  1. Michael Saylor: Bitcoin has no existential threats and will dominate 21st century (Pt. 1/2)

    While Bitcoin has risen in mainstream popularity, with institutional adoption rising at an unprecedented pace, skeptics of cryptocurrencies cite the potential of government intervention to outlaw its use as a currency as a reason not to invest.

    Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy, said that even if Bitcoin’s use as a form of payment is regulated or even outlawed, the world’s largest cryptocurrency would still not face any threats to its primary use case, which is a store of value, and so no existential threat should be considered.

    “I think that Bitcoin is going to be the emerging strong money store of value asset in the 21st century,” Saylor told Michelle Makori, editor-in-chief of Kitco News. “There are 8 billion people that need a strong money or a monetary asset. If they’re going to live a decent life, that asset needs to be digital.”

  2. Michael Saylor: Why Bitcoin standard is what 8 billion people need for decent life (Pt. 2/2)

    As concerns rise about inflation, one of the ongoing debates amongst investors is which financial asset would serve as the best long-term, store of value. Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy, argues that the dominant store of value in the 21st century must be digital, and ideally, this monetary asset takes the form of the Bitcoin standard.

    “You want to fix your country like Nigeria or Zimbabwe. The way you fix your country is you buy 2 billion, $3 billion worth of Bitcoin. And you issue currency back to buy the Bitcoin. That is the Bitcoin standard. And every one of your citizens stopped starving to death and they live a decent life,” Saylor told Michelle Makori, editor-in-chief of Kitco News.

    Still, skeptics remain. Bill Maher, host of the political talk show Real Time with Bill Maher, has recently criticized Bitcoin by saying “There is something inherently not credible about creating hundreds of billions in virtual wealth with nothing ever actually being accomplished and no actual product made or service rendered. It’s like Tinker Bell’s light. Its power source is based solely on enough children believing in it.”

  3. Real Context News Podcast #6: Georgia’s Sec. of State Raffensperger & Deputies on Election Integrity

    Be sure to like, share, and subscribe!

    On New Year’s Eve, I interviewed Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs, and Voting Implementation Manager Gabriel Sterling, presented here. Yesterday, President Trump called Sec. Raffensperger, Dep. Sec. Fuchs, and their legal counsel and tried to pressure and threaten the Secretary to overturn the legitimate, repeatedly validated results of the presidential election in Georgia just three days before the two special U.S. Senate elections in Georgia—pitting Democrats Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff against incumbent Republicans Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, respectively—are to take place, throwing the races and the country into further tumult. Most of Trump’s wild conspiracy theories and lies are refuted by my guests in this episode, in which we discuss election integrity, death threats, Georgia’s elections, the rule of law, and the state of our current politics. Special thanks to my guests and especially Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs for making this special, important discussion possible.

  5. Eeben Barlow: Inside the world of private military contractors | Talk to Al Jazeera

    For years, private armies have provided services to governments around the world. They are often secretive and operate in the shadows.

    Blackwater - now known as Academi - is one of the most well-known private armies. It has provided troops and other services to the US government in different conflicts, including the Iraq war.

    But it is not always clear how these private armies are formed, where they operate, or even what their missions consist of.

    Eeben Barlow is chairman of ‘Specialised Tasks, Training, Equipment and Protection International’ - a private army that - according to Barlow - has operated throughout Africa and beyond. He was also behind another similar company that shut down in 1998 - called Executive Outcomes.

    And while many argue private armies are mercenaries doing the jobs governments do not want to do - Barlow insists his operations are legitimate and follow international law.

    "We don’t see ourselves as mercenaries. We are first of all contracted by a national government. We become part of their armed forces, we wear their uniforms, we follow their procedures and guidelines, we fall under the legal regulations of that country. So, in other words, we serve the country that contracts us. And yes, we get paid for it, but we certainly don’t get paid to run around and cause chaos," …

  10. AG William Barr Testifies Before House Judiciary Committee | LIVE | NowThis

    HOUSE DEMS GRILL BARR: Attorney General William Barr testifies before the House Judiciary Committee on oversight within the Dept. of Justice. This is Barr’s first Congressional testimony in over a year. Barr is expected to be questioned on his handling of the Mueller investigation, the use of force against peaceful protesters, the cases of former Trump allies Roger Stone and Michael Flynn, and the sudden firing of the U.S. Attorney of the SDNY who led the probe into Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen and was currently investigating Rudy Giuliani. Barr’s prepared opening statements accuses Democrats of demonizing him and states that Pres. Trump has not inappropriately intervened in any DOJ matters. Ever since becoming Attorney General, Barr has been constantly criticized for his politicization of the department. » Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Sign up for our newsletter KnowThis to get the biggest stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox: https://go.nowth.is/KnowThis
