Obama and America's Patent System

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

Patent law is not something most Americans are passionate about or have ever contemplated -- which is exactly why the Obama White House and Congress got away with making radical changes to our time-tested traditions of protecting the fruits of entrepreneurial inventors' labor.

It's yet another progressive horror story of abandoning what works ...Read more

Maglite's Tony Maglica: Torchbearer of the American Dream

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

In our home, we try to instill a life lesson for our kids best summed up in Latin: Nihil boni sine labore. It means, "Nothing good achieved without hard work." Few people I've met in my lifetime embody this motto better and more brilliantly than Tony Maglica, inventor of the iconic Maglite flashlight.

The spry 84-year-old founder and ...Read more

Obamacare Exchanges on Life Support

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

At a recent White House science fair celebrating inventors, a Girl Scout who helped design a Lego-powered page-turning device asked President Obama what he had ever thought up or prototyped. Stumbling for an answer, he replied:

"I came up with things like, you know, health care."

Ah, yes. "Health care." Remember when the president's signature ...Read more

The Return of Obama's Hoax-Spreading Bitter Half

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

She's baaaaaaaack. And she's maaaaaad.

First lady Michelle Obama delivered the commencement address at Tuskegee University last weekend. She'll do it again at Ohio's Oberlin College -- the UC Berkeley of the Midwest, Ground Zero for racial grievance-mongering and fake hate crimes -- next week.

Commencement FLOTUS is not the same first lady who...Read more

SFC Christopher Speer Is Dead; Omar Khadr Is Free

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

A Canadian judge ruled this week that Omar Khadr poses no public safety threat. Tell that to the children of Sergeant First Class Christopher J. Speer and the surviving American soldiers who valiantly fought Khadr on the battlefield.

In 2012, Khadr pleaded guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty and guilty to five charges related to the killing of ...Read more

What Assata Taught Me

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

"What Assata taught me" is the new "Hands up, don't shoot."

For $35, you, too, can sport a politically correct black hoodie emblazoned with a fugitive convicted murderer's name. Assata's apparel is the new rage among perpetually enraged Baltimore and Ferguson social justice warriors. It won't be long now before hipster actresses and cable ...Read more

Debunking Obama's Bilious Baltimore Babble

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

It's never enough. American taxpayers have surrendered billions and billions and billions of dollars to the social-justice-spender-in-chief. But it's never, ever enough.

The latest paroxysm of urban violence, looting, and recriminations in Baltimore prompted President Obama on Tuesday to trot out his frayed Blame The Callous, Tight-Fisted ...Read more

SleazeBob Menendez's 36DD Visa Program

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

America has an alphabet soup of visa programs for foreigners to choose from: B-1 for business visitors, B-2 for tourists, EB-5 for investors, F-1 for students, and so on. All are overwhelmed, loosely monitored and riddled with fraud and corruption. According to the recently unsealed federal indictment against him, sleazy Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N...Read more

Gwyneth Paltrow's Poverty Voyeurism

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

Gwynnie P is down with the struggle, comrades.

She may make $19 million a year, own mansions in London, New York, Brentwood, Malibu and the Hamptons, charge $550 for her Goop.com "travel backgammon set," and fly by private jet, but she feels your pain.

OK, it's not as painful as her last $5,200 Thermage session in Santa Monica, but still, ...Read more

In Spite of Strong Efforts, VA Reform Eludes Presidential Authority

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

Eight months ago, President Obama put on a grand show for the troops. Surrounded by new Secretary of Veterans Affairs Bob McDonald, assorted politicians, military leaders and a bevy of TV cameras, the commander in chief signed the "Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act." He's good at inking things.

Obama condemned the "inexcusable ...Read more

The Green-Card Racket for Beltway Cronies

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

Can we stop putting America up for sale to the most politically connected bidders yet? Where is our self-respect?

Since 2001, I've warned about the systemic and bipartisan corruption of America's EB-5 immigrant investor visa program. The latest report from the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general -- which outlines the meddling ...Read more

The NAACP's Fomenters of Fear

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

They just can't help themselves -- and their agenda-driven media enablers never, ever learn.

This week, the NAACP made national front-page headlines with a local press release demanding that the feds investigate the hanging death of a local man in Port Gibson, Miss. Derrick Johnson, president of the NAACP Mississippi State Conference, ...Read more

The Big, Fat "American Worker Recruitment First" Lie of H-1B

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

You've heard it from Big Government lobbyists. You've heard it from Big Business lackeys in both political parties. And you've heard it from journalists, pundits and think-tankers ad nauseam:

The H-1B foreign guest worker program, they claim, requires American employers to first show that they searched for and tried to recruit American ...Read more

Obamacare's 1095-A Nightmare

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

Tax season is stressful enough. But if you are like countless miserable Americans trapped in the Obamacare 1095-A abyss, it's hell on stilts on a Segway teetering over the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

The screw-ups, incompetence and bureaucratic blame avoidance over the health insurance exchange tax forms make the healthcare.gov website ...Read more

Going Bananas: A Case Study in Media-Manufactured Racism

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

Political correctness is a pathological disorder.

You can't say "niggardly" or "black holes" or "chink in the armor" without provoking protests or risking your job. You can't invoke the Constitution or call illegal behavior "illegal" without being accused of hatred. And now, you can't goof around at a high school basketball game in silly ...Read more

CNN, DHS and SPLC's Blame-Righty Hit Job

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

The Department of Homeland Security refuses to release a report on "right-wing" terrorism that somehow found its way into CNN's hands last week during the farcical White House summit on Don't Say Islamic Extremism.

Your tax dollars are once again hard at work -- defaming conservatives, deflecting from worldwide murderous jihad and denying the...Read more
