Just a friendly reminder to pay your taxes, and one thing you can do before year-end to reduce your tax burden (For those subject to US tax law)

Hello ethtrader! My name is Scott Stevens, I am a practicing ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) and I hate paying taxes! Unfortunately, for US citizens and those subject to US tax law. . . we gotta.
All the recent price action has caught the attention of the general public, the media, and unfortunately the IRS. As usual, they will be looking to take their cut. Additionally, with the recent passage of the Republican tax bill, one key tax loophole has been closed, the "1031 exchange." This is a provision that allows for "like kind" exchanges of property. While cryptocurrency is considered property by the IRS, the new tax bill clarifies states that starting in 2018, that 1031 exchanges are valid exclusively for real estate. What this means is that every single cryptocurrency trade we make is a potentially taxable event.
Edit: There is some debate about whether 1031 exchanges are valid for crypto before the new tax provision kicks in. My opinion is that it is unlikely that the IRS considers them valid. This is only my opinion; I"m not trying to "trick" people into supporting my cause by stating this.
For anyone who has made significant profits this year, it will be far easier to pay the piper now rather than face the penalties and interest the IRS will assess later. There are certainly ways you could try to skirt around the IRS, through Monero or Zcash or any number of ways to obfuscate your trades. But the bottom line is that if you end up cashing out into fiat into any traditional banking system, even years down the road, there will be questions about where the money came from, and you will be required to document it. If you've made any significant profit, you can spend years looking over your shoulder and worrying, or you can accept the reality of "death and taxes." Bitcoin.tax has some great resources, including a directory of professionals that can help you with your individual situation.
The good news is that you can do some good in the world, and reduce your tax liability at the same time by donating cryptocurrency to charity! By donating an appreciated asset, such as stock shares, real estate, or cryptocurrency, you do not realize any capital gains on the donation, and receive a tax deduction for your donation.
As a small holder of multiple "altcoins," I've been frustrated by the lack of options to donate anything but Bitcoin and Ethereum to most major charities. Certainly it is simple to trade altcoins into Bitcoin or Eth, and then donate those, but the trade to convert my altcoins then becomes taxable, and I do not get the same reduction in tax basis compared to as if I had donated the altcoin directly.
For that reason, I've created my own non-profit entity, Blockchain Benevolence, with the hope of being able to accept nearly any cryptocurrency as a donation. We will use these donations to fund cataract surgeries in third world countries, including Ethiopia, Nepal, India, Bhutan, Myanmar, Rwanda, and Ghana. The supplies to perform a single life-changing surgery in one of these countries costs only $25. Cataracts are the worlds leading cause of preventable blindness, and a simple 10-15 minute procedure can literally change someone's life overnight. We are working closely with an existing organization, the Himalayan Cataract Project. Donations we receive will be used to purchase the supplies for surgery, which will be routed through their existing network to those in need. The HCP has been featured on 60 minutes, Vice, and has won several awards for their work.
I am not soliciting for donations at this time- this nonprofit was only incorporated a few months ago and we do not yet have 501(c)3 status from the IRS. Our application for this is in, but it is a process that can take from 3-18 months. Until we have that status, donations will not be tax-deductible.
However, The Himalayan Cataract Project does have 501(c)3 status, and is able to accept donations directly. I have been helping them set up the ability to accept crypto donations, and they will be able to accept BTC, ETH, and LTC.
DM me here or email at blockchainbenevolence @gmail.com for more information, or if you are interested in donating to the Himalayan Cataract Project! Remember, for your donation to be tax deductible for 2017's taxes, your donation has to be in before year-end.

Death, Bitcoin, and Taxes

Death, Bitcoin, and Taxes submitted by Vincentzandri to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

For inheritance and estate planning purposes, is Bitcoin considered "money in the bank" and subject to taxes and outstanding debts before distribution to beneficiaries on death? [US]

An elderly relative is doing some financial planning in advance of passing away, and is interested in putting a relatively small amount of money (USD$10,000) into a cryptocurrency like bitcoin.
I have the sense that part of the objective is to reduce the exposure to taxes and potential end of life expenses (hospice, nursing home) on inheritance, as opposed to regular money in the regular bank.
As I understand it, regular money in the regular bank can be "taken" to pay debts and expenses of the deceased (or disabled) before inheritance distributions are made.
So is Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency up for grabs just like regular money in the bank?
Second question: if it turns out that digital assets are exposed for those kinds of things, what can the state even do about it if the cryptocurrency owner hasn't revealed their private key in their will? The state cannot compel a bitcoin exchange to give them the bitcoin as cryptocurrency doesn't even make that technically feasible.

$40 Million in Bitcoin Gone?

Friend of mine offered me $25,000 cash if i find out where his bitcoin are. His story is that in 2011 or 2012 him and his father bought some long shot investments through a paper company (99 shares him, 1 share his father) and he chose bitcoin. His dad passed away a couple years after that and his sister was granted power of attorney to liquidate the fathers investments. Anyway, she has been very cagey about where the bitcoin are. The regular bank they dealt with said they didnt offer bitcoin as an investment so they forwarded him off to a broker in Calgary Alberta. I cant find any record of anyone who dealt with bitcoin way back then. Its my understanding you had to have an actual wallet file on your harddrive, or you went through an online wallet company. Many of those are defunct and the money gone forever. Given his sisters reluctance to provide any information as to what happened to the investment account from this broker, and her many changing answers to the same question, he's under the impression she either has the coins/wallet file or she sold them upon the death of the father. Apparently hes convinced he has 30-40 million dollars sitting somewhere in a bitcoin wallet.
My question is basically what original web wallets existed back in 2012ish and which ones if any are still active. Also, if anyone knows of a broker who dealt with bitcoin in Canada way back then. I already know the answer is likely that the coins are gone forever, but thought i'd post here. I suggested he get a lawyer to write a stern letter to the sister trying to get more information as to what happened to the fathers accounts/bitcoin but he's broke and owes back taxes to the CRA as well. The CRA was told about the bitcoin back then as they suggested to sell them to pay the back taxes, but the sister wouldnt provide the information my friend wanted. Any thoughts?

“You cant ban Bitcoin” this is the common phrase I hear

All US government has to do is sanction and fine every bank that allows withdraws to crypto exchanges. This will dry up liquidity as no new fiat will enter the space. Congress could also tax crypto long term capital gains at 90% and also implement a “holding tax” per year. This would kill Bitcoin and all cryptocurrencies.
No liquidity- no market. Once bank services are eliminated Bitcoin price collapses 90%. This causes miners to become unprofitable and shutdown which creates a death spiral.
The government will seize any hard sound money and drive it out of the market because it does not serve their agenda. The government must control where capital flows or it has no power.
I fully 100% believe the US government will successfully kill crypto.
Oh and I don’t think it’ll come to this but if need be the US government can just make it a crime to hold BTC and because it isn’t private at all and most exchanges are KYC your identity is already tied to your associated wallets. 1-2 year jail time should do the trick.

Wonder Meat! (Unofficial Epilogue to End by NotARobot59)

Spencer Kilkenny was a conspiracy theorist and all around nutjob, doomsday prepper, bootlegger and man of the woods.
He was considered by many to be a loon and not a man to take serious.
That was until FluffZ and it’s outbreak which ultimately led to the destruction of all known fluffies.
And then he became a fountain of knowledge. Everyone wanted to know what he thought and how he lived his life.
The public distrusted corporations following the actions of the now-defunct hasbio and there was a lot distrust in corporations and government altogether.
And that wasn’t the worst of it. With all fluffies gone a lot of people went redundant, there was a mass of job losses. The food industry greatly suffered as a result and the niche farmers who raised cows, chickens and other food animals couldn’t produce enough to sate the public’s hunger for meat.
The fluffy was after all the perfect animal to produce into cheap food. The era of affordable, cheap meat was now gone. And the public could not face the reality of eating carrots.
A solution had to be found. But why was Spencer so important you ask?
Spencer was a proud libertarian and he believed in the free market. He made little complaints when he made money and lost money. Bitcoin was a valuable lesson. He learned to invest in physical commodities.
He didn’t trust corporations or governments and he certainly didn’t pay his fair share of taxes! (To him, zero was a fair share)
Spencer owned the (now) largest collection of fluffies in the world and no one knew about them. Unregulated, un-neutered fluffies “playing” freely in their filth as they were intended. All kept in small pens and fed hay and crap on his estate in Appalachia.
No one came up there, no one said a thing. Everyone distrusted government here. They took their money and what did they have to show for it?
Spencer was no slacker. And he was no rube neither. Everyone was begging for meat, and affordable meat at that, he put out some feelers on the dark web.
And someone took his bait.
A company wanted to produce cloned meat, lab grown in a test tube that was 100% cruelty free and sustainable. Ultimately something that grew quick and something that could be used to save the food industry.
Other specimens took a while to grow into something you could put out en masse for mass production. But there was another type of meat that grew quicker. Mainly as it was artificial to begin with.
Two suits and a lot of rubes met up with Spencer. He didn’t dress for the occasion and he kept tobacco and a shotgun by his side. He had a talent for sniffing out rubes and he knew he could always make money from white collars. Dressing like this gave him the advantage of allowing them to under-estimate him. They were looking at a regular old hillbilly here.
Until he negotiated a big pay out for half of his fluffies and a share in the company if it took off as they had intended.
This was the largest payout for a collection of fluffies in history. And no one could talk about it.
Spencer went away a satisfied man. The fluffies that he gave away were packed tightly into the truck to take them. They thought they were free. They cheered when they could finally move their legs properly but they were all packed in tighter than their pens. And then it went dark. It was far too scary.
And the fluffies were given a new home in a warehouse designed like a barn. The conditions here were much more sanitary than back at Spencer’s estate. A few of them died during the journey, a few of them died during cleaning! There were a lot of dismissals. This was one of the rare times anyone was ever fired for harming a fluffy. Of course, they had never been this valuable.
No one would know it would be fluffy meat either! Labelled as Wonder Meats, this cloned meat would be the saviour of the food industry and a welcome return to affordable food.
And a few of the fluffies were dissected and studied. Their genetics worked out to map how to grow their meat in a test tube.
All of the fluffies were pin-pricked every day for their boo-boo juice. There were a lot of tears and a lot of flinching. They came to understand they needed to give it to stay at the barn. They didn’t know why the Daddehs needed it. They were given sugary drinks, salads, and even fluffy meat that had been grown to feed on.
The fluffy meat was edible and fluffies, notorious for their poor digestion and inability to draw nutrients from food, were able to digest it and looked healthier. It looked like the meat would be a success after all!!
The genetics were worked out and the bio-samples taken to produce more Wonder Meat.
The fluffies were no longer needed. And the evidence destroyed in a large fire. The fluffies could not escape. They were trapped in their pens and as they were surrounded by flammable material, they would also be tinder for the flames.
Spencer would also get a visit from unwanted and unwelcome guests…….no one must know how they got hold of the fluffy samples.
And Wonder Meat was released to the public at large. And was a success.
The food industry was revived, people were able to buy cheap, affordable food, jobs were saved.
And best of all, no trace of the FluffZ virus…………..
Until a man took ill. His face twisted and spasmed like a seizure, his mouth frothed and his body jerked and lost control, he became suddenly very violent.
And with a painful erection that wouldn’t go down.
This was the first recorded case of Murder Boner in months!! Where were the fluffies?
And then there were more outbreaks. And more people became uncontrollable and violent killing themselves.
The streets literally flowed with blood.
But where were the fluffies?!
And as it turned out, no one knew the virus had evolved. The tests at Wonder Meat confirmed that there was no trace of the virus in their samples.
No one knew it came from the unclean slaughterhouses, kitchens and other places fluffies and fluffy meat had been stored. These places did not follow the rules behind cleaning and testing for traces of the virus.
Everyone thought the virus died with fluffies and the death of all fluffies ended it.
But here it was and it had found a new home. Here to stay.
And now it was in the Wonder Meat.
And it was now in the bodies of every human who had consumed it.
The fluffies had unintentionally doomed us all even when they weren’t around anymore.
Fucking Fluffies……...

Consortium>Elite>Fed/Bankers>Military Industrial Complex>Corporate Industries>Rulers>Media, Entertainment>Workers>Children>Retired, Disabled, Sick, Unemployed

Are you ready to really wake up? Then you must fathom the nature of our peril, and the plots against us. Understanding the state of the world today begins with understanding the pecking order, and how far down we are in both power and freedom. Though many people live under the illusion that we are all equal, nothing could be further from the truth. Let me describe each level of their pyramid power structure.
CONSORTIUM
The Consortium exploits the minor differences between us: race, religion, sex, age, and nationality, in order to separate us and keep us from working together against them. It is a false choice, because we are ALL humans. We all live under the thumb of a hidden Consortium full of many species of aliens profiting off of us in every way.
We have spoken here and on the reptiliandude forum about these aliens at length. The main points to realize is that they have been with us all along, influencing and manipulating, they live for thousands of our years and are a million years ahead of us. It seems pretty bleak, yet we have alien allies who help us and the One God who loves us and intercedes on our behalf, so that gives us hope. There are about a million of them, but 7.5 billion of us. They have the tech, we have the numbers. And if we quit letting them turn us against one another for scraps tossed from their table, we just might win.
ELITE
The elite are a combination of well positioned humans and mentally overwritten ones puppeted by the Kayeen. Each year, more and more elderly and dying Kayeen lying in vats on their home planets cherry pick humans to wear like a suit. By using particle entanglement to overwrite infants in utero, their memories are gradually activated until the child is fully overwritten. They also try to cut corners and overwrite adults at times, but the older the humans are, the less effective it is. Dementia, death or schizophrenia can result when they detach. These wealthy elites leave trust funds of their money to their children and grandchildren, and detach and overwrite subsequent generations when the bodies they use wear out.
The well positioned humans are usually wealthy, educated at elite universities, part of secret societies, foundations, and leading international financial institutions. They are invite only groups who congregate on islands, compounds, bunkers and resorts to get their marching orders from the Consortium. These elite are typically sociopaths picked from childhood and groomed. They had powerful mentors.
These elite are bribed with sexual temptations, like pedophilia, financial rewards and power. In exchange, they sign do not disclose agreements and in effect, sell out humanity, even lead in the efforts to manipulate, experiment, exploit or kill us. If they waiver, they are threatened, as are their families. Sex tapes are filmed of illegal or humiliating encounters that could destroy the reputations of the elite if made public, so they comply.
FED/BANKERS
The Federal Reserve, International Monetary Fund, Foundations, Internatuonal Banks, Financial Consultants and Intetnational Investment Firms are the most powerful corporations in the world. They have pushed for the new world order in order to lump us all together and dependent on them for all monies. They seek deregulation, monopolization and government backed security for their greedy international schemes. Trillions of dollars has been forked over to them, especially in times of war or crisis, payable by future taxpayers. When Covid hit, banks were paid FIRST.
They are not required to give much in the way of accountability. Their shareholders profit before their customers do. And when they make completely risky loans, they are bailed out by taxpayers. They win if we win and they win if we lose. Either way, none of them ever go to jail for their wrong doings since they are protected by the elite.
Their goal is to profit no matter what, control the masses through a digital currency they can freeze or remove from bank accounts at will. Contagions on dollars will be the excuse to go digital federally, then internationally. If we accept this, we will be chipped to participate, then become wage slaves dependent on social compliance to gain access to our own money.
Other forms of currency are our best hope to delay them financial power over us, such as gold/silver, bitcoin, land, and trade. The independent and self employed have the most adaptability right now. Everyone else needs to look for alternative means to earn or trade.
MILITARY/INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
Eisenhower warned of this great threat. Kennedy tried to disable it but was murdered. All political leaders have had to give in to it in some way and conduct their wars. Why? Because wars are not only profitable, but they reduce overpopulation. They allow the power of the elites to be reshuffled when they start getting demanding, or not complying. And most of all, they gather munitions for future wars against our own people in support of Consortium objectives.
Think of every industry that profits during wars, and their lobbyists who buy and pressure politicians. Guns, munitions, chemicals, tech, uniforms, supplies, meds, hospitals, food, you name it, they are part of it. And all of them want to profit. Propaganda and lies are spread to control the narrative of the latest enemies or terrorists they want us to fight. Military used not only for defense, but expansion, control and conquest under the term "democracy" has continued in civilization after civilization. The ones in power considered themselves the "good guys", while the ones seeking to displace them, or even reject them, are marked as enemies. And so it goes, administration after administration. Because we must always have an excuse to shoot those not cooperating with Consortium profit and control objectives.
We could just stop warring. We've done it before when we demanded to leave the war in Vietnam. But then we also must quit telling other nations who to elect and who to reject. Our CIA and other spy agencies are part of the military/industrial complex, and they must be muzzled too. The people of a nation should not serve as fodder for military and corporate objectives. The police, national guard and military services are all humans, as powerless as individuals and the people they intend to support. Let us all keep that in mind and reject the manufactured conflicts spread via lies and propaganda to separate us.
CORPORATE INDUSTRIES
Jobs. They have them. We want them. We work hard to afford to live and raise families. Right now, many of them are tightening their belts to survive, meaning our jobs are not secure. They have all the power, we do not. There have been times when we've gathered against them and they have given in to us after we were outraged. Unions formed. Laws were passed demanding oversight, compliance, taxes and accountability. Workers demanded benefits, better hours and wages.
But then a war, natural disaster or calamity like a pandemic comes along and all advancements are reduced, if not eliminated. So industries get artificially propped up with bail outs, reduced compliance and tax free opportunities. Meanwhile the workers lose, and lose big. You know who doesn't lose? CEOs and investors, because most of them are the elites. How else can we have only a quarter of us working, no growth at all, and yet the stock market is soaring? Because corporate industries and investors are enjoying the trillions of dollars they received along with loan forbearance or interest free loans.
Corporations have power as long as we defer to them. You might even admit that the U S. is now a corporate oligarchy. They will pay workers as little as possible, market to consumers non-stop and keep holding out their hands for more money. They lose power when we quit buying their products and start growing or making our own supplies. Nobody needs all the stuff we've bought. And if we work for ourselves, they can't make us do anything. Keep that in mind.
RULERS
We all have them, either elected, appointed or acquired via royal birth or totalian regime. Most have clawed their way to power and don't give it up easily. Sometimes they move laterally and bide their time until they regain power. But most are bought and paid for by the billionaire elites or lobbyists or corporate sponsors. That's why they have the best healthcare, retirement packages and benefits. They may start out idealistic and hopeful, but if they've been around very long, they've joined the corruption that has grown every year. Most don't even try to pretend anymore. They blatantly and arrogantly tell you what to do or think and demand fealty of us as if we are peasants and they the Lords of the manor.
Only large group protests affect them, for they fear the mobs most of all. So gathering en mass requires a worthy cause, otherwise, the resultant crack down that eventually comes with anarchy will have made the effort ineffective. Beware the infiltrators and secret tellers who corrupt worthy causes and manipulate them to serve alternate agendas.
MEDIA, ENTERTAINMENT
Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies. But they do lie, exaggerate, tell half-truths, provide alternate facts, and biased ones. Most media and entertainment people are liberal in comparison to the masses they are trying to influence toward their corporate/political/elite/Consortium goals. Everything you watch on tv or movies is trying to soothe or manipulate you into accepting their point of view, which is always present. Commercials also blatantly influence to push their wares. The message is: do what we suggest if you want happiness. Don't do what we suggest if you want sadness. It's pretty simple, said in metaphor, story and song. And it is exhausting. They are making us fat, dumb, lazy and indebted consumers, and we're letting them.
PEOPLE
Workers are more valuable than non-workers. Children are more valuable than elderly, sick or unemployed. The bottom of power lies in those who receive benefits without continuing to contribute to them, regardless if you contributed in the past. There is no better way to push people off the dole than for them to die, either through sickness, starvation, pestilence or war.
As far as the Connsortium elite are concerned, children are a commodity, useful for blood/organs/sexual perversions, overwriting or future debt workers. That is what they want from us. Work hard and long hours, be too tired to fight tyranny, enjoy distractions while decisions are made that reduce your options. That is how they control, for profit and life extension. We are given busy work to do while they harvest us using grey synths that alter us and grab, then return us while we sleep. They dump contagions on us that cull the bottom level of us, considered useless, while providing new immunities in the rest of us for them to sell around the universe. It is appalling.
We do not have to remain product. Knowledge is power. RESIST!!!

What A Day: Stitt Down And Shut Up by Sarah Lazarus & Crooked Media (07/15/20)

"If it’s Goya, it has to be good." - Ivanka Trump, violating federal ethics rules

Bean Here Before

With hospitals filling up and businesses shutting back down across wide swaths of the country, the Trump administration seems to have no pandemic strategy beyond sowing confusion and flogging beans.
Meanwhile, life comes at you fast.
The Trump administration condemned the country to a second surge of infections by refusing to coordinate a national response, leaving even the best state leaders to adopt piecemeal solutions by trial and error. Rather than try a different tack the second time around, Trump has committed to undermining widely trusted health experts and hiding the data that makes even those local decisions possible.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

Last week the Adopt a State program sent out our first Call to Action emails, and (without a hint of bias here) Florida crushed it. Team Florida has already raised upwards of $42k to support a Virtual Voter Registration Program—that will help reach 400,000 Floridians, which could cover Trump's margin of victory almost four times over.
We'll be sending each state team new calls to action every week via email, so keep checking your inbox and getting those actions done. And if you haven’t already signed up, head on over to https://votesaveamerica.com/adopt and join the thousands of volunteers looking to flip some swing states.

Under The Radar

The new head of the Postal Service has implemented major operational changes that could slow down mail delivery. Postmaster General and Trump donor Louis DeJoy instructed employees to leave mail behind at distribution centers as needed to avoid delaying mail carriers from completing their routes, a change from postal workers’ traditional mandate to not leave letters behind for the next day. DeJoy cited the agency’s need to cut costs, but the decision could chase away more customers and put the Postal Service in a deeper financial hole. It could also prove disastrous in November, when voters could lose access to mail-in ballots due to slow delivery. The Treasury Department has continued to hold a $10 billion emergency loan hostage until USPS gives in to Trump’s political agenda, and Congress has yet to provide additional funding.

What Else?

President Trump’s lawyers have renewed their efforts to block the release of his tax returns, and now plan to argue that the Manhattan district attorney’s subpoena was too broad and politically motivated. While the Supreme Court slapped down Trump’s first legal claim, it left the door open for him to keep the returns in limbo indefinitely with fake new arguments.
Trump’s also not above straight up ignoring Supreme Court decisions. The administration is still rejecting new DACA applicants, in violation of last month’s ruling.
Some of the most high-profile accounts on Twitter were compromised by bitcoin scammers. Hackers took control of the accounts of Barack Obama, Jeff Bezos, Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Apple, and many more.
The largest U.S. banks have started stockpiling billions of dollars, reflecting their assumption that the recession won’t be easing anytime soon.
Jeff Sessions lost his Alabama Senate primary runoff to Tommy Tuberville, crushed under the presidential boots he never stopped licking Trump’s former physician Dr. Ronny Jackson won his GOP primary runoff for a Texas congressional seat, and Sara Gideon won the Democratic nomination to challenge Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME). In the grander scheme, there are now at least 11 GOP congressional nominees who support QAnon and Republican leaders are quietly backing them.
Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO) said Trump will be “getting involved” in the case of the McCloskeys, the St. Louis couple who pointed guns at Black Lives Matter protesters. Trump passionately defended them on Tuesday, and, in a separate interview, downplayed police violence against Black people and defended the Confederate flag.
Ghislaine Maxwell has a secret husband, according to prosecutors at her bail hearing. Maxwell pleaded not guilty and was denied release on bail.
ViacomCBS cut ties with Nick Cannon over antisemitic comments he made on a podcast.
Kanye West’s presidential campaign to help Donald Trump win re-election has come to end, according to his advisor, though he just made it onto the ballot in Oklahoma, so as with all Kanye news, who the heck knows.
Attn PBS millennials: A Wishbone movie is in development. Our generation has been saddled with two recessions, 9/11, and the worst public health crisis in 100 years, but by god, we still have a Jack Russell Terrier who loves to read.

Be Smarter

Fatal drug overdoses are likely surging during the pandemic. Drug deaths in the U.S. reached record numbers in 2019 after falling the year before, and the pandemic may be worsening the resurgence. A report in May found overdose rates have increased by an average of 20 percent across six states in 2020, and recent drug tests have found a substantial increase in illicit drug use, as well as a geographic spread of fentanyl. Overdoses were increasing before the pandemic, but it’s definitely not helping: Social isolation puts addicts at greater risk, treatment centers have been disrupted, and people who have overdosed are more likely to avoid emergency rooms out of fear of infection.

His dad passed away a couple years after that and his sister was granted power of attorney to liquidate the fathers investments. Anyway, she has been very cagey about where the bitcoin are. The regular bank they dealt with said they didnt offer bitcoin as an investment so they forwarded him off to a broker in Calgary Alberta. I cant find any record of anyone who dealt with bitcoin way back then. Its my understanding you had to have an actual wallet file on your harddrive, or you went through an online wallet company. Many of those are defunct and the money gone forever. Given his sisters reluctance to provide any information as to what happened to the investment account from this broker, and her many changing answers to the same question, he's under the impression she either has the coins/wallet file or she sold them upon the death of the father. Apparently hes convinced he has 30-40 million dollars sitting somewhere in a bitcoin wallet.
My question is basically what original web wallets existed back in 2012ish and which ones if any are still active. Also, if anyone knows of a broker who dealt with bitcoin in Canada way back then. I already know the answer is likely that the coins are gone forever, but thought i'd post here. I suggested he get a lawyer to write a stern letter to the sister trying to get more information as to what happened to the fathers accounts/bitcoin but he's broke and owes back taxes to the CRA as well. The CRA was told about the bitcoin back then as they suggested to sell them to pay the back taxes, but the sister wouldnt provide the information my friend wanted. Any thoughts?

Welcome to Freetown

It started with a sign. It stood at the entrance of the small community simple but clear:
Welcome to Freetown.
Enter only if you respect the Life, Liberty and Property of all here.
Murderers, thieves and tyrants will be shot.
The message was a practical one, not inspired by history or ideology but by clarity of purpose. It enumerated the things that would be defended with deadly force and warned away those that would harm them. As time went by and neighbours from time to time suggested alterations or additions to the sign it was always argued that brevity had power. It was unnecessary to explain in detail all the different types of property owned in the community and how it could be destroyed or stolen. It was understood by all what harm to life meant, what need was there to specify differences in degree between murder and assault. Liberty being a more philosophical concept was always harder to define, but all agreed that a good rule of thumb was that if someone came around telling anybody what to do with their property or their life shouldn’t be welcomed and, if telling escalated to threats or orders should promptly be shown the door.
In any case even given the small number of neighbours at the time there was never unanimity to change it. If it’s difficult to get a handful of people to agree to anything, it could only get harder as their number grew. Certainly many would have liked to add more rules. Most in the community were Christian and wouldn’t have looked askance at the ten commandments… but freedom of religion seemed to most an important part of Liberty. Remembering the Sabbath, honouring your parents and not coveting could surely be left to individual consciences, whereas stealing and killing were pretty clearly community problems. So after many arguments Life, Liberty and Property remained as the common denominators.
In time it grew to be a social contract of sorts, first in an unspoken, implicit way, but later it was written in the rules of the homeowners association which all new buyers and builders had to sign. So in many ways it was far more real a social contract and far more binding an agreement than any constitution ever approved by “representatives” but never actually accepted by the people, never mind all the people.
The sign also had a selective effect on new residents. Some did not like the idea of violence, even defensive violence and would rather not buy a house or live in a place that so overtly threatened. The idea of many of your neighbours being armed simply did not appeal to many. Others did not believe in private property, but those that would have unlawfully occupied empty houses thought twice when they saw the sign and headed for easier pickings. Of course there are plenty of rich communists and their lack of respect for private property never stopped them from personally owning it... but this was no luxury community, at least when it started, so politicians and bureaucrats were rare.
The first big change came in the police strike and riots. As cops were increasingly paid less, later and in depreciating currency they started to protest more, work less and turn back to some old ways of extortion. Mostly they just did not answer calls, but sometimes when they did they were expensive and less than helpful. So the community was quick to become self-reliant for protection, hiring a private guard for the main entrance and quickly coordinating a group of armed neighbours as backup should it be needed. When the first riots came more than a dozen neighbours stood behind the guard with enough weaponry in plain sight to deter anything short of an army. So the looting passed them by. Car burnings, break-ins, assaults and all types of chaos and vandalism happened in nearby neighbourhoods. The police were busy protesting for back pay. People took note. Similar signs started going up in many communities that had seen the difference between trusting authority and trusting your neighbours. One neighbourhood that actually shared the main road and access, simply asked to merge. Over the years the community would grow to ten times its size. However that was dwarfed by how far its example reached as thousands of neighbourhoods followed it. Actually the neighbours simply could not tell if they were being emulated… or if other people had just followed their own logic and reached similar common sense solutions to simple problems.
The second big change came with the banking crisis. As savings were wiped out first by deflation then by inflation the community, just as the rest of the country, had to start saving again from almost nothing. This time they would not make the same mistake again, they would not work tirelessly for years while trusting the government and banks to secure the currency and their savings. They began to use Bitcoin and physical gold for their savings so that they could be personally responsible for the security of their wealth. They discovered another advantage of personal responsibility: privacy. Eventually most trade was done in hard assets and again the example spread far. Government money, fiat money was only used to pay government services… and as the first depreciated the second kept losing quality. “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s” well fiat money most definitely belonged to the government and they were welcome to have it.
Some attempts were made by tax collectors to exact payments in hard assets and in some places they were allowed to do so. Others resisted with more or less force. Soon they learned which places to avoid for fear of tarring and feathering, or worse. Anyone who wanted to keep their property from the hands of the ever more rapacious and bankrupt government also learnt the lesson: keep your real assets in a Free Zone or lose them. It’s not that the government couldn’t muster, if pressed, the force to enter the a Free Zone and loot… but it was rare for a reason: Agents were unwilling to take risks for the meager pay they were receiving so the only way to make it worth their while was to let them share in the spoils. Any illusions that they were law enforcers went out the window after the first few times that happened. Honest cops quit. The ones still willing to loot were viewed by most citizens as what they were, a violent gang. They were too few and too cowardly to face any resistance.
Police reform would come too late. Private security backed by citizen militias would prove cheaper both in peaceful and violent times, as well as far more respectful of the Life, Liberty and Property of its customers.
Tax income withered. The death spiral was too fast and paralysing for the government to stop. The government would continue to pretend to offer services and a few people would pretend to pay for them. It would become obvious that there was nothing magical about a monopolistic administration that allowed it to build roads or schools more efficiently than local institutions, companies or communities. In fact it was hard to imagine how anybody had thought that the monopoly could ever do so with better quality than what consumers could expect from competing providers.
Some people rejected this way of doing things and formed their own socialistic communes, syndicates and associations. Many saw a kibbutz revival in the making. Did people in the Free zones object? No. Live and let live. If they want communal property they were welcome to share theirs… as long as they did not try to take ours. Unsurprisingly most people preferred not to live in a commune.
Localism, self-reliance and secure property rights eventually brought unprecedented prosperity, well-being and progress. But that was later, after we survived the invasion...

In 20 years, NANO still won't be a currency, but...

The Bad News: NANO will never be a currency in any country with a sovereign government. ever. no matter how much we ask vendors to use it or hold community meetings or make easier-to-use wallets. Why? (1) NANO is deflationary. People will not use a deflationary currency; they will hold it in speculation of future value. National currencies are all inflationary by design; inflation encourages the exchange of currency across the economy, which is healthy for economic growth. (2) No federal government will ever tolerate a digital currency that cannot be readily taxed. Look at China as peek into our future. The future of currency is most certainly digital, but it will be a centralized digital currency tendered and controlled by the federal government. "Talk to vendors you use about accepting payments in NANO" is a futile, damaging, worthless effort.
The Even Badder News: Right now, NANO is slowly marching to its death. If Bitcoin or another store of value token implements network improvements that drastically increase transfer speed and decrease transfer cost before NANO establishes itself as a legitimate digital store of value, this "currency" will absolutely die.
The Good News: NANO, in metrics of transfer speed, transfer costs, and network bandwidth, is VASTLY superior to any other store of value token out there. And it's ready - right NOW. Bitcoin is years away from fully implementing lightning network solutions. BCH, Litecoin, and other store of value coins are in the same boat. NANO has an opportunity to establish itself, long-term, as another digital store of value, competitive with Bitcoin.
The Way Forward: NANO has to be seen as (1) fully decentralized and (2) as secure as Bitcoin. It needs to be audited, again and again and again. It needs to be attacked in hackathon events. It needs to prove itself to the wider audience (see: American crypto exchange owners) as fully decentralized and secure. NANO has to find itself on Coinbase and Gemini based upon its merits as a store of value. In the next five years, NANO must position itself to be seen as a viable alternative to Bitcoin - it must compete against the prime mover advantage for legitimacy on the world stage as a digital store of value asset or it will doubtlessly die.

What A Day: Kemporary Insanity by Sarah Lazarus & Crooked Media (07/16/20)

"I don’t have Bitcoin, and I’ll never ask you to send me any." - Joe Biden, with the most keepable promise of his campaign to date

Why Can't ICU

Multiple states are poised to run out of hospital beds and supplies, the White House has seized control of new hospitalization data, and some Republican leaders are still actively thwarting measures that keep people out of the hospital. What could go wrong?
Outside the White House, some Republicans have read the polls and opted to rescind whatever loyalty they had left.
This week marks a disturbing new chapter in the pandemic, with the Trump administration further compromising the transparency of public-health data and ramping up its purge of officials seen as potential leakers. If ever there was ever a moment for congressional Democrats to loudly demand answers, this would be it.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

Last week the Supreme Court dropped a historic ruling on a case determining the reservation status of Eastern Oklahoma—the very case that the Crooked podcast This Land explored last year.
Today, Cherokee journalist and This Land host Rebecca Nagle released a bonus episode breaking down what this Supreme Court decision means, and what’s next. You can listen to season one of This Land on Apple Podcasts or anywhere you listen to podcasts—plus the just-dropped bonus explainer episode—out now

Under The Radar

The Supreme Court just dealt a major setback to restoring the voting rights of people with felony convictions in Florida. The Court’s conservative majority left in place a temporary federal appeals court order staying a lower-court ruling that should have cleared the way for hundreds of thousands of Floridians to vote. As a result, people in the state who have completed felony sentences but still have outstanding court fines or fees remain barred from voting. For those keeping score: The Roberts Five will intervene to block orders that make it easier to vote (see: Wisconsin, etc.) but will not intervene to block orders that make it harder to vote.
There are a few levels of cruelty here. First off, this is an unconstitutional poll tax, plain and simple. Second, Florida frequently has no idea how much these voters owe: even when they can afford to pay, it’s often impossible for them to do so. And most insanely, as Justice Sonya Sotomayor noted in her dissent, voters who registered before this ruling was stayed will remain on the rolls, but won’t be notified that they’re once again ineligible, and thus could be prosecuted for trying to vote. The fight isn’t over, but it’s unclear if it will be resolved before November. If you’re in a position to give, you can help with a contribution to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. Also, adopt Florida.

What Else?

Russian hackers have tried to steal coronavirus vaccine information, according to the U.S., U.K., and Canada. The hackers have targeted organizations researching vaccines with spear-phishing and malware. The U.K. has also accused Russia of trying to meddle in its 2019 election by leaking sensitive U.S. trade documents.
Anywho, good thing President Trump ordered U.S. intelligence to share more information with the Kremlin, which Russia has been using to (checks notes) try to assassinate Chechen dissidents in Europe.
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services chief Seema Verma violated federal rules when she steered millions of dollars in contracts to GOP allies, according to the HHS inspector general.
The Justice Department carried out a second federal execution following a late-night, divided Supreme Court ruling. Wesley Purkey was killed by lethal injection in spite of pending litigation about his competency to be executed. Quite a 24 hours for the Roberts Five.
Trump demoted Brad Parscale from his role as campaign manager, replacing him with Bill Stepien. Parscale won’t be going far—he built the campaign’s digital operation, and his private company provides a handy means of funneling money to Eric Trump’s wife and Don Jr.’s girlfriend.
In other corrupt mishandling of campaign funds, the Trump Victory PAC paid about $400,000 to the Trump International Hotel between April and June, and Trump’s for profit businesses have pocketed at least $970,000 in federal funds, and probably much, much more than that.
George Floyd’s family has filed a civil rights lawsuit against Minneapolis and the police officers involved in his death. Newly available police camera footage showed Floyd pleading for his life during his fatal arrest.
More than 80 people were arrested outside the home of Kentucky’s attorney general, where they were demanding justice for the police killing of Breonna Taylor.
Bestselling author Mary Trump said she witnessed “knee-jerk antisemitism, a knee-jerk racism” among her family: “Growing up, it was sort of normal to hear them use the n-word or use antisemitic expressions.”
Just making sure everyone knows about Ziwe Fumudoh?

Be Smarter

The Trump administration may impose a travel ban on members of China’s Communist Party and their families. It’s a little easier said than done: The Chinese Communist Party has 92 million members, and the U.S. has no easy way of identifying them. The draft of the plan would also authorize the government to revoke the visas of CCP members who are already in the country. The ban would be the Trump administration’s most aggressive move against China since Trump initiated the trade war in 2018, and would almost certainly provoke retaliation against Americans looking to visit or stay in China.

Stable coins getting banned - G20 regulation

Before I discuss any further I want you to remind what was discussed in December 2019 where Christine Lagarde touched the subject "stable coins". Take a look at the video Time stamp of the video 57:13
https://youtu.be/ucuSp2QiK_I
Pretty much they don't consider bitcoin as a danger but in fact they consider stable coins as a danger. She mentioned that they gonna get ahead of the curve on the stable coins and then immediately started discussing digital payments in the EU across European Banks and it is becoming a very severe situation with central banks pushing digital fiat. And that tells us that as it is the current situation with negative interest rates, central banks wants us to have an account in the bank so they can charge us negative interest rates, instantly, and force us to go and spend money, pretty much they can control our behavior with a click of a button. So since this press conference there was not that much of a news regarding stable coins but it came that day where they are going to pretty much ban them. They are forcing a new G20 regulation.
Stablecoins continue to grow, we also saw some new stable coins launching in the past year. Different stable coins with different mechanics, some of them are backed by real fiat (dollars) and some of them are just an algorithm that keeps the value of the coin at $1 stable, a real example of this is Dai.
https://cryptobriefing.com/central-banks...ablecoins/ I came across this article this morning. Financial Stability Board that is hosted by the Bank of International Settlements and it is also in high connection to the G20 are basically saying all countries have to ban stable coins because is no way that these stable coins can comply with even portion of the rules that they are imposing.
Quoting "The Financial Stability Board (FSB) outlined ten recommendations to central banks for regulating stablecoins, including outright prohibition." - I think this will be implemented real quick, I would say by the end of 2020 this might happen because it is in direct competition with digital fiat and they are not letting that to play by itself in the "free market".
Quoting "The FSB is an international entity that provides suggestions on the global financial system." - In many cases the regulation is put in place not to protect the consumers that is the biggest lie in all the regulations. They pretty much are saying, regulation is here for you, the consumer, in reality the regulation is there to protect the monopolies because you have to understand when you are a new company you are a new organisation and you becoming big. Question is why do you become big? Well it's simple because you've been working hard because you invest in research and development because you served the marked very well and all this is expensive but it's well worth.
But the thing is when you become big enough when you become global, when you become powerful you have the choice to either continue investing in creating better services, competing on the markets allowing newcomers to compete with you and just being a normal participant in the free market as everyone else OR you have the choice to invest some money in lobbies and try to lobby for a regulation, try to build up the defense around your business model so nobody can compete because nobody has the resources nor the man power nor the knowledge to be the part of your walled garden because you have built up all this regulation and as you see it is very clear that this is whats going on right now. The fact that they are protecting the consumer, this and that, but in reality they are also admitting that this is in direct competition with their own system with their own power. It is very important to note that whenever you hear these regulation you have to understand that they are selling it to you and acting like they are defending you, so you don't revolt about monopolies because it's all about you ...
I even believe in their "meetings" they are discussing a lot how they will keep the "people working paying taxes don't ask any question", "we can do our monopoly defending through regulation because they think we are defending the people and by the way we also gonna do central banking" which is the fact that you get people with high credit scores getting cheap loans getting cheap money and we see this wealth transfer from poor to rich, the Cantillon Effect(google it to understand better what is this). This all is marketed and positioned in media as something good for all of us but in reality it is not. It's all about keeping their monopolies and their system.
Quoting "The recommendations are to be presented before an audience of G20 countries, and reference major stablecoins, including USDT, USDC, TUSD, PAX, and DAI (DEFI). Given the market’s heavy reliance on stablecoin, a ban could mean disaster for Bitcoin and the broader cryptocurrency market." - Let's see what kind of arguments they have, why do they want to ban stable coins and at least regulate them to death. It is not necessarily that they are going to ban but it's that the regulations are impossible so it is a ban pretty much.
Quoting "The FSB’s primary focus is on the potential risks that stable coins could pose to global financial stability" - This bothers me so much, apparently the financial system is so brutal it is so vulnerable that we need to have all these guys protecting it all costs and when you have some stable coin project it needs to be removed because it threatens the stability. It really brings the question how vulnerable is this whole financial system why is it so unstable? Whenever new invention you have, whenever new startup, you always have to ensure that it doesn't threaten the stability ...
They are basically saying that because retail investors are getting in all these stable coins it means if one of these stable coins exit scams or something else happen it means that that particular retail investor that bought a stable coin will feel poor it will feel like they don't have money and they will not spend in the economy so thus the financial sta

Hello,
This is a very important public service announcement concerning our future well being. I found this information very interesting and should be read by everyone. Please take the time to read it over:
We are approaching a future in which they will mandate us to have an RFID microchip implanted in our body. This microchip will contain all our personal information, and we will lose much more of our privacy because of the tracking capabilities.
Did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible? Please read on!
"He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).
Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless money society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise we could still buy or sell without the mark among others if physical money was still currency. This mark could not be spiritual, because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual, it would just say in the forehead.
We can see throughout the history of society how we are being conditioned through the process of convenience. More specifically with how we make payments. We went from physical currency to credit and debit cards containing digital currency, to these cards having a microchip in them, to now being able to place your card near a device that will read its data. As well as self check-out lines in our market places and the cryptocurrency industry making a rapid climb in such form as bitcoin. These are all stepping stones for the powers that run this world to bring about their ultimate goal, that is to place a microchip in each and every one of us.
RFID microchip implant technology is on the rise and will be the future of a one world cashless money society.
Continue reading to see how it perfectly matches up with Biblical prophecy!
From a YouTube video titled, "Warning From Man Who Designed RFID Microchip"
Here are some notes from the video:
"Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle(a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).
Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible(Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.
Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.
Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16–18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.”"
Mr. Sanders asked a doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor replied by saying a terrible sore would appear in that spot. This is what the book of Revelation says: "And the first(Angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image" (Revelation 16:2).
WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE BEAST, THE NUMBER OF ITS NAME? THE MYSTERY OF THE NUMBER 666 REVEALED?
What I first want to mention, before I share my thoughts on the number of the beast, is that God confirms in threes. We can see this throughout scripture: "For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one" (1 John 5:7 NKJV). "and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV). "...Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!" (Revelation 4:8 NKJV). There are many more examples, but I thought I would just share three of them to make the point.
Examining Revelation 13:16-18, the first group of three I would like to point out is that the mark of the beast is described in three separate verses, 16, 17 and 18. The next three I see is in verse 16, "He causes all..." is followed by three contrasting categories of people, "both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave...". Then unto verse 17, it opens with, "and that no one may buy or sell except one who has...", followed by three explanations of what one must have to buy or sell, "...the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name". Then in verse 18, we read "Let him who has understanding calculate...", which is followed by, "the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666". The last three I see is the number 6 being used three times in a row. The reason I'm making this point is because of the number 666, as you will read below.
"17: even that not any could buy or sell, except the one having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of its name" (Literal Greek Translation).
Here we see the mark being identified as having the name of the beast, and that name being identified as being a number. We can know that these attributes being described in verse 17 are all in one thing because the Bible warns of us about receiving the mark, singular. It is clear in verse 17 that we cannot buy or sell without the mark(being previously identified as a microchip), but why cant we buy or sell without the name of the beast, or the number of its name? What does that have to do with us buying or selling if the number of the beast only applies to identifying the Antichrist, as the common thought has been? So we need the number of the beast to buy or sell. What does this mean?
"here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for of human it is, and the number of it 666" (Revelation 13:8 Greek Translation).
"Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for the number of man; and its number is six hundred sixty-six" (Jubilee Bible 2000 translation).
"In this situation wisdom is needed. Let the person who has insight figure out the number of the beast, because it is a human number. The beast's number is 666" (GOD'S WORD translation).
The Greek word "anthrōpos" being used in verse 18 where it says "of human" is the Greek strongs concordance G444. The first two definitions of the word are "a human being, whether male or female", and, "generically, to include all human individuals". Could the number of the beast apply to all mankind? In the Greek, and other translations, you will notice the beast is described as an "it", instead of "him". The reason I'm making this point is because when a translation says "His number is 666", this would imply a singular person, the Antichrist. But by saying "the number of it 666", implies that it is of the beast system as a whole.
Throughout the years there have been people trying to calculate numbers based on titles and names that come up to the number 666 to identify one person. But from verse 18, I do not see where God is telling us to count up to 666, but rather to count the number of the beast. This number is identified as 666. So the verse is telling us to count the number 666.
What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally in threes based off the number. We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start. We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only option is 6+6+6=18. What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18, being the third verse out of three verses that describe the mark of the beast. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3x6=18, or 6+6+6=18.
Another interesting point is the only two other combinations(making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a "+" symbol in between the 6's are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Adding 7+2 and 7+2 equals 18. Add both 72's together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail: "Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads..." (Revelation 14:1).
Now if you add up all three numbers by counting 666 by moving the "+" symbol around, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is interesting about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.
Applying the same format that I used with calculating the number 666, in which I got the numbers 144 and 162, they also bring interesting results bringing us to the number 18:
• 14+4=18*
• 16+2=18*
• 1+4+4=(9), 1+6+2=(9), (9+9)=18*
• 1+44=(45), 1+62=(63), (4+5)=9, (6+3)=9, 9+9=18* | (45+63)=108, 10+8=18*
• 14+4=(18), 1+44=(45), (1+8)=9, (4+5)=9, 9+9=18* | (18+45)=[63] | 16+2=(18), 1+62=(63), (1+8)=9, (6+3)=9, 9+9=18* | (18+63)=[81] | [6+3]=9, [8+1]=9, 9+9=18* | [63+81]=144
• 1+4+4=(9), 14+4=(18), 1+44=(45), (9+18+45)=[72] (any two combinations of (9, 18, 45, and 72 will add to 18) | 1+6+2=(9), 16+2=(18), 1+62=(63), 9+18+63=[90] (any two combinations of (9, 18, 63, and 90 will get you 18*) | [7+2]=9, [9+0]=9, 9+9=18 | [72+90]=162
Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits.
Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Remember that this was the same exact formula to get the number 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the number 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It is perpetual.
With using the same formula of counting by adding the "+" symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?
Another interesting point to note is that if you add up all the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? Could this be a hint that we should add up three sixes instead of perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?
So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license, being identified based on a system of rulership. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters. Could this be the name of the beast, the number of its name? The beast system that is identified by 18 characters? This would fit scripture that speaks of a mark that we must have to buy or sell in our right hand or forehead, and that it also contains the number of the beast, during a future cashless money society.
Revelation 13:11-15 tells us that a false prophet will rise up deceiving many to take the mark of the beast because of the miracles he does before men. At all costs do not take it!
"Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name" (Revelation 14:9-11).
Did you hear about the lady from a major media outlet who reported a major event occurring approximately 20 minutes before it actually happened?
It's time we know the truth.
A reporter from BBC reported the collapse of World Trade Center 7 on September 11th 2001 approximately 20 minutes before it actually fell!
Remember, WTC 7 did not get hit by anything, so there would be no reason to assume it would collapse. But she didn't report on assumption, but that it already did collapse!
What could this mean? The only logical explanation is that the power that orchestrated 9/11 is the same power that controls the major media outlets!
Don't believe me? Watch the broadcast yourself uploaded on YouTube titled: "BBC Reports 911, WTC 7 Collapse BEFORE it Happens"
It gets even worse...
Did you know there is other footage they don't want us to see twice? I'm speaking of footage on the day of September 11th 2001 during the time the planes hit both Trade Towers. Eye witness reports say the following concerning the planes:
• "No, it wasn't a commercial airliner" • "...but it didn't have any markings on it that I saw" • "no emblems, no logos" • "It definitely did not look like a commercial plane" • "I did not see any windows on the sides" • "It was a black plane, it looked like a fighter jet" • "It was black, it looks like a military plane" • "It was a military plane"
This video also shares testimonies from firefighters who share their experience being in the world trade towers as bombs were exploding(to weaken the structure of the buildings to cause the free fall collapse).
As a terrorist, how could you smuggle bombs into the trade towers with all of its security systems which includes bomb sniffing dogs? Also, if terrorists did plant the bombs, then why weren't we told about the bombs?!
You can watch a video of this on YouTube by titled: "9/11 - THE FOOTAGE THEY DIDN'T LET YOU SEE TWICE (9/11 2001 Documentary)"
What about the attack on the Pentagon? Was it really a plane that hit it, or something else, maybe a missle?
Why did the FBI go around and confiscate camera footage from the surrounding buildings not releasing them to the public when they clearly showed us the planes that hit the world trade towers?
Why was the only footage released to the public from one of the most heavily guarded buildings in the world low quality footage showing only five frames at about one frame per second?
The U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld admitted the day before the attack that the Pentagon was missing 2.3 trillion dollars. Could this attack on the Pentagon have anything to do with covering up that information?
So where am I going with all of this? What's the purpose of this major event that occurred on September 11th 2001? Why did we go to war with Afghanistan and Iraq?
David Rockefeller is quoted to be saying:
"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” ― David Rockefeller, Memoirs
Another video to watch is an infamous interview done with movie producer Aaron Russo titled, "Aaron Russo RFID Human Implant Chip"
Aaron Russo produced such movies as Mad as Hell, Trading Places, and America: Freedom to Fascism. He gained the attention of a man named Nick Rockefeller who saw the movie Made as Hell and knew Aaron was running for governor of Nevada. Knowing the impact Aaron was having on society, who being a freedom fighter standing for the constitution of the United States, Nick sought to befriend him to subtly recruit him into his secret society.
Aaron shares what Nick had told him:
"He's the one who told me 11 months before 9/11 ever happened that there was going to be an event. He never told me what the event was going to be...and out of that event we were going to invade Afghanistan to run pipelines from the Caspian Sea. We are going to invade Iraq to take over the oil fields to establish a base in the middle east, and make it all part of the New World Order..."
"I remember he was telling me how he was going to see soldiers looking in caves for people in Afghanistan and Pakistan and all these places. And there was going to be this war on terror, where this is no real enemy, and the whole thing is a giant hoax. But it is a way for the government to take over the American people..."
Aaron asked Nick, "What's the end goal? And he said the end goal is to get everyone chipped to control the whole society. To have the bankers, the elite people controlling the world..."

"EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR..." - JOHN LENNOX
"We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn't prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God."
It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?
Earth resides in the darkest location within our galaxy and our galaxy within the darkest location in our universe making intelligent life possible. This allows us to observe all of the universe, from the cosmic beginning, all the way through. We are able to confirm that the Bible got it right from the start by saying, "In the beginning God created the heaven and earth..." (Genesis 1:1), and says our universe is expanding thousands of years before we discovered these things. In fact, the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all other major "holy" books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them. Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross, a best selling author, has lead many scientists to faith in Jesus showing how the book of nature and the Bible are allies rather than enemies.
1959, in Turkey was found a man-made ship buried and preserved underneath volcanic ash at the elevation of 6,500 feet. The Bible says Noah's Ark rested on the Mountains of Ararat after the flood waters receded. Not only was this ship found on the Mountains of Ararat, it is also the exact same length God told Noah to build the Ark; that is, 515 feet and 7 inches. Ron Wyatt, along with a team of scientists, lead the research of this artifact.
Thousands of archaeological discoveries throughout the years have confirmed the Bible to be true. From major events such as artifacts found across the bottom of the Red Sea confirming the Exodus account, to 98% pure sulfur balls rained down on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, unlike any sulfur found on the earth; to further findings confirming the history of people, places and other events that occurred in the Bible. If the miracles in the Bible seem too farfetched, remember, the greatest miracle has already occured, the creation of the universe. Without God, miracles are absurd, "...but with God all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26).
Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection. He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23).
For God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!
Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God's law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil's image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).
The oldest religion in the world is holiness (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any man made religion, but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is the eternal Spirit of God given to us from above. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life! (John 14:6)

Act 22 new annual compliance raised from $300 to $5000!

This was warned about when they raised the annual compliance fee from $50 to $300 in 2015, but Society leaders, as it now turns out, made a grave mistake in dismissing the concerns from the wiser posters. Objectors at the time correctly pointed out that if the $300 fee wasn't stopped, there would be nothing to stop the Puerto Rican government from ratcheting up the annual compliance fee further in the future. This is an indirect, underhanded, backdoor tax on decree holders that shows the Puerto Rican government cannot be trusted. This implies there are 2380 Act 22 Decree Holders. $11,900,000/$5000=2380.
Just as the Puerto Rico government tried to circumvent getting the required approval for contracts over $10,000,000, with the Covid-19 testing kits, by instead claiming they were "purchase orders" instead of "contracts," Puerto Rico government is now sticking Act 22 Individual Investors with another $5000 tax, by raising the annual compliance "fee" from $300 to $5000, an increase of over 1500%!!! These ever higher ratcheting fees have made these programs only for the "super rich." There is no rational basis for the fee to increase by $4700 in one year.
So now its $5000 to apply for Act 22, $5000 to accept Act 22, then $15,000 more annually from the $10,000 annual charitable donation and $5000 more for annual filing? That's $25,000 total in the first year, and $15,000 or more every year, something that only the "super rich" can afford. I thought The Society was going to use its unified voice to protect Act 22 people, not only represent the "super rich." How are the benefits being preserved, when instead the decree holders that are not "super rich" are being squeezed to death with soaring taxes, hidden as soaring annual compliance filing fees?
What is to stop Puerto Rico politicians from raising the annual compliance filing fee to $50,000? As the fee is not commensurate with the costs to process the annual reports, it shows this is nothing but an underhanded illegal tax, disguised as a fee, mislabeled as a fee. Why should the annual filing compliance fee go up 100x in 5 years? That's egregiously unreasonable. Similar government arrogance is what killed the tax incentive program in the US Virgin Islands.

Lawsuit? Who can create a Puerto Rico charitable foundation with its mission to keep the Puerto Rican government honest? For those who are required to do the $5000+$5000 forced annual donations, a new charitable foundation should be established to promote honest government in Puerto Rico, to accept these donations.

I will be telling all my friends to not move to Puerto Rico because the government can't be trusted to honor the decrees without sneaking in underhanded, indirect taxes, that are mischaracterized as annual filing fees.

First article is somewhat inaccurate/misleading, since it applies to ALL Act 22 decree holders, not just those involved in cryptocurrency. It will harm everyone involved in the program, and deter many others from coming. Only the "super rich" will keep coming to Puerto Rico or stay in Puerto Rico.

New law threatens Puerto Rico’s status as crypto tax haven

Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vazquez has signed a new law into effect that increases the yearly fee associated with tax incentives for crypto entrepreneurs.

By Jaime Chacon3 min read
Apr 21, 2020

Crypto investors and entrepreneurs looking to take advantage of Puerto Rico’s favorable tax incentives will now find it more costly to do so.
Late last week, Governor Wanda Vazquez signed Law 40-2020 into effect, which made a key change to the rules that govern tax incentives for new residents. Previously, investors who moved to the island and applied for these incentives were required to pay a yearly fee of $300 for the privilege. The new law increases that yearly fee to $5,000.
The Puerto Rican government expects to generate $11.9 million in fees with this rate increase in an update to what was formerly known as law 22-2012. The new legislation also provides a tax contribution reduction of 3% for those who earn $100,000 or less.
"The increment in maintenance costs for the decrees raises the bar for those who take part and for potential investors looking to relocate to the island for the tax benefits,” Giovanni Méndez, managing partner at Puerto Rican tax consulting firm Geo Tax, told Decrypt.
“The higher fee assumes that all of the participants are millionaires who hold fortunes with immediate liquidity. Those of us in the community know that this is not the case for a large part of investors and entrepreneurs that have relocated to the island," he said. Indeed, the fees and other requirements apply to anyone who has lived in Puerto Rico for at least six months and applies for tax relief for his or her business.

Building a blockchain island in Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN—Is Puerto Rico any closer to becoming the “crypto haven” that blockchain entrepreneurs and investors once promised? The attendees of Thursday’s fourth-annual CoinAgenda Caribbean conf...
NewsBusinessJaime ChaconMar 3, 2020
According to Geo Tax, the total cost of moving to the island to save on taxes includes a $750 filing fee, $5,000 special fund fee once approved, $10,000 yearly donation (split in two), plus the new $5,000 yearly fee.
"Regarding investors in the cryptocurrency market, the increase in costs affects whether some will remain on the island due to the volatility of the market and changes in value,” said Méndez. “The new Incentives Code brought sections that incorporate benefits to the crypto and blockchain markets which is something positive, but it clearly contrasts with this last legislation,” he said.
It’s these tax incentives that have brought entrepreneurs from across various industries, including cryptocurrency, to the US commonwealth. Co-founder of EOS Alliance Block.one Brock Pierce and gold proponent (and Bitcoin skeptic) Peter Shiff, for example, make Puerto Rico their home for at least half the year.
Just last month, during the CoinAgenda Caribbean conference in San Juan, Pierce reiterated his optimism that Puerto Rico can still become the “blockchain island”—a beacon for the industry—that was once promised.

Business 23 April 2020

Puerto Rico was once seen as a perfect location for digital currency startups. It had considerable tax incentives in place that benefited investors and entrepreneurs, which led to an increase in the development of business solutions in the U.S.-controlled territory. However, either by design or due to economic shortcomings caused by the coronavirus and other disasters, Puerto Rico needs to find new sources of revenue. As a result, a new law has been approved that will change the structure of the digital currency tax incentive programs in place.
Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vazquez approved a new law last week, Law 40-2020, that alters the way tax incentives are provided to new residents. Spanish media outlet El Nuevo Día (The New Day) points out that the previous annual fee of $300 for those who moved to the island and applied for the incentive has been substantially increased. It has now jumped up to $5,000, and is expected to generate an additional $11.9 million for the government. In addition, there is also a new tax contribution reduction equal to 3% for anyone who earns $100,000 or less.
In correspondence with Decrypt, Puerto Rican tax consultant Giovanni Méndez, representing tax consulting firm Geo Tax, says, “The increment in maintenance costs for the decrees raises the bar for those who take part and for potential investors looking to relocate to the island for the tax benefits. The higher fee assumes that all of the participants are millionaires who hold fortunes with immediate liquidity. Those of us in the community know that this is not the case for a large part of investors and entrepreneurs that have relocated to the island.”
Now, for anyone wishing to move to the island, the upfront expenses are much higher, somewhat negating the existing tax incentives. There is a $750 filing fee, a $5,000 “special fund fee” if the filing application is approved, a $10,000 obligatory annual contribution (with the possibility of having the fee made in two payments) and the new $5,000 fee.
The structure will be detrimental to entities in the blockchain and digital currency spaces, and Méndez adds, “Regarding investors in the cryptocurrency market, the increase in costs affects whether some will remain on the island due to the volatility of the market and changes in value. The new Incentives Code brought sections that incorporate benefits to the crypto and blockchain markets which is something positive, but it clearly contrasts with this last legislation.”
The changes could force many who have decided to call the territory home to pack up and look for better, cheaper alternatives. Puerto Rico has been slammed by a number of major storms in recent years that have almost decimated its infrastructure, and the U.S. has been indifferent in providing a considerable amount of relief. The weakened foundation and the new fees might be enough to thwart Puerto Rico’s plans of being a major digital currency hub.

Where can I post this to get the discussion about it that I’m aiming for? I’ve already been permanently banned from threads and this is only my 5th post ever. I just want thoughtful discussion on important topics.

Save yourself some time and don’t read this. You’ll never get it, unless you do. In which case I hope you enjoy and think about what I’ve said. You may not agree with it all but you can’t deny it all either. The problem is that I’m right. So am I saying I think the vast majority of the world is wrong and I am right? Yes. It’s not easy to be right when most everyone else is wrong. You’re constantly misunderstood or dismissed. No I haven’t lost it. I’m totally sane. Maybe the most sane I’ve ever been. That probably sounds crazy and maybe it is but if this is crazy I don’t ever want to be sane again.
It’s all of it. It’s not just black or white it’s gray. It’s a mix of the major competing ideas and a cherry picking of the best of those ideas. It’s the new ideas that keep up with our time. There-in lies the solution to our problems. Compromise and use the best parts of the major competing ideas not just one or the other. Think about healthcare. We need both a public and private option. We can’t have just one. We need both. A public option for the poor or disenfranchised and a private option for the wealthy and those who can afford to get private insurance. Wet markets and factory farming will be the death of us if we don’t outlaw that shit worldwide as soon as possible. Yes this means less meat in our diets. Look at the data. This is actually good for us. Take climate change. We can’t just stop using fossil fuels tomorrow. We need to phase them out while figuring out how much we can burn without negatively effecting our environment and then allowing the poorest countries to continue using fossil fuels in the interim while they grow their economies to prearranged milestones where they must phase in renewables. Take capitalism. Our society’s trade platform. It must be a mix of capitalism with restraints and restrictions strategically implemented to thwart the worst parts of greed, corruption and pollution. Along with a public option for healthcare and education. It’s socialism and capitalism meshed together. Republican or Democrat? We need a third option. The ruling party. The party that uses the best parts of both ideas and dumps the junk bunk bullshit that drags us down. The tie breaking vote cast in favor of either side, whenever it is they happen to have the better idea. This ruling class is called the Digerati. Not my term. They need to be the deciding voice of reason because they see the world for what it is. They are already silently leading the world. They are the Facebooks the Googles the Microsofts the Ubers the Teslas. I could go on. The Expedias the Amazons, you get the point. They have seen that digital technology trumps old analog technology in almost every industry. They have come in and dominated the old with the new. Taking voting for instance. We need to offer all viable options to increase voter turnout and opportunity. That means in-person, mail-in, Internet, and smartphone via blockchain. Putin will rule us all if we don’t band together against him. Hopefully I’m wrong there and his overreach will be the death of him, but that’s for time to tell. It’s not just religion or atheism and nothing in between. It’s spirituality. No not the traditional Christian soul “spirit” bullshit. Nothing supernatural in the standard sense. It’s the interconnectedness of everything down to a basic atomic level that binds all things. The problem also lies in our broken criminal justice system and the for-profit prisons that lobby to keep it that way. It’s the NRA and the gun lobby stopping us from having common sense gun law and closing the purchase and tracking loopholes. It’s the corrupt gang of thugs called the police who kill innocent people on the regular with seemingly no ramifications. It’s the irrational and crooked stock market putting this false face on the economy but we don’t have any other simple numbers to base the complexity of the economy on so we deal with it. We let these Wall Street crooks live in their ivory towers laughing at us. Selling us bits of 1’s and 0’s in the cloud somewhere that we never actually own. If we did they’d give us all our proportion of the profits equivalent to the shares we own. It happens but rarely. It’s just as bullshit as the concept of paper money backed by the Fed and nothing else. Even gold, what’s that worth anyway? Seems to me something is only worth its weight in what it can do or provide. Gold has its uses and therefore has value but it’s still an inflated illusion. Not that bitcoin isn’t based on a similar illusion but it’s far superior to paper money. More important than just bitcoin is the blockchain technology itself. This is going to change the way we do everything. All the big companies and leaders already know what’s coming. It’s going to change banking, voting, critical infrastructure security, contract law, stock trading, real estate, healthcare, supply chain management, music and entertainment property rights and IP etc etc etc. I could list 40-50 major industries that will be impacted in a huge way by blockchain. All technology is growing faster and faster. Exponentially so. So fast we can’t comprehend it. The growth of AI and the invention of bitcoin are changing the world so fast you can’t even see it. My point is it’s all going to change very fast. This country is not long for this world if we don’t make some massive changes, and I mean quickly. No more assholes like Trump ever can be elected to such high offices. Never let the stupid overtake the enlightened again because of technicalities. All these crooked politicians need to go to jail. For life. To set the example for all time. This bullshit will not be tolerated. The Constitution has failed us. Just look at the dysfunction in the Congress and Senate and now the White House. We’ve had some clowns in office before but nothing this extreme. China is going to overtake the USA in digital and cryptocurrency as they are embracing the technology far more. Bitcoin is coming for your wallets so you better get onboard or get left behind. New digital millionaires and billionaires are being minted daily. The world is becoming increasingly more dangerous every day. The poor and the left-out are growing in numbers and it’s only going to get worse. Those who can see, I mean truly SEE what’s going on, will rule the world. Those who don’t see it will be pushed further and further down out of the middle class and into poverty. This is going to create great disparities of wealth beyond anything the world has seen in quite some time. Think India’s caste system on steroids. So what can we do? We can embrace the future. We get as much bitcoin as we can get our hands on as soon as possible before only the elite have access to one whole bitcoin. Don’t pick up the scraps. Make your own way now. Don’t let the asshats rule the world. The Trumps the Putins the Bolsonaros and the Boris Johnsons of the world can’t be left in power. They are destroying everything we know and love. There are major political changes happening right now that will negatively impact all of our lives. They are the fault of McConnell, Trump, all the judges he’s appointed, and the entire Republican establishment. The Democrats are only marginally better. We need to throw out our failed institutions and start over with lessons learned. We need to actually make a real separation of Church and State. No more muddy water. No more bullshit child rape organizations like the Catholic Church allowed to claim tax free status and then take PPP Loans from our tax dollars. If they are a business that can receive PPP then they can be taxed like one. And why isn’t the Pope in jail. If I was the lead architect for covering up thousands of child rapes you can bet your ass there would be an international warrant for my arrest but instead he’s treated like a top celebrity and revered by some as next to “God”. There is a better way. Now is the time to move forward with plans to right the ship. Arguably there has never been a better more apropos time than now. This pandemic has pushed our country to the brink of failure. We also probably need to think about a backup plan. A plan to create a new country with those who understand what’s really happening. I’m not sure what exactly that looks like. Maybe we secede California or Texas from the union. Maybe we let Bezos buy an African country and pay all of its citizens handsomely to leave. Then from there we start a new world order. Yes, I said new world order. The term we’ve all been taught to fear our whole lives. What does the status quo have to be so scared of that it’s brainwashed us all to be scared at the mention of a new world order. That idea is obviously huge and has its own complications. I’m not talking about microchipping everyone either. I’m talking about real freedom. We’ve given up our liberty in pursuit of safety. We given up honest governance in place of partisan wins. I don’t pretend to know the ultimate answer to all things. Just the formula. There are multiple possibilities. I don’t think there is only one way to skin this cat. We can get to the same outcome via many routes as long as the mission is clear. Do what makes the most logical sense and will actually work verses what is politically expedient. Be the solution.
