    This is the first time I’ve heard, or seen Ben and I must say, I’m impressed. A fresh face and a new style of humor to face an impending crisis in our country, the dumbing down of America. Hope I see him again, soon.

  • Karolyn

    They’re getting worse every week, Ben. Maybe you should stick to your day job!

    • upayu

      The way things are going perhaps Karolyn should stick with looking for a job.

    • Wild Bill

      I have a better idea,why don’t you GET a real job and stop being a such a troll.

      PS Your current occupation as a hooker at SEIU conventions is not real work.

        Oh, my aren’t WE showing our intellect!

        • Carl_Irving

          I laugh at both…people are so polarized… it would seem the media and government have succeeded in dividing the country…well done now we can watch from the sidelines as the whole thing melts down and the ruling elite take even more power from the American people as they argue over such petty things…

          • Bruce D.

            George Soros, GE, and Wall Street, have too cozy a relationship with Obama and are thieving manipulators so I will agree with you there.

    • Jay

      Karolyn, been eating sour grapes again?

    • Allan Halbert


      Could you explain the difference between this and a typical Jon Stewart segment, other than the viewpoint is from the left? We all understand each side finds no humor in the other. What is the value of your response?

          Must you really sound like a moron by repeating yourself? 하나님 하고 나라를 위해서! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • Cathy

      If you hate this so much, why do you watch it?

    • http://naver samurai

      There’s nothing wrong with what Ben said, considering it sounds more truthful then anything Obama bin Laden has been putting out recently. Good job Ben! Keep up the good fight, fellow patriot! 하나님 하고 나라를 위해서! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • Macawma

      I heartily disagree, Karolyn. I find it refreshingly funny to laugh instead of cry about the sorry state of affairs in this country. Well done, Ben!

    • (WIA) Wild Indian in Action

      Karolyn, Go back to your regular corner Job , your full time night job, that is !

    • Dean

      The new Congress needs to invite Ben to spend the day doing his act!

  • http://com i41

    Ben, you need to take this all over the country and also get a 2 hour TV show to educate the brain dead soros socialists dumbocraps. Or it the marxist/communist pee diddlers with no sense!

  • J.M.R.

    well done ben keep it up

  • Iris

    It was OK, still I like your articles which are brilliant analysis and well written. I just don’t see you as a comedian. Sorry.

    • bob wire

      Oh ! I did.

      • Jay

        Another one of your self analysis and projection, bob wire?

        • http://?? Joe H.

          No Jay, he was admiring himself in the mirror!!!

          • Jay

            No doubt it shattered!

  • Grandpop

    Funny, and enlightening, I don’t like Rep Whiner er Viener of NY, he reminds me of Grayson formerly of Florida. More waivers to “get out” of the hellth kare, if it ain’t good for the libs, then that means “it ain’t good for all AT all”…….

  • Ron

    I like you Ben. I think I might even listen to you again if you broadcast again and again and again! Keep it up!

  • Miracle Destiny

    Very good and funny Ben. It is great to make fun of the idiots and their supporters who are trying to ruin our country.

  • Tunaman

    Ben, you are on the right track! You can’t do anything about the brain dead coolaid drinkers! I have a 50% rule; almost half of the people in this country are MORONS1 How do you think obummer got in?

  • Andy

    I liked that Obamacare logo you used; does it come as a bumper or back window sticker?

  • BDOG


  • Scott

    Great sign-off!

  • Joyce from Loris

    I’m liking these little shots more and more. Great job, Ben, keep up the good work!

  • CC Rider

    Way to go, Ben.

    First time I known of you Ben. I like your humor on reality. We all have to laugh to keep from crying. It is hard to even dream all this financial boondoggle and political ” stuff ” is going on.

  • Rosebud

    Ben, I like your style…

  • Reconranger

    Great stuff. Ben. You are a lot funnier than Bill Mahr. Rep. Weiner reminds me of the dachsunds my family raised when I was a kid. Long pointed noses, big floppy ears. skinny necks and annoyingly yippy voices.

  • Jeanne

    It’s nice to see some “fair & balanced” political humor! SOMEBODY needs to balance out the so-called “humor” coming from the left-wing comedians such as Bill Maher, the Saturday Night Live gang, Kathy Griffin, etc.

    • Jay

      Absolutely Jeanne, finally someone with some smarts and integrity! Bill Maher is a putz!!!

      • Eddie47d

        I would say Kathy Griffin and Ben Crystal are both UN-balanced.Crap on either is just that!

        • http://naver samurai

          That’s OK edduh, but we all know that you’re the one unbalanced here. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        • http://?? Joe H.

          This from eddie, the one that can’t chew gum and walk at the same time without losing his balance!!!

          • DaveH

            I don’t think that’s in Eddie’s job description. Work rules, you know.

  • http://aol watchout time..

    is the pres, really that stupid ? ithink your missing his plan.we used to pay for alot for spys to hunt down commies in the all you have to do go to the the dudes white shack and they either work there or hang out there,just got to be a card carrying commie and u to can just walk in… now they don,t even try to hide it WOW whats next. if it.s faided in every country it,s been tryed in ?? unless you voted in like a Y.KIM[N.Kor.]or maybe a CHAVEZ[VENAwhatever]ya thats it, voted in HA HA. GOD please have mercy on us…..

  • Jay

    Ben, always educational and very entertaining! Keep it up, we support you 100%, and ignore the commie atheists! Just between you and me, deep down, I think they admire you!!!

    • DaveH

      Yeah, let’s burn those non-believers at the stake. How brazen of them to not believe in something that they can’t sense in any way.
      I’m not sure which nauseates me more, Liberals or Religious Bigots. Okay, Liberals win, but not by much.

      • Jay

        Who says they can’t sense in any way?

      • Jay

        DaveH, take it easy, it was an off- the- cuff comment, I was not implying religious superiority. I can understand your offence. I apologize!

      • http://naver samurai

        One of the roles in communism is atheism. It’s a historical fact and cannot be disputed. I respect your beliefs and am not pushing mine on you, but where did he say that all atheists are going to hades or that they are infidels (Like the muslims would do.)? Just a thought. Jay you shouldn’t have to apologize for exercising your God given 1st Amendment rights. 하나님 하고 나라를 위해서! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • S.L.Johnson

    Usually a big supporter of you, Ben, but I think this time the only thing funny were the canned laughs. Haha! Eh? Anyone? *crickets*
    Keep up the good work, though. I love these weekly commentaries.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      I guess this one thinks he’s ARTIE Johnson!!!

  • WayneT
  • http://?? Joe H.

    Hey Ben,
    Cool picture of that Nobummer lookalike!!! I mean that couldn’t be thepresident, could it??? Guess from now on I’ll have to call him presidentr rope a dope!!!

  • Phil B

    Not sure this comment is keeping with the trend here but, great job Ben, thanks for the humor.

  • Ivan

    The Libertarians gain ground each time that the Lamestream media attack. What do they show? Weiner and Frank on the attack. Is it a coincidence? They are ther real meat of the ultra left. Go get them Bill. Thanks for helping us laugh at what is the most signifigant threat to our freedom in my lifetime.
