3 December 2011. Fantasy vs Reality… American Rightwing Slobbering vs Russian Reality

Here’s the typical American rightwinger’s view of Russia

******

Here’s the Russian reality… the Zyablikovo station on the Moscow Metro

******

Here’s what the typical American rightwinger is full of in re the Motherland… and its 100 percent pure and unadulterated by the truth…

******

ANY QUESTIONS?

NB:

Russian Orthodox people in Washington DC in search of a BS fix on Tuesday 6 December 2011 need only go to 1150 Seventeenth Street NW (yep, kids, near legendary K Street),12th floor, and look for the “American Enterprise Institute” (a Far Right “think tank”) at 17.00 EST. Get there early before JP eats up all the pizza…

3 December. For and To a Friend… You, Ol’ Kvas-Lover, You… A Cyber-Gift for the Holidays

______________________________

When I saw this image, I thought immediately of one of my friends, who’s a kvas maven. He learned to love the home-made stuff… ah… you don’t find THAT much any more. I listened to him… that’s how I know that. When you listen to others, you not only learn about them, you learn about yourself. You react… you process it… you think of what you could do. At least, that’s my method. Often, I talk to draw people out. You see, a good listener has to be a good talker, too. If you don’t speak up, your interlocutor can’t respond. That’s what makes face-to-face communication so exciting and indispensable to me. Each conversation is unmarked and uncharted territory… for you can’t know what your friend is going to say! A conversation is one of those things that’s “greater than the sum of its parts”. A person talking to themself is crazy… two people talking together might argue, they might disagree, but they could also choose to see past that disagreement and get something done. That’s what love’s all about. It’s not about being “nice”… it’s not about “politeness”… it’s not about “civility”. It’s not even about “agreement”. It’s the action of holding your out hand to another, no matter what.

That’s why I oppose the rightwing and all of its works in politics, and that’s why I oppose Paffhausen, Lebedeff, Reardon, Potapov, Lyonyo, and the rest of the konvertsy in religion. They’re all “ME FIRST”, despite all the smarmy rhetoric that they deploy. If you stand for Christ, you stand for Concord, if you stand for Concord, you can’t stand for Greed and Cupidity. If you stand for Concord, you hold out the hand of friendship. If you stand for Greed, you smash others with the fist of hatred. That’s why I oppose the Republican Party and all its works… it’s why I oppose everything that the named Orthodox clerics stand for. The USA has been a ravening beserker in foreign parts since the fall of the USSR… and the Republican Party has mutated into a gibbering apologist for Permanent Warfare, and the Christian Right has become its obsequious running-dog lackey. It’s time to say, “Enough!”

Quite a long go-’round, wot? You can fight for Love or you can fight for Hate. I choose to fight for Love and stand by my friends. If you stand for Love, you MUST fight Hate… yet, oddly enough, it isn’t “hatred”. You CAN be a Lover AND a Fighter all at once!

My friend knows that I wrote this especially for him… this one’s for you, kid…

3 December 2011. Have a Smile… LONG LIFE TO THE STALIN CAT!

______________________________

Take this one as you will… but do have a smile during this hectic holiday season. Remember… your cat owns you… it’s not the other way ’round… and don’t you forget it! Have a cat’s attitude… they always mistrust overly-earnest and much-too-keen enthusiasts… they’re always much more trouble than they’re worth. What the cat wants to know is, “Where’s my Supper Supreme?” That’s called “keeping it focused”. They’re NOT impressed with long lectures on this or on that. Pass the jug and pour some for your “Little Stalin” too… МИЯУ!

3 December 2011. No News on oca.org on Fathausen’s Soirée in Texas… They Also Posted Nothing about Speech to Far-Rightwing Group on Tuesday

Will there be ANY pizza left after JP assaults it? Perspirin’ minds wanna know!

______________________________

Remember how Fathausen claimed that the secrecy and duplicity of Herman Swaiko was “all over?” Well, kids, I’ve got to say that Fathausen makes Hermie look squeaky-clean. JP’s a duplicitous, lying, and secretive sack o’ shit. Herman was a greasy pol; JP’s a fanatical enthusiast. Herman was a royal pain in the arse… El Gordo’s not only a definite danger not only to himself, but also to the continued existence of the OCA. Look at the fact that they only managed to raise about 6 Gs at the last Sobor. That’s pathetic. In one respect, I don’t envy Lil’ Mizz Ginny… she has to try to put a good face upon the creaking administration of a grinning and grasping power-hungry adolescent. Nevertheless, she has a duty as a journalist and human being to get out the news. She’s refused to do so… it speaks volumes about her character… she’s willing to lie, cheat, and misinform in order to draw a paycheque. I wouldn’t trust her, and I don’t think that you should, either. As of 12.10 EST Saturday 3 December 2011, there’s no mention of Fathausen’s little Dixie Fry in Texas. One wonders if Lil’ Mizz Ginny’s there or not… don’t hold your breath. You can be certain that oca.org isn’t going to report anything about it. JP pisses on you and laughs… the only people that matter to him are the HOOMie cultists and the other konvertsy.

Guess what? Not only did oca.org REFUSE to give you any news about Fathausen’s little shindig in Texas, they’ve also refused to tell you about Fathausen’s upcoming speech to a far-rightwing “think tank” in the District on Tuesday (it’s near K Street, kids… all of us “in the know” know what THAT means). Click here for proof of it. Here’s the AEI blurb in its entirety:

The average American income is 10 percent greater today than 30 years ago, yet the debt burden of American households has more than doubled over the same time period. How should a person of faith deal with the pressures of a consumer society? At what point does materialism begin to corrupt? How does our faith influence our pursuit of material prosperity? In a keynote address, the Orthodox Church in America’s Metropolitan Jonah, Archbishop of Washington and Metropolitan of All America and Canada, will address these questions and more, providing insight into how persons of faith might deal with the challenges brought by the consumer age. A pizza dinner will be provided.

Bear in mind that Fathausen’s skating on Potapov’s blat and influence in the District (Potapov is/was a government official with reputed ties to Langley)… he’s not giving this speech because he’s got any pull or cred himself. For those of you who live near the District, why not “crash the party” and “make his day?” Be there at 17.00 EST Tuesday 6 December 2011, 1150 Seventeenth Street NW, AEI, 12th floor, Washington DC (it’s on the Red Line of the DC Metro (Potapov lives near a Red Line station), get off at the Farragut North station… I THINK that you could take a #80 Georgetown bus, too). “Occupy AEI!” Now, there’s something to cheer about! At the Q&A, ask El Gordo embarrassing questions like, “If the average American family now has a purchasing power equal to 85 percent of its 1980 level, and the top 1 percent is 250 percent above its 1980 level, why where you silent on that proven and objective fact?” You could also ask him, “Why didn’t you go to His Holiness’ birthday party? They did invite everybody else”. Of course, then, you could end it with, “Why did you retain your guru-disciple relationship with Gleb Podmosehnsky even after credible accusations of child abuse against him surfaced? Why did you go to Russia under his auspices?” Mr Transparency would flee, that’s for sure! He wouldn’t leave his pizza uneaten, though… the “dinner” is supposed to precede JP’s speech.

That’s an interesting wrinkle in this event. “A pizza dinner will be provided”. That’s chintzy. Pizza’s a snack (a good one, to be sure, but it’s NOT dinner)! Pizza’s also a component of the Breakfast of Champions (cold pizza and warm beer), but DINNER? Here’s a colloquy between one of the joyful perspirin’ minds and me (I’m in plain type, my interlocutor’s in italics):

Do you note that Fathausen doesn’t like publicising his events on oca.org?

Maybe, if he did, the other members of the Synod would know what he’s doing. 🙂 “Pizza Dinner”, well, Reagan tried to get ketchup classified as a vegetable for school lunches, so, for these conservative clowns this would be a banquet. Now, it’s the Nativity Fast and it’s a Tuesday, so, wine is “in”, but will his Beatitude remove the cheese from his pizza? 😀 

Oh, one last thing… the AEI fiasco’s being publicised by JP’s uncredentialised and strutting “psychologist” pal Gregory Jensen. Here’s an odd wrinkle on him… I checked the oca.org clergy directory and here’s how they have him listed:

Jensen, Rev Gregory

St Nicholas Cathedral
Archdiocese of Washington DC

2302 Crest Line Drive
Madison WI 53704 USA

Home: 608 520-0856

Spouse: Mary Ruth

How can one be a cleric of St Nick’s in the District and live in Wisconsin? That’s halfway across the country! Is Jensen a bi-locating saint? Either the address in the oca.org directory is wrong or JP’s playing funny games with the clergy roster at St Nick’s… the latter is very possible, given his record (remember JP’s questionable group of nuns from Greece that Potapov inveigled the ROCOR into taking?). As birds of a feather DO flock together, don’t forget that Jensen’s a questionable uncredentialised “therapist” (he has no professional standing as a licensed clinical psychologist, he lacks the requisite training and education, and he’s never had a recognised clinical internship as such), so, does that make Fathausen a questionable and uncredentialised hierarch (much like Dickie Wood’s claimed kandidatura)? Perspirin’ minds wanna know…

By the way… does anyone have ANY info on Fathausen’s supposed “evaluation”… he appears to be up to the same tricks that he was pulling before the Sobor. Shame on you, Gregory Nescott! At best, you’re a dupe taken in by JP’s honeyed lies… at worst… need I go on?

NB:

Supposedly, Jensen’s address is in Madison WI. Did he stand with the real people during the Capital Showdown or did he stand with the slobbering and grasping Affluent Effluent swine who supported Dropout Scott Walker?
