(NEW YORK)(April 8, 2011) Corruption-fighting Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin holds a Palm Beach news conference today, Friday, April 8th at 3:00 P.M. to offer to help real estate investor Donald Trump better understand the facts involving Barack Obama’s clouded birth. Martin is in South Florida following up on a debate challenge Andy made to Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts.
“Donald Trump has been the proverbial manna from heaven,” Martin says. “He has pushed the question of Barack Obama’s birth onto every television network and cable channel. There is no way I could ever thank Donald enough for what he has done to raise the profile of the ‘Birther’ movement. But in the past few days Donald has made some remarks that could undermine him. I’m not saying ‘You’re fired,’ yet, but Donald has to do his homework before he goes further.
“Seven years ago I created the ‘Birther’ movement when I started exposing Barack Obama’s lies and exaggerations,” Martin notes. “I wrote the first ‘birth certificate’ stories in 2007. During the past seven years Obama has confronted an indefatigable adversary. I have been committed to searching for the truth, and finding the facts, nothing more, nothing less.
“When I landed in Honolulu in 2008 I was the first independent investigator to look into Obama’s hidden past on the island.
“That’s why Obama has tried to smear me on national television and on the front page of the New York Times; but he has never shaken any of my facts. That’s why Obama’s dirty tricks people continue to be terrified by my investigations and harass my campaign for president.
“Last weekend we conducted a two-day conference on Obama’s missing birth certificate in Washington, DC. It was our Third National Conference:
“We have now created our own YouTube channel, and posted all of the video from the conference (see links under “links to this story” below).
“For those interested in a concise examination of the questions surrounding Obama’s birth, I refer people (and Donald) to my original 2008 interview:
“After sending a crew to follow me part of the time in Honolulu, CNN yucked up the results of my research:
“But I then embarrassed CNN. Shortly after they made a joke of my research, we proved CNN wrong. CNN had relied on the bogus ‘birth certificate’ Obama provides to shield disclosure of his original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate. And of course the ultimate ‘gold standard’ interview on Barack Obama was done by me on Sean Hannity’s America:
“I think my interview with Sean Hannity predicted with uncanny accuracy what Obama would become in the White House.
“Where is Trump making mistakes? First, Trump has referred to Obama’s ‘grandmother.’ I debunked the ‘grandmother’ story four years ago. The lady in question is not Obama’s grandmother. Obama lied and tried to falsely portray the Kenyan woman as a ‘grandmother’ to the gullible mainstream media because he was ashamed to introduce his real grandmother in Hawai’i. Obama’s bogus grandmother was a chapter in my book (see below)
“Second, I created the original investigative team in Hawai’i. We have done investigations of Obama, photographed areas of interest, and conducted conferences. There is a pretty substantial archive of our activity.
“There is no evidence of any ‘Trump’ investigators in Hawai’i. Trump, of course, is known for hyperbole in his television and real estate projects. But presidential candidates can’t lie to the public. If Trump exaggerates what he is actually doing, he could tarnish all of the other Republican candidates, including me. Especially me, because I am the ‘Birther’ presidential candidate.
“Given that my due and diligent search could find no evidence of Trump investigators in Honolulu, Donald needs to come forward to disclose (i) who his investigators are and (ii) what absolutely ‘unbelievable information’ he claims to have discovered.
“Unlike business and ‘deals,’ politics is not a hide-go-seek enterprise. If you say something you have to produce something. The public’s memory is long, and virtually indelible, where candidates are concerned.
“In closing, I am here to help Mr. Trump. We are on the same team. The ‘Truth Team.’ We are on the same side of history. We both want the facts about Obama to come out.
“I am happy to brief Mr. Trump on the history of the ‘Birther’ movement. Donald has to realize that in political campaigns, making inflated statements can impose long-term costs and boomerang. If he claims to have found ‘unbelievable information’ and fails to produce it, over 100 million Ameliorants who have doubts about Obama will be frustrated and tarnished.
“So, no, it’s not time to say ‘You’re fired,’ yet. But Donald has to be aware of the need for accuracy and precision when making statements about the president of the United States. If Donald wants the benefit of my investigative resources in Honolulu, I am ready to jump on a plane and help him out there as well. Investigating Obama can and should be a team effort. My record shows I am in for the long haul. I hope Trump is too.
“To date I am the only formally announced Republican presidential candidate. We are running ads and rolling out a national campaign (see presidential website above). I welcome Donald to the race, if he decides to run. And we can and should work together on the Obama birth issue even after he becomes a candidate. The issues involving Obama’s birth should be a bipartisan inquiry,” Andy says.
