Just when you think the former first lady's deep well of racial resentment has run dry, her headline-generating grievances gush forth anew. Gripe springs eternal.</p> <p>This week, Michelle Obama told Oprah Winfrey's bestie Gayle King on CBS News that "many of us still live in fear" after the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the George Floyd case. By "us," she apparently means black Americans. But Obama (estimated net worth with her husband: $70 million-$135 million) and King (yearly salary at CBS: $5.5 million) aren't just any black Americans. Their twin self-delusions are a sight to behold.</p> <p>"(Going) to the grocery store" strikes fear in her heart, Mrs. O bellyached. (Never mind the lifetime Secret Service protection and tax-subsidized travel costs she receives to the tune of up to $500,000 per year.) <p>Updated: Wed May 12, 2021</p> e35f8d8d27015ddf38789ce48b617a10 Biden's Ruinous Refugee Dump for 05/04/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/05/21/bidens-ruinous-refugee-dump Tue, 04 May 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Ready or not, here they come. Thanks to Joe Biden, America the Weary will soon open its doors to another 62,500 low-skilled foreigners from the Third World. The sovereign citizens in neighborhoods across our nation where these newcomers will be dumped will have no say in these decisions. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Open borders judges made sure that the wants and needs of ordinary Americans would be subordinated to those of the refugee resettlement racket. There is no recourse under U.S. law to reestablish local control of the process.</p> <p>Instead, the United Nations, the U.S. State Department and their globalist partners in the "faith" community (who rake in billions of dollars in tax subsidies off the backs of refugees and at the expense of voiceless citizens) will dictate who gets in and who moves where. It will be mostly young low-skilled Americans forced to compete with the influx of 22,000 Africans, 6,000 East Asians, 4,000 Europeans and Central Asians, 5,000 Latin Americans and Caribbean nationals, 13,000 Near Easterners and South Asians, and another 12,500 refugees from unspecified countries.

That groupthink is compounded by relentless messaging from politicians, celebrities and social media influencers posting virtue-signaling photos of themselves flaunting their arm Band-Aids and immunization papers. The playing field is rigged by internet titans who ban all dissenters and label all skepticism as "misinformation" or "conspiracy theory." It's mass agitation and propaganda &#8212; agitatsiya &#8212; that would make the old Soviet Marxists proud.</p> <p>The 21st-century twist is that Silicon Valley, Fortune 500 corporations and their nonprofit organs are pouring gobs of money to manufacture support for the public-private COVID vax regime. The Ad Council alone &#8212; backed by major companies including Facebook, Google, NBC Universal, GM, Verizon, Walgreens, Walmart, Amazon, Apple and CBS/Viacom &#8212; has earmarked $50 million "to persuade skeptics to believe in coronavirus vaccines." The businesses and public relations agencies work closely with the Biden administration's U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on crafting Big Brother-approved content.<p>Updated: Tue Apr 20, 2021</p> e68a5aad254acf6c4353420934463c29 America's Media-Poisoned Well for 04/14/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/04/21/americas-media-poisoned-well Wed, 14 Apr 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>It's springtime in America. In halcyon days, we'd ring in the new season with fresh starts and fragrant flowers. But in 2021, the arrival of April now ushers in yet another cycle of destructive urban riots &#8212; stoked and coddled by toxic journalists downplaying left-wing violence and demonizing all who dare call out the ruinous, race-based chaos for what it is.</p> <p>On Monday, as vandals and looters tore apart Minneapolis again in the wake of a cop-involved shooting, a suburban police chief tried to report on the dangerous conditions outside his station.</p> <p>"Just so that everybody's clear, I was front and center at the protest, at the riot," Brooklyn Center (Minn.) police chief Tim Gannon told the media. He was there. They were not. This did not, however, deter the know-it-alls from castigating Gannon for using the word "riot." Cue the collective outrage and the ululations of the aggrieved.<p>Updated: Wed Apr 14, 2021</p> 7b5f2f9ca853ff54194ae42d213b7dbb Silicon Valley's Smuggling Apps for 04/07/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/04/21/silicon-valleys-smuggling-apps Wed, 07 Apr 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The mainstream media is slowly catching on to the "Open Borders, Inc." racket. Just this week, NBC News reported that smugglers are using Facebook to advertise their services in violation of Facebook's policy ban on human exploitation and trafficking. The news network appears shocked, shocked, shocked that coordinated illegal activity is booming on Facebook &#8212; one of the world's biggest and most influential globalist platforms.</p> <p>Maybe if the bleeding-heart libs in the Fourth Estate hadn't been so busy carrying water for Mexican cartels and Big Business through endless anti-Trump propaganda pieces defending the mass illegal immigrant invasion over the past four years, they might have blown the whistle sooner on Silicon Valley's co-conspirators with ruthless coyotes.</p> <p>Only now has NBC News seen fit to enlighten the public about Spanish-language posts on public Facebook pages advertising "Travel to Mexico to the United States. Costs $8,000. 100 percent safe" or "Make your dream a reality in the United States. We are here to help you.

A year ago this week, I began chronicling the worldwide weaponization of COVID-19 by big government and big business to trace and track the health data of untold hundreds of millions of human beings. Let's review.</p> <p>In March 2020, Singapore unleashed a Bluetooth app called "TraceTogether" on Google Play and the Apple Store to track people who tested positive for coronavirus and notify others through their cellphones. For those who argue that participation is completely "voluntary," bear in mind that Singapore functions as a high-tech dictatorship where refusal to comply with stay-at-home orders and refusal to share GPS location data with health bureaucrats are criminal offenses subject to six months' imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine. </p> <p>The Singapore system was quickly expanded to require users to submit their national ID numbers and passport numbers; a few months later, the government issued wearable tracing "tokens" with QR codes to all 5.7 million residents in Singapore. Plans are in the works to formally mandate TraceTogether enrollment for anyone in cinemas, restaurants, workplaces, schools and shopping malls.<p>Updated: Wed Mar 31, 2021</p> 39705bd6b1e3ae75fc4adccc54148ccd MSNBC's Serial Smear Merchant for 03/24/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/03/21/msnbcs-serial-smear-merchant Wed, 24 Mar 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>"Screw up, move up" is standard operating procedure in corporate and government bureaucracies.

Greg Abbott, a Republican, viciously employed this odious tactic last week against the free speech platform, Gab.com, and its 4 million users. Flanked by two GOP state legislators sponsoring a bill to support a state-supported Holocaust and genocide commission, he declared, "Anti-Semitic platforms like Gab have no place in Texas and certainly do not represent Texas values."</p> <p>This is the same presidential aspirant who just two weeks ago had launched a Lone Star state war on Big Tech censorship. In a widely covered press event, Abbott called Silicon Valley's deplatforming of conservatives "un-American, un-Texan, and unacceptable."<p>Updated: Tue Mar 16, 2021</p> 519fc18dc54fe2a96e53b3f6363b1dc2 The Nuking of the American Nuclear Family for 03/09/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/03/21/the-nuking-of-the-american-nuclear-family Tue, 09 Mar 2021 00:00:00 -0800 <p>"Gay poly throuple makes history, lists 3 dads on a birth certificate." That's an actual headline from The New York Post, which last week featured an unsettling trio of men who recruited two female friends to help them conceive and deliver a baby girl named Piper.</p> <p>Piper is now 3 years old and has a 1-year-old brother named Parker. According to the "gay poly throuple," Piper told her preschool classmates how proud she was of her plentiful progenitors by bragging: "You have two parents. I have three parents."</p> <p>Actually, the "throuple" is really a quintet. If you count Piper's egg donor and birth surrogate, we've now traveled from "Heather Has Two Mommies" (the infamous children's book normalizing same-sex adoptions published in 1989) to "Piper Has Five Parents." And in 2021, if you have any discomfort or reservations at all about the nuking of the nuclear family by throuples or quadrouples or dozenouples, then woke society tells us there's something wrong with us, not them.<p>Updated: Tue Mar 09, 2021</p> ece767c00964881d6998995bd4cb8e5a Missing Marizela: Ten Years for 03/02/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/03/21/missing-marizela-ten-years Tue, 02 Mar 2021 00:00:00 -0800 <p>March 5, 2011.

Ten years ago this week, EmEm vanished from the University of Washington campus in the middle of a sunny afternoon. She was last seen walking away from a Safeway grocery store in the U District and into the dread void of uncertainty. Once again, as I have done faithfully and heartachingly for the last decade, I must report that there is still no news on her whereabouts. Nothing. In 2019, I finally received some Seattle Police Department documents in response to a public records request about her case.

It's the fault of the perpetrators and the perpetrators alone &#8212; most of whom happen to be thugs "of color."</p> <p>Let's pop the delusional bubble of left-wing Asians who marched this weekend in New York City, Oakland and San Francisco in "unity" protests against "white supremacy." These "wokesters" blame "anti-Asian bias" created by an imagined backlash by imagined "white supremacists" against China because of COVID-19. Donning "Black and Asian unity" T-shirts, they embraced the self-defeating attitude of Oakland organizer Eddy Zheng, who wheedled: "Supporting our Asian community is not about dividing us. This support is for all of us suffering under white supremacy.

A lifelong couch potato, I started exercising, enrolled in Lamaze classes and even took vitamins for the first time. I halted my consumption of caffeine, Doritos, Spam and sushi. After decades of obliviousness to food labels, I began scrutinizing every additive and preservative listed in the teeny-tiny font on each item of my grocery list.</p> <p>Now, imagine if our culture encouraged women of childbearing age to be as vigilant about the effects of Big Pharma's experimental drugs on themselves and their unborn babies as they are about our diets. We know all about gluten and carbs, trans-fats and Omega-3 fatty acids, mercury in fish and heavy metals in baby food. But do you know what's in the COVID-19 vaccines that an estimated 100 million Americans are expected to inject into their bodies by this spring?</p> <p>In December, I flagged concerns raised by Dr. Michael Yeadon, former vice president and chief scientific officer at Pfizer Global, regarding two additives in the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine: polyethylene glycol and mNeonGreen. Yeadon and his colleagues warned of potential fertility-specific risks involving antibodies against "spike proteins" that could disrupt the development of placenta in vaccinated women. It is "unclear," they warned, "what if any instructions/information" that clinical trial subjects received regarding those risks.<p>Updated: Wed Feb 17, 2021</p> 3d0ef8ac1feb3e586f7d2eb09b6e920c Maxine Waters, Racial Insurrectionist for 02/09/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/02/21/maxine-waters-racial-insurrectionist Tue, 09 Feb 2021 00:00:00 -0800 <p>What a sick joke. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, one of the loudest mouths leading the impeachment circus against former President Donald Trump over the events at the Capitol on Jan. 6, is a brazen racial insurrectionist. The sixteen-term Democrat from South Central Los Angeles has been pouring verbal gasoline and tossing rhetorical Molotov cocktails into the public square since the 1992 L.A. riots.</p> <p>Now she's the arbiter of civility and keeper of social order? LOL.</p> <p>Waters blasted Trump for telling his supporters on Jan. 6 to "be tough" and "take back their government" &#8212; standard, peaceful stump speech fare. She blames our 45th president for the actions of a few who ignored his explicit call to remain "peaceful," while denying that her own fighting words and direct embrace of riots have contributed to decades of violent incitement. Trump's impeachment trial lawyers rightly allude to her instigation of mobs formed against administration officials at restaurants and public spaces. In their trial brief, Trump's team contrasted the president's anodyne encouragement for conservative activists to "fight like hell" for their country with Waters' endorsement of physical harassment against Trump's cabinet members:<p>Updated: Tue Feb 09, 2021</p> ed0af692974563112d716586c8f925e8 Biden's Department of Homeland Sleaze Chief for 02/02/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/02/21/bidens-department-of-homeland-sleaze-chief Tue, 02 Feb 2021 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Everything old is new again.

Three years. That's less than 200 weeks on this earth. She was a girly girl who sported oversized bows in her straw-blonde hair and a megawatt smile on her face. A great-aunt described the blue-eyed baby as "bubbly," "sassy" and "full of life" despite bouncing around foster homes for much of her brief existence.</p> <p>Last week, authorities in South Carolina revealed that Tori had perished as result of multiple blunt-force injuries to her tiny head. She was beaten to death. Her adoptive parents, Ariel and Jerry "Austin" Robinson, are now charged with homicide by child abuse. A six-page police incident report describes how first responders rushed to the Robinsons' home on the afternoon of Jan. 14, 2021, after Mr. Robinson called 911. Little Tori was not breathing. EMTs performed CPR. She was rushed to the hospital, where she died. Investigators immediately suspected child abuse.</p> <p>The key to Tori's murder lies in 17 redacted lines of the police report from a Simpsonville, South Carolina, police officer documenting his crime-scene interview with Ariel Robinson, who described an unknown incident involving her adopted daughter that had occurred the day before.
