Reader’s Links for August 9, 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. I remember stopping by a convenience store on my way to work and it being closed. “Open at 6 a.m.” the sign said. This was one of those 24/7 franchises. They never closed, but here we were at the start of the pandemic. It’s a little thing that hangs in my memory.

    The pandemic was the reason given for the new hours. This didn’t make sense for me then, but with time it’s become so perfectly clear with this little example; in the doldrums of the sleepy night, with the occasional night owl customer wandering in, death by flu bug was not going to happen. Establishing a training regime for population control was, and is, the real order of the day.

    The rubber truly meets the freedom road with the vaxx. To think otherwise now is to be played for a sucker, vaxxed or not. Smart people can make observations early on that may later prove prescient, but nothing compares to hindsight. Covid-19 was always about mentacide, and using virus fear to sell medical tyranny. Just ask Fuckhead Fauci.

    Do you really believe our elites will take an experimental drug if they have a chance for proper informed consent? These are not the kinds of people who stand in line for their injections or who suffer the indignities of commoners. Me and Thee are their favourite little words.

    Reports of accidental saline injections, along with reports of vaccine trial control groups getting wiped out by being injected with mRNA, obscure everything. Could it be that there is utility in saline errors? Could it be that exclusive people can receive their vaxx passports in this exceptional manner?

    I imagine the conversations go something like this:
    “Hey doc,” says former President Obiden.
    “Hello Barack, time for your shot.”
    “Sure thing. First tell me the dangers.” The doctor does so at length.
    “Ok. How about just giving me the saline, instead. You know, mistakenly.”
    “You know that’s not my way, Mr. President.”
    “I know, Bill, but just this time. –Easiest million you’ll ever make. Just between the two of us.”
    “A million, eh.”
    “Sure thing. Easy peazy. And my wife and kids too, of course.”
    “Wife and kids, eh. Two million.”
    “Holy smokes, doc. Sure. No problem. Times are tough all over, I guess….”

    Yes, as usual it is all as clear as mud, but when we are forced to extrapolate because of imposed confusion in an age of mentacide it’s not our damned fault. Extrapolate is what we do.

  2. No good deed goes unpunished:

    Catholic priest is ‘beaten to death’ in France ‘by Rwandan on bail while awaiting trial for arson attack that destroyed Nantes Cathedral last year’
    Emmanuel Abayisenga, 40, is said to have confessed to the murder of the priest
    Father Olivier Maire, clergyman in Saint-Laurent-sur-Sèvre, was killed in Nantes
    Sources: Early evidence suggested Abayisenga had ‘beaten his victim to death’
    Abayisenga, a devout Catholic, was staying with the Montfortian community
    The Rwandan refugee also previously confessed to being behind the fire that gutted the Gothic Nantes cathedral that horrified France on July 18, 2020

    A Rwandan refugee allegedly murdered a Roman Catholic priest in France today while on bail and awaiting trial for setting fire to Nantes Cathedral.
    Emmanuel Abayisenga, 40, is said to have made a full confession after killing 60-year-old Father Olivier Maire in Saint-Laurent-sur-Sèvre on Monday morning.
    The horrific crime immediately provoked outrage across France, with one politician saying ‘an illegal immigrant’ can ‘set fire to a Cathedral, not be expelled and then reoffend by murdering a priest’.
    Father Olivier had welcomed Abayisenga – a devout Catholic – into his community of missionaries in May when he was released from prison.
    ‘He was recently placed under judicial control, and went to live in Saint-Laurent-sur-Sèvre,’ said an investigating source.
    ‘He is said to have carried out the killing on Monday morning, before handing himself into police.
    ‘Early evidence suggests he beat his victim to death,’ the source added.

  3. Eight-year-old becomes youngest person charged with blasphemy in Pakistan
    Hindu boy faces possible death penalty after being accused of intentionally urinating in a madrassa library
    https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2021/aug/09/eight-year-old-becomes-youngest-person-charged-with-blasphemy-in-pakistan
    An eight-year-old Hindu boy is being held in protective police custody in east Pakistan after becoming the youngest person ever to be charged with blasphemy in the country.
    The boy’s family is in hiding and many of the Hindu community in the conservative district of Rahim Yar Khan, in Punjab, have fled their homes after a Muslim crowd attacked a Hindu temple after the boy’s release on bail last week. Troops were deployed to the area to quell any further unrest.
    On Saturday, 20 people were arrested in connection with the temple attack.
    The boy is accused of intentionally urinating on a carpet in the library of a madrassa, where religious books were kept, last month. Blasphemy charges can carry the death penalty.
    The Guardian knows the name of the boy and family members, but has chosen to protect their identities for their safety.
    Speaking from an undisclosed location, a member of the boy’s family told the Guardian: “He [the boy] is not even aware of such blasphemy issues and he has been falsely indulged in these matters. He still doesn’t understand what his crime was and why he was kept in jail for a week.
    “We have left our shops and work, the entire community is scared and we fear backlash. We don’t want to return to this area. We don’t see any concrete and meaningful action will be taken against the culprits or to safeguard the minorities living here.”
    Blasphemy charges filed against a child have shocked legal experts, who say the move is unprecedented. No one this young has ever been charged with blasphemy before in Pakistan.
    Blasphemy laws have been disproportionately used in the past against religious minorities in Pakistan. Although no blasphemy executions have been carried out in the country since the death penalty was introduced for the crime in 1986, suspects are often attacked and sometimes killed by mobs.
    Ramesh Kumar, a lawmaker and head of the Pakistan Hindu Council, said: “The attack on the temple and blasphemy allegations against the eight-year-old minor boy has really shocked me. More than a hundred homes of the Hindu community have been emptied due to fear of attack.”
    Kapil Dev, a human rights activist, said: “I demand charges against the boy are immediately dropped, and urge the government to provide security for the family and those forced to flee.”
    He added: “Attacks on Hindu temples have increased in the last few years showing an escalating level of extremism and fanaticism. The recent attacks seem to be a new wave of persecution of Hindus.”
    Footage circulating on social media appears to show an angry mob attacking and vandalising the temple with iron bars and sticks last week.
    Ahmad Nawaz, a spokesperson for the Rahim Yar Khan district police, said: “Police are hunting the attackers and police teams are conducting raids to arrest the culprits but there has been no arrest made yet.”
    Pakistan’s prime minister, Imran Khan, condemned the mob attack on Twitter and said he has ordered the provincial police chief to take action against anyone involved, including negligent police officers. He promised the government would restore the temple.

    India-China Faceoff: Ground Report From Indian Air Base At 13,500 ft – Nyoma Airstrip In Leh

  5. AS EXPECTED and very timely, the UNITED NATIONS is now adding a new fear factor, aka Code Red For Humanity.

    ** ‘Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide’: Devastating UN report finds extreme flooding, deadly wildfires and heatwaves from climate change are already plaguing the US as the world is expected to warm by 2.7F by 2040 **

    Scientists with the United Nations have been sounding the alarm on humans fueling dangerous greenhouses gasses for the past 30 years, but on Monday, 234 experts issued the most devastating assessment yet that reveals the US is headed for disaster.

    Scientists expect temperatures to rise by 2.7F above pre-industrial levels up to decade earlier than expected

    It had been thought it would happen between 2030 and 2052 but it is now expected between now and 2040

    Bombshell United Nations report comes as record heatwaves, wildfires and floods hit countries around world

    The US is experiencing such events this year with more than 3,000 wildfires , over $8B in flood damages and more than 3,000 people killed in heatwaves

    It is ‘unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, oceans and land,’ the report has warned

    Report: ‘Virtually certain’ heatwaves ‘have become more frequent and more intense across most land regions’

    A rise in sea levels approaching 6ft by the end of this century ‘cannot be ruled out’, the authors said

    They also warned the Arctic is likely to be ‘practically sea ice-free’ in September at least once before 2050

    But some experts say still hope cuts in emissions of greenhouse gases could stabilize rising temperatures

    Dozens of anti-vaccine protesters attempted to storm the BBC’s west London studios this afternoon prompting violent clashes with police – with at least one making it inside.

    The protest, organised by anti-lockdown group Official Voice, is believed to have been directed against vaccine passports and jabs for children.

  7. Pentagon to require COVID-19 vaccination for all U.S. military members by Sept. 15

    The decision will add the COVID-19 vaccine to a list of other inoculations that service members are already required to get

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon will require members of the U.S. military to get the COVID-19 vaccine by Sept. 15, according to a memo obtained by The Associated Press. That deadline could be pushed up if the vaccine receives final FDA approval or infection rates continue to rise.

    “I will seek the president’s approval to make the vaccines mandatory no later than mid-September, or immediately upon” licensure by the Food and Drug Administration “whichever comes first,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin says in the memo to troops, warning them to prepare for the requirement. “I will not hesitate to act sooner or recommend a different course to the President if l feel the need to do so.”

    The memo is expected to go out Monday.

    Austin’s decision comes a bit more than a week after President Joe Biden told defense officials to develop a plan requiring troops to get shots as part of a broader campaign to increase vaccinations in the federal workforce. It reflects similar decisions by governments and companies around the world, as nations struggle with the highly contagious delta variant that has sent new U.S. cases, hospitalizations and deaths surging to heights not see since the peaks last winter.

    Austin said in his memo says that the military services will have the next few weeks to prepare, determine how many vaccines they need, and how this mandate will be implemented. The additional time, however, also is a nod to the bitter political divisiveness over the vaccine and the knowledge that making it mandatory will likely trigger opposition from vaccine opponents across the state and federal governments, Congress and the American population.

    It also provides time for the FDA to give final approval to the Pfizer vaccine, which is expected early next month. Without that formal approval, Austin would need a waiver from Biden to make the shots mandatory.

    Troops often live and work closely together in barracks and on ships, increasing the risks of rapid spreading. And any large outbreak of the virus in the military could affect America’s ability to defend itself in any national security crisis.

    The decision will add the COVID-19 vaccine to a list of other inoculations that service members are already required to get. Depending on their location around the world, service members can get as many as 17 different vaccines.

    Austin’s memo also said that in the meantime, the Pentagon will comply with Biden’s order for additional restrictions on any federal personnel who have not been vaccinated. Those restrictions will include wearing masks, social distancing and travel limits.

    According to the Pentagon, more than 1 million troops are fully vaccinated and another 237,000 have received one shot. But the military services vary widely in their vaccination rates.

  8. Some Things Never Change: What the Second Amendment Says and What it Actually Means – The Truth About Guns
    14-17 minutes

    By Sheldon Richman

    “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

    —Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

    Is this sentence so hard to understand? Apparently so. Even some of its defenders don’t like how it is worded because it allegedly breeds misunderstanding.

    But the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights is indeed a well-crafted sentence. By that, I mean that its syntax permits only one reasonable interpretation of the authors’ meaning, namely, that the people’s individual right to be armed ought to be respected and that the resulting armed populace will be secure against tyranny, invasion, and crime. Someone completely ignorant of the 18th-century American political debates but familiar with the English language should be able to make out the meaning easily.

    My concern is not to demonstrate that what the amendment says is good policy, only that it says what it says. No other fair reading is possible.

    Australia is a Penal Colony Once More – Frontpagemag

    Only this time the inmates are Australians themselves.

    Australia is in a very dark place.

    The army has been drafted in to force people to stay in their homes, going door-to-door to check for compliance. Police helicopters circle overhead, threatening anyone in parks or public spaces with police action and fines; there is genuine fear over being caught outside without a permissible excuse.

    No one is allowed more than 5 kilometers from their home address, only one person per household may leave to purchase supplies once a day, and Sydney-siders are not permitted to speak to friends or stop to browse; they may only get what they need and return home.

    And this is all for 239 cases from 110,000 tests.

  10. Communist Lawyers Sue to Create a Secessionist Monarchy in Hawaii – Frontpagemag

    When being progressive means fighting to restore slavery and human sacrifice.

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

    Secessionism is in the political eye of the beholder. Propose the restoration of the Republic of Texas and you’re a dangerous secessionist, but open fire on Congress in the name of Puerto Rico’s independence and you’re a hero of social justice. Then there’s Hawaiian secessionism.

    The restoration of the Hawaiian monarchy seems both secessionist and anti-democratic which hasn’t stopped the quixotic project from winning the support of the anti-American Left.

    Virginians for Safe Communities launch effort to put ‘pro-criminal prosecutors on trial’

    As homicides rise in Virginia’s northern suburbs, voters will have the opportunity to put three liberal prosecutors backed by billionaire Democratic megadonor George Soros on trial.

    A new Virginia nonprofit, Virginians for Safe Communities, is launching a campaign to recall Fairfax County’s Steve Descano, Loudoun County’s Buta Biberaj, and Arlington County’s Parisa Dehghani-Tafti from their respective offices, the group announced in a Monday statement. The progressive attorneys took office in January 2020 after Soros spent more than $2 million supporting their campaigns. All three have since implemented lenient law enforcement policies, decisions that have coincided with a rise in crime.

    Descano, for example, said in December that his office will stop seeking cash bail, which he called “unjust” and “racially biased.” In the months following the decision, homicides in Fairfax County more than doubled the total seen during the same time period in 2020. In Dehghani-Tafti’s Arlington, meanwhile, felony aggravated assaults rose 40 percent last year. And in Loudoun, Biberaj has faced criticism for dismissing hundreds of domestic violence cases.

    (Richard: This is a win win for Soros, the Prosecutors free criminals which causes chaos and division, the honest people start a recall on the prosecutors and the cities/counties/states become more divided.)

  12. THE BABBITT EMAILS: Chief Medical Examiner Submitted Urgent Request to Cremate Ashli Babbitt Two Days after Gaining Custody of Her Body – Geller Report News

    New Documents Reveal the DC Office of the Chief Medical Examiner Submitted a Request to Cremate Ashli Babbitt Two Days after Gaining Custody of Her Body

    Judicial Watch just received the first public documents about the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt.

    We obtained 1160 pages of documents from Washington, DC’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) that document new details of the investigation of the homicide of the Air Force veteran and San Diego native. These new documents reveal that OCME submitted a request for permission to cremate Babbitt only two days after taking custody of her body and that, due to the “high profile nature” of Babbitt’s case, Deputy Chief Medical Examiner Francisco Diaz requested that a secure electronic file with limited access be created for Babbitt’s records.

    Additionally, Babbitt’s fingerprints were emailed to a person supposedly working for the DC government, which resulted in Microsoft “undeliverable” messages written in Chinese characters being returned.

      As health officials work to get more people vaccinated against COVID-19, there’s hope that convenient pop-up clinics could help some decide to get the shot.

    • Deutsche Pravda – Mandatory vaccinations: Human rights vs. public health?

      Many American companies, from Google to CNN and United Airlines have made the vaccine compulsory for staff.

      The alternative – look for a new job.

      In Germany, free corona-virus tests are coming to an end.

      Unvaccinated Germans will have to foot the bill, if they want to eat out or go shopping.

      In France, a quarter-million people protested against tightening rules against the unvaccinated.

      They say liberty is at stake.

      It’s their body their choice.

      The French government is trying to speed up its vaccination drive, by making life for the non-vaccinated more complicated.

      Access to trains, domestic flights and restaurants and bars will only be allowed for the fully vaccinated, recently recovered or negatively tested.
