29 November 2016. Echoes of the Past: Artek Pioneer Camp in the 1980s… “Our Earth is So Small. Why Do We Need Wars?”

Artek in the Crimea was the jewel in the crown of all Pioneer camps in the USSR. When the Ukraine took it over in 1991, they let it go to rack and ruin (they stole all the maintenance money and the Uniate Bandura Strummers just didn’t seem to know how to run it right). When the Crimea came home to the Motherland in 2014, one of the state’s first priorities was to put the neglect and decay at Artek right. They did so, and in short order, too! Artek is back up and running, as good as ever. It does speak volumes about the Galician Uniate nationalists and their rants, doesn’t it? Russia put it right; the “Ukraine” let it rot. That, to me, is the epitaph of the Galician Uniate project… may God cut it short to lessen the suffering of the peoples in the notional “Ukraine”. They didn’t deserve what they got after 1991…

15 November 2016. Echoes of the Past: Closing Ceremony, 22nd Summer Olympics (4 August 1980, Moscow USSR)

____________________________________

The USA tried to ruin the 1980 Olympics… it boycotted them and pressured other countries to do so. The Anglos are sanctimonious and smarmy. I hate their pretence and their arrogant juvenile ways. They point the finger of censoriousness at others… whilst their own hands drip with the blood and gore of those they stepped on to steal their riches. One of the worst of the lot was Hillary Clinton… she threw tantrums… when she did so, she had countries bombed and people murdered. I’m glad that she lost the election. I’m not so sure about Trump either… “Make America great again”… I think not… The Trail of Tears, slavery, Wounded Knee, the Bonus Marchers, the “Gilded Age”, and Hiroshima, to name just a few. America isn’t unique, exceptional, or indispensable. It’s just a normal country like any other… which is why they should’ve taken part in the Moscow Olympics. However, the Anglos had to posture and preen themselves. They did it again this year… when will the foolishness end?
