Two weeks until the election. Internet access is blocked for Wikileaks Assange because Ecuador’s leadership prefers Clinton over Trump. The move basically admits Assange is the single most influential political figure in the world. The establishment is scared enough to take drastic measures.

The Pentagon Changes Its Story: Military No Longer Sure Yemeni Rebels Attacked A US Ship

Last Thursday the Pentagon claimed that the US Navy’s USS Mason was the victim of two consecutive missile attacks launched by Houthi rebel forces. The USS Nitze retaliated, launching several Tomahawk cruise missiles at radar installations in Yemen.

Pentagon Spokesman Peter Cook stopped short of actually blaming the Houthis and actually stated, “We don’t know who was pulling the trigger specifically.” But the US retaliated nonetheless.

Now, only a few days later, the story has changed. According to Reuters, the Pentagon declined to say whether the USS Mason had been targeted AT ALL by inbound missiles from Yemen, and said that a review was underway to determine what really happened.

“We are still assessing the situation. There are still some aspects to this that we are trying to clarify for ourselves given the threat – the potential threat – to our people,” Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook told a news briefing.

“We would like to be a catalyst for taking cash out of the system,” Cook said. “We don’t think the consumer particularly likes cash.”

Imagine being in a store buying food and diapers for your baby and your digital credits are disabled. If cash was banned, you’re at the mercy of the technology and its administrators. Yes, digital payments are more efficient, but they should always remain voluntary.

Lyn Ulbricht interview

Lyn Ulbricht is the mother of the creator of the original Silk Road market, Ross Ulbricht. Since his arrest in 2013, Lyn has been working tirelessly to defend her son. In May 2015, Ross, an Eagle Scout with no priors, was sentenced to life in prison. Oral arguments for his appeal began October 6th.

Our mission is to have voluntary interaction between individuals be the foundation of human civilization.”

First trial as unfair:

  • the defense wasn’t allowed to talk about corrupt agents who stole from Silk Road
  • not allowed to call expert witnesses like Andreas Antonopoulos
  • not allowed to examine the digital evidence against Ross.
  • And Ross was sentenced to prison sentence longer than the laws require.

A 2014 study by the Univ. of Manchester & Univ. of Montreal found that Silk Road actually reduced violence in the illegal drug trade. The study: The Cryptomarket ‘Silk Road’ as a Paradigm Shifting Criminal Innovation

“In the drugs cryptomarket era, having good customer service and writing skills may be more important than muscles and face-to-face connections.”
