Supreme Court to NYTimes: Buzz off

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 27, 2006 07:03 PM

I noted the NYTimes’ attempt this weekend to seek protection from Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for two accused blabbermouth reporters, whom the feds believe tipped off two Muslim charities fronting for terror. Well, wonders never cease. The Times reports this afternoon that the court rebuffed the leak-dependent paper: The United States Supreme Court refused today […]

What’s it all about, Alcee?

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 27, 2006 10:24 AM

Fool Last week, disgraced and disgraceful Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) fired off an unhinged rant to fellow House Democrats denying he was corrupt and attacking “Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Michael Barone, Drudge, anonymous bloggers, and other assorted misinformed fools” who have cited his House impeachment and Senate conviction on bribery and […]

***update: here’s the AP dispatch of the event this morning…*** Imam Omar Shahin: Milking it The saga of the flying imams continues. It ain’t over ’til the grievance-mongers sing.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m on a holiday schedule, counting blessings and enjoying family time. There are a number of worthy causes I wanted to mention. Instead of spending on Black Friday, how about contributing to one of these? *A group from one of my favorite, indispensable blogs, My Pet Jawa, is […]

What American journalists should be thankful for

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 22, 2006 11:05 AM

In between breathless condemnations of the Bush administration for stifling its free speech, endless court filings demanding classified and sensitive information from the military and intelligence agencies, and self-pitying media industry confabs bemoaning their hemorrhaging circulations (with the exception of the New York Post), my colleagues in the American media don’t have much to time […]

Internet defamation: A dissent

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 22, 2006 08:28 AM

I suppose, as a blogger, I should join in and cheer the much-buzzed-about decision in Barrett v. Rosenthal this week, which ruled in California that Internet users who post (to Web sites or discussion groups) defamatory statements originally made by others are immune from liability. Eugene Volokh summarizes: The California Supreme Court just held, in […]

Indian clerics frown on “un-Islamic ringtones”

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 21, 2006 11:24 PM

Uh oh. I hope they don’t start tossing cellphones onto their perpetually burning bonfire: LUCKNOW, India – Muslim clerics at a leading seminary in India have asked people to refrain from using verses from the Quran as ringtones for their mobile phones, saying the practice was un-Islamic. Quran verses “are not meant for entertainment,” said […]

Margaret Spellings: “I’ll take Educrats’ Most Embarrassing Moments for $800, Alex.” Oh, dear. The US Secretary of Education appeared on Jeopardy! earlier this evening…and was more than twenty thousand dollars behind at the start of Final Jeopardy… …But she pulled through in the end for a second-place finish, losing to Michael McKean of Lenny-from-Laverne&Shirley and […]

Have a P.C. Un-Thanksgiving

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 21, 2006 08:17 PM

Some public educators aren’t satisfied with teaching elementary school students about gratitude and sharing on Thanksgiving. No, they’ve used the holiday as an excuse to teach oppression studies 101 to third-graders: Teacher Bill Morgan walks into his third-grade class wearing a black Pilgrim hat made of construction paper and begins snatching up pencils, backpacks and […]

Flying imams, leaping CAIR

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 21, 2006 07:52 PM

Yes, I’ve followed the case of the six praying imams removed from a US Airways flight at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and questioned by police for several hours before being released. As sure as the rooster crows, CAIR is screaming and the Muslim leaders of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage are calling for a boycott. […]

Not dead yet

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 21, 2006 04:43 PM

Ugh: The O.J. Simpson project is dead, but the book and the TV interview could turn up in bootleg form in this age of YouTube and EBay, when scandalous information seldom stays secret for long. News Corp., owner of Fox Broadcasting and publisher HarperCollins, called off Simpson’s “confession” Monday after advertisers, booksellers and even Fox […]

The State Department strikes again

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 21, 2006 12:42 PM

Remember this Arabic-speaking State Department clown, Albert Fernandez, who went on al Jazeera TV and trashed the U.S. as arrogant and stupid? Well, speaking of arrogant and stupid, guess what? Charles Johnson notes that the State Department has decided to give Fernandez an award. Via Brit Hume’s Grapevine last week on Fox News: Fernandez was […]

La Raza’s favorite GOP candidate

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 21, 2006 09:32 AM

So, Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback wants to be the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee. Great, just what post-9/11 America needs: Another open-borders Republican in the White House. Ed Morrissey weighs in: Brownback may have some name recognition among the politicos and the blogs, but he barely registers among rank-and-file voters. He and Duncan Hunter have the […]
