A brief history of slimy Dem snoops and dumpster divers

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 15, 2013 04:42 AM

A Brief History of Slimy Dem Snoops and Dumpster Divers by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 It’s always the “low-level” peon’s fault, isn’t it? When Democrats get caught red-handed abusing government powers and bullying their political enemies small and large, nobody at the top knows nuttin’. The buck stops…in the janitors closet or something. […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 14, 2013 07:41 PM

Screw up, move up, repeat. Lois Lerner, the woman who confessed to inappropriately targeting limited-government groups and using the IRS to discriminate against Tea Party and 9/12 organizations, is still scheduled to receive honors from Western New England University School of Law this weekend.

Obama IRS admits witch hunt against Tea Party, patriot groups

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 10, 2013 11:02 AM

Yep: The Internal Revenue Service is apologizing for inappropriately flagging conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS unit that oversees tax-exempt groups, said organizations that included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their applications for tax-exempt […]

The Blame Righty mob falls silent

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 8, 2013 09:05 AM

I’ve documented Blame Righty Syndrome countless times over the years (see here here here here). This week, the Blame Righty mob fell silent. The silence and the selectivity speak volumes.

Kneel before Zod! GOP control freak Karl Rove launches new effort to snuff out Tea Party

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 4, 2013 10:02 AM

This is war. But of course, for Beltway establishment strategist and GOP control freak Karl Rove, it has been war on grass-roots conservatives for years now. The New York Times reported this weekend that Rove and the deep-pocketed donors whose coffers he drained futilely this past year are doubling down on stupid. Rove, Inc. will […]

Foster care outrage: The criminalization of political dissent, British edition

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 26, 2012 11:44 AM

Here’s a chilling tale of political persecution from across the pond. A loving, exemplary foster couple in England had their children taken away because of their membership in the UK Independence Party. The UKIP is a limited-government, libertarian group that opposes membership in the European Union and advocates for stricter enforcement of immigration laws. The […]

From reader S.S.: “I think National Empty Chair Day is a great idea.

The Condensed Liberal Handbook of Racial Code Words

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 31, 2012 02:10 AM

The Condensed Liberal Handbook of Racial Code Words by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Thumper the Rabbit’s parents always taught him, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.” If the left’s self-appointed Omniscient Diviners of True Meaning have their way, conservatives in the public square won’t be left with anything […]

RNC Derangement Syndrome and the demise/dementia of the neutrality posers

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 30, 2012 11:29 AM

The media crazy train is standing room only. As the GOP and the Right have gotten better and better at telling their stories and pushing back against progressive narratives, the gate-keepers who once held a monopoly on controlling the airwaves and printing presses have become more than unhinged. They’ve become completely untethered from rationality: – […]

RNC power grab: the aftermath

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 29, 2012 12:39 PM

There were several inspiring speeches delivered at last night’s Republican National Convention. Talk of “unity” filled the air. Many GOP leaders praised the “grass-roots.” But behind the scenes, the RNC power grab has exacerbated distrust between a diverse group of rank-and-file activists and party bosses. I have no patience for the Republican party-bots telling these […]

Revisiting the DHS Smear of the Tea Party Movement

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 10, 2012 10:15 AM

As you read my column below, bear in mind this new report that the Obama administration ordered that the the General Services Administration give special treatment to law-breaking Occupy protesters and dwell on the media whitewashing of the Occupy Cleveland terror plotters. If you are in the Ohio area next week, we will be calling […]

Sore loser: Big Guv Repub Bob Bennett declares “Tea Party wave is receding”

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 31, 2012 07:54 PM

You wish. Big-spending former Utah Senator-turned-DC lobbyist (what else?) Bob Bennett was the first casualty of the Tea Party revolution. He surfaced on Fox Business Network earlier today to comment on the “worst Congress ever” and declared: “The Tea Party wave is receding and is not going to be as big a factor as it […]

Last week, I was honored to join thousands of conservatives at a rally in Dallas to support GOP Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz, whose upstart campaign has lit a Tea Party fire in his state and across the country. The runoff is tomorrow and the latest PPP poll shows Cruz with big momentum: PPP’s final […]

Blame Righty impulse blows up in media faces…again

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 20, 2012 11:41 AM

Image via Zazzle Look, we all make mistakes. But the “real reporters” continue to maintain a superiority complex over the “just bloggers” that is wholly undeserved. This correction is now at the top of the ABC News report from earlier today in which a false Tea Party tie to the Aurora movie theater shooting was […]

If you’re looking for some good summer reading, here’s what I’ve got on my nightstand right now: FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe’s new book, “Hostile Takeover.” Kibbe skewers Beltway barnacles in both parties for their big-government collusion — shedding light, for example, on both the Democrats’ Solyndra boondoggle and GOP eco-follies like GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch’s […]
