FAKE SATOSHI NAKAMOTO TRYING TO PATENT ALL SORTS OF BITCOIN RELATED IDEAS

Earlier this week I got knocked out by some pretty serious food poisoning. The few times I would try to do some work or pop in on Twitter, all I was seeing was people mocking the London Review of Books' somewhat insane 35,000-word-long profile of Craig Wright, the guy who earlier this year claimed to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto. While he even convinced Gavin Andresen (the guy who really turned Nakamoto's original work into actual Bitcoin), many others quickly pointed out that Wright's "proof" appeared to be a giant scam. Why write a 35,000-word profile on a guy who isn't Satoshi Nakamoto? I don't know, but thankfully the food poisoning and the few snarky tweets I saw saved me from digging into the entire thing and wasting an afternoon. Fusion posted a much shorter summary of the piece, in case you're wondering.

Trump: "This Election Will Decide Whether We Are Ruled by the People, or by the Politicians"

Donald Trump slammed Hillary Clinton today for perfecting "the politics of personal profit and theft," and running the State Department "like her own personal hedge fund – doing favors for oppressive regimes, and many others, in exchange for cash."

"Here is my promise to the American voter," Trump said. "If I am elected President, I will end the special interest monopoly in Washington, D.C."

Trump continued: "The other candidate in this race has spent her entire life making money for special interests – and taking money from special interests.

"She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund – doing favors for oppressive regimes, and many others, in exchange for cash."

The EU’s betrayal of Britain’s fishing industry

In the Seventies, Britain and Greenland held around 80 percent of fish stocks. In comparison, nations such as France, Spain and Italy had destroyed stocks in the Mediterranean.

With such a small population so reliant on one industry, Greenland saw no other option but to leave the EU. How is the nation doing now? Having ignored the scaremongers at the time, the islanders have found their average income on par with other rich Northern European states, and they have benefited from the lack of EU red tape.

In addition, Greenland successfully negotiated favourable terms for their exit, and now enjoy favourable trade deals with the EU. If a nation of 57,000 can do it, why do we often hear that Britain, a nation of 65 million, cannot do the same?

Iceland's fishing industry 'better off outside' EU

Iceland's fishing minister has said the country would "never join the European Union" because the country is thriving outside.

The country applied to join the EU in 2009, but dropped the application last year.

A key factor, said Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson, was the desire to retain control over fishing grounds.

The nation now has one of the most modern and productive fishing industries in the world.

How Joining the EU led to a Big Decline in UK Industry

When the UK joined the EU we had a 45 million tonnes a year steel industry. Today we are battling to save an 11 million tonnes industry.

When we joined the EU we had a 400,000 tonnes a year aluminium industry. Today we have just 43,000 tonnes of capacity left.

When we joined the EU we had 20 million tonnes of cement capacity. Today we have 12 million tonnes.

Just before we joined the EEC in 1971 we had a 1 million tonnes a year fishing industry. Today we have 600,000 tonnes.

The Roots of Today’s Tyranny: Total Information Awareness

By Derrick Broze

To understand the roots of the oppression, erosion of liberties, and invasion of privacy that has become the new norm for Americans, we must go back to the days following the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

Immediately following the attacks of September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush was promising Americans that he would exact revenge on those who dare attack the empire. Dubya’s program of “Shock and Awe” gave the American public an upfront look at what the U.S. military was prepared to do to the enemies of “freedom and democracy.” The bombing of Iraq was only the beginning of a larger conflict that the Bush Administration dubbed “The Global War on Terror.”

The War on Terror did not end in the physical battlefield, however...

Advocate Warns: "Male Domestic Violence Victims Should Not Seek Help in San Diego or Anywhere Else"

Paul Elam of 'An Ear for Men' has a very interesting video analysis of the San Diego, CA District Attorney's recent video targeting domestic violence victims. During the video, he points out an undeniable bias against men, as well as a very interesting study which notes "286 scholarly investigations, 221 empirical studies and 65 reviews and/or analyses, which demonstrate that women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners. The aggregate sample size in the reviewed studies exceeds 371,600. [Martin S. Fiebert, Department of Psychology, Cal State University, Long Beach]
