(HONOLULU)(November 1, 2008) Internet powerhouse Andy Martin has ignited a firestorm in Hawai’i over Barack Obama’s bogus “original” birth certificate. Martin won a stunning victory Friday afternoon (October 31st) when the State of Hawai’i backed his assertion that there was an original, “typewritten, 1961” birth certificate, called a “Certificate of Live Birth” or “COLB” in Hawai’i, that no one has previously seen. Hawai’i officials retrieved and examined the document after Martin filed a lawsuit seeking access to the historic 1961 original.

Obama has falsely claimed to have placed the “original” on the Internet. has falsely claimed to have seen this document and posted it on the Internet; that is not true. CNN has falsely ridiculed Martin.

Hawai’i officials have now refuted Obama’s false assertion.

Martin’s victory in Honolulu will roil the final weekend of the presidential campaign. Internet chatter is expected to explode as the issue moves to the front page over Saturday and Sunday. Swing voters may be swayed by the exposure that Obama has brazenly been lying to the American people. “We just lobbed a grenade into the final weekend of the presidential campaign,” says Andy.

“I am ecstatic. I called Obama a liar. I called ‘’ I said CNN was sloppy and lazy and wrong. And I was right. The State of Hawai’i has now backed me up. Whew. I knew I was right, but I feel a lot more comfortable knowing that I have started to get the machinery moving in state government. The original document is now obviously protected and safe from any tampering by Obama.

“My lawsuit started a firestorm in Hawai’i. The circuit judge has set a hearing for November 18th (a report in the Honolulu Advertiser for November 1st for an earlier hearing date of November 7th is inaccurate; that date was cancelled).

“CNN also has egg on its face, because, once again, Hawai’i backs my contention that the original document has never surfaced in public. CNN tried to demean me by contradicting my accurate claim.

“Now Obama, and CNN have been exposed as liars. I said there was a ‘secret,’ original, typewritten birth certificate that had never been disclosed, and that document was the original COLB, not the phony ‘original’ that CNN placed before its viewers.

“Why would Hawai’i officials review the vault document at the Eleventh Hour if my lawsuit wasn’t causing a furor in Hawai’i state government? Why? The Friday before the election?

“Mine is the only logical, rational, properly prepared lawsuit that has been filed to open Obama’s secret records. I sued in the proper state in the proper court against the proper officials for the proper remedy. And they are responding properly. The judge has properly, although not as quickly as I would have preferred, set a hearing to consider my claims. I have not filed outrageous or exaggerated pleadings.

“I merely sought access to a document based on its scholarly and news value and because I had been tipped by my sources inside state government that Obama was lying. My network of informants within state government helps me and guides me. Others filed lawsuits outside Hawai’i that have either been dismissed or discredited. My ‘little engine that could’ is chugging along.

“I have an outstanding record of high-profile public interest litigation, as recognized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court five years ago when they allowed me to represent a U. S. Marine in a landmark lawsuit.” See and

In a Honolulu news conference on October 22nd Martin disclosed that Frank Marshall Davis was the biological father of Barack Obama, not Barack Obama senior. The Obama campaign has not denied Martin’s claim.

“Over the past month I have been on combat patrol from coast to coast for the truth and for the United States Constitution,” says Andy. “I have not the slightest link to John McCain. I am connected to the Constitution and nothing else. I have waged relentless war against Barack Obama’s lies. And on the eve of the final weekend in the presidential campaign Hawai’i government has backed me by confirming that officials have examined the original, typewritten 1961 document, and confirmed that the document released by the Obama campaign was a facsimile, not the original.

“I have won a major victory: I proved Obama was lying about what he had posed on the Internet and falsely portrayed as ‘the original.’ ‘Barry, we caught you with your pants down. We caught you lying, again.

“Saturday it will be my pleasure to return home to Chicago after one of the most successful independent political battle operations in media history, to wage the final weekend of war for the truth and Constitution and against the Daley Machine and Obama Gang. I have successfully been exposing and fighting Daley Family corruption for over forty years. Barry Obama is part of the second generation Daley Machine. He is a member in good standing of this criminal operation.

“The Machine doesn’t like me. But I have a history of coming up with the truth, and a history of embarrassing powerful people. In retaliation, they try to smear me. The disclosure that Hawai’i officials have examined the true original COLB, and that Obama lied to the American people by falsely claiming he had posted the original 1961 document, is going to spread like wildfire between Saturday and Tuesday night.

“This election is bizarre because the presidential candidate of the Democratic Party, the Party’s leader, is from the Daley Machine in Chicago. And the leader of the Internet Army opposing Obama and working to defeat him and the Daley Machine is also from Chicago. My Senator would be proud.

Martin is expected to announce Saturday that he is suing Fox News as well as the New York Times, for defamation of character. The lawsuit will be released Monday morning.

“For Fox News to treat me as they did is beneath contempt,” says Martin. “I am respected around the world for accuracy, honesty and integrity. We know the New York Times is a corrupt media operation. But Fox News? Well, Ruppert Murdock may want to kow’tow to Barack Obama, but I will not kow’tow to Ruppert Murdock. The crass executives deserve to be sued for their malicious attacks on me. Someone ought to stand up for me: I helped expose Bill Ayers and Khalid Al-Mansour. A slimy ‘vice president’ that probably never worked a case or a story had the nerve to demean me. What a compete corporate moron.

“How dare these media imposters and blowhards smear me with lies, when I have worked tirelessly to expose the truth about Barack Obama—and succeeded,” Martin will charge.

“I’ll be happy to face the Fox jerk, Vice President Bill Shine, in court and defend my good name against Obama’s mud merchants, the New York Times and Ruppert Murdock. Ruppert Murdock’s daughter is backing Obama, for Chrissake.

“I also plan Saturday to thank Dr. Chiyome Fukino for confirming my factual allegation that there was/is an original, typewritten 1961 ‘vault’ COLB that has not been made public and that the true ‘original’ COLB is in official files. That confirmation makes Barack Obama a liar, on the last weekend of the campaign. Thank you, doctor.

“Now you know why Obama and Axelrod and Gibbs call me the ‘Internet Powerhouse’ that can’t be stopped. Barack Obama will be bleeding through election night because of this massive lie exposed on the eve of their election. I work for the American people, not John McCain or the Republican Party. Friday, truth arrived in Honolulu, and in the remaining 100 hours that truth is going to be spread from coast-to-coast.

“Obama lied.”

Martin lands in Chicago at noon, and will proceed to his office, for an afternoon news conference.

Martin is also soliciting financial support to fund his litigation in Hawai’i.

    I see. This is important. I do not hate Obama, but to lie about one’s birth certificate is just wrong. Why can’t a person just obey the laws of the land? It is as simple as that, but I guess not everyone thinks like that and tries to go around the system. I do not agree with Obama, never have except on a few issues.

    I would respect Obama more if he told the truth, that is all I really want. I will stop here, I wish not to rant.

    Obama should show his actual hospital registered birth certificate, whereever the hospital. Whether it’s from the hospital in Hawaii Obama says he was born in, or the one that his sister says he was born in, or the one in Kenya, where his grandmother says he was born in. Just show it. What are you hiding?

    Perhaps he was born in all three. Why not? He is ‘The One’ after all.

    I don’t understand all the trumpet playing of Andy Martin however. What has he actually accomplished?

  3. A real Hawaiian birth certificate from 1963

    Obama’s forged version of his 1961 birth certificate

  4. Even assuming the State of Hawaii holds an ‘original’ Birth Certificate stating BO was born in HI, this by itself fails to document BO is a natural born citizen. Again, if Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian national adopted BO then, his Birth Certificate in HI would have been replaced to reflect that 1) he was born in HI; and 2) Lolo Soetoro is his birth father. And if Lolo Soetoro is listed as his birth father on his Hawaiian Birth Certificate then, this means that, BO was a citizen of Indonesia, as already indicated by circumstantial evidence including his school registration, showing the name Barry Soetoro; and, assuming he is in this country legally, he is a naturalized citizen. Naturalized citizens are ineligible for POTUS.

    Lawsuits brought based on the issue of BO’s Constitutional eligibility for POTUS were dismissed based on procedural issues; the issue of his eligibility has never been considered. (Perhaps this is why Attorney Greta van Susteren, on FOX News, has now proposed that all of the candidates for POTUS and VPOTUS produce their birth certificates.)

    This sounds like the nut who was convinced that the government had implanted a radio in his head to control him, and so a friend took him to have an MRI, which naturally showed that there was no radio.

    But the nut was not convinced. He said “Ah! But can you prove that that is really an MRI of me?” So they called in the MRI operator, who certified that that MRI was the MRI of the nut. But the nut was still not convinced. He said: “He certifies that that MRI is an MRI of me. But how do we know that he is not working for the government?”

    In your case you are saying that even though the officials in Hawaii, who have no reason to lie, have given the impression that they have evidence that Obama is a naturally-born USA citizen, they are misleading us in some way. They are deliberately misleading us.

    You are saying that the officials in Hawaii, having seen Obama’s file and from its contents knowing that Obama was either (1) not born in the USA, or (2) has legally become a citizen of another country at a later date (which is a more complicated issue. It is probably legally impossible for a natural born child to lose his citzenship, no matter what his parents may have done) have issued a statement implying that there is nothing wrong with his claim to be a natural born US citizen.

    The obvious question is why?

    To be sure, their statement was carefully written. (So what. Why should it have been sloppy?)

    But why was it carefully written in Obama’s favor? Are these two officials Democrats? (Probably not. They were appointed by a Republican governor.)

    Moreover, if it subsequently turns out that Obama was not born in Hawaii or had something in his file along the lines of losing his citizenship, then they, who had said that there was nothing wrong, would be subject to criticism at the very least. They could be accused of being part of a conspiracy, or of a fraud, and at the least they would not get a job in a Republican administration again. So why would they do it?

    Thus the officials had absolutely no reason to lie about what they saw in Obama’s file. And they had absolutely no reason to MISLEAD by issuing a statement that implies they saw something more in Obamas file, when all that they saw was the “certificate of live birth.” Their statement implies that they saw something that confirms the certificate of live birth. In fact, they said that they saw his birth certificate.

    All of which indicates beyond a reasonable doubt that Obama was born in Hawaii. Moreover, all the allegations that he was born in Kenya now look pretty empty, since the guys who claimed to have evidence proving that Obama was born in Kenya have never released the evidence.

    So, why won’t Obama release his birth certificate?

    Possibly because it shows that his mother and father were not married.

    That is embarassing, but it is not a constitutional grounds for barring someone for being president. Maybe some people would vote against a bastard. Others would vote for him anyway. In any case, that is Obama’s decision to make. You are welcome to vote against him because you feel that he is not a citizen, or because he is a bastard, or because you don’t agree with his policies, or because he was associated with terrorists.

    But you could do that anyway. The content of the files and the fact that Obama did not release them does not change the situation.

    What has changed? The constitutional issue over whether Obama was born in the USA. That is required in the Constitution. The Hawaii officials have confirmed that he was born in the USA. He is therefore eligible to be president.

    Now all the issues stemming from the discussion of whether Obama lost USA citizenship after he was born in Hawaii, by being naturalized in another country, are all extremely complicated and debatable.

    The Constitution itself does not say that a person with dual nationality cannot be president. It only says that:

    No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.

    The US Supreme Court has had many rulings over the years on the subject of whether a US citizen can lose his citizenship by having dual citizenship or swearing an oath to a foreign power or voting in a foreign election. The gist is that it is pretty hard to lose your USA citizenship and a child almost certainly could not. See:

    In particular, see Perkins v Elg (1939)

    Which held: “Marie Elizabeth Elg was born in the US to Swedish parents, who took her back with them to Sweden when she was a baby. Shortly after her 21st birthday, she obtained a US passport and returned to the US.

    Some years later, the US government attempted to deport her on the grounds that when her parents had taken her to live in Sweden, she had become a Swedish citizen (under Swedish law), and as a result had lost her US citizenship. It was argued that an 1869 citizenship treaty between the US and Sweden, providing for the orderly transfer of citizenship by immigrants, called for loss of US citizenship following Swedish naturalization. This was one of the so-called “Bancroft Treaties” enacted between the US and numerous other countries between 1868 and 1937.

    The Supreme Court ruled, unanimously, that the actions of Elg’s parents in obtaining Swedish citizenship for their daughter could not prevent her from reclaiming US citizenship and returning to the US as an adult, provided she did so within a reasonable time after reaching adulthood.

    The Elg case is not, strictly speaking, a dual citizenship case, since the court’s assumption was that once Elg had reached adulthood, she had the right to choose US citizenship instead of (not in addition to) Swedish citizenship — i.e., that this right had not been taken away from her by actions her parents had taken when she was a child.”

    Getting back to the file in the Hawaii government. I think it is extremely unlikely that it has anything about Obama’s alleged Indonesian citizenship or change of name in it. That is not the purpose of a birth certificate file.

    First of all, let me tell you.. ALL ORIGIONAL BIRTH CERTIFICATES are kept in the records and NEVER leave the premises. Anyone can get a COPY of their own ORIGIONAL certificate, but the ORIGIONAL ONE NEVER leaves the building..It stays there.. NO ONE can even get a COPY of the ORIGIONAL certificate, except the person whose birth it represents (such as Obama) or anyone authorised according to the rules of the state.. All certificates are sealed to protect them from unauthorised peoples access ..Those officials who retieved the certicate to assess it were NOT authorised to retrieve it unless Obama or someone in authority, according to Hawaii law, so ordered it..

  7. smrstrauss permalink

    Re: “.Those officials who retieved the certicate to assess it were NOT authorised to retrieve it unless Obama or someone in authority, according to Hawaii law, so ordered it..”

    I do not recall discussing this. You raise the point that what the officials did in Hawaii may have been illegal. I discussed whether what they said was true.

    If it is indeed illegal, that is up to Hawaii to deal with. If it was authorized buy Obama, of course it is not illegal. If it was not authorized by Obama, I doubt that he will press a lawsuit against them.

    IF what they said about the records was a lie, that was illegal in being a fraud.

    So it seems to me that the key question is whether they were telling the truth.

    Since they had much to lose and little to gain by lying, I think it highly likely that they were telling the truth.

    That would mean that there is evidence that Obama was born in Hawaii. Conversely, there is no evidence that he was born anywhere else.

    Now we can discuss issues and not the fantasy that Obama was born in Kenya.

  8. What the heck is wrong with you people if it shows he was not bron here in America he can not be the president of the USA dam I only went to the 5th grade and I know that the reason he dosent want you to see it is cause he cant run if proven.
    On top of it I just seen a news video showing his aunt has been in the USA for 4 years illegally and he says he knew nothing about it wake up people you are trying to vote in another Saddan Hussein and that is what is going to happen if he gets in you will lose everything God I feel sorry for you I’ve seen it from day one you people are not hearing what he’s not saying I liked him till I heard him say he will disarm America and stop sending money to to our troops For God’s sake our men and women are over there trying to keep you safe from harm and keep ypu free and you want this man in there because if he gets in you will lose that freedom you so much injoy so wake up befor its too late

    I think is a stretch to say he lied about his birth certificate. When one is legally required to produce a birth certificate, the certificate of live birth with raised seal and stamp is considered prima facie evidence even in court. He provided what was sent to him when he applied for it. The pictures on his website don’t show the stamp and impress because they were appied to the back of the document. This is apparent in the images of it on

    If someone asks you for a document and you have provided the legal copy you have, what can you do to give more than what you have? I think crying “liar, liar” will not help you see what you want to see. Perhaps this legal inquisition of the source can help you find what you want. I hope when you finally see it, all your questions are answered.
    What will you do then? Will you apologize for all the noise you have made?

    Just as an aside, what would happen if someone was not actually born in a hospital, but rather in a house or in a car? There have been instances, especially in the past when people were born and the registration of birth did not happen for some time afterward. If you are born in a car going down the road, or in an airplane in the air, or in a launched boat are you not officially born with specific US latitude and longitude? What if someone was born of a US citizen in the space station? Would they be ineligible to one day be US President?
