Reader’s Links for April 29, 2021

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. “Leading up to Derek Chauvin’s murder trial, Justice Department officials had spent months gathering evidence to indict the ex-Minneapolis police officer on federal police brutality charges, but they feared the publicity frenzy could disrupt the state’s case.

    So they came up with a contingency plan: If Chauvin were found not guilty on all counts or the case ended in a mistrial, they would arrest him at the courthouse, according to sources familiar with the planning discussions.”

    The officers should not have been fired but suspended so that the Police would then have investigated for any evidence of federal police brutality first, and not allowed the mob to use the Court System for feeding grievances.

    When the Law has no procedure for innocence until proven guilty, it ceases to be Justice for anyone.

Along with these white communist missionaries came the Negro political Uncle Toms to allay the Negro’s distrust and fears of these strangers. Everything was interracial, an inter-racialism artificially created, cleverly devised as a camouflage of the red plot to use the Negro.[vii]”

    As President Biden prepares for his first State of the Union address this evening, events are occurring in Southwest Asia that in other circumstances would be getting significantly more attention.

    They seem to be of a piece. And if they are not manifestations of the same perception of U.S. weakness – well, basically, it’s a pointless matter of special pleading to claim that they aren’t.

    The interesting thing this week is the minimal, muted notice they’re getting in the U.S. media. If you’re not reading foreign media, it’s possible you don’t even know they’re happening,

    • SPAIN – EL PAIS – Man in Mallorca arrested for infecting 22 people with the coronavirus

      According to police, the individual went to work with a fever and told his colleagues: “I’m going to infect you all with Covid”

      A 40-year-old man has been arrested in the Mallorcan town of Manacor in Spain’s Balearic Islands on suspicion of assault for allegedly infecting 22 people with the coronavirus. Eight of them contracted the virus after coming into direct contact with the man at his workplace and at a gym, and another 14 were infected indirectly. According to the National Police, the detainee went to work despite having a fever of 40ºC and walked around his workplace without a face mask, threatening to spread the coronavirus to his colleagues. The individual was placed in custody on Friday and released after appearing before the duty court in Manacor.

      According to the National Police, the investigation began in January after a coronavirus outbreak was detected in Manacor, with several contagions reported in the same workplace – a well-known food retailer in the town. Workers told police that one of their workmates could have been responsible for the outbreak, saying he may have hidden the fact that he was sick. Further investigation found that the man had presented coronavirus symptoms but continued to go to work regardless. His colleagues had started to worry because he had a bad cough but refused to go home.

      One day in this period, after finishing work and seeing that his condition was not improving, the man went to a medical center to get a PCR test. But instead of following protocol and staying at home in quarantine until the results came back, he decided to go to work the next day and then afterward to the gym. Both his workmates and the head of the food establishment told him to go home on numerous occasions, arguing he had to remain in isolation as a precaution until he knew the test results. But the man ignored these orders. At the end of that day, he was told he had tested positive for the coronavirus.

      During the investigation, workers from the store told police that the 40-year-old had a fever of 40ºC and was walking around the workplace with his mask down, coughing loudly and saying: “I am going to infect you all with Covid.” The workers tried to stay far away from him as they were certain he had the virus.

      After the test result came back positive, all the workers from the store had to self-isolate and take a PCR test. Five workers tested positive and they had also spread the virus to several family members, including three one-year-old babies. Another three people were infected at the gym the man went to while he was sick. These three had also spread the virus to their close contacts. A total of 22 people – eight directly and 14 indirectly – had caught the coronavirus from the 40-year-old. No one was hospitalized due to the virus and one of the cases was asymptomatic.

      =========================

      LEGAL EXPERT ALBERTO GARCÍA
      According to Jaime Campanar, a specialist in criminal law, the man could be charged for willful assault (he knew the possible impact of his actions, although he was not aiming to hurt anyone) or reckless assault for each of the five victims who directly contracted the virus from him. “Technically, the name of the charge, in this case, could be wilful negligence, which consists in not wanting a result, not wanting to hurt or spread a disease,” said Campanar. “There is no willful intent, but there is a high probability of it happening, although the accused is indifferent to whether it ends up happening and does not pay heed to the health conditions that he should have been watching for.”

      But for the individual to be charged with reckless assault, the five he directly infected would have had to have needed medical attention, according to Campanar.

      Legal expert Alberto García agreed that the only crime the man can be charged with is assault. ”The only thing similar in case law is the case of hepatitis or HIV contagions, that could go down the line of homicide given that it is a deadly illness in many cases,” he said. García added that for a person to be charged with assault, the victim must have suffered some form of physical injury, which casts doubt on whether charges can be pressed for the asymptomatic case.

    • Deutsche Pravda -Can a patent waiver speed up the global COVID vaccination drive?

      The world is far from having the number of COVID-19 vaccines needed to vaccinate every single person.

      Now, over 100 nations are pressing for a temporary patent waiver at the World Trade Organization to help speed up production.

      Some have suggested pharmaceutical companies are prioritizing profits over lives.
      Supporters of the waiver demand that know-how and technology be shared more widely – because the pandemic, they say, is an extraordinary, emergency situation.
      But a string of wealthy countries are opposing the waiver.

      And some say even if one was put in place, it would not increase vaccine production.

      So, what do the statistics show?

      Dr. Risch argues we’ve entered into a vaccine ‘mania’ in which there seems to be a ‘different motivation’ than just vaccinating for health benefits alone.

    Corporations Sign Business Statement Opposing ‘Anti-LGBTQ’ State Legislation

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Oracle, the tech giant expected to bring thousands of jobs to Nashville with a $1.2 billion investment, is among dozens of companies nationwide to oppose “harmful legislation” toward the LGBTQ community, according to the Human Rights Campaign.

    The HRC said Friday that 81 companies, including Oracle Corporation, had signed their Business Statement Opposing Anti-LGBTQ State Legislation, “stating their clear opposition to harmful legislation aimed at restricting the access of LGBTQ people in society.”

    Tennessee is among ten states listed by the HRC as having anti-LGBTQ bills sitting on the desk of their governors, including Senate Bill 1229 which was sent to Gov. Bill Lee’s desk on Thursday for a signature.

    On a tour of the proposed Oracle site, Nashville Mayor John Cooper told News 2 the tech giant is a good partner for Music City’s diverse communities.

    “It’s a hundred percent graded HRC company on issues of human rights. It is uncompromising. I think it is significant that they are going to be a large employer here in Nashville and they have an outstanding national record and outstanding national profile and I’m sure when they are here, they will be even stronger advocates for all of our people,” explained Mayor Cooper.

    Uh oh, there could be a glitch in the matrix. Based on the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, it appears that all the agitprop that’s been dished out by the gun control industry, the administration and their media stenographers has been…wrong. Yes, yes, that’s difficult to believe, but it seems that 90+% of all Americans don’t actually support enacting stricter limits on gun rights.

    Who could have possibly seen that coming?

    The last time this same poll was taken in 2018, not long after the Parkland shooting, 57% of respondents indicated a preference for more gun control. Now, however, three years later, the percentage in favor of more gun control laws has dropped to 50%.

      “I felt like I just wasn’t being able to get a full breath,” track and field runner Maggie Williams recalled to KTVZ-TV. “Multiple times of that happening, not being able to get enough air — I just felt super-dizzy, and then eventually passed out.”

      With that, Williams — competing in an 800-meter run last week for Summit High School in Bend, Oregon — collapsed at the finish line.

      Williams, a junior, told the station her lack of oxygen was a result of the mask she was required to wear during competition according to Oregon Health Authority guidelines for outdoor sports due to COVID-19.

    Just west of Naco, Arizona, former President Trump’s 30-foot border wall runs through the desert and begins to ascend through the Coronado National Memorial and into the Huachuca Mountains – until it doesn’t. Work was not completed. The Biden administration has ordered the termination of all work. Construction sites and crews are, essentially, idle – at the reported cost of over $1 million dollars per day in Cochise County, Arizona alone.

    The surge of unaccompanied children and families to the southern border — as well as the surge of non-marijuana drug trafficking across the border — is a humanitarian crisis, a health crisis and a national security crisis. It all belongs — 100% — to President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.

    His critics often joke that when President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an pledges democratic reforms, one should run away immediately. His latest charm offensive in November, aimed at repairing Turkey’s badly-strained ties with the West and Western institutions, has proven that the joke still holds value.

    “We don’t see ourselves elsewhere but in Europe,” Erdo?an said on November 21. “We envisage building our future together with Europe.” Two days later, Defense Minister Hulusi Akar described NATO as the “cornerstone of our defense and security policy” and said that Turkey was looking forward to cooperating with the incoming administration under Joe Biden in the United States. Erdo?an also promised a bold package of democratic reforms.

    California officials colluded with Big Tech to censor social media posts in the United States during the 2020 presidential election, government watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Tuesday.

    The findings come after Judicial Watch received 540 pages and a further four pages of documents from the office of the Secretary of State of California in response to an open records request, the group said.

    Wokeism has swept through the institutions, and certainly establishment medicine, particularly the New England Journal of Medicine (as I have illustrated here several times). In this week’s example, an article in the “Perspective” section — which almost always reflects the journal’s editorial stance — pushes discrimination in medicine.

    First, it inaccurately describes critical-race-theory training — which former President Trump’s now defunct executive order forbade in federal agencies — as mere “diversity” education. From, “Advancing President Biden’s Equity Agenda — Lessons From Disparities Work,” by Columbia University Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Neil K. Aggarwal:

    The 2015 nuclear accord was so favorable to Iran that Foreign Minister Javad Zarif jokingly suggested kidnapping former president Barack Obama’s daughter to ensure the deal was implemented.

    In a leaked audio tape first reported by Iran International and independently translated for the Washington Free Beacon, Zarif praises the original nuclear deal as a major win for Tehran at a time when the country was suffering under harsh economic sanctions.

    Iran, Zarif said, “scored six goals against the opponent” when the country was down 6 to 0. Zarif also recalls “jokingly” suggesting that he kidnap one of Obama’s daughters and bring her to Iran in order to guarantee the United States signed the deal and made good on its implementation.

    And their efforts worked. For example:
