There are several really important Supreme Court decisions to be handed down tomorrow at 10 a.m., Monday at 10 a.m., or next Thursday at 10 a.m. ScotusBlog has a “plain English” summary of the remaining cases, and almost all have huge legal implications (forced union contributions for political purposes, whether FCC indecency standards…

Syrian rebels gaining upper hand?

With so much going on in the domestic political arena, it’s easy for attention to get distracted from the Iranian-Hezollah-Russian attempt to keep Bashar Assad in power. Other than when there is a heavy one-day body count, Syria is not in the U.S. news media radar. This analysis at The Jerusalem Post suggests…

I’m playing catch up on this, because I had to attend to some things this morning (let the conspiracy theories begin!). At the request of Eric Holder and the Justice Department, Obama invoked Executive Privilege to shield documents the House committee investigating Fast and Furious has been seeking for over a year. It’s…

From reader J: I have the privilege of living in Charlottesville, recently named the smartest city in America. Yet most of the bumper stickers we see are like the one in the first attached JPG [to be run at later date], no doubt because of the influence of the confluence of liberals at…

As you know, Elizabeth Warren has been caught in a series of at best misleading and at worst false responses since The Boston Herald first broke the story in late April that Harvard Law promoted her as Native American in the mid-to-late 1990s. First she played dumb and said she didn’t know…

MSNBC in the form of Andrea Mitchell and guest Chris Cillizza of WaPo had a good laugh over video of Mitt Romney saying it’s “amazing” that WaWa markets in Pennsylvania have automated sandwich machines. Ha, Ha, what an out of touch dolt. But that’s not what Romney said. He said it was…

There’s an interesting brouhaha developing in the Brown-Warren race. Vicki Kennedy (widow of Ted) has teamed up with MSNBC and the Warren campaign to organize a debate in late September. Scott Brown accepted the invitation on the conditions that MSNBC not be a sponsor and that Vicki Kennedy withold endorsing in the race. Now…

I mentioned the other day the growing demographic divide in the New York City area Jewish community, which has a rapidly growing Orthodox community and stagnant if not shrinking “secular” community. That demographic shift has political implications as Orthodox Jews are not a core Democratic constituency. It also is sparking something of in…

Via SooperMexican( emphasis in original): Today it’s being widely reported that Romney had a moment were he was amazed at the existence of WAWAs, a convenience/gas store, and the electronic touchtone ordering of sandwiches. They have spun this to make it seem like he’s out of touch – BUT THE VIDEO IS EDITED…

We could get the Supreme Court Obamacare decision as early as Thursday, or almost definitely by next Monday. So it’s fitting that Cathy sent this photo, taken in Sanford, Florida: There were also signs on the car identifying the owner as a pastor. The main sticker says “Lord, deliver us from ObamaCare!

I wanted to fill you in on the next phase of Legal Insurrection. The next four and one-half months will be devoted to defeating Obama, taking back the Senate, holding the House, and hopefully doing all of that in a way which puts in place a Tea Party/conservative counterweight to prevent the Republican establishment from straying…

Class warfare worked didn’t work so well for Democrats in Wisconsin in the Scott Walker recall.  But they’re stiking to what they know. The Democrats are engaging in another campaign, this time dubbing Romney’s bus tour the “Middle Class Under The Bus Tour.” (h/t JeffEmanuel)
