8 August 2011. Let’s STAND UP for what’s Right! Please, DO Read the Link…

THIS is the God of the Tea Party and the New GOP… Almighty Mammon the Great… don’t be fooled by their cries of “Jayzuss”… they’re about as Christian as Anders Breivik was… that is, not much…

Here are the guts of it all:

“I know you’re scared and angry. Many of you have lost your jobs, your homes, and your hope. This was a disaster, but it wasn’t a natural disaster. It was made by Wall Street gamblers who speculated with your lives and futures. It was made by conservative extremists who told us that if we just eliminated regulations and rewarded greed and recklessness, it would all work out. However, it didn’t work out. Moreover, it didn’t work out 80 years ago, when the same people sold our grandparents the same bill of goods, with the same results. Nevertheless, we learned something from our grandparents about how to fix it, and we’ll draw on their wisdom. We’ll restore business confidence the old-fashioned way… by putting money back in the pockets of working Americans by putting them back to work, and by restoring integrity to our financial markets and demanding it of those who want to run them. I can’t promise that we won’t make mistakes along the way. But I can promise you that they’ll be honest mistakes and that your government has your back again”.

A story isn’t a policy. However, that simple narrative… and the policies that would naturally have flowed from it… would have inoculated against much of what was to come in the intervening two-and-a-half years of failed government, idled factories, and idled hands. That story would’ve made clear that the president understood that the American people had given Democrats the presidency and majorities in both houses of Congress to fix the mess the Republicans and Wall Street had made of the country, and that this wouldn’t be a power-sharing arrangement. It would’ve made clear that the problem wasn’t tax-and-spend liberalism or the deficit… a deficit that didn’t exist until George W Bush gave nearly 2 trillion dollars (58 trillion Roubles. 1.4 trillion Euros. 1.2 trillion UK Pounds) in tax breaks largely to the wealthiest Americans and squandered 1 trillion dollars (29 trillion Roubles. 700 billion Euros. 600 billion UK Pounds) in two wars. Perhaps, most important, it would’ve offered a clear, compelling alternative to the dominant narrative of the right; our problem isn’t due to spending on things like the pensions of fire-fighters, but to the fact that those who can afford to buy influence are rewriting the rules so they can cut themselves progressively larger slices of the American pie while paying less of their fair share for it.

However, there was no story… and there’s been none since. In similar circumstances, Franklin D Roosevelt offered Americans a promise to use the power of his office to make their lives better and to keep trying until he got it right. Beginning in his first inaugural address, and in the fireside chats that followed, he explained how the crash had happened, and he minced no words about those who had caused it. He promised to do something no president had done before… to use the resources of the United States to put Americans directly to work, building the infrastructure we still rely on today. He swore to keep the people who had caused the crisis out of the halls of power, and he made good on that promise. In a 1936 speech at Madison Square Garden, he thundered, “Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me… and I welcome their hatred”.

******

There it is in a nutshell. One of the reasons that we’re in the straits that we’re in today is that Barack Obama is trying to be kind to those who have no other desire but to slice off his balls. He’s trying to conciliate the irreconcilable. Look, these people are greedy and grasping nutters, that’s all there is to say. They want to gut social welfare programmes to enrich the affluent, and that’s that. They want a world were everyone is the Step n’ Fetchit of the Five Percenters. In short, they want a plutocratic dictatorship based on Ayn Rand’s perverse philosophy… a dictatorship that would make the solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short life available to one under the state of Hobbes’ Leviathan look positively alluring. Ponder this… most of those who follow this perverse credo also claim that they have “a personal relationship with Jayzuss” (an aside to my Orthodox readers… good examples would be phonies like Jonas Paffhausen, Terrence Mattingly, and Rod Dreher). THAT tells you much about American religiosity. You don’t honour God by kicking the unemployed full-force in the face! That’s all that there’s to say on the matter. We can fight for what’s right, or, we can bow down before Satan and worship naked greed… that’s the alternative. What do you want? I know what I want… and it’s not THAT!

Bear Murdered Because of British Student

The British NATO contingent wastes up to 100,000 USD (2.9 million Roubles. 70,000 Euros. 61,000 UK Pounds) of their taxpayers’ money per aircraft per hour, every single day since 17 February, by bombing kids, strafing water supplies, murdering babies, and targeting civilian structures in Libya. Now, in Norway, they shot a polar bear because of a British student. The bear’s name, let’s say, was Mor (Mother). It spent months nurturing its cub, rooting for food in an environment that was getting more and more hostile. Fewer seals, more intrusion from Mankind… and, like any good animal, the further away from this species, the better. Also, like any good animal, the warier of this species, the better. Therefore, when this species gets too close, and intrudes too far into the realm of the polar bear, what’s it supposed to do? The tragedy that struck the family of young Horatio Chapple today, mauled to death in his tent outside his environment and inside that of the bear, is the same tragedy that strikes Libyan families every day as British cowards sitting in aircraft 30,000 feet (9,145 metres) up in the sky murder their children. Four other British tourists were hospitalised in the bear attack. The police were alerted, and, unfortunately, the bear was destroyed. After all, it was only in its own habitat (Svalbard Islands, Norway). As the British press carries this story in its headlines, maybe, some of these callous bastards could spare a fleeting thought for the Libyan children slaughtered in their homes by NATO cowards. On the other hand, one suspects they couldn’t care less.

Patriarch Kirill Underwent Tests at the TsKB and was Discharged

Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias (1946- )

______________________________

Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias is undergoing tests at the Central Clinical Hospital in Moscow. “His Holiness is undergoing tests due to his recent viral infection. He’s all right. His doctors said that his condition’s normal”, Archpriest Vladimir Vigilyansky, the head of the Patriarchal Press Service, told our Interfax-Religion correspondent. Yesterday, the official MP website reported that the Patriarch elevated Archbishop Vikenty Morar of Tashkent and Uzbekistan to the rank of First Hierarch of the Metropolitan District of Central Asia. Earlier, the Patriarchal Press Service reported that Patriarch Kirill suffered a severe viral infection after his recent visit to the Ukraine, and his doctors advised him to cancel planned trips to Kronshtadt and Diveyevo.

******

On Saturday night, Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias returned to his residence outside Moscow in Peredelkino after undergoing tests at the Central Clinical Hospital. ”His doctors assessed his general condition as satisfactory, they recommended that the Patriarch should temporarily limit his workload, after his stay in hospital”, the Patriarchal Press Service reported. On Sunday morning, the Patriarch attended liturgy at his Peredelkino chapel (dedicated to the Mother of God “Quick to Hear”). Schema-Archimandrite Ily Nozdrin served the liturgy and presented prayers for the health of the His Holiness. At the liturgy, the nuns who work at the official residence of the Patriarch sang the responses.

Editor’s Note:

THIS is how you do it, kids… you issue a terse release stating where someone is, why they’re there, and what their condition is. That’s simple. That’s all the OCA had to do. They didn’t do it… if that isn’t proof that the present set of bozos is fit for nothing but the shit-can, nothing is. The whole lot of ‘em is crank… Bobby, JP, BP, Brum, Eliel, Behr, Lyonyo, and all the rest of their scurvy hangers-on. They’ve been an albatross around the Church’s neck for forty years.

It’s time to go home… as this shows, the Mother Church knows how to attend to small matters as well as the big ones… we don’t. It’s quite that simple…

8 August 2011. Mark Bleats… Refuses to Defend Himself in Public

Mark’s a scaredy-cat afraid of his own shadow… he won’t come out and defend himself against the bullying swine Webster. If someone did that to me, I’d raise a rumpus! Maybe, I’d be beaten, but I wouldn’t go quietly. I’m not a coward… what does that tell you about Mark?

______________________________

Read this:

http://ocanews.org/news/ZacchaeusMisinformation8.8.11.html

Of all the Russian sources quoted, all appeared on my site first. Mark’s home area in Ohio has an inordinate number of hits recorded… Quantcast is good at that sort of thing. Also, note that Mark NEVER gives you URLs for trackback purposes. All of my posts based on outside sources have trackbacks… you can check my citations. Mark doesn’t do this, which is unprofessional and cheesy. Oh, one final dig before we go into the meat of this wayward post… Mark stupidly puts a “cross” in front of bishops’ names. What a maroon! Legit Russian sources NEVER do that, and no one in the OCA did it prior to the reception of the godless HOOMie filth. No grounded individual EVER does such except in the rare instance of an official post that uses it to symbolise a signature… that’s the only permissible usage… that’s all folks! To use it in other places is a hypercorrect (and dumb-as-dirt) error on the part of hubristic toddlers with soiled nappies stinkin’ to high heaven.

Mark gets a great deal of his information from zapadniki websites in Russia… to say the least, they’re not very good at all. For instance, Portal-Credo.ru gives a forum to such schismatics/heretics as Valentin Rusantsov, Georgi Kochetkov, and Filaret Denisenko. No grounded Russian source linked Dickie to the SVR… but quite a few link him to the American special services. Considering that Potapov and Lyonyo have attested links to American special services circles, Mark’s trying to divert your attention (primarily, from his sponsor, Lyonyo, who’s a known member of the CFR). My guess is that the FSB caught Dickie in some squiffy doings… probably, after Fr Tikhon Shevkunov went to them with misgivings about this little weasel. As for Dickie posting anti-OCA material on Pravmir.com, that’s a laugh! He’s posted nothing but vacuous pro-OCA drivel (mostly by konvertsy poseurs) on that site, so much so that the site’s bloody near useless in my estimation (I mean the English-language Pramir.com, not the Russian-language Pravmir.ru, which is still solid). By the way, Mark claimed that “He had his gallbladder removed before and now the decease [sic] exacerbated”, was a quote from Interfax-Religion… I can attest that it was NOT in the Russian original that I consulted and translated. Either this means that Mark didn’t actually consult the original Interfax post and relied on hearsay, or that he failed to check the original after viewing a typically-bad Interfax “Englishing” of an article. Either one is culpable laziness on his part (on Interfax, or any other Russian site, the Russian original is normative, full stop).

Dickie’s lawyer is Vlad Berzansky Jr, the son of Fr Vladimir Berzonsky, who’s an old pal of Lyonyo’s and an old foe of Herman the Vermin (VB opposed Hermie’s ordination to the episcopate in ’73, that’s how far back the feud goes). That’s to say, it’s part of a longstanding general war, with Bobby and his pals on one side, and Lyonyo and his bunch on the other. Apparently, JP’s jumped on Bobby’s side… for now. Do note El Gordo’s failure to incardinate Fester and Velencia at St Nick’s in the District. If it runs true to the latest experience, JP’s gonna lose big time in his fight with Lyonyo. JP’s attacks on Dickie and Mark are actually attacks on Lyonyo… but Lyonyo has too much support amongst the Syosset apparat and the SVS cabal. In short, JP’s trying to divert questions about his alleged homosexuality (and of his pals Brum and Eliel) by tossing accusations of sexual immorality at Dickie and Mark. I’ll tell ya what’s so sick in all this… five of the principals are, most probably, part of the rolling OCA fagorama… JP, Mark, Dickie, Eliel, and Brum. Lyonyo, Berzonsky père et fils, Erickson, and Bobby have known of this moral rot for years (not to mention Feodosy Lazor, Pierre l’Huillier, Peterson, Soraich, and Brittain, amongst others)… and done nothing (save to make god-knows-how-many “confidential settlements”).

Once you know this, you can see through Mark’s posts. He still believes that he can regain his old sinecure in the Syosset Chancery, and that he, Wheeler, Hunchak, and the younger Hopko will run things to Lyonyo’s satisfaction. It’s not going to happen. Oh, one last thing… Mark did NOT mention the backstabbing attempt by Alexander Webster against him. Mark’s a gutless coward who refuses to stand up and fight his foes. If someone attacks me… I cosh ‘em back… HARD! IN PUBLIC! That’s how you handle that. His supine passivity militates against you trusting anything that he writes. You can take the measure of someone by how they handle opposition. I’ve always been straightforward and stand-up about it… you can trust me, as a result. Mark’s a craven and scared punk… you can’t trust him, his actions convict him.

It’s never boring in American Orthodoxy, is it? Do pass me the jug, the world’s being especially “fallen” today…
