Brookings: Elizabeth Warren student loan proposal “embarrassingly bad” and “a cheap political gimmick”

Posted by
5/20/2013 at 2:49pm
Hoorahs and adulation have been heaped on Elizabeth Warren for proposing to reduce the student loan rate to 0.75%, the rate charged by the Federal Reserve for very short term loans to banks. While the left-blogosphere, progressive movement, and low-information political consumers have been cheering, we repeatedly have exposed that proposal as economic folly and political demagoguery: Elizabeth…

It appears that the battle between Anonymous hackers embroiled in the #OpIsrael campaign and Israeli counter-hackers continues. A video posted at a new website titled “Anon Bastards” claims to have exposed those behind the last round of #OpIsrael attacks. Even though those attacks were largely a failure, the Israelis must figure exposing individual identities…

Of all the groups singled out by the IRS, True the Vote seemed to get extra special treatment, in a bad way: True the Vote founder Catherine Englebrecht doesn’t want to believe the federal government singled her out. But… “These are odd days,” she said. Three years ago, her group asked the IRS for…

Update — the Search Warrant is embedded at the bottom of the post. ——————— You thought it was just AP phone records. This morning’s bombshell is that before there was spying on AP, there was spying on Fox News reporter James Rosen.

Another immigration worker union comes out against Gang of 8 bill

Posted by
5/20/2013 at 8:15am
The Obama administration has turned the immigration laws into a bigger joke than they already were, through administrative decisions not to enforce the laws. Obama unilaterally created rules allowing so-called “Dreamers” to stay under certain conditions, and no surprise, 99.2% of those applying are getting approved.  That policy has been held by a federal…

This is pretty funny. WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—President Obama used his weekly radio address on Saturday to reassure the American people that he has “played no role whatsoever” in the U.S. government over the past four years. “Right now, many of you are angry at the government, and no one is angrier than…

On #Benghazi, question may be “What did Obama do, and when did he do it?”

Posted by

There is a desperate attempt to dismiss Benghazi as a big nothing. Based on what we know already, there is a lot of “there there” showing that there we multiple levels of defalcation before, during and after the killing of our Ambassador. But there are numerous open questions. Where was Obama?  What was he…

As most Legal Insurrection readers are avid news consumers, I bet many wonder why there are so many “low information voters”. Perhaps Google is to blame. Take a look at their top news stories when I checked yesterday: Now, compare this to Bing News and its top stories: IRS scandal – check. International news…
