From radical advisers in the Obama White House to hacked e-mails showing questionable work by climate scientists, 2009 has seen its share of scandals.

White House Green Jobs adviser Van Jones resigned from his post in September after weeks of pressure over his radical past. A former self-avowed Marxist and anarchist, Jones signed a 2004 petition that suggested the U.S. government was involved in the Sept 11. terrorist attacks.

Our negligent partisan media is a bigger threat to our liberties than any Jihadist.
Why are all of Obama's travel, education, and birth records sealed, being defended by a Martyr's Brigade of private and government lawyers, and why did Nancy Pelosi and the DNC in every state commit fraud and possibly perjury to keep them all invisible?
The MSMwhores didn’t “misss” these stories. They ignored them. There’s a difference.
well, they did mention the tea party protests, but mostly as a tax day event. What about 9-12? Only the largest march ever on Washington DC...
Well, the MSM may have missed them, but Free Republic didn’t!
