From the 2009 MichelleMalkin.com Wreckovery logo contest 5 years later: How’s that Wreckovery working out for ya? by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 On Feb. 17, 2009, President Obama promised the sun and the moon and the stars. That was the day, five years ago, when he signed the $800 billion “American Recovery and […]
Happy June, everyone. Yesterday, I brought you news of the latest sky-high food-stamp usage figures. Today brings a torrent of more bad economic news that Team Obama and his spinners will find away to celebrate: Wall Street is having a hard time figuring out what to do now that the U.S. economy appears to be […]
David Hogberg at IBD is doing the job the government can’t/won’t do: Tracking porkulus waste. His analysis found that “$154 million in stimulus funds is going to low-traffic rural airports that already get subsidies and tax breaks — and whose net economic benefit is a matter of considerable debate.” It’s not just Jack Murtha’s airport/radar […]
Last week, I spotlighted the left-wing egghead economists who glide effortlessly through the White House-academia revolving door despite failure after failure in the real world. Earlier today, the professor-in-chief himself opened his mouth and exposed his abject ignorance of how free markets work. Straining to explain away another Wreckovery Summer, President Obama blamed technological innovation […]
Porkulus: Cash for Tax Cheats by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 When President Obama signed the trillion-dollar stimulus law in 2009, he proclaimed that he was “keeping the American dream alive in our time.” The stimulator-in-chief failed to mention that billions would be spent keeping American tax scammers afloat on our dime. At a […]

This much: On the PBS NewsHour last night, Brooks admitted that President Obama told him a year ago that he knew that the “shovel-ready project” propaganda he employed to pass the massive porkulus bill was a steaming load of […]
Building on my continuing War on the West/War on Jobs series, today’s column initiates an Obama jobs death toll. The social justice Left has always used Alinskyite story-telling to get its way. Time for the Right to better tell the stories of the forgotten victims of the Obama job-killing machine. Regarding the new CBO report […]
For the past few months, I’ve been spotlighting the Obama administration’s War on the West, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s War on Jobs, and the White House land lock-up (Part 1, Part 2). Today’s column exposes the next Obama environmental power grab — into the sea. *** And now: The Stealth Obama Ocean Grab by Michelle […]
I’ve gotten tons of e-mails over the last several days regarding the new Obama-fied logo for the Missile Defense Agency (it was unveiled last fall). If you go to the DOD/MDA’s website here, you’ll see both the new logo at the top and the old logo at the bottom. Old: New: Free Republic first noticed […]
Aw. The trillion-dollar Porkulus turned one today. Let’s all raise a bacon-wrapped toast to generational theft. Here’s a handy timeline of the wreckovery: http://republicanwhip.house.gov/floor/A%20Stimulus%20Timeline.pdf The White House is in full defense mode spinning the stimulus salvation. Leave your favorite examples of porkulus failure/waste in comments or e-mail.
A few weeks ago, I said we needed a new metric for all the bogus jobs claimed by the Obama White House. I called it the “Stimulus Jobs Inflation Index.” The Examiner does even better — creating a handy, interactive Stimulus Jobs Inflation Map. More than ten percent of the jobs the Obama administration has […]
Scheduled to appear on Fox & Friends this morning for the regular 8:15am Eastern gig.

John Campbell comments to the […]
