OperaRage: Idomeneo and Islam

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 27, 2006 07:28 AM

Scene from Idomeneo: Banned in Germany The first thing to remember when reading about the cancellation of Mozart’s Idomeneo in Germany and the opera house Deutsche Oper‘s kowtowing to Islamic bullies is that jihadists hate Western art and music. They hate love songs. They hate Muslim female pop stars. They hate church frescos. And poems. […]

The NIE

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2006 05:44 PM

***updated with my first read*** Here’s the link to the PDF document of the NIE’s key judgements at the DNI site. If the server is down, we’ve got it here. Some of what you didn’t read in the NYTimes: We assess that the Iraq jihad is shaping a new generation of terrorist leaders and operatives; […]

Fox News Derangement Syndrome

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2006 04:05 PM

Taking the cue from the Democrats’ Finger-Jabber-In-Chief. Barbara Boxer gets all Clinton on Fox News with the always gracious Jane Skinner. And then there was that execrable MSNBC pig daring to call Chris Wallace a “monkey.” Fox’s 10th anniversary is just around the corner, so look for more of this churlish behavior from Dems as […]

Pelosi: Behind closed doors

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2006 01:41 PM

Hmm: House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi asked her colleagues Tuesday to close the House’s doors for a highly unusual secret session to discuss a classified intelligence analysis on global terrorism. Such a session hasn’t happened in the House since July 1983, when the chamber went into a closed session to discuss the United States’ support […]

AZ 9/11 memorial: back to the drawing board?

Iowahawk spoofs the first draft of the AZ 9/11 memorial: Ha. We take a serious look at the controversy in today’s Vent. Arizona’s GOP candidate for governor, Len Munsil, is going on the offensive: The Republican candidate for governor says the state’s recently dedicated 9/11 memorial should be torn down, calling it an insult to […]

Judge to Saddam: “Shut up”

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2006 10:11 AM

This is getting ridiculous: Saddam Hussein has been ejected from his trial in Baghdad for the third time in a week after arguing with the judge. His removal came shortly after Judge Mohammed Oreibi al-Khalifa gave him a stern warning to behave himself. The defence team representing Saddam Hussein and his six co-defendants are boycotting […]

Remembering Sister Leonella

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 25, 2006 11:09 PM

Sister Leonella: Paying last respects To borrow a phrase from Rush Limbaugh, the “drive-by media” gave a few hours’ attention to the victims of jihadists’ Pope Rage last weekend and then quickly moved on to the next headline. I think the murder of Sister Leonella deserves a few more seconds of your time. The latest […]

AP runs to the Washington Post

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 25, 2006 03:14 PM

Tom Curley: Head of the A(wt)P What do you do when you are a global news organization under fire for suppressing five-month-old news of the capture of one of your employees by American troops in a Ramadi apartment with an alleged al Qaeda leader and a weapons cache? You run to a sympathetic news organization […]

Wishing war away;pining for a caliphate

The Code Pinkos took over the Hart Senate Office Building on Friday (hat tip: E.) Here’s video of their “War is not the answer” sing-a-long: Someone should have handed them the lyrics to “Give jihad a chance.” *** Meanwhile, their fellow travelers in Britain turned out for an anti-war pow-wow.

ClintonRage: The morning after

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 25, 2006 09:00 AM

Photoshop by David Lunde On Fox and Friends this morning, Chris Wallace had some interesting comments about his interview with the Finger-Jabber: His reaction to Clinton accusing him of having a “smirk:” “What it was was sheer wonder at what I was witnessing.” Heh. On what happened after the interview: “There was no making up […]

Put up or shut up

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 25, 2006 08:38 AM

I’ve already told you how underwhelmed I am by the GOP’s empty, election-season, unfunded border fence gestures. Mickey Kaus detected signs of a Frist fence flake-out on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulous yesterday, and I think Mickey’s radar is dead-on: Has Sen. Frist given up on the border fence? It sure sounded that way […]

Terrible news: A leading Afghan official working on women’s rights has been shot dead in the southern province of Kandahar. Safia Amajan, head of the province’s women’s department, was leaving her home for work when a gunman on a motorcycle opened fire, police said. She may have been targeted by Taleban militants because of their […]

About that National Intelligence Estimate

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 25, 2006 01:28 AM

The NYTimes and WaPo went big yesterday with news of a leaked classified National Intelligence Estimate report, which reportedly claims that the Iraq war is exacerbating Islamic terrorism. WaPo: The war in Iraq has become a primary recruitment vehicle for violent Islamic extremists, motivating a new generation of potential terrorists around the world whose numbers […]

He doth protest too much

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2006 12:49 PM

***scroll for updates*** Wallace to Clinton: “You seem upset.” Check out Hot Air highlights of the Wallace-Clinton fireworks on Fox News Sunday. Wallace was terrific. Unflappable. Unrelenting. Unapologetic. Clinton was a basket case. Newsbusters has the transcript. “Conservative hit job?” Right. Ask your wife about that Clinton-hating Rupert Murdoch. Allah on Clinton’s math: He had […]

Londonistan alert: No raidswithout Muslim approval

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2006 12:14 PM

For. Crying. Out. Loud: Times of London reports: “Police to brief Muslims before terror raids” Police have agreed to consult a panel of Muslim leaders before mounting counter-terrorist raids or arrests. Members of the panel will offer their assessment of whether information police have on a suspect is too flimsy and will also consider the […]
