Out: Pass This Jobs Bill! — In: We Can’t Wait!

By Doug Powers  •  October 24, 2011 01:17 PM

**Written by Doug Powers “Pass this jobs bill” has been abandoned in favor of something with a little more urgency: “We can’t wait!” It’s called “We can’t wait” because “Who needs Congress” sounded too brazen. From CBS News: With Republicans continuing to stall action on President Obama’s $447 billion jobs bill, the White House is […]

While you were sleeping: Sneaky midnight-hour Senate moves; EduJobs rejected, Commerce nominee/solar subsidy mogul approved, Fannie/Freddie loan limits increased

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 21, 2011 02:11 AM

Yes, I’m still awake. Up at 4am this morning and still going. Got home after a speech in Denver late tonight to find that the Senate (going on 900 + days without a budget) was up to all sorts of stealthy business in the midnight hour. As of 1:28am, the Senate was casting procedural votes […]

Snortalicious: Chicago corruptocrat/Fannie fat cat William Daley wears Occupier costume

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 17, 2011 01:56 PM

Looks like every last Obama administration official is dressing up as an Occupier for Halloween — no matter how ridiculous the costume looks. Chicago corruptocrat, former JPMorgan Chase banker, and Fannie Mae crony William Daley is the latest to step out in drag. They’ll do anything, say anything, wear anything. Trick or treat! White House […]

Quick and dirty debate after-report: Perry is running out of gas; Excuses, excuses

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 11, 2011 11:01 PM

To be fair, if you and I had to be up on stage with Charlie Rose and Karen Tumulty, we’d be soporifically stupefied after a few minutes, too. But then again, we’re not running for the highest office in the land and raising millions of dollars from people across the country who are counting on […]

An illustrated guide: The homes Kamp Alinsky Kids won’t protest

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 11, 2011 10:39 AM

You knew it was coming. The Kamp Alinsky Kids are taking a sight-seeing tour today. After a month of trashing Zuccotti Park at a public cost of $2 million per day, the riff-raff is marching uptown to occupy…wealthy people’s private homes. According to the NY Daily News: “A ‘Millionaires March’ will visit the homes – […]

Government Loans to Nowhere

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2011 11:04 AM

(Click to watch) Well, another House hearing on Solyndra came and went this morning. In another Great Moment Of Transparency in the Age of Obama, the Solyndra execs took the Fifth as promised. The Democrats’ erstwhile chief inquisitor and witch hunter of Capitol Hill, Henry Waxman, demonstrated his trademark chutzpah by complaining that the GOP […]

FOX News/Google GOP 2012 debate: The “Obama lite” label and venture socialism; Updated: Wrap-up, winners, losers

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 22, 2011 07:31 PM

Graphic via FoxNews.com The latest GOP 2012 debate starts at 9pm Eastern tonight on Fox news. GOP Rep. Thad McCotter dropped his quixotic, redundant bid today (really, how many pro-bailout, pro-health care entitlement expansion Republicans do we need in the race), so he’s off the schedule. Taking his place: Libertarian Gary Johnson. Yep, another quixotic, […]

Saturday quick takes: *Sarah Palin is set to speak in Iowa shortly (estimated time – 2:15pm ET). You can watch live here on C-SPAN. She is reportedly going to tackle crony capitalism. The timing couldn’t be better. *It’s not news to readers of this blog that green jobs are a hemorrhaging taxpayer-funded slush fund for […]

Plumbing the rest of the Perry record

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 18, 2011 01:20 PM

Yesterday, the Washington Post asked me to comment on conservative concerns about Texas GOP Gov. Rick Perry’s records. Here is what I told them in full: “The Gardasil debacle is just one of many concerns a wide range of grass-roots conservative activists have about Perry’s record as governor. He’s soft on illegal immigration despite a […]

Dodd-Frank: The Beltway Industry Full-Time Employment Act

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 22, 2011 09:30 AM

I’m the corruptocrat more responsible for creating the banking meltdown conditions. No, I am! My column marks the one-year anniversary of Dodd-Frank’s passage. Go back and look at my overview post from a year ago. It’s all come true, of course. And more. The fight on Capitol Hill to curb the law’s power-grabbing Consumer Financial […]
