hughly unlikey, I don’t even think the current Congress will have the spines to remove him when he fails to produce the document to back his oh, so fictional story of his nativity location, i.e., Kapi’olani Hosp. Or was it Queen’s. Oh Heck, who can keep up. He’s claimed them both, now that is a miracle birth if I ever heard one.

This could get interesting. My bet is that O will keep himself off the ballot which will look mighty suspicious.

I guess when you can claim the god-like attribute of omnipresence, that's plausible.

Well, HI can reform the short form COLB to add the hospital, but they're sure going to have a tough time getting the doc/witness signatures affixed to it, teeheehee

I read the legislation that came out of the Senate & it is a smart bill. Worded very well as to not fold under scrutiny.

Arizona Senate approves 'birther' bill

PHOENIX - The Arizona Senate has approved a revised bill requiring presidential candidates to prove they are U.S. citizens eligible to run for the office.

The bill approved Wednesday gives candidates additional ways to prove they meet the constitutional requirements to be president.

It was prompted by the ongoing claim by some that there is no proof President Barack Obama was born in the United States and is therefore ineligible to be president.

Democrats argued the bill exceeds the state's authority and say state officials are not fully qualified to determine the validity of a candidate's documents.

Republicans argue the U.S. Constitution gives state legislatures the right to determine how federal elections are conducted.

The bill now goes to the House for a final vote.

Drudge probably monitors O.R.Y.R. but doesn't want to link directly to the site. So, he waits to see when another source picks it up.

Telephone: (602) 926 -3171

TO: MEMBERS OF THE SENATE

DATE: March 24, 2011

SUBJECT: Strike everything amendment to H.B. 2177, relating to presidential candidates; qualifications; affidavit

________________________________________________________________________

Purpose

Requires a presidential candidate that is for running for office to prove their eligibility to run and hold office by providing documentation that proves citizenship, age and if the candidate meets residency requirements.

Background

Article II, Section I of the Constitution of the United States, states that no person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

Section 16-226 of Arizona Revised Statute defines nonpartisan elections as an election that is held by a special district and that is not held concurrently with the general election.

At a primary election, each political party entitled and intending to make nominations for the ensuing general or special election is required to, if it desires to have the names of its candidates printed on the official ballot at the general or special election, nominate its candidates for all elective, senatorial, congressional, state, judicial, county and precinct offices to be filled at the election (A.R.S. § 16-301). A nomination petition as defined in section 16-314 means the form or forms used for obtaining the required number of signatures of qualified electors, which is circulated by or on behalf of the person wishing to become a candidate for a political office.

There is no anticipated fiscal impact to the state General Fund associated with this legislation.

Provisions

1. Requires any person submitting a nomination paper for the purposes of being a candidate in a primary or nonpartisan election to include in the affidavit, reference to and attachment of all documents necessary to show that the person will be qualified at the time of the election to hold the office the person seeks.

2. Prohibits the filing officer to accept the nomination paper of a candidate if the person does not provide the affidavit and attachments required in this for proving eligibility to hold office.

3. Requires a national political party committee for a presidential candidate for a party that is entitled to continued representation on the ballot to provide to the Secretary of State, written notice of that political party’s nomination of its candidates for president and vice-president.

4. Requires a national political party committee to submit an affidavit of the presidential candidate in which the presidential candidate states the candidate’s citizenship and age and is required to attach this affidavit to the affidavit documents that prove the candidate’s age, citizenship and if the candidate has been a U.S. resident for fourteen years.

5. Requires the affidavit of the presidential candidate include references to and attachment of the following, which shall be sworn to under penalty of perjury:

a) a sworn statement or form that identifies the presidential candidate’s places of residence in the U.S. for the preceding fourteen years; and

b) a certified birth certificate that includes:

i. the date and place of birth,

ii. the names of the hospital and the attending physician, and

iii. signatures of any witnesses in attendance if applicable.

6. Prohibits the Secretary of State from placing a presidential candidate’s name on the ballot in this state if the candidate or the national political party committee fails to submit and swear to the documents listed in this section.

7. Prohibits the Secretary of State from placing a presidential candidate’s name on the ballot in this state if the Secretary of State believes that the proof of the documents submitted and sworn to do not meet the citizenship, age and residency requirements.

8. Permits a member of the House of Representatives, a member of the Senate or any other citizen of this state to initiate an action to enforce this section.

9. Makes conforming changes.

10. Becomes effective on the general effective date.

Amendments Adopted by Committee

1. Removes parental requirements needed to run for or hold office or to be put on the ballot.

2. Adopted strike everything amendment.

“The bill approved Wednesday gives candidates additional ways to prove they meet the constitutional requirements to be president”.

when obama refused to give his long form to the Hawaiian election office, he was able to “override” them with a private meeting with democratic leadership officals in Hawaii.

It appears obama is still one step ahead of Arizona, the current short form is now the new legal document. He will submit it and demand that they accept it.

Dr. Taitz reports, in addition to the action in AZ...

"I got a phone call from Lyle Rowland, sponsor of the presidential eligibility certification bill in Missouri.The bill finally passed the committees and is going to a full vote of the house this week or next week. Demand that your state representatives and senators vote for the bill.

I got a phone call from Leo Berman, Texas state senator, sponsor of the presidential eligibility certification bill in TX. Mr. Berman is extremely upset with members of the committee refusing to vote on the bill. They just seat on it, while they know that majority of of the state representatives and senators are willing to vote for it. Call each and every committee member and demand scheduling of the bill for vote tomorrow, immediate passing of the bill. Demand answers, whether committee members received some consideration or were intimidated into not bringing thebill to a vote. Call public integrity of unit of the office of the TX Attorney General Greg Abbott and demand immediate investigation, whether committee members received any considaration or were intimidated into not bringing this bill to a vote.

We need the same investigation in each state.

As the sessions are ending we need all the bill out of committees as original bills or striker bills this week or next week."

He'd have to find a way around this:

b) a certified birth certificate that includes:

i. the date and place of birth,

ii. the names of the hospital and the attending physician, and

iii. signatures of any witnesses in attendance if applicable."

That was my first thought, too. I remember trying to contact her (while she was still the Secretary of State)and/or her office before the election to see what the requirements were. Never did get an answer. I do LOVE her as a Governor so she'd better sign it!!

There is going to be a Constitutional challenge to this, based on Art. IV.

“Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.”

Hawaii was admitted as a state—a mistake in my opinion—but we are stuck with it. Hawaii will assert that this is the way they keep their Vital Statistic records under their laws, and the COLB is our way-—it is thus official when it comes with the State Seal. No other state can, under the Constitution, reject this under Art 4.

There have been some court cases that weaken this position, but it will surely be argued that drivers licenses issued in Hawaii are recognized as valid in other states and by TSA. Death certificates are recognized by SS and commercial companies. It seems unlikely that birth certificates will be cast into an exceptional category.

SCOTUS’s conservatives will surely rule in favor of Hawaii’s state’s rights to be treated equally as to their birth certificate forms.

Running for office isn't a Constitutionally protected right so far as I know.

Barry, by his choice, will run for office. If he chooses to be placed on the ballot in AZ, he will have to conform to their state law. He is free to choose not to be placed on their ballot.

What obama attorneys are going to say is that the new “certified” short form is backed up with a document on file in Hawaii with all the necessary information. Of course obama will not release that document(long form) for privacy reasons.

I do not believe that obama was born in Hawaii and does not have a legal long form.

obama is not and never will be the legal President of the United States.

It appears they did, just as Leo pointed out the sneaky language a while back. It appears to me, at this point, that this is their "compromise."

I should add, that it could be they realized that they (state Legislatures) do not have the authority to define the requirement for who may be considered a "natural born Citizen" as required for AII,S1,C5 of the U.S. Constitution.

The U.S. Congress tried to do just that back in 1790, and reversed themselves in 1795.

Arizona, aka The RAT Pimp McLame, did nothing but insure Hussein’s right to hold office. HI has said this digital bs is their only official BC proof (lie!) so he’s good to go without the parental requirement attached. Now, the talking points will be, “But, but, gee whiz, what do you Birthers want?!? You wanted this bill and we gave it to you and The Won is still eligibile, so there, neener, neener!!!”

No, this is NOT going to help our cause. It is a major 47 steps backward.

You are correct that running for office is not a right, IMHO, but the courts may see it as an equal protection/equal opportunity issue.

If Obi is denied a ballot position, he will sue. Then the courts will rule that the Hawaii BC is binding on AZ and every other state under Article IV.

AZ courts will be over-rulled by the Feds. Some idiot lawyer will argue that birth certificates issued under state seal are the same as driver’s licenses. Or that the Passport Office recognizes all BCs equally from every state.
