Man buys $27 of bitcoin, forgets about them, finds they're now worth $886k

 Norwegian man discovers $27 bitcoin investment now worth more than enough to buy a flat

Bought in 2009, currency's rise in value saw small investment turn into enough to buy an apartment in a wealthy area of Oslo

The meteoric rise in bitcoin has meant that within the space of four years, one Norwegian man’s $27 investment turned into a forgotten $886,000 windfall.

Kristoffer Koch invested 150 kroner ($26.60) in 5,000 bitcoins in 2009, after discovering them during the course of writing a thesis on encryption. He promptly forgot about them until widespread media coverage of the anonymous, decentralised, peer-to-peer digital currency in April 2013 jogged his memory.

Bitcoins are stored in encrypted wallets secured with a private key, something Koch had forgotten. After eventually working out what the password could be, Koch got a pleasant surprise:

"It said I had 5,000 bitcoins in there. Measuring that in today's rates it's about NOK5m ($886,000)," Koch told NRK.

Riot Control: DHS Spends $500,000 on Fully Automatic Pepper Spray Launchers

Via Cousin John

 The Department of Homeland Security is increasing its preparations for domestic unrest by spending half a million dollars on fully automatic pepper spray launchers and projectiles that are designed to be used during riot control situations.

In an announcement of a no bid contract posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the federal agency signals its intention to purchase nearly 240,000 pepper spray projectiles, 100 pepper spray launchers, as well as 36 “riot expansion kits”.

The PepperBall TAC-700 pepper spray launcher “features full auto, semi-auto, or 3 round burst providing up to 700 rounds per minute,”according to the company which will provide the DHS with the weapons. It is also “accurate to 60 feet with area saturation up to 150 feet.” The weapon is routinely used in riot control situations around the world.

According to a video demonstration, the TAC-700 has a “strong psychological influence” on the people it is being used against because it is so loud and sounds like an automatic machine gun.

The Truth About the Humane Society of the United States - UN Agenda 21 Connection


 Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened. ~Anatole France

    If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. ~Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce

    If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. ~St. Francis of Assisi

People who love their pets consider them part of the family and as such, many of us treat them as though they are our "children." Dogs and cats are special four legged creatures to many of us, and we cherish them. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and UN Agenda 21 are working together to destroy not only America's agricultural industries, but also the ownership of our pets.

How do you destroy agriculture, including the pet industry, in America?

Answer: Regulate them out of business:

Clerk’s fiery murder highlights importance of armed self-defense

Confessed murderer Matthew Johnson

The jury watched in horror Monday as the prosecution played a surveillance camera video of 76-year-old grandmother and convenience store clerk Nancy Harris consumed in flames after being doused in lighter fluid and ignited by a monster robbing a Garland, Tex. Fina Whip In of petty cash.

“She died in hospital five days after she and her family decided to turn off life support,” Mail Online reported. There’s no need to repeat that report here. Go and read it, grasp what confessed murderer Matthew Johnson did to this poor woman, and then watch the video. Try to imagine her agony and her terror, and what her survivors have been forced to live through and with. Go ahead and get sick and then furious. It’s the reaction decent people would have.

Then compare the results here to another Fina station robbery attempt, this time in Shreveport, La.
“[T]he employee in the back of the store diverted attention away long enough to give Amin's little brother Fayez the moment he needed behind the counter to reach down and grab their 9-millimeter handgun,” KSLA 12 reported.

Music Teacher Gets ‘Paula Deened’ for Facebook Comments Condemning Black Criminal Behavior

Music Teacher Daivd Spondike

An Akron, Ohio music teacher at a 52% Black high school was suspended after posting Facebook comments condemning the criminal behavior of certain "ghetto" trick-or-treaters that annually migrate to his neighborhood. David Spondike, who has been teaching in the district since 1998, had stark words for this year's Halloween visitors.

According to

     The initial post read: "I don't mind if you come from the ghetto to trick or treat. But when you whip out your teeny [genitalia] and [urinate] on the telephone pole in front of my front yard and a bunch of preschoolers and toddlers, you can take your [N-word] ass back where it came from. I don't have anything against anyone of color, but [racial slur] stay out."   

    He then says he "welcomes people who come from dangerous neighborhoods to mine, so their children can safely trick or treat. I feel sorry that they feel they need to do so, but they have been coming here for years."

    But Spondike then cautions against people who come to his neighborhood and act unruly.

3-year-old Saudi girl gang-raped

Via Freedom Outpost


Several men abducted a three-year-old Saudi girl and took turns in raping her before dumping the child near a hospital in a serious condition.

Disclosing the crime on Monday, police said they had arrested three suspects and two women and that more could be arrested in connection with the rape.

Doctors at the hospital in the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah said the child was found crying and in serious condition in front of the hospital on Ramadan 13, adding that she is still in the intensive care unit struggling for her life.

“She has been raped violently by some men. She was found crying of excruciating pain as her body was full of bruises and her sensitive parts were ruptured,” hospital manager Mohammed Ali said, quoted by the Saudi Arabic language daily Okaz.

A Tribute to the Irish Confederates

Song of the Confederate Irish Brigade


 Music: David Kincaid Song of the Irish Brigade

Paintings: Don Troiani (Drive them to Washington/Altoona Pass/Little Round Top)


Oh, not now for songs of a nation's wrongs,
not the groans of starving labor;
Let the rifle ring and the bullet sing
to the clash of the flashing sabre!

There are Irish ranks on the tented banks
of Columbia's guarded ocean;
And an iron clank from flank to flank
tells of armed men in motion.


And frank souls there clear true and bare
To all, as the steel beside them,
Can love or hate withe the strength of Fate,
Till the grave of the valiant hide them.
Each seems to be mailed Ard Righ,
whose sword's avenging glory
Must light the fight and smite for Right,
Like Brian's in olden story!


With pale affright and panic flight
Shall dastard Yankees base and hollow,
Hear a Celtic race, from their battle place,
Charge to the shout of "Faugh-a-ballaugh!"
By the sould above, by the land we love
Her tears bleeding patience
The sledge is wrought that shall smash to naught
The brazen liar of nations.


The Irish green shall again be seen
as our Irish fathers bore it,
A burning wind from the South behind,
and the Yankee rout before it!
O'Neil's red hand shall purge the land-
Rain a fire on men and cattle,
Till the Lincoln snakes in their own cold lakes
Plunge from the blaze of battle.


The knaves that rest on Columbia's breast,
and the voice of true men stifle;
we'll exorcise from the rescued prize-
Our talisman, the rifle;
For a tyrant's life a bowie knife!-
Of Union knot dissolvers,
The best we ken are stalwart men,
Columbiads and revolvers!


Whoe'er shall march by triumphal arch
Whoe'er may swell the slaughter,
Our drums shall roll from the Capitol
O'er Potomac's fateful water!
Rise, bleeding ghosts, to the Lord of Hosts
For judgement final and solemn;
Your fanatic horde to the edge of the sword
Is doomed line, square, and column!

Home Depot Co-Founder Langone: Obamacare 'Defies Whole Concept' of Cheaper Health Insurance

Obamacare, by its very nature, can't make healthcare more affordable and "defies the whole concept" of its key goal, says billionaire entrepreneur Ken Langone.

Many experts say healthy young people must sign up for health insurance en masse in order for Obamacare to be successful. If more people, who don't need as much healthcare as older generations, buy insurance, they will bring down insurance costs.

"Insurance is a fairly simple," the Home Depot co-founder told CNBC. "It's spreading risk. It's sharing risk."

"You're not going to bring 35 million more people into the pool for care and say, 'We're going to do it cheaper.' We're living longer. The longer we live, the more healthcare we need.

"Those kids can now wait for a condition, a pre-existing condition, and now say, 'I want insurance,'" Langone argued. "The risk to the insurance company goes up exponentially because the kid is coming in unhealthy, not healthy."

Obama Lied, 1.5 Million Lost Preferred Health Coverage

“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

Because of recent developments contrary to the promises in this quote, whoever said those words, it can be said of him that he was either wrong or lying; one or the other and nothing else.

Those developments are approximately, and only thus far, 1.5 million people having been dropped from their private health-insurance plans: 800,000 in New Jersey; 279,000 in California; 300,000 in Florida; 370,000 in Pennsylvania; 76,000 from D.C., Virginia, and Maryland; and these numbers are only rising.

The Plot to Assassinate Jefferson Davis

Roundabout via Robby

 Jefferson Davis


On March 2, 1864, William Littlepage was searching the pockets of a dead Union officer just outside of Richmond, VA. But instead of a pocketwatch or other baubles, Littlepage discovered two mysterious documents. These papers, now known as the Dahlgren Papers, cast light on a plot designed to bring an end to the Confederate States of America. Were Union leaders planning to assassinate President Jefferson Davis?

The Dahlgren Affair?

By March 2, 1864, the Union had taken control of the Civil War and Confederate hopes of victory seemed increasingly dim. Ulysses S. Grant was just a week away from taking over the responsibilities of Commanding General of the United States Army. And President Lincoln, along with his top generals, had reached the conclusion that the only way to break the South was to wage total war.
It was with this backdrop that 13-year old Littlepage found himself searching the dead body of Colonel Ulric Dahlgren, who’d been killed earlier that day in a failed raid on Richmond, VA. After discovering the documents, Littlepage took them to his teacher, Edward Halbach. Halbach quickly examined the papers and realized he had a veritable bomb in front of him.

The papers described a plan to raid and torch Richmond, VA. The idea for the attack had originated from Brigadier General Judson Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick was known as “Kill-Cavalry” due to his willingness to sacrifice his own troops as well as Confederate troops in order to achieve his goals. The plan was for Dahlgren’s cavalry to enter the city from the south. After stopping to free Union prisoners and meet up with Kilpatrick, the enlarged force would descend upon Richmond in order to “destroy and burn the hateful city.”

Censoring the “S” Word


“It is a very significant fact that the adversaries of the trend toward more government control describe their opposition as a fight against Washington and against Berne, i.e., against centralization.  It is conceived as a contest of states’ rights versus the central power.”
“I saw in States’ rights the only availing check upon the absolutism of the sovereign will, and secession filled me with hope, not as the destruction but as the redemption of Democracy.”
  • Letter from Lord Acton to General Robert E.Lee, Nov. 4, 1866
Do Silicon Valley entrepreneurs want to bring back slavery, perhaps using the newly enslaved to assemble computers and other electronics?  One Anand Giridharadas, writing in the October 28 New York Times, would have you think so.  His opening sentences are:  “First the slave South, now this.  Is Silicon trying to secede from America?

Giridharadas is apparently horrified that a Silicon Valley entrepreneur named Balaji Srinivasan gave a speech at Stanford University recently in which he advocated “seceding from [American] society” and its looting and over-bloated welfare/warfare state.

As is typical of all statists, inside and outside of government, whenever the “S” word is mentioned Giridharadas, like all the rest, attempts to effectively censor all discussion of secession by insinuating that taking the idea seriously reveals that one must secretly condone slavery.  Or at least be an apologist for the Confederacy, an institution that has been demonized by the American state like no other for the past 160 years.  (The same American state that condoned and enforced slavery with Fugitive Slave Clauses and Acts from the end of the Revolutionary War (1783) until 1866).

Q-Poll: Cuccinelli Only Down Four Percentage Points?

The polls have been all over the place this month. Thus it’s difficult to gauge exactly which direction the political headwinds are shifting in Virginia. But I'm beginning to wonder: Could Cuccinelli pull this thing off?
Let’s start with the latest top-line numbers (via Quinnipiac University):
The Virginia governor's race is going down to the wire with Democrat Terry McAuliffe clinging to a slight 45 - 41 percent likely voter lead over Republican State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, and 9 percent for Libertarian Party candidate Robert Sarvis, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. 

This compares to the results of an October 23 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, showing McAuliffe up 46 - 39 percent, with Sarvis at 10 percent.
Today's survey shows that if Sarvis were not in the race, McAuliffe would have 47 percent to 45 percent for Cuccinelli, too close to call.
In the three-way matchup, 4 percent of likely voters remain undecided and 7 percent of those who name a candidate say there's a "good chance" they will change their mind in the next six days.

Look who Sebelius just threw under the bus ... Places blame for Obamacare-website failure

 Committee chairman Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich. got right to the point, declaring the Obamacare website is “still not working” as of this morning.

“It is the Verizon server that failed — not” declared Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in testimony Wednesday morning before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

She was referring to outages this weekend and again Tuesday, but was compelled to say “I apologize” for the disastrous performance of the Obamcare website since it’s debut on Oct. 1.

Sebelius also made sure to note, “I was not involved in the design of the website.”

Burglar shot, killed in Selmont


Two burglars greeted a Selmont couple returning home from work early Saturday morning. In the exchange that ensued, one of the burglars was shot and killed, while the other one escaped and is considered armed and dangerous.

Sgt. Mike Grantham, with the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department, said the couple returned to their Lowery Drive home around 2:30 a.m. Due to the fact they have been the victims of burglaries before, the husband entered the home first.

Grantham said when the wife came into the house, she noticed glass from a glass door on the ground. It was then, Grantham said, the two burglars came from the back of the house, one of them attacking the husband.

“In the exchange, the husband was hit in the head and received a cut on the hand. He then was able to retrieve a pistol he was carrying and shot one of the burglars,” Grantham said. “The other suspect fled the scene.”

He said the burglar who was shot was pronounced dead at the scene by responding authorities.
