Whether you agree or not with everything that Philip J Berg believes,
the man deserves a lot of credit for his efforts to hold Barack
Obama accountable in regard to presidential eligibility. Likewise,
Jeff Schreiber, a law student,legal writer and blog owner has done
a great job of covering the Philip J Berg lawsuits. Here are some
exerpts from questions Jeff Schreiber asked of Mr. Berg:
Jeff Schreiber reports:
Questions and answers with Philip J Berg.
“As an aside, despite the way he is painted by supporters and detractors alike,
and despite his views on the attacks of September 11, 2001–which I absolutely
abhor and he knows it–I’ve always found Berg to be rational and to be gracious.
I spoke with him this weekend, and this is the result.”
“You filed a new lawsuit last week. Tell me about it.
This lawsuit is an interpleader action, and the reason we went this way is
because an interpleader action will shift the burden of proof to Barack Obama.
Notice that we didn’t sue Obama, though. We sued Barry Soetoro, mainly because
we believe that is his real name. We’ve seen no documentation showing that he
has changed his name from Soetoro to Obama. So, when he was registering himself
in all of the states—and there are 50 states, Barack—he was registering with
the wrong name. That’s fraud. His name was Barry Soetoro when he was adopted in
Indonesia, and nothing shows that it has been changed since.
Take for example if I adopt someone from Kenya, if I adopt a girl from Kenya,
she would take my last name, Berg. And, if anything changed in the future, if
she wanted to use another name for any reason, she would have to legally change
“Tell me about Col. Hollister.
Col. Hollister, the plaintiff, is a retired Air Force colonel, he’s about 52
years old or so, and served this country from 1978 to 1998 before being honorably
discharged. During that time, when he served this country, he swore to protect
America against all enemies foreign and domestic – which is interesting because,
right now, we may have a domestic crisis going on.
Hollister contacted us. He’s not the only military man we’ve had contact us in
hopes to help. We’ve had quite a few who, over the past few months, called to offer
their support. He called us because he is perplexed. Here he is, on the Individual
Ready Reserve—meaning that he is able, that he is subject to Presidential recall
now and for the rest of his life—and he sees what’s going on across the world and
he’s perplexed as to whether he could, if called up to serve again, follow orders
from a Commander in Chief who may or may not be constitutionally eligible for that
position. If Obama is sworn in on January 20th, if he takes that Oath of Office,
he is usurping the powers of the president of the United States. And, when the
truth comes out, and it will, it will mean that all of Obama’s laws and orders will
be deemed invalid and will come back.
So Col. Hollister is perplexed. If he is called up, he has a duty to obey lawful
orders from the Commander in Chief and on down the chain of command. And he would
also have a duty to disobey unlawful orders. He took an Oath of Enlistment to fight
for and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, but he’s
confused because he doesn’t know who these duties will be owed to if Obama is sworn
in. Is he qualified to be Commander in Chief? What if he was born in Kenya? What if
he is an illegal alien?”
“Speaking of timing, what do you think is the significance of January 9th? Is it
significant? Why do you think you were the first case into the Supreme Court, but
the last case out?
I don’t want to say anything to blow it, you know, but I think we’ve got a great shot.
They could have thrown us out weeks ago. January 9th could very well be a significant
day in all of this, because Obama will actually be president elect instead of
On November 4th, he just got the popular votes. We tried to show that he shouldn’t
have been on the ballot so we could avoid a constitutional crisis, but that obviously
didn’t work. On December 15th, he just got the electoral votes. We pushed to stop
that vote but were obviously unsuccessful. Those votes will be counted on Thursday,
and barring anything drastic like a congressman standing up to protect, he will
finally be President-Elect Barack Obama.”
“Let’s say for a moment that it works. Obama is deemed ineligible. What next for the
country? What next for you?
I don’t know. It depends upon when Barack Obama is declared ineligible. If it happens
before Thursday, it means one thing. If it happens after Thursday but before January
20th, it means another thing. If it happens after January 20th, it appears that Biden
would be president, but who knows? After all, he was selected by someone who shouldn’t
have been running for president and selecting vice presidents in the first place.
I just hope and pray, every night, for calm and peace in this country, and if Obama is
found to be unqualified, I would urge political and cultural leaders to come forth with
something like a national broadcast and appeal for peace. This was Barack Obama’s doing,
this was caused by one man, and nobody else. In fact, Barack Obama himself come out and
say “I’m proud to have made history on November 4th, in getting more votes than anybody
else, but because of some issues with my past, I have no choice but to step down.” And
he should appeal for peace and calm.”
