Michelle Malkin Hates “Queer The Census,” Sees Vast Obama Conspiracy



Ah, you know, sometimes I miss the good ole days. Like the good ole days of this blog, when I first started writing about Michelle Malkin, who back then was on a campaign of generating hate and hostility toward the rightly-angered, recently-demoted LGBTQ Californians (or, as Malkin likes to call them, the “anti-Prop. 8 mafia,”) who had just had their rights stolen by their neighbors and colleagues via the ballot initiative madness that is Prop 8.

I’ve since penned about a dozen pieces on the inglorious babblings of Michelle Malkin. I’ll confess, my favorite Malkin trivia back then was this bit I wrote in, “Dear Michelle Malkin, I Like You Too!

Dear Michelle Malkin,

I like you too. I like how you’re obsessed with homosexuality. I like how the word “homosexual” appears in 45 of your blog posts, and how the word “gay” appears in well over 150 of your blog posts.

Anyway, the Queen of the Tea Party Movement is back to demonizing gays, this time by way of using Barack Obama, (who, ironically has done little for the LGBTQ community,) and the recent “Queer The Census” efforts, which include celebrities like Star Trek’s George Takei and his husband, Brad Altman, who made a YouTube video urging LGBTQ Americans to check off “married” if in their hearts they are.


Malkin — who recently called for a “Spartacus type revolt,” (revealing, perhaps, her late-night viewing habits?) cannot possibly sleep at night. Too many conspiracies to count, too many backroom dealings to try to divine in her mind. (Perhaps her problem is that instead of counting sheep, she is counting students who are “junior lobbyists [pressuring] legislators for higher education spending, pro-illegal immigration protests, gay marriage, environmental propaganda, and anti-war causes.”)

In “Politicized Counting,” her National Review piece yesterday, Malkin wrote,

President Obama’s politicized, profligate U.S. Census drive is so desperate for positive press that it has now recruited former Bush senior adviser Karl Rove to do public-service announcements. Rove pleads on video: “Please answer the ten easy questions. They’re almost the same ones Madison helped write for the first Census back in 1790.” Message: If you don’t join the Census bandwagon, James Madison will have lost!

Sorry, Mr. Rove. Playing the Founding Fathers card isn’t going to quell conservative criticism of how the Obama administration has exploited the Census boondoggle for both economic and ideological gain.

Because if there’s one fact I’ll go to my grave knowing is true, it’s that Karl Rove is in bed, ideologically, with Barack Obama. Who knows? Perhaps they’re both Bilderberg members? (Oh, wait. Nope. I checked.) There’s yet one more conspiracy to keep you up at night, Michelle.

You know, I’ll just bet that in response to Malkin’s piece yesterday, Rove published his Wall Street Journal column today, “Obama Has Overpromised and Underdelivered,” just to take the heat from Malkin off his obvious partnership with Obama.

(Who knows, Michelle, maybe Rove really is in bed with Obama? We know Obama checked “African-American” on his census form, and we assume he checked “married,” but to whom… More conspiracy fodder for you, Michelle!)

But unlike her fellow Tea Party Terrorists, Erick Erickson and Michelle Bachmann, Michelle Malkin says she’s actually for the census:

For the record, I have no beef with the constitutional mandate. I complied by filling out my Census form and sending it back — with “American” in the blank for race/ethnicity to register my opposition to government racial classifications.

So, what makes the Obama Census campaign different from other Census programs? First, its naked, left-wing special-interest pandering. The White House is championing a “Queer the Census” movement by pro-gay-marriage groups, for example, and the Commerce Department is working with open-borders leaders who want to use the Census as leverage to stop all immigration raids.

Yes, you know those devious, debilitating “government racial classifications,” designed to help “the man” keep minorities in their place. (You know, Michelle, those people to whom you said, “Shut Up,” as in, “We need the racial grievance-mongers to shut up. Shut. Up.”)

Now, it’s important to keep in mind Malkin’s position on “government racial classifications,” immigration, and citizenship. Malkin, born in Philadelphia to Philippine nationals — her father, a doctor on an employer-sponsored visa — opposes automatic granting of citizenship to children born to foreign nationals, just because they are born on U.S. soil. In other words, Malkin, who has asked of Obama’s birth certificate, “Has anyone seen it? Why shouldn’t the record be in the public domain for presidential candidates?” doesn’t believe Obama is a U.S. citizen, but also doesn’t believe she should be.

I wonder if she’ll consider asking to change her census form — and her “government racial classification” of “American,” (especially since she doesn’t believe she should be,) and, perhaps, her nationality, with all the benefits it offers her and her family? Many benefits she has that, sadly, LGBTQ Americans cannot access because the federal government does not recognize our unions, the very unions Malkin is protesting we want to acknowledge on the U.S. census.

Ah, those crazy Obama census policies.


Malkin also posted her National Review piece on her own blog, under the title, “Obama’s politicized, profligate U.S. census,” and includes this tidbit of Founder-Fodder:

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 dime.

No, this is not what the Founders intended.

Nor, I’d swear on a stack on Constitutions, Michelle, are you.

Revealed: Trump Paid Off Millions in Secret Debt to North Korea-Linked Company While in Office



There is a “chance” Donald Trump didn’t break the law by hiding debt from his 2016 presidential campaign’s financial disclosure reports, according to Forbes.

Documents obtained by the outlet show that the then-candidate failed to disclose $19.8 million in debt to Daewoo, a South Korean company with a history of ties to North Korea.

“There is a chance that Trump’s omission may have been legal,” the report said, noting that Trump may have used a loophole in the law.

“Although officials have to list personal loans on their financial disclosures, the law does not require them to include loans to their companies, unless they are personally liable for the loans. The Trump Organization documents do not specify whether the former president, who owned 100% of the entities responsible for the debt, personally guaranteed the liability, leaving it unclear whether he broke the law or merely took advantage of a loophole.”

Forbes also pointed out that Trump may have hidden the debt because Daewoo, at one time, “was the only South Korean company permitted to operate a business inside [North Korea].”

The documents, which were disclosed after being obtained by New York Attorney General Letitia James, said that Trump quickly eliminated the debt after taking office.

“Daewoo was bought out of its position on July 5, 2017,” one document explained.

‘Anathema to the Soul of Our Nation’: Trump Pilloried for Demanding ‘Termination’ of the US Constitution



The White House on Saturday afternoon responded to former President Donald Trump’s demand for the “termination” of the United States Constitution over non-existent “fraud and deception” in American elections, which he continues to claim cost him the presidency in 2020 and that he is expecting Republicans to embrace in his 2024 reelection campaign.

Trump wrote on his struggling fake Twitter app Truth Social:


Trump followed up with:

So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!

He went on to add:


I wonder what Mitch McConnell, the RINOS, and all of the weak Republicans who couldn’t get the Presidential Election of 2020 approved and out of the way fast enough, are thinking now?

There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the elections of 2022, or 2020, or any other major historical contest, let alone that which was pervasive enough to affect the results. And the peaceful transfer of power from one administration to the next – which Trump has attempted to upend through his lies and ultimately by mounting an insurrection at the Capitol on January 6th, 2021 – is a key tenet that holds the American democratic experiment intact.

White House Deputy Press Secretary and Senior Communications Adviser for Strategic Response Andrew Bates touched on those points in a statement:

The American Constitution is a sacrosanct document that for over 200 years has guaranteed that freedom and the rule of law prevail in our great country. The Constitution brings the American people together – regardless of party – and elected leaders swear to uphold it. It’s the ultimate monument to all of the Americans who have given their lives to defeat self-serving despots that abused their powers and trampled on constitutional rights. Attacking the Constitution and all it stands for is anathema to the soul of our nation, and should be universally condemned. You cannot love America only when you win.

The Democratic National Committee also fired back at Trump, as reported by Politico:

Donald Trump lost by 7 million votes in 2020 and his calls to undermine our democracy cost his party key races in 2022. The continued silence by Republican leaders, including his potential primary competitors, shows a MAGA party that is beholden to Trumpism, his divisive rhetoric, and his extreme positions.

Democratic lawmakers denounced Trump as well.

Congressman Don Beyer of Virginia tweeted:

Days after Trump dined with men who praise Hitler and the Nazis, he demands the ‘termination’ of the Constitution’s electoral process so he can be illegally reinstated. Trump’s words and actions are unacceptable, they stoke hatred and political violence, and they are dangerous. Every Member of Congress swore an oath to ‘defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.’ Donald Trump has openly declared himself an enemy of the Constitution, and Republicans must repudiate him.

Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz said:

Trump just called for the suspension of the Constitution and it is the final straw for zero republicans, especially the ones who call themselves ‘constitutional conservatives.

New York Representative Richie Torres noted that “January 6 was Donald Trump’s attempt at terminating the US Constitution. He’s a repeat offender.”

California Congressman Eric Swalwell, who regularly faces death threats, stated that “every congressional reporter should demand responses from Congressional Republicans about Donald Trump’s call for the Constitution to be terminated … how many of them called themselves ‘Constitutional conservatives’ during the Obama years???”

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar said that “Trump just called for the suspension of the Constitution to overturn the 2020 results. Georgia VOTE. You stood tall against Trump and his minions last time. A win for [incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael] Warnock is another win for democracy.”

While outrage over Trump’s “truth” was not exclusive to the left, few on the right have stepped up to rebuke Trump. One exception, however, was ex-United Nations Ambassador and National Security Adviser John Bolton, who posted that “no American conservative can agree with Donald Trump’s call to suspend the Constitution because of the results of the 2020 election. And all real conservatives must oppose his 2024 campaign for president.”

‘Big Whop’: Even Right-Wing Critics Are Slamming Elon Musk’s ‘Underwhelming’ Hunter Biden Twitter Escapade



Right-wing Twitter users are weighing in to express their disapproval of the so-called bombshell “Twitter files” Elon Musk promised to deliver on Friday, December 2.

According to The Daily Beast, Musk was set to address Twitter’s decision to implement a policy that would restrict headlines and reports about Hunter Biden’s laptop from circulating on the social media platform. However, the leak ended up being a failure for many right-wing experts.

Sebastian Gorka, a right-wing radio host who previously served under the Trump administration, offered a critical response to Musk’s release after journalist Matt Taibbi shared a full Twitter thread about the findings.

“So far, I’m deeply underwhelmed,” Gorka said, adding, “We know the Dems in DC collude with the Dems in Palo Alto [Califonia]. Big Whop.”

He went on to reiterate his arguments when grilled by his far-right followers who were convinced that Musk’s Twitter files were some kind of “smoking gun.”

Per the news outlet: “Responding to a user claiming the Twitter company emails were ‘a clear violation of the 1st Amendment,’ the radio host fired back: ‘Err no, it’s not the DNC asking a private company to censor has nothing to do with the First Amendment.’”

Speaking to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine also disapproved of the release. “I feel that Elon Musk has held back some material,” she alleged. According to The Beast, Devine also claimed: “sinister forces were perhaps controlling Musk after the Twitter chief took a meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook earlier in the week.”

She added, “In particular, there’s a tweet in which Matt Taibbi says he hasn’t seen any evidence that law enforcement specifically warned off Twitter from our story. But that’s just not correct.”

Free Beacon reporter Joe Simonson also echoed similar sentiments on Twitter. “Twitter files [are] underwhelming so far,” Simonson tweeted. “Just revealing what we already knew: Twitter was staffed by democrats who did the bidding of Democrats.”
