What the Brits are Seeing that America Isn’t…

From the London Times:

You gotta wonder about us.  Sometimes it’s good to listen to your mother….

Auntie Zeituni: Living the Obama Life in America

  If I help him, he’s gonna help me!

Tell that to Aunt Zeituni Onyango living illegally in the squalor of Barney Frank’s home state of Massachusettes.  Maybe we should ask her how the Obama wealth redistribution plan is working for her. 

Especially since she has given over two hundred sixty of her hard earned American dollars to his campaign.  Illegally.

Wow.  She must be RICH! 

She lives in public housing and lists the Boston Housing Authority as her employer.  I can only guess that living in America in squalor is far better than living in squalor in Kenya, where the “other” famous Obama relative lives on one dollar per month.

Barak Obama says he didn’t know she was living here. Or that she had a government house and a government job.

Or that she was illegal.  

But so were her campaign contributions.  And he didn’t know about them or where they came from either.

Just like he doesn’t know where all of those other “illegal” campaign donations are coming from, including the ones that come from other illegal aliens, illegal sources or other global citizens just contributing thousands of dollars in small increments on untraceable credit cards. 

After all, we can’t even track the illegal aliens in this country…all because they don’t have drivers’ licences.


But soon some of them will have government houses, thanks to failures of Barney Frank, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.  And under the Obama Amnesty Plan, more of them will have drivers’ licences and government jobs.  As we speak, Nancy Pelosi is busy working on her jobs creation plan to present to Congress immediately after the election.

Guess who will get hired first?

Just remember, if the poorest of the poor can come to America (just how did she pay for her plane ticket anyway?) and still have $260 to give to a presidential campaign, then ALL of us are rich.

And all of us will have to pay a little more.  After all, as Joe Biden reminded us, it’s our patriotic duty.

What a great country. 

But don’t look for it to stay that way with Obama as president. 

After all, Auntie Zeituni left Kenya:  she didn’t expect to find Kenya here. 

She came to see her nephew Barry. 

But he’s lost.  And so is she. 

Lost in the socialist bureacracies we call welfare and illegal immigration status.

And so will be America if he wins on Tuesday.

The Real Issues in the Election

Capitalism vs. Marxism

Democracy vs. Communism

Freedom vs. Security

Patriotism vs. Global Citizenship

Responsibility vs. Entitlement

We do have choices.



Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

Obama’s Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim. Click to enlarge

With Colin Powell now repeating the lie that Barack Obama has “always been a Christian,” despite new information further confirming Obama’s Muslim childhood (such as the Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim), one watches with dismay as the Democratic candidate manages to hide the truth on this issue.

Instead, then, let us review a related subject – Obama’s connections and even indebtedness, throughout his career, to extremist Islam. Specifically, he has longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the U.S. government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for its “consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism.”

First, Obama’s ties to Islamists:

  • The cover of one of Khalid al-Mansour’s books, “The Mind and the Mindless – Will the West Rule Forever.”

    The Khalid al-Mansour connection: According to former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton, Al-Mansour “was raising money for” Obama’s expenses at Harvard Law School. Al-Mansour, a black American (né Don Warden), became advisor to Saudi prince Al-Walid bin Talal, CAIR’s largest individual donor. Al-Mansour holds standard Islamist views: he absolves the Islamist government in Sudan of sponsoring slavery, he denies a Jewish tie to Jerusalem, and he wrote a booklet titled “Americans Beware! The Zionist Plot Against S. Arabia.” (Both Obama and al-Mansour deny Sutton’s account.)

  • The Kenny Gamble (also known as Luqman Abdul-Haqq) connection: Gamble, a once-prominent pop music producer, cut the ribbon to the Obama campaign headquarters housed in a south Philadelphia building he owns. Gamble is an Islamist who buys large swaths of real estate in Philadelphia to create a Muslim-only residential area. Also, as the self-styled “amir” of the United Muslim Movement, he has many links to Islamist organizations, including CAIR and the Muslim Alliance in North America. (MANA’s “amir” is Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.)
  • Kenny Gamble

    The Mazen Asbahi connection: The Obama campaign’s first Muslim outreach coordinator resigned after it came to light that he had served on the board of a subsidiary of the Saudi-sponsored North American Islamic Trust, with Jamal Said, another unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Hamas funding trial. Asbahi has ties to CAIR’s Chicago and Detroit offices, to the Islamic Society of North America, yet another unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas funding trial, and to other Islamist organizations.

  • The Minha Husaini connection: The campaign’s second Muslim outreach coordinator has an Islamist background, having served as an intern in the Muslim Public Service Network. Immediately upon her appointment by Obama, she met with a group of about thirty Muslims including such notorious figures as CAIR’s Nihad Awad; the Muslim American Society’s Mahdi Bray, who has publicly supported the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist groups; and Johari Abdul Malik of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Va., who has advised American Muslims: “You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work.”

Second, Obama’s ties to the Nation of Islam:

Louis Farrakhan, who calls Obama “the Messiah.”

Obama’s long-time donor and ally Antoin “Tony” Rezko partnered for nearly three decades with Jabir Herbert Muhammad, a son of NoI leader Elijah Muhammad, and says he gave Jabir and his family “millions of dollars over the years.” Rezko also served as executive director of the Muhammad Ali Foundation, a rogue organization that, without Ali’s permission, exploited the name of this CAIR awardee.

Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s esteemed pastor for twenty years, came out of a Nation background, recently he accepted protection from an NoI security detail, and has praised Louis Farrakhan, the NoI’s leader, as one of the “giants of the African American religious experience.” Wright’s church celebrated Farrakhan for his having “truly epitomized greatness.”

Farrakhan himself endorsed Obama, calling him “the hope of the entire world,” “one who can lift America from her fall,” and even “the Messiah.”

That Obama’s biography touches so frequently on such unsavory organizations as CAIR and the Nation of Islam should give pause. How many of politicians have a single tie to either group, much less seven of them? John McCain charitably calls Obama “a person you do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States,” but Obama’s multiple links to anti-Americans and subversives mean he would fail the standard security clearance process for Federal employees.

Islamic aggression represents America’s strategic enemy; Obama’s many insalubrious connections raise grave doubts about his fitness to serve as America’s commander-in-chief.

The Right Road for America

Look at this morning’s screaming headlines from Gallup Polls:


World Citizens Prefer Obama to McCain by Nearly 4-to-1

Despite Approval of Bush, Africans Favor Obama

In Developed Asia, a Clear Preference for Obama

U.S. Neighbors Prefer Obama to Cain by 3-to-1 Margin

Japanese Back Obama Over McCain

Obama Favored in Key Muslim Countries


For Americans planning to vote in the election, these headlines should provide all the information we need!  Why does the rest of the world support Barak Obama?  What can these people see that we can’t?


I will say it.  They want us to be just like them.  


And now we have the chance to be.


And sadly, many of us think that we should be.  But let’s imagine, just for a moment, what that would look like.


We can have legitimate elections overturned and violent mobs roaming our streets.  We too can have marauding gangs setting fire to churches in our neighborhoods killing women and children (Kenya).


We can have our businesses taken over by the government and our farmers killed on their own property, disrupting our food supply so that people starve and agricultural scarcity becomes the norm (Zimbabwe).


We can have sharia law enacted throughout our entire courts system (Nigeria…and soon Britain).


We can have our unemployed cross borders and find jobs (Mexico).


We can have an inefficient, bureaucratic healthcare plan (Canada).


We can have the largest teen suicide rate in the industrialized world (Japan).


We can have homicide bombers blowing us up in markets and malls



We can have our women and our daughters veiled and subjected to beatings and honor killings (Saudi Arabia, Pakistan).


Is that what we really want?


Gallup touts itself as “The Power to Know–and Act on–What the World is Thinking.”  IF we assume that Gallup polling is legitimate, then we are the ones who should be thinking. 


We should not be voting for the man the world would choose for us as President of the United States. 


Because we are not like the rest of the world.


And if you don’t believe it, just ask any immigrant who left one of the above mentioned countries to come to America to live and to work.


We should know why they came here…and why so many of them die trying to get here every year. 


But familiarity breeds contempt.  And we have become quite contemptuous of our freedom, so much so that we are willing to sacrifice our unique identity among the nations in order to appear sensitive and responsive to geo-political forces pressuring us to conform to the rest of the world’s standards.


But our immigrants know what those standards are.  They know what life is like in those other places.  And they could answer our question.


They didn’t want to be citizens of the world.  They didn’t want to be like everyone else.


They wanted to be free.


And in America they could be…


So they chose us.


And today, we must also choose.


In this election, more than any other in recent history, America faces difficult decisions that will shape the identity of the nation for years to come:  more or less government…liberty or security…life or death…freedom or dependence….


We are at an ideological crossroad.  And if we turn Left, we may never return to this same crossing.


Because if we choose to be like the rest of the world and be swayed by its influence, the America we have known and loved will cease to exist.  And though the world would continue to turn, it would never be the same without the America, imperfect as it is, that provides a clear example of freedom, self-determination and opportunity to more people than anywhere else, no matter where you look all over the globe. 


And that would be a decided turn for the worse…not just for us, but for all people everywhere who dream of being one of us.


But today, we still have a choice about what road to take, just like our immigrant friends and colleagues did.


They chose to come to America…the land of the free.


In this election, we need to choose the same road. 


Or risk finding ourselves in another, very unfamiliar country.
