19 February 2018. THIS is the Spirit of Russia… Hillarybots and Trumpkins Beware

________________________

We’re hearing a crescendo of Russophobic nonsense from politicians and media pundits. I’d remind them that Russia usually defeats all comers. The USA threatens Russia with NATO… I seem to remember that the German fascists had “allies”, too. Marshal Zhukov found them easy meat because Romanians, Magyars, and Italians didn’t fancy to die on the Russian steppe for German gain. I’d say that their grandsons feel the same way about dying for America’s gain. That’s how the Sovs encircled Stalingrad… Zhukov smashed through sectors of the line held by reluctant Romanian, Magyar, and Italian troops. The USA has a relatively small and weak army for its size. It’d have to rely on NATO troops to hold most of the line… in short, the USA doesn’t have the objective conventional strength to threaten the DPRK, let alone the PRC or the Russian Federation. That’s why Trump and Hillary rant about the nuclear option… the USA lacks the boots on the ground to fight a medium-size power, let alone more major players such as Russia, China, or Iran.

Besides all that, the spirit of the Lysenko brothers still lives. It showed at the Roki Tunnel during the South Ossetia conflict, where Russian troops defeated American PMC mercs (actually, US special oppers technically “discharged”, but let’s not bring that one up). It showed in the Crimea, where Russian forces executed a swift and bloodless takeover of the peninsula after the American-fomented coup (whose aim was to seize Sevastopol… that failed, didn’t it?). It showed at the Donetsk Airport, where the Donetsk homeboys and the Cossacks waxed the asses of American and Polish “mercs” (again, special oppers “discharged” for deniability purposes). It looks like the Yanks had mucho bad luck… you can see why they’re being so nasty… they can’t win against Russians in a real stand-up fight. Again… the aggressors in Washington don’t seem to understand that the spirit of the Lysenko brothers still lives… their bumbling aggression has done nothing but alert the Bear (and his allies) to the danger from the narcissistic Yank toddlers.

I’d say that the “sole superpower” isn’t what it claims to be… its opponents are on their guard and have their defences up. Don’t listen to the Russophobes. They want your sons to die on the Russian steppe for their gain. Their sons? Why, they’ll be safe in college, getting plastered and fucking coeds. “Only the little people pay taxes”… or… “The little people will feel the pain for our gain”. Wonderful thing, “democracy”, isn’t it?

Forgiveness Sunday

________________________

It’s no surprise, Orthodox Christians are keen on the Rite of Forgiveness and the service that surrounds it… here’s a little more about this observance. It’s the last Sunday before the start of Lent, so the Rite of Forgiveness occurs during Vespers before the cross and the icons of the Saviour and the Most-Holy Birthgiver. By the way, the rite is very evocative. Firstly, the priest asks for forgiveness. He makes a reverence before the holy things and kisses them; then, he asks forgiveness from the clergy and believers. After that, all present ask forgiveness from one another. On this day, we can bring to those near us our sincere repentance for all our voluntary and involuntary sins so that we can remove the heavy stone of guilt from ourselves. Of course, we heartily forgive everybody else. Because of this, God forgives us and this puts us right with Him. The clergy are in dark vestments to remind us that the Great Lent is beginning… the Holy 40 Days of the Fast. Brothers and sisters, may God help you to carry out this podvig*, for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ, for the sake of love to our family, and for the sake of the Holy Image which is hidden in us, but which can shine a light to illuminate the souls of others!

  • Podvig: Should NEVER be “Englished”… one of the most powerful words in the Russian language. There are literally no English equivalents strong enough. Podvig has overtones of “epic”, “heroic”, “bravery”, “self-sacrifice”, “victory”, “effort”, and “triumph”. It’s best to leave it as is, and admit that English lacks the necessary material to give meaning to this word.

Bill Recommending Life Sentences for Paedophiles Submitted to Gosduma

________________________

On Wednesday, Gosduma Deputy Speaker Irina Yarovaya, who heads a group in the Gosduma working on a draft law proposing life imprisonment for convicted paedophiles, said:

The bill specifies that sexual offences against children under 14 that result in severe damage to their health will be punishable by life imprisonment. Such crimes get reported later in time because people prefer to keep them secret, while children facing continuous harm are psychologically distraught. This is the reason why the bill extends the statute of limitations for crimes against minors until they come of age. The bill stipulates that when those living together with kids and teenagers or those responsible for their upbringing, education, and protection of their rights commit such crimes, it’s an additional aggravating factor. The bill also considers spreading pornography amongst children over the internet an aggravating factor and stipulates liability for coercing minors into sexual acts via the internet. We assume that a psychologist may be present as investigators question children.

13 February 2018. The Bear Sez…

________________________

The USA is strutting about, boasting, and beating its own drum. They’re “exceptional”… “indispensable”.. “the sole superpower”… they’re “the envy of the world”, dontcha know. The reality is somewhat different. Most people throughout the world consider the USA the greatest threat to world peace and Anglo Americans juvenile feral little horrors. The bear ain’t foolin’… do ask the Teutonic Knights, the Tatars, the Poles, the Swedes, the French, and the Germans… they all came looking for a piece of the bear, too. The puffed-up American ninnies fit an old Russian saying:

They divide the bear pelt before the bear is dead.

I’d remind the ignorant hubristical Anglo brats that the bear is very much alive… he intends to stay that way…
