Bush nostalgia: Let’s not get carried away, ok?

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 9, 2010 10:04 AM

As you all know, President George W. Bush is on his book/rehabilitation tour — hitting every MSM and cable news show from the Today Show to Hannity, plus Oprah, Rush Limbaugh, and beyond. His candor, decency, self-effacement, and clear love of country stand in stark contrast to the current antagonist-in-chief at the White House, so […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 21, 2010 05:51 AM

Scroll for updates… My syndicated column today shines light on all the Goldman Sachs company men in the Obama administration’s midst. The GOP wants SEC correspondence disclosed. Here’s that story. In related news, Goldman Sachs cheerleader and beneficiary Rahm Emanuel met with NYC business elite about the financial reform plan. Listen up: Another attendee, who […]

After the “Special Master of Compensation”

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 9, 2009 04:39 PM

The WSJ broke the news on Friday about Obama’s new “pay czar,” Kenneth Feinberg. His official title as executive-pay-limiter-in-chief: Special Master of Compensation. Can’t wait to see his logo. Next up: Obama appoints the… …Distinguished Overlord of Oxygen Intake (to limit individual human carbon emissions); …Royal Captain of Calorie Consumption (to limit weight gain and […]

10 House Republicans for arbitrary salary control; Minority Whip Cantor votes “present” (!)

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 1, 2009 10:32 PM

Scroll for updates… 85 House Republicans, I shall remind you again, voted for the AIG/CYA confiscatory bonus tax. Some of them have learned their lesson, but not all. Today, 10 Republicans joined the Grabby Hands Democrats in passing the new “Pay for Performance Act” — to curb “excessive” employee pay at financial firms that receive […]

The coming G20 riots & the spread of mob rule

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 27, 2009 04:32 AM

My syndicated column today continues the theme I blogged about two days ago in the “Rule of the Mob” post. Keep an eye on next week’s G20 summit in London. Thousands of anti-capitalism zealots will be amassing there to intimidate and harass bankers. The vandalizing of the Scottish ex-banking executive’s home in Edinburgh is just […]

President Snippy: The video

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 25, 2009 10:05 AM

I mentioned in my liveblog of the POTUS/TOTUS show that President Obama got testy when asked by Ed Henry why his administration took so long to respond publicly to the AIG bonus botch. RCP clipped the video: OBAMA: “It took us a couple of days because I like to know what I’m talking about before […]

The Senate shows a little sense; confiscatory Republicans show no shame

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 24, 2009 10:45 AM

Cooler heads have prevailed in the U.S. Senate and in this particular case, it is a good thing. The Senate took its role as a deliberative body seriously and has buried the demagogic, backside-covering corporate bonus tax bill passed last week by the House. They’ve kicked the can down the road. The Hill reports: President […]

The David Copperfield School of Economic Recovery, Pt. II

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 23, 2009 06:20 AM

Now what? Last week, the Obama administration brought us a $1 trillion Federal Reserve magic trick hatched by the David Copperfield School of Economic Recovery — printing up a trillion bucks and “pumping it into the U.S. economy”…by buying up bonds and mortgage securities…sold and backed by the government. Today, hapless, truth-challenged tax cheat Treasury […]

Look beyond the bogus bonus smokescreen

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 20, 2009 10:56 AM

My syndicated column today tallies up all the craptacular spending that’s been going on while the AIG-bashing hypocrites on the Hill crow about $165 million in corporate bonuses none of them bothered to stop before they rushed to fork over billions to AIG in the first place. I mention the little-noticed $6 billion GIVE Act, […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 19, 2009 10:55 PM

You can find the full roll call vote on HR 1586, tax cheat Charlie Rangel’s ass-covering, after-the-fact AIG bonus tax here. I have broken out the 85 Republicans (led by GOP Minority Whip Eric Cantor) who voted with Rangel and the Democrat demagogues. Because you should know: Aderholt Alexander Barton (TX) Biggert Bilbray Bilirakis Blunt […]

Putting on a great show: Kabuki in the House; Update: 328-93, 90 percent bonus tax passes

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 19, 2009 01:56 PM

Scroll for updates… If you haven’t been watching the AIG bonus debate in the House, you really should tune in. Barney Frank is shrieking. Jumping up and down over parliamentary procedure. Blaming Bush, Bush, Bush, and then attacking GOP for “partisan attacks.” John Boehner just finished statement: “Are you kidding me? This is joke. Vote […]

Chris Dodd confesses: Yes, I slipped in the AIG bonus protection…’cuz Treasury made me

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 18, 2009 06:08 PM

Fall, fall on your sword, ye Purveyor of Hypocritical Indignation. Via CNN, unscrupulous borrower and No. 1 AIG benefactor Chris Dodd admits that yes, yes, he did support AIG bonus protections before he was against them: Senate Banking committee Chairman Christopher Dodd told CNN’s Dana Bash and Wolf Blitzer Wednesday that he was responsible for […]

All of the people should be executed with piano wire around their neck

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 18, 2009 03:30 PM

Update: Allah’s got video. Ditto what Allah says about Frank: “What a wretch.” I noted in the public flogging liveblogging below that Rep. Barney Frank rather flippantly dismissed the death threats against AIG executives. Edward Liddy read this threat, after which Frank smirked, “I am not persuaded:” All of the people should be executed with […]
