Tech & Science Internet Donald Trump Dark Web In one niche corner of the cryptocurrency world, an ethical debate is raging. The topic of contention is not exchange rates or squabbles over which virtual money is king, but so-called “assassination markets” where users can place bets on the likelihood of celebrity deaths. So far, U.S. president Donald Trump, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, actor Betty White and senator John McCain have been the subject of death predictions on a new platform called Augur. Launched this month by a non-profit called the Forecast Foundation, the service is powered on the Ethereum blockchain and designed to place wagers on the chance of events coming true. “Predict the next election, short a cryptocurrency, or hedge against disaster,” the pitch reads. Augur is a free, open source software for users to create their own prediction markets. Contracts use the Ethereum blockchain, which is a form of distributed leger technology that records … [Read more...] about Welcome to Augur, the Cryptocurrency Death Market Where You Can Bet on a Donald Trump Assassination

opinion Jason Sattler Opinion columnist Published 7:15 p.m. UTC May 23, 2018 What isn’t President Trump afraid of? Forget going under oath to testify for the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump even refuses to go on camera to be interviewed, unless the interviewer can pass for a giddy member of his fan club. Since Trump told NBC News’ Lester Holt that he was thinking about “this Russia thing with Trump and Russia” when he fired FBI Director James Comey on May 11, 2017, Trump has only consented to be interviewed on television 15 times. “He has given 11 interviews to Fox News and Fox Business, one to Christian Broadcasting Network’s Pat Robertson, one to Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Mike Huckabee, one to CNBC’s Joe Kernen, and one to ITV’s Piers Morgan,” reported John Kerr and Dina Radtke of Media Matters for America.

By Mike Allen (@mikeallen; [email protected]) and Daniel Lippman (@dlippman; [email protected]) BEING THERE -- “Trump security removes POLITICO reporter from rally,” by Ben Schreckinger in San Jose: “A Donald Trump campaign staffer and a private security guard removed [me] from a campaign rally here on Thursday evening for reporting at the event without the campaign’s permission. A campaign staffer spotted the reporter typing on a laptop outside of the press pen at the San Jose Convention Center and asked the reporter, who was attending on a general admission ticket, if he had press credentials. The Trump campaign has refused to credential the reporter for multiple events.

Every election cycle, a campaign tribute song emerges that has a catchy tune, a stirring chorus, and brings reasonable credit to a presidential candidate. In 2008, then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama was propped up with pop star Will.i.am's original "Yes We Can" tribute song. In 2012, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum had the "Game On" girls, two sisters who could carry a tune and produced a country song whose message reflected Santorum's conservative principles well. For the 2016 cycle, the USA Freedom Kids' rendition of "Freedom's Call" -- a pro-Donald Trump take on an old World War I propaganda anthem -- is probably not that song. Three of the USA Freedom Kids marched out Wednesday at Trump's crowded Pensacola, Florida rally to sing their hearts out as they performed simple dance steps. "Cowardice!" two of the pre-teen girls sang in opening, before Trump took the stage. Another young girl responded, gesticulating on stage: "Are you serious?!" It goes on: "Apologies for freedom?" … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo At Trump rally, USA Freedom Kids flaunt their “Ameritude”
