Audio: Federal Election Commission Ruled Unanimously 
Foreign-Born Person Can File and Raise Funds To Be President

Note: The FEC hearing archived above is a must hear. The report from Roll Call below is missing many details about what was said during the hearing and the concerns about Abdul Hassan raising funds under false pretenses. This is complete insanity!

FEC Allows Presidential 
Campaign for Foreign-Born Man
Roll Call

The Federal Election Commission ruled Friday that a Guyana-born American citizen could file papers and raise money to run for president of the United States. But the agency also told the prospective candidate, Abdul Hassan, that his campaign may not receive federal matching funds because he was not born in America.

The FEC’s unanimous vote allows Hassan — who born in the South American country in 1974 — to be a candidate, solicit funds and requires him to file disclosure reports for a presidential bid. However, the agency’s decision stopped short of addressing the constitutional issue of whether someone born outside the United States can be president.

Instead, the agency told Hassan he may not receive any presidential primary matching funds by quoting the Constitution, stating “[n]o 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.”

Hassan’s request appeared to put the FEC in the rare role of deciding a large constitutional issue that has only a few intersections with campaign finance law. The two commonly held constitutional requirements to run for president are that the candidate be 35 years of age or older and be a “natural born citizen.”

But FEC commissioners said repeatedly that their decision to define Hassan as a candidate had nothing to do with his birth country. They said that current federal election law allows for someone to be a candidate, regardless of whether they can legally hold the office they seek and that the FEC is not charged with deciding presidential criteria including one’s natural-born citizenship.

  1. I would think this ruling by the FEC would be appealable in federal court, where a REAL interpretation of the Constitution could be obtained.

  3. January 20, 2009. This is the date that our flag went to the dump.

    We saw this coming and there is no reason to praise a country that is run by a bunch of criminals.

    And to think I put my life on the line for this piece of crap country when I enlisted and served in Vietnam.

  4. Believe it or not, Mario Apuzzo would probably support this. According to Apuzzo, persons have the right to run for POTUS even if ineligible under the Freedom of Speech. That is why Phil Berg's suit against Obama failed.

  5. The system is messed up. There is no controlling authority to vet the eligibility of candidate. Once an ineligible candidate like Obama wins, Congress has final say through the joint session. if they say nothing, the ineligible candidate is sworn as the POTUS. The courts will not intervene into a political question and ordinary citizens have no standing because everyone has been harmed by an ineligible candidate. The electoral College won't do anything because they are bound to vote for a candidate regardless on whether he eligible or not if he or she has won the election. it's all messed up.

  6. There was a reason to not allow foreign people not to be President. It was to keep power of the United States from being taken over with foreign interests on mind rather than the country at heart.

    The United States is done, people in power have chosen to override the safety net of the constitution. And sadly, no one understands or even cares.

  8. This does not mean that he can go and say ‘look the FEC has said that I am a candidate, give me money, I’m official,’” said Republican Commissioner Donald McGahn. “That is not what we do here; we don’t certify you as a candidate. That’s what the states do.”

    http://www.rollcall.com/news/fec_allows_presidential_campaign_for_foreign_born_man-208435-1.html?pos=hln

    "That’s what the states do.”

    A person for President...

    "...shall be eligible to the Office of President..." (-U.S. Constitution)

    Meaning eligible BEFORE the person takes Office of President such as an election to elect the state appointed Electors...

    Call your state legislators and demand presidential eligibility laws requiring the person for President shall be eligible to the Office of President according to the U.S. Constitution.

  9. Federal Election Commission Unanimously Ruled.

    Unanimously Ruled - Meaning even if you protest it will fall onto deaf ears. No one in power is objecting. The court system throws it all out and will not listen. NO ONE will listen or take it seriously enough to look beyond the "official" press releases.

    The circle is complete, the entire system is corrupt to the core, including the media. Good luck with your phone calls.

  13. I want to thank you all at Thebirtherreport for bringing this to my attention. I actually replied and sent the two faxes as they requested during the pubic comment period. I think if more people other than the other 8 people + me equals 9 had written there may well have been a different outcome.

    This ruling was unnecessary, if you do not qualify to run as prez you can't raise money either. I know the FEC does not want to be the candidate decider but they are wasting time and possibly public funds by proffering this ruling. You don't have to be a citizen to run for prez, even if you can't get public funds sets a bad tone and is exactly what I expected because government is detached from common sense and reality.

  17. For those that say there is not vetting. Why then was Eldridge Cleaver (pretty sure it was him, if not one other) not allowed on the ballet because he was a few months too young.

    The Secretaries of State could have kept Obama-Soetoro off the ballet. Why didn't they? Because our country is being run by a bunch of criminals known as the Republican and Democrat Party. The sooner the American people realize this the sooner we will be able to do what needs to be done to take back our country.

  19. So they will invoke the contitution that would not allow the candidate to take the oath of office but only AFTER the election and yet all court decisions continue to invoke standing that they will not interfer in a political mattter. This is retards at work.

    The FEC ONLY has jurisdcition over campaign finance laws. Their opinion is advisory ONLY.
    A person who is not a natural born citizen can RUN for President, the Constitution is moot on requirements to run. Each state plus the District of Columbia control the requirements to run.
    However only a natural born citizen can assume the actual office of the presidency.

    A man named Roger Calero (born in Nicaragua) was on the 2008 presidential ballot in several states as the Socialist Workers Party candidate. He was allowed on the ballot in five states and there was a substitute candidate for that party in five other states. They garnered several thousand votes. The rubber would have hit the road ONLY if a person who was ruled by a court or determined by Congress to not qualify as natural born received a majority of the Electoral College votes.

    They may have seen Barry's fake COLB from Hawaii and had no idea his father was never an America citizen.....or, if they did know his father was never an America citizen, they may never have known what being a "natural born Citizen" is...or, most likely, they just would rather the job of vetting candidates be left to someone else.....meaning, again, it won't get done. They made an exception with age because it is very straightforward.

  24. @John Doe Sr.
    The problem with that theory is that Obama wrote a book about his father not being an American citizen and he wrote that book in 1995, 12 years before he announced that he was running for president. By the time he announced his candidacy, that book (Dreams From My Father) was a number one NY Times bestseller and anyone who was paying attention knew that his father was a Kenyan.
    There's a picture of his Kenyan grandmother holding his Kenyan father as an infant on the cover, for goodness sake!

  25. I didn't know he had a non-citizen father until long after the election. The media were too busy vetting and going after Palin. They did zero vetting of Obama.

    His book Dreams from my Father sold 4,650,000 copies. How many people are registered to vote? You expect every American to read his book?

  27. In O.whodat's case NO ONE was charged with "deciding presidential criteria including one's natural-born citizenship." What's interesting is the F.ools E.lectronically C.ommunicating distinguished natural-born citizenship from being a citizen of this country. Since one of O.commie's commie buds is head of the FEC, I guess he had to make sure to clear the way for O.whodat to continue being allowed to raise funds for his 2nd con-paign despite birth country, dual citizenship,non-NBC status and forged documentation. I wonder if Hassan is here illegally also and if the Muslim Ft. Hood shooter is a long lost uncle,like O.whodat's great Uncle Omar??

    If voters had checked out something besides the main stream media, including Fox, for their information, they would have known Barry's father was never an American citizen, without reading Bill Ayers Obama book.

    The reason they forged the short-form COLB for Barry first was because it makes no mention of where the father was born, (OK, and it was a bit easier), the forged long-form BC has the birthplace of Obama's father listed as Mombasa, Africa. Obama's protectors did not want to deal with any more people than necessary knowing his father was not born in the USA, and never an American citizen. Once this fact became more widely known, they were already into their full-court Alinsky press to try to convince people that the Constitutional requirement of being a natural born Citizen just meant being born in the USA, as in "anchor baby=natural born Citizen". Alinsky worked on lots of people, and got us to where we are today.

    Many of Barry''s protectors are still at it because they are protecting their own sorry butts, even many Obots are losing faith in Barry, but they have dug themselves into a hole and the truth will not set them free, but it very well could put them in prison.

    However, if a few Obot's wanted to "spill the beans" on the others, they could likely avoid prosecution when the crap finally hits the fan.

  29. The States didn't do anything to keep O off the ballots because they didn't want to offend 'black' people. Evidently black people's delicate, easily hurt feelings were more important than the Constitution in 2008.

    I made this suggestion a week or so ago in another thread here. There were no comments.

    Here it is again:

    If what is being said in this thread is correct, we need to have a dedicated website available and widely known to the public where they can go and find accurate and easy to understand information concerning their states candidate vetting requirements. It’s absurd to be told “the voters” vet the candidates when probably 95% of them believe the Election Commission, the Political Parties, the FBI, the CIA or SOMEBODY is making sure candidates on the ballot in their state are qualified to be there. The laws regarding this on a state by state basis are not well known and few voters even know if the states really do ANYTHING to vet a candidate, no matter what the law says they should do.

    We need to have an organized, central point to go to and get the required information to accurately contest every candidate on the ballot in every state, making those whose job this is supposed to be actually do their job. The website could be called something like www.vetyourcandidates.com or something like that and explain the process, list the dates the process must be done, provide sample paperwork, names of state officials and phone numbers, addresses, etc.

    It’s absurd that this is the way the system is for something as important as who can be president and commander-in-chief of the military, especially because the requirements are spelled out for federal offices in the Constitution. The election of 2008 and Obama proved those in power know the current laws and how to circumvent them, with the result being the takeover over of America by enemies, “both foreign and domestic”.

    Contact your Congressional representatives, both state and federal, and tell them to provide the information necessary to contest the qualifications of any candidate who is going to be on your state ballot, then follow through and do just that. The states got off in 2008 without doing any meaningful vetting……….and some have even admitted it. This “oversight” has literally cost us our nation. Until we can change the ridiculous way of having to do this, we can work with it to stop Barry from running again, and/or to prevent another ineligible candidate for president or vice-president, including those whose polices we may like such as Rubio or Bobby Jindal, neither of whom is a natural born Citizen, from being on the ballot.

    At the very least we need to let the states know we are watching their every move.

    We must act soon, any thoughts on this???

  33. Thanks very much for posting the link to my FEC article. Sometimes I think our self-assurance in the matter detracts from the petition for redress. This country has a long history vacillating between common law and the law of man foundation of our republic. We are simply insisting that the courts and congress provided input as to which. No answer is unacceptable in our collective estimation. I'm active military and find incredibly disturbing that other citizens similarly oath bound to "support and defend" and "bear true allegiance" consider themselves without responsibility or accountability. One would think fellow Americans would hold the concern in greater esteem than it has been in years past. Sad and disgraceful, to say the least. Thanks, again, for the link post.

  35. To the poster that said Obama wasn't vetted because they didn't want to offend blacks. I say California had no problem vetting Eldridge Cleaver and not allowing him on the ballet.

    The difference is that Obama was selected by the heads of the Democrat Party and the SOS's were told not to question.

    Get deeply involved in politics and you will know exactly what I am saying. Both parties are power hungry corrupt egotistical criminals

    The American voter needs to get away from the lesser of two criminals mentality. Both parties should be abolished and all the funds the have confiscated and used to pay off the debt that they stuck us with.

  36. The *March on Washington* is in the works. Unforuanatly it is not our side.
    www.USDayofRage.org. Follow links to *Take The Square* and a few others. They are pretty well funded (by guess who). Billy, Code Pink and MANY other bo supporting groups. I have a bad feeling that Sept. 15th is the beginning of the riots. They will practice *civil disobedience*, there are links to how to be arrested and act in jail. It is a very spooky site and the links blew me away. Thay are planning on sleeping in tents in shifts at Wall Street and Freedom Sq. This is connected to other *peaceful* rallies world wide, such as Syria, England, etc. This is not a US Grassroots effort, this is Global. It may well be the beginning of our final * transformation.*
    Hope and pray I am wrong, but I see no other way of reading this, it is big, bad and ugly.

    Weren't you the least bit curious in 2007 when a candidate named "Barack Hussein Obama II" announced that he was running for president to find out a bit for yourself about his background and heritage?

    Obama talked about his father being a Kenyan in every one of his campaign stump speeches when he would discuss why he "was the guy from Hawaii with the Kenyan father and the funny name."

    Syndicated newspapers published an article in 2004 with the headline "Kenyan born Obama set for the US Senate."

    Myself like many other Americans depended on the media for information about the candidates. I'd heard Obama talk about his Kenyan father but didn't think much of it in regards to whether he was a US citizen or not. Obama never said he wasn't nor did the media. I knew his father went to school here and was married to Obama's mother and I didn't think much of it past that. I have since learned my lesson about fully researching candidates backgrounds. Many of the articles saying Kenyan-born Obama were scrubbed and back in 2008 were not readily available and there was no mention of them in the media. I not only blame myself but I lay much of the blame on the media for not doing their job in providing all of the facts.
