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…

Next Up in the Foreign Policy Debate: Torture

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

How will the Administration interpret the United Nations Convention Against Torture?

A memo recently circulated amongst lawyers working for the Obama Administration and in the intelligence community has sparked debate about the future of the United Nations Convention Against Torture as it applies to enhanced interrogation techniques used by Americans overseas. The Administration has a month to decide its stance on the…

Convicted tax cheat Stanley Cohen re-pledges allegiance to Hamas

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

The Zionists must have made him hide all that cash and fail to file income tax returns.

Lawyer Stanley Cohen pleaded guilty last spring to federal charges related to his scheme to conceal income through cash transactions elaborately orchestrated to cover his tracks. He also failed to file income tax returns. See our prior posts: Hamas’ attorney, Stanley Cohen, pleads guilty to tax offenses Would Stanley Cohen really rather spend…

Report: Obama Administration Looks to Sweeten Nuclear Deal for Iran. Again.

Posted by  ▪  October 21, 2014

U.S. Looking to Allow Iran more Centrifuges

Remember when President Barack Obama said that the United States will “always have Israel’s back” when it comes to Israel’s security—especially in regards to Iran’s nuclear program? Or when Secretary of State John Kerry said that with Iran “no deal was better than a bad deal?” They were lying. The administration’s aim is to…

Rick Perry All In on Foreign Policy

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

Rebuilding his national public persona after 2012.

Texas Democrats weren’t happy when Governor Rick Perry headed overseas in spite of the first diagnosed cases of Ebola in the U.S. appearing in Texas. While this might have served as a valuable distraction from Wendy Davis’s falling poll numbers, Perry’s decision to maintain his international schedule is shaping up to put…

Cornell Deer Sterilization Fiasco: “you can’t make this stuff up”

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

My interview on Cam & Co. on NRA News.

This goes to show you that you never can predict which posts will gain traction. My post Cornell gives deer tubal ligations, everything goes wrong, was meant to be a somewhat humorous take on a bizarre sequence of events. Tubal ligations and ovariectamies performed on does were just the half of it. The…

Texas elections, or the Wild West?

We’re less than 6 hours into the first day of early voting in Texas, and we’ve already documented evidence of first (electoral) blood between gubernatorial candidates Greg Abbott and Wendy Davis. Behold: Here’s what’s at stake in this election. Vote today. #MyTexasVotes pic.twitter.com/PQ1bT0sijC— Wendy Davis (@WendyDavisTexas) October 20, 2014 Greg Abbott won’t say whether…

Ebola Holiday Inn

Did Holiday Inn predict Ebola ineptitude… in 2001?

Posted by  ▪  October 20, 2014

Who knew this hotel chain was prophetic?

God bless the internet and all its wonderful treasures. This 2001 commercial from Holiday Inn Express was frighteningly prophetic. Hilarious, but prophetic. The ad shows a completely inept science team dealing with an Ebola sample, but you can feel safe because they stayed at Holiday Inn Express and are therefore, smart. Check…
