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.

If Berg can back up his claims with hard facts, why not put a TV ad out,buy a full-page ad in the paper,scream it from the rooftops? Something’s not right here,no matter how you look at it.
The truth is the truth
Since when did the Dems let a little thing like the TRUTH get in their way?
Nobody is tasked with that. There is no law requiring the candidates to show any documentation to any federal, state, or local agency.
> If Obama is elected and not a citizen then Biden would be President...
Somehow, I think I would prefer Biden to Obama. Some choice, an idiot or something that is pure evil.
and Rossi gave up as I recall...
Not at all, i have heard rush, sean, laura & tgo all reference them as a source.
You may well be right. Maybe that's the most likely explanation of this affair. However, that does not give him the right to fake documents, or withholding relevant documentation. Whatever would the leftist MSM have said if Nixon had erased his middle name? Oh...they even made a film about it, didn't they?
There is a third conclusion: he doesn't do it because he doesn't have to.
I hope this guy doesn’t give up hope.
If your amazing tale comes to pass then Biden would be the president and would appoint a vice-president with the approval of both houses of Congress.
I think you have nailed it.
Mohammed is likely part of his birth name.
someone went to Kenya and is looking for that BC..in fact, it was in Corsi’s book.
Are you saying a President has to be a natural born American citizen, but he doesn’t have to prove it? Oh, please don’t tell us that the citizenship qualification is only based on an honor system.
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. Nothing will challenge the Communist Party (formally known as Democrats). Obama will finish converting America.
Taking a chance that the judge will not order him to do so.
OTOH look at the election financing scandal of Mrs Clinton. What ever happened to that one? Did the media cover it? Where is Doug?
I just moved to Oregon from Ohio, and to get my Oregon driver’s license, I had to prove my identity by showing a official copy of my birth certificate, among other things.
One would think that a little bit more scrutiny would be required in order to determine basic eligibility to be President.
The Senate isn't tied. And besides, the Senate casting the vote would be the one sworn in a few weeks before inauguration day. If polls hold true there will be more Democrats in it then than there are now.
The electoral college votes AFTER the election, and it’s decision is reviewable by SCOTUS.
Line 3 (Citizenship) Indonesia
Line 4 (Religion) Islam
The Constitution? when was the last time most courts followed that though? back before the switch in time that saved nine I suppose.... another socialist democrat screwing up the court system even then
besides... the Left loves their “selected not elected” BS.... I can only imagine the backlash if it was true Obama isn’t naturally born and gets thrown out
***Would Biden assume the presidency, I dont know Constitutional law.***
Don’t worry, Obama doesn’t either.
And with the war on terror...it is essential our president is thoroughly vetted in the interests of the US.
“Why not just produce the birth certificate? Wouldnt that be waaaay cheaper?”
Yes, which means there really might be something to this. There is no other remotely reasonable reason for them to sandbag and obsfucate on this way.
Pretty much, yeah. What proof did Bush or Kerry or Gore or any prior president provide?
Oh, please dont tell us that the citizenship qualification is only based on an honor system.
Again, pretty much, yeah. There is nothing in the law requiring a candidate present his or her credentials to any agency prior to running.
OK, maybe that is it...
Obama knows the certificate posted on his website is a forgery. That’s why he doesn’t simply point to it and end the law suit. I think posting a forged certificate constitutes a fraud. So who will prosecute him for it?
Why no viral video on this topic?
That will be the united State's new Black Friday.
That is another whole new legal question in itself, because then the Hussein-boy is the one who selected Biden without have any authority to do so???
Motion after motion after motion has been filed by David Kendall. We are hoping to finally get people under oath in 2009.
Should be easy to provide the birth certificate ?
Unless it is from Kenya...?
No Clinton would be President because she came in 2nd in the Dem primary...
The DNC and CAIR getting involved means he was not born in the USA. They are concerned. They would be ignoring this and hoping it would fade away if it was not serious. Mr. Berg is a real patriot.
Hawaii can print off a real copy if it exists. Obama has provided crude forgeries of HI birth certificates.
I hope Mr. Berg can get to the truth fast but we must donate and volunteer to help McCain-PALIN.
GOP get Sarah & Todd to WS, MN and MI. McCain is +1 or tied in MN and WS. Sarah can win all three states plus Iowa, lock down Ohio and win PA.
Donate and volunteer for McCain-Palin folks. If you have a few bucks donate to Mr. Berg too.
This is beyond ridiculous. Why won't Barack Hussein Obama show that he has the simple prerequisites to serve as President of the United States?
Now that he has admitted that he was a Kenyan citizen, I think it is clear that he must clarify his U.S. citizenship status. He must now provide his hospital birth records, his birth certificate, and paperwork about his sojourn in Indonesia showing his exact visa or citizenship status there.
Instead, he ups the ante by now involving the DNC and a lawyer most prominent for his work for CAIR?
Why won't Senator Obama simply show that he is even eligible to serve as our president? It is only 30 days to the election; early voting and absentee voting have already started.
Simply show the American people that he is even eligible to serve. It's not as if this is a difficult task. If Mr. Obama cannot even do such a simple act for his fellow Americans, how can he ask us to trust him to do far more arduous tasks as president of our nation?
Prior to running, you are correct. HOWEVER, before the Chief Justice of the SCOTUS can administer the oath of office, there must be some evidence required, musn’t there? How else do you comply with the Constitution?
Thanks for the response. I really was wondering.
It sounds like a candidate does not have to PROVE citizenship. However, if someone else proves he is NOT a natural born citizen, does that count for disqualification?
Also, per your thoughts, what standard of proof would it take someone else to prove his is not a natural born citizen to the point of disqualifying him for the Presidency?
McCain plans fiercer strategy against Obama
“We’re going to get a little tougher,” a senior Republican operative said, indicating that a fresh batch of television ads is coming. “We’ve got to question this guy’s associations. Very soon....”
Is that really true? Even in the case of a fraudulent campaign? I would think the both of them would be kicked out...and perhaps another election? Just allowing Biden to be pres doesnt sound right in that circumstance.
In fact, if your attorney fails to make the motion, you should probably sue him or her for malpractice.
That this is allowed to happen, along with all the other strong armed un-American situations lately, like a firmly biased MSM, passage of a crippling bailout, an open border policy, intent to give amnesty to illegals is proof to me that we are no longer a law abiding Republic.
The Communist Party, misnomered the Democrat Party, has taken us over. It must be a done deal. Where is the Republican Party in all of this mess? Gone with the wind!
I’m not a lawyer but have a question.
If he is elected (God forbid) and then it is found out he is not eligible, what happens then?
Good idea. No one has been paid off in HI - yet.
Obama provided a recent copy from HI that was a crude fraud. See YouTube for an analysis where a recent copy from a Hawaii born citizen provided their copy versus the creude fake Obama’s campaign provided. Obama’s is a fake.
Bout time some one else picked this up.
If Berg can back up his claims with hard facts, why not put a TV ad out,buy a full-page ad in the paper,scream it from the rooftops? Somethings not right here,no matter how you look at it.
Not everyone has deep pockets FRiend.
