Are Republicans Poised to Save ObamaCare?

Are Republicans Poised to Save ObamaCare?

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…

That’s Legal Insurrection reader Joel E. who lives in a town near Tel Aviv, and reached out to me when he read I was heading for Israel. The featured image is us at a really good falafel place near the beach. I also saw Legal Insurrection favorite and sometimes contributor “Anne in Petah…

More corruption? Hillary Clinton kept Blumenthal on Foundation payroll

More corruption? Hillary Clinton kept Blumenthal on Foundation payroll

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. Still, gathering new information about the…

Big Win for Washington anti-BDS Activists

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…

Is Ted Cruz a hypocrite for requesting federal aid after Texas flooding?

A refresher on that whole Hurricane Sandy federal aid fiasco

Is Ted Cruz a hypocrite for requesting federal aid after Texas flooding?

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…

Media STILL Doesn’t Understand “Stand-Your-Ground”

You can lead a writer to the law, but you can’t make him think.

Media STILL Doesn’t Understand “Stand-Your-Ground”

Posted by
5/28/2015 at 2:50pm
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…

Continuing on my tour in northern Israel, on May 27, 2015, I visited the Bedouin village of Khawaled led by our guide Hassan Khawaled. Most of the people in the village have the village name as a last name, or a variant, such as the first Israeli Bedouin diplomat Ishmael Khaldi, who…

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. Waiting with baited breath for the Republican presidential candidate who can serve up the pro-abortion, anti-gun vote? Wait no more! Your endurance…

Now that former Senator Rick Santorum has dived into the presidential pool, I thought I would check the status of a candidate who is already in — Carly Fiorina. Early in her candidacy, Professor Jacobson noted she was “rocking it” by taking the fight to Hillary Clinton. She continues to show the…

America’s foreign policy in the Middle East is falling apart and health insurance premiums are skyrocketing under Obamacare, but the liberal media feels your pain, America. As usual, it’s all about Obama. Amber Phillips of the Washington Post: President Obama’s legacy is increasingly in legal jeopardy President Obama’s second-term agenda, it seems, is in…

Former Senator Rick Santorum formally launched his presidential bid in Pennsylvania this afternoon. Making his announcement to a sizable crowd of enthusiastic supporters, Santorum made a tall order. “I’ll offer a bold vision for America, the one that’s clear and conservative, that has plans for reform and that has a proven…

Keep in mind our hard earned money goes to pay people to come up with these ideas. According to Roll Call’s Hannah Hess, Chairwoman of the House Administration Committee, Rep. Candice S. Miller, R-Mich., the Capitol could really use a few giant surveillance blimps. In April, intrepid Florida mailman Douglas Hughes successfully…

Rand Paul: Republican Hawks “Created” ISIS

Posted by
5/27/2015 at 4:15pm
I like a lot of what Rand Paul has to say; I’m on board with limited Constitutional government, auditing the Fed, thoughtful deregulation, and major tax reform.  When it comes to foreign policy and America’s place in the world, however, I can’t think of another Republican with whom I disagree more. …

For what may be the first time ever, the United States has expressed a wholehearted and enthusiastic interest in Soccer. …too bad that interest manifested in the form of an investigation, accusations, and mass arrests.

INFOGRAPHIC: the impossibly long Code of Federal Regulations

Posted by
5/27/2015 at 1:15pm
When it comes to federal regulations, I find the “it shouldn’t be this complicated!” argument to be flawed. Of course it’s going to be complicated—the federal government regulates activity concerning 50 states, a military, a rambunctious federal District, and foreign relations. They’ve got a lot going on; hence, the rule making…
