Find Obama’s Aunt On NYT’s Front Page

Behold the front page of today’s “national edition” of the New York Times:

Remember, this is the same “newspaper” that featured photos and articles about Abu Ghraib on the front page above the fold for 32 days in a row.

But, no, stories about the rich not buying caviar for the holidays beat out any mention of Mr. Obama’s illegal alien aunt.

The only mention of “Aunt Zeituni” in today’s issue appears to be the Associated Press article we have previously posted about how Mr. Obama knew nothing about his aunt.

And even that was buried in The Times’ “Washington Section.” (And might not even appear in the print edition.)

Indeed, when The Times first deigned to mention this story, it was buried in its seldom-visited (online) “Opinionator” section:

Family Ties

By Tobin Harshaw

October 30, 2008

Barack Obama’s past simply won’t leave his present alone, and the latest fascinating distraction come from the Times of London:

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…

And note that The Times used the very same word that Mr. Obama likes to use about any bad news.

They call it a “distraction.”

Weirdly, a Google search of the New York Times website for Zeituni still returns no hits.

And a similar search for Onyango has nothing about Mr. Obama’s aunt.

Mind you, this is the self-described “newspaper of record.”

    It’s more important to raise the specter of “deflation” 4 days before the election than the distraction of someone’s aunt who American’s selfishly refuse to be fair to.

    That way, it should be clear that the country can only survive with 0% inflation.

    Inflation is a disaster. Deflation is a disaster. Nothing but a miracle will prevent the country from falling apart.

    And in addition, the paper of record needs to remind America that “the hopefuls” both reject Gay Marraige (since the Gay vote is locked up already).

    Is the concept of irony over your head? Sounds like it is.

    Anyone want to take a trip down Obama Memory Lane? Here’s a good story from the Iowa primary that hasn’t been scrubbed yet, courtesy of the NY Daily News:


    “I’m No Muslim” says Barry—

    “Obama explained his faith to Michael over tea and pumpkin pie at the Smokey Row coffeehouse.

    “My father was from Kenya, and a lot of people in his village were Muslim. He didn’t practice Islam. Truth is he wasn’t very religious. He met my mother. My mother was a Christian from Kansas,” Obama said. “I’ve always been a Christian…. The only connection I’ve had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father’s side came from that country. But I’ve never practiced Islam.”

    Obama told Michael that he lived in Indonesia, a Muslim country, as a child because his mother was teaching there. ”

    Uhhh, Barry. . .aren’t you forgetting about an Indonesian step-father?

  5. VMAN says:

    Grandpa was a Muslim but daddy wasn’t? Isn’t that a big no no in the Muslim world? Wasn’t step daddy a Muslim? I think so!!!. He lived in Indonesia for almost 12 years. Isn’t that the largest Muslim country on earth? Maybe he’s not a Muslim but given his history I would think that he would be very sympathetic to Islam.

  6. 1sttofight says:

    His mama was a slut that no white man would touch and his daddy was looking for a free ride with benifits, thus Barry came into the world. All praise him.

    proreason, Liberals Demise was not aiming at you with his comment, but at the N.Y. Slimes reporters.

  8. JohnMG says:

    …..”My father was from Kenya…………… My mother was a Christian…….”

    No, Barry, your father was a horny black-African bigamist on the make, lookin’ for a little white “trophy tail” when he glommed onto your mother, who happened to be a Communist-sympathizing pig from Kansas.

    Although I must admit, she didn’t look too bad if you put enough lipstick on her.

  9. gaeliccory says:

    JohnMG…..exactly my thoughts…halarious. His mother was no Christian…just a whore, who slept with a sick little black man from Kenya. I have always wondered why Oscuma would write books on how wonderful his father was. All he ever did was donate sperm. There is something wrong with that. How can anyone have such high thoughts about such a creep?

  10. Icarus says:

    There is an ideological antithesis here in America that has progressively evolved to a perilous degree!
    Whatever happens Tuesday… it will do nothing to decelerate , bring to a halt; much less reverse course away from a dreaded yet inevitable conclusion. In the end it really has nothing (personally) to do with Obama, but rather with what his party ideologically symbolizes.

    Reagan excerpts from the Annual Convention of the National Association of Evangelicals Orlando, Florida March 8, 1983

    The American experiment in democracy rests on this insight. Its discovery was the great triumph of our Founding Fathers, voiced by William Penn when he said: “If we will not be governed by God, we must be governed by tyrants.”

    A number of years ago, I heard a young father, a very prominent young man in the entertainment world, addressing a tremendous gathering in California. It was during the time of the cold war, and communism and our own way of life were very much on people’s minds. And he was speaking to that subject. And suddenly, though, I heard him saying, “I love my little girls more than anything -” And I said to myself, “Oh, no, don’t. You can’t – don’t say that.” But I had underestimated him. He went on: “I would rather see my little girls die now, still believing in God, than have them grow up under communism and one day die no longer believing in God.”

    Yes, let us pray for the salvation of all of those who live in that totalitarian darkness – pray they will discover the joy of knowing God. But until they do, let us be aware that while they preach the supremacy of the state, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern world.

    Whittaker Chambers, the man whose own religious conversation made him a witness to one of the terrible traumas of our time, the Hiss-Chambers case, wrote that the crisis of the Western world exists to the degree in which the West is indifferent to God, the degree to which it collaborates in communism’s attempt to make man stand alone without God. And then he said, for Marxism-Leninism is actually the second-oldest faith, first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden with the words of temptation, “Ye shall be as gods.”

    The Western world can answer this challenge, he wrote, “but only provided that its faith in God and the freedom He enjoins is as great as communism’s faith in Man.”

    Whatever happend to sanity?

  11. JannyMae says:

    Your link to the Tobin Harshaw, “Family Ties,” story is not valid, although it is still there.

    I wonder if we could find out if that, “Obama doesn’t know,” story was in the print edition…or not. I have an argument going with a moonbat that this story will not be given any credence by the MSM.

    His dad didn’t even rush home to take him trick or treating.

  13. imnewatthis says:

    Regarding that article from 2007, what I’ve read in the past was that Obama’s mother was not a believing Christian, that Barack was not really raised in any faith, and that he wasn’t really Christian until he decided to join Wright’s church. Which is all fine, if only he’d be truthful about it.
    Personally I don’t see the point in calling his mother a slut, and I doubt that “no white man would have her”. More likely she was one of those people who is drawn to the most exotic, different, foreign people (and in some cases, anti-American) partners they can find. Besides, to say no white man would have her(but a black man would) implies black men are somehow worse and have no standards. I thought we were the good guys, the “I judge each person on their own merits and not their skin color ” guys.

  14. wardmama4 says:

    According to Obama himself his mother while not practicing any particular religion did provide and/or read from the Bible and the Koran (and some other – probably eastern religious text). He claims his mother was raised Christian, was an atheist, was a communist, was the most spiritual person he ever met. . .He claims his father was born in a Muslim village but never was muslim, was an agnostic, was not religious but the family (Africian) buried BHO Sr in a muslim ceremony. . .Obama claims he was not raised muslim, was raised a Christian, was not religious until joining TUCC, did not know about Rev Wright before joining TUCC, read about Rev Wright and the TUCC ‘About Us’ BLT before even attending the church the first time (Dreams from my Father), attended both a Catholic and muslim school in Indonesia, attended Koran classes and mosque, recited muslim prayers in Arabic, and has always been a Christian.

    In the immortal words of a great Orator: ‘Words, just words.’

  15. JohnMG says:

    Didn’t say black men were worse—I said he was a bigamist (fact) who chased anything female.

    Didn’t say no one would have her—I said she was a Commie-sympathizing pig (fact), and alluded to the “Big O’s” statement about lipstick-on-pigs.

    That’s all. ;-}

  16. Liberals Demise says:

    Thanks DEZ….Proreason….I wasn’t slamming you my friend. No harm done or meant here!! Hobammies pappy was a DEADBEAT DADDY to boot. He drools over the fact that isn’t there and reaching for straws if he thinks his pappy was anything else. I have to admit….This is some funny stuff you all are thinking. Keep at it…..
