Democrat Rep. Corrine Brown gets a taste of her own sandbagging medicine

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 24, 2010 10:32 AM

You’ll love this. Remember back in August 2008, when Democrat Rep. Corrine Brown commanded Jacksonville FL city officials to deliver sandbags to her home to protect her from rising floodwaters caused by Tropical Storm Fay? I blogged about the Jacksonville Times-Union story at the time: U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown’s office asked Mayor John Peyton’s chief […]

The apple runs away from the tree: Nevada gubernatorial candidate Rory Reid (D) is on the air with his first campaign ad and it’s missing one thing: his last name. Reid, the son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), doesn’t say his name at any point during the ad, but it prominently features his […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2010 10:07 AM

NumbersUSA posted a letter on Monday from GOP Sen. Grassley and seven other Republican Senators challenging the White House on rumors of illegal alien-amnesty-by-executive order. The gist of it: We understand that there’s a push for your Administration to develop a plan to unilaterally extend either deferred action or parole to millions of illegal aliens […]

Ken Salazar gets an ass-kicking. Over to you, Capitol Hill. 6/24 update: Judge refuses White House drilling ban stay request; judge gets death threat

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2010 02:41 AM

Scroll for updates… Git along, little dogie… My syndicated column follows up on federal judge Martin Feldman’s decision yesterday overturning the Obama drilling moratorium.

The McChrystal mess; Update: Gibbs says Obama hasn’t talked with the general (nothing new there!); WH questions maturity, judgment

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 22, 2010 01:09 PM

No matter how right or wrong I think Gen. McChrystal may be (praise here, criticism here), I think we can all agree that in a time of war, the last place a military commander should be blabbing is an anti-war pop culture rag that specializes in slime. Sharia law remains a looming threat against Western […]

Hoyer: No budget resolution this year, tax hikes on the way

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 22, 2010 12:27 PM

House Democrat Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced this morning that the ruling majority will not pass a budget resolution this year. And, hell, why not? The White House budget director thinks his job’s done. Why bother? House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday his party will not approve a traditional budget that sets spending guidelines […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 22, 2010 09:21 AM

Every town, every state that rises up against immigration chaos and takes enforcement into its own hands must be punished, if the open-borders lobby and White House have their way. Fremont, Nebraska, here they come: This small Nebraska meatpacking town has joined Arizona at the […]

He’ll depart from the Beltway with a beautiful ABC News reporter on his arm — and an ever-swelling ocean of debt at his feet. Mission accomplished!

Day of Prayer for the Gulf, and Father’s Day Wishes

By Doug Powers  •  June 20, 2010 11:40 AM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers So far, in order to end the catastrophe in the Gulf, we’ve tried yacht races, seemingly endless golf (“did you plug the hole on the 17th, daddy?”), baseball games, cute catch-phrases, McCartney concerts, looking for an ass to kick, delaying offers of assistance from other countries, idling skimmers for life […]

Obama Porkway: Road Built With Stimulus Money Will Bear President’s Name

By Doug Powers  •  June 19, 2010 11:26 AM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers The Mayor of Hartford, Connecticut faces a maximum of 60 years in prison after his conviction today.

By Doug Powers  •  June 17, 2010 09:23 PM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers This is unbelievable, in a governmentally believable kind of way.
