Stop Obama's war on watchdogs by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 In the sadistic era of fraudulent Hope and Change, inspectors general inside the federal government have been kicked, neutered and starved of the authority and information they need to do their jobs. It's transparently clear: President Obama loathes and fears independent watchdogs. Accountability... Read More
Debunking Obama's bilious Baltimore babble by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 It's never enough. American taxpayers have surrendered billions and billions and billions of dollars to the social-justice-spender-in-chief. But it's never, ever enough. The latest paroxysm of urban violence, looting, and recriminations in Baltimore prompted President Obama on Tuesday to trot out his frayed... Read More
What Obama's Ferguson sermon left out by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 In his 967-word statement to the nation about the Ferguson grand jury decision on Tuesday night, President Obama devoted precisely one sentence to the risks and sacrifices police officers make to keep the peace. One. Obama delivered a tepid, obligatory acknowledgement that... Read More
Obstructionism is patriotic by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Three cheers for right-wing obstructionism. Can we have more, please, and louder? This week's unanimous Supreme Court ruling on President Obama's illegal recess appointments is a double smackdown. First, it's a rebuke against arrogant White House power-grabbers who thought they could act with absolute impunity... Read More
Vacationer Obama's favorite Vineyard "vulture" by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 It's good to be the king ... of class warfare hypocrisy. While he lectures his political opponents about their neglect of middle-class America, President Obama is headed to Martha's Vineyard. Again. Because nothing spells populist like a $7.6 million, 9.5-acre estate owned by... Read More
Yesterday, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed right-to-work legislation into law. The death threats against him are pouring in. The Left is blaming the conservative victims of union violence, as usual. The progressive climate of hate is always our fault. Today's column sets the Democrats' call for blood in the context of Obama-era union violence and... 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. But in the real world, small businesses are struggling to stay afloat as they deal with the fiscal wreckage of this administration's disastrous venture... Read More
Ohio has been called for Barack Obama. Iowa went for Obama. Colorado went for Obama. Florida and Virginia have not been called yet, but those don't look good, either. The Romney camp is disputing the Ohio call. Karl Rove on Fox News says it's not over. But the numbers don't add up for Romney. He... Read More
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
Poser of the United States: The photo-op presidency by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The official Obama 2012 campaign slogan is "Forward." The operational motto of the Obama administration is "Cheese." As in "say cheese." From hollow Greek columns to strategically released Situation Room candids, the Paparazzi President has put self-serving optics above all... Read More
Man of the people Barack Obama schmoozed 150 high-dollar Hollywood donors at the Ritz-Carlton in Los Angeles last night. Cost of admission? $25,000/plate. A transcript of his remarks is posted on the White House website. He told a new, self-aggrandizing health care tale about his life-saving powers that caught my eye. READ this and pay... Read More
(Snoop's endorsement of Obama - language warning) Rapper-turned-political analyst Snoop Dogg weighed in last week with his top 10 list of reasons he's voting for Barack Obama instead of Mitt Romney. It is, of course, filled with expletives, ad hominem, and bigotry. The list has gone viral among young voters -- because, you know, it... Read More
In advance of the new Obama donor scandal story that many conservatives have been buzzing about and which is purportedly set to hit the pages of Newsweek/Daily Beast tomorrow morning, I'm reprinting a selection of my previous blog posts over the last four years that exposed various aspects of the Obama crooked campaign cash-o-matic machine....

Desperate Dems Hide Behind Big Bird by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Mitt Romney sure ruffled a lot of feathers over his proposal to eliminate taxpayer funding for government-sponsored TV. As soon as the GOP presidential candidate singled out PBS for cuts during the presidential debate in Denver, the hysterical squawking commenced. Left-leaning celebrities... Read More
Here's my Fox and Friends post-debate analysis this morning. Enjoy:
Romney was unintimidated by President Obama. He was undaunted by lib moderator Jim Lehrer. He was in command of his facts. He was comfortable with himself. He was unafraid of his positions. He drew clear contrasts. He spoke with ease. By contrast, Obama looked down at his notes or beseeched Lehrer with his eyes and... Read More
A few debate questions for Obama that won't be asked by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Tonight, left-leaning TV anchor Jim Lehrer of government-supported PBS will moderate the first 90-minute presidential debate in Denver. The forum will focus on domestic policy. Lehrer alone will determine the topics and questions for six 15-minute segments, and... 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. GOP leaders of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee issued a related statement today on the flawed, rushed rules... Read More
Journo-tools For Obama by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Can we stop calling the hosts of the presidential debates "moderators"? They're left-erators. It's time for the old media godfathers to end the pretense that they're fair and neutral observers of the American political scene. And it's time for the GOP to stop perpetuating these... Read More
If you don't know what this Twitter trending hashtag is about, you're missing out. Get in the know at Twitchy.
I told my 11-year-old daughter about "Julia." She had one word: "Creepy." I'm doing my job right. Notice, by the way, how "progressive" women are awfully quiet about the patriarchal hegemony symbolized by Obama's faceless, dependent Julia. Cue the crickets: Chirp, chirp, chirp. *** Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be "Julia" by... Read More
Last week on Hannity, we joked about the iconography and media worship making a comeback on TV airwaves and newspaper pages. I made reference to the old "Glowbama" phenomenon of halos and light. Right on cue, here's Reuters with its magical rainbow pic from Air Force One. Click for full-size. It's been a while since... Read More
I said it the other night on Hannity and my column today fleshes out my point: The "Obama is a nice guy" narrative is a loser. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this election is not just about jobs. It's about character, values, judgment, and integrity, too. It's about the wholesale fraud that the Oba-messiah has perpetrated... Read More
So, it turns out Barack Obama ate a dog. Twitter users are having a field day. Clik here for full Twitchy coverage, laugh, and say goodbye to all the Democrat talking points about Mitt Romney's cruelty to animals. That "Mmm, mmm, mmm" Obama school chant has taken on a whole new flavor. *** Here's the... Read More
God damn! They're baaaaaack. Louis Farrakhan and Michael Pfleger, the Jew-bashing, race-hustling Friends of Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright, reared their heads this weekend. With demagogic pals like these... Er, never mind that the most recent murder-minded plotter headed toward the Capitol was a Moroccan Muslim jihadist. Watch the MSM look the other way at... Read More
You know all that Democratic talk about getting big, dirty money out of politics? Never mind. Via Reuters: National fundraising committees for the Democratic and Republican parties, President Barack Obama, and other major politicians have declined to return campaign donations totaling $1.8 million from Houston financier R. Allen Stanford, now on trial for allegedly masterminding... Read More
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. While the White House publicly pretends to ignore conservative detractors of his administration, Chief Touchy-Touchy seems to be personally consumed by... Read More
Photoshop source: Ed Driscoll The Year in Obama Scandals -- and Scandal Deniers by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 With 2011 drawing to a close, it is time to account. As an early-and-often chronicler of Chicago-on-the-Potomac, I am amazed at the stubborn and clingy persistence of President Barack Obama's snowblowers in the media. See... Read More
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 -... Read More
America's Uncle Omar problem by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 "Always remember. Never forget." The phrase is now emblazoned in red across the U.S. Department of Homeland Security website. But as the Obama administration disseminates its talking points to mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 jihadist attacks, the White House remains stone-silent about... Read More
Oh, Uncle Omar. We'll get to more of him in a moment. Over the past decade, I've reported on America's bottomless deportation abyss. After the 9/11 attacks, it finally dawned on federal homeland security officials that maybe it wasn't such a smart policy to allow 400,000 illegal aliens who had been ordered deported to remain...

There's one employee of the White House -- other than the Teleprompter of the United States, that is -- who never gets a break. His name is Pete Souza. He's the official presidential photographer. Last week, Souza was hard at work making President Obama look hard at work while vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard. Souza's Twitter... Read More
News out of the Windy City tonight: Chicago's Cardinal Francis George has at long last suspended prog nutball Rev. Michael Pfleger. Pardon my language, but it's about damned time. The Chicago Tribune reports: I've tracked Pfleger's shenanigans over the past three years (see archive here) and provided a handy summary of his appalling record more... 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...

1/5 update As anticipated, a WH announcement on Daley's chief-of-staff appointment is imminent, according to wire reports breaking this morning. On Fox & Friends, I discussed my column on Daley -- and reacted to Karl Rove's assertion that Daley is a "centrist" here. Update II: White House just announced that they'll formally unveil Daley Machine... Read More
I've noted Islamic attacks on Coptic Christians at home and abroad dating back to 2005 and Good Friday 2006. The latest wave of violence came over the New Year's Day holiday in Egypt and follows increased Muslim persecution of Christians in Nigeria, the Philippines, Baghdad, and across the Middle East: For Christians in the Middle...

"...the September 11th of world diplomacy."
No American should take joy, pleasure, or satisfaction from the untold, devastating ways in which the coordinated Wikileaks document dump of hundreds of thousands of State Department cables -- nearly half of which are "secret" or "classified"-- has undermined U.S. diplomacy. Here's the left-wing Guardian of London crowing that its publication of the cables has... Read More
Washington swamp creature Newt Gingrich gets the dumb D.C. advice of the day award. In an interview with CBN's David Brody, he says that permanent vacationer Barack Obama needs to spend more time away from the Beltway to "reflect." Really: The last two years have taught us an unmistakable fact about Obama: He doesn't give... Read More
This is exactly why I said to take his olive branch and shove it. Three days after the shellacking that shook America, President Obama's idea of "taking responsibility" is to blame voters for not understanding his message. See, it's not that he didn't get it. It's that we didn't get it. And off to Asia... Read More
Here's my post-election column. I'll continue to update the results post here as we wait on key AK, WA, CO, AZ, and Florida returns. The grass-roots conservative midterm message: No surrender, no compromise, no capitulation.

The trillion-dollar stimulus, the trillion-dollar TARP bailout, the trillion-dollar Obamacare mandate, the $50 billion auto bailout, weeks of taxpayer-subsidized jobless benefits, and all the vaunted promises of hope and change weren't enough to keep this man off the streets of Chicago, kneeling before the fallen Obamessiah, praying for salvation: The photo of the man begging...

Phoning it in.
So, Obama showed up to a $30k +/person fundraiser last night and told his wealthy Democrat friends that he needs his batteries recharged. Again! The Examiner: Guess he wants to add some Italian scenery to his "Recove
How privileged Democrats pay for their houses by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2010 Like millions of Americans, Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell has had trouble covering her mortgage and other bills over the years. Her opponents consider this a scandal of disqualifying proportions. But there's a bigger disgrace: It's all the sanctimonious Democrats... Read More
How would the Founding Fathers react to the fall of the constitutional republic and the rise of Barack Obama? Artist Jon McNaughton puts it on canvas. Watch the video (I especially appreciate the criticism of Obama's predecessor implicit in the clip and painting. As I've observed many times, the Big Government Republican paved and pre-socialized...

Chicago BFFs.
University of Chicago Medical Center top executive Dr. Eric Whitaker is a busy, busy man. Here's a rundown of his schedule since his Chicago pal Barack Obama moved into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: *Golfed with Obama on his December 2008 Hawaii vacation; *Played hoops with Obama during a three-day getaway to Chicago in February 2009; *Attended...

My column today puts the DISCLOSE debacle in the broader context of the Democrats' reign of darkness. Underscoring the theme of theme of the column: The story from Fox Business on how the "financial reform" bill championed by Obama exempts the SEC from FOIA requests. The transparency farce continues. Always look under the Astroturf mat.... Read More
The Obama White House policy experts are all for health care cost-controls. They just don't want to have to defend themselves in any public forum under oath -- especially when the people in charge of allocating scarce resources have openly championed government-run health care as a wealth redistribution Trojan Horse overseas. In his usual mode... Read More
MichelleMalkin.com readers have answered the call of duty! Last night, inspired by reader Duke, I put out a call for NASA logo redesign Photoshops to mock Team Obama's Muslim-pandering makeover of the space program. Entries are pouring in to my mailbox.

The Obama vampires strike again. My latest column focuses on the White House evasion of public disclosure rules through off-site lobbyist meetings at D.C. coffee houses. But first, here are some handy Team Obama transparency-sabotaging reminders for you drawing on Culture of Corruption and the mountain of previous blog posts here that have documented Team...

Let's blow this pop stand! White House budget director Peter Orszag is reportedly on his way out in July. He'll depart from the Beltway with a beautiful ABC News reporter on his arm -- and an ever-swelling ocean of debt at his feet. Mission accomplished! Orszag is headed to an
