Philip J Berg update, September 25, 2008, Response to motions to dismiss, Radio interview, MommaE Bloktalkradio, Constitutional Crisis, standing with the complaint, amended complaint, respond in 5 days

Philip J Berg has provided updates regarding his plans after Obama and
the DNC filed motions to dismiss the lawsuit. Mr. Berg released a press
release last night, discussed the matter with Jeff Schreiber and
was interviewed tonight, Thursday, September 25, 2008, on the MommaE Blogtalkradio show.

Here are some exerpts from Philip J Berg’s press release:

“For Immediate Release: – 09/24/08
Obama & DNC Hide Behind Legal Issues While Betraying Public in not Producing a Certified Copy of Obama’s “Vault” Birth Certificate and Oath of Allegiance.
Country is Headed to a Constitutional Crisis”
“Berg stated that a response will be made in the next few days to their Motion to Dismiss.”
“Berg again stressed his position regarding the urgency of this case as, “we” the people, are heading to a “Constitutional Crisis” if this case is not resolved forthwith.”
From the conversation between Philip J Berg and Jeff Schreiber:
“”Note, Jeff, that they waited until just before the deadline to file this, note that they’re just trying to prolong it and not deal with the issue,” he said. “It’s funny that on a day that McCain has stated that he’s suspending his campaign and wants the upcoming debate canceled so America can talk about the economic crisis, Obama says that he can campaign and talk it out at the same time, yet how come he’s not talking about his birth certificate?

How come he’s hiding behind technical rules?”

“If you’re not qualified to be there,” Berg said, “get off the stage at this point in the game. Every day that goes by, every step that he takes to avoid showing those documents, which I don’t believe exist, indicates to me that he’s not natural-born.””

“”Don’t get me wrong,” he said. “I believe we have established standing with the complaint we filed, but also we’re going to add a few clauses which will clarify our standing to sue.”

At the heart of one of those clauses, he said, is the United States Code, specifically 8 U.S.C. § 1481(b), the use of which appears to be aimed at Berg’s allegation that, if Obama did have U.S. Citizenship, he relinquished it upon moving with his mother to Indonesia and never regained it. 8 U.S.C.

§ 1481(b) states that whenever the loss of citizenship is at issue with regard to a civil action presumably such as this, the burden of proof is placed on the party bringing the action–in this case, Berg–to establish the claim by preponderance of the evidence.

§ 1481. Loss of nationality by native-born or naturalized citizen; voluntary action; burden of proof; presumptions

(b) Whenever the loss of United States nationality is put in issue in any action or proceeding commenced on or after September 26, 1961 under, or by virtue of, the provisions of this chapter or any other Act, the burden shall be upon the person or party claiming that such loss occurred, to establish such claim by a preponderance of the evidence. Any person who commits or performs, or who has committed or performed, any act of expatriation under the provisions of this chapter or any other Act shall be presumed to have done so voluntarily, but such presumption may be rebutted upon a showing, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the act or acts committed or performed were not done voluntarily.
Simply put, to prove something “by a preponderance of the evidence,” the party bearing the burden of proof must simply convince a judge or jury that the facts are more probably one way than the other. Regardless, Berg reads 8 U.S.C. § 1481(b) as providing him with “the right to question anyone’s status as a citizen,” I imagine, so long as he can satisfy the burden of proof.

Berg insists that, rather than wait the full 20 days to respond, he’ll likely file his amended complaint on Monday. Besides containing the aforementioned additional clauses and arguments, Berg mentioned that he will likely withdraw suit against the Federal Election Commission–they’re more concerned about the financial aspect of the election, he says–and add Pennsylvania’s Secretary of the Commonwealth, Pedro Cortes, to the action for his role as overseer of the electoral process in the Keystone State.

“He’s the one that puts a person on the ballot,” Berg said. “In this case, that person’s not a citizen, he doesn’t meet the qualifications, and he doesn’t belong on the ballot.””
From the MommaE Blogtalkradio interview:

Mr. Berg read his press release. He then stated that he received a call
from the court requesting a response in 5 days (the normal time for
response is 14 days). Mr. Berg is also waiting on a ruling on his
motion for expedited discovery. He stated he would be happy if Obama
is required to produce a vault version of Obama’s birth certificate
and a pledge of allegiance to the US. Mr. Berg went on to say that
he does not believe that Obama can produce a valid birth certificate
since Obama was born in Kenya. Mr. Berg stressed the urgency of the
lawsuit and that he is prepared to take the case to the Supreme Court
of the US. The FEC must be reserved and he is waiting until financing comes to the forefront.

  1. Berg’s points about Obama not producing the vault copy of his BC or citizenship papers are totally irrelevant for this suit to go forward.

    The only thing that matters is that Berg must convince the court that Berg has standing in the court and that he has been harmed by Obama to which Berg’s lawsuit asks for redress.

    Obama may in fact not be a citizen or born in America but all of that is irrelevant for the suit to go forward.

    If the courts allowed Bush and Cheney both from Texas in violation of the constitution to be on the ballot as President and VP there is no reason to assume that the courts won’t allow a non-US citizen to run for the Presidency as long as the MSM and the public don’t make a big deal about it.

  2. Take a look at TD blog:

    She has an article showing Obama’s admission to being a Dual Citizen of Kenya at birth (here):


    “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.

    Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.”

    Mr. Berg should use that fact that Senator Obama campaigned in Kenya and interfered (a complaint was filed by the Kenyan Govt) in their Presidential elections on behalf of his cousin/uncle Ralia Odinga.

    Doesn’t this prove that he has had dual allegiances?

  3. hill4pres.
    That is possible.
    However, the triangle and vouching for a fake COLB does not help the case for Obama being born in Hawaii.
    I agree with Berg. Obama was born in Kenya.

    Thanks for the update. Have a Great Day! I put this up elsewhere. Zach

  5. I just hope all of this comes out before he gets into office. This man and his cronies scare the bejeebies out of me. So many people do not get it about him. They just follow along like sheep. Pray hard through God’s will that he will not become President.

  6. How is it unconstitutional for Bush and Cheney to be from the same state? Washington and his VP were from Va as was Jefferson and his Vp? There is historical precedent, so I am curious thanks all.

  7. Residency limitations

    The Constitution also prohibits electors from voting for both a presidential and vice-presidential candidate from the same state as themselves. In theory, this might deny a vice-presidential candidate with the most electoral votes the absolute majority required to secure election, even if the presidential candidate is elected, and place the vice-presidential election in the hands of the Senate. In practice, this is rarely an issue, as parties avoid nominating tickets containing two candidates from the same state. In one notable case, former Wyoming congressman Dick Cheney had moved to Texas to serve as CEO of Halliburton Company, but reclaimed residency at his Wyoming home before accepting the 2000 Republican nomination for vice president, alongside presidential nominee and Texas governor George W. Bush.

  8. I am grateful for P. Berg for putting his life on the line to save our country from this frightening Muslim leader with so many shady associations. Why is it that more national publications have not run this truly disturbing story? Everyone needs to forward the pertinent info to all email contacts and hope that NOBAMA goes away forever.

  9. Fox News just FINALLY had Stanley Kurtz on about the Obama-Ayres connection.
    Why can’t Peter Berg get this urgent Constitutional issue on the MAIN STREAM TV and NewsRadio??

    Call Sean Hannity!
