Study: Democrats Moving Left Faster Than Republicans Moving Right

The meme we’ve been hearing for years is that radical right-wing “hard liners” are hijacking the Republican party and forcing it to the right; however, an interesting new study argues that Democrats are moving more quickly to the left than Republicans are moving to the right.  It also indicates that the…

We have dealt many times with the issue of promoting children to throw rocks at Israeli soldiers. It was one of the reasons there was such an uproar when Bassem Tamimi appeared before third graders in Ithaca, NY, and advocated the children become “freedom fighters for Palestine.” It’s also one of the dramatic…

“Thanks, Hillary!” Ben Carson’s Staff Puts Hard Choices to Work

Has anyone noticed that our candidates are a little…sassier…this time around? Maybe we have Donald Trump to thank for this; perhaps it’s the advent of social media and the unfiltered nature of digital campaigns. Either way, it’s something to be thankful for, if only for its entertainment value. Last week, Hillary Clinton sent…

Two independent reviews of the 2014 shooting of Tamir Rice have concluded that the officers responsible acted appropriately under the circumstances–a conclusion we shared with Legal Insurrection readers four months ago. The Narrative: Back in November 2014 Cleveland police officer Timothy Loehmann (who is white) shot and killed Tamir Rice, a black 12-year-old,…

So why did federal prisons remove all pork from the menu?

We’re not buying the claim that inmates stopped loving bacon.

So why did federal prisons remove all pork from the menu?

Posted by

Did inmates stop liking bacon, or something? Did pork products spike in price so much that the pork-laden government had to cut back. Why in the world would the federal prison system eliminate all pork products? Lisa Rein of the Washington Post reports: Finally, the government has decided to eliminate pork — from the…

California bans lawful concealed carry on campuses – that should work

California bans lawful concealed carry on campuses – that should work

Posted by
10/10/2015 at 9:00pm
There is not a single campus where the failure to ban lawfully-possessed concealed guns caused a mass shooting. In fact, almost all places where mass shootings have taken place are “gun-free zones.” The results are predictable, as I explained in my viral column at USA Today, Time to talk about gun free…

Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam organized an event in Washington, D.C. to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March (which didn’t have anywhere near a million men). Reportedly, “thousands” turned out today. Farrakhan, of course, in an unapologetic and proud anti-White racist and anti-Semite. https://twitter.com/ADL_National/status/651862264425771009 It’s not surprising that Wright joined…

Why do some guns kill and others don’t?

Posted by

In the newest edition of Afterburner, Bill Whittle examines the issue of gun control from a liberal perspective and follows it to its logical end. If it’s guns that kill people, not people, then why do some guns kill while others don’t? Whittle suggests that perhaps the problem has something to do with…

Sometimes anti-Israel media bias is blatant, like the NY Times disgusting attempt to deny that Jewish Temples stood on the Temple Mount. A serious backlash forced the Times to issue a correction — but why did it even attempt to feed into the incitement that denies the Jewish connection to the…

The TSA is terrible. Probably one of the worst organizations we pay for. Even worse is that collectively we’ve decided to tolerate wandering barefoot through nudey scanners and randomized government sanctioned, blue-gloved molestation. Evidently, there exist those who still believe putting mascara in a plastic zip-loc bag makes it less terroristy. Enter College…
