By Doug Powers  •  October 23, 2011 10:55 AM

**Written by Doug Powers They’ve been defacing memorials, defecating on police cars, disrupted local businesses and encouraged the overthrow of capitalism, but there’s no faster way to make New York Mayor Bloomberg completely lose patience than by including on the list of demands… cigarettes: An Occupy Wall Street protester who scaled a 70-foot art sculpture […]

By Doug Powers  •  October 21, 2011 04:28 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Amid the chaos of war, economic hardship, moral decay, crony capitalism, graft and corruption, is there any more refreshing way to kick off a weekend than by finding out that there are still at least a half dozen members of the US Senate who haven’t lost track of the real problem?

**Written by Doug Powers In January of 2010, a “green” automotive startup called Fisker, the recipient of a $529 million US Dept. of Energy loan, purchased a former GM plant in Wilmington, Delaware. Almost immediately there were suspicions of a possible quid pro quo deal involving Joe Biden. For now, though, those allegations can be […]

While you were sleeping: Sneaky midnight-hour Senate moves; EduJobs rejected, Commerce nominee/solar subsidy mogul approved, Fannie/Freddie loan limits increased

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 21, 2011 02:11 AM

Yes, I’m still awake. Up at 4am this morning and still going. Got home after a speech in Denver late tonight to find that the Senate (going on 900 + days without a budget) was up to all sorts of stealthy business in the midnight hour. As of 1:28am, the Senate was casting procedural votes […]

This is Adam Levine of the band Maroon 5. If you have tween-age daughters or aspiring pop star sons, you know who this guy is. And yes, you may even have been guilty of downloading his songs on iTunes or buying his CDs. Pleading guilty. Well, if you also happen to be conservative and enjoy […]

We can’t afford Commerce Secretary nominee/solar subsidy mogul John Bryson

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 19, 2011 12:58 PM

The White House is foisting Commerce Secretary nominee John Bryson on the public. Harry Reid wants a vote this week. GOP Sen. James Inhofe is leading the opposition, such as it is. Time for Tea Party activists to mobilize. Call your Senators – 202- 224- 3121. We can’t afford another eco-radical crony with more power […]

Video: Capital One Bank shill turns up to cheer on anti-bank agitators

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 19, 2011 09:55 AM

The cognitive dissonance abounds. In between bouts of anti-Semitic rants (that loony, Jew-bashing L.A. teacher was just fired, by the way), we have New York City occupiers holding up signs like this: The perfect cheerleader for this mess of a “movement?” Why, Capital One bank shill and Hollywood elitist Alec Baldwin, of course! He spent […]

Ladies and gentlemen, I hope you are paying attention. Democrats in Washington are turning up the heat on the GOP as they push for quick passage of the “mini” $35 billion union jobs bailout. True to Alinsky form, Team Obama is spinning more emo-narratives centered on saving teachers from layoffs. At a Save the Teachers […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 19, 2011 12:59 AM

We have entered a new phase of the endless Occupy Wall Street sleepover. After a month of provoking the police, generating mounds of trash, begging for free WiFi, port-o-potties, and food, teaching each other Kamp Alinsky hand signals, railing against Jews while holding up “Nazi Bankers” signs, grappling with pervs and rapists and thieves in […]

Fight Club: GOP candidates brawl on CNN

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 18, 2011 11:25 PM

Quick thoughts on tonight’s CNN GOP debate: The forum… *Mother fudge biscuits, can we quit with the goofy, one-minute introductions of candidates who’ve been on the air for years, if not decades? *Debates are much better without annoying buzzers, timers, and Gmail chat sounds. *Debates are infinitely more tolerable without the marginal Jon Huntsman and […]

So NOW it’s okay to report on Occupy Wall Street’s lack of racial diversity

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 17, 2011 03:11 PM

You just have to laugh. Heartily. When I noted that the Occupy Wall Street movement was filled with a sea of progressives of pallor and challenged the Tea Party-bashing media double standards on calling attention to the demographics two weeks ago, the occupiers filled my Twitter stream with profanities and racial epithets. Soros Monkeys tried […]
