Obama is Abrading
the Social Fabric

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 6/16/2013 6:10:10 AM

I have always believed that regardless of the laws of a nation, the social fabric that binds it is woven of mutual trust between the people and their private and governmental institutions. Once that fabric is weakened, the dangers to an ordered society are extreme. This week, the holes in the U.S. social fabric are manifest, and they are caused by the administration´s ever-expanding lawlessness.. The statements by the high-tech self-exile Snowden set off alarms even among those who are willing to repose their confidence in the general integrity of our intelligence services.

Even without a msm we see the truth about this evil administration.

None of their betrayals would be revealed without a republican congress.

Isn´t it time we stopped bashing our republicans and thanked them.

Every republican committee chairman must deal with a lying vicious democrat to bring the truth to the American people.

While some folks might not care as long as their freebies are still coming, even they know the truth.

...and now the guilty parties are going on an extended road trip to avoid the heat. I assume the de facto potus will also be doing Europe with the First Grifters.

Chicago on the Potomac touring Europe, as if we owe them a pasha and gang trip.

The problem is that this has been a long time coming. Blaming Obama for the problems in our government masks the true depth of the problems. Obama is only able to do what he is doing because politicians of all stripes have been breaking down our system of checks and balances for years.

No IG for your department should mean no budget money for your department.

If Obama appoints an IG, it will have no effect. He will appoint people with marching orders "You see nothing!"

"Abrading" is a word of song. The Beatles were abrading the social fabric in order to take you down to Strawberry Fields. In Strawberry Fields where we are, 62% America hears "abrade," and thinks that a person smart with words sees something going on with fraying yarn, and there is a connection to "lawlessness;" but the "lawlessness" is poetic and has no mass, so there is no actionable consequence, no accountability, nothing to see here. The politically acceptable journalist formula remains in tact: "Outrage, outrage/insult, lush poetic description, vague analysis, risk avoidance overtone,[optional ´best lack all conviction´ disclaimer], and 2 inch deep close." Since WWIII is teeing up on the Jezreel Valley, how about a new formula, in simple words, in Hemingway present tense, with a call for action? [or, K.I.S.S., A.B.C.] Block it thusly: "Is this which we see with our eyes a coup, or does it resemble a coup? Discuss the velvet. Then consider how you, a deep thinking wordsmith, "move the ball/ concept down the field" to teach a country on the 5th grade level, to put pressure on a corrupt congress to exact accountability, by impeachment and by removal." "As Paul, the prize pupil of Gamaliel says, "I preach Christ and him crucified" -- I.e., no fru fru. Or consider Crosby, Stills and Nash in the song "4 Dead in Ohio": "What if you knew her, Lying dead on the ground; How could you run if you know?"

Of course Obama is "abrading the social fabric." He has to if he hopes to keep his campaign promise to "fundamentally transform the United States of America." He and the intellectuals and ideologues he represents think America´s social fabric is all wrong and must be unwoven so that it can be rewoven correctly, i.e. according to their personal political beliefs. I don´t like their ideology and I don´t have a great deal of respect for them as individuals, but at least they know what they are trying to do. Those ultimately to blame for the debacle that is the Obama presidency are the legions of American dopes who put and are keeping this administration in power. It´s not Obama´s fault that American voters were stupid enough to entrust him with the presidency. He could say like a famously corrupt Chicago pol of a bygone era that "I seen my opportunity and I took it."

Obama is the source of destruction of the social fabric but the republicans #3 are giving little or no leadership to stop it. What scandal have they exposed? My fear is that they will loose in 2014 because their supporters are so disheartened by their apparent lack of opposition and even support of Obama´s agenda. Their pushing immigration reform when the whole population is screaming for border security is sheer madness. They think that by pandering they will get a bigger portion of the 7% hispanic vote. What percentage of the much larger evangelical vote will they loose in the process? The only conclusion most voters can believe is that they do not believe any of the things they say at election time. My guess is that there are about 15 - 20 people in positions of leadership in Washington who do not secretly agree with most of the Obama agenda. The rest are doing a fan dance to get our support out of hope that they would help turn things around. I wish it were not so!

Amen, Clarice. I remember at Watergate, people noted which papers objected how soon to the wrongdoing, and those which were late or overly mild took criticism for it for a decade and more. So also this time. We will get the NSA under control and we will remember who helped and who didn´t. Amazingly the NYT seems to be helping the good guys. I am sorry to say the WSJ is standing up for the snoopers.

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam. Obama instead destabilized it by trying to remove every government that was in any way friendly to the

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

Why Ukraine? Why Now?

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

California at Alarming Rate

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
