THE MOONBATS LOSE

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 6, 2006 10:20 AM

Good news just in via Breitbart/Reuters: A unanimous U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday that universities that get federal funds must allow military recruiters on campus, even if their law schools oppose the Pentagon’s policy prohibiting openly gays and lesbians from serving. The high court upheld as constitutional a federal law dating back to 1994 […]

END-OF-THE-YEAR LISTMANIA

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 22, 2005 11:15 AM

*AP names Hurricane Katrina its top story of the year. Can’t argue with that. The rest of the top ten: 2: PAPAL TRANSITION: John Paul II’s death marked the passing of the first non-Italian pope in 455 years and ended a 26-year pontificate, third-longest in history. In a remarkable show of affection, many millions attended […]

THE TROUBLE WITH HARRIET

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 20, 2005 08:39 AM

I have stayed away from the depressing and divisive subject of Harriet Miers for a few days. It was a healthy little respite. But things have taken yet another grim, embarrassing turn–and it is becoming increasingly difficult to imagine that this nomination will make it to the scheduled Nov. 7 Senate hearing date. First, if […]

PATRICK LEAHY DOES A SCOTUS FLIP FLOP

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 21, 2005 11:18 AM

August 17, 2005: Sen. Patrick Leahy says Supreme Court nominee John Roberts holds “radical” views and has been an “eager, aggressive advocate” for policies of the far right. While stopping short of announcing his opposition to the appointment, the Vermont Democrat’s written statement Tuesday was by far the most critical he has made since President […]

JOHN ROBERTS VS. THE BLOVIATORS

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 14, 2005 08:42 AM

Ankle Biting Pundits has a statistical analysis of senatorial bloviation and a recap of yesterday’s SCOTUS nomination hearing. Excerpt: Everyone knows Senators love to hear their own voices and that the confirmation hearings are supposed to be about John Roberts’s views, not theirs. But of course that’s not the case. A little experiment proved that. […]

THE JOHN ROBERTS SHOWDOWN

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 12, 2005 07:24 AM

The SCOTUS nomination hearings for John Roberts begin today. This will not surprise you: GOP U.S. Sens. Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe have indicated support for Supreme Court nominee John Roberts, but both have yet to come out and say they would definitely vote for him. Here’s a handy SCOTUS vocabulary guide. 10 likely questions […]

THE ROBERTS NOMINATION

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 5, 2005 09:29 AM

Washington’s gearing up for SCOTUS nominee John Roberts’ hearings on Tuesday. A few handy links: – Bush nominates Roberts to fill Rehnquist’s shoes. The president met with Roberts in the private residence of the White House for about 35 to 40 minutes on Sunday evening, then officially offered him the job at 7:15 a.m. Monday […]

WHY DO WOMEN EARN LESS THAN MEN, OR DO THEY?

By mmguestblogger  •  August 22, 2005 08:03 AM

Last week there was a brief flurry of interest in the idea of comparable worth – the idea that the law should require that women and men working similar jobs should earn the same salaries. This idea was popular in the 1980s as feminists tried to get legislation passed to erase what they saw as […]

NARAL SCAPEGOATS, DEMS WHINE

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 13, 2005 09:50 AM

Tigerhawk examines fallout from NARAL’s aborted smear ad against SCOTUS nominee John Roberts. The group’s communications director has “resigned”, and as Tigerhawk notes: I find it hard to believe that NARAL’s communication director would quit in the teeth of a nomination battle without having been pushed out. It is a virtually certainty that NARAL gave […]

THE ABORTION CROWD GOES NUTS

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 10, 2005 08:31 AM

In Opinion Journal this morning, Manuel Miranda nails loony NARAL for its inexcusable attack ad against SCOTUS nominee John Roberts: The ladies who gave Plato’s “noble lie” new uses in the hearings of Clarence Thomas are at it again. NARAL is using the image of the abortion clinic bombing by Eric Rudolph to suggest that […]

DUMPING ON THE NYT’S DUMPSTER DIVERS

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 5, 2005 10:57 AM

Intense reaction to the N.Y. Times’ journalistic dumpster diving into the sealed adoption records of Supreme Court nominee John Roberts’ two young children continues to pour in. Here’s a sample of the letters I’m getting. Won’t it be interesting to see whether the Times letters page bothers to print as many? From Reader Jeff K: […]

THE ROBERTS NOMINATION: PARODY UNTO ITSELF

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 25, 2005 10:43 AM

The Left’s opposition to John Roberts is getting so ridiculous (see Bench Memos, Power Line, Charmaine Yoest, The Corner, and John Cornyn’s website, among others, for background), that it’s almost beyond spoofing. John at Wuzzadem takes a stab–and scores.

WASHINGTON POST SINKS TO A NEW LOW

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 22, 2005 07:48 AM

Time and again, Washington Post Style reporter Robin Givhan hides behind fashion snarking and culture reporting to savage conservatives. She did it with Katherine Harris and Dick Cheney and John Bolton–and I’m sure you can remember many more examples of partisan mockery. Well, today’s conservative-bashing Style commentary sinks to the lowest low. The piece, “An […]

THE SON, THE SMIRK, THE SICKOS

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 20, 2005 01:09 PM

So, last night during the SCOTUS press conference, you may have noticed the facial expressions of President Bush and John Roberts’ wife. Glenn Reynolds did. So did the readers at Daily Kos. Why the faces? Because John Roberts’ adorable little son decided to break dance during the momentous event. Dirty Harry has the hilarious photos. […]

SCOTUS WATCH: ANN WEIGHS IN

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 20, 2005 11:09 AM

Trust you’ve seen the Drudge flash on fearless Ann Coulter’s comments about John Roberts. Ann’s full piece is up at her website. It’s titled “Souter in Roberts clothing,” and concludes: He has given us a Supreme Court nomination that will placate no liberals and should please no conservatives. Maybe Roberts will contravene the sordid history […]

SCOTUS WATCH: HYPERVENTILATION AND SIGHS OF RELIEF

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 20, 2005 08:56 AM

On the left, the NYTimes editorial board warns that if it doesn’t get a Sandra Day O’Connor clone, we will all end up breathing dirty air, working in salt mines, and handing over our children to do slave labor! Mark Coffey reacts to the NYT’s editorial here. Meanwhile, Manuel Miranda, who launches a SCOTUS column […]

SCOTUS WATCH: ROBERTS FILE

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 19, 2005 08:10 PM

Tony Mauro of the Legal Times reported in February 2005 that SCOTUS nominee John Roberts’ votes “have mainly fallen on the conservative side, but not always:” Last December, in United States v. Mellen, Roberts ruled in favor of a criminal defendant who challenged his sentence in a fraud case. Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson — yes, […]

SCOTUS WATCH: THE GUESSING GAME

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 19, 2005 06:29 PM

***See update: John Roberts*** So, it’s not Clement. Then who? The others: There was early speculation about Judge Edith Clement of the U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans, but Republicans indicated later she was not the nominee. Another female candidate thought to be under consideration was Edith Hollan Jones, who serves on the same […]
