So why is this a story?

I don’t know about you – but shouldn’t AP be reporting the news?

The first thing you notice is that this CNN story says it cannot verify what it is saying – so why is it a headline story on their political site?

CNN has not been able to independently verify her immigration status. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Kelly Nantel said the agency “is prohibited from commenting on any individual’s status.”

But they still run with it.

AP has come out more and more with certain bias – so has CNN with their reporting – all this from the “Best Political Team on TV”?

Democratic U.S. Rep. John Conyers of Michigan fired off a letter asking Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff to investigate whether someone leaked the information to the media in an effort to damage Obama.

The AP reports that it ‘could not establish whether anyone at a political level in the Bush administration or in the McCain campaign had been involved,’ a very disturbing (suggestion) indeed,” read the letter from Conyers, who is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

This leak is deplorable and I urge you to take immediate action to investigate and discipline those responsible.”

The Department of Homeland Security had no immediate response to the letter.

So, we see that even the current Administration could be involved in the election process – not that you would have Bush on the stumps for McCain – but his insiders working to spoil the election for those who want someone else other than John McCain in the White House – you can trust John McCain!?


In his book, Obama writes of meeting his aunt when he visited Kenya as a young man.

“A tall, brown-skinned woman was smiling beside us, and Auma [Obama’s half-sister] turned and said, ‘Barack, this is Auntie Zeituni. Our father’s sister,” Obama wrote.

“‘Welcome home,’ Zeituni said, kissing me on both cheeks.”

It is not clear when Onyango arrived in the United States.

So, again, no one knows when she arrived in the US and Barack Obama was a young kid when he met her.

The McCain campaign stinks! Why, if this is the case of bringing up anything and everything on a persons life, why doesn’t CNN, AP all ask John McCain about his involvement with the Keating 5 – re-run that story – splash it all over the web – ask the McCain camp about it.

John McCain has done nothing but attack Barack Obama – never speaking about what he will do other than what he will do to line his own pocket.

Why don’t CNN and AP report on how much of a tax break John McCain and his wife will get under his own tax plans? Ask him how much George Bush will get under his tax plans?

No? Thought not – that is called, AP and CNN, political bias.

No Bias, No bull – my arse!

    Makes me think,
    Sat in a Church for 20 years but didn’t know Wright was a racist, Did business with Ayers for 15 years but didn’t know he was a terrioist. Bought property from Resko but didn’t know he was shady. Didn’t know Dr. Khalid Abdullah was anti Semite. Didn’n know Auntie Zeituni is here illegally (living in Public Housing and contributing to his campaign illegally). Sent a Director from his campaign to a meeting with Islamic Terriost but didn’t know. Seems to me he doesn’t know some very important things….or did he and is not being honest! Obama is a dangerous man!

  2. Sean says:

    Howard, when have you EVER asked for this much background on any candidate? Do you have any or all of these for McCain?

    I can’t help but think a little of this has to do with the following:
    1. Senator Obama’s full name
    2. Senator Obama’s race
    3. The Republican candidates are both reprehensible and you’re grasping at whatever you can

  3. Nicolino Sciscente says:

    AP now has removed the article from their website……they won’t release the leaker so I guess they took it out…out of shame!!!!!!

  4. Jim says:

    Why is this a Story ?

    Because the leftest media won’t report something
    very important to every citizen in the United
    States of America:

    Obama’s not a U.S. Citizen ! If he is, why
    can’t he show his U.S. Birth Certificate ?


  5. Jim says:


  6. Lola says:

    Obama is not a US citizen? Considering that the process of running for President is more detailed than filing for a top secret security clearance, can you just admit that you are grasping at straws a little? Or just being really ignorant? You pick.

  7. Jim says:


    It’s unfortunate that our country has
    deteriorated to now contain stupid people like
    you, who reach their own conclusions, without
    being aware of current events.

    I guess you know more about Constitutional Law
    than Philip J. Berg, former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania, and practicing Attorney for
    37 years ?

    You should be deported to France !

  8. No Mccain says:

    So, what’s the big deal? There are millions of illegal immigrants in this country. One in Obama’s family is not surprising, given his ethnically diverse background. Also, it is simply an accurate representation of this country – where immigrants from all over the world come to live to start a new life. A denial of this historic fact, is a denial of reality.
    This country was not founded as being the United States of white America – they could have, but were smart not to write this clause in the Constitution.

  9. Arthur says:

    For an attorney, who graduated from a place where really really smart people get their degrees from, it is amazing about how much this smart guy doesn’t know; especially about what he has done, who he has been buddies with, and whether or not his family members are Americans or not. No wonder he had to be embarassed into wearing the American flag lapel pin!

    Damned liar!

  10. Will Rhodes says:

    No wonder he had to be embarassed into wearing the American flag lapel pin!

    And note, John McCain doesn’t wear one, ever – and that was even during the 9/11 commemoration.

    All hail Caesar!

  11. bluephilly says:

    First of all CNN is calling it an October surprise but this is November. Why are they always attacking Obama for things other people do or say? This is like people saying they will not vote for McCain because his family once owned slaves. McCain didn’t own slaves himself. It was his family. But the two incidents are examples that can be used by either candidate against the other. So why bother. They cancel each other out in my opinion.

  12. NC Guy says:

    I would really hate to be a part of the Obama family. He is always bringing up that the Rebublican are greety but looks like Obama would rather send money on any and everything except his family. So do we stand a chance if he is elected? Hopefully he want treat the American public like his family

  13. rick says:

    LOL!! boy some of you people on here must be some real benzo addicts as many sleepless nights Obama’s skin color is causing you all. What sorry excuses for human beings some of you people are.

  14. JackOfHeart says:

    Who cares. The reason McCain is not winning is because his winning strategy is by trying to defame Obama and its not working and its showing how actually that Obama is even a better person. PEACE = DEPORT BUSH, McCAIN AND PALIN TO ISRAEL, They will make great presidents there. “CHANGE”= Foreign interest lobbies out of D.C.

  16. fox says:

    Everything in politics is fair game. Gary Heart who was thought to be the next president had to drop out because he happened to be on a boat with another woman. This is the job for the highest office in this country. A job where that relies heavily on the fact that your aware of most everything. He also didn’t know Rev Wright was head of a the most Racist Church in america and whom is a Radical Left Wingist. He also didn’t know Bill Ayers his neighbor was a terrorist. I won’t go on about the other things he didn’t know. Now he didn’t know that his Aunt whom he wrote about in his book was not a citizen. He sure doesn’t know much and these are people right under his nose.
    This is not about the color of anybody’s skin. If this guy didn’t have such a questionable background and had actually done something in Illinois I might be on board with him. Fact of the matter is, taxes are the highest there, schools are the worst in the nation. If he can’t help his own area, how in the world is going to help the country. He is a charismatic preacher that is preaching hope a world of people who are down and out. They are raising their arms like they were in church and he is touching their souls. I like Joel Olsteen as a preacher cause he is so inspirational, but I’m not going to vote for him for president because of the inspiration he brings. We need a leader !!!!
    One who knows what is going on around him and one who knows how to get the job done. Not someone who has done nothing but inspire and doesn’t have a clue about the people closest to him. The same idiots who voted Bush in will be the same idiots that vote Obama in. I’m Republican, but I had way more sense than to vote for that moron. I voted Democrat both times.

  17. PiedType says:

    Seems to me if the aunt’s immigration status can’t be confirmed, it’s a rumor, not news. Either way, it’s not relevant.

  18. Jim says:

    Very Nicely Written ! I couldn’t agree more.
    I am an independent.
    Like you, I voted democrat for the last
    two elections. I always look at a candidate’s
    background, behind the person speaking. I don’t care
    care what color skin / nationality they are. I
    wanted Colin Powell to run for President, yet
    I was surprised when when he endorsed Obama.
    However, it’s not the best person who gets the
    job, its the person who sells himself the best.
    Bush won the 2000 election because he had more
    carisma, just like Obama does. It is really
    scary how many Americans vote on a candidate’s carisma and
    carisma & words alone. I also agree with you
    that the same idiots who voted Bush in office
    will vote Obama in. There are too many SHEEPLE
    in the U.S. who can’t tell the difference
    between media reporting and the facts. If these
    people would be any smarter, they would be
    chairs !

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
