Arguably, the Maidan coup that installed the Yatsenyuk/Poroshenko regime in Ukraine was and is just one more phase in the West’s war on Orthodox Christianity.

Priest attacked in Kiev dies

Priest Roman Nikolayev

Moscow, July 29, Interfax – Kiev priest Roman Nikolayev (Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate), died of gunshot wounds on Wednesday morning at the age of 40.

“The venue of the funeral service and the burial place of the newly departed priest Roman Nikolayev will be reported later,” the Ukrainian Orthodox Church reported on its website.

The priest, who was prior of the Church of Great Martyr Tatiana in Kiev, was attacked in a residential building on Heroyev Stalinhrada Avenue in Kiev in the early hours of July 26. The attackers fired two shots to his head.

The attackers left after the attack and the priest was found on the staircase by his neighbor, who called the police. The attackers did not rob the priest.

Father Roman was in a coma before he died.

The investigative branch of the district department has entered the information into the unified register of pretrial investigations based on Part 2 of Article 115 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (premeditated murder). A pretrial investigation is underway.

Moscow Times: Orthodox Priest Dies Days After Being Gunned Down in Kiev

A 41-year-old priest from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church’s Moscow Patriarchate died on Wednesday after having been shot by two unknown assailants in Kiev, the church’s press service said in a statement.

Roman Nikolayev, a priest at Kiev’s St. Tatiana Church, was shot twice in the head on Sunday at the entrance to his apartment. He then fell into a coma from which he never recovered.

None of Nikolayev’s possessions were stolen. The investigation is still ongoing and no police details have been released, according to the church’s statement.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate enjoys a substantial degree of autonomy, but is still formally subordinate to Moscow. It has more parishes than any other church in Ukraine. The Kiev government supports the Ukrainian Church of the Kiev Patriarchate, which split from the Moscow Patriarchate in 1992 and is completely independent from it.

Nun of Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate murdered in Kiev

Moscow, July 29, Interfax – Sister Alevtina, a nun of Florovsky Convent in Kiev, was found murdered in her apartment on Wednesday, Interfax-Religion was told at the Union of Christian Orthodox Brotherhoods of Ukraine.

“We know that she went to her city apartment to wash and change before undergoing a surgical operation [there is no hot water in the convent at present]. However, later her nephew found the nun’s body with her hands tied and traces of torture,” a spokesman said.

The late nun was 62 years old.

Interfax has not obtained any official information on the case from law enforcers in Kiev.

This is the second murder of a member of the clergy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate in a few days.

On Wednesday morning a 40-year old priest of the Church of St. Tatiana in Kiev, Father Roman Nikolayev, died of gunshot wounds to the head inflicted last week.

A reflection on terminology:

At least in the US, the concepts of “human capital” and “human resources” should invite an investigation of Thirteenth Amendment issues. Human beings are neither capital nor resources.

Back in the day, corporate officials who were responsible for hiring, payroll, and the like, worked in the Personnel Department. That term was respectful: PERSONS.

Those days are long gone, unlikely ever to return in the west.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

#PPSellsBabyParts EX-CLINIC WORKER REVEALS PROFIT MOTIVE IN PLANNED PARENTHOOD BABY PARTS SALES, VP MEDICAL DIRECTOR PRICES BODY PARTS “PER ITEM”

“We Can See How Much We Can Get Out of It,” says Planned Parenthood Affiliate VP; Whistleblower Who Harvested Aborted Baby Parts Details Traumatic Job in Planned Parenthood Clinics in New Documentary Web Series

Contact: Peter Robbio, probbio@crcpublicrelations.com, 703.683.5004

LOS ANGELES, July 28–The first episode in a new documentary web series features a woman who once worked in Planned Parenthood clinics describing the profit motive involved in Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted fetal body parts, and includes new admissions from top-level Planned Parenthood leadership about the illicit pricing structure.

The “Human Capital” documentary web series is produced by The Center for Medical Progress and integrates expert interviews, eyewitness accounts, and real-life undercover interactions to tell the story of Planned Parenthood’s commercial exploitation of aborted fetal tissue. Episode 1, “Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts,” launches today at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xw2xi…

Episode 1 introduces Holly O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012. “I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” says O’Donnell, who fainted in shock on her first day of work in a Planned Parenthood clinic when suddenly asked to dissect a freshly-aborted fetus during her on-the-job training.

For 6 months, O’Donnell’s job was to identify pregnant women at Planned Parenthood who met criteria for fetal tissue orders and to harvest the fetal body parts after their abortions. O’Donnell describes the financial benefit Planned Parenthood received from StemExpress: “For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.”

Episode 1 also shows undercover video featuring the Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) in Denver, CO, Dr. Savita Ginde. PPRM is one of the largest and wealthiest Planned Parenthood affiliates and operates clinics in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Nevada. Standing in the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic pathology laboratory, where fetuses are brought after abortions, Ginde concludes that payment per organ removed from a fetus will be the most beneficial to Planned Parenthood: “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”

The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

Dr. Katherine Sheehan, Medical Director emerita of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest in San Diego, describes her affiliate’s long-time relationship with Advanced Bioscience Resources, a middleman company that has been providing aborted fetal organs since 1989: “We’ve been using them for over 10 years, really a long time, you know, just kind of renegotiated the contract. They’re doing the big government-level collections and things like that.”

“Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts is an offensive and horrifying reality that is widespread enough for many people to be available to give first-person testimony about it,” notes David Daleiden, Project Lead for The Center for Medical Progress. “CMP’s investigative journalism work will continue to surface more compelling eyewitness accounts and primary source evidence of Planned Parenthood’s trafficking and selling baby parts for profit. There should be an immediate moratorium on Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding while Congress and the states determine the full extent of the organization’s lawbreaking.”

Flavor of the month? Fetal liver with fava beans and chianti?

LifeNews.com: Ice Cream Shop Creates Planned Parenthood Flavor for Abortion Biz Called “Taste of Victory”

After receiving national criticism last year for creating an ice cream flavor for the Planned Parenthood abortion business, a Portland, Oregon ice cream shop is at it again — creating another new flavor this year for the abortion giant.

What’s the Scoop? is a sustainable, small-batch shop that creates ice cream and sorbets using liquid nitrogen – a revolutionary method that speeds up the freezing process, which translates into much smaller ice crystals and an extraordinary creaminess. Last year, they created the Rose City revolution flavor for Planned Parenthood, which combined honey vanilla ice cream and candied rose petal. Proceeds from the sale of the ice cream benefited Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon.

Now, What’s the Scoop is back with another new flavor just for Planned Parenthood:

While Planned Parenthood national is in hot water answering for their gruesome baby parts operation, one of their affiliates was holding an ice cream fundraiser.

What’s the Scoop Ice Cream Parlor posted to their Facebook page the good news that in the week that two top Planned Parenthood doctors were caught on tape bragging how they harvest baby parts, they helped them raise money…

Writes economics aficionada yenta-fada:

An interesting alternative to the CPI (Consumer Price Index). It measures the costs of 500 essential things that people need, and concludes that there is inflation.

http://www.chapwoodindex.com/

From the site:

The Chapwood Index reflects the true cost-of-living increase in America. Updated and released twice a year, it reports the unadjusted actual cost and price fluctuation of the top 500 items on which Americans spend their after-tax dollars in the 50 largest cities in the nation.

It exposes why middle-class Americans — salaried workers who are given routine pay hikes and retirees who depend on annual increases in their corporate pension and Social Security payments — can’t maintain their standard of living. Plainly and simply, the Index shows that their income can’t keep up with their expenses, and it explains why they increasingly have to turn to the government for entitlements to bail them out.

It’s because salary and benefit increases are pegged to the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which for more than a century has purported to reflect the fluctuation in prices for a typical “basket of goods” in American cities — but which actually hasn’t done that for more than 30 years.

The middle class has seen its purchasing power decline dramatically in the last three decades, forcing more and more people to seek entitlements when their savings are gone. And as long as pay raises and benefit increases are tied to a false CPI, this trend will continue.

The myth that the CPI represents the increase in our cost of living is why the Chapwood Index was created. What differentiates it from the CPI is simple, but critically important…

Let’s clarify two important issues here:

  1. The video refers to “democracy,” in other words, mob rule, which our Founders deplored. The United States was intended to be a republic of republics, and not a democracy.
  2. With regard to religion, the video mentioned churches and synagogues – in other words, the Judaeo-Christian tradition. Mosques lead only to violence.

Hungary Today has the story:

The question now is not merely what kind of Europe we, Hungarians would like to live in, but whether that which we call Europe today will at all survive”, Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán said at the 26th Bálványos Summer School and Student Camp held in Tusnádfürdő (Baile Tusnad) of Transylvania (Romania).

“Our answer is clear: we would like Europe to be preserved for the Europeans”, he added. The Hungarian Prime Minister emphasized that modern-day mass migration is a consequence of political processes. In his view, the real threat is not coming from war zones, but from the depths of Africa. The Hungarian Premier criticized harshly both the European and Hungarian left-wing elites, which, he said, do not perceive immigration as a source of danger but as an opportunity. According to Viktor Orbán, the left believes that the escalation of migration may definitively debilitate, or even eliminate, national boundaries, and this would constitute the attainment of the long-term objective of the left in a historical perspective.

“While the Hungarian left incited against Hungarians beyond the borders in 2004, they would today readily embrace illegal migrants, and would await them with open arms. These people, these politicians quite simply do not like the Hungarian people”, Orbán concluded. He added: if the left had been given the chance to form a government in 2014, “within a year or two, we would not recognise our country; we would be like a refugee camp”. As for the fence on Hungary’s border with Serbia, it will be built by 31 August; any other dates are invalid, Viktor Orbán announced. “Based on experiences to date, the number of illegal border-crossers decreases to one-sixth to one-seventh immediately after the construction of such border fences. I am expecting a large-scale improvement as a result of this measure”, he said.

Viktor Orbán also informed his audience of the results of the national consultation on immigration and terrorism. He pointed out that 1,000,254 questionnaires were completed and sent back, and according to the results, 95 per cent take the view that Hungarian families and the children to be born should be supported, instead of immigration. More than two thirds of Hungarian people find the issue of the spread of terrorism relevant to their own lives. Three quarters of them believe that illegal migrants are a threat to the jobs and livelihood of the Hungarian people. Four fifths take the view that the policy of Brussels regarding immigration and terrorism has failed, he said.

Chart here (PDF)

Dear Friends,

We are sending attached a chart comparing Halal and Kosher for your reference. The chart was compiled by a Victorian member of the society, a retired educator who spent many hours on researching both Halal and Kosher.

Given the rising awareness how the spread of Islam is funded and the increasing number of Australians concerned about Halal certification schemes, we believe this chart to be an important tool for friends and supporters.

It is easy to fall for the oversimplification of lazy journalists and falsely propagated commonalities, when we don’t understand the laws, processes and key differences. Please feel encouraged to spread the Halal / Kosher chart and make this information available to your connections.

The Senate inquiry into third party certification of food products is still accepting submissions. While Q Society will make a submission later this month, we encourage you to make your own voice heard. See here for more details and the terms of reference: [LINK]

Many friends and supporters have worked hard to encourage our political representatives to investigate in particular the Halal certification schemes. Let’s not waste this opportunity.

Kind Regards,

Raoul @ Q Admin

Real Clear Politics: How and Why to Kill the Iran Deal

By Caroline Glick – July 24, 2015
[…]
As far as the Obama administration is concerned, now that the UN Security Council has anchored the agreement in a binding resolution and so given the force of international law to a deal that guarantees Iran will receives the bomb and $150b., the deal is done. It cannot be walked back.

But this is not necessarily true. Congress may have more power than it realizes to kill the deal before Iran gets the money and before its other provisions are implemented.

Over the months leading up to the conclusion of negotiations last Tuesday, Obama refused to acknowledge that he was negotiating a treaty. Rather he said it was nothing more than an executive agreement.

Consequently, he argued, the US Senate’s sole authority to ratify treaties by two-thirds majority would be inapplicable to the deal with Iran.

Obama also said he would further sideline Congress by anchoring the deal in a binding UN Security Council resolution. This resolution would force Obama’s successor to uphold the deal after he leaves office.

Obama mitigated his position slightly when Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, drafted the Corker-Cardin bill with veto-proof majorities in both houses. The bill, which Obama reluctantly signed into law, requires Obama to submit the deal to an up or down vote in both houses. If more than two thirds of Senators and Congressmen oppose it, then the US will not abrogate its unilateral sanctions against Iran.

In other words, Obama agreed that if Congress turned the Constitution on its head by replacing the two-thirds Senate majority required to approve a treaty with a two-thirds bicameral majority necessary to disapprove his executive agreement – then he wouldn’t go to the Security Council until after Congress voted.

When Obama betrayed his pledge and went to the Security Council on Monday, he gave Congress an opening to reconsider its position, ditch the restrictive Corker-Cardin law and reassert the Senate’s treaty approving authority.

As former US federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy argued in National Review last week, by among other things canceling the weapons and missile embargoes on Iran, the six-power deal with Iran went well beyond the scope of the Corker-Cardin law, which dealt only with nuclear sanctions relief. As a consequence, Congress can claim that there is no reason to invoke it.

Rather than invoke Corker-Cardin, Congress can pass a joint resolution determining that the deal with Iran is a treaty and announce that pursuant to the US Constitution, the Senate will schedule a vote on it within 30 days. Alternatively, Congress can condition the Iran deal’s legal stature on the passage of enabling legislation – that requires simple majorities in both houses.

80 % of the 50 million Muslims in the west are on welfare, they refuse to work said muslim expert. They discuss muslim lack of contribution the the western societies they reside in, the high crime rates, the high rate of welfare fraud and financial crimes.

Muslim arrive as refugees or illegals and deplete the wealth from the west to such an extent that it’s a threat to the security and financial stability in the west.

The welfare paid in EU is adopted to the income levels of workers and the cost of living in the EU. Welfare was never intended as foreign aid to enable mass immigration to Europe, but welfare is the magnet which pulls in ten of millions of new non-european immigrants to Europe.

If the required minimum amount to live on in Europe is $20,000 annually and 40 million muslims live on welfare, the cost is staggering 800 billion dollars annually only for the muslim immigrants. This amount may double if we take into account all other non-european immigrants living on welfare and add the cost of crime and social implosion the welfare mass immigration is causing.

Most politicians agree this is not working but almost nobody has a plan how to stop the continued mass immigration nor what to do with those how already is here in Europe depleting the EU economies.

The Cosa Nostra has never had the interests of the Italian people at heart. It’s all about power and profit for themselves, at the expense of Italians who are footing the bill.

Financial Times has the story:

Italy’s organised crime groups have demonstrated devious ingenuity in everything from drug trafficking and prostitution to extortion and counterfeiting.

Now they have found a new source of illicit profits: the migration crisis that has seen thousands of asylum-seekers land on Italian shores after crossing the Mediterranean Sea from north Africa.

The care and feeding of such migrants may end up costing the Italian government as much as €800m per year, with it offering private individuals, companies and non-profit organisations up to €35 a day per person to host them. That includes a daily pocket money allowance of €2.50 that hosts are supposed to pay directly to the refugees.

Those funds have proven irresistible to the Mafia, according to Italian prosecutors and watchdog groups, who say criminal groups have succeeded at rigging the awarding of the contracts for the management of migrant reception centres in several high-profile cases.

“This is a very widespread problem. Welcoming migrants has become a big business,” says Gabriella Stramaccioni, who is charge of social policy at Libera, an anti-Mafia organisation. “We believe many centres are involved, in several cities,” she adds.

DeRp

by 1389 on July 24, 2015

in 1389 (blog admin), corruption, politics

Bipartisanship, eviscerated in the Urban Dictionary:

The contemporary DNC and GOP parties are one party. the DeRps.

Ignore what they say, watch what they do!

Your common DeRp wants government spending and lots of it. DeRps don’t care if they have to borrow it’s only important that all of their choice interest groups (hobbies) are fed at the end of the day. The only difference between the DNC and the GOP is what the spending goes toward. They’re consumers just like generation x women and no one takes their men seriously. The generation x women wear the pants in the DeRp house and they represent the marginal power of the DeRp vote.

If you’re into programmed reality TV shows, the DeRps offer a lot of sibling rivalry intrigue for your interactive enjoyment.

Of, consisting of, or supported by members of two parties, especially two major political parties: a DeRp resolution.

Bipartisan is a code-word for “the kids are playing nice together.”
