And I see no evidence that his "foreign counterparts view him as weak". Is that derived from the reverse psychology where al Qaeda endorsed McCain?

Funniest thing I've ever read. "Oh, al Qaeda endorsed McCain? Must be reverse psychology."

It was announced yesterday October 25th that an appeal was made to the Supreme Court for an expidited hearing on the case. It could be taken up as early as this week, or just after the genaeral election but before the electorial college gets the chance to vote. This was what happened in the Bush V Gore case in 2000.

The issue will be twofold. Does the Plaintiff have standing as a citizen under the US Constitution to demand proof of qualification by any person wanting to be elected president. And if so, that the Court find for the Plaintiff and command Barack Hussein Obama to immediately release his actual vault version of his original birth certificate for examination and clarification as proof of US citizenship.

Don't know, haven't looked for that. I doubt it. Seems like that would be dangerous to do.

IMO, unfortunately, Berg will not have a "standing" until Obama is inaugurated.
Seems to me this should be done by the FEC..LOL....Uhhh, maybe the Party?

The State Department does it. He just isn't satisfied with their decision (which is fine with me).

Just pointing out that he has gone through the hoops, Berg just wants to see proof of it.

I am sure the DOS employees are having a ball with it....And, i agree, with my personal experience, not a good idea unless cloaked...


Any Anonymous ATS'ers that are MSM journalists that can do it with limited protection?

According to the Judge that dismissed the case, Berg only has standing once the election takes place. The founding fathers put a space of time between the general election and the electorial college vote. Just winning the popular vote does not make him president. Only the electorial college can elect a president. Berg will have standing right after the general election, and that's when it will be decided. Case support for court action in that time frame can be seen with Bush V Gore 2000. The founding fathers were wise to put some time between the general vote and the electorial college.

OBAMA HAS SHOWN HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE UNLIKE MCCAIN! So, Obama shows it, McCain doesn't. Obama shows he was born in America. McCain... born in Panama. He's the one who can't prove he's an American citizen.

You know what would be great, if Berg brought an action against both of them and it was found that neither was eligible for POTUS. One can only dream...

Actually, I just watched a video posted on the ATS as "The October Surprise" where Berg says McCain has shown his actual birth certifcate plus all of his medical records. Obama has not done either.

Berg is full of crap. He's not referring to McCain having shown his documents in court, because McCain has not shown them in court. The cases against him were dismissed for the same reasons that the case against Obama was dismissed. Inability for the plaintiff to show an INJURY IN FACT.

NOPE, your counter is pure illogical conjecture. Obama, or his lawyers, chose to get the lawsuit dismissed in a foolish manner, the longer more dificult route. The easier, more sure route would have been to produce the legal birth certificate, and prove that the grounds on which the lawsuit were brought have no merit. Now, the lawsuit can carry on to the supreme court, and possibly be brought again should Obama become president elect.

Not getting this lawsuit dismissed by producing the legal birth certificate was either extremely foolish, or a stall tactic. Either the Obama camp isn't very bright, or Obama isn't a naturalized citizen of the U.S., which means either he shouldn't be POTUS, or he is ineligable to be POTUS.

McCain has already proven himself. McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone at a U.S. Army hospital. McCain had legal experts vet his constitutional qualifications, and he also disclosed a copy of his birth certificate. I don't understand why Obama refuses to prove himself to the American people. Sounds guilty to me.

Oh gee, the lawsuit has been dismissed due to lack of evidence and reason from Mr Berg... what a surprise...



*yawn*

I believe THIS is the McCain birth certificate you are referring to.. But even if he really was born in panama on that date, he would still be an American citizen by law. I posted this in a different thread, but this is basically why..

the following is quoted from a poster named "Hunter" on THIS website and the post is dated " 2008-01-31 18:11:57"


United States Code
Title 8 Aliens and Nationality
CHAPTER 12 - IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY
SUBCHAPTER III - NATIONALITY AND NATURALIZATION
Article PART I - NATIONALITY AT BIRTH AND COLLECTIVE NATURALIZATION
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.


The point, in my view, isn't whether or not they are citizens but rather why this is being brought up now at all.. The answer is that this whole thing has its roots in an increasingly desperate Republican party that doesn't exactly like the idea of Democrats having the white house while at the same time having a majority in the Senate. It compromises everything the Republican party has worked so hard on over the past 20-30 years in which the Republicans have had all the power.

But what we need is change.. And I think people have finally seen how McCain isn't really the man everyone thought he was. He makes almost as many speech errors as Bush.. And after all that the McCain campaign has gone through to get to this point they probably feel their chances slipping away. And not only their chances. It doesn't help that McCain's campaign is easily one of the worst run campaigns ever. People see that Obama has the temperment and intelligence to get things done that need to get done. If Obama wins the presidency, which he probably will, George W. Bush will go down in history as not only the worst president in American history but also the singular reason for the fall of Republican power in Washington.

OK. One more time. The JUDGE did NOT RULE that OBAMA had to SHOW HIS DOCUMENTS to BERG. The JUDGE DISMISSED the CASE.

As one lawyer commented, BERG had NO LEGAL RIGHT to the DOCUMENTS. So OBAMA was NOT REQUIRED to PRODUCE THEM to BERG'S RELIEF.

Now -- if you want to persist in your silliness, do so to your own discredit, and demise. Talk when the cops say talk. Talk when lawyers who are against you say talk. And you will surely hang yourself.

What you should do is hunt down that video that exists here on ATS that informs you why the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution is very important for all US citizens to understand. If you have seen it, watch it again. And if you've watched it twice or more times already, watch it again.

Like you or Berg would be able to declare Obama eligible or not eligible to run for POTUS, simply by him showing you his birth certificate. Neither you or Berg have any legal authority to judge Obama on that. And neither of you have a legal resource of what "natural born" means to support the judgment.

So -- cut the crap.

Uh, no, he hasn't. Not the one Berg is looking for. Berg is looking for a VAULTED copy of the ORIGINAL birth certificate, not the one presented to the masses.

And Berg has Obama's grandmother, ON TAPE, asserting to the fact that she was IN THE DELIVERY ROOM IN KENYA when and where Obama was born.

It's funny how you guys supporting Obama are so willing to dismiss that piece of evidence and wave it away, saying "well she must be mistaken, because we have a birth certificate that Obama himself presented to us!".

Uh, yeah. Think about it for a second, folks ... try to think about it without your emotions for just one second ... if the man was trying to pull a fast one on America, he would present a fake birth certificate, agreed? So if his very citizenship is being called into question, why are you so ready to believe the man himself, the one accused of fraud, instead of one of his family members who has nothing to gain from all of this?

Don't you think a thorough investigation is called for to clear up the matter once and for all?

Honestly, the intelligence level of some of you people is what I call into question, here.

Yes Berg is unsatisfied with the real authentic birth certificate Obama presented so now he wants to make a big hoofa out of it a demand more!

The ORIGINAL birth certificate has been presented, the only people who refuse to believe its the ORIGINAL are rightwing folk and disgruntled hill supporters alike. Yes.. this is a real "concern" about his certificate.. not some partisan BS on the right again



And Berg has Obama's grandmother, ON TAPE, asserting to the fact that she was IN THE DELIVERY ROOM IN KENYA when and where Obama was born.


Not too long ago you folks claimed that there was a "whitey tape".. then not long after that it was the rumor about Obama dumping Biden for Hillary. I mean I think the sources of these little claims, from word of mouth or from partisan slanted sources that is, aint the best way to make an arguement against a candidate. You just wound up making yourself look like an idiot for so readily believing it.... again


Even if there was a tape it wouldnt do much because first of all Obama has only come into contact with his relatives recently. All of them, including his grandmother, had only met him for the first time in 2005/2006. She hardly knows him and his childhood, he hardly knows her and his half brothers and cousins, his been living in a different world to them. The claim that somehow she having any say in where he was born is just well... not enough.


It's funny how you guys supporting Obama are so willing to dismiss that piece of evidence and wave it away,


What evidence? All we see are rightwingers going on about his birth certificate claiming all kinds of things but not actually proving anything. What we should believe what the rightwing blogs and the rumors say?
come on now sos... we all know this is just more partisan BS...



saying "well she must be mistaken, because we have a birth certificate that Obama himself presented to us!"
Ill still get a good nights sleep knowing whether or not rightwingers believe Obamas birth certificate is authentic.


Think about it for a second, folks ... try to think about it without your emotions for just one second ... if the man was trying to pull a fast one on America, he would present a fake birth certificate, agreed? So if his very citizenship is being called into question, why are you so ready to believe the man himself, the one accused of fraud, instead of one of his family members who has nothing to gain from all of this?


First off we only see members from the right (and ofcourse afew disgruntled hill supporters) make out that his birth certificat is fake. What makes it worse you fellas dont seem to provide any evidence as to whether he born outside the US, all we have are a bunch of rightwing blogs claiming this and that and anti-Obamanians shooting their heads off.

Who are you to tell us "we are letting our emotions get in the way" when this is all I see on the right when it comes to this birth certificate stuff? Give it a break.


Don't you think a thorough investigation is called for to clear up the matter once and for all?


Newsflash, a thorough investigation has been carried out, numerous times. You folks will never admit anything though because you have allowed your anger and partisan BS towards the man to cloud your judgement. I mean seriously now if an obama supporter came up to you and told you that mccain is too old to run for president despite the medical records the man has sent out, would you just readily take it as true?? Nope, its just more partisan BS.

This man has been running for president for TWO years, its HIGHLY likely his had the Hillary campaign, the CIA, FBI, the Bush administration and ofcourse the McCain campaign look into whether his a citizen or not. I am pritty darn sure they would have found something, but they came up with nothing. This rumor is the last defense rightwingers have to get their candidate moving again, and it aint doing very well



Honestly, the intelligence level of some of you people is what I call into question, here.


Really now? You folks claim the mans a muslim, the anti-christ, a foreigner, a socialist commie, an anti-christian baby killer, a racist christian, african nationalist, elitist, mentally disturbed, america hating troop hating and a nazi??

What intelligence level does one have to be to believe in the bullcr*p been sent through these rightwing blogs a news outlets and word of mouth you folks got going on here? What "intelligence" level should one have to readily believe an individual that offers little more than he said she said? And not believe this has anything other than to do with ideology or politics?

The lawsuit has been dropped and Im not surprised. Propaganda doesnt hold strong in the face of the law.
