12 February 2017. The Church Is NOT Rightwing… Konvertsy Rants to the Contrary Notwithstanding

_________________________________________

Rod Dreher (and those of his ideological deformation) claim that the Church and the rightwing are soulmates… natural allies. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Look at the above image and be enlightened. The Church does NOT endorse, teach, or bless the evil spouted by Anglosphere “conservatives”. In particular, it condemns the Free Market that’s at the very centre of “conservative” “thought”. You may follow Archbishop Iakovos Koukouzis or you may follow Pat Buchanan, the author of the racist “Southern Strategy” and the arranger of Reagan’s visit to Bitburg (with its SS graves). Rod Dreher follows Pat Buchanan (and takes Buchanan’s money)… I follow Archbishop Iakovos.

Whom do you follow? You can’t follow both… they’re incompatible. Choose wisely…

Sputnik Editor-in-Chief Gives Some Advice to the “Dear CIA”

00-usa-cia-biter-bit-120217

____________________________________

On Sunday, RT and Sputnik Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said that the Western establishment considers Russia “abnormal” by default and gave the CIA some caustic advice on how to prevent Russia from being perceived as “normal” in the West. Simonyan wrote in her blog:

For the majority of the Western Establishment, the idea that Russia is normal is as wild as the suggestion that the Earth is square… Everyone stopped caring about facts long ago. There’s a conclusion that Russia is abnormal with all that follows. Facts have to be adjusted to fit the conclusion.

According to the RT editor-in-chief, part of the Establishment’s dislike for US President Donald Trump stems from his seeming willingness to review the relationship with Russia. Simonyan gave a few acerbic recommendations to the CIA on how to ensure that the public opinion of Russia doesn’t change, including constant reminders about hackers and Trump’s relations with Moscow:

Remind people about the cunning of RT and Sputnik. Use the most fear-inducing vocabulary. There’s no need to look for a newsworthy event, the people are used to it.

She cited the example of NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu calling Sputnik “part of the propaganda machine” in an interview with the BBC. Simonyan added sarcastically that a political assassination of a prominent activist or a politician would be a fail-safe way to avoid normalising relations with Russia and suggested that the CIA arrange that, noting that she made her suggestion “in an ironic context” and it was in no way an actual call for action.

On 6 January, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released a report saying US intelligence agencies, including the CIA, had a high degree of confidence that Russia meddled in the US presidential election. On 7 January, Simonyan said that the report was poorly prepared and jokingly offered some facts the CIA could use in future.

My, my, my, the CIA complains of “Russian meddling in the US Presidential election”… I seem to recall that’s a favourite Langley tactic… meddling in foreign elections or overthrowing people that the US Deep State doesn’t like. I seem to recall that V F Yanukovich was the legitimate President of the Ukraine… didn’t Langley have a hand in his overthrow, kids? It seems to me that Langley is lying, yet again. Do note what they’re saying… “Donald Trump isn’t the legit prez because the Russians interfered”.

Stay tuned… the poker game between Trump and the Deep State has only begun…

The Donbass People’s Fortress Honours the Remembrance of Its Lost Commanders… What Panic?

00-dnr-russia-motorola-funeral-120217

The funeral procession for A S Pavlov (“Motorola”) in Donetsk… can you believe that Langley and its Galician Uniate nationalist stooges are passing the lie that Russia killed him? If you needed proof that the Anglos and their Uniate/schismo running dogs are living in Cloud-Cuckoo Land, that fills the bill. Delenda est “Anglo hegemony”…

_____________________________________

Just in the past few months, the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) and its armed forces lost two remarkable battalion commanders and national heroes, “Givi” (M S Tolstykh) and “Motorola”, both assassinated far behind the Donbass frontline. Likewise, only about a week ago, the Lugansk People’s Republic (LNR) just witnessed the same kind of terakt*, when the famous Colonel Oleg Anashenko perished when a bomb ripped his car apart. All of these brutal killings were due to “legal” state terrorism, carried out by the Ukrainian special services against the Donbass people. Yes, all the tears that people shed in the Donbass because of our latest losses could make a heavy rainfall.

  • Terakt: Russian acronym for “terrorist action”

In both the DNR and LNR, terrorism alerts were at the highest level as they mourned their great heroes. The latest wave of terror attacks follow a horrific week, Ukrainian forces struck in the early hours of 29 January, which led to a veritable terror shelling of Donbass civilians for several days, after which our forces repelled Ukrainian infantry attacks. The junta forces used heavy artillery, mortars, Grad MRLs, and even heavy Uragan MRLs directly against civilian districts in Donetsk. The OSCE failed totally to report the key reasons for the escalation and after keeping its mouth totally shut during the first days, the western media started an information campaign against the DNR and LNR People’s Forces. Yet again, the pro-Ukrainian western propaganda machine made the victims into the aggressors, and the western media whitewashed Ukrainian attacks and war crimes. Frankly speaking, AP-Reuters-et al failed to publish anything that’d be even close to the truth, and by hiding the first crucial 36 hours of extreme Ukrainian provocations, the truth was again the first victim of an information war waged against Russia and (especially) the Donbass people.

FACT: RUSSIA ISN’T A PARTY TO THE DONBASS WAR

In the aftermath, we saw how NATO blatantly accused Russia for causing the latest escalation between the Ukraine and the Donbass People’s Republics. The Ukrainian prime minister, a real war criminal, stood next to the deputy head of NATO in Brussels, trying to convince, without showing any evidence, an international audience “that the Ukraine and the Kiev régime is a victim of Russian aggression”. What crap! Certainly, you should ask, “What Russians, how and where?” Still, the undeniable fact is that there aren’t Russian troops in the DNR and LNR, although this is difficult for westerners to believe. However, I learned here in Donetsk (and the administration well understands) that the Kremlin only has limited political influence over the decision-making processes in the independent, democratic, and powerful new People’s Republics. Always, when any westerner mentions Russia and Donbass, you should keep in mind that the Minsk Agreements and signed documents between the Ukraine and the DNR/LNR don’t even mention Russia. Why is that so? It’s because Russia has the same status as Germany and France as conflict mediators… nothing more, and nothing less. Behind the geopolitical brouhaha, everyone knows that it’s a fact that Russia isn’t a party to the war in the Donbass. I hope that you won’t fall like sheep poisoned with war propaganda.

PANIC HERE IN DONETSK AND LUGANSK?

Today, the Ukraine masses troops and heavy weapon systems along the frontline. Attack preparations and daily use of these weapons are against the Minsk Agreements, but the blind, useless, and shameful OSCE Monitoring Mission keeps its mouth shut, always looking the other way, it de facto serves only the interests of the West and its puppet régime in the Ukraine. Yes, we know the Ukraine will attack again soon, and they’ll terrorise us repeatedly, without mercy, and we can only expect another western-backed storm of fire to pound civilian neighbourhoods of Fortress Donbass. Here, in Donetsk, no one is safe… we’ve learned that very well. You could easily think that after two nasty weeks of Ukrainian terror, while we sit and wait for the next great escalation of the conflict to begin again, that the DNR and LNR would certainly be panicking. From what I see, it’d be only logical to expect such a thing! Damn, yes, we’re worried here, mostly because all these innocent civilians and children face terrible situations because of state terrorism, but as yesterday’s funeral of commander “Givi” again showed to us, at the same time, we’re more confident and determined in our common stance against the Ukrainian terror in a true united people’s resistance. Yesterday, on Friday, even in such cold weather and with the risk of another possible terror attack by Ukrainian forces on the crowd, the DNR showed again how strongly united the people are with our heroes-in-arms. After an intensive Ukrainian terror bombardment in the DNR, after the assassination of commander “Givi”, after the highest defence and terror alerts from the DNR’s top leadership and state media, tens of thousands of regular citizens came forward to show respect for our fallen battalion commander. The people are the source of the DNR People’s Forces, they praise them, and “We’re all as one”.

FORTRESS DONBASS: THE WEST SHOULD TAKE A LESSON

The image of Motorola’s funeral shows something that everyone should learn about the Donbass People’s Republics, especially, the Ukraine, the EU, and NATO-countries, which still advocate the use of military force against the Donbass people. I need to ask, how on Earth could any person with some sense in their head even think that anyone can beat the united Russian people in the former Ukraine? Yes, we should be concerned and look for a path to the peaceful political settlement of this terrible conflict in Europe, as all civilised people should, but in fact, no matter what kind of state terrorism and military offensive the western-backed Ukrainian forces, which stand today at the gates of Fortress Donbass, wage against us, there isn’t any fear in Donetsk. “Donbass Holds!” Moreover, we don’t need Russia to maintain the strength of the Donbass People’s Forces. Now, I want to tell you something that I learned here in Donetsk over the past two years. It’s about the thousands of coal miners who are the true core and muscle of the DNR/LNR People’s Forces. These guys are defending their homes. Yes, the miners really are tough guys, they can take any shit, and they’re always ready to give needed lessons to their enemies. Keep in mind that the Donbass population has a lot of these tough guys, hardened by extreme working conditions, working one kilometre underground… they’re the heart of the Donbass.

FACT: THE RUSSIAN ARMY ISN’T NEEDED IN THE DONBASS

When the western-backed Ukrainian régime collapses, their own destructive orders to attack will crush the Nazi forces in the “Ukrainian National Guard”. Then, great internal problems [in the Ukraine] would follow. If the DNR/LNR forces counterattack with their mechanised brigades, the Donbass guys and volunteers would start a long march to the West. Remember that the Donbass People’s Forces don’t really need Russia (or the Russian forces) to execute major manoeuvres against the already-failed Ukrainian state and its army. Of course, if there is a DNR/LNR counterattack, the pro-Ukrainian propaganda machine of the NATO, the EU, and the USA will again scream loudly, “Russia’s attacking!” However, just keep calm, and follow the news sources from Donetsk and Lugansk. It’d be payback time for the thousands of trained, motivated, and armed Donbass miners, who today patiently wait for diplomatic solutions. The truth has been the first victim of the war in the Donbass, but as the people will prevail in the end, the truth will prevail with overwhelming strength as well. The Donbass will certainly hold out, but it’s also every day more ready to expand, to liberate the western-occupied regions of the historic Russian land, and that means all of Novorossiya.

In the shared memory of our lost heroes, Givi, Motorola, Oleg Anaschenko, and so many others, the people’s fortress in the Donbass only gets stronger!

If the USA thinks that their so-called “NATO allies” are ready to be cannon-fodder for American delusions, they had best think again. The neoliberals (both “conservative” and “liberal”) share the same fancy. They believe that foreigners will die for American foreign policy aims, obviating the need to rely on such politically explosive methods such as conscription in the USA. Since the end of Vietnam, the USA has relied on a mercenary army… if there were a real war, the USA would be up Shit Creek without a paddle… there’d be no reserves to replace losses.

I somehow get the impression that Slovaks have no desire to die for American hegemony… I confide that they’re probably not alone in thinking that way…
