Well, nearly time for breakfast…

Early thought

Whatever the truth of the Ukraine atrocity reports, it is ironic that much of the venom against Russia comes from people in the USA, some influential. You would hardly know that, ever since the Second World War, the USA has been committing atrocities of all sorts (from officially-approved ill-treatment and torture right through to wiping out whole populations with atomic bombs), and against not only enemies in the field but also civilian populations. Where? Where not (almost): Germany, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon (etc).

“Covid” may have been deliberately engineered

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11223335/Covid-19-Worlds-medical-journal-finally-says-virus-come-lab-leak.html

The world’s leading medical journal has conceded that the Covid pandemic could have been sparked by a laboratory leak and admits that the virus may have been engineered by scientists.

...this is a remarkable turnaround for the 199-year-old Lancet, which printed an infamous article condemning suggestions of a lab leak as ‘conspiracy theories’.

However, the journal – which says the world should take ‘seriously’ both main hypotheses – has also suggested the virus could be linked to laboratories in the US, provoking fears it is still promoting China’s cause rather than good science.

As one can see in the extent to which, in the past 8 years, a small but well-funded pack of Jews calling themselves “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] has suborned or influenced several police forces: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/; and see also https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

I myself have never had the “Covid” “vaccine(s)”, let alone the supposed “boosters”. I know a few people who have had them. Unpleasant but probably temporary side-effects in a few cases, but in others far more serious problems, including two people, both younger than me (I am 66) and without any history of heart problems, who have both had to have heart surgery recently; one triple by-pass, one quadruple by-pass.

Same as Canada and Trudeau, mutatis mutandis. Is there not one New Zealander…(?)

I think that it was Valentin Tomberg [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg] who wrote that, starting (if I recall aright) at the end of the 20th century, “the mask of Evil [in the world] will start to come off“.

We can see this in, inter alia, the whole “Covid” situation. Not least, the increasing realization that many of the leaders and leading propagandists of the various countries, and particularly the most important countries of the West, are part of a pretty tight cabal or series of cabals.

Look at, say Jacinda Ardern. Not just Prime Minister of New Zealand, but before that operating at a high level, more or less behind the scenes, in the Labour Party in the UK. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacinda_Ardern.

We are talking about “the usual suspects”, aka “the Wise Men of the West”, including Bilderbergers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilderberg_meeting.

There are probably other, far less public, groups, but all such groups form one basic over-group.

Corbyn has returned to his comfort-zone— playing at “revolutionaries” at pointless and stupid Central London demonstrations.

An ape in a silk suit is still an ape” [old Russian proverb].

A proper government would machine-gun hostile invaders on the beaches, or before they reach shore. That was what warmongering old Churchill wanted to do to any German invaders in 1940, and these untermenschen, and any children they will have, are a far bigger threat to Britain’s future than the German Army ever could have been.

I agree, for once, with Janet Street-Porter. The whole thing has been overdone. Instead of a quiet, dignified series of events, a mass circus in which good taste and real respect has been —partly at least— left behind.

At last the Russian high command is starting to think truly tactically, meaning in this case obliquely.

It will be recalled that the Iraqi Army flooded large areas at one time, in the 1980s and later, both when fighting Iran and when fighting the “Allied forces” (USA, mainly).

I made that point a few days ago on the blog, citing the dictum of Clausewitz about how the ratio “moral” or morale vis a vis the “material” is 3:1.

We tend to forget that, though the southeastern part of Ukraine is a war zone, that does not mean that all areas suffer continuous fighting. Far from it. The Ukraine is about 3x the size of the UK, and nearly 5x the size of England. The southeastern parts known as the Donbass or Don Basin (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) are, together, about half the size of England.

Pound sliding, inflation stoking, and recession likely

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-62923994

Still think that closing down the economy for almost 2 years (because a virus was supposedly killing one out of every thousand people, mostly aged and/or with serious pre-existing health problems), and while doling out “free” money to individuals and companies via “furlough” payments, grants, “loans” etc, was a good policy? Think again.

A delusionary time, but what happens once the funeral of the late Queen has been held?

The death of the late Queen, and the consequent ritual arrangements and spectacles, is occupying the msm in the UK to an almost (?) unprecedented extent.

It may be that the Diana death hysteria of 1997, about which I have heard, and the Silver Jubilee of 1977, were similar; I cannot say, having been out of the UK when those two events occurred. In 1977, I was in Rhodesia, and in 1997 I was in Kazakhstan.

In fact, I only heard of the Diana incident 2-3 days after it happened, when I attended a regular Monday morning meeting at my office in Almaty, the then capital.

The British Embassy opened a book of condolence, and I was told by one of my Embassy contacts that, out of all the ~70 British residents (in the city) of which the Embassy was aware, I was the only one who had not signed (though not because I was hostile to Diana, but because of simple lack of interest).

My non-signing may have also been noted because, about 10 months previously, I had attended by invitation a royal reception at the Ambassador’s official Residence, where I had met and briefly chatted to Prince Charles, as he then was. Also, because I was at the Embassy quite often, at least a couple of times per week.

I have blogged in the past about how, on my return to London a few weeks later, friends told me about the collective psychosis (?) that had descended (on London at least), with pubs full of blubbing drinkers etc.

I am now thinking ahead to the day, or perhaps two or three days after the funeral of the late Queen (next Monday, 19 September 2022). What then?

We as a nation (insofar as Britain still is a nation) face huge economic problems, as well as ingrained social problems. The cloud of illusion all too obvious this week on TV, in the Press etc will blow away, and the country may come down to Earth with a very hard jolt.

The sentiment around the enormous queues going to see the late Queen’s coffin etc is somewhat illusory. The hundreds of thousands of people shuffling toward Westminster, or lining the Mall, are still only about 1% of the whole UK population. The vast majority, almost all in fact, seem to be English/British, i.e. white, and most (that I have seen in photos, on TV etc), are middle-aged or elderly.

This will all look very different in six months’ time.

As has become usual, many of the tweets I reposted a year ago are now only there skeletally, now that so many interesting tweeters have been expelled from Twitter. The Jew-Zionist element is behind most of the purging and “cancelling”.

Thoughts re. the Russian retreat in parts of Ukraine east of the Dnieper

I believe that Clausewitz wrote that, in war, the moral is to the physical in a ratio 3:1.

Morale, esprit de corps, confidence, and belief in the rightness of a cause, as against numbers of soldiers, equipment, arms, ammunition.

Despite the Kiev regime being a horrible, dictatorial, corrupt and Jew-Zionist-led kleptocracy, the simple Ukrainian soldiers at the front think that they are fighting for “Ukraine”, its history and culture, and for some kind of “freedom”. Also, for their homes and families.

However wrongheaded at least part of that is, it is a powerful message and, to those directly involved, congruent.

The Russian soldiers, many of them, are young, naive, not infrequently drunk, often ill-disciplined, and actually have more in common with many of their Ukrainian opposite numbers than with the savage Chechens fighting on the Russian side, and who have stained Russia’s reputation during this conflict.

The Russian soldiers, some of whom have their homes and families as far away as Siberia, have evidently not been properly prepared ideologically for the situation into which they have been thrust. The present Russian Army does not have the propaganda and disciplinary structure provided, in Soviet days, by political commissars and others.

The result of the above factors is that the Ukrainian soldiers’ morale is generally far higher than that of the Russian soldiers.

As previously blogged, the only way Russia is going to get through this is to augment numbers and armament, but principally to think “outside the box” by using shock tactics and, equally importantly, oblique tactics and, above all, unexpected tactics.

NHS news

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11204717/Queen-Elizabeth-NHS-trusts-cancel-hospital-appointments-bank-holiday.html

Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral will take place on Monday September 19 – which has been declared a bank holiday. 

Several NHS Trusts have said that some non-urgent procedures and clinic appointments are to be postponed with King’s College Hospital stating this would be thevast majority‘.

Hip and knee replacements, cataract surgery, maternity checks and some cancer treatments are among the postponed appointments, at a time when NHS data shows nearly 40 per cent of cancer patients had their treatment delayed beyond the two-month maximum.

However NHS England said that Covid vaccination services and urgent and emergency appointments would continue.”

[Daily Mail]

How ludicrous is that? People in great pain, in some cases, people needing knee and hip replacements, people with cancer, all postponed (in some cases for months).

What makes it even more ludicrous is that the useless and quite possibly harmful “Covid” “vaccinations” etc will still be done (with the staff doing that probably getting double or triple pay).

A lot of truth in that (read the whole thread), but it is all too American and “how to get ahead” and “aspirational” for me.

Ridiculous, but in a way what I would have expected from that organization.

I myself have never been to a Center Parcs location, but a couple of people (admittedly about 30 years ago) told me that their impression was not very good. The quite high price did not cover many of the activities offered, for one thing. Those activities have to be paid for on top of the basic price for going there.

It may be better for people who go there with small children, I do not know, but imagine a resort (which is effectively what Center Parcs is, a modern take on the old Soviet “sanatorium” model) that chucks out its guests for one day so that it can virtue-signal re. the funeral of the late Queen. I suppose that staff shortages might be a factor too, but the unexpected holiday is only one day. Surely a skeleton operation could be kept going? Seems wrong to me.

[Update, 14 September 2022: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/sep/13/center-parcs-closes-uk-resorts-queen-funeral.

Center Parcs has backtracked after facing accusations of “ruining people’s holidays”by announcing it would close its UK sites for 24 hours from Monday morning to mark the Queen’s funeral.

However, on Tuesday evening, after an outcry on social media and widespread negative press reports, the company said that it had “reviewed our position regarding the very small number of guests who are not due to depart on Monday and we will be allowing them to stay on our villages rather than having to leave and return on Tuesday”.” [The Guardian]].

Munich: The Edge of War

Saw a film on TV, Munich: The Edge of War, about the talks held in Munich in 1938. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munich_%E2%80%93_The_Edge_of_War.

I would give it 3 out of 5 stars, maybe. Not more.

The Hitler character was, both in character and personality, not so much a portrayal as a caricature.

The locations filmed, and sets— all very good.

Neville Chamberlain was played well by Jeremy Irons, though looking too robust (despite the health problems mentioned); the real Chamberlain was, at that age, more of a grey figure, I think.

The flaws in the film, leaving aside the central assumption (that the Munich Agreement bought Britain time vis a vis Hitler/Germany), were in the small things: the “blacks with everything” agenda, which put a black man in Downing Street as a civil servant, indeed in a fairly senior position. That would have been unthinkable in the Britain of 1938. Also, an Indian woman as niece of Colonel Sir Stewart Menzies, the then Chief of SIS. If not unthinkable, unlikely.

Another absurdity (which had little to do with the main plot, and looked like a “me too” add-on) was that a Jewish woman, openly anti-Hitler, was —sometime in the 1930s— arrested or abducted by the SS, had a Star of David carved into her back, and was then defenestrated, ending up paralyzed and unable to speak.

There is a cultural truth-bending agenda going on, one which distorts history, in particular as to race.

That tweet is from a year ago, but it bears repetition, especially as Blair now goes around the world touting himself as the great retired statesman, pronouncing on grand strategy and high policy…

What a contrast. In fact I wondered, a day or so ago, what the late Queen had thought of the Prime Ministers she had known— Churchill, that flawed titan; then the others, varying in ability and sincerity but mostly, though not all, at least able to play the part and not look totally out of place: Eden, Macmillan, Douglas-Home, Wilson, Heath, Wilson again, Callaghan, Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron (-Levita), May, Johnson, and now Truss.

One sees the general decline in stature, though, over those decades.

Hard to bracket Liz Truss in the same sentence, let alone the same office, as Churchill, much as I think that his policy toward the German Reich was completely wrongheaded.

Churchill got Britain and the Empire involved in that disastrous war which killed off not only the German Reich but also the British Empire and indeed, not far down the line, all the European imperia (French, Spanish, Italian, Belgian, Dutch), and much else besides.

Liz Truss seems intent on creating conflict, or making worse the relations between Russia and the West, or even fomenting a state of war between Russia and the UK. If that were to happen, we should all be joining the late Queen and Churchill sooner than most of us anticipated. Britain could scarcely survive if there were war on the strategic scale.

Biden

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11198817/Bidens-Irish-Catholic-mom-hated-English-told-NOT-bow-Queen-met-1982.html

Biden’s mother sounds as if she was both quite mad and extremely unpleasant. You get that kind of silliness with some Irish-Americans though. I recall being introduced about 31 years ago to some fat woman in New Jersey, an acquaintance of an American friend. Her first words to me were “well, I’m Irish, so I shouldn’t like you!“. A kind of joke, but with a definite edge.

Of course, Irish-Americans are a lot more American than they are Irish. Many of the more ignorant ones seemed (when I was living in the USA in the early 1990s) to think that “England” (always England, not UK or Britain) was in a kind of war with Ireland.

They had no idea that the “war” between not Ireland but the IRA, and the UK authorities, was confined mainly not only to the six counties of Northern Ireland (Ulster, to use the name of the ancient province) but to a few small areas, mostly urban, within that province, and also confined to quite small numbers of the population.

There were exceptions to the prevailing ignorance. The owner of McSorley’s Old Ale House in Manhattan, which I occasionally visited if nearby, was an intelligent man who visited Ireland (the Republic) a couple of times a year (for river fishing). He understood the real situation, but few other Irish-Americans (most of whom had never left American shores, and got their ideas of the world from appallingly-poor American TV news reports) knew any more about it than they did about, say, Iraq.

[John French Sloan, McSorley’s Bar, 1912]

The above painting, though from 1912, shows an almost identical scene to the one I knew in the early 1990s.

In origo, so are “council” and “counsel“. The Monarch’s “counsel” was provided by his or her “council”. In Russian, there is still only one word for both “council” (as in a group of advisers and/or a local or other governmental or political body) and “counsel” (as in “advice“)— “soviet” [совет].

If these reports (from sources supportive of the Kiev regime) are accurate, the Russian leadership will have to escalate the armament used, and soon, or accept bitter, if relatively localized —and possibly temporary— defeat in large parts of the region.

So is Starmer a (?) secret atheist, or possibly even a crypto-Jew? He is, after all, married to a Jewess, and their children are being brought up as if full-Jew. I never was able to discover as to whether, when they hold those ritual Jewish dinners chez Starmer, he wears one of those little round skullcaps (yarmulki).

If Russia becomes again as weak as it was in the 1990s, the Chinese will be able to heavily infiltrate, and perhaps in effect take over, the whole of the one-time Soviet Far East, and possibly all of Eastern Siberia. Maybe in time even all of Siberia.
