23 February 2015. Defenders of the Fatherland Day… THIS is Why the Republican Filth Will NOT Overwhelm Holy Rus

Yevgeni Tregub



Look at the above images… the first is a mother blessing her sons to go off to the VOV. This painting is from the late Soviet time… it portrays an overtly religious action without censorship. The second shows opolchenietsy getting ready to march in the defence of Moscow in 1941. Yevgeni Zakharovich was a VOV vet, so, he knew the score (he’s the sort of person spat on by the pro-American/papist junta). Let’s not play about… the point is that Western neoliberal greedsters want to destroy Holy Rus, so that they can rape it for their profit. The worst are found in the US Republican Party… the worst amongst them is Ted Cruz. If you recall, this strutting godless sectarian spat on Arab religious leaders, including Orthodox hierarchs. He had no shame… in fact, he boasted of it and tried to make US look bad. He’s one of the most obscene warmongers in Washington. He calls himself a “Christian”… he lies. There are Orthodox who defend this pig, who defend the Republican Party. Here’s the moral dilemma… if you support Republicans for their supposed “Pro-Life” stance (actually, it’s anti-abortion, not pro-life, but there’s no space for that argument here), you support those who hate our Holy Faith, who want to rape our Holy Motherland, who want to export their demonic neoliberalism and their false sectarianism. There’s no getting around it. Even without bringing anything else into it, we must know the Republican Party hates Holy Rus and wants to destroy it. They set their Uniate and schismatical attack dogs on Holy Rus. Turdchinov, one of the worst of the junta, is a sectarian apostate.

Orthodox Christians… you have a choice. You may stand for Holy Rus or you may stand for the Demonic Republican agenda. There are no other options for us. You MUST choose. I’ve chosen, I don’t think that it’s a secret where I stand. WHERE DO YOU STAND? This is a full-blown moral dilemma… people like Rod Dreher who make it into cartoonish simplistic twaddle do us no favours. There’s NO “totally pure” option, yet, we must choose one or the other imperfect alternative. That’s the way of it in life… those who say otherwise are juvenile simpletons.

We stand at a crossroads…

22 February 2015. They’re Serving Roast Adolf at Joe’s House Tonight! Dr Seuss was a LEFTIE!

00 Dr Seuss. They're serving Roast Adolf at Joe's House tonight! WW2


Dr Seuss was a LEFTIE! Let’s not forget that the American contribution to the victory of the Anti-Hitler Coalition was due to the socialist New Deal. It was NOT due to delusional Free Market greedsterism. America pulled together in a PLANNED ECONOMY and had the greatest production ever seen in American history. The Republicans are stinking liars of the worst possible sort… they want a system that’s almost identical to the economic system of Nazi Germany! You can stand for the Left and for Justice… or you can stand for the Republicans and Evil. Note well that the Republicans cheer on the Uniate murderers in Novorossiya… need I say more? By the way, Dr Seuss hated Republicans… he hated how they misused his story Horton Hears a Who. I agree with Dr Seuss, NOT the Republicans, what about you?

They’re serving Roast Rush and Poached Palin at Chez Putin tonight… pass the word…

To Academician V M Fillippov, RUDN Rector, and the faculty and students of RUDN

Dear Vladimir Mikhailovich! Dear teachers and students!

Please accept my heartfelt congratulations on this significant date in the life of the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia… the 55th anniversary of its founding. This university is one of the leading higher educational institutions of Russia. It’s highly respected not only here in Russia, but far beyond its borders. Your school had students from nearly 200 countries; many graduates are now prominent scientists, politicians, and public figures. It is encouraging that a number of RUDN graduates are now Orthodox clergy. Expressing hope for the development of constructive interaction between the RUDN and the MP’s theological schools, I wish you all good health, peace, God’s help and success in your works.

Kind regards,

To Journalist and political commentator V S Zorin

Dear Valentin Sergeyevich!

I heartily congratulate you on this remarkable date in your life, your 90th birthday. Several generations of your fellows know you as a great intellectual, writer, and scholar. You appeared on TV and radio, and your numerous articles and works have become an important part of the Russian informational and cultural space. Your professional activity has already entered the history books not only of Russian journalism, but also of political science. You’ve made a significant contribution in establishing trust and good relations between countries and peoples. I wish you good health, peace of mind, creative longevity, and success.

Kind regards,

+Kirill Gundyaev

Patriarch of Moscow and all the Russias

To People’s Artist of the USSR, Holder of the Order “For Merit” V M Zeldin

Dear Vladimir Mikhailovich!

I cordially congratulate you on this very important anniversary, your 100th birthday. The Lord will reward you abundantly for your creative life and longevity. Your professional experience, gleaned from the great masters of the performing arts of the first half of the 20th century, is rich and diverse. Brilliant roles in theatre and cinema brought you deserved national fame, and your high national and international awards are convincing evidence of your creative achievements. It’s remarkable that today you continue to delight many fans of your talent with new works, thereby giving the younger generation a vivid example of fidelity to a vocation and of inspired service to the arts. I wish you good health, good spirits, and God’s generous help in all your good deeds and endeavours.

Kind regards,

+Kirill Gundyaev

MP official website





The rightwingers amongst us (especially, some of the loudmouthed konvertsy), make a loud noise that the Church and the Republican Party are “natural allies”… you hear this from people such as Whiteford, Dreher, Fathausen and Potapov. Nothing is further from the truth. The above personal messages of HH prove that he holds the Soviet legacy in high regard. Therefore, Potapov’s nasty article about Stalin on the ROCOR official website wasn’t only far off the beam, it’s proof that he’s nothing but a stage-managed marionette in the hands of his employer… an organisation known as a CIA front by everyone in the know (we all know about his links with the notorious John Herbst and the oddbod Moonies at the Washington Times, after all).

We can stand with HH and honour the positive achievements of the USSR and of the Left in general, or we can stand with those whom I named above and stand with godless haters of Holy Rus such as Sarah Palin, Rush Limboob, John McCain, and Ted Cruz. That IS the choice and you must choose one or the other. If you choose to stand with Republicans, you stand with those who want to rip out our very heart and make us votaries of Almighty Mammon, as they are. The Republicans support the schismatic and Uniate war criminals in the Ukraine and Novorossiya… need I say more? You can stand with HH and with Good or you can stand with the Republicans and with Evil. That’s the choice… choose wisely…

By the way, the only reason that a cross is in front of the patriarch’s name is that these are official communications personally signed by him… any other use of it by ordinary sorts such as us is wrong, ignorant, and pretentious… ‘nuff said…
