Obamacare cronyism: The First Lady’s patient-dumping, privacy-meddling scheme

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 16, 2012 08:56 AM

Obamacare’s Patient-Dumping, Privacy-Meddling Scheme by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The stench of Chicago cronyism over the White House just got fouler. Inhale this: A shadowy $10 billion Obamacare agency with zero oversight just awarded first lady Michelle Obama’s pet patient-dumping scheme at the University of Chicago Medical Center a $5.9 million taxpayer-funded grant.

Here’s who Democrat hitwoman Hilary Rosen visited at the White House, including at least 5 POTUS meetings

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 12, 2012 10:57 AM

White House visitor logs show that Hilary Rosen, the DC lobbyist/Anita Dunn colleague who attacked Ann Romney’s stay-at-home-mom status on CNN last night, visited 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. at least 35 times. (Remember: White House logs are an inaccurate measure of ACTUAL White House visits, as liberal media outlets/watchdogs themselves have reported and as I’ve reminded […]

Michelle’s “Women for Obama” versus Obama’s women

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 14, 2011 11:38 PM

So this just arrived in my e-mail box tonight from the other Michelle: Michelle – As I have traveled across the country, I have had the privilege of meeting incredible women from all walks of life. From young women paying their own way through college, to moms working the extra shift to keep food on […]

So much for Obama’s “womanly leadership,” eh?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 20, 2011 10:51 AM

Seems like only yesterday the White House was basking in the glow of worldly feminists effusing over the president’s Grrrl Power governance. Flashback: Chaudhury: The criticism of the Obama administration seems to be particularly “male,” you know? When you say ‘why aren’t you fighting back, why aren’t you policing?’ I think we’ve been talking about […]

Obama’s Ministers of Culture and Agitprop

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 20, 2011 11:23 AM

On July 6, I told you about all the well-heeled spinners in the White House Office of Public Engagement. Their ranks keep on swelling. My column today introduces you to the newly-designed “America’s Champions of Change for the Arts.” Yes, it’s as creepy as it sounds. *** Obama’s Ministers of Culture and Agitprop by Michelle […]

Chicago shuffle in the East Wing: Meet Mrs. O’s high-powered, Soros-friendly bundler-turned-chief of staff

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 16, 2010 10:13 PM

Goodbye, Susan Sher. Hello, Tina Tchen. Readers of Culture of Corruption are already familiar with the name “Susan Sher.” Sher is Michelle Obama’s old boss at the University of Chicago Medical Center (where they worked together on the infamous patient-dumping scheme no one wants to talk about) and a former Mayor Richard Daley attorney. She […]

Today marks the 9th day of jury deliberations in the Blagojevich corruption trial. Early in their deliberations, the jurors asked the judge for a full transcript of the trial, including the prosecution’s closing arguments, which provided a comprehensive road map of the 28 counts and corresponding evidence against Blagojevich and his brother. The judge denied […]

Valerie Jarrett: Hurray for Obama’s “womanly leadership”

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 15, 2010 06:00 AM

It’s moronic exchanges like this one between White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and rambling Indian magazine editor Shoma Chaudhury — who slobbers all over President Obama for his “womanly” leadership — that should make every rational woman cringe. First, there’s the nauseating gender identity politics pandering. Second, there’s the snort-worthy detachment from reality (the […]

The Astroturf Presidency

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 25, 2010 03:18 AM

Who is Ellie Light? I predict you’ll start seeing the question as a popular bumper sticker soon (a la “Who is John Galt?”…and voila, someone has already made a t-shirt!). It’s a handy rhetorical rejoinder the next time the White House or your nutroots neighbors and co-workers try to tar the Tea Party or any […]

Snort-worthy spectacle of the day: Valerie Jarrett decrying “extreme” GOP

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 1, 2009 12:15 PM

Yes, the woman who bragged about recruiting Marxist rabble-rouser Van Jones is lambasting conservatives for spurning radical leftist ACORN/Big Labor embracer Dede Scozzafava: White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that the rise of a Conservative Party challenger in a closely watched upstate New York House election shows that the […]

There’s a new website dedicated to exposing White House senior adviser/Chicago consigliere/real estate mogul Valerie Jarrett. Call her out. Policing Obama’s culture of corruption takes eternal vigilance.

How do you spell wealth redistribution? Tax-increment financing

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 1, 2009 10:00 AM

When I worked in Seattle covering corporate welfare and city government, I became strange bedfellows with a diverse alliance of libertarians on the right and Ralph Naderites on the left who oppose “public-private partnership” deals between developers and statist Democrat AND Republican politicians. These “public-private partnership” scams inevitably involve tax-increment financing gimmickry to siphon off […]

FLOTUS: Chicago needs Olympics because American kids are fat; Plus: The Jarrett whitewash

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2009 10:16 PM

Michelle Obama wants you to know that the all-out Chicago Olympics bid is not for The Cronies. It’s for…The Children! Especially, says Mrs. O, the fat children: We need all of our children to be exposed to the Olympic ideals that athletes from around the world represent, particularly this time in our nation’s history, where […]

Olympics Crony Watch: Let the games begin

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2009 11:00 AM

Last week, I spotlighted Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama’s collaborative efforts to push their mentor, friend, and former employer Chicago mayor Richard Daley’s bid to bring the Olympics to Chicago in 2016. From now until Oct. 2, when the International Olympic Committee votes on the decision in Copenhagen, I’ll keep tabs on all the Chicago […]
