John McCain Understands the Frustrations of ‘Occupy Wall Street’

By Doug Powers  •  October 12, 2011 09:07 PM

**Written by Doug Powers When it comes to political menopause, John McCain leads the pack in hot flash mood swings. He’s drafted amnesty bills with Ted Kennedy; chosen Sarah Palin as his running mate; insulted the Tea Party; done 180 degree election year turnarounds to appease conservatives; and now he’s kinda-sorta down with Occupy Wall […]

By Doug Powers  •  May 9, 2011 11:20 AM

**Written by Doug Powers Thank goodness the Dodd-Frank bill took care of the problems, eh? From Reuters: Mortgage finance giant Fannie Mae (FNMA.OB) on Friday said it would ask for an additional $8.5 billion from taxpayers as it continues to suffer losses on loans made prior to 2009. The largest U.S. residential mortgage funds provider […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 5, 2011 02:38 AM

1/5 update As anticipated, a WH announcement on Daley’s chief-of-staff appointment is imminent, according to wire reports breaking this morning. On Fox & Friends, I discussed my column on Daley — and reacted to Karl Rove’s assertion that Daley is a “centrist” here. Update II: White House just announced that they’ll formally unveil Daley Machine […]

Culture of corruption: Maxine Waters ethic trial delayed

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 19, 2010 02:31 PM

With Charlie Rangel’s ethics trial out of the way, it’s one wrist-slap down, one to go, for the Dems. But it looks like fellow Congressional Black Caucus member and entrenched race hustler Maxine Waters will have a little more time to wait. The House Ethics panel says in a statement released this afternoon that new […]

Bush nostalgia: Let’s not get carried away, ok?

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 9, 2010 10:04 AM

As you all know, President George W. Bush is on his book/rehabilitation tour — hitting every MSM and cable news show from the Today Show to Hannity, plus Oprah, Rush Limbaugh, and beyond. His candor, decency, self-effacement, and clear love of country stand in stark contrast to the current antagonist-in-chief at the White House, so […]

The Democrats’ Countrywide scandal: Shhhhhh

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 18, 2010 11:43 AM

Blink and you probably missed it. In yet another classic Friday news dump, Countrywide junk mortgage mogul and Democrat crony Angelo Mozilo copped a $67.5 million plea to avert a high-stakes public trial in the heat of the midterm election season. He and his henchmen admitted no wrongdoing: Just days before the start of his […]

What the hell: How stealth banking bailout reached Obama’s desk; Update: Here comes the first O-veto; White House: We’ll work on it

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 7, 2010 10:31 AM

Scroll for updates… Both the left and right sides of the blogosphere are buzzing about a bipartisan TARP-style banking bailout bill that somehow reached President Obama’s desk in the legislative rush before Congress adjourned for the midterm election break. The sordid episode underscores everything I’ve spotlighted about the culture of corruption over the last two […]

ACORN Watch: New HUD IG report details counseling grant scams

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 01:54 PM

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti My reporting on ACORN’s housing counseling grant rip-offs go back to April 2008, when I spotlighted the left-wing mortgage counseling racket. As bad as the ACORN/Obama alliance is, I’ve pointed out several times that this mess festered under the Bush administration and a GOP ruling majority. Now, GOP Rep. Daryl Issa […]

How about this pledge: “I will not swallow any more crap sandwiches”

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 09:24 AM

Making pledges is easy. Keeping them? Not so much. Just ask Mr. Hope and Change. The new GOP pledge is fine as far as it goes — especially the upfront acknowledgment that government’s powers derive from the consent of the governed, not from the penumbras emanating from the fingertips of all President Obama’s czars. But […]
