14 July 2018. Pakistan Supposedly Banned Me… For This…

This image is supposedly “blasphemous” to Muslims according to Pakistan (at least, that’s what WordPress is saying). Do note that it doesn’t reference Muslims at all!

Here is the full post that Pakistan supposedly complained of. Nothing in this post references Muslims. NOTHING. I never even mentioned Muslims in this post, so how could this be “blasphemy?” Indeed, I’ve been supportive of Muslims in general, as anti-Islamic hysteria is against my faith as an Orthodox Christian. Look at the following images that I’ve posted on the referenced blogsite:

________________________

Nothing that I’ve ever posted has been anti-Muslim. Indeed, I stand against anti-Islamic bigotry and agitation. I’d advise WordPress to investigate this. Nothing in the referenced post attacked or even mentioned Islam. It DID criticise American aggression in Afghanistan. Therefore, this could be a scam or a badly-disguised effort by the US government to silence critics.

WordPress! Shame on you. You cravenly went along with something without investigating it. I have nothing but contempt for such pusillanimous behaviour. I could understand it if I were Breitbart or The Daily Stormer. Note well that this occurred after I attacked The Daily Stormer and Maxine Waters. I can only shake my head in amazement. An American enterprise folds in the face of a groundless complaint…

Let God see and judge…

12 July 2018. “Russian Insider” and “Russian Faith” Allied With “The Daily Stormer”… Hate Tries to Infiltrate Christ’s Church

Here’s Yelena Khanga, a presenter on RT. Guess what? REAL Russians aren’t racists. Yes, we have racist fools… all groups have them, sadly enough. However, both the Church and the State condemn racism. Does this mean that all racism is gone? No… but it does mean that racism has no official support, either from the Church or from the State. 

******

Most Russians would act like this… it’s a clip from the famous movie Tsirk (Circus). I’m proud to say that my people LIBERATED the death camps… they didn’t stuff Jews into the ovens like the “superior” Westerners did!

_________________________

Look at this. Russian Insider and Russian Faith are Far Right websites that pretend to be pro-Russian and pro-Orthodox. By posting material marked explicitly from The Daily Stormer, these sites crossed a line. No decent person can have ANYTHING to do with such perversion. Yes… there are Russian Orthodox people here in the diaspora who support such fascist filth. These people also support the glorification of the traitors Krasnov and Vlasov (who took up arms against the Rodina at the behest of the fascists); in general, they support the Anti-Life racist programme of the Republican Party. Where does the Church really stand? Let these two images tell the tale…

******

His Holiness with his good friend Comandante Fidel…

******

Russia is a multinational, multicultural, and multireligious state and civilisational space. President Putin has made that clear on many occasions. Don’t listen to lies from American “liberals” and “conservatives”. Both have hate-based agendas grounded in greed and arrogance.

______________________________

I’m tired of the distortions of the Rodina offered by both “conservatives” and “liberals”. The Daily Stormer can rot in hell for its racism. Maxine Waters can rot in hell for her racism… her hatred of the Rodina qualifies as such. We’re neither angels nor devils. We’re just sinful-ginful human beings, no better or no worse than any other. Beware all those who peddle hate… of whatever stripe. Whether it comes from the Trumpkins or the Hillarybots, it’s the same vile and noisome brew. I spit on both of them and everything that they stand for.

Not all hate is obvious… some of the most seemingly anti-racist people harbour the vilest sentiments. Have a care… the times aren’t good.

8 July 2018. ALL Neoliberals Are the Enemies of Ordinary People… Both “Conservative” and Liberal”

________________________

Both Trump and Clinton are part of the same social class… they’re wealthy Upper Middles who want to break into the Upper Class, but can’t. The Clintons wanted to move to Tarrytown, but the Rockefellers kept them out (they ended up in Chappaqua… a burb full of wealthy no-accounts like them). Trump is a real-estate developer, which says it all… he has no chance of really hobnobbing with the Mellons, Carnegies, Whitneys, or Rockefellers either.

The last real “American aristocrats” to sit in the White House were FDR and George H W Bush (George W was an aristocrat wannabe.. he just didn’t make the grade, socially speaking). Kennedy was a Lace Curtain Irish wannabee… the Kennedys still aren’t completely considered real Upper Crust by the Social Register set. Therefore, Clinton and Trump fawn on the real oligarchs, because they lust to be in that set themselves. There’s no chance of that happening. The oligarchs will use them… but they’ll never consider them equals or allow them into the inner sanctum. What’s more, the Clintons and Trump know this, but they hope against hope that they real poohbahs will approve of them and anoint them “aristocrats” too.

Clinton and Trump come from the same sleazy social class. The reason that both cudgel ordinary people is that they want to be Uppers, but the Uppers won’t have them. Their disappointment comes out as resentment against ordinary folk, so Clinton and Trump allow their Upper Middle pals to screw working people. It can’t go on forever. If you squeeze people hard enough, it leads to a reaction… like heads stuck on fence posts. I don’t want to see it come to that, but Clinton and Trump aren’t helping matters (neither are minor neoliberal slumtickets like Paul Ryan and Maxine Waters… two shitbirds of a feather who enable the wealthy).

Both hate us and our aspirations. React accordingly…

Immigration Impacting Infantry

________________________

After receiving heavy pushback by the Trump Administration, the US Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest recruitment programme (MAVNI) is now deauthorised, so, as a result, the Pentagon began discharging dozens of associated recruits. Recruits promised an “expedited” path to citizenship now are out of the US Army with nothing but their fatigues to show for their service. MAVNI, which began under former President George W Bush in 2002, was as a pathway for US naturalisation following  “honourable service” since 2009. Despite the requirement being achievable just days following entry into boot camp, recent recruits expecting citizenship now face a cycle of interviews, background checks, and screening processes in addition to discharge papers. With immigration a hot-button issue for the Trump Administration following the family separation and child detention camps scandal under the US President’s “zero tolerance” policy, Washington may have another associated problem on its hands as immigrant recruits begin seeking legal counsel.
