Skip to comments.Democrat: Obama's grandma confirms Kenyan birth'...real sham he's pulled off for the last 20 months'
Posted on 10/23/2008 10:30:22 PM PDT by Red Steel
The Pennsylvania Democrat who has sued Sen. Barack Obama demanding he prove his American citizenship and therefore qualification to run for president has confirmed he has a recording of a telephone call from the senator's paternal grandmother confirming his birth in Kenya.
The issue of Obama's birthplace, which he states is Honolulu in 1961, has been raised enough times that his campaign website has posted an image purporting to be of his "Certification of Live Birth" from Hawaii.
But Philip J. Berg, a former deputy attorney general for Pennsylvania, told the Michael Savage talk radio program tonight that the document is forged and that he has a tape recording he will soon release.
"This has been a real sham he's pulled off for the last 20 months," Berg told Savage. "I'll release it [the tape] in a day or two, affidavits from her talking to a certain person. I heard the tape. She was speaking [to someone] here in the United States."
He said the telephone call was from Obama's paternal grandmother affirming she "was in the delivery room in Kenya when he was born Aug. 4, 1961."
Three, be a natural-born citizen. He is not."
Obama campaign officials acknowledged the dispute by posting the image purporting to be a copy of his certification of live birth earlier this year. But they've declined to return WND requests for comment...
WND reported earlier this week Berg's claim that Obama has legally "admitted" the accusations included in his lawsuit, including that he was born in Mombosa, Kenya, by not responding to the allegations.
Berg has cited Rule 36 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which states that unless the accused party provides written answer or objection to charges within 30 days, the accused legally admits the matter.

The story has real legs. This ain’t something they can duck.
Obama looks guilty here.
I sure hope so.
I hope Michelle’s ‘whitey’ tape can be released the same time as the ‘grandma’ tape. The two together will be devasting to Obama’s campaign.
I thought he had the grandmother’s confirmation in writing, not as a recording.
Oh goodie, another tape promise.
Pity we can’t focus on facts and we focus on some Carnival Barker who keeps bringing up this ridiculous story. The serial number and the certificate with raised seal WERE produced. If this were a real problem Clinton would have wiped him long ago. They base the forgery deduction from the one on Obama’s site and not on the one he produced for FactCheck. This is NO defense of Obama whatsoever, but my god how long are we going to keep chasing rainbows?
I can’t buy this stuff without proof but WOULDN’T IT BE FN HILARIOUS! Mass suicides at the DUmp, the Kos Kommie Kiddie playground and at the Huffingandpuffing Post. LOL!!! It’s too good to be true.
Maybe we’ll get the Michelle Whitey tape, the Michell African Press International tape and the grandma tape all in one day.
If he is not a “natural born citizen,” his accolytes are not going to give a rat’s ass. After all, if they are going to vote for a condescending elitist who votes to let babies die after being born alive - they are not going to care about whether or not he’s “qualified.”
It’s not a shadow, and hey welcome to FR.
My Gosh, I sure hope so...I have been waiting months for something to come up....we here at FR know a lot more than most. MSM doesnt say anything about Obama.....They cant ignore a tape!!!!! strike one
Next Whitey Tape, strike two
Third at bat R.Odinga, Obama uses U.S. money to support...strike three See YAAAAAAAAA!
I think the media and the obamaniacs would try to pass a law that it doesnt matter...he is what is right with America....they will go to the Supreme Court!!!!
OBama will be the first Kenyan Citizen to be our Pres.
It might not matter.
All my children were born in Japan, yet all are citizens by birth with US Passports.
I don’t know what the law was in 61, but a child born overseas to a US citizen today can derive citizenship from parentage.
It’s just that I was a trial lawyer and judge for 40 years and, though of course I could be wrong, from what I have found on this issue it looks ludicrous.
Well they can’t do that. Would need to be a constitutional amendment and that won’t happen. But this 9/11 conspiracy theorist’s rantings (Berg) are bogus.
Only if the mother is of age. Obama’a mother was a teenager.
The fact is, the ANNENBERG Public Policy Center (APPC), the sponsoring agency behind FastCheck.org,
is itself supported by the same foundation, the ANNENBERG FOUNDATION, that Bill Ayers secured the 49.2 million dollars from to create the Chicago ANNENBERG Challenge philanthropic organization in which Barack Obama was the founding Chairman of the Board for and Ayers served as the grant writer of and co-Chair of for its two operating arms.
I wouldn't trust FactCheck.org to tell me there was a beautiful blue sky in NYC on 9-11-01.
Welcome to FR.
If your mother is married to your father and your father is a Kenyan muslim, and you are born in Kenya, you are a Kenyan muslim.
One parent does not suffice for US citizenship. Else every Thirdworldistani mother would claim that a US serviceman (or tourist) was the daddy.
If my(American citizen)daughter's child is born in Forres, Scotland while she is there on an extended vacation does that mean my grandchild will not be a naturalized American citizen even though my daughter was born in Florida to a family that came here in 1830?
They may not care a “rat’s arse”, but even if Obama manages a narrow win now, the courts will care. If Biden, then, becomes POTUS, he will be holding on for dear life for his four year term. At two years, the dems will lose control of the House and a conservative President will waltz into the White House two years later with substantial loses to dems in the Senate. Socialist will never maintain power in the freedom loving USA.
What do you call what we've been living under the past couple of decades?
That's the problem.
We've been like the proverbial frogs in the frying pan.
Obama would just turn up the heat a little more.
Don't believe me?
What exactly was the bailout all about?
Someone else might know better, but I think it depends on whether the father is an American citizen whether your grandchild will be considered a natural born citizen. I believe Mitt Romney was born in Mexico, but both his parents were US citizens, therefore, he is considered a natural born US citizen.
All Obama has to do is present genuine evidence, and this issue will go away. It’s very simple.
We’re still waiting.
Well, Klepto, I see you’ve only been a Freeper for 6 days. Isn’t the DU missing you about now.
Go home troll.
Whether your grandkid would be eligible to be President and CIC some day is not clearly defined at this point. Not all citizens are, only 'natural born citizens' qualify.
What exactly that turn of phrase means is the topic of a rather lively debate at the moment...
Not true in 1961.
to be president you must be a NATURAL BORN citizen. Unless they were born in military territories, they can’t be president. That’s the constitution and the law.
You see the big picture. :-)
All attorney Berg has to do is present some real evidence.
We're stil waiting.
It's a "recorded phonecall."
Illegal, unless the grandmother gave explicit consent.
Assuming such a recording actually exists.
BTW: Remember "Baghdad Jim" McDermott?
And who would be Veep???
Biden will leave office one way or another on 21 Jan 2010. Hillary! will finish his term and still be eligible for two more full terms of her very own...
You miss the point: If proven that he does not meet the Constitutional criteria BEFORE the Election, all votes cast for him means Biden becomes President if the ticket wins. Same applies if they win and it is proven AFTER the election. NOW, HERE’S THE RUB....
If this is proven BEFORE the election, and his supporters know that he will not sit in the Oval Office but Biden will, they will be so demoralized and depressed they will not show up to vote just to put another old, white guy in office. Can you say “President McCain”?
Thanks for expressing my feelings!
Could you be thinking of his father Governor George Romney ?
Not a chance.
The onus is on Obama. The issue will not go away for Obama.
His father was NOT a U.S. citizen serving in another country in the military. Same rules do NOT apply.
Can you say “race riots”?
Your point is well taken, but I, personally, refuse to give in to the seeming tide of acceptance of socialistic ideals. And I expect my conservative friends and associates to be, likewise, resistant to such a disastrous course.
Hey, We're not libtards, we can do more than one thing at a time.
I think we should concentrate on whether this Muslim is qualified to run for President of the United States of America. This is no small matter, Skippy.
Before the election DNC might choose Hillary/Biden and after the election...electors might choose Hillary/Biden! After the inauguration it becomes Biden choosing a VP. So now we have Biden/Hillary.
Pelosi just sits and hopes they both are not chosen. She is next in line. LOL
Yes, but I think she was a resident of Hawaii when she got knocked up by a FOREIGN NATIONALIST at the age of 17.
She allegedly had her child at 18. The laws at the time *\(paraphrased) stated that to confer citizenship, one had to have been a legal resident of the USA for 10 years (I think), 5 of which had to be after the age of 14. IOW, his mother would have had to be 19 to pass on citizenship.
It is intriguing and irresistible to to think there could be some crazy twist in the plot where the good guys win. I feel euphoric desperation with each new turn of the birth certificate story. Your observation is keeping me within the reach of reason. My obsession with the birth certificate story might be related to my lack of confidence that we might achieve a conventional victory this election.
Obama mother was a minor when she gave birth to Obama and the father was a foreign national. If Obama was born overseas, his mother failed the test according to the law in place at the time, and therefore, Obama did not meet the U.S. Constitutional requirement to be a ‘natural born’ citizen.
If Obama wins this election, I can only pray that I’m right. This is a rubicon moment for America. God save us! God bless America!
Very close, she was almost exactly 18 years and 9 months old when she delivered Obama, Jr.
I have a pretty good idea of what she got for an 18th birthday present...
“I have a pretty good idea of what she got for an 18th birthday present... “
LOL!, You know she did :)
