Michelle Malkin’s new book: Culture of Corruption

If Mark Levin’s “Liberty and Tyranny” defines our country’s disease, Michelle Malkin’s latest, “Culture of Corruption, Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies” is a fantastic illustration of the resulting symptoms. Note: Michelle will be a guest with Jim on Sound Off Connecticut Wednesday. Read more

Sotomayor Roundup – Gingrich, Malkin, Forbes

I wanted to put up a post with some links to the Sotomayor nomination from out site and others.

The “Rush called a racist” post is really a pretty good look not so much at Rush but some of the comments made by Sotomayor that may ultimately become her undoing.

BTW, Newt Gingrich has now joined the call for her withdrawal because of what he believes to be racist comments.

On Wednesday, Gingrich tweeted: “Imagine a judicial nominee said ‘my experience as a white man makes me better than a latina woman.’ new racism is no better than old racism.”

The “Liberal Talk Show Host” post is a great example of a nomination shell game. The left is pushing its “compelling story” line rather than compelling credentials which may or may not exist but when pressed … Press could only come up with “She’s the sixth Catholic”?

BTW … Michelle Malkin is all over this one too.

Democrats are eager to celebrate diversity, you see, as long as the diversely-pigmented pledge allegiance to the Left for life.

Finally a link to an article I talked about today at Forbes

I have written about Didden in Forbes. The case involved about as naked an abuse of government power as could be imagined. Bart Didden came up with an idea to build a pharmacy on land he owned in a redevelopment district in Port Chester over which the town of Port Chester had given Greg Wasser control. Wasser told Didden that he would approve the project only if Didden paid him $800,000 or gave him a partnership interest. The “or else” was that the land would be promptly condemned by the village, and Wasser would put up a pharmacy himself. Just that came to pass. But the Second Circuit panel on which Sotomayor sat did not raise an eyebrow. Its entire analysis reads as follows: “We agree with the district court that [Wasser’s] voluntary attempt to resolve appellants’ demands was neither an unconstitutional exaction in the form of extortion nor an equal protection violation.”

There’s more out there but for now this should do and we will add as time goes on.

They are watching you

The Department of Homeland Security has your number and you could very well be a dangerous radical … especially if you are a returning veteran or oppose abortion or illegal immigration. Michelle Malkin has all the details and so does Glenn Reynolds, who links to one of my new favorite bloggers. Make sure you read both.

Michelle’s is really the best blog post with the best analysis. I am sure those folks on the left who jumped on George Bush’s Patriot Act which never targeted American citizens will be even more outraged at this targeting of citizens expressing their First Amendment rights. Right?

Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

But this is my favorite.

(U) Disgruntled Military Veterans

(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists—including lone wolves or small terrorist cells—to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today.

Make sure you go to Michelle’s blog. Even once conservative talk show host Mike Smerconish warns the Tea Party folks … don’t turn into those racist, xenophobes we know you are.


Let’s keep it classy you radicals.

Porkapalooza Update – Update

Update II:Have you read the stimulus … like members of Congressread fast.

UPDATE: Red State has a great breakdown on the RAWDEAL PORKAPALOOZA.

The Democrats’ trillion dollar spending bill provides $1.10 per day in tax relief to workers, while saddling every American family with $9,400.00 in added debt.

Following are some very tentative quick facts on the trillion-dollar “stimulus” spending deal slated to be rushed through the House and Senate today or tomorrow by Congressional Democrats, as compiled by the Office of House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH).

Read the whole thing. It’s short and worth it.

Michelle Malkin continues to do the work even our own Congresspeople won’t do. She has the breakdown and I have already downloaded the House version. She has the Porkapalooza in PDF form. Late night reading?

Republicans Can Be Populists Too

Yes, they can. They are. They can be bigots and elitist too. We saw it with John McCain & Huckabee concerning the border and immigration issues. Michelle Malkin’s column just scratches the surface, politicians these days all seem to be pandering to special groups; they are populist candidates.

Baltimore Sun Profiles Michelle Malkin

I just read an article by Jonathan Pitts, Baltimore Sun reporter on Michelle Malkin. Nice read, and what surprises me even more is the respectable comments – 62 of them so far – that were posted by readers in the comments section. Very civil.

Michelle comments on her blog. Here’s an excerpt from the Sun’s profile.

If you’re seeking a living symbol of America’s rancorous political divide, look no further than Malkin, one of the most popular and provocative voices on the modern right. The only daughter of first-generation immigrants from the Philippines, Malkin, 37, began blogging on politics nine years ago after a successful run as a newspaper columnist and has become a menace out of proportion to her Size 0 frame.
