    Hey

  • Pamela Smith

    All of these networks above, were threatened by the Obama Administration, and so anything they say and do is being controlled by the Obama! It’s no wonder they cower to him, he’s being accused of murdering people,(not by his own hand of course, but by his RATS!!) They threatened thier families, etc;AND yes, Bill & Hillary Clinton knew that Obama was an illegal, but he threatened Chelsie’s life. What was thier recourse then? So many are being taken in by these news media’s and they don’t even know it!
