I’m so old, I remember when Elizabeth Warren was surging in the polls, breaking out of the lower-tier single-digit pack.

In late April, a Quinnipiac poll showed Warren surging to 12 points, a point ahead of Bernie, two points ahead of Mayor Pete, and four points ahead of Kamala Harris.

There appears to be a ceasefire, or at least pause in fighting, in the current Gaza conflict.

Hamas and Iranian-controlled Islamic Jihad launched over 600 rockets killing several Israeli civilians. The rockets were launched mostly from civilian locations in Gaza towards civilian locations in Israel.

The Palestinian rocket barrage on Israeli civilian communities continues unabated today. In all, over 500 rockets have been fired on Israeli cities and towns, causing at least four Israeli civilian deaths.

Homes and the maternity ward of a hospital have been hit, among other civilian locations in Israel. Hamas and Islamic Jihad...

Are we on the verge of another Gaza war?

If so, it will start the same way the last one, in 2014, started — with relentless and massive Palestinian rocket fire into Israeli cities and towns, from locations among civilians in Gaza.

You know the story. Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandman was maligned and became the mainstream media’s object of derision because he has the audacity to stand there with a smile on his face as a Native American activist banged a drum inches from Sandmann’s face.

He stood his ground, and...

Something has changed. Attorney General William Barr has become Public Enemy No. 1 for the Democrats and supportive mainstream media.

It started with Barr’s four-page summary of the Mueller Report’s conclusions, which punctured the almost three year narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. The conclusion of no conspiracy or...

The State government in New York has become part of the #Resistance to Trump, and not just on policy issues.

The law enforcement and legislative functions have been co-opted to target Trump because he is a political enemy. In the war on Trump, important norms are being broken. It’s disgusting...

It’s not like we haven’t been warning about this for the ten-plus years Legal Insurrection has been in existence. We have.

In posts too numerous to link, we have warned that the anti-Israel movement, including anti-Zionist and far left-wing Jews, has been so relentlessly demonizing and dehumanizing Israel that they were...

Elizabeth Warren has been tearing into Joe Biden since Biden announced he’s running for president.

Warren, whose polling and fundraising is underwhelming, clearly is not happy that Biden beat everyone, even Bernie and Beto, in his first 24 hour haul...

The so-called “Great March of Return” are the weekly riots at the Gaza-Israel border in which Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other terrorist groups mount operations to breach the border fence and attack Israelis under cover of civilians, including women and children.

As we have documented extensively, the “children” involved often are

Gibson’s Bakery in Oberlin, Ohio, is in a pitched legal fight with Oberlin College. It’s a classic town-gown fight, the working class locals versus the wealthier and often out-of-state students, faculty and administrators — but added into the mix is Oberlin’s infamous social justice warrior culture.
