We can't afford another four years of Obama's tax cheats, crooks & cronies

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 5, 2012 10:15 AM

In case you needed a refresher course, here’s a look at some of the top members of the Hope and Change-minted team that the Beltway reformer-in-chief brought with him four years ago. Barack Obama’s Chicago-marinated culture of corruption brought us $16 trillion in debt, trillion-dollar porkulus, Obamacare, and edujobs slush funds, heightened national INsecurity, and […]

Introducing “Oba Mao!”

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 19, 2009 01:47 PM

The latest in Commie Chic: “Oba Mao” t-shirts! Nope, not manufactured by RAAAACIST Tea Party protesters. Manufactured in China and sold by the Chinese for the rest of the Citizens of the World. Mao-cheerleading White House communication director Anita Dunn has already put in a special order (via Breitbart TV): *** On a related note, […]

A peek at a federal employee’s spam e-mail from Team Obama

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 8, 2009 10:44 PM

Here’s the e-mail of the day, from a beleaguered federal employee at the Commerce Department. Thanks to the e-mailer for giving us a revealing glimpse into the bowels of the spam-happy, appointee-overrun Obama bureaucracy. Michelle, I work for the Department of Commerce as a federal employee…and am getting rather fed up with what I have […]

Unshocked by Gary Locke

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 20, 2009 07:04 AM

Flashback: Locke with Chinese president Hu Jintao. I reported extensively on former Washington state governor Gary Locke’s extensive China ties, conflicts of interest, and questionable judgments– all documented well before Locke “sailed through” his confirmation hearing with help from apathetic or clueless Republican senators. Now comes word from Shanghai, via the WSJ, that Gary Locke […]

Obama Census Plan: No Illegal Alien Left Behind

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 3, 2009 09:41 AM

My column today spotlights the radical re-shaping of the electoral landscape by the Obama and Company census conspirators. The immediate agenda of the left-wing census volunteer groups: freezing immigration raids. The long-term goal: Exploiting the massive population of illegal aliens to redraw the political map and secure a permanent ruling majority. As I’ve long argued, […]

Chinagate-tainted Gary Locke “sails through” confirmation hearing

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 19, 2009 10:08 AM

I really don’t want to hear it later from Senate Republicans if Commerce Secretary nominee Gary Locke gets himself in an ethics mess after he’s approved. Washington has been warned — not just by me, but by many other close observers of the former Washington state governor who have followed his career marked by sloppy […]

The whitewashing of Gary Locke — and why Tucker Carlson deserved to be booed

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 27, 2009 07:58 AM

I was amused to read about Tucker Carlson’s finger-wagging to conservatives at CPAC yesterday — apparently repeating the canard that the Right doesn’t do reporting like the vaunted New York Times and needs to stop “just analyzing things based on what the mainstream media has reported.” Yeah, he really said we need to copy the […]

New York Times whitewashes Gary Locke's ethics/campaign finance scandals

And yet more reasons Gary Locke is another Obama mispick

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2009 02:24 PM

From the left-leaning Seattle Weekly, which has long documented Locke’s cronyism: Of course, there was that memory loss and all those “I don’t recall . . . I don’t remember” statements to Congressional investigators in 1999, probing his gubernatorial campaign fund-raising efforts; the astonishing $3.2 billion tax break he gave to Boeing while never disclosing […]

The Chinagate/Buddhist temple cash skeletons in Gary Locke's closet

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2009 09:53 AM

Is it possible for Barack Obama to pick a Commerce Secretary nominee who’ll actually make it past first base? Bill Richardson withdrew in the midst of a pay-for-play scandal. Judd Gregg withdrew in the midst of a humiliating power play over the Census and porkulus bill. Now, former Democrat Gov. Gary Locke — a lawyer […]
