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/ -- 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:

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

London:
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."

I come from Kenya, the same country as Obama's father. First of all I would like to correct the author. He claims that the word Barack comes from the word "Baraka". That's correct but he adds to say that it is Arab and not African (Assuming he meant Kenya because Africa is not a country). Swahili is the national Language in Kenya. It's a blend of Arab and Bantu languages. Baraka is a swahili word so he got it wrong this time. I have been speaking swahili all my life so I'm pretty sure of that.

Again the author terms the Mau Mau group as "murderous inner circle of rapists, murderers, and arsonists". He definitely heard this from the Brittish (if he's not one). History is told by he who writes it. The Mau Mau were fighting for their independence. In the early 40s the Brittish promised a group from the Kikuyu tribe in central Kenya freedom if they enrolled in the "Royal Army" and fight the Japanese in Burma and the Nazis in Egypt and Lybia. Due to prior mistreatment the Kenyans agreed and off they matched to World War 2. After the war, they realised that the "Royal Army" deal was a hoax and the Brittish were not leaving Kenya any time soon. So they revolted just like the Patriots in Boston in the early 1770s. The Brittish declared a state of emergency and threw most (if not all) people from the Kikuyu tribe to labor camps. This included both of my parents. YOu wonder how a country can do this just after seeing the horrors of the Nazis in the early 40s. They (Mau Mau) fought a revolutionary war and I strongly belive that they deserve a better description that "murderous inner circle of rapists, murderers, and arsonists". They pretty much lost the war but forced the Brittish out due to the extremely high costs on the Brittish side of fighting the guerilla war with the Kenyan Mau Mau that quicly offset the benefits of keeping the colony. SO I'd say the Mau Mau won the financial war despite losing on the battle front.

Now Obama's father was not a kikuyu. He was a Luo and despite the fact that his tribe was also in the fore front of liberation of the Kenyan people, I can bet my life that there were no Luo poeple in the Mau Mau movement. The Luos were more involved in the political front of trying to negotiate more freedom for the Africans. That is not "murderous inner circle of rapists, murderers, and arsonists". His father went back to Kenya because that was his home and he felt that there were going to be opportunities back home where there was not going to be an official segregation policy by the goverment, unlike the US in the 50 and 60s. He must have been frustrated with life in the US as he was black. Remember his wife (Obama's mother) was fom Kansas and black people neer really felt at home so he must have had major issues dealing with the in-laws. So the natural thing to do is go back home where he will feel true freedom than fight racism here.


The author claims that Obama's family is taunted with rape and murder? Does he have evidence of this? Documented arrest warrants or legal proceedings against such claims would be welcome.

He continues to say that his research is not yet complete. In my opinion, this is not research as there are no background facts to accompany it.


I agree with the author that Hussein is an Arabic word as I have neer heard of it in the Swahili world. I also agree that Kenyatta's goverment was corrupt, but point to me a perfect goverment. Kenyatta was not murderous, he frictioned with the Mau Mau because they wanted total war with the Brittish. Kenyatta knew that we couldn't fight them off but they're bravery won us our independence. Kenyatta was sent to prison right after the declaration of a state of emergency on 20th October 1952. The next nine years say most of the battles for independence. He was surely not able to command an army from a Brittish prison which was in the middle of no where - completely inaccessible.

I'm not very sure whether Obama is a Muslim but if he is, I agree with the author that he should just come out with it. THe problem with politics is the kind of information that floats around. If the author has a chance of misleading the American people into thinkingof his background the way he has, we may lose a perfect candidate due to false information. Let's try our best to get the facts straight before we release such image damaging information to the public, unless damaging Obama's image is one's first priority, at any cost.

Obama is a "perfect candidate"?

Maybe for Marxists and abortionists.

Some interesting clarifications and opinions there, newbie.

I'm of the opinion that Senator Obama is not Presidential material because of his politics...I don't give a d@^n about his race, religion, ancestry, etc.

============================================

I'm neither a newbie nor a Kenyan but this sort of character assassination with zero basis in known fact makes me disregard anything else the writer has to say. I believe that it is the writer's shame at his own unnatural sexual urges that makes him write this about Obama.

True, false or in between, it doesn't matter as Obama will never be president of the US.

Well, I better not say never because he is a young man, but he won't be on top of the ticket on this cycle.

Right now the media are treating him like a rock star, but a misstep or two and ... who knows? Things can change pretty fast in politics.

Welcome to FR, Jimbo.

I knew a Luo girl once (last name Warambo) who was scandalized when she found out that I also knew a Kikuyu girl (Mbuthia). This was in NYC in the seventies. She got over it.

You got this SO right! As I said before, this form of belief is Unitarian Universalist and NOT Christian. This line in particular makes my head spin - "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."

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."

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.

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.

Interesting how “Error” “This Article is temporarily offline” is the default response to links to and within (i.e. from page to page) the article—any page, but it comes up with two or three clicks of the refresh button on my browser. Is this a result of a hack somewhere trying to steer people away from this particular article, or is this happening all over FR?

In a way it feels good to see others are having some problems. I was beginning to think I was the only one.

Since FreeRepublic came back up after its last crash January 5th, I have been having problems.

I can't get my FreepMail, nor my Postings, nor my Preferences. Also some threads are broken up. Like words break and go to another line or just straight lines on a page.

I sure hope this gets fixed soon.
