Re: Your efforts to block Republican candidates



Dear Mike:



I am writing you about the scandal you are creating by trying to manipulate Illinois election laws to [1] frustrate Republican candidates and to [2] create a local “cabal” with another Democratic Party representative from McHenry County.



Republicans have been stooges for Democrats going back well into the last century. The “West Side Block” was a group of nominal Republicans who worked in conjunction with Democrats in the Illinois House. More recently some current state representatives are also identified as stooges of the Democratic Party. But, historically, the suburbs and suburban leaders have rejected your Chicago-style bipartisan cronyism and corruption.



I have never met Tonya Franklin, who wants to run against Representative Jack Franks for state representative, and the only time I met Sharon Meroni was in court—when I sued her. So I am no front man for either Franklin or Meroni. Then what is my agenda?



I am a constitutional conservative. Ever since I went to the Illinois General Assembly as an intern in 1965 I have fought against corruption, cronyism and perversion of our Constitution.



Instead of encouraging Republicans to run, you are trying to run them down. Is that your idea of what makes for an effective county chairman? You and Franks could be subject to potential federal criminal and civil liability for conspiring to prevent candidates from running for office, see e.g. 18 U.S.C. §§ 241, 245 (a), 42 U.S.C. § 1983.



I don’t know if Tonya Franklin is a good candidate or a bad candidate. I don’t know if she can run an effective campaign or not. Let the voters decide! She at least is willing to try to defeat your crony, Representative Jack Franks, and that is more than you are willing to do.



You have also tried to sabotage direct election of Illinois State Central Committee members. Your actions in trying to personally control local appointments to the state central committee, and to deprive McHenry voters of their constitutional right to vote for state committee representation, is apparently part of your ongoing and extensive campaign to dilute and defeat Republicans other than yourself, and to use party office and public office as a personal fiefdom instead of as a public trust.



I ask you to see that Ms. Franklin is appointed the Republican candidate to oppose Representative Franks without any further harassment, corruption or delay. Your tactics are becoming another embarrassment to the Illinois Republican Party. The party is the people; the party is not a handful of corrupt insiders led by State Representative Tom Cross and his followers. Cross is selfishly trying to “lock the doors” to new Republicans and trying to prevent Republicans from once again becoming a majority party and taking control of state government, to avoid diluting his own petty personal political power.



Given your record and Cross’s record of defeating democracy and working to deny ordinary Republicans a voice and vote in their own party and state central committee, all of you insiders should either stand up and fight for Republicans, or step down and stop helping the Democrats destroy Illinois government.



Please feel free to call if you have any questions. Otherwise, I assume you will comply with Illinois state law, appoint the statutorily-mandated district committee, and see that Ms. Franklin is named as the party’s candidate for state representative without further delay.



Sincerely yours,



ANDY

Andy Martin explains why Barack Obama’s prior drug abuse still matters

Internet Powerhouse and Conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement, who then distanced himself from part of his creation, and who still controls the Internet’s anti-Obama agenda with Andy’s Hawai’i and Chicago-based research into Obama’s past, explains why Obama’s prior drug abuse is still relevant in the 2012 election cycle.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:



Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin says Barack Obama’s history of drug abuse is “defining deviancy down” in the White House



Andy says the national media have a double standard, allowing drug abuse by Democrats and looking to expose Republicans for similar behavior



Andy asks why Obama’s “Choom Gang” story is being marginalized; the “Choom Gang” report deserves greater public attention, not cursory reporting on a holiday weekend



Andy says liberal media “dumped” Obama’s drug abuse story on the American people on a weekend when no one is really watching



Andy suggests the Washington Post has confirmed that “high school matters”



(NEW YORK)(May 29, 2012) Internet Powerhouse and Conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement, who then distanced himself from the more extreme elements of his creation, and who still controls the Internet’s anti-Obama agenda with Andy’s Hawai’i and Chicago-based research into Obama’s past, explains why Andy believes President Barack Obama’s drug abuse is relevant today:



When did the story of Barack Obama’s drug addiction reach the media? On Memorial Day weekend when most of us are focused on remembering our fallen heroes and celebrating with our families. Obama’s “Choom Gang” document dump was timed to reach Americans when they are least focused on politics and the media. Well, I do not believe we should overlook Obama’s history of drug abuse. We should not allow the media to manipulate us into reelecting a man with a history of drug abuse in his teen and college years. The American people have a right to ask Barack Obama the tough questions that were not asked in 2008.



Does “high school matter?” The Washington Post suggests that high school is very important. The Post created a front page media feeding frenzy over an incident involving Governor Mitt Romney’s high school years. Certainly the Post believes long-ago experiences in high school can still be front-page news when a Republican runs for president.



So where does that leave us with Barack Obama’s high school drug abuse and college drug abuse? Media silence. Consider:



First, since Obama was no doubt abusing drugs into his 20’s, Obama’s drug abuse is a lot closer to the present time than Mitt Romney’s high school hijinks. Obama was a drug user well into adulthood.



Second, while I disagree with Governor Sarah Palin on many issues, I completely agree with her that Obama was never properly vetted by the media in 2008. So while “Obama” is running for “reelection” in 2012, he is still an unknown to most Americans. I wrote a book about “Obama: the Man Behind The Mask,” and laid the foundation for future Obama writing and research. But my book was not read by tens of millions of Americans. Obama is still “the man behind the [media] mask” in 2012.



Third, the way Obama has been treated by the media is a classic example of “defining deviancy down.” The late Senator Daniel Moynihan coined the term “defining deviancy down” (link below) to explain how society can undermine its own standards and security when it tolerates seemingly innocuous anti-social behavior. Moynihan showed how tolerating minor acts of “deviant” behavior can lead to major social problems as tolerance for deviant behavior increases and spreads to more serious societal matters.



Fourth, other columnists have commented on the fact that this is the first time in a long time we have two presidential candidates with no military experience. In other words, we are electing a “commander-in-chief” who has never commanded and never been a chief in any military unit. While battlefield experience should never be a sine qua non for presidential leadership, some exposure to the concept of military policy is always helpful when the person we choose must “lead” our fighting forces and make military policy.



Since we can no longer look at their military leadership as exemplars of their character, looking at other factors becomes essential when we evaluate the leadership qualities of presidential candidates.



Fifth, we learned during the Clinton years, when President Bill Clinton had an insatiable sexual appetite and an inability to control his impulses right into the Oval Office, that a generation of children (now young graduates in their 20’s) were exposed to the complexities of adult sexuality while still in grade school. Clinton defined deviancy down in a way that reached into every home. Clinton also came up with the notorious expression “I didn’t inhale” to explain away his own marijuana experimentation.



Sixth, while drug experimentation and marijuana use are widespread, the vast majority of the American public has never engaged in the type of serious drug abuse Obama admitted to in his teens (and likely well into his 20’s). Obama says he was virtually addicted to marijuana and bought all of the cocaine he could afford. How many Americans today fit Obama’s drug abuse profile? Not many.



So when you tie all of these threads together, what do they mean?



We are “defining deviancy down” in the White House when we elect or reelect a person who has history of drug abuse. The issue is as simple as that.



Ask any school administrator, local police force or our national anti-drug leaders, “Is drug abuse a problem?” The answer is “yes.” So why would we elect someone to the presidency whose very presence in the White House undermines the anti-drug message?



Recently in South Carolina (see links below) both a Republican and a Democrat were knocked out of a congressional race by sex scandals. In South Carolina, at least, people know where the line is drawn. Sex scandals and public hypocrisy are unacceptable.



But there does not appear to be a similar “bright line” for the presidency. Yet. Maybe I can help draw one.



Let me put the question to you another way. Do we want to have standards for moral conduct and personal behavior for those we consider electing to the presidency? Or does “anything go?” Are we willing to overlook and forgive and forego any examination of serious drug abuse in the candidates we consider for the presidency just because the abuse took place in a candidate’s high school years or early 20’s? The Washington Post has already told us “high school counts” when evaluating conservative candidates. How about liberals? Do their high school and college experiences also matter in considering their qualifications?



My purpose in writing these remarks is not to preach. It is to raise the question of whether because of Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades and Barack Obama’s drug abuse we have begun a slow but seriously destructive public policy of overlooking a candidate’s personal behavior.



How can a president or first lady proclaim a national policy of “fighting drug abuse” when we elect a man to serve as president who has a history of drug abuse? Is our policy “forgive and forget?” Or should there be consequences for earlier drug abuse?



During the 2000 presidential campaign I was criticized by Republicans for raising the question of then-Governor George W. Bush’s drug abuse and alcoholism. Like Obama, Bush was a drug and alcohol abuser well into his 20’s. Jeb Bush, the governor’s brother, attacked me and corrupted his gubernatorial power to harass me. Ari Fleischer, now a CNN “contributor,” also attacked me. But drug abuse was as relevant to Bush as it is to Obama. In speaking to what should be a “national” policy I do not recognize a double standard for Democrats and Republicans, conservatives and liberals. I have questioned whether candidates of both parties should be held to account. I am consistent. The liberal media have not been.



The American people need to demand, as I have been demanding since 2004 (see links below), that Barack (Obama stop lying to us and “come clean.” The American people have a right to demand that the media either “do their job” or step aside so that new media and independent media can examine Obama’s drug abuse and provide facts for an intelligent discussion on Obama’s fitness to serve as president.



As I said in 2008, and repeat today in 2012, Barack Obama is still very much “The Man Behind the Mask.” By refusing to examine Obama’s personal past the American people have been “defining deviancy down” without even realizing that is what we are doing.



I warned about Obama in 2008; many did not want to listen. I’m issuing warnings about him in 2012. We’ll see if voters listen this time. Obama has hinted to us what “reelection” means to him; freedom for him to destroy our institutions and to impose his radical socialist agenda by presidential diktat. He has also comforted his Russian buddies with the knowledge that it’s “reelection time.”



Obama himself has warned us big time what he plans to do if he is reelected; it’s no longer “high school.” In this election cycle Obama is “for real.”



I’m scared about Obama. Are you? Let’s have an intelligent discussion, deal with Obama’s facts, and ask voters to do likewise.

Andy Martin calls Senator Mark Kirk “the John Edwards of the Republican Party”

Internet Powerhouse and Illinois conservative leader Andy Martin says the Federal Election Commission Complaint filed against Senator Mark Kirk by his former wife Kimberly Vertoli is only part of Mark Kirk’s “career of criminality in Congress.” Andy will be devoting the week of June 4th to “Kirk Week,” with new attacks on Kirk and requests for criminal investigations. “Kirk victimized his own wife,” Andy says. “What more of a lowlife can you be? I salute Kimberly Vertoli for having the guts to step forward and tell the truth about the Kirkster. Former Senator John Edwards is on trial in criminal court for the same thing Mark Kirk did.” Andy has been a Kirk adversary for years, see http://www.markkirk.us/.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:



Internet Powerhouse and Illinois conservative leader Andy Martin reacts to election charges filed against Senator Mark Kirk by Kirk’s ex-wife



Andy says Kirk engaged in “conduit” campaign activity, which Andy says is illegal under federal law



Andy salutes Kimberly Vertoli for having the “courage and character” to stand up and tell the truth about Mark Kirk and his illegal schemes



Andy is already working on a similar criminal investigation involving “conduit” payments



Andy is bringing “Kirk Week” – a series of complaints and investigations against Kirk—to Chicago the week of June 4th



(NEW YORK)(May 29, 2012) Internet Powerhouse and Illinois Conservative leader Andy Martin said Monday morning that “Senator Mark Kirk is the John Edwards of the Republican Party, someone who tried to conceal the expenditure of campaign cash to cover up he had a friend on the payroll. The Federal Election Complaint filed against Kirk by his former wife, Kimberly Vertoli, is conclusive evidence Kirk has been a ‘congressional career criminal’ with endless deals and dodges.” The incident involves Dodie McCracken (“Andy calls her “McCrackers” for hanging around Kirk as a “beard”).



“Using a conduit to pay someone whose direct receipt might embarrass the senator is a criminal act,” Andy says. “I have an Ohio Republican crook against whom I filed a similar accusation, and he is being investigated by the FBI.



“Kirk has been receiving sympathy because of his tragic illness. But Kirk has lately been using his illness as a smokescreen to cause commotion in congress. The time to sympathize with Kirk is over.



“Next week, the week of June 4th, I am designating as ‘Kirk Week.’ I will be making major new announcements against Kirk during Kirk Week.



“I salute Kimberly Vertoli for stepping forward. She is an exceptionally brave and public-spirited American, precisely the type of person Kirk is not,” Andy says. “The law is on Vertoli’s side, see e.g. U.S. v. Boender, 649 F.3rd 650 (7th Cir. 2011)(and district court opinions); U.S. v. Mariani, 212 F.Supp.2d 361 (M.D. pa. 2002).

NEW YORK NEWS CONFERENCE: Andy Martin says Barack Obama must “come clean” concerning Obama’s drug abuse

Internet Powerhouse and Conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement, who then distanced himself from part of his creation, and who still controls the Internet’s anti-Obama agenda with Andy’s Hawai’i and Chicago-based research into Obama’s past, will hold a New York news conference today, Saturday, May 26, 2012 to demand that Barack Obama respond to Saturday’s “Choom Gang” stories and disclose all of his illegal drug abuse. Andy says Obama may be using David Maraniss to “launder” Obama past’s abuses and to provide cover for Obama’s on Obama’s fictional “autobiography” “Dreams From My Father.” “Obama won’t get away with it,” Andy says. “Our last investigation in Hawai’i was a blockbuster.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:



ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW YORK NEWS CONFERENCE



ATTENTION NATIONAL AND NEW YORK DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS



Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin says Barack Obama must “come clean” with the American people over Obama’s drug abuse



Andy says the national media have a double standard, highlighting trivialities in Mitt Romney’s teen years while ignoring serious drug abuse in Obama’s past



Andy asks why Obama’s “Choom Gang” story is being marginalized; “If Mitt Romney smoked dope, where would that story be in the newspaper and on evening news? On page One.”



“Try to find today’s (Saturday’s) ‘Choom Gang’ story in the New York Times,” Andy says. “The Times buried it”



Andy says Obama owes the American people a full explanation because Obama’s own “autobiography” (“Dreams From My Father”) is fiction



Andy suggests Obama may be using David Maraniss to “launder” Obama’s past abuses and to provide “cover” for Obama’s fictional “autobiography” “Dreams from My Father”



(NEW YORK)(May 26, 2012) Internet Powerhouse and Conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement, who then distanced himself from the more extreme elements of his creation, and who still controls the Internet’s anti-Obama agenda with Andy’s Hawai’i and Chicago-based research into Obama’s past, will hold a New York news conference today, Saturday, May 26, 2012 to demand that Obama “come clean” with the American people about Obama’s teenage drug addiction.



“Obama can’t tell us to read his ‘autobiography,’” Andy says. “In 2004 I was the first to prove that Obama’s ‘autobiography,’ ‘Dreams From My Father,’ was a work of fiction. (link below) Reporters in 2004-2008 were lying to the American people. Obama has made millions with an ‘autobiography’ that lies to readers and is almost entirely composed of imaginary ‘composite’ characters. Well Obama’s cocaine and marijuana abuse was not a ‘composite.’ Stay tuned for our own Hawai’i-based reporting.



“A few days ago we saw the Washington Post sensationalize a Mitt Romney story from high school, on page one. The Post created an anti-Romney feeding frenzy.



“Where is the Post’s page one interest in Obama’s drug abuse? (links below) The New York Times has ‘buried’ today’s ‘Choom Gang’ story. What would the Post and New York Times be saying if Mitt Romney had used cocaine? And if Romney had covered up his cocaine and marijuana abuse by using fictional ‘composite’ characters in a Romney ‘autobiography’ that was a ‘book of lies?’ Whoa, Nellie.



“It maybe that Obama is using Washington Post writer David Maraniss’ new book to ‘launder’ Obama’s past misdeeds. Maraniss notes that Obama glorified his drug dealer in his Punahou School yearbook. Who lists his drug dealer in a high school yearbook? Or was ‘Ray’ another fictional ‘composite’ character? Americans have a right to know. What’s ‘real’ about Obama. And what’s a lie?



“You can go way back to 2004 and see my comments about Obama have been generally accurate (links below). In the same period Obama has established he is a cunning, pathological liar. Liberal media say we should ‘forget’ about Obama’s past. But the American people know Obama was never ‘vetted’ in 2008. Why should anyone vote for an admitted drug addict that wants to live in the White House? Federal law bars drug users from living in public housing.



“Obama owes the American people more of an explanation that his bogus autobiography replete with fictional ‘composite’ characters provides,” Andy says.

ATTENTION NATIONAL AND NEW YORK DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS



Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin says the Facebook stock sale is the biggest scam in Wall Street history



With over fifty years of Wall Street experience Andy says Facebook stock “investors” are apparently forgetting everything they learned during the recent market collapse



Andy says that as a stock, Facebook shares are a “gamble,” not an “investment,” that are doomed to failure



(NEW YORK)(May 16, 2012) [Conservative blogger Andy Martin will hold a New York news conference today, Wednesday, May 16th to discuss the Facebook stock offering]



I come from a stock market family. I can’t give an exact date when I started monitoring Wall Street but it’s been well over fifty years. When my mom worked at United Aircraft, every day at breakfast I turned to the financial pages to see the share price of UAC. I think we had twenty-five shares or some paltry amount. In my family people talked stocks. There was no discussion of baseball or other sports. Just stocks. Penny stocks. Blue chip stocks. “Hot” stocks. I learned about all of them at a very early age.



I bought my own mutual fund shares at the age of 12 (paper route money).



My late Uncle Lucian Marcoux had survived the Depression so he was a very cautious investor. He got me hooked on reading the Wall Street Journal in high school. His dream was to visit the “Big Board,” the New York Stock Exchange. We went there in (I think) 1961. It was the “Own Your Share of American Business” era.



A lot has changed since 1961 on Wall Street, for the worse.



When it came time to open our New York management consulting office we landed close to Wall Street, in the new World Trade Center (Two WTC). I have been in the Wall Street neighborhood for a long time.



Along the way I’ve made money in the stock market. But as an economist I have always kept one eye on the exit door. I have a vivid memory of sitting downtown on Wall Street in 1973 and saying to myself it was time to dump my portfolio of “Nifty Fifty” shares. I don’t know if I made every last penny of profit, but I got out well ahead of the market collapse. My late uncle’s thought was that you never lose money by taking a profit. Good advice.



Americans went through a national crisis in 2008-2011. That calamity is still going on. Last week Chase Bank was caught gambling in the “derivatives” market and lost at least Two Billion Dollars, maybe more. People said it was “chump change” to Chase. People never learn. We are the chumps. Tens of billions of dollars of JPMorgan Chase stock market value vanished. Who lost?



Gordon Gekko is still the uncrowned king of Wall Street. “Greed is good,” he says. Says who?



Which bring me to the Facebook stock offering later this week.



Facebook seems to me to be the greatest stock scam in Wall Street history. The product (Facebook) stinks. People are being asked to “invest” in a fad which may be as ephemeral as hula hoops. Is Facebook a “powerful marketing tool?” In your dreams (see link below).



Yes, I have a Facebook account (see below). As a public figure I’m pretty much required to do so nowadays. People ask to “friend” me, although we turn down more people than we approve. We watch every name that pops up asking to be friended. We “don’t want no stinking” (Congressman) Anthony Weiner scandals on my Facebook account.



I have wanted to write about the uselessness of Facebook for over a year, but just never sat down to do the deed.



Facebook has a weak technology structure, though it has improved slightly in recent months. It is always freezing or stalling out for me. The new Facebook “format” is unintelligible. They implemented change for the sake of change. Expect more similar change. Wall Street loves change. “Investment” bankers demand it.



Wall Street is asking “investors” to “value” Facebook at over One Hundred Billion Dollars. Are we crazy? Did we learn nothing from the 2008 meltdown? One Hundred Billion Dollars of what?



“Growth stocks” have been around since the 1950’s, maybe earlier. And while investors made money with growth in earlier decades, today by the time a stock offering is priced for public sale there is no “growth” ahead, just an inflated valuation that cannot empirically keep track with future trends in the stock market. The “investment” bankers squeeze every penny they can out of the public. A great line on Wall Street, manifesting contempt for the investing public, is “Where are the customers’ yachts?” Customers are sheep, there to be sheared.



Individuals or institutions who invest in Facebook are guaranteeing themselves losses over the near term and especially over the long term. What could possibly motivate people to throw away their hard-earned cash on this latest Wall Street fad? No doubt brokerage firms will “pump and dump” the Facebook shares before Facebook eventually slips into oblivion.



When I was training to be a pilot our regular officers would caution us with the refrain “there are old pilots, and bold pilots, but no old, bold pilots.”



There are old stockbrokers, and bold stockbrokers, but not many old, bold brokers. The bold ones usually flame out as thieves or fools. They become fodder for the United States Attorney’s office. Facebook is a stock only Bernie Madoff could love. In fact, in some ways Facebook is the type of imaginary stock Madoff sold to his greedy “investors.” All sail and no anchor.



On Wall Street, the greater fool theory is still a bedrock principle of marketing. When you want to sell, to whom are you going to sell? Who is the greater fool? Brokers know. Do you?



Facebook is the greatest scam in Wall Street history, just four years after an epic stock market collapse. When Facebook implodes as it inevitably must, who is going to take the blame?



I wish I knew.



Don’t let it be you.

Barack Obama Sarong Song, Part One

video

Independent Republican Presidential Candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement, says that the new “Obama” book by David Maraniss is likely to have unintended consequences. “Maraniss may have been trying to present ‘just the facts,’” Andy says. “But the ‘facts’ about Obama’s post-college years are chilling. Obama was living in some kind of Asian ‘bubble’ where he waltzed around his girlfriend wearing a sarong (a male Asian dress-style garment). The public has always had doubts about Obama’s ‘inner’ life. Maraniss’ book is going to confirm and exacerbate those suspicions. Maraniss may not have intended that result, but increased suspicion and enhanced concern for Obama’s attachment to American values are the likely result of Maraniss’ work.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:



Republican Presidential candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin has posted his “Barack Obama Sarong Song, Part One” on one of Andy’s blogs



Andy predicts the “Sarong issue” is going to be to the 2012 presidential race what the “birth certificate” was to the 2008 campaign



Andy suggests David Maraniss’ new book may have the unintended consequence of increasing and expanding public doubts about Barack Obama’s “inner self”



Andy says Obama’s wearing of a sarong in Brooklyn and Manhattan in Obama’s early 20’s is strange behavior for a normal American to accept



Andy will be posting the “Barack Obama Sarong Song, Part One” on other media as he figures out how to do that, as well adding additional versions of the “Sarong Song”



With “Sarong Song” Andy takes up the cudgels of Andrew Breitbart by posting controversial political videos



(HONOLULU) (May 9, 2012) Independent Republican Presidential candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement and then distanced himself from his creation, has posted the “Barack Obama Sarong Song, Part One” on one of his blogs. Additional versions will be forthcoming. Andy is about to reprise his 2008 success in undermining public confidence in who Barack Obama really is, and what Obama really stands for. Andy’s “sarong issue” is about to enter American politics.



“David Maraniss’ new book has opened an ‘eye’ into Barack Obama’s ‘weirdness factor’ as a young college graduate,” Andy says. “By his early 20’s Obama was no longer a child playing in a sandbox. Obama was a young Columbia University graduate, apparently living in Manhattan and Brooklyn. And he was living what by any standards was a bizarre lifestyle. Genevieve Cook, Obama’s ‘composite’ but real life girlfriend, is quoted in David Maraniss new book as seeing Obama wearing a sarong at home.



“Most Americans don’t even know what a sarong is.



“Is Obama wearing a sarong in the White House? The question is a reasonable one.



“The ‘foreigner’ doubts which tens of millions of Americans have had about Obama have now been confirmed. Obama was wearing a sarong, a form of male house dress-like garment popular in Asia, in Brooklyn and Manhattan in his 20’s. ‘Saronging’ represented Obama’s self-image, his statement to the world of ‘who he was.’ Obama’s self-image is probably creepy for most Americans. You can’t get any more ‘foreign’ than wearing a sarong at home, in Brooklyn and Manhattan.



“I am no technical expert and working from a hotel suite it’s not easy to do ‘technical’ work. But I have managed to post ‘Barack Obama’s Sarong Song, Part One’ on the Internet.



“It may seem unlikely now, in May, but I predict the ‘Sarong issue’ is going to be to the 2012 election cycle what the ‘birth certificate’ was to the 2008 campaign: an eye into the mind of a very peculiar individual with a confused identity,” Andy says. “Obama’s wearing of a sarong will be a metaphor for his bizarre identity and Obama’s lack of attachment to ordinary, Main Street American values.”



“Barack Obama Sarong Song, Part One,” is only available on one of Andy’s blogs today (see link below). But the video will eventually be posted across the board on Andy’s blogs and hopefully on his YouTube channel as Andy struggles to overcome his limitations as a non-techie.

HONOLULU NEWS CONFERENCE Conservative blogger Andy Martin says Barack Obama blocks access to Obama’s original Hawai’i birth certificate

Independent Republican Presidential Candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement, will hold a Honolulu news conference Tuesday, May 8th to charge that President Barack Obama is blocking access to Obama’s original Hawai’i birth certificate. “Obama wants us to rely on his ‘copy’ of the original,” Andy charges. “But he does not want us to see the actual original piece of paper. Scholarly research is based on access to original texts, not Internet facsimiles. Obama is ‘de-legitimizing’ himself. He tries to manipulate his ‘image’ by providing access to sympathetic liberal journalists such as David Maraniss of the Washington Post; anyone who might be skeptical is ignored. Obama is stonewalling. Is it any wonder the American people don’t trust either Obama or his web-based birth certificate?”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:



ANNOUNCEMENT OF [HAWAII] PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN NEWS CONFERENCE



ATTENTION NATIONAL AND HAWAII DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS



Republican Presidential candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin says President Obama is blocking access to Obama’s original Hawai’i birth certificate



Andy says Obama tries to manipulate the truth by granting access to sympathetic liberal writers such as David Maraniss, and censoring conservatives and independents



Andy says Obama’s tactics are backfiring and explain the new anti-Obama firestorm (see North Carolina article below) which results from Obama’s continuing claims of secrecy for Obama’s original, official document



Andy says Obama’s “shucking and jiving” over access to the original is fueling national suspicion as to the authenticity of the White House facsimile birth certificate posted on the Internet



(HONOLULU) (May 8, 2012) Independent Republican Presidential candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement and then distanced himself from his creation, will hold a Honolulu news conference today, Tuesday, May 8, 2012 to charge that President Barack Obama is denying scholarly and research access to the original copy of his Hawai’i birth certificate.



Andy wrote to Obama seeking permission for access, and Obama has failed to respond.



“Once again we see Barack Obama shooting himself in the foot,” Andy says. “Obama gives favored access to sympathetic liberals such as David Maraniss, and ‘stonewalls’ everyone else. Why, if Obama has released a ‘copy’ of the original copy of his Hawai’i birth certificate, would Obama refuse to allow public access to the typewritten original document? Whether you dislike Obama or love him, he is a fact of American history. His ‘birth certificate’ is a historical document.



“Most states would proudly display the original document in the state archives. Only the smugglers in Hawai’i seek to keep Obama’s original document under lock-and-key.



“Having issued what he said was a copy of the original, why is Obama refusing to allow scholar access to the actual original? Obama is de-legitimizing himself.



My letter to Obama—which has gone unanswered—is self-explanatory:

President Barack Obama

The White House

Washington, DC 20500

via fax (202) 456-2461



Request for authorization to view and copy

original 1961 Hawai’i birth certificate



Dear President Obama:



I am writing to request written authorization from you directed to the State of Hawai’i authorizing me to view and copy your original 1961 birth certificate.



In 2011 you released a copy of your 1961 birth document. Some people, not including me, questioned the authenticity of that document. (I expressed no opinion.) Sheriff Joe Arpaio recently suggested your document may be a forgery. I don’t know.



I am an independent researcher and scholar who is only interested in finding the facts and searching for the truth.



I am leaving for Hawai’i in May to continue my research into your family history and I would like to view and copy the original document at that time. I would like to hold the original and give it a close look.



Scholarly research is always based on access to and examination of original texts, not copies. I was taught how to conduct scholarly research in the Bodleian Library at Oxford over fifty years ago.



In 2008 I filed the original lawsuit seeking access to your birth records.



There are two aspects to my request today.



First, your release of what you said in 2011 was a copy of the original may have waived any privacy or secrecy concerns on the part of state officials. If necessary, I could therefore file a “waiver” lawsuit under state law seeking access to the original. I would prefer not to sue if I can avoid it.



Second, if you authorize me to view the original document, and I attest to its authenticity, my review of the document may provide greater credibility for the document than your own release of a copy. The public record is clear that I have never subscribed to the “Kenyan birth” theory, and I have always maintained you were born in Hawai’i, which is why I sued in Hawaii in 2008 to see the original document.



If you send me a simple written authorization/direction to Hawai’i officials to review and copy the original 1961 document that will eliminate any need for a lawsuit and will expedite my access once I arrive in Honolulu.



On the issue of policy and political differences, I am very clearly one of your strongest and best informed opponents. Nevertheless, during my presidential campaign I have supported your policies in Libya and Iran.



On the other hand, when I conduct scholarly research I only dig for the truth and the facts. You may or may not be aware of my own theory (not fact) in which I claim your biological father may be Frank Marshall Davis.



Despite Frank’s left-leanings I find Frank an infinitely more interesting character (and potential father) that Barack Obama senior. You share a lot of Frank’s qualities and characteristics. Still, my thoughts are only a theory at this time.



I hope you will provide written authorization for me to view the original Hawai’i document.



I think a letter directed at the Hawai’i Department of Health authorizing me to view and copy your original birth certificate would be sufficient under Hawai’i law.



If, on the other hand, you still claim any privacy or secrecy rights under Hawai’i law I would appreciate being advised of that fact as well. I will bring your response to the attention of the court.



Respectfully submitted,



ANDY MARTIN

Conservative blogger Andy Martin says Hawaii officials are still denying access to president Barack Obama’s original birth certificate

Independent Republican Presidential Candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement, will hold a Honolulu news conference Sunday, May 6th to announce that Hawai’i state officials are still denying access to President Obama’s original birth certificate. Andy’s presence in Hawai’i comes as a new Birther “explosion” is sweeping across the political landscape in the 2012 election season. “Why are Hawai’i officials illegally denying access to the original, when Obama claims he has released a ‘copy’ of the original,” Andy demands. Andy is in Honolulu continuing his research and investigation into President Obama’s “Hawai’i years. His earlier research into Obama’s past has recently been validated by the British government and other sources.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:



ANNOUNCEMENT OF [HAWAII] PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN NEWS CONFERENCE



ATTENTION NATIONAL AND HAWAII DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS



Republican Presidential candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin says Hawai’i officials are still denying access to President Obama’s original birth certificate



Andy says Hawai’i officials cannot lawfully maintain secrecy of Obama’s original birth certificate when Obama claims to have released a “copy” and posted a “copy” on the official White House web site



Andy says that Hawai’i officials are creating a new anti-Obama firestorm (see North Carolina article below) by continuing to claim secrecy for Obama’s official records



(HONOLULU) (May 6, 2012) Independent Republican Presidential candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin, the man who single-handedly created the anti-Obama “Birther” movement and then distanced himself from his creation, will hold a Honolulu news conference today, Sunday, May 6, 2012 to charge that Hawai’i officials are still illegally denying access to President Barack Obama’s original birth certificate.



Andy says, “President Obama claims to have made a ‘copy’ of his original birth certificate available. He even posted a copy of the copy on the official White House web site (link below). If the birth certificate is public, how can Hawaii officials seek to keep it private? Obama has waived any privacy or secrecy rights by publicly releasing what he says is a copy of an authentic document.



“One of the basic principles of scholarly research and writing is that scholars always want to examine the original. Researchers deal with reviewing original texts, not accepting web site reproductions of official records as alternatives. Even an original copy of the Declaration of Independence is available at the National Archives. What's wrong with Hawai’i?



“Hawai’i officials are embarrassing president Obama and lighting a match to a new firestorm of Birther controversy (see North Carolina link below). While I disassociate myself from extreme elements of the Birther movement, I believe it is absolutely necessary and appropriate for Hawaii officials to allow access and viewing of the original record now that the president has authorized release of that document. How can you say the document is ‘secret’ when the president has posted what he says is a copy of the document on the White House web site?”



Andy’s letter to Hawai’i officials follows (the response of Hawai’i officials is an attachment to emailed copies of this news release):

Way back in 2008 I sued the HDOH when it refused to provide access to President Barack Obama’s original birth certificate. The mumbo jumbo at the time was that record was “secret.” Hawaii’s notoriously corrupt judicial system rubber-stamped the decision.



Since then President Obama has sent someone to Hawai’i, received a certified copy of the original document, and posted it on the White House web site. So the information contained on the original is no longer secret. Secrecy has been waived.



Nevertheless, as a scholar and historian I would like to examine the original document. Scholars and researchers always examine original texts and not electronic copies. The document is a historical archive.



I am coming to Honolulu next week and I would like to make arrangements to view the original copy of the Obama birth certificate. I assume you are no longer making arguments based on secrecy since the document is no longer secret.



Please let me know what arrangements can be made to view the original Obama birth certificate.



I would appreciate a response by fax or email as I am on the road a great deal and these come right to my computer.



Respectfully submitted,



ANDY MARTIN

Republican presidential candidate, conservative blogger Andy Martin says David Maraniss’ new book confirms all of Andy’s prior claims about Barack Obama

Independent Republican Presidential Candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin landed in Honolulu as Vanity Fair was publishing excerpts from David Maraniss’ new book on Barack Obama. “Well, coincidence of coincidence,” Andy says, “Just as we arrived in Honolulu to continue our investigations into Obama’s ‘Hawai’i years,’ Maraniss independently confirmed Obama is a total fraud. Obama concocted an imaginary ‘white girl friend’ and lived like a total freak in his mid-20’s. Americans are endangered every day that Barack Nobama spends in the White House. My Honolulu investigation could not be more timely.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:



ANNOUNCEMENT OF [HAWAII] PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN NEWS CONFERENCE



ATTENTION NATIONAL AND HAWAII DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS



Republican Presidential candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin says President Barack Obama is a “total fraud”



Andy landed in Hawai’i Wednesday just as David Maraniss’ new book disclosed more “composite characters” in Barack Obama’s “bogus autobiography”



Andy says Obama makes President Richard Nixon “look like an open book”



Andy says that his 2004 exposure of Obama as a fraud, and Andy’s demand that publishers [in 2004] withdrew Obama’s book as a “bogus biography,” have once again been confirmed by another independent author



Andy is planning new actions while he is in Honolulu investigating Obama’s “Hawai’i years”



Andy predicts Obama’s “sarong moment” may have more impact on public perception of Obama and the 2012 presidential election than even the bogus composite girlfriend



(HONOLULU) (May 3, 2012) Republican Presidential candidate and conservative blogger Andy Martin will hold a Honolulu news conference today, Thursday, May 3, 2012 to take credit for having exposed President Barack Obama as a fraud in 2004 (links below).



Andy says he has been completely vindicated by David Maraniss’ new book on Obama. Maraniss exposes new fictional characters in Obama’s “autobiography.” “Barack Obama is a complete fraud,” Andy says. Every day that Obama is in the White House the American people are in danger.



Andy has made numerous trips to Hawai’i investigating Obama, and has become a “virtual Kama’aina” after years in the Aloha State



Andy predicts that Obama’s “sarong moment,” as disclosed by Genevieve Cook in Maraniss’ book (link below), may more to undermine Obama than even the newly-disclosed sexual adventures.



Andy says “Obama’s New York sarong lifestyle” could decide the 2012 presidential election



“Eight years ago I exposed that Obama had written a fictional, not autobiographical, account of his life,” Andy will state today in Honolulu. “Yesterday David Maraniss’ new book confirmed that Obama even fabricated his ‘white girl friend,’ who was a ‘composite’ of women in New York, Chicago and elsewhere.



“We landed in Honolulu Wednesday evening. We announced our latest trip in early March. Obama is feeling the pressure of our new investigations. Our new disclosures expose Obama as a liar and fraud and other authors such as Maraniss are confirming my own research and writing. Obama has become a worldwide laughingstock (link below).



“Obama makes psychologically challenged President Richard Nixon look like an open book. Obama lied from the first day he appeared on the Illinois political scene, he lied his way onto the national stage, and he lied his way into the White House.



“A leader must be trusted. But how can you trust a man that lies about every aspect of his life, who fabricates every phase of his experience, who presents a paper maché portrait of himself—and labels it all ‘autobiography?’



“The issue isn’t whether Obama had sex with a white woman in Greenwich Village. No one cares. I could care less. The issue is that Obama repeatedly lied and fabricated and bamboozled booksellers and publishers into placing his book on the ‘non-fiction’ list, on the autobiographical shelves, when it should have been placed in the fiction department. Obama's work is a decent novel.



“How many 'composite characters' does it take to move a book from fact to fiction? What is true about Obama’s ‘Hawai’i years,’ and what is fiction? That’s what I am in Honolulu to find out.



“Is there any doubt the mainstream media lied to the American people in 2008? Is there any doubt why the American people do not trust either Obama or his mainstream media megaphone?



“The media are now trying to cover-up their own fraudulent practices by belatedly claiming Obama disclosed in the introduction to his book that some ‘characters’ were composite. True, but misleading. Obama never disclosed in his book who was a real person and who was a composite. The reader was left to guess what was truthful and what was imaginary. In an autobiography?



“My own mother asked me last month, ‘Why go back to Hawai’i; don’t we already know all there is to know about Hawai’i?’ The answer was ‘no’ we don’t. My research team, unlike Donald Trump’s imaginary ‘investigators,’ is actually here and actually investigating. For doubting Thomas’, they can ‘touch me’ if they require a Jesuitical confirmation of my actual presence in Hawai’i.



“Eight years ago I began breaking news about Obama. No one wanted to believe. Eight years later I am still breaking news.



“And, by the way, although the ‘Israel’ aspects of the 2004 news conference are beyond the scope of today’s news conference, I predicted in 2004 that Obama would pose a threat to Israel. How’s that for a 100% accurate crystal ball?” Andy asks. “Maraniss, David Remnick and others are decent authors. But my analysis and interpretation of Obama’s character has been peerless when to comes to exposing who Obama really is to the American people.



“I have been 100% right on Barack Obama from the first words I wrote abut him in 2004. The tragedy has been that no one wanted to listen. As the bible tells us, ‘there are none so blind as those who will not see, none so deaf as those who will not hear.’



“Every day the American people pay a high price for their own stupidity, laziness, corruption, ignorance and gullibility in giving Barack Obama the keys to the White House.



“Finally, to show that I do not focus merely on the salacious, I will make a bold prediction: David Maraniss’ picture of Barack Obama, a man in his mid-20’s, living in New York City, wearing an Indonesian male house dress, may have more impact on public perceptions of Obama than even the sexual issues. What normal American man is wearing a sarong (an Indonesian ‘dress’ worn by men) at home in his mid-20s? Newton Gingrich may have withdrawn as a presidential candidate; but Gingrich's depiction of Obama as ‘foreign’ could not have been more accurate. The ‘sarong issue’ could decide the 2012 election.



“Sarong, anyone?



“More than a decade after Obama supposedly moved back to the United States he was still wearing a sarong and acting like an Indonesian at home. Genevieve Cook’s exposure is devastating to ‘the president of whatever Jimmy Fallon called him,’” Andy predicts.
