Delphi update: More White House meddling in UAW bailout revealed

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2011 12:57 PM

If you paid attention here last fall, you know all about how Obama Treasury officials screwed over non-union white-collar workers at Delphi, a leading auto parts company spun off from GM a decade ago. See my September 2010 Special Report– The Delphi disaster: An economic horror story Obama won’t tell. (More background links below.) A […]

Jobless Claims Rise Not Entirely ‘Unexpected’ This Time

By Doug Powers  •  June 23, 2011 09:44 AM

**Written by Doug Powers I’m shocked that Reuters didn’t use the word “unexpectedly” to describe the latest rise in jobless claims, a habit they and other mainstream news outlets have had for the past couple of years that has been mocked relentlessly in the blogosphere. This morning Reuters proved they’re starting to catch on… sort […]

Terror in the Beltway update: Would-be Pentagon bomber reportedly linked to military target shootings; Update: New arrests in Seattle…Shhhh, don’t say “Muslim;” Update: Pentagon bomb suspect’s “Allahu Akbar!” tapes

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 22, 2011 05:25 PM

Last fall, I spotlighted several terrifying shooting incidents at D.C.-area Marine buildings and military installations (see here and here). Shots were fired at the Marine Corps Museum in D.C., the Pentagon, a vacant Marine Corps recruiting station in Chantilly, Va, and a Coast Guard recruiting station in Woodbridge, VA. The shootings remained unsolved…until now, it […]

Document drop: ICE memos open another door to illegal alien amnesty-by-fiat

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 22, 2011 10:22 AM

We knew it was coming. I’ve warned for years about illegal alien amnesty by executive fiat and the backdoor sabotage of immigration enforcement by this administration — and every one preceding it over the last two decades. I’ve also reported on how Congress issues individual deportation waivers to illegal aliens. And I’ve spotlighted the deadly […]

Jon Huntsman: McCain on Wheels

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 22, 2011 09:45 AM

My syndicated column today dissects the media-manufactured candidacy of Jon Huntsman. While liberal reporters swoon, New Hampshire voters gave him thumbs down as he tried to gin up support yesterday. Here’s his pathetic explanation for calling Obama a “remarkable” leader. And via Allahpundit, check out the insipid, condescending Huntsman ad touting his “good,” “calm” demeanor. […]

Harry Reid Favors Huntsman Over Romney

By Doug Powers  •  June 21, 2011 06:50 PM

**Written by Doug Powers File this one under “Romney finally catches a break on the praise from liberals” — not that it seems to bother him a whole lot. First Read: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, reviled by conservatives for ushering Democratic legislation through Congress during Obama’s first two years in office, told reporters Tuesday […]

**Written by Doug Powers According to the White House transcript of President Obama’s address to a DNC fundraiser in Washington, DC, the speech contained quite a few laugh lines: I’ve got a lot of friends in the room here. People who knew me before anybody could pronounce my name. (Laughter.) People who knew me before […]

Reminder: Another zealot waiting in ATF wings

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 21, 2011 10:52 AM

Thanks to vigilant pressure from 2nd amendment bloggers and House GOP Oversight and Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa, the White House is set to throw acting ATF director Kenneth Melson under the bus over the Project Gunrunner/ Fast and Furious scandal (all background links below).

NBC Apologizes for Omitting ‘a Portion’ of the Pledge of Allegiance

By Doug Powers  •  June 19, 2011 07:19 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Which portion was edited out… twice? You probably guessed it already. Newsbusters: NBC on Sunday decided to cut the words “under God” from the reading of the Pledge of Allegiance that accompanied the beginning of its coverage of the U.S. Open Golf Championship. In fact, this happened twice during the show’s […]

Obama Spokesman: Dems Don’t Own the Economy, Everybody Does

By Doug Powers  •  June 18, 2011 10:14 AM

**Written by Doug Powers On Wednesday, the DNC Chair wasn’t paying close enough attention and stepped in donkey droppings: Democrats are ready to take responsibility for the state of the economy and they deserve credit for putting it on the right track, the party’s chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said on Wednesday. “We own the […]

Obamacare waivers on ice — for now

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 17, 2011 11:33 PM

Well, well, well. How’s this for a weekend news dump? The White House is waving goodbye to Obamacare waivers. The announcement comes as questions about the legality of the HHS program are swelling and challenges to the process persist. The Overlords of Transparency always have impeccable timing. Also: Indefatigable denial. Deny, deny, deny: Removing a […]

Bush: ‘Miss Me Yet?’ — Dennis Kucinich: ‘Yes’

By Doug Powers  •  June 17, 2011 10:55 AM

**Written by Doug Powers To say that Kucinich longs for the days of George W. Bush would be a wild over statement — after all, Kucinich wanted to impeach him — but maybe it’s not a stretch to say Dennis appreciated that Bush was more constitutionally considerate than the current president on the issue of […]
