This is the video that spurred me to make this sub. It's not actually my area of expertise and so I'm hoping you guys use this space, because I don't really have much to share on this subject.

In this case however, I think it's the MOST important question and the most overlooked, when dealing with survival situations and thus I've (tried) stickied it as a starting point.

Welcome all, I hope you all both find and share some useful things in this sub! (I'm surprised it wasn't already made...)

It's only the first 2 minutes, 20 seconds that he addressed the ADL donation. Rest is just, whatever, daily stuff

A few (possibly?) "yuge" statements...

  • 0:30 "I made the mistake of picking a charity I was advised [sic], instead of picking a charity I am personally passionate about"

  • 0:52 "I uploaded the video and people could tell something was off"

  • 1:11 "If it was to clear my name I would have done it years ago"

  • 1:33 "I knew it wasn't perfect, but I also didn't know a lot of things that surfaced throughout the whole thing, about this charity"

  • 1:45 "These are things I would have known myself if I had just taken the time"

  • 1:56 "It doesn't feel genuine for me to proceed with the donation at this point"

So he's:

  • Undoing the donation
  • Learned about ADL
  • Admits he usually does "conspiracy research".
  • Admits he was "adviced" [sic] to donate to that particular "charity".

I completely agree about 99% of "truth channels" being a waste of time. Check into Quantum of Conscience audiobook on his channel, it will help you a TON to cut through the bullshit! I can't recommend it enough.

If you check into Josh Reeves you'll also learn about a (not so) "secret society" that is the cause of that. For what it's worth - I've been subbed to Reeves for a long time and if anyone qualifies as a "suppressed but not censored because small-fry" channel, it's him, by a million miles. Dude could literally destroy the Earth with what he knows, if he had piles of money.

He has a pair of films called The Secret Right that explores the (extremely rarely talked about) group.

I obviously missed a few other good ones like truthstream and older (dead) people like Mae Brussell - but the list was already too long.

The two channels I have consistently respected for a long time, despite any failings/quirks/etc that may annoy me, those are superficial, when searching for truth:

This is Bill's second last episode - and the last episode he discussed research (thus, is his "last show") and may be one of the key pieces in combining his work into modern understanding.


Channels I've been following a while:


Some newer channels I'm still not 100% or have some small issues with that don't prevent me from finding good stuff inside:

I think it would be good to compile a list of reasons NOT to watch certain "popular" "alternative" channels, but that's far more work than assembling this list.

Tl;DR:

If I had to choose from this list, those I trust 100%? None. But I trust Reeves around 99% and Cooper 99.99% (even with Reeves expose about his death). Alien Scientist is around 95% but I believe he's severely misguided/wasting his effort/time.

Update: I tried the ipad/totally unrelated account (on the same wifi - as a primary test, given it failed, I now have to find a different connection to test on - probably tomorrow).

The comment appeared visibly for between 52 seconds and 3 minutes.

The only conclusion I can come to is that either: A) the channel owner is deleting the comments (which makes sense since they were obviously READING and hearting the comments at the same time I was posting) (which would be VERY odd since I am only suggesting something, which if I want to get conspiratorial - why would he be talking about 5 sided stargates and deleting my comments about six-sides?) or youtube is manually reviewing/removing based on my IP?

That was what I was thinking (some what) - in that it appeared "IP specific". I'm about to test it by posting a comment from gf's ipad on her account on some rando video and seeing if it goes away too.

I thought at first it had to do with me having linked a few of my g-accounts, but after making the new one and trying with that (which isn't linked to the others) - it survived for a few hours then was taken down too.

Like, if it was automated it would have recognized "Boris Best" as from the same IP and just auto done it, but because it survived long enough to get upvotes, I wonder if it's being done manually (again, not by Florida Maquis, as he wouldn't have been able to pre-emptively ban my "A." account).

This kind of reminds me what happened when I tried signing up for twitter. I used my main email (the one associated with the youtube channel I posted my vid to) - sign up - sign in and ALREADY banned. This was twitters response. (Notice the time stamps from when I signed up and when they replied about me being banned. 3 minutes different.)

I haven't done anything to offend Florida Maquis - and unless he's banned accounts I never even use... then I don't know how this is happening.

Going to try your advice while I fiddle on the ipad now.

Not sure why the video this post links to isn't showing up above, here's an embed

THREE accounts, including one brand new one made to test this hypothesis - THREE comments from three accounts, magically don't show up the second you sign out of the commenting account.

I show the first TWO in the video - and posted a third to try and inform the user. That comment received 3 up votes before apparently disappearing also. It WAS appearing upon sign out - but when I woke up this morning: no dice. Link to the imgur from the video

The last comment I made I know was seen was this over here which the host addressed in the next show (thus I know he saw it).

Not sure what's going on - as I said in the video description, someone will probably explain what is going on, how this all works and I will feel stupid and find out it's all my fault, but until then - this is seriously vexing.

Because you've told you're cabal that your ethnic group is the original race, and the chosen by God. Any other more ancient and more advanced civilization undermines the hoax of the cabal.

Especially, the main members who actually believe their crazy prophecy(s). Cause if it's proven to be fake, then it all falls apart.

Aliens, are a hoax that the cabal is in on, so it's controlled by the cabal. Not a threat.

I agree 100% if you're saying what I think you are.

You're saying that the "more advanced aliens" would undermine "their" supremacy as "God's chosen ones" etc etc (I assume you mean hebrews, but this works equally as well for any religious extremism) - and thus it's not the play they will take. I agree!

Along this vein - an "alien invasion" would have to be purely of "destruction" - and "defeated" in a "War of the Worlds" kind of sense - (my guess would be by one of the two religions that propound alien knowledge - to set themselves up as one world religion would be the "saviors".)

But even that is relatively complicated and involves the wasting of resources, land - infrastructure - essentially - it ruins a bunch of the big-kids lego pieces!!

I don't think they want to get rid of us - there are a billion ways they could have done that already... I feel like they want us alive and functioning (to a certain limit obviously) and feeding and building their monstrosity.

Following that thought, then yes, the "ancient civilization" "green beam" idea would be far more likely.

Hmmm

As I also told you before, you're free to ignore my posts if you don't like my style. This is the third time you've come into threads to complain about my titles, rather than discuss the topic at hand.

Did you ever stop to consider that perhaps as per your (original) advice, I tried to take more time adding more substance to my posts, rather than rely solely on the editorialized titling?

No, of course you didn't. You see the extra-work put into recent posts as me being a "hippocrate" (it's hypocrite). You simply want to derail my threads and sling mud because you don't like my opinion and/or writing style.

At the same time I realized you were (partly) correct and I could put more effort into my posts (by, as per my time-preferences - posting when I have the time to post things fully), I also realized I don't need to rationalize my titles to you - nor do I need to have any kind of set-in-stone rules for how I do it.

8 Mysterious Facts about Gunung Padang Pyramid. Geologically dated to be +20,000 years old. Indonesian Govt was offered $1 Billion for 60% ownership, after advanced technology was discovered in 2014. Excavation has not resumed since. by Tom_Bombadil in AncientHistory

It was this particular site that started my questioning of the whole "Hancockian-Atlantis" vector the "research" community appears to be headed down.

While I personally have no evidence against this site - there are some things that stand out to me - especially when I consider my own thesis about why this is happening.

Long story short: instead of a "blue beam from space" - I think we may very well see a "Green beam from earth" - that is to say, the faking of ancient sites/artifacts/lineages to enact a political power-play.

Such a thing might explain how complaints like these, are actually occuring:

I tried to be pretty thorough before writing my critique of your work at Gunung Padang. I sought out every morsel of information I could find that you had released on the net. I watched a number of videos where you were interviewed, or where you toured the site with visiting alternative scholars, like Andrew Collins, Robert Schoch, and Semir Osmanagic of Bosnian “Pyramid” fame. I surveyed a wide sample of media reports and articles about your findings, both credulous and skeptical. Now, you say we should not make judgments or criticisms until your findings have been formally published—but your reservations do not seem to apply to the Atlantis True Believers who have been merrily building great towers of speculation on exactly the same data as I had access to. In effect, you have handed control of the Gunung Padang narrative over to the lunatic fringe, while telling those of us with any professional expertise to shut up and wait for the data. There’s something wrong with that picture.

As much as I am part of the "lunatic fringe" (and a target of and still a non-believer in - the mainstream science apparatus) being handed the site, I agree with their assessment... something is wrong here.


Indonesian government geologist Danny Natawidjaja says that his team’s work in 2011 drilled into the hill and found rocks, organic material, and possible cement that had radiocarbon dates back to 22,000 BCE. The dated organic samples were not associated with artifacts and therefore are dependent on the hypothesis that the entire hill is an artificial construction.


We all know symbols matter to those in charge.

So why is "Hancock" the first to put his name to paper (ie: resigning his social status to start change and inspire others to "sign up") - Dr Richard Firestone (and his fiery-stone... he was the one who proposed the comet theory...) - and Danny Hilman... and his... hill.

Tenuous, perhaps... but I still notice this shit and I know the enemy isn't stupid, as much as it seems at times.

Why fake an alien invasion - when you can falsely claim to be "Atlantean" - show people your (tax-payer purchased) "space ships" and "magic medicines"... and you can fire up ANY political power move YOU WANT. ANYTHING.

You want to attack China using greenbeam as the set-up? Easy. You want to get people to give up all tech by lying and saying it's what sank atlantis (or some equally stupid shit)? Easy. You want people to bow down and worship you? Easy.

Why eliminate most of the population, when they are your "cash cows"... literally. Let the cows fight over the slowly depleted resources, it won't touch you in the ivory tower, right? Time and time again, they show a propensity for NOT wanting to get their own hands dirty.

That's why I say fuck aliens, fuck blue beam - it's THIS shit - this archeology shit, that's what the real plan is. Just as I said they will make a conspiracy theorist of as many people as possible, so they can use the outrage to over-throw the old world order - they will equally use this "new-archaeology" to overthrow previous history and rewrite it (to their benefit, obviously).

Tread carefully.

I found the answer to your question, quite by luck!

Another part of it

There are at least three editions;

First Edition; 510 pages (1991)

2005 Edition; 499 pages

Avoid the 2019 Revised Edition;

434 pages

This edition has an entire chapter removed.

Chapter 15; "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion"

(66 pages)

The link I posted has 500 pages and chapter 15, so I am guessing it's the 2005 edition.


The person who controls the book rights, show title and show website are his former Co-host/friend, Doyle Shamley.

From a plebbit comment I made on this subject a while ago:

There's a significant amount of evidence that his "best friend" Doyle Shamley was a plant (including the fact that he was NEVER around or on with Cooper again, towards the "end").

There have been youtube channels (mainly, highly christian Watchmen channels) that have had Cooper content copy-right struck by Shamley, while plenty of other channels run around uploading the content available for free on Bill Cooper's old website (which again, is now run by Doyle - I'm guessing the wife/children wanted nothing to do with any of it).

So if anyone is editing the book - it's either the publisher w/ Doyle saying "w/e send me the cheque" - or Doyle, sabotaging Bill's work?

Then again the chapter is... well, we all know what it is... could have been a requirement of publishing - maybe Doyle just knows something we don't :p

Which is it?

Australopithecus Prometheus or Australopithecus Anamensis?

My problem is that no "scientist" can be omnipotent or all knowing - and thus, cannot see the conflicting realities they are spinning by not being up to date on the cutting edge of their field.

AI sorting of data is not new but honestly, if Aaron Schwartz could download all of JStor all that time ago - why are we still suffering through the intellectual poverty of implicitly trusting a labcoat to be up to date and well informed, when it's almost never the case?

Edit: Sure, everyone wants their discovery to be the greatest find - but that's just the typical arrogance that befalls many. Too many people use the excuse of "science" to (also) back up what they think (rather than what they know).

Science appears as a tool for unraveling mystery but is double-edged, as the concept of "doxa" or (un-knowing) can easily get lost in the concrete terms is demands of its followers.

Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $572 million for its role in Oklahoma’s opioid crisis (Vigte: 572mln/6,000 Oklahoman victims = $95333 per life) by Vigte in news

[–]Vigte[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

More than 6,000 Oklahomans have died of painkiller overdoses since 2000, the state charged in court papers, as the number of opioid prescriptions dispensed by pharmacies reached 479 every hour in 2017.

400,000 nationally.

Johnson & Johnson’s products — two prescription opioid pills and a fentanyl skin patch sold by its subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceuticals — were a small part of the painkillers consumed in Oklahoma. But Hunter painted the company as a “kingpin” of the drug trade because two other companies it owned grew, processed and supplied 60 percent of the ingredients in painkillers sold by most drug companies.

“At the root of this crisis was Johnson & Johnson, a company that literally created the poppy that became the source of the opioid crisis,” the state charged.

Gotta cover up the Afghanistan war on terror connection - and the Chinese connection... but that comment I bolded, about being the company that literally created the poppy. Uh... what?

With more than 40 states lined up to pursue similar claims against the pharmaceutical industry, the ruling in the first state case to go to trial could influence both side’s strategies in the months and years to come.

I bet... it's called a template. A way to appease the pubilc and not crush the drug maker.

state attorneys had wanted the conglomerate to pay $17.5 billion over 30 years for treatment, emergency care, law enforcement, social services and other addiction-related needs. But the judge concluded it would cost $572 million to remedy the drug crisis in the first year

Uh... yeah... hate to be the bearer of bad news but... that's not going to fix much of anything. Court and victims got played. What mock justice.

The state also said that Johnson & Johnson took active part in the pharmaceutical industry’s effort tochange doctors’ reluctance to prescribe opioids by mounting an aggressive misinformation campaign that targeted the least knowledgeable physicians.

That, I believe.

Oklahoma settled in March with Purdue Pharma, manufacturer of OxyContin, accepting $270 million from the company and its owners, the Sackler family. Most of that will go to a treatment and research center at Oklahoma State University, although the federal government is seeking a portion of the money.

In May, two days before the trial began, the state settled with Teva Pharmaceuticals, an Israeli-based manufacturer of generic drugs, for $85 million.

Oklahoma is just running through pharma-companies like toilet paper at a chili-festival.

Legally, the trial centered on the state’s novel, perhaps unprecedented, attempt to claim the drug company created a public nuisance in the state of Oklahoma. Historically, that law has been used against loud neighbors, brothels and polluters who used their properties in ways that harmed others. The remedy has been to force them to stop.

But in this case, Oklahoma, citing the law, said the drug company’s conduct did “annoy, injure and endanger the comfort, repose, health and safety of others,” as well as “render Oklahomans insecure in life and in the use of property.”

Clever I suppose, but a bit risky.

Beyond the broken trunks and a few dark tree-lined hills stood Pleistocene Park, a 50-square-mile nature reserve of grassy plains roamed by bison, musk oxen, wild horses, and maybe, in the not-too-distant future, lab-grown woolly mammoths. Though its name winks at Jurassic Park, Nikita, the reserve’s director, was keen to explain that it is not a tourist attraction, or even a species-resurrection project. It is, instead, a radical geoengineering scheme.


Pleistocene Park is named for the geological epoch that ended only 12,000 years ago, having begun 2.6 million years earlier. Though colloquially known as the Ice Age, the Pleistocene could easily be called the Grass Age. Even during its deepest chills, when thick, blue-veined glaciers were bearing down on the Mediterranean, huge swaths of the planet were coated in grasslands. In Beringia, the Arctic belt that stretches across Siberia, all of Alaska, and much of Canada’s Yukon, these vast plains of green and gold gave rise to a new biome, a cold-weather version of the African savanna called the Mammoth Steppe. But when the Ice Age ended, many of the grasslands vanished under mysterious circumstances, along with most of the giant species with whom we once shared this Earth.


Global Cooling is beginning to make a reappearance in mainstream sources?

In the flood myths of Noah and Gilgamesh, and in Plato’s story of Atlantis, we get a clue as to what it was like when the last glaciation ended and the ice melted and the seas welled up, swallowing coasts and islands. But human culture has preserved no memory of an oncoming glaciation. We can only imagine what it was like to watch millennia of snow pile up into ice slabs that pushed ever southward.


But to grow his Ice Age lawn into a biome that stretches across continents, he needs millions more. He needs wild horses, musk oxen, reindeer, bison, and predators to corral the herbivores into herds. And, to keep the trees beaten back, he needs hundreds of thousands of resurrected woolly mammoths.

So, to fight climate change, this guy wants to destroy half the forests of the world and import cold weather animals? Am I missing something?

Though the concept certainly reeks of "Agenda 21" etc...

White Supremacists Want a Dirty Bomb (Vigte: Press X to doubt?) by Vigte in politics

[–]Vigte[S] 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

On Dec. 9, 2008, police raided the home of the millionaire James Cummings in Belfast, Maine. Cummings was an abusive husband, and he had been shot in the head by his wife, but that wasn’t what still disturbs investigators to this day. At Cummings’s home, police obtained radiological material and literature on constructing a dirty bomb.

Ok

More than a decade later, on Aug. 3, 2019, a gunman posted an anti-immigrant, white nationalist manifesto on a far right forum, walked into a Walmart on the East side of El Paso, Texas and opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle, killing 22 people..

Uh huh?

The Islamic State declared its intent to get its hands on a nuclear device in its propaganda magazine Dabiq. Al Qaeda trained the domestic terrorist José Padilla in Egypt and Afghanistan and then sent him back to the United States to detonate a dirty bomb.

Ok, sounds about right?

The budding nationalist white supremacist terrorist movement in the United States is no different.

Poor logic based on assumption, but I'll keep reading.

“The goal of the white nationalist movement is to disrupt the current society in enough of a way to inspire other people to pick up arms against the government,” Assistant Anthropology Professor at Vanderbilt University with a specialization in white nationalism, Dr. Sophie Bjork-James

You should probably "re-specialize" I think times have changed since what you remember, old timer...

So, aside from two disconnected events - which they throw away by saying "its ALL connected!!!" and some "nukes bad" repeated over and over - just another classy hit piece with some fear mongering sprinkled on top. Lovely.

Edit:

Four neo-Nazi roommates lived together until one of them converted to Islam and shot two others for disrespecting his religion.

Wow, such white supremacy!

These are not isolated incidents; in 2004 and 2013, the FBI arrested two white supremacists interested in acquiring and detonating a dirty bomb.

Moreover, these are not “lone wolves.” They are part of an extremist network bound by white supremacist ideology, far-right hate, and online indoctrination. And there is no shortage of evidence that they want to acquire their own radioactive weapons.

LMAO, except you seem to have a fairly difficult time linking them all together...

Protest in Zimbabwe gets violent as police clash with demonstrators (Vigte: here we can observe the three types of police officiers...) by Vigte in WorldNews

[–]Vigte[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The police in the front rush in - and spank everyone once and only once with the batons in an effort to get them to move along - the one dude is about to spank the old lady and she's like: "fuck that I already had one!"

In the back however, we can see officers ignoring an (hopefully) unconscious person, while having a bit of tiff with someone else.

The police chief - who I am certain is only concerned with "optics" - intervenes, thankfully - though probably not for altruistic reasons.

As I said, here we can see the three types of officers:

1) People doing it for a genuine desire to get the job done in a reasonable manner (again, don't know each person individually, but I presume these are the types of people who take the job to try and make their community a better place).

2) People who take the job to use the authority to abuse others.

3) The police chief is a difficult call - is he a #1 or is he a #3 - a socio or psychopath who is clever in their abuse of power - an intelligent #2.


Edit: I should analyze the dude getting beaten up too:

His screaming feels insincere to me, but I won't lie - he got the SHIT kicked out of him a few times in the arm and the legs and head...

Notice the reluctant and dispassionate "kick" the officer gives him after the chief shows up and then the officer just wanders off to find a new victim...

A most genius defense mechanism to "turn off" (in an almost sexual sense) a bully?

Dude's got a warcry for daysssss.

No, I'm acting like you consistently want your take on the matter to trump all other user comments on the thread.

Sometimes I am busy and only have a short amount of time to dedicate to "my take" - others, I spend more time, when I have it. Edit: This link is kind of a fractal representation of what I am talking about. You will say I didn't spend much time on it and it's not my best post, but I also don't feel like wasting the time looking for a better example. You see what I mean - about wasting time and efficiency? It kind of doesn't matter what someone thinks of it, when you know it's working for you.

My time is important to me - and I take out of it to share things and sometimes, that sharing is cutting into work or other such things, so it's not really a priority, but I want to share it anyway. Sorry if that doesn't "work for you".

Ah, I see you're using public ridicule as an argument against my opinion.

Like you did to begin this conversation?

Regardless of that, if you thought I was calling you silly, I was absolutely not! It is an experience I've had a lot on Reddit and once or two on here however and I seek to avoid the wasted time and negativity by distancing myself from titles that might seem unsettling.

Again, I was not referring to you in that sentence - or any of the other examples, I was explaining why I do it (because of OTHER people).

Well, I think that since the users select what to send in AND have the ability to both change the title or make a new one, the user have editorial responsibility over those parts of the post and even a bit of responsibility for the validity of the content.

I present the title of the article (as brought to you by whomever it is authored by) and then add my opinion on the end - when I don't have time to make a huge "submission statement" - which I enjoy taking my time on. Everyone is free to ignore it if they wish, it's not my loss.

I don't consider posting one's own comments in the post title as an improvement in efficiency,

You may not, but it works for me when I'm in a rush.

but I DO consider the use of visibility tactics as a desire for attention.

Or to facilitate visibility to share pertinent information that I found that I feel may be valuable to others - considering the state of affairs.

Edit 2:

No, I'm acting like you consistently want your take on the matter to trump all other user comments on the thread.

And if that is how is appears, I sincerely apologize.

You're acting like I speak in the third person consistently like some lunatic, when all I am doing is ensuring visible difference between the headline and an "analysis" which isn't long enough to warrant posting within the thread.

Or to differentiate my opinion from the headline, to ward off inevitable argumentation and semantics, for example this. Some people are silly enough to think the title of the posted article, reflects the beliefs of the poster - a common mistake I don't particularly feel the need to waste my time with, when I can openly mock the stupidity of the article, in the thread title.

Don't mistake visibility tactics and efficiency for a desire for attention.

I know this probably belongs in s/music but there's a dual purpose to posting it here.

1) It's (one of) my general research songs - I think the lyrics illustrate the situation we're in (and it has a lot of energy)

and

2) It's full of symbolism, but I'm not big on analysing stuff like that.

Anyway, enjoy the song and keep your spirits up, we're going to win eventually.

Bloomberg - The Fate of the World’s Largest ETF Is Tied to 11 Random Millennials (Vigte: The fuck?) by Vigte in news

[–]Vigte[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks to a quirk in the legal structure used to set up the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust, known as SPY, more than $250 billion rests on the longevity of 11 ordinary kids born between May 1990 and January 1993.

LMFAO.

Those children are now carving out careers in public relations, restaurants and sales, spread around the country from Boston and Philadelphia to Alabama and Utah. But none of the eight spoken to by Bloomberg News was aware of their role in investing history.

At least 8 of the 11 named in SPY’s documents have a family connection to the American Stock Exchange, which structured the first ETF and was bought by NYSE Euronext in 2008. For example, Most -- the grad student -- is the grandson of Nathan Most, one of the creators of SPY.

Oh yeah... keeping it (power, in this case, rather than money) in the family.

Claire McGrath was a lawyer in the options division of the AMEX in the early nineties. She remembers a call going out for babies’ names that could be used by the trust and volunteered her son, Kevin, and two nephews, Paul and Peter Pavelka.

Seriously?

Jay Baker, now director of capital markets at Exchange Traded Concepts, an ETF issuer, says he put forward his daughter’s name. “They needed some names,” said Baker. “I think somebody said ‘Would you volunteer your daughter?’ and obviously she didn’t have a say in it -- and I was fine with it. It was just part of the process.”

That sounds weird to me... just... weird.

One of the few non-AMEX-related people mentioned in SPY’s documents is Elizabeth Angel, an Atlanta-based engineer, and daughter of Jim Angel, a renowned finance professor at Georgetown University.

I guess you're either part of the structure/network, or you ain't shit - but we all knew that.

Look at the jobs these people hold too, I'd consider them "successful" - I bet they all wear their fancy pants and tow the line just right!

Alexander Most, 27, who’s about to start graduate school, studying education, policy and management

Kevin now works in PR in New York, while Paul and Peter are based in Philadelphia, tending bar at a trendy restaurant and working for the city’s water department, respectively.

Birmingham, Alabama-based siblings Rian and John Imwalle (no more info?)

Emily Weber, 26, who works in enterprise sales in New York.

Elizabeth Angel, an Atlanta-based engineer


SPY isn’t the only ETF set up in this way. Seven other funds were also set up as unit investment trusts, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

So this is basically a tactic then? Not just a one off - good to know.

I swear, they WANT people to see this as a conspiracy.

I've been saying it for almost a year now - they are MAKING people conspiracy theorists ON PURPOSE - so they can overthrow the "old way" and introduce their "new order" - bright and shiny environmentalist legislation that (appears) free of corruption and hatred - something that will be acceptable to both the left and the right.
