Mrs. Obama's Operation VA Scandal Distraction by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Barack and Michelle Obama are quite the diversionary tag-team.

In case you needed a refresher course, here's a look at some of the top members of the Hope and Change-minted team that the Beltway reformer-in-chief brought with him four years ago. Barack Obama's Chicago-marinated culture of corruption brought us $16 trillion in debt, trillion-dollar porkulus, Obamacare, and edujobs slush funds, heightened national INsecurity, and... Read More
While her hubby flies around the Hurricane Sandy disaster zone in South Jersey to look presidential and leader-like on the taxpayer's dime, the missus is getting busy urging supporters to "dig a little deeper" and donate money...to the campaign. Michelle -- I know we ask you to do a lot, and I cannot tell you... Read More
First Lady Michelle Obama takes the stage at the DNC in Charlotte tonight. Like the fabulist-in-chief, she will spin many self-contradictory policy tales that simultaneously blame the previous administration for all of her husband's persistent woes while peddling grand fantasies of how much better off America is after sinking further into debt, corruption, and a...

Obamacare's Patient-Dumping, Privacy-Meddling Scheme by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The stench of Chicago cronyism over the White House just got fouler.

Mr. and Mrs. Cranky Pants by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 So, it turns out that the cool cat billed as "No Drama Obama" by his sycophants is actually quite the drama queen.

So this just arrived in my e-mail box tonight from the other Michelle: Michelle -- As I have traveled across the country, I have had the privilege of meeting incredible women from all walks of life.

In her latest flexing of federal "Let's Move" muscle, First Lady Michelle Obama has strong-armed several major restaurant chains into re-designing their menus to her exacting healthy standards.

Teach Me How to Dougie! One of the members of the rap group that came up with the 2010 one-hit wonder "Teach Me How to Dougie" died in a drive-by shooting this weekend. He went by the moniker "M-Bone." The First Lady Michelle Obama was recently seen doing the Dougie at a "Let's Move" event... Read More
The busybody hand of Michelle Obama looms large. New target: Jell-O, Fruit Loops, and that evil of evils...Minute Maid Lemonade. Via the NYTimes, meet the war (or rather, kinetic action -- h/t chap) on dyed foods: After staunchly defending the safety of artificial food colorings, the federal government is for the first time publicly reassessing... Read More
Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own... Read More
President Obama just completed a news conference this morning. In sum, he "continues to believe he is right" about job-killing tax hikes; insists, like a Disney automaton, that he is the Captain of the Industries of the Future and will punish "energy sources of the past" (the oil and gas you are presently putting in...

Another Big Labor/Big Gov pet project comes up for a vote in the House today. The federal child nutrition bill will get an up-or-down vote after wrangling on both sides of the aisle. It will be paid for through cuts in the food stamp program, which the White House promises Dems it will repay. Ha.... Read More
Goodbye, Susan Sher. Hello, Tina Tchen. Readers of Culture of Corruption are already familiar with the name "Susan Sher." Sher is Michelle Obama's old boss at the University of Chicago Medical Center (where they worked together on the infamous patient-dumping scheme no one wants to talk about) and a former Mayor Richard Daley attorney. She... Read More
My column today is a rejoinder to Maureen Dowd's plaintive wail about Republican Mean Girls in the NY Times on Sunday. I'll take a GOP mama grizzly who wants government to leave you alone over a Democrat bully bureaucrat any day. As yesterday's failed attacks on Sarah Palin, Christine O'Donnell, and Sharron Angle showed, the... Read More
Ask not what your prayer circle can do for you. Ask what your prayer circle can do for my husband. In an interview to rally black voters on the Tom Joyner Show, Michelle Obama chose some rather odd words to motivate black voters of faith. Transcript via Black America Web: "Keeping the spirits clean around... Read More
Following in her do-nothing, Nobel Peace Prize-winning husband's footsteps, First Lady Michelle Obama scooped up a laughably undeserved honor today: Forbes Magazine named her the "most powerful woman in the world." How nice to see her husband spread the wealth in the Era of Post-Achievement. Let's review. Mrs. O failed to clinch the Chicago Olympics... Read More
My column spotlights the cronies and fat cats that First Lady Michelle Obama will raise money for over the next few weeks as she attempts to maintain her "I'm you!" populist pose. Among her first beneficiaries: Shady banking buddy Alexi Giannoulias, who just announced yesterday that he's bailing on a scheduled debate -- as the... Read More
Lots of last-minute rebukes of Team Obama on Capitol Hill to report as Congress adjourned for the midterm elections break. The Senate gave the president the back of the hand on recess appointments. And now we learn that House Democrats rejected the First Lady's aggressive push to fund her anti-childhood obesity/union payoff campaign by raiding... Read More
Insatiable.
I spotlighted the $26 billion BigGovJobs' union payoff bill that President Obama signed into law last week -- a payoff that was achieved through elaborate money-shuffling, including taking $12 billion from the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Now comes word via The Hill that the Dems are going to double-dip into the food stamp program... Read More
Thumbs down.
Team Obama is playing the "private citizen" card again to create a bubble of political protection around the profligate, policy activist First Lady. We've seen it before. When conservatives challenged Mrs. O's caustic 2008 campaign trail statements disparaging America and fear-mongering for votes, her hubby invoked the "civilian" shield. He threatened Republicans to "lay off... Read More
Sacrifice.
Doug Powers gave you the heads-up last month about the First Lady's lavish Spanish adventure. She touched down yesterday with her youngest daughter, dozens of friends, and phalanx of government bodyguards in tow. The luxury resort of Marbella rejoiced -- and our hapless State Department blanched -- as she embarked on her first "walkabout" clad... Read More
How, um, thoughtful. First Lady Michelle Obama is gathering card signatures for her husband's upcoming birthday. Presumably, this will make up for Mrs. Obama's absence on hubby's birthday. She won't be there to celebrate because, as you know, she'll be vacationing (again!) on your dime in Spain. (Laura Ingraham, whose Obama Diaries tops the NYTimes... Read More
My syndicated column today takes on the First Lady's hypocritical war on junk food. You can find the White House obesity task force report that lays the groundwork for Mrs. Obama's nutritional power grab here. Or as White House aide Melody Barnes puts it: "It will serve as a roadmap for the work we need... Read More
Big Mommy Michelle Obama launched her childhood obesity campaign in February by dragging her daughters' BMIs into the public spotlight and carrying water for the SEIU's legislative agenda. What's next? Aggressive government pressure on, and policing of, food advertisers. Here they come: The review by the Task Force on Childhood Obesity says one out of... Read More
The First Lady is headed to Mexico City to meet with her counterpart there and discuss "youth engagement." WaPo's fashion writer Robin Givhan performs her usual East Wing press release service disguised as journalism: In embarking on her first solo trip, Obama is following an agenda that her staff will describe only in the broadest... Read More
Three words: Boo-freaking-hoo. Didn't take long to play the woman card and the race card, did it? I see an NAACP "National Treasure" Award in Desiree's future...
Liberals are funny. Everything is a "national security" issue to them...except, well, national security. Global warming is a national security issue. Health care reform is a national security issue. And now, First Lady Michelle Obama is pushing her anti-obesity platform as a national security issue. Via CNSNews (hat tip: Doug Powers): At a ceremony at... Read More
Cede the children, feed the state.
My column looks beyond the obsequious and superficial headlines about First Lady Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign -- and shows you which left-wing forces are driving her aggressive public policy initiative (so aggressive, as I noted the other day, that she paraded her poor daughters' body mass index in public for the cause). Remember: Big Government... Read More
Hey, whatever happened to leaving the Obama girls alone? Hasn't stopped POTUS and FLOTUS before. Flashback: Leave Obama’s kids alone…except when POTUS & FLOTUS need them for Obamacare
Phony fruits from a phony administration.
My column today uses the little Iron Chef-fuffle episode to examine the White House's much larger phony fruit basket. The seeds of Candidate Barack Obama's transparency pledges have instead yielded bottomless backroom deals. Here's the big lie about the Cadillac tax exemption for Big Labor. The Dems say the tax will take effect in 2018.... Read More
Veggie-Gate!
They stage their health care town halls. They hand out lab coats to make their doctor donors look authentic. They treat soldiers as "pretty good photo ops." So, this Iron Chef revelation about Michelle Obama's produce is entirely in keeping with Obama Theater: For months, the Food Network ran ads about a forthcoming episode of... Read More
Back on June 12, I detected Michelle Obama's fingerprints all over the Americorps IG scandal and flagged the First Lady's former chief of staff-turned-Americorps senior adviser, Jackie Norris. So, this is no surprise via Byron York: Congressional investigators looking into the abrupt firing of AmeriCorps inspector general Gerald Walpin have discovered that the head of... Read More
"Let the good times roll."
White House social secretary Desiree Rogers makes her grand entrance at last week's White House State Dinner... ...while grifter couple Michaele and Tareq Salahi snuck in the back and circumvented security to gain access to President Obama... Readers of this blog and of Culture of Corruption are already quite familiar with Desiree Rogers. She's the... Read More
Here's the First Lady's latest video pitch for Obamacare aimed at women: Nope, still no mention of the mother of Dontae Adams, one of the minority patients on Chicago's southside shipped out of the University of Chicago Medical Center under the patient-dumping program spearheaded by Mrs. Obama, Valerie Jarrett, and David Axelrod. FLOTUS skates again.... Read More
Last night, it was Michelle Obama shunning the hostile and dangerous territory of South Carolina. Today, Bookworm Room notes this San Francisco Chronicle column item reporting that President Obama is hiding from the leftists in San Francisco: The White House's fear of protests from Code Pink and other left-wingers has put the brakes on President...
