  1. I greatly enjoy your website and the many articles you write. They are clear and easy to follow. Thank you.

    1. Same tired complaining from Anonymous. Professor, you should not allow anonymity on this blog. Take responsibility for what you say.

  2. Congratulations, I remember when you hit the 1m milestone and Thank you, for giving us a fair and impartial take on the most important topics…
    PS I like the typos, reminds us we are all flawed, unlike those who want us to believe they are not and always know what is best for Us…

  3. I wish you used better blogging and commenting software. The notify boxes never work for me. And rich formatted commenting would be helpful.

  4. Dear Professor Turley, thank you for causing us to be aware of the attacks on our God given freedoms. Many of your postings do a great deal to defend our constitutional rights. Your blog gains more importance when we know that we will hear nothing of your findings by the mainstream media. Publishing the traffic to your blog helps us to understand that we do not stand alone. Though we can certainly be depressed by the deceitfulness of the world we can take solace in knowing that there are people of good character who find your much needed exposure of the deceit encouraging. Your efforts can be summed up by a famous quote. “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery”. Thank you for your steadfast courage in an age of cancellations.

  5. Thank you Professor Turley.

    The American Founders stipulated that the rights, freedoms, privileges and immunities provided by the Constitution were natural and God-given.

    God and nature are universal.

    Every person in the universe and every person on planet earth enjoys the freedom of speech, without qualification.

    Freedom of speech includes speech that is “deplorable.”

    Some governments on this planet suppress freedom; those governments are adverse, debased and just plain wrong.

  6. Congratulations. We would like to see a legal treatise on whether Presidnet Biden’s refusal to enforce the Immigration Law and aiding and abetting illegal aliens to travel in our country without legal authority constitutes high crimes and misdemeanors in pursuit of impeachment.

  7. As a long ago grad from GW Law (56) I am pleased to have joined as a reader of your blog. Keep up the good work. Go Colonials.

  8. Congratulations to you and your group. An extremely valuable asset providing timely insightful analysis.

  9. Jonathan,
    Don’t hurt yourself reaching your arm around your back to pat yourself on the back.

    You are still posting these kinds of statistics every 1,000,000 in growth, why?

    These kind of statistical posts regarding the blog growth serve absolutely no purpose for anyof your re4aders with the exception of you and possible advertising investors. I suggested to you before that after you passes the 50,000,000 mark that you should only post updates every 10,000,000 instead of every 1,000,000 and stop wasting our time with these pointless statistics so often.

    1. stop wasting our time with these pointless statistics so often.

      Come on Steve, JT didn’t bury the lede. If you feel like you wasted any time reading it, then you only have yourself to blame. Additionally, you’ve used this blog to promote your own. So complaining about his numbers certainly smacks of jealousy.

      Your other commentary is very good, stick to that.

      1. As former commenter in Arizona, Paul S., used to say, “thank you for allowing us to play in your sandbox”.

        OLLY wrote, “Your other commentary is very good”

      3. OLLY wrote, “Additionally, you’ve used this blog to promote your own.”

        Actually what I’ve done is not “promoting”, it’s simply sharing things that I’ve written that I think are relevant to the discussion. I’ve also shared things other bloggers have written that are relevant to the discussion, is that promoting their blogs too? I do not share anything that I don’t think is truely relevant to the discussion, those that promote share lots of irrelevant things just to get clicks, I do not and will not do what promoters do.

        OLLY wrote, “So complaining about his numbers certainly smacks of jealousy.”

        I didn’t complain about the numbers, reread what I wrote. I offered constructive criticizm about sharing blog statistics posts that are completely irrelevant and therefore pointless for readers. In fact I suggested still doing the posts but spreading them out further. I’m not jealous at all, that’s just not who I am.

        Thanks.

        1. I offered constructive criticizm about sharing blog statistics posts that are completely irrelevant and therefore pointless for readers.

          Really? Don’t hurt yourself reaching your arm around your back to pat yourself on the back. I’m not certain what you believe you’re constructing there, but it would appear you’ve anointed yourself the membership spokesperson. JT has been doing this for quite some time and clearly he knows how to make it work. He did make an improvement in these particular posts when he stopped listing the top 5 contributors.

          He does have a public email address that might be a better forum for your suggestions to improve the blog. jturley@law.gwu.edu

    2. I agree with Steve. These numbers, furthermore don’t make any sense. Counting Views, especially cumulative ones isn’t how you evaluate traffic to a web page. What would stop Turley or any other interested party from simply refreshing the site until the desired number of views is reached? Let’s see unique visitors reported by month- it’s been the standard for years now. I don’t know anyone in the SEO/data space that uses views for impact analysis.

  10. Congratulations. Although I wish you did more to address the abuses of the administration you voted for, I also appreciate that which you do do.
