29 November 2015. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words… A Village Liberated from the “Moderate Opposition” Near Aleppo

Syrian government soldiers after liberating a village from the “moderate” terrorists favoured by the USA… like all good combat troops, they look like hell… but fight like hell, too…


There’s no such thing as a “moderate opposition” in Syria… they’re all terrorists and they all murder Christians. Ergo, the US Congress appropriation to aid the terrorists in Syria exposes them as lying pigs with cretinish supporters. If you support the Republican agenda, you support evil. You either do so in ignorance, or you do so knowing full-well the real story (Rod Dreher, anyone?). It’s interesting to see the rants in the National Review about Islamist terrorists… when they support pols who routinely vote subsidies for Islamist terrorists! I looked at the latest NR and it disgusted me to no end that it vilified Bernie and that it had no mention of the Russian air campaign against the terrorists… that is, drone attacks against innocent civilians are A-OK with “conservative” Republicans, but organised military airstrikes against terrorists are beyond the pale. I need to find a corner to get sick in…

21 November 2014. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… Rich Lowry Parades His Ignorance of All Things Russian Yet Again

01 sarah palin age of stupid


On page 13 of the print edition of the 17 November 2014 National Review, Rich Lowry paraded his stupidity and ignorance of all things Russian. He wrote, “in all the Ukraine minus the Crimea and the THREE eastern provinces controlled by ‘pro-Russian separatists’ (sic)”. OUCH! The righties get it wrong again! Firstly, the patriots control TWO of the former oblasts in the ex-eastern Ukraine… the Lugansk People’s Republic (the former Lugansk Oblast) and the Donetsk People’s Republic (the former Donetsk Oblast). “Two” and “three” are different, we all learned that in kindergarten. Perhaps, the Count from Sesame Street should hit Rich Lowry with a real Soupy Sales “pie in the face”. At present, the Republic of the Crimea (formerly, the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea under the Ukraine) and the City of Federal Significance of Sevastopol (both under the Ukraine and the RF, Sevastopol isn’t part of the Crimea politically) are part of the Russian Federation, and the DNR and LNR are independent entities (federated in the Union of People’s Republics of Novorossiya). Of course, Mr Lowry doesn’t know this, so, any of his comments on the Russian/Ukrainian situation are crank and without any value whatsoever (this is true of all rightwing American commentators, especially, invincible ignoranuses such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Rod Dreher, Bill O’Reilly, and Patrick Buchanan). In all, four former “objects of federal significance” in the Ukraine are now free of Uniate fascist misrule. Also, do note that Mr Lowry didn’t mention that the KPU and Party of Regions weren’t on the ballot due to neo-Nazi elements in the junta (after all, it glorifies the Nazi collaborators of the VOV). A rather important detail, no?

Well… it gives you the measure of the Republican Party’s intelligence and of the intelligence of its obsequious running dogs in the media (note their utter and united silence about Initiative 594, Prop 67, and Howie Hawkins in the last election), doesn’t it? After all, we’re talking about a faction that adores Sarah Palin… a poseur who quit as governor of a state to take a well-paid media position. None dare call her a media whore… nor the idiots like Rod Dreher who defend her. If they can’t count… need I go on? The Republicans ARE the “Stupid Party”… ’nuff said!

1 October 2013. From the Russian Web… Yes, Virginia, There’s STILL Human Kindness in this World

00 Russia. Sparrow sleeping in flowerpot. 01.10.13


“One day, after a stormy night, we found a sparrow chick on the ground under our balcony. He was very young, still blind, and, at first, we thought that he was dead. However, he was alive, and we brought it home and put it in a box in our room. We tried to feed him, but to no avail. When he began to loudly tweet, we put the box on the balcony. He didn’t stop tweeting for about three hours straight, and, finally, another sparrow landed on the balcony… the father of the chick, who came to nurture him. Every 15 minutes, he brought him beetles and bread crumbs. The father bird fed him for two weeks. The chick grew significantly stronger, but he remained blind. We went to the vet, who prescribed eye drops for our pet birdie. Soon, the sparrow completely recovered and began to play with us, hiding behind the flower pots on the balcony. The father bird continued to visit the chick; one day, he showed him how to fly through the open window. We knew that the moment would come that he’d recover and leave us. However, we were very worried, because when he flew away, we had terrible weather again for a few days. We were pleasantly surprised when our sparrow returned to us. We found him sleeping peacefully on the balcony amongst his favourite flowers”.

That’s the Russian people for you. Don’t listen to the lies peddled by CNN, Fox News, the National Review, the Washington Times, and the Weekly Standard. Russians aren’t ogres… we’re rather normal and quite human… as the above story illustrates.

Putin Hails Traditionalism as Core of Russian National Identity

00 There'll Always be a Russia. Summer in the Village. 21.09.13


On Thursday, President Vladimir Putin touted traditionalism as the heart of the Russian national identity; lamenting threats like globalisation and multiculturalism, the drive for a “unipolar world”, and the erosion of Christian values… including an exaggerated focus on the rights of sexual minorities. addressing several hundred Russian and foreign officials, scholars and other public figures at a Kremlin-backed conference in northwestern Russia, Putin said, “Without the values at the core of Christianity and other world religions, without the moral norms that’ve been shaped over millennia, inevitably, people would lose their human dignity”. In a speech and question-answer session lasting over three hours at the 10th annual meeting of the so-called Valdai Club, broadcast live on Russian television and news websites, Putin lambasted “Euro-Atlantic countries” where “any traditional identity, including sexual identity, is rejected. Their policy equates families with many children with same-sex families, belief in God with belief in Satan. Any minority’s right to be different must be respected, but the right of the majority mustn’t be questioned”. Putin shifted toward conservative rhetoric ever since returning to the Kremlin for a third time in 2012, after a four-year term as prime minister. Regularly, he’s promoted traditional values in public speeches… a move that political analysts saw as an attempt to rally his conservative core constituency in the face of growing public discontent and a slowing economy. Many of the liberal values criticised in his speech are associated with the urban middle class that was a driving force behind large-scale anti-Kremlin protests in Moscow after controversial parliamentary elections in late 2011.

Editor’s Note:

Caveat lector! The article uses the words “conservative” and “liberal” in their Russian meaning. That is, “liberal” means anti-traditional Neoliberalism, which INCLUDES laissez-faire crapitalism, so-called “libertarianism”, and individualism. On the other hand, “conservative” means the philosophy of Graf Stolypin and the Church, NOT the fantasies of the US Republican Party, Fox News, and the National Review. I’d mention that many leftists are more “conservative” than most righties… all that you need to see are the many towns wrecked by “investors” pulling out for areas willing to “deregulate”. That’s NOT Conservative with a large “C”, kids. Socialists are more conservative than the “conservatives”… who woulda thunk it…
