Obama author and U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin (“Obama: The Man Behind The Mask”) was the first investigator to expose the serious questions about Barack Obama’s missing 1961 birth certificate. Now, so-called mainstream media such as NBC, MSNBC and CNN are creating a “firestorm” about public outrage at Obama’s unwillingness to document his birth. Martin has petitions pending in the Hawai’i Supreme Court and trial courts seeking access to the original 1961 Obama certificate. “We are going to make Obama show us his original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate,” Martin says. “The jokers in Hawai’i who are seeking to impose a veil of secrecy on America’s historic documents are doomed to failure.”

(CHICAGO)(July 22, 2009) For the past five years, Barack Obama and I have been locked in a struggle over my efforts to discover his true identity. I want the facts. He wants to hide the truth about himself. It’s that simple.
I wrote a book, “Obama: The Man Behind The Mask,” that details my earlier efforts. (The book leaves off in June, 2008).
We still do not know who Barack Obama is. What we do know is that whoever he is, he lied to the American people. Today he is violating all of the “promises” he made to voters.
Over the past several months I have done columns at ContrarianCommentary.com detailing how the “birther” movement is on the brink of exploding into the mainstream. Now it’s happened.
I predicted, correctly as it turns out, that as Obama’s polls went down, questions about his birth certificate would go up. It's all there in our earlier writing.
Tuesday night David Shuster, who is guest ghosting on MSNBC’s Countdown, derided the “birth certificate conspiracy.” Shuster had a guest, Chris Kofinis, suggest that anyone who is concerned about Obama’s origins, is a “wing nut.”
Sadly, the wing nuts were Shuster and Kofinis, who admitted and documented their own ignorance on national television.
Barack Obama has never released or authorized the release of his original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate. Why? What is he hiding? Good question.
I have a lawsuit pending, currently in both the Hawai’i Supreme Court and circuit court (Martin v. Lingle), seeking to pry loose Obama's archival information. Hawai’i is resisting release. Go to my blogs (see below), pick one, and you can read the Hawai’i Supreme court documents.
Tuesday night Rachel Maddow also certified on MSNBC that the birth certificate had gone “mainstream." We are winning; liberals are losing.
But Maddow also misled her viewers and demonstrated her ignorance of the birth certificate issue. Maddow used Dave Weigel, another leftist clown who pretends to be a journalist, to attack “birthers.”
Maddow, Shuster and the other lefties are starting to panic. "Birther power” is “surging.” Leftist power is already on the wane.
Maddow tried to make fun of CNN’s Lou Dobbs and called Dobbs a “birther.” While Dobbs does not fully understand the birth certificate controversy, and he has sought advice from people who confuse, not clarify, the matter, Dobbs is on the right track. Maddow is not.
Liberals love conspiracy theories. They suggest that anyone questioning Obama’s origins is involved in a “conspiracy.” That is simply not true. I did not start a conspiracy. I started a movement seeking to demand the facts about Obama's origins and college years. For the past five years I have been searching for the truth and trying to find out the facts about Obama’s origins and early life. I am not a part of any conspiracy.
I am engaged in basic historical inquiry about who Obama is, where he was born, where he went to college. Don't we know the detailed life history of every other president?
What are the undisputed facts? What are the facts that the liberal, pro-Obama mainstream media do not want you to know? The facts are relatively simple and straightforward.
1. The lawsuit I filed in October, 2008 in Honolulu pried loose the admission by the Hawai’i Department of Health that they had an original 1961 birth certificate.
2. Obama claims to have been born in Hawai'i. In 1961, Hawai’i used typewritten records. Similar certificates have been posted on the Internet so it is not difficult to determine what the blank form looked like in 1961 when Obama was born.
3. Hawai’i has recently computerized some of its archival records. The “birth certificate” that Obama posted on the Internet is not a copy of his original, typewritten 1961 document. Rather, he posted a computer generated facsimile of some information contained in a Hawai'i state computer data base. The “certificate” posted by Obama bears no connection to the original 1961 document.
4. What is missing from Obama’s laser-printed “certificate?” The computer-generated reproduction contains considerably less detail. Even in 2009 there has been a raging controversy over where Obama was born in Hawai'i. Varying and conflicting explanations have been given. Some media listed one hospital; others listed another. The issue has never been resolved. The lack of factual information about Obama is not a “conspiracy.” It is a gap in public knowledge about who Obama really is.
5. We do not know what claims Obama made to Occidental College, Columbia College and Harvard Law School to obtain “affirmative action” admission. Shades of Sonia Sotomayor. Obama refuses to provide access to his college records even though Sotomayor has disclosed hers.
Last year on “Hannity’s America” I exposed Obama’s links to radicals and offered the first connected, coherent time line. Take a look (click on Part Two):
If you don’t believe I created an “anti-Obama” industry, look at Jerome Corsi’s latest effort:
He wrote a book based on my original research as supplemented by Corsi. In fact, Corsi was criticized by Alan Colmes for citing me as a source. Corsi is still working off my research. In his latest story (above) Corsi is just reworking the material I originally presented on Hannity’s America.
Obama’s “socialist revolution?” I predicted that as well, on Hannity’s America. Go to the tape.
For my good efforts to tell the American people the truth about Obama, Fox News’ owner Rupert Murdoch had his munchkin slam me and say he regretted having me as a guest on Hannity’s program. Let no good deed go unpunished.
But, but, but, we continue to search for the truth about Obama, and we are constantly trying to find the facts. No conspiracies. Just facts. Sorry Rachel. You’ll have to pick on another boy.
My appearance on Hannity’s America has gone down in political history as the most controversial and most accurate exposé of Obama during the 2008 election. Take a look and judge for yourself (link above, click on Part Two). They can’t hide the truth. We laid it all out on October 5th, 2008 on the Fox News Channel.
Now you know why the New York Times and mainstream media despise me and do everything they can do disrupt my political activity and discredit my blogging. I am a threat to the liberal cathedra. The biggest threat the conservative movement has produced to date.
If I am elected to the U. S. Senate, I will make it a priority to convene Senate hearings seeking to subpoena Obama’s original college records and original birth records. We need to know who this man really is.
Or, as “Columbo” would say, “Oh, one last question, Mr./Ms. Illinois Republican voter. If Andy Martin can cause this much agitation for liberals as a private journalist and Internet Powerhouse, can you imagine what he could do to the liberal machine in Washington if Andy was serving as U. S. Senator? Can any Republican seriously cast a vote for a weenie like Mark Kirk when they have a chance to elect a U. S. Senator who has been the scourge of Obama for the past five years, and will work to dismember Obama’s socialist schemes if Martin is elected to the Senate?”
Columbo would say, “Case closed. There is only one real Republican candidate running for the U. S. Senate from Illinois. One Republican who has shown he has the chops to take on Obama and his liberal ‘crew’ in Washington. Andy Martin. Do the right thing: ‘Fight Obama: Vote Andy.’”
