There have been several unexplained deaths of crypto leaders recently that are reminiscent of the assassination of the eleven biological scientists; many of them wanting to come forward with information about a deadly plague in the works. Perhaps there were some crypto whizzes that wanted to talk about the FTX scandal or connected fraudulent acts by several governments but unfortunately, they were silenced abruptly. The timing is interesting, especially as the US will be launching its digital currency test run in December. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about TALES FROM THE CRYPTO CRYPT.





It all started in 1984 when Congress cut off funding for the Nicaraguan resistance. CIA station chief in Costa Rica, Joe Fernandez, sent a confidential message to the FDN (Nicaraguan Democratic Force), authorizing them to seek “alternative funds”. They were told that they would have no interference from authorities if they tried to enter the U.S. by air or sea. The alternative funds would be in the form of drugs for weapons.

Key operatives in Iran-Contra were George Bush, Oliver North, Dewey Clarridge, John Pointdexter, and Caspar Weinberger. The entire operation, however, would have to have bi-partisan efforts. This would require the cooperation of former CIA operative and then Governor, Bill Clinton.

Cocaine was obtained from Colombia and moved to Panama where it was protected by Panamanian defense forces. Next, drugs were moved through Costa Rica, where the shipments were personally guarded by the Minister of Public Security. The final destination was U.S. territory. The flights were handled by the FBI and CIA and met no resistance.

The major traffic point was Mena, Arkansas, where the weapons production and training of Contras took place, and where the shipment of guns and trained Contras originated. Planes returning from Central America would be carrying cocaine. It was easy to load drugs on the planes that returned to the U.S. after delivering weapons to the Contras. The distribution within the United States was handled by the Mafia.

In order to have a free license for such activity, they would have to have the blessings of the highest office in the state of Arkansas. That would come from Bill Clinton, then Governor. Clinton who had been a CIA operative since his days at Oxford University put his seal of approval on the operation, but not without a price.  Clinton made deals to launder CIA money through his scam loan agency, Arkansas Development and Finance Authority. In return, he retained 10% of all the money laundering, and through the ADFA financed local companies, including the Park-O-Meter company in Russelville, Arkansas, to manufacture guns for the Contras.

The CIA chose Arkansas because it was like the banana republic where politicians could be bought for money. It was a state with a single party and no opposition. Anything could be achieved with money. In fact, the Arkansas Crime Syndicate, headed by Bill Clinton, became so deeply involved, that the CIA became concerned that they would be exposed.

This was the beginning of the conspiracy of what is called the Arkancide List or the Clinton Death Count.

On August 23, 1987 two boys were found dead on railroad tracks near Mena. The bodies were Kevin Ives, 17 years old and his friend, Don Henry, 16 years old. Their deaths at the time were ruled accidental by Clinton-appointed state medical examiner, Dr. Fahmy Malak.

The presumption was, that the boys fell asleep on the tracks and the train ran over them.

The record shows that Malak testified erroneously in criminal cases, that his rulings were reversed by juries and that outside pathologists challenged his findings. In one instance, he misread a medical chart and wrongly accused a deputy county coroner of killing someone. In another, he based court testimony on tissue samples that DNA tests later indicated had been mixed up with other tissue samples.

What initially appeared to be a grossly incompetent investigation was actually an orchestrated cover-up. Residents reported small, low-flying airplanes coming in at slow speeds over the tracks in the middle of the night with their lights off just prior to revving up and flying away. Linda Ives, Kevin’s mother became suspicious of the boy’s deaths with all of these rumors.

After fighting the Arkansas justice system for several years she won an exhumation and re-autopsy. An out-of-state examiner said the cause of death was clear: murder by beating and stabbing before they were placed on the railroad tracks. Malak was exposed as an incompetent fool, yet Governor Bill Clinton supported him, in spite of his being a political liability.

Apparently, the boys were deer hunting that night.  They had no idea that the tracks were used by Mena pilots as a site for dropping off drugs and money, and that a drop had gone missing three nights previously, causing panic at Mena. The concern was not the missing $400,000, but the missing transmitter that was in the case with the money. If someone found this, it would be traceable right back to Mena. In a classic case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Kevin and Don stumbled right into a police protected drug drop site, where Law  enforcement officials and drug smugglers were waiting to see who might show up. The boys were chased down and taken to another location. At that point they were beaten and stabbed. Then there bodies were placed on the track in hopes that all evidence of the murder would be distorted by the train mangling the bodies.

A US Senate subcommittee in 1989 called the available evidence about Mena sufficient for an indictment on money laundering charges. But the feds scraped a five-year probe of Mena and interfered in local investigations The state police were taken off the case. Clinton refused a request from one of his own prosecutors to pursue the matter any further.

In spite of the evidence, every investigator who has tried to expose the crimes of Mena has been professionally destroyed. After six investigations, no one to date has been indicted for the train murders or any other crime that has occurred at Mena.

One president, nine Supreme Court justices, one hundred senators, and 435 congressmen equal 545– that is the magic number that is supposed to represent us. But now we have to include the untold number of deep state operatives that have now been weaponized against those who have differing political beliefs than the current administration.

545 is the total of how many, out of the 300 million people in this country are directly responsible for how we are living in this country.

Several alphabet agencies report to the chosen 545 and do not question their motives. They only know that there is a crisis and an executive directive that imposes civil rights violations across the board. There is one alphabet agency, The CIA that does not answer to Congress. They have unlimited budgets to wiretap, observe, search and seize property without due process.

The Central Intelligence Agency is an independent US Government agency responsible for providing national security intelligence to senior US policymakers.

On December 17, 2004, President George W. Bush signed the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act which restructured the Intelligence Community by abolishing the position of Director of Central Intelligence and Deputy Director of Central Intelligence and creating the position of the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. The Act also created the position of Director of National Intelligence, which oversees the Intelligence Community and the National Counterterrorism Center.

Since the September 11th, attacks we have become an intelligence state, a surveillance state, and a full-time police state enforced and protected by the 545 that created the crisis in the first place.

The Biden Administration has flexed its muscles by using the security apparatus as a sort of gestapo to eliminate the enemies of his administration.

Weaponizing of the security apparatus is certainly proof that a deep state establishment exists and works independently to round up political enemies of this administration.

But he is not the only one.. many Presidents have done this –some more than others.

There has always been rumors about how the Clintons and the Bushs had a secret “executive assassination ring.” The conspiracy theory that was ubiquitous during the time was that while the CIA was told that they are to eliminate enemies, like terrorists, there are those who believe that The Bushs and the Clintons had hit lists that they would use as secret police to eliminate those who wish to bring down the Presidency or reveal state secrets that would jeopardize national security or the Presidency.

Revelations that the Central Intelligence Agency launched a world-wide assassination program, and then concealed its existence from the U.S. Congress and the American people for eight years, carry an implication that death squads may have been employed against political opponents.

Back in 2009 the Wall Street Journal reported that A secret Central Intelligence Agency initiative terminated by Director Leon Panetta was an attempt to carry out a 2001 presidential authorization to capture or kill those who were seen as enemies of the state. This was reported as Al Qaeda agents or known terrorists — but looking deeply into the initiative showed that alleged enemies of the state were targeted and eliminated at will.

The Washington Post, however, revealed that the assassination plan was sanctioned by President Bush. Unnamed “intelligence officials” told the newspaper that “a secret document known as a ‘presidential finding’ was signed by President George W. Bush that granted the  CIA broad authority to take out suspected terrorists and enemies of the state

The CIA was “not obliged to notify Congress of each operation envisaged under the directive.” This implies that targets could be hit anywhere, including on the soil of a NATO ally or inside the United States itself.

The deep state was employed after the 9/11 attacks and was used well into the Obama administration. The Central Intelligence Agency was very deeply involved in domestic activities against people they thought to be enemies of the state. Without any legal authority for it.

It was a major issue when Barack Obama ordered the execution of  Anwar al-Awlaki, and his 16-year-old son by a drone strike.  Anwar al-Awlaki, was alleged to be an operational leader of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.  Anwar was killed by a CIA drone strike also ordered by Obama two weeks prior to the killing of his son.

The program was allegedly shut down by Panetta, a day after learning of the agency’s clandestine initiative. What make these revelations all the more significant is that the CIA Director only learned of the program fully four months after assuming office.

Dr. David Kelly, who leaked information to the press that the British and American governments continued the development of offensive biological weapons was believed to be the victim of a targeted hit because he was a Whistleblower.

The former head of the microbiology department at Porton Down, the UK’s secret biological and chemical warfare research facility, at the time of his death Kelly was a consummate insider, a trusted keeper of state secrets; dangerous and deadly secrets that could topple governments.

A civilian employee of Britain’s Ministry of Defense (MoD), Dr. Kelly was a biological weapons expert and former United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq. His off-the-record conversations with journalist Andrew Gilligan about the British government’s fraudulent claim that Iraq possessed “weapons of mass destruction” set off a firestorm.

While David Kelly wasn’t a spy, he did enjoy unprecedented access to the world of secret intelligence.

Kelly had worked with two American scientists, Benito Que and Don Wiley, who also turned up dead under highly suspicious circumstances.

It was originally claimed by authorities that Que was bludgeoned to death during an attempted carjacking in Miami. “Strangely enough,” The Toronto Globe & Mail reported in 2002, “his body showed no signs of a beating. Doctors then began to suspect a stroke.”

Wiley, according to the Canadian newspaper “was an expert on how the immune system responds to viral attacks such as the classic doomsday plagues of HIV, Ebola and Influenza.” After planning a trip to Graceland with his son police “found his rental car on a bridge outside Memphis, Tenn. His body was later found in the Mississippi River. Forensic experts said he may have had a dizzy spell and have fallen off the bridge.”

As it turned out, the pair were “engaged in DNA sequencing that could provide a genetic marker based on genetic profiling.”

After David Kelly’s death, there were other biological scientists that died under mysterious circumstances.

All were taking part in research that could play an important role in developing weaponized pathogens to hit selected groups of humans–identifying them by race, age, and gender.

Eleven microbiologists mysteriously died over the span of just five months. Some of them are world leaders in developing weapons-grade biological plagues. Others are the best at figuring out how to stop millions from dying because of biological weapons. Still others, experts in the theory of bioterrorism.

Throw in a few Russian defectors, a few nervy U.S. biotech companies, a deranged assassin or two, a bit of Elvis, a couple of Satanists, a subtle hint of espionage, a big whack of imagination, and the plot is complete if a bit reminiscent of James Bond.

So what does any of it mean? Again we see statistics where the Odds of this happening are phenomenal and it is also interesting to not that these mysterious deaths are similar to what we read in movies and books about death squads that carry out deputization missions –Killing prominent figures who have information that if leaked out could be a threat to national security.

If it were to be discovered that these microbiologists were involved in creating a doomsday bioweapon this would be an ultra-compelling conspiracy now that we have lived through what appears to be a created plague… if anyone wanted to blow the whistle about the planned biological attack they would be targeted and killed.

Now let us discuss the recent allegations that the Deep State is being used to eliminate enemies of this administration.

Back in August Ground zero reported in the show Horrors of the Deep State Clown Car  that David Rothkopf, who was at one time under the tutelage of war criminal Henry Kissinger, was on MSNBC discussing how unelected technocrats work behind the scenes to thwart the will of the elected president. This shadow government, characterized by its occult politics, realizes that no one will challenge them or they will wind up being maligned, persecuted, and silenced.

It has been suspicious how the corporate media has, in very recent history, derided the concept of the Deep State as an outlandish invention of conspiracy theorists and Qanon followers.

The Daily Beast reported:

“During his presidency, Trump was regularly frustrated by the fact that government officials—appointees as well as career officials in the civil service, the military, the intelligence community and the foreign service—were an impediment [to his agenda].”

This also damns President Biden, because he is supposed to be the most powerful man in the world but since Trump had no need for a deep state — it appears that Biden is taking his marching orders from it.

In all likelihood, the CIA, probably in partnership with other non-governmental criminal elements, executed Kennedy in ’63. The Deep State provably manipulated and subverted Trump’s publicly stated objective to withdraw from Afghanistan.

Time Magazine openly bragged about the corporate state’s orchestrated campaign to manipulate the 2020 election in favor of Biden, which featured a cabal of corporate interests and Deep State political actors united to thwart the democratic process:

According to the TIME magazine’s article, The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election:

“For more than a year, a loosely organized coalition of operatives scrambled to shore up America’s institutions as they came under simultaneous attack from a remorseless pandemic and an autocratically inclined President… Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding… This is the inside story of the conspiracy to save the 2020 election… a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.”

Yes they conytrol the flow of Information and as I reported that FTX scandal has not become an investigative report for the mainstream news and I believe there is a reason. Because anyone with any power in the media have been told to back off and discourage any conspiracy theories about fraud and money laundering for the democratic party.

The sudden collapse of FTX has revealed the now-bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange to be many unpleasant things.

FTX stands accused of being a vehicle for Democrats to launder Ukrainian relief funds to their candidates in the 2022 midterms. That they contributed to propaganda campaigns supporting COVID vaccines –and other horrible things that I am sure are not limited to just Sam Bankman-Fried’s operation.

Ukraine received $18.2 billion of security commitments from the U.S. and an unknown amount of donations through a Ukrainian government aid website launched with FTX in March. The Ukrainian government invested some of that money in FTX.

Bankman-Fried then supposedly passed on $40 million of it to a handful of left-leaning super PACs. His deputy, Nishad Singh allegedly funneled another $7.4 million.

Conveniently the media report that there is no evidence so far in these accusations

.The most overhyped company in the history of a famously unregulated industry of crypto currency had plenty of reasons to curry favor with lawmakers in Washington, D.C.—on both sides of the aisle–regardless of what was going on in Ukraine. And while most of the $40 million personally spent by Bankman-Fried did go to support Democrats– they want to emphasize that he cared enough to put money forward for Operation Warp speed and other noble efforts to save the planet.

Now there appear to be some unexplained deaths on the radar that are reminiscent of the assassination of the eleven biological scientists– many of them wanting to come forward with information about a deadly plague in the works.

Perhaps there seem to be some Crypto Whizzes that want to talk but they can’t because many people don’t know that there have been too many that have died mysteriously recently.

Vyacheslav Taran, 53, the co-founder of trading and investing platform Libertex, died after his helicopter mysteriously crashed in a resort town near Monaco.

The vehicle plummeted on November 25 afternoon, killing Mr. Taran, who had lived in Monaco for a decade, as well as a veteran pilot.

But of course, the media claims that he was obviously suicided by the Russian Government as we know that Putin is known for eliminating energy, oil, finance, and shipping bosses as well oligarchs and millionaires.

You don’t cross Putin.

But there have been three other mysterious deaths in the Crypto community that are showing a pattern.

Tiantian Kullander, 30, died ‘in his sleep’ last week, while millionaire Nikolai Mushegian, 29, drowned on a Puerto Rico beach.

Mr. Kullander, the co-founder of the Hong Kong-based digital asset company Amber Group, ‘unexpectedly’ died on November 23, the company said.

Mr. Mushegian died only hours after tweeting that he heard the CIA and Mossad, America and Israel’s national intelligence agencies, were going to murder him.

Before the FTX scandal, there were two others, Gerald Cotten and Matthew Mellon, died without sharing the keys to crypto wallets worth hundreds of millions of dollars

Cotten’s demise was so mysterious and controversial that it prompted a Netflix documentary – Trust No One – into whether he faked his own death

Meanwhile Mellon – the ex-husband of Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon – suffered a heart attack while preparing to check into a drug rehab clinic in Mexico.

Nikolai Mushegian, died on October 28, hours after tweeting that he feared the CIA and Mossad were going to murder him. The troubled young millionaire had a history of mental health problems and his family do not believe there was any foul play.

But some of his associates have bought into the idea that his death was suspicious.

In a tweet hours before he died, Mushegian said: “CIA and Mossad and pedo elite are running some kind of sex trafficking entrapment blackmail ring out of Puerto Rico and Caribbean Islands.”

He was discovered by a surfer in the water at Ashford Beach on October 29, fully clothed and carrying his wallet.

‘They are going to frame me with a laptop planted by my ex [girlfriend] who was a spy. They will torture me to death.’

This is the world of Bill Gates’s moist nocturnal dreams, and those elite new green capitalists, royal families, and digital billionaires.  This is a world where the police state is justified because inside agents of the deep state believe that their job is to go after who they think poses a threat to the administration — but that is only empty rhetoric.

It appears however that the blunt show-off of bitcoin wealth has more to do with evangelism than the mere excuse of self-patting. Investors typically advertise their incomes, believing it would prompt more people to purchase the crypto-asset. While the support does help grow the network, it attracts troubles for the so-called do-gooders as well.

If these crypto millionaires were looking to come forward about FTX or other fraudulent acts involving the CIA or the government, their deaths would be part of an awesome conspiracy.

    Whizzes may have found how to “privately” secure decentralised public-blockchain by some new cryptographic paradigm? Transactions cannot be hacked/monitored when personal identifier is cloaked anonymity, rather than usual encryption.
