BERG FILES MOTION FOR EXPEDITED DISCOVERY BY "SEPTEMBER 31"
America's Right ^ | 9/9/08 | Jeff Schreiber

BERG FILES MOTION FOR EXPEDITED DISCOVERY, SEEKS DEPOSITION OF BARACK OBAMA AND HOWARD DEAN BY "SEPTEMBER 31"

Stay tuned here for the update, coming later tonight.

I pointed out, to Phillip Berg, that there are only 30 days in September.

"Well," he said, chuckling. "I guess I created an extra day in September like he created seven extra states in our country."

He’s going to end up paying Obama sanctions.

This has no chance, and just makes him look silly.

What information or documentation have you seen that Obama was born in the U.S.?

Excellent!
If nothing else, this legal action is draining rat funds and providing a distraction.

When Berg first presented this lawsuit about a month ago, I posted it. But, Atty. Berg is somewhat of a cracked crockpot as is known, and he has a history of filing ridiculous suits. But he is a good researcher, a fighter, and most of all a Democrat trying to out his party's candidate! Maybe it won't sprout big wings and go anywhere...but it sure will circulate on the Internet. More popcorn anyone???

He couldn’t even prove up enough of the case to get an ex parte Temporary Restraining Order signed. The burden is on Berg here—not Obama. Has he even gotten Obama served? Never mind personal service, what about substituted service?

This case amuses me, but for all the wrong reasons.

Well, he got that done anyway. I don’t know federal law, but I would expect Obama’s guys to use the gamut of procedural delays, and challenge Berg’s standing. So they won’t run the risk of a default and will respond within the time alloted by law, but they will not just do a general denial, but something more.

This case is toxic. The judge will find a way to get rid of it, most likely for lack of standing. Or ripeness (unless Obama wins, it’s not worth ruling on).

I just don’t get that so many people believe this will really come close to getting Obama disqualified. It’s a red herring. Entertaining, yes, but little more than a historical footnote.

As part of the vetting process and obeying the Constitution I think he needs to provide some kind of documentation to prove he was born in the U.S. To this date I have seen none. John McCain has provided his.

Why wouldn’t he have standing? He is an American citizen saying that Obama has fraudulently run for office and doesn’t meet the minimum requirements, namely being born in the US. He should put up his evidence or shut up but if he has evidence, lets see it.

A citizen doesn't have standing in who the Democrats decide to run for President. They can run anyone they want. Once the person runs in the general, and the electoral college is selected and are prepared to vote for that person, the other parties in the race can sue to make sure that person is eligible to be president. But since, in this country the electoral college elects the president, not individual citizens, then a citizen does not have standing to make such a suit.

Now another party I suppose could challenge the person's elector's names on individual state ballots.... assuming there is a state law stating the person has to qualify to be president of the united states to be placed on the ballot.

In any case, this man doesn't have standing to sue in a federal court.

Not sure this move is good for the GOP ticket.

I mean, if they push Obama off the edge, Hillary comes back on scene to fight McCain/Palin, where Ron Paul is about to run as an independent and drain conservative votes. This may lead to the Clintons back to the White House afterall. Yuck.

As they say, gotta be careful what you wish for. It might come true only to kick you in the ass.

On August 21st, 2008, Philip J. Berg, Esq. filed a federal lawsuit in federal court (Berg vs. Obama, Civil Action No. 08-cv-4083) seeking a Declaratory Judgment and an Injunction that Obama does not meet the qualifications to be President of the United States.

Yesterday, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Obama were served with a complaint and summons. The DNC was served at noon and Obama was served at 1:00 p.m. All Defendants have now been served so the case can proceed.

In his lawsuit, Berg stated that Senator Obama:

1. Is not a natural-born citizen; and/or
2. Lost his citizenship when he was adopted in Indonesia; and/or
3. Has dual loyalties because of his citizenship with Kenya and Indonesia.

Berg said: “I filed this action at this time to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.”

Berg is a former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania; former candidate for Governor and U.S. Senate in Democratic Primaries; former Chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery County; former member of Democratic State Committee; an attorney with offices in Montgomery County, PA and an active practice in Philadelphia, PA.

"I just don’t get that so many people believe this will really come close to getting Obama disqualified."

Actually all I'm hoping for is that they are forced to provide a legit copy of his Birth Certificate. That still seems like a possibility.

I thought you might find this thread amusing.

It seems a couple people who signed up in the past few months think we’re wasting our time (I guess it’s really theirs for them to tell us how to spend it) and that as Americans we have no standing when it comes to enforcing the constitution on our betters...

Biden would pretty much have to 'me too' Hillary!™ into the VP slot.

There isn't enough popcorn for the resulting VP debate...

Remember, this is a Hillary person filing this lawsuit... If, just for specuations sake it succeeded (I don’t believe it will), do you think 1 Barack voter would vote for hillary??

I think at best it would split the Dem vote between Paul and Clinton and hopefully we could keep the Pubbies intact...

Sheer conjecture and speculation...

Hello my friend.

I am just sitting here rubbing my eyes.

If Obama is kicked out, I do believe Hillary may be called in as VP. Too late though. Obama and Biden have done too much damage to themselves.

I want to have this phony Obama exposed once and for all for what he is.

I still feel McCain should be kicked out too. In the next few days, we will see if Governor Palin can stand on her own against Biden. I am sure she can. Further, will Biden show up drunk? Who needs McCain.

As frustrating as it is, we are living through interesting times.

Please pass the popcorn.

Since I don’t know who Philip Berg is, I can’t seem to get excited about this.

Oh, wait, I do know something about him ... he’s so dense he doesn’t know how many days are in September.

I would venture a guess that many things in this world exist that you have not seen.

That’s the case with me.

Seriously, isn’t it sort of stupid to think that because you haven’t seen it, it doesn’t exist?
