Chicago news conference: Corruption fighter Andy Martin documents once again that Senator Mark Kirk is complete military fraud
Beginning in the summer of 2009 (see many links below)
corruption fighting independent Internet columnist and blogger Andy Martin
exposed U. S. Senator Mark Kirk as a military fraud and mental case. Andy
provided DOD records as well as exposing Kirk on live television in Chicago.
Illinois’ corrupt, incompetent
and completely gullible media published stories that Kirk had been “fighting”
“Mark Kirk is more than a Walter Mitty,” Andy charges. “He has had serious
mental problems all of his life. Most of his life is a lie. And, in 2016,
perhaps hoping that I would stay silent, Kirk is recycling his 2010 lies that
he was ‘deployed’ in war zones and ‘fought’ in wars and similar delusional
“My complaints to the Department of Defense prompted an
investigation that resulted in a warning to Kirk, to stop abusing his military
uniform as a political prop. But Kirk goes on lying and posting ridiculous
photos. In 2010 he pretended to be a fighter pilot. CNN caught him this week in
full battle dress, another fabrication and delusion. Kirk says it was a ‘mistake.’
And yet the local media in Chicago
keep protecting Kirk. What is wrong with this picture?
“I may be a prophet without honor in Chicago,
but I am a prophet who deals in the truth based on hard facts and evidence. Chicago’s
media are complicit in Kirk’s fraud. The local TV stations and newspapers are
equally culpable as liars for promoting and broadcasting Kirk’s lies.
“I have been exposing crooked Illinois
politics for half a century. That has to be some sort of record,” Andy says.
Andy Moved to Manchester, NH
in 2010 but he continues to maintain a corruption-fighting present in the Midwest.

Kirk’s pathological lying
(CHICAGO) (September 21, 2016) Andy Martin, the corruption-fighting independent
Internet columnist and blogger who has probably exposed more corruption and
incompetence from Hawai’i to New
Hampshire and points in between, will hold a Chicago
news conference Thursday, September 22 to excoriate the Chicago
media for shamelessly promoting Mark Kirk’s lies that Kirk has served in combat
Andy can be reached in Chicago
at (312) 440-4124.
“At my prompting, the Department of Defense (DOD) opened an
in investigation of Kirk and admonished him to stop playing politics with his
imaginary ‘deployments’ overseas, when he was never deployed anywhere,” Andy
charges. “DOD has stringent rules prohibiting members of congress from ever
being placed in harm’s way. Kirk’s claim that he came under fire in Afghanistan
was delusional. His claim that he was ‘fighting’ is nonsense. His claim he told
General Stanley McChrystal how to fight the war in Afghanistan
is delusional. What is wrong with Chicago
media that they publish such delusional claims by Kirk?
“Over and over again Chicago media scorned me for telling
the truth about Kirk’s lies and presenting evidence to confirm my claims, all
while exalting Kirk as a military impresario.
“I call on Mark Kirk to withdraw as a candidate for
reelection. He is a disgrace to the Republican Party. I would very much like to
see a Republican U. S. Senate elected in November. But if the price of a
Republican senate is having to reelect a liar and fraud, then that price is
just too high.
“This week CNN caught Kirk lying all over again. Notably, it
was out-of-town CNN that exposed Kirk, not the local Tribune or Sun-Times.
“In 2010 Kirk was wearing a pilot’s gear. This time Kirk
posted a picture in full battle dress (see CNN link below).
“The Tribune’s creepy Rick Pearson was another flack who
promoted Kirk and tried to undermine the credibility of my evidence. Mike
Riopell is also exposed as a local media idiot. I could go on but the trend is
obvious. The links from 2009-2010 are there (see below).
“If we want to know why Illinois is a ‘failed state’ and why
Chicago is dying, the fact that Chicago’s media have betrayed and corrupted their
public trust and duty to present the truth, and instead promoted phonies like
Kirk is bitter medicine to swallow.
“Kirk should step down. The firestorm generated by his
latest lies is, belatedly, going to consume him. He has done so very much
damage over the years.
“I also call on the Illinois Republican Party to denounce
Kirk for his lies, the way they attacked me for exposing the truth about Kirk.
The fact that the institutional party supported Kirk is a disgrace to honest
and honorable politics. Enough. Kirk must go. And go now. I have more evidence
and extensive files but I don’t have them handy, since they were archived long
ago. But the DOD records can be retrieved directly from the Pentagon. They are

While one of his Senate Republican opponents was attacking
U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk in radio ads this holiday season, the five-term congressman
and Naval Reserve officer was serving in Afghanistan.
Kirk has now returned and will no doubt hit the media Thursday with his
assessment of the Afghanistan
war and President Barack Obama's handling of the failed airline bombing on
Christmas Day. This is the second time the Highland Park Republican has served
a brief tour in the war-torn country as an intelligence officer. Last year, he
also deployed to Afghanistan
over the Christmas holidays, making him the first sitting congressman to serve
in a war zone since World War II.
