“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.”

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

“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…

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

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

Marissa Alexander Fares Poorly In “Warning Shot” Hearing

Posted by
10/21/2014 at 1:30pm
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…

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…

Convicted tax cheat Stanley Cohen re-pledges allegiance to Hamas

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

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…

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…

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…

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…

I’m combining two video reports. First, Politico’s report that 64% feel things are spinning out of control: More results on specific topics here. This is how Morning Joe reacted (h/t Right Scoop): Also, we reported yesterday on Obama creating a woman problem for Senate Democrats. This may be why. Tina Brown notes that Obama makes…
