7 February 2017. A Point to Ponder… A True Read n’ Heed

00 same ol' shit. 29.05.12

____________________________________

The mainstream pro-imperialist left and the demagogic racist alt-right are effectively playing off each other. The alt-right screams hatred for Muslims, describing the actions of Saudi Arabia and al-Qaeda. The left screams, “You’re not allowed to say that! Racist!” and supports the “Syrian Revolution” and other CIA régime-change operations. No one points up that the USA props up Saudi Arabia, funding and arming Wahhabi groups, whilst targeting independent states like Syria, Iran, and Libya. Yes, there is backwardness in the Middle East, but the west has maintained it and targeted the forces of modernism and independence. The Alt-Right and the Soros Pro-Imperialist Cultural Left are like a duet, with both sides singing their chorus of lies, drowning out the truth. One side wants covert funding of Wahhabi extremists in the name of human rights and pushes “understanding” of disgusting autocratic US-aligned régimes like Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The other side wants violent attacks on Islamic countries, repression of immigrants, and support for Israel. I want neither. I want people in the Middle East to have the freedom to develop their own countries without foreign meddling. Self-determination.

Hero of Russia Captain of Artillery Marat Radikovich Akhmetshin

He died in June 2016 during the battle for Palmyra. In the end, it was only him against 200 Daesh terrorists. “Although wounded, he held a grenade and pulled out the pin…”

The Republican Yahoos hate Muslims and accuse them of terrorism. Well… you can respect and honour Donald Trump and his filthy lot who bleat a lot about terrorism or you can respect M R Akhmetshin and those like him who really fight terrorism. I seem to see a real difference here…

For those who believed (and still believe) Hillary Clinton’s shameless lies about Russia and Russians… eat shit and die… I simply won’t engage those who take credence in vacuous nonsense and who refuse to embrace the truth…

One last thing… don’t forget WHO backed and armed Daesh… Obama, Clinton, and their pals in the KSA and Gulf states… note well that Trump and his vultures don’t disown that and they’re not repentant in the least. God DOES see and judge…

Chechen Soldiers in Aleppo “Ease Interaction with Locals”

00-russian-soldiers-syria-030916

___________________________________

Russia sent Chechen soldiers to Aleppo as part of the military police battalion tasked with restoring law and order in the Syrian city. The battalion went to Aleppo in late December after the Syrian Arab Army liberated the city from militant occupation, providing security to humanitarian aid workers and Russian sappers who are helping Syrians to rebuild their lives. Now, it has the task of maintaining law and order on the streets of a city devastated by a drawn-out conflict. R A Kadyrov, the Head of the Chechen Republic, stated that around 400 Chechen soldiers are taking part in the policing and law enforcement operation as well as helping with the reconstruction efforts in Aleppo. On 23 January, Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram page that a Chechen Gosduma deputy and a Chechen mufti visited Syria and met with Chechens serving in the military there. He said:

The soldiers were proud to have the honour of serving in Aleppo as part of a peacekeeping force that protects civilians from terrorists.

RT’s Mariya Finoshina, who recently returned from Aleppo, said locals appreciated patrols in the streets, as people are afraid of looters who took to plundering devastated houses at the same time as residents started returning to their homes. Those trying to reclaim their belongings in the abandoned neighbourhoods or wishing to stay view the Russians as their protectors. Finoshina believed:

Many of the Chechens are Sunni Muslims, so their part in the mission is logical. You don’t want to see a total stranger patrolling the streets of your home town. Therefore, sending Chechens was a logical decision because they aren’t only Muslims, they’re Sunnis. Aleppo is a conservative city… and the Chechens are familiar with the religious and cultural traditions of the people on the ground.

Aki Rizk, a Middle East expert, told us:

 The participation of Chechens could really make the Russian military police mission more successful. It’s a very good step; it’d lessen tension. The people of Chechnya and Aleppo have much in common, both in a cultural and religious sense. The anti-terrorist mood amongst the [Aleppo] population also contributes to the mission’s success. The Syrian people are sick and tired of terrorist groups and they’ll cooperate with anyone who stands against these groups.

Family Enroute to Infant’s Life-Saving Surgery in USA Denied Entry

As you read the following, reflect on the loud “conservatives” in Orthodoxy who applaud Herr Trump’s every action. Especially, reflect on Rod Dreher, who supports the racist demagogue Patrick Buchanan, the author of the infamous Nixon “Southern Strategy”… which the Republicans used to exploit the most base and sick human motives. Evil is amongst us, kids… it DOESN’T have horns and hooves; it looks and sounds distressingly normal…

Her Doctors Say the Surgery Can’t Wait Much Longer

In the days since Donald Trump’s executive order banning refugees from several heavily-Muslim countries, we’ve heard countless stories of people’s lives being thrown into total upheaval as a result. One such story involves a sick baby in need of surgery with the Order preventing her family from getting her the care she needs. The order, enacted last Friday, calls for banning the entry of Syrian refugees indefinitely, all refugees for 120 days, and all citizens from seven predominately-Muslim countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) for 90 days. It’s caused a lot of disruption, but no stories are quite as egregious as those involving children are. In this case, it’s a four-month-old baby girl named Fatemah from Iran.

The infant has a heart condition requiring surgery and though her parents filed for the appropriate tourist visa, because of the ban, they’re now unable to travel to OSHU Hospital in Oregon for the procedure. According to KPTV, the child even has grandparents and an uncle who are US citizens, but it no longer matters because of the ban. The baby’s uncle, Sam Taghizadeh, says Fatemah needs the surgery “as soon as possible” and explains that the parents chose OSHU because the quality of medical services in their native Iran isn’t as good. He said:

Over there, it’s a very high risk because that is open heart surgery.

It was after a lot of research and work that the parents received the heartbreaking news that their trip wouldn’t be happening. Taghizadeh said:

For getting the visa, they ask for lot of the paperwork. You have to do many things, you know. For three weeks, we were working for every single thing they wanted.

The appointment was for 5 February, but it was only after arriving in Dubai last Saturday to complete the paperwork for their tourist visa at the US consulate that they got news of the ban. Taghizadeh, who’s lived in the USA for the last 13 years, reiterated his worries over the fact that Fatemah needs the surgery sooner rather than later:

They can’t wait, you know. Even I asked, “Can you wait a couple other years?” They said no. This thing has to be as soon as possible.

So now, the family is back in Iran, hopes dashed, with no idea when (or if) they can get their child the medical care she so badly needs. Is this what Donald Trump had in mind when he put in place a hasty ban that gave people no time to plan their lives? There are students being prevented from coming back to complete their studies, babies being detained at airports and denied access to breast milk, and five-year-olds being held without a parent for hours. America sure isn’t looking too great these days, and there’s reason to fear it’ll get worse. For now, a sick infant’s family is left to panic. As Taghizadeh said:

It’s like a nightmare. You know, in one night everything changes. Now, you don’t know what you’re going to do. Why, we came to the USA, we came here for freedom, for a better life. I’m feeling nowhere is safe.

He’s certainly not alone in that feeling.

If you voted for Trump… you voted for sheer evil. If you voted for Clinton… you voted for sheer evil. I voted Green… I refused to vote for evil. You can’t rationalise your way out of it… both “conservatism” and “liberalism” are but the two sides of the Neoliberal coin… both support the piranha Free Market and both purvey hatred and lies.

The system is broken. However, we won’t fix it until we realise that the centrepiece of its evil is the Free Market. Remember what Scripture teaches us… GREED, not homosexuality, not abortion, not immorality, is the root of all sorts of evil. Greed is a disease of the soul… the others are but moral peccadilloes in comparison. You do see what Satan is up to, don’t you? He offers preoccupation with “morality” so that his victims don’t realise that he gave them a corrosive cancer of the soul.

However… don’t argue with such sorts. They’re blind. If they won’t listen to Christ and His Church, they won’t listen to you and me, either. Simply keep the gate unlatched, the key under the mat, and don’t say, “I told you so”… some will come back to their senses, but they won’t listen to us. Keep that in mind…

Editor’s PS:

I let this story sit for a little bit… good news came in. Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York intervened and the family is now on its way to New York for surgery… with all expenses paid. Note who the good guys and the bad guys were in this. Mark it down well and vote accordingly…

Conservatism delenda est…
