Dear Friends:

It has been nearly six months since we have had to solicit any financial support for our efforts. The Committee’s financial resources are once again depleted.

Here is what we need:

Second National Conference:

We are convening a Second National Conference on Barack Obama’s missing birth certificate and missing high school/college/law school records. We estimate that the cost of producing the conference will be approximately $2,000, covering space rental, videotaping (for Internet posting), editing, etc. If you can contribute financially to helping us run a successful conference, please do. If you can also attend, more’s the better.

“Obama: The Hawai’i Years”:

Our short film “Obama: The Hawai’i Years” is almost ready to view. We plan to release it before the National Conference in December. We are still short of money to complete the project and are running in a deficit situation. We need $7,500 to finish the project. If we receive $10,000 we will be able to afford to post the entire film on the Internet unedited, instead of posting it on YouTube in short segments.

In the film we ask the questions that we have asked in the past, as well as making new inquiries. We offer some new, expanded answers. And we do so with pictures of Hawai’i and Obama’s early years. And, finally, we point to the unanswered questions about Barack Obama’s family history.

Even though I am very knowledgeable about Obama’s past, actually producing the script and going to Honolulu to shoot the film helped me to probe deeper into the mysteries surrounding the man. Obama’s opaque “roots” are not something that can be deciphered in one pass.

We need your financial support to do justice to the historical research we are conducting and producing.

Unlike some of Obama’s critics, I have been scrupulously honorable and honest in seeking only the truth about him, and trying to find only the facts about his past. Because of my passion for the truth and the facts, I seem to get under Obama’s skin, whereas his critics who float unsustainable theories are ignored. Obama wants to hide the truth; help us in our search for the facts.

Please help support these projects financially.

Please note that all contributions to the conference/film should be made through the Committee of One Million web site (, NOT through my U. S. Senate campaign web site ( We keep completely separate records.

Please feel free to call if you have any questions.

I know I can count on you to make a contribution that supports our historical research.

Dear Friends:

The “Second National Conference on Barack Obama’s Missing Birth Certificate and College Records” is taking shape. Here is our first update.

Because I have always limited myself to searching for the truth and finding the facts about Barack Obama, I enjoy worldwide credibility as the first investigative scholar on Barack Obama’s early years. I believe it is inappropriate to attack Obama with anything less than the facts and truth. My book on Barack Obama, “Obama: The Man Behind The Mask” continues to sell on and through the publisher because it is an attempt to get at the truth behind Barack Obama.

As all of you know, I am currently a Republican candidate for United States Senator in the February 2, 2010 Illinois primary. During the past several months I have devoted 100% of my time to the campaign. On December 28th we will be “full-time” on the campaign once again. But there is a brief period in mid-December when we can meet to discuss Obama developments.

I know that all of you want to discuss and review developments in 2009 concerning Obama’s birth and high school/college/law school records. So we are organizing a Second Conference for December 19-19 in New York City. Obama continues to refuse to release his original typewritten 1961 Hawai’i birth certificate. He refuses to release any of his Punahou School (Honolulu private school) records, his Occidental College records, his Columbia University records or his Harvard Law School records. Obama’s says “trust me;” do you?

1. Location

The conference will be held in New York City December 18-19. We plan a Friday evening session, 7-9:00 P.M. December 18th, and a Saturday morning afternoon session December 19th. The conference will be videotaped for broadcast on the Internet. We are scouting for a meeting location in midtown Manhattan.

Obama saboteurs stole the tapes of our first National Conference in Washington, DC. We will ensure they do not steal the tapes of this meeting. For some reason, Obama and his associates are terrified of the investigative work we do on his personal history. What is he hiding? What doesn’t he want us to find out?

2. Hawai’i freedom of information materials

We received a very generous grant to cover the costs of paying the State of Hawai’i for freedom-of-information materials. Unfortunately, those materials did not arrive in time for our first National Conference. We are reviewing the materials for our New York meeting.

3. Conference Registration fee and ID requirement

As always, we need some advance indication of how large the attending group could be to make space-planning decisions. Therefore, we have added a nominal $35 advance registration fee which covers both sessions. The door charge will be $50 to attend one or both meetings. Please fill out the attendance form and mail it back with the $35 to arrive in New York before December 16th. Please include a copy of a photo ID so we can confirm your identity when you arrive at the conference. (The late fee will be $50 cash only “at the door” with a photo ID.) Once we know how many to plan for, we can work out how formal or informal to be.

We are currently scouting midtown meeting options in Manhattan. We will notify you by e-mail as soon as we choose a location. You can also follow developments on our blog.

4. Conference agenda

In the near future you will be receiving the first draft of our proposed agenda. You are invited to begin submitting suggestions, comments and proposals for any future revisions.

We do have a big “surprise” planned for the conference, of course. That will be revealed at the Saturday morning session.

5. All are welcome—but please bring evidence, not illusions

Anyone is welcome to register and attend our conference. But please, if you want to express a theory, bring some rational, tangible evidence to support your claims about Mr. Obama. Those of you who know me know I am committed to working only with accurate information and, as we lawyers say, “reasonable inferences drawn from the available facts or available documentation.”

Pie-in-the-sky will not fly. Hucksters who use bogus documents to obtain anti-Obama publicity only undermine legitimate inquiries into Obama’s opaque past. We need to search for the truth and look for the facts.

6. Security

We will have adequate arrangements for security in case Obama’s desperate sycophants try to disrupt us again.

7. Media

Media are welcome, but we would suggest you let us know in advance. We will be providing updates during the conference (

8. Visitors to New York City

Just a reminder: December 18-19 is a pre-holiday weekend in New York. If you plan to stay overnight, we suggest you make early plans. A good place to look for affordable lodging is Queens.

We will be issuing updates of this letter, so please feel free to make suggestions.

And please also remember we operate on a shoestring, so contribute any shoestrings you can afford. We are going to issue a separate fundraising letter.

With best wishes,

Obama film, “Obama: The Hawai’i Years,” set for November debut in Chicago

U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin’s long-expected film, “Obama: The Hawai’i years,” will open this month in Chicago. Martin’s work was delayed both by harassment and abuse from Barack Obama’s supporters and then by Martin’s U.S. Senate campaign. In the Republican primary, Martin faces Barack Obama’s biggest supporter in the Republican Party: extreme liberal Mark Kirk.

Andy Martin is set to release a new Obama film: “Obama The Hawai’i years”

Obama operatives have tried to disrupt the film and harass the producer Andy Martin

Martin says release of his new film may renew questions about Obama’s missing typewritten 1961 birth certificate

U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin has a worldwide reputation for his research in Hawai’i on Barack Obama’s family history, for his bestselling book, and for his blockbuster appearance on “Hannity’s America”

(SPRINGFIELD, IL)(November 12, 2009) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin will hold a Springfield news conference Thursday, November 12th to announce the release of his new film, “Obama: The Hawai’i Years.”

“I am excited,” Martin will state. “Barack Obama has done everything he can to sabotage our film project, and to sabotage me personally. His dirty tricksters constantly harass me with illegal activity. He wasn’t able to stop me or my film.

“The film is an outgrowth of our original investigative trip to Hawai’i in October, 2008. After learning I was seeking an interview with his grandmother, Barack Obama also appeared in Honolulu. Over the past year Obama and his thugs have done everything they can to disrupt my research and investigation into his past:

“Obama attacked me for appearing on Sean Hannity’s ‘Hannity’s America.’ That backfired.

“Obama tried to smear me with a front page story in the New York Times. That backfired. The more Obama tried to stop me, the more I was able to stop him.

“White House operative Robert Gibbs tried to smear me on Fox News. That backfired as well. On and on it goes.

“Why is Barack Obama obsessed with me? Because, unlike many of his critics, I have maintained a scrupulous commitment to searching for the truth and trying to find the facts about this elusive person. That’s why we went to Honolulu, and that’s probably why Obama followed me there.

“We originally planned to release the film last summer. But Obama’s harassment delayed production. Obama’s operatives have stolen some of the tapes we produced last April in Washington. We have filed suit to recover that property.

“We continue to search for the truth and seek to find the facts.

“Our first film is short, but it places Obama’s missing past in visual context.

“There are several critical points I would like to make today.

“First, Obama continues to refuse to release his original typewritten 1961 birth certificate. What is he trying to hide? The facsimile document that he released is missing significant data.

“Second, Obama claims he was born in a Honolulu hospital. That fact is also unproven. The hospital will not release its records.

Unlike some of Obama’s critics, who claim he was born in Kenya, I have found no evidence to sustain that claim. My expert opinion as an investigator and researcher is that Obama was born somewhere in Hawai’i.

“Third, when I speak as a candidate for the U. S. Senate, I am an opponent of Barack Obama’s political agenda. Indeed, I am Obama’s toughest adversary, running in the primary against Obama’s biggest Republican supporter, Mark Kirk. Mark Kirk's political agenda is Barack Obama's agenda.

“Fourth, when I speak as an author/investigator/artist, I speak to the truth, not to an agenda. I have been relentless in searching for the truth and working to find the facts about Obama. I have not massaged the facts of his life to fit my political agenda, and I do not cut my political agenda to conform to his past. The roles of political leader and author/producer are distinct, and I respect that distinction in my work.

“Fifth, when I work as a candidate/political opponent I do inject my views. As a writer/producer, I insert my artistic opinions and my creative analysis.

“Sixth, when we began pre-production earlier this year, Obama was at the peak of his power. It was difficult to obtain financial support. We produced this short feature on a budget. We simply did not have the resources necessary to do a complete treatment. In the film, we appeal for more money to continue our research.

“Now that Obama’s influence has begun to decline, people are renewing their interest in his unknown personal records and opaque family history. Once again, I have one-upped ‘Barry O.’ Because he delayed my project, Obama insured my film would arrive at a time when there is growing public interest in his peculiar biography. My new film is a first step in discovering Obama’s unknown past.

“Seventh, during the past several months, the Illinois process for ballot access, called ‘petitioning,’ virtually took over my life. Petitioning took precedence. Now that I am on the ballot, I have more control of my schedule. When my senate campaign schedule permits, we will again work in the courts to fight for access to Obama’s historical records as well as developing new projects.

“Eighth, Barack Obama would probably not satisfy all of his opponents and end speculation about his past if he released his original files to public scrutiny. But he could eliminate a lot of doubts about him which are held by honest and honorable Americans. That's why I call myself a ‘doubter,’ not a ‘birther.’

“The number of Americans who would like to know the truth about Obama’s past—to see his original birth certificate, his Punahou School records, his college and law school records--is growing.
The doubts which Obama creates with his secrecy will not go away with continued secrecy. They will only become more insistent, more acute and more disruptive for the Obama administration.

“Ninth, this film will disappoint some of Obama’s critics, because I acknowledge that he did in fact get more votes than the Republican, and the means by which this ‘president’ came into being reflects a fascinating story of unlikely people thrown together in an improbable story.

“We try to provide an opportunity for all points of view to be heard. As I immersed myself in Hawai’i history, I came to understand Obama better; I want people to feel we have been fair to Obama, even if he has not been fair to me. That’s the American way.

“Tenth, we plan to post the film in short segments on YouTube, with the same intro and a fund appeal, as well as offering a ‘paid’ version of the uncut production for $9.95. We will start taking orders shortly. We are exploring posting an uncut version on the Internet as well. Funds will be a factor. As always, we are short of cash and working on a shoestring.

“This film is not the last word. It is the first word. I hope to stimulate additional financial support. And more research.

“As a political opponent of Barack Obama, perhaps the most effective and persistent political opponent Obama has ever faced, I want to lead the effort to defeat his agenda in the U. S. Senate.

“Obama has not been able to stop me. Not in 2004. Not in 2007. Not in 2008 and not in 2009. I hope the people of Illinois will afford me the privilege of serving them in the United States Senate. If they do, Obama will have failed, once again, to stop me. Both as a political leader and Obama investigator I have over forty years of television, radio and media experience.

“But as a writer, author, researcher, investigator, scholar and artist, I will continue to study this man’s past objectively: in Honolulu, New York, Cambridge, Chicago and today in the White House.

“Finally, I hope people enjoy this film. As I have done for a growing audience over the past five (5) years, my writing and research has made the truths and unknown truths about Barack Obama more accessible and understandable to the American people,” Martin will state. “They may not have been listening carefully in 2008. They are listening very carefully now.”
