Corruption fighter Andy Martin triggers avalanche of opposition to University of Illinois payoffs to Phyllis Wise

When National corruption fighter Andy Martin advised the University of Illinois Board of Trustees he was preparing to file suit to block payments to disgraced Chancellor Phyllis Wise, he was alone in doing so. Within hours after Andy held a Chicago news conference to announce his litigation plans, an avalanche of people, including Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, joined Andy in asking the Trustees not to approve a payment to Wise. Andy is continuing with his plans to sue if the Trustees issue an approval on Wednesday. “Everyone was sitting on the sidelines until I acted as the ‘dam buster’ and announced my plans to sue the University if Trustees surrendered to a corrupt employee. In the wake of my news conference there has been an avalanche of protests. My plan to go to the legislature if the Trustees thumb their nose at Illinois taxpayers, should not be considered an idle threat. I am leading the way for a rebirth of public integrity in Illinois and across the nation.”

(Chicago) (August 11, 2015) When national corruption fighter Andy Martin advised the University of Illinois Board of Trustees that he was preparing to file suit to block payments and retirement benefits to disgraced Chancellor Phyllis Wise Andy was alone in doing so. Within hours after Andy held a Chicago news conference to announce his litigation plans, an avalanche of people, including Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, joined Andy in asking the Trustees not to approve a payment to Wise. Andy is continuing with his plans to sue if the Trustees issue any approval on Wednesday. “Everyone was sitting on the sidelines until I acted as the ‘dam buster’ and announced my plans to sue the University if Trustees surrendered to a corrupt employee,” Andy says. “In the wake of my news conference there has been an avalanche of protests. My plan to go to the legislature if the Trustees thumb their nose at Illinois taxpayers should not be considered an idle threat. University funding will almost certainly be reduced or eliminated if Trustees ignore their own fiduciary duties to act on behalf the taxpayers and stakeholders. My efforts are helping to lead the way for a rebirth of public integrity in Illinois and across the nation.”

Chicago news conference – Senator Mark Kirk financial scandal – Corruption fighter Andy Martin offers to help Illinois Republicans

National corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference today, Wednesday, August 12th to announce he has offered to challenge Senator Mark Kirk if Illinois conservatives can raise a campaign fund to defray the cost of getting Andy’s name on the primary ballot. Andy was already in Chicago standing by for the latest Kirk financial scandal to appear in the media (link below). Kirk has been accused of violating federal campaign finance laws and could be fined or prosecuted and go to jail. “Because I have already run against Kirk, and I have a track record of exposing his lies and telling the truth, I can mount an effective opposition where a rookie opponent cannot,” Andy says. “I am not anxious to run, as my letter explains, but I sincerely believe it would be an insult to the People of Illinois for Republicans to support and renominate Kirk for reelection. Hint: it is only going to get worse for him and, therefore, worse for the Illinois Republican Party. I am very proud that my lifetime of energy and continuing efforts to fight corruption are helping lead the way for a rebirth of public integrity in Illinois and across the nation.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Attention Chicago daybook/assignment editors

 

Announcement of Chicago news conference Wednesday August 12th

 

Andy Martin responds to the latest financial fraud by Senator Mark Kirk, offers to challenge Kirk in the primary

(Chicago) (August 12, 2015) Andy Martin’s letter to Illinois Republicans offering to challenge Mark Kirk follows:

 

August 12, 2015

Dear Illinois Republican/conservative:

I am writing to you about the continuing scandals involving U. S. Senator Mark Kirk. Kirk’s latest financial shenanigans are major news today. But Kirk has had shady dealings his entire life.

I left Illinois five years ago to live in New Hampshire. But at the time I promised Illinoisans I would not abandon my anti-corruption efforts and we continue to do our best to beat back the relentless flood tide of corruption and political perfidiousness in this state.

Later this week I will be in Washington, DC for a three-day series of events in which I announce my national plans. You will be receiving updates for all of the events and if you happen to be in the DC area, by all means stop by.

Two days ago I announced my efforts to block corruption at the University of Illinois. In my news release at the time I stated I was in Chicago for “another corruption investigation.” Now you know what it was/is: the Mark Kirk campaign finance and criminal fraud imbroglio. I was tipped off in advance. (See link below in Links section.)

Let me get to the point. Because of my national plans and national base in New Hampshire, I have no plans to run against Kirk in the 2016 primary. But, because of a quirk in the U. S. Constitution, I do not need to be a citizen of Illinois to challenge Kirk in the primary (I need to be a citizen of the state if I am actually elected to office). So I could run against him as part of my national anti-corruption campaign.

To date, Illinois conservatives have not taken any serious steps to challenge Kirk. However, if any one or some of you want to organize and raise a campaign fund of $25,000 to cover the costs of ballot access in the primary, I will accept the call and come back to file against Kirk in the primary.

A U. S. Senate candidate can’t be a rookie. Senate candidates need extensive national and international experience, as well as prior statewide campaign experience. At present, there is no experienced opposition to Kirk, which is why I am making this offer. Joe Walsh, for example, has dithered for months as to whether he might, or might not, run against Kirk. If someone is seriously going to file against Kirk in the primary, they need to start running now, or as soon as a ballot access campaign fund can be raised in my case.

My preference would be for someone who is both experienced and based in Illinois to tackle Kirk. But if no one is willing to step forward to present the case against Kirk, if any of you want to collect the funds necessary to get my name on the ballot I will take on that campaign as part of my overall national operation.

Here is why Kirk must be challenged:

  1. Kirk obtained his office by fraud

In 2009-2010 I explained how Kirk was lying about his military background. I also exposed the media cover-up. Kirk told the media about imaginary battles where he had come under attack (all delusional, and all before his stroke). My original web site is still available, and the Pentagon letter is still posted there (see http://www.MarkKirk.us and scroll down). On the web site I accused Kirk of inflating his military record and documented my charge with a Navy document. What happened? A media covr-up of Kirk’s lies?

While the media lied to you before the primary, the truth emerged after the primary: Kirk was a military fraud who claimed imaginary roles, nonexistent positions and faux military awards. Kirk was a Walter Mitty “warrior.” The media had lied to the people of Illinois; I had told the truth. (Surprise.) If the truth had come out before the primary, there is a serious doubt whether Republicans would have nominated a military fraud as their candidate.

  1. Kirk is not physically able to serve as a senator

Kirk is disabled. There is no shame in being ill or growing old. It happens to every last one of us. But being a senator is a physically demanding job. The job of a senator is also mentally demanding. Kirk cannot even speak properly at committee hearings. He has become a mannequin for his staff members to manipulate. As for his apparently former Cameroonian man-servant (see Tribune story), what can I say (see link below)? Even in the choice of a personal attendant Kirk showed manifest bad judgment; he chose a career criminal.

Kirk can’t walk and he can’t talk. That is the truth. Kirk’s “recovery” has probably reached its maximum. I am sorry for his illness but I do not need to apologize for raising the obvious fact Kirk can’t care for himself (see Tribune story link below about the Cameroonian man-servant and swindler). Kirk is a growing embarrassment in Washington and he will now come under more intensive criminal investigation.

  1. Kirk is still lying about his military record

After Kirk was elected he probably thought his military fraud was “laundered” by the 2010 election and his earlier lies would be forgotten. With Kirk, lying about himself approaches a psychological illness completely apart from his physical ailments. Soon after being elected, Kirk started inflating and exaggerating his military credentials again. I am keeping a file of Kirk’s latest military lies.

  1. With all due respect, Governor Rauner is wrong

Governor Rauner is supporting Kirk for reelection. Governor Rauner is wrong. As you are probably aware, I would not be afraid to stand up to Rauner, but I am not going to pick a fight with him gratuitously either. But Rauner is dead wrong. Kirk will be a massive burden for the entire ticket. Seeing Republicans run a disabled man as their best choice is going to make the entire Republican Party look weak and disabled.

Kirk’s latest financial shenanigans, using campaign funds to pay for personal expenses, have landed many politicians in jail. He has now been exposed (link below) and the latest disclosures put an end to his prospects. Why run a “dead man walking” in a live campaign? It makes no sense. I know how Mayor Daley “the First” would have resolved the Kirk problem; I know how Rauner should resolve the matter. But running Kirk for reelection is suicidal.

  1. Bottom line

There you have it. If you can find a better candidate, by all mean please do. I am not anxious to be distracted. But I also feel a sense of loyalty to Republicans, and to the People of Illinois; Kirk should not be renominated by default. You deserve better than a severely mismanaged and seriously misdirected Republican Party leadership. If someone wants to raise $25,000 in advance as a ballot access fund, I will get the petitions printed and stand in line to file them. If not, I love all of you and love this state and love my University of Illinois and will be happy with whatever you decide or don’t decide. If you need me or need my assistance, I will not abandon you and will do what I can to help. If not, have at it.

Best wishes from New Hampshire (Now that the Kirk story is out I leave for NH his afternoon.) Go Granite! for the New Hampshire primary in 2016.

Can we still say “love and kisses,” or will that offend Megyn Kelly?

Chicago news conference – The University of Illinois faces a lawsuit from corruption fighter Andy Martin if Trustees hand over cash to disgraced Chancellor Phyllis Wise

National corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference Tuesday, August 11th to announce he has notified the University of Illinois Board of Trustees that the school faces a lawsuit if trustees approve payments to disgraced Chancellor Phyllis Wise. “The University of Illinois and other Illinois institutions are virtual cash machines for corrupt employees who violate the law and walk away financially rewarded for their criminality,” Andy says. “Disgraced Chancellor Phyllis Wise should be discharged with no benefits for conspiring to violate Illinois’ freedom of information laws. It is time for Illinois officials to stop shoveling cash to cooked employees. If the payments are approved I will lobby the legislature to completely cut off the University from any further state appropriations. A state in financial crisis should not be rewarding common crooks just because they are on a university’s payroll.” Andy’s letter to the Board follows below.

(Chicago) (August 11, 2015) Andy Martin’s letter to the University of Illinois Board of Trustees and President Timothy Kileen follows:

 

August 10, 2015

Edward L. McMillan

Chairman

University of Illinois

Board of Trustees

352 Henry Admin. Bldg.

Urbana, IL 61801

With copy to:

Timothy L. Kileen

Re: Phyllis Wise bonus payment and other payments

Notice of Intent to Sue

Dear Chairman McMillan:
In my family we have three (3) degrees from the University of Illinois. I can’t tell you how proud I am to be an Illinois graduate. I consider it a great honor to have received two degrees from the U of I (my mother got the third). But I am deeply distressed and embarrassed by the weak-kneed behavior of President Kileen and the University’s weak-kneed lawyers who are handing out cash to reward corrupt employees such as Phyllis Wise.

I am writing to respectfully request that the Board of Trustees deny Phyllis Wise any “bonus” for her corrupted years of service to the University and that the Board consider suing Wise for breach of trust and breach of contract, thereby seeking to negate her faculty appointment and sabbatical. There is a reasonable basis to assume that a court would find that Wise breached her fiduciary duty to the University, and thereby breached her contract, allowing the University to terminate her contract without further payments.

  1. General legal principles

Generally, the law favors the settlement of contested legal disputes. Where a bona fide dispute arises, parties are encouraged to settle. But where is the bona fide dispute in Wise’s case? Did someone else order her to break the law? What, apart from published reports, are the facts? Is a cover-up to protect others in progress? The public has a right to know why the University is rewarding Wise for corrupt behavior and breach of trust. Was there any justification for her to violate the law? There do not appear to be any mitigating circumstances. She willfully, maliciously and wantonly corrupted the University’s processes to violate freedom of information laws.

Amazingly, Wise is supposed to get a bonus while Illinois taxpayers are paying a law firm to investigate Wise’s misconduct. What is wrong with this picture?

Government and academe are held in low estate in Illinois. It seems like almost a daily occurrence when some educational institution is paying off some corrupt employee. Some day, somewhere, someone has to draw the line. I urge you to draw the line with Phyllis Wise. Enough!

Where is the incentive for employees to obey the law when the “punishment” for violating and corrupting the law is a cash bonus, a year’s paid vacation and a cushy job on return? What message does this settlement send to other potential violators?

In sum and substance there is no bona fide dispute to settle. Wise is a crook and faithless fiduciary. Wise broke the law, she should be fired for cause and the Board should send a stern message to other potential miscreants.

  1. Scienter or intent

If Wise had made a simple mistake, no one would be calling for her to pay a price. But there are 1,100 pages of corrupt emails that she and others acting in concert with her orchestrated to break state laws.

  1. Why is the University paying off a corrupt employee?

Normally, a corrupt employee should be fired. Period. Why is the University paying off Wise? Does she have more dirt to dish on other employees? If the facts are as they appear to be, Wise should be discharged for cause, not rewarded with a large payment, vacation and job.

  1. Is this what we can expect from President Kileen?

President Kileen is off to a bad start. In 1981 when air traffic controllers went on an illegal strike, President Ronald Reagan fired them. There were no more strikes by federal employees. President Kileen is starting out his presidency in a very bad way, by paying Wise hush money to go away and by whitewashing her abuse of state laws and the public trust.

If Killeen is a marshmallow, that is all the more reason for the Board to send Killeen a strong, stern message and stiffen his back: no more buyouts of crooked employees.

  1. Preparations for a lawsuit

While in the first instance the board votes on this smelly deal, if the board votes to reward Wise instead of discharging her I will be (a) filing a public interest lawsuit against the University to suspend the payment and to terminate her contract and (2) lobbying in Springfield to end all state support for the University. There is no reason why hard-pressed state taxpayers should be sending their hard-earned dollars to the U of I to pay lavish salaries to corrupt University administrators. It is time for the gravy train to end.

Please feel to contact me if you have any questions. I am in Chicago until Wednesday working on another Illinois corruption case. I hope a lawsuit will not be necessary and that Wise will be discharged for cause this week or soon thereafter.

Sincerely yours,

Andy Martin

New Hampshire conservative Republican leader Andy Martin says Fox News tried to politically assassinate Donald Trump at the Cleveland debate

Conservative New Hampshire Republican Party leader and corruption fighter Andy Martin says that Donald Trump is correct: the questions posed by Fox News hosts in Thursday’s debate were mean-spirited and biased. “Fox News was not conducting a ‘debate’ involving Trump,” Andy says. “Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace had an agenda to destroy Donald Trump. The subsequent brouhaha about what Trump said on CNN is complete nonsense. Jeb Bush, the little toady, who refused to confront Trump in person, was back stabbing Trump in Atlanta on Saturday. Erick Erickson’ efforts to replace Trump’s appearance with an invitation to Kelly shows that Erickson and Fox have a ‘wolf pack’ mentality trying to destroy Trump’s candidacy. Stay tuned.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Andy Martin provides his conservative insight and experience on the Trump/Fox News/RedState controversy

 

Andy analyzes the disputed questions at the Fox News debate and says Fox hosts clearly had an agenda to attack Donald Trump personally

 

“The only good that has come of this kerfuffle,” Andy says, “is that Jeb Bush has been exposed, once again, as a cowardly, back-stabbing toady for the Republican establishment.”

 

(Chicago, IL) (August 9, 2015)

DISCLAIMER:

I am not supporting Donald Trump as a candidate and have no connection with Trump’s campaign. I am an independent media and conservative analyst and activist. Because of my unalterable opposition to Jeb Bush, I am not supporting or endorsing any presidential candidate. I will support any Republican candidate for president except Jeb Bush.

—–

The Fox news/Trump/RedState.com/Erick Erickson/Bush kerfuffle is metastasizing faster than I can even keep up with written remarks. I saw the debate Thursday, and I was listening when Trump was interviewed by CNN Friday when he made comments that have since been taken out of context by Trump’s adversaries. Following is my point-by-point analysis:

  1. The general Fox News bias against Donald Trump

Let me be blunt. The Fox “News” debate was rigged against Donald Trump from start to finish. Fox News even rigged the audience in the debate auditorium against Trump, packing the stadium with party hacks, not a representative audience.

Questioners at a presidential debate have every right to ask “tough” questions. I have no problem with that. But Trump’s opponents were asked “tough questions” about issues. Trump was the only one who was peppered with nasty and misleading personal questions. And, as I point out below, if anyone has a checkered corporate past, Jeb Bush is much worse than Trump. But Fox News did not ask Jeb Bush about his financial failures, or how he collected government welfare when his own business ventures collapsed.

The “debate” was 100% anti-Trump. Bush was given a complete pass on his business failures. Who controlled the questions? Not the journalistic prostitutes that were asking them.

  1. Contested Question #1 “Will you support the nominee?”

This question was a legitimate question but it is a phony question at the same time. Here, Trump fell into a trap because he ignored his prior answers which were perfectly acceptable.

In the past, Trump has said he is keeping his options open because of bias against him within the Republican Party leadership. The Cleveland auditorium was not packed with ordinary citizens in the audience. It was packed with Republican Party hacks and Fox News hacks, which is why Trump was booed. Fox News had even biased the audience against Trump.

Trump should have given a clearer, crisper answer. He should have said, if the process is fair, I will support the winner. If the process is rigged, I will keep my options open. Bret Baier’s question was intended to lure Trump into a trap and to undermine Trump’s participation in the debate. If Trump had given one of his prior clear, crisp responses, he could have turned the issue on its head. Instead, Trump’s answer was a little muddled and it colored his opening at the debate.

There is nothing wrong with not supporting the winner of a rigged primary. In 2014 the Republican Party ran a rigged primary for U. S. Senate in New Hampshire. Like Trump, I was treated badly. I worked to see that the winner of the crooked primary was defeated to teach dishonest Republican leaders a lesson. There is nothing wrong with Trump keeping his options open to fight back against a corrupt Republican Party primary process or national convention. (Next month I will start a new round of attacks against the corrupt leadership of the New Hampshire Republican Party. I am still a loyal Republican, but I am not required to worship or endorse dishonest leaders.)

As for myself, as I stated in my disclaimer above, I will support any Republican candidate (of the seventeen) except Jeb Bush, because Jeb Bush is a disgrace and his family has been toxic for America, both financially and in foreign policy. No more Bushes. I am still a loyal Republican and will vote 100% Republican at the state ad local level.

The attempt by Bush supporters and their mandarins at Fox News to use the “will you support…” trope to undermine Trump has the same sort of sleaziness as the “Were you ever..(a communist)..?” of the 1940’s and 50’s. Trump has every right to stand up against Fox News and Bush Family McCarthyism.

  1. Are you (Trump) anti-woman because of your remarks?

Megyn Kelly started her questioning by asking Trump if trash-talking on television and in the New York tabloid newspapers disqualifies him from serving as President. Kelly dredged up several intemperate TV remarks Trump may have made. Trump has not made any such remarks as a candidate.

I have a long history of support for women’s issues, for equal pay and equal opportunity, and for women’s equality. I am the product of a single-parent household managed by a working mom whom I revere. If Trump was anti-woman or anti-female I would not hesitate to say so. (And, boys and girls, stay tuned. Jeb Bush is the real anti-woman candidate. I’ll be writing about that later on.)

Kelly was using the “anti-woman” meme to smear Trump and to divert attention from the “tough” questions on the issues she was directing at the other candidates. Trying to suggest Trump is anti-woman because of his TV talk would be akin to suggesting Jerry Springer supports domestic violence because of the antics on his TV show.

Instead of asking Trump serious questions, Kelly was prostituting herself to her overlords at Fox News that want to destroy Trump and were using the debate format to achieve their goal. (Am I “anti-woman” because I just said Kelly was prostituting herself to her bosses at Fox News? Not at all. I am using a figure of speech.) Kelly had an agenda. She was not acting as the legitimate journalist she pretends to be, and she was out to smear Donald Trump. In her own way, Kelly is just as much of a trash talker on TV as Donald Trump.

  1. Do several corporate reorganizations disqualify you for president?

I am not an expert on all of Trump’s corporate reorganizations. The term “corporate reorganization” is probably more accurate than “bankruptcy,” because Trump admits he did have reverses in New Jersey and some of his business interests went through reorganization. Once again, the tone of Chris Wallace’s question showed that Wallace was not trying to understand complicated corporate finance. Wallace was trying to falsely suggest Trump had “gone bankrupt.”

Given that Jeb Bush collected millions of dollars from a firm that was liquidated during the financial collapse (Lehman Brothers) and that Bush has never had a real job in his life, constantly being placed in lucrative positions by his family contacts, it took a lot of nerve for Wallace to try and single out Trump for corporate conniptions.

Jeb Bush has lived his whole life protected by and financed by “honest graft” engineered by Bush family Wall Street contacts and similar connections. What experience did Bush have to pump millions of dollars out of Lehman Brothers before the firm collapsed? None. Bush is just part of a parasitic family that has financed its children with wall Street handouts.

Before the Internet became widespread, twenty-one (21) years ago I exposed Jeb Bush as a financial fraud and corporate huckster. I know Bush. In all probability, you don’t know anything about his shenanigans. Fox News didn’t probe. Why not? Chris Wallace did not ask Jeb Bush what Bush did to earn millions before Lehman Brothers collapsed. Wallace was only focused on denigrating Trump. Wallace is another Fox News corporate prostitute.

Mark your calendars for how long it takes Fox or CNN or anyone else to ask Jeb Bush about the millions has scammed since leaving the governor’s office. Or whether Bush can enforce the tax laws when his wife is a jewelry smuggler? The negative questions were all anti-Trump, not evenly directed at Bush, Trump and the others.

  1. Did Trump refer to Megyn Kelly’s “menstruation?”

I was watching Trump’s phone interview with Don Lemon on CNN Friday night. It was vintage Trump. I heard the remarks about “blood” in Kelly’s eyes and “wherever.” I didn’t remotely think that Trump was referring to female hormones or menstruation. I agree with Trump that Erick Erickson, who has personally created the menstruation kerfuffle, is a sick puppy for even thinking that way.

If I thought Trump was denigrating Kelly as a woman, instead of blasting her as a TV host, I would tell you. As I stated above, I see no evidence that Donald Trump is anti-woman. The “anti-woman” smear is just another slander by the Fox News/Bush/Erickson combine.

  1. Is Jeb Bush a coward and a skunk and a two-faced liar?

Jeb Bush was in Atlanta Saturday at the Red State event trying to whip up opposition to Donald Trump and slamming him, again. When Bush was offered an opportunity to confront Trump in person at the debate, Bush wimped out and lied and said he had never attacked Trump. He denied attacking Trump verbally. But the moment Trump was out of sight, and Trump was out of town, Bush started with his attacks again in Atlanta. Bush is a two-faced coward who will never be president. He is part of a family of failed “presidents” who devastated this nation with two unnecessary Middle East wars. Bush is a Wall Street swindler who made millions while Lehman Brothers collapsed. Bush lacked the character and bravery to confront Trump in person in Cleveland, but Bush resumed his back-stabbing routine in Atlanta. Maybe that tells you something about the crowd Erick Erickson assembled in Atlanta.

Mr. Erickson used to be on the payroll of CNN; maybe he still is. Erickson says he doesn’t want his daughter in the same room with Trump. What a cowardly and despicable remark. Erickson and Bush deserve each other.

  1. Where do we go from here?

The liberal New York Times says “conservatives” are taking a “second look” at Jeb Bush, see link below. They better keep looking. I pointed out above that Bush’s behavior at the Red State meeting was predictable but despicable. But ask yourself, why is the New York Times so eager to promote Jeb Bush to conservatives? Need I say more?

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.

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
