Is Barack Obama Lying About His Life Story?

Columnist Says Barack Obama 'Lied To The American People;'Asks Publisher to Withdraw Obama's BookTuesday August 10, 9:22 pm ET

NEW YORK, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ --'s independent contrarian columnist, Andy Martin, will publish a column and hold simultaneous news conferences in New York and London on Wednesday, August 11th to disclose he believes Barack Obama is a political fraud who "lied to the American people." Martin has asked Crown Books to stop sales of Obama's book because of its fraudulent content. Martin says Obama may be a threat to the Jewish community.


New York:Time/date: Wednesday, August 11, 2004 11:00 A.M.Location: Northeast Corner of Fifth Avenue and 65thStreet (Temple Emanu-El)

London:Time/date: Wednesday, August 11, 2004 4:00 P.M.Location: 2 Dryden Mansions, Queens Club Gardens London W14"I feel sad having to expose Barack Obama," says Martin, "but the man is a complete fraud. The truth is going to surprise, and disappoint, and outrage many people who were drawn to him. He has lied to the American people, and he has sought to misrepresent his own heritage.

"Obama's life story is vastly different from the one he portrays. My point: if he will lie about his mother and father, what else is he lying about? Can we expect 'bimbo eruptions?'"

Fiction: Obama stated in his Convention speech: 'My father ... grew up herding goats.' The 'goat herder' claim has been repeated endlessly. It is a lie.

Fact: Obama's grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama was a prominent and wealthy farmer. His son, Obama's father, was a child of privilege, not privation. He was an outstanding student, not a herdsman.

"Fiction: Obama was given an 'African' name. Fact: Obama is a Muslim who has concealed his religion. I am a strong supporter of the Muslim community, and I believe Muslims have been scapegoated. Obama has a great opportunity to be forthright. Instead, he has treated his Muslim heritage as a dark secret. His grandfather was named 'Hussein.' That is an Arabic-Muslim, not African, name. Hussein was a devout Muslim and named his son, Barack Senior, 'Baraka.' Baraka is an Arabic word meaning 'blessed.' Baraka comes out of the Koran and Arabic, not Africa.

"Barack Senior was also a devoted Muslim, and also chose a Muslim name for his son, our own Barack Obama, Junior. Again, his name was an Arabic and Koranic.

Obama has spent a lifetime running from his family heritage and religious heritage. Would his father have given his son a Koranic name if the father was not a devout Muslim? Obama's stepfather was also a Muslim. Obama will be the first Muslim-heritage senator; he should be proud of that fact. There is nothing to be ashamed of in any of the three great Abrahamic religions.

"Fiction: Obama Senior was a harmless student 'immigrant' who came to the United States only to study.

Fact: Obama was part of one of the most corrupt and violent organizations in Africa: the Kenyatta regime. Obama's father ran back to Kenya soon after the British left. It is likely Obama's father had Mau Mau sympathies or connections, or he would not have been welcomed into the murderous inner circle of rapists, murderers, and arsonists.

I believe Obama's secret shame at his family history of rape, murder and arson is what actualizes him. Our research is not yet complete. We are seeking to examine British colonial records. Our investigation to date has drawn on information on three continents.

"And what about Obama's beloved Kenyan brothers and sisters? None of his family was invited to Boston to share his prominence. Are his relatives being kept in the closet? Where are they? More secrecy, more prevarication.

"It is time for Barack Obama to stop presenting a fantasy to the American people. We are forgiving and many would still support him. It may well be that his concealment is meant to endanger Israel. His Muslim religion would obviously raise serious questions in many Jewish circles where Obama now enjoys support," Martin states.

"Our investigation is continuing. In he meantime, Crown Books should stop selling Obama's novelization of his life. We have asked Crown to do that. Obama is living a lie."

RESOURCES: Martin's columns at (Govt & Politics); E-mail:

We shall see. I have never heard anything bad about Barak Obama previously. However, I must admit, his meteoric rise does concern me. He is charismatic, no doubt. But, one of the things I have always thought was important about the process by which America selects its leaders is that it is rare for a leader to come out of nowhere, ascending to high political position without an extensive and well-known political history.

Who is Barak Obama? We shall see, I would imagine.

His face is on the cover of TIME under the heading "The Next President". This issue needs to be cleaned up ASAP. If this man is a closet Muslim ringer WE NEED TO KNOW. NOW. If he isn't, if he is indeed who he says he is, we also need to know that because this is not the last rumor that will need to be chased down -- so the sooner we have the facts, the better.

I think that this is some crazy conspiracy theory, but not so crazy that it doesn't need factual refutation.

Whether Obama runs or not, I still support Hilary for the Democrats and Tancredo for the Republicans.

I gotta say, you guys are cool. No one is just accepting this stuff face value. Who knows if it is true?

If it is true, it will come out.

Well, it would be pretty difficult to hide anything that big these days with so much access to info. All the more reason to take advantage of that and be sure the "next President" is who and what he says he is.

Pastorius said...

Thanks. I don't know anything about Andy Martin. Can you provide links?

Anonymous said...

I found him. Little creep had a campaign going to "free Sami Al-Arian" as part of his wider campaign to free the Palestinians from the yoke of Israeli imperialism yada yada yada...

Wonder what he's got against Obama?

Thanks for the heads up, Anonymous. That's one more gonzo rumor we don't have to waste time on.

Pastorius said...

Please provide a link, and I will put it on the front page to discredit the point of this man's article.

am sorry to comment but i have to admit that listening to someone spread propaganda about obama is very sad...Baraka is not a koran word as the writer wants us to believe but its a swahili word for blessing. kenya where obama senior hails from have two national languages swahili and english.
Let the writer substantiate his claims rather that speak lies about obama. about kenyatta and african leadership he must understand that he needs to travel to kenya and learn the history of politics from that end..and not just read the distorted facts he wants us to believe u may hate obama for any reason ...i just wanna let u know that it doesn't matter, whatever reason u hate him, try to speak the truth than lie about it that's what makes u! who u are...!

Pastorius said...


For Christ's sake. Did you not read my words, or the words of the commenters here. None of us have taken this rumor at face value.

Jeez, get some reading comprehension.

911 was propaganda until it happened. How can you trust anyone to be president of America when they spent 2 years in Pakistan. Americans have always been unsafe in Pakistan, how did Obama survive there for 2 years, with apparently no survival problems? If this is propaganda, then I want to know what Obama did while living in these very heavy Muslim countries. Young people are easily brainwashed to be anti-American, especially those who have only been American for a generation. Obama like Osama is a scary word in America and they both are the names of many Muslims. Kenya, Obama's father's homeland, has a very large Muslim presence. Don't be so eager to make Obama a Christian, when he may very well be a secret Muslim with a hidden agenda. These guys have been brainwashed since birth and have been taught to hide their inner hatred for America until it is time to actually do terorism. How do we know Obama is immune from such brainwashing. The terrorists have said they will raise a flag at the White House. How do we know it won't be Obama's doing that raises that flag? I just want to know the truth and Obama is making it difficult for Americans to get that information. We Americans who don't take everything we hear as the gospel truth want Obama to bring his past into the light. We want the details of his 2 years in Pakistan (one of the birth places for terrorists plots and training grounds for Islamic terrorists) and 4 years in Indonesia, . Come clean Obama. Shine the flashlight of truth on your Islamic childhood!

its very sad to read articles full of lies from one person who want to destroy somebody's image and kenya, Africa. Baraka means blessing in swahili also majority of kenyans are christians thats 80% while muslims are just 20%... if you have to write is better you do a good research koz many of us who are reading know better than what you are saying... research well please

This is sad that nobody cares about this country anymore if OBAMA becomes president we will DIE.. other countries will attack us...DID YOU KNOW that obama doesn't put his hand over his heart when we do the pledge.... He went to school with the people that attacked the twin towers on 9/11... he just became christian two months before the election.... and did you know that muslims want to tear us apart from the inside out and here is there way OBAMA... what is this world coming too....? if OBAMA wins we dont care about this country anymore....

I think its funny and somewhat absurd to even consider voting for some one with hussein or obama. Didnt we just hang a Hussein. And aren't we still on the lookout for a mr osama. I really find it hard to believe that this guy running for presidency is some sort of name coincidents. Nostradamus said in his prophesies that after the attacks of 911 a great nation will be brought down from within. You yell me a better way for destruction from within, that to have a bread from birth terrorist for a president. Sorry but ill vote elsewhere. Oh and also sorry for any typos im typing this on my iphone. Ciao guys

I am Canadian, yet I follow American politics very closely- almost as much as Canadian politics.
I have done a lot of research on Obama lately, as he seems rather suspicious to me. Now I don't know about you, but his past seems very.. troubling to me. I think it is important for voters to do a little background research first.. and anyone could see that this is more than a little sketchy. There are rumours which people discredit, then others confirm. How do we know what is true anymore? We don't, but we need to realize... that he could be a fake.
For instance: he supports gay rights, gay adoption, etc. but OPPOSES gay marriage. In an interview with the Chicago Daily Tribune, Obama said, "I'm a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman." I agree, as I am a Conservative Christian.. but as a Christian, how can he support the homosexual lifestyle but use his beliefs as an excuse for gay marriage when the Bible is SO clearly against homosexuality? He appears sketchy to me. I think he's trouble and I also think he has a hidden agenda, but that's my humble opinion.

BTW, Kenya may be considered 88.5% Christian from 2003 surveys, but 25.9% is catholic, where 62.6% is Protestant... 7.0% is muslim.

So what is Obama s Christian name?
Anybody knows?

Pastorius said...

He doesn't have a Christian name. Barack Obama is his name. That's it.

Frankly, the reason we don't know more about this guy is because the media in the USA is forcing him down our throats, NONE of them are doing hard hitting stories on him like they do on Hillary, NONE of them ask him the tough questions--none of them embarass him on national TV like they did Hillary by saying things like "you are very unpopular", etc
that is what makes me suspicious of him, the entire media is giving him a real softball approach for the highest job in this country, indeed, maybe even the world. He has NO qualifications for the job as far as I can see!
And what does he do that is "Presidential", well, he whines that the Clintons are picking on him...this is the guy the "free media" wants to annoint king of the USA!
PS: I am not a Hillary supporter either)

I believe in freedom of choice but Obama has me fearful. I have lived in Moslem countries and am now in Asia. I am a US Citizen.
I have an English Koran. I do not know what is wrong with our media. The questions about the Moslam/Islam issue needs to be brought out by Obama (if he is sincerely a truthful candidate) or the media. He was one of three presidential candidates that voted to change our official language in the USA from English. I do not know why this isn't being brought out. I read an article about him being Church of Christ and it did not say he was only a member of the Church of Christ two months before the election process started. Why even take a chance on what he says, a Moslem is a Moslem. It scares me to death that he may be elected and in the swearing in ceremony he comes in with Moslem clothes on and his wife comes veiled with a Burka. What do we do then? Please press the media to do full investigations on this. Write your congressman, newspapers, we need to know the answers before it is too late..............why does he not place his hand on his heart when the Pledge of Allegiance is said or the Star Spangled Banner is played. Have people lost their minds? Does he want to be sworn in with his hand on the Koran.......... maybe so.

FINALLY!!! Someone who is finally asking the tough questions about Obama. I also ask myself, who is this man? Where did he come from? Apart from Michelle and the girls, who is his family? Where is his family????? Hillary can't even sneeze without being attacked and critized. I can't believe people in this country are falling for a smooth talking, good looking guy who is all talk and absolutely no substance. He chants CHANGE. Ok, how does he plan to implement this change? What is his plan of action, are his strategies, what tactics will he use to make this change come about? These are tough questions any professional has to answer when going for a job interview. I go to church for inspiration, I don't need Obama.

I would like for someone to tell me how is it that Obama could calmly state that he was against the Iraq war and then fail to make a difference. I keep reading what a strong person he is but yet, what exactly did he do to stop the war. I mean Take a look at Cindy Shehan (sic), she camped out on Bush's front lawn. How can he be any good for the nation when he failed too attempt to stop the war? Someone explain this please!

Anonymous said...

Don't know if Obama's a part of the terrorist groups or not because there are so many questions left unanswered about him. So many things that he says about his family that aren't true. Anyone who's done even the most cursory web check on Obama's life would instantly understand that it doesn't really add up. Starting with his polygamist father with the three wives. He reminds me of a cult leader very charismatic, telling the people what they need and wants to hear.
He talks about family values, but he tells Jay Leno, that he doesn't even live with his wife and family because of his work. Barack Obama is a creation of the media, he offers no experience on the national stage to be able to run this country, it's an illusion, he's the ventriloquist and the media, along with people on his band wagon are the dummy's.
The people need to rethink why they want Obama to be president.

The answer is socialism. But only if the question is:

"What's the fastest way to impoverish, enslave and destroy people?"

i dont know what the problem is with u all,as obama is;whatever he is muslim or christian,he need not to be ashamed on any fantacy or reality about his past, but he is the one who wants to work for america and amaricans so we must not put obstacles to his way and let him come to rule and rightly put the things on the path.....thanks... bushee

You mean, rule and rightly put things according to the will of Allah?

You're not helping your cause, dummy.

you're preaching to the choir .. i was a former obama supporter but then learned a month or so ago on my own about his islamic background, then about his activities in kenya, and did a complete 180 in my view of him. i was shocked actually. to 'give him the benefit of the doubt' is not permissible for someone aspiring the highest office in the land, expecially post-911. so i'm digging deep until i find the truth, which i think i already am.

i have a blog here:

and a few facebook discussion groups here:

feel free to contribute.

the wisest thing to do is to be 'better safe than sorry' in deciphering truth about obama. it's the democratic process in this country to prove a candidate, as opposed to just letting someone talk his or her way into the white house, which i believe he's trying to do. if americans are going to be that stupid, then we will get what we vote for. it's scary how many young americans don't do their homework about obama, and are swoon by speeches alone. in my mind, the biggest red flag about obama is his support (and he actually campaigned for) raila odinga of kenya. even though obama's visit was in august of 2006, and odinga signed the agreement with the islamic community there (to virtually hand over the kenyan government to islamic sharia law in 'muslim-declared' regions of kenya, were he to be elected), chances are obama knew way before 2007 what was going down in kenya. for one, he has a very close relationship with raila odinga. secondly, they are family. thirdly, as obama supporters are keen to point out, barack obama is sharp, on top of things, politically astute, and not in the dark about politics right? after all, he's a harvard law school graduate. so, it's unlikely he was unaware of the odinga-islamic community talks. (and by the way, it's unlikely he was unaware of rev. wright's views as well .. come on now). the question is then .. WHY DOES OBAMA SUPPORT RAILA ODINGA OF KENYA? could you imagine senator mccain in kenya doing such things? or senator clinton? never.

i cherish the great american patriots of our past, men who did great things because they lived that way privately too. one of them once said: "you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time", and that was abraham lincoln, "who walked six miles to return three cents to a customer he’d unintentionally overcharged while working as a clerk in a dry goods store." ( source: ).

as i wrote in one of my facebook posts:

"we have to be extremely vigilant in maintaining our freedom. sometimes the most dangerous enemies of a free society are those who try to 'fly under the radar' - the unseen activities not well known about, or given a lot of press. also, a free society is not eroded by huge events, but by little events, drip by drip so-to-speak of water leaking out of a barrel, until sooner or later the barrel is empty. this is what extremist islam knows, and will take african countries little by little instead of in big chunks."

questioning barack obama's islamic sentiments is one thing, but then observing his support of odinga in kenya is a huge red flag. i'm extremely uncomfortable with barack obama. we need to resist him every step of the way and give our support to proven patriots who have the experience and dear love for our country as senators mccain and clinton have. a lot of americans will breath a sigh of relief if either one of them is elected in the end. we don't need 'hope and change' in any way, shape or form at all. AMERICA ALREADY REPRESENTS HOPE AND CHANGE. the whole world looks to us as a standard of freedom, and strength, and wealth, despite the flaws we have. the statue of liberty, remember? all we need to do is MAINTAIN what we have, not radically depart from it, as obama preaches.

For those who want to know about crossing your heart,and the flag.Also the lapel! Lets get down to the truth.Also some of you so-called Christians,get your Bible out.You are not suppose to swear on anything,including the pledge of allegiance.The US flag can not talk,hear,or see.So do you think what you are saying could be what you would call an idol!Think before you talk,or Pray before you speak.The word Barack means lighting.His name Barack is in the King James Bible.A let of this talking is really out of fear,because the color of his skin.When you have had control of a nation for so long you become afraid.I sure hope most of the Blacks have forgiven the Whites for what they have done,and still doing sneakly.The world belongs to GOD not man.As people we claim what is not OURS.

Anonymous said...

Listen, this isn't fear about the color of his skin. This is fear about the questions he will not answer. Knowing his background, where he has been, what he as been doing, and what his beliefs are, is IMPORTANT! He's had too many close relationships with too many radicals, to not address those issues. There may be a rational answer for who purchased his house, why he was working for a domestic terrorist, and who is really funding his campaign. By refusing to answer the allegations or addressing the concerns, he comes across as having something to hide. That alone SCARES me more than anything else. You can't have all of these ties to radical extremest without there being some sort of pattern established. It's just too much of a coincidence.

Anonymous said...

so agree- the ones who seem the most liberal may actually be a lie- our rights and constitution are at risk here- and awareness is necessary at this time- obama may say the right things- and do like his statements- but are they too much to our liking and just a bunch of BS?

“OBAMA a part of OSAMA hidden agenda” Can be This Possible ?

This question has rise in my mind with some of below questions and points.

1) OSAMA can't do any direct fight with USA so OSAMA is going to try with indirect or hidden way fight
2) As a part of hidden fight he is definitely thinking to control USA politics

I am sure every one agree with above this two point

Now what would be the ideal way to control this?

OSAMA need a person…

Who do not have long track record, New to politics.
Need such a person who is not conservative Christian
A person who can claim that he is Christian though he may not pure Christian
A person who good at speech and able to create mass hysteria

(If you start to think u can get much more points too)

Let look at Obama

Who do not have long track record, New to politics. >>>> True

Need such a person who is not conservative Christian >>>> True

A person who can claim that he is Christian though he may not pure >>>> True

A person who good at speech and able to create mass hysteria >>>> True

Let me analyze some doubtful point from OBAMA side

Don’t allow his any family member to speak to a press like his grand mother, aunt, uncle
Mass amount of bogus donor ( As OSAMA or OSAMA supporter can’t send the fund directly so may be this trick)
Relation with some anti-socialist or terror supporter group
Don’t have much track record so difficult to judge his believes and philosophy
Too much cool like cold blooded killer

(If you start to think u can get much more points too)

If something this will true…than I can’t think what would be the America in next 4 years….

( Pl forgive me as I am not good at English)

I am looking for more inputs on this....

So many my friends tell me I am wrong... "This is not possible"

My question is Did any one think 9/11 possible in USA?

Anonymous said...

I am glad to see so many of you Americans feel the same way I do about Obama. He is not what he says
he is. He is a dangerous man and he does have a secret agenda. We will be in trouble if he pulls off this election. I feel like alot of people are like lambs to the slaughter and they are happy with it. Why won't they do some research? The so-called movie stars that back Obama are crazy, they couldn't be famous without all of us, I go to alot of movies, buying a ticket. I think they have alot of pull with people that only think of what is fashionable. Obama is counting on that for sure.
This is the count down now as all the polls are closing and we will know the outcome very shortly. God bless us and our great country.
