$3.5 billion seized by regulator from FTX to 'safeguard' it
Post Date: 2022-12-30 19:03:45 by Charles_Byrd
The Securities Commission of The Bahamas announced late Thursday that it had seized $3.5 billion worth of crypto assets from bankrupt crypto exchange FTX, formerly owned and headed by disgraced billionaire and Democratic mega-donor Sam Bankman-Fried. FTX lost nearly half a billion dollars in a suspected hack on Nov. 11, with the attack beginning just hours after it filed for bankruptcy in the U.S., CNBC reported. The regulator decided to seize the assets on Nov. 12 because they believed there was a significant risk they might be stolen or otherwise dissipated, apparently based on information from Bankman- Fried regarding the alleged hacking incident, according to ...
Big Brother in the Big Apple
Post Date: 2022-12-30 18:57:22 by Charles_Byrd
Big Brother is protecting you. That is a quote from New York City Mayor Eric Adams in a Saturday article at Politico. Adams made the comment in defense of the extensive web of high-tech surveillance his city government deploys against people in Americas most populous city, as well as the mayors desire to expand the surveilling. Such a comment is very disturbing for any liberty loving individual who has a basic understanding of George Orwells novel from which the Big Brother mention is derived as well as the amazing capability of the surveillance technology available to governments nowadays.

Post Date: 2022-12-30 18:03:20 by Charles_Byrd
In a move that absolutely nobody could have seen coming, New York City is scrapping its brilliant idea for electric garbage trucks after finding out the truck simply arent powerful enough to plow snow. The pipe dream of converting the citys 6,000 garbage trucks from gas to electric in order to try and limit carbon emissions (because theres no other problems that need to be dealt with in New York City right now) is clashing with the limits of electric-powered vehicles, Gothamist wrote this week.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams Wants You to Love Big Brother
Post Date: 2022-12-30 17:58:36 by Charles_Byrd
There's a common type of government official who sincerely believes the world would be better and their suffering subjects much happier if the restraints were removed and politicians were free to act as they wish. That their sincere belief in their goodness is exactly why we need those restraints always escapes them. The latest example of the breed is New York City Mayor Eric Adams who, unironically, urges his constituents to embrace the surveillance state because "Big Brother is protecting you."

What the Southwest Meltdown Means for Airline Policy
Post Date: 2022-12-30 17:55:59 by Charles_Byrd
In the wake of the Christmas 2022 breakdown of airline service, politicians and consumer advocates are calling for tougher antitrust policy and even the re-regulation of U.S. airlines. While a once-in-a- generation blizzard encompassing about three-quarters of the continental U.S. would obviously disrupt air (and rail and highway) travel, especially over a major holiday weekend, most airlines recovered pretty well from this unprecedented storm. But not Southwest. With outdated flight- and crew-scheduling technology, the popular lower-cost airline melted down, stranding huge numbers of holiday travelers. To get planes and crews to where they need to be to restore normal service, Southwest ...

Ian Freeman believes he is, as a minister for the Shire Free Church in Keene, New Hampshire, a force for creating a more peaceful and just world. He thinks using and selling bitcoin is a key part of his ministry. As he said on a recent episode of his nationally syndicated radio show Free Talk Live, "I felt my calling to do this mission, to spread peace, and ultimately what bitcoin is doing is undermining the warmonger state. The more dollars are out of circulation, the more disempowered that state is."

Post Date: 2022-12-30 17:47:37 by Charles_Byrd
Americans whole-heartedly reject several woke terms created by radical leftists to control ideas and dialogue, the New York Post reported, citing a recent poll from the far-left New York Times. The New York Post Editorial Board on Wednesday pointed to the Times online quiz and accompanying poll of 4,000 adults as evidence that the majority of Americans are not on board with this effort to warp the language to ideological ends. Some of the jilted words include chestfeeding, birthing parent, and Latinx. Click for Full Text!

Adam Fox, the homeless man the feds framed as the "ringleader" of the FBI- led plot to "kidnap" Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, was sentenced to 16 years in prison on Tuesday. The feds were asking for Fox to be given a life sentence but the judge -- despite being totally biased in favor of the prosecution -- seems to have been uncomfortable with giving him life in prison just for political gain.

The “Unseen Effects” of California’s New Minimum-Wage Law
Post Date: 2022-12-30 17:29:05 by Charles_Byrd
French economic journalist and satirist Frédéric Bastiat, widely known for his sarcastic opposition to protectionism, observed in the mid-1840s, In the economic sphere an act, a habit, an institution, a law produces not only one effect, but a series of effects. Of these effects, the first alone is immediate; it appears simultaneously with its cause; it is seen. The other effects emerge only subsequently; they are not seen; we are fortunate if we foresee them. Click for Full Text!

New Report Details Media Malfeasance Regarding Climate Change
Post Date: 2022-12-29 21:17:38 by Charles_Byrd
If you happen to believe that much of the hype surrounding so-called climate change is manufactured by an agenda-driven mass media, youre not alone. A new report created by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), the Heartland Institute, and other climate realism groups presents several examples of media hyperbole in regard to the climate-change narrative currently being pushed by globalist entities such as the United Nations. Climate Fact Check 2022 details just a few instances of how mainstream media exaggerates weather events, making them seem unprecedented or historical when the actual truth is far different.

Congress and the Federal Reserve Could Be Setting Us Up for Economic Disaster
Post Date: 2022-12-29 21:13:42 by Charles_Byrd
In the final week of 2022, we Americans can foresee two significant economic risks in 2023. The first one is a probability that the Federal Reserve will get weak-kneed and stop raising interest rates before inflation is truly under control. The second risk is that Congress will continue to spend and borrow money irresponsibly. The likely mix of these two hazards would all but ensure that our economic misery lasts much longer than necessary. Let's start with the first risk. In theory, to tame inflation, the Fed will need to push real interest rates not only highas it has already donebut higher than the highest rate that the Fed is now targeting, and in fact much higher than ...
Wealthy Connecticut Residents Received Millions in Federal Dollars After Hurricane Sandy
Post Date: 2022-12-29 21:11:42 by Charles_Byrd
After the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, Congress apportioned over $50 billion for disaster relief. Among that total was $16 billion for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)'s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery program (CDBG-DR). The state of Connecticut received $159 million. CDBG-DR is intended primarily to help people with lower incomes respond to disasters. But a new Politico investigation reveals that as low-income areas in Connecticut remained in disrepair after the storm, generous reimbursements and low-interest loans went to wealthy homeowners who, on paper, should not have even qualified.

According to the Conference, The Telemedicine Act had required an attending physician be present in person when the two-part abortion pill protocol was prescribed.

A Former Obama Drug Policy Adviser Blames 'Libertarianism' for 'Fueling San Francisco's Drug Crisis'
Post Date: 2022-12-28 22:58:47 by Charles_Byrd
The problem with San Francisco, according to Stanford University psychologist* Keith Humphreys, is too much "libertarianism." Since the City by the Bay is not exactly known for light governance, that may seem counterintuitive. But Humphreys, who was a senior White House adviser on drug policy during the Obama administration, has in mind something closer to libertinism, which he says has long characterized San Francisco's culture. In a San Francisco Chronicle op- ed piece published on Tuesday, he blames excessive tolerance of vice, which he equates with libertarianism, for "fueling San Francisco's drug crisis." That analysis is doubly wrong. Humphreys ...
