Legal Insurrection readers will recall that California voters went for Hillary Clinton and legalized pot in a big way during the November 2016 election.

President Trump’s eraser and Twitter feed seem to be more effective that Obama’s pen and phone.

In the last days of his insipid administration, the former president created the Bears Ears National Monument in Utah with a stroke of his pen, claiming thousands of square acres of land for the federal government.

It is difficult to keep track of all the #WINNING that I enjoyed this past week, between the implosion of RussiaGate and the IRS apology to Tea Party groups.
