    Good thing the Texas kid didn't kill anyone besides himself. Too bad he didn't get the help he needed.

    Thank God the UFO/National Security issue is gaining the attention it needs and deserves. The big story isn't the aliens, but the lies we've been told for so long. I have to wonder what will be the most important revelation that comes form all of this. One thing is certain: our world is undergoing exponentially rapid change. We're just going to have to learn to get along with the new neighbors.

    This president views Fox News just like he views the American People that don't agree with his agenda; the enemy that is just fit to supply the funds to take care of his citizens that support his progressive agenda.

    I'm embarrassed that the POTUS would make such a statement in public. Just shows how he feels about freedom of the press. Very un-American.

      His statement is actually very American, because in America you are still able to state your opinions openly. He has as much right to critize Fixed News as anyone.
