How Did I Miss His Call?

We all know that Barack Obama, head of the Obama family in America, is always concerned about the welfare of his extended family. He is also very much sympathetic to the plight of illegal immigrants. So he must have been wondering why he never received a call from Onyango Obama, aka "Uncle Omar."

You see, last Wednesday Uncle Omar nearly rammed his SUV into a Framingham, Massachusetts police vehicle. Subsequently, Uncle Omar was charged with several violations of the law, including driving while intoxicated. I guess that dispels the rumor that the Obamas are all Muslims, since the Prophet forbids the use of intoxicating liquors. Either that or Uncle Omar is a lapsed Muslim.

There must have been a glitch somewhere. When the Framingham police asked Uncle Omar if he wanted to make his phone call, he replied "I think I will call the White House." He was led off to a phone bank to make the call, but procedure allows the arrestee to make the call in private. We may never know for sure whether he did indeed try to make that call to the White House.

Assuming he did, and somehow failed, that's too bad for Uncle Omar. After all, the Obama pater familias is the most powerful man in the western world, and also retains the most powerful law firm in America, the Department of Justice. Surely if he had been able to get through, the entire matter would have been dismissed, while at the same time a lawsuit would have been filed by the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department against Framingham for violating the rights of a black man who is also an illegal immigrant. Another example of racial/ethnic/immigrant profiling.

The thread of discovery of Uncle Omar's entry into the United States has been a bit tortuous. During the 2008 campaign, an investigative reporter for a British newspaper did some digging and found the future President's "Aunt Zeituni" living illegally in Boston. That led to a search for other possible Obama relatives living in the US illegally. One tip came from Barack's own book Dreams From My Father. Describing his visitation with his relatives in Kenya, the future President notes that they told him stories of family members who had emigrated to the West and were never heard from again, "like our Uncle Omar, in Boston. They've been lost, you see."

Although Uncle Omar was not found to be living with Aunt Zeituni, there was a relationship and correspondence. It eventually led to the discovery of Uncle Omar in the Boston area. He was living there under the name O. Onyango Obama, though he has come to use the name Obama Onyango. If that's an attempt at subterfuge, it's a pretty poor one. When informed of all this, candidate Barack replied "Oh, really?" Not "I already knew that," or "As President, I'll enforce immigration law regardless of whom it may affect." Just a simple non sequitur. Barack's recent executive order skirting Congress and the Constitution stalling 300,000 deportation cases explains the lack of clarity in his earlier response to questions about his relatives living in the US illegally.

Uncle Omar is a lucky man. If this were a country run by the rule of law instead of Presidential whim, Uncle Omar would be tried, possibly convicted, then turned over to immigration authorities for deportation. But the Mayor of Boston and the Governor of Massachusetts have formally declared that they will ignore federal law and report illegal immigrants to the feds only if they are convicted of serious felonies. It wouldn't matter if they did comply, since Barack has now ordered exactly the same thing, and he controls the immigration services.

I suppose if Uncle Omar had managed to kill an officer in the patrol car he almost hit, somebody might have reported him to ICE, but nothing much would be done anyway, so it would be an exercise in futility.

It appears that Uncle Omar has been living most of his life in America on the dole. But illegal longevity in the US is now a plus for immigrants who have managed to avoid killing anyone while they are here. I think it's time for Barack to use his power appropriately, and find Uncle Omar a job. He'd have to consult with Attorney General Holder, but I think there are openings for poll watchers in Philadelphia.

I'm not surprised Obama didn't take the call, he doesn't care about his family. Still, the chance he gets deported: 0%.

Jocelyn said...

I have to say, I wouldn't be all that surprised if nothing became of this.

But on a broader stroke it's awful to hear of people who are here illegally, then commit some crime, like murder, and then don't get deportated. The taxpayer then has to fund his legalities and his housing. The guy the comes to mind is the illegal that killed a Nun. If I remember correctly, he was caught and released several times, but he was allowed to stay and keep causing trouble. I don't know if he really is behind bars or not.

Anyway, this just redemonstrates how disgusting our administration is.

T-Rav said...

For me, the most interesting line in all that was how Obama's relatives (at least, I assume it was just his relatives) spoke of Uncle Omar and others as having "been lost" to the West. Really?

Euripides said...

This just makes Obama look more and more like Jimmy Carter. Remember Billy and what an "embarrassment" he was during Jimmy's presidency?

Just another nail in the Obama Legacy's coffin....

Andrew: Haven't you seen all the pictures of The One with his family in DC, Hawaii, New York, Chicago and Kenya? He must love them to put up with all the, uh, publicity. Never mind.

LawHawkRFD said...

Jocelyn: There are many of those instances. Any cop or truthful defense lawyer (if there is such a thing) will tell you that if somebody has been arrested, it may be his first arrest, but it's probably not his first offense. Catch and release is common. Back when we first started the blog, I did a San Francisco Diary entry on the case of a young thug illegal in San Francisco who was arrested on multiple misdemeanor and felony charges over a period of two years. SF policy is like Boston's and Massachusetts--no reporting to the immigration authorities. After his last release before trial, he decided to up the ante and murdered a father and son who were on their way home from dinner at a local restaurant clear across town from the thug's home gang turf.

LawHawkRFD said...

T-Rav: It was an odd use of verbiage, but they weren't indicating so much lost to the West, but rather lost in the West. But many of them who remain behind, including Barack's half-brother, indicated they were perfectly happy where they are. Or not. It depended on the day and who was asking the queston. If only we could open American welfare offices in Kenya, everything would be complete.

BevfromNYC said...

Have we ever had a President who had illegal alien relatives? Maybe Washington. It's no wonder that there are people who question Obama's citizenship. And please, the State Dept. and DHS know where every molecule of Obama's relatives legal OR illegal are, so the surprise at the revelation that he has another illegal relative is just a lie.

Anyway, the President lives in subsedized housing paid for by us, why shouldn't all of his relatives too.

LawHawkRFD said...

Euripides? Den Eumenides. Sorry, I couldn't resist an old Marx Brothers gag.

I was going to mention good ole Billy Carter, but I wasn't sure how many of our readers would even remember who he was. I did try Billy Beer, but after one sip I decided to use it as drain cleaner instead. Thanks for letting me know I'm not quite as ancient as I sometimes think I am.

LawHawkRFD said...

Bev: You make a very good point. In fact, you made several good points. Aunt Zeituni was publicly outed as an illegal during the presidential campaign, and has been living here on welfare and other public assistance during her entire sojourn in racist America. I'm not sure where Uncle Omar is on the public assistance rolls, but he has no known employment, and can still drive an SUV. It's probably a GM model.

Euripides said...

About my name....That's actually how I chase the name. (See http://selfevidenttruths-euripides.blogspot.com/p/about-euripides.html)

Yep, Jimmy was awhile ago, but I teach history and don't forget those fun facts (like Billy) too easily.

Koshcat said...

You know, if I was Obama, I don't think I would take the call either.

"Uncle who? Omar? Biden stop making prank calls."

Who doesn't have an uncle that could end up calling you from a police station one day?

Euripedes: I actually knew that, but I couldn't resist the old gag. I do hope that people will take a jog over to your site.

Tennessee Jed said...

If this was a country of laws instead of presidential whim. Hawk, you slay me. Uncle Omar was the first recipient of the "dream act" or at the very least "dreams of my uncle" act.

LawHawkRFD said...

Tennessee: Well, at least it isn't I Dream of Jeannie.

StanH said...

Eww…Billy Beer. We gave it a try as well…nasty.

Not to belabor the point, had this been a Republican it would have made the front page and been the lead of every newscast, “Bush’s uncle caught and charged with a DUI, does this mean George is drinking.” As convoluted as that is they’d still make the distinction. This sorry SOB needs to be sent directly back to Kenya.

LL said...

Ramadan lasts one more night, so dear Uncle Omar shouldn't have been eating during the hours of daylight. Then again, somebody must have spiked the punch at the Ramadan festivities and, 'it's not his fault'.

LawHawkRFD said...

Stan: I just hope that the future Republican Attorney General and the future head of Immigration are taking notes.

LawHawkRFD said...

LL: Sorry, Uncle Omar celebrates Ramalamadingdong. And every night is Ramalamadingdong.

rlaWTX said...

LOL: Ramalamadingdong!!!!!

LawHawkRFD said...

rlaWTX: If I didn't keep my sense of humor about these things, I'd spend all day crying (or worse). Glad I got you to laugh with me.
