7 May 2014. The Revival Will NOT be Televised… Putin Bans “Mat” (Russian Taboo Words) in Mass Media

00 Veliretskoe procession. 26.04.14

Religious procession in Russia… now, that’s a crowd…

******

00 st petersburg. detention centre nr 5. 07.05.14

Orthodox services at Detention Centre nr 5 in St Petersburg… as you can see, the revival’s in full swing… why are you surprised that it’s showing fruit in the law, too?

______________________________

Recently, the Russian government passed a law that American “Evangelicals” (as usual) didn’t get straight. Firstly, Russia passed a law banning public defamation of religion and religious believers. Then, it passed a law banning “homosexual propaganda” (suborning of minors by homosexuals). Now, it’s passed a law banning “mat” in the media. In Russian, there are three levels of language. Firstly, there’s standard literary Russian. Then, there’s colloquial Russian, which is far more earthy than American English is (it includes words that some Americans consider profanity such as “shit”, “piss”, and “ass/arse”). Finally, there’s “mat”, which isn’t acceptable in most situations (although it’s widely and vigorously used, especially, by men). Russian people are as straightforward as the French are… shit is shit, didn’t you know that? You don’t use euphemisms, you ask for the “toilet”, upfront and without cloying doubletalk. What this means is that no one can use the third level of Russian (which many Russians call “second-storey words”) in the cinema, on TV, in mass magazines, and in newspapers. NO “MAT” ALLOWED! One can use “vulgar” language, but the law bans the BIG FOUR (хуй, пизда, ебать, and блядь) or their derivatives. By the way, these words were under restriction earlier, the new law merely widens the ban, thus, it’s not so much a new restriction, as it’s a refinement and expansion of an earlier one.

You can see the pattern, don’t you? Russia wants to protect kids until they grow up enough to deal with the adult world. What’s so wrong with that?

The Revival will NOT be televised, the revival will be LIVE.

Click here for an ITAR-TASS article on the new law… be aware that “foul language” refers to “Mat” as defined above.

6 May 2014. Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice sez First Amendment for Christians Only… WHAT A MAROON!

00 Cuz Freedom Ain't Free. 26.10.13

______________________________

Read this. Hoo boy, I sure didn’t know that the First Amendment only applied to “Christians!” Wow, I thought that it meant that everyone had the right of free conscience… that the government wouldn’t intervene in religion, either for it or against it. I had the baroque notion that the founders DID establish an Enlightenment Secular Republic, NOT a Theocratic Dictatorship on the model of the early Massachusetts Bay Colony (they established something more on the lines of live n’ let live colonial New York… those smilin’ Dutchman did know a thing or two). Well… I was right and Mr Moore’s got shit for brains. Hey dere, Mr Moore! Freedom of conscience is for EVERYBODY or nobody’s got it. You can take your pseudo-“Christian” rubbish and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.

Moore got booted once for flakiness… it sure looks like he’s cruisin’ for another bruisin’. The sooner that we toss this bloviating scumbag out, the better. Freedom is what it is… and it’s NOT just for “Christians!”

Fighting Resumes in Slavyansk… Junta Terrorists want to Block Water Supply to Crimea… Junta Wants to Murder Patriot Leaders in the East

00 slavyansk 05. 06.05.14

Note the sign… “Slavyansk”… to use “Slovyansk” is to spit on the brave People’s Opolchenie. ‘Nuff said…

______________________________

In the early predawn hours on Wednesday, UNIAN reported that junta forces attacked opolchenie positions In Slavyansk. People heard gunshots on the outskirts of the city, the civil defence alarms went off, notifying civilian residents of an attack.

******

On Tuesday, presidential candidate Pyotr Poroshenko said at a press-conference, “Today, at a closed session of the Rada, we received evidence that what transpired on 2 May in Odessa in the Dom Profsoyuzov was indeed a terrorist attack. They used poisonous chemicals”. An international team of experts will investigate the tragedy; most expect it to reach the conclusion that the fire didn’t kill the majority of people who died there.

Editor:

Two takeaways from this… one, Poroshenko is distancing himself from the American “script”. No doubt, he saw what happened in Donetsk to his pal Taruta. He’s trying to avoid the same. Two, methinks that Langley slammed it in the door. It tried to repeat its stunt in Syria with poison gas, only the Galician neo-Nazis are a bunch of backwoods Jethro Bodines who fucked it up royally. They boasted on YouTube of what they did. What a buncha maroons…

BMD

******

Opolchenie sources told Interfax, “Fighting is going on near the TV tower in Andreyevka and at strongpoints in Kombikormochny and around the gas station. We’re recapturing the positions”. For now, there’s no information on casualties. Earlier, the opolchenie reported, “Junta troops captured the TV tower. We had to retreat to the city limits. The enemy entered Slavyansk”.

Editor:

Sources such as CNN, Fox News, the New York Times, and The Economist refuse to report the truth. Why? If they did, the reporters would lose their jobs, that’s why. It’s quite that simple. If you don’t parrot the neoliberal line, the new Pravda cans you. That means that Western journalists (except for total sellouts like Christiane Amanpour) mostly don’t believe a word that they report… it’s like late Sov times… everyone parrots the “party line”, but no one believes it, and most mock it in private. The post-1991 “rich man’s heaven” is drawing to a close and everyone (especially, the rich) knows it. The sacking of Taruta’s offices was only a Prologue…

In the early predawn hours on Wednesday, Interfax said that Channel five TV claimed that junta irregulars recaptured the Mariupol Gorsoviet building. Fascist “volunteer” irregulars stormed the building. Dozens of tyres burned in the city centre, and sporadic shooting occurred in different neighbourhoods all night. As of Wednesday morning, the central part of the city reopened to traffic.

Editor:

Friends tell me that the junta irregulars are real filth. Most are Uniates; they’re readily identifiable by their Galician hillbilly accents. They shoot wildly, beat up Orthodox priests, and go on manhunts of communists and others that they consider disloyal. Victoria Nuland and John McCain clap their hands in glee over such lawlessness… I wonder about Victor Potapov. He should resign publicly, put his resignation on the main ROCOR website for all to see, and state exactly what the late great Joe Adamov did, “I lied to you; I’m sorry that I did that”. Potapov should add, “I did it for money and I did it because I wanted to be ‘important’ in rightwing circles in the USA”. Don’t hold your breath…

On Wednesday, LifeNews posted on its website, “A LifeNews crew came under mortar attack [near Slavyansk]. Reporter Aleksei Kazannikov and cameraman Aleksandr Matveyev came under fire during a live broadcast”. Interfax stated that Kazannikov reported several minutes prior to the attack that junta spetsnaz emplaced Grad systems near a strongpoint.

******

Roman Lyagin, the head of the central elections commission of the Donetsk People’s Republic, told Interfax, “We won’t hold a presidential election here, in Donetsk Oblast. Officially, Viktor Yanukovich remains incumbent president, and there can’t be an election of a new president until the incumbent president steps down. All Raion and local elections commissions are busy preparing for the all-republic referendum on 11 May on the independence of Donetsk Oblast”.

******

Vyacheslav Ponomaryov, People’s Mayor of Slavyansk, told Interfax by phone, “Pavel [Gubaryov] (People’s Governor of Donetsk Oblast) has indeed been released. We exchanged three SBU members for three of our people, including Pavel. Pavel’s now in an area controlled by the Donbass people’s Opolchenie”.

Editor:

Was this an exchange sanctioned by the junta or was it a local deal? In view of bellicose statements from junta bosses, it may be the latter, but one can’t be sure.

******

ITAR-TASS reported that the junta is trying cut off the supply of fresh water to Crimea by erecting a dike made of sandbags across the North Crimean Canal. Eyewitnesses spotted cranes and other construction machinery 40 kilometres (@25 miles) from the Russian border, near the Armyansk-Kherson motorway. Following Crimea’s reunification with Russia, the junta arbitrarily decreased the flow of fresh water to the North Crimean Canal to a third of the regular amount since 14 April, and closed the sluice-gates completely on 24 April.

******

00 The junta writes a letter to Putin. 29.04.14

“We’re going to capture or liquidate all anti-Maidan elements in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk”… in a pig’s arse, I say…

______________________________

On Wednesday, Turchinov’s chief flunky boasted that they’d “liquidate or capture” all anti-Maidan patriots in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk. Early on Wednesday, junta fanatics murdered four patriot-federalization activists in the Gorsoviet building in Mariupol, and captured 16 people more.

******

On Wednesday, Interfax reported that the junta puppet administration in Donetsk Oblast claimed that the situation in Slavyansk and Slavyansk Raion remains tense, “Donetsk People’s Republic members now occupy the first floor of the central division of Ukrtelekom and Ukrpochta. Offices on the second floor are working. The main office sends, receives, or delivers no packages. They also occupy floors with the offices of the Ukrainian Pension Fund, an employment centre, and tax inspection. The gas supply and gasification department is only taking emergency calls. People were hurt in the fighting near Andreyevka last night. Four populated areas were without electricity for a week now”.

******

A statement on Mariupol’s 0629 website said, “The Ukrainian flag hoisted around 08.30 local time (22.30 6 May. 01.30 EDT. 06.30 BST. 09.30 MSK. 15.30 AEST) on Wednesday near the Gorsoviet building in Mariupol was taken down about three hours later, with several hundred supporters of the Donetsk People’s Republic gathering outside the building. MVDU troops left the building to the applause of those present. Since the morning, they’d controlled the entire area in front of the mayor’s office, and they were removing the barricades. Now, they’re near the administration, and the people surround them”.

******

On Wednesday, Georgi Fyodorov, deputy head of the Russian Civic Chamber’s Committee for Coordination of Aid to Residents of the Ukraine said, “Very alarming reports are coming in from our friends in Odessa. They suggest that control over the city has practically shifted to (oligarch Igor) Kolomoisky because Igor Palitsya, the new Governor of the Odessa Oblast, is his henchman. Unfortunately, we have reports that they brought armed militants of the Right Sector, fighters of the Dnepr and Kiev-1 spetsnaz battalions, and FK Dnipro football hooligans into the city and the overall number of the pro-junta combatants exceeds 4,000 there now. The most dangerous thing is that local police handed them the lists of pro-federation movement activists. In addition, we have information that checkpoints block the whole city and practically paralysing all traffic. The reports coming from Odessa are a cry for salvation. People ask the Public Chamber and me personally to appeal to international organizations and to Kiev to stop the planned terror actions and to stop the city’s slide into genocide. We’re working on this very scrupulously now and watching the situation inside and outside of the city”.

Editor:

The junta’s word is worthless… now, the oligarchs saw what happened to Taruta’s office and they’re scared shitless. They will do ANYTHING to protect their money… which is more important than anything else to them. They WILL kill to protect it… so would their American sponsors, if it came to that… Willy Romney, sadly enough, would find enough dupes to fight for his money. The American equivalents of the Uniates are the so-called “Evangelicals” (and all of their scurvy brethren)… ignorant, uneducated, violent, coarse, and backward… motivated by a pseudo-religion spouting Exceptionalism and hatred. Ponder that, if you will…

A participant told RIA-Novosti over the phone that pro-junta “National Guard” irregular toughs suppressed demonstrators who were in support of patriots detained in an earlier junta operation. About 200 people took part in a meeting near the GU MVDU building in Mariupol, where the junta forces brought detained patriots after an action early this morning. The detainees’ families feared that the junta irregulars would sneak their relatives out of the city. The local health centre reported that several people suffered injuries, but there’s no information about arrests. Now, the streets are empty, only a few people are keeping an eye on the situation.

Clashes between patriots and junta irregulars took place in Mariupol over the last 24 hours. Earlier, a opolchenie source told RIA-Novosti that junta elements filled a building under patriot control with gas, so the occupants had to leave. Eyewitnesses said that afterwards about 50 men armed with avtomats started shooting, detaining 20 opolchenie, taking them to the GU MVDU building. At present, 16 people remain in detention {reports say that four of the 20 are dead… murdered by “National Guard” thugs: editor}.

Darlin’ Yuliya Threatens Second Coup If Not Elected… Uniate Thugs Fire at Civilians Trying to Leave Slavyansk

00 slavyansk 01. 06.05.14

Note the sign… it’s “SLAVYANSK”… NOT “Slovyansk”… the former is the Russian name used by the locals… the latter is the Galician peasant dialect name used by the fascist murderers. If you support the People’s Republics in the east, you will NEVER use the nasty-ass Galician names for localities… the locals use Russian, so should you. It’s Lugansk, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Gorlovka… you get the message. Get with the programme and get with the people… not with nasty-ass Galician peasant Nazis.

______________________________

Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yuliya Timoshenko, now a candidate for Ukrainian President, said that she was the only politician in the Ukraine capable of conducting political reforms that the country badly needs. Speaking at a news conference in Nikolayev, Timoshenko put it frankly, “I don’t want to bear responsibility for the failure of the revolution any longer, but if the country elects any other president, and, in fact, I have only one rival now, I think that we’d have to venture the third round of revolution. Otherwise, I don’t see any chance for changes. I simply know all these people. My bill would help solve the problem of corruption, but many representatives of the oligarchic authorities, including my chief rival, Pyotr Poroshenko, aren’t interested in it”. According to latest public opinion polls, one-third of all respondents favoured Poroshenko, whilst Timoshenko garnered only 10 percent of those polled.

Editor:

The so-called “opinion polls” don’t count Party of Regions/KPU strongholds; ergo, they’re rubbish and without merit. However, this is what the West wants… an illegitimate election, with a predetermined outcome. Poroshenko may win the election, but he has no support in the east at all… after all, didn’t the Donetsk people just sack Taruta’s offices? The oligarchs’ days are numbered… what does that say of their American corporate sponsors?

Kirill Kleimyonov, news programmes director at Pervy Kanal (Channel One) TV, told ITAR-TASS, quoting Ukrainian officials disgusted at criminal orders, that the SBU is engineering a provocation against Russian TV reporters covering the events in the southeast Ukraine. He said, “The SBU obtained medicines forbidden in the Ukraine, but allowed in Russia, so as plant them in the Kharkov hotel rooms where the reporters are staying. According to my sources, the masterminds of the provocation are targeting the crews from Rossiya Channel’s Vesti newscast and Pervy Kanal”.

******

Dmitri Simonov, the press secretary of the Donbass People’s Opolchenie told ITAR-TASS, “Quite possibly, soldiers with avtomats supported masked Right Sector militants when they attacked a strongpoint near the town of Argobaza, which  is near Mariupol. Due to the attack, one person died and another three wounded, one of them seriously. Opolchenie commanders are trying to get information on the man’s condition. We’d say that the junta deployed about a thousand fighters near Mariupol. They intend to assault the city and to mop it up later”.

Editor:

“Fighter” is the correct term for the junta forces… most of them are irregulars and undisciplined, led by fanatic mob leaders with no military ability (with even more fanatic commissars attached to each unit by the junta). They’re NOT soldiers by any stretch of the imagination.

BMD

******

On Tuesday, a Ukrainian security official told RIA-Novosti on condition of anonymity that the junta took Russian military uniforms and fake IDs to Donetsk, saying, “They want to stage an attack on Ukrainian border guards by people dressed in Russian military uniforms and make a video of it. The SBU transferred about 20 personal bodyguards of Dnepropetrovsk Oblast Governor Kolomoisky from Kiev to Donetsk. In Donetsk, members of the Right Sector met the group. The group accompanied a cargo of about 200 sets of Russian military uniforms and about 70 [blank] IDs of Russian military officers”.

Editor:

Professional military and security officers expose every move that the junta tries. What do they know that we don’t?

A spokesman for the Slavyansk opolchenie told ITAR-TASS by telephone that junta forces surrounding Slavyansk are preventing civilians from leaving the city and fire at their cars and other vehicles, saying, “They surround the city, and prevent civilians from leaving it. Recently, a family with a little child tried to leave the city in a car. However, they fired on the vehicle, killing at least two people. So-far unidentified people wearing black uniforms appeared at checkpoints around the city, we could suppose that those are Right Sector people. However, we lack exact data on that score yet. Besides that, we have information on them bringing artillery to Slavyansk and on them preparing positions for firing Grad systems”.

Editor:

Professional and trained security men would stop vehicles and check them. The junta is using Right Sector terrorists and Euromaidan thugs… which ups the bloodbath. Each person dead makes it less possible to find a compromise. Here’s the question… is the USA looking to purposefully destabilise the Ukraine and leave the junta in the lurch? Langley is capable of such… its actions in Iran, Cuba, and Chile are proof of that. However, Langley would sacrifice the Ukraine to nail down permanent American bases in the Baltics and Poland. It’s still a “bridge too far”, it’s still the wrong force in the wrong place at the wrong time, but it makes more sense than supporting a kleptocracy worse than the one it replaced (Yatsenyuk is worse than Yanukovich ever was, but he did kiss Condoleezza Rice’s ass, didn’t he?).
