Congressional Black Corruption by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 If “Black Lives Matter,” then why have entrenched members of the Congressional Black Caucus spent more time enriching themselves than taking care of their neglected constituents? Too many social justice protesters are busy throwing shade, rocks, bottles, concrete blocks, and vicious death threats at police... Read More
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
The Obama crony in charge of your medical records by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 Who is Judy Faulkner? Chances are, you don't know her -- but her politically connected, taxpayer-subsidized electronic medical records company may very well know you.

The $4 Billion Obamacare Slush Fund for Progressives by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 If you like how the Obama administration's multibillion-dollar "investments" in bankrupt solar companies have turned out, you'll love the latest federal loan program to nowhere. It's the Obamacare loyalty rewards program for progressives. To appease liberal Democrats pushing for the... Read More
Cronyism of color.
My syndicated column today takes on racial demagogue and crony of color Maxine Waters, whose crooked ways I've covered since my first days at the L.A. Daily News. It's about time the rest of the media put her under the microscope. Wait 'til she starts beating them over the head with the race card. It's... Read More
As you may have heard, ICE chief Julie Myers is in trouble over her stupid Halloween costume flap: Just when it appeared Julie Myers had cleared every hurdle in her quest to officially become the nation's top immigration official, a dreadlocked wig and a prisoner's outfit could cost her the job. Myers, director of Immigration... Read More

Cronyism plus dhimmitude = insanity.
I've written extensively on the mess at DHS and the crony appointments with little to no experience in immigration law enforcement who populate the upper echelons of DHS management. Debbie Schlussel has also been on the case for a long time and has a new column in the NYPost on the toxic mix of cronyism... Read More
Over at Hot Air with lots o' links. Credit: David Lunde As I note in today's Vent, this still-unfolding tale underscores what a joke the Department of Homeland Security is. The mess involving the Shirlington Limousine company, the alleged prostitute shuttle service which got millions in government contracts despite a shady financial record and an... Read More
The Bush administration is responding to charges of cronyism in the bidding process by...expanding the pool of privileged cronies. The government-sponsored racial spoils system will now get a boost from Hurricane Katrina (via Breitbart/AP): I've written before on the embrace of federally-funded racial bean-counting programs by the GOP. See, for example, "Racial Profiling for Dollar$"... Read More
Before the quag-Miers, (hat tip: Confederate Yankee for the term) there was the other quag-Myers. That is: Julie Myers, a Bush lawyer with virtually no immigration and customs enforcement experience and minimal managerial experience who has been nominated to head the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. She just happens to be niece of recently... Read More
***scroll down for rolling updates*** What Julie Myers is to the Department of Homeland Security, Harriet Miers is to the Supreme Court. (Video of the announcement here via NYT).) It's not just that Miers has zero judicial experience. It's that she's so transparently a crony/"diversity" pick while so many other vastly more qualified and impressive... Read More
Jerry Seper at the Washington Times reports on more negative reaction to the Bush administration's troubled nomination of Julie Myers to head the already troubled U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency: The confirmation remains pending. Debbie Schlussel notes a CQ report on a meeting between Myers and GOP Sen. Susan Collins, chairwoman of the... Read More
The editors of National Review come out against the Julie Myers nomination. Excerpts: Your move, White House. *** The 9/11 Families for a Secure A
My new column on the boneheaded Julie Myers nomination is up. The Roanoke Times weighs in against the nomination. Maureen Dowd tries to do her best impression of a liberal who cares about border security. No need to pay or register. Just look at the headline and summary. And via AP, there's this news of...

**updated** Another disastrous crony appointment in the making This is Julie Myers, President Bush's nominee to head the the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency under the Department of Homeland Security. Her nomination is a joke. A bad joke: (via WaPo) The Bush administration is seeking to appoint a lawyer with little immigration or customs... Read More
