It has been painfully obvious from the beginning that in 1968, we were all victim of a huge hoax; the hoax being that Sirhan Bishara Sirhan murdered presidential candidate Robert Francis Kennedy, brother to the slain President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
In July of last year, in my finale of the three-part series on Barack Obama, I made a few predictions about the presidential race. One of those predictions upset many of my friends. It was the one where I said that Barack Obama will be president of the United States of America, unless a couple things happen: one of which was “an assassination”. I have never retracted this. In fact I wrote later in the year that the Secret Service needed to step up their detail, and protect this man at the highest level ever afforded a presidential candidate. I also berated Barack (slightly) for his cavalier attitude towards the fears of many many black people. I wasn’t kidding. I have met him on three different occasions and I didn’t like what I saw as the security arrangements around him.
