The Obama administration now has three intensifying scandals on its hands, a hat trick of corruption composed of the Benghazi cover-up, the administration’s unjustified surveillance of the Associated Press and Fox News, and of course the outrageous abuse of IRS power for partisan purposes. In fact, so many tyrannical abuses are coming to light that the big three are likely only the tip of the iceberg.

In any other era of American history, just one of these scandals could have toppled a presidency. Now such events are symptomatic of an ideologically driven administration creating a thriving culture of corruption, aided by a sympathetic media that often resembles a publicly held arm of the White House communications office. We are living in very dangerous times.
