By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2014 02:57 AM

Standing up against wealth-shaming by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 America, we have a bullying epidemic. No, not the school bullying issues that get constant attention from Hollywood, the White House and the media. No, not the “fat-shaming” and “body-shaming” outbreaks on Facebook. The problem is wealth-shaming. Class-shaming. Success-shaming. The State of the Job […]

Barack Obama’s “Social Innovation” slush fund by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 We all know now what the vengeful Obama IRS has been doing to conservative nonprofits the past four years: strangling them in the crib. But do you know how much pampering and largesse far-left welfare-state charities have received while limited-government groups suffered? […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 2, 2010 11:38 PM

Kris Kobach, the GOP candidate for Secretary of State in Kansas has won his race — unseating incumbent Democrat Chris Biggs by a huge margin.

ACORN’s latest target

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 6, 2010 01:52 PM

I kid you not: Bed bugs. ACORN Canada is using the issue to push a new government licensing scheme on all landlords, which would drive up rent and lead to less affordable housing, not more. Gotta love these social justice crusaders — worse than the pests they’re exploiting. Like this:Like Loading…

ACORN Watch: New HUD IG report details counseling grant scams

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 01:54 PM

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti My reporting on ACORN’s housing counseling grant rip-offs go back to April 2008, when I spotlighted the left-wing mortgage counseling racket. As bad as the ACORN/Obama alliance is, I’ve pointed out several times that this mess festered under the Bush administration and a GOP ruling majority. Now, GOP Rep. Daryl Issa […]

ACORN/Project Vote retreat from bully lawsuit against whistleblower

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 8, 2010 02:19 PM

Last June, I told you about the speech-squelching attempt by ACORN/Project Vote to silence one of its most potent critics — former Project Vote official-turned-whistleblower Anita MonCrief. Good news to report, via the Center for Individual Rights: Today an abrupt end came to a lawsuit that Project Vote, an affiliate of the Association of Community […]

ACORN to Shut Down on April Fool’s Day

By mmguestblogger  •  March 24, 2010 10:10 AM

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti The pimp-advice-giving liberal organization will close down operations on April 1. Ironic? Maybe not. Somebody at ACORN just might be clever enough to have picked the date to telegraph the organization’s intentions. ACORN will continue to live in some form or another. Organizations like ACORN don’t die; they retreat and regroup. […]

Demcare and the race hustlers: It’s not just about ACORN

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 21, 2009 10:28 PM

The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack reports tonight that Illinois Democrat Sen. Roland Burris is claiming credit for inserting a provision that may benefit ACORN. But it’s not just the ACORN angle that’s scandalous. It’s the race hustler shakedown. Why, oh, why do we need to be funding massive new federal bureaucracies to create separate “Offices […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 7, 2009 12:32 PM

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti You are going to be shocked, shocked, I tell you, when you read the conclusion of the “independent” review of ACORN’s recent activities by ACORN’s “independent” assessor, left-wing former Massachusetts AG and Common Cause president Scott Harshbarger.

Doing the digging the dinosaur media won’t do
