In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg released the "Pentagon Papers," which contained top-secret information about the military conflict in Viet-Nam, to The New York Times

(Nov. 17, 2010) — The Post & Email received the following press release from Andy Martin, who has just concluded his conference in Honolulu on Obama’s origins, religion and unknown personal history.

Dear Reader:

All of us at Obamacon 2012 are in Honolulu for a very specific purpose: to root out the truth about President Barack Obama’s personal history.

The convention has been a spectacular success. We are issuing statements on Obama’s religion, education and “roots” in Hawai’i, and reminding the American people (and the somnolent American media) that Obama’s life story is a blank. I am indebted to everyone who has participated.

In this letter I would like to do two things. First I would like to make another appeal for financial support for Obamacon 2012 and our continuing efforts. Second, I want to connect Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers battle in 1971 to the work being done today by so-called “Birthers,” now 100 million strong. Birthers/Doubters are the 100 million Americans who question Barack Obama’s “story.”

Let me get the money out of the way. We can’t operate on hot air. We need your financial support. We do everything we can to keep costs under control but cash is still in short supply. Obama’s supporters have donated over a billion dollars to his political committees. That’s why Obama is strong and his opponents are weak.

If you have not yet made a contribution, please make an online donation at www.CommitteeofOneMilliontoDefeatBarackObama.com, or if you prefer ultimate privacy send us a check or money order at our mailing address in New York. Just remember we can’t do the good work we are doing without your financial support. The more you contribute, the more resources we have to fight for the truth and the facts about the pretender/usurper in the White House.

Now on to the Ellsberg connection.

While I was still a law student at the University of Illinois I was asked by some friends at a Chicago newspaper to help them decipher a paper trail involving corrupt judges on the Illinois Supreme Court. Even before I received my Juris Doctor diploma I was warned that the Supreme Court was going to retaliate against me for assisting the newspaper in fighting corruption. The court did just that, by trying to brand me a bad person as “payback” for my small role in eventually removing two corrupt justices from the Illinois Supreme Court.

Over the decades I have never looked back, or expressed regret at what I felt was the profound moral necessity to confront corruption in the courts. It was a liberating experience to be free to expose abuses in the judicial system.

A couple of years after my battle with the Supreme Court began (it dragged on for years) Daniel Ellsberg released the “Pentagon Papers” to the media in 1971 and exposed how Americans had been deceived about the Viet-Nam War. Ellsberg’s behavior manifested for great personal courage. He forfeited his bright career on the alter of truth and justice. Ellsberg was attacked by many who felt Americans could not be trusted with the truth and the facts.

Listening to Ellsberg in Honolulu last Saturday gave me comfort that I had chosen the right path in life. Ellsberg is still full of energy for fighting the good fight against government secrecy and political perfidy. And he is still controversial.

In retaliation I wrote the first critical article about Barack Obama in 2004, over six years ago. My comments questioned some of Obama’s claims about his family history and religious conversion. In 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 I continued to expose new lies about Obama’s past. Obama’s political gangsters led by David Axelrod increased the tempo of their attacks on me.

I was brutally attacked by left-wing, tax exempt organizations subsidized by the evil George Soros and his thugs.

But it was not only liberals who smeared me. Rupert Murdoch and Fox News attacked me to appease Obama. In other words, when “conservatives” thought the wind was blowing in Obama’s direction, and media mogul Murdoch wanted to curry favor with the forthcoming Obama administration, Fox News threw me under the bus as a matter of corporate convenience. Fox news has never apologized for smearing me for telling the truth on Hannity. (You can see my Hannity appearance at our web sites, www.StopObamaCoalition.com and www.CommitteeofOneMilliontoDefeatBarackObama.com

Everything I said about Obama on the Hannity program turned out to be true.

When I started questioning Obama in 2004, I was a “committee” of one. Today nearly one hundred million Americans share my doubts about the mystery man in the Oval Office.

What are the media doing today? They are still protecting and promoting Obama. The liberal media call us “Birthers” because we ask for evidence of where Obama was born. No original documents have ever appeared to support Obama’s claims. The public has never seen Obama’s original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate. Hawai’i Governor Linda Lingle has betrayed every effort to obtain access to Obama’s original records. No hospital records from 1961 have ever been released. The circumstances of Obama’s birth remain a secret. The address listed in 1961 birth announcements was a residence where Obama never lived.

As for being called a “Birther,” I accepted that term as shorthand for “Doubter.” I have serious doubts about Barack Obama’s origins. So do 100 million Americans.

In the case of the Pentagon Papers, the government was concealing its own records from the American people. In the case of the “Obama Papers,” Obama is concealing his personal papers and concealing the truth about himself from the American people.

So what’s the bottom line? Today there are 100 million brave Americans who are enduring the same abuses from the political establishment that the American people experienced during the Viet-Nam era. Our crime? We want Obama to produce evidence from 1961 documenting where he was born, not just a laser print-out from a state of Hawai’i database.

We want Obama to authorize the release of his Punahou School, Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard Law School records. We would like to see his baptismal records, if any, from Trinity United Church. Is this too much to ask of the president of the United States?

We want to know how Obama paid private school fees in Honolulu; how he paid for a private colleges in California, Columbia University in New York and Harvard Law School.

I have serious concern that Barack Obama is the greatest fraud in American history. All of us, all 300 million Americans, not just “Doubters” and Birthers, are the victims.

Just as the media betrayed us during the Viet-Nam era, the media betrayed us during the Obama campaign when they concealed evidence that Obama was ineligible for the presidency. Any debate was stifled. Media covered up any evidence that Obama’s résumé as not genuine and smeared anyone (me in particular, but many others as well) who dared to stand up and question Obama origins.

My spirit is strong and I will continue to confront Obama and ask the questions that need to be asked about his origins. I draw my strength from your growing numbers. Together we will arrive at the truth, find the facts and learn just who Barack Obama really is.

May God bless all of you who share this journey with me.

  1. I’ve had the same concerns that several of you posters have. That too many people appear to be in on the silence about the BC/ eligibility issue. That many of these people are heartfelt patriotic citizens comes across very loud and clear. So what IS going on? All I can conclude is there is a need to both wake the sleeping giant and get him to pay attention to something while at the same time preparing an offense against it. The only other explanation is they are all agents or double agents working to flush out every single patriot and identify them for “reeducation camp” like Pol Pot. In either case you should have nothing to fear but your own failure to live up to your own standards. Here is where the wheat separates from the chaff and man forms from boy. Stick to your values and look evil in the eye and tell it if it wants what you have MOLON LABE! I am sorry if I put anyone on edge from their comfort zone but you’re an imbecile for not being on that edge already. Think gunnery sgt ret. R Lee Ermey becoming a therapist and you get the picture.

  2. A series of vids with a retired NY Intelligence Officer reveals some interesting information about Obama and his ties to at least 100 communist/socialist groups who supported him during his run for pres. (and now, likely). Talks about how Soros was originally supporting Hillary, and when Obama popped onto the scene, was DUMPED by Soros in favor of Obama. You know Media Matters is a Soros front group, which was established with the help of Hillary, so this makes sense.

    The communist party runs DEEP in the US.


  3. To Andy: I consider you to be a charlatan, sir. You’ve had 2+ years to produce facts. Instead you treat your reading public as if we are idiots. You ask for money and hype that you have some information to disclose. Then you produce nothing but more hype. You remind me of a soap opera. Either produce something of substance or sit down and remain silent. I stopped reading your stuff 2 years ago when I realized you are nothing more than a “player” looking to make some cash off of people’s genuine and reasonable distress and concern about the man sitting in the WH. That’s not a matter to be taken lightly. Shame on you, Andy.

  4. After all this time with no answers to very simple, easily answered questions, I think – guess — that BHO Sr. is not BHO II’s father. My guess is that whoever is BHO II’s father is a US Citizen which would ultimately make him a “Natural Born Citizen” of the US.

    Here’s the problem: I don’t want a president who must lie about his origins. There are children’s books that tell his life story as the son of a Kenyan. The public record says he is the son of a Kenyan. And, he got elected even though he is not a NBC of the US. That, in effect, has established precedent that that any non-NBC can now become POTUS. Not okay. I’m not interested in merely embarrassing Obama or his family but Article II eligibility requirements set forth in the US Constitution cannot be summarily dismissed as irrelevant. No one has a right to be President of the US. If Obama must lie/deceive the American people about his origins, well, then that’s not acceptable. He should have more love and respect for his nation and the US Constitution. He shouldn’t have run, period.

    I simply cannot believe that everyone is conspiring to put Obama in the White House, i.e., Rush, Levin, Hannity, Beck, etc. There’s something else going on and it MUST be HUGE. . .and thus scary. . .and I’m real angry about it. The 2008 election was the first time in my life I realized that the American people do NOT actually elect our Presidents and Congress. Something is desperately wrong and cannot be permitted to continue.

    1. This will not fly because it conflicts with Article 4, Section 1 of the Constitution. Texas *must* accept what Hawaii has to say about it:
      “Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State.”

      1. I find that very hard to believe. Only one state is required to say a candidate is eligible and he is then eligible in all 50? I don’t know the detail, but I am calling BS on that bit of information. Actually, the Democrat Party of Hawaii never said he was eligible, they changed their acceptance form to leave out any mention of “Constitutional eligibility”, just for Obama.

        You are saying that not only do the states have no responsibility to determine eligibility, but that they cannot do so even if they want to? Again, I don’t believe that.

  5. Wow. I must admit, my opinion of Hannity has taken a DEEP nose dive these past two years that he has not given any real effort to finding the REAL Obama. Even Mark Levin has rudely dismissed callers who have tried to bring up the subject. Limbaugh takes subtle shots at Obama on this issue. It pretty well frosts me. I wonder WHY they can’t speak more about it. There is, without a doubt, a real conspiracy there.

    1. Fear is why. They have all been “talked to”. They, Levin and Beck in particular, lash out at the issue because their silence about this is in direct conflict of their self-images as brave patriotic fighters. It is a terrible emotional strain to put on the outward persona of a warrior while knowing in your heart you are a coward.

      I would love to believe that behind the scenes they all are working on a plan to loudly broach this subject at the same time. Imagine if all of them said, “After careful and thorough investigation I have concluded that the person who sits in the oval office is a usurper. This person has no legal right to hold that position, is a criminal and needs to be arrested and put in jail until a proper investigation of just how deep this conspiracy goes is concluded.” All at once on the same day! Man that would be a great day for this country.
