Boris Johnson Wanted Tucker Carlson To Pay Him $1 Million In Bitcoin For An Interview

Every once in awhile the veil is pierced and the world gets a glimpse into the inner workings of the power structure. Earlier today we were blessed with a slight piercing of the veil when Tucker Carlson told Glenn Beck the saga of his attempts to get former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to sit down for an interview to discuss Ukraine and Tucker's recent trip to Russia. Apparently Boris has been playing hard to get and wants Tucker to pay him $1,000,000 before agreeing to an interview.

This highlights just how sleezy your run-of-the-mill politician is. Instead of being a man and agreeing to a conversation in which he can engage in an honest exploration of competing ideas for the sake of providing the public with better context that could equip them with better knowledge to arrive at a more informed opinion on the topics at hand, it appears that Boris is more interested in a fat pay day. I guess $1,000,000 for one to two hours of work isn't a bad gig if you can get it, but this outrageous ask was more likely a way to create a scapegoat. "I was open to sitting down for a conversation but he wasn't willing to pay my rate!"

One of the interesting details that Tucker disclosed is the fact that Boris is demanding that his fee be paid in "US dollars, gold or bitcoin."

A former Prime Minister doesn't even want to accept pounds, which should tell you all you need to know about that particular cuck buck. But, alas, that's not the point of this article. Boris Johnson, despite being a warmongering statist who would like to shovel billions of more dollars toward the war in Ukraine, is a man of good taste in the arena of pay-to-play currencies. If he's going to risk getting embarrassed in front of a global audience he might as well walk away with some good money. The fact that he has bitcoin as one of his payment options is indicative of two things; he understands the best way to preserve his wealth over the long-term and bitcoin is more respected in the eyes of people who understand the incumbent monetary system than most people realize.

Bitcoin becoming mainstream pay-to-play money is a very bullish indicator. Boris Johnson being part of a political class that has embarked on a coordinated effort over the last decade-and-a-half to label bitcoin as the currency of drug dealers and money launderers is the cherry on top of this particular story. It proves that the political class deals in propaganda seeped in pure projection. They will be the first to attempt to drive the Common Man away from bitcoin and even go as far as to try to prevent him from accessing it if he is so willing while also demanding it in payment for themselves.

That is where the signal lies. Despite what many in the political class would attempt to have you believe, they understand that bitcoin is better money. This is an undeniable fact. There will only ever be 21,000,000 bitcoin. It is divisible. It is portable (over the Internet). It is easy and cheap to verify. It is extremely hard to corrupt. It is impossible to centrally control. And it is running in a race with a bunch of chronically ill competitors. Every fiat currency is mathematically destined to be debased into oblivion. Precious metals are woefully centralized and impractical for facilitating day-to-day trade. As Michael Saylor likes to day, there is no second best. Most of the world doesn't realize this fact yet, but it doesn't negate the fact that it is a fact. Bitcoin is the best money in the world and that is an objective statement.

Boris Johnson understands this and many others like him do as well. They would like you to believe otherwise because their careers are wholly dependent on making everyone believe that the money they can print at will is the best money. Their ability to print that money at the snap of a finger is what seeds all of their power and control.

Their efforts to prevent bitcoin's proliferation will be futile in the end. They can't help but slowly kill themselves via 1,000 cuts and today's piercing of the veil was just one slash of many more to come.

Final thought...

My son's favorite game at the moment is to make me begin reciting the alphabet so that he can insert a random word between "f" and "g". "A-B-C-D-E-F-TOILET-PAPER-G" doesn't really flow well, but the giggle fits will fill your heart.
