    DW, Cowering From Red Reality? 

    I haven’t bashed DW for a while but on Friday, just before 2pm…

    …Jakarta time, their ‘Focus on Europe’ went to Kaliningrad.

    That’s the old German city of Königsberg, seized by the Red Army in 1945.

    Königsberg Castle, c. 1900, now long gone, according to DW.

    Many of its historic architectural glories have been devastated, not just by war but by Soviet vandalism.

    Its German population was mercilessly driven out and replaced by Russians.

    The DW presenter, Liz Shoo, began by telling us..

    Elizabeth Shoo

    ..that the programme dwelt on the effects of  ‘the collapse of the world’s largest socialist state!’

    Well now.

    Describing the USSR as ‘socialist’ is more than just a bit odd.

    The Reds liked to call it that – ‘Union of Soviet Socialist Republics’ – but nobody in the Free World ever did, except wannabe quislings like those in Britain…



    …the CPGB and its servile rag, the Morning Star.

    We normal folks called the Kremlin’s slave state COMMUNIST.



    Because it was, its various  peoples held in subjection by the Communist Party.

    So how come Liz Shoo got handed such a dissimulative script?

      DW is naturally not eager to be truthful.

    A Useful Reminder, How Worthless Pulitzers Are 

    It’s not every day we get a powerful reminder of the lack of both principle and professionalism to be found in the DNA of the liberal media.

    But the fresh discovery of human remains in Odessa, between 5,000 and 8,000 victims of Communist mass murder…


    Not only Ukraine – remember Katyn!


    ….should refresh our contempt for the slugs who run the Pulitzer pantomime, still dishing out ‘prizes’ to hacks  – and hackettes!

    On the other hand, if they take pride in their reporting, they should return the trophies, soiled as they are by the refusal of those who bestow them to acknowledge the truth…

    Fighting The First And Worst Fake-News Fiend! 

    Pulitzer-Winning Lies | The Weekly Standard

    . …that they handed that Pulitzer Prize to a lying, lickspittle New York Times leftist.

    Until they remedy their predecessors folly, no decent person should accept any honour from the cabal.

    And those who have already received Pulitzers?

    Hand them back!

    Or stage a public ceremony, involving dumping the things into a vat of pig-sh-t!


    Churning out Pulitzer Prizes;


    Duranty’s evil work for the NYT was NOT journalism but collaboration with Marxist evil.

    As last week reminds us, ‘hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians died during Joseph Stalin’s rule of the Soviet Union.’

    Brits! Don’t Let ‘Em Put UK Back In The (E)USSR! 

    It’s been a few years since we made mention of Vladimir Bukovsky’s insights into the similarities between the old USSR ( where he suffered persecution for his defiant commitment to democracy!) and the current supranational menace, the EUSSR.

    Former Soviet Dissident Warns Of EU Dictatorship



    Now it’s thanks to Andrew Allison’s Brexit At Noon briefing that our attention was drawn to this very good article by a British professor.

    Read, enjoy, then resume the independence struggle!

    Child 44 – A Brilliant Movie! 

    Every so often you pick up a dvd and find a gem.

    That’s what happened with ‘Child 44’ and I’m recommending it strongly. 



    Ever wonder what became of that Red Army soldier photographed atop the Reichstag in 1945?

    This British film, released in April this year, directed by Daniel Espinosa, purports to take up his tale once he’s back in Moscow, an honoured hero, of course…

    until he realises that Communism and justice go together like dung and peaches. Stalin’s USSR believes that ‘there is no such thing as murder in paradise,‘ an assertion somewhat hard to swallow given Stalin’s deliberate murder of millions, not least in the Holodomor, the red famine perpetrated on the Ukraine/

    But though the context is clear, it’s not a political film as such, but a great yarn – the good guy, Demidova ( Tom Hardy) won’t let up on his search for a serial killer, though it costs him dear.

    Reduced in rank and sent off to a backwater with his wife Raisa (Noomi Rapace) he enlists the support of his new commander (Gary Oldman)



    Despite the determined efforts of a particularly mean commie officer (Joel Kinnaman) in Moscow, Demidova presses on, and ultimately triumphs, to the extent any kind of justice can triumph in a marxist society.

    I haven’t enjoyed a movie as much for quite some time.

    Don’t know if it’s on in Jakarta, but for sure you’ll find a dvd somewhere.

    Kasihan Kobane! Erdogan…Echoes of Warsaw 1944? 

    Turkey – Or Cuckoo in the NATO Nest? 


    Watching the horrendous news today from the small city of Kobane in Syria, I could not help but think of Warsaw in 1944.


    The Polish Home Army rose up against the German Occupation.The Red Army had advanced to within sight of the Polish capital, so the brave Poles rose up to liberate their city, confident that Allied help would enable them to defeat Hitler’s forces.
    Instead, Stalin ordered his powerful forces to sit back and relax. The West was far away, air support rendered futile by the distance and by Moscow’s refusal to cooperate.
    The Poles were crushed. Churchill, to his credit, pleaded that they get the help they needed. but Roosevelt, as ever, would not confront the Soviets. who soon enslaved Poland, a long night. till Lech Walensa emerged in Gdansk and ultimately restored freedom to his country.


    I last week watched some newsreel from Kurdistan.


    • —————————-
    • The Kurds too, like those long-dead Polish warriors, are courageous. They also struck me as much more civilised than many of the peoples who live around them, their women fighting side-by-side with their menfolk, no squalid sexist nonsense such as afflicts so much of the Middle East.


     Islamist Erdogan


    Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why Erdogan’s sectarian regime is just sitting there, observing as the primitives triumph, Kurds fighting street-to-street, house-to-house, to prevent what sadly seems like an inevitable nightmare, the ISIS evil with its slaughter and slavery and rapine.  And Erdogan’s army is not only observing but has been obstructing Kurds who want to cross the border and take up the fight against evil.

    What rotten game is Ankara playing?  Something very like Stalin’s, methinks, seventy years ago. Ideology different in trappings but essentially one as oppressive and totalitarian as the other.

    Turkey’s ISIS Deal – Truth Will Out! And If One Air-Strike Pilot Is Downed? 


    And Obama’s air-strikes? Too little, too late. 

    All so similar to Warsaw, 1944.

      Your history is correct and so is your opinion on what is happening now. Just days ago, Turkey said it wouldn’t let Kobane fall. The Kurds agree with you, if this newspaper quote is true.

      Syrian Kurds, however, have scoffed at the rhetoric coming out of Ankara. They say that not only are the Turks not helping, they are actually hindering the defence of Kobani by preventing Kurdish militiamen in Turkey from crossing the border into the town to help in the fight.
      “We are besieged by Turkey, it is not something new,” said Ismet Sheikh Hassan, the Kurdish defence chief for the Kobani region.

      And it is true, because we know what ideology Erdogan follows.
