The Ridley Report
Posted by Dave Ridley | Oct 6, 2017
Chino: "All the banks are scared of the NY rules."
On October 10 a confrontation is scheduled which may significantly affect the future of bitcoin in many parts of the world. And if you're a crypto freedom advocate anywhere near New York, bitcoin businessman Theo Chino is requesting your presence at it.
The New York Supreme Court is to hear arguments in his upstart challenge against the infamous BitLicense. Its New York's onerous but velvet-gloved attempt at regulating bitcoin businesses. Although, as Wikipediaputs it, the regulation does not forbid "merchants and consumers that utilize virtual currency solely for the purchase or sale of goods or services or for investment purposes," it has (also according to Wikipedia) resulted in at least ten bitcoin businesses announcing they would cease doing business in New York.
A French national who nevertheless has deep roots in New York, Chino developed crypto-commerce of his own there.
"I had installed Bitcoin processing in about 150 bodegas in Northern Manhattan and in the Bronx," Chino writes. "I figured a way to earn their trust… that is why I was under the radar of so many people… and that is what gives me standing to sue."
Ernest Hancock from FreedomsPhoenix argues that NY authorities probably thought they were going to close the flap before any "uncontrolled people" had entered the golden tent. Chino, being a small business, may have taken them by surprise.
"I have a bank in a garage," Chino says, pointing out that this is how Hewlett-Packard got started. "You have to start in the technology world in the garage."
That is what Chino is standing up for… the ability for crypto businesses to start small and easily do business with banks. He has challenged the license by mounting an "Article 78" lawsuit. As LawNY.org puts it, "An Article 78 proceeding is used to appeal the decision of a New York State or local agency to the New York courts."
Chino writes that his team will be naming these grievances:
"1. Violation of the Separation of Powers Doctrine and Ultra Vires Conduct
Meaning that the legislature did not give NYDFS the authority to regulate bitcoin.
2. Arbitrary and Capricious Regulation
And even if the legislature did, Bitcoin is ridiculously small that is completely arbitrary (like asking a kid to get a CDL license to ride a Big Wheel Tricycle in the event he decides to get on the Interstate.)
3. Federal Preemption
And if it's OK with two above, then Dodd Franck has since passed and it's the Fed that can regulate.
4. Violation of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and the New York Constitution
And after all that, what they are asking I disclose is worse that cigarettes."
At its core, Chino believes this case rests on the question "what is bitcoin?" He says the New York Department of Financial Services' argument that it has the authority to "BitLicense" only makes sense if bitcoin is defined as money. He also says it will affect how and sometimes whether crypto-businesses around the world can exist… because of New York's leverage over banks elsewhere. Nevertheless, he says the issue has been under-reported, even in the "crypto press."
"The big name reporters… are not saying a single word," he tells Crypto Insider by e-mail, "They reported on the Bitfinex suing the Wells Fargo; but they are not saying a words on my case nor Morpheus case. From the specialized media: about just underneath of the bare minimum."
Some blockchainers do not consider the BitLicense a major impediment. The pithy bitcoin bull Richard Heart says regulations like the BitLicense actually helped bitcoin by making it practical for Coinbase.com to, as he put it, "easily onboard millions of new people into the system."
Chino sees a smaller picture.
"Bitcoin is a censorship resistant store of value," he writes, "and like every one tells me, is that regardless of what the government does, so what you are doing is useless."
"Now, the problem, it is resistant however, now and then, the government is able to break it; and each time the government breaks it, it sweeps all those people into jail (at least those who committed what the government considers illegal)."
"If we don't fight, we accept that the government will be snooping into our shit and we will always looks into our back to make sure that the government is not monitoring us regardless of what we use Bitcoin for."
"Bitcoin is not censorship resistant since the government made it illegal to create a business if one doesn't apply AML/KML rules (know your customer). And if you decide to use it outside AML/KML, the government will target you as someone doing something illegal. That is why (Arizona bitcoiner) Morpheus is in jail."
He also believes the BitLicense limits the growth of "bit-businesses" all over the world.
"Ask Bitfinex," he writes, referring to this incident.
"Any business that does bitcoin that need a bank, will never get one, because all the banks are scared of the NY rules. Bitfinex transfer had nothing to do with the United States (somewhere in Africa to Taiwan I believe) but the money was frozen in the US. So it doesn't matter where you are in the world, the NYS rules will apply to any bank doing business with you."
Chino says the impact of a victory for his side would be "restoring the censorship-resistant aspect of crypto because the government will be prevented to establish rules. [sic]"
Chino has been crashing speeches by NY bitcoin regulators… questioning officials on camera. Toward the end of this video he interrupts the District Attorney. Others pressure him to pipe down, but both officials do answer at least one of his questions and maintain a calm, respectful demeanor toward the activist. Chino reports that to his knowledge, no officials have yet attempted to intimidate or retaliate against him.
In one of Tom Clancy's novels, a politician accidentally cements the legitimacy of an allegedly-illegitimate president by filing a suit against him which names him as… president. Could a Chino victory have its own unintended negative consequences for crypto users? Could it stem the arguably healthy decentralization process in which promising finance institutions are leaving and avoiding New York? In attacking flawed local over-regulation by somewhat-accessible, somewhat-limited New York officials – arguing this is at least partly a Federal matter – could it help cement or grow the rule of a much less accountable Power, the central government?
Anything bad is usually possible, but the BitLicense situation is sufficiently stifling that there may not be much to lose by losing it. As Wikipedia puts it: "… as of January 2017 only three BitLicenses were awarded, multiple applicants also tried to receive it, but were all denied." That was after the license had been in effect for over two years. If U.S. historical precedent is any indication, a defeat for the BitLicense would tend to discourage that type of regulation from spreading to other states. It would presumably provide a morale boost and a sense that the bitcoin community is now a hardened legal target (somewhat like Apple) capable of peaceably defeating unusually powerful authorities with only a tiny segment of its community engaged.
The practical nature of bitcoin is about more than just price… we already knew drugs went up in price when outlawed/over-regulated… but we simultaneously know that this can make them more dangerous and comes with a massive human cost. Bitcoin prices might benefit from or withstand laws that restrict how people use it. But the little people trading it or looking to start businesses… won't.
"They should care," writes Chino.

Judy's previous interviews on the Declare Your Independence with Ernest Hancock Radio Show:
Judy A. Mikovits, PhD has spent her life training to be a research scientist to honor her grandfather who died of cancer when she was a teenager. Dr. Mikovits earned her BA from University of Virginia and PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from George Washington University. In her 35-year quest to understand and treat chronic diseases, she has studied immunology, natural products chemistry, epigenetics, virology and drug development. In just over twenty years she rose from an entry-level lab technician to become director of the lab of Antiviral Drug Mechanisms at the National Cancer Institute before leaving to direct the Cancer Biology program at EpiGenX Pharmaceuticals in Santa Barbara, California where she had met and married David Nolde in 2000. There in 2006, she became attracted to the plight of patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Autism. In only five years she developed the first neuroimmune institute from a concept to a reality and is primarily responsible for demonstrating the relationship between immune based inflammation and these diseases. She has published over 50 scientific papers.
Dr. Judy A. Mikovits recently founded MAR Consulting Inc. with her collaborator Dr. Frank Ruscetti.

MAR Consulting Inc. website:
MAR Consulting Inc., led by Drs. Frank Ruscetti and Judy A. Mikovits, seeks to understand complex and innovative biological issues to yield unbiased integrated, cutting-edge information for patients and physicians impacted by some of the most challenging chronic diseases. Utilizing their combined 75 years experience in tumor biology, immunobiology of retroviral-associated inflammatory diseases, cancer, stem cell biology, hematopoiesis, and drug development, MAR focuses on research projects, consulting (to patients doctors, academia, and industry) and lecturing without the restrictive authority of vested interest groups, following Thomas Jefferson's dictum: "Here we are not afraid to follow the truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate error so long as freedom is left free to combat it."
On July 22, 2009, a special meeting was held with twenty-four leading scientists at the National Institutes of Health to discuss early findings that a newly discovered retrovirus was linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), prostate cancer, lymphoma, and eventually neurodevelopmental disorders in children.
When Dr. Judy Mikovits finished her presentation the room was silent for a moment, then one of the scientists said, "Oh my God!" The resulting investigation would be like no other in science.
For Dr. Mikovits, a twenty-year veteran of the National Cancer Institute, this was the midpoint of a five-year journey that would start with the founding of the Whittemore-Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease at the University of Nevada, Reno, and end with her as a witness for ?the federal government against her former employer, Harvey Whittemore, for Illegal campaign contributions to U. S. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid.
On this journey Dr. Mikovits would face the scientific prejudices against CFS, wander into the minefield that is autism, and through it all struggle to maintain her faith in God and the profession to which she had dedicated her life. This is a story for anybody interested in the peril and promise of science at the very highest levels in our country.

Opinion by "Deplorable" Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
We all watched the drama unfolding over the FAILED so-called Repeal of ObamaCare by the Republican Party majority in Congress. As our Donald pointed out to Republicans "You claimed for seven years to want to get rid of ObamaCare. When you got the chance to do it, you blew it…"
Of course, the fact that "399 of 435 US Representatives, and 97 of 100 US Senators WALLOW in 2016 election cycle Big Pharma cash" ABSOLUTELY had something to do with that LACK OF PRODUCTIVE ACTIVITY.
"As president Trump says of Big Pharma: "They contribute massive amounts of money to political people," Trump said during an impromptu news conference, turning to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who was standing to his side. "I don't know, Mitch, maybe even to you."
It is VERY clear to everyone in the United States that Big Pharma has to go in order to get a REAL health care system in the US.
So, what did Trump do?
He went to the States and got the individual State Attorney Generals to sue, and criminally prosecute, specific segments of Big Pharma (Opioid, and Generics) sending a STRONG message to Big Pharma. The message – there is a new Sheriff in town.
Did Big Pharma listen? Nope. They called their buddy Mitch McConnell and gave him his marching orders – telling him to frustrate Donald at every turn – to let Donald know "Who is really boss in Washington DC."
So, now, it's the "Showdown at the OK Corral."
Three things need to happen…
(1) Trump has to use his "Executive power" to STOP Big Pharma from advertising directly to the American public. He can do this with a pen-stroke.
(2) Trump needs a MAJOR shake-up at the federal health care agencies responsible for, supposedly, regulating health care. They are COMPLETELY CONTROLLED by the very people they are supposed to regulate.
(3) Trump needs to put an entirely different US health care package in place. The current system was "modern" in 1952.
The United States of America became great because of its promotion of innovation in our society. Except for health care.
Innovation in US Health Care is discouraged in favor of "Five Minute Medicine."
What is "Five Minute Medicine."
There are two kinds of health care available in the United States – (a) Conventional – the one insurance pays for, and except for Emergency Room Services, isn't worth the powder to blow it to hell, and (b) Underground Medicine – that which smart and rich people pay for – and it actually works.
"Five Minute Medicine" is the practical application of Conventional medicine. It is where everyone experiences EXACTLY the same thing when seeking health care for a problem. You make an appointment to see a "doctor." You wait two weeks for an appointment. You arrive for your appointment and wait twenty minutes to "see the doctor." You are taken to a room where "someone" asks you questions and types into a computer. Then you wait ten more minutes for "the doctor." The "doctor" comes in, sits down in front of the computer and begins to type. They MIGHT even ask you why you are here today. This computer typing, with some questions, goes on for three minutes. THEN "the doctor," during the remainder of your allotted "Five Minutes," writes out your new prescriptions, either on a prescription pad, or into the computer – and YOU ARE DONE.
DONE? Yup – that's all you get. Now you can go stand in the pharmacy line for forty-five minutes.
Did that activity restore your health? Of course not.
And, just think, THAT system is bankrupting the American Public.
So, what is our Donald's next move?
Let me put this US health care problem into perspective. If YOU were the President of the United States and YOU wanted to find somebody to solve the problems at the federal health care agencies, what, exactly, would you look for?
How about finding a person who had insider knowledge of both the industries regulated and the agencies that regulate? Even better if that person was NOT particularly HAPPY with the current health care situation and made that very clear?
How about finding a person who was FIRED as the US President of one of the largest Pharma companies – one who made vaccines?
How about if this person, after being fired, had started their own consultant company PROMOTING innovation in health care?
His name is Alex Azar, and he was the former president of Eli Lilly. He was most definitely an insider – pushed OUTSIDE – not as much, I'd say, as Andy Wakefield was, but hey…
I think things are beginning to heat up…
