IT’S OFFICIAL: Bitcoin Surpasses "Tulip Mania", Now The Biggest Bubble In World History

By Tyler Durden

One month ago, a chart from Convoy Investments went viral for showing that among all of the world's most famous asset bubbles, bitcoin was only lagging the infamous 17th century "Tulip Mania."

One month later, the price of bitcoin has exploded even higher, and so it is time to refresh where in the global bubble race bitcoin now stands, and also whether it has finally surpassed "Tulips."

Conveniently, overnight the former Bridgewater analysts Howard Wang and Robert Wu who make up Convoy, released the answer in the form of an updated version of their asset bubble chart. In the new commentary, Wang writes that the Bitcoin prices have again more than doubled since the last update, and "its price has now gone up over 17 times this year, 64 times over the last three years and superseded that of the Dutch Tulip’s climb over the same time frame."

That's right: as of this moment it is official that bitcoin is now the biggest bubble in history, having surpassed the Tulip Mania of 1634-1637:

QOTD: "Five people suffered minor injuries and a man is in custody after an explosion in the subway under the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan... A pipe bomb affixed to the suspect with Velcro straps detonated at about 7:20 a.m. Monday in the passageway between subway lines that runs a full city block under 42nd Street between 7th and 8th avenues.

The bomber, according to police, is 27-year-old Akayed Ullah from Bangladesh. He is now in a New York City hospital with burns to his arms and torso and other serious injuries from the blast...

...According to New York City police, Ullah is a Bangladeshi national living in Brooklyn, who came to the U.S. in 2011 on an F-4 family [chain migration] visa. Police said he now has a green card and is a permanent resident. A few years ago he worked as a New York City livery driver. Police are searching his apartment, where they say the bomb was made." --Chuck Goudie

STUNNER: Latest Terror Attack Courtesy of Chain Migration From America-Hating, Third World Hell-Hole

Brandon J. Weichert writes that "today's attack is a snapshot of our future" if Democrats are allowed to continue setting immigration policy.

New York City on Monday suffered another terror attack at the hands of a young Muslim man who swore fealty to the Islamic State of Iraq and Al Sham (better known as ISIS). The 27-year-old Bangladeshi national strapped a pipe bomb on himself and attempted to detonate it at the New York City Port Authority in the middle of morning rush hour.

Three people were injured (mercifully, there were no deaths), and the would-be bomber, identified as Akayed Ullah, was taken to a nearby hospital.

It is a good thing for New York City and the country that the terrorist wannabe did not understand how to build a proper pipe bomb. If he had, there likely would be many people dead and maimed, much economic damage, and another wave of fear would grip the city and the nation.
And how did this animal enter the U.S.?

MARK LEVIN: Trump is the Most Conservative President Since Reagan

By Mark Levin

Can you imagine – we’re not even done with the first year, what’s been going on here – what this man Trump might be able to accomplish?

And the reason I and so many of you are celebrating so much of what he’s doing is because so much of what he’s doing is conservative.

So much of what he’s doing is conservative – trying to rein in regulations. I don’t agree with this tax plan, but still, he’s trying to cut taxes. He’s trying to secure American sovereignty, which includes, like any country that seeks to survive, securing our borders for crying out loud. He’s trying to deal with North Korea, which hasn’t been dealt with in any significant and serious way by past presidents, all of whom have appeased the various family members running that country. He’s trying to address Obama’s complete historic sellout to the Iranian regime. He’s trying to address that through the Obama deal by triggering the appropriate sections of that deal.

And I could go on. If you’re a conservative, you must admit that Donald Trump has been more conservative than you anticipated, which is why most conservatives – I’m not talking about self-aggrandizing, pseudo-conservatives who worked for Bush or self-aggrandizing, pseudo-conservatives who were a part of the Never Trump movement. I’m not talking about them. They’ve got their own agendas and their own psychological issues. When you look at this honestly and objectively – and remember, I supported Cruz in the Republican primaries, so I know of what I speak – you have to conclude that Donald Trump is the most conservative president since Ronald Reagan.

THE REAL RUSSIA SCANDAL: How Hillary’s Bogus Dossier Made it to the DOJ and FBI

By Daniel Greenfield

We know how the Steele dossier, funded by Hillary, provided by the Russians and arranged by Fusion GPS and their British contact, made it into the FBI. The intriguing question though had been how it made to the DOJ. Because Obama Inc. didn't just want the investigation they have now. They were also looking to eavesdrop and unmask Trump associates. They wanted this to look like a legitimate investigation.

And that meant the dossier had to be seeded across law enforcement.

Now we have a partial answer.

GREAT NEWS: Deputy A.G. Rosenstein Delighted With the Conflicted, Out-of-Control Monster He Created

By Daniel John Sobieski

In an interview with a local D.C. TV station, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein admired the monster he created, who now runs an alleged investigation into supposed Russia-Trump collusion but which quickly morphed into what amounts to a silent coup against a sitting President of the United States:

Rosenstein has much to be accountable for. Yes, Virginia, this is a witch hunt. Robert Mueller III was appointed special counsel after his friend, the vindictive former FBI Director James Comey, committed a federal crime by leaking a memo which was a government record to the press. Mueller has picked staff and prosecutors as if he were stocking Hillary Clinton’s Department of Justice. He has picked a bevy of Clinton donors, an attorney who worked for the Clinton Foundation, a former Watergate assistant prosecutor, and even a senior advisor to Eric Holder. Objective professionals all.

Mere hours after CNN reported on an “exclusive,” alleging the Trump campaign received Wikileaks information before it was public, the story came crumbling down with the Washington Post reporting that the emailed information in question was already public before being emailed to the campaign.
