Leftist rage over citizenship question: Asking Census respondents if they’re Americans is unconscionable, progressives fume

Left-wingers have been throwing an extended temper tantrum across the nation after the Trump administration announced it plans to ask individuals responding to the 2020 U.S. Census if they are American citizens. Racist. Sexist. Xenophobic. That’s what you are if … Continue reading Leftist rage over citizenship question: Asking Census respondents if they’re Americans is unconscionable, progressives fume

Radical Out, Radical In

My article in today’s FrontPage magazine: Radical Out, Radical In By Matthew Vadum President Obama is considering nominating his far-left labor secretary to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, according to media reports. Illegal alien enabler Thomas Perez would not be an improvement over Holder, the scandal-plagued left-wing attorney general who has taken the Department of Justice to new lows of corruption and lawlessness.  Perez, who previously ran the DoJ’s civil rights branch, would likely be a Holder clone or worse. “Perez fits all the qualities that Eric Holder had: A lack of ethics, disrespect for the rule of the law, and placing ideology … Continue reading Radical Out, Radical In

Eric Holder, A Legacy of Race-Based Radicalism

My article from the Sept. 26, 2014 issue of FrontPage magazine: Eric Holder, A Legacy of Race-Based Radicalism By Matthew Vadum Attorney General Eric Holder is at long last relinquishing his cabinet post after nearly six unprecedented, catastrophic years of racial demagoguery and gangsterism. Holder, who announced yesterday that he will leave office when a replacement is selected, will leave behind what is probably the most ugly and toxic legacy of any attorney general ever in the history of the republic. Although he has all the moral authority of disbarred Duke Lacrosse prosecutor Mike Nifong, Holder knows he is immune to … Continue reading Eric Holder, A Legacy of Race-Based Radicalism

Holder Expands Ferguson Witch-Hunt

My article from today’s FrontPage magazine: Holder Expands Ferguson Witch-Hunt By Matthew Vadum Despite the continuing absence of any evidence whatsoever that race was a factor in the police shooting of Michael Brown, the Department of Justice will be conducting a race-baiting witch-hunt aimed at the entire police force in Ferguson, Mo., Attorney General Eric Holder announced yesterday. The new investigation is nothing more than a taxpayer-funded Democratic Party voter registration drive disguised as a civil rights investigation. Such hoaxes are the stock in trade of the radical community organizers who run the Obama White House. Statistics, by the way, … Continue reading Holder Expands Ferguson Witch-Hunt

The Ferguson Fix Is In

My article from today’s FrontPage magazine: The Ferguson Fix Is In By Matthew Vadum As mass hysteria over the fatal shooting of Ferguson, Missouri resident Michael Brown grips the progressive movement, President Obama is sending the most divisive, corrupt race-baiter in his cabinet to the riot-torn St. Louis suburb where the suspect died. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who has single-mindedly focused on converting the Department of Justice into a racial grievance incubator, is scheduled to visit Ferguson, Mo., today in an appearance billed as an attempt to restore calm to a community that has erupted in almost daily violence … Continue reading The Ferguson Fix Is In

Michael Brown: A Criminal and a Thug

My article from today’s FrontPage magazine: Michael Brown: A Criminal and a Thug By Matthew Vadum As the media-sanctioned rioting, bloodshed and looting continue in Ferguson, Missouri, evidence is emerging that police shooting victim Michael Brown wasn’t the upstanding citizen that many on the Left have claimed him to be. All of this is happening as mobs have been attacking cops with Molotov cocktails and destroying community infrastructure. Some blacks in the region are reportedly randomly assaulting non-blacks as collective payback for what happened to Brown. Looting and property destruction are rampant. Scores of people have been arrested. Aircraft were ordered … Continue reading Michael Brown: A Criminal and a Thug

The Arrogance of Eric Holder

My article from today’s FrontPage magazine: The Arrogance of Eric Holder By Matthew Vadum Attorney General Eric Holder argues in a new interview that activism is the proper role of the nation’s chief law enforcement officer — and it is precisely this radical conceit that by itself ought to disqualify him from holding the office. “If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly accept that label,” he told left-wing journalist Juan Williams. “Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job,” Holder pontificated, skating over the long-recognized fact that an attorney … Continue reading The Arrogance of Eric Holder

Celebrating Voter Fraud

My article in today’s FrontPage magazine: Celebrating Voter Fraud By Matthew Vadum Cincinnati-area Democrats made headlines last week when they embraced one of their own, serial vote fraud offender Melowese Richardson, after getting her released early from prison. At a “voting rights” rally, National Action Network (NAN) president Al Sharpton and Bobby Hilton, president of NAN’s Cincinnati chapter, celebrated criminal overachiever Richardson who was sentenced to five years behind bars last July for multiple counts of fraudulently casting ballots.  Richardson had bragged that she voted twice in the 2012 presidential election. She also voted illegally in three elections by using the names … Continue reading Celebrating Voter Fraud

Goodbye, Eric Holder?

My FrontPage magazine article today: Goodbye, Eric Holder? By Matthew Vadum   Embattled Attorney General Eric Holder told the New Yorker magazine he plans to step down from his post later this year, but a Holder spokesman now denies he made any such commitment. It’s just another confusing day in the increasingly chaotic Obama administration, where, as the president’s approval ratings continue to fall, the left hand never quite seems to know what the extreme-left hand is doing. In an interview that appears in the New Yorker’s Feb. 17 issue, Holder told Jeffrey Toobin that he intends to remain in his position “well into” the … Continue reading Goodbye, Eric Holder?

D’Souza’s Indictment and Double Standards

My article from today’s FrontPage Magazine: Dinesh D’Souza with Matthew Vadum, 2007. D’Souza’s Indictment and Double Standards By Matthew Vadum The Obama administration’s indictment of critic Dinesh D’Souza on campaign finance law violations is a reminder that it’s dangerous to be in the opposition when the president is a lawless strongman who knows the media will protect him no matter what. Democratic malefactors remained at large on Friday as D’Souza pleaded not guilty to charges that he directed two individuals to each make $10,000 donations to the campaign of Wendy Long, an unsuccessful Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, on the understanding … Continue reading D’Souza’s Indictment and Double Standards

Obama’s Pre-Election Gift to Illegal Aliens

My article from today’s Front Page Magazine: Obama’s Pre-Election Gift to Illegal Aliens By Matthew Vadum In a move more imperial than presidential, President Obama last week granted what amounts to a kind of de facto citizenship to as many as 1.4 million young illegal aliens. From the Rose Garden of the White House on Friday Obama announced plans to bypass Congress and partially implement the so-called DREAM Act which would have offered a path to U.S. citizenship for youthful illegals who served in the armed forces or attended college. The administration says 800,000 illegal aliens could benefit although Jon … Continue reading Obama’s Pre-Election Gift to Illegal Aliens

Soros Opens the Spigot

My article from today’s Front Page Magazine: Soros Opens the Spigot By Matthew Vadum George Soros is once again putting his money where his mouth is. The Left’s favorite Wall Street billionaire and a cohort of his radical confederates are promising to contribute as much as $100 million to help the Democratic Party win this November so it can lay the groundwork for the destruction of what’s left of American civil society. News of the trust fund tidal wave comes after the Soros-funded Democracy Alliance opted to drown Democrats and President Obama’s re-election campaign in an ocean of cash this … Continue reading Soros Opens the Spigot

Justice Has Never Been High on Eric Holder’s Docket

Although Eric Holder, who cannot conceal his visceral contempt for conservatives, heads the U.S. Department of Justice, doing the right thing isn’t high on his list of priorities. As Barack Obama gears up to use the White House (illegally?) for fundraising purposes, a case in point is the “maxed out” donors scandal. As I explain in my new book, Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers, former ACORN employee Anita MonCrief testified under oath in 2008 that the Obama campaign gave a list of “maxed out” campaign donors to ACORN’s voter mobilization … Continue reading Justice Has Never Been High on Eric Holder’s Docket

Eric Holder thinks conservatives are scum

Nasty, petulant, condescending, and hateful: that about sums up President Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder. A whining Holder just announced that Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his four 9/11 co-conspirators will not be tried in a civilian court in New York City. Instead they will be tried before military commissions. Good. Better late than never. It’s worth noting that Holder thinks conservatives are scum.
