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.

‘Trying to Have It Both Ways’: Ivanka ‘Flailing’ as Trump Indictment Slams Family



While Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump have taken to their social media platforms to viciously lash out at Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for indicting their father on a reported 30 charges, Ivanka Trump posted a rather muted statement on her Instagram account which simply said, “I love my father, and I love my country. Today, I am pained for both. I appreciate the voices across the political spectrum expressing support and concern.”

According to Daily Beast conservative columnist Matt Lewis, the so-called “First Daughter,” who served in the White House with her father, is trying to stay true to her former president dad, while distancing herself from his legal problems — and it is not going to work for her.

As Lewis put it, Ivanka is “flailing” in her attempts to shed the memory of her participation in the Trump administration that reached its lowest point on Jan. 6 when supporters of Trump stormed the Capitol and sent lawmakers fleeing for their lives.

“It’s hard to argue with anything Ivanka says here, but it is not a statement of moral clarity. Nor is it (conversely) a statement of strong support for her father. She’s flailing and trying to have it both ways,” Lewis wrote before adding, “Now, it’s understandable that a daughter might not want to utterly condemn her father. Further, children are not responsible for their parents’ sins. Except, of course, if you consider the fact that Ivanka served as the primary weapon in the ‘Trump’s not such a belligerent pig as his four decades as a public figure would make you think’ propaganda push.”

Noting that Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner — who has baggage of his own — both stuck with Trump in the White House for all four years, Lewis added, “As far as the former first daughter goes, she and her husband might be done with politics, but once you’ve been a party to an administration like Trump’s, it’s going to be a long time before politics is done with them.”

“So, Ivanka, you want to have a seat at the cool apolitical kids’ table? You want to be once again accepted by the socially liberal billionaires’ children you used to go to the Hamptons with and now have Miami Beach playdates with? You want to enjoy the privileges of being a Trump with none of the shame? Good luck with that,” he concluded.

Dominion Wins ‘Blockbuster Victories’ Against Fox News – Last Legal Issue Will Be Decided by a Jury: Report



Dominion Voting Systems won what are being called “blockbuster victories” Friday afternoon when a judge ruled the company suing Fox News for $1.6 billion in a major defamation lawsuit had met its burden of proof that Rupert Murdoch‘s far-right wing cable channel had repeatedly made false statements.

The final, and likely greatest legal issue Dominion will have to prove will be actual malice. That issue will be decided in a jury trial, Delaware Superior Court Judge Eric M. Davis ruled Friday, according to Law & Crime.

Unlike previous cases, Fox News will reportedly not be able to argue the on-air statements its personalities made were opinion.

CNN legal analyst and Brookings senior fellow Norm Eisen calls Friday’s decision a “huge win for Dominion on their summary judgment motion against Fox News.”

“Dominion won partial summary judgement that what Fox said about them was false! Now they just have to prove actual malice and damages,” Eisen says. “Meanwhile Fox’s motion was totally denied.”

Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance, an MSNBC contributor adds: “Dominion’s evidence Fox made false statements with reckless disregard  is as strong as any I’ve seen.”

The judge was very clear in his ruling.

“While the Court must view the record in the light most favorable to Fox, the record does not show a genuine issue of material fact as to falsity,” Judge Davis wrote. “Through its extensive proof, Dominion has met its burden of showing there is no genuine issue of material fact as to falsity. Fox therefore had the burden to show an issue of material fact existed in turn. Fox failed to meet its burden.”

Attorney and MSNBC host and legal analyst Katie Phang points to this key passage in Judge Davis’ ruling.

Court watchers and news junkies are familiar at this point with the massive legal filings Dominion has made in which it exposed how Fox News knowingly made false statements regarding the 2020 presidential election. Those filings, each hundreds of pages, also detail internal Fox News communications and bombshell conversations between the company’s top personalities, executives, and even Chairman Rupert Murdoch.

Capitol Police Issue Warning Over Possible Trump Protests ‘Across the Country’



The U.S. Capitol Police and the Senate Sergeant at Arms on Friday jointly issued a statement warning they “anticipate” Trump protests across the country. The statement is not time-specific, and it states it has no information on “credible threats,” but some Democratic offices are allowing staffers to work from home Friday and Tuesday.

“The Sergeant at Arms and United States Capitol Police (USCP) anticipate demonstration activity across the country related to the indictment of former President Trump. While law enforcement is not tracking any specific, credible threats against the Capitol or state offices, there is potential for demonstration activity. USCP is working with law enforcement partners, so you may observe a greater law enforcement presence on Capitol Hill,” the statement reads.

“The SAA and USCP are monitoring the potential nationwide impacts to Senate state offices,” it adds.

The House Sergeant at Arms was conspicuously absent from the statement. Speaker Kevin McCarthy has control over that office.

Additionally, Axios is reporting, “several House Democrats are allowing staffers to work from home as a safety precaution,” noting that “the memory of Trump supporters ransacking the Capitol on Jan. 6 is still fresh on the mind.”

U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) is allowing staff to work from home for safety reasons. She told Axios, “I don’t ever want to see a Jan. 6 again.”

“I’ve been in the Trump hate tunnel, Donald Trump has gone after me, and quite frankly I don’t have security. I don’t have entourages.”

She’s not the only Democrat to raise concerns.

“Much of the language from the former President and his devotees is similar to what inspired Jan. 6th,” U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips said. “I’m concerned about safety for my colleagues and my staff.”

Meanwhile, House Republicans are issuing full-throated support for Trump and calling for protests.

U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who was called out by name in a six-page letter Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg sent to Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan Friday morning, announced she will be in New York on Tuesday to support Trump when he is arraigned. She has posted several tweets since Trump was indicted.

Speaker Kevin McCarthy issued a statement Thursday seemingly designed to gin up rage and action in the MAGA base.

“Alvin Bragg has irreparably damaged our country in an attempt to interfere in our Presidential election. As he routinely frees violent criminals to terrorize the public, he weaponized our sacred system of justice against President Donald Trump. The American people will not tolerate this injustice, and the House of Representatives will hold Alvin Bragg and his unprecedented abuse of power to account.”
