Reader’s links for June 24, 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. – STUFF YOU CAN’T MAKE UP – but EVIL.

    * Music to Soothe the Climate Denial Away? *

    What does “doubt” sound like? Specifically, scientific doubt, the kind of intentionally seeded, stalling uncertainty that has become an integral — and to many, a frustrating — feature of the debate over climate change.

    To composer Yvette Janine Jackson, it has the low, somber insistence of the bass clarinet, skittering flute that cranks up anxiety, sonorous cello to hold things together, and the deep, doubting rumble of double bass.

    Jackson, an assistant professor of music at Harvard, recently added her musical voice to efforts to reach those uncertain about global warming despite the scientific consensus that the Earth is warming and its climate is shifting in unpredictable and sometimes destructive ways.

    Jackson’s 15-minute piece, “Doubt,” was written in collaboration with Naomi Oreskes, the Henry Charles Lee Professor of the History of Science whose academic work, including her 2010 book “Merchants of Doubt,” has focused on the denial of climate science. The composition was commissioned for Earth Day by Artivism for Earth, a project of the University of Utah.

    • I would think next up for the music would be those people who refuse the booster shots, special music for them. When music is used to convince people of issues they don’t agree with, we live in truly dangerous times.

    • We are a classical music family with several instrumentalists(one actually good) and as the local classical music station has become woke with the expected tsunami of rubbish that flows on from such, we rarely turn it on now but are left to our LPs and CDs and the digital versions of both. They can play whatever music they like for whatever reason they like but if it is rubbish it will be treated as such. Most modern “music” is absolute garbage although occasionally if you search the cesspit long enough or are just lucky(in my case) you find a diamond which for me gives me hope that not all is lost:

  2. – FINALLY, they’re talking about it in MSM & Tucker Carlson also –

    ‘The government is not being transparent about the risks’: Inventor of MRNA vaccines says people should not be forced to take experimental COVID vaccines because risks aren’t known and under 18s and those who’ve had virus shouldn’t take it

    Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of mRNA technology that’s used in the COVID vaccine, said young adults and teens shouldn’t be forced to get the vaccine

    He told Fox’s Tucker Carlson that there isn’t enough risk-benefit analysis data for that age group

  3. https://rairfoundation.com/erased-history-lessons-from-mao-zedongs-great-proletarian-cultural-revolution/

    M The Irony here is that it will make no difference as the indoctrinated hordes already see all of this as well as anything like it(Stalin’s murders) as disinformation. But we can only try.
    Even my daughter, ill but should know better, is showing woke signs despite the barrage of common sense and truth here. She is in that age group most targeted by the liars and it is disgusting to see. BTW we still have a copy of Mao’s Little Red Book thanks to my family. I recommend the site as the images and video tell much more.

    Erased History: Lessons from Mao Zedong’s ‘Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution’
    The Cultural Revolution was about purging non-communists.

    “At the beginning of the Cultural Revolution in 1966, young Red Guards went from house to house, seeking to eradicate all vestiges of what they called “the four ‘olds’ “–old ideas, old customs, old culture and old habits. Nothing better exemplified the four olds than books.” – Jim Mann of the Los Angeles Times, 1985

    There are unmistakable parallels from Mao Zedong’s “Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution” and Marxist movements today across the West. The Cultural Revolution started with book-burning and quickly turned into tearing down statues and changing the names of places and “especially street names.” Then, the Red Guards would drag “enemies” out of their homes and publicly shame them during “struggle sessions.” Finally, the Red Guards would go from house to house, confiscating property and sometimes torturing and killing the people they considered to be against the communist revolution.

    The Cultural Revolution was about purging non-communists. The effort came after forced collectivization during the “Great Leap Forward” from 1958 – 1962 led to massive famine “that cost more than 40 million lives.” In the wake of the horrific Great Leap Forward, Mao Zedong had to destroy those who started to shift from communist thought. On August 8, 1966, the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) explained:

    “Although the bourgeoisie has been overthrown, it is still trying to use the old ideas, culture, customs and habits of the exploiting classes to corrupt the masses, capture their minds and endeavour to stage a come-back.”

    In order to cling to power, the CCP explained that their objective:

    “…is to struggle against and crush those persons in authority who are taking the capitalist road, to criticize and repudiate the reactionary bourgeois academic ‘authorities’ and the ideology of the bourgeoisie and all other exploiting classes and to transform education, literature and art and all other parts of the superstructure that do not correspond to the socialist economic base, so as to facilitate the consolidation and development of the socialist system.”

    Mao had to suppress opposition, as all communists must to keep power after it is made clear that their disastrous policies wreak havoc on citizens. Mao’s Cultural Revolution claimed the lives of 7.73 million innocent human beings and spanned from May 16, 1966 until Mao Zedong’s death on September 9, 1976. Mao “unleashed the [Cultural Revolution] movement by urging young people to rise up against their parents and teachers”.

    The feared Red Guards, who oversaw the vast destruction during that evil period in China, consisted of militant high school and university students who were tasked with “eliminating all remnants of the old culture in China” and “purging” party leaders deemed “insufficiently revolutionary.” The Red Guards were simply heavily indoctrinated teens used by Mao “to enforce communism by removing capitalist, traditional and cultural elements from society” and are reminiscent of Hitler’s Brown Shirts in Germany and Antifa in America and across the West today.

    Citizens were only allowed to read from “The Little Red Book,” or “Quotations from Chairman Mao Zedong” and other limited communist propaganda. According to the BBC, “[T]he Ministry of Culture aimed to distribute a copy to every Chinese citizen and hundreds of new printing houses were built in order to achieve this.”

    Burning Books and Tearing down Statues during the Cultural Revolution
    During that reign of terror, nobody was safe from the Red Guards, who could, without warning or evidence, target anyone as being an enemy of Mao and drag you to a “struggle session,” where you would be humiliated and even tortured and killed for hours on end in front of audiences that came to witness the spectacle and who delighted in the mob’s rage. Or, they could just torture people in their homes.

    Very little about that period is documented and today’s Chinese Communist Party strategically works to convince citizens that times have gotten much better since the time of the Red Guards. As communists do, they have attempted to erase the brutal era from history and maintain strict controls of any reminiscences from that period or of the great famine.

    Many of the surviving photos of the Cultural Revolution were taken by CCP-Approved photographer Li Zhensheng who painstakingly maintained a secret stash of negatives, carefully documented with time, names, and locations and stored under the floorboards of his home until he could smuggle them to the United States. Li Zhensheng passed away just last month at the age of 79. His photographs are essential to understanding the brutality of the Cultural Revolution.

    • “…Mao had to suppress opposition, as all communists must to keep power after it is made clear that their disastrous policies wreak havoc on citizens…”.

      This is the real danger. We can dismiss their nonsense, but it is when they double and triple down for self-preservation sake that it becomes dangerous. Exposed to their own lies by the people and they will become deadly.

  4. https://caldronpool.com/push-to-criminalize-prayer/
    M Just discovered this site and along with my old friend: https://sheikyermami.com/
    have added it my my daily round

    M Strange that, as usual, islam is ignored. It is like asking for a ban on rabbits because of their “potential” for violence while ignoring the circling wolves. You cannot make this garbage up, the lunatics really are trying to run the planet. However IMO any “therapy” designed to change homosexuals to hetero’s is both medically and ethically wrong. So I must agree with that point.
    However I thought that “conversion therapy” was voluntary even in airstrip one. Anyone know?

    Leading LGBT activist in the UK wants the government to include a ban on “gentle non-coercive prayer” in legislation prohibiting conversion therapy.

    Jayne Ozanne, a prominent LGBT campaigner, described all prayer as dangerous and harmful if offered with the intent to change an individual’s sexuality or ‘gender identity.’

    Ozanne’s comments follow Bishop David Walker’s remarks supporting a ‘gay conversion’ ban, in which he said faith leaders should be punished if they have harmed someone through conversion attempts.

    “Where activity has harmed someone, the person who has caused the harm should face prosecution,” the Bishop of Manchester told The Guardian.

    Walker said he was not referring to “gentle, non-coercive prayer, but where there is a level of power imbalance and a level of force.”

    Ozanne said she was grateful for Walker’s support for a ban, but claimed all prayer for the purpose of conversion should be banned.

    “I’m very grateful to Bishop David for his clear support for a ban, although I would strongly refute that ‘gentle non-coercive prayer’ should be allowed,” Ozanne said.

    “All prayer that seeks to change or suppress someone’s innate sexuality or gender identity is deeply damaging and causes immeasurable harm, as it comes from a place – no matter how well-meaning – that says who you are is unacceptable and wrong.”

    All conversion “therapy” was coercive, she added. “We know that this occurs in numerous Church of England churches and many other faith settings – indeed there are evangelical organisations that openly advocate it. This must stop before more lives are ruined and sadly even lost.”

    The Christian Institute penned a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying it is ‘alarmed’ by this latest threat to prayer, warning it would violate the human rights of Christians.

    • The actual target of all that is going on is to eliminate all God’s people. These have been stepping stones that we are going through. Anything that is Biblical is not allowed. If you use that as a lens you will see what is going on. You need to know what the bible says to be aware of it. KJV is the only one that is not distorted by the Jesuits. (Society of Jesus). The New KJV is one of the worst I believe. That title of theirs make you think they are for Jesus. Actually they are against Jesus in every way. I think it was Vlad that has shown us here how the commies use phrases or name of a group that sound like they are a good cause but what the group actually stands for is the opposite of their name. Well the Jesuits are the the creator of communism, they are the experts on it, and they were created to destroy Protestantism. Everything about Rome is against God in every way, always has been. This pope is repeating the exact same language as the ones before him. Exact same. Since at least the1800’s. The Jesuit leader right now calls this Pope a Vatican 2 pope.

    • While I see his point and can agree, to a degree, he is too keen to push the supposed immunization against CV19 on people when there are quite successful treatments. Not impressed! Mind you, the state governments are only as good as their advisors who are public service bureaucrats all ALP supporters and nicely ensconced in well paid sinecures and have to murder someone to be sacked, but surely the non socialist NSW premier can see bull dust when it falls?
      I think that stupidity is the real pandemic.

  6. Biden tells Americans they would need nukes and F-15s to oppose the federal government – Liberty Unyielding

    Biden tells Americans they would need nukes and F-15s to oppose the federal government

    High noon. C-SPAN video

    This is a weird pattern that crops up now and then with Democrats. In an address on Wednesday, President Joe Biden swiped at the armed-citizen principle by implying – apparently – that being armed with rifles, pistols, and shotguns doesn’t enable the people to effectively oppose the government.

    To effectively oppose the government, Biden suggested, the people would need nuclear weapons and F-15s.

    Latest: VIDEO: Mazie Hirono attempted to debate Ted Cruz on originalism. It did not go well

    The extreme vagueness of everything except the terms “F-15s” and “nuclear weapons” has allowed all commentators on this silly speech to cast it according to their own interpretations. Some heard in it a reference to insurrection, and the impossibility of effective insurrection if the insurrectionists don’t have the weapons of long-range military combat. (Biden could have added that if, by some bizarre working of cosmic torsion, federal troops were fighting citizens in pitched military battle, the private citizens would first need fully automatic small arms — weapons of war — which the federal troops have but the citizens don’t.)

    https://libertyunyielding.com/2021/06/24/biden-tells-americans-they-would-need-nukes-and-f-15s-to-oppose-the-federal-government/

    (Pay close attention to this one, she is right on all points just as Biden is wrong. She doesn’t go into the Asymmetric war that has been successfully fought against several Dictatorships.

    Having said that the main point that Biden was trying to make and failed to make is that 1) he and the other leftists think that the US military is filled with organic robots that will obey all orders blindly. 2) That we the People don’t have any Rights, all are privileges that the Government grand and can take away when it feels like doing so. The first point is meant to terrorize the citizens and make them fear out own military. The second point is why the schools no longer teach the facts of history and why there are attacks on Religions in general and Christianity in particular. The rights protected by the Bill of Rights and the 10th Amendment are Divine or Natural rights, if there is no Deity there is no Divine/Natural rights and the Government can do what it wants. Welcome to the Communist Nations of the Western World.)

      President Joe Biden faced intense backlash online following remarks that he made during a press conference on Wednesday about how Americans who own firearms to defend against tyranny would need to own advanced military-grade technology to take on the U.S. government.

      “The Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own,” Biden said. “You couldn’t buy a cannon. [Those who] say the blood of the, the blood of patriots, you know, and all this stuff about how we’re going to have to move against the government.”

      “Well, the tree of liberty is not [watered with] the blood of patriots, what’s happened is that there never been, if you want, if you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons,” Biden continued. “The point is that there’s always been the ability to limit, rationally limit, the type of weapon that can be owned, and who can own it.”

    NATO exercise Sea Breeze, in the Black Sea, not a breeze so far

    NATO warships steam in formation in Sea Breeze 2020. NATO channel video, YouTube

    NATO exercise Sea Breeze, held annually in the Black Sea, isn’t going quite as expected (it technically hasn’t started yet). This will be kept tight and focused tonight, as there’s no time to do more with it. But three events have been of particular interest so far.

    Sea Breeze 2021, according to the press releases, will run from 28 June to 10 July and includes the participation of 32 nations. There being not nearly so many littoral nations fronting the Black Sea, that’s a lot of nations converging on the enclosed water feature, even though only some of them, representing NATO navies, actually have ships and maritime aircraft inside the Black Sea. The live participants are gathering in the Black Sea this week.

    Two days ago, OSINT analyst H.I. Sutton had a report at the U.S. Naval Institute (USNI) website disclosing that someone had apparently spoofed the automated position reporting systems (AIS) of two NATO warships, destroyer HMS Defender (D36) and the Dutch frigate HNLMS Evertsen (F805; you’ll see variations of the national designation of the latter, but it’s “HNLMS,” standing for His Netherlands Majesty’s Ship). This extraordinary cyber exploit made it appear that on 19 June, the two ships had approached the Crimean port of Sevastopol, where Russia has a naval base, seeming to come within “Crimean” territorial waters; i.e., within two miles of the harbor entrance.

    • More on the warm-up to Op Sea Breeze:
      Russian and British forces square off in the Black Sea

      …Whatever happened, it was out of the ordinary. Western countries routinely decry Russia’s occupation and annexation of Crimea – most recently at a NATO summit on June 14th. On June 23rd the European Union extended economic sanctions on Russia stemming from the annexation for an eighth successive year.

      But neither America nor any other member of NATO is thought to have gone as far as sailing a warship with a journalist aboard through Crimea’s waters to flout Russia’s claims….

      Britain’s move was bold, but risky. Russia has built up a large military presence in Crimea, including advanced missile, air-defence and jamming systems. HMS Defender was a considerable distance from HMS Queen Elizabeth, the aircraft-carrier that she escorts, currently on the other side of the Bosporus in the Mediterranean. It helps that an American intelligence-gathering plane was watching from above….

    • The Dems will go after the Generation skipping Trusts and the Foundations last, these are how the politicians and their big donors pass their money down to the kids and Grandkids.

      Another thing the Dems will be going for are the large family businesses where the corporation owns itself, the family members get the dividends and voting rights on X number of stocks but the stock is owned by the corporation. The King Ranch in Texas springs to mind as do the Orschlen Family businesses and the Stamper Family (Conagra and Banquet Foods) the disadvantage of this is that the corporate income is taxed and then you pay taxes on the dividends. The big advantage is that you are avoiding the Death Tax and still passing things down to the future generations.

  8. Deprogramming of January 6 Defendants Is Underway

    June 23, 2021

    “My lawyer has given me names of books and movies to help me see what life is like for others in our country. I’ve learned that even though we live in a wonderful country things still need to improve. People of all colors should feel as safe as I do to walk down the street.”

    That passage is part book report, part white privilege mea culpa submitted to a federal court this month by Anna Morgan-Lloyd, one of the more than 500 Americans arrested for her involvement in the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. The 49-year-old grandmother of five from southern Indiana was charged with four counts of trespassing and disorderly conduct even though she walked through an open door and was inside the building for about five minutes. She was ratted out to the FBI by a county worker who saw her January 6 posts on Facebook.

    On Wednesday, Lloyd, who has a clean criminal record, pleaded guilty to one count of “parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building”—but not before she consented to undergo a reeducation exercise at the urging of her court-appointed lawyer. (Like many January 6 defendants, Lloyd does not have the means to hire a private attorney.)

      • Don’t listen to the WHO now saying children and young adults should not get the vaccine, listen to me, I have investments in the snake oil.

    • the gateway pundit – “Yes, My Concerns Are That the Government Is Not Being Transparent about Those Risks” – mRNA Vaccine Inventor Speaks Out on Vaccine Concerns for Young People (VIDEO)

      mRNA vaccine inventor Dr. Robert Malone joined Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night after pro-CCP YouTube deleted his video on the dangers and risks of the mRNA vaccine that the US government is currently promoting to children.

      The WHO now says that children should not take the vaccine.

      This interview took place on the same day that the CDC admitted that doctors were seeing more cases of rare heart inflammation with young adults after they receive the COVID vaccine.

      Right off the bat Dr. Malone told Tucker Carlson that he is concerned about the risk of these treatments.

      Tucker Carlson: YouTube took it down. They did this even though Dr. Malone may be the most qualified person on Planet Earth to discuss this subject. Why? Because he helped create the mRNA technology behind the COVID vaccine. We think he has a right to speak… In a way that’s accessible to non-scientists, do you have concerns about these vaccines for people who aren’t at great risk?

      Dr. Robert Malone: Yes, I think my concerns are the government is not being transparent with us about what those risks are.

      And so I’m of the opinion that people have the right to decide whether to accept vaccine or not especially since these are experimental vaccines.

      This is a fundamental right having to do with clinical research ethics.

      So my concern is I know that there are risks but we don’t have access to the data and the data having been captured rigorously enough so that we can accurately access those risks.

      And therefore for folks like your audience, you and me, we don’t really have the information that we need to make a reasonable decision.

      When asked about whether college-aged young adults should take the vaccine, Dr. Robert Malone replied:

      Dr. Robert Malone: So I have a bias that the benefits probably don’t outway the risks in that cohort.

      But unfortunately, the risk-benefit analysis is not being done…

      Certainly I can say the risk-benefit of those 18 and below doesn’t justify vaccines.

      And there’s a pretty good chance that it doesn’t justify vaccinations in these very young adults.

      ABSTRACT

      Many countries introduced the requirement to wear masks in public spaces for containing SARS-CoV-2 making it commonplace in 2020.

      Up until now, there has been no comprehensive investigation as to the adverse health effects masks can cause.

      The aim was to find, test, evaluate and compile scientifically proven related side effects of wearing masks.

      For a quantitative evaluation, 44 mostly experimental studies were referenced, and for a substantive evaluation, 65 publications were found.

      The literature revealed relevant adverse effects of masks in numerous disciplines.

      In this paper, we refer to the psychological and physical deterioration as well as multiple symptoms described because of their consistent, recurrent and uniform presentation from different disciplines as a Mask-Induced Exhaustion Syndrome (MIES).

      We objectified evaluation evidenced changes in respiratory physiology of mask wearers with significant correlation of O2 drop and fatigue (p < 0.05), a clustered co-occurrence of respiratory impairment and O2 drop (67%), N95 mask and CO2 rise (82%), N95 mask and O2 drop (72%), N95 mask and headache (60%), respiratory impairment and temperature rise (88%), but also temperature rise and moisture (100%) under the masks.

      Extended mask-wearing by the general population could lead to relevant effects and consequences in many medical fields.

    Bruce Thornton is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

    Even conservative commentators who are not afflicted with terminal Trump Derangement Syndrome are compelled to drag Trump into their writing and criticize him in order to preempt any suspicion that their comments critical of progressives show support for the hated ex-president.

    This verbal preemptive cringe is a way for members of the bipartisan political guild to signal their virtue and assure progressives that they’re not one of those knuckle-dragging “deplorable” Trump supporters. In doing so, they remind Trump voters why they supported him in the first place: He cut through all the class-signaling politesse and specious “norms” the cognitive elite use to advertise their superiority.

    A good example can be found in a commentary from Lance Morrow in the Wall Street Journal. Much of the piece is a spot-on dissection of the progressive class-hatred of conservatives in general and Donald Trump’s supporters in particular. His portrait of these plutocrat progressives is worth quoting:

    Ever since Amazon created its own delivery service, the blue vests of its drivers and the dark blue trucks with the monopolistic giant’s arrow have become as ubiquitous as UPS brown or FedEx purple and orange on every street and highway in America. And with good reason.

    Amazon’s package volume is expected to surpass UPS and FedEx as a host of men and women in blue rush to deliver orders from Chinese third party sellers and drop shippers.

    Usually Amazon rips off customers, companies, and entire countries, but it doesn’t beat them. This time there was an exception as Itzel Ramirez, an Amazon driver in her twenties, was caught on video violently assaulting a 67-year-old woman who had asked about her package.

    There was a primary election Tuesday in New York City. But it could be weeks before the Big Apple’s 8 million residents learn who could become their next mayor.

    Though only a primary election, determining the winner of the Democratic contest is crucial, for in heavily Democratic New York, the winner of the primary will almost certainly defeat the Republican challenger to succeed Bill de Blasio (D) as mayor.
    What are the current results?

    Eric Adams, the Brooklyn borough president and former New York Police Department captain, commanded nearly a 10-point lead on Election Day following in-person voting and nine days of early voting. Maya Wiley, former counsel to de Blasio, was second, while Kathryn Garcia, former commissioner of the NYC Sanitation Department, trailed in third.

  15. Media Release – Leaping to Conclusions Without the Facts on the Indigenous Residential Schools Question

    Recent accounts of 215 indigenous children buried and forgotten in a cemetery on a residential school grounds in Kamloops are shocking. According to these accounts the cemetery was described as a mass grave (the term usually describing war crimes and massacres) of children who were neglected, abused and abandoned in the residential schools and buried in the cemetery to hide their deaths.

    However, the report of Dr. Scott Hamilton, Anthropology Department at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, who was retained by the National Centre Truth and Reconciliation to address this question, provides a different record.

    Dr Hamilton’s report can be found at: https://ehprnh2mwo3.exactdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/AAA-Hamilton-cemetery-FInal.pdf

    Dr. Hamilton’s report, based on available documentation, indicates that at least 3,213 children were reported to have died in residential school over a period of approximately 100 years

    Aboriginal Mortality

    According to Dr. Hamilton, communicable diseases were a primary cause of poor health and death for many Aboriginal people during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Tuberculosis, for which there was no cure, was rampant during this period. It affected Aboriginals more than other Canadians. Some children had likely contracted the disease prior to attending the school, but others were infected within the crowded, and poorly constructed residential school, built by the Department of Indian Affairs, not by the various churches.

    The Residential Schools

    Prior to 1883, Protestant and Catholic missionaries established churches and schools, and in some cases, hospitals to care for Aboriginals of all ages. These schools were intended to provide basic literacy to acculturate children to non-Aboriginal social and religious values, and to provide vocational training.

    It was not until 1883 that the Canadian Government under the Indian Affairs Department took control of and established larger institutions, known as the “residential school system”, for Indigenous children which were to provide both academic and industrial training, with an eye to aid their employment, independence and success within the increasingly dominant Euro-Canadian society. The 1920 amendment to the Indian Act gave to the Department of Indian Affairs the authority to send any school-age Indigenous children to a day or residential school. It was not until the early 1970s that the number of residential schools in operation began to decline sharply, and finally ceased operations in 1996.

    The Burial Policy of the Department of Indian Affairs

    Indian Affairs did not have a formal, written policy on burial of children from residential schools until 1958, which was fully 75 years after the rapid expansion of the residential school system. The practice of the Department was to not pay funeral expenses unless the cost of long-distance transportation was less than the cost of burying the student where he died. This is consistent with the practice that occurred throughout the whole history of the residential school system, namely, to keep burial costs low which discouraged sending bodies of deceased students back to their home communities.

    The most cost-effective way of doing this was to undertake burial in a cemetery on school grounds. Such cemeteries often contained not only the bodies of students, but also those of teachers, their relatives, and religious personnel in the schools who had died while working there. Over time, the wooden crosses marking the graves deteriorated, as did the fencing surrounding these cemeteries. Another problem was the maintenance of these residential school cemeteries. Indian Affairs did not accept responsibility for maintaining them. This responsibility fell on the religious congregations which operated these schools with inadequate government funding. Another problem was that these residential school cemeteries were also sometimes used for burials of members of nearby municipalities, but the municipalities did not accept responsibility to maintain the cemeteries.

    Summary

    It seems that throughout the history of the Indian Residential Schools, there were financially driven procedures and barriers that prevented the return of deceased students for burial, and the maintenance of the cemeteries near the schools. The wooden markers on the graves disintegrated over time as did the fences surrounding the cemeteries which became heavily overgrown by forests. Over time this made it difficult to determine the parameters of the cemetery and to learn about the individuals buried within them. There is no evidence whatsoever of an intent to hide these graves. Further, there is no indication that the children buried in these long-forgotten cemeteries died of abuse or neglect.

    The story of the residential schools is heartbreaking from many perspectives. However, it is not reasonable, based on the facts on record, to accuse the Catholic Church and other faith organizations of neglect of the children or callous behaviour towards them that led to their death. If there is any fault, it lies with federal Indian Affairs which did not provide adequate funding for the residential schools, the children and the cemeteries.

    Democrats love to tell people about how we shouldn’t worry so much about the border.

    They claimed that former President Trump was a racist and a lunatic for trying to do the most basic and logical thing any leader could do: secure the borders of his country.

    Why?

    Mexico is a very dangerous country.

    Anybody who tells you different is either a liar, a fool or both. There is no room for opening up our borders and letting in millions of illegals without vetting; continuing to do so will lead to the end of this nation.

    The latest example of why comes from the border city of Reynosa in Mexico, just across the line from McAllen, Texas; here, a weekend cartel bloodbath took 15 innocent lives.

  20. NETHERLANDS – Hungary has no place in the EU with its anti-gay laws, says Rutte

    Prime minister Mark Rutte has said he would like to see Hungary expelled from the EU if it continues to go against EU values as it has with new legislation on homosexuality.

    If they refuse to withdraw the legislation, ‘then as far as I am concerned, then there is nothing left for them in the EU,’ he said ahead of Thursday’s European summit.

    Rutte was referring to Hungary’s controversial new laws which it says are to ban the promotion of homosexuality and gender realignment surgery to the under-18s, but in fact ally homosexuality with paedophilia.

    The EU has no powers to intervene in Hungary’s own national laws but can start legal proceedings, Rutte said. ‘This is such a fundamental point, that if we let that go, we are nothing more than a trading block and a currency,’ Rutte said.

    The gay-free zones in Poland are also an issue which needs to be tackled, he told reporters. ‘There are too many of these sort of issues emerging,’ he said. ‘I never thought that when I got this job (the premiership) 11 years ago, that we would be having these discussions about such fundamental values,’ he said.

    bloomberg – Dutch Leader Challenges Hungary to Leave EU Over LGBTQ Spat

    Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte challenged Viktor Orban to trigger the process of leaving the European Union as a spat over LGBTQ rights deepened the Hungarian premier’s isolation in the bloc.

    During a summit in Brussels on Thursday, Rutte asked why Orban doesn’t leave the EU if it doesn’t subscribe to its values, according to two diplomats familiar with the comments. Other countries joined the chorus lambasting Orban over a controversial law curtailing public discussion of LGBTQ issues.

    Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven told the leaders during the two-day meeting that his country’s taxpayers wouldn’t contribute funds to member states that don’t respect human rights, said one of the diplomats, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private.

    The furor comes after Hungary’s parliament approved legislation last week outlawing content for children that can be deemed to “promote homosexuality.” The bill, which pairs the LGBTQ community with pedophilia, extends a law adopted last year that effectively bans same-sex partners from adopting children and enshrines in the constitution that marriage is only between a man and a woman.

    During the talks, Orban complained that he was being attacked from all sides and that other leaders had misunderstood the law, according to diplomats briefed on the meeting. Orban said the legislation doesn’t target homosexuality and that he is ready to work with the European Commission over any possible infraction.

    Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi told Orban it is up to the commission to establish whether Hungary may have violated EU treaties, the diplomats said.

    The EU’s executive arm has triggered legal proceedings against the law, adding to signs that it will toughen its stance when assessing whether Hungary and regional ally Poland have descended into authoritarianism. Later this year, the commission may propose the freezing of payments from the bloc’s jointly financed stimulus program and common budget to the two countries, citing risks for the misallocation of funds due to the lack of democratic checks and balances.

    Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of the Netherlands: No place in EU for Hungary with anti-LGBT law

    • reuters – Russia warns Britain it will bomb ships next time

      LONDON, June 24 (Reuters) – Russia warned Britain on Thursday that it would bomb British naval vessels in the Black Sea if there were any further provocative actions by the British navy off the coast of Russia-annexed Crimea.

      Russia summoned the British ambassador in Moscow for a formal diplomatic scolding after the warship breached what the Kremlin says are its territorial waters but which Britain and most of the world say belong to Ukraine.

      Britain said Russia was giving an inaccurate account of the incident. No warning shots had been fired and no bombs had been dropped in the path of the Royal Navy destroyer Defender, it said.

      In Moscow, Russia summoned Ambassador Deborah Bronnert for a reprimand over what it said were Britain’s “dangerous” action in the Black Sea – while foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova accused London of “barefaced lies”.

      “We can appeal to common sense, demand respect for international law, and if that doesn’t work, we can bomb,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told Russian news agencies.

      Ryabkov, referring to Moscow’s version of events in which a Russian aircraft bombed the path of the British destroyer, said that in future bombs would be sent “not only in its path, but also on target.”

      The Black Sea, which Russia uses to project its power in the Mediterranean, has for centuries been a flashpoint between Russia and its competitors such as Turkey, France, Britain and the United States.

      Russia seized and annexed the Crimea peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and considers areas around its coast to be Russian waters. Western countries deem the Crimea to be part of Ukraine and reject Russia’s claim to the seas around it.

      Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the British warship, which was travelling from the Ukrainian port of Odessa to the Georgian port of Batumi, was acting in accordance with the law and had been in international waters.

      “These are Ukrainian waters and it was entirely right to use them to go from A to B,” Johnson said. British Defence Minister Ben Wallace accused Russian pilots of conducting unsafe aircraft manoeuvres 500 feet (152 m) above the warship.

      “The Royal Navy will always uphold international law and will not accept unlawful interference with innocent passage,” Wallace said.

      Under international law of the sea, innocent passage permits a vessel to pass through another state’s territorial waters so long as this does not affect its security.

      Britain disputed the Russian version of events, with Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab calling it “predictably inaccurate”.

      BLACK SEA DISPUTE

      During its 2008 war with Georgia, Russia bristled at U.S. warships operating in the Black Sea, and in April the United States cancelled the deployment of two warships to the area.

      Ties between London and Moscow have been on ice since the 2018 poisoning with a Soviet-developed nerve agent known as Novichok of ex-double agent Sergei Skripal, a mole who betrayed hundreds of Russian agents to Britain’s MI6 foreign spy service.

      The British destroyer visited the Ukrainian port of Odessa this week, where an agreement was signed for Britain to help upgrade Ukraine’s navy.

      Russia said it had ventured as far as 3 km (2 miles) into Russian waters near Cape Fiolent, a landmark on Crimea’s southern coast near the port of Sevastopol, headquarters of the Russian Navy’s Black Sea fleet.

      Britain’s BBC released footage from the ship showing a Russian coast guard warning that he would shoot if the British ship did not change course.

      “If you don’t change the course, I’ll fire,” a heavily accented Russian voice said in English to the British ship. The BBC said shots were fired and that as many as 20 Russian aircraft were “buzzing” the British ship.

      Britain said the shots were part of a Russian gunnery exercise. Russia released footage filmed from a Russian SU-24 bomber flying close to the British ship.

      “These aircraft posed no immediate threat to HMS Defender, but some of these manoeuvres were neither safe nor professional,” Britain’s Wallace said.
