Sponsors of Anarchy by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 Hoodlums will be out in full force this Inauguration Day weekend. Count on it. I've covered the left's criminal anarchist element for more than 20 years -- from the animal rights terrorists who have harassed, threatened and firebombed scientific researches across the U.S. and Europe...

Colorado's anti-fracking crack-up by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 If a pair of extreme green ballot measures fall in the Rocky Mountains and no one in the liberal media is paying attention, does the collapse make a sound?

Leo DiCaprio's dirty dollars by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 Actor-playboy Leonardo DiCaprio walked away from a fender bender in the Hamptons this weekend without a scratch.

The pick confirms that a Clinton presidency would not only be Barack Obama's third term... Read More
Tale of 2 tribes: "Climate refugees" vs. EPA victims by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 The left has concocted a lucrative category of politically correct victims: "climate refugees." It's the new Green racket. U.S. taxpayers will now be forking over untold billions to ease the pain allegedly inflicted on "carbon's casualties" by industrial activity.... Read More
What is Obama's top population control freak hiding? by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 The most transparent administration in American history is at it again -- dodging sunlight and evading public disclosure.

Obama's toxic Environmental Pollution Agency: Sexual predators, toxic dumps & data stonewalls by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 Here in my adopted home state of Colorado, orange is the new Animas River thanks to the blithering idiots working under President Obama's Environmental Protection Agency. It's just the latest man-caused disaster from an out-of-control bureaucracy... Read More
Holy hypocrisy and hot air by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 Unlike Pope Francis, I believe that air-conditioning and the capitalists responsible for the technology are blessings to the world. Perhaps the head of the Catholic Church, who condemned "the increasing use and power of air-conditioning" last week in a market-bashing encyclical, is unaware... Read More
The Environmental Corruption Agency by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 The lofty motto of the Environmental Protection Agency is "protecting people and the environment." In practice, however, EPA bureaucrats faithfully protect their own people and preserve the government's cesspool of manipulation, cover-ups and cronyism. Just last week, Mark Levin and his vigilant Landmark Legal... Read More
While environmental propagandists celebrate peace, love, and Earth Day today, here's a reminder -- from my 2001 column on Earth Day co-founder and emcee Ira Einhorn -- that not all eco-pacifists practice what they preach. A killer in P.C. clothing by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate July 25, 2001 A BEAUTIFUL young woman vanishes. For months,... Read More
Screw up, cover up, move up, pack up. After trampling the rule of law, defying court orders, doctoring scientific conclusions, threatening the media for asking inconvenient questions, and destroying countless jobs in the name of environmental protection, President Obama's loathsome cowboy Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is finally headed for the exit door. The Denver Post... Read More
The Interior Department is on a roll -- a steamroll over American jobs at the expense of common sense, sound science, and integrity in government. Earlier this week, I called attention to the 9.6 million acre land grab masquerading as a northern spotted owl rescue that will cost thousands of timber-related jobs, while subsidizing the... Read More
Obama the Job-Killing Owl-Killer by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Welcome to the pretzel logic of liberal environmental protection: In order to "save" owls, the Obama administration is going to shoot them dead. This is not -- I repeat not -- an Onion parody. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, the White House released a big... Read More
Up in smoke
ManBearPig just won't quit. According to new e-mail documents I've obtained, global warming cultist Al Gore continues to pressure an independent videographer for his stunning footage of a fire tornado in the Australian outback. You may recall that in September, Chris Tangey of Alice Springs Film and Television had rejected Gore's request to use the... Read More
The Hope-a-Nomics Disaster: One Company's Horror Story by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 President Obama promises to move the country forward with his recycled pledge of five million green jobs.

Hmmmm. We told you yesterday about stimulus-subsidized eco-boondoggle A123's debt default announcement bankruptcy filing. Turns out it was elaborately orchestrated to induce a rescue by another big green energy interest: Hmmmm. Under the deal, Johnson will get A123’s automotive business assets, includin
I told you about $250 million stimulus-subsidized battery maker A123 back in March. Recap: While President Obama was busy lambasting Big Oil tax breaks on Thursday, yet another one of his environmental welfare recipients (the very kind he wants to redistribute oil subsidies to) was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. Who needs to win... Read More
If it's a day that ends in "y," it's a day of trouble for an Obama green loan recipient somewhere in America. Like Mitt Romney said during the debate last week, the crony-in-chief doesn't just pick winners and losers, he picks the losers: Doug Powers and I continue to chronicle the world of failed, federally-funded... Read More
Doug Powers and I have tracked failed green boondoggle after failed green boondoggle for you over the past four years, including Colorado's own Abound Solar. The company went bankrupt in June despite $70 million in federal DOE loan guarantees. A tipster notes that the auction for Abound Solar began this week. He writes: "The listings... Read More
Photoshop credit: Doug Ross My column today looks at the latest radical maneuver by the Obama administration -- slipped through yesterday while much of the media's attention was on Hurricane Isaac and the RNC convention.

Last week, I reported on the ongoing shenanigans of President Obama's rogue Interior Department.

Yesterday, GOP Sen. Jim DeMint announced on his Senate website that he had enough votes to kill the notorious Law of the Sea Treaty: 4 additional senators have joined in opposition to LOST, including Mike Johanns (R-NE), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Rob Portman (R-OH) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA). With 34 senators against the misguided treaty, LOST... Read More
Obama's Interior Department still going rogue by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The Obama administration's loathsome cowboy, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, won't take no for an answer. He's been smacked down repeatedly by federal courts for imposing a draconian, junk science-based moratorium on the oil and gas industry. Yet, the job-killing zealot and his... Read More
Global warming blame-ologists play with fire by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Good news: The Waldo Canyon fire, which forced 32,000 residents (including our family) to flee, claimed two lives and destroyed 347 homes, is now 100 percent contained.

High Park Fire, image via InciWeb My fellow Coloradans have endured a terrifying and miserable summer so far. Wildfires have ravaged the state. Thousands have been evacuated. Open burning has been banned. Air quality is oppressive. Dry weather and strong winds aren't helping the front-line personnel trying to contain the blazes. And the season has... Read More
Obama's Land of the LOST by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 What's green and blue and grabby all over? President Obama's new pressure campaign for Congress to ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). The fight over LOST goes back three decades, when it was first rejected by President Ronald Reagan.

Jaczko the Jerk: Harry Reid's sexist crony gets the boot by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The embattled chair of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission resigned this week.

My column today follows up on yesterday's House Natural Resources Committee release of internal Interior Department Inspector General e-mails detailing the continued White House obstruction and cover-up of Team Obama's drilling moratorium data manufacturing.

Somehow, this makes perfect sense. The poo-flinging White House wants to convert chicken manure to energy. Yes, really: A White House Business Council roundtable headed by U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Rural Utilities Service Administrator Jonathan S. Adelstein was held here Friday at Cambridge International. Improving economic conditions and creating jobs in the "Green... Read More
Like I said last week: "Tyrannical actions, of course, speak louder than weasel words. And the record shows that Obama’s environmental overlords run amok." The latest corruptocrat throws himself under the bus: But while the "Crucify them" guy is gone, his bosses and their "crucify them" ethos are still hard at work at the White... Read More
"Crucify them:" The Obama Way by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 One of President Obama’s radical eco-bureaucrats has apologized for confirming an indelible truth: This White House treats politically incorrect private industries as public enemies who deserve regulatory death sentences.

Eco-scams are as easy as "A123" by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 While President Obama was busy lambasting Big Oil tax breaks on Thursday, yet another one of his environmental welfare recipients (the very kind he wants to redistribute oil subsidies to) was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.

Photoshop source Obama's algae racket by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Pond scum stinks.

The high priests of eco-destruction by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Rick Santorum is right.

Scrutiny... Read More
It was all For The Planet, of course. Global warming zealot Peter Gleick, in the name of defending "rational debate," committed flabbergasting fraud to try and bring down the free-market Heartland Institute. He's finally 'fessed up. But the Heartland Institute is going to fight for its reputation and for justice -- in court. From the... Read More
A flack for Media Matters for America, the Soros-backed one-trick GOP-bashing pony, sent an e-mail peddling the group's latest anti-Keystone XL "study" to the Senate Democrats' communications director at the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Mary Kerr.

Official White House photo The Land of Obama Make-Believe by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Where did President Obama go after killing off thousands of Keystone XL pipeline construction and manufacturing jobs?

Refresher: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called congressional Republicans who want up-or-down drilling votes "hand maidens of the oil companies." Let's call Pelosi what she is: House... Read More
The Accountability Charade by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 You can't spell "accountability" without "A," "C" and "T." But in Washington, government officials routinely get away with "taking personal responsibility" by mouthing empty words devoid of action. Heads nod in collective agreement that mistakes were made. But heads never roll. The Obama administration has... Read More
Scroll down for latest updates... The Great Stonewall of Obama by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 The White House laments that America hasn't built enough massive government infrastructure projects. Nonsense.
