The U.S. Chamber of Commerce vs. America by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a politically entrenched synod of special interests. These fat cats do not represent the best interests of American entrepreneurs, American workers, American parents and students, or Americans of any race, class or age who believe... Read More
Beware the left-wing-funded "Main Street" Republicans by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 What do George Soros, labor unions and money-grubbing former GOP Rep. Steven LaTourette all have in common? They're control freaks. They're power hounds. They're united against tea party conservatives. And they all have operated under the umbrella of D.C. groups masquerading as... Read More
Tea Party Patriots, 9/12 groups, liberty groups, and their grass-roots supporters quickly mobilized through social media and gathered today at IRS offices nationwide to protest the chilling political witch hunts conducted by the Obama administration. They will not be silenced. And they will not stand down. Here's a photo collection from across the country: #IRSProtest... Read More

Don't stand down. Stand up and let the IRS know we won't roll over. Tuesday. At your local IRS office. Be there. Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft has details: More info from Tea Party Patriots here. Try here if first link doesn't work.
A Brief History of Slimy Dem Snoops and Dumpster Divers by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 It's always the "low-level" peon's fault, isn't it? When Democrats get caught red-handed abusing government powers and bullying their political enemies small and large, nobody at the top knows nuttin'. The buck stops...in the janitors closet or something.... Read More
Screw up, move up, repeat. Lois Lerner, the woman who confessed to inappropriately targeting limited-government groups and using the IRS to discriminate against Tea Party and 9/12 organizations, is still scheduled to receive honors from Western New England University School of Law this weekend. A tipster of mine e-mailed the school and received this response:... Read More
Yep: Of cooooourse it was "low-level workers" who will never be named or held accountable. Kudos to the Tea Party activists who first blew the whistle and to Mark Levin and the Landmark Legal Foundation, who pushed back against the Bully Brigade. Flashback 3/2012: Yes, it's about damned time. Earlier this month, I reported on... Read More
I've documented Blame Righty Syndrome countless times over the years (see here here here here). This week, the Blame Righty mob fell silent. The silence and the selectivity speak volumes. Related: ABC’s Brian Ross strangely silent about Christopher Dorner’s political views *** The Blame Righty mob falls silent by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013... Read More
This is war. But of course, for Beltway establishment strategist and GOP control freak Karl Rove, it has been war on grass-roots conservatives for years now. The New York Times reported this weekend that Rove and the deep-pocketed donors whose coffers he drained futilely this past year are doubling down on stupid. Rove, Inc. will... Read More
Here's a chilling tale of political persecution from across the pond. A loving, exemplary foster couple in England had their children taken away because of their membership in the UK Independence Party. The UKIP is a limited-government, libertarian group that opposes membership in the European Union and advocates for stricter enforcement of immigration laws. The... Read More
If you're lucky (or smart) enough to live in a state that has initiative and referenda, you face important choices tomorrow that will give you control over critical fiscal policy and limited government issues.

From reader S.S.: "I think National Empty Chair Day is a great idea. Here's mine." Just landed in Charlotte NC and was met with a massively overflowing email box of Empty Chair Day photos from around the country! A Politico reporter asked me why I was covering the phenomenon and why so many on the... Read More
The Condensed Liberal Handbook of Racial Code Words by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Thumper the Rabbit's parents always taught him, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all." If the left's self-appointed Omniscient Diviners of True Meaning have their way, conservatives in the public square won't be left with anything... Read More
The media crazy train is standing room only. As the GOP and the Right have gotten better and better at telling their stories and pushing back against progressive narratives, the gate-keepers who once held a monopoly on controlling the airwaves and printing presses have become more than unhinged. They've become completely untethered from rationality: -... Read More
There were several inspiring speeches delivered at last night's Republican National Convention. Talk of "unity" filled the air. Many GOP leaders praised the "grass-roots." But behind the scenes, the RNC power grab has exacerbated distrust between a diverse group of rank-and-file activists and party bosses. I have no patience for the Republican party-bots telling these... Read More

As you read my column below, bear in mind this new report that the Obama administration ordered that the the General Services Administration give special treatment to law-breaking Occupy protesters and dwell on the media whitewashing of the Occupy Cleveland terror plotters. If you are in the Ohio area next week, we will be calling... Read More
You wish. Big-spending former Utah Senator-turned-DC lobbyist (what else?) Bob Bennett was the first casualty of the Tea Party revolution. He surfaced on Fox Business Network earlier today to comment on the "worst Congress ever" and declared: "The Tea Party wave is receding and is not going to be as big a factor as it... Read More
Last week, I was honored to join thousands of conservatives at a rally in Dallas to support GOP Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz, whose upstart campaign has lit a Tea Party fire in his state and across the country. The runoff is tomorrow and the latest PPP poll shows Cruz with big momentum: PPP's final... Read More
Image via Zazzle Look, we all make mistakes. But the "real reporters" continue to maintain a superiority complex over the "just bloggers" that is wholly undeserved. This correction is now at the top of the ABC News report from earlier today in which a false Tea Party tie to the Aurora movie theater shooting was... Read More
If you're looking for some good summer reading, here's what I've got on my nightstand right now: FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe's new book, "Hostile Takeover." Kibbe skewers Beltway barnacles in both parties for their big-government collusion -- shedding light, for example, on both the Democrats' Solyndra boondoggle and GOP eco-follies like GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch's... Read More
Heh: The Dan Liljenquist for US Senate Campaign will be hosting a "debate" on Thursday, June 7 at 7:00pm.

It's Time for Beltway Barnacle Orrin Hatch To Go by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Six-term entrenched incumbent Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, is attacking his conservative challenger, Dan Liljenquist, over his alleged support for tax hikes in Washington. My sides ache. Liljenquist has never voted for federal tax hikes or massive entitlement spending or... Read More
In March, I asked for your help in supporting GOP Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, whose unprecedented recall election battle has been overlooked by the Republican establishment. We were able to give her a considerable boost, but Big Labor is pouring a last-minute infusion of coerced dues-funding into the coffers of her challenger. His name is... Read More
Many of my friends and readers are e-mailing me furiously tonight and the common sentiment is this: "I don't get it." "It" is this: Sarah Palin just officially threw her hat in the Utah ring on the Greta Van Susteren show and endorsed six-term Beltway barnacle Orrin Hatch over fresh-faced challenger/Tea Party-backed/acclaimed state legislator Dan...

Turncoat former Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter is on the Tea Party-bashing book tour circuit. So, naturally he showed up on MSNBC this weekend to nurse his lingering electoral wounds and speak up for the nation's endangered RINOS, squishes, and Beltway barnacles. As I first noted on Twitter yesterday, Specter spoke -- whined -- to MSNBC... Read More
I was in Indianapolis over the weekend for the Tea Party/Freedomworks rally for Richard Mourdock -- and the energy and excitement were palpable. Tonight's the night to retire three-decade entrenched incumbent Dick Lugar. Twitter's been buzzing all day with reports from grass-roots activists taking the fight to the GOP old guard -- not just at... Read More
...you better come prepared with ammunition. Tonight on Hannity, Juan Williams tried to deflect attention from the endemic violence and anarchy of the Occupy movement by talking about the "racism in some parts of the Tea Party" and "jokes about monkeys and the president." I asked him to name names. His response? 1) You find... Read More

Watch this teaser from EAGnews.org about their just-completed investigation into "the links between radical people and organizations and the 'mainstream' labor unions that have been the public face of the massive demonstrations, occupation of the capitol and recall efforts of 2011 and 2012.

This fringe chump is wielding a disturbing amount of political power to silence free-market, limited government voices. What are you doing about it? My column this week is a follow-up to last week's piece on ALEC vs. the progressive mob/corporate appeasers. Be sure to read the entire column (plus my e-mail exchanges with several cowardly...

The opposite of "novelty" Establishment Republicans are really getting unhinged by fresh, conservative voices -- especially female and minority ones -- who are on the rise. You'll recall that earlier this month, Romney supporter Ann Coulter took to ABC News to put down Sarah Palin and Marco Rubio as "novelty" candidates. Yesterday at the Utah... Read More
Well, if you've been reading this blog and my column, the outcome of today's Utah GOP convention will not be a surprise.

Orrin Hatch will now face upstart conservative entrepreneur and renowned... Read More
Real Moms of the GOP by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The authenticity of conservative women has always been under attack by radical orthodox feminists, but perhaps not as brazenly as by someone with such direct and frequent access to the corridors of the White House message machine as Hilary B. Rosen. The D.C.... Read More
As readers of this blog know, I helped spearhead one of the first Tea Party rallies of 2009 in Denver. Several hundred grass-roots conservative activists gathered on the steps of the state capitol on February 17, 2009 to protest President Obama's visit to the city for the signing of the federal porkulus bill. I posted... Read More

What do I keep tellin' ya? Entrenched incumbency is the disease. Fresh blood is the cure. GOP Sen. Olympia Snowe reads the tea leaves and decides it's time for her to go.

You'll recall that I published my first round of Senate GOP endorsements last month. As I wrote on 2/15: "While fiscal conservatives remain split over the GOP presidential candidates, grassroots activists are coalescing around a stellar slate of limited-government candidates looking to reinforce and reenergize the right in Washington." Here's another. Clark Durant is running... Read More
For Liljenquist, Mourdock, and Cruz: A Tea Party Senate takeover by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The tea party isn't dead. It's just looking down ballot.

Photoshop credit: VVM The Right twittersphere has been buzzing for the past week about planned ambushes of CPAC 2012, the annual gathering of conservatives in D.C., by the Occupier mob.

This was attached to the end of a nauseating Boston Globe article celebrating the amorous relations between Occupy protesters: Editor’s note: This story about relationships that began during Occupy Boston featured a man, Robert Stitham, who is a registered sex offender, according to state records. Had his status been discovered during reporting, the story would... Read More
Tone it down.
They just couldn't help themselves. This weekend's one-year anniversary of the Tucson massacre passed quietly and respectfully. And then femme-a-gogue Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz had to open her big mouth: How dare her. How dare her. After a year of
On December 16, 1773, the taxpayers of Boston had had enough.

Here's my Fox and Friends appearance this morning on the political news of the day. Longtime readers know I have always identified as a CONSERVATIVE first, not a Republican.
