The firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates wasn’t the only dramatic personnel change made by President Donald Trump last night.

He also replaced the acting head of Immigration & Customs Enforcement (thanks to Legal Insurrection reader PhillyGuy for the tip).

California lawmakers have dived deeper in the pool of progressivism, apparently to swim away from the red states responsible for the election of Donald Trump as President.

Between bitterly threatening to build our own satellites and clinging to sanctuary city policies, state lawmakers are now weighing a fun, new revision to state...

Mental health scientists will surely add a new term the next time they gather: Trumpophobia, the fear of all things pertaining to America’s new president.

Trumpophobia is not confined to the usual set of social justice warriors, either. Supposedly reasoned and experienced scientists have become unhinged over the past week, as Trump...

Legal Insurrection readers will recall that during its last few hours, the Obama administration sent $221 million to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking.

Team Trump has now frozen those monies.

Over the course of the general election campaign, Hollywood’s celebrities donated money, time, and sometimes questionable talent to elect Hillary Clinton as President.

After Donald Trump’s victory, there were a stream of celebrity videos deriding the electoral college, trying to sway electors from formalizing the Nov. 8th results, patting themselves on the...
