I have just recently found a lawsuit being "fought" to determine the citizenship of Barack Obama. I simply cannot believe the mainstream media has not informed the Country of the presence and details of this lawsuit.
In the US District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania the suit has been filed by an attorney, Philip J. Berg. Mr. Berg is a Democrat, the former head of the Montgomery County, Pa. Democratic Party and a former member of the Democratic State Convention. This suit has been joined by the National Democratic Committee on the side of Obama and seeks to have the suit dismissed alleging Mr. Berg lacks standing to bring the lawsuit. The heart of the lawsuit appears to be a request Obama produce: (1). "Obama's "vault" version (certified copy of his "original" long version) birth certificate; (2). A certified copy of Obama's Certificate of Citizenship; (3). A certified copy of Obama's oath of allegiance. Apparently Obama has refused to supply such documents. He has recently been ordered by the Court to produce the documents.
The allegations necessitating the suit revolve around the location of Obama's birth and his subsequent citizenship of Indonesia. The scenario goes thusly. Obama's mother, late in her term carrying Obama she went to Kenya with her husband. She was resented by her in-laws and didn't like the way Muslim men treated women so she tried to return to Hawaii. Apparently the airlines refuse to allow her to fly due to her being very late term pregnant. So Obama, Jr. was born in Kenya. His father's family all verify this version and in Mombassa, Kenya there is registered the birth of one Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. on a date approximating when our Obama was born.
Alone this might not be significant as his mother was clearly at that time an American citizen. And as McCain was born in Panama and Sen. Barry Goldwater was born in Arizona Territory before Arizona became a state, legal reviews have supported the notion these folks met the Constitutional requirements of proper citizenship. There are records of "registry of birth" for Obama, on or about Aug. 8th, 1961 in Hawaii yet on two different occasions Obama's sister, Maya Soetoro told reporters he was born on Aug. 4th. 1961 at two different hospitals in Hawaii.
In Obama's case, he returned to Hawaii, but a few years later his mother married an Indonesian citizen, a Mr. Soetoro. They soon moved to Indonesia. In Indonesia Obama was adopted by Mr. Soetoro and was made and Indonesian citizen. His mother also became an Indonesian citizen. For Obama this was required as he had to be a citizen to go to school. At the time, 1967, American law required one to disavow their American citizenship if they became the citizen of another country, ergo he and his mother renounced their American citizenship. After a few years, Obama returned to Hawaii to live with his maternal grandparents. The law required him, at age 18 (the age of majority at the time), to apply to have his citizenship restored. He did not and has not are the allegations and he will not furnish document proving otherwise. If he in fact did not, he is not a US citizen and cannot serve in the Senate or as President.
This is a general overview of the lawsuit as I have been able to piece it together. I make no claim as to the veracity of the allegations. I know little about the merits and champion neither side. I just think it is absolutely amazing no one in the mainstream press has thought this important enough to inform the American people that Obama may not be legally qualified to hold the Office of the Presidency, and actually, the Office of Senator either.
The one thing I do know without any fear of contradiction is the life of a frivolous lawsuit in Federal Court is measured in seconds. Federal District Courts are a world unto themselves and proceedings are always held in an atmosphere of decorum and staid adherence to procedures and civility. I know this from experience with several cases and attorneys in more than one Federal Court. So for the Court to have held the hearing and issued the order to produce the document, the Judge must see the merits as warranting such. Since the lawsuit is obviously a serious one with some merit to have proceeded to this point, why, do you think, Obama hasn't just produced the documents requested and ended to case?
If you want to research, google, "Barclay Surrick" Obama and you will see 5,000 plus hits but after several "pages" of hits, I gave up on finding a mainstream media outlet as a source. (Barclay Surrick is the Federal Judge in the case)
