31 May 2012. Fathausen to Speak at OCL Conventicle… He Used Good People Over the Memorial Day Weekend and Then He Does THIS… BASTARD!

______________________________

Fathausen’s up to old tricks, again. Read this.

Kids, that means that NOTHING that Fathausen said in NE PA over Memorial Day Weekend was sincere and on the up-and-square. He used people, yet again. He lied, yet again. He pissed all over the good intentions of goodhearted people, yet again. This proves that Fathausen’s a Renovationist of the worst sort; he hangs out with unrepentant Schmemannites such as Maksim Vasiljević. He’s schmoozing with OCL, because they’re all from the affluent effluent; he’s back to his old trick of kissing the bums of the well-off, 24/7. In short, everything he said Sunday in a particular well-known PA borough was pure BS, with the intention of using (and abusing) “little people” for his low purposes.

I always knew that JP was a cynical salesman, with no regard for humanity or religion, but this seals it. OCL is an anti-Church organisation, and always has been. It stands for the takeover of the Church by the McMansion dwellers… and Fathausen drools his approval. OCL stands for Godless American Neoliberalism… because they’ve profited from it.

I apologise to the good po-nashemu people that Fathausen lied to last weekend… I don’t like saying, “I told you so”, but that’s what happened. You were nothing but a pawn in this jabronie’s calculations. This is unforgivable… and utterly without excuse. To say that my Kozak dander’s up is an understatement. As a friend of mine said, “He tells people what they want to hear”… but that isn’t honourable… it isn’t upright… and it’s totally lacking in character.

How much longer must this go on?

Nikolić Inaugurated President of Serbia

Serbian President Tomislav Nikolić (1952- )

______________________________

On Thursday, Serbian President Tomislav Nikolić officially took office for a five-year-term by taking the oath of office in parliament, “I swear to devote all my efforts to preserving the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Serbia, with Kosovo and Metohija as a integral part, to realise human rights and freedoms for national minorities, respect and protect the constitution and laws, maintain the peace and promote the welfare of all Serbian citizens, and that I’ll faithfully and responsibly carry out all my obligations”. Then, a band played the national anthem, Bože pravde (God of Justice).

After taking the oath, he said that Serbia should join the EU, but it mustn’t abandon its sovereignty and territorial integrity to do so, it mustn’t give up Kosovo and Metohija, saying, “I want a different Serbia… I won’t stop fighting until Serbia becomes a just and democratic state under the law. I want Serbia to be a country free from the fear of the future, to be a full EU member, but we’ll never give up Kosovo and Metohija. I see Serbia as a house with two doors… one to the west and one to the east”. In his speech, the new president drew attention to the fact that Serbia was in crisis, and that Serbs lost faith in their government because of “its incompetence, it carried out privatisation, it was corrupt, and it leeched off society”.

For the first time, Nikolić invited all the other 11 candidates in the presidential race to the similar ceremony. Government officials, foreign diplomats, representatives of the army, police, international organisations, religious figures, members of the electoral commission, university rectors, heads of various government agencies, and other public figures, also attended the event. Another solemn inauguration ceremony with the participation of foreign guests will be in Belgrade on 11 June. Nikolić became President of Serbia after winning the second round of the presidential election on 20 May, where he beat former President Boris Tadić by about 2 percent of the vote. The current presidential election was the tenth multi-party election held since 1990, when Serbia was part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. So far, there have been four Presidents of Serbia, Slobodan Milošević  (two terms), Milan Milutinović (one term), Boris Tadić (two terms), and, now, Nikolić . The authorities found four of the elections invalid.

31 May 2012. Neither the ROCOR or the OCA Have Placed Any Major and Substantive Coverage of JP in Mayfield on Their Official Websites… FOR SHAME! JP Promised “Transparency”… If THIS is What He Means by “Transparency”, “NO THANKS”

******

Where is the Mayfield story on the main sites? One of the BIGGEST stories of the decade… and they’re silent… draw your own conclusions, kids.

______________________________

Four days have passed since JP’s visit to Mayfield. FOUR DAYS. Let that sink in. An OCA First Hierarch visits St John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Mayfield PA, the site of one of the bitterest battles of the Church War, and we get… links to a local parish website on oca.org and nothing on the official ROCOR website. This is professional dereliction of the highest order. Peter Perekrestov’s a priest, so, he’s got an “excuse”. In any case, priests shouldn’t be doing things that are the laity’s portion… the Mother Church has a communications director who’s a layman… ‘nuff said. Ginny Nieuwsma of the OCA is a paid apparatchik… this proves that she’s nothing but a mouthpiece and flack for Fathausen, a lickspittle of the worst sort, she’s not only a running dog, she’s incompetent to boot.

As for me, I’ll not give a detailed rundown of what I would’ve done… I don’t give free lessons to worthless layabouts like Lil’ Mizz Ginny. However, I’ll give an outline of what you would’ve seen. Firstly, this didn’t happen overnight, there was planning involved in such an undertaking. I’d have been present in Mayfield, I would’ve had a camera in hand, I would’ve have seen to it that audio and video recordings were not only up to snuff, but that there’d be redundancies in the case of failure of this-or-that piece of equipment, and I’d be certain that there’d be several laptops available loaded with photo-edit software so that postings could go out IMMEDIATELY. On Sunday, there would’ve been an initial post giving the details (not just names of clergy), plus four to six of the best images (anything over that is overburden, and pros avoid it). On Monday, there’d be follow-up coverage, with more images. On Tuesday, I’d post commentary on the event plus an interview with tough questions with Fr John, the rector in Mayfield. We’d wrap things up on Wednesday, with an interview (again, not skirting the “hard” topics) via phone with Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral giving his POV on the whole matter.

There. That’s what I would’ve done, and I’d would’ve done it in such a way that people got the news quickly, accurately, and as completely as I could do it. That’s what journalists do. Peter Perekrestov’s no journalist… he’s a priest. He should stick to “priesting”… that’s the gift that God gave him. A priest isn’t a journalist, and a journalist isn’t a priest… the skill-sets and outlooks are that radically different. Hey, don’t come to me with this-or-that spiritual problem… I’m not clergy (wrong gender, not ordained, no training in it, etc, etc, etc)… go to someone like Fr Peter. However, if you want someone to chase down a story, someone who’s not afraid of crook clergy and bishops… I’m the person that you’re looking for.

Fathausen continually opens his Southern-fried yap about “transparency”. I observe that he doesn’t practise it. If he was what he claims he is, trust me, I’d defend him. However, over four years, I’ve found him to be nothing but a liar, a secretive SOB, a man who gives favour to konvertsy scummers over all others, and someone who says one thing to that party and another to this party. Therefore, no sale. Fathausen claims that he’s surrounded by disloyal and crank retainers… we all know what kind of people make such paranoid accusations. In any case, no one twisted Fathausen’s arm to give a paper at a Uniate conference or to hobnob with oddbod Anglicans and Proddies. I’ve observed and reported his actions… and they don’t match his recent words… ergo, I don’t believe them to be sincere and truthful. He’d have to repudiate the Uniates, HOOMies, Nashotah House, and his ill-considered political dabblings PUBLICLY and disassociate himself from Bobby K, Brum, Jillions, Lyonyo, Benjamin Peterson, and Eliel before any decent person should give him a hearing. Bluntly speaking, nothing’s changed… it’s mere wind up to this point.

This was THE momentous occasion of the decade… and look how it was handled. Hand me the jug… I know that the world’s not a nice place… but this? I compare this hutsky-klutsky disaster to the on-the-spot coverage offered by the ACROD people… and they don’t have a pot to piss in. If you want respect, guys, you can start by “doing the right thing”. You haven’t… and people won’t trust you until you do… and I don’t have anything to do with that. The ball’s in your court, and you’ve failed, up to this point. Shall you do what’s right? Don’t ask me, c’mon tell us… “transparency”, dontcha know…
