Half Baked: Obama's Half Brother in Kenya Arrested for Marijuana Possession
— Ace

The AP adds helpfully:

George Obama and the president had the same father but barely know each other.

An Obama cap and a joint? This must be a first.

More here.

And yes, it took a few searches to confirm this, but he is the half-brother who lives in poverty while The One is is palling around with terrorists fashionable people in Hyde Park:

Despite his humble background, he was angered by magazine reports last year that he was living in poverty on less than a dollar a day.

I hate yelling conspiracy at the drop of a hat but Google really seems to have never heard of this guy before. Searches for all the stories about George Obama living in squalor disclose nothing. This reference was only found because it's part of an article on the pot bust.

Thanks to CJ.

9 The article says George is the son of Barack sr's second wife. That's not what I've read. Ann Dunham was his second wife. If wikipedia is correct, there were three wives and a girlfriend, and George is a product of the girlfriend.

10 And seriously, legalize it. George was the victim here.

Imagine what they would be doing with this story if one of Sarah Palin’s brothers or sisters was caught like this.

12 Well, at least the O'Bambi brothers have something in common, the propensity for doing dope.

Buyer's remorse coming. Soon we will have a Black House in Washington..and he ain't even Black!

14 Considering that Palin's kid's boyfreind's mom made the front page for the same thing, I imagine the New York Times has 40 reporters speeding to the scene as we speak.

27 Damn, the Messiah could at least order INS to hook his bro up with a green card.

28 No kidding, I've been to several Roger Waters concerts, and while I don't partake of the wacky tobaccy, every single person around us did and offered to share.

Potheads are nothing if not generous.  So, I guess the "stimulus" bill would still be on.

30 Wonder if The Chosen One is considering a CIA hit on George?  Can't look good, dining on $100 imported Japanese steak while your brother lives in poverty.  What would the MSM say? zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

31 You know what, I wouldn't fault The One a bit if he suddenly "found" a green card for his half-brother.

What's the point of being the POTUS if you don't get to get your relatives out of poverty.

32 Did they ever find that stupid fucking flying Obama pig?

Posted by: mossback at January 31, 2009 10:52 AM (in8Vs)

33 Obama wouldn't give a hair off his ass to George Obama and I'd expect the same for us citizens to tell you the truth. The only people who'll make bank off this stimulus crap are pork-sucking Democrats.

34 Man, does he look like a stoner. Stoner with an Obama hat...just like here in the U.S..

35 Potheads are nothing if not generous.

Unless you're the only one at the party who doesn't toke up. Then they turn into raving paranoiacs, accusing you of being a narc and recording everything on your video eye implants.

38 Maybe the aunt ( OO? ) that michelle malkin keeps writing about can adopt him and bring him to the US?

Posted by: Hmmmm at January 31, 2009 11:01 AM (zplc6)

39 If your half-brother, the President of the USA, sends you an "Eat Me" card everyday, you'd spark up a fatty, too. Mike Steele should fly that dude over here first class, put him in a five star hotel and bathe him in hookers and blow. After that we run him for Congress.

40 In the "you couldn't make this stuff up category", a category with "kashkari and "made off", isn't it ironic that his name is George?  Don't we all know a famous George who just left office?

Marijuana possession is illegal in sub-Saharan Africa??!! The fuck??!! I schlepped those parts for almost three years- Kenya, Angola, Namibia, and LeSotho... boo is as common there as beer here. Mind you, I was there in the late 70's, early 80's. And was usually packing an FN FAL...

This is not the Africa I knew.

61 Hmm. Speaking of brothers, there was Neil Bush, the collapse of whose corrupt Silverado Savings and Loan cost U.S. taxpayers $1.3 billion. But hell, what's a billion between us Republicans when there's a man with a joint in Kenya to write about?

Posted by: Horrible Leftist at January 31, 2009 05:21 PM (C+o8A)

62 Google's results seem normal to me - a search for "George Obama poverty" or "George Obama squalor" brings up dozens of links to various articles and sites, leaning left and right wing.

Must suck to live in poverty on a couple bucks a day while your brother is the single most powerful person in the world.

I guess Barack is not his brother's keeper.

I hope theres a plan to i.d Obama's overseas kinfolk and put them under diplomatic protective service of some kind. George is a major terrorist kidnap risk. If 2 or 3 squads of terrorist gunmen could shut India down, would it be that hard for pipe-hitting Al Qaeda operatives to snatch George from the streets of Nairobi (complete with Al Qaeda cells) and ransom his ass?

He's gotta be the softest target of Presidential vulnerability in, possibly ever. Nairobi isnt Mogadishu, but there's not many trained devoted cops walking around dedicated to protecting the public on the streets.

I think its in the security interest of the US that George not be allowed to just walk around Nairobi selling weed. The risk of his getting snatched off the street by any number of international scumbags is too great. 

Whatever you think of President Obama (not much so far), it would suck to have to deal with an incident like that. The WH would slow to a dangerous crawl for weeks, and the media/accomodationist left would go nuts demanding that Obama pay the ransom. Most likely a bad ending for everyone except the terrorists.
