New Hampshire Has Vetted Presidential Candidates in the Past

AT LEAST TWO CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN DISQUALIFIED SINCE 2008 BY NH SECRETARY OF STATE

by Sharon Rondeau

New Hampshire Secretary of State William Gardner has been called "a state treasure" by NH House Majority Leader David Bettencourt

(Nov. 25, 2011) — An attorney from the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office representing the New Hampshire Ballot Law Commission stated on November 18, 2011 that the Commission’s only duty was to ascertain that a presidential candidate has “filled out the form and paid $1,000.”  The Commission’s ruling was that since Obama had done so, his name will remain on the New Hampshire ballot for the 2012 primary.

New Hampshire has historically held the first presidential primary in the nation, which is scheduled for January 10, 2012.

However, Secretary of State William Gardner or his designee have removed at least two candidates from previous New Hampshire ballots for ineligibility in the recent past:  Abdul K. Hassan, Esq., and Sal Mohamed, a chemical engineer from Iowa.

New Hampshire Rep. Harry Accornero had alluded to the removal of Mohamed following the hearing of the Ballot Law Commission on the 18th and charged that body’s members as traitors to the U.S. Constitution.  He stated that Obama is “a fraud.”  Video of the hearing and its aftermath is here and here.

At the hearing, Atty. Orly Taitz presented evidence that Obama is using a social security number not assigned to him and claimed that the long-form birth certificate image presented to the public on April 27, 2011 is a forgery.  Many analysts in various fields and others have agreed.

Some are saying that the Ballot Law Commission hearing was “illegal.“  An email response from Rep. Timothy Horigan cited the presumed primary date as January 8, 2012, when it is actually January 10.  The video questions whether or not Horigan still holds a position as a state representative.

New Hampshire Attorney General Michael Delaney has now asked the State Police to investigate “how members of the House conducted themselves” at the Ballot Law Commission hearing.  No investigation of Obama’s alleged crimes has been launched to anyone’s knowledge.

To date, Accornero is the only member of the New Hampshire General Court to have called Obama out in the commission of treason.  House Majority Leader DJ Bettencourt accused Orly Taitz of unbecoming conduct and stated that her claims were “ridiculous.” Bettencourt also admitted to attempting to influence other House members to “disassociate” themselves from Taitz.  Does Bettencourt believe that his House compatriots are incapable of considering Taitz’s evidence for themselves?

Letter dated July 19, 2011 from New Hampshire Assistant Secretary of State Karen Ladd to Abdul Hassan, Esq., stating that "this office will not accept a filing from any person who is not a natural born citizen."

Page 1 of letter from Abdul Hassan, Esq. dated July 18, 2011, to New Hampshire Secretary of State William M. Gardner requesting an "advisory opinion" as to his candidacy for President of the United States given his foreign birth

Page 2 of Hassan's letter to the New Hampshire Secretary of State stating that the "natural born provision has been trumped and invalidated by the equal protection guarantee of the Fifth Amendment..."

Final page of Hassan's letter admitting that he is a "naturalized citizen" and asking if he could gain a position on New Hampshire's ballot

Hassan’s letter states, in part (pp. 1-2):

I satisfy all the constitutional requirements for holding the office of President except the natural born citizen requirement contained in Article II, § 1, Clause 5, of the U.S. Constitution — I am a naturalized American citizen.  On March 5, 2008, I commenced an action in federal court challenging the validity of the natural born provision in light of modern constitutional jurisprudence.  (See case documents at www.abdulhassanforpresident.com/second_circuit).  In that case, I am seeking a declaratory judgment that the invidious national origin discrimination in the natural born provision has been trumped and invalidated by the equal protection guarantee of the Fifth Amendment which prohibits national original discrimination, and the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment which placed natural born and naturalized citizens on equal footing.  Race and national origin are the only two classifications that are subject to the highest level of judicial scrutiny (strict scrutiny) and almost every law (or probably every law) subject to strict scrutiny by the U.S. Supreme Court in the last sixty years has been declared invalid.

Page 3 of Hassan’s letter asks Gardner:

Assuming I satisfy all requirements for a place on your state’s ballot for the 2012 presidential elections, either as an independent candidate or the nominee of a party, whether I would nonetheless be denied a place on said ballot because of my status as a naturalized American citizen?

Two months ago, the Federal Elections Commission, which Hassan referenced in his letter, stated that Hassan could “become a candidate” despite his birth in a foreign country.

A Declaration of Candidacy from Sal Mohamed in 2007 filed with the New Hampshire Secretary of State was stamped “RECEIVED” by the New Hampshire Secretary of State on October 19, 2007.  At the top, it was marked in someone’s handwriting:

11-5-07
Disqualified
Refund requested
not a U.S. Citizen

An apparently angry Obama supporter left the following comment on November 24, 2011, Thanksgiving Day:

havocovah

96.54.226.254

Never quite sure if Sharon is stupid or just woefully misinformed.

Of course anyone that matters already knows that willingly withdrew after the AH brought to his attention that as he was, by his own admission, born in Egypt, he was ineligible.

He was not denied a place on the ballot, he removed his application himself.

But I certainly don’t expect Rondeau to actually be honest enough to admit her error, or even to allow this past moderation. After all, can’t let honesty out of the bag when there’s fame and paypal donations on the line.

The Post & Email has seen no evidence that Hassan has “willingly withdrawn” from the presidential race, seeing as the Federal Elections Commission has stated that he could “solicit funds” for his presidential campaign.  As of November 22, 2011, Hassan was a declared presidential candidate for 2012.

Hassan was not born in Egypt, but rather, Guyana.  It was Sal Mohamed who was born in Egypt.  Therefore, the commenter’s statements are unclear to this editor.  If proof that either Hassan or Mohamed withdrew from their respective presidential races can be provided, it will be published.

The Post & Email wishes to note that this newspaper is not run with money, but rather, by a desire to expose corruption in government at all levels.  Neither “fame” nor “Paypal donations” are significant enough to be a motivating factor.

    U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 3 states:

    “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

    Rep. Harry Accornero has made the accusation of Treason, all we need is one more Patriot ?

    If this isn’t a war for the salvation of our Republic, then nothing is!

    I attended the meeting and would like to point out a few things. First of all NH is an open carry state and yes there were citizens there that were armed. There is no metal detector at the door. There was also a capitol police officer in attendance, who by the way did not have to nor did he intervene because there no threats made to anyone. There were just a few pissed off natural born Citizens.

    In all of this with New Hampshire you know what I smell…HYPOCRISY. And all of it is driven by the Manchester Marxists, Concord Communists and Nashua Nazis (basically transfers from Massachusetts) who have driven New Hampshire into its sad new state that it is in.

    The NH SOS takes bho’s sworn statement on the ‘Declaration of candidacy’ that he is a ‘natural born citizen’ at face value and place bho name on the ballot.
    However, when it is challenged on 11/18/11, they should have observed their own rules and investigate bho’s natural born citizen status but they didn’t!

    They are trying to get away with it a second time! NH voters, don’t let them!

    It seems ludicrous that the State Police would be used to investigate “misbehavior” at a public meeting, and totally ignore evidence of: Social Security Fraud, Draft Registration Fraud and uttering a Forged Document (i.e. Birth Certificate). Talk about mis-allocation of resources.

    Attorney Taitz Right – N.H. Ballot Law Commission Dem Biased & Illegal

    In a prior comment I noted that Taitz’s contention that all five members of the Ballot Law Commission are from one party appeared to be incorrect. Based on what was indicated on the N.H. State government website, the Ballot Law Commission gave the appearance of being fully bipartisan as required by state law.

    However, video blogger, KeyanBornObamAcorn, noticed inconsistencies with the government posted information about the Ballot Law Commission and decided to investigate deeper. He called the N.H. Secretary of State to question him personally and also checked into the actual party affiliation of the individual members of the commission.

    If his video report does not appear above, use this url: http://youtu.be/Nm_hDsEjj8Y

    He noted that when one of the republican regular members of the commission resigned, she was replaced by an alternate who is a democrat rather than the available republican alternate as required by law (N H Code 665:1).

    He further noted that commissioner James French claims to be a republican, but, for the last six years, has only made political contributions to democrats, including four contributions after having been appointed a commissioner, something which is explicitly prohibited by law (N H Code 665:3).

    665:3 Political Contributions Prohibited. No ballot law commission member shall make a contribution, as defined in RSA 664:2, to any candidate for office or political committee.

    So, not only is James French misrepresenting his political affiliation (at best, a RINO), but his illegal political contributions have disqualified him from being a commission member, making the recent hearing invalid.

    To recap: the recent N H Ballot Law Commission hearing was invalid because the commission was NOT politically balanced as required by law (4 democrat members to only 1 republican), and one member was in clear violation of the “no political contribution” law, thereby disqualifying himself from serving on the commission.

    Attorney Taitz is right, the American people deserve a rehearing.

    Please pay attention to these words and learn why no one seems to understand this issue:

    “I commenced an action in federal court challenging the validity of the natural born provision in light of modern constitutional jurisprudence.”

    and

    “In that case, I am seeking a declaratory judgment that the invidious national origin discrimination in the natural born provision has been trumped and invalidated by the equal protection guarantee of the Fifth Amendment which prohibits national original discrimination, and the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment which placed natural born and naturalized citizens on equal footing.”

    The above is FALSE because it is physically impossible for the 14th Amendment to place naturalized and natural born on equal footing, and proves the incompetence and failure of people to comprehend SCIENCE, and natural reality, and Natural Law. The above statement is equivalent to saying that the courts and Congress have the power to define the Laws of Nature like gravity or political rights with a decree, and that the Constitution can be altered or abolished by mere statutory authority or Judges opinion, or that the 14th Amendment was intended to rewrite Article II nbC qualifications, which is false.

    This would be like saying that since the government says that the earth is the center of the solar system instead of the sun, that makes it “legal” so it must be true and it must be reality. The fact is that political rights are NATURAL RIGHTS that must be inherited from a citizen father or parents. That is the entire point of Article II nbC clause and that neither the Courts nor Congress nor voters can declare who is qualified to be the President. Only nature can determine this. The 14th Amendment cannot place naturalized on an equal footing with “natural born” and the courts have never done this. That would be like saying that Federal Reserve Notes are naturally the same as gold or silver. It is not possible to use Positive Law to “legally trump” Natural Law or reality.

    The argument made by Mohamed is that the purpose and intent of the 14th Amendment and U.S. codes and jurisprudence has been to eliminate Natural Law and Natural Political Rights (as if that were even physically possible) and replace it with Positive Law legal privileges so that we are rolled back in time to pre-1776 and have a monarchy form of government of legal privilege (nobility) of artificial legal political titles for the privileged few instead of “all men are created (born) equal” (politically) as is declared in the Declaration of Independence.

    The entire reason we even have a Positive Law legal system is to preserve and protect the Natural Law political rights of the People. That was the entire point of the revolution of 1776 and the inclusion of “natural born” as a modifying adjective to “Citizen”.

    It is “natural born” Citizen in Article II, meaning a specific one of the general class of citizens that are created by nature (born to citizen father or parents) from one of the States of the Union (hence the use of capitol “C”), not a Federal territory “citizen subject”, and not “natural born citizen” an English common law legal term referring to a “subject” of the king that can mean any privilege of citizenship that is bestowed by the state.

    Naturalized citizens (those who rely on place of birth for their citizenship due to foreign father or parents) are by definition not “natural born”. Now look up in a Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856 edition under “N” and read what it says under Naturalized Citizen.

    If one would to go the NH ballot website where ballot names are listed one would see “Disqualified” next to Sal Mohammed’s name. Not “Whithdrawn” as some others did. And my personal emails between Karen Ladd and myself clearly show she “Disqualified” him as not being a “natural born Citizen”.
