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."

No but lying usually is, if you hear it in the home over and over.
So how do you want to "hear it" Hussein Obama, in Swahili, Arabic or Spanish? It means the same thing you duplicitous moron. You can't be a Christian if you don't believe that the atonement of Christ is the only thing that pardons us from our sins and makes us righteous before God.
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.
Baraka not a Kenyan name? Has Martin ever been to Kenya? Apparently not.
Please note the first sentence on this page: "Baraka, the local word for joy and well-being, expresses the flavor of enchantment surrounding this lovely Swahili style home."
Google could be his friend if he'd let it.

Um, newbie, we have spell check at FR. Use it to get the proper capitalizations ... won’t help your syntax, but it can help tighten up those capitalizations so your posts won’t look so juvenile.
Pay no attention to the FR PC Police like MHGinTN.
They’re every bit as “intoerant” and nasty as their counterparts on leftist forums.
I gather English is not your first language, and I’d like to see any of the posters to this Site who jump on every opportunity to put others down as “newbies” or rip on their grammar as opposed to appreciating the effort and responding to the content attempt to post in a second language.
Their “juvenile” arrogance and inability to keep their eye on the ball makes them part of the problem we face in this nation, rather than part of the solution.
Some of us do appreciate your interest and efforts to be encouraging to those of us who try to be less petty.
Wow! A one time poster on an osama/obama thread.
SNIFF! SNIFF!! SNIFF!!!
PING to an old thread.
Ping to an old Obama thread, from 2004.
Thank you, Rushmore Rocks. Good find! I FRmailed the ping list.
Martin says Obama may be a threat to the Jewish community.Thanks Lucy. Note: topic is from 2004.
I’m on pre order for Andy Martn’s (author of this posted article) book: Obama: The Man Behind the Mask.
His book was due out this past July. The day it was suppose to be at the warehouse from the printer’s, the book was delayed.
Andy Martin sent us, the pre orders, an email telling us that a few weeks ago. We don’t know what the delay was, or when the book is coming.
I must give credit to Spunky. She had a link to a different old thread in post 4893 on the “Long Thread”. The link to this article was in the very last post on that link.
That is Andy Martins article. His book, Obama: The Man behind the Mask was due out in July; but mysteriously got held up at the printers.
Isn’t it amazing how little we knew or understood about Obama 4 yrs ago.
Yep, but with all the intrepid investigators on FR, we’re learning more than we ever thought possible. Kudos to all here.
Thanks for FR and ping Lucy. Interesting to read an old thread.
