    China Bans Cryptos. Again. And Again.

    Another day, another attempt by China to crash Crypto....  Three days after PBOC barred financial institutions from accepting bitcoin as payment, China's vice premier Liu He said  that China will crack down on bitcoin mining and trading activities, which of course is what we already knew.

    [W[ill China reiterate, i.e., repeat what it has said, the same news every day until bitcoin hits 0? ... And yes, this is as some have jokingly pointed out, the 1000th time China has tried to ban bitcoin:

    China's history with Bitcoin.

    1.  A large percentage of global bitcoin mining is happening in China.

    2. Last year it was established that owning virtual currencies [in China] was not in itself illegal, only that virtual currencies could not be used as legal tender. Even though exchanges are supposed to be illegal, numerous exchanges operate within the country, even partnering with government organizations.

    3.  China is attempting to launch a digital yuan.   [T]he reception of the digital yuan has been a total disaster so far much to Beijing's complete humiliation.

    It's a Virtual Panda Monium

    Toss in a few dot gov folks itching to stir the pot as well.

    A crypto crash in U.S. markets on Wednesday, spurred by China taking decisive action on barring cryptocurrencies as a means of payment at financial institutions and payment companies, apparently lit a fire under the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve to finally come out of their bunkers on the subject. Senator Sherrod Brown, Chair of the Senate Banking Committee, released a powerful letter to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the regulator of national banks (those that operate across state lines), warning about its chartering of crypto banks.

    Reading over the complaint

    Here is a quote from the complaint:

    III. REGULATORY AND FACTUAL CONTEXT The EUAs for COVID-19 vaccines have been illegal from the start. There is and has been no bona fide, underlying, epidemiological emergency from COVID-19. Instead, an artificial emergency that is nothing more than a legal construct has been imposed on the population, based on a false COVID-19 death count (the result of illegal rule changes obliterating the distinction between "dying with” and “dying from” COVID-19 and changing procedures and definitions for COVID-19 death certificates) and a false COVID-19 case count (the result of extensive PCR testing deployed at amplification cycles universally agreed, even by the WHO, the CDC and Dr. Fauci, to produce false positive test results). The false emergency and attendant psychological manipulation through incessant, prolonged, fear-based reporting of the inflated death and case counts, have culminated in a campaign to coerce the American people to accept the COVID-19 vaccines, which are untested and unproven biological agents. The American public are being misled as to the COVID-19 vaccines on multiple levels, including inter alia: to believe that they are FDA-approved; to believe that they are actually and in fact "safe and effective," as opposed to federal bureaucrats with apparent undisclosed conflicts-of-interest having determined merely that there is a "reasonable basis to conclude" that they are safe and effective; that there are no risks and many benefits, whereas in fact there are many risks and few benefits, particularly for children 15 and younger; that they are standard vaccines that involve the injection of dead or attenuated virus, versus gene therapy; that they prevent infection with COVID-19, and the transmission of COVID-19 to others and that there are  no other effective alternative treatments. At the same time, the American public are being presented with countless incentives to induce their acceptance of the COVID-19 vaccines, and threats of negative consequences if they refuse them. All of this vitiates informed consent.

    All of this is simply true.

    The culprits have painted themselves into a corner.

    Now let's see if the courts have the guts to do something about it.

    More from the Complaint

    Much of this stuff I did not know:

    1. Government Database (Defendant) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS):

    a. 99% of all vaccine deaths this year are from COVID-19 injections (1% are from the other 100 vaccines)

    b. The current reported number of vaccine deaths for Q1 2021 constitutes a 12,000% -25,000% increase in vaccine deaths vs. prior years

    c. These statistics are based on the VAERS system

    i. VAERS only captures 1-10% reactions for all vaccines. In ten years (2009-2019) there were 1529 vaccine deaths. In the first four months of 2021 there have been over 4,000.

    ii. In ten years (2009-2019) there were 1529 vaccine deaths. In the first four months of 2021 there have been over 4,000.

    iii. Reporting of many adverse events from COVID-19 vaccines are siphoned away from public VAERS into a nonpublic database called V-Safe which contradicts Congressional intent in creating VAERS in 1986 which was to make vaccine adverse events easily known to the public.

    reply to westcoastjan Not a minute too soon

    PHOENIX — Health officials say children in Arizona as young as 12 can get a COVID-19 vaccine when receiving other immunizations.

    State Department of Health Services director Dr. Cara Christ said Friday that pediatricians, per CDC guidance, can administer the Pfizer vaccine alongside other childhood vaccines.

    Previously, the CDC had recommended children wait two weeks in between vaccinations. Vaccine demand has been low statewide.

    The hours and days of operations at some state vaccine pods will be modified. More than 5.6 million vaccine doses have been given out in Arizona.

    The state on Friday reported 577 new confirmed COVID-19 cases and 22 more deaths.

    ___ And in other news:

    SALEM, Ore. — Oregon officials are betting that the desire to win $1 million in a lottery will boost the percentage of Oregonians who are vaccinated against the coronavirus.

    With only half of the people living in Oregon either fully or partially vaccinated, Oregon Lottery officials approved a plan Friday to hold a lottery. Those who have been vaccinated by June 27 will be eligible.

    “It’s never been easier to get a vaccine, so don’t miss your shot to enter,” Gov. Kate Brown said.

    She told reporters this is an effort to raise the percentage of adult Oregonians who get vaccinated to 70% in order to fully reopen the state.

    The Oregon Health Authority says 50% of Oregonians are vaccinated, with 39% having completed the series and 11% in progress.

    If Oregonians have received at least a first dose of Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson, they are automatically entered to win through the state’s vaccine database.

    Other states are also trying the tactic, including New York, Maryland and Ohio.

    Can anyone enlighten me about how the ranking system works here?

    I notice that one member who joined in December 2020 and has 148 posts is ranked Silver, while another member who joined in June 2008 and has 1311 posts is still rated Bronze. How does this work?

    ranking weirdness

    I noticed the same thing. My observation is that is seems comments made as a non-subscriber and subscriber are counted separately and are not combined for any given member. I would have well over a 1000 comments since I have been a member, but my time here has not always been as a subscriber. And further, some historic comments seem to have been dropped and no longer counted when PP did the last major site overhaul.  It would be nice if the non-subscriber vs subscriber comments were merged for one total. My two cents anyway.

    Aluminum-Ion Battery

    I was excited to read about this new battery technology. It looks like a very real breakthrough on many levels. Increased capacity, lighter weight and less need for cooling are all terrific advances and will make a huge improvement in the electric car experience.

    The ability to charge 60 times faster, however, while undoubtedly a major breakthrough, does not have the same level of importance in real life, especially in the electric car application. We are not going to see ten minute re-charge for electric vehicles anytime soon.

    The reason is simple. Charging a Tesla by plugging it into a wall socket takes a long time. “An adapter for a 110 volt outlet (NEMA 5-15) is included as standard equipment with all new Tesla cars. This provides approximately two to four miles of range per hour of charge."

    https://www.tesla.com/support/home-charging-installation/faq#normal-110-volt-outlet

    The fastest charge available is from the Tesla SuperCharger, which puts out 250 kW!!! but still takes 47 minutes to put back 80% of the battery capacity. https://www.motortrend.com/news/teslas-v3-supercharger-tested/

    To recharge the same vehicle, equipped with an Aluminum-Ion battery, sixty times faster ( <1 minute) the charging power would have to be 60 times greater, i.e. 15 Megawatts, which would require a separate sub-station for each charger.

    economy is apparently doing well for a particular segment of society

    I was speaking to a BMW salesman today who works at a Midwest mega dealership.  He said they are on track this month to have their highest monthly sales EVER.  I would not have expected this.  Just goes to show how much money is sloshing around the country.  Also was speaking to a retired blue collar couple the other day.  They have just bought a Lexus SUV.  They do not strike me as the type to pay anything but cash.  Almost every retired Boomer that I know is doing well financially.  Almost every Millennial that I know is just getting by (and certainly not as well as Boomers were at their age).  Income and asset inequality.  Mask vs. no mask.  Vaccine vs. no vaccine.  Straight vs. LGBTQIA.  Black and brown vs. white.  The sources of division in our society seem endless.

    Speaking of black and brown vs. white.  Has anyone else noted that almost every advertisement on TV, in magazines, on the Internet, etc. seems to feature black people far more prominently than any other racial/ethnic group, especially white people.  Ditto with featured articles in the print media.  At approximately 15% of the population in the US, the apparent overrepresentation of the black population is an interesting phenomenon.  If this is economically driven, why direct your appeal to only 15% of the population, unless of course, it is felt that such an appeal will also be effective marketing to other racial/ethnic groups who will make economic decisions in recognition of the sympathies of the generators of such media.  Of course, I realize there will be a reluctance to comment on this issue as simply acknowledging it will probably be considered racism by some.

    Here's something else.  This is a headline picture on ABC News.  If you had to guess, would you say this is a male hand, a female hand, or some other identity?.  It is noteworthy that such pictures are not selected at random but rather to impart a particular message.

    Who's hand is that?

    If I had to guess, I would say that hand belongs to a 40 yr old, somewhat overweight, middle class, black female who plays golf wearing denim shorts.

    In the divide and conquer strategy, one always supports the identifiable weaker demographic.

    In this case it is the POC. The reason for this is that more equality of strength implies greater destruction.

    Rest assured, if the POC got the upper hand, the support would swing over to the Whites in order to ensure a continuation of the conflict; which the enemy hope will lead to complete destruction, and a walk-in victory.

    It is a strategy as old as the hills. The way to beat it is through education, identifying those pulling the strings and make them go do an honest days labour. (Oh the horror!).

    Hi people. I think i never wrote here. Let me introduce myself, im Leandro from Brazil . Im a phys.ed teacher and enthusiast of the physiology in general.
    Turns out that there was a recent article peer reviewed that says about differences between efficacy and efficiency of vaccines to treat covid so it’s title is
    COVID-19 vaccine efficacy and effectiveness-the elephant (not) in the room

    Piero Olliaro et al. Lancet Microbe. 2021.
    and according to this the current vaccines effectiveness are way lower than what should be expected. They are for AstraZeneca–Oxford: 1.3% ;
    Moderna: 1.2% ;
    J&J: 1.2%;
    Pfizer: 0.84% ( zero point eighty four percent)
    that’s because there are in epidemiology  two different concepts , RRR ( relative risk reduction) and ARR( absolute risk reduction) .
    So they only cited the RRR on the previous studies shown to the FDA and the press and the world in general.

    in other words, apparently these vaccines worths nothing and it’s just easy money to these pharmaceutical industries.
    Cheers my friends.

    Once I was working at a place where we designed shipboard UPS.  One system that had the equivalent of 18 car batteries' worth of storage, controlled via a box the size of a large microwave ... it shorted.

    It was like the scene in Terminator when they "go through time".  A region about the size & shape of a soccer ball, vaporized, cutting through a variety of materials.

    The engineers were allowed to go outside and run errands while the air was cleared, which took about 4 hours.

    The manufacturing crew did not have that fortune and was forced to breathe vaporized capacitors, etc., all day long.

     

    It was a cruel management team that had done a leveraged buyout.  I left after a few months.

    One of the nicest coworkers, a tech who helped me scrounge parts for a test set-up, Larry T., was subsequently laid off.

    Larry subsequently returned to the campus with a firearm and killed the VP that made the decisions on the day of the Shorted UPS.  One of the mass shootings in San Diego in the year 1991.  The Big Short happened in 1990.

     

    Anyway it was an interesting combination of electrical & human special effects.

    US fertility rate falls to record low

    https://justthenews.com/world/amid-drop-us-fertility-rate-little-help-evident-pro-family-european-style-policies

    Demographers and policymakers scrambling to address the plummeting U.S. fertility rate may have to reconsider one oft-touted solution: The "pro-family" policies that have long dominated in Western Europe — without producing the anticipated fertility spikes.

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported this month that the country's fertility rate for 2020 was "down 4% from 2019," which the agency called "another record low for the United States."

    Conventional political wisdom has for years asserted that low birth rates can be tied to a lack of policies such as free government childcare and education, generous maternity and paternity leaves, and other government initiatives that ease the financial burden of having children.

    NYT: Most of world’s fertility rates are falling

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/22/world/global-population-shrinking.html

    All over the world, countries are confronting population stagnation and a fertility bust, a dizzying reversal unmatched in recorded history that will make first-birthday parties a rarer sight than funerals, and empty homes a common eyesore.

    Maternity wards are already shutting down in Italy. Ghost cities are appearing in northeastern China. Universities in South Korea can’t find enough students, and in Germany, hundreds of thousands of properties have been razed, with the land turned into parks.

    Like an avalanche, the demographic forces — pushing toward more deaths than births — seem to be expanding and accelerating. Though some countries continue to see their populations grow, especially in Africa, fertility rates are falling nearly everywhere else. Demographers now predict that by the latter half of the century or possibly earlier, the global population will enter a sustained decline for the first time.

    A planet with fewer people could ease pressure on resources, slow the destructive impact of climate change and reduce household burdens for women. But the census announcements this month from China and the United States, which showed the slowest rates of population growth in decades for both countries, also point to hard-to-fathom adjustments.

    The strain of longer lives and low fertility, leading to fewer workers and more retirees, threatens to upend how societies are organized — around the notion that a surplus of young people will drive economies and help pay for the old. It may also require a reconceptualization of family and nation. Imagine entire regions where everyone is 70 or older. Imagine governments laying out huge bonuses for immigrants and mothers with lots of children. Imagine a gig economy filled with grandparents and Super Bowl ads promoting procreation....

    Back in 2019 I wrote an article titled “Things Are Only Going To Get Weirder”, and from Covid to the 2020 election to the steadily increasing regularity with which UFOs are now mentioned in the mainstream media, that has indeed proved to be the case.

    Our ongoing slide into the abyss of infinite weirdness may have eclipsed this from your memory by now, but there was once a time not too long ago when frequent mainstream news stories about the possibility of extraterrestrial aircraft in our skies would not have sounded like something from real life. Lately it’s been a daily occurrence, and the president of the United States is now being asked about it at news conferences.....

    ...I’m not interested in being one more person on the internet claiming to know exactly what’s going on with all this, but I do know there’s an exactly zero percent chance that all this is coming out into the mainstream spotlight because the US war machine suddenly decided that the public has a right to know about a potentially dangerous security threat. The Pentagon did not spontaneously evolve an interest in radical transparency, and it is not coincidental that this is happening as we hurtle into a new multi-front cold war and an accompanying race to weaponize space.

    As I’ve said before, the simplest and most likely explanation for all this UFO stuff is that the US military is manipulating us yet again to advance yet another strategic agenda. I’m not saying that’s necessarily the full story, but it’s definitely happening.

    Again, there is a high-profile Senate report on this subject due next month, so we can expect the weird to get even weirder quite soon. This is happening as narrative manipulation gets even more ham-fisted and overt, with the empire having now graduated from just imprisoning inconvenient journalists to literally bombing inconvenient journalism offices.

    The only prediction I’ll make out of all this mess is the same one I’ve been making: that things are going to keep getting weirder and weirder. Patterns are unpatterning, power structures are struggling to retain their foothold, humanity’s relationship with narrative is radically transforming, and we are not just plunging into the unknown but actively flooring the accelerator into it.

    from tinfoil hat nutjob to 60 minutes

    Tom-

    The UFO thing definitely seems like some sort of managed transition.

    Another Defense/Industrial scam to make more money?  "OMG - Aliens!"

    A distraction from the Pharma-sociopathic "No Treatments For You"?  - "Look!  Aliens!"

    A steady increase in UFO sightings that - projected forward - has the little grey men landing on the White House Lawn in about six weeks?  "Aliens Love Old White Joe!"

    My guess: I do not think the Oligarchy would admit to an external force in being unless it was forced to do so.  My assumption is this external force has always been present, and the Oligarchy has gone to extraordinary lengths to keep it the stuff of "nutjob tinfoil hat conspiracy" people, the better to keep control over the population.  So why change the time-honored formula now?

    My sense is: they have no choice.  Not sure why.  Perhaps this is "externally driven."  So The Oligarchy are attempting to do this on their own schedule, in an attempt to limit damage.  With lots of telegraphing.  To maintain control.

    It takes a bit of time (about six months?) for Oligarchy Media to transition from "UFOs are conspiracy theory tinfoil hat nutjob material" into "science-followers have ALWAYS known UFOs were real.  What are you, some sort of conspiracy theory nutjob?"

    I guarantee that's where we'll be in about three months from now.  Don Lemon will be telling us all that "well duh we've known about this for decades now."

    I mean - the other option: this is an attempt to maximize cognitive dissonance in the CNN-viewing population.

    prior to april-2020: Masks are stupid - COVID is racism.  UFOs don't exist.

    april-2020: MUST WEAR MASKS!  COVID WILL KILL YOU.  UFOs?  Huh?

    may-2020: No need to wear masks.  Vaccines fix everything.  And oh by the way, UFOs are real.

    I think - for some reason - they have no choice.

    Steven Greer thinks this will be used to lock in greater tyranny

    Steven Greer is a bigger than life personality for sure.  But he follows this field and has become an insider to some of the discussions.  He thinks that they are going to do their best to have "disclosure" serve secrecy and tyranny.

    With what we know about their motivations and methods, this seems likely to me.

    Don't let someone tell you what is real and what is not real or why something is so.

    Greer is a Poisoned Well

    I could go on at length in private messages, but he’s a charlatan. Is he still selling Ambassador to the Universe training? Learn how to contact aliens (CE5) with Ayurvedic rituals.....

    Steven Greer is telling you the truth this time. He’s known what the real story was all along.

    Sounds more like a nomination for the Darwin awards ...

    I'd say an instantaneous 15 MW dump of energy into a storage system is a very worthy contender for this year's Darwin Awards.

    Or, at least, an honorable mention in the AhSHIT ( Archival History of Stupid Human Incredible Tricks ) which is a non-existent but highly-respected and authoritative source of all information related to the truly stupid things that otherwise sentient beings can do.

    Releasing untested RNA delivery systems with virtually no knowledge of long-term implications, en masse, on an unsuspecting population probably falls into this same category.

    Dumping 15MW  could be done with a bang and a flash.

    Yup. A Bang and a Flash.  Right.  It sure could !
    There are actually grenades that do the very same thing !!!
    And, they're probably cheaper than Supercapacitors are.

    Personally, I think I'll stick with a few amps of charging current and wait for however long I need to.  Patience is a virtue, sometimes.
    But that's just me.  If you decide to try it, please write me into your will, first.
