Donetsk Miners get Their Dander Up… Discontent Continues in the West

00 donetsk. miners. 31.07.14

______________________________

Statement from the Independent Donetsk Miners’ Trade Union

Brother miners,

We need to explain to you the true state of affairs in the Donbass. The European media has misinterpreted or hushed up the real picture of what’s happening. We understand that you might not find it easy to come to the correct conclusions; therefore, we declare that we… the miners… must fight with weapons in hand for the sake of our lives… in the name of survival!

Our sole interest in this confrontation is… end the bloodshed! The war will end when we hold a trial of the war criminals that began it. We can’t give up, because if we did, it’d mean our full moral and physical destruction! From the outset, the big bourgeoisie controlled the “Euromaidan”… the Ukrainian oligarchs and their foreign masters ran it. In February, there was a coup in the Ukraine, with active participation from neo-Nazi groups. In response to this, a protest movement arose in the South-East… at first, it only pushed innocuous slogans such as federalisation and Russian as a second state language. The putschists responded to this with terror.

There’s a real war In the Donbass; civilians die, including the elderly, women, and children. They blatantly lie to you when they tell you that this war is between the Ukraine and Russia. However, that isn’t so! The war is between the people and a handful of oligarchs supported by the EU and the American governments. The tragedy in the Ukraine is that those in power managed to infect some people with fascist ideas. We, the residents of the Donbass, fight against all manifestations of Nazism and Fascism. We fight with weapons in hand, for our lives and for the lives of our loved ones. We have nowhere to retreat… this is our land! We appeal to you, workers of Europe, asking for your help and solidarity… help us break the stranglehold of fascism in the Ukraine. This would be our common victory!

The 100th Anniversary of Talerhof’s Foundation… The OCA, ROCOR, ACROD, and MP/USA ALL are Silent… None Dare Call It Treason

00g Memorial to Talerhof. Hanging of the Martyrs

______________________________

The next two weekends are the 100th Anniversary of the foundation of the infamous Habsburg death camp at Talerhof; for obvious reasons, Podkarpatskaya Rus can’t mark it and commemorate its righteous martyrs and confessors… it’d make the UGKTs and the Uniate junta look very bad indeed. This genocide was much more than just the two death camps of Talerhof and Terezín. A planned mass operation swept Carpatho-Russia proper, the Lemkovshchina, and Bukovina. Thousands of Rusin people died at hands of the Austro-Germans, their Polish henchmen, and their Ukrainian Nationalist hangsmen.

All the same… the blood of the martyrs is the seed of future Church vigour… Holy Orthodoxy burst through the dark and resurrected in full bloom in post-World War I Carpatho-Russia. In North America, this stirring ferment helped to form what’s today’s OCA, MP/USA, and ACROD. Furthermore, much of the ROCOR wouldn’t exist without Holy Trinity Monastery and Seminary in Jordanville NY. Jordanville wouldn’t have existed without the resurrection of Orthodoxy in Carpatho-Russia and the then-dominant émigré Carpatho-Russian population in North America… they sacrificed so very much for it, didn’t they? We owe our forebears everything. To forget their travail and confession of Faith, to sidle up to their Uniate oppressors, to forget the testimony of our forebears’ blood to please Uniate apostates, is blasphemy… spitting in the face of Almighty God. Yet, there are soulless clergy and “important people” who do so. DON’T FOLLOW THEIR EVIL EXAMPLE. Follow the example set by our forebears, who preferred the Golgotha of Talerhof to bowing before the Unia and all of its scurvy works.

These next two weekends mark the anniversary of these events. Yet, there isn’t one official or formal commemoration of these events scheduled in the OCA, ROCOR, ACROD, or at Jordanville. The MP/USA IS holding a few small local commemorations.

HOW… VERY… SAD.

We forget the blood of the martyrs to please the enemies of the Church. God do spare us… Our Lord Christ said, Forgive them, for they know not what they do. I wish that I could say that of the pro-Uniate blasphemers, but the cold and chilling reality is that they DO know what they do. Jillions and Larina did it for money and a job… Potapov did it to please his political bosses… Paffso did it to feel important and to show how much of a “wheel” he was on K Street. Remember the blood shed… Никто не забыт и ничто не забыто. No one is forgotten, nothing is forgotten. If we don’t remember that, we aren’t worth a damn and God has every right to spew us out of his mouth. Ask your priest to serve Pannikhida for the Righteous Dead and Confessors of Talerhof and of the Habsburg Uniate Yoke… carry the icon of St Maksim Sandovich in procession… light a candle in memory of those killed by the Habsburgs, the White Poles, the OUN, the UPA, and the present fascist Uniate junta. DO NOT FORGET!

We’re Christians… that IS what we do…

31 July 2014. Kiss My Ass, George Weigel! The Church Should Punish Paffso and Potapov for Their Association with this POS Enemy of Christ’s Church

Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. I Reject Evil. 2012

We have a job of work ahead of us… not only must we take care of the traitors in our midst, we must repair the damage that they caused. I’m 60… I won’t see the end of such repair in my lifetime. However, we must start, and that’s the portion that God’s given to us. We can’t tolerate the likes of Potapov, Paffso, Larina, and Jillions… remember, they must go, and go soon, but we mustn’t hate. Then, Satan wins…

______________________________

Read this. I want to you to read it and read it TWICE! You heard me… it’s good to look at the other side… not that they’re right, mind you, but so that you can see for yourself what enemies lurk against us. Paffso is a particular pal of this POS ultramontane papist. You got it… Paffhausen is in bed with the Uniates, as they share his extremist rightwing political views. The same is true of Potapov, but Potapov’s a smoother piece of work (he’s a better liar and he has a more effective claque, too). Two more Uniate enablers are John Jillions and Vassa Larina.

However, although that’s true, I’m not overly concerned. Firstly, most priests in the ROCOR hate Potapov’s guts… as one told me, “I can deal with Lebedeff; he can admit that he’s wrong. On the other hand, Potapov is full of himself”. The fact that Potapov sold out for a mess of pottage in the Maryland burbs is known to everybody, and his association with the American intel apparat isn’t unknown or classified by the American government. However, he has more money than most of the bishops do and he has access to American government funds, so, he has inordinate weight. Secondly, Paffso is a flake, beloved only by other konvertsy flakes such as the HOOMies (he schmoozed with Nathanael Kapner on Pentecost, I saw it myself). For instance, the parish that Podmo’s funeral took place at was around since 1994 as a HOOMie conventicle (and it stopped growing at 50 people)… Paffso was pals with them in the past… but remember, he denied all his ties to HOOMies recently. Great guy, no? Do recall how Paffso LOVED the HOOMies and defended them from all comers… there ARE interesting stories about clerical abuse and hyperclericalism amongst them… and more than a few hints of other more serious abuse, too, I’ve heard. Jillions and Larina are easier to dispose of. Jillions was a lickspittle Step n’ Fetchit employee of the Uniates and hasn’t changed his spots… Larina has her university position as she sucked up to the phoney Jesuit “Archimandrite” Bob Taft; besides that, she purveys a spurious concept called “an Orthodoxy of Fear” (that is, all those who don’t agree with her infallible opinions and her obvious subservience to the Unia)… no one respects either of them, except for their First Family confederates (and pro-Uniate indifferentists).

Read it and heed it… this is what our enemies say… do note well that Weigel doesn’t condemn “A knife for the Moskali” nor does he go into the murderous history of the UGKTs… however, don’t go off on RCs just because this opinionated jackass is an asshole. Weigel’s being himself… did you expect otherwise? Yet, for Orthodox to associate with and approve of him, all for the sake of rightwing politics, now, that’s going too far. We have enemies… and some are in our ranks. Take care, the times ARE evil…

______________________________

A former Milwaukee-area priest accused of stealing from his church will stand trial. On Wednesday morning, Fr James Dokos was in facing charges of felony theft. Prosecutors say that he took more than 100,000 USD (3.56 million Roubles. 109,000 CAD. 107,500 AUD. 75,000 Euros. 59,000 UK Pounds) from Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Wauwatosa WI when he was priest there. If convicted, Dokos faces up to 10 years in prison. He’ll be back in court in September… when he’s expected to enter a plea.
