Your Bitcoin is NOT Anonymous: IRS Moves To Track Bitcoiners With New Chain Analysis Tools

by | Aug 25, 2017 | Headline News | 72 comments

Do you LOVE America?



    Last month founder Brandon Smith warned that Bitcoin may not be all that it’s cracked up to be in terms of its purported anonymity:

    For years, one of the major original selling points of bitcoin was that it was “anonymous.” It always surprised me that so many people in the liberty movement bought into this scam. Surely after the revelations exposed by Edward Snowden and organizations like Wikileaks, it is utterly foolish to believe that anything in the digital world is truly “anonymous.” The feds have been proving there is no anonymity, even in bitcoin, for some time, as multiple arrests using bitcoin tracking have indeed occurred when the FBI decided it was in their interest. Meaning, when the feds want to track bitcoin transactions, they can, and it does not matter how well the people involved covered their actions.

    Because every transaction exists on a public blockchain ledger, an enterprising organization – say like the NSA or IRS – could conceivably implement blockchain analysis tools to track down Bitcoin fund transfers around the globe. These days most bitcoin transactions are originated on “trusted” exchanges that exist in Western nations, where governments have always found new and innovative ways to ensure citizens have no privacy whatsoever, especially when it comes to personal finances. This means that there is more than likely a record of your original Bitcoin transaction, perhaps involving a credit card or bank transfer, and if regulators ask an exchange to turn over the information you can bet they’ll do so in order to avoid unwanted government scrutiny. Moreover, most exchanges now require a driver’s license, passport and even a phone number in order to approve your account for trading.

    The point is, for government investigators with a bone to pick, your crypto currency activities online may not be as anonymous and private as you may think.

    In fact, so exposed is the blockchain to Big Brother monitoring and interference, that the Internal Revenue Service has now implemented blockchain analysis tools to help them track down individuals who are profiting off the crypto currency and not declaring these profits on their tax returns.


    According to a contract recently obtained by the Daily Beast, the IRS can now track bitcoin and other cryptocurrency addresses. They can do this to route out potential tax evaders. They purchased software from the blockchain analysis group Chainalysis.

    The document details that “criminals” have used digital currencies to launder money, deal drugs, and commit other unlawful behavior. However, criminals have also been using digital currencies to ignore tax liabilities and evade responsibility. The Daily Beast article elaborated:

    The document highlights how law enforcement isn’t only concerned with criminals accumulating bitcoin from selling drugs or hacking targets, but also those who use the currency to hide wealth or avoid paying taxes.

    Reason for IRS Crackdown; Tracking Bitcoiners

    The reason the IRS is cracking down on digital currencies appears to be because only 802 people declared bitcoin profits or losses in 2015. The Daily Beast article suggests that many people may have not expected the IRS to collect on digital currencies. Others may have just thought they could easily sidestep this alleged obligation.

    As a result of this failure to pay taxes, the IRS consulted with Chainalysis. They are now providing the IRS with tools to track bitcoin addresses through the blockchain and centralized exchanges. A Fortune article captured a screen shot of the letter:


    The tool that Chainaylsis gave the IRS is called a refactor tool. It visualizes, tracks, and analysis transactions on the blockchain. Agencies from law enforcement, IRS, and banks will be able to use the tool, according to sources. To date, records show the IRS has paid Chainaylsis $88,700 since 2015 for its services.

    Prepare for a full-out onslaught against the government’s newest enemy: crypto terrorists.

    That means YOU, if you happen to own any Bitcoin.

    Because as we highlighted in 2014, under new directives passed by the Obama Administration, concrete facts are not necessary for you to be put on any number of government watch lists:

    The recently declassified Watchlisting Guidance rule book issued in 2013 and developed by members of 19 law enforcement agencies that include the FBI, NSA, CIA, and NSA, outlines the rules for placing individuals, including American citizens, on the various watch lists currently in use. As noted by The Intercept, the rules, much like America’s secretive anti-terrorism laws, are vague and often contradict each other.

    It reveals a confounding and convoluted system filled with exceptions to its own rules, and it relies on the elastic concept of “reasonable suspicion” as a standard for determining whether someone is a possible threat.

    Because the government tracks “suspected terrorists” as well as “known terrorists,” individuals can be watchlisted if they are suspected of being a suspected terrorist, or if they are suspected of associating with people who are suspected of terrorism activity.

    “Instead of a watchlist limited to actual, known terrorists, the government has built a vast system based on the unproven and flawed premise that it can predict if a person will commit a terrorist act in the future,” says Hina Shamsi, the head of the ACLU’s National Security Project. “On that dangerous theory, the government is secretly blacklisting people as suspected terrorists and giving them the impossible task of proving themselves innocent of a threat they haven’t carried out.”

    The guidelines for who is or is not a terrorist are now so vague that any American could potentially be added to a list for something as menial as knowing someone who has committed an activity deemed to be of terrorist nature. And as has been highlighted previously, those activities could range from making a hand gesture that looks like a gun or manufacturing your own gold and silver coins.

    And now, of course, trading or owning Bitcoin.

      1. I told you all a month ago Bitcoin is Not Anonymous. As the FBI admitted they can track Bitcoin transactions if needed.

        • I said the same thing. A private company already does this for the government. I’ve seen the software in action. Tumblers/Mixers don’t help. There is a way though. I’ve done it and they lost track of me.

          I can post instructions if anyone is interested.

          • Sure, I’m interested in the instruction. Post away.

          • Maybe they didn’t lose track of you. Maybe NSA doesn’t find you interesting?

            How would you know you lost the tail?

            • If you cannot touch what you own then it’s not really yours.

              • you can touch bitcoin but you would get an electric shock

          • Ok, Azrael I’ll bite. How did you do it ?

            Also, since you seem to have some knowledge, what do you think of Monero’s privacy in it CURRENT (I know the old versions had problems) state ?

            • Monero is doing a great job with anonymity. Pivix is also a good contender – zerocoin protocol

        • totally agree!!!
          after snowden, you are alerted you have the biggest tax-payer funded facility to record EVERYTHING…
          and strangely there are ppl who still want to believe they are/can be ‘free’ from the system…
          the only way to be ‘free’ from the system …. is to be above the law.
          This anon thingy is always a law question – under or above
          The other option of ‘free’ is to use it in the dark web
          where to date they still havent capture yet
          but then one would really go into dangerous ‘lawless’ catagory according to them and easily allowing them to lable one as ‘criminals’
          so where is safe to use BITcoin? not until they capture it.

          now already appearantly there have been ppl’s door getting knock by the friendly authority… asking questions… and the hammer drops
          let’s see if you tell them who your friends you know are trading bitcoin?!
          the paper profit may be spectacular but this deep deep game is nasty….
          it (can) destroy the soul-moral-ethics-identity of man thro and thro
          again unless if you are a japanese where the gov there approve by law
          you are playing/you are being played in somebody’s game
          and you aint in control (they see you clearly)
          the only good thing is… to find you is like finding a needle in the 7 oceans
          and you may not worth that effort/return
          but then by 6 degree association, ppl know ppl and know other ppl
          there is always an easier way to find ppl (all who are registered in their system at brith and then again deregister at death – standard accounting)
          espacially if they use some advance psy-tactics for presurre or worse
          they only need to use threat of law/prison like when they confiscate gold
          ppl will line up to admit their ‘crime’ and pay the penalty
          nasty nasty ripples of potential things to happen… in a country that already has problems upholding ‘person as soverign’ and ‘same law for all’
          potentially another stab to the already torn social fabric… sad
          p/s same in china… ppl can go to jail if they are pin by the law there too.

          bottom line: until the consciousness of humanity raise much much higher and we are in a new or different system, this current one is not friendly to personhood and hance there is and CANNOT BE Anonymous
          be safe

        • how could anyone think it is private or anonymous? The data is on a server.

        • kinda funny though that a category 4 hurricane is putting thousands of people at physical and mental risk but this prepper site is concerned with idiots that bought bitcoin?a real head scratcher.

          • A hurricane doesn’t double down, and keep doubling down.

      2. The only thing actually “anonymous” in finances are in person cash transactions with someone you don’t know and who doesn’t know anything about you.

        And even then, only if he or she is not a government agent of some kind.

        • Yes, Anonymous, and also only if those “in cash transactions” don’t involve a savings card or a price plus card.

        • Or if there aren’t any previously planted listening devices and/or cameras in the general neighborhood.

        • Cash transactions are no longer anonymous.

          Technology is now rapidly being deployed to track every piece of paper money (FRN) from the moment it enters circulation until it is retired.

          Scanners have been (or will soon be) installed in every bank, retail store, and office to monitor, record, and transmit the denominations and serial numbers of every FRN as it changes hands. This is not conjecture; just ask your local bank manager.

          The government (and many corporations) are eager to assemble files on every dollar spent by every citizen. Even if you make a private deal with a friend, as soon as THAT person spends or deposits the money, the system will link the money’s last-known location (you) with wherever it popped up next (in the hands of your friend). A transaction like this could cause a ‘red flag’ alert that results in a visit or phone call requesting more information — naturally, with stiff penalties for failure to cooperate — so that the government can determine exactly what was purchased, and whether appropriate sales (or other) tax should have been collected on the transaction.

          Do not kid yourself that cash is anonymous. Maybe back when Andy was sheriff of Mayberry…. not any more.

          • Cash is still anonymous if you get rid of it, trade it into gold and silver, then back into cash. Even asking a store to change a twenty-dollar-bill ends the trace.

            Now, your drivers’ license, with that passive array chip, they have you there. Same thing with a passport. Wrapping both in lead-lined foil, or carrying them around in insulated packs is supposed to work. But who knows for sure.

            When the time comes, the grid will break down. Bitcoin and all these cryptocurrencies will disappear. Gold, silver, platinum, and cash (for a while) will remain.

            • How much cash can you accumulate by trading it into PMs and then back out again? How will you manage this without a paper trail, or digital trail? –and remember, you will be taking a small loss on every transaction.

              Likewise, how much money do you think you can accumulate by asking stores to change bills? For any meaningful amount, it will take forever — and you’ll attract unwanted attention if you attempt to do this on a large scale, or do it with many transactions over time; it will be regarded as suspicious.

              Furthermore, even if you DO manage to break the trail of whatever cash you accumulate, what will you do with it? Sure, you might be able to buy something out of the back of a truck on a deserted dirt road… but as soon as you (or the guy with whom you make a private deal) spend any of that money in a store, it will be linked with that person’s name… and possibly “red-flagged” as cash that has a broken trail.

              Also, the rapid advancement and spread of identification technology will eliminate the effectiveness of a simple shuffle such as you describe. Think about the cameras that take your photo every time you pass through a turnpike toll booth — I suspect it won’t be long until your photo is taken every time you offer/receive cash everyplace — not just banks, but EVERY place from the local convenience store right down to the vending machines at work. That photo will be scanned for biometrics, and your identity will be linked to the serial numbers of the cash that you have used.

              Some folks might think this sounds too much like science fiction; but the actual technology to do all of these things exists right now. All it takes is for the systems to be built into new devices as they are being manufactured, and for the networking to be set up. When you consider the phenomenal amount of insight that can be gained from spying on every single financial transaction that can be gained by monitoring all citizens from the cradle to the grave, I have little doubt that such systems will appear. Probably sooner than we all think.

              On top of all this, it’s probably safe to say that laws against “money laundering” will probably become expanded and more severe in the future. While originally intended for large-scale criminal enterprises, they will also become a handy way to scare ordinary people into staying within the system. Once people read a few stories about how Fred the plumber was sentenced to 18 months in jail for buying a few hundred dollars worth of supplies with “laundered money”, very few will want to risk using cash with a broken trail.

              Even now, people are being conditioned to believe that a desire for privacy automatically indicates that a person is doing something wrong. How many people under 25 care about privacy issues? Virtually none: they are all immersed in a digital world that provides instant gratification for constant “connectivity”. As older folks die off, there will eventually be nobody left who remembers what it was like to live in a world with privacy; and thus, nobody who cares about it.

              The ‘surveillance society’ is not standing still. It continues to expand. Look at all of the surveillance that we are subject to — fifty years ago, people would have been shocked by it. Now, 99% of the population don’t seem to even care.

              Imagine how bad it will be in the future — and it won’t take fifty years, either. Within another ten or fifteen, I doubt if anyone in the USA will be able to buy so much as a candy bar without the purchase being recorded into his “consumer profile”.

              Surveillance systems already track all of our communications, and most of our movements. Once total financial surveillance is in place, the last vestiges of privacy will be gone.

        • My local bank already uses a device that looks a lot like the “JetScan iFX® i200 currency counter and scanner”. Probably your bank does, too.

          Soon, scanners will be built into every cash register, and every currency note that goes in (or out) will be linked to an individual and his purchase.

          • Bullets can be completely anonymous if done correctly.

        • We barter all the time…. A gallon bag of black berries for 2 lbs of Honey. You cut and rake my hay and I’ll bale yours.

      3. bitcoin is a rediculous CIA joke that is out of control. must reel the slaves back to reality.

      4. When Bitcoin was introduced they deliberately gave the illusion of anonymous so they could reel unsuspecting people in with this false sense of privacy and anonymity.

        • Bitcoin was designed as a HoneyPot Trap to catch those involved in illegal activity. When the Government does not attack Bitcoin like it does other Nations like Libya, who use other currencies other than the US Dollar. Beware it is the sign of a TRAP, thats the first sign of gotcha. Not only can they track all transactions in Bitcoin, they can also confiscate your bitcoin balance with a click of a mouse if they want to. I have said all along Bitcoin and crypto currencies are the NWO new cashless money system. Look at all the idiots that played along. Welcome to the trap you stupid imbiciles.

          • you are right crack.

      5. OFF topic
        I just heard about hurricane harvey.sounds like it may get nasty. Stay safe ,keep your powder dry , your loved ones close, and God bless Texas.

        • AB

        • AB, Sgt. Dale, All,

          Agreed! “Stay safe, keep your powder dry, your loved ones close, and GOD BLESS TEXAS!” GOD BLESS LOUISIANA, and may God keep everyone in the path of H. Harvey safe!

          Louisiana Eagle

          • Isnt the edges of that system giving you folks rain and wind too? Is a big old storm, winds extend way out from the center.

            • Keep your eyes open. Hurricane Harvey is setting its sights on the area around Corpus Christi. Located not far from where Harvey is expected to make landfall is the South Texas Nuclear Project nuclear power plant.

              The plant is obviously designed to take a sustained hurricane even greater than Harvey, which was a four when it hit land, but can the plant take 30 inches of rain?

              Flooding was of course what took out Fukushima’s extra pumps and generators, causing the meltdown.

              • Not good!
                I swear, whoever thought nuke power was a good thing should be interred and slapped. Just the fact that the waste is deadly should have been enough to say no. Typical though, a doctorate and not a lick of common sense

        • Yes, it’s CAT 4 now. And, it’s going to hang around for days and days. The weather guys said it is because there are no steering winds to move it along as is the usual case.

          Houston, you have a problem.

          • I just heard around 1030hrs that it might go back into the Gulf, and reign terror somewhere else. God forbid!!


        • i was in texas for military training, i only remember one thing “The Alamo!”

      6. I have a question could Bitcoin be the new one world currency????

        Makes one think now doesn’t it?


        • That’s exactly what Brandon Smith predicted a while back. He said the bankers would use bitcoin as the one world currency or start a separate cryptocurrency that would bury bitcoin. I see a couple con artists on this site talk trash about him on every article, but Smith has been right almost every time.

        • Sarge:

          You mirror my thoughts. The first time I heard of Bitcoin, I was put off. I am a sceptic. The word comes from a word meaning dog. A dog sniffs his food B E F O R E eating it. So, the next time someone calls you a bitch, remember that a bitch has the sense to investigate its meal.


        • The creator of Bitcoin built into the software a maximum size the Bitcoin system could handle. Only so much Bitcoin money can be created. The system will then only allow Bitcoin trade of existing Bitcoin.

          This is much like the problem shoukd the world wanted a currency based on gold, there is in fact a set amount of gold in existence and only a specific amount produced annually by gold mines.

          The amount of US Dollars in circulation is vastly larger than all the gold in the world. There just isn’t enough to support a global system of trade.

          The block chain security built into Bitcoin totally blew away the governments attempts to hack it. They do seem to have found away to watch transactions in progress, but to date I don’t think bitcoin has been hacked.

          A digital one world currency is great, especially for the guy that hacks it first.

        • bit coin is very unlikely to become one world currency
          but they are pushing really hard for CRYPTO to be one world currency
          Thats another reason bit coin is not ‘safe’
          If each country has their official national crypto, would they allow bit coin to continue to exist? like some where out there decentralised?
          decentralise = free from their control = free from their law = free from their share of looting/stealing/taxes = let you be a free soverign when nobody has escape from them for the last few thousand years (at least)
          does not the empire always hunt down its enemy, even if they have to chase them from across the borders and silence forever?!
          let fact check history….
          remebering lava bit… they didnt get the emails but they sure destroy one person life and future mercilessly
          are you sure you are up for that?! do you have a backbone that strong if unfortunately your name shows up on their lucky draw list?!
          Also if you have phy gold/silver and if unfortunately you have to escape from your beloved country and go east, anyone there will give you food and shelter if you pay them gold/silver. good luck trying to survive w your bit wallet 😛
          Nevertheless and again, if we do have a new and different system,
          one that is honest and good for the people, this crypto technology is a wonder! but for now, barter is the best, gold/silver is next, and cash is still bearable. After all they can and have already printed all the money they want, so its not about money. Its about control.

      7. Under Trump, Sessions, Mattis, Pompeo and other assorted puppets of planted repression the American people have no rights beyond what the criminal government grants them. To obey finance rip offs and to remain muted as the bankers and war demons enrich themselves beyond imagination. Entrenched and showing the peons who is boss. Working overtime to further strip any leniency of freedom the people mistakenly think they still possess. That’s maga in a nutshell.

      8. Anything you do on the Internet is not private!
        The TCP/IP stack protocol was not designed to be
        private, it was designed to share information.
        Why do you think so many people can hack it?
        Stick to cash till the government fails, then
        go to barter.

        • Sound advice

      9. If the government can track cryptocurrencies, isn’t it logical to assume that they can also make them disappear? Or confiscate them? Little green pictures of dead presidents, while not without their own problems, are still the only really viable means of conduction an anonymous transaction.

        • Too true. Legal tender of paper or precious metals is more certain. If it’s not in your possession, it’s not really yours.

      10. The new world order will have digital currency in place when they finally pull the plug on the economy. They will have everyone implanted with a chip (as the bible says) where any transaction is digitized and stored. There will be no currency….who can say if its “bitcoin” or some other digital currency. But it WILL be a digital currency similar to bitcoin. “thou shalt not buy or sell without the mark of the beast[implant]”.!!!!!

        • LOL the Bible says nothing about being chipped. The “mark” of the beast…Yes!

      11. Words that trigger the system “bitsh”.


      12. The government sucks,,,,,,,,,

      13. They make it so there is absolutely no motivation to develop or produce anything unless you dont mind forking over a huge share of what YOU EARNED WITH YOUR WORK AND BRAIN!!!!
        They can blow me

      14. This was know years ago. Very old news.

        Because bitcoin is Pseudonymous, there have been other crypto coins created that are supposed to be 100% anonymous… as in the block chain doesn’t record *who* sent what. And some with built in “mixers” to disguise who sent what where… but even that can eventually be broken.

        And FYI: It’s not possible “track down individuals who are profiting off the crypto currency” because the block chain doesn’t say why the coins moved from one address to another. This is a misunderstanding by the author of this article. It’s actually referring to people who are getting paid in bitcoin (like cash under the table.)

      15. Nothing is anonymous. They track and record everything you do and say. To be used against you in a court of law..

      16. Whats the odds on an attack at burning man?

      17. Anything done on a computer, with public software, connected to public systems… Understand?

        Who owns the systems?

        If you rent, you know that the landlord has a spare key to the house. But you still need some privacy. Because, if you put that key under the door mat, then the entire world has it… Follow?

      18. I know computers, have worked with them since the early 70’s (talking punch card machines, octal even). Everything you do on any network is traceable. Period. If you couldn’t be tracked none of your connections would work. Every single computer on the internet (and this means phones too) has a unique number. When you interact at a site, that site also has a specific number. The way everything you do to/with that site causes action(s) on your computer is because those two numbers (yours and the sites) are put on every communication in both directions. That’s how you get routed to the right place and vice-versa. There is no privacy or security of any kind in the world of computers. Everything can be traced and hacked. All someone needs is a reason.

      19. Everything you do on any network is traceable. Every single connection and site on the internet has a unique number. The way what you do at a site works is because those two numbers are how your info gets routed to the right place and vice-versa. There is no privacy or security of any kind in the world of computers.

      20. Everything you do on any network is traceable. Every single connection and site on any network has a unique number. Those two numbers are how your info gets routed to the right place and vice-versa.

      21. Not really news,the NSA has always had these tools from the very beginning,after all,rumors claim they were the original source of Bitcoin and most cyptocurrenicies.Now that,Bitcoin and others are somewhat accepted by this particully small segment of the population,this was the best way to sniff out the tax dodgers,the troublemakers,people that dont trust the government and thats exactly what you are witnessing.Note,India did this a while back with its banning of cash,to do exactly the same.Its just a cat and mouse game for them.So stack up on gold/silver next time.

      22. Great point CSS, they went into perpetual war over a gold backed currency, and bitcoin is chilling make large dollar profits…until *SNAP* 😛

      23. Of topic,. just for conservation sake.

        There are three things that can kill a man in life.

        1) death from disease and natural cause, old age etc.
        2) car accidents

        No 3 is most trouble some. The number cause of death from 2017-2025 in my opinion will be from gun shot wounds from our own Military, or other military, chi-com, UN Russian, Muslims, etc, disease starvation, lack of water and food, etc, and other ailments. . This will be the number one fatality of all men in the range from 5yrs old to 80 yrs old between 2017-2025. I am making a prediction. Women will experience something far worst that this.

        Here is another good gun battle scene. This is for private property owners, and this is what you can expect from chi-com Russian, US cabal black ops military, raining down on American families. Hollywood does a good job at showing us that they will using these tactics that they show in the movies to kill Americans. Every Preppers needs to watch this stuff to kind of remind us what we are up against, except that these gun battles in Hollywood look like a real joke in comparison to the real situation, per my conservation with Vietnam and gulf war veterans. The veterans tell me that they prefer invasion on American soil because this is their turf, and they will fight to the death, kill capture, and do executions of foreign soldiers.. All you chi-coms, Russians, UN, Mongolian
        burkas, and you kung fu chi-coms, muslims, jihadist and other nationals, including minorities, MS13, and domestic military that have violated the constitution and have turned on the American people, you know who you are. You really don’t know this but I have to let you all know, you soldiers need to know that the patriots are VERY, VERY, VERY, FUCKING PISSED AND VERY EXTREMEMLY ANGRY. I write this I higer caps to let you all know. In fact its very scary even for nobodies like me. They have told me and others, that any military that ever paratroops over Texas, invades from the ground, ever enters our city, and fires on the populous, that you will get the war that you want. This is not coming from me, this is coming from them. Think this is bullshit, watch the gun and ammo sales, the ammo and guns are still selling off the shelves.

        Roger Stone just mentioned to TMZ that if Trump is removed from office, that a civil & revolutionary war will commense and they are laughing at him like this is some kind of joke.

        All us preppers know that the Civil and Revolutionary war is coming since they plan to remove Trump, that we voted for and the fact that we elected him. The end result of this war will be heavy price if your killed, and they capture you wife and kids. Our families will pay a horrific price.

        Check out the link, how fast can it happen once they get on your property. Are preppers, and Patriots ready to handle a tactical team. Let me know what you all think.


        Good luck to everyone. Keep prepping.

      24. Bit coin can be bought with credit cards which is easily tracked . The IRS may have come across a way to reduce the 20 trillion dollar U.S. debt by the legal capital gains tax on Bit coin transactions. Those who don’t pay the tax, will end up broke and in jail. We must remember the only constant in life is death and taxes. Some have made fortunes with this new currency so pay the tax like everybody else does. Once they pass the law that every taxpayer must divulge Bit coin holdings or face felony charges and fines it would be sheer stupidity not to comply .

      25. People keep posting as if the US is the only place on the planet. NOBODY CARES about the USA. 350 million with 6 billion in the world. The IRS is useless to the rest of us..

      26. Never underestimate the government’s forensic computational ability. The Utah NSA internet storage facility is just an example. I have said, that unless I am mistaken, that they can track your ISP site. This is the equivalent of using a ballistic locating device to find the source of the sniper (hidden secret shooter, or in this case, crypto user).

      27. The Deep State is digging real deep now. They dug up retired US Senator John Danforth to criticize Trump. Who is Danforth? He has a Bachelors degree in sociology and is an ordained Episcopal priest. You can’t be much more left than that pedigree. Worst thing is, he was a Republican senator. If you remember, he was appointed to white wash the Waco investigation. The Deep State couldn’t have any of their own being convicted of atrocities. And now they brought him out to criticize Trump. Danforth should be in prison, at the least. Is Trump the real deal? I don’t know. Judging by the resumes of his detractors, he might be. Only time will tell.

      28. Since most of you don’t seem to understand Bitcoin and other CC’s, let me drop one on you:

        Yes, they can find out the address that purchased something. At no time have they ever been able to associate a name with that address. THAT is the beauty of the CCs! While they can track what an address does, nobody has any idea who that address belongs to unless you tell them.

        So, chin up. Not all is doom and gloom.

      29. one coin in particular has bullet-proof untraceable transactions and is currently way undervalued since it is about to be open sourced… just a few weeks. we do have tools to fight back and shield ourselves, protecting rights guaranteed by the 4th amendment. the better mousetrap :

      30. BIT Coin came about because we tought the *uckers up there work for US??

        No, we find out it didn’t and Bitcoin is just a NICE way of us to say *uck YOU.

        Otherwise, you wouldn’t know it.

      31. About the criminal IRS:

        Former gun-carrying, IRS Criminal Investigation Division (CID) Special Agent exposes how the IRS is robbing you!
        He quits his $80,000/yr. job because the IRS failed to show him that filing & paying Income Tax is mandatory.
        He will tell his story and his latest efforts for restoring honesty in government.

        “There is no law requiring the average American to file or pay the federal income tax.”

        visit Joe:

      32. I think the day is upon us, to do the right thing and fight the criminals. . .The Left, Muslims, Blacks, Foreigners and on and on, seems everyone out there hates the White Man just because.

      33. US Gov’t cannot even protct it’s naval vessels from being the targets of electronic warfare. So, what makes one think they will be able to hack bitcoin wallets. Laughable.

      34. These cryptocurrencies are just a dry run for the coming cashless global financial system, where every transaction is recorded. Right now, only the cash you carry around is “freedom.” The cash in your pocket is the only real money.

      35. Yߋuu underѕtand what Pastor Jοhansson told us on Suday iis that God really
        likes worshіρ. Daddy added.
