The Russian president thinks “the modern world is the world of interdependency” and there are no truly independent countries these days.

“Do you think European countries want missiles in Europe? Nobody wants it. But they keep silent. Where is their sovereignty?” Putin asked during his visit in Sochi.

The EU Parliament, he said, makes more decisions on behalf of the member countries than “the Supreme Soviet of USSR on behalf of constituent republics” back in the days.

There are no fully independent states in the world.

On Thursday leaders from Russia, Turkey and Iran gathered in the Black Sea city of Sochi to discuss ways of ending Syria’s crisis. The talks were held amid hostile talk emerging from a meeting of the US and its allies in Warsaw, where they talked about their take on the Middle East.

Los Angeles has passed a law requiring contractors to disclose any ties to the National Rifle Association. The law is one of several liberal ordinances passed by the city, and the NRA has already threatened a lawsuit.

Los Angeles has passed a law requiring contractors to disclose any ties to the National Rifle Association. The law is one of several liberal ordinances passed by the city, and the NRA has already threatened a lawsuit.

Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to pass the ordinance on Tuesday afternoon, the LA Times reported. Companies with city contracts must now disclose in a sworn affidavit whether they have any sponsorships or contracts with the NRA.

Councilman Mitch O’Farrell said that the NRA has “been a road block to gun safety reform at every level of government now for several decades.”

ABT Sportsline, as the world’s largest tuner for vehicles of the Volkswagen Group (especially Audi), through its ABT e-Line subsidiary, is introducing a very special version of the Volkswagen Transporter – the ABT e-Transporter, which will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show.

The ABT e-Transporter (already hinted last fall together with ABT e-Caddy) is based on the Volkswagen T6 and will be officially available also from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. First deliveries to customers are expected to begin in the 3rd quarter of 2019.

ABT offers the e-Transporter with a single (37.3 kWh) or double battery (74.6 kWh) in commercial or passenger version. The bigger battery version seems reasonable, but the 400 km (250 miles) of NEDC range will be difficult to achieve in normal conditions.

Of course this has been happening for years, but as you will see below the numbers have dramatically escalated during the early portion of 2019.  Our landscape is already littered with countless numbers of hollowed out stores and abandoned malls, and it is about to get a whole lot worse.  Retailers were hoping that a strong holiday season would turn things around, but that didn’t happen.  In fact, we just learned that retail sales in the United States suffered “their biggest drop in more than nine years” during the month of December…

U.S. retail sales recorded their biggest drop in more than nine years in December as receipts fell across the board, suggesting a sharp slowdown in economic activity at the end of 2018.

The Commerce Department said on Thursday retail sales tumbled 1.2 percent, the largest decline since September 2009 when the economy was emerging from recession.

Craig Wright calls out JP Morgan on JPM Coin; claims he holds the patent for what JPM plans to do

Craig Wright, the Chief Scientist at nChain, Bitcoin SV [BSV] proponent and self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, is in the news again. This time, Wright has targeted JP Morgan, the sixth-largest bank in the world, in terms of total assets held.

On 14 February, the investment bank announced the introduction of ‘JPM Coin,’ the first cryptocurrency launched by a US Bank and backed completely by the US dollar. The JPM Coin will be tested over the next few months and will eventually be used to settle payments with the bank’s clients.

Craig Wright, however, tweeted that the JP Morgan’s new coin will require an entire overhaul of the current technology, technology for which patents are required. Wright has claimed that he holds the patent for such a technology.

His complete tweet is as follows:

“Hey
JP Morgan…
Patent 32.

Oh, you did not check?
I have patents on what you want to do.
Have a nice life.”

Self-Proclaimed ‘Satoshi’ Responds to Billion-Dollar Bitcoin Lawsuit

News Story Source: https://news.bitcoin.com
The man who claims to have invented Bitcoin, Craig Wright, is being sued in Florida for roughly $10 billion or 1.1 million BTC. Last December Florida district Judge Beth Bloom denied Wright’s motion to dismiss the billion-dollar lawsuit against him. Now Wright has responded to the complaints and most of his responses assert that he lacks knowledge or information sufficient to answer the allegations.

Wright Denies Complaints and Lacks Sufficient Knowledge to Respond

Ira Kleiman, the brother of David Kleiman, who some believe may have been Satoshi Nakamoto, is suing Craig Wright because he believes his brother was manipulated and defrauded. In late 2018, Wright’s motion to dismiss the billion-dollar lawsuit against him was denied on most counts. Judge Beth Bloom from Florida granted Wright’s motion to dismiss complaints III and IV. But the self-proclaimed inventor of Bitcoin was forced to answer complaints I, II, and V-IX. Moreover, Judge Bloom explained that the lawsui

News Story Source: https://www.independent.co.uk
Donald Trump is set to face a challenge in the Republican primaries after former Massachussetts governor Bill Weld announced he would launch a presidential exploratory committee.

The 73-year-old businessman told an audience on Friday in New Hampshire – site of the first primary next year – that the country is in “grave peril” and that he “cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer”. 

“We have a president whose priorities are skewed toward promotion of himself rather than toward the good of the country,” he said, according to the Boston Herald.

Mr Weld, who was the Libertarian Party’s nominee for vice-president in the 2016 election, becomes the first Republican to announce a possible challenge to Mr Trump for the Republican nomination.

An official run could spell trouble for Mr Trump, even if he was to defeat Mr Weld in a primary contest. The last three presidents who have faced one – Gerald Ford
