Good news: Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle is getting his driver’s license back

posted at 6:22 pm on April 4, 2012 by John Hawkins

How much sense does it make to allow someone who was busted for drunken driving to get his driver’s license back early to make sure it won’t impact his job at a liquor store? Not much, but getting beyond that, what if that same person turns out to be an illegal alien who has been dodging a deportation order since 1992? Do you think he just MIGHT be getting special treatment? What if you find out the person in question is Barack Obama’s uncle?

Just a week after he copped a plea in a drunken-driving rap, President Obama’s illegal-alien uncle has landed a hardship driver’s license from the Registry of Motor Vehicles, making it perfectly legal for him to drive in Massachusetts — even though the feds say he doesn’t belong here.

Onyango Obama, 67, who lost his regular license for 45 days last week, scored his limited license yesterday from the Registry’s Wilmington branch, after convincing a hearing officer that life without wheels would have posed an undue hardship on his livelihood as a liquor-store manager. Obama bolstered his case with a letter from his employer, Conti Liquors, as well as proof that he’d enrolled in an alcohol-treatment program.

…The license award drew fire from one advocate of tough enforcement on illegals, Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson.

“Our democracy is predicated on law,” Hodgson said. “When we start to interpret these laws differently and manipulate them the way we want them to work for certain people, we start to send a mixed message to people that the law doesn’t really matter. Its subject to interpretation. You don’t have to follow the law. They find ways to justify it. We need the laws to be very clear. We need ‘no’ to mean ‘no’ again.”

Onyango Obama has been living in America illegally since 1963. He was supposed to be deported in 1992, but since the government has no interest in actually enforcing the law, we don’t detain many of the illegals we catch. Therefore, rather than being deported, illegals run away — which is not exactly a shocker to anyone who’s not a government employee.

So here’s a key question: Why should we want a 67 year old with a drunk-driving rap who has been running from the law for twenty years to be allowed to stay in our country? What message does it send to all the immigrants who have been waiting patiently in their home countries to come here legally? The message would either have to be, “You’re really stupid to obey the law,” “It’s good to be related to the President,” or some combination thereof.

Moreover, how has Onyango Obama been working? Does he get paid under the table? Does he have a fake Social Security number? He definitely has a driver’s license, which makes you wonder if he’s registered to vote. Did Onyango Obama vote for his nephew in 2008? If he did, would anyone even realize an illegal alien voted? Will he be voting for him in 2012?

Here’s an idea: How about we deport Onyango Obama as soon as possible to set an example. If even Barack Obama’s uncle can’t get away with being here illegally, it might actually convince other illegals to do the right thing and go home.

According to Marco “Blondie” Rubio, if Onyongo has any kids here, it’s up to us to educate, feed and clothe them.

Ah, Massachusetts…You never fail to disappoint me in being the hack-cesspool you so inspire to become.

And the answer to everyone is *yes* he can and will get away with it…hell, I’d be surprised if they don’t give him a damn new car to go with the license…

…a Volt, I’m sure.

BlaxPac on April 4, 2012 at 8:51 PM

Is it really a bad thing to hand out Volts to drunk drivers? Think about it. There could be a win-win involved.

I know this is mostly rhetorical but I am curious if there’s ever been a president here or anywhere else in the world (except for Africa maybe) with this sort of ‘pedigree’…I believe that in a sense he really represent some sort of American ‘exceptionalism’, not the right kind though :-(…

He was an illegal alien back then as well.

I do, Kim…but knowing how things are,the drunk’s lawyer would slither in and sue the victim for what they have left.

Cynical? Hell yeah. With good reason too.

Do you think Obama would have said “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” if Trayvon would have been white?

You are such an easy target that it’s not even funm, and it’s not a fair fight.

Schadenfreude on April 4, 2012 at 6:51 PM

Obama was trying to sympathize with the family in relating to them in their time of loss that he feels their grief as though it was his own. Having kids around that age he couldn’t imagine the pain of losing once precious child.
I get the distinct feeling that, with conservatives its all about whose ox is being gored. Most here would never sympathize with African Americans under any circumstance. In fact I always wonder why every race issues divides along conservative/liberal and indirectly white/black.
Can you put yourself in Trayvon’s parents shoes for a moment? Fact is Obama is an empathetic man and he’s demonstrated that countless of times. I remember a year ago his moving speeches to tornado stricken Midwestern states and how he emotionally connected with the people who had lost family members.

Oh Plueeez he is a garden variety normally found in nature race pimp and political ambulance chaser. If you think this 4 year episode of the taxpayer funded “The Jeffersons”is a thing of beauty and pride well gee that bar is low as Detroit, Compton, Newark, DC etc, etc. You don’t expect much of your crowd or yourself….

HatfieldMcCoy on April 4, 2012 at 10:59 PM

Sorry, but he said, “If I had a son, he would’ve looked like Trayvon.” He meant he would have been black. The tragedy isn’t that a black, young man died. The tragedy is that a young man died and the MSM, irresponsible politicians, and race hustlers have guaranteed that this will not end well.

A National Travesty

http://predicthistunpredictpast.blogspot.com/2012/04/national-travesty.html

“Having kids around that age he couldn’t imagine the pain of losing once precious child.”

Having kids at any age and losing them is an indescribable pain. I lost my daughter shortly after she was born. Two British young men were killed in Florida. 10 people were killed in Chicago, including a 6 year-old, African-American girl. While I would never expect Obama to care about my daughter or me, he never said anything about these other tragic, lost lives. Why? Do they not look like the son that he never had? Is everything about him always? Is the Trayvon case just a political vehicle to use for his reelection?

Selective sympathy and empathy on Mr Obama’s part.

“I get the distinct feeling that, with conservatives its all about whose ox is being gored. Most here would never sympathize with African Americans under any circumstance”

That is what you want to believe. Sorry, but the race card is MAXED OUT. I’ve been called a racist for everything since Obama became President and I don’t have a racist bone in my body. Here is a case in point:

I’ve been told that I hate Obamacare because “there’s a black man living in the White House” when I would prefer Barack Obama’s reelection — and the thought of 4 more years of Obama’s Neo-Nationalism is nothing short of a nightmare for me — to the Supreme Court setting such a dangerous precedent by upholding Obamacare? That is how deeply and passionately I feel about the Constitution, the rule of the law, and limiting the power of Leviathan. I would feel the same way if Barack Hussein Obama, Jr, was a white libertarian and signed the same law. My visceral, guttural, and instinctual hatred of the Affordable Care Act has never had anything to do with Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. It’s a freedom thang, baby, and the very reason that I chose to become an American!

Your race-baiting no longer works.

Does Laura Bush still have hers?

KeninCT on April 4, 2012 at 6:31 PM

I must say, I’m a bit confused about what point you are attempting to make. This story is about an illegal alien who got his license back after recently being arrested for DUI, possibly because of his political connections. How does it have anything at all to do with Laura Bush? Is Laura Bush in this country illegally? Has she ever been arrested for drunk driving? Or arrested for anything, for that matter?

Or are you suggesting that anyone who has ever been involved in a car accident should have their driver license revoked for the rest of their life?

I hope one of the first things the next Republican president does is to rapidly deport all of Obummer’s illegal aliens relatives who are in this country.

I hate Obummer for many reasons, the biggest reason being that he is trying to take all health care away from our disabled child. Health care that my husband earned by serving 24 years in the military. I don’t care what color Obummer is. I would hate him just as much if he were white or any other race.

DEPORT HIM IMMEDIATELY! We have enough American Law Breakers without IMPOTING them!

“…after convincing a hearing officer that life without wheels would have posed an undue hardship on his livelihood as a liquor-store manager.” Life DOES $uck without a driver’s license, but having one is a priviledge NOT a ‘right’. When you break the law, you get puniched. If you don’t want to be forced to endure ‘hardship’ don’t break the friggin’ law. Besides, your brother wants all of us to stop driving cars and use mass transit more, anyway. Am I emotionally moved by a plea from an ILLEGAL who just broke the law who says he is experiencing hardship he brought upon himself while being in this country illegally?! NO. Deport him NOW! ANY Illegal who commits a crime and is convicted should be IMMEDIATELY deported. Obama’s family should be treated no differently!

See, this is where you go wrong you bigoted little cockroach of a race bating parasite. It’s not about race, regardless of how much you want it to be so you can point your dirty little finger and throw accusations around like your talking point prescribe you to.
It’s about character, integrity, honesty, and intellect.

I detest Odumbass with every fiber of my body because he’s an evil and lying bastard who doesn’t even have the honesty to show his school transcripts and to account for the 20 years of his past that is completely missing. He methodically dismantles our freedoms and burdens all legal U.S. Citizens with an enormous debt so he can fund his underhanded wealth distribution scheme. He enriches his cronies and he wastes taxpayer money on his lavish, in your face, lifestyle while the country is falling apart.

And he wears girl jeans for heaven’s sake!!!

On the other hand I completely respect and admire Allen West, both for the service and sacrifice he’s done to our country, but also for his sharp mind and dedication to right this ship and get this country back on track.

It’s all about character, integrity, honesty and intellect.

But then again, in your racist little bigot brain, you probably don’t even consider Allen West a real black person.

Slither back to your filthy litle echo chamber at Kos you vermin.

I think any blogger who investigated and wrote about getting a drivers license after 2007 and the issue of “lawful presence” would uncover a huge scam in many states. I recently got a drivers license here in CO after having a license for years in another state. I went through hell trying to get it because of the Real ID act which requires very specific documentation establishing “lawful presense”. Because my valid DL from another state did not spell out my middle name since it was issued prior to 2007, the DMV would not accept it as ID establishing lawful presence. Only specific documentation was acceptable, including only certain birth certificate types, and only with a raised seal. A notarized or certified copy was not acceptable. After three days of going to the DMV and calling supervisors in Denver, I finally got my DL. I served in the military for years, and even a DD214 was not acceptable.
There is no way this bozo could get a license under the Real ID act without inside help. I doubt his nephew could get one either given the documentation in the public record. All states are required to comply with Real ID. Why does this guy have a license/
