Conservative Purge Continues: Chase Bank Tells Gen. Michael Flynn They Are Closing His Accounts and Cancelling His Credit Cards; Claim Continuing to Allow the Decorated Veteran Access to His Accounts “Creates Reputational Risk”

By the middle of next month, Chase Bank will be closing the personal accounts and credit cards of Retired US General Michael Flynn.  The well respected and highly decorated combat veteran has been a target of the deep state and big tech from the beginning of Trump’s presidency. He was dragged through the swamp in the Russian collusion delusion and had already been purged off of mainstream social media sites like Twitter, but that wasn’t enough to silence him.…

Bitcoin miners and oil and gas execs mingled at a secretive meetup in Houston – here’s what they talked about

HOUSTON – On a residential back street of Houston, in a 150,000 square-foot warehouse safeguarding high-end vintage cars, 200 oil and gas execs and bitcoin miners mingled, drank beer, and talked shop on a recent Wednesday night in August.

These two groups of people may seem as though they are at opposite ends of the professional and social spectrums, but their worlds are colliding – fast. As it turns out, the industries make for compatible bedfellows. Just take Hayden Griffin Haby III, an oilman turned bitcoiner. The Texas native and father of three has spent 14 years in oil and gas, and he epitomizes what this monthly meetup is all about.…

Epic Meme by: @HonkHoganBTC


  • Support “importdescriptors” command in Bitcoin Core 0.21 so that a descriptor-based wallet is created. PSBT files are then supported natively by Core, and the resulting desktop wallet can be used for spending (ie. create PSBT via GUI) and also watching. Translation: Easy air-gap PSBT operation with Bitcoin Core!
  • Remove “m/0/0” derivations from public.txt and address explorer, since that path is obsolete and not used by any major wallets now. We can still sign PSBT files with that path, but it’s an unnecessary risk to show derived addresses for a type of wallet that doesn’t exist anymore.
  • If PSBT input sections don’t contain the key path information we need, show a more specific error message.
Bug Fixes
  • Any PSBT which provided the wrong pubkey (based on UTXO being spent) was not flagged as invalid, but instead we proceeded to do nothing. Now says “pubkey vs. address wrong”.
  • If asked to serialize a partially-signed transaction, we did. Now fails properly.
  • If multiple copies of the same BIP-39 passphrase were saved to a card, the menu would not display correctly and you might not be able to select your saved value. ►…
