16 April 2014. A Point to Ponder this Holy Week…

00 Jesus was a radical.16

______________________________

Jesus wouldn’t have been welcome at Liberty University… Jesus wouldn’t have been welcome at the Washington Times or the Washington Examiner… Jesus wouldn’t have been welcome at the American Enterprise Institute. The New York Times, CNN, and Fox would’ve shunned him… Pat Robertson, Timothy Dolan, Paffhausen, and Franklin Graham would’ve denounced him… Serge Schmemann, Sophia Kishkovsky, and Rod Dreher would’ve ignored him. The Council on Foreign Relations would’ve laughed at him. The WCC would’ve “tolerated” him. The country club set would’ve told rude jokes about him. Certainly, he wouldn’t be on the guest list for Mary Lou Whitney’s next party and Langley would tail him “for national security reasons”.

Reflect on this when you hear unhinged righties try to tell you that Our Lord Christ would’ve approved of the anti-people ravening agenda of the Republican Party. They lie… Our Lord Himself said so when He was on earth. They didn’t tack him up to a cross for nothing…

16 April 2014. Gleanings from My Mailbag

What do you think of the resistance of heroic little Slavyansk? Sources tell me that real soldiers refused to move. The town’s name is proper, as one of the ways that you “read it” is “Hero Town”.

The Ukrainian patriots of Slavyansk will go down as heroes after this is all over and the dust settles. However, keep in mind that this isn’t an isolated incident. Patriots in Kramatorsk, Krasny Lyman, and Artomovsk pulled off similar actions. The Artomovsk patriots disarmed a junta military convoy without firing a shot on Saturday. Meanwhile, in Kharkov, Ukrainian patriots stormed the Gorsoviet building today and the police joined the anti-Maidan forces. If the putsch president Turchinov goes through with an attack on Monday morning, I don’t see how Russia can’t send in troops to protect the people, both Russian and Ukrainian, from these Nazis. Keep in mind, Turchinov would use “National Guard” troops, whose ranks are full of Western Ukrainian neo-Nazis. The regular army is utterly unreliable; it might even go over to the side of the patriots.

******

You’d be surprised at how much of my material comes from my Cabinet. Some are people who can’t post publicly under their own names (this is true of some priests). I know that some use me as a conduit at times… but that’s OK. I pity the poor people of Little Russia… they’ve suffered enough, haven’t they?

******

Judas! (In reference to Bartholomew Archontonis)

What else did you expect? He’s an American poodle… who wants to grab the Ukraine… and to join the papists (he did receive training in Rome, after all). It ain’t over yet.

******

They’re misreading the whole Russian/Ukrainian situation due to ignorance of Russian history. Firstly, VVP did much to restore many “Soviet” aspects of society. Indeed, at the Victory Day parade, they introduce him as “Comrade Supreme Commander”, and the whole ritual has its later Soviet tinge. Secondly, haven’t they heard VVP say, “The Eurasian Economic Community shall bring back all the best features of the USSR?” In short, dogmatism blinds them. Putin’s rule is a new NEP, which anyone familiar with Russian history can tell. In fact, Putin all but admitted that the future belongs to communism. That’s what keeps me out of formal membership in any Marxist group… their refusal to truly embrace the dialectic (and reality), and their stubborn insistence on trying to fit reality to their theories. I think that their hearts are right… their dogmatism sucks. I don’t say this in anger.

00 Crisis. 01 Odessa. We're not giraffe meat for the EU! .3

______________________________

When you posted that “We aren’t giraffe meat for the EU” sign in the protest picture it really warmed my heart. The senseless cruelty of those monsters in Denmark still bowls me over. Poor Marius! However, he did speak to the heartless EU from beyond his grave through that, no?

I feel so alone at times. I do. I think that the present crisis in the Ukraine is one of three great events that I’ve seen in my 60 years… first was Reagan’s election, which ushered in the present Dark Night… second was the August Events of ’91 that brought in the Second Time of Troubles… the third is the present situation, the world won’t be able to return to the status quo ante.

******

IT seems that all the kerfuffle in Kiev has a good side… whispers tell me that certain people are asking Potapov… “Whom do you favour, VOA or the Church?” This mess is opening up eyes. People are seeing that Western “conservatives” aren’t our friends. The Eurasian Union is a creative synthesis of the good in Russia’s past… that is, Imperial Russia and Soviet Russia… not “either or”… it’s “both or nothing”. When HH, V V Putin, and G A Zyuganov all sing from the same score, you know that it’s on the up and square! To think that we have the meddling Amerikantsy to thank for it! The Nasty 90s brought the Church and Party together… the recent events of the past six years (after the August war) brought the post-’91 Russian élite in as well. Do you think that the Blunder will finally see the light? Despite all the gloom, there appears to more than a little hope. I think that we’ve turned a corner and won a respite…

I agree with you. People now see that they must choose. Whose side IS Hilarion Alfeyev on… the Vatican or us? I know what he’ll choose; maturity is dawning on this naïf at the age of 47! The same goes for the ROCOR, AND the OCA, AND Constantinople. We all have to lay our cards on the table, no longer hedging our bets. Who’s with us and who’s against us? Decision time is here.

I don’t have complete faith in all the OCA… sadly enough. However, I’m pulling “back” on some criticisms… I was harsh for a while for a reason… someone has to “bell the cat”. Once the cat is “belled”, you can scale back… but not before. My Cabinet keeps me informed, and that’s how I keep up or lessen the pressure. I believe that I play a role in the Church “discussion”… my role is to bring up things that many won’t (or can’t) look at. However, although I think that most of the OCA shall come ’round, I’m not overly sure of SVS. A friend at the Centre told me that Mollard was “the right man for the moment… he’ll do nothing, but that’s what we need”. I now realise what she meant… and I think that you do too!

******

Rose impressed me once, too… we all were. He APPEARED so holy. Today, I’d say, “A long beard a monk does NOT make”. I think that you know what I mean…

******

Note how they attack artificial birth control. In general, they abhor moderation of any sort. They’re fanatics… very much. They won’t listen to sensible people like HH, Charlie, or Vladimir Romanovich. What’ll they do when the Reds return and the Church and Reds embrace as one? That’s what VVP sees… that’s what HH sees… isn’t that how God works, after all? God doesn’t DESTROY his enemies in a Crusade; He loves them so much that they change of their own accord if their heart’s right. It puts the Nasty 90s in a new light, doesn’t it? Who woulda thunk it… the Reds repented and God blessed them… the Whites refused and died the death (I mean the White attitude, NOT White Russians or the White legacy)… God DOES work in mysterious ways, doesn’t He?

******

Do you think that they’re abandoning unhealthy “generic” Orthodoxy for REAL Russian Orthodoxy? I’ve nothing against Greeks, Serbs, Romanians, et al (they ARE part of our Orthosphere, after all), but Russian Orthodoxy is a specific family… we must treat it as such.

They aren’t opposed to the real Russia that respects the Imperial legacy, triumphed under the USSR, and now is building a new state containing the best of both. They aren’t opposed, but they’re a bit slow to get it. This sodomic rape of the “real” all-Russian Ideal by their US Conservative “friends” was a revelation.

******

The situation in the Ukraine is surreal… just when you think that it can’t get any odder… it does. On Fatso… the intel is all over the map, I’m discounting ALL of it until an official announcement comes out. We DO have the word on Soraich, but a friend of mine at the Centre a month ago told me it was a done deal. NO ONE at the Centre knows anything about Fats… NO ONE. What doesn’t help is that Fatso still schmoozes with neocons in full sight of the Russian Embassy! Crazy world… do pass the jug… it’s gonna get even crazier.

Same thing here, just no reliable news about Fatso… if all you have is Momomuckos and rumours, you don’t have anything.

I think that’s the Centre’s way of saying “NO”… after all, Soraich is no prize. How DO you “demote” a former First Hierarch (for that is what he was)?

Medvedev Fears Civil War in the Ukraine… McCain Rattles His Rusty Sabre… Thousands of Ukrainian Servicemembers Rallied to the Russian Colours

00 Slavyansk 01. 15.04.14

Patriot barricade in Free Slavyansk… the junta scummers still haven’t taken it

______________________________

On Tuesday, Chairman of the Government Dmitri Medvedev wrote on his Facebook page that renewed bloodshed in the Ukraine presaged a civil war, saying, “This is very regrettable, the cause of Ukrainian tragedy is that the legitimate authorities didn’t even try to preserve law and order in the regions of the country when takeovers of administrative buildings started. That’s why no one respected those authorities. Now, on the contrary, illegitimate forces attempt to restore order, which they destroyed themselves, as they rose to power through an armed coup. They fell into their own trap. The action triggered counteraction. An offense against the state (the coup in Kiev) led to popular protests in the regions. It was a chain reaction of events, both political and economic. Today, many people understand the true intentions of those who seized power in Kiev. It means that the path to a just society is clear; the people should independently choose their destiny. They should have the means of expressing their will by legal means and to take part in forming a contemporary Ukrainian state with equality for all nationalities and languages. They should do this independently, without interference from usurpers, nationalists, and criminals… without tanks and armoured vehicles… and without secret visits from CIA chiefs”.

******

Speaking before the Rada, junta chieftain Aleksandr Turchinov claimed, “An anti-terrorist (sic) operation began this morning, in northern Donetsk Oblast, we’ll carry it out responsibly and carefully. The goal of this special operation is to protect people (!?). We must take decisive action in the Donbass during this operation, as we face a threatening and colossal danger, but we must keep it balanced and responsible. Most of the eastern Ukraine, in spite of everything, demonstrates stability, which is due to the current government’s abilities”.

Editor:

There was no military action in Donetsk Oblast yet… NONE. Turchinov is lying… but to whom? The Russians know better… the patriots in the east know better… even the Americans know better. However, the Western media machine picks up and disseminates the junta’s lies. If you believe a word of it, on either CNN or Fox, you’re clueless and stupid.

BMD

******

US Senator John McCain (R-AZ), who is now on a visit to Estonia, spoke live on one of the local TV channels, “We should give weapons to the Ukraine so that it could defend itself”. McCain, the Republican presidential candidate in the 2008 election, believes that Russia threatens its neighbour, “Russia provokes the West by staging actions in the Ukraine’s East. Maybe, it wants to increase its influence on the South as well”.

Editor:

John McCain was so stupid that if he weren’t an admiral’s son and grandson, he would’ve flunked out of Annapolis (he graduated near the bottom of his class). The US Navy refused to promote him to flag rank due to his proven recklessness and imprudence. Most probably, his juvenile carelessness and disregard for good sense led to his shootdown… ever since, he’s blamed Russia for that and his injuries. In short, McCain’s a brave but eminently foolish man… you should weigh any and all of his comments in that light.

******

On Tuesday, Aleksandr Ankvab, the President of Abkhazia, said at a news conference with Russian journalists in Sukhumi, the capital of Abkhazia, “We see with our own eyes that the country’s collapsing and that nationalist radicals are running the show. This is an illustrative lesson for everyone. I approve the recent territorial reunification of Crimea with Russia; this was fair from any point of view. A temporarily lost but integral part of Russia returned home”. The Ukrainian junta and the West claim that the all-Crimean referendum was illegal and refuse to recognise the Crimea as part of Russia, although Moscow repeatedly stated that the referendum complied with international law and the UN Charter, and was in line with the precedent set by Kosovo’s secession from Serbia in 2008.

******

On Monday, the MVDU official website reported, “Interior Minister (sic) (Arseny Avakov) decided to create special units to maintain public order”. The post gave telephone numbers for information in Donetsk, Nikolayev, Dnepropetrovsk, Lugansk, Odessa, Kharkov, and Kherson Oblasts, but gave no numbers for other entities. The headquarters also gave an e-mail address where all prospective applicants could send résumés; however, it didn’t publicise what criteria it’d use to select members of these units. The post, dated 13 April, said that they’d raise the first special units in the east and south, then, in the central and western regions, saying, “The MVDU wants to attract more than 12,000 people from across the country to the new special units. We’d provide weapons, kit, and command personnel”. In addition, Avakov ordered establishing the “Vostok” special unit in Lugansk Oblast.

Fascist elements in Kiev… THIS is what America supports… and John McCain cackles his approval!

On Tuesday, First Deputy Defence Minister Arkady Bakhin said at a video conference at the situation centre of the Minoborony Rossii, “We employed 9,268 former personnel of the Ukrainian armed forces in uniformed positions in the Russian armed forces on a contract basis. All of them received Russian citizenship and all have already received Russian passports. Following instructions issued by Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu of 3 April 2014, we’ve organised refresher training for all former Ukrainian officers now in Russian service; starting on 13 May, they’ll receive upgraded professional training in their military specialties at Minoborony educational establishments. In most cases, the officers involved will have a year of retraining. In addition, units of the Black Sea Fleet now employ 7,050 former civilian personnel of the Ukrainian armed forces. Drills to upgrade the qualifications of former Ukrainian servicemembers have begun at the Nakhimov Naval School in Sevastopol. The main goal of the drills is to ensure adaptation of former Ukrainian personnel to the norms of the Russian armed forces and to teach them the operational, combat, and technical and mobilisation doctrine of the Russian armed forces”.

Editor:

Thousands of Ukrainian servicemembers rallied to the Russian colours. NOT ONE RUSSIAN defected to the Ukrainians. NOT ONE. Draw your own conclusions. The junta isn’t long for this world.

On Tuesday, around two dozen demonstrators at the Rada building attempted to break in; they demanded that so-called “Interior Minister” Arseny Avakov resign. Some stipulated that all security functions go to First Vice-Premier Vitaly Yarema. Euromaidan roughnecks guarding the Rada building rebuffed the assault, preventing anyone from going in. Right Sector and Nastup (Offensive) extremists, who’d earlier demanded Avakov’s resignation, were presumably amongst those who attempted to break into the building.

Editor:

Yarema is a brutal and vicious scumbag who headed the MVDU under Yushchenko; he aided the American extraordinary rendition programme in the Bush years. That is, he’s a known torturer and bully. He’s one of Yuliya’s most unsavoury confederates.

BMD

******

Deputy Defence Minister Anatoly Antonov said that the Minoborony suspended handover of armaments and military hardware to the Ukraine from the Crimea to prevent munitions and equipment from being used against civilians, saying, “I’d like to point up that Russia complies with its international obligations under the Paris Charter, the Helsinki Act, and UN and OSCE resolutions… we’ve pledged to avoid supplying and display restraint on arms supplies to hot spots. The term ‘hot spot’ is a very proper description of the current situation in the eastern and southeastern Ukraine”. So far, Russia returned to the Ukraine 389 pieces of military equipment, including eight helicopters and three naval vessels.

******

On Tuesday, the Kremlin press service said that President Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Putin, noting, “Putin and Ban Ki-moon discussed the crisis in the Ukraine, aggravated after military operations initiated by the Kiev ‘authorities’ in the southeast. Putin emphasised that the Russian side expected the UN and the international community to clearly denounce these anti-constitutional actions”.

15 April 2014. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words… Priest Blesses Patriot Opolchenie in Slavyansk

00 slavyansk. priest. 15.04.14

______________________________

Here’s the real deal. A priest in Slavyansk blessed the patriot Opolchenie fighters defending the town against pro-American junta forces and American mercenary filth. It’s much like in 1612… the Church blessed the fighters defending the Orthodox motherland from foreign and heretical invaders then… and it blesses them today. Don’t listen to Langley and papist lies that the Orthodox in the Ukraine support the junta and their ravening greed. They do NOT… as this image testifies. It’s simple… the junta stands for American-style Individualist Libertarian heartlessness and money-worship… the patriot Opolchenie stand tall for Holy Rus and its communal traditions. Of course, the Church blesses the latter and curses the former.

The Ukraine can’t return to the status quo ante of 21 February… the American-fomented putsch saw to that. No one knows what the final outcome shall be, but it’s clear that if there is a Ukraine, it shall not be within the 21 February borders. The Galicians overplayed their hand… it sickened most of the other people. The only question now is how much of the “Ukraine” will voluntarily join Russia. Ponder this… Russia will NEVER allow the gas pipelines to fall into American hands… NEVER. The USA lacks the means to defend them… as does the junta. Figure it out for yourself.
