2 July 2012. Vladyki Joseph in LA Shitcans Wayward Priest With No Further Ado…

______________________________

Here’s a MEANINGFUL news item:

The former Archpriest Silas Ruark is deposed from the Holy Priesthood and returned to the rank of Layman effective immediately.

******

That’s it… that’s all… but it’s to the point. It didn’t take a long time… the bishop said, “Let his arse be grass, and I’m the lawnmower”, and IT HAPPENED. The Fairfield CA coppers nicked Ruark for nasty doings with kids and less than a week later, this. Compare this to Paffhausen’s laggardliness in dumping crook clergy (and, conversely, his zeal in defending dodgy sorts like Gerasim Eliel and Ray Velencia).

Hat tip to Vladyki Joseph al-Zehlaoui of the Antiochians for acting as a bishop should act. This is what should’ve happened to Benjamin Peterson, to Bobby K, and Ray Velencia, but it didn’t. It’s time to clean house, and let’s start with Bobby and Ray… Ray had the brass to sue another priest, and the word out there has it that Bobby’s footing the bill (no confirmation on that one, but it wouldn’t surprise anyone if confirmation did come through… after all, remember what happened to Bobby’s kid…).

Compare Joseph with Jonas. There’s no comparison, is there? What does one do when the bishop refuses to do his duty? I think the answer to that one lies with YOU…

What is Office Slang, and Who Eats It Up?

“Whales” and “Plankton” are contemporary slang… in other words, “We big shots don’t mess around with the small fry”.

Superjob.ru, interviewing 2,000 office workers from all over the country found that 25 percent of employees of Russian enterprises are gung-ho about using trade-specific slang.

Tall Ship “Kruzenshtern” won’t go to London for the Olympics because of a Threat that the Westerners may Detain the Ship as Retaliation for Russia “Keeping” the So-Called Schneerson Collection

______________________________

Aleksandr Saveliev, a Russian spokesman, said that the tall ship Kruzenshtern wouldn’t anchor at the port of London during the Olympic Games in 2012, as previously assumed, because of the possibility of detention of the vessel, saying, “We’ve received notification from the British authorities that there’s a chance that they could detain the ship. We’re not allowing the ship to go to the port of London, because we don’t want to risk our property, which is estimated at 120 million USD, or its crew and the cadets”. According to him, the threat of detention is associated with the litigation surrounding the so-called Schneerson Library. Earlier, reports indicated that the sailing ship Sedov, now on an around-the-world journey, wouldn’t be able to enter US ports for the same reason. It hasn’t yet received appropriate assurances from the American authorities that they wouldn’t detain it at the 200th anniversary of Fort Ross. According to Andrei Krainy, the head of the RF Fisheries Agency, “American authorities failed to give us guarantees about our ship, which has nothing to do with those events”.

In late July 2011, an American court decided to order the “return” of approximately 12,000 books and 50,000 rare documents from the so-called Schneerson Collection held in Russia to the Jewish religious organisation Chabad Lubavitch. Because of this, Russian cultural organisations, in particular, a number of major museums such as the Tretyakov Gallery, the Kremlin museums, and the Hermitage had to refuse to participate in exhibitions in the USA, as any art work sent to the USA could be “seized” as compensation, or detained until the Collection was “returned”. An ad hoc intergovernmental agreement could resolve the situation, but when this might happen isn’t clear. Last year, the Russian sailing ship Nadezhda didn’t make landfall in US ports because of the threat of detention in re the so-called Schneerson Collection.

Editor’s Note:

Goofy legal stunts like this are grist for the anti-Semites’ mill. The Chabad never owned the collection in question… therefore, they have NO right to it whatsoever, full stop. However, this shows one how stories of Jews “owning the courts and media” stay alive. People with money chose to use that money in a harassing law suit against Russia because they believe oddbod stories about how Zaydeh was chased by “Cossacks” (not completely true… but myths, once implanted, are damnably hard to uproot). Chabad’s suit should have been thrown out on its ear… instead, because “money talks and bullshit walks”, the suit proceeded, as local pols didn’t want to upset an affluent set in their district. President Obama will set it right, but he has to wait until after he wins the election… and the Russians know this, thankfully. As for Chabad, their sinful greed is on display for all to see… and I’m NOT anti-Semitic for pointing that fact up. It does take all kinds… including the terminally-greedy. Pass me the jug…

2 July 2012. Ann Coulter Backstabs John Roberts… NOT a Wise Move

Ann Coulter‘s backstabbed Justice Roberts in public… and without any warning. She’ll regret that in future, to be sure. 

______________________________

Read this. Note this, in particular:

Coulter stressed the historical problem with whisking through these “blank slate” type “stealth” nominees. It appears in Roberts’s case, according to Coulter, that he was more career-driven and wanted to be on the high court more than anything else. One of the ways he accomplished this, writes Coulter, was by keeping his personal opinions to himself throughout his career up until his confirmation. Coulter recently tweeted, since Justice Roberts sided with the liberal half of the court on the recent Obamacare decision, Roberts would “go down in history as the Warren Burger of the 21st Century”.

Queen Ann shall regret ever having written such twaddle. It’ll turn John Roberts not only against her, but also against all conservative pundits (who’ve done nothing but savage him since the ACA decision). In any case, John Roberts has read the tea leaves, and they tell him that Mittens is going to lose big-time in November. That’s why he refused to let the Court be used by the woollier elements of the GOP. If they wish to repeal the ACA, they’ll have to muster the votes to do so. By the way, they don’t have them now… and they never shall, for the demographic changes in the American population (brought about by the greed of American libertarian entrepreneurs) shall guarantee that the GOP as we know it is a dead duck.

Texas will be the bellwether, as Hispanic births outnumber Anglo births by 50 percent. When Texas flips, you may as well bury the GOP outside of Born Again precincts. That can’t happen soon enough for me.
