Bitcoin is to all forms of currency and payment systems as the internet and email is to earlier forms of communication.
As the closure of the Silk Road website and the associated bitcoins I understand is currently remaining UNSEIZED demonstrates, someone’s bitcoins are under the owner’s DIRECT control – absolutely priceless.
To defraud anyone’s bitcoin any single conspiracy would need to operate over 50% of the bitcoin network – simply genius.
Bitcoin Climbs To Highest Since April, Led By Chinese Actions
“Perhaps most important was the activity out of China. The Chinese government has recently been more vocal in its ongoing campaign to see the dollar removed from global reserve status. While such calls for an international reserve note are generally assumed to refer to Special Drawing Rights issued by the IMF, it may have bolstered enthusiasm for bitcoin’s apolitical nature. Also out of China was news that Baidu, the world’s fifth largest website, is now accepting bitcoin for certain services.”
It is time for the BTC first adopters to feed off the people who create the federal reserve note rather than the other way round.
Money that under YOUR control ? Priceless.
Why Bitcoin IS Intrinsically Valuable
“Bitcoin is measured by its own finite quantity and valued for its intrinsically valuable function. The Bitcoin protocol has immense intrinsic valuable as a self-regulating frictionless payment network affordable to almost anyone.”
To the customers of BTC 24 Ltd. Bitcoin-24.com (2013-10-10)
“In this context, it must first be stated that the situation in Poland and the approach adopted by the Polish Public Prosecutor’s Office appears increasingly bleak and, from the perspective of the rule of law, no longer reconcilable.”
“The Polish Public Prosecutor’s Office has, till date, not permitted our clients Polish lawyers to scrutinise the files. We are, therefore,
dependent upon statements made by the Polish Public Prosecutor’s Office to the Polish lawyers, since the former party comments on the state of affairs mostly in discussions – if at all. For this reason, it is also beyond difficult to draw legal inferences from these constantly changing statements and to develop strategies for subjecting the matter to definitive legal clarification and solution.”
“Nevertheless, the court has, for the time being, upheld the confiscation, noting that the Public Prosecutor should, in future, coordinate with the our client’s Polish lawyers and communicate more openly. However, the court appears not to be ready to reveal the real basis for the confiscation. These actions are hardly comprehensible and show the judiciary in Poland in a hugely unfavourable light.”
“It is gradually becoming evident that the Polish Public Prosecutor’s Office conjures up new allegations out of a hat whenever all reasons for confiscation are refuted and, thus, delays the matter.”
Translation: they are making this s**t up as they go along.
What, for the love of god, is happening to the rule of law ?
Keiser Report: Post-Kaboom Period (E512)
“In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert, discuss post-kaboom period of a de-Americanized world where risk is redistributed and financial systems are re-architected away from the daisy chains of credit without collateral. In the second half, Max interviews Leo Johnson, co-author of Turnaround Challenge: Business and the City of the Future about the three possible cities of the future: Petropolis, Cyburbia or Distributed City.”
1m10s “As I’ve said right here on Keiser Report, many times, it’s time to re-architect this by starting our own true, global credit rating agency. Oh my god, Stacy Herbert, this is the beginning of the true insurrection.”
9m50s “Right, we covered bitcoin first of all new organisation going back several years.”
10m25s“Well, in fact you don’t need a credit rating agency, a corruptible one to monitor and rate any bitcoin transactions because the community, the global community does it with triple book entry accounting.”
11m25s “They saw that Silk Road had $100M of bitcoin so they went in there and they tried to steal it and the great thing is that the FBI and the NSA are incapable of cracking the protocol to steal that money which shows finally that bitcoin is bigger than any government, any central government, any NSA and this is why people now, the bitcoin price skyrocketed after the FBI did a mea culpa and said we’re too stupid to figure this thing out.”

JFK Vs The Federal Reserve
“On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, <executiveorder11110.htm>Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. The Christian Law Fellowship has exhaustively researched this matter through the Federal Register and Library of Congress. We can now safely conclude that this Executive Order has never been repealed, amended, or superceded by any subsequent Executive Order. In simple terms, it is still valid.”

Barclays fund ‘lowered’ Libor for profit – court papers
“An investment fund owned and run by Barclays attempted to manipulate UK borrowing rates for its own profit, according to an internal investigation conducted by the bank cited in court papers.”
“A Singapore-based trader at the Ricardo Master Fund, an investment vehicle whose only investor was Barclay, is alleged to have asked colleagues in London to lower the lender’s sterling-denominated Libor submissions to boost the fund’s returns.”
“According to a record of an internal investigation sent to the Singapore Monetary Authority, Mr Lee is alleged to have told Ian Pike and John Scammell, two London-based sterling Libor submitters, to “go get libor down”, to which Mr Pike responded “I’ll do my best boss”.”

Who Sank Detroit – the “Hip Hop Mayor” or Wall Street? … the $1.4 billion derivatives deal
“Kwame Kilpatrick, Detroit’s former “Hip Hop Mayor,” emerged from behind bars last week, just long enough to be re-embedded in the public mind as the burly, 6’4” personification of all that is wrong with “urban” – i.e. Black – America. The judge sentenced him to 28 years on two dozen counts of racketeering, extortion, bribery and fraud that may have cost the city some tens of millions of dollars during his eight years in office. Yet, the mega-swindle of his career, the $1.4 billion derivatives deal that that could cost Detroit twice that much over the next two decades and represents one-fifth of the city’s total obligations to creditors, appears nowhere in the indictment or sentencing.”

Why ‘I Have Nothing to Hide’ Is the Wrong Way to Think About Surveillance
“If the federal government had access to every email you’ve ever written and every phone call you’ve ever made, it’s almost certain that they could find something you’ve done which violates a provision in the 27,000 pages of federal statues or 10,000 administrative regulations. You probably do have something to hide, you just don’t know it yet.”

But even when relieved of the bailout burden, there are still years of punishing austerity ahead for Ireland.”

The Scale Of Australian Censorship Revealed by Schapelle Corby Case
“Ultimately, a whole raft of material surfaced, which proved, not only that she was entirely innocent, but that Australian ministers, and the Australian Federal Police (AFP), had wilfully withheld the vital primary evidence, had deprived her of the funds for an additional appeal, had managed public opinion to close the political aspects, and had embarked on a lengthy series of abusive and illegal acts against her.”
“As reported last week by Mathaba News, an entire cache of government documents has been published on the Internet, which conclusively confirms the validity of these statements. It is an astonishing collection of official data, which self-pens utter contempt for a human life, and the flagrant disregard of the integrity of state.”
“Incredibly, the existence of this raw material has never been reported in Australia.”
