Andy Martin asks his readers for help figuring this one out
Where was Barack Obama born, and where did his mother leave him?
“Factually Correct, Not
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Internet powerhouse Andy Martin says the more you study Barack Obama, the more confused and concealed his life appears.
Martin asks his readers to help him connect the dots between Obama's birth and his mother's college attendance, both in 1961
Is there a secret Obama, and an "Obama Code," author Andy Martin asks
(NEW YORK)(October 31, 2008) I have been writing and researching Barack Obama for over four years. In that time, he has become more opaque, more mysterious, more contradictory and more confusing. Almost every day new radical associations or questions arise or are expanded.
And every day hundreds of "Obama" e-mails fly across my desk. Some of them are complete nonsense and are immediately deleted. Others appear plausible but melt under the sunlight of deeper inquiry. Some thoughts in these communications make sense. And some just leave me more confused. Some merit further investigation, and some of these have led to information breakthroughs in deciphering "The Obama Code."
Today I am going to ask you to help me make sense of something I don’t have time to research extensively in the waning days of the campaign.
How do we connect the dots between Barack Obama's alleged birth in Hawai'i and his mother's matriculation at the University of Washington a few weeks later?
This inquiry, as many do, began with an e-mail from someone making a suggestion: Obama's mother could not have given birth in Hawai'i because she was a college student in Washington at virtually the same time. In fact, the dates do not completely conflict. But they do not connect or make sense either.
Obama was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961. A month later his mother was apparently a college student in Seattle, Washington.
I checked out the name on the e-mail, and contacted the University of Washington myself. Here is the university's response:

So how do we connect these facts? Did she give birth in Honolulu and then leave her son and head for Seattle? Did she really give birth in Washington? It seems strange that Anne Dunham would give birth and abandon her son four weeks later to attend college. But maybe that's what happened. She appears to have been a very unstable person.
It is these kinds of doubts and gaps in the factual history of Obama that fuel the endless speculation about his origins.
I am more determined than ever to ask the Honolulu court on November 18th to release the typewritten hard copy of Obama's "original" Certificate of Live Birth. And I am more suspicious as well. (I have my own theories, but I'll hold them for the moment.)
I have seen, of course, theories about Obama's birth ranging from birth in Mombassa, Kenya, to Hawai'i, to Canada, to Washington State. But no one seems to have asked the obvious question: What happened to the boy when Anne matriculated in college? Who cared for him?
Have I missed something, overlooked something, fumbled some fact or piece of critical information? Frankly, the birth in Hawai'i in August and school attendance in Seattle four weeks later do not compute for me. I am left wondering what the facts are.
What is the truth? Did she have the baby and then abandon him four weeks later to attend college. Did grandma hire a nurse? What happened? Is the above e-mail a hoax?
I hate to add to the suspicion, or fuel the paranoia, but I invite all of my readers and anyone else who can furnish verifiable, factual information to join in creating a timeline connecting Barack Obama's birth and his mother's registration at college four weeks later. Perhaps there is a simple and straightforward answer. (We are swamped, on the eve of the election, and can't devote our limited resources to the inquiry.) Who cared for the baby? Where? What records or stories do we have to verify these claims?
If I am confused, and I am a recognized expert on Obama, is it any wonder the general public and ordinary voters are even more confused by this man, who could hold ultimate power in our nation for the next four years?
Barack Obama has not adequately answered these questions about himself. Given that he had a very unstable family life, there is a justifiable concern about his earliest nurturing and overwhelming interest in who provided it. Where was mom?
You tell me.
Readers of Obama: The Man Behind The Mask, say the book is still the only gold standard and practical handbook on Barack Obama's unfitness for the presidency. Buy it.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I recently decided to oppose Barack Obama's election and became Executive Director of The Stop Obama Coalition, http://StopObamaCoalition.com. By default, I became the national leader of the anti-Obama movement. I am not acting as either a Democrat or Republican. I have had no contact whatsoever with the McCain Campaign. I am not a member of any political organization. The views expressed are entirely independent. I am acting as an American citizen who sincerely believes Obama is not the man we need in the Oval Office. We are going to run a very dynamic and aggressive campaign against Obama.

URGENT APPEAL: The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama is raising money to fight Barack Obama. http://CommitteeofOneMilliontoDefeatBarackObama.com. Please give generously up to the maximum of $100. Our ability to fight and defeat Barack Obama is directly dependent on the generosity of every American."
The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama limits itself to $100 maximum contributions; there are no bundlers, fat cats or illegal contributions. Obama is opposed to everything America stands for," says Executive Director Andy Martin. "But while Obama has raised more than a third of a BILLION dollars, his opponents have raised virtually nothing. We can't just sit back and expect John McCain to do the job all alone. Americans can either contribute now, or pay later. If we do not succeed, Obama will."
