14 October 2014. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky. We Have Long Arms!

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. We Have Long Arms! 2014

________________________________

This is Podvitsky’s commentary on the “resignation” of Valery Geletei, the so-called “Defence Minister of the Ukraine”. Geletei wasn’t a military man (unlike most Defence Ministers on the post-Soviet space)… he was only a policeman who protected political figures. Yushchenko made him a Colonel General! Fancy that… it didn’t save him from rustication during Yanukovich’s time. Doglike in loyalty… yes… competent in military affairs… no. He claimed that Russia invaded the Ukraine… that’s absurd… Russian offensive doctrine wasn’t followed and there were no discernible Russian forces on the ground. There WERE plenty of junta troops who switched sides and joined the patriots, though! One of Geletei’s more quaint outbursts was that he claimed that Russia used nuclear weapons against junta forces. Yes… he did threaten to invade the Crimea… you can see why Podvitsky pictured him as a madman in restraints.

“Off with their heads!” One expects the Jabberwocky and the Queen of Hearts in Kiev… it wouldn’t surprise anybody…

14 March 2012. A Point to Ponder From a Good Friend…

Fathausen had best cool his jets… there’s the matter of his close and intimate (how intimate? Perspirin’ minds wanna know…) guru-disciple relationship with the deposed sodomite Gleb Podmoshensky (James Paffhausen KNEW of Podmoshensky’s VERY PUBLIC deposition, we all did). I think that JP’s breathing fire n’ brimstone about homosexuality (targeting Mark Stokoe and others) in order to divert attention from his own unrepented peccadilloes with Podmoshensky. It certainly fits the profile of a “closet queen“, doesn’t it?

A friend sent me this:

In regard to Pasonick, et al, I understand loyalty and I certainly grasp the idea that any man’s capable of repentance.  However, how the Church leaders can’t see the impact on the souls of other members of the Body of Christ, when an offender is treated as though nothing happened, is beyond me.  It’s as though “forgiveness” truly is taken to mean “forgetting”… a gross misinterpretation of what we’re called to do. Moreover, there seems to be some offenses that receive a much more vigorous response:

It’s an odd, Alice-Through-the-Looking-Glass world, as though we are supposed to proclaim “Axios!” for the Mad Hatter, and say “More Blessed than the Seraphim” for the Queen of Hearts.

Nothing more need be said. It truly makes atheism look attractive, doesn’t it? Reflect on this… Fathausen & Co don’t care if you or I keep the faith or go off into unbelief. Their beautiful theoretical construct dazzles them… real people don’t matter one way or the other. Now, that’s a “point to ponder”…
