Palin Lawyers Warn Publisher of ‘The Rogue’ Not to Destroy Documents Ahead of Possible Lawsuit

By Doug Powers  •  September 26, 2011 10:46 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Last summer, as you know, author Joe McGinniss earned his place in the annals of literary stalkers by moving in next door to the Palin family, ostensibly to “research” a book. Well, that book is now out, and so far it has the makings of what could end up as an […]

Latest Obama stage prop: Retired mega-Dem donor/former Google asks prez to raise his taxes

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2011 04:42 PM

Just when you think Oba-Kabuki can’t get any more ham-handed and cheesier…it does. At a LinkedIn town hall/campaign rally forum with President Obama today, a questioner picked “randomly” from the audience just happened to beg the president to raise his taxes: More vid at The Right Scoop. The questioner is one Doug Edwards, an early […]

EPA Pushing the Envelope to Prove How Many Jobs New Regulations Could Create

By Doug Powers  •  September 26, 2011 03:12 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Last month Democrat Rep. Ed Markey from Massachusetts touted a wonderful side-effect of government regulations: more jobs. The EPA agrees and is trying to run with it more aggressively than ever. From the Daily Caller: The Environmental Protection Agency has said new greenhouse gas regulations, as proposed, may be “absurd” in […]

Obama’s “new, more combative” tone…same as the old tone

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2011 11:22 AM

I had to laugh at New York Times reporter Nicholas Confessore’s tweet this morning promoting an article by his colleague Jackie Calmes on Obama’s “new, more combative” tone on his West Coast fund-raising swing. Snortalicious: The Fishwrap of Record does its best to sell the illusion that only now is Chicago bully boy Obama taking […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2011 03:34 AM

Hmmmm. “Operation Vote.” That’s the new name of a Chicago-run voter recruitment drive launched this weekend by Team Obama to target minorities and shore up his left flank. As usual, everything old is new again… Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Via the Washington Post: President Obama’s campaign is developing an aggressive new program to expand support […]

When it Comes to Wealthy Campaign Donors, What’s in a Name?

By Doug Powers  •  September 25, 2011 10:31 PM

**Written by Doug Powers This one’s better if you first read a quote from the First Lady from back in June: “See, what you all need to know about the President you helped to elect is that when it comes to the people he meets, Barack has a memory like a steel trap,” For even […]

Government Saving the Ozone Layer One Asthma Inhaler at a Time

By Doug Powers  •  September 25, 2011 05:20 PM

**Written by Doug Powers On any given day I’d bet the amount of greenhouse gases Al Gore singlehandedly spews into the atmosphere more than trumps the chlorofluorocarbon footprint of all the epinephrine asthma inhalers in the U.S. combined. That said, since we’ve apparently solved all other major problems, it’s time to save the world from […]

Majority Rate Obama ‘Same or Worse’ Than Bush, New Poll Puts Approval at 36%

By Doug Powers  •  September 24, 2011 03:25 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Clearly this must be Bush’s fault: When a random sample of 1004 adults were asked to compare the 43rd and 44th presidents, 34 percent of respondents said Obama had been a worse president than Bush, while 22 percent said he was about the same. Forty-three percent, a plurality, said they preferred […]

Your Obama U.N. class photo of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2011 05:49 PM

You know that gaffetastic United Nations photo-op of President Obama earlier this week? The one where his beauty pageant wave blocked another foreign dignitary and elicited gigglesnorts heard ’round the world? Well, photographer/videographer extraordinaire Michael Deppisch memorialized the moment with an animated .gif that I just had to share. This should be the U.N. Christmas […]

Politics over country: Senate Dems delay stopgap funding/disaster bill

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2011 02:08 PM

Ah, the games Beltway people play. Harry Reid is stalling: The U.S. Senate agreed to delay further action on a stopgap spending bill until Monday as Democrats and Republicans remained at odds over the measure, which would refill depleted disaster funds and ensure the government does not shut down in October. “Everyone once in a […]

Blocked by Alec Baldwin; Plus: Laughing at liberal hate

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2011 12:49 PM

So on Wednesday night, I was on Twitter when the news broke that the U.S. Supreme Court had refused to stay the execution of convicted Georgia Death Row inmate Troy Davis. As I often do, I simply re-tweeted a link to the news bulletin without commentary: I followed it with four other brief tweets – […]

Government Loans to Nowhere

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2011 11:04 AM

(Click to watch) Well, another House hearing on Solyndra came and went this morning. In another Great Moment Of Transparency in the Age of Obama, the Solyndra execs took the Fifth as promised. The Democrats’ erstwhile chief inquisitor and witch hunter of Capitol Hill, Henry Waxman, demonstrated his trademark chutzpah by complaining that the GOP […]

Obama Hails ‘Intercontinental Railroad’… Again

By Doug Powers  •  September 23, 2011 09:47 AM

**Written by Doug Powers Yesterday, President Obama promoted his “jobs bill” at a bridge that might not even be eligible for jobs bill money. Andrew Malcolm at Top of the Ticket noticed something during Obama’s latest “Bridge to Bankruptcy” speech that would be much more widely reported if Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin had said […]

Breaking: House passes short-term continuing resolution in dead of night

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2011 01:09 AM

Last week, I alerted you to the fight on the right over the massive omnibus spending bill. Well, it’s 1am Eastern time, and the House just passed the short-term FY 2012 spending bill by a vote of 219-203. 24 fiscal conservatives said no to the $24 billion spending hike. Per Chad Pergram at Fox News: […]

Video: Perry’s cringe-worthiest debate moment

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2011 12:08 AM

This is a gimme. Seriously. I mentioned Rick Perry’s DREAM Act debate blunder in my round-up post. It gets second place. The cringe-worthiest moment, by a hair, was when Perry botched what should have been his most potent attack on Mitt Romney’s chronic flip-flopping. As I noted on Twitter when it happened, any random high […]

FOX News/Google GOP 2012 debate: The “Obama lite” label and venture socialism; Updated: Wrap-up, winners, losers

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2011 07:31 PM

Graphic via FoxNews.com The latest GOP 2012 debate starts at 9pm Eastern tonight on Fox news. GOP Rep. Thad McCotter dropped his quixotic, redundant bid today (really, how many pro-bailout, pro-health care entitlement expansion Republicans do we need in the race), so he’s off the schedule. Taking his place: Libertarian Gary Johnson. Yep, another quixotic, […]

Tom Harkin: Get Arrested to Save Medicaid

By Doug Powers  •  September 22, 2011 02:32 PM

**Written by Doug Powers At a rally in DC yesterday, Sen. Tom Harkin said this concerning Medicaid: “We need some of you probably getting arrested for doing things you shouldn’t be doing.” Oh come on, Senator, only so many people can serve in Congress at any one time. Harkin never did say if the purpose […]

Guess Which House Member is Being Honored Today With a Portrait Ceremony?

By Doug Powers  •  September 22, 2011 04:36 AM

**Written by Doug Powers It hasn’t even been a year since the House censured NY Rep. Charlie Rangel for 11 ethics violations, which makes it the perfect time to celebrate with a ceremony to unveil his official portrait.

The Big Labor aroma in Tacoma

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 21, 2011 12:58 PM

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you’re familiar with the “aroma in Tacoma” — that infamous odor caused by the pulp mills and cow manure. Well, there’s a different kind of aroma overtaking the city. It’s the stench of Big Labor intransigence as the public teachers’ union defies a court order to end its […]
