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 beg to disagree with you. This is the issue. Ask Edward Johnson, Puritan contemporary of Mass. Gov. John Winthrop. (if he were alive today :)
"Those who are chosen to a place in government, must be men truly fearing God, wise and learned in the truths of Christ...Neither will any Christian of a sound judgement vote for any, but those who earnest contend for the faith."
Glad you found this Jim, two of those donors are involved in the controversey of the new Mosque, that they ARE building in Orland Pk!
Because if our side is not booed off the stage immediately for bigotry (not all Muslims are a threat), the question is easily answered, because there is only one correct answer. Once we get the only answer we could have possibly received, we cannot even verify the truth in it. In the end, we make him the victim because we are questioning his character on account of his heritage. There are hundreds of opportunities from his own record to question his character. This one is something that is best left to someone else.
Besides, he is already on the record as saying that he believes no one goes to Hell. That does not square with a Muslim's beliefs. Unitarianism, while its "practitioners" consider themselves Christians, is mostly considered a cult by contemporary mainstream theologians (Catholics, Baptists, Methodists, etc.).
So unless you are a Christian you should hold political office. Given the Puritan definition of Christian, most office holders would have to resign.
Since Aug 11, 2004
I do not know Martin, I just want the truth about Obama, I have alot to lose with him and Durbin being my Senators!
When I have more time, I'm going to pull Osama/Obama's entire list of muslim benefactors. They're trying to sneak one of their own into the Senate and it's time for Obama/Osama to be exposed.
So I'm not alone. We must have struck a nerve.
Anyone else being harassed by Obama supporters?
In his book he stated he was as a boy, but now claims Catholicism
Silly, I meant two lovely ladies from TM who have been working on researching Obama ;)
As I've been saying, though, this is all besides the point. I'm trying to correct the errors as people make them about what Obama believes, but I'm quickly beginning to see that I cannot keep up with all of them. Therefore, I will abandon this thread and leave the posters to their own devices.
To anyone who wants to start digging into Osama's muslim benefactors. Just enter "Obama" in the "Recipient" field.
I have hitched my 'wagon' to :
Dr. Alan Keyes!
Do you get that?
He was my choice in the presidential primary, he is my choice for Senate here and I thank him for coming to Illinois!
Obama was actually born in Hawaii. His father, also named Barack Obama, was a foreign student there. His mother, Ann, was white, and only eighteen when she married his father. She and her parents, originally from Kansas, had moved to Honolulu. When her husband left for Harvard, she and their toddler stayed behindthere was no money in his scholarship for them to go Eastand the father ultimately returned alone to Kenya, where he worked as a government economist. Baracks mothers second marriage, to an Indonesian oil manager, occasioned a move to Jakarta, when Barack was six. He lived there for four years, and in his book he writes about his time in Indonesia as simultaneously lush and a harrowing exposure to tropical povertymore harrowing, perhaps, for his mother than for the little boy who barely remembered any other life. Then Barack returned to Hawaii, where he was brought up largely by his grandparents. The family lived in a small apartmentBaracks grandfather was a furniture salesman and, later, an unsuccessful insurance agent; his grandmother worked in a bankbut Barack managed to get into Punahou School, Hawaiis top prep academy. His mother always said that he got his brains from his father, and he was raised on tales of his fathers brilliance. The great man wrote to them regularly, but, though he travelled around the world on official business for Kenya, he visited only once, when Barack was ten.
I am a Christian," the 42-year-old Illinois state senator ( Obama) and Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate says, ...
"So, I have a deep faith," Obama continues. "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.
"That there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there's an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived."
It's perhaps an unlikely theological position for someone who places his faith squarely at the feet of Jesus to take, saying essentially that all people of faith -- Christians, Jews, Muslims, animists, everyone -- know the same God.
That depends, Obama says, on how a particular verse from the Gospel of John, where Jesus says, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but by me," is heard.
THIS DOES NOT SOUND LIKE A CHRISTIAN , BUT SOMEONE SIMPLY PLAYING POLITICS.
Keyes is not the topic of this thread. Obama is, and the messenger is flawed.
I know there are many Jewish areas with multiple businesses, in advertising I do not know
