Reader’s Links for July 2, 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.

    Published July 2, 2022 at

    Michigan’s corrupt Attorney General, Democrat Dana Nessel is drunk on power. She also was drunk as a skunk last year at the Michigan – Michigan State football game where she reportedly needed to be carted out of the stadium in a wheelchair passed out.

    Now AG Nessel is threatening her opponent in the upcoming 2022 election. Jeff Timmer, a senior adviser for the Nessel campaign, tweeted on Wednesday that his boss’s Republican challenger Matt DePerno has to “remain unindicted” to qualify for a debate. Timmer tweeted the threat just after

    • The US has moved deep into Third World status when one politician feels they are powerful enough to threaten their opponent with arrest so they won’t be as to qualify for a debate.

      The forces of tyranny are gathering strength to seize control of the world. The freedom loving people are once again being called to resist the evil of collectivism and ensure our decendents enjoy the freedom that is our birthright.

    Many people wonder if this politician has the ability to transform his party. I think the odds are against it. That machine may be too far gone, too corrupt, too woke. Conversely, being politicians they go with whatever political winds push them because they are not leaders.

    Fireworks displays are being rescheduled or canceled across the county for various reasons. But is the real reason because America haters don’t want to celebrate this great nation? Biden cancels Mount Rushmore fireworks again!

    Richard: The left knows they are in trouble because of their “destroy the US” policies, this is making them lash out in anger. They are seeing their campaigns of division united the majority of the population against the collectivist policies that are destroying Western Civilization. These temper tantrums are doing more damage to the left and energizing the opposition.

  4. Biden Blocks Offshore Drilling, Limiting Oil Production After Begging Oil Companies To Produce More and Attacking Gas Stations
    By Michael Robison
    Published July 2, 2022 at 9:00am

    Once again, the Biden administration announced a new plan to reduce domestic oil production, this time preventing new offshore oil drilling projects in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

    On Friday, the Department of Interior announced part of its process to implement a new five-year plan for offshore oil drilling. The plan could allow a maximum of 11 oil lease sales for offshore drilling, ten in the Gulf of Mexico and one in the Cook Inlet off the south-central Alaska coast over the next five years. The plan eliminates any new productions from both the Atlantic and Pacific regions.

    Richard:The left is showing how stupid they think we are, their actions are digging a very deep hole the we (the Patriots) are going to bury their political philosophy in.

  5. Texas Supreme Court Blocks Lower Court Ruling That Allowed Abortions To Continue

    The Texas Supreme Court has given the go-ahead for the state to enforce laws that ban abortion, blocking efforts that barred the laws from taking effect after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

    On Friday, the Texas Supreme Court allowed the state’s longstanding pre-Roe abortion ban to take effect by blocking a lower court order that said clinics could continue performing abortions.

    Richard: He is right, the main reason we are tolerating this tyranny is the 100+ years the left has spend indoctrinating the people into believing that we the people can’t take care of ourselves. They have spent a lot of time and money making people believe that we are helpless and need our betters (the political class) to tells us what we need and provide for our needs.

    The deliberate destruction of the US economy and the deliberate come fomenting of WWIII is now destroying a lot of the indoctrination and causing people to stand up and resist the tyrants.

    We reported yesterday on a meeting that included many of the same individuals and entities involved in the 2020 Election steal.

    Richard: I pray that the writer is wrong but I am afraid that he is right, the Patriots are working hard to ensure an honest election but this may not be possible. For most of my life it would have been impossible for the Dems to steal enough small local elections to keep control of Congress. Now with modern technology they might be able to steal enough local elections to continue oppressing us and trying to turn us into serfs.

  8. U.S. Department of Defense

    $820 Million in Additional Security Assistance for Ukraine
    JULY 1, 2022

    Attributed to Pentagon Press Secretary Todd Breasseale:

    This afternoon, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced $820 million in additional security assistance for Ukraine. This includes an authorization of a Presidential Drawdown of security assistance valued at up to $50 million, as well as $770 million in Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI) funds.

    The PDA authorization is the fourteenth drawdown of equipment from DoD inventories for Ukraine that the Biden Administration has authorized since August 2021. Capabilities in this package include:

    Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).
    Under USAI, the DoD will provide Ukraine with critical capabilities to defend against Russian aggression. Included in this package are:

    Two National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems (NASAMS);
    Up to 150,000 rounds of 155mm artillery ammunition; and
    Four additional counter-artillery radars.

    Unlike Presidential Drawdown, USAI is an authority under which the United States procures capabilities from industry rather than delivering equipment that is drawn down from DoD stocks. This announcement represents the beginning of a contracting process to provide additional capabilities to Ukraine’s Armed Forces.

    The United States has now committed approximately $7.6 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the beginning of the Biden Administration, including approximately $6.9 billion since the beginning of Russia’s unprovoked invasion on February 24. Since 2014, the United States has committed more than $8.8 billion in security assistance to Ukraine.

    The United States continues to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with capabilities to meet its evolving battlefield requirements. In particular, DoD recognizes Norway’s cooperation to enable the historic provision by the United States of modern air defense systems that will help Ukraine defend against Russia’s brutal air attacks.

    VoA – US Announces $820 Million Military Aid Package for Ukraine

    The United States announced details Friday of $820 million in additional military aid for Ukraine, including new surface-to-air missile systems and counter-artillery radar.

    The latest aid package is designed to help Ukraine counter Russia’s use of long-range missiles and follows calls by Ukrainian officials for Western countries to send more advanced weapons systems that can better match Moscow’s equipment.

    The Pentagon said Friday the Biden administration has now sent $7.6 billion in security assistance to Ukraine, including nearly $7 billion since the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine at the end of February.

    U.S. President Joe Biden said at a news conference during this week’s NATO summit in Madrid that the United States is “going to support Ukraine as long as it takes.”

    The 14th U.S. package of military aid for Ukraine include two air defense systems, known as NASAMS, which can help Ukrainian forces defend against cruise missiles and aircraft.

    A senior U.S. official said the systems are NATO-standard defense systems and are part of an effort to update Ukraine’s air defenses from a Soviet-era system to a modern one.

    “The Ukrainians are doing a magnificent job of employing their existing air defense systems, but we all know that Soviet-type systems means that it’s Russian made … so over time it will be harder to sustain with the spare parts,” the official said.

    The latest military aid package also provides Ukrainians with up to 150,000 rounds of 155-millimeter artillery ammunition as well as additional ammunition for medium-range rocket systems the United States provided Ukraine in June.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his daily address, “I am especially grateful to the United States of America and personally to Biden for the new support package for Ukraine. … We are no less actively negotiating about other new weapons from our partners. …We are doing everything to break the advantage of the occupiers.”

    On the battlefront Friday, at least 21 people were killed and dozens injured in Russian missile strikes in Ukraine’s Odesa region. At least one of the sites that were hit was a residential building. Ukrainian military officials said two children were among the dead, and the search for survivors is ongoing.

    The missile struck the nine-story building in the town of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi, according to a Ukraine Defense Ministry statement.

    Serhiy Bratchuk, spokesperson for the Odesa regional administration, said on Ukrainian state television that a rescue operation continues to free people buried under the rubble after a section of the building collapsed. Another missile hit a resort facility, Bratchuk said, wounding several people.

    Russia has denied targeting civilians in the attack.

    “I would like to remind you of the president’s words that the Russian Armed Forces do not work with civilian targets,” Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said.

    Zelenskyy’s chief of staff accused Russia of waging a war on civilians.

    In his nightly video address Friday, Zelenskyy called the strikes “conscious, deliberately targeted Russian terror and not some sort of error or a coincidental missile strike.”

    Zelenskyy also said 12 missiles also hit Mykolaiv.

    Friday’s missile attack in Odesa came hours after Russia said it had pulled its forces from Ukraine’s Snake Island on Thursday. The strategic island had become a symbol of Ukrainian resistance since Moscow’s invasion four months ago.

    Russia had used the Black Sea island near Odesa as a staging ground after seizing it in the early stages of the war, launching attacks on Ukraine from it and monitoring shipments from Ukrainian ports.

    Ukraine confirmed Russian forces had pulled out after Ukrainian forces hit the island with missile and artillery strikes overnight, leaving the remaining Russian forces to escape in two speedboats.

    The Russian Defense Ministry claimed it had left the small island “as a symbol of goodwill” after completing its mission there.

    A senior U.S. official said the United States does “not believe there is any credence to what Russia is saying, that this is a gesture of goodwill.” The official said the retreat was more about Ukraine’s efforts to defend the island and Kyiv’s use of weapons like harpoon missiles.

    “The Ukrainians made it very hard for the Russians to sustain their operations there, made them very vulnerable to Ukrainian strikes,” the official said.

    In other developments, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told Ukraine’s parliament that EU membership was “within reach” but urged them to press forward with anti-corruption reforms.

    “You have created an impressive anti-corruption machine,” she told the lawmakers by video link Friday. Von der Leyen stressed that Brussels and the EU member states were firmly behind Ukraine in both its battle with the ongoing Russian invasion and the quest to be “reunited with our European family.”

    For his part Zelenskyy said Ukraine and the European Union were starting a new chapter of their history after Brussels formally accepted Ukraine’s candidacy to join the 27-nation bloc.

    “We made a journey of 115 days to candidate status and our journey to membership shouldn’t take decades. We should make it down this road quickly,” Zelenskyy said.

    At the NATO meeting in Madrid, Western leaders, including Biden, proclaimed their continued military and humanitarian support for Ukraine.

    Norway announced $1 billion in aid to Ukraine over two years, as Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store visited the country.

    The fund is for “humanitarian aid, reconstruction of the country, weapons and operational support to the (Ukrainian) authorities,” the Norwegian government said in a statement Friday.

    “We stand together with the Ukrainian people,” Store said in the statement.

    “We help support the Ukrainians’ struggle for freedom. They are fighting for their country, but also for our democratic values.”

    Lisichansk – July 02 2022

    • We are not helping anybody. We’re encouraging Prez Z to overule his top generals.

      If he had taken their advice three weeks ago, 8000 soldiers would’ve been spared in Lysychans’k, pulled back in an orderly withdrawal to fight another day.

      Now perhaps – perhaps !! – 2000 men in terrible condition will make their way out, leaving all their equipment. It might be reported as a tactical retreat, but it’s a rout. Extremely demoralizing, a criminal waste.

      Every manuever is calibrated for propaganda value, not tactical military value. Prez Z knows nothing about the order of battle, and Boris Johnson knows even less. It’s also possible that Nato advisers are clowns, top-brass know-nothings.

      “Gifts” from the West – this I stand with Ukraine – it’s all cynical and evil.

    VARES # 2327226 An 8 year old girl from Texas, Vaccine Adverse Reaction Events System Report regarding this young child:

    She developed inflamed lymph nodes (lymphadenitis), a rash all over her body, ongoing fever for more than 3 weeks.

    She was diagnosed with Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C), her heart, intestines, lungs, skin and liver were inflamed.

    She was hospitalized and treated with immunoglobulin, steroids, anticoagulants, fever-reducing medications, etc..

    By the second treatment, her belly started getting distended, her lungs filled with liquids. She was transferred to the ICU and this small child’s heart stopped beating right there.

    The under reported VARES Report as of June 24, 2022 (historically at approximately 1%) reported:
    1,307,928 adverse reactions to the vaccines up 6,666 from the previous week.
    29,162 deaths up 131 from the previous week.
    Serious injuries 241,226 up 1004 from the previous week – heart attacks, strokes, brain bleeds, blindness, paralysis, Guillian Barre Syndrome, Pots disease……….

    The mailin President of the United States insists the vaccines are safe
    Medical Boards sent out warnings to doctors “Covid-19: Spreading vaccine “misinformation” puts licence at risk, US boards tell physicians”

    October 2021, internists, family doctors, paediatricians, received an email on September 9, 2021 that quoted a WARNING from the Federation of State Medical Boards in July which read: “Providing misinformation about Covid-19 vaccine contradicts physicians’ ethical and professional responsibilities and therefore may subject a physician to disciplinary actions, including suspension or revocation of their medical licence”.

    The “misinformed”, “minority” government of Justine Trudeau, not only insists the vaccines are safe, but also any Canadian who has not been vaccinated is not to be tolerated, racists, misogynistic, self centred, and spreading misinformation.

    I do not know what other provinces in Canada medical boards have stated, but I do know in 2019 The College of Physicians and Surgeon of Ontario stated:

    “The College is aware and concerned about the “misinformation” circulating on social media and other platforms regarding physicians who are publicly contradicting public orders and recommendations with the public and have a professional responsibility to not communicate anti-vaccine, anti-masking, anti-distancing, and anti-lockdown statements and / or promoting unsupported, unproven treatments for Covid-19.

    Physicians must not make comments or provide advice that encourages the public to act contrary to public health orders and recommendations. Physicians who put the public at risk may face an investigation by the CPSO (college) and disciplinary action may be warranted.

    When offering opinions, physicians must be guided by the LAW, regulatory standards and the CODE OF ETHICS AND PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT. The information shared must NOT be MISLEADING Zoe DECEPTIVE and MUST BE SUPPORTED BY AVAILABLE EVIDENCE AND SCIENCE.”

    I implore ALL Physicians in Canada and the United States to listen to the “deplorable”, misogynistic, racists, labeled by the governments doctors who know the truth about these shots that are killing and injuring people to stand up, walk away from all the propaganda and demand an end to all the COVID vaccines.

    Do not be part of this global insult on mankind, remember your oath.

    As for the media, they are nothing but collaborators in this tragedy and one day will be held responsible.

  12. Petition to impeach Clarence Thomas receives hundreds of thousands of signatures
    KAREN TOWNSEND Jul 02, 2022 4:01 PM ET

    In Biden’s America, the Democrat playbook is to tear every national institution down. One example is how the left is reacting to the overturning of Roe v Wade after the Supreme Court’s ruling on Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health. Since the Court returned abortion law back to the states, where it was before 1973 when the Supreme Court made up a constitutional right to abortion, the left has let loose with some radical reactions. One is calling for the impeachment of Justice Clarence Thomas.

  13. South Africans left in the dark after grid collapse
    JAZZ SHAW Jul 02, 2022 8:31 AM ET

    (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)
    South Africa is one of the most developed nations on the continent of Africa, with a GDP higher than any other nation there except Nigeria. They also boast a more advanced infrastructure than most of their neighbors. But this week you might not have been able to recognize those advancements since large parts of the country wound up being subjected to rolling blackouts for large portions of each day. Many residents claimed that the power was off for as much as nine hours per day. South Africa relies on electrical heating for a majority of both residential and business properties and winter has arrived there, so the situation is growing critical. But these outages didn’t have anything to do with winter storms or other natural disasters. Like many other countries, South Africa’s electrical grid simply couldn’t keep up with the demand for power, and the main utility company in the country, Eskom, was forced to cycle the power off to avoid having the grid collapse entirely.

    Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine has prompted thousands of people critical of the war to leave Russia. Istanbul has proved a popular choice, either for transit or a new home.
    In an elegant patisserie on the Asian side of Istanbul, I am waiting for Irina Gaisina to come back from the immigration office. The 39-year-old psychologist and politician left Russia for Turkey in early March, leaving behind her three children and husband.

    The reason was her work in politics — she was elected to the municipal council of St. Petersburg from Russia’s opposition Yabloko Party in 2019. Gaisina attended rallies for jailed opposition figure Alexei Navalny and signed anti-war petitions after Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.

    “The last demonstration I participated in was at the end of February. I was not arrested but some of my friends were,” she says. “I woke up and read news about my friends accused of terrorist activities. Their homes were raided. I was next
