Leslie Eastman – 10th Anniversary at Legal Insurrection

Leslie Eastman – 10th Anniversary at Legal Insurrection

Leslie lights up our lives at Legal Insurrection. She gives us hope to carry on.

Leslie Eastman is a woman of passion, mystery, history, and science. Particularly SCIENCE!

Today we are celebrating Leslie’s 10th Anniversary at Legal Insurrection, joining a rarified and exclusive author club previously reached only by Mike LaChance, but soon to be joined by others.

You can read a lot of background on Leslie and how she joined Legal Insurrection at her 5th Anniversary post. Leslie has over 3,000 posts at Legal Insurrection and before that College Insurrection.

Leslie is fearless in her love of family and country.

She was one of the first movers in the Tea Party tax revolt movement, as this April 11, 2009, video of her reflects. (My goodness, she hasn’t aged a day, it’s like time stood still for her. I’ll have what she’s having.)

I finally got to meet Leslie when I spoke in Los Angeles in June 2014:

Leslie is our resident go-to person for anything related to science. Leslie’s reporting on COVID, the Wuhan Lab, “climate change” (fka “Global Warming”) and other science topics has been accurate, free from politics, and prescient. Leslie had the courage to report on the lab leak theories (citing sources such as Chinese university researchers) and masking (citing mostly European scientific studies), and the climate (again citing reputable sources), contrary to the popular manias. The repression of alternative scientific reporting and findings is one of the worst and most dangerous features of the past few years, but Leslie has been fearless in pushing forward for the truth. We proudly stand by and with her, and are honored to have her among us.

Oh, and monkeypox. She’s all over monkeypox, but fortunately, it’s not all over her.

Leslie also lights up our California events, such as this one in Los Angeles on February 9, 2020, about a month before the country started shutting down. We didn’t know what was coming.

Leslie is equally fearless about her family, and she has set such a wonderful example raising her son. Leslie always wanted her son to reach for the stars.

And now he is, at the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he recently made his commitment to stay in the military after graduation and is joining the Space Force. Thank you for your service, Blake.

Leslie is doing her own “prepping.” Leslie recently has learned archery, which could come in handy when society collapses, and she has to hunt for food and defend her castle.

And if all else fails, like a Medieval Knight, she’ll throw axes.

And she does it all with a smile on her face. Her nickname at Legal Insurrection hereafter shall be “Rambo, First Smile.”

Leslie lights up our lives at Legal Insurrection. She gives us hope to carry on.

Thank you for 10 years Leslie.

She certainly does and now I fully understand how and why. Way to go Leslie!

Happy Tenth Anniversay, Leslie. Thank you for lighting up my life.

Congratulations on 10 years of lighting our lives! May there be many more.

I believe this is my 10th anniversary as a reader.
Not as impressive.

Leslie is a great part of LI. Enjoy another tall cold glass!

Thank you, Leslie. Above all, for your unwavering commitment. Ten years!

Hoping you’ll chime in with your favorite / most personally rewarding and impactful posts of these last 10 years.

Congratulations, Leslie, and thank you for all the great posts!

Nice analog wristwatch, stylish chapeau, classic flower print dress. But tell us exactly what you’re drinking ! Beer fans need to know!

Man, if I had known you were an archer, I would have been more careful what I say around here. Happy 10th!

Congratulations, Leslie!

Keep up the good work; always enjoy reading your posts!

A big congratulations to Leslie! Always enjoy her witty and insightful posts.

Thank you for your fine work, Leslie!! LI would be diminished without you.

We love you, Leslie! You’re such a bright soul in a darkening world. So grateful for you, for the work you do, and to know you. Happy blogaversary! ❤️

Happy LI Anniversary, Leslie! Thank you for your service to our country!
And thank you, Professor Jacobson, for this article about a very impressive lady!

Congratulations on the big One – OH!

I strongly second the Professor’s appreciation of your science writing. Clean, objective description of scientific problems is in woefully short short supply right now. It’s nice to to feel totally alone in a sea of political prejudice — from both sides.

Congratulations, Leslie! You are a rock star–a fun, funny, super-intelligent, and good-hearted,–beautiful soul rock star. I love working with you and look forward to (at least) another ten years of LI goodness. <3

Wonderful. Thanks, Leslie.

Keep up the excellent work !

Thanks for all the great writing, Leslie! We all admire what you do.

You are a great hit with all the guys at the bait shop.

Congratulations on your ten years at LI.
