A change, which is rolling out airline-by-airline but which officially begins to phase in this weekend on Aug. 15, will require that you hand over to the federal government more personal data than ever before in order to reserve a seat on a domestic flight.

Sen. Reid: Protesters are 'evil-mongers'
08-13-2009  •  The Hill 

Town hall protesters are "evil-mongers," says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

Reid coined the term in a speech to an energy conference in Las Vegas this week and repeated it in an interview with Politics Daily.

Such "evil-mongers" are using "lies, innuendo and rumor," to drown out rational debate, Reid said.

Washington Post reporter coordinated attorney firing story with White House
08-13-2009  •  Rawstory 

When a scandal involving the Bush administration’s firing of US Attorneys broke in early 2007, initial coverage by the Washington Post supported the idea that the firings had been politically motivated. That approach, however, quickly changed to one that was far more friendly to the White House.

The House Judiciary Committee has now released over 5400 pages of Bush administration and Republican Party emails related to the firings. Several of these emails suggest coordination between Post reporter John Solomon and Bush administration officials on how to manage the Post’s coverage of the widening scandal.

School Disciplines Student Over MySpace Profanity
08-13-2009  •  MSNBC 

Wessel said administrators first told her she was disciplined because of provocative photos she had posted of herself in a bathing suit, but that they later claimed it was because of offensive language.

She said a friend had written a single bad word in a posting on her page.

"Pretty much everybody has a MySpace or a Facebook," she said.

Her MySpace account is private, she said, and only accessible by about 400 friends she has approved.

"If you're not my friend, you can't see it," she said.

Businesses reduced inventories for a 10th straight month in June, although total business sales posted the first increase in nearly a year.   The Commerce Department said Thursday that businesses cut stockpiles 1.1 percent in June, slightly larger than the 0.9 percent drop economists expected. The reductions have translated into sharp production cutbacks at factories, adding to the steep recession.  Read Full Story

Consumers continued to curtail their spending last month as rising gasoline prices dampened purchases of other goods, a fresh indication of a cooling economy.

The cutback unexpectedly pushed retail sales into negative territory in June, when they dipped 0.1 percent after edging up by the same amount in May, the Commerce Department reported Friday.

Excluding gasoline sales, June retail sales fell 0.2 percent.

Mark Tapscott: Three big stories the media's 'homers' missed
08/13/2009  •  The Examiner 
Sports writers who never have a harsh word for the local team are called "homers," but one doesn't have to look far in the news sections or broadcasts of the mainstream media to realize that this problem starts on the front page. Take, for example, these three significant stories that got little or no play in The Washington Post, The New York Times or the network news outlets. First, remember that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) "report" warning of the danger of domestic terrorist attacks by right-wing extremists? With only a few exceptions, major mainstream media outlets uncritically repeated the report's assertions, which were allegedly based on credible intelligence from official sources. It was left to a conservative non-profit, Americans for Limited Government (ALG), to file a Freedom of Information Act request for the documentation used by DHS to prepare the report. And guess what ALG found? Instead of intelligence reports, DHS used unverified  Read Full Story

Banks’ Toxic Assets Still There: The Accounting Cannot Be Trusted
08/13/2009  •  Investment Watch 
The Congressional oversight panel (COP) of the TARP program is just out with its August report (http://cop.senate.gov/documents/cop-081109-report.pdf). In it, it warns: “Treasury‘s choice to pursue direct capital purchases resulted in a notable stabilization of the financial system, and it allowed the write-down of billions of dollars of troubled assets and reserve building. But, it is likely that an overwhelming portion of the troubled assets from last October remain on bank balance sheets today. “If the troubled assets held by banks prove to be worth less than their balance sheets currently indicate, the banks may be required to raise more capital. If the losses are severe enough, some financial institutions may be forced to cease operations. This means that the future performance of the economy and the performance of the underlying loans, as well as the method of valuation of the assets, are critical to the continued operation of the banks. “For many years, banks were requi  Read Full Story

Codex Alimentarius is scheduled for full global implementation on December 31, 2009, and not a word has been spoken in main stream media about this threat to humanity. Yet, according to the projections based on figures from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), a minimum of 3 billion people will die from the Codex mandated vitamin and mineral guideline alone.
