'Breaking' NYC News Conference To Expose Obama/Rezko Connection

As if Obama didn't have enough trouble with the 'Bitter and Gun Clinging" fiasco this week, he is now faced with some serious revelations that could potentially end his candidacy.

(NEW YORK)(April 15, 2008) Chicago's Number One media analyst, Obama expert and Internet columnist Andy Martin will hold a 4:00 P.M. New York City news conference today, April 15th, to condemn Senator Barack Obama's latest prevarications and "lapse of memory" as reflected in the Tony Rezko trial.

Indeed the case is very much about Mr. Obama.
The Chicago media have sold the nation the biggest pig-in-a-poke in recent political history. They have sold Obama as the great savior, the Teflon 'hope,' when Obama is merely just another glib Sammy Glick, who challenged the Chicago Democratic Machine until he got his own slice of the pie, and then quietly slept with Emil Jones and the other slimy machine hacks in The Party.
If there was such a tort (legal wrong) as journalistic malpractice, all of Chicago's media should be put on trial and charged with defrauding the American people about Barack Obama. They wanted him to win, because he was a good story, and a great local story, and they engineered his ascent while fully aware of the cancer behind the curtain.

"Obama recently went to the Tribune and Sun-Times and promised to make a clean breast of 'everything.' And he lied all over again. How did he just manage to forget he had been an ornament at a Rezko soiree at which the guest of honor was one of the richest men in the world?

Martin is a known anti-Semite and he's previously filed a libel suit against the NYT. If this is so "serious" maybe you'd like to give us a link showing the NYT taking this disgusting individual "seriously".

And I have never heard of this "Chicago's Number One media analyst".

Who is giving his press conference from NEW YORK.

Time to start calling these Rezko-BS diaries for what they are:  the work of GOP agent provocateurs.  

However from the past 1-2 weeks, it is clear the REAL Democrats (with a capital-D) are returning to MyDD.  The BS artists are getting drowned out.

Re: 'Breaking' NYC News Conference To

Steve! Before you go running off again, care to defend these comments?

As Media Matters for America noted, Martin was author Catherine Moy's purported source for claiming that Obama "flat-out lied" about his upbringing, and that the school Obama attended as a child in Indonesia was "not a madrassa, but that they did teach the Quran, and they did teach that Jews are pigs. So that it -- you know, those kind of things that the Quran teaches, all of those things in the Quran that offend so many, he was taught." The claim that Obama attended a madrassa as a child -- originating in InsightMag.com -- has been thoroughly debunked. Before Obama's February 10 announcement that he would run for president, Martin wrote: "During Obama Week leading up to February 10th, we will release our CIA-style psychological profile on him; that analysis will cast more light on Barack's supple psyche and his ability to seamlessly deny objective reality."

Media Matters also noted that, according to a February 10, 2006 Chicago Tribune article, Martin "referred to a federal bankruptcy judge as a 'crooked, slimy Jew, who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race,'" and expressed "understand[ing] for how the Holocaust took place." Several news articles have reported that Martin's Selective Service file described him as having a "moderately-severe character defect manifested by well documented ideation with a paranoid flavor and a grandiose character."

Even his Selective Service file says he's nuttier than a bowl of grape nuts, and you're going to defend this hatemonger? Insane. You really will believe anything you want to as long as it justifies your hatred. Get the fuck off this site.

Do you mean this Andy Martin?

http://mediamatters.org/items/2007032900 11

In a March 28 column for NewsMax.com titled "Free Obama's White Grandmother," "Internet journalist" Andy Martin wrote that Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), whom he called "one of the most racist politicians in America today," has "locked the grandmother who actually raised him away in a closet," adding: "[T]he 'segregation' of Madelyn Dunham, Obama's white grandmother, and only real grandmother, has to be one of the cruelest and most mendacious political kidnappings this nation has ever seen." Martin wrote that Dunham "is the 'Prisoner of Obama,' and of Obama's racist myth that he is 'Black' and not 'Black and White.'

More in-depth "journalism" from Andy:

As Media Matters for America noted, Martin was author Catherine Moy's purported source for claiming that Obama "flat-out lied" about his upbringing, and that the school Obama attended as a child in Indonesia was "not a madrassa, but that they did teach the Quran, and they did teach that Jews are pigs.
