Mike Krieger Warns “We Live In Revolutionary Times”

Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, The most recent, and perhaps most important, network challenge to hierarchy comes with the advent of virtual currencies and payment systems like Bitcoin. Since ancient times, states have reaped considerable benefits from monopolizing or at least regulating the money created within their borders. It remains to be seen how big a challenge Bitcoin poses to the system of national fiat currencies that has evolved since the 1970s and, in particular, how big a challenge it poses to the “exorbitant privilege” enjoyed by the United States as the issuer of the world’s dominant reserve (and transaction) currency. But it would be unwise to assume, as some do, that it poses no challenge at all.   Clashes between hierarchies and networks are not new ...

Russia Tried To Undermine Trump After The Election

Following today’s Senate Judiciary panel hearings with social media executives, the establishment’s ‘Russians colluded with Trump’ narrative is hanging but all but the thinnest of threads. Having shown that so-called ‘Russian actors’ “were trying to create discord between Americans,” during the election – which politicians attempted to position as “directed against Clinton,” top lawyers from Facebook and Twitter said Tuesday that Russian-linked posts and advertisements placed on the social networks after Election Day sought to sow doubt about President Donald Trump’s victory. As we showed earlier, sixteen thousand Facebook users said that they planned to attend a Trump protest on Nov. 12, 2016 organized by the Facebook...

NYC Terror Suspect Was “Very Friendly” Uber Driver, Friend Claims

It’s been less than two hours since police identified the suspect in today’s Halloween terror attack in NYC as 29-year-old Uzbek national Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, and already the New York Post has published an interview with a friend of the suspected terrorist who reportedly expressed complete shock when told his friend had killed 8 people and injured more than a dozen others in what some sources described as the deadliest terror attack in NYC since 9/11. Kobiljon Matkarov, 37, and a fellow Uzbek native, described Saipov as a “very friendly” man who worked for Uber. Matkarov met Saipov in Florida about five years ago shortly after he came over from Uzbekistan. The two connected over their mutual heritage, with Matkarov adding that Saipov had no terrorist conne...

The Delays Begin: Release Of Republican Tax Bill Postponed Until Thursday

In our comprehensive review of the GOP tax bill which was scheduled to be unveiled tomorrow, we noted the following key caveat  “There are a lot of unknowns in this process, the biggest of which – of course – is whether the bill will be delayed from its scheduled Wednesday appearance.” In retrospect, and in light of the conflicting reports about what may be contained in the final draft of the bill, this has proved prophetic because moments ago, Axios reported that week’s 2nd biggest events – after Trump’s announcement of Jay Powell as the next Fed chair – the release of the Republican tax bill is being postponed by at least one day, from Wednesday to Thursday. The delay of the scheduled release, by the House Ways and Means Committee, reveals ...

Israel’s New “Soros Bill” Aims To Stop Funds From ‘Anti-Semitic’ Donors

Having made no friends this week with his McCarthyite ‘blacklist’ of potential Russia-sympathizers, and facing bans and probes throughout eastern Europe (for his ‘Open Society’ actions), bilionaire investor George Soros has a new enemy – Isarel! As Haaretz’ Jonathan Lis reports, MK Miki Zohar (Likud) announced on Monday that he planned to submit a bill that would make it harder for leftist organizations to receive funding from organizations considered hostile to Israel. He said the bill, named for mogul George Soros, won the approval of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (but, associates of Netanyahu couldn’t say on Monday whether the prime minister would support the proposed law in the Knesset).   Its exact wording has yet to be disclosed.   Zohar said t...
