Americans' Confidence in Television News Drops to All Time Low

Liberals' and moderates' views are now similar to conservatives'

by Lymari Morales | Gallup

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' confidence in television news is at a new low by one percentage point, with 21% of adults expressing a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in it. This marks a decline from 27% last year and from 46% when Gallup started tracking confidence in television news in 1993.

The findings are from Gallup's annual update on confidence in U.S. institutions, conducted June 7-10 this year. As such, the findings preceded the erroneous initial reports by cable-news networks CNN and Fox News regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's June 28 decision about the constitutionality of the U.S. healthcare law.

Out of Staters: Don't Inadvertently Hurt Dr. Paul! (Nebraska)

You guys ROCK! I know that and I know we all want to help Nebraska for the win!

That said they are dealing with a very fragile dynamic out there. If we show up at Grand Island hootin' and hollerin' Ron Paul, it could hurt us. Those little old ladies in Nebraska are country ladies with old fashioned values and they don't know a fiat dollar from a Fiat car. What they need to see frankly are not so much us as their own Nebraskan Republican brothers and sisters who know how to talk their talk.

The NE Liberty people have gotten this far, so we should trust they know what's needed for the win.

RON PAUL 2012!!!!!!!

Monsanto rider: New bill could make biotech companies immune to courts

If passed, an amendment in the Agricultural Appropriations Bill will not just allow, but require the secretary of agriculture to grant permits for planting or cultivating GM crops – even if a federal court has given an injunction against it.

Basically, all Monsanto and other biotech companies have to do is ask and the industry gets its way. Issues like crop contamination, damage to farmers or consumers, courts orders or USDA studies all go out the window and the biotech industry cashes in.

Organizations like Food Democracy Now are in a panic, calling all to petition against the bill, which they say “fundamentally undermines the concept of judicial review and would strip judges of their constitutional mandate to protect consumer rights and the environment, while opening up the floodgates for the planting of new untested genetically engineered crops, endangering farmers, consumers and the environment.”

Representative Peter DeFazio has been trying to push through an amendment that would kill the havoc-wreaking rider. He has the support of organizations like Organic Consumers Associations, Center for Food Safety and others. Their warnings have been circulating the web, gathering attention and support – but will they be enough to sway the House?

Nebraska Urgent Attention Needed

It looks like the RNC/GOP is sending in reinforcements to Nebraska to secure a win at the convention. They are sending in electronic voting machines to make sure we are defrauded once again

Who is here from Nebraska? We are running out of time and we need to file a restraining order to stop them from using electronic voting machines.

The convention can function just fine with paper ballots, verifiable, counting out in the open. We can not allow them to steal another state. It has worked wonders for them in the primaries as evidenced by the following:

We need to learn from the Democrats. They have been fighting with the GOP and in some cases they file restraining orders. These restraining orders act as a way to put in temporary injunctions and immediate relief before evidence is heard in a trial. In either case once we go to paper ballots we win.

The Dead Horse Theory

This may be the key to understanding the Federal Reserve -- and just about EVERYTHING the Federal Government does.

(You can zoom on the image to see the text more clearly:)
http://s1014.photobucket.com/albums/af268/idabooda/?action=v...

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to generation, says that, "When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount."

However, in modern business, education and government, a whole range of far more advanced strategies are often employed, such as:

1. Buying a stronger whip
2. Changing riders.
3. Threatening the horse with termination.

Yahoo: How Republicans plan to win over the youth vote

Two groups, the Young Guns Action Fund and Maverick PAC—the latter was co-founded by George P. Bush, nephew of former President George W. Bush and son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush—will focus on finding young Republican political talent and supporting them with money. The two organizations announced a strategic partnership Tuesday that organizers hope will increase engagement with voters that were lost to Obama in 2008. One short-term goal, of course, is to narrow the enthusiasm gap between young Republicans and Democrats, but ultimately, they're looking far beyond the next election.

Zero Hedge: Federal Reserve Admits It Knew Of Barclays Libor "Problems" In 2007 And 2008

Last Tuesday we suggested that "Now The Fed Gets Dragged Into LiEborgate" when we observed that "Barclays also cited subsequent research by the New York Federal Reserve staff members that, according to the lender, concluded that banks’ Libor quotes were systematically below their borrowing rates by 39 basis points after the Lehman bankruptcy. “Barclays own submissions for tenors of 1 month to 1 year Libor were higher than actual Barclays trades on 97% of the occasions when Barclays had actual trades during the financial crisis,” the lender said." It seems that unlike the BOE, which had no idea of any Barclays problems and was merely calling up Diamond now and then to make sure the bank's money market risk mechanisms were operational and to chit chat about the weather (as per the BOE at least), the Fed has decided to take the high road and openly admit it was well aware of Barclays' LIBOR "problems." And like that the Senatorial circus just got exciting, while that popping noise is bottles of Bollinger going off at every class action lawsuit legal firm.

From Bloomberg:

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York was aware of potential issues involving Barclays Plc and the London interbank offered rate after the financial crisis began in 2007, according to a statement from the district bank.
