Though only a few businesses are accepting Bitcoin as payment, it is already being widely used for currency exchange and trade. One draw of Bitcoin is that central banks have no control over the flow of money, which theoretically puts monetary exchange in the hands of the people.
Though Bitcoin advertises freedom, what if it is simply a ruse set up by the New World Order to control us?
The conspiracy community has been wondering if Bitcoin isn’t just a nicely disguised NWO creation. After all, one of the quickest ways for the New World Order to take control of the world would be by knowing how everyone spends their money. And since all Bitcoin transactions are recorded on a public ledger known as a blockchain, they wouldn’t even have to apply NSA-like tactics to know how much you spent on beer last month.
Already the currency’s optimistically transparent framework has made it possible to track down and crackdown on illicit activities, as evidenced by the drug website Silk Road. (The FBI takedown would have been nearly impossible if Silk Road had used cash.)
The U.S. government, of course, is all for the adoption of Bitcoin. As UK podcaster Joe Ressington points out, this makes sense since because “the one world government and army are basically here already but the one world currency is not.” As the world’s de facto government and military head, the only thing keeping the U.S. from being the absolute ruler of the world is a ubiquitous currency.
And it seems as though the U.S. government might agree. As Reddit user nicolaosq points out, the NSA has been investigating the laurels of cryptographic monies since the 1990s.
Other reddit users like Ramv46 think that while the idea behind the Bitcoin seems initially sound, it is actually against people’s best interests. He states: “I’ve thought this for a while…I support the idea of the anonymity of [Bitcoin] and its idea, but in doing so you’re forced to actually advocate for the first true one world currency, an idea anyone and everyone should be against.”
And if you’re still skeptical about the real reasons behind Bitcoin, just think of the currency’s founder, Satoshi Nakamoto. Despite being one of the world’s largest holders of Bitcoins, no one knows who he truly is. It’s like the New World Order isn’t even trying to cover its tracks.

The legal tradition brought over to North America from Europe stipulated that if a woman was married, she had no separate legal existence apart from her husband.
She was a <i>feme covert</i>, literally a covered woman, and a dependent. She couldn’t own property, sign legal documents, testify in a court of law, or manage her own money. If her husband died, she was not allowed to be the uncontested legal guardian of her own children.
It’s no secret that women have historically been denied the right to vote.
Long considered the inferior sex, women were denied suffrage because they were overly emotional creatures whose place was in the home. In 1910, National Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage published a pamphlet that argued women should not be allowed to vote because, among others reasons, “90 percent of the women either do not want to, or do not care” and “80 percent of the women eligible to vote are married and can only double or annul their husband’s votes.”
But the most persuasive reason for denying women suffrage was because “you do not need a ballot to clean out your sink spout.” Whatever that means.
Malala Yousafzai made headlines when she garnered a Nobel Peace Prize nomination for her work promoting education for women in Taliban-controlled parts of Pakistan.
The Taliban actively works to limit the rights of women by not allowing them to speak in public, attend school, or walk the streets alone, while in some cases, they instead encourage women under the age of 16 to marry.
When the Taliban controlled Afghanistan, women were not allowed to see male doctors, but since women couldn’t obtain an education, female doctors were understandably rare. Instead, females were forced to travel long distances for basic healthcare or create informal clinics in their homes.
“Violence against Women is Fake”
An activist group that calls itself A Voice for Men, actively denies that violence against women is a pervasive problem. The Australian news director for the group, Dr. Greg Canning, argues that reports and statistics about domestic violence are just drummed up to perpetuate what he calls the “abuse industry.”]]>

Here is our final excerpt from that book, covering the unsolved mystery of the three “tramps” picked up by police after Kennedy’s death and who, for years, have been the center of speculation as to their real identities, motives and association with the government.
Another issue that stirred controversy was that several photographs were taken of three men who were arrested shortly after the assassination. In point of fact, they never were arrested, but they appear to be in custody and look to be led down the street by officers.
But there are a lot of weird things that researchers noticed about those photographs. The men were reportedly “three tramps” who police had found inside the boxcar of a freight train near the spot where Kennedy was killed. But they didn’t actually look like tramps. For example, they had very good shoes. If you look closely at the photos, the cops who are with them seem very relaxed; too relaxed, in some observers’ opinions. If you look online by searching “JFK three tramps,” you’ll see what I mean. [Ed. note: See above.]
The FBI said that the three men in the photos were just tramps; that they were arrested, checked out, and then released. They even released their names: Gus Abrams, Harold Doyle, and John F. Gedney. Researchers checked it out, and sure enough, the specific three individuals whom the FBI had conveniently identified, actually were arrested and were apparently homeless.
But notably absent was any proof that they were actually the same three men who had appeared in those photos. So everybody sort of wrote that one off; even Oliver Stone, director of the film JFK, apparently said that “he’d be happy to concede that one mystery had been resolved” on the condition that he’d still like to see photos of the men matched with the photos of the tramps. But further controversy has ensued over the years because other researchers have attributed “photographic matches” to various individuals.
You may have heard or seen it written that CIA agent E. Howard Hunt was “one of the three tramps in Dealey Plaza.” Part of the confusion resulted from sorting out the arrest records of men who were taken in by police after the assassination. Other researchers “identified” people they thought were likely conspirators—such as Sturgis and Hunt—and became convinced by the photographic similarities that it was actually them in the photos.
But it’s easy to compare photographs and be “taken in”; convinced of a match in identities that turns out to have been incorrect. That’s why police departments only trust forensic artists to make scientific matches using proven methods in the practice of criminology.
Forensic expert Lois Gibson is known as The World’s Most Successful Forensic Artist. She is the world record holder for the most forensic success stories; over a thousand criminals have been caught by her forensic methods…

In his new book (published just in time for the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death), Stone focuses on one plotter as “The Man Who Killed Kennedy”: Lyndon Johnson.
While numerous, popular conspiracy theories involving LBJ and JFK have been debunked, namely the one about LBJ and Nixon attending a party together the night before and prophesying the end of the Kennedy clan, Stone sticks to his guns for more than 350 pages before coming upon his supposedly most damning piece of evidence…
Dr. Charles Crenshaw, who treated Oswald’s mortal gunshot wound, recalls receiving a call from the newly-minted President around the time of the operation:
“This is President Lyndon B. Johnson,” the voice thundered. “Dr. Crenshaw, how is the accused assassin?”
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. The very first thought that I had was, how did he know when to call?
“Dr. Crenshaw,” [LBJ continued] “I want a death-bed confession from the accused assassin. There’s a man in the operating room who will take the statement.”
Sure enough, there was allegedly such a man, Stone implies, standing around with a gun protruding visibly from his pocket. However, none of this actually constitutes any real evidence that LBJ was “tying up loose ends,” as the author suggests.
As historian and LBJ biographer Robert Caro notes, the new President was worried about conspiracy theories from the beginning, telling friends and associates he wanted a thorough, solid investigation into the murder, which would mean the “death-bed confession” phone call checks out.
Does Stone limit himself by focusing on one conspiracy theory, “LBJ Did It”? No, because this story seeks only to cover the motive; it focuses only on what presumed facts point to the Vice President as the chief plotter, leaving the actual weapon, shooter and other specific circumstances from November 22, 1963 aside.
The book either rarely touches on or outright ignores the debate over shots fired, the Grassy Knoll or the Secret Service details’ alleged complicitness in the crime, although it does make its case against Johnson by thoroughly examining each aspect of the case that we can all agree is true: someone wanted Kennedy dead, Dallas was the perfect location, LBJ had numerous and well-documented reasons for wanting Kennedy dead, Oswald could possibly be a patsy or did not act alone (if at all), and, of course, that Jack Ruby rubbed out Oswald.
The rest of the story is up to you to determine, although Roger Stone wants you to remember three words while you go about your work: Lyndon Baines Johnson.

For now, the device is far from a reality. Google, through its Motorola Mobility division, has only filed an application for the patent, and many patents (if not most) fail to become anything more than just that.
In fact, companies will oftentimes file them to secure their rights over one bit of technology and aren’t necessarily interested in the whole shebang.
Then again, this particular patent is targeted to security personnel. With it, they could keep their hands free from cellphones or walkie talkies and simply speak through the Orwellian technology as it would transmit the user’s voice directly from their throat, where it’s applied, to a communications device or network.
As the document states, “mobile communication devices are often operated in noisy environments,” and this could help security teams deal with that as it’s essentially a noise-killing microphone.
Alternatively – and this is where it gets unsettling – the electronic skin tattoo is able to change its color to “detect skin resistance of a user.” That is, police officers, court systems, rogue CIA agents, could potentially use this wearable tech as a means of establishing or forcing the truth out of you. The document goes on:
“It is contemplated that a user that may be nervous or engaging in speaking in falsehoods may exhibit different galvanic skin response than a more confident, truth telling individual.”
Depending on how reliable the test is determined to be, like Apple’s fingerprinting system, this could very well be a blow to the Fifth Amendment, which gives you a constitutional protection against self-incrimination.
But a flash of color from this tattoo could essentially whittle down for authorities what is known to you. And that’s a slippery slope if we ever saw one.

Many argue that the law is imperfect, and most agree that it will do little to curb the sky-high costs associated with the healthcare industry throughout our country.
By 2020, healthcare programs are expected to represent 32 percent of our domestic spending. No single reason is to blame and not one band-aid measure will fix this…
The Uninsured Are Forced to Turn to the ER
As of 2012, 15% of the population is uninsured.
Many times, their sole recourse for medical treatment is the emergency room, the only place where hospitals are not allowed to turn away patients even if they cannot pay.
In a historic economic downturn where the poor are ever poorer (and the rich ever happier for it), uninsured patients will go to the ER even just for a migraine, get charged $800, and then never manage to pay off the bill.
Besides the fact that this makes ER wait times longer, hospitals pass on the costs to others by raising their rates. Everyone pays, one way or another.
Ripping Off the Uninsured
Instead of taking pitying the uninsured, hospitals have the nasty habit of picking on them (and those who may choose to pay out of pocket).
Often, hospitals are found to charge more for the same procedure to those without insurance than they would someone covered by insurance or Medicare. The mark-up could be as much as four times the price.
Hospitals Are Hooked on Ads
2009 numbers put hospital advertising costs at an annual $1.23 billion and the figure has been steadily rising.
Apart from questions of its effectiveness, ballooning advertising budgets are contributing to runaway healthcare costs. St. Louis University Hospital was able to invest in a fancy new outpatient bone marrow transplant clinic after it diverted money away from its ad budget.]]>

At the time, we were as frightened of a worldwide outbreak as the next person and prepared to inject any government-sanctioned antiviral into our arms. Thankfully, as it turns out, the H1N1 “pandemic” was blown way out of proportion. Reports indicate that the WHO (World Health Organization) prematurely cried pandemic and pressured governments to stockpile vaccines.
These same reports have demonstrated hidden linkages between some WHO officials in charge of managing the pandemic and pharmaceutical companies who made H1N1 antiviral drugs.
Does this mean that the WHO created the H1N1 virus, released it into unsuspected populations, and then waited for the Big Pharma kickbacks to come rolling in?
Nothing as sinister as that. But an investigative report by the peer-reviewed British Medical Journal (BMJ) indicates that at least three members of a WHO committee who developed the agency’s pandemic game plan were receiving “consulting fees” from two of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the business. It is unknown who these members are, as the members of the WHO H1N1 emergency committee are officially anonymous. The WHO’s secretary-general stated that the reason these committee member names have not been made public is because anonymity protects “the integrity and the independence of members while doing this critical work.” She did, however, promise to publicly release the names “at the appropriate time.”
Another independent report by the Council of Europe was launched because of worries that the decision to declare H1N1 a pandemic was influenced by the Big Pharma companies linked to WHO employees. While not directly accusing any individuals of accepting kickbacks, the report nevertheless concluded that the relationship between the WHO and Big Pharma led to “distortion of priorities of public health services…, [a] waste of large sums of public money, and also unjustified scares and fears about health risks faced by the… public at large.”
Between these two reports you get the picture that integral employees at the WHO were receiving industry money from Big Pharma. Those same employees were part of the team that bumped up the H1N1 flu scare to a full-scale pandemic, thus causing governments across the world to spend billions stockpiling antiviral drugs made by the same companies that were paying WHO employees.
So, did Big Pharma bribe the WHO to declare a pandemic? Probably not.
Is the relationship between the WHO and Big Pharma a little too cosy? It’s likely.
Did Big Pharma get rich off the H1N1 scare? Most definitely.

While it is legally recognized as a tax-exempt religious organization in the United States, it is merely a non-profit in Norway, and the French parliament called it a dangerous cult. Perhaps one of the most controversial allegations dogging the Church is its purported link to several mysterious deaths of its members and former members.
Though the Internet is ablaze with rumors, the Church of Scientology has never been conclusively linked to any of these deaths (and few of them were even considered to be homicides in the first place). The Church has discredited rumors of foul play on a case-by-case basis. “The Way to Happiness,” a 21-step guide to better living written by Hubbard himself very specifically states that “the way to happiness does not include murdering.”
One of the most notorious deaths tied to Scientology, Lisa McPherson was a member of the church who dared ask for psychiatric help after a car accident in 1995. Instead of placing her within a hospital, McPherson was put in the care of the Ft. Harrison Hotel, Scientology’s flagship building in Clearwater, FL. Seventeen days later, she was dead.
Her death spawned protests outside of the Church’s headquarters, a lawsuit from her family accusing the Church of negligence, and prosecution from the Pinellas State Attorney’s office. The Church was charged with a second degree felony for practicing medicine without a license and abuse of a disabled adult, but the charges were soon dropped when the medical examiner changed the cause of death from unknown to accidental.
Marty Rathbun, the former second-in-command of the Church, alleges that the examiner did not act of her own will but was bribed by the Church into changing the cause of death. Seven years later, the McPherson estate settled a wrongful death suit with the Church out of court.
A dedicated member of the Church of Scientology in the 1970s, Susan Meister worked her way into Sea Org, an order of the church’s most dedicated members, and onto the <i>Apollo</i>, the flagship of Scientology’s fleet of ships where L. Ron Hubbard lived. A few months later, Meister’s family received a call saying that she had committed suicide.
Her father, George Meister, asked that his daughter’s body be flown back to the U.S. for proper burial. An unidentified person who claimed to represent the Church and told moving his daughter’s corpse would not be possible, that the Scientologists would bury her in Morocco…
George flew to Morroco, he told anti-Scientology author Jon Atack, only to be greeted by a Sea Org member and shown a photograph of his dead daughter. George specifically recalled she was “wearing the new dress her mother had made for her, her arms crossed with a long barreled revolver on her breast.
A bullet hole was in the center of her forehead and blood was running out of the corners of her mouth. I began to wonder how Susan could possibly shoot herself in the center of her forehead with the long barreled revolver.” The Church of Scientology maintains Meister committed suicide and there was never a formal investigation into her death in the U.S.
Mary Florence Barnett
David Miscavige was L. Ron Hubbard’s assistant and is the current leader of the Church of Scientology. His mother-in-law, Mary Florence “Flo” Barnett, became involved in a splinter sect of the Church, David Mayo’s Advanced Ability Center, in 1985. (Mayo, who had been Hubbard’s personal auditor, was ousted almost immediately after Miscaviage took over the Church.)
Then, on September 7th, Flo was found dead in her bedroom. She had been shot three times in the chest and once in the head with a rifle. Though there were two suicide notes, the coroner first suspected Barnett had been murdered, noting Barnett’s short stature, weak state and the length of the gun made murder an obvious possibility.
Her death was eventually ruled a suicide anyway by the Los Angeles County Coroner.
Son of the Scientology Founder and his third wife, Mary Sue Hubbard, Quentin was named Hubbard’s heir apparent in 1959, at the age of five. Quentin, however, wanted to be a pilot or a dancer, neither of which pleased his father. He was also rumored to be gay by former Scientologists such as Jon Atack, at a time when <i>Dianetics</i>, the foundational Scientology text, classified homosexuals as “sexual perverts” who were “quite ill physically.”
In 1975, the 22 year-old Quentin was found unconscious in his car in Las Vegas. A hose had been piping exhaust fumes into the car, and Quentin was rushed to the hospital but never regained consciousness before he died. And not from carbon monoxide poisoning – the coroner detected no trace of carbon monoxide in his bloodstream. (The coroner’s reportalso indicated a number of needle punctures on his arms.)
The coroner didn’t suspect anything and the Church is silent when it comes to Quentin, never referencing him anywhere.]]>

Currently gravely injured, he has not been able to deny or verify the law enforcement theory that he’s an anti-government goofball who was targeting TSA agents. All they have to go on are eyewitness accounts and the anti-government literature he was allegedly carrying.
His manifesto mentioned the New World Order, fiat currency and the Federal Reserve, which suggests he may believe that the world’s elite are conspiring against us. (Already, there are larger anti-government sects across the country forming that can be as lethal as Ciancia is alleged to be.)
Of course, the conflicting reports on Ciancia and the quickness in which conspiracy theorists label any tragedy a false flag has people wondering if the LAX shooting was somehow staged or fabricated.
Here are six questions people think are worth asking:
1. Was the CIA Involved?
Ciancia, when broken down, spells out CIA-n-CIA. Knowing that people would assume they were involved, given their history of shady operations, why would the CIA purposely plant something so obvious in their presumed patsy?
2. Were the Anti-Government Materials Planted?
To many, it just seems too convenient that buzzwords like “NWO” and “fiat currency” were in Ciancia’s manifesto. Could it be that the anti-government literature Ciancia had with him was planted by authorities?
3. Had LAX Police Been Planning For This?
Just three weeks before the incident, LAX police prepared for an incident like this one. Their Police Chief even admitted as much. (Of course, every security agency in the world is prepped for such events, especially after 9/11.)
4. Isn’t It A Little Too Convenient That Ciancia Isn’t Able To Speak? (Much the Boston Bombings suspect.)
A lot of what authorities are going on at the moment is pure speculation. But, like with other supposed false flags, the person with the most info (the perpetrator/innocent patsy) is usually injured in some way that impedes communication with investigators.
5. Is Ciancia A Former TSA Agent?
Reports first said that Ciancia was a TSA Agent and had connections to the man he killed. Then those reports were retracted.
Was Ciancia a TSA Agent and had his backstory conveniently flipped around for a government-sanctioned purpose?
6. Is It An Anti-Anti-Government Groups False Flag?
As the anti-government movement in the U.S. gains steam, the government is looking for ways to target these organizations. By setting up someone like Ciancia, an anti-government nut, to fall, they’ll be able to more freely pressure these fringe organizations.

Add this to the ever-growing list of Barack Obama conspiracy theories; there’s enough of them to fill the Qur’an three times over. You know, the holy book the president supposedly holds in greater esteem than our Constitution?
Video footage shows Karmel Allison, who has Type 1 diabetes and is currently pregnant, a supporter of Obamacare, standing directly behind the POTUS before becoming lightheaded. Along with a few of the other people present, Obama holds onto Allison as she seems to be on the brink of falling over. The president jokes: “This happens when I talk too long.”
A Weekly Standard blogger points out that some right-wingers aren’t accepting the images at face value, claiming instead:
“You will see in the… video that the pregnant woman is standing with a friend who is holding her hand with her arm wrapped around her waist. That is until she starts to “faint”. Then she steps slightly aside and never even looks at the women she is holding. She smiles a nervous smile for the camera because she has done her part in this extremely poorly orchestrated drama.
Why would they come up with this transparent attempt to manipulate the low information voters?
Did it make anyone feel warm and fuzzy for our hero President? Did it take the focus off the disastrous website?
Whatever the reason was that Obama and his advisers had to dream up this silly scheme it certainly smacks of desperation…”
It is a little suspicious to see the president glancing over his shoulder before the “fainting” as if anticipating something that was pre-planned… although wider views (or the media Obama was facing could have easily drawn his attention); however, there is no indication that he could have known to turn around during a televised speech to check on the health of his supporters at that exact moment and Allison’s story checks out. This, boys and girls, is what we call a terrific coincidence.
UPDATE: the woman herself says you should file this one under Barack Obama myths.
