3 December 2017. Day of the Unknown Soldier

________________________

Many thousands of Red Army men lie in unmarked graves. They gave their lives to rid the world of evil. That’s all that one has to say. I bow with respect to their podvig*. We owe our very lives and freedom to their sacrifice.

  • Podvig: Should NEVER be “Englished”… one of the most powerful words in the Russian language. There are literally no English equivalents strong enough. Podvig has overtones of “epic”, “heroic”, “bravery”, “self-sacrifice”, “victory”, “effort”, and “triumph”. It’s best to leave it as is, and admit that English lacks the necessary material to give meaning to this word.

3 December 2017. The Clintonistas are Going Apeshit Crazy… Some of Your “Friends” May Turn On You… Some May Go Along With the Hillarybots

_________________________

At present, the Clintonistas are going apeshit crazy over Russia. As all know, the Hillarybots march in unison lockstep… they make a Stalinist Party Congress look like a pre-US Civil War Congress session (where they spat in spittoons, chawed tobacky, carried derringers n’ daggers, drank corn likker straight from the jar, and beat each other with canes). Some of your FB Friends may have to stay in the good graces of these soulless pigs. Don’t allow Clintonista drivel on your wall (you can delete comments without unfriending someone). I don’t allow Trumpkin bullshit on my wall… I don’t allow Clintonista dribbling on my wall, either.

As for Russia… it’ll survive the Clintonistas and their lies, as it survived the Teutonic Knights, the Poles and their  Unia, the Swedes, Napoleon and all of Europe, and the fascists. The Clintonistas are lightweights in comparison. Take a hint from Baba… Russia WILL be free… no arrogant mud-ignorant Clintonista shit will ever dictate to a Russian (she lied to S V Lavrov and V I Churkin on Libya and on Syria… Russia knows her sleazy scum-ticket fuckwit tricks, so it knows not to trust her at all).

You can bet on Hillary or you can bet on Baba… I don’t think it’s rocket science…

2 December 2017. “Russian” ISN’T a Label On Your Jeans… Nor Does It Have Anything to Do With “Whiteness”

A Portrait of the Author L N Tolstoy

Ivan Kramskoi

1873

________________________

Being Russian doesn’t mean that one has a certain skin-colour, certain ethnic roots, or a certain hair-colour. Someone Russian in spirit is a person that won’t sleep peacefully if they know that injustice is being done somewhere. To be Russian means that a person will seek the truth until the end, always, and in every circumstance. Russians evaluate all that goes on in accord with their conscience; each has their own opinion on every matter that concerns them.

29 November 2017. Schema-Archimandrite Ilya Nozdrin in Very Poor Health

________________________

A friend of mine at the Centre just informed me that Schema-Archimandrite Ilya Nozdrin (the confessor to Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev) is in very poor health. If you could add him to your prayer rule, that’d be a good thing (especially, as this is a Lenten period). Fr Ilya is one of the few genuine startsy in the Church today (we don’t have any here in the American diaspora… the loud konvertsy claims of such are loud and clanging rubbish).

Pray for Fr Ilya’s health… we’re Christians! That’s what we do…
