The trial of the last Haditha Marine: SSgt Wuterich takes plea deal

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 23, 2012 03:25 PM

Last week, I noted the possibility of a plea deal in the trial of SSgt Frank Wuterich, the last of the U.S. Marines charged in connection to an alleged massacre of Iraqi civilians in the village of Haditha in 2005. (See here. All previous Wuterich trial coverage and Haditha links below.) Today, the plea deal […]

The last Haditha Marine: Wuterich trial update

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 5, 2012 06:19 PM

I told you on Monday about the opening of SSgt Frank D. Wuterich’s trial this week in connection to an alleged massacre of Iraqi civilians in the village of Haditha in 2005. Seven have been exonerated. Wuterich is the last Haditha Marine standing. Here’s the very latest on the proceedings. SSgt Wuterich’s defense team succeeded […]

Remember SSgt Frank D. Wuterich: The last Haditha Marine goes on trial

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 2, 2012 12:24 AM

“Eight Marines were charged. Seven have been cleared as the facts have been revealed. Now one more trial remains.” — Defend Our Marines Welcome to 2012. The headlines will be awash in presidential politics this week, but I want to make sure you take note of the trial of SSgt Frank D. Wuterich set to […]

Re-confirmed: John Murtha was a rotten corruptocrat

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2011 10:08 AM

It’s not news. It’s re-confirmation. Roll Call has a lengthy story out today on just-released FBI records detailing the extent of the late corruptocrat John Murtha’s dirty dealings — and how he repeatedly got away with it. The FBI and DOJ watched. And watched. And failed to act. Murtha’s entrenched incumbency made him untouchable. There’s […]

James Carville is calling Republicans “reptiles?”

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 22, 2010 01:32 PM

This Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee e-mail just landed in my e-mail box. James Carville calls Republicans “reptiles.” (Yes, the same James Carville whom wife Mary Matalin calls “Serpenthead.”) And then he urges his fellow Dems to contribute money to honor…corruptocrat Jack Murtha. I know. Nothing more needs to be said: Reptiles from James Carville dccc@dccc.org […]

Stop the Murtha-megalomania

Edifice complex.

The sun rises. Birds sing. Olbermann lies.

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 15, 2010 09:46 AM

Ugly picture, ugly picture, ha ha ha! That deranged talking head who called me a “big mashed up bag of meat with lipstick” and mocked my ethnic maiden name is suddenly concerned with public decorum. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has the pathetic video of cable clown Keith Olbermann naming me “worst person in the […]

John Murtha: Requiem for a corruptocrat

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 12, 2010 09:29 AM

Sufficient time has passed since John Murtha’s death to reckon with his true record. No tears for the wreckage, poison, and damage to the public trust he left behind. Latest news: There is a movement to install Murtha’s wife in the seat. Given the late congressman’s share-the-pork-with-friends-and-family proclivities, this is a very bad idea for […]

John Murtha dead at 77

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 8, 2010 03:45 PM

Democrat Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania passed away today at Virginia Hospital Center following gallbladder surgery last month. I’ll let my archives on his political career speak for itself. For now, condolences to the Murtha family. And I echo this message from GOP challenger Bill Russell: RUSSELL ASKS FOR PRAYERS FOR MURTHA FAMILY Announces a […]

The CYA Congress

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 21, 2009 05:30 PM

Two items from today’s CYA Congress: 1) House Democrats block Republican call for probe of Pelosi There was political theater, drama, but no surprise ending on Thursday on a topic involving spies, torture and truth in the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives. Republicans again ripped into Speaker Nancy Pelosi for accusing the CIA of misleading […]

Haditha Marine update: Lt. Col. Chessani wins another round

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 6, 2009 08:56 AM

John Murtha’s big, fat mouth is still wreaking havoc on the lives of the Haditha Marines he defamed. But the Marines keep winning in court. Yesterday’s good news from the Thomas More Law Center, which has vigorously defended the accused Marines: A government official has informed the Thomas More Law Center that the government will […]

Culture of corruption: Murtha’s nephew got $4 million in defense contracts

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 5, 2009 09:23 AM

WaPo has the story: The headquarters of Murtech, in a low-slung, bland building in a Glen Burnie business park, has its blinds drawn tight and few signs of life. On several days of visits, a handful of cars sit in the parking lot, and no trucks arrive at the 10 loading bays at the back […]

Justice Dept. attorney: Murtha should be immune from Haditha lawsuit

By Doug Powers  •  April 23, 2009 01:58 PM

It looks as if justice may once again prevail… for John Murtha. For the troops he defamed, probably not so much: A Justice Department attorney said U.S. Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., should be immune from a defamation lawsuit filed by a former Marine from western Pennsylvania. Essentially, Murtha’s attorney said the lawsuit filed in September […]

$8 million radar to nowhere

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 13, 2009 04:06 PM

Your tax dollars at work thanks to King of Pork John Murtha. Pennsylvania, why did you put this hog back in office. Why? (h/t William Amos): A state-of-the-art radar system that has sat idle for years at a local airport has never been used because there has been no one to operate it, officials said. […]

House covers Murtha’s backside

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 30, 2009 09:40 PM

Eric Zimmermann at The Hill reports tonight that the most ethical Congress ever voted again to cover corruptocrat John Murtha’s ample backside: For the sixth time, the House has rejected a resolution by Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to initiate an ethics investigation into the relationship between lawmakers at the PMA Group. This time, however, Flake […]

Corruptocrat alert: Second Murtha-tied company raided by FBI

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 9, 2009 10:05 PM

Everything Pork King Jack Murtha touches turns to political gangrene. ABC News has the latest scoop: The FBI raided the offices of a defense lobbying firm with close ties to Democratic Rep. John Murtha (Penn.), sources tell ABC News. The FBI searched the Virginia headquarters of the PMA Group in November, according to the sources, […]

The John Murtha Jihadi Correctional Facility

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 23, 2009 09:24 AM

My syndicated column today smacks Jack Murtha upside his thick head. How would he like 250 Said Ali al Shihris roaming around Johnstown, Pa.? Very much, apparently. Looks like Pennsylvania will need that National Terrorist Registry — and quick. Meantime, here’s the latest on the FBI raid of Murtha’s earmark contractors at Kuchera. *** The […]

Murtha Watch: Cut-and-run smear merchant wants immunity

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 19, 2008 01:10 PM

I had prayed before the election that I wouldn’t have to pay one more iota of attention to the pork-filled, cut-and-run smear merchant John Murtha. Our prayers, alas, were not answered. Now, this corruptocrat is trying to hide from justice in the Haditha slander lawsuits: A Marine who sued U.S. Rep. John Murtha for defamation […]

Murtha-Russell Watch: 10 percent of precincts reporting; Murtha hangs on; thank Bill Russell for his service

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 4, 2008 09:40 PM

Scroll for updates… Keep hope alive: Sigh. *** Murtha has won. Thank you, Bill Russell, for your patriotism and dedication and fearlessness. You gave the smear merchant the scare of his life. You inspired people across the country. You are not just a conservative hero. You are an American hero. Like this:Like Loading…

Weasel Murtha turns to weasel Clinton

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 3, 2008 06:30 AM

I said it before. I’ll say it again. John Murtha is running scared. Truly a sign of desperation: U.S. Rep John Murtha will be joined by former President BIll Clinton at the University of Pittsburgh in Johnstown Monday for a “Get out the Vote” rally. Doors will be open to the public at 2:30 p.m. […]

You might be a redneck if…

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 30, 2008 10:49 PM

You’ll love Bill Russell’s latest mailer, which nails John Murtha to the wall. A reader wonders why the heck Sarah Palin isn’t campaigning in John Murtha’s district with GOP true maverick Bill Russell. I already endorsed that idea — noting that a Palin/Gretchen Wilson performance of “Redneck Woman” would bring down the house. It’s not […]
