14 May 2012. Jannakos to be Preceded at DC Cathedral by John Perich


A reliable source confirms that Jannakos will be the Dean in DC ultimately, but the good word has it that Step One’s supposed to be the arrival of Fr John Perich, who’ll “clean things up” to prepare the way for Jannakos. The exact timing for all of this is unknown. For all those in the know, Perich is the hustler who appeared on the QVC shopping channel pushing Russian curios. Perich is also part of Bobby K’s “mafia”… if this isn’t proof that Bobby’s one of the manipulators behind JP, well, nothing will do. The First Families are circling the wagons… first, we had Potapov going off on the ROCOR official website over a family member who was a (Church) dissident; now, we have this. A few “somebodies” have misgivings about the future… keep your heads DOWN, kids… “Duck yer nut”… there be some wild shit out there, and I wouldn’t want to see anybody hurt. These guys are playing “for keeps”…


“And Then There Was One”… Congressman Ron Paul Won’t Run In Any More US Presidential Primaries


US Republican Congressman Ron Paul, a libertarian candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, said that he wouldn’t run in any more primaries, but he didn’t wrap up his presidential campaign, saying, “I’m not going to spend any further money from my campaign fund in any primary in the states that haven’t voted yet”. The campaign continues as former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has become the de facto front-runner for the Republican Party nomination for President, as after nearly all of his rivals have dropped out, except for Paul. Most observers considered that Paul was an outsider in the race… in the primaries so far, he was in last or next-to-last place.

If Paul stops running in the primaries, they’ll become virtually uncontested races. Nevertheless, Paul said, “I’ll continue to fight for voting delegates to the Party Convention”, which will be in late August in Tampa FL, to choose a candidate to run in presidential election on 6 November. As Paul explained, he intends to fight on, taking part in regional party conventions, which include those states that already held primary elections. Thus, Paul hopes to get votes from delegates who supported former candidates who’ve dropped out of the race. So far, Romney has 919 committed delegates for the party convention, Paul has only 82 committed delegates. To win nomination, a candidate needs the support of 1,144 delegates. Incumbent President Obama will run on the Democratic line; various polls have him ahead of Romney by 7 to 10 percentage points.

Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin sez the Lands of Holy Rus Could Change all Mankind in a Decade

00 Viktor Vasnetsov. The Baptism of Russia. 1896

The Baptism of Russia

Viktor Vasnetsov



Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin, the head of the MP Synodal Department for The Coordination of Church and Society, said that Russia, the Ukraine, Belarus and other Eastern Orthodox countries have the call to change all of mankind, saying, “Our Orthodox Eastern Slavonic civilisation isn’t the largest, but it’s a key sector because we now know how to open the door to a better life for the world, especially in Europe”. Fr Vsevolod made these remarks in Moscow on Monday during a Moscow-KievMinsk video-link dedicated to the international public hearing in Kiev scheduled for 28 July, the Day of the Baptism of Holy Rus {the feastday of Grand Prince St Vladimir, Equal-to-the-Apostles, and Enlightener of all Holy Rus: editor}, presided over by Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias.

According to Fr Vsevolod, the future of Europe lies not in London, Paris, or Brussels, but in Kiev, Minsk, Moscow, Kishinyov, Athens, and Bucharest, “the cities that are the centres of the Eastern Orthodox civilisation. Today, we in Kiev, Minsk, and Moscow are more ‘European’ than the Western countries. The West has departed from the ideals of Rome and Christendom, based on Roman law and Christian principles, conjoined by the Roman Emperors Constantine and Justinian. With this in mind, today, our civilisation shouldn’t succumb to the weak-willed West or to the intellectually-flabby East. We needn’t be dependent on others and be mere followers in the world dialogue of civilisations; we need to reunite intellect and will, tradition and innovation, faith and life, the spiritual and the so-called worldly. It’s our duty to change the world in the space of a decade… and we can do it”.

He hoped that the celebration of the Baptism of Holy Rus in Russia, Belarus, and the Ukraine would be an exciting event, “but most importantly… done with insight”, so that it’d attract a large number of young people, to help them reflect on the fact that this holiday “symbolises something much more important than economics, politics, or disputes over the details of state administration. All such mundane things change constantly, but we hope and believe that the vector of our people’s civilisational development will remain unchanged. Today, we have the call to build an Eastern Orthodox civilisation, which would hold the keys to the future of the world. If we don’t, the alternative is the Apocalypse”.

Editor’s Note:

This is one of the meatiest things to come from Vsevolod Anatolyevich in a long time. Note:

Today, we in Kiev, Minsk, and Moscow are more “European” than the Western countries. The West has departed from the ideals of Rome and Christendom, based on Roman law and Christian principles, conjoined by the Roman Emperors Constantine and Justinian.

When Russians talk of “Rome”, they don’t mean just ancient Rome; they also mean the Empire of Christian New Rome, for that’s where we got Christianity from, from Constantinopolis Nea Romana… what the Western heretics call the “Byzantine Empire”. Do note how the Uniates suck up to them, talking of “Byzantine” liturgy, or a “Byzantine” theology… we Russians should know better. New Rome is the organic successor of Old Rome (in fact, it’s more precise to speak of “Pagan Rome” and “Christian Rome”), there was no “Fall” of the Empire… there WAS a loss of the Western provinces of the Imperium. The Empire lasted until Emperor Constantine XI Palaiologos fell in battle against the Turks in 1453… that’s a historical fact.

Also, note this:

Today, we have the call to build an Eastern Orthodox civilisation, which would hold the keys to the future of the world. If we don’t, the alternative is the Apocalypse.

In short, Vsevolod Anatolyevich is issuing a call to build the Orthosphere… a civilisation where the ideals of Orthodoxy would merge with the best secular trends… to oppose the godless, mendacious, greedy, and Mammon-worshipping West. Reflect on this, the so-called “Evangelicals”, Mormons, and Pentecostalists are NOT our allies. They are INDIVIDUALISTS to the core; their “religion” is nothing but an apologia for social and economic anarchy. Not all anarchists are in rags and throw bombs… some sit on corporate boards or are preachers in this-or-that “megachurch”. The ideology of the “conservatives” in the Anglosphere is completely at odds with the deposit of Christendom and of Roman Law… it’s nothing but an unregulated arena where the strongest and most ruthless prey on everyone else. That has nothing in common with Our Lord Christ and with what He taught… and I think that Vsevolod Anatolyevich would agree with me.

This is one of the best things that I’ve translated in a LONG time.
