The Legacy Media & “Fake News Networks”

This is really delicious. I suppose I should follow Napoleon's advice and step out of the way. You know, when your enemy is in the process of imploding in all that. It's better to let him take himself out; if nothing else it saves you a lot of time and effort. What I'm talking about is the current meme going around Democratic circles that it was "fake news" that took Hillary down. And that it was perpetrated by Our Man Vlad deep in the bowels of the Kremlin. As Jon Lovitz used to say … [Read more...]

“Blessed are they Who Are Persecuted for Righteousness’ Sake”

Well, I guess it was only a matter of time before the Gaystapo found another target for persecution. It appears that Chip and Joanna Gaines, the wholesome couple who star in HGTV's Fixer Upper are devout Christians who attend a church who's pastor doesn't (get ready to grab the smelling salts here) believe in gay marriage! Imagine the shock. The horror. I suppose the tremendous loss that the Left recently experienced at the polls combined with the internal, incessant guilt that … [Read more...]

Comet Ping Pong: SMOKING GUN???

OK, this is weird. As you may know by now, there's a pizzeria in Washington, DC called Comet Ping Pong. It's billed as a "family friendly place" but the rumors swirling around it are decidedly not family friendly. It's owned by one James Alefantis, the paramour of David Brock, the head of Media Matters and a major bigwig in Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Comet Ping Pong appears to be the nexus of a paedophile ring. John and Tony Podesta, two other heavy hitters in the Democrat … [Read more...]

The Best of Russia –July 10-22

These have been a tumultuous couple of months, I think on this point we can all agree. As you all know, I've finished my travelogue on my recent trip to Russia. I hope you all enjoyed it. Truth be told, I'm afraid I didn't do it justice and for that I ask for your forgiveness. My mind is still overwhelmed by the experience --so much so that I have every intention of going back. On that note, I'd like to direct your attention to "The Best of Russia: 2017." Please take the time to read … [Read more...]

Are You Sure about that Sanctuary City Thing?

You Liberals, Progressives and other die-hard NeverTrumpers might want to rethink this whole defiant "Sanctuary Cities" position. Far be it from me as a contrarian (and that's where we Greeks tend to fall on the Rodney King/kum-ba-ya spectrum of things), I have a soft spot in my heart for defeated people who won't give up the cause, whatever that cause is. I guess that's why the Good Lord planted me in the South as well --a double dose of defiance. Especially if that cause is a … [Read more...]

More Wikileaks: The GOA and John Podesta

One of the things that has come out from different angles over the last year, is the nexus between the Phanar and the Globalist agenda. As noted last summer, the driving force for the Cretan Robber Council taking place were American, British and Israeli intelligence sources. That's why the Russian Orthodox Church engineered a successful boycott. That's it in a nutshell. Another tangent was revealed by Katehon.ru, a Russian website which exposed the connections between the IOCC, George … [Read more...]

What’s Going on in Brookline?

Well, this is interesting. We here at Monomakhos have been hearing rumblings coming from Holy Cross for about a year now. So far, we've decided not to comment as these complaints were rather vague, things like "administrative style" or "a possible homosexual subculture entrenching itself" or what-not. It's still hard to get a handle on what's really going on behind the scenes but it appears that a group of disgruntled students along with some faculty have decided to publicly air their … [Read more...]

Extremists Desecrate Shrine at Grave of Mother of God

Source: Pravoslavie On the morning of November 8, 2016, the feast of St. Demetrius of Thessaloniki, Israeli settlers, members of the radical right organization “Ateret Cohanim,” which has proclaimed as its goal the liberation of the Holy Land from all non-Jewish elements, desecrated the Tomb of the Most Holy Theotokos in the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem, reports Sedmitza.ru, with reference to the French Orthodox site orthodoxie.com. Jewish extremists destroyed the roof and … [Read more...]

Pilgrimage to Russia: Part VII-Finale

ST PETERSBURG Once we departed Diyeyevo and Nizhni-Novgorod (again) we embarked on the final leg of our journey: St Petersburg, Valaam and Kronstadt. What a whirlwind it all was. We spent half a day in St Petersburg because we had to travel by ship to Valaam later that evening. The highlight that day was going to the Peter-Paul Fortress and seeing the Romanov tsars buried there in magnificent, gleaming white sepulchres. Standing next to Peter the Great's tomb and then Catherine II … [Read more...]

Saving the American Republic

By Archpriest Alexander F. C. Webster Benjamin Franklin, one of our nation's greatest founding fathers, was asked by a resident of Philadelphia after the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” Franklin replied famously, “A republic, if you can keep it.” In the wee hours of this morning, we learned that God the Holy Trinity had bestowed an extraordinary gift of grace upon our American Republic … [Read more...]

“Save the Day”: the People’s Edition

Some time ago, Robert Downy Jr and Mark Ruffalo of The Avengers fame got together and did a cheeky video entitled "Save the Day." They recruited several Hollywood actors such as Scarlett Johanssen to speak to the public about why it was so important that America not elect a horribly racist xenophobe. Now don't get me wrong: I love the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. And I'm not going to stop seeing their movies just because I think Downy, Ruffalo, et al have an opinion about the new … [Read more...]

YEEEE-HAWWWW!

Boy did that Rebel Yell feel good! This is nothing less than an uprising. Our chains have been stricken. As I write this, Trump has breached the fabled Blue Wall. Without Wisconsin, there's no way that Hillary can win the 270 electoral votes needed to win the Presidency. I'm going to write more as the days come. For now I can safely say that the Trumpster sucker punched the Globalists and kicked them in the balls for good measure. If I may paraphrase Michael Moore (a man I … [Read more...]

How Did You Like Your Semen-and-Breast-Milk Souffle?

It's gotten to the point where it's plausible to think that we're living in some sick weirdo's computer simulation. What else can explain John Podesta's --the man who might become Hillary's Chief of Staff should she be elected--occult predilictions? This latest stuff from Wikileaks is just plain sick. I can't for the life of me understand why a normal man would want anything to do with a "performance artist" who serves people concoctions made of breast milk, placenta and semen. And he's … [Read more...]

Pat Condell: America’s Moment of Truth

Ever since I discovered Pat Condell on YouTube I've always liked him. Though an atheist, he reminds me a lot of Christopher Hitchens, also a moralist who was an atheist. That whole crew --Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, et al--don't understand that atheism and moralism really don't work together. It's nothing but a rhetorical club to bash Christians over the head because of their own moral lapses. Someday, I'll wax poetically on that but for now let's just chalk that up to a character defect. … [Read more...]

Curt Cobain: Prophet?

This graphic was sent to me several days ago. I decided to verify it and near as I can tell, it's legitimate. Kurt Cobain was a gifted musician, of this there can be no doubt. His group, Nirvana, was on its way to being the greatest rock group of the nineties. Like many musicians, he was a troubled soul; so much so that he took his own life at the height of his career. Like many musicians, he had insights that were preternatural in my opinion --the one quoted above would certainly … [Read more...]

Antiochian Episcopal Appointment Raises Concerns

This is somewhat painful for me to write for two reasons: first, my admiration for the Antiochian jurisdiction and second, because of own experiences with law enforcement brought upon because of my diabetes. As I understand it, Bishop Demetri Khoury had an altercation with law enforcement several years ago brought upon partly because of this same disease. As stated, I am in sympathy with him in this regard as I myself am afflicted with this disease and I can easily see how a person's … [Read more...]

AOI Weighs In on GOA Human Rights Award to NY Gov. Cuomo

Source: American Orthodox Institute Memo to Greek Orthodox Bishops: Stop Honoring Pro-Abortion Politicians By Fr. Johannes L. Jacobse Giving the Patriarch Athenagoras Human Rights Award to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was a mistake. Cuomo is a defensive tackle for the abortion industry. He uses the power of the state and his bully pulpit to bulldoze anyone who dares defend the unborn. Gov. Cuomo advocates for partial birth abortion through the ninth month of pregnancy. Maybe you … [Read more...]

Dikileaks

OK, I'm gonna continue to have lot of fun with this. The memes are positively hilarious. I mean really, this guy must be the most self-destructive individual in the political sphere. Either that, or the Russians not only hacked the NSA but planted these emails on Huma's laptop. Again, those Wascally Wussians! If you believe that I've got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you. Back to Wiener (no pun intended). Some are speculating that this is a diversion from what's coming down … [Read more...]

Hillary Gets Schlonged by Wiener

OK, I had to go with this. Personally, I'd rather go with another essay, one entitled "Gangster Governance" but events are rapidly spinning out of control. That being said, we don't have to be snarky and salacious but the endemic corruption of the Clinton campaign can't be divorced from her personal immorality and venality. It's all of a piece if you ask me. I mean, look at what we found out the other day from Wikileaks: that her flunkies have to "sober her up" at 4:30 in the … [Read more...]

We Few, We Happy Few, We Band of Brothers… (Brexit Edition)

Today is the Feast of St Crispin. On this day in 1415, King Henry V of England defeated an overwhelming force of French knights at Agincourt. One of the high points on my recent trip to England was gazing in awe at the tomb of Henry at Westminster Abbey. This rousing soliloquy is from Shakespere's Henry V, the 1944 film version with Sir Laurence Olivier. (An oldie but goodie from several years ago but given the triumph of the Brexit, I'm feeling a little skip in my step today. Enjoy!) … [Read more...]
