Barack Obama’s campaign unleashes economic terrorism against Obama author Andy Martin

October 9, 2008

Martin says Obama has passed from dirty politics to criminal behavior, “but who ever said Chicago was clean? Obama has been involved with criminals and criminal activity all of his life. Read my book, Obama: The Man behind The Mask.”

Obama campaign begins terrorizing media to silence Andy Martin

Obama threatens broadcast organizations that interview Martin

“Don’t say you weren’t warned,” says Andy

“The Obama campaign has become unhinged. We wounded them with the truth,” Martin believes

“Factually Correct, Not
Politically Correct”







(NEW YORK)(October 8, 2008) “We learned today that the Obama campaign is threatening economic retaliation against news organizations that communicate with me,” Andy Martin stated. “This is an extension of the terrorist tactics that were directed at WGN-AM in Chicago for featuring critics. We are only a few steps away from a brown-shirted Hitler-style bully boy operation. America: the warning lights are on.”

Here is the first threatening e-mail:

First Name:Gary
Last Name:Riggin

Enter Comments:Mr. Freedman, I am writing to ask you to end your
association with WCBM radio. This morning Sean and Frank’s guest was the
vicious anti-Semitic Andy Martin. Martin once called a judge “a crooked
slimy Jew”. I will be happy to spread the word to my friends and family.
Sincerely, Gary Riggin

(A copy of the actual forwarded e-mail is available on request.)

“Obama, of course, is testing the media,” Martin continues. “I am the guinea pig. He feels if he successfully uses economic terrorism against me, he can go onto bigger targets and climb the media food chain. If I were Stanley Kurtz I would be worried. Likewise Jerome Corsi. Likewise Sean Hannity.

“Using 25 year-old accusations which have been debunked to terrorize businesses has a name: McCarthyism. After today, no one can pretend they do not know what is in store for the United States if Barack Obama is elected. A Mugabe-style gang will be running the federal government.

“Earlier today I announced I would be sending defamation notices to Barack Obama, Bob Gibbs, NBC News and Keith Olbermann. Those notices were in the process of being drafted when Obama unleashed his economic terrorists. I had originally planned a simple defamation lawsuit against Obama. I will be expanding my accusations to include civil racketeering, or ‘civil RICO.’ Threatening people with economic harm if they speak to other people is defined in the federal criminal code as Extortion.

“I wrote the book on RICO, se I repeat what I said earlier today: I am unpopular in the judicial system not because I am corrupt but because I am too honest. I am unpopular because I have successfully exposed corruption, which in Chicago also includes media toadies to crooked politicians such as the Tribune’s Rick Pearson.

“By threatening media, Obama has morphed from nasty smears and McCarthyism to criminal activity. Threatening media with economic retaliation for interviewing me is a crime. Where did this type of terrorism start? Why in Bill Ayers’ Venezuela, of course. Hugo, we hardly knew ye (but then Obama has never known anyone; they just write him $100 million checks).

“The circumstances in Connecticut, where I was falsely accused of anti-Semitism, were similar. I exposed a cooked judge, Jose Cabranes, and a cabal he was using to loot a bankruptcy estate. Cabranes retaliated by unleashing his own criminal activity. Cabranes also sucked Judge Jon O Newman into the cesspool. Both men were rejected for the Supreme Court by President Clinton because of their involvement with this criminal activity. And Obama wants to make me the bad guy? (In an earlier column I gave the name of a Connecticut attorney who can comment on these claims.)

“I will also be contacting Sam Zell in a few minutes to warn him his minions at the Tribune are now trying to use a reporter in Los Angeles to smear me because the Tribune is a defendant in pending lawsuits and faces additional litigation. Deception and deceptive activity is always probative of intent. Sam Zell’s ‘front’ won’t succeed. Let Rick Pearson shovel his own crap at the Tribune.

“I was interviewed by someone from the L. A. Times today who said Fox News should have told viewers that I was involved in a controversy a quarter of a century ago—even though I was innocent. That is a classic definition of McCarthyism, smearing people with irrelevant accusations.

“But the larger question is why has the L. A. Times, as a proxy for the Chicago Tribune, focused on me and Sean Hannity? Why has Obama’s ‘communications’ man Gibbs attacked Hannity and attacked me? Did I bomb buildings? No. Ayers did. But Obama/Gibbs suggests I am toxic and Ayers is not. Is Obama is trying to suggest that bombing the Capitol or Pentagon is equivalent to being a litigant in a controversial lawsuit, or being a corruption fighter and unpopular consumer champion in Chicago? Hello? You begin to see how desperate Ms. Gibbs is to discredit me. He can’t even come up with a logical explanation for his hysteria.

“The big picture begins to evolve. We have a city, Chicago, led by a crook whose family has looted the municipality for over half a century. Richie Daley says a mad bomber is a respected citizen, and a sleazy pol from Chicago should be president. Chicago: the upside-down city. Barack Obama has been a lifelong participant in the Daley Machine. He wants to bring the Daley Machine to Washington, the same way he moved the Democratic Party from Washington to the Daley machine in Chicago.

“David Axelrod has known of me for over thirty years. This is with they are scared. Especially with me headed for Honolulu with a fat notebook of sources and issues. They know I have wounded them, and sent them reeling, and like wounded bulls they are now reduced to economic terrorism against broadcasting stations that interview me.

“I have only one question for the mainstream media: who’s next?”

Readers of Obama: The Man Behind The Mask, say the book is still the only gold standard and practical handbook on Barack Obama’s unfitness for the presidency. Buy it.
Book orders: Immediate shipment from or the publisher now available.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I recently decided to oppose Barack Obama’s election and became Executive Director of The Stop Obama Coalition, By default, I became the national leader of the anti-Obama movement. I am not acting as either a Democrat or Republican. I have had no contact whatsoever with the McCain Campaign. I am not a member of any political organization. The views expressed are entirely independent. I am acting as an American citizen who sincerely believes Obama is not the man we need in the Oval Office. We are going to run a very dynamic and aggressive campaign against Obama. I will continue to write my news and opinion columns for /s/ Andy Martin
URGENT APPEAL: The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama is raising money to fight Barack Obama. Please give generously up to the maximum of $100. Our ability to fight and defeat Barack Obama is directly dependent on the generosity of every American.”
The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama limits itself to $100 maximum contributions; there are no bundlers, fat cats or illegal contributions. Obama is opposed to everything America stands for,” says Executive Director Andy Martin. “But while Obama has raised more than a third of a BILLION dollars, his opponents have raised virtually nothing. We can’t just sit back and expect John McCain to do the job all alone. Americans can either contribute now, or pay later. If we do not succeed, Obama will.”
