Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are back to the headlines. This time not for Arpaio or any human rights related issue but because of an arrest that has been made. The two veteran journalists were in April arrested by the FBI and are now facing multiple counts of money laundering.

A website they previously owned was also pulled down by the government agency. Backpage.com was one of the websites they owned but sold it in 2015. Despite selling it, it seems that their activities using it have come back to haunt them. Read more: Jim Larkin | Twitter and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

When news of their arrest broke out, it was highly anticipated that they would be charged with “sex trafficking” but this did not happen. The official charge sheet released by the department of justice show that they will be facing 93 counts among them money laundering but there is no charge for sex trafficking.

Activists led by the wife of former presidential aspirant John McCain have been critics of the website operation terming it as a platform where Lacey and Larkin encourage “sell children for sex.” Cindy McCain was pleased with the swoop done on the owners and offices of backpage.com an even seemed to be aware of more details about the reason for the arrest immediately after Lacey and Larkin were arrested.

Michael and Jim have been critics of government agencies and government officials who fail to observe the rule of law. They were critics of John McCain presidential ambitions and described him as a hypocrite.

The McCain family now seem to be celebrating the arrest and according to the Front Page Confidential, there is a high chance that they have a contribution to the arrest.

Front Page Confidential is a new website that Lacey and Larkin launched in 2017 and is going to focus on the First Amendment issues. The arrest seems to be an attempt to shut them up.

According to their lawyer, it goes against the law and constitution to deny people the freedom of speech which is guaranteed by the constitution. Even as they face charges, they see the hand of an oppressive regime trying to take back the gains made in guaranteeing the people freedom of speech.

Lacey and Larkin are human rights activists who have a foundation known as Frontera Fund which deals with funding the operations of other human and immigrants’ rights organizations in Arizona. The two are particularly concerned about the treatment of the Latinos immigrants.

This group of minorities has been a target of unfair treatment by the authorities for a long time. In Maricopa County, the former Sheriff Joe Arpaio administered over the worst treatment of immigrants families in the county. Hundreds of them were tortured and even killed in concentration camps he had established to deal with illegal immigration.

While Visa and other payment processing services process payments within a fraction of seconds, Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies take time to be processed. It is going to be a problem when using the cryptocurrencies in bulk across the globe. Ted Bauman says that unless a solution is found for this issue, the future of Bitcoin and other such cryptocurrencies look bleak. Also, for long the cryptocurrencies owner did not pay any tax on their earnings from cryptocurrency. But, after the price of cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin rose by almost 1000%, IRS has started to treat cryptocurrencies as assets and would have to pay taxes on their gains or losses as applicable.
