LIVEBLOGGING THE SPEECH

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 31, 2006 07:58 PM

I had planned to be in D.C. tonight to join a cool bunch of bloggers at the State of the Union Bloggers Row sponsored by the House GOP Conference. Unfortunately, my son has a terrible stomach bug that requires Dr. Mom’s TLC. Don’t know if I’ll be able to catch the speech live, so check […]

STATE OF THE MOONBATS

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 31, 2006 03:29 PM

What the anti-Bush brigade will be doing in San Francisco tonight before the State of the Union address: (via SFChron): San Francisco police will close several streets around Union Square this evening for a demonstration by activists protesting President Bush’s policies, city officials said today. The protest by the World Can’t Wait coalition is scheduled […]

FIGHT THE BULLIES OF ISLAM

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 31, 2006 12:31 PM

Thanks to Gaijin Biker for the icon, which you can download at his blog (on the right-hand sidebar). See also the new Support Denmark page (hat tip: Paul Belien of the indispensable Brussels Journal). As I noted yesterday, Judith Apter Klinghoffer is spearheading the Buy Danish campaign. A few establishments to support: The Danish Food […]

ALITO CONFIRMED

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 31, 2006 11:19 AM

Vote: 58-42. “Without objection, so ordered.” Breitbart/AP: The former U.S. appeals court judge will quickly be sworn in at the Supreme Court before his expected appearance at Bush’s annual State of the Union speech Tuesday evening with the White House’s other new Supreme Court judge, Chief Justice John Roberts. Alito will be ceremonially sworn in […]

More on the conservatives=racist study

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 31, 2006 10:21 AM

Yesterday, I mentioned the Washington Post’s smelly little article on an unpublished study purporting to associate conservative support for President Bush with bias against blacks. Newsbusters’ Tim Graham noted that the reporter who penned the piece had also mentioned the same researchers and the same study in a Washington Post magazine piece (titled, ironically enough, […]

MORE ON THE CONSERVATIVES=RACISTS STUDY

By thisistwitchy  •  January 31, 2006 10:21 AM

Yesterday, I mentioned the Washington Post’s smelly little article on an unpublished study purporting to associate conservative support for President Bush with bias against blacks. Newsbusters’ Tim Graham noted that the reporter who penned the piece had also mentioned the same researchers and the same study in a Washington Post magazine piece (titled, ironically enough, […]

STATE OF THE UNION: DO-IT-YOURSELF

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 31, 2006 09:48 AM

Lorie Byrd posts her list of things she wants to hear President Bush address tonight. La Shawn Barber has one thing on her mind: Illegal immigration. Agreed. In addition to a strong defense of our sovereignty against the rash of southern border incursions and immigration enforcement-undermining antics of the Mexican government, I’d like to hear […]

A NAZI PHOTOSHOP SMEAR

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 31, 2006 07:37 AM

Power Line blows the whistle on the MSM’s favorite whistleblower Coleen Rowley, who is running for Congress in Minnesota on a platform of advocating “ethical decision-making.” Her idea of ethical decision-making? Photoshopping an image of her GOP opponent, Rep. John Kline, as bumbling Nazi Col. Klink. Her campaign website replaced Rep. Kline’s military uniform (he’s […]

CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR SHEDS THE MASK

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2006 11:30 PM

Download and watch the video (.wmv file). 9.2MB. Large file, but worth it. You’ll love these snippets from the cable news network that admitted suppressing news of atrocities in Iraq in exchange for access from Saddam Hussein to Baghdad. It’s CNN international correspondent Christiane Amanpour shedding whatever thin mask of objectivity she has worn and […]

SUPPORT DENMARK: WHY THE FORBIDDEN CARTOONS MATTER

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2006 09:37 PM

Last October, I blogged about a Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, and its cartoonists being threatened by Muslim extremists for publishing cartoons about the prophet Muhammad deemed offensive by Islamist p.c. bulllies. See here and here. For the past four months, The Brussels Journal has relentlessly covered the ensuing uproar from the Muslim world and the battle […]

KENNEDY UNHINGED: LIVEBLOGGING THE MELTDOWN

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2006 04:36 PM

***updated with video link*** I am watching Sen. Ted Kennedy on C-SPAN unraveling before my eyes. He is screaming. The face is fire-engine red. The fists are waving furiously. Here’s my rough transcript of his ongoing diatribe smearing the Alito nomination as a step backwards toward mass discrimination: KENNEDY: …All you have to do, Mr. […]

THE NEW ZAWAHIRI TAPE

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2006 03:19 PM

Al Jazeera (who else) has it: Walid Phares at The Counterterrorism Blog has in-depth textual analysis: The new Zawahiri videotape released by al Jazeera today shows a sophistication in the propaganda war waged by the Jihadists worldwide against the US and its allies. Designed to “crumble” the morale of the American public and “boost” the […]

POLITICIZED SCIENCE

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2006 02:50 PM

So, the Washington Post is hyping a study purporting to show that conservatives are more biased against blacks than liberals. (Hat tip: Tim Graham at Newsbusters, who has more.) The study, which was presented at a conference held by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, has not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal […]

I WANT CINDY TO RUN

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2006 11:21 AM

I wholeheartedly endorse the Cindy Sheehan for Senate campaign. Conservative bloggers are standing enthusiastically with moonbats in support of Cindy’s potential challenge to Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Jim Hoft announces the launch of a Cindy for Senate blog. Go visit the new site and register your endorsement of the Idiotarian of the Year. Jeff at Beautiful […]

WHAT LIBERAL MEDIA?

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2006 11:19 AM

Cam Edwards, over at the cool new group blog On Tap, exposes pro-Kerry activism by an ABC Radio vice president. The veep declined to comment.

The Political Teen, Ian Schwartz, has a nifty new blog at Expose The Left. Bookmark it.

OUR RIGHT TO SECURITY

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2006 09:59 AM

Debra Burlingame speaks for me: We now have the ability to put remote control cameras on the surface of Mars. Why should we allow enemies to annihilate us simply because we lack the clarity or resolve to strike a reasonable balance between a healthy skepticism of government power and the need to take proactive measures […]

PHOTO OF THE DAY

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2006 10:38 PM

No comment necessary: Yahoo!/AP caption: In this photo released by Venezuela’s Miraflores Press, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez embraces visiting U.S. peace activist Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, during his national broadcast ‘Hello President’ in Caracas, Venezuela, Sunday, Jan. 29, 2006.

DAVOS: RECAPPING THE GLOBAL BLOVIATE-O-FEST (W/ VIDEO)

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2006 02:04 PM

The World Economic Forum in Davos, which attracts the world’s wealthiest and windiest bloviators, wrapped up this weekend. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt turned up, along with Michael Douglas, Peter Gabriel, retired tennis player Monica Seles, and other We Are The World Hollywood celebrity-types.

BRITAIN GOES PRO-LIFE?

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2006 11:35 AM

Interesting news from the left-wing Guardian newspaper: A majority of women in Britain want the abortion laws to be tightened to make it harder, or impossible, for them to terminate a pregnancy. Evidence of a widespread public demand for the government to further restrict women’s right to have an abortion is revealed in a remarkable […]

THE NYTIMES' EMPTY SUIT

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2006 10:59 AM

Read NYTimes ombudsman Byron Calame’s lame column today. Don’t worry, it’ll take you 30 seconds. Mediacrity delivers a dead-on skewering: With his column on how space is divided up among departments, which reads as if it were written by an intern for the Times Talk house organ, Barney has abandoned all pretense of being a […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2006 10:46 AM

Remembering the Challenger disaster: Dr. Sanity, a former NASA flight surgeon, was at Cape Canaveral in Florida on that fateful day 20 years ago assigned as the Crew Surgeon for Mission 51-L. Below the Beltway remembers. Mike’s Noise has a link-filled tribute and recommends this video commemoration at Chris Valentine’s. NASA remembers. Space.com remembers. I’ll […]
