Looks like the ruling class has settled on the App Store attack vector against Twitter.
This op-ed in the NYT, from the trust and safety guy who just quit, spells out the gameplan. archive.ph/FtKCq
Now, they need to convince BlackRock and Vanguard, which own a significant stake in the company, to support the measure. No idea if that has already occurred. Tim Apple has a lot of sway, but he will probably do what he's told.

Clearly a coordinated op.
The anti-ad campaign didn't go well, so the same forces that I discussed here are likely mobilizing the effort to shut them out of app stores.
Shutting down Parler was one thing. But this effort is MUCH more ambitious. Does Apple want to risk the safety of its monopolist status to make an authoritarian political statement? We shall see.

Don't like the U.S. team flopping and faking injuries. Very soft. I will refrain from discussing how this is a result of our declining cultural priorities 😂
And now the game is tied because the U.S. side is playing like a bunch of soy people. Well deserved.

I trust neither Grayscale nor Coinbase nor regulatory compliance promises. Not your keys, not your coins.
FTX contagion may have caught some of these industry whales. Would not at all be surprised if they're broke as a joke.
Coinbase exists to dump scam coins on to retail on behalf of sketchy crypto VCs. You think they have everything nice and buttoned up?

Easiest way to clean out D.C., through a one step vetting process, is to simply oppose every single legislator who got the vax 😂
And yes this includes the gene juice free individuals who falsely claimed they got the vax
Those who got the vax and now regret it can write an essay on their mistake, and how they will commit themselves to fighting the pharmaceutical industry complex. They will then have to wait 10 years before becoming eligible for office again.

There is already no cash economy left. The Fed already controls the money through its printer.

Legislators and regulators will of course eventually move forward with CBDCs, but "crypto" platforms like FTX helped to facilitate that.

Crypto ≠ Bitcoin
The crash of FTX is a good thing, as it will encourage people to take possession of their assets and assume personal responsibility. Centralized exchanges like FTX possessed a fatal but completely avoidable counterparty risk to custodial clients.

Not your keys, not your coins.
Unlike in the traditional financial system, where one cannot simply take physical possession of their investments, one of the advantages of bitcoin is that you can easily hold your asset in a permissionless, secure fashion.

Pretty wild story suggests SBF colluded with Bahamian authorities to transfer FTX assets into their custody, following the company declaring bankruptcy. Maximum levels of sketchy. archive.ph/v5u37
Some $663 million in FTX assets were moved into the possession of these authorities. That's 6% of the country's entire GDP.
The inside job is just unbelievable, given that SBF knew very well that he should not have gone near those funds post bankruptcy.
