[Article] O V E R D A R K

So I'm looking through my old yearbooks, and I'm realizing that I missed out on a crucial part of my life: during high school, I was supposed to have a punk phase. I can't believe I missed it! It seemed like everyone was rocking their unruly hair, their unkempt clothes, and their general disaffection towards life. Man, Green Day released new records, and there was an unrelenting hatred for all types of authority figures...
Wait, this is just a slab of concrete with newspaper articles from 2020 stapled to it, isn't it.
Regardless, the universe is telling me it's time for me to reclaim my lost childhood experiences; to go back to a better time. Unfortunately, latent legal issues surrounding my controversial "BONG HiTS 4 JESUS" sign prevent me from going within 500 feet of any type of school, so winning the basketball championship and visiting the aquarium are right out. But I can still be the moodiest, edgiest, darkest person on the planet, and now that I've beaten Shadow the Hedgehog all the way through and went to Hot Topic, it's time to build a commander deck that's truly me. Presenting: RAMSES O V E R D A R K!
[[Ramses Overdark]] {2}{U}{U}{B}{B} Legendary Creature — Human Assassin {T}: Destroy target enchanted creature. 4/3 
Ramses is the bad boy your mother would never let take you to IHOP. Not that he'd care; his business is killing, and he's efficient at it too, costing the least out of any commander I've ever written about. You want to sit around and drink tea with your little enchanted princess friends? Ramses Overdark is here to tell you how the real world works. Nothing personnel, kid.

Commander For You

Like a TI-83 Silver Edition, Ramses is a stone-cold calculating problem solver, but he only gets that way with some preparation. See, killing is a business, Ramses' business, and the one thing every business needs is synergy. So call me Nathan Fielder, because I'm going to unveil the plan that will keep this enterprise running smoothly:

Half Up-Front

As a teenager, I procrastinated from my task of being edgy by protesting government-backed financial institutions with the Bitcoin community, and one thing you learn there very quickly is that assassination ain't cheap.
The first and most obvious barrier to breaking 18 U.S. Code § 1117 is his six mana casting cost, and unlike Gabriel, Ramses demands something a little more tangible than a green thumb to appease him. We're going to use the usual fare: rings, trinkets, stones, lockets, relics... archives... spheres? With you as an investor, Ramses' business (which is killing) will make a killing, letting us take full advantage of Revel in Riches as both a ramp tool and backup win condition.
Ramses will also often require additional gas to keep going, whether it be finding a steady stream of enchantments to throw onto enemies, or to finding ways to close out games.

Murder, Inc.

Enchantment payoffs are few and far between in Dimir, so we're keeping this build a bit creature-light; but the ones we take with are absolutely vital for our success. While Ramses is no Cleopatra, he's still managed to form relationships with some important Greek allies:

Poaching Employees

Our deck only runs sixteen creatures, and while being a lone-wolf is edgy, it's not the type of edge I want to be. I feel like I'm a Halloween bobbing apple -- razor edgy; the type of edge that speaks to people, in the very depths of their soul, and causes them to rebel against the man. In the end, I will be so edgy that even those rotten adults will realize I'm right.
Enchant opposing creatures with reanimation-on-death enchantments:
Once opposing creatures are enchanted with one of these Auras, they become juicy targets for Ramses, as killing them will put them into play under your control. Unfortunately, six isn't a critical mass for Ramses; to ensure that Ramses' business isn't killed by a lack of clientele, let's use some recursive enchantments.
Rounding out the auras, we've got a few utility spells we can play for neat effects:
A lot of creatures are going to end up dead, which makes Rise of the Dark Realms a great end-game finisher. But that's boring. Are you ready to learn Ramses' true dark secret? Because here's where I blow your mind.

Drake in the 99 Non-Dragons

Your real win condition is some random uncommon from Urza's Saga.
That makes no sense.
It makes total sense. You start by playing Iridescent Drake, so...
This combo will make you feel like Joker, because your opponents will never see it coming.
You've got some redundancy in the deck in case things don't pan out: use Fallen Ideal as your sacrifice outlet and win condition to swing with an evasive infinity/infinity attacker, or deal damage using Grim Guardian's Constellation trigger. Should Iridescent Drake be interacted with (which is illegal, by the way), use Ill Gotten Gains to get your combo pieces back to hand and recur some protective counterspells.
I'm not a punk, I'm a goddamn dragon genius. Finally, the deck is truly me!

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Ramses Overdark deck for the Commander format is a fun and powerful budget deck for you to try. I hope you enjoyed reading my paper as much as I enjoyed writing-
...Buh?
Oh. I guess I reverted to hastily written high school paper writing. Is that really what I sounded like?
You know, people say you never really realize what you have until it's gone. It's easy to look to memories of better days and feel that melancholy drop in your stomach. It's natural to feel wistful for a time past when rain drips down the window. But the truth is also that you don't really realize what you don't have until you obtain it. Our experiences may be painful now, but that's no reason to give up hope. You can get over darkness. Look forward instead of back, because in that future lies a wiser you.

Can bitcoin help rebuild Venezuela?

Can bitcoin help rebuild Venezuela?
Nowadays, Venezuela is the most striking example of the negative effect of irresponsible political decisions on economy. Back in the 1980s, the country was an oasis of peace and a role model for the region. Its citizens boasted the highest level of earnings on the continent, and high oil prices gave hope for a bright future. Unfortunately, the extreme left came to power soon after. Hugo Chaves put in motion a spiral of social spending, which combined with the decreasing scope of foreign investment and falling oil prices, led to the financial collapse of the country.
The economy has been devastated by raging hyperinflation, estimated to reach the level of millions of percent. Money has completely lost its value – to the point that it is no longer worth to print it. Ad hoc regulations, such as deleting five zeros from banknotes, have failed. The new sovereign bolivar turned out to be as weak as its previous version. Black market traders selling dollars banned under the Maduro regime have been the only ones who benefited from the introduction of the new currency.
Desperate Venezuelans began to look for help for their shrinking savings. They found it in bitcoin – an on-line currency that has proven immune to the dictator's populist declarations. Venezuelans have bought 16 thousand bitcoins in the first quarter of 2019 alone. At the beginning of 2018, the local market leader, i.e. the Finnish trading platform, LocalBitcoins, sold 170 bitcoins a day to customers paying in bolivars. A year later, the number is 10 times higher. Payments in bitcoin began to be accepted by Mercado Libre, a popular on-line auction site, and Traki, a chain of department stores. The number of places accepting payments in cryptocurrencies kept growing every day. This did not escape the regime's attention. Maduro began to monitor digital currency trading and even recommended the creation of a national cryptocurrency. "Petro" was supposed to be a stable coin, i.e. a currency supported by a raw material. In the case of Venezuela, the raw material in question would be the one which the country has in abundance – crude oil. Each “petro” was supposed to have a value of one barrel of oil, but the plans have never come into fruition. Today, opposition leaders refer to “petro” as a form of “illegal cheating”, and Trump prohibits Americans from trading this cryptocurrency.
Bitcoin invariably remains of interest to Venezuelans, although the anarchy into which their country has plunged is not conducive to the spread of cryptocurrencies. Coinmap – a map showing places that accept bitcoin – indicates that one could pay with bitcoins in just under 200 stores in Caracas. It is not an impressive number for a capital inhabited by 2 million people. However, it can be assumed that many entities prefer to settle in cryptocurrencies without announcing it officially, so as not to attract the attention of public officials. Venezuela is often presented in the media as a patient zero for implementation of bitcoins on a national scale, but this is somewhat exaggerated. The country experiences frequent electricity shortages, so local mines sometimes do not operate for days. Crypto-entrepreneurs are one thing, but ordinary people often cannot afford a smartphone for account servicing, and the network itself can fail even in city centres. Venezuelan Internet is one of the slowest in the world with an average speed of 1.61 megabits per second.
What is more, Venezuelans often lack financial education which could highlight the advantages of cryptocurrencies as compared to easy-to-manipulate fiat currency. This is where such platforms as Darb Finance can find their niche by offering not only the exchange platform and portfolio, but also educational materials and tutorials which would be useful for independent exploration of the ins and outs of cryptocurrencies. The platform itself is so simple and intuitive that even people less familiar with new technologies can get their heads around it. The stock exchange can operate in two modes: simplified, for beginners and advanced, as a full trading application. Because of that, users can start their adventure with bitcoin practically from scratch and systematically deepen their knowledge through experience. It will certainly take a lot less time than waiting for Venezuela to come out of the crisis.

Not your average Q Anon thread: Psy-ops, Zionists, Aliens; a true rabbit hole.

I've long suspected & now conclude that #QAnon is a psy-op. In fact, it is. That's fact. It is obviously a psychological operation. The question is - what motives are behind it? Many think this will save us. I don't. Here's why.
Q claims Saudi Arabia, Rothschild's & Soros = NWO, the 'trifecta' of the pyramid. BULLSHIT. If you've researched the new world ordecabal, you should know that Zionism is central to it. Many researchers have exposed this for years – David Icke, Fritz Springmeier, Henry Makow, to name a few.
Recent JFK leaks prove Zionists were in on the JFK hit (the day America ceased to exist, according to many). Christopher Bollyn 'the man who solved 9/11' proved that Zionists were behind 9/11. JFK: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DUJwaJ6VQAQGaa4.jpg:large Christopher Bollyn – solving 9/11: https://youtu.be/qOq-LbQ4erM
The US has been infiltrated by Zionists/Israel & USED. This is blatantly obvious by Trump's foreign policy decisions re: the middle east. Iran is the last threat to Zionist expansion still standing. War with Iran seems inevitable. Jake Morphonios over at Blackstone Intelligence Network on youtube explains why/how: https://youtu.be/wXwBWJYveV4
Trump even stated that he wanted to be 'the most pro-Israel president'. Why? Israel has repeatedly attacked the United States, covertly. Let us not forget this episode as well: http://www.globalresearch.ca/uss-liberty-attacked-by-israel-47-years-ago-the-u-s-left-soldiers-behind/5386247?print=1
There’s his long-standing ties to ultra-Zionist Sheldon Adelson to consider and then that the Kushner's are also longtime Zionists and even fund illegal settlements & Israeli extremists. So there's really no doubt whatsoever that there's Zionists in the White House. https://geopolitics.co/2017/04/28/trumps-son-in-law-financed-israeli-extremists-and-settlements/
Even leaving aside Israeli atrocities against the people of Palestine, what we are seeing take place blatantly follows the 'Which Path To Persia?' plan. https://www.brookings.edu/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/06_iran_strategy.pdf
This benefits Zionist Isreal. Don't you find it rather odd, therefore, that Q Anon is highlighting ABSOLUTELY NONE of Israel's involvement in terrorism? ISIS are right on the border of Israel & alleged 'Islamic extremists'. Why then do they NEVER attack Israel? THINK
Israel's involved in creation of almost every terror group in the middle east. Israel basically is a terrorist state. This is laid bare in the book 'Israel's Sacred Terrorism', Bollyn's 9/11 research, & comments by many Jews, both high ranking Israeli officials & their relatives, as well as other groups - Moshe & Yael Dayan, Miko Peled, Gush Shalom & others https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DS0EMxfVQAE4MYK.jpg:large
REAL Jews know this & protest against Israeli Zionists, the AshkeNAZI infiltrators of Judaism. 'Behold I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews but are not, but do lie' (Revelations 3:9) https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DS0ERdhVwAA1nu3.jpg:large
Recently there was a changed stance on Syria, which once again seems to support the agenda for Zionist expansion and the creation of ‘Eretz Israel’. https://www.rt.com/usa/416238-syria-tillerson-policy-obama/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome#.WmAartkc4LQ.twitter
I have scoured Q Anon's posts & found NOTHING that addresses PROVEN Zionist terrorism, control & manipulation. The overall Q narrative in fact supports Zionist aims. For this reason, I believe Q Anon phenomenon is in fact a Zionist psychological operation. Israel is only mentioned by Q with regards to Rothschild central banks. Neither Netanyahu nor any prior Israeli leaders are mentioned. Mossad is also omitted, which is suspicious as all hell.
Next I would like to talk about The Protocols of Zion. If you’re one of these people who believe the ‘it’s a forged/plagiarized piece of anti-Semitic propaganda’ claims, I direct you to the thorough debunking of those claims by Henry Makow in his book Illuminati: The Cult That Hijacked The World, which I will include as the first comment to this post.
Consider some of what The Protocols of Zion state, which relates heavily to the corruption purges we are seeing. I'm not saying Pedogate & corruption aren't real. But what if those are the 'presidential stain' the Protocols speak of? Here's a few excerpts that I think really sum things up...
In the near future we shall establish the responsibility of presidents. By that time we shall be in a position to disregard forms in carrying through matters for which our impersonal puppet will be responsible. What do we care of the ranks of those striving for power should be thinned, if there should arise a deadlock from the impossibility of finding presidents, a deadlock which will finally disorganize the country? In order that our scheme may produce this result we shall arrange elections in favour of such presidents as have in their past some dark, undiscovered stain, some "Panama" or other -- then they will be trustworthy agents for the accomplishment of our plans out of fear of revelations and from the natural desire of everyone who has attained power, namely, the retention of the privileges, advantages and honour connected with the office of president. The chamber of deputies will provide cover for, will protect, will elect presidents, but we shall take from it the right to propose new, or make changes in existing laws, for this right will be given by us to the responsible president, a puppet in our hands. Naturally, the authority of the president will then become a target for every possible form of attack, but we shall provide him with a means of self-defense in the right of an appeal to the people, for the decision of the people over the heads of their representatives, that is to say, an appeal to that same blind slave of ours -- the majority of the mob.
What if the reason the elite pedos & corrupt psychos are in fact being thrown to the fire? What if the point was always to expose it? Pedogate has the potential to tear down the global establishments in politics, media and religion.
It is from us that the all-engulfing terror proceeds. We have in our service persons of all opinions, of all doctrines, restorating monarchists, demagogues, socialists, communists, and utopian dreamers of every kind. We have harnessed them all to the task: each one of them on his own account is boring away at the last remnants of authority, is striving to overthrow all established form of order. By these acts all States are in torture; they exhort to tranquility, are ready to sacrifice everything for peace: but we will not give them peace until they openly acknowledge our international Super-Government, and with submissiveness. The people have raised a howl about the necessity of settling the question of Socialism by way of an international agreement. Division into fractional parties has given them into our hands, for, in order to carry on a contested struggle one must have money, and the money is all in our hands.
The money is all in whose hands, and was even in 1903? Rothschild’s. Who controls the press? Rothschild’s. Has done since the mid 19th century (Reuters established mid 1800s). To say nothing of ALL the other Zionist control over the news media.
The words of the liberal, which are in effect the words of our masonic watchword, namely, "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," will, when we come into our kingdom, be changed by us into words no longer of a watchword, but only an expression of idealism, namely, into: "The right of liberty, the duty of equality, the ideal of brotherhood." That is how we shall put it, -- and so we shall catch the bull by the horns. .... De facto we have already wiped out every kind of rule except our own, although de jure there still remain a good many of them. Nowadays, if any States raise a protest against us it is only pro forma at our discretion and by our direction, for their anti-Semitism is indispensable to us for the management of our lesser brethren. I will not enter into further explanations, for this matter has formed the subject of repeated discussions amongst us. For us there are no checks to limit the range of our activity. Our Super-Government subsists in extra legal conditions which are described in the accepted terminology by the energetic and forcible word -- Dictatorship. I am in a position to tell you with a clear conscience that at the proper time we, the lawgivers, shall execute judgement and sentence, we shall slay and we shall spare, we, as head of all our troops, are mounted on the steed of the leader. We rule by force of will, because in our hands are the fragments of a once powerful party, now vanquished by us. And the weapons in our hands are limitless ambitions, burning greediness, merciless vengeance, hatreds and malice.
And one more...
What form of administrative rule can be given to communities in which corruption has penetrated everywhere, communities where riches are attained only by the clever surprise tactics of semi-swindling tricks; where looseness reigns: where morality is maintained by penal measures and harsh laws but not by voluntarily accepted principles: where the feelings toward faith and country are obliterated by cosmopolitan convictions? What form of rule is to be given to these communities if not that despotism which I shall describe to you later? We shall create an intensified centralization of government in order to grip in [our] hands all the forces of the community. We shall regulate mechanically all the actions of the political life of our subjects by new laws. These laws will withdraw one by one all the indulgences and liberties which have been permitted by the goyim, and our kingdom will be distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions as to be at any moment and in every place in a position to wipe out any goyim who oppose us by deed or word.
The Protocols mention control of gold, engineering the French Revolution, and controlling all of the money supply. "Give me control of a nation's money supply, and I care not who makes its laws," - Mayer Amschel Rothschild
Bear in mind that the Rothschild's created Israel. So how in the hell do people still believe Q's narrative that the Cabal is being taken down, with so much brazen & blatant support, aid, encouragement coming from the US government to Israel? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kj5eypBex-U
What if the 'mass arrests' of elite pedos & corrupt criminals triggers a world-wide chain reaction of similar purges? What if the world is plunged into war - Iran & North Korea, as Jake Morphonios at Blackstone Intelligence Network outlined, could lead to two theaters of war? WWIII –just as Albert Pike planned it in his ‘Three World Wars’ plan?
Pike of course was a leading Freemason. Freemasonry = Jewry for gentiles.
What if the economy crashes majorly around the same time as all this? The Protocols of Zion basically allow for all of these scenarios - in fact, they're BANKING on them. What if all this corruption & depravity was by-design, to engineer the downfall of national governments allowing for the implementation of a 'new order'? The Rockefeller Reports were discussing a 'new world order' as early as the 1950s. The UN = the 'super-government' the Protocols speak of. https://youtu.be/NHGm49hhOmw
Economic uncertainties ahead in 2018. Could this be the big crash that the Protocols speak of? A crash that tears down currencies across the globe and results in the implementation of a global digital currency? Hmmm... https://www.rt.com/business/415199-bitcoin-housing-deutsche-bank/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome
Frankly, I’ve long felt that crypto-currencies are bad news. Bitcoin was the first big one and really set the ball in motion. Consider that nobody knows who created it. Consider that the NSA designed models for crypto-currency in the 1996: http://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/classes/6.805/articles/money/nsamint/nsamint.htm
Consider that there are even now people coming out of the wood work to say the CIA is behind crypto’s: https://geopolitics.co/2018/01/20/bitcoin-is-us-dollar-2-0-created-by-cia-kaspersky-co-founde
I think crypto-currency was always going to lead to the implementation of a global digital currency.
The Protocols even speak of an engineered global coups d'etat & a massive purge of the secret societies & agentur that helped them achieve their final goal. They state that they will throw all the corrupt tools who helped them take over the world into the fire.
When we at last definitely come into our kingdom by the aid of coups d'etat prepared everywhere for one and the same day, after the worthlessness of all existing forms of government has been definitely acknowledged (and not a little time will pass before that comes about, perhaps even a whole century) we shall make it our task to see that against us such things as plots shall no longer exist. With this purpose we shall slay without mercy all who take arms (in hand) to oppose our coming into our kingdom. Every kind of new institution of anything like a secret society will also be punished with death; those of them which are now in existence, are known to us, serve us and have served us, we shall disband and send into exile to continents far removed from Europe. In this way we shall proceed with those GOY masons who know too much; such of these as we may for some reason spare will be kept in constant fear of exile. We shall promulgate a law making all former members of secret societies liable to exile from Europe as the centre of our rule. Resolutions of our government will be final, without appeal.
So again. How does the narrative of Q not indicate to you that the end is near? That the 'storm' is the take over? While you're all 'following the white rabbit', they're drawing their plans against us. Q is a Zionist psy-op to keep you gnawing on a bone while 'they' win.
Q has even indicated that upon the mass arrest scenario, martial law would be rolled out. And people who have joined the Q cult train go ‘YAY’? They are witnessing the foundation of excuses being laid for the own rule by martial law, and at what point will that end? Once they have it in place, we are at their mercy.
I think they will use pedogate to justify total, 100%, round the clock tracking and surveillance of EVERYONE. It will be the roll out of the smartgrid, the internet of things. To monitor every move or expenditure you make. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tn4P7IBqoQ
A total control grid... The governments will be destroyed & massive amounts of power consolidated globally. Agenda 21 & 2030. They will crash the economy & bring in a global digital currency, probably the RFID chips as well. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DS0LSbuV4AA-5_r.jpg:large
Meanwhile, as per the 'rod and ring prophecy' the 'star will gorge itself on clay'. Eretz Israel will soon be created as the seat of power, the 'kingdom' the the Protocols speak of. Trump will be hailed as the savior of the Jewish people, fulfiller of biblical prophecy.
He will judge harshly all of the corrupt agents & secret socities & engage in the purge that births the global coups d'etat. Perhaps that's why he was shown on the Judgement card of the Economist 2017 cover? 'The storm' began in 2017... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DS0L8LpVQAAJHIQ.jpg:large
But what if 'the storm' is not what we think it is? What if we are being led stray? By exclusion of many facts, Q Anon has shown himself to be a Zionist. What if the plans laid centuries ago by the 'Elders of Zion' are the real end game of Q's narrative?
"Expand your thinking" says #QAnon - but not in any direction that includes Zionist Israel in the sickness that has engulfed the planet. Yahweh forbids it!!
Consider, too, the degree to which extraterrestrial reality has figured in the Q phenomenon. Then think about what Rabbi Laitman said... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DS0PxcbVwAAYIJ4.jpg:large
i am not an anti-Semite, and I'm NOT about trying to be divisive. It's about truth. Truth is all I've ever cared about. I'm drawing peoples' attention to a myriad of facts that Q excludes from the narrative & by that exclusion diverts truth seekers away from the truth towards a therefore bottomless rabbit hole. I believe we are all one. The Ra Material forms a basis of my philosophical thinking. However in order to arrive at a scenario in which we can come together as one, we must first be free of the Cabal's manipulation. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DS0WibsV4AAl9FM.jpg:large
But in thinking about the extraterrestrial elements that are figuring in all this – some even believe there WAS a missile launch against Hawaii and that it was prevented by extraterrestrials of some description. But consider what the Law of One says about Jesus in this excerpt, and what it suggests about Judaism…
Questioner: When Jesus of Nazareth incarnated was there an attempt by the Orion group to discredit him in some way? Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. Questioner: Can you tell me what the Orion group did in order to try to cause his downfall? Ra: I am Ra. We may describe in general what occurred. The technique was that of building upon other negatively oriented information. This information had been given by the one whom your peoples called “Yahweh.” This information involved many strictures upon behavior and promised power of the third-density, service-to-self nature. These two types of distortions were impressed upon those already oriented to think these thought-forms. This eventually led to many challenges of the entity known as Jesus. It eventually led to one, sound vibration complex “Judas,” as you call this entity, who believed that it was doing the appropriate thing in bringing about or forcing upon the one you call Jesus the necessity for bringing in the third-density planetary power distortion of third-density rule over others. This entity, Judas, felt that, if pushed into a corner, the entity you call Jesus would then be able to see the wisdom of using the power of intelligent infinity in order to rule others. The one you call Judas was mistaken in this estimation of the reaction of the entity, Jesus, whose teach/learning was not oriented towards this distortion. This resulted in the destruction of the bodily complex of the one known as Jesus to you.
The ‘Orion group’ mentioned, by the way, seems most likely to be the Draco reptilians. What has secret space program whistle blower Corey Goode said repeatedly about the Draco? They are in league with the Cabal. David Icke has been making the connection between the elite Cabal and negative reptilian forces for decades now.
Here the Ra material even talks about the ‘Diaspora’.
Questioner: Could you tell me why the Orion group had to leave after, I believe, it figures to be a six-hundred-year period, why they had to vacate? Ra: I am Ra. Although the impression that they had given to those who called them [was] that these entities were an elite group, that which you know as “Diaspora” occurred, causing much dispersion of these peoples so that they became an humbler and more honorable breed, less bellicose and more aware of the loving-kindness of the One Creator. The creation about them tended towards being somewhat bellicose, somewhat oriented towards the enslavement of others, but they themselves, the target of the Orion group by means of their genetic superiority/weakness, became what you may call the underdogs, thereby letting the feelings of gratitude for their neighbors, their family, and their One Creator begin to heal the feelings of elitism which led to the distortions of power over others which had caused their own bellicosity. Questioner: You stated that about 3,000 years ago the Orion group left due to Diaspora. Was the Confederation then able to make any progress after the Orion group left? Ra: I am Ra. For many of your centuries, both the Confederation and the Orion Confederation busied themselves with each other upon planes above your own, shall we say, planes in time/space whereby machinations were conceived and the armor of light girded on. Battles have been and are continuing to be fought upon these levels.
So, it would seem that the Jews, even as far back as the 3000 year old beginnings of humanities enslavement, were in league with the Draco. Don’t know about others, but I tend towards the theory that everything we think of as Gods, Angels, Demons, are simply extraterrestrials and interdimensional entities. Yahweh, the Law of One holds, was a negative entity. Could it possibly have been one of the Archons that the Gnostics were speaking of and that David Icke has thoroughly talked about over the years? He’s even connected Archons to Reptilians?
I worry that where Q's narrative is going will only further entrap us & enslave us to the cabal's world order, that it will lead to further control of us by the Archons. The white rabbit is supposed to free us from the Matrix. I worry that Q's white rabbit is leading us deeper.
In an October 29 post, Q stated:
Do you believe HRC, Soros, Obama etc have more power than Trump? Fantasy. Whoever controls the office of the Presidency controls this great land. https://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/146981635/#147023341
Notice that he doesn’t actually indicate exactly who controls the presidency. The way this is phrased is sneaky. I believe he’s indicating that Trump is controlled and my guess would be that it’s by Zionists.
I suspect that Q is an extension of this, a psy-op to keep people distracted while plans proceed, to direct peoples’ attention to some information and divert them from other information. These directions and diversions are designed steer the collective consciousness to manifesting the desired the take-downs, whilst leaving other players on the chess board intact. I believe what we are witnessing is different Cabal factions fighting it out and in the end I think it will lead to the creation of Greater Israel which, given the extraterrestrial connections that seem to be apparent with Jewish Zionists and elites, could be leading us to the Christian ‘second coming’ & the Jewish ‘first’. Eretz Israel encompasses all of the important land from biblical times and the earliest civilizations, when extraterrestrials were active on the planet beginning their genetic programs and manipulations of the human population.
David Icke has talked a lot about the emergence of the post-cataclysm societies and the ‘new psyche’ that emerged – from indo-European and Semitic peoples. I would assert that this ‘new psyche’/reptilian brain scenario is due to the manipulation of our DNA by reptilians. I’d also venture that it’s interesting that they’re now talking about alien viruses killing us all off: https://www.rt.com/news/416548-alien-virus-space-study/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome
This is in line with much of the predictive programming being done in the new X Files seasons, and would be an obvious preparation for, upon the establishment of Eretz Israel – the long held goal of the Zionists – the colonization of the planet by extraterrestrial forces, the ‘Archons’ that David Icke has long said seek to change this planet to suit their own needs.
The existence of ET bases in the middle east is not unusual, of course. Expolitical perspective on the pre-emptive war in Iraq: http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/exopolitica/esp_exopolitics_A_0.htm The entire middle eastern and northern African region seems to have had an extraterrestrial presence throughout earlier civilizations. Think ancient. Sumeria, Babylon, Egypt...
But let’s get back to Q before I wrap this mother up.
The so-called ‘proofs’ of Q can be found on CBTS sub. But frankly, I think quite a few of their ‘proofs’ are tenuous at best. They ‘prove’ very little, actually. If anything, I think they do seem to suggest that Q Anon is a legitimate insider with access to Trump, and high level intel. However that doesn’t prove ANYTHING about intentions.
If what I’m saying is true, all of the ‘proofs’ could be explained as part of the psy-op, couldn’t they?
Consider all this and do some digging to add to it. I'll just leave you all with a couple more points.
On Jan 14 Q Anon made reference to Jeremiah 29:11.
According to the bible I’m holding in my hand that reads:
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end".
What might this be trying to tell us? Sounds good doesn't it? What about the Biblical context? Consider that...
"Jeremiah previously declared the divine prophecy that doomed the Israelites to exile in Babylon for 70 years. The Israelites viewed the prophecy as a hopeless proposition. As a result, they flocked to false prophets, including Hananiah, who prophesied that the exile would end in a shorter period of time. This situation led to Jeremiah's statement at verse 11 of chapter 29. The first part of the verse, "I know the plans I have for you, emphasizes that God had a set idea of what was going to happen to the Israelites in the coming years. Because the plans were set, the Israelites were incorrect to believe that the time of exile would be shortened. However, the second part of the verse, which states that these plans were "for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope," is included to remind the Israelites that the prophecy of exile was not a death sentence. God hoped the Israelites would not lose sight of their pending liberation from Babylon.”
What happened 70 years ago in 1948? - the creation of Israel. Now consider the long history of ethnic cleansing of Palestinians by Israel. Israel, though officially a state since '48, seems to consider itself 'in exile', not having fully 'come into its Kingdom', if you like "the Israelites were incorrect to believe that the time of exile would be shortened", they thought their 'exile' was over upon the declaration of the Israeli state in 1948, but it has taken longer to fully eradicate the Arabs living in the region & reclaim the promised land The chapter that follows Jeremiah 29 is all about God showing Jeremiah the 'return of the Jews' from exile. I believe in a modern context --and given what has been going on in the middle east, the Jerusalem decision aggravating the Arab states... Ultimately providing the justification Israel needs (which is never much, to be fair) to finally defeat much of the middle east nations and create 'Eretz Israel'. The 'return of the Jews' is imminent. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DTilOX5VAAA02Ly.jpg:large
Remember the 'Rod & Ring prophecy' - 'the star will gorge itself on clay'. Star = star of David = Israel. Gorge itself on clay = massive land grab = creation of 'Eretz Israel'.
It will happen when the weather cools. That's when they'll make their move. The plans laid long ago, before the founding of America, and older still, will come to fruition. They're trying to force God's hand. Watch for these signs: Three branches will become one. An island will drift away. A killing bolt will shine in the night but will not kill. The star will gorge itself on clay. Idols will speak and move about. The black flag will fly above the dome. The belly of the dragon will drip water. Two voices will call out in a silence that all will hear. A rock will stand on seven hills. The ravens will starve. The bear will leave its cave forever. The rod and the ring will strike.
(As a slight aside: what's everyone's thoughts on the 'rod and ring' itself. I heard many people theorize that it is a reference to components of nuclear arms technologies. I don't believe that. I think it's a reference to genetics, DNA. I just can't work out HOW or WHAT it's going to mean lol. Of Rings and Rods: Regulating Cohesin Entrapment of DNA to Generate Intra- and Intermolecular Tethers - http://journals.plos.org/plosgenetics/article?id=10.1371%2Fjournal.pgen.1006337 Organization and ordered expression of Caulobacter genes encoding flagellar basal body rod and ring proteins - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1474584 Some kind of change to our DNA perhaps? Corey Goode has made numerous claims about future activity from the sun and its effect on DNA. But it could even be something to do with the 'take down' of humanity using ET bio-warfare of some kind?)
The very obvious build up to US/Israel/Saudi war against Iran = taking out the last threat to Israeli expansion extant in the middle east. Consider that Israel = a creation of the House of Rothschild = new world order agenda. "...thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." = Ordo ab Chao = Order out of Chaos. Rothschild's = Satanists, yes? Who else = Satanists?
See this thread from VictoryoftheLight on Twitter which outlines how the 'Lord God' of Moses in the Old Testament is in fact Satan. https://twitter.com/KibBitzLaw/status/880816932886372352
There's also the documentary Marching to Zion, which studies the biblical texts & makes the case Judaism's 'God' is really Satan/Lucifer https://youtu.be/styLx-iWwC8
There is a common futurist interpretation that the 'mark of the beast' & 666 in the Book of Revelations is a reference to the RFID chips that may be integral to the new world order control system. Then consider this https://www.yahoo.com/news/jared-kushner-apos-company-under-155951278.html https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2017-03-29/senators-please-ask-jared-kushner-about-666-fifth-avenue http://cosmicconvergence.org/?p=19035
Considering all of the blatant connections to Israeli Zionists surrounding the Trump admin, as well as the middle east foreign policy that is unfolding day by day, the reference to Jeremiah 29:11, in its biblical context, provides little comfort. In fact, I find it startlingly confirms that the Q Anon narrative & its destination, as far as the Trump admin goes, shows massive favoritism to the Israeli Zionist agenda. I now wonder when Q speaks of 'patriots', whether that means patriots to US or patriots to Israel.
Again, as Q said, ‘whoever controls the office of the presidency controls this great land’.
Also, please consider the consistent use of Alice In Wonderland imagery by Q Anon. Alice in Wonderland is a documented component of MK Ultra mind control. Couple that with the many repeated statements Q makes. Things like the consistent recurrence of ‘future proves past’ – which I think could basically be code for ‘we’re re-writing history, folks’.
Consider what happens when Alice 'follows the white rabbit' down the rabbit hole. She falls for some time, passing shelves & cupboards with things on them (Q's 'breadcrumbs'), but what happens at the bottom? Alice must shrink herself in order to fit through the door. Could that 'shrinking' be a metaphor for giving up huge amounts of civil liberties & freedoms? The Zionist new world order will require you a diminishing of human freedom & spirit in order to 'fit through the door'. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DTiuHF7U0AAm-3P.jpg:large
I know I'm being paranoid & making a lot out of a little, believe me. But I've studied the Cabal for a few years now. Despite all the hopes of the Q Anon cult, I'm seeing a lot of dismal warning signs, even from Q. We need to question what isn't in the crumbs, not just what is.
EDIT: Also, consider that Q has shared proven false information: https://qcodefag.github.io/data/images/12be822f398904a6981d207b31854dbde63481d35a84703030debfbdb2ed3ca8.jpg There's a thread over on CBTS that addresses this.
“The WHOIS information for macklerr.com shows that it was first registered on Oct. 31, 2016 - the same day that the purported email from [email protected] appeared on the Web: http://whois.domaintools.com/macklerr.com In other words, there's no way an email could have been sent from macklerr.com more than 7 months before that (Mar. 19, 2016). This is a strong indication that the email is fake. Doesn't mean Q is fake.”
If we are to believe any of what Q has claimed, we'd surely have to believe their capability is above sharing false information.

My visits to the darkest sites on the deep web.

Most of my research will now be posted on /rStranded
*****PART 2 IS OUT https://www.reddit.com/rStranded/comments/3dwdj2/the_deeb_webs_darkest_sites_part_2_furthe *****
This is originally a post I made on /nosleep. Due to demand and the fact it got removed for not being for the type of subreddit /nosleep is, I will be posting it here.
I've always had a really sparked interest in what is commonly known as the Deep Web. For an explanation on the Deep Web that I have found to be helpful, feel free to go here. The point of this post is not, though, to act as a guide to the deep web, or to provide an explanation of what it is. NoSleep is not /deepweb or /advice, but a place to share horror stories. And though the deep web has some good uses, it also has an incredibly dark side too it. The dark web is a small corner of the deep web, containing the stereotypical content (bulk drugs, CP, etc.) that the deep web is notorious for. I took my first steps into this little excavation of mine into the darkest parts of anonymous sites under the surface of web browsing in an attempt to undermine the stereotype that the deep web is more a home to dark, illegal websites then anything good. Well, I came out of this with more then I could have ever expected, and now my view on humanity in general has forever been changed. The start of the... "trip"? It took me quite a while (3-4 weeks) to get enough information to start really delving deep into what I will now refer to as the dark web, the small corner of the deep web that is basically the 'house of horrors'. Lots of talking around, honing information from chatrooms, and taking lots of notes. Even had to make a couple of phone calls to some more then shady individuals, not a comfortable experience. By the end of my trek of gathering as much information possible at the time and getting a good contact list, I took my first steps into the, 'outer layer' of the dark web, so to speak. The hard part is that once you get deeper, a lot of sites have ever changed URL's, extensive invitation queue's, and at times, pricey entrance costs that may or may not end up as cash spent on a phony operation. A lot of it is luck, meeting people at the right time and place, and taking good notes. I had a good streak of luck and took good notes, enough to get me to the places I entered. But what I did notice is that once I got into the first site that I will next talk about, it became much easier to get into other sites, as it was much more freely talked about and information was passed around much more. Chatrooms in the dark web = information honey hole. 1st Site: centrix{} I knew I had broken the barrier when I got into centrix{}. I'm just going to call it centrix and leave out those annoying little brackets that are annoying to type. Back on track, centrix was one of the more well-known, 'general markets', so to speak. A good example to compare it too would be Agoratha or Silk Road. Now, centrix, from what I hoarded via lots of questions on the chat room over the course of a couple days, has been around for about 11 months and has been untouched by any means of being shut down. Which surprises me, because it has everything from Agoratha or Silk Road, but to a much greater extent and a lot more variety. What some sites dedicate their whole selling product to be, centrix had sub-categories for. Just a brief few examples: -Snuff films -Bulk drugs, all varieties -Fake everything, ID's/licenses/you name it -A very censored section of CP -Various illegally obtained memberships (Netflix, porn, etc.) The list goes on. Another thing that is a bit chilling is the fact that they took a great effort to crack down on scams. The big deal on sites like Agoratha or Silk Road, they have a lot of scam vendors. This site didn't, and they had a lot of proof to back it up that I will not go into detail on. (samples, intros, etc.) I also met a guy in a chatroom that was nice, as far as that goes for an active dark web user like himself, who verified/hashed some of the links I had collected and vaguely sent me in the direction of other sites for my personal use. This was a great help, and led me to my next site, which from the illegality and general morale of the site, is what I consider the next layer or gate into the dark web. 2nd Site: BrinkWarehouse.otc Yay, a site with a normal-ish name. BrinkWarehouse was actually quite fascinating, not horrific to an extent, but had a different kind of dark backlash. BrinkWarehouse, a virtual warehouse of textual guides, notes, leaked documents, torrented books (one that was released online a day after it was published, quite a popular author). Now, at a summary this might seem alright, but take into account that the guides included things like "How to make a drone-based homemade explosive" and "How to kidnap adolescence in their sleep". Illegal leaked documents galore, anywhere from U.S. classified cases to foreign affairs. Also included guides on illegally modifying weapons, joining terrorist groups, guides to scripting and nulling bank accounts, so on and so forth. Not a fun site. The next site I headed to is where it starts to get formally creepy, and where I found it necessary to post this on NoSleep. The Site with No Name I got access to this site, which I consider to be the start of the darkest of the dark web of the deep web (phew, that is a mouth full), from francestern344, who was in a chatroom on chit.chat, a very common deep web chatroom site that most of you have probably already stopped in. Well, talk comes to talk, and we end of up the topic of snuff films. How common they are, where they are usually filmed and why, etc. I get his trust, we resume this chat in a private room that he had (0.10 BTC for a private chatroom), and keep in mind that only getting information was my main reason for chatting, I am not 'into' snuff films, though they do fascinate me. We talked for a good 20 minutes before, without me having to even ask, hooked me up with a site. We are just going to use a tidbit of the sites all-# URL to name it, so 5611 it is. Now, this site, 5611, required an invite, extensive registration, questioning, and a 1-on-1 meeting with what I assumed was a site directoadmin. He/she was one harsh motherfucker, and the stern punishments for breaking the sites rules was laid out. The guy who invited me, francestern344, I guess was a long-timer on 5611, who had permission to let me take a tour of the site. Now, I did ask for a formal site name for future reference (aka so I didn't have to name it 5611), and he said that the site had no name, and that it was purely based to display it's content and moderate membership. The title, he said, would only make it easier to identity, which they did not want to happen. 5611 had a small membership that, he said, the runners of the site tried to cater too very fondly, as membership is 1.588 BTC monthly, approx. $355 USD. Upon entering the site, I had to check the "Are you older then 18" box for the 5th time since I started getting signed up. Finally, I was in. The sites design was bland and blocky, with a pure white background and very blocky, close together writing. In the top right corner, there where the options to log out, add funds to my balance, and then a small wallet emoticon that displayed an empty BTC client-side balance. But that was barely on my mind, my mind was on the center of the screen. In a single row down the center of the screen, single frames with captions and a description took up most of the screen. The top one had a still of a table with various blades and blunt weapons laid out, the title "24 yr F, sleeping, sugg. death" with a 2.25 BTC price tag along the side. A timer in green text was counting down. "11:51" "11:50" "11:49". Under the timer, in the same green font, was "78/100". A couple seconds later, the 78 turned into a 79. Realization hit me in the face like a bat. This was a paid snuff site. With a shaky hand, I scrolled down through the seemingly endless snapshots and captions. One caught my eye: "QUICK WATCH. HOMELESS. 0.22 BITCOIN. LARGE VIEW. LOW Q" It was like an attention whoring YouTube title, but it seemed to be working. In the eerie green font, 783/1000 was displayed, a jaw-dropping number in my eyes. I decided this needed to be documented, so I did a quick transaction, put .30 BTC in my site wallet, and clicked on the arrow to enter. It took a minute or two to complete the transaction, and after about a 5 minute buffer, I was in the 'showing'. There was no chatbox, only a slightly lighter border of grey and static. The same green timer was now in the bottom right of the screen. "3" "2" "1". The squared blurred revealing a city street. What seemed to be Arabic writing was on various shop signs and advertisements. Light from a streetpost gave a fuzzy glow to the scene. The cameraman, from the position of the camera, seemed to be leaning against a wall, the shot focused on a dinky red junker on the streets curb. From the side of the cameras view, a gloved finger points towards the entrance of a dark alley, where a man lays on his side, like a breathing pile of rags, obviously homeless and alone. The finger makes a motion towards the car, and three men quietly exit the car and walk along the storefronts towards the sleeping homeless figure. The quality is totally shit, but the scene can still be made out and is enhancing by my horrid imagination about what is to come. About 5 meters from the homeless victim, the lanky group of thugs pull out plain white theatre masks from their jackets, take out various small weapons, and pounce around the corner on to the innocent, unsuspecting victim. The camera picks up the quick shuffling of feet as the camera man runs towards the scene, catching the thugs thrashing and stomping the man from his slumber. "Cut him up." The camera mans thickly accented voice commands the thugs, who begin to slash the victim at a wild speed, like hyenas tearing into caught prey. Blood sprays onto the wall and onto the thugs white masks. It is horrible, my stomach barely holds on. I can't take it. Logging off Tor, I take a few more security measures and shut off my computer, taking some deep breathes and sipping from a Coors light. My last visit on the dark web: CandyPalace I logged on about a week later, and never thought to go back on 5611. I never contacted anyone from my past sites, and I knew in my heart that this would be my last visit to any site on the deep web. I was thoroughly encouraged to not go on, because with 5611, that had really been in my mind that last straw. I had proven to myself that the dark web, even though it has some good parts, is really just a beacon of humanities horrific actions. I had proven to myself that sites like 5611 and the other sites exist. But I just felt the need to cover the last huge part of the dark web that is in my mind the worst of it all. Child pornography. CandyPalace is a huge site, do some digging and get some sources, you will find it. From the videos, I have come to the conclusion that it is all hosted in one location in a foreign country. I always wondered that if there are all these snuff films and child sex slave dungeons that are often spoken about, that there would have to be a suitable amount of missing children cases and unsolved murder cases to go along with them. Some research and asking around concluded that many of the filmed murders and child porn director rings are in fact in foreign countries, where getting away with these kinds of actions is a 'piece of cake' in the words of an aspiring director in a CandyPalace chat room. I will not go into specific detail about any one video on CandyPalace, only will lay out some basic stats and descriptions and let you find the rest if you so please: -The main chatroom had several hundred chatters in total between the various sub-chats. -They actually had a very detailed profile of each child, an example was Tatasa, 9 years old, black hair, and then included a list of, if I remember correctly, 83 videos she starred in and counting. -The children where usually smothered in make-up and, besides for what seemed like a designated 2-3 'stars', not extremely physically hurt via evident beating. -Double penetration, binding, gay, forced 1-1, knife, roleplay, chamber, and dungeon where the top video tags. Each video has 1-2+ tags. If I remember correctly, there where a total of 17 'stars'. Nobody ever brought up anything about if they are kidnapped/imported/imprisoned. All anybody cared about was watching, so getting information on that topic was hard. Most of the scenes are filmed in various sets, such as era-styled dungeons, surgery rooms, etc. No grimy bedrooms or warehouses or basements. Nothing that fits the common stereotype. It was basically PornHub with a pink-white-black color scheme and 6-12 year olds. It is a nightmare. Conclusion I never look at people the same. Throughout taking this research-oriented trip through the dark web, my view on humanity has been changed. Every video I watched in the name of research chinked away at my emotions, often left me crying. Curiosity broke me, and it has been nearly a year since I have full recovered. This is my, I guess case file for my research on this subject. Now before you launch Tor and find these sites, please know. There is nothing enjoyable, entertaining, or at all suitable content on this network. You will be left in tears, you will be scarred, and worst of all... you will never view others again. Please refrain from PM'ing me about this subject unless you have certain details or past experiences you would like to privately share. EDIT Wow, woke up to 34 comments in my inbox! :D Thank you guys for all the feedback, good to know that at least I went through this for something. EDIT This worked out much better than I anticipated. If this is not allowed, let me know, but I have created a strawpoll here, so if you guys really want more stories of different sites on the dark web that I looked through, please let me know. I also have done studying into the dark side of craigslist, etc. EDIT So, you guys voted that you want to see more insights on other dark web sites. I was not intending for this to be a series, but I guess it is turning into one in some sense. I will hopefully compose a second post that mainly consists of sights and their descriptions. Here is a link to, if you want, vote on the types of sites you want me to talk about. I have a set few I will already include, but this is more informative then for my own personal writing experience, so I want you guys to select what you want to know about.

Florida Appeals Court Overturns State v. Espinoza, Bitcoin May Be Money After All

In 2016, a Florida judge dismissed money laundering and illegal money transmission charges against a bitcoin trader, arguing that bitcoin wasn’t covered by state statutes. Today, an appeals court reversed that decision.
From January through February of 2014, Michell Espinoza was unknowingly selling A type of cryptocurrency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank. This term may also be used to reference either the network, protocol, or actual cryptocurrency.

Though one of the undercover detectives with Miami PD had implied that the bitcoin would be used to buy stolen credit card numbers, Espinoza continued with the sales, charging A transaction is a particular action that takes place on the blockchain. In a currency, the dominant transaction type is sending currency units or tokens to someone else; in other systems actions like registering domain names, making and fulfilling trade offers and activating contracts are also valid transaction types.” style=”box-sizing: border-box; text-decoration: none !important; cursor: help; border-bottom: 1px dotted rgb(149, 109, 193); position: relative;”>transaction fees for the privilege. He was subsequently charged with money laundering and illegal money transmission.
But in July 2016, Judge Teresa Mary Pooler of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida dismissed those charges. Espinoza, she indicated in her ruling, couldn’t be punished under existing Florida statutes because bitcoin isn’t legally money:
“Bitcoin may have some attributes in common with what we commonly refer to as money, but differ in many important aspects. While Bitcoin can be exchanged for items of value, they are not a commonly used means of An online marketplace which facilitates the exchange of crypto or fiat currencies based on the market exchange rate. “ style=”box-sizing: border-box; text-decoration: none !important; cursor: auto; border: none !important; position: relative; pointer-events: none !important;”>exchange … Their high A measure of how dynamic price movements are over time, for an asset like Ether or other virtual currency.” style=”box-sizing: border-box; text-decoration: none !important; cursor: help; border-bottom: 1px dotted rgb(149, 109, 193); position: relative;”>volatility is explained by scholars as due to their insufficient liquidity, the uncertainty of future value, and the lack of a stabilization mechanism.

“[I]t is very clear, even to someone with limited knowledge in the area, that Bitcoin has a long way to go before it is the equivalent of money.” Moreover, she put the onus on the legislature to create statues that more specifically address bitcoin and other virtual currencies:
“The Florida Legislature may choose to adopt statutes regulating virtual currency in the future. At this time, however, attempting to fit the sale of bitcoin into a statutory scheme regulating money services businesses is like fitting a square peg in a round hole.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Refers to a summarized snapshot of all balances and data at a particular point in time on the blockchain, normally referring to the condition arrived at by the most recent block.
“ style=”box-sizing: border-box; text-decoration: none !important; cursor: auto; border: none !important; position: relative; pointer-events: none !important;”>state appealed the decision. In an opinion filed today, January 30, Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal reversed Pooler’s ruling on Espinoza’s motion to dismiss, stating:
“The trial court erred in dismission Count 1 [illegal money transmission] because Espinoza acted as both a money transmitter and a payment instrument seller and, as such, was required to register with the State of Florida as a money services business.” Additionally, the appellate court stated that the trial court should not have thrown out two additional accounts related to money laundering because “intent, or lack thereof, is a factual issue that should not have been resolved at the pleading stage.” The state, according to the appellate court, is “only required to provide sufficient facts to demonstrate that a reasonable jury could rule in its favor.”
Regarding the first count, the appellate court took issue with Pooler’s characterization of existing statutes as vague. Pointing to chapter 560 of the Florida Statutes, it explained that the state defines “money transmitter” as “a corporation, limited liability company, limited liability partnership, or foreign entity qualified to do business in this state which receives currency, monetary value, or payment instruments for the purpose of transmitting the same by any means, including transmission by wire, facsimile, electronic transfer, courier, the Internet, or though bill payment services or other businesses that facilitate such transfer within this country, or to or from this country.”
Bitcoin, it finds, is a payment instrument:
“[B]ased on the undisputed facts, Espinoza was acting as a payment instrument seller or engaging in the business of a money transmitter, either of which require registration as a money services business under Florida law. Given the plain language of the Florida statutes governing money service businesses and the nature of Bitcoin and how it functions, Espinoza was acting as both.” Because the charges against Espinoza were dismissed before ever going to trial, the reversal means that the trial court must now hear the case.

Around 4 Days Left to Purchase Equity in Teehe Sports Book & Casino DAO (Extensive FAQ Inside)

There are now around 4 days left to purchase equity in Teehe Sports Book & Casino. Below I've compiled a Q&A list, along with links to even more info. If you'd like to buy Peershares, then check the main website for contact info. Of note is the fact that this project is headed up by the creator of Peerbox, an operating system designed for securely running nodes and minting Peercoins. The creator (Peerchemist) is a well known and reputable figure in the Peercoin community.
Important Links:
How are you dealing with the legal aspects of this?
First and foremost Teehe is not illegal; however precautions have been made with foresight of legislative changes to cryptocurrency, crowdfunding, and online gambling. As much as legal entities are concerned we do not exist. We only exist in form of DAO. Ownership is decentralized and anonymous.
This must be illegal in United States of America.
Contrary to popular belief online gambling is not illegal in the United States, merely the money transmission process to online gambling companies has been outlawed by the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in 2006.
There is no way for government to seize funds or credit card company to block money transfers as we use cryptocurrency. We handle USD without handling Fiat, thanks to NuBits, which is a cryptocurrency that is pegged to the dollar. The Nu Network was created 6 months ago and has maintained their peg to the dollar, at times generating millions of dollars in trading volume and consistently being listed in the top 10 or top 3 on CoinMarketCap.com in terms of volume.
Can’t managers just steal IPO funds and never deliver the product?
IPO funds are kept in multisig wallet among managers and one neutral party, a well known Nu and Peercoin community member who is chosen for good reputation. Even if managers of Teehe want to steal the funds, they can’t. That is the design.
Why is it better to raise money through Peershares than from traditional VCs?
Funding raised through traditional venture capital firms eliminates anonymity. Furthermore, an elimination of anonymity is a point of failure for the organization if legislation were to negatively shift in either the cryptocurrency or gambling industry. In this regard, Teehe management has the foresight to raise funds in an anonymous fashion through Peershares, to prevent third party intervention in the future. Peershares also allows for profit earned to be distributed via dividends among shareholders, plus the ability for shareholders to influence Teehe through decentralized motion voting.
Teehe is structured to be resilient to attacks from legal entities by its ownership structure in the form of a Peershares DAO, which allows it to circumvent high taxes, regulatory costs and forms of censorship. There is no way for governments to seize funds or credit card companies to block money transfers. There is no way for any government or bank to influence Teehe. That is the design. It is important to say that the only contact point of Teehe with the "real world" is dividends sold for fiat by our shareholders. If shareholders can do this without government interference, then they will remain 100% safe and anonymous.
How will Teehe match upcoming projects that are implementing decentralized gambling on the blockchain?
While these truly decentralized solutions are quite interesting from technical perspective, we consider they lack practicality. They are often over-engineered and lack scalability, stability and security. That is why we have chosen not to pursue this kind of approach and use tested and reliable technologies. This does not mean we will not strive to technically evolve in the future. We think we are in far better position to experiment with new technologies as money making business than startup running on investor’s money.
What value does non-volatile betting provide the customer?
Bitcoin has continued to grow in the consciousness of its users. However, people still predominantly rationalize their monetary portfolios in terms of Fiat. The same applies to gambling, bettors wish to wager approximately $100 on a match, and not 0.34798 Bitcoin. We spare our customers of this mental conversion and allow them to bet in terms of their preferred Fiat currency.
Volatility is a risk premium, meaning an investor requires a higher return on an investment due to volatility. The volatility swings with Bitcoin are not small either, especially over a long term perspective, so Bitcoin gamblers are taking large risks without being compensated. Teehe eliminates this risk premium, it is logical to conclude the market will come to favour such a solution.
The biggest value is not even to the current Bitcoin gambling market. Teehe opens up this market to the massive traditional Fiat market. Teehe is a bridge between both of these markets. It captures all the benefits cryptocurrency has over Fiat that saw the rise in Bitcoin gambling, while solving the volatility problem that prevented a larger majority of users entering into Bitcoin gambling.
The gambling industry is one that reacts to change quickly; it was one of the first industries to move operations to the internet, it was one of the first use cases of Bitcoin. The future of the online gambling market lies in non-volatile betting, low transaction fees, and instantaneous deposits/withdraws.
Where did the name Teehe came from?
The ancient Greek goddess Tyche. The personification of chance or luck, the Fortuna of the Romans, a daughter of Zeus the Liberator.
Adapted to English language and modern demographics.
How does Teehe compare with classic online betting sites and casinos?
Teehe solves a lot of problems that customers experience with classic online betting sites that accept Fiat currency. Gamblers are accustomed to gamble with Fiat, whether USD or Euro. We handle USD without handling Fiat, thanks to NuBits. Moreover, Bitcoin takes role of credit card operator with Teehe as it can be used as mean of money transfer from customer to Teehe or vice versa. By not using Fiat currency we solve following problems:
• Money deposit/withdrawal fees
Credit card company will take fee, PayPal/Skrill will take a fee, gambling house will take a fee. Those can reach up to 20 USD on each transfer in any direction. Most of people gamble with less than 50 USD at the time. So they lose up to 50% of their stake just to transfer the money.
• Money transmission delays
It will take up to two days to get your money to gambling house, even more if you need to withdraw.
• Fiat to Fiat conversion fees
Most of gambling houses accept Euro/US Dollar. If customer uses another currency, credit card company or PayPal/Skrill will rob you on conversion rate.
• Easy taxation on behalf of authorities
Authorities ignore small time players. However if you score big win, like 5-10-20k Euro governments will try to tax it. Sometime taking as much as 50%. With Fiat you can not hide this money, with cryptcurrency you can.
• Total loss of privacy
Your bank, credit card company and goverment can track your activity easily.
• Seizure of customers funds by bank or credit card company.
This happens sometimes, you can read about it on gambling/betting forums. For no obvious reasons credit card company or PayPal will just take your funds and keep them for months as you try to get it back hopelessly.
What do we solve? All of the above. We handle USD without handling Fiat, thanks to NuBits. We allow customers to bypass classic financial institutions while retaining their habits.

Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 217 "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatlne]

  • Day 41.2 Russian Group K Container Missile System - Gulftainer Partner - YouTube
    • This is Day 41 this is part two and this is a club K Club K container
    • And it is good for firing missiles
    • These stand up missiles here can just be lifted and hoisted and then fired
    • And this is the company that deals with Gulftainer
    • This is the Russian company a Russian company makes this club K missile system that goes in a normal container, and it is a joint venture
    • I did not realize this until this morning, but Dick Morris had an alert out where he said, "club K was a part of this deal"
    • I said it would be arms in one direction and I said it would be drugs coming in the other
    • Drugs coming in two different ports, the arms are going to be going out other ports
    • I think the arms are actually going to be going out Port Canaveral important Port of Tampa
    • But here is the arms piece of the deal
    • If you're a let's say your Nigerian Minister security of Minister or whatever Defense Minister, you just put these all around your port, and it hidden in plain sight and you're ready to go at any time
    • Civil insurrection or whatever
    • And if you are in power in in a Middle Eastern country where there's a population that may become Restless at any point, Yemen or wherever, this is an easy way if you're a General Grange or someone like that to get arms there for cruise missile capability in containers
    • Hidden within hundreds of other containers and I'll just play the animation here so that you can see the club K system
    • Now Bill Clinton got five million dollars when this Gulftainer deal was done
    • And the Gulf teener deal was negotiated by not only Jack Lew, but also by Rahm Emanuel [Music]
    • {{ war sales commercial }}
    • So all these are sort of Alden things needed for an invasion like a Zero Footprint in Libya or a Timber Sycamore command centers a Timber Sycamore in Syria or Timber Tupelo and Turkey
    • So I think you get the idea that this is if you were organizing an Isis support mechanism for ships, trains, trucks, of course Otaiba owns a trucking line, but let's not forget that--our UAE ambassador
    • This is the kind of animation I want to do for the Awans going into the Rayburn office building
    • So I'm gonna just leave it right there for right
    • Now and then go to some comments speaking of the Awans,
    • And the comment I always like the most challenging comments, because they're the ones that really stimulate critical thinking
    • There's a comment about special toner that I want to get back to
    • But here's a good comment, "George what you're saying is the article they stole a computer system to create an alternate software platform"
    • If you don't remember the articles the New York Times talking about this DHS hack of the inspector-general
    • And it turns out that--the employees are trying to create a new system for the inspector general
    • Wouldn't that be great, if you had all different 30 inspector generals on your system with a Palantir-PROMIS backdoor--wouldn't that be great if that was written by the Awans
    • So again, it just points more to the Awans to me this comment
    • But he's saying, "well--if they just picked up government equipment how can you be so sure like there there was no charges filed? It seems like a slap on the wrist. It doesn't really seem that big of deal. Andre just gave some BlackBerry's over to a government agency. It came out to his rented home a few phone calls. How is that such a big deal?"
    • Well that's not--three different Intelligence agencies came out
    • The NCIS came out to Andre Taggart's home
    • Also the FBI came out multiple times
    • As well as finally was relegated to the Capitol police after an investigation
    • I think you're also going to find that Department of Homeland Security is involved--it just was suppressed
    • We don't know that yet
    • But what we really do need to know is what is the name of the system?
    • What is the name of the system that was hacked?
    • I think it's gonna be the same system that Theresa Grafenstine uses
    • I'm gonna of course ask that interrogatories what is the type of system do you use
    • And I'm gonna also in my DHS lawsuit ask what type of system do you use
    • That's not proprietary information
    • We should know that
    • We should know who contracted was it Brillient that what wrote that system
    • We don't know the case management system that's a real key question
    • So this is the type of thing where you get a challenging question which is great
    • It causes more critical thinking it causes you to dive deeper which I which I love
    • The next one is by the toner--people saying the special toner--what Taggart mentioned a special toner
    • And then Byegone mentions here--here's the policy for toner cartridges with memory chips
    • Now what I had said about the special toner is there is a way with this ultraviolet printing that you can print hidden or--for you for a confidential eyes only type of print on a regular page
    • {{ 911: Bitcoin Paper Wallet --- QR Codes }}
    • So most of the page regular people can see but then there's signatures...the things would normally be redacted that you can you can bring out with with this ultraviolet paper
    • So that's why I said the special toner was used and you saw me produce a package of that ultraviolet from and I'm not sure what that is but by God mentions an interesting thing about the toner cartridges maybe having memory chips, which means that they could be--loading these pages that are being printed and then you could just hack the toner
    • You could just see what people are printing
    • That's just the simplest hack of all time and then just--and then just basically send the printed pages if they were about the one two three agreement
    • For instance usually people print things out before they go to the committee meetings
    • They print it out before the committee meeting they think it's being printed securely but it's being memorized to a printer
    • Now if you were really clever about this, you would delete lunch menus and things like that that we're bringing printed
    • And just store on those printed pages just the one two three type documents
    • Again, if I hadn't seen Raj Fernando on the International Security Advisory Board, if I hadn't seen Rahm Emanuel being involved so closely with the Gulftainer deal and all the UAE deals, and so closely involved in Imran's case
    • ...The memory, the Russian missiles going one way, the Hawala going the other way, it wouldn't be such a concern to me
    • But because you have all those things now this type of thing becomes a very significant a significant risk
    • And Byegone brings up a great point here--that that actually is something I don't know the answer to we need to find out
  • Day 41.3. Did Rep Steve King Say Something in 2007? Three Tresure Troves in Imran’s Backpack - YouTube
    • This is Day 41 part three behind me steve king steve king everybody knows steve king
    • Steve King is the representative in Iowa with Ames, Iowa I think it's Iowa one I want to say Iowa one
    • I believe in 2007 in the Foreign Relations Committee, he said the the Awans are a spy ring that are reading all of our mail
    • I haven't had anybody checked that yet
    • That's gonna be really important because if he's sounding the alarm if he's sounding the alarm in 2007 saying hey these the Awans are reading all of our mail
    • Who knows maybe you knew about the chip and the toner?
    • And they're they're also getting all the people that print stuff to printers Republicans and Democrats right not just what's on the caucus server but what's in the printer toner cartridge memory who knows
    • But if he's saying that 2007 and here we are 10 years later with the same spy ring in Congress--that seems odd
    • It seems like even during this period from February 2nd when the Luke Rosiak's article first broke, you would think he would step up and say, "hey wait a minute I remember these guys--I said something about this ten years ago"
    • I said something--if you see something you say something I said something
    • So I think it's in the Foreign Relations Committee I think it's Steve King I think it's the Awans I think he's saying, "Hey the Awans are looking at our email"
    • I don't think he knew about the printer memory
    • But I'm here today at the Supreme Court yesterday they heard carpenter carpenter versus the United States
    • This is the cell phone case of course they put up a criminal to defend it instead of a journalist who's challenging it
    • But this is one where if we say the cell phones when they started out 20 years ago couldn't do geolocation very well at all
    • They were basically to/from metadata
    • Now they've turned it now you can get into the phone you've got all your apps your people are saying fertility apps and all your goober and your banking and everything they can get everything just by getting in your phone now your phone is your life now
    • So that's what's at stake here digital privacy for the next--maybe 50 years
    • So it's a big case it is--there it is right over the border the Dred Scott border
    • Only this is the Dredd digital frontier it's right there right there
    • We're all Dred Scott now so we got to play this one right
    • So I haven't read the oral arguments yesterday I think the oral arguments get posted a little like a day later after the clerk's mark them up
    • And then the judges they really go into this kind of annotation phase, where they'll just ask a few questions and mainly just gather information gather the arguments, clarify the arguments of the attorneys, but they're not going to issue any opinions on that yet
    • But it should be interesting just to see what the oral arguments where
    • I haven't had time I did 19 videos for something like that yesterday
    • But that's going to be really interesting and the other thing that's going to be very interesting as the DHS hack
    • The DHS hack at I think it's going to be at that hack is that Hawkshead
    • It's the DHS hacks at Hawkshead
    • I think it's a DHS hacks at Hawkshead
    • The Hawkshead home in Lorton Virginia is I think where the raid was was where the DS DHS IG was
    • Why do I say that? There's I believe a friendship between Theresa Grafenstine and the inspector general--a long friendship between the Awans and Theresa Grafenstine
    • So that's obviously she knows what Nancy Pelosi: she appointed her okay
    • So I think there's a relationship there
    • And the fact that another Inspector General one of the DynCorp 30 backbone
    • Remember, Imran is playing video games with the one two three dot--mail.house.gov email with Andre Carson
    • He's playing video games with that person--DHS, okay?
    • So DHS is hacked
    • Who else got raided, who else got raided by DHS and 2 Intelligence agencies in early spring?
    • My initial working theory is Hina all of he pulls her kids out of school and goes to Pakistan in a rush with ten thousand dollars in cash
    • That's because something just happened
    • That's I think maze I want to say May third week of May are March third week of March
    • So I'm gonna say that the raid at the Hawkshead home happened maybe a day or two before that
    • And the reason why Imran comes over here to Imre to the building over here is to erase everything and make a backup so he could take the operation to Pakistan
    • I think the operation stays in Pakistan until July the 27th until he gets back here
    • When he he he's gonna believe and go again, with another set of disk drives and he gets arrested
    • We still don't know what was in his backpack at the airport--we don't know the contents of the backpack at the airport
    • We know the contents of the backpack on the April raid
    • I believe it one I found was the March raid the March DHS raid
    • We don't know the contents of the April raid
    • And we don't know the contents of Imran's backpack at the airport
    • Those are going to be key things for discovery as we roll forward
    • The backpack is really a triad
    • There's really three troves I got close to one of them with a witness of one of them
    • But there's going to be two other troves the capital police trove and then also the TSA trove out of the Dulles Airport
  • Day 41.4. Barrasso and Uranium One, Plot Thickens - YouTube
    • Day 41 the Senate is currently debating the tax bill
    • It looks like they're hopeful they may have something to take home for Christmas for their constituents
    • We don't really know the answer to that yet
    • You see a little bit of hedging going on Senator Barrasso from Wyoming was here a minute ago and he was talking about--consideration
    • And whenever I hear that word I think oh this means that they're not gonna they're not gonna vote for probably table it and look at it a little bit longer
    • I don't know if the constituents will be very happy with that given Congress's performance this year
    • It does look like this Uranium One thing is more than just a democratic issue
    • And more than just a Republican issue
    • It really cuts across both the Senate and House both parties
    • So it'll be interesting to see with brass those interests in Uranium One in and Wyoming and some of the other Senators and Congressmen and in with interests and other western states
    • Be interesting to see how this all shakes out
    • So we'll be here for the rest of the day or parts of the day for the Senate update vote
    • We'll also be interviewing other folks along the way on the Uranium One story
  • Day 41.5. Judge Chutkan Hears ACLU vs Mattis Habeas Corpus Case - YouTube
    • Day 41-year judicial report
    • You can see that there's a few press here waiting for potentially Michael Flynn
    • There's rumors swirling that Michael Flynn may show up in court today as well as other people such as maybe Carter Page or other people that were involved in the Mueller investigation
    • I was researching the Larry Clayman case
    • I had heard that he had filed on Mueller--turned out that it was an older case
    • But I saw a couple of cases between Larry Clayman and Judicial Watch one from 2006 one from this year 2017
    • Basically, the claim is still the same: Larry says I started the company from a volunteer office to a 28 million dollar operation in 2008, and Tom Fitton said--he was in the severance agreement--to bring somebody else in, and he still controls Judicial Watch 11 years later--Was interesting some of the stuff you find
    • I did look at all my cases for updates didn't really see any
    • There was an interesting ACLU case which is ACLU versus Mattis, being a secretary defense
    • He currently has a person that's been in held since mid-september in Iraq it was a U.S. combatant, supposedly fighting for Isis in Syria, that was turned over to the Secretary of Defense
    • And he's been held without writ of habeas corpus
    • The ACLU has requested that and they have not received it, which is unusual
    • Two months in that you don't have it right to an attorney right to defend yourself right to representation this is an interesting case because this normally when you hold on to a person this long, they have something, they have something in terms of Intelligence or there's got to be an Intelligence value to why they would be holding somebody over two and a half months without a writ of habeas corpus
    • Of course the last person that I remember being accused of suspending the writ of habeas corpus was Lincoln or ignoring it anyway in Maryland, when he took over the legislature in Maryland
    • But I was informed by the attorney that no it happened in World War two, during the out right after Pearl Harbor and it happened in right around the time after the Civil War briefly very briefly after the Civil War during occupation
    • {{ 911: not to make you wrong, George, but George W Bush did it also, couple of years after 9/11, so he could torture some folks }}
  • Day 41.6 Motion To Compel The Production of Public Documents. - YouTube
    • It's day 41 this is part six and sent it still talking away and Barrasso says they're gonna pass it by tonight
    • So we'll see
    • Motion to compel motion to compel motion to compel
    • Judicial economy
    • What I would love is just on this one comments about motion to compel just copy and paste all the motions to compel for the production of public documents
    • If I'm going to go ahead and give three weeks for all the respondents to respond again, after they've had kind of a year and a half plus they've also had a chance for a month and a half with their or two months and a half with their criminal case, I would like to just in the interest of judicial economy, get as much of the public documents as possible
    • So I want to file a motion to compel for public documents
    • Especially Fairfax County
    • Get all the unlawful unlawful imprisonment the full report
    • Get all the the beatings with no reductions on the street numbers...
    • Get all the police reports get the capital police reports for the night of the backpack incidents
    • So I've got a good I gotta use my prop the backpack
    • The backpack is April 6 the Capitol Police say they find it in April 6
    • Now Zero Hedge says, "well it was lost actually in late March or sometime in the spring and then the Capitol Police finally found at April 6"
    • No no no that's not how the Capitol Police work there they sweep every night they would find it I've been to the phone booth they would find it
    • So I think what happened is if he know I'll be left on March 6th and pulled her kids out, it's much more likely that that's the night the bag was intercepted
    • She grabbed her kids she went to the airport
    • Imran went to the Navy Yard to wait it out to see if he's going to get arrested or not
    • That would dive more with Andre Taggart's story of about a month before, and then moving out
    • I'm much more inclined now to think March 6 was the real date, the night that Hina goes to the airport is the same night they find a bag
    • Who in their right mind, if there's a theft and an Eagle break in to a network of the Congress would hang around?
    • Well I'll just hang around no I don't think so!
    • I think there is no reason to leave the country and pull your kids out of school unless something like that happens
    • So and she leaves--Hina Alvi leaves I believe on March 6th
    • And supposedly the night of the bag incident and on the on Capitol Hill over in Rayburn happens on April 6th
    • I wonder if they didn't just move it a month apart to just shard it and confuse everyone
    • It's much more likely that those two events would would be in sync
    • "Hey they found a bag, which has a hard drive, which has a laptop, which has a notebook incriminating you...let's get out of town": that makes much more sense to me
    • So fill this comments with motions to compel
    • I want to compel, especially those three police reports, the TSA reports at the airport for both when Imran left, and also Hina left as well
    • And then all the imprisonments and all the violent crime if there is any violent crime as well as all the tickets as well
    • I don't think the tickets are redacted
    • So that's not a problem but it's really those three beatings that I'd like to motion to compel with real dates, real police reports
    • It shouldn't be eyedropper through one person Pat Sowers or someone like that an intermediary with the Fairfax County Police police to one reporter which is Luke
    • Over a series of six months
    • These should be public documents available to all reporters and let people build their case from there
  • Day 41.7 Editing Videos 54-66, Taking Out Summaries - YouTube
    • This is Day 41.7 and I've been going through my old videos
    • And this is because we're coming up on day 54 from last year
    • And what I decided to do was start at day 54
    • I deleted 53 because 54 is really a good good one to start on
    • And the if you go through the video it really does a good job of kind of laying the foundation for you to watch the rest of the series
    • And it's got just a lot of these storyboard slides that have a lot of impact
    • And for people who haven't read Clinton Cash
    • Or people who haven't--spent a lot of time doing a lot of research, it kind of gets everybody on the same level
    • So I didn't edit this video
    • What I did was I because back when I did this series originally, and I just give me a couple ideas of some of these more summary slides
    • What I the thing I was so surprised with is how accurate everything is
    • And how relevant everything is till today
    • That's the one surprise
    • I was saying the FBI it was a spy ring way back then
    • And they were sort of funding Fusion GPS...and and at that time I remember how that was just an unheard of accusation
    • And now how with all the Fusion GPS and the FBI funding Fusion GPS and funding Christopher Steel and funding the Russian spies to come in and live in Maryland to do wiretaps and all the support McCabe has given the Awans
    • And that that relationship will continue to develop over time
    • What I didn't know--so that's the thing that I was very pleased with, I guess
    • Not this all the steps one two three four five here in the topple of Libya, Syria, Turkey was well known and well documented
    • This is Clinton cash had done a good job of it
    • What wasn't known at that time was the FBI's involvement
    • And this is a charge I had made from the first day in the series
    • But this the thing that after doing the Benghazi trial
    • And then I'm gonna point over here
    • I didn't realize how involved the FBI was in the planning of that
    • How many agents were actually there how many agents were actually involved in the cover-up of
    • Or I wouldn't say cover-up but just try to make it look like a bunch of cab drivers--all got together one night and did this thing
    • That's not what happened--it was an orchestrated FBI and CIA working together
    • I thought it was mainly CIA because of Petraeus, but what I've learned is in looking at all the people at the trial: they're all FBI people
    • So I think CIA was mostly involved in the planning but the follow up
    • The FBI was definitely there and that's the piece that I that I really didn't have
    • On subsequent videos what I did was since I was summarizing on a daily basis, what I did was kind of chop off the first three minutes or whatever two minutes of the summary
    • So that you could go right to the new thing every day I would add a new new slide about this second slide that was the idea I would do a quick summary and add a second slide
    • So what I did here is just jump to the second slide
    • So I'm taking about three minutes off of those I'll go back
    • Again, and do a flash-forward, but I just want to let everybody know I'll delete a video here and there and then combined in order to make this more of a series that you could just watch from beginning to end
    • And eventually as we keep kind of editing down it'll get more and more condensed into almost one movie at that to see at some point
    • {{ 911bs: KEEP YOUR ORIGINALS ALSO AS MASTER }}
    • That's all for right now and have a good day everyone
  • Day 42 - STX = Sports Transport Logistics? Does Business With Awan Sports in Sialkot? - YouTube
    • It's Day 42 and I have been in the process of going through a year ago videos
    • And I was surprised over and over again, of how early I had said Andrew McCabe was running a spy ring for Hillary Clinton
    • Mainly created out of a set of reprisals against people who voted for Bill Clinton's impeachment
    • But that degree has grown over the last 20 years into a larger and larger group of reprisals
    • Until recently now, we're seeing all these smears coming out against all these different Congressmen and Senators and news news personalities...for asking tough debate questions
    • So again, this is what I mean where the baby octopus doesn't get any better
    • The cancer doesn't get any better by waiting another 20 years
    • It just gets worse and what I didn't know at that time was that the Awans were recruited
    • They were brought into the United States through this inter-America program
    • The wink is "enter America"--it was a combined move with the CIA through this presidential decision directive 62, basically bringing in these teams, like you would a high school class, like you were to recruit basketball players or softball players or soccer players or cricket players
    • They're brought in in about 1998
    • Now the reason why I think they're brought in is for this thing called the National Nuclear Security Administration
    • The NNSA is created in 1999 to manage nuclear proliferation
    • It also manages Navy fuel the Navy nuclear propulsion program NNPP
    • Not the PP (peepee dossier), this is the NNPP the Navy nuclear propulsion program
    • Now does that sound familiar? Navy propulsion Navy nuclear movement of nuclear materials
    • And now also there's gonna be this company that transport logistics the company that does that movement of nuclear materials for this one two three agreement is also going to have a sports company
    • Now does STX mean sports transportation logistics sometimes an X is used in the business before a shorthand for logistics
    • So does STX equal sports transportation logistics?
    • Well it turns out that transport logistics does start a sports company, and it's started by this guy called for uh no (FORANO?)
    • Now it turns out STX sports does have a relationship with Awan sports in Pakistan
    • And these kids make soccer balls in Sialkot that northern area that northern drug area of Pakistan
    • So we're gonna look more into that but in order to administrate this one two three agreement the FBI gets involved in this
    • This was normally done wasn't done by a civilian agency before it was done by the CIA
    • So David Petraeus works with Andrew McCab,e and Mueller, Comey, McCabe etc
    • That's why they're at the center of this thing that starts in 1999 which is gonna be Uranium One
    • Now she remember it sailed through Uranium One sailed through in 2010
    • But actually it goes back through the Cepheus CFIUS process but actually goes back all the way to nineteen ninety nine
    • And if the scipiosCFIUS if you remember is uh is kind of intercepting
    • The first thing that this spy group does in 1999 is it starts intercepting the CFIUS investment proposals for people coming in investing in United States
    • And what I am saying is those get those get intercepted and get let out two other groups that will give us bribes and political favors
    • The next step and the two in the process is getting them an EB-5 visa get them into the United States
    • Three is to compromise them with either--give them the nice cars show them the nice girls
    • Jeff will help with that Jeff Epstein will help with that
    • And in the process will film them and low light cameras so that they'll always be compromised
    • So they'll basically become our agents for for the rest of time
    • Now I ask you if if Imran Awan didn't have state sponsorship, how would he be able to get away with twenty burglaries in Congress
    • How would he be able to have a secret server with be able to remove the hard drives...
    • Just doesn't stand a reason that he would be just charged with one originally he was just charged with one $123,000 bank fraud movement
    • Well the reason is we I went to this house and talked to Andre Taggart and found these hard drives
    • And that kicked over another investigation another FBI raid that occurred
    • This house and I believe it's gonna be the DHS OPM raid
    • And these are they're gonna be the hard drives and Blackberries and also government laptops I think it's gonna be four and twenty as I said before I think it's still gonna be four and twenty but whatever it is we're gonna find out
    • Again, if they didn't have spent state censorship how would they get 5100 legal legal logins
    • How did they be able to get away with having government equipment could not might not just be government from the Congress may also be CENTCOM may also be State Department
    • How else would they have the hundreds of suspicious activity reports and transfers
    • How else would they have one hundred and fifty doped iPhones
    • All these things would get you put away in jail for quite a long time if you were just a regular guy
    • As I mentioned hard drives are being made here there's lots of physical evidence I believe the toner is the cover to come in and out of these different government buildings
    • I think it's gonna be thirty different government buildings including the Penn Federal Credit Union maybe Federal Credit Union especially
    • There's gonna be three sets of evidence from backpacks
    • One Inauguration burglaries
    • Two the April sixth burglaries or whatever we get that
    • and then finally when Imran Awan leaves on the 27th
    • I think there's also going to be backpacks with the information
    • So we need all those from TSA from the Capitol Police and the Fairfax County
    • We need to get all those and I would like to probably do a motion to compel for those right now, if somebody has any advice on that
    • Again, we've done a lot of due diligence about what we're looking for, so the discovery is going to be precision
    • Here's Kwasi Mensa for instance
    • We're gonna want to see his personnel records
    • And then there's a lot of cases--we can't seem to find currently right now
    • I don't know how these would get expunged if you didn't have friends in high places
    • This case right here is for unlawful imprisonment
    • How many people--that have gotten away with unlawful imprisonment without any kind of sentence at all?
    • So there's the case number there here's the beating
    • And unlawful imprisonment over at the the Springfield Road drive the 6324 Thomas address
    • Again, you see here that the incident number has been blacked out
    • You'd have to have friends at Fairfax County
    • I'm not saying Freitag low light cameras
    • But you'd have to have somebody that you knew like Freitag
    • The beatings we have the beatings at Lachine the beatings over here at Manitoba
    • I'm not saying that this is the place where the girls are being held against their will
    • And this is the gang clubhouse, but boy it sure looks like it
    • Then of course we have Tagawa out there with the car parts in Eastern Maryland
    • Here is the case number there
    • We need to see these cases to see actually who filed these cases...
    • If they're expunged it shows that you've got friends in high places
    • Again, with a different civil suits
    • There's one two three four civil suits here
    • Again, how do you get away with this?
    • How do these get expunged, if you don't have friends in high places?
    • You'll notice an R&H trucking here like very much like an R&L trucking
    • R&H motorcars a lot of time if you're gonna do any illegal trucking operation, you'll steal the cars, and those become the cars
    • Then when you gradually start making money you buy trucks to get bigger trucks to get rid of the cars
    • So that's kind of a way of bootstrapping yourself in the trucking business
    • And then of course then we'll start with the interrogatories and start asking questions
    • Anthony do you know Imran?
    • Imran do you know Anthony?
    • Huma do you know Imran, etc
    • That's coming
    • And then of course these cases here which are 1 2 3 4 be Abid Awan cases
    • We like to see those against all these banks
    • These are credit and then of course all these hospitals Alexandria Hospital Alexander Hospital interval hospital
    • And then this Dulles Greene case here which is the involves imprisonment
    • Also need to see the credit union report from Kalyn
    • And we need to also see the detail amount of transfers from the suspicious activity reports
    • And again, we need to start looking into this STX and Awan sports and these shipments by Awan sports and soccer balls into the United States
    • And see if STX is picking them up
    • If Mark Lambert of STX sports transport logistics is picking these soccer balls out from Awan sports, I say that there's a connection between Imran Awan and
    • --Again, his dad owns the end controls or did control this contested area up in the Kashmir area and Sialkot was where the rice farm was
    • Remember we have bills of lading of Imran taking basmati rice orders in Baltimore
    • Baltimore is where Johns Hopkins is by the testimony of the Defendents that's where they said he went to school that's where Mark Lambert and that's where the trucking company is near the NSA and Fort Meade
    • So it's everything's kind of a concentration out there
    • The distillery is out there in Frederick Maryland
    • There's lots of stuff going on and trucking going to Bethesda near the Walter Reed Army Navy hospital
    • A lot of stuff's coming from the nuclear facilities and the enrichment uranium facilities from Paducah to Bethesda
    • Is that medical isotopes? We don't know. We just need to look more into this stuff
    • We have kind of a smoking gun
    • But here--it's what I'm talking about--the twenty four thousand boxes
    • Looks an awful lot like a ratline being shut down, and car parts being sent to to another country
    • You can see all these shipments by the Awan brothers here in the last--time while they were waiting to do trial
    • And then the car companies...
    • We have lots of documentary evidence that we need to look into
  • Day 42.2. Mike Flynn - Don’t Sign Pleas Deal - YouTube
    • The Flynn announcement is out
    • I mentioned that yesterday and of course it happened today
    • I didn't expect it this morning though we're heading down to 333 con right now 333 Constitution
    • There's word that he's there already these giving up his phone
    • There may be an agreement talk to Robyn Gritz this morning
    • I've talked to other people that are in communication with him
    • We urge Mike Flynn if he hasn't already agreed to a guilty plea to please consider an innocent plea
    • I even if they threaten your son whatever
    • The circumstances are if this is the McCade behind the curtains meeting if this is the famous McCabe hiding behind the curtains and then doing one of those little hey walk up ambushes
    • Just any well--I heard you had that meeting--with the Russian ambassador how that go?
    • Do not! That is entrapment!
    • Do not sign any agreements we urge you not to do that
    • McCabe we can prove an ulterior motive with Robyn Gritz with other professionals inside the FBI with reprisals
    • Please do not sign a guilty plea
  • Day 42.3. Flynn Takes Plea Deal - YouTube
    • NO Autocaptions
    • Michael Flynn Plead guilty on a 10 page plea agreement
    • Read his rights by Judge Contreras
    • Believe he'll be released at DC Courthouse
    • We believe McCabe threatened his son with Prosecution
    • We'll see if that's true or not. I doubt he'll be able to talk because of rule 37b in the federal procedures but we'll see if he'll answer that question
    • Many people at the last sec have plans of pleading not guilty but in the last moments they are threatened and they break and they sign a plea agreement.
    • That seemed to be the demeanor of Mike Flynn in the courtroom
    • {{ 911: "Lock him up" sign held by deluded alt-leftist in the back. People don't understand this situation, do they? }}
  • Day 42.4. Did McCabe Threaten Your Son? - YouTube

Extensive Teehe FAQ

There are now around 4 days left to purchase equity in Teehe Sports Book & Casino. Below I've compiled a Q&A list, along with links to even more info. If you'd like to buy Peershares, then check the main website for contact info. Of note is the fact that this project is headed up by the creator of Peerbox, an operating system designed for securely running nodes and minting Peercoins. The creator (Peerchemist) is a well known and reputable figure in the Peercoin community.
Important Links:
How are you dealing with the legal aspects of this?
First and foremost Teehe is not illegal; however precautions have been made with foresight of legislative changes to cryptocurrency, crowdfunding, and online gambling. As much as legal entities are concerned we do not exist. We only exist in form of DAO. Ownership is decentralized and anonymous.
This must be illegal in United States of America.
Contrary to popular belief online gambling is not illegal in the United States, merely the money transmission process to online gambling companies has been outlawed by the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in 2006.
There is no way for government to seize funds or credit card company to block money transfers as we use cryptocurrency. We handle USD without handling Fiat, thanks to NuBits, which is a cryptocurrency that is pegged to the dollar. The Nu Network was created 6 months ago and has maintained their peg to the dollar, at times generating millions of dollars in trading volume and consistently being listed in the top 10 or top 3 on CoinMarketCap.com in terms of volume.
Can’t managers just steal IPO funds and never deliver the product?
IPO funds are kept in multisig wallet among managers and one neutral party, a well known Nu and Peercoin community member who is chosen for good reputation. Even if managers of Teehe want to steal the funds, they can’t. That is the design.
Why is it better to raise money through Peershares than from traditional VCs?
Funding raised through traditional venture capital firms eliminates anonymity. Furthermore, an elimination of anonymity is a point of failure for the organization if legislation were to negatively shift in either the cryptocurrency or gambling industry. In this regard, Teehe management has the foresight to raise funds in an anonymous fashion through Peershares, to prevent third party intervention in the future. Peershares also allows for profit earned to be distributed via dividends among shareholders, plus the ability for shareholders to influence Teehe through decentralized motion voting.
Teehe is structured to be resilient to attacks from legal entities by its ownership structure in the form of a Peershares DAO, which allows it to circumvent high taxes, regulatory costs and forms of censorship. There is no way for governments to seize funds or credit card companies to block money transfers. There is no way for any government or bank to influence Teehe. That is the design. It is important to say that the only contact point of Teehe with the "real world" is dividends sold for fiat by our shareholders. If shareholders can do this without government interference, then they will remain 100% safe and anonymous.
How will Teehe match upcoming projects that are implementing decentralized gambling on the blockchain?
While these truly decentralized solutions are quite interesting from technical perspective, we consider they lack practicality. They are often over-engineered and lack scalability, stability and security. That is why we have chosen not to pursue this kind of approach and use tested and reliable technologies. This does not mean we will not strive to technically evolve in the future. We think we are in far better position to experiment with new technologies as money making business than startup running on investor’s money.
What value does non-volatile betting provide the customer?
Bitcoin has continued to grow in the consciousness of its users. However, people still predominantly rationalize their monetary portfolios in terms of Fiat. The same applies to gambling, bettors wish to wager approximately $100 on a match, and not 0.34798 Bitcoin. We spare our customers of this mental conversion and allow them to bet in terms of their preferred Fiat currency.
Volatility is a risk premium, meaning an investor requires a higher return on an investment due to volatility. The volatility swings with Bitcoin are not small either, especially over a long term perspective, so Bitcoin gamblers are taking large risks without being compensated. Teehe eliminates this risk premium, it is logical to conclude the market will come to favour such a solution.
The biggest value is not even to the current Bitcoin gambling market. Teehe opens up this market to the massive traditional Fiat market. Teehe is a bridge between both of these markets. It captures all the benefits cryptocurrency has over Fiat that saw the rise in Bitcoin gambling, while solving the volatility problem that prevented a larger majority of users entering into Bitcoin gambling.
The gambling industry is one that reacts to change quickly; it was one of the first industries to move operations to the internet, it was one of the first use cases of Bitcoin. The future of the online gambling market lies in non-volatile betting, low transaction fees, and instantaneous deposits/withdraws.
Where did the name Teehe came from?
The ancient Greek goddess Tyche. The personification of chance or luck, the Fortuna of the Romans, a daughter of Zeus the Liberator.
Adapted to English language and modern demographics.
How does Teehe compare with classic online betting sites and casinos?
Teehe solves a lot of problems that customers experience with classic online betting sites that accept Fiat currency. Gamblers are accustomed to gamble with Fiat, whether USD or Euro. We handle USD without handling Fiat, thanks to NuBits. Moreover, Bitcoin takes role of credit card operator with Teehe as it can be used as mean of money transfer from customer to Teehe or vice versa. By not using Fiat currency we solve following problems:
• Money deposit/withdrawal fees
Credit card company will take fee, PayPal/Skrill will take a fee, gambling house will take a fee. Those can reach up to 20 USD on each transfer in any direction. Most of people gamble with less than 50 USD at the time. So they lose up to 50% of their stake just to transfer the money.
• Money transmission delays
It will take up to two days to get your money to gambling house, even more if you need to withdraw.
• Fiat to Fiat conversion fees
Most of gambling houses accept Euro/US Dollar. If customer uses another currency, credit card company or PayPal/Skrill will rob you on conversion rate.
• Easy taxation on behalf of authorities
Authorities ignore small time players. However if you score big win, like 5-10-20k Euro governments will try to tax it. Sometime taking as much as 50%. With Fiat you can not hide this money, with cryptcurrency you can.
• Total loss of privacy
Your bank, credit card company and goverment can track your activity easily.
• Seizure of customers funds by bank or credit card company.
This happens sometimes, you can read about it on gambling/betting forums. For no obvious reasons credit card company or PayPal will just take your funds and keep them for months as you try to get it back hopelessly.
What do we solve? All of the above. We handle USD without handling Fiat, thanks to NuBits. We allow customers to bypass classic financial institutions while retaining their habits.

Questions Answers
Why does government keep telling us future bills won't have anything to do with internet freedom, but every single time, they do anyway? Thought after the first few, SOPA & PIPA, they told us it'll never happen again.. I think of this phenomenon as a matter of moneyed interests having a bit more bandwidth and consistency when they are trying to jam something through than we do as a more disperse online community. Groups like the Internet Association are beginning to lobby. But basically: politicians are going to revise goals based on what is politically expedient in the moment. At the beginning it may be expedient to join the tide of anti SOPA-PIPA. Then it becomes financially or politically easier to revise that thinking. We just need to be there at every turn with media, examples, arguments, campaign contributions and a whole lot more in order to support the politicians with strong moral and ethical views (and to turn those politicians who are more 'flexible').
So reddit big-shots; What subreddit do you each like and hate the most? Not a reddit big-shot, but thought I'd chime in. /roomporn is an inspiration (and one of my upcoming projects is to make a /roomporn worthy schoolbus interior). I also find myself in /politics a lot, but sometimes it's a little intense.
Like the rainforest that is quickly disappearing, it seems that internet freedom is also on the verge of collapse and that governments and corporations will fundamentally change how the internet will be used and who the internet will be given access to. The internet is the biggest tool we have to seek relevant information outside the conglomerate of media that is controlled by the few, giving us piecemeal of what seems like propaganda, either corporate, government or special interests. We, as the world's citizens need to defend against these erosion of internet freedom. Like the rainforest, we need to take active and monetary responsibility to save internet freedom from destruction and to prevent other future technology from being resigned to this same faith. What role are you as heads of reddit playing to save internet freedom? I definitely encourage you to download a free copy of the film and check out what Ben Huh of Cheezburger Network has to say - his articulation of the issue lines up with yours. And it's a good way to talk about this behemoth: "conservation". I think the issue is that a lot of the govt. infrastructure is broken: easily influenced, low accountability, zero investigative reporting. That pretty much means it's up to us to be 1) more influential (read: half a dozen people calling congresspeople about key issues every single day could make all the difference) 2) holding congresspeople accountable by quantifying their (negative or positive) impact and releasing these studies, 3) investigate (citizen journalism!)
I think the reddit folks do a great job inspiring people along these lines. but it's really up to us to organize. If I had a list of 6 people willing to help organize part time, I'd put tons of time into thinking through this in greater detail. Can I get a "and my axe" from the congregation?
Myspace. Bro, invest in my company it's the myspace of twitter and it's all about, like, foursquare check-ins for your pinterest. We're going to leverage market inefficiencies with first mover advantage, then ROI you hard until you black out!
So guys...what is making the midwest such a premium place for new tech startups? What are the best cities to work in for tech companies and why? I want Erik to chime in here because he has opinions. I was blown away by Cherokee St. in St. Louis. That experience inspired me to bring more art/tech/culture/community building back to Cambridge which is more of a traditional "tech hub" but in a way lacks some of the fast growth, cultural potential, love-of-city, and community cohesion that I saw on Cherokee St.
Hey there awesome people! From what I know about you guys, you're all "stoked about life." You wake up and go to work energized and excited to do what you're doing. Your enthusiasm for what you do is infectious. Most people just don't have that. So my question is, how did you find your individual passions and what would you suggest for those of us who are still searching? Well! This is like my favorite topic. I actually teach a course about this as faculty at School of the Museum of Fine Arts. I have always been a bit anti-deskjob (possibly to my detriment), so I run around finding fun projects, pouring my all into them, and then desperately trying to break even on life/rent/project costs. It's always worked out well. I was able to start [Danger!Awesome laser cutting and 3d printing](www.dangerawesome.co) this way with no money and is pretty much the system I rely on to extend /explore the idea of "things I love" and to fund those things. Any specific questions about how I fell into this program/approach?
Found my passion, leaving desk job within the month ;) And I have another project I want to start, but I need to find me some programmers for that one... I think I'll be contacting you at Nimblebot shortly. Would love to talk! Often we find ourselves advising new startups so that they can sustainably find the resources they need (affordably and quickly) rather than relying on us. Always happy to talk.
Sure, i have a question for you. perhaps using danger!awesome as an example, can you go into the actual process of how you managed to create things out of nothing? (e.g. how did you get the money to set up shop or obtain the knowledge necessary for operating your business?) Ok! So for danger!awesome, I really really really wanted some lasercutters, but realized that (at the some) they were like $30-50k each. The only way I was going to afford that was by getting someone to sponsor a cool project. I shopped around dozens of cool projects with explanatory 1-sheets and examples of why marketing companies, art patrons, grant organizations and others might want to fund 3 cutters at 100k (or even 1 cutter at 30k). Ultimately the band OK Go! got together with us to brainstorm a music video using our lasercutting concepts and we eventually brought them the stop motion concept "last leaf". They got samsung on board, we got universal laser on board (to drastically reduce prices) and it seems like everyone got what they wanted. It was a lot of work and a lot of patience. Now, kickstarter is a great way to do something like that because it's easier for 100 duck sized horses to believe in your plan than it is for one horse sized duck to give you funding all at once (and faster too!). As for learning the business, I would say I was clueless at the beginning and then slowly learned from hard knocks and better entrepreneurs. The key for me has always been assuming I am wrong about a given confrontation/problem that crops up and then taking in knowledge through that failure. More questions on this?
Thanks for the reply! That story seems kind of surreal to me but I'm sure its just a result of hustling and making stuff happen. That being said, can you elaborate on some more of the insights you've learned after having started so many projects? What advice would you give to the you from years ago when he first started out? Advice to me years ago: -Don't start a project until you have a clear, concise 1-sheet describing the idea with pretty pictures -Use your 1-sheet to respond to people who like your idea and ask for "just a few more details on top of this great kick off call" which inevitably happens -When people don't get your project/funding/whatever going, they don't hate you or your idea, they are just busy. Or maybe moving in another direction and simply can't help you just yet. Find out which it is. If they're busy, bother them politely at regular intervals. If they are moving in another direction find out what nonmonetary help they can give you, if indeed they are excited about doing so. Or find out how you can help them (presumably you are talking to them because you already admire what they do and want to support it).
We have not seen nearly the amount of protest against the latest internet legislation. I presume a large part of this has to do with people either tired of fighting what seems to be an impossible opponent or there just hasn't been the same magnitude of press fighting against it to rile people up. Is this an inevitable issue that will only be more difficult to overcome with time? Why haven't I seen more discussion of trying to organize another internet blackout? Will it lose the same bite if it happens again and again? Will reddit go through another blackout, maybe for longer this time? Is there a serious effort being put into developing a parallel version of the internet that can gain serious monetary backers? Or is this just a sort of pipe dream that can't effectively be accomplished in the near future? (I forget the name of the subreddit that was discussing building something like this). Is regulation at the CISPA of the internet really a bad thing? I know there was a lot of hype about the loss of net neutrality, but would legislation like that really lead down such a slippery slope as it was hyped to be just a year ago, or is that just hype to rile up support (just like the other side riles up fears about piracy)? This is a matter of sustainability. Those fighting to gain control of the internet (or anything) through lobbying and lawmaking are consistent and well-supported. If we want to have the same bite, we need to organize. The Internet Association is doing some of that work. But there also needs to be a "by the people" version. So basically, the internet has just deputized you to start organizing people more often/more effectively. Let us know if you need help.
Reddit gets billions of page-hits per month, which translates to a lot of eye-balls on critical issues, and sometimes a lot of money put toward some really great causes. We've seen Reddit contribute to curing diseases, building schools and fences, planning rallies and meetings, and sending people on all sorts of adventures, etc, etc,. What we have is social media that actually creates social action. That's pretty damn miraculous. *** Any plans to proactively tap into Reddit as a place for social action/entrepreneurship? I don't just mean posts that make things available, I mean really bake functionality into the website that would make it a platform for the kind of beneficent movements we've seen in the past? Overall - nothing needs to change, Reddit is great, but it has the potential to become even greater. Does anyone see any other meaningful things that can be done to evolve the site and keep it meaningful? I'd be interested on Erik's view on this. As for Nimblebot, we are working on a video layer that makes user-action and user-participation a bit easier. So when you're watching a TED video thinking "That's amazing work, I should really get involved in something like that" you can instead click a button that leads you to a) connects you with the practitioner in the video b) connects you to the resources they want you to have to be effective as an activist or c) initiates some kind of voice call/form email/whatever that you need to fill out in order to, for example, email your congressman. The key here is adding this interactivity without bothering the user as they watch video - a constraint that we've created effective UX around. I can't wait to see existing platforms for communication really "turn the corner" to become platforms for action.
When making a team for an entrepreneurial venture, what features would you recommend looking for in members? Edit: What features would you advise avoidance? Do have: -An agreement and personalities that allow partners to describe feelings at any time (even if they are irrational) with the intention of strengthening the partner bond -I've watched a lot of entrepreneurs in the cambridge community who were proponents of "yeah we all have strong personalities and argue til we're blue in the face, but we do it out of love and we just want the product to be successful" fail pretty hard. There's only so much tough love your company can take and often it just manifests as anger, condescension, and greed. So I say go for a full team of meek people who know what the common goal is over those "win at all costs" people any day. Almost everyone at Nimblebot blames themself when something goes wrong and it's wonderful to be able to tease out the actual root cause of an issue without the added stress of "he said she said" or "I know i'm right on this one so can you just sign those tps reports, thaaanks" -balance: everyone needs to be able to "run fast" for the company, juggle multiple job responsibilities, and still (appear) to be a human out in real life. that's not super easy.
Can the Internet be controlled? With the government working on bills to control the Internet, how possible is that financially, physically, and legally? It can definitely be controlled. The question is will companies with influence over the internet comply with court orders (yes - always yes in America, unfortunately). A brief aside: Under the guise of anti-terrorism, big telecom companies complied with government orders to put huge wiretap operations on their own customers, a surprising fact which was leaked by disaffected high-ups at various companies and then eventually admitted by administration officials under bush. Those enormous monitoring operations are still in place. Wiretapping is obviously illegal - so eventually these officials and companies were retroactively pardoned as an act of congress. That's bonkers to me. There's already so much control over communications networks and law-making in that little part of our history. I fully believe that this bodes poorly for control of internet if we're not careful/diligent as users.
Why do you think there should be internet freedom? Why do you believe it is important? While bills like SOPA/PIPA were not perfect, I think that the idea of freedom of information (which is a component of the movement for a free internet) is inherently at odds with a capitalist economic system constrained by the physical scarcity of resources in the real world. A free internet made sense when it was for education and non-profit. Now that it is primarily used for commercial purposes, it needs to be regulated, and the government has the constitutional justification to do so. Furthermore, governments, and laws, inherently restrict freedoms but often do so in a good and productive way. Many laws are bad laws, but most laws are by and large good laws, and keep our society functioning. How do you propose to reconcile these realities? Often I just hear, oh, lawmakers don't understand how the internet, or technology, works. But as a young, technologically savvy, highly educated individual, who absolutely understands how the internet works, I just can't get on board with that. You appear to be advocating a type of internet libertarianism, and frankly, I think a lot of what goes on on the internet and has become status quo, should be or should have been made illegal a long time ago. Do you have any thoughts on this? I hear you and I do have some thoughts, but do you have specific ideas on what should be regulated or made illegal as a starting point for discussion? Thanks for the comment, curious where this goes!
If people take one thing away from your new mini-doc, what would you want it to be? Wow, great question. I would say that it's three mini-ideas blended into the same theme: a) people think you have to be in a startup hub to get your tech company going, but it's clear that's not the case b)entrepreneurship + community building/economic growth go hand in hand which is huge for smaller cities in America c) if it only takes 6-8 entrepreneurs in a given city to start making a vibrant startup "scene" (see Brad Feld's book "Startup Communities") that means that 100 of us could revitalize the entire country if we just stay focused and connected.
Awesome points Nadeem. Specifically regarding point 2, do you think that, reflecting on your experiences, tech entrepreneurship can be lauded as a new feasible model to drive growth not just in small-town America but for rural villages in developing countries or even low-income nations who have traditionally struggled with growth? I think it's plausible. I really think Brad Feld's Startup Communities is a good read here. It might be built on the American Context, but it ports internationally and into rural settings. The key would be the "events that engage the entire entrepreneurial stack" + getting some "feeder organizations" to pipe resources into some of these communities and most importantly having super great "6-12 core leaders who focus on startup community growth for the long term ==> 20-year view"
Questions for the guys who hosted the bus: Have there been any noticeable changes in your community since the Internet Freedom Bus rolled through? Did it prompt anything? Yeah - I am with Jordan. We weren't on a colonial journey, bringing light into the jungle. We were just telling stories and making new connections. If anything, we were learning/researching and they were lecturing/informing. If anything changed, it's that each of these companies have yet another experience/avenue for disseminating their important work.
Proof? (I keed! I keed!) Internet freedom seems to be taking major hits lately. Politicians don't understand it well enough to legislate it, and the big players are throwing back freedom as fast as they can manage. Note that large volumes of this seem inexorably tied to copyright law. How do you think this tide can be turned? This is right on - and I think the others will have more detailed answers (particularly Alexis, Erik, and Holmes). For me, the key is in connecting communities online and offline and then telling digital video stories that can be easily spread. This film is nothing more than us showing up to show people what is already going on. And when we did, everyone from big companies to congresspeople came back to say "oh wow, there's some good nuggets in there" - suddenly it becomes a bit more clear and a bit more real that internet freedom and economic growth are tied together (and that the internet economy can really be a big deal even in states not typically associated with "tech"). So now that we have the reddit community (and so many others) out there as a champions for Open Internet, and tons of other organizations steeped in these stories daily, how do we make the video stories diverse in content and ubiquitous in number. I am quite confident that once we have the storytelling down, the dissemination and lobbying part is actually comparatively easy.
Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck? I don't know why you're getting downvoted, it's a legitimate question. I've put a lot of thought into this one. It's got to be 1 horse-sized duck. I've seen a group of children attacking a tourist in Russia and it's scary as all get out. Basically, tons of small pissed off things will always kill you. Cue any horror movie that has ants consuming flesh, or tons of spiders, or whatever.
I'm going for 1 horse-sized duck and I'm going right for the throat. With my teeth.
Is Congress ever going to stop trying to fuck with the Internet? No. Way. The internet is everywhere and there is a lot of money to be made. When there's money to be made, think tanks and press organizations and lobbyists spin up into action with literally billions of dollars in funding and begin to create legitimate arguments (at various points legislation like CISPA seems attractive, based on "research"). These reports, talking points, and lobbyists are very effective at influencing lawmakers.
The good news is that to counteract this we just need to be organized, informative, and ubiquitous. Bombard these data-hungry representatives and senators from every. possible. angle. Politely (mostly). Heated televised debates and large public protests definitely a good idea.
There are a lot of important "causes" in the world. (Rainforest preservation, feeding the hungry,eyc) I'm obsessed with low-tech/high-impact technologies that can have a big impact on economic growth, education, etc. all over the world. My intiation to this work was through Amy Smith of D-Lab at MIT.
What cause(s) would you fight for if we didn't need to fight for Internet freedom? I'm spending some of my time supporting the social entrepreneurs who help create (and more importantly, make sustainable) worker cooperatives, drip irrigation installation and maintenance, water purification, night-lights (can't eat/can't work/can't read if you can't see!), mobile charging stands, etc.
How do you hope the film will enlighten those who are not tech savvy? More specifically what makes you think you can push start those not in Silicon Valley by means of a movie? Hey great questions! So I think people, even non "tech savvy" people, have a strong feeling that tech happens in the biggest cities. Maybe for some people it's silicon valley. Some people extend that to other coastal cities...But most people don't think of des moines or omaha. And, watching the movie, I don't think you need to be tech-savyy, or even tech-interested, to get excited when you see what ScarlettGarnet or STLStyle or widernet are up to. They are revitilizing their communities, creating brick and mortar shops, and reaching new audiences online - easy.
As for "push starting" those not in silicon valley. I think those not in silicon valley are already push starting themselves and we're just there with a camera. Maybe someone outside of the valley sees this and says "oh yeah that's kind of true - there's entrepreneurs nearby, i need to hook up with that community and get my ideas off the ground". But most likely we're just encouraging people to do the same "connect-make-grow" things they were already up to in these communities. Maybe talking about it more makes it broader, or faster, or both? I think so anyway.
What do you think of the possibilities of ad-hoc mesh networking, rather than depending on large telcos for Internet access? Not an engineer (or not that type of engineer), but I literally dream about this. I actually think that a "own your own data" or "port your own data" social network might have to precede something like that in order to bring "decentralized networks" into the popular consciousness as a useful social tool.
Is there going to be a sequel? Great question! I guess the answer is "Kind of." We're working with Alexis and CEA to make sure that the communities we visited have sustainable video storytelling equipment and training. We want to make it our business that emerging startup hubs keep telling these stories, keep affecting lawmaker policy, and increase connectivity between hubs. We're providing a lot of these services probono and securing the funding for equipment packages and local storytelling/advocacy/activism mentorship in each location. Michael Petricone should chime in on this one!!
Is there such a thing as too much freedom on the internet? Let's ask that question once we reign in control, tracking, illegal wiretapping, price fixing, and a bunch of other stuff. Right now I don't think that is a problem that is really in sight...
I am really impressed with Widernet. Getting knowledge to people that otherwise would not have the access to is changing the world. Sometimes I take for granted all the information just at my fingertips when I access the internet. Allowing a database with eGranary to spread knowledge on a local network in countries that couldn't afford the internet is amazing work. I was wondering if you all know of any example of any type of censoring when these databases are installed in certain countries? I'm hoping it gets there as is. I'll leave this to Cliff or Nick, but just want to say that they're not only an incredible project, they are also incredible people. And insightful on all range of social justice/internet freedom/poverty alleviation topics!
If you could remove one website from existence, what would it be? Pick your mainstream news site. These guys are doing shitty journalism. And it hurts my soul. And every single journalist reporting for these sites has a secret pain. A nagging doubt... "what have I done? what am I part of? can i really do anything to change all this...i've been backed into a corner and there are no paying alternatives anywhere in journalism. someone please help me. please, help me change." But they can't because journalism (and investigative journalism in particular) is on life support. The end.
Well! This is like my favorite topic. I actually teach a course about this as faculty at School of the Museum of Fine Arts. I have always been a bit anti-deskjob (possibly to my detriment), so I run around finding fun projects, pouring my all into them, and then desperately trying to break even on life/rent/project costs. It's always worked out well. I was able to start Danger!Awesome laser cutting and 3d printing this way with no money and is pretty much the system I rely on to extend /explore the idea of "things I love" and to fund those things. Any specific questions about how I fell into this program/approach? Someone gave me reddit gold for this post. I never dreamed it would happen to me (seriously, not joking - even though it seems trivial) and the fact that it was for this comment brings so much joy to my heart. Thank you!
After the safety of the Internet, what is, in your opinion, the biggest problem facing the world? The increasing distance between rich and poor - a root cause of many environmental, legal, and economic problems.
You called yourselves a gaggle... should I be inclined to believe that Reddit is run by geese? 100% geese powered. It's a very green company. Nimblebot takes the refuse and makes artisinal cheeses and cleans feathers, it's where we make our money - film doesn't pay bills, just warms hearts. A symbiotic relationship if ever I saw one.
Now you know. Good to see Charles got off crutches and back into the office!
Hello All! Thanks for taking the time! I'd like to get your opinion concerning the following: Also, I was wondering if you could share your thoughts concerning Danny Hillis' TED talk which was just recently added to the TED collection. Haven't seen Hillis' talk, thank you for the synopsis. Sounds fascinating - and true. In retrospect, things like slash and burn farming, or single-crop farming are so obviously stupid - because often times people knew what they were doing wasn't sustainable. Is that what we are doing here? Likely. Our use of rare earth metals is not sustainable. Our use of network infrastructure is not efficient. I saw a google shirt recently that was a turtle on roller skates...that's what the internet infrastructure is to me: a flaming pile or kluges going at light speed. So...yes, it would be nice to have some social, hardware, or mesh backups of some kind.
If you haven't seen it; Hillis argues that that the internet has become so integrated into our daily routine that we often times don't even realize we are using it (buying gasoline with a credit card, for instance). He warns that too much dependency could lead to disaster in the future if the internet were to suddenly crash and there was no proper backup, or plan b, in place. Thoughts? Ok I will favor the second point here. I think you are right to bring up the first point and agree: there is a huge amount of "primacy" talk and internal contradiction in legislation. Even good legislation. There is certainly no "kantian ontological imperative" talk at play in America's foreign policy, for whatever that is worth.
Whats the best way to educate those that are uninformed on this issue (the elderly, the younger, the uninvolved, etc.)? See some of my thoughts in other comments on the importance of ubiquitous digital video storytelling/storytelling training. If we're all bringing forward polished, articulate, diverse approaches and disseminate this messaging together, we can really do a lot. It only takes a few of us working in tandem to really get something like this going!
Nadeem, this is Jesse... How are you? Awesome that you're doing this AMA. My man! Funny that we have to use the internet to connect. Come by soon :D.
Steve Huffman will be speaking at my college on Friday about entrepreneurship, and founding Reddit and Hipmunk. What questions would you ask him? Would you rather fight 1 alexis sized horse or 100 duck sized alexis'?
What in the fuck is this? That is the worst explanation of socialism ever, and the best part is: SYRIA IS BAATHIST, NOT SOCIALIST. Good job spreading horrible messages. I agree that this explanation of socialism is wrong. But it is the cutest video ever and probably the way that socialism would actually be taught to 5 year olds in an american classroom. Also the video literally says "explain like I'm 5" in the title. So you have to hand it to them for going for "crisis in syria", no?
Do you think bitcoin will flourish? And, with the value going up every single day, are you hoarding your btc or cashing out? I think that for bitcoin to really flourish there needs to be an analogy for the cryptographic underpinnings that lay people can understand. A simple 1 minute animation about how you can take control of the standard of your own money, some of the benefits, but an emphasis on how the heck this thing really works!
Alexis, can you post in /DailyDouble? We're looking for celebrity endorsements and you'll do. You might be rewarded with flair. This is a big opportunity Alexis, you should do it. Things might really take off for you if you can focus up and take advantage of this great offer.
Nadeem, When do you sleep? Is it standing up? Ha! Honestly, I used to just sleep mostly during class in undergrad. Made my nights extremely productive. Now there's no class though - I'm like several years out and I haven't had sleep since like 2006.
Who's your favorite redditor? Besides kn0thing and hueypriest? youvegotapoint. or in real life? trickygonzalez.
Can you, please, delete the Pyongyang subreddit? It is very offensive. You make a very good point. What are you going to do about it?
If you comply with my request I shall allow reddit to remain private when I conquer the country hosting its servers. I will also arrest no more than ten percent of your active users in any given month. Failure to comply...well, we'll cross that bridge when we get there. I like where your head's at. Tell me more about puppet reddit governments: what mods are you liking right now?
The DPRK will liberate the oppressed peoples of the world! The DPRK will be the vanguard to bring you into the brave new socialist world we will create together! Dude, I am psyched about it. Now, don't be coy with me, what's rodman's cabinet position? I know you've got something incredible in store. Don't make me be all house-of-cards-journalist to get this information out of you.
Can we get back to talking about silicon prairie please? I would love that. Please venture a question!
Dammit... Does it have any nudity? Yes, a single frame. Update us when you find it.
