On July 19, 2013, Neo-Neocon posted for the first time at Legal Insurrection, Obama’s identification with Trayvon Martin. Over 200 posts later, here we are at her 5th Anniversary.

I’m not sure how we connected, probably as a result of her involvement as a Tea Party blogger at her own website, Neo-Neocon.

Andrew’s his first post here, Getting to Murder 2: Finding George Zimmerman’s “Depraved Mind”, evolved into the best coverage of the Zimmerman...

Not for nothing, there is life after Amazon.

Walmart.com isn’t quite up to Amazon’s website ease of use, depth of user reviews, or breadth of product, but it’s getting a lot better. And the price is the price and the shipping (or free shipping) is what it is. Do a test at...

Today is Cultural Appreciation Day here at Legal Insurrection. While some yammer on about ‘cultural appropriation’ (if such a thing does exist, it’s certainly not bad), we’ve decided to share how we celebrate various cultures.

A few writers and readers have shared your stories. Leslie is all over Culture Appreciation Day and...

This is tough.

The conservative blogging world is a small place, so I have good friends who were recently blindsided by the layoffs at RedState, and many who still have a job. My thoughts are with them all. Neither side of this situation is easy.

In the early days of Legal Insurrection, particularly after Obama’s 2008 victory at least through the 2010 midterms, I often saw the word “eeyore” used to describe those in the conservative blogosphere whose main role in life was to spread gloom.

I also learned about a few types of common blog trolls:

Ever since  YouTube without any warning took down Legal Insurrection’s YouTube account in January 2017, I’ve been well aware of the power liberal-leaning high tech oligopolies have over our ability to communicate with each other. The account was restored after a fairly massive news coverage of the takedown.

We never have used pop-ups, pop-unders, pop-overs, autoplay audio ads, or any of the other type of ads that take over the screen to one degree or another. Particularly infuriating are the pop-up/over ads that have an “X” that makes you think you are getting rid of it, but in fact...

The Stoneman High School JROTC performed heroically during the shooting at their school in Parkland, Florida.  Two JROTC enlistees herded students and teachers into a room and shielded them with kevlar, their quick actions undoubtedly saved not only their own lives but those of others under their protection.
