FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BANKRUPT MCCLATCHY MEDIA EMPIRE FACES LIBEL LITIGATION OVER FALSE CLAIMS IN OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE “REPORT”

(CHICAGO) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and bestselling Obama author Andy Martin announced Friday, July 31st that he has sent a libel notice and threat of a lawsuit to the bankrupt McClatchy media empire.

Martin wrote: “Obama: The Man Behind The Mask.”

“McClatchy published a ‘news’ report about me in which they claimed I had filed lawsuits that do not exist, and in which they claimed I made arguments that do not exist. It is journalistic malpractice of the most blatant kind. They sent me an e-mail a few minutes before the article went to press, and then claimed I “failed to respond.” These types of gutter tactics are what have destroyed the print media. That these lies are published to protect Barack Obama confirms that Obama and the mainstream media are going to crater at the same time,” Martin said. “If our demand is left unresolved, we expect to file suit next week and place the facts before a court of law, not McClatchy’s ‘court’ of lies.”

Martin’s libel letter follows:

NOTICE OF DEFAMATION/LIBEL AND DEMAND FOR RETRACTION

Dear Steve:

Last night your grossly unprofessional and misleading news report popped up on my computer. The story about so-called “birthers” is replete with false claims and misleading attributions. The article is false, defamatory and libelous as regards to me.

The article was obviously published with reckless disregard for the truth because it refers to nonexistent lawsuits and nonexistent claims in those imaginary lawsuits. It is hard to think of any journalistic behavior more “reckless” than outright lies.

Most importantly, you tried to use “ambush” journalism to avoid printing any responses from the people you misquote.

You wrote what prints out as a 6-page story, which obviously took a lot of time writing and reflects reporting with other sources such as professors, etc. with whom you spoke on the phone. But you never contacted me until just before you published your story. You then included the false claim “Martin didn’t respond to requests for comment.”

You sent me an e-mail at 3:58 P.M. Your story was published at 9:29 P.M. Thus, you sent me an e-mail at the end of the day, but no phone call of the type you used for your “pro-Obama” and “pro-conspiracy” sources, and claim that a last-minute e-mail was sufficient to reflect no response to a request for “comment.”

Is it any wonder mainstream journalists are thought of as worse than garbage? Or that your company is bankrupt? No reasonable person who reported a story for days and used phone calls to contact favorable sources would wait until the last minute to send an e-mail seeking “comment.” You deliberately tried to prevent comments so you could claim there was no response. I hope you didn’t learn that kind of gutter tactics in journalism school. Maybe you did. Why is why they are no longer called schools of “journalism.”

You have accused me of “seeing conspiracies.” I have never alleged any conspiracy involving the birth certificate. As you do admit, there is a document that Obama is refusing to release. That document contains information that is not on the “birth certificate” Obama has published.

You falsely claim that I charged that “Obama was a foreigner…” I have never made that claim. The only statement I made about Obama’s foreign origins, which was his father was a Kenyan national and U. K. citizen, was admitted to by Obama himself.

There is an important distinction between the two “birth” documents: the original 1961 birth certificate is an actual, typewritten piece of paper. The “certificate” Obama has produced is merely laser-printed output from a computer database. It is not a “copy” of anything; it is merely a printout of data in a database. Why will Obama not authorize release of the original piece of paper? What is Obama hiding? You don’t even ask the question, let alone press the Obamabots for an answer.

Last week CNN “reported” the original certificate had been destroyed. CNN was trying to discredit their own commentator, Lou Dobbs. Hawai’i officials then debunked CNN and said nothing had been destroyed. Funny that embarrassing incident was left out of your story. Why was CNN publishing blatant lies based on false claims of “research?”

Bill O’Reilly of Fox News said he had a “copy” of the original. More lies. Why?

How is seeking access to the original birth certificate a conspiracy claim on my part?

You claim “Martin’s filed several lawsuits accusing Obama of hiding a foreign birth. None succeeded.” In point of fact, I filed a single lawsuit in the Hawai’i courts, and that case is pending currently in both the trial court and Hawai’i Supreme Court. My single lawsuit never accused Obama of “hiding a foreign birth.” You deliberately printed lies to discredit me politically and professionally and to juice up your story.

You claim I have a “history” of inappropriate remarks, but point to a 25 year-old lawsuit where you admit the claims attributed to me were debunked. As a consumer advocate, I have filed and won many landmark public interest lawsuits over the past 40 years, see http://www.AndyMartin.com. Why pick out a single lawsuit and one-sided, isolated allegations in a 25 year-old lawsuit? Is that balanced reporting?

You print the lie because the lie is better than admitting the truth: you have no evidence to sustain your lies about me in a single lawsuit that took place 25 years ago. Don’t you have anything newer to smear me with than 25 years old? Or were you just fed at the trough of Obama’s desperate dirt diggers?

Likewise, I have never run for office in Connecticut. Another Thomma lie.

If you want to know why people increasingly don’t trust Obama, and why you may be out of a job one of these days, it is because of deliberate lies published by mainstream media intended to protect Obama from the truth about who he really is. The facts: he is hiding his 1961 birth certificate because he does not want the American people to know the truth about his real origins.

For you to falsely attribute nonexistent lawsuits to me, and to falsely attribute nonexistent allegations in those lawsuits to me, is both disgraceful and a reason why McClatchy newspapers are being tuned out by their readers. You were trying to discredit me precisely because I have restricted myself to the facts and to the search for truth. If only you had a shred of my integrity, McClatchy might not be staring a libel lawsuit in the face next week.

There is an interesting story as to why Obama is hiding a vital document of American history; he is indeed the “Man Behind the Mask” as I wrote in my book. But you did your best to conceal that story in a pile of lies. For shame.

You also try to suggest that “birthers” are somehow linked. I have never met any of the individuals you mention, and have spoken at length with only one, when I cautioned him not to file his lawsuit. Yet out of this you suggest a nonexistent “right-wing conspiracy.” The truth: there is no conspiracy. There is only missing evidence that Obama refuses to produce.

I will give you 24 hours to print both an apology, disclaimer and correction on page one of all of your chain newspapers. Or your bankrupt media firm can start paying the lawyers to defend your lies.

Sincerely yours,

Andy Martin

Andy Martin appeals for campaign contributions to defeat Mark Kirk.

July 29, 2009

Martin says Kirk is Barack Obama’s “favorite Republican.” If Kirk is Obama’s favorite, Martin says he is Obama’s “least favorite” GOPer. Martin and Kirk are candidates in the 2010 Republican U. S. Senate primary in Illinois.

Dear Friend:

HELP!

One week from today, on August 4th, we will launch my campaign for the U. S. Senate to retake America from the special interests and corrupt politics of Barack Obama.

My principal opponent in the primary is Mark Kirk. Kirk is a master at “fund raising.” In reality, congressional “fund raising” is a euphemism for influence peddling. Lobbyists and others in Washington recently gave Kirk $1 million in political “mad money” to do with as he pleased. No strings attached. It was not tied to any specific campaign for office like the senate, or to any office at all.

Kirk’s donors were just “banking” influence and Kirk was just banking cash. Now he wants to use his $1 million to defeat me in the Republican primary.

Mark Kirk is Obama’s favorite Republican. Why? Kirk wants to tax your energy with “cap and trade,” confiscate your guns and criminalize the Internet to protect Obama from criticism. Go to http://www.MarkKirk.us for links which document these claims. Rahm Emanuel and Kirk are best buds. Go figure.

Scared of Kirk? You should be.

When I am out asking voters to sign my petitions, where do you suppose Kirk will be? He will be at the Peninsula Hotel milking more money from contributors. $500 a ticket minimum.
http://www.weareillinois.org/connect/
eventDetail.aspx?eventID=2479

Now you know why Illinois politics is rotten and corrupt. Kirk promises “change.” Where have I heard that before?

Some professional politicians are convinced Kirk is a viable candidate. He is a sure loser in November 2010 because his campaign is aimed at raising money from “Country Club” Republicans. I want to rebuild the Republican Party as the party of Main Street, not Wall Street.

How many Reagan Democrats belonged to a Country Club? Or could afford a $500 a ticket fund raiser? Not many.

Still, we need to raise huge sums of money to stay competitive.
If we can’t garner enough financial support we will lose, Kirk will win, and Americans will be the losers when politics as usual triumphs again.

If you can afford to contribute, please do. Give up to the legal limits. (Federal law requires you provide an occupation and address if you give more than $200). If you can’t contribute, please ask those who can to do so. Small amounts, large amounts, anything and everything helps.

You can donate online, or you can mail us a check (see above) and save us an online fee.

Illinoisans and Americans need a strong, independent voice in the U. S. Senate. Today we have the “finest Congress money can buy.” Mark Kirk is bought and sold. Why send him back to Washington with a promotion?

It’s not enough to talk against Kirk, and it’s not enough to vote against Kirk in the primary. You need to financially support someone who can actually organize a campaign to beat Kirk, or Kirk wins.

Finally, there is only one man Barack Obama fears sitting in the U. S. Senate, in his old senate seat. Me.

Obama knows I can energize Republicans and Democrats to block his agenda. Last year I led an effort that almost defeated Obama. Liberals launched massive attacks on me. I fought back. I am tested and I have a track record of getting results.

Sadly, we didn’t defeat Obama. Now we are paying the price of our folly. But that’s history. We need to look to the future.

I am still keeping the pressure on Obama, still forcing him to defend his refusal to release his original 1961 birth certificate

What do Kirk’s and Obama’s “futures” mean for every American? Higher taxes, lower wages, more deficit spending, fewer opportunities. Grandchildren growing up in a third world country.

But Kirk and Obama have proven one thing: their supporters will give both of them huge sums of campaign cash to wage their campaigns.

Your future depends on whether Illinois elects a “fighter,” me, to the senate, or whether we nominate a “fund raiser,” Kirk, who will spend his time in the senate enriching himself and impoverishing America.

Please contribute to my campaign. Right away.

And please be generous. I can fight the battles, and I can do the job; but I need your financial help to succeed.

Sincerely,

Andy

Law professor/author Andy Martin makes a personal appeal to Barack Obama: release the secret files in Hawai’i State custody!

July 28, 2009

Martin says Monday’s admission by Hawai’i health officials that the state still maintains secret files on Obama makes asses out of Bill O’Reilly, CNN “researchers” and the CNN news managers that tried to intimidate Lou Dobbs. Hawai’i officials admitted (confessed?) on July 27th they still maintain secret files on Obama that have not been opened to the public. Martin has a pending lawsuit seeking public access to these historical archives in Hawai’i State custody. Martin says the latest disclosure by Hawai’i that the secret files still exist is going to explode the controversy and corrode support for Obama’s presidency. Since filing his lawsuit in 2008, Martin has become a candidate for U. S. Senator in Illinois in 2010.

Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin says “the Obama birth certificate circus has now spun out of media control”

The legal expert whose columns and lawsuits created the birth certificate frenzy says the opposition to disclosure will be undermined by the latest admission that Hawai’i still maintains secret files on Barack Obama

Martin says Obama’s secret files in Hawai’i are increasingly corroding public support for his presidency

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

ANDY MARTIN SAYS DR. CHIYOME FUKINO’S LATEST ADMISSION ADDS FUEL TO THE FIRE, AND MAKES BILL O’REILLY LOOK LIKE A JERK.

CNN NEWS MANAGEMENT IS ONCE AGAIN EMBARRASSED; LOU DOBBS IS A WINNER

ANDY PLANS MORE LEGAL ACTION IN THE HAWAI’I SUPREME COURT
TO “STOP THE CIRCUS”

MAINSTREAM MEDIA (CNN, MSNBC, NBC, NEW YORK TIMES) LOOK LIKE OBAMA LACKEYS FOR PRESENTING THE “OBAMA PARTY LINE” ON THE SECRET BIRTH FILES.

“WHEN DID THE NEW YORK TIMES EVER STOP TRYING TO DISCOVER THE CONTENTS OF SECRET FILES?” ASKS MARTIN. “WHEN THEY CONCERNED OBAMA’S BIRTH RECORDS.”

(PALM BEACH)(July 28, 2009) Just when you thought the anti-birth certificate wackos in the mainstream media (Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, Brian Williams, Chris Matthews, Bill O’Reilly and others) could not get any wackier, they were torpedoed Monday, July 27th by a new confirmation that Hawai’i state officials still maintain secret birth records on Barack Obama

“Last week, CNN threatened Lou Dobbs and denigrated his professionalism for being right about Obama’s missing birth records,” law professor and Obama author Andy Martin announced Tuesday morning. “Dobbs has said (we paraphrase) ‘I think Obama is a citizen, but why won’t he release the original documentation?’ CNN ‘news managers’ have said the issue is ‘dead.’ July 27th Hawai’i officials rendered those claims ‘dead’ when they confirmed the issue of the secret files is very much alive.

“I know how CNN can save some money,” says Martin. “They can fire the jerks in the ‘research’ department who said the Obama birth documents had been destroyed. Chiyome Fukino has just made assess out of CNN ‘research.’ She proved that Lou Dobbs is on the right track.

“Bill O’Reilly, who likes to think of himself as a restrained intellectual, proved that when it comes to Obama’s birth records, the opponents of release always end up making themselves look like asses. O’Reilly said Monday that Hawai’i officials sent his staff the birth certificate last year. That is a lie. Pure nonsense. Hawai’i has not distributed even the COLB without Obama’s permission. There is no evidence Obama gave permission to O’Reilly or Hawai’i to send O’Reilly a copy. To be polite about it, O’Reilly is full of crap. O’Reilly took a cheap shot at Lou Dobbs and ended up shooting himself in the foot.

“Then there is ‘Dr.’ Chiyome Fukino. She is another ‘ring’ in the Obama birth certificate three-ring circus. In October, 2008 Fukino tried to rig the election in Obama’s favor (despite the fact she works for a Republican governor) by releasing remarks confirming she had personally examined Obama’s original paperwork. How could she have done that if CNN says the records were destroyed six years earlier?

“At the time, I said Fukino had validated the claims in my lawsuit. I was correct. Fukino repeated her remarks Monday, July 27th.

“Monday’s ‘statement’ by Fukino will energize the controversy. Fukino again confirmed she had examined (caps for emphasis) ‘the ORIGINAL VITAL RECORDS MAINTAINED ON FILE by the Hawai’i State Department of Health…’ ‘Original…records’ are clearly something different than mere data stored in a DOH computer.

“Just when the mainstream media were trying to cover-up the controversy, Fukino poured new fuel on the fire and ensured the Obama ‘Birth Certificate Circus’ will not end until Hawai’i’s secret files are made public. Fukino’s latest remarks are going to send the ‘Free the birth certificate’ movement into the media mainstream.

“If Fukino has a secret ‘original file’ which she repeatedly references and examines, she makes asses out of CNN who claim the file was destroyed. Embarrassing for CNN? Yup. Validation for Lou Dobbs? Yup.

“I would like to claim the role of ringmaster in this birth certificate circus,” Martin says. “I did what any competent law professor would do in 2008. I cracked the whip in Honolulu and filed a lawsuit to obtain access to the secret files containing the historic information. Hawai’i officials are still keeping these American archives secret. Outrageous. Hawaii’s action is asinine.

“My complaint is on the Internet (October, 2008 archives). The Hawaii’ courts have tried to delay and obstruct my access to the ‘original vital records.’ How can you hide history? Obama’s documentation is now part of history. Plain and simple.

“My case is currently pending in both the Hawai’i Supreme Court and the Honolulu District Court. I do not believe my Petition for Certiorari in the Hawai’i Supreme Court is online at the Court, but I put my papers online on my blogs (see below). The title of the lawsuit is Martin v. Lingle.

“From the first day I began writing about Barack Obama’s secret life five years ago, Obama has obstructed access to the truth about himself. Obama’s sycophants in the media and government have tried to protect him from the truth and the facts of his life.

“But the truth won’t die, because the truth cannot die. The truth is in the documents.

“What secrets do the secret files contain? Americans have a right to know. Historians and authors have a right to know.

“The search for the truth is being obstructed by Barack Obama himself. He could put an end to the ‘Circus’ by authorizing Hawai’i to release the secret files. What is he hiding? My search for the facts and truth continues, and will continue. The American people have a right to see the ‘original vital records’ of their president.

“I will shortly announce new legal action. Fukino has confirmed that ‘the original vital records’ on file with the Hawai’i Department’ exist and she has access to them. Therefore, I have a meritorious legal claim. I will continue to press that claim.

“Those who claim, as Bill O’Reilly does falsely, that they have already received these documents are liars. Those who claim, as CNN does, that these documents have been destroyed, are also liars. Fukino’s latest disclosure that the secret files exist has made liars out of all of them.

“Luckily, one person, me, is seeking the truth in the proper forum (Hawai’i state courts) with a lawsuit against the proper officials (Hawai’i state officials), for the secret documents which they admitted again on July 27th they have on file. I will continue to press my claims.

Lou Dobbs, who does not have my level of legal expertise, but who has a practical understanding that ‘something is wrong’ with the way Obama’s ‘vital records’ are being manipulated and concealed, is also right. The boobs at CNN who denigrated and intimidated Dobbs also end up looking like asses.

“Dobbs and I look pretty good.

“Finally, I issue this sincere appeal to Barack Obama: Stop the Circus! Stop manipulating and concealing the truth about yourself. Public doubts are growing. As long as you maintain secret files in Hawai’i these files are going to corrode public support for your presidency.

“In the wake of Fukino’s July 27th remarks, public doubts are going to skyrocket. Authorize Hawai’i to release all of your secret files. With Fukino’s confirmation that these files exist, the controversy is not going to die and is not going to disappear unless and until Fukino’s secret files, all of them, not just some of them, are made public.

“You are abusing the American people by playing games with your birth records. Stop the Circus. Tell the truth! Open the files!” Martin said.

Professor Martin is preparing new legal action.

Earlier this year he became a candidate for U. S. Senator from Illinois in 2010. [Martin is currently visiting his mother, who lives in Florida, before the senate race formally opens on August 4th.]

Is self-promoter Henry Gates using Cambridge Police to promote another PBS taxpayer rip-off?

July 27, 2009

Andy Martin has increasing doubts about what “Harvard Henry” Gates knew, and when he knew it. Gates’ attorney is obviously trying to gin up a national propaganda campaign over a minor incident.

Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin asks “Was Henry Gates’ tantrum just another one of his profiteering charades?”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Andy asks whether Henry Gates manufactured his “confrontation” with Cambridge police to promote a new PBS program

(CHICAGO)(July 27, 2009) One of the things counter-intelligence teaches us is to ask the non-obvious questions. Sometimes even off-the-wall analysis of an event can provide more insight than obvious explanations for what happened. Sometime the unlikely is even true.

Regular readers also know that I am trained as a lawyer, although I do not practice law. Lawyers are trained “professional paranoids,” who often ask outlandish questions in order to focus in on and frame the reality of unreality. That’s what we do.

Here is what we know: Gates came home. Someone saw him forcing his way into his house and called the police. The officer who arrived had no history of racial antagonism. On the contrary, he was respected for dealing with minorities. Cambridge is a “liberal” college town where the local police are slow to anger and even slower to arrest.

Gates became angry, confrontational and vile without any police provocation, yelling about being a “black man in America” and accusing police of “racial profiling.”

Obvious answer: Gates “exploded” and started abusing the officer, whereupon he was arrested. This is the conventional wisdom.

But the conventional interpretation leaves us a little flat.

Gates has been a shrewd racial profiteer for decades. He has done well peddling his “scholarly” work on Black history. He has no history of explosive confrontations with whites and, taking him at his word, his life has been devoted to precisely the opposite, racial harmony. So why the big bang with the Cambridge cops?

Here is my alternative reality of what happened. Don’t tell anyone you heard it from the columnist left-wing media consider the undisputed “commander-in-chief of conspiracy theories.”

Gates has been planning a PBS documentary on racial profiling. In terms that journalists use, he wanted to “write himself into the story.” A policeman turned up on his doorstep and, like a tarantula, Gates pounced.

Gates was awfully quick to promote a PBS program based on his arrest:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/
content/article/2009/07/21/
AR2009072101771_2.html?sid=ST2009072301777

What is missing from the public record to date: (1) the so-called complaining witness has never been interviewed in depth by the media, although she was standing outside Gates’ house when the police arrived. Her identity is known. (2) Cambridge Police have “dismissed” the charges, but the 911 tapes have not yet been released. We don’t know what the witness said to the police dispatcher, and we don’t have any of the other police communications.

Sunday the New York Post wrote of Gates’ remarks:

“I look forward to studying the history of racial profiling in a new documentary for PBS.” The Post’s story was based on Gates’ statement to http://www.theroot.com, see: http://www.theroot.com/views/gates-
says-yes-beer-crowley

I began to wonder if Gates was not using Sergeant Crowley and the Cambridge Police to promote himself.

The accusation of “racial profiling” is facially absurd. The police did not profile Gates. They got a report of a burglary in progress and responded.

Not surprisingly, pampered Mr. Gates lives in public housing, tax exempt property owned and subsidized by Harvard University. He could have simply said to the investigating officer. “You know, Harvard owns this property. Give them a call to check me out.” He claims he was on the phone to Harvard for free maintenance when Sergeant Crowley arrived:
http://www.theroot.com/views/lawyers-
statement-arrest-henry-louis-gates-jr

Gates was calm enough to assess the “damage” to his door and to call the Harvard maintenance people before police appeared. There was no reason for him to fly into a rage.

Gates claims his small statute exempted him from normal police procedures:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/
content/article/2009/07/21/
AR2009072101771_2.html?sid=ST2009072301777

The idea that just because someone is physically small (“150 pounds”) they don’t have a gun, so police should not be concerned with his belligerence, is so absurd as to make Gates a laughingstock. What planet has he been living on for the past half century? Planet Harvard.

Interestingly, the original witness, who is a Harvard employee, has practically disappeared from public view. The 911 tapes? Missing. Cover-up? You be the judge.

As I began formulating these thoughts I did extensive Internet research. And I found that others were also having the same doubts and raising the same questions as I was:

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/warner-todd-huston/
2009/07/26/part-gates-gate-not-getting-much-
media-attention#comment-984752

Maybe the conventional wisdom is right in this case. Maybe not.

Gates lives a completely taxpayer-subsidized life, from Harvard’s “public housing” to Public Broadcasting. Is Gates using his unfortunate arrest and his own abusive behavior as a vehicle to profiteer on PBS at taxpayer expense? It sure looks that way.

Ripping off the Man. Good work I you can get it.

Was Barack Obama “crying in his beer?”

July 26, 2009

Andy Martin says Obama missed a moment when he could have become the “President of all the American people.”

Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin asks “Why are American taxpayer dollars subsidizing a racist twit like Henry Gates “Jr.?”

Martin says “Gates is a disgrace to Black Studies programs; his behavior raises questions as to why Harvard maintains Gates on its faculty”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

“BARACK SIX-PACK” OBAMA? WHO KNEW?

ANDY MARTIN SAYS OBAMA SUFFERED A SHATTERING DEFEAT IN “GATESGATE”

MARTIN SAYS PHOTOS OF OBAMA SHOWED HIM “CRYING IN HIS BEER”

(CHICAGO)(July 26, 2009) Before the Gates arrest in Cambridge, Massachusetts descends into the graveyard of media triviality, we should look more closely at the aftermath of “Gatesgate.”

Barack Obama is a member in good standing of the brie and Chablis wing of the Democratic party. In Iowa, Obama complained about the skyrocketing cost of Arugula at Whole Foods.
http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/
07/27/obamas-down-on-the-farm/

All of a sudden “Barack the Arugula” has become “Barry Six-pack” at the neighborhood bar? Who knew? What made him invite the two men involved in Gatesgate to the White House for beer? Gates is rumored to have the same haughty tastes in beverages as Barry Six-pack. Are they condescending to drink beer to make the policeman feel comfortable? Has the White House turned Obama into “Beer-swilling Barry?” I don’t know.

Something good came out of Gatesgate. Maybe PBS will defund this arrogant twit who has been exploiting Harvard and American taxpayers for years. PBS should shut off Gates’ money. Harvard should fire the racist spitfire.

Gates is defiant and unrepentant for his abominable behavior. Here is what he said:

“My entire academic career has been based on improving race relations, not exacerbating them. I am hopeful that my experience will lead to greater sensitivity to issues of racial profiling…If so, then this will be a blessing for our society.” http://www.boston.com/news/local/
breaking_news/2009/07/
obama_calls_cam.html

Is this really what Gates takes as the lesson from his disgusting racist diatribe against a police officer trying to do his job?

The only “blessing” from Gatesgate is that we know now what an angry man and explosive racist Gates really is. PBS should shut off his public funds. Why are taxpayers engaging in deficit spending to subsidize Gates?

Harvard should also fire the easily-riled racist. Gates says his “entire academic career” has been devoted to avoiding “exacerbating [race relations].” It must not be much of a “career.” The first time he confronts a white man enforcing the law, Gates explodes with racist epithets and personal attacks. Is this what Gates teaches his impressionable students in Black Studies? Is this the kind of a “scholar” he really is?

Obama said he hoped Gatesgate would be a “teachable moment.” http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/
2009/07/24/obama-expresses-his-regrets-on-gates-incident/?scp=8&sq=%22teachable%20moment%22&st=cse

He’s right. It is a teachable moment. Gatesgate teaches ordinary Americans, white and black, that Harvard and other universities harbor and pamper these unrepentant racists. At the slightest encounter with normal society they are ready to explode. Racism is their rallying cry.

If Gates were really an honest man, which he is not, and if he were really a scholar, which he is not, he would not be lying about his confrontation with the police. Gates undermines public concern for racial profiling. Racial profiling is a serious concern in our society. Gates’ behavior and misinformation cheapens public support for eradicating profiling. When Gates takes his own warped personality and his aggressive abuse of police officers and tries to cloak himself in the defense of “racial profiling,” he undermines public concern and misleads the public about the true basis for his arrest.

There was, however, “racial profiling” in Gatesgate. It is obvious that Gates automatically “profiles” white men in uniform as a threat to his outsized ego, even when they are trying to protect his own house! Crazy? Obviously. Gates is a racist jerk. He has no business on a college faculty.

Which raises another question for Barack Obama, the man who didn’t-hear-my racist-preacher-preach-for-twenty-years. Why is Obama calling unrepentant racist Gates a “friend.” Once again, we gain an insight into the true blue Obama. Sarah Palin was criticized for saying Obama was paling around with terrorists. Obama now admits he pals around with racists.

Which brings us to Obama himself. He said that Gatesgate should be a “teachable moment.” Well, it was. It taught us that rich Harvard professors who milk taxpayer provided PBS subsidies are nutty, abusive, abrasive and arrogant. That’s what Gates taught us.

Saturday morning the national papers had pictures of Obama with a hangdog look, as though his puppy had died. Obama was crying in his beer, which is maybe why he invited the men over for a “beer.”

When he entered the White House, Obama was no longer an obscure racist politician from the Daley Machine’s south side wards. He was at least nominally a president of all the people. Sadly, Wednesday and Friday Obama revealed he is not the president of all the people. He is the president of racists and phonies such as Henry Gates the Junior. Barack Obama is not my president.

My president would respect law enforcement.

My president would tell crackpot Gates that he should sit down and shut up, that he had embarrassed African-Americans enough and made a laughingstock of Harvard University.

My president would tell Gates that Cambridge police are notorious for not arresting people, white or black. [http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/
2009/07/25/all_right_
everybody_lets_cool_off/]

My president would have told Gates that he set race relations back, by stereotyping himself as an “angry African-American” that can explode without provocation.

My president would have told Gates that real racists will love Gates. He will be their hero, because he validates what racists think and say and do, that African-Americans are volatile and irrational. Gates’ hope for a “blessing” was delusional behavior.

My president would have told Gates he should take some time to quiet down, and avoid contact with the public. My president would not have invited unrepentant Gates to the White House for a “beer.” Inviting Gates validates his abusive and arrogant behavior.

My president would have honestly and openly apologized to the police officer he maligned, and not played word games with goofy Robert Gibbs as to whether Obama’s remarks constituted an “apology.” Either it was an apology, or it wasn’t. If it was an apology, it should have been stated in plain English, not in a lawyer’s weasel words. If it was not, Obama is as “guilty as Gates.”

My law school was not particularly receptive to civil rights advocates. One student said Martin Luther King “lived outside the law and died outside the law.” I paid a price for being a civil rights supporter. I was attacked by, among others, racists in the rural legal profession of downstate Illinois.

Thus I look with particular sadness at what we as a nation have wrought. Taxpayer subsidized, PBS producing, arrogant, racist yoyos such as “Harvard Henry” Gates.

Barack Obama did indeed have a “moment” when he could have “taught” Gates, and every American, a lesson about racial justice and simple reason. He missed it.

Barack Obama suffered a shattering defeat. Many Americans learned that Barack Obama is not “my president.”

Obama’s response to Henry Gates incident is affirmative action run amok, says Illinoisan

Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin calls
Barack Obama the “Affirmative Action President”

Martin says “mainstream media” elected Obama, and Americans are now stuck with a black militant who spews angry attacks on law enforcement

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

ANDY MARTIN SAYS BARACK OBAMA’S UNFOUNDED ATTACK ON A LOCAL POLICE OFFICER SHOWS “OBAMA’S TRUE COLORS”

MARTIN CALLS OBAMA THE ARROGANT PRODUCT OF AN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION CULTURE

HENRY GATES IS ANOTHER RACIAL PROFITEER WHO HAS MADE A COMFORTABLE CAREER EXPLOITING WHITE GUILT

IT IS TIME FOR “BARRY O” TO MAKE HIS COLLEGE RECORDS PUBLIC, MARTIN DEMANDS

(CHICAGO)(July 24, 2009) Barack Obama showed his true “colors” at Wednesday’s news conference when he came to the defense of race-bating Harvard professor Henry Gates. (Why is Gates, a 58 year-old man, still using the suffix “junior?” Who was the senior? Who cares?)

Obama’s attack on local law enforcement is nothing more than the race-baiting, affirmative action response of someone who is a creation of the liberal news media. Obama is using the White House as a base to attack American society and ventilate his own personal paranoia and grievances.

“Racial profiling” had nothing to do with the Gates incident. Nothing. Obama’s effort to link gates to “profiling” was disgraceful. Profiling is a serious problem in our society. But there was no profiling in the Gates case. Someone in Cambridge, Massachusetts called 911 and reported a felony in progress. Police went to check, and were confronted by a belligerent occupant of the premises who refused to document his lawful presence, Henry Gates.

The colors Obama showed Wednesday were the colors of black liberation, not the red, white and blue of American values.

Few people owe as much to an African-Americans as I do. My first college roommate was a black football player from Centralia, Illinois. We lived together in a room barely larger than my walk-in closet today. In 1963. Close quarters do not always make for close friends. In our case, it did.

Ironically, we did not really follow the civil rights revolution going on outside the University of Illinois. We were too busy living in our football environment. Although neither one of us ever became a great varsity player, I learned more about leadership and salesmanship from Art than almost anyone else in life.

I had another significant African-American experience in Champaign-Urbana, helping an electrician become licensed and providing work for him. He taught me that most African-Americans are not looking for a handout. They are looking for a fair and level playing field. I continue to believe in that approach.

I not only grew up in a home with a deep commitment to civil rights I lived the experience in college at a time when the relationship was still quite novel. My bonds to African-Americans are strong, and they are renewed every week. I am as committed today to racial equality and civil rights as I was as a maverick law student.

Does that mean I automatically support affirmative action, one of the more pernicious permutations of the later-day civil rights movement?

Commitment to civil rights and racial equality does not mandate that I tolerate the racial crybabies and profiteers created by affirmative action, such as Barack Obama and Henry Gates.

Obama is the classic example of entitlement run amok. His entire existence is a function of affirmative action. Is he a bright fellow? Absolutely. Is he as smart as he has claimed, or as wise as the news media have portrayed? Bull. Obama is president because the liberal news media decided we needed an African-American president. (Personally, I favored someone like Colin Powell.)

Fortunately, the media cannot confer greatness on an individual. There is no magical Wizard of Oz for persons shaped through media exposure. Martin Luther King did not become a great leader because of affirmative action or media sponsorship. He became a great leader because he was a great man. Barack Obama is not a great leader or a great man. He is the liberal news media’s affirmative action president.

Affirmative action does not promise a fair and level playing field. We rig the game to achieve unfair and unbalanced results. And we end up paying the price.

That is why I reject Barry Obama, the Affirmative Action President in the White House.

Affirmative action has a continuing impact on our society. Today we face the ultimate corrosion: we have elected a president based on his race, not his qualifications. The “system” failed in 2008.

Obama may do more damage to race relations in four years than all of the progress we have achieved in the past fifty.

Obama will always be the self—proclaimed, pseudo hipster in the Panama hat, see the Occidental College photos at http://superhumanoids.com/blog/2008/12/17/obama-the-college-years-lisa-jack/

who trades on his pigmentation to obtain unfair advantages over similarly situated white people.

Wednesday’s attacks on law enforcement were a classic example.

Individuals such as Obama and Gates are offended when they are treated just like ordinary citizens. Society has had them on a soft pillow for so long, they fly into a rage when they encounter ordinary citizens.

Consider for a moment what we appear to know:

Police received a bona fide report of two men trying to jimmy a lock, a possible burglary. Police arrived at the scene. Police asked the occupant for ID. Gates refused and started to spew racial epithets and personal attacks on the officer.

Obama’s solution? Blame the police.

Last year, many people probably knew they were electing an “affirmative action” president. But they went ahead and voted for Obama anyway. He had no experience, no leadership training, nothing. He spoke well. That was it. Voters knew they were taking a gamble. And so we elected a “speech” to the White House.

I went on Fox news’ Hannity’s America on October 5th (link below, Part Two) and said Obama was planning a radical overthrow of the government. (Please note the left-wing media have tried to falsely convey the impression I predicted a “violent” overthrow; I was not. I was predicting radical efforts to overthrow the settled order.)

What has Obama done since taking office? He has asserted control over the financial industry, while providing protection for the profits at Goldman Sachs. He has declared himself the “maximum leader” of the automobile industry. And he is trying to take control of 17% of the nation’s economy, supposedly to provide better and cheaper health care. If these are not radical solutions, what are they?

They are “Barry Dollars,” and “Barry Motors,” and “Barry Care,” all known for the man who was known as Barry Obama until he decided to adopt the affirmative action pose of a “militant” by using his original African/Arab name.

Because he has been saturated with affirmative action all of his life, Obama feels an overwhelming sense of entitlement to act as our ruler. The Lion King.

When I dared to suggest Barry Land would be a “radical” approach to governing a complex nation of 300 million people, Barry’s henchmen attached me with lies and smears (link below). Fortunately, I know how to fight back, and did.

But we are still stuck with Barry Obama, the kid from the weird family that has an “undisclosed” family history.

Obama won’t show us his original birth certificate. He won’t show us his college records, because he obviously got accepted through racially-biased supplications. And now he wants to rule the world as America’s affirmative action president.

We get what we deserve as a nation. In the words of Hillary Clinton, we “suspended our disbelief” last year, and we got the affirmative action leader.

I have long and personal experience with affirmative action. I saw how totally unqualified people were hired or promoted to satisfy racial quotas, and the public be damned.

We now have a society where professional race baiters such as Henry Gates can stand up and smear police officers for doing their job, protecting Gates’ own home.

Instead of behaving like a Harvard professor, which he has been for many years, Gates acted as a street thug, spewing forth racial epithets as a first line of defense. Yo. Gates.

If you promote poseurs such as Gates on the basis of racial quotas, you get the Gates of last week, believing that his “entitlement” at Harvard entitles him to be abusive to people who are beneath him.

Once African-Americans were the victims of racial injustice. Today African-Americans are just as often the perpetrators of racial harassment and abuses. Most blacks are killed by other blacks. White-on-black crime is increasingly rare.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was pilloried because of the occasional blunders of the NYPD. Giuliani did have an abrasive style, almost a Henry Gatesish approach to defending his NYPD officers. But Giuliani’s aggressive law enforcement saved thousands of African-Americans, at the tragic cost of a few lives. When you balance the thousands of African-Americans alive today because of Giuliani, with the few unfortunate police mistakes, African-Americans should be singing Giuliani’s praises. Instead they revile him. No good deed goes unpunished.

Now that we can no longer pretend otherwise, and must confront Barack Obama as the pumped up product of affirmative-action-in-the White House, where do we go from here?

First, instead of playing pretend politics for a pretend nation, Americans should start holding Obama to the same standards as a white man. No more passes for affirmative action.

Second, Americans should renew and continue our commitment to civil rights and racial equality. Our programs are working well even if they sometimes fail. We cannot allow the Barack Obamas and the Henry Gates’ to derail the civil rights successes of the past fifty years.

Third, we should strike down all racial preferences and special quotas. We should announce that from today on, blacks much meet the same standards as whites. Period.

In closing, let me offer a historical perspective.

In 1964, the Civil Rights Act would not have become law without an Illinois Republican, Senator Everett Dirksen. “Southern Democrats” were against civil rights. I observed these racists when I worked in the Senate.

It was Republican judges on the Fifth Circuit and in Alabama that broke down the racial barriers created under Jim Crow. The Democratic Party’s federal judges were unreconstructed racists.

It was Midwestern boys, from Illinois and Indiana and Iowa that gave their lives to free the slaves during the civil war. Southerners were supporters of that evil practice.

Today, sadly, the Republican Party has allowed itself to become racially and regionally polarized. We need to rebuild the great Republican coalition of the past, all races, all nationalities, and all economic groups. Welcome. We need to rebuild an America based on equal opportunity, not racial preferences.

What the Democrats offer is Henry Gates: arrogant, corrupt, abusive and ultimately self destructive. Welcome to Harvard.

What Republicans should offer is a new, truly national, party committed to equality of opportunity.

There is obviously some lingering racial impact from the era of segregation. We do not live in a perfect world. People are not perfect. But today’s younger generations had nothing to do with segregation or Jim Crow. Why penalize them? Where and when does it end?

The affirmative action president must, starting today, be held to a new and higher standard. The same standard as every one else in this nation. Let’s do it.

And, oh, one more thing Mr. Obama. How about making your college records at Occidental, Columbia and Harvard Law School public?

Would it be too much trouble to release your original, 1961 typewritten birth certificate?

Liberal media frenzy builds over Barack Obama’s missing birth certificate

July 24, 2009

Andy Martin’s relentless pursuit of Barack Obama’s original birth certificate bears fruit as even MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asks “Why won’t Obama produce the 1961 document?” Martin is a Republican candidate for U. S. Senator from Illinois and Executive Editor of ContrarianCommentary.com.

Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin challenges “Media Matters for America” to “put up or shut up”

Martin’s challenge to leftist mainstream media creates a new problem for Obama’s electronic sycophants

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

THE FRENZY TRIGGERED BY ANDY MARTIN’S CONTINUING LAWSUIT AND BLOG WRITING CONCERNING BARACK OBAMA’S MISSING BIRTH CERTIFICATE REACHED A NEW CRESCENDO THURSDAY AS LEFTIST MEDIA STORM TROOPERS BEGAN DESPERATE STEPS TO DEFEND OBAMA’S SINKING REPUTATION

ANDY MARTIN SAYS THAT LEFTIST MEDIA SHOULD PUT UP OR SHUT UP.

MARTIN ISSUED A CHALLENGE TO THE ANTI-SEMITIC “MEDIA MATTERS FOR AMERICA,” SAYING HE WILL DEBATE THE ORGANIZATION ANYWHERE, ANY TIME.

MARTIN SAYS MSNBC AND CHRIS MATTHEWS LIED TO MATTHEWS’ VIEWERS WHEN THEY FALSELY CLAIMED TO HAVE A COPY OF AN ORIGINAL OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE

(CHICAGO)(July 24, 2009) The mushrooming leftist media frenzy over Americans who are demanding access to Barack Obama’s original birth certificate reached a new decibel level Thursday when Chris Matthews rolled out a somewhat comatose G. Gordon Liddy to opine on the burgeoning birth certificate controversy.

Media Matters for America (MMFA), an organization funded by anti-Semite George Soros, whose personal history is one of the most despicable of World war II, reacted to Obama’s crumbling defenses with a rehash of old lies about Obama’s critics.

MMFA seeks to suggest that some kind of linkage exists among Obama’s challengers, when in fact no such linkage exists.

MMFA correctly attributed all of the original research and analysis about the missing Obama birth certificate to ContrarianCommentary.com’s Andy Martin. Martin’s book “Obama: The Man behind The Mask” dealt with the early stages of Obama’s cover-up. Martin’s blogs have continued to demand that Obama stop hiding his original birth certificate and college records.

In response to MMFA’s latest nonsense, ContrarianCommentary.com has issued a challenge to MMFA: Executive Editor Andy Martin will meet and debate MMFA anywhere, any time. Here is the full post which was transmitted to MMFA (and which MMFA may censor from their web site):

**********************
I never cease to be amazed how left-wing weenies at Media Matters (subsidized by that world-class anti-Semite George Soros, who looted Jews on their way to their death in World War II) love to distort my work.

Apparently the public believes me, not you. Apparently media are “discovering” that Obama has a problem: he won’t release his typewritten 1961 birth certificate and university records. Apparently I have a lawsuit pending in the Hawai’i Supreme Court to release the typewritten 1961 birth certificate.

So MMFA entertains itself with trying to smear me on the basis of 25 year-old and 35 year-old fabrications and lies that have been totally discredited, all as part of an Obamacentric strategy to draw attention from the defects in his résumé, not mine. It is amazing that an organization supposedly devoted to truth traffics in lies, bigger lies and grand lies.

As for the losers who attack me in anonymous comments on MMFA, I will not respond. Unlike them, I don’t have to hide behind a veil of anonymity. The truth and the facts are on my side.

Anyone reading my book, “Obama: The Man Behind The Mask,” or my recent blogposts in June and July, would be amazed at how accurately I predicted the current explosion of media interest in Obama’s missing documentation. Just read the blogs and then congratulate me for my accurate predictions. That’s why they call me the Internet Powerhouse.

In addition to hiding his original birth certificate, Obama is also hiding his college records.

We are going to be posting on the Internet shortly the full record of our April, 2009 conference on Obama’s missing birth certificate and college records. Stay tuned. You will have another excuse to pop and toot about me. A movie on Obama’s years in Hawai’i, “Obama: The Hawai’i Years,” is also in final editing.

I am happy to debate Media Matters or anyone else, anywhere, any time on the factual merits of my claims. Just set up a meeting and send me a ticket. Earlier today I was interviewed for the Jim Alger Internet radio show. I found him infinitely more rational and coherent than MMFA.

I have presented my allegations against Obama in a court of law. Your accusations against me would never stand the test of inquiry in any judicial forum.

MMFA can continue its tax-exempt (and therefore taxpayer-subsidized) lying about me. I will keep telling the truth about myself, Obama and MMFA. It looks like I’m winning.

The media left is in a panic, frenzy, meltdown. All because of the Internet Powerhouse. If I didn’t exist, you’d have to invent me.

Andy Martin

“We have thrown down the gauntlet to the leftist media,” Martin says, “Debate or depart. Obama is toast. Stop defending a pretender who won’t even disclose his college records, or his original typewritten 1961 birth certificate.

“In Viet-Nam, we used to call what the leftist media are doing ‘search and avoid.’ They try to avoid ContrarianCommentary.com because we are the best informed on the Obama birth certificate controversy. Why would anyone drag out Watergate figure Gordon Liddy to discuss a topic he admits he knows very little about? They even duped the poor guy with a bogus birth certificate, which appeared in fact to be just an ‘original’ copy of a COLB. Chris Matthews and MSNBC lied when they said they had in their possession a copy of Obama’s original birth certificate.

“The leftist media are afraid to debate me, so they roll out Gordon Liddy in a pathetic display of searching for ‘avoidance.’ It’s sort of sad. But the attempt to avoid me shows that they fear my evidence and my litigation.

“The Internet Powerhouse is undermining the Obama administration by triggering a firestorm that Obama won’t answer because he can’t answer. While the Washington media burns, Obama sits back and contemplates all of the lies in his life.

“I have repeatedly predicted that the birth certificate controversy would not die:

Mark Kirk becomes the laughingstock of Illinois Politics

July 23, 2009

Congressman Mark Kirk began his quest for the U. S. Senate by releasing a bogus list of campaign endorsers. What was he thinking? In Part One of the continuing saga of “Kirkie Boy,” U.S. Senate candidate [and Kirk opponent] Andy Martin strips the bark off professional, perennial phony Mark Kirk.

Mark Kirk becomes the laughingstock of Illinois Politics: Part One

Andy Martin says that Kirk’s latest exaggerations disqualify him as a candidate for the U. S. Senate

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

ANDY MARTIN SAYS MARK KIRK SHOULD STEP DOWN AS A CANDIDATE FOR U. S. SENATOR

KIRK’S USE OF IMAGINARY “ENDORSEMENTS” EMBARRASSES THE ENTIRE REPUBLICAN PARTY

PART ONE OF THE SAD AND CONTINUING SAGA OF “KIRKIE BOY”

WHY WON’T ILLINOISREVIEW.COM RELEASE KIRK’S BOGUS ENDORSEMENT LIST?

(CHICAGO)(July 23, 2009) Mark Kirk came out of the starting gate as a senate candidate by embarrassing the entire Illinois Republican party and by making a fool of himself.

Kirk released a bogus list of “endorsements.”

What could be more embarrassing to a candidate than releasing a list of “endorsers,” some of whom then deny making any endorsement?

Among the “embarrasses” was gubernatorial candidate Kirk Dillard, who promptly denied endorsing Mark Kirk for U. S. Senator.
http://www.championnews.net/article.php?sid=2000

Dillard, you will remember, had his own “endorsement malfunction” when he starred in TV commercials for Barack Obama. The last thing Dillard needed was to be fraudulently listed as a Kirk endorser. That would be a nice way for Dillard to gratuitously rile conservatives. Dillard promptly denied endorsing Kirkie Boy. [Who added Dillard’s name to the bogus list?]

Here the plot thickens.

The so-called “Crossroads of the Conservative Community” is running interference for Kirkie Boy,
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/
2009/07/confusion-over-kirk-endorsements.html

by claiming there is “confusion” about Kirk’s fraudulent activity. Where’s the “confusion?” Illinois Review admits that they contacted the endorsers and some of them denied endorsing Kirk. No confusion there. Kirkie Boy lied. Bad boy. (Full disclosure: Frank Eaton has a “hard on” for me; she removes my postings to IR and denies I exist; thattaboy Fran).

But in a classic cover-up that shows Republicans how some “conservatives” can be pathetic weenies, Illinois Review will not release the names of Kirk’s “non-endorsers.” How can anyone pretend to conservative journalistic objectivity and then refuse to release the names of people whose names have been used and abused by Kirk?

John Kass has a word for Kirk and the Illinois Review: the Republican Party’s latest chumbolones.

Kirk had months to plan his campaign announcement. Months. He botched the event. Nice planning, Mark. What was he thinking by releasing a fraudulent list of endorsers? Or is he going to claim the Illinois Republican Party is the fraudster? Who gave the IRP the bogus list of endorsers?

Kirk is a man who has been in office for almost a decade, and who has spent his whole adult life as a coat-holder for Washington fixers, in other words a classic “career politician.” He should have known better than to lie at his campaign announcement. It’s like lying to your wife. [I won’t go there, yet.]

Of course Chicago media are so incompetent most of them will be surprised to learn they were played for fools by Kirk. Many will learn it from this column. The links are up there boys and girls. Read them for yourselves.

Rick Pearson, the creepy reporter of the bankrupt Chicago Tribune, and Lynn Sweet, the Norma Desmond-like impresario of the equally bankrupt Sun-Times, failed to tell their readers about Kirk’s bogus endorsers. Maybe they were afraid Kirkie Boy would freeze them out. Sweet and Pearson are professional flacks, not reporters, as their latest cover-up confirms. And they wonder why no one reads their newspapers any more.

A closing note.

We had decided to “bank” the Kirk divorce story because the Kirk “marriage” is too rich a scandal, and too risqué a fraud on Illinois Republicans (or too deep a mine shaft?) for just one column. Somewhere out there, Jack Ryan is smiling.

But we have not been able to get back to writing about Kirk’s faux marriage because he keeps creating beautiful new material such as “Endorsementgate,” and “IllinoisReviewgate.”

Please rest assured we will be writing about the Kirk “marriage” in the near future. We have several columns banked already, with one to be added about the announcement appearance of Kirk’s own Eva Peron, Kimberly Vertoli. Come to think about it, Eva Peron had more integrity than Kimberly Vertoli. But then everything about Mark Kirk is phony, even his “wife.”

Tomorrow, “Mark Kirk Becomes the Laughingstock of Illinois Politics: Part Two” Stay tuned.

And Kirk wants to be a U.S. senator.

Kirkie Boy makes me look like a great statesman by comparison.

Andy Martin’s Obama birth certificate battle triggers NBC, CNN, MSNBC firestorms

July 22, 2009

Obama author and U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin (“Obama: The Man Behind The Mask”) was the first investigator to expose the serious questions about Barack Obama’s missing 1961 birth certificate. Now, so-called mainstream media such as NBC, MSNBC and CNN are creating a “firestorm” about public outrage at Obama’s unwillingness to document his birth. Martin has petitions pending in the Hawai’i Supreme Court and trial courts seeking access to the original 1961 Obama certificate. “We are going to make Obama show us his original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate,” Martin says. “The jokers in Hawai’i who are seeking to impose a veil of secrecy on America’s historic documents are doomed to failure.”

Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin is at the center of a growing media firestorm over Barack Obama’s birth certificate

Martin wrote the original stories questioning why Obama had concealed his birth certificate; Andy is still pursuing litigation to unlock Hawai’i archives

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

ANDY MARTIN CREATED THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE FIRESTORM

MARTIN PREDICTED OBAMA’S “SOCIALIST REVOLUTION” ON “HANNITY’S AMERICA;” NOW YOU KNOW WHY OBAMABOTS AND THE NEW YORK TIMES HATE ANDY

MSNBC HOSTS NOW SAY THE “BIRTHER CONSPIRACY” IS EXPLODING INTO THE “MAINSTREAM”

MARTIN CRITICIZES ATTEMPTS BY DAVID SHUSTER AND RACHEL MADDOW TO MISLEAD MSNBC VIEWERS

MARTIN SAYS “IF I GO TO THE SENATE, MY FIRST EFFORT WILL BE DIRECTED AT HOLDING HEARINGS ON BARACK OBAMA’S NEBULOUS ORIGINS”

JEROME CORSI RATIFIES MARTIN’S PRIOR VIEWS ON HANNITY’S AMERICA

IF ANDY MARTIN CAN CAUSE THIS MUCH DISRUPTION FOR LIBERALS AND MAINSTREAM MEDIA AS A BLOGGER, THINK WHAT HE WILL BE CAPABLE OF DOING IF HE TAKES HIS SEAT AS A U. S. SENATOR

(CHICAGO)(July 22, 2009) For the past five years, Barack Obama and I have been locked in a struggle over my efforts to discover his true identity. I want the facts. He wants to hide the truth about himself. It’s that simple.

I wrote a book, “Obama: The Man Behind The Mask,” that details my earlier efforts. (The book leaves off in June, 2008).

We still do not know who Barack Obama is. What we do know is that whoever he is, he lied to the American people. Today he is violating all of the “promises” he made to voters.

Over the past several months I have done columns at ContrarianCommentary.com detailing how the “birther” movement is on the brink of exploding into the mainstream. Now it’s happened.

I predicted, correctly as it turns out, that as Obama’s polls went down, questions about his birth certificate would go up. It’s all there in our earlier writing.

Tuesday night David Shuster, who is guest ghosting on MSNBC’s Countdown, derided the “birth certificate conspiracy.” Shuster had a guest, Chris Kofinis, suggest that anyone who is concerned about Obama’s origins, is a “wing nut.”

Sadly, the wing nuts were Shuster and Kofinis, who admitted and documented their own ignorance on national television.

Barack Obama has never released or authorized the release of his original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate. Why? What is he hiding? Good question.

I have a lawsuit pending, currently in both the Hawai’i Supreme Court and circuit court (Martin v. Lingle), seeking to pry loose Obama’s archival information. Hawai’i is resisting release. Go to my blogs (see below), pick one, and you can read the Hawai’i Supreme court documents.

Tuesday night Rachel Maddow also certified on MSNBC that the birth certificate had gone “mainstream.” We are winning; liberals are losing.

But Maddow also misled her viewers and demonstrated her ignorance of the birth certificate issue. Maddow used Dave Weigel, another leftist clown who pretends to be a journalist, to attack “birthers.”

Maddow, Shuster and the other lefties are starting to panic. “Birther power” is “surging.” Leftist power is already on the wane.

Maddow tried to make fun of CNN’s Lou Dobbs and called Dobbs a “birther.” While Dobbs does not fully understand the birth certificate controversy, and he has sought advice from people who confuse, not clarify, the matter, Dobbs is on the right track. Maddow is not.

Liberals love conspiracy theories. They suggest that anyone questioning Obama’s origins is involved in a “conspiracy.” That is simply not true. I did not start a conspiracy. I started a movement seeking to demand the facts about Obama’s origins and college years. For the past five years I have been searching for the truth and trying to find out the facts about Obama’s origins and early life. I am not a part of any conspiracy.

I am engaged in basic historical inquiry about who Obama is, where he was born, where he went to college. Don’t we know the detailed life history of every other president?

What are the undisputed facts? What are the facts that the liberal, pro-Obama mainstream media do not want you to know? The facts are relatively simple and straightforward.

1. The lawsuit I filed in October, 2008 in Honolulu pried loose the admission by the Hawai’i Department of Health that they had an original 1961 birth certificate.

2. Obama claims to have been born in Hawai’i. In 1961, Hawai’i used typewritten records. Similar certificates have been posted on the Internet so it is not difficult to determine what the blank form looked like in 1961 when Obama was born.

3. Hawai’i has recently computerized some of its archival records. The “birth certificate” that Obama posted on the Internet is not a copy of his original, typewritten 1961 document. Rather, he posted a computer generated facsimile of some information contained in a Hawai’i state computer data base. The “certificate” posted by Obama bears no connection to the original 1961 document.

4. What is missing from Obama’s laser-printed “certificate?” The computer-generated reproduction contains considerably less detail. Even in 2009 there has been a raging controversy over where Obama was born in Hawai’i. Varying and conflicting explanations have been given. Some media listed one hospital; others listed another. The issue has never been resolved. The lack of factual information about Obama is not a “conspiracy.” It is a gap in public knowledge about who Obama really is.

5. We do not know what claims Obama made to Occidental College, Columbia College and Harvard Law School to obtain “affirmative action” admission. Shades of Sonia Sotomayor. Obama refuses to provide access to his college records even though Sotomayor has disclosed hers.

Last year on “Hannity’s America” I exposed Obama’s links to radicals and offered the first connected, coherent time line. Take a look (click on Part Two):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
UKSq2oJ0W1c&feature=related

If you don’t believe I created an “anti-Obama” industry, look at Jerome Corsi’s latest effort:

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=104684

He wrote a book based on my original research as supplemented by Corsi. In fact, Corsi was criticized by Alan Colmes for citing me as a source. Corsi is still working off my research. In his latest story (above) Corsi is just reworking the material I originally presented on Hannity’s America.

Obama’s “socialist revolution?” I predicted that as well, on Hannity’s America. Go to the tape.

For my good efforts to tell the American people the truth about Obama, Fox News’ owner Rupert Murdoch had his munchkin slam me and say he regretted having me as a guest on Hannity’s program. Let no good deed go unpunished.

But, but, but, we continue to search for the truth about Obama, and we are constantly trying to find the facts. No conspiracies. Just facts. Sorry Rachel. You’ll have to pick on another boy.

My appearance on Hannity’s America has gone down in political history as the most controversial and most accurate exposé of Obama during the 2008 election. Take a look and judge for yourself (link above, click on Part Two). They can’t hide the truth. We laid it all out on October 5th, 2008 on the Fox News Channel.

Now you know why the New York Times and mainstream media despise me and do everything they can do disrupt my political activity and discredit my blogging. I am a threat to the liberal cathedra. The biggest threat the conservative movement has produced to date.

If I am elected to the U. S. Senate, I will make it a priority to convene Senate hearings seeking to subpoena Obama’s original college records and original birth records. We need to know who this man really is.

Coda:

Or, as “Columbo” would say, “Oh, one last question, Mr./Ms. Illinois Republican voter. If Andy Martin can cause this much agitation for liberals as a private journalist and Internet Powerhouse, can you imagine what he could do to the liberal machine in Washington if Andy was serving as U. S. Senator? Can any Republican seriously cast a vote for a weenie like Mark Kirk when they have a chance to elect a U. S. Senator who has been the scourge of Obama for the past five years, and will work to dismember Obama’s socialist schemes if Martin is elected to the Senate?”

Columbo would say, “Case closed. There is only one real Republican candidate running for the U. S. Senate from Illinois. One Republican who has shown he has the chops to take on Obama and his liberal ‘crew’ in Washington. Andy Martin. Do the right thing: ‘Fight Obama: Vote Andy.’”

U.S. Senate candidate calls “Obamacare” euthanasia

July 22, 2009

Illinois Republican Andy Martin today called Barack Obama’s proposed health care plan nothing more than government-sponsored euthanasia. “I can reduce the thousands of pages of proposed laws to a single word: euthanasia,” Martin charged. “What Barack Obama wants to do is slowly withdraw health care from our elderly population. He wants to target the most vulnerable in our society for extermination through bureaucratic empowerment. Obamacare is nothing more than slow-motion euthanasia in the guise of cost control and ‘best practices.’ Obama’s goal to gradually withdraw comprehensive medial care for senior citizens would kill my mother,” Martin charged. “And kill a lot of other mothers as well. Democrats should be ashamed to sponsor this abomination.”

Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin calls
Obamacare” by its real name “Euthanasia”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

ANDY MARTIN SAYS “OBAMACARE” CAN BE REDUCED TO ONE WORD: EUTHANASIA

MARTIN SAYS THE ONLY WAY TO CUT COSTS IS TO KILL OLDER CITIZENS, WHICH IS WHAT OBAMA WOULD DO WITH ALL OF HIS LABYRINTHINE PROCEDURES FOR LIMITING CARE

MARTIN TELLS OBAMA: DON’T KILL MY MOTHER WITH YOUR CRAZY SOCIALIST EXPERIMENT “OBAMACARE”

(CHICAGO)(July 22, 2009) All of you know politicians ask for contributions (we will too, shortly). But today I am making a contribution. A contribution to your good health. I am deciphering Obamacare so you don’t have to waste timer sitting in front of the tube tonight watching President Barry O try to lie to you and pretend he’s not really trying to kill your parents. (Now you can take a walk or exercise, in the time you have wasted listening to the Great One; how’s that for my contribution to your good health?)

Politicians and media people (Greta Van Susteren is a notable example) ask “Have you read he health law?” I can save you that wasted time as well. There is no need to read the 1,000 page proposal.

Obamacare can be reduced to one word: euthanasia.

Now Obama & Co. obviously don’t call Obamacare euthanasia. That would have his Roman Catholic supporters up in arms. It would have almost all of the American people up in arms.

Let me explain. Lawyers and doctors operate on the same wave length. They take simple matters and use complex jargon to obscure what they are doing. Obama is using this approach with Obamacare. That’s why the proposed Obamacare law is over 1,000 pages, and there are several proposals totaling thousands of pages.

Obama talks about “best methods” and other approaches to “improving” health care. Well this approach has already been tried in Britain. The British approach: let old people and sick people die. “The Queens Euthanasia. Cheerio.”

When I was a young Fighting Illini football player, I could take a hit and get back up and run another play. We “ran the stadium steps” for punishment. But we ran them. Today if someone tackled me I would probably be down. I would not be ready to run another play.

Part of being human is getting older (fortunately, like the late comedian Jack Benny, I have decided to be a perpetual 39).

So as we age, we require more health care. There is no way we can avoid that. With an aging population, more people will need more health carte.

Obama says he can deliver more “quality” at a “lower price.” Has anyone ever achieved that goal. Of course not. the Obamacare promise is pure bunkum.

So don’t waste your time listening to Obama, or reading the goofy bills circulating in Congress. Just remember one word: euthanasia.

My mother is also 39, although she has been that age for decades. (I started asking her age when I was about 5.)She is part of the “old old,” or over 85. She needs doctors’ care and medicines. Overall, these drugs and health care have performed a miracle. She enjoys good health for a person her age.

But by slowing constricting the care and quality of medicine available to older and old old people, Obama would be killing my mother on the installment plan. “Best” would no longer be the best for her, because Obama would say she is too old for the “best” care. She would get “cost effective” care.

In short, Obama wants to kill my mother. And he wants to kill your moms too.

Finally, he wants to kill all of us, again on the installment plan.

Quality care costs money. Democrats lie to the people (or at least that portion of the American people dumb enough to believe you can get something for nothing). Someone has to pay.

The current medical system is a mess. No one can deny that. We could make changes to save billions. But Obama doesn’t wasn’t to make changes to save money. He wants to take over the health care industry and provide socialized medicine to everyone. Obama wants to grab control of 17% of the nation’s economy and proclaim politicians “czars” of medicine.

I have lived in Britain and seen what socialized medicine is like. You won’t like it. Britain has some world class doctors. But you have to wait months to see them. Try telling a Chicagoan or New Yorker they have to wait months to see a doctor. I can usually see a physician in a day or two.

Today health care may be a problem, but is a local problem. Local people control hospitals; local doctors work there, our friends and neighbors. Sooner or later, local people can influence their local institutions.

Obama wants to federalize health care, so that federal bureaucrats at the end of toll-free lines would be in control. Local control of doctors and hospitals would be a memory.

As a U. S. Senator I will do everything we can to save money on health care. But I can promise that I will NOT support: selling bonds and running up trillion-dollar deficits to steal from peoples’ grandchildren.

If we do not stop believing in the “something for nothing” promises politicians love to make, we are going to be broke as a nation. Chinese takeout, anyone? The great American Ponzi scheme is going to collapse

Obamacare is yet another Ponzi scheme. “More for less?” Where do I sign up? Only a moron would believe you can get more for less simply by computerizing your records. Anyone tried to deal with a computerized credit card company or mortgage lender recently?

Bottom line: Obama care = euthanasia. Obama wants to kill us slowly, by making America a third world country when it comes to medical care. He wants to kill our parents first, and then kill us later, by denying treatment and coverage in the name of the “best and least expensive approach”

Barry Obama: LEAVE MY MOTHER ALONE! She is doing fine and she has good health care. She doesn’t need your garbage can plan to gradually cut off her medical care.

As for me, I can tell you what you really are, Barry Obama, you are a euthanasiast. You want to kill old people and sick people to save money on health care. Plain and simple. I don’t need 1,000 pages of legal crap to tell you what you are. You want to kill people to save money. Euthanasia.

Euthanasia is un-American and it is un-Christian.
