COMPLAINT FOR DECLARTORY AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF PRELIMINARY STATEMENT

  1. Article II, Section I of the United States Constitution, states in particular part, "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." Furthermore, all Presidents since and including Martin Van Buren were born in the United States subsequent to the Declaration of Independence.
  2. "The general doctrine of our Constitution is, that the executive power of the nation is vested in the President; subject only to the exceptions and qualifications, which are expressed in the instrument." 7 Works of Alexander Hamilton, J. C. Hamilton ed. (New

Z:\FO RM S\Obama Complainl.doc

York: 1851), 76, 80-81 (emphasis in original), U.S. Constitution, Article II (Hamilton

and Madison.)

  1. Obama is a representative of the Democratic People. However, the Obama must meet the Qualifications specified for the United States Office of the President, which is he must be a "natural born" citizen. Unfortunately, Obama is not a "natural born" citizen. Just to name one of the problems, Obama lost his U.S. citizenship when his mother married an Indonesian citizen and relocated herself and Obama to Indonesia wherein Obama's mother naturalized in Indonesia and Obama followed her naturalization, as he was a minor and in the custody of his mother. Obama failed to take the oath of allegiance when he turned eighteen (18) years to regain his United States Citizenship status.
  2. The Democratic National Committee is for Plaintiff and "We the People" who believe in the Democratic Vision. The Democratic National Party is supposed to represent the Democratic Americans in seeking honest leadership, Open Government, Real Security, Energy Independence, Economic Prosperity, Educational Excellence, a Healthcare System that works for Everyone and Retirement Security. The Democratic Party is supposed to represent and protect the interests of working Americans and guaranteeing personal liberties for all. Of which includes securing a Democratic Nominee on the Presidential Election ballot who represents the Democratic vision and who is qualified and eligible to run for Office of the President under the qualifications of the United States Constitution.
  3. The actions of Obama, a U.S. Senator, in running for President of the United States, knowing he is not eligible, have been taken entirely without authorization under the

United States Constitution, completely ignoring the qualification and procedures created

>by the United States Constitution he is purporting to enforce.

>6. Should Obama become the Nominee of the Democratic Party and then be discovered by virtue of malfeasance, or negligence, on his part not to have revealed material evidence showing him to be Ineligible for the Office of President of the United States of America and thereby his Nomination be declared void by the appropriate Authorities Acting under the Law, Plaintiff as well as other Democratic Americans will suffer Irreparable Harm including but not limited to:

>A) Functional, or Actual, Disenfranchisement of large numbers of Citizens, being members of the Democratic Party, who would have been deprived of the ability to choose a Nominee of their liking;

>B) Irreparable Harm to the structure and integrity of the Democratic Party and the Democratic National Committee. In tum, this too would lead to Disenfranchisement; and

>C) A severe and genuine likelihood of Civil Disturbance by virtue of reaction to said Disenfranchisement.

JURISDICTION AND VENUE

  1. This case arises under the Constitution and laws of the United States and presents a federal question within this Court's jurisdiction under Article III of the Constitution and 28 U.S.C. § 1331.
  2. This Court has authority to grant declaratory relief pursuant to the Declaratory Judgment Act, 28 U.S. C. § 2201.
  3. Venue is proper in this Court under 28 U.S.c. § 1391(b).

FACTUAL ALLEGATIONS

  1. Since the beginning of the U.S. Constitution, in order to run for Office of the President, you must be a "natural born citizen" and you may not hold dual citizenship or multiple citizenships with foreign Countries. U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 1.
  2. There are questions as to where Obama was actually born, in the United States or abroad and then registered his birth. There are further questions regarding Obama's United States Citizenship, ifhe ever held such, being expatriated and his failure to regain his citizenship by taking the oath of allegiance once he turned eighteen (18) years of age. There are additional questions regarding Obama's multi citizenships with foreign countries, which he still maintains. To date, Obama has refused to prove he is qualified under the U.S. Constitution and his eligibility to run as President ofthe United States.
  3. The facts are undisputed by Obama that his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was a U.S. Citizen however, his father, Barack Obama, Sr., was a Citizen of Kenya. Obama's parents, according to divorce records, were married on or about February 2, 1961.
  4. Obama claims he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4, 1961; however, has never given the name of the hospital he was born in; whereas Obama's grandmother on his father's side, half brother and half sister claim Obama was born in Kenya. Reports reflect Obama's mother went to Kenya during her pregnancy; however, she was prevented from boarding a flight from Kenya to Hawaii at her late stage of pregnancy, which apparently was a normal restriction to avoid births during a flight. Stanley Ann Dunham (Obama) gave birth to Obama in Kenya, after which she flew to Hawaii and registered Obama's birth. There are records of a "registry of birth" for Obama, on or about August 8, 1961 in the public records office in Hawaii.
  5. Upon investigation into the birth of Barack Hussein Obama in Honolulu, Hawaii, Obama's birth is reported as occurring at two (2) separate hospitals, Kapiolani Hospital and Queens Hospital. Wikipedia English Version under the subject "Barack Obama"

Z:\FORMS\Obama Complaint.uoc

states Obama was born at Kapiolani Hospital. Wikipedia Italian Version under the subject "Queens Hospital" states Barack Obama was born in Queens Hospital.

  1. There are further references circulating on the internet claiming examination of the hospital's records in Hawaii show no birthing records for Stanley Ann Dunham (Obama), Obama's mother. However, there are records of a "registry of birth" for Obama, on or about August 8, 1961 in the public records office in Hawaii.
  2. Wayne Madsen, Journalist with Online Journal was a contributing writer and published an article on June 9, 2008 stating the GOP sent a research team to Mombasa, Kenya and located a Certificate Registering the birth of Barack Obama, Jr. at a Maternity Hospital, to his father, a Kenyan Citizen and his mother, a U.S. Citizen.
  3. At the time ofObama's birth in 1961, Kenya was a British Colony.
  4. There is a Canadian Birth Certificate posted on the Internet in the name of Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.; however, the date of birth shows to be August 23, 1961.
  5. Under the Independence Constitution of Kenya, Obama became a Kenyan citizen on December 12, 1963. Chicago-based Internet journalist, broadcaster and critic Andy Martin states Obama has never renounced his Kenyan citizenship. Andy Martin further states on Obama's Senate web site, Obama tap dances around his own dual nationality when discussing his father. Obama obviously knows, because his father told the Obama, that he (Obama) also held/holds Kenyan nationality.
  6. If in fact Obama was born in Kenya, the laws on the books at the time of his birth stated if a child is born abroad and one parent was a U.S. Citizen, which would have been his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama's mother would have had to live ten (10) years in the United States, five (5) of which were after the age of fourteen (14). At the time of

Z:\FORMS\Obama Complaint.doc

Obama's birth, his mother was only eighteen (18) and therefore did not meet the

residency requirements under the law to give her son (Obama) U.S. Citizenship. The laws in effect at the time of Obama's birth prevented U.S. Citizenship at birth of children born abroad to a U.S. Citizen parent and a non-citizen parent, if the citizen parent was under the age of nineteen (19) at the time of the birth of the child. Obama's mother did not qualify under the law on the books to register Obama as a "natural born" citizen. Section 301(a)(7) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of June 27,1952,66 Stat. 163, 235, 8 U.S.c. §1401(b), Matter of S-F-and G-, 2 I & N Dec. 182 (B.I.A.) approved (Att'y Gen. 1944). Obama would have only been Naturalized and a Naturalized citizen is not qualified and/or eligible to run for Office of the President. U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section Clause 4.

  1. Furthermore, if Obama had been born in Kenya, his birth father Barack Obama, Sf. was a citizen of Kenya; therefore, Obama would have automatically become a citizen of Kenya.
  2. In or about 1967, when Obama was approximately six (6) years old, his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, a citizen of Indonesia and moved to Indonesia with Obama. At this time, if Obama was Registered as a "natural born" citizen, which he did not qualify to be registered as, he would have lost his U.S. Citizenship when his mother married Lolo Soetoro and took up residency in Indonesia. The first requirement is that naturalization must be achieved through "application." Such type of naturalization occurs, for example, when a person acquires a foreign nationality by marriage to a national of that country. Nationality Act of 1940, Section

Z:\FORMS\Obama Complaint.doc

>317(b). Additionally, there is rumor circulating on the Internet that his Indonesian stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, adopted Obama.

  1. >The Nationality Act of 1940 provided for the loss of citizenship when the person became naturalized upon the naturalization of his or her parent having custody of such person. Obama's mother expatriated her U.s. Citizenship when she married Lolo Soetoro, a citizen of Indonesia and relocated her and her son (Obama) to Indonesia.
  2. >Obama was enrolled by his parents in a public school, Fransiskus Assisi School in Jakarta, Indonesia. Plaintiff has received copies of the school registration where it clearly states Obama's name as Barry Soetoro and lists his citizenship as Indonesian, Obama's father is listed as Lolo Soetoro, Obama's date of birth and place of birth are listed as August 4,1961 in Honolulu and Obama's Religion is listed as Islam. This document was verified by television show Inside Edition, whose reporter, Matt Meagher took the actual footage of the school record.
  3. >In or about 1971, Obama's mother sent Obama back to Hawaii. Obama was ten (10) years of age upon his return to Hawaii.
  4. >Sometime after the return of Obama to Hawaii, Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham returned to Hawaii and divorced her husband, Lolo Soetoro. At the time of Divorce, Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham could have regained her U.S. Citizenship. In order to regain her citizenship, Obama's mother would have had to take the oath of allegiance required. Such oath of allegiance may be taken abroad before a diplomatic or consular of the United States, or in the United States before the Attorney General or the judge or clerk of a Court. Such Oath of allegiance would have been entered in the records of the appropriate embassy, legation, consulate, court or the

>L\FORMS\Ohama Complaint.ooc

Attorney General and upon demand, a certified copy of the proceedings, including a copy of the oath administered, under the seal of the embassy, legation, consulate, court or the Attorney General shall be delivered. The certified copy shall be evidence of the facts stated therein before any court of record or judicial tribunal and in any department or agencyoftheGovernment oftheUnitedStates. 8U.S.c.§1435.

31. As stated above, The Nationality Act of 1940 provided for the loss of citizenship when the person became naturalized upon the naturalization of his or her parent having custody of such person. Obama's mother expatriated her U.S. Citizenship when she married Lolo Soetoro, a citizen of Indonesia and relocated her and her son (Obama) to Indonesia.

Obama's mother failed to take the oath in order to regam her U.S. Citizenship. Therefore, Obama would not have been able to regain his U.S. Citizenship until he turned eighteen (18) years after he took the oath of allegiance before a diplomatic or consular officer of the United States, or in the U.S. before the Attorney General or the judge or clerk of court. Plaintiff is informed, believes and thereon alleges Obama failed to regain his citizenship by taking the oath of allegiance. Since the oath of allegiance would have been entered in the records of the appropriate embassy, legation, consulate, court or the Attorney General, if Plaintiff is incorrect, then Obama should be able to produce in Court a certified copy of the proceedings, including a copy of the oath administered.

Investigation further showed in 1981, Obama traveled to Pakistan usmg his Indonesian passport. At the time of travels to Indonesia, Obama was twenty (20) years old. He was well aware he maintained his Indonesia citizenship, and failed to regain his United States citizenship. Indonesia does not allow dual citizenship. Had Obama

Z:\FORMS\Obama COl11plaint.doc

regained his United States citizenship, he would have been traveling on a United States Passport.

Obama and his Campaign office have been asked Obama's Certificate of Birth in order to prove he is a "natural born" citizen as required by the U.S. Constitution.

  1. After many attempts of the public to obtain Obama's Certificate of Birth, a Hawaiian CCl1iticate of Live Birth (COLB) was placed on Obama's campaign website. However, as posted all over the internet, three (3) independent Document Forensic Experts performed extensive Forensic testing on the Certificate of Live Birth posted on Obama's campaign \vebsite. Thc Forensic Expert findings were the Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) was in a forgery. It was further discovered that this original Cer1ificate of Live Bil1h which had becn altered and f()rged was issued to Maya Kasandra Soetoro, born in J 970. Maya Kasandra Soetoro is Obama's half sister \vho was born in Indonesia and her birth was later registered in Hawaii. The altered and forged COLB is still on Obama's website located at http://my.barackobama.com/page/invite/birthcert
  2. Further investigation led to Obama's State Bar Registration and Public Disciplinary Record. On the Illinois State Bar Registration and Public Disciplinary Record it specifically asks for "Full former name(s). Obama put "None," when in fact he went by the name Barry Soetoro, and Barry Obama. It is further believed Obama has used the name Barry Dunham. Obama lied on the State government form that he signed under the penalty of perjury.
  3. Even if Obama maintained his United States Citizenship, which he failed to do, he also carries citizenships in Kenya and Indonesia. Obama has divided loyalties with

Z\FORMS\Ohama Comr1aint.doc

foreign countries. Thus, Obama carries multiple citizenships and is ineligible to run for President of the United States. United States Constitution, Article II, Section 1.

  1. All the efforts of supporters of legitimate citizens were for nothing because the Obama cheated his way into a fraudulent candidacy and cheated legitimately eligible natural born citizens from competing in a fair process and the supporters of their citizen choice for the nomination.
  2. Voters donated money, goods and services to select a nominee, and were defrauded by Obama's obfuscations. Obama clearly shows consciousness of guilt by his actions by posting a forged birth certificate on his website, and by and the falsifications he told to cover his loss of citizenship.
  3. Obama proclaims himself a Constitutional scholar and lecturer, but did not learn he had no eligibility to become President except by means of obfuscations and deceptions.
  4. The injunctive relief must be granted because failing to do so, this inaction defrauds everyone who voted in the Democratic Primary for a nominee that is a fair representation of the voters. Failure to grant injunctive relief would allow a corrupted, fraudulent nomination process to continue.
  5. It not only allows, but promotes an overwhelming degree of disrespect and creates such a lack of confidence in voters of the primary process itself, so that it would cement a prevailing belief that no potential candidate has to obey the laws of this country, respect our election process, follow the Constitution, or even suffer any consequence for lying and defrauding voters to get onto the ballot when they have no chance of serving if they fraudulently manage to get elected.
  6. If declaratory and injunctive relief is not given, it would be extremely unfair to the country for candidates of either party to become the nominee when there is any question as to the nominee's eligibility to serve if elected.
  7. As stated above, Plaintiff as well as Democratic American Citizens will suffer Irreparable Harm if Declaratory and Injunctive relief is not granted. Plaintiff does not have any other way of redress regarding these very significant and important issues.
  8. The DNC has failed Plaintiff and the Democratic American Citizens by their failure to perform due diligence and inquire into Obama's eligibility to run for Office of the President.

VIOLATION OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, ARTICLE II, SECTION I

  1. >Plaintiff hereby incorporates Paragraphs 1 through 45 as if fully set forth herein.
      >
    1. >The United States Constitution, Article II, Section I, Clause 4, Qualifications, Office of President, 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
    2. >thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."
  2. >Obama's failure to maintain his United States Citizenship makes him ineligible to run for Office ofthe President.
  3. >Obama, if born in Kenya would have made him a citizen of Kenya. Furthennore, because of the 1940 Naturalization Act, June 1952, Obama's mother would have had to be nineteen (19) in order for Obama to be a "natural born" United States citizenship upon registration of his birth. Obama's mother was only eighteen (18) when she birthed Obama and therefore was not old enough to meet the residency requirements under our laws at the time of Obama's birth and be able to register her son's birth as a "natural born" citizen.
  4. >Even if Obama would have been able to be registered as a "natural born" citizen in Hawaii, he lost his citizenship in the United States when his mother married Lolo Soetoro, a citizen of Indonesia and then took Obama to Indonesia and set up residency with her new husband.
  5. >Obama's mother could have regained her and Obama's United States Citizenship status when she divorced her husband, Lolo Soetoro and moved back to Hawaii. However, in order to regain her citizenship in the United States she would have had to take the oath of allegiance, which would have been recorded. Obama's mother never did take the oath of allegiance to regain her citizenship In the United States.
  6. >Moreover, Obama could have regained his citizenship in the United States when he turned eighteen (18), again by taking the oath ofallegiance that would have been recorded. However, Obama failed to do so.
  7. >The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is supposed to represent and protect the interests of working Americans, which includes securing a Democratic

Nominee on the Presidential Election ballot who represents the Democratic vision and who is qualified and eligible to run for Office of the President under the qualifications of the United States Constitution. The DNC has failed to inquire into Obama's eligibility status.

54. For the above aforementioned reasons, Obama needs to immediately supply a certified copy of his oath of allegiance proving he regained his United States Citizenship. In addition, Obama needs to furnish a certified copy of his Certificate of Live Birth to further prove he was born in Hawaii as he claims. However, if Obama is unable to supply a certified record of his oath of allegiance, he needs to immediately step down and withdrawal his candidacy for President.

WHEREFORE, Plaintiff respectfully prays that this Court:

A. Declare that Defendant Barack Hussein Obama, a/k/a Barry Obama, a/k/a Barry Soetoro, a/k/a Barack Soetoro, a/k/a Barry Dunham, a/k/a Barack Dunham is ineligible to run for United States Office ofthe President under the United States Constitution, Article II, Section I;

DUAL CITIZENSHIP

  1. Plaintiff hereby incorporates Paragraphs 1 through 54 as if fully set forth herein.
  2. From the beginning of our Constitution, our forefathers inferred a person running for Office of the President could not have divided loyalties. This was a result of people coming from England to the United States who owed loyalties to both England and the United States. Our forefather's did not want a person with dual loyalties to be able to secure the position as President of the United States.
  3. This inference is taken from Article II, Section I, which plainly states qualifications for Office of the President must be a "natural born" citizen.
  4. The United States President cannot run our Country and have responsibilities and obligations owed to other countries.
  5. Obama is not eligible to run for Office of the United States President as his mother failed to regain her citizenship after her divorce to Lolo Soetoro, a citizen of Indonesia, when Obama was a minor and Obama himself failed to regain his

United States Citizenship when he turned eighteen (18). Therefore, Obama is not

“The constitution says you cannot hold dual citizenship and run for office of President.”

Please find and post that clause. I can’t find it.

To: Bryan24
Ok, here is the deal, how I interpret the constitution and how, I am fairly sure, the founding fathers meant it to be read. This is the requirement for holding the office of President:

"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."

A Natural born citizen, not a naturalized citizen, and why was that? The reason was simple, in notes of the founding fathers they mention not wanting divided loyalties.

A natural born citizen of that time was unlikely to ever obtain citizenship from another country, while a naturalized citizen would most likely have citizenship from their native country.

Therefore the founding fathers intent was clear: If you have dual citizenship or any other ties to other countries that would divide your loyalty then you are not eligible for President.

Barrack has dual citizenship, or had it,and he has divided loyalties, therefore he is not eligible by law.

This is a fact. Some people choose not to interpret the constitutional requirements this way but I see it as it was intended to be, no dual citizenship or other divided loyalties, not interpretation is needed actually.

There is nothing on that page that indicates a person who has dual nationality can be the President. The constitution is extremely clear; the wording is not subject to confusion.

FR is really slow today, so I’ll have to check back in later to see your reply.
Here’s what I’ve gathered so far about who is eligible to run for president:


http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.articleii.html
“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. “


http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_amendments_11-27.html
AMENDMENT XIV
Passed by Congress June 13, 1866. Ratified July 9, 1868.

Note: Article I, section 2, of the Constitution was modified by section 2 of the 14th amendment.

Section 1.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.


http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/8/1401.html
The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth:

(a) a person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof;

(b) a person born in the United States to a member of an Indian, Eskimo, Aleutian, or other aboriginal tribe: Provided, That the granting of citizenship under this subsection shall not in any manner impair or otherwise affect the right of such person to tribal or other property;

(c) a person born outside of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents both of whom are citizens of the United States and one of whom has had a residence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions, prior to the birth of such person;

(d) a person born outside of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year prior to the birth of such person, and the other of whom is a national, but not a citizen of the United States;

(e) a person born in an outlying possession of the United States of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year at any time prior to the birth of such person;

(f) a person of unknown parentage found in the United States while under the age of five years, until shown, prior to his attaining the age of twenty-one years, not to have been born in the United States;

(g) a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years: Provided, That any periods of honorable service in the Armed Forces of the United States, or periods of employment with the United States Government or with an international organization as that term is defined in section 288 of title 22 by such citizen parent, or any periods during which such citizen parent is physically present abroad as the dependent unmarried son or daughter and a member of the household of a person

(A) honorably serving with the Armed Forces of the United States, or

(B) employed by the United States Government or an international organization as defined in section 288 of title 22, may be included in order to satisfy the physical-presence requirement of this paragraph. This proviso shall be applicable to persons born on or after December 24, 1952, to the same extent as if it had become effective in its present form on that date; and

(h) a person born before noon (Eastern Standard Time) May 24, 1934, outside the limits and jurisdiction of the United States of an alien father and a mother who is a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, had resided in the United States.

The guy would have standing to sue as a member of the Democrat Party and as a Voting Citizen of the United States. “

IMO, Every properly registered voter in the USA has “standing” to prevent someone who is not qualified under the terms of the Constirution to run for office.

Berg isn’t raising a argument with GOVERNMENT. He is raising a problem with the PARTY who he is a member of. That gives him STANDING.

Berg was a Deputy Attorney General of the state. He is a very experienced trial lawyer. Standing is not something he just missed.

Standing requires individual, particularized harm. >>>>>>

I’m a bit confused and I don’t want to be rude, but this is pretty simple:

If BHO knows he is not eligible and is dupping the Democrat party to become their nominee then he is committing fraud (which is one of the counts of the suit). That fraud would adverserely affect each individual democrat. That couldn’t be more individual and particularized harm.

So I don’t get your argument, especially about the establishment clause.

Someone else is asking me to PROVE that BHO traveled to Pakistan on an Indonesian passport. How should I know? It isn’t my lawsuit. What I said was, if that is true he is in a world of trouble.

You guys need to lay back and watch this unfold. Philip Berg is a big time trial lawyer. For some reason you non-lawyers want to address the issue of standing with him like he is a law student. Why don’t you just read the definition of standing out of the Black’s Law Dictionary to him.

I don’t know if this suit is real, if the accusations are real, BHO is in real trouble.

As you point out, it effects everyone equally. Actually, that's individual and particularized; it is a "general interest common to all members of the public," and that vague type harm--that Constitution isn't being followed--is insufficient to confer standing. As I pointed out, the Court's decision in Lance addresses this very issue:

"[A] plaintiff raising only a generally available grievance about government - claiming only harm to his and every other citizen's interest in proper application of the Constitution and laws, and seeking relief that no more directly and tangibly benefits him than it does the public at large - does not state an Article III case or controversy."

So I don’t get your argument, especially about the establishment clause.

Standing under the establishment clause, for whatever reason, is different. You can have standing to challenge governmental actions under the establishment clause simply be virtue of being a taxpayer. Taxpayer standing allows a plaintiff with only a generalized harm to proceed. This is the type of standing you're pushing for here, but the Court's been very clear that this type of standing doesn't fly outside establishment clause cases.

For some reason you non-lawyers want to address the issue of standing with him like he is a law student.

Someone here is a non-lawyer? Who's that? As far as Mr. Berg goes, it seems that he needs a refresher course on Art. III cases and controversies.

I’m a bit confused

Indeed. Here is a link to Lance. It is a short opinion; only five or six pages. Read it and tell me how Berg has standing, taking particular note of the discussion of Ex parte Levitt.

Yes, when the skeletons come out, the nation needs to know. It is a matter of NATIONAL SECURITY. Unfortunately, the truth about Mr. Obama’s Kenyan and Indonesian citizenship has not been brought out on the floor, not to mention the fraudulent Certificate of Live Birth. Maybe, perhaps, maybe, President Clinton will have the guts to say it! “Barack, the American people need to know that you have a potentially well substantiated lawsuit against you alleging that you are not qualified to be President of the United States!”

What part of “this is not a government action” do you not understand? And YOU are the non-lawyer I’m talking about.

This restraining order is not to restrain actions of the government. It is to restrain the Democratic Party.

That doesn't have anything to do with it. At least in this situation, it's completely irrelevant who he is suing as to whether the plaintiff has standing to bring the action. The question, rather, is whether the injury is indivdiual and particularized or whether is it a general injury shared by the public.

And YOU are the non-lawyer I’m talking about.

Yeah, this old antitrust lawyer I guess just doesn't have a clue. It's not like I litigated--and won--an Article III and prudential standing case in the last year or anything.

Well I do apologize for my assumption. Most who bellow about law aren’t lawyers.

I still don’t agree with you about standing though. I believe as a Democrat he has standing for the reason stated in the complaint. (Although I suspect that complaint was written for public consumption and not as much for the court).

If the Democrats have nominated a Constitutionally unqualified candidate then in essence his vote would be a nullity and would therefore deprive him of his right to vote. I believe a constructive denial of that right to vote would indeed give him standing to challenge his own party on their nominee.

I really don’t like his complaint because it cites internet rumor and wikipedia among other things. I would like to see his exhibits if he has any.

I again didn’t mean to come off rudely.

NO. the question is, was he born a citizen. you do NOT have to be born IN the us to be a us citizen. if you are born outside of the us, there are conditions that only one of your parents need to meet to make you a citizen.”

Go back and read the lawsuit.
At the time of Nobama’s birth, the laws of the USA said that the mother had to be a USA citizen at least 19 years of age, and had lived in the USA for the prior 5 years.
Stanley Ann was 18 when she had Nobama. He’s NOT a naturalized citizen....
If the law has been reworded since, it is not retroactive.

Obama lost his U.S. citizenship when his mother married an Indonesian citizen and relocated herself and Obama to Indonesia
Obama would only lose his citizenship if he renounced it as an adult. A minor does not lose citizenship because his/her parent moves to another country and becomes a citizen.”

Soooo..Nobama kept his Kenyan citizenship intact??? Looks like he was born there.

The TRO needs to have all parties served first. It was a technical denial, but now that all 3 parties finally have been served- took over 2 weeks to get to Nobama (was he ducking service), now it can go forward. Berg is asking for expediting and for a “Master”.

go back and read the citizenship laws. there is NOTHING in regard to being 19 years old. the 5 years do NOT have to be consecutive, although 2 of them do have to be after thhe 14th birthday.

My brother was born in Italy to my parents who were in the US military. Upon his majority (his 18th birthday) the Italian Army called him up for duty. My brother had to declare feilty to the USA and file paperwork to that effect with the Italian government through the US government or he was subject to Italian enlistment requirements.

Berg is stating that Obama was an Indonesian citizen and as such was supposed to, upon his majority, declare feilty to the USA. He did not do this... paperwork to that effect was not done. Therefore, Barack Obama is still an Indoneasian citizen and NOT a citizen of the USA.
Since Obama cannot “prove” citizenship to the USA, with a bona-fide papertrail, and he declared that he was a citizen of Kenya on Columbia University enrollment papers, there is reasonable doubt as to his real citizenship that the courts need to determine.

Seems there’s an easy enough way to prove his U.S. citizenship: provide legal documentation stating as much. Provide it to the court. End of case.

Since he has not done this, and since he refuses to do it and is, instead, filing motions to dismiss, the only question I have is, “what’s he trying to hide?”

I can prove my citizenship easily enough: I have a valid, sealed and signed Birth Certificate from the state of California. Why can’t Barack just do the same?

He’s hiding something and that something may ultimately may disqualify him from holding public office.

If he’s successful in being elected - even if ineligible - he will be successful in perpetrating the biggest scam on the American people since Social Security.

This guy is a fraud and needs to be exposed.

The truly sickening part of all this is that obviously BO is unqualified for multiple technical reasons yet I doubt a damn thing happens about this. A foreign agent is about to take over our country and we are left helpless to do nothing about it.

Tell any lib that Obama was born in Kenya and they will say “so”? Its insanity!

liberalism=mental disorder.

Obama is an empty suit with very powerful and very wealthy radical America hating leftists pulling his strings...and I just get the feeling they have somehow taken care of this “trivial” matter of him not being qualified to even run for President in the first place.

I still think the only way he wins the election is if he steals it..which he is apparently well on his way to doing.

“In my understanding Article II Requires that one be a “Natural Born Citizen”, and in terms of the Law as understood by the Framers, anyone with Dual Citizenship could not be “Natural Born”. It does not matter that they no longer hold that Citizenship, they fall into the same bracket as a “Naturalized Citizen” because they have/had Divided Allegiance. That is my view and I haven’t moved an inch on it.”

I agree with you. However, the Constitution is silent of the matter. As I said in my earlier post, the concept of dual-citizenship would have been ludicrous to the 18th century mind.
Your reasoning in your argument about the founders’ intentions is impeccable and is, of course, common sense. Yet you know very well that common sense is rarely used to settle constitutional issues anymore!

Especially when he commits forgery with the State Bar and attempts to commit fraud against the U.S. Presidential Election. We can only hope and pray now that if elected he is impeached and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. There is merit to this case or he wouldn’t be dodging the facts with motions to dismiss. People in this country need to wake up before it’s too late.
