Court Authorizes Service of John Doe Summons Seeking Identities of U.S. Taxpayers Who Have Used Cryptocurrency
The IRS is seeking the records of Americans who engaged in business with or through Kraken, a digital currency exchanger headquartered in San Francisco, California. “This John Doe summons is part of our effort to uncover those who are trying to skirt reporting and avoid paying their fair share.”Cryptocurrency, as generally defined, is a digital representation of value. On April 1, 2021, a federal court in the District of Massachusetts granted an order authorizing the IRS to serve a similar John Doe summons on Circle, a digital currency exchange headquartered in Boston. Today’s order from the Northern District of California grants the IRS permission to serve what is known as a “John Doe” summons on Kraken.

Sidney Powell amends court filing that mistakenly said Georgia votes were flipped from Biden to Trump
Attorney Sidney Powell speaks at a press conference on election results in Alpharetta, Georgia, U.S., December 2, 2020. Despite being cut loose from President Donald Trump's legal team, Powell is forging ahead with her election-conspiracy crusade to overturn Joe Biden's presidential win. But the conservative attorney's self-described Kraken keeps getting its tentacles tied in a knot of typos and errors — including the recent backward claim, later amended, that a pernicious voting algorithm took votes from Biden and flipped them to Trump. The initial, mixed-up message claimed in a filing that "machine-controlled algorithms deliberately run by Dominion Voting Systems ... generally took more than 2.5% of the votes from Mr. Biden and flipped them to Mr. Trump for a more than 5% fraudulent vote increase for Mr. That claim — that votes had been improperly handed to Trump, which somehow resulted in a net increase in votes for Biden — was "Bassakwards," Powell admitted in an email to CNBC.cnbc.com

The Milky Way contains more than 100 billion stars, but it didn't come by them all honestly. "The merger with Kraken took place 11 billion years ago, when the Milky Way was four times less massive [than today]. As a result, the collision must have truly transformed what the Milky Way looked like at the time." An image from the new study shows the five major mergers that made the Milky Way what it is today. According to the team's results, the Kraken may have been the largest and oldest galactic collision in the Milky Way's history.space.com
