9 October 2012. Мы православые! We’re Orthodox!


After writing the story about the Orthodox poster campaign using celebrities last night, I said to myself… “Why use celebrities? Let’s just use the regular old po-nashemu Russian Orthodox folks that are “out there”. You see, REAL Orthodox people don’t wear “funny clothes” or have prunish expressions on our faces… our kids go to school with your kids, we don’t do goofball things like homeschooling… we bowl in the league on Tuesday, go to work every day with everybody else, and we like a hand of pinochle on Saturday night. We can hum Stenka Razin, eat pierogies, kolbasa, and kapusta, and laugh at Nu Pogodi.


Here’s Stenka Razin


and the first episode of Nu Pogodi!


We’re very “normal”… that’s because the Church isn’t the “little flock” or “Gideon’s Band“… it’s the Salvation Station of the Nation… it’s for everybody in the naroda. It’s for ALL of us, not just the “church hobbyists”. Who’s my authority? I’ll tell ya what, chum… ask any baba! That’s good enough for me…



9 October 2012. Monomuckos Nutters Stick Both Feet Full Force Into a Malodorous Cow Pat… How Long Will IT Take the OCA Holy Synod to Sue the Owner?

THIS is what Mel Pleska and HH think of El Gordo… they ain’t happy campers, and the subdeacons off-camera in this shot were smirking  because they know that the Big Kahuna was unhappy and they know that Fathausen was going to get the Italian Stallion after liturgy… another normal day at the Centre…


Click here for the latest idiocy from the Monomuckos pinheads. A lawyer friend of mine was succinct on the matter… “They can be sued. Big Time. For Big Bucks”. They’re not very bright at Monomuckos, but this takes the cake. They needed the permission of all the parties involved to post, and they didn’t get that (especially as it was documentation entered into a probable legal matter). I’ve had similar stuff in my hands but I knew that I couldn’t use it “as is”… I’d ask for confirmation and vetting, and write it up as a news story, not as a posting of an actual transcript.

As I say, STOOPID… in the extreme. They kicked Jillions and Lyonyo in the nuts in public; that’ll come back to haunt them. I’ve had people send me photos of Jillions, Lyonyo, and others in the Syosset Cabal, but like all real journalists, I know the difference between a real news story and an invasion of privacy. If it’s a picture of Sulich the computer geek having a friendly brew in the Chancery, that’s private, that ain’t news. If I get a photo of Dickie Wood, I can use it, but I have to photoshop out any “private people” in the snap to preserve their privacy. A photo of a private party of the Jillions family is radioactive, it’s verboten, it’s peering over the transom. Monomuckos is playing with hand grenades with the pins pulled out… they better have a good lawyer.

We fight hard here, but we fight FAIR. I refuse to misuse anything sent to me… and I refuse to air totally-private matters. Above all, I’m not going to do dumb-as-dirt shit like this. There’s such a thing as the Law of Unintended Consequence, which these cretinish jabronies have ignored. Now, they’ve started the ball rolling… it’ll go where it wills. I predict that they’ll end by sinking Fathausen & Co. If Moriak goes, he’ll do his damnedest to bring down JP, Maymon, Dahulich, and Golitzyn with him… they all have “dirty laundry”. Look at the image posted above. It’s what HH and Mel Pleska think of JP… it was in public, no less, and posted on the main MP website. This is utterly too much of a muchness. I think that Lyonyo is a POS, but it doesn’t allow me to cross well-known limits. I think that Jillions is a looney-tunes traitor who kisses the Pope of Rome‘s arse, but the same applies to him, too.

These people deserve to be strung up by the kahootchies and left to swing in the wind for sheer stupidity. They’ve opened up a box of shit that was best left locked… if they wanted to save Fathausen, that is. The Crazy Church Lady does know better than that…

9 October 2012. The Buzz on the Synod Meeting and the Grapevine Sez That Boyer Had a Private Confab with Hermie


Corey Boyer (convert Abbot Sergius at St T’s) paid a private secret visit to confab with Herman Swaiko. That’s a first-time ever for that. No one seems to know what it’s about. The good word has it that the OCA Holy Synod intends to bar any person who signs the OCA Investigative Petition from the Parma Sobor. Apparently, JP’s claque has them really spooked. I knew that they were going to run “credentials challenges” (and everyone should ready themselves to face them), but this means that Lyonyo and Jillions think that they’re losing their grip on the upcoming meeting. Indeed… could they cancel it? Hey… they could. I’m not saying that they WOULD… I’m saying that they COULD, if they felt that the situation was sufficiently in extremis.

To speak bluntly, not I, not anyone else, nor all of the King’s horses and all the King’s men can figure out what the tealeaves mean. Trust me, the only thing out there is wishful thinking… and that’s less substantial than political promises (which ain’t sayin’ much). However, there’s a whole lot of roiling in the pot… and it’s got Lyonyo, Tosi, Jillions, Behr, et al scared shitless. Now, that’s news…


9 October 2012. Another Cabinet Member Weighs in on Tikhon Shevkunov… It Needs No Commentary From Me

None of us has a completely “lucky” life… that means that Fr Tikhon will have a “bump” or two in  the road ahead, and he might find himself unable to deal with it… that’s the way of it in the world, isn’t it?


He’s a good man, but naïve. That’s because he’s naturally very gifted; he’s had everything handed to him on a platter, so, he’s never had to suffer. That’s why he’s immature, as maturity comes from suffering. That’s why he couldn’t see through Basil Rodzianko and why he adores Bloom… sheer naïveté and inexperience in life.
