The FISA Memo, Obama and the Election that Almost Wasn’t

“Round up the usual suspects,” will be as far as the Democrats will be willing to go in the wake of the FISA memo’s release. There is nothing in that memo that anyone following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation doesn’t already know. All the memo does is corroborate the bread crumbs left behind by a … Continue reading The FISA Memo, Obama and the Election that Almost Wasn’t

The FISA Memo is Just the Beginning of Fighting the Swamp

The FISA memo was released by the White House today.  Completely unredacted.  The fight to keep this memo out of the public eye has been intense.  And since it’s existence was made known it has clarified our domestic politics in a way that few objects ever have.

Roger Ver and his championing Bitcoin Cash was used as a stalking horse to destroy Bitcoin's ability to function in the marketplace. But, it is this very kind of attack that betrays the weakness of their position. The … Continue reading The War on Bitcoin is Proof Crypto is Winning

Turkey vs. the Kurds – The New Syrian Proxy War

The more I read the headlines the more I hope our nukes are no longer at Incerlik air base in Turkey.  U.S. policy in Syria has morphed into this zombie strategy of advancing the “Assad Must Go” no matter what. No matter how many times the pro-Assad coalition shoots our goals in the head, the … Continue reading Turkey vs. the Kurds – The New Syrian Proxy War

AI Censorship and the Power of Steem to Preserve Truth

Just read a great article by Caitlin Johnstone over at Medium where she discusses the automation of censorship tools by companies like Twitter and Google. Putting paid Julian Assange's warning last year on this, Ms. Johnstone details just some of the abuses that Twitter and Google engaged in to subtly and not-so-subtly shift public perception of major … Continue reading AI Censorship and the Power of Steem to Preserve Truth
