For decades, they've demonized conservatives and Christians as agents of "hate" and treated our very existence as incitements to violence. The ADL's manufactured outrage machine has broadened its target list to anyone remotely critical of Israel for any reason, President Donald Trump, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, "America First" college students, innocuous hand gestures, cartoon frogs and anyone who dares to think or write that "It's OK to be white."</p> <p>Now, in the wake of the "Chinese flu" pandemic, ADL is lining up with all the other federal bailout vultures clamoring for free money. This week, the group issued a statement calling on Congress to include "relief for charities" in any COVID-19 legislation. "In times of crisis," ADL self-righteously urged, "nonprofits are on the front lines, ready to respond and serve communities across the nation &#8212; but funds are needed to continue doing so." The "relief package" pushed by ADL and several hundred other groups demands $60 billion in "emergency stimulus funding to support our work... during this time of crisis and need."</p> <p>What a crock. The primary "front lines" ADL occupies are on the battlefields against American sovereignty and free speech. By my count, the open borders zealots of ADL have filed 17 amicus briefs in our courts supporting obstruction of Trump's immigration enforcement and national security measures. The group is particularly proud of its brief in Trump v. Hawaii, in which it "led a coalition of six Jewish organizations using our unique moral voice to passionately argue against the so-called Muslim ban, citing three historical examples when our nation later recognized that we were wrong to turn our back, including denying refuge to Jews fleeing the Nazis." The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the travel restrictions and affirmed the broad plenary powers of the executive branch over immigration.<p>Updated: Wed Mar 25, 2020</p> 866aa6da0251a928db48274f5eca6a76 Crisis Socialism: No Bailouts for Open Borders Globalists! for 03/18/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/03/20/crisis-socialism-no-bailouts-for-open-borders-globalists Wed, 18 Mar 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p>No. No. No. No. No. The answer from the American people across the political spectrum to the airline industry's plea for a $50 billion taxpayer-subsidized bailout in the Age of WuFlu must be "Hell, no!" times 50 billion.</p> <p>Why should working-class American citizens being laid off from restaurants, bars, grocery stores, ports, gyms, entry-level service jobs and gig economy contracts rescue one of the beltway swamp's most powerful corporate lobbies &#8212; backed by the planet's third-richest mogul, Warren Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway multinational holding company owns massive stakes in American Airlines, Delta, Southwest and United?</p> <p>Reminder: Berkshire Hathaway walked away with $10 billion after the 2012 AIG publicly funded bailout. How much more in private wealth will Bailout Buffett reap from a federal flight fright freakout? This exploitative campaign to "stabilize" U.S. passenger carriers is about shoring up globalist profits, not patriotism.<p>Updated: Wed Mar 18, 2020</p> 65f563898d9b9b16d86bb55cd34dc034 CDC: Centers for Damaged Credibility for 03/11/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/03/20/cdc-centers-for-damaged-credibility Wed, 11 Mar 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>I think I'm where most sane people are on the coronavirus outbreak:</p> <p>&#8212;Concerned but not panicked.<p>Updated: Wed Mar 11, 2020</p> 2f1a3b8fd95f11b56f225539487e14af What Part of 'NO AMNESTY' Doesn't DC Understand? for 03/04/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/03/20/what-part-of-no-amnesty-doesnt-dc-understand Wed, 04 Mar 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>The rumblings from the Beltway are ominous, my fellow Americans. As the U.S Supreme Court prepares to rule on President Donald Trump's termination of the Obama administration amnesty and work permits for 800,000 young illegal immigrants sometime between now and June 2020, all the usual open borders special interests are lobbying for a "DACA deal" in Congress.</p> <p>I am hearing that big business and big tech are pressuring the White House to attach a mass illegal immigrant pardon to Jared Kushner's so-called immigration reform plan, which would tinker here and there with tighter enforcement but ultimately maintain (or even increase) the yearly allotment of 1 million annual green cards to satisfy the Chamber of Commerce and Mick Mulvaney's insatiable appetite for more cheap foreign workers.<p>Updated: Wed Mar 04, 2020</p> 5fb46e42f8a2f1645cc8e85e9b621d38 There Is No American Worker Shortage for 02/26/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/02/20/there-is-no-american-worker-shortage Wed, 26 Feb 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>"We're full, our system's full, our country's full!" That was President Donald Trump last year at our southern border.</p> <p>"Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families." That was Trump in January 2017 at his inaugural address.<p>Updated: Wed Feb 26, 2020</p> c2ff9ea5c69f191fc973f17941301a31 Parents' Anti-Drag Queen Hour Resistance Rises for 02/19/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/02/20/parents-anti-drag-queen-hour-resistance-rises Wed, 19 Feb 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p>The Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy this week amid a deluge of sex-abuse lawsuits. The Catholic clergy's pedophilia conspiracies have cost the church more than $3 billion and countless followers. Scandal after scandal shows how cunning child predators have exploited trusted civic institutions under cover of "diversity," "inclusion" and "progressivism."</p> <p>Now more than ever, parents across the country are rising up to protect their local public schools and public libraries from turning into the next pedo playgrounds that will steal innocence, ruin lives, ravage communities and impose mind-boggling costs on taxpayers. It's a grassroots movement whose leaders have been demonized by both left-wing smear merchants at the Southern Poverty Law Center (which likens resistant parents to "neo-Nazis") and marginalized by GOP Beltway elitists who run the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (which banned the top anti-drag queen hour activist group in 2018 for fully embracing a true "culture war" against transvestite and transsexual forces hijacking the schools).</p> <p>"MassResistance.org has been on the forefront of fighting back and stopping Drag Queen Story Hour programs all over the country," the group's director Arthur Schaper told me this week. "Our activists have uncovered the lurid sites and social media they promote, and we have exposed that a number of them have criminal backgrounds, including two sex offenders who had assaulted minors! These are hardly role models, contrary to what the Drag Queen Story Hour website claims." Through local community organizing, investigative work and social media leveraging, MassResistance is making a difference.<p>Updated: Wed Feb 19, 2020</p> f56a09827d7f29407f926debe92d44a8 Tyranny of the Tamiflunatics for 02/12/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/02/20/tyranny-of-the-tamiflunatics Wed, 12 Feb 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Beware of clickbait character assassins masquerading as "journalists."</p> <p>This is a lesson America should have learned after the mass media defamation of the Covington Catholic schoolboys last year. Just a few weeks ago, innocent teenager Nick Sandmann won a multimillion-dollar settlement against CNN for leaping to conclusions and attempting to ruin his life in pursuit of a political agenda driven by confirmation bias. The Washington Post and NBC News face similar lawsuits for potential damages totaling more than a half-billion dollars.<p>Updated: Wed Feb 12, 2020</p> a42641ce4d1f452ae8eff78bdf4d655e What Will It Take to Stop Google's Kiddie Predators? for 02/05/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/02/20/what-will-it-take-to-stop-googles-kiddie-predators Wed, 05 Feb 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>How much more evidence do we need to compile before the federal government protects our children and fully deplatforms Google from American public schools?</p> <p>The Silicon Valley behemoth has already admitted it illegally collected children's personal information on YouTube without parental consent, mines students' browsing habits and emails, and tracks kids' locations, audio and search history through Google educational apps and logons that are required for millions of students to participate in public schools.<p>Updated: Wed Feb 05, 2020</p> a53e9fda70d46cc4d3daf43db32532ac Red China's Infection of US Classrooms for 01/29/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/01/20/red-chinas-infection-of-us-classrooms Wed, 29 Jan 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Dangerous menaces are spreading from mainland China to the United States. Surgical masks and Big Pharma vaccines, however, won't protect this nation from its infiltration. The problem doesn't lie with bats. It lies with America's batty pursuit of globalization at all costs.</p> <p>Chinese Communist Party agents are using our suicidal pathologies &#8212; blind worship of "diversity," naive exaltation of "cultural exchange" programs, and reckless surrender of our education system &#8212; against us for economic espionage, intellectual property theft and world dominance.

Two weeks ago, slickly designed flyers disseminated on social media beckoned them to sign up for the latest journey and meet at a bus stop in San Pedro Sula. That village is caravan ground zero, where Honduras's destabilizing Libre Party and its former top legislator-turned-agitator Bartolo Fuentes, have brazenly spearheaded past caravan organizing campaigns since President Donald Trump took office.</p> <p>On Monday, the throngs reached the Mexico-Guatemala border, where mobs of mostly young men threw rocks and sticks at police &#8212; while sympathetic international "journalists" selectively captured and curated tired women and crying children on the trek with state-of-the-art cameras and livestreams.<p>Updated: Wed Jan 22, 2020</p> 56b324c2d10effebe71547f101082639 Cancel Culture Strikes Again: Banned in Maine for 01/15/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/01/20/cancel-culture-strikes-again-banned-in-maine Wed, 15 Jan 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>In November, I was banned in Boston after speech-squelchers on the left and right forced the cancellation of my lecture at Bentley University, a small private institution.
