Things Fall Apart – My Favorite Posts of 2022

Things Fall Apart – My Favorite Posts of 2022

It can’t continue on this trajectory. Something has to give. Be prepared.

For most of the past several years, I have compiled a list of the 10 Most Viewed posts at Legal Insurrection based on page view stats:

In 2017, I instead did my favorite posts, because there were no real standout posts, In 2017 we had fun, fun, fun, and in 2021, because coverage of two trials (Rittenhouse and Chauvin) so dominated the rankings, Save The Country – My Top Ten Posts Of 2021.

So this year, I’m again doing my favorites because coverage of the Gibson’s Bakery appeal conclusion and payment so dominated the Top 10 most viewed. So here are my favorites of 2022, organized around a theme: Things Fall Apart.


William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

I’ve grouped posts by topic, rather than a straight listicle.

Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College

Clearly the biggest blog event of the year. Six years in the making. We started coverage from when the protests happened over the shoplifting, through trial and appeals. And finally the Gibsons were paid, a story we were the first to report.

The Crew

Mike, Leslie, and Fuzzy celebrated 10-year anniversaries at Legal Insurrection. It seems like just yesterday those young kids joined us. And we reached a milestone with our 1 millionth reader comment.

In Memory Of

Those we lost along the way this year.

Big. Breaking. News.

Two blockbusters, Abortion and Mar-a-Lago.

Liars and Cheats

They lie. They lie about lying. They lie about lying about lying.

Real Anti-Racism

Perhaps the best (and worst) example of how control of language is dominated by the left. Ibram Kendi’s so-called “anti-racism” ideology that dominated campuses and increasingly corporations and government, calls for racial discrimination.

Things Fall Apart

It can’t continue on this trajectory. Something has to give. Be prepared.

First resolution to act on: Restock bottled water and replace the filters for the kitchen and fridge. Restock canned goods, lots of them. Buy another manual can opener.

My favorite stories always have a teaser to entice the readers such as a bikini-clad babe picture even though the story has nothing to do with bikini babes. Of course, those “news” stories are found in media away from Legal Insurrection.

The check that Oberlin had to write to Gibson’s had to be one of the most gratifying I have ever seen. And it wasn’t even made out to me.

Agreed. Hope there are many more Oberlin like victories in the coming New Year

Report: AMD, Intel, Nvidia, and others are slashing their TSMC orders, which could reduce the contract manufacturer’s Q1 2023 sales by an estimated 15% QoQ

.. tell me again about the “Chip Shortage”

The Gibson win was probably the high light of the year.

Well that and I discovered the Critical Drinker which has made the wasteland of woke entertainment bearable.
