This means that NO Russian Orthodox person can vote for or support the Republican Party in any way. I don’t care about the GOP’s “Pro-Life” bleats… the GOP hates our Motherland, its Civilisation, and its Faith; it wants to export to us its self-centred narcissistic greed (“the love of money is the root of all evil”… which convicts the GOP as theomachistic and anti-Christian). If you support the GOP, you spit on Christ and His Church. There’s no other way of putting it. The konvertsy and pigs like Paffhausen, Potapov, Trenham, and Dreher whore for the Republican Party… that should tell you about the depth of their Orthodoxy… very shallow, indeed.

MID Big sez We Should Punish Those Involved in Torture at CIA Secret Prisons

On Friday, Konstantin Dolgov, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) Human Rights Officer, spoke about CIA crimes on the British island of Diego Garcia, saying, “In recent days, Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to US Secretary of State Colin Powell, made known new testimonies of Britain’s participation in torture programs at CIA secret prisons outside the USA”. Dolgov pointed up that Wilkerson said US special services sources confirmed the information, including a CIA veteran who had been in the US global torture programme, saying, “Human rights activists say that Wilkerson’s statements offer us yet another confirmation of the fact that the British government covered up the truth about its role in CIA programmes, trying to avoid responsibility”. Earlier, Amnesty International noted that the British authorities soft-pedalled the case and they’d instructed the parliamentary committee on intelligence and security to investigate it, but preserved absolute freedom for them to hide the information. Wilkerson said that data on UK involvement in crude violations of human rights by the CIA disappeared from a recent report of the US Senate after British officials, with Home Secretary Theresa May on the list, held 24 rounds of consultations with the senators… authors of the document. Dolgov said, “We believe that attempts to withhold from the international community the gravest human rights violations, committed under the cover of the fight against terrorism, shed unfavourable light on both London and Washington, but they continue their blind-alley attempts to preach to the rest of the world how, in their opinion, everyone should respect human rights. We’re confident that to close the case means to bring the guilty to responsibility, but there’s still a long way to go”. Along with this, Dolgov said that the CIA promotes the perpetrators of torture; in Britain, Sir John Chilcot’s official inquiry is still some way off from publishing a report on how UK troops took part in the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Godless Neoliberal Republican Filth Want to Cut SSD… Where are “Consistent Life” and the Rest of the Pro-Lifers? THEY’RE MIA!

01 he ain't heavy he's my brother

Remember, for the Republicans, “Greed is Good”… and “He that doesn’t work, won’t eat”… both of which are un-Christian to the max. Yet… Consistent Life still supports greedster GOP pols and continues to associate with them.

On Thursday, US Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said during a floor speech that Republicans in US Congress are aiming to slash Social Security disability benefits by 19 percent next year, saying, “I wanted to discuss an issue of very serious concern to tens of millions of Americans, and that is the Republican effort to cut social security disability insurance benefits”, accusing the Republicans of trying to “lay the groundwork for a 19 percent cut in disability benefits next year”. Sanders explained that the House of Representatives adopted a rule on the first day of the new Congress that’d restrict the President’s ability to transfer funds from Social Security’s retirement account to the disability fund, noting, “Mr President, the Republicans are manufacturing a crisis where none exists”.

Sanders pointed up that since the 1960s, US presidents from both parties repeatedly employed this process to affect funds transfer into the disability account, stating, “There are some people who, sadly, are trying to divide the senior population from the disability population”. However, Republicans repeatedly expressed their concerns that Obama was unwilling to reduce or cap mandatory entitlement programs, as spending on Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare may nearly double over the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

On 25 January, media reports said that House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price said it wasn’t wise to continue to take from the Social Security trust fund to prop up the disability fund. In his 2016 budget, US President Barack Obama said that he’d oppose any measures that slashed Social Security benefits for future generations or reduced basic benefits for current beneficiaries. On Monday, US President Barack Obama submitted a nearly 4 trillion USD (269 trillion Roubles. 25 trillion Renminbi. 248 trillion INR. 5.02 trillion CAD. 5.14 trillion AUD. 3.54 trillion Euros. 2.63 trillion UK Pounds) fiscal budget proposal to Congress; law mandates that he present such a budget annually. In response to Obama’s proposal, Congress will send its version of a budget to the White House, which the president then has to sign-off on.

“Pro-Lifers” such as “Consistent Life” are shameless whores for Republican “conservatives”… so, I wouldn’t hold my breath as far as waiting for them to break with the GOP filth over the Republican war on the Social Safety Net. That’s nasty… allying with someone because they’re anti-abortion… but against everything else that Christ taught. That’s a clear sign of not only misplaced priorities, but also delusion on the most major scale. The Church teaches SYMPHONIA… the cooperation of Church and State, and that the state has a role, a major one, in our lives, both societal and personal. “Libertarianism” is nothing but rightwing anarchism… no Orthodox Christian can believe in it nor associate with its votaries without effectually denying their faith. That means that people like Fathausen aren’t only spoilt brats (he refused to live within the budget allotted him by the Holy Synod), they’re heretics of the most noisome sort… for they oppose Symphonia, a basic and foundational teaching of the Church. We do live in a crank world…
