Greetings! Thank you for alerting me to the dead video links. I could not track down the Dateline story elsewhere, though the linked page features a video that might be available to Australians. It was inactive for me. I did find the Carlson segment—at least it is the one that I believe was originally linked.

I wish you the best. At my D.C. parish, we had an Aussie priest of Russo-Chinese ancestry for some years before he returned to his homeland. I always enjoyed hearing his sermons with his Southern Cross accent. And speaking of your country, are you familiar with Mark Richardson of Oz Conservative? I find him very insightful. He apparently organizes traditionalist meetings in eastern Australia. So, you might be able to attend one of those gatherings. Vale!

Comment on "Putin's Family Values versus the Emasculation of American Men" by Joseph from Arimathea on Monday, September 24, A.D. 2018

Dear Joseph,
It might be we have much more in common than just interest in obscure sides of history and in Theology. I came across some of your posts/comments in Orthosphere and liked them. You may find more about who ‘m I on my FB page combining my Christian name (vide supra) with my family name Faigl. In the Icon therein, I’m almost invisibly present, but Im confident yo will find me there.
With U tube it is a problem: both videos on your Putins_family_values have disappeared. Perhaps next time (hope there is something like next time) you may chose to download them to your blog (disconnected from the U Tube censors).
Be blessed and under God’s care

Oh wow that is quite a coincidence! And I hear you, that is definitely understandable. Glad you can appreciate Peterson. I have never heard of Adam Bede but will have to check it out.

Comment on "Dolores O'Riordan: Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis" by Tyler on Thursday, March 15, A.D. 2018

Weird synchronism strikes again. Last night, I planned to write the following post, which features a short exchange on video between Tucker Carlson and Dr. Peterson, and then I found your comments. I am familiar with Dr. Peterson and judge any academic man who maintains his dignity among the muck admirable and worthy of praise. I hope that you are doing well, too, and I apologize for my scant offerings over the past years. I no longer have the same motivation to write; even commenting on current events makes me feel so miasmically polluted. That is a poor excuse, as there is a practical infinity of interesting and wondrous topics. So, that leaves me with admitting how lazy and worthless I am. Anyway, good luck in your reading. I just started Adam Bede, and I continually marvel at Evans’ insight into the human condition. Take care.

Also, are you familiar with Jordan Peterson? I’m reading his 12 Rules for Life and his view of what God actually is is kind of interesting. He’s trying to rescue modern people from the kind of nihilism that lead to the Soviet Union.

I still check on this page every now and then! Hope things are going well for you.

I don’t think anybody of sound mind would shed a tear for Lindsey if she was fed to dogs. haha

In any event, my blog has now moved to Wordpress, so feel free to update the link in your Links section whenever you get a moment. I can now be found at:

All the best, brother.

Hmm, sorry to hear you have problems commenting. It may be a browser issue?

I hope you enjoyed your Christmas. I had a post at the Orthosphere you may enjoy.

Comment on "Already Disappointed by Trump" by Mark Citadel on Wednesday, January 18, A.D. 2017

Dear Mark,

Christmas greetings to you! My post was tongue-in-cheek. Of course, we shouldn’t put our trust in princes, and it will take many more far trumpier Trumps to begin to alter our nations’ current trajectory toward ruin. Short of a nationally televised (and celebrated) public execution of Jessica Valenti and 11,000 Brazen Whores on the National Mall by Tradition, Family, and Property counter-revolutionaries in full regalia, no politician could even feign to Make America Great Again. Still and all, I’ve been delighted by the Trump era in so many ways. We must be thankful for small mercies.

By the way, I cannot post comments on your site. I submit them but I get the impression that the site does not register them.

Comment on "Already Disappointed by Trump" by Joseph from Arimathea on Monday, January 16, A.D. 2017

The key was never being invested in him as a ruling figure in the first place. Trump was a means to achieve certain goals, both geopolitical and in terms of acceptable narrative. The latter has already happened, while the former seems still likely. Trump doesn’t seem to be in any rush to start a war in Syria.

Comment on "Already Disappointed by Trump" by Mark Citadel on Monday, November 28, A.D. 2016

Good stuff. This past year has really been spectacular in terms of growth all across the board.

Comment on "Eighth Anniversary" by Mark Citadel on Friday, October 14, A.D. 2016

Glad you caught this. A very interesting piece from Hitchens for sure. I always enjoy his writing, even if I don’t agree with him on everything, and his television appearances often end up hurting his own case due to the blackpill demeanor.

Comment on "Peter Hitchens on Russia" by Mark Citadel on Thursday, September 15, A.D. 2016

You’re welcome Joseph.
I personally swayed at least 2 people toward voting out.
We shall prevail.
God bless.

Comment on "Rule, Britannia!" by Gary on Thursday, July 21, A.D. 2016

Trump operates as a businessman rather than an ideologue. This makes him immediately positive for Russia, because the current Russian president understands business very well.

Comment on "Dugin on the Election" by Mark Citadel on Sunday, July 17, A.D. 2016

I very much enjoy Dugin’s Guideline, and have purchased his book ‘Last War of the World Island’, but have yet to get around to reading it.

Comment on "Dugin on the Election" by Mark Citadel on Saturday, May 28, A.D. 2016

What a harrowing thought that they lost their son. This is true piety, and puts the empty holiness signalling currently going on in some ‘Christian’ circles concerning the ‘rapefugees’ to shame.

Comment on "Seraphim of Vyritsa" by Mark Citadel on Monday, May 9, A.D. 2016

Thanks for linking this!

Comment on "Maria Potapova Remembers Saint John of Shanghai" by Mark Citadel on Monday, April 18, A.D. 2016

Here’s a rather sensible post on the subject from a rather surprising place, the Washington Post.

Comment on "Free‌ Range‌ Kids" by Andrew on Monday, March 30, A.D. 2015


I apologize for the delay; I have not been on my account for many days. I just checked and found your comment. By coincidence, there is a short relevant recent post from the Orthosphere, a site that I read: “Doubly Mendacious Shepherds.”

The American people are complicit in the seemingly endless lies that inform our public discourse. We accept the lies because we are (1) dishonest ourselves, (2) too cowardly to resist the falsehoods, or (3) both. Hence, we are a craven and lying people.

For an example, let us consider the late Lawrence Auster. A healthy, honest people would have honored such a man—universities would have invited him to lecture, press shows would have interviewed him, and the papers would be full of editorials discussing matters that he addressed in the same robust spirit. In our twilight civilization, however, he was cast to the fringes—his person and his ideas having been long banished from “respectable” circles.

In other news, the Grey Lady’s resident sane opinion writer (Douthat) has now begun using the term cisgendered in his essays. And the average NYT reader doesn’t even pause to marvel.

Comment on "Peter Thiel on the Competition Myth" by Joseph from Arimathea on Saturday, February 28, A.D. 2015

In which ways are Americans a “craven and lying people”?
