Today Wikileaks dumped a collection of CIA material focused on the agency's activities during Hussein Bahamas second term.1 Aside from the revelation that during this period the CIA created its own, less accountable version of the NSA; the agency apparently lost exclusive control over the apparatus near the end on the Hussein Bahamas administration.
The People's Republic of KKKalifornia has found itself in a pickle. While KKKalifornia is actively seeking to secede from the United States because of President Trump's election, KKKalifornia's government is desperately pleading for certain portions of the Trump agenda to be enacted. Namely KKKalifornia wants the portion of The Great Again that involves rebuilding America's infrastructure as the Cali bois who have neglected their home into ruin reject the rest of The Great Again. The arid desert territory's roads are buckling, dams are failing, and the recent, rare deluge which filled their reservoirs is set to break even more of their stuff when the soil dries.
With one hand KKKalifornia neglects its infrastructure while devoting effort to legislating cow flatulence.1 KKKalifornia's crisis is that if one wants a part of The Great Again, one has to accept all of The Great Again. Can KKKalifornia summon the honesty necessary to make amends with Trump and America, or is The Great Again going to pass the once Golden State on by?

Today addressing a gathering of governors, United States President Donald Trump issued an ultimatum that they repeal or replacement Obamacare must come before any tax reform proposals will be considered. This cutting ultimatum comes as congressional members of the party he saved have been the rate limiting factor slowing President Trump's agenda of summoning The Great Again.
Coindesk1 today gave the exciting title
"Crypto Traders Flock to Altcoins Amid Bitcoin Price Malaise"
to a mundane piece whose only actual mentions of fiat/Bitcoin interface reported price concerns continued price stability. With the value of the United States dollar continuing to be reported under 0.001 BTC for much of this young year, all malaise seems to be accumulating on the fiat side.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro has declined to file charges against suspects who confessed to a home invasion where they shot the home owner. The 76 year old shooting victim survived after spending two weeks in the hospital. The victim was shot when two state troopers invaded his home and fired upon him before he could exercise his legally protected right under Pennsylvania's 'Castle Doctrine' law to dispatch the felons invading his home. In Pennsylvania home invasion committed when a residence is occupied is a class one felony. Back in 2013, some culturally superior North Americans south of the Rio Grande formed a vigilante posse and arrested the local police after they killed a beloved local man.
A minority group of Facebook shareholders are organizing an effort to replace socialist Mark Zuckerberg (WOT:nonperson) as Chairman of the board at the firm. The coup organized by "consumer watchdog" SumOfUs claims that an "independent" chair would:
"oversee the executives of the company, improve corporate governance, and set a more accountable, pro-shareholder agenda."
SumOfUs describes itself as an organization:
"Fighting for people over profits"
Which raises the serious question of what they imagine a "pro-shareholder" agenda to be.
This goes to show that even a sworn friend of socialism like Mark Zuckerberg who presides over one of their favorite cesspools is in reality far less protected from the activists than those who deny the leftists their support, sympathy, and proximity. This coup seems unlikely to forcefully unseat Zuckerberg from the Facebook chairmanship unless he chooses to step down, but it highlights the fact that when dealing with leftists, you can not possibly pay your enemy enough to love you. So long as you have and they have not, you will always be their enemy.
Police One, a forum frequented by members of US Federal and State "Law Enforcement" agencies, confirmed today that 715,000 of member accounts have gone up for sale on the deep web after a breach that occurred in 2015. The database contains usernames, password hashed with every hacker's favorite md5, email addresses, dates of birth, and other miscellaneous data for the bargain sum of 0.4 BTC. Forum officials said they were notifying members of the hack so they could reset passwords, although this will do little to prevent dedicated attackers from future attacks.
After a 51-50 vote of the United States Senate Trump nominee and Amway heiress Betsy DeVos is now the United States Secretary of Education. Mike Pence cast the tie-breaking vote after lich Senator John McCain1 and Lindsey Graham defected from Trump's party. Money from unions purporting to represent "professionals" "working" in public education is a major source of funding for socialist politicians in the United States. Pence in our time.
Notably in this past election, McCain was saved from a credible primary challenge by a late endorsement from Donald Trump. ↩
As mentioned in Shinohai's latest shitcoin Roundup, a few single language Chinese miners have taken to expressing an unjustified degree of loyalty to yet another doomed anti-Bitcoin forking effort. In the same week the fork effort's defective client unintentionally fell out of consensus due to its inherent slop, Andrew Quentson (WOT:nonperson) published a purported "cosmetically corrected" interview with Jiang Zhuoer (WOT:nonperson) where among other things Zhuoer confesses to "SPV mining" while asserting to have 100 million dollars1 committed to destroying any actual Bitcoin network which remains after splitting his favored altcoin from Bitcoin.
If Zhuoer's intent actually corresponds to what the words printed in English mean,2 it represents a paltry counter to the deterrent presented by Mircea Popescu and other lords of the Most Serene Republic, which has thus far damped off earlier social engineering attempts to fork Bitcoin into something else before they could root.
Continued imprudence among mining pool operators suggests that a solution to the mining bug3 in order to disabuse certain activist factions of their imagined participation in Bitcoin. Importantly, recent efforts by the People's Bank of China to bring sanity to their local fiat/Bitcoin interfaces does not preclude future statal attempts to attack Bitcoin via the mining vector from the People's Republic of China. Sorry for your loss.
Roger Ver's bitcoin.com mining pool once again demonstrated its incompetence and total lack of knowledge regarding actual Bitcoin Monday by mining a block greater than 1 MB, valued at a total of 13.2 BTC in the process.1 The rest of the network quickly rejected the attempt to fork the network away from actual Bitcoin and ignored the buggy big block. Bitcoin Unlimited just released version 1.0.0 of their software, which was by and large untested, unlike the rigorous testing schedule and research that goes into therealbitcoin reference client. Disgraced former Bitcoin core developer Gavin Andresen shrugged off the news on twitter, the butthurt of his continual stream of poor decisions apparently still stinging. Sorry for your loss.
A healthy ~0.72 BTC in fees were attached to the block. ↩
