Sponsors of Anarchy by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 Hoodlums will be out in full force this Inauguration Day weekend. Count on it. I've covered the left's criminal anarchist element for more than 20 years -- from the animal rights terrorists who have harassed, threatened and firebombed scientific researches across the U.S. and Europe...

The Left's dark money managers: Meet Philip Gara LaMarche by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Philip Gara LaMarche is a secretive political operative who funnels billions of dollars from undisclosed donors to nonprofits and astroturf groups. But you won't hear unhinged Harry Reid railing Queegishly about him on the Senate floor. Why? Here's why:... Read More
Horse hockey: The Left’s Rafalca Derangement Syndrome by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Rafalca is the name of Ann Romney’s show horse, which competed in Olympic dressage this week. Rafalca Derangement Syndrome is the name of a debilitating partisan disease, which is raging among snotty “progressives” posing as populists. On Thursday, the George Soros-funded... Read More
Straight outta moonbat central casting... Some people think the Occupy Wall Street/Whatever movement harkens back to the 1960s. Me? I'm getting bad, late 1980s flashbacks. It's like watching Oberlin College freshman orientation parties sprouting up all over the country. Zombie caught an Occupy L.A. protester babbling about the "violence" necessary to achieve "fundamental transformation:" In... Read More
Mr. Green Jobs Boondoggle Rides Again by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 Van Jones, President Obama's disgraced green jobs czar, is back with a radical progressive plan to rescue America ... from his old boss. The problem, posits Jones, is that his fellow community organizer in the White House hasn't spent enough, regulated enough... Read More
Obama's exclusive George Soros waivers by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 "Millionaires and billionaires," President Obama says derisively, must make more "sacrifices" and live by the same rules the rest of America lives by. But there are seven little words that will never appear on the White House teleprompter: "And that means you, too,... Read More
My column today takes on trashy trash-talking Democrat Rep. Lynn Woolsey's smear of Gen. David Petraeus. The Code Pink/MoveOn Democrats strike again. "Move On" is still stuck in 2007. Democrat Rep. Lynn Woolsey: Capitol Hill's Lindsay Lohan by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 A grown woman in public office who acts like Lindsay Lohan... Read More
Doug Powers told you this week about Democrats hiding behind PBS cartoon shield "Arthur" in their bid to save state-run media funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Today, PBS sent out a Twitter kiss to their offensive linemen at Soros-backed MoveOn, who've been leading the government media rescue charge: Coming soon to PBS children's... Read More
Earlier this week, I noted George Soros's $100 million contribution to open-borders, anti-Israel, anti-U.S. Human Rights Watch. Guess what he is up to now? Prepare yourselves for a $45 million, Soros-driven drive to undermine America's independent judiciary. The American Justice Partnership revealed the details today: Read the AJP's full investigative report
Transnationalist billionaire George Soros is spreading his left-wing wealth across the globe. The NYTimes reports a record Soros donation to Human Rights Watch: George Soros, the billionaire investor and philanthropist, plans to announce on Tuesday that he is giving $100 million to Human Rights Watch to expand the organization’s work globally. It is the largest... Read More
Who's there?
Who's there? In another business-as-usual Friday night document dump, the White House released logs on 110 White House visitors and trumpeted "transparency like you've never seen before." The self-congratulatory announcement conveniently omits that Obama originally blocked the logs' release and only disclosed them under threat of lawsuit. Also, this "unprecedented" disclosure is severely limited: Most... Read More
A reader just sent this fresh missive from the Fox News Deranged-foot soldiers at MoveOn: From: Noah T. Winer, MoveOn.org Civic Action [email protected] Subject: Stay off FOX [Recipient name redacted] Date: Tuesday, October 20, 2009, 2:05 PM Dear MoveOn member, All year, FOX has worked 24/7 to block President Obama's agenda—repeating lies about "death panels,"...

Make a note of the Hollywood celebrities featured in this health insurance industry-bashing joint production from MoveOn.org and Will Ferrell, Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde, et al. No word yet on whether they'll be making a protest video about the fund-raiser for Nancy Pelosi in Washington, D.C. being hosted by UnitedHealth care lobbyist Steve Elmendorf --... Read More
The Astroturf gang's all here.
*** Tomorrow in Minnesota, Obama-bots will gather for a "Big Insurance: We're Sick of It" demonstration against UnitedHealthcare. Who's behind it? The announcement is here. It's a Who's Who of left-wing astroturfers: MoveOn? Check. HCAN? Check. SEIU? Check. AFL-CIO? Check. Van Jones's Color of Change? Checkity-check-check. MoveOn claims there are 102 rallies in the works.... Read More
When the story broke last night about a health care town hall scuffle in Thousand Oaks, Calif., that left one person without a part of his finger, it wasn't clear who bit whom. MoveOn activists were involved and their accounts colored much of the early coverage. It now appears that the biter was an Obamacare... Read More
"...among our prizes is a grand-prize of a trip for two to Honolulu, Hawaii..."
The national media doesn't want to talk about the dominance of conservative books atop the New York Times best-seller list and other national lists. But it's clearly getting under the Left's skin. At HuffPo, a Soros-tied co-author has launched a bid to dislodge conservative authors -- and he's asking for help from every last nutroots... Read More
Yes, it's true. Barack Obama has chipped in $2 billion in loans to exploit offshore oil resources in hopes of extracting a major new source of petroleum...in South America. And yes, it's true. There is a Soros link. Ed Morrissey has a round-up and notes: Waiting for enviro-nitwits to chain themselves to gas pumps near... Read More
“We’ve hired skilled grassroots organizers…”
MoveOn tells its minions that "this is getting ugly." MoveOn knows ugly. And now they're exploiting the current Obamacare crisis to raise $250,000 and recruit new thugs. Here's the missive the far Left outfit sent out today. My favorite line: "We’ve hired skilled grassroots organizers..." Authenticity! Date: Fri, 7 Aug 2009 08:56:47 -0700 From: [email protected] Read More
Kodak moment: Photo source Welcome to Obamacare Theater by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2009 The White House sure likes to put on a show. Fresh off its joint stage production with ABC News, the Obama administration broadcast another health care propaganda play this week under the guise of a citizen “town hall.” (Full video... Read More
In my column on the SEIU today, I mentioned how the George Soros-funded group, Americans Coming Together, was hit with a $775,000 fine by the Federal Election Commission – the third largest civil penalty levied in the panel’s history -- for gross campaign finance violations. Yesterday, in little-noticed news, California's campaign finance panel fined Soros... Read More
I can't even keep count anymore, can you? Meet the newest left-wing journalist rescued from the ailing newspaper industry by the Obama administration: former LA Times columnist Rosa Brooks. She's the daughter of liberal writer Barbara Ehrenreich and an acolyte of George Soros. And she's working in the...Pentagon. Not a joke. Nile Gardiner gives you... Read More
MoveOn.org hasn't moved on yet from demonizing Rush Limbaugh. He responded to their latest attack ad last night on Mark Levin's show. Radio Equalizer Brian Maloney's got the scoop.
He's got his tentacles everywhere. Life News reports: "George Soros Funds Catholic Groups Making Obama Seem Pro-Life on Abortion." Denver archbishop Charles Caput called out the left-wing groups last week: n an address delivered to a women's group last week, Archbishop Charles Chaput of the Archdiocese of Denver strongly criticized Obama-sup
Scroll down for updates...still no response from NBC/SNL...the vid clip is currently up on YouTube...watch below before it goes down...10/7 5:20pm Eastern...SNL is editing the skit... Over the weekend, I watched a hilarious, dead-on, and surprisingly honest skit on Saturday Night Live about the craptastic bailout and its Democrat roots. The skit called out Fannie/Freddie...

Black hole.
Add NY Democrat Gov. David Paterson to the list of those who don't get why Obama's "community organizer" days deserve ricidule, scorn, suspicion, and derision. Paterson echoed the Obama cult's complaint that Republicans equate "community organizer" with "black:" Let me help. Synonyms for Obama-esque "community organizer:" Thug. Shakedown artist.
My syndicated column today delves into the Democrat Party platform and exposes how untold amounts of taxpayer funding would be steered to militant, George Soros-backed left-wing groups. Welcome to Barack Obama's "Social Investment Fund Network." Follow the money. That goes for both presidential candidates who carry the Soros taint. Ugh. *** The Democrat Party platform's... Read More
Holding Accountable America accountable.
The ACLU is outraged about the new move to intimidate political donors by targeting them with "warning" letters. Not. Just testing to see if you're paying attention. No, it's Judicial Watch that's on the case of the Accountable America speech-chilling campaign. Glad someone's holding them accountable: Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and... Read More
"Even as I write, our investigative teams are vigorously searching through public documents and compiling a detailed...
Har. Master satirist Iowahawk has received one of those nasty warning letters from the brownshirts at Accountable America. Check it out: Mockery is always the best medicine. Your letter may be in the mail next week.
Politics of fear.
Scroll for updates... "non-partisan" my you-know-what...Freedom's Watch responds... As noted by See-Dubya last night, the oh-so-tolerant leftists have launched a campaign to send "WARNING" letters to potential GOP donors in a thuggish attempt to depress Republican fund-raising. A reader sent me a copy of the actual letter from "Accountable America"--the brainchild of the same MoveOn... Read More
Yes, it's true. The left-wing anti-patriots at MoveOn.org, who didn't think twice about handing jihadists potent ammunition the day before the sixth anniversary of 9/11 with their despicable attack on Gen. Petraeus, are now worried about actions that "hurt the country." Dangerous, perilous, damaging, harmful actions...like having a Democrat debate moderated by journalists who aren't... Read More
FNDS.
They really do live on a different planet:
Let the ad-making begin!
Now, this is tempting. MoveOn is asking its followers to come up with "Obama in 30 seconds" video ads: Too easy: Just submit 30 seconds of Jeremiah Wright's chickens-coming-home-to-roost, God-damn-America and the Rich White People rants. The Sorosians will eat it up! Meanwhile, the DNC's holding a short film contest (via the Drunkablog) and the... Read More
Left-wing AstroTurf.
I love how Reuters calls the Soros-sponsored operatives uniting against John McCain "grass-roots:" What Reuters forgot to mention: The Center for American Progress is Clintonista John Podesta's think tank funded with Soros cash. MoveOn is a Soros operation. USAction is
"Progressive weight."
Well, it's in. The military-smearing MoveOn presidential endorsement I mentioned yesterday was announced today: Barack Obama gets the nod. Or, as they put, gets the "progressive weight" thrown his way. Weight = burden. MoveOn Endorsement Throws Progressive Weight Behind Barack Obama 3.2 Million Members Nationwide Mobilize to Get Out the Progressive Vote for Senator Obama... Read More
Bought and owned.
The Nation reports that nutroots powerhouse MoveOn.org is contemplating a presidential endorsement. Just what a Democrat presidential candidate who will need to move to the center to win the general election needs: The seal of approval of the despicable, military-smearing , speech-suppressing minions of MoveOn! Seal of approval...or kiss of death? Hey, they bought it,... Read More
Moonbat stenography.
The right side of the blogosphere is all over the clueless media coverage of a new "study" and database compiled by "two nonprofit journalism organizations" that purports to show that BUSH LIED to entice American into Iraq. You would think by now that the MSM would try to spare itself some embarrassment and at least... Read More
Calling card.
You may have read over the holidays that the Petraeus-bashers at MoveOn raised money for the USO. Now, some directors have assailed the decision and want the organization to return the tainted cash: The chairman of the United Service Organizations defended its decision to pair with MoveOn.org to provide phone cards to U.S. troops after... Read More
Straying from the moonbat reservation.
A funny thing happens when open-minded Democrats visit Iraq and take a good look at what's happening on the ground. They see continued signs of success--and they come home willing to spread the news. Democrat Rep. Joe Donnelly of Indiana follows in the footsteps of Washington Democrat Rep. Brian Baird (hat tip - Ed Morrissey):... Read More
Don'tMoveOn.org.
Update 12/11 10:52am Eastern. Boehner on Dems: "They need to get their act together, now." Update 12/11 8:00am Eastern.

Update 9:30pm Eastern. The NBC logo photoshopping continues... Reader Roger sends this one: Update: It's official. Shocker! The NBC lawyer who originally nixed the pro-troops ads is a big Dem donor. More. *** You've all been following the moonbat-influenced decision by NBC to turn down pro-troops public service ads from Freedom's Watch. If you haven't... Read More
Let. It. Go.
The Sleuth blog run by WaPo's Mary Ann Akers has an interesting item about Sen. Barbara Boxer's snit fit over former Rep. James Rogan's (R-Calif.) nomination to the federal bench. Akers reports that Boxer's office admitted that she's blocking the nomination because she can't get over Rogan's role as one of the House impeachment managers... Read More
Update/correction: Thanks to amerpundit for pointing out that the ad is in fact the very same one from 2005. Still uncorrected, still peddling the lie that the British troops are American troops. Their bad. But it's not a new one for the 2007 season. My bad. Still very useful to see what they're keeping on... Read More
ShutUp.org
Via Wired (hat tip - reader Tom): The left-leaning political advocacy group, MoveOn.org, is backing down in a flap over the use of its name in online advertisements, permitting an influential Republican senator to criticize the organization in a reelection ad on Google's search engine. "We don't want to support a policy that denies people... Read More
ShutUp.org.
Update 10:45am Eastern. Want to see the banned ads? Here's the scoop from the guy who tried to place them. *** Over the past few weeks, I've been driving home the little-noticed story about MoveOn.org bullying mom-and-pop Internet shop owners who criticized the General Petraeus ads. Remember how they got them to yank their anti-MoveOn... Read More
Thuggery in action.
I devoted my syndicated newspaper column this week to the targets of MoveOn.org's speech-squelching bullying campaign. This is a shameful and despicable intimidation scheme abusing copyright infringement law to silence critics of the "General Betray Us" attack ad. You know about it because I've been blogging about it repeatedly for the past week. Unlike Rush... Read More
Geese and ganders.
Just like you can't be a little bit pregnant, you can't be a little bit nutroots. If you are going to throw your lot in with the MoveOn/MediaMatters mob, you do it all the way. Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer appears to have some misgivings about the Crush Rush Express. First, he talks the... Read More
Sue us.
Photoshop credit: reader Ryan S. Photoshop credit: Blue Crab Boulevard Over the weekend, I blogged about the plight of t-shirt vendors at Cafe Press who were served cease-and-desist letters by the lawyer thugs at MoveOn.org. With the exception of the LA Times, I have seen no other MSM coverage of MoveOn.org's bogus copyright infringement threats... Read More
Shooting the messenger.
Update: Rush vs. Dingy Harry. Update: Moonbats continue to push to kick Rush off the Armed Forces Network. More here. *** So, word is that the Democrats will introduce a House resolution Monday condemning Rush Limbaugh for his remarks about phony soldiers. Brian Maloney points out that ABC News aired a report on phony soldiers... Read More
Update: Another challenge to the MoveOn legal thugs... Photoshop credit: Blue Crab Boulevard *** This is one of the logos MoveOn.org doesn't want you to see: Go ahead. Sue. Earlier in the week, the LA Times reported that MoveOn.org, the infamous left-wing thugs who sponsored the "General Betray Us" ads, had unleashed its lawyers on... Read More
No, let's not Move On.
MoveOn.org says it will make up the ad rate difference. This was the most snort-worthy sentence in the Times' coverage of itself. Via the NYTimes' Caucus blog: Coffee spew in 3, 2, 1... *** Blogger Bob Owens was right all along when he smelled a NYTimes rat lurking in the MoveOn.org "Betray Us" ad deal.... Read More
