Reader’s Links for October 10, 2020

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. Olbermann’s Latest Rant Against Trump Uses Language We Haven’t Heard Since Germany in the 1930s

    Note: this is seriously pre-genocidal language. Perhaps genocide is the wrong term: dehumanization of one’s political opponents so as to justify their extermination. Yes, extermination.

    • This call to arms for the left is a warning that my predictions of a major civil war is correct. Note the way he called out the opinion makers on the right, he has just given antifa a hit list of people on the right. The big question is will the attacks and murders start before or after the election.

  2. EURASIA CONFIDENTIAL ??????? ????????????

    Note: OK, this one is a bit long, but well worth listening to because it demonstrates a range of perspectives focusing on the Eastern Mediterranean and the global geopolitical effects of what is happening there. (Turkey, China etc.)

    • The people on the panel all think that a region wide war is coming to the Middle East. I agree with them on that but think that given the number of people from the Middle East living in Europe it will spill over into Europe.

  3. German Musician Gets Canceled Over Anti-Establishment Statements

    Hey guys, more and more people in Germany become uncomfortable with the way our government is restricting civil rights and individual rights of citizens. Many also begin to openly challenge the established media and the narrow corridor of publicly acceptable opinions. The response of the establishment is of course to silence them or to declare them to be mentally unwell, as we see again in this very recent example.

  4. Commentary on the turncoat cowardess of Ontario’s Premier Ford as he brutally guillotines and bludgeons Ontario small business, all because he doesn’t have to worry about his own financial well-being. Seems obvious now that once enemy to Dear Leader, Ford, has made a deal with Dystopia’s Dear, Dear Leader (and Chief Globalist pussy dog). What’s next, concentration camp for vaccine deniers? (Conspiracy theorizing CANNOT be justifiably condemned by authorities who refuse to be transparant):

    • Colorado – Residents in a home in Colorado are protesting the lockdown. They have said “We would rather die of COVID than loneliness”.

      Freedom allows people to make their own decisions.

  5. So, a policy of “live and let live” is followed by the government. Then, those to whom this policy is directed decide it is not enough for them, that they want to spread their philosophy and lifestyle, specifically targeting children, resulting in the protectors of these children being branded in typical leftist western propagandistic fashion.

  6. Saudi-Led Coalition Destroys Drone Launched by Houthi Rebels, Reports Say (sputniknews, Oct 10, 2020)

    “The development comes following last week’s escalation in the long-standing Yemen conflict between forces loyal to the government and Houthi rebels. The confrontation has been ongoing for over five years, despite a peace accord signed in 2018.

    Saudi-led coalition forces have destroyed a drone launched at Saudi Arabia by the Houthi rebel movement, the Saudi Press Agency reported Saturday.

    “Joint Coalition Forces have intercepted and destroyed this morning (Saturday) a bomb-laden UAV launched systematically and deliberately by the terrorist Houthi militia to target civilians and civilian objects in the Southern Region,” the agency cited the official spokesman of the coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen, Colonel Turki Al-Malki, as saying.

    Earlier in the day, the agency reported a similar drone attack that had also been repelled by the coalition…”

  7. Anyone that reads this site is aware of the “Golden Age of Islam” nonsense in Spain

    The Greatest Example of Muslim Deceit in Western History

    Recently we learned that Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad al-Qasimi, member of the Supreme Council of the UAE and ruler of Sharjah, called for the transformation of the Cathedral of Cordoba back to the Mosque of Cordoba, since Spain’s Christians “don’t deserve it.”

    What we weren’t told is what occasioned him to say this—the all-important context of his demand—namely, his new book, The Inquisition (original Arabic here). The book, devoted to showing how the Spanish Inquisition abused Muslims, apparently makes the case for Spain to turn the cathedral into a mosque, as a form of “reparation.”

    During an Arabic language satellite program discussing his new book, al-Qasimi said (in translation):

    Allah willing, this book will have an impact; and here we demand at least the return of the mosque of Cordoba to us. I’ve demanded this before, and they informed me that the municipality had given it to the church. So I said to them, “The one who doesn’t own gave to the one who doesn’t deserve.” For this is our possession as Muslims; moreover, its return is easy and near, Allah willing.

    In other words, and because his book makes the argument that Spain abused its Muslims in extreme ways—including by forcing them to convert to Christianity against their will—the least it can do now is forfeit the cathedral to Islam.

    However, just as the sheikh ignores the fact that “not only was the mosque [of Cordoba] built on a Christian site, but it was also built using materials from the sixth century Christian building destroyed by Muslims in the ninth century,” so too does he ignore why Spain subjected the Muslims to an inquisition in the first place.

    What My Trip to Turkey Taught Me About Erdogan’s Move to Turn the Hagia Sophia Into a Mosque
    In 1492, the Reconquista came to a close with Granada’s surrender. Instead of migrating to North Africa—whence most of its jihadi allies, namely the Almoravids and Almohads, had hailed—its nearly half-million Muslim population chose to remain. They were initially granted lenient terms, including the right to travel abroad and practice Islam freely. However, whenever the opportunity arose, they launched many hard-to-quell uprisings—several “involving the stoning, dismembering, beheading, impaling, and burning alive of Christians”—and regularly colluded with foreign Muslim powers (e.g., Ottoman Turks) in an effort to subvert Spain back to Islam.

    A final “Muslim uprising in 1499, and the crushing of this revolt in 1501, led to an edict that Muslims had to convert to Christianity or leave the peninsula.” Contrary to popular belief, the motivation was less religious and more political; it was less about making Muslims “good Christians” and more about making them “good citizens.” So long as they remained Muslim, thereby operating under the highly divisive doctrine of “loyalty and enmity,” they would remain hostile and disloyal to Christian Spain; and because secularism, atheism, multiculturalism, or just general “wokeness” were not options then, the only practical way Muslims could slough off their tribalism and fully participate in a Christian kingdom was by embracing its faith.

    Under such circumstances, sharia is clear: Muslims should try to emigrate. But there has always been one important caveat: whenever Muslims find themselves under infidel authority, they may say and do almost anything—denounce Muhammad, receive baptism and communion, venerate the cross, all anathema to Islam—so long as their hearts remain true to Islam.

    Such is the doctrine of taqiyya, which has traditionally defined Islam’s modus operandi under non-Muslim authority. Even before the Reconquista in Spain, “Sunni Muslims had invoked taqiyya to justify dissimulation under Christian domination in other periods and regions, including Sicily after the Norman conquest in 1061–91 and the Byzantine Marches.” Unsurprisingly, then, taqiyya defined Islam in post-Reconquista Spain; one authority refers to a 1504 fatwa urging Spain’s subject Muslims to employ taqiyya as “the key theological document for the study of Spanish Islam.”

    Once the edict to convert or emigrate appeared, virtually the entire Granadan population—hundreds of thousands of Muslims—openly embraced Christianity but remained crypto-Muslims. Publicly they went to church and baptized their children; at home, they recited the Koran, preached undying hate for the infidel and their obligation to liberate al-Andalus.

    Yes, Muslims Are Unequivocally Commanded to Hate Non-Muslims
    That these “Moriscos”—that is, self-professed Muslim converts to Christianity who were still “Moorish,” or Islamic—went to great lengths to foist their deception cannot be doubted, as explained by one historian:

    For a Morisco to pass as a good Christian took more than a simple statement to that effect. It required a sustained performance involving hundreds of individual statements and actions of different types, many of which might have little to do with expressions of belief or ritual per se. Dissimulation [taqiyya] was an institutionalized practice in Morisco communities that involved regular patterns of behaviour passed on from one generation to the next.

    Despite this elaborate masquerade, Christians increasingly caught on: “With the permission and license that their accursed sect accorded them,” a frustrated Spaniard remarked, “they could feign any religion outwardly and without sinning, as long as they kept their hearts nevertheless devoted to their false impostor of a prophet. We saw so many of them who died while worshipping the Cross and speaking well of our Catholic Religion yet who were inwardly excellent Muslims.”

    Christians initially tried to reason with the Moriscos; they reminded them how they became Muslim in the first place: “Your ancestor was a Christian, although he made himself a Muslim” to avoid persecution or elevate his social status; so now “you also must become a Christian.” When that failed, Korans were confiscated and burned; then Arabic, the language of Islam, was banned. When that too failed, more extreme measures were taken; it reached the point that a Morisco could “not even possess a pocketknife for eating with that did not have a rounded point, lest he savage a Christian with it.”

    A Muslim chronicler summarizes these times: “Such of the Muslims as still remained in Andalus, although Christians in appearance, were not so in their hearts; for they worshipped Allah in secret. … The Christians watched over them with the greatest vigilance, and many were discovered and burnt.”

    Proof That Muslims and Christians Don’t Worship the Same God
    Such are the origins of the Spanish Inquisition (which, contrary to popular belief, targeted many more Muslims than Jews). For no matter how much the Moriscos “might present the appearance of a most peaceful submission,” a nineteenth-century historian wrote, “they remained nevertheless fundamental Musulmans, watching for a favourable opportunity and patiently awaiting the hour of revenge, promised by their prophecies.”

    Thus, when a rumor arose in 1568 that the Ottoman Turks had finally come to liberate them, formerly “moderate” Muslims near Granada, “believing that the days under Christian rule were over, went berserk. Priests all over the countryside were attacked, mutilated, or murdered; some were burned alive; one was sewed inside a pig and barbequed; the pretty Christian girls were assiduously raped, some sent off to join the harems of Moroccan and Algerian potentates.”

    In the end, if Muslims could never be loyal to infidel authority—constantly colluding and subverting, including with foreign Muslims—and if conversion to Christianity was no solution due to the dispensation of taqiyya, then only one solution remained: between 1609 and 1614, all Moriscos were expelled from the peninsula to Africa, whence Islam had first invaded Spain nearly a millennium earlier.

    This, of course, is a fuller explanation as to why Spain’s Muslims were subjected to the inquisition than al-Qasimi is willing to give, for obvious reasons: dissembling and ever subversive Muslims (past or present) do not garner much sympathy—certainly not for Spain to start making concessions.

    He also seems to miss the great irony: at least the Spaniards were liberating their own country and giving those whose ancestors had invaded the opportunity to leave unmolested. This is far more lenient than how Islam has always behaved—invading non-Muslim nations and giving infidels three choices: convert, live as subjugated dhimmis, or die—as the learned sheikh knows full well.

  8. Police arrest six people after murder of man, 20, who was brutally stabbed to death just yards from a Hull children’s playground (dailymail, Oct 10, 2020)

    “Six people have been arrested in connection with a fatal stabbing just yards away from a Hull children’s play park.

    Abdullah Balouchi was found collapsed in Peel Street, Hull, beside a local park on Wednesday evening.

    The 20-year-old suffered multiple stab wounds and was taken to hospital where he sadly died.

    Arrests were made shortly after emergency services arrived at the scene at around 8pm on October 7 and a murder investigation was launched the following afternoon.

    Detective Chief Inspector Bob Clark has confirmed further arrests have been made with six people now currently in police custody.

    He said: ‘A number of enquiries are underway and ongoing, with leads being followed up and continuous action taking place to fully establish the circumstances of the incident that night…”

  9. Iraqi Convicted of Beheading Swedish Teen Pleads Innocence at Appeal (breitbart, Oct 10, 2020)

    “Iraqi migrant Tishko S. has maintained his innocence during an appeal after he was convicted in July of murdering Swedish teen Wilma Andersson and dismembering her body.

    The appeal against the conviction and sentencing for the 23-year-old ended Thursday and saw the Iraqi migrant give a speech to the court in which he professed his innocence, stating: “There is not a drop of blood on my hands, I loved Wilma more than life.”

    The claim runs contrary to the fact the teen’s severed head was found in the Iraqi’s apartment following the murder, which took place in November of last year.

    According to a report from broadcaster SVT, the 23-year-old added, “I’m not a murderer, I’m not a woman abuser, Not an oppressor,” and claimed that the Swedish police investigation had simply consisted of guesswork.

    The lawyer for Tishko S. attempted to point to an alleged weakness in the case, i.e. the fact that the rest of the body of the teen had not been recovered, asking whether police had done enough to investigate the possibility of another suspected in the case.

    In July, the 23-year-old was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the murder of the 17-year-old and told to pay 227,664 Swedish kronor (£20,000/$26,000) to the parents of the victim.

    Swedish media outlets had refused to publish the background of Tishko S., claiming that it was not in the public interest, however, in recent months the connection between immigration and crime has become a major issue in Swedish politics following statements by senior police officer Mats Löfving last month.

    Speaking specifically on gang crime, Löfving said, “These clans come to Sweden solely with the purpose of organising and systematising crime. They work to create power, they have a great capacity for violence, and they want to make money. And they do that with drugs, violent crimes, and extortion.”

    Days later, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven admitted a connection between migration and crime.

    “With a large migration, where we cannot cope with integration, then there is also a greater risk of the kind of problems that we see. It’s crystal clear,” he confessed.”

    “Gunmen riding on a motorcycle in southwestern Pakistan shot and killed a popular local singer and father of a human rights activist outside his home, police said Friday.

    The fatal shooting took place on Thursday in the town of Turbat, in the country’s restive southwestern Baluchistan province. The slain singer, Hanif Chamrok, is the father of women’s right activist Tayyaba Baloch. She has been a vocal critic of Pakistani security forces, which often detain suspects in Baluchistan over alleged links to militants.

    Local police chief Roshan Ali said the motive for the killing was not immediately known and no one had so far claimed responsibility for the slaying. The gunmen fled the scene after the shooting…”

    “A Libyan armed group is holding hostage at least 60 migrants, including two dozen children, in “appalling” conditions after abducting them almost two weeks ago, an aid group said on Saturday.

    Masked militiamen abducted the migrants on Sept. 28 from the town of al-Ajaylat, around 80 kilometers west of the capital, Tripoli, according to Medecins Sans Frontieres. The statement said that the armed group initially took hostage around 350 migrants, mainly from West Africa, but that most of the migrants managed to escape while some others were released.

    The aid group said that it had notified the Libyan government’s agency for combatting illegal migration two days after the abduction, and later visited the warehouse where the migrants were held…”

    • Knock knock

      Joe who
      I can’t remember.
      I heard a little boy at a craft sale in Canada, tell that to his Grandmother.

      When we first heard about the virus, “peoplekind” went into all store with no masks. Today I went to an OUTDOOR craft sale on this beautiful, windy, sunny day in October. People were lined up to get in, 5 come out five were allowed to go in, you had to wear a mask, even tiny children and you were told to use hand sanitizer, even the little children. Hand sanitizer bottles were placed on all the tables, and people were using them like there was no tomorrow.
      I did not wear a mask and I did not use the hand sanitizer, I did put on some plastic gloves when asked.

      I was the only person who did not wear a mask. OUTSIDE A little boy asked me why I did not have a mask on and I told him I do not wear one, he said he did not want to wear one either and his grandmother told him he had to so he would not get sick.

      I saw some people there that I have know for years, they were all masked and using the hand sanitizer on this beautiful, windy, sunny day in October.

      Before I thought it was all kinda amusing and now I think it is just scary. What next?

    Putin once again denied that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 U.S. election and pledged to work with whomever wins the 2020 election, Newsweek reported. But he favorably remarked on the Democratic Party’s ideology, comparing it to the old Soviet Union’s Communist Party, and said those shared values may be a “basis for developing contacts” with Biden should he win the White House.

  16. Mike Pompeo says he will release Hillary’s emails before the election after Trump criticizes him publicly

    “We’re getting all this information out so the American people can see it”

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he would be releasing more of Hillary Clinton’s emails after the president publicly criticized him about the subject on Fox News.

    Pompeo made the comments to Dana Perino of Fox News on Friday after the “Daily Briefing” host played for him criticism from the president about the lack of released documents.

    “They’re in the State Department, but Mike Pompeo has been unable to get them out. Which is very sad. Actually I’m not happy about him for that reason,” said Trump in the recording.

    “He was unable to get them out, and I don’t know why, you’re running the State Department, you get them out, forget about the fact that they were classified! Let’s go! Maybe Mike Pompeo finally finds them, OK?” he added.

    Perino also played video from Trump criticizing Pompeo during a radio interview with Rush Limbaugh.

    “She deleted 33,000 emails, she should be in jail for that,” said Trump. “I don’t even care if they’re very highly confidential emails, I don’t care what.”

    “So what is the state of this investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails at the State Department?” asked Perino.

    “We got the emails, we’re getting them out, we’re getting all this information out so the American people can see it” said Pompeo.

    “You’ll remember there was classified information on a private server, it should have never been there. Hillary Clinton should have never have done that. It was unacceptable behavior, it’s not the kind of thing that leaders do,” he added.

    “They don’t put that kind of information out and you can see, whether it’s Russia, or China, or Iran, or the North Koreans who want to get their hands on this kind of information, classified information needs to stay in the right places,” he continued. “Secretary Clinton, when she was here at the State Department, did not do that.”

    Perino pointed out that the president could declassify the information himself and release it, and Pompeo agreed. He also said that the president would never release information that would put any intelligence sources in harm’s way.

    When asked if that information would come out before the election, he responded, “doing it as fast as we can, I certainly, I certainly think there’ll be more to see before the election.”
    Here’s the video of the exchange from Dana Perino’s show:

    “The Democratic Party is traditionally closer to … social democratic ideas. And it was from the social democratic environment that the Communist Party evolved. After all, I was a member of the Soviet Communist Party for nearly 20 years. I was a rank-and-file member, but it can be said that I believed in the party’s ideas. I still like many of these left-wing values. Equality and fraternity. What is bad about them? In fact, they are akin to Christian values.”

  19. Thanks to Trump, China’s Huawei Is Dying

    by Gordon G. Chang
    October 10, 2020 at 5:00 am

    By cutting off the supply of semiconductors, the Trump administration is severely undermining the viability of China’s Huawei Technologies, currently the world’s leading manufacturer of both telecom networking gear and smartphones.

    And as goes Huawei, so goes China’s ambitions of dominating global communications.

    Washington has accused Huawei of persistent theft of U.S. intellectual property. In addition, the current administration believes the company poses a national security threat because Beijing uses its equipment to surreptitiously take data flowing through its servers and other networking gear.

    At the beginning of this year, it was a sure bet that the Shenzhen-based Huawei, already in more than 170 countries, would dominate 5G, the fifth generation of wireless communications, for years.

    Huawei, which says it is employee-owned but is in reality in the hands of the Chinese state, is one of China’s “national champions,” and it had 5G covered at both ends. The company has maintained its lead as the world’s No. 1 maker of networking gear, a crown it has worn for years. Furthermore, in the second quarter of this year, according to industry trackers Canalys and IDC, it had leapt past South Korea’s Samsung to become the leading manufacturer of smartphones.
