The Coffee House Wall Write ruthlessly what you believe to be the truth, or else shut up!


The Coffee House Wall – February 2021

This is the Coffee House Wall for this month. I won't say that it is your chance to communicate with us, as we are all in this together. It is, nevertheless, the Conservative Blog post that has no particular theme, and where everything is on topic. Let's just remember that we want to avoid ad hominem attacks on others. We don't want to engage with trolls. We want to moderate our language ourselves as responsible and mature adults, choosing to use fruity language only where it is necessary. This is our opportunity to show what the Spectator Coffee House Wall could have been like.

  1. BEVERLEY TURNER: Why I refused to clap for Captain Tom

  2. One has to avoid conflating the man’s action with the hullabaloo created by the hedgers-on, John, he started the walk not knowing that it will get hijacked by the agitprop brigade, it’s the same for the NHS, one cannot but admire and be thankful for what the front line employees of the monstrosity are doing, they risk their lives to save the lives of others, but this in no way proves the organisation is fit for purpose, just the opposite to the deed of Captain Tom.

    Captain Tom was in Barons view one of the surviving members of the ‘healthy core of Britishness’, a true gentleman, selfless, and genuine, someone who did his best for the community without expecting anything in return, it’s more than likely he wouldn’t have mentioned his dream of a foreign holiday if he knew he’ll be taken there, Baron reckons, it did go against the spirit of his idea to help those that helped him without asking anything in return.

    He would have hated seeing people clapping for him, would have thought it was a virtue signalling of the worst kind, would have preferred those clapping doing something tangible and helpful for those in need in their communities.

    Great man, RIP Captain Tom.

  3. Apologies: It’s ‘hangers-on’, bloody software to blame, definitely.

  4. Totally agree Baron, that’s basically what the article said, she also raised various issues about which you are only supposed to hold the authorised view.

  5. A Salute To Captain Tom
    You’re never too old to learn something new,
    You’re never too old to explore,
    You’re never too old to have hopes and dreams,
    You’re never too old to want more,
    You’re never too old for a challenge,
    You’re never too old to complete it,
    You’re never too old to achieve your goal,
    And then, remarkably, beat it,
    You’re never too old to make a difference,
    You’re never too old to aim higher,
    You’re never too old to change the world,
    You’re never too old to inspire,
    You’re never too old to share your thoughts,
    You’re never too old to give,
    But mostly, people must realise …
    You’re never too old to live…..

  6. John birch @ February 5th, 2021 – 09:21

    One issue that Baron’s been searching for, John, was whether Captain Tom got vaccinated, apparently he did, the Daily Mail quoted Janet Street-Porter saying (amongst other things) ‘I couldn’t be more thrilled that The Queen, Prince Philip, Captain Tom and Joan Bakewell have all had their jabs … then, few days later after Captain Tom died, the paper dropped his name from the quote, no explanation given.

    One can ignore the lack of explanation, say that it’s typical of journalists today to substantially amend a piece without explain the reason behind it. The more serious point is that both the Monarch and Prince Philip got the jabs also, one can only hope and pray neither one will follow the fate of Captain Tom.

  7. Fergus Pickering @ February 5th, 2021 – 21:07

    Good one, Fergus, have it published quick whilst Captain Tom’s still topical.

    How about in brackets after ‘Until …” (you get the jab, expire stiff)? Only joking.

  8. Piers Corbyn gets arrested for publishing a cartoon in Britain, there’s not a word of condemnation by any other world Government, Navalny’s conditional sentence gets converted into a real one because he kept breaking the conditions of it, and the court building in Moscow is swarming with Ambassadorial staff as if the future of the world, possibly the Universe, depended on it. Weird that.

  9. Navalny. Has he sorted that cockroach problem in the Caucasus yet?

  10. Baron1 – 00:23

    Craig Murray? Isn’t he the Scotchman journalist who the Sturgeon cabal put into court for the heinous crime of… er, you know, doing real journalism? (on the Alex Salmond affair)

    Hopefully all this will unravel by the end of the month.
    Get some beer, and crisps or popcorn in…

  11. ##GOOD NEWS## for the CHW literary buffs!

    As befits the leader of any one party totalitarian state “Oooor Nicola” is publishing a collection of her speeches in May. Scotlands grateful masses will treasure them forever, and demonstrate their loyalty by giving the tome a prominent place on their bookshelf underneath her portrait,

    And the title of her literary triumph? Well, she stole that from Mao Tse Tung (Zedong)
    You’d have to have a heart of stone not to laugh…

    Order your copy now to avoid disappointment. If you’re a free thinking resident of Jockistan then ownership of a copy is a “must” in order to avoid suspicion of your family friends and neighbours, followed by almost certain arrest!

  12. Baron,

    Chelyabinsk: Would you live there? Probably not in my case, as it’s currently -14C and drifting snow!

    A tour in which you’ll discover many things and why it is block paved from end to end…

    Both Bald & local guide Roman have interesting channels – in English.

    From Bald’s travels in the former USSR’s “flyover country” there seems to be a lot of nostalgia amongst the impoverished and older people for “zee good old days” under the previous management. Our fugitive émigré friend would be horrified!
    When Bald visited Gorbachev’s home town he couldn’t find anybody to say a good word about him. :-). This, of course, is a natural human response and failure of memory that is nicely described in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels… regarding the governance of Ankh Morpork, its major city.

    Interesting to see the places, with their people, that I’ve only ever seen on a map on the screen on the seen in front of me at 38,000 on the way to/from the antipodes.

    Flying, remember that eh?

  13. @12:24

    “on the seat in front of me”

    e&oe etc.

  14. The overall effect of the world’s reaction to Covid 19 will be a compensatiing increase in the third world’s already ample birthrates and a further and potentially calamatous collapse in the Western worlds births, as our young people, impoverished and deprived of the normal opportunities to meet and mix, loose a year or more of prime reproductive opportunity.
    The end result is simply an increase in the accelerating African and South Asian replacement of the white indigenous people of Britain, and Western Europe.

  15. Wither the monarchy when the Royal Cabbage presents himself, before or after the Great Reset.
    “.. For thee but not for me”.

  16. According to Sonia Elijah at TCW.

    2.25million have died worldwide from Covid to date while 270,000,000 people face starvation as a result of the global impact of lockdowns and restrictions…. it is hard not to see lockdown as far more destructive to the world’s poor than the disease itself.

  17. Noa – 21:10

    Thanks for reminding us of the dreadful prospect!
    King Charles III and Queen Camilla.
    You know how to cheers us all up, eh!

  18. Meanwhile…

    China’s exploding non Navalny/LGBT related personhole problem:

  19. Margaret Thatcher in 1992 pointing out the flaws in the EUSSR project that would lead to its ultimate unravelling. Uncannily accurate predictions!

  20. Marshall Roberts
    “… 2.25million have died worldwide from Covid to date while 270,000,000 people face starvation as a result of the global impact of lockdowns and restrictions…. it is hard not to see lockdown as far more destructive to the world’s poor than the disease itself… ”

    So it’s not all bad news then.
    Still, I foresee a black hand piteously outstretched in the now familiar gesture towards the greedy, expoitative colonialist West, whose fault it all is.

  21. EC
    The EU, Greater Germany’s 5th Reich and its 6th too will take an extraordinarily long time to die and it will probably be a bloody one too, dragging our own mini-Reichs kommissariat unto some reenactment of the Battle of France in the Baltic or Black Sea regions.

  22. It’s Ilford, innit? Always Essex where the accidents happen …
    Oh my Gawd I’m paralysed!
    Can you feel anything yet Darlin’?
    How many fingers are you holding up? Only 5?? No wonder I’m feelin noffink!

  23. EC
    Camilla? Yes I’d forgotten about her. Still, as the Woyals as wont to do she set and institutionslised a trend of moving your former and current mistresses into your council housing.
    The Blond Inseminator shows that, having moved downwards the habit has moved back into the fashionable mainstream again.
    But your comment also put me in mind of another Camilla, who though she proved somewhat of a liability to the taxpayers, would glamorously decorate even Windsor dowdy peacock throne.

  24. That wuz de week dat wuz.
    Down under

  25. The hijacking

    This Captain Tom thing.
    He’d had his three score years and ten
    And then nearly half as much again.
    That’s clapped out anyway.
    In my book.
    No need to be reminded of it by
    The desperate virtue signaling Inseminator
    For the sole and wicked purpose of
    Defending the indefensible.

  26. Noa – 12:49

    🙂 That sketch was worthy of Beyond Our Ken / Round The Horne.
    Both programs, its presenter and cast all gone but not forgotten. All missed… by me at any rate.

  27. “Look them in the eyes and tell them your doing all you can to prevent the spread of Boris excretea.”
    In the meantime, spend it whilst you can.

  28. Inclusive or wot, unless you’re old, white, male (and dead).
    Here’s the very top of my reading list for the year.

  29. Noa @ February 9th, 2021 – 23:39

    You cannot fail to enjoy the book, Noa, but hurry, the price got reduced only by around two quid, it must sell well.

  30. Noa @ February 9th, 2021 – 20:49

    Hard to blame the guy alone, Noa, he has to get the money from those that have it, no?

    Who’s to blame is the collective of the Blond Inseminator & his team, it’s they that locked us up, close a large chunk of the economy, prevented the big wealth creators such as hairdressers and pubs from operating.

  31. Noa @ February 9th, 2021 – 17:11

    Good one, Noa, but will Fergus like it, that’s the question.

  32. Noa @ February 9th, 2021 – 16:34

    For a communist, Noa, Brendan is amazingly common sense. Should that worry us?

  33. Noa @ February 9th, 2021 – 12:49

    Hard to believe, Noa, but true what one of Baron’s current greats says, and indeed not just in the South.

    How will it end, if end it will?

  34. EC @ February 9th, 2021 – 12:07

    The girl was good, EC, no doubt about it.

    (Baron can say ‘the girl’ because this is how he remembers her).

  35. EC @ February 9th, 2021 – 09:43

    China has exploding manhole covers, we have asbestos cladding, EC, builders everywhere are good at cheating, nothing that new there. If only flying manhole covers were the one problem of the Chinese autocracy, we wouldn’t have to worry much about the country.

  36. EC @ February 7th, 2021 – 12:24

    The Chelyabinsk video was viewed by Baron before, EC, he ran it again, not a place one would choose to live in voluntarily, the guy has another one out about the Baltic state of Estonia, good also.

    Not only that the unwashed of Russia hate Gorby, they also close to venerate Stalin, the Georgian thug that built mostly useless projects on the bodies of the millions. The West finds it shocking because it doesn’t understand Russia.

    And please avoid exciting Baron about air travel, the clowns are now debating whether to introduce passports for overseas travels, arghhh What TF for? Baron will go for one when someone he can trust tells him how many old people died not of c-19 but the vaccine administered to combat the virus. One is told Captain Tom dies few days after getting the jab, rather silly of him to volunteer.

  37. This is longish, runs close to an hour, but instructive:

  38. If you have a problem with the platelets (that’s the stuff in your blood that does the clotting if one bleeds) read this:

  39. Here’s a topic that exercised Baron as much as it does Mr. Webb, freezings to death and maintaining the required distance between the two of us, Baron had a long argument with a compliant neighbour about the 10 year prison sentence one can earn for visiting Portugal, not telling the authorities, this iis so outrageous it beggars belief anyone could even suggest it, yet not much of any uproar anywhere, where the hell is the healthy core of Britishness when one needs it?

  40. 10 years in the nick for an undeclared trip to Portugal? Wancock’s having a larf, innit?
    This judge thinks so anyway.
    Still, get yerself a dingy ride and you’ll avoid all that and get free 4* hotel too.

  41. Here’s a discussion you won’t find elsewhere, the. Hitchens v Hodges Lockdown debate. You may differ in who had the better of it but the truly sad thing is that such discussions are now as rare as a politicians honest expense submission.

  42. Groundhog Day:
    Oh goody, another week another lockdown in Melbourne…

    In other news:
    Is it today, or next week, that the “Never Trumpers” in the GOP vote with the “Democrats” in the Senate to convict The Donald?

  43. Trump to seek political asylum in Moscow…

  44. Nice beard on Hitchens, Noa, fashionable, too, but Baron watched the debate only until Hodges offered to label the sceptics deniers, this was, as Hitchens pointed out, a dead end.

    You haven’t lived in a totalitarian society, genuinely totalitarian, a closed dictatorship, in a sense one couldn’t leave it, emigrate, it was a nationwide Gulag, and the most common way the opponents of the regime were silenced was exactly in the manner Hodges did it, labelling the other side, accusing it of something so revolting that there was no room not just for a compromise, but the right for the ‘deniers’ to have another say from then on, they were finished, became outcasts, got tainted beyond repair, contaminated beyond reprieve.

    In Baron’s life he experienced it at full throttle few times, once when in a large audience he scored on a subject under discussion until a ranking rep of the party said ‘that’s what a lackey of the Western bourgeoisie would say’, just this one sentence, that was it, nothing else was required, the audience was asked to vote by raising hands for or against Baron, they were all against.

    We seem to be getting pretty close to something similar, Hodges should have given specific examples of the sceptics getting it wrong, he kept repeating the scientists in the skeptic’s corner were proven wrong, but how, when and on what?

    We would not be in the shite we’re in, if we did what Baron suggested from the start, check the temperature of everyone landing here at all ports of entry, sort the OK ones and the not OK, wear proper two layer masks, the outside made of a washable stuff (cotton, ramie, silk), the inside layer of N95 standard or better, replaced each day, look after the vulnerable. That would have been enough to keep the speed of the spread of the virus low.

    Many of you will disagree, mostly on masks, but you shouldn’t, if we can protect against gas molecules wearing masks (the size of one gas molecule is around one tenth of the c-19), we could have shielded ourselves against c-19 with the double layer masks not fully, but sufficiently to flatten the curve of infestations, and that would have been enough.

    The first meeting Hancock held on c-19 was on January 6, 2020, he talked to BJ the next day, but they did nothing until mid-March, then panicked, have been in a panic mood ever since. By the look of it, if one were to believe what they’re saying now, the country will continue with some or many of the restrictions not just for months but years. That will cripple us.

  45. Could someone help, please.

    Baron was trying to post the following on the Spectator blog, he couldn’t get it through. Can anyone figure what was wrong with it? Thanks.

    “This posting of yours, Ryba, is far too factual, it says something about Russia only a very limited number of the employees at the Foreign Office may know about.

    In general, if one were to ask a member of the British establishment about Candiru (no pun intended), one would find he/she knows more about it than she/he knows of contemporary Russia. This o course has never stopped any of them pontificating about things Russian, adding a dose of moralising to it for good measure”.

  46. Baron – 23:33

    Maybe it was you mention of the “Camel Corps” that gave them the hump?
    maybe the Spectoid “moderator” had an attack of the vapours at your mention of the Candiru fish, having themself fallen victim? Probably thought that you were taking the piss? “They don’t like it up ’em” you know! 🙂

  47. EC @ February 13th, 2021 – 17:56

    You may have a point, EC, it’s a general disapproval that does it. Since then Baron tried to post few more times, different topics, all banned.

    That’s freedom of expression 21st century model.

  48. Here’s one that went on CW:

    Limit everything that releases CO2 ain’t enough, it won’t save the planet Sustenance as such with the capital letter S is the main culprit, one has to prepare the unimaginably large number of fields, seed then harvest them, get the raw soft commodities, the billions and billions of tons of them, processed, distribute then mould into whatever the market demand may require from simple bread loaves in the trillions to sophisticated cuisine in many a world restaurant, then collect and process both what’s left over as well human waste from the millions and millions of toilets ….

    All that must go if one’s serious about saving the planet.

    The solution the mankind must adopt forthwith is to nibble graze, we will have plenty of time freed from all the preparation of Sustenance, there will also be plenty of fields free of animals, like sheep, we will all go on all fours, nibble graze.

    Trust Baron, he knows, he’s thought this through.

  49. I thought this was interesting in conservative women.
    Sign the Climate Pledge
    All caring people will no doubt want to do their utmost to avoid the consequences of the climate Armageddon that is upon us.
    Now you can demonstrate your green credentials by taking a personal ‘Climate Pledge’ to ensure your future lifestyle choices help the planet to recover from the damage you have caused.
    My Climate Pledge
    I pledge to assist my government in achieving ‘net zero carbon emissions’ by 2050, but due to the seriousness of the climate crisis I will try to achieve this by 2030 through changing my personal lifestyle to the frugal one existing before the Industrial Revolution 250 years ago.
    I accept that China should be given a free pass on increasing its CO2 emissions and the building of numerous new coal-fired power stations until 2030, and allowed to continue to increase its overall share of global human CO2 emissions, currently 30 per cent.
    I accept that by relying on weather-dependent renewables for power in my own country that the provision of energy will be intermittent and more expensive and will need to be rationed. Consequently I understand that my usage of electric and gas will be controlled by utility companies through the installation of smart meters in my home and business.
    I accept that private fossil fuel cars are outmoded and shall switch to an electric vehicle in the full knowledge of the damage caused to the environment by the mining, often by child slaves, and processing of the materials for their construction, and that China owns many of these natural resources in various parts of the world.
    I am not concerned at the huge costs involved and appreciate that in order to avoid the Climate Emergency, I will need to make, at the minimum, the following permanent lifestyle changes:
    I will travel only by bus, cycling, walking or train. No flying except in an emergency.
    No spring water in plastic bottles, no imported food or food out of season when there is a local alternative. A drastic reduction in meat eating is needed, together with severe limitations on consumption of dairy and fish, achieved by way of taxation.
    No hot daily showers, an embargo on throwaway fashion clothes, no cotton. Infrequent washing of clothes in tepid water and no artificial drying of them should be the norm.
    Minimal home and workplace heating will be the norm, which will be combined with regular power cuts. There will be limited public street lighting.
    Drastic reductions of energy-guzzling internet and social media use, combined with a substantial reduction in the consumption of music, film and TV streaming services, especially in high definition format.
    I understand that smartphones and computers will be rationed to one per household. Such devices will be kept indefinitely and used infrequently.
    I will enjoy only one weekly cup of habitat-destroying coffee and curtail consumption of vegan foods which have achieved mythical status in relation to their supposed ability to save the planet. Many vegan ingredients come from all over the world, often by air and have huge carbon footprints.
    I will forgo endless home deliveries of fast food and items from Amazon which I can order at 8pm and will arrive next morning.
    I recognise that many modern comforts will need to be scaled back or discarded, and I aspire to become part of the 19th century lifestyle whose lack of amenities I had previously viewed with incredulity. By our lead, I believe we in the advanced West can persuade those countries not cutting CO2 emissions to follow our example and accept lower living standards, a shorter life span, poorer health and a reduction in our ambitions.
    I understand that that if the science is correct, after 20 years sticking to this Climate Pledge CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere will not have reduced from today’s level and that temperatures will not have dropped by any measurable amount. However, I remain willing to reduce my standard of living and that of my children and grandchildren to save the planet from one of the variations in climate which have happened regularly over the estimated 4.5billion years of its existence.

  50. Rita Thunderturd says farting cattle are destroying the planet. Well, that’s good enough for me! Kill ’em all, I say. Let’s have one final giant summer BBQ and have done with the lot, once and for all!

    Greta is not too keen to call out the Chinese with it comes to environment devastation and pollution, strange that.

    Tumble Dryers should be banned. We’ve never used one. Dishwashers are a profligate waste of time and energy, and they are never that effective, Plastic milk containers should be banned, Milk should be delivered daily, in Jugs. Preferably big ones, warm to the touch ;-

    While we are at it, ALL TVs should be placed in the nearest skip. Electronic communication devices? Social should take place at the local pub, over a pint. Pubs with beer? Remember that?

  51. Baron,

    You are a fan of the oddities of the English language, Ne?
    I hope you enjoy this one 🙂

  52. Baron,

    Navalny’s fugging underpants:

    Sorry, I’m cynical about so much the content that I see presented on YouTube… no matter where it originates. From Nathan Rich to Mr BaldandBankrupt.

    This young lady is a little older than Rita Thunderturd, very articulate, much better educated but imo just as naive. A former exchange student the University of Minnesota she thinks that their college system is great and graduates are fighting off job offers when they get their degrees – LOL. She doesn’t appear to have any understanding of geopolitics or the foreign funders of all the NGOs in Russia of which she is a fan. In another one of her videos she was lauding the BobDellingCat outfit and their part in uncovering Navalny’s acrid underpants… which as you know… triggers a CIA warning bell for me… on both counts.

    Ice Man Bad! She it not a fan of Vlad. She might hate whoever his “progressive” successor even worse! Serve her right if Nicky McKrankie, Justin Trudeau, or Jacinda Ahern took over and fugged the Russian economy up even worse!

    She has hundreds of videos up. She doesn’t like older people. Maybe it’s the generation war. She and her age group will inherit Russia eventually and probably fugg things up even worse!

    See what you think…

  53. EC @ February 14th, 2021 – 16:44

    For reasons that you are are aware of, EC, Baron disagrees with the young girl on virtually everything she says, you’re right her knowledge of the world’s limited, but she should be very much backed to say what she thinks.

    She visited the American Republic, liked it there, she dreams of creating the same in Russia, this is unlikely to happen, but she should be left alone peddling her take on things Russian or not Russian. It’s a sign of a society that’s vibrant, not afraid to speak up, searching for accommodation wit the future.

    For reasons that are obvious to you and Baron, demonstrations in the West are interpreted differently from those in Russia, any crowd that shows displeasure in the land of the Russians is taken as the beginning of the end of the Russian model of society. People in France have been demonstrating for months it seems to bother no-one, nobody would say it’s because Micron’s no good, he has to go, a replacement should be in place. Just the opposite of what’s said about the demonstrations in Russia. The same goes even more about the American Republic with many a victim created by both side, the authorities i.e. the police, and the demonstrators also.

    Here’s a clip from the TV station ‘The Rain’, women in Moscow and St Petersburg staged a demonstration in support on N’s wife (she left the country, is in the West currently, probably being briefed), unfortunately it’s in Russian, but the guy’s essentially repeating the same narrative that the women are there in solidarity with N’s wife, the line is hundreds of meters long, to show solidarity with N’s wife, other female companions of N, every women everywhere bla, bla, bla.

    The women he talks to say the same, there are also some men, he calls them provocateurs, one holds dollar banknotes, another hands out flowers … No police even though the demonstration is not legal, they have the same rule for the c-19 pandemic as we do here, not getting together for more than six people.

    Overall, this is again a good sign, Baron’s absolutely in support of such gatherings, even if, as happens here, the temperature is minus 14degC (or so the young guy says). the MSM poodles have never covered the demonstrations in Russia before to such an extend, but there have been many in the past, by far bigger than what’s going on now, the ones against the charges in the pension age were mammoth, not much said about them here because we’ve changed the pensionable age ago.

  54. If you object to C-19 passports, here’s the petition to sign:

  55. Baron – 08:59

    Yes, the lovely Natasha’s complaints about the Russian regime seem somewhat trivial when one considers that even mildly dissenting Netizens on “Youku” in Xitler’s China are shut down in five minutes and carted off by PLA never to be seen again.

    Natasha only has to wait and her generation will get to screw things up in their own uniquely Russian way. If I were her I wouldn’t be in a rush to take a leap into the unknown.

    Humanity’s folly:

    “Love Is The Delusion That One Woman Differs From Another”
    H.L. Mencken

    Much the same could be said about governments and leaders! “The King is Dead. Long live the King!” The new bloke is going to be much better than the last one.. innit.

    For some reason that reminded me of Kris Kristofferson’s song about a gunslinger, “The New Mister Me” which could serve as the swan song for any leader, especially in the political arena!

  56. Some who calls himself Bob3 has this today over on the CW blog site:

    So what good exactly is the vaccine?
    It doesn’t make you safe,
    It doesn’t make others safe,
    You still have to wear a mask,
    You still have to social distance,
    You still have to obey lockdowns.
    You cannot go abroad on holiday because the tour operators will have all gone broke along with the airlines, in any case under the great reset it will create far too much of a carbon footprint.
    You cannot go to the pub if they are all closed too and alcohol is banned for environmental reasons.
    You cannot go out for a nice meal because meat is going to be heavily carbon taxed.
    And you can forget about driving even if you can afford an electric car, there won’t be enough power in the grid and the power companies will cut you with with their smart meters.

    No vaccinations will not be of any use at all, except for government to control you and your movements.

  57. EC @ February 15th, 2021 – 11:56

    Seconded, EC.

    It’s truly a pity Baron cannot post few bits from over there in the East, it’s all in bloody Russian, debating galore, views aplenty for and against everyone and everything.

    Baron has togo out, will report when he gets back.

  58. Pen gate: It’s worse than we thought…

    Now that Biden is wearing two masks suddenly everybody is.
    Some wit (Mark Dice?) suggested that the only reason Biden started wearing two masks is that he puts a new one on every morning and had forgotten to take the old one off. He’s now he’s taking bets on how many masks Joe will be wearing by the end of of the week!

  59. Delingpole speaks with John Waters

    The James Delingpole Channel
    38.6K subscribers

    “John is just about the last real journalist standing in Ireland – he and James talk about rock n roll, the death of the mainstream media, the Corona madness and much much more..”

  60. You will like it, the video below, EC in particular, Mr Webb’s right, the China’s claim to the South China Sea islands goes far beyond what the country should expropriate for herself, her Taiwan threats should not be left unanswered either, the behaviour in other spheres of the world e.g. in Africa is abominable also.

    The thing is though ‘Is it too late to stop China?’

    You may recall Baron’s argument that it isn’t Russia that’s a military threat to the West, but that it will be China getting rich, buying us up. Until the c-19 pandemic nobody had mention China much if at all, it was all Russia, Russia, Russia, still is.

    Not many American companies sourcing stuff from China have listened to the Donald, returned back to the Republic, on the contrary, they are expanding both the operations in China, as well the sourcing of the American demand e.g. Walmart.

    The Japanese Government offer of financial support to their companies in China if they relocate back to Japan has failed abysmally, only some 7% said they would consider it, the others declined fully, National Panasonic is even planning to move its HQ for consumer electronics to China.

    The reason for the behaviour of the Western corporates obvious is , Baron has said it many times before, it’s the size of the Chinese retail market, the 1.4bn retail customers still not saturated with consumer trinkets, which the eager Chinese unwashed believe would make their lives happier if they possessed them.

    Not many of you will agree with Baron, but he reckons we have to accommodate China, it’s too late to oppose the country head on, we have to first reduce our dependence on her (the Donald’s ‘MAGA’, the same for Europe) only then could we subdue the colossus that China has become.

    Counterarguments, please.

  61. EC @ February 15th, 2021 – 17:49

    One feels sorry for the man, EC, not that Baron backs or even feels neutral on the man’s policies, philosophy, integrity … but it’s just that one cannot but look at him with pitiful sadness, he must be breathing only because he’s medicated, it must be awful for him, no?

  62. Apologies for the errors, truly sorry.

  63. It’s not so much what the man says (you can put the captions on), it’s the reaction of those posting below.

    It was e-mailed to Baron from one of his American friends who’s keen on Putin, would prefer him even to the Donald, this is an error of judgment, Baron reckons, Putin’s unquestionably suitable for Russia, they are a collectivist tribe (as opposed to one made of individuals brought together by a historic circumstance)

    ‘Journey Into Russia’ by Van Der Post Laurens explains the differences between the western and eastern (also African) tribes well, anyone wanting to get to decipher the Russian enigma should read the book, to get the differences on an individual level ‘The Hedgehog and the Fox’ by Isaiah Berlin is useful.

    (If there any errors, sorry)..

  64. Texas, and not just the Lone Star State other states also, are frozen, millions have no electricity proudly supplied with tens of thousands of turbines, solar parks prior to the cold arriving, not much on it in our MSM except for the Guardian.

    And yes, one may have guessed it, the rag says too it’s all because of global warming, a climatic change engendered by, who else, us, the non-caring humans.

    The rag says that the fossil fuel operated power generation also failed, even more than the turning contraptions & solar panels, the oil and gas fuelled plants are apparently also frozen, as are the transmission lines, half broken by the powerful winds sweeping the Republic’s south or close to it.

    What the imbeciles at the Guardian fail to comprehend is that the key failure is that of the ‘fuel’, both the rays of the sun and the winds are intermittent, they cannot be guaranteed to supply the necessary oomph if the winds are either too strong (Texas) or absent (Germany), the same goes for the sun, but not for the fossil fuels.

    One can repair turbines, solar panels and the fossil fuel generators, one can secure them better against the elements, that’s not where the major fault lies, it lies in that one cannot ensure the uninterrupted availability of moderate winds or strong sun rays often when these are most needed, no such problema for oil or gas, these two fuelling substances are available continuously, 24/7, plenty of them world over, and absolutely no intermittency there.

  65. Baron, February 17th, 2021 – 09:57

    Climate change: As I’ve been saying for at least the last decade the “real elephant in the room” isn’t CO2, it’s too many fuggin people caused by too many people fuggin!

    Vee need another war, a proper one this time! Either that or we need the boffins at Porton Down to come up with a virus that only affects the people in the enthusiastic breeding hotspots of the world.

  66. Baron, February 16th, 2021 – 12:20

    I’m sorry but I do not have one scintilla of compassion for the man, his family, or the rest of the disgusting cabal that staged the coup d’état last November.

  67. Baron, February 16th, 2021 – 12:13

    The government of any country that allows the production of any vital strategic supplies to be moved to another country is failing in its primary duty to protect its population. In addition to that, the export of domestic jobs and production to other countries to make a few cents extra profit on a widget or to cheat on some arbitrary carbon emission targets is equally harmful to its citizens. Also morally reprehensible when those countries exploit prison, slave or child labour.

    Added into the mix we have had the EU, for at least the last two decades, effectively stealing UK jobs by offering huge investment grants, and no doubt bribes, to UK companies to relocate to some of the poorer regions of the EU. It’s time that some of these jobs were repatriated by incentives of reduced tax or import tariffs to reduce the profits of the unwilling.

    All the sanctions placed upon Russia no doubt hit them hard but it also did them an enormous favour. The forced them to find new markets for exports and produce domestically that which it was not allowed to import. Even so, Vlad always had Frau Merkel and the EU cabal by the short and curlies because all he had to do was turn of the gas taps and Germany and other contries would freeze in winter!
    (ironic that gas would the Achilles Heel of the Wurst und Sauerkraut eaters)

    Is it too late to stop China? You have to bear in mind that China started planning for today at least twenty years ago. Long term strategic thinkers!

    Pre Mao’s “Great Leap Backwards” their favourite strategy game was GO. A game of simple rules but fiendish subtlety. It’s called 圍棋 (Wéiqí) in Chinese or 囲碁 (Igo) in Japanese. A great rivalry as to who is best exists between them! I used to play it in my youth. I have a few books on it buried somewhere in this chaos.

    I would like to go to Japan before I kick the bucket. Some fabulous scenery and food there, if we are ever allowed to fly again. Anyway, some years ago I was talking to a Japanese waitress (student) in an Auckland restaurant and asked her if they still played GO in Japan. She looked briefly puzzled and then replied. “Ah yes, that’s mainly/only played by old men now.” LOL

    Is it too late to stop China? contd…
    In GO a direct attack often only serves to strengthen your opponent.

    Spot on, EC, look how did China get where she’s today? On its own? Never, they’s used or misused our best to improve on it, we should do the same, use what they have, improve on it. The Cambridge Science park is going ‘all the way Huawei’ 5G to work on the next G or something that should, hopefully will outsmart them.

  71. The only problem with sanctions, other tools of an economic warfare is the enemy may get enough, switch to bombs, that’s what worries Baron most, he has a stake in the future, tasted the tail end of WW2, would not wish another such conflicts o his grandsons, the morons of the American GEs (governing elites) seem determined to push both Russia and China, Iran to the limit, there’s no telling what if one or the other or their proxies start something that will draw the whole world into it? Lunacy.

    That’s painful, EC, whatever happened to us, and not only in America, the bureaucratisation of our lives has spread like cancer everywhere, the whole world seems to have been infected, the dancing to$$er doesn’t;t give a $hite, he or she, hard to say what sex the dancing creature is, gets his pay checks each months, the guys working the brewery don’t, but it was the brewery that enabled the prat to get his monthly pay.

  77. How did the sources of energy generation perform in Texas when the Big Freeze hit can be seen best on the colourful graph near the bottom of the piece. Had it not been for gas, coal and nuclear the good burghers of Texas would be ice-mummified today, almost all of them:

  79. Baron, February 18th, 2021 – 22:15

    All read. That’s one of the best articles throwing light on “what’s been going on” with America vs China for the past decades that I’ve seen in. Well argued, plausible, and explains a lot. I presume that article is the summary of a much larger work, maybe a book he’s written.That being the case I don’t expect the author will get any coverage in the oligarch owned press or MSM anytime soon.

    Now Xi has his man in the Oval Office there’s no need to worry about what’s going on in China, “They just have culturally different norms” said Joe on TV recently.

    With California elite #old# money and conspiring with the #new# money conspiring with the CCP China then most people in USA will be taking it up the arse for decades to come… unless there is an uprising. Not surprising that the DEMs want to repeal the 2A and grab all the guns. The November election was rigged and not surprising that Pelosi et al, knowing their illegitimate, have surround themselves in DC with barbed wire, troops and tanks. Always a sure sign!

    Amazing how the same four family names keep cropping up throughout CA’s relatively short and murky history.

  80. EC @ February 19th, 2021 – 11:47

    On the Thirty Tyrants: Agreed fully except for the reason for offshoring, that’s the one key thing the guy gets wrong, the offshoring of jobs from high labour cost countries to China began in the early 80s, the Japanese high tech and car companies were the first to spot the opportunity after China opened up herself for inward investment in 1979.

    The Japanese set up joint ventures, the counterparts could be anyone, mostly regional HQ of the CCP, or the military (preferred as these ventures had fewer strikes), the Americans and the Europeans arrived later.

    The initial attraction of China was indeed massively low labour costs, and a huge supply of such labour, it has little to do with any conspiracy of the US governing class, this came later, at the start, it was simply the corporates of America and other high labour cost countries doing what companies have always done, it’s the judiciary duty of the management of any company towards the company owners i.e. shareholders to better returns on their investment.

    The corporates couldn’t have missed the opportunity of setting up in China when the country opened herself up for foreign investment because the move gave more than an attractive boost to productivity, the corporates were able to lower costs hugely, which gave them the chance to either lower their selling prices of hoist margins as never before.

    Even today, the differences in min wage between China and the US are striking, in the US min wage differs from New Hampshire $7.25 per hour to the District of Columbia $15, but even if one assumes (say) $10 per hour i.e. eighty dollars per 8-hour day, in China the min wage ranges from $120 to $180 per month.

    Someone on a min wage in the American Republic earns in day and a half the same as someone on a min wage in China. Add to that advantage the energy cost, about half in China as in the UK, and you can see why someone whose competitors make stuff in China can hardly afford not to move there also if his or her company is to survive.

    As it will take time for the Chinese labour costs to catch up with the Western ones we can only beat them on other aspects that make up the final selling price, to hope that many large companies will follow the Donald’s call to come back home is a non starter whist the cost differences continue.

    The Four Families saga sounds too good to be true, but true it is, it’s a part of the same picture the Thirty Tyrants guy talks about, the form may be different, the driving force is the same, business making money through connections with legislators, judges, high ranking politicians.

  81. Baron,

    Here’s something for the weekend, Sir…

    Mr “baldandbankrupt” out and about in your home town and being interviewed on Radio Prague (Český Rozhlas) in which he discusses why he does it and some of his close shaves. You will discover during all his globetrotting experiences where was he most afraid for his life. The answer may surprise you!

    “Czech This Out! ”

    Český Rozhlas? I went on to their CZ home wepage just for fun.
    No disrespect, M’lud, but Czech is an infernal bloody written language! All those squiggles, nearly as bad as idiotgrams of the far east, Even the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt being simpler to master.

  82. One thing that appears obvious only when one joins the dots:

    At the time of China ridding herself of the Marx inspired delusion of communism (in the sphere of the economy definitely), opening up for foreign investment, the West, predominantly the Anglo-Saxon West, came to the view that manufacturing was so obsolete, so very much past it, with not much of any future that it had to be scrapped, abandoned in favour of services, financial services in particular.

    Amazing at it may seem, at the same time a revolution in long distance transport was under way also, the old way of moving stuff (mostly by sea) the old way that needed the loading and reloading at the points of the creation of the goods to be shipped, each package, bag or a box that can be handled by a man individually, then reloaded onto a ship at the ports of departure, then the ports of arrival … that method was being discarded in favour of containers.

    One loaded the steel box once at the point where the goods for shipping originated, took it to a port, loaded on a ship specially designed to carry first thousands later tens of thousand such massive steel boxes, unloaded them at the the port of destination from where a lorry, again specially designed for such lots took them to the customers.

    It may have taken weeks to get the stuff shipped that way but over the years, but it was deadly cheap and the system was capable of on-time delivery, the goods made in China could be delivered to a warehouse in the Midlands within hours to spare, the need for holding stock (an expensive item on a profit/loss account in any business) was reduced to a minimum, another source of productivity improvement giving a boost to margins.

    The making of the stuff cheaply in China would not have been that attractive for the Western corporates if containers as a new mode of shipping goods had not been invented, used increasingly since about the mid-70s.

    To sum up the rabbiting:

    It was the contemporaneousness of China opening up, the West intentionally abandoning manufacture switching to services at the same time of containerisation becoming the predominant shipping mode of transport operations that furnished China with an opportunity not of a life time but of all times in her history to pull herself up so spectacularly, no?

  83. EC @ February 19th, 2021 – 12:22

    Thanks, EC.

    Only this for the time being as Baron has to rush out (more later): The Czech Radio is liked, admired, listened to about as much as the BBC, all woke.

  84. The man was born a buffoon, looks and behaves like a buffoon, has a judgement of a buffoon dosed with itching ambition, but buffoon nevertheless.

    Why getting close to normality by June only, the bug seems to have seasonality attached to it, the sun’s out early this year, we should make use to it, why sitting at home, be allowed to visit just supermarkets and work premises, the most common enclosed places where the c-19 spreading happens most often, why not go out enjoy the fresh air, visit woods, parks, meadows, beef up on vitamin D, that’s the best natural cure.

    The lockdown should stop today, now, this minute, we already have 6mn people on unemployment benefits, the country’s indebtedness has never ever been that high in peacetime, the kids have never ever missed so much of education …..

    Madness, total and utter madness.

  85. This is long, quite demanding (it beats Baron most of the time), but it has a graph relating the level of vitamin D in one’s body and the rate of deaths of people aged around 60, the sample wasn’t large, but apparently the results are well supported.

    Beefing up on vitamin D would seem to be the answer, the experimental vaccines may well work, but they are risky.

  86. If anyone’s still there this is an interesting development, worth your while if only a quick scan.

    It seems that the old way China had been dealing with the inflow of dollars from their companies flogging trinkets to the West (increased considerably during the pandemic) no longer works, the central bank no longer buys in the greenbacks, stashes them in the vaults as foreign reserves or buys US Treasuries, instead the dollars remain on the balance sheets of the Chinese commercial banks, economists are speculation whether the Chinese authorities may be preparing to allow normal people to buy foreign assets including houses overseas.

    Sorry to hammer this one, but you may recall the poorly educated Slav saying often in the past when every politician and the MSM poodles were shouting ‘Russia, Russia ….. Russia is the existential danger for the West’ that it won’t be Putin’s Russia that would threaten us militarily, but that it would be China that will buy us up. How ironic it may actually happen, it will not be just Chinese companies )often state owned fully or partly), but also Chinese individuals buying assets everywhere.

    One wonders if the policymakers here are even thinking about it, it would be perhaps too much to hope they will do something about it.

  87. Baron, February 23rd, 2021 – 13:03

    Ah, but he’s “OUR” buffoon! 🙂

    I’m certain that the Chinese view most western leaders as either buffoons whether they’ve been bought or not. Even Sergey Viktorovich Lavrov who’s no doubt more European minded than his Chinese counterpart, Wan Hung Lo, considers the EU monstrosity in Brussels to be run by a bunch of buffoons.

    Baron – 12:03

    You are right about the Chinese. The property prices in Sydney, Melbourne and probably elsewhere in OZ are already skewed due to 1000s of Chinese buying property there. I wish one of the ‘tards would buy my house in the UK and then I’d leave!

  92. Germany made a deal with Georgia, the seriously impoverished country of 3.7mn people, mostly the old, the young have emigrated, over 600,000 to Russia despite the Government noticeable animosity towards Russia that contributed greatly to the impoverishment.

    The Georgians will be able to come on short term contracts to Germany to labour in agriculture, on the first day the registration opened (February 15) 53,000 Georgians signed up, they will get vetted, if they pass they can look forward to a working day from 8.00AM to 22.00PM for 5-6 days a week for 9.3 Euros per hour after food, lodgings and taxes.

    Says one of the political guys from ‘United Georgia’ “Stalin, the greatest son of Georgia conquered the Germans, but now thousands of Georgians are hurrying to Germany to get work to feed their families, what a poverty of our nation”.

    The paper this comes from says Georgia is also talking to Israel and France, hoping to sign similar deals.

    It seems then the Germans haven’t’t had enough immigration to do the heavy lifting for them.

    One cannot but have sympathy with anyone testing positive for c-19, EC, but surely Britain cannot act as a nationwide ICU bed for the world’s migrants, there must be one priority for the Government and that priority is the British people.

    Poor Nigel may be talking, making videos, but he hasn’t got the power to stop it, not even to give it wider coverage, the BBC and the MSM poodles won’t touch it, and sad as it is, the voters will still back either one or the other major parties’ candidates who will do FA about it. As Fran used to say ‘we’re fugged’.

  107. EC @ February 27th, 2021 – 11:15

    It doesn’t happen often, EC, but Baron must have missed what’s it all about, can you tell?

    And it’s Frank, sorry guru if you’re there watching over us.

  108. Here are two pieces, mercifully not too long, penned by someone called Paul Robinson, Baron hasn’t come across him before, one of the narratives was sent to Baron, the other he found looking the man up.

    If you were to read the stuff, just one point on the ‘Amnesty changing their mind’ article (2nd link below):

    Mr. Robinson ignores a key point for the jailing of N, it truly had nothing to do with his views in general, or on Putin in particular, he’s been advertising such views on both for years, almost decades, nobody has much bothered him.

    I has to do with the embezzling of half a million dollars from a Russian subsidiary of Yves Rocher, it was the sub Yves Rocher Vostok (East) that came up with the request to investigate the fraud (later the HQ YR claimed it wasn’t them, probably to avoid being branded Putin’s shills), but the initial request did come from the sub, the FSB have probably welcomed it, it suited them well. The sub certainly didn’t object to the trial, submitted evidence to it, accepted the verdict.

    Btw, the ‘roof’ (krysha) is rumoured to be Putin himself, not because Putin likes N, but because N’s standing amongst the Russian unwashed is low (<5%), amongst the other (smarter) opposition even lower, hence Putin, having nothing to fear from N, has let him to carry on making videos on anything N wanted to (often using the investigation results to sack people e.g. Medvedev), organising demos, making speeches because all that had been diverting attention from the real warts and boils Russia suffers from that the other opposition leaders wanted to focus on e.g. the pension reform, the staleness of the Russian economy, the worsening of relations with the West….

  109. Apologies for the mistakes, typing too quickly, not checking again.

  110. Noa, February 26th, 2021 – 16:06

    Sorry, Noa, I forgot to mention yesterday that I appreciated your re-Zycling refererence.

    Yes it was the great, imo, Norman, Baron, Tebbit (*formerly aka “The Chiswick Strangler”) that urged the unemployed to get on a bike, and go a search for work like his father had done. However his advice fell on deaf ears as in modern times, unlike 1930s, thanks to state “benefits” the unemployed had no financial imperative to go cycling except for maybe stealing someone else’s bike in order to sell on and score their next fix of whatever

    (*) It should be noted the Baron Tebbit does/did have rather large “stranglers” hands. Just as well for him, as on 18/07/1954 he had to punch his way out of the canopy of a beached burning Gloster Meteor jet fighter. Norman was not alone in having trouble with these flying coffins.

    “A total of 890 Meteors were lost in RAF service (145 of these crashes occurring in 1953 alone), resulting in the deaths of 450 pilots.”

  111. Baron, February 27th, 2021 – 22:18

    Frank would have been chuckling about this…

    The CCP will do exactly as they please now that they have their man in the “Oval Orifice”…as Frank used to call it.

  112. Baron. I’ve been making the point that the modern world would not be possible without containerisation for many years.
    It’s the key that unlocks everything else.

  113. John birch @ February 28th, 2021 – 22:07

    Agreed, John, the containers are the enabling technology in transport that cut the cost of moving stuff around substantially, in case of China, the benefits of their low labour costs would have been very much reduced if the shippers stuck to the old way of handling the cargo.

    Baron trusts you’re OK as is your family, just hang in there, things will eventually get better, one hopes.

  114. EC @ February 28th, 2021 – 11:01

    Thank you for the Meteor link, I hadn’t realised what a death trap the bloody thing was for anyone unfortunate enough to be posted to train in or fly it. You would have thought the Mod would have realised sooner, before aircraft and flight crew losses reached a quarter of those lost in combat during the Battle of Britain, wouldn’t you? Still, where there’s a government contract there’s an excuse. I’m not saying that there was any bribery or coercion, or the possibility of loosing export sales, just as there wasn’t any lack of proberty in the Lockheed Starfighter ‘Widowmaker’ sale to Germany, where they lost 292 of 916 aircraft and 116 pilots from 1961 to 1989.

    The “septics” set off with a pretty good DoI, written constitution & the Bill of Rights etc. but something has gone “a bit wrong” since then. All branches of states and federal government are totally corrupt and are now clearly beyond repair.

    I’ve been checking the pig grease on my stocks of piano wire, just to make sure I’m prepared for the revolution…. Though others are also noticing change is in the air.

  128. Noa – 13:31

    Many thanks, forwarded to a few not the many.
    That interview with Lord Sumption was outstanding!

    I really loved the reference @28:00 to the “dual” nature of the vaccine(s).
    I love dualities. eg. Light as a particle and a wave, not to mention the conflicting claims about the ROP, and many others.

    Save some of that wire for Prof. Pantsdown.

  129. Watching Brendan O’Neill talking about freedom of speech, wokery and the Merkel’s caused me to wonder how it is that ‘Spiked’, his communist organ is now a more traditional upholder of conservative values than Hislop’s Private Eye, which it has entirely supplanted.

  130. It’s gone very quiet.

    in addition to my @18:31 above, after a period of reflection, not a ‘reverse ferret’ you understand, and to make it clear that I’ve not gone soft..

    The reason I thought that the interview was “outstanding” was it such so refreshing to see an interview where the interviewer asked a question and the interviewee was allowed to answer it without interruption. His Lordship touched upon history and origins of democracy thereby trespassing on to Boot’s ‘Manor’ thereby risking his wrath. The interview was such a genteel affair I was waiting for the kindly, avuncular, Sumption to whip out his bag of Werther’s Original toffees and offer one to the young lad.

    Throughout the interview His Lordship looked far too pleased with himself. This always rings the alarums for me. [Dr. Anthony Fauci is a hundred times worse. Dodgy bloke, imo, “The man with the rictus smirk.”]

    On the vaccine His Lordship was guilty of conSumptioning his cake whilst still wanting to retain it. The hoi poloi can do what they like, must not be coerced, so long as he can get to his second home in Chianti-shire or the the Dordogne or wherever it is.. Vaccine passports are a bad idea for government to introduce but OK if airlines was to introduce them if it makes it easier to get to his foreign gaff etc.

    I am assuming that mastery of advanced cognitive dissonance techniques is a prerequisite in order to rise to the top of the judging profession. This was underlined by the fact that he was a “Remainer.” Professing to be a libertarian whilst wanting to perpetuate a centralised, undemocratic fascist kleptocracy… the EU, is in essence, being a proxy for the ongoing German project to dominate Europe.

  131. as usual, e&oe above.

  132. In case you missed it… an icy blast from the past.

    Love Your Servitude – Aldous Huxley & George Orwell

    Sometimes we must take our allies as we find them, Remainers, republicans and such like. Warts and all.
    If you find his views on the consequences of Wu flu in contradiction to his EU support you may be intrigued by his views on the growth of the o’rweening power of the judges at the expense of Parliament as argued in his Reith lectures. Still, he gave it all hup to finish his history of the 100 years war. Each to his own….

  134. Trying to make sense of “What’s been going on?”
    Perhaps you are not meant to…

    An Adam Curtis review of 2014. Seven years on, the main thrust of his argument about creating a climate of permanent confusion as a means of political control seems even more persuasive when trying to make sense of geopolitics today

    Vladislav Surkov gets the credit from Curtis for assisting ‘The Boss’ in implementing his particular domestic version, but as Niccolò Machiavelli used to say, “There’s nothing new under the Sun Tzu.”

    I had never heard of Vladislav Surkov before but the lad appears to have done quite well for himself. Anybody know how well Boris’ former Svengali, Dom, is faring these days?

  135. Get yourself facially recognised soon:

    The guy isn’t to EC’s liking but the point he makes seems common sense, the problem isn’t the technology itself, but as always the use it’s put up to, no?

  136. EC @ March 10th, 2021 – 09:54

    The guy isn’t a revelation for Baron, EC, if memory serves he was a deputy PM some years ago, it was he who was in charge of Ukraine before the country was taken over by the Americans in February 2014.

    Every MSM pundit has been assigning almost magical powers to him, whether true or not who can tell. In Baron’s humble view, it’s all poppycock, the guy is just one of many who come and go, someone called Dugin was another star that has faded away.

    Surkov’s not backed by any segment of power in Russia, it’s just his own ability that sustains him, not enough if and when it matters.

    On the one project he was entrusted with, Ukraine (if true), he hasn’t done brilliantly anyway, the most biting sanctions on the Russian economy by the Americans were the result of the Russians meddling in East Ukraine.

  137. EC @ March 9th, 2021 – 21:58

    Informative, and surprisingly not much dated, thanks EC.

  138. Noa @ March 6th, 2021 – 09:47

    It seems, Noa, the cycle of switching places doesn’t apply to publications only, but on a longer time sale to societies or even regions also.

    Fifty years ago or so it was the East marching solidly to communism whilst the West pursued its capitalistic wealth creation with many enjoying a lifestyle that the previous generations couldn’t even dream about, but now, it’s the other way round, the East having adopted mercantilism is getting richer and richer as the West, turning pink and communal, decided wealth creation would kill it what with the CO2 ‘polluting’ the air turned to trans toilets as the goal of the ultimate happiness for its unwashed.

    Truly amazing what can and does happen in just a few decades, no?

  139. Baron 10th March 12.28
    After watching some of the show with comrade Operah, and churning over the fatuous tissue of lies, deceit and fantasy that it dumped over our society I can only marvel at the fact that anything still remains of Western civilisation at all, and for how much longer it will. The tapeworm of internationalist Marxism has now invaded the very bowels of the West, from Stasi protoge Angela Merkel in Germany to Princess Merkel (no relation, surely?) in Hollywood? From Cilmate Change and the free movement of Africa to Europe, to unconscious white racial bias we are simply witnessing the tapeworm threnody of Karl’s doctrinal bastards spreading and breaking in the gut of a terminally infected host.

  140. Baron – 11:49

    No worries 🙂
    No one has ever paid the slightest attention whatsoever to who, or what, EC likes in any situation you care to mention. Also what I think or believe matters diddly squat. (I do hope that Clarkson hasn’t Trademarked that term for his farm shop produce)

    Now Nathan Rich, imo, is a troubled soul. He has a troubled past which you can Google. I believe that every everyone deserves a second chance, or in Nat’s case a third or fourth chance. The past is the past. I neither like or dislike him. I am, however, skeptical about his a lot of his claims and output… which many others have Fisked.

    I sincerely hope he continues to prosper in his adopted country and I also hope that his new friends don’t turn on him when his “shelf life” eventually expires.

  141. appoologies for the erroirs in this and also the above!

  142. Baron – 12:10

    Was it not any Russian meddling in East Ukraine the direct result of the EU meddling in the rest of Ukraine, then as the result of Khrushchev’s meddling, followed by Vlad’s annexation of Crimea backed up by a referendum? Just asking….


    Here’s a recent, March 8th on the ground report from the Donbass region.

    Pay particular attention to what the babushka (sp?) @14mins31sec has to say!

    It’s a pitiful state of affairs that the EU, and the Septics, have left these poor people in. Any aid having been siphoned off by EU apparatchiks, domestic scum-suckers and foreign ones such as the Bidens,

    On the upside (Mr) baldandbankrupt found the specific Soviet mosaic of the Cosmonauts that he was looking for. (.. of which there are many)

  143. Baron

    POW/Hostage/Propaganda videos:

    When all fact checking has bee exhausted, in the end I suppose it all comes down to what one is prepared to believe. I choose to believe that Matthew Tye is genuine. He was in China, literate and assimilated, before the guy above had finished with his previous career.

    It’s all Mike Pompeo’s fault, innit?

    “China is reacting with a terrible coverup, and forcing Uyghur people to have interviews to say how amazing their lives are, and how the west is wrong about the allegations of forced labor, and the other atrocities happening.”

    In the end, as the babushka (sp?) in Donbass said, “When the owners fight the slaves suffer.” Truest thing I’ve heard for ages.

  144. EC @ March 10th, 2021 – 17:20

    The B&B guy is priceless, EC, one can learn more about a country watching a couple of his videos than from an MSM hack with massive support and plenty of cash pushing a agreed narrative. Amazing that the old girl could sum up their life today in just few sentences.

    The country wasn’t doing well before the 2014 Maidan putsch, but after the takeover by the West things turned south very quickly, Baron knows a man who hires Ukraine manual labourers, the stories they tell border on the unbelievable. And Ukraine was supposed to be the part of the USSR that was predicted together with the Baltic Republics to have the brightest future of all the separate parts of the Soviet Empire.

    Neither the EU nor the Americans care about the unwashed today, for the latter Ukraine only provides the opportunity to place their missiles few hundred miles closer to Russia. Unless Ukraine gets an IMF loan soon, it will be bankrupt by May.

  145. Why is this case given so much publicity? One can only guess that cases like this happen more often, the victim may not always be a young beautiful women, but what’s so important here that the BBC gives it almost five minutes? Anyone knows?

  146. Here’s a thought you may like to ponder:

    The Woke movement of the progressives has captured almost the entire institutional set-up of the country, they either control directly the most important pyramids of power such as the academia, the MSM, the schools, the unions and whatever, or have an indirect control on other power pyramids including the most important one, the Government, which seems not to have the guts to stop any of the demands of the deluded. There’s just one institution that hasn’t yet been fully taken over, mostly because of the head of it, HM the Queen.

    Does it not strike you that the interview of the two, in reality quite insignificant members of the royal set-up, could be the beginning of the eventual takeover of the mOnarchy by the Wokers?

  147. What’s in the name?

    An American James French killed two people, caught, sentenced to die by the electric chair on August 10, 1966. His last words: ‘What a headline – ‘French Fries’.

  150. What Tucker says about Biden is undeniably true, what he says about the military applies also to other institutions, and not just in the American Republic but elsewhere, our institutions are true to their history only in what the labels say, not because of the people that fill them today, it’s all identity, quota, one’s tribal membership rather than merits. This cannot do us any good in the future, where are the elders of the political phylum when the country needs them?

  151. EC @ March 13th, 2021 – 09:53

    What a timely posting, EC, thank you. Baron has been experiencing weird happenings recently, his internet connection cuts off, if he wants to reach foreign sites it takes ofter long enough to get the message ‘this page is not available …’, it has happened before but seldom, it’s happening these days almost without interruption, 5-7 times per 2-hour session, postings are hard to go through, funny that.

    if it continues Baron will have to seek a remedy, one’s told one can use a different search engine that hides one’s IP number (Baron will investigate). Have you got any ideas what to do?

  152. I’ve shared ‘Stranger than fiction’ with you from Spectator

    Also you might try switching off your modem/router at the wall. Wait 5 mins and then switch it on again and it will be dynamically assigned a new IP address.

    Apart from that I haven’t got a clue.

  165. What are ‘cases’?

    On hears about cases rising here and everywhere, but is it exactly we are talking about?

    Obviously ‘cases’ are the people who test positive for c-19? If so, how many of such cases (a) end up in ICU beds, how many in hospitals, how many get cured at home, and how many don’t know they are infected (even if they’ve tested positive, they are asymptomatic).

    Don;t you think it would be useful to know the split, we may find out the ratios are trending towards the expansion of right end of the breakdown (symptomless), or the other way round (the ICU beds), which would be a powerful ammo for those arguing we should sty bunker down for the rest of our lives, no?

    Do these figures exist?

  166. EC @ March 19th, 2021 – 19:24

    Rather cheeky of Putin to challenge the challenged man for a chat, EC, no?

    Erdogan when ask whether he agrees putin’s a killer allegedly said: ‘Of course he is, the killer of the US’.

  167. The Russians are developing a powder version of the vaccine, apparently it expands the shelf life noticeably, helps the transport and storage. Baron forgets which of the three suppliers it is (cannot find the site), but it matter not. Perhaps we should tackle it also, it would add to our success so far.

  168. A guy who runs the Z-blog penned this:

    “Looking back, it is easier to see that the Soviet Union was an empire, because it is so obvious that America is an empire. We are also seeing more parallels between the two sides as the American empire enters its end phase. Like the Soviets at the end, the American empire is run by a collection of ossified geezers, clinging to a past for no other reason than they have no future. What happened to the Soviet Union thirty years ago is now happening to the American empire.”

    He then goes on highlighting the role of the Jewish phylum in the two Empires, their importance in their creation and their demise, that part is less interesting, can be agued against in parts anyway, but you want to read it, some of the postings are interesting, here it is:

  169. EC @ March 19th, 2021 – 13:58

    No, EC, he doesn’t;t have more titles than Baron, but he’s young, he has time to catch up, overtake.

    Baron’s told not to take life so seriously, in the end nobody gets out alive anyway, so one should have some fun even when all establishments designed to facilitate one’s enjoyment of fun and more are shut. FFS why?

  170. More than 100% agreement with what Tucker’s saying, the Dems are playing a risky and dangerous game that may backfire, lead to their demise if the ‘healthy core of America’ stands up:

    Well the Neocons’ PNAC didn’t last long did it? The Media, Judiciary, Academe, Federal Federal and States governments, CIA, FBI are all corrupt, local law enforcement castrated, and the armed forces full of long marchers. The US Constitution is dead in the water and the USA along with it. Tell me I’m wrong.

    So, then… Is it a Civil War or a descent into Corporate Feudalism first followed by a civil war?

    After giving the EU several recent mauling big bear Sergey Lavrov effectively delivered the ‘coup de grâce’ to them this week. The USA have been told to go and fuck themselves with their attempt to shut down the Nord Stream 2 project. China is now calling the shots in the Oval Orifice.

    Excellent stuff, Malfleur, just imagine when Karl Marx was walking the streets of London, penning his narratives that truly threatened the existing order, and yet the authorities not only let him speak and write what he wanted, but told the Continental Powers that ask for the agitator to be jailed to go jump the tree.

    How times have changed.

This wasn’t to the liking to the Russian Communist Party, they put in a request to the Police, they started an investigation of Soloviev on the basis that his remarks advance and foster Nazism, an ideology banned in Russia.

    This is only to show you that even Russia’s under the spell of wokenism, no country seems to have escaped this societal cancer, one would have to move further east like Japan to find some common sense, no?

    You may also remember that when the going got tough the inept pair got quickly ash-boxed when Vladimir Putin would only deal directly with the grown ups. Much the same situation as today with Putin & Lavrov dispensing with the current EU “High idiot” whose name escapes me.

    The Navalny case didn’t work out, Noa, they have to come up with something else, the Donbas region furnishes a good opportunity, it’s a win-win for the Ukrainians backed by NATO, Russia will not retaliate if the shooting starts for fear of being accused of another imperialistic aggression.

    Interesting times are ahead, the Americans have until about September, after that the job’s finished, the Nord-2 gets switched on.

    If the Nord-2 fails, the Germany’s energy supply will be in fully controlled by the Americans, they will run the pipeline going through Ukraine, they will also run the alternative to Nord-2, whatever that source of oil and gas may be, the Americans will impose their authority on it, except for Russia and Venezuela they have a hand in every other major oil field, or have at least a lever on the government that owns it. The Germans will be truly stuck, will have to listen to what Biden says or else. They must know it, will fight to get the Nord-2 finished, no?

  207. Baron,

    You will have no doubt seen the latest assessment from prolix Alexander Mercouris on the latest Ukraine border tensions? You probably have much better sources though.


    On March 31st, Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, released a one-hour television special entitled, Scientific Proof: Internationally Renowned Physicist Absolutely Proves 2020 Election Was Biggest Cyber-Crime in World History.

    The special broadcast features Dr. Douglas Frank who holds a Ph.D in Surface Analytical Chemistry for the University of Cincinnati. Dr. Frank is an internationally recognized scientist with over fifty scientific publications.

    In 1990, Dr. Frank discovered and invented a technique for creating three-dimensional images of molecules resting on surfaces. This led to a cover article in Science Magazine, which is the most-read science magazine in the world by scientists, and he was on the cover of the Naturwissenschaften, in Europe.

    Dr. Frank has spent countless hours since the 2020 election following the data of the election returns county-by-county across such states as Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Colorado, to name a few. Dr. Frank’s scientific and mathematical investigation has revealed that there was absolutely massive cyber fraud in the 2020 election.

    In the television special, Dr. Frank testifies to host Mike Lindell that deviations and mathematical impossibilities could not have been done by humans, but by artificial intelligence and computers that were running before, during, and after the 2020 U.S. election.

    Dr. Frank’s investigation reveals that the 2010 national census data was used to manipulate the 2020 election rolls and to inject phantom votes into the election totals. His scientific investigation documented and proved that numerous states throughout America had more people voting than lived in many of the counties.

    The injection of the 2010 national census data into the 2020 election rolls facilitated a crime that some experts are calling the largest cyber-crime in world history.

    Dr. Frank explains that the 2010 census was used to actually cast votes for voters that had either passed away or no longer lived in the county or state.

    In numerous documented cases, voters showed up to vote at their precinct only to be told they had already voted, when in fact, they had not voted. What is now being revealed by the scientific investigation of Dr. Frank is that these Americans had their vote cast for them through a highly sophisticated computer program.

    In this television special, Dr. Frank explains to Mike Lindell what tipped him off that a cyber-crime had been committed — not in just a few precincts, counties or swing states, but on a national basis. Dr. Frank also reveals that even in the states President Trump won, the President won those states by larger numbers than was reported.

    Scientific Proof is the follow up to the two hour docuMovie, Absolute Proof, that was released on February 5, 2021, and was seen by 70 million people in the first four days of its release, and over 150 million to date across 42 countries. Like Absolute Proof, the executive producers of Scientific Proof are Mike Lindell, Brannon Howse and Mary Fanning and was filmed by WVW Broadcast Network, and directed by Brannon Howse.

    Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

    “I have defended Natural Religion against a Confederacy of Atheists and Divines. I now plead for Natural Society against Politicians, and for Natural Reason against all three. When the World is in a fitter Temper than it is at present to hear Truth, or when I shall be more indifferent about its Temper; my Thoughts may become more publick. In the mean time, let them repose in my own Bosom, and in the Bosoms of such Men as are fit to be initiated in the sober Mysteries of Truth and Reason. My Antagonists have already done as much as I could desire. Parties in Religion and Politics make sufficient Discoveries concerning each other, to give a sober Man a proper Caution against them all. The Monarchic, Aristocratical, and Popular Partizans have been jointly laying their Axes to the Root of all Government, and have in their Turns proved each other absurd and inconvenient. In vain you tell me that Artificial Government is good, but that I fall out only with the Abuse. The Thing! the Thing itself is the Abuse!”

  211. BREAKING NEWS ‍⚖️ Matt Hancock Summoned HIGH COURT Over Pubs & Restaurants Closures Tues 6th

  212. Noa 2 April 4th – 11.22

    Right to be alarmed, particularly as the Chinese/Russian alliance grows stronger. The technological underpinning o Chinese science by their universities is, so far as my very limited acquaintance with science can judge, appears to be formidable.

    A while ago, I did spend a year at Northwestern Polytechnical University (see page 34) teaching English and improving (I think) my Chinese. I stayed at the downtown Xi’An campus and bused to class about 45 minutes – 1 hour outside the city to the very pleasant and more isolated campus there with its various excellent regional restaurants. I became particularly addicted to the Chinese breakfast, which I often have reveries about. The university had at that time about 3,000 students all engaged in subjects listed in the article posted by Noa. The undergraduates seemed mainly very personable, no doubt because the content of their English lessons was anodyne. I would be very surprised if any of them were not required to be members of the CCP. Given what we now know of Chinese penetration of American institutions, the thought of what some of these students may now have their sights on in England is as worrisome as Noa indicates. A nice place to visit though….

  213. The merits of the vaccination passport compared to the Chinese social credit system:

  214. EC @ April 4th, 2021 – 09:10

    Thanks for posting it, EC, an informative clip.

    Few points on Ukraine, the country in the news 24/7 before the Feb 2014 putsch, barely mentioned in the news ever since.

    Before the takeover in Kiev by the crowd that the EU & US had backed, Putin very likely decided he wants the Crimean Peninsula, but not the whole Ukraine, the country was already an economic wasteland, he must have figured the financial burden would be too much to justify the move of his missiles several miles to the West, the Americans can move theirs closer to the Russian border in Ukraine, if they didn’t Poland, even closer to Moscow, would have them anyway.

    The Americans have about six months to stage a false flag op, or the Nord-2 is completed, the Ukraine seems like the place to stage it, Zelensky’s so much in their pocket that to expect someone more obsequious would be unreasonable, today they have the best chance, they must use it.

    For Germany, the Nord-2 is a must, the current pipeline runs through Ukraine, Zelensky or any other stooge could cut the supplies to the West arguing to isn’t Ukraine that does it but Russia.

    If the Nord-2 is cancelled, another source or sources step in, the Americans will be controlling them, except for Russia and Venezuela they control the rest, and it will be the rest that will furnish the gas and oil, unless it’s America herself if N-2 gets the boot.

    In interesting times we live, nO?

  215. Malfleur @ April 5th, 2021 – 00:07

    The vaccine passports are useless, Malfleur, vaccines don’t prevent those vaccinated from getting infected, they merely reduce the symptoms, look at Chile, some two fifth of the country got the 1st shot, one fifth also the second and yet ‘case’ are shooting up.

    If the vaccines were to prevent those vaccinated from getting c-19 100%, why would they, the vaccinated, be bothered to be around the non-vaccinated people?

  216. Noa @ April 4th, 2021 – 11:22

    It will be read, Noa, Baron will report back, it feels interesting, sadly rather long.

    You miss the point. The pandemic is a lie. The vaccine passport will operate like, and is a version of, the Chinese communist social credit system. The lockdown is its John the Baptist.

  221. Baron “…For Germany, the Nord-2 is a must, the current pipeline runs through Ukraine, Zelensky or any other stooge could cut the supplies to the West arguing to isn’t Ukraine that does it but Russia…”

    For the UK it is crucial that we reduce carbon emissions, heating, light and power are secondary considerations to the politicians who are the mothers and fathers of Generation Extinction.
    Until the future energy crisis sees power cuts and martial law imposed. One year, two or five? stock up on candles and 12 bore cartridges.
    The insanity of it would make Frank weep.

  222. Noa,
    He’d have also been very very angry by now.
    Preppers are the only sane people left in the country. I hope that Nelly is keeping the Ark’s pantry/larder well stocked with provisions. Target practice with ‘cut shells’ every weekend from now on.

    Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

    Peregrine Bertie, the sad and exasperated warden of the East March, wrote to Robert Cecil in December 1600:

    ‘Yf I were further from the tempestuousnes of Cheviot hills, and were once retired from this accursed country, whence the sunn is so removed, I would not change my homlyest hermitage for the highest palace ther.’

    He envied Cecil ‘the sun of the South’ and prayed ‘that one rayon of such brightnes may deliver me from the darknes here, which I protest is no less to me than Hell’

    How can Belfast be so cold?
    a breeze in a summer front
    the unpredictable British weather
    Of intermittent warmth and dull
    drizzles of a torrential fizzle

    The titanic stands erected
    stilled by the western winds
    In stiles as robust as steel
    as shadowy silverly specks
    reflect on the unused puddles

    Southwards to the coastal shores
    where green shimmers magnify
    and blue waters justly testifies
    of the beauty of the north-eastern waters
    flowing from one glen to another

    It hasn’t been your “England” since you made the eminently sensible decision to “ship out” for good. I’m sure that many of us, would have done the same had we been in a position to do so.

    In his chamber, weak and crying
    Was our good friend lying;
    Loud, without, the tempest thundered,
    And the castle-turret shook,

    His friends cried out where is the gainer,
    Spite of vassal and retainer,
    And his lack of education plundered,
    Every Blog and every Book

  242. RIP Bernie Madoff, Ponzi with style. Who can forget the Gold Rolls Royce, the two leather uniformed lesbian chauffeausettes?

    I suspect our dear Baron is not on Chesil Beach.
    Could he have gone to China to make a few judicious investments?
    Or perhaps, like our esteemed Defence Minister, to Turkey to invest in the Ottoman Aerospace industry.

  244. Whilst British expats return from the Costa Del Crime in increasing numbers and our 4.5 million European settlers are making themselves at home in our nappy land.
    A double whammy, no less.
