Ms. P.H., whom readers here know to be a regular contributor of articles, found this one, and it's so bizarre, and tends to confirm in an even more bizarre way, some of the ideas and speculations I've been adancing over the past few years about space, hidden systems of finance, and breakaway civilization and technology. In fact, this is one of those articles that I had to file away for a spell in my "think about it" folder (yes I actually have a "think about it" folder). Well, I'm not done thinking, but like a small pebble in one's shoe, this one is annoying and irritating, and I have to talk about it. I may end up talking about it again, but for now I have to stop thinking, take my shoe off, and remove the pebble. In short, I to talk about this. And I'm sure that, once one sees the title of this article, one will see why it's been one of those "stone in the shoe" articles:

The Air Force Might Have To Protect Money Laundering in Space

Now... did you catch the implications of those opening statements? Indeed, these were the statements that were the stone in my shoe, so to speak, and I found them to be an irritable confirmation of ideas I've been advancing, along with former HUD Assistant Secretary Catherine Austin Fitts. Indeed, when I first advanced this idea some years ago on the recently deceased George Ann Hughes' The Byte Show, I thought I was the only one thinking what I was thinking, and I was reluctant even to talk about it on George Ann's show, until she persuaded me. But when I heard Secretary Fitts saying and thinking almost exactly the same think some time later, I began to wonder. So here's the irritating stone-in-the shoe that this article posed(and poses):

"If you’re looking for the ultimate in physical security for your future assets, look up, way up. Growing fears about cybersecurity and the rapidly decreasing cost to access space has given birth to a new class of startups offering satellite-based data centers impervious to all physical hacking. What sort of information is so valuable that the average person needs to protect them in space? One answer: money. Even space vaults need guards, and in this case the brunt of that job will go to U.S. Air Force.

"But putting digital money into space-based data centers not only puts it out of reach from thieves, it’s also out of jurisdiction from law enforcement. In other words, the Air Force could one day soon be on the hook to protect a hive of money laundering in space."

Now, I don't know the author of this article, Mr Patrick Tucker, from Adam, and I highly doubt that he ever heard my wild and woolly "high octane speculation" about money leaving the planet altogether, nor Secretary Fitt's variation on the idea. That said, you'll note that what he has said, boiled down to its essential abstracted "quintessence", is the following:

  1. Money, since so much of it now exists in the form of electronic data, can now move off planet, and be vouchsafed in satellites;
  2. part of moving money of the planet in this fashion, might be in the form of sophisticated money laundering operations; and finally,
  3. the military would inevitably be drawn into protecting such "orbital vaults" and hence may unwittingly(of course! or as I would prefer, perhaps "wittingly") be protecting such operations.

Years ago, when I first began exploring the possibility of a "hidden system of finance" in conjunction with Mr. Richard Dolan's idea of a "breakaway civilization," and in conjunction with the idea of a decades' long black projects development of secret technologies (from weaponry, to propulsion, medicine, bioengineering, materials science, and even, if I may be permitted the term, "psychophysics"), I realized that such an idea meant that any conventional financial or economic modeling which did not factor the existsence of such a system into its analyses was doomed to be a highly flawed analysis. This was born home during the 2008 bailouts, and the "quantitative easing" which followed it, when financial analysts began predicting hyperinflation was just around the corner. I recall similar predictions from the Reagan administration era. It did not show up, and still hasn't. So like an electrical engineer confronted by power going in at one end of the circuit, but not appearing in sufficient amounts at the load end, I came to the conclusion that the "juice" or money was being bled off, and going somewhere else, and that one possibility may have been space, either in the form of tribute(Ms. Fitts' idea), or trade.

The idea may not be as wild and wooly as it sounds. After all, if we can trade bits of information that are exchanged electronically as money, chances are, another more advanced civilization might do so as well. Granted, they might be so advanced as to view our "electronic blips" as being about as avdanced as having to carry around sacks of coins before the rise of the widespread use of paper money. But different types of money have always circulated at the same time, as it does now.

But in any case, the article does advance the notion that money, rather than being transferred or cleared via space based assets, might be stored there. In other words, it might simply be moved off world. And he has raised yet another fascinating possibility, that this activity would the the ultimate way, the most sophisticated way for those with the pwoer, influence, and technological expertise to do so, to launder money. And of course, hiding your assets in satellites (or elsewhere), is the perfect way to have a hidden system of finance.

In other words, perhaps we're once again being "prepared for a future" that already exists, and perhaps this article could be taken as confirmation - at least in a general way - that the idea of all that liquidity, which should have shown up as hyperinflation long ago, hasn't, because the load end of the circuit is no longer on this planet at all. And that raises all sorts of other "high octane" possibilities. Of course, there's lots more to ponder in this article, which is why it's going into one of my permanent archive folders.

And of course, there's one final possibility that the article suggests, and that is, the data that can be stored in satellites, can also be stored on space probes on, say, the surface of the Moon, or Mars... if someone needed, perhaps, to make a withdrawal at one of those "branch banks"...

See you on the flip side...

    Dean Henderson writes…The Federal Reserve Cartel: Part I: The Eight Families
    Posted on 04/30/2015 | 13 Comments
    (Excerpted from Chapter 19: The Eight Families: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

    The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP Amoco and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch.

    According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation. [1]

    So who then are the stockholders in these money center banks?

    This information is guarded much more closely. My queries to bank regulatory agencies regarding stock ownership in the top 25 US bank holding companies were given Freedom of Information Act status, before being denied on “national security” grounds. This is rather ironic, since many of the bank’s stockholders reside in Europe.

    One important repository for the wealth of the global oligarchy that owns these bank holding companies is US Trust Corporation – founded in 1853 and now owned by Bank of America. A recent US Trust Corporate Director and Honorary Trustee was Walter Rothschild. Other directors included Daniel Davison of JP Morgan Chase, Richard Tucker of Exxon Mobil, Daniel Roberts of Citigroup and Marshall Schwartz of Morgan Stanley. [2]

    And in Alex Christophers book: Research for this fascinating book meant traveling around to state, county and federal courthouses all over the United States where documents were filed and taking great risks to uncover the hidden secrets that are in plain view for the public. It uncovers data that has been suppressed for over 150 years, and illustrates the real truth, backed by legal documents, of the hidden trusts and corporate owners, the family for whom J.P. Morgan and the Rockefellers were the front men for, and it was not the Rothschilds. the true origins of the CIA, who the hidden owners of one half of the United States are, the true issue of private land ownership, links to Old World money and family blood lines that trace back thousands of years.

    The book details how Edison, Tesla and Westinghouse were involved, the aspects of this hidden history that are behind the current withdrawal of freedoms and the decimation of the world population, who really owns and controls your land, information on foreign military equipment in the united States, information on advanced technology being used on and against the world population. Find out who the one family is that truly owns the entire wealth of the United States – since over 364 of the Fortune 500 were originally found by this family, find out who has stolen and embezzled it away, despite ownership documents.
    Incredible tie-ins to the alien problem, defense industrial complexes agenda. The ones that don’t want the truth out seized this book in the summer of 1994 in an effort to stop its publication, it has now been totally reworked, updated and revised with even more information than the original book. And don’t forget how they got it, all by fraud, theft, and deceit…

    Very interesting. Maybe that future already does exist. It’s certainly be considered. A couple of years ago there was a joint project between PayPal and SETI to set up a system called PayPal Galactic for commercial and private space-based transactions. While mostly planned to serve the tourist industry, could it also be used for money laundering operations … there are no laws in space governing digital financial transactions … yet. There hasn’t been anymore publicity about it, at least that I can find. Here’s the original article: Cosmic Currency: PayPal and SETI Developing Space Cash System

    I’m beginning to have my doubts about a hidden system of finance.

    I mean, let’s look at what we can in fact see: the Fed simply pulls money out of thin air, endebts the Treasury, and poof! Money is made. Rinse and repeat down the line; all commercial banks also do what central banks do in this Cabalistic/parasitic/bankster Ponzi scheme.

    Also, the CIA and other alphabet agencies are drug wholesalers, arms-dealers, bribe-takers and money-launderers, and have quite a hefty income stream just from these “activities” alone.

    I am sure a vast amount of loot and plunder was socked away during WWII, but I think more to the point, the alphabet agencies — CIA, NSA, and certain arms of the Pentagram — have simply set up shop as banks, and perhaps even as central banks (whatever that is, beyond criminal extortion and fraud) and are creating their own money to fill their own budgets.

    At this point, how hard can it be, really? “Money” is literally willed from nothing, a conjuring trick of the Cabal’s initiates, so what is to say that another trillion here or there isn’t simply being digitized in Utah or Langley or Colorado?

    I think money as a concept has been murdered by the whole Rothschild debt=currency scam and right now pretty much anyone who has clout is making their own. Who’s to stop them? Some other branch of the same criminal enterprise? I think not.

    Welcome to the “Marvin the Martian” bank, and your password is “take me to your leader”. This idea has all sorts of worts, imagine having all that loot up there, and that “somebody” is the caretaker, maybe a little honey on the fingers possibly!!!

    Orbiting data centers eh……and they will be susceptible to damage from cosmic and solar radiation….. Not a safe place unless they are very heavily shielded of course.

    But if you want to militarise near earth space, its a good way of justifying it.

  9. Aridzonan_13 on April 25, 2015 at 9:30 am

    Electronic records can be as safe on Earth as in space. Unless, something is going to happen to the Earth. People and corporations that want to keep their stuff safe have built their own dark nets and hidden them. These dark nets are not attached to the Internet in any fashion. Data is delivered via thumb drives etc. As for jurisdiction, what LEA is going to successfully subpoena Chyenne Mnt, Ft Huachuca, Edwards AFB?? Answer is “0”. If I was a preferred FedGov.Inc member and I wanted to hide something. I’d just co-locate it on a nuke base and it might as well be on the moon. My obtuse point is, off world locations may not be in harms way. Question is, what harm?

  10. marcos toledo on April 25, 2015 at 8:21 am

    This just means the US military will become more like the enforcers of the Mafia. Just wondering what these global criminals will do when their house of cards falls on their heads. There won’t be any difference between a solider of the US and the underworld welcome to the world of Killer Kane.

    “But putting digital money into space-based data centers not only puts it out of reach from thieves, it’s also out of jurisdiction from law enforcement”

    This also does not hold water (imho). You do not have to be physically present at a computer to simply block it from the rest of the internet, if you know “where” it is. I’m sure satellites will have something similar to MAC and ip addresses if they connect to the planetside internet. If those are known, all communication could easily be blocked by law enforcement.

    Again, I am not arguing against the main idea of the article, just that this idea does not seem trustworthy.

  12. bdw000 on April 25, 2015 at 6:45 am

    “…impervious to all physical hacking.”

    I am not arguing against the main points of the article or what JPF has said here. But, “physical” hacking sounds like misdirection of some sort. I am no expert, but isn’t the whole idea of hacking pretty much NON-physical? Most of the time it does not involve being physically present at the computer you are “hacking.” That’s the beauty of it: you can be anywhere in the world, and find a way to hijack a computer with just your own keyboard and mouse.

    All I’m saying is that the idea of security against “physical” hacking does not sound right. I don’ty buy it.

    • moxie on April 25, 2015 at 4:43 pm

      “…the fundamental Uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics itself, which states that one cannot measure the position and velocity of an electron at one and the same time. Thus, an experimenter determines the result of an observation or measurement prior to performing the experiment itself, and to that extent, has a hand in determining reality.”

      “The other thing that will have them worrying is the encryption potentials of quantum computing, for as a bit of reflection will reveal, it holds the promise of security of communications that would make today’s standards quickly obsolete.”

      In this case (today’s blog topic), the breakaways have “the hand”..

    The article is discussing one particular form of money – Bitcoin. Not all money is created equal.
