Posted on 10/23/2008 5:34:40 PM PDT by FloridaBattleGround
Who announces days in advance they're rushing to the side of a loved one who is deathly ill but keeps campaigning in a race that's said to be over, only to go to the loved one's side days later? See, I think this is about something else. You know what's really percolating out there? I've been laying low on this because it hasn't met the threshold to pass the smell test on this program.
This birth certificate business, this lawsuit that a guy named Philip Berg filed in Philadelphia in August for Obama to produce his genuine birth certificate and he still hasn't replied. You've got a deathly ill grandmother, you are going to rush to her side a few days from now, when you first announced this, you're going to rush, you're going to hurry, you're going to make tracks, you're going to get over there because you don't want your grandmother to die before you got there like your mother did, but somehow you keep campaigning, you take three days to get over there, if he's left yet, and this birth certificate business, I'm just wondering if something's up. I have no clue, and folks, I'm telling you, this has not reached the threshold until now, and it's popping up all over the place. There are a lot of people now that are starting to speculate and be curious about this.

Rush may have brought up 0bama’s Birth Certificate, but he still has yet to mention 0bama’s membership to the Democratic Socialists of America and their New Party.
He was very cautious and moved on quickly. At least a wider audience is aware of it.
Knowing how Rush works he probably floated this today so open line Friday is a buzz with it.
That takes the heat off him if callers are discussing it. How he responds to callers is another thing.
He did use the c word..Communist. I think there is something to this citizenship issue. He may not be allowed to become President even if he wins. Justice Roberts may not swear him in.
The guy who filed this lawsuit - Phillip Berg - is a deranged freak 9/11 Truther:
Rush is usually right, but he screwed up here, and the sooner he drops it, the less embarrassing it will be for everyone.
Did David Letterman ask Obama if he needed a ride?....
Obama doesn't need the Chief Justice in order to be sworn in. What would have to happen would be a military coup taking place. Absent that, he would be sworn in.
Now, why did Rush wait three days to react to the “sick” act?
I TOTALLY agree with you. This is a non-story and has wasted an amazing amount of time for we conservatives.
Petreus or Obama....Hmmmm??
But, democrats don’t think that his far fetched...Bush is the cause of all things that go wrong in the world...
By the way, I see another Bush Administration official has backed Obama....seems that it will be an Obama/Bush administration. It will be Obama who continues the “failed policies of the Bush administration!”
Savage had a man from Pennsylvania, former State
official, that maintains Obama does not have A
valid birth certificate and is challenging his
word....and the guy is a staunch Democrat..this is
something Fox News and group ought to pin down and
What you said may be........
“The guy who filed this lawsuit - Phillip Berg - is a deranged freak 9/11 Truther”
Yeah, but he is a Democrat.
Can we get him to bring up Odinga? What abt the you tube video? Why won’t Hannity put in on H&C? It would finish the election!!!
Its totally at the feet of the democrats and all republicans are doing is observing. Let it go and don’t click on these threads if you don’t like it.
I think the only utility of this story is the fact that it should serve as good warning that Obama in the White House will be like the ‘Toons in the White House. Nonstop questions raised about his character.
I agree with you on Berg.
For all, here’s a good explanation of the jurisprudential concept of “standing,” and why these lawsuits will never be heard, much less pervail:
If obamanation is elected, we are going to find out a LOT of things about him that didn’t come our before the election. AND IT ISN’T GONNA BE WHAT THE DUMMIES THOUGHT THEY WERE VOTING FOR.
Unfortunately, I just think it is way too late to bring up anything else. At this point (if the polls are to be believed - always a question), McCain needs Obama to zip off his skin suit and reveal himself as a Crab person from South Park.
if rush even mentioned it believe it is bubbling. rush has a 98.5 correct rating which he does not want to crash.
this visit to hawaii is mysterious. has anyone googled frank marshall davis. it makes me wonder almost as much as the chelsea clinton/webb hubble graphic. if you have looked at that already. got two words for you? do it.
There will be no military coups in the United States.
What could (but won’t) happen is this:
After the Electoral College votes are counted and Obama wins (hypothetically), written objections to his qualifications to serve can be submitted, so long as each objection is signed by a Senator or a Representative.
Then the objections are submitted to the Senate and House, respectively, for their decision (however that is made).
If they find the President-elect is not qualified, then the Vice President acts as President.
Yea right...so since Berg is a ‘truther’ then he is not to be believed....so when he says the sky is blue, don’t believe him....or when he publishes a website with complete documentation, then don’t believe him....
wake up or go back to kos, obama is going down
Shows what I know
Weeks and more following this story and yours is the first link I have seen to this Berg 9-11 nonsense.
Tempted to shoot the messenger (meaning Berg) but must say that he might be right this time.
I do appreciate this other side to the Berg story, but I am still of the belief that 0bama has some serious issues with his birth, citizenship, or something to do with what might be on any documents he could produce to verify his satisfaction of requirements listed in the Constitution...
What about this:
Original birth certificate - not released
Obama/Dunham marriage license - not released
Soetoro/Dunham marriage license - not released
Soetoro adoption records - not released
Besuki School application - released
Punahou School records - not released
Selective Service Registration - released
Occidental College records - not released
Passport (Pakistan) - not released
Columbia College records - not released
Columbia thesis - not released
Harvard College records - not released
Harvard Law Review articles - none
Baptism certificate - none
Medical records - not released
Illinois State Senate records - none
Illinois State Senate schedule not released (alleged to have been lost)
Law practice client list - not released
University of Chicago scholarly articles - none [23,29,56,186,239]
detailed discussion here:
and all over the web...
We have nothing...absolutely nothing...in the way of verification of who he is or what he has done....
Who would think that a Mystery Man could run for President?
Didn't you see Braveheart? We don't lift our spears until the very last minute.
Thinking that Obama will release his Birth Certification that might disqualify himself is a dream.
What hitting him on Odinga and Black Liberation Theology?
On the other hand it would be nice to know why they put out a counterfeit birth certificate in the first place. Just saying.
Those screaming that this makes republicans look bad aren’t paying attention. This fight is totally among democrats and the republicans are wise to sit back and let it play out.
There is absolutely no way this can hurt the republicans. Hell John McCain was forced to prove his citizenship and if the democrats want to fight over this I say we keep feeding them rope.
Say it ain’t so, Klepto! There is plenty of time and plenty of air time on the tube. The vid of Obambi speechifying for the genocidal uncle in Kenya is stunning and deserves to be aired - it’s NEVER too late - unless you want to LOSE!!!
Doug, I’ve been here for many years longer than you - and I’ll continue to shoot down this crap - because I’m concerned with winning the election, and this idiotic conspiracy-mongering loses elections.
Now Doug, go back to Kos or the Democratic Underground or where ever you came from. Because no genuine conservative could be so stupid.
I never suggested or advocated a military coup taking place. I was using that as an example of what would have to occur in order for a President-elect Obama for being sworn in.
And another thing: I don’t know if I have my birth certificate. It might still be in a box in my storage area, but maybe not, because I’ve moved numerous times, and lost some documents.
So if I had to prove my state of birth, I might have to ask the hospital to produce a certificate of live birth, as Obama did.
Now, you guys gonna call the INS and get me deported?
What would have to happen would be a military coup taking place.
Could happen. Military rule for perhaps 4 to 10 years to clear out the liberal/Democrat traitors, like happened in Chile under Pinochet. Then re-establishment of constitutional government under the Republicans.
John McCain had to prove his citizenship and elgibility to hold office.
Could this be the Biden scenario?
We are about to witness a LOVE FEST between BHO and the MSM [& press] the likes of which we have never seen before.
With this and a Democrat Congress there is NO LAW that will not get wide spread approval by the MSM and quick passage by the Congress and signature by BHO.
If ever there was a time in our history where our nation would be RIPE for institutionalizing SOCIALISM or possibly some sort of dictatorship, without a shot being fired it will start Jan 20, 2009.
How about a preemptive attack on Iran by Israel?
How about President Bush declares war on Iran at the same time a JOINT US-ISRAELI force attacks their nuclear sites? That would give the election to McCain.
Thanks for clearing that up!
Obama’s in Hawaii where he’s going to place a pillow over his grandmother’s face.
*Obama has a tissue thin work experience resume.
* He has not managed large groups of personnel, departments, material, or P&L statements.
* Obama’s own writing exhibits a deep-seeded anger and resentment towards people of the Caucasian race over the issue of slavery.
* His emotional gravitas is centered upon his African heritage, and his belief that the white man is responsible for global poverty and unequal sharing of wealth.
* Obama’s personal associations since childhood have been mostly with radical African Americans, Muslims, and communists; those who harbor anger towards The United States of America.
* Particularly disturbing is his lengthy relationship with Bill Ayers, an unrepentant Weatherman radical who bombed government buildings and abdicated the overthrow of the United States.
* Given the current global situation of nearly twelve thousand Muslim acts of terrorism since 911, it is disturbing to find his close associations with Muslim groups
*The statements in Obama’s books are disturbing and this one is particularly disturbing: Should the political winds shift in an ugly direction I will side with the Muslims.
* Obama has surrounded himself with anti-American grievance mongers, and appears to manipulate typical white people by appealing to their guilt about slavery.
* He is a socialist, and totally disenfranchised from the history of root America.
* Obama refuses to discuss his years at Columbia University, although he lived off campus and made few friends.
* Obama will not release his application to the state bar notes which raises questions on several issues including the use of drugs.
* Very little is available about Obama’s experience with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a foundation that spent $100 million with no discernable benefit for the schools and students that it was designed to help.
*Obama did not run with a mainstream crowd, but chose radicals and communist agitators for his social group.
*Obama’s pastor met with global terrorist Mohmmar Gaddafi in Libya, along with their mutual friend and anti-American Louis Farrakhan.
*Obama has referred to this radical pastor Wright as his personal spiritual advisor, and in fact, the title of one of Obama’s memoirs was inspired by a line from this pastors sermons.
*Obama is endorsed by every Muslim terrorist organization on Earth; and holds Muslim beliefs.
*Obama used tactics from Rules for Radicals at his previous employment.
*Obama’s wife used an excerpt from this book during a recent speech.
*Both Obama books are full of anti-American, anti-white racist passages.
*Obama admitts drug use.
*Obama’s wife wrote bitter anti-white thesis as a college undergraduate.
*Obama went to Kenya to campaign for Raila Odinga, who is connected with brutal Muslim politics in Africa, who instigated riots after losing the presidency that caused the death of 1200 and who had a pact with hard-line Muslims to enforce Sharia law on the country if he was elected.
There is evidence that Obama helped Odinga plan his campaign even down to the riots.
Obama did this on the U.S. taxpayer dollar!!
*Obama’s father was part of Kenyas most corrupt regime.
*Obama has used more than one name.
*Obama’s original birth certificate is unavailable.
*Obama was mentored during his youth by a high level communist in Hawaii, Frank Marshall Davis, an admitted bisexual and pedophile.
*Obama was proctored into an elite Eastern private university by a middle eastern Muslim, Khalid al-Mansour.
*Obama has terrorist organization Nations of Islam employees on his current staff, and one of his advisors is a member of the global terrorist group Muslim Brotherhood.
Yet this man is steamrolling his way full speed ahead into the White House.
His sordid past is covered up by his volunteer campaigners, the MSM.
The Republicans will not vet him.
WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE???
HAS AMERICAN GONE STARK RAVING MAD???
DEMAND Mccain/Palin fight Obama back! NAME NAMES!
Ayers! Wright! Frank Davis! Odinga!
McCain will NOT attack enough to win the election.
McCains anemic attempts to fight Obama back is losing this election. DEMAND THEY EXPOSE OBAMA. NAME NAMES!!
Flood him out with emails with videos, articles, documentation.
Flood the MSM out with emails with videos, articles, documentation. DEMAND they put the truth before the American voters!
and pick up all the email addresses to the McCain camp and HUNDREDS of emails of MSM.
Obama did produce a birth certificate and it was examined and deemed valid and they say the group examining it was a Soros group and on and on.
Even IF Obama hasn’t produced a birth certificate, that wouldn’t prove he was born outside the United States and then I thought if he’s born to an American mother he’s American.
I think Rush is just playing with Obama, I think he really really dislikes how leftist Obama is and he knew mention of this would keep the issue alive in some folks’ minds. He’s probably also annoyed the dems fight so dirty and the GOP plays so nice.
My guess is Obama has so damn much money for ads and a lead and thinks he can take the time off. Very hard to see what Obama would need to do personally in Hawaii regarding a birth certificate. It’s a little late to fake his baby footprint.
I have spent a lot of time on this site and its links and it seems to very solidly refute all of Berg’s assertions...
reposting the link:
I cannot find out who or what is behind it
if you take the link, and delete everything after the ...com/ and hit the go to button on your browser, you end up on a “Thistle Tea” website with some personal information about favorite music and so on...and there is no link from that to any of the information that we are discussing...
Do you have any idea who or what has posted the information you linked to?
There is no “about” link or any other way (that I can find) to figure out where this information comes from.
I am not argueing with you, or the information on the link, but I would like to know who or what has posted it...as evidently they have taken a lot of time and effort to post it and to hide their idenity.
You ask a good question.
Since I am generally familiar with the cases discussed at the link and federal civil procedure-—although I cannot vouch for the presentation in all particulars-—I took it at face value as a good summary of the law on this point.
To answer your question, I don’t know who is behind the site. It’s not the big-time, that’s for sure.
I’d say the important thing, if there are questions, is to verify that the summaries of the cases are accurate. That could be done by googling the case names.
One point: these cases only refute Berg’s assertions of standing to sue. They don’t go to whether or not he has enough evidence to go forward against Obama if he did have standing.
see post 17
for a strong refutation of the Berg lawsuit
and my post 44
can you make any sense of this?
Have you attempted to contact the owner through a comment? You leave a comment with your e-mail. The site doesn’t publish comments, so your e-mail won’t go puglic. But, she will answer you directly.
The owner is an Obama supporter. She became interested in the allegations back in the primaries. She started keeping personal notes on links to stories about the allegations. When the complaint was filed, she decided to move her notes to a blog.
You do have to check the sources and recognize that she is an Obama supporter. I still find it interesting.
I think you go to your county health department for a copy of your birth certificate.
