Sunday open thread

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 31, 2010 10:29 AM

Busy with family and friends. Talk amongst yourselves. *** Via 30 pcs of silver and Feebie, longtime commenter A.J. Montana passed away last week of an apparent heart attack. His loyal readership and participation were much appreciated. Condolences to his family and R.I.P.

Education Secretary Duncan’s new reform proposal: Hurricanes!

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2010 11:03 AM

File under: Can you imagine if a Republican Education Secretary said this? Via the Washington Post, Education Secretary Arne Duncan makes a clumsy attempt at pointing out that there was an educational silver lining to the catastrophic hurricane that devastated New Orleans. Education Secretary Arne Duncan called Hurricane Katrina “the best thing that happened to […]

Transparency and openness, finally: The GOP & Obama Q&A show

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2010 01:21 PM

It’s our own version of Britain’s Prime Minister’s questions and it’s been happening for nearly an hour live. Hurry and tune in now on C-SPAN online if you aren’t near a TV. Yes, Obama has shown some of his finger-wagging tendencies, ignored GOP Rep. Tom Price’s question, complained that health care critics likened Demcare to […]

Thank you, Tim Tebow

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2010 01:00 PM

Thank you, Tim Tebow and family, for exposing the appalling intolerance of the feminist Left and the abortion peddlers. Thank you, for standing up and speaking out for what you believe in. And thank you, Focus on the Family, for spreading the Tebow family’s message: Focus on the Family will broadcast the first Super Bowl […]

California lawmakers pass single-payer…as state heads towards bankruptcy again

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2010 12:34 PM

I noted the California Senate Appropriations Committee’s plans last week to push a single-payer program through the legislature. Showing their impeccable timing, the progressives approved the bill in the Senate yesterday at a cost of $200 billion a year…just as the state controller announced that California is set to run out of cash again in […]

Cirque du Jihad: Coming to a federal court near you?

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2010 03:08 AM

My syndicated column today expands on Tuesday’s blog post about the Aafia Siddiqui terror trial debacle in New York City (see here for background/links) and what it portends for the future. Yes, I call it Cirque du Jihad. The White House and DOJ are now scrambling to cook up contingency plans for their jihadi show […]

Retreat: White House plays jihadi musical chairs

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2010 09:37 PM

Photo credit: Urban Infidel. President Obama’s rhetoric meets reality, again. After pushing hard to try Gitmo detainees in New York City, the White House has now ordered the Justice Department to try and find other venues. They are still insisting on shipping suspected jihadis to federal courts on U.S. soil. It’s going to be a […]

Reverse Midas: Obama to campaign for beleaguered Sen. Bennet in Colorado

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2010 07:20 PM

Oh, goody. The man whose in-state appearances helped doom Democrats Jon Corzine in New Jersey, Creigh Deeds in Virginia, and Martha Coakley in Massachusetts is now scheduled to campaign for flailing Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet here in Colorado. President Obama will bring his reverse Midas Touch to the mountain West next month, according to the […]

SEIU thug-in-chief: Sorry for calling Democrat Senators “terrorists;” Update: UAW leader to members: “Shut the ^*%& up!”

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2010 03:28 PM

Oops. The head of the Purple Shirted Army got carried away with his rhetoric — likening his political opponents to terrorists. When his underlings use such rhetoric against Tea Party activists — as SEIU goon Dennis Rivera did in a phone conference with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius last summer — there’s no problem, of course.
