13 June 2013. Is JP Starting a “New” Monastery? … REAL Orthodox “Race Relations”… And More…

00 a whisper in the loggia. 08.12


One of the Cabinet whispered:

Scuttlebutt has it that JP’s going to start a new monastery. I did hear that Patriarch Kirill told ROCOR NOT to take JP.

Remember how Potapov and Paffhausen were yelping that the Centre was going to take in JP, just you wait n’ see? Well, HH gave that one an old-school NYET. NO WAY… NO HOW. If JP’s starting a “new monastery”, where’s the money coming from? The OCA doesn’t have it… Valerie Ringa sez so. ROCOR is as flat-busted broke as the OCA is… Jordanville has fallen to rack and ruin. The Centre ain’t ponying up any cash for the OCA. In fact, Mollard’s trying to get clergy to go with him on his pending ad limina trip to Moscow (all OCA Metropolitans have to go to the Centre to get its nod… the OCA is autocephalous in name only, as everyone knows), but he doesn’t have the gelt to pay their fare and HH isn’t forwarding any either. Ergo, a “new monastery?” Well… he’ll have to pull several rabbits out of the ol’ tired hat… and I don’t think it possible. I’ll lay money that he’s gong back to Manton… where he’ll be a royal pain-in-the-arse to all concerned. We haven’t seen or heard the last of him… he’s got some nastiness to pull before he goes…

Another person wrote:

Our La-Di-Dah “Orthodoxy is so lucky to have me” converts obnoxiously presume Russians need lessons in race relations. I’ve never seen people more free of racial bias than “real” Russians and Ukrainians… especially, those from the “other side”. That’s a fact.

You want proof? How ‘bout Aleksandr Pushkin? How ‘bout his gran’pa Ivan Gannibal? Of course, I just posted about James Lloydovich Patterson… it’s clear that the Rodina wants him back. Don’t listen to rightwing pukes… Russia has always been a land of many peoples, creeds, and races. We’re a mixed lot… Eurasians, indeed! The konvertsy have nothing to teach us… NOTHING. If we follow what’s best in our Russian heritage, trust me, we don’t need “education” from condescending former-Anglican worthies.

Here’s something about one of the OCA crowd:

Michael J Pasonick Jr, a Wilkes-Barre engineer tied to several public corruption cases, has been fined by the Department of State. Pasonick was one of 156 licensed or commissioned professionals and organisations that the Department of State took disciplinary action against during May, Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele announced Tuesday. Pasonick was ordered to pay a 1,000 USD (31,960 Roubles. 750 Euros. 640 UK Pounds) civil penalty and to attend and complete at least five hours of remedial education on ethics. He also had a public reprimand placed on his permanent disciplinary record with the board and had his licenses suspended because he was convicted of a criminal offence. He previously pleaded guilty to paying a school board member in Luzerne County between 1,000 and 5,000 USD (31,960 to 159,800 Roubles. 750 to 3,750 Euros. 640 to 3,200 UK Pounds) to win the board member’s support for his efforts to secure school district contracts. During court testimony, Pasonick also said he paid 2,000 USD (63,920 Roubles. 1,500 Euros. 1,280 UK Pounds) to former Lackawanna County Commissioner Robert Cordaro to keep engineering contracts with a sewer authority in the county.


Pasonick was tight with Herman and Mollard. He’s trying to get reinstated as a deacon, but one of my contacts at St T’s told me in the car park that that’s going nowhere FAST. Pasonick was one of Bobby’s confrères… and that’s the kiss of death, now.

In short, the usual stew pot is bubblin’ away. God do help us… our “leadership” certainly isn’t…

10 June 2012. Pasonick Deposed by OCA Synod… NO News on oca.org (Did You Expect Any?)


I got the following intel:

OCA Synod finally deposed Pasonick for his felony bribery conviction.  Boyer (St T‘s abbot) drove him to the big house himself!

No news of this on oca.org. If patriarchia.ru has personnel matters up on the same day that they happen, and oca.org takes months (if ever) to post any disciplinary affairs, that does tell you much about the honesty of those running oca.org. It doesn’t speak well to the probity and reliability of Lyonyo and Lil’ Mizz Ginny, does it? Remember, JP had Pasonick as part of his “official” March for Life retinue. That’s wonderful, isn’t it? A convicted felon representing the Church. Yet, JP snickers at it, and expects you to smile at it, too.

God willing, Pasonick’s deposition is permanent. He deserves pastoral care, and he didn’t stop being a Christian, but being a convicted felon does bar one from the clergy. I wonder if the Centre knows of this…

27 April 2012. Pasonick Appeal Shitcanned… He Reports to the Slam on Monday… Shall JP Accompany His Pal to the Hoosegow?

Thieves Should Be Put in Prison

Arkady Areseniev



BUSTED! The court turned down Pasonick’s appeal to delay his reporting to prison or to change his place of imprisonment. US District Judge Richard Conaboy ordered Pasonick to report to his place of imprisonment by 14.00 Monday 30 April 2012. One wonders if JP will accompany his pal. After all, Fathausen made this convicted felon part of his official entourage at the 2012 March for Life, which made everyone present unwilling collaborators with JP’s rather odd beliefs on “forgiveness”. I’ll be blunt… Metropolitan Leonty Turkevich wouldn’t have allowed a convicted felon to do such, not in a million years. We seem to have regressed…

21 April 2012. Paffhausen Pal to Begin Prison Sentence on 23 April


So far, former Deacon Michael Pasonick is still supposed to surrender to the Feds on Monday 23 April at 14.00 EDT to begin his prison sentence. Pasonick’s shyster filed a motion on Friday, 20 April, to delay the beginning of the sentence by ten days. Sounds rather late to me. However, what’s important to us is that Fathausen allowed Pasonick to act as a deacon AFTER his conviction for bribery, and allowed Pasonick to be part of his official delegation at the so-called “March for Life”. This means that Fathausen’s ready to whitewash him… just like the Holy Synod did with Benjamin Peterson after his DUI arrest. Herman wanted BP out, but the Synod refused to act (which meant that Peterson, a major HOOMie supporter, stayed on, despite his open and glaring transgression). That’s why Herman, despite all his faults, was truly Orthodox, and it’s why Fathausen isn’t one of us, but rather a Southern California New Age charlatan poseur.

Should we mention the rumours flying about that JP wants to give Soraich a release so that Soraich can join the ROCOR? JP seems to like questionable characters. As for Love BT’s defence of Soraich… firstly, Soraich was BT’s protégé, secondly, he was BT’s Chancellor. Hmm… if Soraich is a rotter, what does that tell us about BT? Of course, there’s Soraich’s links to Rock and Bobby in Vegas… that implicates BT, too. As for Love BT himself, the smart word is that he hasn’t paid any rent money for his digs to the LA parish, even though he promised to do so. It’s all of a piece… defence of a questionable character… refusal to pay rent… is this what one expects of a retired bishop? I wonder…

As an FYI, Pasonick’s lawyer is one Joseph Sklarosky… just in case you catch him sniffing around your affairs…
