Michelle Malkin Plagiarizes Schlussel Homeland Security/ICE Story Details, Still Gets It Wrong – UPDATES to Come

By Debbie Schlussel

*** UPDATE, Sept 2, 2012: Suzanne Barr, ICE Chief of Staff, Resigns After Firestorm Started by Schlussel Story – Buh-Bye! ***

*** UPDATE, August 21, 2012: EXCLUSIVE: Explicit DHS/ICE Lawsuit Sexual Harassment Affidavits; More Harassment of Men @ Obama’s Homeland Security ***

Soon, I will be posting some exclusive updates to the Homeland Security/ICE/Suzy Barr scandal story I broke on this site. But for now, I must address something about which many readers have contacted me. They know what’s up–and so do I–about a certain ego-maniacal thief. Last night, as I was running on the treadmill at Powerhouse Gym, I was listening to the Sylvester song, “Do Ya Wanna Funk?” on my iPod. Then, I watched as plagiarist Michelle “I Am a Woman of Color” Malkin appeared on the gym TV screen with fellow plagiarist Sean Hannity and “Funked” me over for the zillionth time, with Fraudkin ripping off the details only I reported here on the story I broke about New York ICE SAIC Jim Hayes’ employment discrimination lawsuit against Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano. Plagiarism and rip-offs are Fraudkin’s style, and they have been ever since she first contacted me in a creepy, aggressive, excessively-”All About Eve” way, years ago.

Watch Your Wallet & Your Ideas When You’re Around This Shameless, Petty Thief

If you saw her faux-indignant ranting, last night, on Vannity’s FOX News show, you’ll note–as many readers did in e-mails to me–that every single talking point was ripped verbatim from this website, and was reported nowhere else. I’m the only one who reported that Janet Napolitano has an intimate, lesbian relationship with Dora Schriro, the woman who was suddenly inserted at the top of Homeland Security’s immigration policy because of with whom she was sleeping. I’m the only one who reported Schriro’s and serial sexual harasser Suzanne “Stripper Pole” Barr’s absolute lack of law enforcement experience (Barr graduated from ASU’s law school just six years ago). And that’s why Fraudkin read and lifted the info from this site, which she regularly reads. Yet, she still got the story wrong, which is the hallmark of plagiarists. They steal the details but aren’t familiar with the story and get it wrong. Malkin said that the ICE official who filed the suit is a “former” ICE official. Um, no, moron, he’s the sitting Special Agent in Charge of ICE for New York, which is why the case is such a big deal. He’s risking his job and career future by filing it, as the SAIC of probably the second biggest ICE office (next to Los Angeles’s ICE office) in the country. Any former ICE employee can file such a suit and it won’t necessarily mean much more than diddly squat. But Malkin doesn’t do her homework. She just cribs it from others. Her best selling book on Obama administration, for example, is a hodge podge of the real investigative journalism of others. Shoddy imitation is her sincerest form of robbery.

Let me tell you a little about the unbalanced, egomaniacal Fraudkin. When I first met Michelle Malkin in 1999, it was through extremely creepy, overly solicitous “All About Eve” e-mails and overtures she sent to me. I found it weird, annoying, and so saccharine NutraSweet fake, it creeped me out, big-time. Think Jennifer Jason Leigh in “Single White Female” (except with her it is “I Am a Woman of Color Female”). I didn’t know the woman, didn’t ask to hear from her, and yet she was repeatedly sending me e-mails inviting me to stay at her Germantown, Maryland home where she then lived. Um, no thanks. I made the mistake of meeting her for coffee once in Washington, DC, and her fake, uber-fawning demeanor made me ill. She repeatedly e-mailed me that she read my columns religiously, tried to imitate my style, but that her editors at Creators Syndicate, where they heavily edit and then distribute her columns, wouldn’t let her. Get your own style, witch. At the time, we both had columns running on the Jewish World Review site, I was doing a lot of national television appearances, and she couldn’t get arrested. She was like an ant urinating on the sidewalk. No one noticed . . . or cared. No one read her bland, boring crap, spoonfed to her by her peckerless guru hubby, Jesse (the Mr. Mom who tells her what to say and do and reportedly ghostwrites for her). Soon, I got e-mails from Malkin about my FOX News appearances (she got no TV gigs at the time and wasn’t a FOX News Contributor as she is now), with her giving me critiques I didn’t ask for and didn’t want.

One of them was during the Chandra Levy scandal in the news, after I’d written a column about the Congressman for whom I once worked, Donald E. “Buzz” Lukens, who’d had affairs with interns and prostitutes when I worked for him. I did my third appearance on the “O’Reilly Factor” because of it and spoke of my experience (I did not sleep with the boss, FYI). Like clockwork, that night, Malkin sent me one of her creepy, suck-up e-mails that reeked of jealousy and bizarre obsession. The next week, Malkin’s syndicated column was comprised of a made-up story she suddenly “remembered” about how she had been propositioned by a Congressman (whom she refused to name because the dude didn’t exist) to live with him during the summer and that the Congressman’s wife then called her. The story was absurd and obviously completely fabricated. Uh, how’d they get your number, Michelle? Malkin claimed the Congressman got her number from her college, which she claimed gave it out, trying to find her housing. Her story was so fraudulent and obviously phony, it didn’t add up to anyone with a functioning brain. Everyone with a modicum of common sense knew she MADE. IT. UP. And it was neither the first nor the last time that she’d do that. But it worked. The fraudulent column coupled with her “I Am a Woman of Color” act got her a meeting at FOX News, where her husband negotiated her deal. And she went on Bryan Lamb’s C-SPAN interview show, where she refused to name the fictional Congressman who allegedly found her name and dorm phone number at random on a list sent out by her college and, sight unseen, wanted her to live with him for the summer (after which his make-believe wife also found the number and called her, too). If you believe that story, I have some land in the Sahara Desert to sell you.


One of these days, I’ll do a global piece on Malkin’s consistently fraudulent and disgusting behavior, such as her repeated mocking and belittling of my concern over Muslim Holocaust-denial and death, rape, and torture threats I’ve received. In a bitterly jealous rant about me on her website, she belittled me for responding to Muslim anti-Semitic death threats on my parents, my Holocaust survivor grandparents, and myself (threats which were praised by her loser conservative blogger crony friends). Yet, she repeately goes on Sean Vannity’s shows to whine endlessly about how “as a Woman of Color [a phrase used by lefties and fake conservatives who really are lefties],” she’s more of a victim of attacks then others. “Sean, as a woman of color I’m attacked more viciously than anyone, and by the way, go to my new self-masturbation website, Twitchy.com!” I kid you not–minus the self-masturbation truth, Fraudkin actually repeatedly said that on the air. Shameless. A huckster is a huckster is a huckster, only this time it’s poisoned with her professional victimhood.

And by the way, betraying her phony anti-jihad columns and statements, on her Twitchy site Fraudkin and the two aging cows who run it for her attacked me as a “troll” for exposing Muslim boy band member Zayn Malik for proselytizing Islam to young girls on my own site. They clearly don’t know what a troll is and couldn’t handle that I was the cause of the second highest worldwide trending term on Twitter that day and was getting a lot of attention. So, they defended and whitewashed the thousands of non-stop vile Muslim death and rape threats I received from Muslim fans of his, fraudulently posting the very few non-violent tweets I got from Muslims out of thousands of obscene, violent comments and threats. But, hey, I’m not “a Woman of Color,” so Jew-hating is A-OK.

I guess that explains why Malkin–despite months of pretending she’s against “swatting”–participated in a phony grievance filed against me with the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission, designed to silence me. The grievance was filed by a woman who has been stalking me online for years and who praised Muslim Holocaust-denial, death, rape, and torture threats on my life as “very valid points.” The woman called me a “special needs kid” because I reported it to the FBI. After I wrote about this, the woman filed a quickly-dismissed grievance against me (the stated goal of which was to silence me), in which Malkin apparently cooperated. Of course, not long before that, the woman arranged for Malkin to get paid $20,000 to give a speech to the group where the woman worked. Michelle Malkin’s slogan isn’t just, “No dolla, no holla.” It’s also, “you give me dolla, I holla.”

When I do my global piece on Malkin, I’ll note her shrieking attacks on two former employees for AIPAC whom she called spies for Israel, joining the anti-Semitic amen crowd in challenging the loyalty of Jewish Americans (except the loyalty of the wimpy Jew for whom she serves as sperm receptacle and bacon-earner). Fraudkin compared the AIPAC employees to Jonathan Pollard, Sander Berger and John Deutch–all three of whom are Jews. So what are you trying to say about Jews in the American government and the Washington lobby industry, Michelle? David Duke is at least more honest. Malkin wrote at least ELEVEN attacks on AIPAC, doubting the loyalty of Americans who support Israel and American Jewish Congresswoman Jane Harman. She got upset that nobody believed two Jewish AIPAC staffers were spies and attacked conservatives who “pooh-poohed” the story, calling it “the National Security Scandal No One’s Talking About.” The charges against the two men were dropped, after the whole prosecution was exposed as an anti-Semitic farce perpetrated by anti-Israel FBI agents who wanted to provide succor for Muslims after all the FBI investigations into Islamic terrorists. But Malkin just doesn’t have the intellect to recognize this. She also never noted the dropping of the charges on her site, nor did she issue an apology to the men.

I’ll also note Malkin’s deliberate lying to cover up Sean Hannity’s Freedom Concert fraud scam, because–after she was booted from O’Reilly Factor–Hannity is the only prime time host at FOX News that will still give Malkin time to pimp herself and her ripped off “work.” She took this as an opportunity to write about all of her insecurities about me, which she genuinely feels–that I’m smarter than her, that she feels I have no right to complain about anti-Semitism (which she believes doesn’t exist), and so on. The woman has issues. And Malkin repeated–without verifying because she can’t, it’s a lie–Sean Hannity’s claim that he paid for his private planes and entourage out of his own pocket and not with Freedom Concert funds. Hannity has refused to provide receipts, canceled checks, or any other documentation, nor will he open the books on the $200,000-plus the concerts pay for his and his bloated entourage’s luxe travel, when he said the money was going to wounded troops and fallen troops’ kids. The scamming charity, Freedom Alliance, featured Malkin as a speaker (probably for more cash).

As I’ve noted previously on this site, Malkin took money funneled to her through Americans for Prosperity, from Matty Moroun, a financier of the New Black Panther Party and the owner of Detroit’s Ambassador Bridge to Canada, where he has restricted Customs and Border Protection inspectors from doing their jobs and had pushed through cars carrying Islamic illegal aliens and illegal contraband. Yup, when she rails against this stuff, she’s simultaneously taking their cash. How do you spell hypocrite? M-I-C-H-E-L-L-E-M-A-L-K-I-N.

When I write my global piece on anchor baby Malkin, I’ll also note her dishonesty about the horrid Mark Cuban-produced “Redacted” movie (read my review), which I had not seen at that point. I first reported on the movie’s anti-American, anti-US-military-slant on this site. Mark Cuban contacted me and posted comments on my site. He also decided to host an event for conservatives to screen the movie and asked me to host it. When I asked him to pay for my travel (I asked for coach airfare and hotel) and said I’d need to see the movie first (to see how bad it was), he declined and asked Michelle Malkin to host it. That night, she went on O’Reilly Factor, and–without disclosing Mark Cuban’s invitation–suddenly told O’Reilly that we should give the movie a chance. (The movie shows American soldiers raping and killing Iraqi Muslim women.) Her self-promotion site, “Hot Air,” (which she later sold for $2 million after it failed to get her a FOX News show of her own) posted video of her statements. When I posted a comment there about her not being forthcoming about Mark Cuban’s invitation, she lied about it. But I have Mark’s e-mail telling me he invited her (and he’s an honest person). And you can bet she opened it and read it. She’s just not ethical.

And last, but not least, there’s Malkin’s insane jealousy for Ann Coulter’s success to the point that she started a petition against Coulter because Ann used the f-word (the one that rhymes with maggot) in a failed joke at the Conservative Political Action Conference, a place for geeks and nerds and people way too obsessed with politics. Malkin confronted Hannity on video and repeatedly tried to get him to denounce Coulter. Classy. She whined that her children were at CPAC. Um, what she couldn’t spring for a babysitter. Quite ghetto.

Of course, ever the plagiarist and rip-off artist (Malkin even ripped off my nicknames for people, such as “Jihad Cindy” for former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney), Malkin takes ownership of others’ work, as she did with many of my stories over the years–on former ICE chief Julie L. Myers, Dearbornistan (a name I coined), etc. She was a fake it ’til you make it, affirmative action chick every step of the way (and, despite pretending she’s against affirmative action, she checked the “Asian” box on every application, too–just ask her for her Oberlin college application). And now she gets away with shoplifting at every turn. She’s a petty thief, too petty to give credit to those who actually break the stories of which she assumes ownership.

And there’s so much more. The bottom line is that you just cannot trust a thing she says. She lies through her teeth, steals like John Dillinger, and never does her homework.

Hey, why should she? She’ll let the little people do all the work, then claim it as her own. Her attitude is like Barack Obama’s: “You didn’t write this. . . . But I’ll pretend I did.”

Credible journalists do their own work. There’s not much difference between her and Richard Silverstein.

When it comes to quoting people who have no credibility, media outlets that run with what they say themselves have no credibility.

You cannot believe anything they air or publish. Michelle Fraudkin is just the tip of a very vast iceberg of corruption, deceit and dishonesty on both the Left and the Right in the news world.

Debbie, you might want to write about that in general. I’m not sure apart from you and a handful of others in the journalism business, that any one else is an ethical journalist. Every one seems to have an agenda.

And that agenda is neither presented as a public service or a quest for the truth.

Debbie, thanks for your expose here tonight and as usual – excellent work!

Malkin asked DS to come to her house? Maybe she’s the one who’s been posting on this site as “A1.”

    You never know Statusmonkey, you could be right or wrong whether or not our pal “A1″ is Ms. Malkin or not? Only Debbie herself can prove whether A1 is Michelle Malkin or another person, afterall, DS is the moderator of this blog of hers.

    Sean R. on August 17, 2012 at 2:06 pm

I had the “pleasure” of meeting Michelle Fraudkin in Colorado Springs during the Waldo Canyon fire. My wife and I were eating at the Rudy’s BBQ joint there in CS and sat right next to her and her husband and started up some small talk. I pretended like I didn’t know who she was but I am very familiar with her “work” so I just let here and her husband go on about themselves. They were talking about having to evacuate their home. Wwhen she told me where they lived, I knew she was a liar about having to evacuate. Her home was nowhere near the mandatory evacuation zone. I know because her home was in a neighborhood that I was meeting a real estate agent in to look at a home as soon as my wife and finished eating our BBQ! Since she had no kids with her, I wonder if she left them behind while eating during her “evacuation”? The next day out of curiosity, I went on her website and had a chuckle as all she was blogging about was how scared her family was during the fire an how she had to leave the house in such a hurry that she left her birds there to fend for themselves or some such nonsense. What a piece of work. And her husband definitely does not wear the pants in that family, if you know what I mean. The way she was talking to him during lunch, I can see now how she wields the power in that family. Can’t wait to read more of your encounters with her DS!

JDftRoT: As I’ve written many times on this site, Michelle Malkin is the alpha shemale and the “guy,” Jesse, is the wife. He’s the most whipped “guy” on the planet and gave up his whole career for her–he was a Rhodes Scholar. She is the breadwinner, and he has no balls. DS

James D. from the Republic of Texas on August 17, 2012 at 1:52 am

    Colorado Springs is predominately Republican and the second largest city in Colorado. Good find about Malkin and I can bet she does no original research. She ripped off Debbie, its very like she ripped off others as well. Plagiarism is not a habit that suddenly appears in middle age. Odds are good she’s been doing a long time and this is not the first time she has been caught at it.

    NormanF on August 17, 2012 at 2:49 am

    It should also be remembered that despite her pretense of knowledge, she simply has a B.A. from Oberlin College. As Debbie noted, her husband cut short his Rhodes Scholarship and a lucrative career so his much inferior wife could more readily ditch her kids for the sake of activism. My answer to that is that if you want to be a full-time activist of any sort, you should not have young children at that point. Attending one more public policy seminars or Republican conventions is not worth missing your child’s birthday, or their first day of school. You are replaceable at such events, but you cannot be replaced at your own child’s special moments. Once they are gone, they are gone. You cannot make it up to a son or daughter after they become older children or teens. These children and teens may not say it to your face, but they know what you cared about the most at the time they really needed you. The only place where a woman or man is not dispensable is in the lives of their own children. Michelle Malkin is really no different from the women she purports to oppose, aside from the conservative rhetoric.

    Worry01 on August 17, 2012 at 5:11 am

Yet, she still got the story wrong, which is the hallmark of plagiarists. They steal the details but aren’t familiar with the story and get it wrong.

Remember Samuel Johnson, John Ash and “curmudgeon?”

Miranda Rose Smith on August 17, 2012 at 1:52 am

But if they, in the process of copying, get it wrong, is it still plagiarizing? ;) Can’t the wrong work be treated as their ‘original’?

Infidel on August 17, 2012 at 2:12 am

    How very likely it is that two people working on the same story express their thoughts in exactly the same way?

    Not very likely and if its a word for word paraphrase, with minor changes in wording, its a sure sign of plagiarism. That’s the hallmark of the ethically challenged and intellectually lazy person. If you can’t put a thought in your own words, shut up!

    You have no right to steal the hard work of others and if you’re quoting from their work to support or develop an original idea you do have, you have to give them proper credit.

    People who have copyrighted works like Debbie, don’t need to grant any one permission to use their work, but its generally granted as long as proper attribution is acknowledged, in the interest of diffusing knowledge.

    Some people won’t pay proper respect and they are intellectual and moral frauds. They don’t really contribute anything original to the intellectual culture. Unfortunately we have on the Left and the Right intellectual thieves and their lack of integrity reflects on the reputation that they have – nothing.

    A decent and enlightened society should have zero tolerance for them.

        I do think that this leaves a door open on who or what Michelle Malkin is:

        “I didn’t know the woman, didn’t ask to hear from her, and yet she was repeatedly sending me e-mails inviting me to stay at her Germantown, Maryland home where she then lived. Um, no thanks.”

        This sounds creepy. I would wonder if the woman was bi if I were a gal who had received this, if there had been no significant prior acquaintance. I would consider this stalking.

        Worry01 on August 17, 2012 at 4:51 am

Great job ripping Malkin a new a$$hole, Debbie. She’s a boring, scumbag, talentless cretin.

DS_ROCKS! on August 17, 2012 at 3:07 am

This comment refers to both the article on Michelle Malkin’s plagiarism and the previous article on Elvis Presley’s Jewish heritage. Debbie’s dissection of Malkin reminds me of one of Elvis’ greatest hits from his early days. It was written by two other Jews, who went on to write many more hits for Elvis (as well as for countless other artists). Here it is:

Hound Dog
Songwriters: Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller

You ain’t nothin but a hound dog
Cryin all the time.
You ain’t nothin but a hound dog
Cryin all the time.
Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit
And you ain’t no friend of mine.

When they said you was high classed,
Well, that was just a lie.
When they said you was high classed,
Well, that was just a lie.
You ain’t never caught a rabbit
And you ain’t no friend of mine.

And here’s a photo of hitmakers Jerry, Mike, and Elvis:

Ralph Adamo on August 17, 2012 at 3:24 am

    That is a good song, but the original was well before Elvis, and I wish I could remember who sang it. The only group I can think of was “Johnny and Jack, and all the Tennesse Mountain Folk”. I thought their version, or whoever it was, was better than Elvis’. It had to be in the late 40′s or early 50′s.

    Joel-Confederate Son on August 17, 2012 at 11:40 am

      @J-CS, yes Hound Dog was orignally written by Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller for Big Mama Thornton. Both Big Mama’s and Elvis’ versions are effective in their own ways, and the “Hound Dog” referred to in the song can be thought of as either a man or a woman. Here’s a clip of Big Mama singing the song with the legendary Buddy Guy on guitar.

Gary Welsh on August 17, 2012 at 7:43 am

Thanks for the expose on Michelle Malkin.

At first I thought it was just some childish grudge that Michelle Malkin was harboring, and that was why Michelle had refused to give Debbie any credit in the past. Now I realize it something much more creepy and pathological.

Worry01 makes a good point about Michelle only having a B.A. in journalism. Journalism is basically just a trade degree; it doesn’t impart any knowledge about anything. That is why no one smart studies journalism. Good journalists just report what has happened, but Michelle Malkin has the ambition of being a historian and opinion columnist on things she knows nothing about. When she writes a book about Japanese internment camps, it is basically like Suzanne Somers writing a scientific treatise on nutrition.

Plus, I’ve noticed those who want to become journalists while in college usually are the same types who want to go to Hollywood and be famous by any means necessary.

John M. on August 17, 2012 at 9:07 am

What is the yellow arrow pointing to in the picture near the top of your post?

I didn’t know that she married a Rhodes scholar. Never trust a Rhodes scholar. That is a subject worthy of an entire book.

S: The arrow is pointing to Malkin’s keffiyeh–you know, the Islamic terrorist scarf of hate she railed against (in a column that stole liberally from myself and Scamela Geller). She’s a fraud on that issue, too. And, yes, as we all know, Bill Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar, too. But he was smarter than to give up his career in 2004 to become Michelle Malkin’s stay-at-home Mr. Mom. DS

salt1907 on August 17, 2012 at 9:36 am

Writing plagiarized books seems to be common among phony conservatives. Most of the bestselling books by conservative pundits are simplistic rehashes of already known information and ideas, and take about two or three minutes to go through to see that there is nothing original in them.

This type of phony plagiarism discredits conservatism as a whole, and contributes to the image that many non-conservative have that virtually all conservatives are stupid. Granted that their prejudice and the bias of the media play a role in building this stereotype, these halfwits don’t need to reinforce and strengthen that image.

I remember her frenzied condemnation of AIPAC immediately after CBS broke the slander that they were involved in espionage. And while Berger and Deutch had security lapses, there has never been an indication they were involved in espionage. Berger was acting on Clinton’s behalf, and Deutch took a computer home on an unauthorized basis. All of them do things like that, and it was probably at anti-semitic instigation that those two were singled out.

But surveys show that most young people have cheated for several decades, so of course they generally carry these habits out when they become adults.

When Debbie broke the story, Mark Levin gave credit to Debbie, and read her work verbatim on his show.

Worry @ 5:11am. I totally agree with your post…especially about activism and having kids. Can’t do it all and if you’re gonna be a Mum one should be the best one possible.

Outstanding column. Sometimes we don’t wanna believe what DS says or may attribute it to other things BUT the truth shines thru’ and you can’t hide that. She delivers each time, too.

If you’re still doubting DS’ take on Fraudkin this column should kill it. Or you wanna be fooled.

Skunky on August 17, 2012 at 10:52 am

The only thing that I disagree with in this column is Debbie pointing to Malkin choosing “Asian” as her ethnicity as a form of taking advantage of affirmative action. If only! Look it up – colleges actually count it against a student if he /she is Asian and doesn’t have a 2400 on the SAT. Colleges are so overrun by Asians in their math and science departments that the colleges have to manage the number or all you’d see in those departments would be Asians. My husband’s race is Korean (SOUTH Korean parents, but he was born here legally), and we have a 17 yr. old son. We have been told to check off the Caucasian college application box since I am Caucasian, so that he’d have a better chance of getting in with less scrutiny than do most Asians. Just google the reverse discrimination against Asians in admissions. If my son were half anything else, the colleges would be salivating – Eskimo, American Indian, Black, Pacific Islander, you name it. With Liberals, it’s not about being a minority in the population, it’s about being the right kind of minority that fits their victim-status profile. Within colleges, Asians are not a minority, so that’s how the colleges defend controlling their numbers by not allowing too many more in.

Dina K on August 17, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Dina K,

    It is not about college admissions, it is about using the Asian ethnicity for affirmative action in getting a job as a conservative columnist and commentator. She definitely used her ethnicity to get ahead.

    Check out her picture in her shameless column about the Congressman calling her on a dark and stormy night in Ohio to invite her personally to stay at his Capitol Hill apartment. She almost looks African with an afro. She knew her last name Malkin wouldn’t help her get ahead, so she tries to make her skin as dark as possible in the photo (way darker than she actually is) and wanted people to maybe think she was black as well.

    John M. on August 17, 2012 at 11:34 am

      Debbie referenced Oberlin college – not the Wall Street Journal or NBC News. Yes, Asians are not common as reporters, but in colleges, there is reverse discrimination against Asians.

      Dina K on August 17, 2012 at 12:07 pm

        Dina, was this true when Fraudkin applied to Oberlin?

        skzion on August 17, 2012 at 12:42 pm

          YES!

          Dina K on August 17, 2012 at 3:26 pm

      Since filipinas are the whores of the world, expect them to do anything for a buck…

      As Goes... on August 21, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    @DinaK,

    The colleges like American Indians? No problem, just locate a good surgeon and have your son’s cheekbones lifted. Apparently Harvard would be game. That place is a big joke these days. I wish that some brave judge would FORCE them to keep Adam Wheeler (the kid who got caught lying on his application) around until they did something about Elizabeth Warren.

    The “too many whites and asians” excuse coming out of the academic world sounds suspiciously familiar: it’s no different than their (successful) attempt to limit the number of Jews enrolling during the first half of the 20th century. The parallel is almost perfect.

    Try to find even one “elite” university today where white students are represented in the same percentage as their numbers in the general population. You can’t. Asians at least are suffered to be *slightly* overrepresented.

    Statusmonkey on August 17, 2012 at 12:54 pm

this must be the reason i stopped watching oriely and hannity.they never critize ragheads in this country who along with the left are trying to under mine our constitution.thank you for exposing them debbie.i first read about dykes on ice from you then others picked up the story and some credited you some did not.i do not read those who did not credit you with this scandle at ice.having retired from the postal service i am not at all suprised that this kind of crap happens when they premote dykes over more qualified white males.i hope this guy wins in court like i did against the p.o.

BRUCE on August 17, 2012 at 11:31 am

If there is a recent vintage movie character suggestive of Michelle Malkin, it’s “Tracy Flick,” the female high school president candidate for class president played by Reese Witherspoon in Alexander Payne’s black comedy, “Election” (1999). Utterly shameless, dishonest and manipulative, all the while trumpeting her Good Citizenship bonafides, this teen chick was classic toxic. And so is this real-life, grown-up, Asian version, Ms. Malkin. The details of Debbie’s account indicate a sociopath at work.

By the way, Jesse Malkin — what’s up with him? Why do certain men allow themselves to be so utterly dominated by their spouse? Is it some kinky BDSM-domestic goddess fantasy? Holy high heels, Batman, this petite wife, a woman who couldn’t weigh more than 90 lbs., walks all over him. Whether with or without children, there seems to be a bumper crop of such frightened, domesticated men in this country.

Seek on August 17, 2012 at 11:39 am

Great column as always Debbie. I always thought that Michelle Malkin was just jealous of you now I know that it is so much more than that. The same with Ann(cheeleader for Miittens)Romney and Malkin’s treatment of her. There is nothing wrong with being ambitious but when you straight up plagiarize, make stuff up and bitch and moan about people keeping you down you make yourself out to be a whinning phony baloney. Michelle is turning out to be just like that other light in the loafers “conservative” Hannity. It also figures that she would give him cover on the whole Freedom Concert scam. What is that phrase about birds of a feather flock together. It couldn’t be more appropriate than in this case. I’ve said it before that this is a reason I like this site because Debbie not only gives us the real deal on nutballs like Biden but also on disappointing frauds like Malkin.

Ken b on August 17, 2012 at 11:45 am

I liked Malkin’s work on Eric Holder and held her in high esteem until she started lying about Newt Gingrich’s record and totally refusing to acknowledge the terrible issues with Rick Santorum. I so no reason to rescind my title for her: The Columnist of Corruption – http://www.politijim.com/2012/01/is-malkin-columnist-of-corruption.html

PolitiJim (@politiJim) on August 17, 2012 at 12:03 pm

By the way, I’m assuming that someone is sending me a check to compensate me for the emotional damaged caused by watching her Defeatocrats video?

PolitiJim (@politiJim) on August 17, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Thanks for the story Debbie, I will never frequent HotAir.com ever again.

Man Parrish on August 17, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Reading about Sean Hammity and his Freedom Concerts an his “charity” makes me so sad and sick to my stomach, and angry. Nauseating. Is there anyone we can trust anymore? I always knew Hannity was a huckster and an egomaniac but I didn’t think that he would suck up money that should go to our wounded warriors and their children, although several months ago a guest on the show (Bob Beckel) said to Hannity, made a reference to Hannity, riding in private planes, to which Hannity grinned and nervously, sheepishly said, trying to laugh it off, “I don’t take private planes, Bob.” The way he said it with his voice cracking and the look on his face really caught my attention. He was like a deer in the headlights. He was caught! Sickeing.Debbie, why can’t someone, anyone bring this out in the open and file a formal complaint, lawsuit, etc. This needs to be exposed. Hannity needs to be exposed. On a personal note, I’d give anyuthing to see that smug, self-righteous smirk wiped off of his face, and strip him of the flag in which he constantly wraps himself. Mr. Conservative. What a joke. He has RHINOS like John McCain on his program and he fawns all over them.Ugh. And I hate when he says to people on the show “you’re a Great Ameerican!”. Yuck. As if he is an authority on who is and who isn’t a great american. The inference beinmg he is a Great American and knows one when he sees one. (Debbie, you are a great amwerican, in my humble opinion). Bless you Debbie for having the courage, for having the guts, to expose this crap as well as fanatical, anti-Semitic, hate-filled, America-hating, Islamofascism.

Steven Millus on August 17, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Steven I remember that from Hannity’s show also. When Beckel mentioned private planes Hannity sputtered and stuttered like he was Obama off his teleprompter. Talk about caught with your pants down. And speaking of his guests he not only has those detestable toads Beckel and McCain on but Pat Robertson and Brigitte Gabriel as well. I would like to see when he throws that football out into the audience that someone hits him in the head when they throw it back. Now I don’t care who you are but that would be funny.

    KB: There is no “Brigitte Gabriel,” just a con artist named Hanan Qahwaji Tudor who goes by many aliases, and whose entire story is fraudulent. DS

    Ken b on August 17, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Excellent and spot on as usual DS, the problem is why do these cocktail conservatives continue to suck up to Michelle Malkin and her ilk of fraudulant conservatives and dismiss you Debbie as a “nut”, “whacko”, “liar”, etc. To me, these cocktail conservatives are no different than the liberals who they complain, bitch and call out, whereas on issues like this, the cocktail conservatives behave too much like leftists.

And it’s conservatives like Michelle Malkin, Cassy Fiano, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, David Horowitz, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, etc. in which I’ll be a “middle-of-the-road centrist” again, if they keep it up, I will become a centrists and no longer affiliate myself with the political right, and I’m WON’T become a left winger either. And BTW, I’m going to post and forward this article of yours Debbie onto my facebook page so that my conservative friends will see and learn who Michelle Malkin really is and quit shilling for the lady!

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on August 17, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    Its more than plagiarism. Its suppression of the truth.

    Debbie wrote a column for National Review that was true but editor Rich Lowry pulled it because it was “offensive.”

    There just zero principles, integrity and real courage among the poseurs and frauds who dominate the Right today.

    And I’m not surprised at all at Townhall’s refusing to accept another poster’s comment on here that sought to give Debbie credit for her work.

    The Left has no monopoly on the theft and fraud market in this country. It comes in all its forms.

    But you’re lazy enough to steal from someone, at least get the facts right. Insincere non-attribution is the lowest form of insults to high standards.

    Which no one aspires to any more in our public life, it seems.

    NormanF on August 17, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Plagiarism is everywhere. I heard Rush go on a rant one day about cash for clunkers which I had read on a financial blog only 15 minutes before and he offered no attribution.
I contacted the author who in turn contacted Rush’s show and he never received a response that I’m aware of.

Mike in Dallas on August 17, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Jon,

Spot on! A lot of people in the conservative movement are hypocrites and vapid cretins.

Stealing is stealing no matter what form it takes. And intellectual theft is worse than all the others in that while its not a criminal offense, it poorly reflects on the person who seeks to pass off the work of others as their own.

I can pretend I wrote it… no you didn’t and it doesn’t say anything good about your reputation with people. They know you don’t have any core values you live by.

If that’s the case, why on earth should people give conservatives a hearing? Like the old, true and trite saying has it, “what comes around, goes around.”

NormanF on August 17, 2012 at 8:02 pm

I had recently subscribed to her website and have not read any of her articles as I was off-put by the photos daily of her posing in different poses almost every day. This post of DS put that disconcerting feeling I got from her in perspective. I believe from the evidence here she is a loose canon in the conservative camp and will eventually cause some embarrassment to the party she aspires to use as a stepping-stone for her own agendas.

Rochelle on August 17, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Poor James Hayes Jr. If memory serves me correctly, sir, you came OUR OF NOWHERE…working at the bottom floor of the old INS HQ building to being selected as the Field Office Director of the Los Angeles Field Office. Correct? What were your qualifications? How many people had you supervised at that point in your career? 10? 6? Yet, Mr. Torres selected you. The score sheet from that interview panel is widely available. Mr. Torres selected you even though you were ranked the 9th out of 9 candidates. Mr. Torres even ranked your knowledge of DRO as the lowest. Yet, you got the job. I guess that wasn’t a hostile work environment for you was it? What about the 8 DRO candidates that were passed over? Was that a hostile work environment for them? After causing nothing but havoc in that office…showing up at 1000 every morning because you were hung over…you were”’selected” for a detail in HQ by Mr. Torres. I think you racked up a record number of EEO complaints in Los Angeles. Great Job Jim. Getting out of Los Angeles just in the nick of time. You were detailed as the Acting Assistant Director for Enforcement for the old DRO program. While there, you orchestrated the demise of a well-seasoned DRO employee and had her removed shortly before the end of her Senior Executive Service probationary period. This employee, by the way, had been enticed to D.C. by none other than Mr. John Torres. After destroying her career, you set your sights on bigger and better things. At this point, I think, Mr. Torres realized that he had made a mistake but, he had created a monster. Your undeserved, meteoric rise continued. You announced your ascension to the Director of the DRO program sometime in October of 2008. Everyone was thrilled. Within 18 months, you had gone from a no-nothing, do-nothing legacy INS Special Agent to FOD of the Los Angeles Field Office to Director of DRO. Wow. What a genius you were. Your short reign over DRO is still known as the worst period in DRO/ERO history. A complete amateur put in place by his friend…John Torres. Hopefully, many of us will be subpoenaed. According to your lawsuit, less qualified people were brought in to replace you as DRO Director because you are a male. Really? When did that happen? The guy that replaced you, James Chaparro, had more qualifications as a boy scout than you will have in your entire lifetime. Hatred? Yes. We are all the hatred that you and Mr. Torres produced. Your troubles have just begun. James Hayes Jr., are you and Mr. Torres even capable of recalling the names of all of the many people you destroyed.?

I can’t really say that I have much sympathy for Mr. Hayes for the following reasons:

He seems to have had quite a meteoric rise in the agency from his beginnings as a BPA (probably GS5 or 7) in 1995 to a GS-15 only 10 years later. Having only about 2 or 3 years experience as a criminal investigator street agent in INS he subsequently became Special Agent In Charge of Homeland Security Investigations New York.

Apparently, he began filing EEO complaints in May 2011 when he was not selected for the position of Special Agent In Charge Los Angeles and his lawsuit seems stem from that event.

While the allegations of favoritism and sexual harassment might very well be true, I wonder if any of these allegations are contained in his EEO filings.

Even if they are contained in the 2011 EEO complaint, why did it take so long. The reported events of discrimination and sexual harassment took place in 2009, some 3 years ago. If this GS-15 Manager had really been offended by that activity, why did he not take appropriate action at that time to report and curtail the activity.

I might be a little cynical, but in my opinion Mr. Hayes was probably perfectly fine with things as they were until he didn’t get the position he wanted.

This is of course just my opinion, and you know what the old adage says about opinions. I’m just glad that I retired prior to the formation of the HSI/CBP monstrosity.

Inside the Loop on August 17, 2012 at 9:22 pm

A few years ago, Michelle Malkin ,stated her blog will allow new users join in the comment section. I filled out the information, received confirmation to come and be part of the comment section. Michelle ,had story about Chevy Volt. I produced my comment, nothing heavy or deep,very simple comment about Volt was not all it was made out to be and within minutes my comment was gone. I posted another comment and sure enough it was deleted within minutes. I e-mailed Michelle and asked why are my comments being removed and I never heard back her or the site. I was never disrespectful to Michelle and have nothing bad to say about her here today. My only upset is the open enrollment was all bait and switch. Thank you.

Holly on August 17, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Gee, Holly,

    You’re dealing with a filipina for God’s sake!

    She took your information AND SOLD IT FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES…

    It had NOTHING TO DO WITH POSTING ON HER SITE. IT IS DONE ALL THE TIME…

    As Goes... on August 21, 2012 at 5:17 pm

Fascinating. I know you’re really big but I hope you get bigger. You’re killing all the sacred cows. I hate it when conservative TV punditry becomes the career choice of unoriginal know-nothings mouthing bromides we’ve heard countless times before.

Your writing is unique, crisp, original, biting… I can’t blame anyone for trying to copy your style or imitating you. But like you said, dummies can’t apply. I’d try to copy your style too, and do it poorly, but one thing about me is that I’d always give credit to where it came from.

I don’t think people give you enough credit and very often they’re not smart enough to understand where you’re coming from. I admit that sometimes it is a challenge for me, too. Best. M.

moeursalen on August 18, 2012 at 1:10 am

DEBBIE:

WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON MALKIN – YOU GIVE HER ATTENTION, WHICH SHE CRAVES.

I ALWAYS DO A “DOUBLE TAKE” WHEN “CONSERVATIVES” PLAY THE VICTIM.(MALKIN, PALIN, AND OTHERS).

FRANK ZAVISCA on August 18, 2012 at 7:31 am

    Hey, Frank Zavisca (Is that you Faudkin?)

    MOOOOOOOOOOOCHELE should be put out of business.

    Do you have a problem with that?

    As Goes... on August 21, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Debbie, This is a much needed article. Thanks for writing it. Many want to think that most “conservative” talkers, celebs, actors, etc. are basically good, honest people. I knew why you were not a fan of Hannity (and rightly so), but I never knew exactly why you did not like Maulkin. This explains a lot!
I was not looking forward to a hit piece on any alleged or perceived conservative out there. But the Truth is WAY too damned important. The truth is more important than issues.
Character and principles are more important than TV appearances…

PDMac60 on August 18, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Michelle “I am a tool” Malkin is super fake. I met her several years ago and like Debbie recounts, all she does is play games. Very weird games. Debbie called this snake out right on point.

She seems to be quite engaged in the phenomenon known as “journalism whoring.” I hear it it’s the new planking.

Sean Hannity is another tool who deserves to be punched in the face.

AB on August 18, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    AB,

    Bahahahahahahahahah! Punched in the face? Bahahahahahahahahah!

    As Goes... on August 21, 2012 at 5:21 pm

Also, kudos to Debbie breaking this story.

I assure you this was not the first time something like this happened. In the past, this stuff has been covered up worse than Obama’s birth certificate. Hearing about how the male agent was told to put his “**** in the back of her throat” didn’t surprise me one bit. These one trick ponies are in place to make DHS such a malfunctioning organization, that it is not able to perform its duties.

Too bad, looks like Janet “Napolian Complex” Napolitano got a little too comfortable and didn’t cover this one up in time. You got caught this time bitch!

AB on August 18, 2012 at 8:36 pm

I love your website for the latest and most in depth coverage of the Muslim threat in the USA and the world. I would not know 1/2 of what I know about Islam’s tunneling into our country if it was not for you.
I hope you do expose anyone who has used your information and put their name on it. Thanks Debbie for the excellent site and investigative reporting.

JuneyJuneBug on August 19, 2012 at 10:08 am

There is and always has been an part of society that will morph into whatever will bring them money and influence.
I’ll bet my eternal soul that during the Middle Ages, and even today, many people that didn’t believe in Christ pretended to be Christians, because that’s where the political power was.

In Islamic countries I’m just as certain that many, not all, Muslim leaders spout Islamic rhetoric because that’s what the masses want to hear even though they themselves don’t believe a single word of it.

And so it is within the Conservative movement, There is money to be made being conservative, because there is a large conservative audience.
So we are going to get “leaders” that claim to believe what we do, but don’t.

I once heard an interview with Bob Dole.
He was about 20 years old and decided that he wanted to get involved in politics.
So he went down to the local county courthouse to see if there were more Republicans or Democrats registered.
There was more Republicans, so he ran as a Republican.
No deeply held values that lined up with Republican values, just whatever would help his political career.
I stress this is first hand knowledge. I heard the interview myself.

Malkin would be a flaming liberal if she thought the money was better on that side of the fence.
And don’t be surprised if she jumps ship in future.
If she or any of a dozen other “conservative” commentators were offered big deals to host GMA, Meet the Press or some other liberal show they would jump on it in a second even though they were told they had to change their views.

Steve on August 19, 2012 at 11:07 am

C’mon Debbie – Shabbos is over !!! We need more fuel on the fire !!! What other embarrassment can befall ICE and HSI today? Hee Hee !!!

StillShakingMyHead on August 19, 2012 at 5:47 pm

So, tell me – how do you really feel?

Mark D on August 20, 2012 at 11:50 am

I think this fighting over “who has the truest brand of conservatism” is unhealthy and it seems to be hinged on “who has more outlandish views”. Its even worse when these stories are based on half-truth or even worse yet, purely conspiracy theories and opinions.

This isn’t an insult on Debbie, but an insult on the direction this new wave of libertarian conservatism is headed (i know it isn’t libertarianism but its also to the right of traditional conservatism). Mike Savage bashes just about every conservative out there and acts like the US is turning into Cuba. He has 10 million listeners. Sensationalism Sells and while traditional conservatism is being labelled the new liberalism, this “new” conservatism of boasting rights is damaging the right worse than the OWS movement is damaging the left.

I say listen to Mike Savage and pay attention to how often he promotes himself, his ego, his higher intelligence (as if he needs to think for us). Look at how often he insults his viewers. Its not healthy.

What’s being given less attention is the positive libertarianism of John Stossel. He’s not a sensationalist and he doesn’t need to use R rated words to demonize opponents in order to make a point.

james on August 22, 2012 at 5:28 am

First and foremost, I am a Republican through and through. Not a hyphenated Republican as in conservative, liberal, moderate, or tea party. Just a Republican with moral and ethical guides, and most importantly, family and patriotic values.
With that info now registered, I submit the following:
As an intellectual character, I choose my forum. Example: I shy away from ALL news networks. Yes, that includes FOX, which happens to be a favorite playground for armchair generals, know it all economists, and those who serm to know everything. Aaahh, including your playmate, Malkin. I certainly avoid all other major news networks like the plague. When a network helps to influence history and book sales, it sours my tongue.
I have been following you.
Using book and website pitch and sales, mediocre news content, and general political appeasement to retain a “ratings” number is both fraudulent humiliating.My point is this, at the end of every day, the Real and True American should realize these basic and simple facts:
* NO MUSLIM IS OF A PEACEFUL OR EQUAL MIND. PERIOD!!
* OBAMACARE IS ONLY A TRICK OR TREAT FOR THE MANY TUNNEL WORSHIPPING IGNORANTS WHO ATE DESTINED TO BE “SOCIALITES”
* FORIEGN POLICY OF THE UNITED STATES IS NON EXISTENT
* DOMESTIC POLICY IS ALSO NON EXISTENT
* 2009 NOBEL PEACE AWARDED TO OBAMA FOR HAVING DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, MUST BE RESCINDED OR APPEALED

I can go on and on and on.

Debbie, carry on and continue and be sure.

“Tis not the victory we desire, but to be victorious in our fight”

Jackie:

You are an idiot. This other woman stole Debbie’s work, her intellectual property. This is worse than if someone stole your car.

Many other conservatives are simply dupes (dopes?) for the Republican Party. We conservatives are supposed to be better than the knee-jerk (heavy on the jerk) Democrats.

Jonathan E. Grant on August 17, 2012 at 7:30 pm

I think they are afraid of being called racists. And, they suspect if they call Mooooooochele Fraudkin on this, her card will be SEXIST AND RACIST!

Yes, she will get down and dirtier, if that is possible…
