Skip to comments.DNC steps in to silence lawsuit over Obama birth certificate
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.

The guy is a complete fraud on so many levels. There is the fake one on his own site- then there’s the factcheck piece about it - photographed from strange angles and that whole article just seems...off.
It seems likely he was born in Hawaii- but the whole birth certificate mystery is confusing. It also seems he was a dual citizen with Indonesia at one time- and the Kenya connection is weird too.
He’s scared me, really scared me, since his acceptance speech in Iowa.
Please cite a section of the Consitution which you believe gives Congress the power to create a "Federal Elections Commission" with authority over the manner in which States chuse Electors for President and Vice President of the United States.
"Running for President" is an activity which is invisible to the Constitution. Only AFTER the chusing of the Electors, and the transmission of their votes (the only actual votes which will be cast for Obama), could the courts become involved.
WOOHOO!! It’s a start!!
LOL...now we know why the NYSLIMES came out with the cover-up article yesterday. Question...who in McCain’s camp is giving info to the NYT on MCCain’s game plan of Sarah adding this info to her speech today?
“Hence, the Times piece on Ayers today. They know the fight is on.”
BINGO! Who told the NYT though? That is what we need to find out. McCain has a mole it would appear.
Let’s look at this logically. Put yourself in the same situation. If you were running for President and you were being challenged on whether or not you were a natural born citizen, and there were lawsuits out there trying to prove you weren’t, wouldn’t you simply produce your Birth Cert. to close down the whole issue? I know I would. I would shut it down in 2 minutes.
The fact that Obama has not done this is compelling evidence that he is not, in fact, a natural born citizen. I think Berg is on to something here.
This story is continues to be veeery interesting. Wouldn’t you think that the Obama campaign would produce a valid birth certificate to end this continuing saga once and for all? I am going to file this latest information under things that make you go, “Hmm . . . .”
It doesnt matter where he was born. If his mother is American he is an American.
Not so, according to the law (The Immigration & Nationality Act of 1952, as amended, to be exact).
Someone born overseas with one parent who is a US-citizen is, by law, himself a US citizen at birth IF AND ONLY IF the citizen-parent spent 10 years in the US over the age of 14. (That was later changed to 5 years in the US over the age of 14, but that change took effect decades after Obama was born, and does not help him).
IINM, Obama’s mother was 18 or 19 when he was born. Thus, if he was born outside the US (which includes US-territories, possessions, etc.), then he was not a citizen at birth, and thus, is not a “natural-born US citizen” per the requirements of the Constitution.
Regarding the version of the Obama document shown, is it me or do all the print features seem to have been poorly pasted over the background hatch markings? If it had actually been printed on the paper, I would expect to see the hatching between the letters where the laser print did not hit. Instead, there is a corona of white.
There is great doubt as to the authenticity of the BC that was posted by the 0bambi campaign:
Personally, I agree that it is a crude fake and the fact that BHO is stonewalling reinforces my belief in the Berg lawsuit.
That is NOT his birth certificate (and it also may be an altered document according to experts).
A certification of birth is not the same thing, and has much less information that a birth certificate, samples of which are posted earlier in this thread. That is similar to what we have in PA which is a “certification of birth registration” which simply affirms that your birth was registered in the state.
From what I gather there are two issues: NObama’s father was not a US citizen, giving NObama dual nationality. And members of NObama’s family in Kenya (including his grandmother) say he was actually born there and that his mother later came to Hawaii to register his birth.
I’ve wondered that.
Sarah Palin, using some of her strongest language to date to question the character of the Democratic presidential nominee, accused Barack Obama of “palling around with terrorists” Saturday at a closed fundraiser in Colorado.
She was referencing a front-page story in The New York Times that examined Obama’s ties to Bill Ayers, a founder of the 1960s radical group The Weather Underground.
The group took credit for bombings, including nonfatal explosions at the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol four decades ago.
“Our opponent, though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect — imperfect enough that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country,” Palin said. “Americans need to know this. ... I think, okay we gotta get the word out. This is in fairness to the electorate we gotta start telling people what the other side represents.”
Obama served on a charity board with Ayers in Chicago and has denounced his past activities.
Definition of a Constitutional Crisis.
Look at google already....lol
