I am not sure about this article, but after spending lots of time in Brazil, I heard about Santeria.
I also know a Cuban businessman in the USA who is considered a priest of this religion and believe me, he is a smooth operating snake.
He doesn't know that I happen to know all about his little secret.
Witchcraft in the White House
The Obama White House is abuzz with talk of witchcraft by first grandmother, 72-year-old Marian Robinson, who lives in the White House residence. A close friend of Michelle Obama says the president is furious at his mother-in-law after learning that she was practicing Santeria, an African spirit cult, in the White House.
"The president is quite upset about this on two different levels. First, he is a committed Christian, no matter what his critics say about Reverend Wright. He is adamant that Sasha and Malia be raised with Christian influences. He does not want them to be involved with African voodoo. And secondly, he is worried about the political fallout if his enemies get wind of this. Rev. Wright was bad enough, but this would be political suicide," a close friend of Michelle’s confided.
Religion took center stage during the campaign last year when videos showed the Rev. Jeremiah Wright shouting "God damn America." Obama was forced to distance himself from the since-retired pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, where he worshiped for 20 years. Many people were shocked by the videos and questioned Obama’s fitness to be president. Since taking office, Obama has avoided worshiping in public and now prefers the chapel at the presidential retreat at Camp David.
This is how it happened. Marian Robinson became increasingly frustrated as her husband, Fraser Robinson, was hobbled by multiple sclerosis in the late 1980s. The family pastor prayed with her and counseled her, but "she turned to Santeria in a desperate hope," Michelle’s friend said. "Michelle put her foot down when she heard that her mother took her dad to ceremonies where they did spells and trances, and sacrificed animals, chickens and goats I think. But Marian was desperate and kept going anyway, even when her husband was to sick to go with her. I don’t think the president knew anything about this earlier because it was before they met. Michelle and Craig (her brother) wanted to close the book on this and never talked about it again after their father died in 1991."
The first grandma appears to be worried about her health now, even though doctors pronounce her in good shape. "Marian invited an old friend from Chicago to visit her at the White House, and she performed a Santeria
ceremony in the residence. When Michelle saw this woman, a voodoo priestess she recognized her from when her father was sick, she had a fit. When she told the president about it, he blew up and said, ‘No voodoo in the White House. Absolutely. I don’t care what you call it.’ As far as I know, it only happened once," the friend said.
The president was "totally in favor" when his mother-in-law moved into the White House as a live-in babysitter for 11-year-old Malia and 8-year-old Sasha. Obama reportedly told Michelle that her mother will have to go back to Chicago if she does not "stop this witchcraft mumbo-jumbo immediately" and ordered the Secret Service to not allow Marian’s friend to return to the White House.

OBAMA'S MAMMY DOIN' WHITEHOUSE WITCHCRAFT
Barack Hussein Obama knows that granny Marian, his mammy-in-law is
openly practicing Santeria in the White House. 72-year-old Mizzie
Robinson, who lives in the White House and looks after Sasha and
Malia, has been practicing Afro-Hispanic Witchcraft since the 1980's.
She does Santeria Ceremonies using spells and trances, and sacrificed
animals, chickens and goats," a close friend reports. The friend says
Robinson is now afraid for her Health Care Plan and recently invited
an old friend she practices Santeria with to the White House.
Balack Obama "is upset about this on two different levels. First, he
is pretending to be a Christian,
no matter what his critics say about
Rev. 'Goddamn' Wright. He does not want Sasha and Malia to get caught
doing Africoon voodoo. And secondly, he is worried about the political
fallout if the Public gets wind of this primitive idiocy. Rev. Wright
was bad enough, but this is political suicide," a close friend of
Balack told Shelly that her mammy will be expelled to Chicago if she
does not "stop the Witchcraft Mumbo-Jumbo shit" and ordered the Secret
Service to keep mammy's hoodoo voodoo zombies, hexes and haint's away
from the White House.
He's keeping his privileged Government Healthcare Coverage.
