November 30, 2009 Dear Friend of Liberty, You may have seen recent headlines that ask whether climate scientists have been open and honest regarding global warming data.

October 12, 2009 Dear Friend of Liberty, I am disappointed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Barack Obama. That prize should go to individuals who end wars and make peace, not those who make war. President Obama has utterly failed to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has increased American […]
