Reader’s links for November 14, 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.

      “How will we survive this third attempt by Marxists to take over the world? They are calling this takeover the Great Reset — their words not mine! These are indeed the times that will test the strength of our character and our determination to retain freedom. The markets will be our greatest guide. We are adding a new pattern recognition module to the Premium Socrates level, whereby it reveals a complete search for a similar pattern in each market on the yearly level to report on the pattern that followed.”

    • “On a lark, he divided the span (two hundred and twenty-four years) by the number of panics (twenty-six) and found that, on average, there had been a panic every 8.6 years. As he read more, he began to suspect that 8.6 was a highly significant number.”

      “.In the early seventies, he became a trader and dealer in gold, and began compiling forecasts about commodities and currencies, which he sent out, via Telex, to clients around the world. Over time, the forecasting became his business. Much of it was rooted in cycles research. He travelled to London to the British Museum Newspaper Library and put together historical data on prices and exchange rates, down to the day. He constructed what he called an Economic Confidence Model, which he relied on to predict an upturn in the price of commodities in the early days of 1977. It worked, and he was amazed”.

      “Afterward, he was messing around with numbers and realized that 8.6 years was exactly three thousand one hundred and forty-one days: 3,141, the number pi times a thousand. The cycle mystery had deepened. If pi was essential to the physical world, perhaps it somehow governed the markets, or the fluctuations in human behavior and mood that manifested themselves in the markets.”

      “Why Martin Armstrong is a fool

      As we have proven dozens of times, Martin Armstrong is a pathological liar. This behavioral defect is a bad combination with a few other factors: His denial of basic undisputed facts of nature such as the most fundamental law in Physics: The law of conservation of energy. The ignorance of basic laws of Economics, such as Energy return on investment (EROI) and giving unsolicited economic advice clearly in conflict with it. Such as denying Global Warming and actively advising people for preparing for a new ice age. And downplaying the the Covid-19 pandemic against well-published expert knowledge as “just another flu”, resulting in financial losses of his Socrates clients.

  1. A poem for the Build Back Better Bastards

    The Oak Tree

    A mighty wind blew night and day
    It stole the oak tree’s leaves away
    Then snapped its bows and pulled its bark
    Until the oak tree was tired and stark
    But still the oak tree held its ground
    Well other trees fell all around
    The weary wind gave up and spoke,
    “How can you still be standing oak?”
    The oak tree said, “ I know that you
    Can break each branch of mine in two
    Carry every leaf away
    Shake my limbs, and make me sway.
    But I have roots stretched in the earth
    Growing stronger since my birth
    You’ll never touch them, for you see
    They are the deepest part of me.
    Until today, I wasn’t sure
    Of JUST HOW MUCH I COULD ENDURE
    BUT NOW I’VE FOUND, WITH THANKS TO YOU
    I’M STRONGER THAN I EVER KNEW.”

  3. Migrants Armed With Tear Gas and Laser Attack Polish forces as Border Warfare Between Poland and Belarus Escalates

    The military tension at the Belarus-Poland border escalated Friday, November 12 night. Belarusian troops destroyed part of the 120 miles of barbed wire fencing that separates the east European states. Footage released by Polish Border Force showed its troops blinded by lasers and strobe lights. DailyMail reports that Belarus armed the migrants with tear gas to attack the Polish forces once they crossed the border.
    The border tension was reported near the town of Czeremcha. Hundreds of migrants passed through this frontier in recent weeks. “Last night near Czeremcha, Belarusian soldiers began to destroy the temporary border by tearing up fence posts,” a spokesman for the Polish Border Force told DailyMailOnline. “Polish forces were blinded by laser beams and strobe light. Also, a group of about 100 migrants were to cross and Poland says Belarusians gave them tear gas, which was used against the Polish forces.”
    The soldiers were apparently following Belarusian dictator leader Alexander Lukashenko’s orders. The European Union has accused Lukashenko of using migrants as pawns to elicit a ‘hybrid attack’ by helping them across the border to destabilize the EU. Tensions have worsened at the Poland-Belarus border in recent weeks. The EU has blamed Belarus for deliberately engineering a humanitarian crisis. The feud between Poland and Belarus could even see the involvement of Russia and NATO if the conditions worsened. Putin, however, insisted that Russia had nothing to do with the crisis on Belarus’ border on Saturday, November 13.
    Thousands of migrants have accumulated at the border between Belarus and EU states Poland and Lithuania in freezing conditions. The EU states are not allowing them to cross. Many have died and more deaths are feared given the bitter winter conditions settling in. According to aid groups, some 11 deaths have been reported so far since the crisis began.
    Concerns for the migrants are growing given the falling temperatures as Poland is not allowing them to cross the border and accusing Belarus of not letting them leave the border. The Polish Border Guard noted there were 219 attempts to illegally cross the border on Friday, while the Lithuanian border guard informed that 144 migrants attempted to cross the same day. Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Kaminski told private broadcaster RMF FM on Saturday that he would soon meet US Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines to discuss the situation.

  4. Bishops call for solidarity with migrants on the Polish border
    The Polish Church has announced a special collection on Sunday, November 21, for migrants and refugees entering the country from Belarus, as tensions grow over the border crisis.

    As the migrant crisis escalates on the border between Poland and Belarus, Polish bishops are calling on the faithful to show solidarity to migrants and refugees who have managed to enter the country. “Regardless of the circumstances of their arrival, they certainly need our spiritual and material support “, wrote the president of the Polish bishops, Archbishop Stanislaw G?decki. He announced that the Polish Church will hold a special collection on Sunday 21 November, saying the humanitarian situation in the region is “serious.”
    Poland has been facing a major emergency since last August, when thousands of migrants from the Middle East and Africa started to flow into the country, as well as into Lithuania and Latvia, from neighbouring Belarus. According to Polish authorities, there have been more than 30,000 illegal attempts so far.
    The Polish government, along with the European Union, has accused Minsk of encouraging the massive flow as a form of “hybrid warfare” in retaliation for Western sanctions on President Alexander Lukashenko’s government for his brutal crackdown against pro-democracy protests. Lukashenko, who won a sixth term in a disputed presidential election in August 2020 and is supported by Russia, has repeatedly denied the accusations.
    In response to the crisis, Poland has built a razor-wire fence, deployed additional troops, border guards and police along its eastern border, and is cracking down on migrants attempting to enter the country. The border guards have been pushing migrants back across the border, including families with children, thanks also to a new Polish law that makes that legal. Polish lawmakers have also approved recently the construction of a €347 million anti-migrant wall.
    Human rights groups, however, have criticised both Poland and Belarus for their harsh treatment of migrants and refugees, who face cold weather and a lack of food and medical care. At least seven people have died so far trying to make their way into the country. Other people are also reported to have died on the Belarusian side.
    While upholding Warsaw’s stance on the issue and Poland’s right to protect its borders, the Catholic Church in Poland continues to provide relief work for the migrants and actively advocates for the respect of their basic human rights, through its Caritas network and the Catholic Migrant and Refugee Office of the Bishops’ Conference of Poland (KEP).
    In his message, Archbishop G?decki calls on the faithful and all people of goodwill to support this effort by contributing to the special collection of November 21, recalling that the Church’s primary mission is the proclamation of the Gospel which calls for solidarity with the most vulnerable. The funds, he explained, will help the Church’s humanitarian activities that aim to meet the growing needs of the migrants during the crisis, as well as its efforts, in the long term, to promote the integration of refugees who decide to stay in Poland.
    In conclusion, the President of the Polish Bishops invited Catholics to pray for peace on Poland’s eastern border.
