Obama Ballot Challenge .com Taking On Obama’s 2012 Candidacy; Pamela Barnett Interviewed

The Post & Email

Founder of ObamaBallotChallenge.com Speaks with The Post & Email


by Sharon Rondeau


ObamaBallotChallenge.com was established to assist citizens in every state to file challenges to Barack Hussein Obama’s placement on presidential ballots for 2012 based on the assertion that he is not a “natural born Citizen”

(Dec. 13, 2011) — Capt. Pamela Barnett (Ret.) has founded a website and initiative which seeks to assist citizens wishing to challenge Obama’s constitutional eligibility and name placement on the presidential ballot for 2012.  She and her team are currently compiling election law from all 50 states and will be providing forms and sample letters which registered voters can use to file a complaint.

Barnett has recently appeared on The Roth Radio Show and the Andrea Shea King Radio Show to detail her plan to challenge Obama’s eligibility based on the claim that he is not a “natural born Citizen” as required by Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.  Barnett also operates the website Unlawful President and will be releasing a book entitled Never Vetted, the first chapter of which was published on the internet at no charge for informational and educational purposes.

In May of last year, Barnett filed a lawsuit against California Secretary of State Debra Bowen challenging the eligibility of Damon Dunn, a Republican candidate running for Bowen’s position.  Barnett explained that she had researched California election law in regard to challenging candidate qualifications.  “I found out that there was law for challenging the ballot, and part of the Barnett v. Dunn case goes to the criminal negligence of the California Secretary of State and the Attorney General,” she said.

The Post & Email asked Barnett who initiated the idea of a ballot challenge campaign, and she responded, “I did.  The Dunn case has been with me since 2010, and I kept it in the back of my mind that if nothing else works, we should challenge the ballot in regard to Obama.  In trying to come up with a solution, I thought about it hard.  After seeing the total failure of our government, I decided to find all the election laws, make a website, lead a national movement, and overwhelm the Democrats in all 50 states.”

The Obama Ballot Challenge website has been operational for about three weeks. Barnett is director, and Gary Wilmott and George Miller are filling key positions.  Barnett is seeking people who can market the website by placing links on other sites about Obama Ballot Challenge.  “The goal is to get as many complaints in as many states as possible to inform more people about the fraud crimes going on.  We also want more people to know the meaning of “natural born Citizen.”

We asked Barnett how long it took her to research election law in every state, and she replied, “It’s still ongoing.  I still need research help.  Most states have their election law on the internet, and we’ve done 26 states to date.  Looking through election law is not an exciting thing to do, and I’ve already had a few people say they just can’t do it (laughs).  It’s not hard; you just have to find the law and start looking for key words such as “contest” and “challenge.”  Most secretaries of state that we found have only a ministerial duty, but some of them have more than that but did not follow their states’ laws after receiving complaints.  The difference now is that a lot of the deadlines were missed, so many of the complaints that were filed became civil fraud cases.  There, you have to prove that you have standing, and some of them sued the secretaries of state, who then wiggled out of it, saying they didn’t have a ministerial duty to check on eligibility. With ballot challenges, you have instant standing.”

The Post & Email asked, “Is it true that all states have a specific ballot challenge period and that the challenge can be made by an average person?” and Barnett responded, “Yes.  You have to be a registered voter.  Two states which are standing out as undemocratic are Wisconsin and Virginia.  Wisconsin says that it’s the Congress’s job to vet candidates, and if you have any questions you should call the FEC.  They’re usurping power from the law.  That’s the state where we’ll probably need an attorney.  In other states it must simply be a registered voter.  You can file the challenge, it’s free, and often you can submit it electronically via email or fax.”

Barnett found that some states allow a ballot challenge up to 30 days after an election if new information comes to light about a candidate’s eligibility, even allowing for voiding of an election.  “The Obama State Ballot Challenge 2012 is there to assist people in finding the law and steering them in the right direction.  We’re probably going to come up with a generic ballot complaint which addresses the “natural born Citizen” issue, which would be appealable up to the Supreme Court.”

Barnett stated that while she was developing the Obama Ballot Challenge project, the Article II SuperPac started up.  The Post & Email asked her, “What is the relationship between the two new groups?  Is there a nexus?” and she responded, “We are strategic partners, and we’re putting out a press release on that.”

The Post & Email has interviewed the director of the Article II SuperPac organization and will be publishing a report within the next few days.

Of the purpose of each organization, Barnett explained, “We’re more of the action arm; they’re a long-term educational initiative which will be creating a defense fund for people who are challenging the ballot in their states who need an attorney.  Whatever comes up as an immediate concern will hopefully be able to be covered with the funds raised.  We’re also looking at challenging Republican candidates such as Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal if they are placed on the ballot because they are not natural born Citizens.”

Barnett explained that Obama is not the first occupant of the White House to have his eligibility challenged.  Of Chester Arthur, who served as president following the death of President James Garfield after having been shot by an assassin, Barnett said, “He wasn’t even an American citizen, because at the time of his birth, the 14th Amendment had not been passed, and his father was not a U.S. citizen.”  The White House biography does not mention anything about Arthur’s personal background except that he was “born in Vermont.”  She stated that Arthur’s father did not naturalize until his son was 14 years old, which made the son a U.S. citizen but not a “natural born Citizen.”

We asked Barnett if she knew how many complaints are in the process of being filed, and she responded, “There are people from at least ten states working on ballot challenges now.  We’re there to make sure they have prepared a proper complaint according to the law in their states.”

Barnett believes that people “cannot just stand on the sidelines” when it comes to the 2012 election.  “If we can keep Obama off the ballot in one state, hopefully others can follow.  I was originally planning on waiting until the general election, but we know how long it can take going through the court process.  A lot of these challenges will not be resolved at the administrative level and lawsuits will be filed which can go all the way to the Supreme Court.  Standing will not be an issue, an injury will exist, and the court will have jurisdiction.  We’re overcoming all of the obstacles that were there before.”

Summarizing the scope and purpose of ObamaBallotChallenge.com, Barnett said:

We cannot wait for Congress, the federal judiciary, or the Department of Justice to enforce the law regarding Obama’s eligibility. They have failed us.  The Obama State Ballot Challenge puts the power back into the hands of the people.  It gives any voter a course of action to take to ensure that the Constitutionally ineligible Obama is not re-elected.

Filing a ballot complaint to keep Obama off the ballot in their state is free, easy, and doesn’t require an attorney.  This process gives instant “standing” to the complainant to have their ballot complaint heard on the merits. The complaint absolutely needs to be filed within the legal time frame for their state.  The Obama State Ballot Challenge staff will offer assistance with complaints to those who request it. If in the future the administrative complaint is rejected, we hope that our strategic partner, the ART2 SuperPAC, will have a legal fund to assist those who need it. It is the goal of Obama State Ballot Challenge to inspire citizens to file complaints in every state so that the American citizens might finally receive justice against the Un-Constitutional, usurper Barack Obama…  and to ensure that he will not be re-elected by finally having the mandate of the Supreme Court in Minor v. Happersett enforced within the several states.

Barnett also said that hearings concerning ballot challenges normally take place within 30 days after the complaint is filed.

  1. The Loss of Liberty in America is staggering . Sheriff Joe needs to be suspicious

    Obama is Hiding behind this Executive Order that Bush put in place in 2001 , and Obama just keeps extending to give himself cover from the US Constitution and the eligibility Clause, and while he is Buying time with this suspension of the US Constitution, http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/09/09/message-president-regarding-continuation-national-emergency-respect-cert , he is Stalling for time to Collapse the economic Capital System by Overwhelming it with DEBT DEPENDENCE, ( read the Snopes and Obama Agenda ; ” Overwhelm the System ” , below ), on the State and federal Government with Growth restrictive Regulatory Encroachments , check it out , The Loss of Liberty in America is staggering .
    I would Argue with the Republican establishment about their Worry that NEWT wanting to bring a greater Balance to the Judiciary. This Executive Power is not to be used for more than 2 years yet the Power has been enacted and rolled over for 10 years plus now and this kind of Power abuse is perpetuating on its self and The executive Branch as well as Congress would only stand to Benefit from a destabilizing effect on economic and tactical systems of societies and so we could ask is all that could be done to Bring back Stabilized growth to the Economy of the Free market system when President Obama comes out and says that the Free markets system is a failed system always was and always will be ???? Thats pretty destabilizing in itself is it not ???

    Plus they are doing all kinds of things to destabilize or bring the threat of destabilization to our economy and we need to ask why ? Like this , http://www.cnsnews.com/node/75388 , and when you read this you can make the case that this was the plan all along , Obama’s agenda: Over whelm the system , http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/overwhelm.asp , this story talks about how illegal Immigration if allowed to continue can help collapse and destabilize the USA economic system thats a Threat that can keep in place the National Emergency Act that President Obama and Congress is Hiding behind so they do not have to follow the US Constitution while the system continues to collapse due to a lack of following the rules that up hold the Liberty and Integrity of this USA , http://www.lvrj.com/opinion/obama-s-agenda–overwhelm-the-system-95716764.html

    WHERE is the OUTRAGE ?

    And enabling Operations in the Middle east like the Muslim brotherhood thats a Well known hater of the Western nations like the USA and Europe to topple the nations and destabilize the region even more than when the War on terror broke out in 2001 , this seems like more ways to keep in place reasons why the Executive Privilege of National emergency act is continuing and allowing even more lose of Liberty to evolve like with the latest enacting of the National Detention Authorization Act , an even more destabilizing effect on the nations ability to build trust between Government and the private sector economy . I mean these things are over reaches that NEWT wanted to debate about ways to Slow down and reverse the Loss of Liberty and so the Republican establishment and anyone who denounced your thinking really needs to Take a Long hard look at what is Going on NOW !!!

  2. I would Ask them why they are so dang worried about what you wanted to debate when it looks like they did nothing about what President Bush did to GUT the rights of US Citizens under what Was the US Constitution that also allowed President Obama to enjoy a inherited executive privilege of Power to avoid accountability in every way of US Constitutional authority ??
    And he just keeps extending it over and over ,
    Obama Extends Bush’s 9/11 State of Emergency
    I found this article had a Paragraph that asked a question about Why maybe President Obama was able to skate around the eligibility clause , and how the NDAA bill was able to End Posse Comitias law and overrule the right to the 4th and 5th amendments of the US Constitution . This Might be why they are Not Enforcing the Immigration Law ?? Is this how they are implementing sustainable development taking away rights of private property owners ??? No Need for a balance Budget amendment because with this suspension we can just keep extending it and kicking the can down the road until a full destabilization of the trust and integrity of the trust in liberty to uphold a individuals rights has Broken down to the point of civil outrage and disobedience right ?

    http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/symon/081107 , This paragraph is about half way down in the article .
    ” The US Constitution is clear on the matter of Presidential requirements, but what if the US Constitution has quietly been under suspension since September 2001, through the use of “The National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C.1601-1651)” which, incidentally, prohibits any President from declaring and prolonging a State of National Emergency for more than a two year period. Yet this “Emergency” nonetheless has lasted continuously since September 11, 2001. Are COG rules in force? and if so why have House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson and Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Christopher Carney’s request to scrutinize those rules been refused ? ”

    These laws that are being enacted are being done because the US Constitution is suspended otherwise these Laws like this NDAA would not be able to get past under the US Constitution , and Listen to Senator Graham like his Power to Detain …. like a German Shepard …. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ni-nPc6gT4
    And Now we the people Live in Fear if we even Speak out against these oppressive acts against of our Liberty of the right to due process we use to have , even if we are missing fingers , storing food and ammo ,

    ATTENTION PREPPERS – Having More Than 7 Days Of Food Makes You A Suspected Terrorist


    Are they planning for a Economic Event ???
