The staff at the Center for American Freedom and the Washington Free Beacon want to thank all of our visitors and readers as we celebrate our first year in operation. No question, 2012 brought with it highs (our debut) and lows (the reelection of a certain president who shall remain nameless). But the forces of combat journalism will soldier on, breaking stories that otherwise would be ignored.
Thanks also to the Democrats, media, and members of the professional left without whose unwilling assistance we would be unable to run the website: Dani Gilbert, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Joe Williams, Brett McGurk, Susan Rice, Chuck Hagel, Katherine Fenton, Joe Biden, Lee Fang, Stephanie Cutter, Sheila Jackson-Lee, the Podesta family, Jen Psaki, Bob Menendez, Ron Klein, the Democracy Alliance, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steve Spinner, George Soros, Marc Lasry, the officers of the Exelon Corporation, Tamron Hall, Antonio Villaraigosa, and the hackers and missile engineers of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
