Marizela Perez turns 19 today. Happy Birthday, Emem! As you know, my beloved cousin has been missing nearly two months. Her parents, family, and friends continue to search Seattle and beyond. Strangers near and far are working on the case. Praying. Hoping. Pushing. But there have been no new leads since the last time I […]

Jobs a Trump Presidency Would ‘Save or Create’

By Doug Powers  •  April 30, 2011 12:42 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Imagine for a moment that Donald Trump is elected president next year. Sure, there would be plenty of stimulus work for the construction industry what with the new giant “TRUMP” sign that would be put up over the White House, but, as The Donald demonstrated in Las Vegas last week, think […]

By Doug Powers  •  April 29, 2011 03:37 PM

**Written by Doug Powers If you want to make a few extra bucks, put a Groucho glasses vending machine outside Paul Ryan’s townhalls. Just a hunch. From USA Today: GREENFIELD, Wis. — At the last of four events on Rep. Paul Ryan’s “listening tour” of his district Thursday, he called on a man in the […]

Soros monkeys baselessly blame Southern tornados on…

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 29, 2011 10:57 AM

“Climate Pollution Deniers.” Shorter Think Progress headline via VerumSerum: “Tornadoes bring death, justice to climate deniers.” Of course. Never mind the facts: US meteorologists warned Thursday it would be a mistake to blame climate change for a seeming increase in tornadoes in the wake of deadly storms that have ripped through the US south. “If […]

May Day: The Wisconsin Witch Hunt Goes National

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 29, 2011 09:31 AM

My column today spotlights the latest attempt by the Left to use campaign finance disclosure as a weapon to intimidate and silence political opponents. Both Big Labor and open-borders forces have scheduled their usual May Day protests this weekend, with a special emphasis on Wisconsin and GOP Gov. Scott Walker. Be careful out there. And […]

More incompetent boobs advising Obama on immigration

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 28, 2011 05:26 PM

President Obama is getting serious about border security and immigration. Rilly. Rilly. Serious. He’s called in the heavyweights to help him forge a policy breakthrough. The heavyweights include night-time soap opera actress Eva Longoria and other ethnic starlets: President Barack Obama is enlisting Hispanic celebrities, including actresses Eva Longoria, America Ferrera and Rosario Dawson, today […]

Out: ‘Pets’ — In: ‘Companion Animals’

By Doug Powers  •  April 28, 2011 04:36 PM

**Written by Doug Powers It’s time once again for a story about “leading academics” who do little else except prove why they shouldn’t be referred to as “leading academics.” As the UN debates human rights for “Mother Earth” and all its plants, animals and terrain, others are trying to prepare the world for how animals […]

Finally: Catholic Church suspends rogue Chicago Rev. Michael Pfleger

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 27, 2011 10:41 PM

News out of the Windy City tonight: Chicago’s Cardinal Francis George has at long last suspended prog nutball Rev. Michael Pfleger. Pardon my language, but it’s about damned time. The Chicago Tribune reports: “Citing what he called threats from the Rev. Michael Pfleger to leave the church, Cardinal Francis George has removed the outspoken priest […]

The birth certificate circus

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 27, 2011 12:01 PM

Over the last two and a half years, I’ve taken a lot of heat from birthers right here in my own blog comments section, on the radio, and in my e-mail box for warning about the lurch into fringe conspiracism — a penchant shared by Trig Truthers, 9/11 Truthers, and birthers. Flashback December 2008: The […]

Obama Finally Says ‘Drill Baby Drill’ (No, Not You America)

By Doug Powers  •  April 27, 2011 04:35 AM

**Written by Doug Powers It’s a start: President Obama is finally saying “drill baby drill.” If the story stopped right there I’d give him this week’s Sarah Palin Awakenings award. The problem is that Obama is calling on every oil producing nation with the exception of the United States to increase the supply in a […]

Wisconsin Watch: Partisan calls from…a hospital?; Plus: UW fake sick-note doctors to “face penalties”

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2011 05:25 PM

Well, how did this happen, hmmm? The Wisconsin GOP reports that Democrats in the Dairy State are “using a fraudulent tactic to harass and intimidate constituents who favor recalling Democrat Senator Dave Hansen of Green Bay.” Somehow, calls are being placed in the name of “Bay Care Aurora” — a local hospital — by left-wing […]

Dear NPR: What’s so funny about death threats?

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2011 03:19 PM

Remember those misdirected death threats from unhinged anti-Koch addicts that Doug Powers spotlighted last week? Refresher here. Well, government-sponsored National Public Radio — erstwhile guardians of civility — apparently found the death-threat misdirection amusing. A segment last Friday on NPR’s Morning Edition made light of the plight of Iowa businessman Dutch Koch — no relation […]

Is Chris Matthews Writing Headlines at Politico These Days?

By Doug Powers  •  April 26, 2011 12:47 PM

**Written by Doug Powers From Politico by way of Weasel Zippers: In addition to 420 seconds in heaven, well-behaved reporters will even get their very own autographed halo to take home. It’s like the Burger King kids crown except covered in Hope & Change instead of fry grease and ketchup (**Disclaimer: Heaven & halo offer […]

Paul Krugman: For entitlement reform before he was against it

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2011 10:21 AM

Krugman vs. Krugman Not that you needed any more evidence that New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is a flip-flopping charlatan, but here’s the latest. Today, he assails GOP proposals to raise the Medicare age and, by extension, the Social Security retirement age. (My column on the subject from earlier this month is here.) Krugman […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 25, 2011 10:50 AM
