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."

Thought this deserved its own page
Man o Man..these democrats just can't help but keep the lies coming.....
Definitely deserves its own page. Thanks for posting this.
Wouldn't it make more sense to have the press conference in IL so the local press can get it, with link-ups in NY and overseas?
No wonder he's running away from debating Keyes.
Is there validity to these claims? if so....... WOW!
Yep, this should give it time to die down by November 3.
It's a long list of liars he must follow.....Kennedy, Condit, Clinton, Clinton, Rostenkowski, Jackson, Kerry, Trafficant.....
Read this Yahoo article about Obama! Holy crap.
He fits right in dosen't he ?
I would like more proof than just the words of some reporter... that being said, this stuff sure wouldn't surprise me...
You certainly hit the nail right on the head!
Welcome to the Senate Mr. Keyes :-)
And every liberal who even thinks of running for office needs to see what we are doing to Kerry, Obama (Osama), et al and think twice. We will let them get away with nothing. This is shaping up to be an incredible campaign season.
Keep in mind, this is not an article. It is a Press Release.
How do we check the veracity of these sorts of allegations?
Strangely enough, a few days ago, my husband told me Barack was a Muslim. My guess is he heard this on a talk radio show. He's at work and I will ask him tonight where he heard it. However, it may not be all tht big a secret.
The Mau-Mau stuff is frightening. I am old enough to remember when that happened.
HE'S A DEMOCRAT!!!ENOUGH SAID!!! HIS HISTORY MUST BE SEARED IN HIS MEMORY.
For instance, he said his father was a goat herder, this guy says his father was a farmer.
Maybe he was a farmer who also herded his goats.
I really don't get the breathless tone of this tepid expose.
I would love to see that debate! Keyes will crucify him.
Oh my! This is amazing. Can't wait to see what IL Freepers have to say about this.
Does anyone know how to contact Drudge or Keyes?
Thank you for this.
What happened at the press conferences this morning?
What happened at the press conferences this morning?
Sounds a bit thin, but interesting.
Obama...(If I could post pictures this would be a photo of John Clese as "Mr. Hilter".)
Hey! Haven't you heard? The Demon craps believe in the "Rule of Lies". How better to steal and wield power?
HE SAID THERE IS ONLY ONE AMERICA---THERE'S TWO--REALITY, AND THE ONE HE REMEMBERS
What's your point? That press releases are unreliable? Considering the charges are libelous if they are false and that the columnist has asked the publisher to stop publishing the book, I think this has merit.
You think so? Come now, lib/dems don't really care if their candidate is honest. And independents can't decide if honesty is an admirable trait in a candidate.
He's toast if the American public discovers he's Muslim and named Hussein.
hmmmm, more then one source would be nice. Hope others dig in and have a look.
Lying birds of a feather! Kerry and Osama (whoops, I meant the other Muslim, Obana)
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!!
