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.

"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. "

It's beginning to smell like something in a woodpile.

"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)"

Maybe he can share a cell with O. J. Simpson.

It was pointed out in that you tube video that the father’s race would not have been listed as African in 1963. It would have said Negro. Anyone know about that?

My baby brother was born in Los Angeles in 1961, and pretty darn sure that it says "negro" on his BC for both parents (just like everyone else in the family).

Because one of those name may actually be MOHAMED???

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.

We need help from Buckhead (Buckweed?) to make sure the printed fonts were available in 1961???

If Obama is elected and not a citizen then Biden would be President...


Are you certain of this?? If the people vote for Obama but is ruled ineligible, the person with the 2nd most votes should get the Presidency IMO, not the VP.

Looks like a constitutional crisis to me.

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


This is wrong.. his mother was not old enough to qualify for this privelage. The father was a non-US citizen. If born outside the country, Barack would not have US Citizenship.

“However primary responsibility for vetting a candidate for ballot access lies with the states. Nowadays states have a minimal sense of self-soveriegnity so don’t expect any action there either!”

If just one state would decide that he does not qualify as he is not a natural born citizen, would that create enough of a controversy between the states to set up original jurisdiction with the Supremes?

Perhaps proof of citizenship was shown when they served in the military?

Obama would have shown some proof of citizenship when he applied for a passport.

Since the electors are not bound to any cnadidate persumeably they could vote for anyone eligible, including HIllary.

The electors are electors in the first place because they're supporters of their candidate. I can't see Obama's electors suddenly voting for Clinton.

Because he would be the candidate for the Presidency with the most votes after Zero is disgualified. His electors would be concelled.

If Obama is disqualified then Biden would be the candidate with the most electoral votes.

There was no question as to their citizenship. Domestic birth, both parents citizens with long traditions easily verifiable.

But have you seen their birth certificates?

Why won’t Zero just produce the document? Why don’t you want him to?

Because legally he isn't required to and I have this thing about following the law.

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.

If she did, the State Department will never release that information. Read "Blacklisted by History," by M. Stanton Evans, to see how Communists and fellow-travelers infiltrated the State Department during our wartime alliance with the Soviet Union. They built a culture that continues to this day.

Where, oh where are the Bernsteins and Woodwards of the 21st century?

Right where they've always been - trying to dig up dirt on Republicans, while ignoring Democrats. Back in summer of 92, the marina manager where I took a sailing class was buds with someone over at the Washington Post, and said that they had a story that would blow Clinton's candidacy out of the water, but they weren't going to run it because they wanted him to win.

There is something odd here. A birth certificate would be simple to produce in this case. It should made public for every candidate for president and vice president as a routine matter.

“Where, oh where are the Bernsteins and Woodwards of the 21st century? “

First, ask yourself what the Watergate break in was about - was it just a few guys out for a late night walk?

Why were they risking Federal time?

Do you have your answer?

The real reason there was a break in to the DNC HQ was twofold:

1) Obtain proof that the Teamsters Union was laundering money through the DNC,

2) Obtain proof that John Dean's wife was running a prostitution ring from the DNC HQ.

The Watergate burglars GOT THIS PROOF. If Bernstein and Woodward had not done their hack political job on the Republicans today's political climate would be MUCH different. They are partisan hacks.

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?

It is sooooo interesting to see the rats eating other rats, and our side ("pubbies") can just stay out of the kitchen or on the sideline, while the dims are making incredible fools of themselves!

If Mr. Berg wins this one, it would have a very negative result on the trustworthy of the democRATic party years to come!!

It truly is popcorn times!!!

I think the big question at that link is, the dual citizenship? The time line? Where was he born? When did he live in Kenya? When did he live in Indonesia? Having been a citizen of Indonesia, did he EVER swear an Oath of Allegiance to the USA when he reached age 21?

I think the foreign citizenship and not having taken the Oath of Allegiance, may be his 'problem'.

Yes, if he assume the office of the presidency, but that is NOT the case here IF he is deemed a total fraud of eligible to assume the position. Biden is NOT qualified either???

The founders’ intention was that POTUS be possesssed of UNDIVIDED LOYALTY to the United States, hence the natural born citizenship aspect. But Hussein has demonstrated in all of his words, writings, actions, Logan Act violations, associations and collaborations with anti-American figures over the years, that he is anything BUT loyal to America.

UNDIVIDED LOYALTY to America, hmmmm???

“Senator Barack Obama is absent from the list of dignitaries with whom Prime Minister Raila Odinga is scheduled to confer during his current visit to Washington.

The Kenyan-American presidential candidate may wish to avoid meeting with the PM due to concerns that such contact would be used to stoke rumours intended to wound Senator Obama politically.”

The Website “I Perceive” (http://iperceive.net/barack-obama-kenyan-jihadi/#more-225) printed the following:

“Who is Odinga and why should Americans care about his close ties to Barack Obama? Of greatest concern to Americans should be what Obama’s moves in Kenya say about his likely willingness to encourage global jihad. We’re not talking here about merely pulling troops out of Iraq. This guy, Obama, campaigned for his jihadi cousin, Odinga, in 2006 as Kenya was preparing for the vote in 2007.

In his failed bid to topple the current Kenyan president, Odinga allegedly entered the written agreement linked below with Sheikh Abdullahi Abdi. In it, Odinga agreed, among other things, to make Islamic Sharia law the law of Kenya if the Sheikh would deliver the votes to put Odinga over the top.”

Silence the birth certificate lawsuit? That is very easy for a liberal socialist, just buy off the liberally appointed Federal Judge, or just go judge shopping until they find a friendly judge who's supports Obama for the next socialist president and have him or her dismiss the suit against the messiah Obama.

I think I have read somewhere that this judge is a clintoooon appointed!!!

Any more questions, hmmm???

I think you're right. At the least dual citizenship which makes him ineligible. I doubt he ever renounced Indonesian citizenship and swore to American citizenship at age 18 or older.

It’s been a long time since I studied this, but if my memory is right, here is how I interpreted the scenario which I tthink was based on what do do when the vote is a tie? The vote is determined by the Electoral College, but with each state getting one vote. There is not a formula based on the state’s population and each state has the same vote. If that were the scenario, Red wins.
