Banksters officially declare war on Bitcoin!

globinfo freexchange

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon's recent statement about Bitcoin could be considered the official war declaration on the digital currency by the global financial mafia.


Dimon's remarks were quite impressive:

"It's worse than tulip bulbs. It won't end well. Someone is going to get killed," Dimon said at a banking industry conference organized by Barclays. "Currencies have legal support. It will blow up." Dimon also said he'd "fire in a second" any JPMorgan trader who was trading bitcoin, noting two reasons: "It's against our rules and they are stupid."

One probably can't tell what is worse: Dimon's audacity, cynicism or hypocrisy? A top executive of the Wall Street syndicate that caused the great financial crisis of 2007-08, as well as endless other financial bubbles, while rescued by the US state with billions of taxpayers' dollars, speaks about 'legal support'!

But beyond that, what's probably even more impressive, is that Dimon essentially admitted what the establishment apparatus would probably describe as 'conspiracy theory' until now. Therefore:

  • Speaking about 'legal support', Dimon actually admitted that the banking mafia fully controls every government at least in the neoliberal West. Under the legitimacy provided by the parliaments in Western democracies, the financial criminal syndicate secures the monopoly of money supply and fully controls the circulation of currency. At the same time, governments obey to the neoliberal perception of the 'free market' fairytale, in order to justify more and more deregulation of the financial system in favor of the banking cartels.

  • As a consequence, Dimon clearly revealed banksters' agony that they could lose the monopoly and absolute control of the global currency circulation by Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.

The war was verified by the fact that “Bitcoin fell to its session lows after Dimon's comments. As of 3:01 p.m. in New York, bitcoin traded at $4,106.23, down 2 percent.

And it didn't stop there. As MarketWatch reported, “Bitcoin and other digital currencies have been getting absolutely toasted in recent trading, with some wondering if withering criticism from Wall Street heavyweights, like J.P. Morgan Chase’s CEO, and growing regulatory scrutiny in China have finally combined to exact a punishing, and lasting, toll on one of the most bubblicious segments of finance. On Thursday, the value of a single bitcoin was down about 14% at $3,349, compared with around $5,000 in early September and representing a roughly $27 billion loss of market value in the world’s No. 1 cryptocurrency, according to digital-currency site Coinmarketcap.com. Ether tokens, the second-most popular digital currency, were down 17% on the day at $230 in recent action. That equates to a loss of more than $16 billion in total value for the currency running on the Ethereum blockchain.


Why Dimon has chosen to declare war now?

One possible explanation could be related to a recent statement made by the Head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), Kirill Dmitriev, that the BRICS are considering to create their own cryptocurrency for the purposes of global commerce.

Such a move could help BRICS to decouple economies from the Western neoliberal monetary monopoly, even faster. With the technology of more powerful computers in close future that could 'mine' cryptocurrencies at much faster rate, the number of people who will choose to abandon traditional currencies may rise rapidly. Those who will set-up such a de-centralized financial system, will gain a great advantage against the obsolete system of traditional currencies controlled by central banks.

Even entire countries may choose to jump into the new system, in order to escape from the monopoly of the Western hard currencies. The most characteristic example is Greece. Many in Greece are considering Bitcoin and other alternative currencies as a solution against the monetary dictatorship of the ECB.

Recall that, with the rise of SYRIZA in power, and the ECB was forced to proceed in an open financial coup against Greece when the current PM, Alexis Tsipras, decided to conduct a referendum on the catastrophic measures imposed by the ECB, IMF and the European Commission, through which the Greek people clearly rejected these measures, despite the propaganda of terror inside and outside Greece. Due to the direct threat from Mario Draghi and the ECB, who actually threatened to cut liquidity sinking Greece into a financial chaos, Tsipras finally forced to retreat, signing another catastrophic memorandum.

All the above could explain to a significant degree why Dimon and his 'buddies' have declared war on Bitcoin. Yet, simultaneously prove that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies should become completely independent from the system of the dominant traditional currencies in order to survive and prevail.

  1. The mining of crypto-currencies is the manufacturing of pure waste:http://cobblehillbilly.blogspot.com/2016/07/the-glib-shit-that-is-bitcoin.html
    Fiat money costs next to nothing to produce while the crypto-currencies rely an huge, environmentally destructive energy wast as their commodity peg to "real wealth" but in fact are pegging themselves to pure waste.

    Popularly, democratically controlled fiat money systems are the most efficient, the trick is to take back control from the Mafia: the money isn't the problem, its who controls it that is.

WikiLeaks paper reveals US empire was becoming anxious about Venezuela adopting euro and directing exports to China

The WIKILEAKS Public Library of US Diplomacy (PlusD)holds the world's largest searchable collection of United States confidential, or formerly confidential, diplomatic communications. As of April 8, 2013 it holds 2 million records comprising approximately 1 billion words. The collection covers US involvements in, and diplomatic or intelligence reporting on, every country on earth. It is the single most significant body of geopolitical material ever published. The PlusD collection, built and curated by WikiLeaks, is updated from a variety of sources, including leaks, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and documents released by the US State Department systematic declassification review.

Russiagate collapse shows CIA black propaganda loops are obsolete and ineffective

In his documentary The Power Of Nightmares, Adam Curtis presents the case of William Casey, head of the CIA under Reagan administration.
As has been described previously, to persuade the President, the neoconservatives set out to prove that the Soviet threat was far greater than anyone. They would demonstrate that the majority of terrorism and revolutionary movements around the world, were actually part of a secret network, coordinated by Moscow to take over the world.
The main proponent of this theory was a leading neoconservative who was the special adviser to the Secretary of State. His name was Michael Ledeen and he had been influenced by a best-selling book called "The Terror Network". It alleged that terrorism was not the fragmented phenomenon that it appeared to be. In reality, all terrorist groups, from the PLO to the Baader-Meinhof Group in Germany and the provisional IRA, all of them, were a part of coordinated strategy of terror run by the Soviet…

Arrest of Julian Assange: the last remaining leaf of the fascist neoliberal regime drops - we are now at war

globinfo freexchange
What other proof would you need to convince yourself that we already live under a global-scale fascist regime whose headquarters are located in the US evil empire?
This is a war against real journalism. It is a direct threat against all the independent media with real journalists who expose the war crimes of the empire and its allies. After this, expect an ongoing, brutal hunt against every real journalist who will attempt to report the truth, contrary the corporate PR parrots of the mainstream media - the golden operatives of the establishment, who faithfully stick to the script.
The utter joke of 'anti-establishment' Donald Trump collapsed from his first day in the US presidency, but now, its repulsive ugliness has been revealed gloriously. While Donnie was actually praising WikiLeaks before his election, he now said that "I know nothing about Wikileaks. It's not my thing".

A message for the worst liberal establishment ever: don't you dare harm Julian Assange

by system failure
The neoliberal clowns of the Western mainstream media increasingly shed crocodile tears about what they consider 'fake news' and the rise of the far right.
The hypocrisy and absurdity of the whole thing will make you laugh loud. Because these are the PR agents of the corporations behind the mainstream media who brought us Trump and the far right.
These are the cheerleaders of endless wars, and in fact, the only time they supported Trump was when he bombed Syria.
This is the ugly face of the establishment that pretends to be the gatekeeper of 'real news', while everyone else is 'fake news'. It doesn't matter if they work 24 hours a day to brainwash you with BS neoliberal and pro-war propaganda. You know, just to maintain this awful status in favor of their super-wealthy bosses.
It's not new. They did it for decades and it worked. People back then were like blind rats whose sole information was coming from the mainstream media. There were n…

The ruthless neo-colonialists of 21st century

by system failure
The start of current decade revealed the most ruthless face of a global neo-colonialism. From Syria and Libya to Europe and Latin America, the old colonial powers of the West tried to rebound against an oncoming rival bloc led by Russia and China, which starts to threaten their global domination.
Inside a multi-polar, complex terrain of geopolitical games, the big players start to abandon the old-fashioned, inefficient direct wars. They use today other, various methods like brutal proxy wars, economic wars, financial and constitutional coups, provocative operations, 'color revolutions', etc. In this highly complex and unstable situation, when even traditional allies turn against each other as the global balances change rapidly, the forces unleashed are absolutely destructive. Inevitably, the results are more than evident.

Bernie Sanders campaign announced something extraordinary for the US political standards. It has raised $18.2 million from just under 900,000 individual donations since launching 41 days ago!
As commondreamsreported:
Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign announced Tuesday that it raised $18.2 million from just under 900,000 individual donations since launching 41 days ago.
Sanders' first quarter haul tops all other 2020 Democratic candidates who have reported their fundraising totals. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) raised $12 million in the first quarter, and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg raised $7 million.
Faiz Shakir, Sanders' campaign manager, said during a press call that 88 percent of the donations were $200 or less, and the average donation was $20.
The profession with the most donors to Sanders' campaign was teachers, according to Shakir.
In total, 525,000 individuals donated to Sanders' campaig…

Tulsi Gabbard bravely defends Julian Assange on a US deep state platform

Here is another proof that she, or Jill Stein, should be the next US president if we want to escape from the fascist neocon/neoliberal regime - sorry Bernie, but your silence is very disturbing
globinfo freexchange
Many progressives feel extremely disappointed for the fact that the only 2020 Democrat progressive candidate who clearly defended one of the few remaining real journalists against the neocon/neoliberal fascist regime, is Tulsi Gabbard.
We still hope that Bernie Sanders will eventually take a clear position in favor of Julian Assange.
Nevertheless, in dark times like the one we are experiencing, things become more clear. We can see who is the one that will defend bravely the interests of the people against the totalitarian complex of Wall Street, corporate cabal and US deep state.
Tulsi Gabbard, and of course Jill Stein, are the best options right now for the 2020 US presidency, if we really want to see a radical change for the benefit of the American people and the world.

Juan Guaido confesses being behind the sabotage of Venezuela’s electric system

Translated from the Spanish by Global Research
A confession from [America’s] puppet pointing to evidence,” said journalist Gustavo Villapol Wednesday, noting that the deputy of the National Assembly in contempt Juan Guaidó confessed to be behind the attacks perpetrated against the National Electric Service (SEN) that have affected the Venezuelan people since last March 7.
The gentleman, Deputy Guaidó, has told the world that they are behind this devious and terrorist attack against the Electric System,” he said during an interview on the Punto de Encuentro program broadcast by Venezolana de Televisión.
[These are the quotations from Guaido’s statements at the National Assembly, video below 13′ 11″ – 14′ 09″, GR editor]
And I repeat, the cessation of darkness will definitely come with the cessation of usurpation,” culminates the self-proclaimed Juan Guaidó (VTV Fotogram)

Assange’s arrest will massively backfire – further expose ‘Democratic West’ as harbingers of global police-state

by Don DeBar
The arrest of Wikileak’s Julian Assange will, in the long term, do more to expose the real nature of the so-called democratic West than 100 document dumps could ever do.
It has exposed the following:
Freedom of the press is non-existent in the US and EU. Should one publish materials exposing criminal activity by the powerful, that publisher – not the powerful criminal who has been exposed – will be criminally prosecuted.
The idea of an independent judiciary is farcical – the on-again/off-again nature of the charges in the Swedish courts, as well as the Torqmada-esque secret proceedings in the US which are certainly driving them, show that prosecutions can target and be controlled across borders to exact political vengeance.
Elections in the west are a farce, and the US meddles in these in the same way Kasparov ‘meddles’ with a chess board.
Lenin Moreno was elected to continue the program of his predecessor – and primary supporter before the election – former president of Ecuad…

US military attack on Venezuela mulled by top Trump advisors and Latin American officials at private DC meeting

Away from the public eye, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) think tank hosted a top-level, off-the-record meeting to explore US military options against Venezuela.
by Max Blumenthal
Part 1
The Washington, DC-based think tank the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) hosted a private roundtable on April 10 called “Assessing the Use of Military Force in Venezuela.” A list of attendees was provided to The Grayzone and two participants confirmed the meeting took place. They refused to offer any further detail, however.
Among the roughly 40 figures invited to the off-the-record event to discuss potential US military action against Caracas were some of the most influential advisors on President Donald Trump’s Venezuela policy. They included current and former State Department, National Intelligence Council, and National Security Council officials, along with Admiral Kurt Tidd, who was until recently the commander of US SOUTHCOM.
Senior officials from the C…
