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

The MSM has failed the American public. Philip J Berg is a Democrat who tried to provide information to the Democratic Delegates before the convention, and because of a lack of coverage by the MSM and pressure from the DNC and the likes of Nancy Pelosi to push the nomination of Obama, was unable to affect the nomination. However, Mr. Berg is still trying to prevent a constitutional crisis and is moving ahead with the lawsuit. Obama has been served and must respond by September 24, 2008. Many commenters on this blog have questioned the motives of the lawsuit. Jeff Schreiber, who studies law and writes articles on his excellent blog site, interviewed Philip J Berg on August 23, 2008. Here are some exerpts from this must read interview:
“Saturday, August 23, 2008
A Conversation with Philip J. Berg, Esq.
Fairly late yesterday evening, I had the opportunity to speak with Philip Berg, the Philadelphia attorney who filed suit against Illinois senator Barack Obama in Federal Court in Philadelphia, questioning the constitutional eligibility of his candidacy for president.”
“I have had no direct or indirect contact with anyone on the Hillary Clinton campaign. Did I help her in the primaries? Yes. Was I in favor of her over Obama? Yes. What did I do? I contributed some money and made some phone calls to various states for her. Other than that, I attended one Montgomery County [PA] Democratic Committee dinner at which her daughter spoke, though for the record, Obama’s representative was also at the same function. So, am I closely involved with them? No.
And as I told you this afternoon, even among those who helped me prepare for this case, while I know they may be against Obama’s violation of the Constitution, I do not even know nor have I asked where they stand politically.”
“That, and he had an excuse for everything. His phony responses to the Rev. [Jeremiah] Wright issue turned me off. He said “I never knew what he was like.” He was a member of that church for twenty years. Twenty years! When the story first broke, he went on all of the television and cable stations and claimed he was never in the pew when Rev. Wright made any of these remarks. By the time he made his speech in Philadelphia days later—a speech that the mainstream media agreed might have been the best in the history of the world—he did a complete turnabout and admitted that he was in the pew at the time of the remarks. At what point is enough, enough?”
“I chalk much of his success up to the influence and agenda setting of the mainstream media. Speaking of which, are you happy with the coverage which the mainstream press has given your civil action?
Well, no. First of all, the mainstream media hasn’t covered it yet. I’m doing an interview with a journalist tomorrow morning at 10:00 who says he’ll be able to get it out into the mainstream media.”
“Of course some people might look at me and assume I’m doing this because he’s black. I’m not. I’m Jewish, and I’m a life-long member of the NAACP, so people will be hard-pressed to confront me on any of those issues.”
“Look, the truth comes down to this — at this point in time, it’s time to fish or cut bait, time to stop pussy-footing around. At this point in time, Obama owes it to people to produce the documents. If I’m wrong, even if he doesn’t want to handle it himself and has the person in charge of his campaign communications come out and say, “here is the vault copy of the birth certificate, here is the certified copy of his oath of allegiance from when he came back from Indonesia, this issue should be put to bed and Mr. Berg should withdraw his suit immediately or we’ll sue him to high heaven,” then I’m wrong. If they do not do that within the next day or so, then I know we’re right. If they let the case linger, then I believe we’re right. The challenge I’ve made to them is that, if they don’t produce these documents, then we know they’re wrong.”
“In terms of credibility, my very successful record in big cases shows some of that. I’m the only attorney in the country to defeat “cell phone” legislation in Hilltown Township, Bucks County, PA, meant to ban the use of hand-held cell phones while behind the wheel of a car, and did that pro bono. I have also represented PAWS—Performing Animal Welfare Society—in California, pro bono, protecting the rights of abused circus elephants, and was extremely successful in that case. My record, over the years, is such that I can stand on my own two feet in front of anyone.”
