Richard Spencer - Big Scrub TX
I am definitely amused at how willing he is to give "normal" interviews. The (black) guy that does the Reveal podcast [link=(https://www.revealnews.org/episodes/a-frank-conversation-with-a-white-nationalist/)]talked to him[/link] the morning after the election. He then followed up in March to [link=...

[quote]Perhaps we will get to a point when cryptocurrencies are commonly swapped and accepted like dollars. But, it's going to take a lot of work to convince the majority of people that the digitized money world can be trusted when big banks aren't involved. Not to start a generation battle, but tha...

[quote] That rings a bell. I also thought one of the intermediaries just shut down and if they held your coins, the were gone. [/quote] That's true. That's why one should keep their coins offline....

Go take a look at Malaysia. And if we can't prevent the same in Indonesia, we're screwed. I guess the good news is the Saudi fiscal situation is a fast-deteriorating shitshow....

[quote]The only culprit here is the government. The citizens sought to seek economic equality by surrendering their power to communists who (spoiler) actually care more about enriching themselves than helping to spread wealth.

Sam Harris: with certainty, The Apprentice n-bomb tape exists - Big Scrub TX
He won't say how he knows, but he "guarantees with moral certainty" that it's out there. He's less full of shite than almost any commentator I can think of, so it's likely true. [link=(https://www.samharris.org/podcast/item/the-path-to-impeachment)]LINK[/link]...
