Reader’s Links for April 28th, 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. This Elliot Wave analyst predicts a deflationary crash bringing gold to sub-$1000/oz. The current ratio corresponds to sub $12 silver. This will be driven by supply chain damage, war, and the subsequent flight to safety manifested in USD holding. The severity of this Great Depression-like drop will be followed by unprecedented government printing stimulus that will bring PMs back to multiples of their current values. His charts tell him all of this will happen in the next 8 months to three years.

    He is a contrarian but is not alone. Jim Rickards and Michael Pento see similar scenarios. It is critical to listen to these contrarians in order to triangulate one’s position. Criticism of his forecast is best found in the comments beneath the video.

    Are precious metals performing their wealth preservation function adequately? Given our current real inflation circa 15% one can argue they are not, especially given their recent falls. Also, given their paper suppression one can see why they could be disfunctional. Or, are they, indeed, maintaining their value and only reflecting the Elliot Wave crystal ball? Are PMs possibly the embodiment of future trends by sensing the accumulated impulses of millions of daily trades in all markets, and in doing so telling us that we are on the cusp of a deflationary crash, and that they are, in fact, properly priced in their protective role?

    Only your hairdresser knows for sure.

  2. Yom Hashoah: Remembrance Day, 2022
    https://www.yadvashem.org/yv/en/remembrance-day/overview.asp

    This year the Central Theme is “Transports to Extinction: The Deportation of the Jews during the Holocaust”:

    “In keeping with the policy of the “Final Solution,” during World War II the Germans and their collaborators uprooted millions of Jews from their homes and deported them to their deaths. This meticulously organized operation was an event of historic significance, obliterating Jewish communities throughout German-occupied territory that had existed for centuries.

    “Vast numbers of Jews were sent straight to the extermination sites, while many others were first taken to ghettos and transit camps. Thus, the cattle – or railway – car, the principal mode of Nazi deportation, became one of the most iconic symbols of the Holocaust.

    “Originally a symbol of progress, globalization and human technological prowess during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the railway car warped into the emblem of the backsliding of human values into the abyss of wholesale mass murder on an unprecedented scale.

      • The Germans are clever.
        In response to demanding warmongers, they’re sending advanced heavy weapons. That will be USELESS for the foreseeable future.

        “There are probably less than ten people in the current Bundeswehr who still know how to operate and maintain a Gepard. There is thus little chance to find German crews for them.

        “If the Ukrainians really want to use these outdated systems they will have to train fresh crews for at least a year. Otherwise those guns will be ineffective and of little use.”

        Moreover:
        “Neutral Switzerland has vetoed the re-export of Swiss-made ammunition used in Gepard anti-aircraft tanks that Germany is sending to Ukraine.…

        “Germany earlier announced its first delivery of heavy weapons to Ukraine to help it fend off Russian attacks following weeks of pressure at home and abroad to do so.

        “The Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs… blocked Germany from sending munitions for the Gepard tank to Ukraine.”

      Is Foreign Secretary Liz Truss’ ambition to push Russia out of the whole of Ukraine realistic?

        Various signs, such as explosions, shelling of state security building & statement by #Russia military commander, suggest that pro-Russian separatist #Transdniestria in #Moldova & #Russian troops there can enter…

        [Reports of] shooting & drones from #Ukraine direction in village of Kolbasna in this separatist region of #Moldova. One of largest weapon depos in Eastern Europe is located there. It is guarded by #Russian troops.…

        Transnistria is unrecognized pro-Russian republic with ethnic #Ukrainian president & population of ethnic #Russians, #Ukrainians & Moldovans. #Transdniestria was part of Soviet #Ukraine between WW1 & #WW2, while rest of #Moldova was part of #Romania.

        Turkic-speaking Gagauz… are Orthodox and expressed pro-Russian attitudes. Ethnic #Ukrainian president of #Transdniestria / #Transnistria is no longer in power…

        The Ukrainians… would have a definite military advantage in Transnistria given the small number of Russian troops stationed there.

        Moldova being dragged into the war would be a “dangerous development … Romania will also [enter the war] … due to its close linguistic and historical ties with Moldova – where the majority of the population speaks Romanian.”

    • CBC – Canada pushing allies to seize, redistribute Russian assets

      Former Ukrainian infrastructure minister Volodymyr Omelyan discusses the damage in Ukraine from the war, Canada’s proposal for legislation and rebuilding Ukraine.

    • Clint Ehrlich, A mega-thread [my edits]:

      The West is pushing Ukraine to attack inside Russia.
      It’s a great tactic – but a horrible strategy.

      Putin can respond by declaring war on Ukraine, making millions of conscripts available. The conflict would grow to an apocalyptic scale matching WW2.

      There have already been a series of mysterious fires and explosions inside Russian territory…

      To date, Vladimir Putin has insisted that what is happening in Ukraine is a “special military operation.”

      Because Russia has not declared war, it has not begun a full-scale military mobilization.
      But cross-border attacks change the political calculus. They make it seem that the Russian homeland is under threat.…

      A full Russian military mobilization would vastly change the strategic picture inside Ukraine. [I]f Russia begins a full national mobilization, its troops will *vastly* outnumber Ukraine’s forces…

      The immediate target of Putin’s nuclear rhetoric is the West. But the subtext is that *any* potential adversary should be ready to be struck with Russian nukes. That includes China if it were to make territorial incursions into Russia’s Far East.

      What we are discussing is, of course, military mobilization on a scale that has not been since World War 2. But the groundwork for such a mobilization is already being laid by the domestic political rhetoric within Russia.

      Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, has argued that the country is now fighting a proxy war against NATO, where Ukraine is simply the battlefield…

      At the same time, Russia’s government has sought to invoke the memory of WW2 to justify the current conflict…

      The symbol “Z” has been rebranded as standing for 77 years since the Great Patriotic War.

      In reality, Putin still remains determined to delivery victory. And supporting Ukrainian attacks inside Russia gives him the blueprint he needs to reset the war…

      Putin would position himself as a war-time President equal in status to Stalin – the man who took on NATO in Ukraine and won…

      Adm. James Stavridis discusses Russia’s military advances in eastern Ukraine along with the history of French military leader Napoleon Bonaparte.

    • TIME – Inside Zelensky’s World

      The nights are the hardest, when he lies there on his cot, the whine of the air-raid sirens in his ears and his phone still buzzing beside him. Its screen makes his face look like a ghost in the dark, his eyes scanning messages he didn’t have a chance to read during the day. Some from his wife and kids, many from his advisers, a few from his troops, surrounded in their bunkers, asking him again and again for more weapons to break the Russian siege.

      Inside his own bunker, the President has a habit of staring at his daily agenda even when the day is over. He lies awake

  6. Dr. Phyllis Chesler:
    Nostalgia for the Slaughterhouse

    A new documentary about the making of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ evokes wonder at our idealization of a past that wasn’t very nice
    {snips}
    “In this time period (1917-1921), there were “over a thousand pogroms in about five hundred localities.”

    “[P]ogroms came in waves, one after the other, and each one may have “lasted for ten days while the town changed hands … (then) the pogrom would start over with the most vigorous brutality.”

    “The carnival of violence, complete with scenes of torture, rape, and murder, played out on the second day of the pogrom as ‘celebratory street theater.’ Pogrom perpetrators purposefully drove Jews into the streets and hunted down their victims … acts of torture took place in front of an audience of pogrom perpetrators, the local population, and frightened Jews.

    “The ritualized violence reiterated the previous pogroms, but often in a more grotesque and horrifying form. The elderly couple…stripped naked and forced to run through the streets as hunted animals, cheered by the Cossacks.

    Pogromschiki bayoneted their victims, careful not to kill them, but to leave the wounded to suffer and bleed to death in agony that lasted sometimes for several days. Elderly parents were left to die, while their families were not allowed to help them…”

    Remember: This all took place … in western Ukraine…
    But, I must ask: What other group has a need to romanticize or soften the terrifying violence against them? Does this function the way Jewish humor does—to lessen the sting of shame or bitterness?

    Can we imagine African Americans waxing nostalgic about being in chains on board a ship during the Middle Passage? Or romanticizing lynching or rape on a plantation? Or the sale of children away from their mothers…?
