There really isn’t much to smile about these days. Looking for something to write about tonight was an exercise in been there, done that: (1) Obama-Kerry anointing Iran regional nuclear hegemon at Israel’s expense, and belittling people who disagree – √ (2) Anti-Israel propaganda machine firing on all cylinders – √ (3) Planned Parenthood sells baby parts for…

Tomorrow, ten Republican candidates will stand on a stage in Cleveland, Ohio for the inaugural debate of the 2016 cycle. Personally, I’m preparing myself for a lot of nonsense in the hours leading up to the main event. So far, our slate of candidates has not held back on lobbing personal…

The British-American historian Robert Conquest died on August 3, 2015, at age 98. That name may not ring a bell to you, but it does to students of Soviet history, of which I was one in college. In the 1960s Conquest documented the extent of Stalin’s terror, which outlets such as The NY…

“I say this not to be provocative, but to state a fact.” That was the theme of President Obama’s speech today at American University, in which he offered a spirited, low-blown defense of the Iran nuke deal. The address, however, was indeed provocative, and more often than not devoid of the very…

The US State Department has problems. Whether we’re talking about major, deadly problems like the Benghazi scandal, or their mere inability to keep it together for a press conference, you can always count on State to show time and again what it means to achieve mediocrity at the highest levels. There’s…

Are you ridin’ with Biden? If you’re reading articles on Legal Insurrection, probably not; but I’d be willing to wager anyone spending as much time as we have analyzing the Republican field isn’t planning on voting for Biden, Hillary Clinton, or any other candidate with a “D” after her name. When…

There John Kerry goes again. Jeffrey Goldberg, the go-to person when the Obama administration wants to get its position out because Goldberg is pro-Israel, landed an interview with John Kerry. The topline storyline is that Kerry is warning the U.S. Congress not to screw (with?) Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: “The ayatollah constantly believed that…

Yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hosted a webcast with American Jewish participants urging them to oppose the Iran nuke deal. His message reached an estimated 10,000 people, and served as a counter to propaganda spread by pro-deal activists plying the media with misinformation about the motive behind Israel’s opposition. From the…

On Monday, Elizabeth Warren took to the senate floor and made a series of bizarre accusations about the awful series of Planned Parenthood videos. Senator Warren apparently believes this is all part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to take away women’s rights. Maybe progressives should find a different politician to clone. MSNBC’s…

PREPARE YOURSELVES, READERS—for debate season is nigh, and Fox News has just released the names of the ten lucky men who will be participating in the first Republican primary debate of the 2016 cycle. My use of the word “men” is justifiable here—Carly Fiorina didn’t make the cut. Here’s the field: Donald Trump Jeb…

Yesterday, we posted about Iran’s latest—and blatant—two-fold attempt to undermine the United States’ moral authority and intimidate Jews living in Israel. The content of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s 400-page screed on the inviability of both western hegemony and the state of Israel wasn’t particularly shocking, but it should serve as yet another…
