NEW YORK, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Out2.com's independent contrarian columnist, Andy Martin, will publish a column and hold simultaneous news conferences in New York and London on Wednesday, August 11th to disclose he believes Barack Obama is a political fraud who "lied to the American people." Martin has asked Crown Books to stop sales of Obama's book because of its fraudulent content. Martin says Obama may be a threat to the Jewish community.
NEWS CONFERENCE DETAILS:"I feel sad having to expose Barack Obama," says Martin, "but the man is a complete fraud. The truth is going to surprise, and disappoint, and outrage many people who were drawn to him. He has lied to the American people, and he has sought to misrepresent his own heritage.

"Obama's life story is vastly different from the one he portrays. My point: if he will lie about his mother and father, what else is he lying about? Can we expect 'bimbo eruptions?'
"Fiction: Obama stated in his Convention speech: 'My father ... grew up herding goats.' The 'goat herder' claim has been repeated endlessly. It is a lie. Fact: Obama's grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama was a prominent and wealthy farmer. His son, Obama's father, was a child of privilege, not privation. He was an outstanding student, not a herdsman.
"Fiction: Obama was given an 'African' name. Fact: Obama is a Muslim who has concealed his religion. I am a strong supporter of the Muslim community, and I believe Muslims have been scapegoated. Obama has a great opportunity to be forthright. Instead, he has treated his Muslim heritage as a dark secret. His grandfather was named 'Hussein.' That is an Arabic-Muslim, not African, name. Hussein was a devout Muslim and named his son, Barack Senior, 'Baraka.' Baraka is an Arabic word meaning 'blessed.' Baraka comes out of the Koran and Arabic, not Africa.
"Barack Senior was also a devoted Muslim, and also chose a Muslim name for his son, our own Barack Obama, Junior. Again, his name was an Arabic and Koranic.
Obama has spent a lifetime running from his family heritage and religious heritage. Would his father have given his son a Koranic name if the father was not a devout Muslim? Obama's stepfather was also a Muslim. Obama will be the first Muslim-heritage senator; he should be proud of that fact. There is nothing to be ashamed of in any of the three great Abrahamic religions.
"Fiction: Obama Senior was a harmless student 'immigrant' who came to the United States only to study. Fact: Obama was part of one of the most corrupt and violent organizations in Africa: the Kenyatta regime. Obama's father ran back to Kenya soon after the British left. It is likely Obama's father had Mau Mau sympathies or connections, or he would not have been welcomed into the murderous inner circle of rapists, murderers, and arsonists. I believe Obama's secret shame at his family history of rape, murder and arson is what actualizes him. Our research is not yet complete. We are seeking to examine British colonial records. Our investigation to date has drawn on information on three continents.
"And what about Obama's beloved Kenyan brothers and sisters? None of his family was invited to Boston to share his prominence. Are his relatives being kept in the closet? Where are they? More secrecy, more prevarication.
"It is time for Barack Obama to stop presenting a fantasy to the American people. We are forgiving and many would still support him. It may well be that his concealment is meant to endanger Israel. His Muslim religion would obviously raise serious questions in many Jewish circles where Obama now enjoys support," Martin states.
"Our investigation is continuing. In he meantime, Crown Books should stop selling Obama's novelization of his life. We have asked Crown to do that. Obama is living a lie."

I have my opinion on this guy .. time will tell if my thinking is right
I will give him credit on the convention speech though ... a real smooth talker
OK...I stand corrected. He does say he is a Christian there, if a rather indifferentist one.
Exactly- It only matters what the person up for election has done- this is the United States not Europe, ancestry should not matter. I don't care if Obama's father was up for sainthood, I still won't vote for him.
Holly Cannollii! Let the party and the debates begin!!
Love the end of the press release:
Obama is "living a lie."
Many of us Chicago/Illinois Freepers attended the rally Sunday, what would you like to know?
I've already mailed this to a few folks and the man holding the press conference and I can guarantee Unpun,TheRightGuy and many are on this -g-
I'd wait to let the dust settle on this one.
Just as I wish others had on the O'Connor/Gonzales business.
The internet makes everyone a bit trigger-happy.
So? That does not make the truth about Obama any less true, I am glad this man is running especially, c considering this:
I SUPPORT MAXIMUM EFFORTS IN THE WAR AGAINST TERRORISM.
What his father was is all you are focusing on. Step back a little.
I've read that he is unitarian, not muslim. If true, his name is immaterial; it just shows what his father was, which is not binding on him.
What are the SECRETS he will Know about our country??? How will he use these secrets??? A Muslim is First a Muslim, then a countryman. Beware.
You need to read the article a bit closer. Obama DOES NOT have a Christian worldview.
He is quoted as saying:"I am a Christian. So, I have a deep faith. I'm rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people."
Jesus says, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father, except by Me. John 14:6
Really? Why does Martin have a legal defense fund and does NOT list his issues on his website?
We've seen this guy before. As a Floridian said, Martin's a nut job.
Be careful in hitching your wagon to a nut job.
Boy Howdy. The Sh*t is going to hit the fan now. Let me get some popcorn and turn on the TV.
