Drove to a restaurant today with my wife and was first of all creeped out to find that they knew my name from my phone number, which I had to give to get on the wait list. They said they use a centralized database of many restaurants for that.

They have a window where you can order a beer while you are waiting. So I ordered a beer and they refused to take cash.

OK, I wanted the beer, so I paid with a credit card. Then the total had an extra $1.50 on it. I asked about that and was told that I added a tip. I specifically did not add a tip because I was pissed that they don't take cash.

I got the manager and made him remove the tip.

We are rapidly approaching the CCP utopia of complete tracking of all citizens at all times.

Lesson: call ahead and make sure a restaurant will take cash. If they will not, don't go there.

Over 500,000 Austrians demand ‘right to cash payments’ be added to country’s constitution
As central banks and globalist institutions rush to transition the world to digital currencies, Austrian citizens just delivered a huge grassroots rejection to ending cash

October 04, 2022

More than half a million Austrians have signed a petition calling for a referendum on the constitutional enshrining of the right to unlimited cash payments. In a country of 8.9 million, the massive show of support for the “right” to pay with cash demonstrates the growing movement against digital currencies promoted by central banks across the world and institutions like the World Economic Forum (WEF).

The deadline for submission of petitions regarding proposals for seven national referendums ended on Monday. As reported by the Austrian daily Kurier, the right to cash payments received the most support of seven different petitions, with 530,938 Austrians signing it.

Only petitions that receive the signatures of 100,000 citizens or more can force a debate in parliament on the topic. Given the overwhelming support behind the “right to cash” petition, there may be strong pressure to move forward with an effort to secure cash payments in the country.

How is that possible? The credit cards usually charge the merchant 1.5% to 3.5%.

I get 5-7% cashback with my credit cards.


Besides the fees mentioned, they sell your data, which is already being hooked into a social credit system. Nothing is ever free.

https://slaynews.com/news/wef-banker-eliminating-cash-gives-absolute-control-over-population/


A video has emerged of one of the world’s most powerful bankers boasting about plans to eliminate cash and gain “absolute control” over the global population through the use of digital money.

The video features Agustin Carstens, the General Manager of the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and a World Economic Forum (WEF) member, discussing the “advantages” of a cashless society.

Carstens, who previously served as the Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, issues a disturbing message about the future of the financial surveillance state and central banks’ plans to gain “absolute control” of everyone’s money.

The video initially surfaced in 2021 but has recently reemerged and gone viral in response to Democrat President Joe Biden’s push for digital cash.

The Biden Administration and other world governments have been advancing the development of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs).

The currencies are federally-issued but take the form of cryptocurrency.

CBDCs are being touted by global power elites as a means to usher in a cashless society.

Carstens boasts that by getting rid of cash and using CBDCs, governments and their financial oligarchs will be able to track purchases globally and see exactly who’s buying what.

They’ll also be able to fulfill their longtime goal of having “absolute control” over financial transactions, he adds.

“We don’t know who’s using a $100 bill today and we don’t know who’s using a 1,000 peso bill today,” the Mexican moneyman said, bemoaning the anonymity of cash.

“The key difference with the CBDC is the central bank will have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability,” Carstens said.

“And also we will have the technology to enforce that,” he added.

Carsten’s plans to seize control of the wallets of the world resemble those touted by Biden.

Earlier this year, the president signed an executive order to seize control of cryptocurrencies and lay the groundwork to turn America into a cashless society.

Under Biden’s order, the federal government will work to design a functioning, centralized cryptocurrency.

Just last month, Biden’s Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell announced that the government-led cryptocurrency ordered by Biden will “not be anonymous.”

Much like in the plans revealed by Carstens, transactions will be tracked under the Biden administration’s federal cryptocurrency.

Government agents will theoretically have knowledge of every item purchased by American citizens.

Aside from surveillance, concerns are mounting about how much control over a person’s finances such the system would allow.

Much like Big Tech companies shut down the accounts of users who “violate” their policies, a person could, in theory, lose access to their own money due to their political views.

Maybe people would think twice about questioning climate change or vaccine mandates if it means they will be blocked from buying food for their families.

They will use it as part of social credit score system.

Also they want to do away with cash transactions since they believe that there are a lot of transactions not reported to the government such as in regards to reporting for state sale tax, or for federal and state income tax.

I believe that no transactions except land transactions should ever be reported to the government.

There should be no income tax nor any sales tax, but only a tax on land values. But I always say that.

“The key difference with the CBDC is the central bank will have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability,” Carstens said.

That sentence alone should be shown to anybody to thinks a cashless society is going to be some sort of wonderfully convenient utopia. If they still don't get it, then nothing short of their funds being frozen will convince them.

When in these positions of power and wealth, they live waaay longer than any normie in their condition would. I don't know what's keeping them alive, but it's unnatural.

In her August 20, 2022, speech commemorating the Nuremberg Code anniversary, Vera Sharav reminds us why our survival depends on recognizing—and resisting—the patterns that led to the Holocaust:

“The Holocaust did not begin in the gas chambers of Auschwitz and Treblinka. The Holocaust was preceded by nine years of incremental restrictions on personal freedom and the suspension of legal rights and civil rights.

“The stage was set by fear-mongering and hate-mongering propaganda. A series of humiliating discriminatory government edicts demonized Jews as ‘spreaders of disease.’ We were compared to lice.…

“If we are to avert another Holocaust, we must identify ominous current parallels before they poison the fabric of society.

“… few people recognize foreboding similarities between current policies and those under the Nazi regime.

“By declaring a state of emergency—in 1933 and in 2020—constitutionally protected personal freedom, legal rights, and civil rights were swept aside. Repressive, discriminatory decrees followed.

“In 1933, the primary target for discrimination were Jews; today, the target is people who refuse to be injected with experimental, genetically engineered vaccines. Then and now, government dictates were crafted to eliminate segments of the population.

“In 2020, government dictates forbade hospitals from treating the elderly in nursing homes. The result was mass murder.

“Government decrees continue to forbid doctors to prescribe life-saving, FDA-approved medicines; government-dictated protocols continue to kill.

“The media is silent—as it was then. The media broadcasts a single, government-dictated narrative—just as it had under the Nazis. Strict censorship silences opposing views.…

“This time, the threat of genocide is global in scale.

“This time instead of Zyklon B gas, the weapons of mass destruction are genetically engineered injectable bioweapons masquerading as vaccines.

“This time, there will be no rescuers. Unless All of Us Resist, Never Again is Now.”

And so, the midterm election plods to a climax on elephant feet. The shift in sentiment is palpable. Under normal circumstances, the prodigious, naked dishonesty of the Democratic Party of Chaos, and its many gratuitous insults to the voting public — such as the past year’s barrage of drag queen story hours — would lead to an extinction event for the Dems. Their desperation must be such that they will try anything now to stave off an election disaster, including any-and-all forms of ballot fraud. Look to the usual places: Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, Arizona.

Keep a backup old school thermostat on hand… it takes 2 seconds to disconnect the wires and have full control again. This way you get the incentive price… but if they lock you out you turn off the thermostat and hook up the old one. Win win!

(FYI… the people locked out get $100 credit and $25 credit annually .. so they signed up to lose control from time to time)

Similar: We have a fancy wifi thermometer which has an outdoor sensor which broadcasts to indoors, but it loses the signal or the battery is out so often that I bought an old-school outdoor thermometer with no electronics. It works much better, though I do have to look out the window to see it.

I saw a similar sign when I went to pick up my meat CSA. One thing I'll say is, if you advocate for federal debt notes at your business, you should also have an open carry policy.

One has to wonder if they would be similarly leaning towards cash if it was MORE expensive for them to take than card, not less (and did not provide obvious tax cheating avenues). Somehow I think they won't be as enthusiastic.

Am I missing the joke? Who the hell uses a printer anymore? And even if you do it's generally not connected to the outside world/internet. It's a local network. I know I'm missing something here, enlighten me how HP could shut down a printer?
195   Patrick   2022 Dec 5, 7:35pm  

@WookieMan

It's a networked printer used via a subscription over the internet. HP can totally shut off such printers remotely. People in Colorado also found that their "smart" thermostats were disabled to save energy, no matter what they themselves wanted.

Who is the flying fuck does that? Honestly you deserve to get it shut off. You're a common moron.

The thermostat thing is stupid as well. Go to HD and you can get a $10 model and connect 4 wires. You're retarded if you let tech control you. Use it to your advantage when you can, but don't ever rely on it.

HP printers are now run as a subscription service: you pay by the # of pages you plan to print per month and they send you ink cartridges as needed. So it has to be connected to the interwebs in order for mother ship to know when to send new cartridges and what size. The person who bitches abot HP shutting it off because of non-payment is not being honest - they subscribed to that shit so why act surprised all of a sudden?

UK Treasury Is Looking for CBDC Head as It Explores Digital Pound

A new LinkedIn job posting from the U.K. Treasury is seeking a "Head of Central Bank Digital Currency."
"The successful candidate will be responsible for leadership of HM Treasury’s work on a potential digital pound – a U.K. central bank digital currency (CBDC)," reads the posting.

During the 2008 financial meltdown, it was reported that there was about $200 billion of drug money annually laundered through the US banking system.l Most of it was through Wachovia (taken over by Wells Fargo).

That dynamic has not changed. The flow is just so huge that it would be impossible for the Federal government not to know who is involved.

Sorry, but billions upon billions are not seized each year. The government doesn't care about these transactions, it is only concerned about controlling you and your transactions.
205   NuttBoxer   2023 Jan 30, 10:21am  

That's because it's the government doing the laundering. CIA runs drugs, and deep state has been laundering since they invented a little front called NASA.

In The Corbett Report video above, you can hear Agustín Carstens, executive director of the Bank for International Settlements, describe the chilling truth about CBDCs. Corbett describes the Bank for International Settlements, by the way, as the "central bank of central banks — the apex of the financial monetary pyramid, identified by Carroll Quigley in 'Tragedy and Hope' — and others as the capstone of the Pyramid of Power."4 Carstens says:5

"We don't know, for example, who is using a $100 bill today. We don't know who is using the 1,000-peso bill today. A key difference … with the CBDC is central bank will have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability. And also we will have the technology to enforce that." ...

"They want to replace fiat paper money with digital money as a competitor to Bitcoin and crypto money, right?

But instead of being decentralized currency, it will be controlled by a government … So instead of having a bank account with … HSBC or Bank of America, you'll have a bank account directly with — in the American context, with the Fed — in the UK, directly with the Bank of England. You have a personal bank account, and you're given digital money in that bank account.

… This money that you will earn from work, instead of having paper money, you have this digital money. It's programmable so that you can't buy certain foods, or if you do something that your employer doesn't like … you won't be able to spend your money. In other words, it's not money, they're vouchers.

They're like food vouchers. And they can be programmed. So that, like the Chinese social credit system, if you try and use them on a certain thing, it won't work. Say you want to buy a burger, and they want you to buy a box … if you start to try and buy unhealthy meat, it just won't work … you tap your card, you can't buy the thing, because you've met your quota that month, for burgers." ...

"Do you remember that parking ticket you forgot to pay last month? Well, your central bank issued CBDC, it remembers, and it will just subtract those funds plus a late payment fee from your account when you're not looking.

Got caught supporting the wrong fundraiser or the wrong political cause, like the freedom convoy in Canada? Don't worry. In a world of CBDC transactions, you wouldn't have even been allowed to donate to that cause in the first place because your wallet wouldn't let you."
207   Misc   2023 Feb 12, 11:08pm  

And yet the TBTF financial institutions just don't foresee that they will be nationalized.

--- It may just happen
