Reader’s Links for October 17, 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. Religion aside, thank god for God. American Christians seem to be the primary driver of the great awakening. The ghost of Jim Crow says Trump doesn’t have to do much to make a comeback, because the narrators are losing their script. Start by admitting a few mistakes (like supporting the experimental injections), and announce that if you’re re-elected you’ll build a nice new prison to house some of the biggest criminals spun out of Nuremberg 2. And like Ben Ferencz did, make things quick. No drawn-out trials. After all, the flip side of the internet control we now have is that most everything is on the record. You know, he ordered Nazi liars to be taken and shot immediately. This man meant business.

    “…Those who oppose accountability are against rule of law…”.

  2. Turns out the murder of a british MP has an Ali quotient of 200%! The stabber’s name is Ali Harbi Ali (“harb” means war in arabic) and he’s a son to an ex-advisor of the PM of Somalia.

    Terror suspect’s father reveals he is ‘feeling very traumatised’ by his son’s arrest in Sir David Amess murder probe and it’s ‘not something I expected’
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10099767/amp/Terror-suspects-father-feeling-traumatised-Sir-David-Amess-murder-probe.html
    The suspect was widely reported as Ali Harbi Ali, a 25-year-old British national of Somali descent
    The Somalian father of the suspected terrorist alleged to have killed Conservative MP Sir David Amess in Friday’s horrific knife attack in Essex while meeting his constituents said he had been left ‘traumatised’ by the shock of his son being arrested for the crime.
    Harbi Ali Kullane, a former communications advisor to the Prime Minister of Somalia, spoke to The Sunday Times to confirm that his British-born son Ali Harbi Ali, 25, was in police custody following the stabbing at Sir David’s constituency surgery in Leigh-on-Sea.
    Speaking at his sister’s home in North London, Kullane told the paper that counter-terrorism police from Scotland Yard had visited him, adding: ‘I’m feeling very traumatised. It’s not something that I expected or ever dreamt of.’
    As police continued to question a 25-year-old British man of Somalian descent last night, security sources told The Mail on Sunday that the attacker had booked an appointment at Sir David’s surgery before allegedly stabbing the politician 17 times.
    Ali may have lived in Sir David’s Southend West constituency in the past, but his most recent residence is believed to be in London, where counter-terrorism officers have been carrying out searches at three addresses since Friday’s attack. The security services are providing assistance to Scotland Yard, which is leading the investigation.
    Last night, detectives were granted a warrant of further detention, allowing them to keep Ali in custody until next Friday, October 22.
    Police were photographed standing guard outside the North London council house where Ali lives. It is in a street of £2million three-storey townhouses where neighbours include broadcaster Giles Coren and, formerly, the late actor Roger Lloyd Pack, who played Trigger in Only Fools And Horses.
    Sir David, 69, who had been an MP since 1983, met the public every fortnight and advertised the details on his parliamentary website. Shortly before his killing, one Minister told the MoS that the Government feared a wave of fresh terror attacks as the country emerged from the Covid pandemic, due to an ‘epidemic’ of ‘bedroom radicals’ who spent lockdown hunched over computers plotting atrocities.
    Suspect Ali Harbi Ali lives on a sought-after North London street, which is also home to restaurant critic Giles Coren.
    The tree-lined road, where properties sell for around £2 million, was also previously home to the late Only Fools And Horses actor Roger Lloyd Pack, who lived there for 27 years until his death in 2014.
    Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, who yesterday laid a wreath for Sir David Amess at the scene of his murder in Leigh-on-Sea, lives just streets away in trendy Kentish Town.
    He is also the MP for the area where Ali lives with his father in their council-owned flat.
    The road, populated with Victorian terrace houses, most of which have three storeys, is described as ‘vibrant’ and ‘close knit’. It lies in the London Borough of Camden.
    Other high-profile names with addresses nearby include former Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger and the late Labour Minister Tessa Jowell.
    Ali – who had not been charged last night – is being questioned by police to establish whether he had links to radical Islamic groups. Whitehall insiders said Ali was not known to MI5, although he is thought to have been targeted by Prevent, the Government deradicalisation programme, some years ago.
    [..]
    Writing in today’s Mail on Sunday, Sir Lindsay made what will be construed as a thinly veiled reference to Labour Deputy Leader Angela Rayner describing Tories as ‘scum’. He says: ‘The quality of political discourse has to change. The conversation has to be kinder and based on respect… The hate, which drives these attacks, has to end.’

    • More about the neighborhood, less about the murderer and his daddy.

      “Advisor” to the Somali PM…
      I think Ilhan 0mar’s family was connected to that crimes-against-humanity Somali butcher.

    Preacher Anjem Choudary sparks fury by suggesting Sir David Amess may have been killed for being ‘pro-Israel’
    Hate preacher Anjem Choudary was condemned last night for suggesting David Amess may have been killed for being ‘pro-Israel’.
    The extremist said Sir David could also have been killed for being a member of the Tory Party, which has been in power for over a decade, during which time Britain has conducted military operations in Muslim countries.
    Choudary made the callous comments a day after the MP for Southend West was killed, leaving the nation reeling in shock and grief.
    Speaking from his council home in Ilford, East London, the 54-year-old said: ‘I am not sure about this particular MP’s views. The rumours are that he is pro-Israel, and he is part of the Conservative Party and they have been in power a long time, especially during the campaigns in Muslim countries such as Iraq and Syria and Afghanistan.’
    When asked how Mr Amess’s ‘pro-Israel’ stance would make him a target, Choudary replied: ‘Many people do [believe] that it is a terrorist state, and who would possibly be a friend of Israel after you see the carnage that they carried out against Muslims in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and continue to do with the appropriation of properties?’
    But Choudary, a trained lawyer, was quick to point out that he does not condone the killing of anyone, let alone an MP, in Britain.

    • Seems obvious. Elder Of Ziyon said the same thing on Friday.
      Choudary’s a goon. Letting him grab the spotlight for anything, ever – that’s irresponsible journalism.

      Kinky.

  4. Yet more on the murdered british MP. Some interesting info regarding possible motive:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10099515/amp/Killer-plotted-attack-Tory-MP-week.html
    Speculation of Iran link to MP’s murder
    Sir David Amess had been at an Iranian opposition rally, along with five other British MPs, in Paris in 2018.
    A Tehran diplomat had plotted to bomb the event, where regime dissident Maryam Rajavi had been a key target, The Sun reports.
    Diplomat Assadollah Assadi, 49, was jailed for 20 years for the plot which Belgian prosecutors said could have led to a ‘bloodbath’.
    The Iranian opposition had welcomed Sir David’s attendance, having called for the country’s president to be barred from Glasgow’s COP26 summit.
    A senior source said Sir David, who was Catholic, could have been a target due to his religion.
    [..]
    Friends fear Amess was targeted because he was a devout Catholic
    Friends and constituents of David Amess fear he was targeted because of his Catholic faith.
    The Conservative MP was a practising Roman Catholic who regularly attended his local St Peter’s Catholic Church.
    Tributes to the politician were led by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster. Yesterday, Douglas Cracknell, chairman of Leigh-on-Sea council, said Sir David’s devout faith was well-known to locals, who told The Mail on Sunday they feared it could have provided the motive for his murder. Mr Cracknell said: ‘Everyone knew about David’s Catholic faith – it was a big part of his character. He was a very generous man and was very helpful to us. This attacker may well have targeted him over his religion.’
    John Moore, 45, who knew Sir David as his local MP, said: ‘People here are saying it could have been linked to David’s Catholicism. He was such an advocate for his religion, so a terrorist would want to take him out, wouldn’t they? It’s just so sad. You couldn’t meet a nicer man. We all admired him so much.’
    During a homily at St Peter’s Catholic Church, Father Jeff Woolnough paid his respects to his late parishioner.
    He said: ‘Firstly we remember David’s great faith and as a Catholic his practising sense of that faith. What that means is sharing that faith with everyone he meets, no matter who they are. That’s by being him, showing that great accessibility to all faiths when we are under attack by everyone who doesn’t understand the position the Catholic Church takes in the world. We are particularly grateful for Sir David’s stance on pro-life. David chose life, even in death, because we now know he is alive in the Spirit.’

    • China is facing a major economic crisis that will shake the entire world before it is over, the problems are very bad and China has a shortage of ready case. This was shown when they sold part of their Strategic oil reserves, now they are increasing the number of daily incursions into Taiwanese air space and expanding their runways on the fighter bases near Taiwan.

      At the same time they are increasing the number of troops in the Ladakh region, are they getting ready to attack in one of those regions or are both distractions from something else?

        Demystifying China’s Role in Italy’s Port of Trieste

        The ghosts of Chinese control or even ownership have haunted the port since a March 2019 MoU. But those concerns have always been overblown.

        […]Summing up, then: The Port of Trieste was ready to welcome Chinese investments to advance parts of an existing development project. This initial project could have led to further potential future investments. However, if the question is whether the Port of Trieste was selling the port to the Chinese or giving it to them to manage, then evidence shows that the answer is no.

        In Italy ports are of public ownership, and hence cannot be sold. Even in those cases where long concessions for management are made, these can be rescinded if the counterpart does not comply with the agreement.

        Finally, any infrastructure investments in Italian ports must go through public bids, meaning that in spite of the agreement between the Port of Trieste and CCCC, the latter (by itself or as part of a consortium) would have had to make the best offer and win the public procurement. For example, despite the March 2019 MoU with the port of Genoa, CCCC did not actually win the public bid for the construction of the new breakwater dam….

  6. Illinois Democrats’ extreme gerrymandering inadvertently helps Republicans in 2022 midterm elections

    4-5 minutes

    Democrats in Illinois may have inadvertently helped Republicans after redrawing the state’s congressional districts.
    What is the background?

    Illinois Democrats unveiled last week their proposed congressional district map after congressional apportionment, based on the 2020 Census, resulted in Illinois losing one House seat.

    The proposed map is heavily gerrymandered, and was designed to give Democrats 14 House seats and Republicans just three House seats.
