Uncle Obama’ wins a driver’s license following a drunk driving arrest while working illegally
Commentary by Jim Campbell
This fact checking and digging on this story sickens me. Obama must be defeated in 2012 with or the story below will continue to be played out over and over again as the Holder Justice Department continues to show its impotence when blacks are involved. What’s it going to take to get rind of Uncle Obama, does he have to kill someone while is drunk first?
Come on folks what is all the hand wringing about? Are you upset that the Boston Herald had trumped you with a reality check. Get use to it, It’s called “social justice.” Calling Eric Holder, a Massachusetts drunken driving charge against President Barack Obama’s uncle will be dismissed if he stays out of trouble for a year, officials said Tuesday.
Onyango Obama, was arrested January 2012 for drunk driving.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message
Onyango Obama, 67, admitted to sufficient facts at a hastily scheduled hearing Tuesday. That means he didn’t plead guilty but acknowledged Massachusetts prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him. A judge continued the case for one year without a finding, meaning that if he does not get arrested during that time, the charge will be dismissed. A judge also ordered him to attend a driver alcohol education program.
“Uncle Obama on the roads again,” reported that Onyango Obama, the president’s uncle and a Kenyan national who has been living and working illegally in the U.S. since 1963 – even after he was ordered deported in 1992 – “scored his limited [driver’s] 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.”
As always with the mainstream media, the Boston Herald didn’t note the irony that Onyango Obama was working illegally. The Herald did not remind its readers that it had, in a previous story, described Obama’s employer as being in “total shock” that Obama was working illegally. There was no follow-up quote from Obama’s employer, who has apparently been allowed to keep his illegal hire instead of opening up the job to a U.S. citizen or legal immigrant worker.
The mainstream media and the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles apparently share the same high opinion of illegal employment – and disregard for displaced workers. For them, illegal employment is to be celebrated and rewarded – in this case, with a driver’s license. Obama’s hearing officer judged it to be too cruel to deny Obama the ability to drive himself to his illegally obtained U.S. job. But neither the hearing officer nor the Boston Herald mentioned the unemployed or underemployed worker who has lost his ability to work.
If the Boston Herald was concerned, as it should be, about illegal employment with over 20 million citizens and legal immigrants unable to find full-time work, it could investigate how Obama and his employer are able to manipulate the system, and what should be done to prevent others from doing the same.
The trail would ultimately lead them to the Legal Workforce Act, H.R. 2885, which is currently blocked by House Leadership in Congress. Massachusetts is unlikely to pass a mandatory E-Verify bill. Even if it did, it could never pass a law that would expose existing hires like Onyango Obama. Only a national bill like H.R. 2885 can open up the more than 7 million non-farm jobs illegally occupied by foreign nationals to the U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who need them.
