A New Deal on Energy; liberals who care about their fellow man should rethink U.S. energy policy. "The wealthy, particularly those who are politically liberal, also like that high-priced gas translates into less burning of fossil fuels by others and helps accelerate research into alternative energies. What these elites don’t seem to realize is that the energy policies they tend to advocate are for the present paralyzing almost everyone else in the country — and that the truly ethical and environmental solution would require embracing positions long considered anathema to traditional liberalism." [12]

Weather Channel founder John Coleman's statement to the San Diego Chamber of Commerce had this to say about global warming: "Well, it is simply not happening. Worldwide there was a significant natural warming trend in the 1980’s and 1990’s as a Solar cycle peaked with lots of sunspots and solar flares. That ended in 1998 and now the Sun has gone quiet with fewer and fewer Sun spots, and the global temperatures have gone into decline. Earth has cooled for almost ten straight years. So, I ask Al Gore, where’s the global warming?" Yes, just where is it, Al? [13]

Countering Democrats on Drilling [19]

Is Hillary Clinton quietly remaining in contention for the Democratic nomination? She refuses to release her delegates, and one of her senior delegates just insisted that Hillary's name be put to the convention for a vote: "if the Democratic Party 'does not allow (Clinton's) name to be put in nomination at the convention' there 'will be an eruption in the party.'"

Unfairness Doctrine [23]
Replacing the marketplace of ideas with a board of overseers doesn't do anything to rid the world of bias. It only empowers the liberal bias of the overseers.

A Story of Oil and a "Do Nothing" Congress [25]

Democrats Try to Make Military Press Conferences Illegal [31]
The real reason the Democrats want such a policy in place is to silence the military entirely.

Liberal Democrats Block Drill Plan [32]

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin isn't just a pro-life politician. She recently proved she's pro-life by personal example.

Media Ignore Impending Collision: Gay Rights vs. Religious Liberty [36]

The goals are to win social acceptance of alternative sexual “lifestyles,” especially homosexuality, and to make room for a revolutionary new sexual code that glorifies self-indulgence and embraces promiscuity."

Keith Ellison (D-Mn.), Senator Byron Dorgan, members of the FCC, Bill Moyers, Phil Donahue, Arianna Huffington, and Dan Rather. The liberals are hoping for the return of the Fairness Doctrine or other measures to limit and control conservative speech.
