Barack Obama’s Brother George Obama Arrested for Marijuana possession … Maybe He was Hanging with Michael Phelps


Wake up the echo of arrested brothers of Presidents past …

Barack Obama’s brother, George Obama, was arrested in Kenya for possession of marijuana, but did he in hail? It would appear that Obama’s little brother is still living in the Nairobi slum. The Powers That Be ask a great question in their post ‘The Audacity of Dope: Obama’s Brother Arrested for Drug Possession, is Barack Obama’s half brother a black Billy Carter, or a Kenyan Roger Clinton … maybe a little of both?


(H/T: The Powers That Be)

As Suitably Flip states … “Let’s face it – you’re not truly President until your brother gets busted”.

We would ask the same question as The Gateway Pundit does, how would the media have handles this story if George W. Bush was the President and his half brother was arrested for pot possession? I think we know the answer. Interestingly enough the media is making the point that Obama and George barely know each other. So!

There is no truth to the rumor that George Obama was seen hanging with 14 time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Michael Phelps doing bong hits. The Audacity of Dope, indeed.


Speaking of DOPES!!! It is being reported that Michael Phelps was caught in several  pictures smoking a bong at a University of South Carolina party in early November, 2008. According to reports from The Star Magazine he was partying like it was 1999.

This is why Olympic athletes are to always keep training and never take time off to be distracted by the far too many temptations in life. The squeaky clean, All-American boy image of Michael Phelps is gone. No longer will he be on a box of Wheaties, but instead Zig-zag paper. Is Michael Phelps endorsement and Olympic career … Up in Smoke?

UPDATE I: Phelps acknowledges photo using pot pipe and bad behavior

This is the reason why our heros should never be athletes. If you want to find a real hero … look to the US military, there are unknown names of brave men and woman every day doing acts of heroism that you will never hear about.

Olympic great Michael Phelps acknowledged “regrettable” behavior and “bad judgment” after a photo in a British newspaper Sunday showed him inhaling from a marijuana pipe.

In a statement to The Associated Press, the swimmer who won a record eight gold medals at the Beijing Games did not dispute the authenticity of the exclusive picture published Sunday by the tabloid News of the World.

“I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment,” Phelps said in the statement released by one of his agents. “I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.”

      I saw this this morning and knew immediately you would write on this. Lol. Thanks for not disappointing..

      I guess everyone has a Roger Clinton, Billy Carter, Frank Stallone in their family.

      I’m not sympathetic at all. Obama chastised us all about being our brother’s keeper, but—I would hate to be President with a mother-in-law like mine. She is one wild Indian. It would be a daily headline. She calls her physicians the F word with ers added on the end. How would that look in the newspapers?

      I am fine with it being reported as these are people in the public eye or related to someone in the public eye, but geesh! Come on! I object only on the grounds that this juicy gossip took the space that could’ve been used for something that is actually important. An olympic gold medal winner was caught in a photo from college smoking a bong? And B.O.’s half bro or step bro, whatever, was arrested years ago for possession of pot. Ok, so what. Surely there is no one left on the planet who in their teens or early twenties who didn’t take a toke at least once!

      I just can’t believe that there isn’t some much more important matter that could’ve been brought to light in the inches this gossip took up in newspaper/magazines etc. I don’t know if either was reported in our major papers but I hope not as this belongs in The National Enquirer.

      Red- Yes we Cannabis & did he in hail? lol

      PS. Re:Phelps—Agree with you 100%…your point on who the real heroes are vs. who should be adorned as true hereos the US! Such a shame much of today’s youth idolize over-paid Pro Athletes and SOME filthy rich Rap Artists who are former drug-dealers who condone violence & murder,etc. The list could go on and on….while many of the true heroes remain unspoken & seek no publicity, Multi-million dollar contracts or fame.

      People need to realize Phelps is 23 YEARS OLD! So what if he smokes weed! I’m tired of people standing on their self righteous soap boxes like they are perfect and have never ever done anything wrong! Give me a break and leave this guy alone. The ONLY mistake he made was doing it out in the open.

    13. ANewGirl on February 3rd, 2009 11:09 am

      #12-Scott—We are all entitled to our own opinions. Personally speaking, I don’t consider myself as a self righteous soap boxer and know I’m certainly far from perfect. Since we are all humans, is it not fair to assume that we’ve all made mistakes? So,what-some of us were having a little fun with it- chill out, Scott.

      It was just Michael Phelps smoking a bong as you say. Pretty STUPID mistake getting caught overall, don’t you think? He’s just a Olympic Athlete & Professional Swimmer, Scott… he’s not a true Hero or God. Don’t you think someone in his position should have been a little more careful where he decided to light up? Is this the image now I want my 14-yr. Old Son to see plastered all over the Internet? Not for anything, I overheard my Son & some other boys talking about it after Hockey practice yesterday. Niceeeeeeeee–now they think it’s cool that if this successful OLYMPIC ATHLETE can smoke a little weed—why can’t they, too?

      Don’t paint us with all the same brushstrokes, Scott….I think Phelps really is an incredible Athelete but I do think this was stupid and showed a lack of common sense, EVEN for a 23 year old.

      We’re all entitled to express our own views & opinions …it’s what makes life a little more interesting….diversity & variety….kinda’ spices things up a bit..don’t you think?
