That is CNN's beloved LIBERAL reporter Anderson Cooper with a six-egg omelet on his face after it was revealed that Democrat insiders were either able or allowed to infiltrate the Republican debate televised on CNN last night.
Retired Brigadier General Keith Kerr used the YouTube format to challenge Republican Presidential candidates on their stance on gays in the military. Kerr has been a long time advocate against the "don't ask, don't tell" policy currently held by the Armed Forces, which incidentally, was instituted under the Bill Clinton administration. The retired reservist officer feels that gays should be permitted to openly serve in the military. No mention was made of the fact that Kerr is a member of a gay, lesbian and transgender steering committee for Hillary Clinton!
And it turns out Kerr wasn't the only Democrat supporter whose question was chosen by CNN for the televised debate. Ted Faturos, a student at University of California, San Diego, asked a question about corn subsidies. What wasn't revealed by CNN or Faturos, is that he worked as an intern for Democrat Rep. Jane Harman.
One woman, who identified herself as "Journey from Texas" asked candidates about whether they would prosecute women and doctors if abortion were made illegal and the practice continued. Problem is, "Journey" is an active John Edwards supporter! Shortly after the debate, she posted a web video on YouTube.com under username "PAPERSERENADE" wearing a John Edwards t-shirt explaining that she was disappointed with the answers to her question. There's a SHOCKER!! She's a liberal asking the opinion of Republicans... what did she expect?
This debacle begs one to question whether CNN or the Clinton campaign planted these questions in a collaborative effort. Honestly, I see this as CNN (Communist News Network) showing its true colors. They tout themselves as "America's #1 name in news." In all actuality, CNN is nothing more than America's #1 name in biased propaganda! And naturally, the Clinton campaign denies any involvement in this incident. Just as they deny any involvement in the massive amount of illegal campaign contributions they've received and the planted questions at Hillary's stump speeches, they proclaim their hands are clean once again. If nothing else, I must admit that Hillary is a master of denial.
Imagine the backlash if FoxNews allowed Fred Thompson's campaign advisor to ask Mssss. Clinton if she could provide receipts for the multi-thousand dollar campaign contributions she's received from shady donors in some of the poorest neighborhoods in New York! Good Lord, the Democrats would wet themselves in anger! All of this serves to further prove my point, and I make it often, that Democrats will stop at nothing to bring themselves unto power. As for CNN's part in all of this... well hell, charging CNN with fair reporting is like ordering the fox to watch the hen house.

You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You've never protested the public display of the 10 Commandments.
You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You still say, "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays."
You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You stand at attention and place your hand over your heart during the National Anthem.
You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You treat America's veterans with great respect.
You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You respect your elders and expect your children to do the same.
You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You're keenly aware how truly fortunate you are to be a citizen of this great country.
You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You believe the United States is the answer to tyranny and oppression, not the cause of it.
You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You stand by the Constitution as it is written, not by how you think it should have been intended.
You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You would never hide behind the Bill of Rights as an excuse to burn the American Flag or otherwise defile this great nation.
You're a TRUE AMERICAN if: You don't deny that English, is in fact, the official language of the United States of America.
If more than half of the above do not apply to you, then you're NOT a TRUE AMERICAN and you should get the hell out!! You're not wanted. The People's Republic of China would probably be happy to have you on board.

American Atheists Inc. has filed a federal lawsuit, arguing that the 13 white crosses violate the First Amendment, which prohibits government establishment of religion. The key word here is "government." See, the thing is, these 13 memorial crosses were not erected by "the government." They were paid for entirely by private funds donated by co-workers and family members of fallen Utah State Troopers.
The First Amendment states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." So it would appear to me that American Atheists Inc. has a very weak case here when one considers that the mere presence of privately constructed crosses on a state highway has absolutely NOTHING to do with government establishing a religion. In fact, if government did NOT permit the presence of these memorials, it would seem to me that in fact it were acting to prohibit "the free exercise thereof."
American Atheists will likely lose this case, but what is most bothersome is that this small group of leftist heathens is abusing the Bill of Rights, particularly the First Amendment, to denigrate the memories of fallen law enforcement officers and their families and further their secularist agenda.
The First Amendment was written by our Founding Fathers to protect the people from tyranny in government, not to protect people from being offended!! All too often, liberals cite the First Amendment as some sort of "catch-all" in the Bill of Rights when they find something objectionable. If the incredibly small minority of atheists in this country find crosses, memorials or other religious symbols offensive, then perhaps they should just look the other damn way! I'm offended on a daily basis by things people do and say, but I don't run off to the courthouse to file a lawsuit. Why? Because I'm a damn adult and even if I don't agree with something I see or hear, I respect that person's right to be different than me. I am sick and tired of the cry-baby lawsuits taking place in this country because certain groups or individuals had their feelings hurt. Frankly, if you can't handle the simple task of learning to live with being offended every now and then, your life is going to be one long, sad, pathetic existence!

I do not oppose environmentalism. I do not oppose the political positions of either party. However, global warming, ie climate change, is not about environmentalism or politics. It is not a religion. It is not something you 'believe in.' It is science; the science of meteorology. This is my field of life-long expertise. And I am telling you global warming is a non-event, a manufactured crisis and a total scam.
I say this knowing you probably won't believe a me, a mere TV weatherman, challenging a Nobel Prize, Academy Award and Emmy Award winning former Vice President of United States. So be it... There is no run away climate change. The impact of humans on climate is not catastrophic. Our planet is not in peril... In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious. As the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have been duped. The sky is not falling."
--John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel and renowned meteorologist for over fifty years.

We have never had an ex-president move back into the White House. When in 1992 Bill Clinton promised 'two for the price of one,' it was taken as a slightly hyperbolic promotion of the role of first lady. This time we would literally be getting two presidents. Any ex-president is a presence in his own right. His stature, unlike, say, Hillary's during Bill's presidency, is independent of his spouse. From Day One of Hillary's inauguration, Bill will have had more experience than she at everything she touches. His influence on her presidency would necessarily be immeasurably greater than that of any father on any son.
Americans did not like the idea of a co-presidency when, at the 1980 Republican convention, Ronald Reagan briefly considered sharing the office with former president Gerald Ford. (Ford would have been vice president with independent powers.) And they won't like this co-presidency, particularly because the Clinton partnership involves two characters caught in the dynamic of a strained, strange marriage. The cloud hovering over a Hillary presidency is not Bill padding around the White House in robe and slippers flipping thongs. It's President Clinton, in suit and tie, simply present in the White House when any decision is made. The degree of his involvement in that decision will inevitably become an issue.
Do Americans really want a historically unique two-headed presidency constantly buffeted by the dynamics of a highly dysfunctional marriage?"
-- Charles Krauthammer
"We're gathered today, just as we have gathered before, to remember those who served, those who fought, those still missing, and those who gave their last full measure of devotion for our country... One of those who fell wrote, shortly before his death, these words: 'Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own. And take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.' Well, today, Veterans Day, as we do every year, we take that moment to embrace the gentle heroes of Vietnam and of all our wars. We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause... Our liberties, our values, all for which America stands is safe today because brave men and women have been ready to face the fire at freedom's front. And we thank God for them."

2. Higher taxes! M$$$$$. Clinton's new spending proposals will cost $773 BILLION and climbing. She can't pay for her programs without forcing crippling tax hikes on the American people.
3. Surrender of your personal freedom and liberties. For the past year, democrat leaders and Presidential candidates have been telling Americans that we're too stupid to take care of ourselves and we should surrender our lives to their control. Think about it. Democrats want to bail out folks who foolishly bought more home than they could afford or entered into high risk loans. The liberal food police think we're too fat, so they're going to control what and when we eat. Criminals use firearms to commit crime, so they want to try to abolish the 2nd Amendment so that NOBODY can own a gun. Higher taxes to pay for social programs to help those who refuse to play by the rules and earn an honest living.
4. Terrorists are people too and America must be gentle and respect their feelings. While Al Qaeda slices people's heads off with machetes, we must ensure that captured enemy fighters have the same, if not more legal rights than American citizens. They are entitled to legal representation and foot washing stations in captivity. Waterboarding a high value prisoner to get vital information that might prevent a mass casualty attack?? GOD NO! That's just mean!
5. Open borders. Liberals shudder at the idea of actually stopping millions of Mexicans from flooding across our border every year. Illegals make great puppets for liberals! In exchange for driver's licences, college tuition discounts and free medical care; illegals will support the democrat party, even if it's done illegally.
6. Further loss of religious freedom. The attacks on Christianity are getting worse and worse every day. Bleeding heart, liberal bureaucrats find crosses and crucifixes offensive. To them, God is bad and evil is perfectly acceptable so long as we appease it. Christmas lights and nativity scenes on your own home? Forget about it! For example, Ft. Collins, CO. has developed a "holiday decoration task force." Their goal... to make sure Christmas and Hanukkah DIE and give way to a more secular celebration. The 2% of atheist heathens in this country are actually given preferential treatment to the 80% of REAL Americans who love and worship God and believe that this nation was founded on the teachings of Jesus Christ.
7. American citizens serve the government, not the other way around. I cringe at what I've heard Mssss. Clinton utter so many times... "for the common good." Right. That's what Adolf Hitler, Nikita Kruschev and Joseph Stalin told their people when they took power. The people surrendered their freedoms "for the common good" and ended up with tyrannical dictatorships. No, Hillary is not Hitler reincarnated. But when the people surrender personal freedom and responsibility "for the common good", it is almost never returned.
Democrats have an insatiable thirst for pushing America further and further to the left, to the point where democracy will give way to socialism. Our Founding Fathers warned of this! Democrats preach that America is bad and the rest of the world, even the dictatorships (Cuba and Venezuela for examples) have it right. They say that it's patriotic to bash the Commander in Chief during a time of war. They say it's patriotic to offer more protection to the enemy than our own warriors who fight for our very lives. The libs have it all wrong! Senator Joe Lieberman had it right when he bashed his former party for abandoning the values it used to hold. He asked what happened to the party of John F. Kennedy who said, "Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty." If America is so bad, what will Msssss. Clinton do to make it better? The thought frightens me!

In fiscal 2007, which ended last month, the government took in 6.7% more tax revenues than in 2006. These increases in tax revenue have substantially reduced the federal-budget deficits. In 2004 the deficit was $413 billion, or 3.5% of gross domestic product. It narrowed to $318 billion in 2005, $248 billion in 2006 and $163 billion in 2007. That last figure is just 1.2% of GDP, which is half of the average of the past 50 years. Lower tax rates have been so successful in spurring growth that the percentage of federal income taxes paid by the very wealthy has increased... Finally, another inconvenient truth is that there have been 49 consecutive months of job growth as a result of the economic expansion induced by President Bush's 2003 tax rate reductions."
