GOP Presidential Candidate and Contrarian Commentary columnist Andy Martin says that in Iowa, “‘Big Mamma Clinton’ shot herself in the foot”

GOP presidential candidate and “Contrarian Commentary” columnist Andy Martin explains why Hillary Clinton lost Iowa, and why she is likely to lose the South. “The media are lying,” Andy says. “There is no ‘Clinton firewall’ in the South. Clinton’s gun control attacks on Bernie Sanders have backfired. She has shot herself in the foot. In attacking Bernie’s ‘Vermont values,’ Clinton showed she is just another Democratic Party tinhorn dictator, a third term for Obama of more gun grabbing, more executive orders and more Obama-style ‘my way or the highway’ dictatorship. Guns are the ‘canary in the mine shaft,’ and they are singing out loud and clear that Clinton wants to restrict firearms ownership. By saying very little in response, Sanders has turned around the gun control issue and made it a big winner for him. The liberal media are ignoring this simple truth out there in plain sight.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Andy Martin says “Big Mamma Clinton done shot herself in the foot”

 

GOP presidential candidate and “Contrarian Commentary” columnist Andy Martin says Hillary Clinton shot herself in the foot by attacking Bernie Sanders on gun control

 

Andy accuses the liberal media of failing to tell the truth, because the Vermont narrative on guns conflicts with the gun control orthodoxy of the Democratic Party

 

Andy says the “Clinton firewall” in the South is an illusion

 

Is Hillary Clinton “toast?” Probably not; but Andy opines Clinton is coming perilously closer to the toaster

 

Andy says the only way Clinton can recover quickly is by apologizing to Bernie Sanders; she is unlikely to do so, and thus will be threatened by a continuing undercurrent of opposition during the primary season

(Manchester, NH) (February 2, 2016)

 

Dear American:

 

This is my eleventh letter to the American people from the 2016 campaign trail. I’ll have lots more to say about the GOP candidates in the days before the New Hampshire primary, but first some comments on how the “coronation” of Hillary Clinton became instead an “accidental discharge” of a firearm.

 

Eight years ago in 2008 I called the turn in Hillary Clinton’s fortunes. She began a “comeback” but it was too late. Eight years later I am back with a prediction about Clinton and this time it is not a positive one.

 

Because I am both a columnist and a candidate, I get to tell you the “inside” story that the liberal media will not. Plain truth: Hillary Clinton shot herself in the foot in Iowa. I have serious doubts that she can recover. While it is too early to predict she will lose the nomination, Clinton has cast a cloud over her future.

 

After reading this column there is only one way Hillary can make a quick recovery. She needs to issue an apology to Bernie Sanders and move on. I doubt she will.

 

In the military, an “accidental discharge,” firing a weapon accidentally, is a very serious offense. So too in politics.

 

Hillary is not very original or creative. So like many lawyers she tries to follow a “template.” She has been following the Obama template that says the only way for a Democrat to win the White House is to ignore “swing” voters and concentrate on the “base.” Unfortunately, like all templates, the Obama model is now four years out of date. Republicans, moreover, are unlikely to nominate a tin soldier such as Mitt Romney as their candidate.

 

Since the 2000 election “gun control” has been off limits for Democrats. In fact the words “gun control” have even been banished from the Democratic Party lexicon. Now they refer to “gun safety” measures. Whether called gun control or gun safety, Democrats want to take away your guns. Democrats peddle the fantasy that “guns” kill people, when in fact people kill people, sometimes using guns.

 

The “guns kill people” statistics are also vastly inflated because most gun deaths are due to suicides; there is no evidence that a suicidal individual will be prevented from killing himself or herself by restricting access to guns. A suicide might be delayed, but not likely prevented, through more firearms restrictions. Suicide should be treated as a mental health problem, not a gun control issue.(More on this aspect of “gun control” in another column.)

 

Vermont, which Bernie Sanders has represented for decades, is an unusual place. There are virtually no state gun control laws. Other than federal laws, which apply everywhere, Vermonters have chosen to be the state “laboratory” or “model” for what happens when a state simply ignores gun control regulation and allows firearms to be bought and sold without local restrictions. Nothing happens.

 

Clearly, states and cities with the strictest gun control laws, such as Chicago and California, are where the greatest gun deaths occur. Vermont is empirical proof that gun control neither encourages nor prevents misuse of firearms. Obvious question: if Vermonters do not have gun control, why isn’t Vermont a Wild West, shoot’em up place? Because Vermont is a civilized state where people do not walk around trying to kill each other. (Likewise, my own state of New Hampshire is not a hotbed of firearms misuse.)

 

It is noteworthy as well that Vermont has usually been under the control of Democrats in recent decades. Have they abdicated on the gun issue? Not at all. They have ignored it.

 

Bernie runs for office as a “socialist” (more on that in another column) in Vermont by ignoring national gun control agendas and campaigning as a representative of Vermont’s people and Vermont values. In short, no crazy gun control demands.

 

And here is where Hillary shot herself in the foot. She thought it would be easy to attack Bernie on gun control. And, yes, her “base” loved her slams. “Bernie, you voted for this, and voted against that,” Hillary accused Bernie. Bernie, not always the nimblest debater, defended himself by invoking Vermont values (the “small, rural state”) but he has inadvertently turned Clinton’s gun control attacks into a net positive for him. Instead, Clinton’s attacks have undermined her own campaign, allowing Sanders to grow his national presence as the de facto “pro-gun” Democrat.

 

If Clinton had never launched her gun control attacks on Sanders she would have probably won the Iowa caucuses convincingly. Gun control cost her a win in Iowa. There are no two ways, no way at all, around that reality. Instead, she had to settle for a devastating draw. Likewise in New Hampshire, if Clinton pursues the gun control agenda she will give Bernie an even bigger win in the Granite State than he is already likely to garner. Here’s why.

 

Gun ownership is a bipartisan issue in rural and small states. Not only conservative Republicans own guns. Yes, Democrats own guns too. In traditionally rural areas such as Iowa and New Hampshire, gun ownership is prevalent in most areas of the state. Iowans and Granite Staters feel they can police themselves, their communities and their gun shows without more federal regulation.

 

Bottom line: the more Hillary attacks Bernie on the gun control issue, the more she loses moderate-to-conservative Democrats, of whom there are still quite a few in the Midwest, South and New England. Hillary’s gun control attacks on Bernie backfired. Iowa proved, once again, that guns are toxic for Democrats, not only in races between Democrats and Republicans, but also within the Democratic Party itself.

 

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a gun control nut, may have tens of millions of dollars to promote gun control. But there are tens of millions of Americans who own guns and they don’t want Bloomberg telling them how to live their lives and how to buy or sell guns locally.

 

The Democratic mantra is that we are a “dangerous nation” and “unlike any other in the civilized world in our tolerance for firearm ownership.” They fail to recognize–that they are right! We are still a pioneer and frontier nation; rugged individualism is coded in our national DNA. The “Mommy Party” simply doesn’t have the “guns” to take away our guns. “Mommy” Obama failed, and now “Big Mamma Clinton” has shot herself in the foot.

 

Does Hillary have an anti-Bernie firewall in “Bubbadom?” I don’t see such a firewall. I see a forest fire starting when Clinton tells southerners she wants to take away their guns. Bernie will surprise again.

 

The liberal media won’t report how gun owners voted vis a vis Clinton/Sanders in Iowa. They are too embarrassed. They were cheering when Clinton launched her “gun safety” attacks on Sanders. The media don’t want to contradict their own orthodoxy: guns and Republicans are “bad.”

 

But the evidence is now out in the open for everyone to see. Gun control is killing off the Clinton candidacy.

 

Ladies and gentlemen: the Democratic race is going to the convention! You can thank Hillary’s gun control attacks on Bernie for the coming chaos in the Democratic Party. Big Mamma Clinton done shot herself in the foot.

(New York) (January 31, 2016)  Republican presidential candidate and constitutional scholar/litigator Andy Martin will hold a news conference at the Capital Hilton today, Sunday, January 31st, to end the Ted Cruz Birther Summit/National Conversation with a Closing Report and analysis of Senator Ted Cruz’ eligibility to be elected president.

 

Andy is the constitutional scholar and litigator who over a decade ago raised the first concerns about President Barack Obama’s eligibility under the Natural Born Citizen Clause of the U. S. Constitution.

 

Andy returns to New York Sunday afternoon and then home to New Hampshire as soon as possible.

 

The three-day Summit/Conversation explored in depth (a) questions about the original intent of the Founders who drafted the Constitution; (b) subsequent constitutional amendments and their effect, if any, on the Natural Born Citizen (“NBC”) Clause, and (c) modern trends in constitutional interpretation and their impact on the NBC Clause.

 

“The term ‘Birther’ was originally intended by the media to be a pejorative description of anyone who challenged Barack Obama’s family history. The liberal media were insulating Obama from the many questions raised by his mysterious past,” Andy says. “But long ago I accepted the word ‘Birther’ as shorthand for a generalized expression of concern for constitutional eligibility under the Natural Born Citizen Clause.

 

“Although Senator Cruz was invited to cooperate and send someone on his behalf to our Washington sessions if he wished to do so, he did not respond or cooperate in any way with our request for documents.

 

“Ironically, many in the liberal media support Cruz’s point of view that he is eligible under the NBC Clause. The liberal media take a ‘liberal’ view of constitutional interpretation. Conservatives within Cruz’ own base, on the other hand, manifest the most concern about whether Cruz satisfies the constitutional mandate of being a Natural Born Citizen. One Poll has claimed that more than a third (36%) of Republicans have some doubts as to Cruz’ eligibility (please see link [1] below).

 

“While I previously raised and addressed almost all of the NBC Clause issues in the context of Barack Obama’s candidacy, see group link [2] below, and expressed my expert opinions at that time, this weekend we took a fresh look at the NBC Clause question. Other law professors have also expressed their views, see group link [3] below.

 

“In order to permit opportunities for the broadest possible participation and discussion we conducted an evening session on Friday the 29th, an afternoon session on Saturday the 30th and a morning session on Sunday the 31st.

 

“People who have read my work on Obama over the past twelve years know that when I don my candidate’s ‘hat’ I express my own partisan views. But when, as in the Summit/National Conservation, I undertake to conduct a scholarly discussion, I try to be scrupulously fair and impartial. I will, however, have more critical comments about Senator Cruz next week, but not in the context of today’s Summit/Conversation.

 

Iowa caucus attendees are paying close attention to our proceedings. Within hours after we disperse they will start participating in the presidential caucuses. In the close Iowa race our discussions and reporting from Washington could make the decisive difference.”

 

While in Washington Andy also researched, and later will be addressing other national and international issues; he has also started interviewing potential interns who may want to join his campaign.

 

Andy can be reached today through the Capital Hilton switchboard (202) 393-1000 until 1:00 P. M., or through his cell phone (917) 664-9329 at National Airport, or through his national contact information at the top of this page after he leaves Washington.

CLOSING REPORT OF THE TED CRUZ BIRTHER SUMMIT/NATIONAL CONVERSATION

 

  1. The origins of the Natural Born Citizen Clause

 

  1. What the Founders feared in adopting the NBC Clause

 

We forget today how completely fragile the “United States” were at the time that the Constitution was drafted. There was a great fear that a foreign prince could come to America, produce an heir, and attempt to establish a royal dynasty. Today these concerns seem silly. In 1789 they were very real. The Constitution was drafted to restrict power, restrain power and control power. Most of that restrictiveness was directed at domestic despots who might be tempted to evolve. But there were clearly designs intended to limit foreign influence in the future. The Natural Born Citizen Clause was and remains foremost among the constitutional language intended to restrict access to the presidency.

 

  1. The restrictiveness of the NBC Clause

 

The NBC Clause is intended to be very restrictive. The Founders wanted to limit, not expand, the range of persons who were eligible to be elected president. So it is simply meaningless to say the clause “disqualifies” or “discriminates” or is “unfair.” The clause was intended to be precisely that. Senators and Representatives need only be “citizens;” only the President must be a ‘Natural Born Citizen.” The common law was highly evolved around the time the Constitution was adopted. The term “natural born” had a recognized common law meaning. The Founders knew exactly what they were doing when they adopted the restrictive language for presidential eligibility.

 

  1. Canons (“principles”) of constitutional construction

 

The Common Law developed in part through “canons” of construction, not unlike canons in ecclesiastical law. A “canon” is a generalized principle of law that directs how a legal question should initially be approached. One canon applicable to the NBC Clause is that all words have meaning, and that words are inserted with a meaning. Senators and Representatives need only be “citizens.” The NBC Clause applies solely to the office of president. The canon of statutory constriction that words mean something, and that special words mean something special, mandate that the phrase NBC means something, something specific and something special. So we can’t just ignore the NBC Clause.

 

  1. Subsequent Constitutional Amendments and statutory enactments

 

  1. Congress cannot amend the NBC Clause

 

There have been claims that after enactment of the Constitution Congress adopted laws that broadened the scope of the NBC Clause. Congress lacks any jurisdiction to amend or modify that clause. Congress has broad powers under the “naturalization” provision of the Constitution to create rights to citizenship, but those powers are entirely separate from the inviolate NBC Clause.

 

  1. Did the Civil Rights Amendments modify the NBC Clause?

 

After the Civil War the nation passed the Civil Rights Amendments abolishing slavery and imposing rights applicable to the states under the Fourteenth Amendment. Some people argue that the “subject to the jurisdiction” language of the Fourteenth Amendment was intended to modify the restrictions of the NBC Clause. I do not believe the Supreme Court would recognize that argument. There is no question that the Fourteenth Amendment broadened access to citizenship, but that amendment was focused on remedying the horrors of slavery, not modifying the NBC Clause.

 

  1. Have Supreme Court decisions “amended” the NBC Clause?

 

The Supreme Court lacks any authority to modify or dilute the NBC Clause. Only an actual and specific amendment to the Constitution can effect such a change. In fact, even liberals acknowledge the immutability of the NBC Clause. There have been several proposals in recent decades to adopt a specific constitutional amendment modifying or eliminating the NBC Clause. None have been approved by Congress, the first step in implementing a constitutional amendment.

 

III. Modern constitutional analysis of the natural Born Citizen Clause

 

  1. Originalist” interpretation vs. modern interpretation of old laws and constitutional provisions

 

Beginning perhaps with the Nixon presidency conservatives have vocally argued for implementing only the “original intent” of the Founders when they originally approved the Constitution. Liberals tend to follow the view that the Constitution is a “living” document and that interpretations can change. I agree with both approaches. The starting place must always be the original language and intent; but if that language and intent lead to an illogical or inconsistent result, modern generations can approve a Constitution that meets their needs. The “originalists” have been vocal advocates for their point of view; but over almost the past half a century the “living constitution” advocates have continued to prevail in actual Supreme Court decisions.

 

  1. The “Case or Controversy” principle of the Supreme Court

 

The Constitution only gives the Supreme Court jurisdiction in “cases or controversies.” The doctrine of “standing” is nowhere mentioned in the Constitution. But to effectuate the case or controversy limitation on it powers the Supreme Court developed the doctrine of “standing,” i.e. a requirement that a litigant must have an actual interest, and not merely a hypothetical or generalized interest, in a lawsuit which the court is asked to resolve.

 

There are already lawsuits involving Cruz’ eligibility. But because they are generalized attacks on Cruz these cases are unlikely to succeed one way or the other. I can’t predict with ironclad certainty whom the court would allow to challenge Cruz’ eligibility, but at a minimum that person would have to present more than a mere “public” interest in Cruz’ eligibility. The most likely challengers are actual, legally qualified candidates who are either running against Cruz or lose to him.

 

The “standing” doctrine raises a significant barrier to any lawsuits involving Cruz’ eligibility.

 

  1. Andy Martin’s matrix for NBC Clause analysis

 

Lawyers love procedures. They love rules. And they love “process.” Here is my proposed method for analyzing NBC Clause cases:

 

If a presidential candidate was actually born in the United States, there should be a rebuttable presumption that he or she is eligible to serve. The burden of proof should shift to protesters. If, on the other hand, a candidate such as Cruz is born outside the United States, there should be a presumption of ineligibility, and the burden of proof of satisfying eligibility should be on the candidate, not protesters.

 

The only exception to this analytical matrix should be for persons born to U. S. representatives overseas, such as military personnel and diplomatic officials. Clearly, military facilities and diplomatic stations and related areas (such as hospitals, etc.) are de facto American soil.

 

Because Cruz was born outside the United States, under my matrix he is presumptively ineligible to serve as president and the burden of proving his eligibility is on him.

 

  1. The Bottom Line on eligibility: Ted Cruz’ ‘Conundrum’

 

Ted Cruz’ constitutional eligibility to serve as president is a conundrum. If you follow the principles of “originalist” interpretation that have been conservative dogma since the Nixon era, and which Cruz has always advanced in his own constitutional advocacy, there is serious doubt that the Founders intended for Cruz to be eligible.

 

If, on the other hand, you follow modern principles of constitutional interpretation, there is a valid basis for Cruz to be deemed eligible. There are still clouds and doubts, however, since all of the facts concerning his family’s presence in Canada have not yet been disclosed and analyzed. Did Ted’s mother accept government benefits for which only Canadians are eligible? Such receipt by her might affect a view as to whether she ever surrendered her U. S. citizenship, either intentionally or inadvertently. We simply don’t know. Cruz won’t say. He brushes off any public concerns.

 

If Cruz was elected president, and during his candidacy for the office, there would always be claims that he is not eligible under the NBC Clause. Cruz cannot escape them. Even under modern interpretations of eligibility, Cruz’ birth in Canada to only one U. S. parent raises at least a preliminary question as to his eligibility.

 

Is there a court that will address Cruz’ eligibility? There is serious doubt under the “standing” doctrine that a court will do so, unless a losing candidate or opposing candidate of Cruz’ elects to challenge him in court. Cruz’ claim that the matter has been put to rest by earlier judicial decisions is simply not true.

 

The Ted Cruz constitutional conundrum continues and will continue until Cruz is either defeated or a court actually rules definitively in a case where he is an actual party.

“The term ‘Birther’ was originally intended by the media to carry a pejorative connotation as they sought to insulate then presidential candidate Barack Obama from questions about his family history,” Andy says. “But I accept the word ‘Birther’ as shorthand for an expression of concern involving constitutional presidential eligibility in general. I had absolutely no idea when I began researching Barack Obama’s family background twelve years ago that more than a decade later I would be revisiting the same issues for a Republican presidential candidate.

 

“The Ted Cruz Birther Summit/National Conversation will explore the constitutional issues of Cruz’ presidential eligibility in some detail. Although Senator Cruz was invited to cooperate and send someone on his behalf if he wished to do so, he has not responded or replied to our requests for documents.

 

“Ironically, many in the liberal media support Cruz’s point of view that he is eligible. The liberal media take a ‘liberal’ view of constitutional interpretation. Conservatives within Cruz’ own base, on the other hand, manifest the most concern about whether Cruz satisfies the constitutional mandate of being a Natural Born Citizen. One Poll claimed that more than a third (36%) of Republicans have some question as to Cruz’ eligibility (please see link [1] below).

 

“While I previously raised and addressed almost all of the issues in the context of Barack Hussein Obama’s candidacy, see group link [2] below, and expressed my expert opinions at that time, I am taking a fresh look at the Natural Born Citizen question. Other law professors have also expressed their views, see group link [3] below.

 

“In order to permit opportunities for the broadest possible participation and discussion we are going to conduct an evening session on Friday the 29th, an afternoon session on Saturday the 30th and a morning session on Sunday the 31st. I have reserved a suite at the Capital Hilton so we will be holding our meeting in the shadow of the White House two blocks away. Maybe President Obama will stroll over and give us his views.

 

“People who have read my work on Obama over the past twelve years know that when I don my candidate’s ‘hat’ I express my own partisan views. But when, as in the Summit/National Conservation, I undertake to conduct a scholarly discussion, I try to be scrupulously fair and impartial.

 

Iowa caucus attendees will be paying close attention to our proceedings. Within hours after we disperse, on Monday they will be called on to express their presidential preferences. In a close Iowa race, our discussions and reporting from Washington could make a decisive difference.”

 

Andy will also be researching and addressing other national international issues while he is in Washington as well as interviewing potential interns who may want to join his campaign.

Countdown to the Iowa Caucuses and Ted Cruz Birther Summit/National Conversation

The countdown to the Ted Cruz Birther Summit/National Conservation in Washington, DC has begun. In less than forty-eight hours GOP presidential candidate and constitutional scholar Andy Martin will convene a discussion on whether Ted Cruz is constitutionally eligible to serve as president of the United States. “I am relieved we were not scheduled for last weekend,” Andy says. “We’ve invited Ted to participate or send a representative and our proceedings in Washington, DC are being closely watched by caucus participants in Iowa. I am not a supporter of Senator Cruz but on issues of constitutional eligibility I will be strictly neutral and impartial. We will be meeting two blocks from the White House at the Capital Hilton.”

(New York) (January 27, 2016)  Republican presidential candidate and constitutional scholar/litigator Andy Martin is preparing to convene his Ted Cruz Birther Summit/National Conversation in Washington, DC. “We are forty-eight hours away from the start of the meeting,” Andy says. “The meaning of the term ‘Natural Born Citizen’ has triggered a great national conversation. We are all ‘Birthers’ now.

 

“The term ‘Birther’ was originally intended by the media to carry a pejorative connotation as they sought to insulate then presidential candidate Barack Obama from questions about his family history. But I accept the word ‘Birther’ as shorthand for an expression of concern for constitutional presidential eligibility in general. I had absolutely no idea when I began researching Barack Obama’s background twelve years ago that more than a decade later I would be revisiting the same issues for a Republican presidential candidate.

 

“The Ted Cruz Birther Summit/National Conversation will explore the constitutional issues of Cruz’ presidential eligibility in some detail. We have invited noted scholars to participate in the Summit but we can’t predict what attendance will be due to weather, etc. Senator Cruz has been invited to cooperate and send someone on his behalf if he wishes to do so.

 

“Ironically, many in the liberal media support Cruz’s point of view that he is eligible. The liberal media take a ‘liberal’ view of constitutional interpretation. Conservatives within Cruz’ own base, on the other hand, manifest the most concern about whether Cruz satisfies the constitutional mandate of being a Natural Born Citizen.

But when, as in the Summit/National Conservation, I undertake to conduct a scholarly discussion, I try to be scrupulously fair and impartial. I can’t predict what the weather will be or what the turnout will be, but I am prepared for a spirited discussion.

 

Iowa caucus attendees will be paying close attention to our proceedings. Within hours after we disperse, on Monday they will be called on to express their presidential preferences. In a close Iowa race, our discussions and reporting from Washington could make a decisive difference.”

Manchester, New Hampshire News Conference January 19th: Jeb Bush sex scandal hits New Hampshire radio airwaves

GOP presidential candidate Andy Martin will hold a Manchester, New Hampshire news conference today, Tuesday, January 19th, to release a radio ad that will start running on stations across New Hampshire this week. The ad alerts voters to a sex scandal involving Bush when he was governor of Florida. Andy Martin has been a political opponent of Jeb Bush’s for decades. The radio ad addresses “rumors” of Bush’s sexual escapades with a state employee while Jeb was serving as governor of Florida. “I should point out that Bush formally denied the media reports of his sexual misconduct,” Andy says, “but those reports were widespread and persistent. Bush is an arrogant snob with a colossal sense of entitlement. I believe the rumors are true. We are continuing our investigation and seeking to meet with the principals to gather more facts. Bush’s behavior was ‘Clintonesque.’ The rumors alone explain why Bush has had so many family problems, which I will be addressing later in the week or next week.” A copy of the radio ad is attached to emailed versions of this report; the ad is already available on Andy’s web site, www.AndyMartinforPresident.com, for worldwide listening.

(Manchester, NH) (January 19, 2016)  Republican presidential candidate Andy Martin will hold a Manchester, New Hampshire news conference today, Tuesday, January 19th to release a radio ad that will start running on stations across New Hampshire. The ad is already available on Andy’s web site, www.AndyMartinforPresident.com at “Hear Andy’s Radio Spots”: http://www.andymartinforpresident.com/images/ads/JebBush_RadioSpot.mp3

 

The text of Andy’s ad is available after the following remarks.

 

“I have provided below links to numerous mainstream media and Democratic Party ‘attack’ sites discussing Bush’s sexual improprieties in Florida,” Andy says. “The mainstream media in 2016 are allowing Bush to portray himself as a competent governor of Florida when in reality his administration was a chaotic failure. He was almost defeated for reelection. Voters in 2016 have a right to know how Bush was actually viewed when he was serving in Tallahassee. I began exposing Bush’s corrupt practices in 1994, long before he was actually elected. After Bush left office he began to line his pockets with cash from firms he had regulated as a governor.

 

“Bush has a massive sense of entitlement; that arrogance was demonstrated in the way the allegations of his sexual impropriety were suppressed in Tallahassee. But voters have a right to know who ‘Jeb’ really is. If Bubba Clinton’s sexual misconduct is still relevant, so is Jeb Bush’s. I will tie up the loose ends with more reporting about Bush’s failures later this week or next.

 

“It is my personal opinion, based on knowing Bush for over twenty-five years, that he was a failure as a public official and is a joke as a presidential candidate. But if Bush and his Wall Street billionaires are allowed to pollute the airwaves with TV commercials trumpeting his imaginary accomplishments, people will be deceived into thinking he is a legitimate candidate when he is not. The Bush Family ‘dynasty’ is finished. Jeb is too little, too late,” Andy continues. “I urged Jeb not to file or to withdraw his candidacy, but he insists on forcing his incompetence on New Hampshire voters.

 

“While media have generally reported on Bush’s activities, most of those reports are long in the past. There is no current reporting in 2016 to counteract the fabrications that Bush’s billionaire supporters are currently airing on TV. In part, the dichotomy between long-ago reporting and currently misleading ads is a failure of our media system to inform voters in a timely manner. There is little in depth reporting when voters are actually paying attention shortly before the primaries start taking place. ‘Old news’ is just that; old news. Few voters are aware of what was published years ago.

 

“My ad is completely factual where facts involving Bush are alleged, based on reporting of the Associated Press, and my accusations against Jennifer Horn also hit the mark. Horn is a disaster for New Hampshire Republicans, as I will document in a report later this week.”

 

In 1999-200, Andy ran an ad on WMUR-TV charging that George W. Bush wanted to start a war with Iraq. Andy’s ad proved prophetic. The ad is generally credited with helping defeat Bush in the 2000 New Hampshire primary.

 

——-

 

Text of Andy Martin radio ad

 

            I’m presidential candidate Andy Martin. I approved this message so you can know the truth about Jeb Bush. I’ve known Bush for over 25 years.

            When Bush was Florida governor the Associated Press reported quote: “For months, talk in Tallahassee bars,… state offices and Internet web pages linked Bush with…the secretary of the Department of Management Services.” End quote. Jeb tried to cover up allegations of his sexual impropriety. If Jeb’s wife could not trust him, why should America’s voters?

            Jeb says he was a great governor but he was really a front man for profiteering politicians. Jeb later received millions from firms interested in state business.

            Jennifer Horn is the corrupt and incompetent leader of the New Hampshire Republican Party. Horn tries to protect Bush by attacking his opponents. Horn has a scandalous record of financial shenanigans.

            There are a lot of great presidential candidates to vote for on primary day. If you can’t find one you like, vote for me, Andy Martin. I tell the truth.

Manchester, New Hampshire News Conference January 18th: GOP presidential candidate Andy Martin explains Part One of “Why Ted Cruz is unfit to serve as president”

GOP presidential candidate Andy Martin will hold a Manchester, New Hampshire news conference today, Monday, January 18th, to explain Part One of “Why Ted Cruz is unfit to serve as president.” Andy’s “unfitness” series will deal with Cruz’ financial deficiencies as a candidate and not his Canadian birth status. “Donald Trump is a super-successful businessman,” Andy says. “But he is a very inexperienced, unprepared and often disorganized candidate. Trump is attacking Cruz for his prior failure to file financial reports. Unfortunately, Trump is missing the ‘forest for the trees.’ Trump, in real estate terms, is ‘leaving a lot of money on the table.’ Ted Cruz’ family situation is such that he simply is unelectable because of his wife’s career at Goldman Sachs while that firm was looting Middle America. The disqualification is not that Cruz overlooked his Goldman Sachs loan; the real disqualification is that Cruz’ career was financed by his wife’s tainted Goldman cash.

(Manchester, NH) (January 16, 2016)  Republican presidential candidate Andy Martin will hold a Manchester, New Hampshire news conference today, Monday, January 18th to explain Part One of “Why Ted Cruz is unfit to serve as president.” Part Two will follow later this week.

 

“I accept Ted Cruz’ explanation that he may have ‘overlooked’ disclosure of his Goldman Sachs loan in running for the Senate, even though the oversight is very suspicious,” Andy says. “But the real issue is not the non-filing. The disqualifying issue for Cruz is that electing him would place a Goldman Sachs employee in the White House as first lady. That is simply unacceptable to the American people. If it looks as though Cruz might be nominated, that will put Bernie Sanders on a short track to the Oval Office.

 

“The Cruz situation raises interesting issues concerning the modern definition of ‘family’ for presidential campaign purposes. Traditionally, spouses and children wee ‘off-limits.’ But that was in the Bess Truman-Mamie Eisenhower era. Heidi Cruz is an integral part of the Cruz campaign. Heidi recently sent me an appeal for money:

 

It’s getting bad.

Time is running short before the Iowa Caucus and we are being attacked from every angle by the liberal media.

Look no further then the obscenity featured on this morning’s cover of the New York Daily News telling Ted to “Drop Dead!”

 

Did you see this?

 

It’s getting bad.

 

Time is running short before the Iowa Caucus and we are being attacked from every angle by the liberal media.

 

Look no further then the obscenity featured on this morning’s cover of the New York Daily News telling Ted to “Drop Dead!”

 

This is the lowest attack against Ted to date and the troubling fact is it’s not going to stop.

Ted and I expect an all-out assault from the media elites and we don’t have much time before Iowa to let these attacks go unanswered.

 

I am asking you personally to stand with Ted and me in defense of our conservative values.

 

Ted fought back and WON the debate last night, but the liberal media has now made it personal. The message has been sent loud and clear to anyone watching, they will stop at nothing to prevent Ted from becoming the next President of the United States.

 

That is why we need your support more than ever before.

 

Will you help us fight these attacks today with an immediate gift to the campaign?

 

Help Ted defend the Constitution and protect the conservative values we all hold so dear, we’re counting on you.

 

Warmly,

Heidi Cruz

 

If Heidi is in the thick of the campaign, then her financial history with Goldman Sachs is fair game. If Cruz’ spouse was a bank robber, no one would doubt that the Cruz ‘family’ was unfit to be First Family. Well, Heidi Cruz got rich working for a firm that robbed Main Street and Middle America and helped precipitate the financial collapse of America’s economy, all while profiting from its own insider connections.

 

“Not surprisingly, Ted Cruz has not released his tax returns and Heidi’s tax returns. But it is obvious if he and Heidi could borrow half a million dollars from Goldman Sachs, and another half a million from Citibank, Heidi was making millions while working for a firm that was fleecing the very evangelical Americans that Cruz is now soliciting with pious pronouncements. Why is a bank robber any different than a corporate robber that destroyed our financial markets and got richer in the process?

 

“Just days ago, Goldman agreed to pay billions more in penalties for its financial fraud. I have lost track of all of the fines and penalties Goldman paid for fraud and trickery on Wall Street while Heidi Cruz was working for the firm.

 

“Electing Cruz would put a Goldman Sachs ‘robber’ right in the White House. Is all forgiven? Was Goldman’s greed and fraud just a mirage? Sunday night Bernie Sanders used Goldman’s speaking fees to Hillary Clinton as a disqualifying factor for her. Because Clinton cannot attack Cruz for Goldman cash while taking some for herself, the more likely Cruz becomes as a nominee the better the chances Sanders could win for the Democrats.

 

“Republicans are cocksure they can defeat Sanders. I am not so sure. When has the foreclosure fraud crisis, and the way hedge funds and Wall Street firms are still foreclosing on innocent homeowners, been an issue in the so-called ‘debates?’ Never. Hillary Clinton says she is for African-Americans. But Hillary has taken cash from Goldman and other Wall Streeters at the same time as hedge funds and other financial firms continue to file phony forecloses on minorities. What hypocrisy. Except that the Cruz’ are just as big hypocrites as the Clintons.

 

“The day is coming when I will ask presidential voters to focus on the continuing crisis of foreclosure fraud, and to seek promises from candidates that they will reach back and prosecute the villains who destroyed our cities and small towns with fraudulent foreclosure lawsuits. I am preparing to focus on Wall Street foreclosure fraud as a pox on both parties. Their silence is deafening.

 

“While Ted Cruz was rising in politics he was surreptitiously relying on his wife’s income to foster his political career. Heidi Cruz was in effect a ‘Mafia Princess’ of Wall Street. Do we want to reward Goldman Sachs by placing one of is employees in the White House? Absolutely not. Millions of Americans lost their homes because of the financial trickery of Goldman and Wall Street firms and hedge funds. That trickery is still going on. Putting a Goldman employee in the White House would be a slap in the face to the millions, probably tens of millions, of victims of Goldman Sachs’ greed and gross abuse of our free markets.

 

“Heidi Cruz obviously wasn’t paid millions of dollars to lick envelopes at Goldman. She had a job that provided lavish compensation, for using financial legerdemain to steal from the American people. For a private citizen such behavior may be lawful; for a president’s spouse? For shame. I believe Heidi Cruz and every Goldman employee is guilty even if they did not personally engage in trickery. They knew they were profiting from the firm’s perfidiousness.

 

“I bear Ted Cruz no ill will. If he is nominated, I will vote for him. In many respects his life is a testament to the American Dream which I honor. But in rising through the ranks he and his wife profited from the misery of millions or ordinary Americans, the very Middle American Evangelicals he is now trying to trick again, into voting for him. Cruz used his wife’s blood money from Goldman to help finance his senate campaign. This time, his scheme will not succeed.

 

“Republicans should wake up to the reality that Ted Cruz’ wife’s relationship to Goldman Sachs is a disqualifying factor. We do not need a ‘Bonne and Clyde’ of Goldman Sachs in the White House.

 

“If Ted wants to stay in the race, he should release both his and his wife’s tax returns going back fifteen years (the way Jeb Bush did) and release all of the paperwork disclosing his wife’s career and compensation from and relationship with Goldman Sachs that allowed them to receive a $500,000 loan. Once that information has seen the light of day, voters can make up their own minds concerning his fitness to be nominated and serve. I have my opinion. What’s yours?”
