Obama ballot battle continues
Judicial Watch, Freedom Watch founder joins Obama Ballot Challenge team to boot Obama from ballot in Florida and California
NAPLES, Fla. – Sam Sewell, the Obama Ballot Challenge Project manager for the state of Florida, announced last week that Attorney Larry Klayman (r), founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, has joined their team to file ballot eligibility challenges against Obama in both Florida and California.
According to Sewell, who has been working to expose Obama as a fraud since before the 2008 election, Obama cannot get reelected if he fails to qualify for the ballot in these two key states.
While at Judicial Watch, Klayman obtained a court ruling declaring President Clinton committed a crime, the first lawyer to ever accomplish that against an American president.
Klayman describes Freedom Watch (FW) as “the only political advocacy group that speaks through actions rather than just words.”
Freedom Watch’s website states, “We are dedicated to not only preserving freedom, but redefining its meaning, from protecting our rights to privacy, free speech, civil liberties, and freedom from foreign oil and crooked business, labor and government officials, to protecting our national sovereignty against the incompetent terrorist state-controlled United Nations, and reestablishing the rule of law in what has become a very corrupt American legal system, where justice is only as good as your lawyer and judge – most of whom are compromised ethically and otherwise.”
On Jan. 30, 2012, as counsel for FW, as amicus curiae in United Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, Klayman has filed a motion for reconsideration to participate in oral arguments concerning the issue of the requested recusal or disqualification of Justice Elena Kagan in deciding Obamacare.
He argued, “This ‘greater’ issue is the integrity of the Supreme Court itself and whether or not it will adhere to and respect centuries old rules of judicial ethics, which require a judge to recuse herself when she has a conflict of interest and when to continue on the case would create even the appearance of partiality.”
Klayman said new evidence arose in a recent report on Fox News that shows, while she was solicitor general of the Obama Justice Department, Kagan advocated in favor of Obamacare in another case.
He said, “This act constitutes not only a conflict of interest, but creates more than the appearance of partiality, for which she must recuse herself or be disqualified by the court.”
With $5,000 on hand but little time to spare, the Article II Legal Defense Fund is seeking donations to proceed with the Florida Ballot Challenge, which may be made securely online at: https://secure.piryx.com/donate/Owri7yAp/Article-II-Legal-Defense-Fund/FL or via check to Article II Legal Defense Fund, PO Box 940672, Simi Valley, CA 93094. Be sure to note on the check the donation is for the Florida Ballot Challenge or to the General Fund so it may be used to fund the most urgent project.
“We must raise $25,000 ($12,500 per state) for efforts in Florida and California,” said Sewell, adding, “Larry understands the threat to our country, rule of law, national finances and of course, an ineligible, hostile ‘President.’ He has very high visibility, key contacts, presence, visibility, reputation, experience, track record,” describing Klayman as a “heavy hitter.”
Sewell said, “Looming deadlines force us to act soon. This may be our last line of defense to help ensure Obama will not be in the White House four more years. Our line in the sand is here. Do you really want to count on Romney/Santorum to beat him, to just hope for a ‘fair’ election?”
Meanwhile, appeals are moving forward in the Georgia challenges while Attorney Mark Hatfield filed a Citation for Contempt on Feb. 1 with the Georgia Office of Administrative Hearings on behalf of Carl Swensson and Kevin Powell, relating to “the contemptuous behavior of the defendant before this court, for a determination of appropriate action, including a finding of contempt.”
Hatfield points out Obama was served through his defense counsel, Michael Jablonski, a notice to produce, requiring Obama to appear at the Jan. 26 hearing in Atlanta and to bring with him certain documents and other items to be used as evidence.
He argued Jablonski filed no response, noting he filed no motion for protective order, motion to quash or any other pleading objecting to the notice to produce.
And, despite being timely served with the notice, Obama failed to appear for the hearing on Jan. 26, as did his attorney.
Hatfield also notes Obama and Jablonski’s failure to appear was “knowing, intentional and deliberate,” as per Jablonski’s letter to Secretary of State Brian Kemp the day before the hearing.
On behalf of his clients, Hatfield requested Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi certify the foregoing facts to the Superior Court of Fulton County, as provided by the rules of the Office of State Administrative Hearings, for a determination of the appropriate action to be taken with regard to defendant’s contemptuous conduct.
