This story is getting a lot of additional merit once again. Obama’s campaign might be crumbling after this becomes more main stream. A lot of additional information has been surfacing regarding Obama’s United States Constitutional qualifications asking why is he not releasing his medical records, birth certificate and other pertinent information to the courts.
When John McCain was asked to provide his medical records, birth certificate (because he was born in Panama – on a United States Military Base) he did so immediately.Â When Barack Obama was asked to provide this information, he immediately ‘lawyered up’ and is holding this information back.
Molotov Mitchell interviews the Democrat plaintiff in a stunning federal case against Barack Obama . The case is nothing short of electrifying, but the mainstream media is doing its best to keep Americans in the dark. If Obama’s innocent, then why isn’t he cooperating with the court and explain this?Â Why is his campaign keeping this silent?
Philip Berg, the filing attorney, is a former gubernatorial and senatorial candidate, former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery (PA) County, former member of the Democratic State Committee, and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania. According to Berg, he filed the suit–just days before the DNC is to hold its nominating convention in Denver–for the health of the Democratic Party.
‘I filed this action at this time,’ Berg stated, ‘to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated’.
Berg cited a number of unanswered questions regarding the Illinois senator’s background, and in today’s lawsuit maintained that Sen. Obama is not a natural born U.S. citizen or that, if he ever was, he lost his citizenship when he was adopted in Indonesia. Berg also cites what he calls ‘dual loyalties’ due to his citizenship and ties with Kenya and Indonesia.
Even if Sen. Obama can prove his U.S. citizenship, Berg stated, citing the senator’s use of a birth certificate from the state of Hawaii verified as a forgery by three independent document forensic experts, the issue of ‘multi-citizenship with responsibilities owed to and allegiance to other countries’ remains on the table.
In the lawsuit, Berg states that Sen. Obama was born in Kenya, and not in Hawaii as the senator maintains. Before giving birth, according to the lawsuit, Obama’s mother traveled to Kenya with his father but was prevented from flying back to Hawaii because of the late stage of her pregnancy, ‘apparently a normal restriction to avoid births during a flight.’ As Sen. Obama’s own paternal grandmother, half-brother and half-sister have also claimed, Berg maintains that Stanley Ann Dunham–Obama’s mother–gave birth to little Barack in Kenya and subsequently flew to Hawaii to register the birth.
Berg cites inconsistent accounts of Sen. Obama’s birth, including reports that he was born at two separate hospitals–Kapiolani Hospital and Queens Hospital–in Honolulu, as well a profound lack of birthing records for Stanley Ann Dunham, though simple ‘registry of birth’ records for Barack Obama are available in a Hawaiian public records office.
Should Sen. Obama truly have been born in Kenya, Berg writes, the laws on the books at the time of his birth hold that U.S. citizenship may only pass to a child born overseas to a U.S. citizen parent and non-citizen parent if the former was at least 19 years of age. Sen. Obama’s mother was only 18 at the time. Therefore, because U.S. citizenship could not legally be passed on to him, Obama could not be registered as a ‘natural born’ citizen and would therefore be ineligible to seek the presidency pursuant to Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution.
Moreover, even if Sen. Obama could have somehow been deemed ‘natural born,’ that citizenship was lost in or around 1967 when he and his mother took up residency in Indonesia, where Stanley Ann Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian citizen. Berg also states that he possesses copies of Sen. Obama’s registration to Fransiskus Assisi School In Jakarta, Indonesia which clearly show that he was registered under the name ‘Barry Soetoro’ and his citizenship listed as Indonesian.
The Hawaiian birth certificate, Berg says, is a forgery. In the suit, the attorney states that the birth certificate on record is a forgery, has been identified as such by three independent document forensic experts, and actually belonged to Maya Kasandra Soetoro, Sen. Obama’s half-sister.
‘Voters donated money, goods and services to elect a nominee and were defrauded by Sen. Obama’s lies and obfuscations,’ Berg stated. ‘If the DNC officers … had performed one ounce of due diligence we would not find ourselves in this emergency predicament, one week away from making a person the nominee who has lost their citizenship as a child and failed to even perform the basic steps of regaining citizenship as prescribed by constitutional laws.’
UPDATE 1: According to Michelle Obama, the fix is already in
From Judi McLeod of the Canada Free Press
Like editors the world over used to admonish reporters at deadline: ”Your lead is buried down copy”, the lead in African Press Internationalâ€™s (APIâ€™s) ”Mrs. Obama decides enough is enough” comes well down copy:
”My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husbandâ€™s adoption by his step father. ” (Emphasis added).
In other words, according to the overzealous, youâ€™re-all-racists wife of candidate for presidency Barack Hussein Obama, the fix is already in.
The candidateâ€™s wife treated the Norway-based API as if it was already under the command of a Barack and Michelle-run White House.
With an arrogance that can only be described as stunning, Michelle Obama said API would earn an invite to hubbyâ€™s upcoming inauguration ceremony when he will be installed as the next President of the United States of America next year, if only they wrote a â€œgoodâ€ story.
In a good old fashioned hissy fit, Michelle Obama had picked up the phone to accuse API of colluding with American internet bloggers in an effort to bring down her husband, saying she had decided to call API because of what she termed, APIâ€™s help to spread rumours created by American bloggers and other racist media outlets in their efforts to damage a black manâ€™s name. She made plain her hopes that the African Media was mature enough to be in the front to give unwavering support to her husband, a man Africans should identify themselves with.
‘When API told her that our online news media was only replaying what the American Bloggers and other media outlets had discovered through their investigations, Mrs. Obama was angered and she came out loud with the following: ”African Press International is supposed to support Africans and (the) African-American view, and she went (on) to state that, ”It is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband.” (africanpress, Oct. 15, 2008). ”There is no shame in being adopted by a step father. All dirt has been thrown onto my husbandâ€™s face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husbandâ€™s adoption by his step father, The important thing here is where my husbandâ€™s heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that my husband loves this country and his adoption has never changed his love for this country. He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that gives him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner , (emphasis added) says Michelle Obama on telefon (sic) to API.”
The person on the other end of the telephone line indicated concern for ‘the American man Dr. Corsi, who was recently reported to have been arrested in Kenya because there was fear that he might reveal information on Obama when he wanted to hold a press conference in Nairobi.
When API asked Mrs. Obama to comment on why Dr. Corsi was arrested by the Kenyan government and whether she thought Kenyaâ€™s Prime Minister Mr. Raila Odinga was involved in Dr. Corsiâ€™s arrest, she got irritated and simply told API not to dig that which will support evil people who are out to stop her husband from getting the presidency.
When asked who she was referring to as the evil people, she stated that she was not going to elaborate much on that but that many conservative white people and even some African Americans were against her husband, but that this group of blacks were simply doing so because of envy.
On Farakhan and his ministry, Mrs. Obama told API that it was unfortunate that Mr. Farrakhan came out the way he did supporting her husband openly before the elections (sic) was over. That was not wholehearted support but one that was calculated to convince the American people that my husband will support the growth of Muslim faith if he became the president, adding â€˜even if my husband was able to prove that he is not a Muslim, he will not be believed by those who have come out strongly to destroy his chances of being the next President. ”Do real people expect someone to deny a religion when 80 percent of his relatives are Muslims?â€™” Mrs. Obama asked.
UPDATE 2:Â Telephone recordings of Michelle Obama’s call is now being cleared for release
API has recordings of the conversation between API and Mrs Obama (Shocking development: Mrs Obama decides enough is enough: â€œMy husband was born in Hawaii and adopted by his step father, does that make him unpatriotic; she asksâ€, on a direct telephone to API. , and we confirm that the audio will be released to the public.
Plaintiff Philip J. Berg alleged in a lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania that Defendant Barack Obama is not eligible for the Office of the President because Obama lost his U.S. citizenship when his mother married an Indonesian citizen and naturalized in Indonesia. Plaintiff further alleged that Obama followed her naturalization and failed to take an oath of allegiance when he turned 18 years old to regain his U.S. citizenship status.
A lawsuit has been filed with the Pennsylvania Eastern District Court requiring Mr. Obama to produce documents to prove he is constitutionally qualified to run for President. So far Mr. Obama has refused to produce the documents and is trying to fight the court order to produce the documents. Any American should be able to prove citizenship in less than a day.Â Why can’t Mr. Obama?
A constitutional crisis will rip our country apart. If this is not cleared up now we will have a crisis. If you care at all about America you must call for Mr. Obama to produce the documents and prove that he is eligible to be President.Â Â Thousands of people have already signed a petition asking their representatives to push this matter.
Please call on Mr. Obama to produce the documents to prove his constitutional qualifications.
UPDATE 3:Â Obama Refuses to Answer Birth Certificate Lawsuit (NewsMax)
October 24th, 2008
A Pennsylvania lawsuit alleging that Barack Obama is not a ”natural-born citizen” of the United States took an unusual twist this week, after a federally mandated deadline requiring Obamaâ€™s lawyers to produce a ”vault” copy of his birth certificate expired with no response from Obama or his lawyers.
The lawsuit, filed by former Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General Philip J. Berg â€” a self-avowed supporter of Hillary Clinton â€” alleges that Barack Obama was born in Kenya and is thus â€œineligibleâ€ to run for president of the United States. It demands that Obamaâ€™s lawyers produce a copy of his original birth certificate to prove that he is a natural-born U.S. citizen.
Berg’s suit and allegations have set off a wave of Internet buzz and rumors, though Obama could easily have put the matter to rest by providing the federal court with the basic documentation proving he is eligible to take the oath of a president. But Obama has apparently decided to deny the court and the public that documentation.
The Constitution provides that any U.S. citizen is eligible to become president if the person is 35 years of age or older and is a natural-born citizen; that is, born in the territorial United States.
By failing to respond to the Request for Admissions and Request for the Production of Documents within 30 days, Obama has â€œadmittedâ€ that he was born in Kenya, Berg stated this week in new court filings.

UPDATE 5: Obama’s Trip to Hawaii to ‘Visit Grandma’ is really to fight the suit
October 29th, 2008
Andy Martin recently filed suit in Hawaii demanding that the State turn over Obama’s Birth Certificate, His claim is that Obama is really in Hawaii to fight the suit.
Source Israel Insider ”Barack H. Obama II has suspended his involvement in his campaign for at least two days to go to Hawaii, purportedly to visit his ailing grandmother.
But the sudden trip to the 50th state coincides with an aggressive campaign by Obama nemesis Andy Martin to legally compel Hawaiian authorities to release birth records that Obama has refused to make public. And, in a separate Federal Circuit Court case filed by Philip Berg in Pennsylvania to force Obama and the Democratic National Committee to prove that the candidate is in fact a ”natural born citizen,” Obama and the DNC have failed to respond within a federally-mandated 30 day period, opening the door to a procedural argument that failure to respond represents an admission of the plaintiff’s claims that the Democratic nominee is a Kenyan and/or Indonesian citizen, but not a ”natural born” citizen of the United States.
The sudden Obama decision to visit Hawaii has triggered broad skepticism, coming as it does in the critical last two week of the close election campaign. Obama’s 85-year-old maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, was first brought into the campaign when he sought to show that she, as a ”typical white woman”, held what the candidate claimed were racist fears of aggressive black men. He brought her up in the context of saying that he could not disown her — despite her alleged racism — any more than he could disown his pastor of twenty years, Jeremiah Wright. Obama visited her only very briefly during his summer vacation in Hawaii, and he didn’t visit her when she was in a Honolulu hospital last week. There is no indication that her condition is life-threatening.
But Andy Martin, an anti-Obama columnist, says the real reason for Obama’s emergency trip is to stop his own pursuit of birth records, including an emergency writ to the Hawaii Supreme Court to request expedited handling after a previous filing to demand that the State’s Department of Health release the records. ”Obama did not pay any attention to his grandmother until I showed up in Honolulu,” he wrote in an email. ”Suddenly she is the center of his attention. She is so central to his campaign that he has suspended it! But when Obama was here last summer he only visited his grandmother for an hour. One hour! Now he suspends his campaign for her?”
The Berg-initiated legal action is also pressing the Obama campaign. On September 15, as part of his federal lawsuit contending that the Illinois senator is ineligible, pursuant to the U.S. Constitution, to serve as president of the United States, Philadelphia attorney Philip Berg served Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee with a request for admission, which, on October 6, Barack Obama and the DNC acknowledged getting but then attempted to persuade the court to stay discovery and to dismiss the suit. However, Federal Rules require that a response to a request for admissions be served within the 30-day time limit, and Barack Obama and the DNC have not done so.
Therefore, this morning, Berg is filing two motions in district court in Philadelphia: a motion requesting an immediate order deeming his request for admissions served upon Barack Obama and the DNC on September 15 admitted by default, and a motion requesting an expedited ruling and/or hearing on Bergâ€™s motion deeming the request for admissions served upon Obama and the DNC admitted. Berg contends that the failure to respond and serve the response within the time limit is ”damning.”
”They did not file answers or objections or anything else to the request for admissions we served upon them on September 15,” Berg said. ”They knew the admissions were due. They knew they must object or answer specifically in 30 days. Here, they did nothing.”
The admissions that Berg asserts Barack Obama and the DNC have, at least procedurally, admitted to, include the following:
-Admit you were born in Kenya .
-Admit you are a Kenya ”natural born” citizen.
-Admit your foreign birth was registered in the State of Hawaii .
-Admit your father, Barrack Hussein Obama, Sr., admitted Paternity of you.
-Admit your mother gave birth to you in Mombasa , Kenya .
-Admit your mother’s maiden name is Stanley Ann Dunham a/k/a Ann Dunham.
-Admit the COLB [Certification of Live Birth] posted on the website ”Fightthesmears.com” is a forgery.
-Admit you were adopted by a Foreign Citizen.
-Admit you were adopted by Lolo Soetoro, M.A. a citizen of Indonesia .
-Admit you were not born in Hawaii .
-Admit you are a citizen of Indonesia .
-Admit you never took the ”Oath of Allegiance” to regain your U.S. Citizenship status.
-Admit you are not a ”natural born” United States citizen.
-Admit your senior campaign staff is aware you are not a ”natural born” United States Citizen.
-Admit the United States Constitution does not allow for a Person to hold the office of President of the United States unless that person is a ”natural born” United States citizen.
-Admit you are ineligible pursuant to the United States Constitution to serve as President and/or Vice President of the United States.
It is not at all clear that the actions by Berg in Federal court and Martin in Hawaii will be ruled on before the election, but both men have vowed to pursue their cases even after the election if necessary. Berg has said that he would drop his case if Obama simply provides documentary proof of his birth, but to date the candidate has not done so, instead releasing only images of a purported ”certification of live birth” to the partisan Daily Kos blog and the sympathetic FactCheck web site.
UPDATE 6: Obama’s “Official” Birth Certificate Finally Found (Funny)
November 4th, 2008
Obama’s grandmother claims to have been present when the Barack Hussein Obama was born in Kenya, making him ineligible to serve as President. But even if Obama is elected, we may yet avoid a Constitutional crisis.Â His genuine Hawaiian birth certificate has at last been released:
UPDATE 7: Obama’s Travel to Pakistan in 1981
June 5th, 2009
While I’ve little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue,Â I believe the American people deserve an answer and IÂ believe the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question:
What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and Karachi ?
How did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981, without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later?Â And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and Karachi , what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs and Immigration?Â The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, theyÂ mustÂ have answers.
It makes the debate over Obama’s citizenship a rather short and simple one.
Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
A: Yes, by his own admission.
Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities:
- He traveled with a U.S. Passport,
- He traveled with a British passport, or
- He traveled with an Indonesia passport.
Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
A: No. It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S State Department’s “no travel” list in 1981.
Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport.
If he was traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. And if he was traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.
Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a “natural born” American citizen between 1981 and 2008.. Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.
Count me in as one of those inquiring minds who’d at least like to know the answers to these easily answered (by Obama) questions.
