Division over Ukraine
Supporters of the corrupt Zelensky regime see the Ukraine conflict as a fight between good and evil. They blame Vladimir Putin for starting it and they want to go on sending arms and money to Kiev. It's ironic that many of them are conservatives or nationalists who are opposed to abortion, sexual mutilation, Black Lives Matter, and open-door immigration - all policies imported from America that are opposed by their perceived enemy Vladimir Putin.
An anonymous reader has commented that most of the far-right websites support the Ukrainians, as does Georgia Meloni the outspoken neo-fascist prime minister of Italy, who proudly stated: "I'm Georgia, I'm a woman, I'm Italian, I'm Christian! You won't take that away from me."
She is right about controlling immigration, improving Italy's birth rate, and redistributing the wealth of the nation, but she is wrong about the war in Ukraine. She obviously relates to those Ukrainians who welcomed the Germans as liberators from communism in 1941.
I agree with Prof John Mearsheimer, Prof Jeffrey Sachs, Scott Ritter, and Col Douglas Macgregor, that the Ukrainian conflict is a proxy war between the USA and Russia being fought by the Ukrainians.
Donald Trump says that he could stop the war in a day if he was President, but Joe Biden and the Industrial-Military Complex are dreaming of driving the Russians out of Ukraine; even from Crimea.
We have been totally misinformed about the war in Ukraine. We were told that the Russians were stupid, cowardly, and fast running out of arms and ammunition. We were also told that President Putin was mad, suffering from cancer, and about to be deposed. None of it was true.
The economic sanctions we imposed on Russia are hurting us more than them. They have found new markets for their gas, oil, and wheat in India and China, but we have suffered an unsustainable rise in food and energy costs.
It's becoming increasingly obvious that this war is as unwinnable as Vietnam or Afghanistan. We are pouring money down the drain and the Ukrainians are sacrificing an entire generation for the sake of an American foreign policy that's stuck in the Cold War. Eventually this war will be settled around the conference table and Zelensky will flee to America or Israel; let it be sooner rather than later.

Looking through a copy of the Hornsey Journal that had been left in the public bar, my eye caught the following headline, 'Blatant Insult to Immigrants Alleged'. I quickly read the piece to see what terrible crime had been committed against our coloured brothers! And lo and behold not only had the racialist of Hackney failed to elect a black Labour candidate in a safe Labour seat, but crime upon crime his fellow Labour Party members had not elected him as an Alderman. It appears that immigrant leaders in Haringey believe that at least one immigrant representative should be found a place on Haringey Council. I always thought that is was the electorate who decided these things, but then perhaps I am just old-fashioned.
As I carried on clearing the lunchtime debris away I found on the floor a copy of the New York Times that must have been dropped by an American tourist. Right on the front page was an advert headed, 'Jews Don't Mix-n-Match'. Part of the text was as follows: "We hate no one, we look down on no one. Our blood is no purer, our genes are not better, we consider ourselves superior to no one. We love Jews and Judaism and want to preserve it for generations to come." Another part of the text ran: "There is no surer way to destroy the Jewish people than to marry out of the faith." I wonder what political swearwords would be used if anyone put an advertisement in the New York Times saying the same things about Anglo-Saxons?
On hearing the 10pm news that Prince Charles had made his maiden speech in the House of Lords on the subject of Sport and Leisure, one of my customers, Fred the master of wit and repartee, leering through his one eye, (the other being lost in the First World War while trying to leave a Paris brothel without paying), was heard to comment, "That's something he should bleeding well know about."
The other morning whilst having a quick half and a look through the licensed victuallers trade paper just before opening time, I noticed that with the news that the Methodists had voted to abolish the Church's policy of total abstinence, Allied Monopolies shares had soared. In a statement the Rev Lenin-Fosket, chairman of the Church's finance and investment committee says, "The fine new beers brewed by Allied Monopolies have enabled the Church to revise its policies and appear far more modern, progressive and democratic without deviating from our deeply held beliefs."
Whilst consuming a breakfast of succulent marinated kippers, the tender flesh of which oozed with a mouth-watering mixture of wine, oil and garlic, washed down with a pint of Guinness, I noticed a small paragraph tucked away in an inside page of the Telegraph. It seems that United Nations officials in Geneva have ordered copies of Alexander Solzhenitsyn's book 'Gulag Archipelago', to be removed from bookstands in the Palais des Nations, the UN headquarters in Europe.
One can only wonder at the mentality of people who advocate world government as a panacea for world peace, when they are prepared to publish hate propaganda and lies about Britain, South Africa, Greece etc., but supress the truth about Russia and the Soviet system. It's enough to put one off one's breakfast, even marinated kippers; 1984 here we come.

The news that Vsevolda Kniaszev, president of the Ukraine Supreme Court, has been arrested and charged with accepting a bribe worth $2.7 million comes as no surprise. With so much money being poured into Ukraine it's inevitable that some of it will be diverted into the private bank accounts of Volodymyr Zelensky and his entourage.
Benito Mussolini said: "You always get rats in a granary," and he was right. Accountants are supposed to accurately record transactions, and auditors are supposed to verify them, but they are only human beings who can be bribed.
Al Capone's accountant 'Easy Eddie' O'Hare turned State's Evidence and helped to convict his client. Predictably, he was shot dead in 1939. He was the father of Medal of Honor recipient Butch O'Hare after whom O'Hare International Airport is named.
An old story from the Construction Industry is worth telling. A property developer was alarmed at the rising cost of a project so he questioned his professional team. He asked his Builder: "what is two plus two." He replied: "It's difficult to say." He asked his Engineer, who replied: "given accepted tolerances it's between 3.5 and 4.5. He then asked his Architect. He replied: "blue with shades of pink." At last he asked his Quantity Surveyor. He said: "what sort of figure did you have in mind?"
Attempts to control corruption have not been successful. President Roosevelt gave all American politicians a rise so that they wouldn't take bribes, but that only upped the ante; instead of pocketing hundreds of dollars they expected thousands.
Even the British House of Commons is riddled with corruption. Every so often an MP is booted out for asking questions for money, or fiddling his expenses, and occasionally a minister is forced to resign for insider trading or outright bribery.
Such matters ought to be handled by the police but they are as corrupt as the politicians. The Steven Lawrence murder was the subject of the Macpherson Report which concluded that the police were 'Institutionally Racist', but the word on the street was that it wasn't racism that caused the police to bungle the investigation but a bribe from the drug-dealer father of one of the accused.
Money, as they say, makes the world go round.
Tunisia is clamping down on sub-Saharan immigration following a speech by President Kais Saied (pictured) who stated that there was: "a plot to change Tunisia's demographic composition."
Libya and Egypt are stopping Black African refugees at their frontiers and Saudi Arabian border guards are accused of shooting thousands of Ethiopians crossing from Yemen.
The Muslim religion preaches racial tolerance but many Arabs hold racist views. The tenth century scholar Abu Bakr wrote: "The pale brown colour of the people of Iraq is the most apt and proper colour. Unlike the Slavs of the north with their blond, buff, blanched and leprous colouring, or the Zanzi and Ethiopians to the south; black, murky, malodorous, stinking and crinkly-haired. The Iraqis are neither half-baked dough nor burnt crust, but between the two."
The following comment was posted on You Tube by an African living in the USA:
"Arabs invaded North Africa in the 6th century (a good book is The Arab Invasion of Egypt) and have been there ever since. The Arabs in Tunisia are not biologically African; they just live on the African continent. Being African is not simply a geographical term; it is also a biological identity like European and Asian. To be African, you must have a distinct biological makeup, i.e., a distinct skull shape, eumelanin, and tight to loose woolly hair. To say Arabs born in Africa are African is like saying an African born in Asia is Asian or an African born in Europe is European; it is not biologically possible because to be Asian or European you must have specific biological makeup, i.e., distinct skull shape, tan bronze skin, straight black hair, etc.
I think more Africans need to study biology because it is clear that the Arabs and others know that biologically we are different. We are the only ones who say anyone born in Africa or with a drop of African blood is African. We accept everyone because we are the parent race of mankind. Our downfall is that we are too accepting; we accept too much, and we even try to force others to be what they are not. Telling people of other races to identify as Africans is like telling a bear to identify as a shark - it's just not possible."
Don't Forget South Africa
Since South Africa was taken over by the Blacks the Whites have been largely forgotten. We should not forget them because they are mostly of Dutch and British descent and they fought alongside us in two world wars. They are an historic European nation of 4.6 million, with another 1 million living abroad. This compares to 5.2 million New Zealanders or 5.1 million Irishmen.
White people are only 7% of the total population of South Africa but their contribution to the economy is vital. White farmers were being killed at an alarming rate until recently. The police were unable to protect them, but they have organised their own security and the murders have stopped. Of course, the Blacks are still killing one another.
Africans are being educated and they are trying to develop the country, but they are faced with corruption on a massive scale. The entire infrastructure of South Africa is breaking down; power cuts are frequent, the roads and railways are in need of repair, the schools and hospitals are desperate for funds, and the police and the military are in a state of chaos.
The fact that the Whites survived the changeover to majority rule shows that all is not lost. Nelson Mandela is regarded as a terrorist by right-wingers but he was a practical man who knew that South Africa needed the Whites. Many of his African National Congress comrades were out-and-out racist but he was not. Apart from the farm invasions and killings the expected bloodbath never happened. A million Whites fled the country in search of work as the Blacks grabbed the best jobs, but now, the exodus has almost stopped and there is a small but significant increase in White immigration. Who knows what the future holds?
If we had a decent and honourable government in the UK we would welcome White South Africans as refugees and give help and encouragement to them at home. Unfortunately we have a perverse government that chases out European migrants and welcomes the teeming masses of the Third World. https://youtu.be/8d6cygp4QrU
