Galactic Appeasement: UN to Appoint First Ambassador to Space Aliens

By Doug Powers  •  September 26, 2010 10:56 AM

**Written by Doug Powers There’s no better way to ensure that visitors from an advanced civilization elsewhere in the universe want to vaporize the Earth immediately than by making them sit through a United Nations meeting as soon as they get here. To that end, the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs will choose […]

NYT Shocker: John Boehner’s Top Aide Not Well Known Like Other Top Aides

By Doug Powers  •  September 26, 2010 07:31 AM

**Written by Doug Powers I’m starting to think that going after John Boehner might not be going very well. The “Boehner smokes, golfs, smokes some more, has a tan and takes **loads of money from lobbyists” approach may have run its course, so now the New York Times has decided to take on Boehner’s staff.

Nothing Says ‘Thanks for Visiting the US’ Like Pickled Okra

By Doug Powers  •  September 25, 2010 02:47 PM

**Written by Doug Powers As the world leaders were back in the City scheming to divvy up money that doesn’t belong to them, the spouses hung around with FLOTUS and received a basket that I’m predicting will come to be known as “the re-gifting heard ’round the world”: First lady Michelle Obama underscored her healthy […]

The Delphi disaster: Judge refuses to dismiss non-union pensioners’ charges

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2010 04:58 PM

Good news today for the Delphi salaried retirees who were screwed over by Team Obama’s auto task force and the UAW. As I reported Wednesday, the Delphi white-collar workers were in court today for a hearing on their federal lawsuit challenging the backroom deals that led to massively slashed pension benefits for non-union workers while […]

Had An Affair With John Boehner? Please Call 1-866-NYT-DEMS

By Doug Powers  •  September 24, 2010 04:09 PM

**Written by Doug Powers The New York Times’ first hit piece on John Boehner didn’t exactly tip the scales in the Democrats favor, so maybe the second one will: Liberal media outlets are trying to smear the highest-ranking Republican in the House just weeks before the midterm elections with a deal-breaking scandal before he has […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2010 11:31 AM

How privileged Democrats pay for their houses by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2010 Like millions of Americans, Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell has had trouble covering her mortgage and other bills over the years.

Clown Colbert’s Democrat enablers make mockery of immigration policy; Rep. Steve King brings reality to hijacked hearing; Update: FIASCO! Dems fight over Colbert

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2010 09:26 AM

Scroll for updates…Dems have shot themselves in the party foot All aboard the clown car! Today on Capitol Hill, left-wing comedian Stephen Colbert will appear “in character” before a House subcommittee on immigration. No, he has no expertise. But he has an agenda: To mock Americans who support strict enforcement of our laws by implying […]

Culture of corruption: New Black Panther Party voter intimidation hearing live at 10am Friday; Updated: “Culture of hostility” at Holder DOJ

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 10:46 PM

Corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama Department of Social Justice are on the hot seat tomorrow over the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case shenanigans. Long overdue. To recap: I told you on Monday about the latest lies and obstructionism by the DO(S)J revealed in logs obtained through Judicial Watch’s Freedom of […]

Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers denied emeritus status

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 10:06 PM

Whaddya know. Academia did something right and honorable for once. Denied: The University of Illinois on Thursday denied 1960s radical William Ayers emeritus faculty status after trustees Chairman Christopher Kennedy noted Ayers dedicated a book to, among others, the man who killed Kennedy’s father, Robert F. Kennedy. All nine voting trustees either opposed granting Ayers, […]

Outraged Academic of the Day: Anti-Islamic Propaganda at Football Games Must End!

By Doug Powers  •  September 23, 2010 06:58 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Outrageous outrage in the Daily Illini, courtesy of one David Green, Academic Professional: The vast majority of 9/11 observances in this country cannot be seen as politically neutral events. Implicit in their nature are the notions that lives lost at the World Trade Center are more valuable than lives lost in […]

A-jad spews 9/11 Trutherism to U.N.; U.S. delegation walks out

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 04:28 PM

Via Mediaite and RCP, the U.S. delegation walked out on Ahmadinejad’s address to the U.N. Assembly in New York this afternoon after he pushed the 9/11 Truther button: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke to the United Nations General Assembly this afternoon, sharing some rather provocative rhetoric over the United States worst terrorist attack in history.

So That’s Why Bono Calls it the ONE Foundation

By Doug Powers  •  September 23, 2010 02:57 PM

**Written by Doug Powers All this time I thought that maybe ONE was an acronym or something, but it looks like the Bono’s organization is so named because just one percent of the money raised makes it to its promoted destination: Bono’s anti-poverty foundation ONE is under pressure to explain its lavish salaries after it […]

The Orwellian DISCLOSE Act vote; Update: GOP holds the line, Harry Reid foiled again

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 02:22 PM

Thanks to all of you who helped with Operation Buck Up Maine and phoned Sens. Snowe and Collins to hold the line against the special interest, speech-squelching DISCLOSE Act. The Senate is now voting on the do-over cloture motion. (It failed to muster 60 votes in July. Cloture vote 57-41.) GOP Leader McConnell assailed the […]

ACORN Watch: New HUD IG report details counseling grant scams

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 01:54 PM

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti My reporting on ACORN’s housing counseling grant rip-offs go back to April 2008, when I spotlighted the left-wing mortgage counseling racket. As bad as the ACORN/Obama alliance is, I’ve pointed out several times that this mess festered under the Bush administration and a GOP ruling majority. Now, GOP Rep. Daryl Issa […]

DREAM Act won’t die

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 10:53 AM

The illegal alien student bailout is alive and kicking, despite the grass-roots immigration enforcement backlash that helped kill Harry Reid’s social justice-laden defense authorization bill earlier this week. According to @Senatus: “The DREAM Act has been procedurally added to the legislative calendar as a stand-alone bill (S. 3827).” Don’t forget: A critical number of Soros/open-borders […]

How about this pledge: “I will not swallow any more crap sandwiches”

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 09:24 AM

Making pledges is easy. Keeping them? Not so much. Just ask Mr. Hope and Change. The new GOP pledge is fine as far as it goes — especially the upfront acknowledgment that government’s powers derive from the consent of the governed, not from the penumbras emanating from the fingertips of all President Obama’s czars. But […]

KFC Buys Ad Space on College Girls Rumps; NOW Offended — Of Course

By Doug Powers  •  September 22, 2010 06:54 PM

**Written by Doug Powers KFC is “creating” more jobs than the Obama administration has all year, and I’m even willing to bet KFC has Team O beaten in the “lives touched” category as a result of this ad campaign: Women on college campuses are being paid $500 each to hand out coupons while wearing fitted […]

Another head-banging-against-the-wall moment: Senate GOP protects Evita Murkowski

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2010 03:57 PM

Photoshop credit: Slublog Yesterday, GOP Sen. John Cornyn said it was “pretty clear” that sore loser Sen. Lisa “Evita” Murkowski would lose her energy post: “Senator Murkowski has submitted her resignation by share of the Congress last Friday. There’s also an issue as to whether or not its appropriate for her under the circumstances to […]

Ohio Democrat Party chair to Tea Party activists: “F*ckers”

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2010 12:12 PM

Ohio Democrat Party chairman Chris Redfern says out loud how all his cohorts really feel about the grass-roots Tea Party movement. Here he is cursing activists who reject the notion that federally-subsidized health care is a right. Click to watch (language alert): Joe “Big F*cking Deal” Biden was just in Ohio to campaign for the […]

Once more: Stop the special-interest, speech-squelching DISCLOSE Act

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2010 11:21 AM

They won’t take no for an answer. So we have to give them both barrels again. On July 27, the Senate voted down the Democrats’ union-friendly, loophole-ridden, Orwellian-titled DISCLOSE Act. The bogus campaign finance reform bill was, as Sen. Mitch McConnell put it, a “transparent attempt to rig fall elections” that was written “behind closed […]

Obama’s rationing czar cuts and runs

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2010 10:06 AM

Our good friend and former Hot Air TV correspondent Jason Mattera, now editor-in-chief at Human Events, tried to ask White House recess appointee/Medicare-Medicaid chief Donald Berwick a few questions about his views. This is what public accountability in the age of Obama looks like: Pretty good Road Runner imitation there, Dr. Berwick!
