GOP Rep. Pence: “What’s the hurry? What are they hiding?”

Melt the phones: Cap-and-tax target list

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 26, 2009 12:37 AM

The House will vote on the cap-and-tax bill today. Make your voice heard. Phil Kerpen at AFP has compiled a very helpful list, which I’m reprinting in full here. Check AFP site for latest updates and alerts. Ask ’em how they can ram through this eco-boondoggle with EPA hide-and-seek games on global warming science going […]

EPA plays hide and seek; suppressed report revealed

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 26, 2009 12:30 AM

My syndicated column below slams the EPA for suppressing inconvenient truths about Obama’s politicized global warming agenda. As I blogged early Wednesday afternoon, the Competitive Enterprise Institute released e-mails detailing how eco-bureaucrats stifled a senior researcher who challenged the agency’s reliance on outdated data to support its greenhouse gas “public endangerment” finding. Breaking late tonight, […]

Remembering Michael Jackson

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 25, 2009 06:55 PM

So, you know by now that Michael Jackson died today after cardiac arrest (just a few hours after the death of Farrah Fawcett). His adult life was marred by lurid molestation charges, endless displays of bizarre behavior with his three children, plastic surgery horrors, and financial mayhem. But he was a musical genius in his […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 25, 2009 03:43 PM

So many of you helped raise more than $1 million last year for the first-ever web-a-thon for the troops. Beginning at 4pm Eastern and running for eight straight hours, Troopathon 2009 will broadcast across the Internet. You can watch right here on Ustream as Melanie Morgan and Andrew Breitbart co-host the show and welcome dozens […]

The Obamacare Show: Bombed

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 25, 2009 02:46 PM

In a rare show of good taste, America TV viewers turned off the ABC News/White House infomercial on Obamacare. They should have listened to me and included John Stossel in their programming! Via The Live Feed: President Obama’s town hall meeting on health care delivered a sickly rating Wednesday evening. The one-hour ABC News special […]

Bad taste award

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 25, 2009 12:21 PM

I don’t find anything funny about the Sanford affair. It’s the mom in me thinking about four handsome boys on Father’s Day weekend abandoned by their stupid, selfish father, who was busy tanning with his mistress in Argentina. Heart-breaking. Yes. Nauseating. Yes. Maddening. Yes. Funny? No. Cruel derision crude humor are to be expected of […]

A test for Denver International Airport

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 25, 2009 11:38 AM

I mentioned the other day that far Left ground troops from “Progressive Future,” funded by left-wing billionaire Peter Lewis, were petitioning travelers at Denver International Airport with anti-Fox and anti-Rush Limbaugh literature in support of Obamacare. Denver Post columnist David Harsanyi asks some good questions: …I was just wondering, if young people who wanted to […]

No "robust debate" on amnesty

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 25, 2009 08:45 AM

The White House shut out immigration enforcement voices from its illegal immigration summit. Sigh. The thing is, this is exactly the kind of railroading that would have occurred if John McCain had won the White House. From GOP Rep. Steve King’s office: Congressman Steve King, the ranking member on the House Immigration Subcommittee, today reacted […]

The Obamacare Show: Two dissenting docs challenge Dear Leader

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 24, 2009 09:20 PM

Scroll for updates… Photoshop: Reader Rachael in Ky Here’s your open thread for the ABC News/White House Obamacare Show, which broadcasts at 10pm Eastern. No John Stossel, it appears, but the ABC News press relations office just sent out word that a few skeptical doctors did put President Obama on the spot. Celebrate diversity! EXCLUSIVE: […]

The dignity of Jenny vs. the jerkitude of Mark

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 24, 2009 06:49 PM

Unlike other self-esteem-lacking wives of cheaters, Jenny Sanford shows real courage, class, and dignity in her statement to the press — and in her decision NOT to stand by her adulterous husband at his public confession. Godspeed, Mrs. Sanford. Via McClatchy: I would like to start by saying I love my husband and I believe […]


By Michelle Malkin  •  June 24, 2009 02:54 PM

It’s the only fitting word for a man who abandons his wife and four sons on Father’s Day weekend to indulge his “overdrive” on an Argentinian fling. Mark Sanford: Bastard. *** If you missed Sanford’s rambling, surreal disaster of a press conference, consider yourself lucky. He had a hell of a lot more passion and […]

Two disappearing acts, one tabloid circus

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 24, 2009 10:59 AM

(See update on Sanford fiasco here…) So, South Carolina GOP Gov. Mark Sanford disappeared and the story of where the hell he has been keeps changing. Yes, it’s weird. Disturbingly weird that he would vanish on Father’s Day weekend and leave his wife and four sons in the dark. It’s weird and creepy and something’s […]

Document drop: The story behind the "ACORN changed its name" story

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 24, 2009 05:06 AM

There is some confusion over the story about ACORN “changing its name” that needs to be cleared up and given context. Getting it right is important. I provided a link to the piece by Kevin Mooney at the Examiner on Monday in my post focusing on Project Vote/ACORN’s lawsuit against whistleblower Anita Moncrief. The link […]

Who’s funding the Obamacare Astroturf campaign?

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 24, 2009 01:40 AM

My syndicated column today investigates the deep pockets behind the “grass-roots” campaign for Obamacare. Chicago crony/White House senior adviser David Axelrod is, of course, the master of astroturfing. So it certainly comes as no surprise that left-wing puppetmasters are behind the government health care takeover lobby. But an informed citizenry needs to know the nitty […]

Alert: Senate to vote on radical Koh nomination

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2009 11:08 PM

The Right’s best legal minds have been exposing radical leftist Stuart Koh, President Obama’s State Department legal adviser nominee, for months. On Wednesday morning, the Senate votes. From the folks at No Koh: Harold Koh has been nominated to be the State Department Legal Adviser, a position that would make him the voice of the […]

Bogus cap-and-trade statistic of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2009 02:51 PM

Conn Carroll does the math: Most problematic is their complete omission of economic damage from restricting energy use. Footnote three on page four reads, “The resource cost does not indicate the potential decrease in gross domestic product (GDP) that could result from the cap. The reduction in GDP would also include indirect general equilibrium effects, […]

Obama hand-holds Huffington Post blogger, snaps at dissident reporters

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2009 01:28 PM

I noted on Twitter and in my live-blog of Obama’s press conference that the president called on/coached HuffPo’s Nico Pitney in an obvious, pre-planned question on Iranians communicating through social media and the Internet. The question itself was unobjectionable and Obama’s response was so bland and rambling I don’t remember it. But what was noteworthy […]

Obama-come-lately on Iran; O's obligatory press conference

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2009 11:43 AM

At around 12:30pm Eastern, Barack Obama will put down his ice cream cone and boldly condemn repression in Iran. Why now? Andrew Malcolm explains the timing: You don’t need to be a basketball-loving president of the United States to know that if you’re trying to block opponents’ shots in your end, you sure aren’t increasing […]

Nice "work" if you can get it

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2009 10:48 AM

Two items to raise the blood pressure of law-abiding, hard-working Americans: 1) From the L.A. Times: “San Francisco D.A.’s program trained illegal immigrants for jobs they couldn’t legally hold.” As she runs for state attorney general, prosecutor Kamala Harris faces questions over a program that trained illegal immigrant drug felons for jobs, kept them out […]
