  1. I’m not a financial adviser, so I can’t tell you what to do. I can only tell you what I do in the form of these ten guidelines: 1. Keep working the day job. 2. Auto-invest money each month. 3. Stay focused on simple strategies. 4. Set it and forget it (avoid fees and taxes). 5. Look for opportunities in times of crisis. 6. Say “no” to most investments and “yes” to a few big ones. 7. Talk with smart people to improve your ideas (preferably in person). 8. Be confident, but humble (have the strength of your convictions while staying open to being wrong). 9. Educate yourself to Read and Grow Rich. 10. Give back both in money and in what you’ve learned. This is the middle way: not too conservative and not too cuckoo. It’s a path we can all follow.” – BMJ Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  2. WHAT ARE THE GOLDEN ADVICES IN LIFE? 1. You are not rich in life until you have something that money can't buy. 2. School is not education. True education is self education. 3. No friend/girl friend will stay up all night to replace wet napkins on your forehead when you have fever. Only moms can and will do that, she should be no.1 priority. 4. Everyone loves you until you become competition. 5. Never put your happiness in someone else's hand. 6. No one ever became big in life by showing how small someone else is. 7. Always act like you trust the ones you don't. 8. We can complain rose bushes have thorns or we can rejoice that thorn bushes have rose. So it's always our choice to be positive or negative. 9. Nothing is free in the world. 10. Beware of person who has nothing to lose. 11. Don't cheat on anyone. Ever. It's the most cheap and disgusting thing to do in life. 12. Don't make promises if you have no intention to fulfill them. It might not mean anything to you but it could mean a whole world to someone else. 13. Respect everyone. I repeat “everyone”. - Prem Tumula, Quora Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  3. During the 94th Academy Awards, actor Will Smith walked onstage and slapped comedian Chris Rock across the face during Rock's presentation for Best Documentary Feature. The slap was in response to Rock's joke about Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head, which she had been shaving since 2021 due to alopecia areata. Smith returned to his seat and shouted profanity at Rock, who briefly responded, but completed his presentation without further interruption. Later that evening, Smith won Best Actor and apologized to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and other nominees, but not to Rock, in his acceptance speech. The next day, he issued an apology to Rock and the Academy through social media. Smith resigned his Academy membership on April 1, facing a potential suspension or expulsion, and was banned from attending Academy events for 10 years, effective April 8.” – (Source: Wikipedia) But what would have happened if Chris Rock had slapped Will Smith in return?

  4. The Greatest Risk of Nuclear Confrontation Since the Cuban Missile Crisis… Depending on how events unfold, the world is potentially facing the greatest risk of nuclear confrontation since the Cuban Missile Crisis. A limited nuclear war is a real possibility in the not-distant future… Putin Doesn’t Bluff It’s difficult to know what comes next. It could be that Russia uses a tactical nuclear weapon. Russia might detonate a dirty bomb and blame Ukraine. The U.S. may use a tactical nuclear weapon if it suspects Russia is about to do so, an example of a first-strike advantage. The U.S. may detonate a dirty bomb and blame Russia in a classic false flag operation. Regardless, it’s not difficult to know that we’re on a path to nuclear war. We also know that Putin doesn’t bluff. When George W. Bush raised the issue of Ukrainian entry into NATO, Putin invaded Georgia. When Obama staged a coup against a pro-Russian president in Kyiv, Putin annexed Crimea. When Biden green-lighted a Ukrainian assault in Donbas, Putin invaded Ukraine. Again, Putin doesn’t bluff. It would be a great blunder to believe otherwise. We’re sleepwalking down a road that could potentially lead to Armageddon.

  5. Horne is a co-founder of crypto startup Zora. He was one of the core developers of the popular stablecoin USDC at Coinbase. His blog is excellent and worthy of a follow. So, what is a hyperstructure? According to Horne, it’s a crypto protocol that can run for free and forever, without maintenance, interruption or intermediaries. And, says Horne, it has these specific characteristics: Unstoppable: the protocol cannot be stopped by anyone. It runs for as long as the underlying blockchain exists. (Uniswap, one of the most popular Decentralized Exchanges (DEXs) in crypto, is a good example. The Uniswap team and website could disappear today, but the protocol will run in perpetuity. ) Free: there is a 0% protocol wide fee and runs exactly at network/transaction fee cost. Valuable: accrues value which is accessible and “exitable” by the owners. Expansive: there are built-in incentives for participants in the protocol. They incent value creation and make value extraction cost-prohibitive. (Uniswap’s Liquidity Provider (LP) fee is a good example. LP fees incentivize participants to provide the key resource to the protocol — liquidity. This fee is paid to anyone providing liquidity, not to Uniswap.) Permissionless: universally accessible and censorship resistant. Builders and users cannot be deplatformed. Positive sum: it creates a win-win environment for competitors who use the same infrastructure. Credibly neutral: the protocol is user-agnostic. “Hyperstructures,” Horne writes, “treat every participant fairly, to the extent that it’s possible to treat people fairly in a world where everyone’s capabilities and needs are so different.” As a result of being free, expansive, unstoppable, permissionless and credibly neutral—Hyperstructures create a positive sum environment. This means you can have an ecosystem of potentially competitive participants using the same piece of infrastructure to the net benefit of everyone. Consider, if just a small percentage of our key institutions were to adopt such an infrastructure, it would be a paradigm shift so large it would eclipse all technological revolutions before it. We would go from institutions based on: → Permissions → Mutability/Censorship → Gated Access/Walled Gardens → Extractive To: → Permissionless → Unstoppable → Public → Free Hyperstructures are built for the Space Age. Some semblance of this embedded in our dominant institutions would be a best-case scenario. And perhaps it’s not as “pie-in-the-sky” as people think. [Ed. note: Opportunities abound in Web3. But only a few game-changing protocols will gain mass adoption. One of the best ways to play is infrastructure — the protocols necessary for Web3’s growth. – Chris C.

  6. Cathie Wood is the founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Investment Officer of Ark Invest an investment management firm. And while I admire her commitment to investing in the technology of tomorrow, her investment discipline needs some tweaking. Cathie is invested in several companies my team and I believe will be long-term winners. Companies like NVIDIA, Shopify, Zoom, and Twilio. But repeatedly adding to a position while the price is in a steep downtrend doesn’t make a ton of sense. For example, after buying hundreds of thousands of shares of Coinbase Global from $234 all the way down to the low-$50s, Cathie turned around and sold 1.133 million shares on July 26, 2022, around $54. She then turned around and purchased more than 207,000 shares on November 9, 2022, in the mid-to-high-$40s and another 255,000 shares on November 18, in the mid-$40s. If Cathie believes in COIN, a more logical approach would be to wait for the stock to stop falling, give it time to build a base, and begin buying the stock on strength once the bear trend is over. Look, I’m the first to admit that investing in innovative technology is both risky and highly volatile. If you’re going to invest in companies developing tomorrow’s technology, you must do so cautiously and with an appreciation for how extreme highs and lows will be. In Cathie’s case, I love some of her investment choices, but investment execution needs some refining. – James A. Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  7. “One way to make more money investing is to have good habits. But another is to simply get rid of bad habits…. Bad habits need to turn into Good habits over time in order to become a successful long-term investor.” – James A. You can see the attached image… The kind of scenario in the Daily chart is no longer a rare occurrence in the markets if you have been in the market for years. And you can see James Altucher’s quote above. We often tell professional traders to use stop loss and cut their losses: But they won’t listen. We always tell pro traders not to use big lot sizes per trade and not to overtrade. Even 0.1 lots are too risky for 1000 USD: But they won’t comply. We tend to beg trading gurus to test their trading idea for at least 4 months or better, for up to one year or more, so that they can see how their trading idea can withstand all market conditions (including black swan events): But they will never obey. NEVER! Why would you trade a demo for only one or two weeks and then go live? Why would you use your live accounts as a guinea pig project? Your strategy will occasionally undergo the baptism of fire and 95% of floored. Can your strategy survive adverse market conditions? I have seen a trader being moved from one prison to another, because of losing clients' money. After he came from prison, his trading habits show the same thing that led him to jail in the first place. I have seen traders with many years of experience, still blowing accounts, because they tend to trade the way they did in the past, owing to undisciplined psychology. Give them another chance again? They will blow the accounts again. Some are heavily in debt because of stubbornness. Pros who have destroyed numerous accounts over the years would be seen begging people here and there, for funds to manage money. And if you ever give them any chance again, they will blow the new funds. Most experienced traders have mental problems. Why would you keep on doing what is putting you into problems? And plunging into deeper debts. Your trading results show that something is wrong with your brain, and you need to find solutions before it is too late. The markets can ruin one’s life if one proves too stubborn. As for me, I am a trading idiot. I am a certified, pathetic, and intercontinental idiot. This is the reason why I don’t risk too much per trade… My position sizing is very conservative and that has worked well for me. I don’t blow accounts. Because of my stupidity, I tend to test a new strategy for at least one year, and I have seen how my super strategy can withstand all market conditions and I am happy. I don’t argue with the markets or rely on hope. I know the market is opaque and the next movement cannot be predicted. Since I am a compound fool, a universal fool, I use optimal stop loss always and I even cut some losses before the stop is hit. I let my profits run. My foolishness has enabled me to reach financial freedom because I have a strategy that can withstand all market conditions (developed from over 15 years of experience). It can make money in all market conditions. The strategy is the simplest strategy I have ever seen because even a moron like me can trade it (and a monkey can trade it). It suffers minimal drawdowns in adverse markets and bounces back quickly. I not only survive the kind of market condition in the image above, but I also jump back quickly and make money within a short time, owing to my stupidity. And on the other hand, wise, intelligent, and sensible traders are blowing accounts. Doing the right things pays (cut your loss and risk very small), and permanent success is possible. Make money in bull markets, bear markets, sideways markets, and during unusual, unexpected events. I am a living witness. Kind regards.

  8. Hello Traders: Why is USDT so popular? It is the most popular stablecoin and the largest-cap stablecoin in existence. 68,977,092,527 USDT is currently in circulation. There are certain types of USDT, but the most popular and the most widely used is TRC20, followed by ERC20. At least, 90% of online trading brokers now accept USDT for deposits and withdrawals, and the adoption rate is projected to increase further. So, you can use it to fund your trading account and trade for profits. You can use it to pay people or receive payment. You can use it as a bulwark against crazy fluctuations in the markets. If BTC or ETH or TRX crashes, USDT will not. Having USDT is like having US Dollar because they have the same value and USDT is pegged to USD. You can use it as a store of value. You can convert it to any cryptocurrency offered by your exchange, and you can convert any available cryptocurrency to it. So, if you need any crypto, buy USDT and convert it to that crypto. If you want to withdraw any coins, covert them to USDT and sell for money! You can trade it versus many other popular currencies, as pairs. You can use any trading styles you want. You can also trade it versus other popular coins. We have ETHUSDT, BTCUSDT, TRXUSDT, BNBUSDT, ADAUSDT, DOGEUSDT, SOLUSDT, etc. The uses for Tether – USDT – are so versatile that it is now more popular than Perfect Money, Neteller, Webmoney, Skrill and PayPal (who imposes obnoxious restrictions on people). And this is just the beginning. Therefore, open a crypto wallet and buy USDT today. Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  9. 7 Trading Truths 1. Nobody has the perfect trading plan. Seeking perfection will stop you from trading, and the markets lessons will be forever shrouded in mystery unless you put money into the markets. 2. Most of the things you’re worried about will never eventuate. The frantic and neurotic barely ever excel in the markets. Find that quiet place inside your heart and remember to breathe before you put on your trades today. 3. Clinging to past victories will lead you to miss the chart patterns in front of you right now. 4. Admonishing yourself harshly for past failings will annihilate your energy to keep trading. 5. Do the right thing, even when no-one is looking, because integrity in the rest of your life translates to integrity in following your trading plan. The way we do one thing is the way we do everything. 6. Your self-esteem should never be in the market’s hands. The market is an inconsistent teacher, subject to aggressive swings of fortune and failure, with smatterings of sadism. It’s up to you to stay level and consistent, and not be flung about on tumultuous tides of price action. You decide how good you are. You decide how you’re going to do this. You decide to implement your trading plan. No one, and I mean no one can topple your tower if you decide to build it with exceptional foundations. It’s in your hands. There’s no one to blame, no circumstance to use as a scapegoat. Author: Louise Bedford Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  10. What If I Sent Some Crypto To Scammers? “Illusions are something pleasant. The disadvantage is that they tend to burst like a bubble.” – Wolfgang Kurz There are many Internet fraudsters and scammers out there whose primary aim is to turn you into a dupe. They will do everything possible to convince you that their claims are genuine. This includes fake websites and/or fake groups, doctored results, phony testimonies from their fellow swindlers who are members of their criminal networks, and dogged persuasion. What is their ultimate aim? It is to take money from you and never return it and never deliver on the promises they made to you in the first place. And even if possible, they want to take more money from you.They impersonate people and pretend to be reputable and authentic. You may never know their true color until you fall into their trap. Once you have fallen into their trap, you will then know what they’re up to, but it would be too late then. In most cases, they will never ask you to send funds via traditional payments systems, because, with traditional payment methods, recipients are easy to trace and possibly arrested. They will usually ask you to send funds via any popular coins/tokens or stablecoins. Some Ways To Identify ScammersUnbelievable promises: If something seems unbelievable to you, then it is. Scammers will give you guarantees like: “We can never lose money” “Once you send money to us, we give you double or triple it soon.” We will give you so and so percentage returns every day or every week.” Etc. Statements like above are a red flag. Giving guarantees is unethical and it is a very simple way to identify a scammer. Sadly, giving guarantees is a proven method to trick greedy souls, who like to reap where they did not sow. No-one wakes up in the morning and says, “I want to make so-and-so person rich today.” If they can really double funds every day, they should be able to do so for themselves and their family members. You know that if they can really never lose money, they should be among the richest people on earth and they need not persuade small fries like you. They don’t even need to beg strangers for money if it is true that they have the secret to make money out of nothing.They direct message you first (DM) or private message you first (PM): The rule here is very straightforward; anybody who DMs or PMs you first is a thief looking for potential victims like you, no matter the kind of impression they are trying to make or what they want you to believe. They appear so friendly, and can even exercise enough patience with you until you fall into their traps.They offer you free tokens via airdrops: That formula is simple, when online robbers are offering you free coins via airdrops, they will require you to send crypto/money before you can benefit or you need to reveal sensitive details about your crypto wallets before you can benefit.Learn2.Trade (L2T) impersonators: Don’t join L2T impersonators’ groups. This is a WARNING! Traders, note that we never speak to any of our subscribers via Telegram. Only the official Learn2.trade email is how we deal with communication. If you are speaking to anyone pretending to be from Learn 2 Trade on Telegram it is a scam and do not send them any money! There are many FAKE TELEGRAM ACCOUNTS pretending to represent Learn2.Trade. It has come to our attention that some persons/organizations are offering profit-based investment schemes, pretending to be our company. They are using our logo to contact subscribers in order to scam them. Please DO NOT invest. You must report this telegram group for wrongful actions immediately. Please be aware we do not offer any communication or admin support via telegram. We are available via email only at support@learn2.trade. Any supposed L2T employee or admin who communicates with you via a Telegram ID/handle or any other medium apart from the email in this paragraph, is trying to steal your money.To put it in a simple way, if anyone who claims to come from L2T communicates with you via any other means apart from support@learn2.trade (the only legitimate means), the person is a bandit.What If I Sent Some Crypto To Scammers? “Unfortunately, if you’ve sent crypto, it’s likely gone for good, never to be recovered. At this point, because of the worldwide nature of cryptocurrency, there is no central authority that can help you recover your crypto. Make sure that whatever price you paid becomes tuition in the school of crypto life. You’ve learned a hard lesson. Print a certificate or do whatever you need to do to help you move on, but ultimately learn from the experience and move on. Trying to recover what you sent is a battle you will likely waste more time, energy, and maybe money on with NOTHING to show for it in the end.” (Source: Airdrops Blog) Source: https://learn2.trade/what-if-i-sent-some-crypto-to-scammers?fbclid=IwAR05wSjypyI-oBwLXSfKmzIpIiTzbQZrgNlmnfrpphNiioGIPwks-JLC1m4
  11. Successful traders may differ in their trading strategy, but they do have one thing in common. Pro traders have learned to manage key emotions that affect their results. Here’s how you can do the same. Finding and properly following a proven trading strategy is one of the most important steps to becoming a successful stock or crypto trader. But becoming a consistently profitable trader requires more than just having a winning trading system. It also requires you to understand yourself as an investor and how you react to stress, greed, and the virtue of patience. As an investor, you must understand your own emotional reactions to market volatility before putting your money on the line. Your ability to properly manage stress, greed, and patience plays a huge role in your long-term trading success.1. Stress and Trading We all experience stress from time to time, but it can destroy your health and relationships when it becomes a way of life. You are also far more likely to make bad decisions with your money if you’re in a constant state of stress. Stress may cause you to make rash decisions, such as exiting a trade too soon or staying too long and losing money. If you want to trade profitably, you must remove as much stress from your trading as you can. Having a rule-based trading system that works is a great way to reduce stress because it eliminates trading decisions based on emotion. Also, if you find yourself becoming extremely stressed out when the market is going through a correction, it’s a fantastic time to take a break! Spend some time to determine what causes stress in your trading and take immediate steps to remove it.2. Greed and Trading Greed is one of the most dangerous emotions that any trader or investor can experience. Greed will lead you to take outsized risks with your money that you really shouldn’t take. When you are greedy, it’s nearly impossible to walk away from a bad trade when you should. Greed makes you believe that you deserve to make more money from a trade than you actually do. Greed also makes it easy for you to take on too much risk with your money. You might decide to aggressively invest in a trade that is outside your risk tolerance level. You may also buy a larger position of a stock or crypto than you can afford to lose. Greed is a feeling that is challenging to get rid of, but it can be managed.The best way to keep greed from ruining your success as a trader is to set strict rules for yourself. That’s why we always suggest a fixed position size to members for each new trade in The Wagner Daily stock portfolio or Morpheus Crypto portfolio. Don’t let greed make you break your own rules.3. The Virtue of Patience Even short-term swing trading is a long-term game, so don’t try to rush the process. Nearly everyone who properly follows an effective trading technique can eventually become a successful trader—but it requires patience to get there. When you first start trading, don’t rush to buy every stock or crypto that catches your eye. Take time to research and determine if the potential trade entry falls within the parameters of your trading system. If you miss the trade entry, another profitable opportunity is just around the corner. When the market becomes too challenging, don’t be afraid to shift your portfolio to cash until conditions improve. Cash is always a valid position. In fact, the most successful traders we know are out of the market more than they are in it! At Morpheus, we step on the gas pedal in ideal market conditions, but quickly press the brakes when the bear strikes.SummaryBecoming a winning trader or investor requires more than just about having a successful trading strategy. You must truly understand yourself as an investor, and how you react to stress and greed. If you’re naturally an impatient person, make it your mission to change. Consistently finding winning stock picks is an obvious element of success, but you must also understand your own reactions to emotions that can affect your trading decisions.The best way to deal with these emotions is to prepare yourself for them. Read your emotions and understand how they might affect you. Doing so arms you with the ability to combat them before they have a chance to affect your trading results.

  12. Post-Merge Long-Term Price Forecast For Ethereum (ETH), 2022 – 2025 Updated: 25 September 2022 Ethereum currently is bearish. The bearishness started in 2021 and has lasted till date and will continue for the rest of this year and the year 2023. Even on the day of the Merge, ETH plummeted furiously. The most important reason for the bearishness is crypto winter. During crypto winter, ETHUSD will be trending downwards no matter how positive the fundamentals surrounding it, are and no matter the number of developments and improvements on the Ethereum blockchain. When a crypto summer begins, ETHUSD will experience overall bullish movements, even when negative fundamentals are coming out as regards it. The overall bullish movement will inevitably happen irrespective of occasional pullbacks in the market, leading to lower highs, and higher highs. This is what is called seasonality in the world of crypto. There is a bullish season and a bearish season, and that is the biggest determinant of the overall movement of a major crypto like ETH. Seasonality trumps everything! ETHUSD – Daily Chart ETHUSD Long-term price territories Distribution territories: $5,000.00 $15,000.00 and $20,000.00 Accumulation territories: $1000.00, $500.00 and $100.00.ETHUSD Daily Chart: The daily chart shows that the overall market tendency is bearish. This is a kind of market in which short-term sellers will make lots of money just by selling rallies in the market, using margin trading facilities. Using margin trading techniques, going long in this market would invariably result in financial disaster, as the price is projected to reach the accumulation territory of $1,000.00 before the end of this year. The most logical trading approach for margin traders is to sell every considerable bullish attempt on this crypto; since every bullish effort will invariably be transitory. In the year 2023, the accumulation territory of $500.00 will be tested (or possibly breached to the downside, albeit briefly). That is when Ethereum will be prepping up for the next big rally, which would happen in 2024. ETHUSD – Weekly Chart ETHUSD Weekly Chart: In the weekly chart, it is depicted that the price would reach at least $500.00 territory before the next major rally. In the year 2020. ETHUSD reached a low of $89.55 and then reached a high of $4,856.65 in November 2021. The next major rally will begin any time after the next Bitcoin halving has been completed. According to one source, the next Bitcoin halving is scheduled to take place in 2024 at block 840,000. On Apr 28, 2024, 12:16:22 AM UTC the Bitcoin block reward is scheduled to drop from 6.25 Bitcoin per block to 3.125 Bitcoin per block.Will Ethereum Hodlers Make Profits? Yes, they will make profits. In spite of the ongoing bearish bias on the market, Ethereum is always rated a “BUY.” Investors who buy it during massive bearish markets will also make profits if they can wait for just a few years. On the other hand, those who buy ETH in the month of the next Bitcoin halving will make at least 1,000% (10X) returns within several months. So, investors (apart from margin traders who buy and sell, using stop loss and take profits), can rest assured that ETHUSD will never go to zero (even if they invest when the market is very weak), making the value of their investment go down. They will eventually recover their loss and make massive returns on ETH. It all boils down to timing: Some investors make money within years and some make money within months, just because of timing.Ethereum to Reach $20,000.00 in the Year 2025 ETHUSD will breach its All-time High of 4,856.65 in 2024, reaching at least the distribution territory at $10,000.00 in that year. In the year 2025, the distribution territory at $20,000.00 will be tested and surmounted, and then possibly surpassed, since that is the minimum target for the year 2025. However, the price territory of $25,000.00 is another possibility before the end of the same year. Source: https://learn2.trade/post-merge-long-term-price-forecast-for-ethereum-eth-2022-2025Ethereum (ETH) is always a buy, for the long-term bias is bullish, in spite of the current medium-term bearishness.
  13. A TRUTH ABOUT TRADING A couple of things in life that I really don’t look forward to are:1. when they draw blood for my semi-annual health checkup and2. when I have to go to the doctor. Yet, when I think about it, not going could be a lot worse than going. I don’t know which I would dislike more, finding out I have too high a cholesterol reading or finding out that my blood sugar is too high. Hopefully, I’ll never have to compare the two. Fortunately, I don’t suffer from either condition.Regardless, as I was sitting in the doctor’s office one Monday morning, I realized that sometimes I am like the doctor in regard to the occupation of trading. Sometimes my being blunt about the things that need to be said is not well-liked by some traders. Much of the time there is a little pain involved in doing things the right way, because there is rarely such a thing as instant gratification when you are a trader. However, in the long run, you are far better off if you do things the right way. As much as I hate going to the doctor, I know that if I take care of things now, even though I experience a little bit of pain, it will save a great deal more pain in the future. For those who cannot see past the desire to always receive instant gratification from their trading efforts, I am not well received. For those who can see that the information and experience that I provide, although sometimes painful to realize, and even more painful to actually follow at first, will ultimately save them from a great deal of pain in the long run compared with how most traders actually fare. Knowing this does not make it any easier to go to the doctor, because the immediate pain is the same whether I like it or not. However, knowing and understanding this enables me to go in spite of the small bit of pain that it may cause.Each Spring I enjoy planting a garden. A garden requires work. Tending the plants while they grow requires even more work. Even harvesting the fruit of my garden requires work, but then comes the enjoyment. It is always in that order, which is the way God created it. It’s the same way with investing and trading.No matter what your situation is right now, don’t compromise to receive instant gratification at the cost of a great harvest later on. I write from many years of experience and from making these kinds of mistakes in the past. And that is a truth about trading.

  14. The most hated people on the internet: Where are they now? The Most Hated Man on the Internet What he did: Hunter Moore started the revenge porn site isanyoneup.com about 10 years ago. Users were encouraged to upload nude photos of their ex to be ridiculed and insulted by visitors to the site. Moore called himself a “professional life ruiner,” and repeatedly claimed to have no remorse about it. The website stayed up for 16 months until an internet watchdog convinced Moore to sell it. It was then learned that Moore had been paying an accomplice to hack into people’s computers and steal any compromising photos to post them on the site. Moore served two and a half years in prison for his crimes. What he’s doing now: Released in 2017, Moore now seems to be living a more low-key life. According to GoodtoKnow, he is banned from Facebook but continues to post on Twitter, showing photos of his gym workouts, his dog, and continually talking about how rich he is. (Moore claims to have $3 million in the bank.) A quick check on Twitter at the time of this publication, however, shows Moore’s account has been suspended.

  15. When Reality Wins, the West Will Suffer The Ukrainian money-laundering racket continues. Last week Joe Biden pledged another $3 billion in aid to Ukraine. The aid includes weapon systems that will allow Ukraine to defend itself over the “long term.” Just how long is the long term? How long does the administration plan on watching Ukraine be destroyed simply because they want to weaken Russia? By now, it’s a familiar script. Ukraine says, "Give us more money and we'll counterattack." Then they skim the money, wait a week or two and make the same demand. Biden gives them your tax money. Wash, rinse and repeat. But support for Ukraine’s money-laundering racket is resulting in the impoverishment of Europe. Germans are buying firewood. Poles are lined up for days to buy coal. They just want to keep warm in winter, but globalist elites don't care. Regular people are just pawns in the service of the globalist agenda. Last week, French President Emmanuel Macron said, “We are living through the end of abundance.” Well, that’s true if elites manage to shut down the oil and gas industries while forcing everyone to use costly and inefficient “green” energy. Let’s unpack this… Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing The green energy crowd talks about sustainability and saving the planet, which sounds nice. After all, who doesn’t want a clean environment and to save the planet? That sounds like a policy we should all applaud. Unfortunately, the reality is quite different. The movement is controlled by corporate and government globalist elites aligned with the World Economic Forum. The environmental target is part of the climate alarmist effort to use phony climate change claims as a Trojan Horse to destroy the oil and natural gas industries, shut down internal-combustion engines and force countries to use wind turbines and solar modules that are intermittent and nonscalable. They’re also trying to take over global finance and central banks (through the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero, or GFANZ), to prevent new loans to oil and natural gas firms and to force loans to subsidize electric vehicles (EVs) and battery manufacturers. Never mind that CO2 is not poisonous (it’s plant food and humans exhale it all day) and that batteries are poisonous. Never mind that there is no climate change emergency. There simply is no existential climate crisis as the alarmists claim. There may have been very slight warming from 1995⁠–⁠2005 (which is perfectly normal) but there is no evidence either that CO2 is the principal cause or that human activity is a material factor. Here, I discuss U.S. and Chinese CO2 emissions and the folly of the Paris Climate Accord, which Biden recommitted to after Trump wisely pulled the U.S. out of it. Real Climate Change Climate change itself happens all the time and had happened long before the invention of the automobile. The Medieval Warm Period from about AD 950–1250 featured unusually warm temperatures in the North Atlantic region. This was the period when the Vikings roamed as far as Canada and farms were thriving in Greenland in areas now covered in ice. The Little Ice Age, which reached an intense phase from 1650–1725, featured frozen canals in Holland — one reason the Dutch are such competitive speed skaters today. In London, you could cross the frozen River Thames on ice and winter carnivals were held on the frozen river. Both of these episodes occurred centuries before the invention of the automobile. You get the point. But the elites just want you under their thumb using expensive technologies that they themselves control. If that means you must suffer from greatly diminished living standards, so be it. It’s also why Germans are stocking up on firewood and Poles are lining up for days to buy coal in the 21st century. It's more like the 18th century. We need to consider the role of sanctions in all this. I Hate to Gloat, But… As soon as the first economic and financial sanctions were imposed on Russia by the U.S. and EU at the beginning of the war in Ukraine, I wrote and said that the sanctions would fail to deter Russia. I went further and said that the sanctions would do more harm to the U.S. than Russia and that sanctions would actually help Russia by reducing the power of the oligarchs (Putin’s rivals) and increasing the price of energy (Russia’s main source of hard currency). All of those forecasts proved to be correct. I’m not trying to toot my own horn. I just want to illustrate how clueless our so-called elites and policymakers are. They’re simply incapable of thinking even one move ahead. Instead of sanctions hurting Russia, it’s making over $21 billion per month from its energy exports. That’s far more than they made before the war, and the Russian ruble is stronger than it was before the war. In fact, the head of the Central Bank of Russia recently cut interest rates because the ruble was too strong. Of course, all the “experts” said that sanctions would cripple the ruble. Meanwhile the U.S. is in a recession, inflation is at 40-year highs, interest rates are rising and gas and food prices have doubled in the past year. In Europe it’s worse with energy and food shortages looming in the months ahead. Could the situation get any worse? Actually, yes. A New OPEC Based on Natural Gas? By weaponizing the U.S. dollar, freezing Russia’s assets and ejecting Russia from the global payments systems, the U.S. has forced Russia to consider alternative payment currencies, alternative payment channels and possibly a new global reserve currency including new digital currencies backed by a basket of commodities including gold. These projects are already underway in the BRICS+ meetings and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, both of which are centered around Russia and China. Now a new effort has begun to form a natural gas cartel with participation by Russia and Iran and eventually other countries. This new organization could function like OPEC except that the strategic asset would be natural gas rather than oil. Other countries that could join this new cartel include Qatar and Azerbaijan. Russia, Iran and Qatar alone control about 60% of the world’s natural gas reserves. Such a cartel would be in a position to strike exclusive deals with favored buyers like China, which would leave Europe out in the cold literally and figuratively. We need to confront the reality that the sanctions were a blunder from the start. But the “hate Russia” crowd was so blinded by their contempt for Putin that they plowed ahead regardless. Now the unforeseen consequences are emerging and they’re even worse than the critics imagined. The globalist elites and Western politicians pursue their fantasies of windmills and solar modules while serious countries like Russia and Iran gain a lock on the only energy supplies that will really matter for the foreseeable future — oil and gas. When ideology and reality collide, reality always wins in the end. That doesn’t bode well for the West.
