In an interview with CR, Couy Griffin, the chairman of the Otero County, New Mexico, county commission, explained how our government has exposed his county, and by extension, the rest of the nation, to unprecedented criminal activity from the Mexican cartels. In his view, by taking down the two secondary Border Patrol checkpoints in his county in order to focus on more processing of illegal immigrants, the federal government is missing the point. “The cartel is winning and winning big; they are ...

  • Comey Crossed The Rubicon
    Submitted by J.

Perhaps concerned that Hillary Clinton's use of a private e-mail server for official government business would create a significant legal problem that would hinder the future President once elected, an investigation was undertaken to address this issue.  Mr. Comey’s protestations that this investigation wasn’t predetermined is undermined by the facts now known:  (1) Mr. Comey, following the direction of Attorney General Lynch, publicly referred to this as a ...

  • New Silicon Valley Stock Exchange Is A Warning Sign For The Startup Bubble
    Authored by Jesse Colombo via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, For the last several years, there has been a tremendous amount of activity and hype in the tech startup arena. In addition to the tens of thousands of startups that been founded in recent years, there are over three-hundred new “unicorn” startups that have valuations of $1 billion or more. Most of these unicorns came of out virtually nowhere and amassed tremendous valuations despite hemorrhaging cash, which is a tell-tale sign of a bubble. The recent announcement of a new Silicon Valley stock exchange for “hot startups, particularly those that are money-losing” is an indication of the amount of hubris and hype there is in the startup arena right now – The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission approved the creation of the Long-Term Stock Exchange, or LTSE, a Silicon Valley-based national securities exchange promoting what ...

Americans used to think that Russia-gate was about a plot to hack the 2016 election.  They were wrong.  Russia-gate is really about an immense conspiracy to do four things: No. 1: Ratchet up tensions with Russia to ever more dangerous levels; No. 2: Show that Democrats are even more useless than people imagined; No. 3: Persecute Julian Assange; No. 4: Re-elect Donald Trump as president.

  • 4 Utility Tokens Deserving of Your Due Diligence as the ICO Craze Tapers Out
    A quick glance on CoinMarketCap shows that there are 2,169 coins and tokens in the market. For new traders and investors, the paradox of choice might make it somewhat difficult to know which coins or tokens deserve a place in your portfolio. Most people tend to follow the crowd to invest in ICOs based on headlines, influencer reports, and their “feelings”. The problem with following the crowd is that you could end up buying the coins with the largest marketing budgets without delving too much into their underlying value (if any). Many of the 2,169 coins in the market are variants of the same coin, offering similar features to the same target audience with the only differentiating features being their branding. One simple way to avoid the herd mentality as a cryptocurrency trader/investor is to look for utility tokens with ...

    The once robust Initial Coin Offering (ICO) market, which generated billions for new crypto projects, has taken a nosedive in the last twelve months. According to a report published by the cryptocurrency exchange BitMex on May 13, the ICO market is down 97 percent on a year-on-year basis, generating only $40 million in new capital through the first quarter of 2019. BitMex findings are couched in a broader discussion over the growing phenomenon of “Initial Exchange Offerings (IEOs),” which the company reports to be functionally similar to ICOs, albeit with a name-change to distance itself from the now-defunct coin offering space. In addition to a stagnating marketplace for new coin offerings, BitMex reports that the majority of ICOs launched during 2018 have performed poorly.

The first group are the power-serving authoritarians who identify with the left side of the political spectrum; they argue that it’s good and right to trust Silicon Valley plutocrats to regulate political speech on giant monopolistic platforms. The second group are the capitalism cheerleaders who believe there’s a free market solution to every problem; they argue that these Silicon Valley giants are private companies which are completely separate from the government, so it’s not accurate to refer to what they do with their own property as censorship.

    Following today's Uber debacle, it seemed only appropriate to scan the current landscape of unicorns waiting in the wings. It was only six years ago that venture capitalist Aileen Lee coined the term “unicorn” to describe any privately-held startup worth $1 billion or more. At the time, Visual Capitalist's Jeff Desjardins explains, such valuations were so rare that they deserved a special name – but since then, it’s fair to say that the landscape has shifted dramatically. The startup boom intensified, and capital flowed into private companies at an unprecedented pace. In recent times, unicorns have multiplied more like rabbits, and investors have propped up the combined value of the world’s 326 unicorns to the tune of $1.1 trillion.
