Memorial Day Salute

By Doug Powers  •  May 31, 2010 08:11 AM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers The word “sacrifice” is often used in a wildly exaggerated fashion (for some of us, it’s a “sacrifice” to lose cable for a day), but those who make very real and sometimes ultimate sacrifices are some of the reasons that the rest of us are in the enviable position of […]

Does a US Marine in Afghanistan Really Have a Sarah Palin Tattoo on His Butt? You Bet’cha!

By Doug Powers  •  May 30, 2010 03:55 PM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers We spend Memorial Day weekend honoring our heroes past and present, but I thought an “on the lighter side” story would be appropriate, provided it featured one of those heroes. Via HotAirPundit, here’s one Marine who’s pretty impressed with “the hottest cougar in the Republican Party”: So it is, however. […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 30, 2010 12:16 AM

From reader S., a YouTube Memorial Day video tribute set to “Arlington,” by Trace Adkins: *** President Obama, as you know, is enjoying basketball and barbecue this Memorial Day weekend in Chicago.

Taps Day is done, gone the sun, From the hills, from the lake, From the skies. All is well, safely rest, God is nigh. Go to sleep, peaceful sleep, May the soldier or sailor, God keep. On the land or the deep, Safe in sleep. Love, good night, Must thou go, When the day, And […]

Those Folks at the Daily Caller Sure Have a Good Sense of Humor

By Doug Powers  •  May 29, 2010 09:47 AM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers Tis the season for giving instead of receiving… for a change: The problem for Bill and the Obama administration is that “job offer” might have saved its clothes in a closet and told a friend about it. The White House is now hoping everybody believes that they were unaware Sestak […]

Another Obama White House stonewall

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 28, 2010 01:00 PM

Today, it’s the barriers around the bogus Financial Crisis Commission. The Washington Examiner editorial board reports: When Congress created the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission in 2009, it tasked the group with digging into the origins of the global economic meltdown that began in 2008. The 10-member commission is scheduled to issue a report in December […]

By Doug Powers  •  May 28, 2010 12:02 PM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers Bill Clinton met with President Obama yesterday — reportedly to discuss how to handle damage control from the oil spill in the Gulf — but it’s a good guess that a heaping helping of “getting our stories straight” was the featured item on the lunch menu: President Obama’s chief of […]

Carville, Obama and a Tale of Two Daddys

By Doug Powers  •  May 27, 2010 04:23 PM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers James Carville yesterday on CNN: “This president needs to tell BP: ‘I’m ya daddy! I’m in charge!’” Then today at President Obama’s press conference, with what is sure to be a t-shirt slogan for years to come: “Did you plug the hole yet, daddy?” Coincidence? I think not. Obama had […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 27, 2010 01:53 PM

After nearly an hour, FNC’s Major Garrett got the last question and finally squeezed in a direct question to President Obama about what the administration did or did not do with Democrat Rep. Joe Sestak. Obama: “There will be an official answer from our administration…coming out shortly…in weeks or months.” More: “I can assure the […]

The White House/New Black Panther Party stonewall

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 27, 2010 10:36 AM

The Sestak scandal is just one piece of the Democratic culture of corruption puzzle — and the White House denials are just more thick pieces of the Great Stone Wall of Obama. Case in point: I’ve covered DOJ/AG Eric Holder’s obstructionism in the New Black Panther Party case since June 2009. The indefatigable Judicial Watch […]

Todd Palin for border czar!

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 27, 2010 08:30 AM

You’ve no doubt read about the Palin family’s snoopy new neighbor, author Joe McGinniss, who has rented a house 15 feet from the Palins’ backyard to conduct binocular-aided research for his Random House book. I’ll share more thoughts later on the media ethics issues and media double standards involved. For his part, Todd Palin wasted […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 26, 2010 10:28 AM

Last night, a community board in Manhattan approved a mosque/sharia-compliant “party space” at Ground Zero, two blocks from where the 9/11 hijackers mass-murdered thousands and brought down the World Trade Center. Enraged 9/11 families protested the move and spoke truth to power: After four hours of public debate, members of Community Board 1 finally voted […]

Look who’s behind the White House/Sestak stonewall

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 26, 2010 09:25 AM

My column today focuses on the White House lawyer behind the Sestak stonewall: Bob Bauer — a familiar figure if you’ve been reading this blog closely. He’s the hubby of former White House Fox-basher-in-chief Anita Dunn and a veteran Democrat legal fixer. In related news, here’s a new video contrasting Sestak’s accusations with Team Obama’s […]

Obama’s border Kabuki: Don’t believe the hype; Update: Meddling Mexico dictates how U.S. should use its National Guard

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 25, 2010 03:34 PM

Scroll for updates… Photoshop credit: Applecross Media and Big Fur Hat The most glaring sign that President Obama’s announcement of border funding and National Guard troops is one big, phony charade?
