The return of Adnan Shukrijumah

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 30, 2010 05:53 PM

Adnan Shukrijumah. Does the name ring a bell? It should if you have been a regular reader of this blog since its inception in 2004. In August 2004, I reported on the FBI search for the high-profile fugitive and al Qaeda operative billed as the “next Mohammed Atta.” There’s been a $5 million bounty on […]

Ohio Dems tried to illegally obtain CCW permit holders’ info to launch anti-gun campaign Updated

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 30, 2010 03:10 PM

Liberals in Ohio have quite a track snooping on private citizens. Democrat state officials abused their access and plundered through Joe the Plumber’s records. And now, the Ohio Democrat Party has been caught trying to illegally obtain info on concealed carry permit holders in the Buckeye State in order to bombard them with anti-gun propaganda. […]

Video: Baucus openly questions Democrat grandstanding on BP; “I just hope…we know what the heck it is we’re doing”

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 30, 2010 02:31 PM

A moment of candor from Democrat Sen. Max Baucus today at the Senate EPW Committee hearing on the Boxer-Menendez oil spill liability amendments. His comments are directed at grandstanding committee chairwoman Sen. Barbara Boxer, sitting next to him. His soliloquy on the Dems’ rush to pass legislation to send a Big Oil-bashing message comes in […]

Here comes the open-borders mob again

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 30, 2010 11:27 AM

Gearing up for President Obama’s illegal alien shamnesty speech tomorrow, the open-borders lobby is starting in again with demonstrations across the country. Here’s the far Left L.A. Indymedia crowd crowing about a recent sit-in at GOP Rep. David Dreier’s office: SAN DIMAS, California – About thirty constituents, immigrant rights activists, students, and community members entered […]

Obama’s Coffee House Loophole

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 30, 2010 03:54 AM

The Obama vampires strike again. My latest column focuses on the White House evasion of public disclosure rules through off-site lobbyist meetings at D.C. coffee houses. But first, here are some handy Team Obama transparency-sabotaging reminders for you drawing on Culture of Corruption and the mountain of previous blog posts here that have documented Team […]

Legal Progressive Doesn’t Know Meaning of Term ‘Legal Progressive’

By Doug Powers  •  June 29, 2010 03:54 PM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers Oh, of course she does, but how quickly even those with the highest formal educations can suddenly act like they were raised by wolves: Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan on Tuesday fought off Republicans who were trying hard to paint her as a liberal activist, saying she’d be a fair, […]

Hasn’t the SEIU wasted enough of its members’ money?

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 29, 2010 11:23 AM

I’ve gotten several enraged e-mails from rank-and-file SEIU members who have been leaned on by their leaders to campaign against Arizona’s immigration enforcement law. From reader A.: I am a member of SEIU because, as an employee of Los Angeles County I have to be, and today I received an email from their office detailing […]

Good news, bad news for gun rights

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 28, 2010 01:31 PM

First, the good news: The Supreme Court affirmed the Heller decision on the individual right to bear arms and essentially and effectively struck down the city of Chicago’s sweeping gun ban: The Supreme Court ruled for the first time Monday that the Second Amendment provides all Americans a fundamental right to bear arms, a long-sought […]

Another outrageous Obama DHS appointment

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 28, 2010 11:24 AM

Here we go again. I’ve long reported on the danger of illegal alien sanctuary city policies embraced by woefully misguided (at best) and criminally reckless public officials seeking to appease the open borders lobby. One of the countless casualties of this deadly pandering was Houston PD officer Rodney Johnson, who shot and killed during a […]

SCOTUS theater: Kagan kabuki

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 28, 2010 04:12 AM

Places, places everyone. Today, the curtain officially opens on the Senate “battle” over Obama Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. “Battle” gets ghost quotes because all the poohbahs on Capitol Hill are already treating her confirmation as a “foregone conclusion.” Beltway Republicans will put up just enough of a fight to placate grass-roots conservative activists on […]

Robert Byrd ‘Seriously Ill': A Brief Discussion About W. Virginia Senate Seat Rules; Update: Byrd Dies

By Doug Powers  •  June 27, 2010 09:37 PM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers You may have heard today that West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd has been hospitalized and is described as “seriously ill.” Byrd isn’t up for re-election until 2012, but because the 2010 and 2012 elections will probably carry even more weight than usual as to the ultimate direction of the country, […]

Obama Ditches Press Corps (See Also: Corpse) Once Again

By Doug Powers  •  June 27, 2010 09:16 AM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers Now that they’re being shunned fairly regularly, at some point, will the majority of the mainstream media ever regret doing Obama’s bidding-by-not-digging and helping carry him into the White House on their shoulders? I didn’t think so: Holed up with seven other global leaders in the woods of Muskoka, Canada, […]

Cyber Insecurity: ‘Internet Kill Switch’ Bill Moves On

By Doug Powers  •  June 26, 2010 03:17 PM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers Hey, why shouldn’t people who couldn’t even keep the Organizing for America website and Barack Obama’s own Twitter account from being hacked be in charge of Internet security? I seriously doubt that anybody in government would be capable of coming up with a way to shut down Al Gore’s beloved […]

It’s About Time the Government Created an Agency to Look Out For Us!

By Doug Powers  •  June 25, 2010 03:31 PM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers When announcing the passage of the Dodd/Frank “financial reform” bill — a fix authored by the same people who helped get the financial system majorly FUBAR in the first place — President Obama really eased my fears when he said this: We’ll put in place the toughest consumer financial protections […]

The U.S. Department of Illegal Alien Labor
