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.

You are right on!!!! This is what the Lord has been showing me too. I say that not loosely but with SERIOUS backing of scripture. I also say it with absolute peace in my heart because ultimately, in the end, my KING is victorious!!!!
Quite obvious even if Osama Obama was born in Hawaii as he claims (which I don’t believe), that citizenship was given up by his mother when an INDONESIAN citizen adopted him. He’s not a US citizen, naturalized or otherwise.
I agree with your premise. he was born in the U.S. but there is something on the birth certificate they don't want us to see.
Birth Abroad to One Citizen and One Alien Parent in Wedlock: A child born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent acquires U.S. citizenship at birth under Section 301(g) INA provided the citizen parent was physically present in the U.S. for the time period required by the law applicable at the time of the child’s birth. (For birth on or after November 14, 1986, a period of five years physical presence, two after the age of fourteen is required. For birth between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, a period of ten years, five after the age of fourteen are required for physical presence in the U.S. to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child.
The birth of a child abroad to U.S. citizen parent(s) should be reported as soon as possible to the nearest American consular office for the purpose of establishing an official record of the child’s claim to U.S. citizenship at birth. The official record is in the form of a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America. This document, referred to as the Consular Report of Birth or FS-240, is considered a basic United States citizenship document. An original FS-240 is furnished to the parent(s) at the time the registration is approved.
REPORTING THE BIRTH
A Consular Report of Birth can be prepared only at an American consular office overseas while the child is under the age of 18. Usually, in order to establish the childs citizenship under the appropriate provisions of U.S. law, the following documents must be submitted:
(1) an official record of the childs foreign birth;
(2) evidence of the parent(s) U.S. citizenship (e.g., a certified birth certificate, current U.S.
passport, or Certificate of Naturalization or Citizenship);
(3) evidence of the parents marriage, if applicable; and
(4) affidavits of parent(s) residence and physical presence in the United States.
In certain cases, it may be necessary to submit additional documents, including affidavits of paternity and support, divorce decrees from prior marriages, or medical reports of blood compatibility. All evidentiary documents should be certified as true copies of the originals by the registrar of the office wherein each document was issued. A service fee of $65 is prescribed under the provisions of Title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 22.1, item 9, for a Consular Report of Birth.
Isn’t it GREAT when the LIEberal DUmocrats eat their own!
Naturalized isn't enough, the Constitution specifies one must be a "natural-born" citizen.
Assume ... nahhh ... He will CROWN HIMSELF.
“Whose job is it to determine whether or not a candidate meets the constitutional test?...”
It appears to be the responsibility of Congress - both the Senate and House of Representatives.
Go to this link for the following explanation:
Arguments concerning qualifications or lack thereof can be laid before the voting public before the election and, once the election is over, can be raised as objections as the electoral votes are counted in Congress.
Federal legislation further details the process for counting electoral votes in Congress ..
The statute provides a mechanism for objections then to be registered and resolved: [e]very objection shall be made in writing, and shall state clearly and concisely, and without argument, the ground thereof, and shall be signed by at least one Senator and one Member of the House of Representatives before the same shall be received. When all objections so made . . . shall have been received and read, the Senate shall thereupon withdraw, and such objections shall be submitted to the Senate for its decision; and the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall, in like manner, submit such objections to the House of Representatives for its decision.
The Twentieth Amendment further provides, if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified
It is clear that mechanisms exist under the Twelfth Amendment and 3 U.S.C. 15 for any challenge to any candidate to be ventilated when electoral votes are counted, and that the Twentieth Amendment provides guidance regarding how to proceed if a president elect shall have failed to qualify.
My comment: this is not encouraging. Our way out of this mess may require that Republicans take back the House and the Senate.
That Barry clearly has allegiances to one or more countries other than the US, be it Indonesia and/or Kenya, is contrary to the spirit--if not the letter--of the Constitutional requirement to be a natural born US citizen to be our President.
As Barry has admitted to falsifying his bar exam application and now we see incontrovertible evidence that his publicly-submitted BC was a fake, one surely doesn't have to cross any rickety bridge to see that 0bambi's experienced at deceit through documents. Why the @#&$%&! does anyone get a "do over" in such a situation, irrespective of an adjudication of where he was born or whether he's is a naturally-born US citizen???!?!?!
Didn’t The One say in his “auto biography” that he ran across some old photographs and his birth certificate in his grandma’s attic, when he was about fifteen?
Sounds like he knew this would be a problem and was creating a legend for himself, like the Soviet spy masters did for their sleeper agents.
The scenario I created was of two American parents. Clearly, Obama’s dad was Kenyan (unless Jesse Jackson managed to nail her, also).
Sounding like a cross between Adolph Hilter, and Elmer Fudd...
Imagine a partisan affirmation for Obama's election despite obvious non-qualification! I would bet on two years of riots on the streets of every city, or until such time 0bambi were removed through impeachment! Out of fear for their very lives, I don't think a sufficient number of dhimmicRats would take it upon themselves to foist that Obamanation upon the country, but it wouldn't be the first time we've been disappointed in dhimmicrats, eh?
If the House Dhimms threw such back in our face, the legal challenges would be immediate and plentiful. The USSC would be forced to take up with issue within weeks, probably before Obambi ever took office. He would never be administered the Oath of office, and we'd have Biden for four years. He might get Hillary as his VP, in which case, he'd be spending so much time watching his back that every little of substance could get done.
With the dhims having defrauded the American public under this scenario, the public would allow very little Biden-Clinton-dhimCongress work to be enacted, under threat of power removal. They'd be scared into paralysis, hoping to be allowed to stay on. Alas, that won't restore their power to them after the 2010 midterm.
At the midterm election, the house and Senate would turn overwhelmingly Republican, and in 2012, the Palin/Jindal ticket would win by a landslide.
And God will continue to work in mysterious ways. That's assured!
I can see it now... “it’s just sex” becomes “its just birth”
Good thought, but means nothing. If Obama is President the first thing the RATS and he will do is issue an executive order exempting him that the President does not have to be a US Citizen.Fortunately executive orders don't negate constitutional amendments.
