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.

Just heard on Fox that Palin is in Colorado and has started the attacks on Obama/Ayers, she is saying that Obama is paling around with terrorists and hitting hard and says the American people have the right to know! It is starting TODAY!!!!!
You would think that his white grandmother could verify if he was born in Hawaii.
But I can’t recall that we’ve ever heard anything from the grandmother, have we?
On the other hand- per Carl Cameron on FOX just a minute ago, Sarah talked at length today about Bill Ayers and his connections with Obama!!!
GO SARAH, GO!!!!!!!!!!
That is exactly what Berg has done and he as sited US Code that gives him the right to sue the FEC to enforce the law.
Maybe McCain should release his BC in a press conference and say for the sake of the country, if a problem were to exist, end this matter, Senator Obama and release yours in full.
This is the perfect picture of a very, very sick mentally deranged Madman... No one can dispute that fact. The unbridled arrogance, the uncontrolled disdain, the complete lack of control, the total lack of reality is perfectly represented in this abhorrant portrait of Obama HUSSEIN.
Let him see if he can get elected in that circumstance, even if it may be determined that he may be naturally born.
Maybe I’m not up to speed, but what’s the big deal? Here’s his birth certificate.
I’m now leaning toward the idea that his mother renounced her own citizenship, hence barry’s too, and granny is being kept out of the lime light because she was none too happy that her daughter did that.
Good luck with that..remember.. McCain doesn’t even want anyone to mention Obama’s middle name. (eye roll)
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
Uh, hate to burst your bubble, but Mr. Berg is no real Patriot. He is a 9/11 truther. He even sued George Bush.
Here are some things he said about Bush and Cheney.
“Bush and his cronies made 9/11 happen or let it happen. And, if they let it happen, then they made it happen. Either way, they are responsible; and more important, they have completely and unequivocally covered-it-up!” - Philip J. Berg
Don’t give any money to him.
GREAT post! Thank you.
Did you guys see this over at NRO:
More terrorists pals of Obama! BUSTED!!
Should have put a FLASHBACK notice on the post. From May.
Do you really think any state would issue a BC not having the indisputable fact of the hospital where the birth occurred?
At this point, for the state to divulge at which hospital it might occurred--if it's not already widely known--would only add to the pool of people who could be bribed and/or come forward to make potentially false representation, looking for their 15 minutes of fame, e.g., a former worker at such hospital.
In short, there's no "need to know" on the part of anyone other than the judge and parties to the lawsuit.
As has been said, "Whom they gods intend to destroy, they first make crazy!" If that's true, we certainly see that the antecedent has been set in motion.
In Obamanation book, the author seemed positive that little Barrack was born in Hawaii after his father deserted his mother. They had met and mated in Hawaii.
Far as I know the loving couple weren’t together again, so how and why would the Mom have gone to Kenya to give birth when her meal ticket (her parents) were in Hawaii?
She was pretty young then to be running around pregnant.
This is very interesting.
I’m going to research this some more.
Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Berg may be a crackpot, but the reactions of the Obama campaign and the DNC to his lawsuit sure looks fishy. A few kernals of truth hidden in this situation may in the end make popcorn. Wouldn’t that be interesting?
He’s Gonna CHANGE the World, He is the One.
But Frantzie called Berg a real patriot, even though I agree with what he is doing to Obama, I wouldn’t call him a real patriot by any means.
I am convinced that if Obama wins then we are indeed at the end times, I believe it really is all in God’s hands now.
Well, I think we would be rejoicing and the left would be crying and rioting. If that were the case, now I'm just guessing here...maybe they would ask Hill to step in and put her name on the ballot? It would be another unprecedented occurrence in our time.
If an American couple is on vacation in France, and the baby decides to arrive early, that child is an American citizen.
That’s true but I read somewhere the point of contention was that Obama’s mom at the time of his birth was 17(?) and therefore, was not qualified as an adult and that since he was not born in America, he was at the least a citizen of wherever she happened to be. He may in fact be a dual-citizen. There was mention of a law passed since then that supposedly closed that loophole (being below the age of consent) and now it’s true it doesn’t matter what the age of the mom is, if she is a citizen, the baby is a citizen. IF the underage thing is the case, it raises the possibility Obama is/was a dual-citizen, which is not allowed in regards to pursuing the presidency. That’s why I think this story still has legs.
Natural born has been defined by Congress. It can include those born abroad under some circumstances. Obama’s mother would have been to young to qualify, however.
The Congress can't legislatively define a part of the Constitution. For example, read City of Boerne v. Flores (1997)
So, the DNC IS willing to throw the Jewish Vote under the Bus....another good reason to NOT absentee vote! You just can’t be sure when he’s gonna throw your vote under the bus (Black Panthers take note).
