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."

There are so many lies muddying the water these days, the electorate just seems to dismiss truth. They are only operating on emotional response. Remember, more than 1/3 of Americans believe terror threats are fake.
What's this?!?! A democRAT LIED?!?!? Why, I can't believe it!!
HE IS SUCH A DEMOCRAT!
(Democrat/liar, the words are interchangable)
Nice smear job.
Just as some folks have trouble with the concept of truth, others have difficulty with the concept of a lie.
For example, just because his grandfather was a "wealthy" farmer does not mean his father did not grow up "herding goats." He may not have HAD to herd goats to keep from starving, but I don't think Obama made that kind of statement - implications notwithstanding. Stating a fact in a way that gives others an incorrect impression is not a lie. It is not entirely honest, but it is not a lie.
BTW - give me back my loc-nar.
if true, it will change lots of minds
Man you can't make this kind of stuff up.
Reckon he spent Xmas in Cambodia in 68? If not, why not?
This is trash.
The fellow has always been open about his family's background. See for instance the Chicago Sun Times:
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!!!
BOSTON: WE HAVE A PROBLEM
Not only is Andy Martin a gadby, he is a certifiable nutjob.
I would not believe a jot that Andy Martin writes.
He is missing some brain cells.
Seriously, I remember this clown from my Florida days.
Having said all this, I hope Obama is a fraud and is exposed. The problem is that Martin is really nuts!
What is it with the dems?
They can't seem to help themselves!
Lie, lie, lie, lie.
But with a name like barack obama.........even I knew there was something amiss..............
Yeah, this guy seems really concerned with the Jewish community. From one of his press releases:
"Israel is trying to embroil the United States in a 'holy war' in the Middle East," Martin will charge, "and the Bush Administration is flaccidly going along. My own local paper, the Palm Beach Post, got it right when it stated Bush's policy was 'diplomatically impotent.'
"In 2000, President Bush promised to restore honor and dignity to the White House. On a personal level he has done that. But in the Middle East, he is dishonoring America. Receiving the Israeli murderers at the White House, while the blood was still warm in Gaza, was outrageous...
"Just as Bill Clinton confronted Sister Souljah over Black extremism in 1992, George Bush must withdraw our ambassador from Israel, suspend all military and economic aid, and tell Israelis to get out of the West Bank and retreat to the 1967 Green Line, immediately.
"The irony of the situation is that Bush thinks his policy will buy Jewish votes. On the contrary, the Israelis are creating a conflagration in the Middle East that puts America on the cusp of chaos. No one voted in 2000 to endorse terrorism or territorial conquest by Israel. By allowing Israel to rampage-as I previously predicted that nation would during 2004-Bush is engineering his own political suicide in November.
This whole thing is just silly.
Swahili, IIRC, is a language largely based on Arabic, so the name Barack is probably Muslim, and a popular name in Kenya since a large portion of Kenya is Muslim.
Given his support for "live birth abortion" (the killing of breathing babies accidentally born in abortions), that comment isn't too off the mark.
Interesting. He doesn't actually say there that he is a Christian.
