The Bright Resurrection Brings Us a Day of Hope, Solidarity, the Affirmation of Eternal Values, and the Triumph of Justice

_________________________

Dear brothers and sisters, my comrades and friends!

We celebrate the Bright Resurrection of Christ, when life triumphed over the tragedy of death. During the upcoming Bright Week, we ever more clearly feel the unity of our citizens, so different, yet equally and passionately lovers of our Motherland, our history, our traditions, and our culture. Let us be united in joy and in sorrow, patient in trials, and persevering in our noble aspirations.

Recent events revealed the essence of all that accompanies us on the ascent towards Truth and the affirmation of the Good. Russia’s return to its mission as a great power sparked fierce opposition from our long-time enemies, whose weapons are lies, threats, defamation, and slander. However, we’ve already gone through that. One hundred years ago, 14 countries launched an intervention against young Soviet Russia. At that time, the new country issued a “Decree on Peace”, which was a call for all countries participating in the brutal war to begin peace talks immediately. The answer to this was intervention, an iron fist punched at our country. The ultimate goal of the intervention was to tear the country into pieces and have the forces of the interventionist countries control the remainder. However, from the taiga to the sea, the Red Army proved to be stronger than its foes were. Moreover, it was a new workers and peasants army, inspired by ideals of equality and social justice. The victory came not only from members of the oppressed strata of society, but tens of thousands of former tsarist officers, honest representatives of the once-well-to-do classes, and many foreigners united under the slogan “Hands off Soviet Russia!”

Furthermore, the solidarity of the working people and their love for the oppressed and besieged Fatherland prevailed over the interventionists. We stood and we won. In less than two decades, a new aggression leapt against our country, with most of the states of so-called “civilised” Europe taking part, whose leaders cowardly indulged the forces of evil, leading many to march under the banner of Hitler’s fascism. Again, we didn’t bow to their diktat, and as the great Pushkin said about the Napoleonic era in Europe, “our blood redeemed Europe with liberty, honour and peace”. Three-quarters of a century ago, at the Great Victory, again our state called for peace… “peace” was the first word written by Soviet children in their notebooks. The biggest sin is betrayal, but unrepentant sinners are even worse. Forgetting about their sins during the fascist era, our neighbours now trample on the past in hatred and insult the glory of their heroic compatriots who wiped absolute evil off the face of the earth at the cost of their blood. This is what F M Dostoyevsky said, who wrote about our nearest neighbours in The Diary of a Writer in 1877:

Maybe, for a whole century, or even more, they’ll tremble for their freedom and fear the power of Russia; they’ll curry favour with European states, they’ll slander Russia, gossip about it and intrigue against it … Of course, in a moment of serious misfortune, they’ll all certainly turn to Russia for help. No matter how they hate, gossip, and slander us in Europe, flirting with her and assuring her of love, but they’ll always instinctively feel something for us (of course, in a moment of trouble, but not before), that Europe is the natural enemy of their unity, it has and always will remain such, and if they exist in the world, then, of course, it’s because of the fact that Russia acts as a magnet, drawing them all to itself, which constrains their integrity and unity.

In our history, we aren’t the first to face furious pressure from our neighbours to our country. Moreover, we usually didn’t have to fight off the dark forces alone. Now, we don’t feel any support from the working people of those countries under the thumb of financial and oligarchic capital. The people remain silent, victims of social engineering and sophisticated methods of controlling the mass consciousness. Political technology replaces politics, information replaces knowledge; naked calculation and profit, not conscience, measures the actions of individuals and peoples. In such a situation, it isn’t easy to stop the procession of evil in the world. Being in the ring with multinational ill-wishers, as Russia’s philosopher Ilyin pointed up, the individual Russian and the Russian nation rallies and thus answers the challenges of the time. We are fully satisfied that the ideas of equality and social justice are at the forefront of our struggle and that the people’s expectations increasingly push the authorities to implement measures that facilitate the implementation of these requirements. We should say that the authorities try to respond to the urgent demands of the people. However, these are piecemeal measures; we need a long-term strategy.

We understand that half-hearted, partial, “cosmetic” measures won’t help us to transform the State into a truly socialist people’s state, when decision-makers aspire only, as Mayakovsky said, “to protect the safety of their familiar places”. It requires a hard-nosed attitude towards those who neglect the interests of the people and the state, which hinder the development of the country, which condone the plunder of its riches. We’ll continue to seek relentlessly to bring forward a humanistic view, to demand the implementation of the equality of all citizens of our state, to fight for equal access to its wealth, and to make those in power answer to the people for everything that happens in the country. Again, Russia needs to focus itself. For the sake of the good of the country, we must unite all our efforts and thoughts.

Congratulations on the Bright Resurrection to the clergy and laity of the Russian Orthodox Church, all Orthodox Christians, and to all people of goodwill! I wish peace to the peoples, happiness and family harmony to all citizens of our country, and new achievements on our path to revive our Motherland! Let the bright ideals of goodness, equality, justice, solidarity, and dignity, the eternal values of the Christian faith, become our communist ideal.

To the Resurrection of Christ!

8 April 2018. British Chem War Accusations Fall Apart… Russia and China Loudly Back DPRK… Russiagate Falling Apart… Zuckerberg Caught Selling Personal Info For Big Bucks… Israel Murders More Palestinians in Gaza… Of Course, the Russians are Using Chemical Weapons in Syria!

________________________

The Western narrative is falling to pieces. The Skripsal fairy tale is unravelling as it becomes clear that Russia had nothing to do with it. China and Russia are making loud noises about their support of the DPRK and their opposition to American aggression on the Korean peninsula. Sucky Zucky got caught peddling people’s personal information to fatten his bankroll and he gave away people’s personal info to the Hillarybots (he’s a fanatical supporter of the Clintons). Israel is shooting down Palestinian protesters in cold blood. Now, of course, the MSM claims that Russia is using chemical weapons in Syria. If you look at the above statements, you can see that the Deep State apparat is in the deep kimchi and it’s trying to divert the peasants’ attention. However, no one’s buying it (except for clueless Hillybilly fanatics). The present brouhaha will end like all the others. Russia, China, and Iran will stay united and the Deep State will back off, knowing that it’s facing an unbeatable foe.

Yet, there’s a wildcard in the mixture, I’m afraid… Trump. If Clinton were in the White House, I’d wager that Her Stupidity would have us already in an unwinnable war. Trump is just as unhinged, just as greedy, and just as power-mad… but he’s not a war-bitch like Hillary. He could go off the deep end, but he’s also aware that if he did, he and his rich pals would saw off the limb that they’re sitting on. He’s not bright, but he has survival instincts that Hillary lacks. There’ll be more bootless accusations in the MSM. I’d only worry if Trump actually moved what’s left of the US forces (and there isn’t much, conventionally speaking, left) on to alert. The USA has run on bluff and bullying weak nations since 1991. Russia, China, and Iran (and maybe Turkey, too) are demanding that the USA show its cards. It doesn’t have much, does it? Reflect on this… it never did, it was all bluff, hype, and bluster. Payback IS a motherfucker and we’re going to see how the Yanks react to being shown up as liars and braggarts.

8 April 2018. It’s Here… The Holiest of Holy Days for Orthodox Christians

________________________

It’s here. This day defines what we are as Orthodox Christians. As the Apostle wrote:

If Christ be not risen from the dead, your faith is in vain.

If you don’t confess this in your heart of hearts, you’re no Christian, no matter how many pro-life placards you wave, how many guns you own, how many Republicans you vote for, or how many “faggots” you’ve hated and scorned. If Christ be risen truly in your heart, people know it. Trust me, if He isn’t, people know that too. Follow real Christians like HH, who was friends with Comandante Fidel and is friends with Comrade Zyuganov and the rocker Kostya Kinchyov. He spends his holidays with the homeless, sick, and imprisoned. Now, there’s a Christian with the Risen Christ in his heart… may we do likewise! Say it loud:

Христосъ воскресе!

Воистинну воскресе!

This is why we believe and continue to believe. Stay focused, stay the course, and stand firm. The plug-uglies can’t win as long as we face forward and keep on truckin’. Take my hand… the road does twist, turn, and have its bumps and furrows…
