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."

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!
You wouldn't vote for Obama anyway,muslim or not. He's a liberal on the order of Ted Kennedy and Effin'.
First of all, Obama attended a Muslim school for part of his education. North African Muslims are hardly less radical than Middle Eastern and the fact that Obama never really mentions specific religion. I never heard him say that he was a Christian, I have only heard invoke the name of God, like an evangelist preacher, trying to stir up the folks. As for him being more liberal than he lets on, read this. I do not trust this guy.
The Barack Obama Myth
By Michael P. Tremoglie
FrontPageMagazine.com | August 6, 2004
If the Democratic National Convention failed to produce a bounce for John Kerry, the same cannot be said of Illinois State Senator Barack Obama, the Democratic Partys candidate for United States Senator from Illinois. While this rising star in the Democratic Party spouted some conservative themes during his speech, the rhetoric may be deceptive. While Obama spoke of individual responsibility such as stating that the government cannot teach kids to read, parents must his ideology and voting record is quite different.
Obama is very liberal. Among his campaign contributors are George Soros, People for the American Way, pro-abortion groups and teachers unions. Soros got his money's worth from Obama, who turned out redmeat antiwar quotations during the run-up to Operation Iraqi Freedom. At an October 2002 antiwar rally, he repeated the false "economy and war" canard of fanatical antiwar liberals. Obama said:
"I don't oppose all wars What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Roves to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income...to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression."
When confronted with this quotation by Tim Russert on "Meet the Press," Obama shrugged it off, not choosing to repeat its conspiracy theories. Russert uncharacteristically did not press the issue. But the quotation would seem to indicate Obama's inclination to parrot the Michael Moore Left.
In fact, Obama has bristled at being referred to as a mainsteam Democrat. When he was accused by Black Commentator magazine as being co-opted by the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC). Black Commentator believes the more moderate rhetoric of the DLC and Bill Clinton's willingness to compromise with Republicans for political gain have harmed the party. It believes the DLC's candidates are corrupted by corporations, and refers to conservative black politicians as "black stealth candidates," which is how they characterized Obama.
Obama was so disturbed by this, he wrote a letter to Black Commentator stating:
"To begin with, neither my staff nor I have had any direct contact with anybody at DLC I don't know who nominated me for the DLC list of 100 rising stars I certainly did not view such inclusion as an endorsement on my part of the DLC platform I spend much of my time with audiences trying to educate them on the dangers of both the Patriot Act, Patriot Act 2, and the rest of John Ashcroft's assault on the Constitution In the last three months alone, I passed and sent to Illinois governor's desk 25 pieces of major progressive legislation, including groundbreaking laws mandating the videotaping of all interrogations and confessions in capital cases; racial profiling legislation; a new law designed to ease the burden on ex-offenders seeking employment; and a state earned income tax credit that will put millions of dollars directly into the pockets of Illinois' working poor."
His voting record certainly displays the ideology characteristic of an indulgent liberal. (Sorry, "Progressive.") Obama favors abortion, socialized medicine, and Affirmative Action. Obama sponsored a bill in the Illinois legislature requiring local police departments in Illinois to record the race of anyone stopped for questioning so that the data can be used to track the occurrence of racial profiling. He opposes a $2,000 tax credit for retirement and has voted against private gun ownership, mandatory sentencing and the death penalty. During his tenure as a legislator, he abstained from voting about an abortion parental notification bill and on legislation that would keep pornographic video stores and strip clubs from within 1,000 feet of schools and churches. He has also voted against laws requiring students to complete suspensions before being transferred to other school districts. He abstained from legislation requiring adult prosecution for students who fire guns on school grounds. He opposed legislation making it a criminal offense for accused gang members to associate with known gang members.
Ironically, Obama is the candidate of the racial segregationist. It is not because segregationists want him to be a Senator. It is because he is classified African-American using the standards of racial segregationists.
Obama is called an AfricanAmerican. However, Obama is half-white. His father, who was black, abandoned him and his mother when he was about two years old. He lived with his white mother and white grandparents.
Considering a mixed race individual an African-American is a typical liberal practice. They routinely refer to anyone who is partially black as black. Tiger Woods, Halle Berry and Mariah Carey are all mixed race celebrities regularly referred to by the liberal media as black. Tiger Woods has had the gall to complain about this. (With good reason; his mother is Asian.)
Ironically, this custom by liberals and Democrats of referring to partially black people as black is simply a reiteration of the old racist, Jim Crow, "one-eighth law." In racist locales, such as segregation-era Louisiana, people with as little as one-eighth African-American ancestry were classified as black. This classification led to dramatic curtailments of freedom. In Missouri and Mississippi, "The marriage of a white person with a negro or mulatto or person who shall have one-eighth or more of negro blood, shall be unlawful and void." Obama is black only by the standards of white segregationists.
By insisting that mixed-race individuals be considered black, Democrats -- the party of the unreconstructed South -- are displaying their segregationist roots.
Obama the candidate is conservative only when addressing a national television audience. Ironically, the oddball Black Commentator magazine is partially correct. Obama is a stealth candidate -- a liberal stealth candidate.
At first I thought you said PIG. Oops! hehehe
As for the goatherder story being false, that sounds about right. After all, what simple, Kenyan goatherder gets to do a Ph.D. at Harvard? This is such an American cliche: not the "only in America" story that Obama told, but the child of privilege who turns his life into a rags-to-riches story.
I see you have had Freepmail too.
I think the Alan Keyes situation will overturn a lot of 'rocks' so to speak. I'm not familiar with Andy Martin but I never believed that goatherding story.
They all seem to just lie for a living. I cannot think of any prominent Democrat that is basically honest. Not one. Even Joe Lieberman, too moderate to get more than 0.00001% of the votes this time lied constantly and egregiously during the Gore campaign. The supposedly respectable Gephardt lied like a rug throughout the Clinton impeachment.
Can anyone name ONE honest Democrat?
Hey that's an idea! The Illinois FReepers should invite Obama to PIG ROAST!!
Then we'll see if he dares to eat a PORK sandwich!
Clever. We are at war with Mohammedan terrorists, in case you didn't know.
I want every Muslim who won't swear an allegiance to the USA out of this country tonight. I will report everyone of them to Homeland Security if necessary. They want the destruction of our society and we either remove them from the country or kill them before they kill us. I prefer removing them.
Sending nasty Freepmail instead of, or in conjunction with debating on threads is a DUer m.o. I went through that with a guy who used the names "Thanos," "Thanoz," and at least one other other one; the names all came from a comic book series.
Yes of unborn babies!
More than 3,000 a day.
Heck, John Kerry passed as Irish for nearly 30 years.
Now that have uttered the names, he/she may make a reappearance.
My opinion: You are either being disingenuous or naive if you think my father was a goat herder is pretty much the same as his family owned a prosperous farm. In the former, one pictures a poor man herding a handful of scrawny goats through dusty village streets. In the latter...well, there are some damned fine farms in Africa.
At any rate: This is not about the veracity of this reporter's claims, in the least.
(Keyser Sose was an ammateur compared to these scum.)
Obama is a liberal, and gilded the lily a bit about his grandfather perhaps, but this article is just spin.
Even worse, his mother is from Kansas!!!!!!!!!!!!
If the Democrats tell the lies long and often enough, their lies will become truths...and they will be the party of truth.
If the Republicans continue to tell the truth...and are called "liars" long and often enough, the truth will become "lies" and they will be the party of "liars."
as did I -what an idiot troll-
I'm sure the Lord demonstrated His intervention
I guess he had a hitlist from this thread and is a DU troll, muslim mole...hey we have a poem going!
What bother's me is on google/yahoo search there are many Andy Martin's, how do we even know this is the same man who called the press conference as the one taunted about running for Fla Senate?
You left out the sassy, disrepectful 12 year old twit they managed to squeeze into the schedule.
Little loud mouth
Correction: he is a Unitarian.
But you're right. This is a pathetic piece, and deserves less of our attention than it has received.
Well if you consider the United Church of Christ Unitarian, OK. But it really isn't, although it is in the same ball park in some respects. The Unitarians broke off from this church long ago.
If this is the same Florida Andy Martin, he is an oft arrested nut ball. He goes off the deep end,and has run for numerous offices in Florida. He is a Palm Beach county type former republican turned libertarian I believe,and if this is him take everything he says with a grain of salt for now. It does not sound like him however,he would not be coherent,and would not stick up for muslims.
