NSA Has Been Tracking Bitcoin Users Since 2013, New Snowden Documents Reveal

from ZeroHedge:

During his 2015 trial, Silk Road creator Ross Ulbricht’s defense attorneys raised questions about the government’s case that, although they were ultimately disregarded by the jury, have continued to bother crypto users with an affinity for so-called “conspiracy theories.” They pointed out vagaries in the FBI’s account of its years-long pursuit of Ulbricht, and questioned whether the bureau had truly discovered Ulbricht’s involvement on its own, or whether it had help from other deep state elements, namely the National Security Agency.

Of course, the judge, who eventually sentenced Ulbricht to life in prison without the possibility of parole, refused to entertain their argument. But if they were correct, it would mean that the government’s whole case was built on evidence that was ultimately inadmissible.

Soros Propaganda Hit Machine Center for American Progress Fires Staffers for Leaks About UAE Influence

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

CAP is getting massive amounts of money from the United Arab Emirates. Leftists allying with jihadists is nothing new, and here is the money trail.

This is no surprise. The Center for American Progress (CAP) has long been at war with the defenders of freedom.

It is the producer of the notorious report on “islamofauxbia,”

“Fear, Inc.,” which risibly claimed that distrust of Muslims in the U.S. was not because of jihad attacks, Islamic supremacism, stealth jihad, creeping Sharia, and all the rest, but because of “islamophobia.”

George Soros Listed As 2nd Most Influential Figure In Ukraine

from Humans Are Free:

A prominent Ukrainian news organization has named George Soros, the man behind the far-left, pro-globalization Open Society Foundation, as the second-most influential figure in Ukraine, just behind the country’s head of state – Volodymyr Zelensky.

In its recent piece titled “Top 100 most influential people and events in Ukraine”, the Kiev-based newspaper Vesti ranked George Soros, the Hungarian-American billionaire financier, and social engineer, as the country’s second-most influential figure.

The Budget-Busting $1.3 Trillion Spending Bill That Was Just Passed By Congress Is A Betrayal Of The American People

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

I don’t know if I even have the words to express how disgusted I am with the omnibus spending bill that was just rushed through Congress. Members of the House of Representatives were given less than 24 hours to read this 2,232 page monstrosity of a bill before they were expected to vote on it, and so obviously nobody was able to read the entire thing before the vote was held. This is the kind of thing that Democrats were greatly criticized for in the past, but now it is Republicans that are doing it. The Republican Party is supposed to stand for limited government, and this is yet another example that shows how badly broken the system in Washington has become.

I am running for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district, and I want to make it exceedingly clear that I would have voted against this bill. In addition to fully funding Planned Parenthood, this bill also funds a whole host of other liberal priorities. But other than an increase in military spending, conservative priorities are almost entirely ignored by this bill.

Google operating like a news publisher, Project Veritas leaks reveal

from Natural News:

Google is operating more like a news publisher than a neutral platform it claims to be in leaked documents exposed by Project Veritas that could change the tech industry forever.

(Article republished from Infowars.com)

The data dump contains internal memos and emails describing how Google channels content to users – and how “challenging” it can be when the content “does not represent the views” of Google or its employees.

DOJ investigating ‘non-governmental organizations and individuals’ as part of ‘broad’ probe into surveillance abuses

from True Pundit:

As part of its ongoing “multifaceted” and “broad” review into potential misconduct by U.S. intelligence agencies during the 2016 presidential campaign, the Justice Department revealed Monday it is also investigating the activities of several “non-governmental organizations and individuals.”

Additionally, the DOJ announced that the probe, let by Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, was looking into the involvement of “foreign intelligence services.” Former Trump aide George Papadopoulos told Fox News last month that an informant who was likely “CIA and affiliated with Turkish intel” had posed as a Cambridge University research assistant in September 2016 and tried to “seduce him” to obtain information linking the Trump team to Russia.

The Gamification of Tyranny

0

by Kurt Nimmo, Washington’s Blog:

It looks like we’re headed for a brave new world where all citizens are rated on their loyalty to the state and are punished for wandering from its narrative.

Call it the gamification of repression.

In China, the supposedly communist state—in fact, it is an advanced form of crony capitalist authoritarianism that Marx would have disapproved—is busy setting up a rating system for all citizens. According to a paper written by an academic at the Lebanese American University in Beirut, Lebanon, scores are based on professional conduct, corruption, type of products bought, peers’ own scores, and tax evasion.

Prime Minister of Poland Signs Global Appeal to Stop 5G

by Julian Rose, Activist Post:

In what is surely an unprecedented and  groundbreaking action, the Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki, has personally backed an International Appeal to stop the controversial roll-out of 5G electromagnetic microwave telecommunication transmissions.

5G, a new millimetre band frequency range being introduced by the telecommunications industry worldwide has been identified by over 2,000 scientists and 1,400 medical doctors from all over the world, as presenting a direct threat to human health, as well as to animal, insect and plant life.

There have been no safety tests carried out to ensure its safety, in spite of the fact that 5G operates at between 10 and 100 times higher frequencies than current 3 and 4G cell phone tower transmitters.

My Encounter with the Deep State At and I Am Lucky to be Alive

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

Indeed, I have met the Arizona mafia and opposed them and because of a recent article, I know that I am lucky to be alive. And much of what people write about today (eg child sex trafficking as part of a Deep State operation), I have met and opposed these people as they attempted to steal my land and that of 300 of my neighbors without compensation.

Jefferey Peterson

One of my readers (Jim) sent me this three part series on the Arizona mafia. The mafia is not tied to Sicily, the Russians or Italy. It is a socio-political organization of high profile American and Mexican politicians and many of the Americans are intimately connected to Deep State interests.

Bolton Open to Hiring For-Profit Mercenaries in Washington’s 17-Year Afghan War

from Sputnik News:

White House national security adviser John Bolton stated on Sunday that he is interested in a proposal by Erik Prince – founder of private military company Blackwater – to shift the prosecution of the 17-year US war in Afghanistan away from the Pentagon to private mercenaries.

Bolton — an appointee of US President Donald Trump like Blackwater founder Prince’s sister US Secretary of Education Betsy Devos — made his remarks earlier during an ABC.com weekly news program.
