By Michelle Malkin  •  August 8, 2018 12:34 AM

Oklahoma’s wretched record on wrongful convictions by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 “Frontier justice” costs too many citizens of all races, creeds, and backgrounds their freedom and their lives.

Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part Two

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 18, 2017 03:55 PM

Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part Two by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2017 In Oklahoma City, words don’t mean what they plainly mean. Asking government officials simple questions prompts Orwellian acrobatics. By distorting language and obfuscating actions, public bureaucrats subvert transparency and evade accountability.
