The United States vs. Santa Claus

The Untold Story of the Actual War on Christmas

The United States vs. Santa Claus

'Twas right before Christmas

And in the White House

A dread plan was hatched

To make Santa a louse

Joe Biden assisted, and Mike Bloomberg too

And before we all knew it, old Saint Nick was through.

The comedic minds behind TheBlaze TV’s hit show, The B.S. of A. with Brian Sack bring you their hilarious vision of Christmas Future—or possibly sooner.

What happens when the Scrooge-iest Washington politicians take on the jolliest soul of all time? Can a scandal-plagued administration distract the American public by bringing Santa to his knees? Can a bumbling bureaucracy destroy the reputation of the most popular man in the Northern Hemisphere? Spoiler alert: YES! And faster than you can say ho-ho-ho!

This is the sad story of the real war on Christmas—and how the NSA, IRS, OSHA and every other acronym in Washington came gunning for the man in red with everything they’ve got: two-thousand page reports on the environmental impact of reindeer farts...unionized elves...suspicious audits...character assassination...and all the other cruel and unusual tactics of an out-of-control government.

Yes Virginia, there was a Santa Claus. This is his story.
