ATTENTION NATIONAL AND WASHINGTON, DC DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Obama critic Andy Martin will hold a news conference today and demonstrate at the White House demanding that “President Obama, tear down this wall”
Andy is one of the “proud parents” of surprise Sweet Sixteen entry Florida Gulf Coast University; Andy campaigned to create the university
(WASHINGTON, DC) (March 27, 2013) Independent New Hampshire Republican leader and corruption-fighter Andy Martin will hold a news conference and demonstration at the White House today, Friday, to demand that “Mr. Obama, tear down this wall and reopen the White House to the American People.”
Andy is the proud “parent,” many times removed, of Florida Gulf Coast University. The maverick Republican supported a platform/promise in 1990 to create the university and afterwards used his friendship with Governor Lawton Chiles to lobby for the governor’s approval to build the university.
“I am not taking credit where credit is not due, but I did campaign to build Florida Gulf Coast University,” Andy says. “After the election, Lawton Chiles asked me what I thought, and I said Floridians needed a new four-year school. ‘Build it.’ Something good can and does come of politics.
“Of course, Floridians are also indebted to the legislators who actually authorized the governor’s recommendation. But I take pride in my infinitesimally small role in bringing FGCU to life. Go Florida Gulf Coast University!!! That’s my team in the Sweet Sixteen.”
Andy’s updated schedule follows:
White House at Pennsylvania Avenue and 16th Street - 2:00 P.M. News conference/demonstration March 29:
“Tear down this Wall”
Friday afternoon, after attending Good Friday services, Andy will walk over to the White House fence and to reprise President Reagan’s "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” moment by demanding that “Mr. Obama, tear down this wall” and reopen the White House to tours. “The closure of the White House while the Obama family spends millions of taxpayer dollars on endless vacations and self-indulgence is a disgrace,” Andy charges.
Capital Hilton - 8:00 P.M. [time change] Symposium March 29:
Will the Republican Party recover from the Iraq War?
Based on his Middle East expertise, Andy was an early opponent of the plan to invade Iraq. He lived in Baghdad for part of 2003. He is working on a novel about his year there. And he opens the floor for reaction and discussion of remarks by recent columnists (please see Group Link #1 below) that President Bush’s invasion of Iraq did incalculable damage to the Republican Party. Andy predicted that damage in 2006 and warned Republicans – but the Party had to be defeated before leaders would realize they were out of step with the American people.
Capital Hilton - 10:00 A.M. [time change] News conference/symposium March 30
Is Obama trying to destroy the CIA by removing drones?
Andy accuses President Obama of trying to undermine and weaken the CIA by removing an in-house drone program from the CIA. Andy suggests that the Obama plan will endanger national security by depriving the CIA of modern technology (please see Group link #2 below). “The CIA is not a law enforcement agency,” Andy says. “The CIA is not a military force. It is a clandestine service that must have available and accessible all of the technology of modern intelligence, including armed and unarmed drones. That has been the lesson going back to the OSS. President Obama’s plan should be rejected by Congress.”
Andy’s familiarity with the CIA is based on over forty years of experience in Asia, Southwest Asia and the Middle East; he is regarded overseas as one of America’s most respected independent foreign policy, military and intelligence analysts. He was in Iran and Afghanistan during the hostage crisis in 1979-80, and has regularly returned to Southwest Asia since then. He lived in Iraq in 2003. His analysis of the terrorist threat in Iran during 1979-80, and again in Iraq in 2003, were leading-edge predictions of what Americans faced in the future. Andy first went to Asia in 1967 and has lived in or been in Israel, Jordan, Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Viet-Nam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Burma, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.
