CNN Panel Agrees With Trump, 1765 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Nobel Gold & Silver: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- https://goo.gl/kx2yzW Or Call - 888-596-7916 Good morning, Im still reporting on: CNN Panel Agrees With Trump, 1765 Synopsis: Would he castigate Arizona Sen. John McCain or his fellow Sen. Jeff Flake? Would he mention Charlottesville, after managing to change the subject the night before with his excellent speech at Fort Myer on Afghanistan. Have a significant number Republicans turned on him so that they will vote to censure him? Would the anarchist domestic terror group Antifa attack the crowds in Phoenix? Trump ignored all of that and gave an off-script Trumpian performance that did what the pundits would surely have called suicidal. But to the average American, it was President Trump at his best. Thats why we love him, because he tells us the truth. And another thing the polls. Well, weve already proven that the polls are fake as a Clinton 3-dollar bill. But here is the ultimate poll a recent panel on CNN. [insert] Thats right. We dont see anything wrong with Trumps response to Charottesville. Anyone with an ounce of common sense sees right through this trying to paint him as a Nazi, when the real Nazis are the Soros-paid ones dressed in black who were outside Trumps venue last night. The vast majority of the American public sees the association between Isis blowing up historic artifacts in the Middle East Isis and these Soros Nazis trying to get some TV face time by destroying any piece of American history they can get their hands on here. I mean the leader of the group that illegally took down the statue in Durham, NC last week was a North Korean communist. Pleeeease!

What in the world is going on? Part 4 "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

In this interview below Paul Craig Roberts describes the neo-conservative ideology that has driven geopolitics since the end of World War II, and discusses the elite agenda, the prospects for the Trump presidency, and the US economy.

He comes closer than in his earlier statements to highlighting the key control mechanism of dominationthe global money system, but still falls a bit short, as indicated by his statement that if there is a severe economic crisis in the US, the Federal Reserve will have to abandon the banks and save the dollar.

On that I disagree. Roberts seem not to realize that the FED, as well as virtually all of the other central banks of the various countries around the world, is controlled by the big transnational banks, and that they work together to, as Prof. Carroll Quigley said, create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.

The banking elite thereby control not only the dollar, but all of the other major world currencies. If the inflation rates or unemployment rates become too high in one country, the central banks can spread the misery around by monetizing various securities and manipulating interest rates and currency exchange rates.

For the past several decades the US dollar has been their primary monetary tool, but the dollar is not the be all and end all in their schemes. You can be sure that the banking elite always have a plan. At some time in the not too distant future when the dollar has outlived its usefulness, it will be replaced by a single global currency that will give the elite even tighter control over financial, economic, and political affairs around the globe.

The flies in the ointment of their plan are (1) a few governments that are bent on steering an independent monetary and financial course, and (2) the emergence of independent, non-governmental and decentralized exchange mechanisms and currencies. In the first case, Iraq under Saddam Hussein and Libya under Gaddafi were easily disposed of (but at tremendous costs). Russia and China pose a much bigger problem for the elite, hence the stalemate in Syria and the drum beat of propaganda against Putin and the fear mongering against the Chinese. With regard to alternative exchange mechanisms, the proliferation of virtual commodities like Bitcoin and others suggests that elite control may be vulnerable to innovative and disruptive technologies. But these virtual commodities mark only the beginning of the new...

Central Bank of Papua New Guinea Adopts Blockchain Technology Bitcoin Magazine

Central Bank of Papua New Guinea Adopts Blockchain Technology

The number of countries with banks experimenting with blockchain technology is growing rapidly. The Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea (PNG), north of Australia, has joined the movement with its own central Bank of Papua New Guinea running blockchain trials.

Central Bank Governor Loi Bakani, known as a champion of new technologies as a way to enable financial inclusion, recently hosted a conference to showcase his countrys commitment to blockchain technology, with participants from at home and around the world, including Abt Associates, Paycase, Othera, IDbox, Pacific Markets, UCash, Seso and ADCCA.

At the conference, Bakani described the blockchain trials underway at the Bank of PNG and introduced the PNG Digital Commerce and Cryptocurrency Association for the growing number of Papua New Guinea tech entrepreneurs and businesses interested in blockchain technology.

Bakani said, This will allow PNG to join the Global Blockchain Forum, which gets PNG a cutting edge in discussions about Blockchain at a global level, along with Australia, Canada, U.S.A., Dubai, UK and Japan. There is no reason why PNG cant be a leader for emerging markets.

There are already central banks experimenting with blockchain technology around the world, including Bank of America, HSBC, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Bank of England, People's Bank of China, Bank of Canada, the National Bank of Cambodia, and the Central Bank of India.

Elizabeth Genia, Assistant Governor of the central Bank of PNG said, It is the new innovations that can change peoples lives almost 85 percent of our people live outside the banking system.

According to Abt Associates Jane Thomason, who helped manage the conference, 85 percent of PNG has little or no access to banking services and accounts, and the island is among the most expensive remittance corridors in the world, with nearly 10 percent of all funds transferred going to fees alone.

Thomason told the conference that blockchain-based technologies offer developing nations a way to leapfrog conventional technological advancements, similar to the adoption of cell phones in much of the world.

How the Blockstream Satellite Will Drive Bitcoin Adoption: An Interview with Adam Back and Chris Cook Bitcoin Magazine

How the Blockstream Satellite Will Drive Bitcoin Adoption: An Interview With Adam Back and Chris Cook

Last week Bitcoin Magazine covered the announcement of Blockstream Satellite, a new service that broadcasts real-time Bitcoin blockchain data from satellites in space to almost everyone on the planet. Currently Blockstream Satellite covers across two-thirds of the Earth, and service expansions are in the works.

Todays launch of Blockstream Satellite gives even more people on the planet the choice to participate in Bitcoin, said Blockstream co-founder and CEO Adam Back, when the announcement was made. With more users accessing the Bitcoin blockchain with the free broadcast from Blockstream Satellite, we expect the global reach to drive more adoption and use cases for Bitcoin, while strengthening the overall robustness of the network.

The idea of streaming the Bitcoin blockchain to the whole planet from satellites in space had previously been proposed by Jeff Garzik, but Blockstreams implementation introduces some interesting tweaks: It relies on existing commercial satellites already in orbit and leverages open-source software, namely GNU Radio and FIBRE, to reduce costs.

The announcement of the Blockstream Satellite has been received with considerable interest from both the blockchain and space communities, but also with doubts and lingering questions. Bitcoin Magazine reached out to Adam Back and Chris Cook, Head of Satellite at Blockstream, to find out more.


You are essentially using existing commercial satellites as relays. Why is this approach better than building, launching and operating your own satellites, now that cubesats and cheaper cubesat launch systems permit doing so cost effectively?

Chris Cook: While there have been many recent reductions in the cost of cubesats and other low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, it is still a considerably more expensive venture than using existing satellites. As cubesats are not geosynchronous, they are always moving overhead. This means that you need many of them for complete global coverage.

Additionally, many cubesats have a lifetime of only a few months before they fall out of orbit. Either you need to continuously replenish them or you have to boost them into higher orbit, both of which increase costs.

Finally, we have not entirely dismissed the idea of launching our own satellites. However, deploying a global satellite network with existing...

Visa Files Patent for Blockchain-Based Digital Asset Network Bitcoin Magazine

Visa Files Patent for Blockchain-Based Digital Asset Network

Last week, the United States Patent and Trade Office (USPTO) published the details of Visas new patent application. The credit card giants plans for the digital asset network are quite broad; however, it might be possible that the company is planning to file a patent for the Visa B2B Connect.

The blockchain enterprise company Chain and Visa announced their new partnership in October 2016, in which the two firms decided to develop a simple, fast and secure way to process B2B payments globally. The Visa B2B Connect platforms pilot is expected to launch in 2017, thus indicating a connection between the USPTO digital asset network patent and the new B2B solution.

A method and system are provided for transferring digital assets in a digital asset network. Network users can be centrally enrolled and screened for compliance. Standardized transfer processes and unique identifiers can provide a transparent and direct transfer process. Digital assets can include sufficient information for ensuring that a value will be provided, including one or more digital signatures, such that value can be made immediately available to recipients, the four Visa employees who filed the patent summarized.

The patent application details the major issue financial institutes are facing with third parties. According to Visa, using third-party payment or transfer providers during wire transfers can create uncertainty in the system, resulting in the banks adding extra days to complete a transfer. Furthermore, this uncertainty can also result in higher costs. The writers of the document added that, in reality, there are often more than three parties participating in a single transaction.

Most financial institutions only have a few correspondent bank relationships. Thus, for an international wire, it is likely that the sending financial institution does not have a direct correspondent bank relationship with the receiving financial institution.

When this lack of relationship is spread among three or more parties across international jurisdictions, the process becomes even more complicated and costly.

For example, an international transfer may involve one or more domestic transfers in the sender's country, an international transfer and one or more domestic transfer's in the recipient's country before finally reaching the recipient's account.

Segregated Witness Activates on Bitcoin: This is What to Expect Bitcoin Magazine

segwit acti.jpg

The Segregated Witness (SegWit) soft fork has activated on the Bitcoin network.

As of block height 481,824, found at 1:57 UTC by BTCC, all SegWit ready nodes started enforcing the new SegWit consensus rules. As Bitcoins biggest protocol upgrade to date, this introduces a whole new data structure, which changes the appearance of Bitcoin blocks for upgraded nodes while non-upgraded nodes should continue to function as normal.

More concretely, SegWit activation means that Bitcoins block size limit is replaced by a block weight limit, which allows for blocks up to 4 megabytes in size. Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, SegWit transactions wont suffer from the malleability bug, which in turn enables advanced second-layer protocols like the Lightning Network, atomic swaps, MAST, and more.

Heres what to expect for the next couple of hours, days, weeks, months and beyond

The Block Size Limit Becomes a Block Weight Limit

Bitcoin blocks now have a weight limit instead of a size limit. Depending on the types of transactions included, this means that blocks can get up to 4 megabytes big though some 2 megabytes is a more realistic maximum. This should decrease network fees for users, and speed up transaction confirmation times.

However, this doesnt mean that all blocks will immediately bump to 2 megabytes in size today. For a transaction to utilize the added space, it must be sent from a SegWit address (or more accurately, a Segwit output) not just to a SegWit address.

At the time of activation, of course, no bitcoins were locked up in SegWit addresses whatsoever. That wasnt possible up till now. So at the very least, bitcoins must be spent once to a SegWit address once first. Only when theyre spent again will they benefit from the extra space.

Additionally, wallets and other applications need to be ready to accept SegWit transactions. Some wallets, like GreenAddress, may offer this option on day one, or shortly thereafter. We had this in testnet on by default for a very long time now, GreenAddress developer Lawrence Nahum told Bitcoin Magazine. Well make it's available almost immediately after activation; we just want to make sure activation is smooth before we enable it.

Similarly, large Bitcoin service providers could start...

"NYTIMES: Corporations Moral Voice Of America" Soviet America Continues Thrashing "IndyWatch Feed World"

In an op ed, The New York Times is asserting that American corporations, have become the "moral" voice of the United States (archived). These nominally private socialist extensions of the leftist Hussein Bahamas flavored pantsuit USG in exile have become more overtly political since Hussein Bahamas was deposed by elected US President Donald Trump.

These corporations including McDonalds, Walmart, and Microsoft have historically had a symbiotic relationship with the socialist USG with each feeding the other in a cycle that grows more Inca while making any quality of life far more difficult to achieve in the United Soviet of America.

The battle over the Great Again has brought to light numerous truths about the Soviet America which the Soviets would have preferred to conceal, if only their desperation didn't demand they reveal themselves for what they are. The hard truth is that Amazon, Warren Buffett, and McDonalds require socialism and cultural Marxism in a way that not even the most gender weird marijuana laced KKKalifornian university "professor" does. Expect more emergent weird as traditional adversaries like the New York Times and "the corporations" reveal they were in this together the whole time. Soviet America continues thrashing.

WikiHow Users Can Now Secure Their Online Identities with Civic Bitcoin Magazine

WikiHow Users Can Now Secure Their Online Identities with Civic

Blockchain-driven digital identity fraud firm Civic has partnered up with wikiHow to provide its user base with login security.

The partnership will mean that around 150 million monthly wikiHow users will now able to use Civics identity platform to log in securely with a verified identity, without needing a username and password.

Vinny Lingham, CEO of Civic, said in a statement: We are pleased to officially welcome wikiHow to Civics Partner Network. This collaboration illustrates our continuing, strong momentum in building our ecosystem for on-demand, secure and low-cost access to identity verification services.

Civic says it will help improve wikiHows user experience, providing users with a more secure account creation and login process.

WikiHow is an open source online how-to platform that operates in 87 different languages. Its focus is on teaching anyone in the world how to do anything in a collaborative, shared-learning environment.

The advantage for wikiHow in this collaboration with Civic is that it can now verify that user accounts are created using true identities and it wont have to deal with security hassles associated with weak passwords and password resets. All user data is encrypted in the Civic app on the users device and never stored by Civic or wikiHow.

"Working with Civic, wikiHow provides greater trust and security to its users," Lingham told Bitcoin Magazine. "With the Secure Identity Platform, Civic helps ensure all wikiHow accounts are created by the true owner of the identity data  which ultimately ensures that wikiHow's how-tos are created and edited by verified users."

"wikiHow is partnering with Civic because we believe in their long-term goal of decentralized identity," said Jack Herrick, CEO of wikiHow in a statement. "We hope to live in a future where people, not corporations, control their own personal information."

In an earlier interview with Bitcoin Magazine, Lingham talked about the problem of distributed mobile identity. This is what we are focusing on now, he said, to build the worlds largest identity platform, powered by technology that decentralizes and secures consumer identity information.

In June Civic sold $33 million in ICO tokens. Civic tokens provided access to the product while allowing token holders to benefit from its network effect.

The company also received $2.75 million in funding via Social Leverage, an early-stage seed investment fund, as we...

CORION Bridging the gap between the crypto and the real world "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain tech have slowly but steadily earned their place in many technological verticals and contributed to high-level disruption in these industries. However, when it comes to their day to day applications in real life, they are yet to realize their full potential. The barriers that are hindering the growth and use of cryptocurrencies are none other than their fundamental qualities that power them and make them unique. Their limited supply is a double edged sword it inevitably drives up value which results in high volatility. This makes their use as means of payment questionable in the day to day life. Adding to volatility, the negative publicity garnered due to the hacking of exchanges, regulatory issues, and other scams has also contributed to the general publics fear of taking a step towards using the crypto.

However, CORION is now here to bridge this gap and make cryptocurrency accessible to general public. Lets dive deep into how CORION team is planning to do the same.

What is CORION?

CORION, which stands for Capital Optimized Reward Incentive Online Network, is a multifunctional platform that enables businesses and individuals with a mutual interest to connect over a worldwide decentralized network. This full-service multi functional blockchain platform was developed on Ethereum Classic blockchain and consists of several smart contracts that are apt for real world applications. The platform offers its own token- CORION coins which are to be used as the method of payment for services provided. These tokens are programmed to be stable against US dollar and hence eliminate the volatility worries associated with standard cryptocurrencies. Their supply is also demand based, and new coins are distributed amongst the community everyday basing on the demand.

corion p2p

The platform has a built in P2P exchange that allows for secure trading and exchange of digital assets, safeguarded from hackers and other security concerns. As all the volatility and security concerns are being annulled on CORION, it is indeed the right platform even for amateur users to indulge in cryptocurrencies.
