obama's aunt living illegally in US, too
from dpa: The campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has said he wasn't aware that his Kenyan aunt was reportedly living in the US illegally, the Washington Post reported Sunday. The news about Zeituni Onyango, who is referred to as aunty Zeituni in Obama's memoir, surfaced just as the presidential candidates start counting down hours, not days, to Tuesday's election. Some Democrats have alluded to the fact that the timing of the disclosure seems politically motivated, as it was apparently leaked to a media outlet by a government official. Obama's Republican rival John McCain did not raise the issue on the campaign trail Saturday. Obama's campaign said the Illinois senator had no knowledge of her immigration status and that 'any and all appropriate laws' should be followed, the report said. 'They've talked from time to time. She's been in and out of his life. He didn't even know she was in the country,' Obama's spokesman Bill Burton told broadcaster MSNBC. Onyango, 56, is Obama's father's half-sister. The senator, who grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii, first met his aunt when he travelled to Africa as an adult.
brzezinski: obama will face 'imminent' foreign policy problems
from paul joseph watson: Trilateral Commission co-founder and top Obama advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski told CNN yesterday that Barack Obama would be faced with “imminent problems” in the context of foreign policy once he takes office, echoing prophetic warnings made recently by Joe Biden, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright. Appearing on CNN’s Global Public Square with host Fareed Zakaria, Brzezinski said that President Carter contacted him to ask who he should appoint to different posts after he captured the White House, perhaps a hint that Obama might do the same. “The president at one point called me, and rather cleverly asked me who I thought ought to occupy what posts. And I gave him advice. And I finally came to the post of national security adviser,” said Brzezinski, adding that Carter offered him the position. Zakaria asked Brzezinski if the president-elect should “start sending signals to foreign governments... I think it depends on two things - one, on the nature of the president himself, and, two, on the circumstances,” Brzezinski responded. “I think what is going on right now - which is nothing less than a global crisis of American leadership, nothing less than that - I think the president-elect, whoever he is - and I have my own preference - will have to start sending signals right away, and will have to get ready to deal with some imminent problems.”
'the men behind barack obama'
from deepjournal: Especially in politics it is of the utmost importance to try to look behind the facade: who makes up the team of the presidential candidate? The future president of the United States of America is for a large part dependent on and being fed by his team of advisors and future cabinet members. Webster Tarpley wrote a book on the men and women behind presidential hopeful Barack Obama. He argues that there is more to Obama than his charismatic appearance and that some of his advisors pose a danger to the US and the world in case Obama might be elected to become the next US president. Whether Tarpley's view is correct for now is a matter of opinion and remains to be seen, but for the public debate it is relevant to take note of his facts and arguments. Therefore, DeepJournal interviewed Webster Tarpley on the topic of his recently published book 'Obama, The Postmodern Coup, The Making of a Manchurian Candidate'.
obama: govt should 'change behavior' by raising energy bills
from kurt nimmo: In the video here, taped in 2007, Barack Obama told public television in Iowa “it is indisputable that the climate is getting warmer” and the government should jack up energy bills up through “price signals” in order to force Americans to accept the globalist agenda. “I think it is important for us to send some price signals to change behavior. You know, if electricity goes up, people start becoming more mindful of their electricity bill,” Obama told Associated Press reporter Mike Glover. Should we expect Obama to revise his contention about global warming now that all four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA’s GISS, UAH, RSS) have released data indicating that over the past year global temperatures have dropped precipitously? Will Obama now admit that solar activity is a much larger driver of climate change than selfish Americans driving SUVs or leaving the lights on? No, because that does not jive with the austerity and impoverishment agenda of our rulers. “We must address the global climate crisis with a single voice, and impose rules that apply worldwide,” declared General Lord Guthrie, director of N.M. Rothschild & Sons, at a secretive Trilateral Commission meeting last year. Guthrie’s use of the word “impose” is not incidental. “We cannot address this crisis as 180 separate nation-states. We must act as a single world state.” In other words, the globalists plan to use the cooked up - or maybe it should be cooled down - climate ruse to usher in a one world government.
nader presses mccain on uss liberty attack
from knight ridder: Adding to his usual criticisms of the "corporate candidates" from the two major parties, independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader yesterday introduced a wrinkle, calling on John McCain to come clean about Israel's 1967 attack on the USS Liberty. "He doesn't like to have his character impugned. I'm challenging his character on this point," Nader said in a news conference at the Statehouse. McCain was not involved in the incident, which killed 34 American sailors amid the Six-Day War between Israel and several Arab nations. Israel said the attack was a case of mistaken identity, and McCain's father, Adm. John S. McCain Jr., approved an investigation that determined the incident was a mistake. Nader is among those who think the report was a cover-up. He's dragging McCain into it because the senator wrote a positive note on a 2002 book, The Liberty Incident, that also concluded the attack was an accident. "He has been asked again and again by these Sailors and their families to come clean," Nader said. "Instead, he endorses a propaganda book that says it was accidental. That reflects on his character." The McCain campaign declined to respond.
