Obama is "NOT" qualified to be President of the United States Lawsuit Against Obama Dismissed from Philadelphia Federal Court
For Immediate Release: - 10/25/08 - Contact Info at end. UPDATE: Ruling attached at end. It's a really poor copy, but it is all we have for the moment. Willl put up a better copy when we get one.
(Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania 10/25/08) - Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obamas lack of qualifications to serve as President of the United States, announced today that he is immediately appealing the dismissal of his case to the United States Supreme Court. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.
Berg said, "I am totally disappointed by Judge Surrick's decision and, for all citizens of the United States, I am immediately appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court.
This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution. If I don't have standing, if you don't have standing, if your neighbor doesn't have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States - the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world - then who does?
So, anyone can just claim to be eligible for congress or the presidency without having their legal status, age or citizenship questioned.
According to Judge Surrick, we the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U.S. Constitution.
What happened to ...Government of the people, by the people, for the people,... Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address 1863.
We must legally prevent Obama, the unqualified candidate, from taking the Office of the Presidency of the United States, Berg said.
Our website obamacrimes.com now has 71.8 + million hits. We are urging all to spread the word of our website and forward to your local newspapers and radio and TV stations.
Berg again stressed his position regarding the urgency of this case as, we the people, are heading to a Constitutional Crisis if this case is not resolved forthwith.

He is going to ask the SCOTUS to change the law in essence. To make it possible for the average person to question the qualifications of a candidate for President. This is either a Pandora's Box, or a chance for the average Man to have a say with just cause to do so.
Maybe the judge dismissing it on the grounds he did will turn out to be a good thing, the USSC would be higher profile, Obama can’t appeal higher, and they would have a vested interest in the Constitutional aspect. There are also enough Conservatives sitting, if there is something to this, it has a chance of being heard.
How could this judge say that a US Citizen has no standing about his president?
“He is going to ask the SCOTUS to change the law in essence.”
Change what law??
“To make it possible for the average person to question the qualifications of a candidate for President”
The President of the United States represents the PEOPLE.
So why wouldn’t the People have standing to bring the suit?
Either individually or collectively..
Actually he is merely asking that they require a potential future President of the United States to prove that he is legally qualified. Is that asking too much?
Because to liberals, the people have no rights, only (tax) obligations.
This could be big news. Drudge is running lower court rejection. He is sure to pick up SCOTUS appeal.
If anything, it puts doubt into play.
“Because to liberals, the people have no rights, only (tax) obligations.”
You got that right.
SCOTUS is the proper forum really. It all just depends now on if they will hear the case or throw it out. If they throw it out, then we really are lost as a nation. As Berg quotes “A government of the people BY the people” well WE are the People, and we deserve to know that candidates are qualified under the constitution to run for the office they seek. No one has ever Vetted Obama, he has snuck under the radar at every damned opportunity. Its time to stop that right dead in its tracks.
While I do not agree with Berg’s “truther” stuff. Politics have made the strangest bedfellows ever in this election.
If he can expose and (Lord help us all) correct a deficiency in the Constitution that has no mechanism to insure that those running for the highest office in the land actually meet the requirements it sets forth, may God bless him.
We have apparently been sitting on this landmine for over 200 years and spared only because decent people respected what the law said. Now we have this man who is not decent and we need to stop him. If you will excuse me...by any lawful means necessary.
Could the judge or somebody tell me WHO has standing? And when we find out, let that/those person(s) file suit.
Why shouldn’t Berg be able to ask the question, “Can you show us your birth certificate?” What’s so wrong about that and why does a judge appointed by Bill Clinton say he doesn’t have the authority to ask? Who does then? What caste level in our society can ask such an exalted question of the shiester “lord barrack...”...I guess only a democratic judge when it’s about the citizenship of a republican candidate....we’re headed towards fascism...if this thug wins, we all lose big time....
What entity is otherwise responsible for this inquiry?
“Newsmax reports that U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick has dismissed the complaint by Philip Berg challenging the eligibility of Barack Obama for the presidency. The document has not yet been posted to the Justia.com site, so we cannot directly quote it, but Newsmax writes:
Surrick issued a 34-page memorandum and opinion that said the claims were “ridiculous” and “patently false.” He also said Berg’s effort to pursue his claim regarding Obama’s citizenship were “frivolous and not worthy of discussion.” “
