Change We Can Believe in … Barack Obama’s Aunt from Kenya living in US illegally & Donated to Obama Campaign


Change you can believe in … Obama’s aunt is not only in the country illegally and a deportation fugitive, she has illegally contributed to the Obama campaign.

Now Obama tells us he did not know about aunt’s illegal status. Between, Ayers, Wright, Rezco et all … does Obama know much about anything? Or is he lying through his teeth? What else does America need to discover of Obama before they actually question his motives, his policies and his past?

Just the other day we had learned that Barack Obama’s aunt was living in Boston, MA in less than stellar circumstances. One wondered why Obama did not share his own wealth an help with aunt. Instead, Obama would rather have you “spread your wealth” in order to do so.

Now we find out that Obama’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, from Kenya is illegally living in the United States. You have got to be joking. A Presidential candidate has a relative that is an illegal alien and no one prior to today ever bothered to find this out or vet Obama family members? Joe the Plumber had his records illegally searched in seconds; however, when it comes to anything to do with Obama it is never a concern. As Hot Air stated, And so, after six months of being studiously ignored, amnesty makes a last-minute cameo.

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.

Information about the deportation case was disclosed and confirmed by two separate sources, one of them a federal law enforcement official. The information they made available is known to officials in the federal government, but the AP could not establish whether anyone at a political level in the Bush administration or in the McCain campaign had been involved in its release.

In typical and expected fashion, Barack Obama denies knowing anything regarding his aunts illegal status in the United States. Ssssure he did. Just like Obama did not know that domestic terrorist Bill Ayers was unrepentant or that Obama sat 20 years in a church pew and never heard the anti-American and hateful rantings of Revered Wright.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Saturday he didn’t know that one of his relatives was living in the United States illegally and believes the appropriate laws should be followed.

The Associated Press found that Obama’s aunt had been instructed to leave the country four years ago by an immigration judge who rejected her request for asylum from her native Kenya. The woman, Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUHN on-YANG-oh), is living in public housing in Boston and is the half-sister of Obama’s late father.

A statement given to the AP by Obama’s campaign said, “Senator Obama has no knowledge of her status but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed.”

Michelle Malkin: Obama’s illegal alien aunt (and campaign donor!) is a deportation fugitive; Bush administration moves to protect her

Well now.

Turns out Aunti Zeituni Onyango, one of Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama’s many relatives made famous in his memoir, is an illegal alien. And not just a run-of-the-mill illegal alien on welfare.

She’s one of the hundreds of thousands of deportation fugitives — absconders – whom I’ve been reporting on for the past six years. After 9/11, the government vowed to crack down on absconders. They’ve failed abysmally.

WIZBANG: Obama’s Aunt an Illegal Alien; She Contributed to His Campaign; Lives in Public Housing

UPDATE I: Obama returns aunt’s donation after illegal immigrant report

So Barack Obama did not know that his campaign contributing aunt was in the US illegally? Obama does not seem to know much of anything. Out of curiosity this raises a larger question. How many of Obama’s campaign contributions are legal? Hell, he does not know his aunt’s legal situation, maybe Obama would like to review all of his campaign contributions and question exactly who is donating to his campaign and where they live.

Aides said Obama had not been in touch with his late father’s sister, Zeituni Onyango, 56, for at least four years, and questioned reporting about her residency status so close to Tuesday’s election against Republican John McCain.

Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt said the campaign was returning 265 dollars donated by the aunt to her nephew’s White House bid.

Foreigners cannot donate money to US presidential candidates. But aides refused to say whether returning the money was an acknowledgement that the aunt was an illegal alien.

“Given the information that has been brought to our attention, the contributions are being refunded,” LaBolt said in a statement, without elaborating.

Obama’s chief strategist David Axelrod would not comment on the aunt’s immigration status but said Obama last met her for sure at his Senate inauguration ceremony in 2004.

      another character appears on the stage.

      i am waiting for Joe the Plumbers view on auntie-gate before i form my opinion.

      I have read the above mentioned article -

      I learn the Obama (in memoir, states “Anti”, but yet today in an article, he states he had no knowledge of this Aunt.

      Too many important lies seem to be coming into light – but since it will never appear on the evening news or papers, American will once again be in the dark and making decisions based on lies and half-truths. God (if there is one), Help America.

      Exactly how many suspect & questionable associations are we supposed to stomach?

      People are about to elect a President who has family members who have contributed to illegal immigration and are bleeding the American tax payers?

      This while all John McCain has done is give his blood, sweat and tears for his country. Never has there been a more contrasting situation between candidates and an obvious choice.

      Its all about character and Obama is completely void of it. Ever time he is confronted its the same answer … I do not know.

      Wake up America.

      Barack Obama’s family in Kenya stops media interviews
      October 30th, 2008

      By ERIC OLOO

      The Kenya family of US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has halted all media engagements until after the US presidential election on November 4 .

      The move has been taken to give Obama’s paternal grandmother, Mama Sarah Onyango Obama a break, according to a family member Mr Said Obama.

      In the recent past, a battery of local and international journalists have been visiting the home on a daily basis to seek interviews from the 85-year old granny.

      But Mr Said Obama said the family would open up to the media on November 5, a day after the elections.

      And on Wednesday, Siaya District police chief Mr Johnston Ipara said security officers would restrict entry to the home to ensure the family privacy is guaranteed

      “People who visit the family’s home in K’Ogelo will be restrained from conducting interviews to the family members,” he said

      Mr Ipara added the move was taken to ensure that people, especially the media, do not pre-empt the outcome of the US elections by using comments from the family members.

      It amazes me how racism is alive, and people just wont admit that they are hate mongers down to the core of their bones. For a lot of people it doesnt matter what obama stands for or how up right of a person he is or isnt, the bottom line is that he is black and the millions of white people who are saying all these negative things about him are racists who would rather see any white person as president before Senator Obama. This probably wont get blogged, but I dont understand how these racist, hate mongers can live with themselves….

    11. Michelle on November 1st, 2008 7:09 pm

      Do we really want a President who can’t seem to remember anything? Every time the truth comes out, his answer is always the same, I didn’t know. What a crock! This man is so full of crap.

      Wait a minute … if Obama didn’t know that his aunt was living here illegally, how is it that in a matter of hours he could track down all of the donations that she had made to his campaign?

      As I pointed out in an earlier post, not only has she been in this country for four years after she was ordered to leave … she is in a public housing project.

      According to the article that I read, her presence there is illegal as well.

      And her donations to the Obama campaign, small as they may have been, also are illegal.

      Meanwhile, what is being done about this?

      Apparently, nothing whatever. All the political types and government functionaries (you know, the ones who are supposed to be enforcing the law) are keeping mum.

      Does anyone believe that Obama didn’t know about her status?

      Not only that … what kind of a statement does this make about our (alleged) determination to make our country safer? I doubt that Obama’s aunt is a threat … but if someone is ordered to leave the country, and four years later is still here, and nothing is done about it …

      … does that make a certain statement to those who might think laws were written to be obeyed?

      Tell your friends, and show them the proof.

      Adolf Hitler was well-known to have used hypnosis on crowds to gain power in Germany. (Just Google it if you doubt it.) So why cant this happen in America? It is happening.

      Now, this document, An Examination of Obama’s Use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches is really spreading. Many people, including young people, are starting to wake up.

      Young people have come up with a saying, “Don’t drink the kool-aid Obama is pushing on you.”

      Obama has no accomplishments, we don’t know him, he wrote a memoir, he has racist connections, and he is using hypnosis, he thinks he’s the Messiah and that he should be in control of the world. We’ve seen this story before in Germany in the 1930′s, haven’t we? We know what happened there.

      Obama’s use of hypnosis in speeches is why:
      -nothing sticks to him
      -the huge crowds
      -the huge money contributions
      -the mesmerized effect, especially in young people, who, because of their imaginations are more susceptible to hypnosis (read the document)
      -the exorbitant election fraud, rule-breaking and bias in the media
      -he gets away with changing every position
      -people are calling him the “greatest leader of a generation” with no accomplishments

      You have to read this document to understand how his hypnosis works. Logically and rationally, why not get to know this guy a little more before handing the world over to him? Why not wait?

      PS – “Dont drink Obama’s Kool-Aid”

    19. ANewGirl on November 2nd, 2008 5:27 pm

      The magic number? Something like 270 electoral votes needed……..

      Me thinks it’s rather cocky that Obama is already telling reporters he’ll be happy to speak to them in a newsconference fielding questions on WED., NOV 5th (meaning once he is President)

      And, in his speeches today he said in Ohio, after all his BS about change change change and what he’s going to do for America…He stated,

      “Ohio, I have 2 words for you: Two days! ”

      Wow…very assumptive again, borderline arrogant—not to be confused with confidence.

      Foxfire : we know your education level is on par with that of readers of Dr. Suess books which is why your writing style sucks and is tiresome!

      With that, he DID say he was going to tax individuals, actually HOUSEHOLDS that make $250K and over! Or is it $200K like he said in his latest ad? Wait, or is it $150K like Joe Biden said, which of course, he has been muted since he said that…speaks volumes? OR, is it $120K as one of his latest stumpers spoke about on Friday?

      You wench are a moron! Keep spilling the Olbermann propoganda! Can you come up with an original idea of your own? Didn’t think so….

      I’ll be waving as you are standing in your free Food Stamp line!
