Nor am I a fan of those who perpetrated the cop-bashing "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" fiction involving social justice martyr Michael Brown.

Champion of the masses. Hero of the hoi polloi. A six-term U.S. senator and two-term vice president, which equates to 44 back-slapping, log-rolling, favor-trading years in Washington, this decrepit Beltway swamp-dweller wants flyover Americans to believe that he's really just like you and me.</p> <p>To which I can only reply with one hearty syllable: HA!<p>Updated: Wed May 01, 2019</p> 581318c4039db9284d28dd41480c7d4c Beware Soros-Funded Hijacking of US Census for 04/24/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/04/19/beware-soros-funded-hijacking-of-us-census Wed, 24 Apr 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>"Are you a U.S. citizen?"</p> <p>Only in self-defeating, sovereignty-eroding America is the idea of asking whether people living in America are American citizens for the American census a matter of controversy.<p>Updated: Wed Apr 24, 2019</p> 46fc24bb38dd0f8979e3829ae409659c Questions for Chase (Away) Bank for 04/17/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/04/19/questions-for-chase-away-bank Wed, 17 Apr 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>I have been a Chase Bank customer for years. Who knows how much longer it'll be? Will the company's thought police come for me next? How about you? If you are a non-leftist who does business with the financial giant owned by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., you need to ask questions and get answers.</p> <p>On Tuesday, investigative journalist James O'Keefe and his Project Veritas team released a disturbing new video on the runaround that Chase officials gave Texas conservative entrepreneur Enrique Tarrio about his canceled account.

The theme of the event, whose attendees work to prevent and undo wrongful convictions, is "The Presumption of Innocence."</p> <p>I've covered many flabbergasting things over the course of 25 years as a columnist, author, blogger and documentary host, but this one takes the cake.</p> <p>It was just three months ago that King recklessly exploited the shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes in Houston, Texas, to stoke racial fear and hatred. The little girl and her family, who are black, got caught in crossfire at a Walmart parking lot. The Black Lives Matter activist and columnist for the Intercept immediately pounced &#8212; using his huge Twitter platform, followed by 1.1 million people, to cast the incident as a racial hate crime. King splashed a photo of Robert Cantrell, a white man who had been arrested for robbery the same day as the Barnes shooting, all over social media.<p>Updated: Wed Apr 10, 2019</p> 44dcc70178ec6937ba38066781a9f773 Nancy Pelosi's Perv Problem for 04/03/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/04/19/nancy-pelosis-perv-problem Wed, 03 Apr 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>If you're a sleazy male Democrat, you can always count on Nancy Pelosi to run interference for you and your pervy proclivities.

She gently advised him to "pretend you have a cold" and joked during a Politico interview that he should emulate her "straight-arm" policy of keeping distance from others.

All crooked roads in Chicago lead back to the Obamas.</p> <p>On Tuesday, as part of a sealed deal, the Illinois state attorney's office dismissed 16 felony charges brought by a grand jury against the Trump-hating actor, who blamed phantom white MAGA supporters for a brutal racist "assault" that left him with a teensy-weensy scratch under his eye. The day before the "attack," Smollett's two bodybuilding friends were caught on surveillance tape buying costumery (red hat, ski masks, bandanas, sunglasses and gloves) that just happened to match Smollett's descriptions of what his still-fugitive assailants were wearing.</p> <p>But I guess there's no use crying over spilled bleach.<p>Updated: Wed Mar 27, 2019</p> 47ea49787baeb352064c3caf4d1e9409 Never Forget: CAIR's Dirty Deeds for 03/20/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/03/19/never-forget-cairs-dirty-deeds Wed, 20 Mar 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>The Council on American-Islamic Relations is having a banner month.

CAIR executive director Nihad Awad was first out of the gate to blame President Donald Trump; target Fox News hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson, whom the left wants to silence; and renew opposition to White House efforts to tighten our immigration and entrance policies, including the travel ban affecting terror-sponsoring countries upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.<p>Updated: Wed Mar 20, 2019</p> debd9a70fee117dbca023e6455b3d175 How to Protect Your Kids From Google Predators for 03/13/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/03/19/how-to-protect-your-kids-from-google-predators Wed, 13 Mar 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The father of the World Wide Web is right: It's time to take back "complete control of your data."</p> <p>Tim Berners-Lee, who conceived the first internet browser 30 years ago this week, warned of its increasing threats to "privacy, security and fundamental rights." To mark the anniversary, he argued that demanding transparency is key to stopping the web's "downward plunge to a dysfunctional future." So, where to start?</p> <p>Berners-Lee specifically cautioned against the dangers of internet browsers' keeping "track of everything you buy." The world's top browser is Google Chrome.

My children are up to date. There's no dispute that vaccines have saved untold lives. But over the years, I've voiced my concerns about vaccine claims and government coercion in my newspaper columns and blog posts. These concerns include my objections to Gardasil mandates for schoolchildren in Texas and California; schools' threatening parents with jail time for refusing chickenpox shots for their kids; ineffectiveness of the flu vaccine; contamination issues at vaccine plants abroad; lack of data on vaccines' long-term and synergistic effects on children; and pharma-funded politicians' financial conflicts of interest.<p>Updated: Wed Mar 06, 2019</p> 6020dc20efb73899d7d1a41294ae18a5 I've Been Silicon Valley Sharia'd for 02/27/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/02/19/ive-been-silicon-valley-shariad Wed, 27 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Last week, the little birdies in Twitter's legal department notified me that one of my tweets from 2015 is "in violation of Pakistan law." It seems like ancient history, but Islamic supremacists never forget &#8212; or forgive.</p> <p>My innocuous tweet featured a compilation image of the 12 Muhammad cartoons published by Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in 2005. It also linked to my Jan. 8, 2015, syndicated column on the Charlie Hebdo jihad massacre in Paris. There's no hate, violence, profanity or pornography, just harmless drawings and peacefully expressed opinions about the Western media's futile attempts to appease the unappeasable enforcers of sharia law, which bans all insults of Islam.</p> <p>The Twitter notice assured me that the company "has not taken any action on the reported content at this time," yet advised me that I should "consult legal counsel about this matter" in response to complaints from unnamed "authorized entities."<p>Updated: Wed Feb 27, 2019</p> 72bf8aa4b04aafea0afd0cdd4339edfb Malkin's Handy History of Fake Noose for 02/20/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/02/19/malkins-handy-history-of-fake-noose Wed, 20 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Is it any wonder that American news consumers are at the end of their ropes of patience with the "mainstream media"?</p> <p>Three weeks ago, when I first documented troubling questions, contradictions and doubts about Trump-hating, attention-craving actor Jussie Smollett's absurd hate crime claims, few in the "professional" journalism herd paid heed.
