(Honolulu, HI)(May 11, 2009) Internet powerhouse Andy Martin will hold a Honolulu news conference today, Monday, May 11th as he launches a week of activism in support of and takes his protest to Governor Linda Lingle’s doorstep.

Martin is in Hawai’i to produce the first movie on Barack Obama’s adolescence: “Obama: The Hawai’i years.”

“We have encountered nothing but stonewalling from the Governor and Attorney General Mark Bennett,” says Martin, “nothing but lack of cooperation, discourtesy and outright abuse in the search for Hawaii’s original records on Barack Obama. The Attorney General of Hawai’i is a corrupt and discourteous political hack that has done everything he can to obstruct and delay access to official records.

“Both Lingle and Bennett are violating Hawaii’s own state laws.

“Hawai’i may be celebrating its 50th anniversary of ‘statehood,’ but the place is as lawless and unprincipled as a wild west territory. These people do not respect the American people. They do not respect the fact that a state where an American president was born owes fellow Americans all the truth, not just ‘Obama tourism’ and Obama disinformation, and

“I have managed my efforts as a historical researcher on Obama by two polestars: find the facts; tell the truth. Lingle and Bennett do neither.

“They are both violating the Hawai’i Uniform Information Practices Act. I’m here in Honolulu to say that the American people are not going to tolerate Hawai’i lawlessness and contempt for historical research any longer. People are fighting back with an economic quarantine of the state.

“We can take our tourist dollars elsewhere; we can avoid Hawai’i businesses and products.

“Boycotts, of course, always impose a hardship on local citizens. But Hawai’ians have a remedy: they can vote the rascals out of office; people can demand that historical records be made available to the American people. Then, and only then, will the boycott be lifted.

“The political classes in Washington and Honolulu are pretending that historical facts about Obama’s origins in Hawai’i can be concealed indefinitely. What are they hiding?

“To claim as Hawai’i Judge Bert Ayabe did that Obama has a ‘privacy’ interest in his birth certificate is to make an ass of the Hawai’i courts.

“Linda Lingle and her administration are concealing Obama’s original 1961 typewritten birth certificate. We will continue the fight to make it public, as well as to seek the disclosure of any other Hawai’i state records concerning President Obama,” Martin says.

“In the meantime, the boycott is on; the boycott is continuing. The boycott is biting. And slowly the boycott is impacting on Hawaii’s economy. Republicans, Democrats and Independents are all tourists. There is a natural suspicion of the local veil of secrecy over Obama’s records.

"Now that Barack Obama is in the White House, unease is growing about his past. Issues, carefully swept under the carpet during the campaign, are emerging into the full light of day.

“When public officials hide the truth, conceal the facts and deny access to the evidence, they fan the speculation, hysteria and even resistance. I am working hard to find the facts and tell the truth because every day I see increasingly strident e-mails questioning Obama’s family history. Much of this suspicion would be alleviated and eliminated by release of the 1961 certificate. Why are they hiding it, and what are they hiding?

“In closing, I want to point out that is both functionally separate from and practically related to the movie production ‘Obama: The Hawai’i years.’ In the movie, we are looking for facts and testimony. Obviously, access to the BC would be a big help. Sadly I see no prospect of cooperation from Hawaii officials. Both parties in Hawai’i are just as corrupt as their reputations.”
