Taibbi closes in on Obama

Taibbi closes in on Obama By Ronald Bleier 15 Jul 2011 In a recent blog, Rolling Stone contributing editor, Matt Taibbi, comes very close in his last paragraph to supporting the headline to his article: "Obama Doesn't Want a Progressive Deficit Deal." Taibbi calls out the Democrats for a "transparent lie" when they claim to support a progressive solution to the current economic situation. I agree: Obama has been maneuvering much more openly, quite blatantly in fact, since at least December 2010, driving not merely a rightwing agenda, but an extremist right wing agenda, a Tea Party agenda.

Beef Contamination Spreads in Japan as Fukushima Radiation Taints Straw 15 Jul 2011 More beef from cattle in Japan that ate straw tainted by radiation has found its way into the food supply, deepening concern about the safety of meat as the country struggles to contain the spread of the contamination. Cattle at the farm in Asakawa, about 60 kilometers from the crippled Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear station, were fed with rice straw containing 97,000 becquerels of cesium per kilogram, compared with the government standard of 300 becquerels, said Hidenori Ohtani at the livestock division of the Fukushima prefectural government. The farm shipped 42 cattle in the past three months to slaughterhouses in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba and Miyagi prefectures, which were processed into meat and sold to distributors, he said.

United States recognizes Libya 'rebels' 15 Jul 2011 Rebel leaders won recognition as the legitimate government of Libya from the United States and other world powers on Friday in a major boost to the 'rebels' faltering campaign to oust Muammar Gaddafi.

New backup plan would let Obama raise debt ceiling without congressional OK 15 Jul 2011 A plan by the Senate's two top leaders to allow President Obama to raise the debt limit without congressional approval is emerging as the most likely strategy to avoid a looming federal default.

July 15, 2011 by legitgov

S&P warns of 1-in-2 chance of U.S. sovereign-ratings downgrade 14 Jul 2011 Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said late Thursday it has placed U.S. sovereign credit ratings on watch for possible downgrade, saying the action "signals our view that, owing to the dynamics of the political debate on the debt ceiling, there is at least a one-in-two likelihood that we could lower the long-term rating on the U.S. within the next 90 days." S&P had already lowered its outlook on the U.S. AAA long-term rating to negative in April, but since then "the political debate about the U.S.' fiscal stance and the related issue of the U.S. government debt ceiling has, in our view, only become more entangled," it said
