A tiny fissure has opened in the useful idiocy that defines Piers Morgan:
He laughed at patriots for agreeing with the Founding Fathers that an armed populace is required to prevent tyranny. Yet when incidents occur that “border” on tyranny, he abruptly stops laughing.
It seems that Morgan didn’t have the intellectual capacity to imagine a government that would abuse its power prior to the Obama Regime excesses the press has recently begun to acknowledge. Thousands of years of human history didn’t make a dent in his colossal ignorance.

The perfumed princes Obama put atop the Armed Forces are doing a fine job — assuming their objective is to destroy morale:
The Department of Defense confirms to NBC 5 Investigates that accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan has now been paid more than $278,000 since the Nov. 5, 2009 shooting that left 13 [actually 14] dead [and] 32 injured.
Why is Hasan not dead?
Meanwhile, his victims have been denied Purple Hearts and combat-related pay, because according to the politically correct fools who ignored red flags and allowed the terror attack to occur out of devotion to diversity, it was not a terror attack at all but only workplace violence with a few Allahu Akbars sprinkled on top.

The AP scandal is only the tip of the iceberg regarding Obama Regime malfeasance and thuggery. From the beginning, Obama has made it clear that he resents the relative absence of obsequiousness in Fox News coverage of his presidency. So this should come as no surprise:
The Fox News Channel is outraged over new revelations that three of its reporting staffers were targeted by the U.S. Department of Justice in criminal investigations related to their attempts to obtain information from government sources.
James Rosen, the network’s chief Washington correspondent, has become a First Amendment cause celebre over his treatment by the Obama administration. But the DOJ, Fox says, also investigated the Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter William La Jeunesse and Fox News producer Mike Levine. …
The Washington Post reported Monday morning that Rosen was the subject of a Department of Justice probe in relation to his reporting about North Korea’s likely reactions to new UN sanctions in 2009. Federal investigators read his personal emails, obtained his phone records, and tracked his comings and goings through government buildings.
As for the others…
La Jeunesse broke stories outlining several key elements of the Fast and Furious scandal. Monday’s Inspector General report from the DOJ directly quotes his emails, as well as some from Levine, the Fox News producer.
‘What we don’t know at this point,’ Bream reported, ‘is if the sources within the Justice Department may have shared those emails with investigators, or if the Fox employees’ accounts were directly accessed by investigators. It’s simply a question we cannot answer at this point.’
One thing is safe to say. In fundamentally transformed America, there is no such thing as private electronic communication.

After the repugnant shamelessness with which Democrats exploited the Newtown shootings to advance their anti-liberty agenda, you had to see this coming:
While many Americans were tuned into news coverage of the massive damage from tornadoes ravaging the state of Oklahoma, Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his Republican colleagues for denying the theory of anthropogenic global warming.
Normally leftists like Whitehouse can never spend enough government money. Yet he resents the idea of aid being sent to Oklahoma, which as Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead so viciously observed is largely populated by countermoonbats.
“So, you may have a question for me,” Whitehouse said. “Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together. When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesn’t just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas.”
That is, he actually accused Oklahomans of bringing the tragedy on themselves by refusing to pretend that tornadoes are caused by insufficient federal regulation.
There truly is no lower life form than a left-wing politician.

They don’t call them green Nazis for nothing. The ideologically deranged thugs at the EPA have carried out experiments on human subjects reminiscent of Joseph Mengele. Maybe now that it is considered permissible by the press to acknowledge the widespread gross malfeasance that characterizes the Obama Regime, we’ll hear more than whispers about this:
After accumulating evidence via the Freedom of Information Act that showed the Environmental Protection Agency conducted disturbing experiments that exposed humans to inhalable particulates the agency has said are deadly, sound science advocate Steven Milloy has sued the federal government.
The trials, which were carried out at EPA’s Human Studies Facility at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, exposed subjects to fine particulate matter (called “PM2.5”) at extremely elevated levels for up to two hours at a time.
Here’s how they put your tax dollars to use at the shadowy and alarmingly powerful EPA:
“EPA obtained their PM2.5 from a diesel truck,” explained Dr. David Schnare, a former EPA litigator who is now director of American Tradition Institute’s Environmental Law Center, which filed the lawsuit in Virginia. “It is difficult to overstate the atrocity of this research.
“EPA parked a truck’s exhaust pipe directly beneath an intake pipe on the side of a building. The exhaust was sucked into the pipe, mixed with some additional air and then piped directly into the lungs of the human subjects. EPA actually has pictures of this gas chamber, a clear plastic pipe stuck into the mouth of a subject, his lips sealing it to his face, diesel fumes inhaled straight into his lungs.”
Considering their extremely low regard for the human race, it makes perfect sense that environmental extremists would conduct harmful experiments on people rather than the sacred animals we so anthropocentrically oppress.
Maybe the press hasn’t told us much about this because reporters are afraid their homes will be declared “wetlands.” Learn more about this shocking case at EPA Human Testing.

Ever since Hitler blew off the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact and turned on their Uncle Joe, lefties have had it in for Nazis, even going so far as to claim that National Socialists are not fellow socialists. A healthy dislike for the swastika is one of the few things libs have in common with countermoonbats. Hopefully that dislike will endure, even now that their Islamic compadres are flying it openly:
Hundreds of residents of Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem, were astounded Monday morning to see an oversized Nazi flag flying next to a mosque in the Arab town of Beit Omar. …
A resident, Uri Arnon, told the Tazpit News Agency: “I felt we were going back 75 years, losing our hold on the land. The Arabs no longer feel the need to hide their murderous tendencies, announcing out loud that they wish to annihilate us.”
Artful fence-straddling doesn’t work in the face of pure evil. Moonbats are going to have to choose sides.

Watch as the courageous countermoonbat Jason Richwine grasps the nettle by honestly discussing the most important issue of our time — the demographic transformation of America:
As you might expect, the moonbat establishment does not take kindly to frank talk on this topic. A lynch mob consisting of leftists and RINOs has forced him to resign from the Heritage Foundation. In case that doesn’t send a sufficiently intimidating message, liberal thugs are now demanding an investigation of those at Harvard who approved his PhD dissertation.
If people like Richwine were allowed to tell the truth about what the ruling class is doing to this country, the public might rise up and stop it.

Kudos to the Chicago CBS affiliate for not using the misleading euphemism “teens” in this print report:
An elderly woman was confronted on the Magnificent Mile by a mob of young men on Wednesday, who proceeded to take $100,000 worth of jewelry she was wearing.
A Chicago police source said the 69-year-old woman from Homewood Flossmoor was accosted by 10 to 12 African American men while walking in the 700 block of North Michigan around noon in front of Saks Fifth Avenue.
They threatened to beat her if she didn’t give them her purse and jewelry. …
The men involved were between 18 and 19 years-old. They were wearing baggy pants and dreads.
Normally attacking lone Caucasians in mob formation is its own reward. Swiping some jewelry is icing on the cake. But why wait around for the government to redistribute other people’s wealth?
Note that the TV version of the story has been politically corrected. There is no mention of race; the baggy pants and dreadlocks are expunged; a woman on the street implies that it was the victim’s fault; another woman on the street testifies that the robbery was unusual; the number of attackers is reduced to “up to a half dozen”; and of course, they are repeatedly referred to as “teens”:

Good news and bad regarding our treasonous government’s refusal to defend the border and prevent us from being displaced from our own country by welfare colonists. First the good: the non-deportation rate for illegal aliens demanding citizenship under a heavy-handed Obama policy has dropped. Now the bad: even after dropping, it is a staggering 99.2%.
The Homeland Security Department has granted legal status to 99.2 percent of all illegal immigrants who have applied under President Obama’s new non-deportation policy for young adults, according to the latest numbers released Friday.
That’s a slight drop from the 99.5 percent approval rate reported last month.
The policy, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, grants legal status to most illegal immigrants under the age of 31 who came to the U.S. before age 16 — usually brought by their parents. They are allowed to remain in the U.S. without fear of deportation, and are given work permits. Most states have agreed to issue them driver’s licenses as well.
DACA is seen as a test-run should Congress pass a broad legalization for the 11 million illegal immigrants estimated [by the pro-amnesty crowd, which won’t admit that the real number is probably several times higher] to be in the U.S.
That’s one reason why the high approval rate is striking.
Critics of the Obama policy say a rate that high means the administration isn’t doing much screening of those who are applying.
Apparently the Regime is sufficiently confident that the vast majority of them will vote Democrat that screening is not considered necessary.

Regarding the appalling IRS/Tea Party scandal, inquiring minds are want to know how far up the chain the rot goes. Let’s ask a staffer at the Cincinnati headquarters, command center for harassing patriot groups:
“We’re not political,’’ said one determinations staffer in khakis as he left work late Tuesday afternoon. “We people on the local level are doing what we are supposed to do. . . . That’s why there are so many people here who are flustered. Everything comes from the top. We don’t have any authority to make those decisions without someone signing off on them. There has to be a directive.”

You wanted multiculturalism, Sweden? Now you’ve got it:
Gangs of youth angered by the police shooting death of an elderly man [who died while attacking police with a knife] in a mainly immigrant neighborhood hurled rocks at police and set cars and buildings on fire in a Stockholm suburb [Husby] early Monday, forcing the evacuation of an apartment block.
“Youth” in European news stories is a euphemism for Muslim hooligans. That the euphemism “Asian” wasn’t used is an indication that they are black Africans, probably Somalis. The area where this occurred is 80% non-Swedish.
[Police spokesman Lars] Bystrom said police responded to calls of burning cars and were met by masked youths hurling rocks at them.
One policeman was attacked by youths kicking him and two others were injured by rocks, local police officer Jorgen Karlsson said. He added around 10 cars were set ablaze, and windows were smashed at two schools and several local businesses. …
“I understand that people react like this,” said Rami Al-Khamisi from the organization Megafonen, which represents [non-Swedish] citizens in Stockholm’s suburbs.
Another time, the pretext was some of the “youths” not being allowed into a school dance:
Rioters in the Swedish capital, Stockholm, have burned down a school building and thrown stones at police in a second night of disturbances.
The trouble began on Monday after a group of youths in a suburb with a mainly immigrant population were refused entry to a school dance.
Police say up to 100 youths went on the rampage, throwing stones and setting several cars alight.
Punishment was as swift and severe as you would expect of a country liberal enough to let them in in the first place.
Two people were detained but later released.
Police said the rioters threw stones at the fire engines, preventing them from reaching the school building before it burned to the ground. The youths also attacked a police station.
Rinkeby [the part of Stockholm where this occurred] is home to a large number of first- and second-generation immigrants. Many of them are from Somalia, so the area is sometimes nicknamed Little Mogadishu.
Good thing multiculturalism rejects assimilation, because these beasts won’t assimilate with Swedes in 1,000 years.
Any government that deliberately imports this crisis is treasonous. Any ideology that calls for its importation is pernicious and depraved.

In our upside-down world run by moonbats, no one is too tough to get beat up on by the Gay Mafia, not even the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Nate Diaz:
Nate Diaz received a 90-day ban and was fined $20,000 by the UFC on Friday, a day after the lightweight fighter used a homophobic slur on Twitter.
Like other professional sports, the UFC is run by sniveling weenies disgustingly eager to pander to the vile, thuggish ideology we know as political correctness.
“We are very disappointed by Nate Diaz’s comments, which are in no way reflective of our organization,” the UFC said in a statement to FOXSports.com. “Nate is currently suspended pending internal investigation and we will provide further comment once the matter has been decided.”
Diaz’s thought crime consists of having called a rival fighter a “fag.” This would have virtually nothing to do with homosexuals, except that in our society, everything has to do with homosexuals — and the political mandate to revere them obsequiously.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn relates a comparable incident in the Gulag Archipelago. A tailor stuck a pin in a newspaper so as not to lose track of it. The pin happened to get a picture of Stalin right in the eye. A customer noticed this and reported him to the authorities. He was shipped off to the gulags to likely death by hard labor.
