23 April 2016. It Was Seventeen Years Ago That Chilly Hilly Laughed at the Killing of Serbian Journalists in Their Studio… Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote for Soulless Fiends

A memorial to the murdered RTS staff… Chilly Hilly laughed at this and wants to repeat it. What does that tell you about her backers?


I saw this on FB:

17 years ago, 16 employees of the Radio-Television ‪#‎Serbia‬ lost their lives during the NATO bombing of ‪#‎Yugoslavia‬. On 23 April 1999, NATO hit the RTS studios with two devastating missile strikes. That was just one out of many civilian buildings bombed in 1999, and still no one from any of the NATO member states is held responsible for that crime. Those killed during the NATO attack were:

  • Jelica Munitlak (27)
  • Ksenija Banković (27)
  • Darko Stoimenovski (25)
  • Nebojša Stojanović (26)
  • Dragorad Dragojević (27)
  • Dragan Tasić (29)
  • Aleksandar Deletić (30)
  • Slaviša Stevanović ( 32)
  • Siniša Medić (32)
  • Ivan Stukalo (33)
  • Dejan Marković (39)
  • Milan Joksimović (47)
  • Branislav Jovanović (50)
  • Milovan Janković (59)
  • Tomislav Mitrović (61)
  • Slobodan Jontić (54)

Вечная память

There is something that you can do. One of the war criminals responsible for this criminal attack is running for US President. Don’t vote for Hillary Clinton. She laughed, not only at the death of these journalists, but at the Easter Bombing of Belgrade. What does that tell you about her backers (especially, those who claim to be Orthodox)? That’s sad, ain’t it? Remember to light a candle for the dead tomorrow… we’re Christians; that’s what we do.

Keep Chilly Hilly out of the White House.

Greetings and felicitations from the Evil Empire! SHUDDER!

Isn’t that a bit ridiculous… yet, both shades of Neoliberal filth (“conservative” and Liberal) broadcast lies about the USSR and about socialism. In fact, the Soviet people wanted peace… they had a disastrous war on their land and they didn’t want another. However, the Western corporate nabobs wanted MORE… so, the USSR had to defend itself against Western aggression and lies. They had to put much of their economic potential into defence to ward off Anglo threats. This is what Soviet people wanted… a peaceful life for their kids… a dignified retirement for their oldsters… a fair deal for everybody. Did they get that? Not completely… but the Anglos never tell you that the Affluent Effluent and the One Percent took more than their share of the West’s national wealth… so, things weren’t as rosy here as some claimed. However, it wasn’t as bad as the Neoliberal Hell ushered in by Reagan and cemented by the Clintons.

THIS is the true face of the USSR… aren’t you ashamed of having fallen for crapitalist lies about it (I am… I’m honest enough to admit it, too)…


23 April 2016. Tomorrow Is Palm Sunday… Holy Week Is Upon Us

Tomorrow is Palm Sunday… Holy Week is upon us. Technically, Lent ended on Friday… Lazarus Day and Palm Sunday are out-of-sequence… Holy Week is a separate entity in our liturgical and popular life. In the Orthodox countries, many people only really stick to the full regimen of abstinence during the first week of Lent (Clean Week) and during Holy Week. This is what’s actually out there. Of course, more than you might think do abstain from meat, eggs, and dairy products… but very, very few keep the fullness of the abstinence rules (which are monastic, not secular, after all). Therefore, the konvertsy caterwauling about people “not fasting” isn’t only out-of-place, it’s not in the Mind of the Church. The late Patriarch Pimen Izvekov blessed seminarians and lay workers at seminaries to eat fish during Lent… some loudmouths were causing trouble (just like they do here in the diaspora). In fact, even most monastics don’t keep the full rigour of the Fast… most monasteries require a monk or nun to ask permission to do so, and that permission isn’t always forthcoming.

So… Holy Week is upon us… Christ goes forth to His Voluntary Passion and Death… to culminate in the Feast of Feasts, the Festival of Festivals… Holy Easter… Holy Pascha… whatever you call it, it’s the Centre of Our Faith.


Connecting the Dots: Did Bernie Sanders Ever Really Have a Chance in New York State?

00 Get Off Your Ass and Vote! 25.04.15


Voter fraud is a major theme in this year’s election cycle. Whilst Republicans completely ignore voters, Democrats resort to other methods. The result? They use the ballot box to suppress the will of the people. The woman, on her to way to vote in the primary, checked all of her documents once again. Not too long ago, she’d moved, and although she’d notified the proper authorities of her change of address and re-registered with her party, she still wanted to make sure that she dotted her i’s and crossed her t’s. Once she got to her neighbourhood voting station, she went up to the man at the front desk, introduced herself, and asked for a ballot. The man looked over his list and frowned. Double-checking the name, he told her that she wasn’t on the list and asked if she’d registered. The woman exclaimed, “Yes!”… she told the man her story. Quickly looking at her watch, she realised that she didn’t have time to vote, because she was going to be late for work. Now, if you were in New York City last week, that could have been you, dear listener. The race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders was close, and probably much closer than media pundits would have you believe. However, why?

For starters, the Daily Beast posted this… “New York is a closed primary, where only registered Democrats can vote in the Democratic Primary… and voters had to be registered by last October”. So, it’s important to note that to blame the Republicans and their bag of tricks won’t work in New York. This is a strictly Democrat Party issue. So, what happened? The New York Daily News ran a story that dug a little deeper in the scandal. It wrote:

A spokesman for New York Attorney Eric Schneiderman said that his office received “by far the largest volume of complaints we’ve received for an election since Attorney General Schneiderman took office in 2011”. … Some polling sites didn’t open on time, citing too few election workers. Others had faulty voting machines, or were delivered half the number of promised voting machines.

That’s right. More sleight of hand to disenfranchise voters… but it get’s worse! In that very same Daily Beast article, a woman discovered that she not only can’t vote, but that she was registered as a Republican!

It was her 2004 voter registration, replete, she remembers, with her name, her social security number, her birthday… and someone else’s signature. (Get that? Someone else’s signature!) Sure enough, the signatures are strikingly different. Next to a box checked “Republican”, her 2004 signature is written in clear, deliberate, legible cursive and includes her middle name. Her more recent signature is a loopy, illegible scrawl. She insists she’s never changed it in her life, and says she can produce old tax forms to prove it.

If this is true, then this is a clear case of fraud. The case of the mistaken party identity could be explained, but the signature? Someone not only had to think of this plan, but had to literally get out a pen and put it to paper! To shed some light on just how massive this fraud was, WNYC reported, “126,000 Brooklyn Democrats had been removed from the voting rolls since last fall”. 126k people gone! That was just in Brooklyn! What about the other four boroughs and even the rest of the state? In fact, the very same thing just happened in Arizona. A story at Heavy noted:

Many are questioning the results of the Arizona primary, after rumours of potential election fraud started circulating. Reduced numbers of polling stations in Maricopa County resulted in long lines of up to 5 hours that may have prevented some people from being able to vote. In addition, there were concerns that some Democrats were reclassified as Republicans or Independents, forcing them to vote provisionally or not have their vote count at all.

This is a conspiracy that goes all the way to the top of the Democratic Party. Time and time again, across the country, Democrats get short-changed by their very own party and by the very same methods. Again, and again, and again. Seemingly, the will of the people is fine, as long as they all “choose” Hillary. If there ever was a lesson to be learned in this year’s election cycle, it’s the growing divergence between what the people of the 99 Percent think and what they say they want versus what the top One Percent, the insiders, the bankers, and the lobbyists want and think the nation needs.

So, what do you think dear listeners… “Did Bernie Sanders ever really have a chance?”
