WLS Radio has learned that President Barack Obama faces three local challenges to his eligibility for the Illinois primary ballot. At least one involves a group that believes the fight will be worse than the one Mayor Rahm Emanuel faced with his residency challenge.

The best way to get real news is through local media. Good for them on checking the signatures, especially after the Obama fraud in Indiana 2008.

Obama is surrounded and endorsed by Communist; the Communist Party USA, the Van Jones Cabal; CAIR, ACORN, SEIU, to name a few then there is Valerie Jarrett, a communist who has Obama’s ear in all things...and like Obama’s Czars, she is unelected.

You would think the MSM would want to research Obama’s ties to the Communist Party USA or CAIR, or perhaps ACORN and the Black Panthers or the Black Radical Congress and a host of other anti-American organization and people close to him...Valery Jarrett comes to mind. The Chicago fix is a given; Chicago politics are always fixed.

"Cleveland’s group, the Chicago Objectors, filed the challenge with the Illinois State Board of Elections late this afternoon, just before the filing deadline.

The group claims the Obama campaign filed roughly 4,500 petitions, many of which were for unregistered voters, were duplicates, had incorrect addresses, or didn’t have a signature, and as a result, the Obama campaign may not have submitted the required 3,000 valid signatures. Cleveland blames the so-called “Chicago Machine” for putting into place rules that make it difficult for anyone to challenge the incumbent. “You know, Barack Obama has fallen short of those rules.”

The strategic value of filing the object just before the deadline is priceless. There is no time for the Party Machine to get active and make sure that the required number of signatures meets the requirements.

Of course, now there is reality. Being Illinois, it means that some hack party judge will make some sort of ruling that the people deserve a democrat candidate, and since there is no time to get another democrat candidate qualified, they will have to settle with the candidate who filed. There are probably more ways the crooked political Illinois machine can get around this. A hack judge might just as well make public what we all know: Laws and rules don't apply to Democrats.

Well, that's kind of like expecting Pravda of the old days to investigate its ties to the Communist Party.

Here's the real disqualifier, if someone had the guts and the funds to pursue it:


Is the Illinois Democratic Party an illegal party? Are its candidates disqualified?

americaspartynews.com

From the Illinois Code:

ARTICLE 7. THE MAKING OF NOMINATIONS BY POLITICAL PARTIES
10 ILCS 5/7-2) (from Ch. 46, par. 7-2)
Sec. 7-2.

[...]

A political party, which at the municipal election in any other municipality or political subdivision, (except townships and school districts), for municipal or other officers therein then next preceding a primary, cast more than 5 per cent of the entire vote cast in such municipality or political subdivision, is hereby declared to be a political party within the meaning of this Article, within said municipality or political subdivision, and shall nominate all municipal or other officers therein under the provisions hereof to the extent and in the cases provided in section 7--1.

Provided, that no political organization or group shall be qualified as a political party hereunder, or given a place on a ballot, which organization or group is associated, directly or indirectly, with Communist, Fascist, Nazi or other un-American principles and engages in activities or propaganda designed to teach subservience to the political principles and ideals of foreign nations or the overthrow by violence of the established constitutional form of government of the United States and the State of Illinois.
(Source: Laws 1943, vol. 2, p. 1.)


Every candidate for public office in Illinois must sign this:

(10 ILCS 5/7-10.1) (from Ch. 46, par. 7-10.1)
    Sec. 7-10.1. Each petition or certificate of nomination shall include as a part thereof, a statement for each of the candidates filing, or in whose behalf the petition or certificate of nomination is filed, said statement shall be subscribed and sworn to by such candidate or nominee before some officer authorized to take acknowledgment of deeds in this State and shall be in substantially the following form:
United States of America
                         ss
State of Illinois        
    I, .... do swear that I am a citizen of the United States and the State of Illinois, that I am not affiliated directly or indirectly with any communist organization or any communist front organization, or any foreign political agency, party, organization or government which advocates the overthrow of constitutional government by force or other means not permitted under the Constitution of the United States or the constitution of this State; that I do not directly or indirectly teach or advocate the overthrow of the government of the United States or of this State or any unlawful change in the form of the governments thereof by force or any unlawful means.

.......................
    Subscribed and sworn to by me on (insert date).
.......................
(Notary Public)
     My commission expires: .....
(Source: P.A. 91-357, eff. 7-29-99.)


Knowing what we do about Obama's extensive Communist connections, sure looks to me like he is an illegal candidate.

Notice it says you are swearing to be a ‘citizen’ instead of ‘natural born citizen’?

No wonder they hid the New Party’s publications in layers of the web in 2008 shortly before the election - publications that said Obama was a signed member of The New Party, which was established by communists to infiltrate the democratic party.

His association with Bill Ayers should have disqualified him in 2008.

You don’t need to be a natural born citizen to hold public office other than the Presidency. We had Schwartzenstupid for Governor.

Very interesting. I hope an attorney or the various attorney groups, (Apuzzo, Donofrio, Liberty Legal Foundation, etc), that are litigating eligibility on various levels will pursue this. Are we a nation of laws or not? I know it's Chicago, but there it is, right in the Code.

Btw, I remember researching Obama before the 08 election and discovering he was a member of the New Party . . I sat in stunned silence for about a minute and thought, "How did he even get the nomination?" Then it hit me. . .

Ha Ha! They waited till the Dem hack Judge in Virginia rules that the Pubs couldn’t get on the ballot there cos their law suit wasn’t constitutional and timely.

Go Petard.

I caught part of a report on this just now. Something about even if this is proven, Obama’s delegates will still be on the ballot? Is this true?
