18 October 2018. Our People and Our Planet Before Their Profits

18 October 2018. I Wrote This Four Years Ago… It’s Truer Today Than It Was Then

This is from six years ago… and it still has tread, too. Bain Capital loaded up Toys r’ Us with debt and looted the store before it folded. Trump & Co chortle at this and applaud it. Vote against the Republican Party, for your very life depends on it.

With Trump & Co loudly calling for cuts to Social Security to finance giveaways to the deadbeat Affluent Effluent, what I wrote four years ago has more resonance today than it did then. The Republicans hate you and wish to rape you for the benefit of their rich paymasters. The Democrats hate you as well, and love the rich just as much, but they’ll leave us with more than what the Repugs would. Ordinary people have no option this year. As bad as the Dems are (and they ARE filthy promoters of neoliberal crapitalism), they’re better than the GOP, who’d leave us with nothing.

With all the chest-beating on the part of the American rightwing… let’s utter a home truth. American cosmonauts have to fly Russian spacecraft to the ISS as the reckless Republican filth wasted the USA’s treasure in useless land wars in Asia that didn’t advance the cause of national defence one iota and on gigantic tax cuts to corporations and to lazy wealthy scummers. That’s a fact, jack…

If you vote for the Republican Party, you vote for anti-patriotism (exporting jobs abroad and nominating cowards who refused to do military service), you vote for anti-life programmes (gutting the social safety net that unwed moms need to raise kids instead of having abortions), and you vote for Might Makes Right (bullying smaller countries and handing the country over to the Country Club Affluent Effluent Set). If you vote against them, you just might have Americans flying American spacecraft again. After all, the money for warmongering and coddling the rich has to come from somewhere…

IT COMES FROM YOU… IT COMES FROM YOUR KIDS… AND THEY DON’T GIVE A GOOD RUBY-RED GODDAMN.

Vote against the Republican scummers… God will bless you for it (and so will His Holiness… he’s a Red, and don’t you forget it!)…

US Cosmonaut Hague “Amazed” by Russian Rescue Team’s Work After Soyuz Failure

__________________

On Wednesday, as broadcast by NASA, American cosmonaut Nick Hague told NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine that the teamwork of the rescue crew that helped him and Russian cosmonaut Aleksei Ovchinin to get out of the rescue capsule after their recent emergency return to Earth after a launch vehicle failure impressed him:

They had three pararescue jumpers. As soon as they had found where we were at, they jumped in to get to us as quickly as they could. In a handful of minutes, somebody was tapping on the window next to me, giving me the OK symbol, I answered back with a big smile, and then, they had the hatch open. I was amazed at the quick response of the rescue crew. You know, they practice this all the time, but they haven’t had to put it to use in 35 years. To respond the way they did is a true testament to how seriously they take their responsibilities and their job.

He praised the professionalism of the Russian team engaged in spaceflight preparations and conduct:

I wasn’t surprised by their support and how well they worked. It’s on display every day over there, and it’s a privilege to be part of it. I feel great and my physical condition is awesome.

On Wednesday morning, Hague ran a mile (1.6 kilometres) with his wife. Earlier, Russian State Space Corporation Roscosmos said that Ovchinin and Hague would fly to the ISS in spring 2019, with an exact date specified later.

On 11 October, the Soyuz-FG launch vehicle failed to launch the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft, with Hague and Ovchinin on board, to the International Space Station (ISS) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Just minutes after liftoff, the crew aborted the mission due to a booster malfunction. The two-man crew escaped in a rescue capsule and returned unharmed. Immediately afterwards, Russia launched an investigation of the incident.

Note well that the loudmouth Anglos have to hitch rides on Russian spacecraft to the ISS. The USA lacks the capability to do so because it wasted all its money on wars in foreign parts and sweetheart giveaways to the Affluent Effluent. They don’t put sanctions on this, for if they did, the big bad Anglos couldn’t get into space at all! Do note the lack of propagandistic tone in this… compared to the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Guardian, and Fox News, trust me, the Russian media is truly a breath of fresh air. They report the news much better than their American counterparts do. Remember, the US media is under corporate control, which is much worse than state control is. If you don’t write what the oligarchs want, you’re out of a job and you don’t eat. The worm has turned, hasn’t it?

OCA Tries to Ignore EP Apostasy… Nothing About EP Actions or Moscow’s Counteractions on OCA Official Website

Is Mallard a Mazeppa or simply the Court Fool? Time alone will tell us…

__________________

There’s still nothing up on the OCA official website about the EP apostasy in re the Ukraine. Nothing. Nada. Nichevo. It’s as though nothing is happening and it’s business as usual. This is treachery of the highest order. Moscow gave the OCA its autocephaly and defended it against EP aggrandisement. The OCA has repaid it by refusing to stand by its Mother Church in its hour of need. I’ve noticed that too many converts are either wishy-washy or support the apostasy of the EP. Shall they stay loyal to the Mother Church and Truth, or shall they sell out to the EP and Expediency? Only time will tell us, and I fear that the outcome would be that the OCA will either fly apart or go into schism with the EP. In the end, the main victim of this affair won’t be the UPTs/MP… I fear that this may mark the end of the OCA in its present form. God do help us… the schism is only in its initial stage, but what I see gives me no confidence.
