Failed State Walking

Failed State Walking | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
So, although I graduated with a history/political science degree long ago...the primary thing I learned is that both parties are crooked and untrustworthy...and easily purchased by the highest bidders.  So, when I show the chart below of soaring federal debt and Federal Reserve balance sheet during the last eight presidential terms...and decidedly not soaring GDP, please understand it is not to lift one party over the other.  It is to show they are both unworthy of a single additional vote.  They are there in DC for the few at the expense of the many.

Report: Hillary Clinton Gave $800K To Fund Antifa Groups

Report: Hillary Clinton Gave $800K To Fund Antifa Groups | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
After failing to become president of the United States, Hillary Clinton did what a lot of dejected politicians do: She started a super PAC. And after four months of soliciting donations, it appears that Clinton has been quietly using the money to fund resistance groups, including the militant and violent antifa.

End Wall Street’s Stranglehold On Our Economy

Let’s call this what it is: legalized looting — looting that makes a handful of Wall Street managers very rich while costing thousands of people their jobs, putting valuable companies out of business, and hurting communities across the country.

German Official Leaks Report Denouncing Corona as ‘A Global False Alarm’

German Official Leaks Report Denouncing Corona as ‘A Global False Alarm’ | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
Germany’s federal government and mainstream media are engaged in damage control after a report that challenges the established Corona narrative leaked from the interior ministry.

Some of the report key passages are:

The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.
The people who die from Corona are essentially those who would statistically die this year, because they have reached the end of their lives and their weakened bodies can no longer cope with any random everyday stress (including the approximately 150 viruses currently in circulation).
Worldwide, within a quarter of a year, there has been no more than 250,000 deaths from Covid-19, compared to 1.5 million deaths [25,100 in Germany] during the influenza wave 2017/18.
The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm.
A reproach could go along these lines: During the Corona crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.
So far, so bad. But it gets worse.

The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
Every year, endless conferences and institutions from New York to Geneva and Davos repeat it by rote. The accepted narrative goes like this: “The Problems the World Faces have become Too Great and Too Complex to be tackled by any nation-state or collation of nation-states acting in concert. The World Must Come Together to solve its problems”

But there has always been only one far from small problem with this almost universally held faith.

It just isn’t true.

The Conspiracy Myth

The Conspiracy Myth | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
What is a conspiracy theory anyway? Sometimes the term is deployed against anyone who questions authority, dissents from dominant paradigms, or thinks that hidden interests influence our leading institutions. As such, it is a way to quash dissent and bully those trying to stand up to abuses of power. One needn’t abandon critical thinking to believe that powerful institutions sometimes collude, conspire, cover up, and are corrupt. If that is what is meant by a conspiracy theory, obviously some of those theories are true. Does anyone remember Enron? Iran-Contra? COINTELPRO? Vioxx? Iraqi weapons of mass destruction?

COVID-19 Has Replaced Osama bin Laden as the Fall Guy for Lost Liberties

COVID-19 Has Replaced Osama bin Laden as the Fall Guy for Lost Liberties | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
The government and media have dumped at the doorstep of the coronavirus many of the political, economic and social afflictions that are now ravaging much…
Joe Russos insight:
As was the case when battling the evil forces of terrorism (which has been strangely quiet lately, by the way), simply uttering ‘coronavirus’ has the same numbing effect as reciting the name ‘Osama bin Laden.’ 

 It justifies every means to an end – up to and including the destruction of civil liberties – without the need for any public debate on the matter. This is reminiscent of the hysteria, complete with mysterious anthrax attacks, which accompanied passage of the PATRIOT Act, the freedom-killing legislation that was rammed through Congress in the weeks following the terrorist attacks of 9/11 without a formal reading by lawmakers. 

And just like post-9/11, when people question the draconian coronavirus measures they are vilified and accused of being ‘conspiracy theorists’ and even ‘terrorists.’ Now that the world is staring down the double-barrel of yet another economic depression and all of its attendant symptoms, fear and hysteria continue to be in the driver’s seat. 

 Yet instead of being afraid of bad decisions by bad government officials, the same individuals who led the world on a wild goose chase known as the ‘war on terror,’ we continue to heed their advice while believing that the coronavirus is responsible for the mayhem. It is not, no more than Osama bin Laden was ‘responsible’ for the destruction of our civil liberties post-9/11. We did that all by ourselves through our passive consent.

Will the Political Class Be Held Liable For What They’ve Done? – | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
“Better safe than sorry” is damned risky when politicians have no liability for what they ravage. There is no way that politicians can compensate American citizens for all the damage they have inflicted in this pandemic. This COVID shutdown catastrophe should be a permanent black mark against the political class and the experts who sanctified each and every sacrifice.

How Biosecurity Is Enabling Digital Neo-Feudalism 

How Biosecurity Is Enabling Digital Neo-Feudalism  | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
The Asian-wide collectivist spirit and discipline – especially in Confucianist-influenced societies – works irrespective of the political system. At least Byung-Chul Han admits, “all these Asian particularities are systemic advantages to contain the epidemic.”

The point is not that Asian disciplinary society should be seen as a model for the West. We already live in a digital global Panopticum (where’s Foucault when we need him?) Social network vigilance – and censorship – deployed by the Silicon Valley behemoths has already been internalized. All our data as citizens is trafficked and instantly marketized for private profit. So yes; digital neo-feudalism was already in effect even before Covid-19.

Call it surveillance turbo-neoliberalism. Where there’s no inbuilt “freedom”, and it’s all accomplished by voluntary servitude.

Biopolitical surveillance is just a further layer, the last frontier, because now, as Foucault taught us, this paradigm controls our own bodies. “Liberalism” has been reduced to road kill a long time ago. The point is not that China may be the model for the West. The point is we may have been set up for an endless biopolitical quarantine without even noticing it.

Putin’s Call For A New System and the 1944 Battle Of Bretton Woods –

Putin’s Call For A New System and the 1944 Battle Of Bretton Woods – | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it

As today’s world teeters on the brink of a financial collapse greater than anything the world experienced in either 1923 Weimar or the 1929 Great depression, a serious discussion has been initiated by leaders of Russia and China regarding the terms of the new system which must inevitably replace the currently dying neo-liberal order.

Most recently, Vladimir Putin re-initiated his January 16, 2020 call for a new emergency economic conference to deal with the looming disaster based upon a live session with representatives of the five nuclear powers of the UN Security Council.

While Putin’s commitment for this new system is premised upon multi-polar principles of cooperation and respect of national sovereignty, the financial oligarchy and broader deep state structures infesting the western nations who have initiated this crisis over the course of decades of globalization have called for their own version of a new system.

The Struggle for Science in Demented Times 

The Struggle for Science in Demented Times  | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
To address a public health crisis, sound science must be deployed intelligently. What I am warning about is precisely about that. How can reason within democratic action on pressing issues be assured? The answer to that, I would argue turns not on the rejection of sound science, nor doubting the need for science in real time, but in effectively challenging the presumed monopoly status of experts and the command and control notion of mobilizing scientific energy to address a crisis.

In February of 2019, Mark Skidmore and Catherine Austin Fitts published the report “Should We Care about Secrecy in Financial Reporting?” (Skidmore and Fitts, 2019), which provided a review and assessment of the state of federal government financial reporting and the lack of transparency therein. Since that report was published, several new developments have emerged. In this document, we provide an update on the state of federal government financial reporting on both uses and sources of revenue.

The Real Axis of Evil: Washington, the Fed, and Wall Street | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
This is the real reason that despite all of the stimulus and bailouts from Washington, zero interest rates and money printing by the Fed, we are still losing millions of jobs in America, the unemployment rate is at a 27 year high, and our economy is not moving towards a real recovery. The surging stock market and commodity prices are a slap in the face to all of us, demonstrating that there is plenty of money on Wall Street for speculation even as Main Street businesses and workers are struggling.

Key Takeaways


The Federal Reserve announced on March 23 that it would start direct purchases of corporate debt — an unprecedented rescue of corporate America.


Since then, the stock market has risen over 30 percent, corporate bond funds have recovered, and companies have saved tens of billions in borrowing costs.


Thanks to this massive government subsidy, large companies like Boeing and Carnival Cruises were able to avoid taking money directly — and sidestep requirements to keep employees on — by instead issuing bonds.

Coronavirus Bracelets Are Ready to Snitch on Workers

Coronavirus Bracelets Are Ready to Snitch on Workers | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
SURVEILLANCE FIRMS around the world are licking their lips at a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cash in on the coronavirus by repositioning one of their most invasive products: the tracking bracelet.

Body monitors are associated with criminality and guilt in the popular imagination, the accessories of Wall Street crooks under house arrest and menace-to-society parolees. Unlike smartphones, de facto tracking devices in their own right, strapped-on trackers are expressly designed to be attached to the body and exist solely to report the user’s whereabouts and interactions to one or more third parties; they don’t play podcasts or tell you how many steps you took that day to sweeten the surveillance.

How a Free Society Deals with Pandemics, According to Legendary Epidemiologist and Smallpox Eradicator Donald Henderson –

How a Free Society Deals with Pandemics, According to Legendary Epidemiologist and Smallpox Eradicator Donald Henderson – | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it

Economists have been writing for hundreds of years on the role of government in solving economic and social problems. A theme has emerged throughout: policy officials are quite often ill informed or have bad incentives compared with what individuals, markets, institutions, and society can achieve on their own. Economists have documented how government intervention leads to various unintended economic consequences and even human rights abuses.  

We prefer private governance to public governance. We have applied this logic against socialism, fascism, war, macroeconomic planning, public goods, monetary policy, counter-cyclical fiscal policy, environmental regulation, and a hundred other issues. We’ve made a solid case for pure freedom.

And yet here we are living in times when the state is controlling our movements, shuttering businesses, defining who and what is essential, dangerously disrupting supply chains, forcibly closing schools and churches, and restricting travel. A shelter-in-place order is something of a liberal nightmare, the worst-possible use of coercive power against individual rights, and the results have been catastrophic.

Do Lockdowns Work? Mounting Evidence Says No | Mises Wire

Do Lockdowns Work? Mounting Evidence Says No | Mises Wire | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it
The coerced economic "shutdowns"—enforced with fines, arrests, and revoked business licenses—are not the natural outgrowth of a pandemic. They are the result of policy decisions taken by politicians who have suspended constitutional institutions and legal recognition of basic human rights. These politicians have instead imposed a new form of central planning based on an unproven, theoretical set of ideas about police-enforced "social distancing."

Suspending the rule of law and civil rights will have enormous consequences in terms of human life counted in suicides, drug overdoses, and other grave health problems resulting from unemployment, denial of "elective" medical care, and social isolation.

None of that is being considered, however, since it is now fashionable to have governments determine whether or not people may open their businesses or leave their homes. So far, the strategy for dealing with the resulting economic collapse is no more sophisticated than record-breaking deficit spending, followed by debt monetization via money printing. In short, politicians, bureaucrats, and their supporters have insisted a single policy goal—ending the spread of a disease—be allowed to destroy all other values and considerations in society.

Has it even worked? Mounting evidence says no.

Despite the current reopening hype, the situation is only going to get worse from here on out. Certainly in terms of the economy, but also in terms of the outbreak. The globalists have openly discussed their plans for this pandemic, including a minimum 18 month period of lockdowns and “reopenings”. The public seems to be oblivious to the fact that the plan is for a “1 month open, 2 months closed” cycle going into next year. That's right, the lockdowns will return.

Target Liberty: Resist: Recognize the Enemies of Your Freedom

Target Liberty: Resist: Recognize the Enemies of Your Freedom | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it

Total control is the natural goal of people given powers that lie beyond the control or out of the control of each of us. There can be a totalitarian democracy or republic, and it can be as powerful and outrageous in its edicts and despotism as any government run by a single despot or tyrant. 


If you as an individual person cannot escape from the edicts that control your lives, then you are experiencing totalitarianism. Unlike the Russian case in which a revolution occurred in 1917 followed by Stalin’s multi-year gathering of power, or Hitler’s machinations that rather quickly brought him and the Nazis totalitarian powers, or Mao’s revolution, or Castro’s, we here in America are experiencing a long transformation with no clear ending point yet. 


The war is still being fought. The totalitarians have won many battles. If freedom doesn’t win legally or via politics, there will be open warfare. Too many millions of people accept the totalitarianism and too many millions do not. If they cannot settle their differences within politics, they will settle them by might.

The 2006 Origins of the Lockdown Idea 

The 2006 Origins of the Lockdown Idea  | Decentralized Intelligence Portal | Scoop.it

Experience has shown that communities faced with epidemics or other adverse events respond best and with the least anxiety when the normal social functioning of the community is least disrupted. 


Strong political and public health leadership to provide reassurance and to ensure that needed medical care services are provided are critical elements. If either is seen to be less than optimal, a manageable epidemic could move toward catastrophe.

Confronting a manageable epidemic and turning it into a catastrophe: that seems like a good description of everything that has happened in the COVID-19 crisis of 2020.

he Federal Reserve’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been deeply troubling. Currently totaling $2.3 trillion, the Fed’s interventions include direct lending to large corporations, as well as small- to medium-sized businesses. It is an unprecedented expansion in the kinds of assets the Fed puts on its balance sheet. The central bank is directly allocating resources, which is beyond the rightful limits of monetary policy.
