Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a bill Monday that would have required presidential candidates to provide their birth certificates to appear on the ballot, and another that would have allowed guns to be carried on school grounds.

Isn’t the SoS’s office, in each state, always the gatekeeper to ballot access?
Flippin’ RINOs. They’re going to be the death of the republic yet.
But, I have to say, even though I support these bills for the purposes of clearing up any possible misunderstanding, I have to ask the question: Why do we need a bill in order to get our elected officials to simply follow the imperative requirements of our Constitution?
And a second question would be: Why should we think that if they won’t keep their oath to follow the imperative requirements of our Constitution that they would follow any lesser law anyhow?
Practically our entire political and legal class have become lawless.
Remember Jan Brewer WAS the Arizona Secretary of State for the 2008 Presidential election. SHE validated the usurper on Arizona’s ballot. She is implicated in the cover up. Also, the “birther” bill passed both the Arizona House(40 votes) and Senate(20 votes). These numbers constitute a super-majority. JAN CAN BE OVERRIDDEN!!
Curiouser and curiouser.
She says in her veto the bill puts it all in the hands of the one individual, the SOS. IOW I believe she is saying it gives too much power to the SOS who could address the issue with political intent if the SOS is so inclined.
We have to remember it’s not just this case of Obama that would be effected. A Soros Secretary of State project SOS could use the bill for political advantage.
She would approve the bill I think if they rewrite the language so the SOS is not the soul decision maker on the matter.
Thanks for that post.
Not sure I agree with her on the gun issue though.
Her two options were sign or veto. She doesn't write the law she signs it, or not. I happen to agree with her reasoning on the BC law.
From what I read a week ago it was watered down to the point of being able to produce an electric bill to be OK’d.
Wasn’t there some kind of plot underway to co-opt all 50 Secretaries of States, since they have control over elections?
Maybe it would work if the proof of “natural born citizenship” had to be approved by the state supreme court instead ... ?
The Soros thing is a red herring.
As another poster pointed out, the SoS already has the duty to have their elections meet Constitutional requirements.
So we should have no Secretary of States and we should have no enforced Constitutional standards because Soros might a lefty elected as SoS?
Come on now.
Guns can be carried on school grounds now. Maybe someone is trying to let legal guns on campus. What a radical idea.
“Remember Jan Brewer WAS the Arizona Secretary of State for the 2008 Presidential election. SHE validated the usurper on Arizonas ballot. She is implicated in the cover up.”
DING...DING...DING...WE HAVE A WINNER.
Good for her as to the former. I was a little concerned about her veto of the gun bill; although her signing statement does put forward a plausible rationale. I’ll reserve judgement for a while yet; since she indicated that she would support a similar bill with clearer wording we’ll see what she does when and if the legislature satisfies her requirements.
Sounds like threats to her family to me..the federal gangsta may as well be telling us it does not give a crap about us, they will take our country, our assets and do what they want..
Why didn’t she just leave it alone... all we needed was one state to make this a requirement and when Barry doesn’t comply it makes it obvious he is a fraud.....
Hey Jan you know all those trees your looking at, guess what its actually a forest you idiot... You could have approved the bill and then after 2012 election you could have recinded it.....
The reason she gave was to keep a SOS from being able to make a politically-motivated decision to keep somebody off the Presidential ballot. The trouble is, her veto ensures that the decision WILL be made by a SOS and NOT by a judge who is authorized to interpret the Constitution and who has access to the critical records.
IOW, her action makes no sense with what she said.
Very, very disappointing.
Somebody got to her. That leaves Jindal (LA). IF the LA legislature passes their bill and he doesn’t sign it, we know all bets are off and the nation will be gone in 4-10 years.
