Obama administration cracks down on Iran-tied mosques, NYC property; Update: Alavi Foundation donates Korans to prison inmates

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 12, 2009 07:59 PM

Interesting. Not sure whether this is the Obama White House response to criticism that it has been soft on jihad, but the timing is noteworthy. (Okay, thought about it. Yes, I’m pretty sure it is p.r.-driven.) Continuing an investigation it — ahem — inherited from the Bush administration, Obama officials have moved to seize four […]

Obama hand-holds Huffington Post blogger, snaps at dissident reporters

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2009 01:28 PM

I noted on Twitter and in my live-blog of Obama’s press conference that the president called on/coached HuffPo’s Nico Pitney in an obvious, pre-planned question on Iranians communicating through social media and the Internet. The question itself was unobjectionable and Obama’s response was so bland and rambling I don’t remember it. But what was noteworthy […]
