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."

Oh my! First the Swift Boat Vets ad, then "Unfit for Duty" book and now this. The news just keeps getting better and better. I'm sure Ambassador Keyes has been informed of this eh? O'Reilly? Hannity?
I'm lovin' this.
WOW....if true.....this could be the start of something BIG!
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.
yup. I'm all for slamming the 'rats, but unsubtantiated claims can backfire.
I don't either, and we really don't need these kinds of accusations here:
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
Their research is not complete - but they're going to sling the charge anyway at his father in hopes that it sticks to the son.
Ah, the smell of napalm in the evening!
2004 - the year for smash-mouth politics!
Is this story getting much play in Obama's state?
He was hailed by the lib-media as such a rising star in the party. This could surely dim his bulb.
Geeeeez!.....I tried telling friends that Obama was a Muslim, they shot me down...I guess it may very well be a secret........Welcome to the party, Keyes!!
Go to www.andymartin.com.
He's a Republican running for Senate in FL. He has a *legal defense fund*.
This is too serious to believe w/o independent verification.
Any FL FReepers know this person?
Is Obama currently a Muslim? I'm just curious.
Well, I knew that he was Muslim, but I didn't know the rest. I was shocked at the religious undertone of his speech and the evangelist type style, that I felt was intentional deception.
Somebody's working fast.
"Obama's grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama was a prominent and wealthy farmer. His son, Obama's father, was a child of privilege, not privation."
Won't get reported by the mainstream press, they will continue to refer to him as a "rising star", and never say anything about Keyes.
I have read online that Obama has said his stepfather was a "non-practicing muslim." He says he father was "agnostic."
Obama claims that his name Barack is Swahili. I must say, it certainly sounds Islamic. I don't know anything about the Swahili language.
Everything in this article appears plausible, although I cannot say for certain.
I announced the same to a room full of family and friends while he was speaking at the convention. No one had to tell me. I recognized it from his name. I made the statement that he seemed to be concealing his heritage.
