Reader’s Links for August 28, 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.

    • I thought the creator of Geopolitics was Carl von Clausewitz. He wrote the tretise on it called, “On War”. Its very hard to find by the way although there are tons of phoney biographies and distracting nonsense about him. But his actual book, which is crazy important, is hard to find.

      DAILY MAIL – REVEALED: Secretary of State Antony Blinken ‘was on VACATION in the Hamptons just hours before Kabul fell’

      Many top Biden administration officials had gone on vacation on the weekend Kabul was captured by the Taliban

      The Blinken family has long had a presence in the East Hampton, with Blinken’s father, Donald, and uncle Robert owning side-by-side homes there

      With Kabul’s sudden collapse, officials rushed to evacuate Americans and their Afghan allies

      Roughly 300 Americans remain trapped in the country, Blinken reported Sunday
      Secretary of State Antony Blinken was reportedly vacationing in the Hamptons just hours before Kabul fell to the Taliban, despite warnings that the city was at risk.

      Blinken was one of several top-level Biden administration officials to have gone on vacation the Friday before the Afghan capitol was taken by the group on August 15.

      President Joe Biden himself was also on a trip away, and had arrived at the presidential retreat at Camp David that day.

      Blinken was already on vacation, according to a timeline of the events leading up to Kabul’s capture compiled by the Washington Post.

      The officials appeared to not be overly concerned with the situation on the ground, the outlet reported.

      Intelligence reports had estimated that Kabul was not likely to be at risk from the Taliban for several months – probably until at least late fall.

      But the Afghanistan military collapsed and the warlords swept through the country in a little over a week.

      sky news australia – ‘He’s finished’: Joe Biden ‘cannot survive’ fallout over Afghanistan withdrawal

      Joe Biden’s presidency is finished and it can’t survive the fallout over his administration’s “messy” withdrawal from Afghanistan, according to Curtin University Professor Joe Siracusa.

      Mr Siracusa said Joe Biden had an opportunity to withdraw from Afghanistan as “gracefully as he could” but it turned out to be quite “messy”.

      “And now he’s angered 60 per cent of the American people for not doing it properly, Mr Siracusa told Sky News Australia.

      “At the end of all this is that I think Biden has lost his credibility and I think the Biden presidency is finished – he can’t survive this.”

    Doctors in the United States are battling a rising rash of self-inflicted poisonings, as people infected with COVID-19 try to self-medicate against the virus.

    Touted as a miracle prevention and cure by far-right commentators and anti-vaxxers IVERMECTIN is a treatment for lice and tropical parasites – not viruses.

    And with doctors unwilling to prescribe it, people have rushed to farm supply stores to buy doses meant to de-worm livestock.

    Jackson Proskow reports on the latest unproven cure pushed by misinformation.

    • ctv -Blood clot risk higher for COVID-19 patients than after vaccination: study

      A new U.K. study suggests COVID-19 patients face a much higher risk of developing blood clots than those vaccinated with AstraZeneca or Pfizer shots.

    • bbc – Covid vaccine complications dwarfed by virus risks

      A major review of vaccines suggests the AstraZeneca jab does raise the risk of blood clots and another serious condition that can cause bleeding.

      But the study found the risk of such problems following a coronavirus infection was still much higher.

      The University of Oxford-led team also found an increased risk of stroke after the Pfizer jab – but again at a much lower rate than after infection.

      The team said it once again showed the “substantial” benefit of vaccination.

      People are desperately waiting for a 3rd jab.

      How did the government do it?

      Until now you couldn’t go almost anywhere abroad without 7-14 isolation days.

      The unapproved third vaccine dose is now “allowed” for everyone.

      From 1/10/2021, the Green pass would be valid ONLY for 6 months from the moment you received your last dose (2nd/3rd)


      You also have to isolate yourself for at least 7 days after coming from abroad

    • FRANCE – Coronavirus : l’Assurance maladie n’aurait enregistré la vaccination d’Emmanuel Macron qu’un mois et demi après son annonce

      Emmanuel Macron a-t-il vraiment été vacciné le 31 mai comme il l’avait affirmé ? Mediapart révèle aujourd’hui que l’Assurance maladie n’aurait enregistré l’injection du chef de l’État que le 13 juillet. Après avoir consulté les données du président de la République, le média d’investigation assure que le 13 juillet est bien la date enregistrée également pour le pass sanitaire d’Emmanuel Macron.

      Contacté par nos confrères, l’Élysée assure que cet écart de date résulte simplement d’une erreur humaine sur la saisie réalisée au moment de la génération tardive du certificat de vaccination. Mediapart précise d’ailleurs que la date de l’ordonnance prescrivant la vaccination du chef de l’État est bien le 31 mai, soit le jour de l’ouverture de la vaccination à tous les adultes. Une date qui correspond également à un délai de six mois après que lui et son épouse eurent été contaminés. Mais nos confrères précisent également que cette date peut être modifiée a posteriori dans le dossier de l’assurance maladie, contrairement à la date de vaccination.

      Ce qui intrigue aussi, c’est que le 13 juillet correspond au lendemain de l’allocution du Président qui annonçait notamment l’extension du pass sanitaire.

      Pour éliminer tout doute, Mediapart indique avoir demandé à l’Élysée de lui fournir le lot de vaccin Pfizer – dont la livraison peut ensuite être tracée – reçu par Emmanuel Macron ou la date de signature par l’agent vaccinateur. Sans succès pour le moment.
