Andrew Lawton, a Canadian conservative blogger and radio host on whose show I’ve had the pleasure and honor to appear, suffered a life-threatening medical emergency last December. Today, he courageously discloses the full story behind his health scare: He had attempted to take his life through an intentional drug overdose. Family and faith lifted him […]

From the bottom-of-the-barrel-scraping blogger whose reaction to the lynching of four American civilian contractors in Fallujah in 2004 was this… …comes today’s nominee for the progressive Left’s most ghoulish Tucson massacre Tweet of the week. He cheered the ruthless murders of American war veterans serving their country as civilian contractors in Iraq, and now he’s […]
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…
If you’re a longtime reader of this blog, you know all about the Gawker smear machine and its misogynist war on conservative women. Under Gawker Media boss Nick Denton, barrel-scraping blog Wonkette published racist, sexist crap like this: And manufactured smears like this. In 2008, it was lying Gawker that published Sarah Palin’s hacked private […]
The Founding Fathers must be rolling in their graves. In Philadelphia, home of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the city government has proposed smacking bloggers — our generation’s pamphleteers — with a $300 business tax. Yes, they are now requiring a license for Internet activists and hobbyists to exercise their free speech. Via Philly […]
A few weeks ago, many of you helped out as beta testers for the michellemalkin.com Android app. My website tech guru Ed Burns informs me that our free blog app is now up and running. Just go to the Android Market on your phone and search for “Michelle Malkin.” If you have a smartphone with […]
The U.S. Court of Appeals unanimously rejected the Obama FCC’s bid to expand its regulatory powers over the Internet this afternoon. As Clarice Feldman headlined the ruling succinctly: “Nyet to ‘Net Neutrality.’” Your refresher course via ReasonTV (more background here): Adam Bitely’s right. The speech redistributors may have lost this battle, but they won’t give […]
I had the pleasure last year of attending the 2009 Sammies Awards ceremony in Chicago held by the Sam Adams Alliance. The awards honor the country’s finest in citizen leadership and political activism — and I met some amazing grass-roots leaders, entrepreneurs, creative artists and whistleblowers. The group has just announced the 2010 winners, including […]
My friends at The Jawa Report, the counterterrorism blog that has done heroic work unmasking jihadi operatives online and on YouTube, have an exclusive report on the whistleblower who turned in “Jihad Jane.” Read the whole thing here — and be sure to send thanks and praise to the vigilant bloggers and watchdogs looking out […]
Note from MM: The following message about the acquisition of Hot Air, the group blog I founded in 2006, is cross-posted at Hot Air this morning. What a great week it was for Hot Air. And what a great future lies ahead for Allahpundit, Ed Morrissey, and the new Salem team! My thanks to Salem’s […]
There’s a milblog protest today supporting Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham. Laughing Wolf at Blackfive has a full list of participants and explains: FOR TODAY, Wednesday 16 December 2009, many if not most, fellow milblogs — including This Ain’t Hell, From My Position, Miss Ladybug, Boston Maggie, Grim’s Hall, and those participating in the Wednesday […]
Anatomy of a smear.
Problem: Too many damned conservative authors dominating the New York Times best-seller lists. Solution: A Fairness Doctrine from books!
Something horrible happened to Bill Sparkman, who worked part-time as a Census worker in rural southeastern Kentucky. He was found dead. Tied to a tree. Preliminary tests show he died of asphyxiation. But the “cause of Sparkman’s death is under investigation, and authorities have not ruled out suicide, an accident or homicide, said Kentucky state […]
Make a note of the Hollywood celebrities featured in this health insurance industry-bashing joint production from MoveOn.org and Will Ferrell, Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde, et al. No word yet on whether they’ll be making a protest video about the fund-raiser for Nancy Pelosi in Washington, D.C. being hosted by UnitedHealth care lobbyist Steve Elmendorf — […]
The White House, the National Endowment for the Arts, and more do-it-yourself vetting; Updated: NEA, you lie!
Last month, Big Hollywood’s Patrick Courrielche broke news on how the NEA was rustling up artists to help “serve” the White House political agenda. Big Government’s Mike Flynn and John Nolte have a follow-up here. (Updated: Courrielche has posted audio from the call contradicting the NEA’s spin here.) And the Washington Times — which reported […]
I’m in Nashville today for the inaugural Smart Girl Politics summit. These ladies were instrumental in the Tea Party movement and are organizing limited government activists across the country at the local and state level. It’s an incredible story — and you’ll never hear/read about it in the Washington Post Style section or on The […]
What’s more shameless than the Associated Press defying the wishes of a dying Marine’s family and splashing his bloody body all over the wires? Why, the Huffington Post reprinting a massively large version of the image on its front page with an accompanying blog commentary praising the AP photographer’s work as “tasteful” — along with […]
“…among our prizes is a grand-prize of a trip for two to Honolulu, Hawaii…”
