The News You Didn't Hear: Barack Obama's Uncle Omar Arrested for DUI; Tried to Call White House

John Hill from Stand With Arizona Against Illegal Immigration writes:

Another one? You can’t be serious.

Americans were enraged last year by the story of Barack Obama’s illegal alien Aunt Zeituni.
[I must disagree with John here. I would argue that only a handful of Americans were enraged because the press completely stonewalled the story. But let's let John get back to it.] Zeituni had mooched the system in Boston for public housing, welfare and food stamps for years. All while ignoring deportation orders and skipping immigration hearings, before a judge (in an unprecedented closed hearing) granted her asylum in May 2010. You may recall that Obama’s grifter Aunt wasn’t exactly humble or grateful about her experience.

Now is has been reported that Obama has another close relative in the U.S.  illegally who is gaming the system in the sanctuary state of Massachusetts.

Onyango Obama, 67, is the “Uncle Omar” mentioned in the president’s book, “Dreams From My Father.” He is also from from Kenya and is the brother of Zeituni. And last week, “Uncle Omar” Obama was arrested in Framingham, Mass. for DUI  and nearly colliding with a police car...

As if there was any doubt about his connection with the President, “Uncle Omar” cleared that up right away when he was booked: "Framingham Public Information Officer Lieutenant Delaney said when Onyango Obama was asked at the station if he wanted to make a telephone call to arrange for bail, he replied: 'I think I will call the White House.'"

Well, how nice for him. And how do we know he is here illegally? "Obama has a federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement warrant for his arrest. ICE has previously ordered him to be deported back to Kenya…. Judge Douglas Stoddart did not set any bail on the driving charges but ordered him held on the ICE warrant."

Sound familiar? That is what Aunt Zeituni faced as well, minus the DUI of course. In fact, it has now been reported that “Uncle Omar” has retained Cleveland lawyer Margaret Wong – the same immigration attorney who successfully represented Mr. Obama’s sister Zeituni, when she managed to avoid deportation to Kenya.

Now it's true that Jimmy Carter had his bumbling, beer-guzzling brother. And Bill Clinton...Well, Bill had his oversexed, insincere self. But even rolled together, these guys cannot match the kind of bizarre, dysfunctional and downright ugly behavior provided by the family of Barack Obama.

I know, I know. You can't pick your kin. And so I'm not going to blame poor Barack for the antics of these goofballs. Guilt by association shouldn't be applied when it concerns relatives.

However, there is one group that does deserve blame and that's the American "mainstream media" who absolutely refuses to tell the American people anything about these guys. If they belonged to Republicans, these knuckleheads would be on a first name basis with Katie Couric. They'd be well known in every household from news shows, talk shows and sleazy reality series.

Even Democrats Jimmy and Bubba were obliged to perform some kind of damage control. But Mr. Obama has received and continues to receive nothing but positive, even adulatory treatment for everything connected with him. And those things that can in no conceivable way be spun into a puff piece for President Obama? They are carefully, unconditionally ignored.
