Include Gary Johnson in national Presidential polls
The Commission on Presidential Debates determines whether or not a candidate can be included in the debates based on their performance in five selected national polls. In order to be included in the debates, a candidate must be polling at 15% nationwide. We, the undersigned, believe that Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee for President has a chance to reach that threshold. A recent Fox News poll found Gov. Johnson to have 12% support nationwide and his mainstream media exposure in recent weeks has been unprecedented for a Libertarian Presidential candidate, which means that his support has likely grown. Paired with the fact that polls have consistently shown Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to be among the most polarizing candidates in history, we believe that there is a real opportunity this year for a third-party candidate to make a difference. With the Libertarian Party being the only third party likely to appear on the ballot in all fifty states and the political experience of both Gov. Johnson and his running mate, Governor William Weld, we believe that they are the most likely to capitalize on this opportunity. We urge you to include Governor Johnson in your national polling and help give the American voter another option this November.

Agba Jalingo: The Need To Investigate And Redeploy CP, Austin Agbonlahor Immediately.
Deteriorating Health Condition Of Mr. Agba Jalingo And The Need To Redeploy CP, Austin Agbonlahor. The Association of Cross River Online Journalists – ACROJ, notes with dismay the continuous unlawful detention of the Publisher of CrossRiverWatch, Mr. Agba Jalingo for about eight (8) days now and counting. As the world marks the International Day for the Disappeared, we want to draw the attention of all Nigerians and indeed the whole world to the increasing hostility towards journalists and critics of Government in Cross River State. Today, Journalists and critics of Government have become endangered. Cross River State has taken a huge leap backwards in terms of the protection of journalists. The flagrant disregard to the constitution and rights of Nigerians by the Nigerian Police, especially, the Cross River State command which is supposed to protect and uphold the integrity of our constitution and the right of journalists; but, have rather taken the opposite seat posses a great concern which must not be overlooked. The Cross River State Commissioner of Police has continued to disregard the constitution via the unlawful continuous detention of Mr. Jalingo. We are concerned about the deteriorating health condition of Mr. Agba Jalingo. His hands and legs are swollen most likely due to handcuffs and restraints as well as his loss of appetite. Access to him has been largely controlled, while the few who have seen him have expressed concern for the need for him to have immediate access to health care. We call on the Inspector General of Police – IGP to urgently redeploy the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Austin Agbonlahor from the State and immediately set up a panel of inquiry to investigate the several complains of human rights abuse under his watch. We therefore once again call for immediate and unconditional release of Mr. Agba Jalingo. The world is watching. Sign: Edem Darlington,Chairman, Association of Cross River Online Journalists (ACROJ).
Space Frontier / Pew Research: Ask the Right Questions, Change the Future
Some of our most successful entrepreneurs in a generation are dreaming about a big future in space. Elon Musk (SpaceX) talks about putting a million people on Mars. Jeff Bezos, of Amazon, has his own rocket company, Blue Origin, and predicts a future where millions of people will work and live in space. Both are investing billions in building rockets to make it happen and a new era of low cost access to space appears to be dawning. But there is no public vision to match the scale of these private sector aspirations. At most, there are plans to return a few astronauts to the Moon or send a few more on to Mars. One reason there is no bold public vision for space is because no politician or policymaker currently believes the public will support it. And that’s because for two generations pollsters have been asking a variation on the same questions: Will the public support more funding for space exploration? Does space exploration rate higher than other funding priorities? The responses have always been lukewarm and so no significant funding has been forthcoming. Earthly priorities have always trumped space exploration. But what if the conventional wisdom is wrong? What if we have been asking the wrong questions? By signing this petition, you are asking Pew Research, one of the nation’s most prominent non-profit, non-partisan public research and polling organizations to test if Americans are supportive of making a significant investment in public funds to develop a space frontier IF those funds would be paid back and millions of high paying jobs for Americans would be created as a result. Background: In the process of writing a book (The New Frontier Playbook), I tested six questions on Survey Monkey that challenge the conventional wisdom. The questions were not about traditional space exploration (sending a few astronauts into space). They explored the public’s willingness to invest very large sums to develop an economically sustainable presence in space IF those public funds would eventually get paid back and high paying jobs could be created in the process. You can see the original survey analysis at Appendix A: Space Frontier and Politics Survey and you can see the questions and data at Appendix B: Top-line Survey Questions. My questions tested public support with specific numbers that dramatically increased NASA’s current budget. All were premised on the potential for a return on investment in public funds. Support ranged from the mid-40s to the lower 70s, far higher numbers than what has traditionally been seen for space exploration. The support was also broadly similar across Republican, Democrat, and Independent respondents, making this a potential area of political common ground (a welcome development these days). If Pew Research tests public opinion with similar questions and it turns out that the American public is more willing to support a bolder future in space than the current conventional wisdom suggests, you will have opened the door to a very different future than the current headlines suggest – one that is potentially more prosperous, has higher paying jobs, and creates a faster growing economy with more opportunity for all. That’s why your support for this petition is so important. Thank you in advance for your consideration and support!
