PURPOSE OF CONTACT
This is a formal complaint of election fraud against Lt. Gov. Brian E. Schatz, acting in a non-governmental role as Chair of the Democratic Party of Hawaii; and request for investigation of these charges by the Attorney General of Hawaii.
Specifically, under Hawaiian law, if the candidate for President of the United States (“POTUS”) from the major political party meets the federal requirements of the job, then election officials must print the candidate‟s name on the general election ballot. Under Article II, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution, the POTUS must be a Natural Born Citizen (“NBC”). To get Barack Obama‟s name on the general election ballot in 2008, Mr. Schatz formally submitted to Hawaiian election officials a Certification of Nomination swearing that Mr. Obama was “duly nominated” as the candidate for POTUS for the Democrat Party and had met the legal qualifications for the job. Accompanying that letter was the official Certification of Nomination of the DNC Services Corporation (“DNC”), signed by the Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, acting in her non-governmental role as Chair of the 2008 DNC Presidential nominating convention; and Alice Germond, Secretary of the Corporation. This DNC Certification contained the explicit words required by Hawaii law: the “candidate is legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution.” (DNC Rules also require the nominee must be Constitutionally qualified for the job.)
However, overwhelming circumstantial evidence points to the fact at the time Mr. Schatz signed and forwarded these Certifications neither he nor the DNC could have ascertained Mr. Obama is a NBC. And in Hawaii, swearing the Presidential nominee of the major political party is a NBC without ascertaining beforehand that he is, for the purpose of obtaining a place on the ballot, constitutes election fraud.
Citizens from Hawaii as well as from several other states, concerned that members of the DNC had submitted to state election officials these unauthenticated Certificates of Nomination, also contacted the DNC requesting to see the documentation on which they had based this Certification. Ms. Pelosi ignored all such requests. Claiming he was responding to requests that were directed to Secretary Germond, DNC General Counsel Joseph Sandler wrote, “The Democratic National Committee is not a state agency subject to the open records or freedom of information statutes of any state.” http://jbjd.wordpress.com/2009/09/20/the-cheese-stands-alone And, based on this fact that no law required him to produce the requested documentation; he chose not to produce this documentation.
Such display of hubris by members of any political party confronted by citizens concerned as to the legitimacy of the electoral process prescribed by law, cannot be tolerated in our Constitutional Republic.
Candidates representing the Democratic Party may not participate in the election process carried out in the state of Hawaii on behalf of the citizens of this state unless they obey our rules. And if our state law is to operate as anything more than form with no function, the state must now compel this political party to produce the evidence that was the basis for its Certification to Hawaii election officials that Barack Obama, the party‟s nominee for President, satisfied those laws requiring the candidate to be qualified for the job. Absent such evidence, it appears that by certifying such qualification, Mr. Schatz has perpetrated election fraud on the citizens of Hawaii.
WHEREFORE, I request an immediate investigation by the Attorney General of Hawaii.
(Note: This Complaint takes no position on whether Mr. Obama is a NBC.)
1. Under Hawaii law, only the nominee for POTUS from the major political party who has satisfied those Constitutional qualifications for office is entitled to have his or her name printed on the Hawaii general election ballot.
Hawaii Revised Statutes Title 2, Elections, Chapter 11
§11-113 Presidential ballots. … (c) All candidates for President and Vice President of the United States shall be qualified for inclusion on the general election ballot under either of the following procedures:
(1) In the case of candidates of political parties which have been qualified to place candidates on the primary and general election ballots, the appropriate official of those parties shall file a sworn application with the chief election officer not later than 4:30 p.m. on the sixtieth day prior to the general election, which shall include:
(B) A statement that each candidate is legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution;
(C) A statement that the candidates are the duly chosen candidates of both the state and the national party, giving the time, place, and manner of the selection.
Article II, section 1 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the POTUS must be a Natural Born Citizen. Thus, in order to satisfy federal requirements for POTUS that would entitle Mr. Obama‟s name to be printed on the Hawaii general election ballot, he must be a NBC.
2. On August 27, 2008 Brian E. Schatz, then Chair, Democratic Party of Hawaii, submitted 2 (two) separate Certifications of Nomination swearing Barack Obama, the D party candidate for POTUS, is a NBC, both of which Certifications he submitted to Hawaii elections officials so that they would print Mr. Obama‟s name on the Hawaii general election ballot.
Brian Schatz submitted to Hawaii elections officials 2 (two) documents with the heading, OFFICIAL CERTIFICATION OF NOMINATION. One Certification, dated August 27, 2008, bore the letterhead of the Democratic Party of Hawaii; the other, the letterhead of the DNC. In the first document, Mr. Schatz swore that Mr. Obama had been “duly nominated” as POTUS “by acclamation at the National Democratic Convention…” That is, he had been nominated in accordance with D party rules and procedures. (§11-113, (1)(C).) The second document, signed by then Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, in her „civilian‟ role as Chair of the 2008 DNC Convention, contained the line, he was “legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution.” (§11-113, (1)(B).)
The rules of the Democratic National Committee require the nominee must be eligible under the U.S. Constitution. http://s3.amazonaws.com/apache.3cdn.net/3e5b3bfa1c1718d07f_6rm6bhyc4.pdf (p.14, K.1 and 2). Article II, section 1 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the POTUS must be a Natural Born Citizen. Thus, Certifying Barack Obama was now the D party Presidential nominee was tantamount to verifying, he is Constitutionally qualified for the job, which means, he is a NBC.
State lawmakers failed to enact legislation that would require any state actor to check on the nominee‟s Constitutional eligibility. Thus, the express meaning of legislation requiring statements of candidate eligibility is clear: if the party gives us the name of its nominee for POTUS to be printed on the general election ballot and says, he is qualified to serve under the U.S. Constitution then, we must assume the party has determined its nominee is Constitutionally qualified for the job.
3. Mr. Schatz could not have ascertained Barack Obama is a NBC at any time prior to August 27, 2008, the date on the letter accompanying the Official DNC Certification of Nomination submitted to Hawaii election officials verifying he was a qualified candidate given the fact at this same time, the nominee insisted the evidence proffered to establish his Constitutional qualification for POTUS “prove[d]” he is only a “native citizen” but not a NBC.
Explicitly acknowledging public doubts whether he is a NBC, in June 2008 Mr. Obama, still just a candidate for the Presidential nomination of the Democratic Party, created and paid for a web site entitled, “Fight the Smears” (“FTS”), on which he posted a photocopy of a document entitled, “Certification of Live Birth” (“COLB”) from the State of HI. http://fightthesmears.com/articles/5/birthcertificate Mr. Obama proclaimed this photocopied and redacted Certification proves he is a “native citizen of the United States of America.” (While the actual title that appears within the document identifies this is a “Certification,” Mr. Obama wrote underneath the image, this is his “Official Birth Certificate.”)
(Note: While the text of FTS pertaining to Mr. Obama‟s qualification for POTUS remains the same, the accreditation in the footer changes. In the original version, the footer read, “Paid for by Barack Obama 2008.” Subsequently, the footer was altered to read, “Paid for by Obama for America”; which was then changed to read, “Paid for by Organizing for America, a Project of the Democratic National Committee.” This remains its current iteration. Also, at various times, the site address appeared as either a .com or, a .org. These changes in accreditation correspond exactly to the mandates of the U.S. Code, thus rendering this FTS web site a paid political advertisement. See DE-CODER RINGS (1 of 2) and (2 of 2).)
4. Mr. Schatz could not have ascertained Barack Obama is a NBC prior to August 27, 2008, the date the Official DNC Certification of Nomination was submitted to Hawaii elections officials verifying he was a NBC based on that internet COLB given the fact that 4 (four) months later, in January 2009, Defendant Obama repeated in pleadings he submitted to the federal court, the best evidence he was born in HI is the original document of that altered FTS COLB; yet he failed to submit this „original‟ COLB to the Clerk of the Court to be marked up as evidence and made a part of the official court record.
In January 2009, Mr. Obama, then President-elect, was the named Defendant in a case filed in federal district court, ostensibly seeking to determine whether the Uniform Code of Military Justice required a military Plaintiff to obey orders from a Commander in Chief he was not certain was a NBC. (Pleadings for Hollister v. Soetoro, Civil Action No. 1:08-cv-02254-JR, can be found on line at http://jbjd.wordpress.com/2009/08/09/rumors-lies-and-unsubstantiated-facts.) Mr. Obama submitted a Motion to Dismiss* predicated on Plaintiff‟s failure to establish the Court's jurisdiction; and to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. (The Defendant was represented by Attorney Robert F. Bauer of PERKINS COIE LLP, now White House Counsel, who signed the pleadings submitted to the court on his client‟s behalf.) Additionally, Mr. Obama asked the court to take judicial notice of the following „fact‟: he had publicly produced a certified copy of a birth certificate showing that he was born on August 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawaii. (Presumably, he used the phrase “publicly produced” referring to the fact, he posted that photocopied COLB on his FTS campaign web site.) Yet Defendant did not provide the court with the „original‟ COLB so that the Clerk could mark up the document as evidence and place it in the case record (where it would be subject to scrutiny by the Plaintiff or the judge‟s in-camera inspection). Instead, he tried to authenticate that internet COLB just by asking the court to take “notice” that Annenberg Political Fact Check (“APFC”) “conclude[d] that the birth certificate is genuine.” Id. (APFC is one of many such organizations wholly funded by the Annenberg Foundation, which also paid Mr. Obama‟s salary as Chair of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge from 1995-1999.) (And recall he wrote on FTS, this COLB only establishes he is a “native citizen,” anyway.)
*Technically, by incorporating into Defendant‟s Motion to Dismiss, another Motion for Judicial Notice of Evidence, Mr. Bauer was prima facie converting what was captioned Defendant‟s “Motion to Dismiss,” into a “Motion for Summary Judgment.” Fortunately, The Honorable Judge Robertson only granted Defendant‟s Dismissal, without judicial notice of the nativity claims visible on the FTS electronic advertising platform. For further explanation, see IDIOMS!
Given the fact that being Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives made convention Chair Pelosi 3rd in line of Presidential succession, with all of the gravitas incorporated therein, it defies credulity that in order to establish his bona fides for the job Mr. Obama would seek judicial notice of the lesser fact APFC says he is a native; but not offer into evidence the DNC Official Certification of Nomination Ms. Pelosi had submitted to election officials in the state of HI, swearing he is “legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution,” meaning, he is “Natural Born”; or any one of the dozens of her signed Certifications, which persuaded election officials throughout the country to print his name next to the D on the Presidential ballots in the 2008 general election.
Eschewing reliance on Ms. Pelosi‟s Certification, incredibly, Mr. Obama asked the court to take judicial notice of this information: APFC “note[d] a contemporaneous birth announcement published in a Honolulu newspaper.” In fact, APFC had only posted on their web site an image of an unattributed „newspaper announcement,‟ which phantom image they admitted they had usurped from the TexasDarlin (“td”) blog, where it was posted anonymously. With no further investigation into that „announcement,‟ APFC declared, “The evidence is clear: Barack Obama was born in the U.S.A.” http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html) (Note: Without notice, APFC subsequently redirected that suspect “td” link to the web site of a Hawaiian newspaper that has ceased publication. See OBAMA TRIES to WIPE SLATE CLEAN for 2012 RUN; and http://jbjd.org/2010/12/19/obama-cleans-slate-2012-run/comment-page-1/#comment-3433.) Like APFC, Defendant Obama omitted the name of this HI publication from court pleadings and failed to enter into the court record any physical evidence of a newspaper announcement, thus making his claims there was such an announcement, as with his claims the internet COLB was real, impossible to verify, too.
5. Mr. Schatz could not have ascertained Barack Obama is a NBC prior to August 27, 2008, the date on the Certification submitted to Hawaii elections officials verifying he was a NBC given the fact that as of August 2009, a year after submitting this Certification, the DNC advertised Mr. Obama is a “native citizen” but not a NBC.
A Google ad appearing on the internet in August 2009 asks this intriguing question followed by the answer: “Where was Obama Born? The President was Born in Hawaii. Learn More! www.FightTheSmears.com .” http://pages.suddenlink.net/tristanne/turks.png
Following the link provided in the ad takes you to a version of FTS which, according to the attribution in the footer, is “Paid for by Organizing for America, a Project of the Democratic National Committee.” Again, the FTS site only claims Mr. Obama is a native, not a NBC. And, again, the web site displays the image of that Certification which Mr. Obama had only described but not provided to the court thereby eliminating the possibility of an „in-camera‟ inspection.
Hawaii law requires candidates for public office whose names appear on any election ballot must be qualified for the job. In 2008, officials of the Democratic Party Certified to Hawaii election officials Barack Obama was Constitutionally qualified for the job of POTUS, causing these officials to print his name on the 2008 general election ballot. But the scant evidence available in the public record at the time of this Certification failed to establish he is a NBC (or even that he is a citizen). Citizens concerned the Democratic Party Certified Mr. Obama‟s qualifications without verification asked the party to disclose the basis for their Certification. The party said, „No.‟ Therefore, the AG must now intervene on behalf of these citizens to investigate these charges of election fraud. -end-
