10 February 2018. You Can’t Please All of the People All of the Time

I got an amusing thing in my commboxes recently. I disabled “comments” long ago, so this person had to go back and find an old post that still had comments enabled. That wasn’t easy, kids! Why they did so is puzzling to me… I’m not important at all and they went to a great deal of trouble to diss me (so they thought). This Einstein wrote:

You are serving Satan.

They signed themselves:

Screaming Orgasm

What a maroon! If you take a stand on anything at all, you’ll attract opposition (note well that the above opponent lacked the guts to sign their real name and gave a bogus email address, too). If you look at the commboxes of most material posted on the web you’d find that most comments are meretricious tendentious rubbish posted by ignorant shit-fer-brains yahoos. Rightwingers are the most scurrilous… especially, the anti-Semitic lot. However, I find that “liberals” with their condescension and the “religious” with their self-righteousness are even worse (armchair theory-spouting “leftists” are in the same bag). The worst are Orthodox konvertsy, who throw hissy fits if you don’t agree with their mooning about Serafim Rose or their obsession with guns, gays, and abortion.

If you take a stand, someone is going to throw stones at you. Full stop. Pour yourself a measure of something good and smile. You can’t control anyone else or how they think of you. Full stop. Don’t be a childish moron like they are. You took a stand… someone attacked you. Grow up. As I like to say:

If you hate me and want to tear me down in public, you’re not the first. Join that long line on the right. However, before you do, notice that the line of those who support me, over there on the left, is equally long.

Keep your wits, keep focused, and SMILE. It riles ’em when they realise that they haven’t “made your day”. However, do take my hand… the times aren’t good and the road ahead is dark… only a joint effort will win the day. Reflect on that…

9 January 2018. “Ask a Genuine Orthodox Priest”… What an Imposture!

________________________

I saw a rancid little page on FB today… “Ask a Genuine Orthodox Priest”.

I shit you not!

ASK A GENUINE ORTHODOX PRIEST!

Of course, it’s a “closed” group, so none but the cognoscenti and approved pure ones can see the posts. We of the great unwashed don’t count, I guess. Need I say that the page is run by a bunch of schismo GOCs? GOCs are “Greek Old Calendarists”… they’re outside the Church and have no intention of reconciling with her. That’s to say, no decent Orthodox Christian, either Eastern or Oriental, should read or interact with these posturing scumbags.

I think it’s time to reiterate my standard warnings. Much of what’s posted on the internet as “Orthodox” isn’t official, it doesn’t reflect the teaching of the Church, nor does it have any oversight by our bishops or those delegated by them. Let me give you some examples… Fr Vazken is kosher… he appears on his diocese’s official website. Patriarchia.ru is kosher to the max… it’s the official MP website. Shevkunov’s website is dodgy… it isn’t official, and it mostly reflects the opinions of the Vorobyov Mafia (an archpriestly clique in Moscow). Russian Faith is rotten to the core, Hard Right bloviating in religious drag, and full of lies and distortions. It claims that the communists killed 300,000 priests. There were never more than 30,000 priests in Russia… so one can see that their lies aren’t only egregious, they’re sloppy in the extreme. Stay away from people like Freeman, Damick, Trenham, and Dreher… none of them have any higher studies in theology in an Orthodox institution (most only have an MDiv… some have worthless heretical formation).

DO YOU WANT REAL-DEAL GENUINE ORTHODOXY?

Go to a real-life Orthodox parish… go to the liturgy… be amongst your fellow Christians. THAT’S where “genuine Orthodoxy” exists and nowhere else. If you think that you’re going to find it on the internet… you silly wabbit, you! Most of what floats around in cyberspace isn’t truly Orthodox at all, it doesn’t have any higher validation… it’s just the opinion of this or that self-appointed guru. Go to your local parish and put a fin in the techka… it won’t be perfect, but it’ll be the Church and Christ IS in our midst there AND NOWHERE ELSE.

See ya in church on Sunday…

Russian Internet Providers Will Enter the DNR Market in 2016

01 hands typing on a computer

_____________________________

Today, DNR Minister of Communications Viktor Yatsenko announced at a press conference that Russian ISP providers would enter the domestic market next year:

Next year, we plan to start buying traffic from the Russian Federation. Ukrainian providers would remain in the Republic, but the price of Ukrainian ISP services has grown considerably. The Ukraine officially increased prices on internet traffic by 17 percent. This meant that the price rose to our operators, as we buy all internet access directly from the Ukraine. However, consumer internet access is much cheaper in the DNR than in the Ukraine. Access to services at speeds of 100 megabits per second is no more than 400 Roubles (41 Renminbi. 418 INR. 6.50 USD. 8.40 CAD. 9 AUD. 5.70 Euros. 4.20 UK Pounds), whereas, for example, in Kharkov, the price of this package is 250 Grivnya (732 Roubles. 75 Renminbi. 765 INR. 11.75 USD. 15.30 CAD. 16.40 AUD. 10.50 Euros. 7.70 UK Pounds), and 200 Grivnya (586 Roubles. 60 Renminbi. 612 INR. 9.40 USD. 12.25 CAD. 13 AUD. 8.40 Euros. 6.20 UK Pounds) in Dnepropetrovsk.

KPRF Launches “Krasnaya Liniya” (Red Line)… Online and Broadcast TV Outlet

00 The Whole Truth. 10.11.13

______________________________

The KPRF launched a new initiative… Красная Линия (Krasnaya Liniya: Red Line). It’s an online/broadcast TV media outlet. Here’s its mission statement on its website:

TV Channel Red Line is a new KPRF informational outlet, available to all internet users at www.rline.tv. Our main objective is to be a source of information, as well as a discussion platform, for intelligent thoughtful people concerned about the way Russia and the world will evolve in the coming years. Politics, economics, education, health, national defence, and public utilities are critical topics for modern Russian society. We’ll discuss these issues and propose ways to address them, giving the communist viewpoint, together with the views of independent experts and of activists of other political and public associations. Red Line will broadcast around the clock. Most of the airtime will be its own programming… documentaries, special reports, political talk shows, interviews with scientists, politicians, economists, and public figures, many of whom, for various reasons, have long been “blacklisted” on federal TV channels. The main goal in preparing programmes for broadcast is to give an alternative view of the current problems of society, different from that imposed on the viewer by state and right-liberal media. We’re adamant… modern audiences today sorely lack political, economic, and social reporting, along with heated discussions and comments. Red Line is ready to offer all of this to its viewers.

The lying CIA filth at Radio Liberty didn’t post this in its entirety. Here’s what it posted:

A statement on the channel’s website said, “Our mission is to become a source of information and a platform for discussions among smart, thinking people, who are not indifferent to the ways Russia and the world are developing” (compare this to my second sentence above).

The channel said it would be airing documentary films, special reports, political talk shows, and interviews with scholars, politicians, economists and public figures who “for various reasons have been blocked from access to federal channels”.

If you needed proof that Victor Potapov is a lying Republican POS propagandist… here it is. Note well that the Red Line post is 205 words, short enough to post in its entirety. Also, note that the Langley asshats didn’t give you a URL for Red Line, so that you could check things for yourself. This means that Potapov isn’t only base in motive (attacking the Motherland in the interests of Corporate America)… he’s a conniving Langley denizen who won’t give you “the truth and nothing but the truth”. He IS a smooth article and one of the most “sincere” and “convincing” salesmen out there. He does fool the superficial gullible (such as Freddy M-G and Dreher)… do remember Potapov’s vicious attack on the late Patriarch Aleksei in Georgetown… he does spring from the KONR milieu.

By the way, the RFE/RL translation is more “word-for-word” than mine is (I’m of the dynamic equivalence school)… that indicates an unskilled, inexperienced, or incompetent translator. It tells you much about their English language posts, doesn’t it?

Again, note the use of “liberal” in Russian terms to denote Anglosphere “conservatism”… that trips up Whiteford every time. Liberal = Rush Limbaugh… any questions?
