Desperation in Kiev

00 the ukraine aint dead yet.. but soon shall be. 09.06.15

______________________________

Driven by Kiev’s desperation… as the Ukrainian economy tanks, the IMF again refused billions of dollars of assistance previously promised… Europe increasingly withdraws its support, sceptical of Kiev’s denial of sending raiders to the Crimean peninsula… they’ve excluded Ukrainian President Poroshenko from September’s G20 meeting… the government is frantically trying to regain unconditional Western support. Even US Vice President Biden, the overseer of Washington’s “Ukrainian project”, appears to have worries about Kiev’s recklessness. Kiev won’t or can’t negotiate an end to the Ukrainian civil/proxy war. It seems determined to provoke a larger war with Russia to regain Western support, but its repeated claims that Putin is preparing a “new invasion” lack logic and no longer seem credible to Kiev’s former unconditional Western supporters. Stephen Cohen asked, “Can this tail again wag the dog, with dire consequences?”

The Ukrops fail to understand that the Americans will have no time for them until after January, as the election and ensuing transition absorb the Beltway crowd. A lot can happen before then…

27 August 2016. Our FIRST Duty as Christians…

00 moscow bp panteleimon patr tikhon quote 280816

______________________________

“All are brothers”… that’s why all Christians… nay, all DECENT PEOPLE of whatever belief… must reject Chilly Hilly, Trump the Chump, and Scary Gary. None of them believe that.

NONE OF THEM.

Let that sink in. None of them think that we owe anything to anyone else. NONE OF THEM. Let this sink in, too… the candidate closest to the Christian POV put forth by Patriarch St Tikhon is Jill Stein, a secularist Jew. None of the others believe that we must help the weaker amongst us… they all believe that the only responsibility of the state is to help the rich and bloated.

Christians must vote for Stein as she’s the only candidate that enunciates even part of what Christians believe. All the others have capitulated to and wholeheartedly support objective evil (remember, HH labelled Capitalism a horrendous fraud). If nothing else, Christians can’t support that; we must support objective good whenever we can, wherever we can, and in what measure we can. Vote for Stein… the only objectively good candidate.

We’re Christians; that’s what we should do…

26 August 2016. A Breath of Fresh Air on “Academic Freedom”

01 lets talk

______________________________

Here’s a good link to the University of Chicago story… with a link to the original letter. Here’s an excellent response:

Those lists of “safe space” are incredible. As a minority, foreigner, female, or any other disadvantaged (such as severe myopia? Short?), I prefer people to speak their mind to me to my face and not behind closed doors at their dinner table. People shouldn’t edit their thoughts and words for being concerned with being “politically correct”, “up-to-date”, or “open-minded”. When there’s disagreement, that’s when we need meaningful discussion or debate. To those demanding “safe space”, if you truly believe your ideology is right (and that “others” may do great damage), then, it’s almost your responsibility to start or join the discussion isn’t it? Why hide?

I hate speech suppression, but I hate ignorant bloviating just as much. Do speak… if you have the creds. For instance, I don’t have the medical or scientific creds to comment on the Jenner affair… so, I don’t. Do note that most of those commenting on it also lack such creds (what does that tell you about Dreher, Trenham, Reardon, Whiteford, et al?). Therefore, what weight should you give such vacuous commentary? I’d say that such talk is mere hot air; no decent person should attend to it, nor should you give attention to the asshats spouting it. That’s not suppression of speech… that’s called discernment… there’s a difference. To forbid Josiah Trenham to speak (so long as he has his bishop’s specific OK on a particular instance) is beyond the pale. To demand his creds to speak on this or that is kosher (indeed, one should always demand such). Have a care… there be phonies out there; many are “respectable” or clergy. Bite the coin… there be vile counterfeits in circulation.
