Is Barack Obama Planning to Invade Illinois?

By John Lillpop

Vice-president elect Joe Biden tried to warn America of the dangers that would inevitably accompany an Obama administration into power. 

Barack Obama Speaking in Seattle, Washington on October 20, the man who believes that President Franklin D. Roosevelt used HDTV, the Internet, and a cell phone to assuage national angst over bad economic times in 1929, said, in part, the following:

Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking." (1)

Since Biden issued this famous red alert, political pundits from all ideological spectrums have speculated that the Biden prophecy would be fulfilled by an invasion of Pakistan. 

Others have guessed that Obama will be driven to attack Iran in order to remove the nuclear tentacles sprouted by Iran`s whacked out President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. 

As it turns out, the greatest threat to Obama and his Marxist comrades in the U.S. Congress may not be international after all.

In fact, the greatest threat to domestic tranquillity and order is probably embodied in the criminal mind of Governor Rod Blagojevich, the renegade governor of Illinois who violated the cardinal rule of Democrat party ethics by getting caught while trying to sell a political office, namely the Senate seat once (but not often) occupied by Barack Obama.

Mind you, Blago`s sin was NOT selling, or trying to sell, a Senate seat. His crime was in getting caught and being insufficiently clever to cover up his felony.

Because of Blagojevich`s incompetence, the Democrat party is now being torn apart from stem to stern by those who favor seating Blago`s tainted appointment, Roland Burris, to the U.S. Senate, versus those who would like to stone Burris and Blagojevich to death simultaneously, in a custom made, double occupancy ditch inside the cloakroom of the U.S. Senate in Washington, D.C. 

As for President-elect Obama, unsubstantiated reports indicate that the soon-to-be president has tentatively decided to send the U.S. Marines into Springfield, Illinois, Capital City of the state, for the purpose of forcibly removing Blagojevich from office.

Using military force against an American city is most probably not authorized by the Constitution to the president or any other official. 

Nevertheless, with dingbats like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in charge of Congress, Obama can probably do damn near whatever he wants, when he wants!
