As reported by National Journal (via TWS)(emphasis mine): “Every now and again, I meet with someone who’s been very successful on Wall Street, who says, ‘I want to support your campaign because I believe you will save capitalism. I believe in capitalism, and I understand there have to be rules. And they have…

Mitt Romney is under furious attack from the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, and pro-Obama media for pointing out the truth about why culture matters in the economic success of Israel. How would these people have reacted if Romney gave this speech: You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania the Palestinian Territories, and, like a lot of small…

Via The Hill: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has launched a blistering verbal assault against William Magwood, a Democratic member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission nominated by President Obama, c…

We’ve seen the Mayors of Boston and Chicago abuse their power to drive a lawful business out of their jurisdictions by threatening to withhold business permits because the founder and President support the definition of marriage as one man – one woman. When those threats generated an outcry even from many liberals, the same politicians,…

Mitt Romney “outrages” Palestinians by pointing out the obvious

Posted by

The cycle of perpetual outrage and victimhood continues. Mitt Romney pointed out something obvious, that Israel has a record of economic success unmatched by those under Palestinian Authority control, attributing it to cultural and other factors: “As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is…

From reader equitus: I saw this one in Napa County, CA on Thursday, May 31. Note the large faded sticker in the middle: “I [heart] Big Brother” It’s a little shocking anyone would admit this kind of sentiment, even in these parts. Keep up the great work!

The next Insurrection still is on target for an August roll-out.  Most likely mid-month. The current site really is just a holding place, and all the sidebar and navigation bar links are the same as Legal Insurrection.  That will change when the site goes live. Your Legal Insurrection registration for commenting will be good at…

Is anyone getting “spawned” when visiting LI? A reader has complained that links produce multiple “spawned” pages. I’ve never had the problem, and our site is clean of viruses as far as we can determine. Is anyone else having this problem?

Mitt Romney in Israel

Posted by
7/29/2012 at 1:52pm
Let me be as clear as I can be.  Anyone who supports Israel must vote for Romney.  Obama, in complete control of foreign and military policy, will be unrestrained by electoral considerations in a second term, and will impose his vision of a Middle East settlement on the Israelis.  There won’t be…

I can’t say I’m surprised it came to threats from the Mayors of Boston and Chicago, and a Chicago Alderman, to deny Chick-fil-A a business permit because the owners support the traditional definition of marriage as one man – one woman.  Or that two other Mayors, in San Francisco and D.C., have jumped on…

A recent poll indicates she is in trouble. Via The St. Louis Post-Dispatch: No matter who wins the Missouri Republican nomination to the U.S. Senate on Aug. 7, Democrat Claire McCaskill is running from behind. McCaskill, the first-term incumbent Democratic senator, trails all three of her likely Republican challengers, according to a new Post-Dispatch/News…

The Saturday Night Card Game started on August 8, 2009, when I noticed a post by Oliver Willis of Media Matters blogging at his own blog, as follows: Steve Benen tries to understand just why wingnuts are so angry about health care reform. He doesn’t make bad points, but its so much…

My post earlier today, Sarah Palin visits Chick-fil-A, civility and new tone ensue on Twitter, has generated a fair bit of attention. The tweets highlighted in the post were not even the worst of them. As has become typical when Palin is attacked from the left, the attacks quickly become mysogynistic,…
