Here are front pages from British newspapers today regarding the machete terror attack by two Islamic terrorists in London.
The FBI said early Wednesday that it was reviewing a fatal shooting incident in Orlando, Florida in which an individual being questioned by law enforcement in connection with the Boston bombings and an unsolved 2011 triple homicide had engaged in a “violent confrontation” with law enforcement personnel.
Just prior to being killed,...
All because the Mayor didn’t get his way on a court case over his plan for ergonomic and posh cabs
Via The NY Post, Mike unleashes a ‘hail’ storm:
Mayor Bloomberg went on a spitting-mad rant against a city cab-fleet boss who won a court victory over Hizzoner’s planned “Taxi of Tomorrow” — vowing to “destroy your f–king industry” when he leaves office, The Post has learned.
A fuming Bloomberg made the threat...
“they were hacking at this poor guy, we thought they were trying to remove organs from him”
It will be easy — and likely correct — to assert that this is another Islamic terrorist attack.
But I think it is more than that.
This is what we see in Syria.
A very up close and personal bloodletting and then triumphal braggadocio.
Former representative Anthony Weiner, who resigned in disgrace in 2011 after lying about sending illicit sexting messages to a number of women, has formally announced his candidacy for Mayor of New York.
Weiner did so by way of a video that was posted in the early hours of the morning.
“Look, I made...
I received an insightful email from reader Karen Sacandy:
Dear Professor Jacobson:
I’m among your many grateful readers, but at this time, the Democrats are like Thomas Crown in the flick, “The Thomas Crown Affair,” who created a distraction over here, while over there, he was stealing a multimillion dollar painting.

This post is dedicated to all the Legal Insurrection readers ready to give up on California!
As Tea Party groups stage successful rallies at Internal Revenue Service offices nationwide, one California organization is staging a frontal assault on this government behemoth.
One of the largest and most active Tea Party groups in the...
First it was James Rosen’s personal email and phone records.
Then it was Rosen’s parents’ phone records.
Shannon Bream just reported on Hannity that court records appear to reflect phone records were obtained for multiple Fox News lines at multiple locations. The records were partially redacted, but the area codes and exchanges...
John Kass predicted that Jay Carney would be the fall guy for Obama.
And that certainly would fit in with the defensive narrative whenever Obama fails at anything — it’s a messaging problem, not the message, and definitely not Obama.
As the administration can’t keep its story straight on just about anything, the...
Lois Lerner, the IRS head of exempt organizations division, will invoke the fifth amendment this week rather than answer questions about the recent IRS scandal, according to a letter sent to Congress by her attorney.
Lerner was scheduled to answer questions from the House Oversight committee this Wednesday.

I did not get to watch the Senate IRS hearings today, but it looks like a little more truth leaked out of IRS head Steven Miller, who admitted the targeting was partisan. Maybe a few more days on the stand, and we get the whole truth.
And that whole truth is that...
The persecution and prosecution of Gibson Guitar stands out as a prime example of government overreach, similar to IRS Tea Party targeting.
This video explains the insanity of the raid and ultimate charges — very technical and disputed interpretations of Indian law as to the importation of wood used in the guitars. This...
