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…

30 July 2014. Why Did Yustinian Get Exiled (Again) to Kalmykiya?

00 a whisper in the loggia. 08.12

______________________________

Got this whisper from one  of the usuals:

Financially, the 97th Street cathedral is a mess, expensive repairs done just a few years ago need to be done again, cash flow isn’t well monitored. I heard that Justinian “approached” one too many guys, some of whom seem willing to talk about it.

That’s what’s “out there”… I won’t say yea or nay, but I will say that I’ve heard much the same from others, too. In other words, that’s the buzz; it sure does explain why the Centre moved (and moved rather quickly). Merkury Ivanov got a promotion when he left New York… he got a white hat, and he got to be at the Centre. Yustinian fucked up so badly that he only got a consolation prize (it smells like a “last chance” assignment to me)… if he doesn’t watch out, he’ll get sent to the Far North or to Central Asia. Kalmykiya is a Buddhist region… so, the bishop there is the leader of a minority. Oh… Yustinian and Fatso were great pals… if shitbirds of a feather flock together (and don’t forget that Podmo was Fatso’s guru)… I think that you know where I’m going.

However, the takeaway for us is that the Centre didn’t fart around in cutting off a potential problem… and they posted their decision on the official website on the very day that they made it. The OCA and the ROCOR could learn from that, couldn’t they?

This is an Oldie n’ Goodie… “Ukrainianism”… an Old School Metropolia Definition

00 Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. Talerhof. They all had faces... 2012

Editor:

I don’t have either a URL or a title for the book that this came from. It’s from one of the Cabinet, and I thank them heartily for this. If you suck up to Uniates, you spit on the legacy the original immigrants fought for… full stop. The Uniates are the enemies of the Church, whether they realise it or not. The Unia is the Roman Curia’s Trojan Horse against Orthodoxy. We forget that at our peril. It’s time to “go back to the future”…

“Ukrainianism” is a senseless political invention imposed on the Little Russians of Galicia by the Austro-Polish-German politicians in cooperation with Archbishop Sheptitsky, the Metropolitan of the Uniate Church in Galicia. The German government of Galicia, seeing that the Galician Russians, in their national and cultural aspects, form one whole with the Russian people in Russia, took fright and began to have recourse to crafty “divide et impera” (divide and rule) and to violence, so that they might separate Galician Russians from Russian people in Russia, so that it might be easier to denationalise them. They forbade Galician Russians to call themselves Russians. Following Roman papist politicians, they imposed not only “Ruthenianism” upon them, but also “Ukrainianism”.

During the Austrian national census, they counted the Russian population in official statistics as “Ruthenians” and “Ukrainians”, they arrested and threw into prison anyone protested this official chicanery. Furthermore, they forbade the Russian population to learn the formal Russian literary language. The authorities fostered “Ukrainianism” for two purposes:

  1. To detach Little Russians outside of Russia from Russians in Russia
  2. To create through them a “Republic of Ukraina” from Russian Little Russia, composed of southern and southwestern Russian provinces, thus, weakening the Great Russian Empire both politically and Nationally

To make this “divide et impera” feasible amongst Galician Little Russians, Metropolitan Sheptitsky turned his ecclesiastical seminaries into political camps where he would Jesuitise all future clerics, to instruct them in the science of political propaganda, to spread “Ukrainianism” amongst Galician Little Russians. With particular cruelty, the Austrian rulers persecuted those Russians in Galicia who dedicated themselves totally to their nation and people, those who had exceptional respect, attention, and love from the ordinary people. The Austrians lodged many charges of treason against leading Galician Russians. For instance:

  1. The trial of Priest Ivan Naumovich and his colleagues in Lvov in 1882
  2. The trial of Kabalyuk and 94 peasants in Máramarossziget (Marmaroschsiget) in Carpatho-Russia in 1913
  3. The trial of the Gerovsky brothers (and here) in Czernowitz (Chernovtsy) in Bukovina in 1913
  4. The trial of Priests Sandovich and Gudima, along with the teachers Bendasyuk and Koldra in 1913

These are only episodes in the unequal battle for freedom carried on by the Russian people of Carpatho-Russia against their oppressors.

The Austrians subjected the Carpatho-Russian people to cruel persecutions, not only for their political aspirations, but also for their religious convictions. The Austrian authorities sentenced Carpatho-Russian peasants to many years of imprisonment (i.e. in Máramarossziget (Marmaroschsiget)), just because they didn’t want to be in Union with the Pope of Rome. In Galicia, the Austrian officials closed an Orthodox chapel, placing a placard on it forbidding anyone to enter. They claimed that it was because of contagious disease, which, of course, was untrue.

If the condition of the Russian people in enslaved Galician Russia was unbearable in peacetime, how dreadful were they at the beginning of the last war {World War I: editor}? As soon as Austria-Hungary declared war on Russia, they arrested more than 30,000 Russian people in Galicia, Bukovina, and Hungary, Austrian police and soldiers massacred them and subjected them to indescribable torture, throwing them into prison camps in Talerhof, Terezín (Theresienstadt), Kufstein, Spielberg, Arad, Vienna, Linz, etc. in Talerhof alone, in the course of a few weeks, more than 1,500 Russians died from beatings, disease, and hunger. The Austrians placed the survivors on trial. Although all of them were innocent according to both man’s law and God’s Law, the Austrian courts found them guilty, just because they were of the Russian nationality. The Austrians shot many of them (the first being the Rev Maksim Sandovich), putting them to death. During the first nine months of the Great War, the Germans and Magyars shot and hanged 20,000 people in Galicia, Bukovina, and Carpatho-Russia.

Editor:

If you’re in the OCA and you support the junta pigs (or you claim to be neutral), you spit on the podvig of your great-grandparents. They died precisely because they confessed Orthodoxy and they confessed their Russian nationality. You shouldn’t listen to konvertsy fools like Hatfield, you shouldn’t listen to semi-Uniates like Dahulich and Jillions, nor should you listen to sellouts like Lyonyo Kishkovsky and Thomas Hopko. The old ways ARE the good ways… that’s what Orthodoxy is all about. Mistrust all clergy who wear “Greek” vestments in the Uniate style… they not only spit on our God-blessed traditions, they spit on the confession of Holy Orthodoxy that their forebears fought and died for. Don’t forget… the Jesuits at Fordham educated Dahulich (coincidentally, he’s the biggest advocate of spitting on our traditions and adopting Uniate ways)… fancy that. So was Hopko, for that matter. Jillions worked for the Uniates… do you see a pattern here? You may follow the fearless confession of Ss Maksim Sandovich and Aleksei Kabalyuk, Blessed Gavriil Kostelnik, and Fr Mikhail Shuvar… or you may follow the spineless surrender to the Unia of Hopko, Lyonyo, Jillions, and Dahulich… it’s up to you.
