Is the 2016 GOP field to RINO-y for you? Hillary too full of hogwash and O’Malley too boring? Are you looking for a candidate who graduated from the School of Hard Knocks? Then Waka Flocka Flame might just be the candidate you’re looking for… or not. Juaquin James Malphurs or Waka…

Happy Earth Day, everyone! Hope you’re all enjoying your…composting…and your…carbon offsets? I used aerosol hairspray today, so I’m not even going to pretend I observe this non-holiday. President Obama does, however. Today, he boarded his private jumbo jet and burned down to the Everglades to deliver a blistering take on his…

In 2015 America, government overreach isn’t exactly headline news anymore. From the IRS to the VA to the EPA, it seems like every agency in the country is managing to find new and exciting ways to rob from the middle class to feed the bureaucracy; not only is the “system” growing,…

I learned a lot during my time on the 2014 campaign trail. I learned how to “cut a walk book” for a block walk, and organize a phone bank, and juggle 15 reporters, 25 volunteers, and one candidate with one hand tied behind my back; but most importantly, I learned how…

Living in America, it’s very easy to forget that just a plane ride away, people are persecuted on the basis of their religious beliefs. I say “persecuted” like that covers the atrocities that occur on a daily basis, but it really doesn’t; feminists, gay rights activists, and race hustlers all claim…

David Brock of Media Matters appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program yesterday and attempted to defend Hillary Clinton from claims made in the new book Clinton Cash. Even the reliably liberal Mika Brzezinski wasn’t buying Brock’s hollow defense. Alyssa Canobbio of the Washington Free Beacon: Mika Brzezinski Corrects the Record on David Brock’s Laughable…

When the Vice-President of a two term President seeks to reach the highest office in the land, they usually have a built-in advantage over all other contenders: It’s pretty much a truism in American political history: If the president is not running again and the vice president wants his party’s nomination, it’s his…

Memorial Day for the Fallen Soldiers of Israel and Victims of Terrorism (Yom Ha’zikaron) begins at sunset. It transitions on Wednesday evening to Israel Independence Day (Yom Ha’atzmaut).

Former staffer files ethics complaint against Sen. Tammy Baldwin

We’ve got some real staffer-on-senator, Republican-on-Democrat violence brewing up in Wisconsin—and it (mercifully) has nothing at all to do with the 2016 presidential cycle. Senator Tammy Baldwin’s former Deputy State Director has officially filed an ethics complaint against the Wisconsin democrat, accusing the Senator of firing and demoting staffers in an…

Earlier today, I wrote about the importance of pointing out every time an official spokesperson gets testy with their press pool over fair-yet-tough questions. Marie Harf got herself in hot water yesterday when she hinted to the corps that the questions they were asking were far too complex to cover in…

College campuses are meant to be a place where students engage in new perspectives and critical reasoning. Or so they say. But by labeling conservative points of view as “extremist,” “anti-feminist,” and “racist,” feminists are shutting down the dialogue on their college campuses before it even begins. To the leftist student activists, it…

Perhaps Mrs. Clinton should read the newspapers like the current White House occupant, then she might find her self a bit more informed about the goings on in the country she hopes to rule run. Speaking in Keene, New Hampshire yesterday, Hillary said: “From my perspective, I want to be sure that we…

It seems incomprehensible that in 2015, I would have to write a headline hinting at begrudging support on the part of Democrats for modern day slaves. And yet here I sit, after watching more than a month’s debate over the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, finally able to report that…

Posted by

You’ve seen the maps delineating the largely regional usage of words like “y’all” versus “you guys.” But what about the more subtle differences in English usage? Yale’s Grammatical Diversity Project produced some rather fascinated results. The study “examines syntactic differences among local varieties spoken by considerably smaller numbers of people.” Digging far…

We here at Legal Insurrection have a special love/hate relationship with the C-SPAN soundbite catalog that populates after every State Department press briefing. Yesterday’s meeting with the pool was eventful to say the least. No, not eventful. It. was. awkward: Watch: One reporter asked Harf how the department could curb Iranian…

Megyn Kelly interviewed governor Scott Walker on her show last night and covered a wide variety of topics. The first subject was Hillary Clinton, who Walker suggested is out of touch with the American people. Other topics included Walker’s strategy for winning independent voters in Wisconsin, the GOP’s prospects for 2016 and…
