To Taste Tyranny, All One Needs Is One Tyrant

February 1, 2021

In the title, I tried to parallel the famous quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in his The Gulag Archipelago. The book is full of quotes that apply today in our rush toward full totalitarian rule, all accomplished by a so-called virus (one of billions on a healthy human) that we can’t even isolate.

In Canada, we have many examples of want-to-be tyrants. We can start with the prime minister Justin Trudeau. Take any of the provincial and territorial premiers. National and provincial Health Officers qualify. Even the police are potential tyrants. Politicians are drafting legislation to make opinions that oppose government ideology “domestic terrorists.” Here’s what happened to those innocents in Russia.

If we don’t take action, this will be the destiny of Canadians. Government and its agencies are already harassing and committing crimes against Christians, ignoring our Constitutional freedoms. Yes, under cover of darkness, police handing out $880 tickets for going to church!

But some Christians are taking action against tyranny. Take a look here. Let’s do it together.

I close with one final quote from the Gulag, in which we find the famous quote “We didn’t love freedom enough.”

Putin to Add Noahide Law to Russian Constitution

Charging Interest is Immoral and Unchristian for Certain Types of Loans

December 16, 2019

Apparently the bible references usury several times. And if you do an internet search (with Google), you’ll get over 6 million results. So people have a lot to say about it.

Hilaire Belloc had something to say about usury and I’ve copied from the Russian Faith website (probably because I’m too lazy to look it up myself).


This article is an excerpt from Hilaire Belloc’s book: Economics for Helen – A Brief Outline of Real Economy.

Usury, the last subject but one on which I am going to touch in this book, is one which modern people have almost entirely forgotten, and which you will not find mentioned in any book on Economics that I know. Yet its vital importance was recognised throughout all history until quite lately, and it is already forcing itself upon modern people’s notice whether they like it or now. So it is as well to understand it betimes, for it is going to be discussed very widely in the near future.

All codes of law and all writers on morals from the beginning of anything we know about human society have denounced as wrong the practice of USURY.

They have recognised that this practice does grave harm to the State and to society as a whole, and must, therefore, as far as possible, be forbidden.

Now what is Usury, and why does it thus do harm?

Modern people have so far forgotten this exceedingly important matter that they have come to use the word “usury” loosely for “the taking of high interest on a loan.” That is very muddled thinking indeed, as you will see in a moment. The character of Usury has nothing to do with the taking of high or low interest. It is concerned with something quite different.

Usury is the taking of any interest whatever on an UNPRODUCTIVE loan.

Syria: Russian worshippers visit ancient Orthodox monastery in Maaloula

April 19, 2019


As Obama “mourns” the loss of one iconic Cathedral, remember that this is the same man who armed Al-Qaeda terrorists that attacked, looted and destroyed the churches and monasteries of ’s Maaloula, one of the oldest Christian towns in the world.


Russia Plans Massive Jesus Statue On Site Previously Reserved for Lenin & Stalin

March 24, 2019

The city of Vladivostok, the largest city in far eastern Russia, would like to erect an enormous statue of Jesus Christ atop a hill that was once set aside for a monument to the Soviet communist leader, Vladimir Lenin. Although the construction has not yet been authorized by the Russian Orthodox Church, the prospect of a large statue of Christ overlooking the Pacific Ocean has many of the Russian faithful excited.

In 1972, Soviet officials ordered the construction of a 98-ft-tall bronze statue of Lenin to be placed on the site, with a second statue of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin planned for a neighboring hill. Difficulties with the planning, however, caused the projects to be postponed repeatedly until they were ultimately scrapped around 1990. Since then the hills have been left bare.

The Unusual Story Behind Russia’s Most Famous Painting of Christ – Ivan Kramskoy’s ‘Christ in the Desert’

February 5, 2019

I like this story which tells what the artist had to do to feel right about “Christ in the Desert.” MW

A few months before he was due to graduate with honours from the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg, Ivan Kramskoy (1837-1887) organized the notorious ‘Revolt of the 14.”

He led a group of his best friends (who also happened to be the most promising students of the graduating class of 1864) as they marched into the university main office and furiously presented a list of complaints and demands to the administration.

Christian Homeschooling Booms in Russia – #1 in Europe

December 4, 2018

Because of the crisis conditions in modern government schools, more Russian families are switching to home education. Homeschooling is legal in Russia, and interest in it is growing every year. . . .


Editor’s note: Russia has the second highest population of homeschooling families in all of Europe. Homeschooling has been legal in Russia since 1992, and current estimates suggest that there are over 100,000 homeschoolers in Russia. These numbers are growing, as homeschooling continues to grow in popularity.

The following article, originally published on the official Russian Church site that deals with family issues, was translated by Fr. Joseph Gleason, an American Orthodox priest who lives in Russia with his wife and eight homeschooled children.

For many years now, a number of Russian cities have hosted regional homeschooling conferences. This article celebrates the first international homeschooling conference held in Russia, with representatives attending from all over the world. This rising interest in homeschooling is an example of Russia’s return to traditional family values. Thanks to the hard work of Christians like Fr. Dimitry Smirnov and Irina Shamolina,homeschooling is finally becoming popular in Russia.

Volunteer Workers Restoring Historic Churches in the Russian North

October 2, 2018

They clear rubble and remove debris from the churches, carry out emergency and conservation works, install icons, and invite clergymen to perform services. After the departure of the volunteers, local residents continue the restoration work. Many church communities are being rebuilt.

Common Cause: Rescuing Wooden Churches of the North” is a project committed to preserving ancient Orthodox churches and monuments of wooden architecture in the northern parts of Russia, including the regions of Arkhangelsk, Vologda, Karelia, and Komi.

In the Russian North, one encounters amazing wooden churches and chapels, built several centuries ago. Sadly, during the years of Soviet power, a huge number of churches had been burned, converted into clubs and warehouses, or simply left in desolation and disrepair.

This group does the work necessary to identify these churches, and to do the work necessary to restore them, preserve them, and pass them on to the next generation. First of all, it is important to carry out emergency work: to repair the roof, close the windows, and replace wood that has rotten in certain key places. If this is not done quickly, many wooden churches will soon be destroyed by the weather. Already, hundreds of northern churches have disappeared forever.

The project began in 2006, thanks to the work of Alexander Porfirievich Slepinin, a 75-year-old grandfather. At his own expense, in the Pomor village of Vorzogory, he began to cover the roof of the bell tower. Finding out about this good deed, the parishioners of several Moscow churches began to help him. The project was supported by Archpriest Dmitry Smirnov. Today the project is carried out with the blessing of Bishop John of Domodedovo, and Metropolitan Daniel of Arkhangelsk and Kholmogory. Patriarch Kirill has highly praised the work performed by this project.

Within the framework of this project, hundreds of volunteers are sent to the North every year. These restoration projects are documented in numerous videos available on YouTube (Russian language).Traditionally, the expeditions are attended by teachers and students of the Sretensky and Nikolo-Ugreshsky seminaries, the youth of the Podpornya Optina desert and many other churches in Moscow. The project coordination center is located at the Church of St. Seraphim of Sarov in Raev in Moscow.

Project volunteers clear rubble and remove debris from the churches, carry out emergency and conservation works, install icons, and invite clergymen to perform services. Local residents take an active part in this effort, and after the departure of the volunteers, they continue to take care of the restoration of their holy places. Many church communities are being rebuilt.

350 churches and chapels have been identified that need help in these regions. Over the past 11 years, there have been 270 volunteer expeditions, which have performed restoration work in 137 of these churches and chapels. This project continues to organize volunteer expeditions every year.

What Do Today’s TV Talking Heads Have In Common With Famous Mass Murderers?

July 22, 2018

th (1)

Consider Trotsky and Stalin who murdered 60 million Christians (almost twice the population of Canada) in Russia, or any other mass murderer such as Mao. If these psychotic killers were alive today, and appeared together on CNN as “expert” talking heads, what would you expect? Well, you’d expect them to debate the finer details of how to kill, since they all believe in killing. But what about today’s hundreds of “expert” talking heads on Zionist-owned CNN and FOXNEWS and ABC and CBC and CTV and others? Are they really “debating”? Take a look at the list below.

NOTE: For those who don’t get the point of the list below: the people listed are not all corrupt or over-rated or talentless. The point is that Jews — who make up less than 2% of the population of the United States, less than 1% of Canada, and less than half a percent of the population in the U.K. — have a death-grip on Anglo-American media, politics, and society. Even if certain of them are talented and hardworking and clever, they keep out non-Jews who could do better, and destroy the careers of anyone who threatens their power, and discourage many non-Jews (esp. those unwilling to kowtow or ponder to Judonia or support their lies and larceny or feed their chutzpah-egos) from going into law, finance, politics, the arts, the news industry, et cetera.

Whether you’re left, or right, or a libertarian, or an anarchist, or a paleoconservative, or a socialist, or a hedonist, or into movies, or reggae, or rap, or fashion, or comic books, or shopping, or T.V., or science fiction, or comedy, or journalism, or publishing, or the law; or studying larceny, or blackmail, or colonialism, or the slave trade, or smuggling, or the arms industry, or dope, or philosophy, or history, or human rights, or psychiatry, or the environment, or whatever — tens of thousand of interconnected, psychopathic, over-hyped, loud-mouthed, obnoxious, no-talent or over-rated, jumped-up Jewish hacks, warblers, scribblers, pornographers, terrorists, hams, perverts, smut-merchants, banksters, gangsters, killers, and scam-artists are trying or have succeeded in circumscribing the limits of your freedom, and are controlling your schools and airwaves and libraries and journals and magazines and talk shows and newspapers and perceptions and ideas and thoughts and attitudes and perspectives and visions.

The effect of this Jewish control on ostensibly Christian host-societies can be measured in degrees of corruption, blasphemy, larceny, pornography, brainwashing, egotism, selfishness, abortion, delusion and deception; and can be measured in the level of warfare being conducted against any nation, person or thing that is viewed by Jews as a threat to the Jewish State, the Jewish Money Power, the Jew Stream Media, and universal Jewish domination.

A Jew or Jews debating with another Jew or other Jews on or in a Jew-produced show or article on or in a Jew-owned-and/or-run network or publication, about something some other Jew or other Jews said about another Jew or other Jews on or in another Jew-produced show or article on or in a Jew-owned-and/or-run network or publication in relation to the activities of another Jew or other Jews. [Plus the active and/or passive collaboration of those who serve, assist, enable, deny and/or defend Jewish domination of public discourse and non-organic culture.]

For example: Charles Krauthammer and Jonah Goldberg and David Horowitz debating with Michael Lerner and Naomi Klein and Amy Goodman on ABC about something Bill Kristol and Dennis Prager and Norman Podhoretz wrote about Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein in the New York Times, in relation to Ruth Bader Ginsburg or Susan Sontag or Karl Marx or Howie Levey / Anton Szandor LaVey or Lev Bronstein / “Trotsky” or Benjamin Satanyahoo or Honest Abe Foxman or Rosa Luxemburg or Ben Stein or Theodor Herzl or Ike Turner or Joe Lieberman or Bill Maher or David Miliband or General ? / Jakob Rosenfeld or Nicholas Sarkozy or Naomi Wolf or Erica Jong or Paul Gottfried or Andrea Dworkin or Gloria Allred or Daniel Ellsberg or Harvey Milk or Yousef “al-Qaeda” al-Khattab or Larry “Pull It” Silverstein or Marianne Faithful or Gloria Steinem or Emma Goldman or William Kunstler or George Soros or Rabbi Meir Kahane or Alisa Rosenbaum / Ayn Rand or Leon Uris or Rabbi Schmuley Boteach or Rahm Israel Emanuel or Benjamin Shalom Bernanke or Alan Greenspan or Betty Friedan or Adam Yahiye “al-Qaeda” Gadahn or Murray Rothstein / Sumner Redstone or Larry Kramer or Fairuza Balk or Jonathan Adhout or Rob Reiner or Kivie Kaplan or Stanley Levison or Allen “naked kids have been a staple of delight for centuries … to label pedophilia as criminal is ridiculous” Ginsberg or Barry Levinson or Joseph Levitch / Jerry Lewis or Michael Mann or Elaine May or Dick Wolf or Paul Mazursky or John Milius or Paul Newman or Sandra Bernhard or Steven Spielberg or David Geffen or Jeffrey Katzenberg or Murray Rothbard or Felix Frankfurter or Irving Kristol or John Podhoretz or Abbie Hoffman or Bill Graham or Jerry Rubin or Marty Peretz or Jeff Jacoby or Irv Rubin or Norman Ornstein or Bennet Cerf or Richard Perle or John Stewart Liebowitz or Ken Roth or Jerry Zucker or Christopher Hitchens or Peter Hitchens or Annie Liebowitz or Marcel Mangel/Marceau or David Brooks or Michael King or David Frum or Michael Eisner or Bernard Kouchner or Shimon Persky/Peres or Wolf Blitzer or Ted Koppel or Dennis Ross or Larry King or Andrea Koppel or Mike Wallace or Barbara Walters or Ilana Mercer or Michael Ledeen or Heather Graham or Phil Bronstein or Michael Savage or Michael Medved or David Reznik or Sandy Berger or Woody Allen or Roman Polanski or Richard Cohen or Ariel Cohen or Mortimer Zuckerman or Alan Dershowitz or Jeffrey Goldberg or Henry Kissinger or Robert Reich or John Deutch or Robert Rubin or Mickey Kantor or Madeleine Albright or William S.

Russia has Built More Churches Over the Past 28 Years Than Any Other Country

[ Ed. note – One very important question Americans should ask themselves when trying to assess relations between the US and Russia, and to figure out why certain things are the way they are, is…of the two countries, Russia and America, which currently is moving toward a greater embrace of religious faith? And which is experiencing a lessening of spirituality and moving away from religious beliefs?

The answer, of course, is that the number of those in America who hold religious beliefs, most especially Christians, is dropping. This was the finding in a Pew Research poll released last year. The poll found that between 2007 and 2014, the number of Americans identifying as Christians declined from 78.4% to 70.6%. That’s still a pretty high portion of the population, but it does make for a 7.8% drop.

Over the same time period, those identifying as either atheist, agnostic, or no religion in particular rose from 16.1% to 22.8%–making for 6.7% rise. Interestingly, the number of Jews rose as well, but only slightly, from 1.7% of the population to 1.9%.  It would appear, then, that in the lives of increasing numbers of Americans, religion holds little to no importance. One wonders if this overall decline in spirituality might be a factor in such problems as crime and political corruption that are so prevalent now in America.

Russia seems to be going in the opposite direction, however. The Russian Orthodox Church has experienced phenomenal growth since the fall of communism. The Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow, dynamited at the order of Joseph Stalin in 1931, was rebuilt in the 1990s and reconsecrated in August of 2000. But as you’ll see from the article below, it wasn’t the only church constructed in the newly-revived Mother Russia–not by a long shot.

The problems with political corruption in America are certainly not new, but they have been particularly underscored by the current presidential campaign. At the same time, Russia’s Vladimir Putin has become one of the most respected leaders in the world today. This is not only the opinion of writers like Paul Craig Roberts, but was even grudgingly admitted to by a retired US general. Russia is clearly in the ascendant. The US empire, on the other hand, is in decline. Again, one cannot help pondering the question: how much of a role has spiritual faith, or lack thereof, played in these dynamics? My guess is that it has been a very big factor. ]


Russia Built 3 Churches Per Day, 1000 Per Year, for 28 Years–a World Record

Russia Insider

Religious faith in Russia never grew more intensively than in the past three decades, believes Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk.

The head of the Department of External Church Relations (DECR) spoke about religious faith in Russia, and its history and revival in recent decades at a meeting with a group of professors and 250 students from Italy on October 11, 2016, reports the DECR’s website.

“The epoch which we call ‘the second Baptism of Russia’ begun in our Church in 1988. The mass baptism of our population started in Russia in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s,” Metropolitan Hilarion said while relating the history of Orthodoxy in Russia to the Italian guests.

“Today we have 35,000 churches. That means that we have opened 29,000 churches over twenty-eight years, opening more than 1,000 churches per year or three per day… Earlier we had three theological seminaries or academies, and today there are over fifty,” the metropolitan stressed.

In Metropolitan Hilarion’s view, Russian history has “never witnessed such growth in religious faith as we have seen in the past twenty-eight years.”

“More than that, I know no other precedent of this kind anywhere throughout the history of mankind. We are aware that the epoch of St. Constantine the Great in the fourth century was a time when churches were built everywhere and mass baptisms took place. But there is no statistics for that period, while we do have statistics for the epoch we live in,” he added.

Noting that today many say that modern society lives in the post-Christian era, the representative of the Russian Orthodox Church said that it is not felt in Russia.

“With our own eyes we have seen the power of Christianity which enables us to open three churches per day today. We have witnessed how Christianity transforms human lives, to what extent Christ and His teaching are still important nowadays,” Metropolitan Hilarion said in conclusion.

Professors and students of schools under the Jesuit Order in Rome, Milan, Naples, Turin and Palermo took part in the meeting with the Chairman of the Department for External Church Relations.
