In simpler times, we could just refer to the latest edition of the Newspeak dictionary to learn which words are currently permissible to use. But political correctness is more complicated now; some words constitute serious thought crimes, but only if used by the wrong people, like the forbidden N-word, or to refer to the wrong people, like the 12 terms that it would be “sexist” to apply to Shrillary Clinton. Tweets NY Times political reporter and self-proclaimed Shrillary chronicler Amy Chozick:

All apply to Shrillary, all right, hopefully excepting #6. For now they overlooked others that are still more apt, like corrupt, criminal, arrogant, wicked, and vile.
At least we have been forewarned that just as any and all criticism of Obama has been racist and therefore beyond the pale, anything Shrillary doesn’t want said will be condemned as sexist.

The rot is spreading to every corner of the country. From the heart of the Heartland:
A black Nebraska state senator compared American police to Islamic terrorists and suggested he’d shoot a cop if only he had a weapon.
State Sen. Ernie Chambers said during a legislative hearing on gun bills Friday that you don’t have to go halfway around the world to find an ISIS mentality. It can be found in America because police terrorize blacks every day.
He was referring to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which has beheaded journalists and brutally executed Westerners and others.
“My ISIS is the police,” Chambers said…
In Nebraska, for crying out loud. Since there is no safe haven from moonbattery, there is no use running away. All you can do is turn and fight.
Chambers represents north Omaha, a high-crime area where racial tension simmers and sometimes erupts after encounters with police. […He] has served 40 years in the Legislature and often talks about slavery, racial tension and Christian hypocrisy.
Here’s what he has to say about those who put their lives on the line to protect public safety:
“If I was going to carry a weapon, it wouldn’t be against you, it wouldn’t be against these people who come here that I might have a dispute with. Mine would be for the police,” he said. “And if I carried a gun I’d want to shoot him first and then ask questions later, like they say the cop ought to do.”
As for the establishment media’s take on this explosive story:
His comments Friday were ignored by reporters covering the hearing, although the Capitol reporter working for the Associated Press produced a flattering weekend profile on sketches Chambers draws during hearings.
The rot never would have progressed this far if decent people were to put up resistance. That’s why the public must remain uninformed.

Finally. Racketeering charges have at long last been brought against the infamously corrupt Hillary Clinton, if only in the form of a lawsuit:
The conservative group Freedom Watch has filed a racketeering lawsuit against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that accuses her of failing to produce documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The civil suit, filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, argues that Clinton used her private emails to sell access to other officials in return for donations to the Clinton Foundation.
It alleges that, during her tenure, Clinton withheld documents requested under FOIA regarding State Department waivers given to businesses or individuals doing business with Iran, possibly undermining U.S.-imposed sanctions.
The complaint, which lists Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation as defendants, alleges the Clintons sold access to other U.S. government officials in return for donations to their organization, which they concealed, allegedly, by using a private computer server for her emails operated from their home in Chappaqua, New York.
You didn’t think she would go to such lengths to illegally keep her State Department emails from the public because she was afraid we would learn her secret cookie recipes, did you?
The suit was brought by Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman. His charges imply crimes beyond racketeering:
In the new lawsuit, he alleges that, during Hillary Clinton’s tenure, the State Department “clearly leaked” information to New York Times reporter David Sanger on U.S. and Israeli efforts to counteract Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
“Public reports about plans to counter Iran’s nuclear weapons development programs undermined the effectiveness of those plans by revealing them to Iran and other terrorist organizations and states,” the complaint states.
That would be treason. We used to execute people for that sort of thing. The payoff from Iran must have been generous.

America has two extremely close overseas allies: Britain and Israel. Obama has made it abundantly clear that he hates both of them. He has offered British nuclear secrets to the Russians. Now, as Obama boils with rage that Israel reelected the patriotic Netanyahu despite his illicit attempts to sway the election in the opposite direction, we read this:
In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.
But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.
The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.
Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel’s sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.
For now, until Obama indulges in some fit of pique against them.
Again we see the drawbacks of electing an adolescent punk to be President, no matter how historic his skin color.
By the time this sick farce of a presidency is over, America will have no allies, and our worst enemy Iran will have nuclear weapons and the upper hand in the Middle East. The liberal fools responsible will continue to blame Bush.

Marie Harf Smirkingly Dismissed the Recollections of Bergdahl’s Platoon Mates Regarding His Desertion
Let’s not be too quick to condemn Bowe Bergdahl. After all, he has only been charged with desertion and misbehavior in the face of the enemy; he hasn’t been convicted. If you listen to his platoon mates, he not only deserted but defected. But what do they know? They aren’t half as smart as the State Department’s Marie Harf. You can tell by her glasses and superior smirk. From last June:
Don’t put it past Obama to pardon Bergdahl. He loves grinding his thumb in the eye of what’s left of this country.
Via iOTWReport, on a tip from Chish.
Great news for anyone who still regards Obama as some sort of legitimate president: he actually found a Senator willing to vote for his proposed budget.
The Senate on Tuesday destroyed any lingering hope President Barack Obama might have had for passing his budget plan through Congress this year, by voting down Obama’s plan 1-98.
The only senator to vote for the plan was Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.).
Obama’s budgets are not always as successful as this one.
In recent years, versions of Obama’s plans have failed in the House without getting a single vote from any Democrat. This week, the House is expected to skip the ritual of voting on Obama’s plan, but it was picked up in the Senate this year.
Notes Senator John Cornyn (R-TX),
“Since 2011, it’s only gotten two votes for the president’s proposed budget, 1,023 votes against.”
You can see why Obama prefers to rule by executive order, rather than work with the legislature as the Constitution prescribes.
On a tip from Wingmann.
The officer corps must need some more purging, because someone in the Army stood up to Obama. Bowe Bergdahl, for whom Obama traded five top Taliban commanders housed with the rest of the world’s most dangerous terrorists at Club Gitmo, has been charged with desertion:
Army officials said in a statement that Bergdahl has been charged with desertion with intent to shirk important or hazardous duty and misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place. …
Under the misbehavior-before-the-enemy charge, Bergdahl faces a maximum punishment of confinement for life, a dishonorable discharge, a reduction to private and total forfeiture of pay and allowances since the time of his disappearance, Army officials said. The desertion charge carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison, a dishonorable discharge, a reduction to private and a total forfeiture of pay and allowances.
Desertion has historically been punishable by death, but the Army will not pursue that in Bergdahl’s case.
Too bad, because he richly deserves it. He also likely deserves to be charged with treason for deliberately defecting to the enemy in time of war. But then, treason is no big deal in the Age of Hope & Change.
At last word, Bergdahl was still walking around loose, according to Chief of Public Affairs Paul Boyce:
“Sgt. Robert Bowdrie (“Bowe”) Bergdahl remains assigned to and physically located with U.S. Army North headquarters at Fort Sam Houston. He is not in pretrial confinement or any form of arrest or restriction.”
If honor prevails, Bergdahl will make use of this opportunity to do the right thing and put an end to his own misery. But honor certainly has not prevailed where Bergdahl is concerned in the past.
A good day for the Taliban, certainly.
Watch in horror as representatives of the Obama Administration characterize the deserter as having served with “honor and distinction”:
Another Obama official even implied that Bergdahl might have been right to desert.
As many as 14 US soldiers who really did serve with honor and distinction died looking for Bergdahl.
The Obama Administration waged an intimidation campaign against soldiers who might speak out against Bergdahl, possibly lest it become known that he did not just desert, but defected and collaborated with the enemy:
As Obama traded the terrorist commanders for Bergdahl, Andrew Tahmooressi was languishing in a Mexican prison. A simple phone call from Obama would have freed him; but Obama couldn’t be bothered. But then Tahmooressi didn’t win Obama’s heart with statements like this:
“I am sorry for everything here [in Afghanistan]. These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid.”
“I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”
Does anyone remember Audie Murphy?
Audie Leon Murphy (20 June 1925 – 28 May 1971) was one of the most decorated American combat soldiers of World War II, receiving every military combat award for valor available from the U.S. Army, as well as French and Belgian awards for heroism. At the age of 19, Murphy received the Medal of Honor after single-handedly holding off an entire company of German soldiers for an hour at the Colmar Pocket in France in January 1945, then leading a successful counterattack while wounded and out of ammunition.
Then he went on to star in some excellent westerns.
Audie Murphy personified all that was best about the America that defeated the Nazis and the Imperial Japanese. Bowe Bergdahl personifies all that is worst about the America that elected Obama.

It looks like the de facto nullification of the Constitution is complete — unless even the members of Congress willing to put up resistance to Obama’s nuke deal with our worst enemy don’t know what’s in the Constitution:
American lawmakers have threatened new sanctions on Iran as well as the establishment of a process which would allow them to vote down any final accord.
From Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the document that validates our government:
[The President] shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur…
All they have to do to block Obama’s sweetheart deal with the ayatollahs is not concur. No new laws are needed, provided the Constitution is still in force.
As for what’s in the treaty, no one except Obama, Hanoi John Kerry, and their ayatollah cronies get to know that, as State Department spokescretin Jen Psaki confirms:
Or as Nasty Pelosi might say, “We have to sign the treaty so that you can find out what is in it.”

If they allow us to have cars at all when liberal utopia is achieved, they will be cars like the new Ford S-Max:
A camera mounted on the windshield scans the road signs on the sides of the highway and, when the vehicle enters a 20mph zone, the system reduces the top speed to match. Rather than controlling the speed with automatic braking, the car limits its own velocity by adjusting the amount of fuel being pushed to the engine.
What fun vandals will have moving or otherwise tampering with speed limit signs.

Culture War Escalates to Use of Heavy Ordnance: Azealia Banks Tweets Picture of Her Genitals to Conservatives
Rap “artist” Azealia Banks has discovered the secret to success in a country run by moonbats, as she demonstrated with a revoltingly vulgar Playboy interview in which she expressed her hatred of normal Americans. A society that encourages vileness from juvenile idiots gets more of it:
After Banks said “I hate everything about this country” in an interview with Playboy, Matt Walsh, a blogger for TheBlaze, and radio host Wayne Dupree criticized the singer/rapper online. Walsh wrote a blog post challenging the singer to follow through on her threats to leave the U.S., while Dupree and Banks battled it out on Twitter.
The conflicts resulted in Banks sending a tweet (since removed) to both with a shot of her genitals and the statement “If you guys look closely enough you can see the future.”
That really will be the future where our culture is concerned if liberals keep winning the Culture War. You’ll know it is over when people like Obama and Azealia Banks stop hating America.

There is no better time for adversaries to advance than while the USA is leaderless:
Obama reportedly will not meet with NATO’s new secretary general when he is in Washington this week, despite requests from the alliance chief’s staff for a get-together. …
Stoltenberg is scheduled to be in Washington through Thursday, primarily so he can attend a strategic brainstorming session involving military officials and experts from the U.S and NATO. …
The report of Obama’s snub comes amid Russia’s growing willingness to test NATO’s military readiness. On Tuesday, NATO jets were scrambled after four Russian military planes were spotted flying over the Baltic Sea with their transponders turned off. Over the weekend, a Danish newspaper published remarks by the Russian ambassador to Denmark in which he hinted that Russian missiles could target Danish warships if Copenhagen joins NATO’s missile defense system.
But the most far-reaching example of Russian belligerence came Tuesday, when Britain’s Daily Telegraph reported that Moscow was preparing to lease 12 long-range bombers to Argentina in exchange for shipments of beef and wheat. The report comes after a round of rhetoric from Russian officials questioning Britain’s claim to the Falkland Islands.
In a 2013 referendum, 99.8% of Falklands inhabitants voted to remain part of Britain. But Third-World Argentina still wants to seize the islands from our historical closest ally. Guess who Obama sides with?
But if the West remains leaderless for much longer as Putin grows stronger, we will have bigger problems than a reprise of the 1982 Falklands War.

Given that their malign lunatic policies are hostile to America, Democrats cannot win the White House without a complicit media stampeding the bovine herd of low information voters in their direction. When her latest scandal exploded, it started to look like Shrillary had lost crucial media support. But apparently she has MSM apparatchiks back in her corner for now:
On Monday evening, mainstream media reporters reportedly gave Hillary Clinton a standing ovation after she joked about her private email scandal and took no questions from the press–at an event honoring excellence in journalism.
That is, she joked about her flagrant abuse of power, illicit secrecy, and contempt for the law, and the press expressed unquestioning support. That about sums up the role of the media under a Democrat administration.
Coming from Shrillary, this was the funniest of the jokes she told:
“We need more than ever smart, fair-minded journalists to challenge our assumptions, push us towards new solutions, and hold all of us accountable,” she reportedly told mainstream media reporters who notoriously protect Democrats like Clinton.
Whoever gives the orders to mainstream media myrmidons must have looked around at the other Democrat prospects and decided they had better back Shrillary even if she deserves prison time over Emailgate, lest they wake up to a President Cruz. Either that or her sucking up to Obama is starting to pay off.

Why wait until soda is illegal before moving on to the next item on the hit list? After all, they didn’t wait for cigarettes to be illegal before going after soda. New York City has fired the opening shots against the public menace known as fruit juice:
In a pint-sized version of ex-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to ban super-sized sugary drinks, the city’s Board of Health on Monday announced dramatically stricter rules for all licensed city day cares, including a limit on how much juice kids can drink.
Under the new rules, designed to try to cut obesity rates, children must be at least 2 years old before they can take their first sip of juice at day care, and they are only allowed four ounces a day.
Only 100% juice is allowed.
