Dem Congressman: Pelosi Might ‘Get Sick and Die’

By Doug Powers  •  August 26, 2010 01:24 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Heading into November, it sounds like some Democrats have grown tired of running from the politically toxic Nancy Pelosi and have instead decided that the best strategy is to start coughing on her a lot to see what happens. From Greg Sargent at the Washington Post: Yesterday I noted here that […]

The fishermen’s flotilla: Showdown at Martha’s Vineyard

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 26, 2010 10:32 AM

Continuing my coverage of the revolt against the White House ocean grab, here’s the latest on today’s fishermen’s protest flotilla gathering at Martha’s Vineyard while President Obama plays Scrabble and golf with his Chicago cronies. Takeaway quote from this local news report from one of the fishermen outraged at the administration’s junk science-based catch limits: […]

Obama jobs death toll watch: More health care layoffs

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 26, 2010 09:32 AM

Grim reaper photoshop credit: Manly Rash I said yesterday in my Beltway Chainsaw Massacre column that the GOP needs to track the Obama jobs death toll and tell the victims’ stories far and wide. But there’s no need to wait for the GOP. I’ll keep doing it right here. The first story of the day […]

Charlie Rangel Gets Even With President Obama

By Doug Powers  •  August 26, 2010 09:06 AM

**Written by Doug Powers Okay, pretend you’re a longtime member of a congress that consistently ranks lower than “genital herpes” in the favorability ratings, and you’re taking heat for charges of corruption. The president has urged you to end your career with dignity and resign. You’re not happy about that at all. What’s the best […]

If you’ve been trying to reach me by e-mail…

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 26, 2010 12:20 AM

Believe it or not, I maxed out on my 80 GB gmail account last night. It took a full day for the added storage to kick in, and it looks like all the e-mail I received over the past 24 hours bounced back and into oblivion. Please try and re-send if you really need to […]

DNC’s Alaska amnesia

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 25, 2010 03:56 PM

Snort-worthy video of the day via the NSRC: “DNC Spokesperson Doesn’t Know Alaskan Dem Candidate’s Name.” Via WaPo: His name is Scott McAdams, and he stands a remote chance of beating Miller or current Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski in November. As The Post’s Chris Cillizza put it in an online live chat late Wednesday morning: […]

Breaking News: Obamas Having a Great Time on Vacation

By Doug Powers  •  August 25, 2010 03:24 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Is it just me, or is ABC’s Jake Tapper being a little sarcastic? In Tapper’s “breaking news” story, he writes about yet another tightly guarded secret. On Monday, the manager of an ice cream shop went into “I could tell you but then I’d have to kill you” mode when asked […]

Not again: Another act of Democrat vandalism falsely blamed on Tea Party

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 25, 2010 12:54 PM

Remember my handy March 2010 guide? Flashback: How the Left fakes the hate: A primer. Remember this case? Flashback: In late August 2009, as lawmakers faced citizen revolts at health care town halls nationwide, the Colorado Democratic Party decried a vandalism attack at its Denver headquarters. A hammer-wielding thug smashed 11 windows and caused $11,000 […]

Big Labor’s massive new $88 million war chest + Marxist get-out-the-vote alliance

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 25, 2010 10:32 AM

When SEIU president Andy Stern resigned in April, I noted the jockeying for power between the AFL-CIO and SEIU. I asked: Gulp: Are we about to see a re-merger of SEIU and AFL-CIO into a new 21st-century Big Labor Frankenstein? Question: Are we looking at the death throes of forced unionism — or its resurrection? […]

Obama’s Beltway Chainsaw Massacre

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 25, 2010 09:15 AM

Building on my continuing War on the West/War on Jobs series, today’s column initiates an Obama jobs death toll. The social justice Left has always used Alinskyite story-telling to get its way. Time for the Right to better tell the stories of the forgotten victims of the Obama job-killing machine. Regarding the new CBO report […]

Big Government Huckster John McCain’s bitter, clingy $21 million primary fight; Update: Election night results; Meghan McCain taunts Hayworth

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 24, 2010 06:35 PM

Scroll for multi-state primary election results… I have watched and listened to many establishment Republicans and TV talking heads deride GOP Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth as a “clown,” “charlatan,” and a “huckster.” I have watched and listened to many purported “Tea Party” spokespeople and limited-government lobbyists defend entrenched GOP Senate incumbent John McCain as a […]

Fishermen against Obama job destruction

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 24, 2010 12:46 PM

I spotlighted the neon green radical-led White House ocean grab last week that is undermining the health of the fishing industry. On Thursday, a fleet of fishermen will gather at Martha’s Vineyard to protest Obama’s destructive eco-policies. It’s just one more wave of the citizen backlash by thousands of victims of the White House war […]

Tennessee Football Coach Says He Was Fired For Recording Anti-Obama Song

By Doug Powers  •  August 24, 2010 11:19 AM

**Written by Doug Powers “PC end-around on two. Ready, break!” A Tennessee middle school football coach is looking to the future after his termination for alleged political incorrectness. Twenty-six-year-old Bryan Glover is a Christian who co-wrote a song called “When You’re Holding a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail,” which takes a dig at the […]

Boehner: Stop the Obama job-killing machine; Update: Obama administration response – Hey, let’s talk about Shirley Sherrod again!

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 24, 2010 08:34 AM

Scroll for updates… House GOP Leader John Boehner is putting jobs and the Obama economic team on the front-burner today with a major speech at the City Club of Cleveland. Give ’em both barrels.

Russell Simmons can’t read

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 23, 2010 05:03 PM

I suppose I should be flattered that music industry mogul Russell Simmons has devoted an entire essay attacking me over the Ground Zero mosque and urging his Twitter followers to spread it around. The problem is, er, I didn’t write the excellent post spotlighting Simmons’ embarrassing 1993 World Trade Center bombing error last week. Guest-blogger […]

John Ensign plays the victim card for cash

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 23, 2010 03:18 PM

Emetic of the day: Nevada Republican Sen. John Ensign clinging to his seat, begging donors to fatten up his anemic legal defense fund, and blaming liberals for all his self-inflicted problems. Pathetic: Sen. John Ensign is asking supporters for donations to pay lawyers defending him in ongoing ethics investigations, insisting he is “absolutely” innocent of […]

Left-wing campus embraces unapologetic, murdering peacenik bomber

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 23, 2010 11:06 AM

Nope, not Bill Ayers. Meet Karl Armstrong. Via the Wisconsin State Journal (hat tip-reader Gregor): The bombing of Sterling Hall on the UW-Madison campus by anti-war radicals in the early morning hours of Aug. 24, 1970 has a peculiar hold on Madison even 40 years later, in part because of the many lives that were […]
