Freedom to blog updates: Aaron Walker fights Brett Kimberlin gag order; the Left and endless lawfare; Update: New motion filed

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 22, 2012 11:04 AM

David Hogberg of Investor’s Business Daily has done a terrific job covering blogger Aaron Walker’s ongoing battle against speech-squelching Speedway bomber and online harasser Brett Kimberlin. Hogberg reports on the latest developments with links to documents: Back on May 29th, Brett Kimberlin won a peace order hearing in Maryland District Court against Aaron Walker, claiming […]

Bloomberg News enters MakeUpCrapistan: “I’M MAKING THIS UP;” Update: Bloomberg responds, editor regrets “unfortunate shorthand”

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 20, 2012 12:13 AM

Scroll down for update… At RightOnline in Las Vegas this weekend, those of us in the “Just A Blogger” club hammered away at the MSM journalistic elites and their self-serving double standards. Fantastic keynote speaker Sarah Palin mocked the inhabitants of MakeUpCrap-istan who disparage investigative bloggers while manufacturing the news themselves to fit their agendas. […]

Brett Kimberlin fail alert: Criminal charges against Aaron Walker dropped

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 15, 2012 01:01 PM

A free speech win this morning…perfectly timed for the Right Online conference, where thousands of bloggers and activists (self included) are gathering to celebrate and defend our 1st amendment rights. Still a long fight ahead on many fronts, but this is terrific news (via the Court of Maryland case search database): Nolle Prosequi means “do […]

The Twitchy iPad app is here!

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 13, 2012 09:47 AM

Conservatives have seized a major role this election season in Twitter’s battlespace. Our impact is driving progs and White House new media strategists nuts. I launched Twitchy.com, the Right’s premiere Twitter curation and aggregation website just three months ago and our team of indefatigable editors is already making a significant impact on political meme-gathering, narrative-shaping, […]

Bloggers under fire: Arizona conservative lawyer/activist targeted by left-wing Arizona State Bar

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 9, 2012 04:29 PM

I’ve turned the lights back on here at MichelleMalkin.com after “going dark” to help raise awareness about attacks on blogger free speech. Every phone call, e-mail, tweet, and letter you wrote yesterday to elected officials, state and federal government attorneys, and media outlets about SWAT-tings/convicted bomber and lying vexatious litigant Brett Kimberlin/his funders/his online cabal […]

Going dark to urge congressional action: Who will protect the freedom to blog?

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 8, 2012 01:11 AM

My syndicated column today covers the crucial battle between truth-telling bloggers versus convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin and his band of malicious online thugs. In honor of the National Day of Blogger Silence called by Ace of Spades, this blog is going dark. (UPDATE: See Ace’s manifesto today here. Read Mandy Nagy’s here.) But far from […]

Won’t back down: Amidst threats, National Bloggers Club announces Aaron Walker appeal; blogs to crank up pressure on Congress

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 6, 2012 02:20 AM

When I asked Ali Akbar of the National Bloggers Club for help with a website/infrastructure to support the blogger targets of convicted bomber/online terrorist Brett Kimberlin two weeks ago, he didn’t hesitate or waver. He stepped up to the plate because he believes in free speech and new media. I knew and respected him from […]

A post-Brett Kimberlin blogburst to-do list; Updated

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 28, 2012 12:40 AM

Remember what I wrote on Wednesday and what more than 150 blogs and thousands of Twitter activists united behind on Friday? This is literally a matter of life and death, freedom vs. terrorism. We side with life and freedom. The massive blogburst about convicted bomber and online terrorist ringleader Brett Kimberlin ended on Friday, but […]

Letter from an Indiana reader about Brett Kimberlin; Update: A tribute to Carl DeLong

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 25, 2012 10:05 AM

Hi: I had no idea that foul Brett Kimberlin was still around, causing trouble. Your posted info was quite a shock. That guy should still either be locked up, or he should have been pushed into a dark corner to slink away and stay hidden in the dark. I lived in the county N. of […]

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be “Julia”

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 4, 2012 09:27 AM

I told my 11-year-old daughter about “Julia.” She had one word: “Creepy.” I’m doing my job right. Notice, by the way, how “progressive” women are awfully quiet about the patriarchal hegemony symbolized by Obama’s faceless, dependent Julia. Cue the crickets: Chirp, chirp, chirp. *** Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be “Julia” by […]

It’s time for NBC News to appoint an independent ethics watchdog

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 9, 2012 02:06 PM

Those of us in the blogosphere who were around during the CBS News/Rathergate scandal remember how the narrative arc went: *CBS perpetuated journalistic fraud. *Conservative bloggers and alternative media called out Dan Rather and his con artist producer Mary Mapes for their malpractice. *CBS denied and delayed addressing the hoax. *The mainstream media tried to […]

Big is beautiful: Breitbart.com relaunches

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 5, 2012 09:36 AM

I said last week after Andrew Breitbart’s sudden death that “his legacy online and in the conservative movement is built to last.” To put a super-sized exclamation point on it, be sure to visit the re-launched Breitbart.com empire. All of the Big sites are now under one gorgeous umbrella, and the feature piece is Breitbart’s […]

DEVASTATING: Andrew Breitbart, R.I.P.

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 1, 2012 09:21 AM

I just confirmed with someone close to him that social media entrepreneur and conservative warrior Andrew Breitbart has passed away. I’m stunned. He was kinetic, brash, relentless, full of fight, the bane of the Left, and a mentor to the next generation of right-wing activists and citizen journalists. Please keep his family in your prayers. […]

Non-shocker of the morning: Soros monkeys coordinate with Democrats

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 13, 2012 10:03 AM

It’s always useful to have more confirmation of the gobsmackingly obvious. The Daily Caller provides a deeper glimpse into the Soros-backed Media Matters/Democrat propaganda machine. Before we get to that, recall that I posted an e-mail last week showing how the Soros monkeys coordinated with Capitol Hill “allies” on Keystone XL. I’ve also noted how […]

From “I, Pencil” to iPhone: The spontaneous order of capitalism

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 5, 2011 11:50 PM

There is perhaps no greater image of irony tonight than that of anti-capitalist, anti-corporate, anti-materialist extremists of the Occupy Wall Street movement paying tribute to Steve Jobs — the co-founder, chairman and former chief executive of Apple Inc., who passed away this evening. While the Kamp Alinsky Kids ditch school to moan about their massive […]

R.I.P. Steve Jobs

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 5, 2011 09:22 PM

A creative genius. American original. Entrepreneur extraordinaire. His vision transcended politics. His success showcased the power of the free market and individual initiative. R.I.P. From Apple CEO Tim Cook: Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to […]

Second U.S. jihadi reportedly killed in drone attack; Plus: Refresher course on American bloggers vs. Samir Khan

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2011 11:24 AM

Whoa. Fresh reports that a second U.S. jihadi was killed in the drone attack that allegedly took out al Qaeda spiritual guru Anwar al-Awlaki. His name will be very familiar to longtime blog readers. It’s Samir Khan: A young American who edited al Qaeda’s English-language magazine, and had urged Muslims to mount deadly attacks on […]

Hey, who’s up for more phallic corn dog gags?

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 16, 2011 12:44 AM

In the land of progressive inteh-LEK-chew-als, it’s the Tea Party folks who are crude rubes. Dressing up in colonial costumes is corn pone and low brow. Conservatives and Fox News viewers are uncouth and uneducated. But we’re not the ones snickering like Beavis and Butthead at photos of politicians eating corn dogs at state fairs. […]

Happy Father’s Day! (Plus a Video from Right Online)

By Doug Powers  •  June 19, 2011 01:20 PM

**Written by Doug Powers A very happy Father’s Day to all our dad readers, and I’d like to send out a special one to my own dad. My kids made me homemade cards. I don’t melt easily but that does it every time, although some will blame global warming. So far though nobody here has […]
