Libya: Rebels take Tripoli, Gaddafi on ice

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 21, 2011 08:39 PM

Scroll for updates… It’s been six months since Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi gave his “I am still in charge” speech, ranted about rats and drugged-up children, and appealed to his “son” Barack Obama for help. Now, it finally appears Libyans are done with him — freedom-fighters are celebrating across the Twittersphere, though the identity of […]

Gaddafi: Shot or not?

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2011 03:17 PM

Global rumors that Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi has been shot roiled the markets this afternoon. Oil prices tumbled $2 a barrel. The White House says it has “no reason to believe” Gaddafi is dead. But given how CIA director Leon Panetta gets his intelligence — quick, get him the TV remote control! — there’s no […]

Murderous madman Gaddafi blames U.S. — and drug-addled youth “rats”

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 22, 2011 11:31 AM

Loony-tunes dictator Muammar Gaddafi refused to step down in a trademark bizarro Libyan TV address this morning. He babbled hysterically about druggie kids instigating terror, blamed American planes for bombing innocent civilians, and ranted about the devil. He blamed the unrest on “cowards and traitors” who were seeking to portray Libya as a place of […]

Gadhafi’s Fairly Unconvincing ‘I’m Still in Charge’ Speech Setting

By Doug Powers  •  February 21, 2011 11:34 PM

**Written by Doug Powers (Note: Everybody spells his last name differently, so I’m going to spell it a different way each time it’s mentioned and hope I get it right at least once) The situation in Libya with Gaddafi continues to deteriorate: Deep rifts opened in Moammar Gadhafi’s regime, with Libyan government officials at home […]

Uprising in Egypt; Update: Mubarak, Barack speak/spin; video added; White House releases leadership photo

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2011 11:55 AM

An iconic Egyptian protest image reminiscent of Tiananmen Square, via the Telegraph… And another iconic photo via Twitpic (click on photo for full size)… They’re calling it “Angry Friday.” Protesters in Egypt may have been cut off from the Internet, but information will always find a way to free itself. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is […]

The global Muslim holiday jihad on Christians — and more Obama moral equivalence

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 3, 2011 02:38 PM

I’ve noted Islamic attacks on Coptic Christians at home and abroad dating back to 2005 and Good Friday 2006. The latest wave of violence came over the New Year’s Day holiday in Egypt and follows increased Muslim persecution of Christians in Nigeria, the Philippines, Baghdad, and across the Middle East: For Christians in the Middle […]

Naturally: Jimmy Carter Among Nominees for China’s First ‘Peace Prize’

By Doug Powers  •  December 7, 2010 11:50 PM

**Written by Doug Powers The Chinese government isn’t too happy with the Nobel Peace Prize recipient this year: Since Liu Xiaobo’s selection, China has vilified the 54-year-old democracy advocate, called the choice an effort by the West to contain its rise, disparaged his supporters as “clowns,” and launched a campaign to persuade countries not to […]

The U.S. Department of Blame America First

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 19, 2010 03:37 AM

The new State Department mascot Today’s syndicated column builds on my weekend post about Foggy Bottom foghorn Michael Posner. If you thought the State Department’s handling of Posner’s Arizona-bashing, China-pandering couldn’t get worse than ignoramus P.J. Crowley’s clueless defense yesterday, think again. As Allahpundit points out, Posner is in full spin cycle, playing the “taken […]

Who is Michael Posner, and why is he apologizing to China?

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 17, 2010 03:41 AM

Actually, I phrased the title question wrong. Question: Who the hell is Michael Posner, and why the hell is he apologizing to China?! Answer: Michael Posner is the former head agitator at the transnationalist Human Rights First, who represents the textbook State Department mindset of pandering to the worst America-bashers without hesitation or shame. Foggy […]
