Beware Soros-Funded Hijacking of US Census by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2019 "Are you a U.S. citizen?" Only in self-defeating, sovereignty-eroding America is the idea of asking whether people living in America are American citizens for the American census a matter of controversy. On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on whether the... Read More
CBS4-Denver investigative reporter Brian Maass has the scoop: Hey, remember when President Obama told Americans to stay away from Vegas...twice? Flashback: "When times are tough, you tighten your belts. You don't go buying a boat when you're trying to pay your mortgage. You don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you're trying to...

The latest jobless numbers are out. Unemployment remains stuck at 9.5 percent -- with employers shedding 131,000 jobs in July. Private sector employers added 71,000 (less than the private sector payroll additions in June); 143,000 Census workers were let go. The WSJ reports: The jobless rate, which is calculated using a separate household survey, held... Read More
That's the jobless rate reported today. Morning Bell calls it "a recovery only Washington could love." Ed Morrissey: The Census hiring crutch once again helped prop up the numbers. (Be sure to review my
Add this one to the mountainous, taxpayer-subsidized pile -- from my home state of Colorado, via 9News: The U.S. Census Bureau spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on promotional items used to convince more people to mail back their census forms, but a 9Wants to Know investigation found thousands of the items were dropped off,...

"A stand for racial and economic justice."
You're not going to believe this. Never mind. You'll believe it. The radical entitlement-mongers at the "Center for Constitutional Rights" are suing the Census Bureau for barring criminals from getting a piece of the Census boondoggle action. CCR is on a fishing expedition to find minorities who've been denied temporary Census jobs because of arrest... Read More
Lib-talker Bill Press is not only a liar. He's a silly harridan. And he proves the point I've been making since last year about the Left's criminalization of dissent over the census. First, Press grossly distorts what Erick Erickson of RedState said about the census. Via Human Events: At Tuesday’s White House press briefing, Bill... Read More
My syndicated column today responds to Karl Rove's latest Census PSA and spreads the word about what census workers have been e-mailing me about their politicized, profligate jobs. On a related note: D.C. Leader Calls on Illegal Immigrants to Fill Out Census for Taxpayer-Funded Resources. Stoking the "I want mine" culture of entitlement on your... Read More
I'm continuing with our ongoing series of insider e-mails from Census workers. (Part One is here, Part Two is here). It's worth keeping these accounts in mind as you read news of the unemployment figures today: A common theme from the Census workers who've written in is the directive from their managers to slow down,... Read More
Looks like this will become a regular series. Yesterday, I published an e-mail from a Census worker outlining the waste and inefficiency at his government job. Another Census employee in Texas writes in to confirm those details and shares his own experience: I wanted to confirm the email regarding the census. I also participated in... Read More
If even half of what this anonymous reader who e-mailed about his experience as a Census worker is true, imagine the squandering of tax dollars taking place on a mass scale. Crikey. Hi, Michelle: I would first like to apologize for stealing your tax dollars, but if it wasn't me, it would be someone else.... Read More
I'm still on semi-vacation, but the Left never takes a break from falsely accusing the Right of fomenting hatred and violence through political speech. The MSM never takes a break from whitewashing leftist intolerance, death threats, and extremism -- and engaging in selective reporting (or rather, non-reporting) of the long history of leftists' manufacturing of...

Mark Krikorian is fighting back against Census form race politics and urging you to do the same:
Photo via Seattle Times I've got another story to add to my Census taxpayer waste files. In addition to the gold-plated Super Bowl ads and cross-country caravans, billion-dollar kiddie propaganda, and multiculti p.r., you can now add government-sponsored Census fortune cookies to the pile. Really. Via the Seattle Times (h/t My Two Census): Next time... Read More
Photoshop: Leo Alberti The Census educrats are urging your schools to turn your kids into government cheerleaders -- literally. Johnny may not be able to add, but he'll be able to root loudly for his right to federal funding based on the most inflated head-count numbers possible. Yay! *** Jimme Bise tweets: "Two! Four! Six!... Read More
My column looks at the bloated Census p.r. and education budget. GOP Sen. Johnny Isakson is asking questions. As well he should. History shows that the more the Census spends on advertising, the lower the response rate is. Best watchdog site for all the latest Census shenanigans: My Two Census. *** The Super-Sized Census Boondoggle... Read More
I've noted the Obama administration's use of children as Census p.r. staff before. (See Meet Obama’s newest Census collectors: Your kids!, Aug. 27, 2009). Brace for even more aggressive tactics in the classroom -- like this effort in Florida (hat tip - reader Susanne): Ariel Civelek was just a baby in the last U.S. Census,... Read More
Otherwise known as the tax-subsidized National Democrat Future Voter Outreach Drive: Anyone who doesn't know there is a Census this year will know after Monday. The government's unprecedented $340 million promotional blitz of the 2010 Census launches Monday with the debut of the Census Portrait of America Road Tour in New York City's Times Square....

Reader Alex e-mails: "During the finale of 'The Biggest Loser' last night, NBC aired a promo spot for an episode of Law and Order where a conservative talk show host is put on trial for murder based on creating a 'climate of hate.' I know you've covered this aspect of the census worker story..." Indeed.... Read More
Anatomy of a smear.
Remember Ashley Todd? She was the young Republican hate crimes hoaxer who carved a backwards "B" on her face and tried to blame it on an Obama supporter last fall. I took a lot of crap from from my own commenters for doubting her fishy story straight out of the box. At least you guys... Read More
“We believe it was an intentional act on his part to take his own life."
Reminder: This was the smear graphic spread on far Left blogs that accuses prominent conservatives of contributing to the death of Kentucky census worker Bill Sparkman. Note the caption at the bottom: "He reaped what they sowed." When will the Left retract the Kentucky census worker case smear against conservatives? I'm not holding my breath... Read More
Do you remember when the Left convicted prominent conservatives, myself included, in the death of the Kentucky census worker in September? I do. Here's a reminder. Andrew Sullivan pointed his finger at "Southern populist terrorism, whipped up by the GOP and its Fox and talk radio cohorts" in a post titled "No Suicide," which decried... Read More
Crime, Census, and censorship by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2009 There are serious problems with the administration of the U.S. Census. Americans have good reason to be wary of the stranger’s knock on the door. Unfortunately, anything critics say about the federal census can and will be used against them in the court of... Read More
Something horrible happened to Bill Sparkman, who worked part-time as a Census worker in rural southeastern Kentucky. He was found dead. Tied to a tree. Preliminary tests show he died of asphyxiation. But the "cause of Sparkman's death is under investigation, and authorities have not ruled out suicide, an accident or homicide, said Kentucky state...

"We no longer have confidence that our national partnership agreement is being effectively managed through your offices."
It's a start! FNC's Major Garrett reports on Twitter that the U.S. Census Bureau has cut all ties to ACORN, which had been named a Census data collection partner for the 2010 Census. Census director Robert Groves, an ACORN-approved nominee, reportedly sent a letter to the racketeers today in the wake of Big Government's videotaped... Read More
Andrew Marcus at Founding Bloggers points out that federal slush fund money is going to Barack Obama's old pals at the Woods Fund in Chicago: The Woods Fund was home to jihadi apologist Rashid Khalidi, Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, and Barack Obama -- who served on the Board of Directors at a time when...

If Team Obama could send their ACORN foot soldiers into taxpayer-funded schools to collect Census data, they would. Instead, they're turning your own children into proxy Census collectors. Specifically targeted: Bilingual children whom the government is relying on to reach non-English-speaking parents. (See my April 3, 2009 column: Obama Census - No Illegal Alien Left... Read More
Here is yesterday's Senate roll call vote on Robert M. Groves, of Michigan, to be Director of the Census: (link) Here's all you need to know. ACORN approves: *** Previous Census blogging.
My column today spotlights the radical re-shaping of the electoral landscape by the Obama and Company census conspirators. The immediate agenda of the left-wing census volunteer groups: freezing immigration raids. The long-term goal: Exploiting the massive population of illegal aliens to redraw the political map and secure a permanent ruling majority. As I've long argued,... Read More
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Fox News reports that ACORN will be one of a plethora of left-wing groups "helping out" with the Census. But of course. The question is: Will the worriers just worry -- or will they do something about it? The Bush White House k
Let's go:
There's a racial/ethnic lobby power grab taking place in the shadows of the porkulus/TARP II debates. It involves the White House shifting oversight of the Census Bureau away from the Commerce Department. Minority mau-mau-ers don't want Republican Commerce Secretary nominee Judd Gregg watching over their fuzzy math calculations. John Fund explains: President Obama said in... Read More
Open-borders math.
Well, lookee what California Sen. Barbara Boxer is up to now (click for full-size): The rub: Boxer's amendment, SA 3246, is attached to the current spending bill up on the Senate floor. So, why is Boxer so interested in blocking aggressive immigration enforcement leading up to the 2010 Census? Hint, hint: U.S. states with large... Read More
