    Egypt is pro-Russian thanks to Russia’s mole Obama promoting the Muslim Brotherhood led uprising there. I really wonder, if the Russians are plotting to use the Obamas to drain what’s left of what was great of the USA.

    Either if it’s Trump or Hillary next month, the Obamas are plotting a comeback with Michelle running for Senate of Illinois and then running to challenge either Trump or Hillary. That’s not a good sign.
