Find Out Why Institutions Will Flood the Bitcoin Market

As originally written via CoinLive: (improved reading experience)
Back in 2017, the blockchain industry experienced an unprecedented interest which ended in what is often referred in financial terms as “irrational exuberance”, with a large portion of the rally led by retail-type investors flooding the market to ultimately chase prices at illogically hefty levels based on the infancy stage of the technological advancements and its implementations.
That rise was too fast too quick and eventually, in early January 2018, the bubble-like move came to an abrupt end. The question now is, what will it take for another sustainable bull run to materialize? At CoinLive, we will inspect the key missing pieces of the puzzle. In this article, we will investigate the ever-growing list of evidence that shows why a new type of investors, the institutional ones, looks set to enter the market in mass.
The two critical impediments for the ‘smart money’ to have been on the sidelines are clearly identifiable. Firstly, it has to do with custodianship, in other words, having formal mechanisms that allow the safe storage of the asset. Secondly, the regulation around the crypto market must be clarified with clearer guidance.
When it comes to the first missing piece of custodianship, the NY Times recently helped shed a light on where we are headed. The influential newspaper reported that ICE (Intercontinental Exchange), which is the parent company behind the NY Stock Exchange (NYSE), is working confidentially in the implementation of swap contracts for banks and large investors that will be settled with the physical delivery of Bitcoin.
For ICE to even consider this idea it means that the problem of legal custodianship is being worked out so that the backing and security of Bitcoins by the NYSE will be in place. This will open the floodgates to a whole new market, where the King of cryptos and other digital assets down the road become available to a much wider and more influential customer base. We are certainly at a stage where institutions have recognized that Bitcoin is “too big to ignore”.
What’s also important is that by using a swap contract, the trading of Bitcoins will be oversight under the existing regulatory framework of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, hence less regulatory uncertainty.
As a reminder, the CFTC is headed by J. Christopher Giancarlo, who is a proclaimed pro-blockchain endorser after his popular appearance in front of a U.S. Senate hearing on blockchain technology last February, where he famously said: “We owe it to this generation to respect their interest in this new technology.”
Moreover, earlier this year, Boston-based State Street, the world’s second-largest custody bank with around £24tn in assets under custody and administration, came out to announce that safeguarding clients' digital assets could be a service they are looking to provide a solution in the near future. If confirmed, it would represent a major move as it sets a precedent as the first global bank to provide custodianship services for crypto-related investments.
While Bitcoin is not serving its initially intended purpose as a widely used method of payments (for now), it has found another appeal as a store of value that is uncorrelated to any other asset class, hence it has an exceptional use as a hedging strategy for multi-billion dollar portfolios to help reduce the overall volatility.
Other stories strengthening the notion of institutional capital set to come into the cryptoverse include the news that Goldman Sachs will be trading futures contracts linked to Bitcoin’s price as an initial step, only to gradually transition into a more direct trading of buying and selling actual Bitcoins.
Find our recent article where we explain why Goldman Sachs trading Bitcoin is such a big deal.
Even the chief executive of Nasdaq, Adena Friedman, recently said considerations were being given to set up a virtual-currency exchange should the needed regulatory framework be resolved.
Additionally, we have seen a growing trend of senior-level executives at institutional firms flocking off the safety of their well-established positions to venture into blockchain-related jobs. We include a few articles with evidence below:
Goldman Sachs Executives are Moving to Cryptocurrency Hedge Funds
Mike Novogratz Makes Goldman VP the COO of His Crypto Company
Coinbase Hires Ex-Barclays Director to Expand Its Institutional Client Base
Commonwealth Bank CFO to Lead Block.one as President and COO
The migration in job positions from traditional financial markets into blockchain comes as no surprise and quite frankly, it appears to be a logical and rational step to be taken, especially in light of the new revenue streams the blockchain sector has to offer.
Proof of that is the fact that Binance, a crypto exchange with around 200 employees and less than 1 year of operations has overcome Deutsche Bank, which has more than 100,000 employees and over 150 years of history, in total profits. What this communicates is that the opportunities to grow an institution’s revenue stream is formidable once they decide to integrate cryptocurrencies into their business models.
Another piece of the puzzle, even if occurring behind closed doors, is the consideration to launch a Bitcoin ETF. Back in April, it was reported that the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has put back on the table two Bitcoin ETF proposals, according to public documents. The agency is under formal proceedings to approve a rule change that would allow NYSE Arca to list two exchange-traded funds (ETFs) proposed by fund provider ProShares.
The introduction of an ETF would make Bitcoin available to a much wider share of market participants, with the ability to directly buy the asset at the click of a button, essentially simplifying the current complexity that involves having to deal with all the cumbersome steps currently in place.
More evidence of the emergence of institutions playing a more dominant role in the blockchain industry is the unprecedented interest to amass Bitcoins in the OTC (Over the Counter Market). We perceive this trend as directly linked store Bitcoin as a store of value. This article by Bloomberg should give you a taste of what's happening behind the scenes: The Wealthy Are Hoarding $10 Billion of Bitcoin in Bunkers.
As ConLive recently tweeted: "Our network of Insiders telling us between 5000-10.000 BTC are being sold every week OTC by Chinese BTC miners to Israeli buyers - Wall Street type - as they look to accumulate a big hand in BTC. “
![](https://coinlive.io/ckeditor_assets/pictures/868/content_2018-05-15_0957.png)
Lastly, one of the most critical missing piece is the subject of global regulations. Back in March, Mark Carney, the head of Bank of England and the chief of the Financial Stability Board of G20 stated that “crypto-assets do not pose risks to global financial stability at this time.” That caused a temporary relief in the crypto sphere as the risk of a regulatory backlash was removed for the time being until July, the month when more clarity will be provided.
The chair of the Argentina Central Bank, Federico Sturzenegger, on his role of sitting the G20 summit, said that members showed a unifying view on the need of cryptocurrencies to be supported by a more sound regulatory framework. The policy-maker, however, made it clear that they first need to examine the cryptocurrencies universe to gather the necessary data before proposing regulations.
“In July we have to offer very concrete, very specific recommendations on, not ‘what do we regulate?’ but ‘what is the data we need?” Sturzenegger said.
To sum up, the improvements in custodianship solutions, along with more clarity by the G20 committee, which is set to provide less uncertainty for institutional investors’ involvement, is a recipe for a renewed bull wave, this time of institutional capital, to shake up the crypto space.
At CoinLive, we will not venture into the timing, as that is quite irresponsible trying to pretend we have a "crystal ball" to determine when moves will occur. We just simply look at the big picture and try to connect the dots by first breaking down the latest developments to then draw some conclusions. Never forget, markets should always be approached as a numbers' game, and while nothing is certain, we just attempt to envision and inform on scenarios with the highest likelihood.

The reason why fiat has failed is largely due to the global elite purchasing bitcoin. Effectively moving the supply curve right and decreasing demand for paper currency.

Price theory only applies to firms when they face decreasing returns to scale, hence it really doesn't describe many parts of the real economy.

That's why the Republicans will make sure the US famers don't even notice.
They're bring back a depression-era program to subsidize the farmers hurt during the trade war. This should hold over the rural republican voters until the midterm or even the presidential election. They'll just use tax dollars to pay for farmers being hurt by the trade war as long as they keep voting republican.

Cool story
Comment removed from /Economics - shades344 - Created on 07/24/18 14:44:05 UTC - permalink
You are arguing semantics.
If I demand your money (for prection, of course), and that is backed by the threat of violence, that's stealing.
You don't want to call taxes stealing, because the entity doing the stealing also writes the law that defines what is legally theft.
(Note: I think taxes for thepublic good and the threat of punishment for failure to pay are both necessary... But let's not try and pretend it's not stealing.)
Comment removed from /Economics - persolb - Created on 07/24/18 14:46:13 UTC - permalink
That’s so silly. You get a return on your investment in the government. Some people get a shittier return than others, sure. But everyone benefits from the programs that taxes provide.
Calling it stealing is silly.

I also get a return on my investment when I pay a protection racket... And every that pays gets the benefit
Comment removed from /Economics - persolb - Created on 07/24/18 14:52:49 UTC - permalink
It’s so ridiculous to call taxes stealing. We elect officials to represent us, they enact taxation laws, which represent our interests. What are we stealing from ourselves? Silly...
Comment removed from /Economics - Finally_Adult - Created on 07/24/18 14:56:10 UTC - permalink
You have a very optimistic view on government.
51% of the population votes in people to then take away everything some other subset of the population has. This isn't stealing?
(Note: this has happened in multiple counties, and this article is talking about a WAY waterered down version of this)
Comment removed from /Economics - persolb - Created on 07/24/18 14:59:30 UTC - permalink
Everything? That’s a bit hyperbolic wouldn’t you say?
If people don’t participate in voting is that somehow the other people’s fault?
I understand government is inefficient, I don’t like the way all of it is spent for sure. But that doesn’t make taxes stealing.

Comment removed from /Economics - internal69audit - Created on 07/24/18 15:01:42 UTC - permalink
You missed my point. If 51% want to take your shit, they can legally do it. Your vote doesn't help at all.
Would you see this different than theft?
Comment removed from /Economics - persolb - Created on 07/24/18 15:04:15 UTC - permalink
Ahh I see what you mean. I see you’ve turned a representative democracy into “stealing other people’s shit”
“Shit” costs money. Government provides services. If you don’t want to live in a state that provides government services there are a few available to move to.
Isn’t that a lot of the right-wing’s arguments? Don’t like how things are done: move.
There are checks and balances for a reason. Nobody’s coming for more than your fair share. You may disagree on what your fair share is, so I suggest voting. It’s never going to be 0, and above 0 isn’t stealing.

Shouldn't we have the revenue from the tariffs to use for things like this?

and how that is simply not what was intended by founding fathers/constitution. Tyranny of the minority is worse than tyranny of the majority...
Cue routine response that the nation was supposed to be a union of coequal, sovereign states, not a republic where we collectively choose our leaders. So in that model a rural state with 1% of the population of CA would be equal in power to CA. There is no way rural states are going to willingly give up the disproportionate power they have. They're going to take any effort to have their votes count the same as other citizens as them being disenfranchised.

Maine lobster has been cheap for years because of a glut caused by ocean warming which drove the lobster population north, right into the Maine coast. Science!

Hyperbole aside the Legislative system is designed to specifically give disproportionate power to states with smaller populations. Tyranny of the majority is a real concern when we think about political balance of power.

While 5 dollar lobster sounds great and all, it's not really related to the topic.
Also proof, or it didn't happen..

1: Promise farmers and coal miners that you are their president and will fight for them.
2: Start a trade war that directly damages the farmers and coal miners
3: Use tax dollars to subsidize your inability to make any meaningful policy to fulfill your promise to the farmers and coal miners.
4: Get millions of votes from farmers and coal miners.
This is the world we live in.

Sure, but the current issue has more to do with the parts the Constitution left unaddressed rather than vice versa. Also, a tyranny of the minority can be overcome or contained, tyranny of the majority is rather absolute.

What? That was the exact intention of the founding fathers, that even little states the rest of the country considers backwater would be able to have a say: that's literally the point of the electoral college.

It's not only that though, the Senate cuts down on the power of Gerrymandering. You can't cut up a state so that it's Senate representation is wildly unlike it's demographic. However the problem with that is then you get crazy things like North Dakota having the same representation as California in the Senate.
I think the real problem is the fact that Democracy is too much work for most people who live in the modern world. "Government of the People" requires The People to do the actual work of governing, and in our case they have totally abandoned their duties.

You are equating having your vote count the same as mine as living under a tyranny. There is no system where rural states don't have disproportionate power that wouldn't count as a tyranny to them. Rural states aren't worried about balance of power, rather they're worried about preserving their disproportionate power.
"Balance" for them is not between the citizens of our country (that they count as 'tyranny') but between states, as if they are sovereign and independent coequal entities. A model under which a state with 1% the population of CA would still have equal sway over the laws of the nation. You didn't rebut anything I said, merely reiterate it.

Rural states have disproportionate power by design. Which is a good thing. For a long time this country was under the tyranny of the majority, so the concern over minority power is very real. The issue here isn't that minority groups shouldn't be have disproportionate political power, but rather that the majority cannot effectively wield theirs. This is due to technology and lack of campaign finance regulations, not because rural states have too much power.

I did rebut what you said, you're insinuating that rural states having disproportionate power is a bad thing. It's not, they should fight to keep the current design of the government. That's necessary to prevent large and powerful states from unilaterally dictating the course of the country. That's something that's been in place by design since the inception of this country. You're attributing the current political climate to the wrong cause.

The most significant example of the tyranny of the minority is slavery, which took over two centuries to dismantle and still affects us to this day.
The article you linked has less to do with what we are currently discussing and more to do with the concentration of power in the hands of a smaller powerful group of people. That issue applies to all states equally, be they rural or the Californias and Texases of the Union.

I think the key here is that the constitution was written with the 13 colonies in mind. I don't think the founding fathers had any idea that we would end up with 50 states spanning both oceans, so I think we have a far greater disparity than they ever imagined we would.

I'm much less concerned with what the Founding Fathers than with whether something is practical or not. The Founding Fathers designed an excellent system for their time and the philosophy guiding their design was very forward thinking. I don't think that rural states are in the wrong for trying to push their interests nor do I think that the manner in which they do so is insidious. The same tools after all, are available to all states. I think the far bigger issues are the things that the Founders didn't address. I don't think they realized just how much special interests could affect politics. The political class was fairly small at the time and the political system of the first four Presidents pales in complexity when compared to the late 20th and 21st century.
I think that there are far too few rules concerning how we elect our leaders and far too few rules concerning money in politics.

Comment removed from /Economics - papeold - Created on 07/24/18 16:34:19 UTC - permalink
No, that was the point of the Senate.
The impact slavery had on the electoral college is undeniable -- the south would not accept one-person, one-vote (and obviously wouldn't let blacks vote), and hence the vile 3/5ths compromise and the need for a system other than popular vote for the presidency.
And likewise gerrymandering of the House has become a perversion. Layering the impact on the judicial branch by virtue of the appointment process, and we have minority of population being able to control all the branches of government... that is not what was intended.

Right. “Balance” to them is that 10 square miles of mostly trees, vegetation, and crops should have more say than 10 square miles where a few million actual people reside.

Honestly, it’s because Democrats have a hard time describing their position.
If they pick up the argument that we can’t pay for these things, Republicans will agree and ask to slash government spending across the board. That hurts Democrats politically (weakening public sector union workforce) and electorally (constituents everywhere have services reduced). This is a downward cycle as the country begins to lose faith in government and the idea that “government is the problem” spreads leading to more cuts in the future.
Democrats need to get aggressive and actually play the game by “holding possession.” This means sayin we’d be happy to provide subsidies for hurting farmers, but first you have to pay for X. That could be healthcare, education, infrastructure, or whatever.

with crypto in congress thought i should run? what do you all think? enough to get in?

First, I am a noob, but am hoping to keep this straight forward. I'm a very middle of the road vanilla person who isn't really interested in much but am very passionate about bitcoin and crypto currency. With the US Senate hearings this week I thought we need more pro-crypto folks up in Washington. It looks like the seat for congress is open where I live and I'm considering running. However, I don't really have any other desire for any other platform than to advance crypto currency into the main stream. My question for the community is, is this enough? I"m not a programmer or a developer, I sold dell computers in 2010 when i first heard about bitcoin from an intern and told him i'd rather buy WOW gold as I was eating 1 pop tart packet a day to have money to pay bills lol. Fast forward to 2018 I've watched every video from the Princeton Lecture Series on Crypto, read Andreas's books, convineced friends and family to buy eth and btc, and even started alt trading. My initial thoughts are that as I live in a more rural area that has seen towns rise and fall with both the industrial revolution and railroads that I could utilize this as the main hook for "outsiders" who don't yet get the space. Adopting a similar platform that northern Nevada and Canada have taken to attract miners and overall open the community to the landscape of Crypto. I could utilize this to reduce regulations and increase incentives in my district to then offer the hope that with this, jobs and innovation would ideally result in the future. However I'm just reaching out to the community to see if this platform is really enough and if it is what else I need to brush up on to actually do this and win. Here's looking at ya'll....let me know.

Hello, I summarized what I could find out about Bitcoin for my convenience, thought you might find it useful.

First introduced in 2008, Bitcoin is the first example of a peer-to-peer cryptographic currency.
In Bitcoin;
• Computers solve randomly created equations, whose difficulty automatically adjusts so that they are solved to the tune of one every ten minutes, regardless of processing power.
• Difficulty of these equations is set to adjust every 2016 blocks, or two weeks. So after significant advances in mining technology (Such as Asic miners) up to two weeks of Bitcoins might be mined in a significantly shorter period of time.
• Through solving these equations “Blocks” are created, which encode all new transactions, and impart a set number of Bitcoins to the solver.
• The number of Bitcoins rewarded per block is set to halve every 210,000 blocks or approximately every four years.
• The current Block reward of Bitcoins is 25 Bitcoins, the reward has been halved once so far. The next halving is set to occur in late 2016.
• This reward structure means that assuming the value of Bitcoins continues to rise, while the total number of new Bitcoins minted yearly may continue to fall, their value might not.
• The total number of Bitcoins is capped at 21 million units, the last of which is expected to be minted in the year 2140 AD.
Regarding Bitcoin;
• Bitcoins are sub-divisible up to the eighth decimal place, although this limit may easily be removed if the value of Bitcoins rises to the point of requiring it.
• This smallest unit (0.00000001 Bitcoins) is currently called a Satoshi, and should cover most needs until valuations of more than a million USD, at which point a Satoshi would be worth 1 us penny.
• The number of possible Bitcoin addresses is 2160 as each address is a 160 byte hash of a public key
Benefits of Bitcoins;
• Bitcoin allows near instant transactions with no required cost, although speeds can be expedited through a reward of approximately 1-5 US cents (0.0001-0.0005 BTC currently) attached to the transaction for the first miner who verifies it.
• This is quite useful for merchants as methods of payment such as credit cards or paypal generally have high fees of up to 3%.
• Wallets can be generated at will, without need of any form of credentials or verification.
• Transactions are unblockable so long as the sending party has access to an internet connection.
• Bitcoin Funds do not exist in any specific country (unlike regular money which even when in digital form must exist in some country) but exists on the internet, and hence essentially in all countries at once.
• Lack of inflation, Bitcoin is designed to prevent any third party from being able to artificially increase the supply of Bitcoins, although minor predetermined inflation will occur through mining until approximately the year 2140.
• Irreversibility of transactions, A Bitcoin transaction confirmed once is essentially irreversible from the sender’s side, reversing transactions before the first confirmation, meanwhile, is possible, but highly difficult, and only useable with goods which are dispatched instantly such as internet downloads.
• Ease of movement, Bitcoin is one of the first means of Capital which is essentially perfectly mobile, as owners of Bitcoin can easily transfer funds(in Bitcoin) over any regional/political boundaries.
History of Bitcoins;
Intro; Bitcoin is currently one of the world’s most volatile currencies, and although the average price of a Bitcoin has been rising continuously when looked at from a yearly point of view, it has several times crashed and lost up to 68 percent of its value over a relatively short period of time.
• This is commonly attributed to Bitcoins similarity to both economic bubbles in the seventeenth century, and the advent of the tcp/ip(internet) protocol in the more recent past.
• After each bubble the total viability of Bitcoin as a currency grew as more people gained Bitcoins, became aware of Bitcoins, as more businesses started accepting Bitcoins, and as more services grew around Bitcoins.
Crashes;
• The first crash in Bitcoins value was in June2011 when Bitcoins price fell from a high of 32 USD to a low of 2 USD.
• The second crash occurred approximately seven months later in January 2012 when Bitcoins price fell from a high of 7.20 USD to a low of 4.6 USD , eventually settling at around 6.23 USD
• The third crash occurred another seven months later in August 2012, when Bitcoins price fell from a high of 15.25 USD to a low of 7.5 USD.
• Two mini crashes occurred approximately another seven months later in March 2013, when Bitcoins price twice fell from a high of 49 USD to a low of around 34 USD, Bitcoin ended the month on a high note however at above 90 USD.
• The fourth crash occurred a month after these two mini-crashes in April 2013 when Bitcoins Price fell from a high of 266 USD to a low of approximately 54 USD, before settling at a price of around 100 USD around which value it remained until early October 2013
• In early October 2013 the price of Bitcoin once again began to rise, reaching a six month high of approximately 200 USD by the end of the month. Rises in Price continued in November, where the news concerning Bitcoins senate hearing briefly propelled Bitcoins to values of over 1000 usd, before a price correction to approximately 500 USD from where it has since been rising to a current value of approximately 700 USD.
Limits/Criticisms of Bitcoin;
  1. • Bitcoin currently has a transaction limit of 7 per second, due a 1mb per block restriction on Block size, created to prevent block chain bloat. This is quite low compared to Visa’s average of 2000 transactions per second. Bitcoin is currently, however, only averaging one transaction per second, and it is expected that the limit will be removed long before the average number of Bitcoin transactions reaches this point.
  2. • Bitcoins relatively unstable value renders it unsuitable for merchants or as a store of value.
• Supporters of Bitcoin claim that this this relative instability of value only exists as Bitcoin is currently in its introductory stage, and that these fluctuations in value will reach usual levels when Bitcoin approaches it’s true valuation.(estimates of this range from 10 thousand USD per Bitcoin to 1 Million USD per Bitcoin)
• Supporters also point out that services such as Bitpay allow merchants accept Bitcoin while distancing themselves from its risks, as through these services they link the items price in Bitcoins to the conversion rate between Bitcoin and a chosen currency, and through this get paid in their chosen currency, despite accepting Bitcoin.
  1. • Bitcoins once lost are irretrievable. If a Bitcoin key is lost, or the Bitcoins are sent to an inactive or non-existent address there is no recourse by which to re-obtain those Bitcoins.
  2. • Ease of duplicating the Bitcoin code. Although it is impossible to generate fake Bitcoins, critics point out that there is nothing to stop the generation of new and improved versions of Bitcoin, as has already occurred through coins such as Namecoin, or Peercoin.
• Supporters point out several issues with this
• The First school of thought says that Bitcoin has several advantages over altcoins, such as having the greatest amount of services and developers, which form a barrier to success for other crypto currencies. They also point out that Bitcoins great sub-divisibility renders any need for alternate crypto currencies moot, and that if a notable improvement does come out, bitcoin can just build it into their own code.(see colored coins/mastercoin/zerocoin)
• The second school of thought claims that although Alternate coins debuted early enough with significant differences from Bitcoin(see Peercoin, Namecoin, Zerocoin, Primecoin) might manage to capture a portion of the crypto coin market, Bitcoins will remain the most prominent Crypto currency for the foreseeable future.
  1. • Governments/Big banks will not allow Bitcoin to succeed.
• Supporters argue against this point on several fronts claiming;
• Firstly that although some governments might decide to outlaw Bitcoin, or some Big businesses might try to stop it, Crypto currency is a new technology whose time has come and the most such actions will be able to do is to stall/delay the success of Bitcoin, and in the process lose any business generated by Bitcoin.
• Secondly that it would be very difficult to legally stop Bitcoin, as laws outlawing Bitcoin leave several avenues open for lawsuits, and although it might be possible to hinder Bitcoin through inefficient legislation/red tape this would be against a countries best interests, due to potential growth offered by upcoming Bitcoin industries.
edit; some formatting issues occured in the last line, the numbers should go 1 2 3 4 5 6... rather than 1 2 1 2 1 2
The dots and explanation only apply the one point(number) above them not both.

Senator hearing on how to tax Bitcoin. Want to hear your thoughts, how can you do it?

So one of my relatives is an tax attorney for the US Senate and there is a relatively small Senate hearing coming up regarding how to ensure people pay their taxes when using Bitcoins. So I want to hear your thoughts to make some recommendation to him, how can you do it?
My thoughts: geolocation on both the sender and receiver's side and require merchants to register their wallet addresses? Maybe even geolocation for miners or require them to register their machines and locations in order to make geolocation of transactions possible? How much of a problem is Tor? I imagine that you won't have both sender and receiver using it.
The reason for this geolocation is you could implement something along the lines of the FairTax built right into the coin, where every transaction has a small percentage taken by the government?
You could still allow transactions to remain anonymous via some kind of mixing, but the government would get it's cut.
And I know making taxes easy is unpopular and crypto currencies have so much to offer but you know that if we don't find a solution, the government could shut us down. Senator Joe Manchin is already doing what he can in that regard.

Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 308 "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatline]

  • {{ 911: NOTE: I'm going to give up on transcribing videos so carefully with back and forth with Taskforce. She's too low volume to get autotranscriptions and also too difficult to understand in some cases, and both of you talk very quickly so I can't type it up, sorry. I just can't do it. You produce too much time of video. I might just pick out unique entities and list them in these long live videos, since that's what we're after }}
  • Day 175.1 Cohen-Pinchuk Raid Just Gives Up More Clinton Oligarchs - YouTube
    • It's day 175
    • And Daily Caller gets credit for being the first alternative media site to be first out with a real reason for the raid on Trump's lawyer's office Michael Cohen's office
    • And that is to try to dig up dirt on Trump
    • This is the hundred and fifty thousand dollar donation to Trump's charity
    • And of course it ignores the millions of this Ukrainian oligarch's contributions to the Clinton Foundation, which is the same MO that we've seen over and over:
    • Accuse someone else of what you did only make sure that there is at least some shred of evidence {{ Party of Projection }}
    • And this is going to be the key from here on in
    • And thank God Bob Mueller keeps exposing Hillary's Ukrainians and Hillary's Russians
    • And Bob Mueller is actually doing a good job of not only exposing Hillary's Russians and Hillary's oligarchs and Ukrainian oligarchs, but also they're hacking teams, and also [exposing] the MO of using hacking teams to steal money for these oligarchs
    • So this is the gift that keeps on giving with Mueller
    • Now, admittedly he's doing it by accident
    • But in no way do we want to stop Bob Mueller from doing what he's doing
    • Now, there's other folks that said isn't this CrowdStrike really covering their hacking teams?
    • Crowdstrikes hacking teams are called the "Bears"
    • There's different hacking teams usually in teams of 12
    • The Cozy Bears [are] maybe the Awans
    • The Fancy Bears maybe Suschin
    • And there's about six hacking teams at that Trump just threw out of the country is
    • Were they the hacking teams of these millionaires?
    • Is Trump gonna go after all the millionaires and all the millionaires hacking teams?
    • We don't really know that yet
    • But what I did was I put together a quick playlist for all these different entities
    • So that people could get up to speed on who these different entities and aking teams are
    • Or just do a quick refresher
    • So if you don't remember Victor Pinchuk
    • And the Brooklyn Nets etc there's a quick playlist there if you don't remember CrowdStrike and they're role in the DNC
    • And their role really through this the last almost well let's see 20 years either as a corporation or as a loose confederation in cabal inside the FBI, then you have that
    • And then of course Deripaska will add other ones as they come along
    • Friedman certainly will come along
    • Pinchuk will certainly come along etc as well as
    • Now, we also can kind of do threads of playlists through all the different videos we've done with the NGA and different departments
    • And Deep State actors that the that these players that this kind of McCabe Brennan cabal used to destroy people, either through surveillance or what have you
    • And I've created playlists for them
    • Of course there's an Epstein playlist
    • PDD-62 is this idea of using surveillance to crush people
    • So there I created a playlist there
    • EB-5 is the way of getting resources into the country, to man your surveillance etc
    • And then you can go all the way down here to even Uranium One etc
    • To understand how machinations of these criminal actors go
    • And finally I would say there's some ugly attacks yesterday from other YouTube channels as well as other folks that potentially are related to me
    • And all I would say there is did we expect any different?
    • Do we expect that these these conspirators, this Brennan McCabe cabal wouldn't have actors and a voice
    • And actress to act out what they've actually already said in private
    • That they've already said it in in writing to destroy the careers of FBI agents...
    • The ugly attack against Robyn Gritz yesterday was really nothing more than giving voice and action towhat McCabe has already done to Robyn Gritz administratively
    • So it is ugly as it was at least we all saw it for the ugliness that it was
    • And it really was almost a complete recapitulation of Andrew McCabe's actions toward Robyn Gritz
  • Day 175.2 Atlantic Council - What Can Our Crowdstrike Bears Hack For You Today? - YouTube
    • It's day 175
    • And this is part two
    • And a lot of people say Oh George you're trying to be this white knight--rushing to every damsel in distress that needs help
    • Robyn Grit and others--all the female reporters in in Turkey
    • And Syria with Serena Shim, and Shiba Gardi and Vanessa Beeley--Eva Bartlet etc
    • well I'm going to be fair
    • And even-handed today to talk about Irina Chalupa one of the key conspirators she's a woman from the Ukraine, or the key conspirators in the Trump Russia narrative
    • Her sister--if it really is her sister--Alexander Chalupa who is a operative for the DNC
    • She's the one who keeps dropping the Chalupas in Obama's lap
    • Saying oh by the way Mr. president were full flight into and surveillance campaign
    • Do you want us to go public with it and leak it to the press, or do you want to sign off on it?
    • And so your choice is basically a John Brennan embarrasses your administration with yet another leak or you can go ahead and sign this paper here on August 29 2016 Mr. president
    • This has been Brennan and a Clapper and Hayden used these women over and over
    • Again, to do their dirty work they hide behind them
    • They're cowards of course, so they make the women be the brave ones
    • Here's Evelyn Farkas
    • Again, yet another apparatchik among us in the State Department
    • And Department of Defense that wants Trump investigated
    • She was the foremost fixer if you will in Ukraine
    • And these folks all know each other well from the Atlantic Council
    • So here she is Evelyn Farkas she may have remember herself uh outing herself on MSNBC saying hey I'm one of the key conspirators in the Russia-Trump hoax
    • So you keep going here Susan Samantha Power
    • Of course Cass Sunstein sends her in
    • The 260 different on maskings in a breathtakingly short period of time: two months
    • Evelyn Farkas was the one who said let's get as much as we can, dirt as we can, as fast as we can, let's collect it all
    • So rou literally everyone wearing wingtips in Washington got in in New York anybody, associated with Trump, or Trump's babysitter's: were all tapped
    • This is going to be the most embarrassing of that in our country's history
    • It's going to make water well in the words of calls from this is 30 water gates I think it's more
    • But FBI director Kallstrom may it hit it on the head this is 30 watergates
    • But what I like to do is drill down, and say what unites all these folks?
    • Where do they all meet?
    • They all meet in Washington DC over 15 on 15th Street not far off Pennsylvania Avenue at a place called the Atlantic Council
    • And the International Advisory Group to the Atlantic Council is where I always go when I want to get the dirt
    • Here's Viktor Pinchuk here he is making oil deals he was a member of the Ukrainian Parliament
    • But he's a always giving bribes $100,000 bribe $250,000 bribes
    • And it's rinsed through the Atlantic Council
    • Now, Rupert Murdoch's office is oh it's also on that council
    • And also on that Advisory Board
    • His office just got raided
    • Is that why they raided?
    • It is it really CrowdStrike trying to clean up the mess it's a really crowd strike trying to strike the crowd yet again?
    • Here's Ernie Moniz for us to part of energy some people call him earnest money money Tom onna ties
    • I think Eric Shinseki of VA a lot of folks go into the Democratic positions
    • Here of courses Hagel going into deep DoD Greenberg
    • I'm sure that's a person that's related to Mr. Greenberg of are good friends of microloan Fame down in Asia
    • So if you go through here it's just really
    • Here's Edelman the PR firm that kind of destroys different groups with it's sort of a Fusion GPS a domestic Fusion GPS
    • I think the pipelines was the last time they really got involved
    • But basically these groups are adept at destroying opposition political opposition, destroying people, much as Fusion GPS does all over the world
    • And of course here you've got general Clapper on this board
    • Now, you're gonna have a lot of influence George Soros
    • And all the other SEIU Beetles
    • And of course Carl Bildt
    • Here's our Carl Bildt organizing the invasion sort of a MAVNI for Europe sort of bringing in all these operatives these trained Military Intelligence operatives gangs if you will or trained trained Gladio teams into Europe
    • So there's Carl Bildt
    • Everything that you would want on one on one team to put it all together
    • This is the list of people buying pay-to-play overseas from the US State Department
    • And of course it wouldn't be complete without Madeleine Albright
    • And her shadow Secretary of State which is Hillary Clinton
  • Day 175.3. Task Force Sources McCabe Home in Chappaqua Four Months Before MSM - YouTube
    • The orientation is locked
    • So you'll have to see more of me
    • And less of Chicago good morning Chicago
    • So obviously we're downtown
    • And we had some big successes this morning
    • Task Force has a right to claim big success
    • The Thomas Paine article is out
    • (Rahm? Rahm? It looked like Rahm my hip we have the nurse's outfit on again.)
    • (I do have the Bitcoin we're gonna go down to Daley Plaza we're gonna try to get him to Bitcoin I sure hope he's there)
    • So Thomas Paine is out with a big story today about the two decades well actually a three decade relationship between Hillary Clinton and McCabe
    • But this one is--oh by the way look at my look at my t-shirt "spy ring in Congress"
    • This is made by Bernie Bridges
    • And Bernie Bridges told me this morning she's taking all proceeds of anything that she sells and donating it to someone you know and love
    • So anyway hey everybody
    • So if you haven't heard the big news today, the story of that Task Force did and we did
    • But Task Force found it
    • I did a story December 2nd 2017 about Andrew McCabe living right down the street from Hillary Clinton
    • I published photographs
    • I said I don't think Andy actually lived there much
    • I think was the spy house it was the hacking house to defraud HEY
    • Defraud or scare the living bejesus out of different people in New York
    • Threaten them with SEC action in order to take their businesses away from them
    • Or they could use soft power
    • Soft power is getting Hillary Clinton a campaign contribution
    • This is for Senate!
    • This is for Senate
    • 1998
    • The house was in Chappaqua in 1998 you can read Thomas Paine's article about that four months later now
    • Now, it has come to his fact-checking network of FBI folks
    • And X FBI folks there's a network folks
    • Like I said way back when there's a network, and it's real
    • And now, when people see this corruption for what it really is that this has been
    • And again, Thomas Paine said three decades
    • If you go back three decades I still say Andy was the one who went into the evidence cage for the going all the way back 1996
    • I want to say for the Oklahoma City bombing investigation
    • I believe the current ODNI chief is Dan Coates
    • I believe he was the running now
    • The Congressional committees on that they had reprisals against Dan Coates
    • But you're gonna find Andy was a guy who went into the evidence cage
    • I'm gotta say 1997 there was a there was an FBI whistleblower at the time
    • And I can't remember his name
    • But I printed several times when I do if you go to my PDD 62 playlist it's in there I list all the whistleblowers over
    • And over when I list the PDD 62 documentation
    • So if you want to go there you can find it I'm gonna do a lot more playlists because there are there are
    • So many gems like this which just totally blow up the narrative
    • And I'm talking about taking down the whole narrative, with just one fact
    • Hey they've known each other and been neighbors for two decades
    • Jill McCabe as well living right there
    • And Andy didn't disclose it
    • And he did not disclose right James Comey put out you got to get it now, because it is going to get taken down from from Twitter
    • The one ninety know this isn't the one ninety these aren't the one hundred ninety whistleblowers
    • This is the this is Andy McCabe buying a home in Chappaqua just down the street
    • It's got all kinds of cables running out of it
    • I said this this is hacking team hacking team hacking team
    • Was that where the Awans started? We don't know
    • WWas that where Suschin and the fancy bear started?
    • We don't know, but we now know that I told four new viewers they probably don't remember me talking about when I worked at McAfee
    • Or we were taking we were a company taken over by McAfee--Network General I worked there in 1999
    • And there was a hacking team of 12
    • Russians from Moscow
    • They worked in the weapons they worked in cyber weapons in Moscow
    • Now, I've talked about this a lot
    • People have forgotten it
    • But go back I'll have to do I have a CrowdStrike playlist--you can watch kind of going back all the way
    • But I said these guys are they're making viruses! in order to sell antivirus software, at the end of every quarter!
    • It was a criminal activity
    • Bill Larson was a CEO
    • Bill I'm calling you out as a criminal!
    • I reported a channel stuffing at the end of quarter
    • I got nice I got set up real nice for that
    • That's 1999 that was the first team of 12
    • Now, I don't know if there was teams of 12 before that or teams of 12 after that well there obviously was a lot of teams of 12 after that
    • Trump just kicked six teams of 12 out
    • But getting back to the McCabe we don't know if the hacking team was there I don't think it was a nice enough house to be honest with you--you got to talk really loud though because that the bus is that I know I mean Chappaqua is a very small community
    • And I know it's in a community of like 1,400
    • And it's something like you have to look at true pundit's article this ago 1,400 kind of elite community a mile from Hillary Clinton's house her house is probably very nice I'm assuming
    • So I don't know I know he's sold or resold
    • And refinancet it also in 2013 I have those documents and
    • So there I don't know the condition of that house or its value
    • I know what he sold and resold it for
    • I don't know what that money from 1998 to 2013 what happened during that time
    • G: the timing to me makes sense to having a hacking team house like at Awan type house for the run-up to Senate
    • And of course going up against Joe John F Kennedy John F Kennedy jr. right that's why she they move to chat they John house in Chappaqua to specifically establish residency what you have to have to run for Senate
    • She was the first lady John F Kennedy jr. was running as that New York Senator
    • And they bought a house in Chappaqua to run against him
    • And prevent him from winning that seat
    • And then that's when his plane somehow fell from the sky
    • G: right right
    • And the reason why he sold it in 2011 to a Burgess to its 2013 to purchase to a Burgess removed from the database well it's that's alright it's it's still out there the story is still out there Peter purchase
    • But it mister NBC CBS or whatever
    • And he's--NOC buddies right I don't want to say any did the we had anything to do with--JFK jr. by the way I don't want to say that I just said few Task Force just talking about timing
    • But what we do know is
    • And I'm sorry about the portrait here I wanted the landscape
    • So you can see Chicago not well I guess you get to see spy ring in Congress
    • But the patterns the patterns the modus operandi is what's important here the hacking teams of 12 the safe houses
    • The thousands of wires running out
    • The removable hard drives the thumb drives
    • All this stuff was was worked out in the Senate campaign way before they ever got to Washington
    • Then they sell the house after Hillary's in the Senate twice for the run up for the presidency
    • She doesn't want to run for Senate
    • Again, she wants to be president
    • So they sell the house in 2013 to Burgess
    • And cash out--and some NOC fund, some CIA NOC fund caches Burgess out
    • And then they come to Washington
    • So it that's a big story today
    • And that's a huge story
    • And we got to do more playlists that pick up a lot more of Jenny's stuff a lot more Taskforce stuff--the problem is is I got used to introducing you by your fake name to different people and
    • Now, I got
    • Now, I've got the bug
    • Now, I got the other fake name
    • So there you go
    • So anyway there's lots of stuff
    • So we're gonna have to go through
    • And we did the Deripaska I did the Deripaska that's the derringer coming out of the pasta
    • We all these guys all these guys go back to Prokhorov
    • Pinchuk
    • Deripaska
    • The original 12 Andy Andy comrades running Kompromat all go together
    • So Prokhorov was the guy who was going to launder the money through the sports teams
    • Pinchuk was the more the oil energy kind of guy
    • They did minerals through Deripaska through ???
    • They had they had a funnel for all the drug for weapons business they had
    • And their selling of the secrets they had funnels for all the different ones all the different Russians represented different money laundering funnels
    • Do you want to add to that?
    • TF: I just want to give a shout-out to Thomas Paine
    • And True Pundit because it's amazing article people should try to find in read
    • And we will read retweeted out he's just that Thomas Paine
    • And true
    • But it is great great investigative work
    • And people really need to follow that
    • So yeah that is a good shot
    • And he did say something about the attorneys
    • I mean the Inspector General living in that neighborhood
    • And I didn't think Horowitz lived in that neighborhood
    • The Inspector General has ER Doc's so
    • Now, how does the Inspector General leave this out Comey sent out a blanket email to all the FBI saying there's no conflict of interest here in McCabes
    • And know how to Clinton's right no conflict of interest oh well I forgot to mention my kid mows their yard
    • And we're we're close enough to--borrow cups of sugar from each other, you what I'm talking about sugar--
    • And Jill McCabe's a doctor there I don't know she brings sugar to the party
    • I'm not saying she seems like a very nice woman
    • She seems like a very nice woman caught in a horrible horrible thing
    • And Hillary it's always the same thing
    • Hillary always takes it to the next level there are no limits for Hillary
    • McCain stopped at dirty weapons
    • Comey stopped at dirty weapons
    • Hillary does not stop at anything to win she does not stop at anything
    • So we're gonna go down we're gonna try to get Rahm
    • And we'll talk about the network of people she built in the United States with the help of Andy to sell to get this Bitcoin
    • We'll talk about that in a little bit--that's gonna come out
    • But for right now, we got to get Rahm his Bitcoin we'll see you a little bit
  • Day 175.4. Rahm-Com - YouTube
    • Orientation is locked again, oh well
    • well here we are sorry about the portrait orientation
    • We've got the Picasso oh there you can obviously see that they made modifications to the back part of it
    • They've spring-loaded all the wiring
    • And they've made the law advance started up here now,
    • And I'm here with Task Force the band everyone asked what the heck did he get all that Bitcoin?
    • Well if you kind of line all this stuff up
    • 1998 late 98 when the house is bought, when Andy McKay buys the Chappaqua house right right
    • And I'll try to get more of Rahm in here and less of a spy ring in Congress is when all this stuff happens
    • You have a hacking team that goes into Chappaqua to extort money which we will be coming out and talking about
    • But it's the group out in the Long Island house for the SEC
    • I was in New York for a couple of years
    • And we had I had a building I was in a building where the SEC enforcement division was just out of coincidence
    • And there so we had a hacking team of 12 up there
    • Then we had a happy team go into Congress right about the same time right
    • we had Rahm Emanuel go into Congress in 1999
    • We had Anthony Weiner going to Congress in 1999
    • And it kind of became the foundation of this let's just call it the "Bitcoin kids"
    • The Bitcoin kids
    • This is before Bitcoin
    • But I'm just saying a lot of times when you get money from illegal operations beyond the dark weapons beyond even things that have the color-of-law, you need to hide it in into things like Bitcoin
    • So I'm gonna just set the stage here for for why things happen the way they did
    • Hillary moves to the Senate in 2002
    • TF: right well after Bill and Hillary leaving the White House
    • Number one Rahm Emanuel was part of Bill Clinton's White House
    • So people need to remember that way back
    • As was Podesta--they were both inside the White House very close very close and
    • So Hillary then decides to she's going to run for Senator, simultaneously as she's leaving as first lady
    • So she needs to establish residency in order to represent, you have to establish residency
    • So they buy the house in Chappaqua we're in the same year were ending McCabe is first located in Chappaqua at a house down the road
    • JFK jr. was running in that Senate position
    • And that New York's in a position Hillary decides to buy house now, and she would have to explain the reasons why she chose there
    • But she chose there to run in that district to run against JFK jr.
    • We all know what happened I don't know I'm not getting into all that
    • But we all know what happened to JFK jr.
    • And in that election, when JFK jr. unfortunately passed away, Hillary Clinton won that Senate seat
    • And became on the Senate Armed Services right out of the White House
    • Now, do you think the Chappaqua house could have been a reminder of like Chappaquiddick, because they do sound so similar
    • Like, remember what happened your brother at Chappaquiddick?
    • John-John, right you might want to sit this one out?
    • I mean maybe there's a little bit of a--a little bit of a WINK threat there shuttle going on subtlety's?
    • Well we do know that we did a story about this December 2nd 2017
    • And there was a fire at the Chappaqua house, right?
    • About a day or two later
    • I remember at the Hillary's chef Hillary's Chappaqua house
    • We did the story of December 2nd and that which is breaking big now
    • And there was a fire right at her house right maybe a day later yeah maybe a day later
    • So you could check the records for when there was a fire at the Chappaqua house
    • Now, it just so happens I when I went to Chappaqua with a thumb drive, this is gonna start getting more relevant
    • I hope we weren't on camera that whole time?
  • Day 175.5. Chicago RiverWalk Live With Task Force - YouTube
    • {{ RAW transcript only with autoreplacements }}
    • You're not familiar with Chicago you've kind of got the bridges in a little bit higher level
    • And then just on the other side of this wall here is where Bernie Bridges works with all of our homeless quite a bit of homeless just right here on the other side Bernie Bridges is out on her bridge on the Kennedy today talking about working with the spy ring in Congress

    • So here we are with Task Force I know it's gonna be a little bit windy down here by the river
    • But it's worth it if you're over here Task Force I think we're good
    • And then you can speak right into the microphone here
    • So let's just go through a couple of the well first of all congratulations on your success today today I know how it feels to be well I don't be humble I know how it feels to be in the middle of a story
    • And then when this story goes big this happen with me with a hard drives I think you're having your hard drives moment--where you go for 200 days people don't believe you don't believe you from for you as a little bit shorter is about four months
    • But then vindication came today when people did discover that Andy did have a house of Chapel right yeah I think--just doing putting all the research in there's a lot of documents
    • And stuff that you're trying to weed out
    • And figure out what's most important
    • And you stumble upon something like that
    • And you tried it I be I've tweeted it I sent it I to about a thousand different people how many people I sent it directly into people inside Washington people don't believe it could be possible
    • And then when it breaks something big it's like just it works--in the ends the research pays off
    • And the most important part is the truth that's what we're all about
    • So
    • And she's very humble about it
    • And doesn't want it wants the credit Thomas Paine really for verification because it's really those FBI agents that have retired that want the best for the FBI that really do kind of make the story because they verify it they sure that the truth is going out there
    • And it kind of as that final fact check not not from just--regular people who--who are suppressed kids who want to get to the next self-congratulatory oh by the way we're right under Trump Tower here not just those kids
    • But real real Intelligence service professionals who can say yes this is exactly what happened
    • And this is I mean they're trying to bury it already right they're trying to bury the story already things like that you know
    • Again, I just I give a shout out to Thomas paper being up there
    • But also to Robyn Gritz
    • And him
    • Again, I'm gonna mention her name she's the one that stood has stood up against the ending McCabe we have a spokesman out there I hate spokesman yeah seems like fund me
    • And support her
    • And in her battle as she she's taking on the system Thomas Paine's another guy that's been a part of that
    • And I wanted to say about Robin I mean she's not gonna be like oh I'm gonna go away she's gonna be a part of the solution--she's gonna
    • And I don't want to say too much more on that
    • So let's go to the bombing most people don't know we are have a raging bombing campaign right
    • Now, they think there's Trump sitting on his hands right well there were Navy Navy fighter jets whatever sins
    • And they bombed a bunch of what was originally called Taliban synthetic labs which is basically where you're--taking the opiates
    • And processing them in those areas
    • And then it's kind of come out more honest is this Western Afghanistan or Eastern
    • I'm not exact locations
    • But it's coming out--more
    • And more really running those labs
    • And where is that stuff coming from it it's Catholics in action right the damn Catholics
    • Again, are running these drug labs in Pakistan would create a lab wait I think it's the I think it's the cars International League right cars Internet Inc has got I did not realize they had the resources to create labs--that's quite amazing so
    • Now, do you think Trump will just keep the bombing campaign going while he's kind of keeping the world in suspense that's about what he's gonna do on the other yeah I don't I don't know I think that was--trunks one of his main things was opiate the opiate--the problem in here in this country
    • And this is a big big big part of the story that people don't understand of how the opiates where they're coming from how its being synthesized in different labs
    • And where that's occurring
    • And why he's moms might be dropping on the labs to stop the opiates from coming in
    • And killing American people
    • And that's been
    • And that's been really covered up I mean we really haven't had a lot of coverage on that to be honest you really have to dig there are some like Navy Times
    • And people I mean it's hard to send kids--up in in to war
    • And the moms are all like I don't know
    • And them grandmothers
    • And the dads
    • And the brothers
    • And everything it's hard not to be honest--this gonna show up there's a lot of satellites up there you're gonna see the bombing and
    • So anyway I'm just seeing that comments for the first time they're close enough
    • So yeah well we'll try to get the comments as we go
    • So a couple other stories what do you want to cover a couple of other stories that seem to come to mind the only other thing I would say is that we didn't we try to cover earlier we got to we didn't get a chance to win load about the soldier we were out in daily square
    • And yeah
    • And a soldier who has served his country in Afghanistan just to hear on a patriot who has followed George from the first days came up
    • And said hey scrunchie recognized George
    • And we got a chance to shake his hand or he knew you to though you knew Task Force yeah I knew
    • So yeah
    • So it was a great chance to meet him
    • And he asked him what we could do better what would be most helpful
    • And he said you need to have a Chicago whistle doe whistle blower Sunday like you do in DC because they're supporters they want to talk so
    • Now, I am just quite shocked that we have not had a ROM siren or ambulance a lot of people are calling it the Romulans we have not had a Romulans since we've been down here
    • Now, roms got to get out of the city at some point doesn't he I mean he's you think it'll be my fire truck--with that booster seat or do you think it'll be a rambling
    • So Romulus probably gonna be lots of diversions right you might have a Romulus going one way with a fire truck
    • And a booster seat going another way and--all different diversions
    • So no one can really follow that yeah rom worked pretty close to state
    • And lake
    • So if you want to try to get the Bitcoin we survive we're still are
    • Now, we
    • Now, we hear Mark Zuckerberg may be delivering a lot of Bitcoin
    • But in hand delivering a lot of Bitcoin in Congress today what is your take on you watch a little bit of the testimony what should I watch the testimony mostly yesterday that on the senate
    • And my take was first of all that when they did it's the statistics of how many of the people questioning mark zuckerberg had actually taken cash for more exact reverse our Facebook's company it's a little hard to question
    • And fire off appropriate questions
    • And you can look at Thomas Paine's article on that
    • And fire off tough questions about what's happening with data in the selling off of data when you're actually taking money from the company yeah I think it was like 30 or 40 Senators had taken
    • And almost all that sherry had taken money from him
    • And a like big chunk some money like half a million dollar chunks right before he goes on to the Senate testimony as like they're not even separating pay-to-play with the conjunction to just pay play pay play--it's almost like one word
    • Now, in Washington
    • But I'm kind of glad I'm out of Washington to be honest with you yeah it's actually wonderful to be out here with the people that this is these are the great people great American patriots whether they're veterans or bernie bridges or just--people that are trying to do what's right by our country
    • And get it back to the rule of law
    • And ethics
    • And morality at all
    • Now, now the big news is we knocked out we knocked Paul Ryan of the he's retiring I think he knows the Racine story's coming we're still gonna do the Racine story Paul because we get it's not it's bigger than you
    • But Paul nellen
    • Now, becomes the front-runner in that race s
    • So I think our time in Milwaukee was well spent what are your thoughts on on Paul Ryan yeah well I think it's a little it's probably shocking everyone that he's deciding to resign not shocking to me
    • So are you ready to drop your connections between Paul Ryan
    • And Andy McCabe yet or no no I think we're gonna go to Racine
    • And we're gonna do some investigating there information that we have that may be the ghost signal to start sending right ramya lenses in all directions that may be your go signal go ahead I'm sorry
    • So yeah I just think we're--we're gonna go to spend some time in Racine
    • And tell some stories that need to be cooked cold or gay at least get some information out there that people can start doing some research because racing is a big important part of what's going on in our country well just like Hull House are my objective isn't to make any judgments it's just to go to the places--film around it show the metadata
    • And then people come up with all kinds of stuff
    • Now, your whole house is gonna be moved oh oh
    • we don't know that for sure
    • So all right well we're gonna leave that
    • So what other news you want to cover there's probably a couple more Senators a couple more Congressmen then I won't be running for reelection seems like a lot of people just serve at the Blues
    • But--not wanting to run for reelection
    • And I'm gonna it's going to be very curious to find out their reasoning which I think will come out at a later date
    • And time about why they chose or whereas yeah
    • So I'm gonna take questions here for a second as our as our ACOG oh cab goes by our Chicago water taxi--I want to see a little bit about--Bobby Rush Bobby Rush was commenting with Mark Zuckerberg
    • And we've been in a couple of different Senate meetings where people will mention COINTELPRO
    • And they'll say Oh COINTELPRO
    • And then
    • And we don't run that anymore
    • And we always have a chuckle on that one that's what Hillary restarted with Andy McCabe in 1998 you're gonna find that this whole process that we've been talking about McCabe maybe not rahm emanuel because he comes in a little bit later
    • But the whole thing with p tech
    • And the whole thing with mueller was to cycle up Sibel Edmonds is reporting a lot on this I don't know why anybody else doesn't
    • But to cycle up
    • And restart COINTELPRO much much more surveillance much more surveillance from the sky that's our NGA that's why we talk
    • So much about the NGA that's why the Larry Clayman suit for me that's why we created a playlist for an GA because it's not only about the metadata of you walking of you making a phone call while you're walking up
    • And down Riverwalk
    • But it's actually geo-locating you here
    • And then being able to go back with a d-wave type computer a quantum type computer
    • And actually replay your life replay your life see where you error every minute of the day
    • Now, I believe in the criminal justice information system
    • And that's in Clarksburg Tennessee that's run by a guy named Burrell who was in the Washington field office the counter-intel office with all of his friends like Shawn Henry
    • And Adrian Hawkins
    • And of course Andy McCabe
    • And Bill Priestap here in Chicago they actually have a d-wave
    • And they can reconstruct any put person walking along here
    • And their time
    • So all murders could be solved today they just don't want to let on that they have this time capability Burrell's company is called temporal data systems
    • So that's that's what it's all about
    • So anyway I'm gonna take a few questions here as we go
    • And if you can think of any other news items what am I aware of do all caps what am I aware of somebody has said is somebody's history temporal data systems yes that's Burrell's company we have a spokesman for a McCabe that we normally see at this point along the way who's using every possible Federal agency to point out the fact that I was correct with the diplomatic cover the diplomatic containers shipping their Uranium games Uranium One as well as other games [Music] Silva's
    • So I think that maybe eat it we I normally can expound a little bit more
