FEC draft opinion saying non U.S.-born naturalized citizens can file and raise funds to run for President
Action Alert Below

Excerpt from Roll Call: The Federal Election Commission is showing signs that it might allow a Guyana-born American citizen to file papers and raise money to run for president of the United States.

The agency released two draft advisory opinions Friday that could permit New York lawyer Abdul Hassan to go through the initial steps to run for president. But the FEC’s pending decision won’t be the last word on the constitutional issue of whether someone born outside the United States can be president.

Hassan was born in the South American country in 1974, and he asked the FEC in July whether he could raise funds as a candidate for president.

The request 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 or older and be a “natural born citizen.”

The agency quickly signaled that it would decide the technicalities of filing requirements while leaving the broader issue of who can run for president to the judicial branch. In an email to Hassan on July 18, the FEC stated that he understood “that although the Commission can respond to the questions asked in [his] advisory opinion, the Commission cannot make any determination as to whether [Hassan] can, as a naturalized citizen, serve as President.”

Both advisory opinions answer three of Hassan’s four questions in a similar way. They state that Hassan could be a candidate, may solicit funds and would be required to file disclosure reports. But the two opinions differ on whether he may receive federal matching funds.

The first draft states that Hassan would not be allowed to receive matching funds because “the United States Constitution provides that ‘[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.’”

The second draft ducks the issue, stating that the “Commission expresses no opinion regarding this question” because it is a “hypothetical.” HERE

Pixel Patriot: The audacity of the FEC to think that lawyer gobbledygook legal ease is going to fly in the era known as the Obama Crime Spree is beyond hope. This FEC Advisory Opinion on the Abdul Karim Hassan request not only demonstrates a wanton and demonstrably reckless disregard for the rule of law, but it is exhibit A for the American people to see that we are no longer a nation of laws at all. If they can get away with this, they can get away with anything, ANYTHING!

Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution clearly requires the President of the United States to be a Natural Born Citizen. It is not a recommendation, an option or an exercise in futility. It is a requirement. Period.

Let’s have a closer look at what it is they have said:

“The Commission concludes that Mr. Hassan may qualify as a ‘candidate’ under the Act.”


No freakin’ way. Are they out of their minds?

He was born in Guyana in 1975.

Then they say:

“The Act and the Commission's regulations do not address a candidate's status as either a natural born citizen or naturalized citizen.”

Mr. Hassan has already done that for them:

“Mr. Hassan indicates that he satisfies all of the constitutional requirements for serving as President, except the national born citizen requirement in Article II, Section 1 Clause 5 of the Constitution."

If you will remember, Obama admitted he is a native born Citizen with dual allegiance because his father was from Kenya and NEVER an American citizen which precludes him from being a Natural Born Citizen and eligible for the Presidency and that didn’t stop him either.

This is fraud. People wake up. This is FRAUD.

The FEC even has a law against what their own advisory opinion denotes:

Fraudulent solicitation of funds, prohibited, 2 U.S.C. § 441h(b)

It is posted on their own website here:


Compiled by


Back to their OPINION:

“Mr. Hassan does not intend to falsely represent or solicit funds for a campaign that is not his”

What they are saying here is as long as he is not falsely representing or soliciting funds for someone else’s campaign, it is quite alright for him to falsely represent or solicit funds for his own campaign.

Are you people tired of this already? Have you had enough yet?

FEC draft opinion saying non U.S.-born naturalized citizens can file and raise funds to run for President


  1. Why are these brain dead assholes even talking about this? Isn't Mr. Oblowme doing a good enough job destroying this f--king country. Somebody wake me up, this must be a nightmare.

  2. California Birther/Dualer/DoubterAugust 27, 2011 at 7:47 PM

    If the avalanche of comments sure to follow doesn't persuade the FEC to do the right thing, then I'm sure a lawsuit will. A favorable ruling would then cast a spotlight on Barry being anything but a natural-born citizen.

  3. this is some serious bs...i think its time to "Feed the Tree of Liberty..."Thomasj.

    Live Free , Dle well...

  4. I hope this is wrong, but I have heard several times that ANYONE can RUN for president, and that some, (besides Obama), that are not eligible have ran. They should not be allowed to ever be sworn in to actually be president however, unless they are Constitutionally eligible. That didn't happen with Obama because no one had the balls to block the "historic first black president."

    It seems the Constitution has been completely trashed on this issue with the precedent of an apparent illegal alien in Obama paving the way for anything goes as far as being president of the late, and formally great nation of the United States of America.

    No state will pass any meaningful requirements for checking eligibility for fear it will be said they are picking on Obama.

  5. OMG I can't even believe these idiots are entertaining the idea of letting this a$$wipe run for POTUS!!! HELL NO he's not qualified and if they let him run, then it's over...we're busting DC wide open!

  6. There is strong evidence that the occupier of the White House is a criminal and imposter. All of it has been published and is widely available.
    The worst part of these crimes is not of the accused, but rather those who are now duplicitous by their inaction to bring the criminal and his conspirators to justice.
    Our elected representatives have been elected by the people and took an oath to support and defend the constitution of the United States.
    All of them have refused to act, ignoring the will of the people.
    They are protecting a criminal from justice.
    They are co-conspirators.
    The law is a hindrance to them and they ignore it every chance they get.
    They simply do not care what the average citizen thinks anymore.
    They have become an elite oligarchy.
    They spend trillions of dollars for things we do not want or need and ignore constitution and do nothing about the criminal imposter occupying the White House.
    The people now pay their taxes not out of love of the constitution but because they fear the government.
    There is no need to vote anymore because no government official will do anything to end the corruption and bring the criminal in the White House to justice.
    They are addicted to power and the benefits of the ruling class.
    With these truths being self-evident, it is clear that the government no longer responds to the will of the people.
    Only a revolution can change the present state of affairs.
    It’s all the people have left.
    God save America.

  7. A little (very little) research would go a long way before publishing a story that is a non-story.

    Hassan sued in the Eastern District of NY. He lost.

    He appealed to the Second Circuit. The Second Circuit affirmed the lower court's ruling but stated that the EDNY should have dismissed on the issue of standing. The Second Cirtuit's ruling came down in June.

    Nevertheless this case (issue) is long dead.



    Being eligible to register and receive matching funds and being obligated for reporting requirements on those funds (which is the question the FEC spoke to) is completely different from being eligible to run for president under the Constitution. The FEC issued an advisory opinion based solely on the requirements of the Act, not the Constitutional requirements.

  8. It was enough of a story for Roll Call to publish.

    Everything pertaining to Article 2 is "non-story" for you Obots.

  9. i agree with cali birther, this kinda stupidity by the FEC would only help to focus more attention on the mysterious maylay-kenyan, president.. idei amin obama

  10. If the FEC's rules for being eligible to register and receive matching funds to campaign/run for POTUS don't require being eligible to serve as POTUS per the Constitution then the FEC's rules need to be changed to require same IMMEDIATELY IF NOT SOONER!

    In fact, the FEC should be given a mandate to verify the eligibility of every candidate for POTUS and every candidate should be required to submit proof of their eligibility to the FEC no later than 12 months prior to election day. Upon receiving said proof the FEC should be required to immediately post same on its web-site so the electorate could evaluate same.

    Otherwise the presidential eligibility clause in the Constitution means nothing.


  11. Folks, please read this!! One of the 6 administrators of the "Federal Elections Commission" is a former "Perkins and Coie" staff member. Perkins and Coie are Obamas personal attorneys protecting him from us and all the lawsuits that have been thrown at him. "What a coincidence!

    Go here to:

    This thing is open to public comment until this coming Wed. Aug. 31st. We need to let them know we know what is going on and we must demand that the Natural Born Citizen clause means a citizen mom and dad from US soil period. And Obama did not and does not qualify. There is NO "hypothetical" standards to the natural born question. It is a simple concept to understand.

    Further, Know this, we are not the first "birthers", The democrats were when they went after McCain for being born in Panama as they tried to derail his candidacy from the start then Obama simply ignored all of us who demanded answers from him. He had all the democrats and the media to stop his detractors. Now we can add all of the republican house and senate! "Do they wonder why they are as attractive as road kill?"

  12. suntango (August 28, 2011 8:56 AM)

    Suntango, do name names....
    a google search for the councel listed on the FEC advisory opinion doesn't pull up a link to Perkins and Coi
    Which administrator?

  13. UNBELIEVABLE, and yet I don't doubt this is true. Americans need to understand the underlying intention of considerations such as this. The powers that put obama the fraud into the presidency also have a long-term goal. And I think we all realize that is to eventually rid the world of sovereign nations, so that world government can enslave us, unopposed by pesky things like the US Constitution. We are the frog in the slowly boiling pot of water people! Please pass this to all your contacts, even your friends who don't get the whole birther thing. They SHOULD be able to understand the problem with this scenario. May God help us, and I don't say that in jest.

  14. It is not the job of the FEC nor is it within their mandate or province to decide who is constitutionally eligible for the presidency... Never has been. Their job, inaccordance with the act, is to monitor and enforce the financial aspects of campaigns.

    In 1975, Congress created the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to administer and enforce the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) - the statute that governs the financing of federal elections. The duties of the FEC, which is an independent regulatory agency, are to disclose campaign finance information, to enforce the provisions of the law such as the limits and prohibitions on contributions, and to oversee the public funding of Presidential elections.

  15. @suntango

    "The democrats were when they went after McCain for being born in Panama as they tried to derail his candidacy from the start"

    Revisionist history. It was Markham Robinson, of the American Independent Party, who did this. On August 11, 2008 he filed a complaint for declaratory and injunctive relief to derail McCain's appearance on the California ballot.

    You can thank the AIP for the unfavorable precedent that was established by that case.

    Yeah, what a coincidence that the Commissioner (they are not called "administrators" they are Commissioners) happened to be appointed by Pres. George W. Bush in 2002. Who'd a thunk?

  20. If you go to the FEC website and read the bio of Mrs. Weintraub you will see former employment of Perkins and Coie. Further, I wrote a letter to the FEC and none of the fax fax numbers work that are listed on the Public Comment page. Will try again Monday.

    It is clear that the Federal Election Commission knows nothing about what they are doing-
    If they deny this man the ability to run for prez then why did they allow Obama? and if they allow it, which they have to do now since they allowed Obama, they are again doing the wrong thing, right? Typical government operation FUBAR.

  21. From the FEC Website BIO on Mrs Weintraub
    Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub
    Ellen Weintraub received a recess appointment to the Federal Election Commission on December 6, 2002, and took office on December 9, 2002. She was renominated on January 9, 2003, and confirmed by unanimous consent of the United States Senate on March 18, 2003. Shortly after her arrival at the FEC, Ms. Weintraub was elected Chair of the Commission for the year 2003. She is the third woman to serve on the Commission.
    Prior to her appointment, Ms. Weintraub was Of Counsel to Perkins Coie LLP and a member of its Political Law Group. There, she counseled clients on federal and state campaign finance laws, political ethics, nonprofit law, and lobbying regulation. During the election contest arising out of the 1996 election of Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Ms. Weintraub served on the legal team that advised the Senate Rules Committee. Her tenure with Perkins Coie represented Ms. Weintraub’s second stint in private practice, having previously practiced as a litigator with the New York firm of Cahill Gordon & Reindel.
    Before joining Perkins Coie, Ms. Weintraub was Counsel to the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct for the U.S. House of Representatives (the House Ethics Committee). Like the Commission, the Committee on Standards is a bipartisan body, evenly divided between Democratic and Republican members. There, Ms. Weintraub focused on implementing the Ethics Reform Act of 1989 and subsequent changes to the House Code of Official Conduct. She also served as editor in chief of the House Ethics Manual and as a principal contributor to the Senate Ethics Manual. While at the Committee, Ms. Weintraub counseled Members on investigations and often had lead responsibility for the Committee’s public education and compliance initiatives.
    Ms. Weintraub received her B.A., cum laude, from Yale College and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. A native New Yorker, she is a member of the New York and District of Columbia bars and the Supreme Court bar. She currently resides in Maryland with her husband, Bill Dauster, and their three children.


  23. @suntango

    Notice that Ms. Weintraub was appointed to the FEC in 2002 -- by Pres. Bush and confirmed by a Republican Senate.

    Obviously the Republicans are part of the conspiracy, suntrango, because they appointed and confirmed an election lawyer from Perkins six years before Obama won the nomination. Now THAT'S a conspiracy!

  24. @suntango

    The FEC does not "allow" or "disallow" candidates to run. You need to acquaint yourself with what the FEC's role in elections is. It is to monitor campaign finance.


  25. "It is to monitor campaign finance"

    Which they utterly failed to do in 2008.

  26. The very first birthers were Democratic Party operatives going after Senator John McCain in Jan and Feb 2008. Meet Poppa Birther, Professor Jonathan Turley


  28. Let me make sure I have this right:

    It is the responsibility of no one or any Department or Commission to determine who can or cannot not run for president.......therefore, anyone can run and if they win the election assume the role of putative president in violation of the eligibility requirements of the Constitution because...that's just the way it is??

  29. To all the anonymous responses to my posts.
    The Federal Elections Commission are referencing the Constitution with regard to Public Campaign Finance and ethics which is why BO went private so he didn't have to deal with that pesky Constitutional requirement of being a natural born citizen which he is not and admitted in a court cast in 2009 and said he was a naturalized citizen through the State Department. He is not a natural born citizen because his daddy was Brit and his momma was too young to confer citizenship upon return to the US from Kenya.

    Second, about "revisionist history", Markey Markum or whoever that also ran was with the Independent American whatever, I never heard a word about him and his objection to McCain but I did hear the roar form the dems only to go silent about BO. I also know that two law suits were filed prior to Obama being sworn in challenging his eligibility and were ignored. Obama was informed that this issue would follow him into and out of office. As it will. And, why isn't that cat screaming about Obama being of questionable get now?

    Third, I didn't read where Mrs. Weintraub resigned from the Political Law Group with Perkins and Coie, did you? So, until I see a formal resignation, termination letter, or similar, she is still associated as far as I am concerned. Besides, the optics of a Perkins and Coie employee, even former is very poor optics for anyone who has followed this Obama malfeasance. Even though Dick Cheney divested himself of the direct oil association he once had, the dems cried foul every stinking day about that and "blood for oil" when we went to flatten Iraq. So that argument doesn't wash.

    Fourth, Yea, I voted for Bush but I am an independent conservative. I knew it was all over when he put his arm around Ted Kennedy and said, "let's spend some taxpayer dollars we can't afford on prescription drugs, education, and two wars. He and the republican senate did nothing about illegal immigration, fuel prices until he was about out of office, and the growing economic problem due to far too lax government controls regarding mortgage lending. The heads of Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac should have been rolling but the dems were playing them up and paying them bonuses while the SEC watched porn on their taxpayer supplied computers and are still employed there! I don't carry a lot of affection with the republicans. Their choices for chair positions in the Federal Elections Commission reflect their stupidity. No conspiracy. Just same lame government irresponsibility.

    No, the sky isn't falling, but nothing good will happen with this economy until that charlatan Obama is out of office by resignation, impeachment, or sound defeat this next cycle.

  30. @John Doe Sr.

    You have half of that right.

    There is no Department or Commission charged with determining the eligibility of a candidate. Anyone can announce his/her candidacy and raise funds for the campaign.

    The candidates are vetted by the voters. Every state has a statute that allows a citizen voter to challenge the eligibility of any candidate to be named on the ballot. You have to follow the scheme laid out by state law and file your challenge within the designated time after the candidate has filed his/her papers.

    If the candidate survives the ballot challenge, the voters determine whether the candidate is eligible. If they decide he/she is, then your next step is to convince at least one Senator and one Congressperson to file a written objection to the certification of the Electoral College. If that is not done, the game is over. If a written objection is filed, each House of Congress retires to its respective chambers and debates the candidate's qualifications. Then the Congress votes on certification, If Congress certifies the electoral vote, that means the President-elect IS qualified and HAS qualified and IS then sworn in.

    So you have several opportunities in 2012 and 2013. Get with it.

  31. This is how Nicaraguan Roger Calero got on the ballots

  32. Anon @ August 28, 2011 5:47 PM

    You make it sound as though there is no problem with the system and that the voters failed in 2008. Even with complaints and lawsuits, Obama hid everything behind privacy rights and has proven the system is irrevocably broken.


    suntango said @ August 28, 2011 5:27 PM

    "nothing good will happen with this economy until that charlatan Obama is out of office by resignation, impeachment, or sound defeat this next cycle."

    1. Actually, none of these alone are sufficient or acceptable. Obama wasn't eligible so he can't be impeached. No matter what happens Obama and his complicit co-conspiritors must be held accountable for their crimes and all actions in office are null and void. Then set about to fix the system with eligibility legislation.


    2. Revolution and then back to 1.

    Either way it gets done.

  33. Well, I'll tell you what, myself and bunch of other Texans filed paperwork charging the Dem chair of Texas for voter fraud for not insuring Obama met constitutional requirements being a natural born citizen to get on the Texas ballot. The Texas atty general said it was a Secretary of State issue. So, I filed the same paperwork and charges with them. The Sec. of State said I needed to file the paperwork and charges with-now get this, the Atty General of Texas. These spineless sots are mostly republicans which is why I have no use for them either but, our paperwork is still in their offices.

    I am doing everything I can to stop this administration within means but we all really need more support because we are running against the propaganda wing of the democrat party being ABC, CBS, NBS, CNN, MSNBC, and sadly, FOX News.

    One of the reasons I feel the republicans are loathe to say anything is because of ridicule and it comes from the leadership.

  34. Anonymous at August 28, 2011 6:10PM

    You are exactly right. There is simply no way the mother of all frauds/scams against America can be allowed to stand and simply be "corrected" by an election. Those involved must be exposed and justice served for America to recover from the damage already done by this regime and it's enablers, and for the Constitution to have a prayer of survival.

    To let these criminals go into the night with their taxpayer retirement and endless other perks, getting away with this massive criminal endeavor is not acceptable....ever.

  35. @suntango

    "I didn't read where Mrs. Weintraub resigned from the Political Law Group with Perkins and Coie, did you? So, until I see a formal resignation, termination letter, or similar, she is still associated as far as I am concerned."

    You also didn't read the Code of Federal Regulations, particularly with respect to the FEC's prohibition on outside employment. All ties were cut in 2002, when she became a member of the Commission. Duh.

  36. @suntango

    "Well, I'll tell you what, myself and bunch of other Texans filed paperwork charging the Dem chair of Texas for voter fraud for not insuring Obama met constitutional requirements being a natural born citizen to get on the Texas ballot.

    Well, then, there's your problem. You didn't follow the Texas Election Code, Chapter 141, properly. Next time hire an experienced attorney who specializes in election law, as the Texa Code is fraught with pitfalls.

  37. @Anonymous
    "You can thank the AIP for the unfavorable precedent that was established by that case."

    AIP (Allen Keyes) has demanded that Obama be vetted. Has that caused the congress/senate to vet him? NO!

    So in typical Obot fashion you can't think past the written word. The AIP may have posed the question, but it was the Dems senate that made sure a big deal was made of McCain (who I don't support), but refused/refuses to address the REAL ineligiable person.

    This is NOT a Dem and Rep thing. This is a Constitutional issue. You Obots need to get past the stupid political party crap. They are both corrupt and taking advantage of people that can't think for themselves.

  38. 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 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 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???

  39. @Anonymous
    Hey Suntango

    Your problem is that you are part of the problem. Don't address the real issue. Tie the issue up in red tape.

    No one should have to file a law suit to get this eligibility issue looked into. Many have done the discovery that would have been unnessasary, if Obama did not seal all his documents.

    The senate should have, and still should, demand that he release ALL of his documents.

    No one that is clean would spend over $200 MILLION to keep the documents from being released.

  40. Thanks to all who are doing whatever they can to expose the illegal. What happened to Sheriff Joe Arpaio? He ought to be making an announcement this week before the holiday so as to let us know that he's on top of things. Or am I dreaming? His silence thus far is eerily peculiar.

  41. To Anonymous "Duh" I am not going to read the Federal Register every time this type of political incest occurs because these people don't give a damn about the law anyway or Obama would still be a second string, back bench, POS lying, self absorbed, arrogant, narcissistic, empty suit with a big mouth senator!

    The FEC did not question the foreign donations or any of the other stuff people bitched about during the last election cycle. If you read the first and second draft of this response to Hassan from the FEC, they are both bereft of the definition of natural born citizen. The FEC is clearly confused over the issue and should not be charged with the authority they are apparently handling in my view.

  42. @Dealio

    One of two things is going on:

    He is all over the issue and is getting his ducks in a line.


    He is backing off from performing his duty for reasons unknown and is looking for a line of BS to use an excuse for what would be dereliction of his duty in order to salvage whatever would be left his reputation as a defender of the law.

  43. There sure are a lot of people named "anonymous" people out there.
