New York News Conference: Corruption fighter Andy Martin seeks special prosecutor in Hillary Clinton email probe

Corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a New York news conference Thursday, March 5th to ask U. S. Attorney General Eric holder to investigate the Hillary Clinton email scandal. “This scandal is not going away,” Andy says. “Clinton’s behavior in creating a secret email system at her home in New York while she was serving in Washington, DC is emblematic of the kind of president she would be, someone even more lawless than President Barack Obama. Clinton undeniably obstructed implementation of the Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”). FOIA disclosure decisions are made by government employees, not by Clinton’s private henchmen. There is an overwhelming inference that she violated national security laws as well as compromising national security by using a crude email system that could be compromised or hacked by foreign intelligence services. I think Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is effectively over. To quote boxer Joe Louis, Clinton can ‘run,’ but she can’t hide. Her behavior as Secretary of State is clearly becoming one of the most self-destructive periods of service of any recent cabinet officer. Democratic Party leaders are about to have a massive panic attack. If she does run, Clinton will be a drag on the entire ticket.” Andy is a nationally recognized expert in cyber law and cyberspace (see http://www.AndyMartin.com).

Re: Appointment of Special Counsel Re Hillary Clinton

Dear General Holder:

I am writing to strongly urge you to appoint an independent special counsel to investigate the email practices of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

There has been a great deal of confusion generated by the media concerning the use of “personal email accounts” by Clinton as well as other federal officials. Many people have “personal” email accounts. In my own case I use AOL because of special considerations. Providers such as google.com and usa.net also offer email addresses. What all of these “personal” email accounts have in common is that they are all hosted by recognized Internet firms.

Corporations and the federal government create their own email clients in order to gain greater internal control of email sending, receiving and storage.

The Clinton email apparatus is the most bizarre and conspiratorial email setup I have ever seen. Because I have participated in government fraud and corruption investigations going back to the 1960’s, my experience with such matters is unusually extensive.

Secretary Clinton went to great lengths to privatize the record of emails during her government service. She wasn’t just using a “personal account.” She created her own Internet operation, with a server apparently located in her home in New York.

Circumstantial evidence is always probative to show intent. The circumstantial evidence in Secretary Clinton’s case is of someone going to great lengths to create a secret email operation before entering government service. Her overall and ongoing behavior was legally questionable and very probably constituted a series of criminal acts.

Clinton defenders have pointed to recent statutory amendments as exculpating her from criminal liability. But the recent statutory amendments are irrelevant to her actions. Rather, numerous congressional committees were seeking access to Clinton’s records, and there was a public concern as to why none of her emails were available. Now we know why. She had secreted her email operations in her own home, effectively depriving the Department of State of any direct access to or control of those emails without explicit cooperation from Clinton operatives. That is not the way our government works.

So why a special counsel? Because the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) certainly came into contact with Clinton’s peculiar email apparatus. State and DOJ work closely together. Clinton’s email shenanigans were going on for four (4) years. Did no one at DOJ notice? Was no one tipped off? Likewise, there may be more secret government-related emails stored in Clinton Foundation servers. Hillary Clinton’s data breach is the most serous and bizarre since email came into general federal government use.

In addition, since she never had any Department of State email address, some of her email must of necessity have transmitted classified information. Former General David Petraeus recently pleaded guilty to the same kind of misuse of classified information. Clinton clearly violated a federal statute in using her own private personal property as a vehicle to conduct government business.

I urge you to authorize the FBI to take immediate possession of all of Clinton’s email records, servers and internet apparatus and equipment, as well as to examine all Clinton Foundation Internet operations and servers for related information.

To allow Secretary Clinton to operate her own secret government-within-a-government email system, particularly at a time when her affiliated entities were collecting cash from foreign entities, makes a mockery of the federal government and humiliates the DOJ if the DOJ stands mute and does nothing. Given the overwhelming appearance of impropriety on the Secretary’s part, and the obvious conflicts of interest in having DOJ investigate a senior cabinet officer, only an independent special counsel can satisfy the appearance of justice.

Respectfully submitted,

ANDY MARTIN

Andy Martin asks: Does America want Columba Bush, an uneducated Mexican peasant, as First Lady in the White House?

New Hampshire Republican Party maverick Andy Martin met Jeb Bush 26 years ago. Unlike national media that have little background knowledge of Jeb Bush’s earlier life in Miami and Tallahassee, Andy has been a colorful thorn in Jeb’s side for over twenty years (see “history” links below). Andy helped lead clandestine efforts to defeat Bush for Governor in 1994. (Bush has also retaliated against Andy.) In 2015 Andy continues his efforts to see that Jeb Bush is deprived of the 2016 presidential nomination. Today Andy asks: Does America really want an uneducated Mexican peasant as First Lady in the White House? Andy explores Jeb Bush’s “marriage,” and promises new disclosures in the days ahead. “Columba Bush may be the most backward and ignorant potential First Lady in decades,” Andy says (see “Columba” links below). “There are many highly educated and vibrant Latinas in America today. Columba Bush is not one of them.” Andy Martin, who successfully led the fight to expose Barack Obama as a fraud now trains his sights on Jeb Bush.

Andy Martin questions whether the American people want an uneducated Mexican peasant as their first Lady in the White House

Andy says Jeb Bush’s wife, Columba Bush, might become a serious liability as the presidential campaign comes into closer focus

Andy says that as First Lady Columba Bush could not hide in the White House, watching Mexican soap operas all day, every day

Andy says there is no evidence that Columba Bush has ever manifested any interest improving herself since Jeb met the 17 year-old campesina decades ago

(Manchester, NH) (March 2, 2015) Let me be blunt: Does America really want to elevate Jeb Bush’s bizarre and dysfunctional family into the White House? Or as Rudy Giuliani might say somewhat less diplomatically, “Does America really want an uneducated Mexican peasant as First Lady in the White House?” The answer should be a resounding “no.”

What does America really know about Jeb Bush’s family? Does it matter what his family life is? The answer: American knows almost nothing about Jeb’s bizarre family; and his family life matters very much, both on the campaign trail and potentially in the White House. How can a political party based on “family values” ignore the strange relationships in Jeb Bush’s background?

Recently, liberal media have ridiculed Governor Scott Walker because he did not complete college and obtain a degree. For at least fifty years there has been an implicit understanding that presidents ought to graduate from college. (In my opinion, Walker clearly meets the test, but that is a column for another day.) Columba Bush, on the other hand, is the most bizarre and least educated potential First Lady in recent history (see “Columba” links below). That’s a fact.

Jacqueline Kennedy was the first modern-era First Lady. No one has approached Jacqueline’s glamour since then, but generally speaking First Ladies are expected to be interesting, educated and social. They are usually assets on the campaign trail and helpmates in the presidency.

Jeb Bush’s wife, Columba Bush, is a complete zero.

The original “cover story” was that Columba Bush came from an affluent Mexican family. That turned out to be another Bush Family lie. Today the truth has been disclosed: Columba was a Mexican peasant, her dad a migrant worker.

Let me be clear: there is nothing wrong with coming into life as an uneducated peasant. Many people have risen from humble origins to great heights. Many migrant workers’ children have achieved greatness in the USA. Rather, my concerns are focused on what Columba Bush has done since she became part of the “Bush Family.”

Despite being married for decades, and having access to extensive Spanish-language educational resources in Miami, Columba Bush has never manifested any interest in furthering her education. Whether she even has a high school diploma is open to question. Columba Bush would be the most uneducated First Lady in the modern era.

Bush Family Values #1 A marriage, or “a marriage”

Americans have had painful national experiences with dysfunctional marriages in the White House. Bill Clinton disgraced the nation by being a sexual predator there. It is obvious that the Clintons’ “marriage” had and has nothing to do with a marital environment and is solely based on their mutual addiction to power and money. Jeb Bush may have a similar situation.

When Bush was the governor of Florida, he lived in Tallahassee, alone almost all the time. Columba Bush lived in Miami, often sitting in front of her TV watching Mexican soap operas every day and bordering on being a recluse. So what did Jeb do for “entertainment” in the governor’s mansion? We’ll have further stories on his personal life in Tallahassee and along the campaign trail.

Jeb and Columba Bush do not appear to have a marriage as the term is commonly understood. Their marriage is a “marriage” in name only. They are a throwback to an earlier era in our history when, when one of the spouses was a Roman Catholic and refused to divorce the other spouse (Jeb later converted to Roman Catholicism), the partners stayed married in name only. If Bush advances in the presidential primaries Americans are in danger of voting for a slick politician with a phony marriage that is primarily maintained for purposes of deceiving the public.

Bush Family Values #2 How could a full-time parent be so out of touch?

One of Jeb Bush’s sons was a stalker. His daughter became a drug addict. Even assuming Columba Bush avoided a public career to be a stay-at-home mom, how could someone staying at home be so out of touch with her children? Columba claimed to be “fighting drugs” in public while, at home, her daughter Noelle was addicted to prescription medication. And the stalker son? When did Jeb have “the talk” with his son and tell him that stalking women was a no-no? Probably never. There is a massive disconnect between what the Bushes say in public and the way they live their lives at “home.”

Bush family values #3 Is Columba the most uneducated major spouse?

Returning to Columba Bush’s lack of education, it is truly amazing that after meeting Jeb as a teenager, Columba Bush has lived out over four decades of her life mostly sitting in front of a TV set watching Mexican soap operas instead of aspiring to be a more educated spouse and woman. I’m not sure how far back we have to go to find a potential First Lady who is as ignorant as Columba, who apparently never even attempted college and may not have even graduated from high school or the Mexican equivalent (GED, anyone?”).

What role model did Jeb’s children have? A mother who stayed home watching foreign TV, someone whose lifestyle bordered on depression. Someone who apparently did not have the slightest interest in educating herself to match the high-profile and high-intensity career of her husband. Someone who didn’t even want to improve her command of the English language.

Even if she was only an ignorant or teenage campesina when Jeb Bush met her, there is no evidence that in the following decades Columba Bush has done anything to expand her education or language skills.

Put another way, what kind of a family man and husband has Jeb Bush been when there is no evidence he has motivated or nurtured or encouraged his wife to better herself? Jeb Bush acts like a man who is trapped in a bad marriage or non-marriage, who stays hitched because his wife refuses to give him a divorce and because a divorce might undermine his political career. Is this what the American people want as a “First Family” in 2017?

How has Jeb met his need for love and affection given his apparently loveless marriage? We are working on a major story about “The Secret Life of Jeb Bush.”

And so I am left with an obvious question: how far will Jeb Bush go to hide his wife in 2016? Will she be allowed to speak? At the Republican National Convention? (She was in Chicago recently for a “foreign policy” speech but said noting.)

Florida is spread out, with Tallahassee hundreds of miles from Miami. A governor in Tallahassee could “hide” his spouse and that absence might be noticed but not spoken of or written about by the remaining shards of the Florida press. But being First Lady in the White House is public role of a different magnitude. A First Lady cannot hide for weeks at a time, watching Mexican TV soap operas all day every day.

Disclaimer: Andy Martin first met Jeb Bush in 1989. Andy has closely followed Jeb’s activity since then. In 1993 Andy began exposing Jeb’s “rent seeking” (where a member of a prominent political family trades on his or her “connections” to extract payments from people seeking favors from their relatives). Andy is strongly opposed to Jeb’s candidacy for president.

Obama author and expert Andy Martin continues to search for the truth: Is Barack Obama a Muslim? A Christian?

Almost eleven years ago Andy Martin posted an article and conducted news conferences that have become a part of American history: Andy said that based on his research, then-U. S. Senate candidate Barack Obama was a Muslim (see [5] below). Andy’s original research was based on a series of facts, all of which were subsequently confirmed by other media. Nevertheless, eleven years later doubts about Obama’s religion still resonate, most recently when putative presidential candidate Governor Scott Walker was asked by the Washington Post whether Obama is a Christian. Walker’s equivocal answer prompted yet another round of liberal attacks. In today’s column Andy, also a former theology student, provides a new round of analysis explaining why there is ongoing confusion about Obama’s religious beliefs. The controversy will no doubt continue to rage on. Andy still adheres to his now decade-long standard investigative Obama: find the facts, search for the truth. We hope you will agree.

Andy Martin says that his original 2004 article claiming Barack Obama is a Muslim is still correct as a statement of Islamic theology

Andy says that he accepts Obama’s profession of Christianity but that the historical record remains opaque on how and when Obama formally became a Christian, if ever

Andy’s unique contribution to American history continues to resonate through political and media establishments.

Andy says he and Obama have become linked in American history, forever

(New York, NY) (February 26, 2015)

Last week, Governor Scott Walker was asked by my former editor at the Daily Illini, Dan Balz, if President Barack Obama is a Christian (see link [1] below). Walker’s reply triggered a new firestorm of criticism and controversy concerning Obama’s religion. One especially thoughtful and perceptive column I recommend appeared in the Boston Globe by Jeff Jacoby (see link [2] below).

I.

The Background concerning Obama’s or any candidate’s religion

President Barack Obama says he is a Christian. Many Americans either disagree with that assertion or express doubts. The liberal media establishment uses the disputed matter of Obama’s religion as a bludgeon with which to beat Republicans and conservatives.

What propelled me to question Obama’s origins? I had gone to the Illinois General Assembly as an intern. Decades later, Obama appeared as the state senator from Hyde Park, a neighborhood I knew well. So I knew Obama as a state senator in Springfield and had an “insider’s” insight into questions about him that were whispered about but which were never documented or researched.

I began the process of independent scholarly research because Chicago’s media were so infatuated with being a part of Obama’s “history” that local media abandoned any semblance of impartiality or professionalism about their hometown presidential candidate.

In August, 2004 while Obama was still a senate candidate I began with an article and conducted news conference which became part of American history. I made numerous assertions — all of which were ridiculed or ignored in 2004 — and all of which have ultimately proven to be correct. In particular, I focused attention on Obama’s family history as a Muslim.

I will be heading to Honolulu in May (2015) for yet another investigative trip concerning Obama’s history. Often I am asked, “Why bother, he will never be a candidate again?” But Obama will always be a part of our history. The disaster he is likely to leave in the wake of his presidency will make Obama an extremely controversial person in our national history. And much remains to be discovered about Obama’s hidden past. Just one example: how was Obama, a mediocre student, from an impecunious family, admitted to Occidental College? Who paid the Occidental bills for Obama’s attendance at a private institution, and what was the basis of his application to be admitted?

I believe that even today we have only scratched the surface concerning Obama’s family secrets. In 2008 I published the theory (not as an assertion of fact) that, based on my research in Hawai’i, Frank Marshall Davis was the president’s biological father. The DNA evidence which exists has yet to be connected; but my 2008 claim has now become part of the virtual Obama canon for conservatives.

My 2004 release questioning Obama’s religion and also exposing his “autobiography” as a fraud, continue to generate massive controversy. It is seldom that a historian, let alone a quotidian commentator such as myself, leaves such a mark on American history. But the Internet links below connect me to Obama, and link our names for eternity.

In light of the latest controversy over whether Obama is a Christian I am presenting my updated views and, of course, welcome your comments (and evidence if you have new information to provide me with).

I have always endeavored to maintain a measured and independent attitude towards Obama where my scholarly research is concerned. As a Republican, and partisan, I have come to intensely dislike Obama because of the damage he is doing to America both at home and abroad. But my personal feelings of antipathy have been walled off, to the fullest extent possible, from my scholarly inquiries into the president’s family history, religious history and educational history. I have a couple of interesting, long-delayed columns which I will try to get out in the next week, both of which will have controversial implications for my Obama oeuvre.

Before August, 2004 I was primarily known for my international commentary and expertise in Asia, the Middle East and points in between. Why I decided to research and expose Obama in August, 2004 I am still not sure. But I am sure my first column changed my life, just as I have had a significant influence on Obama’s life through my continuing questioning of his religious beliefs and other less visible aspects of his life story. Obama and I are far from the end of our journey together.

The claim by some that a candidate’s religion “doesn’t matter” and that we should only focus on “issues” is pure nonsense. Throughout history, but especially today in our media-saturated environment, people have always wanted to know the “inside” details about their leaders. What is different about Obama in the modern era is that unlike, for example, John F. Kennedy, where the gravity of his illnesses and the extent of his infidelities were concealed during his lifetime, doubts about Obama’s history have played out during his candidacy and presidency. The modern media world shines a very intense light on any and every aspect of a candidate’s life. The claim by some that we should only be interested or pursue “issues” advocated by a president, and ignore a president’s personal history, is ridiculous.

II.

The Generalities of Christianity

Christianity is not a religion with the formality of Judaism (where religion is passed through the mother) or Islam (where religion passes through the father). Anyone can say he or she is a Christian and essentially become one. In fact, we have a common refrain that someone has a “come to Jesus moment,” where someone is moved to accept Christ and profess that person’s new acceptance of Christianity. On a generalized basis, Obama must then be taken at his word, that he is a Christian. And, so, yes, today, Obama can and should be recognized as a Christian even if the formalities of his former religion, Islam, still attach to his life and bear witness to the conflicts between his public claims and private beliefs.

III.

The technicalities of Christianity

I studied to be a priest at the Institute of Theology at the [Episcopal] Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York (the Institute has since been discontinued). While as noted above anyone can claim he or she is a Christian, to formally become part of my denomination and other mainline Christian churches you must satisfy one crucial point of passage: Holy Baptism. It is the fact and act of baptism that that brings someone into the Christian church.

Obama has never said when or where he was baptized. I asked Trinity United Church of Christ for Obama’s baptismal information and the church refused to disclose that information. My guess (and I do not state this as a fact) is that Obama has never been baptized, and thus never formally became a Christian under the rules and rituals of either the United Church of Christ (Trinity United) or any other mainline denomination. The United Church of Christ emphasizes the importance of baptism (see [3] below). My own church makes a very clear statement about the significance of baptism (see [4] below).

The bottom line: we do not know if Obama has ever been baptized, and Trinity UCC refuses to say, sowing further doubts as to Obama’s religious identity.

IV.

Obama-the-Christian in Washington

Washington, DC has a very vibrant, historic African-American Christian tradition. After Obama was elected president Washington, DC’s African-American churches competed to see if one of them could recruit Obama as a member. He has never joined an African-American church in the nation’s capital. Obama has probably attended my own church, St. John’s Episcopal, across from the White House, more than any one the African churches. And even at St. John’s, Obama’s attendance is purely self-serving, perfunctory and ceremonial. When Obama feels he is trapped or cornered and under scrutiny I often predict that he will make a cameo appearance at St. John’s. I am seldom wrong. But he has no consistent pattern of worship in Washington. Does Obama’s lack of attendance resolve the underlying issue of his religious loyalty? No. Obama is not required to have a religion; he only professes to have one. But like other pieces of the puzzle, his non-attendance at church and his perfunctory practice of Christianity point in a certain direction.

V.

What makes a Muslim? What do Muslims themselves believe about President Obama’s religion?

A.

What makes a Muslim?

There is no doubt as to what or who makes a Muslim: the father. Islam is transferred to offspring through the father, a direct contravention of Judaism where the mother’s role is sacrosanct. What are the undisputed facts: (1) Obama’s grandfather was a devout convert to Islam. (2) Obama’s father was raised as a Muslim. (3) Despite efforts to deny Obama Senior’s Islamic religion, the father was buried in Kenya with a Muslim ritual. (4) Most of Obama’s half-siblings in Kenya today are Muslims. (I am ignoring for the moment my theory that Barack Obama, Senior is not President Obama’s biological father; that is a separate issue that remains to be proven.)

The bottom line: I was absolutely correct in 2004 to say Obama was a Muslim. Islam passed to him at birth through his putative father. He has never openly disavowed his birthright. And, unlike Christianity, with few barriers or conditions to the profession of Christianity, or exit from Christianity, Islam is not an easy religion to abandon. Someone who announces he or she is abandoning Islam can become subject to a fatwa for blasphemy and be sentenced to death.

B.

What do Muslims believe about Obama?

Over the years I have supported Palestinian nationalism and continue to do so today. I have many loyal readers and followers in the Middle East (both pro-Israel and pro-Palestine). My readers had a profound influence on my perception of Obama’s religion. When I started writing critical articles about Obama some of my friends and readers in the Middle East asked me to “go easy on Obama,” “because he is a Muslim.” “One of us.” Whatever Americans may believe, in the Middle East Obama is absolutely believed to be a Muslim and follower of Islam. In the Middle East and throughout the Islamic world Obama’s identification as a Muslim is not quite a “fact” but the widespread belief of adherents is very close to a “fact.” Muslims believe Obama is one of them.

VI.

What about Obama’s father and grandfather?

As I stated above, Obama’s grandfather was a convert to Islam (after abandoning Christianity). The Obama household into which President Obama’s father was born was strictly Muslim. President Obama’s father is alleged to have abandoned his birthright religion; clearly Obama’s father did not actively practice Islam while temporarily residing in the United States (not many people in any religion are active participants in their 20’s). But “abandoning” Islam is not a simple matter. There is no evidence in Kenya that Obama-the-father ever abandoned Islam. When he was killed in a car crash the president’s father was buried in a Muslim ceremony. Obama’s half-siblings are, as a group, primarily Muslims, another piece of circumstantial evidence in the overall puzzle.

Bottom line: Obama’s own professed family ties in Kenya all lead to Islam.

VII.

Will the “Is Obama a Christian/Muslim” debate ever end?

I first wrote about Obama’s religion in August 2004. Almost eleven years later the controversy rages, and mainstream media such as the Washington Post use Obama’s religion as a 2016 presidential candidate gotcha question. Will the controversy ever end? You be the judge. Does Obama want it to end? I am doubtful. Obama continues to stoke controversy about his religious beliefs by his relentless apologies for Islam, starting with his 2009 “apology tour” in Cairo. Obama’s bias-in-favor-of-Islam is so consistent his repetition becomes another piece of circumstantial evidence in Obama’s theology puzzle. Obama’s recent claims at the National Prayer Breakfast generated great controversy over his Islamic sympathies. His refusal to utter the words “radical Islam” are a continuing source of conflict.

We will no doubt have to wait for Obama to leave the White House to see if he ever again attends a Christian church, or any church, mosque or whatever. Until then, my original 2004 analysis remains definitive. There are still missing pieces in the Obama theology puzzle, but the overall picture is unavoidable. Obama was born a Muslim and has never openly disavowed his birth religion. He professes today to be a Christian; based on Christianity’s open standards his claim must be taken at face value. Game on.

New Hampshire conservative leader Andy Martin: CPAC and ACU should stop discriminating against Log Cabin Republicans

Independent New Hampshire Republican leader Andy Martin “comes out” in favor of allowing CPAC to allow full participation by Log Cabin Republicans and says the time has come for both conservative organizations and the Republican Party to remove any remaining barriers to welcoming gays in the party. “In New Hampshire we have an inclusive party, and no one doubts New Hampshire’s conservative credentials,” Andy says. “When CPAC refuses to allow a legitimate Republican Party organization to be a full participant they are not acting in a ‘conservative’ manner, they are engaging in liberal-style identity politics that we abhor and condemn. I urge CPAC to reconsider and to welcome the Log Cabin Republicans this week.”

Andy Martin says it is time for ACU to admit Log Cabin Republicans to full participation in CPAC

Andy says that the Republican Party must be open to all; the Republican Party and the conservative movement have their origins in human rights and the universal striving for human liberty and dignity

(New York, NY) (February 25, 2015) The American Conservative Union (“ACU”) sponsors an annual Conservative Political Action Conference (“CPAC”). Once again the ACU has refused to allow a Republican pro-gay organization, the Log Cabin Republicans (“LCR”) to participate in CPAC. I recognize that ACU has a right to decide whom to allow to participate in CPAC. But I urge the ACU to open CPAC to the LCR. The time to do so has arrived. LCR’s are good Republicans and brave human beings and they deserve encouragement.

I call on ACU and CPAC to end their discrimination against gays and specifically against LCR. Let me be explicit as to my views. Homosexuality is not a “lifestyle choice,” although gays have traditionally gathered together out of fear of discrimination and recrimination.

Homosexuality is ordained by God and determined at creation. I accept fully the testimonies of individuals who have stated they were aware of their sexual orientation as children. We engage in hypocrisy when we seek to exclude human beings based on their sexual orientation. As homosexuality has become more openly discussed, I have been surprised to see that so many of my friends have family members who have been hidden from sight because of their sexual orientation. Everyone has right to come out into the sunlight and be recognized and valued for who they are as human beings.

Like most people over the age of 50, I grew up in an environment where homosexual issues were treated very differently than they are today. But the very essence of political leadership is flexibility in response to changed conditions and changing social attitudes. The New Hampshire Republican Party is an inclusive Party. Gays are welcome to participate. The Republican Party has its origins in the struggle for human rights and national redemption in the 1850’s, and so should be particularly open to classes of persons who are the victims of discrimination. Republicans led the civil rights progress of the 1960’s.

While race and sexual identity are not exactly comparable, I believe that conservatives should welcome gays who are open about both their sexual orientation and conservative principles. As someone whom many people would identify as an Alpha male, I am cognizant I did not “earn” my sexuality. I inherited my genes and orientation. (I take a contrary position with regard to “closeted” gays such as Illinois U. S. Senator Mark Kirk, because I believe the act of closeting and denial is both politically and psychologically unhealthy. Kirk is a prime example of that confusion and conflict.)

The conservative movement should be focused on issues, not sexual orientation.

Show how about it CPAC? LCR’s are brave people. They have been open about their sexual identity, a status that in the past has not always received a welcoming embrace. The time for a change in attitudes is now. Change is not always easy; I know from personal experience. But change is essential if Republicans are to strive for majority status. Every American must join in the “war” to undo the damage inflicted on America by the very “inclusive” Barack Hussein Obama. (Obama has not only been inclusive as to sexual orientation; he has been especially “inclusive” in seeking to “include” our pocketbooks in his insatiable demand for higher taxes.)

LCR’s. Welcome.

Media and combat expert Andy Martin says Bill O’Reilly clearly exaggerated and inflated his “combat” and “war” experience

Media critic and war/military/intelligence expert Andy Martin says that Bill O’Reilly clearly inflated his “combat” or “war” credentials by claiming a civil disturbance in Buenos Aires was a combat or war situation. Andy wades into the O’Reilly/Mother Jones/CBS News/New York Times and Washington Post “conflation” over what Bill O’Reilly did in Argentina over thirty years ago. “Bill O’Reilly has shot himself in the foot,” Andy says. “Instead of ignoring Mother Jones, O’Reilly has opened up floodgates concerning how he has misrepresented his experiences during and after the Falklands Islands War.

Andy Martin says Bill O’Reilly clearly inflated and distorted and misrepresented O’Reilly’s “war” and “combat” credentials

Andy says that O’Reilly has opened up a mess that is of his own making, and O’Reilly is certain to be a loser when the exchange is over

(New York, NY) (February 23, 2015) Let me start with a disclaimer or series of disclaimers. I do not like Fox News. Fox News has treated me abysmally. I have every reason to dislike the place. I do like Bill O’Reilly’s show, watch it regularly and I think he does an excellent job of focusing on threats to our national security. So I bear Bill no personal animus or hostility.

But O’Reilly is clearly wrong in claiming he “covered a war” and saw “combat” in Argentina over thirty years ago.

If Bill had come to me, I would have offered some of my late Uncle Bill Vasiliou’s advice as to how to handle Mother Jones. But O’Reilly, pugilist that he is, has now waded into a battle with CBS News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and only incidentally Mother Jones.

One more disclaimer: Bill O’Reilly’s misconduct is not even remotely related to or on a par with Brian Williams’ misconduct at NBC News.

If O’Reilly had come to me for advice on how to handle Mother Jones, I would have proffered an aphorism from my late Uncle Bill Vasiliou, who schooled me on how to deal with such nonsense.

But O’Reilly is a pugilist. When attacked, he doubled down on his ridiculous claim that he was in combat, and is now dealing with a conflagration of his own making. O’Reilly is trying to bluster his way over the voices of his critics but he is doomed to failure. The match is no longer between Fox News and Mother Jones. CBS, the Times and Post level the playing field in this street fight.

First, in a generic sense O’Reilly was sent to Argentina to “cover a war.” The only problem was that you could not get to the war one from Argentina. Urban demonstrations such as O’Reilly claims to have covered are neither “combat” nor “war” as revived research concerning the aftermath of Argentina’s defeat is now confirming (see below).

O’Reilly’s ridiculous claim that he obtained the “greatest war film ever” is insulting to anyone’s intelligence who has any knowledge of real combat coverage and footage. I was in Viet-Nam, Cambodia, Laos, Iraq and other war zones. And I was actually out in the field in actual combat zones (pictures at AndyMartin.com). But I would never have considered a street demonstration in DaNang or Saigon a “combat” situation (at least not until the Tet Offensive or the final days when Saigon collapsed and fell to the North).

Is what O’Reilly is guilty of the same level of lying as Brian Williams? Absolutely not. Brian Williams lied to his audience this month. O’Reilly has inflated something which took place decades ago at CBS, long before he was hired by Fox News. So O’Reilly’s claim that the attack on him is a tit-for-tat for Williams is, if true, complete nonsense. O’Reilly was and is clear on that front.

But, as often happens, O’Reilly’s latest exaggerations and misrepresentations in defending himself against Mother Jones may have reopened the statute of limitations over a dispute concerning what happened 33 years ago. On that basis he may suffer some ignominy similar to Williams’. If O’Reilly had kept his mouth shut, that would have been the end of the flare up. By reclaiming and reviving his goofy exaggerations and self-inflated views of combat and war in Argentina over thirty years ago, O’Reilly may now be doing unnecessary, but now unavoidable, damage to his brand.

Next time, Bill, call me before you want to inflate your resume. My own Uncle Bill has the answer.

Does Barack Obama Love America? Rudy Giuliani has focused new attention on Andy Martin’s Hawai’i research

Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani touched off a firestorm when he claimed President Barack Obama does not love America. Giuliani is now in full retreat, shifting from clear prose to mumbled nonsense. Leftist media have excoriated Giuliani for impugning Obama. But Obama author, expert and investigator Andy Martin says Giuliani was right with his first set of remarks, and explains why. Even worse, Andy suggests that by their refusal to defend Giuliani, national Republicans are repeating their past mistakes from 2008 and 2012, and strongly suggesting Republicans could now proceed to fumble away the 2016 presidential election.

Andy Martin says Rudy Giuliani was right to question President Barack Obama’s love for America

Andy says Giuliani has now impeached Giuliani’s own remarks by trying to recharacterize what he said

New disclosures about David Axelrod’s family ties to the Communist Party USA add fuel to the Obama-is-a-socialist meme

(New York, NY) (February 23, 2015) Last week former mayor Rudy Giuliani created a firestorm by claiming Barack Obama does not love America and that Obama was raised differently from ordinary Americans (see link [1]). Giuliani’s remarks triggered a massive counterattack from the media left. Giuliani, after standing his ground on Fox News (see link [2] below) is now in full retreat (see link [3] below).

Over ten years ago I exposed Obama as a complete fraud (see [4] below). I have never had to take back a single word I have written about Obama’s family history.

Adding new concern about Obama’s loyalties, last weekend we learned his campaign manager David Axelrod came from a Communist Party USA household (see [5] below). Out of all the political consultants in the United States, Obama managed to find probably the only one with a communist pedigree.

Unfortunately, with his latest contradictory remarks, Giuliani has now made a mess of his own original commentary.

So what are the facts and what is the truth about Obama?

1. Over ten years ago I exposed that Obama was a political fraud. (see [4] below). I was heartened when Giuliani mentioned Frank Marshall Davis, whom I brought to national attention in October, 2008.

2. In February, 2007 I published a Psychological Profile of Barack Obama that clearly stated Obama has a weak personality and could not function under the stress of being president.

3. During the 2008 campaign John McCain’s “campaign” collapsed and refused to challenge Obama’s qualifications for national office. McCain did a great disservice to the American people by running an incompetent campaign. McCain also muzzled Sarah Palin, who wanted to attack Obama. McCain was seemingly intent on losing.

After McCain’s collapse I was basically thrust into the gap left by McCain’s surrender; Obama then turned his guns on me and started a relentless smear campaign trying to undermine my evidence pointing to his own lack of qualifications for national office. But I continued to nail Obama as a fraud and to predict he wanted to stage a nonviolent Castro-style and Chavez-style “revolution.” See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgjQhnDEGSk

4. In 2012 Mitt Romney also failed to attack Obama’s character. After “winning” the first debate between the candidates, Romney became passive and essentially fumbled away the presidency. Romney’s staff also refused to authorize intense attacks on Obama. Like McCain before him, by running an incompetent campaign Romney did a great disservice to the American people.

5. After Giuliani attacked Obama this month, national Republicans and presidential candidates refused to back Giuliani. Why is Obama still important? Because Obama’s record will be on the line in 2016. The Clinton Smear Machine, moreover, is the most corrupt enterprise in American political history. If Republicans fail to attack Hillary Clinton, the same way they were reluctant to take on Obama, the Republican Party will forfeit a third presidential election in a row. So, yes, Obama matters and the unwillingness of Republicans to attack Obama’s character is a serious defect in their approach to both Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The Clintons and the Obamas have basically changed American politics: today national elections are brutal confrontations. At least they are from the Democratic Party side. In 2012 Democrats went so far as to call Mitt Romney a murderer. Republicans have proven over and over again they are too effete to successfully defend against or wage war against unscrupulous Democratic tactics.

6. In his original remarks, Giuliani drew attention to Frank Marshall Davis. Undeniably, Davis was a communist. NY Daily News columnist Mike Lupica was so eager to defend Obama and attack Giuliani that Lupica got his facts crossed. Davis was not a “communist in Indonesia” (see [6] below) as Lupica mistakenly claimed. On the contrary, the factual record is clear that Davis was the driving force behind Obama’s character from the time Obama returned to Hawai’i at the age of ten until he left for college at age eighteen. And, yes, Davis was a communist.

7. While the list of political campaign consultants with family ties to the Communist Party USA is probably a short one, Obama managed to find what may be the only communist-linked consultant, David Axelrod, to manage his smear campaigns against U. S. Senate and presidential opponents. What a coincidence that we did not learn until 2015 about the Axelrod family’s history of links to the Communist Party USA.

8. Obama is systematically destroying America’s national security. A man who loves his country would not destroy his nation. Giuliani’s original remarks, that Obama does not love America, and was raised differently, were completely correct.

9. Giuliani’s honest and accurate effort to connect Obama’s current campaign of national destruction with Obama’s patrimony of communist associations was absolutely and totally based on fact. While Obama’s policies have also failed, Obama’s presidency is an utter disaster because of his defective character. Obama’s egomania and arrogance have doomed his leadership. In the corridors of power Obama is a worldwide laughingstock. Just ask Vlad Putin.

In February, 2007, I provided the nation with a psychological profile of Obama (which became the first chapter of my book [see below] on Obama) outlining why Obama could not and would not be able to function in the Oval office. I wrote that Obama could not handle a crisis. Well, what do you think of my 2007 prediction now? I made perhaps the most accurate prediction in American political history.

Obama is going to leave behind a legacy of disaster and destruction that could doom this nation. Obama could also doom his own political party for a generation – but not if the cowardly lions of the Republican Party keep surrendering to the bluster and “bs” of Democrats such as the Obamas and Clintons.

10. The truth about the Obamas was/is always out there, the way the truth about the Clintons was/is out there. But Republicans refused and refuse to attack the character of these corrupt political hucksters and refuse to wage war on behalf of the American people in defense of our way of life.

I laid out the truth about Obama for the American people starting in 2004. Republicans chose to ignore the truth and to forfeit two national elections in a row. The Republican response to Giuliani’s latest remarks, and Giuliani’s own backtracking about his remarks in the wake of liberal counterattacks, does not bode well for the Republican Party presidential campaign in 2016. Sorry, Rudy. First you told the truth, then you punked yourself.

But thanks anyway, Rudy, for reminding the American people about Frank Marshall Davis, a man I exposed in 2008 as probably being the president’s biological father and the man to the fulfillment of whose communist-inspired principles “Obama” has devoted his life.

There are none so blind as those who will not see, none so deaf as those who will not hear. Are you listening America?

NEW YORK NEWS CONFERENCE: Brian Williams, NBC News, NBC and Comcast capitulate to Andy Martin’s demand for FCC investigation

Media expert, law professor and conservative New Hampshire Republican Party leader Andy Martin will hold a New York news conference Sunday February 8th to respond to Brian Williams removing himself from the NBC Nightly News. Moments after Andy conducted a news conference Saturday afternoon announcing Andy was going to the FCC with the Williams scandal, NBC News’ responded to Andy by issuing its surprise announcement that Williams was temporarily stepping down. Andy will explain Sunday why the NBC/News/Comcast/Williams scandal is talking on explosive Wall Street proportions. Andy has been a brawler on the national media stage for forty-six years. Because of his unique combination of both legal, broadcasting and media experience he has been a part of exposing numerous major scandals (www.AndyMartin.com). NBC News once paid Andy the equivalent of $25,000 for mistakenly airing one his of his TV spots. Because Andy is independent of the legacy media, he is able to probe deeper and analyze better what is now happening in the Williams scandal. “Williams may come back,” Andy says. “But I am a little doubtful. I suspect NBC is scrambling for a replacement right now.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Attention New York, National, Media and Daybook/Assignment editors

Announcement of New York news conference Sunday, February 8th

FCC expert/law professor Andy Martin draws “blood” from NBC and Comcast with Andy’s Saturday news conference

Andy’s Sunday news conference will explain why Brian Williams is doomed

Andy, who has been a national media bulldog for forty-six years, continues to battle for public integrity and media responsibility

(New York, NY) (February 8, 2015) Moments after media expert and law professor Andy Martin conducted a New York news conference on Saturday, February 7th to announce he is asking the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) to open an investigation of Brian Williams, NBC News, NBC and Comcast, NBC News responded by removing Williams from the NBC Nightly News.

Andy has been a media brawler on the national stage for forty-six years, since Andy’s name landed on one of President Nixon’s enemies’ lists. Andy honed his skills as a litigator against political, judicial and media corruption during decades of fighting organized crime and media fraud in Chicago. Today he resides in New Hampshire, where his mother was born and where he grew up playing in a creek around the corner from where he now lives near downtown Manchester. In New Hampshire, Andy is perhaps the state’s only corruption fighter and truth warrior. Last year Andy’ advertising exposed Scott Brown for “stolen valor” and as a military fraud, disrupted Brown’s announced Pentagon retirement ceremony, and likely caused Brown to lose what was a close-but-winnable senate election.

“The Brian Williams scandal is much bigger and much more lethal than ‘talking heads’ realize,” Andy says. “Well, I realize it. NBC News now realizes it. Comcast now realizes it. It was no coincidence that moments after I announced my call for an FCC investigation Saturday that Brian Williams left the stage, perhaps never to return.

“Comcast has fifty billion dollars at stake, with hundreds of millions of dollars in fees and other expenses, all tied up in the takeover of Time Warner Cable’s assets.

“Here is Comcast’s regulatory problem, as implicitly reported by the New York Post’s Page Six Saturday (see link below):

But network sources said Williams’ antics shouldn’t come as a surprise to NBC News higher-ups. Execs knew he was overstating his Baghdad travails and even warned him to stop, but he wouldn’t listen, the sources said.

“The top NBC executives knew the story was false and told him to stop telling it,” an insider said. “They spent nearly a decade trying to protect Brian from himself. It was a constant battle.”

“What does this mean in plain English? The ‘suits’ at NBC are terrified of efforts to bring the FCC into the Williams scandal. The FCC does not monitor or regulate the news. Plain enough. But the FCC does take very seriously and regulate and investigate failure by licensees and broadcast management to properly supervise their employees. Broadcasting false news, and allowing an employee to lie, as Williams did, year after year without any restrictions being placed on that person, is a very serious regulatory matter.

“The New York Post story makes clear that NBC management has been aware of Williams’ lies for years, and did nothing to discipline him. It took America’s veterans, outraged at the media’s tolerance of Williams’ lies, to bring down Williams when NBC brass would not. Williams apparently went on making his crazy claims even after being warned to stop. Until veterans stood up and said ‘enough.’

“Furthermore, Williams may have a lifetime history of ‘fibbing’ and exaggerating (second link blow). Telling lies over a lifetime is very definitely a personality disorder and potentially even a psychiatric condition. When you connect all of the dots, and the ‘floating bodies’ in New Orleans and grounded chopper in Iraq and all of Williams’ other mishegas in context, NBC has a major problem on its hands. NBC management has allowed lies to go uncorrected for years, not days or weeks. This is a complete failure of licensee supervision. Corollary: Comcast could be headed to designation for a hearing on the Time Warren matter, which would be devastating to the deal.

“Because of my own intermixed background in media and law (I filed the first antitrust lawsuit against NBC, CBS and NBC decades ago), I saw the pattern and recognized Comcast’s vulnerability before anyone else did, which is why I announced my ‘FCC option’ Saturday afternoon. Once I exposed the FCC option, Comcast knew they were now in the fight of their lives and had to take immediate action to save their deal.

“The New York Post story (first link below) could also be interpreted as an initial attempt by Comcast brass to rescue the merger and throw Williams under the bus. How can NBC’s so-called ‘search for facts’ not probe prior admonitions to Williams by NBC ‘suits’ now that these warnings are out in the open? Is the Williams investigation going to be ‘wrapped’ in matter of days?

“In other words, Williams is doomed.

“NBC’s attempt to jettison Williams to save Time Warner could boomerang. If NBC/Comcast allowed a cover-up to go on for years — after all, the crew with Williams in Iraq knew he was lying right out of the starting gate — the FCC will be embarrassed into talking regulatory action,” Andy concludes.
