Obama’s Aunt Zeituni to America: Give it to me

This is perhaps the most amazing story you will ever see on how illegal immigrants have learned to game the system. President Obama’s Aunty Zeituni (yes, he’s her nephew) has scammed America for free housing, and disability checks to the tune of thousands of dollars. “You are here to help the poor and other women. And you have to give me my right.” Ummm, right. It is a must watch from WBZ-TV in Boston.

Howie Carr has had WBZ-TV reporter Jonathan Elias on his show and it has been stunning. She feels no remorse for scamming the American taxpayer for thousands, nor does she sound grateful. Instead she sees it all as her right … and her money. Maybe the best part of this entire interview, which Elias told Howie lasted hours, is that she never considered asking President Obama, worth millions, for help. Nor, apparently, did he offer. The apple my friends never falls far from the tree. Read it all here.

For years she lived illegally in Boston public housing. She’s unemployed, receiving nearly $700 a month in disability, and for nearly ten years was in this country illegally.

“I’m not the President’s obligation. I carry my own cross.”

That’s the problem; she hasn’t been carrying her own cross. The taxpayers have, and many are angry that she has been able to live on public assistance for so long, while others who paid into the system are denied those same benefits.

“It’s a great country,” she said. “It’s nice to live here. You can do whatever you want when you live here.”

Despite what’s she’s been given, Zeituni Onyango said flatly that she owes this country nothing in return. “But, it’s given you so much?” Elias asked. “So? It’s a free country under God,” was her terse response.

A few more tidbits before the video. Aunty Zeituni arrived illegally in this country in 2000. A judge ordered her deported in 2004. After her nephew became President the judge changed his mind … and then, Elias reports, he granted her asylum from Kenya. Only in America.

There are two more videos here and here. Watch em all.

    I found it amazing she had to use a teleprompter for her answers.

    <<The apple my friends never falls far from the tree.>>


    What does that mean?

    The President's family dynamics are not relevant. The Reagan's were estranged from their children during his presidency, Jimmy Carter had to remain distanced from his brother, as did Bill Clinton. Character and family relationships are separate issues.

    The prime mentality of an illegal immigrant with no morals or values, taking from hard-working taxpaying Americans.  Meanwhile she is in a shelter while the waiting list for Legal Americans are denied and no remorse.  Now multiply all the other illegals doing the same thing.  The fact that liberals see NO problem with taking/stealing says more than enough of how they fell about hard-working Americans.  The apple never falls far from the tree -> Gee someone else in the family seems to feel the same way about other peoples money too.  Take, Take, Take…..

    The point was that stand-up adult Americans would go to their family first for help rather than to the government. The Obamas however, firmly believe in a proto-communist society where everyone is an individual victim of capitalism along with racism and any other possible grievance. At the center is the idea that it is commendable to live off of the Man's (read not your family's) toil. I am stunned that any real American can possibly believe that an illegally resident alien has the right to be continually domicled in the US, given our tax dollars and ACT LIKE THEY DESERVE IT! I view this begging as a recognition of a complete uselessness to society, of being a ward of the state – a condition that is unendurable for any person of morals and pride.

    I'm also amazed at her being granted "asylum" because she could be a target in Kenya!!!  Why?  Because she's an ungrateful walking nightmare–?  What about Obama's half-brother, who we last heard was living in a hut?  Is he a target too?  Do we now have to bring over and support his whole extended family–?   Besides, now Kenya has a Marxist government, The Dream of their Family.  It is a utopia over there now, who will coddle and take care of her.  This is outrageous.  Hope and change only for those who believe in the culture of corruption.

    Not only has she taken advantage of the (broken) system, she has taken advantage of The Almighty God,  using God as her excuse to cheat.


    The reversal of the deportation action ordered by Judge Leonard Shapiro must be investigated!  Attorney General Martha Coakley, where is your investigation?  Congress, where is your investigation?  Interfering with a justice is an impeachable offense.  Heck, if they can drag Roger Clemens up there and then punish him for lying about something that at the time was legal, then they damn well better investigate this!


    This is disgusting!  It is America no more, folks!  The Dream is Dead!  Done!  Finished, Good-bye!!!

    Aunt Zeituni is a "gimme girl", pure and simple.  She should become a poster child for all that is wrong with our immigration system, and be summarily drop shipped back to Kenya.  I will contribute to that fund!

  8. Dimsdale on September 23, 2010 at 8:39 am

    chris: sure, character and family issues are separate, but this woman is an ILLEGAL ALIEN, or was before her nameless benefactors made the judge see the light.  The fact that she is the president's auntie just selects her out of millions of similar, equally indefensible cases, but doesn't change the facts.

  9. chris-os on September 23, 2010 at 9:38 am

    Well Dims, I agree with you-and thank you for agreeing with me on the "apple not falling far from the tree" comment which was decidedly out of line.

  10. JollyRoger on September 23, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    She's right- this is a great country!  We have working (indoor) toilets, you can order fish or chicken and it comes with the bones removed, you can drive around with the windows open and you don't have baboons climbing into your car, you can lay in bed and dial 911- and nice people come and deliver you to the emergency room- and you're first in line if you claim chest pain!!!  Sometimes I wish I were an illegal!

  11. Dimsdale on September 23, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Well, if they can't ask if you aren't a citizen, they surely can't ask if you are one.  Just change your name!  Enjoy the ride!


    Sing wth me: "everything's free in America….."!

    This is just one more example of how the system is so broken but the question is who keeps breaking it every time we think we have the right repair? The Government loves people to feel like a bunch of dependents, they love having people feel like a bunch of victims, all the more votes for them to keep them in office. The big problem here is too much of the give me crowd has taken from the have some crowd and now we are seeing the have some's are becoming have only a little, soon to have none left, then what will our give me crowd do? We are at the breaking point.

  13. JollyRoger on September 23, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    Considering the richness of her experience, her ability to understand a logic which is incomprehensible to most working people, and her overall view on things- I feel, and I'm sure she would agree, we have an obligation to make her a supreme court justice!

  14. Wind on September 23, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    Wow…I guess arrogance really does run in the family.  Jolly I am still laughing at your post…but we have baboons here too….they are called Liberals.

  15. Tbone McGraw on September 23, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    Another "Poor Me Baby", the world owes me a living group. This is what liberal policies create. Best part, according to her, its God keeping her on the dole!

    It's not a sin to be poor, but it's a sin to stay that way! With all this country has to offer, a little hard work goes a long way. More liberal ideals on all the hungry people in this world. When is the last time anyone has been down to the local welfare office? My work has me their often, there sure are a lot of fat, starving people there…Sad, just sad

  16. NH-Jim on September 24, 2010 at 3:42 am

    I think Auntie believes only this:

    If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

    –Matthew 21:22, NIV

    Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

    –Mark 11:24, NIV

    But, she forgets this:

    He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.

    (Proverbs 28:19)

  17. Lucinda on September 24, 2010 at 7:45 am

    and she also forgot this:


    For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. (emphasis mine)

    2 Thessalonians 3:10 (KJV)

  18. winnie888 on September 25, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    Jesus Christ paid her legal fees?  And paid for her food, too?  I have never heard the U.S. government or the taxpayers likened to Jesus Christ…guess there's a first time for everything!
    Perfect cartoon for Auntie Zeituni…

    Lawrence Harmon, an opinion writer for the Boston Globe, has an excellent article on the problems of state (MA) housing and why bloodsuckers like Aunt Zeituni are such a problem in the Bay State: http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/editorial_opini….
