Iowa cops seize $50,000 from couple without charging them with a crime

THE INSTITUTE FOR JUSTICE - IJ.com

A Minnesota couple is suing the Iowa City Police Department to return almost $50,000, arguing police wrongfully seized that cash. Kearnice Overton was driving with his four kids on I-80 when Iowa City police pulled him over for speeding. Police brought a K-9 unit and based on the dog giving a “silent indicator on the vehicle,” police searched Overton’s car. They found $48,000.

Drug sniffing dogs can have a very high false positive rate, i.e., they alert even when there are no drugs. Yet as the Institute for Justice demonstrated in an amicus brief for the U.S. Supreme Court, “There are countless examples of police seizing large sums of cash based on nothing more than a positive dog alert.” Plus, in Iowa, law enforcement can keep 100 percent of the proceeds from forfeited property, creating an immense incentive to police for profit.

Residents to Michigan City Police: Give the free MRAP back to the Feds. We don't want it in our town.

MICHIGAN CITY | More than 700 signatures have been gathered on an online petition that demands Michigan City give back a bullet- and bomb-proof military vehicle supplied to the police department at no cost by the U.S. military.

Ray Wolff, of LaPorte, started the petition drive believing that the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle represents too much of a military presence in grassroots law enforcement.

A 100% Constitutional U.S. Senator? My Interview With Derrick Grayson aka TMOT!

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in Republican Candidate for Senate in Georgia, Derrick Grayson, better known as TMOT aka The Minister of Truth to many in the libertarian community for his entertaining YouTube videos. Mr. Grayson describes how he first began making his “Drive Time with TMOT” videos on YouTube and how he came up with the TMOT moniker. Derrick explains how he first became a passionate advocate of the ideas of liberty through Ron Paul’s Presidential campaigns, and what inspired him to carry the torch of liberty himself and run for the United States Senate. Derrick and I discuss the philosophy behind his campaign, before he takes some questions from some Daily Paul readers.

Finally: Dirty Harry's Dirty Laundry Gets Aired Out!

Harry Reid's Long, Steady Accretion of Power & Wealth

The first of two parts

Last month, as the Senate was busy negotiating the final details of its Ukraine aid package, Majority Leader Harry Reid became temporarily distracted with a campaign finance issue. Since winning re-election in 2010, Reid’s campaign had purchased gifts for supporters and donors from vendors like Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon, Nordstrom, and the Senate gift shop, among others. But one round of spending was directed to a less recognizable firm: Ryan Elisabeth, a jewelry line.

MarketWatch: A Currency War is Coming

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/a-currency-war-is-coming-20...

We’re on the cusp of an outright currency war — something that the Brazilians first warned about in 2010 — as central banks in all the major economies actively work to weaken their currencies to boost exports, their economies, and keep pushing inflation higher.

While headlines remain focused on the simmering conflict in Ukraine, the real battle is about to break out in the foreign-exchange market as countries battle, not for supremacy, but in a race to the bottom.

Bundy Ranch: The Agenda 21 "Shot" Heard 'Round The World

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

The United States government is NOT concerned about the desert tortoise. There is something much larger at stake...a much bigger reason to lead an armed insurrection against a family's property as we've seen at the Bundy Ranch. What's for sure is the Bundy Ranch showdown is not over. Harry Reid assures us something big will happen:
