Posted by

While we await the Supreme Court decision regarding federal vs. state subsidies, Republicans can’t decide if they want the subsidies upheld or struck down.  Indeed, some believe that upholding them will be best for Republicans (note, not best for America or Americans).  Sharyl Attkisson reports: It would theoretically be a victory for…

If you were paying attention to American politics in 2008, you couldn’t escape from the viral Obama “hope” poster created by Shepard Fairey. His simple image became a symbol of the junior senator’s presidential campaign and was proudly displayed by Obama supporters on Facebook. Unfortunately for Fairey, his love of Obama was…

Fact: Bill and Hillary Clinton aren’t going to give up information voluntarily. When the media did its job back in April, the Clinton Foundation was forced to refile multiple tax returns after it was discovered that the Foundation failed to disclose donations from foreign governments.

We’ve provided extensive coverage of the BDS movement’s battle against the inclusion of Israeli-made products at food cooperatives. Most recently (and closest to the hearts of the Legal Insurrection team,) the members of the Ithaca-based GreenStar Food Co Op won a very hard-fought battle against BDS activists fighting for a referendum…

Talking Points Memo ran with this headline today: The NY Daily News had the same “story” yesterday: The TPM article itself isn’t necessarily wrong. It’s fairly straightforward. But in order to support the headline, along, drawn out Hill battle was completely omitted. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Wednesday assured Texans that the state…

Posted by

I don’t suppose it will ever end–the mainstream media will continue to cover trials involving deadly force, will continue to blindly label them Stand-Your-Ground cases, and will continue to demonstrate its utter ignorance of what Stand-Your-Ground actually is. The most recent example comes in the form of a Stand-Your-Ground piece written by…

If it seems like we’re writing at least one “so and so formally announces they’re running for president in 2016” post each day, that’s probably not far from accurate.
