Top Hillary Surrogate Accuses “Trump and His Friend Putin” of “Founding ISIS”

If Russian soldiers are dying in Iraq to extirpate ISIS, it’s clear that the HillyBillys are chock fulla shit… as per usual…


Taking to the Sunday show circuit, US Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) ran roughshod over any semblance of logic or foreign policy coherence by associating Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with Daesh/ISIS to make the fantastical cognitive leap that Russia “founded” the terror group. On Sunday morning, the Clinton campaign established a new low in American political thought. They somewhat miraculously found a way to link their anti-Russian propaganda campaign, one that calls for sanctions against Russia, despite that there’s no evidence that Russia has any link to the WikiLeaks file-dump exposing corruption in the Democratic Primary, to the latest topic of the hour, the Daesh/ISIS terror network.

Not since the Bush II administration have the American people been bombarded with such circuitous fits of repetitive illogical statements… at that time, it was macabre insinuations that somehow Saddam Hussein had links to the 9/11 terror attacks to secure a blank cheque for war… for the purpose of personal political gain at the risk of compromising not only national, but international security. A top mouthpiece for the Clinton campaign when they want to offload incendiary statements into the public sphere to test-poll their efficacy, Senator McCaskill began her interview on Fox News Sunday criticising Trump’s comments on Daesh calling them, “disrespectful to the military that is out there fighting ISIS every day”, she suggested that the Republican lacks the requisite patriotism for the Oval office. She went on to claim:

It was also important to realise that [Syrian President Bashar al] Assad, by what he did in his country, allowed ISIS to move into Syria, get strongholds, and recruit. That was the work and support of [President V V] Putin, who is Trump’s best buddy. So, you can say Trump and his friend Putin are the founders of ISIS.

McCaskill’s assertion directly conflicts with a declassified Pentagon memo, released last May, which exposed that al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) and the Islamic State of Iraq spearheaded the American-backed anti-Assad coalition at the time; they soon coalesced to form the Daesh terror network known colloquially as ISIS. At the time, President Obama referred to these “opposition rebels” as “the legitimate representative of the Syrian people”. The report also posited the formation of a Daesh “caliphate” in Syria, stating:

There’s the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria (Hasak and Der Zor) and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want.

An earlier paragraph enumerated these supporting powers as “Western Countries, the Gulf States, and Turkey”. As of August 2016, there were 20 officially confirmed dead in the Russian forces on the battlefields of Syria. They died to prevent the Daesh terror network and so-called “moderate rebels” factions (spearheaded on the ground by former al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front) from overrunning Syria. Senator McCaskill questioned how American soldiers in the field of fight feel when Trump criticises Obama administration foreign policy, but one can only imagine the horrendous magnitude of her insult to the families of the Russian soldiers slain trying to protect the world from radical Jihadists.

14 August 2016. A Kind Word on “Morality”

00 charity action feed the hungry in donetsk. st luka. 280815

Jill agrees with us on this… remember, if someone agrees with you on “everything”, they’re either crazy or kissing your ass. If we can agree on what’s in front of us, we can work together. The late great Ed Koch said that… it was true 30 years ago… it’s true now. If you want perfection… you belong either in a rubber room or in a monastery hidden in the hills. ‘Nuff said…


His Holiness said, “The Church respects all human decisions, including those of sexual orientation. We reserve the right to call sin ‘sin'”. The rightwing “conservative” moralists amongst us are wrong and HH is right. The Church doesn’t bar homosexuals from the Mysteries… it communes adulterers and greedy people, who are far worse than homosexuals are… the Apostle called Greed (not homosexuality) the root of many evils. Note well that those who posture on “morality” are soft on warmongers, crapitalism, and capital punishment (historically, the Church preached vigorously against the last). I’ll believe the righties as soon as they preach the full Orthodox message, which includes a scepticism to capitalism (His Holiness calls it a fraud), an opposition to the death penalty reiterated in recent documents (best put by Metropolitan Filaret Vakhromeyev of Minsk), and a firm stance against warmongering in foreign parts. Betcha the righties approve of Republican warmongers because they’re “pro-life”… is that ironic, humorous, or just plain evil?

Oppose the Neoliberal Anti-Life Programme… be it put forth by a Republican, Democrat, or Libertarian. The only American political candidate with a modicum of resemblance to the social vision of the Church as put forth by such legit authorities as Bishop Panteleimon Shatov (the Church’s “tsar” of charity and social services) is Jill Stein. Her pro-choice plank doesn’t negate the 90 percent of her platform that agrees with our views on society, the state, the economy, and the environment. We aren’t and can’t be single-issue voters. If you do that, you become a victim of Satan’s wiles… he loves to bait his traps with objectively good things.

There’s no perfect political faction this side of the veil. If you want to be in step with HH and what he believes, VOTE GREEN. After all, he sent birthday greetings to Comrade Fidel, not “conservative” filth like Ted Cruz or Pence of Indiana. Reflect on it and get with the programme. If you’re Christ’s Partisan, you’ll vote Green and nothing else.

It IS in our hands


Voting for “Anyone But Clinton” Means You’re Obviously a “Russian Agent”

squirrel spy


You should think twice before getting in Hillary Clinton’s way to the Oval Office. Literally overnight, you could find yourself converted into a Kremlin stooge. It appears that Clinton’s campaign slogan actually reads:

Whoever isn’t with me is a Russian agent.

The Clinton camp is obviously following Joseph McCarthy’s example by branding anyone who stands in their way a “Russian agent”. Thus, unsurprisingly, they recently branded Donald Trump (Hillary Clinton’s major competitor in the 2016 US Presidential race) as a “Kremlin stooge”. An eerie McCarthy-styled new ad, released by Clinton campaigners, manipulates viewers into believing that Russia may be backing Donald Trump, which “is trying to influence” the US presidential election.

“McCarthyism” is a term used to describe the practice of making accusations of subversion without any regard for evidence. Likewise, the Clinton camp doesn’t bother to find any evidence to confirm their allegations. British political analyst (and regular contributor to Sputnik) Finian Cunningham noted in one of his latest articles:

Donald Trump has entered a political kill zone. The American establishment is lining up to take him out. We’re talking here in virtual terms… at least, thus far.

However, according to Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept, Trump isn’t the only target of Democrats:

This smear tactic extends far beyond Trump. They now use it to vilify anyone perceived to be an impediment to Clinton’s victory. When WikiLeaks published thousands of DNC emails, voices instantly emerged claiming that the Russians organised the leak. Democrats not only treated this evidence-free conspiracy theory as Truth, but… following the Clinton campaign… proceeded to smear WikiLeaks as a Kremlin operation. They turned a deaf ear to the US intelligence community statement, “We haven’t drawn any evidentiary connection to any Russian intelligence service and WikiLeaks”.

That isn’t all… the Democrats went even further and branded media outlets and journalists who shed light on the leaked DNC emails’ content as “Kremlin weapons”, including The Intercept. One would be surprised to know that they found yet another “Russian agent” … inside the Democratic Party. When Bernie Sanders looked earlier this year to be the one who was standing in Clinton’s way, slimy suggestions began emerging of his dark connections to Russia, revealing that Sanders was “linked to Communists” by pro-Clinton media pundits who cited his decades-old praise of Castro and the Sandinistas.

As if that wasn’t enough, Clinton supporters also called Jill Stein (the Green Party candidate) a “Kremlin tool” after she rose in the polls. On Saturday, the pro-Clinton AMERICAblog alleged that the Green Party candidate joined the dark side. Last year, Stein attended a conference organized by Russia Today in Moscow. However, John Aravosis of AMERICAblog highlighted that’s only half the story:

Vladimir Putin himself joined Stein and other attendees for dinner.

Aravosis claimed that Stein lambasted the USA and remained mute on Russia’s “horrific lack of respect for human rights”, referring to her anti-war video message. That was enough for Aravosis to label the Stein as a Russian “propaganda tool”. Glenn Greenwald tweeted:

Was only a matter of time before Jill Stein was smeared as a disloyal Kremlin-sympathiser (tweet is 100% false).

However, Greenwald pointed up that one could hardly call Stein a Russian apologist. Although she called upon Moscow and Washington to team up in Syria to settle the crisis and criticised the USA for embarking on a 1 trillion USD (64.8 trillion Roubles, 6.65 trillion Renminbi. 67 trillion INR. 1.296 trillion CAD. 1.308 trillion AUD. 896 million Euros. 774 million UK Pounds) programme to update its nuclear weapons, she likewise criticised Russia for “diverting scarce resources into military spending while its people suffered”. Nevertheless, who in the Clinton camp cares what Stein really meant? Pro-Clinton journalists and media pundits rushed to accuse the Green party politician of being an “agent of the Kremlin”.

Interestingly enough, after Sputnik turned the spotlight on Aravosis’ opinion piece, Aravosis journalist presented it as yet more “proof” of Stein’s coöperation with Russia:

The Kremlin is now defending Stein, and attacking me, because of this article. That speaks volumes about just how important a tool Putin finds Stein for both his propaganda war and for helping Trump this election.

Greenwald riposted:

That’s the Democratic Party’s approach to the 2016 election. They vilify those who question, criticise, or are perceived to impede Hillary Clinton’s smooth entitled path to the White House as stooges, sympathisers, and/or agents of Russia… Trump, WikiLeaks, Sanders, The Intercept, Jill Stein. Other than loyal Clinton supporters, is there anyone left who isn’t covertly controlled by or in service to The Russkies? Following the Democrats’ flawed logic, one might begin suspecting Hillary Clinton or even Barack Obama of covertly collaborating with the Kremlin.

Citing a New York Times 2015 report, Greenwald recalled:

The Clintons were at the centre of a deal that gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the USA. Furthermore, Mr Clinton received 500,000 USD (32.4 million Roubles, 3.325 million Renminbi. 34 million INR. 648,000 CAD. 654,000 AUD. 448,000 Euros. 387,000 UK Pounds) for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.

As for Barack Obama, he repeatedly opposed US hawks’ plan to unleash an all-out war against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and to deliver lethal weapons to the Ukrainian government. Moreover, back in 2012, Obama mocked Mitt Romney, who branded Russia as the USA’s “biggest geopolitical threat” by saying:

The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.

It is worth mentioning that while Romney was beating the war drums about a non-existent “Russian threat”, the New York Times wrote in November 2012:

His son Matt Romney travelled to Moscow seeking Russian investors for his California-based real estate firm just days before his father was to wrap up a campaign in which he vowed to take a tougher stance with the Kremlin.

Cunningham emphasised:

Whilst the US media evokes the spectre of McCarthyism, it remains silent on more-sordid stories, which it should tell. It’s ironic really, given that there are so many more sordid stories on Clinton, given her involvement in warmongering, clandestine régime-change operations, and abuse of state secrecy for her own self-aggrandisement with foreign sources of money.

14 August 2016. A Point to Ponder From HH…

00 Patr Kirill 01 130816


There are loopy wing-nut crazies amongst us who claim that the Church teaches Young Earth Creationism and they denigrate the findings of modern science. Nothing is further from the truth. Don’t follow the rightwing asshats. Follow His Nibs and what he teaches… that IS the Church’s teaching. You don’t have to check your reason and intelligence at the door to be in Christ’s Church… in fact, I’d say that the opposite is more the case…

Have a care, phonies and charlatans are about…
