The Bitcoin psyop

Daily Pickings posted some background information on the Bitcoin phenomenon recently. James Corbett's latest video explains the wider issues of the blockchain, encryption, permissioned and permissionless, distributed ledgers which are essential to understanding what appear to be contradictory statements from bankers and pundits.

The Bitcoin Psyop
Yes, the blockchain is truly revolutionary. Yes, bitcoin is Tulipmania 2.0. Yes, cryptocurrency is a nail in the coffin of the bankster parasites. Yes, digital currency is a tool of the totalitarian tyrants. No, these statements are not contradictory. But don’t worry if you think they are. You’re just a victim of “The Bitcoin Psyop.”

Encrypted, permissionless, distributed ledgers, built on blockchain technology, have the potential to transform the world by decentralising all those activities currently mediated and authorised by centralised power. When allied to a paradigm shift in human consciousness, these tools can facilitate a world with "no rulers".

Stable, thriving, mutually supportive anarchy is a global possibility. We just need to co-create a shared understanding of where we are and where we could be.

Fakery and inversion

George Orwell's 1984 refers to newspeak in Oceania which followed a set of rules to simplify and obscure meaning; today's language shares some of the characteristics of newspeak but is far more blatant. We live in a world of inversion in which the meaning of words is reversed. For example, in the UK, the ministry of (offensive) war is called the Ministry of Defence, the ministry of injustice is the Ministry of Justice and there are many other examples of inverted meanings. In short, we are lied to constantly but not just in words; news reporting is faked and data manipulated to create opposite meanings.

The man-made global warming hoax was in danger of being exposed after Climategate, a scandal in which the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit committed scientific fraud. However, the establishment closed ranks to protect the guilty and hide the facts, a practice which continues in plain sight because one can't rely on common sense in the climate debate, we need to cite "experts" but climate science is as corrupt as the financial system. Climate scientists have been manipulating temperature data for over two decades but most people don't notice because they just listen to the words and look at the alarmist pictures with vibrant colours to denote catastrophe. "Climate change" isn't just exaggerated; we are bombarded with stories claiming the opposite of reality.

Don't just accept this video at face value; check out the long term temperature record for where you live, wherever you are and see for yourself. There is no global warming but the opposite - it's an inversion. Climate change is a hoax.

It'll make you angry but don't get mad. Get knowledgeable because knowledge is power and once we know the score, we'll know what needs to be done. We need to wake up to the reality of our condition.

If you're Jewish, it's time to awake

The word "Jew" strikes terror into the hearts of the Goyim. Our understanding of Russian, European and Middle Eastern history is so flawed, misdirected and confused that "anti-Semite" is a weapon of great potency. However, fear of speaking out is fading as reality becomes harder to ignore; there is a growing willingness to question Jewish power.

What is long overdue is for Jews to question Jewish power. Jews have been manipulated into the frontline; they are the stormtroopers of the Structural Elite and when the final battle commences, many Jews will be sacrificed because this is not about Jewish supremacy but whatever it takes to achieve the new world order and one world government.

We've been here before. The following article appears to be unavailable at its original location because the "thought police" are the same forces as those corrupting and undermining societal cohesion and morality. Divide and conquer: "By way of deception thou shalt do war" - Mossad

The Sexual Decadence of Weimar Germany by Lasha Darkmoon
“The decay of moral values in all areas of life—the period of deepest German degradation—coincided exactly with the height of Jewish power in Germany.”  — Dr Friederich Karl Wiehe, Germany and the Jewish Question. 

Be not angry at Jews. We have equal cause to be angry with ourselves. We've all been duped, Jews and Goyim alike. We should always ask cui bono? When we join the dots, it becomes clear.

We need to talk to Jews and Jews need to talk to us to co-create a shared understanding of reality. We are all farmed, Jews and Goyim both, but the human cattle are awakening.


Is psychiatry a fraud? There is no doubt that we are increasingly stressed but arguably this is primarily induced by the abusive, corrosive and destructive political economy. Think of the distress of factory farmed animals and we begin to appreciate our own condition as domesticated cattle.

Rather than addressing the causes of our mental discomfort, much of psychiatry involves arbitrary categorisation and prescription of highly toxic drugs, particularly for children.

Exposing psychiatry as a fraud from top to bottom by Jon Rappoport
“Promoting diabolically false science, psychiatry creates a gateway for defining many separate states of consciousness that don’t exist at all. They’re cheap myths, fairy tales.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
Note: This is an expanded version of my recent piece about psychiatry. It contains far more evidence that psychiatry is a highly dangerous fraud. 

Most of us are damaged as a result of living in this often hostile, dysfunctional world in which the essential bonds with family and community are severed or distorted by asymmetric power relationships and induced fear. Competition is the underlying premise of the political economy, born of hierarchy and ignorance of what matters in life: learning and human relationships. The more we learn, the less fearful, and consequently, the less stressed we become. To learn is to live and helping others is a source of strength on the road to greater understanding.

Godhead: The Brain's Big Bang by Joe Griffin & Ivan Tyrrell
Godhead is the most important new book on the origin, structure, evolution and destiny of humanity and the universe I've read in years. It highlights the recent research and insights of our greatest scientific minds while shedding new light on the intuitions of the ancient mystic sages who anticipated them. It is a welcome antidote to the insidious and destructive meaninglessness that pervades contemporary culture. "Unless a higher meaning is found beyond the belief that survival and the selfish pursuit of pleasure are life's only aims, the tendency for each generation to leave the world in many respects a worse state than they found it will increase".
