Conservative scholar and author Andy Martin says President Barack Obama is “serving up ‘Kenyan catnip’ to a gullible American public;” Andy also challenges Donald Trump to “put up or shut up”

Conservative New Hampshire Republican Party leader and corruption fighter Andy Martin has been investigating and exposing President Barack Obama for ten (10) years, long before the national media paid any attention to the actual facts about Obama’s life, instead of Obama’s self-serving “nativity story” about his links to Kenya. Obama is now in Kenya once again peddling his “African” roots although there is at least a reasonable basis to doubt the accuracy and authenticity of that narrative. Andy was the first independent investigator to go to Hawai’i, in 2008; he looked into alternative theories that might explain Obama’s family origins. Andy returns to Honolulu in September, 2015 to continue his research into Obama’s background. In August, 2015 he will conduct a combined Obama/political conference in Washington, DC. In the following column Andy also challengers Donald Trump to “put up or shut up.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Obama continues to claim that his family origins are in Kenya, when there is a reasonable basis to doubt that claim

 

National media, in response to relentless prodding from Andy Martin, are at least starting to present a better picture of Obama’s “relatives”

 

Andy says, “Obama can’t pick and choose what he wants to acknowledge about his family history. If he wants to claim he is Kenyan, then he has to also admit that virtually all of his Kenyan relatives, including his late father, are Muslims”

 

In September, Andy returns to Hawai’i to continue his scholarly research on Obama

 

Please join us for an Obama political festival in Washington, DC August 14-16, 2015

 

Andy also drops a “stinker” on Donald Trump: “Donald should put up or shut up about his “investigators” and what they “found” in 2012; I question whether he sent anyone and whether he discovered anything. Mr. Trump, please show us the evidence

 

(Manchester, NH) (July 25, 2015)

The media are full of glowing reports concerning President Barack Obama’s latest trip to Kenya (see links below). Nevertheless, there is a reasonable basis to question whether Obama in fact has Kenyan roots. And, if Obama is indeed Kenyan, why is there no mention of the fact that almost all of his Kenyan relatives are Muslims and adhere to the Islamic faith? Obama can’t cherry-pick which aspects of his “nativity story” he wants to present to the gullible American public. So right now a little truth serum might go a long way in reviewing the history of Obama’s origins.

First, let me point out one inescapable fact, a fact which explains why Obama’s supporters intensely dislike me: I have always maintained, and maintain today, that Obama was born in Hawai’i. The claims of some who have misused my earlier scholarly research and stated that Obama was born in Kenya are wrong. Period.

There is neither a rational nor a factual basis to believe Obama himself was born in Kenya. Where did the “Obama was born in Kenya” meme really originate? It was instigated by Obama himself. Barack and Michele have played mind games with his more credulous adversaries. Obama loves to drop hints about his Kenya origins so Obama-haters can lap up these misleading suggestions.

Obama dislikes me because I stick to the facts and search for the truth, wherever that leads me.

Deal with it: Obama was born in Hawai’i.

Is it possible that Obama is really the son of Barack Obama from Kenya? Very possible but, on balance, not very probable. Let me explain why.

First, a little history. Over the past decade, Obama and his cronies have harassed, abused and smeared me not because I lied about him, but because I told the truth. Next month we are going to hold a three-day event in Washington, DC, August 14-16; you are invited and welcome to attend. Two days of the conference will be devoted to examining my scholarly research on Obama. One day will focus on the tenth (10th) anniversary on what I claim is the most significant blog post in Internet history: my August 10, 2005 posting and news conference exposing that Obama’s narrative “Dreams From My Father” was fictionalized and that Obama was not in reality who he claimed to be. In 2015, he still isn’t.

Fact #1: I exposed that Obama’s “father” (as I believed him to be in 2005) had fled to the United States because of his family’s involvement with the Mau Mau rebellion. Obama attacked me for exposing that fact and disclosing his Mau Mau ties. Later, when Obama went to London as president he admitted his grandfather had been imprisoned as a Mau Mau. This weekend Obama is meeting with the son of the original leader of the Mau Mau, “Burning Spear” Kenyatta. So my August 10, 2005 accusation that Obama had concealed his family history was later confirmed by Obama himself – after he was elected and safely ensconced in the White House.

Fact #2: Barack Obama’s putative father was a married man in Kenya when he left to study in the United States. He had a wife and children back home. In those days there was no Internet and no Google and no search engines to fact check around the world. Two sub facts follow from the basic fact of his marriage: (A) To assume the Kenyan Obama married president Obama’s mother, you have to believe he came to this country and deliberately committed a criminal act, bigamy. (B) No state in the United states recognizes a bigamous marriage. Thus, Obama’s parents were never legally married in Hawai’i. Perhaps that is why I could never find marriage license. (There is, however, evidence of a putative “divorce” from Obama’s actual mother and his “father;” one lie led to another.)

The “relatives” (half-relatives) Obama is visiting now in Kenya are products of his father’s “first” Kenyan marriage. (Obama pére also married a second time in the United States and there is a second set of half-siblings).

Fact: Going into 2007, the Chicago Sun-Times and many other media were accepting Obama’s claim that he had a “granny” in Kenya. Media finally, in 2015, are identifying her as a step-grandmother. The claim that “Grandma Sarah” was present at his father’s birth was always nonsense. The elderly lady was in all probability senile. First, she was exploited by Obama himself, who fed the false “granny” narrative to the media. Then Sarah was exploited by Obama’s opponents in 2008, when they used her to sustain their claim that Obama was born in Kenya. Obama provoked the lies in the first instance, and then he tried to profit a second time by seeking to attack those lies when they were parroted back by his opponents (which did not include me).

I was never fooled by Obama’s “Granny Sarah” nonsense. But the way in which Obama used Sarah shows how he uses false narratives to mislead his adversaries, and then attacks his opponents for accepting his own lies.

I have a theory about who is President Obama’s real father, both his biological father and his spiritual father, and that man is not Barack Obama of Kenya. When I became the first independent investigator to land in Hawai’i in 2008 I focused on Frank Marshall Davis. I was making overtures to Obama’s genuine maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who was still alive when Obama suddenly diverted his campaign airplane to Honolulu.

This is my theory. I do not present my theory as a fact, because the facts are still missing. But what I presented as a theory in 2008 has come to be accepted by many Americans in the years following my initial presentation. You can also view the film I made on Obama in Hawai’i (the first one to do so) by going to http://www.BoycottHawaii.com.

My theory is that Frank Marshall Davis, another married man, was Obama’s biological father. Due to his marital circumstances, Davis could not acknowledge his nonmarital child. So he paid off the Kenyan Barack Obama to pose as the “father.” Obama/father and his “wife” never even moved in together. What kind of a “marriage” was it when Obama’s “parents” did not even move in together despite the fact Obama/father had an apartment in Honolulu? Obama-the-father never “abandoned” his son because the president was not biologically his son.

Five people knew the truth. Obama’s maternal grandparents, Obama-the-father and Obama’s mother, and Davis. They are all dead. Until we can get a DNA test, my theory will remain just that, a theory. Davis has children in Hawai’i and elsewhere and we will in due course learn the truth, namely whether my theory is correct or incorrect. Obama may even pull a Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner style switcheroo and “discover” that Davis is his father – but only after Obama leaves the White House. You heard it here first.

Obama did not learn the truth about his parentage until after Frank Marshall Davis was dead, which explains his passive-aggressive hostility to his mother and grandparents. That was why “Frank” is the only person mentioned by name as a male figure in Hawai’i in his “autobiography” “Dreams.” “Pops” (Obama’s grandfather) took him to visit Davis on a regular basis. Why? Because “Pops” knew the truth. Obama largely ignored his grandmother in Hawai’i until he learned I was snooping around in Honolulu. Then he decided to make a surprise trip to visit her in the middle of his presidential campaign (October, 2008). She died soon after.

There are two aspects to my writing about Obama:

Politically, I do not like the man and oppose his policies. I express political opinions that are highly critical of him. But my “politics” has nothing to do with my scholarly research.

When I dig into Obama’s family origins, and other aspects of his early years in Hawai’i, California and New York, I am simply looking for the facts and searching for the truth. When looking into biographical information about Obama I maintain the highest standards of independent scholarly research.

Despite the fact he has been in the White House for over six years we still know very little about Barack Obama’s origins. He peddles his nativity story to gullible supporters and liberal suckers in the mainstream media. But if you scratch below the surface, the many questions about Obama’s family history are not difficult to find.

On August 10 2005 I published the first objective, verifiable truth about Obama. History has confirmed I was 100% correct in my analysis and presentation.

Please wait for details about our conference August 14-16, and join us on that momentous weekend in Washington, August, 2015 when we revisit and celebrate my historic blog posting exposing Obama as a fraud. In the meantime, take everything Obama says about his origins (did he remind you during his current visit to Kenya that his father was buried in a Muslim funeral in Kenya? Surprise.) with a big dose of skepticism.

In September, I return to Honolulu. My scholarly research continues.

STAY TUNED FOR announcements concerning a momentous weekend in American history, Washington, DC August 14-16. Details will follow.

P.S. In 2012, Donald Trump claimed he had sent “investigators” to Hawai’i and “you won’t believe what they are finding.” I don’t believe Trump sent anyone and I don’t believe he or they “found” anything. Now that Trump is an actual, legal candidate, he should be asked to document and disclose the details of his “investigation,” and tell us what we “shouldn’t believe.” He should be called on to put up or shut up. An actual candidate must be held to a much higher standard of truth than a mere business blatherer.

New Hampshire conservative Republican leader Andy Martin sends “An open letter to Donald Trump”

Conservative New Hampshire Republican Party leader and corruption fighter Andy Martin has known Donald Trump longer than almost anyone else in politics or business, going back to 1978. Andy is the only person who can lay claim to having “hired” Donald Trump, when he approved Donald’s application to move into Andy’s condominium building. Andy will be writing about Trump in the days ahead. But as Andy comes back from a leave-of-absence planning his 2016 “war room,” he sends Donald an open letter with some suggestions and reactions to “l’affaire McCain.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Andy Martin writes an open letter to Donald Trump

 

(Manchester, NH) (July 22, 2015)

Dear Donald:

I have been aware of you to you longer than almost anyone except your closest associates and family. Way back in 1978 when you were newly married I sat on the board of directors of Olympic Tower and received your rental application. I “hired” you to move in. When you were planning the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue I was an informal consultant to the architects, Swanke Hayden Connell. Until recently I actually had a set of the blueprints for Trump Tower stored in my basement. In the 1980’s Spy Magazine had both of our names on one of its lists.

Last January I was attending a luncheon at Mar-a-Lago and you popped in to greet the guests. I saw you in a casual, informal setting. And, your wedding was held at my church in Palm Beach. You didn’t invite me but I followed what was happening from the parish; PB is a small town.

A close friend told me you would not run for president this time. I told him he was wrong; I was confident you would run, and I was right. (Read my “Psychological Profile of Barack Obama” and you will see I do a pretty good job of psychological profiling.) I predicted in February, 2007, eight years ago, Obama would be a failure in the Oval Office, see link [1] below.

So I think it is a fair assessment that based on decades of familiarity I may understand you better than anyone else in the political and media arena.

Preliminarily, I need to make it clear that I am not endorsing or supporting any of the presidential candidates. I am committed to the defeat of Jeb Bush but otherwise would support any of a number of qualified candidates, including you. But because of my antipathy to Bush (“it’s personal, not business”) I am avoiding any endorsement that Bush could turn around and use against anyone I supported.

  1. The McCain imbroglio

As I said, I am not supporting any candidate. But even some of your strongest supporters cringed when you launched into an unprovoked attack on prisoners of war and John McCain in particular. McCain had given you a big opening to slam his poor political judgment and failed leadership. Instead, you gave a textbook example of your own failure as a potential leader.

I am not going to argue about what you said during and after the incident. The tape does not lie, and the tape is devastating. You tried to recover but there was no way to recover from the original remarks. In this letter I will suggest an approach that could put an end to the McCain situation. I hope you will accept the benefit of my half century in politics. Learn from my experience.

Because of your opposition to Jeb Bush, and my opposition to Jeb Bush, I want to rescue your campaign from yourself. You can undo the damage, but you have to act smart.

  1. Follow your own rules and advice

You are running based on your record as a spectacularly successful businessman. Great. Notwithstanding what the political class says, and notwithstanding the snickers of the media class, there is nothing wrong with “porting” success from one area of life to another. General Dwight Eisenhower wasn’t a politician. But his existing non-political skills and experience allowed him to conduct a presidency that in retrospect is receiving increasing respect. I see no reason why a seasoned business executive cannot step into the Oval Office and be an effective president.

In a New York Times article (see link [2] below), apparently based on an in interview, you left the impression that you don’t prepare for speeches and you are treating a campaign for the presidency as an afterthought. Question: Is that the way you run your business, the way you built a successful empire? Not at all.

Would you go to a real estate or mortgage closing without reading the documents in advance and preparing? Of course not. Would you sign a contract without reading it? Of course not.

And yet you went to Iowa without any preparation; you previously announced your candidacy without a prepared text. You can’t treat communication as an afterthought. You can be both spontaneous and disciplined. That is the essence of a successful communicator. Very often I will see you give an excellent speech, and then you undermine the premise of your presentation with extraneous remarks.

In New Hampshire in April you said you wanted to be taken seriously as a candidate. Then you proceeded to deliver an unserious speech.

You are a supremely disciplined businessman, which is why you have survived failures as well as successes. So why would you reverse course and run an undisciplined campaign, why would you treat communication, the essence of the process, as an area where you are totally lacking in discipline?

Instead of discarding and ignoring the principles that made you a great businessman – which is, after all, your calling card as a candidate – you should adopt and adapt and apply your successful principles to your campaign. Instead of being a sloppy candidate whom the media expects to self-destruct trough your own lack of discipline, do the opposite: Discipline yourself.

  1. The “laws of television”

I criticized John McCain as an incompetent candidate in 2008, please see link [3] below. And I created a phrase to explain how television works, which I call “the laws of television.” The laws of television also apply to you.

There are different sets of “laws” for television, some for when you are a host, and some for when you are a candidate. You can be an iconoclastic candidate; but if you violate the laws of television you can’t succeed.

There is nothing wrong with aggressively critiquing your opponents. You can dish it out, and they have to take it. But McCain was not a candidate, and you attacked him for his service in the military, not his failed political leadership over the decades. You gave the media a gotcha moment – by violating the laws of television.

McCain’s criticism of your supporters in Arizona was pathetic, part of his longstanding vitriol and hostility to conservatives in his own state.

I tagged McCain as someone who violates the law of TV way back in 2008. Which is why he lost. Don’t be a loser like McCain. Focus your attacks where they mean something, and discipline your speech (yes, the “D” word again). McCain gave you an opening to bash him for his ineffective political leadership and you blew it. Attacking McCain where he is invulnerable, his military service, was a mistake. The media were ready to pounce, and they did. And so did your opponents.

The spats with Rick Perry and Lindsay Graham are indeed sideshows. The critical comments about POW’s will have a more lasting impact if you don’t take corrective action.

So how do you work your way out?

You performance in Iowa gave hope to all of your enemies that your inability to control your extemporaneous remarks would finish you off with l’affaire McCain, or with some new gaffe.

I encourage you to keep on striking hard blows against the political gentry. That’s your job. But measure your speech by whether it advances your cause, to ensure you don’t undermine your own campaign. Obey the laws of TV and you might just win. Come across as angry and petulant on TV every time you are criticized and you can’t win. The American people love payback; have at it. Go after McCain or any of the others when they attack you, but be careful how you swing the bat. That is all I am asking.

  1. Contrition is everything

Presidential press secretary Ron Ziegler is memorably said to have remarked that “Contrition is bullshit.” In the presidential process, and in the leadership process, contrition is everything. Your answers in Iowa last Saturday to non-McCain matters were less than stellar.

Go to church this Sunday. Apparently, for the first time, ask God for forgiveness. Acknowledge that it is not only experience and wealth that define a person; his or her spiritual health is also an essential aspect of any leader’s personality and profile.

You were married at Bethesda instead of a clerk’s office. You must have some beliefs. Nurture them. Integrate them into your daily routine. And, most of all, begin every day with a prayer, and end every day with a prayer. Humility and contrition will not make you a weaker man; they will make you a stronger leader who can lead Americans in the right direction. You don’t have to change who you are to make amends with God. The very essence of Christianity is universal forgiveness and acceptance.

Much more than just speaking about your own talents and success, speak about your belief in a higher authority, in a greater calling than just yourself. Those Marines and sailor who were massacred in Chattanooga did not die for themselves. They wore a uniform that called them to a greater sense of duty and commitment. Likewise, John McCain is far from a perfect man; but when he wore a Navy uniform he owed loyalty to a cause more significant than himself.

All of us are flawed, often in many ways. But we are also capable of rising above our own limitations. As you seek to lead this nation, kneel humbly. At my church where you were married, this Sunday all of us will make the confession of sin. There is no shame in confession, only honor. Only through confession, humility and contrition can you hope to lead the American people. If your goal is to win, be a winner with God. Your performance in Iowa was spiritually underwhelming. Don’t take your base for granted.

McCain is not the brightest bulb but he gave you a lesson in contrition. Instead of demanding a personal apology he shifted your guilt to a broader base of victims, veterans and prisoners of war in general. He looked bigger by doing so.

My suggestion: pick up the phone and call McCain. It is a gracious gesture that will charm your supporters and disarm your adversaries. If you want to erase the impact of the McCain imbroglio, just pick up the phone and call him. Say you are sorry you reacted without thought. Make a kind gesture. Your polls will skyrocket. Bottom line: if you pick up the phone, the McCain exchange could become a winner. If you fail to pick up the phone your candidacy could be impaired more than you realize.

Right now you are playing defense. And you will be on defense as long as the media can keep the McCain ringer around your neck. A simple phone call and a gracious conversation can make it all go away. You started the process on the O’Reilly Factor. Take the next step and make the call. You will be glad you did.

  1. Don’t betray the faith of those who put their trust in you

Finally, you and I know that millions of Americans are beginning to put their faith and trust in you. Please do not betray them. Many loyal, hard-working Americans have been disappointed by the political process, by the scripted nature of presidential campaigns, by the governmental process in Washington, and by the diminution of America’s greatness due to the self-inflicted errors of our leaders.

Winning a nomination or winning the presidency is no easy task. There is no shame in trying and not succeeding. But if you run in a way that leaves a bad taste, or embarrasses you and allows the media to claim a “victory” in defeating you, then you will have breached trust with those many Americans who are desperate for a real change in Washington.

If you run an honorable and competent campaign, even one characterized by hard blows at your opponents, you will gain and retain the trust of the American people and ultimately you will strengthen, not undermine, the political process.

But if you run a campaign that is not honorable, then you will have left a bitter taste in the mouths of millions of Americans and contribute to the cynicism they feel towards our government and leaders. Don’t do it.

Use your God-given talents to lead our politics in a positive direction the same way you have led in business. You are not a perfect person, but you are an honorable person; bring honor to the presidential campaign and you will cap a successful career in the private sector with a genuine and even monumental contribution to the public arena. Run as an honorable man and you might even win. Without honor there is no hope of victory. With honor and decency you might be surprised to find yourself as “President Trump.”

I’ll have more to say about your campaign in the days ahead.

Sincerely,

Andy

Chicago News Conference: Federal judge in Dennis Hastert case partially agrees with Andy Martin

Conservative New Hampshire Republican Party activist and law professor Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference Thursday, June 11th to discuss his efforts to have Judge Thomas Durkin recused from the case of former Speaker Dennis Hastert. Andy originally exposed Speaker Hastert’s homosexual situation in 2010. Judge Durkin agreed with the claims made in Andy’s prior letter to the judge (the original letter is reflected on the docket sheet) concerning the appearance of bias. Andy is now asking the judge not to allow Hastert and the U. S. Attorney to “waive” the admitted appearance of bias. Andy’s latest letter to Judge Durkin follows below.

Hon. Thomas M. Durkin

U.S. District Judge

219 S. Dearborn

Chicago, IL 60604

Re: U.S. v. Hastert, 1:15-cr-00315-1

Recusal of the Court for appearance of bias

Dear Judge Durkin:

I am following up on my prior letter asking the Court to recuse itself due to the appearance of bias.

I was gratified to see that you agreed with me, that there is indeed an appearance of bias in the eyes of a reasonable person concerning your participation in the current case, when a judge who has previously contributed to the campaign account of a defendant is subsequently assigned to hear a case involving that defendant.

By seeking to have you recused I mean no disrespect. Nevertheless, I believe recusal is mandated, not discretionary based on a potential “waiver” by counsel of the appearance issue.

By way of introduction, I have prior experience challenging judges for bias involving campaign contributions, as well as seeking to be heard as a representative of the broader public interest in contravention of the U. S. Attorney and attorneys for criminal defendants.

In 1978 I exposed that Peoria U. S. District Judge Robert Morgan (as I remember the name) had made a campaign contribution to Senator Charles Percy. Judge Morgan was very irritated when I exposed his contribution because his name was on a supposedly “secret” list of contributors to Senator Percy. The judge conceded the appearance of bias and recused himself.

The Seventh Circuit once wrote an opinion reciting my “legion” of battles with district judges over ethical lapses on the federal bench (the opinion reversed a district judge).

In a more apropos case in 1978, I appeared before U. S. District Judge (now circuit judge) Joel Flaum in a criminal case involving (don’t hold me to the exact names) Tom Bowler and the Brighton-Krug Construction Company. The U. S. Attorney and defendants’ counsel had negotiated a plea agreement, involving a nolo plea that would have negated any use of the plea in subsequent civil litigation.

Despite being somewhat troubled, Judge Flaum agreed with me, allowed me to be heard, and I proceeded to explain why the plea agreement was a bad deal for the public interest. Judge Flaum rejected the plea agreement, the defendants went to trial, they were convicted and a critical arm of the (original) Daley Machine organization was dismembered. As a result of my efforts taxpayers made a significant recovery.

So I go back a long way in seeking to hold federal judges to the highest standards involving the law concerning any appearance of partiality or impropriety regarding the reaction of a “reasonable” member of our society.

I would respectfully request that you follow Judge Flaum’s approach and allow me to be heard in this matter. There is no question that whatever “deal” Speaker Hastert receives from the Court, most people will feel he got off lightly. Mr. Hastert, moreover, is no ordinary defendant; otherwise I would not be seeking to hold you to the punctilio of the law.

I can also cite you chapter and verse when the supposedly neutral assignment “wheel” has been manipulated to steer cases to biased judges. Over the decades federal court has not been immune from political corruption.

Since I first walked into 219 S. Dearborn exactly fifty years ago this month, in June, 1965, my commitment has always been to the public interest.

Fighting for the amorphous rights of the public often encourages others, particularly our highly cynical media in Chicago, to ridicule my legal positions or to accuse me of being on a fool’s errand. But in the sweep of half a century, very few of my predictions, pronouncements or legal positions have been proven unfounded.

I exposed Speaker Hastert’s homosexuality in 2010, as my public blog postings confirm.[1] The media attacked me in 2010 for telling the truth about Speaker Hastert and Mark Kirk. But as you can now see, in due course I was vindicated.

I continue my corruption-fighting efforts with unabated vigor after half a century of devotion to the public interest.

I am flying to Chicago Thursday to lay a foundation for challenging any decision by Your Honor to remain in the case. I earnestly feel that you should not allow your prior contributions to become a distraction involving the Speaker’s prosecution. And while I am aware that judges occasionally let defendants waive conflicts arising out of combined representation, I am not aware of any high-profile case where, once a judge acknowledges that the reasonable person standard applies and that the appearance of bias is present, that counsel may waive that bias.

Defendants have a right to a fair and impartial trial. But so does the general public. The best approach would be for a judge from outside the Northern District to be appointed to sit, but I do not expect that to happen. Given your own prior relationship with the defendant, I respectfully believe that recusal is not discretionary and may not be waived by the parties.

I have emailed a copy of this letter to both the U. S. Attorney’s office and Defendant Hastert’s counsel (see below).

Respectfully submitted,

ANDY MARTIN

New Hampshire News Conference: Conservative blogger Andy Martin seeks Hastert victim files (FOIA)

New Hampshire corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a Manchester, NH news conference Sunday, June 7th to announce he has asked the U. S. Department of Justice to release the complete file on former Speaker Dennis Hastert’s victims. “I have previously disclosed the hypersexualized environment in the Speaker’s Office in Washington,” Andy says. “Representatives Mark Kirk (now a Senator) and Mark Foley were ‘regulars’ with Speaker Hastert. But what Hastert did as an adult, with other adults, is his business and their business. I completely respect the right to privacy of consenting adults, particularly since Hastert is no longer in office. What Hastert did as a school teacher and coach, is our business, the people’s business. The Department of Justice should release the full file on Hastert’s victims and do so immediately. I have filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking full disclosure.”

Andy says the federal government should not conceal vital information about the former U. S. House Speaker

(Manchester, NH) (June 7, 2015) Corruption-fighter Andy Martin, who first exposed the homosexuality aspect of the accusations against Dennis Hastert and has been driving reporting on the scandal since then, will hold a Manchester, New Hampshire news conference today, Sunday, June 7th to announce he has filed a Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) request with the U.S. Department of Justice asking that all of the files concerning former Speaker Dennis Hastert’s victims be released.

“We now know of apparently three victims: (1) individual A; (2) Steve Reinboldt (see link below); (3) the person whose family reported the abuse to Representative Mel Watt. Experience tells us there may be many more victims. Given Dennis Hastert’s important role in the U. S. Congress the public has a right to know what the Department of Justice knows about Hastert’s  history as a predator. Right now all we have is endless speculation.

Dear FOIA Staff:

I would like to formally lodge a FOIA request for any and all information concerning the identity of “Individual A” in the above case, as well as the identities of any other individuals, in Illinois prior to 1990, excluding the Defendant, who are part of the investigation or file in the above case.

Since Individual A is apparently not being prosecuted, and there is no ongoing investigation about him or her, I believe that FOIA mandates release of any identifying information about Individual A as well as other individuals who were identified and became part of the file concerning the Defendant’s actions in Illinois prior to 1990.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Respectfully submitted,

New York News Conference: Conservative blogger Andy Martin demands that the Chicago federal judge in Hastert case step down

Illinois political expert and Chicago corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a New York City news conference today, Thursday June 4th to announce he has asked Chicago federal judge Thomas Durkin to step down in the case of former U. S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert. Durkin made two (2) campaign contributions to Hastert’s prior campaigns. “Chicago was recently voted America’s most corrupt city and the federal courts are no exception. They are routinely manipulated behind the scenes. Judge Durkin made two campaign contributions to Hastert’s earlier campaigns. The appearance of public integrity mandates that Durkin step down in Hastert’s case. The case is taking on bizarre overtones, in which Durkin may have had a hand. A week after being indicted, the online docket sheet (as of Wednesday night) still shows no attorney for Hastert. Hastert is certainly taking the criminal charges very casually. The American people have a right to an honest proceeding, not one governed by the “ancient common law writ of ‘fixicatus’ in Chicago courts.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Attention Illinois, Washington, New York, National daybook/assignment editors

 

Announcement of New York City news conference Thursday June 4th

 

Conservative columnist and Republican Party maverick – and long-time Illinois crime fighter – Andy Martin will announce he has asked the Chicago federal judge assigned to Dennis Hastert’s criminal case to step down because of the appearance of bias

 

Andy says the fact that the federal judge, while still in private practice, made campaign contributions to two of Hastert’s campaigns destroys the appearance of integrity and impartiality

 

“Chicago was recently voted – again – the nation’s most corrupt city, and the federal courts are no exception,” Andy says

 

A “Battle of the law professors” breaks out over the federal judge’s conflicts in the Hastert case

 

In addition to Thursday’s new conference, Andy has also scheduled a “bunker buster” news conference in Chicago for Thursday June 11th

 

(Chicago) (June 4, 2015) Long-time Illinois and Chicago corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a New York City news conference today, Thursday, June 4th to announce he has asked the Chicago federal judge in former U. S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s criminal case to step down. Judge Thomas Durkin made two (2) campaign contributions to Hastert’s campaigns while Durkin was still a private attorney. [A copy of Andy’s letter to the judge is available upon request.]

Although Durkin was appointed by President Obama, Andy says that Durkin was probably promoted for the federal appointment by a Hastert crony, “closeted” U. S. Senator Mark Kirk. Kirk and Senator Dick Durbin have shared appointments to the federal courts.

Andy is due back in Chicago next week.

“Tom Durkin may be as pure as the driven snow,” Andy charges. “But, to mix a metaphor, the tablecloth of justice is irreparably soiled by the appearance of impropriety in having Hastert’s case heard by a crony of Mark Kirk, who was linked to the homosexual shenanigans in Hastert’s congressional office.

“I strongly disagree with NYU law professor Stephen Gillers that it is ‘ok’ for a federal judge to hear a criminal case where he has previously made a campaign contribution to the defendant [see politico.com link blow]. As an adjunct professor of law, I am confident that a criminal case is not, as Gillers suggests, a private lawsuit where the wishes of the parties prevail and where they can waive ‘conflicts.’ Rather a criminal case is quintessentially a public proceeding in which the public has an overriding interest in seeing that justice is administered without favor. Gillers is just flat wrong.

“This year I ‘celebrate,’ if that is the term, fifty (50) years of corruption fighting work in Chicago and Illinois, and national politics. I went to the Illinois General Assembly in 1965, and later that summer went to Capitol Hill to research a thesis on U.S. Senate rules and procedures.

“If you had told me fifty years ago that half a century later I would still be standing up against corrupt federal judges and rigged criminal cases in Chicago, I would have said ‘no way.’ I laid the groundwork for Operation Greylord, which exposed corruption in the courts, and I helped send mobsters and Daley Machine thugs to federal prison. But even though I left Chicago years ago, I promised to keep an anti-corruption presence in the city and state. I think I coined the term ‘ancient common law writ of fixicatus’ to describe the way justice was and still is ‘fixed’ in federal and state courts.

“I have advised the judge that there are a number of avenues open to me to challenge him if he tries to stay in the case, including a petition for mandamus in the Court of Appeals and a request to the Judicial Council.

“You can already see the way Durkin is favoring Hastert and allowing Hastert to treat a criminal indictment as a light matter. Wednesday night (June 3rd) I checked the online docket for the federal court. Despite a published report that Hastert has an attorney, the online docket sheet still shows no appearance of counsel for Hastert. Have you ever heard of a federal criminal defendant who, a week after being indicted, still has no attorney and the judge simply extends the arraignment date? Not often.

“At least one Illinois newspaper shares my concerns (see link below)

“Adding to my concerns, that Hastert is already getting special treatment from Judge Durkin, is that I know why Durkin is coddling Hastert. Durkin doesn’t want to irritate the senators, who could nominate him for a promotion to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. That’s the way the judicial game, and the political game is played in Chicago.

“I have been fighting corruption for half a century and as my latest efforts reflect my energy and my commitment to public integrity and justice are undiminished. Durkin must go. As for ‘perfesser’ Gillers, he needs to take a refresher course in judicial ethics.

New York News Conference: Conservative blogger Andy Martin on former Speaker Dennis Hastert’s secret sex life

Illinois political expert and Chicago corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a New York City news conference today, Tuesday June 2nd to ridicule Washington and Illinois politicians, Senator Mark Kirk and the news media in Chicago and Washington for expressing “shock” and “surprise” at the sexual misconduct allegations against former U. S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert. “What a bunch of two-faced, bald-faced liars,” Andy says. “Dennis Hastert’s peculiar sexual attitudes were well-known in both Washington and Illinois. Closeted homosexuals such as Mark Kirk are running for cover now that the cover has been pulled back from the bizarre manner in which Kirk, former rep. Mark Foley and Hastert’s Speaker’s office were managed,” Andy says. “Kirk continues to live a lie and Chicago and Washington’s news media ‘enable’ Kirk and the media to pretend shock and surprise when they were active participants in Hastert’s unusual office management practices and are participants in Kirk’s current pretenses.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Attention Illinois, Washington, New York, National daybook/assignment editors

 

Announcement of New York City news conference Tuesday June 2nd

 

Conservative columnist and Republican Party maverick Andy Martin explain why Senator Mark Kirk, Illinois Republicans and the media are lying through their teeth when they express “shock” and “surprise” at the disclosures about Dennis Hastert’s prior sexual misconduct.

 

Andy says the Hastert sex scandal comes as no surprise to anyone who was active in Illinois Republican Party politics or Washington, DC media

 

 

“As a result of the Hastert sex scandal Mark Kirk’s political career is almost certainly over,” Andy says

 

In addition to Tuesday’s new conference, Andy has also scheduled a “bunker buster” news conference in Chicago for Thursday June 11th

 

(Chicago) (June 2, 2015) Conservative columnist and corruption investigator Andy Martin will hold a New York City news conference today, Tuesday, June 2nd to ridicule Senator Mark Kirk, the Illinois Republican party’s leadership and news media in Chicago and Washington for pretending “shock” and “surprise” at the sexual misconduct allegations concerning former U. S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert.

“Speaker Hastert’s peculiar sexual proclivities were well known in Illinois and Washington,” Andy says. “The Speaker’s office was an employment bureau for young homosexuals. The Speaker’s office was also a clubhouse for homosexuals on Capitol Hill such as Mark Kirk and Mark Foley.

“Another blogger detailed the homosexuality of the Speaker’s office almost a decade ago [see link below].

“So why are Illinois Republican leaders and ‘the media’ lying to voters and readers, listeners and viewers, and feigning shock and surprise? There has been a massive media protection racket to shield closeted individuals from disclosure, even when they lied to the public as Kirk did in 2010 when he was confronted by taped reports on the Internet posted by Jack Roeser that claimed Kirk was a homosexual. [Andy disclosed that Roeser had posted Roeser’s tapes.] After denying his sexual orientation, Kirk was exposed in June, 2010 by Mike Rogers, a well-known gay rights activist who made a practice of exposing closeted politicians. Was Mike Rogers lying about Kirk? [See links below]

“Look at the old blog posting from 2006: the writer discloses some of the homosexuals working in Hastert’s office.

“It is sheer hypocrisy for Republican leaders and media types to keep lying to the public about their lack of knowledge concerning Hastert’s behavior, or Kirk’s. Not only was Hastert abusive while still a high school teacher, he continued to use his Speaker’s office as a Grand Central Station for homosexuals.

“I have nothing against individuals who are born homosexual; they are entitled to the same dignity and respect as any other person. But I do have concerns about closeted individuals such as Kirk and Hastert who can be blackmailed and ‘outed’ by people such as Rogers and Hastert’s blackmailer who know the truth and are seek to profit from exposing the lies being fed to the public. Hastert’s blackmailer was only interested in money. What if he had been interested in compromising national security, or betraying the United States? How far would Hastert or Kirk go or have gone to protect their secret sex life?

“The secret sex life of Dennis Hastert is nothing new, and anyone who claims he or she is shocked or surprised is a complete and shameless liar, Mark Kirk being the most shameless and complete liar in the U. S. Senate.”

New Hampshire blogger Andy Martin scoops Chicago, US media on Dennis Hastert sex scandal

Illinois political expert and Chicago corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a telephone news conference Saturday, May 30th to explain why he thinks the Hastert sex scandal could bring down the Illinois Republican Party and defeat “closeted” Senator Mark Kirk for reelection. “Kirk’s public response to the exposure of Dennis Hastert was insincere, fraudulent and self-defeating,” Andy says. “The Hastert sex scandal is about much, much more than just Denny Hastert’s secret life. The ‘conspiracy of silence’ which has existed about the secret lives of Dennis Hastert, Mark Kirk and others is coming undone.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Attention Illinois, Washington, New York, National daybook/assignment editors

 

Announcement of telephone news conference Saturday May 30

 

Conservative columnist and Republican Party maverick Andy Martin scooped both Chicago and national media by being the first to expose the details of the Hastert sex scandal

 

Andy says Hastert sex scandal could bring down Illinois Republican Party, affect 2016 Illinois elections

 

Andy adds to a long line of excusive scoops about corruption in Illinois and national politics

 

“As a result of the Hastert sex scandal Mark Kirk’s political career is over,” Andy says “I promise you”

 

In addition to Saturday’s new conference, Andy has also scheduled a “bunker buster” news conference for Thursday June 11th

 

(Chicago) (May 30, 2015) Conservative columnist and corruption investigator Andy Martin will hold a telephone news conference Saturday, May 30th to explain the broader significance of the Hastert sex scandal and why Andy thinks the disclosures about Hastert could bring down the Illinois Republican Party. On Friday Andy added to a long line of Illinois and national scoops on Illinois corruption and sex scandals. In 1969 Andy was a small part of a team that exposed two Illinois Supreme Court judges for taking bank stock bribes. In 2004 Andy was the first to expose Barack Obama as a political fraud. In 2008 Andy’s book, “Obama: The Man Behind the Mask,” predicted Obama would be unable to perform as president and would be a disastrous leader. In 2010 Andy exposed [now] Senator Mark Kirk as a military fraud, and pointed to Internet recordings by Republican activist Jack Roeser that accused Kirk of being a homosexual (copies of the Roeser tape available on request).

Saturday Andy will place the Hastert sex scandal in political context as he continues to shame Chicago’s useless and corrupt mainstream media and beat them to the punch with new insight on the significance of the Hastert sex scandal.

Today Andy has extended his corruption fighting expertise to his new home in New Hampshire, as he continues to track and fight corruption cases from Hawai’i to New Hampshire.

“In 2016 I am committed to two (2) projects: seeing that Jeb Bush is denied the Republican Party’s presidential nomination and ensuring that Mark Kirk is defeated for election. The Hastert scandal is going to prove lethal to Kirk.

In addition to Saturday’s news conference Andy has scheduled a “bunker buster” Chicago news conference for June 11th at his Chicago crime-fighting headquarters. Although Andy now lives in New Hampshire he continues to monitor major corruption cases in Chicago and Illinois. This week, Chicago was again voted “America’s most corrupt city.” “They still need me,” Andy says.
