Philip J Berg filed a lawsuit in Philadephia Federal Court, and it
has been served on Barack Obama, DNC and FEC. The basis of the suit
Is not a natural-born citizen; and/or
Lost his citizenship when he was adopted in Indonesia; and/or
Has dual loyalties because of his citizenship with Kenya and Indonesia
Many commenters on this blog and throughout the country are confused about the laws regarding eligibility to be president and some believe that McCain is not eligible. He clearly is. However, the same is not true for Obama. It is apparent that Obama was born in Kenya.
The following was posted by Leeballz, a regular commenter on Citizen Wells. I would like to thank Leeballz again for all the help provided.
“Apparently I can’t post this enough:
US Code: Title 8, Section 1403.
Persons born in the Canal Zone or Republic of Panama on or after February 26, 1904
(a) Any person born in the Canal Zone on or after February 26, 1904, and whether before or after the effective date of this chapter, whose father or mother or both at the time of the birth of such person was or is a citizen of the United States, is declared to be a citizen of the United States.
(b) Any person born in the Republic of Panama on or after February 26, 1904, and whether before or after the effective date of this chapter, whose father or mother or both at the time of the birth of such person was or is a citizen of the United States employed by the Government of the United States or by the Panama Railroad Company, or its successor in title, is declared to be a citizen of the United States.
You are right that if Obama was born in Hawaii that he would be eligible. If he was borne outside of the U.S. (or outside of any U.S. controlled areas abroad like military bases) he would not be. Unless of course there is a law that did give him eligibility if borne abroad; like his mother being able to transfer that right to him. However, if he was a citizen and he moved to another country and received citizenship there, then he would have dual citizenship. As I mentioned above, I don’t think dual citizenship would disqualify him. I have dual citizenship, but was borne not 20 miles from Washington, D.C. I believe I would be eligible if I wanted to run. Again, though if the country that he took up residence in, required him to denounce or revoke his U.S. citizenship and he never reinstated it (if that’s even possible), then we have a huge problem over a rather small technicality. The huge problem is called “Precedent.” The funny thing with it is if you set it, then it is very hard to get rid of. I don’t think this office is one that needs to cause a constitutional crisis or constitutional amendment for one candidate.
So I think this lawsuit should be an easy thing for Obama to settle and if so, then he will gain many more votes from it. He should be excited to prove his citizenship because of that reason, yet he hasn’t publicly challenged it except for a disputed birth certificate on an obscure website. Why? Why hasn’t he produced the records from the hospital, I would presume he could have gotten them on his vacation. However, those who wish to think negatively of him will still see the possibility of forgery, but he can then disprove that too if that is false.
Questions are good, they provide answers.”
