FLOTUS: Chicago needs Olympics because American kids are fat; Plus: The Jarrett whitewash

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2009 10:16 PM

Michelle Obama wants you to know that the all-out Chicago Olympics bid is not for The Cronies. It’s for…The Children! Especially, says Mrs. O, the fat children: We need all of our children to be exposed to the Olympic ideals that athletes from around the world represent, particularly this time in our nation’s history, where […]

Safe Schools czar now “regrets” failure to report child predator

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2009 04:26 PM

I mentioned Safe School czar Kevin Jennings in my column last week on Obama’s three Rs – rappin’, revolution, and radicalism last week. Dr. Warren Throckmorton has done yeomen’s work unearthing Jennings’ evolving tales regarding his failure as a young gay teacher to protect a 15-year old student from a homosexual child predator. In response […]

Call. Them. Out: Senate Finance Committee Democrats rejected a proposed a requirement that immigrants prove their identity with photo identification when signing up for federal healthcare programs.

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2009 10:37 AM

Expensive eco-hysterics take to the Senate floor today. Democrat Sens. Barbara Boxer and John Kerry are set to unveil their “climate change” plan this morning. The Institute for Energy Research has posted the two advance drafts of the bill and provides helpful analysis. Except, of course, for the parts where Boxer and Kerry have inserted […]

“Undocumented” ID thief turns in all his fake papers, asks for ticket home

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2009 09:47 AM

Well, here’s a trend I hope catches on (oh, and so much for being “undocumented,” eh?): A Framingham man who told police he can’t afford to return to his native Guatemala, turned himself in Saturday on identity theft charges so he could eventually be deported, police said. Carlos F. Boc, 29, told officers he had […]

The People’s Republic of Berkeley signs on to U.N. treaties

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2009 06:02 AM

Maybe they’ll get their own seat on the U.N. Security Council now: Berkeley became the first city in the United States, and possibly the world, to agree to international human rights treaties on Tuesday night, after the City Council approved a measure usually reserved for countries. After a brief but spirited debate, the City Council […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2009 11:52 AM

Looks like shark-jumping season at the Washington Post. The PR team has just launched a contest for “America’s Next Great Pundit.” Really. Just arrived in my e-mailbox: Aspiring pundits across the country have the chance to be “America’s Next Great Pundit” by entering The Washington Post’s political columnist competition. Starting today The Washington Post opinions […]

Creepy O-cult video of the day: “Deliver us, Obama!” Updated

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2009 11:00 AM

I didn’t think you could top those schoolchildren substituting Obama for Jesus in their public school praise hymn. Now, thanks to Naked Emperor News and Breitbart TV, we have video of community organizers led by the “Gamaliel Foundation” praying to The One as they lobby for “social justice” and health care for all. “HEAR OUR […]

Call your reps: No on Obamacare funds for abortion

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2009 10:28 AM

President Obama says it’s a “fabrication” and “distraction” to assert that the Democrats’ health care takeover bills subsidize abortion. Well, not to distract you, but the NYT reports today: Representative Bart Stupak, a Democratic opponent of abortion, is pressing for a ban on health care subsidies for abortions. Abortion opponents in both the House and […]

Patterico reported over the weekend that lecherous child predator/director Roman Polanski’s Washington Post defender Anne Applebaum failed to mention in her latest pro-Polanski blog post that her husband is a Polish politician actively lobbying for Polanski’s freedom.

No cheers for left-wing collaborators at Bank of America

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2009 09:47 PM

Bank of America has been caving in to left-wing special interests for years. The financial giant teamed up with the open-borders lobby to offer illegal alien home loans. It forked over payoffs to self-declared bank terrorist outfit NACA (the taxpayer-subsidized Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America). BoA also capitulated to a Jesse Jackson shakedown. And then, […]

Sarah Palin: “Going Rogue”

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2009 05:52 PM

The AP reports that Sarah Palin’s memoir will be published on Nov. 17. The title is “Going Rogue” — an allusion to the in-fighting between Team Sarah and the McCainiancs that broke out in the last weeks of the campaign. Should be quite a compelling read.

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2009 02:37 PM

At the White House briefing today, spokesman Robert Gibbs touted the “tangible economic benefits” of the Obamas’ Chicago Crony Olympics bid. Well, there would certainly be “tangible economic benefits” for certain Chicago crony developers — like Michael Scott, Jr. And fellow business crony Gerald Fogelson. The Chicago Tribune reported last week: A key member of […]

“Once in 70 days”

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2009 11:09 AM

That’s how many times President Obama has talked to General Stanley McChrystal. Obama is for “engagement” and “dialogue” with everyone else in the world except his own military commanders.
