Don’t believe a gender. Believe evidence.

“Believe Women” is perilous baloney by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 I have a message for virtue-signaling men who've rushed to embrace #MeToo operatives hurling uncorroborated sexual assault allegations into the chaotic court of public opinion. Stuff it. Your blanket “Believe Women” bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul. A certain class of never Trump-harumphers are leading the charge on behalf of Supreme Co...

The Post-9/11 Cycle of Cynicism: Remember. Forget. Repeat.

The Post-9/11 Cycle of Cynicism: Remember. Forget. Repeat. by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 Remember. Forget. Repeat. For 17 years, America has engaged in a collective ritual every Sept. 11: Hang flags, light candles, bow heads and make vows to “Never forget.” Then, every Sept. 12, it's back to business as usual: See something, do nothing. Did you remember that five of the 9/11 hijackers — Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, Hani Hanjour, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Satam al-Suqami — carr...

9/11 flashback: Spitting on their graves

I wrote this column ten years ago on the 2nd anniversary of the 9/11 jihadi attacks. What has changed? *** Spitting on their graves by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate 9/10/03 Across the nation, public officials will strike somber poses and shed television-friendly tears and bow their blow-dried heads in memory of the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks. They'll hold hands, light candles, and pass around a plateful of platitudes: “Never forget,” they'll intone. “Let's roll,” they'll...

Death be not loud

Death be not loud by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 Question: What is more cringe-inducing than a celebrity funeral? Answer: Two back-to-back celebrity funerals. The ghoulish twin spectacles last week memorializing Aretha Franklin and John McCain brought out the worst in family, friends and frenemies. No matter your partisan affiliation, these vulgar exercises in self-indulgence should serve as object lessons on how not to depart with dignity. There was the nation's most infa...

The Left’s Long War on Conservative Free Speech

The Left's Long War on Conservative Free Speech by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 In the competition of ideas, you can't win the game if you're not on the playing field. That's why Silicon Valley bigwigs' stubborn refusal to put business above their own personal partisan biases doesn't just rankle. It reeks. Equal access to social media is not just about sharing food pics, pet videos, makeup tutorials and travelogues. It's about ensuring the ability to disseminate and distrib...

Oklahoma’s wretched record on wrongful convictions

Oklahoma's wretched record on wrongful convictions by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 “Frontier justice” costs too many citizens of all races, creeds, and backgrounds their freedom and their lives. In the old days of the Wild West, vigilantes worked outside the judicial system to punish rivals regardless of their guilt or innocence. Today, outlaws operate inside the bureaucracy to secure criminal convictions at all costs. Oklahoma — the notorious home of “Hang ‘Em High” execut...

Free Valentino Dixon

Free Valentino Dixon by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 “If it wasn't for my artwork and God, there's no way we'd be having this conversation right now.” I'm in Colorado on a three-way phone call with Valentino Dixon, inmate No. 91B1615 at New York's Wende Correctional Facility, and his 27-year-old daughter, Tina Dixon, a first-grade teacher in Ohio. Faith, family and drawing — golf courses, jazz musicians, landscapes — have kept him alive and sane behind bars. It has been a l...

Shared wisdom on a silver anniversary

Shared wisdom on a silver anniversary by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 To commemorate my 25th wedding anniversary this week to my husband, Jesse, I asked readers on Facebook to share their own secrets to a long happy marriage. In short, the crowdsourced recipe for marital endurance includes faith, forgiveness, romance, kindness, selflessness and a healthy dose of humor. A union built to last begins with a promise and persists through compromise and commitment. It is about ke...

Ms. Diversity-ConArtista: Boston University’s fake-o-nomics darling

Ms. Diversity-ConArtista: Boston University's fake-o-nomics darling by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 It costs a pretty penny to earn a diploma in stupid.

Jahi’s life mattered

Jahi's life mattered by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 Amid all the raging political headlines and hyperventilating tweets of the Summer of Resistance, a searing ember of news stopped me in my tracks this week. Jahi McMath has passed away. I never had a chance to meet the young California teen, but her fight for life gripped me three years ago and was never far from my mind or heart — especially as my own daughter, the same age as Jahi, battled her own health crisis. Do you...

NYC’s war on academic excellence

NYC's war on academic excellence by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2018 “I also have a dream.” This rallying cry, handwritten on a simple white placard held up by an Asian-American mom at a protest this week against liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's plan to radically transform New York City's public schools, says it all. A new civil rights struggle in education has exploded — yet the national media and the usual celebrity voices for equality and justice are nowhere to be ...

Step One to Stop False Accusations: Exposure

Step One to Stop False Accusations: Exposure by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2018 Incontrovertible fact: People lie. They fudge little things, like their height or weight. They exaggerate their athletic prowess or professional accomplishments. They deceive family, friends, lovers, voters, government officials, business partners and themselves. They lie about murder, theft, kidnapping, rape and discrimination. They lie for attention, deflection, power and profit. Often, the reasons...

Memorial Day 2018: Remember the Fallen

(Photo credit: @USArmy) The phrase “Happy Memorial Day” is one of my biggest pet peeves. I hope you all have a reflective, appreciative, patriotic Memorial Day honoring the men and women who served and sacrificed for our freedom.

Crapweasel of the week: Educrat Arne Duncan

Crapweasel of the week: Educrat Arne Duncan by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2018 Educrat (ED-yoo-krat) noun, usually pejorative. A government school official or administrator whose primary function is to spend tax dollars telling other parents what to do with their children. Beltway education bureaucrats abhor families who choose to keep their kids out of public schools — unless it's to grandstand over gun control.

Marginalizing Melania by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2018 Need more evidence that there are two Americas?
