"Left-wing former CBS News Anchor, Walter Cronkite, Endorses Campaign to Force Christianity Out of American Public Life
According to LifeSiteNews.com earlier this week, the left-wing former anchor of CBS News, Walter Cronkite -- who is the honorary chairman of a group called Interfaith Alliance -- has endorsed a campaign called "First Amendment First" which is dedicated to forcing Christianity out of the U.S. public life.¬
Last week in San Jose, California, the new campaign to force Christianity out of the public square was launched with the full support of Walter Cronkite who served as CBS anchor from 1962 to 1981.¬ The news source reports that "in addition to opposing religious influence in politics, the Interfaith Alliance is dedicated to promoting public acceptance of homosexuality, calling for an end to 'discrimination based on sexual orientation.'"¬
According to LifeSiteNews.com, "the Interfaith Alliance, an organization dedicated to countering the influence of the conservative Christian Coalition on federal politics, the new campaign is designed to promote policies that would silence the political voice of the 'religious right.'" "
"House and Senate Democrats Are Extremely Divided Over President Bush's Successful "Surge" Strategy for Iraq/President's New Policy Has Drastically Cut Violence in Iraq/Displaced Families Returning to Homes in Iraq
Democrats in the House and Senate are deeply divided regarding whether or not to support legislation withdrawing support for the American troops fighting in Iraq.¬ On the other hand, the American people overwhelmingly support the troops in Iraq and want them funded to whatever extent they require.¬ The "U.S. News Political Bulletin" reported yesterday that "Democrats may have given up in their effort to derail President Bush's 'surge' strategy for Iraq.¬ 'The Wall Street Journal' reports, 'Plagued by internal divisions, House Democrats have largely abandoned efforts to cap the increase in U.S. troop levels for Iraq and will focus instead on highlighting the war's strain on the military and competing interests in Afghanistan.'¬ As a result, President Bush 'will have a relatively free hand to add the more than 21,500 soldiers and Marines he wants by the end of May.'"¬
Indeed, President Bush's "surge" policy has been highly successful so far and it is anticipated most of the Democrat presidential candidates will be severely wounded if the war goes in President Bush's favor during this year.¬ Former Reagan Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force Jack Kelly, a former Marine and Green Beret, said in a column this week quoting an Associated Press report, "...Since the crackdown was formally launched February 14, a total of 164 bodies have been found in the capital as of Monday...the AP count showed that 390 bodies were discovered in the same period in January....'The best part remains the return of displaced families to their homes, wrote the Iraqi Web logger Mohammed Fadhil, a Sunni.¬ 'More than 600 families have returned so far.'"¬ ¬The "Old Media" is refusing to document the success of the Bush surge.
Reagan Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force Jack Kelly says: Democrats have invested so much political capital in an American defeat that their electoral prospects in 2008 could be devasted if we win." American soldiers and Marines serving in Iraq are overwhelmingly optimistic about America's chances to win the war. "
