Andy Martin Accuses Obama of Dirty Tricks

I just received this press release from Andy Martin, self-described "leader of the anti-Obama movement". Martin asserts that Barack Obama's "'dirty tricks' operation" is more sophisticated that of President Richard M. Nixon and that:

Obama unleashed his attack dogs on the Palin family. It is one of the most disgraceful performances I have witnessed in a half century of observing politics.

Martin's accusations do not seem extreme or far fetched. Obama's protestations about the recent (failed) Democratic attempts to smear Governor Sarah Palin indeed sounded insincere. I have been concerned about Mr. Obama's ethics for several months and concluded that Mr. Obama is a sociopath this past June. I would be very surprised if Mr. Obama did not engage in a considerable degree of intelligence gathering, lying and deception.


(NEW YORK)(September 2, 2008) The leader of the national anti-Obama movement, legendary Chicago Internet columnist and Obama author Andy Martin, will hold a New York news conference Tuesday, September 2nd to charge that Senator Barack Obama's "dirty tricks" operation was behind the smearing of Governor Sarah Palin's family.

Martin is the author of "Obama: The Man Behind the Mask."

"I want to make the accusation loudly and clearly: Barack Obama has the most sophisticated 'dirty tricks' operation in American political history. His smear artists make Nixon's 'plumbers' look like amateurs. David Axelrod's smear machine is part and parcel of the way he does business. This smear machine was behind the desperate attempts to demonize Governor Sarah Palin by embarrassing and exposing her daughter.

"Obama also likes to provide plausible deniability by protesting 'too much' that something is 'off limits' when he knows that all while his smear operation is in progress. Anonymously. Why this man wants to abolish anonymity on the Internet puzzles me. He is the most pronounced anonymous smear agent on the Internet.

"Obama's fingerprints and Axelrod's fingerprints are all over the Palin smear.

"Wednesday we will have a more detailed analysis of the pervasiveness of Obama's smear and dirty tricks operations.

"But today I am blowing the whistle on the mysterious Barry Obama, and alerting the American people to the threat Obama poses to our democracy.

"During the Army McCarthy hearings in 1954, attorney Joseph Welch uttered the eternal words: 'Senator, I think I never really gauged your cruelty, or your recklessness. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?'

"Obama's own teenage mother was caught in an unwanted and unwarranted pregnancy.

"Instead of being especially sensitive to such a situation, Obama unleashed his attack dogs on the Palin family. It is one of the most disgraceful performances I have witnessed in a half century of observing politics. At long last, Senator Obama, have you no sense of decency? You know what your dirty tricks operatives are doing, your 'Obamabots.' You, sir, are a threat to both American democracy and American decency.

"John McCain once said he would rather lose an election than lose a war. You would rather risk destroying a helpless teenage girl to further your mindless and limitless ambition.

"You launched your poisonous attacks. Now you want to pretend you had nothing to do with the smears. Well they did happen, and you are personally responsible for the Obama/Axelrod dirty tricks operation. You have been demonizing and smearing opponents since your first run for office.

"I saw you smear Blair Hull and Jack Ryan four years ago. I saw you try the same dirty trick against John McCain a few weeks ago. The latest mud is nothing new. This is the real Obama, the only Obama."

Andy Martin was a guest on the WABC-AM "Bob Grant Show" Monday evening. During the show, Grant told his audience "Buy this book." "I was surprised at how well-prepared Bob was," Martin stated. "He was familiar with my book. He 'got it.' Like me, Grant is an Illini. He gets Obama because he understands Illinois politics. I am sure the Obamabots will be attacking Grant the same way they attacked Milt Rosenberg in Chicago."

Andy will be at the Reuters Building in midtown Manhattan Tuesday morning at 10:00 A.M. for an Al-Jazeera English taping on American politics. His Obama news conference will follow at 12 noon.<

Which aspect of employee benefits or business qualifies you as an expert on sociopathy? Just curious.

The best reason for you to support Andy Martin is the fact that, compared to Andy Martin, you sound somewhat rational and intelligent.

Otherwise, not so much.

How's it going with that penpal campaign to the various states' secretaries of state, atorneys general, etc etc etc about Barack Obama being an alien? Did you figure out yet where he's from, exactly? Last time I looked, your list included Canada, Indonesia, Kenya and, I believe, Mars.

Your fifteen minutes is up, Mr. Langbert. Please excuse America for laughing on your way out.

That post was indeed hilarious Mr. Langbert.
Psychopath? Are you serious?

Do you think its funny that one week is all it took for the media to expose a number of stories on Sarah Palin? You’ve spent 2 years writing letters to various hospitals and agencies to investigate the “sordid” background on Obama.
Do you really not see the hypocrisy in you screaming “how dare they look into the background of this Vice Presidential candidate!!!”
I look at your site from time to time because it amuses me. I am by no means a hardcore republican or democrat and I have voted for both in past elections. Quite frankly, I feel that anyone who would go to the lengths that you have,..whether Democrat or Republican, clearly has lost their ability to decipher between fact and fiction. You write about Obama as if he has wronged you personally.

Do you not find humor in the fact that Palin has been a staunch advocate for teaching abstinence in school and her own daughter turns up pregnant?
(Obviously teenage pregnancy is not funny, but the baby is the grandchild of a governor, so I think he/ her will be just fine.)

Or the improper use of executive power..

Or the past connection to the Alaskan Independence Party…

Or the drug use..

Or McCain screaming for 2 years about his opponent’s lack of experience and then selecting a 20 month governor as VP from a state with 600,000 people.. (The county I live in, has more people)

The real tip off that you’ve lost sight with reality is your inability to that you’re not even questioning whether the scandal(s) surrounding Palin’s past are “true”…you’re more concerned with pinning what you call “smears” on Obama.
Again.. Hypocrisy = funny.

Obviously there are several negative stories about McCain and Obama’s past that are less than stellar. No one has lived a perfect life free of bad decisions. But its always funny when Politicians or people in general put themselves on high moral ground and end up standing in quicksand when the truth comes out.

I’m sure a Private Investigation into your background would yield the same results. The truth will set you free.

Any luck on finding that original birth certificate?
I await your response. I’m guessing you’ll scream “liberal!” and blame Obama. Enjoy your day.

Diogenes--Be proud Diogenes. You exemplify the lameness of the left to my readers (nearly 20,000 in less than six months). Please keep posting. My readers enjoy laughing.

Truthhurts--I don't find it problematic that Gov. Palin's daughter became pregnant. In 1884 the Republican elite of Boston and New York backed Grover Cleveland, then a Democratic governor, to be president. It was discovered that Mr. Cleveland had had an illicit affair with a mistress. This deterred a few of them from supporting him, but most chose to support him anyway, as his character, like Mr. McCain's, though imperfect, was superior in their view to his opponent's, James Blaine's. Senator Obama is something like James Blaine. As Senator McCain's soaring poll results show, Mr. Soros and Senator Obama's other Wall Street cronies can't fool the American public all of the time. This election is going to be the technology crash all over again for Wall Street, and you and Diogenes are long on Cisco Systems and Drugstore.com!

Many youngsters make moral errors. Governor Palin's daughter's mistake does not reflect on the candidate. My moral weaknesses do not reflect on my mother's, and my mother's, if any (which I doubt) do not reflect on me.

Nor is Ms. Palin alone. Although, sadly, I never have had children, my sister became pregnant out of wedlock. Her daughter is a great joy. I am not in the practice of throwing stones. Are you and your conscienceless left wing associates?

As far as a private investigator into my background--what is your point? I am not a chronic liar who is running for president like Barack Obama. I am not running for president at all.

" I am not in the practice of throwing stones."
You called Barack Obama a Sociopath.
Is that not a stone..?

I was not judging this girl’s pregnancy..I have no right to judge, although you feel that you do. I was stating the hypocrisy of it all. That is my point.
No need to go back to 1800s to validate this woman, you would do so no matter what. Again, that is my point. You would vote for just about anyone they put up next to McCain with an (R ) by his/ her name. That is my point. However, after reading some of your views on economics, I think you may be a libertarian (e.g. you statements about doing away with monetary policy). Maybe you should give Bob Barr some support on your site (guessing you’re not a Ron Paul fan).

Are conservatives being hypocritical with their defense of Gov. Sarah Palin and the controversies which have leaked out concerning her? Depending on how you plan on casting your vote there may seem to be a double standard.

If you're a minority or (man or woman) and you're selected for a job over more qualified candidates you're a "token hire."

If you're a conservative and you're selected for a job over more qualified candidates, you're a "game changer."

If you live in an Urban area and you get a girl pregnant you're a "baby daddy."

If you're the same in Alaska you're a "teen father." (Actually, according to your own MySpace page you're a " F'n redneck that don't want any kids," but that's too long a phrase for the evil liberal media to take out of context and flog morning noon and night).

Black teen pregnancies? A "crisis" in black America .

White teen pregnancies? A "blessed event" or "a great joy" to use your words.

If you grow up in Hawaii you're "exotic."

Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, you're the quintessential "American story."

Similarly, if you name you kid Barack you're "unpatriotic."

Name your kid Track, you're "colorful."

If you're a Democrat and you make a VP pick without fully vetting the individual, you're "reckless."

A Republican who doesn't fully vet is a "maverick."

If you say that for the "first time in my adult lifetime I'm really proud of my country," it makes you "unfit" to be First Lady.

If you are a registered member of a fringe political group that advocates secession that makes you "First Dude."

A DUI from twenty years ago is "old news."

A speech given without proper citation from twenty years ago is "relevant information."

If you are a liberal and your unwed daughter gets pregnant it's "immoral."

If you are a Christian it's called "family values."

Obama's Experience: If you spend 3 years as a community organizer growing your organization from a staff of 1 to 13 and your budget from $70,000 to $400,000, then become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new African American voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, then spend nearly 8 more years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, becoming chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, then spend nearly 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of nearly 13 million people, sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you are woefully inexperienced.

Palin's Experience: If you spend 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, then spend 20 months as the governor of a state with 650,000 people, then you've got the most executive experience of anyone on either ticket, are the Commander in Chief of the Alaska military and are well-qualified to lead the nation should you be called upon to do so because your state is the closest state to Russia.

If you are a Democratic male candidate who is popular with millions of people you are an "arrogant celebrity."

If you are a popular Republican female candidate you are "energizing the base."

If you are a younger male candidate who thinks for himself and makes his own decisions you are "presumptuous."

If you are an older male candidate who makes last- minute decisions you refuse to explain, you are a "shoot from the hip" maverick.

If you are a candidate with a Harvard law degree you are "an elitist-out of touch" with the real America .

If you are a legacy (dad and granddad were admirals), bottom of the class graduate of Annapolis , with multiple disciplinary infractions you are a hero.

If you manage a multi-million dollar nationwide campaign, you are an "empty suit."

If you are a part time mayor of a town of 7000 people (who has to hire a City Manager and leaves the town 22 million$$ in debt when it started in the black), you are an "experienced executive."

If you go to a south side Chicago church, your beliefs are "extremist."

If you believe in creationism and don't believe global warming is man-made, you are "strongly principled."

If you have been married to the same woman with whom you've been wed to for 19 years and raising 2 beautiful daughters with, you're "risky."

If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.

If you are a Democratic woman candidate and complain about the way a woman is treated and attacked in the media, it is called "whining." ( Sarah Palin 's own words)

If you are Sarah Palin and are treated the same way it is called "sexism."

If you are a Democrat and the media digs into your past and prints it, it is called "good journalism and getting to the truth."

If you are a Republican and they do the same thing, it is called a "smear campaign."

If you're a black single mother of 4 who waits for 22 hours after her water breaks to seek medical attention, you're an irresponsible parent, endangering the life of your unborn child.

But if you're a white married mother who waits 22 hours, you're spunky.

If you're a 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton , the right-wing press calls you "First Dog."

If you're a 17-year old pregnant unwed daughter of a Republican, the right-wing press calls you "beautiful" and "courageous."

If you're a liberal mayor and you ask for government financing, you're a "fan of big, tax-and-spend, corrupt government."

If you're a conservative mayor and wind up on John McCain's "worst pork" list in 2001, you are "'disgusted' that small towns like yours are dependent on earmarks," even if your town had no earmarks before you became mayor.

If you teach responsible age-appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

If you teach abstinence-only in sex education, you get teen parents.
If you're Jamie Spears, "your parents are pinheads because you got pregnant" ( O'Reilly on Fox).

If you're Bristol , your mom is eminently qualified to be VP/ or P.
Just a few reasons why your outrage amuses me.

Try to keep up that practice of not "throwing stones." Maybe I’m just sexist.
In all seriousness, I did like the stock references in your reply. Enjoy your day Mitch.
