CHICAGO NEWS CONFERENCE: Obama should start screening Americans, close O'Hare office


Contrarian Commentary editor and Obama researcher Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference today, Friday October 24th, to ask President Barack Obama to start screening Americans who return from Ebola-ravaged areas of Africa and to close the O’Hare Airport Ebola screening station. All Ebola review activity should be consolidated at one or no more than two airports. Andy says the new Ebola case in New York, and the possibility that the thousands of U.S. troops Obama is sending to Ebola-ravaged Africa could be exposed to Ebola, create the risk of an ongoing Ebola infection crisis.

Andy says that by having Ebola screening stations at multiple airports today the CDC is only increasing the potential for a public health crisis. “We must stop Ebola from spreading,” Andy charges. “Having multiple ports of entry for screening expands the potential for spread of the disease. We must also start screening Americans who are returning from African nations where Ebola is prevalent. The majority of our U.S. cases have come from Americans who were in Africa."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Attention Chicago, National daybook/assignment editors

Announcement of Chicago news conference Friday afternoon

Andy Martin asks President Barack Obama to consolidate all Ebola screening at one American airport and to close down the Ebola screening station at Chicago's O'Hare Airport

Andy says the continuing spread of Ebola calls for a single point of entry where everyone is screened, not five (5) screening stations as at present

Andy says it is time to start screening American citizens who are returning from Ebola-affected nations
(CHICAGO, IL) (October 24, 2014)  Obama expert Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference today to ask President Obama to take three immediate steps: [1] to start screening U. S. Citizens who are returning from Ebola-ravaged areas of Africa; [2] to close the O'Hare Airport Ebola screening station; and [3] to consolidate all Ebola screening at one or no more than two locations.

"Left-wing Democrats have tried to suggest that Ebola screening is some sort of racially motivated plot by conservatives," Andy says. "Ebola screening is a public health necessity, not a political issue. By seeking to politicize Ebola control efforts, liberal Democrats are endangering every American.

"The time has come to state the obvious and to take the inevitable action: we must recognize that Americans returning from Ebola areas of Africa have become a significant public health threat in this country.

"U. S. Citizenship does not confer immunity from infection and it should not confer immunity from being screened. The new New York case yesterday underscores that unpleasant reality. EVERYONE returning from Africa who has been in areas where the virus is present should be screened and monitored, both African and American alike.

"I am sure that almost all of us appreciate the great risks being taken by Americans who are fighting Ebola at the source. These brave people should be in our prayers. While we appreciate the risks they are taking for humanity, we cannot ignore the public health risk created here at home when they return. It is absolutely unfair to screen Africans who might have been exposed and to ignore the Americans who are in the midst of the crisis and may have also been exposed.

"Plain talk: the time has come to start screening both Americans and Africans who are entering the U.S.

"The current protocol of having multiple ports of entry for Ebola screening also contributes to the public health crisis. When you want to screen for an emergency, you consolidate all screening at one location. That is why Ellis Island was used a century ago. People were screened for disease at Ellis Island before they entered the U.S., not after they had landed at the [today's] airport.

"For foreigners, entering the U. S. is a privilege, not a 'right' as President Obama's actions suggest. We are allowed to take protective public health measures. Given the dangers posed by Ebola, the screening process must now be extended even to Americans. One more case of Ebola is one too many.

"The Obama Administration should therefore immediately close the O'Hare Ebola screening operation. The Obama administration should consolidate all screening at preferably one location but no more than two.

"Ebola is not going away. We have been warned that the risk is growing, not receding. The time has come to think clearly about how to contain Ebola, and to reject the 'political correctness' approach of President Obama which is posing an increasing threat to the safety of every American."

Andy returns to New York on Saturday after attending homecoming at the University of Illinois. He will continue to study how to fight the Ebola War.

CHICAGO NEWS CONFERENCE: Andy Martin - Is President Obama deliberately infecting the United States?


Contrarian Commentary editor and Obama researcher Andy Martin reviews the evidence of how two (2) current public health crises in America have their origins in deliberate policies supported by President Barack Obama. Is Obama's "third World" orientation endangering the American people by fostering the importation of infectious diseases into the United States? Andy made a very accurate prediction of the Ebola crisis -- on September 16th.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Attention Chicago, National daybook/assignment editors

Announcement of Chicago news conference Wednesday afternoon

Andy Martin asks: Is Barack Obama deliberately or negligently infecting the American people with deadly diseases?

Andy says the evidence is overwhelming that Obama administration policies are creating an ongoing series of public health emergencies in the United States

Andy charges that "President Obama is 'outsourcing' our national security to African government employees"

(CHICAGO, IL) (October 22, 2014)  I am often asked if we exaggerate in calling ContrarianCommentary.com the "Internet Powerhouse," a term that was applied to my investigative analysis during the 2008 president election. Beginning in 2004 I started exposing the truth about Barack Obama. My 2007 Psychological Profile of the future president predicted he would be unable to function in the Oval Office. Obamabots have paid me the ultimate compliment of relentless personal attacks and bogus "biographies" in Wikipedia. But still I keep publishing the truth.

After losing a primary election on September 9th I have been on a national tour promoting conservative causes and supporting Republican candidates.

And, on September 16th I held a news conference in Chicago with this subject: Chicago news conference - "Is Barack Obama trying to infect the US with Ebola?" You can read the full story at link [1] below.

Here is part of what I had to say on September 16th:

No western nation has ever willingly placed thousands of its citizens in harm’s way of a killer virus. In the Midwest, authorities currently have been unable to contain a children’s’ virus and the contagion is spreading to other states.

To date the US has avoided infection with Ebola at home because of the small number of volunteer Americans who are fighting the disease overseas. But even with just three or four cases, a massive mobilization was necessary to evacuate Americans who became infected. If Obama exposes thousands (and then more thousands through rotation) of our military and civilian employees to this killer virus how can we avoid massive exposure to Ebola? What if something goes wrong and we suddenly have 100 Ebola patients, or more?

I think you will agree my analysis was accurate and very predictive. Because I am trained as a lawyer and analyst I use descriptive analytics instead of quantitative analysis to "see over the horizon." It is a "contrarian" approach and he results speak for themselves.

But now we have to address the broader picture. Are Obama's policies deliberately or negligently infecting and endangering the American people? In my opinion the answer is yes.

Point One. The enterovirus D68 which attacks children has to date killed more children than Ebola, and D68 continues to kill children (see link [2] below for more information). It is highly likely that the surprise outbreak of this deadly substance (D68) was imported as a result of the "children's invasion" of the USA by Central American activists last summer. Obama's deliberate effort to flood the United States with illegal immigrants is now literally killing our own children.

Point Two. Obama's "experts," and the president himself, promised us the Ebola contagion was under control and would not reach the United States. He was wrong. Obama's approach? To keep lying abut the Ebola epidemic in Africa and its potential danger to Americans. (I will have more to say about that on Thursday.)

Some of Obama's enemies accuse him of having a "Third World" orientation. Obama's supporters on the other hand accuse his opponents of unfairly attacking the president as "the Other." Obama's opponents obviously have the better of the argument.

It is inescapable that Obama's policies are leading to mass infection and unnecessary deaths in the United States. The recent epidemic of D68 didn't just appear out of nowhere. Like many pathogens it is "out there." There is no medical dispute that "children" from Central America illegally entering the USA last summer brought D68 with them. D68 is a child killer. How would you feel if your youngster had died as a result of an infection brought into this country at Obama's direction and under his supervision by illegal aliens?

Likewise Obama has doggedly refused to quarantine or control citizens from Ebola-infected nations. He insists our "doors stay open," to aid those nations, not ours. Clearly, Obama is putting African nations before his responsibilities to the American people.

President Obama decries "outsourcing" of American jobs. But he has become the ultimate "outsourcer" by delegating the initial step in screening African passengers to African governments (see link [3] below). No one should begin a trip in Africa that will lead them to the United States without U.S. Government control at every stage of the journey. "Trusting" African government employees to screen for a public health emergency when their governments have failed to contain the contagion is irresponsible behavior by Obama and his public health cronies.

Obama has promised to take more illegal actions after the November election. Is it any wonder that Americans in all probability face a constitutional crisis and political confrontation in the New Year?

Barack Obama may fancy himself the first "President of the Third World." But he is clearly not acting in the best interests of the American people. His immigration "policies" ultimately are killing American children and endangering American adults. Be concerned.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Attention Chicago, National daybook/assignment editors

Announcement of Chicago news conference Tuesday afternoon

Purported “journalist” Rich Miller censors effort to defend Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner

Andy Martin says the Chicago Sun-Times is not blameless in the “McKinney incident”

Andy says Rich Miller should not be considered a legitimate journalist but rather a stooge of the Illinois Democratic Party

(CHICAGO, IL) (October 22, 2014)  “Monday morning I attempted to post a comment on the capitolfax.com web site raising questions about the “McKinney incident” Andy says. “I am clearly not a supporter of Bruce Rauner and I have never been a critic of Dave McKinney. I bear neither man any personal animus.

“My comment was innocuous. Here it is in its entirety:

I am certainly no fan of Bruce Rauner but it seems to me the McKinney story is more serious than it appears on first blush. The claim that Dave McKinney’s wife is not doing consulting in Illinois but that her firm is advising clients in Illinois is legally a distinction without a difference. It was not until I saw your story that I realized how big the amount of McKinney-related fees was. Maybe I have now graduated to the status of “old fashioned” but, if asked, I would have suggested the Sun-times disclose the potential conflict and avoid the controversy. The fact that Quinn may have been polling on the story before it was published also raises the question of whether there was a leak.

Illinois politics has long been tainted by family-related conflicts of interest. The fact that Dick Durbin’s wife is a Washington lobbyist has always raised legitimate questions in my mind. Durbin also denies any conflict. Bruce had a right to fight back on this one. There is an “appearance’ of a conflict that can leave a reasonable person uncomfortable. Because Rauner’s campaign team is inexperienced he has not handled the defense as well as he should have.

“Rich Miller removed my comment in an obvious attempt to skew his web site against Rauner. Mr. Miller has every right to censor his web site to present a pro-Democratic Party point of view. He does not have the right to masquerade as an impartial and professional journalist while acting as a hit man for Illinois Democrats.

“The issue of ‘conflicts’ posed by the modern age, in which people in the media, politics and public relations intermarry, is a subject worthy of serious consideration and debate. On the facts of Mr. Rauner’s incident I thought Bruce had a reasonable proposition to present. Rich Miller was obviously trying to act like a hick politician instead of a respectable journalist.

“The standard we use in the law is ‘what would a reasonable person think of the facts?’

“The recent appearance of ‘lobbyist’ spouses in Washington, such as Mrs. Dick Durbin, adds to the public belief that wives now serve as ‘bagmen’ for politicians and that ‘Washington’ always finds a way around any ethical restrictions which are adopted. The ‘McKinney incident’ feeds into the same narrative. The Sun-Times has every right to defend their employee, even if the undisputed facts fly in the face of the ‘reasonable person’ standard of behavior.

“I believe a reasonable person would believe that Dave McKinney, because of the huge amount of work his wife’s firm was doing in the current election, had an actual conflict of interest. McKinney’s wife has to benefit from the $600,000 or whatever amount her firm has billed. To pretend that in a small, closely-owned company a $600,000 account would not create some sort of benefit for even a partner supposedly ‘walled-off’ from working on the account is an insult to the intelligence.

“Mr. Miller has his stable of sycophants who he allows to post the most inane remarks on a daily basis. He is obviously not interested in reasonably impartial analysis of a serious situation. Particularly because I am not a supporter of Mr. Rauner, my belief that Rauner’s complaints had arguable merit was entitled to be presented along with Miller’ sycophants’ comments.

“People should be aware Miller is not a journalist; he has the same kind of conflict that Bruce Rauner raised in relation to Dave McKinney,” Andy says.

Andy Martin holds Chicago news conference Friday, September 19th to state Mark Kirk is unfit for reelection


Independent Republican Party activist Andy Martin and his new political action team, Coalition for America, will hold a Chicago news conference Friday, September 19th detailing why Mark Kirk is unfit for reelection. Andy catalogs all of Kirk’s current false claims and continuing efforts at stolen valor even after Kirk was exposed as a military fraud in 2010. Andy also demands that Kirk disclose all of the alias’ he has used in addition to “Hillel Underwood” and where he has used them. Andy also questions whether a reputed closeted gay male can be elected in light of the changed social climate and acceptance of same-sex marriage. Andy says Mark Kirk is not electable in 2016 and was only elected in 2010 because Democrats nominated a mobbed-up “banker” with Crime Syndicate links as their candidate.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Announcement of Chicago news conference Tuesday

Attention national and Chicago daybook/assignment editors

Andy Martin calls on Mark Kirk to stop seeking reelection in 2016

Andy says that even after Kirk’s 2010 military scandals Kirk continues to lie on his U. S. Senate web page and lie to Chicago media about the details of his military service

Andy says Kirk’s entire public career has been “a series of lies”

(CHICAGO) (September 19, 2014) Independent Republican activist Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference today, Friday, September 19th, to document why Senator Mark Kirk is unfit for reelection and should not be fundraising using Michelle Obama’s name.

“Mark Kirk is a disgrace to the Republican Party,” Andy charges. “I have written to Senator Kirk and asked him to step down when his current term expires. All of the claims I make in the letter, which follows below, are documented by a series of links at the bottom of this article. Even after his 2010 scandals, Kirk continues to lie on his senate web page that he has “deployed” on active duty service when DOD regulations (links below) prohibit such a false claim.

“The accusations by gay activist Mike Rogers that Kirk is a closeted homosexual are still on Rogers’ web page.

“All in all Kirk’s entire public life has been a total and complete fraud and he should step down so that the party can begin to choose a replacement.”

Letter to Kirk (without Coalition for America letterhead):

September 19, 2014

Senator Mark Kirk
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senator Kirk:

“There you go again!”

I find that you are again blatantly misrepresenting and inflating your military record. In addition, there are personal issues that make it obscene for you to be fundraising for reelection using the name of Michelle Obama. For the good of the Republican Party you should announce that you are not running for reelection so that the party can begin the selection process for your replacement now.

1. Misrepresenting your military record

I began investigating your false military record in 2009, see letter posted at www.MarkKirk.us. Later you went on to describe for Chicago media imaginary battles in Afghanistan in which you participated. I documented your fraudulent activity during January, 2010 but the local media preferred to engage in a cover-up until the Chicago cover-up was exposed by the Washington Post in June, 2010. The Washington Monthly stopped at a running total of nine (9) military lies by you in 2010, see  http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/2010_06/024259.php

There is an extensive paper trail, starting with my post at www.MarkKirk.us detailing that you never “deployed” to Afghanistan and your activity as a military person was circumscribed by DOD regulations placing you in the inactive reserve, see: http://capitolfax.com/32790881-Mark-Kirk-Waiver.pdf

Despite the fact that you have repeatedly been exposed for stolen valor you continue to publish, today, in 2014, the false claim that you “deployed” to Afghanistan on your senate web page: http://www.kirk.senate.gov/?p=press_kit and to make the same false clam to Chicago media:  http://www.suntimes.com/7501538-417/kirk-stop-aid-to-pakistan.html#.VBv5vSuHiME

After being caught lying to the Chicago Sun-Times before the 2010 election, even after the election scandal you continued to lie to that newspaper and the Sun-Times continues to falsely report that you were “deployed” to Afghanistan: http://www.suntimes.com/7501538-417/kirk-stop-aid-to-pakistan.html#.VBv5vSuHiME

In short, you have utter contempt for the truth, utter contempt for stolen valor and very possibly a serious psychological and/or psychiatric difficulty that makes you a compulsive liar.

You were elected in 2010 because the Democrats chose to run a Mobbed-up, Crime Syndicate-linked “banker” as your opponent. I seriously doubt you will be so lucky next time. Trying to fund raise off the possible candidacy of Michelle Obama is thus gross and obscene.

2. Your use of false names and alias’

You registered at a hospital under a false name (Hillel Underwood). That may be a violation of federal law. Although you tried to claim that a Senate employee encouraged you to do so, a search of senate records and rules provides no justification for the claim that the Senate’s employees encourage false hospital registrations or the use of alias’ in medical or any other matters. I would ask that you disclose all of the alias’ you have used and where you have used them since 2000.

3. The allegations of your homosexuality continue in a changed climate for gay acceptance

To be clear at the outset, I have never accused you of homosexual behavior and I do not do so at this time. In 2009-2010 I merely pointed to allegations of your homosexual activity posted by your Lake County neighbors, the late Col. Ray True and the late Jack Roeser. I have no personal knowledge of your homosexual status vel non.

I was attacked by the completely mendacious Chicago media for truthfully drawing attention to public postings accusing you of being homosexual.

Subsequently, a gay activist posted a detailed exposition of your status as a homosexual, based on his personal knowledge and investigation and based on meeting you personally, see http://www.blogactive.com/?p=1567

Once again, I merely draw attention to what is posted on the Internet. When you voted against repeal of DADT the gay community attacked you for hypocrisy, which was also the basis for Mike Rogers’ outing. My guess is that if you continue to remain closeted, you will again be attacked for the fact of being closeted.

Since 2010 there has been a sea change in how Americans view homosexuality. In neighboring Wisconsin, an openly lesbian senator has been elected as your colleague. Same-sex marriage has gained widespread acceptance. In other words, society has generally moved from a gays-as-closeted attitude to an open acceptance of homosexuals in public life.

There is strong opposition within the politically active gay community to closeted males who deny their sexuality. While the matter has yet to be tested in 2016, if you run for reelection I am relatively certain you will face opposition from gay activists for remaining closeted in the current environment of acceptance.

All in all your pretensions to reelection are an embarrassment to the Republican Party. Instead of acting as a faux candidate and seeking to raise cash off Michelle Obama, why not do the right thing and retire at the end of your term so the party may begin a search for your replacement now.

Respectfully submitted,

ANDY MARTIN

Chicago news conference Tuesday: Andy Martin condemns Obama for sending 3000 American military personnel to fight Ebola


Contrarian Commentary editor Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference Tuesday evening to condemn President Barack Obama for sending thousands of U. S. military and civilian personnel to Africa to be exposed to the Ebola virus. “We can’t even contain a children’s’ viral outbreak in the Midwest,” Andy says, “and we are going to rescue Africa from Ebola? I hate to sound a dissenting note but Obama’s plan to use the American military as guinea pigs in the battle against Ebola is absolute insanity. The US can and should offer measured help. But exposing thousands of Americans to Ebola is not a rational response to Africa's failure to take care of its own people.”

Andy Martin slams President Barack Obama for sending thousands of U.S. military and civilian personnel to Africa to fight Ebola

Andy says it is inevitable that Americans will be exposed to Ebola on a massive scale, and that a domestic Ebola crisis could be triggered by Obama’s illogical scheme here at home

Andy says Obama is using US troops as guinea pigs by unnecessarily exposing them to the lethal Ebola virus

(CHICAGO) (September 16, 2014) Contrarian Commentary editor Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference today, Tuesday evening, September 16th, to condemn President Barack Obama’s plan to send 3,000 U.S. military personnel to Africa to fight the Ebola virus. “Obama is using our solders and civilian personnel as guinea pigs,” Andy charges. “No western nation has ever willingly placed thousands of its citizens in harm’s way of a killer virus. In the Midwest, authorities currently have been unable to contain a children’s’ virus and the contagion is spreading to other states.

“How are we going to save several African countries from their own mismanagement of public health resources? When does Africa assume responsibility for itself? Obama’s plan is utter insanity.

“To date the US has avoided infection with Ebola at home because of the small number of volunteer Americans who are fighting the disease overseas. But even with just three or four cases, a massive mobilization was necessary to evacuate Americans who became infected. If Obama exposes thousands (and then more thousands through rotation) of our military and civilian employees to this killer virus how can we avoid massive exposure to Ebola? What if something goes wrong and we suddenly have 100 Ebola patients, or more?

“Some people have criticized China for being silent. China, of course, is notorious for abysmal public health management. But China is seeking to exploit Africa’s mineral resources and also seeking to take a leading role in managing African economic development. Why isn’t China sending thousands of its own citizens to be exposed to Ebola?

“Obama has been widely praised by public health activists for his plan to expose the American military to Ebola infection. But we elected a president to protect the national security of the United States, not to be a do-gooder and expose our nation to a potential Ebola epidemic here at home. Obama should be erring on the side of caution but instead he is throwing caution to the winds.

“Is Obama deliberately trying to spread the Ebola epidemic to the United states? Obama’s behavior is dangerous, high risk, unnecessary and potentially devastating to our troops and ordinary American citizens.

“By all means let’s send medical aid and supplies to Africa. I support that effort. But let us use volunteer agencies to distribute and manage the aid, not soldiers. When did our volunteer Army volunteer to be exposed to a lethal viral epidemic? Obama’s action could jeopardize military enlistments.

“Thirty years ago during the early stages of the AIDS epidemic I was friendly with someone who became an AIDS patient. Later I visited my friend in the hospital. No one really knew how the virus was transmitted. But when I saw the red quarantine sign on the door I knew I was voluntarily exposing myself to something partially unknown. My friend and I knew each other through Episcopal Church theology school. I said a prayer and took the chance. I made a choice to take the risk.

“But no one is asking our military to volunteer for the Ebola expedition. They are being ordered into harm’s way. Obama is misusing the military. Obama is dispatching troops to Africa at a time when he is firing tens of thousands of experienced officers and enlisted men and shrinking the Army to pre-World War II size. Is this another phase of his scheme to disarm America? How can we say we don’t have enough military for military missions but we have enough military for Ebola missions?

“Will no one stop Obama from endangering America?” Andy demands.

Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference Tuesday to criticize Senator Rob Portman for not supporting Jim Oberweis


Independent Republican Party activist Andy Martin launches a new political action team, Coalition for America, with a Chicago news conference questioning why Senate Republicans in Washington are not conducting a “50-state strategy” to take control of the senate. Andy criticizes Senator Rob Portman for appearing disconnected about Jim Oberweis’ Illinois U. S. Senate campaign.

Andy Martin slams Senator Rob Portman for undermining Jim Oberweis’ U. S. Senate campaign

Andy says that due to the conflicting polls, “Washington Republicans” should not write off the Illinois senate race

Andy says Jim Oberweis deserves support from national as well as Illinois Republicans

(CHICAGO) (September 16, 2014) Independent Republican activist Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference today, Tuesday, September 16th, to demand that Senator Rob Portman apologize for minimizing Jim Oberweis’ U. S. Senate campaign.

“In a recent interview Senator Portman appeared lackadaisical and disconnected from the senate races, which only number 33 nationally,” Andy charges. “If he can’t be more focused, why is he acting as vice chairman of a ‘Campaign Committee?’

“I explain my concerns about Senator Portman’s conduct in my letter to him, which follows. The Chicago Tribune has published a poll showing Senator Dick Durbin ahead. Other polls have shown Jim Oberweis within 7 points of Durbin. It is precisely because of the ‘fog of politics’ that Senator Portman should not be undermining Jim Oberweis’ campaign and should be applying a 50-state strategy to taking control of the U. S. Senate.

“My independent Republican team will be working to elect Republicans everywhere across the USA.”

Text of Andy Martin’s letter to Senator Rob Portman (without masthead):

September 13, 2014

Hon. Rob Portman
United States Senator
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senator Portman:

I am writing to criticize your comments to the media in your capacity as a member of the National Republican Senatorial Committee concerning the Illinois U. S. Senate race.

The Coalition for America is an independent Republican Party political action team that grew out of efforts (Romney’s Rangers) to support Mitt Romney when he ran for president two years ago.

As the individual who first warned about the dangers that then-state senator Barack Obama posed for America in 2004, long before the Republican Party capitulated to Obama in 2008, I have a long track record of making accurate political prognostications and standing up for public integrity.

In my opinion the Republican Party’s platform should consist of six words: Public Integrity; National Security; Economic Prosperity. The rest is surplusage. Jim Oberweis supports a safe and strong America and a strong economy.

Your refusal to support Oberweis and your apparent lack of familiarity about one of only a handful of U. S. Senate races (1/3 of the senate is up every two years) is disturbing.

Illinois has been a “Blue” state due to the incompetence and corruption of the local Illinois Republican Party. Mr. Oberweis is neither. He is a successful businessman and so far as I am aware he built his business honestly. No candidate is perfect and I know that Mr. Oberweis is not perfect. Like all hyper-successful people he can be difficult at times. But he is running a capable campaign and he does not deserve to be thrown under the bus with a “Washington” attitude.

I am not a friend of Mr. Oberweis and he did not ask me to send this letter. I have met him during the course of political campaigns. Nevertheless, because it is always difficult to recruit good candidates in Blue states I fail to see why you are not providing at least some financial support and enthusiastic verbal support to Oberweis. By claiming you are not familiar with the race and by being negative about supporting a hard-working candidate you undermine the national Republican effort.

If the Republican Party is to rebuild and to become both an Illinois and a national force, you must of necessity pursue what Gov. Howard Dean once called the “Fifty State Strategy.” Every state counts. (Obama also pursued a 50-state approach.)

Although I now reside in New Hampshire I continue to closely follow matters both in Illinois where my anticorruption efforts continue and nationally as the CFA letterhead reflects.

I would urge you to send some money to Mr. Oberweis and to apologize for your error in judgment in undermining his campaign. Your noncommittal remarks have a corrosive impact nationally; they do not reflect that the Republican Party has learned any lessons from its past failures.

At a minimum Jim is forcing Dick Durbin to defend his seat and to direct resources to Illinois that Democrats might prefer to assign to other races. And Jim could win! It is about time Illinoisans got rid of Durbin; voters should be are tried of him. Illinois is a mess and Durbin is a contributing factor.

Respectfully submitted,

ANDY MARTIN
