BLOCKCHAIN AND NUKES: A DISTURBING POSSIBILITY

Sometimes a story that one of our readers comes across is so mind-boggling that I just have to blog about it, but sometimes those stories are so bloated with disturbing implications that I hesitate to do so. This story, shared by M.D. (thank you!) is one of those cases.

In brief, the US Department of Defense and DARPA (which, thanks to a suggestion of one of our members, J.B., we like to call the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency), are considering using blockchain technology to control America's nuclear and thermonuclear arsenal, and yes, you read that correctly:

US Defense Department Secure Nukes with Blockchain Technology

Here's the relevant paragraphs:

The digital currency technology has crossed a lot of boundaries to finally enter the realm of the Defense Department. The transparent and immutable nature of Bitcoin blockchain is now being considered by the US Department of Defense for developing tamper-proof computer systems. These computer systems may as well be used to safeguard the country’s nuclear arsenal.

...

The project has been assigned to Galois, a computer security firm to perform a code audit on defense systems using Guardtime’s blockchain based technology. Galois has received a funding of $1.8 million for this project alone.

By implementing blockchain technology, the Defense department intends to make their systems hacker-proof. Depending upon the success of Galois’ audit, the department intends to extend the use of blockchain technology into other defense applications as well.

As one might imagine, this set my high octane speculation motor racing into overdrive, so take the following extremely high octane speculation for whatever it's worth.

I needn't repeat my usual mantra - one which, incidentally, I share with former HUD Assistant Secretary Catherine Austin Fitts - that no cyber system is entirely secure, no matter what the hype may be. Right now, we're in the midst of a severe controversy about the last US federal election, and it turns out, if you've been paying attention to various stories, that some systems were not only involved in a what appears to be a clear case of election theft and fraud, but that some are also connected to wholesale hacks and penetrations into various agencies of the American federal government.  This doesn't seem like a very good time to be contemplating turning over control of nuclear weapons to a government that appears to have more cyber holes than a piece of Swiss cheese.

My concern, however, is not with all that.

We're also watching a wholesale effort on the part of Mr. Globaloney to move to "digital 'currencies'", which might well be completely digital, but which are certainly not currencies. Blockchain technology is a major component of this effort. It's ultimately a way to reduce money not even to monetized debt (the facsimile of money), but to a "corporate coupon", whose value, depending on whether or not we're all good little boys and girls, can be regulated at the point of use. So let's pretend; assume, for a moment, that there is a global "digital 'currency'" called BSes, or perhaps, SDRs, which could mean "Special Drawing Rights" or equally "Sale Dependent Reductions". You've been a bad boy or girl, and are challenging Dr. Ernst Stavr...er... Klaus Schwab's narrative, and you take your BSes or SDRs to the grocery store to buy a few items. Your account says you have x numbers of BSes or SDRs in it, but when you get to the checkout lane, you're informed that your BSes and SDRs have been reduced 20% of their "value" because of some things you told your neighbor about what you think of SPECTRE...er... uhm, the World Economic Forum. With Pope Francis' approval, your BSes have been reduced by 20% of their value, until you repent (to the proper authorities of course), confess your sins, and get the 20% restored. That does you no good, because there you are in the checkout line. You might, of course, be able to go to the ACM (Automated Confession Machine) and recoup the value, but then you've lost your place in line, plus had to pay a small fee to use the ACM. Call that fee "Peter's pence," or perhaps, "Francis' folly," whatever you wish. (The Automated Confession Machine is directly linked via Alexa to the Vatican - "Alexa, will you hear my confession"? Answer: "Why, certainly Elaine, just speak loudly and clearly; this conversation may or may not be recorded to insure quality customer service. If you need additional absolution or spiritual counsel, please press zero for a human confessor.")

You get the idea. And yea, I know it's nuts, but things are just about that bad in post-Vatican II Popedom. Just look at their "nativity" scene for this year.

All of this, of course, involved the corporations and banks running the blockchain technology behind your BSes and your ACMs.

So what's the problem? Just this: in the rush to put everything, including nukes, under blockchain technology, I'm suspecting the real effort here is not so much about making those weapons "secure", as about securing those weapons by, and for, the corporations running the technology.

Think about that for a moment.

The move, it seems to me, would give those corporations a virtual veto power over their use, and ultimately, the temptation to their use.

I don't know about you, but I do not want any corporation, or any bank, including the Vatican (which is both), to have that kind of power. Autos-de-fe were bad enough. There's no reason to make them nuclear.

See you on the flip side...

  1. As long as aliens can control our nukes as proven several times there in the tullies, then we don’t have any security anyway. Plus it’s widely known the software running those missiles is on 8 inch floppy disc.

  2. Again, an important article appeared in the forum and this is the perfect spot for it. One, it’s the latest. Two, it’s about controlling society/human; as is the “marketable” blockchain. Three, as with all their dirty deeds; it’s presented by the in-lockstep press as:
    it’s for your safety and well being.
    https://truthunmuted.org/the-internet-of-bodies/

    This has been the scripted narrative followed via Hollywood; books[fiction/nonfiction]; magazines; videos; news[LOL!]; schools; higher learning inst1tutions[LOL!]; employers; and throughout society. Like the CO2 villain; or the recent masked desperado, a flu virus – all long gamed operations.

      1. Perhaps chrome’s smile plated grill is frowning; so use different browser,
        like explorer.

        [All there info platforms are mad w/power,
        outright censoring; or, being “sly” about it.]

  3. When you’ve read about all the historical hair-raising close-calls with the MIC handling nukes, too numerous to recount but so many on the edge of Dr. Strangelove territory, this seems almost anodyne.

    And btw just what kind of globolshevik grifter network has the papacy morphed into? (Rhetorical question, no need to answer.)

  4. The future of bitcoin and their ilk. Tracking everything, permanently recording everything, penalizing behavior that is unapproved, and rewarding behavior they want. Imagine how much bitcoin the mega banks can turn out with their algorithmic super computers. Gosh, how many super computers do non-governmental and non-megacorporation entities are there out there to compete with the above? The above will dominate and control everything and everyone.

  5. “no cyber system is entirely secure, no matter what the hype may be”

    While that is true it is the level of difficulty and “time to penetrate” that are crucial. If you can slow them down and have enough layers to exhaust them you can win.

    However every layer adds in its own problems. The old IT security saying is “Nobody goes through encryption because it’s too hard. So you go around it with attacks on all the other apps and OS on the platform.

    1. Bingo…. Once the applications are placed in the cloud at a host site the code runs in a container at a host site. Because the host is in charge of the infrastructure any corporation using them now becomes hostage to their “security platforms”.

  6. Much of that code talk seems little more than the hype behind it. About as much use as trying to de-Cipher what a few AI’s came up with while using language (code) in their laboratory test facility a while back. Observers thought that the machines evolved into machine gibberish having first started with code programmers knew. Code, like language, is an arbitrary mode of communication the AI’s seem to have expanded on, on their own. The first time the test was stopped as it was thought to have reached an error. Subsequent tests, to see what would happen, . . . well, . . . not much has come out to be talked about by those not privy to the machinations of the test(s), the AI’s, or still.

    This business with blockchain this and that has a lot of moving parts to assemble. The [hash functions of hash tags] to be stored and/ or retrieved or used from some hash table into something meaningful is certainly bordering on something unique to an individual, let’s say, like assigning a hash tag to a topic or something or someone or an it. Almost as if it should resemble “Kryptos” expanded becoming an artform of proportions ad infinitum so long as its bill for existence is paid up at the end of the month or an allotment deducted from _____. . . . don’t really know what to suggest there. Those concocting this thing don’t seem to know, either. Doubt if any web snooping will yield anything for the present.

  7. In the camp of saints, majority of good nodes is good, because it good, and that is good. That is a dangerous dogma.

    Pope, the devil, misuses our goodness, and sends his Jesuit spies, like Trojan Horses, through every backdoor.

    One must think like the devil, to understand, how the devil operates. Evil seeks, to get into heart and mind, into bloodstream.

    Bill Gates needles your butterfly, into his Borgia vaccine collection.

      1. Bill Gates / MS filed a patent in March this year for a body activity based crypto whereby the server ‘tasks’ the device (you in effect) to do something like watch an ad or do some exercise and the biometric data from that is sent to the blockchain and measured against a range of values. If your bio data is consistent with these values, its hashtagged (validated) and you receive credit. If it is not, you get nothing. If MS has a crypto, I can’t see them tolerating other cryptos in the market.

        1. Your comment is illogical. Apply this to something else, and see how it holds up: “Microsoft sells a computer operating system called Windows. If Microsoft has a computer operating system, I can’t see them tolerating any other computer operating systems in the market.”

          Now compare Windows OS competing against Apple/Linux to an as-yet completely hypothetical “cryptocurrency” (highly debatable if it would fit that definition) they have patented, competing against *Bitcoin*, which over the past decade went from being nerdy garage-software to a legitimate financial asset with a half-trillion dollar market cap, now worth over $23000 per coin and being adopted by mainstream corporations as a treasury reserve asset.

          In other words, there is no comparison. There’s nothing Microsoft or Bill Gates could do to stop Bitcoin anymore than they could shut down the Internet.

          1. Ooh you’re very defensive. Its not illogical at all. Apple used to have a much bigger presence – its a much smaller player now. Look what happened to itunes. If they cant shut down the internet lol. As CAF says – MS is proprietary. Who do think is censoring everything right now ? MS/Google/Amazon – its all a piece. But hey, keep being defensive.

          2. “Ooh you’re very defensive. Its not illogical at all. Apple used to have a much bigger presence – its a much smaller player now. Look what happened to itunes. If they cant shut down the internet lol. As CAF says – MS is proprietary. Who do think is censoring everything right now ? MS/Google/Amazon – its all a piece. But hey, keep being defensive.”

            I can barely parse this paragraph, and what I do understand doesn’t come close to refuting my point that there’s nothing Microsoft (or any of the other technocrat beehives) can do to stop Bitcoin. Maybe instead of projecting your own defensiveness onto me, you could do a little of your own research.

          3. Alex, I’m not sure Kaibosch is saying these organizations want to stop bitcoin. They want to harvest it in fees. I get it that you’re fascinated with the algorithms and programming. The danger isn’t there–but in the environments in which these algorithms are contained. Code without machines is only source. It needs an ecosystem–and in a digital economy there are predators aplenty.

          4. Now I do get that he is suggestion Gates may be pushing a digital currency of his own make. I doubt he could get away with that. There are too many who despise his company already–and he does run the risk of having his wealth harvested by other countries if he tries. Gates is mad, so I won’t attempt to play in his head space. I just don’t think there is a tangible benefit for that (unless he is offering some internal credit scheme with a trading outlet. The Walmart model may be attractive to him for a variety of reasons.)

          5. “Alex, I’m not sure Kaibosch is saying these organizations want to stop bitcoin. They want to harvest it in fees. I get it that you’re fascinated with the algorithms and programming. The danger isn’t there–but in the environments in which these algorithms are contained. Code without machines is only source. It needs an ecosystem–and in a digital economy there are predators aplenty.”

            Well, I continue to come back to the analogy of Bitcoin to the Internet. BTC is the monetary protocol that will be adopted much the way TCP/IP was adopted for data transmission and SMTP was adopted for e-mail. The Internet/ARPANET was a creation of the military/DARPA, and for all its capacity to track, surveil, censor its citizens, it has undoubtedly done more to break up the MSM info monopoly and wake people out of their slumber than any other single piece of technology since, like, Fire. And yet it too has an ecosystem around it filled with predators aplenty. So it’s a double edged sword. I would have never heard of Joe Farrell without it. We wouldn’t be here having this discussion without it.

            Same applies to Bitcoin, the invention of digital scarcity, “bearer e-cash” as one person put it. It has an ecosystem around it already, growing quickly, but the important part is that the ecosystem adapts to the immutable code and hardcap of 21 million, not the other way around (as with Ethereum and every other crypto-scam which are centralized and inflatable).

            As Joe Aiello suggested up there, put the Federal budget on an immutable ledger (like Bitcoin)—there goes your FASAB 56. There goes your disappearing $trillions. If Bitcoin continues to grow and does become the world’s reserve asset settlement layer, it will change the face of governments.

            In my estimation, Bitcoin is the predator in this situation. The world’s fiat markets are the prey. As Michael Saylor has said, it’s a fire in cyberspace that cannot be put out. It is slowly eating its way through, converting the dissipating fiat energy into true digital scarcity, a “monetary network able to function without power loss,” the first of its kind. First it comes for the M1 supply ($3 trillion)—increasingly worthless fiat already being converted to BTC. Eventually it will overtake the heavily manipulated Gold in market-cap ($10 trillion). Next stop, the increasingly worthless bond market ($100 trillion) will fall to BTC, the world’s premiere store of value.

            The question none of the Bitcoiners even have the capacity to ask (which is why I like coming here—I am a conspiracy theorist after all), is, what happens when it eats its way down to the bottom of the iceberg, the black budget? 2021 and on will be VERY interesting indeed.

  8. Ok, your blockchain proponent alive and well.

    When a blockchain is created, along with it is created a blockchain explorer. With the explorer, a person can examine the transactions occurring on the blockchain. If it is not an encrypted blockchain the transactions can be followed. Companies, such as, Chainalysis can scan the blockchain and “follow the money”. This is why Cryptos, such as, Bitcoin are not good for nefarious purposes, witness the bust in South Korea a couple years ago of some kind of trafficking ring( I think). Cash is much better, which is why all the major banks are constantly being busted with huge fines for laundering money.(Nobody goes to jail).
    That being said, imagine the federal government being on a blockchain ledger, that is immutable and can be examined by anyone. There goes your FASB 56. It will be interesting to see how they fight it.

      1. Bitcoin without blockchain is omelette without eggs. File sharing Mississippi is ever changing. A paradox.

        Majority of good nodes can be compromised, by a corrupt operating system, with backdoor open. Trusting the source code, is trusting Bill Gates.

        Everyone knows, that Bill Gates is a virus.

        File sharing, as Kodi entertainment, is fun though.

    1. They’ll just use super computers to farm as many bitcoins as they need. I’m considering farming crypto currencies using homemade wind generators and cheap solar panels and homemade dual carbon batteries and super capacitor energy storage devices. Besides, with super computing I suspect bitcoin can be altered and deffinately tracked. If bitcoin doesn’t have a built in mechanism for automatic taxation and server fees it will soon go the way of the dodo. It will be replaced by those that do and I suspect those that don’t will eventually be outlawed or regulated out of existence.

  9. Is Bitcoin is actually the brainchild of the US National Security Agency?
    https://siliconangle.com/2014/08/12/did-the-nsa-create-satoshi-nakamoto/
    “One of the main pieces of evidence has to do with the name of the mysterious man, woman, or group behind the creation of Bitcoin, ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ .

    According to the CIA Project, Satoshi Nakamoto means ‘Central Intelligence’ in Japanese. Doing a quick web search, you’ll find out that Satoshi is usually a name given for baby boys which means ‘clear thinking, quick witted, wise’, while Nakamoto is a Japanese surname which means ‘central origin’ or ‘(one who lives) in the middle’… So combining Nakamoto and Satoshi can be loosely interpreted as ‘Central Intelligence’ .

    The CIA Project also points to the fact that no one has ever actually met Satoshi Nakamoto in person, and there’s no conclusive evidence that could lead to his identification.”

    It is just like über-geek Spooks to dangle a ‘clue’ – which no outsider can read – for the plebes.

    Given the above, there are probably backdoors a-plenty written into the base coding. Why would anybody use that?

    (A semi-SF extension of the above: What if an ancient AI now knows these über-secret backdoors? Including the ones into any military vehicles/ships/aircraft/warheads…)

    1. “Given the above, there are probably backdoors a-plenty written into the base coding.”

      Hundreds of the smartest independent software developers in the world have been for 10 years working on all aspects of BTC (its code is open-source & relatively simple, anyone can view & contribute if their contribution passes consensus).

      You really think this globally decentralized community of rabidly anti-central banking, anti-fiat money, anti-state libertarian-adjacent devs-on-a-crusade wouldn’t have noticed these “backdoors a-plenty” in the code in the 10 years its been running, successfully, with no backdoor attacks to speak of?

      You really think you know something they don’t?

      https://unchained-capital.com/blog/bitcoin-is-antifragile/

      1. Possibly. The moment these hit web application host environments, by which I mean AWS and Microsoft’s Web Service portals, you run tremendous risk. Anytime you surrender your own servers to host your applications on any global corporate server farms, you run the risk of losing control over your data, your code and your architecture. Compound this with a government edit that all e-commerce must run on these platforms you get a similar picture. I honestly think those environments are as secure as a boat hull made from a sieve.

        1. Talk is cheap. Your bet is worth exactly nothing in this context. Proof is what’s required – and gosh, how much money would such proof be worth at this point? To prove that Bitcoin is inherently insecure? The price would crash overnight. You should probably let Michael Saylor know – he just bought $1 billion dollars worth!

          The intel agencies (or whatever other extra-state entities onto which you want to project god-like powers) have had 10 years to backdoor and shut down Bitcoin, yet they haven’t. This is evidence that either a) they can’t or b) they don’t want to. Given that Bitcoin represents an existential threat to the central banking cartel and the entire debt-based monetary system, it’s hard to believe B. Given A, all they can do is introduce competitors and regulation to slow its growth. Too little, too late.

          “I don’t believe we shall ever have a good money again before we take the thing out of the hands of government, that is, we can’t take it violently out of the hands of government, all we can do is by some sly roundabout way introduce something that they can’t stop.” – F.A. Hayek, 1984

          “As a thought experiment, imagine there was a base metal as scarce as gold but with the following properties:
          – boring grey in colour
          – not a good conductor of electricity
          – not particularly strong, but not ductile or easily malleable either
          – not useful for any practical or ornamental purpose

          and one special, magical property:
          – can be transported over a communications channel” – Satoshi Nakamoto, 2010

  10. This reminds me of an episode of a religious program I watch in the late sixties. It featured Roy Campanella and Adam West and remember this was pre-internet it was put on by a Lutheran senard from Missouri. It featured a computer glitch that prevented a couple from buying food and when they went to an online website for help they got no help. This is a scenario from a science fiction show but was on a show that dealt with religious issues. But then we are dealing with control freaks children who think their adults.

  11. Hmm… My bet is DoD knows darn good and well no blockchain or other digital tech is, as claimed in the article, transparent, immutable, or hacker-proof. Part of the purpose may be to convince more people digital “currency” is a great idea because, being based on blockchain, it will be safe and secure. (“It must be secure if DoD is using it for nukes, right?”) Another high-octane speculation: Maybe the U.S. wants to develop this tech, convince everyone it’s secure, put in backdoors, and sell it to others (or let them steal it)–à la PROMIS software. The elites are, after all, one-trick ponies and use the same tactics over and over, so that wouldn’t surprise me.

  12. The frame from which to address today’s blog:
    Embedded in these new technologies[read blockchain] & platforms[information filters]; are tools bent by extreme prejudice, that reflect their makers ideology: how humans should interact. The makers are themselves, are caught in a long list of binaries[tech dehumanizes/tech brings liberation].
    These technological are alchemically stirring in a black cauldron; a metaphorical Buddhist “Great Turning”. Resulting in a growing tidal wave of people, now taking their first steps towards change; addressing spiritual impoverishment/emptiness.
    A kind of numerical inhuman instrument is taking over. That weight of an unshakeable lived history, is now being rewritten[rewired] via a technological, newly alchemized national story/narrative; intricately weaving a new ourselves[a NWO, hive-mind encoded DNA/soon to be (spliced into a GMO brew/I’ll explain that later)]
    A small group of leaders[moving their puppet globalized power strings]; wielding/spinning an ever tighter control over the globe, claiming that strong leadership is necessary for[insert country’s name] freedom on a global scale.

    1. It’s come down to the usual choice:
      pick your poison. In this case it’s your government usual excuse: “we” can’t trust the people/citizens[read human]. So along comes a spider[blockchain]. Trust me sez the spider to the fly[Department of War/Oops! Defense]. Blockchain moderates trust. So, you “Defense” guys must know: it’s the blockchain developers who then hold power through the technological decisions they make: code & law become conflated in blockchain. Blockchain is governed by the community around it; but its the capital that funds blockchains that will solidify the political system we live in. Blockchain governance is not unbiased or neutral its just shifting bureaucratic roles to more technical roles.

      White Rabbit

    2. Galios sounds like Gladio.
      “tamper proof”?/Paper & pencil is prone to falsification. But it is legible.
      Under Blockchain governance; although tamper proof, it is legible to only a select few. The technology of record is and has been moving inexorably to more complexity. Thus like a lot of the recent technologies; blockchain is beholding ONLY to its makers[Gods], and a handful of well funded companies[NWO]. Thus blockchain; overall, creates another layer of inequality in the information businesses, w/a focus on scaling trust.

      1. Galois Theory is used in ongoing( math) research into polytopes, that is to say, what goes on in higher dimensions…
        en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duality_theory

    3. The imperative for these companies then becomes creating an ever more tighter control loop over all variables that may exist, at any one time; making even more claustrophobic systems w/in the NWO. This then becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy of life in an AI/blockchain world: a static, closed world.
      These control freaks desire for a locked-down world arises from an inability to honor the unknown. And these people want to take the leadership role to boldly go where no man has gone before?
      Unfortunately for “them”; it’s not in their DNA to explore the universe; but in mankind’s …
      an esprit de corps literally born of out of a firey crucible of stardust, and the living breath of God.

    4. Loved it!
      Your faux-pas religious tie-in to the blockchain social credit system; plus, the exclusive control of the U.S.S.A.’s military might into little, tiny, very few, corporate clowned hands[IMO].

      Oh! The GMO thing.
      Believe it or not;
      it’s also connected to the Gates of Hell.
      In 2017 Microsoft researchers began pioneering a way to store data in DNA. A cheaper way; that was hopefully more efficient than using computer server$. Where GMO foods and DNA storage come together, in a marriage made in hell. Future GMO crops could now be encoded w/data inside their DNA. DNA has a storage life of 500 yrs.
      Plus an engineering feasible method of data destruction. For public eating said GMOs, thereby being thoroughly and delicious obliterated.
      Well, not quite the end, according to the “Yes Men”; the excrements could be repacked in a presentable way, and put into meat as a healthy filler – for hamburger $old under the iconic Golden Arches.
      It’s cheap & efficient.
      The corporate way of eating.

  13. Any program, regardless of healthy source code, can be overridden, by a compromised operating system.

    When Microsoft Windows becomes a virus, then all programs installed are automatically compromised.

    Blockchain reflects majority of healthy nodes, at any given time. But individual nodes can be altered simultaneously, between updates.

    All it takes, is a widespread virus, infecting the majority, causing a fake reality reset, by COMMUNISM.

    1. Papacy is a global hoax, that synchronizes the majority, into a fake reality reset. That is how Stockholm syndromes are gaslighted into existence.

      When the lie is big enough, the individual brain cannot fathom it. One drowns in the collective ocean of the mob.

      That leads to Plato’s cave, and the breaking of the sixth and seventh seal. From there any road is possible.

      Pendragon has no limits, when final seal is broken.
