J. Berg, Esquire, the Pennsylvania attorney who filed a lawsuit 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. Berg is taking legal action in order
to view President-Elect Barack Obama's birth certificate and other similar
Surprisingly, no one has seen Obama's birth records and any effort to view them has been thwarted by his campaign and the so-called mainstream news media.
Berg's writ requests 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 Democrat National Committee and the other co-Defendants.
According to court documents, the US 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 told NewsWithView.Com, “I look forward to receiving Defendant Obama's response to the Writ and am hopeful the US 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.”
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
Berg said, "I [was] totally disappointed by Judge Surrick's decision and, for all citizens of the United States... I immediately appealed to the US Supreme Court."
"This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution. If I don't have standing, if you don't have standing, if your neighbor doesn't have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States - the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world - then who does?"
So, anyone can just claim to be eligible for congress or the presidency without having their legal status, age or citizenship questioned, Berg added, "According to Judge Surrick, we the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U.S. Constitution. What happened to ‘...Government of the people, by the people, for the people,...’ Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address 1863. We must legally prevent Obama, the unqualified candidate, from taking the Office of the Presidency of the United States,” Berg said.
The US Constitution stipulates: "No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States..."
"When Arnold Schwarzenegger ran for -- and won -- the governorship of California, many in the liberal Republican establishment and the new media lamented the fact that he was not an American-born citizen and therefore was ineligible to run for president of this nation. Now it seems these same people are looking the other way to avoid exposing Senator Obama as an unconstitutional presidential candidate," said political consultant Mike Baker in an interview with NewswithViews.com.
Berg, the plaintiff stated in court papers that he is a life long Democrat who had always been proud of his Party:
Plaintiff is a licensed attorney in good standing and has taken an oath to uphold the United States Constitution. Plaintiff and many other citizens of the United States have donated money and time to Democratic Presidential candidates as well as to the Democratic National Committee, in reliance on promises and assurances made by the DNC in the Democratic Party Agenda. It provides that the Democrat Party’s goals, among others, are to “restore accountability, honesty and openness at all levels of government”, to “restore the Constitution and protect the civil rights and liberties of all Americans” and to “uphold the Constitution.”
To uphold the Constitution includes making sure that the Presidential candidate is eligible to serve as President pursuant to Article II, Section 1 of our United States Constitution and that such candidate runs a fair and legitimate campaign.
In vetting the Presidential candidate the DNC and FEC are required to ensure the eligibility requirements pursuant to our Constitution are met and the Presidential candidate, if elected, would be eligible to serve as President. To be eligible and qualified to run for and/or serve for Office of the President of the United States a person must be a “natural born” citizen. United States Constitution, Article II, Section I. The natural born citizen clause has prohibited many prominent Americans from becoming President, including Governor Schwarzenegger and former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Henry Kissinger.

The DNC has nominated Obama as the Democratic candidate for President of the United States.
There are many unanswered questions regarding Obama’s citizenship status:
Is Obama a “natural born” United States citizen?
2. Is Obama a “naturalized” United States citizen?
3. Is Obama a citizen of Indonesia?
The Defendants' response is due by December 1st and Mr. Berg's reply will be submitted thereafter.
