It wasn’t too long ago that the White House was embattled in several scandals, including the IRS scandal targeting Tea Party and other conservative groups. President Obama decided to change the narrative as every president drowning in scandal has done before him, bomb someone. But new emails leaked by the Ways and Means to the Wall Street Journal, are damning to Lois Lerner, and since Washington bureaucrats do not take such huge undertakings on their own, the administration.

If you have been watching Rand Paul amidst the recent scandals, then you might be able to tell that he sees the same thing that I see. Now is the time to purge the Republican Party, destroy the progressive ideology and restore our Republic, all in one swift move.
