Check out one facet of BARACK OBAMA’s “inner circle” — most of the women shown here represent a hidden inner circle that has played important roles in getting him elected. The Nation of Islam is not just another neighborhood group. Is the Nation of Islam the next one slated to go under the bus?
THE PHOTOGRAPH BELOW UNDERSCORES the virtually ignored role that Louis Farrakhan and his wife, Mother Khadijah Farrakhan, have played in the POLITICAL RISE of Barack and Michelle Obama.

[ALSO OF NOTE: Fruit of Islam guards would be present to protect Khadijah Farrakhan.]
Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Holds 33rd Annual Conference In Chicago
CAPTION: Picture 11, Rev. Willie T. Barrow, chairman emerita, Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, enjoys the Women’s Luncheon with Michelle Obama, wife of U.S. Senate candidate Barack Obama of Illinois and executive director of community affairs, University of Chicago Hospital, Shoshana Johnson, the nation’s first Black female POW and former Iraqi captive, and Mrs. Jamell Meeks, wife of the Rev. James Meeks, vice president, Rainbow/PUSH, and Rev. Dr. Barbara King, Mother Khadijah Farrakhan, wife of Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan, and Judge Arnette Hubbard.;
SEE OUR WILLIE BARROW STORY for the video of Louis Farrakhan railing against Jews. Similar to Willie Barrow, Michelle “For the First Time in My Lifetime I am Proud of My Country” Obama approves the following message:
There was a time when Michelle Obama did not have a second thought about posing for a picture with the wife of an infamous anti-Semitic, black separationist leader. Is this the real Michelle?
Most Americans would concede that a First Lady, regardless of political party, should not be hanging with the wife of Louis Farrakhan or the wife of David Duke. Is there room for associating with known racists, anti-Semites and homophobes?
Are we ready for a First Lady like Michelle Obama, who reportedly has shared the stage with Nation of Islam’s LOUIS FARRAKHAN and condemened white folks?
We have until August to get the answers to these questions.
OF NOTE: Larry Johnson has not SEEN the tape in question. Larry Johnson, however, has FIVE solid sources that this tape exists.
We also have the rampant speculation today on television and radio that the tape will come out tomorrow.
