The obligatory “Obama’s half-uncle arrested on DUI charge” post

posted at 8:53 pm on August 29, 2011 by Allahpundit

Normally I have sympathy for people like this, whose mistakes become national news purely by dint of who they’re related to. This guy, however, not only nearly plowed into a cop car, he’s facing a deportation order. Which suggests, without quite confirming, that he’s here illegally and has been for years.

Time for a beer summit with ICE? All that’s missing is the obligatory pronouncement from on high that “the police acted stupidly.”

Onyango Obama, 67, was arrested last week in Framingham, about 20 miles west of Boston, after police said he made a rolling stop through a stop sign and nearly caused a cruiser to strike his sport utility vehicle.

Police said that after being booked at the police station, Obama was asked whether he wanted to make a telephone call to arrange for bail. “I think I will call the White House,” he stated, according to a police report filed in Framingham District Court.

Police said Obama, who is originally from Kenya and is the half-brother of the president’s late father, pleaded not guilty Friday and is being held without bail on a detainer from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In a court document, ICE said Onyango Obama had an earlier deportation or removal order.

His immigration status couldn’t immediately be confirmed, but such orders are generally reserved for people living in the country illegally. A spokesman for ICE declined to comment on Onyango Obama’s immigration case, and the White House had no comment.

The bad news? Obama was on vacation last week when the arrest happened so that call to the White House wouldn’t have done much good. The good news? He was on vacation in Massachusetts, so in theory he could have just swung by the precinct and bailed Uncle Onyango out. The Boston Herald called Obama’s aunt Zeituni, who was also here illegally but was granted asylum by an immigration judge last year, for her comment on the arrest. Quote: “Why don’t you go to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washingon, D.C. and ask your president? Not me.” I kind of like her.

As for how long he’s been here illegally, no one knows for sure. But read Kerry Picket’s post citing the Times of London for an attempted timeline. If I’m understanding it correctly, Obama’s grandmother told him in 1988 that Uncle Onyango had left for the United States “25 years ago” and never come back. If that’s roughly accurate then he’s been here for upwards of 50 full years. Between that and the fact that his face and name are now internationally famous, this arrest might end up being the best thing that could have happened to him. If they send him back to Kenya, he’s a target for any U.S. enemy looking to menace the president’s family. Which is to say, he’s probably a likelier candidate for asylum now than he was a week ago — even though, per DHS’s new policy, illegals who have had scrapes with the law are supposed to be first up for deportation. Oh well. One big happy “federal family”!

arnold ziffel on August 29, 2011 at 8:59 PM

BTW, it’s been said on Howie Carr’s show that he had a “valid” SSN and a driver’s license…

If I’m understanding it correctly, Obama’s grandmother told him in 1988 that Uncle Onyango had left for the United States “25 years ago” and never come back. If that’s roughly accurate then he’s been here for upwards of 50 full years.

Someone else made a good point with regard to how long he’s been here… why didn’t he qualify for Reagan’s amnesty?

He heard JFK’s call to land a man on the moon and he came to help out.

Can’t little Bammie give him a green card and make him CEO of General Motors or something? We’d forgive a little nepotism in the royal family wouldn’t we?

lol, I would have loved to have heard that conversation if they had connected.

“Barrack, I need help.”

“Uh, uh, Uncle Onyango, me and the family were just headed out to church. Yeah church. No, I mean to the hospital. Michelle is not feeling well at all. But call me back if you … COMING … call me back if you need anything Uncle Onyango, uh, bye!”

When you’ve got a half-brother living in a hut in Africa and a half-uncle juiced on the streets of Boston, does that make you a half-ass of some kind? Just asking. Though, I must say, this guy Onyango, makes Billy Carter look like a long lost friend.

Just how many illegal relatives does Barry have in this country?

No wonder he’s “pro-amnesty”.

Barack Hussein claimed himself qualified to be Commander in Chief of he United States Military “corpse” based on the sole experience of having a great-grand-uncle-once-removed who served seventy years ago.

So, by rights, he should be deported over this incident.

However, apparently last week MSNBC determined that politicians ARE accountable for members of their families, so that makes this guy’s actions fair game.

Didn’t the Obama Family pay this guy a visit? I mean, they were in Massachussetts and all…oh wait, they were at the Vineyard, er, Vin-yaaaahhhdd.

ted c on August 29, 2011 at 9:39 PM

This might be a good time for President Obama to “discover” evidence that his father is actually the Communist from Chicago, Frank Marshall Davis.

Here is a link to author Jack Cashill’s theories on the men who might be Obama’s father:

Were the married Davis the father, and had Dunham introduced his daughter to him, it may explain what Obama has described as “the complicated, unspoken transaction between the two men.” In this scenario, both would have had a vested interest in finding someone else to take the paternity rap. By keeping the marriage secret, they would have allowed Barack Sr. to continue living the life of a single man.

Barack Sr. had a lot to offer, starting with his pigmentation.

Besides, as a Kenyan, he would have given the boy more than a name. He would give him a distinctive identity as an “African”—his race listed on the certification of birth–a more respected ethnicity in the America of the 1960′s than “Negro.” Indeed, Obama has built his career around his exotic identity. Were he named after Frank Marshall Davis or any other American, he may never have been elected president.

http://www.cashill.com/intellect_fraud/further_inquiry.htm

Suddenly discovering who his real father is would clear away lots of problems with the Kenyan side of his family.

Obama: If she has violated laws, then those laws have to be obeyed. We are a nation of laws.

Alas, his Aunt is still here and living in public housing in Boston since a Judge granted her asylum a couple of years ago.

Fuquay Steve on August 29, 2011 at 10:25 PM

So alcoholism runs in the Obama family? Obama’s father died in a car crash. This is a familiar pattern in the Obama family. There are only three outcomes for alcoholism, locked up, sobered up or toes up.

As his son described it in his memoir, conflict with President Jomo Kenyatta destroyed Obama Sr.’s career.[55] The decline began after Tom Mboya’s assassination in 1969. Obama Sr. was fired from his job by Kenyatta, was blacklisted in Kenya, and began to drink. He had a serious car accident, spent almost a year in the hospital, and by the time he visited his son in Hawaii in late 1971, he already had a bad leg.[56] Obama Sr.’s life fell into drinking and poverty, from which he never recovered. His friend, journalist Philip Ochieng, has described Obama Sr.’s difficult personality and drinking problems in the Kenya newspaper the Daily Nation.[20] Obama Sr. later lost both legs in another automobile collision and subsequently lost his job. He fathered another son named George. Six months after his son’s birth, Obama Sr. died in a third car crash in Nairobi in 1982.

Perhaps the President’s uncle was also blacklisted back in Kenya? That’s why he’s been living in the U.S. all these years?

Dr Evil on August 29, 2011 at 10:29 PM

It took some digging, but here is the video, so we can all remember the sense of entitlement Aunt Zeituni displayed when she was interviewed by WBZ TV.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=7XIXW23QzTw

Here are some choice quotes from Aunt Zeituni’s video:

“If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.”

“I didn’t ask for it. They gave it to me.”

“I didn’t take advantage of the system. The system took advantage of me.”

“My help comes from heaven.”

“It’s a free country. A country under God.”

“This country is owned by almighty God.”

“You have to give me my rights. Just like any other person’s rights.”

How many other ILLEGAL aliens have this same sense of righteous entitlement after receiving free housing and a monthly check from the American tax payer?

wren on August 29, 2011 at 10:38 PM

This reminds me of Liberal Ted Kennedy who was so generous with taxpayers money but was supposedly a cheapskate with his own. I always like the comparison of how much the republican candidates give to charity vesus their democratic opponents. I guess the Dems don’t want to compete with the government’s racket.

Don’t worry. ICE will have “Secure Communities” enacted by the end of 2013 or something.

shanimal on August 29, 2011 at 10:12 PM

Not if big states like New York, Massachusetts, Illinois and possibly California and cities like San Francisco refuse to enforce the Secure Communities policy.

In 2008 the Obama team began lining up states and localities to take part in a new enforcement strategy known as Secure Communities. Fingerprints would be checked by immigration computers when local arrests were made, and lawbreakers here illegally would face deportation.

This resistance inspired three major states – New York, Massachusetts and Illinois – to try withdrawing from the program, which they considered voluntary. In its edict Friday, the Obama administration refused, saying it wasn’t optional. Gov. Jerry Brown and Attorney General Kamala Harris haven’t spoken up.

San Francisco has its own procedures: Sheriff Mike Hennessey turns over serious lawbreakers but releases a handful of small offenders.

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/08/10/ED0E1KL73K.DTL

In 2011 and 2012, we need to elect candidates at the Local, State and Federal level who will actually enforce our laws against ILLEGAL immigration.

We need to make ending ILLEGAL immigration a top issue in all of the 2011 and 2012 elections.

ninjapirate on August 29, 2011 at 9:00 PM

An illegal alien who wanted amnesty had to submit an application for it. It wasn’t just automatically granted to any foreigner living illegally in the country at the time.

As for this uncle, he doesn’t fit into any of the categories (e.g., student, nursing mother, no criminal record, etc.) of Barry’s own personal, by-executive-fiat-since-he-couldn’t-get-Congress-to-pass-it “Dream Act” — so he should be deported. But we all know he won’t be, because like the other parasitic Obama relatives, he’ll likely be granted asylum based on his name.

Perhaps the judge who grants asylum to this most recent Obama parasite can explain to us why Obama’s U.S./illegal alien relatives would be in such peril from their name if they were returned to live in their own country of Kenya, yet all of the other Obamas currently living there are treated like celebrities and don’t appear to have faced any problems whatsoever because of their relationship to the U.S. president?

And BTW, if all of Obama’s Kenyan relatives are in such peril as a result of their kinship to the U.S. president that we have to grant them asylum to live in the U.S., doesn’t that suggest that perhaps we should have taken the Founders’ advice and only elected a “natural born citizen” of the United States as president?

Watch this short video to see what President Obama said when the media found out that his Aunt Zeituni was an ILLEGAL alien.

Katie Couric: Would you support her being deported to Kenya?

Obama: If she has violated laws, then those laws have to be obeyed. We are a nation of laws.

So does this mean that President Obama thinks his Uncle should be deported too?

Alas, his Aunt is still here and living in public housing in Boston since a Judge granted her asylum a couple of years ago.

But that can’t be correct. If we are indeed a ” nation of laws” …… Why is he now allowing illegals to do an end run around them and stay here, back door DREAM Act? I guess the statute ran out…./s. Meh!

Those “Beer Summits” seem to run in the family.

Take note, America of what the Big O does for the Chicago Machine as compared to what he does for non-immediate family members.

With that in mind, what would he do for non-relatives and for those who are, shall we say, ‘Chicago Challenged?’

Obambi family reunion = immigration raid opportunity.

Well, at least he won’t have to worry about the crushing oppression of lookism once he’s granted asylum. Quite a relief to him, I’m sure, considering that mug shot.

Sorry, I just won’t hold anyone’s family against them, especially distant relations that are hardly relationships. You don’t get to choose which family you will be born into. It’s what you do with your own life that matters.

I have 2 words for you. Prescott Bush. We didn’t make the rules, leftists did. If we keep refusing to engage in this war that they started, we lose. obama is responsible for every single thing every member of his family has ever done, period.
