Obamacare's Patient-Dumping, Privacy-Meddling Scheme by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The stench of Chicago cronyism over the White House just got fouler. Inhale this: A shadowy $10 billion Obamacare agency with zero oversight just awarded first lady Michelle Obama's pet patient-dumping scheme at the University of Chicago Medical Center a $5.9 million taxpayer-funded grant....

White House visitor logs show that Hilary Rosen, the DC lobbyist/Anita Dunn colleague who attacked Ann Romney's stay-at-home-mom status on CNN last night, visited 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. at least 35 times. (Remember: White House logs are an inaccurate measure of ACTUAL White House visits, as liberal media outlets/watchdogs themselves have reported and as I've reminded... Read More
So this just arrived in my e-mail box tonight from the other Michelle: Michelle -- As I have traveled across the country, I have had the privilege of meeting incredible women from all walks of life. From young women paying their own way through college, to moms working the extra shift to keep food on... Read More
Seems like only yesterday the White House was basking in the glow of worldly feminists effusing over the president's Grrrl Power governance. Flashback: Chaudhury: The criticism of the Obama administration seems to be particularly "male," you know? When you say 'why aren't you fighting back, why aren't you policing?' I think we've been talking about... Read More
On July 6, I told you about all the well-heeled spinners in the White House Office of Public Engagement. Their ranks keep on swelling. My column today introduces you to the newly-designed "America's Champions of Change for the Arts." Yes, it's as creepy as it sounds. *** Obama's Ministers of Culture and Agitprop by Michelle...

Chicago on the Potomac, Part 99,967 The other new Chicago crony chief of staff by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2010 Fun fact: Bill Daley isn't the only new chief of staff in the White House with longtime ties to the Chicago Way. Yep, it's No Windy City Corporate Lawyer Left Behind Week in the... Read More
Goodbye, Susan Sher. Hello, Tina Tchen. Readers of Culture of Corruption are already familiar with the name "Susan Sher." Sher is Michelle Obama's old boss at the University of Chicago Medical Center (where they worked together on the infamous patient-dumping scheme no one wants to talk about) and a former Mayor Richard Daley attorney. She... Read More
Today marks the 9th day of jury deliberations in the Blagojevich corruption trial. Early in their deliberations, the jurors asked the judge for a full transcript of the trial, including the prosecution's closing arguments, which provided a comprehensive road map of the 28 counts and corresponding evidence against Blagojevich and his brother. The judge denied... Read More
It's moronic exchanges like this one between White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and rambling Indian magazine editor Shoma Chaudhury -- who slobbers all over President Obama for his "womanly" leadership -- that should make every rational woman cringe. First, there's the nauseating gender identity politics pandering. Second, there's the snort-worthy detachment from reality (the... Read More
Who is Ellie Light? I predict you'll start seeing the question as a popular bumper sticker soon (a la "Who is John Galt?"...and voila, someone has already made a t-shirt!). It's a handy rhetorical rejoinder the next time the White House or your nutroots neighbors and co-workers try to tar the Tea Party or any... Read More
"She's glamorous."
Nope, just kidding. It's another sympathetic MSM puff piece on the Friend of Valerie Jarrett/Obama bundler-turned-White House social secretary...from the notorious lefty fashion writer Robin Givhan at the Washington Post. Shorter version: "She's glamorous!" Rogers will not show up to the House hearing on Crashergate. In an attempt to put out the security fire, the... Read More
"Let the good times roll."
White House social secretary Desiree Rogers makes her grand entrance at last week's White House State Dinner... ...while grifter couple Michaele and Tareq Salahi snuck in the back and circumvented security to gain access to President Obama... Readers of this blog and of Culture of Corruption are already quite familiar with Desiree Rogers. She's the... Read More
Turkeys of the year by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2009 As we gather ‘round the Thanksgiving table, bow our heads in prayer, and feast on the holiday bird, it is only fitting to take a moment to fete the unforgettable turkeys of 2009. 1. The stimulus. Back in February, I wrote that if the... Read More
"An educated scoundrel is still a scoundrel."
All is not lost in the Ivory Tower! In September/October, Stanford Magazine ran a lavish softball profile of Valerie Jarrett (Stanford '78) on her role as Barack Obama's confidante (h/t - reader Ed R.): The piece appeared in the wake of the Jarrett-engine
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
Yes, the woman who bragged about recruiting Marxist rabble-rouser Van Jones is lambasting conservatives for spurning radical leftist ACORN/Big Labor embracer Dede Scozzafava: No, Ms. Jarrett, you will not be allowed to dictate what "moooooderate" Republicanism is. There is nothing moderate about Scozzafava. And there is nothing mainstream about you. Just
There's a new website dedicated to exposing White House senior adviser/Chicago consigliere/real estate mogul Valerie Jarrett. Call her out. Policing Obama's culture of corruption takes eternal vigilance.
Speaking truth to power.
A CNN anchor, of all people, called out senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett for her disingenuous Fox News attack and attempted backtracking. Hot Air has the priceless video. You'll especially love the spectacle of the Obamas' consigliere/Chicago real estate mogul/Daley crony claiming to represent the underdog "speaking truth to power." Transcript via Noel Sheppard...

Legacy.
Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama cut his teeth in community organizing at Chicago public housing project Altgeld Gardens. Obama exaggerated his role as an activist at Altgeld Gardens, according to a 2007 LATimes report quoting other community organizers, and left behind more failure than success, according to this 2008 Boston Globe report: Twenty miles...

When I worked in Seattle covering corporate welfare and city government, I became strange bedfellows with a diverse alliance of libertarians on the right and Ralph Naderites on the left who oppose "public-private partnership" deals between developers and statist Democrat AND Republican politicians. These "public-private partnership" scams inevitably involve tax-increment financing gimmickry to siphon off... Read More
Michelle Obama wants you to know that the all-out Chicago Olympics bid is not for The Cronies. It's for...The Children! Especially, says Mrs. O, the fat children: Chicago can't keep its children safe, let alone fit. How about letting another international city foot the massive bill and instead exposing hometown children to Olympic ideals by... Read More
Photoshop: Paul Croteau My syndicated column today -- reprinted below with added links, pics, and info -- gives you a rundown of the Obama cronies inside and outside the White House who stand to gain the most from the Chicago 2016 Olympic bid. Chicagoans of all political stripes who oppose massive government funding of Mayor... Read More
Playing games.
The Obamas, Richard Daley, and little Olympics lobbyists. Photos via WhiteHouse.gov Yes, they can. And yes, they did. The Obamas have wasted public schoolkids' time as junior lobbyists for their Chicago cronies' Olympics bid. More on that in a moment. As a reminder: I noted last week that Obama had created a new "White House... Read More
Last week, I spotlighted Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama's collaborative efforts to push their mentor, friend, and former employer Chicago mayor Richard Daley's bid to bring the Olympics to Chicago in 2016. From now until Oct. 2, when the International Olympic Committee votes on the decision in Copenhagen, I'll keep tabs on all the Chicago... Read More
Cronies.
In Culture of Corruption, I spotlight the intimate relationship between Chicago Mayor Richard Daley's crony lawyer Valerie Jarrett and First Lady Michelle Obama. Jarrett's slum lord record in Chicago is highly relevant to her current and ongoing pursuit of Chicago's 2016 Olympic bid -- which will cost taxpayers nearly $5 billion and bring an untold...

Glamour shots vs. Grove Parc slums.
Here is a perfect example of why I wrote Culture of Corruption (officially out today -- I'll be launching on Hannity radio and TV.) Over the weekend, the New York Times published a massive, 8,100-word profile of the Obamas' best friend and Chicago crony, Valerie Jarrett. The author, Robert Draper, laments that "[o]ver a four-month... Read More
