Lockerbie bomber release "linked to oil deal"
08-30-2009  •  Reuters 
Britain agreed to include Lockerbie bomber Abdel Basset al-Megrahi in a prisoner transfer deal with Libya because of "overwhelming interests" shortly before an oil deal was sealed with Tripoli.

Leaked letters from Justice Secretary Jack Straw undermined government denials of a link between the former Libyan agent's freedom and British trade interests.

Federal Reserve made $14 billion on turmoil loans
08-30-2009  •  Reuters 
The Federal Reserve has made $14 billion in profits on loans made in the last two years.

The U.S. central bank also earned about $19 billion from interest and fees charged to institutions that tapped liquidity facilities during the global financial crisis, the report said.

If the Fed had invested the same amounted loaned out in three-month Treasury bills since August 2007, it would have earned $5 billion in interest, the FT said.

In a Flu Pandemic, What Can the Government Do to You?
08-30-2009  •  ABC 
The CDC's report, released Monday, may well create some level of hysteria. It said 1.8 million Americans could become seriously ill this fall and as many as 90,000 could die. In truth, America's national pandemic response plan has been shaped by lessons from the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic, which killed millions globally and did include gun-point quarantines. If the circumstances are deemed dire enough, the government's "Pandemic Influenza Plan" allows for strong measures, such as banning public gatherings and calling in the military to help with law enforcement.  Read Full Story

Latin American Journalists Face New Oppression
08-30-2009  •  NY Times 
The court’s action, in late July in the midst of a drawn-out battle in the Senate over Mr. Sarney’s future, immediately raised cries of censorship. It was widely seen here as a setback after important strides in removing restrictions to a free press, including a decision in April by Brazil’s Supreme Court to strike down a dictatorship-era law that imposed harsh penalties for slander and libel.

Prosecutorial Misconduct and the Problems of the Middle Class
08-30-2009  •  CRIME & FEDERALISM 
The Zhenli Ye Gon case was dismissed due to prosecutorial misconduct. (Details here.) How was the misconduct discovered? Zhenli Ye Gon was a rich drug dealer whom federal prosecutors deemed unworthy of a fair trial. And so prosecutors hid evidence. Fortunately for Ye Gon, he was able to pay lawyers to work tirelessly on his case. If Ye Gon had been poor, the hidden evidence would never have been uncovered. In the prosecution of former Senator Ted Stevens, prosecutors also withheld evidence. Stevens, fortunately, was able to pay millions to Williams & Connolly. The Duke players were able to expose the rape complaint as a hoax only after their lawyers re-reviewed thousands of pages of documents. Ye Gon, Stevens, and Duke have a common theme: With big budgets, every stone is unturned. The poor and middle class are not so lucky. III. Equal Justice Should Not Cost Seven Figures. Equal justice under the law is a constitutional requirement, not a privilege one purch  Read Full Story

Digging Up the Saudi Past: Some Would Rather Not
08-30-2009  •  NY Times 
Much of the world knows Petra, the ancient ruin in modern-day Jordan that is celebrated in poetry as ''the rose-red city, 'half as old as time,''' and which provided the climactic backdrop for ''Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.''

But far fewer know Madain Saleh, a similarly spectacular treasure built by the same civilization, the Nabateans.

That's because it's in Saudi Arabia, where conservatives are deeply hostile to pagan, Jewish and Christian sites that predate the founding of Islam in the 7th century.

Assessing What Ron Paul Has Accomplished
08-30-2009  •  by Gary North 
Central banking is today universal, excluding Andorra, Monte Carlo, and Panama.

That a Congressman who is regarded by his peers as a highly principled eccentric could get a bill to audit the Federal Reserve accepted by a substantial majority in the House of Representatives is nothing short of sensational. He was the right man at the right time.

57% Would Like to Replace Entire Congress
08-30-2009  •  Rasmussen 
If they could vote to keep or replace the entire Congress, just 25% of voters nationwide would keep the current batch of legislators. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% would vote to replace the entire Congress and start all over again. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure how they would vote. While Democrats have become more supportive of the legislators, voters not affiliated with either major party have moved in the opposite direction. Today, 70% of those not affiliated with either major party would vote to replace all of the elected politicians in the House and Senate. That’s up from 62% last year. Fifty-nine percent (59%) now believe that members of Congress are overpaid. That’s up 10 percentage points from last October. Just five percent (5%) think their Congress member is paid too little. Thirty percent (30%) think the pay is about right. One reason for this attitude may be that most voters say they understand the health care legislation bett  Read Full Story

A former firefighter, Fugate managed disasters for 20 years in Florida, the fiasco capital of America. Even more bizarrely for FEMA, often a dumping ground for friends of the powerful, Fugate has no political connections to Obama. Instead, he got his job the old-fashioned way"when Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was looking for candidates, people kept mentioning his name. He has a reputation for telling it like it is"in a field where “it” is usually bad.   Read Full Story

Joseph E. Stiglitz, the 2001 Nobel Prize winner in economics, is a professor of economics at Columbia University and former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers during the Clinton administration. The United States has resisted these changes, but they will come regardless, and it's better for us to participate in the construction of a new system than have it happen without us. The United States has seen great advantages with the dollar as the world's reserve currency of choice, particularly the ability to borrow at low interest rates seemingly without limit. But we haven't seen the costs as clearly: the inevitable trade deficits, the instability, the weaker global economy. The benefits to us are likely to shrink, and rapidly so, as countries shift their holdings away from the dollar. It is happening already, and the process is likely to accelerate. Chinese authorities, for example, have openly expressed concerns about the value of the country's vast dolla  Read Full Story

Obama Punishes Small Country for Court Ruling Refusing to Reinstate Bullying Ex-President and Would-
08-30-2009  •  Open Market 
Comment mine Birds of a Feather! The Obama Administration has decided to block travel by the people of Honduras to the United States to punish their country for its Supreme Court’s refusal to back the return to power of Honduras’s ex-president and would-be dictator, Manuel Zelaya, who is backed by left-wing Latin American dictators like Castro and Chavez. The Obama Administration is now blocking the issuance of nearly all visas, meaning that a Honduran grandma who wants to visit her grandkids in the United States can’t. Obama’s decision came in response to a recent ruling by the Honduras Supreme Court, ruling that the removal of the country’s would-be dictator was a perfectly lawful “constitutional succession,” and that he must face criminal charges for the crimes he committed as president. Obama’s action will further destabilize a country whose economy has been pushed to the brink by recent turmoil, and which is the third-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

Top 10 Signs You Might Not Be A Libertarian

Notice a propensity of newly minted Libertarians showing up lately? Perhaps it's just coincidence their ranks swelled in inverse proportion to George Bush's approval rating, ditto that so many are mouthing traditional conservative talking points. But what about the everyday gun toting townhall screamers and taxcutters and deficit hawks we see on cable news: are they really libertarian as so many claim, or just conservatives in glibertarian clothes? Here's a few warning signs.

In light of a profound understanding of how you have used and abused this trust and faith, I need you to understand how I (we) perceive you, i.e.; your activities, your betrayals of America, your pandering to corporate interests, your illegal agreements with foreign governments and interests and ultimately what appears to be a very concerted effort to destroy our country and to convert the same into a region in some coveted global plantation.
