First, they came for the Catholics

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 31, 2012 10:51 PM

My latest column examines the Obama administration’s continuing war on religious health care professionals, which I spotlighted when the ACLU first launched its salvo against Catholic hospitals in 2010. What’s noteworthy now is the united front that Catholic bishops (who have traditionally taken big government positions) are now taking against the Obamacare abortion edict. Better […]

For Santorum

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 30, 2012 08:24 AM

RickSantorum.com Rick Santorum opposed TARP. He didn’t cave when Chicken Littles in Washington invoked a manufactured crisis in 2008. He didn’t follow the pro-bailout GOP crowd — including Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich — and he didn’t have to obfuscate or rationalize his position then or now, like Rick Perry and Herman Cain did. He […]

Prayers for Bella Santorum

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2012 10:38 PM

Word came down tonight that Rick Santorum has canceled his Sunday campaign events to be with his 3-year-old daughter, Bella, who was admitted to Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia earlier today. The Santorums have spoken movingly throughout their campaign about Bella, who was born with Trisomy 18, and recently had surgery. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports: The […]

The SIGA scandal: Calls for investigation mount

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2012 02:13 PM

Back in November, I spotlighted Obama’s half-billion-dollar crony drug deal involving a no-bid contract with politically-connected SIGA. Refresher course here. In November, Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill — chair of the Senate Subcommittee on Contracting and Oversight and up for re-election in less than a year — asked HHS to review the contract. Last week, the […]

Mr. and Mrs. Cranky Pants

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2012 10:35 AM

Mr. and Mrs. Cranky Pants by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 So, it turns out that the cool cat billed as “No Drama Obama” by his sycophants is actually quite the drama queen. While the White House publicly pretends to ignore conservative detractors of his administration, Chief Touchy-Touchy seems to be personally consumed by […]

Fly Them To the Moon. Please.

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2012 12:32 AM

Photoshop source: SaveJersey.com You can peruse my Twitter page for highlights and lowlights of the CNN GOP debate in Florida, but this basically sums it up: Wolf Blitzer went all Oprah/TMZ with his fishing into the candidates’ wives’ lives. Newt doubled down on open-borders stupid and gave an indignant defense of illegal alien grandmothers that […]

Confirmed: Romneycare = Obamacare

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 26, 2012 10:32 AM

Jim Pethokoukis spotlights a new Health Affairs study on how Romneycare laid the foundation for Obamacare, and what it portends for the federal health insurance scene. In short: Expanded government coverage, higher taxpayer costs. Read here for details and analysis. His conclusion: The authors conclude that based on the Romneycare experience, Obamacare will improve coverage […]

E-mail of the day: Media Matters coordinates with Capitol Hill “allies” on Keystone XL; Plus: 20,000 jobs “is not that many”

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 25, 2012 11:23 PM

A flack for Media Matters for America, the Soros-backed one-trick GOP-bashing pony, sent an e-mail peddling the group’s latest anti-Keystone XL “study” to the Senate Democrats’ communications director at the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Mary Kerr. For some reason, Senate Republican EPW communications director Matt Dempsey with GOP Sen. James Inhofe’s office also […]

Gingrich channels open-borders SEIU; Rubio rebukes; Update:Newt retreats

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 25, 2012 10:56 AM

Photoshop: Reader Jimmy D. Yesterday, the SEIU and left-wing USA Action launched Spanish-language radio attacks on Mitt Romney for his support of immigration enforcement measures. One of Romney’s advisers is Kris Kobach — a constitutional law professor, Kansas Secretary of State, and staunch leader in the fight against illegal alien amnesty and ACORN-style voter fraud. […]

Obama’s Green Robber Barons

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 25, 2012 09:13 AM

Obama’s Green Robber Barons by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Had enough of fat cat Barack Obama, his jet-setting wife and his multi-millionaire Chicago consigliere/real-estate mogul Valerie Jarrett attacking the “rich”? Well, brace yourselves. You’ll be hearing much more from the White House about the “wealthy few” who aren’t paying their “fair share” as […]

Warren Buffett’s Secretary to Sit with First Lady at State of the Union Speech

By Doug Powers  •  January 24, 2012 12:35 PM

**Written by Doug Powers In spite of the fact that even Warren Buffett is unsure what the “Buffett Rule” is, President Obama, fully aware that the US tax code is in dire need of more ambiguity, will push for it in his State of the Union speech tonight. Just to hammer home the point, Buffett’s […]

State of the Union? 1,000 Days without a Budget

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 24, 2012 09:40 AM

As we prepare to watch President Obama lambaste Republicans for obstructionism in his State of the Union address tonight, remember: Today marks 1000 days since the Senate last passed a full budget. Pass it on: From the Heritage Foundation, things that were accomplished in less than 1,000 days…and things that were not: From my friends […]

(See here. All previous Wuterich trial coverage and Haditha links below.) Today, the plea deal […]
