Open thread: C-SPAN, CPAC, Jindal Derangement Syndrome & more

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2009 08:14 PM

You can catch me on C-SPAN tomorrow morning at 8am Eastern for about half an hour. Try to phone in if you can get through and provide some balance to the moonbat callers. After that, I’ll be at CPAC tomorrow afternoon. PJTV’s “Washington Tea Party” panel, part of the Conservatism 2.0 conference, begins at around […]

“When I grow up I want to be free.”

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2009 05:48 PM

Christian Science Monitor reporter Patrik Jonsson braved the rain and covered the huge Atlanta Tea Party. Yes, an MSM reporter actually acknowledged the existence of the thousands who took to the streets in Georgia and across the country. His fair and balanced piece is here. An excerpt: To be sure, the federal spending package includes […]

The "self-hating" minority smear

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2009 03:25 PM

I’ve dealt with the Left’s “self-hating” minority smear for so long that it bores me. It’s a testament to MSNBC liberals’ utter shallowness that they’ve dragged out the college sophomore-level attack against Michael Steele. Allah’s got video. Minority conservatives hold a special place of gutter contempt in the minds of unhinged liberals, who can never […]

Tea Party photo album: Fiscal responsibility is the new counterculture

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2009 01:56 PM

Scroll down for more updates… I’ve got tons of photos and e-mails pouring in from Tea Party people across the country. I joked to a Christian Science Monitor reporter covering the events that fiscal responsibility is the new counterculture. More coverage/photos/livestreaming at TCOT Report. There is, as the old ’60s song goes, something happening here. […]

Scenes from the D.C. Tea Party; Updated, vid added

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2009 12:35 PM

I’m at the DC Tea Party protest in Lafayette Park. Several hundred taxpayers are here to show their opposition to the spendalooza in Washington, D.C. as part of the nationwide demonstrations. Some photos from my iphone (see my twitpic page for original size). More to come. Send me yours: Favorite sign: 12:30pm Eastern Crowd just […]

The whitewashing of Gary Locke — and why Tucker Carlson deserved to be booed

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2009 07:58 AM

I was amused to read about Tucker Carlson’s finger-wagging to conservatives at CPAC yesterday — apparently repeating the canard that the Right doesn’t do reporting like the vaunted New York Times and needs to stop “just analyzing things based on what the mainstream media has reported.” Yeah, he really said we need to copy the […]

Prayers for Phyllis Schlafly

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2009 01:04 AM

If Phyllis Schlafly were a liberal, she’d already have buildings and holidays named after her, MacArthur genius grants, countless women’s magazine covers, and the unending admiration of the media elite. At 85, this mother, grandmother, and political icon remains a tireless activist, prolific author, and frequent lecturer. But because she is an unapologetic and outspoken […]

Let's get this Tea Party started; Update: DC Tea Party now at Lafayette Park

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 26, 2009 06:48 PM

It’s really on. Tomorrow, thousands of sick and tired taxpayers on the ground and online will participate in “Tea Parties” across the country. Go here for links and locations. Chuck Simmins also has a handy thumbnail guide, as does Little Miss Attila, whose list I’m reprinting below the Tea Party Twitter widget, with as many […]

Pushback: Where is the MSM on ACORN's foreclosure victimhood scam?

The sound of silence.

Oh, where is the omni-pork in your neighborhood?

Spendzilla! Fun facts about Obama's budget-busting budget

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 26, 2009 03:49 PM

This handy breakdown of the Obama budget just landed in the inbox from the GOP leader’s office. Look out! Spendzilla is on the loose: In 2009, federal spending will approach $4 trillion, or 28 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) – a one-third increase in the size of government in a single year. The budget […]

Fairness Doctrine on the Senate floor; Update: DeMint bill passes 87-11, but so does Durbin's

"HONK if you're paying my mortgage"

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 26, 2009 12:05 PM

The Tennessee Republican Party takes on the federal mortgage entitlement mentality. I’m buying one of these bumper stickers today (though I’m a renter, I like their message). From the TN GOP party press release: The Tennessee Republican Party has released a new bumper sticker designed to let people express their frustration with the relentless march […]

Burris, Blago, and a deadbeat son

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 26, 2009 11:15 AM

Just when you think Blago-gate can’t get any slimier, along comes another corruption angle on the story. This one involves embattled Sen. Roland Burris’s son, who — get this — serves as an Illiniois senior housing authority counsel despite facing foreclosure on his own home. And you wonder how we ended up with a tax […]

Wealthy Bay Area homeowners demand piece of mortgage bailout pie

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 26, 2009 10:33 AM

If it isn’t fraudulent ACORN foreclosure “victims” siphoning off taxpayer funds, it’s well-off home borrowers in Nancy Pelosi’s backyard demanding a piece of the mortgage bailout pie. Moochers to the left of me, moochers to the far left… Legislation heading to the floor of the House today would help more Bay Area homeowners qualify for […]

Who is John Galt?

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 26, 2009 09:55 AM

I’m not surprised to hear, via Instapundit, that sales of Ayn Rand’s books are reportedly rising. In fact, I’ve spotted quite a few “Who is John Galt?” bumper stickers cropping up. And, of course, there was this sign at the anti-porkulus protest in Denver last week: (Photo via People’s Press Collective) Here’s the Atlas Society […]

Why do Democrats hate D.C. school kids?

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 26, 2009 09:28 AM

As I noted last night, the House omni-pork bill includes a provision to strangle D.C. public school choice. President Obama, you chose the D.C. school you thought best for your daughters. Why won’t you let other D.C. parents do the same? Andrew Coulson blasts the Democrats behind the measure: SINCE 2004, a federally funded private-school […]

Gasp: DHS Secretary alarmed that immigration laws enforced under her watch

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 26, 2009 09:04 AM

Oh, the open-borders crowd’s heads are exploding. Under President Obama and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano’s watch, federal immigration agents had the nerve to — gasp! — enforce immigration laws. How could this happen? Quick, launch an investigation! This must not be allowed to stand! Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Wednesday ordered a review of […]
