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 can understand why he might want to hide his Muslim faith, but nowadays, that is more than an embarassment, it is a national security issue. More than Jews will have to worry about this if he is hiding his Muslim background.
Is there a reason why the DNC didn't mention this at the convention as a part of their big diversity tent?
First I'd heard of it. Thanks.
Geeee, I wonder how they'll spin this?
Obama bin Laden will fit right in with the other creeps in the Washington DNC freak show.
This is amazing. I am willing to bet this story never gets as far as the swift boats story. Big News will crush this one as quickly as possible.
"Is there a reason why the DNC didn't mention this at the convention as a part of their big diversity tent?"
Probably because truth was not on the agenda that night.
The fictionalization of qualifications, accomplishments, and life histories is standard behavior for Rat liberals. No surprise here.
Very appropriate. Good find!
"I am willing to bet this story never gets as far as the swift boats story. Big News will crush this one as quickly as possible."
I'll take that bet, and raise you..... one Alan Keyes.:-)
Amazing if true. Once again, we learn of yet another Democrat who should never talk about himself without first uttering the words, "Once upon a time." But what makes me feel so warm and fuzzy is the prospect that the voters of Illinois have such a golden opportunity to send a Muslim to Congress as their SENATOR! And the possibility of past family ties to the Mau Maus is jaw dropping!
And here's Mr. Martin's website:
Thanks for posting this.
So basically what we have here is a barak obama alKerry sama? The continuous lines of bullshit being spewed by demoncraps is getting real hard to follow.
You got THAT right....a shrinking violet Mr. Keyes is NOT!!!!!! I am hoping that with Keyes oratory skills, this one WON'T die and the Swift Boat Vets for Truth will be able to ride a fast current right along with it into the mainstream media........geez, think about it, Swift Boat Vets, McGreevey and NOW THIS????????? Whoo-hee, I'm buckling in and enjoying the show this election cycle!!
"I was born a poor black child...."
Good find. Is this man even black?
Well, duh me! I completely forgot the fantasy diversity factor. How thilly!
This story won't do anything to the Illinois Senate Race..
BUT.. It will take care of any further ambitions he might have. They were touting this guy as a potential Presidential candidate in the future (2012, 2016, etc..)..
He will never pass muster outside of a liberal rats nest like Chicago.
Would never have occurred to me if you didn't link the two stories together in the first place. :-)
