DNC steps in to silence lawsuit over Obama birth certificate
World Net Daily ^ | October 4, 2008 | Drew Zahn

Posted on 10/04/2008 9:16:33 AM PDT by Amityschild

The man suing Sen. Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee for proof of Obama's American citizenship is outraged that his own party – rather than just providing the birth certificate he seeks – would step in to silence him by filing a motion to dismiss his lawsuit.

As WND reported, prominent Pennsylvania Democrat and attorney Philip J. Berg filed suit in U.S. District Court two months ago claiming Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen and therefore not eligible to be elected president. Berg has since challenged Obama publicly that if the candidate will simply produce authorized proof of citizenship, he'll drop the suit.

Berg told WND the longer the DNC tries to ignore his lawsuit or make it go away – instead of just providing the documents – the more convinced he is that his accusations are correct.

No doubt about it now, Obama is not a US born citizen. Anyone can easily get a birth certificate.

There are so many questionable issues about 0bama. None will come to light before November 4. The DNC is stonewalling anything that might be legally troubling. They just want him elected. Then when all the facts about his background come to light they will just say....never mind, he's already been elected so just go away. Remember Gregoire in Washington? So many bogus ballots in the 3rd recount but they immediately swore her in and that was that.

Whose job is it to determine whether or not a candidate meets the constitutional test? FEC?

I guess you don't need to be a citizen to run for President, only to BE President.

If Obama is elected and not a citizen then Biden would be President...I wonder if he's chosen his VP yet.

Berg could raise a significant amount of money if he made an announcement that $100,000 to be given to the first person with proof that Obama was born in Kenya. Even if people have been paid off in Hawaii and Kenya, someone would come forward. Or, make it a million dollars. I would certainly be one of 100,000 Americans who would give 10 bucks.

Weirder and weirder.

If the Nincompoop has got a birth certificate and has shown it on and to a web-site, why doesn’t he show it to the court, and has this whole business closed down once and for all?

There is only two conclusions; either he hasn’t got proof of his birth in Hawaii and his US citizenship in which case he is not eligible to be elected president. Or he has got a birth certificate (or proof of birth), in which case he shows himself totally inept in handling this case. An inaptitude that really should bar him from any executive national office.

Can you imagine it, Obama wins the presidency before the suit is heard and tried, the trial comes, the court sides with Berg and demands proof of Obama’s claim’s to be a naturalized US citizen. Obama challenges the decision, an Appeals Court hears the case and refuses to overturn the lower court’s ruling. Obama then quickly appeals to the SCOTUS, the trial is expedited, and the ruling is 6 to 3 (I think Breyer would side with the majority) that Obama must prove his claims. Obama presents completely fraudulent docs, his election is nullified and Biden becomes president, or does he? Would Biden assume the presidency, I don’t know Constitutional law.

I doubt it.

The Electoral College will likely declare McCain President, if Obama is not a citizen.

All BHO has to do is show a birth certificate showing he was born on sovereign US territory. Instead, BHO and the DNC “lawyers up”. That tells me right there that something is amiss.

I admit, I found this charge rather suspect...but now that the DNC has stepped in and the MSM are not investigating...AND Obama won’t provide the documentation...me thinks it may be true.

Is that sarcasm? I didn’t think they liked WND. Or maybe that is just some posters here. They ran the story on the Palestinian brothers contributing to Obama and uncovered that they had paid for tee shirts. WND is okay in my book.

I've been pretty skeptical from the start, but ffs all Obama has to do is produce an actual birth certificate to shut everyone up but yet he doesn't.

Easiest thing in the world to make go away but instead he hides behind the CAIR lawyer and the DNC tries to shut people up.

By reaction I'm pretty much convinced the guy can't prove he's a natural born citizen, and possibly not even a citizen at all.

I wish the media outlets would showcase this case and the updates to it more. Even Fox never mentions it is ongoing, from what I can tell.

I MIGHT give them some credit if the more fair or conservative outlets felt they should not report an allegation, waiting until there is more evidence (instead of LACK of it) perhaps, but why would there be a problem reporting a lawsuit filed by such a prominent attorney?

We hear of allegations and upcoming lawsuits all the time for everything else. Why not this one?

"They just want him elected."

It doesn't matter. The truth is the truth. If he's elected, it doesn't stop the lawsuit or the quest for the truth. If it comes out after he's elected that he was ineligible, he will be imprisoned (having illegally obtained classified information from the executive branch of our government) and anything he enacted would have to be removed.

His father was a radical, fundamentalist Muslim and I've maintained all along that his birth name parallels his half-brother's. His legit BC will show that his name is:

Barack (or even "Baraq")
Hussein
Mohammed
Obama

And the DNC knows that very few in the USA will vote for someone with that name.

I would think that it would be up to the election apparatus in each state (i.e the secretary of state in each state) but I could be wrong. LOL

As I've said before we will probably find out that there is "No controlling Legal Authority". Hey, it worked for Al Gore didn't it.

You don't really think the DNC or the courts are going to disclose his ineligibility before the election do you?

Good point. It doesn’t matter where he was born. If his mother is American he is an American.

Did she renounce her citizenship? Methinks so.

I don’t think he is ineligible. however, I do believe the birth certificate would show something really embarrassing, and might even be a deal changer for some people.

just my opinion.

An interesting question. NObody's ever had to answer it before because nobody's ever had to ask. baraq is soooo special that way. Heck, you've gotta have a birth certificate just to be in kindergarten or Little League. But not to be President of the US? That is upside down!

If we had a free press, THEY'D be making a daily issue of it; but we don't, so they aren't; instead, they're splitting hairs about Sarah and Todd Palin's fishing licenses. Beam me up!

I’ll bet somewhere on Obama there’s the Mark of The Beast, but I don’t put much stock in them getting any leverage on his birth certificate.

Agreed. I’ve always thought this was a bunch of nonsense, but why wouldn’t Obama just have a certified copy of his birth certificate reviewed by the judge?

Actually, I believe it isn’t that simple. If he was born in a foreign country, he almost certainly would not be qualified to run for President.

Hey Moose, I can do you one better.

Let say there’s a tie in the electoral college (269-269) and Obama gets the Prez, but the senate (via tie breaker) taps SARAH for the Veep.

Obama loses his case in the courts, gets rejected, boards the executive helicopter, gives the “defiant fist” and SARAH takes over!!!

How deliciously ironic....would make a great novel at least.

YEs it does. You must be a natural born citizen to be a U.S. President. So stated in the constitution.

Well he did say he “has a funny name” and “doesn't look like the other guys on the money”. I don't think he has a real BC because he was not born in Hawaii IMO.

Slowbama fans will vote for him no matter what. But we still need to find out where he was born. And also he claims Barrack Hussain is Kenyan, it is NOT they are both Arabic/Muslim type names. I know it's a little thing, but his name has been changed from Barry Slobish (sic)?, and he seems to be fibbing about it,(the root of the names,e.g. Kenyon versus Arabic/Muslim. WHY?

Could a lawsuit be launched to force a federal agency to verify Obama's authenticy and provide the proof to the public?

Sue the FEC, the National Security Agency, the CIA, and the Justice department asking a judge to determine which of them have responsibility to enfoce that section of the constitution and to demand that they enforce it.
