Each day at just after midnight Eastern, a post like this one is created for contributors and readers of this site to upload news links and video links on the issues that concern this site. Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

So please post all links, thoughts and ideas that you feel will benefit the readers of this site to the comments under this post each day. And thank you all for your contributions.

This is the new Samizdat. We must use it while we can.

  1. Breaking: Evidence Shows Obama’s Top “FBI Executives” Knew Steele Dossier Was a Fraud Before They Signed Multiple FISA Apps to Spy on President Trump

    Per a review of information related to the fake Trump – Russia sham, it is now clear that the top Executives in Obama’s FBI all knew that there were multiple copies of the Steele dossier and yet they signed multiple FISA warrant applications to spy on President Trump anyways.

    Per a review of prior posts and information released to the “Spygate” scandal, it is now clear that the FBI knew the Steele dossier was a fraud and yet they used it to not only obtain a FISA warrant to spy on President Trump, they also used this dirty information multiple times to obtain additional warrants. It’s highly probable that this information was never shared with the FISA Court of course. According to a report from the Hill released in July 2018 –

    Now, memos the FBI is turning over to Congress show the bureau possessed at least three versions of the dossier and its mostly unverified allegations of collusion.

    Each arrived from a different messenger: McCain, Mother Jones reporter David Corn, Fusion GPS founder (and Steele boss) Glenn Simpson.

    That revelation is in an email that disgraced FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok wrote to FBI executives around the time BuzzFeed published a version of the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017.

    “Our internal system is blocking the site,” Strzok wrote of the document posted on BuzzFeed. “I have the PDF via iPhone but it’s 25.6MB. Comparing now. The set is only identical to what McCain had. (it has differences from what was given to us by Corn and Simpson.)”,%202019%20at%2011:06:06%20AM

  2. ‘IS members kill dozens’ in Tajikistan prison riot (BBC, May 20, 2019)

    “At least 29 inmates and three guards have been killed during a riot at a high-security prison in Tajikistan, the country’s justice ministry said.

    A group of Islamic State (IS) members killed the guards before releasing fellow IS convicts and turning on other prisoners, their statement read.

    Guards then opened fire, leaving 24 more prisoners dead.

    The facility is home to 1,500 prisoners and lies in the city of Vakhdat east of the capital Dushanbe.

    It is the second deadly prison riot to hit Tajikistan in the last six months.

    The justice ministry statement said rioting started on Sunday. IS inmates killed five fellow prisoners before taking others hostage and starting a fire.

    Some of the inmates are political prisoners, and the ministry said two of those killed by the convicts were members of the banned opposition Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan (IRPT), including the senior member Sattor Karimov. The party’s leaders are all in exile or in prison.

    It is unclear who else is among the dead.

    One of the instigators was Bekhruz Gulmurod, a son of Gulmurod Khalimov. Mr Khalimov was a Tajik special forces soldier who defected to IS and was killed fighting in Syria.

    Last November, 21 prisoners and two guards were killed during a riot at a maximum-security prison in Khujand, in northern Tajikistan. IS has claimed responsibility for the incident.”

    This is an extended campaign film of Sargon with Milo!
    Why Milo showed up for this I don’t know but it was good to see him again.
    Getting past the “I wouldn’t rape you” thing took a bit of time. And really illustrates the left’s hysteria. None the less it is still an issue.
    Some here may not like Milo. I happen to think him right on when you peel back the hyperbole and showmanship. So, it was great to see him again.

  5. Justin Amash’s Business Interests in China Underscore His Push to Impeach Trump

    It may be more than constitutionalism driving Amash’s dogged opposition to President Trump.
    Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has become the darling of anti-Trump liberals following his declaration in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump yesterday.

    While Amash acts like his support of impeachment is rooted in constitutional grounds, there may be a financial motive to his opposition to Trump. It has been revealed that Amash has significant business interests in China that may be harmed by Trump’s ‘America First’ trade policies.

    In Amash’s financial disclosure forms for the year of 2015, he was shown as receiving up to $1 million in annual income due to his ownership stake in Michigan Industrial Tools (MIT). MIT is the parent company of Tekton Tools, Amash’s family business, that benefits directly from Chinese manufacturing.

    An article from MLive in 2010 exposed Amash as being the co-owner of Dynamic Source International (DSI), a Chinese company that was once an MIT supplier. Amash’s family have been outspoken advocates of the globalist trade status quo for many years.

  6. BREAKING: White House Instructs Former WH Counsel Don McGahn to Defy House Judiciary Subpoena to Testify

    The White House is expected to block former White House counsel Don McGahn from testifying about obstruction of justice events related to the Mueller investigation.

    The White House may claim McGahn is immune from testifying because he is a former advisor to the President — The Justice Department will later release a legal opinion on McGahn’s subpoena and immunity, according to Reuters.

    Mr. McGahn was requested to appear before the House Judiciary Committee on May 21st and previously defied a House Judiciary subpoena that requested a trove of documents.

    Last month House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to publicly testify May 21.

    Nadler said that Don McGahn is a “critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Special Counsel’s report.”

    According to Mueller’s report, President Trump asked Don McGahn to supposedly lie about reports that he ordered him to fire Mueller. Mueller was never even fired and Trump insists he never said anything like that to McGahn, but Nadler and the Dems are pursuing him anyway.

  7. Stalin Would be Proud: Feds in SDNY Examining Tens of Thousands of Trump Inauguration Documents Hoping to Find a Crime

    Federal prosecutors have found their man (Trump) – and now they’re searching for a crime.

    Stalin would be proud.

    Federal prosecutors in New York are examining tens of thousands of Trump inauguration documents in search of a crime to pin on the President.

    President Trump’s inaugural committee handed over a trove of documents in response to a February subpoena seeking records and communications related to Trump’s inaugural donors and activities — in other words, more opposition research.

    According to a new report by CNN, the last tranche of documents was produced within the last month and feds in the SDNY are now combing through tens of thousands of documents.

    CNN also (reluctantly) reported that the feds have found no damaging information in the documents.

    Here’s the backstory:,%202019%20at%2003:06:06%20PM

    • Federal prosecutors have found their man (Trump) – and now they’re searching for a crime.

      If this is your average fishing expedition, then Ahab was gigging frogs.

      In the actinic glare of peer reviewed science these sort of methodological monkeyshines more often were known as one of two things:

      1.) Altering the data to fit the equations

      … or, far worse:

      2.) Altering the equations to fit the data

      At present, Trump’s harriers have blended this binary Knowledge Nerve Gas into their usual Unconstitutional smoothie. Nothing seems to vary except that day’s bilious shade of brown, butt assuredly not its odor or putrescence.

      Perhaps most enraging of all is how Leftists commit both of these high crimes against human knowledge and then demand that the victims of this criminal fraud remain shtum under penalty of laws jumped up by their kangaroo courts.

  8. ‘France Does Not Belong to the French!’: Hundreds Of Illegal Migrants Storm Paris Airport

    Hundreds of illegal migrants on Monday stormed into the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, demanding to granted permanent residency.

    The group calls itself the “Black Vests,” similar to the “Yellow Vests” who have been protesting Emmanuel Macron for months. The Black Vests demanded to speak to Macron’s prime minister, Edouard Philippe.,%202019%20at%2003:06:06%20PM

  9. Mali police killed in attack in Koury near Burkina Faso border (thedefensepost, May 20, 2019)

    “Four civilians, two Malian police officers and a customs officer were killed in an attack on a border post on Mali’s frontier with Burkina Faso, security sources and government officials said Monday, May 20.

    Koury, in Mali’s southern Sikasso region, lies about 480 km (300 miles) east of the capital Bamako near the border with Burkina Faso and is a major crossing point for goods entering or leaving Mali.

    Another security source confirmed the toll and said the two Ghanaians were lorry drivers.

    “The assailants arrived on three motorbikes and in a car,” the source said. “They fired at the gendarmes, the customs officers and the civilian truck drivers.”

    “Right now, we can’t confirm who the attackers were. They arrived in Koury from two directions,” a government official said. “We were told that they took the soldiers’ boots as they left.”

    The attack comes a day after a United Nations peacekeeper was killed and another injured in Timbuktu in central Mali…”

  14. Turkey: communication methods of FETO revealed (aa, May 20, 2019)

    “Turkish security forces have published a report on the communication methods of the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 defeated coup in Turkey, security sources said Monday.

    The terrorist organization uses encrypted phone lines, couriers, notes, social media, payphones, media organs and computer programs for communicating as well as direct communication, according to the report by the General Directorate of Security’s counter-terrorism department.

    FETO has also acted confidentially in communication as in other fields of activity, the report said, adding couriers were considered one of the most secure communication methods.

    FETO members discussed “very important issues” when directly communicating with their leader, Fetullah Gulen, the report said. Senior members of the organization in this context met with Gulen, who lives in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, to obtain instructions and inform him of their activities.

    Encrypted phones were especially used in contact with its affiliated schools abroad, the report said, adding the ByLock, Eagle, Shu and Falcon apps were used for communication using the icons of apps such as Facebook, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Twitter.

    Turkish security forces carried out their first operation on March 31, 2017 in northwestern Tekirdag province to arrest suspects who had communicated with covert imams of FETO using a payphone, according to the report.

    Security forces have carried out 677 operations in 76 provinces since Dec. 5, 2018, arresting 3,631 suspects out of 9,352 people who were issued arrest warrants. The report also said 553 were released.

    “It is vitally important for our national security to decipher this organization completely considering the fact that the militants in the form of civil servants are trying to mask themselves as if they have different lifestyles and political views out of ‘precaution’ and that the organization and its members haven’t been completely deciphered even today,” the report said.

    It also said it is highly difficult to identify covert members in the Turkish Armed Forces through administrative investigations as they attach great importance to confidentiality.

    The report noted that the determination of these suspects can only be revealed through judicial investigations and intelligence techniques.

    FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

    Ankara also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.”

  15. Spain: Surge in Migrant Crime

    by Soeren Kern

    Six African migrants gang-raped a 12-year-old girl in a small town near Madrid, but Spanish authorities kept information about the crime hidden from the public for more than a year, apparently to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.

    On March 15, 2018, the 12-year-old girl was playing in a park in Azuqueca de Henares with several other girls when, at around one o’clock in the afternoon, six migrants — five Moroccans and one Nigerian — approached the playground. They carried two of the girls off to a nearby abandoned building, but then let one of them go after discovering that she was a Muslim. The migrants, aged between 15 and 20, grabbed the 12-year-old by her arms and legs and took turns raping her, first anally and then vaginally, for nearly an hour.

    The public was not informed about the crime until March 20, 2019, when the newspaper El Mundo published the results of an investigation. According to the report, Spanish prosecutors and judges secretly decided that three of the minors will be held in a young offender institution for three years and then be “reinserted” into Spanish society rather than be deported. One of the adults is being held in preventive detention; the other adults were released.

  16. Italy: Tensions flare between police and Bologna antifa

  17. Adam Schiff has been lying for the past two years: Chaffetz

    Former Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz discusses how Rep. Adam Schiff claimed that impeachment proceedings against President Trump could be used as a tool to gain information that the House of Representatives has been asking for.

  18. the gateway pundit Former AG Lynch Denied Under Oath Telling Comey to Refer to Clinton Email Probe as a “Matter” — Somebody’s Lying!

    On Monday Rep. Doug Collins released the remaining transcripts from the House Judiciary Committee’s investigation into decisions made at the DOJ and FBI to exonerate Hillary Clinton and spy on candidate Donald Trump.

    The transcripts included testimony from Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe and James Rybicki

    According to the transcripts Loretta Lynch denied telling FBI Director James Comey to refer to the Clinton email case as a “matter,” rather than an investigation. This directly contradicts statements made by James Comey under oath.

    Someone is lying!

    this is TR’s account of what took place on Saturday. the fact that the TR rally thought to evacuate women and children is really alarming. The Manchester police actually marched violent yobs to the rally armed with eggs, water bottles of urine and stones. And then a “police liaison” claimed that they, the yobs, were allowed to counter protest! I guess “counter protest” includes lobbing projectiles into women and children?
    How much longer this will go on is anyone’s guess. The Manchester police should be SUED for their dereliction of duty. Will any of the parents of the screaming children stand up and sue their police force?
