Reader’s Links for May 1st, 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.

  2. Here we have a fairly new organization the goal of which is to control capital. It is a top-down approach with Mark Carney and Mike Bloomberg at the helm. In reading this fairly nonsensical gobbledygook, most of the meat is at the beginning, though I’m sure a few rereads will reveal more.


    Clearly, any money man who is not speaking out–if he chooses to say anything– about sound money or the current peril of free markets must be on the wrong side of something. In this example we have two globalists tasking themselves with capital controls in the name of the green revolution. It seems to me that the heavy lifting of globalist agendas is in the honing of the initial narrative. This is the basis from which to begin. Every single one of them, from climate change to the Wuhan flu, to mRNA injections, to Modern Monetary Theory, to gender fluidity, offers a hard story to a soft head.

    I take particular note here of the influence of George Soros. The grandaddy of NGO utility is seen everywhere a job is too dirty or unseemly for government. Usually capital controls are exerted by government in a time of crisis. Money is forbidden from leaving a jurisdiction, or people are forbidden from accessing their own bank account.

    Here, however, we have the politicization of capital for the cause of sustainable climate management. That these two men are likely quite brilliant given their career success, my own myopia at their foresight comes to the fore. After all, how does a mere plebe argue with a former Bank of Canada and Bank of England head, and a billionaire?

    Their success has come in an age of easy money and con men. They will coerce capital until all capital is destroyed. Capital cannot be politicized for long, and live. Ask the Soviet Union, which survived on western credit.

    Where will our credit come from, Mr. Carney?

    What If ‘domestic FDR’ Biden becomes ‘wartime FDR’ too?

    Joe Biden, Xi Jinping

    President Biden’s affinity for President Franklin D. Roosevelt is well documented. Both men took office during unprecedented economic crises and sought vast historical expansions of government programs and spending to address the turmoil.

    During Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress Wednesday night, he tried to justify tax increases on the wealthy to pay for $4 trillion in proposed initiatives — after the passage of a $1.9 trillion pandemic relief bill — by noting that “85% of Americans received $1,400 rescue checks.”

    Naturally, Biden turned to his big-government mentor, saying, “In another era when our democracy was tested, Franklin Roosevelt reminded us: In America, we do our part. We all do our part. That’s all I’m asking.”

    Describing the speech’s tenor, Axios’s Jonathan Swan wrote, “I’m told Biden deliberately echoed the empathetic, quietly impassioned tone of FDR’s Fireside Chats on the radio from 1933-44.”

    ((Richard: To answer her questions, no we can’t afford to not fight China if they attack Taiwan. The problem is Biden is a Chinese Lap Dog and probably won’t fight China no matter what they do.)

  7. The Kentucky Derby Turns Down The Woke Left, Refuses To Cancel Playing Of ‘My Old Kentucky Home’

    Despite pushback from the Left, the state song of Kentucky will be played before tomorrow’s Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.

    “My Old Kentucky Home,” written by Stephen Foster, has been played before every race since 1921.

    The beloved song has come under fire as of late. According to Newsweek, “while some people consider the song to be a powerful condemnation of slavery,” others have a problem with “its original title and lyrics, and the contexts in which it has been performed, including at minstrel shows.”

    Last year’s Kentucky Derby, held on Labor Day Weekend due to the COVID-19 pandemic, used a modified version of the song, performed by a bugler without lyrics, and preceded by a moment of silence. The change to the presentation of the song was due to the social justice protests taking place at the time surrounding the death of Breonna Taylor.

  8. Cuomo Casts Doubt on Census After New York Loses Congressional Seat, Threatens ‘Legal Optons’

    The Empire State version of the blame game was in full swing Tuesday as political leaders reacted to a Census tally that found the state 89 people short of keeping its current number of 27 congressional districts.

    Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo blamed the Trump administration.

    “Census takers in New York faced unprecedented challenges last year in their efforts to get New Yorkers counted — from the pandemic’s effect on the mail system to the Trump Administration’s xenophobic, flagrant, and illegal efforts to hurt blue states by discouraging non-citizens and people of color from being counted,” Cuomo said in a statement, referring to former President Donald Trump’s unsuccessful 2019 effort to force the Census to add a question about citizenship.

    “[W]e won’t allow Trump and his cronies to use one of our greatest attributes — our diversity — as an impediment. I’m calling on the Attorney General to review all legal options available to ensure the voice of every New Yorker is fairly and wholly represented in the halls of Congress,” he said.

    He still has to meet with Péter Szijjártó, Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, who when that happens, I’m sure will tell him of Hungary’s concerns about the U.S. pot calling the Hungarian kettle black.

  11. – Quebec bar owners call on province to allow them to reopen to vaccinated patrons –

    (My thoughts: will there be a Black Market on fake vaccination papers? If one really wants to go to a bar, one can borrow proof of vaccination from a friend or relative and use cash only.)

    MONTREAL — Quebec bar owners want the government to allow them to reopen for patrons who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

    Two associations representing bar owners wrote to Premier François Legault to say modifying the public health order that has closed bars since October would bring some much-needed reprieve for the hard-hit sector.

    They also suggest that allowing partially vaccinated people access to bars would help encourage vaccine-hesitant Quebecers to get a shot.

    The associations say in the letter that any reopening would include strict public health measures enforced by bar owners.

    As of Thursday, about 35 per cent of adult Quebecers had received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

    The government said Thursday it will open vaccination appointments to all adult Quebecers by mid-May; people 50 to 59 became eligible today to book an appointment.

    This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 30, 2021.

  12. My FREEDOM should trump your fear.

    Two women – – Two opinions – – and perhaps indication of how we got this far.

    e-mail to member of parliament:

    Dear Mrs. Hughes,
    The right of people in Canada to peacefully assemble and worship in their church is still under attack after more than a year’s worth of excessive COVID-related restrictions.
    And now, legal action is being taken against MP Dereck Sloan and MPP Randy Hillier, simply for attending a church service at the Church of God in Aylmer, Ontario. They now face charges that could result in the levying of a $100,000 fine, or jail time.
    As your constituent, I’m asking you to advocate for these charges, to be dropped as soon as possible and fight back against the unconstitutional restrictions that they resulted from.
    People like MP Sloan and MPP Hillier are being targeted and now persecuted by law enforcement in Ontario and across our country simply for exercising their rights to worship freely. This kind of tyranny has no place in Canada and it must be properly addressed by our politicians in government immediately.
    Sincerely E T

    Dear E T,
    Thank you for your e-mail sharing concerns regarding the recent charges against MP Sloan and MPP Hillier.

    MP Sloan and MPP Hillier were both charged with violating Ontario’s Reopening Act. Both Mr. Sloan and particularly Mr. Hillier, as an Ontario MPP, are well aware of the restrictions that the Provincial Government has put in place that relate to disrespecting these orders. It appears to me they may be using the threat of charges and arrest to bolster their profiles following their respective removal from their party caucuses. Like most Ontarian’s I have been actively respecting public measures and have little sympathy for individuals who would actively promote an event designed to undermine public health.
    Kind Regards,
    Carol Hughes, MP

    Full disclosure – – I did not vote for Mrs. Hughes and never will.

    M-103 , I ask her to vote against, she voted in favour and sent me an e-mail stating I should not get caught up in internet hysteria.

    I recently asked her not to take her automatic pay raise as of April 1, since many of her constituents have had financial troubles during this COVID year. Her reply to me was she had to take it, that is the way it is set up.

    I shall not bother sending her any more e-mails, we are two very different individuals who will probably never agree on what is expected from an elected representative.

    My freedom trumps your fear.

  13. California to open the prison gates

    California to open the prison gates

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — With little notice, California on Saturday is increasing early release credits for 76,000 inmates, including violent and repeat felons, as it further trims the population of what once was the nation’s largest state correctional system.

    More than 63,000 inmates convicted of violent crimes will be eligible for good behavior credits that shorten their sentences by one-third instead of the one-fifth that had been in place since 2017.

    That includes nearly 20,000 inmates who are serving life sentences with the possibility of parole.

    More than 10,000 inmates convicted of a second serious but nonviolent offense under the state’s “three strikes” law will be eligible for release after serving half their sentences. That’s an increase from the current time-served credit of one-third of their sentence.

    The same increased release time will apply to nearly 2,900 nonviolent third strikers, the corrections department projected.

    Also as of Saturday, all minimum security inmates in work camps, including those in firefighting camps, will be eligible for the same month of earlier release for every month they spend in the camp, regardless of the severity of their crime.

  14. First Amendment expanded, defended in new state laws

    First Amendment expanded, defended in new state laws

    Free speech is being protected on college campuses in Montana thanks to new state laws.

    Gov. Greg Gianforte signed two bills April 15 that passed in the state legislature mostly along party lines according to The Associated Press.

    Gianforte, a first-term governor, is a Republican.

    One bill requires that available college funding must flow to recognized student groups that are religious, political and ideological in nature regardless if some find their views offensive.

    The second bill bans campuses from creating a “free speech zone” that effectively confines First Amendment-protected activities to a designated area.

    Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Zack Pruitt tells One News Now such zones are rare across Montana and that, he says, was the point of the bill.

    “There’s nothing to prevent a teacher, administrator or dean from instituting them,” he points out. “And that’s a sign of the proactive nature of this bill is to make sure not only for now but for future that free speech zones to be prohibited among Montana campuses.”

    According to the AP story, the funding law drew complaints from far-left groups that claim it allows discrimination. In reality, campus leftists routinely discriminate against religious and political groups — or attempt to — because they disagree with their views.

    Mexican Official Just Outed Kamala Harris – She Could Offer Citizenship In Exchange For Planting Trees
    What’s Happening:

    Kamala Harris is supposed to be dealing with the border crisis.

    But because everyone in the Biden administration appears to be unqualified on the border, she is making one mistake after another.

    Instead of just securing the border (and sending migrants home), she seems to be trying to bribe nations to prevent their people from leaving.

    It was recently announced she is sending hundreds of millions of dollars to foreign nations to help with their own borders.

    But her latest idea just might be the must surprising thing you read about all week.

    From Western Journal:

    • The way the Gobi Desert is spreading is caused by the Chinese Government planting trees which are soaking up the ground water from the grass that use to keep the desert from spreading. Mao started his program so the communist party can’t change it to a ration one of cutting down the scrub brush the saplings turn into and planing grass.

    The Department of Defense (DOD) announced it is canceling U.S.-Mexico border wall construction efforts that were paid with funds that were initially allocated for the military.

    Former President Donald Trump ordered the diversion of billions of dollars in military and defense funds toward building the wall, using his emergency executive powers.

  17. the gateway pundit – WaPo and NYT Retract Smear of Rudy Giuliani that Falsely Claimed FBI Gave Him Defensive Briefings on Russian Influence Ops

    The Washington Post and New York Times on Saturday both retracted false reports published this week that said the FBI had given Rudy Giuliani a defensive briefing warning him about being a target of Russian influence operations. The Post also reported One America News had also been briefed.

    Both Giuliani and OAN had denied the briefings took place.

    The retraction and correction by the Post:

    “Correction: An earlier version of this story, published Thursday, incorrectly reported that One America News was warned by the FBI that it was the target of a Russian influence operation. That version also said the FBI had provided a similar warning to Rudolph W. Giuliani, which he has since disputed. This version has been corrected to remove assertions that OAN and Giuliani received the warnings.”

    New York Times correction and retraction:

    “Correction: May 1, 2021
    An earlier version of this article misstated whether Rudolph W. Giuliani received a formal warning from the F.B.I. about Russian disinformation. Mr. Giuliani did not receive such a so-called defensive briefing.”

    CNN’s Oliver Darcy posted a before and after of the Times article before the correction had been added.
