Between 2000 and 2004 Obama gave 1% of his income to charity, 5% in 2005 and 2006 after he published his book.
His half-brother survives on $1 a month (see story).
Obama’s You Tube channel will not allow comments that criticize, they must be favorable and always supportive.
What do you think he will do for the 300 million Americans living in the US?
As they say, you will know them by their deeds.
Shame on Obama and shame on the Democrats for offering the American people such a heartless man.
And shame on any American who reads this and still votes for this man.
Obama’s half-brother to Vanity Fair: ‘No one knows I exist’
NAIROBI, KENYA | Obama’s half-brother calls a shack home and lives on less than $1 a month
The photograph shows a young, unsmiling man standing in front of a jagged fence built from scraps of timber and rusted bits of corrugated metal.
The 26-year-old man is outside his shanty home on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya.
He survives on less than $1 a month.
He says he is Barack Obama’s half-brother.
“I live like a recluse,” George Hussein Onyango Obama says in an article published in the latest edition of the Italian-language Vanity Fair. “No one knows I exist.”
While the junior Illinois senator is plotting a course for the White House, his half brother lives in an African shanty, the article says.
Barack Obama has written and spoken often about his Kenyan roots and his half-siblings.
In the book Dreams from My Father, Obama identified eight half-brothers and sisters from four other marriages or relationships of his parents. George was the youngest, the only child of Obama’s father and a woman not named in the book.
Barack Obama wrote of a brief meeting with George during a trip to Kenya in the late 1980s. The visit outside the boy’s school “turned out be a painful affair, arranged hastily and without the mother’s knowledge.” Barack Obama described a “handsome, round-headed boy with a wary gaze.”
George Obama says he was that 5-year-old boy, according to the Vanity Fair piece. George Obama says he remembers little of the meeting.
George Obama says he again saw his famous half-brother two years ago, when Obama traveled to Africa with his wife and daughters.
“It was a short meeting,” George Obama recalled. “We spoke to each other. It was odd — like meeting a stranger.”
Barack Obama’s campaign had no comment on the Vanity Fair piece.
Based on the article, it appears George Obama has more pressing concerns than his half-brother’s presidential bid.
George Obama showed the Vanity Fair reporter the inside of his tiny shack, which contains — among other things — two Italian soccer posters, an old beach-scene calendar and the front page of a local newspaper with a photograph of Barack Obama on it.
George Obama says he leads a hard life in a community rife with violence. He talks of people being hacked to death with machetes. He says the police don’t bother to arrest people — they just shoot them instead.
He says he’s seen two of his friends killed. He says he has scars on his skin from fighting.
“I am good with my fists,” he says.
