Bitcoin Soars Above $50,000 For First Time Ever

A little over a month ago – when JPMorgan and every so-called financial expert was bashing bitcoin and saying a crash is imminent – we said that $50,000 is only a matter of weeks if not days (on its way to $100,000). Well, that prediction came true at exactly 7:29am ET this morning when bitcoin soared by some $2,000 in minutes, rising above $50,000 for the first time ever and hitting $50,547.70…

Texas Power Retailers to Customers in Face of Freeze: Please, Leave Us

Some retail power companies in Texas are making an unusual plea to their customers amid a deep freeze that has sent electricity prices skyrocketing: Please, leave us.

One power supplier, Griddy, told all 29,000 of its customers that they should switch to another provider as spot electricity prices soared to as high as $9,000 a megawatt-hour. Griddy’s customers are fully exposed to the real-time swings in wholesale power markets, so those who don’t leave soon will face extraordinarily high electricity bills.

The World Will Pay More for Meat as Food Inflation Deepens

There are signs that the food inflation that’s gripped the world over the past year, raising prices of everything from shredded cheese to peanut butter, is about to get worse.

The Covid-19 pandemic upended food supply chains, paralyzing shipping, sickening workers that keep the world fed and ultimately raising consumer grocery costs around the globe last year.

Virologist On Wuhan Trip: Seafood Market ‘Not The Whole Story’ In Early Outbreak

After traveling to Wuhan, China, a team of researchers from the World Health Organization is readying a preliminary report on the origins of the coronavirus.

Wuhan is where the virus was first reported in December 2019.

The WHO team’s main public conclusion so far is that it’s “extremely unlikely” that the virus originated in a lab in Wuhan. The scientists think the virus most likely started in bats, then jumped to other animals, then to humans.

Natural-gas prices soar amid freezing U.S. temperatures, while oil prices settle at a more than one-year high

Natural-gas futures led an across-the-board surge in energy prices on Tuesday, as swaths of the U.S. struggled with subzero temperatures and rolling blackouts hit several states.

“Elevated, weather-driven demand across much of the nation” supported the rally for natural gas, said Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research. “Supply has also become an issue in some locations as the storage infrastructure has literally frozen, preventing physical delivery to various consumers,” including utility companies, which contributed to some regional power issues.

Wall Street Short Sellers: Hated For Centuries

Wall Street “short sellers” are often cast as villains. They make money when most others are losing it — that is, when stock prices fall.

In recent weeks they were painted as the enemy again, when hedge funds made bets that prices would fall for several so-called “meme stocks” like GameStop and AMC. These bets drew the attention and ire of small investors, setting off a tug of war between the two sides.

USPS increased revenue by 11% in Q1, but the Postmaster General still wants to restructure

This week marks a rare moment of celebration for the typically ailing United States Postal Service. The agency reported a net profit for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 (ending Dec. 31, 2020), the first quarterly profit recorded in several years.

Still, the party hats remain tucked away in the cupboard. USPS warned that the surge is likely temporary and stems from a COVID-related boom in package deliveries. This isn’t sustainable, said Postmaster General Louis DeJoy in a statement. His controversial plans to restructure and come up with a new financial plan remain in place.

Millions Are Out Of A Job. Yet Some Employers Wonder: Why Can’t I Find Workers?

At a time when millions of Americans are unemployed, businessman Bill Martin has a head-scratching problem: He’s got plenty of jobs but few people willing to take them.

“I keep hearing about all the unemployed people,” Martin says. “I certainly can’t find any of those folks.”

    T-shirt or disguise time?

    https://canadianpatriot.org/2021/02/15/how-conspiracy-theorizing-may-soon-get-you-labelled-a-domestic-terrorist/

    ... After the Great Reset Agenda was announced in June 2020, Sunstein was recruited to head the propaganda wing of the World Health Organization known as the WHO Technical Advisory Group where his skills in mass behavior modification was put to use in order to counteract the dangerous spread of conspiracy theories that persuaded large chunks of the world population that COVID-19 was part of a larger conspiracy to undermine national sovereignty and impose world government.

    The head of WHO described Sunstein’s mandate in the following terms:

    “In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, countries are using a range of tools to influence behavior: Information campaigns are one tool, but so are laws, regulations, guidelines and even fines…That’s why behavioral science is so important.”

    Today, hundreds of Obama-era behaviorists have streamed back into influential positions of government under the new “scientifically managed”, evidence-based governance coming back to life under Biden promising to undo the dark days of President Trump.

    Ideologues who have been on record calling for world government, the elimination of the sick and elderly (see Obamacare architect Ezekiel Emmanuel’s Why I Hope to Die At 75), and population control are streaming back into positions of influence. If you think that anything they have done to return to power is unlawful, or antithetical to the principles of the Constitution, then these technocrats want you to know that you are a delusional conspiracy theorist and as such, represent a potential threat to yourself and the society of which you are but a part.

    If you question World Health Organization narratives on COVID-19, or doubt the use of vaccines produced by organizations like Astra Zeneca due to their ties to eugenics organizations then you are a delusional conspiracy theorist.

    If you doubt that global warming is caused by carbon dioxide or that implementing the Paris Climate accords may cause more damage to humanity than climate change ever could, then you must be a conspiracy theorist.

    If you believe that the U.S. government just went through a regime change coordinated by something called “the deep state”, then you run the risk of being labelled a delusional threat to “the general welfare” deserving of the sort of treatment dolled out to any typical terrorist.

    It appears that the many comforts we have taken for granted over the past 50-year drunken stupor called “globalization” are quickly coming to an end, and thankfully not one but two opposing intentions for what the new operating system will be are actively vying for control. This clash was witnessed in stark terms during the January 2021 Davos Summit, where Xi Jinping and Putin’s call for a new system of win-win cooperation, multipolarity and long-term development offset the unipolar zero-sum ideologues of the west seeking to undo the foundations of industrial civilization.

    Either way you look at it, conspiracies for good and for evil do exist now, as they have from time immemorial. The only question is which intention do you want to devote your life towards?

    Bold my emphasis. I am thinking those Resilience t-shirts will fit the bill nicely...

    Another excellent read from Matt Ehret of the Canadian Patriot

    Dr. Lee Merritt: mRNA agent can be weaponized to kill everyone who was vaccinated

    https://rumble.com/vdww5v-dr-lee-merit-the-vaxx-is-preparing-the-world-for-a-mass-death-event.html

    Rumble — The things revealed in this video are explosive. The Covid Vaccines will allow future coronaviruses to enter your body and multiply without resistence. Thus when the Chinese Military weaponizes the next coronavirus EVERYONE VACCINATED WILL DIE.

    This current mRNA vaccine is preparing the world for a mass DEATH EVENT when BILLIONS WILL DIE ALL WITHIN A FEW WEEKS. — This is their intent. All the Vaxx companies are infiltrated by Chinese Military Agents and are compromised to prepare this.

    Dr. Merit explains the medicine behind the warfare method. And gives a lot of details about this new form of warfare.

    Peak Trust: Greenwald debunks false and sensational claims about Jan. 6 riot

    https://greenwald.substack.com/p/the-false-and-exaggerated-claims

    What took place at the Capitol on January 6 was undoubtedly a politically motivated riot. As such, it should not be controversial to regard it as a dangerous episode. Any time force or violence is introduced into what ought to be the peaceful resolution of political conflicts, it should be lamented and condemned.

    But none of that justifies lying about what happened that day, especially by the news media. Condemning that riot does not allow, let alone require, echoing false claims in order to render the event more menacing and serious than it actually was. There is no circumstance or motive that justifies the dissemination of false claims by journalists. The more consequential the event, the less justified, and more harmful, serial journalistic falsehoods are.

    Yet this is exactly what has happened, and continues to happen, since that riot almost seven weeks ago. And anyone who tries to correct these falsehoods is instantly attacked with the cynical accusation that if you want only truthful reporting about what happened, then you’re trying to “minimize” what happened and are likely an apologist for if not a full-fledged supporter of the protesters themselves.

    One of the most significant of these falsehoods was the tale — endorsed over and over without any caveats by the media for more than a month — that Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick was murdered by the pro-Trump mob when they beat him to death with a fire extinguisher. That claim was first published by The New York Times on January 8 in an article headlined “Capitol Police Officer Dies From Injuries in Pro-Trump Rampage.” It cited “two [anonymous] law enforcement officials” to claim that Sicknick died “with the mob rampaging through the halls of Congress” and after he “was struck with a fire extinguisher....”

    BlackRock to "Dabble" in Bitcoin

    The biggest money managing firm of all time, BlackRock, advises that companies are seeking places to store their reserve funds in an inflationary environment.  Bitcoin is being used for this purpose and BlackRock is "dabbling" in it.

    Other companies are too

    While 5% of companies that confirmed they intend to invest in Bitcoin as a corporate asset this year, .... over 70% of respondents stated that one of the top things they want to know is what others are doing with Bitcoin. .... The technology sector showed the most attraction towards Bitcoin with 50% of respondents from this industry anticipating holding the cryptocurrency in the future....

    Investment firm ARK Invest suggested earlier this month that

    if  “all S&P 500 companies were to allocate 1% of their cash” to BTC, the digital asset’s price would increase by roughly $40,000, driving the price to just shy of $90,000.

    Should [that]... rise to 10% of cash reserves, ARK claims Bitcoin will increase by $400,000.

    thc on Dr. LM

    Thanks Tom. Her interview provides the best fit explanation of the constellation of data points to date (IMO).

    Other data points that resonate:

    • PP - Would explain why discussion of dwsnbn2 has somewhat throttled.
    • ao - on the who and why.

    The details don't have to match her discussion exactly, could be other actors at work as well.

    Great video with Dr. Lee Merritt, thc0655

    Great video, thc0655; thanks for posting!  I really liked Dr. Merritt's discussion about the vaccine;  I found it to be both eloquent and plausible.

    I followed the link at the video's website to thenewamerican.com, and found a follow-on interview between Alex Newman and Dr. Lee Merritt, "Beware of COVID “Vaccine,” Warns Top Doctor".  It covers a lot of the same topics as the video you posted, but is its own conversation.  Interesting to hear so many of the things we've learned about here covered by others, like what supplements to take and alternative treatments.

    Dr Lee Merrit's background

    h/t thc0655, Time2Help, Pinecarr

    I usually abhor video presentations.  But this one seems outstanding.  Smart woman! Not prone to hyperbole.  Clear on what is factual and what is her conjecture.  Strongly recommended to PPers!

    Who is the speaker:  Dr Lee Merritt, MD

    • Graduate of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.
    • Did training in Internal Medicine (not sure if board certified)
    • Board Certified in Orthopedic Surgery (5 year specialization) United States Naval Medical Center.
    • Certified in Spine Surgery (1 or 2 year subspecialty fellowship at University of Rochester)
    • Fellowship in Anti-Aging Medicine
    • Won competition at age 63 as a female body builder
    • Lives on a small farm in Nebraska, gardens and raises chickens.

    Alternative Medical Training:  Considers Joseph Mercola a personal hero, Did anti-aging Medicine certification, is absolutely a non-conformist (past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons--an alternative medicine group.)

    This is an incredibly smart and energetic woman.  Exceptionally well trained. Well read, articulate (my assessment).

    A couple of major points:

    • You don't need to hide in your basement.
    • We actually have treatment for COVID.  (Best if started early.  She gives a pack of supplements in her office to newly diagnosed outpatients of NAC, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc, Selenium, Quercitin.)  Immune system improvement.
    • High risk cases get anti-virals:  HCQ, Ivermectin, Vita D, several others.  ("Don't tell me 'there is no evidence'.")
    • Masks don't do much.  More a symbol of compliance with the medical technocracy.
    • We have never had a successful coronavirus vaccine.  Four prior vaccine candidates have killed all of the experimental animals when the post-vaccinated were challenged with wild virus.  No CV vaccine has made it to the human study level.

    ---

    Several aspects of the COVID epidemic and vaccine rollout have the ring of 5th Generation Warfare.  She reviews the generations of warfare.  Fifth generation is the form where you don't realize you are under attack or who the attacker is until it is all over.

    Censorship signals what the truth is.  "When you catch flack you are over the target."

    • Lab synthesized origin.  Almost certainly.  She suspects deliberate release but can't prove it.  Mention highly censored.
    • Effective treatments exist.  Highly censored.  Anti-viral treatments with anti-microbial agents exist.  This has not been well known among doctors for 40 years.  (actively being hidden).
    • Governmental regulations preventing doctors from prescribing of meds with antiviral effects.  Highly censored.
    • Nuclear missile tech analogy:   Using a common, benign, highly-transmissible virus as the delivery system base with modification to increase delivery to new tissues.  The nuclear warhead--the spike protein which attaches to the ACE2 pathway/receptor in MANY tissues  (heart, brain, testes, etc).  Converts this benign "common cold" virus into one that can kill and disable.
    • Posting the package insert for the COVID vaccine on facebook will be censored.

    Used virus to create fear.  Fear required to take down economy and taking down children with isolation and masks.

    Since we actually have effective anti-viral medicines, making a vaccine isn't really needed.

    Why would they hide treatment?  1)   69 Billion vaccine industry goes to zero.  HCQ, Ivm, and several others.  "Lysosomal Tropic Agents."  2)  If there is an effective treatment they cannot terrorize you with injectable mRNA biologics ("vaccines" are not vaccines--will call biologics).

    Chinese military (PLA) funded to come to the USA to work in US virology / bioweapons labs.  Host points out that many PLA members are working in US vaccine maker labs.

    Every year will need a new injectable mRNA biologic for next years' viruses.

    With billions of dollars of funding why doesn't the CDC drill down on the difference between the mild illness and the severe illness cases?  CDC did not do this.

    Indonesian's looked at this difference and found Vitamin D level very important.  Under 30 -->severe course.  Huge improvement in severity course from good Vitamin D level.  The single most important thing we can do is get our Vitamin D level up (and sunlight doesn't always do it.)

    ---

    Vaccine (injectable biologics)

    Must have informed consent.  Nuremberg Trials established this.

    Current Vaccines are not Vaccines:   Not giving a portion of a pathogen (what a vaccine is), but giving your cells the instructions (mRNA) to MAKE portions of the pathogen inside your own cells.

    Vaccine was sent out to distribution center days BEFORE the FDA gave authorization for its emergency release.

    We do NOT know what is in this "vaccine."  This information is not public.  Only the people at the top know what the mRNA actually codes for.  They say that it is for the spike protein.  But is that correct?  And what else?  We don't know.

    Conjecture:    Could the "vaccine" be a BINARY WEAPON.  A two stage poison.  Give stage 1 (the injectable biologic) and leave.  Then when the CV comes through the population a few years later the vaccinated have a fatal reaction.  Don't know.  Similar to the ferret experiments where animals died much later when challenged with the wild type virus.

    More information on available treatments at American Front Line Doctors, American Physicians And Surgeons (an alternative medicine organization), FrontLine Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC).

    what's in the code

    Yeah.  As someone who writes code for a living, if I don't have access to the source code for a program, it makes me a little nervous.

    If that program is being injected into my body?

    I'll pass.  Someone else can inject the code and - I'll see how it goes in 5 years.

    Given how Pharma tells us that supplements are useful only to aid in a vaccination campaign (I'm exaggerating - but not by much), I just don't trust these people at all.  Who knows what their motives are?  It certainly isn't to make me and my family healthier.  They never do that, as far as I can tell.  Unless they can charge thousands of dollars.  In recurring revenue.  Monthly.

    The system is just utterly sociopathic.  It is here to harvest money from us.  I really wouldn't put anything past them.

    And there may be a depopulation agenda too.  Who can say?  If you can't read the code, you will never know.

    This is why engineers like "open source."  With - say - bitcoin, we can read the code, and from that, gain confidence that its not just a tower of bullshit.  [And - did I mention - Microsoft is a closed source shop.  At least it was back in the day.  Not that I'd really *want* the code.  But even theoretically, we have no idea what that operating system does.]

    So these people set up the situation: "there are no treatments."  "Hide in your basement."  "This girl required a triple lung transplant."  "You cannot see grandma."  "Supplements are placebos."  "You have no hope."

    By the way, here's a vaccine!

    It sure seems like a setup to me.  But I'm a crank.  So what do I know?

    Plus.  Ivermectin works.  Its been around since the 80s.  I'll stick with that.

    Just watched the video and agree...

    A must watch! This is for sure one of the best videos I have seen yet. This is what integrity looks like in practice.

    Wish we could clone Dr. Merritt, many times over. Lord knows we need more like her.

    Peak Trust: CDC gets ridiculous-er about masks

    This does not appear to be satire or a joke since it’s found on the CDC.gov site. Two masks under nylon hosiery is now the gold standard for masking.

    are non mRNA vaccines okay?

    I watched this. Her point about the complicity of physicians who shut up and say nothing in order to preserve their own careers/income was very powerful.

    Can I ask, Sand_Puppy, are the non mRNA vaccines okay to take? I mean, if one had to take something in order to live a normal life and travel by plane ever again?

    Yes I do understand that but at this rate I'll be 150 years old by then, I can't wait that long -- if I want to travel, I will have to take a calculated risk. So my question stands -- is ADE equally likely to occur with traditional vaccines as in mRNA ones? Also, how about if a person has had covid-19, does that mean the spike can enter more easily a second time? I ask because ZeroHedge wrote about this issue of ADE a year ago.
