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!

10 September 2014. American Far Right Website Claims that Russian Sub Patrolled Undetected “For a Month” Near US Base




A Cabineteer said that this one is from 2012. No matter… it’s TRUE! In all particulars. It was an election year, and Cornyn hasn’t changed his spots, so, everything said is still legit. In fact, since Cornyn hasn’t changed his views in the face of reality, it means that it not only is still relevant, it gives all concerned a warning about Mr Cornyn… remember, he’s a Chicken Hawk and a gun nutter to boot… a coward who CHOSE not to serve. Great stuff, eh?



File this one under “Modern Fairy Tales”. Read this. It’s a howler! RT’s on the up and square… it shows that the Washington Free Beacon is a nasty-ass lying sack o’ shit. Note what’s claimed… a Russian nuclear sub was patrolling in the Gulf of Mexico undetected for more than a month. If no one detected it, well, how can we be sure that it was there for a month? It may have been there just for a day, or a week, or for six weeks… if no one detected it, how can we know how long that it was there? Besides, if the sub went undetected, how could we even know that this notional ship was even there? That’s Fallacy Number One.

Note what the clueless Texas Republican said:

It’s a confounding situation arising from a lack of leadership in our dealings with Moscow. While the president is touting our supposed “reset” in relations with Russia, Vladimir Putin is actively working against American interests, whether it’s in Syria or here in our own backyard.

No one has spoken of the reset for YEARS. I’ve not heard talk of it for at least two, if not three. In other words, Cornyn is appealing to clueless Yahoo Know Nothing baggers. It’s an election year, so, all sorts of rot gets spouted by all sorts of pols on both sides of the aisle. I’d observe that Mr Cornyn has no private means to find out how long the Russian sub was near the American coast. How does he know how long that it was there? Actually, I think that he got his intel from a Far Right navy officer who leaked classified dope… in other words, the sub wasn’t undetected, and the officer who spilt the beans is a criminal who belongs in the slam for leaking sensitive military intel to a loudmouthed pol. Cornyn belongs in the slam for publicising classified naval intel (for sub spottings are indeed such). SOP is NOT to admit that you’ve detected someone… that’s to not tip-off the other side that you know what they’re doing. So, this wasn’t only illegal, it was abysmally stupid… but then again, we’re talking of Tea Party Evangelical Republicans, aren’t we? That’s Fallacy Number Two.

To speak bluntly, American and Russian subs have operated near each other’s coasts for DECADES. Earth to baggers… this is nothing new. American subs operate near Polyarny… Russian subs operate near Kings Bay… both sides know it, both sides have patrols out in consequence, and both sides do their best to stay out of the other’s territorial waters. THIS IS SOP… THIS IS NAVAL DOCTRINE FOR BOTH SIDES… THIS IS AS OLD AS THE HILLS. Only a Far Right schmidiot publication like the Washington Free Beacon could fall for this one. That’s Fallacy Number Three!

The Ump cries, “Yer out!”… as the Mighty Cornyn heads for the showers, defeated yet again by stubborn facts. It certainly speaks to the veracity level of Matt Continetti (the editor of the Free Beacon), doesn’t it? He worked for Rich Lowry, which means that he has the same (non-existent) standards… do recall how Lowry claimed that the junta was winning the Ukrainian Civil War when Taruta was fleeing Mariupol in a helicopter and as the VSN was retaking much territory from the junta forces in the August Offensive. He’s also Bill Kristol’s son-in-law… we all know Kristol, don’t we? Shitbirds of a feather DO flock together. Continetti is another gutless yellow Chicken Hawk… that’s par for the course for the warmongering Far Right, isn’t it? He screams for war, yet he cowardly refused to serve, himself. Cornyn is another Gutless Coward in the mould of Richard Cheney… he refused to serve, too… but he screams for war and stumps for “gun rights” (he’s also corrupt in the usual Texas way, receiving 3 separate state and local government pensions in addition to his Senate salary). Great bunch, eh?

A note for Orthodox people… perspirin’ minds wanna know if Potapov, Paffso, and Webster (the Unholy Trinity of the District) have ties with this scabrous lot… I’d betcha that they are…

4 September 2014. If George Will, Ted Cruz, John McCain, and Rich Lowry are FOR the “Right to Keep and Bear Arms”, Why Do They Oppose the Patriots of Novorossiya Who Stand Up Against Oppression with Guns in Their Hands?

00 This is what George Will Hates. 04.09.14


George Will, Ted Cruz, John McCain, and Rich Lowry make loud squawks about the “Right to Keep and Bear Arms”… well, the people of Novorossiya are standing up against the fascist snakes with guns in their hands. The guys I named support the free men of Novorossiya in their fight against evil, don’t they? After all, they illustrate why the people have the right to have guns… and that’s what they’re for, right?

You’d be wrong! These rightwing jabronies are FOR the fascist oppressors… they’re for the oligarch thieves… they’re for Clan Balogh and the Brotherhood and Svoboda… that’s right, they OPPOSE the people who’re standing tall against oppression. Cliven Bundy can brandish guns at government agents and be called a hero… the free men of Novorossiya fight fascist filth (who glorify Nazi collaborators, no less) and get called dupes. I’ll retire to Bedlam with Mr Scrooge… this is so Jabberwockian that even the Queen of Hearts looks positively normal in comparison.

If you’re for “the right to keep and bear arms”, then, you support the right of all free men to do so… the people I named do not. SCOUNDRELS AND PISSANTS (Cordell  Hull was right)!

3 September 2014. National Review Chock Fulla Shit on Novorossiya… Wrote ROFL Editorial in 8 September Print Edition

00 place for heroism. 02.09.14

Here’s a real heroine (she was one of the kids who defended Lisichansk)… you can stand with her… or you can stand with the gutless wonder Rich Lowry… who (like most of the rightwing punditocracy) refused to serve with the colours. I know where I stand… what about you?


The National Review is mud-ignorant on all things Russian, its editorial in the 8 September print edition proved that, even for the slow learners. It’s full of absolute hooey and outright falsehood. Their stupidity, rigidity, and Anglo American inferiority complex was on display for all to see. Here it is:

Politically and diplomatically, the Ukrainian crisis seems to be gradually calming down. The Ukrainian and Russian foreign ministers met in Berlin and agreed in principle to allow a Russian “humanitarian” convoy to enter the Eastern Ukraine (sic). Though there was no agreement on a ceasefire between “pro-Russian” separatists (sic) and Ukrainian (sic) forces, all sides plan a major diplomatic push to end the conflict. Europe and Russia would both like to de-escalate a crisis that has led to sanctions that are weakening already-stagnant economies on both sides. The Ukraine will need massive economic assistance from Europe, together with a compromise deal with Moscow on energy supplies, to give its feeble economy at least some chance of post-war recovery. However, the military conflict continues. The number of dead civilians has passed the 2,000 mark.

A few days before the foreign minister met, two British journalists saw a Russian armoured column crossing the border by {that account is a proven lie… there’s no evidence to back it up: editor}. According to the Ukrainian president, it was then largely destroyed {where are the images of the destroyed vehicles? The VSN (Novorossiyan Armed Forces) provides such… but the fascists don’t… telling, no?: editor}. Insofar as the fog of war allows us to judge, Kiev seems close to establishing control of the Eastern Ukraine (sic). Its forces are now fighting inside one of the two remaining cities under separatist (sic) control, and besieging the other {of course, all the press releases from the junta are absolutely truthful, aren’t they?: editor}. The separatists are retreating… and in the case of their “leaders”, resigning, too. Diplomats will now argue for a compromise peace that allows Putin to call off his adventure without losing too much face. That’s reasonable in itself… the conflict is damaging everyone, and its early solution would benefit all. But the terms of the compromise, while they will almost certainly involve some regional autonomy and some cultural protection for ethnic Russian Ukrainians, must neither dilute Kiev’s sovereignty over the eastern Ukraine (sic) nor create conditions for future Kremlin meddling nor ratify its annexation of the Crimea. If we can reach a settlement that respects those conditions, then the Ukrainian crisis will have strengthened the West, underpinned the post-Cold War order in Europe, and set clear limits to Moscow’s neo-imperial ambitions.

That’s some unhinged shit, isn’t it? The offensive by the VSN on the southern strategic direction kicked off on 23 August… eleven days ago. Note well that NR accepted Uniate junta claims with no backup images… bad dog, Richie boy… are you always that slipshod in verifying intel? However, give Mr Lowry some slack… he’s another one of those Hard Right chicken hawks… he screams for war incessantly, yet he’s a gutless yellow coward who refused to serve in the forces himself. That is, he’s a worthless windbag slinker worthy of SEVERAL white feathers.

Today, the VSN has smashed the Uniate junta forces in Novorossiya in open battle. The junta has no reliable formed units left. It’s calling another mobilisation as most men dodged the draft in earlier calls (and most will dodge this call, too). This time around, they’re pressganging college students as they’re raiding dorms. However, they’re simply throwing these poor guys in a uniform and giving them an avtomat, but they’re not training them, they just send them off to the front, where the VSN eats them up alive and mow them down. You see, the VSN is fighting for their homes… the junta pigs murdered the families of VSN soldiers in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk. Trust me, there are tons of “revengers” in the VSN… they’re marching on Kiev! Besides which, most of the long-service officers of the prewar Ukrainian forces have now rallied to the patriot side and fight the junta.

Shall Mr Lowry admit that his howler of an editorial is complete and utter hooey? Lugansk is free of enemy forces and Donetsk is reducing the pockets of remaining junta resistance. The VSN has made its first advances outside of LNR/DNR territory. Note well that Mr Lowry said nothing of the deliberate junta airstrikes and artillery bombardments of civilian neighbourhoods. Note well that Mr Lowry gave NO proof for any of his accusations against Russia. Note well that Mr Lowry is silent about the American role in the putsch and in the subsequent aggression against Novorossiya. Note well that Mr Lowry says nothing about Chinese support for Russia. Note well that Mr Lowry was so lazy that he didn’t even know that the VSN counteroffensive was on when he wrote this editorial. When he wrote this, junta loyalists were fleeing Mariupol, clogging the roads in a massive traffic jam… Taruta was fleeing Mariupol in a military helicopter… President Putin made it clear that the junta would have to sit down with the LNR and DNR as equals… junta soldiers were dying in the pockets around Lugansk and Donetsk… the VSN secured all the major border crossing points in the LNR/DNR… junta soldiers were raping women and looting shops in besieged Mariupol.

In short, Mr Lowry is no journalist. He may be a publicist for the worse segment of the neocons, but he’s no journalist. He’s no worthy successor of William F Buckley. The fact that this editorial saw the light of day comments about the American “conservative” movement… it supports those who adulate S A Bandera. That says it all… the blood of the innocents murdered by Bandera will rise at the Last Day to accuse Rich Lowry and all those who stand with him… do note that it doesn’t faze them one bit. I call that evil… and I’m not alone.
