Columnist Says Barack Obama 'Lied To The American People;'
Asks Publisher to Withdraw Obama's Book

Tuesday August 10, 9:22 pm ET

NEW YORK, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ --'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.


New York:
Time/date: Wednesday, August 11, 2004 11:00 A.M.
Location: Northeast Corner of Fifth Avenue and 65th
Street (Temple Emanu-El)

Time/date: Wednesday, August 11, 2004 4:00 P.M.
Location: 2 Dryden Mansions, Queens Club Gardens London W14

"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."

The Dem Convention had a Impeached President speak on the first night
On the second night they had fat drunk who left a young to drown in his car
The third night they had a guy who lied about who he is
And the final night they had a Flip Flopping Apocalypse Now wanna be accept the nomination!!!

Don't forget the Anti-American slob who makes bad movies

"What does his fsther's past have to do with him? If your father is a Muslim, then you must be labelled a Muslim even if you practice another religion? Is Islam a race? Unless the columnist can show that Barack himself is a Muslim who is pretending to be Christian (not his father, siblings, etc.) , then this is silly. The goat herder lie is the only one that is interesting to me, sort of like Edward's "son of a mill worker" claim when his father was the manager."

I agree.

I'd like to know if his family owned(s) slaves and if he benefited from affirmative action. I would like to see the end of A.A. and think it bad enough that people who's ancestors were never slaves benefit from it. If his ancestors ever owned slaves, and he benefited from A.A., that, well, if I said what I'm thinking I'd be band.

I left that out on purpose, I was waiting for someone to mention that STAIN Michael Moore. If I was running the Bush campaign, I would put together a video of John Kerry heaping praise on the Hollywood crowd when he said they represented the "Heart & Soul of America" and then show Michael Moore sitting next to Jimmy Carter in the Presidential Box at the Dem Convention and then to the clip where Michael Moore compared the enemy we are fighting in Iraq to our Minute Men

Reckon he spent Xmas in Cambodia in 68? If not, why not?

No he was too young to be sent by "President Nixon" in 1968.

There are many more press releases like this at his website. Do you really want FR to be associated with this nutjob Andy Martin?

How are we associated with him? We are simply amusedly commenting on these allegations. It is nice to see Obama attacked by a fellow Lefite rather than a "businessman associated with Karl Rove", lol.

I posted during the Dem convention--forget what thread--that Obama's father was an African Muslim.

He obviously comes from a wealthy African family. His portrayal of his father as a goatherd was disingenuous to say the least. Yes, he could have actually helped to heard goats, in the context of being a wealthy landowner's son. However, portraying him as a goatherd suggests a far more lowly and humble origin.

I don't know this writer/reporter, but I think it is interesting and probably true. That Obama has lied is obvious without this post/story because his actions and voting record as posted and written about earlier do not fit.

If Durbin is your Sen. perhaps you can answer a question I have had for a long time. Why does IL send this man back to the Senate? He talks like a complete off the wall nutcase liberal. I mean, his assertions (accusations) of the Repubs and Bush are ludicrous.

You may have interest in this thread...Citizen alert: Wirsing and Obama are stalking our livers
A person's body is a temple. Thus says the Lord. But why is it that the Illinois legislature, led by radical muslim activist Sen. Barack Obama (D-Chicago) and DeKalb County's own Rep. David Wirsing (R-Sycamore) are trying to defile that temple?
Looks like this info was known, by The Illinois Leader anyway, way back in September 2003.
Nothing new here. Ignorance still prevails and it still causes Democrat bliss.

The Wexler kid, Ilana Wexler. Among her other wit & wisdom, she dissed Vice President Cheney.

I missed it to; I was only able to read it.

A sample:

[AUTHENTICITY CERTIFIED: Text version below transcribed directly from audio]

My name is Ilana Wexler. I'm 12 years old, and I am the founder of "Kids for Kerry."

Kids for Kerry is a grassroots organization of kids that support John Kerry, want to help their futures, and get active in politics...

...When our Vice President had a disagreement with a Democratic senator, he used a REALLY BAD word.

If I said that -- If I said that word, I would be put in a "time-out."

I think he should be put in a time-out...

...Kids need -- Kids need positive -- Kids need positive role models in politics. And our Vice President deserves a longgggggg time-out.

She is from Oakland, Ca; and I have tried to learn without success whether she is related to Robert Wexler.

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?

Good question. I guess we don't ... yet.

That guy is a commie pinko islamofascist dog. The people in the conservative parts of Illinois (any where outside of Chicago) do not want this man in the Senate. I think he is trying to be another Harold Ford Jr. The man is divisive despite his speech at the DNC convention.
