Mt Gox has gone bust.
We’ll take a quick bow (along with Gary North, Robert Wenzel, Bionic Mosquito, and several others).
We Bitcoin-deniers stood our ground in the face of relentless and
shameless]pumping, supported by rent-a-libertarians, like the former chief editor of the Daily Reckoning, Joel Bowman and shameless other opportunists
[On rereading this, I think I want soften my tone, since the anti-BTC’s have been proved by events.[
See the two MBP posts below:

My comments are anonymous, because I was worried that the elites might attack people who criticized BTC, just as they trashed Assange critics all over the net:
- People promoting this might as well have INTEL stamped on their forehead.
@Philip, Anonymous, edward.
Intelligence and government are multi-layered, not unitary.
The right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. Sometimes even the left hand doesn’t know. Just a finger or a nail knows.
Intelligence might take a while to understand the potential in something their scientists come up with. So it might take a year or two or more. Then they embrace it.
The MSM media is brain-washed one way – the obvious mainstream, Keynesian brainwashing.
The alternative media, including hard money people, are past the mainstream brainwashing, but they fall for the second-level brainwashing – they fall for Snowden, Assange, Hacktivism, Crypto-currency, Wikileaks, and all such black operations, meant to appeal to gullible, egoistic anti-govt types.
There are legions of agencies involved who profile dissent and come up with the red herrings that will be swallowed by the maximum number of fools and opportunists.
The economic dissenters trust their hard-money gurus, but that crowd is filled with two-bit cons who will fit their agenda to whatever the intelligence agencies tell them.
Please go back and look at when Bitcoin mania started and look at who has promoted it.
Be wise as serpents, my friends. Wenzel’s instincts are right. I hope he will not be dazzled by Mayer’s “expertise” and misled into supporting this con game.
As for sources. Do some research directly yourself and see what you find.
their ‘endgame’ …. .
@Phil McKreviss, EndtheFed,
There are a few libertarian (rightist and leftist) blogs where Assange and Snowden have been deconstructed thoroughly. No need to reinvent the wheel here. Let your fingers take a walk and you will see that they are both mouthpieces for the global elites.
Some reliable sources you could read: Cottrell, Rappaport, Creighton, Rajiva, Madison…off the top of my head.
China – China is a COMMUNIST country, my friends. Goldman Sachs has a big presence there.
End-game is control – maximum control over your assets, your money, your movements, your writing, your thoughts – so they can harvest it all for themselves.
The elites would be gods…and for that, they need for you to be less than men. They need for you to be little BITS of a machine.
Read everything critically, inwardly, not in this trusting fashion.
Rest assured, when something shows up on the internet, with this much fanfare, the elites approve.
Freedom is hard.
It will not come without sacrificing some time, effort and along the way, some favorite delusions and consolations too.
Biggest delusion is to believe that there is any quick simple remedy whereby you get to make a ton of money quicker and liberate “the world” too.
All that is Grimms Fairy Tales in a special edition for libertarians.
