30 November 2016. You May Believe the Lies of the “White Helmets” and the Western Media or You May Believe VVP… There’s NO Middle Ground

President Putin ordered the deployment of mobile hospitals to aid the civilian victims of the American-enabled terrorists in Aleppo. Note well that the USA has done nothing of the sort… all that it does is to funnel arms to its terrorist surrogates via its proxies in the KSA and Gulf kleptocracies. People like Christiane Amanpour pour out lies about Russian and Iranian attacks on innocents and deny the obvious truth about American aid to terrorism, whilst spreading fibs about so-called “democratic enclaves” (which have less existence in the real world than the Jabberwocky).

You may applaud Vladimir Vladimirovich or you may applaud Christiane Amanpour. Which one you choose will tell the world much about your character…

28 November 2016. How Should Christians Respond to the Likes of Rod Dreher?

01 Commuist believers in Mukachevo

____________________________________________

I and a friend had a colloquy about Dreher. Basically, my attitude is, “If they don’t like our Church, why are they in it?” All of my friends in Russia are lefties… mostly, working-class commies who go to Church. The Party and Church made up way back in the 90s… Dreher won’t admit that, but only God can change Dreher’s mind… we can’t. He’s not alone, sadly enough. I’m surprised he hasn’t joined forces with that turd Matthew Heimbach. However, let him be. He’s lost in irrelevance, as far as Church matters go. As long as he posts no heresy, we should ignore him and his rants from now on. He shot his credibility during the brouhaha over Paffhausen’s “resignation”. If you want to talk about Paffso’s removal, if the Centre were behind him, he’d still be Metropolitan, and he isn’t. Note how they give Mollard things that they never gave Paffso.

There comes a time when you simply have to leave ranters be and let them maunder on. We all do have better things to do with our God-given time… if it comes down to our Holy Patriarch or Rod Dreher, there’s no contest. Leave him be… no good will come of any intervention or reply. It’s time to let this one go… it’s in God’s hands now.

I find the Green Party in the USA muted, a bit afraid to be fully socialist. However, that might just be me. James Connelly said:

Religion and race goes straight out the door when it comes to the struggle. If you advocate expelling one poor worker over another, no Christian are you.

I’ll add that the first Irish Socialists were often Protestant, so keep that in mind as well as Connelly’s influence on labour in Britain as a whole but, hopefully, in the USA as well. I’ll add this additional Connelly quote because it’s a wise one:

The day has passed for patching up the capitalist system; it must go. In the work of abolishing it, the Catholic and the Protestant, the Catholic and the Jew, the Catholic and the Freethinker, the Catholic and the Buddhist, the Catholic and the Mahometan will coöperate together, knowing no rivalry but the rivalry of endeavour toward an end beneficial to all. For, as we have said elsewhere, socialism is neither Protestant nor Catholic, Christian nor Freethinker, Buddhist, Mahometan, nor Jew; it’s only Human. We of the socialist working class realise that as we suffer together we must work together that we may enjoy together. We reject the firebrand of capitalist warfare and offer you the olive leaf of brotherhood and justice to and for all.

Don’t Forget Standing Rock

00-usa-standing-rock-protest-211116

____________________________________

Police are shooting rubber bullets and water cannon at the Standing Rock Sioux and peaceful #NoDAPL protesters in -3 degree (27 degrees Fahrenheit) weather. What’s happening at Standing Rock is nothing short of state-sponsored violence in the name of oil rights and corporate profits. The DOJ must immediately launch an investigation into the continuing human rights abuses being committed in North Dakota. Peaceful protest is a human right.
