Build A Stock Photo Site That Only Accepts Nano

The first time I purchased Bitcoin was because I needed to buy from someone that only accepted Bitcoin. That is what got me to jump through all the hoops and learn the tech. That is why I think exclusivity is the key to Nano gaining traction.
Enter the Nano Digital Marketplace
When I'm working on a creative project for my business, I need digital goods. Stock photos, vector graphic, icons, etc. are critical to building a website or a sales brochure. Sound effects, video clips, and music are critical to creating a video.
But you can't just lift those things from the internet. If you violate copyright law and get caught, it can be disastrous. You get sued. Youtube demonetizes or bans your video. That is why people spend money at stock photo websites, for example. They are purchasing the right to use those digital resources - usually for profit.
We should make a website that allows Nano enthusiasts like myself to submit our own photos, graphics, and other digital goods for resell. In doing so, we grant the Nano Digital Marketplace an unlimited license to resell the digital rights.

  1. All purchases are made in Nano.
  2. All purchases are the equivalent in Nano of $1 USD at the time of purchase.
  3. All collected Nano goes to a burn address.
With our site, Nano enthusiasts are incentivized to donate their pictures and home made stock photos because the resulting sales will increase the overall value of Nano by creating demand and also by restricting supply.
Business owners and creatives are incentivized to buy and learn Nano in order to get those sweet digital goods.
If that stock photo you really like exists nowhere but on the Nano Digital Marketplace, then you have no other choice but to buy you some Nano, put it in a wallet, and use it for payment. Boom. We've just recruited a new user.

Questions and Answers from OKEx AMA with Tron Black - 2/18/2020

https://twitter.com/OKEx/status/1228212766126661633
The AMA was a huge success! THANK YOU TRON!
If you want to see all the questions that poured in when they opened the AMA up for questions from the audience, here they are: https://pastebin.com/KVpyXmgu The Telegram admins had to temporarily mute the group because there were so many questions flooding in from so many people. A *good problem* to have. :)
Below are all the ANSWERED questions.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
[email protected], [18.02.20 05:09]
Here’s question#1:What is your background and how did you come to the idea to create RVN [email protected]

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:12]
Sorry, I was locked out for minute.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:12]
I'm just a tiny part of Ravencoin, and there are some amazing developers (Jeremy, Mark, Cade, and Corbin) that have been brought the new capabilities to mainnet. The core idea of bringing assets to a bitcoin-derived blockchain platform came from Bruce Fenton, a former Executive Director of the Bitcoin Foundation with life-long experience in the traditional finance and stockbroker world. Medici Ventures is allowing some of its developers to contribute to the project. I was fortunate enough to have the right background to help with this project. I have a CS degree, C++ coding skills, economics background, early entrepreneurial success, teaching experience, an MBA, and a burning passion for the crypto-space and how it can change the world for the better.

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:12]
Thanks. Here's question#2: Why did you name the project Raven? What was Raven created to solve? What is the business model of the project?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:12]
The name came from Bruce Fenton. Ravens are clever birds with a rich history. Ravencoin makes it easy to create and transfer your own asset. There isn’t a business model for the project. It is a gift to the world in the spirit of Bitcoin. Medici Ventures has allowed some of its top developers to contribute time and effort to the project. Medici Ventures does hold some mined RVN, so it may be a win-win.

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:14]
Thank you for answering. Let's move on to the next question# 3. What are the $RVN tokens used for? What gives it value?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:15]
Thank you for asking.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:15]
The RVN tokens are used to purchase your own token on the Ravencoin platform.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:16]
Those RVN are burned.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:16]
RVN is also used to incentivize the miners to secure the chain.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:16]
RVN is also used for transaction fees for tranferring RVN or user-created (your) assets.

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:17]
Cool. Here's question# 4:In your opinion what is the unique "selling" point, or best feature, of Ravencoin?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:17]
This is like being asked "who is your favorite child."

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:18]
Except answering it doesn't cost children thousands in therapy so I'll give it a shot.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:18]
The best feature of Ravencoin, with the most unexpected results, has been its linkage to IPFS.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:19]
This was originally done to ensure that meta-dat about a token doesn't get lost like it has on other platforms like Counterparty.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:19]
The linkage to IPFS has RECENTLY been extended to include messaging, and memos.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:20]
You can now include information, even a PDF, or a video clip with every transaction.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:20]
This is powerful, and I can't wait to see how it gets used.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:20]

Quesiton#5 What are the advantages of using Ravencoin for assets tokenization compared to other blockchain protocols?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:21]
Wow. Where do I start?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:21]
First, the meta-data about the token can be recorded via IPFS, so everyone knows what the token represents.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:22]
Second, the token has a unique name which can help with preventing fake tokens, and allows humang readable "root-of-trust" for the token that isn't just 40 characters of hex (ERC-20).

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:22]
There explorers for assets, like: https://ravencoin.asset-explorer.com

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:23]
and https://www.mangofarmassets.com/assetviewer

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:23]
Wallets like RVN Wallet, MangoFarms Wallet, and Zelcore wallet support Ravencoin assets.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:23]

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:23]
Here's our next question from Twitter# 6: Does being fully community-driven blockchain have its own drawbacks for rvn? You know, voluntarism means no marketing or legal team.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:24]
Yes, oh yes.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:24]
But the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks.

📣Group is Off Commenting for a while due to AMA. Will allow back when Q&A session later. Kindly be Patience with us. Thank You🥰

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:24]
It is just technology that people choose to use.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:24]
Ravencoin has attracted the right kinds of people, including donated legal help when it was needed.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:25]
The lack of a marketing budget does slow the awareness.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:25]
In some ways this is good, and the demand for RVN isn't reliant on promotion.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:25]
As other projects stop promotion, or run out of marketing funds, they are at risk.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:26]
Ravencoin is just growing slowly and steadily as more people learn about it.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:26]
Consider yourself fortunate to have learned about Ravencoin early.😁

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:26]
---------------

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:27]
Great!!! Here's the next question from Twitter# 7:is it apple to apple if I say that ravencoin is going to disrupt wall street just like bitcoin is disrupting to central banking?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:28]
At the very least, Ravencoin will help show the way that tokenization can improve capital formation. It is up to others to take advantage of these new tools, technologies, and features.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:28]
It might happen first in countries other than the U.S.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:29]
Look at the story of Blockbuster Video (former leader in video rental), and Netflix (current video streaming leader) to see what might happen in the future. Is Wall Street the new Blockbuster Video?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:30]
I see similar patterns of arrogance, but only time will tell.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:30]

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:30]
Here's the next question# 8: How will Ravencoin defend hashrate distribution (algo question) if there are important securities issued on this platform (double spend attack)?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:31]
Ravencoin doesn't re-org after 60 blocks which helps prevent double-spend attacks -- a feature called NLR.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:31]
Also, something to be aware of is that in most cases tokens are redeemed by an issuer which removes the incentive to double-spend.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:32]
Example: Let's say the token is a share of real-estate. The laws of the jurisdiction for the real-estate would apply when redeeming for dividends, etc.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:33]
Also If the issuer is using the Restricted Assets feature of Ravencoin which have tokens that start with $, then the stolen tokens can be frozen.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:33]
Note: Regular assets (not starting with $) can't be frozen.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:33]
The issuer of the token should specify how redemption is handled.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:33]

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:34]
Thank you for your detailed answer. and Quesiton#9 How does RVN works? What problem did RVN solve? How do the Tokenomics work?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:34]
RVN works like BTC, because it is a code fork of BTC.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:34]
RVN lets you create your own tokens in under a minute. It is easy!!!

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:34]
RVN is required to create your own token.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:35]
Heres' the breakdown:

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:35]
500 RVN burned to create a root asset with a unique name. 100 RVN is burned to create a sub-asset (under a root asset). 5 RVN is burned to create a unique asset (NFT). 1000 RVN burned to be a qualifier. 1500 RVN burned to create a Restricted Asset with special superpowers. 0.1 RVN burned to attach a tag to a Ravencoin address. A small amount of RVN is used, but not burned to transfer assets.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:35]
------------

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:35]
Let's move on to the next question#10 Safety and security are always the most important things. So what is the security mechanism of RavenCoin to ensure user assets do not become the target of hackers?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:36]
Ravencoin has a strong network of miners.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:36]
Most of the original code is from Bitcoin which is probably the most vetted code in the world.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:36]
We have run a bug bounty to hopefully find any flaws before release to mainnet.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:36]
With all that said, there are no guarantees as this is just source code provided for free that folks choose to run.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:37]
If you need absolute assurance, then you should commission an audit of the code. There is no Ravencoin company, just a GitHub repository and a lot of passionate supporters.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:37]

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:37]
Quesiton#11 Nowaday most investors $RVN simply focus on the price of the token in the short term, and not on the real value of the project. Can you tell us about the motivation and advantages of an investor $RVN in the long term?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:38]
I can't speak to the motivations of individual investors.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:38]
RVN is a great token with good liquidity (world-wide).

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:38]
RVN is used to incentivize the miners and help protect the Ravencoin asset platform, so it has a use case.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:39]
RVN can be a store-of-value, and a medium-of-exchange.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:39]
One of my favorite things about Ravencoin is that it is tricky to classify, as it has so many uses.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:39]
I love seeing how people build using this technology platform.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:39]
Ravencoin makes new things possible.

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:40]
Here's the next question #12 Who are your competitors and how do you intend to thrive amongst them?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:40]
This may sound strange, but I don't see crypto technologies as competitors.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:41]
The crypto space is tiny compared to the legacy systems we've had for fifty years, so I look at every project as a way to bring new people into crypto-ecosystem.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:41]
If we add value, features, and capabilities, then more people will learn about the Ravencoin platform and what it can do for them.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:41]
The ERC-20 smart contract is an alternative asset issuance option, but Ravencoin is much better for most uses, so more education is needed.

Quesiton#13 What is the uniqueness of the Raven token? Why should investors (including me) invest in Raven?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:42]
Ravencoin is a platform.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:42]
You should evaluate the capabilities of the Ravencoin platform and ask yourself whether it will be used, and whether it adds value over other platforms like ETH, EOS, or TEZOS.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:42]
Hint: It does. I try not to provide investment advice, so do your own research.

Quesiton#14 What your plans in place for global expansion, are you focusing on only market at this time? Or focus on building and developing or getting customers and users, or partnerships? Can you explain this?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:43]
Ravencoin is already a global phenomenon.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:44]
South Korea has been onto Ravencoin for some time now, and I had the opportunity to speak at a South Korean Ravencoin meetup that filled an Art Hall with a waiting list.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:44]
Because of OKEx, that awareness will expand to China.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:44]
Our focus is building and education about Ravencoin.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:44]
There is no marketing budget, and we raised no funds.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:45]
The success so far has been completely organic, and Ravencoin has the best community of any coin, anywhere.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:45]

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:45]
Here is THE LAST question#10 from Twitter before we accept questions from the Telegram chat. what are your hopes with the $RVN listing on u/OKEx Okex going forward?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:45]
I hope the OKEx $RVN listing brings awareness of Ravencoin to new parts of the world.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:46]
The project is more capable than most people know, and because it was launched without raising any funds, there isn't a marketing budget.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:46]
It is up to smart individuals, like yourselves, to figure out what Ravencoin can do, and use the technology to make new companies and new projects.

>>> When is mainnet launch?
January 3, 2018

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:01]
>>> A project's Technical development may not always be reflected on the price of it's token. What is raven doing specifically to increase price of its token?
I agree. And I think it is especially true in the case of Ravencoin. The true value may not be reflected in the short-term. The Ravencoin project isn't a company. It will take time. There isn't a marketing dept or budget, but through events like these, and podcasts, and blogs, and new projects building on top of Ravencoin, I think the value will eventually be reflected.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:06]
>>>> Give me some important reasons why we need to buy RVN token where in fact hundreds of project failed and it went to bankruptcy or even developers run when they collect millions/billions of funds…? Can you explain it to us

Many got burned during the crazy ICO phase of 2017. Ravencoin did not participate. Ravencoin is technology and a passionate community. If I get hit by a bus tomorrow (heaven forbid), the project will continue because it is free, open-source and anyone can carry it on, or contribute, or use it, or copy it. Ravencoin can't go to bankruptcy. It is code, and it doesn't borrow, or or have debt. Some of the core develoepers, myself included, are allowed to work on the project while working for Medici Ventures. This is a great arrangement.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:10]
>>>> How does RAVENCOIN evaluate the importance of the user community? In the near future, does RAVEN have any special plans to attract and expand the community ?

The Ravencoin community is the most important and valuable part of the project. There are already clones of the code, but not of the passionate, helpful, and dedicated community. We invite you to become a part of it, and help expand it in Asia.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:13]
>>>>. RVN is regulatory compliant project for assets tokenization in U.S. Meaning that the assets issued in RVN protocol is fine with the U.S authorities.

Ravencoin provides features that help U.S. issuers stay legal under the existing U.S. rules. I've written about how this can be done, but I would always recommend having your plans reviewed by a competent attorney. The U.S. rules are complex, and from a different era.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:18]
>>>> Ravencoin is constantly finding new big partners.Audience is constantly growing.What’s the secret to this growth rate?

A vibrant, and welcoming community. Technology that solves real tokenization problems. Easy-to-use, so anyone can participate. Not launching as an ICO, so it is fair for everyone.

Come see duplicate cryptokitties, Craig Wright, a story about a payments company + Adam Curtis in what critics are calling a glorified school play.

What is Vaudeville?
It is a multi-act event theatrical performance brought to the world by FT Alphaville, the blogging team of the Financial Times, on Friday 26th July at Wiltons Music Hall in London, England, (Not necessarily United) Kingdom.
Some say it's a genius move to entrap an audience and tell them stories. Others are calling it experimental theatrical journalism. Others still are calling it a self-indulgent expression of editor Izabella Kaminska's inner subconscious no better than an end of year school play. It could be genius. It could be the Fyre Festival of data/economic/crypto/conspiracy events. But it's the ambiguity that makes Vaudeville (notably, by putting the schrodinger into CryptoKitty).
What we know is that it's never happened before, will never happen again, will not be filmed and will feature not insignificant volumes of comedy gold...
Featuring: Frances Coppola on "winner takes all" economics. A scaling solution song (a contender entry for "Blockchain the Musical") by a prominent bitcoin podcaster. A sermon on fraud by Craig Wright. Dgerard in the audience. A scary story about a payments company. Artist Simon Denny's duplicate cryptokitties (crypto copycats). A story about Alpha 60. Amazon influencers. The former CEO of a company that changed everything (or nothing at all).
PLUS
An array of Adam Curtis clips presented by the man himself.
More details here:

(This is not a desperate attempt to sell out and justify the future of independent not-sponsored-by-advertisers-or-crypto-donations-journalism. Or maybe it is. But we wouldn't ever admit it. It's definitely suitable for buttcoiners and that's why we thought we'd mention it here.)

1upCoin.com - Accept cryptocurrencies easily, securely and free on your stream with alerts!

Hey /twitch, I recently created and launched a new service on January 1st, called https://1upcoin.com/. It's a free service that makes accepting cryptocurrencies on your stream easy and secure, and requires no prior knowledge of cryptocurrencies to setup!
 
One of the biggest benefits of accepting cryptocurrencies is that users are unable to do any sort of chargebacks. Cryptocurrencies have this protection built in and based on some of the posts in this sub alone, this should be a huge reason to start accepting cryptocurrencies today. Additionally donations in cryptocurrencies can be anonymous, so you won't have to worry about some of your details that sometimes get shared by PayPal getting out there. Finally with cryptocurrencies becoming more popular this is a great way to introduce yourself with cryptocurrencies!
 
As I mentioned, setup is easy, but it's also quick! Most users have been able to start accepting cryptocurrencies in less than 1 minute! Go on over to https://1upcoin.com/ and log in with Twitch or YouTube, you'll be brought to your main dashboard page. The next step is to connect Stream Labs or Stream Elements for your alert system. Stream Labs makes this next step a lot easier, but Stream Elements isn't too bad either. Additional alert platform support and options are coming. If you have any that you'd like to see supported first, please let me know in the comments!
 
Once you have your alert platform linked you'll have to link your Coinbase account. If you're brand new to cryptcurrencies then you might not have an account on Coinbase yet. Setup for Coinbase is easy and free, I have a handy video for you to watch if you need any help with the setup, check out this video.
 
After you created your account, linking it to 1upCoin is as easy as the previous steps! Now whenever you receive a cryptocurrency donation, you will receive it on your Coinbase account and our service will trigger an alert on your stream! Once you receive the donation you can choose to either keep it there in the form that it was donated or to cash out to real money. Also 100% of the donations that are sent, go directly to your Coinbase!
 
To see our service in action, I've included some of my favorite clips of users receiving donations. Overall we helped streamers get over $10,000 in USD in the last month!
 
Also, if you're just a viewer and you're interested in having your favorite streamers accept cryptocurrencies, we have a referral system setup where you can get $100 in Litecoin! Just sign up and goto your referrals page to get your unique link!
 
Finally, I understand the need for other cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Bcash being supported. I'm currently running a beta that allows additional coins, including DOGE so if you're interested in helping test those, let me know!
 
If you have any questions/comments/concerns feel free to post them below, also be sure to check out https://1upcoin.com/faq and https://www.twitch.tv/videos/227828459?t=00h52m27s or reach out to me on Twitch/Twitter! Thanks!

Last chance for Bitcoin (BTC) HODL'ers to save themselves.

Isn't it so obvious that bitcoin (BTC) is dying a slow death? BTC holders are lucky that years were spent building the crypto ecosystem around BTC which prevented a quick death spiral. The upcoming days provide them with their last chance to jump ships and save themselves. It doesnt have to be "BCash" that they jump to. There are many better alternatives that actually work. All they have to do is reflect on the state of BTC with an open mind. This is not a FUD post. We already got a glimpse of how diehard BTC supporters react when the tide turns towards BCH or any altcoin as a matter of fact. All the accusations against coinbase/GDAX/VeWu start rolling in. They start screaming lawyers/SEC/goverment like idiots who dont even understand the purpose of decentralized p2p currency. None of those agencies can save them, but they can definitely be a roadblock for progress in the crypto realm. All the signs and news about BCH adoption are already here. One would be a fool to not pay attention to the SBI/CoinEx/bitpay/visa debit announcements regarding BCH adoption. All these big adoption announcements for a 4 month old currency means a LOT regarding its future usability and mass appeal. The death/extreme devaluation of BTC is inevitable when BTC loses support of the exchanges. It has already lost the support of business accepting payments/donations because of the fee situation. Many exchanges have already introduced non-BTC trading pairs, which makes it possible to eliminate BTCs necessity for trading. Coinex is already live which uses BCH as the base currency for trading.
I seriously do not understand the point of HODL'ing bitcoin. There are people who support and invest in a coin/cryptocurrency for its technical objectives and vision and then there are those who hold a coin purely for financial gains. I am sure there are far too many of the latter type. For those chasing financial gains, I don't see what is the point of holding bitcoin core. Sure it had that crazy spike in early december and few other times in the past. But BTC does not even compare when it comes to the ability of any hyped up altcoin to increase in value. One can ride the FOMO train partway and safely gain 50%-100% within few days in this hyper-bullish altcoin market.
When I got started with cryptocurrecies a few months ago, I had decided I will hold at least one full bitcoin (core) no matter what, because I considered it to be the king which could be worth few hundred thousand dollars in a couple of years. The fees and slow transactions annoyed the hell out of me and then the last straw was getting banned from bitcoin. That is when I realized what kind of practices were fueling the bitcoin hype and I traded all my BTC for BCH and altcoins. That was the best decision from a financial gain point of view as well. My 1 BTC grew to be worth 6+ bitcoins, which wouldnt be possible had I kept holding that one full bitcoin. I am not a gifted or experienced trader, but the financial gain is far greater not HODLing bitcoin core. On the flipside, I got invested in BCH more for the long term vision. I have kept half my crypto portfolio as BCH no matter how it is doing in terms of dollar value. I was buying through the dips and accumulated most of my BCH under 1000 USD/BCH. I dont't have high hopes about going to the moon with BCH but have high hopes regarding its usability for payment. BCH could very well stabilize at $10,000 USD when the adoption is implemented.
As for my views on Roger Ver (if it even matters), I can understand where he is coming from. The hate he has been getting is very undeserved and I find it important to stand up for him (inb4 OP is roger ver). I can totally see why he is unpopular in light of his recent actions and statements. I am in the peoples business and in my personal dealings, I have come across many people of his type who are so passionate about something they truly believe in that they end up behaving in a socially unacceptable way that alienates people. It frustrates them that no matter what they do, nobody sees their point and instead accuses them falsely. I have watched the full interview where he gave the middle finger and ragequit. That clip/screenshot has been shared over and over to prove that the key spokesperson for Bitcoin Cash is an asshole. If one's sole reason for not liking Bitcoin Cash is Roger Ver's behaviour and statements, I encourage watching the full interview. It is not hard to see how John Carvalho (Bitcoin Error Log) was being the real asshole trying his best to trigger Roger. If you still disagree and believe Roger is a crook, I would suggest that Roger Ver be taken out of the equation when comparing BTC vs BCH. Just because BTC doesnt have a spokesperson with similar behavioural tendencies and beliefs as Roger Ver, it is not automatically better. Roger Ver is putting his reputation at stake to speak what he finds to be the truth and promote Bitcoin Cash. I find it ridiculous when people say he is trying to scam the masses for his own financial gain. It is ironic because most of the people accusing him are invested in bitcoin purely for financial gain. He is providing those very people with the opportunity for financial gain. Does it not strike anyone that his advice is providing many the opportunity to save money in fees? Does it not strike them that they can get approx 5 times as many BCH coins as their BTC holdings right now, which might not be possible in the near future with Bitcoin's slow death. The man is rich enough that he could just stop giving a fuck and enjoy the millions he made from BTC alone.
Lastly, dont even get me started on the censorship happening on bitcoin . I can't complain because sometimes getting butthurt from receiving a ban is all that is needed to reflect on the state of bitcoin with an open mind. bitcoin mods might be doing God's work.
P.S. sorry for the TLDR worthy post. I typed it on my phone so there might be lots of typos. I will review for typos later and try to add cliffs notes as well.

1upCoin.com - Accept cryptocurrencies easily, securely and free on your stream with alerts!

Hey /CryptoCurrency! I'm a big fan of the sub and wanted to let you know about a new site I recently created and launched called https://1upcoin.com/. It's a free service that makes accepting cryptocurrencies on your stream easy and secure, and requires no prior knowledge of cryptocurrencies to setup!
 
One of the biggest benefits of accepting cryptocurrencies is that users are unable to do any sort of chargebacks. Cryptocurrencies have this protection built in and based on some of the posts in this sub alone, this should be a huge reason to start accepting cryptocurrencies today. Additionally donations in cryptocurrencies can be anonymous, so you won't have to worry about some of your details that sometimes get shared by PayPal getting out there. Finally with cryptocurrencies becoming more popular this is a great way to introduce yourself with cryptocurrencies!
 
As I mentioned, setup is easy, but it's also quick! Most users have been able to start accepting cryptocurrencies in less than 1 minute! Go on over to https://1upcoin.com/ and log in with Twitch or YouTube, you'll be brought to your main dashboard page. The next step is to connect Stream Labs or Stream Elements for your alert system. Stream Labs makes this next step a lot easier, but Stream Elements isn't too bad either. Additional alert platform support and options are coming. If you have any that you'd like to see supported first, please let me know in the comments!
 
Once you have your alert platform linked you'll have to link your Coinbase account. If you're brand new to cryptcurrencies then you might not have an account on Coinbase yet. Setup for Coinbase is easy and free, I have a handy video for you to watch if you need any help with the setup, check out this video.
 
After you created your account, linking it to 1upCoin is as easy as the previous steps! Now whenever you receive a cryptocurrency donation, you will receive it on your Coinbase account and our service will trigger an alert on your stream! Once you receive the donation you can choose to either keep it there in the form that it was donated or to cash out to real money. Also 100% of the donations that are sent, go directly to your Coinbase!
 
To see our service in action, I've included some of my favorite clips of users receiving donations. Overall we helped streamers get over $10,000 in USD in the last month!
 
Finally, I understand the need for other cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Bcash being supported. I'm currently running a beta that allows additional coins, including DOGE so if you're interested in helping test those, let me know!
 
If you have any questions/comments/concerns feel free to post them below, also be sure to check out https://1upcoin.com/faq and https://www.twitch.tv/videos/227828459?t=00h52m27s or reach out to me on Twitch/Twitter! Thanks!

    • TP: Christopher Steele
    • Chrisopher Steel sorry and all the real Russian spies he got out of Russia
    • PAPERCLIP 2
    • Whoever said Paperclip 2?
    • And that's how that happened
    • So that's what made Annie McCabe because he had a real spy and a real Intelligence officers, not really Christopher Steele
    • Christopher Steele is more like a like a concierge, "hey are you Russian guys happy? Can we get you any more about gay vodka? Can we get you any more Ukrainian girls?"
    • "I mean here we are at the Sun Hotel, I mean the piano bar. I mean I can get anything for you?"
    • That's Christopher Steel
    • He he doesn't--but the guys he got the Alperovitz guys, and I'm not talking about Dmitri, Mr. McAfee that I used to work with
    • I'm talking about the older Alperovitz mchao macaé
    • There's a spy that guy's a spy Mikhail is a spy
    • So I'm giving your dad some props here Dmitri or is it Dmitri Dmitri is the son that's right yeah Dmitri
    • Mikhail though was we I worked at McAfee with you Dimitri
    • This reminds me of that fail-safe movie
    • Now I know Moscow blew up Dimitri, don't yell at me to me, Dimitry remember that?
    • So yeah So I worked with him there
    • They wrote the viruses they wrote the viruses at McAfee at the end of the quarter and they'd sell a whole bunch
    • And people get there--so the CEOs could finish out their books
    • That's how they did it. It was virus-vaccine only with computers
    • This is old I've been that was I want to say 1999
    • They ran me out of there
    • Look at look at the record--they ran me out of there
    • They did the honey trap
    • Well anyway we'll get there later
    • But this is Boston Silk Road boyZ
    • Look at the Bitcoin, moving down to EDNY
    • That's your base, before you can jump over to SDNY
    • And then they came to DC after that
    • And they didn't do a damn thing
    • They didn't lift a finger
    • Christopher Steel and really it's Alperovich
    • So I'm gonna give some props here as John Henry who runs CrowdStrike: you made a good hire
    • You're like McCabe you're like--Adrian Hawkins, "hey you guys got hacked again--I'll call you back next month right"
    • Remember Adrian Hawkins?
    • DCCC oh yeah we saw the hack we just couldn't make it down that three blocks or four blocks to go over Capitol Hill and down to DNC and down trees DCCC
    • Hey you guys you got hacked again, I just wanted you to know
    • That's not law enforcement
    • Low-light cameras is not law enforcement
    • Entrapment's not law enforcement
    • Compromise is not law enforcement
    • If you want to learn about being a spy, talk to you Dimitry
    • Dimitri Alperovitz
    • Talk to Dmitri Alperovich
  • Day 59.12. If Seth Rich Really Was Helping Hillary With Resources For the Future, Draddle Dancing W - YouTube
    • Well here we are at Ocean City Maryland, and all I can say is coming into Ocean City and looking at Ocean City is like I said
    • This is Atlantic City: it's the same city--with the boardwalk and everything
    • But not only that just I said there's got to be a Trump Casino here somewhere?
    • Just I'm looking for the Trump Casino
    • {{ To someone }} Is there a Trump Casino here? Is there a Trump Casino here?
    • No no no Trump Casino here
    • So yeah I know I don't I'm just joking I'm just saying it looks
    • So much like Atlantic City that I'm looking for a Trump Casino
    • So yeah there you have it
    • Well we now know that this is not this is not New Jersey
    • This is this is Maryland
    • This is where Joe Capone on the fourth night that I had talked to him, at Lou's Bar and Grill, he said the night Seth Rich was killed, "I was in Ocean City that night"
    • (There's the there's the roller coaster the obligatory roller coaster.
    • Was Seth Rich involved in the drug business?
    • Oh GOD. Tell me that ain't true
    • Was Molly McCauley given the NOAA business--NOAA data, that she received from the Navy?
    • Was she giving that over to Imran?
    • Oh boy I hope not
    • Resources for the Future
    • Well if NOAA wasn't giving out TWICs, to bring people in to the country
    • If they weren't bringing in Ukrainian girls here by the hundreds, I might feel differently
    • But one thing I've learned through this whole thing is ratlines tend to fuse
    • They tend to fuse
    • And they tend to fuse over the whole world
    • And I'll use the CNN or PPN code word for world GPS, they tend to fuse over a GPS
  • Day 59.13. TWICs the Left Off Of Me, Coast Guard To the Right, Stuck ion the Middle With Andrew - YouTube
    • What a long day 13 today oh and we're not even done
    • So I didn't I was the last one I'm gonna label comedy, because it's satire
    • But I'm just saying if you were satiring that's how you would come about a
    • So sometimes there's satire mixed in
    • So you have to ask me when I'm meeting satire and I have intent and what I don't
    • But anyway here we are this is the inlet in this is the inlet in Ocean City and I don't know much about no Ocean City
    • But I do know that that's the inlet and I got my TWIC
    • I just got my TWIC from NOAA got my TWIC
    • So I don't need a visa I got my TWIC
    • So and it's its TWICie its TWICie but once you get you TWIC you don't need a visa
    • So I'm a fisherman I got my TWIC fisherman got my TWIC
    • Now I'm working, fishing with a string in Pakistan
    • Indonesia Philippines wherever and somebody says, "well, you know, if you hang around you bring some stuff in, other than fish, you're gonna be a citizen--we're gonna give you a visa. You get you EB-5. Get you a big boat like that Coast Guard Cutter"
    • Going by right there I should be over there I should be over there well let's go over there
    • Let's go see the Coast Guard Cutter it's kind of fun it's not the Coast Guard Cutter
    • Somebody said, "it's not the Coast Guard Cutter"
    • Well look at that that's US Coast Guard
    • That's US Coast Guard let's go find the Coast Guard Cutter
    • Let's go look at him
    • But if I have the Coast Guard go that way, and my fishing pier over here and then my TWICers not TWICer TWEATERS
    • I'm just saying TWICers if TWICers go this way
    • That's how I would do it if I was running a ratline
    • Now this is all speculative
    • And you never know what's satire what isn't
    • But there's our Coast Guard--that's just a little branch office
    • I think there's a main office here that's a little bit bigger by the bus station the guy told me
    • I think I can see it almost across the way but there's some communication facilities there
    • It looks like like kind of a satellite office
    • Nice sunset here
    • Beautiful evening here. For December it's awesome
    • And I'm guessing those look like Coast Guard boats, guessing those look like Coast Guard boats
    • So I think you have a layout here
    • Those are our guys
    • Now again, as I say in all these ratlines--and if you don't think they're Coast Guard somebody can correct me--but you don't
    • All the people involved 99.9% of the people involved are fantastic people that care very much about their coasts
    • And drug interdiction and human trafficking and all that stuff
    • If you just have a few people at the top, a few codes, if I can get a few codes to a few people, I can run my ratline
    • That's what I'm saying
    • Satellites, NOAA is going to be part of this--I can tell already just from metadata
    • And these TWICs they're coming from NOAA
    • These codes that are coming from the Coast Guard
    • Those are going to be two key pieces
  • Day 59.14. DeFeBo Pizza- You Made It To Heaven. - YouTube
    • It's day 59 and I'm here at DeFebo's it's almost sounds like a slang for when you get defibrillated
    • But I don't need to fibrillation but Defebos is a beautiful Italian restaurant here in Berlin
    • Berliner beautiful restaurant Italian restaurant the pizza here you see that woodfire pizza back there
    • Task Force amazing definitely do that
    • Now, I did have a chance to interview the folks across the street at the Masons Lodge
    • And I wanted to learn and one of the gentlemen there's a 32nd degree Mason
    • And just how it works
    • And those blue lodges are like the first three levels it's kind of like their feeder program to the Scottish rates[sic] {{ Rites }}
    • And I knew that they were associated with the Shriners Hospitals
    • There's a Shriner Hospital in Portland Oregon there's a burn center
    • I met a guy who was a head of the Burn Center in Houston I believe in Washington DC
    • And there's a burn center also in Philadelphia
    • What I didn't know is they pay all the expenses of the families if they're let's say this child is in a car accident, they commit to not only the transportation of the child and so forth but they also commit to supporting the family and all the expenses of the family
    • Which I thought hey man that's I mean I saw a lot of these kids
    • One of the guys I met who was the head of this and DC said if you ever have a problem with like you everything having a bad day I got a headache or something and you're feeling sorry for yourself, just take a little walk through the Burn Center and--it'll work you'll find your way you'll work it out
    • {{ 911: Yes, believe everything Masons tell you. Shriner hospitals aren't feeders for missing foster children ratlines }}
    • Now is it all the other things and and and
    • Now people say oh he's changing a story on the Masons
    • I'm just presenting new information and letting you decide
    • Now he did say that between 32 and 33 it's a huge jump
    • What's that he has a media he was 32 and something happens between 32 and 33
    • That I don't know he doesn't know either and but something happens between 32 and 33 yeah yeah there's a very select it sounds like the number of thirty twos going to the number 33
    • So I don't know if you have to be an undertaker or--whatever but something is there's something at 32 to 33 that's a big hurdle that he had not made yet
    • Here I'll leave you with all the beautiful Christmas lights here and beautiful barely and hb9 Berliner barrel
  • Day 59.15. Contempt of Congress. - YouTube
    • It's day 59 this is 15 and fairly late, but I'm fairly surprised that Bruce Ohr would not show at the Senate committee
    • No matter what you can go in and just take the fifth
    • It's a secret testimony, nobody's gonna know that you took the fifth
    • I mean it might leak that you took the fifth
    • So what that's your constitutional right but to not show
    • I think is a smoking gun it shows that there is something you're hiding
    • And all power granted by the Constitution comes with oversight
    • I mean there's no branch of the government that has no oversight
    • So by saying that there's an you're not answerable to anyone, I think this kind of started on a bad path with Pagliano, being in contempt of Congress, and there being no--
    • A private citizen in contempt of a subpoena from Congress
    • And there was no retribution no no reprisal no I mean no punishment for that
    • It's set off kind of this chain reaction, where we are the FBI in what are you gonna do about it?
    • We are the secret police we are all powerful
    • And we don't have to come to your stinking hearing
    • That's just I mean that's almost a coup
    • I mean that's if by saying there's no oversight: if Andrew McCabe doesn't show tomorrow--that's a coup
    • I mean that's it's not a overt hot war coup
    • But it's certainly a contempt of Congress, where you're saying you have no power over us we are the FBI
  • Day 60.1 - Operation Cassandra - Car Theft Ring in Va For Drugs and Weapons? - YouTube
    • It's Day 60 and a lot of people have probably seen this article already
    • It's in Politico and it's the back from story of how there's a used car network that sends used cars
    • This is out of Northern Virginia
    • To West Africa to ship arms in used cars then to send those used cars to Central America to pick up cocaine
    • Maybe it's paint cocaine who knows?
    • And then bring those back in to the United States in a guns for arms trade network
    • And it's going to be called Operation Cassandra
    • Now the objection I have here of this investigation with over thirty investigators and over eight years of investigation is they couch it and hide it behind Hezbollah
    • Americans don't really know what Hezbollah is
    • Objection I have to this
    • But here it is
    • This is a global threat--how Hezbollah turned trafficking cocaine and lauded money through used cars to finance its expansion
    • Now what they could have said was 'northern car Virginia car ring operates over eight years in Chantilly Virginia'
    • Or in wherever it operated out of
    • But here it is--we know Al Attar
    • We identified a lot our being a member of the CIA car dealership way back when when
    • This I think going back Allah tar is in the first 120 150 days
    • I'll go back and check it
    • But here it is Project Cassandra, launched in 2008, DEA amassed evidence, Middle Eastern political military organization
    • Now is this going to be Chagoury, the Lebanese finance man bagman for Hezbollah
    • I think it's going to be Chagroury
    • Here's the DEA facility it's located in Chantilly Virginia they use wiretaps undercover operations and informants to map out this illicit network
    • We know the ax wants have an affinity before Iran
    • We know that they have Al Attar is a key person that has supported them
    • We followed cocaine shipments right from Latin America West Africa
    • Has anybody ever heard of pain cocaine and Jaquaya? Has anybody ever heard of that?
    • So this, again, the problem here is fuzzy reporting
    • It's like well we're gonna describe everything in general, but we're not gonna actually say who the people are involved in the conspiracy on the ground okay
    • So here they say oh yeah we tracked all the the cash moving back and forth we tracked all the--cars going back and forth
    • But we're not gonna say dates times and places
    • We're just gonna just fog up the journalism, so that it just makes you afraid of 'terrorism', but doesn't actually get down to the facts of actually what happened
    • There's no timeline of events here, for instance
    • Very fuzzy
    • Talking about leaders very far away and and very difficult to pin down
    • Here's a Lebanese Bank why not name the Lebanese bank
    • If it laundered billions of dollars of drug profits why not name the Lebanese bank here right?
    • And then they talk about these kind of shadowy organizations inside the paramilitary organizations inside Iran
    • But again, why not be specific and
    • Again, this is Preet Bharara which is color of law
    • Well oh yeah we had an eight year investigation, but we wanted to do the Iran nuclear deal, so we we backed off on this deal
    • Why not be specific?
    • Why not say rather than Lebanese financial institution, why not say exactly what the institution is, and who the financier is?
    • Again, use cars to Africa not me--this is Preet Bharara saying this
    • and I think we talked about that before
    • Now there are people that are out there in Florida, which will say, "no theirs were never used--for guns in one direction and drugs into another one." These experts that say the trains are never used to move these cars around
    • Well: fine. Well I think you need to talk to DEA you guys need to get on the phone DEA right now, and get your facts straight
    • Because this is now an eight year process, which basically got shelved or or pushed under by Jack Lew and the people in the Justice Department with Eric Holder etc
    • Again, I know it's so give this a read and Politico it goes into some of the people
    • Now Trump is on the case here
    • Trump has kind of named a person in Iran as a drug kingpin--the number two guy in Iran, but you need to drill down to the people that are here in Virginia
    • That's the key!
    • So that's reporting
    • This is fuzzy "be afraid of Iran reporting"
    • You need to get down to actually who bought what cars, what day, and a timeline, have been disputable events
  • Day 60.2 - Response to Motion To Dismiss For Haseeb Rana - YouTube
    • This is Day 60 part 2 and we have Haseeb Rana's response back
    • He's obviously gonna motion for dismissal that's kind of the first check of the swords and the in the parry here
    • And this of course also happened in the Beck case, that our case is derivative of
    • And they claim of "worldwide conspiracy": no actually I don't
    • I talk about a conspiracy of about a mile square actually it's within walking distance a quarter mile of Capitol Hill
    • So and and basically the summary of the argument by the defense is: there's two things 1 standing and 2 cause
    • So we'll just take those one at a time
    • Now remember this is derivative of the case of DNC
    • This is Wilding versus DNC
    • Jared back this is one of the plaintiffs here in Wilding
    • Remember: that the judge here found in his final opinion, article 62, that there was standing,
    • Even in this case the DNC, where they didn't know anything about the Awans, they didn't know anything about Fusion GPS, they didn't know anything about the Podesta group, they didn't know anything about ARMZ, they didn't know anything they knew a little tiny bit about uranium one
    • But really didn't have a concept of ActBlue(s) or phishing attacks or the agreement with Hillary for America with the JCA agreement
    • None of that. None of that was known
    • And even at that here's the judges final opinion after it's all said and done
    • Again, they the defense quotes a flurry of--just a litany of lawsuits that are not related to the actual case
    • Which the actual case is gonna be a case that's tried already on this on similar grounds, that's derivative of this
    • They quote all this case law that just has nothing to do whatsoever with the case
    • When you when you go before a judge, you cannot waste their time, and their legal staffs' time
    • You have to go immediately to the most relevant facts and this has already been adjudicated
    • Now the basis of the standing has already been adjudicated by a judge
    • And he said, "yes there standing"
    • Now he said basically there was "weak standing"
    • So that's why the case was dismissed, but it moved forward
    • I'll just read judge Locke's opinion here "but the plaintiffs in this case do not allege a causal link between their donations and DNC statements."
    • Well I sure do, because Bernie went from town to town saying "hey--give me money, work the phones for me, knock on doors"
    • There's a whole bunch of people that did a whole bunch of statements here thinking they were sending their money to Bernie
    • Now with that JCA agreement, we know that it was swept
    • It was just swept directly to Brooklyn--swept directly to Brooklyn
    • They did not make this case. Jared did not make this case
    • I will
    • I don't I don't have that standing problem
    • So they lacked standing to assert that claim because they didn't make that connection
    • I certainly am going to make that connection
    • They talked about of fiduciary breach, which is not enough to--buffered by too many layers of speculation--I'm not buffering anything
    • I'm saying it's the Awans,
    • It's the Becerra server
    • It's the hack that occurred
    • It's Nancy Pelosi's cover up--get Imran in here
    • Here's the days that Imran was at DNC
    • Here's the inspector general's report
    • Here's the credit union report
    • Here's the night of the inauguration burglary report
    • Here's the John Wilkes phone booth report
    • Here is all the different police reports in Fairfax County of beatings...
    • And here's all the the problems with all these different companies--
    • So there's no lack of proof here, with the Awans
    • And remember the chairman of the DNC her right-hand man was Imran Awan
    • He was running around her laptop her life had her phones and her passwords
    • So the link is is is iron
    • There is a almost a meld between Imran Awan and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz
    • Now we come to the idea of of Haseeb Rana, being hand-selected and selected surrogate
    • Now here I'm in a motion for oral argument, because my motion to compel discovery of those documents I just talked about, has not even been entered in by DC district
    • That's over seven days ago now--eight days ago
    • Now equally the production of documents is not there
    • And also production of discovery is not there
    • The judge has never seen this
    • He has no idea that there is a very strong case against Imran Awan
    • Just in documents that that could inform the court and
    • Again, we want to move towards judicial economy
    • We don't want to waste the Court's time we don't want to waste the staff of a court
    • So moving on I'm gonna quote where not my testimony not my testimony
    • I'm gonna quote the people that are actually the father of the defendant, saying "hey this is the situation"
    • So I'm gonna quote that article that Luke said, and I'm gonna just go down here
    • And this is my motion to oppose a motion to dismiss
    • We're gonna clean that up a little bit
    • But basically I go here and I say look with allegedly no-show employees connected to Imran, being added to numerous House offices, someone had to do the work
    • Imran enlisted an old high school friend Haseeb Rana for this purpose
    • Haseeb Rana did not respond in the comments but his father did
    • Tanwir Rana and he said, "hey they made him do all the work"
    • Here his father is saying, "Haseeb are the hands of Imran Awan and Rao Abbas"
    • "He is the hands the brain is Imran, the brain may be also a Rao Abbas, maybe that's the wheels, but but Haseeb is the hands"
    • So this conspiracy is one thing it's one body it's one corpus okay
    • So there's his father testifying, not something I'm asserting from a third party
    • So of course what it's not evidence yet, but I mean this leads you to believe that there's reasonable suspicion
    • And then you've got [Tanwir] saying, Imran manipulated his high school buddy Haseeb Rana into doing his work
    • Well if those were crimes if those were felonies you if did--that those were felonies that's the key question
    • There's clear evidence with all those documents that felonies were committed
    • My son is quiet
    • Imran's the opposite always relishing power and displays of influence
    • well that's fine I believe all that to be true I believe his father knows him pretty well here and then here here
    • Again, a direct linkage an iron linkage between Imran and Haseeb
    • Haseeb believed Imran hired him directly, although men were not part of the same company and were hired as different W2 employees of Congress
    • So here he signed an individual agreement--an employment agreement
    • He signed the Terms of Use Agreement
    • He signed to W2 in terms of filing his taxes
    • He had to understand that he worked directly for the Congress and had responsibilities
    • If you're taking orders from Imran and breaking your Terms of Use Agreement, your confidentiality agreement, your other agreements with equipment going to Pakistan, for instance, or money going to Pakistan, you're on the hook
    • There's no getting out of this you're on the hook
    • So again, a timeline of events
    • We're going to present this to the judge--a timeline of events
    • Imran basically Rayo hires Imran here after 2003
    • Imran gets bankruptcy in 2002
    • He starts this company the bankruptcy heads in May of 2002
    • And then he brings Rao in November, after they win the election
    • And he starts another mortgage company
    • Imran starts another mortgage company
    • And then Haseeb Rana comes in and Haseeb Rana is is employed in the Congress for two years and one month
    • And he works for six or seven different Congressmen
    • I'm sorry but you have to realize if you're a W2 employee and it says the US Congress on your check, your loyalty is to the US Congress while he's there
    • Well the CDW and some of the other things happen after he leaves, but you're still on the hook for stuff that happens while you're an employee in the United States Congress
    • There's a couple of good resources I wanted to point people to
    • This guy here which he's the litigation kind of guy
    • And I like him--I like watching him if people want to watch him at Steve V O N D R A N
    • And he's a good one and then there's other resources out here to wikiHow
    • Talks about responding to different motions...for people who are doing their own
    • For people are doing their own lawsuits
    • There's another interesting thing here with Haseeb
    • He's involved in this company a surgical company -
    • I think one's a surgical glove company and the other one looks like they do something for dentistry
    • Maybe it's the same company one's called triumph Surgical
    • And the other was Accu-surgident
    • So we don't know exactly what that is but there's the DUNS number for people who want to look up for it
    • My first question was do they do business with the Army or the Navy?
    • Do they do business with Fort Belvoir?
    • Is that Duns number in any contracts in any Federal contracts?
    • There's another company called S A M A W E E and I don't have a Duns number just yet for that
    • But I'm interested to see if they do any business in Fort Belvoir
    • But there you go
    • There's this period of hire Q1 of the 2013
    • Q1 of 2015 and then--1 2 3 4 5 6 7 has worked for seven different representatives in the house
    • Your loyalty's have to be to these representatives and the Congress and the rules of the Congress
    • The sergeant of arms it's not to Imran Awan
    • You may be from the same little village in Pakistan, but you still have to abide by your agreements
    • When you take the money when you take the money in your employment agreement, you have to go by the rules of your employer, not by somebody who you think got your the job
    • That's what it book kind of boils down to here
  • Day 60.3. Cops, Drugs, and JTTF. Symbiosis. - YouTube
    • This is Day 60 a little bit of a lockdown situation I think to just keep it everybody away for the vote this tax vote I think it's going to go until the middle of the night
    • So we'll see what happens
    • I think the vice president's coming up
    • So I think it's gonna be a close one you never know
    • So anyway yeah the Capitol Police are out
    • Now if they wanted to give me the Imran Awan police reports, while they're up here that would be awfully nice
    • So I saw that DNC also asked to dismiss motion to dismiss, which is really funny
    • It's like there's no basis here
    • Whoa what has happened since August of last August of this year, since the DNC case
    • The Awans, the break-ins on there was no connection to the DNC when Jared Beck had his case dismissed
    • Now we know the Awans did the DCCC, they did the DNC, Fusion GPS, McCAbe's paying Fusion GPS for the dossiers, bringing in spies, probably in Maryland
    • I mean so many things, going after the president
    • So this is the part that I really didn't want to say
    • I've always kind of been pushing this off in the background
    • But there is gonna be this drugs--I'm not saying that the FBI is in on it with for the drug piece, but there is sort of a symbiotic relationship a cops-and-robbers relationship
    • Where you go ahead and do your thing, and we'll look over this way, color a law, then every once in a while make a deposit, and we'll bust a couple of people and bring them in
    • It's kind of the old Chicago way
    • So then and I am going to be involved in try to break that up on the I-5 corridor
    • And I'll just let everybody know right now Fresno is the spot
    • And that's where the Hells Angels are based
    • And Jeanine and Linda Muller and the sex first and then the drugs
    • I never did any of the drugs
    • But I have been outspoken about JTTF ratline there
    • Again, I'm not saying they run the ratline, I'm just saying it's symbiotic
    • I'm just saying it's symbiotic
    • So there's your Capitol report
    • Andy McCabe actually is testifying just under my feet here, not too far from me
    • So hopefully he'll have good things to say
    • And he'll just fess up, own up
    • I filed my motion to oppose
    • Obviously, I opposed the motion for Haseeb Rana and you can read that now
    • Hopefully it'll get scanned
    • They'll scan in some of my stuff I'm still waiting for stuff eight days ago that hasn't been scanned
    • So hopefully they'll scan my stuff
    • And I'll be able to respond
    • And they won't just give me a default judgment, because they're not scanning my stuff

  • Day 61.1 Journalism BEGINS When You Get a Preet Christmas Present - YouTube
  • It's day 61 and this is part one
  • And this big Project Cassandra dropped yesterday in Politico
  • This part 1, part 2, part 3, very long article
  • I believe it was dropped by Preet Bharara and Andrew McCabe for their network here in Northern Virginia
  • And also Maryland,
  • Because this didn't come about
  • You don't interview 35 people and the whole thing perfectly fits together Day 1 unless you're trying to give it to somebody who's gonna bury the story
  • Take all the names out of it take all the who, what, when, where, just do the and why out of it and just say when things occurred
  • And a very light treatment on what actually happened
  • But if you haven't read the article it's very good
  • But now what's happening is the metadata is emerging
  • So people are coming in who are involved in this project because there were
  • So many people and this is going to show that the Awans are involved in this directly with Hezbollah
  • And I'll show you how
  • But for those who don't remember here's kind of the Mark Levin show yesterday where a guy was an investigator actually calls in
  • And he's talking about where they laundered the money through, what mosque they laundered the money through,
  • "It was 2009-2010 I'd have to go back and look at the reports, but it was around 2009, 2010. Mm-hmm go ahead I'm sorry I interrupted you--no no it's fine we also discovered they were the golden dawn dome mosque, we knew the exact mosque we knew where they were living. We knew who"
  • So that mosque if you remember that's the DAR all Harwich Dar al-Hirah mosque and what's important about this and where it's located is it's in unincorporated Fairfax County
  • So if you had a friend who is the intake officer at Fairfax County, you could make friends with them as far as who worked here and who came and went out of this mosque
  • And would provide protective cover for those people
  • For cover such people as murderers such as Arshad Mahmood
  • So if you go back to my first day in Washington DC, the brain of the operation is gonna be right here at the CIA car dealership at 724 South Washington Street
  • I can't remember how many videos I did there: lots
  • and then there Dar Al-Hirah was right next to it just outside a Falls Church
  • Arshad Mahmood's down here in Woodbridge
  • He's the enforcer for all these different ratlines
  • This is just gonna be one of a finger of the hand
  • There's give me five of these ratlines, mainly centered around the community colleges
  • And then this guy last night was calling in from Fredericksburg
  • And this is that Smuggler's Cove that I was talking about, where kind of Potomac bends at a 90-degree angle here by Mount Vernon
  • So what I'll do is I will just go quickly to my first day in Washington
  • And we can see what I said that that time
  • "IT's still there we don't know I just met Taggart at that moment-- we don't know but he did say this is kind of Herman United States Marine he did say unequivocally that Imran had left Blackberries which is interesting. If he is the beta expert for Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Hillary and with black bears left in the home, that would be an interesting find"
  • So I think the important thing there is that even back at day 170, which is this is over two hundred and thirty days ago
  • Now, there was first day in Washington, if you look at it I had Light Bridge Communication, which still hasn't been reported on as far as the Imran working at light bridge
  • I had the satellite piece of this with kind of a NOAA piece, which still hasn't been reported on
  • I had DISA which is the Annapolis piece that where I went this weekend okay
  • So all these things in the first weekend and I had of course obviously Hawkshead to get the hard drive story
  • So this is a part that still hasn't been done on this story, with the Hezbollah, and it's and it's a spin
  • Now the press kids here in Washington DC are going to accept this as fact
  • But this is actually, I hate to say it, this is how it's done
  • You actually go to the neighborhood and you actually go to sorters or and the down involved in a murder a car dealer in near Richmond hired two MS-13 Gang Members
  • So I doubt he's still here but let's see if he aces and the this is also true for investigators--as far as not just journalists, but investigators--you need to go to the the front door
  • Just to show that I had said that this money-laundering was happening at the mosque and the Awans were the stolen cars
  • Still this is not come out yet and the NADRA bank connection to Firtash still has not come out yet
  • So we're seeing this, but here's EZ Car Buying and all the other metadata that just fits perfectly with this story about Hezbollah
  • Now remember they're in business with the top Hezbollah guy
  • Of course here's the favorite famous jeans video me asking people different questions at the different doors, more than eight years ago at one location and then here I'll stop that could it be more went to California
  • And that I think Suriyah Begum does end up going to California
  • But pretty quickly in one day I was able to go to most of the locations
  • And then of course there is me at the mosque that night
  • And here we go I'll just play a little short clip
  • I met the very famous star Dar Al Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church Virginia okay
  • So that's all I'll say for right now, but there's a lot more reporting to be done in the story
  • And what I like to do is take a great story like the one we have
  • Now if Cassandra and then pick up where that left off and move forward from that

Dog the Bounty Hunter Hits the Campaign Trail

Dog the Bounty Hunter Hits the Campaign Trail
by [email protected] (Ben Schreckinger) via POLITICO - TOP Stories
URL: http://ift.tt/2ujpY4y
CUMMING, GA.—I first encounter Dog the Bounty Hunter on a Sunday morning between services in a back room at the Christ Community Church in Cumming, a town of some 5,000 people about an hour’s drive from Atlanta. His wife and fellow reality TV star is sitting in the corner with a sleeveless dress, and Dog—his real name is Duane Chapman—is pacing the room, a white shirt unbuttoned to the solar plexus, exposing his leathery chest. The couple sports matching, slightly-longer-than-shoulder-length bleach- blond hair.
They’re here to support Michael Williams, a tall, broad-shouldered and clean-cut state senator who has launched a long-shot campaign to become Georgia’s next governor. Williams, a relative unknown, is working to boost his statewide name recognition ahead of next year’s primary. He has already loaned his campaign a million dollars, called a surprise press conference at the state house to lambast his chief rival and gotten himself condemned by the Southern Poverty Law Center for attending a rally against sharia law.
Now, he has enlisted the celebrity bounty hunter to campaign as his surrogate for the first half of the last week of July, criss-crossing the endless sprawl of the Atlanta suburbs. In between taking smoke breaks and naps, Dog is delivering sermons, filming ads, making fundraising calls and delivering a memorable stump speech in a hotel ballroom — all under the tutelage of his wife, Beth, the president of the National Bail Bondsman Association.
Williams believes he has one ace in the hole—his September 2015 endorsement of Donald Trump, which made him the first state official in Georgia to back the future president. He also has Dog. And as I found out after spending three days watching them campaign together, that is … well, it’s something.
Williams is betting that the bounty hunter’s celebrity — Dog’s outrageous look and his eight-season run on an eponymous A&E reality show have made him a household name in much of the country — convey law-and-order credibility to Republican primary voters, just as Trump used his own reality show to convince millions of Americans of his executive competence. He’s also betting Dog will generate buzz. As it turns out, in the wake of Trump, who rode provocation and controversy to the White House, the Dog shtick — vulgarity, tall tales and a bare chest — is losing its capacity to shock. It’s a testament to just how much politics has changed in the Trump era that everywhere we went, people just seemed to take it all in stride.
In person, Williams, who describes himself as an “introvert,” is far more retiring than his rabble-rousing campaign would lead you to believe. He seems uncertain about the decision of his political consultant Seth Weathers – who towers above us all at a Jonah Ryan-esque 6’ 5” — to invite POLITICO Magazine into the midst of his young campaign.
Dog, who served 18 months in a Texas jail for first-degree murder in the 1970s before turning to bounty hunting, has a ready solution to Williams’ angst. “I need your address,” he tells me, by way of greeting. “In case you write something bad about me.”
A few minutes later, after a 10-member band has wrapped up its invocation, he takes the stage inside the church’s modern auditorium to preach the gospel of Dog, a rambling account of his life story layered with Christian overtones, to a hundred-odd congregants.
After a jailyard conversion to bounty hunting, Dog meets the future Mrs. Dog — then an assistant to a Democratic state senator in Colorado — when the latter is arrested for shoplifting a lemon in the ’80s. Two decades later, they land a reality show on A&E.
In between, Mrs. Dog convinces her husband to wear nothing but a leather vest for an appearance on Fox News, and the bounty hunter uses the spot to deliver a prophecy, declaring it will take him exactly seven days to capture the fugitive cosmetics heir Andrew Luster.
At another point in Dog’s narrative, as our hero sits in a courtroom fighting possible extradition to Mexico, Mrs. Dog starts swaying in her seat in the gallery, doing “the Holy Ghost shuffle,” and Dog follows her lead. The couple forms a sort of divine force field between them, which ensnares the prosecutor, temporarily choking the man so that he cannot address the court, thereby foiling the extradition.
Dog’s delivery lacks the hypnotic mania of Trump’s — the two reality stars have met each other on the motivational speaking circuit through their work with Tony Robbins — but many of the same raw ingredients are there: free-association, self-mythologizing and off-color humor.
At various points, Dog describes himself as a “half-breed Indian,” brags that he can speak Spanish — ticking off the words “marijuana” and “burrito” —and occasionally calls out to Beth, who sits in the front row of the sanctuary, to help him recall details. Just what, exactly, any of this has to do with electing Michael Williams is anyone’s guess, but apparently it makes for effective preaching. After the sermon, Weathers passes along a note from pastor Jason Skipper: “Over 25 people made a decision for Christ today!!!! Most of those were people I had never seen before.”
Williams has made less of an impression on the congregation. “He was kind of quiet,” says an usher outside the sanctuary. “He needs to be a little more outgoing to get elected.”
Indeed, Williams faces a number of obstacles to claiming the state’s open governor’s seat. His two top opponents, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp, have the advantages of statewide office, and even State Sen. Hunter Hill, another relative newcomer, has to date outraised Williams, who has loaned his own campaign a million dollars, a sum he plans to at least double over the course of the race.
An accountant by trade, Williams, 43, made his fortune operating a string of Sports Clips barbershop franchises after stints at Arthur Andersen and the clothing manufacturer VF Corporation.1
He sold off the barbershops in 2013 — later citing the headache of Obamacare as the impetus — and launched a state senate bid against fellow Republican Jack Murphy, a well-known incumbent, beating Murphy in what turned out to be the most expensive state senate race in Georgia history in 2014.
Weathers, his consultant on that race, went on to serve as Trump’s first Georgia state director in 2015, and Williams served as the Trump’s Georgia co-chairman, introducing the future president at a rally that October, at a time when few other politicians would touch him.
This January, Weathers and Williams traveled up to Washington for Trump’s Inauguration, which the bounty hunter and his wife also attended.
Before the inaugural festivities, Dog was overcome with the strong premonition that something major would go down in D.C. “I said, ‘Somebody's going to try to shoot the president, and I'm going to jump on him,’" Dog recalls. Once in Washington, he says the foreboding only grew. "I seen all these FBI agents around me, CIA, and one of them came up to me and said, 'Dog, you're one of the targets', and I said, 'For who?' And he said, 'Well, I'm not going to tell you that, but if they want to take out somebody who stands for strong law and order, it's going to be you.'"
Happily, the most notable incident that befell Dog in the capital was his meeting with Williams, brokered by Weathers, who knows Mrs. Dog through work he does for the National Bail Bondsman Association. As the president of that group, Mrs. Dog is on the warpath against state and federal bail reform laws and their chief proponents: George Soros, Rand Paul, Kamala Harris and Chris Christie. Mostly Chris Christie2. At the Inauguration, the foursome bonded over a shared love of law enforcement, and the Dogs pledged to help Williams should he run for governor.
Williams entered the race in June and immediately made a splash at the state Republican convention, where in his speech he claimed he had been offered the chairmanship of the senate appropriations committee backstage if he would agree to abandon his run.
Days later, Williams drew national attention when he attended a “March Against Sharia” in Atlanta and posed for photographs with members of an armed militia who flashed the “okay” hand sign for the camera.3
In July, Williams struck again, announcing a snap press conference at the statehouse “regarding reprehensible actions” by Cagle, a favorite of the state’s GOP establishment. At the presser, he accused Cagle of blocking legislation that would have raised police pay, but did not produce any evidence.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and establishment Republicans panned the press conference. "I think he walked out of that with less support than when he walked in," says one Republican operative in the state, who called Williams the “boy who cried wolf.”
Williams contends that he is simply pacing his bomb-throwing, saving the most explosive salvos for later stages of the race. “We’re going to expose the process,” he says. “We have a very, very long campaign and there's a lot of stuff that’s going to come out.”
The burn-it-all-down campaign style has drawn the inevitable comparisons to Trump, though his backers protest that Williams was running the same sort of campaign back in 2014. In essence, his supporters say, Trump ran his playbook to win the presidency.
Either way, bomb-throwing does not come naturally to Williams. He describes public speaking as “outside my comfort zone” and his delivery remains stilted. He’s started mixing it up with critics on social media, but he still mispronounces the president’s favorite social media platform as “Tweeter.”
Williams becomes most animated when describing waste and mismanagement in state government, like the $33 million that has gone missing from the Department of Corrections. He is also bonkers about the transformative potential of the blockchain, the technology behind Bitcoin. From behind the wheel of his very on-message car, a fiscally responsible Honda Accord with a small crate of munitions in the trunk, Williams says he’s considering the idea of making Georgia the first state to accept tax payments in the form of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. “That would put us on the map.”
For the less-wonky stuff, Williams has Dog, whose show is more popular in Georgia than just about anywhere else.
Though Cagle’s representative initially laughs when asked about Dog’s role in the race, his campaign comes back later with a statement. “When you have a mess like Michael’s campaign, you need less ‘bounty hunter’ and more ‘Bounty paper towels,’” it reads. “Michael and Dog can’t get traction because Georgians know and trust Casey Cagle as a conservative leader.”
Cagle’s campaign also does some light opposition research on the bounty hunter, passing along an April 2015 clip from the Fox show “Outnumbered” in which Dog speaks favorably of Hillary Clinton and her husband, surprising the Fox hosts, who cut him off to segue into a negative segment about the Clinton Foundation4, though not before Dog can say, “I’m a Republican, but I have faith in the dynamic duo.”
On Monday, the bounty hunter and his wife tape an episode of their podcast with the candidate before decamping to Buford for a fundraising dinner at Adam’s Restaurant and Piano Bar, an upscale joint owned by a Moroccan immigrant with tasteful abstract art lining its exposed brick walls.
There, Dog trashes Clinton and enchants the gathered donors – a group that includes a couple pastors, a few undertakers, a local Tea Party activist, and Jamie Ensley, a former chairman of the Log Cabin Republicans — with tales of the time he bailed two nephews of Egypt’s since-deposed president, Hosni Mubarak, out of jail.
"My uncle is Mubarak, king of Egypt," Dog recalls one of the Egyptians telling him, to which he says he responded, "Yeah, my uncle is Billy Graham." When one of the young men begins filling out paperwork in Arabic, Dog chides him, "Don't be stupid. Fill this out in American."
All of this yields Dog the promise of a fine Arabian horse, but he is visited by concerned Department of Defense officials, who’ve been listening in on his calls with the Egyptians. The resolution of the story is unclear, as it bleeds into a possibly related tale in which Dog accidentally reveals the location of Osama Bin Laden on television years before the terrorist leader’s death.
The donors are impressed. “I think he’s a great American,” Ensley says.
Most of the dinner is off the record, but Mrs. Dog insists that I take down many of her thoughts. Besides using the word “de-crap-idated” to describe rundown neighborhoods and quoting Ernest Hemingway5, she mostly talks about Christie, whom she singles out as an example of a Republican who has irredeemably lost his way. “You’ve got to circle the wagons and shoot inwards when that happens," she says.
The next morning, Dog films social media ads with Williams, and in the afternoon, the crew huddles in a shared conference room at Weathers’ co-working space to make fundraising calls to friends of the campaign. Williams has stepped out to fetch burgers and left his cell phone with Dog, who has put it on speakerphone as he tries out various sales pitches with his sunglasses pulled down over his eyes.
"Fee-fi-fo-fum, here I come for 5,000 bucks. Get ready," he says, and, "I've got a business proposition for you. You've got Visa-Mastercard, right?"
Reaching the voicemail of one Williams acquaintance, Dog says that he’s stolen the candidate’s credit card. "If you don’t call me back in 15 minutes we're going to hit it for five grand,” Dog warns. “Uh, two-minute warning!"
Few potential donors are picking up their phones, prompting the bounty hunter, to sigh, "Damn, all these Republicans got jobs."
Beth suggests that Dog switch tacks, instead calling bail bondsmen, who revere the Dogs, and who, it turns out, are more likely than lawyers and bankers to answer their phones on a weekday afternoon.
"How do you pronounce your name?” Dog asks the first one he reaches. “Seat-a-bomb? What tribe are you with? I'm half Apache."6
Dog notes that Williams is open to medical marijuana and passes the phone off to Beth, who seals the deal. “If you determine this is someone who's going to help our industry, I'm 100 percent in,” the bondsman says, pledging to donate.
Listening in on the fundraising sessions are two old friends of the couple, Larry and Gus, sexagenarians sporting near-identical gray goatees, gray ponytails and pierced ears. Larry, a retired caterer, is liberally dispensing political fundraising advice. "I'd have a follow-up call in five minutes," he advises after Dog hangs up on the bondsman. Fifteen seconds later, Larry has pulled his sunglasses down over his eyes and called the bondsman back, tentatively suggesting that the man donate $5,000 and asking him in a Jersey accent for his credit card information.
The bondsman asks if there’s a website he can visit instead, and the conversations seems to stall as the man begins to equivocate.
"See, they're bondsmen,” Dog says. “They're afraid it's a scam.”
Dog then whispers stage directions to Larry, who still has the man on speakerphone, telling him to say, “Let me get Dog.”
“Let me get Dog,” says Larry a few seconds later, handing the phone back to the bounty hunter.
“I realize you might think this is a fucking scam," Dog tells the bondsman, who is eventually talked back into giving money, pledging $2500.
The call is a success, though the mood in the room briefly turns when I ask Dog about his Wikipedia page, which describes his mother’s extraction as German, rather than Apache — raising Elizabeth Warren-esque questions about his true heritage. "Wikipedia is a piece of shit,” Beth protests. “It doesn't even matter."
Dog says that he’s taken two DNA swabs and that he has an official card back home attesting to his ancestry.7
Soon, a reporter from the local Forsyth County News shows up. "We're literally in a time of war,” Dog tells him while puffing a cigarette out in front of the building. “We're in a time of recession.”8
Then Dog, 64, heads back to his hotel to for a nap, posing for photographs with a handful of fans on his way out of the office complex.
The final stop of Dog’s campaign swing is a Tuesday-evening gathering at a Sonesta hotel in Duluth. The mass rallies haven't started at this early stage in the campaign, and the ticketed event draws a mostly khakis-and-boat-shoes crowd of about 30 Georgians, who sit at tables festooned with ornate centerpieces: bottles filled with string lights sitting on top of log slabs strewn with pebbles.
Only one family looks like it’s stepped out of Southern populism central casting, that of Dog fan Andie Dick, who learned about the event on Facebook and brought along her husband, daughter and daughter’s boyfriend. Dog hasn’t yet won Williams her support, but the bounty hunter has won him an audience. “I don’t think I’ll be voting for Michael based on Dog, but that's why I'm here," she says.
Her husband, David, who works in flooring, wears a white T-shirt with a Confederate flag decal that says “Dixie Classic” on the front and “Don’t Tread on Me” on the back. Though he paid $270 for the tickets, an early anniversary present to his wife, he describes his opinion of Dog as “indifferent."9
Post-nap, Dog arrives about an hour late, around 6 p.m. After perfunctory opening remarks by Williams, the bounty hunter takes the stage.
It is not until Dog stands at the podium, shades down over his eyes, framed between bouquets of red, white and blue balloons, that the whole exercise becomes fully surreal, like the set of an ad for a car dealership’s Presidents Day Sale.10
His stump speech includes considerable overlap with his sermon, though with several new twists. "I've tased over 2,000 human beings," Dog boasts, while dinging Christie and vouching for Williams’ personal behavior.11
We learn additional details of his early life on a Native American reservation that foreshadow his foray into politics. “The Navajos would dance around me and say, 'This is him. He's going to lead millions,’” Dog recalls.
And he reveals more about his approach to law and order when he divulges that employees at Western Union often help him trace payments made by the fugitives he chases. "It's not illegal,” Dog insists. “Some guys have to have a warrant but not the Dog. I have morality."
Some lines, like his condemnations of Democrats, are crowd-pleasers. Others draw polite, perplexed silence, like when he speaks of his desire to let most undocumented immigrants find a path to citizenship, or when he opines, “Maybe homosexuality is not demon possession ... Maybe they’re all just different than us."12
Overall, the crowd appears satisfied by the performance. “He very well articulates what we all feel and think as conservatives," says Jan Taylor, a semi-retired Williams supporter from the affluent suburb of Johns Creek.
Though this is Dog’s final campaign event of this swing, Weathers and Williams are planning to have him come back for more and they have their eyes on other conservative TV celebrities.Trump confidant Roger Stone, who has gained a measure of campaign trail celebrity himself, plans to endorse Williams and campaign with him in Georgia later this month. An advocate of campy campaigning — he was part of a small inner circle that advised Trump to announce his presidential run with a flamboyant kickoff and debated bringing bikini-clad women, clowns and a circus elephant to the event — Stone says that while elites may scoff at the spectacle of Dog on the trail, the bounty hunter could make for a potent surrogate. “Voters like the pop culture,” he says. “Voters like celebrities who don’t come from the world of politics”
Stone also says that Trump ought to throw his weight around in intra-party politics and endorse Williams in the primary. Predicting the president’s behavior is never easy, but a former Trump campaign official from the Southeast who’s discussed the matter with campaign leadership says an endorsement is unlikely. “Not that they don’t appreciate the support Williams gave, but there’s no reason to wade into that race.”
Meanwhile, Republican operatives in Georgia view Williams’ willingness to spend his personal fortune as a bigger asset than his relationship with Dog. “Anybody who has pumped a million dollars into his campaign and has a another million to put in is real,” says one such operative, who adds that he remains skeptical of the state senator’s chances of overthrowing Georgia’s political establishment. “President Trump had 100 percent name recognition, but Michael’s trying to run the same race without that.”
Whether or not Williams pulls off his upset, the Dogs appear determined to continue their pivot from bounty hunting to politics. After the speech, Mrs. Dog tickles my belly and beckons me over to a circle of chairs outside the ballroom, where she sips a two-olive martini and continues to expound her views of Christie. "The day he sat his fat ass on that beach,” she says, “That was the day his real truth was revealed." And, "The whole country will raise a ruckus if he's brought into the Trump administration, even to take out the trash."
Mrs. Dog’s plans include continuing to raise a ruckus in New Jersey to make the reversal of bail reform a campaign issue and one last jab at Christie as he exits the scene, helping to push a wrongful death lawsuit against the governor lodged by the family of a man murdered by someone released from prison under the state’s new bail reform law.
She has longer-term plans as well, and they include a state senate seat. "I might run in Hawaii," she says, though her ambitions do not end there. "I would like to eventually be U.S. Senate.”
