Who will vet the First Lady? 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 […]
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 […]

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Wanna get depressed instantly? Read this. And an even more depressing reminder: Only 14 Senate Republicans opposed Obama’s massive expansion of the national service boondoggle. God save us from bipartisanship.
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 […]
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, […]
Scroll down for updates…Balzano and other SEIU executives in Allentown PA quit over Boy Scout thuggery… Photoshop credit: American Power My column today provides context for the SEIU bullying of Boy Scouts in Allentown, Pa. As you’ll see, there’s a long history of Big Labor thuggery against volunteers who threaten the union racket. On a […]
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 […]
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 […]
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti The volunteerism scandals Hollywood won’t be broadcasting by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2009 Hollywood hearts Obama. Obama hearts government-directed national service. That is why you won’t be able to change the TV channel all week without getting lectured about the need to get off the couch and Do Something. (After […]

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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
(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 […]
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 […]
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Well, well, well. Michelle, Michelle, Michelle. Guess where the First Lady will be on Monday? Why, she’ll be delivering the keynote address at the 2009 National Conference on Volunteering and Service in San Francisco. And who is co-sponsoring the conference? Why, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS)! Yes, that’s […]
Waste. Fraud. Abuse. SHHHHHH!
Culture of corruption.
