Andy Martin’s press release 
Hawai’i judge conducts vigorous hearing on Obama birth certificate battle, reserves ruling. 
Andy Martin will launch a “National Conversation on the Future of America” Wednesday evening in Honolulu
(HONOLULU)(November 18, 2008)  Aloha from Hawai’i. A Honolulu circuit judge heard vigorous arguments in the lawsuit filed by Obama author Andy Martin. Martin is seeking access to Barack Obama’s original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate. The judge reserved judgment.

“We had about a half-hour hearing,” Martin states. “Both the Attorney General and I vigorously presented our respective positions. The Court gave no indication of when or how the ruling could come or what the result will be.
“I have ordered a transcript of the hearing and as soon as it arrives we will post it on our blogs. People should be able to read the arguments in Court. Rather than characterize what was said, I will allow everyone to review the presentation for themselves.
“Tuesday afternoon through the gracious assistance of a local supporter I was able to visit the National Cemetery where the ashes of Barack Obama’s grandfather are interred. The Punchbowl Cemetery is very still, and very moving. I am always brought to deep emotion by the graves of the unknown, known only to God, who answered the call and gave their lives in our service. The famous war correspondent Ernie Pyle is also buried at Punchbowl.
“Sadly, there was no ornamentation or remembrance at the plaque of Stanley Dunham. Obama’s memorialization of his family members seems to be limited to the occasional photo op. I hope to have a detailed column on Madelyn Dunham’s memorial as soon as possible, but Wednesday we will be busily working away in the Courthouse again. We are trying to utilize our time in Honolulu as intensively as possible.
“Wednesday at 5:30 P.M. we will launch our National Conversation on the Future of America under Barack Obama and the future of the anti-Obama movement. We will issue details late Tuesday night. Anyone wanting to attend can just show up.
“We will be taking the National Conversation around the country, to South Florida in November, and Northern and Southern California in December, to anywhere and everywhere people are interested. But we thought we would try our best to launch these informal meetings in Hawai’i, where Obama began, and where the movement to remove him from office in 2012 should also begin.
“All are welcome to join us for a free form discussion,” Martin stated. “If anyone who was in court Tuesday shows up, they can deliver their own impression of what happened.”
A formal announcement will follow in a few hours.
