Jeff Stein is the Newsweek Spy Talk columnist. He is an interesting figure to consider from the standpoint of history and narrative. I hadn’t realized that Stein had an anti-CIA history of his own .
In the spirit of noting the “plagues” visited upon Newsweek, I might have found the Holy Grail of the Newsweek-Russia connection (of course, by way of David Jang). Well maybe it is more like The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.
Just a quick update of sorts to my original post on “The Bitcoin-Russian Information Warfare Nexus“, as I watch the bitcoin crash and note that Roger Stone paid a visit to the Ecuadorean embassy to drop off a
love letter card to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
I forgot to put something important in my first post.
The so-called first mention of bitcoin in “main stream media” was in a PC World article in relation to WikiLeaks’ acceptance of the cryptocurrency as a donation in December 2010. At least that is the way bitcoin mastermind Satoshi Nakamoto seems to have seen it too.
“It would have been nice to get this attention in any other context. WikiLeaks has kicked the hornet’s nest, and the swarm is headed towards us.” – Satoshi Nakamoto
With all the talk about Korean market forces being a driving force behind the bitcoin, it is worth revisiting the origins of modern Newsweek. It is a potential conspiracy that interests me a lot. Is it interesting that when Newsweek returned to print in March 2014, that the first cover story was about bitcoin, then trading close to $500?
At the time, at least one Reddit user joked (?) this meant that David Jang (‘David’ Jang Jae-Hyung), a long-controversial “Christian” figure connected to the ownership of the ‘new’ Newsweek was actually bitcoin mastermind Satoshi Nakamoto.
March 2014 is obviously an important milestone in ‘Hybrid Warfare History’, and I have already connected bitcoin to Russian propaganda/intelligence. It bears worth asking if we can ‘mine’ for a connection.
