State drops prosecution as ex-girlfriend recants her accusation of aggravated assault

Despite all the hate directed at George Zimmerman for having successfully defended his life against a vicious ambush attack by Trayvon Martin, and numerous encounters with law enforcement both before and after that fateful night, he has yet to be convicted of any crime whatever. That trend continues with the dropping of the latest…

John McCain throws Code Pink out of a Senate hearing.

Every once in a while, John McCain does the exact right thing. This was one of those times.

It’s time to get our house in order

By now we’re all aware that the race for 2016 started before the ink was dry on the race for 2014. Even before President Obama delivered his already-partially-failed State of the Union slate of promises, we knew that he was going to attempt to pivot away from his party’s disastrous performance…

Loretta Lynch Testifying Jeff Sessions

Not being Eric Holder is not enough – vote No on Loretta Lynch

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2015

At that critical moment when Lynch could have convinced us that she was The One, she blinked.

It pains me to come to the conclusion that Loretta Lynch should not be confirmed as our next Attorney General. As I wrote before, Lynch was a law school classmate. While we were not “friends,” we were acquaintances. I have only good memories of her, and it does not surprise me that…

It has nothing to do with a movie

Legal Insurrection is not a media “watchdog”-type blog. We understand that the New York Times operates on a bias, and that 90% of what is said on MSNBC is generally garbage that should be ignored. This, however, cannot be ignored. I think that by now we’ve all seen the liberal freakout…

No lessons were learned in November of 2014.

Remember when Harry Reid and other Democrats thought they could retain control of the Senate by demonizing the Koch brothers? In November of 2014 that strategy proved to be a loser—but Democrats learned nothing.

Rejection comes after $1 billion dollar temptation and apologies.

In an ill-omened trip, Secretary of State John Kerry headed to India to pave the way for a climate change deal, missing the important Paris march against terror. I was skeptical that the Indians would warm to any carbon emissions agreement, given the level of poverty in that country and need to…
