Reader’s Links for June 2, 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. WRT the above, I guess that he is back?

    https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/06/most-important-book-you-will-read-year-bruce-bawer/

    Rarely has an author been proven correct so quickly. Last month, Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, the commander of a Colorado-based Space Force squadron, published a book entitled Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military. On May 7, podcaster L. Todd Wood (“Information Operation”) posted an interview with Lohmeier about the book.

    In their 34-minute exchange, Lohmeier – a former Air Force fighter pilot and flight instructor who, at Space Force, was in charge of detecting ballistic missile launches – exuded decency, rectitude, and a deep respect for the uniformed services. He didn’t criticize anybody by name; he only made frankly undeniable statements about the Marxist nature of some of the ideas that are now being taught to U.S. servicepeople. It was crystal clear that in speaking out, he was convinced he was doing his patriotic duty.

    A week to the day after the interview was posted, Lohmeier’s superiors abruptly relieved him of his command. A Space Force spokesperson announced that an investigation had been initiated into whether Lohmeier’s comments on the podcast “constituted prohibited partisan political activity.” In fact, the entire point of Lohmeier’s commentary was that members of the American military are today being brainwashed with hard-core Marxist ideas that not only constitute partisan political activity but seek to demonize the country the military is supposed to be defending. As for Lohmeier’s own comments, there was nothing remotely partisan or political about them – unless you consider it partisan or political to be a patriot.
    On the one hand, Lohmeier’s dismissal is a disgrace. On the other hand, what better way to draw attention to the supremely urgent message of his book – a truly sensational exposé that should be read by everyone who cares about America’s fate in this perilous era of woke insanity.

  2. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/06/01/joe-biden-terrorism-from-white-supremacy-the-most-lethal-threat-to-the-homeland/
    President Joe Biden asserted Tuesday that terrorism from white supremacy was “the most lethal threat” facing the United States.

    Biden spoke about the threat of white supremacy during a speech in Tulsa marking the 100th anniversary of the 1921 race massacre in the Greenwood neighborhood.

    “According to the intelligence community, terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today,” Biden said. “Not ISIS. Not Al Qaeda. White supremacists.”

    Biden was likely referring to a statement from acting U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, who told members of Congress that white supremacy was “the most persistent and lethal threat” to the United States in September 2020. In October 2020, DHS released a report showing that white supremacist extremism accounted for more fatal attacks than any other domestic violent extremist group since 2018.

  4. Bluck, Bluck more China luck

    A man in Eastern China has contracted what might be the world’s first CASE of the H10N3 strain of bird flu, but the risk of spread is low the government said.
    The 41 year old man from Jiangsu province, northwest of Shanghai, was hospitalized April 28 and is in stable condition, the National Health Commission said on its website.

    “This infection is an accidental cross-species transmission, the risk of transmission is low. no human case of H10N3 has been reported.

    Between 2013 and 2017 another bird flu named H5N1 infected more than 1500 people in China through close contact with chickens.

  5. Iran’s fleet oiler, Kharg, sinks under mysterious circumstances after catching fire in Gulf of Oman – Liberty Unyielding

    Iran’s fleet oiler, Kharg, sinks under mysterious circumstances after catching fire in Gulf of Oman

    Kharg (431), Iran’s fleet oiler, on fire in the Gulf of Oman on 2 June 2021. Via Twitter

    Though the Kharg‘s disaster would have nothing to do with the potential deployment of a two-warship Iranian task force to Venezuela, it is — as always — interesting that the replenishment ship sank within days of the oceangoing task force being reported in Western media.

    The interest lies not so much in a direct operational connection as in the overall profile of evidence that Iran’s efforts to probe and jab at the stability of the Middle East are ramping up. Instead of being ignored or failing to make the news, Iran’s activities — and possibly the reaction to them — are inching onto the front page. In less than a week, there’s been dramatic news about Iranian operations that have the potential to relate to, and draw direct reactions from, the United States and Israel.

    Citing Iranian official news sources, the Washington Post reports that the fleet oiler Kharg (pennant 431), after catching fire in the 2:00 AM hour (Iranian local time), sank on Wednesday in the Gulf of Oman, apparently near Jask.

    • There is some interesting speculation in this article, there are few facts known so She is speculating about what happened. JE says that given the speed that the ship sank there was a large hull breach well below the water line. As she says a mine is possible but so is a torpedo, if it was the latter the level of violence and weapons used has been dramatically raised to a new level.

      • Mysterious Explosions Remind Iran That Mossad Neither Slumbers Nor Sleeps

        Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh claims a great “victory” in Gaza, and Iran’s Supreme Leader similarly gloats over the lesson the “axis of resistance” has taught the Zionists. Both men are hallucinating…

        A few days after Israel announced it had shot down an Iranian armed drone on its border with Jordan, the world learned of a mysterious explosion at an Iranian drone factory in Isfahan….

        A day later (that is, the day after the drone factory explosion), there was another mysterious explosion, this one at an oil refinery on the coast.…

        And on May 26, Iranian state media reported on still a third explosion, this one at an oxygen pipeline in a petrochemical plant in Assaluyeh on Iran’s Gulf coast. There was no mention of its cause….

    • Disaster for Iran as its largest naval ship sinks
      […]
      It was considered one of the larger naval vessels in the region. “This ship could supply city electricity such as to Bandar Abbas with its generators, so that by running all generators and steam systems, it could reach 6000 kWh of electricity.”

      This appears to be a major setback for Iran. Iran has recently tried to increase its naval footprint, acquiring new ships and sending ships to the Red Sea and as far as Venezuela.

      In November last year Iran showed off a naval vessel called Shahid Roudaki festooned with drones and weapons. Iran also said in February it received 340 new vessels for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ navy. Iranian submarines however have appeared to be in dry dock.

      The Kharq was large and participated in many activities over the years. It was considered an important ship for long range operations. This is because Iranian frigates and other vessels need it as a sort of “mother ship.” In April another Iranian ship called Saviz that operates as another kind of “mother ship” was attacked in the Red Sea.

      According to The Wall Street Journal Israel has carried out a dozen attacks on Iranian ships over the last several years, mostly ships transporting oil. Iran has been accused of attacking three ships linked to Israel this year as well in areas around the Gulf of Oman.

      • A not-so-subtle message. The culprit? Remember President Trump’s first foreign visit, when the world laughed at leaders of that area with Trump putting their hand on an illuminated globe. Many partnerships were formed during that visit.

        • That is the most likely nation, what I found interesting is the way JE Dyer mentioned the possibility of Torpedoes being used, this would be a major escalation of the level of weapons being used. Granted the sinking of a Iranian Naval Vessel already raises the level of violence being used but a torpedo means either a torpedo boat or a sub. Given the location a sub would be the most likely platform used.

    Iran to rearm Hamas with ‘thousands of new rockets’

    [Ed. – Hamas’s rhetoric certainly clarifies that the latest onslaught against Israel was about a “forever war,” and the claims about grievances over “Sheikh Jarrah” and police at Al Aqsa mere conveniences deployed as propaganda.]

    The Iranian regime is giving Hamas terrorists resources to produce “thousands of new rockets” in the Gaza Strip, according to a new report in Tehran’s state-controlled media.

    Following a two-week-long war with Israel this month in which Hamas and other terror groups bombarded the Jewish state with missiles funded and provided by Iran, Hamas is moving to restock its weapons cache.

      UPDATED: Iranian Warship Thought to be Headed to Venezuela Left Port with 7 High-Speed Missile Boats Aboard

      …The seven missile craft aboard Makran are each approximately 57 feet (17.5 meters) long and match the Peykaap family of medium-sized fast attack craft operated by Iran…..

      Additionally, the ship could be carrying other military equipment not readily apparent from the imagery. A converted oil tanker, Makran is the Iranian Navy’s newest and largest warship. Its new role has been compared to the U.S. Navy’s Expeditionary Sea Base (ESB).

      Like the ESBs, the 755-foot long Makran is designed to be a mobile sea base for small boats and aircraft capable of operating anywhere around the world. The conversion added a large flight deck, the capacity to carry boats and other equipment on deck and additional cargo below.

      There has been concern that Venezuela may attempt to acquire ballistic missile technology from Iran. Some areas of the deck are now covered, so it has not been possible to assess the full cargo of the ship.

      Venezuela’s regime, led by President Nicola Maduro, has talked openly about acquiring arms from Iran. Meanwhile, Iranian special forces belonging to the IRGC’s Quds force may already be assisting the Venezuelan military.

  8. Germany: Bundeswehr soldier attacked at Senate Department for Health, suspect on the run

    A heavy police presence was observed outside the Senate Department for Health in Berlin on Tuesday, after a Bundeswehr soldier working there was attacked by an unidentified person.

    Police said the attacker has pushed the soldier to the ground at around 16:45 local time (14:45 GMT). Civil servants working in the building were instructed not to leave their offices as 200 police officers spent several hours looking for the attacker.

    The assailant has not been found yet.

    Health senator Dilek Kalayci (SPD), was evacuated from the building in a black vehicle under police protection.

    The victim belongs to the Bundeswehr forces who are supporting health authorities in combating the coronavirus pandemic.

  9. https://quadrant.org.au/opinion/doomed-planet/2021/05/the-stoic-endurance-of-peter-ridd/

    This is long ongoing court case typical now of woke academia and climate lies.

    Peter’s concern is wider than that. He is on a mission to resurrect a commitment to quality in scientific research across the board and has a vision to establish a centre to further this aim. His area of operations, to appropriate a military term, is not confined to Australia but is global.

    He is hopeful the High Court will reinstitute Judge Vasta’s ruling, but is not over-confident. He told me that it was touch-and-go at the hearing of his application for special leave to appeal. The feeling of his legal team was that, at the start of the hearing, the panel was inclined two-to-one against him but that they managed to turn that around to two-to-one in favour.

    As far as the Reef and marine science are concerned, Peter is scathing about supposed confreres, saying many actually know very little about their subject. That might simply be down to the tendency of increasing specialisation, such as worrying about the effects of increased levels of CO2 exposure on fish behaviour. Serendipitously, Peter’s alma mater, James Cook University,CU, is currently under fire for alleged academic malfeasance in this area, as The Australian reported:

    An international scandal has erupted over claims of scientific fraud involving 22 papers linked to James Cook University’s prestigious Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies.

    The Australian Research Council, the US National Science Foundation and JCU have been asked to investigate the allegations detailed in an article published in Science magazine on Friday.

    The article, which was supported by the international Science Fund for Investigative Reporting, is the culmination of years of ­research and contested claims over how fish behaviour is changed by rising levels of carbon dioxide in the oceans.

    A team of researchers claim to have evidence of manipulation in publicly available raw data files for two papers, one published in ­Science, the other in Nature ­Climate Change, combined with remarkably large and “statistically impossible” effects from CO2 reported in many of the other papers.

    Good news for Dr Ridd, you might have thought, given that this particular scandal – symptomatic of the general malaise that concerns him – should be sheeted home to his institutional adversary. It is worth noting that it was the Centre for Excellence that brought the original charge against Ridd for his assertion that its output was untrustworthy due to an unsatisfactory quality assurance regime. But as he points out, it is quite possible that their Honours, who will hear his case, may well not have heard of this scandal, it being reported only in The Australian. And that, given the modern propensity of the woke – among whom we can confidently include any number of judges – to simply ignore inconvenient truths, it may not carry the weight it should. Let’s hope he is being unduly pessimistic on this.

    Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D), who has battled Republicans seeking to perpetuate former President Trump’s lies about the results of the 2020 elections, will run for governor in a state President Biden narrowly carried last year.

    Hobbs, 51, is one of only two Democrats to hold statewide office in Arizona. She won office in 2018 by a margin of just 5,700 votes out of more than 2.1 million cast in the same election that made Kyrsten Sinema the first Democrat to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate in a generation.

    Insects have long been a staple food in Asia. In Europe, not so much.

    But diets are changing, with ever more people trying to avoid meat – for health or moral reasons, or because raising farm animals is less and less sustainable.

    Now, the European Commission has officially declared mealworms to be food. It’s a game changer for insect farmers, many of whom have so far operated under temporary license.

    Insects are rich in protein: Up to 70 percent of their entire mass is protein. In addition to that, they’re also rich in healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, like fish. Some insects, especially the mealworm, have over 14 percent of fatty acids – that’s seven times as much as fish.

    […]In the background artificial intelligence scans the footage for rulebreakers.

    […]Employees of a surveillance center called “city brain” in Shanghai’s Pudong district have direct control over cameras that cover almost every corner of the district.

    […]Projects like Pudong’s city brain show that China’s government sees data as a means of control.

    Where is Hunter? A top Trump White House official suggested the public will be hearing more about President Joe Biden’s son in the future.

    Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows teased what he may know about the Biden family’s business dealings during an interview Wednesday on Newsmax.

    “I can tell you, there is more to come with Hunter Biden,” Meadows told host Grant Stinchfield.

    “It’s amazing how Joe Biden and Hunter Biden actually had a quid pro quo, and to accuse President Trump of using his influence to enrich his family was just not accurate,” Meadows added. “And now, what we’re seeing is perhaps the real influence-peddling that took place was by then-Vice President Joe Biden.”

  17. No Work, No Pay, For The Democrats Who Walked Out Of The Texas House Chamber
    4-5 minutes

    Democrats recently stalked off the floor of the Texas House Chamber in order to prevent the Texas GOP from passing Senate Bill 7, a voting rights bill relating to election integrity and security. But Gov. Greg Abbott is pushing back against the Dems and has threatened to veto the state legislature’s budget if they choose to abandon their responsibilities and deny the state the necessary quorum to hold a vote. This move would prevent members from getting paid.

    “I will veto Article 10 of the budget passed by the legislature. Article 10 funds the legislative branch. No pay for those who abandon their responsibilities. Stay tuned,” Abbott tweeted shortly before calling a special legislative session.

    Gov. Abbott is threatening to veto the legislative part of the state’s budget plan, which contains $410.2 million for the legislative branch, including a $600 a month salary for lawmakers and salaries for support staff. The section of the plan also includes funding for various agencies such as the Legislative Budget Board, the State Auditor’s Office, and the Legislative Reference Library.

    As Biden Buys Iranian Oil, Iran Rearms Hamas – Conservative Journal
    Written by Conservatives Journal
    6-7 minutes

    How much do Old Joe Biden’s handlers want a new accord with jihad terror-exporting Iran? So much that, as Reuters reported Sunday, “the United States imported a rare cargo of 1.033 million barrels of Iranian crude in March despite sanctions on Iran’s energy sector.” This is “only the second oil import by the United States from Iran since late 1991,” and what is the money U.S. taxpayers gave to Iran for this oil going for? According to Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency, Hamas top dog Fathi Hamad said on the same day: “With the end of the Israeli regime’s latest aggression, the Palestinian resistance has resumed the process of rocket production. Our factories and workshops have restarted producing thousands of rockets to stop Netanyahu’s intransigence in Al-Quds [Jerusalem] and Tel Aviv.” Who is paying for the thousands of new rockets? The same Islamic Republic of Iran from which we are now buying oil.

    Remember that, as the ceasefire began, another Iranian government organ, Press TV, noted that another Hamas top dog, Political Bureau chief Ismail Haniyeh, “thanked Iran for its financial and military support for the Palestinian resistance forces in Gaza.” And Abu Hamza, a spokesman for Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s al-Quds Brigades, “lauded Iran and the resistance front for enhancing the financial and technical capabilities of the Palestinian resistance factions, saying, ‘You are partners in our victory.’”

    “The entire Belt and Road initiative is based on forced labor,” according to Li Qiang, director of China Labor Watch, an organization that recently published a report detailing the conditions of some overseas Chinese workers who are building China’s Belt and Road infrastructure projects across the world.

    “The entire Belt and Road initiative is based on forced labor,” according to Li Qiang, director of China Labor Watch. “Chinese authorities want the Belt and Road projects for political gain and need to use these workers.”

    A new report, “Silent Victims of Labor Trafficking: China’s Belt and Road workers stranded overseas amid Covid-19 pandemic” by China Labor Watch, published on April 30, details the conditions of some of those overseas Chinese workers, who are building China’s Belt and Road infrastructure projects across the world. China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) forms a crucial part of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) foreign policy and is a key tool in China’s ambition to become a global superpower.

    China Labor Watch spoke to approximately 100 Chinese BRI workers in Indonesia, Algeria, Singapore, Jordan, Pakistan and Serbia. Many shared similar stories. According to the report:

    In March, the Small Business Administration gave a $234,548 Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) “loan” to George Soros’s East-West Management Institute (EWMI).

    The official description of the transaction is “to aid small businesses in maintaining workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic”, but federal grants and contracts to EWMI (its primary source of revenue) rose from $9,185,194 in FY 2019 to $14,859,293 in 2020. EWMI previously received a $226,179 PPP loan in May of 2020. As a supposedly small business struggling through the pandemic, EWMI enjoys office space at 575 Madison Avenue in New York City and 1101 Connecticut Ave NW in Washington, DC.

    In November 2018, Judicial Watch published a special report, “The Financial and Staffing Nexus Between the Open Society Foundations and the United States Government.” The 28-page report is scrupulously documented with 154 footnotes citing to primary source records. A key take-away from the report concerning the activities of EWMI is that the organization manages projects for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), a nominally independent component of the U.S. State Department.

  22. Censoring Aish Hatorah?!

    Instagram Censors Jewish Website Fighting Anti-Semitism

    The popular worldwide Jewish education institution Aish Hatorah reports that Instagram has blocked several of its postings that were trying to educate the public about anti-Semitism.

    Aish Hatorah runs Aish.com, one of the world’s largest Judaism websites. Chief editor Rabbi Nechemia Coopersmith said that with the alarming uptick in anti-Semitism in North America, they have made it a priority to create social media content not only to educate the world about Jew-hatred, but also to advise what to do about it.

    “But Instagram didn’t like what we’re doing and censored us,” Coopersmith said Monday, explaining that the social media platform that is owned by Facebook objected to a series of slides that highlight the current availability of Hitler’s infamous book Mein Kampf on the Amazon website and some of the history behind the book.

    The images posted on the Aish Hatorah Instagram account all had graphics that described Hitler’s insidious political manifesto that helped spark World War II including an image showing that Mein Kampf can still be bought online in America.

    “We shared the facts. The fact that anti-Semitic literature is readily available for sale around the world, including on Amazon. We told the truth,” Aish posted on its Facebook page.

    Coopersmith said that Instagram considered the posts “insidious, hateful or offensive.”
