A global security threat: Meet The Worlds Most Powerful Bitcoin Backers. 🌏Must Read

Meet The World’s Most Powerful Bitcoin Backers


Cryptocurrency may be one of the biggest threats to governments, security and the entire financial system that we’ve ever seen.
It can help fund terrorism and its anonymity makes it almost impossible to track.
Most importantly, it is poised to revolutionize global finance and banking.

But our new Enemy No. 1 can’t be fought; it can perhaps be controlled. Banks have figured that out and are bringing crypto currency into the fold.

The superpowers—U.S., China and Russia--will have to face the new reality. They love to hate it and hate to love it. Regardless, if they don’t embrace it, they won’t be able to control it.
An enemy you don’t control is a much bigger threat.

So, welcome to the new balance of power, funded by cryptocurrency.

SNIP

The Period of Uncertainty is Over

Russia is embracing it, with an eye to dominating it. China has banned it. The U.S. is struggling to figure out how to regulate it. But nothing can hold it back.

And now, many believe the uncertainty is over.

SNIP

Threats and Opportunities

The potential security threats are clear and present, but let’s put things like new avenues of terrorism funding into perspective.

At this point, terrorist groups are certainly eyeing their options with cryptocurrency, and testing the waters. In January, we saw what appears to be the first case, with the Indonesian government claiming that members of the Islamic State were transferring Bitcoin to each other.

Terrorists could create a virtual currency that is even more powerful and untraceable—one that can completely bypass the global banking system. It hasn’t happened yet, but the potential is there.

While terrorism is a threat to the security of all states, another threat to the U.S. is an opportunity for Russia: sanctions busting.

The rise of digital currency means that Russian officials sanctioned by the U.S. and the European Union have a way to send and receive money.


While the U.S. Treasury’s Terrorism and Financial Intelligence unit puts sanctioned individuals on a blacklist that keeps them from doing any business in U.S. dollars, cryptocurrency, which isn’t backed or controlled by any state, makes it possible to bypass the blacklist.

But even this pales in comparison to the bigger story here:
Bitcoin and its fellow cryptocurrencies are challenging the foundations of the global banking system.

Disruption of the global banking system at this point is “inevitable”



The Crypto ‘Embrace’ is All About Control

SNIP


But Russia, for one, is much more motivated. Cryptocurrency is a great way to skirt sanctions.

“The U.S. is rightfully concerned about cryptocurrencies, but like anything that may have a negative impact on national security, there are way too many stakeholders that need to be brought to the table to discuss, so the U.S. is not capable of acting quickly,” Dr. Makarenko told Oilprice.com.

“The right conversations are taking place, but at the end of the day, it is in the U.S. interest to secure the value of the global position of the dollar.”

So, while China is banning cryptocurrency and the U.S. is still trying to figure things out, Russia seeks to dominate.

My concern with Bitcoin is how it was used by Russia in the 2016 election, to buy favors while hiding how those favors were rewarded.

Good Read as to why Russia wants to dominate this market. They move globally, unregulated & outside of sanctions.


Manafort has been paid to pitch Russian nuclear technology for nearly two DECADES

BOOM: Manafort has been paid to pitch Russian nuclear technology for nearly two DECADES.

So, ultimately, this is all about a power grab of, well power (energy). A coordinated Russo-China-Turkey-MidEast infrastructure. Rosatom, Rosneft, all coming together.

That’s right! Which required the end of NATO to pull off. So everyone involved is a traitor. Correct!

Florida lawmaker's former company used Manafort to pitch Russian-developed technology to U.S. government

TALLAHASSEE — Paul Manafort’s Russian ties have cast a broad shadow over a Trump administration under investigation, but the longtime Republican powerbroker also has a little-known connection to a Florida politician that also runs, in part, through Russia.


Florida House freshman Don Hahnfeldt
ran a company in the early 2000s that hired Manafort — President Donald Trump’s former campaign chief who was recently indicted — to try to sell Russian-developed nuclear containment foam to the U.S. Energy Department. At one point, a Manafort-directed company bought more than 2 million shares of company

Manafort Bankers, Associates Summoned to Talk to Manhattan D.A

November 28, 2017, 4:00 AM EST
**,Investigators want to know how Manafort used money from loans
**Ex-Trump campaign chairman already charged in separate probe

Manhattan prosecutors investigating Paul Manafort’s New York business activities are scheduling interviews with 10 to 20 of his work associates and lenders, including Stephen Calk, whose Chicago-based bank provided millions of dollars in loans on Manafort family properties.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office has already subpoenaed lenders for documents related to transactions by Manafort, President Donald Trump’s onetime campaign chairman, and is proceeding to conduct the interviews, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

Separately, the Manhattan U.S. attorney has recently looked into Calk’s bank as part of a probe into whether Manafort may have engaged in mortgage fraud, honest-services fraud and bank fraud, according to another person familiar with that investigation.
Manafort is already under federal indictment for money laundering and other charges.


The district attorney’s office wants to know how deeply Calk was involved in loans made by Federal Savings Bank, where he is chief executive officer, for Manafort’s benefit, ..More at Link

If @KeithOlbermann says to follow @ddale8, I wonder if the Toronto Star has an update to this dumpster fire of fraud and treason, starring Trump

Trump CANNOT pardon Canadian #moneylaundering charges!

Whole family exposed & any state could honor the warrant & extradite him.

How every investor lost money on Trump Tower Toronto (but Donald Trump made millions anyway)
Donald Trump called himself a “genius” for investing in Toronto’s Trump Tower. Behind the scenes, he had no money on the line. The inside story of an unlikely bankruptcy, and the investors who lost everything when they bet on the Trump brand.

Way back in 2015, @Project_Veritas got a $10K. donation from @realDonaldTrump's charity, after pitching Trump on their work.

Veritas is listed as receiving two separate $10k donations from the Trump Foundation on that 2015 form
