ON THE STUMP: Lamborn Endorsed by Family Research Council

BY Pam Zubeck

Rep. Doug Lamborn has been endorsed in his re-election bid by the Family Research Council Action, the legislative advocacy arm of the Family Research Council. The group's goal is to preserve and advance family, faith and freedom, and said in a release that "Lamborn is a proven friend of the family," demonstrated by his pro-life position. The Family Research Council formerly was associated with Focus on the Family, a Christian ministry based in Colorado Springs. NOW SHOWING Typical videos on YouTube.com show dogs on skates and foaming-at-the-mouth tirades.

Is Countrywide the next Fed bailout?

BY

Mortgage lending giant Countrywide Financial is in serious trouble-- its credit rating was cut to junk on Friday and there are new signs that Bank of America may walk away from its acquisition deal. (ht Calculated Risk) The problem for taxpayers is that Countrywide has direct access to the Federal Reserve's balance sheet through the Fed's lending windows. If Bank of America walks away from this deal and Countrywide folds, look for a multi-billion dollar hit on the U.S. Treasury. Alternatively, and perhaps more troubling, would be another JP Morgan Chase-Bear Stearns style intervention where the Fed guarantees some of Countrywide's garbage assets in order to make the Bank of America deal happen.That scenario would avoid the immediate Treasury cost but would expand the Fed's new role as private dealmaker. The moral hazard introduced by the Bear Stearns bailout is clearly present here...

The Games Continue in Harrisburg, and Something Must Be Done

Last weekend FreedomWorks staff attended the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference in Harrisburg. We had a great time and we were able to meet a lot of energetic conservatives who were looking to find a way to make a difference in the commonwealth. Luckily, they found us and we found them. We are stronger as a result of our new members and the enthusiasm that they bring to bear for FreedomWorks Pennsylvania. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the politicians are continuing their silly games in Harrisburg.

More Energy, Not More Restrictions

Senate Republicans introduced a proposal to go forward with a number of energy reforms that should've been instituted long ago, but, with energy prices on the rise, are especially pressing now. Here are a couple of things the bill would do, as listed in the Reuters report:

Angry Fed-ers

What do former senior Fed officials think of the Bear Stearns bailout? At least one is convinced it was a bad move indeed. From the WSJ:

FreedomWorks Fights for Free Speech in Oregon

People here in Oregon may not always agree on what gets said, but we do agree in our right to say it. Basic, first amendment rights are one thing that Oregon used to do right. Unlike many states, we have a dynamic and robust citizen initiative process. Working within a few commonsense parameters, some of the law-making (and law-repealing!) is left in the hands of voters.

FreedomWorks North Carolina Fighting Taxes and HillaryCare!

FreedomWorks North Carolina has been busy moving our ideas forward in a variety of ways the last few weeks. Before I update you on our progress, I want to take the time to remind you to vote next Tuesday. Exercising our right and privilege to vote is one of the most important ways to move our ideas into the realm of public policy. Early voting is already underway, and there are a couple of important issues facing voters. The following counties face a land transfer tax on the ballot: Ashe, Gates, Orange and Tyrell. There is a sales tax increase on the ballot in these counties: Cumberland, Duplin, Edgecombe, Gaston, Greene, Henderson, Hertford, Lee, Lincoln, Moore, Nash, Onslow, Randolph, Rockingham, Stanly, Wayne, Wilkes and Wilson.

Credit Where It's Due?

Looks like the Dodd credit card bill is poised to move its way through the hallowed halls of Congress. Given the topsy-turvy mortgage market, anything remotely related to the credit industry is bound to make a pretty fat target for legislators looking to prove their consumer-friendly bona fides through legislation. Not that the two are directly linked to each other in any significant way… but who can tell one credit market from another?
