Gonna have to start going with local credit unions. And honestly just start keeping cash in the house. Sad we’ve let these people get power over every institution in this country.

We're all gonna have to do things a lot more drastic than switching to credit unions pretty soon.

I'm not sure what these morons are thinking by trying to politically suppress half the population. Censorship, de-platforming, financial shunning... it's just going to make half the people desperate.

They are pushing the pendulum further and further, and it's getting heavier and heavier, and eventually they won't be able to hold it anymore.

History will yet again repeat itself.

I think the civil war is what they're going for. Seems pretty clear at this point.

I hate to say this because it sounds like pussy talk, but our lack of response has almost been frustrating for them. Their narrative of "extremists" looks weird now. You can see them going through the motions they had already prepared.

I agree. They made the mistake of thinking that we think like them though. Leftists are shockingly easy to rile to violence. I think it's because most of their motivation has nothing to do with logic and everything to do with emotions.

I think the FBI wanted a civil war to start in January. I think that was the plan. I think the Wuhan Virus and painfully obvious election fraud as well as the BLM theater was all meant to break society. I think this originates in the CCP, and I think it's CCP money behind all of it, at the root, and that the FBI is either wittingly or unwittingly doing the work of the CCP. They are such weak minded and unprincipled fools that they follow clearly unconstitutional and unethical leadership down policy paths that are clearly partisan... without a peep.

There's not even a pretense of objective desire to serve the people in that bureau. They do not have the rule of law in mind, they do not have the good of the people in mind, they do not even have the stability of the government that they are a part of in mind.

I'm tying to coalesce all these thoughts a little tighter, but their actions really boil down to betrayal, political coup, and treason. I don't see a way to explain around it.

We need lawyers, judges, and US Marshals. The FBI beast is going to be a tricky one to catch and dismantle.

Leftists are also poor because of the college debt and economic policies that the left establishment promotes.

They have nothing to lose by design, then support the people who designed their poverty.

True. As the actual leaders of this country laid out in its foundation, we will have to begin to put our minds to that problem for sure.

Hopefully some already have, but we can't rely on whispers.

I am encouraged that the Judicial branch of our country is not ENTIRELY rotted out. I think if it were we would be done by now.

I've been wondering lately how much of what's going on is planned destruction set out by power hungry elites to grab more power for themselves vs crazy ideologues let loose and destroying without plan or purpose because that's all their ideology is capable of.

I've been listening to a ton of James Lindsey's New Discourses podcast lately, and as I've begun to understand the foundations of their beliefs it really leads me scratching my head.

The idea of the cultural Marxists and neo-Marxists was to infiltrate culture (as we'be witnessed happening) and to agitate towards revolution to bring about the communist utopia (rebranded as "liberation").

So the foundations of the belief system we see operating explicitly had the goal of infiltrating the pillars of culture to subvert and destroy society as we know it.

I guess my question is how much of this is evil rich people planning out how they'll gain power for themselves, and how much of it is due to an activist class run amok with an ideology that demands action, and is incapable of anything but tearing down. Then there's the question of how much of it is a combination where the evil rich capitalize on what the activists are doing or agitate them into doing something.

I think BLM proves it's an unholy mixture of the two. Clearly there is a large population of activists/opportunists that are constantly on the verge of rioting. The "rioting" class clearly doesn't have any ultimate goal. They riot because they truly believe they're fighting for social justice, or because they want to loot.

But the fact that the riots only seem to happen during times of political convenience to the Democrats indicates that are people pulling the strings.

So how much of what we see is to further some set goal that's been laid out, and how much is it just people who only know how to destroy doing the only thing they know how to do?

I don't have any sort of answer. My hope is that it's more of the later than the former, but I have no basis for that hope.

It just seems to me unlikely that a few people can effectively plan events on a global scale. And I do understand that they try (see Big Rona). To me, the more likely explanation is that they agitate in certain directions and then capitalize on whatever mayhem is wrought.

By creating a large enough “extremist” uprising, they get to declare the insurrection act and even martial law. A standard ploy in the socialist/communist playbook for global domination. It has been used in third world countries in the past, but now, they feel strong enough to take on the USA using the same tactics.

They are easy to rile to violence because they have lived their lives to this point entirely free of consequences. They were never spanked as children, they've never been punched in the face in a schoolyard fight, and they have no idea what an actual insurrection looks like.

It has always been real and it has always been coming. Ever since The Assumption it has been real and coming. That doesn't mean we're going to see it happen.

I agree with you but I'm not an "imminent doomsday" prophesier. Besides, there will be a lot of other things happen first.

You ever read about the "three days of darkness" prophecies? Pretty interesting stuff. Russia was never consecrated to the Immaculate Heart by JPII, so Russia's errors (Communism) are running rampant. Even though Russia itself settled into a kind of stable corrupt oligarchy, the poison is in the world now.

We DO know that this world isn't for us, and we are not for this world. I don't see how God can forgive or bless our culture when it's so debased and demonically oppressed, willingly so by its participants.

Have heart though, Our Lord won. The victory is already achieved, we just have to keep the faith.

Monero is the most distributed thanks to RandomX.

You can't mine it with ASICs / GPUs efficiently so no blockchink farms.

Sargentpilcher 1 point ago +1 / -0

Geographical location is irrelevant. That doesn't mean that china could print infinite bitcoin, or censor transactions, or steal anybody's bitcoin (Except those within the orders of china). It means they can effect the hashing rate of bitcoin, which at worst would be a temporary setback where transactions are slower and fees rise for a period.

That being said, if you don't feel comfortable with bitcoin, there are PLENTY of promising projects. Ethereum is fantastic, and a "safer" bet than some of the newer coins that use Proof of Stake instead of Proof of Work (I'm happy to elaborate on what these mean if you're interested) like Tezos, and Cardano. My personal favorite, which is still experimental is called Iota which is the only coin breaking everything down to first principles and trying to create the best DLT (Distrubted ledger technology) possible and created their own tech which isn't a blockchain at all, but a DAG (Directed acyclic graph).

There's a LOT of promising tech out there, with no shortage of interesting projects. One of the most innovative fields in the world right now.

Sargentpilcher 1 point ago +1 / -0

No problem man, I'm a HUGE fan of crypto currency's. I was a Bernie supported in 2016, and I joined the Trump train out of spite, and I saw a post on r/thedonald with a guy holding a sign saying "buy bitcoin" behind Janet Yellen, and I fell down a rabbit hole. I LOVE crypto currency, and I'm happy to elaborate on anything or answer any questions you have on it. I know it can be intimidating.

Anyways, the concept of Proof of Work is known in crypto land as "sybil protection". I don't know the etymology behind the word, but what it means is that you are dedicating a scarce resource to the network in order to make it more difficult for an attacker to gain control of it. Essentially, if you control 51% or more of the network for a long enough period of time, you can theoretically gain control of it. This is a simplification, and isn't that simple in reality.

In the "Proof of work" method of sybil protection, the scarce resource dedicated to securing the network is electricity, in the form of computation on a CPU (These days by "application specific integrated circuits", or ASICs which is hardware dedicated to running a single function), which is where all the Chinese miners come into play.

In the "Proof of stake" method of sybil protection, the scarce resource is units of the cryptocurrency on the network, and in order to run a node, you must stake coins onto it. In order to get a 51% attack on a Proof of Stake network, you would need to own a significant amount of the supply, or achieving cooperation between 51% of the network to attack it.

IMO, the number 1 problem to be solved in blockchain, is scalability. Fees can get rather insane based on a simple supply and demand curve, and Proof of Stake is a much cheaper method of doing transactions, with a cheaper method of security.

Anyways, I'm happy to go on, or elaborate on anything. The rabbit hole goes much deeper.

1
NimbleNomad9 1 point ago +1 / -0

That's a great breakdown. So would you say people are moving to proof of stake rather than work?

Do you happen to have sites/resources I could research? I don't want to take up too much of your time.

I mainly want to get away from RH/Coinbase and have a few secure wallets with a random assortment of coins saved up.

1
Sargentpilcher 1 point ago +1 / -0

I honestly don't mind, you can't get me to shut up about this stuff lol. I'm the "Do you have any bitcoin?" guy at parties (If there still were parties).

I don't have a specific resource for you, as everything ive learned has been from a variety of places over 4 years, but one GREAT resource is Andreas Aantonopolous videos on youtube. He's REALLY good.

I agree with you completely about getting away from Robinhood/Coinbase. I personally prefer Gemini, as I really like the Winklevoss twins who run it. And while I don't like their Chinese influence, I mainly use Binance because my favorite coin (Iota) isn't available on anything but Binance (For now).

As far as "Are people moving to proof of stake over Proof of work" the answer is yes, and no. In the case of Ethereum, it's definitely yes, as their next upgrade they're aiming for that is constantly delayed dubbed Ethereum 2.0 is going to be switching from proof of work, to proof of stake for its greater energy efficiency. I don't think bitcoin will be switching anything in the foreseeable future.

In blockchain, there is what's known as the blockchain trilemma. There are 3 feature sets, and blockchains can only choose 2 of the 3.

  1. Security

  2. Decentralization

  3. Scalability

Bitcoin can only process something like 7 transactions per second (On average). Ethereum does double that at 14. The leading proof of stake coin Cardano can do about 50, which is almost an order of magnitude above bitcoin, it isn't even close to satisfying what the potential demand could be. VISA for example does thousands per second at peak, during Christmas shopping for example.

An alternate method of scaling is called a "Layer 2" solution, which adds a significant amount of complexity for the user, but many people believe it's the only way. Bitcoin for example has the lightning network. Ethereum and Cardano are both working on their own layer 2 solution. They aren't exactly user friendly, but lightning is slowly gaining adoption.

The reason I've personally picked iota, and gone all in on it (I'm not necessarily trying to convince you to do the same), is because they have taken the approach of breaking everything down to first principles and creating the best possible DLT they can. They CLAIM to have solved the blockchain trilemma, but not using a blockchain at all. They are a Directed Acyclic Graph, and created their own system which they've dubbed the "Tangle". If you look at their visualizer, you'll see why. https://explorer.iota.org/mainnet/visualizer/

The thing that sets Iota apart, is not only are they going to be able to scale to what they claim to be 1,000 TPS, but transactions are free. Well, let me elaborate on "free". A fundamental truth of economics, is all resources are finite, but all human desires are infinite. The way we prioritize infininite demand with finite resources is Called the price system. Bitcoin has a finite transaction capacity, so a fee market arises for transaction capacity. There could theoretically eventually be fees on Iota, for people who don't own Iota.

Remember in my last post I was talking about Sybil protection? Iota came up with a REALLY clever method of sybil protection which they call "Mana". Essentially, any Iota you own, generates a secondary resource called Mana, which is your share of network transaction capacity. By owning Iota tokens, it grants you access to the network for free. No transaction fees. How many transactions you can make, is based upon how many tokens you own.

There are plenty of caveats, and Iota doesn't "work" yet, in that they are currently centralized, and aiming to be centralized by the end of the year (Will probably be delayed). They had a wallet hack a couple years ago, so a lot of people are still soured on them.

There's thousands of coins, with various use cases. There's coins that are aiming to be a foundational scarce resource (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin), where scarcity is their only use case. There's smart contract platforms like Ethereum which took the concept of scarcity, and gave it another layer, where you can run smart contracts on top of it which enables lots of interesting use cases. DeFi is a big thing right now, so most of the DeFi coins are built on top of Ethereum, but will likely move to lower fee networks over time (It's something like 150$ to "call" a smart contract right now. So on Uniswap for example, which is a decentralized exchange built on top of ethereum, it costs 150$ to make a transaction on Uniswap, because it lives as a smart contract on ethereum.)

There's so much happening in this space. One of the most innovative spaces there is TBH. Separation of currency and state has given rise to some amazing things.

I could go on for hours! lol

The Credit Union Co-op easily gives people the feeling of having nationwide banking through shared branching/ATM access between participating credit unions as opposed to using one mega bank and relying solely on that institution’s own nationwide ATM network.

NO_RINOs 3 points ago +3 / -0

You will not regret making the switch!

I recommend starting with a local one first, for the safe deposit box etc. Another criterion: do they participate in the credit union co-op? Credit unions that participate in the credit union co-op function as a sort of nationwide Federation by sharing branch access an ATM access. That way if you bank at one of the participating credit unions, you’re affectively getting nationwide branch access like you would with one of the mega banks. Some like having Zelle, but bankers started that, I wish CUs would fund their own platform instead.

CUs have fewer fees than banks, but every CU is different in terms of perks they offers and what you must give up in return.

Look for 3%+ interest on CUs offering deposit accounts with nationwide signup. Look at depositaccounts.com for regular savings and rewards checking accounts. The transactions are easy to do at a gas station by pumping tiny amounts of gas once a month several times. Remember, it's per primary member's SSN. So if you're married, your spouse can sign up for one of these accounts on their own, with you as a joint account owner while you do the same for them!

Lol where'd you go to school? I'd suggest you do some more research, but a free lesson is provided below.

Buying hard assets may be worthwhile, but that's not advice I'd give. I assume you are suggesting metals. They maintain value during inflation, and explode under high inflation. Solid hedge, depending on expectations in level of inflation.. I'd recommend crypto before metal. It's not 1970-80 anymore.

BUT holding stock during high inflationary periods is some of the worst advice I've seen given. High inflation kills stock value. Why? Because everything to run the business now costs more while revenue is stagnant or likely decreasing.

Personally, Ive divested from the stock market roughly two weeks ago, majority of investment accounts are in fixed income(TIPS)/money market. I'd highly recommend this move, looking at the M2 supply. Plus the Fed's lax policy towards inflation.

Holding cash is a sound inflationary move. Ever heard of "Cash is King"?

I suppose it depends how hard and quick you expect inflation to hit... If you are expecting low inflation stocks could compete but in a high inflationary periods they massively underperform

Money held is money wasted. I leverage my income and credit to buy tangible assets.

Homes and other real estate. Vacant properties as well as rental homes.

I've bought and sold 5 homes and half a dozen plots of land over the last few years.

Currently have 2 rentals and am building my new "for me" home soon.

Each home is typically $300k+ in value and so long as they are rented for 1 year with another years worth of lease signed the banks count them as income rather than expense and they do not impact my ability to take out another loan for another home.

Buy 1 house a year basically and Amy random acreage I come across I think will hold it's value.

I don't know what her entire financial situation is, but I feel confident that she has not been working for her entire 33 years on the earth. You can still think she should have saved more, but it probably has not been over a span of 33 yrs. Also a balanced checkbook does not equal savings, it just means you're not overdrafting, so I imagine it's balanced if she has any savings at all.

Regardless, I can't imagine they have a legitimate reason to close her bank account.
