It’s Michelle vs. Michelle, Round 2. *** Michelle Obama’s “Civilian” Act Is Hard To Swallow by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The first lady of the United States is on a whirlwind publicity tour for her hefty new food and gardening book ($30), which the White House hopes […]

Ugh: Greta and Sarah Palin rally behind Tea Party poser Orrin Hatch

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 19, 2011 05:48 AM

I just read a very bizarre blog post about entrenched incumbent Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch by Fox News anchor Greta van Susteren and then watched an equally distressing interview van Susteren conducted last night with Sarah Palin regarding Hatch. First, the title of van Susteren’s blog post: “Is someone trying to manipulate the UTAH Tea […]

Chart h/t Doug Ross America, the Dependent by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 So much for the new era of fiscal responsibility. The federal government’s dependency drones have been spared the chopping block. After vowing to eliminate funding for President Obama’s bloated $6 billion AmeriCorps social justice army, House Republicans retreated — and will […]

Culture of Corruption: Michelle Obama edition

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 14, 2009 03:59 PM

Back on June 12, I detected Michelle Obama’s fingerprints all over the Americorps IG scandal and flagged the First Lady’s former chief of staff-turned-Americorps senior adviser, Jackie Norris. So, this is no surprise via Byron York: Congressional investigators looking into the abrupt firing of AmeriCorps inspector general Gerald Walpin have discovered that the head of […]

Doing the digging the dinosaur media won’t do

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 23, 2009 02:35 PM

Big Government has a treasure trove of ACORN docs dumped to cover the criminal racket’s tracks before Jerry Brown launched a pretend probe. The Washington Examiner’s Byron York has the goods on the Americorps IG scandal and exploding sex scandal involving Obama crony/Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson, DC schools chief Michelle Rhee, and Team Obama. Hey, […]

SEIU thugs lash back over Boy Scout debacle

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 19, 2009 10:59 AM

On Monday, I spotlighted SEIU thuggery in Allentown, Pa., over a Boy Scout’s volunteer work. SEIU’s Nick Balzano threatened to file a grievance when a teenager pursuing his Eagle Scout badge contributed too much free labor clearing walking paths and improving his neighborhood. The story, first published in The Morning Call, was picked up by […]

Americorps watchdog smeared. Now, he’s cleared. Over to you, Obama.

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 11, 2009 12:28 PM

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti The White House railroaded and smeared Americorps watchdog Gerald Walpin. Now, Walpin has been cleared of any wrongdoing in his pursuit of taxpayer fraud and abuse by Obama crony mayor of Sacramento, Kevin Johnson. The Obama FBI has conveniently shut down a probe of Johnson’s fiscal shenanigans, of course. (Just like […]

Obama’s Sept. 8 speech to schoolchildren

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 1, 2009 01:06 PM

President Obama told a student reporter last month that he would be making an address to schoolchildren on September 8: ServiceWire has the announcement and broadcast schedule for the speech. The Daily Paul picked up the story last week and linked to teachers’ manuals pegged to Obama’s address, which have now been linked on Drudge. […]

Look who’s hijacking 9/11

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 24, 2009 11:06 AM

Matthew Vadum reports that Obama’s left-wing allies are preparing plans to re-brand 9/11 as a national service/eco-zealot propaganda day. Really: The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of […]

The perfect Americorps candidate?

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 3, 2009 04:32 AM

Maybe Michelle Obama will hire this grievance-mongerer to replace the fired Americorps inspector general. Via the NYPost: She has given new meaning to a class-action lawsuit. Trina Thompson gave it the old college try, but couldn’t find work. Now she thinks her sheepskin wasn’t worth her time, and is suing her alma mater for her […]

IG-Gate: Still smoldering

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 14, 2009 09:56 AM

Stacy McCain updates the story that the Obama administration wants to go away: “We’re not there yet,” one Democratic source on Capitol Hill said last week, when asked about the prospect for hearings on the Obama administration’s firing of AmeriCorps inspector general Gerald Walpin. Congressional investigators are still conducting interviews in the case, so the […]

Two disappearing acts, one tabloid circus

(See update on Sanford fiasco here…) So, South Carolina GOP Gov. Mark Sanford disappeared and the story of where the hell he has been keeps changing. Yes, it’s weird. Disturbingly weird that he would vanish on Father’s Day weekend and leave his wife and four sons in the dark. It’s weird and creepy and something’s […]

Calling her what she is

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2009 10:02 AM

The left-wingers don’t like anyone who calls Michelle Obama what she is — the First Crony. Media Matters is up in arms over my chat with America’s Morning News anchors Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin last week about the First Lady’s meddling in the AmeriCrooks scandal. Here’s what I said: *** And as expected: No […]
