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.

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.

Whose job is it to determine whether or not a candidate meets the constitutional test? FEC?

Nobody is tasked with that. There is no law requiring the candidates to show any documentation to any federal, state, or local agency.

Somehow, I think I would prefer Biden to Obama. Some choice, an idiot or something that is pure evil.

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 only two conclusions; either he hasn’t got proof of his birth in Hawaii and his US citizenship in which case he is not eligible to be elected president. Or he has got a birth certificate (or proof of birth), in which case he shows himself totally inept in handling this case. An inaptitude that really should bar him from any executive national office.

There is a third conclusion: he doesn't do it because he doesn't have to.

Can you imagine it, Obama wins the presidency before the suit is heard and tried, the trial comes, the court sides with Berg and demands proof of Obama’s claim’s to be a naturalized US citizen. Obama challenges the decision, an Appeals Court hears the case and refuses to overturn the lower court’s ruling. Obama then quickly appeals to the SCOTUS, the trial is expedited, and the ruling is 6 to 3 (I think Breyer would side with the majority) that Obama must prove his claims. Obama presents completely fraudulent docs, his election is nullified and Biden becomes president, or does he? Would Biden assume the presidency, I don’t know Constitutional law.

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.

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.

Let say there’s a tie in the electoral college (269-269) and Obama gets the Prez, but the senate (via tie breaker) taps SARAH for the Veep.

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.

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 don’t 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.

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?

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.

We have a candidate who has now recently admitted that he was a Kenyan citizen (here at his campaign website); who has been challenged to prove that he is indeed eligible to serve as President of the United States, and he refuses to provide such evidence? Who instead tries to fob off such perfectly legitimate questions?

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?

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 what might be news to some people on this thread, a motion for summary judgment at the beginning of a lawsuit is part of the process.

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!

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.
