1November 2014. From the Russian Web… As It Was, As It Is, As It Ever Shall Be!

00 Tsar Nikolai Pavlovich. 01.11.14

______________________________

When I saw something like the above on the Russian web, I knew that I had to “English” it and bring it to you. Thanks to Google Image Search and PhotoShop, I was able to recreate what I saw. This IS truth…

The “Ukraine” is a legal fiction that doesn’t reflect reality. Great Russia is an undoubted reality… as is Malorossiya, Novorossiya, the Lvovshchina, Belarus, and Podkarpatskaya Rus. All of them (and more) make up Holy Rus.. which isn’t “Russian”… which isn’t “Ukrainian”… which isn’t “Byelorussian”… which isn’t “Rusin”… it’s all of them… it’s a unity that’s greater than the sum of its parts. No… Great Russians aren’t the “dictators” of Holy Rus… we’re merely the largest group within it (which is something else entirely). All of us have something to bring to the table… each party has an indispensable piece of the puzzle. There are no “low Russians” nor “high Russians”… those who think in such terms miss the entire point of it all. There is one Orthodoxy that shines forth in myriad ways… that’s something that we Great Russians must acknowledge. There is one Orthodoxy that shines through all the differences… that’s something that the Little Russians and Rusins must acknowledge. That is, we’ll have unity, both religious and secular, when we understand that the only path to it is mutual humility. Shall we realise it? That’s up to you…

As it was, as it is, as it ever shall be!

28 October 2014. THIS is the “Weak Russia” that the Anglo Americans and their Uniate “Amen Corner” Rant About… I Think NOT!

00 Park Pobedy. Poklonnaya Gora. Moscow. 28.10.14

______________________________

This is Park Pobedy (Victory Park) on Poklonnaya Gora (Reverence Hill) commemorating the Great Victory over Fascist Germany in the VOV. It sure doesn’t look cheap or second-rate to me! I guess that the Anglo Americans (and their Uniate and lickspittle Russian Orthodox amen corners) aren’t looking at the same country that I am! By the way, they set up the Ramadan Tent at the Park every year… HH and V A Chaplin (amongst a host of others) were honoured guests there of the Russian Muslim people. Our leaders do NOT espouse hate of Islam and Muslims the way the neocons do. NO SIR! We even stand behind the Iranians (Mom! Get the smelling salts… Whiteford and Dreher just fainted).

As you can see from this image, Russia isn’t a minor country. Why would you trust the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Jen Psaki, Bill O’Reilly, and Marie Harf anyway? What DO they know about the Rodina? Less than you do, dear reader! Keep it focused and keep it strong. We spring from a mighty and ancient civilisation… one that had been Christian for 788 years BEFORE the American Declaration of Independence. Fancy that…

America is “a City on a Hill?”. I think NOT…

26 October 2014. Vox Pop on Podkarpatskaya

00 carpatho-russian. 06.08.14

______________________________

Carpatho-Russians are a unique and distinct people… very different from all other Russians, yet, carrying the essence of Holy Rus perhaps better, and more authentically than all the others do. Our language is the closest to Church Slavonic. Our cuisine is in many ways more in line with New Rome (Byzantine Empire) (spices, flavours, etc). Our dance is Balkan. Our Faith is a distinct but solidly established strain of Russian Orthodoxy. No one else can absorb us. It’s impossible. We are what we are. “Da živet Karpatskaja-Rus!”/”Carpatho-Russia LIVES!” THIS is what we say. A Carpatho-Russian knows another Carpatho-Russian a mile away. If we’re too small to be a nation, we’re something better… a tribe… or better yet, a family. We’ll endure, survive, and thrive. We WILL accuse our many cruel persecutors on the Last Day.

******

I have nothing to add, not being “of the tribe”. THIS is why I treasure the Rusin people so and stick up for them at every juncture. “Rusins lived… Rusins live… Rusins will live”… ‘nuff said…

24 October 2014. Something to Think About… Shouldn’t We Be One?

00 OCA family. 19.05.14

______________________________

Here is a picture of one of our Russian Orthodox clergy families. I really think that we Russian Orthodox people here in the English-speaking diaspora have to have a serious discussion about Church Unity. Before we can reach out to anyone else, we have to solve our own internal disunity and intramural problems first. There’s no such thing as “American Orthodox”, and you don’t have to be “Russian” to be “Russian Orthodox”. We’re a social and sociological whole… we should unite, the way the Antiochians did.

Let’s start the discussion… that’s the first step on the road, isn’t it? That they may be as one… that’s what Our Lord Christ wanted… and the best way to start it is to unite all the Russian Orthodox first. That’s my thought, any road…
