Moscow Refuses to “Get Used” to US Envoy’s “Gaffes”

Stop! Children! Our Kids Will NOT be the Last Generation on Earth

McFaul isn’t alone… America‘s a rogue nation. If it’s not stopped, God alone knows where it’ll end. America is the leading exponent of violence, bloodshed, and destruction… all in the name of “humanitarian intervention” and “giving your heart to Jayzuss”. Can no one say, “hypocrisy?”

______________________________

On Wednesday, a senior Russian diplomatic source said that Moscow considers the “blunt” statements by US Ambassador Michael McFaul to be totally unacceptable, whilst his lack of professionalism could be detrimental to the reset of Russian-US relations. On Tuesday, The US State Department said that Russia would have to “get used” to McFaul’s outspoken statements as he isn’t a professional diplomat and often speaks plainly on sensitive matters. Our source, who spoke on condition of anonymity {how much you want to bet that it was the Old Master himself, Sergei Lavrov?: editor}, told our RIA-Novosti correspondent, “The Americans shouldn’t expect the government of a sovereign state to get used to impertinent remarks from the head of a diplomatic mission, who admits openly that he’s just started to learn his craft. It’s understandable that the State Department immediately offered excuses for his gaffes, but it’d be more appropriate to advise Mr McFaul to get used to the fact that the lack of professionalism in diplomacy is a dangerous and unacceptable thing”.

On Monday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) blasted McFaul’s speech delivered to students at the National Research University-Higher School of Economics in Moscow saying that his assessment of Russian-US cooperation “goes far beyond the bounds of diplomatic etiquette”. McFaul’s statement about the Manas Air Base in Kyrgyzstan particularly dismayed Russian diplomats, when the American diplomat told students that Russia had bribed the Central Asian state in 2009 to prompt the country to shut down the US military airbase there. He added that his country had also offered a bribe to Kyrgyzstan, but ten times smaller. McFaul responded to the MID’s criticism by writing in his Twitter blog that he’s “still learning the craft of speaking more diplomatically”. Both Russian officials and private individuals criticised the US ambassador since his arrival in January. Critics accused him of supporting Russian opposition groups, or even plotting a revolution in Russia, which McFaul fiercely denied.

Editor’s Note:

McFaul’s lying… full stop. Like most Anglo-Saxon Americans, he believes in American Exceptionalism (America has a right to judge the world, yadda, yadda, yadda). His bio at Stanford includes the line, “McFaul’s current research interests include democracy promotion, comparative democratisation, and the relationship between political and economic reform in the post-communist world”. “Democracy Promotion” is Newspeak for “attacking states that we don’t like in order to install puppet juntas of our liking”. Despite being a Democrat, he’s got friendly ties with warmonger neocons. He’s on the board of Freedom House, one of the most egregious enemies of the Rodina and the Orthosphere, and a major source of disinformation and outright lies concerning our motherland and Church. The Neoliberal Carnegie Endowment noted, “McFaul’s current research interests include régime change in non-democratic states, US foreign policy, and US-Russian relations in the 1990s”. In an online interview, McFaul described himself as a “specialist on democracy, anti-dictator movements, and revolutions”.

There’s not much to choose between this guy and Condi Rice! Hell, could we showcase ‘em as “Mickey and Condi”… or, is it, “Condi and Mickey?” He openly meets with unpatriotic elements… the good word has it that he passes money to them… truly, this self-righteous smarmy SOB should get le sabot, but Russia doesn’t want to hurt President Obama’s re-election chances (he’s preferable to the Born Again Birther Fanaticism of Wafflin’ Willy’s crew). To be frank, the US State Department’s been playing footsie with questionable CIS elements such as Kasparov, the Banderist Ukrainians, Rusantsov and other rebellious schismatic religious figures, Baltic Neo-Nazis in Latvia and Estonia, Nemtsov, and the Uniates for years.

If the Russian Ambassador were to do only 10 percent of what the US does on the territory of the former USSR, why, there’d be a hue and cry… and rightly so. Anglo-Saxon Americans are juvenile babyish bullies. As Simon Schama put it:

By the end of the nineteenth century, the stereotype of the ugly American… voracious, preachy, mercenary, and bombastically chauvinist… was firmly in place in Europe.

That’s no stereotype… its reality. Look at Wafflin’ Willy, King Rush, and Queen Ann… they’re all too typical, sadly. McFaul has a responsibility to make a complete and public apology to President Putin for his egregious and aggressive actions. No country should put up with such interference from a supposedly friendly state. America has NOTHING to teach Russia… indeed, it has NOTHING to teach the world. After all, who gave the world the heartbreak of Southern Slavery, the Trail of Tears, the joys of Mormon Polygamy, and the A-Bombing of Hiroshima? I don’t think that I need go on…

A Note to Orthodox readers:

Jonas Paffhausen voluntarily spoke at the American Enterprise Institute, one of the leading Far Right opponents of the Rodina and Orthosphere. I fear that he’s a McFaul supporter in pectore (as are most konvertsy, frankly put). It’s bad enough when the Church and the Russian state have to contend with schmutz from stuck-up self-worshipping Americans. It doesn’t need American “Orthodox” sucking up to and supporting such anti-Christian elements. I only report what I see (and I REFUSE to be silent “for the good of the Church”… much evil’s been done under that rubric, kids).

Opponents of EU-IMF Deal Ahead in Greek Polls

____________________________

According to an opinion poll conducted by VPRC for Epikera magazine, the Coalition of the Radical Left, known as SYRIZA, which opposes a credit deal with the EU and IMF, is once again in the lead in the election race. If the elections took place next Sunday, SYRIZA would get 30 percent of the vote compared to 26.5 percent for conservative New Democracy, which supports the credit agreement. SYRIZA is competing with New Democracy to become the biggest party in parliament in 17 June elections that could send further shock waves through Europe. Last week’s opinion polls put SYRIZA behind New Democracy by between 1.3 and 5.7 percentage points. SYRIZA wants to halt austerity programs, restore social spending, and continue to receive the payments from the Eurozone and the IMF to keep Greece from bankruptcy.

Editor’s Note:

The Western media trumpeted the previous polls, which seemed to show an advantage for New Democracy. Where are they now? THEY’RE SILENT! If you needed proof of the rightward tilt of the Western media, here it is. Unfortunately, very few will notice anything. You see, the Western élite knows how to repress people and keep them sheepishly docile. You don’t lock them up… you give them money and baubles… you dangle shiny consumer goods in front of them… they “police” themselves, sadly enough. Most won’t pick up their heads from the trough… and that’s the way it is for all too many at present, like it or not. The carrot IS stronger than the whip… I’ve seen it. It’s not pretty…

Huxley, not Orwell, nailed it… and that’s sad.

Johnny Hallyday landed at Sheremetevo Airport on the night of 28 May. The French rocker, songwriter, and actor long dreamed of visiting Russia; he’s coming to prepare for his first concert here, slated for 27 October. The musician met with reporters and told them that he always wanted to visit Russia and that he’s here to see what technical backup for his concert is available in the Moscow area. Johnny promised to pick a programme especially suited for his Russian fans. During his long career, Johnny Hallyday (real name Jean-Philippe Smet) has made more than 400 tours, attended by more than 15 million fans, and sold 80 million CDs by 2005. Hallyday has 18 platinum albums; he’s written many songs in the French chanson style {in Russian, shanson is a different genre, also known as “thieves’ song”: editor}, and composed the music for many films.
