Those of you concerned about Barack Obama’s future once he leaves the White House in less than two weeks can now rest easy.

Apparently, he has decided to start a second career as a climate scientist!

The soon-to-be-former President of the United States had a policy paper that just published in Science (hat...

Legal Insurrection has often chronicled the unintended consequences of minimum wage hikes across the country, from worker struggles in Seattle, automation replacing service personnel, the closing of a popular eatery in New York, and the loss of jobs at UC Berkeley.

Shortly after Donald Trump won November’s presidential election, Mary Chastain reported that a white motorist in Chicago had his car hijacked while being taunted by a  black mob that mocked and assaulted him, while shouting anti-Trump language.

Those arrested for the hijacking were between 17 and 26 in age. Despite the clear shouting...

Australian-British comedian Tim Minchin once quipped, “It’s the fine balance of caffeine and alcohol that bookends my days.”

Therefore it is not surprising that in California, being the most unbalanced state in this great Union, someone was recently charged with Drinking Under the Influence…with caffeine as the only suspect.

Legal Insurrection fans probably despair of California, given the inanity of our politicians and the desire of some of our citizens to leave the Union.
