Andy Martin: Barack Obama is not eligible to serve as president

In Part Three of his “Birther Chronicles” Andy Martin prepares to explain why Barack Obama is not constitutionally eligible to serve as president. Martin, who Obama operatives call “The King of the Birthers,” has performed exhaustive investigations both on the scene in Hawai’i and in legal literature. He will hold a news conference in New York May 26th to release his findings on Obama’s eligibility. Martin will tie the release of his legal opinion on Obama’s constitutional eligibility to the possible court martial case of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin who is demanding proof that Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve as Commander In Chief.

(NEW YORK)(May 25, 2010)’s Executive Editor, Andy Martin, will hold a New York City news conference Wednesday, May 26th to issue his legal opinion that Barack Obama is not eligible to serve as President due to the fact he is not a “natural born citizen” by Obama’s own admission.

“During the past six years that I have studied Barack Obama the ‘natural born citizen’ issue has risen to paramount importance. Previously I have not expressed a definitive opinion. On Wednesday I will do so.

“My legal opinion and conclusion will be communicated to the U. S. Army and will, I believe, have a blockbuster impact on the Pentagon. Lt. Col. Terry Lakin has refused to go to Afghanistan on the basis that Barack Obama is not eligible to be president. While I will be acting ‘in’ Colonel Lakin’s case, I am not involved with Lakin's defense and my opinions are completely independent of the advice given by his attorneys.

“Nevertheless, the issues Lakin raises present two separate and independent questions: [1] Is Obama constitutionally eligible to be president? [2] What if he is not eligible? What happens next? Where does that leave Col. Lakin?

“My conclusion is that Barack Obama is not constitutionally eligible, by his own admission, to serve as president.

“I have been working up to this conclusion for approximately a year. This why I believe Obama operatives stole the tapes from my April, 2009 First National Conference on Barack Obama’s Missing Birth Certificate held in Washington, DC.

“I sketched out substantially the same views in our Second National Conference in December and I have been somewhat tardy to get that tape on the Internet. It’s coming.

“There has been a lot of confusion about Obama’s ‘birthplace,’ which is not marked anywhere in Hawai’i. Nevertheless, I did not want to rush to judgment. There have been numerous lawsuits over Obama’s eligibility. I predicted in advance that all of these cases would be dismissed, and they were. But none of them were dismissed on their constitutional merits. I have not been a part of any of any prior ‘eligibility’ litigation. I was not ready to issue a formal opinion.

“I do not plan to file a lawsuit after I issue my opinion on Wednesday. The only 'Obama' lawsuits I have pending are in Hawai’i. One case seeks to force Hawai’i to release Obama’s original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate. The other lawsuit seeks to compel Governor Linda Lingle to comply with Hawaii’s Uniform Information Procedures Act. That’s it for me.

“Our research team kept at it while I was in Hawai’i earlier this month. We have carefully analyzed the opinions and conclusions of others, both pro and con, as well as the underlying constitutional principles concerning [1] Obama’s eligibility [2] removal from office if he is ineligible.

“I am sure we will manage to present arguments and conclusions that will leave everyone unsatisfied. But that’s the nature of independent research and legal conclusions.

“Although Obama’s operatives call me the ‘King of the Birthers,’ and I accept that title, I am not in fact a ‘birther’ as the term is commonly understood. I am a ‘doubter.’ I believe that Obama was born in Hawai’i. Nevertheless, those Americans who have relentlessly demanded that Obama release his original Hawai’i birth certificate have performed a valuable public service. We are entitled to draw an ‘adverse inference’ from Obama’s refusal to produce the document.

“For myself, after exhaustive research, I still have not seen any credible evidence that Obama was born anywhere else but Hawai’i. But that ‘birth’ is only part of the ‘natural born citizen’ requirement and inquiry.

“My movie ‘Obama: The Hawai’i Years’ is available to view on several of my web sites [see e.g.,,] where we provide some explanation about Obama’s origins.”
