______________________________

A “Meeting of the People’s Will” in the central square of Sevastopol gathered 20,000 people. The city chose Aleksei Chaly, a citizen of the Russian Federation, as mayor. Olga Timofeyeva, the leader of the human rights group “Ravelin”, said, “We want to deliver our administration from submitting to rats; we’re willing to go to the limit”. Before the demonstration, the executive committee of the Sevastopol Gorsoviet was afraid to act; they only decided to hold a referendum on  whether the city should form a special committee. Outraged citizens blockaded the Gorsoviet; they wouldn’t allow the deputies to leave the building.  Mayor Chaly said that his appointment reminded him of how the Red Army promoted generals during the crisis of 1942. He promised to attend to Sevastopol’s troubles in this difficult political time. At the rally, no one flew the “Ukrainian” flag… one saw only Russian tricolours, St Andrew ensigns, communist symbols, and the Belarusian flag. Sevastopol will hold a rally, “Forever with Russia”. Vladimir Yatsuba, Chairman of the Sevastopol Municipal Administration (GGA), initially didn’t want to make a public statement. However, he relented, and tried to appeal to Sevastopol citizens. He urged people to stay calm, not to succumb to provocateurs, and to stay united with the Ukraine. The outraged demonstrators shouted down this statement. The meeting voted to refuse to pay taxes to the junta in Kiev and subordinated all security forces to the city authorities.

Editor’s Note:

Neither CNN nor Fox reported this… if you wanted proof that they’re nothing but running dogs for the neoliberal establishment, this is it. BOTH are equally guilty. This proves that the kleptocratic Timoshenko junta in Kiev has no control over the country, but that it has American support. Is this Act One of the Ukraine’s dissolution into a Russian South/East and an American lickspittle client state in the West (the Centre is still up for grabs)? No one knows. However, do note that the pro-Russian faction upholds the real Church; the Uniates and schismatical Orthodox uphold the greedster pro-American lackeys. If you’re Orthodox… you have only one option… support the pro-Russian side and oppose the upstart Kiev junta with all your might. Also, note how the konvertsy loudmouths support the American subversion of the Ukraine… they’re not of us; they’re not bone of our bone, flesh of our flesh, soul of our soul. They’re ignorant loudmouths; we should press them to stand and deliver… otherwise, they’re traitors to the Orthosphere, simply put.

Please, pass this report on to as many people as you can… it’s how you can oppose the American-fomented putsch in the Ukraine.    

By the way… both artists of the paintings I used as illustrations were committed men of the left… both are (or were) sincere communists. I’d say that fact should tell you which folks are more worthy of credence. You can stand with leftists, who DO care for their fellow-man, or, with crapitalists, with their “Me First” selfishness (the worst of this lot are the greedy and self-righteousEvangelicals”, with their smarmy pseudo-religious veneer). That’s the only choice on offer… choose well…

27 November 2011. Been Busy Knockin’ the Art into Shape… Tote that Canvas! Lift that Palette! Perspirin’ Minds are Waiting!

Pavel Viktorovich Ryzhenko (1971-)

******

Vasili Igorevich Nesterenko (1967- ), People’s Artist of Russia… artist, patriot, Christian, and Communist… what’s not to like?

______________________________

I’ve been doing a major overhaul on my first art site, Art and Faith, in regards to two major contemproary Russian artists, Pavel Ryzhenko and Vasili Nesterenko. I found some new high-res images of their work and I replaced earlier low-res images with the righteous stuff. Here’s some examples:

******

Let Everything that Breathes Praise the Lord

Pavel Ryzhenko

If you liked that, click here and you’ll see all the Ryzhenko that’s posted on A&F.

Let’s take a different tack with Vasili Igorovich… here’s an image from his latest Manezh exhibition:

******

Deliverance from the Troubles

Vasili Nesterenko

2010

******

The “Smuta” (Time of Troubles) was a chaotic period in history when Poland invaded Russia and attempted to ram the Unia down our throats. Needless to say, they failed… but they did murder Patriarch St Germogen by starving him to death… nice folks, wot? One of the more IMPORTANT episodes in our history. We’re Orthodox today because Pozharsky and Minin whipped the Polacks and kicked their gnarly arses back to Poland.

______________________________

If you liked the preview of Nesterenko that you saw above, click here… it’ll take you to all the Nesterenko collected on A&F. He’s got everything from art for the new Cathedral of Christ the Saviour to portraits of the Castro brothers in Cuba. Put that in your hillbilly-moron crack-pipe and smoke it, Reardon… Christian and COMMUNIST… what a concept! Our Lord Christ is NOT a shill for the rightwing of the Republican Party, despite what you might hear from Paffhausen and Co.

I had much FUN working with the art over the weekend… I only hope that it’ll be a light in a corner of your soul… be good, kids…

The Unbeaten

______________________________

Any ONE of the genuine heroes pictured above is worthy of respect; all of the rightwing gasbags out there… including Patrick Henry Reardon… are beneath your contempt. THIS is what I stand for… the Holy Anointed Monarchy of the White and the Social Democracy of the Red… if Jack Layton (Blessed be his Memory) had become Canadian PM, he would have knelt before the Governor General (the Queen’s viceroy), as is right. He would also have ruled the country in a Social Democratic fashion and fought the rightwing Corporatist swine, which would also be right. I’m a determined and inflexible opponent of American Radical “Conservatism“, with its rejection of all the timeless verities (including God… the Religious Right has no REAL religion in it at all). I stand for the Cross AND the Crown AND the Red Banner… all at once, they’re not contradictory!

Pat Reardon is gassing his usual rightwing rubbish on Monomakhos. I’m not going to go on and on… that’s really the topic of another post. Ponder this… Tsar St Nikolai the Royal Martyr Passionbearer was NOT imprisoned by the Reds! The bourgeois pigs of Kerensky’s Masonic junta locked up our annointed tsar (don’t forget, ADS was a member of Kerensky’s zapadnik faction in Paris). The Church wouldn’t let Kerensky’s body be buried in consecrated ground… he was a Mason and the ultimate murderer of the tsar. Without Kerensky’s action, Tsar Nikolai Aleksandrovich and his family may have survived (certainly, the children would have, at least). That’s to say, the mercantile bourgeois cabal that pulled off the February Revolution were the same as contemporary American “conservatives“… just as Radical, just as godless, just as heedless of Tradition and Truth, and just as contemptuous of Legitimacy and Patriotism (after all, the New Right believes, “Let the poor die for our country… I have more important things to do”). Think on that. Here’s what His Holiness has to say on the attitudes that are the bedrock foundation of Me First American “Conservatism”:

If false values about what’s important, which are now being implanted in every way in the minds of our youth, take over… “It’s your life, seek pleasure, wealth, money, and success”… does such a system of moral orientation allow people to disregard their selfish impulses, to lay it all to the side, so that they could give their lives for their country? No, I don’t see how you could do it.

******

Consumers who wallow in luxury, who set great store by extravagance and comfort, aren’t capable of great deeds.

******

The modern economy is built largely on fraud; it creates money out of thin air. Money’s a token of human labour and of our God-given resources, such as coal, ore, and oil, along with our intelligence, physical labour, culture, and spirituality. However, every company produces its own money in the form of shares, which is passed onto the secondary market, becoming not just simple securities; they’re traded and used as items of speculation. If these mere phantasms earn billions, not even backed by labour or real capital, then, how can such an economy exist? Who’s going to pay for all of this? Why, the simple worker is going to, who produces the value behind all of this bubble. We need a fair economic system where money and capital are equivalent and are the expression of real work.

******

An economic system built only on the striving for profit, on indifference to the fate of people, on disregard for moral norms, is deprived of stability, and can collapse at any moment, burying the fate of people under its rubble.

******

Of course, there’s MUCH more from His Holiness, but this is enough for now. Here’s your choice… Reardon (and Paffahausen and all the rest of the ignorant konvertsy) or His Holiness. You can have Social Justice and Selfless Patriotism as His Holiness teaches or you can have Selfish Greed and Unpatriotic Cowardice as Reardon et al teach. I’ll give you a hint… Reardon looks favourably upon such amoral filth as Rush Limbaugh (four-times married and a coward who refused to serve) and Newt Gingrich (three-times married and another Chicken Hawk coward). Birds of a feather DO flock together! It sure tells you volumes about Reardon! I’m for His Holiness… even if I stand alone! I’ll confide that you won’t let me be solitary in my stand, though….

One last thought… when His Holiness attacks “Liberalism”, he attacks Classical Liberalism, which is the ultimate wellspring from whence American Contemporary “Conservatism” sprang. That is, he’s foursquare AGAINST the entire American “Conservative” project… that’s something that you should know, isn’t it?
