Likely 2016 GOP Presidential Candidate: To Know Obama, Read 'Mein Kampf'
In an interview with Newsmax host J.D.

Failed GOP Candidate to Obama: Step Down or Face an 'Armed Rebellion'
The word “treason” gets thrown around a lot these days, but in this case the shoe absolutely fits.

The House Select Committee on Intelligence, following almost a two-year intense investigation, unanimously determined there is no basis for what has become known as the Benghazi Scandal.
