31 May 2015. American Volunteer in Novorossiya… Vid in English

00 #savedonbasspeople 01. 30.05.14



I don’t agree completely… but he’s right… the war in Novorossiya is a war between good and evil. Holy Rus is standing for the right and true… Anglo America is standing for crookedness and chicanery… after all, in the American view, “winning is the only thing”. You may stand for godly communalism or for satanic individualism. Both Patriarch Kirill and Pope Francisco believe that the “Free Market” is a fraud… a Three-Card Monte game rigged against ordinary people.

If you defend American-style “conservatism” in any way, you defend evil, full stop. European Conservatives and Leftists are making common cause against Neoliberal Evil. In America, there are no Conservatives, only variations on the Classical Liberal theme (Burke, after all, was a Whig). In fact, American “conservatives” are more liberal in the strict sense than “Liberals” are… American “liberalism” took over aspects of One Nation Conservatism (Red Toryism, as it’s known in the Commonwealth), as it defends Crapitalism. Communists and National Conservatives find themselves agreeing on many (but not all) things. That’s especially true today, as Communism has dropped its former antitheistic stance. After all, Comrade Zyuganov sends Nativity and Easter greetings to believers.

You’ll find that Marine le Pen hobnobs with President Putin… UKIP and SNP find common ground… President Xi clinks glasses with Minister-President Orbán… things aren’t as simple as some would have you believe. We live in perilous times; such times bring people together who otherwise would find each other repugnant. You see, people see a foe that threatens everyone… National Conservatives and Leftists both see Neoliberalism as the common enemy. Now, remember, American “conservatives” are the most neoliberal faction out there. Ergo, what real Conservatives and Leftists are uniting to fight is an Antichristian Anti-Humanity Anti-Truth Moloch. Not only are there Conservatives and Leftists in the Decent Opposition, believers march shoulder-to-shoulder with secularists! People see the ravening “Indispensable and Exceptional” America as the major cause of evil in the world… and that number includes many Americans!

Yet, I have optimism. I believe that we will slay the Neoliberal Dragon… let the Country Club shits chortle now. Let the Affluent Effluent stamp on the poor and elderly now. The more that they do so, the harder their fall shall be in the end. I hope that we can do so without violent Revolution… for if that happens, all bets are off and the blood will flow. Bernie Sanders is our last hope. That’s all that we have to do… exercise our right to vote. You can have Chilly Hilly or the GOP Clown Car… nobody wants any of ’em. We can win if we simply stand together. If we don’t, the lights WILL go out, and they’d stay out for a LONG time. The Kochs et al are serious, as are their minions and dupes (yes, we have them amongst Orthodox, too… everyone knows who they are). We must be equally serious. I know that I’m not alone…

26 August 2013. Let’s Fight the Battles of Today… NOT Those of a Century Ago

00 Romney Racist T-shirt

This is the TRUE face of the Republican Right in the USA… scary, ain’t it? Their analogues in the West are their bound brothers… do ponder that.


There are all too many on the left who’re still fighting the battles of the early 20th century.  Of course, that era (and its barbarities) has passed into history, and any panacea based on the problems of that time are passée. Nevertheless, the basic weltanschauung of the Right hasn’t changed one little bit. They believe that they’re entitled to a “piece of the pie” far larger than that of the Average Joe. They “earned it”, you see. Mind you, they did none of the labour involved… but they “owned” the capital, dontcha know. That “entitles” them to glom a disproportionate part of the common wealth… and that you’ve NO right to complain of it… they’re “respectable” and “good people”, after all. Yet, be wise to the tricks of the Righties.

Firstly, they think that the laws don’t apply to them. Certainly, we all heard the “too big to fail” argument… odd how that applied to multinationals and their well-compensated executives, but not to Nick’s Diner down the street or Mel’s Heating & Air Conditioning. That’s galling enough, but I’m asking you to carry it through to its logical conclusion. Who believes that the laws don’t apply to them? Well, spoilt children and criminals, that’s who! You can easily see where I’m going… the Weekly Standard, Fox News, the Washington Times, and the post-Buckley National Review are the “Godfather’s Media”… with this caveat… Don Vito would’ve shown more class and shared more of his wealth (didn’t John Gotti, the “Teflon Don” do that? Isn’t that why the people of South Ozone stood behind him for so long?). Their arguments all have a common “Achilles Heel“… they assume that one accepts the postulates of Radical Liberalism. You see, there are NO Conservatives in the mould of Burke, Bismarck, Stolypin, Franco, and Dr Johnson left in the modern world. Indeed, the Radical Right has purloined their vocabulary… gutting the substance of their arguments to fit the Procrustean Bed of their oligarch paymasters. Liberalism preaches Free Markets, Individualism, and non-regulation… NOT Conservatism, which speaks of Tradition, Legitimacy, and regulation of man’s sinful impulses.

Surely, you can see where I’m going without the need of spending an overly-long time on spinning out the argument. So-called “Globalisation” is a criminal enterprise of the highest order. It doesn’t matter that it’s “legal“… sometimes, the most criminal doings are “legal”… reflect well on the fact that Hadamar and the Holocaust were LEGAL in Nazi Germany. The Righties want globalisation in order to flout the labour, safety, and environmental regulations of the developed states. That is, they wish to fatten their boodle bags by breaking the laws of their countries (this is the reason why so many businesses have “moved South” in the USA… the Southern states allow businessmen to beat up union organisers and bully workers).

This leads us to a conclusion as to the “prosperity mongers” on the Right. Yes… there’s “prosperity”… but only at the expense of workers in the Southern USA (Texas is the vilest location there, although Florida‘s not far behind by much) and the Third World. “If these people were any good, why, they’d be as prosperous as we are”. That’s not the worst of their argument… there’s a racism that’s never too far from the surface. Wiillie Romney didn’t rein in his racist supporters (“Keep the White House White”)… that’s a fact, and no person of colour (or no anti-racist, for that matter) should forget this. In short, the Right is rooted in racist and criminal assumptions… so, of course, they hate the government… they don’t want ANY bound on their greed and power.

We do have a choice…

A Note to Christians:

Don’t forget what the Bible says:

The love of money is the root of all evil.

I’d say that the Bible and the Republican Party are at odds. I know where I stand. Do you? Think on it…

Ken Livingstone: “It’s a Tragedy Mrs Thatcher Ever Came to Power”

00 Margaret Thatcher caricature. 09.04.13


Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone was a fierce critic of Mrs Thatcher when she was in power. The British media gave him the moniker “Red Ken” for his socialist beliefs during her tenure. Thatcher viewed the Greater London Council, of which Livingstone was leader, as a political threat and a waste of money. In 1986, Thatcher’s government abolished the GLC, putting Livingstone out of a job.


There are two things to say about Mrs Thatcher. Unlike most politicians, who’re spineless, who never want to actually lead, and who wait to see where public opinion’s going, she had beliefs that almost no one in her cabinet actually shared at the time she became the leader of the Tory Conservative Party. However, she ignored them, she drove ahead, and she made the changes that she believed that Britain needed… you have to respect that. I can’t think of any other modern Prime Minister with that degree of self-confidence and courage in their beliefs.

The tragedy for Britain is that almost everything she believed in was wrong, and almost all the problems that assail us today are the legacy of her neoliberal economics… the high unemployment, the collapse of our manufacturing industry. She inherited a nation that had some problems, but she made them infinitely worse… she deregulated the banking industry, she decided to write off our industry, she wouldn’t build good homes for ordinary people to rent, and she’s left a terrible legacy that’ll take a generation to clear up.

She did terrible things, such as abolishing the Greater London Council because she didn’t agree with it; it was the first real rolling back of democracy in a hundred years of British history. It’s very hard to think of anyone in a modern democracy who’d do something like that. The US President always has state governors and mayors critical of their policy, it’d never occur to them to do away with them. That meant terrible problems for London; we had a decade-and-a-half with no leadership. We actually proposed that we should stop discriminating against black people and against homosexuals; we recognised that women had equal rights… hardly insane, but just a bit ahead of its time.

Clearly, [the state funeral] isn’t right. The only politician of my lifetime that had a state funeral was Winston Churchill, who was a decisive force in the defeat of Adolf Hitler. If we’re to think about anyone today, it should be those whose lives she destroyed. We used to have a sound manufacturing industry; she wiped it out. Look at people’s lives… our suicide rates have gone up since the financial crisis; the bankers abused all the freedom that she gave them. We had a country used to virtually full employment before she got in… ever since, we’ve had people and whole communities just written off.

Overwhelmingly, it’s a tragedy Mrs Thatcher ever came to power. I respect the courage of her convictions and the way she led; the tragedy is she led us in the wrong direction.

9 April 2013. Maggie the Hag Passes… An Era Passes, As Well (With Reflections on the New Era Coming)… Thank God!

00 Margaret Thatcher. 09.04.13


This was a colloquy with a Cabinet member… I’m in regular type; they’re in italics:

Ding, dong, the witch is dead… Maggie Thatcher croaked. It’s the End of the Neoliberal End of History” Era…

She was a truly wicked being. I hope you do a good exposé of the hag! 

She was the worst of the Unholy Trinity. Gorby was only a Western brown-noser, and Slobberin’ Ronnie was only a figurehead for unelectable oligarchs… but Maggie was a True Believer. She’s the authoress of the present wicked age that we live in.

I can’t stand any of them, but especially not Gorbachyov. You’d be one of the few people here that know how much all the former Soviet peoples despise him and Yeltsin.

Gorby’s lower than Yeltsin was. Yet, Gorby’s a nonentity… waste no time on him. Interesting things I’m hearing… one of my friends at the Centre says that VVP might put in a “Red monarchy” (her words). That is, a communist government, a strong Church, a strong army, with a tsar as a constitutional figurehead (à la Scandinavia)… after all, VVP’s pushing 60, and he’s the sort to look to the future (he knows that he has ten years left as leader, at best). That’d give Russia a four-point system (not the three-point one it’s had since Pyotr Veliki (including the USSR)), which would be more stable and capable of weathering crises.

Zyuganov has mentioned a “Red Tsar” several times. His job would be to defend the Revolution from enemies and treason. It solves the problem of (real) democratic elections vs a strong and stable leader.


I wrote this to another Cabinet member:

Is Putin thinking of instituting a constitutional monarchy? After all, the only real organised political force in Russia is the KPRF (United Russia is only an ephemeral bloc; it’s a coterie collected temporarily around a personality). It’d institute a four-point (State-Army-Church-Sovereign) system instead of the traditional three-point (Party or Church-Army-State) system, which is inherently more stable. If so, it means that VVP’s looking to the future (he’s 60 this year, after all… probably, like all of us, he’s feeling his mortality). I’ll guarantee you this… VVP would NEVER put the fatso Maria Vladimirovna and her pack of drooling jackals on the throne (they’re all pro-Western lickspittles, in any case). It wouldn’t be beyond him to put Michael of Kent on the throne (he’d be MUCH more biddable than Maria is, and he’s much more telegenic, to boot).


I saw this on the net:

I’ll be brief:


Back to work…



The passing of Mag the Hag was the end of an era… just as her entrance in the late ‘70s was the beginning of the present neoliberal fool’s paradise. However, her intellectual heirs won’t go quietly… but they WILL go, that’s for certain.
