Dark Clouds: Obama Assassination Threats Weigh On Voters





Denver, CO -- Contrary to the widespread expectation that the nomination of Barack Obama will intensify black-brown tensions, many of the 12 Latinos gathered for a focus group discussion here on Monday waxed poetic at the thought of America electing Obama to the presidency.

"The most exciting thing is that for the first time in my lifetime I will see a black President," declared Adrian Romero, a 35-year-old video editor who did not vote in 2004.

"What he brings to the table is that he transcends being black," added Pamela Gamarra, a 34-year-old senior data analyst in Boulder said.

But, just as the enthusiasm for Obama gained strength, Alex Moreno, a 36-year-old who runs his own window washing business, raised an issue that has emerged repeatedly in such groups by whites, blacks, Hispanics, yuppies and blue-collar workers:

"I am concerned about a black President being assassinated, and having the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles following us everywhere."

Peter Hart, the Democratic pollster overseeing this focus group, sponsored by the Annenberg Public Policy Center, said afterward that the assassination issue has been raised in every presidential focus group he has seen this year.

Moreno's question brought the gathering to a brief standstill as Obama supporters, the few McCain backers, and those who are undecided nodded in agreement.

After Moreno raised the assassination issue, the tone of Obama supporters became less optimistic, and the tone of McCain backers became more harshly critical of Obama's candidacy.

Dwayne Chavez, a 44-year-old former soldier who works as a blood bank technician, is a Republican who voted for Bush in 2004. Now, he is leaning strongly toward Obama, but in the aftermath of Moreno's remark, Chavez said:

"I don't think America is ready to have that [racial] ceiling broken."

Mike Montoya, a 51-year-old online book salesman, firmly committed to McCain and the GOP, interjected with a complaint that the Obama campaign has claimed racism "every time there is something critical said about him... If he is going to be President, he has to put his blackness behind him."

In contrast to similar gatherings of white voters at which sharp resentment of undocumented immigrants often surfaces, these Hispanic voters generally had a very different view.

Montoya, the McCain supporter, said, "There are some people [in this country] who won't work for the minimum wage, and we need those [undocumented] workers."

Pamela Hendricks, 44, who works in family liaison for the public school system, noted that the undocumented "are paying taxes, even if they are paying on an illegal Social Security number."

McCain's moderate stand appeared to have done him some good among Latinos at the gathering here, a number of whom were, however, angry at the anti-immigrant views of many Republican House and Senate members.

Romero, who intends to vote for Obama, said he was impressed with McCain because he "did acknowledge in one of his ads that immigrants are the backbone of the workforce of this country."

Chavez said, "I don't think people should be penalized for coming in to work. People who hire illegals should be punished, not people who are looking for work." He added that Republican animosity to immigrants "has made it hard for me as a person with brown skin. There are a lot of assumptions made about me."

The one angry view on the illegal immigration issue was voiced by John Candelaria, 68, retired from the Air Force, and a solid anti-tax Republican:

"I'm totally, completely against the illegals coming across... I'm a victim of the illegals. In my area there have been seven foreclosures [of homes purchased by undocumented immigrants] who bailed out and went home. Now the prices of all the homes went down, and I can't get refinancing."

All but one of the participants in the focus group appeared to be committed to either Obama (Cool or McCain (3), with the sole undecided voter sounding as if she would back McCain.

If their votes turn out to be 8-4 in favor of Obama, it would be a significant Democratic gain over 2004, when George W. Bush won five of the votes of the members of this group, John Kerry six, and a single participant did not vote that year.

People should be dissuaded from voting Obama because of his Bilderberg/CFR connections like they did with David Duke and his KKK connections.

The race card aint the straight flush it used to be.   Lips sealed

That would mean something if he actually did have any CFR connections, or if the CFR was actually as nefarious as you imagine it to be.

His wife is a member and everyone knows the Rockefellers started the whole organization and that the Rockefellers are Globalists.

Truth is you non-white male liberal types can always excuse anything that a non-white male liberals do.

I'll bet you liberals can even overlook Obama's Communist-mentor connections in his past as well.

If a white guy had a wife who was in the KKK his political career would be over, but have a mullato-American, actual dictionary term, be part of a Globalist organization and liberals totally ignore it.

Congratulations liberals you are being suckered 100% by the Globalist-Illuminati.

The Illuminatiís 25 Tenets:

1) Men are inclined to evil rather than good.

2) Preach Liberalism.

3) Use ideals of freedom to bring about class wars.

4) Any and all means necessary should be used to reach their goals as they are justified.

5) Believe their rights lie in force.

6) The power of their resources must remain invisible until the very moment that they have gained the strength so that no group or force can undermine it.

7) Advocates a mob psychology to obtain control of the masses

8 ) Promotes the use of alcohol, drugs, moral corruption, and all forms of vice to systematically corrupt the youth of the nation.

9) Seize citizensí private property by any means necessary.

10) The use of slogans such as equity, liberty, and fraternity are used on the masses as psychological warfare.

11) War should be directed so that the nations on both sides are placed further in debt and peace conferences are designed so that neither combatant retain territory rights.

12) Members must use their wealth to have candidates chosen to public office who would be obedient to their demands, and would be used as pawns in the game by the men behind the scenes. The advisors will have been bred, reared, and trained from childhood to rule the affairs of the world.

13) Control the press, and hence most of the information the public receives.

14) Agents and provocateurs will come forward after creating traumatic situations, and appear to be the saviors of the masses, when they are actually interested in just the opposite, the reduction of the population.

15) Create industrial depression and financial panic, unemployment, hunger, shortage of food, use these events to control the masses and mobs. and use them to wipe out those who stand in the way.

16) Infiltrate Freemasonry which is to be used to conceal and further objectives.

17) Expound the value of systematic deception, use high sounding slogans and phrases, advocate lavish sounding promises to the masses even though they canít be kept.

18) The art of street fighting is necessary to bring the population into subjection.

19) Use agents as provocateurs and advisers behind the scenes, and after wars use secret diplomacy talks to gain control.

20) Establish huge monopolies towards world government control.

21) Use high taxes and unfair competition to bring about economic ruin by controlling raw materials, organized agitation among the workers, and subsidizing competitors.

22) Build up armaments with police and soldiers who can protect and further Illuminati interests.

23) Members and leaders of the one world government will be appointed by the director of the Illuminati.

24) Infiltrate into all classes and levels of society and government for the purpose of teaching the youth in the schools theories and principles known to be false.

25) Create and use national and international laws to destroy civilization.

The KKK is a very real racist organization,  This differs from the CFR, which is simply a Washington think tank that conservatives like to fantasize about.   Roll Eyes
