By Michelle Malkin  •  November 8, 2011 02:29 PM

Last month, an appalling sports sex abuse scandal hit a little close to home when a national gymnastics coach tied to decades of molestation charges involving young girls was banned from the sport — and a Colorado Springs gym operator who was also a convicted sex offender was forced to resign after employing the banned […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 10, 2011 10:07 PM

This is the column I filed 10 years ago on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Below it, I’ve included the 2004 Republican National Convention remarks of the late actor Ron Silver — a Hollywood liberal turned Hollywood hawk who died too soon. Before he passed in 2009, he delivered powerful speeches on his post-9/11 awakening that […]

Quake alert: Shake, rattle, and roll!

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 23, 2011 02:03 PM

There is a disturbance in the Force. Last night before midnight Colorado time, I tweeted that I felt the earth shaking in my hometown of Colorado Springs. It was a 5.2-5.5 magnitude temblor — the largest Colorado has seen in more than 40 years. Just now, the Twittersphere lit up with reports of a large […]

Uplifting video of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 3, 2010 11:31 AM

As the wife of a long-distance runner, I’ve seen my fair share of amazing stories and races. This one about California high school runner Holland Reynolds, who collapsed at her state cross-country meet just two yards from the finish line and crawled to the end to clinch a team championship, has to rank near the […]

Terror in the skies: UPS planes targeted; Updated

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 29, 2010 11:32 AM

Scroll for updates… Looks like there has been a coordinated attack on UPS planes worldwide today. Reports are breaking on a Yemen-Chicago plane stopped in London with a bomb on board. Planes also pulled over in Newark and Philadelphia. Wild guess: It wasn’t planned by a Catholic or Mormon network. (Sarcasm off.) Which MSNBC host […]

Things That Make Me Use (expletive!) Expletives

By mmguestblogger  •  June 10, 2010 08:05 AM

I mentioned last week that I was having trouble writing anything without having to lace the piece with four-letter words and, thus, the reason for my being on hiatus at my blog home Babalú. Well, this week is no different. In fact, my potty-mouthing would be much worse than before. So, without offering much by […]

Fire and Brimstone, Dogs and Cats Living Together

By mmguestblogger  •  June 4, 2010 12:14 PM

I think I have just crossed over to some weird, psychedelic dimension. Surely, this must be a sure sign of the armageddon. The end must be nigh. I find myself agreeing with this: President Obama can give hundreds of speeches, trying to reconcile contradictions that are irreconcilable … dreaming of the magic of his well-articulated […]

Want to see the nine scariest words in the English language today? Yes? Try this on for size: “Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism.” It’s not enough that we can arguably state that the guy sitting in that oval office at 1600 Pennsylvania today was basically put in there by the Mainstream […]
