Skip to comments.Obamagate - a brewing scandal about his citizenship
Posted on 11/12/2008 4:34:56 AM PST by Polarik
I am truly disturbed ... about the fears that are rampantly mounting, concerning the question of Mr. Obama being a natural born U.S. citizen, as required by the Constitution, to run for the office of the presidency of the United States. These fears are based on three elements:
* The failure of the RNC to execute a thorough vetting process, ensuring Mr. Obama is a Natural Born U.S Citizen.
* The failure of Mr. Obama to provide a legitimate Certificate of Live Birth (COLB). >p? * The failure of big media to perform its function as the watchdog "Fourth Branch" of the government.
This issue led Philip J. Berg, a long time Democrat and attorney, to file suit against Barack H. Obama, (Lawsuit Continues) challenging Senator Obamas lack of "qualification" to serve as President of the United States.
"This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution, Berg said in a statement. If I dont have standing, if you dont have standing, if your neighbor doesnt have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States - the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world - then who does? So, anyone can just claim to be eligible for congress or the presidency without having their legal status, age or citizenship questioned."

Although Jerome Corsi would argue that he started the inquiry about Obama's citizenship, even he had nothing enlightening to say about the bogus birth certificate.
If I had a dollar for how many media outlets refused to print my story, I could retire.
But, at least we've got others waking up to this sobering reality.
Polarik, I have admired your work regarding this issue since I joined FR and I appreciate all you have done.
I want to continue to fight this. It may be that Obama WAS born in Hawaii, it may be he never lost a US citizenship in Indonesia, or he perfectly legally reobtained his “natural born” citizenship as an adult. But the fact that he thinks he can skate on in on his word is terrifying. And that no one questions this is even more so.
I've had to show my birth certificate several times over the years (and years).
Pro or con vis-a-vis Obama's birth certificate -- why do the little people have to do it and the ruling elite do not? 'Tain't fair, McGee.
It is true, is it not, that O and the DNC are/were paying lawyers to fight the release of the BC? If they are really fighting this thing, then thats just another amazing example of media bias, as thats the sort of thing (paying attorneys to cover up a simple fact) that would normally attract a HUGE amount of press coverage.
It has been clear from the first time I heard of Obama that he will ignore any rules and regulations which get in his personal path.
He will also run the nation in the same manner.
The courts’ dismissal of these suits for “lack of standing” of the filers to demand the upholding of the US Constitution- is at least as big a story as their claims
Note to all those who say “Move along, nothing to see here...”
None of the courts has found the complaints to be without merit.. They dismiss based on the “lack of standing” of citizens to demand action!
In Berg’s case, as a democrat donor, the judge in PA blew off his suit because he could not show significant enough personal damage if a fraudulent Presidential candidate was fielded by his party - and possibly elected!.
But, but, but, the Dem’s say the real deal was provided 2 years ago. Would they lie?
If this was a Republican President-elect, the media would be in full constitutional crisis mode, camped out in front of the White House, with a clock tick-tocking until inauguration.....
awaiting certified proof and exhibition of the Republican’s birth certificate.
Because most of us little people wouldn't sell our soul to the devil to get what we want.
Ya know...if this guy is NOT an American citizen-and personally-I don’t believe he is-then we’ve been Trojan Horsed bigger than anybody in all of human history-even worse than the Trojans. And, BTW, somebody just bought 12 Carrier Battle Groups for 600 million dollars.
You know, this dufuss needs to address this now and put it to rest (if he can). Otherwise it is going to dog him for the next 4 years. That he won’t (or maybe can’t) put it to rest now is suspect.
This is a loser. Obama assured that when he selected Biden as his running mate. Nobody, not Republicans, not even Democrats, wants a President Biden.
I suspect that, if Obama is truly not a natural born citizen, the congressional Democrats will keep it under their hats as assurance against a posibility of a time when there is a conflict between the executive and the legislative branches. One party rule inevitably results in splits between faction within the party.
Unfortunately, Berg has been shown to be unstable. He has filed many frivolous and bizarre lawsuits. This does not mean, however, that Obama’s eligibility should not be pursued.
If someone is hiding something, it’s generally because they have something to hide.
It’s just that simple. The media won’t help you; they don’t give a damn, and like The Obamassiah, they consider the Constitution to be an aging annoyance.
This whole thing turns my stomach. We’ve become a Third World backwater.
“That he wont (or maybe cant) put it to rest now is suspect.....”
there may be an upside to all this....none of his Executive Orders will be legal.....
“He will also run the nation in the same manner.”
I believe that the word is out that he will RULE (not “run”) the nation. And, as all dems do, he will ignore any rules that don’t further his agenda.
“The failure of the RNC to execute a thorough vetting process...”
What about failure of the DNC?
To hear certain people tell it this was all a brilliantly executed trap to lure republicans into losing the election by embarrassing their candidate and allowing Obama to walk on water into the White House.
Which he seems to have done with out our help.
So why is this still an issue and better yet why is it gaining momentum?
Barry Soetoro has his birth certificate and it has that name on it, which is why it has been sealed, why he cannot show it, that’s what is so damaging he can never reveal it.
Barry Soetoro is not Barack Obama, he didn’t become Barack Obama until he met his real father in 1971(?). Prior to that he had two different names, his original name which you cannot find in either newspaper clipping that is on his original birth certificate and Barry Soetoro which was his legal name after he was adopted in Indonesia.
My guess is that it has never been legally changed since his adoption by Lolo Soetoro, he just decided after meeting his father to call himself Barack Hussein Obama Jr.
The question then becomes quite honestly is he entitled to run for president under an assumed name, especially if there is no documentation that shows that he ever legally changed it from what it was originally or after he was adopted.
This has to be the reason he continues to hide his original Birth Certificate.
Leo Donofrio case is now also before the SCOTUS. SInce he is suing the SOS of NJ for not performing the duty of the office, some here feel he has a better case. Your opinion?
