Skip to comments.Berg Confident Obama & DNC Motion To Dismiss Will Be Defeated
Posted on 10/03/2008 1:15:57 PM PDT by Blood of Tyrants
(Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania 09/29/08) - Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obamas lack of qualifications to serve as President of the United States, announced today that he filed his Opposition and Brief to Obama and Democratic National Committee [DNC] Joint Motion to Dismiss in the case of Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.
Berg feels confident that he has Standing and the Court will allow the case to go forward. Our response was due in 14 days, but the Court requested our answer by Monday, September 29, 2008 and we complied. In our response we set forth sufficient reasons that I have Standing to bring this lawsuit. Furthermore, I set forth additional reasons that indicate Obama does not meet the qualifications for President of the United States and Obama should be removed from the ballot and held accountable.
Because Obama is hiding something important.
I actually think it's more along the lines of "because he can't."
BETWEEN THE ILLEGAL DONATIONS AND THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE ISSUE
MAYBE TIME TO FREEP THE FEC

I'm no lawyer, but this seems like a no-brainer to me. Any US citizen has "standing" to ensure the next President of the United States meets the most basic qualifications.
“To the people who say this is a non-issue: Why doesn’t Obama simply turn over the documents and make Berg look like a fool?”
Because when you are fighting a fool you don’t give them an audience or a venue.
Name ONE short legal case!
Once a court case gets going, they can last for decades.
This man does not have standing.
All 0bama has to do is produce the real, original documents and this all goes away before the next news cycle at sunrise.
It was pretty smart to file a lawsuit, since they were forced to issue a ‘motion to dismiss’ when it would be easier to produce the document if they had the document.
Who does have standing? How else do the people of this country if but through the courts go about determining if a given candidate is constitutionally qualified to be president since the media obviously won't do their job.
It seems cut and dry. How come he won’t prove himself?
Don’t we, as U.S. citizens, have the right to DEMAND the proof that Barack Obama meets the qualifications? If a court dismisses it, don’t we still have the right to know?
Maybe I need to get out the Constitution and look this up myself, but who exactly oversees and appproves that a candidate meets qualifications?
We ALL need to write to or call the election commission and demand that this be resolved immediately.
My kids need an original, valid birth certificate to play township soccer, for goodness’ sake! Is it really possible that the election commission doesn’t require this in order to run for president?
I agree with Azzurri—every citizen would be hurt if Obama truly has no right to be President! We are supposed to be a nation of laws under the Constitution.
This just in — confirmed!.

IT IS SO ORDERED
The Obama File
PING!!! to post #15
First link no work.
I checked PACER (online access to the filing in civil and criminal cases), and there was no order from the Court as of this morning.
This is the text of the proposed order for the judge, provided by Berg. It has not been signed by the judge.
Thanks I just dropped an email to FEC
“Can you tell me why a child must have a birth certificate to enter school or play sports and yet Obama is not requested by the FEC to provide an original certificate to run for President of the US? It didnt seem such an issue until one sees the length he will go to in order to fight Bergs suit to have it released. What is being hidden here? Americans hold the FEC responsible to see that the Constitutional requirements are met and that has not been done. Every American will be seriously hurt by this not being settled before there is a Constitutional crisis. This leaves a black mark on the FEC and a cloud over this election. Please address this issue.”
Can you post the e mail address to the FEC so many of us Freepers can also send e mails? Let’s DEMAND they adhere by their own standards and rules.
If I were the California Secretary of State, I would remove Obama’s name from the ballot unless he could prove his qualifications. i believe any State government could challenge his candidacy without a court case. After all, they can determine any candidates qualification to be on the ballot.
Oh. Saw it on ‘Obama File’ when checking ‘The lastest news’ section. Thought it official. Sorry, guys.
I used the one posted by Mousel on this thread. They should get swamped on this issue. Some government department should do their job since Congress doesn’t—it would be refreshing to get what we pay for as taxpayers once.
I just called the FEC and demanded as a legal American citizen that the Obama campaign release official copies of birth documentation. Also said in the message that the FEC is responsible to check the validity of a presidential candidate. If it is proved Obama is unqualified then the FEC will be held accountable. Call and demand the FEC to abide by its own standards!
There has to be at least one state out there willing to take such an action if Obama continues to stonewall ponying up something as basic as a birth certificate. If he's so willing to obfuscate like this now can you imagine what he'd be like as president?
Well, it WAS on the Obama File. Now it’s gone.
What’s the address? I’ll write too.
A lawyer who says he knows what will happen to a motion is a fool.
A number of attorney Generals of a number of states are saying they will not allow Nobama’s name on the ballots until he has proven his status as per the Constitution.
I called the FEC. They said that it wasn’t their job to determine the eligibility of presidential candidates.
By dragging it out, they are giving him credibility.
There is no clar answer to that question. I called the FEC and they said it was the job of “Congress” to validate the electoral college. With a majority of ‘Rats in Congress, is there any doubt that they would completely ignore any and all evidence that Obama is not constitutionally ineligible to be president? Therefore it falls on the shoulders of the people like Mr. Berg to take it to the courts and force the issue. I hope the judge comes to a swift decision.
That isn’t a signed copy. It is worthless.
Really? Got a link?
See my post 33.
Too bad it isn’t class action to get more attention with 1000 or so names.
Which States’ Attorney Generals are not going to allow Obama on the ballot asa presidential nominee unless he proves his citizenship in accordance with the constitution?
Since the FEC told you it wasn’t their job to determine the eligibility of presidential candidates, then who is responsible to do that. Each state attorney general??
There is no body that is tasked with determining the eligibility of the candidates for president. It is up to each state to determine that,I guess.
“””Which States Attorney Generals are not going to allow Obama on the ballot asa presidential nominee unless he proves his citizenship in accordance with the constitution?””
A state that is fire-engine red and well armed. Oklahoma, Alabama, Alaska
RUSH IS DISCUSSING THE Mysterious BIRTH CERTIFICATE issue right now.
Kenya, Berg, granny, dual-citizenship, etc. all mentioned.
Cats out of the bag.........
