By Doug Powers  •  February 28, 2011 04:32 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Rest assured, Mike Huckabee will aggressively defend this practice ASAP. From J.P. Freire at the Washington Examiner: With a schedule as hectic as President Obama’s it must be hard to stick to a training regimen without help — but why does he insist on having his old trainer fly out from […]

Union civility: Fox-bashing edition

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2011 10:25 PM

It’s not about the “children.” It’s not about “fairness.” It’s about agitation and community organizing and ginning up hatred against political enemies. For the union radicals in Wisconsin, as I reported in my column on Friday, those enemies include the Koch brothers, the Tea Party movement, minority conservatives, female Republicans, independent citizen journalists…and Fox News.

Subtlety Takes a Holiday: Palin-Supporting Tea Party Character on CBS Drama Named ‘McVeigh’

By Doug Powers  •  February 26, 2011 02:42 PM

**Written by Doug Powers At least they didn’t make his first name “Adolph.” From Fox News: The CBS drama “The Good Wife” has raised a few eyebrows by naming Gary Cole’s character, a ballistics expert, Tea Party member, and Sarah Palin supporter, “Kurt McVeigh,” a not so subtle comparison to Timothy McVeigh, the man behind […]

Trumka: Best Way to Create Jobs is to Raise Taxes

By Doug Powers  •  February 26, 2011 10:03 AM

**Written by Doug Powers If this guy didn’t have the White House’s ear on a daily basis it might not be worth mentioning, but unfortunately, that’s not the case: What’s the best way to get Americans back to work? Raise taxes, according to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Specifically, he wants to raise the federal gas […]

By Doug Powers  •  February 25, 2011 03:03 PM

**Written by Doug Powers The gavel is gone, but the conceit lives on… From Politico: The Democratic National Committee wanted to honor Nancy Pelosi Thursday — but its praise wasn’t good enough for the House minority leader. When the DNC’s Resolutions Committee brought up a resolution commemorating Pelosi’s years as speaker of the House, Pelosi’s […]

Stupid lie of the week: Fox News people are hypocritical AFTRA members! Updated

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 25, 2011 01:02 PM

This moronic attack started percolating on the blogs and Twitter over the past week: Fox News hosts and contributors including Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, yours truly, and others are greedy, union-bashing hypocrites who are card-carrying members of AFTRA. Here’s a typical rant: “FOX talking heads are all card carrying union members. Funny, they […]

Hey, hey, outta their way, CWA renting protesters for pay in NJ

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 25, 2011 10:40 AM

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Eager to boost their rent-a-mob numbers, the Communications Workers of America (yes, the same union linked to the attack on FreedomWorks employees) in New Jersey are bribing union members to protest GOP Gov. Chris Christie. Via Newark Star-Ledger h/t Chris Wysocki: There appears to be efforts from unions to […]

Hate-a-rama: The vulgar, racist, sexist, homophobic rage of the Left

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 25, 2011 08:34 AM

Projection. My new syndicated column today does the reporting the Tea Party-bashing national media won’t do on the rabid outbreak of progressive incivility and violence at Big Labor protests across the country. On Saturday, the grievance convergence will descend on all 50 state capitols spearheaded by the smear merchants of MoveOn.org — who will stoke […]

Gaddafi: Shot or not?

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2011 03:17 PM

Global rumors that Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi has been shot roiled the markets this afternoon. Oil prices tumbled $2 a barrel. The White House says it has “no reason to believe” Gaddafi is dead. But given how CIA director Leon Panetta gets his intelligence — quick, get him the TV remote control! — there’s no […]

Gaddafi Was Jeremiah Wright Before Jeremiah Wright Was Cool

By Doug Powers  •  February 24, 2011 12:47 PM

**Written by Doug Powers As the Obama administration’s response to the situation in Libya stampedes decisively toward “strongly worded letter addressed to nobody in particular” territory, Aaron Klein has written about Barack Obama’s longtime paster, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and his connection to Muammar Gaddafi. Wright is quoted as saying the following the year before […]

Letter of the day: The plight of the conservative public school teacher

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2011 12:55 AM

Yesterday, I posted on public school teachers speaking truth to prog power — a topic I’ve been reporting on since the late-1990s, when I covered the battle of brave dissident educators who challenged the Washington Education Association’s misuse and abuse of forced dues for Democrat politics. Tonight, another public school teacher shared his thoughts with […]

Harry Reid to Nevada Legislature: ‘Hey, Let’s Outlaw Prostitution’ ::crickets::

By Doug Powers  •  February 23, 2011 04:22 PM

**Written by Doug Powers I’m going to side with Seton Motley on Reid wanting to outlaw Nevada prostitution — ol’ Harry just doesn’t want the competition, even if it is merely metaphorical (politics differs greatly in that its practitioners pay for favors with somebody else’s money and full consent of all involved parties isn’t required).
