Barack Obama's uncle has been arrested and held as illegal immigrant
The Australian ^ | August 29, 2011 | James Bone and Catherine Philp

Posted on 08/29/2011 8:44:29 AM PDT by americanophile

BARACK Obama's long-lost "Uncle Omar" has been arrested for alleged drink-driving outside Boston and detained as an illegal immigrant, The Times can reveal. The arrest ends a mystery over the fate of a relative that the US President wrote in his memoir had moved to America from Kenya in the 1960s, although the circumstances of his discovery may now prove to be an embarrassment for the White House.

Official records say Onyango Obama, 67, was picked up outside the Chicken Bone Saloon in Framingham, Massachusetts, at 7.10pm on August 24. Police say he nearly crashed his Mitsubishi 4x4 into a patrol car, and then insisted that the officer should have given way to him. A report filed with the Framingham District Court said that a breathalyser at the police station registered his blood alcohol at 0.14mg/100ml of blood, above the state limit of 0.08mg.

According to a local newspaper, Mr Obama was charged with driving under the influence and driving to endanger, as well as failing to use a turn signal. He was detained as an illegal immigrant because the US Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement has an outstanding warrant for him because he was previously ordered to be deported to Kenya.

The Times has established from his birthdate that Mr Obama is the Uncle Omar mentioned in President Obama's best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father. In the 1995 book, President Obama writes of "the uncle who had left for America 25 years ago and had never come back".

“wow!” should indeed be the response, but in America in 2011, the Obama-enabling media won’t cover the story, and half the citizenry has been cowed into believing that its a non-issue or that one is a “racist” for even considering it.

Debate Question for Barack Obama:

Mr. President, how many relatives, aunts, uncles, neices & nephews are living here in the United States illegally...

...and why haven’t they been deported?

he was previously ordered to be deported to Kenya

More of that marvelous family compassion the President exhibits towards his family...like his own brother living in a cardboard hut in Kenya.

Surely the President, with all his wealth, could have helped his uncle get back to Kenya safely and soundly, could have set up some kind of arrangement for him and the Presidnt's brother.

Instead, his uncle now nearly kills people while drunk driving as an illegal alien in this country.

The irony, the hypocracy, and the lack of desire to help his own family all add up here. If he cannot and will not help his own family, it is clear he has no desire to help his country. Instead, as he has stated, his inention is to fundamentally and radically change (read "destroy") it.

Because, they vote Democratic whether legal or not. If it was, Bush the outcry would be deafening. Let’s see what our King decides to do with his illegal relatives and how the Royal Scribes will cover it up.

The case went to court a few months ago, and Auntie was actually given permission by the court in Boston to continue living here. I’m not expecting any different result in this case.

Obama’s illegal relatives keep showing up in America. A country Barack and Michelle hate. Sounds like a contridiction, doesn’t it? Except when you realize that it is all part of Barack’s plan...drain the pockets of the priviledged and give to those who don’t work, don’t care, and don’t live here legally. Put them on the taxpayers’ dime, and let them vote. Eventually everyone will be equally dependent on the government - and the Socialist elite will rule the serfs.

If we start deporting the presidents family, where does it end?

Maybe the president could just work remote, out of Kenya,
so he can be near his family in his home country as he likes to say.

It must suck having to go to a foreign country to get a job.

I recall during the Bush administration, a short-lived TV comedy about the Bush family. On the nose, dull, liberal “satire” of the worst sort.

But the Obamas are comedy gold. Of course, nobody will mine it. But they’re gold.

I’m not sure which party to throw: The landslide victory party in November 2012 or the ‘Don’t let let the screendoor hit ya where the good Lord split ya’ party in January 2013.

Either way, I can’t wait for this freakshow and all the yahoos associated with him get back on the shortbus and sulk back to Chicago where they can go back to doing absolutely nothing useful with their days.

Oh yeah, someone tell the Dr. that cloned Jimmy Carter that they didn’t get it quite right. They made it worse.
