Points from My Correspondence on Russia and Its Future

00 Work for the Soviet People! 04.04.15

______________________________

It’s up to us to describe the Russia that IS… not the one that the West wants… not the one that nostalgics want… not the one of the transitional state now in existence. My view is that VVP’s vision of the Eurasian Union is that of the old pre-1922 USSR coupled with Tsar Aleksandr I Pavlovich’s vision of the Holy Alliance. That is, VVP is thinking beyond the RF… he doesn’t want to revive the USSR of Stalin’s day… he’s thinking of the USSR of 1920 that wanted to “export” its “revolution” to the West… he’s thinking of the Holy Alliance that sent tsarist troops to Hungary to crush the ’48. He’s studied history, and knows it, unlike most Anglo Americans (especially, in the leadership).

It will rise from the dead by preserving the best of Old Russia, the Empire, and the USSR and discarding the dross. Lenin’s tomb will stay on Red Square… but he’ll be buried in a normal sarcophagus… we’ll nail down the identities of those buried in Petersburg (I think that they’ll find them to be the imperial family), and move them to their place of martyrdom, in the Church on the Spilt Blood in Yekaterinburg… most of all, Kiev, the Mother of All Russian Cities, will have the tricolour and red banner flying over its battlements (Elder Iona said so, didn’t he?). The only way to bring resurrection is to bring forth ALL of our history. ALL OF IT. If Ivan Grozny was part of our history, if Pyotr Veliki was part of our history, then, V I Lenin and I V Stalin are part of our history too. If we refuse to acknowledge the dark side of all eras, we’ll learn NOTHING. It’s ALL ours… or NONE of it is ours. That’s my stand.

If you look at the images coming out of Novorossiya, the amalgamation of Christian and Soviet imagery strikes you. People wearing crosses plant the Red Banner on buildings! People holding icons defend statues of Lenin! Priests bless soldiers who march under the Hammer and Sickle! I’d say that this is what was coming in the USSR, but the August Events aborted it. There’s a new Christian Eurasia… a Christian Socialist state… a state with an appreciation of its Orthodox/Soviet past. If you want St Vladimir, you must have V I Lenin… and VICE VERSA!

Things are unravelling right smartly in the Ukraine… it’s the same thing every day… empty shop shelves, no pay, men hiding out from the Voenkom… the Americans are stuck to a tar-baby. I’m convinced that this wasn’t ordered from Foggy Bottom… people in Langley thought they could get away with it (I think that Nuland and her husband Kagan were the ones behind it). Well… it blew up in their faces. Watch… Obama will skedaddle at the last-minute to fuck up the GOP in domestic matters. Both parties are using this situation for domestic “chicken”… it has nothing to do with the Ukraine at all. BOTH Dems and GOP are playing this for 2016 talking points. It’s a game of Liars Poker… with real people as the chips. I think that makes me (and you) sick. None of ’em gives a rat’s ass for real people’s lives.

I know that you must throw a pinch of incense on the altar in the present-day ROCOR. I’d say that you’re one of the few to understand what I’m really writing about (not only about Russia, but also about the Church, and our crying need for UNITY). BTW… Karlin isn’t as deep as he pretends to be. In his description of the Russian-American diaspora, he missed a good deal. For instance, he typified all “White Russians” as Upper Middles, “conservative”, and clueless about contemporary Russia… that’s not true. I noted that he didn’t talk about the earlier wave of working-class immigrants at all! It’s obvious that he spent no time in NEPA… would he learn if he spent a week in Mayfield or Pittsburgh? I don’t know.

4 December 2014. WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON? Do You Stand for the Racist Uniate American Carpetbagger Junta or Do Stand for the Patriots of Novorossiya?

00 Free Us from American Slavery. 2014

______________________________

Oh, yes… not only has the USA put three non-Ukrainian carpetbaggers in the Uniate junta, the US forces wear the “Fritzie” helmet… the same style that the Nazis used. That picture could not only be a Nazi of 1942… it could be an American of 2014… not much difference in their MO, is there? “We’re going to plunder you to enrich our coffers”. Erich Koch said, “I don’t care if 50,000 Ukrainians die digging an anti-tank ditch for Germany”. Ted Cruz and John McCain say, “We don’t care if 50,000 Ukrainians freeze this winter, so long as the multinationals get their profits”. Not only are their helmets the same, their evil is the same, isn’t it… Republicans and Nazis… two related sorts of depravity. Who woulda thunk it?

Orthodox people… expose all those traitors who want to ally Christ’s Church with Mammon… no man can serve two masters… you can support Christ or you can support the Republican Party. Choose well…

Poroshenko Appoints American Carpetbagger as Finance Minister… USA to Plunder the Ukraine Before the Junta Falls (They’ve Already Stolen the Gold!)

00 death to poroshenko! 09.08.14.

Have you ever seen the like? Poroshenko sells out the Ukraine to American and American-ruled carpetbaggers… how much of a cut are the Americans giving him for allowing them to rape the country? Remember… the neocon Republicans and interventionist Dems are seen for what they are (godless amoral thieves)… Orthodox people should see that JP, Dreher, Whiteford, Lyonyo, Webster, Freddie M-G, S A Schmemann, and Potapov (amongst others) support the theomachistic Anglo American drive for global hegemony.

________________________________

Read this. The Americans have bared their fangs. They’ve already stole the Ukrainian gold reserves… they’re getting ready to strip the Ukraine of all of its movable wealth before the junta falls. Orthodox people should reflect that the asshats named above are helping the Anglo Americans in their godless aggression and theft. Mollard’s in Moscow… fancy that. God willing, HH will hold his feet to the fire. Now, it’s open… the Anglo Americans expose themselves as calculating common criminals and cruel mean-spirited barbarians. It’s now clear who the “white hats” in the Cold War were… THE SOVIETS! This shows America in all of its god-denying glory. America has been a crank enterprise ever since its juvenile and self-centred rebellion in the 18th century. Look at this news and weep. America the Greedy… eat shit and die, righties… this proves that neoliberalism is the foremost evil on earth.

Cardinal Koch Sez the End of Communism Wasn’t All Good for Christianity

the-fall-of-the-berlin-wall1989

______________________________

On Monday, Cardinal Kurt Koch, the top Roman Catholic official for inter-church relations, said that the end of communist rule in Europe, which began 25 years ago this month, wasn’t all positive for Christianity because it brought tensions between Rome and Russia back to the surface. He said that the re-emergence of Uniates in the Ukraine and Romania after decades of suppression created major tensions with the Russian Orthodox Church. Russian Orthodox leaders accused the Vatican-aligned Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGKTs) of trying to take back churches and woo away believers from the MP. The UGKTs and the Vatican deny this. MP bishops cited this as a hurdle to closer ties between Orthodox and Catholics, which for decades prayed for the conversion of the USSR, only to see the newly resurgent Russian Orthodox Church become a difficult partner. Koch told Vatican Radio, “The changes in 1989 weren’t advantageous for ecumenical relations. Eastern Catholic churches banned by Stalin re-emerged, especially in the Ukraine and Romania, and the Orthodox brought out old accusations about Uniate churches and proselytism”. “Uniate” refers to Eastern (sic) churches with Orthodox-style liturgies that recognise the pope as their spiritual leader.

Later this month, Pope Francisco Bergoglio will meet Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew Archontonis in Istanbul. Bartholomew supports more cooperation with Rome, but can’t ignore the wary Russians, who make up two-thirds of the world’s 300 million Orthodox. Koch, who spoke a week after the 25th anniversary of the Berlin Wall’s fall, and on the same day as Czechs marked the start of their democratic revolution, noted that talks on closer ties between Catholic and Orthodox theologians were suspended between 2000 and 2006 because of tensions between the two sides, saying, “There are always setbacks, but I’m convinced that we can make more progress”. He noted that persecution of Christians in the Middle East brought Catholics, Orthodox, and Protestants there together, but the Ukrainian crisis heightened tensions among churches, saying, “We’ve repeatedly heard major complaints from the Russian Orthodox. This is unfortunate because churches are supposed to be a factor for unity and reconciliation”. Last month, Metropolitan Ilarion Alfeyev, the Number Two man {not so… it’s a common ignorant Western misconception: editor} in the Moscow Patriarchate, used his guest presentation to a Vatican synod on the family to accuse the UGKTs of trying to poach Orthodox believers.
