Ekaterina, it's a shame you feel a group has the right to violate others right under the Russian Constititution and ECHR to peaceable religious worship simply to make a statement against Putin. (See Mercouris for the most likely argument the Russian government will make, that failure to prosecute persecution/'propaganda of deed' actions against church people will violate THEIR rights).

That's what Foust is taking issue with -- these women weren't protesting somewhere else, they were harassing church people and VIOLATING THEIR RIGHTs. Just as Sandra Fluke and her Soros backed compatriots like Valerie Jarrett ARE VIOLATING THE CONSCIENCE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH by forcing Catholic institutions to fund birth control, to the shameful silence of 'liberals' like you and fake libertarians like Craig Pirrong who worship themselves and the Establishment. One might as well insist Jews and Muslims must subsidize county kitchens that serve the indigent ham so long as they don't have to eat it or serve it themselves.

This is exactly the illiberalism in the name of 'liberty' that marks you and your idol Professor Craig Pirrong (he cannot really believe his whopping Goebbels sized lie that Ron Paul supporters, including thousands of veterans, are just like the Khmer Rouge can he? But he repeats it -- and I personally hope the stench of that fanatically pro-Establishment Big Lie follows his blogging forever).

Pirrong is one of those academics so in love with himself and his own ideas and going to the big cheese conferences funded by the TBTFs and CME zombies where he would never want to be rumored to be a 'Ronulan'. He like so many other smug Republicans posing as liberals or libertarians will only wake up when his IRAs and 401ks get MF Global'd and he realizes the U.S. has become the Natural State he claims rules Russia. Only then perhaps will he repent of all the people he libeled and lied about before (aka tin foil hat wearers) were right.

And as for my legacy, I'll leave it offline rather than online. The Eye of Sauron attempts to control the online world -- he's better known as the Prince of this World.

Mr. X

You see Catherine I view things ultimately in spiritual terms:

it is the same Satanic, neo-Bolshevik spirit that portrays those attacking Churches as victims and liberals

that portrays the Roman Catholic Church as a reactionary, woman hating institution for opposing funding birth control that has lasting effects on women's bodies and prevents women from doing what makes them fundamentally different from men

that portrays Planned Parenthood as an organization that liberates minorities and women rather than a group that was originally set up to reduce minority numbers aka what Margaret Sanger called 'human weeds' in the 1920s

that portrays the Syrian FSA as a noble force fighting wicked Russian allies rather than a collection of rabidly jihadist insurgents who only provoked the admittedly blood-stained Assad regime after numerous attacks on civilians, police and military alike funded by the same Saudi princes that underwrote 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers (@ReginaldQuill) and will soon be launching jihad against Israel in tandem with their Muslim Brothers in Egypt the State Department also helped

as for 'conspiracy theories' I'll answer the same way Luke Rudkowski does -- I don't need to prove them because reality will prove them for me, when this country has 30,000 drones by 2017 and 17,000 by 2015 (Congressman Ted Poe) just as the 'tin foil hat wearers' predicted -- they also predicted unlike Pirrong who said 'the wheels of justice turn slowly' that Corzine would walk on the MF Global heist. Look what happened. Now Pirrong won't even blog about that or about foreign policy since Der Spiegel and Foreign Policy have both admitted the FSA are riddled with Al-Qaeda.

Mr. X

EOT for me. I only brought up @ReginaldQuill since he (and to a lesser extent another SWP groupie, @LibertyLynx) have trolled Josh Foust on numerous occasions for the crime of being insufficiently enthusiastic about Obama's foreign policy and/or the anti-Putin 'Demintern'. Of course @ReginaldQuill gets caught trolling Walter Russell Mead with laughable lines like 'don't throw democracy out with the jihadi bathwater' then lies and says he never endorsed Syrian jihadists. Of course. That's how you play the Cass Sunstein word games. Well I'm sick and damn tired of them all. They are not my countrymen and someday if this country continues sliding into authoritarianism creeps like @ReginaldQuill who libel their countrymen as foreign agents while excusing the Saudi takoever of U.S. Syria policy will be remembered like Stasi IMs (inoffiziele mitarbeiters) were after the East German regime collapsed.

Mr. X, you're really obsessed about all these conspiracy theories.

I guess you haven't read my past blogs on Pussy Riot. I urge that they be punished. I don't think they have the right to disrupt church services. Freedom of expression doesn't trump freedom of religion or freedom of association. Rights have to be in balance. The punishment should be community service for 15 days or something, however, not 2 years. I point to similar instances in US history, where demonstrators at least got public censure and criticism, were not treated as heroes, and didn't get even fines or jail, just temporary detentions.

So I don't posit anywhere anything remotely like any claim that a group "has the right to violate the rights of others". They don't. They commtitted civil disobedience that in fact did violate others' rights, although they didn't harm people or property, so it has to be taken into advisement.

Read my past blogs and stop being an ass, for example, this:

http://3dblogger.typepad.com/minding_russia/2012/03/pussy-riot-should-be-punished.html

I don't think Planned Parenthood should get state funding if the Catholic Church can't also get state funding *and not be forced to give health insurance coverage of contraception and birth control*. Planned Parenthood has its right to exist under freedom of association; so do Komen, Chik-Fil-A and the Boy Scouts and everything else the "progressives" don't like. I'm liberal, not "progressive" and I think the progs are reactionary, not liberal.

PP doesn't have a mission to exterminate minorities, it has a mission to liberate women from dependence on nature and men which runs counter to traditional beliefs.

Foust could care less about freedom of religion or church niceties and doesn't protest that at all -- he's merely mad that lots of people he doesn't find cool -- who in fact are very effective -- are criticizing Russia -- which he is loathe to criticize except on his own terms, featuring international affairs management techniques he learned in college.

I'd love to see Pirrong's claim, if it is true, that Ron Paul's followers are like the Khmer Rouge, in context. But he's right that Ron Paul and his followers are a rabid cult and they should come nowhere near power. They have some really terrible reactionary and wild ideals and don't have any notion of the compromises and realities of governance.

I'm not interested in getting into a discussion of Corzine on this blog about Russia. I don't understand the context or backups for the claim "The FSA are riddle with Al-Qaeda".

I'm not sure how much Al Qaeda is in Syria, given that it's your pal Russia telling us this. I don't have any illusions about Arab rebels in Arab Spring or Arab Winter countries, truly. Look at how bad Tunisia is turning out. That doesn't justify mass murder in Syria.

I have no use for Cass Sunstein. I haven't seen anything "incorrect" from Reginald Quill but Twitter is not a place to see full-fledged ideologies. You seem to be distracting here from the Kremlin's maintenance of the GULAG and its mass murder collusion in Syria.

Mr. X

"Mr. X, you're really obsessed about all these conspiracy theories."

Just like the 'conspiracy theory' that NSA can listen to everyone's phone calls and play them back for future use at any time? That conspiracy theory Catherine?

I sent the McClatchy story where they interviewed many East German victims of Stasi spying as well as the Stasi men themselves about the NSA spying to your tweep the fascist apologist Craig Pirrong.

In the story the Stasi man smiled at the irony that his colleagues could never have imagined such a capability and laughs at the naivete of you, Pirrong and every other useful idiot for totalitarianism in America that the data will never be used. By all accounts according to Russ Tice, whom Professor Ron Pol Pot won't even discuss, the NSA 'metadata' blackmail connecting pols to gay/underage hookers and drug dealers is already well underway. Look at Lindsey light in the loafers Graham or the zombified deer in the headlights look that Justice Roberts had after pulling two all nighters to rewrite his Obamacare ruling. Or hell, look at the murder of Hastings with a car bomb in LA -- unless you think Mercedes gas tanks blow up upon impact with trees while Humvees that get IED'd don't have their tanks explode (hint: the safety features for civilian and military vehicles to stop fires aren't too different, plus there's the pesky matter of the engine block flying 100 feet and the LAPD not letting independent experts check for C4 residue).

But deep down, I know why Pirrong hates the 'Paulbots' even more then he hates Occupy, Assange, Snowden or the Russians. Because the Three Percenters are the people that, should the regime that Pirrong keeps apologizing for decide to start waging war against Texas, will send him packing to Canada just like any Tory/turncoat Royalist in 1781 America. Real constitutionalists getting in and shutting down the federal reserve and signalling game over for Pirrong's derivative-garbage laden industries and bloated academist credentialism would make him a pauper.

PS Not only do you and your ilk side with the D.C. fascists out of professional cravenness and sheer flag waving stupidity, you double down on the hypocrisy by backing REAL AL-QAEDA jihadists in Syria simply because Russia is on the other side, even after they get caught on tape eating the heart and lungs of their enemies. Yep, when Pirrong drops a subject or refuses to debate it it's because he knows he's defending a loser position. No wonder he wants to discuss Snowden and Assange to kingdom come, like his neighbors in Houston are stockpiling ammo and guns to fight off Assange or Russians!
