Skip to comments.Obama Citizenship Lawsuit To Be Amended To Add Defendants
Posted on 10/09/2008 5:13:41 PM PDT by pissant
Philadelphia attorney Philip J. Berg has sought court approval to amend his complaint in a lawsuit styled Berg v. Obama. The amended complaint would add the Pennsylvania Department of State, the Secretary of the Commonwealth Pedro A. Cortes (in his official capacity), the U. S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, and Senator Diane Feinstein (in her official capacity as chairman) for their failure to exercise due diligence with respect to Barack Hussein Obama's constitutional qualifications to be elected and serve as President of The United States, and for his inclusion on the ballot in Pennsylvania as a candidate for President of the United States.
In his original complaint, Mr. Berg alleged that Defendant Barack Hussein Obama is not eligible for the Office of the President because Obama lost his U.S. citizenship when his mother married an Indonesian citizen and naturalized in Indonesia. Plaintiff further alleged that Obama followed her naturalization and failed to take an oath of allegiance when he turned 18 years old to regain his U.S. citizenship status.
According to a web site maintained by the Plaintiff, the amended complaint is intended to clarify issues regarding the plaintiff's standing to bring the lawsuit and supplement the lawsuit with additional relevant facts. Those additional facts are summarized at that web site.
According to the Washington Times, the Obama campaign has firmly said the Illinois Democrat is a natural-born citizen. Last month, the campaign posted on Obama's Web site a copy of his certification of live birth. It says he was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961. The Obama web site, commenting on questions regarding whether Obama is a citizen of Kenya, cites FactCheck.org as follows:
When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdoms dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.s children.
Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.
The issue of Obama's citizenship have been the topic of internet sites for months. Documents and photographs, claiming that Obama was registered in schools in Kenya under the name of Barry Soetoro, have been circulated through a variety of blogs and web sites which has fueled the debate. The Berg lawsuit raises not only the Kenyan citizenship issue but also questions whether Obama was a citizen of Indonesia. According to the allegations of the Plaintiff, Obama lost his U.S. citizenship when his mother married an Indonesian citizen, Lolo Soetoro, who legally acknowledged Obama as his son in Indonesia and/or adopted Obama, which caused Obama to become a natural Indonesian citizen.
The parties are waiting on the court to rule on a motion to dismiss filed by Barack Hussein Obama. Lawyers for Obama and the Democratic National Commitee have also filed a motion for a protective order staying discovery in the case until the court rules on the motion to dismiss.
WE got RICO and we have The Birth Certificate
Does anybody believe these charges will come to pass against a presidential candidate especially one with riot potential
Talk about a constitutional crisis
Easy fix, Obamadon of Ramadan. Just produce your real birth certificate
I’m sure a “birth certificate” will be ‘made’ very soon, if it hasn’t been already. Sure it will be fake, but how would anyone ever be able to really tell for sure? I’m certain they will have their own experts look at it and approve of it’s effectiveness before allowing it to be seen by the public. They won’t pull a Mary Mapes/Dan Rather, and rush out a crap forgery.
Why not add Howard Dean and the DNC as well. He’s the Democrat candidate. They should have known if he was eligible or not.
At this point, with the amended complaint of Indonesian citizenship, the birth certificate would only answer part of the complaint.
If he was in fact adopted by his stepfather, as Indonesian school records suggest, he would have to address that as well.
Either way, something is definitely shady if he isn’t willing to just do what he needs to make it go away. I really think they thought he would just sail into office without questioning.
This is what Odinga/Obama has in store for the USA
They already did that for the COLB released to the KOSkids
Producing a birth certificate is simple enough for most people to do, yet some would trust him to run the country when he can’t even keep up with basic personal paperwork.
“have also filed a motion for a protective order staying discovery in the case until the court rules on the motion to dismiss.”
Why would you do this unless you have something to hide? If I was asked to prove I was a citizen for a job (which I did when I joined the Army), I would do it without a second thought. So why are they fighting this?
I think that’s why Berg added the Indonesian citizenship issue. The birth certificate is only part of the complaint.
If he lost his copy, all he has to do is ask Hawaii to go into their archives and produce a copy. Instead, he went the fake COLB route.
did you read this: Last month, the campaign posted on Obama’s Web site a copy of his certification of live birth. It says he was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961.
it appears that he has produced certificate?
Obama has indeed “produced” a certificate. Yet we all want want — the original — from Hawaii.
Holy schmoly. Have you been living in Borneo the last 4 months?
