  • Bitcoin Is Now Worth More Than Wal-Mart (The Entire Company)

    The Economic ^ | 12/17/17 | Michael Snyder
    Would you rather own 100% of Wal-Mart or every Bitcoin in existence?  At one point such a question would have been completely absurd, but now things have changed.  As I write this article, Wal-Mart has a market cap of 287.68 billion dollars.  Wal-Mart is the king of the retail industry in America, and nobody else is even close.  Bitcoin, on the other hand, is an entirely digital creation that did not even exist until 2009.  No government or central bank in the entire world recognizes it as a legitimate currency, and there are very, very few retail establishments that are...

    Bitcoin broke 19,000k today for the first time. In the last week alone it's up just shy of $5,000. Even though the price was impressive what got my attention was that fact that investment banks Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and even the Bank of America are now getting in crypto currency. Today I see more and more companies accepting bitcoins than even a year ago. So I through I would throw some money that will not hurt me to lose to see what happens. For the record, had I invested 2K last January 2017 when bitcoin was $1k I would...

    As Bitcoin values continue to climb, the prophecy by the 'Nostradamus of the markets' is coming true. In September of 2014, in an interview with Fox Business, Tim Draper claimed Bitcoin would hit $10,000 USD in three years. To put that in perspective, Bitcoin was worth $413 USD at the time of the interview. Even strong believers in bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general were skeptical of such massive overall growthparticularly after the intense fluctuations the market, like the crash of 2011, in which the cryptocurrency declined in value by 94 percent. Well, today, Bitcoin surged past $9,000having increased well over...

    The new .22 rimfire plant in Lewiston, Idaho, is on line. Vista Outdoors owns the CCI and Federal rimfire brands. They have increased production for both brands by 20 percent.

    The headline in The Washington Post dates back to March 21, 2014. It reads: Personal FBI flights for Holder and other Justice officials went unreported The story begins: The agency that tracks federal travel did not report hundreds of personal and other nonmission trips aboard government planes for senior Justice Department officials including Attorney General Eric Holder and former FBI Director Robert Mueller, according to a watchdog report. Congresss nonpartisan Government Accountability Office determined that the 395 flights cost taxpayers $7.8 million. But the General Services Administration, which oversees trips aboard federal jets, did not require documentation because of a...

    All the war talk is turning out to be great for bitcoin. It's been on fire since January, 2017 when it for the first time reached $1,000 U.S. Dollars. It's now worth 3 times the price of gold. I bet it will be up to $5,000 in early September and over $7,000 by the end of October. We will see how it plays out.

    Dallas proclaimed itself the first human rights county in Texas. The commissioners court embraced the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, an initiative that claims to cultivate communities worldwide, although the Geneva-based Human Rights Council (HRC) has come under fire for anti-Israel bias and member countries with poor records. Human rights abuses occur in our community, our country, and our world every day, said Democrat Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, who pushed the resolution to a vote on July 5. We must lead at the local level. We cant do everything but we can all do something. Democrat commissioners...

    The bulk of the decline in gasoline prices can be thanked on a recent plunge in crude oil prices as concern over weak demand and high supply has offset sentiment about last Novembers OPEC production cuts. The number of U.S. rigs drilling stands at 877, a rise of 7 in the last week, but 462 more rigs- 111% more- than a year ago. While OPEC cut oil production, U.S. and Canadian oil companies have filled the gap, leaving OPEC to lose market share. How long the charade continues is up to OPEC, who will decide in a few weeks whether...

    Democrat Congressional Candidate and Georgia darling, Jon Ossoff paid human smugglers operating across Europe approximately $2,000. Everyday we learn more and more about this young Democrat who was foisted onto Georgians by outside money. We also just reported that Ossoff didnt vote in the 2012 election. He claims he couldnt vote because he was abroad. Yeah ok, makes sense! Someone who was involved in human smuggling shouldnt be able to run for office, but since hes a Democrat, this will probably get swept under the rug.

    Last week, Edward Price, a former CIA analyst, became a media darling after the Washington Post published Prices op-ed announcing his resignation from the CIA because he was unable to serve the Trump administration in good faith because of President Trumps policies and disregard for the U.S. Intelligence Community. While several media outlets rushed to interview Price and depict him as an ethical, non-political CIA officer who rejected what he claimed was the deceitful and delusional Trump administration, a brief look at the facts suggest not only is this a blatant instance of fake news, but that Price is a...

    Trumps actions in office have been even more disturbing. His visit to CIA headquarters on his first full day in office, an overture designed to repair relations, was undone by his ego and bluster. Standing in front of a memorial to the CIAs fallen officers, he seemed to be addressing the cameras and reporters in the room, rather than the agency personnel in front of them, bragging about his inauguration crowd the previous day. Whether delusional or deceitful, these were not the remarks many of my colleagues and I wanted to hear from our new commander in chief. I couldnt...

    Liberal firebrand and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren slammed President Trump Cabinet picks Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) and Steven Mnuchin Wednesday in a series of tweets accusing Trump of neglecting his promise to "drain the swamp." The Democratic senator accused both Price and Mnuchin of lying during their hearings as nominees to lead the Health and Treasury departments, respectively. "This isn't a game Senate GOP. The safety of our economy and health of our people could be in the hands of two men who lied to the US Senate," Warren said. .@HHSGov nom Price lied to the Senate about a sweetheart...

    Petulance not rewarded today Congratulations to Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee. They have achieved an almost impossible goal: They refused to show up and do their jobs, and yet they somehow managed to fail at not doing them. As a result, that nominations of Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services and Steve Mnuchin for Secretary of the Treasury are on their way to the full Senate for likely confirmation. The Democrats gambit was boycott the Finance Committee votes on both nominees, thus preventing the Republican majority from taking a vote because the rules say there has...

    Republicans muscled through committee approval of President Donald Trump's nominees for Treasury and Health on Wednesday, suspending a key Senate rule in the latest escalation of partisan tensions in Congress. Democrats boycotted a Finance Committee meeting and Republicans responded by temporarily scuttling a rule requiring at least one Democrat to be present for votes. The committee then approved Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., to become Health secretary and financier Steve Mnuchin to be Treasury secretary by a pair of 14-0 votes. Democrats had been demanding time to ask more questions about both nominees. Democrats say there were unresolved questions about both...

    Senate Republicans took an extraordinary step Wednesday to move forward with two of President Donald Trump's top Cabinet nominees after confronting a boycott from Democrats across the aisle. Republican lawmakers on the Senate Finance Committee -- the panel that oversees the nomination of Steve Mnuchin to be Treasury secretary and Rep. Tom Price to be secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services -- gathered for the second day in a row with Democrats on the committee refusing to show up. Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, a Utah Republican, pointing to the "extraordinary circumstances" of the meeting, allowed the Republicans...

    Full out war between Democrats and the White House broke out today when Senate Democrats on Tuesday refused to attend a committee vote on two President Trumps more controversial nominees, effectively delaying their consideration. Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee boycotted votes to advance Tom Price, Trumps pick to head the Department of Health and Human Services, and Steven Mnuchin, his selection to head the Treasury Department. Since at least one democrat must be on present for the vote to be held, the move will effectively delay and potentially prevent the confirmation votes on Mnuchin and Price. The duo is...
