Move-On-Reconciliation-620x429

The leftist outfit known as MoveOn.org has created a new ad for the 2014 election.

The video warns that if Republicans win the senate this fall, they might use an underhanded procedure known as ‘reconciliation’ to pass legislation. Legal Insurrection readers will no doubt recall that reconciliation was the very process Democrats...

Charles Krauthammer on Putin and Obama

Yesterday’s announcement that the Obama administration was appointing partisan bureaucrat Ron Klain as Ebola Czar was met with partisan reactions. Liberals think it’s a great idea while conservatives are skeptical.

Perhaps no one put the situation in perspective better than Charles Krauthammer who, by being a psychiatrist is also a medical doctor...
