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."

Hi, Newbie. How are things in Islamoville?
What Yahoo article?
JP, *if you happen to have read through it* are there any more nuggets in this thread, besides the posted press release it begins with?
I've just heard a bit about this before (not about any organized crime allegations per Sr. though). Perhaps we will see that the events bringing Alan Keyes here for this campaign are being wrought by a higher power than even Matt Drudge. ;-) As I mentioned to TRG last night, all the strange twists and turns in this senate campaign somehow feel like the amazing case of Florida 11/2004 --and I'm sure the Lord demonstrated His intervention, there.
I'm not in the Keyes campaign management of course, but I think those who are, are good, and they've had quite a while to do opposition research. Very appropriately, they will keep a great deal of what they are dealing with, to themselves. (Of course that got to the point of tragedy/ridiculousness/outrage during the Jack! campaign, but I'm willing to hope that these campaign managers are not too, to, too insular.)
I think we should all pray, work smart and hard as we are led, keep our footing, and watch....
So have I. Has any one else?
Is he a troll?????
Florida 11/2000, I mean (hopefully not again;-).
Gee, that weasely little scumbag, Obama-the-Democrat-golden-baby, is a liar.
I too got private hate mail from the Newbe Lberal, Kalkiavataram. Did you report it?
I have also.
Admin. needs to know I suppose.
It's like the dems are ccrreeeppiinngg in.
Ok....this should make all you anti-Keyes freepers concerned enough to get behind Alan Keyes, BIG TIME!! This is scary , if even half of it is true!!!!
"Kalkiavataram is a idiot. I poop on him!"
Hmmmm is the word right now; gotta wait and see more about this one.
Well, with that..............I had to go and get another A&W Diet Rootbeer!
I think Obama's father ran out on him soon after birth but we should cut him some slack on the Muslim thing. First of all most Muslims of subsahara Africa aren't of the nutty kind. Also I think Obama said he was a Christian which means he must have converted. However, I suspect he is also much more liberal than he is letting on.
That was the only O'Reilly show I've ever enjoyed. What a hoot.
Please don't lecture me on the Constitution. I have every right to choose to never vote for a Muslim. If I feel that Muslims represent a cult trying to destroy the American way of life, then I am free to not only express my displeasure but also to not vote for anyone from a group that opposes what I believe in.
Obama is a MUSLIM ping!
