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.

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.

"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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it.

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

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.

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.

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

He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president."

Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has one theme: Race matters. (Snip) She takes a dig at Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote once, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.” Sotomayor says: “It is a sentiment out of touch with reality.” Sotomayor says, “Race matters.
