Lawsuit Challenges Barack Obama Citizenship

Click to view lawsuit.

Prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter Phillip Berg has filed a lawsuit contesting Barack Obama‘s citizenship qualifications to seek the presidency.

Upon learning of the lawsuit filed earlier this week, I couldn’t help but conclude that Berg must have read one of these Bob McCarty Writes posts about the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee:

Barack Obama Birth Certificate Dubbed a Fake (July 21, 2008)

Update Offered on Bogus Obama Birth Certificate (Aug. 4, 2008)

Blogger Demands FEC Verify Obama’s Eligibility (Aug. 7, 2008)

Below are the key points of the lawsuit which, if successful, could turn the 2008 presidential election process upside down:

1.  Obama is a representative of the Democratic People. However, the Obama must meet the Qualifications specified for the United States Office of the President, which is he must be a “natural born” citizen. Unfortunately, Obama is not a “natural born” citizen. Just to name one of the problems, Obama lost his U.S. citizenship when his mother married an Indonesian citizen and relocated herself and Obama to Indonesia wherein Obama’s mother naturalized in Indonesia and Obama followed her naturalization, as he was a minor and in the custody of his mother. Obama failed to take the oath of allegiance when he turned eighteen (18) years to regain his United States Citizenship status.

2.  The Democratic National Committee is for Plaintiff and “We the People” who believe in the Democratic Vision. The Democratic National Party is supposed to represent the Democratic Americans in seeking honest leadership, Open Government, Real Security, Energy Independence, Economic Prosperity, Educational Excellence, a Healthcare System that works for Everyone and Retirement Security. The Democratic Party is supposed to represent and protect the interests of working Americans and guaranteeing personal liberties for all. Of which includes securing a Democratic Nominee on the Presidential Election ballot who represents the Democratic vision and who is qualified and eligible to run for Office of the President under the qualifications of the United States Constitution.

3.  The actions of Obama, a U.S. Senator, in running for President of the United States, knowing he is not eligible, have been taken entirely without authorization under the United States Constitution, completely ignoring the qualification and procedures created by the United States Constitution he is purporting to enforce.

  1. Maniac — Move on? Not until the question are answered. One paragraph of the decision leaves questions:

    Moreover, the Court In Bullock did not limit or in any way invalidate votes that had already been cast; nor did it void the results of the elections that had taken place. Se Ed. at 136- 37, 149 (affirming that court’s permanent injunction of the filing fee law). By contrast, Plaintiff would have us derail the democratic process by invalidating a candidate for whom millions of people voted and who underwent excessive vetting during what was one of the most hotIy contested presidential primary in living memory.

    Since when did majority opinion trump the Constitution? Never!

  2. hotoffthepress2 – yeah, the judge was under control of the Ayers mind control device… all of the mass media and the lawyers in DC also forgot to put on their little foil hats, too… so none of them are pointing out this alleged constitutional conflict… our only hope now is you, Berg and a handful of bloggers who are thye only ones who seem to know the real truth…

    The judge made it clear that Berg’s “case” was ridiculous… get over it

  3. First, the lawasuit was dismissed do to lack of standing. Meaning, the court and Mr Berg did not not have standing to show damages. Hence, the motion is know beiing appealed to the Supreme Court.

    Second, to a much earlier writer, you are stripped of your U.S. citizenship when you go to school in India. India does not allow dual citzenship, so an oath had to be taken in order for Barack “Barry Soetoro” to live there and attend school. Also, Barrack, at age 20 would not have been able to go to Pakistan on a U.S. visa as travel from the U.S. was banned. He went on an Indonesian visa which requires him to be a citizen of India. This causes two problems, if Barrack came back to the U.S and took a U.S. oath he then would become a “naturalized citizen” if not, much worse, it would make him and “illegal alien”. Either way Barrack is constituionally inelligible for POTUS.
    Regardless of being a Dem or Repub, it should be agreed upon that this should not be allowed. So make a stink now and vote for Hillary!!!!

  4. How does one go about getting a US passport without becoming a US citizen? And why is Berg so concerned about this if no one else (especially McCain and Clinton who should have more info on Obama than anyone else in America). If he truly cared about the party he would have bought these allegations to court a year ago.

  5. BTW – another thing to take in to consideration is that, if the case had not been thrown out, it would have taken weeks, if not months, before the wheels of justice would have turned to the point that they would have actually evaluated the documents (courts have to follow procedure). So, it would not have been resolved by the election, and it would have created more attention.

  6. Hotoff the….guess you didn’t get an education. Well, its’ not too late. Listen less to Rush and Hanity and try reading instead…in a library.

  8. Hi,

    I suggest and request that you please do an update story in the next day or so on the Obama Citizenship Lawsuits. Not much has been written about these cases recently. Your news site is one of the few to cover these cases.

    Few Americans and readers now that a 2nd case has just reached the U.S. Supreme Court and has been Docketed before Justice Souter. The 2nd one is the Donofrio Case filed in NJ. The 1st was the Berg vs. Obama case filed in PA. Since both are in the jurisdiction of Souter, he has both of them.

    U.S. Supreme Court Docket Entry for Berg vs. Obama, the first case to reach the U.S. Supreme Court, in regards to Obama’s citizenship status:

  9. I believe Obama pulled a fast one on america I sold insurance or 7 years it is possible to pull off a sale like what and how he did it. OBAMA’S NOT A CITIZEN BUT HE MADE HISTORY being the first black man to walk this plank using change to relieve the fears of a well planned diobolic economic mess in early 2003 that balooned on Q for his election it’s priceless! hahhhahahah we are all suckers for this and complete fools to let this be a standard in american politics.


  11. No one in the gov. seems interested in whether Obama is eligile to be president or not . How can this happen in America. Are there any honest judges today that can’t be bought. With all the eviden ce that shows Obama in kenyan how can this not keep him from office. Lord help us all if this can’t be stopped.

  12. Even if Obama produced authenticated proof of his birth in
    Hawaii, however, the suit claims that the U.S. Nationality
    Act of 1940 provided that minors lose their American
    citizenship when their parents expatriate. Since Obama’s
    mother married an Indonesian citizen and moved to
    Indonesia, the suit claims, she forfeited both her and
    Barack’s American citizenship.

  13. Obama has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on attorneys in order to get these lawsuits dismissed. Call me silly, but if there was nothing to hide why doesn’t he just release his original Certificate of Live Birth that is locked up in Hawaii to prove that he is an American citizen? The American people have only the SCOTUS standing between them and Obama to uphold the U.S. Constitution. On December 5th, if the SCOTUS decides to not pursue this issue further, then the very foundation this country was built on will be thrown aside. God help us.

  14. If Senator Obama has nothing to hide, then why wont he produce his birth certificate? That is, the long form version, which will provide all the answers as to his citizenship and therefore his eligibility to be POTUS. But he hasn’t. And Barack, it has been alleged, has also spent some $800,000 in legal fees to make this issue go away…This leaves me wondering just who this man is? And is Senator Obama ignoring the US Constitution? – Is he stepping on this most precious document? …Unless we know the truth he could be sworn in and must take the oath of office where he must preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, but will he?

  15. What a stupid statement about no lawyer would ever file a frivilious law suit.

    Hey, I am a lawyer and I would never bring this lawsuit. Where is your standing, client? Maybe Berg has a theory on standing that passes the laugh test, but he couldn’t have been at all surprised that the court ruled against him. He had to know that the overwhelming chances were that his lawsuit would be dismissed. Maybe he did that on purpose, knowing he would get dismissed, then hoping to feed the crazied blog machine with publicity of the dismissal. I have no idea. But I’m sure that most lawyers would have both predicted the dismissal and thought the merits of the challenge were weak to non-existent.

    This is all incredibly silly. The official keeper of the records has vouched for Obama’s original birth certificate being on file. That is proof.

    Originals are always kept by whatever registry a state uses. No one ever has more than a certified copy. Who certifies it? The official keeper of records.

    So if the official word of Hawaii is not enough, none of us could prove where we were born.

    So, I just wonder, everyone who thinks Elvis is alive raise your hands.

  16. Here are two official emails that make the public version of Obama’s Birth and his mother’s marriage to BHO Sr. HIGHLY unlikely. How could she be in Honolulu in Aug 1961 giving birth, AND in Seattle 2800 miles away attending U of WA? Why do Nobama’s bios lie that his mom and BHO Sr, were married and stayed together in Hawaii until BHO Sr left for Boston, when the reality is Stanley Ann Dunham was in Seattle and didn’t return to Hawaii until BHO Sr LEFT.

  17. As of 1/4/10 the most recent date that the Supreme Court has been reviewing documents about his citizenship, it’s still being contested — AFTER THE ELECTION.

  18. Barack Obama is of Negro descent (Mulatto) and as such, his status of citizenship is founded upon the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. But the 14th Amendment addresses only “Civil Rights” (Privileges and Immunities) not Political Rights nor Unalienable Rights. The only Political Right that has been granted to none white Citizens is that of “Suffrage” and that Right is limited to “Voting.” (U.S. Constitution, 15th Amendment). As the 14th Amendment does not grant Political or Unalienable Rights, Barack Obama is not a “natural born citizen.”

    For details, see website:

    To the best of my knowledge, this legal argument has never been submitted to any Court of the United States.

    Please pass this information on to everyone you know.
