Bwoglines: Russia And The Grammy’s Edition

Written by

The Grammy’s are back in NYC!

Happening in the World: Protests have been occurring across Russia after opposition candidate Alexei Navalny was arrested for protesting the results of an election that occurred on March 18th of last year. This was a result of Putin’s attempt to reclaim his title during a fourth six-year election term. Over 100 cities in Russia protested against the action of removing Navalny from being a candidate for the next election cycle. (NPR)

Happening in the US: Former US Representative Corrine Brown is reporting to prison today to complete a 5-year federal prison sentence after being convicted of fraud while serving as a Congresswoman. She will be serving her time at a minimum-level prison in Central Florida, and her arrival is expected to receive massive media attention. Brown served in the House of Representatives from 1993 to 2017. (Orlando Sentinel)

Happening in NYC: The Grammy’s were held last night at Madison Square Garden, the first time in many years since the awards show moved to Los Angeles. The big winner of the night was Bruno Mars, who won Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year for “24K Magic” and “That’s What I Like” off of 24K Magic. Performances included Kesha, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, and SZA.

Happening on Campus: Cardinal Péter Erdö of Esztergom-Budapest, Primate of Hungary will be delivering a speech for the 40th Annual Bampton Lectures, a series of speeches from individuals prominent in the fields of technology, medicine, art, and the sciences. Erdö will be giving a speech entitled “The Role of Religion and the Churches in a Secular State.” This event will occur from 5:30-6:30 PM in Low Memorial Library. More information regarding the event can be found here.

Overheard on Campus: “I found a girl that’s my type. Well, not my type but the type that’s into me

Random Fact: Did you know that over 18,000 Amish people live in the state of New York? Why do so many of them live here?

Song of the Week: I will be bumping SZA’s album all week after it was snubbed from all Grammy nominations last night (RIP).

    Stop the WTC Greek Soviet Trojan! The original Greek WTC church was built by the Czars, as can be documented by all the trinkets they donated, but they trojaned the date. BBC Monitoring January 15, 2018 said Russian state TV channel Rossiya 1 has broadcast a film about the Valaam Monastery in Russia's north that focused heavily on lengthy excerpts from interviews with Russian President Vladimir Putin [who said] . . . “In fact, the Communist ideology is actually akin to Christianity.” Alexander Litvinenko accused Vladimir Putin of being a paedophile four months before he was poisoned (Independent UK 21 January 2016). On 9/11/01 the Archbishop of Athens Gristledule said we deserved it as retribution for our bombing the Serbs (Vaslaces, ISBN 978-960-252-007-9). How else did the Greek government know to move Atlantic Bank from the WTC the prior June? The Czars were always communist, forbidding land ownership because the Obsina mir belonged to Mokosh, and had free education and health care. Aristides Papadakis tries to make the early Christians into communist (David Bentley Hart NOV 4 2017 NY Times). Kim Philby spawned the Oxbridge Orthodox under Tim Ware and Steve Khanya Hayes who taught Savas Zombilas, George Stifanopolis, George Demcopolis and John McGughen. The Srebrenica genocide was directed by Greek KYP agents Spyrus Djanopoulos, Dimitrus Zavitsanos, and Haralabus Dimulas. In 1182 Greeks massacred sixty thousand Istanbul Catholics, selling the remainder to their Turkish sultan. On Jan 1 1920 US Adm Mark Bristol judged the Greeks with the initial provocative August 18 1919 genocide of Smyrna cabled to the NY Times on Nov 26 (NYT Jan 3 1920 pg 10, Aug 19, 1919 pg 18). That is why the Greeks made Cosmus Aitrellus their patron of genocide. Soviet Seleucid Jean Bouchedior wrote "The rich are in possession of the goods of the poor, even if they have acquired them honestly" (Lazarus 11). The Theodosian Code promoted confiscatory taxation and promoted Diocletian socialist feudalism (Rostovtzeff 1926, Gibbon ch. 13) that Toynbee (1939, IV p. 399) said caused Anatolia to apostase into Turkishness. Gun control hails back to Justinian's Novella 85. See “Is Orthodox Christianity progressive?” By Michelle Boorstein Washington Post November 4, 2009. If Greeks trojaned their eurobudgets, do you trust their food hygiene, caique shipping, quisling lawyers or olive witch doctors?
