**Written by Doug Powers Want memos detailing US interrogation techniques? Here you go. Want to know the size of the US nuclear arsenal? No problem. Want to know what flavor ice cream the Obamas ordered? Sorry, that’s a secret! (h/t HAP) **Written by Doug Powers Twitter @ThePowersThatBe
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 […]
My friend Lisa De Pasquale writes a fun feature for Human Events called “De Pasquale’s Dozen.” It’s an offbeat, up-close-and-personal interview series she conducts with conservative writers, public officials, and other neat people on the right side of the political aisle. You can find her archive here. This week, she got me to reveal my […]
Who is it THIS time?
**Written by Doug Powers Today is the 41st anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing on July 20, 1969. It’s also my oldest son’s 15th birthday, but I digress… We hear a lot about “progress” these days, but it usually involves bailouts, freebies, nanny-state nonsense, deficit spending and perverting the name of “science” to justify […]
Do you use an Android-based cell phone? We are looking for some beta testers to give our michellemalkin.com Android app a spin. UPDATE: Thanks for the overwhelming response. The beta signup is now closed. If you missed it, don’t worry – you will not have to wait too long before we release the app to […]
Hope you are all having a wonderful Independence Day. So: What’s cooking on your grill this weekend? I made Filipino-style BBQ chicken and pork (secret ingredient: Sprite!) and corn on the cob with hoisin sauce (if you don’t have siracha sauce, use red pepper flakes). Share your favorite recipes and enjoy the rest of the […]

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers Well, it’s not really a “news” graphic because it’s from a parody news program. Can you guess which one? The Ed Schultz Show on MSNBC? Not this time. No, not Chris Matthews. Larry King? Nope. The CBS Evening News? No, keep going… Olbermann? Nuh-uh — I said a parody news […]
Head out on the highway… As I mentioned last week, I’m with my family on our first ever RV trip. (Thanks to readers and e-mailers for sharing your wonderful travel memories.) Internet and phone access on my trek have been quite spotty – blissfully so. Doug Powers will continue to hold down the fort here […]
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I’ve been spending a bit more time away from the blog as family time and summer planning have taken precedence. One of the big projects I’ve been organizing is something I’ve always dreamed of: a great American road trip. We’re renting an RV (first time!) and we’ll be […]
**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers We spend Memorial Day weekend honoring our heroes past and present, but I thought an “on the lighter side” story would be appropriate, provided it featured one of those heroes. Via HotAirPundit, here’s one Marine who’s pretty impressed with “the hottest cougar in the Republican Party”: So it is, however. […]
**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers Tis the season for giving instead of receiving… for a change: The problem for Bill and the Obama administration is that “job offer” might have saved its clothes in a closet and told a friend about it. The White House is now hoping everybody believes that they were unaware Sestak […]
Given current trends, I’m not yet willing to dismiss this as pure satire. Ya never know! **Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers Twitter @ThePowersThatBe
As a high school freshman, I remember watching the launch of the first shuttle, Columbia, in 1981. Today is the swan song for the shuttle program: CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – NASA has cleared the space shuttle Atlantis for its final planned launch on Friday afternoon as the U.S. space agency prepares to retire its aging […]
Dried pressed flowers. A pastel crochet chain. Thumbprint art on a homemade bookmark. Simple things from my two munchkins for Mother’s Day. Simple, cherished, pure and wonderful morsels of love: *** A Mother’s Day story you will never forget: Read this before you start your work week. The Briseno family page on Facebook is here.
We are big game-players in my family. If it’s a board game or a card game, we’ve got it — from the classics to the latest fads: Scrabble, Boggle (the original 5×5 grid!), Life, Monopoly, Sorry, Sorry Sliders, Bananagrams, Apples to Apples Jr., Guesstures, Blokus, Pictionary, Scattergories, Risk, Battleship, backgammon, etc., etc., etc. As soon […]
Just returned to Colorado this evening after a fun-and-sun-filled vacation with my family. As wonderful as the trip was, I’m glad to be back in the Springs. California is still a fiscal basket case. Big Labor and the Open-Borders Lobby still rule the collapsing roost. I still have 1994 Northridge earthquake PTSD. And the traffic […]
Today is a baking day. I’m attempting to make a Bakugan birthday cake for my son. (Here’s last year’s Pikachu cake.) Gulp. I need the Cake Boss! Wish me luck and talk amongst yourselves. *** Update: The (lopsided!) Bakugan Ball cake is done. Pix here.
What not to wear.
Things you should try once in your life: Flying on a trapeze! Checked it off the list this weekend. Yep, that’s really me, conquering an abject fear of heights with help from my very dear, adventure-loving friends. Wheeeeee. What’s the wildest thing you’ve done?
After a long runaround, ironically, this could be the only way to finally get to the bottom of this mess and find out once and for all what she knew, and when she knew it. If it helps thwart just one more attack on our intellects, it’ll be worth it: But if anybody asks, I […]
I mentioned this on Twitter last night. Today is Odd Day (5/7/9): “Three consecutive odd numbers make up the date only six times in a century. This day marks the half-way point in this parade of Odd Days which began with 1/3/5. The previous stretch of six dates like this started with 1/3/1905—13 months after […]
