No one could have seen this coming. No one. I don’t mean that Elizabeth Warren was stretching things a bit when she said that people on Wall Street have told her she’d save capitalism. No, the complete surprise is that Warren has fessed up and admits that the statement, which she insists was…

Romney’s foreign trip is the mainstream media’s coming out party in favor of Obama this electoral season, an obsessive nit-picking the likes of which Obama has not seen since ever. John Hinderaker has it right: The Most Striking Thing About Mitt Romney’s Overseas Trip… …has been the press coverage. It has been hypercritical, to put…

No government shutdown before election

There never was going to be an actual shutdown, the issue was how much drama there would be on or about October 1. The drama held great risk — for both parties.  If played wrong by Republicans, it could have given Obama a last minute boost — and vice versa. Via NY Times: House…

Mourdock, who defeated Dick Lugar in the primary, is part of Operation Counterweight.  Mourdock still is playing catch up on fundraising, after he spent so much in the primaries. Mourdock is a prime target…

CNN is hyping this story, but when you dig into it, there’s no firm evidence, only piecing together assumptions and conjecture. Obama’s family tree connection to first African American slave (emphasis mine): His family tree has been linked to Brad Pitt, Sarah Palin and both Presidents Bush but now President Barack Obama may be…

Milton Friedman v. Obama/Warren/Lakoff

Today would be Milton Friedman’s 100th birthday. I’ve played this video before, but it’s particularly timely in light of the “you didn’t build that” narrative which has become the foundation of the Obama campaign taken from Elizabeth Warren who took it from George Lakoff.

The right to be offended is the foundation of our democracy. And the blogosphere. Thanks to reader Amy, who writes: I’m vacationing in Washington state, but here in the agricultural area of the Yakima valley, people are more conservative than the liberal coast–and it shows. Love your blog! Especially the bumper stickers. Keep up…

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…

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,…

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.
