Report: Obama’s Uncle Arrested For Drunk Driving In Framingham (Big media picks up story)
CBS Boston (WBZ-TV 4/ AM 1030) ^ | 8/29/11 | CBS

Posted on 08/29/2011 10:51:54 AM PDT by raccoonradio

BOSTON (CBS) – An illegal immigrant from Kenya who was arrested for drunk driving in Framingham recently is reportedly an uncle of President Barack Obama.

67-year-old Onyango Obama was arrested last Wednesday, August 24 after police say he nearly ran his SUV into a police cruiser and later failed several sobriety tests.

According to the MetroWest Daily News, he pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Thursday, but he was ordered held without bail because there is a federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement warrant for his arrest.

The federal agency has previously ordered him to be deported back to Kenya.

According to a report Monday in the Australian, Obama is the uncle of the president.

Here is an excerpt from that article:

The (London) 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”.

In 2008, The Times mounted a search for Uncle Omar. Instead of finding him, we discovered his sister, President Obama’s Auntie Zeituni, who was living as an illegal immigrant on a Boston housing estate. Uncle Omar and Auntie Zeituni are the children of President Obama’s grandfather Hussein Onyango Obama, by his third wife Sarah, the woman President Obama calls “Granny”, because she raised his father, Barack Sr, who was Hussein Obama’s son by Hussein’s second wife, Akumu.

The paper said Onyango Obama is represented by Margaret Wong, the same Cleveland-based attorney who helped Zeituni Onyango get asylum in the United States last year.

Zeituni lived for years illegally in South Boston. She told WBZ-TV in September 2010 after being granted asylum that the United States has an “obligation” to grant her citizenship.

In Californian illegal aliens arrested for drunk driving are routinely deported. Let’s see what happens in this case.

Try this. When you go to the main CBS Boston page it has a pic of the Prez and the headline: Obama: Uncle arrested?
I clicked on it and got the following link, which goes to that page.

Off topic but he looks like a joke with that nameplate in front of him and his title. Kind of like when he had the fake sign on the podium, ‘Office of the President-Elect’.

Anything to look important and knowledgeable. FAIL.

from one of the comments on the original Metrowest Daily News article (Fri.? Sat.?)

>>Framinghamnorth75, Auntie Z didn’t leave and ignored the fact that she was told to go back to her own country. She was given citizenship because of her idiot nephew and now she is once again free to continue to suck our paychecks dry like she’s been doing all the years she wasn’t even supposed to be living in this country. Afterall, we owe her, it’s OUR obligation....remember?

Hmm! btw sent an email to Drudge with the story—I’m sure many others did too—and it is on Drudge today; linked to a paper in —Australia? Crikey!

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/barack-obamas-uncle-has-been-arrested-and-held-as-illegal-immigrant/story-e6frg6so-1226124269032

Barack Obama’s uncle has been arrested and held as illegal immigrant
(following: pic of Auntie Z at an immigration hearing)

>>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.

[Note: I have been in there! I was there last year to see NYC blues band the Gas House Gorillas. Try the steak tips!—raccoonradio)

>>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”.
In 2008, The Times mounted a search for Uncle Omar. Instead of finding him, we discovered his sister, President Obama’s Auntie Zeituni, who was living as an illegal immigrant on a Boston housing estate. Uncle Omar and Auntie Zeituni are the children of President Obama’s grandfather Hussein Onyango Obama, by his third wife Sarah, the woman President Obama calls “Granny”, because she raised his father, Barack Sr, who was Hussein Obama’s son by Hussein’s second wife, Akumu.

The 2008 investigation unearthed public records naming an O. Onyango Obama, born on June 3, 1944, living at a house in the Boston suburbs, where he was known as Obama Onyango. Framingham police records list the man arrested last week as Onyango Obama, with the same birth date, June 3, 1944.

According to local reports, Officer Val Krishtal and another driver had to slam on their brakes to avoid hitting Mr Obama’s car, which rolled through a stop sign and took a quick left turn. Mr Obama allegedly told the officer he had right of way and said he doubted the officer was forced to brake hard as he did not hear his brakes squeal.

Mr Obama pleaded not guilty at his remand hearing, but was held in custody because of the immigration warrant. He now faces a legal battle. His sister Zeituni eventually won the right to live in America despite an earlier deportation order. Margaret Wong, the Cleveland lawyer who successfully represented Zeituni, confirmed through a representative last night that she has also been retained to defend Mr Obama.

“Before he went to America, we all knew him as Omar. But he dropped that bit, changing it to Obama Onyango, because he said he preferred his African name,” said Nelson Ochieng, a cousin in the Kenyan city of Kisumu.

Mr Obama’s landlady in Boston went to court to evict him in 2000 for non-payment of his dollars 500-a-month rent. He was also a partner in a convenience store that was set up in 1992, and was attacked in a robbery at the shop in 1994 by two men armed with a sawn-off rifle.

The mainstream media are signaling to Zero that they aren't themselves going to investigate embarassing aspects of his background, but will occasionally publish news reported by other sources in order to pretend to have credibility.

Considering how many reports have been posted on FR about illegals with multiple DUI's, I would question the validity of your assertion.

When Rather was with CBS, WBZ was an NBC affiliate and Channel 7 was a CBS affiliate. They swapped networks when CBS company bought the parent company of WBZ. BTW, CBS was purchased prior to that by Westinghouse Broadcasting, which took the CBS name, much like CellOne became AT&T.

Hmm, yeah I just went to their site and they have a bit about the transformation, being known now as The Bone, but mural still up
