“I WILL NOT LIVE UNDER TYRANNY”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Sep. 16, 2012) — A challenge to the placement of Barack Obama’s name on the Illinois ballot for the General Election was filed on Thursday with the Illinois State Board of Elections on September 13, 2012.
The challenge was filed under Illinois statute 10-8 ILS 5/10-8, which allows five business days “after the last day for filing the certificate of nomination or nomination papers or petition for a public question.” The law further states:
Any legal voter of the political subdivision or district in which the candidate or public question is to be voted on, or any legal voter in the State in the case of a proposed amendment to Article IV of the Constitution or an advisory public question to be submitted to the voters of the entire State, having objections to any certificate of nomination or nomination papers or petitions filed, shall file an objector’s petition together with a copy thereof in the principal office or the permanent branch office of the State Board of Elections, or in the office of the election authority or local election official with whom the certificate of nomination, nomination papers or petitions are on file. In the case of nomination papers or certificates of nomination, the State Board of Elections, election authority or local election official shall note the day and hour upon which such objector’s petition is filed, and shall, not later than 12:00 noon on the second business day after receipt of the petition, transmit by registered mail or receipted personal delivery the certificate of nomination or nomination papers and the original objector’s petition to the chairman of the proper electoral board designated in Section 10-9 hereof, or his authorized agent, and shall transmit a copy by registered mail or receipted personal delivery of the objector’s petition, to the candidate whose certificate of nomination or nomination papers are objected to, addressed to the place of residence designated in said certificate of nomination or nomination papers.
Illinois resident and registered voter Michael D. Jackson, along with two other objectors, submitted in persona a “Memorandum of Complaint of Election Fraud against Tazewell County Democratic Party; Illinois Democratic Party and Democratic National Committee (DNC); and Request for Investigation by Attorney General of Illinois.”
The Illinois Board of Elections has posted “Barack Hussein Obama” as a candidate for president for the November 6 election but notes that an objection is “pending.”
Jackson had called the Illinois Board of Elections and had been told that “there was no valid reason that a ballot objection could not be filed.” Jackson wrote the objection himself in approximately 48 hours, and a hearing is scheduled for Monday at 10:30 a.m. CDT in both Springfield and Chicago, which locations will be connected by video-link.
The Chicago location is the James R. Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph St., Suite 14-100, Chicago. The alternate hearing location is 2329 S. MacArthur Blvd., Springfield, IL.
Jackson told The Post & Email that he came away with the impression that Monday had been set aside for any ballot objection which might arise in the routine course of business.
An official Certification of Nomination was signed by Antonio Villaraigosa, Chair, Democratic National Convention, and Alice Travis Germond, Secretary of same. In 2008, Germond, in conjunction with Rep. Nancy Pelosi, had signed two different Certification of Nomination forms listing Obama and Biden as candidates, with one version containing “legally qualified” wording which went to the state of Hawaii and the second version to the remaining 49 states.
Jackson has contacted his congressman, Aaron Schock, on several occasions regarding his concerns about Obama’s ineligibility under Article II of the U.S. Constitution and the declaration of fraud made by Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse about Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form. He is concerned that at his previous ballot challenge, the state of Illinois included a birth certificate as “proof” that Obama meets the qualifications for president which has now been declared a forgery by the Cold Case Posse.
He has contacted Tazewell County Sheriff Robert Huston by letter seven times, from whom he has received no response; all 100 U.S. Senators, both Illinois senators separately, and “multiple congressmen.” He asked the District Office Manager at Rep. and Speaker of the House John Boehner’s office to contact Arpaio’s office but was refused. “He went as far as to describe what his job is, but he said the person who oversees the legal matters wouldn’t even do it. I don’t even have the words to describe that,” Jackson said.
Jackson is aware that a ballot objection filed in Kansas was withdrawn on Friday after the objector cited “intimidation” and “animosity.” A hearing is scheduled in Topeka for 10:00 a.m. CDT, but it is unclear if the specific objection will be pursued. Atty. Orly Taitz is scheduled to fly to Topeka for the hearing to present evidence of criminality in regard to Obama’s birth certificate and Social Security number.
“Everything is at stake” in regard to Obama’s holding of the office of president as far as Jackson is concerned. He has put aside a sum of money which would have provided for his retirement to hire an attorney if one can be found to litigate his challenge against Obama. “I will not live under tyranny,” Jackson said. “We have no legitimate paperwork on Obama.”
