Greater Mideast:
Trigger for War or New Development Era

Dec. 1—With each passing day, the danger of escalation to global thermonuclear war is growing, starting from the powder-keg of Southwest Asia.

  • Not Fit for Public Office:
    Defeat Susan Rice for Her Genocide in Africa

    In addition to Rice's lying about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, her mass-murderous activities in Africa, going back 20 years, render her grossly unqualified to hold any high office, including that of Secretary of State.
