    News? What news? Non story for a lib!

    1/2 Brother, can you spare a dime

    Help Obama's Half-Brother Move Out of His Hut
    by Dinesh D'Souza


    The biggest scandal of the election campaign is going unreported, for the most part, by the mainstream newspapers and TV shows. Imagine if John McCain or Sarah Palin had a half-brother who was living in a hut. Imagine if McCain, a multimillionaire, did nothing to help the guy. Imagine if McCain came to the convention and spoke incessantly about compassion and how he was inspired by the biblical mandate: we are our brothers' keepers! This would be the lead story on the evening news.


    So why aren't the networks covering the fact that Barack Obama's half-brother George lives in a 6 by 10 foot hut in the slums of Kenya? It took a reporter for the Italian edition of Vanity Fair to locate George Obama. Obama noted that when he met his famous half-brother in 2006 “we spoke for just a few minutes. It was like meeting a complete stranger.” George Obama also told the magazine that “I live here on less than a dollar month,” and “if anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related. I am ashamed.” Obama has done absolutely nothing to help his unfortunate half-brother.

    Apparently alarmed that this report could hurt Obama, CNN dispatched one of its reporters to do cover-up work for the Obama campaign. This is a hopeless enterprise; anyone who sees pictures of George Obama's dwelling place on the web knows that they reveal the worst images of African poverty. Moreover, for all its propagandistic intent, the CNN report is unintentionally damaging to Obama. The reporter cannot hide the fact that George Obama comes from a "ramshackled slum." A neighbor tells CNN that Barack Obama really should connect with his half-brother and "see how he's living" and do what he can to "improve our way of life."

    CNN attempts to portray George Obama as a self-reliant fellow who doesn't want any help. The network quotes him saying, "I was brought up well. I live well even now." George, however, speaks in a halting voice; he is trying to maintain his self-image. George also says, "I'm Kenyan...I would love to live in Kenya." Presumably George gave this answer to a question asking whether he'd like to move to the United States with Barack Obama's help. These answers, however, in no way suggest that George doesn't want Barack Obama's intervention to relieve his grinding poverty. A man's effort to maintain his dignity should not be exploited to pretend that he doesn't want a helping hand.

    When I posted on my AOL blog about George Obama last week, the Obama apologists could do no better than to say that Barack Obama doesn't owe his half-brother anything. But sibling assistance is not a matter of debt. Rather, it is a matter of family values and compassion. Obama has cited as his favorite Bible verse Jesus's statement: whatever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me. It seems that the Republican allegation that this man is full of pretense and empty words--in other words, a modern-day Pharisee--is more than justified.

    Obama may not want to help his 26 year old half-brother, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't. I'm starting the George Obama Compassion Fund which has the goal of raising some money to help George Obama move out of his one-room hut. George also wants to become a mechanic and surely he could use some funds to get the training he needs to fulfill his humble aspirations. Currently George lives on a few dollars a month. Even a few thousand dollars would completely transform this man's life.

    I'm putting up $1000 to get this fund started. I invite people to send me small contributions--$5, $10, $25, whatever you can spare. Send them to P.O. Box 3384, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067. Make your checks to "George Obama." I will then contact the Obama campaign and offer them the money on the condition that they forward it to George Obama in Kenya. The advantage of this approach is that not only does George Obama benefit from our generosity, but also Barack Obama can use the opportunity to improve his relationship with his half-brother. Let's foster Obama family values, and give a break to a guy who really needs it.

    It's not like it would hurt Barry to spend a few thousand to send the man to college. If you are your brothers keeper - you need to start keeping your own blood brothers.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    How many half-brothers does he have, anyway? It's getting to sound like the Obama bin Laden family tree!

    I had to see if George was the same one who insisted Barack was a Muslim.

    Nope...that was Malik, seen here with a family picture:

    I can think of just 2 off the top of my head: Dikembe Mutombo of Houston Rockets fame and *ahem* Oprah. The main difference between the two is that Mutombo seemed to really want to help his native Congo with the resources he had acquired. Kudos to Mutombo.

    Oprah, on the other hand, seems to fling her vast amount of money around just so that others will affirm how generous she is.

    Gurlfren really has no clue.

    As part of her "Favorite Things" show in Macon, GA a while ago, she gave away some $10K to each audience member. Part of that haul was a $4300 refrigerator. If you know anything about Macon, you'd know that many of the people in that audience lived in run-down shacks worth no more than $30K. How out-of-touch are you to give $4300 refrigerators to people at such poverty levels?

    And many are coming home and going elsewhere.

    As one who was with World Vision said "We're spinning our wheels and wasting time.The place is a basket case....I'm lucky to come home alive. no way do I go back"

    Why bother. Let the place fall apart. About time they learned to help themselves.

    considering how 'randy' Obama's daddy was , I'm sure Obama has a whole lotta' half brothers and sisters running around the planet.

    Lovely bunch, aren't they?

    Someone should start a website - contributions for Obama's 1/2 brother.
    That would have legs!

    People do need to be self-sufficient, but Obama could give the guy a helping hand. A few thousand dollars could help George get an education and become self-sufficient. I guess Obama was absent from his church when they gave that Jesus and the loaves and fishes class. It's sad.
