Let’s play “Hide the Cross”

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 29, 2006 10:53 AM

The College of William and Mary has decided to make its famous campus chapel less “faith specific” and more “welcoming” by getting rid of the cross on its altar. Administrators huff that they’re not tossing the cross aside–just putting it away when necessary to prevent students from being offended: In an e-mail to the college […]

The Associated (w/terrorists) Press strikes again

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 28, 2006 11:13 AM

The Associated (with terrorists) Press reported yesterday on a lobbying campaign to free its Iraqi-based photographer Bilal Hussein, who has been in U.S. military detention since April (a fact first reported not by the A(w/t)P, but here on this blog). Who is spearheading the Free Bilal lobbying campaign? Yup, the A(w/t)P: The U.S. military’s indefinite […]

The fake boarding pass generator

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2006 10:01 PM

Christopher Soghoian, a PhD student in the School of Informatics at Indiana University Bloomington, created a fake boarding pass generator to expose flaws in airport security. A reader sent this link to the generator, but it looks like it has been taken down. Looks like he could be in big trouble for blowing the whistle. […]

Where in the world: Smutgate edition

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2006 04:14 PM

***see updates…Ed Morrissey comes forward with details about how the Allen campaign approached him to disseminate the Webb novel passages. He declined…*** I’ll be on FNC’s Big Story with John Gibson, 5pm Eastern, to talk about dirty politics and blabbermouths. Update: Here’s the vid.

“Wickedness”

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2006 01:47 PM

Find out whose “wickedness” Mark Steyn is talking about in part two of my interview with him on Hot Air TV. Yes, we talked about sex in part one. But nothing smutty. Just real issues. Remember them? Update: Apropos of our discussion about the need for feminists rising up to challenge Islam, that Australian imam […]

Hollywood hatred

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2006 12:11 PM

Don Murphy is the producer of Natural Born Killers, Apt Pupil, Double Dragon, and The Transformers movie. He was the former business partner of unhinged, trash-talking, blackface-endorsing left-wing blogger, Jane Hamsher. These people can’t express themselves without sinking into the gutter. Here’s Murphy’s response to pro-life actors Patricia Heaton and Jim Cavaziel, posted on his […]

Politics and pulp fiction

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2006 11:53 AM

***bumping back to the top…Webb responds…AUDIO….*** Remember how pathetic it was when the Left tried to make scandals out of books written by Lynne Cheney and Scooter Libby? Cheney wrote a pulpy novel, “Sisters,” about a frontier woman that included graphic sexual passages and lesbian lovers. (A conservative-bashing site reprinted excerpts here.) Libby wrote a […]

“Idomeneo” returns

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2006 10:36 AM

Coming to Berlin The Mozart opera cancelled in Berlin because of fear that Muslims would react violently to an added scene that included the decapitated head of Mohammed (along with the heads of other religious figures) is headed to the stage. BBC reports: The Deutsche Oper in the German capital said the production of Idomeneo […]

Objectivity at NBC News

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2006 08:35 PM

NBC’s Baghdad reporter, Richard Engel, declares: “I think war should be illegal…I’m basically a pacifist.” *** In other news, a BBC reporter embeds with the Taliban. Well, it’s not really news, is it?

Google bombing is for losers

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2006 04:15 PM

The NYTimes spotlights moonbats who have nothing better to do with their time. Like Bryan said last week: These are the people who are going to build a nuclear Google bomb and drop it on the GOP? For some reason, I feel less threatened by this than I guess I should. Their cyber nuke will […]

The price of insulting Islam

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2006 04:11 PM

The stalwart Robert Spencer, author of yet another best-selling book the MSM doesn’t want to talk about, reports on continued death threats against Afghanistan apostate Abdul Rahman. Watch and learn. Meanwhile, the Jyllands Posten has prevailed in a Danish court, which dismissed a lawsuit by Muslims offended by the paper’s publication of cartoons depicting Mohammed, […]

The Rush Limbaugh referendum

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2006 10:50 AM

***update: Michael J. Fox responds on CBS: he was overmedicated, not acting*** Brian Maloney has a thorough round-up on the Rush Limbaugh vs. Michael J. Fox battle. As expected, the MSM is going bananas over Limbaugh’s pointed commentary. Liberal celebrities stride onto the political stage with an imperial sense of entitlement–expecting to fling barbed criticism […]

Border security symbolism

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2006 10:14 AM

President Bush signed the Secure Fence Act this morning. (Video here.) Efforts to water it down, such as it is, are still underway: Sens. John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison, both Texas Republicans, had wanted to amend the fence bill to give local governments more say about where fencing is erected. They lost that battle, […]

CNN says no to Bush assassination ad

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2006 09:14 AM

Well, I guess the Jihadist News Network does have some standards: Major U.S. news outlets CNN and National Public Radio will not air paid ads or sponsor announcements for a controversial film depicting the assassination of President George W. Bush, citing the film’s content, network spokeswomen said on Tuesday. The film, “Death of a President,” […]

Listen in on a White House meeting

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2006 01:41 AM

Thanks to Michael Barone, whose excellent US News.com blog is a model for dinosaur MSM journalists who are still stuck in the 20th century, you can listen to an hour-long discussion President Bush had with eight conservative columnists. It’s a terrific public service to post the entire on-the-record conversation. More mainstream media outlets should do […]

Breaking news you won’t find on Google’s Chinese search engine: A Chinese court on Wednesday jailed a dissident for three years for inciting subversion with an Internet essay praising pro-rights protests in Hong Kong, a human rights group said.

A Ca-lame response

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 25, 2006 06:31 PM

NYTimes ombudsman Byron Calame: (Not) looking out for you A few days ago, I asked NYTimes public editor Byron Calame to explain exactly what he meant when he complained about the Bush administration’s “vicious criticism” of the newspaper’s reckless decision to expose a top-secret terrorist banking data surveillance program. I received a response this afternoon. […]

The difference between D’s and R’s

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 25, 2006 01:36 PM

Don’t measure your drapes yet, lady A few weeks ago, while blogging on the road (always a somewhat risky thing to do), I glibly mentioned the possibility of sitting at home for the midterms over heated disagreement with the Bush administration on immigration. Many grass-roots conservatives have grievances with how the White House has handled […]

The Kennedy-KGB connection

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 25, 2006 01:10 PM

Bryan Preston digs deeper in an interview today with author Paul Kengor about that reported translated memo from the KGB archives, dated May 14, 1983, that describes an offer made to the KGB on behalf of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) by former Senator John Tunney (D-CA), a fellow Democrat and close friend of Kennedy‚Äôs. […]

Coming up in 15 minutes. Allah will have vid at Hot Air and I’ll have more to say after it starts. Stay tuned. Rich Lowry thinks Bush will “help himself” with this appearance.
