Schumer opposed flu pandemic funding in stimulus, too, you morons

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 27, 2009 12:52 PM

Sorry to interrupt all the liberal blogosphere’s unhinged GOP-bashing over conservative opposition to flu pandemic funding in the porkulus bill, but… Well. Just an inconvenient reminder: “All those little porky things that the House put in, the money for the [National] Mall or the sexually transmitted diseases or the flu pandemic, they’re all out,” Schumer […]

Of course: Swine flu is all the evil GOP’s fault!

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 27, 2009 11:39 AM

Well, it didn’t take long for partisan Democrats to blame the swine flu outbreak on the Republican Party. Here’s the line: Since House Republicans all opposed the trillion-dollar-porkulus, which included funding for pandemic preparations, it’s all. Our. Fault. No, really: When House Appropriations Committee chairman David Obey, the Wisconsin Democrat who has long championed investment […]

Andrew Lloyd Webber: Going Galt in Britain?

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 27, 2009 09:57 AM

A powerful manifesto from renowned composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, who fears an exodus of talent from Britain in response to high taxes: I am 61 years old. I have lived and worked in Britain all my life. Not even in the dark days of penal Labour taxation in the Seventies did I have any intention […]

Roxana Saberi blogburst

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2009 01:41 PM

US journalist Roxana Saberi turns 32 today in an Iranian prison. After an hour-long trial, she was sentenced to eight years behind bars for “espionage.” She was initially told she was arrested for buying bootleg wine, and then because she was working as a journalist without a license. She’s now on day five of a […]

Another black mark for HUD nominee Ron Sims

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 24, 2009 05:36 PM

I wrote two weeks ago about transparency killer Ron Sim, the King County WA bureaucrat nominated to the no. 2 spot at HUD by supposed transparency savior Barack Obama. Those in his backyard who know him best know the lengths Sims has gone to in order to obstruct public disclosure and stop taxpayers from finding […]

Hot Air exclusive: Ja-No apologizes to American Legion

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 24, 2009 03:03 PM

Ed Morrissey has the scoop, and also reports that the American Legion “believes that Napolitano will withdraw that report in favor of a better, more specific, and narrower report on actual threats.” Ja-No is scheduled to testify about DHS immigration enforcement policies (or rather, the lack thereof) on May 6. The Foundry’s got questions. Like […]

The Thrilla in Vanilla: Gore vs. Gingrich in Global Warming ‘Showdown’?

By Doug Powers  •  April 24, 2009 11:03 AM

It’s on! Or maybe not so much: The House Energy and Commerce Committee has added Republican former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) to the roster of witnesses for its hearing on a climate bill today. He joins former Vice President Al Gore on the witness list. The Hill is reporting the meeting of these two […]

Public to White House: Move on; Pentagon prepares to release more torture photos

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 24, 2009 09:54 AM

Results from the latest Rasmussen poll show a public more in tune with Dick Cheney than George Soros: Fifty-eight percent (58%) believe the Obama administration’s recent release of CIA memos about the harsh interrogation methods used on terrorism suspects endangers the national security of the United States. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found […]

Sean hearts Hugo: The saga continues

By Doug Powers  •  April 23, 2009 08:51 PM

Every few days I like to post something to remind us that, in spite of all the madness and stresses that may encompass our daily lives, we remain inexorably sane and grounded in comparison to some of the attention-starved, hypocritical, “phonier than the contents of bikini tops on Malibu beaches” Hollywood Left sect. Today’s poster-boy […]

Justice Dept. attorney: Murtha should be immune from Haditha lawsuit

By Doug Powers  •  April 23, 2009 01:58 PM

It looks as if justice may once again prevail… for John Murtha. For the troops he defamed, probably not so much: A Justice Department attorney said U.S. Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., should be immune from a defamation lawsuit filed by a former Marine from western Pennsylvania. Essentially, Murtha’s attorney said the lawsuit filed in September […]

The resurgence of left-wing extremism

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 23, 2009 10:26 AM

Well, DHS isn’t going to be issuing alerts about it any time soon. But it’s here: the resurgence of left-wing extremism. Data point – MoveOn.org wailing about torture and indulging in Cheney Derangement Syndrome: Data point – Hillary cackles at serious questions about the effectiveness of enhanced interrogation. Data point – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi […]

More speech-stiflers at UNC-Chapel Hill Updated

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 22, 2009 10:47 PM

No, they haven’t learned. And yes, it is time for UNC-Chapel Hill administrators to turn the mirror on themselves and ask how they fostered this pathetic climate of intolerance. After driving Tom Tancredo off campus, student mobsters again attempted to shut down a pro-immigration enforcement advocate, Rep. Virgil Goode. He was to speak on the […]

Humans make Earth Day better

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 22, 2009 03:33 PM

From the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a human-centered Earth Day public service announcement: Make sure to share the vid with your children and help immunize the next generation against enviro-nitwit-ism. Meghan Cox Gurdon surveys eco-fear-mongering in children’s literature: If you have somehow missed the fact that April 22 is Earth Day, it’s probably because you are […]
