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. The following is related to the ongoing investigation into the validity of the invocation of Emergency Act in response to the Freedom Convoy.

    Even though Jeremy MacKenzie is a goof who made headlines when he got drunk and made a terrible joke about Pierre Poilievre’s wife, I’m going to stick my neck out and say a few words about his brainchild, Diagolon, which has been described as an extremist group during the E.A. hearings.

    Diagolon is the creation of a comedian. It’s the punchline of a joke. It’s a meme. It’s the deliberately ridiculous name of a fictitious nation.

    It is humour that is unauthorized by the state.

    There is a possibility that the police have framed this comedian by placing an artificial Diagolon patch at the scene of a cache of guns near the Coutts Trucker blockade. The police may have literally made a false flag event out of a fake flag. The absurdity of this alleged fraud will likely make Jeremy Mackenzie famous, lol. Canadian comedy is back.

    See the evidence in the link below,

  2. Energy is foundational to civilization, the progress of which is connected to energy both in terms of prosperity and population growth.

    Precious metals evolved into the highest form of money for reasons natural to human endeavor:

    There have been many forms of money in history, but some forms have worked better than others because they have characteristics that make them more useful. The characteristics of money are durability, portability, divisibility, uniformity, limited supply, and acceptability. Scan the periodic table to eliminate all other candidates to money. The counterparty risk to blockchain currencies is their vulnerability to electricity supply.

    The energy needed to get pm’s out of the earth is one part of their value equation. The other is their utility in storing this energy. Since possessing them represents this energy savings devoid of counterparty risk, they are unmatched. They are the distillate of all physical and mental efforts to obtain them. Compared to silver, gold’s relative uselessness in industry makes it the highest form of money. It is barely consumed. Silver is both a monetary and industrial metal. This dual purpose makes it more volatile in the marketplace. Yet, it acts as money on a historical 15:1 silver/gold ratio basis. This ratio currently stands at 88.99:1. Reversion to the mean, anyone?

    Now much of Western Ukraine, which lies far away from the front lines of fighting with Russia in the east, is without power due to fresh weekend airstrikes across the country.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a Saturday night address said new “massive” strikes targeted Dnipropetrovsk, Khmelnytsky, Kirovohrad, Mykolaiv, Odessa, Rivne, Volyn and Zaporizhia regions.

    “We continue eliminating the aftermath of today’s terrorist attacks on our infrastructure,” Zelensky said. “The geography of this new massive strike is very wide.”

    Via EurasiaNet,

    Iran’s military is conducting large-scale military drills on its border with Azerbaijan, including practicing crossings of the Aras River, which defines a large part of the border between the two states.
    The exercises, called “Mighty Iran,” began on October 17. The exact location has not been specified, but Iranian media placed them in between Iran’s provinces of Ardabil and East Azerbaijan, the part of Iran across the Aras from Azerbaijan’s Fuzuli region. One expert on open-source intelligence, however, analyzed photos of the pontoon crossing and placed it across from Azerbaijan’s exclave of Nakhchivan.

  10. China Congress Ends As “Dictator For LIfe” Xi Stacks Inner Circle With Loyalists; Equity Market Implications

    One week after it started with a historic, “resetting” speech by China’s President, on Sunday – a day after China’s top political meeting of the past five years wrapped up – Xi Jinping unveiled a new leadership team stacked with loyalists as he looks to consolidate his power in a precedent-busting third term.

    One day after his predecessor Hu Jintao was unceremoniously escorted out of the 20th Party Congress for reasons still unknown, Xi walked into Beijing’s Great Hall of the People followed by members of the Communist Party’s new Politburo Standing Committee — the pinnacle of Chinese leadership — in descending ranking order.

  11. Foreign Actors Weren’t Behind the Convoy, Commission Evidence Confirms.

    Should Canadians demand a commission, investigation, whatever one might call it into Justine Trudeau being placed into office by George Soros and the Tides Foundation? Remember the shock and surprise when Justine was elected?

    Act4Canada

    Electoral outcomes were influenced, alleges a report.

    A 36-page report entitled Elections Canada Co:plaint Regarding Foreign Influence, in the 2015 Canadian election alleges third parties worked with each other to bypass federal elections spending limits – – all of which appears to be in contravention of the Canada Elections Act.

    FOREIGN MONEY funnelled towards Canadian political advocacy groups affected the 2015 federal election, according to documents filed with Elections Canada and obtained by the Calgary Herald in May of 2017.

    Analysis of an October 2006 Tides Foundation Conference reveals the establishment of a national institution to act as a Social Investment Bank to support the “social economy” on a worldwide basis.

    The Social Investment Bank, brainchild of the GEORGE SOROS – linked Tides Canada Foundation, was established by the Liberals as the Canada Infrastructure Bank in 2017.

    Investigative journalist Vivian Krause estimates that between 2000 and 2012, American donors poured roughly 300 MILLION into controversial Canadian environmental groups that interfered with domestic politics.

    When her research uncovered the depth of the United States donor involvement in Canada, the Canadian government withdrew an 8.3 million funding agreement with the Tides Canada Foundation.

    Major donors or the foundation include:
    George Soros’ Foundation to Promote Open Society – – $10,259,289
    George Soros’ Open Society Foundations – – $12,130,241
    Rockefeller Brothers Fund – – $5,373,108
    Rockefeller Family Fund – – $490,914
    Rockefeller Foundation – – $1,661,055
    Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors – – $3,525,000

    In total the 114 third parties were funded by California- and New York – based Tides Foundation – known in Canada for holding anti-Canadian oil campaigns focused primarily on the Alberta Oil Sands.

    This is not a partisan issue by Conservatives. This is a Canadian issue. This affects all Canadians whether you are NDP, PPC, Green, Liberal or Conservative.

    YOU should be very concerned about FOREIGN MONEY being spent on Canada during an election campaign. Generally we are not. Media alluded to American environmental groups buying the 2015 federal election, but they never followed through exposing this to the people of Canada. Perhaps Justine Trudeau cut them a 10.5 million dollar cheque not to do so.

    According to the Elections Act “a third party shall not attempt to circumvent a limit set out…. In any manner, including by splitting itself into 2 or more 3 rd parties for the purpose of circumventing the limit or acting in COLLUSION with another 3 rd party so that their combined election advertising expenses exceed the limit.

    “Election outcomes were influenced,” alleges the report.

    Quite. Connections between the Liberal Party and billionaire George Soros are well know to political insiders.

    In August 2020, Conservatives’ Environment Critic, Kerry Lynne-Findlay tweeted a video of current Deputy Prime Minister, Chrystia Freeland interviewing George Soros when she was a journalist with the Financial Times. Findlay commented that their closeness should alarm every Canadian”.

    The edited 2-minute clip shows Soros advocating for then US President, Barack Obama to bring China into what the financier describes as a New World Order, a Financial World Order.

    Findlay wrote that Freeland listened carefully to Soros “like a student to a teacher”.

    Did the influence of George Soros help win Justin Trudeau the 2015 election? while direct evidence is sketchy, the 2 are fully aligned on an ideological basis.

    Tides and Soros advocate for eroding oil and energy production in Alberta. Trudeau erodes production. Soros’ Open Borders Society advocates for —you guessed it —open borders for western democracies (non-democratic nations exempt). Trudeau sends out a tweet encouraging illegal refugees to rush the Canadian border from the United States.

    “Moms say George Soros Foundation using term “birthing people” is dehumanizing.

    Some activists moms around the country are angry about the term “birthing people” being used by left-wing entities such as George Soros’ Open Society Foundation. This is all part of an ideology that is truly totalitarian in nature, said the Rhode Island mom Nicole Solas.

    This is exactly what we are seeing with these radical gender identity cultists.

    All of it supported by the Trudeau government. Open Society Foundation funds abortion in Africa. Justin Trudeau ships hundreds of millions to Africa for abortion, an illegal practice in many recipient countries.

    Full ideological alignment. In return for pulling backroom strings to place globalist ideologue devoid of qualifications into the office of Prime Minister?

    Hayden Ludwig of the Capital Research Center contends the Tides Foundation is “the philanthropic left’s best kept secret”.

    Is their secrecy so successful that they planted woke automation Justin Trudeau without Canadian voters comprehending the situation? Is this how our country got saddled with an incompetent armature leading a ideological revolution not a single Canadian asked for?

  12. We’re Looking at Something Very Different – The Press Being Part of the Intelligence Community” – Lee Smith Describes the Latest Role of the Fake News (VIDEO)

    Author and investigative journalist Lee Smith explained the dangerous development inside our national media.

    According to Lee Smith, and what appears to be quite evident, the American mainstream media is now part of the intelligence community. This was proven time and time again during the Trump years.

    The purpose of today’s mainstream press is not to inform, but to move the masses in the direction designated by the intelligence community.

    There are several examples of this:

  14. reuters – Biden to get updated COVID vaccine, urge Americans to follow suit

    Biden will get his updated COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday and urge more Americans to get the latest shot, White House spokesman Kevin Munoz said on Sunday.

    Only 20 million people in the United States have received an updated COVID vaccine through last week. White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre said on Thursday it was not enough.

    “We need everyone to step up and get their updated vaccine as soon as possible,” she said.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last week 4.5 million Americans had received the updated vaccine over the past week, the largest weekly increase since the fall vaccination program launched and up about 40% from the prior week.

    The United States started rolling out the updated COVID shots in September, designed to take on the circulating BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron subvariants and the original version of the virus.

    Biden in July tested positive for COVID with mild symptoms and tested positive in a rebound case seen in a small percentage of people who take the antiviral drug Paxlovid. In August, he tested negative twice and ended his more than two weeks of isolation at the White House.
