October Surprise

Boy, I tell you folks, the hits just keep on coming, on this beautiful and groovy Saturday morning. Here is the latest release from Hypocrisy Records, take a look at this.

A Boston Housing Authority director says Barack Obama’s aunt, a Kenyan woman who has lived in public housing for five years, is an “exemplary resident” and only recently did anyone know of her connection to the presidential contender.

Obama’s campaign spokesman Reid Cherlin confirmed to the Herald yesterday that Zeituni Onyango, 56, who lives on Flaherty Way in South Boston, is Obama’s aunt on his father’s side.

Onyango, a Kenyan native, is believed to be the “Aunti Zeituni” in Obama’s memoir, “Dreams From My Father.”

But that's just the tip of it. It seems she is not here in this country, legally.

Barack Obama's aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.

Zeituni Onyango, 56, referred to as "Aunti Zeituni" in Obama's memoir, was instructed to leave the United States by a U.S. immigration judge who denied her asylum request, a person familiar with the matter told the AP late Friday. This person spoke on condition of anonymity because no one was authorized to discuss Onyango's case.

And if you think that's all that is illegal about this situation, let's have a look at this from the AP.

According to Federal Election Commission documents filed by the Obama campaign, Onyango has contributed $260 to Obama over a period of time. Under federal election law, only U.S. citizens or green-card holders are legally permitted to give money to campaigns. Onyango, who listed her employer as the Boston Housing Authority, gave in small increments to the Obama campaign. Her latest contribution was $5 on Sept. 19.

Let's review:

Obama has an aunt living in squalor in a federal housing unit, she lives here illegally, and she illegally donates money to a US Presidential campaign. That pretty much sums it up doesn't it? He runs for President, wanting to take hard working people's money to "spread the wealth around", and wants to use our money to help his own flesh and blood. That's compassion for you, that's class for you. That's a socialist, for you.

Of course, Obama will say this is just another diversion created by the GOP smear machine. It's a diversion alright, but it's called diverting a campaign donation from a higher income source, through a lower income source, to make it look like average individuals are making up the lion's share of campaign cash collected.

Well fellow blogosphere inhabitants, you have your October Surprise. Run well with it, the finish line is in sight.

I don't really hold Obama accountable for his poor aunt. Her story is important only in the fact that it illustrates how little discussion we've given to illegal immigration during this election cycle.

Yes, they did it-- both of them. They succeeded in keeping it off the table. Now it'll never be fixed.

As to her donations, SSDD. We would probably not be shocked to find millions have come into the Obama donation black hole from illegals both here and abroad.

Only to the degree that he has money to help her and obviously hasn't. Instead, he wants us to pay for her existence. If she had no one in her family that has the means and the capabilities to care for her, fine. I have my own relatives I help, so they do not have to depend on the government.

It's not the aunt, it's Obama's hypocrisy and the fact that someone used her to launder donations illegally.

Like AC, I need to remain mum about Obama's auntie. My aunt is living illegally in Kenya and has been drawing welfare there for years.

All kidding aside, if Obama was as patriotic as he implies, if he truly loved America, he'd move to Kenya. He would not have to concern himself with tearing down our country before rebuilding it in his own image; in Kenya, he could really make a difference.

Well I do hold him accountable. He has portrayed himself as a man of virue and integrity, yet he accepts donations from an illegal alien (#1 no-no) and then he doesn't help her. (2nd no-no) He is basically running his campaign to help others just like her. I wish this would take him down a peg but it seems he is unreachable when it comes to his character.

Shame, shame, Mustang.....I'm storing this in my file, to bring out when needed! BWAAAAAHHHHAAAAA! I love doin that evil laugh thing! :-)

Mustang said...

That's okay, Jennifer. I'm keeping a file on you, too. I have Google Earth, you know. I have several frames of you doing a ducky dance.

Indiana Vito said he'd pay good money for those pictures. Really good money. What Vito doesn't understand is that you're my buddy, so they aren't for sale. Well, for now anyway.

Semper Fi

Well Jennifer, you've done it now. His files are more extensive than J Edgar Hoover's were in his days with the FBI. Kiss that career in politics goodbye, because whatever he gets on you, he will hold over your head forever.

I thought about running for township trustee once. The next thing I knew two guys in suits and sunglasses were at my front door with some photos from many years ago, of a drunken soiree in Tijuana (that Mustang set up for that very purpose).

He's ruthless, I tell you.


Jennifer said...

LMAO Mustang.....Darnit, now I have to make sure I stay on your good side. I should have known better than to underestimate you! I will be looking twice before doing my happy or duck dance next time, you can be sure!

By the way, did you enjoy it? (blushing)

Jennifer said...

LA, ya think you would have warned me sooner, I tell ya! Or did you and I was just too busy celebrating with my Phillies to remember? Well, I guess there goes my hopes of moving beyond PTA secretary. I had such high hopes too! (sigh)

I heard all about that setup in Tijuana.....does the man have no shame? Don't answer that, I already know the answer! :-)

Jennifer is right on here. 0bama is the stereotypical liberal, feigning compassion (notice how he gets all biblical, talking about being your brothers' keepers?) and promising money for poor people. Meanwhile, he isn't his brother's keeper - the guy lives in abject poverty in a mud hut. He isn't his Auntie's keeper - she lives in a slum in South Boston. I drive by that slum often. I drive fast, disregarding traffic signals. I'm not worried about the traffic cops - they avoid the place. He's not helping her. In fact, HE'S TAKING MONEY FROM HER SHE CLEARLY CAN'T AFFORD TO BE DONATING! That's not the reason he's giving it back, though. Hyp. O. Crite. He's still not offering to help her, either. In fact, this morning the campaign basically said she should be deported. Way to stick up for Auntie, Barack. Is there anymore room for the bodies of this guy's friends and family under the 0bama bus?

And take a look back at Barack and Michelle's tax returns to remind yourselves how much these 2 filthy rich hypocrites have given to charity. Or rather, how much they haven't given!

Yeah, he's real sincere with his compassion. I'm totally buying your shit, Reverend Barack. Quote us some more scripture.
