Reader’s Links for August 8, 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.

        • Very quiet. Doing yard work, house work, house plants and my annuals outside, and checking into this site and a few others. I just don’t feel like talking.

          There’s so much info, overload takes over.

          But I’m so grateful to you for your Tucker Carlson daily reports. Keep up the great work. Bedtime.

  1. NASDAQ GOING WOKE

    ** SEC approves Nasdaq’s new diversity requirements for public company boards **

    Nasdaq is one step closer to ushering in a new era of corporate board diversity and transparency following a landmark decision from U.S. financial regulators.

    For eight months, the New York exchange operator has been seeking the Securities and Exchange Commission’s sign-off on a plan to require many of its listed companies to have at least one or two “diverse” board members, or explain in writing why they do not. Nasdaq has also been pushing to be able to require its issuers to disclose the diversity breakdown of their boards.

    Huh? Vaccine testers eliminated their clinical trial control groups – by vaxxing them

    Pixabay

    [Ed. – As sundance says, this is nuts. It kills the trial: there’s no control group outcome to compare with the vaccine outcome over time. This isn’t something reported only by conservative media, and certainly not a dubious conspiracy-theory claim. NPR got the confirmation of it from the testing entities for Pfizer and Moderna.]

    The Moderna and Pfizer vaccine tests were conducted, as customary, with a control group; a group within the trial who were given a placebo and not the test vaccine. However, during the trial -and after the untested vaccines were given emergency use authorization- the vaccine companies conducting the trial decided to break protocol and notify the control group they were not vaccinated. Almost all the control group were then given the vaccine.

    Purposefully dissolving the placebo group violates the scientific purpose to test whether the vaccine has any efficacy; any actual benefit and/or safety issues. Without a control group there is nothing to compare the vaccinated group against. According to NPR, the doctors lost the control group in the Johnson County Clinicial Trial (Lexena, Kansas) on purpose:

    Last Tuesday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio proudly announced that the city would become the nation’s first to issue a COVID passport. Called a “Key to NYC Pass,” the app would be required of workers and customers to gain access to indoor seating at restaurants, gyms, movie houses, theaters, and more.

  4. ELECTRIC CARS

    ** RICHARD NORTH: The problem isn’t how far electric cars will travel… it’s where the electricity will come from **

    The most serious is the simple fact that electric cars must be recharged from the mains.

    They will vastly increase the amount of electricity Britain uses. And generating electricity will remain a dirty, inefficient, highly polluting business for decades to come.

    This is where the green dream comes crashing to earth. A 2030 deadline is beyond a pipedream, it is complete fantasy.

    As things stand, Britain is already on the verge of power cuts.

    The hope, of course, is that all these electric cars and vans would be powered by sources of renewable energy, such as wind or solar, or nuclear reactors. Indeed, if that was the case, electric motoring would be largely emissions-free.

    … But wind is an intermittent source of energy, and it doesn’t take a genius to work out that solar panels produce no power when it is dark and little on cloudy days.

    So, wind and sun can never be the complete answer…

      Juliette Kayyem, professor at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary, says vaccine requirements should apply to airline passengers as well.

      Federal member for Mallee Dr Anne Webster has written to Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, calling for him to implement a ring of steel around Melbourne so the regions can be freed from lockdown.

      “Nobody’s denying the seriousness of the Delta strain, however, what we need is a ring of steel,” she told Sky News Australia.

      “I noted that the premier was quite committed to the NSW premier to be able to do that around Sydney but what we need is for him to do it around Melbourne.

      “Regions should be able to get on with our lives. If there were tracing in sewage … then certainly testing and contact needs to occur in the towns and only when there are cases should localised towns be locked down.”

    EXCLUSIVE: CDC Director Walensky’s Husband Received $5 Million in HHS Grants – and That’s Just the Start of It

    7-9 minutes

    When it comes to the swamp that has become D.C., nothing should surprise anyone anymore, especially when it comes to officials within the government using resources to personally enrich themselves or failing to disclose when their families stand to benefit from their governmental “service.” While the Left was consistently worried about Trump and his family using the Presidency to enrich themselves, they seem much less concerned about Hunter Biden’s travels on the American taxpayer dime to peddle his father’s influence – or by his current career/money-laundering scheme as an “artist.”

    New information provided exclusively to RedState by syndicated radio talk show host Howie Carr shows that Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky is finding multiple ways to benefit from her new position. Walensky, who took over as director with Biden’s inauguration, is married to Loren D. Walensky, a renowned pediatric oncology researcher at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard. In October 2019 Loren Walensky became the scientific co-founder and a member of the Board of Directors of Lytica Therapeutics, “an early-stage biotechnology company working on an innovative platform for developing next-generation antimicrobials.” (LabCentral)
