Blogger Proposes Eligibility Bill for All State Legislatures

HAVE YOUR STATE SENATOR OR REPRESENTATIVE INTRODUCE THIS BILL!

by Butterdezillion

How many people in each state will speak to their legislators about introducing an eligibility bill? Don't wait for someone else to do it!

(Jan. 20, 2011) — One thing that people on all sides of the Presidential eligibility issue have agreed on since the very beginning is that our current system is unclear on who is supposed to vet Constitutional eligibility. Everybody assumes that somebody else will do it so it never gets done, which is unacceptable to anybody who truly cares to have our Constitution followed.

I, like many others, have been watching with frustration as all attempts to see the Constitution upheld have been snubbed by Secretaries of State, the courts, and Congress. This issue has exposed serious problems above and beyond the eligibility issue itself.

With input from lawyers and other concerned people, I have drafted a bill that I would like state legislatures to pass. I’ve tried my best to address the major problems exposed by what we’ve all been through on this issue: permission to view the records, standing in court, document tampering, definition of “natural born Citizen,” transparency, and accountability for government officials to obey the law.

I believe those are issues that would not be addressed by a bill that required only a birth certificate to be shown. Requiring a birth certificate to be shown is a good step in the right direction but still leaves much undone:

  1. We need a definition of “natural born Citizen.” A SOS can’t determine eligibility without knowing the exact criteria. And the Constitution says that only the judiciary can interpret it and decide all cases and controversies arising from it.
  2. We need a way to hold the Secretaries of State accountable to obey the Constitution’s requirements. New Jersey required the SOS to verify Constitutional eligibility and even though the SOS allowed foreign-born Roger Calero onto the ballot, the courts ruled that Leo Donofrio could not sue her to see the law obeyed.
  3. We need a way to identify documents that have been falsified by government officials. Bear in mind that there is evidence of possible tampering in the Passport Office, Social Security Administration, Selective Service Administration, and the Hawaii DOH – the only government agencies which claim to have personal records for Obama. As more and more people are caught providing forged documents, the integrity of the records becomes more and more critical.

Those things have been addressed by this bill, which is posted here.  A summary of the bill’s features, which explains the rationale behind the bill, is here.   

And now we arrive at crunch time. I have already missed Nebraska’s deadline for this bill to be introduced, and many states’ deadlines are within the next three weeks. We need people from as many states as possible to ask their state legislators to introduce this bill or one similar to it. With the electoral wins, the best chances for success are probably in Alabama, Arizona (although they are already carrying such a heavy burden), Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Most of these states have deadlines approaching in the next month, with Idaho, Kansas, North Dakota, and Wyoming deadlines in January (North Dakota’s is the earliest at 1-24).

So we need immediate action. My suggestion is for people to copy the two pages I linked to above and send them as attachments in an e-mail to as many of your state legislators as possible, with a short personal note explaining why this issue is important to you. Enlist others to do the same – relatives, ping lists, friends, Tea Party patriots, etc. The immediate need is to get legislators who will introduce the bill before the deadline. Let them know we want to see action on this.

Once the bill has been introduced, we can work together to make sure the legislators are informed about the issues surrounding this. I will do whatever I can to help, as will a lot of others, I’m sure. But the first step is getting the bill introduced, and it must be done very, very soon.

One note: I believe Texas and some other states may already have bills introduced which require only the birth certificate to be shown. I would urge people in those states to maybe try to gently tweak the existing bill, with the approval of the one who introduced the bill. We’re a team, and we can do what needs to be done if we work together with dedication and appreciation for those who are willing to stick their necks out on this critical issue.

    Background: the Georgia House is primarily good ol’ boys and RINO’s plus one libertarian. The libertarian has lots of good bills in the hopper including HB37, below, but votes against everyone else’s bills, consequently . . .
    To those from whom I have plagiarized, remember that to emanate is the highest form of flattery.

    January 25, 2011

    Representatives Allison, Beardon, Brockway, Byrd, Casas, Clark, J., Collins, D.,
    Davis, S., Franklin, Harden, B., Hatfield, Hill, Horne, Jerguson, Maxwell,
    McBrayer, Neal, Peake, Ralston, Rice, Sheldon, Williamson by FAX:

    Representative Franklin has introduced HB37 for the purpose of assuring compliance with the Constitutional requirements for qualifying future U. S. presidents.

    This issue, or lack thereof, has grown to national prominence among conservative citizens and on both sides of the mainstream media. It has been a point of contention for the entire duration of the present administration causing rancor and discontent in a large majority of the population. Senior military officers have been jailed challenging the current president’s qualifications. That is reason enough to pass this bill so the issue will never rise again.

    However there have been insinuations that liberties were taken with the sitting president’s records concerning Passport Office, Social Security Administration, Selective Service Administration, and the Hawaii DHOH. In order to preclude any future administration from mischief in this arena the following mandate must be added to the bill: the computer embedded transaction log for the records must be shown.

    It will be unconscionable on your part to block this bill based on petty partisan principles. I urge you for the sake of Georgia and Georgians to set aside your differences and pass this bill. Please join with other states that are processing similar legislation and bring this bill to the Governor in this year of the current session.

    Sincerely,

    M. J. Blanchard

    They made a really bad fake COLB and the HDOH has already indirectly confirmed it as a forgery in at least 2 different ways…. and yet it “sticks” because we have no legal avenue for the people to legally challenge it. That’s why we desperately need states to pass a bill like this one, since it not only gives the requirements concretely but also provides the mechanism for challenges to be brought. Without that mechanism in place, they could come up with a cartoon for a BC and nobody could do a thing about it.

    We can’t place confidence in any candidate contesting eligibility, because those contests are decided by the SOS generally, and Soros has been working to put communist SOS’s in place. Challenges that make it to court can’t even be counted on, unless the candidate who is challenging eligibility has a “real chance” at winning the entire election – as the courts have dealt with Alan Keyes.

    So we need to have a bill which deals with these issues explicitly. That’s why not just any bill will work. That’s why I’ve spent a lot of time trying to undersand the legal arguments that have been used to justify the stonewalling we’ve been through. We need to have explicit requirements, a mechanism for the issues to be resolved in court if any person challenges eligibility, and a mechanism for the people to hold their state officials accountable if they disobey the laws. We have seen slick excuses that boggle the mind, and as long as a law doesn’t specifically disallow those excuses, government officials will ignore the laws at will.

    I believe Abercrombie is stumbling now because he believes there is a way that the forgery he planned to use (when he chose to bring up this subject with great bravado 2 weeks before giving his stumbling interview) would be shown for a forgery. There must be some non-manipulable log, or else security for these records is a joke.

    “We already know that Obama’s passport file was illegally accessed 3 times in early 2008. The government would like us to believe that the record of Obama’s citizenship was not compromised. Well…. then they shouldn’t mind showing us exactly what actions have been taken on Obama’s passport file.”

    We also know that Lt. Quarles Harris Jr., 24, a key witness in a federal probe into passport information stolen from the State Department was fatally shot in front of a District of Columbia church on April 18, 2009. The case remains unsolved.

    > But if they have to show the computer-embedded transaction log for the records, it will reveal exactly who did what with the record and when.

    That only moves the core of the problem. Because these transaction logs can also be falsified. They just need one of the database administrators complicit in the cover-up and there is simply no data from the system that you can trust. I doubt they have protocols in place that even remotely compare with what banks do (audit trails which are independent of the database and thus can’t be manipulated by the database administrators).

    So these transaction records would only serve to give an impression of false security, like “if the TR’s say the base records have not been doctored, you can be sure all data are legit”. Why would we trust in these data any more than in the data there already are?

    Interesting….would they really dare another forgery? first they have to see if a state has the guts to pass such a bill. If none pass such a bill then its in like flint again. if that is the case then people like me and you need to arm themselves and meet with tens of thousands of other individuals in washington. btw, here is a nice little slogan for people who visit cnn, msnbc, fox, and all other faux news agencies. basically it is meant to say, “explain this felony, or shut up!” In other words, don’t tell me about healthcare, unemployment, the Fed, how great unions are, etc., but let’s kill the snake and start afresh. If this slogan becomes ubiquitous, and people see it on many discussion forums it may lead to a growing number of people actually looking up what it all means AND seeing that there are alot of people out there of like mind – Ware NOT GOING TO PUT UP WITH THIS – NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU LIE! BTW, call your senator and congressman and ask them to explain it. Felony use of someone else’s ssn is easy to understand and we have excellent proof because it comes from the government’s own selective service website! The people in washington only understand power. The people who are serious about a constitutional republic need to flex their muscles in massive collective demonstration.

    I can’t believe even these guys can make a forgery with all the required information on it that a 1961 real long-form Hawaii birth certificate had, and make it stick. Too much traceability through names, signatures, Drs. offices and practice, hospital records, nurse or attendants name and signature, local registrars name and signature, state registrars name and signature, parents occupation, etc……there is a lot of suff to make fit under close inspection.

    Also, what excuse will they use for not releasing a perfectly innocent, nothing to hide BC for over two years, fighting numerous lawsuits and sending a Military Hero, LTC Terry Lakin, to prison?

    I don’t think there is going to be a really good fake..too late.

    barky asked: what do they want me to do? go around with my birth certificate glued to my forehead?

    yeah, we do.

  9. Papoose   Thursday, January 20, 2011 at 10:30 PM

    makes me wonder if the public at large who qualify: NBC, 35 years of age, residing in America for 14 consecutive years should throw our hats in the ring. Imagine that!

    We need an official definition of Natural Born Citizen as respects the United Sttaes of America. Two Citizen Parents (documented) at the time of your birth when you were born on American Soil.

    The incoming American immigrants as well as the undocumented illegal aliens will thank us and honor us. They’re children and their children’s children lives and liberty depend on it.

    No one but a full blooded American can command our Military and expedite Executive Orders. There is only one way you can be a full blooded natural born American citizen. Its a birthright you pass on. It cannot be acquired.

    You’ll be sorry, if you don’t think this through. Claim it and Proclaim it. Your future depends on it.

    If barky doesn’t come up with his American birth certificate, his daughters will never enjoy natural born citizenship status. He owes it to them first and foremost.

    One of the key elements we need to try to have at least one state pass is to require the transaction logs for whatever documents are required. Before the 2010 election Soros was saying that Obama needed to be ditched. After Abercrombie was elected governor of HI we now find out that Obama is hoping to spend a billion dollars on campaigning. Something happened between there. I believe they have a forgery ready to show and are waiting for a state to require them to show it and voila! their problems are all gone.

    But if they have to show the computer-embedded transaction log for the records, it will reveal exactly who did what with the record and when.

    We already know that Obama’s passport file was illegally accessed 3 times in early 2008. The government would like us to believe that the record of Obama’s citizenship was not compromised. Well…. then they shouldn’t mind showing us exactly what actions have been taken on Obama’s passport file.

    It’s a common-sense requirement in a time when more and more people are being caught creating forged documents for illegals. Document fraud experts say the only way to know whether a document from a government office is legitimate is to audit the transactions on it. Because a fake birth certificate can be used to get other forms of documentation (such as passports), all the records can be contaminated by forgeries in a different agency. We can’t check all the documents on every person when giving driver’s licenses, etc. But we SHOULD be able to do at least that much for the person who will hold the nuclear football.

    I don’t know if any of the proposed legislation to date includes this element. I’m just really afraid that without this requirement a bill could actually play into Obama’s hands. I’ve spent a lot of time dealing with Hawaii bureaucrats. The HDOH has indirectly confirmed that Obama’s birth certificate was amended in 2006 and is therefore not legally valid, and yet Fukino was willing to let everybody think that they have a VALID claim that Obama was born in Hawaii. As Sharon has documented here, the HDOH has not been following their disclosure laws for some time. The Ombudsman’s office has told me that the handwritten birth index which was required to be retained permanently was just the name and the location of the file so they destroyed the index without bothering to ask anybody’s permission or to document the destruction. That’s supposed to make me feel good about how the HDOH handles its records? I don’t put anything past them. They would be willing to make a forgery for Obama, just like the Selective Service Administration did and just like the Passport Office most likely forged a DOS “cable” making false claims about passport applications being destroyed (without asking permission and without leaving any record of the destruction. Sound familiar?)

    I believe the reason Abercrombie is faltering now, after originally bringing up the subject as if he would just triumphantly come forward with Obama’s records, is because he doesn’t know whether it is safe to bank on a forgery or not, because he doesn’t know if a state will pass a bill like this one. If he makes statements about what they’ve got, banking on the forgery, and then a bill like this is passed he could be in big trouble.

    He’s waiting to see if we will out-smart them. For the sake of the country, we NEED to out-smart them.

    If there is a way to add that requirement to any existing bills that would be wonderful. If not, we’ll make sure to push in other states. We only need one state to have a law like this, and it will hold the whole country’s bureaucrats accountable.

    Am I wrong to assume that with Andy Martin putting his hat in the ring to run as a Republican candidate, he is now positioned to challenge anybody in any state, who tries to run as a candidate, to show their proof of qualification? Or am I imagining things. Even if he is not chosen as the party candidate, simply by being a candidate, would that not give him standing to challenge any other candidate of any party trying to get on a ticket? Hopefully he will switch to independent, if not the official Repubican candidate….but I am hoping he has now put himself into the game, and can challenge with standing anybody of any party, as illegally taking votes from him and other candidates, if they are illegally on the ballot..

    Georgia has filed HB37 for hearings by the House Judiciary Committee.
