Reason: Authoritarian Governments Ban Bitcoin Mining. The U.S. Shouldn’t Join Them.

A House Energy Subcommittee Hearing entertains dangerous and disingenuous rhetoric against technologies for freedom. If you are a government that wants to stop bitcoin, what can you do? Can you make people think it is killing the planet? Authoritarian governments try. The Chinese Communist Party—ever the tree-huggers—clamped down on cryptocurrency last [...]

China’s Bitcoin Crackdown Is Good For America

The U.S. dominated the mining marketplace in 2021. It's something of a running joke that China bans bitcoin every year. It's not hard to see why the famously centralized Chinese state might look askance at a fundamentally decentralized and uncontrollable tool for monetary sovereignty, especially at a time when the CCP is [...]

Florida Politics: William Mattox: Making Florida the new ‘promised land’ for education-minded families

Orlando Sentinel: DeSantis, Rubio standing up to fight foreign influence | Commentary

Florida’s elected officials continue to prove that they are true leaders and champions in protecting the safety and business interests of our state — this time as it relates to the questionable alignment and investments of American companies directly with the Chinese government.

As U.S. Establishment Fails Financially, Leaders Try to Make Cryptocurrencies the Scapegoat

Politicians attack dollar-backed cryptocurrencies called “stablecoins” and the decentralized finance it enables. The United States federal government is pretty insecure these days. Inflation is high, discontent higher, and no one is quite sure how to sort out our monetary mess. Government agents will not examine their bad choices and change course. They will [...]

Reason: Secret Documents Show Which Message Apps Are the Most FBI-Proof

WhatsApp and iMessage are not as private as you might think. Most message apps tout their privacy features in some way. It is common to hear marketing language about "end-to-end encryption" and "private messaging" for basically every communications app out there.
