10 May 2015. A Vote for Bernie is a Vote for the Truth… Plus, Why I Do What I Do

News is NOT accounts of this or that politician… news is NOT titbits about this or that empty celebrity… news is NOT some general showing off his latest toys. News IS the repair of a damaged bridge… news IS the baking and sale of subsidised bread to the modest of means… news IS the delivery of needed humanitarian supplies to those in need of them. News is NOT provided by talking heads in the District or in the Corporate Media. News DOES come from places where “reporters” and “journalists” never tread… when’s the last time that you saw a reporter in Mayfield PA or in Amsterdam NY? Hell, you don’t even see journalists in Bennington VT or even Albany NY! Schenectady NY is a joke to such people and Saratoga Springs NY only exists in August. NO WESTERN REPORTER WRITES FROM DONETSK OR LUGANSK. NONE. They just pass on Kiev bullshit just as uncritically as they pass on Washington’s spin. During the Vietnam War, reporters weren’t as knackered. Today, they all fear losing “credentials”… “Oh, dear… the Ministry of Truth won’t keep me on!” If you don’t toe the line, you’re out of a job. That’s why I have utter contempt and no respect for Victor Potapov, Rod Dreher, Freddie M-G, Serge Schmemann, Sofiya Kishkovskaya, and Terrence Mattingly… they all willingly take part in the Corporate Deception Machine in one capacity or another. They all eagerly and willingly take on Caiphas’ pieces of silver… “They had to”, don’t you know…

I’ll confide that most people no longer trust in the bought n’ paid-for whores of the corporate media… no one believes them… no one. They can beat the drums all day for this or for that… no one bloody cares. As for those beating the war-drums against Russia, it’s a case of “Crying Wolf” once too often. People are simply bone-weary of warfare and want their sons safe at home, not in harm’s way as an aggressor in some far-off foreign part. Most people want us to see to our own needs… to see to the needs of ordinary people, not the grasping wants of the Oligarch class and their upper-middle agents and vultures.

That’s why I LIKE reporting the “mundane” news from the Peoples Republics… no, it’s not as “exciting” as the war news is, but it’s exciting in a far better way. People are doing their damnedest to build a fairer society than the one imposed by the USA. They know what’s wrong with the oligarchs… they know what was wrong in the Soviet system. The Republican Party hates the fact that the patriots concluded that the least-wrong system was the socialist Soviet system (all the possible alternatives had flaws, but the Soviet model had the least). The people WANT a Peoples Republic. They showed that in decreeing “Republic’s Bread” to have reasonably priced food for those on fixed-incomes. They willingly carry the Red Banner and they carry icons, too! They nationalised the holdings of the oligarchs… who were nothing but thieves of state property, upheld by the Western rich. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? If like calls unto like, and shitbirds of a feather flock together, what does that tell us about the Western Affluent Effluent?

That’s why I’m doing my best to cover a small part of the world. I’m translating material from the DNR and LNR media. Listen to what they have to say. They’ve earned the right to speak via their sacrifice, blood shed, and pain endured. I’m honoured to be able to present it to you in the English language. No, it isn’t ALL that I do… but it’s something that I do daily… it’s an obligation, a duty to my coreligionists, compatriots, fellow leftists, and  coeval strivers for justice. The price of bread is DOWN in Lugansk and Donetsk… it is UP in Kiev. Wages and pensions are down (or not paid) in Kiev… wages and pensions continue in Lugansk and Donetsk. Indeed, the story of the LNR and the DNR is a very “American Success” story… an underdog succeeding against all the odds, who makes it work due to grit and determination. Yet, the news media treats them like subservient nigger slaves… no, even worse. They’re supposed to be GRATEFUL to the Americans for having sicced the oligarchs and their Uniate nationalist bully-boys on them.

I am going to carry on as long as God gives me health and strength. If the patriots in the DNR and LNR can spill their blood in the cause of freedom, then, I can take time and translate and write. I bow before them. May God bless you all. May next Victory Day see Peace… a Just Peace… a Peace where the “Ukrainian” aggressor is no longer squatting on the Russian Land, not able to bother Holy Rus and its People. I pray for this… so should you. GOD BLESS THE PATRIOTS OF NOVOROSSIYA. I love all of you and have you in my thoughts always. You DO have a friend.

As it was… as it is… as it ever shall be…
