The European Union has officially moved to ban anonymous crypto wallets in order to protect us from cyber crime and themselves from capital flight. Theirs is a move born of ideology and futility and the clearest signal yet they are preparing for the inevitable next big crash to usher in their new Monetary Order.
It will end badly for them because the U.S. and Wall St. are hip to their game.

And yet the talk across the developed world’s mainstream financial media grows ever warmer about stablecoins if only they were regulated, while CBDCs continue to be the pretence for bureaucrats who couldn’t develop and maintain a cryptocurrency if their lives depended on it.
Their false flag cyberattack is imminent, and in the chaos their pet Zuckerberg will gift them Diem to power their UBI programs, and the ban on private crypto will follow immediately.
I’m curious as to how many Diems we’ll each get each month, and what the daily negative interest rate will be. I say about -3% – at that rate if you don’t spend the cybercopter money it’s all evaporated by the time you get your next airdrop.
Of course qualifying for the Diems might involve clearing some hurdles.
Probably a vaccine and the accompanying certification.
Its curious though to consider how the Davosians would pull off a cyberattack of sufficient magnitude without the public demanding to know who was responsible. It’s one thing, for example, to ransom a single oil pipeline that creates relatively minor and temporary shortages and then blame it on some mysterious hacker group that miiiiiight be somehow connected with (of course who else?) RUSSIARUSSIARUSSIA.
It’s quite another thing however to create a 8.0 magnitude cyber quake and then mumble into your hand at the presser that,”We believe at this time that…er…well…#%#^@^× hacking organization with possible ties to er um maybe a location in lower Voldmortistan is responsible— no questions being taken, thank you.” No, people must have blame attributed and the greater the harm the more certain it must be. And the more pressure there will be for punishment/retribution.
Who will be the scapegoat for such a crime? Russia? Don’t think old Vlad is going to go along with that plan. The Davois aren’t going to blame the CCP either. Uh oh. Running out of bad guys to blame. Iran? Nope. The Iranians are EU mistresses with a lethal temper. Maybe blame the US but with the current Puppet in dc it’s too laughable.
I agree the collectivists on both sides of the Atlantic want a great Crisis for their own reasons and uses but finding a crisis big enough to do the job that can be blamed on someone credibly without starting a thermonuclear war…not so easy.
Yes I agree – I think that they’ll use this false flag like they have COVID, as the threat of liability to menace those that seem reluctant to come to the table.
So the “lab origin” story was initially laughed off, then taken seriously, and is now fading from view. I wouldn’t be surprised if that mirrored the Chinese negotiations (i.e they were initially receptive to globalist overtures, then quibbled, and have now reached agreement) – this cyberattack may be used to bring Russia to the table (“you’ll get the blame, and you’ll be a global pariah, or you can be a powerful voice at the table – your choice”) but I think that when looking for the patsy on this one we need to use the poker analogy.
Namely, if you can’t see the patsy, it’s you.
They will blame “domestic extremists”, which will soon mean anyone who reads this site, anyone not vaccinated, anyone resisting their vaccine passports and social credit systems, anyone who owns gold, goats, guns or private crypto (once they ban it), libertarians, conservatives, Christians,and rednecks.
Tom believes this is to give the globalist clowns way too much credit.
But look what they have achieved with a nasty flu season and a few pet journalists. I wonder what they will achieve in the aftermath of a global cyberattack that they blame on “the far-right”?
Some kind of Great Reset would be my guess.
Time to put a fork in yet another Western European entity. The Japan olympics are riddled with problems, most of the Olympic committee creation.
Olympics have been financial disasters for decades, but this one is already worse than normal. Already a year late because of hypochondriacs. no other weak “pandemic” has caused massive lockdowns, indeed lockdowns were and are viewed as counter productive. now that people are being coerced and forced to take an experimental drug (it does not grant immunity like a vaccine would), we are seeing left leaning media outlets report dozens of “breakthrough cases” where fully immunized persons get the virus anyway. For the umpteenth time, fauci moves the goalposts. It’s a disaster of official creation.
The same people who chant “my body, my choice” on abortion also chant “state owned person, not your choice” on experimental drugs. Many pro-lifers want a choice on experimental drugs.
Many top corporate sponsors of the Japanese games have pulled out, and pulled commercials from tv coverage. They are distancing themselves from a disaster.
The USA women’s soccer (everyone else calls it football) team was defeated 3-0 in qualifying by Sweden which will kill interest in the biggest tv market…. Japan is 13 hours different time zone than NYC, so ratings should resemble the Seoul South Korea debacle even if women’s football wasn’t already blasted.
Fans won’t be allowed to watch events in person… which might spare tv ratings somewhat.
Several athletes have tested positive for covid, even after two shots with the experimental drug, even with draconian isolation practices.
England just had their “freedom day” punctuated with new lockdown edicts, including nightclubs and pubs requiring covid passports — the stuff the public already rejected months ago. Pubs are warning this would finish off their business, so they are publicly saying they won’t comply. If police show up at pubs, they will further decimate the tv audience for the covid olympics.
The olympics are already a debacle, and opening chaos ceremony is still two days off
Women’s soccer is not a big loss.
Robert, the only thing keeping the olympics afloat is NBC paying for tv rights. Anything that knocks tv ratings down is going to hurt NBC ability to subsidize the failure.
Ratings for the opening ceremony were a disaster; far worse than Seoul (which also had a 13 hour time difference to the US tv audience).
Of course, the athletes trying to shove politics down everyone’s throats doesn’t help either. Remember when the olympics used to be about sport?
TV rights, and especially US tv rights, are the only thing keeping the olympics going (for now). Without NBC subsidizing the constant losses, the olympics would be a fraction of what they are now (and they might just fold up)
Anything that damages those ratings in US tv markets is bad for the price of US tv rights, and thus bad for the olympics.
Women’s soccer, for better or worse, has been a huge ratings draw in the US tv market.
Alleged athletes who focus everything on woke politics, and neglect their sport, are also bad for ratings. Thousands of people try out to go to the olympics, so if an athlete doesn’t want to be there, take the next person in line. Not everything is about politics.
Without a popular sport, but too much politics, ratings are going to collapse, and the value of tv rights will collapse too.
Check out the ratings for the opening ceremonies… absolute disaster. No fans in the stadium, but politicians and the emperor were there? WTF is that?
It boggles your mind that the Davos Crowd think that Wall St will let “a mouldy bunch of European commies” take away their personal golden geese?
You don’t see that your framing of the issue is what’s blinding you to the answer – you’re thinking that because the globalists at the WEF happen to be German and French, and the guys on Wall St are based in America, that there is some sense of national competition here?
There isn’t – NONE of these people care about nations and borders – they are globalists. They care about money and power. The provincial obsession with nationality you’re stuck on is arguably their best defence.
Hasn’t their disdain for nationalism, populism and borders shown you that? If George Soros gifts ANOTHER $18bn into an organisation dedicated to destroying all national sovereignty, will you see it then?
They are globalists Tom – you have to stop thinking of them as Germans and Frenchmen. Because I assure you they stopped thinking that way decades ago.
And they are not going to take away any golden geese – they are on the brink of plundering the whole world. If anything, they are enlisting the help of the current crop of national and business leaders to bring about their plan for world domination, and have no doubt promised a share of those spoils to anyone that helps them (and concrete boots to anyone that stands in their way).
What do you think they have been talking about at Davos all these years?!
I fear the comprehensive nature of your insight into the old paradigm is preventing you from seeing this new one. As on the playing fields of Rugby when a frustrated young man picked up the ball and ran with it, you stand as dumbfounded by the new paradigm as his more skilful soccer-playing teammates were.
I don’t agree with your premse and I think you’ve gone too far down the road of them being globalists and not who they are at their core and what their imprinting truly is.
And I think that reduces your analysis too much to the actual reality… because like it or not, genetics and cultural imprinting matter, even if a person refuses to admit it.
Every time someone tells me ignore the person, what shaped them and what their defects are and I run that analysis, that analysis turns out to be wrong.
I used to be you, Ivor. That’s why you are so triggered by my analysis and write soooo much to prove me wrong. You are lost in an overly reductionist view of the problem.
There is nothing, not one thing, new in human behavior. Schwab et.al. think they are breaking the cycle when all they are doing is confirming it.
Well, it’s possible. I hope so.
But of course I think that I used to be you.
Back before the globalists proved they could shut down the global economy and give half the world PTSD with nothing more than a weak pathogen and a few pet journalists.
I look forward to being proved wrong in the next 40 days.
Have you noticed that the scope and scale of their cyberattack dry runs are growing?
Cyber Polygon gave them the confidence they need to pull the plug.
Yes I have. And I’ve also noticed that they have failed to generate any real consensus on the issue or that it truly has anyone worried. It’s a silly game they are playing. And the only effect it may or light have is in Allowing the EU /ECB to touch off a crisis so they can consolidate power in Europe.
Everyone else will laugh at them. Ivor, they have you gaslit
Well, at least we are agreed on the nature of their attempt.
As I said previously, I am hoping for the best and planning for the worst.
Whereas you appear to be hoping for the best and planning for it too.
I hope you’re hedged.
Im completely hedged. And have consistently preached to be spread across all of these asset classes.
Ivordeacon you are viewing Globalism as a homogenic united group, they are anything but. Globalism is a euphemism for power and money. When it comes to cutting the pie, the knives really come out. We’re at that point I believe, where they are getting ready to divvy up the pie. Problem is everyone wants a slice and will do what they need to get a larger piece. If any faction sees itself being cut out or getting a smaller slice they will fight back, it’s their nature. At the end of the day all people have a Tribal instinct, it’s innate. It can be overcome for a while, but people always return to it.
United certainly, but not homogenic.
They are united in a Common Purpose – a Malthusian plan to implement global technocommunism, allowing them to “make the hard decisions” that need making in order for humanity to “realise its potential”
They have little in common beyond that – their race, nationalities, genders, languages, sexuality are across a very broad range.
Although you’ll notice that their educational background is very narrow, and few have children.
Some of them believe this Ivor. Not all of them.
You mentioned you would like to have a guest on soon. I for one would love to hear you discuss your analysis of the U.S./EU schism with Lynette Zang.
Brandon Smith of alt-market.us would be good. Considerable common ground but also some areas to explore.
I don’t agree. They have little in common as you point out so therefore, by that logic can’t be united in action. They may agree in broad strokes of theory, but action is different. Malthusian’s are about self preservation ( it may not be stated or even implied but that is end result, otherwise they would be the first Lemming off the cliff ), because they believe in their superiority and that is their downfall. ego. There is no room or call to determine who is and isn’t worth keeping. Do we just do a Logan’s Run style system ? The natural innate drive is for self preservation, and reproduction. It can’t and won’t be overcome.
I will point out that these people will not be standing once the chaos ensues. It’s not them that win in the end. It’s the people like Stalin, Mao, Tito, Po Pot, Hitler, Franco, Mussolini, it the hard men with nothing to lose and no sense of guilt and the willingness to use brute force all the time.
I’m forecasting a controlled demolition of the world economy – a short sharp period of chaos designed to manufacture consent for the Great Reset.
Indeed to get us to beg for it.
So this won’t be Mad Max or Logan’s Run. It’s just an engineered global crisis (triggered with a cyberattack) requiring the implementation of global governance, social credit and UBI, and sewing privacy, liberty, cash and private crypto into their shrouds.
And all current geopolitics is about who gets the best seats at that global governance table.
The chaos might only last 90 days. But it’s starting soon.
In your opinion what could happen if Biden fires the current Fed chairman and replace him with a more Davos like type of guy to get the US to fall in line…
That person will put things to “right”. Open the floodgates and let the Dems go nuts destroying the dollar. Powell is keeping the markets on their toes. He won’t pull a Volcker, but he can and will try and bust Lagarde and the ECB. If this talk intensifies he’ll make a move at Jackson Hole that will attack the EU root and branch
Tom, did you see the photos from Biden / CNN’s “town hall meeting”?
The sitting president of the United States, supposedly elected in a high participation election less than a year ago. A supposedly popular, formerly news, network…. They barely filled 8 rows at the front of a small auditorium. Let’s assume, without any basis, that this tiny audience was actual citizenry, and not Biden’s entourage or CNN staffers.
This octogenarian could not fill the common room at a convalescent center. If (as is likely) some of the audience was Biden or CNN staffers, it’s even worse. this is the absurdly compliant media showing us these photos from the back of a mostly empty auditorium.
Even with everything stacked in his favor, Biden spent much of the staged show fumbling his lines and having a disturbing number of, ahem, senior moments.
This guy hid in his basement the entire campaign season. He did not get buy-in from the electorate for anything, much less his socialist economic conversion.
He is trying desperately to use a very weak pandemic (or a bad flu season) to implement all sorts of unpopular tyranny. Lockdowns are counterproductive, even in a real pandemic. For a disease with a 99.8% survival rate, it’s asinine. Small business, even Democrat voter owned small business, cannot afford for the two week lockdown to extend more than 15 months.
We are seeing serious protests in France, with the French military talking about removing macron by force. We are seeing serious protests in England, with pub owners saying they will not comply with “freedom day” lockdowns. What are authorities going to do, shut down the business? How is that any different outcome from further lockdowns?
Given Biden couldn’t get an audience even with CNN stuffing the auditorium, macron might be forcibly removed from office, and even brexiteer Johnson is on shaky ground…. How are the davos dummies going to have any lasting effect?
I see davos causing a lot of unnecessary suffering over the next year, spiked by humiliating defeats in elections in Germany and France and later the USA. Japan’s government may fall after the Olympics. And Biden, if he doesn’t fall down the stairs and break his own neck, will face a dominant opposition Congress. Harris couldn’t get herself elected in the democratic primary, she won’t be able to govern. The spending spree Schumer, pelosi and Dementia One are pushing is so irresponsible their own party won’t back it. CRT and defund the police are failing among Democrat voters. And Biden’s honeymoon is over. He couldn’t fill a CNN auditorium much less the common room of a convalescent home.
Davos is a cornered animal, so very dangerous but ultimately doomed. Can’t say anyone will miss the pompous bastards.
I agree with your final assessement… Davos is a cornered animal which looks incredibly dangerous while it lashes out before being destroyed.
And this is exactly the outcome I’ve been worried about for a long time now.
Thanks for the observation.
Tom, the compliant media photos of a mostly empty auditorium speak for themselves. You cannot dispute that a man who won election 9 months ago was unable to fill 8 rows (and some of that was staffers).
You have nothing but Fauci’s word that covid isn’t just a really bad flu season. 99.9999% of the population does not have the lab experience to identify a virus. The death toll is on par with a bad flu season. Using the CDC data, the economic damage from the cure is 100000x that of the virus. Other health issues (believe it or not, there are other diseases!) have been neglected, which will lead to other deaths. Among younger people, “excess suicide” already is at least double covid deaths.
I’m obviously not disputing that there is such a virus as covid. I’m just saying that from the CDC data we wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between this and a bad flu season.
Do you know that 9/11 killed 3000 Americans and did about $4 billion in economic damage? Do you the war in Afghanistan cost 2500 American deaths, many thousands injured for life, and at least a trillion dollars?
I had friends in the north tower on 9/11, it was horrible. But the dim-witted response did more harm than the actual attack.
The dim-witted lockdown is doing more harm than the virus.
Anyway, at least we agree that davos is a cornered animal. Dangerous short term, but ultimately they are a distraction from what actually matters
James. We agree on everything you just said. The response to COVID and 9/11 are perfect examples of how the State destroys capital and does not protect it. It’s truly horrific, as you say.
Again. Thank you for the thoughtful and apropos comments. Healthy disagreements on some issues only leads to uncovering areas of agreement in others.
Biden and Harris are meaningless cyphers – the assigned embalmers for America.
They have done the absolute minimum required – Biden hides in his basement and doesn’t do press conferences. Harris never goes anywhere or does anything. Both only give softball interviews about their favourite confectionery to mockingbird media.
Biden is GCS<10.
Once the globalists get their way, the US seat at the global governance table is almost certainly going to be filled by Obama.
I’d say zero citizens were there, because you could assassinate Biden with a punch.
In the middle of Lyn Alden’s “Why Gold & BTC are popular”. It’s a lengthy read but well worth the time, at least for those newer to being positive towards cryptos like myself. She states that since El Salvador’s making BTC legal tender, over 10K a day are downloading crypto apps & signing up; vs the 10-15 previously. Reduces Western Union fees from 40% to 2 cents per transaction. Frictionless payments, the stuff of Bankster nightmares I’d imagine. Or at least hope!
That is exactly the point Anthony. Lyn Alden spoke at Bitcoin 2021 and she made many of these points about Bitcoin’s network effect once Lightning Network was operational.
This is why I am confident Wall St. understands this, the Davos Crowd is scared shitless and because of this Bitcoin and DeFi are driving a massive wedge between all of these factions.
Tom – do you consider any of the Vogontastic central bankers capable of launching and maintaining a credible CBDC? Because I don’t. I don’t think they know the first thing about crypto, and never will.
And they certainly don’t want thirty different CBDCs straddling their empire.
I say that they farmed out the development work to their pet Zuckerberg and he’s about to hand Diem over so they can use it as crypto to power their global UBI.
Which of course will mean private crypto will go sleepy-night-night.
They arne’t going to make a crypto, ivor. They are just going to do what they do now, an encrypted database that they don’t have to know how to run and remove cash as an option.
Zuckerberg’s Diem is a threat no doubt, but he’s been slapped down a couple of times now. Not enough on the table for Wall St. who now rightly understand they can’t stop bitcoin.
New to the site so this may have been covered previously and/or somewhere else.
I agree with the thrust of all that Tom is saying but I still see a basic flaw in Bitcoin (but not crypto generally). I can agree that crypto will be everywhere in the future but which one? It seems that hundreds of new coins come up everyday. There is no limit. The downfall of Bitcoin will likely be Bitcoin 2.0. Is Bitcoin popular simply because it was the first mover in the crypto space. That doesn’t seem like enough for me to make any meaningful investment in it.
If all that private money wants in, specifically then, where is it going to go and why and what will stop it from simply flitting off to the next new crypto?
Really appreciate the info and discussions here. Thanks for any comments.
I regard to your comment that many other people are just not seeing what you are seeing in regard to the schisms in the globalist oligarchy:
I think most people see it simply as a battle between oligarchic autocracy vs democracy. And thus it becomes “us” verses “them”. You were one of the first pundits that asks the question: “Who are “they”?
One of the import things to understand that when democracy is eliminated for the masses, it does not disappear, but instead moves “upward”.
Here is a concrete example:
For the vast majority of people who are not in the “Party” the State looks like a towering, monolithic, opaque authoritarian edifice. However for those in the “Party” it is far from that.
So, I was like: “Wow, Luongo really gets it!”
But the reason I easily understood what you were saying is because I am very familiar with Soviet history. For most living in the West, delving into the minutia of Soviet history will feel like a dry and tedious endeavor, because much of it is about truly nutty and discredited Marxist ideas and concepts. However, if you can get past that, Soviet history is really a “MASTER CLASS” in the oligarchic rule.
For anyone with time on their hands, I would recommend Robert Conquest’s “The Great Terror” or biographies of Stalin by Kotkin “Stalin: Paradoxes of Power” or Khlevniuk “Stalin: New Biography of a Dictator”.
The parallels between all of that and what we are seeing now are amazing. IMHO
