DENMARK GOES ON THE OFFENSIVE

By mmguestblogger  •  March 31, 2006 11:22 PM

A P.R. offensive. Check out the photo that accompanies the article. Think it’ll work? Tony Blair’s reaching out too, agreeing this week to set up a forum with Indonesia to help resolve cultural “misunderstandings” between Islam and the west. Like this one, for instance. Or this one, in which Afghan clerics justify human rights violations […]

IMMIGRATION ROUND-UP: HUBRIS EDITION

By mmguestblogger  •  March 31, 2006 08:42 PM

Summit’s over. Apparently, illegals are just “guests” we forgot to invite. This isn’t the first time the president’s played fast and loose with labels in the context of immigration, either. Michelle nailed him on it a year ago. Elsewhere at the summit, Vicente Fox displayed some cojones of his own. From the WaPo article linked […]

MCKINNEY PLAYS THE RACE CARD

By mmguestblogger  •  March 31, 2006 04:49 PM

(Updated below with video) (Updated below with link to Glover/Belafonte video) You knew it was coming. Ace certainly did. She alleges, through her lawyer, that her real crime was “being in Congress while black.” I’ll try to have video later of her press conference with Danny Glover. Meanwhile, this morning’s post is here. UPDATE: An […]

WHAT’S CHE GOT TO DO WITH IT?

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 31, 2006 04:30 PM

Just had to pop in for a brief moment to bring you a photo montage of Che Guevara cultists marching out of the shadows over the past week in L.A., Santa Cruz, Watsonville, and Salinas: Val Prieto is disgusted: Now, if you think you can criticize me for not supporting your protest while insulting me […]

UNCONFIRMED: ABC SUSPENDS JOHN GREEN FOR ONE MONTH

By mmguestblogger  •  March 31, 2006 04:04 PM

So says TV Newser of the Bush-bashing GMA producer recently made famous by Matt Drudge. UPDATE: The New York Observer’s saying it too. But here’s something that wasn’t in the Drudge article: On March 30, The New York Post’s “Page Six” quoted from another Green e-mail, this one about former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. […]

“THERE’S A WOMAN HANGING”

By mmguestblogger  •  March 31, 2006 03:29 PM

I’d be seriously remiss if I didn’t link this. You’ll find two and a half hours of audio at the link if you scroll down a bit, and if you scroll down a bit more, a complete transcript. The Times also has a full report replete with graphics. The words of the callers were removed […]

SCHIAVO: ONE YEAR LATER

By mmguestblogger  •  March 31, 2006 01:57 PM

Terri Schiavo’s husband and parents marked the anniversary of her death fittingly this week, appearing nightly on cable news shows to (a) claim the moral high ground while (b) accusing each other of having helped cause her death. A video montage is below; it might take a minute to load, but it’s worth your time. […]

UN MOMENT DECISIF

By mmguestblogger  •  March 31, 2006 11:51 AM

Jacques Chirac is expected to take to the airwaves at 1 p.m. EST and inform France’s youth that, no, they’re not entitled to lifetime job security by age 26. French auto makers are already bracing for a spike in demand. Stay tuned to this post for updates in case protesters respond with insufficient “nuance.” Brussels […]

BUSTED

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 31, 2006 09:41 AM

Still on vacation, but wanted to bring you an update on the American flag vandal at Montebello H.S. (via the Whittier Daily News). He or she was from neighboring El Rancho USD: A student protest that resulted in a Mexican flag being flown on top of an upside-down U.S. flag at a local school has […]

MCKINNEY’S GOING TO JAIL

By mmguestblogger  •  March 31, 2006 09:29 AM

Well, potentially: Pirate’s Cove, quoting the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, says Capitol Hill police will seek an arrest warrant next week. UPDATE: Via Drudge, no apology. Serves the cop right for stopping someone he didn’t know from walking around the metal detector at the entrance to a federal building, I guess. UPDATE: Nancy Pelosi says the cop’s […]

QUESTIONING JILL CARROLL

By mmguestblogger  •  March 31, 2006 09:06 AM

Howard Kurtz says something seems amiss. This is a courageous young woman. I must say, though, that I found her first interview yesterday rather odd. Carroll seemed bent on giving her captors a positive review, going on about how well they treated her, how they gave her food and let her go to the bathroom. […]

POTLUCK

By mmguestblogger  •  March 30, 2006 11:56 PM

Too good not to blog, not good enough to warrant their own post: links to tide you over until the a.m. · The hammer’s coming down on Iran … very, very gently. Iran is not an imminent threat and sanctions against the Islamic Republic would be a “bad idea”, the UN nuclear watchdog chief has […]

SPRING BREAK IN CANCUN

By mmguestblogger  •  March 30, 2006 09:30 PM

The president’s in Mexico today and tomorrow to deliver a stern message to Vicente Fox: we’re not going to stand for any more illegal immigrants … so we’ll have to call them “guest workers” instead. Tom Tancredo: “I wish he’d think about the party and of course I also wish he’d think about the country.” […]

ABDUL RAHMAN UPDATE

By mmguestblogger  •  March 30, 2006 08:36 PM

He’s doing fine. He has to be filmed from behind during interviews, and he’s getting a new identity from the Italian government and so that the local jihadis don’t find him and cut his head off. But other than that, he’s doing swell. Spiegel reports on a day in the life of Afghanistan’s Christians: The […]

THE HECKLER’S VETO [UPDATED]

By mmguestblogger  •  March 30, 2006 04:24 PM

Much talk in the blogosphere today about the refusal of Borders and Waldenbooks to carry this month’s issue of Free Inquiry because it reprints Jyllands-Posten’s cartoons of Mohammed. Not much talk, though, about another magazine’s brave decision not only to publish the cartoons, but to put the most provocative one right on its cover. Submitted […]

NANCY GETS HER GUN

By mmguestblogger  •  March 30, 2006 04:10 PM

The Democrats’ national security plan is out. And it’s looking damned good. Kurtz is happy that we might finally have a debate on the subject that involves more than one side stammering, “Bush knew.” Quote: The Dems have been delaying putting forth any sort of Contract with America because, well, why interfere with your opponents […]

“THANK YOU, EDUARDO, FOR OPENING OUR EYES”

By mmguestblogger  •  March 30, 2006 02:36 PM

In case you missed it, Michelle showed up on Fox & Friends this morning with a few choice words for deejay/illegal-immigration-protest-pusher Eduardo Sotelo. Words like “thank you.” Click for video Lots more eye-opening going on this afternoon courtesy of Drudge. Recent eye-openers from Michelle are here and here. Elsewhere, VDH recommends a “one-time exemption” for […]

JILL CARROLL FREED

By mmguestblogger  •  March 30, 2006 01:35 PM

Excellent news. Jawa‘s the place for all your Jill Carroll needs. Raw footage of her interview on Baghdad television, via CNN, is here. Updates are coming in intermittently to CSM, too, so stay tuned. Nathan Goulding of NRO’s Media Blog questions the timing: “No media outlets have picked up on this: that perhaps the rescue […]

ROCK STAR

By mmguestblogger  •  March 30, 2006 12:43 PM

Many thanks to Michelle for letting me take the helm of the Millennium Falcon for the next few days. It’s an honor to play Chewbacca to her Han. Got a few things in the works for this afternoon. In the meantime, here’s amateur zoologist Zombie with the latest dispatch from utopia. All the stars in […]

ALLAH IS IN THE HOUSE

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 30, 2006 11:17 AM

Hey readers – I’m taking a few days off for an overdue family mini-vacation. While I’m away, I’m pleased and honored to hand over the keys to the one and only Allah Pundit as guest-blogger. If you followed his brilliant work over the past few years–especially during the 2004 campaign–he needs no introduction. For the […]

Documents of the “undocumented”

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 30, 2006 06:05 AM

Search Google News for the term “undocumented.” You’ll get thousands of hits like these: And on and on and on. Is there any clearer illumination of the agenda-driven mainstream media than the infiltration of this open-borders euphemism into the supposedly objective news coverage of the illegal immigration debate? As I’ve said many times, “undocumented workers” […]

REP. MCKINNEY: QUEEN OF THE UNHINGED

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 29, 2006 08:56 PM

***1050pm EST update: McKinney responds…”Earlier today I had an unfortunate confrontation with a Capitol Hill Police Officer….I was urgently trying to get to an important meeting on time to fulfill my obligations to my constituents. Unfortunately, the Police Officer did not recognize me as a Member of Congress and a confrontation ensued. I did not […]

ANOTHER AMERICAN FLAG DOWN

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 29, 2006 06:48 PM

Scripps reports in Florida: The Stars and Stripes have been replaced by the Mexican flag at Chasewood North, and residents of the condominium community off Central Boulevard are puzzled as to who made the switch. “I woke up Sunday morning and looked up from my patio and then realized that the American flag wasn’t on […]

ABDUL RAHMAN HAS LANDED

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 29, 2006 11:49 AM

Just in: An Afghan Christian convert, who had faced the death penalty in his country for abandoning Islam, has arrived in Italy which has offered him asylum, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said on Wednesday. “He is already in Italy,” Berlusconi told a news conference in Rome. But others have been left behind at the […]

THE AMERICAN FLAG COMES SECOND

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 29, 2006 01:15 AM

***scroll for updates…new photo added below of a student in Dallas screamed at by an angry mob for carrying an American flag…plus fence-hopping at Montebello H.S…unreality-based Ted Kennedy gets the Clueless Blowhard of the Day Award…chanting in Las Vegas: “La raza unida jamas sera vencida,” or “The united (Hispanic) race will never be defeated.”…protests turn […]
