Andy Martin calls for “national disunity”

November 5, 2008

A president who will not release his birth certificate is an illegitimate official, Martin charges. Andy says it’s time for the Republican Party to slim down its playbook, and concentrate on the vital issues where Barack Obama is likely to stumble over the next two years. Martin calls for al “all-American Republican Party” for “all-Americans” with every American welcome and “no outcasts.”

“Factually Correct, Not
Politically Correct”







(CHICAGO)(November 5, 2008) As these notes are finished the winner of the presidential election is Barack Obama. McCain has surrendered.

Senator John McCain spoke graciously, “congratulating” president-elect Obama. But he did not call for “national unity” as the liberal cable TV bobbleheads were demanding.

The sweetness of Obama’s victory will not linger beyond the morning dew. The bitterness Obama will generate in the days ahead will linger for the next four years.

Nine years ago I broadcast an ad that said “George Bush wants to bomb Iraq.” The Bush Brothers, Jeb and George, attacked me. I was the first name on the new president’s enemies list. But I had warned the American people. I knew Bush would be a disaster. I never anticipated just how great a disaster. In 2002 I spoke out and marched against the invasion of Iraq and called it a folly. I was one of the first to report the failures in Baghdad, from Baghdad, where I spent most of 2003.

Today the Bush Dynasty is a shambles, totally defunct. He leaves a legacy of disgrace.

The Bush legacy will be a bitter one, bitter for Republicans because it disrupted and destroyed their party, and bitter for Democrats because their party was misled into electing a Marxist-Leninist who will prove as toxic to Democrats as Bush was to Republicans. I worked in the 89th Congress. I saw President Johnson’s landslide of 1964 reverse itself in 1966. “Change” is coming to America. In 2010. Ultimately, the Bush legacy will not be a lingering one. Bush will be remembered as a decent man who was betrayed by his closest advisers.

The bottom line: I am a Republican, but not a Republican who puts party above national interests, or partisan devotion above the Constitution. I have been a corruption-fighter and reformer since my days at the University of Illinois. I will remain so.

Today I am pleased and proud to be the first name on Barack Obama’s enemies list, and to brand him the “Illegitimate President.”

Senator Obama’s victory is a hollow and illegitimate one.
He won by undermining our democratic institutions and by reintroducing dirty money into presidential campaigns. There can be no accommodation with a president who was elected with hundreds of millions of dollars in clandestine campaign cash.

Today I also become a leader of the loyal opposition that will stand against the policies Senator Obama supported during the campaign. The election may be over. The battle for America is just beginning.

Here is the first draft of our essential, basic truths:

There can be no accommodation with a president who refuses to release his birth certificate and establish his true identity.

I do not congratulate Mr. Obama on his illegitimate victory; I reciprocate his contempt for the American people by being contemptuous of his “victory.” Obama is a pretender to the presidency. Fool us once, Obama, shame on you; fool us twice, shame on us.

If ever there was a time for national disunity, this is that time. Preparations must begin immediately for the inevitable victory in 2010.

There can be no accommodation with a man who claims his victory is “righteous,” and that his opponents are evil. I will not demonize Obama but I will not allow him to demonize his critics either, by cloaking his claims in false piety.

John McCain tried to play by the rules and he got screwed. I congratulate Senator McCain on the final result. I stayed loyal to him to the end. Given the fatal errors he made, he did extremely well and limited the ultimate, long-term injury to the Republican Party.

Now we must defend the Constitution and prevent Obama from undermining our institutions and establishing an electoral dictatorship similar to that of his hero Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.

Sadly, Republicans are better at playing defense than they are at running an offense. That was why they did so well in 1995-2001, and why they have done so poorly since then. While I recognize Obama’s illegitimacy as a political leader, I do not doubt that many of the positions he espoused are popular. Some may even be necessary. But the glow and aftermath of his victory will fade faster than anyone can now imagine.

Obama was elected for one reason: because George Bush undermined America. Bush started an unnecessary war in Iraq, and he pursued domestic policies that lost sight of the needs of ordinary Americans. John McCain paid the price for having flown too close to Bush, a fatal error in any pilot. McCain should have anticipated and avoided that risk.

Barack Obama has given the Republican Party a loud wake-up call. The party has been trapped in the throes of cultural extremism. We must renew and revise our guiding principles and throw open our doors to what will be a steady stream of victims of “Obamaism.” Instead of a pro-life/pro-choice party, we must become an all-American and all-Americans party. We must be everything Obama is not: for a sound defense and a strong economy. Opportunity, not redistribution. And that’s it. Just as Jesus chased the money-changers from the temple, we must chase the right-wing profiteers from the Republican temple. One nation. One Party. No outcasts. All are welcome.

By default, I have also become the “legal opposition.” I will be in court in Honolulu on November 18th seeking a court order to open Barack Obama’s secret birth certificate. What is in the document that Mr. Obama does not want the American people to see? Until his family history is revealed, and until his birth certificate is made public, Obama will be an illegitimate president and a pretender in the White House.

When I warned people four years ago about Barack Obama, no one would listen. Is anyone listening now?

URGENT APPEAL: The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama is raising money to oppose President-elect 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 almost a billion dollars, his opponents have raised virtually nothing. Americans can either contribute now, or pay later. If we do not succeed, Obama will.”

  1. I agree. I’ve got a forum where bloggers on this like yourself can meet. [+]

    It started in 1980, when Ronald Reagan put Bush XLI on the ticket out of a perceived political necessity. The country and the Republican party have been saddled with these semi-articulate buffoons ever since.

    There must be no more Bushes, no more Skull and Bones politicians, and no more Illuminist secret societies and New World Order fronts.

    As a Christian I will pray for Obama, for the reversal of his depraved policies, especially his inhumane attitude towards unborn human life, for the overthrow of his regime and his Godless party, and for the conversion of this country.

    Hamas to send congrats letter to Obama. Meanwhile Obama to begin intelligence briefings…Obama will have access to vastly more intelligence, including ongoing covert operations, than he was privy to as a senator, said Hayden’s message.

    “Through expanded access, greater than what he had in his briefings as a candidate or as a Senator, he will see the full range of capabilities we deploy for the United States,” Hayden wrote.

    We don’t even know if he is a natural born citizen as required by the Constitution. God save us…………

    I do indeed support you but I’m afraid it has to be only in mind and spirit because my pension is stretched beyond its limit. I appreciate your efforts to make the truth known.

    In Obama’s memoirs he mentions travelling to Pakistan on an Indonesian Passport as Barry Soetoro. I understand that he was adopted by his step-father and attended an Indonesian school which records show Barry Soetoro attended as a muslim and an Indonesian citizen. His sister still carries the Soetoro name. When did Barry “reclaim” Obama — he needs to produce those records as well — I’m sure that some of his unaccessible school records will hold some important clues. As president-elect he no longer enjoys the privacy of a regular citizen — he is a servant of the American public and thus subject to all of us citizens and should be held accountable for clearing up these questions. Just because a “public official” says that he was born in Hawaii, end of subject! Doesn’t wash very well. He needs to be scrutinzed. His Indonesian citizenship and his as yet unrevealed birth certificate puts his eligibility as POTUS in question and until he produces the records for scrutiny he is a usurper to the Presidency and as I write this he is receiving his first TOP SECRET CIA briefing. Because of Obamas’ ability to get all of his records sealed he is guilty by omission. I cannot for the life of me understand how he was able to get anything more than a confidential security clearance and wouldn’t be able to withstand a Special Background Investigation necessary for a Top Secret clearance, unless he omitted facts about his citizenship, contact with subersives, and foreign travel (he should have been required to provide a true copy of his birth certificate “certified and notarized with a seal”, as such). The only news organization (except for the talk radio heroes) that questioned Obamas’ his birth certificate and subversive, as well as criminal, contacts, was Fox News. (I kinow there were a lot of blurbs in different publicatons, but were never followed with appropriate investigation. Probably out of fear of being canned if they spoke out against the “messiah”. John McCain had it right when he referred to Obama as “that one”.) There are just too many cover-ups and sealed records. He obviously feels that he is above scrutiny and all those culpable will hide the facts that should have been released as a matter public record. I understand that his application to the Illinois State Bar Association may also have some “omissions” of his past. Even George Bush was pressured into releasing some of his National Guard service records. Just because he has a passport doesn’t make him a citizen, he may also have hidden details on his passport application.

    My other concern is that Obama will be able to appoint a Supreme Court Justice (or two or three) and start dismantling the 2nd Amendment and Roe v. Wade, and sites lack of “constitutional economic justice”, redistribution of wealth and legislating from the bench. He may even entertain ideas of making changes to “The Constitution”. After all he was a Constitutional Law Professor, and keeps referring to “economic justice”, by providing relief to the middle class by taking down the wealthy. I have not heard either Obama or McCain talk about the working poor and non-working poor. What happens to the middle class when the wealthy become middle class. My guess is that they would become the new working poor and “stuff” would roll down hill from there.

    We already know he thinks that we, as a nation, should be paying more for gasoline, that he would bankrupt coal plants and that electricity would skyrocket. I don’t understand how that would help anyone of us, let alone the working poor or poverty stricken. We, as a nation, cut our consumption of gas and guess what, oil prices went down, gas prices have fallen to almost pre-Katrina levels. Now with the economic mess Wall Street and congressional n’er do wells have gotten us into, Pelosi wants to throw another bone to the people with another stimulus package that includes pet projects that would have little to no effect except put money in the pockets of their cronies. Rebate checks will go to IPODs, game consoles and flat screens, not toward electricity bills, maybe a couple of tanks of gas, but otherwise a useless effort. My wife and I moved from Utica, New York, to Mississippi just 3 weeks before Katrina, we evacuated and it was 2 weeks after the hurricane we were able to go back. Our house suffered minimal damage but it was still another 10 days before we had electricity (and air conditioning). By time we did get back we were practically broke. We survived those 10 days without electricity. We ate MRE’s, drank bottled water and kept our stuff cold by ice doled out by the National Guard. My point is, being on a fixed income, then as now, energy price increases would hurt those that can afford it less. Do I think that there should be a redistribution of the wealth? Hell no! I think that our country has the capability to come up with energy efficiencies and alternate sources that will cut harmful emissions and, at the same time, keep gas prices low. OPEC would like to manipulate the market to ensure $150 barrels of oil if they could, but we have shown that we can cut back the demand (as long as we can keep speculators from manipulation, the prices should stay down). His idea of bankrupting coal plants that produce some 30% of our electricity would be a crime against the citizens that cannot afford it. We would be confined to our homes because we couldn’t afford enough gas to get out of the driveway. I’m glad we moved to a better climate, especially after hearing that heating oil, and natural gas prices increased 3 fold this past year — we never would have survived financially. My apologies for the diversion from the subject.

  6. I sometimes wonder whether Andy Martin and the former information minister in Iraq under Hussein are related? There just seems to be a — how should we call it — disconnect with reality. At best, Martin shows us the wonders of democracy and our legal system: anyone, even someone who is not admitted to practice law in any state, can file a lawsuit. Of course, you can file papers in any court and call it a lawsuit . . . but let’s get real here. Andy Martin proclaims he is THE “legal opposition”? If that is so, then it is clear there really is none.

    Mr. Martin, Thank you for what you are doing for your country. All of us in this country DO HAVE A RIGHT to know for a FACT that he is a natural born citizen. He should follow the law like anyone else and he needs to prove it. The blame lies with the person or persons that have not done their job byclearing this up. There are others things that can be done to get their attention and I say we should do everything that is within the law to do this. Tell us what to do, we would gladly do what we can.
