How to wipe the smirk off Stephen Colbert’s face

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 19, 2011 11:06 AM

Hollyweird, meet reality. The WSJ has a must-read op-ed exposing how liberal comedian Stephen Colbert’s campaign finance gag blew up in his face. In an attempt to protest the Supreme Court’s ruling last year striking down major portions of the speech-stifling McCain-Feingold campaign finance law, Colbert set out to form a political action committee and […]

US Chamber of Commerce Responds to US Chamber of Unemployment

By Doug Powers  •  October 12, 2010 09:18 AM

**Written by Doug Powers As far as I’m concerned, a response to the White House’s desperate “foreign donations” accusations wasn’t entirely necessary, because the claims are merely intended to rattle the cage of a Democrat base feeling beaten down, hopeless, changeless and progressiveless, but the Chamber of Commerce responded anyway: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce […]

Newly nativist Democrats and their own foreign funny money

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 11, 2010 04:40 AM

(Photoshop credit: Sean via Doug Powers) The Obama White House has been an echo chamber for the Soros-funded Center for American Progress from Day One — from bashing Fox News, attacking talk radio, and pimping “media justice” and the Orwellian Fairness Doctrine, to crusading for the government health care takeover using Astroturfed doctors and taxpayer-funded […]

The Orwellian DISCLOSE Act vote; Update: GOP holds the line, Harry Reid foiled again

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 02:22 PM

Thanks to all of you who helped with Operation Buck Up Maine and phoned Sens. Snowe and Collins to hold the line against the special interest, speech-squelching DISCLOSE Act. The Senate is now voting on the do-over cloture motion. (It failed to muster 60 votes in July. Cloture vote 57-41.) GOP Leader McConnell assailed the […]

Once more: Stop the special-interest, speech-squelching DISCLOSE Act

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2010 11:21 AM

They won’t take no for an answer. So we have to give them both barrels again. On July 27, the Senate voted down the Democrats’ union-friendly, loophole-ridden, Orwellian-titled DISCLOSE Act. The bogus campaign finance reform bill was, as Sen. Mitch McConnell put it, a “transparent attempt to rig fall elections” that was written “behind closed […]

Hide-and-seek hypocrites on the Hill

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 28, 2010 02:37 AM

My column today puts the DISCLOSE debacle in the broader context of the Democrats’ reign of darkness. Underscoring the theme of theme of the column: The story from Fox Business on how the “financial reform” bill championed by Obama exempts the SEC from FOIA requests. The transparency farce continues. Always look under the Astroturf mat. […]

Stop the special-interest, speech-squelching DISCLOSE Act; Collins, Graham oppose, Snowe is a no; McConnell blasts Dem attempt to “rig fall elections;” Update: DISCLOSE Act fails on 57-41 cloture vote

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 27, 2010 11:38 AM

The union-friendly, loophole-ridden, Orwellian-titled DISCLOSE Act comes up for a cloture vote in the Senate this afternoon. It appears doomed. But take nothing for granted. It passed the House in June. This is a relief: Squishy GOP Sen. Susan Collins announced she’s a no vote: The legislation exempts some politically powerful, large membership groups like […]

Supreme Court decimates McCain-Feingold campaign finance law; Update: Citizens United reacts to victory

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 21, 2010 10:54 AM

Many of you may remember a scathing documentary by Citizens United about Hillary Clinton from 2007. I blogged about it at the time here. The film became the center of a huge legal battle over the free-speech-stifling McCain-Feingold campaign finance scheme. Parts of the law were struck down by the Supreme Court when the Wisconsin […]

The cronies, czars & corruptocrats at Obama’s first state dinner

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 25, 2009 12:15 PM

If you want breathless, celebrity tabloid treatment of the first Obama White House state dinner — who wore what, who came with whom, what they ate — go somewhere else. This is a closer look at the cronies, czars & corruptocrats whom Obama wined and dined last night. – SEIU president/top White House visitor Andy […]

Obama’s computer security police

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 29, 2009 11:52 AM

So, the president is going to tell us who his computer security czar soon. Let’s hope it’s not the same person who ran the Obama campaign’s grossly insecure online credit card donation operations.

Demo-crook wrist slap of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 18, 2009 07:45 PM

Regular readers will remember Mauricio Celis. Guest-blogger See-Dubya was on the Friend of Hillary’s trail in January 2008, tracked his Mexican money laundering ties and bizarro police impersonation antics, and reported on his indictment. Today, he was re-sentenced to 10 years’ probation for impersonating a lawyer. It’s the Demo-crook wrist slap of the day: A […]

Repeat campaign finance scofflaw Soros gets away with it again

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 13, 2009 11:43 AM

In my column on the SEIU today, I mentioned how the George Soros-funded group, Americans Coming Together, was hit with a $775,000 fine by the Federal Election Commission – the third largest civil penalty levied in the panel’s history — for gross campaign finance violations. Yesterday, in little-noticed news, California’s campaign finance panel fined Soros […]

How to file an FEC complaint against “Specter for the Cure”

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 5, 2009 03:23 PM

Arlen Specter’s campaign finance travesty deserves more than just mockery. It deserves action. Here are screenshots of his misleading “Specter for the Cure” website, which is a slimy front to raise campaign funds: And the fine print buried at the bottom of the home page: Here is how you file an FEC complaint. Here are […]

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 […]

What should Obama do with his $30 million campaign surplus?

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 6, 2008 12:02 AM

He’s got gobs of cash and lots of grumbly Democrats who want to get their paws on it all. Legally, he can: 1) donate the extra money to charity 2) Transfer it to another political campaign 3) Dole it out in $2,000 increments to local candidates. What to do? What to do? Democrats carrying significant […]
