Rise of the Warrior Cop, pre-order in paperback now available

riseofthewarriorcopA must read for any limited government, liberty minded individual.

Amazon: In Rise of the Warrior Cop, Balko shows how politicians’ ill-considered policies and relentless declarations of war against vague enemies like crime, drugs, and terror have blurred the distinction between cop and soldier. His fascinating, frightening narrative shows how over a generation, a creeping battlefield mentality has isolated and alienated American police officers and put them on a collision course with the American public and the Constitution.

Praised by Anthony Romero, ExDir, ACLU; Arianna Huffington, Huffington Post; Ron Paul, former Texas congressman and Republican presidential candidate; and Glenn Greewald, constitutional lawyer, and columnist.

You really should order this NOW!  And follow Radley at The Washington Post.

Daniela Cambone over at Kitco News explains:

He is aiming to get to the bottom of this during a scheduled April 7 hearing of his U.S. House Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy to examine the bullion programs at the U.S. Mint.

“We are going to try and find out what the Mint has done so they can give us a better answer as to why there is a shortage. Why can’t they keep the supply of coins up?” said the congressman in an exclusive interview with Kitco News.

Demand for precious metals in the futures markets and in physical gold bullion coins increases as the dollar weakens, which often leads to coin shortages.

Part of the problem lies in manufacturing the blanks, said Paul. The blank planchets are not made at the Mint, which hasn’t had the production capacity for this stage of the minting process since the budget cuts of 1981.
