Reader’s Links for February 28, 2022

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. So much Schmalz and other high fat lubricants in the reporting the goodness of all these people, donating goulash, tea, cookies, to the poor victims of BIG BAD PUTIN…I’m starting to suspect that Big Pharma has another “vaccine” in the oven, one that will lower our cholesterol, caused by so much Fat.

    The following video is 38 minutes short, its blurb says:

    “……In this episode of The Remnant Underground, Michael J. Matt takes a deep dive into the politics behind the Crisis in Ukraine. If you want to know what’s really going on, turn off Fox News and CNN. The last time war fever hit this pitch, we blew up the Mideast in a pointless war that lasted over twenty years….

    and the blurb keeps its promises.

    Michael J. Matt is a very traditional Catholic (for Latin Mass and against the fake Davos Pope Francis)…do not let this deter you, I think he has one of the most finely tuned political brains …. and the courage to call a spade a shovel. (I’m a fan, in case it’s not obvious)

    Sources: Belarus to join Russia’s war on Ukraine within hours
    https://kyivindependent.com/national/sources-belarus-to-join-russias-war-on-ukraine-within-hours/
    As Russia fails to inflict quick defeat upon Ukraine after four days of fierce hostilities, Vladimir Putin is about to pull his Belarusian ally, dictator Aleksandr Lukashenko into his war of occupation.
    Amid many speculations, multiple sources say the decision has been made — and as soon as on Feb. 28 at 5 a.m. local time, the first Ilyushin Il-76 transport aircraft is very likely to take off carrying Belarusian paratroopers to be deployed against Ukraine.
    It’s not clear whether the local time the messages refer to is Belarusian or Ukrainian; 5 a.m. in Minsk is 4 a.m. in Kyiv.
    Rumors regarding the official Belarusian involvement in the war started circulating on Feb. 27, the fourth day of Russia’s all-out war on Ukraine, following a report presented to diplomatic circles by unnamed Belarusian opposition journalists.
    The message suggested that Belarusian troops might be deployed to the Kyiv or the Zhytomyr areas in assistance to the Russian invading force.
    The report couldn’t be verified, but there have been other indications of Belarusian military activity. A media campaign was launched, particularly by Belarusian opposition media, to warn off the Belarusian involvement.
    As part of the endeavor, former high-ranking Belarusian airborne commander Valeriy Sakhashik, in a video address, urged all Belarusian paratroopers not to obey unlawful orders that would throw them into a war against a friendly nation.
    [..]
    On Feb. 27, Lukashenko said that Belarusians started facing violence in Ukraine and that Kyiv is threatening Belarus with terror activities. It echoed the pretext that Putin gave for launching the invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24.
    Amid concerns, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky had a phone call with Lukashenko on Feb. 27, following which the Ukrainian leader said Lukashenko reassured him of his non-involvement in Russia’s war.
    However, according to former Ukrainian Defense Minister Andriy Zagorodnyuk, in reality, the Belarusian dictator, whose existence highly depends on Putin, has no choice other than to join.
    From the expert’s perspective, Belarus’s involvement would be an escalating factor, though it would not have a dramatic escalation effect in the war. In particular, Lukashenko might invade Ukraine’s northwestern regions on which Russia is not currently focused.
    “But the Belarusian military has no combat experience, at all,” Zagorodnyuk said. “It really matters. And they are not motivated, they do not really understand what they will be doing in Ukraine.”
    The media campaign to warn off Belarusian soldiers from joining the Ukrainian invasion has just started, and it needs to be continued, Zagorodnyuk said.
    “If god forbid, Lukashenko gives an order to go in, I hope many would refuse to shoot at Ukrainians,” he said. “Otherwise, this will be a historic tragedy between the two peoples.”

    • ..which means miniscule growth.
      Russia has gone from financial crisis to financial crisis.. they get out of them by devaluing the ruble. Not sure if I’d call that fiscal acumen.
      The main reason the russian government has little external debt and sits on a pile of cash is the last round of sanctions, which makes it hard to borrow or import.
      Then there’s the high gas price. Oil 7 gas account for about 50% of tax revenue in Russia.

      • Good points all, X. My point is he hasn’t cornered himself in the same debt trap as most Western. Central banks have. We can’t raise rates without killing our economies, and we can’t leave them low for inflation.

  3. Marcus Tullius Circero, Roman Statesman and Philosopher (106 – 43 BC )

    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of GOVERNMENT ITSELF.
    For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their faces and their arguments, he appeals to the baseless that lies deep in the hearts of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear. THE TRAITOR IS THE PLAGUE.”

    Dear American People, Dear Friends,
    “For two years now, a global coup has been carried out all over the world, planned for some time by an elite group of conspirators enslaved to the interests of international high finance.
    This coup was made possible by an emergency pandemic that is based on the premise of a virus that has a mortality rate almost analogous to that of any other seasonal flu virus, on the delegitimization and prohibition of effective treatments, and on distribution of an experimental gene serum which is obviously ineffective, and which also clearly carries with it the danger of serious and even lethal side effects.”

    The Great Barrington Declaration sought to end lockdowns, opting for an approach they dubbed “Focus Protection”, which would aspire to achieve “heard immunity” while protecting the vulnerable”.

    In an email from October 2020, outgoing NIH Director, Francis Collins, lamented to his colleagues Lawrence Tabak, Cliff Lane, and Anthony Fauci, that the Great Barrington Declaration was getting “a lot of attention”. There needs to be a quick and devastating takedown of its premises.

    “This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to re-imagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change.
    The great reset involves a collaboration between national governments and international bodies to “reset capitalism” with an integrated transnational technocratic welfare / surveillance state by 2030”.

    “If you are involved in this protest, we will actively look to identify you and follow up with financial sanctions and criminal charges.”

    The “conservative” premier of Ontario Doug Ford, has shut down 39 trucking companies for involvement in the protest. No due process, just seizure of licences. These truckers haven’t been charged with any crime.

  7. Two more graphic videos from Ukraine. Russian soldiers seem to be shoot random motorists.

  8. A bunch of videos from Kharkiv, Ukraine (article is in Dutch, contains little information).
    It looks like the city was bombed by BM-21 “Grad” missile launchers, with cluster munitions.
    Some videos are graphic, dead bodies and one live victim with a severed leg.
    No ukrainian soldier in sight, looks like indiscriminate attack against civilians:

    In case these videos can’t be downloaded or embedded: I’m sure they can be found elsewhere. Reddit seems a good place for this stuff atm.

  9. I might not post much for a couple days.

    My Russki’s son is “holding the fort” in Kiev. (We think. He may be serving elsewhere.)
    His wife and kids are making their way to his brother’s family in Israel. Much better if they’d come here, we’ll see.

    All is gossip so far.

  10. the globe and mail – Jean Charest to meet with Conservatives MPs to discuss party leadership

    […]Charest will be in Ottawa this week to discuss the party’s leadership with Conservative MPs at an event hosted by two who want him to run.

    Quebec MP Alain Rayes and Nova Scotia’s Rick Perkins were among the signatories of an open letter published last week saying they want the 63-year-old to enter the race.

    […]A spokesman for Rayes’ office confirms Charest will be in Ottawa on Wednesday and says over the past few weeks several MPs and senators have expressed an interest in speaking to him, which is why the event was arranged.

    National Post – Jean Charest to meet MPs in Ottawa later this week, adding to leadership speculation

    Quebec’s anti-corruption unit has announced it is ending an investigation into Liberal fundraising when Charest was leader

    Charest will be in Ottawa later this week to meet Conservative MPs, adding to the intense speculation that he will indeed be taking part in the leadership race of the party opposing him to MP Pierre Poilievre.

    […]The news comes as Quebec’s anti-corruption unit announced on Monday morning it was putting an end to the eight-year-long investigation, known as Mâchurer, targeting the Quebec Liberal Party’s fundraising between 2001 and 2012, when Charest was leader of the party.

    […]The end of the Mâchurer investigation lifts a huge weight from Charest’s shoulders as he prepares for a potential leadership bid for the Conservatives. But his political rivals will most certainly make sure he is reminded of the allegations of corruption that have floated around him for years as former leader of the Quebec Liberals.
