President Obama’s “Uncle Omar” Problem

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

President Obama’s 67-year-old uncle, Obama Onyango, is turning out to be a thorn in the side of “no-drama Obama” in the lead-up to the 2012 general election.

“Uncle Omar” as he’s affectionately known, is an illegal immigrant who was arrested after a near collision with a Framingham, MA cop. “Uncle Omar” was in possession of a valid Social Security number for the past 19 years, despite being in the U.S. illegally and being deported back to Kenya, the Boston Herald has learned.

Onyango, whose sister, Zeituni Onyango, made headlines when it was revealed she was an illegal immigrant living in public housing in South Boston, was wobbly legged, “slurring” and had “red and glassy eyes” when he was pulled over at 7 p.m. Wednesday on Waverly Street in Framingham.

A marked cruiser pulled him over just past the Chicken Bone saloon, near Onyango’s single-family home. Onyango, the half-brother of President Obama’s papi identified in press accounts as “Uncle Omar,” initially denied drinking but admitted having “two beers” after police said they smelled booze on his breath, according to a police report.

Onyango’s white Mitsubishi SUV was pulled over after the vehicle made a sudden right turn in front of a cruiser at a stop sign, causing Krishtal to slam on the brakes to avoid a collision. Onyango blew a .14 on the Breathalyzer and continually interrupted the officer, the report states.

Mike Rogers, a spokesman for Cleveland immigration attorney Margaret Wong, who is representing “Uncle Omar,” said he “wouldn’t know how” Onyango obtained a Social Security number. Wong is the same lawyer who represented the president’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, in her fight to win asylum last year.

Reached for a comment at her South Boston public housing complex home yesterday, Zeituni Onyango said of her brother’s arrest: “Why don’t you go to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C., and ask your president? Not me.” She then hung up on a reporter.

    Watch Obama pull a few strings to make this “problem” go away.

  2. TOM339 says:

    This is the real scandal on many levels.

    Uncle Omar is here illegally, he has a Social Security number that doesn’t belong to him, he’s in possession of a Mass Health card while 48 million Americans have no health insurance, he has a Mass drivers license, and before anyone plays the race card, the INS ordered him deported back to Kenya, he ignored the deportation order and drove an an SUV drunk.

    Where is the mainstream media on this? I haven’t heard any of them report on it. Why is this?

    Meanwhile, people who come to the U.S., get in the lottery and wait, spend years in limbo not knowing whether their number will ever come up.

    Talk left= somewhat teabaggy. hmmm

    You’re correct, Ladyle827.

    President Obama is the most powerful man on earth so lets ignore news about him and about his family and if the story happens to reflect badly on Mr. Obama, lets sweep it under the DNC’s rug. Hmmm, indeed. 😉

  5. Uncle Omar says:

    I waiting for my nephew to work this deportation thing out. I ain’t wanting to return to Kenya. We see.

  6. ladyle827 says:

    Big Hank, How does this reflect on the president? Was he in the car with this uncle and was magically whisked away from the scene? I’m sure that the president isn’t the only official in the government who has illegal relatives in the country. Didn’t the republicans drag his illegal family through the muck in 2008. I stand by the teabaggy statement. I fear that all white american’s have the same affliction. Sometimes I wish he’d lost the election than go through this bullshit from all ‘yall. Lefty liberal Teabaggers

  7. JollyRoger says:

    Yeah, I can find plenty of things to rake Bushack over the coals for. This isn’t one of them. Most people have Billys or Rogers in their families.

  8. Debbie Banuelos says:

    How big is Obama’s illegal family?

  9. LadyLe87 & Jolly Roger,

    There are 71 million blogs. If you find this one too critical of Obama, then perhaps you need to push off to greener pastures.

  10. Peace Nick says:

    I agree with Tom339. This is a big story. I’m glad bloggers are covering it, as well as the Boston Herald.

    If Uncle Omar stole a Social Security number to use to get state health benefits he should have to repay Massachusetts. I have a friend who lost his job and the Cobra benefits offered were $1,400 a month. He had to go without health benefits for nine months until he found a job. It ticks me off that people like Uncle Omar are working the system at our expense.

  11. Massagatto says:

    The entire Kenyan Obama clan is here and mooching off the American taxpayers!

    Auntie-O came here illegally and managed to get herself government subsidized housing while veterans go homeless and live in parks in cardboard boxes.

    Uncle-O came here illegally and is using a ill-gotten Social Security number for get Massachusetts state benefits while veterans have to wait for up to 18 months for a simple out patient procedure.

    Barry-O is living in the White House, free, and getting paid $400,000 a year and use of a Boeing 747 to go to the golf course.

    Enough is enough. Ship them all back to Kenya!

  12. Harry says:

    Cue the O-Bots to circle the wagons!

  13. ajihani says:

    LadyLe87 – Really? Reporting on a member of Obama’s family is Tea Party-esque? Crawl back to the Democratic Underground. Your rock is waiting there with your name on it.

  14. Nobamanishqua says:

    That’s the trouble about lying. You have to remember how many balls you’ve got in the air.

    The Social Security verification system established Barack Hussein Obama has a Social Security number issued 1977 originally to a retired German immigrant who fled Europe after WWII and moved to Connecticut. Later, he relocated to Honolulu, HI.

    Now, the Boston Herald says Ole’ Uncle Omar has a Social Security number from 19 yrs ago, yet his Social Security number was originally issued between 1964 and 1966.

    What the hell kind of shenanigans are going on with these Obama people? The American people are stupid but we’re not that stupid. Where is Rep. Darrel Issa? Start investigating.

  15. Jim says:

    Oh how depressing!

  16. One Fly says:

    bama gets his ass kicked on a regular schedule at my place because he needs and deserves it. This doesn’t mean shit to me. Could care less and this man has no control over what dumb ass distant relatives do who came from Africa how ever they got here.

  17. Nobamanishqua says:

    People should care about the purported Connecticut Social Security number President Obama uses on his Federal tax returns.

    I realize this is getting deep for many of you but the first three digits of a Social Security number correspond to the state you were born.

    040-049 is Connecticut. 577-579 is Hawaii. Assuming Obama was born in Hawaii, as his live birth certificate states, why does his Social Security number fall in the 040-049 is Connecticut range?

    Here, Robert Gibbs was asked about the mismatched Social Security numbers. Naturally, Gibbs had not answer.

  18. Nobamanishqua,

    I did not know this about Barack Obama’s Social Security number. Thanks for posting.

  19. Adirondacky says:

    How many family members does Obama have living illegally in the USA?

  20. Shayne K. says:

    Ship Auntie Obama and Uncle Omar back to Kenya.

    They’re here illegally and they don’t deserve special treatment just because their nephew happens to be president.
