ACLU Says Government Used False Confessions

States without budgets as key deadline passes

States from coast to coast began a new fiscal year Wednesday with no budget plans and with cash quickly running out, sending some to the brink of shutdown and forcing others to furlough workers and cut services.

China Restricts 'Virtual' Economies
07-01-2009  •  John D. Sutter for LewRockwell.com 
"These virtual currencies, as they grow, are going to become competitors to real-world currencies " and apparently that's what happening in China. These QQ coins are becoming things you can use at the corner store to top off your bill."

It's difficult to say how large virtual economies have become, because governments don't conduct surveys, Castronova said, but the popularity of online cash is reportedly growing by as much as 20 percent per year.

I am now getting to the matter that truly baffles me. What most baffles me is the recent government raid in little LaGrange, Ohio. I have several questions: Why did it take place? How could it happen right here in America? Where in America do they find young men willing to execute such orders? What is happening now? Who is coming to the aid of these persecuted people? What has happened to my country over the past few decades?

Obama’s EPA: politics and lies outshine science in new age of “transparency”
06-30-2009  •  Daniel Heller 
President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in its impartial, objective and unbiased pursuit of inconvenient truths, censored and suppressed one of its own researchers, who co-authored a 98-page report detailing why the dangers and causes of global warming are (at best) inconclusive, because, “The administrator and the administration have decided to move forward on endangerment, and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision.” (Does policy determine science or does science determine policy at the EPA? One wonders…)  Read Full Story

The Extraordinary Evil of Bernie Madoff (and our next Fed Chairman is...)
07-01-2009  •  Bill Bonner for LewRockwell.com 

Poor Bernie. The man has been ordered to spend 150 years in the hoosegow. What for? Who did he kill? A century and a half seems a little excessive for a financial crime. You could hold up three liquor stores and rape a whole convent and still not get 150 years. With a little bit of good lawyer-ing, a history of child abuse in the family, and good behavior in the big house, you’d be back on the street in 18 months.

But all the papers seem delighted. “Locked up for Life!” says one of today’s headlines. The judge “threw the book at him,” says another. His victims wanted him to get no mercy. The judge gave him none, imposing the maximum sentence. He is “extraordinarily evil,” said the man on the bench.

Justice has been done. Right?

'Fight Them Over There vs. Over Here' a False Choice
07-01-2009  •  Ron Paul for LewRockwell.com 

There is no area in which Republicans have further strayed from our traditions than in foreign affairs.

Generations of conservatives followed the great advice of our Founding Fathers and pursued a restrained foreign policy that rebuffed entangling alliances and advised America, in the words of John Quincy Adams, not to "go abroad looking for dragons to slay."

Sen. Robert Taft, the stalwart of the Old Right, urged America to stay out of NATO. Dwight Eisenhower was elected on a platform promising to get us out of the conflict in Korea. Richard Nixon promised to end the war in Vietnam.

Auditing the Fed Will Audit the State
07-01-2009  •  George F. Smith for LewRockwell.com 
But the really appetizing part of auditing the Fed is knowing what stands behind it. The Fed is a racket at heart, a con game writ large " what else can you call an organization with the exclusive privilege of printing money in the trillions and handing it over to friends? But if this is true, what does that say about the state, the organization that created and sanctions it? Is the Fed an honest mistake in the state's otherwise undying efforts to preserve our liberty, or might it be a key component of a bigger racket?

California accuses 22 Midas shops in 'massive' bait and switch scheme
07-01-2009  •  www.walletpop.com 
California filed a $222 million lawsuit against the owner of 22 Midas Muffler shops after uncover agents discovered a "massive" scheme in which consumers were charged for unneeded repairs, California Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. announced.

"These Midas shops were running a massive bait-and-switch scam, in which customers were lured in with the promise of cheap brake specials and then charged hundreds more for unnecessary repairs," Brown said in a statement. "This investigation revealed a shady and deceptive operation that violated the trust of its customers."
During the four-year investigation, agents found shops owned by Maurice Irving Glad regularly advertised sub-$100 brake specials to lure customers into paying for hundreds of dollars of work that was not needed or, sometimes, not even done.

The lawsuit, filed was filed by Brown along with Alameda County District Attorney Tom Orloff and Fresno County Dis

But it also provided new insight on the relationship between climate and fire, such as Western shrublands’ and grasslands’ requirement for high precipitation one year followed by dry conditions the next to produce fuels sufficient to result in large wildfires.  Read Full Story
