It has been an honor to serve Illinois in the Senate. For continued updates please follow @MarkKirk
Disappointed that during the admin’s last month in office they are breaking with the bipartisan tradition of standing with Israel at the UN
I emphatically urge outgoing Obama Admin to respect decades-long US policy & veto today's anti-Israel measure pending in UN Security Council
A video I made on my last deployment to Afghanistan as a reservist…
John Glenn served his country as a Marine, astronaut & Senator. My thoughts are w/ the Glenn family as we mourn the loss of an American hero
Today we honor the memory of the men and women who lost their lives 75 years ago at #PearlHarbor & extend a thank you to all those who serve
Thx @JewishWarVets for 120 yrs fighting against prejudice & honoring Jewish service members, vets & their families.
Thank you for the kind words @SenateMajLdr - It has been the honor of my life to serve Illinois in Congress…
After 6 years of hard work we have convinced the President that sanctions are absolutely essential for leverage over Iran
Lone wolf attacks pose a threat to our safety. We must understand what inspired the #OSU attacker to help prevent future attacks.
I encourage our Administration to stand with the Cuban people and take steps to ensure Castro's reign of oppression and fear ends with him.
The passing of Fidel Castro presents an opportunity for Cuba to usher in a new era of freedom and human dignity.
Today we mourn with @RepDannyDavis and his family following the tragic death of his grandson, Jovan.
Bolingbrook man sentenced for ISIS ties reminds us the US must be vigilant in battle against ISIS at home & abroad.
Congrats @ArchbishopBlase on your well-deserved elevation to Cardinal. Thanks for your commitment to #Chi community.
Thank you to @senrobportman for the @GLBC_Cleveland beer - It tastes extra sweet after the #Cubs World Series victory
Got a nice call today from Israeli PM @netanyahu. Told him I'll keep finding ways to strengthen US-Israel alliance after I leave the Senate.
Congratulations @TamarManasseh on being named a @ChicagoMag Chicagoan of the Year! Thank u for your work to end violence in our communities
My deepest condolences to the family of US soldier and IL native Pfc. Iubelt, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation in Afghanistan
Truman said, "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog." Meet the newest member of Team Kirk, Sweet Pea.
Today we honor the service & sacrifice of the brave men & women who wore the uniform to defend our freedom. Thank you #IL Vets. #VeteransDay
Check out my video from yesterday’s parade for the World Champion @Cubs #GoCubsGo
It has been 0 years since @Cubs last won a #WorldSeries. Happy to celebrate w/ the great fans of #IL. #GoCubsGo #FlyTheW
Cubs win! Go Crazy Go Crazy Go Crazy Congrats to the World Champion @Cubs
Need help navigating fed. gov red tape? My staff will be in #RockIslandIL tomorrow, 11/3 11a-2p to help w/ #SocSec, #VA & other agencies.
#VA exec responsible for reconstruction of Denver facility that was hundreds of millions over budget received nearly $20,000 in bonuses.
Senate must pass @SenRubioPress bill S.1082 to ban bonus payments to #VA execs. We must make sure money is going to care for our vets.
Bad #VA execs among those that got bonus last year. Bureaucrats should not be rewarded for continuing VA culture of corruption.
300+ Senior VA execs received $3.3 mil. in bonuses last year. This money should be for vets care not bureaucrats.
I continue to call for #VA to hold corrupt bureaucrats accountable for mistreatment of vets. Our heroes deserve more
Over 500,000 veterans wait more than 30 days for appointments at #VA hospitals yet $177 mil. handed out in bonuses.
Ohio and Illinois senators @SenSherrodBrown, @SenatorDurbin, @senrobportman & @SenatorKirk made some friendly wagers on the World Series

Tonight, the #WorldSeries comes to Wrigley for the first time since 1945. #GoCubsGo
Congrats @Cubs on tying the #WorldSeries tonight 1-1. #FlyTheW
Our vets make great sacrifices to protect the US & shouldn't be penalized because bureaucrats didn't follow the law.
Following my calls for intervention, Sec. Carter orders Pentagon to suspend efforts to reclaim reenlistment bonuses.
US must stand w/ Israel & suspend ties w/ UNESCO which continues to adopt one-sided, anti-Israel resolutions.
I look forward to enjoying a Great Lakes beer from @senrobportman after the @Cubs #flytheW. #WorldSeries
My bill prevents American collectors from inadvertently funding #ISIS through black market art trading:
This bill will create a barrier to ISIS’s antiquity trade in the US & ensure we have the tools to combat one of ISIS’s vital revenue streams
Panelist Tom Creal today on how to defeat ISIS: “Bankrupt the enemy, we win the war.” We must combat the black market antiquities trade.
These vets & their families have sacrificed enough and should not have to pay for mistakes of government bureaucrats…
It is a disgrace that now, a decade later, some veterans are being forced to repay bonuses paid and promised…
.@DeptVetAffairs must be held accountable. Glad to join @SenatorKirk’s efforts to address corruption at the VA:
