2 April 2016. Political Cartoonists Give Us Three Reasons Why American “Conservatism” is EVIL

The first cartoon illustrates “The rich are above the law”. The second illustrates “The rich deserve our worship and adoration”. The third illustrates “Freedom from government regulation… except for those who disagree with us or those whom we consider outcasts”. All of these are basic tenets of American “conservatism”. There’s a reason I oppose the sludge spouted by the late William F Buckley, Pat Buchanan, and Donald Trump… I know that I’m not alone. The Good Lord loves HAPPY WARRIORS. Oppose godless “conservatism” with all your might but don’t hate… God loves John Whiteford and Rod Dreher… He wants them to turn from their Mammon-crazed sin and live. Pray for your enemies… we’re Christians, that’s what we do. However, as we pray for them, we still oppose and fight them with all our might… that’s the way of things. Godlessness dressed in the vesture of “religion” is the most noxious and most corrosive of all evils… do reflect on that…

11 November 2015. Seven Celebrities Who Asked For (And Got!) Russian Citizenship

______________________________

People often fall for the Anglo lie that Russians are racists (actually, the opposite is the truth!)… here’s the truth. Look at Celebrity Number Five and Celebrity Number Three. I rest my case…

The narration is in Russian, but the vid is only five minutes long… watch it for the visuals and you’ll see why I recommend it. Russians have a “one drop” rule, too, but not the same one as the Anglo racists have… “If you have one drop of Russian blood, you’re Russian… if you shed one drop of your blood for Russia, you and yours are Russian”. The fact that Russia is a deeply Orthodox society DOES have its real-world implications… let those with ears hear…

Good Ol’ Silvio Rides Again… “Bribes are Necessary”

silvio_berlusconi

______________________________

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi shocked the Italian media with his views on bribery and its necessity in doing business in Third World markets. A series of corruption scandals has rocked the Italian political scene, whilst the current election campaign added to the intensity of the media inquiries into the unsavoury business practises of Berlusconi’s former allies. Amongst the targets of the latest anti-corruption campaign are the CEOs of Finmeccanica S.p.A. and Eni S.p.A.. It seems that Berlusconi felt the need to defend them, telling a Financial Times correspondent, “Bribes are a phenomenon that exists, and it’s useless to deny the existence of these necessary situations when you’re negotiating with Third World countries and régimes”.

The former Italian Prime Minister also tried to explain that bribing government officials is basically an unavoidable part of doing business, and that Giuseppe Orsi (former head of Finemeccanica) and Paolo Scaroni (former head of Eni) were actually paying “commissions”. Finmeccanica and Eni are Italian companies where the Italian government has significant stakes; therefore, the media often links the bribes paid by those companies to the corrupt practices of government officials. Both former CEOs denied any wrongdoing, but it’s unknown whether they appreciate such a form of public defence from Berlusconi, a politician who’s been heavily-involved in corruption scandals. Berlusconi’s political enemies used this opening to criticise him for “supporting corruption”, whilst current Prime Minister Mario Monti emphasised that his government has taken unprecedented measures to root out corruption. Given the fact that Mario Monti is a former employee of Goldman Sachs (a bank that often faced charges of corrupting government officials across the world), it’s safe to assume that both sides of the Italian political spectrum lack anti-corruption credentials.

Editor’s Note:

Like it or lump it, Good Ol’ Silvio speaks the God-honest truth. You don’t have to agree with or like someone to acknowledge that. If you want to do business outside Western Europe or the Anglosphere, it’s best to include a hefty allowance for… ahem… “extraordinary expenses”. If one was dealing with Mobutu’s Zaïre or Batista’s Cuba (or any Good Ol’ Boy state in the Southeastern USA or some local “machines” in the Northeast (our local boss, Jerry Jennings, is smarter than that… he knows that a modest “return” ensures “repeat business”))… well, that “margin” could be very dear, indeed.

Correa Celebrates Presidential Victory in Ecuador… Left Whips Banksters GOOD

00 Correa. Ecuador. 18.02.13

______________________________

Ecuadorean President Rafael Vicente Correa Delgado celebrated his election to a third term, singing and dancing at a meeting with his supporters. Appearing at a stage in central Quito, where thousands of his supporters gathered, Correa sang his campaign song along with the crowd and danced. Correa said that he’d dedicated his victory to his friend, Venezuelan President Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías, who’s undergoing cancer treatment in Cuba. He wished “Commander Hugo Chávez” the swiftest recovery, calling him “a great leader who’d changed Venezuela”. Correa already received congratulations on his election victory from the governments of Cuba and Venezuela. Correa enjoys an approval rating of nearly 85 percent, mostly due to his social and economic policies. According to the National Electoral Council, Correa won 57 percent of the vote with almost 50 percent of ballots counted. His main election rival, former banker Guillermo Alberto Santiago Lasso Mendoza, trailed in second place with 24 percent, he’s already conceded that he’d lost the election. 11.6 million eligible voters cast their ballots in Sunday’s vote.

Editor’s Note:

Every election so far worldwide is a turn leftwards. That’s because people are getting hip to the Right’s lies and obfuscations. They’re nothing but thieves who want to steal from people of modest means to enrich the fat-cat oligarchs. That is, “steal from the poor to give to the rich”. That’s why I detest and reject the so-called “Pro-Life” movement. It’s nothing but a stalking horse for the Far Right… with a support of war, promiscuous imprisonment, and wholesale use of the death penalty, all that on top of an anti-life agenda that makes it impossible for people of modest means to live lives of dignity and respectability. That’s what the Right wants… that’s why they’re losing elections.
