The Last Man Standing

Last week, as I slogged my way through the reams of scandal-related material flowing out of President Barack Obama’s funhouse like a tsunami of sewage, a sudden realization interrupted my research. With the scandals Obama and his henchmen have created polluting the national discourse, it is becoming increasingly apparent that a special prosecutor will be appointed soon. In fact, with even members of the Democratic Party demanding Obama appoint someone untainted by the stench of White House shame, a special prosecutor may well be unpacking his gear in some K-Street office even as we speak. Hooray for us; within 12 years, we managed to not only elect but re-elect Presidents who were so decency-averse that scandal defined them to the point of potential impeachment.

Whether the linchpin turns out to be the lies about Benghazi, the Internal Revenue Service or wiretapping the media (or some combination of the three), it would seem likely that the least transparent President since the days of Warren Harding and the Teapot Dome is headed for the kind of limelight that doesn’t include photo-ops with Jay-Z and Steven Spielberg. There’s a better chance of Administration officials seeing the inside of a prison cell than the inside of George Soros’ private jet.

I would hardly complain. The disgraces with which Obama and his minions have saddled the Nation will take years to undo. In some cases, the damage may well be permanent. And I’d rather see the President and some of his more sinister sidekicks do time than see them continue to wage their full-frontal assault on the Bill of Rights. If we learned anything from the tribulations of the Richard Nixon Administration, we learned that the Constitution — and by extension, America — can withstand the slings and arrows of executive arrogance.

However, a caveat lurks behind the curtain of comeuppance. Let’s presume that someone in Obama’s gang will follow I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby — who certainly didn’t kill anyone — into the clutches of the Federal penal system. What if that newest resident at the least recommended bed and breakfast in either Petersburg, Va., or Danbury, Conn., turns out to be Attorney General Eric “Guns” Holder? What if Holder doesn’t take his perp walk solo? What if former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman joins him? What if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gets Martha Stewart’s old cot at the Alderson, W.V., prison camp for wayward women?

The answer to all of the above: not much. Perhaps fewer bodies will pile up in Mexico and Benghazi, Libya. It’s likely that educating people about their Constitutional rights will lose its place on the list of “things that will earn a proctological exam from the taxman” list. But no one of any consequence would miss any of Obama’s backup dancers.

But here’s the thought that ought to keep you awake tonight: What if Obama himself ends up facing the pokey? Although even Nixon escaped with an “unindicted co-conspirator” nametag, he didn’t actually join his minions in prison. Nixon’s lies and cover-ups didn’t involve letting the phone ring off the hook while a U.S. ambassador and his colleagues died alone in the desert, and he never sent IRS goon squads after any liberal organization. (Unlike the Tea Party and similar groups, liberal groups during Nixon’s time built and used bombs against Americans; just ask Bill Ayers.) Nonetheless, if Obama’s lease on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is terminated by the landlords (that would be we, the people) and his accomplices in his Administration also get the bum’s rush, then the Presidency would be assumed by the next person in the Presidential order of succession who remains unsullied by Obama’s misdeeds. Not only would that person have to be clear of any wrongdoing, but he would have to have been unaware of said crimes.

That person is Vice President Joe Biden. Go ahead and take a belt straight from the whiskey bottle. You read that right. To the best of my knowledge, Ol’ Pluggsy really didn’t know. Granted, that ignorance was likely a result of his inability to keep his mouth shut, in combination with the fact that Biden makes former Vice President Dan “Potatoe” Quayle look like Marcus Tullius Cicero. But the Constitution doesn’t specify the President must be intellectually capable of handling the duties of the Oval Office, only that he be eligible.

Biden may well be the last man standing. Of all the frights flung at us by Obama and his circus, that’s the scariest of all.

  • Dirty Daug

    Having Biden to take over as President would be as crazy as Saturday Night Live. Someone could film Biden going about as President and have an #1 comic movie. In years to come people would still be talking about Biden the halfwitt President.

    • Vigilant

      The film industry already had a chance to do that with Carter and elected not to do it.

  • village idiot

    Hold it there Ben, give them a chance to visit South Africa and collect another award before the special prosecutor is appointed and remember they are collectors of awards, not conscientious leaders of the American people. It must be so great to be an “untouchable”, but they are going to Africa where such species abound aplenty so they will be in good company.

  • $28109413

    Biden would be president like “Chauncey Gardener” aka Peter Sellers from the movie “Being There.” The guy spoke nonsense, that political insiders mistook for profound wisdom, proving “their” ignorance…
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078841/synopsis

    • Wizzardly

      That’s an interesting post that made me smile. But the premise of “Being There” was that Chauncey Gardner was divinely guided to enable us to bring out the best in ourselves (“in God we trust”). Biden, not so much.

      • $28109413

        That’s for sure, Chauncey was an idiot savant so to speak, Biden’s just an idiot…..PERIOD
        Although a good friend of mine says he’s just “playing dumb”. That he’s really sly like a fox and we need to be wary of him.
        Someone else also pointed out that maybe he’s the reason we’re seeing (finally) some chinks in Obama’s and Hillary’s facade now. That Joe was at least partly responsible for the leaks (WH aspirations for uncle Joe)???

      • Vigilant

        Agreed. Chauncey walked on water in the last scene.
        Biden merely crawls in the mud with the rest of his party.

        • mnkysnkle

          A snake slithers, a worm crawls. You shure have a high opinion of ole Joe. But it fits Barry too. :)

      I like to watch….. LOL
      Spot on.

    • Farleyagain

      Wrong, O is Chauncey. But he doesn’t “like to watch” anymore.

  • Rick

    Did someone drop LSD in my drink or is it still the Pentagon and the military’s job to defend Embassy’s around the world.Your fancy double talk is not going to cover up the fact that you Ban are jumping to conclusions by assuming that it is Obama that sent the IRS after these so called LIBERTARIAN organizations.Who knows it might o’ been the Repub’s doing it because they for one do not want any competition and 2 do not want the right wing vote split.Either way most of what you said in this article is at best a bunch of UNSUBSTANTIATED HOG WASH.

    • Vigilant

      “Unsubstantiated hogwash.” thy name is Rick.

      To answer your question, yes, someone dropped either LSD or a stupid pill in your drink.

      Repubs sending the IRS out? Uh, the IRS comes under the Treasury Dept., which is part of the Executive Branch, or didn’t your programmers tell you that in school? And the Pentagon and military are likewise part of the Executive Branch. What part of “Commander in Chief” do you not understand?

      You are like Obama himself, attempting to shift blame every time you see it. And Mr. Crystal substantiates his remarks one hell of a lot better than you do. Paid shill.

      • rbrooks

        “Unsubstantiated hogwash.”

        that would be a good description of the majority of the fairy tales posted on this site.

        • Vigilant

          You would be 100% correct. Now, if we could just stop the left-of-center folks from doing it, it would be a more credible discussion.

          • rbrooks

            the author of this fairy tale is a left of center writer?

          • Vigilant

            No, that’s a fairy tale.

        • Ringgo1

          Ah! Here’s our troll! Here again to spew, stew, and generally put down. So, how does it feel to put yourself down?

      • WTS/JAY

        Very nice job, Vigilant!

    • JFSEB

      No, it is the job of the military, according to their sacred oath, to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Obama is certain to be one or the other. So where are the generals? They all got fired by Obama, and because of his paranoia, he replaced them all with boot-licking sychophants

  • Vigilant

    Ben says, “And I’d rather see the President and some of his more sinister sidekicks do time than see them continue to wage their full-frontal assault on the Bill of Rights.”

    Incarceration is something you will never see the president do. Does anyone remember Nixon? One of Ford’s first acts in office was to pardon Nixon. You don’t think Biden would do the same, if it came to that (which I don’t think it will)?

    • Farleyagain

      Who cares if he goes to prison as long as he is no longer on the receiving end of that 2 am call?

      • Vigilant

        Kinda like saying “who cares if a serial rapist/killer goes to prison as long as he stops doing it?”

  • Vigilant

    I’m afraid I don’t share your assessment, Mr, Crystal.

    Joe Biden would be comic relief after a totally corrupt Obama administration. He’s no Rasputen, more like a court jester, but I’d rather have a male ingenue in charge than a mobster.

    Not that any of the scenarios is likely to play out. Fidelity to the Constitution was pronounced dead amongst Democrats when they voted against convicting Clinton for perjury. NO WAY will the 2/3 majority required to convict an impeached president be gained in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      Biden will do more damage because he is seen as a clown, he will laugh and smile and joke but that jocosity will be vengeful.

      • Vigilant

        Biden couldn’t POSSIBLY do more damage than Obama has already done.

        • Average_Joe56

          I disagree, Joe is stupid… on steroids….just sayin’. ;)

          • JFSEB

            Biden’s poor governance would result from the randomicity of his stupidity and incompetence, which cannot be as bad as Obama’s deliberate, efficient, and intelligent malevolence against the U.S.; a hatred he probably learned as a child at the Indonesian, Muslim Madrasa, and later perfected under the spiritual guidance of Reverend Wright..

          • Jana

            I think Biden would be more easily manipulated by his handlers, but would probably bungle even that up.

        • Ringgo1

          This is true, but Biteme will still manage to do some additional damage.

          • Bob666

            Biteme ?

      Maybe not now, but if the conservatives can get control of the Senate and keep the House in 2014…there is always a ray of hope that we can make a change.

    • JFSEB

      That’s right. Quail made a common spelling error and was labeled stupid by the press. Obama has made dozens of such errors that most you can’t even find on the internet anymore. Remember his speech made during his European victory tour? It was in a French-speaking European country, I believe it was Belgium, in which he said “I don’t speak Belgium.” He sounded as stupid to all of Europe as he would have sounded if he had said to Mexicans that he didn’t speak Mexican. He got a total pass on that and many other faux pas that would make Dan Quail laugh.

      • Diana Nelson

        The truth is, Quail was reading what the teacher had written on her chalkboard. So blame the teacher, ok?

        • http://www.facebook.com/CapitalistAtBirth Greg Murphy

          A fact that continues to be ignored to this day. Actually Dan is and was very intelligent.

        • Jeff

          That’s No. 3 in the Repug. Playbook after Cut Taxes and Deregulate Business. Blame the teachers.

          • Justsomeguy151

            When they are moronic Libtards traitors like you, the blame is well deserved.

      • Jana

        Obama and his corps man.

        Who has not made a mistake in spelling at least once in his life? Dan Quail got a bum deal as the saying goes.

        Thanks Diana Nelson for telling it like it is.

      • Don 2

        Yeah, but you got to love when Obama said while being interviewed by George Stephanopoulos, “my Muslim religion” and George had to jump in and correct Obama, “You mean your Christian religion.?” Of course we all know, everyone always forgets what religion they practice…..right!

        Then there’s my favorite, when Obama stated, “I have visited 57 states, and I think there’s one more to go.” But then, what ‘real’ American doesn’t forget how many states there are…..right!

      • Jeff

        It’s QUAYLE, you moron, and his idiocy went way beyond mis-spelling “potato.” He went to Latin America and said something about his Latin being stale. I’m sure you could do a google search of Quayle Bloopers and come up with dozens of examples.

      • Justsomeguy151

        In a speech the other day, Obumma uttered the immortal words “…our founding father, JANE Madison…”. LMAO!!! Pathetically sad thing is, he is one of the best and brightest of the Libtard party!!

        • JFSEB

          That tells you one of two things: a. he either knows nothing about history or b. he is not conscious of the words he reads. I suspect both. I don’t mind a person reading a speech, it usually results in a better presentation. However, he or she should at least have enough input in its writing that he knows and understands what he is reading.

  • Dave

    Ben, let me know when you get back from Fantasyland. There is no “there” there with Benghazi, the IRS is not of his doing (these liberal and conservative groups have no business being tax exempt in the first place) and that leaves us with the media scandal which is bad. But lets review… Ronald Reagan and George H Bush, negotiated with terrorists, sold them weapons and then used the money to pay for an illegal war in Central America. George W Bush uses 9/11 as a political tool to waste hundreds of thousands of lines and 3 trillion dollars in Iraq to make money for the oil firms and the defense industry. You may wish Obama to be put in jail for the perceived crimes you have in your head but compared to Criminals like Reagan and he Bushes… Obama s a saint.

    • Don 2

      Hey Dave,

      Is that all you got? How about getting some new material? Every time you post something, it’s Groundhog Day! Somebody tell Dave, Reagan and Bush have left the building.

      • Dave

        They left the building and never served any time in the “pokey” but typical… You miss the point.

        • Don 2

          You got a point?

    • Farleyagain

      So agree with you about previous administrations, but let’s be honest; refusing to provide accurate documentation of your birth and school years, abandoning your ambassador to terrorists, walking guns to drug cartels, AND targeting political opponents with the power of the US Government inside the US is a new low.

      However, the sudden flip flop by the MSM has me scratching my head. Their love affair with all things liberal could not end so quickly and easily as to bring them to turn on O like this. Makes me wonder what is really going on and how O so angered the owners of the MSM – a cabal to be sure – that they pulled the rug out. Was it refusing to invade or drone Syria? Inquiring minds want to know.

      • shoemama

        The targeting of the AP hit close to home. If Obama was willing to do that, he would double cross THEM, too. Besides, they considered AP one-of-them, and AP was now going to be reporting on those things that they all ignored before. The other MSM were now going to be losing even MORE market share. These are plenty of reasons to change their tune, in spite of ideology!

        • Farleyagain

          I think the AP phone records deal was a cover to make it look like they had a reason to turn on him. If he’d asked they would have provided the records. I think it has more to do with O’s refusal to get into more wars. The same people own the war machines and the MSM. For them, it’s money . . . and fewer people on earth.

    • speedle

      Dave, seriously, you must be a horrible judge of character if you truly believe what you said about Reagan and the Bushes compared with Obama. You are blinded by your own ideology.

      • Dave

        Maybe you were not around when Reagan lied to our faces about never negotiating with terrorists… But I was. Maybe you weren’t around when Bush Sr pardoned the two people in the Reagan administration that could put Bush in the Iran Contra meetings but I was.

        • speedle

          Yeah Dave, not only was I around during the Reagan years, I was also around for the Watergate years,and I vividly remember the enthusiastic fervor that the media had in going after Nixon for misdeeds that amount to parking tickets when compared with what the Obama gangsters have perpetrated.

          • Dave

            Sorry, i do not buy your story if you sweep Iran-Contra under the rug so cavalierly. It was a huge crime but conservatives at the time defended their messiah. It was disgusting. But then that is the hallmak of the Reagan years, one disgusting action after another, from taking us from the #1 creditor nation to the #1 debtor nation to national security failures in Lebanon and hopping back into bed with big oil.

          • speedle

            You like to talk about Iran/Contra. Why don’t you tell us what you think went on at that time, and what it was all about? I am not sure you even know.

        • Don 2

          I was around when Clinton lied to our faces on National television. So you would have also been around during Bill Clinton’s pardoning of 150 criminals, including Marc Rich who was pardoned for tax evasion, fraud, and trading with the enemy – Iran, during the hostage crises; and an additional 39 commutations.

    • Ringgo1

      Just another troll, tooting Obamaos line. Blah blah. Yawn. Predictable and so boring!

        Thank you for noticing, but it seems you are describing your own posts. I feel encouraged by your responses today. Thanks again. (“Root/Crustal”)

        • Bob666

          Well Rotgut,
          Glad your looking in the mirror. If spelling is all you have to work with, well that does not say much for you.

    • Frank Kahn

      The two Muslims in England only hacked 1 soldier to death in the name of Islam, so they are saints compared to the Boston bombers?

      They should be allowed to run free, because they didnt kill as many people as others did?

      The Boston bombers didnt kill as many as the terrorists that bombed Pan Am flight 103, which came down in Lockerbie, so they should not be prosecuted?

      Hitler did not kill as many of his countries citizens as Stalin, so he is a saint?

      Muslims have not killed as many U.S. citizens as our government has killed Muslims, so Muslim terrorists are saints?

      A woman that drowns her newborn baby is a still a saint because Kermit Gosnell killed hundreds of them?

      Tell me when one of these statements makes sense to you.

      To those of us that have morals, and a conscience, all of these people are evil, not saints, and that includes Obama. The liberals attempt to claim that he is a good man, just because Bush was worse, is not a rational position.

      Quoting, a proven liars words, “there is no there, there”, is not proof that nothing bad happened. It does not prove that nobody failed in their responsibilities, or attempted to downplay and then cover up what happened.

      It is obvious, to people with a brain, that something went extremely wrong in Benghazi, and it is also obvious that Obama and his administration lied about what happened. It is also, almost comically, clear that they attempted to blame it all on a movie that had no connection to it.

      Clinton was not impeached because he had sex in the Oval Office, he was impeached because he lied under oath (perjury). Nixon was not facing impeachment because he orchestrated the Watergate break-in, he was under investigation for lying and trying to cover it up. The following is a quote from the Articles of Impeachment against Nixon.

      “The means used to implement this course of conduct or plan included one or more of the following:

      making false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States;

      withholding relevant and material evidence or information from lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States;

      approving, condoning, acquiescing in, and counselling witnesses with respect to the giving of false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States and false or misleading testimony in duly instituted judicial and congressional proceedings;

      interfering or endeavouring to interfere with the conduct of investigations by the Department of Justice of the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the office of Watergate Special Prosecution Force, and Congressional Committees;

      approving, condoning, and acquiescing in, the surreptitious payment of substantial sums of money for the purpose of obtaining the silence or influencing the testimony of witnesses, potential witnesses or individuals who participated in such unlawful entry and other illegal activities;

      endeavouring to misuse the Central Intelligence Agency, an agency of the United States;

      disseminating information received from officers of the Department of Justice of the United States to subjects of investigations conducted by lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States, for the purpose of aiding and assisting such subjects in their attempts to avoid criminal liability;

      making or causing to be made false or misleading public statements for the purpose of deceiving the people of the United States into believing that a thorough and complete investigation had been conducted with respect to allegations of misconduct on the part of personnel of the executive branch of the United States and personnel of the Committee for the Re-election of the President, and that there was no involvement of such personnel in such misconduct: or

      endeavouring to cause prospective defendants, and individuals duly tried and convicted, to expect favoured treatment and consideration in return for their silence or false testimony, or rewarding individuals for their silence or false testimony.”

      Link to the source –
      http://watergate.info/impeachment/articles-of-impeachment

      This is not a list of convictions, it is a list of charges made against Nixon. If you read through them, you just might see an almost mirror image of the accusations being leveled against Obama.

      You might even equate Obama’s words, which you quoted, “there is no there, there”, to Nixon’s statement “I am not a crook”.

      You have no legitimate information that would support your contention that the IRS actions were not connected to Obama, so that statement is simply a logical fallacy. And, your assertion that “conservative groups” had no right to be tax exempt is a bigoted liberal saying that is both a lie and stupid, making it a stupid lie. I would also point out that including “liberal” in the statement is an attempt to twist the facts, it was conservatives that were targeted not liberals.

    • shoemama

      Who refused security to our Ambassador, even after he asked for more? Who made up a stupid story to explain the attack? WHO ORDERED THE MILITARY TO STAND DOWN???…… and this man you call a saint?????

  • agbjr

    I believe there is much more to Joe Biden than we know or the White House allows the media to report which in turn we see. His public persona is that of a harmless dolt so who better to use as Oval Office bag man? Biden’s gaffs may actually be part of a well-crafted play meant to throw the media and public off his trail. Senators who served and worked with him regard him as very competent; an incompetent and unintelligent man does not sit in the senate for thirty-five years. Biden warrants being watched and questioned.

    • Average_Joe56

      “an incompetent and unintelligent man does not sit in the senate for thirty-five years. ”

      They do if elected and re-elected by incompetent and unintelligent voters (which seems to occur all too often).

      It’s the “What’s in it for ME” crowd.

      “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”

      This quote is often attributed to Alexander Fraser Tytler, however the true origin of the quote is unknown….but, it is no less relevant.

      • agbjr

        My statement is not supportive of Biden it is rather admonition not to take him at face value.

        • Average_Joe56

          Actually, I knew that, and I agree. Just pointing out, that these idiots do keep getting elected…by uninformed voters, looking to line their pockets with other people’s money (public welfare).

          • Dick Gazinia

            Idiots in both parties keep being re-elected – Note Michelle Bachman and Senator Ted Cruz. Between them their IQs may total three digits. Dumb as dirt voters will elect anyone running from their party of choice and is willing to swill out what they want to hear. There was a time when voters were actually paying attention to the individuals they voted for and put integrity over political spin.

            You mean dumb people like Hillary Clinton, Bill “Do a Lewinsky” Clinton, Obama bin Laden, Pelosi, Boxer, Waters, Reid, Biden, and many others that have no intellect whatsoever and only wish to lead this country in the wrong direction? Those “people” I would agree with you. Here is what happened to a good teacher in a libturd run blue state.

            You should get off the Kool-Aid in favor of Liber-Tea.

            That would be “Fool-Aide” ( don’t insult the folks at Kool-Aid).

            Which is higher, your IQ or your shoe size? I am guessing that it will be close… either way……

            You mean like Barrrrack Nomama? Hillarious Clinton, Hairy Read? Between them there may be a two digit IQ…..
            Funny, how you started out with both parties and ended up blaming one party.. See, we can play that game too…nimrod….

            I suspect that my IQ is exponentially higher than yours.

            I never said that the Dems had no idiots in office, just that the GOP has our own crop of dullards.

            “I suspect that my IQ is exponentially higher than yours.”

            You are free to suspect anything you choose.

            “I never said that the Dems had no idiots in office, just that the GOP has our own crop of dullards.”

            I don’t recall saying that I was a member of either party…Democrat or Republican. I am neither. I am an individual.

            You’d be wrong, liar and hypocrite.

            The IQ’s of Bachman and Cruz – why?? Bbecause you don’t like their political beliefs i.e. standing up for the constitusion and the Bill of Rights. The type of country that by your post, you would like to live in – there are many of them – pick one and leave.

        Excellent words, AJ. We began to morph into a socialist democracy when the Constitution was amended to allow for popular vote of senators. It’s been downhill ever since.

    Knowing Crazy Uncle Joe, if Obama was impeached, Joe would pardon him, make O his Vice…resign and O becomes president again and Uncle Joe gets his job back as vice….Welcome to the revolving doors of DC…Welcome to Amerika!

      Maybe you should write comic books as well as read them!

  • jimmie smith

    All of this speculation will be a moot point, if one party takes control after the 2014 midterm election cycle. My hope is American voters will realize the benefit of checks and balance in our republic. Otherwise, more out of control government?

    Is Obama following a Trend that Bill Clinton did in the
    1990s to increase the threat of radical Jihad ?

    Obama Plans on winning War on Terror aligning with a enemy
    of the USA ?

    http://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/analysis/rubin-reports/obamas-head-in-the-sand-speech-about-terror/2013/05/26/

    Bill Clinton did the same thing in the 1990s
    empowering and emboldening the Radical Muslim terrorist groups , read this , http://www.newenglishreview.org/custpage.cfm/frm/31943/sec_id/31943

    And it says he did this with the benefit of the America´s elite media which
    consistently shielded the Clinton Administration from negative reporting , this
    same media is shielding the Obama administration in the same Foreign policy threats
    to National Security .

    What these
    stories seem to suggest is that the Republican Party has been POWERLESS in
    holding these Past and Present Administration Accountable for their Dereliction
    of duty regarding containment of threats to national Security and because of
    this Lots of People and The US Peoples Treasure has been lost !!!!!

      Obama & the Clinton Democrat Progressive Majority is Clinton Admin 2.0. The People sent Newt and Company to stop Clinton and drag him screaming back to the center Right. The Clinton Democrat Progressive majority, funded by G Soros, using Alinsky Rule strategy & tactics, have been enacting the fundamental transformation manifesto, the “intent” of that manifesto have never waivered or changed. the end justifies their means. Their fundamental transformation manifesto explains their actions and deeds.

  • Terry Bateman

    Obama is not going anywhere but history as the Democratic President that
    turned job losses into job gains and increased oil and gas drilling and production, solar and wind energy production (all of the above) to put the
    US firmly on the way to energy independence and worldwide dominion and
    power.

      What you’re looking for is in Manhattan, east side, around Thirtieth Street, big sign: Bellevue Hospital. They can help you.

      You must be in some alternative universe. NONE of what you posted is the case here.

      Job gains? Increased oil drilling? Pure fantasy land stuff, hop on your unicorn and ride away to anywhere but here!!

  • Farleyagain

    Biden is a fool, but not a traitor; he’d be a better President, has more experience, is fun, and he would be much more able to work with Congress (and they with him) on serious issues.

    • Txblackjack

      Not so fast. Biden is one of the Clinton Democrat Progressives. He is sworn to the fundamental transformation manifesto. Treason is not in their vocabulary. the end justifies their means.

      • Farleyagain

        Nevertheless, he would be better than the occupier in the Oval Office now. Clinton succeeded because of Newt and the Republican Congress. We have strong leaders there now, not in high positions, but they are definitely in there.

    It may be that Ben Crystal or Bob Livingston would do an article on what is Evil, our perception is muddled and muddy. It is not just in Politics, Business, Religion, Personal Lives, Medicine, Education , it takes over insidiously every facet of our being. What we perceive as evil may not be evil in itself and what we think as good may not be good.

    • Justsomeguy151

      Sounds like a bunch of Libtard mumbo jumbo. There is no gray area.

  • Txblackjack

    I strongly disagree, The Clinton Democrat Progressive Majority are responsible for Obama & their radical, treasonous fundamental transformation Communist manifesto. We, the People must be patient and demand that a outside Special Prosecutor, not some K Street shyster pettifogger be appointed. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. The volumes of evidences are being gathered and anyone who broke our laws, will have their day in court and let the evidence decide their fate. The Rule of Law must prevail and prove that NO ONE is above the law. We, the People must keep Obama & the Democrat Progressive majority on the DEFENSE and hold them responsible for actions and deeds.

    Big business runs our agenda now. Greed, Death, Pills, Oil, War is all that seems to run our country. It won’t matter unless you put a righteous person in there that actually walks with the prince of peace in his heart. The kingdom is near.

    Floyd Brown, in his prescient exposé Obama’s Enemies List, shouted from the highest mountain, warning of a rogue Obama administration and its mammoth enemies list; but the Establishment refused to listen. Now that the IRS scandal and attack on the Press has proven him right, the mainstream media is playing catch up.

    As long as it was just those so-called “extremist” Tea Party, pro-life, and Christian groups that were being attacked, no one seemed to care. But now that we know the Obama administration is an “equal opportunity” attacker, going after the Associated Press, Fox News, local reporters, Romney donors, Benghazi whistleblowers, etc., etc. (with more Obama enemies sure to surface), the country now seems to be taking notice.

    But this is only the surface of how the Obama enemies list works. Everything, and I mean everything, is geared towards an enemies list, which is predicated on having an extensive surveillance state.

    The communist Saul Alinsky, Barack Hussein Obama’s favorite community organizer, famously said, “The issue is never the issue.” Put a little more plainly: “Deception is our Modus Operandi.” Case in point: ObamaCare.

    Presumably, ObamaCare is about access to healthcare. But doctors are dropping out of the healthcare system in droves, healthcare is already being rationed, and healthcare costs are skyrocketing as much asfour hundred percent.

    The issue is never the issue. ObamaCare is not about access to healthcare; it’s about an elaborate system to support an enemies list.

    Enter the IRS, now in charge of ObamaCare.

    In order for the IRS to supposedly determine whether Americans are eligible for government subsidies to pay for mandated health insurance, they must collect a horrendous amount of information on every single American.

    The IRS is creating a database so vast that it makes George Orwell’s dystopian society in the book 1984 look like amateur hour.

    Called the Federal Data Services Hub, it will combine the IRS’s income and employment database with the Social Security, Homeland Security, Department of Justice, and Health and Human Services databases.

    Combined with the proposed Immigration Bill creating a national ID system, this will be the mother of all databases—the mother of a complete and total surveillance state.

    Does America really believe that the same woman behind the targeting of conservatives at the IRS, former commissioner of tax exempt and government entities Sarah Hall Ingram, now promoted to the head of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, was a coincidence?

    Har har Ben. It’s funny, but it’s NOT!! Either way, WELL SAID…… :)

  • wandamurline

    Then we can have Biden tested by a psychiatrist and find him incapable of running the country, that wouldn’t take much….since Obama doesn’t run it either….all Obama does is speeches and campaigning, golfing, and partying vacations…the one running things is Valerie Jarrett….she’s actually the president and heck, she has not even been elected or on the ballot. At least Boehner would be the VP and that would be ever changing for America….if Boehner can find his gonads.

  • ONTIME

    Were the Faker in the WH go to jail and the hoax being perpetuated to completely unravel, the idea that Curley Joe Biden would have any administrative authority would be slim. The deemers would be devastated were they to loose the battle to continue to shove socialism as they see it down our throats, the conservatives would become the voice of reason and the RINO element would have no one to turn to but that doesn’t mean they would not try and sabotage decent law…..It would be a new dawning in America if WTP can remove this blight on our nations honor and kill the cancer that has made it ill for so long….

  • Billie Jacobs

    The problem with impeaching Obama is that Biden would then become president with the power to pardon Obama. If Biden himself is also impeached, then he would be replaced by the Secretary of State, John Kerry!!!!! So, you see, WE’RE SCREWED NO MATTER WHAT WE DO; WE CAN’T WIN FOR LOSING!!!!!!
