President Obama suddenly admitted that he lived with his illegal immigrant uncle “Omar” in the U.S. some 20-something years ago. This move has now plummeted Obama’s credibility to degrees that are despicable for these reasons. The recant makes it seem that Obama lied. President Obama knowingly harbored an illegal alien in this country, for well over 50 years. He in fact had even resided in the same home with the Kenyan immigrant, who happens to be his uncle. The White House now claims that no one previously asked Obama about this relationship; suggesting the old saying, “Say nothing unless asked.” And further, now declaring estrangement from the uncle for the better part of 20 years, Obama spoke with his uncle only 10 years ago. He still knew that he was holding this “secret” from the US Immigration Office; and currently poses as someone not privy-to news reports, we ask. How dumb does Obama think the people of the United States are?
Of course, Obama knew that he has a Kenyan uncle named Onyango Okech Obama, (Omar, for short) and that he arrived in the US in 1963, under a student visa. The President’s late father (Omar’s brother) helped Omar make the transition to the U.S. Obama knew this, because, being family, he stayed with his uncle Omar in Cambridge, MA. for three weeks in the late 80’s while Obama attended Harvard Law School. And it just so happens that, in 1986 and 1989, the President’s uncle, Omar was to have been deported back to Kenya, but somehow he “beat the system” through to current day, when on December 3, 2013, Omar received official rights to remain in the U.S., permanently.
Back in 2011, Framingham, MA. Police had arrested [Obama’s uncle] Omar for drinking and driving, at which time Omar had allegedly suggested that he would “call the White House.” Then, during his deportation hearing on Tuesday, Omar testified that he has a nephew and that the nephew is President, Barack Obama. He then included that his nephew Obama had stayed with him those 3-weeks back in the late 80’s, and afterwards added that, in their tradition, one’s brother’s kids are yours as well.
In 2011, the White House answered the question about this relationship by claiming that the President had never met his Kenyan uncle. Today, due to the breaking news that the US Immigration judge granted “Uncle Omar” permanent US residency and Omar testifying about whom his nephew is; the President of the United States, Barack Obama had lived with Omar. President Obama suddenly concedes living with his illegal immigrant uncle in the U.S. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney quickly switched the former claim with a new twist, that “no one had consulted with the President himself about the relationship” and that this was why the administration had said that the two had never met.
Carney told reporters that when this question came up, people had looked at the record and at Obama’s book and there was no “evidence” that they had met. Moreover, that nobody spoke to the President and that this was why the administration had conveyed that the two had never met.
This entire “Obama hides status of immigrant uncle by distancing himself from him” story cannot possibly sit well with the worldwide audience observing President Obama suddenly and his sudden admission of living with his illegal immigrant uncle in the U.S. It just makes this president seem like a really-bad liar.
