New Hampshire could use a motto makeover

Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. places N.H. officials squarely between a lie and hard spot

CONCORD, N.H. – According to the New Hampshire Department of Justice’s website, the attorney general enforces New Hampshire’s election laws, as well as certain federal voting rights.

The website states: “For Federal complaints, the attorney general's office has a duty to resolve the complaint within ninety days of receipt of the written complaint or to provide the complainant with the opportunity to bring the complaint before the Ballot Law Commission, which must then resolve the complaint within sixty days.”

orly taitzAfter filing an 85-page page complaint, providing proof of fraud with respect to Barack Obama’s forged birth certificate and his use of a Connecticut-issued Social Security number not assigned to him, Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. (r) flew to New Hampshire to appear before the Ballot Law Commission last Friday to request Obama be removed from the New Hampshire Primary Election ballot.

A crowd of about 100 people attended the Nov. 18 hearing, requiring an adjoining area room be opened up to accommodate them.

A video taken by an attendee was immediately made available following the hearing.

Testimony provided before the commission by the assistant secretary of state, as questioned by the assistant attorney general, indicated the process simply requires a candidate to file the requisite paperwork and pay a $1,000 fee.

During questioning, the assistant secretary of state said Vice President Joe Biden filed the paperwork along with a check for $1,000. And, she said, if the paperwork is filled out correctly and the fee is paid, the candidate is placed on the ballot, unless a complaint is filed.

During cross examination, Taitz asked the assistant secretary of state what she does with the complaints, to which the assistant secretary of state responded they are referred to the attorney general’s office.

Taitz asked the assistant attorney general what their office does with complaints, “sweep them under the carpet?”

Taitz told them she was born in the Soviet Union and asked if she were to lie on her candidacy form and pay the $1,000 fee, would she be able to appear on the ballot.

The assistant secretary of state indicated she would, “unless there was a complaint.”

Considering Taitz had filed an 85-page complaint regarding Obama’s lack of eligibility, complete with documented evidence and sworn affidavits, New Hampshire has apparently decided to employ a double standard.

Despite the attorney general’s website emphasizing it has a “duty” to resolve such complaints, the commission ultimately decided it has no jurisdiction over the matter.

Section 655:17-b Declaration of Intent; Presidential Candidates Who File Nomination Papers, of New Hampshire Statutes states:

“I. Declarations of intent for each candidate for president who seeks nomination by nomination papers shall be in the form provided in paragraph II. Declarations of intent required by this section shall be filed with the secretary of state, signed by the candidate, and notarized by a notary public.

“II.  I, _________, swear under penalties of perjury that I am qualified to be a candidate for president of the United States pursuant to article II, section 1, clause 4 of the United States Constitution, which states, ‘No 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; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.’  I further declare that I am domiciled in the city (or town or unincorporated place) of _____, county of ____, state of ____, and am a qualified voter therein; that I intend to be a candidate for the office of president to be chosen at the general election to be held on the ____ day of ____; and I intend to file nomination papers by the deadline established under RSA 655:43.  I further declare that, if qualified as a candidate for said office, I shall not withdraw; and that, if elected, I shall be qualified for and shall assume the duties of said office.”

Even though the birth certificate produced by Obama has been deemed a forgery, Obama, by his own admission, does not meet the qualifications as a natural born citizen, since Obama’s father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was a British subject at the time of Obama’s birth and was neither a citizen nor resident alien.

He has also produced a fraudulently created Selective Service System registration in 2008, since failure to register by the time he turned 26 would forever have precluded Obama from holding a job with the executive branch of the federal government.

The falsified registration also confirmed Obama’s official use of the same Connecticut-issued Social Security number that was not only not assigned to him, but produced a SSN mismatch letter when run through the federal E-Verify system to check Obama’s eligibility to work in this country.

New Hampshire, which became the ninth state on June 21, 1788, and was the birthplace of our 14th President Franklin Pierce in 1804, has one of the more memorable state mottos, “Live Free or Die.”

The motto, originally written as a toast by General John Stark on July 31, 1809, was adopted as the state motto by the legislature in 1945 and incorporated into the state emblem.

Stark, considered the state’s “most distinguished hero of the Revolutionary War,” sent what became the state motto as part of a volunteer toast to his wartime comrades in 1809 as he declined an invitation to a 32nd anniversary reunion of the 1777 Battle of Bennington in Vermont, due to poor health.

The toast in full, stated, “Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst Of Evils.”

The following year, Stark received a similar invitation, which he also declined, stating, “The toast, sir, which you sent us in 1809 will continue to vibrate with unceasing pleasure in our ears, ‘Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst Of Evils.’”

New Hampshire adopted its 10th official state song, “Live Free or Die” by Barry Palmer in 2007, while its motto seems to ring hollow.

“So in honor of conspiracy theorists everywhere, we're re-releasing the campaign's limited-edition ‘Made in the USA’ mugs.

“There's clearly nothing we can do to satisfy this crowd — or anyone else who insists on wasting time and energy on nonsense like this.”
