“As a former senior British military intelligence officer and Nato planner, I spent 26 years preparing to counter Soviet-style manoeuvres during the Cold War. I’m all too aware that whether Ukraine survives as an independent nation will depend on how each side copes with multiple factors.
One of these, as anyone with rudimentary knowledge of European history knows, is the weather on the Eastern Front.
Russia’s much-anticipated ‘spring offensive’ this year has failed. The calculations behind it were flawed. The frozen ground has thawed quickly, turning large tracts of the country into a quagmire. We saw last year what happened when tanks try to advance over Ukraine’s mud. Despite their caterpillar tracks, the weight of Russia’s 45-ton T-72s meant many were quickly bogged down and had to be abandoned. Ukrainian farmers gleefully looted the wreckages.
This means Russian tanks are, for the moment, largely confined to tracks and roads, making them easy targets for ambush. But the same restrictions apply to Western tanks, which are even heavier.
[by June 2023], ordnance supplied by the West will be pouring into the battle zones. President Zelensky asked for 300 tanks: it is estimated his allies, including other former Soviet states, will provide 700 or more.
Already 350 infantry fighting vehicles and more than 1,000 armoured personnel carriers have been promised, as well as at least 320 self-propelled guns, most of them 155mm artillery.
Training to use this disparate kit will prove time consuming. In peacetime, the Army reckons to spend two years readying a tank brigade for combat. The Ukrainian crews are attempting to learn everything in just a few months.
It’s a mammoth undertaking and that applies to every aspect of the war. After its rapid advances following the invasion last year, Russia held 51,000 square miles of Ukrainian territory.
Since the counter-attack began last summer, the Ukrainians have recaptured about 11,300 square miles — pushing the enemy out of Kyiv, Kherson and Kharkiv. Some parts of the operation were relatively straightforward: for example, trapping the Russians on the western side of the Dnipro river, which cut off their retreat.
But Russia still holds 40,000 square miles (17 per cent) of Ukrainian territory, including the 10,425 square miles of Crimea, which Ukrainian naval commander Vice-Admiral Oleksiy Neizhpapa this week vowed to retake.
Liberating Crimea [“Liberating”?] might be possible in the long term, but it would require a massive amphibious assault on the scale of D-Day. Even if a bridgehead could be established, the Ukrainian army would have to win back the peninsula mile by mile — and many of the inhabitants are pro-Russian.
Crimea was regarded as Ukrainian territory only after Stalin’s death in 1953 and it has been under Russian control again for nearly a decade. Victory would never be guaranteed, even if that gigantic campaign could ever be mounted.
Yet even that prospect is dwarfed by the scale of conflict on the mainland. The battlefront in eastern Ukraine is over 700 miles long, the distance from London to Barcelona. Moscow has committed virtually the whole of the Russian army to the invasion.
Its forces are organised into battalion tactical groups [BTGs], which consist of up to 40 tanks with artillery, armoured vehicles and engineering support. In total, Putin has 168 BTGs, each one a self-contained fighting force with full autonomy — and 115 of them are now in Ukraine.
Latest figures show the Russians have 1,330,900 men on the ground, compared with just half a million Ukrainians. They have 4,182 aircraft, including 1,531 helicopters and 773 fighter jets; Ukraine is far behind, with 312 aircraft, including 113 helicopters and 69 fighters.
Russia has 12,566 tanks, 151,641 armoured vehicles, 6,575 self-propelled guns and 3,887 mobile rocket launchers. In every case, that’s at least four times as many as Ukraine possesses and sometimes six.
Against a smaller but highly motivated army intent on repelling invasion, all the Russians can do is try to hang on to occupied territory. The Ukrainian forces will try to punch holes in the front line, but unless they can sever the supply chains, it’s unlikely their enemy will be routed. Putin will not permit his forces to pull out, however much punishment is inflicted.
Instead, he is playing for time, waiting for elections in the U.S. and Britain next year…“
[Colonel (retired) Philip Ingram, in the Daily Mail].
Russia is certainly not about to “lose” this war, but cannot now win it (however “victory” be defined) without a gamechanging event or tactic coming into play.
The Kiev-regime soldiers and civilians are, at present, more motivated than the Russian side. Like Antaeus, they draw strength from being on their native soil.
In the absence of any coherent ideology, even the flawed past ideology of Sovietism and/or Marxism-Leninism, the Russian government has fallen back on WW2 motifs and on the ludicrous assertion that the corrupt Jew-Zionist dictatorship in Kiev is “Nazi“. Few believe that, even among the ranks of the self-describing “Left” “useful idiots” in Western Europe, the UK, or beyond.
That ideological lack on the Russian side means that it has nothing with which to stiffen morale.
The Daily Mail assessment mentions the upcoming elections in USA and UK. The US Presidential one is the important event. Without American arms and money, Zelensky’s troops must stop fighting.
Looking at that map, the areas in green are those where the Kiev-regime has regained ground over the past months. However, my guess is that much of Eastern Ukraine (east of the Dnieper) is almost open territory. If the Russians are stretched to the limit, so are the Ukrainians. If the Kiev-regime line were to be breached seriously, or if Russia were able to score a decisive victory in the Bakhmut/Artyomovsk pocket, there might be little to prevent most of Eastern Ukraine falling to Russian forces.
“Starmer then said; “If I am privileged enough to get into government at the next election I will work with CST and others to tackle it (hate) head on, with all of you.”
The dinner, which took place at a central London hotel was also attended by Ed Balls and wife Yvette Cooper, Dayan Gelley, Lord John Mann and JLC chair Keith Black.”
Starmer— a complete puppet of the Jewish lobby. Yvette Cooper no different.
Of course, when the puppet talks of “hate“, he means any criticism of Jews and their behaviour.
Where has Farage been for the past ~60 years?
We must have that weapon, and before China has it.
Energy security— yes, OK, but (in the meantime) Russia would offer the UK cost-price fuel (gas especially) if the UK were to trade unrestrictedly with Russia and, also, stop funnelling arms, ammunition and money to the regime of the Jew dictator, Zelensky, in Kiev.
There are still quite a few scared sheep around, though:
As for the barristers noted particularly in that report— one Jew, one half-Jew. As many now realize, (almost) “every single time“…
On the other hand, a wise man once observed that one should not throw away one’s crutches until one is sure that one can stand unaided.
Perceptive, from someone as young as that.
On the other hand, do not forget that there is also good in this world, and that, in the Russian proverb, “the world is not without kind people“.
Ha ha! “I’m lovin’ it!“
The whole thing, the “trans nonsense”, has mushroomed from being a situation, or problem, affecting a tiny handful of people, to now being an absurd fad supposedly affecting millions and, also, a way in which the transnational conspiracy can close down free speech in a specific area and generally.
It has become a building block of the “New World Order” [NWO], as can be seen by the way in which trans nonsense propaganda has been used against, inter alia, Russia and Putin.
As for Eddie Izzard, another very negative factor in British society.
All very good, but most people in the UK have nowhere in which to grow their own food, not even a small garden. A half-acre garden is a relative rarity. Still, a worthwhile enquiry.
That “Boris” Johnson could become an MP was ridiculous, that he could become a Cabinet minister was almost unbelievable, and that he could become Prime Minister was a disgrace. The whole present Parliamentary system is a bad joke.
As for Nadine Dorries, what can one say? A stupid “ho” with a brain the size of a pea, but not so stupid that she could not tear the **** out of her Parliamentary expenses; she even gave her daughters non-jobs using her expenses: £60,000 a year for one of them alone.
The more I look at the way the “West” is going, that is in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, UK etc, the more it seems to me that, somewhere not far down the line, a kind of civil war, a kind of culture war, a kind of race war, a kind of (new-style) class war, all mixed together, is almost inevitable.
The same phenomenon is seen in the UK. Report something to the police (I mean a real but “minor” crime, not a murder or a rude word said about a Jew) and nothing happens. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Black hole.
Look at the sentences given out for most things. Very lenient in most cases of “real” crime.
Something in the background is working to destroy normal society. Sinister.
Absolutely stupid. For one thing, many of the worst trolls use pseudonyms either exclusively or alongside their “real” social media accounts.
The poll does show how most of the “sheeple” want to be subjects of a (however fake) “caring/sharing” police state, at heart. I suppose that that came out during the “panicdemic”.
If the present Government were both willing and able to stop not only the cross-Channel migration-invasion but also general and continuing mass immigration, that would be a game-changer. However, since all System parties are supportive of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, that is very unlikely to happen.
Having said that, if the cross-Channel invasion on its own could be halted, so that there were no longer picture and clips of film showing invaders disembarking from boats, that might be enough to convince many voters to vote Con rather than Lab. Maybe.
If that were to happen, Poland must be suspended from NATO before a third major European (and perhaps world) war is triggered. Poland was the trigger for WW2. Most people do not want WW3. If the Polish leadership wants their country to become a devastated and, this time, also irradiated wasteland, that is their problem, but do not expect us, of Western and Central Europe, to back you up (and receive a horde of Russian nuclear missiles on our heads too).
Some people must have been reading my blog! Vive la France!
As of today, 482 utter mugs are still sending “Jack Monroe” a total of several thousand pounds, perhaps many thousands, via Patreon. She laughs at them, spends their donations like a drunken sailor, then pops up here and there pretending that she knows all about “poverty” and survival on little money. A complete fraud.
Thinking strategically, China and Russia together stack up fairly well against the USA. Both strategic nuclear powers, both with large armed forces, both with large populations (in China’s case, huge), both with geographically large state territories, both economically strong in different ways.
Were there to be a nuclear war involving all three (and leaving aside what might be left of this world if that were to happen), I would bet on a recovery in both China and Russia long before any such in the USA. As Hitler said (simplistically but truthfully all the same) the USA is “half-judaized and half-negrified“.
The aftermath of any large-scale devastation in the USA would be social collapse and social/racial war. That happened after Hurricane Katrina, a localized problem. How much more then after a nuclear attack?
“Vladimir Putin‘s ‘martyr complex’ is so out of control there is a risk he will embolden Russia to use nuclear and chemical weapons, a think tank has warned – amid rising concerns over the Kremlin’s ‘hysteric rhetoric’.
A new report published by the US think tank Heritage Foundation has highlighted a growing risk the Russian president will ‘make one of the most fateful decisions of the century’ in the face of his faltering invasion of Ukraine.
The study, named The US and Its Allies Must Understand and Respond to Russia’s Nuclear Threats, explores the actual likelihood that Putin will turn to using weapons of mass destruction.
Russian generals are understood to have discussed the use of tactical nuclear weapons in November, but is said to be cautious about the use of long-range weapons.
However, Russia has ‘increasingly portrayed the West as an enemy and appears to now accept tactical strategic nuclear weapons as an option for deterring further escalation of combat.
The country is understood to have between 1,000 and 2,000 nuclear weapons of varying sizes.
The use of such weapons is seen by Western nations as a last resort, but the report states Russia may turn to tactical nuclear weapons ‘early in the exercise or at mid-point’.
The report outlines four situations in which Putin would turn to nuclear weapons; pre-empting an attack on Russia; use against Russia; a threat, such as a cyberattack on Russia’s command-and-control systems; and an existential threat to Russia from conventional or nuclear weapons.
It says: ‘Russia has failed to defeat the Ukrainian military and is now focusing on forcing the capitulation of the civilian population by attacking electricity and water supplies.
‘It is therefore plausible that Russia will not only threaten to use, but actually use, a weapon of mass destruction to target civilian resistance in Ukraine.
‘Russia is focusing on destroying Ukraine’s power infrastructure, and with the nuclear industry now producing around 60 percent of pre-war power, a Russian attack on nuclear power stations to cut off electricity and create an improvised nuclear incident is a real prospect.’
It has also warned that the use of chemical weapons against metro stations in eastern Ukraine would be ‘devastating’.
The report cites the use of chemical weapons in Syria as evidence of Russia’s willingness.
It has also highlighted Russia’s efforts to ‘weaponise refugees’ and create mass flows of people into Western countries to the point they become ‘overwhelmed’.”
The growing escalation by the NWO (NATO etc) is concerning; the flow of advanced weapons to the Kiev regime, together with ammunition, non-military aid, and cash.
If I had to guess, I should put the chance of the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine by the Russian side at about 30%, depending on how the war goes in the next few months. Any chance of Crimea being lost would make their use almost inevitable, but that raises the question of where such weapons might be used— on the battlefield, or against cities? Could Kiev be completely flattened? If so, what would be the NATO (US) response? All-out strategic response? Unlikely but not impossible. Limited but major conventional response? Maybe, but probably not. Nothing much? Possibly.
Russia would not hold back if subjected to serious or sustained Kiev-regime attack on its own unquestioned territory, eg in Central Russia.
As to a full strategic nuclear exchange between NATO and Russia in general, my view would be that that is at present no more than a 5% chance, but that is a very pessimistic assessment. Horses win at 20/1 all the time.
“‘I know I’m being sent to my death’: Ukrainian soldiers admit ‘we are just getting killed’ as they defend Bakhmut…and say Russia can already ‘taste victory’.
Ukrainian soldiers have painted a bleak picture of their on-going defence of Bakhmut, the small eastern city that has become the target of Europe’s bloodiest infantry battle since the Second World War.
Kyiv‘s soldiers have said they knew they were being sent to their deaths when they were given the orders to go to the city, and admitted they are ‘just getting killed’.
The Jews usually degrade, or even destroy, other societies over time. Now it seems that they are quite close to breaking up their own, Israeli, society, only 75 years after its foundation.
Would that, and the whole situation around that, have been seen or even conceivable in the 1980s, 1990s, even a decade ago? I think not. The West is not, mainly, being pressured by outside forces, but is falling apart internally. Maybe that is often the way of things, thinking of the Roman Empire, the gradual collapse of Sovietism etc.
Like a scene from Stalingrad in 1942/1943. War is hell.
It has been clear from the start, over a year ago, that the Americans have been feeding a large amount of direct battlefield intelligence from satellites etc to the forces of the Kiev regime. Had that not been so, the Russian forces would have had greater success in the field.
This comes close to the USA being a direct participant in the war. Madness.
The finance-capitalist system is inherently unstable, and linked in such a way that (as with an uncontrolled reaction in a nuclear power station) panic a fear creates an unstoppable or almost unstoppable momentum.
Imagine though, if a banking sector collapse internationally co-incided with a European war beyond the Ukraine borders. That could be the trigger for a social-national and pan-European upsurge across the continent, enabling the extermination of evil powers and person, and also the foundation of a new and better society in the long term.
More thoughts around Russia and Ukraine
The missing factor on the Russian side, domestically, is real determination on the part of the ordinary population. That would change if any one of two things were to happen: a direct conventional-arms attack (by Ukraine or its Western quasi-allies and backers) on any major Russian city, or a large incursion onto unambiguously Russian territory by forces of the Kiev regime (or foreign forces).
Either of those two events would probably trigger a large scale and probably (tactical-) nuclear response by the Russian leadership.
Russia values Kiev as one of the birthplaces of the Russian state [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27], and I think that the leadership will try to capture the city intact, if possible, but if the Russian leadership felt that the Russian state itself were in existential peril, their response might be to destroy Kiev rather than face extinction as a state, as a people (a collection of peoples, but Russified and Russophone), and as a distinct European/Eurasian culture.
Ha ha! I can vaguely remember David Icke reading out the football results on — was it Southern TV? Wikipedia says BBC, so maybe BBC South— sometime around 1980 or so. Not that I would have been interested anyway.
I did not hear of David Icke again until 1990 or 1991 (looking at his Wikipedia entry, maybe the latter year), when I returned one time from the USA, and a friend mentioned as an example of something or other “David Icke“, and I replied “who?” (I had forgotten the name of the young man reading out the sports news a decade before). My friend laughed and said “you must be the only person in England who has not heard of David Icke!“. At that time, he was completely unknown in America.
A few years later, September 1994, I was invited as a birthday surprise by another friend to what turned out to be David Icke speaking at the Wigmore Hall in Marylebone, London, only a short taxi ride from where I then lived in Little Venice.
A quite good and very impassioned speaker, and dressed —if I recall aright— in his famous purple tracksuit, Icke was introduced by a remarkably attractive woman (about 35-40) who said that he was something like “the greatest thinker of our time“. I found that his speech did not quite live up to that billing, but was all the same interesting. My friend also bought me, as a birthday present, a signed copy of The Robot’s Rebellion from the stall in the foyer.
Icke used to follow my Twitter account (and I think that he was only following about 100-200 other people and organizations, so he must be rather perceptive!…). That ended when a pack of Jews had me expelled from Twitter in 2018. Icke himself was (as I had predicted would happen) expelled from Twitter later (by the same or similar Jews), but is now back: https://twitter.com/davidicke.
I would not endorse everything that Icke says or has said, but much of what he says is correct, and has been proven to be, e.g. the following:
“Why do we play a part in suppressing alternative information to the official line of the Second World War? How is it right that while this fierce suppression goes on, free copies of the Spielberg film, Schindler’s List, are given to schools to indoctrinate children with the unchallenged version of events. And why do we, who say we oppose tyranny and demand freedom of speech, allow people to go to prison and be vilified, and magazines to be closed down on the spot, for suggesting another version of history.
Of course the “usual” (((usual))) influence has contaminated Wikipedia, so its “facts” in respect of anything such as Jews, the “holocaust” farrago, and the Second World War, Hitler etc, are often not true facts at all.
The apparently intermittent dementia of the US President at such a time is more than concerning. Stupidity played a large part in the unwanted (by most people) start of the two really major wars of the 20thC; will actual dementia play a part in the start of the next such war?
Ironic. The same sort of people who are forever tweeting (or spouting on (((TV))) and in the (((Press))) about how Britain fought off German invasion in the early 1940s —and leaving the argument about that aside— are usually “refugees welcome” dimwits who want the UK to be a dustbin for the whole world. At present, they are certainly succeeding. I wonder whether they will like the eventual results (to them personally, as well) of their virtue-signalling “activism”?
I have seen tweets from the usual self-describing “Left” suspects saying that even a critical interview like that should not be allowed on TV, because Patriotic Alternative (etc) are “fascists“. It just confirms the total irrelevance of Corbyn-style pseudo-socialists in the post-1989, post-socialist political space.
The British people, especially the poorer ones, are just ignored by the System, and nowhere is that more obvious than when it comes to mass immigration and migration-invasion.
…preferably with a good kicking as a not-golden farewell!
Join with Russia if the EU turns even more against Russia.
Join in amity with Russia, cut ties with the EU completely if necessary, leave NATO, chuck out US spy bases and air bases.
The EU is not, on the whole, a Europe worth saving anyway. With Russia on one side and the UK on the other, the EU states will have to come to heel eventually, and give us what we want and need.
Pensions cap removal etc
If the aim is mainly to stop doctors taking early retirement, then why not restrict the recently-announced policy to doctors?
In fact, Plymouth has a minority Conservative Party-ruled council. 25 Labour, 23 Conservative, 9 others.
The tree vandalism is appalling. I know Armada Way, which is a long and mainly traffic-free avenue connecting the central part of Plymouth to the famous Plymouth Hoe where Drake played bowls before defeating the Spanish Armada in the late 16thC.
The bit of Armada Way where I often was has thankfully been spared the axe, and is closer to the centre of the city. I often appeared at the County Court there (the building also contains the rather busy Plymouth Crown Court).
Plymouth could be a fantastic city, with its water frontage, and its rural hinterland, but somehow isn’t. It has problems of crime, drugs, drunkenness etc, and the local council is completely incompetent. I used to park at the very top of a multistorey car park quite near the court building. The Plymouth Council owned that car park. In about 6 years of parking there (about once every couple of weeks), the lift worked once, I think. Once out of 100-200 times. A small example but, I think, telling.
Plymouth Council is riddled with both freemasonry and Common Purpose, so often the nests of the mediocre. As with other councils with those characteristics, such as Birmingham, Plymouth Council is both incompetent and corrupt.
Incidentally, if anyone wonders why I always parked on the open top floor of that car park (about 10 storeys high) despite knowing that the lift would almost certainly be inoperative, well, there are a number of reasons. I like being able to park where there is always a spot, in a space almost always free of any other cars, not having to bother with other cars’ owners, people parking or leaving etc. In fact, about the only time I ever saw another car up there, it turned out to be that of a rather attractive lady barrister I knew slightly from court, Rebecca something-or-other. Secondly, I enjoyed the view. Thirdly, it is my long-held habit— I always park at the top of multi-storey car parks.
Disgraceful. Government, central and local, must step in, but it abdicated its responsibilities years ago. Buy to let and other similar forms of exploitation have to be stopped.
Sweden should have the sense to stay neutral. Such support comes close to abandoning neutrality.
As for Poland and its leadership, I can only think of Hegel, who wrote that “the lesson of history is that people do not learn the lessons of history” (may not be exact quotation, but near enough).
So the “Conservative” Party panel of Uxbridge and South Ruislip have reselected a part-Jew who was born in New York City, brought up in the USA and Belgium mainly (except when at Eton and Oxford), who did time (a few weeks) on a kibbutz in Israel, who describes himself as “Zionist“, and who has a long history of disgraceful and dishonest conduct in his personal life, as a journalist of sorts, as MP, as Cabinet minister, and finally as Prime Minister?
What am I missing? Not that he is some kind of great brain, as once was thought by easily-fooled people. As for real intellect and culture, forget it.
Still, at least it looks as if his time as MP is very limited, if the opinion polls can be believed:
Unfortunately, instead of being put up against a wall and shot, the bastard is going to make millions out of memoirs, speeches, after-dinner ramblings etc.
Interesting to see. One of the worst aspects (culturally) of the Ukraine conflict is the ghastly music (I do not know what it is called), a kind of (?) Slavonic “rap”, and played constantly by both sides. At least the “turbofolk” played during the Yugoslav/Balkan war(s) was not completely offensive to the ear.
Well, not quite as bad, anyway…
The Russian equivalent of turbofolk (I think it can be called…apologies to any musical experts reading), which I well remember from when I was in Kazakhstan (1996-1997):
More late tweets seen
The Guardian that became a cheerleader for the 2020-2021 police-state “Covid” measures: “lockdowns”, facemask nonsense, and Boris-idiot’s own contribution, the ridiculous “Rule of Six”.
Well-meaning silliness. Mikolaiv, or Nikolayev, will probably fall back under Russian control before very long; after that, I expect that Russian authorities will rebuild the city.
Incidentally, the Danish Ambassador and his government might be better advised to use their time, money, and power to prevent Denmark being further swamped by non-European savages.
I am willing to accept that the Ambassador’s own motives are probably reasonably good or charitable, but this is wrongheaded. Better to stop funnelling arms to the corrupt and vicious Jewish regime in Kiev, which merely prolongs a war Russia cannot lose.
The David Morgan account is one of the best on Twitter at present.
I blogged a couple of months ago about my two younger brothers, one in the UK and one in Australia, both of whom have been sportsmen all their lives, and neither of which had ever had cardiac problems until they were “vaccinated” with the “Covid” “vaccines”, as well as each having “boosters”.
Last year, both were taken to hospital as emergency heart cases. Both had to have by-pass operations (one a triple by-pass). Though both are now recovered, for me those incidents are at least anecdotal proof of the dangers of these botched “vaccines”. I am glad that I resisted the several attempts made to offer me the bloody stuff.
As regular readers of the blog will know, I myself never use the lazy and almost useless “Left/Right” descriptors.
Time to post again the following, American-oriented but also useful for the UK, and basically correct, poster:
We all know that, in the end, there is only one way to end this, and to save Europe and thus the future of the whole world, but if anyone were to express it straitforwardly, for example on this blog, the System police would visit, and the System prosecution drones would probably prosecute me (or whoever).
God. Just look at that loony…
Still, a couple of rounds would do it…
Apart from which, the pathetic cultural references are usually obscure and not worth knowing about, eg “celebrities” of whom I have literally never heard, and others the names of which I have heard but of whom I know nothing, and want to know nothing.
Aim: a one-world government controlled mainly by (((you know who)));
Method: create a series of manufactured and/or contrived “crises” in order to make people afraid, and also add in to that mix a number of false narratives.
The “holocaust” farrago, global warming/climate change, other weather/climate-related scares such as “the ozone layer”, asteroids hitting the Earth, sea-level rising, “Y2K” (remember that one?) “Black Lives Matter” and other “racism” nonsense (though not Jewish supremacism…), “Covid”, “Bird Flu”, and so on.
If some of the foregoing have a small element of truth contained within the “bodyguard of lies“, so much the better for the transnational conspiracy. That helps with credibility, of course.
Thought I would check in on Patreon, to see how many utter mugs are still sending money to fake “poverty expert” and “cook” (if you like horrible dogs’ dinners, or spaghetti sandwiches), “Jack Monroe”.
Turns out that (since a day or two ago) a few more mugs have seen the light and so stopped paying her between £3.50 and £44 a month for nothing but a virtue-signal that no-one even sees. Still, 479 mugs paying out does add up to between £1,677 and £21,076 each month.
What the real amount she gets (from that Patreon source alone) is a matter for speculation, but quite likely several thousand pounds a month. Taxfree (probably). In the Essex argot, one could call it “a nice little earner” for doing absolutely nothing.
Well, that must be right. Let us say, for the purposes of argument and suspending disbelief, that the Kiev-regime forces win everything they say they want, and thus push Russian forces out of the regions of Lugansk, Donetsk, and Crimea, leaving the Russian civilians who live there to flee, be killed, or be subjected to ethnic Ukrainian martial law (unable even to speak Russian in public). What then?
Do the politicians and military top brass of NATO states think that Russia would let that happen, or let that happen without revenge and retaliation?
Were it to happen that Russian forces were pushed back to beyond the pre-2014 borders, Russia would probably respond by flattening Kiev and the major cities of eastern Ukraine, then marching in new armies over the rubble.
The fact remains that, regardless of the military fantasies of the Zelensky regime, or the likes of the BBC and Sky News, Russia cannot lose this conflict in the end. If it prevails on the conventional battlefield, it has not “lost”, though such a victory would be bitter and not exactly a “win”. On the other hand, if the Kiev regime prevails on the battlefield, all that happens is that Russia uses the weapons (including nuclear) which it possesses and which the Kiev regime does not possess and will not possess even in 20 years or even 100 years.
I repeat, Russia cannot “lose” this war, and the Kiev regime cannot “win”.
There is a third possibility, which is that the war drags on, with the Western powers supplying more and advanced weaponry etc, until a bloody stalemate ensues, as in WW1. The West will not give Kiev and Zelensky weapons that are nuclear or can hit Moscow and other long-range targets (Moscow is 300 miles from the Ukraine border, 500 miles from Kiev).
If such a battlefield stalemate were to occur (and we are not very far from that now, really), the West would be waiting for Putin to die and/or be replaced. That assumes that the replacement would be more conciliatory. He might not be.
Still, I think that 2023 might yet see an unexpected Russian advance, with much of eastern Ukraine falling into Russian hands.
There are enough mugs in the UK to keep all those “grifters” (and others, e.g. “non-practising” medic, Julia Grace Patterson) from having to get a job or go on the dole. “Femi’s” £624 a month may not be much, but useless Nigerian talking head “Femi” does also have free accommodation (in his affluent parents’ house), and also gets money by being a loudmouth on Sky etc. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole.
As a matter of fact, I would say that “Femi” is about a 3/1 shot for selection as a Labour MP at some point.
Talking of careerists and grifters…
Political views as expressed usually somewhere between socialist, anarcho-syndicalist, and god-knows-what. However was he selected for a Starmer-Labour candidature? Well, he is part-Jew, and seems to be pro-war when it suits the NWO/ZOG interest, or so it seems to me. I think that, for Mason, socialism, anarcho-syndicalism and post-Marxism carry less weight than careerism.
I have to admit that I mistrust anyone who both has two (or is it three?) homes, yet claims to be a radical, or even a kind of revolutionary.
A tweet very typical of those I have seen this evening about Mason.
“A decade of darkness, below-freezing temperatures and starvation for BILLIONS: The potential horrors of what a nuclear winter would really be like – as scientists call for ‘urgent’ public education.
While it sounds very much like a fictional scenario, an expert describes a nuclear winter as a real and ‘horribly contemporary’ risk due to Russia‘s war on Ukraine.
The research also gauged support in the UK and US for western retaliation in the event of a nuclear blast, which could be the difference between a one-off nuclear attack and an ongoing series of attacks resulting in nuclear winter.
Ingram found there was ‘a strong reluctance’ to support nuclear retaliation in response to [a] fictional Russian nuclear attack on Ukraine.
Out of all 3,000 people in the US and UK, fewer than one in five people – 19.4 per cent – surveyed supported retaliation.
Next, half of the participants in each country were shown infographics of nuclear winter before they read fictional news of nuclear strikes, while the other half were not (the control group).
Unsurprisingly, the stark infographics had the effect of putting people off retaliation.
Support for nuclear retaliation was lower by 16 per cent in the US and 13 per cent in the UK among participants shown the ‘nuclear winter’ infographics than among the control group.
‘Our research showed that when the public is aware of the global risks they are less likely to support nuclear retaliation,’ Ingram told MailOnline.“
…and for what?
So that a fake and failed “state” called Ukraine, that did not even exist as a state at any point before 1991, and which is basically a Jew-ruled kleptocracy and dictatorship, completely shambolic, can continue to fight a war which, if push comes to shove, it cannot win.
This is not our (UK’s, USA’s, France’s, Germany’s) war. Time to stop supplying money and weapons to the Kiev regime.
A whole generation, across Europe and North America, is growing up seeing ads mostly containing ugly fat black women, mixed-race couples and families, “trans” persons, every kind of ****-up etc. Who is behind it all? The (((you-know-who))), as usual.
Ha. Reminds me of when I was a superannuated Bar pupil in 1992, and we had a defendant, a big black man with an odd short haircut. He was a TV licence enforcement “officer”, and was accused at Wood Green Crown Court of blackmail and extortion, and a few other things (he was acquitted on all charges, in the end).
That case stuck with me (I was little more than a spectator) because the Indian Muslim solicitor said, angrily, after an altercation with his client, “why should I take that from a nigger with a horn in his head?” (!) and also because my pupilmaster (barrister notionally supervising me as pupil) had to make formal complaint to the judge that the alleged victim in the case had hired a number of black magic African women to intimidate the defendant (they were huge and evil-looking, and hung around the public waiting area, staring fixedly at the defendant when he was there; after the complaint, they were told by the court staff to get lost, in effect).
Those one-trick ponies, the Harry Formerly Known as Prince, and his consort, Meghan Mulatta, have all but used up their ammunition. Like defectors from the old Soviet Union, they gave what were supposedly sensational titbits at first, but then descended to less interesting material (in their case into more petty whining). To employ another metaphor, the first cold pressing of the olive produces the best oil; after that, the product is of lower quality, and watered-down.
Ha ha! That put the useless Nigerian online “grifter” in his place. I might not think much of Lee Anderson or his views, but his enemies are even less to my taste.
“Femi” is just another symptom of how sick British society now is. I wonder how long it will be before he tries to become a Labour MP? In fact, I wonder how long it will be before the Commons becomes majority non-white. Then it will be time for a second Guy Fawkes to make his appearance.
I had quite forgotten that one-time rock “music” groupie, pitifully poor MP-for-5-minutes, and hard-core drug abuser, Louise Mensch, even existed, but there she still sits on Twitter, with her 269,000 “followers”, still trumpeting the same kind of Jewish/Israel/NWO propaganda as she has for a decade or more. She herself admitted that her hard drug abuse “messed with her brain“. Her exact words were “My mind is messed up after taking hard drugs.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Mensch.
Follower numbers on Twitter mean little, of course. Louise Mensch may have 269,000 Twitter “followers” (on paper), but that tweet I featured above, for example, tweeted more than a day ago, has only been seen by 304 people (as at present time of writing), only been “liked” by 14 people, and only been retweeted by 1 person. Not one hundred thousand, not one thousand, but just one individual.
Actually, looking even at the most-seen tweets of Louise Mensch, which have been seen by several thousand people (because she tends to tag in well-known or famous people such as Elon Musk, Biden etc), the number of “likes” and retweets is small, often a mere handful.
Even her Jew husband got rid of her in the end. I have no idea how much it cost him in alimony but whatever it was, I have no doubt that it was cheap at the price.
Something I had not seen before today. Rather underwhelming. Above all, the activities of our intelligence, counter-intelligence, and security people rather miss the main point— the principal dangers to the UK come not from North Korean missiles, Chinese or Russian spies etc, but from internal decadence and events. Mass immigration. Births to non-whites with UK residency and/or nationality. The infiltration into politics, law, the msm and, indeed, security and intelligence agencies by Jews and/or Israeli agents. The decadence promoted by TV and other msm, particularly the BBC. The general decadence of British society.
Indeed, it could well be said that the UK is now little more than a colony of the USA anyway— the one-sided extradition treaty, the American bases on UK soil (often nominally “RAF bases”), the huge influence of American-funded (and often staffed) “think-tanks” such as the IEA, the de facto US control or power of veto of the UK “independent” nuclear deterrent, and so on.
Well, I have rarely been accused of being a “libertarian”, but I agree wholeheartedly with all of those demands!
As blogged previously, I do not necessarily oppose “Independence” for Scotland, but it seems that many Scots are adamantly opposed, and that either there is no majority for it or only a very small majority.
I suspect that many Scots think “what Independence?” when Scotland would probably still be in NATO (i.e. under de facto American/NWO control), still in the EU (i.e.under EU control), still subject to the diktats of international finance-capitalism, and overall almost certainly poorer per capita.
Still, if a significant majority of the Scots were to clamour for “Independence”, I would say “so go…“, but it really would have to be 60% at a bare minimum; in reality, to make it work, 75% or more.
Speaking personally, for me the SNP is fake “nationalism”, having little to do with race and culture.
I do not think that the SNP will fall back to where it was before 2015. It has an electoral niche, which is a kind of social-democracy in policy terms, but underpinned by the faux-“nationalism” which sets it apart, superficially, from the other System parties “up there” (I am on the southern coast of England). The SNP of course is a System party. You only have to look at the lip-service it pays to the Jewish lobby/Israel lobby.
The SNP has also been even more repressive in terms of free speech than the Westminster regimes of recent years; Police Scotland has embraced its Poundland Stasi role with unseemly alacrity.
I imagine that many Scots, perhaps a majority, will prefer to stick with the UK rather than become poorer outside it. Whisky, tourism, and financial services cannot provide income enough to support an “independent” Scottish state, and North Sea oil/gas, even if partly under control of Edinburgh, is (arguably) a declining or depreciating asset, especially if supposedly “green” policies are pursued.
In terms of Westminster governments, though, the 59 Scottish seats are important. Without them, the UK Labour Party will find it difficult to form a government (even with SNP support), unless the presently-forecast huge landslide actually happens; such a landslide may happen this year or next but, if so, will not be repeated.
The trigger for the resignation may have been the SNP’s crazed promotion of the trans nonsense, but Sturgeon was “too big for her boots” in other ways as well, pretending that she was (sort-of) a world statesman and leader of a (sort-of) state.
Nicola Sturgeon has often been compared (approvingly or not) to the New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who resigned not long ago. A lazy comparison though, arguably; after all, New Zealand is over 103,000 square miles in area, has over 5,000,000 people, and is a recognized state.
Scotland, though also having over 5,000,000 people, is only 30,000 square miles in area and, though a distinct country historically and to some extent culturally, is not a state, and has not been since 1707.
There is, though, no reason why Scotland cannot be a state again, so long as its people are willing to pay the price in various ways. It is clear, surely, that about half are not.
The most egregious lie of “Jack Monroe” must be that, when Grenfell Tower was still burning, she went there (why? 60 miles from Southend where she lives), was “waved through the police cordon” (how? why?), and pretty much took charge (why? She did at one time, long before, have a job atthe Essex fire brigade, but only answering the telephone). She also claims to have had the building plans of Grenfell Tower (how? why?).
Incidentally, while (as of today) 502 utter mugs are still each sending “Jack Monroe” between £3.50 and £44 each month via Patreon, her recent book has bombed. According to Amazon, it is selling about 268 copies per month at present, and secondhand hardback copies are up for sale for as little as £7, only a month after publication.
“An Israeli firm sought to influence more than 30 elections around the world for clients by hacking, sabotage and spreading disinformation, according to an undercover media investigation published Wednesday.
Following the latest revelations, Israel might also face increased pressure to rein in its cutting-edge cyberware and technology sector which was spotlighted in another media investigation led by Forbidden Stories in 2021.
“A poll suggests that almost a quarter of a million young people who are currently not working never plan to get a job and two-thirds are complaining it is too difficult to get a good job, a survey has revealed.
The poll of 5000 18 to 24-year-olds found that a staggering 227,000 youngsters currently out of a job or not studying claim they never intend to enter the labour market.
The startling report found nearly half of those who are working (42 per cent) are receiving financial support from their family, with that number rising to 50 per cent in London.”
Give people a positive reason to be employed, and you will get applicants. No-one wants to work at jobs that do not even cover the cost of basic food and shelter.
Russian forces making smallish gains on a basically static front. Nothing on the large scale will change until one side or the other can mount either a large offensive, or pull some tactical or strategic rabbit out of the hat.
Appalling. Animals are living breathing creatures who share the Earth with us. I hate all callous exploitation of them.
“Boris”-idiot has suggested, I read, that all RAF fighters (and bombers?) be lent or given to the Kiev regime. Was that a hoax report? Maybe. If that were to happen, then the remaining RAF bases (once the occupying USAF forces were chucked out) could go the way of most former RAF airfields, and be turned into tract housing.
I can think of a number of UK air bases that have been turned into housing developments in the past few decades. The same is true of Army bases, such as the one-time Intelligence Corps base at Ashford, Kent, where I recall spending a day in 1975: see https://www.28dayslater.co.uk/threads/templer-barracks-intelligence-corps-depot-ashford-kent-visit-2002-part-1.90734/. The photos in the linked site show how, even a couple of decades ago, housing was encroaching closely upon what was then left of the former Templer Barracks. Templer Barracks had its own guards and entrances, and was a base within a base, surrounded by barracks of the “ordinary” Army. Housing development covered that outer zone first, it seems.
I presume that the areas of Templer Barracks shown are now also tract housing.
…only to be countered, vituperatively, on social media, by the half-Jew and half-Chinese wife of another former member of the same band.
If the UK were to stop its support for the Jewish regime of Zelensky in Kiev and —even more— were the UK to pull back support for what NATO has become (NWO/ZOG), Russia would then supply gas to the UK, to us, at cost price. No-one in the UK would then need to freeze or starve because of “Ukraine” (the Zelensky regime).
In any case, “her lawyer” (if any) has not sent a letter (whether “strong“, not so strong, or apocalyptic and written in Hebrew on stone tablets) to Con Party MP Lee Anderson.
Another day, another “Jack Monroe” lie…
“Jack Monroe” is, or has become, a fraudster, basically (and far worse than I thought when I assessed her on the blog at the end of September 2022). Having said that, the non-practising doctor tweeting in support of her, Julia Grace Patterson, is not much better.
The 631 utter mugs still sending her between £3.50 and £44 a month via Patreon will no doubt continue to collude in their own mugging, though…
Other tweets seen
The flow of migration-invasion would be curbed if either a. the boats were destroyed in the Channel, along with the invaders; or b. the invaders simply disappeared after reaching the UK, never to be heard of again. Either of those measures would deter others from trying to invade.
A general feeling of “end of an era”, as in 1939 and 1914…
Can you imagine what the remains of our culture and civilization would look like (and will, unless we take charge soon) if only blacks and mixed-race half-castes were to exist? Think Mogadishu, Haiti, most of Africa, but on a larger urban scale. Just the remains of civilization and greatness, half-reduced to rubble, and the untermenschen crawling over the ruins.
That “Dr Freya Vass” (a teacher of dance, apparently) sounds like a complete loony, like most of the “Jack Monroe” partisans.
The whole long thread about Serebriakova is rather interesting. A feeling of Doctor Zhivago about it.
The tweet went the same way as that “Bootstrap Cook” blog post which claimed that she had been “waved through” the police cordon at Grenfell Tower in West London, and (armed with the “building plans“, no less!) more or less took over the rescue etc.
Remarkable for someone who was not, at the time employed by any fire service, or any other emergency service, and who lived about 60 miles from the fire— in Essex, where (for a year or so) she had answered the telephone at a call centre for the Essex fire brigade.
How could she have had the “building plans” for Grenfell Tower? Simply impossible.
That blog post was a remarkable exercise both in fantasy writing, and in trying to create an entirely false story. Some of her fans actually believed it, incredibly.
It emphasizes the psychological (narcissistic) need “Jack Monroe” has for placing herself centre stage. The big story of the time was the Grenfell Tower fire, but that happened 60 miles from Southend, and there was no nexus at all between it and “Jack Monroe”, so she simply invented a scenario in which she was right at the centre of events— striding purposefully through the police cordon to take charge of the emergency. Ludicrous, but some people believed it.
I agree. While one does not expect the editor of The Grocer, Best magazine, or even the Metro, to be particularly aware or intelligent, what can be the excuse of the editors of the Guardian and the Observer?
As blogged before, though, I would be surprised if the msm kept on, for very much longer, promoting the nonsense of the “Bootstrap Cook”, despite her numerous “personal connections” etc.
Only now just realized that one smug and unpleasant individual, who used to post rather nasty tweets about me years ago, around 2013 and 2014, died a few years ago. Not quite sure how many that makes.
Ha ha! Now that really is funny. I think that, out of all the absurd tales made up by (mostly) Jews about the Second World War and the so-called “holocaust” farrago, that is pretty much the best yet.
Your friendly local medical centre is becoming just another “grift”, taking large amounts of money but providing little support.
It’s quite funny, in a bitter way— decades, even centuries, of Irish nationalism have come to exactly nothing, and now even the pathetic Sinn Fein/IRA rump has caved in. Ireland is ruled by globalist puppets (including a half-Indian gay doctor as “Taoiseach”), and is being flooded by blacks and browns.
Should have gone to Specsavers…
Like most System politicians, that one deserves a good kicking.
Very few of that 1M+ believe “Jack Monroe”, or give her any credence.
As a former quasi-celebrity who has had her “15 minutes of fame”, she is pretty much dead in the water, but so long as 631 utter mugs keep sending her money each and every month (between £3.50 and £44 each), she will probably not be too worried that most people have woken up to her nonsense.
“You mean the Indian money-juggler posing as Prime Minister?“
I have blogged more than once about this. The “Bootstrap Cook” has not launched legal action, and will not. The money she “grifted” from mugs wanting to help her sue Con Party MP, Lee Anderson (and also “alt-lite” commentator Martin Daubney) has been kept by her and my belief (unless I see convincing evidence otherwise) is that she has stolen it.
I also believe that the police should be taking an interest in “Jack Monroe” and her whole range of activities.
Less subtle thieves than “Jack Monroe”
Look at the Tesco employee in that clip! He would not notice if a tank crashed through the wall. What a deadhead!
I wonder how long it has been since the thieves landed on the Sussex beaches in their rubber boat?
Any comment from the “refugees welcome” dimwits?
The MPs are just puppets of an international conspiracy; same with the msm. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan…
The System punishes anyone prominent who questions the “vaccine(s)” (or the so-called “holocaust” farrago)…
Good grief! I actually agree with unpleasant Jew, Giles Coren, today.
Little Matt Hancock will be looking for a lucrative sinecure after he leaves the Commons. The Jew-Zionist lobby sorted similar positions out for, inter alia, Ruth Smeeth, Mary Creagh, Tom Watson, Michael Dugher etc, after they left politics. Hancock is “showing willing”, in other words.
