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 […]

**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 […]
