Could Another Presidential Race End Up in the Hands of the Supreme Court?
With only a few short days to go before the November 4th presidential election, Attorney Philip Berg is appealing his “Obama eligibility” lawsuit to the U. S. Supreme Court. On Thursday, Berg filed a Writ of Certiorari and an application for an immediate injunction to stay the election. The story of the case, virtually absent from the mainstream media, is heavily detailed in Berg’s website, Obamacrimes.com.
Berg’s suit, Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-4083, had been dismissed in a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, federal court on the grounds that, as Berg states, “According to [federal] Judge Surrick, we the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U. S. Constitution.”

Included among Berg’s challenge to Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as president is the question of exactly where the candidate was born - Hawaii or Kenya? And perhaps of greater importance, the question of what nation is Obama a citizen - the U. S. or Indonesia, the country of which his stepfather was a citizen and where Obama, a/k/a “Barry Soetoro,” attended school.
Berg’s website provides an expert’s challenging detailed analysis of Obama’s alleged “official” birth certificate that has been posted on the candidate’s own website. And the question remains, even if Obama were a natural-born U.S. citizen, didn’t he forfeit that citizenship when his mother married an Indonesian, as dual citizenships are not allowed in either country?
One of the Hillary Clinton supporters who never switched allegiance to Obama, Democrat Berg is no stranger to longshot lawsuits. He filed suits against President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney in 2004, claiming they knew beforehand about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He also challenged the 2000 presidential election results and asked Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, and Sandra Day O’Connor to disbar themselves for their decisions in the landmark 2001 Bush v. Gore case.
Perhaps this current case is only sour grapes because Obama won the Democratic nomination over Mrs. Clinton. And furthermore, judging from his previous lawsuits, no one could intelligently suspect Berg’s a member of a right-wing consipracy intent on spoiling an Obama election victory.
The case is fascinating reading for the detail-oriented legal buff; it’s even more entertaining than a Judge Judy show. It would be no less than a miracle if the Supreme Court decides in Berg’s favor (considering he’s already made enemies with a couple justices on the court). It would be even a miracle if the Court takes the case in the first place. But this just could be the one miracle the McCain camp has been waiting for.
