Blockchain - The Final Phase of the Protestant Reformation and Jesuit Counter-Reformation
The following statement was made by Father Joseph M. McShane, president of the Jesuit Fordham University, while giving a speech at a dual sponsored workshop, with IBM, on the Blockchain and its use.
“We have a long and storied history in the drawing up of ciphers in order to ensure that the information that was flowing to Rome was safe and secure. If the Blockchain technology is new, the concept is ancient: how to build and support trust among different parties and how to protect information.”
The statement was a comparison between the Blockchain digital ledger system and the Jesuit’s use of ciphers in the 16th century to relay communication back to the Jesuit General in Rome. Such a secure communication system was a vital part of the Jesuit mandated Counter-Reformation, which was waged to reclaim wealth and land which the Catholic Church and Vatican had lost under the expansion of the Protestant Reformation.
The modern world, from the Age of Enlightenment, through the Industrial Revolution and American Revolution, across the devastation of civil wars and two world wars, and into the Information Age, is best understood through this lens. The battle between Catholicism and Protestantism is the battle for the future of the world, and it is taking place across all continents, religions, and political ideologies.
One simple example which supports such a claim as this was the genocide in Rwanda, which halted the spread of Protestantism across Central Africa. This one sentence of truth should reverberate within the mind of the reader, while assisting in the struggle of bringing awareness to the misinterpreted history which surrounds our misguided understandings on the state of the world and its greatest institutions.
The first central bank was the Bank of Amsterdam, and was established in 1609 to support the Jesuit strategies as outlined in the list of Counter-Reformation objectives. This was detailed in the article Central Banks as a Jesuit Counter-Strategy to the Protestant Reformation. This fact is mentioned here for reference only, and readers interested in learning more about this topic should proceed to that article.
IBM has created its own version of the Blockchain and has partnered with a company called Stellar, and its cryptocurrency Lumens. Stellar was started in 2014 by Jed McCaleb and Joyce Kim. Stellar is a platform which “connects banks, payments systems, and people.” It is designed to “move money across borders quickly, reliably, and for fractions of a penny”. This all sounds interesting and easily supportable, but when we learn more we discover that Stellar is not the first player to offer such a service.
Ripple Labs was founded in 2012 under the name OpenCoin and was renamed in 2013. Ripple, and its crypto asset XRP (or XRapid) were designed to provide the exact same function as Stellar. Where Stellar Lumens would use an IBM network to support the service, XRP will use Ripple’s own XCurrent network. Over 100 banks and other institutions have partnered with Ripple to test its XCurrent network, while a growing list of others, such as Western Union, have signed on to use both XCurrent and XRapid. We will review some of these at the end of this article.
But Ripple and Stellar don’t just share a similar service and target market. The founder of Stellar Jed McCaleb was also a co-founder of Ripple in 2012. McCaleb left Ripple in 2014 under negative conditions and was subsequently involved in a lawsuit to prevent him from dumping his holdings of 9 billion XRP tokens. Ripple alleged that McCaleb had violated a 2014 agreement governing the sale of his XRP holdings. Obviously dumping his 9 billion XRP was meant to gave Stellar Lumens an upper hand on introduction to the crypto market.
Ripple Chief Cryptographer David Schwartz wrote the following about Jed McCaleb:
“Jed had a long string of bad ideas that Ripple’s Board of Directors refused to implement. So Jed started Stellar based on those ideas. Jed wanted Ripple to do a Facebook giveaway. Ripple would not do that. So that was one of the first things Stellar did. The giveaway was generally considered a disaster. As it became clear that each of his rejected ideas were bad, Stellar pivoted to become a clone of Ripple”
There is a division and rhythm to historical events and products. Following the same line as Catholicism and Protestantism, we can also see that a dialectic of sorts exists between the political left and political right. The same has expanded in the socioeconomic sphere as the cultural left and cultural right. There is always two opposing choices.
In the early days of the motor vehicle there was Ford and General Motors. The introduction of the personal computer gave us Apple and Microsoft, with IBM partnering with the Microsoft operating platform to sell its computers, while Apple had developed its own operating platform to use on its own computers.
Are we stretching facts to suggest that the same pattern exists now between Ripple and Stellar? Maybe. But when we consider that Ripple has developed XRP (XRapid) to work on the XCurrent network, while Stellar has developed Lumens to work on the IBM version of a blockchain network, it is obvious to see the comparison.
International Business Machines (IBM) were associated with Nazi Germany during World War Two and provided the punchcard machines which were used to catalogue and count camp inmates and their transportation in railcars. The Catholic Church and Jesuits were also implemented in the holocaust by providing the Nazi’s with support, in much the same way they supported the genocide in Rwanda. The holocaust murdered conservative Jews and Protestants (as well as Eastern European Christians) without recourse.
But the connections with IBM, Blockchain, and the Jesuits don’t end there. A few years after World War Two ended, in 1949, Jesuit priest Father Busa knocked on the door of IBM founder Thomas Watson in New York and pitched an idea he had based on the punchcard design. From these discussions was born the Hypertext function which decades later would be further evolved to become the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, or HTTP, which would give birth to the World Wide Web. The internet of course made it possible for the Blockchain distributed ledger technology to develop. As I said, there is a certain rhythm to historical events and products.
Just as an interesting side not, and piece of subjective evidence supporting the philosophical and ethical differences between Apple and Microsoft, it has been the accepted conclusion for decades that Apple was more involved with protecting personal security and making the OS platform stable and immune from computer viruses and malware, while Microsoft was always easily infected and spread viruses throughout networks. Still, Microsoft, and IBM, became the industry standard in corporate offices throughout the western world.
It is accepted historical fact that the Jesuits created the Order of the Illuminati in 1776. The purpose of the Illuminati was to wage war against the Protestant world through the subversion of all socioeconomic and cultural institutions. The term Illuminati of course has been so associated with conspiracy theory that most intelligent people instantly disregard it when it is written or spoken. But this should not be so.
In 1798 a book was published called Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe, Carried on in the Secret Meetings of Free Masons, Illuminati, and Reading Societies. It was written by John Robison, Professor of Natural Philosophy, and Secretary to the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Edinburgh, Scotland will immediately bring to mind for some readers the division between the Scottish Rite and York Rite of Freemasonry. The Scottish Rite developed from the Templar Network which was left behind after the Catholic Church arrested and murdered the Knights. This Templar network was used by the early Protestants, such as the Lollards, to build the Reformation structure behind the scenes before Martin Luther lit the spark on October 31, 1517. This network remains and has always existed as a threat to the power behind the Church and Vatican.
Included below are pictures of my own copy of this excellent book. It’s title is surreal when seen on one of the the original prints from 1798.
Professor John Robison and his great work have been attacked and minimized over the centuries by the academic institutions dominated by the Jesuits, such as Georgetown University and Fordham University. But this should not be so, as he has put forward a supported argument which remains relevant today. Any readers who may feel the inclusion of the term Illuminati in this article reduces its credibility should reflect that the term was in use long before our modern pop culture degenerated it into some sort of semi-cool catch phrase and conspiracy knee jerk label.
The early Protestants, including Martin Luther, considered the Catholic Church, Vatican, and Pope, to be the Beasts and Antichrist written about in the Book of Revelations. The allegory and symbolism around Lucifer, the fallen star, morning star, etc.., have been baked into the history and urban identification of the Illuminati. The term itself is considered to have come from being illuminated, or being an illuminated one, under the guidance of Lucifer, who brings the light to mankind.
As such, it would be worth considering the Stellar lexicon. Stellar of course is defined as “relating to a star, or stars”. Lumens is the “measurement of light emitted from a uniform source of one, such as a star”. The Stellar logo itself is made of a rocket ship with one window, which could also be interpreted as an eye, being the one eye symbol associated with the Illuminati and Luciferianism. Is this Lucifer, the fallen star, attempting to escape his symbolic imprisonment in the Earth on the allegoric Stellar rocket ship?
Interesting mind candy for sure.
Both Ripple and Stellar are battling for dominance in the central bank and international payments areas. Ripple has a clear head start and has already been involved with the Federal Reserve on its payments advisory project. Ripple held a central bank summit last November in New York and has even held discussions with the International Monetary Fund.
All of this aligns with the rise of Donald Trump as President of the United States. The Trump mandate is overturning the Anglo-American deep state and its network supporting the international liberal agenda. These terms, Anglo-American deep state and international liberal agenda, or order, are not conspiracy phrases. They have been used by official political leaders and corporate institutions. The reality of the battle being waged between the power structure behind Trump and the Anglo-American deep state, being presumably the personification of the Jesuits and its Counter-Reformation strategies, should be considered the centuries old war between the Catholic Church and the Protestants.
One of my all-time favourite conspiracy theories involves the intentional sinking of the Titanic. It is suggested that on board the Titanic were the conservative elite of America who were against the creation of a central bank. The large Republican wealth on the ship, and generations of families, fathers and sons, went down under the icy Atlantic waters in April of 1912. This removed the resistance and in December of 1913 the Federal Reserve Act was passed and World War One would soon commence.
The Jesuit engineered sinking of the Titanic and creation of the Federal Reserve is a huge topic with a lot of supporting evidence. I would encourage readers to explore that material outside of this article. The international conglomerate which owned White Star Lines, the fleet to which Titanic belonged, was controlled by JP Morgan, the chief architect of the Federal Reserve. The fact that both JP Morgan and the Federal Reserve are showing interest in Ripple would indicate that the power behind the Trump agenda has successfully infiltrated and taken control of those institutions, much like they took back control of the Republican Party. White Star Lines, of course, is once again aligned with the same “star” lexicon used by Stellar and Lumens.
The last piece worth discussing is the change of power in Saudi Arabia. The Crown Prince overthrew the corrupt family members and business interests in the country who were aligned with the Anglo-American deep state. This has removed the massive amount of funding which was available from the House of Saud for the deep state politicians and media outlets which conditioned and engineered Western culture for the last century. The available funds are slowly drying up with the Democratic National Committee in America almost out of money, and will have little to fund the campaigns of candidates in the upcoming mid-term elections.
Based on what we have reviewed in this article is it any surprise to learn that the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority has announced a partnership with Ripple, and will be testing the XCurrent network on cross border payments. The Anglo-American deep state used the “petrodollar” and OPEC, along with the SWIFT system of international payments, as its whips to punish and isolate any nation who did not go along with the international liberal agenda. Ripple and XRP will change of all of that. As a part of the transforming international monetary framework, from unipolar to multilateral, I have long predicted the end of OPEC. An energy benchmark based on XRP, and supported by Saudi Arabia, would achieve such an end.
Martin Luther’s defiant act against Vatican rule is widely considered to have had large ripple effects which are still defining the modern world. The sinking of the Titanic sent large ripples throughout the world as the Federal Reserve Act was established and the last holdout to the Jesuit central bank strategy fell under the control of an international banking conglomerate. And now the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States has sent different ripples around the world.
Everything is changing. Fast. Online forums are full of those who are attempting to convince the disorganized masses that Ripple is aligned with the international banks and official world governance structures, while Stellar is the upstart which is supporting de-centralization and freedom. This is not the case.
The Ripple XCurrent network is centralized but the XRapid crypto asset is de-centralized. There were 100 billion XRP created with around 60 billion still being held by Ripple. This is being used as evidence that Ripple is up to no good and will dump the majority of XRP to crash the market and steal wealth. This is of course absurd. It is my position that Ripple, and CEO Brad Garlinghouse (Harvard Business School and not Jesuit Fordham or Georgetown), are playing the long game and holding back XRP to prevent others from manipulating the market and stopping the transition to a more fair and ethical banking and payment standard.
In addition, with every XRP transaction on the Blockchain a small amount of XRP are destroyed. This means that there will never be 100 billion XRP again. As demand and usage increases the supply will incrementally and proportionally be reduced. Compare this to Stellar Lumens, who’s supply increases at a rate of 1% per year. This could be to off-set leakage and lost coins, or account for inflation, but it aligns more with the fiat and fractional banking practices which have caused the international monetary framework to have such large imbalances.
Ripple is a sound company with ethical leadership and a patient strategy. The leverage between the XCurrent network and XRapid token is an excellent implementation plan to shift the international payments accountabilities and global liquidity architecture towards a more stable and balanced framework, based on multilateral alliances as opposed to a unipolar dictatorship.
During a discussion at the Yahoo Finance Conference a few weeks ago, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse was asked if XRP was attempting to replace the US dollar in its international role. Garlinghouse responded carefully by stating that the USD “is great as a domestic currency, but…”.
There isn’t much else to add. - JC
