Wendy Davis, Troll Target

Posted by  ▪  October 22, 2014

She’s really on a roll.

If Texas politics is the wild west, then the Wendy Davis campaign is currently on a slow jog through the desert at high noon. Twitter exploded this evening when a member of the College Republicans in Virginia caught the “@WendyDavisTexas” Twitter account (Davis’s personal account) claiming that a picture of several…

Elizabeth Warren: My historically underrepresented group treated differently in Senate

Posted by  ▪  October 22, 2014

Must be Senate Dems doing it, or she’d name names.

Oh, thaaaaaatttttt historically underrepresented group. Not the one you were thinking of. Via CNN: Sen. Elizabeth Warren told CNN she has been treated differently as a woman in the clubby upper chamber — echoing the general sentiments of her colleague Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who wrote about sexism in the Senate in a recent…

Busted: James O’Keefe Catches CO Dems Advocating “Awesome” Voter Fraud

Posted by  ▪  October 22, 2014

“So really, truly, like yeah, that is awesome.”

For Colorado Democrats, voter fraud isn’t just a way of life—it’s an awesome way of life. James O’Keefe has released more raw footage showing employees of three separate Democratic groups in Colorado—Work For Progress, Greenpeace, and the Rep. Joe Salazar campaign—directly condoning James’ suggestions about how to commit voter fraud using…

Michael Brown Autopsy A Further Blow To #Ferguson Racial Narrative

Posted by  ▪  October 22, 2014

Gunpowder stippling found inside injury strongly suggests Brown’s hand was on Wilson’s pistol when it fired.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has obtained and released the official autopsy report of Mike Brown, the black man shot and killed by Police Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, MO this past August.  (The autopsy report is embedded below.) The item in the report that perhaps sheds the greatest light on the circumstances of…

Posted by  ▪  October 22, 2014

Operatic sympathy for the terrorists

Yesterday was the opening of controversial opera “The Death of Klinghoffer” at New York’s Lincoln Center. The occasion was marked by turmoil: Demonstrators, primarily associated with Jewish groups, plan to rally outside Lincoln Center with 100 wheelchairs, in honor of the slain handicapped Leon Klinghoffer, on whom “The Death of Klinghoffer” …

Jeanne Shaheen – Proud Member of the 99 Percent

Posted by  ▪  October 22, 2014

New Hampshire Democrat admits she votes with Obama 99% of the time.

If you missed the debate between Scott Brown and Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire last night, consider yourself lucky. Brown did very well despite the tremendous odds stacked against him. The debate was sponsored in part by the University of New Hampshire and moderated by the not-at-all biased Chuck Todd of NBC…

Supreme Court arguments reenacted with dogs

Posted by  ▪  October 22, 2014

And it’s everything you hoped it would be

HBO’s Last Week Tonight is easily the best satirical news program on TV these days. Hosted by Daily Show alum John Oliver, Last Week Tonight is all over the spectrum ideologically, but regularly has me in stitches. Recently, Last Week Tonight noticed video cameras are not allowed to film SCOTUS oral arguments. Oliver…

Democratic candidates get some “help” from Obama

Posted by  ▪  October 22, 2014

With a friend like this, who needs an enemy?

Ouch, this must hurt: President Obama delivered a blow to Democratic Senate candidates looking to distance themselves from his flagging approval ratings Monday… “The bottom line is though, these are all folks who vote with me; they have supported my agenda in Congress; they are on the right side of minimum wage; they…

Hope springs eternal

Falling Stars

From Ted: Professor, Hope springs eternal in Hurst, TX. This Prius (the jokes write themselves…) displays a trifecta of leftist lunacy. I’m surprised, though, that the driver isn’t supporting Warren in ’16.

Travel Restrictions from Ebola Countries Imposed

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

But no travel ban…yet.

Today DHS imposed a set of travel restrictions that will funnel all travelers coming from countries suffering from Ebola outbreaks through 5 major airports in the U.S. Although these restrictions will not close off ports of entry to these travelers, they will force all travelers coming from those West African countries…

“Who’s really obsessed with race?” Prager U Video Takes Liberals to Task

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

“The conservative position is that blacks have repeatedly proven they can compete with anyone without the demeaning benefits of lower standards.”

“Hardly a day goes by that someone of prominence—a politician, a talk show host, an entertainer—doesn’t call a conservative, or conservatives generally, a racist.” Maybe it’s just because we’re in the middle of an election cycle, but it seems like the liberals out there are getting more and more brazen in their…

ACLU not happy with Houston Mayor Annise Parker

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

Even liberals think she went to far in subpoenaing sermons from local pastors.

Houston Mayor Annise Parker made national headlines last week when it was revealed she subpoenaed the sermons of local pastors. Following a brutal battle over a city ordinance which many believed was an egregious encroachment of local government into the territory of religious freedom, Parker, Houston’s first openly gay mayor, subpoenaed the…

American Studies Association walks back anti-Israel boycott (but damage is done)

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

The fields of American Studies and the Humanties are as much victims of ASA’s political activism as are Israeli universities and scholars.

Ever since I started covering the anti-Israel academic boycott of the American Studies Association in December 2013, I have interacted with some of its members who are reasonable people concerned about the direction the ASA has taken.  But those voices have been drowned out by a shrill and vocal minority.A little publicized…

Marissa Alexander Fares Poorly In “Warning Shot” Hearing

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

Judge seems inclined to deny evidence of Gray’s alleged prior acts of abuse.

The Marissa Alexander defense team had a terrible, awful, very bad day yesterday in a pre-trial evidentiary hearing.  Much evidence that would have been favorable to their case was excluded by the trial judge, and the remaining evidence left undecided also seems unlikely to be admitted. The hearing was live-tweeted and…

MoveOn: If Republicans take Senate, they might do to us what we did to them

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

Where have we seen “reconciliation” used to pass laws before?

The leftist outfit known as MoveOn.org has created a new ad for the 2014 election. The video warns that if Republicans win the senate this fall, they might use an underhanded procedure known as ‘reconciliation’ to pass legislation. Legal Insurrection readers will no doubt recall that reconciliation was the very process Democrats…
