Virtual currencies, such as Bitcoin, have recently become popular and are intended to serve as a type of money. They may be traded on online exchanges for conventional currencies, including the U.S. Dollar, or used to purchase goods or services, usually online.
The Securities Exchange Commission(SEC) is concerned that the rising use of virtual currencies in the global marketplace may entice fraudsters to lure investors into Ponzi and other schemes in which these currencies are used to facilitate fraudulent, or simply fabricated, investments or transactions. The fraud may also involve an unregistered offering or trading platform. These schemes often promise high returns for getting in on the ground floor of a growing Internet phenomenon.
Fraudsters may also be attracted to using virtual currencies to perpetrate their frauds because transactions in virtual currencies supposedly have greater privacy benefits and less regulatory oversight than transactions in conventional currencies. Any investment in securities in the United States remains subject to the jurisdiction of the SEC regardless of whether the investment is made in U.S. Dollars or a virtual currency.

“Child sex predators are increasingly exploiting anonymous browsing technology to create online safe havens where hundreds of thousands of offenders congregate to stream child pornography, devise and execute insidious schemes to exploit minors online, and crowdsource advice for avoiding capture by law enforcement, according to a senior Justice Department official.
Tor, the anonymous browser of choice for child sex predators, was created with the honorable aim of protecting “personal freedom and privacy.” But offenders have exploited the technology to create massive pedophile dens online that are virtually impossible for law enforcement to track down.
One such site, dedicated to the abuse of newborns and toddlers aged zero to 5, has tens of thousands of members. A law enforcement review of nine Tor sites hosting child sex abuse discussions, videos, and images tracked 1.9 million members last fall. Some sites were adding thousands of new users every day.
How low do these offenders go? One user sent another an ultrasound image of his unborn girl, describing how he “couldn’t wait for his daughter to be born” so he could introduce her with an explicit photograph to other offenders in a darknet group dedicated to abusing newborns and toddlers.”
These are just the first four paragraphs of a very compelling article entitled, “Shielded by Technology, Child Sex Abuse Epidemic Festers on Darknet” written by our special guest this week, Ivan Pentchoukov from The Epoch Times.
Ivan has been reporting for The Epoch Times since 2011. He started as a local reporter in New York City and moved on to cover mayors Michael Bloomberg and Bill de Blasio from City Hall. Since 2016, Ivan has been covering the White House, the FBI's handling of the Russia probe, and topics related to child sex abuse and human trafficking. He lives in New York City with his wife and daughter.
Ivan’s recent article is full of staggering statistics related to the epidemic of child abuse material being proliferated in the dark net. Even the most seasoned individuals in the fight to protect children from predators will be shocked by the numbers of offenders now roaming the web seeking victims to abuse and exploit. And, the astounding number of children being violated virtually and physically will make you begin to wonder how can we possibly win this global fight for our kids.

California will become the first state to eliminate bail for "non violent" suspects and replace it with a loosely-defined risk-assessment system. No one really knows what this will look like in the future, but, at a minimum, it is a controversial move. Senate Bill 10 was authored by Democrat Senator Bob Hertzberg (Los Angeles) and signed by California Governor Jerry Brown this past week.
The crux of the argument is that the current bail system was unfair to individuals, who could not afford to pay a bail bond company to guarantee that they would later show up in court for their hearing. The new system is yet to be detailed. It appears that each county in California will use the councils framework to create their own protocols and procedures for deciding who will be released prior to trial. The county will create an “agency" to create a risk-based system to decide each individual defendant’s risk and flight assessment. These assessment protocols will be developed by the California Judicial Council. As it is written, defendants can be held 12 hours (with a 12 hour extension) prior to determining their flight risk, which at a minimum will create a massive court processing log jam expected to cost California taxpayers at least an additional $200 million dollars!
Join us as host, Opal Singleton, explores the ins and outs, the projections and speculations, the possibilities of how this bill might be implemented, and the impact on sex trafficking, prosecution of sex buyers and, especially, sex trafficking victims.
