FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Republican Presidential candidate Andy Martin comments on the latest “Obama is a Muslim” controversy
Eight years ago  I held a
Monday evening (March 12th] Washington-New York media manipulators were in high dudgeon when a poll of Alabama and Mississippi Republican voters indicated that Republicans still overwhelmingly believed President Obama is a Muslim (see NY Daily News link below).(Question: Why does PPP never poll Democratic Party voters on Obama’s “Muslim issue?” The reason is obvious.)
Last month I announced my annual scholarly symposium on Obama’s origins (see National Conference blog below) and May 1st I leave for my next investigatory trip to
In response to my writing and investigation over the past eight years Obama has relentlessly tried to harass and smear me. Chris Hayes, an obscure
After my bestselling book in 2008 focused continuing attention on Obama’s obscure family history (see book information below) Obama panicked. In a desperate attempt to defeat the “Muslim rumors” (YouTube link below) Obama sent his press secretary Robert Gibbs on national television. Gibbs falsely accused me of being anti-Semitic based on a thirty year-old lawsuit.
Unable to defeat me with his lies, Obama then flew to
I also produced a short film on Obama. You can view it at my campaign web site as well as the site listed below. I think you will find it is an objective presentation.
Recently Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Obama’s “birth certificate” may be a forgery (see link below).
Based on the Public Policy Polling poll I once again find my research on Obama and myself personally near the center of the 2012 presidential election campaign. Fasten your seat belts.
So what are the facts? Let’s strip away the media’s lies and deal only with the facts and the truth. In am only interested in searching for the truth and finding the facts about President Obama (which is precisely why he dislikes me so intensely).
1. The man President Obama claims is his father, Barack Hussein Obama, was a Muslim. President Obama’s putative father was born a Muslim, in
2. Under Muslim theology, religion is transmitted by the father, not the mother. A father’s son automatically becomes a Muslim at birth. President Obama became a Muslim at birth.
4. There is no currently-available documentary record of Obama’s religious activity from the age of 18 until he met and married Michelle Robinson in
5. There is no doubt that Obama attended Trinity United for many years. His membership at Trinity became controversial because of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s controversial sermons.
6. There are all kinds of Christians. I have been an usher at various Episcopal churches for thirty years. Some people I see every week and some people only appear at Christmas and Easter. There is no “one size fits all” for Christianity. If you initially have been baptized.
7. The religion of our presidents has always been observed closely. Some presidents attend church, and some do not.
8. In 2009 Obama said he was going to “look for a church” in
9. While all of the facts surrounding the Obama family’s private life are not public, there have been suggestions he and Michelle do not celebrate Christmas by giving gifts, and that they do celebrate Muslim holidays. Celebrating Muslim events itself is not controversial; President George W. Bush did some of the same.
10. Whether it is true or not that Obama ignores Christian holidays and favors Muslim observances (and that is one of the subjects for our extended Washington, DC conference/symposium on March 30-31), the appearance the public sees in the White House is that Obama is not religious and that he is pro-Muslim in his policies.
11. Public Policy Polling, a Democratic-leaning polling firm, publishes a continuing series of its “Obama-is-a-Muslim” “polls.” PPP published a similar “Muslim” poll about
12. On a political level I like to badger Obama, calling him “Barry” (his original name in
13. Unlike some of Obama’s enemies, who have propounded bizarre and unsubstantiated theories, I have carefully kept to the facts as I have discovered them. My “theories” are carefully labeled separately as theories, and are not presented as facts. Clearly, I am only seeking the truth about Obama, and that seems to drive him mad. Obama seemingly can deal with the lies his opponents concoct; he can’t deal with the truth and the facts I provide.
14. Whether you agree with me or disagree with my views and my research, Obama has undoubtedly gone to great lengths to personally attack me and to besmirch my reputation. Why does he pay so much attention to me? Although the Hannity program on which I appeared became the most controversial TV segment of the 2008 presidential campaign, and Robert Gibbs suggested I was the “center” of the show in his counterattack (both segments below), I was only one of many critics. Obama also orchestrated a front-page attack on me in the New York Times as well as other attacks. Obama’s operatives constantly try to undermine my current “Draft Horse, not Dark Horse” presidential campaign. Why is Obama’s organization obsessed with me?
15. So what’s the bottom line? Is Obama a Muslim? Or is he a Christian? There is no question Obama was born a Muslim. And most people believe he has favored the Muslim religion since moving into the White House. That is the source of the continuing concerns of
