E-mail of the day: Confessions of a Census worker

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 30, 2010 04:10 PM

If even half of what this anonymous reader who e-mailed about his experience as a Census worker is true, imagine the squandering of tax dollars taking place on a mass scale. Crikey. Hi, Michelle: I would first like to apologize for stealing your tax dollars, but if it wasn’t me, it would be someone else. […]

How the Left fakes the hate: A primer

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 26, 2010 10:40 AM

I’m still on semi-vacation, but the Left never takes a break from falsely accusing the Right of fomenting hatred and violence through political speech. The MSM never takes a break from whitewashing leftist intolerance, death threats, and extremism — and engaging in selective reporting (or rather, non-reporting) of the long history of leftists’ manufacturing of […]

My race is “American”

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 9, 2010 10:47 AM

Mark Krikorian is fighting back against Census form race politics and urging you to do the same: Fully one-quarter of the space on this year’s form is taken up with questions of race and ethnicity, which are clearly illegitimate and none of the government’s business (despite the New York Times’ assurances to the contrary on […]

Your Census boondoggle story of the day: Fortune cookies

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 23, 2010 12:45 PM

Photo via Seattle Times I’ve got another story to add to my Census taxpayer waste files. In addition to the gold-plated Super Bowl ads and cross-country caravans, billion-dollar kiddie propaganda, and multiculti p.r., you can now add government-sponsored Census fortune cookies to the pile. Really. Via the Seattle Times (h/t My Two Census): Next time […]

Indoctrination Watch: Student contest for “best census cheer”

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 5, 2010 12:28 PM

Photoshop: Leo Alberti The Census educrats are urging your schools to turn your kids into government cheerleaders — literally. Johnny may not be able to add, but he’ll be able to root loudly for his right to federal funding based on the most inflated head-count numbers possible. Yay! *** Jimme Bise tweets: “Two! Four! Six!

The Super-Sized Census Boondoggle

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 5, 2010 10:19 AM

My column looks at the bloated Census p.r. and education budget. GOP Sen. Johnny Isakson is asking questions. As well he should. History shows that the more the Census spends on advertising, the lower the response rate is. Best watchdog site for all the latest Census shenanigans: My Two Census. *** The Super-Sized Census Boondoggle […]

More Census propagandizing in the schools: $13 billion kiddie campaign

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 4, 2010 11:49 PM

I’ve noted the Obama administration’s use of children as Census p.r. staff before. (See Meet Obama’s newest Census collectors: Your kids!, Aug. 27, 2009). Brace for even more aggressive tactics in the classroom — like this effort in Florida (hat tip – reader Susanne): Ariel Civelek was just a baby in the last U.S. Census, […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 4, 2010 01:45 PM

Otherwise known as the tax-subsidized National Democrat Future Voter Outreach Drive: Anyone who doesn’t know there is a Census this year will know after Monday. The government’s unprecedented $340 million promotional blitz of the 2010 Census launches Monday with the debut of the Census Portrait of America Road Tour in New York City’s Times Square. […]

NBC’s “Law and Order” putting conservative media on trial?

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 9, 2009 01:22 PM

Reader Alex e-mails: “During the finale of ‘The Biggest Loser’ last night, NBC aired a promo spot for an episode of Law and Order where a conservative talk show host is put on trial for murder based on creating a ‘climate of hate.’ I know you’ve covered this aspect of the census worker story…” Indeed. […]

More on Sparkman: “Fed” was written Ashley Todd-style

Anatomy of a smear.
