    Brown Revolution in Ukraine: BBC Legitimizes the Neo-Nazis

    A recent BBC article on the "far right" in Ukraine by David Stern is a perfect example of the mainstream media's effort to obfuscate and distort events in Ukraine to make the neo-nazis that dominated the anti-Yanukovych forces seem legitimate.

    Brown Revolution in Ukraine: Vitali Klitschko, A Profile in Opportunism

    The Brown Revolution leader most known, recognized, and respected by the West is former heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Unlike his allies Yatsenyuk and Tyahnybok, Klitschko's past makes him an unlikely participant in the neo-nazi led overthrow of legitimate rule in Ukraine.

    Sans-Culottes in the Subway

    Taking the subway a few days ago, a subway ad grabbed my attention. Usually, the ads on the Big Bunelo/Big Burrito (formerly known as the Big Bagel) subway involve such gems as: "The Alliance for Gay, Lesbian, Queer, Confused, and Bi Asian Youth", or "Addicted to Marijuana: Join This Confidential Study".

    Brown Revolution in Ukraine: The Neo-Nazis' Charm Offensive

    The radical organization "Right Sector" is the hidden force behind the armed overthrow of Viktor Yanukovych. Even the openly neo-nazi political party "Svoboda" led by the urologist-turned-aspiring fuhrer Oleh Tyahnybok seems almost respectable, compared to the militant thugs of "Right Sector".

    Brown Revolution in Ukraine: The Cowardice of Viktor Yanukovych

    The most surprising thing about the ongoing Brown Revolution in Ukraine is neither the West's support for neo-nazis, nor its immediate acceptance of the armed, violent overthrow of a legitimate president, whose election four years ago was deemed valid by the Eurocrats and the State Department.

    Brown Revolution in Ukraine: The Triumph of the Neo-Nazis

    The cowardly collapse of Viktor Yanukovych's legitimate government and the triumph of the violent, bloodthirsty neo-nazi-dominated revolutionaries may spell the last throes of modern Ukraine.

    Sochi Olympics, Ukraine, and the Media

    One of the biggest accomplishments of the Sochi Olympics has been its role in dousing the fires of the unrest in Ukraine - a fiery sequence of events that took the woefully unstable country to the brink of civil war.

    Sochi Olympics: About Russia With Hate

    It's the neocons, with their misplaced ethnic baggage, that take the cake for their hateful remarks about Putin and Russia.

    Sochi Olympics: Opening Ceremony

    The opening ceremony, which stunned and impressed the skeptical West, will probably be the most interesting part of the Sochi Olympics. The ceremony was Putin's Russia's attempt to re-introduce herself to the world and show that it's neither the old Soviet Union, nor the wrecked, pitiful Russia of Yeltsin.

    A Soviet Emigre on France I

    I recently stumbled onto a short, but excellent book by Soviet dissident author Anatoly Gladilin who moved to Paris in 1976 during the strongest days of Brezhnev and worked for Radio Liberty.

    Chris Matthews Calls Out the GOP on McCain

    The Arizona GOP (a species disappearing faster than the Amur tiger), came out with a strongly worded condemnation of John McCain. Seems like they had enough of Mr. Invite the World, Invade the World's support of amnesty for illegals, Obamacare, and "assaults on the Constitution and the 2nd amendment".

    John McCain's New Neo-Nazi Friend

    John "Invade the World, Invite the World" McCain is one of the loudest supporters of the anti-Russian, pro-EU forces in Ukraine, who are in armed rebellion against the legitimate (if bumbling and corrupt), government of Viktor Yanukovych.

    On Demons and Exorcism III

    After the last two blog posts, several readers and acquaintances asked me to recommend some books on the topic of demonic possession and exorcism. Over the last few years, I read several non-fiction books on the topic.

    On Demons and Exorcism II

    As I've mentioned in my previous blog entry, until I watched "The Exorcist" in late high school, I was more or less skeptical about the possibility of demonic possession. However, I did witness, what I to this day believe was an exorcism as a child in post-Soviet Moldova.

    Following the lead of Scott Richert, I read William Peter Blatty's "Legion". Blatty, the descendant of Lebanese Maronite Catholics is world-famous for his chilling and yet uplifting novel "The Exorcist", which he later adapted into an Academy Award-winning screenplay.

    Amiri Baraka: Race Hater not Poet

    The recent passing of "poet" Amiri Baraka set in motion an outpouring of grief by the mainstream media. The taxpayer-funded NPR called him "one of America's most important literary figures" and called his legacy "achingly beautiful".
