Curt Weldon Boosts Ukraine Conference
Ukrainian Catholic Priest Father Ighor Fedoryshyn, who is pictured at a camp near the front lines in his embattled homeland, has sent the following message (translated using Google) via John Jushchyshyn of Upper Darby, Pa.

Father Ighor Message From Ukraine
With all the stories regarding celebrity deaths and such, it sure is easy to see why its hard for the old media to find some room concerning the West African Ebola epidemic.
Today’s Philadelphia Inquirer did manage to sneak in a few paragraphs on page 4 about how its going to last six more months.
As of yesterday, Aug. 15, the reported toll was 1,145 deaths and 2,127 cases of the disease.
The World Health Organization (WHO) claims the reported toll “vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak.”
Other stories of interest not getting much mention is a report that Ukraine has attacked Russian troops — something denied by Russia — and leaves changing color in Pittsburgh due to record cold temperatures pretty much putting paid to all claims of global warming.
Ebola Coverage Stays Quiet
Michael Ledeen — a former consultant to the United States National Security Council, the United States Department of State, and the United States Department of Defense — has written at PJMedia.com that a theory has been seriously broached that the real target of the pro-Russian Ukrainian rebels who shot down Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 was Aeroflot airline AFL2074 that was filled with Russian passengers.
He said the idea was cooked up by Vladimir Putin for use as a pretext for the invasion of the Ukraine.
You can read Ledeen’s column here.
Aeroflot AFL2074 Target Not MH17?
A Malaysian passenger jet crashed about 7 this morning, July 17, in a section of the Ukraine embroiled in conflict.
It was an American-made Boeing 777 and all 295 on board are dead. There is a very good chance it was shot down and maybe by the Russians.
So where is President Obama?
We’ve eaten at the Charcoal Pit. It wasn’t anything special.
Impeach Obama now.
Feckless Obama Lunches During Crisis
On this barricade in the Ukraine last January is Father Ighor Fedoryshyn.
The Independence Hall Foundation (IHF) will present its 2014 Defender of Liberty Award to the Ukrainian people–citing their determination to fight for Independence and freedom as their nation comes under siege from an increasingly hostile Russian government led by Vladimir Putin.
The award will be formally presented to Natalie Shyrba, a
representative of Razom for Ukraine, tomorrow, July 4, at the Independence Visitors Center on Independence Mall in Philadelphia.
“We stand shoulder to shoulder with the Ukrainian people as they struggle against all odds to maintain their independence, just as our founding fathers and mothers did in 1776,” said Foundation organizer, Teri Adams.
“We support the efforts of the Ukrainian people to defend their national integrity and we encourage the United States government and NATO to supply Ukrainian Freedom Fighters with the weapons and other critical supplies they need to defend their nation’s independence.”
Last September, the Foundation named the four victims of the 2012 Benghazi Embassy attack–US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods–as recipients of its 2013 Defender of Liberty Award.
Ukrainian Freedom Fight Honored By IHF
The Ukrainian Greek Catholic parishes of Holy Ghost in Chester and Saints Peter and Paul in Clifton Heights will be merging to Holy Myrrh Bearers with its home at the historic former Leiper Presbyterian Church, 900 Fairview Ave., Ridley Township albeit with a Swarthmore address.
Leiber, which opened in 1819, closed Jan. 8, 2012. Among those who worshiped there were presidents Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison and James Buchanan.
It was purchased by the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia in March.
Holy Ghost at 3015 W. 3rd St., and Saints Peter and Paul at 100 S. Penn St., will be closed and sold.
The first service at the new church is scheduled for Sept. 28 with a blessing ceremony the day before.
The Holy Myrrh Bearers, were those involved with the burial of the Lord Jesus and the discovery of the empty tomb on Easter.
UPDATE: the first service is now scheduled for Nov. 2 with the blessing ceremony the preceding day.
Biden Boy Corrupt Ukraine Connection
Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, is a board member of Burisma Holdings as is Devon Archer, who is a close pal of Secretary of State John Kerry.
Burisma Holdings is Ukraine’s largest private gas producer and is owned by Nikolai Zlochevsky, who was allied the Ukraine’s with Russian-puppet Viktor Yanukovych before the people threw him out in February.
Bet you haven’t seen this in the Inquirer or on the network news. Wonder how Little Biden feels about fracking in the Ukraine.
The corrupt of the world are uniting. The rest of us better start doing the same.
Biden Boy Corrupt Ukraine Connection
This is a letter passed on to us today, Jan. 23, giving a first-hand report of events occurring in the Ukraine as the people of that nation fight for democracy and freedom. The man on the barricade is Father Ighor Fedoryshyn, an activist priest and former military chaplain with wounds from Chechnya.
He’s the perfect illustration it seems of “a people who will not be slaves again.”
The letter is a version that one might not get from the establishment media.
We are leaving it unedited.
today 6 Ukrainians has been killed. hundreds got injures and hundreds are arested.
4 of them killed by grapeshot cartridges. police said – we do not use guns. Police really do not use rifled barrel guns now. but they use shot-guns 12 caliber, and shot by plastic bullets. probably somebody of them loaded grapeshot cartridges in to shot-gun and killed people. it is impossible to investigate by ballistics(not rifled barrel).
one was killed probably by police sticks(but police version – he fall down from building when he threw stones in policemens from that building).
two Ukrainians were stolen from hospital. doctors saw that. kidnappers bringed them to some garage, beat them and asked who gave money for demonstration (they really think that USA and EU governments pay money to ukrainians for participation in demonstrations). yesterday one of hostages got free. today dead body of another was found near Kiev. I think it was Russian KGB. I am sure police will never find his killers.
Unfortunnately tonight will be more victims.
I want you to know and understant. that what you see on tv and internet is not civil war yet. that is fights between right and false, between people and criminals. Unfortunatelly police protect criminals. Our criminal government could avoid violence, but it did not because government do not realise real situation in country, and have very stupid rule – NO STEP BACK, JUST FORWARD. we all know what can happed if somebody push the spring to much – spring will hit him.
It looks like angry criminals beat defenceless, poor policements by rocks and bottle with gas, when americans see tv or internet reports from Ukraine. but USA police and Ukrainian police is opposite things. 85% of such people who work in ukrainian police, stay in jail in USA or EU. police do crimes to protect president, and government do everything to help avoid response for police
I appreciate your prays for us.
