_______________________________

The Vulcan “Live long and prosper” gesture derives from the Jewish priestly blessingLeonard Nimoy said that he came up with it after remembering what he saw in Jewish services in his childhood… the Jewish gesture looked cool, alien, and mysterious, so, it became part of Star Trek. My thanks to the Cabineteer who came up with it. I wrote them:

 I’ve learnt a lot today. That’s what I like about this… I learn something new every day…

That’s what makes this so fascinating… I learn something new every day in the course of my research.

28 February 2015. Didya Know What “Nimoy” (Нимой) Means in English?

01 red-question-mark

_______________________________

The word Нимой in Russian means “mute”… “unspeaking”. There’s no doubt that Leonard Nimoy‘s people came from Grodno Guberniya (in present-day Belarus). You’d also like to know that his zayde was a passionate socialist, a keen reader of the Forverts (Jewish Daily Forward). For years, Leonard Nimoy hung out at the Science Museum in Boston… he was passionately involved with real science. He’s not the only famous actor with a Russian connection… there’s also David Duchovny (Духовний)… he starred in the spooky X-Files. His surname means “spiritual”… believe it or not! Hmm… Jack Palance of the spooky voice was actually Vladimir Palaniuk of Luzerne County in NEPA… just as Natalie Wood was really Natalia Nikolaevna Zacharenko of San Francisco CA. Her parents were from Siberia… they weren’t “Ukrainian” at all. Yes… she stayed a loyal Russian Orthodox Christian all her life. You see, some names do have meanings… for instance “Fireri” (of Guy Fieri of the Food Network) means “proud” in English… and Guy Fieri does have a whole lotta chutzpah and confidence.

My thanks to the Cabineteer who proposed this idea. Some of my best ideas come from my friends… I’m truly blessed…

______________________________

Leonard Nimoy‘s roots were in Belarus… he spoke Yiddish as well as he spoke English (he acted in the Yiddish theatre in his younger years). We all grew up with him in Star Trek… another one of our adolescent icons bites the dust. I hope that he finds peace. You CAN light a candle for him tomorrow… there’s no limit on such things by private people. Say a prayer for his soul as you do so. We’re Christians, that’s what we do…

Вечная память

Live long and prosper…

KPRF Launches “Krasnaya Liniya” (Red Line)… Online and Broadcast TV Outlet

00 The Whole Truth. 10.11.13

______________________________

The KPRF launched a new initiative… Красная Линия (Krasnaya Liniya: Red Line). It’s an online/broadcast TV media outlet. Here’s its mission statement on its website:

TV Channel Red Line is a new KPRF informational outlet, available to all internet users at www.rline.tv. Our main objective is to be a source of information, as well as a discussion platform, for intelligent thoughtful people concerned about the way Russia and the world will evolve in the coming years. Politics, economics, education, health, national defence, and public utilities are critical topics for modern Russian society. We’ll discuss these issues and propose ways to address them, giving the communist viewpoint, together with the views of independent experts and of activists of other political and public associations. Red Line will broadcast around the clock. Most of the airtime will be its own programming… documentaries, special reports, political talk shows, interviews with scientists, politicians, economists, and public figures, many of whom, for various reasons, have long been “blacklisted” on federal TV channels. The main goal in preparing programmes for broadcast is to give an alternative view of the current problems of society, different from that imposed on the viewer by state and right-liberal media. We’re adamant… modern audiences today sorely lack political, economic, and social reporting, along with heated discussions and comments. Red Line is ready to offer all of this to its viewers.

The lying CIA filth at Radio Liberty didn’t post this in its entirety. Here’s what it posted:

A statement on the channel’s website said, “Our mission is to become a source of information and a platform for discussions among smart, thinking people, who are not indifferent to the ways Russia and the world are developing” (compare this to my second sentence above).

The channel said it would be airing documentary films, special reports, political talk shows, and interviews with scholars, politicians, economists and public figures who “for various reasons have been blocked from access to federal channels”.

If you needed proof that Victor Potapov is a lying Republican POS propagandist… here it is. Note well that the Red Line post is 205 words, short enough to post in its entirety. Also, note that the Langley asshats didn’t give you a URL for Red Line, so that you could check things for yourself. This means that Potapov isn’t only base in motive (attacking the Motherland in the interests of Corporate America)… he’s a conniving Langley denizen who won’t give you “the truth and nothing but the truth”. He IS a smooth article and one of the most “sincere” and “convincing” salesmen out there. He does fool the superficial gullible (such as Freddy M-G and Dreher)… do remember Potapov’s vicious attack on the late Patriarch Aleksei in Georgetown… he does spring from the KONR milieu.

By the way, the RFE/RL translation is more “word-for-word” than mine is (I’m of the dynamic equivalence school)… that indicates an unskilled, inexperienced, or incompetent translator. It tells you much about their English language posts, doesn’t it?

Again, note the use of “liberal” in Russian terms to denote Anglosphere “conservatism”… that trips up Whiteford every time. Liberal = Rush Limbaugh… any questions?
