Obama Step-Mom, Bro In Public Housing

Speaking of Mr. Obama’s relatives in public housing.

This article from the UK tabloid, The Sun got very little notice back in July:

[Sun caption:] Happy families … back row from left: Unknown, Barack Obama, half-brother Malik, unknown, half-brother Abo, Bernard. Front: Half-sister Auma, stepmum Kezia, stepgran Sarah, unknown

Obama’s brother is in Bracknell

By OLIVER HARVEY

Chief Feature Writer

HE may be living in a Bracknell council house, but soon he could be dining with his brother at the White House.

The Sun was the first newspaper to track down and speak to Bernard Obama, 37.

And he said of Democrat candidate Barack: “I’m very proud of my big brother.

“It’s quite a funny feeling that he might be the next President of the USA.”

Muslim Bernard — an avid Manchester United fan and Sun reader — is staying with his bingo-loving mum Kezia, 67, who has lived in the Berkshire new town for six years.

He was glued to the TV news in the modest suburban bungalow last night as Barack, 46, was due to arrive in Britain.

Bernard leads a quiet life, running a car parts firm in Nairobi, Kenya.

But he is a regular visitor to the UK to visit Elvis fan Kezia.

She married Barack Obama Snr in Kenya in 1957 when she was a teenager.

He later left for the US and went on to meet Ann Dunham, who gave birth to his now widely acclaimed son…

Barack Jnr was 21 and Bernard 12. He said: “Our father passed away when I was young and I didn’t get the chance to get to know him very well…

Bernard smiled when he spoke of his famous half-brother. He said:

I was around 17 when I first met Barack.

He was visiting Kenya and it was obvious from the way he spoke and his charisma that he was going to be a success.

He is charming, very good company and very charismatic.

I’ve met him since with his wife Michelle in Kenya. She’s very nice, a very strong and intelligent person. I don’t think we will see him on this visit to Britain. It’s official business and he’ll be very busy.

Bernard is remaining with Kezia for the next month as she recuperates from illness

Converted

Bernard converted to Islam 18 years ago. The dad of one said: “I’m a Muslim, I don’t deny it. My father was raised a Muslim.

“But it’s not an issue. I don’t know what all the hullabaloo is about.” …

In his biography, Dreams From My Father, Barack told of meeting Bernard in Kenya.

He wrote: “That sweetness, the lack of guile, made him seem much younger than his 17 years.

“As we stepped into the street, Bernard draped his arm over my shoulder. ‘It’s good to have a big brother around,’ he said, before waving goodbye and vanishing into the crowd.” …

Bernard agreed, saying: “Barack is going to win the election, definitely, and I want to be in the US for his inauguration.

“He will be a breath of fresh air for the world.”

It’s not clear from the article whether Bernard Obama or Kezia Obama are living in the United Kingdom legally.

(Which they may very well be, given that Kenya was/is a Commonwealth Country.)

But why should anyone care about such petty details?

    BO always looks photoshopped into every pic. He also looks like a tsitsi(sp) fly.

  2. DEZ says:

    Does Obama have a relative not feeding from the public tit?

  3. 1sttofight says:

    The whole damn family including Barry himself feeds from the public tit. Not to mention his James Brown looking wife too.

  4. DEZ says:

    Your right 1st, I just wonder if anybody in his family ever worked a day in their life.

  5. JohnMG says:

    tse-tse—but no matter. As near as I can tell, none of his “relatives” are remotely related. For all we know, they were spawned by some “were-hyena”, a voodoo/witchcraft superstition prevalent in that part of the world.

    But gee, isn’t it that we’re all just part of that big brotherhood of man? Kinda makes ya’ want to vomit!

  6. DEZ says:

    “How do you say “Dead Beat” in Kenyan?”

    Near as I can tell, OBAMA!

    OT but a good read anyway. Like a mind cleanser after the Obama family.

    The Sack Lunches

    I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be a long flight. ‘I’m glad I have a good book to read. Perhaps I will get a short nap,’ I thought.

    Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation. ‘Where are you headed?’ I asked the soldier seated nearest to me. ‘Chicago – to Great Lakes Base. We’ll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we’re being deployed to Iraq ‘

    After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for five dollars. It would be several hours before we reached Chicago, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time. As I reached for my wallet, I overheard soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch.

    ‘No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch.
    Probably wouldn’t be worth five bucks. I’ll wait till we get to
    Chicago ‘

    His friend agreed.

    I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty dollar bill. ‘Take a lunch to all those soldiers.’

    She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me.

    ‘My son was a soldier in Iraq; it’s almost like you are doing it for him.’

    Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, ‘Which do you like best beef or chicken?’ ‘Chicken,’ I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class. ‘This is your thanks.’

    After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room. A man stopped me. ‘I saw what you did. I want to be part of it. Here, take this.’ He handed me twenty-five dollars.

    Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he was not looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane. When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand, an said, ‘I want to shake your hand.’

    Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain’s hand. With a booming voice he said, ‘I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness I never forgot.’ I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the
    passengers.

    Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm.

    When we landed in Chicago I gathered my belongings and started to deplane.

    Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another twenty-five dollars!

    Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base. I walked over to them and handed them seventy-five dollars.

    ‘It will take you some time to reach the base. It will be about time for a sandwich. God Bless You.’

    Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow travelers. As I walked briskly to my car, whispered a prayer for their safe return.

    These soldiers were giving their all for our country. I could only give them a couple of meals. It seemed so little…

    A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America ‘ for an amount of’ up to and including my life.’ That is Honor, and there are way too many people in This country who no longer understand it.’

    Do you understand and appreciate what they are doing? Share this with a friend so we will never forget!

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    1sttofight….good read, my mom sent that to me last week. She still wears a shirt that says she is a “Proud Mom of a Marine”. She is in her late 70s and I haven’t been an “Active Marine” for 34 yrs. I love her even if she is voting for the Spawn of Stalin!!
    If you all love your FREEDOM……….Thank a Veteran!!!!

    Huunnhh, WTF??
    Barack Sr. left Kezia to nail Ann (the Obamessiah’s immaculate conceptioneress) yet Bernard is 9 years younger than the Anointed One?
    How in the name of Poseidon does that work??
    Think about it. Did Senior go back and pork Kezia after leaving her the first time?

    I attended public schools as a yonker but jeez, I don’t think my math or biology skills are, or were, that bad.

    Lovely picture. Nice poses. Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Ate-a-lemon-or-something. He definitely does not look happy to be there.

  11. imnewatthis says:

    Yes, I’m pretty sure Barack Sr. was first w/ Kezia, then he went to Hawaii and married Ann Dunham, then he went to Harvard leaving Ann and Barack Jr. behind but acquiring another lady there and brought her back to Africa, where he continued to sleep w/ Kezia on occasion. If memory serves.
