President’s Uncle Issued Hardship Driver’s License

April 5, 2012 by  

President’s Uncle Issued Hardship Driver’s License
President Barack Obama’s uncle is allowed to drive again despite the fact that his license was revoked for 45 days just last week.

The roads of Massachusetts became more dangerous as of April 2. Onyango Obama, the President’s illegal-alien uncle, has been granted a hardship driver’s license.

Just last week, Obama pleaded guilty to a drunken-driving charge from an August arrest. His license was revoked for 45 days.

Obama, who manages Conti Liquors, convinced a hearing officer with the Registry of Motor Vehicles that being unable to drive would cause him undue hardship. Upon receiving a letter from his employer as well as proof that Obama would be participating in an alcohol treatment program, the officer issued Obama a hardship driver’s license with the caveat that he only be allowed to drive in Massachusetts between noon and midnight.

“He met all of the criteria,” said Registry of Motor Vehicles spokeswoman Sara Lavoie.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson doesn’t agree that Obama, who is awaiting an immigration hearing next week, should be allowed on the roads.

“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,” Hodgson said. “It’s 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.”

    Give it time, what we have here is a copy of Obummers father – an alcoholic by nature. This highly prized uncle may have had the law interpreted to his advantage but being it as it may, he’ll stand a better chance of killing himself in a wreck than being deported. It’s really fairly common to hear of a car wreck fatality on the evening news with the driver being drunk as the cause. Obummers father met that qualification standard many years ago. This prized uncle may very well do the same. Perhaps Obummer needs to have a talk with his uncle over a beer. Sound as a sensible approach? Sure, why not. . .

      The Ohdammit Summit…….love it.

    • Rocky Night

      Gee, If this was ANY other Presidents uncle it would have made headlines.

      Oh no the lame stream media is not biased at all. *LOL or just sigh*

      • Weaver

        Correct. Those of us who are old enough remember Jimmy Carter’s brother Billy, another drunkard. He was constantly brought up by the media as an example of some kind of drunken foolishness. He finally had his own brand of beer, Billy Beer. Horrible stuff. And look, Obama’s drunken uncle works at a liquor store. Gee, I wonder where he get his daily 5th of booze.

    • Robert Peterson

      They could have a beer together in Kenya with obumbles half brother. This guy should be gone. When he kills some poor person in Mass. trying to get home or to work, what will happen then??

      • JUKEBOX

        This is typical of the total disregard of our laws by the illegal President and his family.

        • jim ernst

          Oh, come on. All we have to do is vote him out of office. Heh, wait a minute! Socialist/collectivist/communist Obama, vs hmmmmm….Oligarchist/monopolist/fascist Romney……wait a minute! Sounds like the dialectics from 1936 Nazi Germany. Seig Heil!

      • lee

        thats no problem they will just let him go because he is an illegal alien.

      • eddie47d

        So much for wanting States Rights or community rights. This issue was handled locally and you are trying to connect Barrack to this relatives behavior. Some drunk drivers don’t get any suspension or revocation even after several infractions. Should this be a new national law or dealt with at the local level? Are any of you always responsible for your kins behavior and need to be punished right along with them.

      • Jerry

        I think they should DEPORT the whole fam-damily back to Kenya, INCLUDING the nephew!!!

        • David in MA

          When this bird kills someone he will haul azz back to kenya and be untouchable—-and get away with murder, that’s what will happen!~

      • http://naver samurai

        What about his family members that have killed others in Kenya for Islam? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • http://Bud12 Ed

      Deport the muslim and his uncle.

      • Phyllis Henschel

        Don’t forget Obummers aunt that is on welfare and we as taxpayers
        pay all her bills because we owe her…… She has been told to leave
        for several years and still has the gall to stay. Cant get her own country
        to take care of her. That is why illegals come here for our welfare
        and anything else they can get beats living where they die or disapear
        if they want any help. You don’t see them in their country telling
        other people they have to take care of them or the goverment.
        ONLY IN AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Mark in LA

        Well Phyllis, thank Ronald Reagan for creating the immigration courts in his 1986 amnesty. If you really want to learn something (and puke), Juan Mann used to write about these courts and how it was impossible to deport anybody who didn’t want to be.

    • securityman

      They will meet whatever critia the nitwit prez meets, if they go before someone with no balls. The problem is,per stats, he will probably kill somone else out there on the road instead of himself. When, not if, it happens, I hope the family involved sues the state for their lack of guts.

    • Ted Crawford

      I wonder; in view of the Motor Voter Law, does this mean that Obama can now vote for the other Obama?

    • Warrior

      Hmmm, drunken driving and he manages a liquor store? I wonder how closely that store owner watches his inventory?

  • joey

    only in America.

  • Wilbert Jennings

    With the way things are going, this sounds like an excuse for censorship.. Muslims arre scaring America into submission and turning over our country the way Britain has to the muslims. Muslims are not peaceful and trruly follow the words of their own koran. They can pretend, lie, cheat and marry one year old girls all and still be a muslim.All of anything if it allows them to kill, torture and raape any non believer if they don’t convert.

    • mark smith

      Say it like it is brother. Thank you!!!

  • David in MA

    Let me get this straight.
    A drunkin muslim in the country illegally, working in a packie store violates one or more motor vehicle laws and gets a hardship license?

    What if this was you or I? It would be tough chit, weekend jail and revolked license.

    Which he should have been given, PLUS is dumb azz DEPORTED!

    Just another example of elite socialism, with more to come if obozo stays in office and his appointee are not ousted.

    BTW, Elizabeth Warren is as much a danger to America as obozo is, she helped with some of his socialist planning….. AND, admits it openly, this is how secure they feel in their agenda.

  • skippy

    what a bunch of bull—. I am soooooooooooooooo damn sick and tired of all of this pussyfooting with ILLEGALS. Get them the hell outa here. NOW, not later.

  • http://yahoo Maynard

    There are evil people in any faith, but the fact is that Muslims, Jews and Christians all have the same roots. Abraham was encouraged by his wife Sarah to have an heir with an Egyptian woman because she was barren. The son of the Egyptian woman was called Ismael. When he was about 13 Sarah miraculously became pregnant despite her advanced age. Naturally, Sarah now wanted her son Isaac to be the heir. Abraham agreed. God wanted to test Abraham’s faith so he told him to sacrifice his son. According to the Jews, he tried to kill Isaac. The Muslims believe it was Ismael. God was satisfied that Abraham was faithful, so the sacrifice became a sheep. The Jews believe they are descendents of Isaac and the Muslims believe they are descendents of Ismael.
    The Muslims accept the Ten Commandments and follow them strictly which is why they will not permit animals or humans to be depicted as it violates their interpretation of “graven images.” They accept Jesus as a prophet but believe Mohammed a greater one. True Muslims do not believe in wearing jewelry, drinking alcohol or smoking. They do not condone the murder of innocents whether they are men, women or children.
    Immediately after 9/11, Osama bin Laden denounced the attacks. The video we “found” of him bragging about them is a fake. Look at images on the internet and you will see the real bin Laden had a long, narrow face. The imposter had a wider face, a bulbous nose, and was wearing a gold watch. It was another deception by our government to justify war and take away our freedoms.
    Now, Obama has the power under NDAA 2012 to have the military arrest and incarcerate, without trial, anyone he designates. We had better stand up to him, and stop worrying about true Muslims. They are not the ones droning innocents to death in Pakistan. Now, the Congress has appropriated $63 billion for drones to be used right here: to spy, intimidate, and even kill in the name of security. Only Ron Paul has stood against this among the major Presidential candidates.

    • Ken

      Maynard… where in the world are you living? You demonstrate zero understanding of Islam, Muslims, Christians or Jew and their history. Back!! Back I say!! Back under the uninformed rock from under which you crawled!!

      • Maynard

        Ken, you better start reading Genesis, King James version, and you will find Abraham did have a son, Ishmael (alternate spelling Ismael). You will also find that the Muslims do indeed believe he is their progenitor and also believe in the Ten Commandments Moses received. Before you call someone else ignorant, you had better make sure your own is not showing.

        • Ken

          Acknowledged Maynard, however my comments were directed to the fullness of your blind defense of Muslims and Islam, “The Muslims accept the Ten Commandments and follow them strictly which is why they will not permit animals or humans to be depicted as it violates their interpretation of “graven images.” They accept Jesus as a prophet but believe Mohammed a greater one. True Muslims do not believe in wearing jewelry, drinking alcohol or smoking. They do not condone the murder of innocents whether they are men, women or children. Immediately after 9/11, Osama bin Laden denounced the attacks. The video we “found” of him bragging about them is a fake. Look at images on the internet and you will see the real bin Laden had a long, narrow face. The imposter had a wider face, a bulbous nose, and was wearing a gold watch. It was another deception by our government to justify war and take away our freedoms.” And your take on the reasons for it together with your foolish support of Ron Paul.

          And it is quite obvious that you have never studied the Koran either. Or the history of Muslims.

          My original reply stands.

    • http://Huntley Camille

      “They do not condone the murder of innocents whether they are men, women or children.” Please re-read your Koran, your above statement contradicts. Also, the Bible text states that Isaac was Abraham’s only son, “King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
      And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.” Since the Koran was written after the Bible, I suspect that it was written by one who wanted to start “another true” religion.
      As for another illegal alien in our country…this one is only here because of the president we now have.

      • Maynard

        Maybe the problem is that God countermanded Abraham’s opinion that the son by the Egyptian was his son. He told Abram to change his name to Abraham and Sarai to change her name to Sarah. She was supposed to be in her 90′s when Isaac was born and Abraham was “ninety and nine.” If you do believe that you’ll be amongst those of greatest faith. I do not.
        If you had read my comment to it’s conclusion you would see I do not condone Obama’s signing of NDAA 2012 giving him the power to use the military to arrest and indefinitely detain US citizens. Nor do I appreciate Congress’ appropriation of $63 BILLION for domestic drones to spy on, intimidate and even kill us without due process.
        Those who seek to villify Obama, remember that he is not alone on his attacks on our liberties. Bush foisted the Patriot Act and Homeland Security on us. They are both complicit.
        So are all the major candidates except Ron Paul. Our liberties need to be restored and then other matters can follow.
        I agree that Obama’s uncle should be deported AFTER his hearing, if it determines he is here illegally. All people deserve rights and due process. We have amended our Constitution to include EVERYONE in the statement from our Declaration of Independence, that “all men are created equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

      • eddie47d

        Thanks for some common sense reasoning Maynard and it is rather unfortunate that Ken felt he had to go off on you.

    • littlebill24

      yes and thats the news media was given orders to black out RON PAUL as much as they can Obama back the musilums and the karan and there laws all the time braken all the constitutions laws and rights of the U.S.A. if you don’t beleave that just stand on any courner and read from the holy bible you will be arreasted fined but a muslium can stand on any courner and read from the koran they will not be broutherd or fined now tell whats roung with this picture thats anouther reason i’ll vote for RON PAUL

  • retiredairforce

    Just as in LA where cops no longer impound the cars of illegal aliens driving without licenses, our laws apply only to citizens and legal residents. He has been given permission to kill innocent Americans just like the thousands of other illegal aliens who killed thousands of innocent Americans. And this guy is an illegal alien who shouldn’t be in this country to begin with.
    Politicians, cops and judges are corrupt. We quickly are becoming the same lawless and corrupt third world sewer like the sewers from which illegal aliens are fleeing.

  • http://Yahoo Pat Smith

    This sickens me! Why has he not been deported? If this were any other person, in this country illegally, there would be action. What a disgrace to our country. Obama has been nothing but an embarrassment and his family has entitlements that few enjoy. People, wake up!

  • thatswellguyandy

    Jimmy Carter had his brother, Billy. Obama has his uncle. Any other similarities here? Is Obama’s grass roots re-election campaign being run by the Russians too, just like Jimmy Carter’s was back in 1980? Billy had his beer, Billy Beer, but I’m betting Onyango here will have his very own vodka, made in Russia, proceeds going to the Obama get out the vote effort. Maybe it would help out in crafting more detailed, comprehensive legislation, too… crazy! It couldn’t hurt.

  • Frank

    With our current government, obviously anything goes. How has this man been getting to and from work the past 45 days with a revoked license (i.e. bus, train, friend, neighbor)?


    From my experience in Australia where laws are created by politicians who are usually rejected Attorneys at law, it happens often that those new laws are open for various interpretations when they are examined by the Courts whose members have greater experience in the intepretation of laws. This case is just another similar case nothing less nothing more and who cares that he might be related to the President.

    The only way your going to get water tight laws is to have judges framing the new laws for presentation to your parliament from the very beginning. This would involve a siesmic shift in the way things are done in both USA & Australia and payments to judges would be in the $millions for their expertise to be employed. What are the chances this will happen? NIL at this stage.

    So…………how many of us here think that 0bama’s uncle will be deported – again???
    If there is an order to deport him – how many here think he will go back to Africa???
    If he doesn’t go back to Africa – how many here think he will get asylum or amnesty???
    How the hell did he get a license in the first place??? I live in Massachusetts & I need a social security number to get one of those privileges.
    How many here think 0bama’s illegal alien drunk driving uncle 0mar got/bought a social security card from the same place as 0bama???
    Framingham, MA is a hotspot for illegal alien criminal activity. I know it – the police know it – obviously Uncle 0mar knows it, too.

    ““He met all of the criteria,” said Registry of Motor Vehicles spokeswoman Sara Lavoie.”

    Really? He’s illegal (should be deported) and illegal aliens can NOT work, legally! Why is he allowed to be employed, if he is illegal?

    Like Obama’s granny, this is just more of the same illegal influence the President is exercising.

  • Dens

    Hey! What’s the problem? Laws and rules are “white” things. If the so-called President can lie and break every law in the book to get what he wants and doesn’t even have a legal birth cirtificate or social security card then there is no reason why his drunken uncle even needs a stinkin drivers license. Cheers.

    We already gave his illegal Aunt amnesty, now we are going to grant it to his Uncle?
    AND HOW does an illegal alien work without proper SS#? HOW is he doing this Mass?
    He should be deported for breaking our laws, OR make Obama RESPONSIBLE for his Aunt’s and Uncle’s costs to the US! I’m fed up to here with the illegal aliens in this country.
    Sign up at and ask Congress WHY H.R.2885 is still in committee in Dave Camp’s ways and means committee, call him and ask WHY this is not brought up for a vote. It is the Mandatory E-Verify bill! No jobs for LEGAL citizens BUT illegal aliens are given free rein to run everywhere, having anchor babies at great cost to a nation that is OUT OF MONEY!

And, he has a job, too, and needs the driver’s license for his “illegal” job? DAMN! Is this what our soldiers (all military) people are being disabled or killed for? So illegals can get driver’s licenses and jobs, and “normal” Americans are starving and robbing banks (for just $1) so they can get 3 hots and a cot? Stop changing the subject folks. THIS PIECE-OF-HUMAN-SEWAGE IS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN; HE HAS NO RIGHTS UNDER OUR CONSTITUTION. But, that’s ok. Who am I to judge.

    “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,”

    Well, well. Isn’t that exactly the way Obama interprets the law, Constitution and Declaration of Independence and then manipulates them as he sees fit?

    It was my understanding that when Uncle Onyango was arrested for DUI he was also cited for driving without a license so, why, in all that’s Holy, should he be given a Hardship License or any kind of license that he doesn’t deserve. Massachusetts must be a great and lenient state to live in. Of course, we all saw that when Kennedy had his ‘Chappaquiddick escapade. They seem to make the law up as they go along and for the sake of convenience. Look at all the duds that have come out of that state – to name two: Kerry and Romney. To normal people, this seems to be an open and shut case. He’s guilty of DUI and ten times more guilty of being an illegal alien evading deportation and should be sent back to Kenya ASAP, no detours allowed.

      Obama is SUPPOSE to be in the White House for ALL people, not just for black people! You certainly sound like a racist to me.

      Can you honestly say you like the direction America is headed? If so, then you didn’t come from America and don’t know what it use to be like to live here. A person had freedom. We had clean food and water and no, I don’t blame Obama for the poison in our food because it was there before he came along but he didn’t do anything to stop it. Just as the Patriot Act, he didn’t reverse that either or the NDAA.

        Wrong answer Tbone! We don’t like Obama bin Laden because he is a lib, gay loving, baby killing, marxist, not because of his skin tone. A poll was done before by The Patriot Update and they asked if I would vote for Marco Rubio or Condelizza Rice for VP, I voted for Condi. So I guess your crap about being racist is a lie. Playing the race card? Classic liberal strategy. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!
