Pastor Nadarkhani update: State Department, Boehner weigh in

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2011 10:46 AM

Yesterday, I asked the State Department several times if it would be making a statement about the impending execution in Iran of Christian pastor Yousef Nadarkhani. Late last night, they finally did — first via Twitter and then directly from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Keep spreading the word, putting pressure on your representatives to […]

Dead again? New reports of jihadi cleric Awlaki’s demise; God bless our military

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2011 10:06 AM

Let’s hope it really happened this time. In December 2009, Reuters reported that al Qaeda recruiter and Fort Hood jihadist spiritual advisor Anwar al Awlaki was killed in an airstrike in Yemen. He counseled the 9/11 jihadists, hailed Fort Hood gunman Nidal Hasan as a “hero,” reportedly inspired both the Christmas day would-be underwear bomber […]

Adventures in liberal tolerance, part 999,901

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2011 02:39 PM

Anti-Obama signs in New Orleans — on private property — have set off a frenzy of prog protests against free speech. Former and current politicians have “met” with the property owner as mobs gather near the offender’s home. Local city council members are plotting ways to punish the homeowner and squelch his speech: There are […]

Not funny: The Onion spreads fake, pointless report on Capitol hostage-taking, children at gunpoint

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2011 11:52 AM

This morning, the satirists at The Onion took things too far. The tasteless timing — more on that in a moment — makes their latest prank especially unfortunate. Onion editors posted the above photo of House Speaker John Boehner taking children hostage and mock-reported: WASHINGTON—Brandishing shotguns and semiautomatic pistols, members of the 112th U.S. Congress […]

Bloomberg: Protecting Citizens from Unhealthy Food is Government’s Highest Duty

By Doug Powers  •  September 29, 2011 09:47 AM

**Written by Doug Powers What is the government’s number one function? Some might say national security or maintaining a sound infrastructure, but for New York Mayor and legendary super-nanny Michael Bloomberg, the government’s highest duty is to… make sure the people have ready access to salad… or something like that: Speaking on the government’s role […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2011 09:30 AM

Over the years, I’ve highlighted the plight of Muslim apostates around the world. See here, here, and here, for example.

Our White House bully problem

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2011 09:30 AM

Media progs and Soros monkeys are working overtime to discredit yesterday’s Detroit News report on alleged White House intimidation of, and pressure on, Ford Motor Company over its popular ad critical of the government auto bailout. As I pointed out yesterday, it’s just another one of those Chicago coincidences that the Attack Watch goon squad’s […]

In Australia, a chilling verdict against free speech

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 27, 2011 10:58 PM

I’ve linked to the excellent work of Australian newspaper columnist and blogger Andrew Bolt many times over the year on this blog (see here.) So I was shocked to see that he was prosecuted and found guilty today in a federal court case over two columns he wrote in 2009 about race, entitlements, and politics. […]

Take a look at this Team Obama map. Spot the error? Yep, on the official Obama 57 states (flashback) map, Colorado has moved to Wyoming. Now, as usual, ask yourselves: What if [fill in the blank with any GOP politician] had been responsible for this? This classic photo of yet another gaffetastically gaffetastic Obama gaffe […]

Introspective Obama: Hey, I’m not telling enough stories; Plus: “I’m all dinged up”

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 27, 2011 10:05 AM

Double-digit unemployment. Disgruntled left flank. Rising grass-roots discontent. Economic egghead exodus. Gargantuan stimulus scandals. Bloody corruption. Mired in failure, President Obama has once again figured out what his real problem is. Saul Alinsky to the rescue! Obama also said that when he reflects back on his tenure in the White House, he thinks his administration […]
