POST-KATRINA CRIME: WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2005 07:39 AM

Remember all those rapes and murders that supposedly took place in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina? By and large, according to a new report, they didn’t happen.

CLEANING UP LOUISIANA

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2005 06:50 AM

John Fund reports on the swamp of corruption in Louisiana. An excerpt: Last year, Lou Riegel, the agent in charge of the FBI’s New Orleans office, described Louisiana’s public corruption as “epidemic, endemic, and entrenched. No branch of government is exempt.” Louisiana ranks third in the nation in the number of elected officials per capita […]

BILL MAHER SLIMES THE BUSHES

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 25, 2005 11:34 AM

You’ve no doubt heard or read of the scurrilous tabloid allegations being made by anonymous attackers about President Bush. Unhinged Bush haters are gleefully embracing the National Enquirer story and trashing the president. That is to be expected. It comes with the territory. But what Bill Maher did to exploit the smear story on Friday […]

A DAY AMONG THE MOONBATS

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2005 05:10 PM

I spent the afternoon at Sheehanapalooza in D.C. under overcast skies, in a haze of hemp-scented paranoia, steeped with fetid Bush hatred. Am uploading a bunch of photos of moonbats in action at my Flickr site. Here’s a sample: The face of the anti-war movement: YEARRRGH! A stylish member of Code Pink Grieving anti-war mom […]

LOOTING IN HOUSTON

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2005 06:21 PM

And so it begins. KHOU reporting… When Houston-area residents heeded warnings to flee Hurricane Rita, they left behind nearly abandoned neighborhoods and stores. And a potential playground for thieves. By Friday morning at least three people had been arrested on charges of looting. Houston school district police arrested three juveniles Thursday night who were accused […]

THE NYTIMES OMBUDSMAN IS TOTALLY WORTHLESS

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2005 04:20 PM

You’re going to love this. This morning, I posted a follow-up item on DemCreditScam, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s dirty trick against Maryland GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele. (Send your suggestions for naming the scandal to Hugh Hewitt). I wondered why the NYTimes has failed to print a single article about the scandal, engineered by […]

DYN-O-GEL TO THE RESCUE?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2005 03:32 PM

Lots of readers have been e-mailing me about Dyn-O-Gel, an absorbent material that can apparently be used to slow down hurricanes. I thought it was a joke. But apparently, it is real and is just one in an entire line of “environmental absorbent products.” Who knew? Background on Dyn-O-Gel’s limitations here. Like this:Like Loading…

Don Young: hog wild

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2005 11:59 AM

Pork Jerky, Alaska-style Glenn Reynolds, N.Z. Bear and the rest of the pork-busting blogosphere are doing a fabulous job shedding light on all the dripping fat in Washington. I think Alaska GOP Rep. Don Young deserves a targeted blog pressure campaign all his own. Via the liberal website Think Progress, Young continues to squeal about […]

NEW LEVEE PROBLEMS

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2005 10:49 AM

Via AP: NEW ORLEANS — Water poured over a patched levee Friday, cascading into one of the city’s lowest-lying neighborhoods and heightening fears that Hurricane Rita would re-flood this devastated city. “Our worst fears came true. The levee will breach if we keep on the path we are on right now, which will fill the […]

AL FRANKEN GOES TO SCHOOL

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2005 10:34 AM

Via Tax Prof Blog, Al Franken–talk show host on the foundering Air America radio network–will be lecturing today at Yale Law School. The Business School laughed him off. If you happen to be in the area, please stop by and ask Franken how the Air America panhandling is going, whether he plans to donate any […]

TRAGEDY ON I-45

Anther bad Bush nominee

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2005 09:16 AM

Via Paul Mirengoff at Power Line, more bad news: We’ve been unhappy lately with some of President Bush’s appointees. Generally, the problem has been lack of relevant experience and, perhaps, cronyism. Today, though, I want to focus on a Bush appointee who makes me unhappy precisely because of his relevant experience. I’m referring to the […]

DEMOCRAT DUMPSTER DIVING

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2005 08:55 AM

The Washington Post editorializes about the Dems’ dirty trick against Maryland GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele. The editorial board can’t bring itself to just condemn the act on its own without also mentioning that Republicans do bad things, too. But at least the paper has weighed in on the matter: As political dirty tricks go, […]

Withdraw Myers

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2005 02:37 PM

The editors of National Review come out against the Julie Myers nomination. Excerpts: Given the importance of the position and a history of mismanagement in the immigration service, Congress took the unusual step of inserting a statutory requirement that nominees have a minimum of five years of experience in both management and law enforcement. Even […]

A DESPICABLE DEMOCRAT DIRTY TRICK

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2005 10:45 AM

Have you heard what Democrats working for Sen. Charles Schumer at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee tried to do here in my home state of Maryland to bring down Republican Lt. Gov. Michael Steele? Steele, a rising star in the party, is considering a Senate bid. Two of Schumer’s staffers, including a former researcher for […]
