Obama’s Hut Brother Arrested For Drugs

From a sympathetic Associated Press:

Obama’s Kenyan relative arrested on drug charge

By TOM ODULA

NAIROBI, Kenya — The half-brother of President Barack Obama was arrested for alleged possession of marijuana on Saturday near his home in a Nairobi shantytown, police said.

George Obama, who is in his 20s and barely knows the president, had one joint of marijuana on him, said Joshua Omokulongolo, the police chief in the area.

"He is not a drug peddler," Omokulongolo told The Associated Press. "But it’s illegal, it’s a banned substance."

George Obama has a court appearance scheduled Monday morning…

Several of President Obama’s Kenyan relatives went to Washington, D.C., for his inauguration, but George was not among them. He lives in Huruma with extended family

He also said he was studying to be a mechanic and works with a local youth group in Huruma.

In President Obama’s book "Dreams From My Father," he describes George Obama as "a handsome, roundheaded boy with a wary gaze." …

Luckily our watchdog media has already pronounced that all stories about Mr. Obama’s extended family will only be treated as “human interest.”

Still, where does Mr. Obama (George) find the money for recreational drugs? Or does he grow his own?

Or maybe like his half-brother, he has his own set of priorities.

(Thanks to Confucius for the heads up.)

    It looks like George’s $1 a month in income is similar to the “income” reported by the needy folks back in The Moron’s hood. A little something just to qualify for the hand-outs and get the pity party going. Meanwhile, the real dough goes unreported…wouldn’t want to have to pay taxes on it or anything like that. That’s for suckers who voted for McLame.

  2. Colonel1961

    I’ll bet they only arrested him because he’s black. Just another case of The Man trying to keep a brother down! Oh, wait, his brother is The Man! Now, that’s funny…

  3. Perhaps, B HO will intercede on behalf of his half brother? After all, isn’t the Obama name sacred now in Kenya?

    Or, is this a smokescreen to embarrass the half-brother living in squalor and those who promoted him by older half-brother living the life of luxury in the U.S.?

    As to the money to purchase a joint, don’t forget that donations were taken on George’s behalf, since the wealthy older half-brother can’t be bothered by poverty stricken relatives.

  4. GuppyNblue

    What’s the big deal here? Obama himself is too weak to just say no but we were still confident that he could run our country.

    Okay, you and I didn’t elect him, but we have to take some responsibility for our standards falling so far.

  5. jrmcdonald

    Perhaps he wants to qualify for a cabinet post…

  6. heykev

    Since BHO has very poor relatives he does not help everywhere, it will be interesting to see how many end up in jail and/or try coming here illegally. Is there anywhere on the internet that tracks BHO’s relatives – showing where they live (legalally or otherwise), what they do, time spent in jail, how much they make, etc.?

  7. annabetsy

    Maybe that’s why BHO doesn’t send his impoverished brother any aid. He knows he would just waste it on drugs. He’s demonstrating tough love.

  8. TCO will bring him over on some sort of emergency medical treatment visa and put him into rehab.

    Or he will encourage George to go to Mexico, cross into California illegally, and get medical treatment for his addiction.

    Just workin’ the system, bay-bee!!!!

  9. TickTock

    As his half-brother dines on Kobi beef and caviar at the US tax-payers’ expense, poor George must shroud his apathy in a fog of forgetfulness…

    “..a handsome, round-headed boy with a wary gaze…”

    Poor kid looks just plain stoned to me.. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    Hey Obammy, how long until we’re all smokin’ Federal reefer and squatting in huts?

    Some recovery…

    • UndercoverInLA

      Supposedly not long — legalizing pot is supposed to be high on Obama’s list…as long as the govt. Gets their cut.

  10. Gila Monster

    He looks like Denzel, mellowin’ on spleef naturally.
    Juz chillin bro…. ;o)

  11. canary

    He does look nice in Michelles used designer sweater.

  12. Confucius

    For all poetry lovers, including our president:

    “Cocaine for The One, marijuana for the other one.
    Half-black is The One but still half-brother to the other one.
    While The One lives in a big white house, the other one survives in a hut with a mouse.”

    All right, you got me. I plagiarized this from real life. Just call me “The Audacity Of Hope.”

      A haiku:

      Change came not to me
      Barack king with shield and spear
      Me left in my hut

    • JohnMG

      Barack must only be a quarter-brother to George. I mean, BHO is only a “half-brother” to begin with, so, if I remember my highschool math………one-half of one-half is one-quarter. ;-}

  13. GnuCarSmell

    Barack has done nothing to help out his poverty-stricken brother, but is fond of telling others to be their brother’s keeper. I bet little bro’ George got a laugh out of that one. A dry, raspy, laugh with a slightly maniacal edge…

  14. IdahoGal

    Who was it that started a fund for the poor boy? Is this what the money was used for?

  15. canary

    Kind of yellow blood shot eyes. I wonder if he will get fired from working with a youth group. News says Kenya is excited to recieve the funds for abortions that Obama in support of his father’s dream, after Bush’s ban. I guess Obama, who according to his sister had difficulties relating to other Afro-Americans, is trying to wipe out Afro-Africans. Obama should at least help his brother’s obvious poor health. Doesn’t look “wary look” in his eyes to me, more like stoned. Have the found where Obama’s aunt is illegally hiding in America yet. Rather keep her then have those terrorist prisoners come to America.

  16. PoliteDissent

    Silly George. If he wanted to get drugs, he should go to Real America and get them from Sarah Palin’s future sister-in-law.
    Oops, guess the reminder that crystal-meth is the drug of choice for white, small town America kind of puts a damper in the racially charged comments here.

    • wardmama4

      A blood relative is a damn site different than a woman related by marriage only (did the kids even get married yet? Might not even be an in-law yet)

      .And given the rabid desire for those on the Left to find anything (real or fake) to bring down Sarah Palin – I can’t wait to find out that this was 1) planted (the drugs, not the story) 2) not crystal meth (it wasn’t, it was OxiContin – but to you guys on the Left little things like facts don’t matter), 3) not her daughter’s boyfriends mother (a bit different than a sister-in-law – for those of us with brains – where the heck are you getting your ‘facts’ ?!? because they suck big time) and/or 4) just plain made up. [People is - the only place I found the story - hardly a 'news' outlet worthy of using for proof and facts - but hey what do you care in your racist white woman bashing]

      Typical Liberal Person – throw out a ‘moral’ equivalance that has nothing to do with the topic at hand, lace it with racist accusations and not even half of the ‘moral’ equivalance was factual – and then run because debate, discussion and reality have nothing to do with what you are about.

    • gipper

      Your comments are misleading. You try to link the arrest of Sherry Johnston to the manufacture of crystal meth. Sherry Johnston was arrested for supposedly trying to sell OxyContin–not crystal meth. Though the Wasilla AREA has been dubbed the “meth capital of Alaska”, it was so dubbed AFTER Sarah Palin left the office of mayor. Palin left office in October 2002. In 2003, there were 9 meth labs discovered by police. In 2007, 42 meth labs were discovered. If anything, you can make a case FOR Sarah Palin. Things got progressively worse after she left office. Don’t believe everything you read in the HuffPo.

      Also, most of the comments here are not directed at the fact that President Obama’s brother got in trouble for drugs. Rather, the comments point out that: (1) this story will be swept under the rug by the mainstream media, and (2) the hypocrisy of President Obama. Obama has stated that we need to be our brother’s keeper. Some brother’s keeper he is.

    • gipper

      Thanks, wm4. You rounded out my comments. I wanted to say something about PD’s reasoning. You did that.

    • proreason

      “PoliteDissent” “drug of choice for white” “racially charged”

      Who is polite, and who is a racist?

      As usual, it’s the lying liberal idiot.

  17. wardmama4

    Man oh man – our hafrican poser pretending to be a leader – his gene pool is so rich:

    From his (step) grandmother – we saw where The One’s ™ stupid gene came from (his grandfather for marrying such stupid women).

    From his aunt – we saw where his taxpayer grifting gene comes from.

    And now via his half brother (and of course his stellar father) we see where his addiction & druggie genes come from.

    Now wonder the liberals love The One ™ – he is them. Adolescent, vapid, victimhoodishly entitled and of course indulgent in addiction. Also explains why The One chose so many Clintonistas – they are used to being around adolscent, vapid and addicted people.

  18. canary

    ease up on the passive polite dissent. George shared with her.

  19. Confucius

    To PoliteDissent,

    You’re out matched. Now be a good little liberal, and be a racist somewhere else. We’ll call you when we need something to laugh at.

    Translation: wardmama4 and gipper won.

  20. canary

    You can tell a child’s future by his friends.
    We have Obama’s past friends, such as; 20 year long term friendship with maniac American White hater Jeremiah Wright, longtime mentor lefty Frank Davis,
    Obama’s Neighbors: Corrupt financier and neighbor Tony Rezko, whom Obama bought part of his estate so he could live next door, and their neighbor and friend William Ayers, who bombed the USA (don’t know his reaction to Obama bombing Pakistan, but he may just like any boom)
    Obama’s new comrades to run USA, Timothy Geithern, Tom Daschle, who violate USA law by not paying taxing,
    and he’s made new friends with old enemie Hillary, who seemed to have alot of people around her pass from this life, and likes to make up war stories.
    What whiners.
    We can judge the future and leopards seldom change their spots, and dogs that lay down with fleas, get up with fleas. Hilary Clinton will teach Obama and company all the tricks of the trade.

  21. Liberals Demise

    Why didn’t George just shape shift into a goat and eat the evidence? That’s what the “Halfbro” would do.

  22. BumBastikk

    The charges against G. Obama were dropped. The user’s on S&L are just trying to spin this into something that isn’t even really worth talking about. Don’t forget that this did not take place in America, too. It’s not like BHO has direct contact with his half-brother, atm.
