Where is That Pesky Birth Certificate?

The Supreme Court and Obama’s Birth Certificate

At this point, Supreme Court Justice David Souter’s Clerk informed Philip J. Berg, the lawyer who brought the case against Obama, that his petition for an injunction to stay the November 4th election was denied, but the Clerk also required the defendants to respond to the Writ of Certiorari (which requires the concurrence of four Justices) by December 1. At that time, Mr. Obama must present to the Court an authentic birth certificate, after which Mr. Berg will respond.

If Obama fails to do that, it is sure to inspire the skepticism of the Justices, who are unaccustomed to being defied. They will have to decide what to do about a president-elect who refuses to prove his natural-born citizenship.

“I can see a unanimous Court (en banc) decertifying the election if Obama refuses to produce his birth certificate,” says Raymond S. Kraft, an attorney and writer. “They cannot do otherwise without abandoning all credibility as guardians of the Constitution. Even the most liberal justices, however loathe they may to do this, still consider themselves guardians of the Constitution. The Court is very jealous of its power - even over presidents, even over presidents-elect.”

Also remember that on December 13, the Electoral College meets to casts its votes. If it has been determined that Mr. Obama is an illegal alien and therefore ineligible to become President of the United States, the Electors will be duty-bound to honor the Constitution.

I confess I haven't been following this storyline because the powerful rarely seem to get their hands slapped. (Remember the question whether Rep. Robert Wexler had a legit residence in Florida which the Constitution demands?)

I'm very curious to see the produced document; I can't imagine Obama would spurn the instruction of the Court.

I have not put much stock in the birth certificate stories, mainly because he is obviously able to get a passport. I had to present a certified copy of my birth certificate but it has been several years since I got a passport.

I did check and there are only a few people who can get the certified copy per the State of Hawaii. But, basically, it has to be the applicant him/herself. For instance, I could not buy one, a news organization could not buy one, et cetera.

Here is a link to the Constitution provision on the requirement of American Citizenship.

Are we getting ready for a do over in January? George W Bush going to remain in a provisional Government?

Why wait till January calm everyone down now by submitting Birth Certificate make it a non issue.

Hmmmmm... it took an ACT of the SUPREME COURT to get this man to be forced to respond?? Well, I've already considered the matter and will be organizing and speaking toward consitutional secession from the United States of America on the basis of this man's failure to produce a birth certificate, illegal voting via ACORN, illegal campaign contributions, his statement he's going to push throuh Marxist socialism that our constitution sincerely does NOT allow (the federal government cannot separate people into classes and take from some to give to others - it's not constitutional - can't do Marxism constitutionally here... I'll do a blog on that).

Anyway, I am so HOT that this man who violated the Constitutional provisions and spirit of hte law in free and fair elections...and REFUSED to submit an original birth certificate... and and cannot be a Marxist "share the wealth" candidate and be a constitutional President... that I am dedicated to constitutional secession of states in response to his Presidency.

He has shown ZERO respect for the constitution and the rule of law, imo, AND the will of the people in refusing to submit that orig. birth certificate to the people (via Berg, etc.), ACORN voter fraud, campaign contributions which received illegal and foreign contributions with no checks and balances, and stating a Marxist socialist desire to redistribute wealth unconstitutionally.

I'm still FOR secession at this point. The only thing that will stop me is if he really was ruled ineligible. That would preserve this nation. Otherwise, watch and see... constitutional secession is going to go mainstream, imo. :)

I think this man, Obama, is dangerous to our liberties, etc. Too dictatorial thinking he's above the law and can break them and make the rules suit him and his desire to win by any menas possible, legal or illegal, imo.

Since Barack Obama was under a court order to deliver his birth certificate sometime in Oct. and still has not done so, he was obviously in contempt of court when he was elected.

Actually I thought it had been settled until I saw this.

It just seems like it would have been so easy to comply and not cause all this doubt.

OK, I did check out more information. Unfortunately, I believe it's a false assumption to believe that the Supreme Court has ordered Obama to produce that original copy of the birth certificate. Actually, Obama and his legal team, as I understand it, have until 12/1 to just file a response. Maybe they will ask to have it dismissed. That's what's up right now to the Supreme Court... whether or not this case will even be heard at all. So if the Obama team files a response and says, "Dismiss because..." and the Supreme Court DOES dismiss this, then Obama will have NEVER HAD TO PROVE BY original long form birth certificate that he was even ELIGIBLE to run for POTUS.

Travesty. Here's the most recent release from Berg and a link to the site:

For Immediate Release: - 11/07/08

(Contact information and PDF at end)

(Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania – 11/07/08) - Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States filed a Writ of Certiorari in the United States Supreme Court on October 30, 2008, requesting review of the United States District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Judge Surrick’s Dismissal of Philip J. Berg’s lawsuit against Barack H. Obama, Jr., the DNC and the other co-Defendants. Accordingly, the U. S. Supreme Court has set dates in which Barack Obama, the DNC and all co-Defendants are to respond to the Writ, which is on or before December 1, 2008.

Mr. Berg remarked today, “I look forward to receiving Defendant Obama's response to the Writ and am hopeful the U. S. Supreme Court will review Berg v. Obama. I believe Mr. Obama is not a constitutionally-qualified natural-born citizen and is ineligible to assume the office of President of the United States.”

Mr. Berg’s case, Berg vs. Obama was dismissed from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Docket # 08-cv-4083 for lack of standing. Mr. Berg filed a Writ of Certiorari for review of the case and an injunction to stay the election pending review. Justice Souter denied the injunction. It is expected that the Court will decide whether or not to review Berg v. Obama after the Defendants file their response, and Mr. Berg has replied to the Defendant’s response.

The Defendants' response is due by December 1st and Mr. Berg's reply will be submitted thereafter.
