Obama FEC scandal, Ellen Weintraub commissioner since December 2002, Former Perkins Coie attorney, Robert Bauer Weintraub conflict of interest, Natural born citizen ruling, Can we expect a fair advisory opinion

“What if the country held an election and there was no one to make sure that candidates played by the rules — no agency that could issue regulations, write
advisory opinions or bring enforcement actions against those breaking the law?”
“The six-person FEC — three members from each party — enforces the rules it writes about how Americans are permitted to participate in politics. You
thought the First Amendment said enough about that participation? Silly you.”
“Four Senate Democrats decided to block the Republican, Hans von Spakovsky.”
“The Post wants von Spakovsky confirmed only to keep the FEC functioning. He is being blocked because four senators have put “holds” on his nomination. One of those four who might be responsible for preventing the FEC from being able to disburse taxpayer funds to Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Chris Dodd and John Edwards is . . . Barack Obama.”…George Will, Washington Post December 11, 2007

“Why did Obama employ Robert Bauer of Perkins Coie, to request an advisory opinion on FEC matching funds that he was not eligible for?”…Citizen Wells

“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense,  to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells

 

 

Obama FEC scandal.

Why is this so important?

Forget for a moment the other bias and chicanery associated with the FEC ( hard drive from IRS, etc. )

To the best of my knowledge, the FEC is the only federal government agency since 2008 to address the natural born citizen requirement for presidency in the US Constitution.

In Hassan v FEC they established that just being a US citizen is not enough. Hassan is a naturalized citizen and not eligible for matching federal funds.

They did not prohibit his running since they are only responsible for the monetary aspect.

What is significant about Ellen Weintraub being a commissioner?

1. She is a former Perkins Coie employee. You know, the law firm that made hundreds of thousands of dollars off of the Obama campaign, helped Obama keep records hidden via attorney Robert Bauer ( husband of Anita Dunn ) and requested an advisory opinion from the FEC in 2007 regarding Obama’s matching fund options.

2. Weintraub was a FEC commissioner in 2007 when the FEC provided the advisory opinion.

3. Weintraub was a commissioner in 2008 when the FEC rejected Philip J Berg’s plea for a ruling on Obama’s natural born citizen status.

4. Weintraub has been a commissioner since December 2002 despite her tenure of 6 years being exceeded.

5. Weintraub is a liberal Democrat.

6. Weintraub’s participation as a commissioner with the Perkins Coie ties to Obama is troubling.

7. Numerous articles have been written about Obama not replacing commissioners on the FEC, despite their terms running out, but I have found none other than my own questioning Ellen Weintraub being retained.

8. Why did Wikipedia make it appear like Weintraub began as a commissioner in 2008?

WHY DID OBAMA REFUSE MATCHING FUNDS IN 2008?

PART 4

Obama, attorneys and Democrats control FEC

The devil himself could not have come up with a more devious plan.

Robert Bauer, of Perkins Coie, on February 1, 2007 requested an advisory opinion to keep Obama’s option for matching funds open. Bauer knew full well that Obama, not being a natural born citizen, was not eligible for matching funds. The FEC advisory opinion from March 1, 2007 responded in the affirmative.Ellen L. Weintraub, former staff member at Perkins Coie, was a Democrat appointee of the FEC at that time. She remained well beyond her scheduled tenure with the help of Barack Obama.

Advisory Opinion Request: General Election Public Funding

From Obama attorney Robert Bauer to FEC

“This request for an Advisory Opinion is filed on behalf of Senator Barack Obama and the committee, the Obama Exploratory Committee, that he established to fund his exploration of a Presidential candidacy. The question on which he seeks the Commission’s guidance is whether, if Senator Obama becomes a candidate, he may provisionally raise funds for the general election but retain the option, upon nomination, of returning these contributions and accepting the public funds for which he would be eligible as the Democratic Party’s nominee.”

“cc: Chairman Robert Lenhard
Vice Chair David Mason
Commissioner Michael Toner
Commissioner Hans von Spakovsky
Commissioner Steven Walther
Commissioner Ellen Weintraub

Note, in the above advisory opinion request, Robert Bauer was a Perkins Coie attorney and Ellen Weintraub was a former Perkins Coie staff member.

FEC advisory opinion

From Robert D. Lenhard to Robert Bauer

“The Commission concludes that Senator Obama may solicit and receive private contributions for the 2008 presidential general election without losing his
eligibility to receive public funding if he receives his party’s nomination for President, if he (1) deposits and maintains all private contributions
designated for the general election in a separate account, (2) refrains from using these contributions for any purpose, and (3) refunds the private
contributions in full if he ultimately decides to receive public funds.”
December 11, 2007

George Will in the Washington Post writes.

“Paralyze The FEC? Splendid.”

“What if the country held an election and there was no one to make sure that candidates played by the rules — no agency that could issue regulations, write
advisory opinions or bring enforcement actions against those breaking the law?”

“The six-person FEC — three members from each party — enforces the rules it writes about how Americans are permitted to participate in politics. You
thought the First Amendment said enough about that participation? Silly you.

The FEC’s policing powers may soon be splendidly paralyzed.

Three current FEC members, two Democrats and one Republican, are recess appointees whose terms will end in a few days when this session of Congress ends –
unless they are confirmed to full six-year terms.

Four Senate Democrats decided to block the Republican, Hans von Spakovsky. Republicans have responded: “All three or none.” If this standoff persists until
Congress adjourns, the three recess appointments will expire and the FEC will have just two members — a Republican vacancy has existed since April. If so,
the commission will be prohibited from official actions, including the disbursement of funds for presidential candidates seeking taxpayer financing.”

The Post wants von Spakovsky confirmed only to keep the FEC functioning. He is being blocked because four senators have put “holds” on his nomination. One of those four who might be responsible for preventing the FEC from being able to disburse taxpayer funds to Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Chris Dodd and John Edwards is . . . Barack Obama.”

“Obama to Break Promise, Opt Out of Public Financing for General Election”

“In a web video to supporters — “the people who built this movement from the bottom up” — Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, announced this morning that he will not enter into the public financing system, despite a previous pledge to do so.”

“In November 2007, Obama answered “Yes” to Common Cause when asked “If you are nominated for President in 2008 and your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system?”
Obama wrote:

“In February 2007, I proposed a novel way to preserve the strength of the public financing system in the 2008 election. My plan requires both major party
candidates to agree on a fundraising truce, return excess money from donors, and stay within the public financing system for the general election.”

Senate confirms FEC Nominees.

From the Wall Street Journal.

“The Senate confirmed five new members to the Federal Election Commission, ending a bitter political battle that had hobbled the elections watchdog for
months.

But the Senate action came with a final twist: Republicans accused Democrats of delaying the confirmation vote one day to allow the Democratic National
Committee to file a lawsuit against the presidential campaign of Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

The six-member elections agency had been without a quorum since December as Democrats objected to Republican nominee Hans Von Spakovsky for what they said was his partisan handling of voting-rights matters in his former job as a Department of Justice attorney. The dispute prevented the two parties from reaching an agreement to vote on any of the nominees.”

“Other commissioners confirmed Tuesday included Democrats Steve Walther and Cynthia Bauerly. The new Republican commissioners are Mr. Petersen, Don McGahn and Caroline Hunter. They join sitting commissioner Ellen Weintraub, a Democrat. The commission needs at least four members to take official action on election complaints, new campaign-financing rules and requests from campaigns for legal guidance.”

From Fox News.

“Since the beginning of the year, the commission has only had two members: Republican Chairman David Mason and Democrat Ellen Weintraub.”

The individual, redacted, is requesting an advisory opinion from the FEC on Obama’s eligibility to be president. An email was sent with the request. The
email provides information on why Obama is not eligible. It begins with

“It seems that Barack Obama is not qualified to be president, after all, for the following reason:”

It ends with

“Interesting! Now what? Who dropped the ball or are we all being duped? Who do you know whom you can forward this to who might be able to help

From Citizen Wells FEC FOIA request.

An email from David Kolker, FEC counsel, to Rebekah Harvey is certainly interesting. Rebekah Harvey was the assistant to Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub . Prior to being appointed to the FEC, Weintraub was on the staff of Perkins Coie LLP and a member of it’s Political Law Group.

“The Act authorizes the Commission to issue an advisory opinion in response to a complete written request from any person about a specific transaction or
activity that the requesting person plans to undertake or is presently undertaking.”

“Obama to Most Likely Avoid FEC Audit”

“The Federal Election Commission is unlikely to conduct a potentially embarrassing audit of how Barack Obama raised and spent his presidential campaign’s record-shattering windfall, despite allegations of questionable donations and accounting that had the McCain campaign crying foul.

Adding insult to injury for Republicans: The FEC is obligated to complete a rigorous audit of McCain’s campaign coffers, which will take months, if not
years, and cost McCain millions of dollars to defend.

Obama is expected to escape that level of scrutiny mostly because he declined an $84 million public grant for his campaign that automatically triggers an
audit and because the sheer volume of cash he raised and spent minimizes the significance of his errors. Another factor: The FEC, which would have to vote to
launch an audit, is prone to deadlocking on issues that inordinately impact one party or the other – like approving a messy and high-profile probe of a
sitting president.

So, by declining public funding, Obama decreased the odds of an audit. And the FEC may not investigate due to political party affiliations of the FEC
commission members.”

May 1, 2009

“At midnight Thursday, the terms of Federal Election Commissioner Donald F. McGahn II (a Republican) and FEC Chairman Steven T. Walther (a Democrat) expired. Combined with Democrat Ellen L. Weintraub’s seat — she remains on the commission even though her term expired two years ago — President Obama has the opportunity to make his first three appointments to the six-member commission. Though FEC terms are set for six years, members are free to stay on until replacements are selected by the president and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.”

“Josh Zaharoff, deputy program director for Common Cause, argues that, short of complete overhaul, such a proposal would be the best way to ensure real
enforcement of election laws. The long-standing existing practice “ensures that the commissioners are likely to be loyal to their political party rather than
to election laws and the American people as a whole.”

After seven months without a quorum, the restocked FEC has drawn significant criticism from campaign-finance-reform advocates for its lack of serious,
independent enforcement. There have been a series of 3-3 deadlocks on key issues, resulting in a significant increase in the percentage of dismissed cases.”

“More FEC Terms Expire, But Replacements Unlikely”

“The terms of Chairwoman Cynthia Bauerly (D) and Commissioner Matthew Petersen (R) expire at the end of April. The terms of Donald McGahn (R) and Steven Walther (D) expired almost two years ago.

The longest-serving commissioner is Ellen Weintraub (D), whose term expired almost four years ago. The only commissioner who will be serving an unexpired term at the end of the month is Republican Caroline C. Hunter, whom Bush nominated in 2008, for a term that expires in April 2013.

Further complicating the confirmation process is a large list of pending issues before the FEC that will affect Obama’s own re-election campaign.
One of the biggest issues is how the FEC will write new rules in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, which would set boundaries for how
hundreds of millions of dollars can be spent by third parties in the presidential election and Congressional campaigns. The issue was so important to Obama
that he admonished the Supreme Court a few days after its decision in the case during his 2010 State of the Union address.”

“FEC Launches Audit Of Obama’s 2008 Campaign”

“The FEC’s decision to audit the campaign is not surprising, given that it was the largest federal campaign in history, raising more than $750 million in
receipts. If Obama’s campaign were not audited, it would have been the first presidential nominee’s campaign to escape such scrutiny since the public
financing system was created in 1976.

The potential for the FEC’s audit became increasingly more likely as the FEC questioned some of Obama campaign filings. In all, the FEC wrote 26 letters to
Obama for America warning the campaign that if it did not adequately respond to the agency’s questions that it “could result in an audit or enforcement
action.””

“As of the end of March, Obama for America had spent nearly $3 million on legal fees since the 2008 election. In all, the president’s campaign spent three
times more on lawyers after Election Day than in the two years preceding it.

The lion’s share of Obama’s legal spending went to Perkins Coie, a well-known Democratic legal and accounting firm. Perkins Coie is representing the Obama
campaign in all major legal matters, including seven of the FEC’s known investigations involving the White House bid. In each of these cases, the FEC voted to dismiss the case or found “no reason to believe” that the Obama for America or related committees had violated any laws.

Perkins Coie may be also representing Obama for America in the FEC’s spending investigation of a Republican National Committee complaint. A few weeks before the election, the RNC alleged that Obama’s campaign accepted donations from foreign nationals, received contributions that had exceed limits and submitted fictitious donor names to the agency. The status of this investigation is unknown, though the FEC confirmed it received the complaint.”

“Election Watchdogs Assail Obama on FEC Appointments”

“The groups are demanding that Obama shake up the board of commissioners at the Federal Election Commission, the only agency able to enforce campaign laws.
They say political divisions among the agency’s panel of six leaders have rendered it toothless.

“The bottom line is nothing can happen to change the commission unless the White House names new commissioners, and they are refusing to do so,” said Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21, a nonpartisan advocacy group. “The result is going to be an election with no enforcement.””

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/01/election-watchdogs-assail-obama-on-fec-appointments/

Why would Obama, as we know him, replace the FEC board. Since early 2007, Obama has been shielded by Robert Bauer and Ellen Weintraub. That’s right, as you read above, Weintraub is still on the FEC board, four years after her term expired. And don’t forget, after Obama secured the White House, he hired Robert Bauer as general counsel. Bauer has since returned to Perkins Coie to continue helping Obama keep his records hidden.

This is a clear conflict of interest!!!

And what about attorney ethics?

As stated above, Robert Bauer knew about Obama’s natural born citizen deficiency in February of 2007 and yet he filed a request for an advisory opinion on Obama’s behalf regarding Federal Matching Funds. This is fraud!

Obama must be Investigated for the
“Fraud”
he has committed on the United States and its Citizens
 
as he announces he is a candidate
for re-election
 
as Obama’s legal name is
Barry Soetoro
 
obamacrimes.com requests
any D.A. or Attorney General
to Investigate and take appropriate legal actions for the “Fraud” perpetrated by Soetoro/Obama
 
and hopefully Donald Trump
knows of a D.A. or Attorney General
with guts to take Legal Action
(Lafayette Hill, PA – 04/06/11) – Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the first Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama on August 21, 2008 challenging Obama’s lack of “Constitutionally Eligibility” to serve as President of the United States calls for any District Attorney or Attorney General in the United States to investigate and take appropriate legal action against Obama for “FRAUD” as Obama is using a false name and falsely claiming his eligibility for the Presidency of the United States.
Berg said, “Obama’s ‘LEGAL NAME’ is Barry Soetoro, his name when he was adopted or acknowledged by his Step-Father, Lolo Soetoro, in Indonesia. Obama refers to his Step-Father, Lolo Soetoro, in one of his books.  Also, on our web site, obamacrimes.com, we have detailed all of the facts that substantiate ‘Soetoro/Obama is a fraud, a phony, an imposter and this is the biggest ‘HOAX’ against our country in our history’.  We have a copy of his school record in Indonesia where his name is Barry Soetoro !
I am reaching out to Donald Trump to ask a D.A. or Attorney General that he knows to investigate Soetoro/Obama and take appropriate legal action for the Fraud perpetrated on the United States and its citizens.
Yes, one can use a fictitious name, but not for fraudulent purposes.  And by being a candidate for President, the use of Barrack Hussein Obama is fraud.
There is no evidence that we have uncovered, nor has Soetoro/Obama put forth, that he legally changed his name after returning to the United States from Indonesia at age ten [10].”
Berg continued, “It is time for our so called ‘Free Press’ to do what they used to do and that is vet candidates and in this case, Soetoro/Obama.
 
We are in a Constitutional crisis and it will only get worse.
Soetoro/Obama is not ‘Constitutionally Eligible’ to be President and therefore, everything he has done, all appointments and all signings are voidable.
I am basing this on the research that we and others have done that the overwhelming actual and circumstantial evidence is that Soetoro/Obama was born in Mombasa Kenya Africa and with only one [1] parent, his mother, a U.S. citizen, and by the law in effect on August 4, 1961, she could not convey ‘natural born’ status to Soetoro/Obama.” 
Berg states, “Shortly, I will continue to expose Soetoro/Obama by filing another False Claims [Qui Tam] case that I am preparing to file with the additional facts that Attorney General Eric Holder is in a position of Conflict-of-Interest and therefore, he and his staff in the U.S. Attorney General’s Office and Department of Justice should conflict out of the case and appoint a Special Prosecutor. 
Also, we will continue putting pressure on Republicans and Darryl Issa (R. California) to hold Hearings to verify if Soetoro/Obama is ‘Constitutionally Eligible’ to be President of the United States.”
Berg said, “I hope that everyone in our country realizes the freedoms that we all enjoy that came forth from our Forefathers who gave us ‘our’ U.S. Constitution, ‘our’ Declaration of Independence and ‘our’ Bill of Rights.”
Berg continued, “We are in a Constitution crisis that must be resolved ASAP.  We, citizens of the United States, are laughed at around the world as it is general knowledge that Soetoro/Obama is a Fraud, a Phony, an Imposter and he has put forth the greatest ‘Hoax’ in the history of the United States, over 234 years” !
Obamacrimes.com will also be putting pressure on the Republicans as they now control in the U.S. House for Hearings to verify if Obama is ‘Constitutionally Eligible’ to be President of the United States.  Keep watching our website, obamacrimes.com, for further details.” 
 
Berg concluded, “The crucial issues regarding Soetoro/Obama, the ‘IMPOSTER’, continue to grow.  However, the most important issue is Obama not being ‘Constitutionally Eligible’ to be President: 1) not being ‘natural born’, being born in Mombasa, Kenya; and 2) even more important, the fact that Obama was ‘adopted’ or legally ‘acknowledged’ by his Step-Father, Lolo Soetoro, and his school record in Indonesia indicates the ‘Imposter’s’ name is ‘Barry Soetoro’, his nationality being ‘Indonesia’ and his religion being ‘Islam’.  Obama, the Imposter’s legal name is ‘Barry Soetoro’.  If Soetoro/Obama has not legally changed his name, his legal name is Barry Soetoro!  Yes, one can use an alias, but not for fraudulent purposes; and Soetoro/Obama is.  Soetoro/Obama must be stopped !  Soetoro/Obama’s agenda must be stopped!” 
Donations are needed ASAP and very appreciated
to help cover our expenses to continue to Defend “our” Constitution
 
My Birthday is April 13th and I am requesting everyone to
please contribute $2.11, $20.11, $201.10, $2,011.00 or $20,110.00
so we can expose Soetoro/Obama in 2011 for the fraud he is !

Odd Little Moment
or
is the Truth Finally Surfacing ?
regarding Obama/Soetoro
(Lafayette Hill, PA – 11/09/10) – Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the first Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States stated ABC NEWS put out an article entitled “Odd Little Moment at the CEO Meeting” on November 7, 2010.

Berg said, “President Obama spoke to CEO’s Saturday in Mumbai.  Spice Jet founder, Bhupendra Kasagra, according to Jake Tapper, ABC News Senior White House Correspondent, that the conversation started off between Kasagra and Obama a bit odd”.  According to Jake Tapper, the following was stated:

MR. KANSAGRA:    Thank you.  Welcome, Mr. President, to India.  As a fellow Kenyan,I’m   very proud to see that you have made – [emphasis added]

THE PRESIDENT:      Made something of myself.  (Laughter.)

MR. KANSAGRA:     India as the focus of your drive for exports out of the U.S.

Berg continued, “Jake Tapper then makes the statement, ‘Obviously the President is not a Kenyan. One supposes Mr. Kansagra meant “of Kenyan ancestry” or something.”’

Berg remarked, “I disagree with Jake Tapper’s statement which is obvious an attempt by a representative of the major media to again cover-up facts about Obama/Soetoro; and I believe the truth is finally beginning to surface.”

Berg concluded, “The crucial issues regarding Obama, the ‘IMPOSTER’, continue to grow.  However, the most important issue is Obama not being ‘Constitutionally Eligible’ to be President: 1) not being ‘natural born’, being born in Mombasa, Kenya; and 2) even more important the fact that Obama was ‘adopted’ or legally ‘acknowledged’ by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro, and his school record in Indonesia indicates the ‘Imposter’s’ name is ‘Barry Soetoro’, his nationality being ‘Indonesia’ and his religion being ‘Islam’.  Obama, the Imposter’s legal name is ‘Barry Soetoro’.  If Obama/Soetoro has not legally changed his name, his legal name is Barry Soetoro!  Yes, one can use an alias, but not for fraudulent purposes; and Obama/Soetoro is.  Obama must be stopped !  Obama’s agenda must be stopped !

Philip Berg DC eligibility rally, Removal of Obama with or without Issa, Citizen Wells open thread, October 24, 2010

Philip Berg DC eligibility rally, Removal of Obama with or without Issa

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

From World Net Daily October 23, 2010.

“D.C. eligibility rally boldly blasts Obama as ‘fraud’
Attorney Berg motivates crowd to ask, ‘Where’s birth certificate?'”

“A rally today at the U.S. Capitol pulled no punches in declaring President Barack Obama an “imposter” and “fraud” who should resign before a constitutional crisis of his own making rips apart the nation.

The rally was called by Philip Berg, a Pennsylvania attorney who runs the ObamaCrimes.com website and was the first to sue over allegations Obama is constitutionally ineligible to occupy the Oval Office.

“The main thrust of the rally,” Berg told WND, “was to get out the continuing message that Obama is a phony, a fraud, an imposter, and [his eligibility to serve as president] is the biggest hoax committed against the U.S. in 234 years.”

Berg believes there is enough evidence, both hard and circumstantial, to justify an investigation into whether or not Obama is a “natural-born citizen” as required by the Constitution to serve as president. Berg is looking for a court with “the guts” to demand Obama provide proof of his eligibility.”

“Berg told WND he isn’t pushing for Obama’s resignation out of some right-wing venom – he’s a life-long Democrat – or racism or hatred, but out of dedication to preserving the U.S. Constitution and out of concern about what will happen to the country if Obama continues his presidency and is discovered ineligible years down the road.
“My goal is to have a peaceful revolution before something worse breaks out,” Berg said. “The sooner the better.”

He continued, “Obama is walking all over the Constitution, destroying the Constitution through holding office while ineligible, through a health-care plan that is clearly unconstitutional, and he has plans for more unconstitutional actions. I’m doing this because nothing is more important to the U.S. than its Constitution.”

Berg’s initial emergency appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court when Obama first took office, like those of a number of other attorneys, were not accepted by the panel. He has one case pending, and it is being prepared for presentation to the high court now.”

“He says that if it weren’t for the U.S. media, Obama would already have been exposed and removed from office.

“The media gave him a free ride,” he said.”

“Berg’s is not the only one who has challenged Obama’s residency in the White House. A case is developing involving Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who has questioned the legitimacy of the orders in the U.S. military under a president whose eligibility is under question.

Another case being handled by California attorneys Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation and Orly Taitz is on behalf of another presidential candidate and challenges Obama’s inclusion on the ballot.

Yet another claims Congress failed to perform its constitutional obligations to investigate Obama.

There’s even been a series of discussions about impeachment.”

“The court concludes … that the public’s need to know is more compelling

From The Wall Street Journal .

“Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Joe Miller meets supporters at his Anchorage, Alaska, campaign headquarters Thursday.“Mr. Miller is a public figure by virtue of the fact that he’s a candidate for the U.S. Senate,” said Superior Court Judge Winston Burbank at a hearing. He continued, “The court concludes … that the public’s need to know is more compelling than Mr. Miller’s right to privacy.”

He ruled some information shouldn’t be disclosed for reasons including the privacy of the people involved and client-attorney privilege. He added that the records shouldn’t be disclosed any earlier than Tuesday at 4 p.m., to give Mr. Miller time to appeal the decision before then. “Joe is going to confer with his attorney to see if an appeal is even necessary,” said a spokesman for Mr. Miller.

The decision was a twist in a battle involving several news organizations who had together sued the Fairbanks North Star Borough, where Mr. Miller once worked as a lawyer, for records about the Republican candidate’s potential misuse of government computers and the circumstances of his departure from the job.

Mr. Miller was allowed Tuesday to intervene in the lawsuit to push for the protection of the records. If the employment records are ultimately released, they could cast a spotlight on the candidate’s previous professional behavior at a critical point in the election.

Mr. Miller, who is backed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express, beat Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the GOP primary and now faces Ms. Murkowski who is running a strong campaign as a write-in candidate, and Sitka Mayor Scott McAdams, the Democratic candidate.”

Obama can be removed with or without Darrell Issa.

From Citizen News.

““If Republicans take control of the House, there is “not a chance at this point” that they will try to impeach President Obama, a top Republican lawmaker said this week.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who would helm the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee if the GOP wins on Election Day, said that his party will not try to bring impeachment charges simply because it disagrees with the president.
“Not a chance at this point. I don’t see it happening,” Issa said when asked if there is a chance of impeachment on Bloomberg’s “Political Capital,” which airs over the weekend.”

“Before proceeding, I want to be crystal clear. Obama is apparently not a legal president, is in fact a usurper, and as such does not have to be impeached, but simply arrested and removed from the White House in hand cuffs.

The First Amendment to the US Constitution provides for petitioning government, specifically the US House of Representatives, for a redress of grievances. This includes a petition or demand for the arrest or impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama.

From the 110th Congress House Rules Manual — House Document No. 108-241.

Petitions, memorials, and private bills

“Petitions, memorials, and other papers addressed to the House may be presented by the Speaker as well as by a Member (IV, 3312). Petitions from the country at large are presented by the Speaker in the manner prescribed by the rule (III, 2030; IV, 3318; VII, 1025). A Member may present a petition from the people of a State other than his own (IV, 3315, 3316). The House itself may refer one portion of a petition to one committee and another portion to another committee (IV, 3359, 3360), but ordinarily the reference of a petition does not come before the House itself. A committee may receive a petition only through the House (IV, 4557).”

Jefferson’s Manual as adopted in the US Congress House Rules Manual.

“In the <<NOTE: Sec. 603. Inception of impeachment proceedings in the
House.>> House there are various methods of setting an impeachment in
motion: by charges made on the floor on the responsibility of a Member
or Delegate (II, 1303; III, 2342, 2400, 2469; VI, 525, 526, 528, 535,
536); by charges preferred by a memorial, which is usually referred to a
committee for examination (III, 2364, 2491, 2494, 2496, 2499, 2515; VI,
543); by a resolution dropped in the hopper by a Member and referred to
a committee (Apr. 15, 1970, p. 11941; Oct. 23, 1973, p. 34873); by a
message from the President (III, 2294, 2319; VI, 498); by charges
transmitted from the legislature of a State (III, 2469) or territory
(III, 2487) or from a grand jury (III, 2488); or from facts developed
and reported””

Obama Birth Certificate / Eligibility / ObamaCare
Rally in Washington
this Saturday, October 23, 2010
U.S. Capitol – West Front

see “you tube” re Rally:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUN8xadBVkI

see billboard
(Lafayette Hill, PA – 10/20/10) – Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the first Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States stated that “WE THE PEOPLE” by and through Philip J. Berg and Obamacrimes.com is sponsoring the OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE / ELIGIBILITY / OBAMACARE Rally in Washington this Saturday, October 23, 2010 – 12 Noon to 4:00 p.m. at U.S. Capitol – West Front.
 
Berg said, “We have placed a ‘you tube’ video regarding the Rally at:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUN8xadBVkI

Also, a billboard advertising the Rally is located at Exit #42 (Maumelle-Exit) at Maumelle, Arkansas [approx 1/2-way between Little Rock and Conway, Arkansas].   See attached.

Berg stated, “This is the most important Rally in history as Obama is an imposter, a fraud, a phony and Obama has put forth the greatest “HOAX” in the history of our country, over 234 years.  This is an invitation to all individuals, no matter what your political party is or what group, Democrats, Republicans, Independents and/or Tea Party individuals to join with me on October 23, 2010 at the U.S. Capitol – West Front for a Rally to demand Obama/Soetoro prove he is ‘Constitutionally Eligible’ to be President and if not demand that Obama/Soetoro resign from office.”

Berg continued, “I am excited at the positive response we have received.  I am representing every citizen in the U.S., over 308 million of you; there is nothing more important than our U.S. Constitution!  Obama/Soetoro is laughing at us; he knows he is an Imposter, a Fraud, a Phony, and this is the greatest ‘HOAX’ against ‘our’ country in over 234 years!

Our group, obamacrimes.com is the umbrella for all of us, regardless of your issue.  Whatever your issue – healthcare [ObamaCare], taxation, Social Security, Anti-War – the issue to remove Obama/Soetoro is that he is an ‘Usurper’ – an ‘Imposter’ – together, ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ can unite with a huge PEACEFUL REVOLUTION RALLY and DEMAND that Obama/Soetoro resign.

Join with me – I am a lifelong Democrat [I ran for U.S. Senate & Governor in Democratic Primaries in Pennsylvania] that blows the theory that this is a right wing conspiracy.

I am doing this for:

1. the 308 million people in ‘our’ country that deserve to know the truth;
2. ‘Our’ Forefathers – who wrote the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights;
3. the 1.6 million men & women in the military who died defending ‘our’ Constitution;
4. the 1.6 million men & women in the military who were wounded defending ‘our’ Constitution; and
5. the millions of men & women who have served in the past and those that continue to serve in the military protecting ‘our’ Constitution and the rights we enjoy.

Together, ‘WE CAN’ demand that Obama/Soetoro resign.

The OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE / ELIGIBILITY / OBAMACARE Rally in Washington, D.C. is for the purpose of exposing Soetoro/Obama and demanding that he proves that he is ‘Constitutionally Eligible’ to be President, or resign from office.

All individuals participating are requested to bring a copy of their Birth Certificate so all can hold them in the air; while Obama/Soetoro who recently said he cannot keep wearing his Birth Certificate on his forehead when responding to a question by NBC Brian Williams, although Obama/Soetoro has spent over $1.6 million in fighting all lawsuits regarding his status and not producing his Birth Certificate.

The crucial issues regarding Obama, the ‘IMPOSTER’, continue to grow.  However, the most important issue is Obama not being ‘Constitutionally Eligible’ to be President: 1) not being ‘natural born’, being born in Mombasa, Kenya; and 2) even more important the fact that Obama was ‘adopted’ or legally ‘acknowledged’ by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro, and his school record in Indonesia indicates the ‘Imposter’s’ name is ‘Barry Soetoro’, his nationality being ‘Indonesia’ and his religion being ‘Islam’.  Obama, the Imposter’s legal name is ‘Barry Soetoro’.  Obama must be stopped !  WE THE PEOPLE can, by way of the largest Rally ever in Washington, DC, have a ‘Peaceful Revolution’ and force Obama to prove he is ‘Constitutionally Eligible’ or resign from office.  YES WE CAN !”  
Berg continued, “The cost of the Rally in Washington is expensive.  We must raise additional money to cover the cost of this Rally.

Donate today to help cover the expenses of this Rally and Defend our Constitution.  You may donate on our web site:  obamacrimes.com

An updated flyer regarding our Rally is attached.  Please spread the word to as many people as you can and stay tuned to obamacrimes.com.”

Standing in court, Dr. Edwin Vieira Jr, Berg v Obama, US Constitution, Obama eligibility, Natural born citizen

Standing in court, Dr. Edwin Vieira Jr, Berg v Obama, US Constitution, Obama eligibility, Natural born citizen

Earler today Citizen Wells presented a great interview of Margaret Hemenway conducted by Andrea Shea King. During the interview a reference was made to Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr,a legal expert, and his take on standing in court cases. Here is an article by DR. Vieira from October 29, 2008.
“America is facing potentially the gravest constitutional crisis in her history. Barack Obama must either stand up in a public forum and prove, with conclusive documentary evidence, that he is “a natural born Citizen” of the United States who has not renounced his American citizenship—or he must step down as the Democratic Party’s candidate for President of the United States—preferably before the election is held, and in any event before the Electoral College meets. Because, pursuant to the Constitution, only “a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States at the time of the Adoption of th[e] Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President” (Article II, Section 1, Clause 4). And Obama clearly was not “a Citizen of the United States at the time of the Adoption of th[e] Constitution.”

Whether the evidence will show that Obama is, or is not, “a natural born Citizen” who has never renounced his American citizenship is an open question. The arguments on both sides are as yet speculative. But Obama’s stubborn refusal to provide what he claims is “his own” country with conclusive proof on that score compels the presumption that he knows, or at least strongly suspects, that no sufficient evidence in his favor exists. After all, he is not being pressed to solve a problem in quantum physics that is “above his pay grade,” but only asked to provide the public with the original copy of some official record that establishes his citizenship. The vast majority of Americans could easily do so. Why will Obama not dispel the doubts about his eligibility—unless he can not?”
“The judge in Berg v. Obama dismissed the case, not because Obama has actually proven that he is eligible for “the Office of President,” but instead because, simply as a voter, Berg supposedly lacks “standing” to challenge Obama’s eligibility:

regardless of questions of causation, the grievance remains too generalized to establish the existence of an injury in fact. * ** [A] candidate’s ineligibility under the Natural Born Citizen Clause does not result in an injury in fact to voters. By extension, the theoretical constitutional harm experienced by voters does not change as the candidacy of an allegedly ineligible candidate progresses from the primaries to the general election.
This pronouncement does not rise to the level of hogwash.

First, the Constitution mandates that “[t]he judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution” (Article III, Section 2, Clause 1). Berg’s suit plainly “aris[es] under th[e] Constitution,” in the sense of raising a critical constitutional issue. So the only question is whether his suit is a constitutional “Case[ ].” The present judicial test for whether a litigant’s claim constitutes a constitutional “Case[ ]” comes under the rubric of “standing”—a litigant with “standing” may proceed; one without “standing” may not. “Standing,” however, is not a term found anywhere in the Constitution. Neither are the specifics of the doctrine of “standing,” as they have been elaborated in judicial decision after judicial decision, to be found there. Rather, the test for “standing” is almost entirely a judicial invention.

True enough, the test for “standing” is not as ridiculous as the judiciary’s so-called “compelling governmental interest test,” which licenses public officials to abridge individuals’ constitutional rights and thereby exercise powers the Constitution withholds from those officials, which has no basis whatsoever in the Constitution, and which is actually anti-constitutional. Neither is the doctrine of “standing” as abusive as the “immunities” judges have cut from whole cloth for public officials who violate their constitutional “Oath[s] or Affirmation[s], to support this Constitution” (Article VI, Clause 3)—in the face of the Constitution’s explicit limitation on official immunities (Article I, Section 6, Clause 1). For the Constitution does require that a litigant must present a true “Case[ ].” Yet, because the test for “standing” is largely a contrivance of all-too-fallible men and women, its specifics can be changed as easily as they were adopted, when they are found to be faulty. And they must be changed if the consequences of judicial ignorance, inertia, and inaction are not to endanger America’s constitutional form of government. Which is precisely the situation here, inasmuch as the purported “election” of Obama as President, notwithstanding his ineligibility for that office, not only will render illegitimate the Executive Branch of the General Government, but also will render impotent its Legislative Branch (as explained below).”
