When Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin wrote his first column on Barack Obama’s family history and birth certificate, Andy had no idea he was creating an “industry” that would pursue Obama’s records to the ends of the earth. Although Obama’s mouthpiece Robert Gibbs says the BC has been released (Gibbs lies) and Fox News’ Shepard Smith has insulted people who question Obama’s missing records, Andy’s Army continues to battle Obama & Company to find the facts and tell the truth about Obama’s hidden “roots.”
Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin on the firestorm he created about Barack Obama’s bogus “birth certificate”
“Factually Correct, Not
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
“What hath Andy wrought?”
Obama continues his obsessive self-destruction by playing endless games over his original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate
When Andy Martin “outed" Barack Obama’s family history in 2004, and raised questions about Obama’s birth certificate in 2007, he had no idea he was creating the “birther” industry
(NEW YORK)(June 24, 2009) Today brought me another basketful of e-mails about Barack Obama and his mysterious birth certificate.
Colonel Robert Pappas is badgering Hawai’i Governor Linda Lingle about Obama’s missing document. (I was doing that a year ago.) Attorney Orly Taitz is asking a federal court enter a default judgment against Obama for failing to produce vital records including his birth certificate. Been there, done that.
Shepard Smith of Fox News is being criticized for seeking to "cover-up” the birth certificate controversy. (He’s guilty as charged.) For insulting some of Fox News' loyal viewers Shep ended up with coverage in the New York Times. How could ya, Shep? And, oh, welcome to the “club.”
Obama’s own White House opened a public access site, and was swamped with birth certificate arguments.
On and on it goes.
When I first started exposing Barack Obama in 2004, and later wrote about his missing birth certificate in 2007, I had no idea I was creating an industrial-strength controversy that would linger long after January, 2009.
And I had no idea who my partner-in-crime would be: Barack Obama. Instead of being open and honest, and coming clean, Obama's refusal to open his files has spawned a cottage industry of suspicion and even paranoia.
As for myself, I have not profited from this explosion of entrepreneurial activity concerning his birth records. We do receive contributions to cover the costs of our operations (see below), nothing more. But others have made small fortunes collecting donations from angry partisans who are convinced Obama was born in Kenya, or elsewhere.
Why has Obama refused to “lock down” the controversy?
Because he suffers from a deep character flaw, and receives intense, almost sadistic, delight seeing people distressed by confusion about his personal identity. He suffers from the same affliction: who am I? Obama morphed from a confused young man into president of the United States. But the doubts still gnaw at him.
I had no idea Obama would use his attack dogs to smear me on national television (Fox News), or use his lapdogs at the New York Times to publish lies about me (I sued them; case pending).
Some of the mainstream media may not be impressed by my efforts, but Barack Obama & Co. have always taken me very seriously. As well they should have. My work and the birth certificate and religion questions I raised ultimately cost Obama millions of votes. That’s how we earned the title “Internet Powerhouse.”
In October, 2008 I went to Hawaii to do research on Obama’s family history. I was the first investigative analyst to arrive there. Where were all the others?
After arriving, I came to the revelation (?) that the only place to file a lawsuit over Obama’s missing birth records was Hawai’i. That's where the original paperwork was located. I filed. That night nearly 100,000 persons viewed one of my web sites. Not bad for a day’s work.
My pending Hawai’i lawsuit elicits several comments every day. What is the status? What is happening? When will it be heard?
Uniformly I advise people that the judicial process is slow, and just as slow in Hawai’i as anywhere else.
My case is currently pending in the Hawai’i Intermediate Court of Appeals. (You can check their online docket, Martin v. Lingle.)
In April, 2009, we hosted a conference on the missing birth and college records (see video below). The questions and doubts keep growing.
Obama’s birth certificate mystery has become a modern day version of Charles Dickens’ Jarndyce v. Jarndyce:
Jarndyce and Jarndyce drones on. This scarecrow of a suit has, in course of time, become so complicated that no man alive knows what it means. The parties to it understand it least, but it has been observed that no two Chancery lawyers can talk about it for five minutes without coming to a total disagreement as to all the premises. Innumerable children have been born into the cause; innumerable old people have died out of it. Scores of persons have deliriously found themselves made parties in Jarndyce and Jarndyce without knowing how or why; whole families have inherited legendary hatreds with the suit. The little plaintiff or defendant who was promised a new rocking-horse when Jarndyce and Jarndyce should be settled has grown up, possessed himself of a real horse, and trotted away into the other world. Fair wards of court have faded into mothers and grandmothers; a long procession of Chancellors has come in and gone out; the legion of bills in the suit have been transformed into mere bills of mortality; there are not three Jarndyces left upon the earth perhaps since old Tom Jarndyce in despair blew his brains out at a coffee-house in Chancery Lane; but Jarndyce and Jarndyce still drags its dreary length before the court, perennially hopeless.
What will tomorrow’s e-mail hold? Maybe Barack Obama will give up the chase and release his birth certificate. He should. He is the biggest casualty of his own shenanigans. He undermines his own legitimacy and clouds his own future as president.
But until Obama releases his records I will be on the job, and on the case, seeking access to basic historical records that Hawai’i officials and Barack Obama refuse to produce. For shame.
I just wish I knew why Obama is inflicting this punishment on himself. I do not bear him any ill will. I just wish he would, in Keith Olbermann’s locker-room lingo, “man up” and release his birth certificate and college records as well. Millions, probably tens of millions of Americans, would feel better about Barack Obama if he acted openly and honestly. To date, he hasn’t. In due course he will pay the price.
You can learn more at www.BoycottHawaii.com. My appellate brief is posted on my blogs (see below).
If you wish to financially support our research and litigation you are invited to do so (see below, www.CommitteeofOneMillion… and www.BoycottHawaii.com).
P.S. At the end of all this, I am not even remotely a “birther.” I am a doubter.
I honestly believe Obama was born in Hawai’i. And although I don’t have a DNA test, yet, all my research leads me to believe Barack Obama is actually the biological son of Frank Marshall Davis. A new Barack Obama mystery waiting to be born.
Watch for our “Obama; The Hawai’i years,” currently in production but delayed by lack of funding. A blockbuster movie coming with new information about Obama’s forbearers in the Aloha State. Who knows? Maybe we will be creating a new and improved Obama birth-and-family-inquiry industry.
Who is that masked man? Barack Obama. The Man Behind The Mask.
