Social Experiment


It has come to my attention that many people all around the Clear, and indeed the Dark Web suffer from endless ads on how to make money with BitCoin, LiteCoin, and countless other CryptoCurrency. 
Let me tell you, that's all bunk.  At the time of writing this blog, BitCoin is valued at 1btc = $883.95 USD.  True, the value of a BitCoin fluctuates quite a bit.  It's been as low as $0.05 USD and as high as $1500.00 USD.


Bitcoin

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and a payment system[14]:3 invented by an unidentified programmer, or group of programmers, under the name of Satoshi Nakamoto.[15] Bitcoin was introduced on 31 October 2008 to a cryptography mailing list,[16] and released as open-source software in 2009.[17] There have been various claims and speculation concerning the identity of Nakamoto, none of which are confirmed.[15] The system is peer-to-peer and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary.[14]:4 These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called the blockchain,[18] which uses bitcoin as its unit of account. Since the system works without a central repository or single administrator, the U.S. Treasury categorizes bitcoin as a decentralized virtual currency.[11] Bitcoin is often called the first cryptocurrency,[19][20][21] although prior systems existed[note 4] and it is more correctly described as the first decentralized digital currency.[14][25] Bitcoin is the largest of its kind in terms of total market value.[26]
Bitcoins are created as a reward in a competition in which users offer their computing power to verify and record bitcoin transactions into the blockchain. This activity is referred to as mining and successful miners are rewarded with transaction fees and newly created bitcoins.[14]:5–7 Besides being obtained by mining, bitcoins can be exchanged for other currencies,[27] products, and services.[28] When sending bitcoins, users can pay an optional transaction fee to the miners.[29] This may expedite the transaction being confirmed.
In February 2015, the number of merchants accepting bitcoin for products and services passed 100,000.[30] Instead of 2–3% typically imposed by credit card processors, merchants accepting bitcoins often pay fees in the range from 0% to less than 2%.[31] Despite the fourfold increase in the number of merchants accepting bitcoin in 2014, the cryptocurrency did not have much momentum in retail transactions.[32] The European Banking Authority[33] and other sources[14]:11 have warned that bitcoin users are not protected by refund rights or chargebacks.
The use of bitcoin by criminals has attracted the attention of financial regulators,[34] legislative bodies,[35] law enforcement,[36] and media.[37] Criminal activities are primarily focused on darknet markets and theft, though officials in countries such as the United States also recognize that bitcoin can provide legitimate financial services.[35]
 It's only a matter of time until BitCoin is traded on all the major Stock Markets, and accepted as a legitimate currency.

There are many vendors around the world that already accept Bitcoin as an option to pay.  Many of those vendors are storefronts.  Brick and Mortar stores.  Not just online, although that's where the vast majority of them are, currently. 





Value forecasts

Financial journalists and analysts, economists, and investors have attempted to predict the possible future value of bitcoin. In April 2013, economist John Quiggin stated, "bitcoins will attain their true value of zero sooner or later, but it is impossible to say when".[182] A similar forecast was made in November 2014 by economist Kevin Dowd.[195]
In December 2013, finance professor Mark T. Williams forecast that bitcoin would trade for less than $10 by mid-year 2014.[196] In the indicated period bitcoin has exchanged as low as $344 (April 2014) and during July 2014 the bitcoin low was $609.[45][197] In December 2014, Williams said, "The probability of success is low, but if it does hit, the reward will be very large."[198]
In November 2014, David Yermack, Professor of Finance at New York University Stern School of Business, forecast that in November 2015 bitcoin may be all but worthless.[199] In the indicated period bitcoin has exchanged as low as $176.50 (January 2015) and during November 2015 the bitcoin low was $309.90.[45]
In May 2013, Bank of America FX and Rate Strategist David Woo forecast a maximum fair value per bitcoin of $1,300.[200] Bitcoin investor Cameron Winklevoss stated in December 2013 that the "small bull case scenario for bitcoin is... 40,000 USD a coin".[201]

Now, my experiment is thus:  Below you will find a QR link to my BitCoin Wallet, and an HTML link to it, as well.  If everyone who reads this blog, and is currently a BitCoin Miner, or a Bitcoin user, I ask you to transfer a small amount to my wallet.  I currently use a small BitCoin ASIC miner, and would A: like to upgrade it, and B: would like to use the extra BitCoin to invest in this blog.  To be able to do more research, and be able to spend more time working on blog posting.  Make sense?

Thanks you for reading, thank you for sharing whatever BitCoin you can, and thank you very much for sharing this blog on your favorite Social Media sites.

Just In Time For Christmas - IDENTIFICATION DOCUMENTS!!



That´s what I call old school, 9/11 style terror fear spreading...

After they had to admit that they have the wrong person arrested, after they had to admit that the real perpetrator is still on the run, armed and dangerous, now suddenly "our protectors" found IDENTIFICATION DOCUMENTS in that truck. And I thought these times were over, because the passport stories got too old. I thought we were at "last wills on the home pc of the terrorist", left "IS" flags and "credible" stuff like that.
You live and learn...

It's good that nobody has the idea now that "our protectors" needed a success, as fast as possible, by hook or by crook. But really, now suddenly they find IDENTIFICATION DOCUMENTS. Why do they use the oldest and most
unbelievable story of all "terror evidence" stories, right when they need a success? Why didn´t the forensics team find it when they searched the truck for hours at the spot where everything happened??? Because the driver cab of that truck was bigger than the biggest truck cabin ever?


Why should a terrorist run around with any papers, if they aren't faked? And why the hell do they seem to lose them every time at the spots were they did their attack? Too much of a coincidence, if one asks me...


"Funny" thing now is, the whole MSM is going postal:
"They know who it is", "They found identification documents of the Muslim Kleve", say his name again(I don´t do that any more) plus that they show the picture, coincidentally a not nice looking person, sure with beard and long hair, of the alleged terrorist... While "our protectors" allegedly are preparing a raid in Kleve to arrest that terrorist. Because they have no TV in Kleve... So it is not possible that all that warns the alleged perpetrator?


Really, in the beginning of all that I thought it was possible that it really was a religious nut. But now, after the "protectors" suddenly found identification documents...
Come on Big Brother, I am pretty sure you can do that better!


But I guess the rulers don´t care anymore if something is credible, logically, believable. It seems they have to hurry up with building their defence line, the censoring Big Brother Police State. Because they maybe know that the next revolution of the people is imminent, and this will not be a peaceful revolution, I am afraid. And the rulers are too!
It´s them that are feared (of the revenge of the people, of losing power), so they have to play the most evil games of them all.


It´s not simple people that light the world on every corner. And put oil into these fires, after that! It´s not simple people that have to work in secrecy, hidden from the public, "only for the best of the people, their security"...


Now the Germans (and by extension, the world) get fooled live again, from the "warriors against all evil on earth"!
 At most against the self created, self funded and supported till today Muslim terrorists, that are a wonderful bogeyman to let Big Brother grow, while evil Superputin is used for the rest.



Oh Big Brother, I here you coming with big, huge steps...

Why Do We Fall For FAKE NEWS??


I recently read an article about how the news (albeit 100% fake) is pushed down the throats not only of Americans, but most English speaking people.  How we're fed lie after lie about things that are happening on the other side of the planet, and unless the average citizen does some hardcore fact-checking, has no reason to dispute what is printed.


NYT Fake News on Aleppo

Written by Subject: Syria NYT Fake News on Aleppo

by Stephen Lendman

Daily NYT editions read like bad fiction, showing contemptible disregard for truth-telling, entirely absent where it's most needed - fake news substituting.

Coverage of America's presidential campaign turned The Times into a laughing stock, featuring advocacy instead of unbiased reporting. 

The so-called newspaper of record is a national disgrace, notably when America goes to war or plans one, supporting imperial aggression instead of denouncing it.

Its Syrian war coverage is abominable - all fake news all the time, including the just concluded battle for Aleppo. On December 13, it headlined "Assad's Lesson From Aleppo: Force Works, With Few Consequences," saying:

"For months, the bodies have been piling up in eastern Aleppo as the buildings have come down, pulverized by Syrian and Russian jets, burying residents who could not flee in avalanches of bricks and mortar."

Fact: "Russian and Syrian jets" suspended bombing eastern Aleppo in mid-October. No "bodies have been piling up" in streets, ICRC representatives on the ground confirming it.

The Times: "Cold, hungry and scarred by the deaths of loved ones, tens of thousands of civilians and fighters are awaiting buses to take them from their homes to uncertain futures."

Fact: Evacuation of all eastern Aleppo residents was completed on Friday. They're safe for the first time in four-and-a-half years - given hot food and medical care as needed, grateful to Syrian forces for freeing them from captivity, held under brutalizing conditions as human shields by US-supported terrorists.

The Times: "This is the Middle East that President-elect Donald J. Trump will face upon taking office next year, a region where jihadists have erased borders, Russia is ascendant, Iran has extended its reach through powerful militias and American allies are questioning how much they can rely on Washington."

Fact: America created and supports "jihadists" in Syria and elsewhere. Russia, Iran and Hezbollah intervened responsibly to combat them, at Assad's request. 

Wherever "Washington" shows up, mass slaughter, destruction and unspeakable human misery follow. It remains to be seen if Trump intends another way, or whether he'll continue imperial madness.

The Times: "The siege and bombardment of Aleppo…came after years of conflict in which Mr. Assad's forces attacked protesters, dropped exploding barrels on rebellious communities and used chemical weapons on their own people."

Fact: What rubbish! Liberating Aleppo involved a carefully planned military operation, waged against the scourge of US-supported terrorists - monsters responsible for gruesome atrocities, including cold-blooded murder, torture and use of chemical weapons.

Syria destroyed its CW stockpile under supervision of Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons ' representatives. No evidence links its forces with their use. Claims otherwise are fake news.

The Times: "The Syrian conflict did not begin as a civil war but as a popular uprising aimed at ousting Mr. Assad. He responded to protests with gunfire, detentions and torture. Many in the opposition took up arms to defend themselves and fight back…"

Fact: Syria is Obama's war, orchestrated by Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, naked aggression against a sovereign independent country threatening no one.

A so-called "popular uprising" was staged, orchestrated in Washington, a pretext to launch naked aggression. No civil war exists, imported death squads used as imperial foot soldiers.

The Times is an instrument of state-sponsored propaganda - featuring fake news instead of the real thing. Abandon it or stay misinformed. The goes for all media scoundrels.

Also reading other 'uncompromised' News outlets (Not North American Mainstream Media), this was learned:

On December 16, the Russian military announced that eastern Aleppo had been fully liberated from militants and terrorists. However, according to Moscow, Syrian government forces are still fighting “isolated pockets of militant resistance.”

Nearly 3,500 militants from eastern Aleppo have surrendered to the Syrian government, while thousands have seized the chance to leave through special corridors with light weapons. The evacuation was partly halted on Friday after militants tried to leave the city with heavy weapons, which is not permitted under the agreement allowing them to exit eastern Aleppo.
Konashenkov (Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov),
On December 16, the Russian military announced that eastern Aleppo had been fully liberated from militants and terrorists. However, according to Moscow, Syrian government forces are still fighting “isolated pockets of militant resistance.”

  .
Konashenkov noted that the liberation of Aleppo had effectively opened a new “window of opportunity” to introduce a cessation of hostilities, “not only in the Aleppo province,” but also in other regions of Syria, while stressing that “a desire to negotiate with all parties to the conflict directly ‘on the ground,’ except for terrorist groups,” is key to speeding up the peace process in the war-ravaged state.
Attempts to replace this “hard work” with conferences in “cozy Western capitals,” talking to “high representative committees,” or sending in some monitoring group is “useless and a dead end,” he said.
“The sooner it is realized in Paris, London, and Washington, which are so far not even capable of sending humanitarian aid to Syria, the sooner there will be peace,” Konashenkov concluded.

I'll bet you won't hear that on the 6 o'clock news tonight.

FAKE NEWS: U.S. Officials: Putin Personally Involved in U.S. Election Hack



Trusty ol' NBC has yet dumped another load of FAKE NEWS on America:  That there is now PROOF that Russia was behind the DNC hacks.  Just watch:



The obvious trouble with this story is:  Who leaked it to the press, and what's the damning evidence?  Just telling us that there is 'evidence', shouldn't be enough for anyone to accept.  Where is the
smoking gun?  Why is God's name would Vlad Putin get personally involved?  Don't you think he has more important things to do....?  Maybe running the largest country in the world?







A little bit of light reading posted just today, January 15, 2016 by a much more reputable source:
DNC docs were leaked, not hacked, intelligence veterans say

Pass this around to your friends.... I'd love to hear their opinions.

Sean Hannity's message to the press: You've been exposed as fake



Mainstream Media just keeps taking hits.  Fox News reporter Sean Hannity seems to be the last of a dying breed.  By that I mean, a reporter who isn't a sheep.  A reporter with integrity, with no price tag on his name.

We (the conspiracy, tinfoil hat wearing freaks), have been saying just this for years now.  The mainstream media (MSM) is a greater propaganda machine than Joseph Goebbels.
I understand that the Leftists didn't want Donald Trump to win the Presidency.  After all, he's an outsider, that's been calling 'Bullshit' on pretty much everyone in Washington, and the majority of the MSM.  I suppose that's because they're afraid their secrets, and the power will get out.  After all, who wants the public to find out they've been lied to, and controlled for the last 240-ish years?

Lyn Ulbricht on Corrupt Federal Agents Involved in Silk Road



As you likely know by now, Shaun Bridges, a Secret Service agent who was involved in the investigation and arrest of Ross Ulbricht, is under suspicion for the theft of even more bitcoin. In a document, unsealed on the 30th of July, we found out that he helped himself again, to more than $700,000 worth of Bitcoin that was already in a Secret Service account. Much of this corruption was enabled by the government’s poor handling of the case and knowledge that Bridges had a digital key that allowed him to have access to the account – yet they didn’t move the money until it was far too late. This same kind of corruption set the standard for the entire case against Ross Ulbricht, so Bitcoin.com reached out to Lyn Ulbricht, Ross’s mother, for comment. Some of the highlights are below.

 Judge Katherine Forrest clearly vocalized that she found the writings and beliefs of Ross to be “deeply troubling” and “very dangerous.” If you’ve been around since the beginning of the site itself, you’d probably have been aware that Dread Pirate Roberts was a strong, vocal libertarian who made sure the community knew. In fact, his views were a huge part of the motivation behind the Silk Road.
Something that likely has no place in a case involving drugs is the defendant’s political views. Unfortunately for Ross, his political views not only came into view, but also impacted the way he was sentenced. His mother mentions how


Lyn talks about how there were several individuals who got picked up on drug charges involving the Silk Road, but none of them ended up getting as much time as Ross did. Three noteworthy arrests were Jan Slomp, the leading vendor on Silk Road, Steven Sadler, the biggest cocaine and heroin vendor, and Peter Nash, a Silk Road admin. They received 10 years, 5 years, and 17 months respectively (source). Ulbricht was charged with money laundering, computer hacking, conspiracy to traffic narcotics, and a murder charge. Even though the murder charge was dropped, Ross Ulbricht was still given a life sentence without the possibility of parole. Even from the outside, this doesn’t seem like true justice. His mother says that both she and the defense strongly believe that Ross was treated and sentenced unfairly.


The judge made it clear that, at least in part, she issued her barbaric sentence because she considers Ross a political threat. The grotesque disparity between Ross’ sentence and those of the others finally convinced me that he is a political prisoner. The government wanted to make Ross an example, presumably to warn others from creating a similar site. (Of course, this failed, and there are many sites now in existence that are far bigger than Silk Road ever was).


Lyn Ulbricht on her son’s sentencing



Another point Lyn makes in the interview is that during Ross’s sentencing, the judge treated him the way she did because he was the first person to launch a drug market on the deep web. In the words of the judge, “what you did was unprecedented and in breaking that ground as the first person you sit here as the defendant now today having to pay the consequences for that.”

To summarize, Lyn Ulbricht wanted to convey a few thoughts to the world in regard to the most recent discovery of corruption in the Silk Road case.

  • The case was mishandled from the start.
  • Shaun Bridges had total control of the site and tampered with evidence, as proven twice now.
  • The prosecution has completely ignored the evidence manipulation and blatant mishandling of the case as a whole.
  • He was sentenced unfairly due to his political beliefs.
  • Ross was treated and sentenced unfairly because he was the creator of the first dark net market.


Both Lyn and Ross’s lawyer, Joshua Dratel, are far from surprised by the corruption, but are still fighting to have Ross treated fairly. Lyn doesn’t want this to take case to take precedence in situations where “Internet freedoms” and “victim-less crimes” end up in front of a judge.

The interview was fairly concise but the underlying theme was that the most recent bitcoin theft by the Secret Service agent just attests to the level of corruption and incompetence involved in prosecuting Ross Ulbricht.

ZEITGEIST



I just spent the last couple of days watching a couple of the ZEITGEIST movies.  I must say, regardless of your political, social, or religious views, this is a MUST SEE for everyone on the planet.  Which is why I'm going to post TWO of those movies right here on my blog.  I ask, no, I BEG you to share this with your friends on every social medium you use.

  Both of these movies explore how fraudulent MONEY is... which ads a certain amount of credit to the BITCOIN movement....  It's something everyone can have....  either by paying for it, with your debt-laden money, or mine it for free.  Essentially, it's a FREE currency.




The ZEITGEIST Movement is exactly what I've been saying on my many posts....  Although many of the statistics in the movies are American based, I suspect they reign true for most nations of the world.









If you have ever watched STAR TREK (and I know many of you have), that encompasses the perfect society.  Not with the space travel, but with Earth.  No money.  Everyone is equal. 



Be the movement.  Join the movement.  Share the movement.

Knowledge is power.  Arm yourself.
