Skip to comments.Obama Is Using CAIR Lawyer to Defend Him in the Berg Lawsuit
Posted on 10/03/2008 12:20:34 PM PDT by Anti-Hillary
Here come another of those "Guilt by Associations" that Senator Barack Obama will try to weasel himself out of. As you may know, Philip Berg is suing Senator Obama in Civil Court. Berg wants Obama to Produce his real birth certificate to prove that he meets the citizenship requirements to be President. Rather than just product the birth certificate (is he trying to hide something?) Obama's legal team filed a motion to dismiss. One of the Lawyers filing the motion was Joe Sandler (email@example.com) of the Washington law firm Sandler, Reiff, and Young (see the document below).
If Mr. Sandler's name sounds familiar it Should. He is the Legal Hit Man for the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR is an organization with terrorist ties, and has been as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holyland Foundation Hamas Funding trial.
Sandler's role for CAIR has been to stifle people from telling the truth about Islam. For example, last year he tried to get Jihad Expert Robert Spencer banned from speaking to the Young American Foundation, by using a threatening letter. Sandler followed up by threatening columnist Mike Adams for writing about the Spencer incident.
Look, everyone deserves legal representation that is not the Issue. The real issue is why is a candidate for President of the United States, a guy who wants to take over the role of Commander-in-Chief in the war on terror, using the Lawyer for CAIR a group with terrorist connections, to represent him in a law suit? Once again the Junior Senator from Illinois leave us with questions and no answers
Where is Obama’s almost $500 million in questionable campaign money coming from? McCain provides detailed info to FEC on donors but Obama’s money is coming via credit card at $25 donations offshore with fake names. His money is coming from the Middle East, his lawyer on hios Berg case works for CAIR aka Saudi Arabia.
it is up to us to rally those who can still see, and help educate those who have been innocently subverted so that they see the trap they are falling into.
What would be even more shocking is if the MSM ran the story.
I went to BO’s site to check what was posted about his birth cert. Got linked to:
I noticed it’s a Certificate of Live Birth, and in the lower left corner of the document, it has Rev 11/01 LASER.
Why doesn’t he have the original, certified Birth Certificate posted?
What does he not want us to see?
have you ever read this report?
It’s very interesting:
If this were right after 9/11/01, would it get any media coverage?
“How would we know if O were a sleeper Muslim? We wouldnt.”
I’m assuming he is until proven otherwise.
The circumstantial evidence is more consistent with the hypothesis that he is a sleeper than it is otherwise.
Does anyone know?
Thanks for the ping.

Andy Martin, bump!
We had him as our guest speaker about 2 weeks ago.
He went over this entire money laundering scheme with Blackwell.
‘SMOKING GUN’ PROMPTS ANDY MARTIN TO SAY OBAMA SHOULD WITHDRAW AS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE
(NEW YORK)(April 27, 2008) The disclosure today in the Los Angeles Times that Barack Obama laundered money through a law firm to conceal the source of his income while an Illinois state senator is the ‘smoking gun’ that is going to doom his candidacy. www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-killerspin27apr27, ..
Barack Obama should withdraw as a presidential candidate. Immediately. The latest evidence of his professional corruption is going to doom the Democratic Party.
Although the L. A. Times’ reporters have tried to present Obama’s crooked deal in a fair and balanced way, there is no way you can avoid the conclusion that the substance of the transaction was intended to conceal that Obama was engaging in political money laundering to disguise the source of his income. Obama is exposed as just another corrupt African-American legislator in Illinois cutting deals for other African-Americans. Is it any wonder he became the protégé of sleazy Senator Emil Jones in the Illinois senate?
Why was Obama’s Blackwell deal ‘money laundering?’ The L. A. Times story is not clear on that point. Laundering was involved because Obama used ‘disclosure’ to conceal the source of his income while a public official. Obama’s game also exposes that in Illinois even good government types, such as Cynthia Canary, can be corrupted. Canary tries to whitewash something that she would strongly condemn if the practice had been engaged in by any other legislator. In other words, Obama has even managed to corrupt Canary and the integrity of her organization. It’s disgusting.
Obama’s ‘client,’ Robert Blackwell, Jr. was also an operative in the machinations of crooked Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, www.eki-consulting.com/APPS/EKIHP1.nsf/Content/BE14CC6D3CE402558 ..
The Times details how Obama was still ‘of counsel’ to his former law firm, but that he was not providing any services to that entity. Then Obama made a deal with Blackwell, and wanted to conceal that Blackwell was supporting him. So Obama ‘laundered’ the ‘legal fees’ by running them through the law firm and then issuing a list of the law firm’s clients-none of which had anything to do with Obama—to disguise the Blackwell money in a laundry list of hundreds of unrelated ‘clients.’ This was a classic case of money laundering and business fraud. Obama wanted to conceal the large sum he was receiving from Blackwell, so he concealed that Blackwell was the source of his income by pretending he was providing services to the law firm’s other clients. Utter fraud. ‘Barry O’ ain’t stupid, he’s slicky and tricky, and he’s a ticking time bomb for the Democratic Party.
Since the law firm had nothing to do with Blackwell, and was merely acting as a conduit for legal fees for Obama, this example shows that Obama was nothing but just another crooked Illinois politician.
Obama’s ‘law firm’ was also guilty of professional misconduct, because the lawyers knew that Obama had not provided services through the law firm, and was merely using the firm to obscure the fact that the major source of his personal income was one client on whose behalf Obama was later to advocate (there may have been earlier informal advocacy than the senate letter which has surfaced).
Time and time again, Obama’s law firm stands guilty of being exposed for sleazy professional tactics and gross conflicts of interest. Obama’s law firm was nothing more than a college of corruption for money laundering, conflicts of interests and other inappropriate professional behavior; and a collection of crooked lawyers that were stealing and concealing at every opportunity. Is it any wonder that honest lawyers get a bad name when crooked operatives such as Obama play games and use the law to conceal the source of their income?
Since the law firm had no relationship with Blackwell, running Obama’s fees through the firm was false and fraudulent. Since Obama had nothing to do with the law firm’s other clients, using a list of hundreds of unrelated clients to obscure that only one of those “clients” was paying him money was federal criminal mail fraud as well as a corruption of the ethics rules in Illinois. That Cynthia Canary tries to whitewash such blatant corruption shows that she has lost all sense of ethics and legitimacy when Obama is the one stealing the money. What’s her link?
Finally, the L. A. Times article leaves unanswered the big question: what legal work did Obama do to earn $112,000? He has never disclosed that he was working half-time for Blackwell, and there is no paper trail or track record of Obama having ever done any legal services to earn such a substantial sum. Before today, no one knew of the massive Blackwell-Obama connection. So where is the evidence of providing legal services to earn the money? I am going to be asking for an FBI investigation later this week.
Barry ‘Barack’ Obama: just one more crooked Illinois politician. He’s a disgrace to the good, honest hard working people of Illinois.
Four years ago I disclosed that Obama was a fraud artist. I didn’t know at the time just how true my conclusions were, or how expansive and extensive Obama’s corruption really was. A big thanks to the L. A. Times for providing the ‘smoking gun’ to document just how utterly sleazy Barack Obama has been in his professional life.
Obama should immediately withdraw as a presidential candidate. The ‘honest graft’ that Obama engineered with Robert Blackwell, Jr. is going to doom the Democratic Party in November. Any delegate, pledged, super or otherwise, who supports Obama for president after disclosure of the Barnhill/Blackwell caper, has a death wish for the Democrats in November.
[Note: this column has focused on the crass political corruption Obama engineered to conceal the source of his income, and the way ‘good government’ types such as Cynthia Canary are providing ‘cover’ for Obama’s corruption. The fact that Obama used his senate letterhead to gain money for his client is just one more angle of the same slimy story. Using his senate office for his client is self-evident; the use of a professional firm to launder and conceal that his major source of income was only one person, Blackwell, is not so obvious, which is why this column has concentrated on that aspect of the L. A. Times’ revelations. The ‘senate letterhead’ aspects, however, are no less important for what they reveal about Obama’s “play to play’ operations in Illinois politics.] Obama was just an African-American Tony Rezko. Is it any wonder the two were so close for decades?]
And is it any wonder that Barack Obama is now afraid to debate, given the latest sleaze cascading out of his past?

They let their law licenses lapse? (say that 3 times fast).
How did you find this out?

Thanks very much.

Myrddin, I don’t see any information regarding Michelle Obama laundering money. I’m immensely curious as to why Michelle’s law license was inactivated in 1993. She passed the bar in 1989 and by 1993 she was no longer licensed to practice.
There’s not much information out there about this at all. In fact, even Wikipedia is lacking the information and refers to her as a lawyer.
Pinging to Calpernia’s comment #52.
She was only at Sidley Austin until 1991. Then she latched onto Valerie Jarrett (huge Chicago Machine bigwig) who's now prominent on Obama’s campaign. By 1993, another job change to head up “Public Allies Chicago” and she's no longer licensed to practice law.
I'm totally intrigued.
