Photo by Alexander Cohn / Concord Monitor Politicians get a lot harder to photograph once the Secret Service gets involved. In New Hampshire we are somewhat spoiled by our access to politicians when they are running for national office. Then contrast that with a visit by an elected President and the layers of security that accompany it to see a huge difference. When President Obama visited Nashua in February there were not only layers of security, but I ended up in the outer tier of access, photographing the event from the far side of a basketball court on a riser with about a dozen other photographers and cameramen. Way out there. This was not someone's living room. Though it wasn't the best vantage point, I rolled with it. As the questions came in from the audience President Obama seemed less an less at ease and his frame reflects that. This was the first time we had covered the President since he had been a candidate and the change seemed dramatic. --Alexander Cohn President Obama listens to a question on energy policy from former Congressman Dick Swett of Bow, NH after discussing the economy, health care and more at Nashua North High School; Tuesday, February 2, 2010.

Don't pencil in a victory for President Obama in New Hampshire's Democratic primary just yet. Today, the incumbent president must withstand a legal challenge that again questions his eligibility to seek the country's highest office.
At 2 p.m. in Room 307 of the legislative office building, the state's Ballot Law Commission is set to hear a complaint filed by Orly Taitz, a California lawyer who has continued to question the validity of Obama's birth certificate and Social Security number since his 2008 election.
Backing her complaint, Taitz said, are four Republican members of the New Hampshire House: Harry Accornero of Laconia, Larry Rappaport of Colebrook, and Lucien and Carol Vita of Middleton.
"There's sufficient controversy that I want it investigated," Rappaport, a Ron Paul supporter, said yesterday. "Every time this is brought up . . . we get a lot of flak, but we've never gotten an answer."
Obama released his birth certificate in response to media inquiries in 2008, but the document did little to quiet skepticism from the so-called "birther" movement. In April, in response to continued interest in the president's nationality - fueled by statements by real estate mogul Donald Trump as he toyed with a presidential run - Obama also released a copy of his long-form birth certificate.
"I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but even I could take that apart and see that it was fraudulent," Rappaport said of the long-form certificate.
Lucien Vita said the birth certificate issue "should have been put to bed years ago" and also believes the documents released by Obama were forged.
"Don't believe anything you read and only half of what you see," he said.
Vita considers himself a constitutionalist and both he and his wife support Ron Paul, he said.
"I have doubts because of the delay in the time it actually took to come out with a long-form birth certificate," Vita said. "I don't want to go through another four years of the same tripe."
Vita said he's confident the Republican candidates are American citizens "because these people have all held other state offices" - though he acknowledged that could also apply to Obama, who was a U.S. senator before being elected president.
"We know where they were born," Vita said of the Republicans. "There's a level of credibility with Obama that has not sufficiently been met in my eyes. If he's a citizen, he should be able to prove it."
Taitz's complaint also questions the validity of Obama's Social Security number, and she said the exhibits presented to the Ballot Law Commission show "undeniable, irrefutable evidence that Barack Obama is using a Social Security number that was never assigned to him."
"I'm hoping that the board will decide not to allow him on the ballot," Taitz said. "And if he wants to be on the ballot, he will have to provide an explanation."
Taitz was born in the Soviet Union. Though she cannot run for president, she is running as a Republican for a seat in the California Senate.
"I know what it is to live in a dictatorship . . . where the whole system is corrupt," Taitz said. "And that's what we're seeing here."
“Obama released his birth certificate in response to media inquiries in 2008, but the document did little to quiet skepticism from the so-called “birther” movement.”
Wrong. Obama released a forgery of his birth certificate.
That’s this article!
Drudge headline cuts to the bottom line. The title by the author is a little demeaning using the Birther name. Glad Drudge changed it.
Ah yes...the fake certificate...but he is a Progressive Democrat and can't or won't produce anything he wrote for the law review he was president of....by popular vote, not grades.
The Tea Party and Conservatives are so refreshing in their support and belief in our Constitution, so different from the Communist led Protesters...come on O'Reilly, Goldberg, Bret Hume, Kruthammer and other Moderate Conservatives...tell the truth about the Protesters/Agitators/Anti-Americans and Obama...he is a Socialist/Marxist - let Juan Williams or Kirsten Powers do the heavy lifting of apologizing for protesters and Obama...she is really awful.
Rest assured a Republican presidential candidate would have been thoroughly vetted if there was even the slightest hint of something amiss with his/her background. Obama's lack of credentials to even serve as POTUS, much less his murky background were given a complete pass by the liberal MSM.
I don’t know if he’s changed it — I went to Drudge when you mentioned it was hard to get to. When it opened, I decided to post it here and make it easier to read.
Anything to make Obama’s life as miserable as he’s made ours is a good thing.
"I released that." "Oh, I didn't release it? I'll have my people release it." "Yes, I released that." "This is getting ridiculous, clearly, I've released that".
The Dumb Assed Senate even passed a special resolution assuring us that McCain was eligible though only an idiot would have questioned THAT. But it totally ignored the Fraud. Of course, the resolution was stupid and had no legal standing but there you go.
And, after just a couple of hours last week, Drudge pulled the link to the audio analysis indicating that Sharon Bialek was lying and Mr. Cain was telling the truth.
It’s not like Drudge has so many stories coming in so fast that the old ones get pushed out of the queue in a matter of hours. Heck, I’ve seen some links stay up there for days on end.
Very telling indeed.
“This is why people have to show up prepared.
Here’s the law from the state of New Hampshire:
655:17-b Declaration of Intent; Presidential Candidates Who File Nomination Papers. I. Declarations of intent for each candidate for president who seeks nomination by nomination papers shall be in the form provided in paragraph II. Declarations of intent required by this section shall be filed with the secretary of state, signed by the candidate, and notarized by a notary public. II. I, _________, swear under penalties of perjury that I am qualified to be a candidate for president of the United States pursuant to article II, section 1, clause 4 of the United States Constitution, which states, 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. I further declare that I am domiciled in the city (or town or unincorporated place) of _____, county of ____, state of ____, and am a qualified voter therein; that I intend to be a candidate for the office of president to be chosen at the general election to be held on the ____ day of ____; and I intend to file nomination papers by the deadline established under RSA 655:43. I further declare that, if qualified as a candidate for said office, I shall not withdraw; and that, if elected, I shall be qualified for and shall assume the duties of said office.
Notice that the law requires Constitutional elgibility. The lawyer skipped over this requirement. The commission is supposed to uphold the law. Notice it says there is penalty of perjury in the declaration. Under the SCOTUS definition of NBC, Obama has committed perjury, although it’s not clear what legal body in NH determines that perjury has been committed. Someone should have smacked the election commission upside their collective heads with this law that their counsel incompetently omitted:”
here’s a link to the law:
here’s a utube of the meeting:
GregNH...you are a patriot!
Here’s the contact page of the reporter who wrote the story in the Concord Monitor
Send him a copy of the law above, maybe???
cross reference to the other thread
stay tuned - maybe Greg has more video!
Thank you! If I hear this right the chairman says that the committee is "not the enforcers of the constitution?" Please help me with that audio, it is not clear to me. If in fact that is what Mr Cook says then he is in violation of his oath, as if we didn't know that already.
Canada Free Press:
Every member of the Supreme Court, every member of congress, every member of the Joint Chiefs, most members of the DOD, CIA, FBI, Secret Service and state run media, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, NPR, MSNBC, Fox and print news, knows that Barack Hussein Obama does NOT meet Article II Section I constitutional requirements for the office he holds. By his own biography, there is NO way he can pass the test. The hard evidence is so far beyond overwhelming, it is ridiculous.
But not ONE member of Americas most powerful people will dare confront Obama and his anti-American cabal on the subject. The Constitution does NOT stand.
Half of the people you expect to stop this insanity are quiet co-conspirators in the silent coup. The other half is paralyzed by fear, motivated only by political self-preservation.
Americans keep asking what they can do because they see that none of their leaders are doing anything to stop the demise of their beloved country. Its the right question, because those leaders are NOT going to stop this thing.
WHO WILL SAVE FREEDOM?
A brave few This is how it was in the beginning, how it has always been and how it will be.
DR. ORLY TAITZ, Phil Berg and Gary Kreep, ALL OF WHOM HAVE MADE DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTION AND THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE A PERSONAL AMBITION, IN THE ABSENCE OF ANY CONSTITUTION LEADERSHIP.
A PRECIOUS FEW, BUT THEY EXIST and the walls are indeed closing in on Obama and his evil cabal. IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FAIL TO GET BEHIND THESE BRAVE FEW WHO ARE SEEKING PEACEFUL REDRESS, ALL THE PEACEFUL OPTIONS WILL EVAPORATE AS IF THEY NEVER EXISTED. WE WILL RETURN TO A PRE-1776 AMERICA OVERNIGHT..
The end of a long barrel in one’s face or a huge wad of money most probably entered into the equation.
The following provision in the referenced NH statute may provide Orly with a second and better opportunity:
655:44 Objections. Nomination papers made in accordance with the provisions of this chapter shall be regarded as valid and shall be received by the secretary of state unless objection thereto is made in writing no later than the Monday following the last day for the filing of such papers.
If she has not done so already, it appears Orly can yet submit, prior to the close of business on Monday, a fully supported written brief that makes the argument O is not qualified.
The argument would include
a) documentation that O was born of a foreign citizen parent;
b) that all birth documents O has made public to date have been determined by experts to be fabricated;
c) even with a future presentation of authentic birth documents, O can claim only that he is an ordinary citizen; and finally,
d) that O cannot satisfy the requirements the NH legislation has mandated for its elections.
One would hope she came prepared to do exactly that; if not, there are other states down the road.
