Found in a rundown Boston estate: Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango

So Much For "Spreading HIS Wealth Around


'Auntie Zeituni', who, with Uncle Omar, dropped out of sight after moving to the US, is backing the presidential candidate from her modest flat

Barack Obama has lived one version of the American Dream that has taken him to the steps of the White House. But a few miles from where the Democratic presidential candidate studied at Harvard, his Kenyan aunt and uncle, immigrants living in modest circumstances in Boston, have a contrasting American story. Fraud-721827-SMALL

Zeituni Onyango, the aunt so affectionately described in Mr Obama’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father, lives in a disabled-access flat on a rundown public housing estate in South Boston.

A second relative believed to be the long-lost “Uncle Omar” described in the book was beaten by armed robbers with a “sawed-off rifle” while working in a corner shop in the Dorchester area of the city. He was later evicted from his one-bedroom flat for failing to pay $2,324.20 (£1,488) arrears, according to the Boston Housing Court.

The US press has repeatedly rehearsed Mr Obama’s extraordinary odyssey, but the other side of the family’s American experience has only been revealed in parts. Just across town from where Mr Obama made history as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, some of his closest blood relatives have confronted the harshness of immigrant life in America.

In his book Mr Obama writes that “Uncle Omar” had gone missing after moving to Boston in the 1960s – a quarter-century before Mr Obama first visited his family in Kenya. Aunt Zeituni is now also living in Boston, and recently made a $260 campaign contribution to her nephew's presidential bid from a work address in the city.

Speaking outside her home in Flaherty Way, South Boston, on Tuesday, Ms Onyango, 56, confirmed she was the “Auntie Zeituni” in Mr Obama’s memoir. She declined to answer most other questions about her relationship with the presidential contender until after the November 4 election. “I can’t talk about it, I just pray for him, that’s all,” she said, adding: “After the 4th, I can talk to anyone.”

A photograph of Ms Onyango was later shown to George Hussein Onyango, Barack Obama’s half-brother in Nairobi, who confirmed that it was their aunt. George Onyango, 26, the youngest child of Barack Obama Sr, said that he had spent weekends with his Aunt Zeituni when he was growing up, and instantly recognised her.

George Onyango said that his aunt had left for the US about eight years ago but sent him e-mails. “She left to find work and I suppose she thought her life would be better there,” he said. “She was kind and caring.”

In his memoir Mr Obama describes the joy of meeting his father’s family during his first visit to Kenya in 1988. Aunt Zeituni, then a computer programmer at Kenya Breweries in Nairobi, is portrayed as a feisty woman who proclaims herself “the champion dancer”. Uncle Omar, by contrast, remains a mysterious figure who left for America and never came back. At one point in the book a half-sister tells Mr Obama that people “like our Uncle Omar, in Boston” move to the West.

“They promise to return after completing school. They say they’ll send for the family once they get settled. At first they write once a week. Then it’s just a month. Then they stop writing completely. No one sees them again.”

Aunt Zeituni and Uncle Omar are the children of Mr Obama’s grandfather Hussein Onyango Obama, by his third wife – the woman Mr Obama calls “Granny” because she raised his father. Mr Obama’s father, Barack Sr, was Onyango Obama’s son by his second wife, Akumu. That makes Zeituni and Omar a half-sister and half-brother of Mr Obama’s father, or Mr Obama’s half-aunt and half-uncle.

While Mr Obama was on his voyage of personal discovery in Africa, his aunt and uncle were engaged in their own journey in his homeland.

Obama: "Supreme Court Should Mandate Redistribution of Wealth"

Recently Uncovered Audio from 2001 Interview On Chicago Public Radio WBEZ Proves Obama's Socialist Intentions

Listen for yourselves as Barak Hussein Obama talks about how the US Supreme Court should mandate re-distribution of wealth and the "failure" of the Great Society.  In this clip, Obama argues not just for redistribution of wealth, he argues for REPARATIONS in the form of wealth redistribution.

Partial Transcript:

OBAMA: You know, if you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the courts, I think where it succeeded was to get formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples — so that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at a lunch counter and order, and as long as I was able to pay for it I’d be OK. But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society.

And to that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn’t shifted. And one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, because the civil rights movement became so court-focused, I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which to bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that.

….. Karen (Caller): The gentleman made the point that the Warren Court wasn’t terribly radical with economic changes. My question is it too late for that kind of reparative work economically, and is that the appropriate place for reparative economic work to take place?

Host: You mean the courts?

Karen: The courts, or would it be legislation at this point?

Obama: Maybe I’m showing my bias here as a legislator as well as a law professor, but I’m not optimistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts. Y’know, the institution just isn’t structured that way.

You look at very rare examples where during the desegregation era where the court, for example, was willing to, for example, order changes that cost money to local school districts, and the court was very uncomfortable with it. It was hard to manage, it was hard to figure out. You start getting into all sorts of separation of powers issues, y’know, in terms of the court monitoring or engaging in a process that essentially is administrative and takes a lot of time.

The court’s just not very good at it, and politically it’s very hard to legitimize opinions from the court in that regard. So, I mean, I think that although you can craft theoretical justifications for it legally, y’know I think any three of us sitting here could come up with a rationale for bringing about economic change through the courts. …..

The Obama Position on Gun Control

Obama says that he'll protect American Citizen's rights to own firearms for the purposes of hunting and target practice.

But the Second Amendment isn't about shooting ducks or simple "target practice."

The Second Amendment is about the ability of American Citizens to protect themselves from a tyrannical government and self defense.

While serving as an Illinois Junior State Senator, Barack Obama voted against the right of Illinois Citizens to carry firearms to protect themselves.  Today, Chicago is the murder capital of the country.  Only the gang's have guns in Chicago.

Obama also voted to ban the sale of handguns across Illinois, voted to ban the sale of handguns within five miles of any school or public park in Illinois, and voted "present" on a law which would provide mandatory sentencing for any gang member who used a handgun while committing a crime.

Present?  Obama couldn't even vote to punish gang members who used guns?  Nothing racial about that at all now is there?

So what will happen to your right to use a gun to defend youself under an Obama Presidency?  Watch and learn.


Barak Obama "Subprime Loans Were A Good Idea"


After the Sub Prime Crisis already started, in Sept. 2007, Barak Obama gave a speech to NASDAQ saying sub prime mortgages, which literally gave homes to people who could not afford them was a GOOD IDEA.

Watch further as major Obama Campaign Contributor Franklin Raines (who destroyed Fannie Mae and received a multi-million dollar golden parachute afterwards) admit that subprime mortgages were "targeted to give minorities a home" that they could not otherwise afford.

Finally, someone admits what really got us into all this financial mess - GOVERNMENT RE-DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH!

If you want more of the same, by all means, vote Barak Obama. 

If you want REAL CHANGE, vote for Senator John S. McCain.

Obama The "Wealth Redistributionist"

What does Barak Hussein Obama really think about wealth redistribution?  What about reparations?

Here's a 1995 interview of Obama promoting his book "Dreams of my Father" interlaced with some of his political positions today.

It doesn't take more than a cursory listen to understand his anti-Capitalism, pro-Socialism politics are dangerous for America.

Listen closely as he describes "white executives who live in the suburbs and don't want to pay taxes for inner city children to go to school."

John Murtagh, child victim of William Ayers speaks out

The Link of Obama-Ayers Exposed as a direct victim of Ayers terrorist acts speaks out

The question on the table is about Obama's Judgement.  Not as an 8 year old when Ayers committed his heinous, terrorist attacks against his fellow Americans, rather Obama's Judgement as a 30+ year old in associating with a known, unrepentant terrorist in William Ayers.

John Murtagh was nine (9) years old when Ayers and his Weather Underground terrorist buddies sent and detonated 4 bombs to the Murtagh home. 

Hear in his own words how Obama is a hypocrite for trying to distance himself from Ayers, and how Obama knew about Ayer's terrorist past.

While you're viewing, think about this question: How is it General Colin Powell, who fought against terrorists, could endorse a terrorist enabling Barack Obama for President.

But Powell says it's not about "race."

We Are All "Joe The Plumber" Today

Joe "The Plumber" Wurzelbacher in his own words, talking about why he won't vote for Barack Obama.

John McCain: I'm with Joe The Plumber!

And this morning, an entire cottage industry pops up around "Joe The Plumber."

Joe The Plumber starts a movement of ONE.  How many other Union Members feel the way Joe does?

McCain's Line of the Night:

And this is what happens if Obama and his corrupt ACORN manage to put him in the White House.

Who's Responsible For The Financial Meltdown?

While Democrats Shunned Responsibility, McCain Tried To Reform Fannie/Freddie

Barak Obama likes to say he "wrote a letter" to the Treasury Secretary to reign-in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but has NEVER been able to produce the letter he wrote.  Neither has Obama been able to convene one of the very Senate Banking Sub-Committee's, of which HE IS IN CHARGE, to investigate the fraud that Fannie & Freddie committed against the American Taxpayers.

Now, who did write a letter in an attempt to try and get Congress to investigate the fraud that was being perpetrated on the American Taxpayers?  John McCain, and here's the proof.  Note that NONE of the signatures on this letter are of Barak Obama, or ANY Democrat with authority in the last 2 years to investigate Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac:



So where exactly IS that letter that Barak Hussein Obama claims to have written?

Once again, the reality is there is only ONE Candidate for President that has truly fought for the American Taxpayer - and that's John S. McCain.

Obama Trying To Distance Himself From Corrupt ACORN

22 States Now Investigating ACORN Voter Registration Fraud

What amount of influence will a corrupt organization like ACORN have in an Obama Administration?  Look no further than Obama's address to ACORN in December, 2007 as the Primary Season was about to kick off.

Note, this is the SAME ACORN that Obama gave $800,000 to for "voter registration services" under the front organization "Voter Services, Inc."

Barak Obama - Change WE CAN NOT Believe In

Obama's "Tax Cuts for 95% Of American's" Illusion

It depends on what the meaning of 'tax cut' is.

Wall Street Journal, October 13th, 2008

One of Barack Obama's most potent campaign claims is that he'll cut taxes for no less than 95% of "working families." He's even promising to cut taxes enough that the government's tax share of GDP will be no more than 18.2% -- which is lower than it is today.

[Review & Outlook] AP

It's a clever pitch, because it lets him pose as a middle-class tax cutter while disguising that he's also proposing one of the largest tax increases ever on the other 5%. But how does he conjure this miracle, especially since more than a third of all Americans already pay no income taxes at all? There are several sleights of hand, but the most creative is to redefine the meaning of "tax cut."

For the Obama Democrats, a tax cut is no longer letting you keep more of what you earn. In their lexicon, a tax cut includes tens of billions of dollars in government handouts that are disguised by the phrase "tax credit." Mr. Obama is proposing to create or expand no fewer than seven such credits for individuals:

[Review & Outlook]

- A $500 tax credit ($1,000 a couple) to "make work pay" that phases out at income of $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 per couple.

- A $4,000 tax credit for college tuition.

- A 10% mortgage interest tax credit (on top of the existing mortgage interest deduction and other housing subsidies).

- A "savings" tax credit of 50% up to $1,000.

- An expansion of the earned-income tax credit that would allow single workers to receive as much as $555 a year, up from $175 now, and give these workers up to $1,110 if they are paying child support.

- A child care credit of 50% up to $6,000 of expenses a year.

- A "clean car" tax credit of up to $7,000 on the purchase of certain vehicles.

Here's the political catch. All but the clean car credit would be "refundable," which is Washington-speak for the fact that you can receive these checks even if you have no income-tax liability. In other words, they are an income transfer -- a federal check -- from taxpayers to nontaxpayers. Once upon a time we called this "welfare," or in George McGovern's 1972 campaign a "Demogrant." Mr. Obama's genius is to call it a tax cut.

The Tax Foundation estimates that under the Obama plan 63 million Americans, or 44% of all tax filers, would have no income tax liability and most of those would get a check from the IRS each year. The Heritage Foundation's Center for Data Analysis estimates that by 2011, under the Obama plan, an additional 10 million filers would pay zero taxes while cashing checks from the IRS.

The total annual expenditures on refundable "tax credits" would rise over the next 10 years by $647 billion to $1.054 trillion, according to the Tax Policy Center. This means that the tax-credit welfare state would soon cost four times actual cash welfare. By redefining such income payments as "tax credits," the Obama campaign also redefines them away as a tax share of GDP. Presto, the federal tax burden looks much smaller than it really is.

The political left defends "refundability" on grounds that these payments help to offset the payroll tax. And that was at least plausible when the only major refundable credit was the earned-income tax credit. Taken together, however, these tax credit payments would exceed payroll levies for most low-income workers.

It is also true that John McCain proposes a refundable tax credit -- his $5,000 to help individuals buy health insurance. We've written before that we prefer a tax deduction for individual health care, rather than a credit. But the big difference with Mr. Obama is that Mr. McCain's proposal replaces the tax subsidy for employer-sponsored health insurance that individuals don't now receive if they buy on their own. It merely changes the nature of the tax subsidy; it doesn't create a new one.

There's another catch: Because Mr. Obama's tax credits are phased out as incomes rise, they impose a huge "marginal" tax rate increase on low-income workers. The marginal tax rate refers to the rate on the next dollar of income earned. As the nearby chart illustrates, the marginal rate for millions of low- and middle-income workers would spike as they earn more income.

Some families with an income of $40,000 could lose up to 40 cents in vanishing credits for every additional dollar earned from working overtime or taking a new job. As public policy, this is contradictory. The tax credits are sold in the name of "making work pay," but in practice they can be a disincentive to working harder, especially if you're a lower-income couple getting raises of $1,000 or $2,000 a year. One mystery -- among many -- of the McCain campaign is why it has allowed Mr. Obama's 95% illusion to go unanswered.

OBama Admits His Tax Plan Increases Taxes

Wants to "Spread the Wealth Around"


Is it any surprise that this finally comes out?  Obama admits it in this clip that he's going to increase taxes to "spread the wealth around." 
So how will this affect the small business owner in this clip?  Yep, his taxes will go up so "those behind him" will have a shot at some of his "wealth."
Make no mistake about it: when the Government says they're going to increase taxes on "the wealthy" they're doing two things.  First, they're playing class warfare.  Everyone seems to want to "sock it to the rich" as a way to blame their own status in life not on their own lack of effort, but on someone else.
Second, when the Government aims at the "big guy" they invariably hit the little guy. 
Simply put, wealth creates jobs.  The government doesn't create jobs only money can do that.  Consumption, starting up small businesses, hiring people - that all takes money.  If the government were to do it, they'd have to literally print money to make it happen - then you'd see super-inflation as the value of the dollar decreases.
So those making more than $250k/year are going to pay more.  What does that mean?  Well, first thing it means is that those small business owners - who comprise the true job engine of this country - won't have the money to pay for an extra worker or two because the confiscatory policies of a potential OBama administration would tax that money away.  Second, any "benefits" that employer may fund will likely be gone.  That means cuts in medical coverage for example, or not funding 401K's.  These are real, tangible benefits that in all likelihood would stop or be dramatically minimized under an Obama administration because Obama wants to "tax the rich."
I have but one word for Obama voters - suckers.  I hope you're the first ones to lose your jobs, benefits and medical coverage for being stupid enough for putting the most inexperienced candidate ever to run for office, into the most powerful office in the world.

Obama's Friend, Radical Terrorist William Ayers

Judging Obama By The Company He Keeps


Another example of the types of "Friends" Obama keeps.  As we now know, Weather Underground Terrorist William Ayers wasn't just some "guy from the 'hood" as Barack Hussein Obama claimed.  Rather, Ayers helped Obama launch his political career from Ayers own home. 

It was William Ayers that introduced Barack Obama to the liberal elites in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood.  It was William Ayers that opened his home up to Obama and invited him in.  It was William Ayers that helped Obama raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for his Illinois State Senate run, and eventually Obama's US Senate run. 

Obama accepted Ayers' help willingly - yet never stopped to learn "who is this Ayers guy anyway?"

Obama likes to say "it's about judgement" in important matters such as Iraq (where Obama refused to back the troops and demanded a timeline for withdrawl.)  Yet, in matters regarding personal friendships, who he  worked with directly to help raise money for his  candidacy, and who Obama served on several left-wing Progressive boards with, suddenly judgement doesn't matter?

Obama can't have it both ways. 

We've written extensively on Ayers and linked to other sites, today we simply make the case with the following quote.  This is the type of people that Barack Hussein Obama "hangs" with in his "hood."



"Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents, that's where it's really at."

--Bill Ayers, Weather Underground, 1970





Simply stated, there is no way on God's green earth that this liberal POS should EVER be allowed anywhere near the White House. 

To think that there are those in this country who ignorantly vote for Obama simply because he "speaks well" sends shivers down my spine.

CNN Finds Extensive Ties Between OBama, Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers (Weather Underground)

Obama's Claim Ayers "Just Some Guy In The Neighborhood" Is A Lie

Finally, someone in the "mainstream media" goes off and does the homework that many of us in the Blogging community did some time ago.  CNN actually does the homework and uncovers the OBama/Ayers connection. 

Despite OBama saying William Ayers (the founding member of Weather Underground - a domestic Terrorist group that bombed the Pentagon and Capital) was "just a guy in the neighborhood" the fact is OBama's and Ayers relationship is much deeper than OBama has admitted.

As this blog reported, OBama's first political fundraiser for his US Senate Run was in William Ayers' home.  Ayers was responsible for helping raise more than $500,000 for Obama through Ayer's connections.  Ayers also helped Obama's "former" Pastor Jeremiah "God Damn' America!" Wright financially, and is linked with both Obama and Wright.

Obama has been far less than truthful in his statements pertaining to his relationship with a domestic terrorist who's responsible for countless injuries and deaths of innocent American's on our own soil.

It's a matter of judgement, and here we have another documented case of OBama lying about his relationships with some pretty shady characters.

This video runs about 4:30, and speaks for itself.

An Open Letter To The McCain Campaign

It's Time To Talk Directly To The American People: We Deserve To Know The Truth

As someone who worked hard for the "Republican Revolution" in 1994, I've become increasingly distressed as the Republican Party lost its way from the very message that put them in control of Congress for more than a decade - to losing their way, Congress and potentially now the White House at a time when America needs experienced, seasoned leadership - not the empty suit "hype" of the Obama campaign.

Today's entry serves as my "Straight Talk" to the McCain campaign on how to get back on track, back in the lead, and win the White House. 

From my perspective there can be no time more serious for this country than right now.  The decline we face not just for our economy but our stature in the world as the leader - a shining beacon on a hill - matters to those of us who have always loved our country.  What happens in this election will set the course for this country for a generation.

Chris Dodd, the senior Senator (D. CT) said it best two weeks ago when he said on television "The American people deserve to know the truth, and what got us to this point."  I couldn't agree more. I also believe that Dodd issued a challenge he believed the McCain campaign and the Republican Party wouldn't pick up.  After all, the "mainstream media" is clearly in the Democrats corner once again so how would a response to that challenge make it out to the American People?  Surely the "mainstream media" wouldn't dare let the truth really come out now would they?

They would if they didn't have a choice.  And I contend that they don't.

Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, your VP running mate, proved during the VP debates that she knew how to work around the media and talk straight to the American people.  She followed Ronald Reagan's example.

In answering Gwen Ifill's opening question, Palin announced that she may or may not answer the questions posed to her that evening.  Instead, she was going to take her message directly to the American people.   And that's exactly what she did.

Now THAT's being a Maverick, and it is exactly why Sarah Palin electrifies the Conservatives in the Republican Party.  No doubt, it's also why she has the same effect on so-called "Independents" and "Moderate" Democrats much to the chagrin of the "mainstream" media.

Clearly, Governor Palin knows how to talk directly to the American People.  Senator McCain, it's time you took a valuable lesson from your VP candidate and follow her, and Ronald Reagan's lead.  Be the Maverick, Senator.

In taking the truth to the American people, here's what I believe you should do during the next debate.

First, stop pandering to the media.  They only liked you while you were opposing the Bush Administration and working with the Democrats.  Now that you're matched up against their boy, Obama they're going to do nothing but run interference for him and put obstacles up for you.  Stop playing by their rules.

Second, when the first question is directed your way, follow Palin's lead.  Look right into the camera and tell the American people that you're not going to play the media's game and that you're going to speak directly to them.  American's overwhelmingly have a distrust of the media which tries telling us how to think at every turn.  Be the Maverick.

Third, the American People deserve to know the truth about how we got into this mess and they're looking for you to tell it in plainspoken language.  If that means pointing the finger at the Democrats then they want you to do it.  American's want to know who's responsible for the policies that created this mess.  We have a right to know!

Here's the dirty little secret of this campaign season, Senator McCain: the average voter is looking for a reason to vote against  Obama.  Those of us who live in Illinois know exactly how inexperienced he is, we know about his bad judgement.  What the rest of the country wants to know is WHY they should vote AGAINST him.  If it's true that Obama represents "change" then we the American people deserve to know what "change" Obama will bring.

The fact is this.  As a "community organizer" Obama had a large hand in creating this mess along with the same entrenched liberal Democrats that control the House & Senate today.  The American People deserve - and need to know - how this situation came about.


Obama Says Subprime Mortgages Were Good Idea (Sept. 2007)


Here's the straight talk that you need to have with the American People during the debate, Senator:

- First, the Community Re-Investment Act of 1977 passed by a Democrat House & Senate, signed by then President Jimmy Carter laid the foundation for the current financial mess we're in.


History of Community Re-Investment Act


- Second, Obama as a "Community Organizer" in the 80's and 90's  helped to advance ACORN's agenda in suing Banks to give sub-prime mortgages to low and no income borrowers.  In short, people who couldn't repay the loans given to them.  ACORN in Chicago was funded by none other than Theresa Heinz Kerry, wife of liberal Senator John Kerry who lost the 2004 election.   The same Theresa and John Kerry helped to promote Obama in the Democrat Party ranks by obtaining a prime-time speaking slot for him during the Democrat Convention in 2004.

- Third, as a young lawyer and still "Community Organizer" for ACORN, Obama led the charge in suing small to medium sized banks in the mid 1990's through early 2002 to force them to provide loans to low-income/no income families in the Chicago area.  Obama also led the charge to "blackmail" Fannie Mae to back the loans. 

- Fourth, in 1995, the Community Reinvestment Act was re-written by the Clinton Administration and required banks to find ways to provide mortgages to their poorer communities. It also let community activists such as Barack Obama to intervene at yearly bank reviews, shaking the banks down for large pots of money. As a member of ACORN, Obama led the charge to do just this in the Chicago area.  It is this specific re-write of the Community Reinvestment Act that is responsible for today's crisis. Banks that did not comply with the new Clinton Administration mandates were sued for "non-compliance" and faced retribution by the Clinton led Treasury.  In short, Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac were bound by bad Government Regulation to throw their doors open to bad loans that were written by any bank or mortgage initiator.

Fifth, in 1997/1998 Barack Obama as an attorney for ACORN sued many banks in the Chicago area forcing them to lend money to borrowers with less than good credit.  Ultimately, this caused a spike in housing prices which priced those who the Community Reinvestment Act was supposed to help, right out of the housing market.  This also enabled predatory lending practices along with buyers purchasing homes that they - and the banks - knew they couldn't otherwise afford. 

As a lawyer, Barack Obama was all too happy to sue banks and other lending institutions to force them to loan money to those that could never pay it back to advance liberal housing policies, the 1995 re-write of the Community Re-Investment Act, and the goals of ACORN.

In short, Barack Obama was part of the problem.

Now for the solution.

- In 2003 and again 2004, President Bush saw the problem and proposed sweeping regulatory changes to Fannie/Freddie to avoid the collapse we're now seeing. 

- Democrats, led by Barney Frank opposed any regulation of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac twelve (12) times because they knew that tightening regulations and lending practices would hurt their "constituency" and cost them votes.   Quote Barney Frank the so-called "architect" of the recent bailout directly when he said in 2003 "These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis, the more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.'


Video of Democrats Blocking Reform of Fannie/Freddie


- Again in 2005, just before the Democrats took over Congress in early 2006, you yourself Senator McCain, proposed sweeping changes to Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac as the housing bubble grew forcing an increasing burden on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to guarantee bad loans. Once again, Democrats opposed any changes and the number of sub-prime mortgages spiked to an all-time high without the financial assets required in Fannie & Freddie to back them up. 

- These loans did not have appropriate collateral to guarantee their value, so banks and financial institutions split them up and "packaged" them with good loans to sell to unwitting investors.

- The reason this is important is because it's an outcome of the Clinton Administration's 1995 re-write of the Community Investment Act which reduced the amount of data collection and record keeping required by Banks with more than $250 million in assets.  This is exactly why no one knows the amount of "damage" done to our economy or the true value of the "subprime loans" that are out there.  In short Senator, the $700 billion bailout likely isn't enough!

In speaking these simple truth's to the American people it would set the record straight on exactly who's responsible for our current economic problems and why they were not corrected ahead of time.  

At each step it is important to say that the liberal policies espoused by Democrats and Barack Obama are directly responsible for laying the foundation for our country's current economic mess, and also for preventing any regulatory oversight that would've stopped it from happening.

Democrats and Barack Obama are directly linked to this financial disaster.  The American People deserve to know this simple truth.  Many are looking for a reason NOT to vote for Obama, the most in-experienced candidate for President this country has ever seen.

Time in this campaign is running short, Senator McCain.  Are you going to pick up the gauntlet that Chris Dodd threw down and answer it with the facts, or are you going to continue pandering to the media hoping they'll "like" you once again?

The American People deserve an answer. 

That's my straight-talk to the McCain/Palin campaign.

Did Obama Really Write "Dreams of my Father?"

An analysis of Dreams of my Father and Weather Underground Terrorist William Ayers' Fugitive Days reveals Ayers as the Ghost Writer for Obama's Memoir

How is it a relatively unaccomplished writer with no history of publishing anything - despite being the editor of the Harvard Law review - was able to write what Time Magazine called the "best written memoir ever produced by an American Politician?" 

Simple, Obama didn't write it.  Despite Obama's claims that Weather Underground Terrorist William Ayers was just some "guy down the block" an analysis of Ayers book "Fugitive Days" and Obama's "Dreams of my Father" proves that Ayers wasn't just some "guy down the block" - Ayers wrote Obama's memoir.

Jack Cashill is an investigative author who's been writing extensively on this subject and just two days ago he wrote an article proving Obama couldn't possibly have authored his "memoirs."

Prior to 1990, when Barack Obama contracted to write Dreams From My Father, he had written very close to nothing.

As an undergraduate at Occidental College, Obama had composed what he calls some “very bad poetry,” and he does not sell himself short.

In 1981, Occidental’s literary magazine published two of Obama’s poems—“Pop” and “Underground.” These poems are only a little sillier than the average undergraduate’s, but they show not a glint of promise. From “Underground”:

Under water grottos, caverns

Filled with apes

That eat figs.

Stepping on the figs

That the apes

Eat, they crunch.

The apes howl, bare

Their fangs, dance . . .

Los Angeles media critic Kevin Roderick rightly described the exposure of Obama’s two published poems as a “semi-cruel exercise."

In a similar spirit, the Independent of London headlined its article on Obama’s early poetry, “Pop goes myth of Obama the young prodigy.”

It would be another decade before Obama had anything in print and this a heavily edited, unsigned student case comment in the Harvard Law Review unearthed by Politico.

Attorneys who reviewed the piece for Politico described it charitably as “a fairly standard example of the genre.”

Of note, Politico observes that “the temperate legal language doesn't display the rhetorical heights that run through his memoir, published a few years later.”

But then somehow, those few years later, this 33 year-old amateur with no paper trail beyond a hack legal note and a poem about fig-stomping apes produced what Time Magazine has called--with a straight face-- “the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.”

The public is asked to believe that Obama did this on his own, almost as though he were some sort of literary idiot savant. I don’t buy this canard for a minute.

Biden's List of Lies From The VP Debate

Assist from CNN helps cover up "Lies" and "Mis-statements"

Biden Better Than You Whatever happened to objective journalism in this country anyway?  Isn't it bad enough that Gwen Ifill hid the fact that she was releasing a pro-Obama book in January 2009 - on Inauguration day? Now we have CNN and other members of the "mainstream media" covering up his lies and deceptions.

This video from Breitbart.TV is a compilation of Biden's gaffe's, lies and mis-statements from the VP debate.  (Credit Breitbart)

 Most notable:

- Katies Restaurant hasn't been in business for 15 years.  That would make it hard to go with Biden to Katies to talk to his constituents.

- "Joey" Danko would do anything for Joe Biden, but wouldn't talk about his financial situation and why he couldn't state the cost of a gallon of gas.

- "Barak (Obama) never said he'd sit down with the President of Iran" (when in fact Obama did)

- "Go into Home Depot where I spend alot of time" - None of Home Depot's in or near Wilmington Delaware can verify Biden had ever been there.

There are of course more - but after this latest list of lies, gaffe's and mis-statements why should the American Public trust Joe Biden?

The fact is, Joe Biden isn't ready to be Vice President!

Burning Down The House!

Who Really Caused This Mess?  The Truth Democrats Dont' Want You To Know ...


Note: I am not the original author of the above video.  YouTube originally pulled this video due to a complaint from Warner Brothers for Copyright infringement.  Apparently, Warner Brothers doesn't understand the "Fair Use" clause, nor do they seemingly know that the Video's for the songs in this video are posted ALL OVER YouTube.

One last comment: Warner Brothers bundled almost $340,000 in donations to Barak Hussein Obama.  Think they have a "vested interest" in their music not being used to expose the sham that is the Obama Candidacy and the Democrat Party?

Just a thought ...
