13 July 2015. Translated Russian Demot… Something that’s Making the Rounds in the Russian Web

00 good luck


Here’s a little sweet something that’s going the rounds in the Russian web. I spend most of my online time in the Russian cyberworld… it’s given me a feel for the “rocks n’ shoals” and for what’s legit. Some sources are completely on the “Up-and-Square”… others… well, they make The Onion look like a staid media outlet. For instance, today, I saw an image of a supposed “cross procession for peace in Odessa”… my research turned up the fact that the image was from THREE YEARS AGO and there wasn’t any such image on the official diocesan website. Please, have a care with those people without Russian facility or without knowledge of the Russian cyberworld posting this or that image or story… all too often, they get gulled. That’s why I vet things thoroughly.

Do have a care with anything posted by Orthodox konvertsy… much of it isn’t what it purports to be, and in some cases, there’s bad translation. This plagues the “English” sides of Pravmir and Pravoslavie… yes, they look fancy, but they’re not official, and they both have agendas. Also, there’s a spectrum of POVs in the Mother Church, but the konverts only present the most strident rightwing asshats (or legit spokesmen badly translated). Please, take a care with it all, especially, now, as events are beginning to spin out of control.

However, not everything on the Russian web is serious… I wonder… has this demot made its way to the American web? Perspirin’ minds wanna know…



13 July 2015. Translated Russian Demot… The Russian Army Has a Secret Weapon

The last time that the USA faced peer opponents was in the Korean War, where the Soviet VVS* and Chinese People’s Volunteers beat the Anglo bastards to a standstill. Today, it’s been sixty-two years since the USA was in a “fair fight”. The Anglos have gotten complacent and “fat n’ sassy”. They’re using “on the cheap” weapons like attack drones, armed Hummers, and Stryker “APCs”… all of which are worthless in a real stand-up fight with a real foe. No American soldier has withstood a real artillery barrage for YEARS. It’s one thing to fight small-unit guerilla wars… it’s quite another to fight battles involving multiple divisions, helicopter regiments, and air divisions.

America had best pull back from the precipice. If any Anglo had the brass to step one millimetre over the Russian border… as D K Kiselyov put it, “Russia has the capability of turning the American heartland into a burnt-out radioactive cinder”. Note well that the USA put Dmitri Konstantinovich on the sanctions list… for simply speaking the truth. The Anglos are irresponsible hubristic children led by incompetent warmongers (McCain or Chilly Hilly… Biden or Cruz… what’s the bloody difference?).

Russia is ready to fight… it has the means to do so… America’s sole advantage, naval superiority, is worthless against a continental foe. May God have mercy on us and spare us Armageddon… yes, kids, I’m NOT joking…

00 e a basurin. 130715


Today, Colonel E А Basurin, DNR Deputy Defence Minister, told us that Right Sector extremists involved in the junta aggression against Novorossiya are deserting their positions at the demarcation line, saying, “Right Sector elements in units traipse off to Kiev at their leaders’ urging. Therefore, ceasefire violations suddenly decreased, in only one day”. Earlier, Ukrainian media reported that Right Sector elements left their positions on the demarcation line. This happened after clashes in Mukačevo in Podkarpatskaya Krai between Right Sector thugs and local cops ended in bloodshed.  In response, the Right Sector held rallies in support of its militants in Mukačevo in several Ukrainian cities, including at the Presidential Administration in Kiev.
