Shifting Sands
American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:geo11, 6/29/2014 5:29:32 AM

If you paid close attention this week, you could see the sand shifting under Obama’s feet. From public opinion to the federal courts to the president’s former putative allies, it was not a good week to be Obama, and it’s likely to get worse for him. Walkabouts in D.C., travels to distant fundraisers, preposterous flailing on the international scene, and more shots with his cute kids are not going to change the situation as far as I can tell. Yet he lacks other options.
1. Hard Drives are Crashing all over the Place. This week, the efforts to push the IRS scandal under the carpet seem to be unavailing. Increased numbers of IT experts say the crashed drive story is implausible.

King Putt may have a pen, but it is filled with erasable ink.

Obama will land on his feet. It´s going to be much worse for all of us BECAUSE of the psychopaths who voted for him.

It´s becoming clear that the Obamunists in every agency, not just in the IRS, have hunkered down and developed a common strategy...deliberate destruction of evidence of collusion. And they have all apparently come up with the same excuse...hard drive failure.

No matter how implausible (actually, it´s statistically impossible), they´re brazenly using that same excuse. And I believe there´s a specific, diabolically clever reason why they´re not ashamed or afraid to use that ludicrous excuse. Namely, with no evidence of a crime, the worst they could be forced to face would be civil penalties for spoliation...fines, as in the IRS case...which are paid by taxes collected from us.

Until and unless these people are hit by jail terms, loss of jobs, and loss of personal funds, these illegal acts will continue.

...the president’s petulance, disrespect for the coequal branches of government, and boundless view of his powers continues to add to the kinds of uncertainty and stasis that is so harmful to our economic and political life. His shortcomings deny him firm footing …they are a kind of quicksand into which he is rapidly sinking beyond rescue.

Clarice´s words directly to God´s ears, please.

It appears that O´s immaturity, vindictiveness, and petulance have revealed to his elitist supporters that he isn´t trustworthy enough to make cogent, wise decisions for the country.

As for his non-elitist supporters, the lofos, they´re just hopeless. Like the poor who will always be among us. also will there be that 33% who still believe that Democrats have their best interests at heart.

Clarise,honey, how do you figure that Obam is sinking in quicksand from which there is no rescue ? It is working out just like he planned. The country is thrown into chaos, the opposition leadership does not oppose - indeed attack their own base, and the lawless Holder does nothing. People are afraid of their own government,illegal immigrants flood the country,the rule of law fading fast, the global warming hoax being forced on us and the prospect of continued untold damage for the next two years - so tell me again where is he and his agenda sinking beyond rescue ?

There are shifting sands in the GOP as well. This week we discovered a GOP equal to Obama, his name is Haley Barbour. At least the shifting sands have a way of revealing the true character of individuals. It´s a big disappointment to learn without a doubt the GOP, like the Democrats, will stoop to anything for power.
The shifting sands will do nothing to effect Obama. He will ignore them and continue on his path of destruction. He will throw people under the bus with blame, but not allow these scandals to effect him personally. I wish it were otherwise.

Haley Barbour in the past appeared to be a decent person. Now he looks more like a glob of slime mixed in the sewer of politics. He sits right next to that other, though thinner slime glob resembling a turtle. Haley Barbour (not to be confused with Haley Mills, the actress) is no better than obomba. The methods they use are to win much too similar. As to the other globs of disgust...Rand Paul seems to have had his tank flushed this weekend. The lot stinks to high heaven. RotoRooter is needed ASAP. Flush all into that portion of the ocean waters that the pseudo king declares to be off limits to the peons, US. There is no longer an ´US´ it is now WE and THEM

There must be something in the water supplied to Washington D.C. It seems that every thought to be decent person that gets elected or starts working there comes down with the same affliction. Simply put, they become slimes. The only thing they can think of is their own "position" and how to keep it. Oh, and of course, be able to reap mountains of cash. Note if you will, the shear numbers those who go to DC nearly flat broke (just like Hillary) and come out with a boat load of money (like Dingy Harry). So, I can only conclude that it must be something in the water that is unique to DC.

I´ve been wondering for decades - - when the Pubbies would grow a spine - - and go on the attack after their political opponents.

Now - - at last - - it has finally happened! The Pubbies are waging a fierce, all-out war against the Constitutional conservatives - - the ones they fear may stand between them all that juicy federal pork.

Who says the Pubbies are spineless milquetoasts? Not any more! They can be as fierce as the demonrats. They just needed a real enemy to attack.

The problem with The Dog Ate My Hard Drive is they can´t change the story. It´s like when a husband shows up at 4 am and his wife demands to know where he´s been. He says I was at Joe´s Bar having a few brews with friends. And his wife saying it burned down 3 years ago. All the guy can say is that´s my story and I´m sticking with it. Anyone with any sense knows you never put anything in an e mail that you wouldn´t want put on the front page of the local newspaper. I´ve used and built many pcs. The only hard drives I´ve ever had a problem with were the ones that we dead coming out of the box. But I turn pcs off when not in use. A better and more logical lie would be we forgot our password. That´ definitely happened to me.

We´ll know if the Obama gang is in quicksand once we see the results of the 2014 and 2016 elections.

Much of our government is just like Obama and flips the bird at everyone. They wouldn´t be doing that if they thought their would be consequences.

Far too many self absorbed voters out there that are ignorant of the frightful attitude of our government.

The moneyed interests that finance these politicians will never accept a true Tea Party Conservative as a candidate. They are now using their deep pockets to destroy anyone who claims to be Tea Party.

Unfortunately our friends at Fox News are assisting as well. Today on Fox News Sunday they had a segment on how the Tea Party lost in Mississippi. Emphasis was that the people preferred the mainstream candidate. Not one word about calling McDaniel a racist in their robocalls and flyers.

Operation Protective Edge is underway, and it’s turning into a full-scale ground operation. No thinking person can blame Israel’s leaders for taking steps to protect their citizens from the tens of thousands of unprovoked rocket attacks that have been launched in their direction by Hamas from Gaza. Now, rewind to 2012 and Operation Pillar of Defense. The central characters are the same, and the critical events are the same. Now, rewind to 2008 and Operation Cast Lead.

My fellow Americans, we are all bit players in the making of a metaphoric slasher movie: Obama Unchained, starring Barack Hussein Obama. Here is a summary of the movie. It is a heartwarming tale about how the mainstream media and Democratic Party suckered America into electing their extreme far-left dream president – a Trojan Horse in the form of a black man.

In the nearly 20 months since Mitt Romney lost the election to President Barack Obama, many of the former Massachusetts governor´s predictions have played out on the world stage. For instance, Romney called Russia the nation´s "number one geopolitical foe"; he pledged strong support for Israel amid tense relations with Iran and other neighbors; declared that corporations are "people" — and said that illegal immigration remained a continued threat to the American economy. As many realities have developed in the U.S. and abroad, Romney´s popularity has increased in national polls — and it is believed that he is considering a White House

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Which of those solemn promises has Barack H. Obama not betrayed? I can’t think of a single one. If Obama is different from other presidents, it’s not for the color of his skin, which is just a PR hustle to blackmail suckers into proving they aren’t racists. No: Obama will be historic for his fanatical leftism, which has no precedent in American history. The biggest headline

The chaos unfolding at the border demonstrates the catastrophic, real-world consequences of the president’s lawless conduct. For the last five years, with average household incomes falling and Americans being pushed out of the workforce, the president has been engaged in a sustained campaign to strip away Americans’ immigration protections. He has accomplished his aims: Interior removals have been cut by more than 40 percent. President Obama’s own former ICE director reported to the Los Angeles Times that “if you are a run-of-the-mill immigrant here illegally, your odds of getting deported are close to zero.”

Obama seems to think that stonewalling Congress regarding the hidden e-mails that obviously incriminate his toadies at the IRS is a winning strategy. The leftist establishment media is ignoring the scandal. The House of Representatives has already found Lois Lerner in contempt, a stark and direct condemnation, yet the arrogance of Obama’s flacks remains untouched. What can the House of Representatives do about this mess?

I´ve been thinking over the Cantor loss and the Cochran win and the whole question of the Republican Party divided between its Beltway establishment and its Tea Party insurgency. And last week I read James V. DeLong´s excellent piece about the divide between the wheeling and dealing of the Republican establishment and the “values and concerns” (or V&C) of the ordinary GOP voter.

Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.” Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally.

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

The book, in this midterm election year, is a strong rebuttal of the progressive ideology behind President Obama’s policies, which have been supported by Costco co-founder and director Jim Sinegal, a major Democrat donor and a speaker at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that nominated the president.

President Obama evidently has decided not to put a human face on the crisis unfolding at the U.S. southern border—not even his own. The White House said over and over again Monday that Obama will not travel to the border with Mexico despite flying to Texas this week to raise money for Democratic candidates there. It´s certainly in part a political decision, one meant to avoid taking ownership of a difficult issue on which the White House would prefer to share blame. (Snip) In other words, if Obama goes goes to the border, he owns the problem. If he doesn't, he's blasted for a lack of leadership.

Hamas militants in Gaza have fired ´dozens´ of rockets into southern Israel after six of its men died in an Israeli airstrike, the Islamist group said. The bombardment was confirmed by the Israeli army which said militants had launched ´a few dozen rockets´ within a short period of time. [Snip] At least four rockets were intercepted over Netivot by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, while another 16 struck the area around the southern city of Beersheva, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Gaza, and which is home to 200,000 people, the army said.
