via Zero Hedge – Another dip to be bought as the weekend’s pump’n’dump in Bitcoin has led to yet another new record high this morning at $11,850.
Bitcoin’s market cap is now $200 billion…
This resurgence comes after a week of considerably more active propagandizing from the establishment.
As we noted previously, this week has seen a new group of establishmentarians jump on to the offensive against anti-decentralization, de-control, pro-freedom cryptocurrencies – urging bans, crackdowns, fatwas, taxation, creating their own cryptocurrencies, demanding citizens sell, and outright confiscation (this group includes governments world wide and their mainstream media mouthpieces)…
CBOE Global Markets said on Monday it would begin trading its bitcoin futures contracts, known as XBT futures, next Monday, and will offer free trading for the rest of the month to help draw in traders and create a market. Both the CBOE and its crosstown rival, CME Group, received permission last week from the CFTC to launch bitcoin derivatives as they go head-to-head in a battle to determine which exchange will come to dominate the market for bitcoin-linked derivatives, the Financial Times reported. CME Group, the world’s largest derivatives exchange, won’t launch its set of bitcoin derivatives until the following Monday.
Both exchanges are hoping that rising interest in the controversial cryptocurrency from Wall Street traders will in turn help drive demand for its new derivative products. A flood of interest has gripped the digital currency community as Bitcoin’s value has ballooned this year, at one point climbing 1,100%: Early on Monday, the digital currency rose to an all-time high just shy of $12,000 a coin – nearly six times its level from early April.
Many institutional investors have been eager to trade bitcoin, but are waiting for a more widely recognized, regulated market. Shares in both CME and CBOE have risen 9% since the end of October as they have firmed up their plans.
Ed Tilly, chief executive of CBOE, said there is “unprecedented” interest in bitcoin.
May 1st & 2nd, 2017 – via The Daily Coin – by Rory – On April 11th, the CME and England’s Royal Mint announced that they were testing a blockchain-based platform for trading gold. The product to be traded is a new crypto-coin called, Royal Mint Gold (“RMG”). The token will be issued by the Royal Mint and will represent the digitized version of 1 gram of gold. The gold will be stored in the Royal Mint’s vaults.
This news announcement, which was reported by The Daily Coin “CryptoGold and Thieving Banksters” certainly caught our attention. The fact that the CME is involved is enough to shine the light of truth on precious metals trading and ownership. This is because the concept of a “new alternative way to trade gold” is an extension of the “fractional gold and silver bullion market” that is driven by the paper derivative precious metals products traded on the Comex and the LBMA.
The truth is that this new “blockchain-based” technology is nothing more than a mechanism to divert investor money away from taking delivery of actual physical gold and silver in the form of Royal Mint bullion coins and LBMA bars, thereby removing the availability of physical gold and silver that can be used for hypothecation. Furthermore, the new product is an extension of the institutional-level fractional bullion system that utilizes Comex/LBMA paper gold and silver contracts in order to fabricate the illusion that the buyers of those contracts have purchased legal ownership the underlying bullion bars. Below is an excerpt from the Royal Mint’s website which promotes the new concept:
via The Verge by Russell Brandom – In five minutes, a single person faked a fingerprint and broke into my phone. It was simple, a trick the biometrics firm Vkansee has been playing at trade shows for months now. All it took was some dental mold to take a cast, some play-dough to fill it, and then a little trial and error to line up the play-dough on the fingerprint reader. We did it twice with the same print: once on an iPhone 6 and once on a Galaxy S6 Edge. As hacks go, it ranks just a little harder than steaming open a letter.
Of course, this particular method only works if you have help from the person whose fingerprint you need — and even then, it’s not a foolproof system. As luck would have it, my own fingertips turned out to be too smooth to leave an impression, so we had to rely on our director Phil Esposito, who had his thumb successfully molded and used it to unlock both phones.
A massive sting targeting society’s worst, who prey on children, ensared scores of people including a police officer, postal worker, and a teacher.
via The Free Thought Project – Trenton, NJ — Scores of people were arrested this week in a multi-agency sting that targeted child predators. “Operation Safety Net” was led by the New Jersey Regional Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and took down 79 predators, some of whom were attempting to purchase children as young as 4-years-old for sex.
Setting this sting apart from the multiple other stings throughout the country is the fact that it concentrated solely on children instead of simply busting willing adults paying for consensual sex.
Over the next 13 years, the rising tide of automation will force as many as 70 million workers in the United States to find another way to make money, a new study from the global consultancy McKinsey predicts.
That means nearly a third of the American workforce could face the need to pick up new skills or enter different fields in the near future, said the report’s co-author, Michael Chui, a partner at the McKinsey Global Institute who studies business and economics.
“We believe that everyone will need to do retraining over time,” he said.
The shift could displace people at every stage of their career, Chui said.
via Activist Post – Courts in both Florida and Michigan have admitted that the dangerous early-morning raids conducted by SWAT teams searching for cannabis were completely unwarranted, and the overeager actions of the officers involved made their searches illegal.
In one case in Florida, Collier County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at the home of Juan Falcon before 7 a.m. and within 20 seconds of knocking on the front door and announcing themselves, they broke down the door with a battering ram and threw two flash bang grenades inside the house. As a report from Reason noted, the purpose of the raid was to gain access to two dozen cannabis plants that were reportedly growing in Falcon’s backyard.
CHICAGO, Nov. 30, 2017 /via PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Researchers have found an imbalance in the brain chemistry of young people addicted to smartphones and the internet, according to a study presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).
According to a recent Pew Research Center study, 46 percent of Americans say they could not live without their smartphones. While this sentiment is clearly hyperbole, more and more people are becoming increasingly dependent on smartphones and other portable electronic devices for news, information, games, and even the occasional phone call.
Along with a growing concern that young people, in particular, may be spending too much time staring into their phones instead of interacting with others, come questions as to the immediate effects on the brain and the possible long-term consequences of such habits.

via ZeroHedge – A Bosnian Croat wartime commander died on Wednesday shortly after he drank poison, seconds after U.N. appeals judges upheld his 20-year sentence for war crimes against Bosnian Muslims.
Slobodan Praljak, 72, a former wartime leader, tilted back his head and took a swing from a flask or glass as the judge read out the verdict. The man’s defense lawyer then told the court that the accused had “taken poison.” The presiding judge stopped the proceedings and ordered a doctor to be called, Reuters reports.
“I just drank poison,” he said. “I am not a war criminal. I oppose this conviction.”
Praljak sat back down and slumped in his chair, a lawyer who was in the courtroom at the time said. The presiding judge suspended the hearing and called for a doctor. An ambulance was at the building and paramedics went to the courtroom.
This is a phone call to the Social Security Administration Office Main Number 1-800-772-1213. It is to discover what kinds of identity documents are acceptable for the Agents’ Identity in a POWER OF ATTORNEY (POA) where applying for a Social Security Card (which IS the Principal -or at least one iteration of many *strawman* principals).
In the beginning, they deny POAs. A Legalism is then read for their compliance and then the SSA accepts POAs. The SSA is then drawn out on the carpet for trying to first refuse POAs… as that is “unauthorized practice of law.”

via The Mind Unleashed – This month, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) asked for the court’s approval in bringing war crimes charges against US Military, and CIA leaders for their barbaric occupation of Afghanistan. Members of the Taliban and Afghan officials who have been installed as puppets were also named as suspects in the death and devastation that the country has experienced.
”[T]here is a reasonable basis to believe that war crimes and crimes against humanity have been committed in connection with the armed conflict in Afghanistan,” Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said in a statement.
Bensouda has been pushing for high ranking military officials to be prosecuted since November of last year when she released a report about evidence of war crimes in Afghanistan.
In the report, Bensouda wrote that there is “a reasonable basis to believe the war crimes of torture and ill-treatment had been committed by US military forces deployed to Afghanistan and in secret detention facilities operated by the Central Intelligence Agency, principally in the 2003-2004 period, although allegedly continuing in some cases until 2014.”
