Trump Is The Swamp, So He Won't Drain Himself (Part 1)

For those of you thinking Donald Trump plays 4-D chess and is always a step ahead of everyone, allow me to paint a different picture of a draft doger obsessed by the military , who would have squandered the millions his daddy left him if not for for his powerful connections. Connections who are at war with other powerful people. Neocons and neoliberals, high up Dems and GOP are two sides of the same coin on issues of monetary and foreign policy, I don't  mean them, but rather deep state apparatus seeking to enforce US hegemony and the old money banking dynasties seeking to cast aside the USD and introduce the IMFs SDR. But that comes much later. First the backstory.

In The 1950's CIA director Allan Dulles along with David Rockerfeller established a front company for laundering CIA and Mossad black ops money. Benignly named the Mary Carter Paint Company. Due to the amounts of money involved and so as not to blow their cover, they changed their name to Resorts International in …

A More Interesting And Unconventional Look At Light

The boring and done before "duality of light" routine raises more queaquest than it answers. Quantum theory is watertight mathematically but what if it's probabilistic take on reality is nothing more than an accurate model. Is light a photon? Is it an elsctromagnetic wave? Of what kind?

Finally I have found a short video that deals with these questions in a way that appears to be in touch with reality and retains the spirit of invention and curiosity that has left certain sectors of the physics community.

The Best Cryptocurrencies

Time to get real. If your blockchain:
* Has a CEO
* Contains pre-mined tokens
* Distributed tokens via an ICO
* Can execute a forced hardfork
* Doesn't use a consensus algorithm
* Can be changed in a short time.

...then it's most likely centralized.

It is more of the coins than you think. Take for example Ethereum:
* Executed a forced hardfork
* Has a central point, Vitalik
* 20℅ of the coins were pre-mined

It follows logically that Ethereum is centralized.

Here are the "gold standard" decentralized blockchains:
* BITCOIN
* LITECOIN
* MONERO


I'm a hardcore ideologist more than an investor, but the upside of having a blockchain that leaves central banks utterly incapable of taking control of your blockchain is that they are probably the most fundamentally economically viable too. That being said I still think Ethereum, Dash, Ripple and Cardano plus a handful of others are great coins, but for different and interesting reasons.

7 Crypto-Friendly Countries

Regardless of the underlying specifics of cryptocurrency technology, whether it's BitcoinEthereumRippleCardano or EOSfor example, all digital currencies are essentially borderless. They can be mined just about anywhere and generally, traded globally. Still, not every location is as friendly to the burgeoning asset class as others.

The Genie Is Out Of The Bottle.

There is one company, headquartered in Newark, New Jersey, that has some sort of connection to every CIA operation, regime change, war, terrorist organization and government involved with the Middle East. It's board can boast about careers covering issues as wide ranging as opium trade Black Ops funding to celebrity gossip. It is the embodiment of everything that is wrong with foreign policy, media and banksterism in the world today. In fact if you follow this link to their site you see that I mean that LITERALLY because sitting on their board are Dick Cheney, Rupert Murdoch and Lord Jacob Rothschild.

Whats The Deal With Russia And Turkey?

There is a lot of speculation on this topic in the media, on social media and in the MSM, but everyone interprets the current situation differently (it is not as clear as most geopolitical situations based on reading the lay of the land because much is going on behind the scenes). With a little historical perspective many things come into focus. This article from Eurasian Future, by Adam Garrie frames the situation in a way that, for me, is the most plausible.


Putin Isn’t Bringing Back the USSR and Erdogan Isn’t Bringing Back the Ottoman Empire – Both Are Embracing Genuine Multipolarity with Historically Apt Characteristics "When hypernationalists in Russia or Turkey claim that the two countries are destined for conflict, such voices are merely playing into the hands of those in Europe and the United States who seek to divide and rule Eurasia by exploiting conflicts between the Russia, Turkey and also Iran."
