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.

Liberals Digging Their Political Graves
American Thinker, by Christopher Chantrill    Original Article

Do liberals understand what they are doing? I don´t think they do. I think that they are blinkered by their one-dimensional view of politics: it reduces to the struggle for social justice. In 2010 after the midterm the Obamis decided they had to punch back twice as hard against the moneyed interests that would be unleashed by Citizens United. In Seattle the activist left is planning another May Day march: “Capitalist police state... rape of civil liberties.” Oh yeah! Liberals do not think about the real meat of political philosophy, which is not to design a perfect political system with perfect

The Poverty Hoax

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

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

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
