peoples of Germany, Austria, and Hungary), the overall (or, perhaps, parallel) reputation of Russia and Russians as a cultured people never completely died. I begin to fear, now, that that reputation has all but died in the West, at least among the relatively uneducated masses, and that Russia is seen now, by many, as a barbarous and cruel nation and people.

The Russian Army evidently lacks discipline, a fact shown not only by the alleged war crimes (assuming reports are accurate), but by the pathetic planning and execution of the invasion itself, and also by the reports of Russian soldiers fraternizing with the Ukrainian civilians (and so being poisoned with spiked cakes, pies, booze etc). We see reports of Russian soldiers looting shops and homes, and it is no excuse to say that, historically, many armies at war (including British and American) have committed some such acts at times.

Putin, for all the NWO/ZOG propaganda against him, is not Stalin, and Russia in 2022 is not the Soviet Union.

Stalin would have shot generals, intelligence officers, and lower-ranked persons in large numbers by now, for their lack of discipline, for their lack of performance, and for the bad impression of Russia given by them, an impression now spread across the world.

Putin cannot copy Stalin. He has not the power, has not the —or any proper— ideology, and has not the power structure (including a facade of “law”) to permit him such freedom of action.

Putin and Putinism was, like the Yeltsin years of shambles, a transitional phase between Sovietism and the future. “Was?” Well, unless Russia changes drastically soon, Putin and Putinism are history, not because of the very poor behaviour of some of the Russian soldiers, but because of the sheer failure of almost every aspect of this “operation”. Also, because the standards of living of Russians will now decline without any —even notional— gain or benefit.

Below, some of the recent devastation:

[devastated suburban road in Bucha, Kiev district, Ukraine]

Hard to believe, looking at the Bucha area as it now is, that Bulgakov [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Bulgakov], born in Kiev, whose original main family home is now a museum there, and who was author of the book The White Guard (about the various contending forces in Ukraine between the start of the Russian Civil War and the period just before the establishment of Soviet power) had a pleasant summer cottage in Bucha.

[Bulgakov’s pre-revolutionary family home in Kiev itself, now a museum: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Bulgakov_Museum]

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_White_Guard; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_War_of_Independence.

Looking at the terrible aftermath of war in that Kiev suburb (nearby town) of Bucha, and then seeing [below] Bucha city park as it was in summer a year or two ago, and essentially as it was up until the recent invasion and war, makes one fear for such places not only in Ukraine but in Poland, Germany, France and, yes the UK too; even in the USA.

[city park, Bucha, Ukraine, before invasion]

We see more and more calls for more armament to be shipped to the Kiev regime. The world is being pushed, by hidden conspiratorial groups in the West, towards world war, or at least NATO-Russia war.

One sees silly people saying “Russia only has the GDP of Italy!” as if that is in any way relevant. The war of 1914-18, the war of 1939-45 (for Russia, 1941-45), those wars had economic imperatives, but a nuclear war between east and west has no such imperatives; it will, or would, be over too quickly for economic strength to play much part.

One also sees “NATO has many times the nuclear power of Russia“. Again, irrelevant. Once you’re dead, you’re dead and, in most cases, you are as dead if one nuclear missile lands on you as you are if ten or twenty land on you. Something for the citizens (and political leaders) of London, Washington, New York, Seattle, LA, Houston, Chicago etc to think about.

Yes, NATO could destroy Russian cities as well as straight military targets, but some of the countryside would be left, and some of the people, maybe even some cities, in a country 72x the size of the UK and 2x the size of the (contiguous) USA.

What would be left of the UK if, say, London, Southampton, Portsmouth, Bristol, Plymouth, Birmingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh, Liverpool and Manchester were all wiped out? Not a lot. That’s with 10 missiles. Russia has 6,200, we are told.

If the, say, 20, 30, 40 largest American cities were wiped out, there would be people, areas, even towns left, but it would take a century for the US to really recover. The UK? I am not sure that it would ever really recover.

France? A large country, almost three times the size of the UK, but if its top ten cities were destroyed, France as a state would be gone, certainly for many decades, possibly for centuries.

I am disturbed to see people in the UK, including some of the less-intelligent politicians (eg Johnny Mercer MP) almost saying “bring it on“, re. nuclear war with Russia. And why? Over the Jew-ruled failed “state” of Ukraine? It’s just mad.

As for shipping tanks, planes etc to the Kiev regime, that just prolongs the suffering in Ukraine, as well as making it quite likely that Russia will attack NATO forces or supply chains directly.

What about the strategic situation in Ukraine itself? As I thought right from the start, the aim seems to be to seize the coastal areas, and also the part of Ukraine east of the Dnieper river. However, I fail to see how that is sustainable if Kiev itself is left in the hands of the Zelensky regime.

Kiev is on both banks of the Dnieper, but the important and historic parts are mostly on the western side. If Kiev is not taken by Russian forces, then the holding of much of eastern Ukraine (the northern sector of the east) becomes, surely, unsustainable, because arms, equipment, ammunition, and forces will be channelled through Kiev region to attack the Russian-held areas to the east.

Everything depends on Putin, and whether he can carry with him his military and intelligence “top brass” in any attempt to seize back the initiative.

Hard to see that the defenders of all the presently-besieged cities will be able to keep going for very long in terms of food, as well as ammunition, but human beings are remarkable creatures at times. I daresay that the Ukrainian fighters will still be eating after the civilians have starved.

Looking at the conflict as if through the eyes of Putin, the odds must be on escalation rather than withdrawal.

We know more or less where Russian forces are, but what we, as Western observers, do not know in any detail, is where are the Kiev-regime forces. I have read accounts in online newspapers etc to the effect that most active Ukrainian forces are in the east and south-east, which seems credible, looking at the resistance in those sectors. If, then, Russian forces can defeat those resisting forces, huge numbers of Russian troops will be available to redeploy, either to the Kiev area or to the occupation of the rest of east-of-Dnieper Ukraine.

Ukraine is now not in any sense a functioning state. It has no legitimate government (and has banned most opposition parties) but, more importantly, it cannot import or export by sea, because its ports are blockaded, occupied, or under attack, its domestic market for anything except food is all but non-existent, its industrial centres are mostly occupied or ablaze, and its farm produce can only be exported by road, making it uneconomic.

More facemask nonsense

Readers of this blog will know how I have opposed the facemask nonsense for the past two years. I have now just seen a photo of Kim Jong-Un this week, pointedly not wearing a facemask, while all the underlings around him are wearing the useless muzzles.

Just as in the West. Same set-up: the “important” person or persons not wearing facemasks, while all the “unimportant” persons are wearing them, and forced to do so. As often said, this has nothing at all to do with health and safety.

Memories of the Strait of Gallipoli

I remember well driving down the deserted Gallipoli Peninsula in April 2001, eventually reaching the ferry across from the collection of small buildings on that side, to what is now called Canakkale, the town on the other side of the water. Darkness was about to fall as we drove, with only a handful of other cars, motorbikes, and small trucks, onto the deck of the ferry.

[the Canakkale ferry]

I see from the Daily Mail report that the —I presume— now-superseded ferry crossing took 90 minutes. In my memory, the crossing took only about 30 minutes, which shows how faulty memory can be, I suppose.

[the very recently opened Canakkale Bridge, Turkey]

The return journey, three months later, in July of 2001, and in a very hot daytime, was considerably busier; the small ferry was full of cars, though mostly Turkish. As mentioned, I had driven in April from the UK to Turkey (eventually to Mediterranean Turkey), but only a very few foreigners from Western Europe then did that (and maybe few do even in 2022).

I spent about 3 days in Canakkale in April 2001; a large town, though not busy at that time of year (it was rather cold, with even a dusting of snow on the ground one day, and drizzly another day).

21 years ago. It seems almost like a different life…

Ukraine

I read that, for the first time, a Ukrainian missile has destroyed an arms storage area in Russia itself, at Belgorod, some 50 miles inside Russian territory. That certainly plays into the hands of Putin, who makes the point, at least impliedly, that Moscow is only 300 miles from Ukraine at the nearest point.

We read in the Western msm that Russian troops are pulling back from some areas near Kiev (or, as BBC, Sky etc have decided to call it, “Keeev“).

Kiev is essential to the outcome of this invasion which has become a war. Failing to secure Kiev means, pretty much, losing the war, especially for Putin and Russia.

If the Russian plan was (as I think, and suggested, was the case) to take over at least both Ukraine east of the river Dnieper, and the littoral areas of Ukraine on and near the Black Sea and Sea of Azov coasts, i.e. about a third to a half of the entire country, then Kiev had and has to be taken, because a. it is the accepted capital of Ukraine; b. it is the largest city (3 million inhabitants, pre-invasion); c. it sits on the river Dnieper between the east and west of Ukraine.

If Putin really does stick just with the two regions of the southeast centred on Donetsk and Lukhansk, or even those regions and also the eastern cities (the largest by far being Kharkov), then Russia has, despite any gained territory, lost this war.

Putin and Russia can only succeed if Kiev is taken and held, if all eastern Ukraine is taken (and held), and if all coastal areas (including the city of Odessa) are taken and held.

What should have been and could have been a swift operation lasting maybe a week, and resulting in both an easy victory and in little loss of life, with the Jewish regime of Zelensky eliminated, and a new government installed, has become a bloody, painful, and horrible mess because the Russian General Staff failed, because the GRU failed, because the SVR failed, and because the organization of Russia’s vast army has been shown to be sluggish, shambolic, and unfit for duty. The same seems to be true of many of the Russian soldiers.

Stalin would have shot a hundred senior military and intelligence officers by now.

This brings into question the whole nature of the “Putinist” regime in Russia. The old Soviet Union was dying in the 1980s (“the Soviet knight dying inside his rusting armour“, so to speak), but even so still functioned.

Yeltsin’s chaotic regime, which I myself saw at first hand in the Moscow of 1993, permitted the (mainly) Jew oligarchs to exploit the bejesus out of Russia. Putin came in as national leader in 1999, and since then has in many respects improved life in Russia from what it was under Yeltsin, and also upgraded the armed forces. What Putin has not been able to do is to formulate an ideology that goes beyond Great-Russian nationalism.

The “Putinist” facade of ideology, following on from Soviet Marxism-Leninism, and also following the crazed and chaotic crony-capitalism under Yeltsin, is a mere pastiche: some Great-Russian nationalism, a bit of Russian Orthodox traditional religion, a more statist form of crony-capitalism, a bit of Western consumerism; a bit of this, a bit of that.

When push came to shove, the ideological emptiness at the core of Putinism was unable to withstand any pressure. Look at the stories coming out of Ukraine: soldiers deserting, with their weapons (including a tank!), and for money and a passport out; soldiers having to loot grocery stores because they are not fed; ill-discipline generally.

Even if some of the stories are Kiev-regime propaganda, not all are. Morale in the invading army is obviously at rock-bottom, and the lack of any proper ideology is central to what must be seen as near-failure to complete the mission in Ukraine.

The death, hurt, and destruction now being inflicted on civilians and their companion animals (and their homes) is quite sickening, and need never have happened.

Having said all that, Russia can still at least complete the outline of this invasion. It must now either take or destroy the cities of the east and south now being besieged. With extra armies brought from reserves, it must be possible to take most of those cities almost intact; how much more fuel, food, and ammunition can the defenders have?

Once Russia has secured the major cities and rural sections of the east and south, it can move on blockaded Odessa (the third-largest city after Kiev and Kharkov) and then, with the entire east and south secured, on Kiev itself.

Everything would be easier for Russia if Zelensky himself could be located and either captured or eliminated. Why was that, in the pre-invasion period, not prioritized and carried out by the GRU or SVR?

Even if Russia prevails, it will now be a bitter victory, and a bitter harvest, but the alternative is for Russia to lose, and that will be followed at some point by the fall of Putin, and by a Russia in chaos again, bearing in mind the Western sanctions.

Russia needs to find a new ideology in which it can believe.

Russia in Ukraine needs to make some game-changing moves. Soon.

The fact that part-Jew chancer and liar “Boris”-idiot was ever made MP, Cabinet minister, and now Prime Minister?

The fact that the sheep-population accepted, most of them, the “Covid” police state, facemask nonsense etc?

The fact that the sheep-population will not do anything serious to protest against, stlll less stop, the black/brown migration invasion (even to the extent of voting for anti-immigration candidates)?

The fact that many, perhaps most, Brits seem to think that Ukraine is somehow allied to the UK, and that the corrupt Jewish regime there is somehow worth supporting, or even going to war on behalf of?

The fact that there is, really, no Parliamentary Opposition now?

How about the fact that, by maybe as early as 2040, the UK will probably be majority non-white?

Of course Blair still wants it. He’s evil, and a creature of Evil.

As always, see how many blank spaces there are, mostly the result of (still-intensifying) Twitter censorship over the past year.

Scottish Labour

I usually try to steer clear of Scottish politics, but the madness of it at least equals anything seen south of Hadrian’s Wall.

The Scottish Labour Party is pretty much dead on its feet. Only 1 MP out of a possible 59 at Westminster, and 22 MSPs out of a possible 129 at Holyrood. Even in local government, Labour has bombed, now holding only 249 out of 1227 local council seats in Scotland. The contrast with Scottish Labour’s historical high points is stark.

Labour had 56 out of 72 Scottish MPs 1997-2005, and historically held at least 30 Scottish seats at Westminster. In fact, the present position is its worst ever— even in 1910, in its first General Election, it scored 2 MPs: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Labour#House_of_Commons.

Actually, in terms of the popular vote, Scottish Labour’s best performance was in 1966 (49.8%), and its worst was in 2019, at 18.6%, less precipitous a fall than in terms of seats, but that’s First Past The Post voting for you.

In the Scottish Parliament, there has been a steady decline in Scottish Labour seats, from 56 out of 129 in 1999, to 22 out of 129 in 2021. Scottish Labour has not been even in coalition government in Scotland since 2007.

In the now-irrelevant European elections, Scottish Labour, which once had 7 out of 8 Scottish seats in the European Parliament, declined to flat zero (out of 6) by 2019 (9.3% of the popular vote).

Incidentally, Scottish Labour is now headed by a Glasgow-born Pakistani, who apparently has a £5M share in a family grocery business: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anas_Sarwar.

Scottish Labour’s problem is at one with that of UK Labour generally— the disappearance of the industrial proletariat. In addition to that, Labour ground has been taken by the faux-nationalist and sort-of social-democratic SNP.

As for the young lady who wants to lead the youth wing of Scottish Labour, she sounds like a caricature from the days of Michael Foot, with her talk of “picket lines” etc. Ha ha! Asinine or what?!

Amusing memory

A memory was just triggered by something I saw.

My Anglo-Russian girlfriend in the 1980s, seven years older than me, once told me about the time when, as a young (about 19-y-o) student, she was sent from the UK (in or about 1971) to see her relatives in Leningrad (those who, unlike her mother and others, had not fled as children from the Bolshevik revolution, or coup d’etat, in late 1917), to improve her spoken Russian (her degree course was in Russian and French).

The assembled Russian aunts, uncles etc asked what she did in her leisure time at Cambridge University. She said that she had a part-time job in a pub, in order to socialize, and to make a little extra money at the same time.

So far so good, except that (her colloquial Russian still being rudimentary despite her background and university studies) she translated “pub” (ie “public house”) as “publichny dom“, which is literally “public house”, but in Russian is actually the colloquial term for a brothel, or bordello.

There ensued a shocked silence, then questions from her aunts and uncles, such as “does your mother know?!” (“Oh, yes, my parents both said that it would be good for me to do that work, and meet people from various walks of life”) and “do other girls at the University do it?” (“Oh, yes, many do…a way to make some money and enjoy some evenings, and not difficult once you get used to it” etc…).

Eventually, one of her uncles realized that the problem was linguistic, not her morals or the decadence of Western society…

I predicted something like this many years ago. There is really little difference between a late-term foetus and a young baby. Many people are born prematurely, are usually completely healthy, and some go on to to be of world-historic significance (historically, St. Paul, for one). A foetus is dependent upon its mother, but a baby (human) is also completely dependent, unable to live independently. In fact, it is an irrefutable fact that a human child is only gradually less dependent; it takes years.

The evil displayed in that proposed Californian legislation is a sign of the times. Many of the most significant (and often negative) cultural manifestations affecting Europe, and other parts of the world, have emerged over the past century from California.

Russia and Ukraine have always been, if not one entity, then at least bound together. The very word “Ukraine” comes from a root meaning something like “outskirts”, in other words an outer part of Russia. Little Russia, as it was once called. In the 19thC, Tchaikovsky called his Second Symphony, the “Little Russian“.

A typically-meaningless example of Twitter logic: if you removed the “black and brown” vote from UK elections (since about 1990), you would never have had the Labour governments of the 1997-2010 period, and you would in fact never have any Labour-label government again.

The forces of Evil usually pose as “good”.

Those who are pushing for war or near-war with Russia over Ukraine (a territory with which, historically, the UK has had little connection, ever, incidentally) should realize that even actual chess games and poker games have led to death of participants in the past, when one player is pushed and pushed and pushed…

A few more thoughts about Ukraine strategy

This invasion was mishandled from the start by the Russian General Staff and Russian intelligence orgs. It should have been meticulously planned, but obviously was not. It has more in common with the pathetic and botched Soviet invasion of Finland in 1939-40 than with, say, the Blitzkrieg advances of the German Reich in 1939, 1940, and 1941, or indeed with the well-planned and executed Red Army advance into the Reich from 1943 to early 1945. Terrible. Heads must roll.

The Russians should have planned this so that they could have pressed a metaphorical button and said…GO!

The invasion only came after weeks of pointless sabre-rattling. Why? It should have come, as far as possible, as a bolt from the blue.

The first step, before ANY ordinary military or naval action, should have been the assassination of Zelensky and other leading political and military executives of the Kiev regime.

I have no idea whether the Russians now have much in the way of the old Spetsnaz and “Olympic Spetsnaz” special forces. In Soviet times, “Olympic Spetsnaz” units (largely composed of Olympic athletes and persons on a similar physical level) were reserved for tasks of the highest strategic importance, such as (against NATO states) destruction of missile launch sites and early-warning stations, elimination of important communications hubs, and the assassination of heads of state, heads of government, and the highest-ranking military officers.

The elimination of the Zelensky cabal should have been top priority, not just one extra idea.

Once Zelensky and his cabal were no longer active, or almost simultaneously, the Russian Spetsnaz could have taken down any civil and military communications not rocketed, and created chaos, especially in Kiev.

The Russians could then have concentrated all available forces on capturing Kiev by Blitzkrieg attack, starting with overwhelming long-range missile attacks on all important government, communications and TV/radio buildings (including police stations and Army headquarters etc), followed by a mass parachute descent by the VDV (Russian parachute shock troops) direct onto those open areas not too heavily-wooded around Kiev, such as airports. Even onto wide roads and into main squares. Among the areas and facilities to be secured— airports, main railway stations, bridges, major routes going north and east.

A risky plan, true, but the shock value of thousands of parachutes descending would have been enough to cause mass panic in Kiev. Roads jammed with destroyed cars, buses, and trucks, a headless Ukrainian government apparat, and any Ukrainian military and police personnel eliminated on sight.

Long-range rockets would have taken out at least some of Kiev’s air defences, as previously located by intelligence work.

At that point, before NATO, Biden, Boris-idiot etc even had time to say anything, let alone do anything, the main Russian invasion contingents should have swiftly begun to approach Kiev, from the north especially. At the nearest point, the distance from the Russian border to Kiev is 200 miles.

With Kiev’s airports under command, and air defences damaged or destroyed, more Russian forces could have been flown in, fighting their way into the heart of the city and to nearby strategic areas such as the already-secured bridges over the Dnieper.

On the same day, or the following day, Russian naval forces should have begun to blockade and attack the Black Sea and Sea of Azov coastal areas, while other forces began (as they have done in the real invasion) to encircle or attack the main cities of the east, notably Kharkov. Strategic targets in the west and centre of the country should have been attacked at the same time, or not long after.

The Donbass should not, in the short-term, have been a priority. Even had the Ukrainian forces stationed there for 7-8 years broken through, they would have nowhere to go, Donetsk being a border city, except into the “endless” and sparsely-populated prostor (open space) of southern Russia.

Kiev is the jewel in the crown.

Once the above had happened, there should have been the installation of, and proclamation of, an outline puppet government. Any resistance put down firmly, using pre-gathered intelligence.

With no Kiev government, with communications in chaos, with Russian troops pouring into Kiev, the remnants of the Ukrainian Army and its ragtag volunteer forces would have been leaderless, in the dark, and easily overwhelmed, at least east of the Dnieper.

As we know, the above reads like a pipe-dream compared to what actually happened.

The one single aspect that has all but killed the Russian invasion has been delay. It was delay that enabled the Kiev regime to start organizing a defence, delay that enabled the cities to be turned into fortresses, delay that enabled Zelensky to parade on the world, media (and social media) stage, delay that enabled NATO and others to start to send advanced weaponry.

As things stand, the Russians are still just keeping things stable, overall, but that is not enough.

Below, the Daily Mail assessment:

It can be seen that even the Daily Mail, while noting everything that has “gone wrong” with the invasion (with most of which assessment I can agree), still also notes that, on almost all active fronts, Russia is “winning”, albeit at a terrible cost (both for Russia and for Ukrainian civilians— and I can only agree with that, too).

There are pieces available to Putin which he has not as yet played. The first is that of the Belarussian armed forces. Relatively small, the regular Belarus Army nonetheless could exert pressure in the north/northwest, which might help the Russians in that region.

There are advanced Russian planes that have not yet been much used because they might be shot down by Ukraine’s donated NATO weaponry.

Putin can call upon reserves amounting to several million, in theory, but any fresh levies have to be equipped, transported, and fed.

Putin can, if he so chooses, flatten Ukraine’s main cities without using nuclear weapons. A terrible thing, and not at all what he wants, but he might still do that rather than “lose” the war. If he did that to all the large unoccupied eastern/central cities except Kiev, then his forces would be able to focus on and take Kiev without destroying it (and its historic landmarks).

Above all, whatever happens, Putin and Russia retain their ace-in-the-hole, the Russian strategic rocket forces and nuclear-capable air force and navy. 6,200 nuclear missiles and bombs. That power may not be useful directly in Ukraine, but keeps NATO out of the war, so far.

The “great fact” of popular strategy is that “Russia cannot be conquered”, and both Hitler and Napoleon were defeated trying to beat the odds on that.

An interesting thing is to pick any random area of Russia south or east of Moscow and look at it on Google Earth. Cities exist, yes, but once you are outside them, in the country, you are quickly in the vast landscape that made battle-hardened Wehrmacht officers tremble.

That vastness, with the Russian people (and their sense of nationality) makes Russia the toughest nut of all.

Even a nuclear war would probably not entirely destroy the essence of Russia.

State of play at Kiev, as of 25 March:

In the Kiev area, Russia is not pushing forward, and may not even be maintaining position.

I still say that, in the overall war, and despite the limited Ukrainian counter-attacks, Russia is slowly winning this, though —as also said before— at a terrible cost in human and animal suffering.

The Kiev regime must be running out of fuel in the east and centre. Fuel dumps and storage areas have been rocketed by the Russians. Food is also running out, perhaps has run out, in most of the besieged cities, though not, it appears, in Kiev itself.

Russia will not have “won” this war unless and until it has taken over and occupied all of Ukraine east of the river Dnieper (and Kiev) and, realistically, all of the coastal regions and ports, including Odessa.

For Russia simply to retain the Donbass would be unsustainable, both militarily and politically. This is now, pretty much, a fight to the death.

Anything less than occupation of the half of Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and south of a line 50-100 miles north of the Black Sea/Sea of Azov, will surely mean the end of Putin, not only politically but actually, literally. If Putin were to go into exile, a very unlikely thing, where would he go? What state would shelter him? Not Belarus, I think. Not China. North Korea? An unappealing prospect for someone akin to a modern “tsar”, to live in some remote, and guarded, North Korean villa.

No, I think that Putin will fight this war to the bitter end, even if that means nuclear war with “NATO” (the USA).

Looking a few weeks ahead, we can see the prospect that, for all of the Kiev-regime propaganda, Kharkov and most of the other cities presently besieged will be controlled by Russia, and that resistance will be confined largely to the west of the country, to Odessa, and to Kiev. By that time, Putin will presumably have decided how to take Kiev, or what else to do to bring this terribly-mismanaged episode to a close (at least in the short term).

I have little quarrel with Burgon’s actual comment, taking it as it stands, but pious hopes and wishes count for little if not grounded in reality.

With the ending of the Cold War, it would have been possible for the advanced parts of the world to remove the backward Saudis, Qataris and Kuwaitis etc from rulership over the Gulf, and just use “their” hydrocarbon resources (entirely discovered, developed, refined, and utilized by Europeans and Americans) for the purposes of civilization.

We are in the midst of a gigantic propaganda campaign, and it is certainly not a Russian one. The Russians, though, have made it easy for the Ukrainian regime (in fact, the New World Order conspiracy); the hamfisted and now brutal Russian attacks have reinforced the anti-Russian propaganda being pumped out 24/7.

Ship them all back to Nigeria.

Idiots of the Piers Morgan type are basically puppets-on-a-stick, saying whatever is required of them by the people who really matter.

Piers Morgan would no doubt disbelieve his own eyes, were Russian nuclear missiles to start landing in his native Essex, and preventing him from taking half a dozen holidays a year in the Maldives, Seychelles etc.

The old Soviet Union was sometimes described as “Upper Volta with rockets”. Well, OK (though that was obvious hyperbole anyway), but the great fact was that those rockets existed. 6,200 still exist, upgraded and mostly ready to launch.

Yes, of Russia’s 6,200 missiles (and nuclear bombs), only some will successfully launch and reach their target areas. Probably half, or maybe fewer, even as few as a quarter. So about 1,500. Of which about a tenth might be aimed at UK targets. Call it 150. 150 nuclear missiles, landing in the UK, each one capable of destroying almost anything within a radius of maybe 10 miles or more. Just one, landing in Westminster, would affect directly as far out as the outer London suburbs. That leaves 149 other such missiles striking elsewhere in the UK: Portsmouth. Southampton. Every large Army base. Every airfield. Every major city and town.

Nein danke, Piers “useful idiot” Morgan.

Seems that some people need to be reminded of a few facts:

#Ukraine has only been an independent state for 31 years;

#Prior to 1991, Ukraine was merely part of the Soviet Union and, before that, of the Russian Empire, stretching back for hundreds of years;

#Ukraine is a corrupt and shambolic state run by a profoundly undemocratic Jewish cabal;

#The UK has no alliance with Ukraine, no military treaty, and no obligation under international law to funnel arms to its illegitimate rulers;

#Sending arms to Ukraine only prolongs its agony.

Nearest town square. Firing squad. End.

Please refer to my earlier comment.

I do not generally approve of the death penalty. I however distinguish between that and what amounts to a public health measure…

The sad fact is that the organs of the UK State (eg police, CPS, MI5/MI6 etc), and the institutions of society, to a large extent, now work against the interests of the British people. Wilfully so.

I was only just blogging, in the past few days, about how Russia will, perforce, turn to autarky, or semi-autarky. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autarky.

Looking at that blog post, it is almost incredible to see quite how many tweets used in it have been expunged by Twitter in the past months, mostly I think recently. The censorship now is heavily oppressive, not far from amounting to tyranny.

Where does Russia go from here?

I want to look beyond the immediate military situation in Ukraine, to where Russia is placed culturally and geopolitically in big-picture terms.

The present situation of Russia vis-a-vis the Western world is that, with some exceptions (notably export of gas), Russia can neither import nor export.

In fact, the new import-export regime imposed on Russia is far more strict than the limited embargo imposed on the Soviet Union and its satellites during the Cold War: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordinating_Committee_for_Multilateral_Export_Controls.

The CoCom regime was focussed mainly on military applications, whereas the new sanctions affect almost everything.

There has always been, certainly since the time of Peter the Great (17thC) a tension between Russia and the West. That was for a long time more evident in Russia itself than in the West. Peter was a Westernizer, who wanted to drag old Russia into the modern age. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_the_Great. To that end, Peter visited the upcoming mercantile and military powers of his time, particularly England and Holland.

Catherine the Great [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine_the_Great], a German, was another modernizer and Westernizer (up to a point) but, in an interesting parallel to Stalin’s later rule, also intensified the harshness of serfdom.

The Westernizing tendency in Russia continued to exist in tandem with its opposite, the Slavophile tendency, which held that the Slavs, led by Russia, had their own unique future mission, and should not be too affected, contaminated by, or corrupted by Western habits and values. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavophilia, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westernizer.

While, in the 19th and 20th centuries, there were both tendencies in both government and intellectual life, Russian statesmen tended to be Westernizers, people such as Witte [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergei_Witte], whereas the Slavophile tendency was stronger in the worlds of philosophy and literature. One thinks of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky etc and, later Soloviev [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Solovyov_(philosopher)], Berdyaev [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolai_Berdyaev] and others.

These categories were not strictly drawn, though. Some writers were more Westernizing (e.g. Turgenev) and some governmental figures more Slavophile, e.g. Pobedonostsev [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konstantin_Pobedonostsev], whose slogan was ” Orthodoxy, Autocracy, Nationality” [Правосла́вие, самодержа́вие, наро́дность]. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthodoxy,_Autocracy,_and_Nationality.

Tsars Nikolai I and Alexander III were quite Slavophile, others (notably Alexander II, who liberated the serfs) more influenced by the West.

Slavophiles tended to distrust, inter alia, Western notions of democracy, reliance on technology, and the influence of Jews and Jewish notions: “The characteristics of the Jewish race are parasitic; for their sustenance they require the presence of another race as “host” although they remain aloof and self-contained” [Pobedonostsev]. Again, though, a line cannot be strictly drawn.

There was always a ying/yang aspect to the Slavophile/Westernizer dichotomy; a little bit of each in the other.

The Soviet regime likewise had Slavophile elements, more obviously so after 1945, though it was fundamentally a Westernizing movement: “Socialism means Soviet power plus the electrification of the whole country” [Lenin].

There was a paradox, though. The dictatorial Westernizing movement of Bolshevism, that became Sovietism, could only maintain its power via a degree of enforced isolation from the West, which might be called, arguably, a Slavophile policy, at least in effect..

Dissidents against the Soviet regime were sometimes Westernizers (such as Sakharov [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrei_Sakharov], wanting Western civil rights and so on, but also sometimes Slavophiles such as Solzhenitsyn [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Solzhenitsyn].

The Soviet Union from the death of Stalin in 1953, and especially since Khrushchev’s Secret Speech of 1956, was fundamentally Westernizing, trying to copy the West in many respects, if only to try to outdo the West. The West had Concorde, so the Soviet Union had to have “Concordski” (the bungled TU-144). One example.

Since 1989, when Socialism fell (though the Soviet Union walked on, mortally wounded, until 1991), Russia has pursued an almost insane Westernist policy, even under Putin. That may now be reversed, or a different path pursued.

Having said that, Russia, like the Soviet Union before it, will not want to be cut out of Western technological progress. That would seem to suggest both an increase in Russian research and development, and an uptick in intelligence activity, including outright espionage.

The atom bomb secrets of the West were uncovered and captured in the 1940s and 1950s by a combination of huge scientific effort and huge espionage effort. In latter days (1960s through 1980s) the KGB’s “Line X” was the main organization involved in scientific and technical intelligence-gathering, together with, on the military side, the GRU.

We cannot talk about Western influence on Russia (and indeed Europe proper) without considering the often baleful effect of Anglo-American, mainly American, cultural exports. Film, TV, contemporary music. Whether Putin’s Russia has the spirit to stand against that is doubtful. Even the German Reich had to compromise to some extent on popular culture.

It has been said, by such as Rudolf Steiner [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Steiner, and Valentin Tomberg [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg], that the far future will see two races emerge on the Earth, a “good” race based in Russia, and an “evil” race based in North America.

I have blogged before about how Russia, of all countries in the world, could subsist under a system of autarky [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autarky]. It now seems that it may have little choice.

Whether Putin himself, with Russia’s transitional, post-Soviet, and post-Yeltsin form of society, will survive long is an open question. After Putin, the Russian leadership will have to thoroughly reform and reset Russian society, without Western help and without Western interference and exploitation.

A good start, culturally, would be for Russia to eliminate, as far as possible, pop/rock (etc) music. Also, most contemporary American films, and certainly most “sit-coms” and TV dramas.

System politicians in the UK now have to admit one of two possibilities: either they were stupid idiots about “Covid”, or they were the conscious dupes of the transnational “Great Reset” conspiracy.

The hysterical “trans” nonsense has taken over feminism and imprisoned it in a distortion worthy of Kafka.

Have these “erudite apes” (as Hitler called them) ever heard of, say, Animal Farm, or Faithful Ruslan? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faithful_Ruslan.

“Yesterday he was evil and an enemy, but today evil and a friend“, so to speak…

A friend of the NWO, anyway…
