Podcast: I Spy Minute – Obamacare’s “Transparency” Hits Home

It’s amazing what passes for “transparency” these days. Nancy Pelosi’s pledge to clean up the swamp and be the most open and transparent government was an epic fail during her regime–especially over Obamacare. We’ll have to pass it so you’ll know what’s in it. Now, it’s hitting much closer to home. Take a listen: I […]

» Saturday Night Card Game (Repeat after me: “The Shirley Sherrod tape was not misleading”) – Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

With Andrew Breitbart’s death this week, one of the most persistent falsehoods has resurfaced, the claim that the original tape released of Shirley Sherrod’s speech to an NAACP Chapter was misleading or defamatory in that it did not reveal that Sherrod’s discrimination against a white farmer was long ago, that she ended up helping him, and that […]
