Skip to comments.Senator Obama and the DNC File for Dismissal of Berg vs. Obama
Posted on 09/27/2008 7:08:56 PM PDT by Dajjal
On Thursday September 24th, 2008 Senator Obama and the Democratic National Committee filed a motion to dismiss the Berg vs. Obama lawsuit on the basis that the Court does not have jurisdiction because Mr. Berg "lacks standing to challenge the qualifications of a candidate for President of the United States."
Senator Obama and the Democratic National Committee claim in the accompanying brief that any harm done to Mr. Berg "would adversely affect only the generalized interest of all citizens in constitutional governance" and, therefore, Mr. Berg, as an individual voter "does not have standing based on harm he would suffer." (The complete motion and brief as filed with the Court is attached below.)
Mr. Berg is preparing a response opposing the dismissal which will be presented to the Court over the next few days. At the time of filing, the Court granted preliminary standing. The Court is expected to review the Obama / DNC motion for dismissal and the Berg response quickly. The Court may hold a hearing before issuing a final ruling on standing.
The Motion for Dismissal states:
"Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6), defendants Democratic National Committee and Senator Barack Obama respectfully move the Court for an order dismissing the Complaint on the grounds that this Court lacks subject-matter jurisdiction over the claim asserted and that the Complaint fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted."

Interesting response. It could all be over if they produced the evidence in question. Their stall tactics make me wonder.
Weird. Why don’t they just produce a birth certificate?
Why doesn’t Nobama just produce his birth certificate?
I’m no attorney but it looks like they’re trying to say that Berg doesn’t have the power to file suit??
“No controlling legal authority.” - VP Al Gore Junior
Maybe Berg could get someone who does have the power to file suit.
He’s being put through an “undue hardship” to produce the same legal paperwork that is required to obtain a social security card or obtain other state issued documents and federal employment.
Cause he can’t or won’t.
DING DING DING
“Weird. Why dont they just produce a birth certificate?”
Obvious the truth, whatver it is, is very damaging to Barry Soetoro/Obama
We need a judge to say, “Mr. Obama, you have the power to dismiss this claim.”
What I DO see, is, if Berg could amend his complaint and get Hillary to attach to it, she would have standing.
With our immigrant situation, anchor babies, and so forth, they may be taking the long view, and just providing the data will open the door to “controlling legal authority” over eligibility.
What is the basis for this? Are they claiming Obama wasn’t born in the US or he isn’t a citizen or something? That his real mother isn’t the one who he claims?
I sent the following links to everyone on my email list without a comment. The video and Governor Blunts statement speak for themselves. In the subject line I put:
In Case You Are Interested In Breaking News
So right now candidates do not need to prove they are eligible to be president prior to running (or ever)?
They suspect he may not have been born in the US, and therefore is not eligible to be President. He has never presented a certified birth certificate, only a fake one.
