    Can Shackles Help Griner Grow Up? 

    It’s a fact that, often,  bad experiences can be good for you. When I was in my mid-teens, I failed a mathematics exam.

    This was not an unusual occurrence. I hated maths, had no interest in the subject, and on Mondays…




    ..when Mr. Sutherland imposed his weekly test, my performances were consistently dismal.

    I endured his strictures happily for maths didn’t matter.

    Excelling in History and English, good enough in Latin…



    …Greek and German, doing sums well or badly was not important in my life nor in my future, as I then perceived it.

    But suddenly I learned that the university I’d set my heart on required at least a minimal level of proficiency in..




    All summer long I toiled, little grasp of what was in the books, but over the weeks, developing a dashed fine ability to parrot what I read.

    And I passed the re-sit.

    So that May-time failure had galvanised me,  my mind made sharp and focused.

    Hence my headline.




    Griner has long shown herself a shallow, graceless brute….

    Honour Decal’ For Disloyal Griner? 

    As far as Brittney Griner, the Phoenix Mercury center and 2019 WNBA MVP runner-up, is concerned, there’s no valid reason for playing the national anthem before sports events and she plans to take a stand by continuing to remain in the locker room while it is played.

    Will BLM Lesbian Griner Stage An Anti-Flag Rant Behind Bars?


    ….holding her own country’s anthem in contemptuous indifference.

    A few sound thrashings when she was a brat might have helped…



    ….but too late for that.

    So might her current plight…..

    Britney Griner Appears In Russian Court In Shackles…

    ….at least make her realise how privileged she is to have been born in the United States, where she has been able to win fame and fortune.

    I see there’s talk of a prisoner swap.

    Perhaps Plastiqua Pelosi’s husband?

    Nancy Pelosi’s husband charged with DUI causing injury: Napa County DA

    He is also charged with driving with 0.08% blood alcohol level or higher.

    No …

    The 82-year-old was detained on May 28 around 11:44 p.m. and booked on two misdemeanor counts at the time, according to the Napa County Criminal Justice Network’s records.


    …because he is no longer behind bars  having been released the morning after!

    Austria’s Reds And Greens – Russophobic AND Rude! 

    Some readers may remember various stresses and strains involved in drawing up a list of guests to be invited to a wedding.


    It’s not usually the happy couple who create strife in these matters but rather sticky-beak in-laws-to-be, or other tiresome rels, getting some practice in for after the nuptials.

    More trouble is caused in marriages by interfering outsiders than any disagreement between man and wife, as a rule.



    Hence my interest in the report from Austria, where Karin Kneissl, the country’s Foreign Minister, was married last Saturday and had invited a foreign head of state to the big day.

    Why not?

    The visitor was in the vicinity and the invitation could only be good for inter-governmental relations.

    It’ll mean some nice pix for the wedding album too!


     BUT…the guest is Vladimir Putin.

    When Prince Harry married his beloved, there was talk of inviting Obummer, but I expressed no view on the prospect of having a racist rat at the wedding, because I believed that it was HRH and Meghan’s business, not mine or anyone else’s.

    Alas, at least one Austrian Socialist shrew has no such respect for the wishes of a bride and groom.

    Rude Regner


    A boorish MEP named Evelyn Regner called the invite “a provocation of European proportions.” It was “shameful!”

    And the pig-ignorant Green Party as a whole demanded that Ms. Kneissl resign!



    The far-left rabid Russophobes shrilled balefully that “Vladimir Putin is the EU’s most aggressive enemy in matters of foreign policy”.

    They need to check their song-sheets -usually Greens say THAT about Donald Trump!

    If Chancellor Kurz had invited the Russian leader for a state visit, any politician of any party would be entitled to express views for or against the plan.

    But somebody’s wedding?

    No way.

    Seems to me the Left were just being spiteful because Karin’s from the FPO patriot party.

    Kneissl, 53, who was nominated for the post by the far-right Freedom Party (FPOe), will marry businessman Wolfgang Meilinger in a ceremony in a wine-growing village near the southeastern city of Graz.
    Putin confirmed he would be attending the wedding before heading to talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel near Berlin on Saturday evening.  Putin’s attendance was originally described as a “private event” by Kneissl’s office but has since been upgraded to a “workmy iPad

      Oh yes, they are very rude, about Putin and about Trump.

      What they dislike about both men is that they stand up fot their own countries.
      Reds and Greens hate people who love and have pride in their countries.

    Solidarity With Poland, Against Historically Illiteracy! 

    Whilst I have defended RT against those who want to shut it down – which would be unfair unless state propaganda channels like Deutsche Welle, France24 and of course the BBC, were also shut down – its output can still rile me.

    Hands Off RT! Somebody Should Start A Petition! 

    Like this week, when it carried a story about ‘monuments’ which Poland intends to demolish.

    A Russian MP wants to have a crowd-funding campaign to move them to Russia!

    He’s “expressed concern about maintaining the historical memory of the liberation of Poland by the Soviet Army during WWII.’




    What a bloody nerve!

    Stalin could have liberated Poland, or at least Warsaw, when the Polish patriots in the capital staged their heroic uprising. Instead, he not only ordered the Red Army to stand down outside the city and lick their lips as the German occupation forces crushed the Poles.


    Gambar terkait


    Worse, when the Western Allies wanted to drop supplies for the freedom-fighters, the Soviet dictator interdicted what could have been vital help.

    Let’s also mention the Katyn Massacre, where thousands of Polish POWs were brutally murdered by the Communist terror forces, the NKVD, shot in the back of the neck and shoved into a mass grave.

    That was a deliberate tactic to facilitate the post-war marxist take-over – the annihilation of much of Poland’s natural leadership was seen as a big boost to Stalin’s plan for a Red seizure of power.

    So any chattering about how the Red Army ‘liberated Poland is offensive historical gibberish.

    Having statues that glorify the Red Army in Poland, or any East/central European nation, is very much akin to having a statue of Adolf Eichmann in Tel Aviv.

    • The Poles have, we read, ‘recently passed laws which ban any demonstration of Soviet symbols.’

    • ======

    Good work!

    Individual Russian soldiers, like any such soldiers in any army, in any era, may well deserve our admiration for courage and sacrifice, but in 1945 they were in the service of a satanic cause.



    The voluble Russian MP is quoted at length on his fury over a “a one-sided attempt to review the history of the Second World War that contradict the verdict of the Nuremberg Tribunal.” 

    Without going into the rights and wrongs of the Nuremberg Tribunal’s particular verdicts…

    Vishinsky – Stalin’s stooge-judge at Nuremberg


    …it has long been recognised that its entire raison d’etre was morally flawed by the inclusion on the judges’ panel of a Soviet puppet like Vishinsky, nominated by a regime rooted in mass-murder.

    If that historically illiterate Russian wants to haul such symbols off to Mother Russia, then before he starts talking hogwash about ‘liberation,’ he might reflect for a moment that the same regime that massacred, tortured and terrorised the Poles ALSO did the same to millions of Russians.

    Circumvent Google Gag Order! ‘Russia Today’ OK! 

    Just been channel surfing in my most agreeable lodgings far from home, but they have no Fox News!

    However, a good alternative is RT! They had an excellent piece on the American Ambassador  to The Netherlands, first asserting honestly that there were no-go areas in that country, then, later, obviously having been ‘got at’ by somebody, saying reports of no-go areas in The Netherlands were ‘fake news!’



    Wouldn’t see that kind of expose on the classic Fake News channel…

    Google’s plans to “engineer” algorithms to make it harder for articles from Sputnik and RT to appear on the search engine’s news service is direct censorship and a violation of the fundamental principles of freedom of speech…




    That’s fighting talk, and that impressive blonde in our photo above, Maria Zakharova, at Russia’s Foreign Ministry, deserves support against Google’s nasty collaborationist game.

    Google is hand in glove with the Brussels Empire, out to prevent voices of resistance being heard.



    We heard only last month from a British MP who made it very clear that people who challenge the ruling ideologies of the Western elites are hard-pressed to find Western media that’ll give them a fair hearing. He was talking about one of RT’s talk-shows.



     “The News Thing has given me a fair chance to explain my opinions on Brexit immigration and transgender issues, for which I am grateful,” Davies said.

    “Sadly, I have not received the same courtesy from the British Broadcasting Corporation. Instead, on several occasions, its highly paid presenters have criticised me by name without giving me a right of response.”


    Back to the Russian blonde!

    Such artificial ranking of search results “if introduced, will contradict both common sense and the human right to free access to information on the Internet,” she said. The move will also directly affect normal competition among the media, Zakharova added.

    I suggest that patriots take careful note of the RT link, and Sputnik’s, and check in on them two or three times a week, to get fair and free reporting on people and politics – Convicted Torturer’s Phoney Kwanzaa Holiday Exposed –  on whom and on which you might otherwise get VERY slanted news!

    Safeguard Kids From Queers? No Way, Say Robed Rogues 

    The European Court of Human Rights ruled that a Russian law banning what it describes as the promotion of homosexuality to minors breached European treaty rules…




    The report goes on to say that the Russians will appeal against this sleazy Strasbourg diktat, but surely they’d be better just to tell the sticky-beaks to shove it.

    Let’s be clear – the law is little different from the excellent Clause 28 which was on the UK statute book from Mrs’ Thatcher’s time until a pro-queer majority of parliamentarians repealed it under Bliar.

    The Russian law does not affect the ‘right’ of adult homos to bugger each other as often as they please…

    …, but simply protects children from proselytising in schools and other places where aberrants might think to recruit youngsters to their squalid life-style.

    But those foul clowns on the ECHR don’t even pay much heed to the youth protection aspect…



    …their obsessive decree being little more than cheer-leading for Brussels’ gaystapo.

    “…by adopting such laws, the authorities had reinforced stigma and prejudice and encouraged homophobia, which was incompatible with the values of a democratic society.”

    Abhorrence of sexual perversion is incompatible with the values of a democratic society?

    Europe used to be known as Christendom.

    But under the regime of the Euro-Commissars, it has seen the spread of intolerance…

    …whereby citizens with religious values, or even irreligious people who simply retain a taste for traditional decencies, get stomped, harassed, fined  and otherwise penalised for their beliefs.

    Good on ya, Russia, and let’s hope Putin stays the course in the fight against these un-elected creeps.

    British Thought Likely Doomed? Soviet Echoes in UK! 

    A somewhat sad article in the UK’s Telegraph, recounting how the ‘th‘ sound is likely to vanish from the English language in a generation or so.

    The “th” sound – also called the voiced dental nonsibliant fricative – is likely to change to be replaced an “f”, “d”, or “v” meaning “mother” will be pronounced “muvver” and “thick” will be voiced as “fick.” 



    Gambar terkait



    If I remember correctly, the abolition of  ‘th’ letter was one ‘reform’ quickly imposed on Russia when the Bolsheviks seized power in their 1917 coup.  Anything – like a softly aspirated consonant directly descended from the Greek ‘theta’  – that preserved refinement in the Cyrillic alphabet was clearly anathema to the Communist nation-killers.

    The impending change in the British Isles is not however driven by latter-day Red terror.



    It is is said to be yet another blight inflicted by multicult migration, importing aliens who find it beyond their abilities to assimilate to the linguistic standards of their host nation, just as many of them cannot adapt to civilised norms.

    Wot will da BBC make of dis?



    To be fair, I can remember how even in the 1960s there were BBC news readers inexplicably mispronouncing ‘India’ as ‘Indiar!

    And failing repeatedly to aspirate that W in ‘what.’

    Now I’ll sit back and let the experts assail my analysis.

      I went on a course to teach English before I came to South East Asia, Thailand and Indonesia and I had a lot of fights with the ‘pronunciation police’ in the institution where I studied, a language school in Hertfordshire.
      They insisted that ‘when’ should be pronounced ‘wen’ and I said no, and they produced big books to prove they were right and I was wrong.

      I looked into it and if you go back to books written on the subject before 1950, they mostly agree with me.

      So this wot-wen-wy change happened around the immediate post-war period.
      I have no idea why but I think it should be investigated.
      Incidentally, I grew up in Scotland where everybody pronounces ‘wh’ correctly. I read your blog enough to know you spent a lot of time there.

    Fourth Reich Rising? Merkel’s Phoney ‘Festung Europa!’ 

    A fine lazy Sunday gone, spent largely eating bacon, eggs and fried potatoes, in between reading and sleeping.

    Today heavy rain woke me, so up I got, turned on the tv to see what latest horrors have been inflicted on the world.



    Sure enough, Mama Stasi Merkel’s unappealing face was on the screen –  but the BBC switched quickly to give us some ‘informed’ comment on her outburst.



    Their choice?

    A snarling, snearing leftist academic in California, named Thomas Mann, who made good use of his five minutes to insult President Trump and diss Britain’s democratic Brexit decision.

    So what’s new?

    “Europe is the answer!”

    That from Martin Schulz, in an immediate echo of Merkel’s melodramatic shrilling on Sunday about how Europe has to forge its own path forward, as the United States and Britain were no longer reliable partners.



    Schulz added that “we cannot let ourselves be subjugated to Trump’s rearmament policy,” then likened the American President’s ‘presentation and attitude‘ to ‘that of a dictator.‘ Merkel: Europe can no longer rely on US and Britain

    Which is pretty rich, given his Socialist Party’s own distaste for democracy.


    Hitler’s SPD Heirs – ‘Media Must Gag Critics of Crimmigration!’ 

    In fact, of course, these two peas in a pod, pictured above, perhaps listening to ‘ancestral voices prophesying war,’ may be rivals for the job of Kanzler . or should we now redefine that as Fuhrer?… 



     BUT are not at all interested in the preservation of the historic nation-states of Europe.  

    Their Kulturkampf against Poland and Hungary, bent on bludgeoning those countries into a modern multicult model of Hitler’s Festung Europa, a supranational collective governed by Euro-Commissars in Brussels, has made that perfectly clear.



    Merkel created the migrant mess and she is diligently working with Juncker to extend its ruinous impact into countries guiltless of creating the misery and mayhem brought by the horde.

    But while cultural marxists are wicked, they are far from stupid. Merkel and Schulz alike read the polls, and are grubbing for the votes of those who’d welcome a re-play of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact, playing to the lowest common denominator, the appeasement mind-set among a large number of Germans.

    Fifty-three percent of Germans said their country should not honour the Nato treaty “if Russia got into a serious military conflict with one of its neighbouring countries that is our Nato ally…”  https://euobserver.com/foreign/138000.

    This alarming development may have many explanations ( and the sense of betrayal and desolation consequent to the crimmigrant tsunami may well be one) but the constant hectoring and menaces issued against Poland, in particular – Deutsche WelleMerkel’s Media Lap-Dog Snarls At Poland  – should be seen as a contributory factor.

    But what would their Festung Europa, without the ‘unreliable’ Anglo-Saxon powers, amount to?

    Liar Juncker blesses his servile acolyte Schulz


    Schulz’s very own words, quoted above, suffice to show us that any such ‘European Fortress’ under his command would not be burdened by any naughty nonsense about ‘re-armament.’

    And any Continental country that imagines they’d be in safe hands with Mama at the helm should be reminded that this is the same wretched woman who shrank even from the defence of her own nation’s sovereign borders when faced by alien invasion.

    Solidarity With Russia! 

    Sorry I produced nothing for the blog yesterday.

    I was out all day, going around town, North Jakarta in the morning, Senayan for lunch, up past Tanah Abang at tea-time and a great get-together with foreign and local friends in the evening.

    Home late, and now up today with little to do, so I atone for my sin of omission by expressing belated solidarity with Russia.


    Hasil gambar untuk solidarity with russia

    Young French patriots show solidarity with Russia after a previous Islamist attack,


    As in Paris and London and Berlin and Nice, we read about innocents slaughtered by a satanic beast who has apparently been killed along with his victims…



    …so that’s one more sectarian pig who will be burning in Hell’s hottest corner as we go about our everyday activities this sunny Wednesday morning. 

    If the atrocity in St. Petersburg is indeed another example of Islamist evil, I trust that President Putin will be more likely to hit back effectively, more than most Western leaders ever do.

    With the exception of the Berlin truck-pig and similar excellent responses by French cops, none of the perps has got what’s right and proper, a bullet where it matters.  

    • Firing squads or the guillotine, that’s how all our governments should be handling these terrorist scumbags .

    I certainly hope that if the Russia security forces close in on any of the cur’s collaborators, they will make short work of them.

    It’s important for all of us to say something about St. Petersburg, in view of the callous indifference among the Western elites towards Russia, which even CNN had to notice..


    As Russia mourns St. Petersburg attack, Europe shows little solidarity

     ..because, despite the tantrums of the Brussels clique, Russia is a country with which Europe and America can and should work against the common enemy. 

    • Clive Ottison 14:31 on April 5, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Common sense. Russia upholds values that Brussels is dead set on eradicating. Russia also has a huge enemy within because of all those Chechens and the like that they inherited from the Czars.
      It was Chechens that did the Boston marathon bombing and God knows who let those ‘refugees’ into America.

      At least Trump is trying to stop the rot even though those damn courts are working hard to harm our country. I wonder if the Dems and media are out to get Trump not just because he beat Clinton but because he might bring Russia and us into a better relationship and cooperate against the media’s Islamic pals.

      If they had let Trump get on with it, maybe Putin would not have decided he needed to cultivate the ayatollahs.
