A few, short weeks ago, I reported that President Trump’s Secretary of Transportation halted the transfer of millions of dollars in funding for the California bullet train, our governor’s legacy project.

However, those monies were not the sole source of funding. The main source of ongoing support for the train is the...

The California Senate may have taken “Teacher Appreciation” to a whole, new level.

As Legal Insurrection readers are aware, California is one of the most heavily taxed in the nation. However, at least our teachers are poised to get a huge tax break if a proposed measure becomes law.

Over the course of the last 2 months, the alt-left and their media minions have done nothing but rage against President Donald Trump.

As a result, grass-roots leftists are now channeling their anger into verbally assaulting Trump’s staff and destroying his property. Additionally, they are posting their atrocious behavior on...

The latest proposal from Sacramento, Assembly Constitutional Amendment No. 10, would make the Golden Sate first in the nation to fully allow 17-year-olds to vote in elections.

It is astonishing how much is being revealed about the “Deep State” since Donald Trump was inaugurated less than two months ago.

This week, Wikileaks published almost 9,000 documents from the CIA about the agency’s own malware used to hack into anyone’s electronics make it look like the cyber-attack came from Russia.
